The women at the Nest know the needs that arise for first time foster and adoptive parents, and the children and teens entering new homes. Many of its volunteers have in some way been involved in that process themselves. The vision behind the Nest was the whole community coming together to support the hurting kids in our community, said Sarah Dumas.

The Nest has a foster closet at Glad Tidings Church, located at 1571 E. Duval St., with donated clothing available for purchase by foster and adoptive parents, and also by caregivers.

Thanks for reading.The church is the site of most of their events, like its recent video game night for local foster teens. Dumas said the group tries to provide for all needs of the parents whether emotional, physical or spiritual. We all have just a passion for it and love these kids and these families that are doing it, and are on the front lines, Dumas said. She founded the Nest in January, and since then the organization has grown. Things have kind of blossomed quickly, Dumas said. That growth has driven the need for more volunteers to operate its foster closet, to staff the numerous childrens events, and to serve as break away babysitters so local adoptive and foster parents can have a date night. Too often they get burned out, Dumas said. Its a lot of work. Its a lot of stress, but if you can take some of that burden off they can last a lot longer and the kids are more stable. Dumas said her experience as a foster parent, and the unexpected help that came from a fellow church member, led to the idea of the Nest. A sweet lady in our church every Wednesday would pick up a load of dirty clothes, wash them and bring them back the next day folded and dried, Dumas said. I couldve kissed the ground she walked on because at the time we had seven kids in our home. I realized the value of those times, where it was just those little breaks those little helps. The Nest foster closet is open Tuesdays from 1-3 p.m., and the second and fourth Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. 1 p.m. Dumas said either a placement letter or letter of guardianship was needed to make purchases from the store. The hope that we have is to eventually to grow to where we have resources and people throughout the whole community coming together, that we can meet needs more and more as more people get involved, Dumas said.

Blue Roof locale goes Cuban COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterBest known as the former site of the Blue Roof Grille, this building at the intersection of NN E Bascom NN orris Driv e and UU .S. High way 90 will soon reopen as the Pelletier Sisters Cuban Restaurant.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA family with a declared passion for authentic, fresh, Cuban cuisine will soon open a new restaurant in Lake City and along with an entirely renovated interior will keep remnants of the well known locations past. Pelletier Sisters Cuban Restaurant is expected to open in just under two weeks and the Pelletier family has been working around the clock to ready the building, which has undergone floor to ceiling renovations over the past three months. Its real authentic Cuban food, said Jennifer Pelletier, Pelletier Sisters chef and daughter of owner Javier Pelletier. Homemade, nothing out of cans fresh. Pelletier was at the soon to be finished restaurant Friday with her husband Jessie Rosario while crews worked on television systems. They said the restaurant was a collective family effort Javier, his wife Martha, Jennifer and Jessie. Jessie said theyve had residents stop by and ask about the dishes they will serve, and make requests for their own favorite Cuban dishes. A lot of people said it was their hangout, Rosario said. We want to bring that back. They said that was why the family brought back the blue roof, which harkens to previous well known dining establishments formerly at the location. We brought back what the people know this place for, Rosario said. For the blue roof. It is located at the intersection of NE Bascom Norris Drive and U.S. Highway 90. The interior now has decorative lighting with new masonry work along its walls, and newly painted ceilings, and they said they are planning for outdoor seating as well. Javier Pelletier, Pelletier Sisters owner, said he wanted to be known for the food. My biggest thing, where the food is coming from, said Pelletier. Its better youre a normal person, and everybody talks about you like, Man you should see how that guy cooks. I live that, thats my passion. The family moved to Lake City just under four years ago and own cattle locally. We just got tired of the Miami life, the city life, Jennifer said. There was nothing but trouble down there. We came to the country to have a more easygoing life, and better to raise the kids. Jesse said, Theres more respect up here. Their goal is to open the restaurant in about 10 days, and they have a grand opening celebration in mind to mark the occasion.Pelletier family gears up for grand opening
By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe door swung open as two guards marched in, escorting the condemned prisoner between them. In the decades since, hes been painted as an almost-mythological predator a killing machine like Hannibal Lecter, the cases lead prosecutor said in reflection. Bob Dekle didnt see a wolf in Ted Bundy that day. He was as white as a sheep, said Dekle, a retired Third Circuit prosecutor from Lake City. Documentaries about Bundy tend to glamorize his crimes, Dekle said, and nearly always downplay the importance of his last murder Dekles case. But Dekle said hes hopeful that an upcoming four-part CNN documentary hes featured in will pierce the popular myths and show the real Bundy. Theres nothing glamorous about a murdering child molester, Dekle said. The season-three premier of How it Really Happened on CNN sister channel HLN will feature the first two parts Oct. 7, with the second half airing Oct. 14. Dekle sat down for an interview with the show late last year, recounting how he helped build the case against Bundy for the 1978 abduction and murder of 12-year-old Lake City schoolgirl Kimberly Leach the final victim. Bundy confessed to killing 30 women and girls, but was ultimately executed for Kimberlys case. In February 1978, she went to her homeroom teacher to retrieve a purse and never returned to class. Most predators dont pick the strongest animal in the herd to take down, Dekle said. For the most part, theyre not really dangerous to people who can be dangerous back to them. And that fits Bundy up and down. Less than two months after Kimberlys disappearance, authorities found her body in a hog shed near Suwannee River State Park, about 35 miles from Lake City. Dekle went to the scene himself. I had to fight my way through law enforcement officers, he said. Kneeling over the body, Dekle noticed the clothes matched what Kimberly was last seen wearing. I had the description memorized, he said. I said, thats Kim. Couldnt be anybody else. The investigation and prosecution hinged on three pillars the scene where Kimberlys body was found, the van that Bundy abandoned as a fugitive in Tallahassee and the Volkswagen he was driving when authorities arrested him. Everything revolved around placing Bundy and Kimberly in the van at the same time, Dekle said. If they were together in the van, he killed her, Dekle said. Theres no other conclusion you can draw. Clothing fibers, shoe tracks on the vans bumper and blood stains hidden under dirt inside the vehicle helped link it to Bundy, Dekle said. After an ironworker in Jacksonville thwarted an attempt to kidnap his sister, both siblings gave accounts matching Bundy with the van. Eyewitnesses from Lake City provided similar statements. A major piece of evidence came into play after the owner of a sporting goods store said he sold a hunting knife to Bundy. Investigators never found the knife, likely the murder weapon, Dekle said, but they did retrieve the receipt for it from the van. Prosecuting Kimberlys case was seen as a waste at the time, Dekle said. Everybody assumed Bundy would be executed for a bigger case, the Chi Omega sorority murders at Florida State University, Dekle said. Bundy attacked five women there, killing two and leaving three survivors. Bundy received the death penalty for those crimes, too, but Dekles case got him to the electric chair first. The trial started in Orlando on January 7, 1980, and Bundy repeatedly tried to disrupt the proceedings, Dekle said. Violent outbursts, wild accusations, self-destructive behavior, he said. When death sentence was announced two years after Kimberlys murder, Dekle was standing a few feet from Bundy. I was elated, trying to maintain a poker face until the hearing was over, he said. I just spent two years of my life trying to get to that point. I thought that was the end, but really it was just the beginning. It took another nine years to carry out the execution. Prosecutors still had to go through post-conviction hearings, during which the killer exhibited bizarre behavior, Dekle said. Bundy tried to play crazy, he said. I testified that he was crazy like a fox. In hindsight, the ploy was never going to work, Dekle said but it seemed like it might at the time. Dekle worried the death sentence would be vacated. At several points, I was about as low as a human being could be, he said. In the lead up to the execution, there was talk that Bundys camp would again raise the issue of his mental fitness to face death. Finally, we got word that Bundy had opted not to play that card, Dekle said. Dekle arrived at Florida State Prison the morning of January 24, 1989. Nearly everyone who gathered in the prisons administration building to witness the execution had been involved in investigating or prosecuting the case. It was kind of like a family reunion, Dekle said. Spectators were taken by bus to another building and ushered into the viewing gallery. As the curtain in front of them opened, Old Sparky came into view opposite the glass window. On one side of the death chamber, a man was talking to someone on a phone before the guards brought Bundy in and strapped him to the chair. Dekle knew the executioner had flipped the switch when he saw the way Bundys body tensed up. His fist tightened, he said. I remember wondering how many throats those fingers tightened around. After the prisoner became dead weight in the chair, a doctor opened Bundys shirt and listened with a stethoscope. Took forever, Dekle said. Dekle remembers his reaction to the official announcement. I hoped to God I would never in my life be as happy over the death of another human being as I was that day, he said. Im actually ashamed of myself for being so happy.

In 1970, Niblack Sixth Grade Center introduced a new curriculum called MACOS, or Man: A Course of Study. Educators felt this pre-packaged program (games, maps, audiovisuals, etc.) would be a great teaching/ learning tool and, being humanities based, might ease the recent racial integration tensions. Teachers and students loved MACOS. Then one day Reverend Don Glenn, parent of a sixth grade girl and pastor at Montrose Baptist Church, visited the school; he requested and was given a copy of all MACOS materials. Rev. Glenn studied the materials and found what he saw as objectionable materials, based on his religious beliefs, and formed a study group of like-minded citizens and he became its president. Rev. Glenn and his study group attended a Niblack PTA meeting and told the group that local parents believed that schools should be supportive of Christian values taught at home but that MACOS did not do that but rather advocated sex education, evolution and gun control and asked that MACOS be dropped from the Niblack curriculum. Niblack teachers were astonished that Rev. Glenn saw any link at all between MACOS and those topics. All the MACOS teachers responded and said it was a great program and that the students loved it. For example, Quintilla Lynch spoke fervently about the excellence of the program and said Rev. Glenn should stop spreading distortions of the program and making unfair accusations. MACOS teacher, Rev. John Mills, also a Baptist preacher, spoke highly of the program and said it had students excited about learning and that parents should come to school, sit in on a classroom and see for them selves. Joyce Tunsil, a 25-year educator, said MACOS was a great program and pleaded for it to be kept in the school. Three students spoke and said, We are studying how man is different from animals in wonderful ways and We are not studying that man came from apes, and We are taught that we humans, unlike animals, have free will. Two weeks after the meeting a local storeowner bought four onehour radio programs for Rev. Glenn to speak against MACOS. He was straightforward saying, MACOS advocated sex education, evolution, gun control, and communism and that the MACOS material signaled the impending doom of parental control. MACOS caused controversy in the community, and the School Board, already facing enormous budgetary deficits and racial tension, felt they did not need another time-consuming problem so they toned down their MACOS support and the program was phased out. So, was MACOS a tremendous new advance in education or a Yippee Hippie curriculum? Now, like back then, it all depends on who you ask.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION Airbnb taking county by stormAs reported in Wednesdays paper, Columbia County is the fastest-growing spot in rural Florida for Airbnb, an online service for those looking to rent out their homes to travelers short-term. The company reported a 215 percent increase in renters visiting the area during a 12-month period, which translated into more than 4,000 guests between August 2017 and August 2018. Thats great for the 40 local Airbnb hosts, who averaged nearly $5,000 in extra income during that time for their efforts. So far, at least to our knowledge, there havent been serious reported conflicts with homeowners near the rental sites, as have made headlines elsewhere in recent years. One local host told us he avoids problems with neighbors by vetting carefully those who wish to rent from him. That is crucial to steering clear of raucous revelers who can turn a quiet neighborhood into a living nightmare, only to skedaddle the next day leaving disaster in their wake. Should such problems arise, local officials will be forced to deal with them. For now, best we can tell, its just good old fashioned American entrepreneurship at work. Still, wed like to hear from you. Drop us a line and tell us what you think.

In 1955, actor James Dean, 24, was killed in a two-car collision near Cholame, California. In 1988, Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev retired President Andrei A.

Morris Williams is a local historian and long-time retired educator.Evacuating for a big hurricaneAs Hurricane Florence approached, the ever-present survival question remained for residents in her path: Evacuate, or not? In Miami-Dade, some may be forgetting that sometimes its best to flee from a storm. Maybe the horrific tale of the impact of 1992s Hurricane Andrew should be part of the yearly lesson plan in every Florida school, with a condensed version printed on wallet-sized cards and distributed to new arrivals with cups of fresh orange juice at interstate welcome centers. Too much? Current education efforts certainly arent working, judging from a recent poll that found one in five Floridians wouldnt evacuate their homes if a Category 3 or 4 storm were barreling at them. That, of course, is exactly the scenario that had more than a million people in the Carolinas fleeing or staying in place as Hurricane Florence roared toward the MidAtlantic coast. The poll, conducted by the National Hurricane Survival Initiative, is a reminder that far too many people in our state grow complacent about or fail to fully comprehend just how vulnerable Florida is to Mother Nature. You would think after Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria last year more people would understand whats at stake, Craig Fugate, a former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Floridas emergency management division, said. The poll showed other worrisome gaps in knowledge. Close to onethird of respondents didnt realize they can kill themselves if they try running a generator indoors, and others demonstrated a lack of basic understanding about their hurricane and flood insurance coverage a knowledge gap thats costly or impossible to recover from after a major hit. But its the blase response to a major hurricane that is the most disturbing, especially considering ongoing efforts by Miami-Dade and others to address shortcomings in hurricane preparedness from a government and individual perspective. Another recent survey, by the University of Miamis College of Arts & Sciences, indicated more than 80 percent of Floridians felt very or somewhat prepared. Thats encouraging, but work obviously remains to be done. Perhaps residents need to hear more personal accounts from people like Rose Healy, one of many survivors whose stories can be found in the Miami Heralds archives. Ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Irma last year, she told the Herald about her harrowing experience 25 years earlier as Andrew pummeled her home. ... She climbed to the second floor of her Killian house only to see a whirlwind of debris flying through the sky. Her roof was gone. She ran back downstairs, where all the windows were exploding, and was lifted a foot off the floor by a gust as the front door flung open. She and her sister closed it and held it closed until they thought their hands would break off. Healy huddled with her mother and her sister in their garage until the storm finally passed. Afterward, outside, everyone was walking around like zombies, Healy said. Our neighborhood was reduced to a pile of timber. That timber pile isnt exactly ancient history. Nor are other destructive, life-changing and life-ending storms that hammered Florida. Theyre fresh memories for survivors. And their stories could have tragic sequels in this hurricane season and in many after it if one in five Floridians really think theyre tougher than a major hurricane.

After deputies responded to the scene, Hall instigated a fist-fight, but was subdued with a taser, according to the report. Once in custody, Hall claimed cats and alligators were all around him and were trying to kill him, according to the report. When a deputy noticed dried blood on Halls shoes and asked if cats and alligators were responsible, Hall said he killed his girlfriend and her body was still at his home, according to the report. Deputies found the body of a woman identified as Sherry Croker pushed between a mattress and wall. Hall admitted to bashing Croker in the head with a baseball bat, according to the report. Bags of crystal meth and five hypodermic needles were also retrieved from the home. Hall had only been out of prison for about half a month when authorities found the body. He was released July 25, after serving about two years for meth trafficking or distribution in Columbia County and dealing in stolen property in Suwannee County.

Mildred ELiz Curry, 23, of Northwest Wilson Street, was arrested on a battery charge after the Lake City Police Department responded to the Circle K near U.S. Highway 90 and Interstate 75. The victim said she and another woman had been arguing online before she came to work so when Curry arrived at the store, she immediately feared a confrontation, according to LCPD. Curry confronted the other woman and her manager in a hallway and was told to leave, officers say. As the employee walked away, Curry approached her from behind, reached around and struck her in the face, according to LCPD. Curry fled before officers arrived, but surveillance camera footage captured the altercation. CurryLCPD: Online spat gets real when woman struck at convenience store

Trailing by one, inches away from the end zone, the Tigers kept the extra-point unit off the field, instead opting for the two-point conversion. The gamble didnt pay off as Jordan Smiths keeper was stuffed. Â Trinity Christians biggest defensive stop of the game allowed the Conquerors to hold on for a 31-30 win over the Tigers Saturday night. Â When you get an encroachment [penalty] and then get another with half the distance to the goal-line, it can be but three inches we got to get in, Columbia coach Brian Allen said. So at the end of the day, I like my squad. I like what we do in the off-season, I like who we are as a program. If I have three inches to get in, Columbia is supposed to be in the end zone, so Im going to make that call every night of the week. Despite committing four turnovers, three of which in the second half, the Tigers preserved and clawed back late. Columbia defense held the Conquerors to a field goal with three minutes to go, setting up Columbias methodical final drive. The bout went back and forth all night, each team trading blows, but in the end, it was the Tigers who couldnt land the last punch. Â I dont think we took as many shots [downfield], Allen said of the second-half woes. But I know we had some opportunities. The ball sailed on us on a little bit, but we had turnovers.

Indians topple Red Devils Fort White defense lifts team over Williston for third win of the seasonBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White knew it would have to contain Quinyon Mitchell to be successful against Williston. The Indians prepared all week for the star running back, and their hard work paid off Friday night. The tribes stout defense held Mitchell to one touchdown and 58 rushing yards. The unit forced three turnovers and kept the Red Devils scoreless in the second half. It was the solid defensive performance that helped Fort White pull away from Williston 32-12 at Arrowhead Stadium. Fort Whites offense exploded for 392 yards, capitalizing on defensive stops. For the Indians, it was a much-needed victory coming off last weeks loss to Bradford. Its the greatest feeling to come in and put away them boys, like we were supposed to do Bradford, receiver/cornerback Donovan Jenkins said. [Mitchell] is a great athlete. He had some big runs, but for the most part we kept him out of the endzone and kept them to 12 points, which is a big win for the defense. Fort White running back Stanley Maxwell bounced back from a rough outing last week going for 202 rushing yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Dylan Blair also had a strong performance, registering 156 passing yards and four touchdowns. He led the Indians to three consecutive scoring drives in the opening quarter. Blairs productive night was key in the tribes fourth-straight win in the series over Williston. It feels amazing, Blair said of the rebound win. Our coaches just tell us to have fun and play the way you know how to play. Fort White (3-2) did however come out a little shaky against Williston (1-4). Blairs first pass of the game was intercepted by Mitchell. Less than four minutes later, CJ Strange found Williston receiver Jermon Collins for a 20-yard touchdown. Fort White didnt trail for long, though, scoring on its next three Fort White 32, Williston 12 TIWAHE continued on 4B TIGERS continued on 8B B1

Yamamoto got his second of the game early in the third period, tapping a goalmouth feed from Drake Caggiula behind goalie Mike Smith to complete the scoring. Yamamoto has six goals in six exhibition games. Yanks Sabathia banned 5 games for hitting batter, appeals BOSTON (AP) New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia was suspended five games Saturday for hitting a Tampa Bay batter, a penalty that wont take effect until next year. Sabathia appealed the ban that was issued by Major League Baseball. Any games he misses will come at the start of the 2019 season. The Yankees will host Oakland in the AL wild-card game on Wednesday. Sabathia was penalized for hitting Rays catcher Jesus Sucre in the leg leading off the bottom of the sixth inning at Tropicana Field on Thursday. The 38-year-old lefty was ejected, and the benches cleared. It is what it is, Sabathia said after the Yankees 8-5 win at Boston. Everybody saw what happened. Sabathia was cruising with a big lead when he got tossed. He needed two more innings to trigger a $500,000 bonus for pitching 155 innings this season. In the fifth, Sabathia hit Jake Bauers in the wrist with a pitch. In the top of the sixth, Rays pitcher Andrew Kittredge threw up-and-in to Yankees catcher Austin Romine. Kittredge was suspended three games and fined. Sabathia also was fined an undisclosed amount. Asked if it bothered him that Kittredges penalty was shorter, Sabathia said, Yeah, kind of. Kraemers 4 TDs spark Drakes 41-9 rout of Jacksonville JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Grant Kraemer threw four touchdown passes and Drake rolled over Jacksonville 41-9 in the Pioneer Football League opener for both schools Saturday. The PFL Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for six touchdowns against Missouri S&T, Kraemer now has thrown 10 touchdown passes in his last seven quarters of play. Kraemer threw his first touchdown pass, 25 yards to Steven Doran midway through the first quarter, the first of three first-half TDs for the pair to stake the Bulldogs (2-1, 1-0) to a 31-0 advantage after a half. Jacksonville (1-2, 0-1) pinned Drake deep in its own territory and collected a safety when the Bulldogs could not successfully punt from their own 3, but Kraemer answered with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Mitch McFarlane to start the fourth quarter. Kraemer finished 16 for 24 for 176 yards with an interception. Doran had five catches for 103 yards and three TDs. COURTESYHow sweet it isFort Whites junior varsity team finished out the season 5-0 with a 41-6 win over Williston Thursday night. Its the first time in school history a junior varsity foot ball team has ended the season undefeated. The boys are pictured above after the win this past week at Arrowhead Stadium. By DICK SCANLONAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Blake Snell didnt stick around long enough to win his 10th straight start, but the Tampa Bay Rays lefthander felt he solidified his chances for the Cy Young Award in his final appearance. The Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 on Saturday night. I feel like I have a pretty good case, said Snell, who leads the American League in wins (21) and ERA (1.89). Theyre going to pick who they pick. I dont have a say, but the work that I did put together, its a great case to have. Snell gave up a run in the first inning and left after five with the score tied at 1. He gave up three hits and four walks (three in the first inning) and struck out 10. Three walks in the first inning, thats rough, he said. Ive got to be in the zone more, but in between that was very good. Im happy the way the season ended. Snell, whose last loss came on July 12, finished with a 21-5 record. In 14 starts at home, he never gave up more than two runs and finished with an ERA of 1.27. He was trying to become the first pitcher to win 10 straight starts within a season since Justin Verlander with Detroit in 2011. The last 10 pitchers to lead the American League in wins and ERA won the Cy Young Award, and Rays manager Kevin Cash thinks Snell will make it 11. Theres really not much debate, in my opinion, Cash said. Diego Castillo (4-2) got the win with two innings of relief. Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his 25th save despite giving up a pinch-hit homer to Reese McGuire. C.J. Crons 30th homer got Tampa Bay on the board in the second against Toronto starter Ryan Borucki (4-6), and Austin Meadows put the Rays ahead for the first time with another homer off Borucki in the seventh. It was the sixth homer of the season and the first as a Ray for Meadows, who was acquired along with pitcher Tyler Glasnow in the July 31 trade that sent pitcher Chris Archer to Pittsburgh. Jon Berti led off the game with an infield single, stole second and scored the run off Snell on Rowdy Tellezs sacrifice fly. With Snell out of the game, Teoscar Hernandez Rays, but not Snell, beat Blue JaysRAYS continued on 5BBy FRED GOODALLAssociated PressORLANDO No. 13 UCF is unbeaten and getting better. Thats whats most important to coach Josh Heupel right now. Not whether Saturdays 45-14 rout of Power 5 conference opponent Pittsburgh sent a message to the College Football Playoff selection committee or skeptics who question how good the Knights are because of their schedule. Were 1-0 this week. The outsiders are going to judge it as they may, Heupel said after McKenzie Milton threw for 328 yards and four touchdowns to help the defending American Athletic Conference champions extend the nations longest winning streak to 17 games. Our football team focuses on the daily task at hand. They are continuing to grow together. They are continuing to buy in to what were doing, the coach added. Thats allowing us to play better in all three phrases. (Pitt) is a football team from one of those other conferences and we handled our business today. A week after accounting for six TDs in a lopsided victory over Florida Atlantic, Milton also ran for two scores to give the junior from Kapolei, Hawaii, seven TDs passing and five rushing in his past two games. UCF (4-0) now moves into the heart of its AAC schedule, hoping to go undefeated for the second straight year to play its way into consideration for a spot in the CFP. Theyve been undefeated for a year. They havent lost a game, Pitt receiver Rafael Araujo-Lopes, who born in the Orlando area and played at nearby Winter Park High School. Thats a talented team. They get what they deserve. Pitt (2-3) has had a knack for stunning teams with national title aspirations in recent seasons, however the Panthers were no match for a Milton-led offense thats scored at least 30 points in every game during its schooland AAC-record winning streak.Milton accounts for 6 TDs, No. 13 Central FL. routs Pittsburgh 45-14 B2
SUNDA Y, SEPTEMBER 30, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B Hunting land leasing a trend of the future By MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterA few decades ago, we just loaded up in our pickup truck and drove out to the woods to go hunting. Seems like timber and paper companies owned huge tracts of land in our area and allowed hunters and dirt bikers free access to it. Then the laws changed and hunters needed permission to hunt land privately owned that was fenced (in other words, dont cross a fence.) Now the general rule of thumb is do not hunt on land that is privately owned without permission, fence or no fence, posted signs or not. Floridas law pertaining to trespassing can be found under Chapter 810 of the Florida Statutes. This statute states the crime of trespass is committed when a person: willfully enters or remains on some form of real property without authorization, license, or invitation; or returns to or ignores a prior warning to stay off real property. The good old days of free access are over. But that doesnt mean we cant hunt, we just have to do it legally. A lot of landowners have changed their position on allowing hunters to access their property because of liability issues and the risk of damage to the property. Especially when they do not benefit at all from the arrangement. This why we have companies that serve as leasing agents such as Legacy Wildlife Services in Lake City. Leasing land for hunting allows the landowner to bring in extra income to help pay the taxes and most importantly, it allows the landowner to know who is accessing their land. Several years ago, a close family member of mine, Larry, told me of situation on a farm that he owns and rarely visits. He has leased this land to a farmer for nearly half-a-century. Larry periodically becomes discontented with the income the property produces and complained about that to the farmer who cultivates his land. The farmer suggested extra income could be realized by leasing the property for hunting. Larry didnt think anyone was hunting on his farm but agreed to lease it through a leasing agent to a group of four hunters. The new hunters posted the property and put up deer stands. When hunting season opened, the hunters and the leasing agent came into contact with several other individuals who were trespassing and hunting on the farm without permis sion. The hunters encountered one trespasser who said he had hunted this land for years and was willing to fist fight the hunters for his right to hunt the property. In lieu of a fight, the hunters called the Sheriff and the trespasser realized his best course of action was to leave. Larrys property is now properly posted, he knows who is accessing it, the hunters have signed waivers for liability, they carry liability insurance should an unforeseen event occur, and the income he derives from the hunters just about pays for all of his property taxes. Since he used a leasing agent, Larry doesnt deal directly with each hunter, he just deals with one person. So owning land sometimes means having to deal with complex situations. Not all of us are knowledgeable of the legal requirements for leasing, trespass laws, and the liability issues. Legacy Wildlife Service in Lake City offers landowners all of the benefits Larry received and more. Jeff Bewsher is a Wildlife Biologist with Legacy Wildlife Services and stated his company provides the contracts for various leasing arrangements, advertises for hunters, secures hunting insurance, provides security recommendations and offers wildlife management guidance. In addition Legacy Wildlife Services conducts a GIS and aerial survey of the property, helps resolve hunting lease boundary disputes, and promotes ethical hunting I have to confess, my close family member, Larry is my father. We had no idea there was so many trespassers on the farm. The trespassers were people who lived close by. These were our neighbors. None of them were malicious. We just had no idea they were there but had an accident occurred we may have been liable. If you would like additional information regarding leasing property for hunting either as a landowner or a hunter, contact Jeff Bewsher at (386) 438-5896 or JeffB@ LegacyWildlife,com.COURTESYTOP: A Legacy Wildlife Biologist helps identify the boundary of a lease for a hunter.

FWC announces winners of 2018 Lionfish ChallengeFrom staff reportsAt its September meeting in Tallahassee, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) announced the winners of the 2018 Lionfish Challenge. A total of 28,260 lionfish were removed from Florida waters as part of this years challenge, which included recreational and commercial categories as well as a new tagged-lionfish component, rewarding participants with prizes up to $5,000 for removal of FWC-tagged lionfish. This is another commendable effort by Floridas recreational and commercial divers to help control lionfish populations and remove the invasive species from our waters, said FWC chairman Bo Rivard. Recreational winner and Lionfish King John McCain of Gilchrist County removed 1,137 of the lionfish. Although he was unable to attend the meeting, this is McCains third year participating in the challenge, in which he won third place the first year and second place the second year. McCain works for Dive Rite. Ron Surrency of Duval County is the Commercial Champion for his removal of 5,017 pounds of lionfish (which equates to about 5,531 fish). Surrency targets lionfish and other reef fish species commercially with partners Jason Whetmore and Mark Irwin on the vessel Joyce Marie.COURTESY2018 Lionfish Challenge Commercial Champion, Ron Surrency, with FWC Commissioners.

In the second quarter, the Red Devils answered with a 40-yard scoring drive, capped off by Mitchells 1-yard touchdown run. Blairs second touchdown pass to Roberson extended the Indians advantage to 25-12 just before halftime. We did OK, head coach Demetric Jackson said after the game. I still dont think were playing where we should. Weve been giving up too much yardage when we know what [plays] theyre running. So we got to sure that up. Anytime you get a win, thats a good thing. Im happy that we won, so at least thats good, were on the right track. The Red Devils never were able to jumpstart their offense in the second half behind Strange, who was held to 83 passing yards. Fort White ultimately put the game out of reach early in the fourth when Blair topped off his night with a 1-yard touchdown run. Fort White didnt have much time to celebrate the victory, with a rescheduled game against regional foe Providence on tap for Monday night (6 pm). We just got to ice up and go over film, Jenkins said. And make sure on Monday that we come out with that same fire and intensity.

By DAVID BRANDTAssociated PressSTARKVILLE, Miss. Feleipe Franks threw for 219 yards and Floridas defense dominated in the Gators 13-6 victory over No. 23 Mississippi State on Saturday night. Coach Dan Mullen won in his return to Starkville, guiding Florida to success in his first appearance at Davis Wade Stadium since leaving Mississippi State in November after nine mostly successful seasons. Florida wasnt great offensively, but it didnt matter. The Gators (4-1, 2-1) broke through in the third quarter when Franks threw a lateral to Kadarius Toney, who then threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Moral Stephens for a 10-6 lead. From that point forward, Florida slowly grinded toward the win. A 10-play, 36-yard drive in the fourth quarter led to a 21-yard field goal by Evan McPherson giving the Gators a 13-6 lead and the Mississippi State offense was never able to respond. We found a way to win a different style game, Mullen said. In this league youre doing to win all different styles of games. Last week we won with the big play. This week we won by grinding it out. Mississippi State (3-2, 0-2) had its chances to win and led 6-3 at halftime. The Bulldogs looked like they were going to break the game open in the third quarter when Nick Fitzgerald fired a perfect pass downfield to Osirus Mitchell, but the ball bounced awkwardly off his hands and fell to the turf. The Bulldogs had one more chance late in the fourth quarter, but Fitzgerald was sacked on fourth down. Mississippi State has scored just one touchdown over the past two games. Were going to have to find a way to start scoring some points, Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead said. Very frustrating. Mullens Gators took the field to plenty of cowbells and lots of boos before Saturdays game, though the reception wasnt much worse than most opposing teams get in Starkville. Once the game started, highlights were limited. Both teams stuck to a conservative, ground-based offense that produced no first-half touchdowns and the Bulldogs took a 6-3 lead into halftime. EMOTIONAL MULLEN Mullen got a little choked up when talking about some of the conversations he had after the game with his former Mississippi State players. Mullen had a 69-46 record over nine seasons in Starkville. Its hard to explain the coach-player relationship, Mullen said. Its such an unbelievably tight relationship. THE TAKEAWAY Florida has now won three straight games since losing to Kentucky in the second week of the season. The Gators leaned on their defense one week after the offense carried them to a 47-21 win over Tennessee. It was another ugly performance from Mississippi State, which also lost to Kentucky 28-7 last week. The Bulldogs have no rhythm offensively and are struggling to both run and pass. Its obviously very early in the coach Joe MoorheadMississippi State marriage, but right now, its a little rocky in Starkville. Mississippi State managed just 202 total yards.

Neither was Seminoles defensive back A.J. Westbrook. But Louisville, up three with the ball at the Seminoles 21 and the clock running under 2:00, did just that, and Westbrook, a senior safety, stepped in front to get the interception his team desperately needed. Five plays later, Deondre Francois connected with Nyqwan Murray on a 58-yard touchdown pass with 1:13 left to give the Seminoles a wild 28-24 come-from-behind victory Saturday. For most of the day, it looked like Florida State (3-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) would go to 0-3 in conference play for just the second time and continue the tailspin started after blowout losses to Virginia Tech and Syracuse. Instead, they ran to the locker room jubilant with a victory that could reverse their fortunes for the season. We needed this win to continue the progress that were trying to do with our football program, Taggart said. This was huge for our team. Francois completed 16-of-27 passes for 294 yards and a career-best four touchdowns. Murray caught six for 114 yards and two scores. Louisville (2-3, 0-2) sought a win for many of the same reasons Florida State did. The Cardinals offense had looked lethargic in recent weeks as the team was ranked among the bottom of bowl subdivision squads in passing, rushing and total offense. For most of the afternoon, it looked like the Cardinals had cured their offensive ills. Jawon Pass, who was removed as Louisvilles starting quarterback before coming back in a relief role in last weeks 27-3 loss at Virginia, started and threw for a season-high 306 yards and two scores on 24-of-45 passing. He also went 6-of-7 for 57 yards on an 11-play, 70-yard drive late in the first half that culminated with a 3-yard pass to Dez Fitzpatrick to make it 21-7 Cardinals (2-3, 0-2) with :10 left in the first half. However, he also threw two interceptions. The first was the one Westbrook picked. It stopped a four-minute drive that saw the Cardinals move the ball 50 yards and force Florida State to start burning timeouts. Taggart was telling his players theyd need to strip the ball to get the takeaway they needed, but then Westbrook said he saw Cardinals tight end Mickey Crum make a gesture to Pass on the pivotal play. So, I just sat there and jumped it, he said. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino took responsibility for the play calling. I look back at it, obviously, I should have ran the ball, a somber Petrino said in the postgame press conference. I did know what they were in, and I was expecting him to throw the hitch into the field. Its my job to make sure were on the same page. I didnt get that done. A tough road still remains for the Seminoles, with ranked opponents Miami, Notre Dame and Clemson looming on the schedule. However, Saturdays win, and the rallying effort it took to secure it, can only help the first-year coach and his team. Were not completely there, but our guys are working really hard to get it how we want it, Taggart said. I thought today was another jump in that direction. THE TAKEAWAY Florida State: The Seminoles found ways to make big plays and claw back into a game where they trailed by double digits for most of the second half. All three second-half touchdowns were passing plays that went for at least 25 yards. Taggart credited Francois and his receiving corps for their work. Deondre can throw the football and weve got guys who can catch it and run. Weve got to continue to use that, Taggart said. I can only imagine when we finally get our running game going, it will really help this offense go like were capable of. Louisville: The Cardinals offense did look improved and more efficient, but mental errors still continue to plague the unit. Pass had a couple of overthrows to open receivers downfield that could have blown open the game for Louisville. Instead, those missed opportunities allowed the Seminoles to stay in the game, and Pass late play proved devastating. ETHERIDGE RETURNS Louisvilles defense has been hampered by the injury bug all season, but the Cardinals did get one of their playmakers back Saturday. Dorian Etheridge, who missed the last two games after injuring his ankle in the first half against Indiana State three weeks ago, started for the Cardinals and made a team-high five tackles. The sophomore linebacker was an ESPN All American last season. UP NEXT Florida State goes on the road again and plays No. 16 Miami next Saturday. Itll be the third straight conference road game for the Seminoles.Francois, Murray rally Noles past the Louisville Cardinals B4

Tommy Pham led off the Tampa Bay sixth with a single, extending to 31 his streak of games in which he has reached base safely, the longest active streak in the majors. He scored on Brandon Lowes two-out single, tying it at 2 in the sixth. Borucki gave up four runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings, and finished September 1-3 despite a 2.65 ERA over 34 innings. It was just good to prove myself and get that confidence that I can get these guys out, these hitters out, said the rookie left-hander. For so long you think these guys are invincible and they never get out, but just being up here and just really proving to myself I can do this is definitely a confidence boost going into . RUSSELLS REIGN Blue Jays manager John Gibbons has decided to let 35-year-old catcher Russell Martin manage the team in Sundays regular-season finale. Im having a little fun with it, Gibbons said. Let him see how tough it is. Martin hasnt played since Sept. 3 because Toronto is looking at younger catchers. The team announced Wednesday that Gibbons will not return as manager next season. TRAINERS ROOM Blue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada, bothered by lower back soreness, will not make his final scheduled start Sunday. We talked about it, Estrada said. Obviously, Ive been feeling some stuff, so they kind of figured whats the point. Done enough, lets just rest now. Estrada, 7-14 with a 5.64 ERA in 28 starts in what could be his last year with Toronto, becomes a free agent after the season. UP NEXT RHP Sam Gaviglio (3-9) will make his 24th start for the Blue Jays, his fourth against the Rays, in Sundays season finale. The Rays will finish with a bullpen day, starting with RHP Ryne Stanek (2-3). RAYSContinued From 1B B5

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 OCTOBER 6, 2018Flipping at a distance not a great ideaDear Dave, I follow your advice and live on a budget, but its really hard to save up for a down payment on a house because property is so expensive here in New York. My family in Indiana says I should buy a cheap property there, then fix it up and sell it to get the money I need. Im not sure how I feel about this idea. What do you think? Adam Dear Adam, I think youd be smart to back away from their idea. Your family loves you and wants to help, but this is a bad plan. Fixing and flipping properties is a hands-on business. Theres no way Id try something like that from 700 miles away. It would be a nightmare! When you take on that kind of work you need to oversee every single step of the process. Youre also keeping an eye on the help you hire to make sure theyre doing things right. Think about this, too. You cant just find a house and expect to get a good deal. Professionals who flip houses for a living often look at dozens of different properties to buy just one. Its not an easy way to make money, and its not something I would advise doing from a distance. I know it can take a while to save up cash for a down payment on a home. But dont let a case of house fever push you into making a bad financial decision. Have you considered getting a part-time job for a while to bring in some extra cash? A house should be a blessing, not a burden. Trust me, waiting a while and saving up is a lot smarter than fixing and flipping houses three states away! Dave Get a fresh startDear Dave, I got laid off a couple of months ago, and Im behind on the payments for a rental property. I found a full-time job recently, but it doesnt provide enough income to cover my other bills and the mortgage on this property. The other day, I received an offer from someone who is willing to buy it for whats owed on the property. Im not sure thats the best thing, because I owe $70,000 and its worth around $150,000. What do you think? Travis Dear Travis, Youve got one thing right. You definitely need to get rid of the rental property. Im not sure Id jump at the offer you just received, but if I were in your shoes Id slash the price way below value and sell the place. Right now youre broke, and youre still trying to play real estate investor. Thats not a good plan. Id put a price tag of $100,000 on it, so you can move it fast and still see some equity in the deal. But sell it today! By doing this, youll have a nice chunk of cash in your pocket, and you can get something of a financial fresh start one that includes living on a written, monthly budget and staying out of debt!

Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS SpaceX has big plans for its new rocket. Can it pay for it? CHRISTINA HOUSE/Los Angeles Times/TNSA rendering of SpaceXs BFR rocket and spaceship system, which is intended to take passengers around the moon and eventually to Mars. By SAMANTHA MASUNAGALos Angeles TimesSpaceX has a growing list of future destinations for its BFR rocket and spaceship system most recently, a trip around the moon with a paying passenger on board. But funding for its development is far from secured. Satellite launches and NASA missions to the International Space Station are stable revenue streams for the Hawthorne company, possibly approaching $2 billion annually. But they arent necessarily going to put a major dent in the estimated $5-billion BFR development cost. And there are questions about whether SpaceXs proposed satellite broadband business will be operating and turning a profit by 2023, when BFR is scheduled to take Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa around the moon. That leaves space tourism as the wild-card and potentially most lucrative funding stream outlined this month by SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk. Its almost like a crowdfunding model, a very small, elite crowd, said Bill Ostrove, aerospace and defense analyst at market research firm Forecast International. Theyre paying for a little bit of development in return for those early flights. Analysts say the fledgling space tourism industry does show signs of demand. And it has the advantage of upfront payments. A 2012 report from a market research firm then known as Tauri Group found that about 8,000 highnet-worth individuals from around the world were sufficiently interested and have spending patterns likely to result in the purchase of a suborbital flight, similar to the minutes-long moments of weightlessness currently sold by Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin. Blue Origin, which has conducted several tests of its New Shepard crew capsule and rocket system, has not yet publicly released its ticket prices. Founder Jeff Bezos recently said the company would take people to space this coming year. Virgin Galactic charges $250,000 for a seat on its SpaceShipTwo vehicle, which is undergoing flight tests. Both companies plan to take tourists to suborbital space. A fourto five-day trip around the moon, like the one Maezawa committed to, would probably cost a lot more. In 2012, an executive from space tourism firm Space Adventures advertised a $150-million price tag for a seat on a lunar flyby mission with a Russian launch vehicle that was intended to launch last year but never did. Maezawa declined to say how much he paid for the SpaceX lunar flyby, noting only that he had submitted a down payment. Musk described Maezawas deposit as significant and said the overall payment will actually have a material effect on paying for the cost of development of BFR. Its a nontrivial amount, he said during the Sept. 17 event that revealed Maezawa as SpaceXs first private passenger for the BFR lunar flyby. Wealthy individuals may be willing to pay a premium for such a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But its unclear how many deep-pocketed passengers are out there and whether they would all agree to pay for part of the rockets development costs, said Ostrove of Forecast International. These incremental cash payments are a contrast to the large expected upfront investment for SpaceXs proposed Starlink constellation, which is intended to provide global broadband service via thousands of tiny satellites. In March, the Federal Communications Commission approved SpaceXs application to provide broadband internet access through Starlink. SpaceX has said the constellation would provide households and small businesses with internet service at fiber-like speeds, and launched the first two demonstration satellites in February. If tests of the satellites and ground equipment are successful, SpaceX could start launching operational satellites as early as next year and reach full capacity by 2024. That could put Starlink in competition with BFR for company resources, analysts said. The constellation wouldnt be able to generate positive cash flows until sometime after it becomes operational, said Tim Farrar, president of consulting firm TMF Associates in Menlo Park, Calif., who has counted satellite operator Intelsat and manufacturer SSL as clients. Starlink could be viewed as something of a distraction from pursuing the BFR plan, he said. Musk seems bullish on Starlink. On Sept. 18 he tweeted that Maezawas moon flyby would be livestreamed in high-definition virtual reality via the satellite system, which he said should be active by then. But in March, after the company received FCC approval of its broadband application, company President Gwynne Shotwell noted in a statement that SpaceX still had much to do with this complex undertaking. Other companies satellite broadband plans have run into hurdles. In 2015, Arlington, Va.-based OneWeb said its goal was to build 900 small satellites at a per-unit cost of $500,000 and estimated that development, launch and operations of its constellation would cost about $3 billion, according to reports at the time. But recently, there has been speculation that both costs ballooned past initial estimates. Earlier this month, a OneWeb executive declined to disclose whether the per-unit and total production costs had changed, according to trade publication SpaceNews. OneWeb said earlier it was months away from its first launch of 10 satellites. The company did not have an immediate response to a request for comment. There has been substantial investment in telecommunications satellite systems based in lowEarth orbit, said Carissa Christensen, founder and chief executive of market research firm Bryce Space and Technology. Last year, revenue from all satellite services totaled $128.7 billion, according to a report prepared by Christensens firm for the Satellite Industry Assn. trade group, including $2.1 billion from broadband. Its a compelling vision, but for any of those systems, theres no public business plan, business model or detailed business structure that tells you exactly how thats going to happen, she said. Until there is an articulated business model, I would be skeptical of any revenue projections. Analysts say the most reliable sources of funding for SpaceXs BFR are the companys satellite launches for commercial and military customers, as well as NASA contracts to deliver cargo and crew to the space station. SpaceX was awarded a contract of up to $2.6 billion to carry NASA astronauts to the space station for six missions. The first flight without crew of the companys Crew Dragon capsule is set for later this year, with a crewed flight scheduled for April. The company has already flown 15 cargo missions for NASA. In total, the company has netted $7.7 billion in NASA awards for both cargo and crew activities, according to a NASA Office of Inspector General audit released in April. The companys relationship with NASA has been frequently touted by both Shotwell and Musk, who tweeted his thanks to NASA the day the lunar passenger was revealed, saying he cant emphasize enough how SpaceX would not be where it is today without NASA. SpaceX has also rapidly increased its total launch rate. Last year, SpaceX launched 18 missions, and has launched 16 so far this year. On Wednesday, the company netted a contract with Japanese lunar exploration firm Ispace to launch a lunar orbiter on a Falcon 9 rocket in mid-2020, followed by lunar rovers in mid-2021. The value of the contract was not disclosed. SpaceX advertises launches on its workhorse Falcon 9 rocket at a starting price of $62 million, though flights on a reused first stage can be cheaper. SpaceX is now regularly landing its first-stage boosters back on Earth, and has turned them around for re-flight in as little as just over two months time. But theres a ceiling to this market. Last year, revenues for the entire commercial satellite launch industry were about $4.6 billion, said Mike French, senior vice president for commercial space at Bryce Space and Technology and former NASA chief of staff. The investment to date has been in market segments wher e you had an existing market to capture and drive profits, he said of SpaceXs business model. This would be more of an investment directly to the exploration drive.The first flight without crew of the companys Crew Dragon capsule is set for later this year, with a crewed flight scheduled for April.
WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 OCTOBER 6, 2018 BUSINESS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3C presentation to the Columbia County School Board detailing the program, called: Build My Future, modeled after a similar one in Missouri. Its basically a one-day event to bring the high school students in and let them touch and feel certain industry trade tools that are within the construction industry, Zecher said. Our goal is that maybe theyll be able to finish concrete and lay block, run equipment, frame, lay some shingles and do different things that have to do with construction. Zecher said he feels there is a need for this type of program in Columbia County because there are open jobs in industry and not a lot of young people taking an interest. I feel like weve almost skipped a generation for the trade, he said. This is a way for us to generate interest. I feel like there are a lot of kids that graduate from school who dont know what theyre going to do and this is a way to try to reach back to the youth and see if we can generate some interest in the construction trade. Lex Carswell, Columbia County Superintendent of Schools, also supported the concept, as did the entire school board. Im very excited to start the program with Zecher and his team, Carswell said. I think its a win-win for everyone. Any student we can get out from the schools out to the Columbia County Fairgrounds to see what construction and the future of construction looks like, I think is a win for them. Carswell said the construction industry is one that is flourishing. Im excited about his because this because this is not kids that may want to go into a certification program, but kids that may want to come out and immediately get a job as a parttime construction worker, he said. Were excited about this. Were looking forward to working with Zecher and his team. Zecher said he doesnt see an overwhelming number of young people looking to break into the construction industry. Most of the subcontractors that I use are older and you dont see a lot of young people, he said. Of course, construction is hard at times. Its sweating. Its hot, but its rewarding. Zecher said Build My Future is a big opportunity. Obviously, its a one-day event, so people arent going to learn how to build in a day, but our goal with it is to spark interest with the youth, he said. Theyll say, Hey, I may be able to do this. I may be able to do this for a living. Zecher said construction would give students an alternative if they didnt want to attend college. Not every student is made out for college, he said. We see that a lot right now, especially over the past 10 years. I hear all the time of kids graduating, have a lot of debt and dont have job. We have jobs. We just need able bodied willing people to work. There is tons of opportunities for jobs right now. Zecher got into the industry following in the footsteps of his father. His dad was a builder and he worked every summer with his father until he graduated. This program, what I envision is, will spark interest to the youth, he said. What theyre going to have to do to get to the next step is get involved with some type of program at the high school or college. The Build My Future program is new for Columbia County, but Zecher said hes received lots of positive feedback from the community. I havent gotten any negative responses and Ive talked to the Chamber of Commerce, School Board, multiple business owners and the local home builders association. We want the public to become aware that this is coming. It can become an annual event.An alternative to college and debt ZECHERContinued From 1CIts basically a oneday event to bring the high school students in and let them touch and feel certain industry trade tools that are within the construc tion industry.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. altering a will, and they can help you postpone or avoid some taxes. Assets that pass through trusts generally dont go through probate, so they can help you avoid unnecessary delay and expense, and can keep your arrangements more private. There are downsides to trusts, though. For starters, theyre often more complicated to create than a will. (A poorly drafted trust can be nearly impossible to execute.) Many professionals charge much more to draft a trust than a will, though it can still be worth the money. There are revocable and irrevocable trusts, and living and testamentary trusts (the last are linked with wills). Clearly, one can get confused quickly in the world of trusts. Its also not always easy to determine when establishing a trust is your best move. Read up on the topic before deciding, and consider consulting a professional or two. You can learn more in The Wall Street Journal Complete EstatePlanning Guidebook by Rachel Emma Silverman (Crown Business, $16) and American Bar Association Guide to Wills and Estates (Random House Reference, $18).Take This Stock for a SpinFew great dividend-paying stocks look more attractive than appliance titan Whirlpool (NYSE: WHR). The company is going through some tough times at the moment. In particular, the trade war building between the United States and other markets, such as China, has pushed up the companys steel and aluminum costs, which in turn have caused it to raise its prices in the United States. This is Whirlpools most lucrative market, and higher costs and weaker sales from consumer sticker shock have hurt its sales and profitability. But Whirlpool has been down this road many times before. After all, it is a cyclical company. Its management understands how to keep costs in check and shift its focus to higher-growth regions. In recent years, the company has been buying its way into Asia, which offers a double-digit annual growth opportunity. While sticker shock in the U.S. is a genuine concern, it tends to last for only a few quarters. Historically, the U.S. economy has expanded in 86 percent of the months since the end of World War II, and that bodes well for a brandname appliance maker. Fundamentally, dipping your toes in the water appears to make a lot of sense. With a forward-looking priceto-earnings (P/E) ratio recently of just 7.6, Whirlpool is as cheap as its been in a decade. It also offers a dividend recently yielding 3.7 percent. rffAvoid MarginThe dumbest investment that Ive been avoiding has been investing on margin. Thats because Ive learned lessons about it from other peoples experiences. For example, buying stocks on margin (that is, with money borrowed from a brokerage) leverages both your gains and losses. Also, you dont necessarily get to choose the bail-out point on a margin investment. If the stock falls and your equity drops below the minimum allowed percentage, a margin call will be triggered and your broker may sell some or all of your shares to bring you back to an allowed degree of leverage. So even if the stock bounces back, it may bounce back without you because of that margin call. I have very rarely received investing advice from my parents, who grew up in the Depression, but two things theyve said are: We know youre working to pay off debt, but you arent missing out on any 401(k) matching money, are you? and For goodness sake, dont buy anything on margin. They saw people in the 1930s lose their homes because of margin calls. T.B., online The Fool Responds: Youre smart to steer clear of using margin. As you noted, borrowing money with which to buy more stock can amplify your gains, but it will also amplify any losses while you pay interest charges. You dont need to use margin to make good money in stock investing. Military BreaksQDo military people get any tax breaks? D.L., Keene, New HampshireAThey do. For starters, some can exclude combat pay and other allowances and payments from taxable income, while combat pay can count as earned income for the Earned Income Tax Credit. Some reservists travel expenses are deductible, as are some moving expenses for activeduty personnel moving to a new permanent station. Families of fallen soldiers can take advantage of tax-favored accounts, and there is tax forgiveness for those who die in action, while in active service in a combat zone, or from an injury received in a combat zone. Those serving in a combat zone and certain others can also have their tax deadlines automatically extended by 180 days. IRS Publication 3, Armed Forces Tax Guide, will tell you much more.The Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act offers some protections against eviction, the delay of civil court actions, a cap on mortgage rates, and reduced interest rates on credit card debt. Learn more at defense.gov, irs.gov, and Fool.com/taxes.***QAre initial public offerings (IPOs) good investments? N.O., Dalton, GeorgiaAThey can be, but its generally best to steer clear of newly minted shares of stock until theyve had a chance to settle down.IPOs can be volatile and frequently dont fare too well in their first year. And its mainly well-connected investors who get shares at their low initial prices; the rest of us end up buying later, often after prices have risen considerably.Facebook, for example, debuted on the market in 2012. Shares were initially priced at $38 apiece, but after about a month they were near $30 and a year later near $26. (Of course, they were recently near $167.)Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.orgA Matter of TrustsIf you hold meaningful assets, its important to have some kind of estate plan in place, formalizing your final wishes even if youre still relatively young. Trusts can help with that. While trusts are commonly used by the wealthy, they can serve the middle class well, too. A trust involves assets being held by one or more trustees for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries, and it can be specific about when the assets go to the beneficiaries. (For example, it might be upon your death, or when an heir turns, say, 35.) Trusts can be used for many purposes, such as dividing ownership of property. They can be preferable to wills sometimes, too. Thats because they can take effect immediately, handling circumstances that wills cannot. For instance, if youre seriously injured, a trustee may take over your finances until youre able to assume responsibility again. Trusts can usually be changed without the formalities required for 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

This week, Congressman Neal Dunn and Republicans in the House took concrete steps to build upon the success of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act by making the individual and small business tax cuts permanent. The Tax Cuts 2.0 package of bills is a continuation of Republican efforts to ease the burden on hardworking Americans by providing certainty that the tax cuts they receive this year will remain year after year putting more money in the pockets of Floridians across the Second District. The package is composed of H.R. 6760, the Protecting Family and Small Business Tax Cuts Act, H.R. 6757, the Family Savings Act, and H.R. 6756, the American Innovation Act. Tax cuts matter, said Dunn, who represents southern of Columbia County in Congress. They mean greater economic opportunity for all Floridians. The people I talk to across the Second District tell me how their paychecks have gotten bigger and about the bonuses their companies have given them because of the tax cuts. We can talk about record lows in unemployment, rising wages, and the highest level of small business optimism in history. But what Im most excited about is hearing from the mom who tells me that she feels like she is better able to take care of her family because she has more money to spend on her needs, not the governments. Along with making the individual tax cuts permanent, the legislation creates a Universal Savings Account (USA) to give families flexibility in saving for the future. It also expands 529 Education accounts and allows families to access their retirement savings penalty-free when welcoming a child. Small businesses will be able to join together to create more affordable 401(k) plans, write off more of their initial startup costs, and expand the pool of investors without triggering limits on their access to tax benefits. We are unleashing our economy and putting hardworking Americans first the best is yet to come, Dunn said. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowered individual tax rates, doubled the child tax credit, roughly doubled the standard deduction, eliminated Obamacares individual mandate, and lowered the corporate tax rate to 21 percent. From staff reports Dunn Using an annual webbased report scorecard that measures, evaluates and benchmarks quality and efficiency at its medical centers, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs recently released data that showed significant improvements at the majority of its health care facilities. North Florida South Georgia Veterans Health System, which includes Lake City, was one of the facilities that made positive improvements in the benchmarks and is striving to continue progress. Per CDC statistics, 1 in 3 patients who die in a hospital have sepsis. North Florida South Georgia Veterans Health System identified sepsis as a high priority target. A Sepsis Initiative was implemented to ensure early identification and optimized treatment. Improvements in mortality (11 percent) and length of stay (4 percent) resulted. Methods to identify avoidable adverse events real time and to improve processes for prevention were put into place. This resulted in improved patient outcomes and we remain in the first quintile of SAIL for this measure. Access remains a significant opportunity for North Florida South Georgia Veterans Health System. Four major lease projects were authorized to modernize and improve services in Jacksonville Outpatient Clinic, Ocala Community Based Outpatient Clinic, Gainesville Primary Care, and Gainesville Mental Health. Additional clinic activations will include Lake City Primary Care, St. Augustine Replacement Clinic, Valdosta Replacement Clinic, and Clay County (new). Per Thomas Wisnieski, Medical Center Director, Improvement is part of our DNA. We have a long-standing history of identifying opportunities and using process improvements to address them. Ensuring the highest level of care is provided to our veterans is our everyday work. From staff reportsLocal VA hospital makes big strides, scorecard shows

Jenkins Jr. Veterans Domiciliary Home of Florida for approximately seven years, served in World War II. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Victor served in the U.S. Army, Army Air Corps (which later became the Air Force) and the Coast Guard. Victor retired from the military service as a captain in the U.S. Coast Guard. Victor began serving in the military in January 1942, a few weeks after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and war was declared by Congress. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps when he was around 20. Right after (Pearl Harbor), 100,000 other guys and I went down and enlisted, he said. He served in the military for 33 years, including active duty and reserve time. I volunteered for the service because war was declared and I felt it was my duty, Victor said. I didnt want to wait to be drafted and God only knows where you wind up when youre drafted. I had a choice of what I wanted to do by volunteering. Victor said he joined the Army Air Corps with the idea of going to preflight school and being a pilot right off the bat. As an Army Air Corps member, Victor was a member of a B-25 bombardier 7-man crew, where he saw action during World War II as the flight crews navigator. He was based out of North Africa and Corsica, a mountainous Mediterranean island. I was overseas dropping bombs on Italy, Sicily and southern France, he said. I went on 55 bombing missions. During his 55 bombing missions, Victor was often the navigator and sometimes the lead navigator. The navigator was tasked with getting the planes to their destinations on time as well as spotting the sites where the bombs were to be dropped. The way it worked, at 3 p.m. in the afternoon we were told to go to briefing at a certain time tomorrow morning, he said. We didnt know what was going to happen. When we Victor VICTOR continued on 4D The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak will host the 37th Annual Country Showdown Southeast semi-final State Final Oct. 6 for Americas largest country music talent search.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married to a wonderful man for 17 years. The drawback is hes a workaholic. We have not spent even one day together doing something fun in more than 10 years. We both work full-time and live on a small farm. My husband is a carpenter. He collects tractors and works hay fields all summer long. Because he comes in late each evening, I often eat dinner alone. On weekends, hes working on his tractors or cutting and baling hay. I do see him a bit more during the winter months, but he thinks its a waste of time and money to go somewhere nice for dinner or take a weekend getaway. When I do travel, it is with my siblings because my husband prefers to stay home and work. I love him, but Im beginning to feel like I am not his top priority. I am lonely for his companionship. I just dont know how to handle this. Hes pretty set in his ways. Help. -WITHERING IN WISCONSIN DEAR WITHERING: A husband who is unwilling to devote time to his wife doesnt sound wonderful to me. Perhaps you should consider having a snack after you return from work, so you can have dinner with him when he comes in. You appear to have a communication problem. Tell him what you want, and dont be shy about it. Say you love him but need more of him than he has given you for a long time. He needs to know his wife feels shes playing second fiddle to his tractor collection. If he is unwilling to listen, then you will have to evaluate whether you want to spend the rest of your life withering. DEAR ABBY: I am married to a successful mental health professional, and I applaud how you recommend therapy or counseling when it is called for. I have noticed that some of your readers have written, I tried it already, but it didnt work. To these people, my husband always says: Therapists are like shoes. Sometimes you need to try on a few before you find a good fit. And, like shoes, you can grow out of them and need new ones. Sometimes you need a more appropriate pair that matches a different lifestyle. (You wouldnt go running in high heels, or wear flip-flops to business meetings.) Ask to TALK to potential therapists before hiring one. Ask questions. Get a feel for their personality and style. Ask how they might treat different issues and what types of therapy they practice, and inquire about sliding-scale fees if money is an issue. If a therapists style doesnt match your needs, ask for a referral to someone else who might be a better fit. Abby, please encourage your readers not to give up. There is help out there for everyone. -MATT IN MARYLAND DEAR MATT: I like your spouses analogy and suggestions for finding a psychotherapist whos a good fit.

4D SUNDA Y, SEPTEMBER 30, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER By CATHERINE PRICELos Angeles TimesScreen Time, part of the operating system that iPhone owners began downloading last week, represents the biggest move yet by a technology company to encourage less use of a device, not more. Thats a good thing: According to data from a time-tracking app called Moment, Americans spend on average four hours a day a quarter of our waking lives staring at their smartphones. Screen Time, which is new with Apples iOS 12, automatically tracks how often you pick up your phone and how much time you spend on each app. It also allows you to set daily limits for time-sucks like social media, games or streaming video. Its a good start, but Apple could do more. A huge number of people need help creating better digital boundaries. Apple has already embedded multiple fitness features into its phones, and clearly sees this as a competitive advantage to its product. In my fantasy, screen-time-management features would be likewise integrated into a suite of apps lets call it iTime. Much like Apples Health suite tracks exercise, sleep, nutrition, even heart rate, iTime would support our mental health by centralizing features that control how and when we use our phones. For example, it could enable custom home screens assigned to different times or places: I would like to have a vacation screen that displays only the camera, maps, phone and iMessage. Id also like an automatic evenings/ weekends home screen that omits my work email, and an early-morning screen that gives just my alarm clock and meditation app. iTime might also give us the option to create lock boxes folders of apps that require a passcode. We could use those to store apps that we know have a tendency to suck us in such as social media, dating apps, even the news. Even small speed bumps like that make us less likely to start scrolling through Instagram on autopilot. iOS12 has some of this functionality in features called Downtime and App Limits, but theyre both rudimentary and easy to override. During its initial setup, iTime would offer a short intake quiz asking which specific apps youd like to dial back on using. It would also ask you to identify activities that youd like to spend more time on meditation, reading, music, exercise, family time and send you suggestions and encouragements. (Interestingly, Google added a feature called Goals to its Calendar app; you indicate what you want to dedicate more time to and it scans your calendar to schedule sessions for you.) iTime would also let users schedule unplugged sessions in advance and across iOS devices during which you would be completely blocked from your specified list of apps and sites. That feature used to be available through an app called Freedom which I used extensively but Apple recently removed Freedom from its app store. Ameris Bank announces its 9th annual Helping Fight Hunger food drive initiative taking place during October. All Ameris Bank locations, including those in Lake City, are collecting nonperishable food items to donate to local food banks as part of the company-wide initiative. The Helping Fight Hunger initiative will unite all bank locations, divi sions, customers and community members to one common cause: collecting food items for those in need in the fight against hunger. A food bank in every town with an Ameris Bank location will receive the donation of goods collected at the local bank branch, plus a monetary donation from Ameris Bancorp. Since the inception of Ameris Banks Helping Fight Hunger initiative in 2010, Ameris Bank has made a significant impact in the fight against hunger, collecting over 4.4 million food items that provided more than 6.3 million meals to families. More than $655,000 has been donated to 78 partner food bank organizations. Each year, our Helping Fight Hunger initiative directly impacts families in over 65 communities where we operate. Â Last year we collected nearly Â one Â million nonperish able food items for local food banks and donated an additional Â $100,000 to fur ther the reach of these critical organizations, said Ameris Bank CEO Dennis Zember. This year, Â we aim to br eak Â last years Â r ecord and collect more than one million Â food Â items. W e encourage our employ ees, community partners and customers to share in our passion for making a difference by donating food items that positively impact families in need. Ameris Bank believes in its communities and in the power of giving back. A collection box will be inside each Ameris Bank location where customers, employees and community members can participate by dropping off nonperishable food items during the month of October.

From staff reports got there we found out we were going to be in the first bombing on Rome by allied air forces. So, we took orders, bombed our target in Rome and came back. Although the men were following orders from their superior officers, Victor remembers there was a lot of young men of Italian decent from New York City in the corps and they were not exactly thrilled with the bombing orders. In those days, the old, widowed Italian women would go to mass every day, he said. As an officer, I had a sense of remorse, but the whole world knew we bombed Rome not just us, there was 360 planes. He said many of the guys got nasty letters after their mission asking, How could you have bombed the holy city? Victor originally enlisted in the Army and at one point was accepted as an Army Air Corps Aviation Cadet. I was going to be a hot pilot right from the beginning, he said. But when our class graduated from preflight school, they decided they needed bombardiers, so I went to bombardier school. I graduated and was commissioned as a bombardier. Then they decided they needed navigators, so most of our class then went to navigation school. When Victor returned from overseas, he put in for pilot training and got his wings as a pilot. During his time in the Army Air Corps he had served as a bombardier, navigator and a pilot. Victor transferred to the Coast Guard in 1950. He said he liked serving in the Coast Guard best of all the branches. All the other services train to take lives, he said. The Coast Guard trains to save lives. VICTORContinued From 1DWW II vet reflects on 33 years of service to his countryTONY BR II TT/Lake City ReporterJoseph G. Victor, 97, served in World War II, enlisting weeks after Pearl Harbor. As an Army Air Corps member, Victor was a member of a B-25 bombardier 7-man crew, where he saw action as the flight crews navigator. He participated in 55 bombing runs.Ameris Bank food drive The search for intelligent aliensBy CHABELI HERRERAOrlando SentinelFor decades, the search for life in outer space has focused on finding tiny microbes that would do little to satisfy a growing appetite for connection with beings that more closely resemble us. Its been the appetizer to the main course, a search for sophisticated creatures that truly deliver on the answer to one of humanitys central questions: Are we alone? Now, thanks to new interest in Congress for further scientific research, NASA is changing its focus to search for life advanced enough to, like us, create technology. The signs are called technosignatures, as compared with biosignatures, like in microbes, that show signs of life. Technosignatures come primarily as radio signals that allow scientists to infer the existence of technological life in the universe. A bill proposed in the U.S. House in April recommended that NASA receive $10 million to partner with private sector and philanthropic organizations to search for alien life. It wouldnt actually allocate the funds, and would still have to pass in the House and Senate, but it represents the first time in 25 years that the federal government has considered using funds to search for extraterrestrial life. The original program, called SETI, or the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, lost federal funding in 1993 after a year of research didnt turn up a single green little fellow, said then U.S. Sen. Richard Bryan of Nevada. Unlike SETI, NASA argues that the search for technosignatures goes a step further, focusing on radio or laser emissions, not just communication signals. Our own radio and television broadcasts have been drifting into space, so we may be able to receive signals from other beings, the agency said. And signs of large structures or an atmosphere full of pollutants like our own could prove that there is a civilization like Earths elsewhere in the universe. Whether NASA will find life outside our solar system is anyones guess. Astronomer Frank Drakes Drake formula postulates that there could be 10,000 intelligent civilizations in the galaxy. Italian physicist Enrico Fermis Fermi paradox asserts that if there was intelligent life out there, we would have met it already. But recent discoveries by the Kepler mission of multiple exoplanets, including some that have similarities with Earth, and the TESS mission, which recently launched a satellite that has already found two new exoplanets, have increased public interest in finding alien life. Itll have to be more an irregular radio signal to pass the test, though. NASA said that to answer the question of our place in the universe, it will need unmistakable signs of life.R EE D HUB EE R/Orlando Sentinel/TNSA SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying a TESS spacecraft lifts off on April 18, 2018, from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
