Man walks away from fiery crash Manhole still lacks a lid 2 years later Residents say its a dangerous eyesore.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comResidents fed up with an open manhole on a Lake City sidewalk say the area is a dangerous eyesore that has gone two years without a permanent fix. Now city officials say repairs might soon be underway. One longtime homeowner off SE Church Avenue and SE Pennsylvania Street said hes had enough. The elementary school is right down the road from here, said Daniel Adams. Kids come down this road, back and forth from school. Its a hazard and its dangerous. It is on the walkway. He said the manhole is badly designed and that when cars run up on the sidewalk they often knock the lid down the hole. Adams has lived across the intersection since 2003. He said for at least two years the only response from city workers has been to place spindly traffic barricades over the hole when the lid falls in. Its been at least four months (this time) and nobodys done anything about it, Adams said. Ive called.

Its not yet clear what caused the rig to overturn, but Riordan said it lost about 80 gallons of diesel fuel when it did, which only kept the fire going longer.

RECALLContinued From 1A WASHINGTON Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in Saturday night as the 114th justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, after a wrenching debate over sexual misconduct and judicial temperament that shattered the Senate, captivated the nation and ushered in an acrimonious new level of polarization now encroaching on the court that the 53-year-old judge may well swing rightward for decades to come. Even as Kavanaugh took his oath of office in a quiet private ceremony, not long after the narrowest Senate confirmation in nearly a century and a half, protesters chanted outside the court building across the street from the Capitol. The climactic 50-48 roll call capped a fight that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that he had sexually assaulted women three decades ago allegations he emphatically denied. Those accusations transformed the clash from a routine struggle over judicial ideology into an angry jumble of questions about victims rights, the presumption of innocence and personal attacks on nominees. His confirmation provides a defining accomplishment for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, which found a unifying force in the cause of putting a new conservative majority on the court. Before the sexual accusations grabbed the Senates and the nations attention, Democrats had argued that Kavanaughs rulings and writings as an appeals court judge had raised serious concerns about his views on abortion rights and a presidents right to bat away legal probes. Trump, flying to Kansas for a political rally, flashed a thumbs-up gesture when the tally was announced and praised Kavanaugh for being able to withstand this horrible, horrible attack by the Democrats. He later telephoned his congratulations to the new justice, then at the rally returned to his own attack on the Democrats as an angry left-wing mob. Like Trump, senators at the Capitol predicted voters would react strongly by defeating the other partys candidates in next months congressional elections. Its turned our base on fire, declared Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. But Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York forecast gains for his party instead: Change must come from where change in America always begins: the ballot box. The justices themselves made a quiet show of solidarity. Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts and the man hes replacing, retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, as fellow Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan looked on two conservatives and two liberals. Still, Kagan noted the night before that Kennedy has been a person who found the center and its not so clear well have that now. Associated PressBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man struck his girlfriend with his car the night after he bonded out of jail for a drug arrest, sheriffs reports show. Jorge Josue Arata, 29, of the 900 block of SW Seville Place, was first arrested on Wednesday after the woman made a call to law enforcement at the onset of an argument. Deputies reported the smell of marijuana smoke while approaching the residence at the 200 block of SE Osceola Place, a Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report stated. Savannah OQuinn told officers both had been smoking marijuana, while Arata told them they had argued all day, the report said. Deputies search of the house turned up a safe containing 170 grams of marijuana and close to $1,000, plus numerous items of paraphernalia, the report said. The presence of their twoyear-old child also resulted in child neglect charges for Arata. His threats to the deputies and his attempts to get out of restraints resulted in yet more charges, the report stated. The State Attorneys Office will decide whether OQuinn will face charges of child neglect as well. Arata was booked into jail just after 2 a.m. Thursday. He was in jail again just before 3 a.m. Friday on the hit and run charge. The Florida Highway Patrol said Arata hit OQuinn with his 2007 Honda Civic around 12:30 a.m. Friday, sending the 23-year-old over its windshield and onto the road. Her injuries were minor. Arata had been headed south on SW Talon Terrace before crossing SW Cannon Creek Drive where he ran into a ditch and hit a fence, FHP said. The report said he turned around and traveled back in the direction of OQuinn before striking her with his vehicle at a high rate of speed. OQuinn, after being hit, got into Aratas car as he left the scene, the report said. Arata drove to an S&S convenience store off County 247 and SR 47, where he was met by law enforcement.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: If you require special aid/services for the meeting City Clerk BILLY DEKLE TELLS HIS TALEBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comNobody knows where other paths might have led them in life, but Billy Dekle cant help but imagine one where he didnt fly a plane through stormy skies to meet a drug supplier in a remote South American valley, or find himself surrounded by crooked Jamaican cops. One where he didnt load bricks of marijuana onto a plane just a stones throw from a war zone. A path where he could have enjoyed life with his family in Lake City instead of spending three years as a fugitive only to get caught outside a Pensacola restaurant. See the birth of his grandson. Maybe even be there for his mother when she died. I would do a lot of things differently, he said. Dekle has had plenty of time to think about what his past and future might have looked like. Time was pretty much all he had in abundance for the 25 years he spent bouncing around the federal prison system on drug smuggling charges, where he was supposed to die if President Obama hadnt granted him clemency nearly three years ago. Life as an outlaw pilot wasnt all bad, 68-year-old Dekle said at his Lake City home. It was also full of thrills and gave a country boy the chance to travel the world. I was going places that I wouldve never went before, seeing things right out of National Geographic, he said. The excitement came with a cost, both to him and his family. One of my grandchildren is all grown up now, and I missed practically all of that, he said. I missed time with my children. The cowboy and his steedDekle grew up on a farm in Union County before his family moved to Lake City when he was about 12. It seemed like a big change at first. From what I was used to, I thought we had come to New York City, he said. But he got used to the small town. I was a regular kid, liked to play cowboys and indians, he said. Got interested in football. He started playing in Lake City Junior High School, and later became a defensive guard for the 1967 Columbia High School state championship team. Dekles father could already tell that his other son would become a lawyer. Sure enough, Bob Dekle would later go to law school and become the lead prosecutor in the case that sent serial killer Ted Bundy to the electric chair. Billy Dekle didnt feel like he had the same kind of direction or focus in life. I always said I was going to be a cowboy, he said. A different career plan piqued Dekles interest after he visited a cousin in Miami, who was studying at a flight school. Dekle, 16 at the time, learned he was old enough for a student pilot license. He was sold. Started taking flying lessons, he said. By 18, Dekle had a commercial pilot license and turned it into a business, taking gigs from corporate customers and flying gamblers to the Bahamas. The money would have been good, if he didnt have several planes to pay off on top of other expenses. There wasnt much left for me, he said. Outlaw charmDekle enrolled at Lake City Junior College, now Florida Gateway College, thinking it might help his budding career as a pilot. But not really, said Dekles wife, Kay, correcting her husbands account. He enrolled because his father agreed to buy him a car in exchange, she said. He was studying girls, she said. Kay and Billy Dekle first met at a convenience store in Lake The man once known as Gringo Billy finally free to speak his mind. Photos by CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterKay Dekle thumbs through paperwork filed as part of her husbands request for clemency, which President Obama granted in 2015. Billy Dekle holds a framed photo taken right after his release. BILLY continued on 6A
Hoping that a child will be raped is the vilest thought that can be formed in the civilized brain. There is no larger picture, no justification, no explanatory context. You cannot say, Well, yes, thats bad but what I really meant to say was that the kids of any conservative who supports that bastard Brett Kavanaugh deserve to be treated the same way she (says she) was. Hoping that a child will be raped is inhuman, but it is no longer out of bounds in social discourse. Last night, I came across a public posting on Facebook, which means the author wanted the world to have access to her thoughts. It was a jeremiad against Donald Trump, which is unexceptional these days, since he seems to turn certain people into human volcanoes that spew rivers of hateful prose. I avoid them when I see them scroll through my Facebook news feed. But this one caught my attention because I love children, spend a lot of time with them, and used to teach them. I also represent them in immigration court, like the little girl whose hand I held as she told the judge the other day that she was from Honduras, and that she was 5, and that pink was her favorite color. So when I saw these words, I froze: Time to burn everything to the (expletive) ground, when it comes to this vile, non-human garbage who by stealing and cheating ended up in the White House. Are we going to take as any kind of truth an investigation that isnt one? Are we going to take his ahole supporters who say lock her up to Dr. Ford? Im a good and nice person, a peace-loving person but let every one of them and their sons and daughters get raped, accosted by one of those boys will be boys. It went on. I reported the post to Facebook, and as of this writing, its still there. Thats Mark Zuckerbergs problem now, because Ive blocked the poster. But it was important for me to not simply shake my head as I used to do and move on, narrowing my group of friends to those with whom I could share photos of my sweet black Labs and funny anecdotes from my family along with political essays and ruminations. Ive resigned myself, ruefully, to the realization that this political and social climate is choosing for me, without my permission, the comfortable echo chamber where even though I hear kindred thoughts, I miss some of the kindred spirits who didnt share them. In other words, I am becoming increasingly isolated from liberal ideas because it is much harder these days to have a civil conversation. And yet I have very good, very decent liberal friends like Robin and Donna, Jennie and David, John and Victor who would never in a million years write about the rape of children in the same breath as they wish death on a president they cant stand. They make me realize that this is not a partisan disease, even though many of my conservative friends urge me to see the other side as the enemy. I have to admit that these past two weeks, the other side has been the Axis powers to my Allies, the guillotine-wielding Jacobins to my aristocracy. The Democrats, for whom I have vowed to never again cast a vote, have morphed into a caricature of their former selves in their duplicitous crusade to destroy a man and his reputation. I see nothing there that reminds me of the party I belonged to for 37 years. But that is political, and I understand that there are just as many Democrats and liberals who read my words defending Brett Kavanaugh last week and felt the same revulsion for me that I feel for the despicable assault on the judge. I would sincerely hope that even they, disgusted with our president and with the people he has chosen to represent him in the cabinet and now on the court, would recoil from the suggestion that my hypothetical children and the children of Kavanaugh supporters should be raped. You might say that this is anger speaking, and, of course, it is. But the appropriate place for that anger to burn is in the deep and quiet recesses of the mind, hidden from view. That we have now reached the point that raped children are considered appropriate conversational tender sterilizes the soul and induces a nausea that cant be eliminated by blocking the person who dares to write the words. And not even the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice will make it better.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION Why not Columbia?Strictly speaking, the new state plan to give folks in some Florida counties up to $10,000 to offset the cost of nitrogen-reducing septic systems is meant as an incentive not as much-needed relief to those who simply cant afford the complex devices. It is a distinction without a difference, in our view. Affected residents in Citrus, Hernando, Leon, Marion, Orange, Pasco, Seminole, Volusia and Wakulla counties will be eligible for the rebates because, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection, old fashioned septic systems are doing more to damage the environment in those locales not because residents there are needier than folks here, for instance. Thats the official explanation for DEPs failure to include Columbia, Suwannee and other area counties in the program. The Tallahassee bureaucrats note that, by statute, they are required to get the new septic systems in place faster in areas hardest hit by the effects of nitrogen runoff, which they say the new systems will help remedy. We understand the argument. What we do not understand is why folks around here who will also be required come Jan. 1 to install these costly systems in new homes, or when their current system fails, provided they reside on lots smaller than an acre within specially designated zones, most of which southern Columbia County is in cannot also be included in the states largesse. We arent big on government handouts. But when its the government thats forcing residents to spend an additional $10K or so on its latest project, the least they can do is count everybody in when offering a little relief or rather, incentive, as they insist on calling it. As currently configured, the DEP program is a grossly inequitable use of our tax dollars. State officials say theyre looking into it. Lets hope they see fit to set things right, and soon.Civil discourse, abandonedAn entirely new principle for cancer therapyTexas native Jim Allison was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine this week for developing an entirely new principle for cancer therapy that unleashes a patients immune system to attack tumors. Allison, a professor at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and a mean blues harmonica player, developed the groundbreaking cancer treatment known as immune checkpoint therapy along with fellow Nobelist Tasuku Honjo of Kyoto University. The Nobel has been awarded for cancer research in the past, but this is the first time an actual treatment for cancer has been rewarded. By stimulating the ability of our immune system to attack tumor cells, this years Nobel Prize laureates have established an entirely new principle for cancer therapy, said the Nobel committee. It was basic science that led to Allisons breakthrough the development of an antibody to block the checkpoint protein on T cells, freeing them to attack cancer. This led to the first immune checkpoint inhibitor drug, Ipilimumab, approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2011 for the treatment of latestage melanoma. This and other immunotherapy drugs have since been used to treat patients suffering from lymphoma, lung, renal and other forms of cancer. We reached out to the 70-year-old Nobel laureate this week to congratulate him, but also to discuss how basic science and the federal and state funding behind so much of it was crucial to his nearly 40 years of research, and scientific and medical progress in general. Basic science provides the fundamental foundation for major advances in medical treatment, Allison said. My early research in T-cell biology was funded by the National Cancer Institute. Basic research isnt often understood. Its complex and requires a thick skin to endure failure after failure in search of success. Getting to answers requires money and patience, but the payoff has the opportunity to save many, many lives. The National Institutes of Health, Allison said, remains the largest funding mechanism of medical research in the world. Biotech and pharmaceutical companies, explained Allison, fund the late-stage research that brings well-developed therapies to clinical trial and philanthropy also is quite helpful. But without that early funding of basic science from the government, many of the therapies that currently treat millions of cancer patients worldwide simply wouldnt exist, he said. Allison says investment by the federal government has been a roller-coaster ride over the past 20 years. Its been no different under the Trump administration, with the president first threatening to slash National Institutes of Health funding by more than 20 percent, only to have Congress approve a twoyear budget agreement that actually boosts spending by about $3 billion a nearly 9 percent increase. We agree that investing in basic science is one of the best uses of federal and state taxpayer money. When politicians talk of cutting funding to the National Institutes of Health and other funders of basic research, they are not draining the swamp but strangling the goose that lays the golden egg. When it comes to cancer treatment, and perhaps one day a cure, Allison speaks enthusiastically but bluntly: Weve had some wonderful results in the clinic with immune checkpoint blockade helping 20-30 percent of patients with some types of cancer. But that clinical success has outrun our scientific knowledge of how these drugs can be combined with other therapies to improve treatment for more patients and reduce unwanted side effects. The need for greater basic understanding has not passed, Allison says. I hope everyone including our government can see whats possible when time and money are invested in understanding the basics of how our bodies function. There is so much more to learn, and steady funding of basic science can help us get there faster.

The Lake City Reporter first got word of problem on Friday. Public works officials could not be reached that day, but Lake City Manager Joe Helfenberger said an inspection would have to wait until Monday, when crews would determine what it will take to fix the problem once and for all. In the meantime, he dispatched city crews to place orange cones and police tape around the open manhole. We just reinforced the barricading on it, said Helfenberger. It will be promptly fixed. Adams wasnt impressed. Thats their way of fixing it, he said. Im a taxpayer. I shouldnt have to look at four cones wrapped. Looks like a crime scene over there, in front of my house. 6A SU NDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER City, then kept r unning into each other on campus. For some reason, he always sparked my interest every time Id see him, she said. He was just that kind of wild. The same charm was also what made her hesitant to date him. I just didnt think hed ever settle down with anybody, she said. They got married anyway in 1971. He was 21 and she was 20. Kim and Amy Dekle were born in 1972 and 1974, respectively. Hard timesBilly Dekle studied at the college for a few semesters, working weekends at Lake City Municipal Airport, now Lake City Gateway Airport. Dekles father had a grass-planting company and asked his son to come work for him in the early 1970s. He told me I needed to help him, that I wasnt really getting nowhere at the airport, Dekle said. And he was right. The company would buy him a plane so he could at least still fly, Dekles father said. Dekle sold his stake in his planes and became a company man for the next four years. Around 1976, his fathers business went bankrupt. He had tried to go back to flight school, but it became too expensive. That was not working out, he said. Forced to settle for a job with the paving company now known as Anderson Columbia, Dekle struggled to pay his bills and debts. He figured $100,000 would be enough to dig him out of the hole. If he could just earn that much, he thought everything would be fine. And he knew just how to do it. I knew people were smuggling pot through the airport. I knew thered be good money. I knew I could fly as good as they could, he said. Flying highLuckily, Dekle knew someone who could get him started. He had the feds to thank for that. When he was working at the airport, some agents approached him and asked if he would set up a smuggler they were after. They indirectly gave me a contact, Dekle said. I turned them down and warned the guy. Convinced that smuggling marijuana was his only shot at making the $100,000 he needed, Dekle went back to the man and asked to be cut in. The first run in 1977 took three attempts. People talk about it being easy money, he said. There was nothing easy about that. The journey would take them from Columbia County to the nation of Colombia. Their pickup destination was marked on a map, a valley in the middle of nowhere. They were using a four-engine plane. That I didnt have a license to fly, by the way, he said. Never having operated an aircraft of that size, Dekle started having doubts. His partner gave some words of advice that helped him muster his courage. Fly from this seat forward, just like youve flown any plane before, the other man said. Off they went. While Dekle was still trying to figure out the plane radios, his partner started tapping at an instrument. This cant be right, wed have already blown the engine by now, the partner said. Just as the word now came out of his mouth, Dekle heard the unmistakable sound of an engine blowing out. Theres no better feeling than thinking your life is about to end, and you pull through it, Dekle said. I got to experience that feeling many times on that trip. Dekle had a decision to make: turn the plane around and go back to Lake City to try again with a different plane, or push forward and pick up a smaller shipment that the three working engines could still carry. They turned around. Within a day or two, they were ready for another try, this time with a smaller plane. Dekle would be flying a solo mission to pick up 20,000 pounds of pot. There was a fuel-related issue, and he didnt realize until the plane was halfway to Colombia that he couldnt make it the whole way. He landed in the Bahamas and bought enough gas to get back to Lake City.Gringo BillyStorms and mechanical problems persisted throughout the third try, a run that Dekle remembers as the 27 hours from hell. I thought I was dead I dont know how many times, he said. But the plane made it to the valley, where Dekle was instructed to look for a smoke signal. He touched down, got out and saw a Colombian man approaching. The Colombian, who didnt speak English, beat his chest and announced his name. Dekle, who didnt speak Spanish, did the same. Billy, Dekle said. Gringo Billy! the Colombian man said, greeting the guest. Dekle pulled out a gun a present for the Colombian, who had asked for a cowboy pistol. The Colombian man gleefully pulled the firearm off the cowboy-style gun belt and walked away with Dekle while a crew loaded the plane with pot. He was happy with his pistol, Dekle said. The Colombian host took aim at some cow manure in the distance and fired. This was a hell of an experience, Dekle thought to himself. After dark, the Colombians chased cows off the makeshift runway. By morning, Dekle had arrived at the drop-off point: a small farm just south of Live Oak. Dekle got $9,000 for the job. Im never going to live through enough of these to make $100,000, he thought to himself. But Im going to keep trying. Dekle made it through 10 runs that year. He estimates his smuggling career involved more than 100 runs before it ended in 1990. I got drawn more to the excitement than the money, he said. Dekle recalled the adrenaline rush of loading pot onto his plane in broad daylight at a Nicaraguan airport as mortars and cannons sounded off nearby during the civil war between Sandinistas and government forces. Theres no guessing how much money he made smuggling, Dekle said. Sometimes it went just as fast as he could spend it, such as the time he had to replace a plane he was forced to abandon on a Mexican beach with the goods still inside. When something goes wrong, you lose a lot of money, he said. Paying off cops wasnt cheap, either.The Jamaica bustDekle put up the $15,000 needed to bribe Jamaican police officers before trying to make a pickup in 1979. The guy Dekle trusted to get the money to the right people ended up pocketing all but $600, which the partner gave to a single officer to ignore any calls about their activity. But the officer he gave the money to wasnt the one who answered the phone when somebody reported the smugglers. He was supposed to pay them all, Dekle said. Dekle arrived at the landing strip to find his contacts on the wrong side of the runway, and they were late. He wasnt even supposed to have to shut off his engine just land, let them load it up and take off. One of the Americans told me, Its going to be a while, he said. Nothing went according to plan that day. It was about to get worse. From the cockpit, Dekle saw a flash of fire from a shotgun. The cops had him surrounded. Shoot the SOB if he doesnt get out of the plane, one of the officers said. Except he didnt use the abbreviation, Dekle added. Dekle looked behind him, but there was no way out of the plane. Theres nothing but pot between me and the door, he said. Im packed in. My poor children are going to grow up knowing their dad got his brains blown out in Jamaica over a plane load of pot, he thought to himself. Another American on the runway was able to talk the cops down and help diffuse the situation. They told them to let me out, Dekle said. They had us on the ground, spread eagle with a shotgun between our shoulder blades. They wanted to know what we were doing there without paying them. Dekle was given 30 days in a Jamaican jail, plus an $8,400 fine. The cell had no bed, no blanket, nothing except a garbage can that doubled as a toilet. Dekle hoped nobody he knew back home would find out about the Jamaica bust. I was hoping I could somehow get out of it, Dekle said. Hoping for some miracle to happen. The Lake City Reporter covered the arrests. Jamaican authorities released Dekle on Christmas Day in 1979. Fearing the kind of scrutiny hed face passing through U.S. customs, he begged the islands government to send him to the Bahamas. They released him to Miami instead. I was scared, but I breezed right on through, Dekle said. I was lucky. Been lucky a lot. Luck isnt a substitute for good judgement, he said. I made some pretty critical mistakes that cost me and my family dearly, Dekle said.

SU NDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2018 LOCAL & STATE L AA KE CIT YY REPOR TER 7A Cops: Man shoots woman, kills selfBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comReports of gunshots and screams at a busy Lake City intersection late Friday night turned into a multi-county search for a man who attempted to kill a woman, and later shot himself in a Cross City motel room, police said. A Lake City woman who was nearby said she heard four shots ring out and called law enforcement, around 11 p.m. when Kenneth Bingham, 51, shot the 30-year-old woman who police said he was arguing with. I remember everything clearly, because between the gunshots and her screaming, Ive never heard anything like her screams before, said Newton. Newton said she standing outside her apartment at a nearby townhouse complex when she heard the first sound of gunfire. She walked a few steps in the direction and heard two more shots. I walked out a bit more and three more shots and then heard a woman yelling and screaming for help, Please help me Ive been shot, Newton said. She said from her apartment she could see traffic come to a stop as first responders arrived. Bingham, 51, fled local law enforcement taking to the interstate to cut through Alachua and Dixie counties in a gray Dodge Challenger, and holed up in the El Dorado Hotel in Cross City, a Lake City Police Department press release said. Lake City Police Public Information Officer Mike Lee said a Dixie County Sheriffs Deputy spotted Binghams car at the motel, called for backup and the area was soon cordoned off after guests were evacuated. Inside the room, Bingham noticed law enforcement setting up a perimeter and talked with LCPD, along with negotiators from both Columbia and Dixie counties, by phone, LCPD said. A shot was fired, heard by negotiators over the receiver and, the CCSO SWAT team entered the room and found Bigham with a self inflicted gunshot, the press release said. LCPD said first aid was unsuccessful and Binghams body was sent for autopsy by medical examiners. The dispute between Bingham and the victim was described by police as a personal quarrel that played out along U.S. Highway 90, from the time the woman left the vehicle near Lake City Airport to the intersection of U.S. 90 and State Route 247 where Bingham shot her in the arm. Police said she was transported to a Lake City hospital and is in stable condition. Lee said both were permanently residing Lake City. Newton said the incident had a lasting impact on her. I dont think Ill go anywhere alone at night for a while, Newton said. I used to walk back and forth to work at night. Ill never do that again Im sure. She is recovering; earwitness recounts evenings events. The homefrontIt wasnt hard to put two and two together, Kay Dekle said. Her husband had told her about his plan when he first had the idea to smuggle marijuana, but she immediately shot it down. I threatened to divorce him, she said. When he started doing it anyway, he lied and said he was making money from selling planes. The truth was obvious, Kay Dekle said. He was gone a lot, all the time, she said. He was partaking in a lot of his supplies, and I was not a fan of that. Something just felt different. He was not a very good husband, she said. His personality changed a lot. They divorced before the 1979 Jamaica bust. Kay Dekle had moved to Tampa and married another man, but ended up leaving him to be with Billy again. They eventually remarried. I knew I always loved him, Kay said. Crashing downIn 1981, American law enforcement officers caught up with Dekle, the first time he was arrested on U.S. soil since becoming a drug smuggler. Someone connected with the operation had flipped after getting busted, Dekle said. He told on all of us, then got in witness protection, he said. First time I ever heard of it. Dekle and his wife were back together, but not yet remarried. Prosecutors charged Dekle with racketeering and he was sentenced to federal prison. Adapting to life as an inmate wasnt particularly hard, but there is a culture shock, Dekle said. You are not trusted, he said. By guards or inmates. Dekle served nine months on a two-year sentence before going on work release, but there were other charges already waiting for him. Right after getting out of a federal prison in Michigan, Dekle said he was charged with conspiracy to possess marijuana with intent to distribute, which violated the conditions of his previous release and meant he had to serve that full term, too. Dekle also served time at federal correctional institution in Tallahassee, a state prison in Palatka, and Volusia County. Im getting out of one and straight to another, he said. He ended up doing a combined total of about 27 months, 20 of which were spent at federal facilities. More and more people he was working with kept getting arrested over the years. I felt like I was next, Dekle said. Dekle became a fugitive around 1987. Splitting his time between lying low in Belize and roaming Florida, Dekle made it three years. Then I got the big one, he said. Another person connected with Dekles operation got caught, this time trying to sell weapons to anti-British terrorists in Northern Ireland. Because he flipped and gave information leading law enforcement to Dekle, the other man ended up serving eight years of a 10-year sentence. He got less time than I did, and hes dealing with grenades and machine guns, Dekle said. Authorities knew the aliases Dekle used, what kind of car he was driving, and that he spent a lot of time near a particular motel in Pensacola. I was still working the whole time I was a fugitive, he said. In 1990, after making his last run, Dekle went to a restaurant near the motel. I walk out and Im surrounded, he said. He had figured this moment would eventually come sooner or later. But what I didnt expect was the life sentence, Dekle said. New lifeThe court convicted Dekle of conspiracy to possess, import by plane and distribute more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana. Sentencing laws had changed since the last time he faced charges for the same crimes, requiring mandatory minimum sentences for certain kinds of offenses. Prosecutors warned him there would be a harsher punishment if he didnt give up names, but Dekle said he feared that would put his family in danger. He was given two life sentences. Im thinking, how can they do this? he said. They cant be serious. Even the judge thought the penalty was extreme and signed a letter saying so, Dekle said. But the law was the law. The judge said, my hands are tied, Dekle said. The next 25 years passed him by as he served time at multiple federal facilities, missing out on seeing his family members go through major life milestones weddings, births and deaths. Theres some things you just dont get back, he said. When Dekle was locked up in Edgefield, South Carolina, his mother made a point to visit him. She was in a wheelchair by her last visit in 1999. Within days, Dekle was eating in the chow hall when he was called into a lieutenants office. Usually, thats not a good thing, he said. The lieutenant told Dekle hed lost a family member, then broke the news that it was his mother. It was a heart attack. Finding out your mother is dead is hard enough without having to learn about it from a prison guard instead of a loving relative, Dekle said. I knew that she was having problems, he said. I wish I could have been there. In 2003, Dekle was back in Florida at a facility in Sumter County when he learned his father was expected to die soon. He was just wearing out, he said. To avoid a repeat of what happened with his mother, Dekle called the family everyday to check in so he could hear it from them when it happened. Prison gave Dekle an appreciation for the freedoms he never thought about before. Going to bed when he wanted, eating white acre peas, coming and going when he felt like it. Things you dont think about so much, he said. You dont realize that can all be lost for such a long time, he said. HomecomingDekle went to bed on a November night in 2015 with the knowledge that hed die in prison. When he went to bed the next night, he had hope. He was at the high-security United States Penitentiary in Pollock, Louisiana. His first request for clemency from President Obama had been rejected in 2013, and it had been a long time since he filed the second one. But when he was asked to report to the prisons release and discharge office, he couldnt help but get his hopes up. I had a feeling it could be good news, he said. After struggling to find guards who cared enough to open the doors he needed to go through, he walked into the office and was told to speak to an attorney on the phone. Obama included him on the list of names approved for clemency, the attorney said. Â One hundred twenty days to go. I didnt jump up and down and dance or noth ing like that, Dekle said. I just sat down and said, wow. Kay Dekle knew what was going on when she heard her daughter answer the phone call theyd been expecting and scream with joy. A lot of hugging and crying and very emotional, Kay said. The family picked Billy up 30 days later to drive him to a halfway house in Jacksonville, where he would spend the next 90 days. I just couldnt imagine him walking out the doors for the first time and having to go to a bus stop, Kay Dekle said. Dekle felt overwhelmed just seeing the touch screens inside the van and realizing how much technology had changed. It was Star Trek, he said. While at the halfway house, Dekle got a job at Anderson Columbia. His wife bought him a truck to commute to Lake City, and he put the key in the ignition around 5 a.m. the first day of work. A country music station blasted on the radio, but Dekle realized he was alone for the first time in 25 years and turned it off. I wanted to see what nothing sounds like, he said. It was great. Nothing is underrated. FREEDOMContinued From 6A CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterKay and Billy DD ekle stand outside their Lake C ity home. The two got divorced after Kay found out about her husbands pot smuggling activities, but got remarried before Billy was sentenced to life in federal prison. Judge chastises state regulators over marijuana licensesTALLAHASSEE In a harshly worded order scolding state officials for treating the Constitution like a recommendation, a Tallahassee judge Friday gave the Department of Health two weeks to begin registering new medical-marijuana operators or risk being found in contempt. Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson, siding with Tampa-based Florigrown LLC, rebuked Gov. Rick Scott, the Scott administration and the Republicandominated Legislature for failing to properly carry out a 2016 constitutional amendment that broadly legalized medical marijuana. Florigrown, owned in part by Tampa strip-club operator Joe Redner, filed the legal challenge after the Department of Health denied its application for a medical marijuana license. Dodsons Friday order followed an August decision in which the judge found that a 2017 law, aimed at implementing the amendment, is unconstitutional because, among other things, it caps the number of highly sought-after medical marijuana licenses health officials can issue. Although he found the law unconstitutional two months ago, Dodson delayed a ruling on Florigrowns motion for a temporary injunction to give health officials time to comply with his original findings. Dodson ruled verbally from the bench Wednesday in favor of Florigrown, but Fridays written order --which the judge alone penned --severely reprimanded state health officials for failing to follow his instructions. When he issued the Aug. 2 order, Dodson was hopeful that the health department would take action to cure the serious constitutional problems he identified in the state law, the judge wrote in Fridays 6-page order. Instead, a lawyer for the state agency this week essentially conceded that for the purpose of this case there have been no significant changes in the departments regulations or its handling of Florigrowns application, according to Dodson. State health officials are in an unfamiliar situation because the Legislature has the authority to implement most constitutional amendments. But the medical marijuana amendment specifically gave the responsibility to the Department of Health to ensure the availability and safe use of medical marijuana by qualifying patients, Dodson noted.

Now Jennifer Anchors looks to the future for the organization and those it serves across four neighboring counties. Anchors started the job Oct. 1, after an extensive search following the announcement by the previous leader of nearly two decades that she would retire. Rita (Dopp) has built a legacy here in this community and, along with her, volunteers and board members have created something very special within the United Way of Suwanee Valley, Anchors said. My hope is to contiue to move that forward as well as focus on the vision that theyve set for the future of the United Way and work on fulfilling that as well. Before arriving to her office in the new United Way building at 871 SW State Road 47, Anchors spent 15 years at Childrens Home Society of Florida, Mid Florida Division. The society had been an active partner of UW since the late 60s, affording Anchors a unique perspective. Ive been with not-forprofit organizations for my entire career, and so I understand how they work and the challenges that are set forth and really helping those in our community who need assistance, Anchors said. Through her work with the childrens home she covered the same counties, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee Counties, providing an extensive knowledge of the area she has worked and lived in for 15 years. She said her first week had been a whirlwind of information. But I love it, Anchors said. All the staff are wonderful, board members have been great. Anchors said in her first week shed been out meeting heads of partner agencies, and organizations making introductions. Its been fantastic, Anchors said. Originally from southwest Pennsylvania, she said she first moved to South Florida to escape the snow. Now she said when shes not at work her daughters keep her busy. She had a message for those United Way helps in the area. The United Way will as always continue to fight for the health, education and financial stability of those in our community, and work with organizations and utilize our volunteer base to find innovative ways to help others and to continue to provide those it serves, Anchors said.

One 1,000-yard running back. And two 1,000-yard receivers, with another right behind. All the way to the state semifinals. Thats how talented the 2015 offense was at Columbia. The 2018 group? Well, these Tigers might be even better. Columbias offense is on pace to top the 2015 group just barely, but with one caveat making it back to the state semifinals. The Tigers (5-1) are currently racking up 448.33 yards per game, just ahead of the 2015 teams 448.07 average over 14 games. And none of it surprises head coach Brian Allen. He expected this even before the season started. Its crazy that its only been a two-year span in between having two highly explosive offenses, Allen said back in August. I think the measuring stick Im putting on them is the one that 2015 had. The two offenses mirror each in so many ways at each position. Take a look at the numbers: Quarterback Jordan Smith is throwing for 278 yards per game, just ahead of Davin Schucks 271 in 2015, and thats with Smith missing the entire second half of Columbias game against Robert E. Lee due to concussion-like symptoms. Schuck threw 39 touchdowns that season, with Smith on pace for 37 should he plays as many games Running back Kylen Callum is rushing for 90 yards a night compared to Kamario Bells 88. While Bell wasnt a threat in the passing game, Callum is also averaging 14.5 yards receiving. Bell had 16 touchdowns while Callum already has nine and counting. Receivers Dallon Washington (1,246 yards, 14 touchdowns) and Latrell Williams (1,035 yards, 10 touchdowns) both topped 1,000 yards in 2015, with Michael Jackson not far behind with 905. Marquez Bell (578) and TJ Jones (541) would both surpass Washingtons total yardage if they keep up Is the 2018 offense as good as the 2015 offense? Well see.

FGCs Kaitlyn Cline CHS FOOTBALLWilliams back like he never leftBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comTheres a familiar face back roaming the field. Take a look at Columbias defense, its hard to miss him not because of his size, standing at just six-feet tall, but because of his natural knack for finding the football. Ahmad Williams, now back at Columbia after transferring from Winter Park last year, has made his presence felt halfway through his senior season. The Tigers were disappointed to see their brother go a friend and teammate theyve known since childhood but it made the news that much sweeter when they heard he was coming back. Williams, who spent his first two seasons at Columbia, has bolstered the secondary unit since his return. In six games, hes already tallied 31 tackles, good for second most on the team not to mention a handful of timely big plays, including a 75-yard fumble recovery touchdown against district rival Robert E. Lee three weeks ago. Its safe to say his transition back to Columbia has gone smoothly. It wasnt that hard because Ive been here before, he said after practice this week. So I already knew how the program goes. One of my goals this year is to start to make some plays [defending] the run game a little more. I can always help more on the pass but my goal is to get more tackles and come down on the run game more. The strong safety starred for the Winter Park Wildcats last season and helped the team go undefeated during the regular season before falling in the third round of the state playoffs. Columbia, though, struggled without Williams in 2017. The Tigers were forced to rely on inexperienced players who were thrown in the spotlight fast. Last seasons secondary unit was put through the gauntlet, a part of a steep learning curve, but the groups improvement a year later has been evident. And with Williams back, theres some extra muscle in the defensive backfield. While there have still been some miscues in the secondary, resulting in up-and-down performances, Williams continues to be reliable, not only bringing consistency but ERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbia safety Ahmad Williams tries to avoid being tagged during practice on Wednesday.

Brad Stewarts 25-yard interception return for a touchdown the first pick Joe Burrow has thrown this season essentially sealed the victory for the Gators (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference). Florida scored all its points after 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow became the sixth player to be inducted into the schools ring of honor. With Tebow watching much of the game from the sideline, Florida looked a little like a championship contender. Perine grinded out tough yards, Floridas defense was as good as its been all season and the difference was another perfect play call by coach Dan Mullen. A week after beating Mississippi State with a double pass, Feleipe Franks handed off to seldom-used tight end Lucas Krull, slipped around the right end mostly unnoticed and caught a 15-yard pass from Krull that set up Perines second score.Defense helps No. 22 Florida edge No. 5 LSUGATORS continued on 6BBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI GARDENS NKosi Perry threw four touchdown passes, and No. 17 Miami pulled off its biggest comeback ever against Florida State by rallying from 20 points down to top the Seminoles 28-27 on Saturday night.

He passed three drivers for most rookie wins: Greg Biffle won five races in 2001, as did Kyle Busch in 2004 and Carl Edwards in 2005. Bell built his record with wins at Kentucky, New Hampshire, Iowa and twice at Richmond and expected to add a few more as he chases a championship. Were in really good shape, Bell said. The 2017 Truck Series champion, Bell won the first stage Saturday and was never in any serious trouble driving the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, leading 110 of 200 laps. Its been a career year for me, Bell said. All credit to Joe Gibbs Racing. We have really fast race cars every time I go to the racetrack. He was the only driver headed into the race who secured a spot in the semifinal round. South Florida improves to 5-0 after 58-42 victory at UMass AMHERST, Mass. (AP) Jordan Cronkrite ran for 302 yards and three touchdowns and South Florida improved to 5-0 for the second straight season by beating UMass 58-42 Saturday afternoon. The game was originally scheduled to be played last year in Tampa but was moved due to Hurricane Irma. The Bulls Tyre McCants pulled in a 72-yard touchdown pass from Blake Barnett in the first minute and Brennon Dingle pulled in a 31-yard pass from the Minutemens Andrew Ford to tie the game at 7-7 two minutes later. Johnny Ford ran 19 yards for at a score with 1:31 left in the half to put South Florida up 20-14, and Cronkrite took over in the third quarter with touchdown runs of 77, 30 and 76 yards to make it 48-28 going into the fourth. Barnett finished 17 for 24 for 209 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. Ford was 19 of 27 for 199 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for UMass (2-5).

Matthews tiptoed down the left sideline early in the third quarter for a 74-yard punt return touchdown, putting Florida State up 27-7. And the Hurricanes got booed off the field on their ensuing possession, the volume of those jeers rising when a draw play got called on third-and-16 as a prelude to a punt. The Hurricanes looked finished. And then, in a flash, they werent. Florida State came in here and took control of this game, Miami coach Mark Richt said. We found a way to fight back ... somehow, we gutted it out. Miami striker Derrick Smith got ejected for targeting, and one play later, the tide somehow turned the Hurricanes way. Gerald Willis III picked up a fumble to set up a 20-yard drive where Perry connected with Darrell Langham on a fourth-down throw for a touchdown. Francois was intercepted two plays later, and the Hurricanes cashed in on their next snap when Perry and Jeff Thomas hooked up for a 17-yard score. Just like that, 27-7 became 27-21. And when Ricky Aguayo missed 43-yard field goal with 12:42 left, the Hurricanes were still within one score. Thats the drive when Perry went to Thomas on third down, Jordan one play later, and after a more than four-hour game and 14 years Miami could finally celebrate a home win over the Seminoles again. It was the third straight FSU at Miami game where someone wasted a double-digit halftime lead. Florida State rallied from 10 down at the break in 2016. The Seminoles did it again from 13 down at the half in 2014. This time, they were up by 13 20-7, and then tacked another touchdown on for good measure. And somehow, Miami found a way out of the hole. We did enough to win, Richt said. Just enough. POLL IMPLICATIONS The Hurricanes 23-week streak the ninth-longest active run in the country wont be ending on Sunday. Florida State will remain unranked, and faces a very tough climb back toward the poll at any point this season. FIRST-TIMERS Perry was the 43rd quarterback to start a game in this rivalry in the last 40 years. Those first-timers are now 22-21, and for the first time there have been four consecutive QBs to win their FSU-Miami debuts. Perry joins Miamis Malik Rosier in 2017, Francois in 2016 and FSUs Everett Golson in 2015 on that list. NOLESContinued From 1B B2
SU NDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSTop 10 deer cartridges in AmericaBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterFloridas general gun season for deer in Zone C (our area) opens November 3. Since hunting season is just around the corner, now is a good time to get the deer rifle out of the gun safe and head to the range. Its always interesting to see what calibers are the favorite for hunters. Just like chili, every family has their favorite recipe and to them, that recipe is the best. Deer rifles are the same. Some of us actually researched calibers and made a decision based on ballistic tables. But I think most of us just picked the same caliber used by our fathers, uncles, or good friends. Because shooting is a very popular sport right now, determination of favorite hunting cartridges cannot solely be based on ammo sales. Its impossible to know if a box of ammo was purchased for an upcoming deer hunt or if it was used for punching holes in a target. But most manufacturers are reporting that the #1 centerfire rifle ammo sold today is the .223 Remington. Its relatively cheap to shoot and owners of AR style rifles frequently shoot a lot. So lots of it are sold. The .223 Remington is an extremely popular cartridge at the range but is frowned upon as a deer cartridge, mostly because good expanding hollow point ammo is scarce. For this reason, it was excluded along with the 7.62x 39 Soviet (#8 on the list for ammo sales.) After that, the next seven on the list included very popular hunting calibers, like the .308 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, .30-30 Winchester, etc. To round out the list, a review was conducted of favorite caliber lists for deer hunting published by magazines such as Outdoor Life, Sports Afield, and Field and Stream. Here is the list: The #1 spot belongs to the 308 Winchester. This cartridge was developed in 1954 as a NATO round (there is a story behind that!). Nearly manufacturers of bolt action rifles make a rifle chambered for this round. It is a great long range cartridge and is perfect for deer hunting. This round is now available in several AR style rifles. #2 on the list is the .30-06 Springfield. Created in 1906 by the Springfield Armory, this round replaced the .30-03 and the 30-40 Kraig. The Army wanted a full power cartridge that carried a large punch out to 400 yards. They got it in this round, and more. The venerable .30-30 Winchester is #3. This caliber is still popular but not like it was 40 years ago, when it seemed that everyone owned a Winchester or Marlin .30-30. Winchester invented this round way back as a high tech advancement to accept smokeless powder in its Model 1894 lever action. Its rumored the .30-30 has killed more deer than any other cartridge and sale of its ammo even today rank in the top five. #4 belongs to the .270 Winchester. Saved from obscurity in the 1960s by the late Jack OConner who wrote about his hunts with a .270 in Alaska to take Moose, Bear, Sheep and Mountain Goats. This cartridge is a long-range powerhouse but was considered a bit light for really big animals. The .270 Winchester was invented in the 1920s by necking down the .30-03. The .243 Winchester is 5th on the list. This cartridge was invented in 1955 as a varmint load for long range shots at Prairie Dogs and Groundhogs. Even though its known for low recoil and low noise level, this round is a very flat shooting, high velocity cartridge. It handles deer quite well. Sixth on the list is the 7mm Remington Magnum. Designed as a long range powerhouse for Elk hunting in the west, this cartridge can handle most any North American game animal. When hunting with a 7mm Remington Magnum, you will have enough gun. The 300 Winchester Magnum occupies the 8th spot. This round was invented in 1963 to be a magnum powerhouse that would fit in a standard length action rifle. It was developed by necking down the .375 H&H. Recently, the Army has shown great interest in using the .300 Win. Mag for sniper use out to 1500 meters. Taking the 9th position is the 7mm-08 Remington. Invented in the late 1950s, this round was based on the .308 Winchester. This chambering develops higher velocities than the .308 Winchester and as such is a better long range performer. Ballistically speaking, it is very similar to the Mauser 7x57. The 10th spot is up for grabs. The difference statistically in ammo sales for the .257 Roberts, .35 Remington, and the .45-70 Government, and many more are slight. Because they are just new lets not forget about the 6.5 Creedmore, 300 Blackout, and the .260 Remington. All of these will get the job done. Also in the future, loadings for the .223 Remington (5.56mm) will also be improved and we will see more ARs configured for hunting in the deer woods. Be safe and good hunting.COURTESY PHOTOSThe whitetail got its name from the white hair on the underside of its tail. These are a few of the heavy-hitters that get it done in deer hunting. From left to right, .30-06 Springfield, .30-30 Winchester, .338 Winchester Magnum, .270 Winchester, and the .300 Winchester Magnum. Want to extend your hunting season? Buy a muzzleloaderFrom staff reportsThere are many reasons to own a muzzleloader and hunt the muzzleloading gun season, said Clint Peters, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wildlife biologist. But the biggest reason for me is it extends your hunting season and allows access to some smaller wildlife management areas with good deer populations, many of which have muzzleloader seasons that coincide with the rut. Using a muzzleloader is not as complicated as some might think. They operate on the same basic principles as modern firearms, Peters said. Taking a Florida hunter safety course is a good way to learn how to safely use muzzleloading guns. Theres also instructional information available on hunter safety and other hunting-related websites. Its especially important to understand the effective range of a muzzleloading gun, Peters said. There are two classes of muzzleloaders historic and modern. Historic types, like what our forefathers used, are mostly effective out to about 65 yards. Modern inline muzzleloaders, though loaded through the muzzle of the barrel, perform more like modern rifles. They can be fitted with scopes and function reliably out to 150 yards or more. If youre interested in using a muzzleloader, Peters recommends finding a muzzleloading gun enthusiast to help you get started. Invite them to a shooting range and ask them to walk you through the whole process of loading, shooting and clearing one, Peters said.

4B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2018 Sports Department 754-0420 their pace and Columbia makes a deep playoff run. Receiver Bobby Fulton is tied with Bell for seven touchdowns on pace to tie Washington while Jones has three. Jaden Williams also has another score with 256 yards and, combined with Fultons total of 329, would finish about 1,000 yards behind the combined total of Nate Maxwells and Jacksons 1,487. The teams even have the same record through six games. That team was good but coach Allen has said were way better than they were back then and thats big shoes to fill because those were some really good guys, Smith said at practice this week. But looking at this year and the guys we have this year, were real special and everybody keeps preaching it to us. Coach Allen doesnt want to tell us that but he knows in his head were really good. Were probably the best team to ever come through here but weve just got to live up to it. There arent many players that are still around from that 2015 group. Jones and Fulton were both freshman at Columbia then, playing for J.V. while also soaking in as much as they could from that quartet of receivers. In fact, the only offensive starter still around from that team is tackle Zachary Bedanbaugh. But this current group still looks up to that team simply because it set the bar so high for future teams at Columbia. Â I watched those boys in practice work har d and grind so a goal for me is to put my name with their names with yards and stats and catches, Jones said. That would be a blessing. Of course, topping that team in yards and touchdowns isnt all this 2018 group wants to accomplish. The Tigers want to do what that incarnation couldnt advance to the state championship game and win it all. Theres so many different things that you want to obtain now that that group did with every group that comes through here, Allen said. The bar has been set so the next best thing is to play for the title and hopefully have an opportunity to win it. You dont want to go to just go. Thats not the goal to just go but to get there and win it. Its a very plausible outcome for the Tigers, who even reached No. 1 in Class 7A in the AP state poll two weeks ago before falling back to second with the loss to Trinity Christian. The biggest reason why this team may ultimately prove to be better than the 2015 team isnt because of the players but because of Allen. Allen says hes learned a lot as a coach since the 2015 state semifinal loss to Viera, which jumped on Columbia and pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 42-23 win. There are a lot of similarities with and this year, Allen said. The biggest thing I have to make sure as far as players wise is concerned is we have the players offensively to do whatever we need to do to be in the championship. Weve just got to make sure that I have them prepared for whatever they may face as we move forward and even in the postseason. We made mistakes in 15 in that fourth round of the playoffs because there was a tendency I didnt self-scout us to know that were there that allowed Viera to make the adjustments to what they saw. I have to make sure I do a great job of self-scouting us so we dont give away our tendencies and allow my kids to just play and execute our game plan.JUSTIN STRICKLIN/Special to the ReporterColumbia receiver TJ Jones prepares to stiff arm a Trinity Christian defender during the classic showdown in Jacksonville last week. FILEFormer Columbia receiver Mike WIlliams, whos now playing at Nebraska, makes a move by the sideline during the 2015 season. OFFENSEContinued From 1Bmore importantly, leadership and accountability to Columbias star-studded defense. Just do your job, he said of his teammates. Dont worry about what everybody else is doing. Do your assignment and good things will come Its good to just come [back] and try to lead. They can just catch on to what were doing. The [younger] players are cool guys. Theyre smart, so they can catch on. We just got to start focusing on doing it. All we got to do is our job, and not someone elses. Williams has received help relaying this message from other seniors in free safety Brandon Scott, who just returned from an ankle injury, and strong safety Sirr Talbott, who is back for his final season after winning his FHSAA age appeal. Hes made a big impact, Talbott said of Williams. Hes a big impact for us. And now we have Brandon back, so well see where everybodys going to be and stuff. It wasnt easy for Williams, leaving his friends and family in Lake City when his mother took a new job near Winter Park last year. The senior playmaker found a way to get back to Columbia for his last season. For Williams, it goes beyond football he wanted to finish out with his class, the guys he started with, the ones who played alongside him in city league, Pop Warner, all the way up through middle school. I knew what kind of team we would have, he said. Its the chemistry we have. With an abundance of team talent, enough to make a state title run, Williams return couldnt have come at a better time, and the Tigers are thrilled to have him back. It goes back to even last year, when he wasnt here, coach Brian Allen said. He had an impressive showing at Winter Park a year ago, with the interceptions that he had and good plays that he made over there. So he comes back here with a high level of confidence, already knowing the sys tem. Him being able to play at a high level has been big for us in that secondary. TIGERSContinued From 1BJUSTIN STRICKLIN/Special to the ReporterColumbias Ahmad Williams breaks up a pass intended for Trintys Isaiah Washington last Saturday night. led the way with a game-high 12 kills. Kaitlann Knudson added 26 digs as the Lady Timberwolves captured their third straight win of the season. Were starting to click more now, middle blocker Madison Morrison said. Were playing our game and not their game. [Johnson] is a slower team than us and we play at a higher speed. Weve just been playing our speed and not theirs. The Lady Timberwolves (8-12) shot out to a 10-3 advantage over the Lady Suns (5-14) in the opening set, thanks to a bevy of unearned points given up by Johnson University. Nataleigh Nieuwenhuis, who finished with four kills, led the way in the first set win. FGC had another hot start in the second set. Madison Brugh made her first appearance since her shoulder injury a couple weeks ago. Brughs kill in the second set pushed the Lady Timberwolves to a 15-9 lead. FGC didnt look back after that either using a strong stands defensively to cruise to a 25-14 win. Thats been the story all year for us is that our defense looks great, coach Richie Tang said. I think our offense still needs to get better. We throw too many balls away, like tennis, those are unforced errorsWe have to be better to win conference games and help our cause. Because when we get to the conference tournament, we dont want an unfair advantage [seeding-wise]. FGC gears up for another conference matchup on Wednesday night. The Lady Timberwolves look for their fourth straight win when they travel to Panama City to take on Gulf Coast State College. Riding their longest win streak in two years, FGC plans to keep the momentum alive as the conference tournaments nears closer. Weve had some great matches, Tang said. We just havent been able to close, and thats one of the frustrations. I thought we played well last weekend when we went to Pasco-Hernando. We had a really good opportunity to beat South Florida, but didnt take take of business. So, yeah were playing good volleyball. If you looked at us a month ago, it was rough. We had to figure out what our strengths. Were still tweaking things a bit, but Im happy with where we are.

It immediately followed LSUs go-ahead drive that featured two long runs from Nick Brossettte. Brossette ran for 79 yards on the drive, including a 2-yard plunge that put the Tigers (5-1, 2-1) up 19-14 with 8:48 to play. Florida answered, but didnt put LSU away until Stewarts interception and then another one on fourth down on the ensuing possession. TEBOW TIME Tebows induction speech went about like everyone expected. He thanked Jesus, his parents, his former teammates and then Gator nation. I was born a Gator. I played as a Gator. I will die as a Gator, Tebow said passionately at the end of the first quarter, drawing a rousing ovation. Tebow was back on the field at halftime, recognized as part of the 2008 national championship team. As players gathered for a group photo, they begged Tebow to get front and center. He politely declined several times. GIVING BACK On the day Tebow received Floridas highest football honor, the noted philanthropist gave back. Tebow spent part of Saturday with former Florida student Mariel White, who has a rare blood disorder that contributed to four strokes and partial paralysis. White was invited to meet Tebow, her sports hero, on the SEC Nation set on campus. She was on the field before the game and in attendance when Tebow was inducted into the ring of honor. White was a sophomore last year when she became ill and had to withdraw from school. She was diagnosed with Hypereosinophilia, leading to other health issues. GATORSContinued From 1B B6

FDOT was awarded the 2018 TransComm Skills award for Best Interactive Presentation for its submission that focuses on distracted and impaired driving awareness. The presentation uses a combined approach of traditional educational methods and interactive technology to keep students engaged. Last year, FDOT purchased the Virtual Driver Interactive simulator from One Simple Decision that allows students to experience the first-hand dangers and consequences of distracted and impaired driving. The program consists of simulated drives, first-person consequence videos, interactive quizzes, and advice from experts through its Reality Check videos. Since then, several dozen presentations have been made to area students at career and safety fairs, as well as drivers education classes in FDOT earns praise for a new way to curb distracted driving.TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterTroy Roberts (standing), Florida Department of Transportation District Two Communications Specialist, helps Columbia High School student Christopher Simmons, 16, navigate his way through the FDOTs Virtual Driver Interactive simulator during a program at CHS.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, OCTOBER 713, 2018 local high schools. Distracted and impaired driving are major factors in many crashes that result in injuries or fatalities, said Greg Evans, FDOT District 2 Secretary. It is a concerning trend and we hope that this technology can help us warn students of the dangers associated with these acts and prevent future crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2015. During daylight hours, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving, which creates enormous potential for deaths and injuries. These statistics also show that teens were the largest age group reported as distracted at the times of fatal crashes. This program helps expose teens to the dangers and consequences of distracted driving, said Lake City-based FDOT Communications manager Tracy Hisler-Pace. We are hopeful our outreach efforts will lessen these bad habits at an early age. It is FDOTs goal to keep all motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists safe on Floridas roadways. FDOTContinued From 1CShould I keep 12-year-old car or trade it in?Dear Dave, Im driving a 12-year-old car with 210,000 miles on it. The car needs close to $2,000 in repairs, and its worth $5,000. I have $40,000 in cash saved, $40,000 in investments, and I make $80,000 a year. I also have $15,000 in student loan debt, but the only other thing I owe on is my house. Should I pay to repair the car, or buy something else in the $15,000 price range? Brett Dear Brett, Lets see, if you wrote a $15,000 check for a newer car and wrote a $15,000 check for the student loans, it would leave you with $10,000. I wouldnt buy a $15,000 car in your situation. Id buy a $10,000 car. You could probably sell the old one for around $3,000 if it needs repairs, combine that with your money and get a $13,000 car. Then, you could write a check and pay off the student loan debt. With no car payment, no student loan payment, and a good car, you can really lean into your budget and saving money. Youd have no debt except your home, and you could rebuild your savings in a hurry. Youd be in really good financial shape in about six months. Plus, youd have $15,000 in the bank in the meantime! DaveMortgage disability insurance?Dear Dave, If someone is following your plan, is it a good idea to get mortgage disability insurance during Baby Step 2? Craig Dear Craig, No, it is not. Mortgage disability insurance is a gimmick, and I would never recommend it to anyone. I think I know where youre going with this. During Baby Step 1, I encourage people to save up and set aside a beginner emergency fund of $1,000. Baby Step 2 is where you start paying off all your debts, except for your home, using the debt snowball system. A thousand dollars may not seem like a lot in savings during that time, but in the beginning its an attainable amount to save. Plus, its more than a lot of people have when they make the decision to get out of debt and gain control of their finances. Then, after finishing Baby Step 2 you move directly in Baby Step 3 fully-funding your emergency fund with three to six months of expenses. What I would recommend is having long-term disability insurance in place. Its fairly inexpensive, especially if you get it through your employer. Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored best-selling books and hosts The Dave Ramsey Show. Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS October is National Womens Small Business Month, and its no wonder were dedicating a whole month to celebrate. There are 12.3 million women-owned businesses, and over 30 million Americans working as independent workers or solopreneurs. With the endless free social media and selling platforms available to us today, theres never been a better time or bigger audience for women to launch their own side gig. Maybe youve always had a knack for repainting old thrift store furniture. Or maybe youre a gifted musician who could coach other young aspiring talent. Maybe you have a specific education, training, experience or skill that you could develop into a freelance business such as financial planning or graphic design. Whatever your thing may be, there are plenty of great reasons to get going. First, you can make extra money on the side. Extra money is always a good thing! Second, you can set your own schedule. That way you can build your business around your life versus the other way around. Also, a good thing! Finally, you get to utilize something youre good at and enjoy. Also, a good and fulfilling thing! Regardless of where you are now, this can be the year that you get started. But, of course, getting started is the hardest part! I coach women with side businesses through my Business Boutique events all over the country, and I know how difficult and overwhelming it can seem. So, here are the first five steps you can take to jump-start your side business: 1. Find community. Just because youre doing it on your own doesnt mean you have to do it alone. Find other people who can help support your dream, provide resources or connections that may help you, or give you advice when you need it. 2. Create a plan. It doesnt have to be fancy or fourteen pages long. You can make your own, or search for a template online. It doesnt matter how you do it; it just matters that you do it! 3. Be prepared to get scared. Fear is just a part of the journey, and if you know that going in, you can set yourself up to overcome it. Putting yourself out there can feel vulnerable and scary, but you cant succeed unless you do it! I write on this topic frequently because I battle fear just like you do. 4. Just take the first step. Business can be overwhelming with all that you have to do, especially when youre starting out. But dont focus on all that you have to do. Just focus on one thing that you must do. When you take that one baby step, it fuels your focus and gives you the confidence and momentum to take that second baby step. 5. Do it now. If you wait until youre ready, until you have more experience, or until all the details are perfect before you go for it, youll never do anything. Go for it nowwhen youre not ready, you dont have experience, its not perfect, and youre scared out of your mind. Do it anyway. Do it scared. Ready is a myth. These are the first five things you need to do to get started. And notice not one of them was go buy a bunch of equipment and materials or pay $10,000 for a professional website. Those things arent a bad investment later down the line when your business revenues justify it. But when youre starting out, the problem isnt the design of your website; its your fear, doubt, hesitation and feeling overwhelmed. If you do these five things, youll be well on your way to joining the movement of people making money doing what they love!

Christy Wright christywright.comCHRISTY SAYSFive simple steps to starting your side business If a Vizio TV spied on what you watch, you might be in line for a cash payoutIf your Vizio television spied on you over the last several years, you could receive a payout of $1.12 or perhaps as much as $31 under the terms of a proposed settlement of a consumer lawsuit against the Irvine TV manufacturer. The case stems from a 2015 report by ProPublica that found the companys smart TVs tracked customers viewing habits and shared that data with advertisers. Since then, Vizio has faced several lawsuits, including one that the company settled for $2.2 million with the Federal Trade Commission in February 2017. The $1.12 payout under the latest litigation is based on the assumption that all 16 million affected consumers will apply for a claim from a $10-million settlement fund, a conservative estimate of the amount that would be left over after fees and expenses. The lawyers representing Vizio customers said in court documents, however, that a more realistic assumption is that 5 percent of the class files a claim. That would mean each person receives $13, while court documents pegged the payout as high as $31. The attorneys are seeking a total monetary settlement of $17 million, with the named plaintiffs receiving $5,000. The two California law firms that handled the case can seek up to 25 percent of the total settlement value the $17 million, as well as an additional, still-undetermined sum. The settlement would resolve a federal lawsuit seeking class-action status that was filed against Vizio in December 2016 in Santa Ana. It alleged that the company collected and shared viewing data from Vizio smart TVs without consumers consent or knowledge. Affected individuals do not need to submit a receipt as part of a claim, and can choose to receive payment via check or through an electronic payment system such as PayPal. A 45-second notice of the settlement will be broadcast to 6 million Vizio smart TVs purchased by affected consumers. The notice, which will include the settlement website in the center of the screen and in large font, will appear on the screen three times, most likely when the TV is turned on, according to the proposed settlement.

Well announce it in next weeks edition.loan and an interest rate of 4 percent, your monthly payment will be $1,479, and your total interest paid less than $70,000. Still, 30-year mortgages can make financial sense. After all, youre probably saving for retirement, and by not spending too much on mortgage payments, you can sock away more each month for your future. Long-term money is likely to grow faster for you in the stock market than in real estate. Heres another smart strategy: Take out a 30-year loan with lower monthly payments, but make extra payments regularly, to pay down the principal faster. That can lop many years off the life of your loan. (Be sure to get a mortgage with no prepayment penalty.) Theres more to think about before you get a mortgage, such as whether you want a fixed-rate or adjustable-rate loan, and how much of a monthly payment you can afford. The more you know, the less you might have to pay for your dream home. To learn more, visit consumerfinance.gov/ consumer-tools/mortgages or read Home Buying Kit for Dummies by Eric Tyson (Wiley, $30).A Revved-Up StockGeneral Motors (NYSE: GM) faces concerns about rising aluminum and steel prices and a plateauing North American new-vehicle market, but it has made smart moves, positioning itself well in the new automotive era. GM has collected a number of its car-sharing projects under a unified brand, Maven, and has invested roughly $500 million in ride-sharing company Lyft. It purchased Cruise Automation giving it a significant presence in Silicon Valley and a huge credibility boost while exiting a money-losing European business when it sold its Opel/Vauxhall operations. GM is becoming a leader in smart mobility and driverless vehicles and has focused the company on more lucrative global auto markets, which could pay off for long-term investors. The situation isnt dire in the near term, either. GM continues to cruise in China, with sales growing 4.4 percent year over year during the first half of 2018 to 1.84 million units. (For context, crosstown rival Ford, which was slower to get into the Chinese market, posted a 25 percent year-over-year decline in the same period to 400,443 units.) GM is also rolling out all-new versions of its bread-and-butter Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size trucks during the back half of 2018, which should support pricing and profitability over the next few years. Meanwhile, the companys dividend recently yielded a fat 4.5 percent. Take a look under GMs hood. rffOver a BarrelI used to subscribe to a respected business magazine, and it would periodically send me an advertising supplement. In one of those, I saw an ad for an investment opportunity in single malt whiskey. Just $1,500 would get me a hogshead barrel (probably around 60 gallons) of raw un-aged whiskey in a bond warehouse in Glasgow, Scotland. Doing some simple arithmetic, it looked like it could be worth something in eight to 10 years, and if not, I would at least have a barrel of aged whiskey. What could go wrong? Turns out it was mostly fraudulent. There apparently was some whiskey somewhere, but I never was able to trace it. I also was notified a couple of years later that the merchant that had sold the investments was out of business, and the only hope of restitution was if I had paid for it with a credit card, because then the credit card company might be on the hook for it. Anyway, it ended up being a 100 percent loss. The magazine later apologized for selling ad space to hucksters. H.K.C., online The Fool Responds: This is a great reminder that any investment opportunities that seem too good to be true probably are. Also, its smart to do some due diligence on any companies youre considering investing in, to see what their track record is and if there are any red flags evident. Taken PrivateQI read that Tesla might be taken private. What does that mean? F.L., Columbia, MissouriACompanies often start out privately owned by their founders. If they grow and prosper, they may go public via an initial public offering (IPO), selling a chunk of themselves in shares on the stock market. Companies can go in the opposite direction, too, becoming private again, if their shares are bought back and no longer trade publicly. A high-profile example of a company being taken private is Dell. Founder Michael Dell, in partnership with a private equity firm, took his struggling computer company private in 2013. Now it looks like Dell will go public again. ***QDoes a low stock price mean a company is small, and vice versa? H.T., La Crosse, WisconsinANot at all. The stock price alone doesnt tell you much until you relate it to other numbers. To get at a companys market value, multiply its stock price by its number of shares. You have to factor in the number of shares to get an idea of a companys size. If Keyboard Depot (ticker: QWERTY) had a stock price of $100, for example, and 10 million shares outstanding, its market price (market capitalization, or market cap, as they say on Wall Street) would be $1 billion. (Size can also be measured by other factors, such as revenue or number of employees.) Consider that Cheesecake Factory, Starbucks and Verizon Communications were all recently trading for around $54 to $55 per share, but their market caps were, respectively, around $2 billion, $74 billion and $226 billion. Meanwhile, the WD-40 Company recently sported a share price near $188 but a market cap of $2.5 billion.Want more information about stocks?

The 15-year mortgage has a lot of upside for the right homebuyer. The main advantages of the 15-year loan are that youll often get a lower interest rate, and youll definitely pay less in interest over the life of the loan, building equity faster. The main downside: Your monthly payments will be higher. The 30-year mortgages main advantage is lower monthly payments but youll pay much more in interest and your interest rate will likely be higher. Still, with more affordable payments, you may be able to buy a bigger home. Imagine, for example, taking out a $200,000 mortgage to buy a $250,000 home. If you have a 30-year fixed-rate loan with an interest rate of 4.5 percent, youll pay $1,013 per month, and your interest paid over 30 years will top $160,000.

James Humphrey and Doug Wynn were hired into the apprentice program in August 2015. Derek Fillyaw joined them, having previously worked for SVEC as a right-of-way crewman. The apprentice pro gram ensures a long-term supply of highly trained, well-rounded journeyman lineworkers who can safely provide SVECs consumer-members with excellent electric service. To complete the program and become journeyman lineworkers, the graduates completed a minimum of 8,000 hours of on-the-job training and a minimum of 576 hours of academic study. The graduates also completed the Northwest Lineman College Lineman Certification Program that includes classroom, lab and field instruction. This is the second group to graduate since we launched our program in 2014, said SVEC CEO Michael McWaters. Were very proud of them for their hard work and dedication to their profession. Not everyone has what it takes to become a journeyman lineworker. SVEC currently employs 8 apprentice lineworkers and 24 journeyman lineworkers who maintain over 4,000 miles of electric distribution lines throughout an area of about 2,000 square miles in Floridas Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee counties. From staff reports The Week AheadWill great be good enough?Another earnings season is upon investors and it looks to be the brightest in several years. But the question in the week ahead is, will it be enough to satisfy investor optimism? Heading into the beginning of the third quarter reporting period, the S&P 500 stock index is hovering near new highs. Expectations are high for profits, and for strong profit forecasts. According to FactSet Research, profits for S&P 500 companies are predicted to grow by more than 19 percent compared to a year ago. That would make the third quarter the strongest quarter for corporate profit growth since early 2011. The energy sector likely will produce the strongest earnings growth driven by oil prices, which were up 50 percent this summer compared to last year. Just behind the pop in energy profits is the financial sector. Insurance company earnings improved thanks to a relatively calm third quarter. The destruction left behind last month by Hurricane Florence notwithstanding, last years Harvey, Irma and Maria devastated the communities they hit and cost the insurance industry billions of dollars. The financial reality is that those costs a year ago help insurance profit growth this year. Big banking stocks have lagged the overall market this year. Worries about a trade war, higher interest rates, and even a blue wave this election cycle have held down bank shares. Investors will begin hearing from banks like JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo when that trio reports their latest quarterly results on Thursday. Just as important as what companies report about the quarter that was is what they say about the quarters that will be. Those forecasts now have to account for the highest interest rate on the benchmark 10-year Treasury bond in over seven years. For banks, higher bond yields can lead to higher borrowing costs fop their customers, leading to higher profits for their shareholders. Miami Herald
Steamers a tasty spot in Cedar KeyLast Saturday, Kimberlynne and I decided to do something different rather than the usual Saturday chores and routines. She hadnt been to Cedar Key since she was a little girl and I hadnt been in ages, so off we went. An hour and a half later we crossed the bridge onto Cedar Key. Going there is like stepping back in time. Its still a sleepy, sun-baked fishing village with no fast food restaurants in sight. Since my last visit, it had a more vibrant, thriving feel. Tourists wandered slowly on Main Street and the dock area, restaurants were busy, there were constant ocean breezes and only one tour bus. It was lunchtime when we arrived and being your Taste Buddy I had researched where we would have lunch by asking Stephanie Griffith, former condo owner on Cedar Key, to make a recommendation. She suggested Steamers, located on Dock Street, for the food and the view. Her lunch favorites were the Crab Cake sandwich, the Shrimp Tacos and also the Clam Bowl. Although it is dockside, you will have a number of steps to enter Steamers. I took it slow and easy and gave my titanium knees a workout. Worth the effort. Every table has a view of the water and there is even an outside area if you like to eat in the heat. That day there was live music provided by two locals. Now, Im not a person who likes to be drowned out by music when Im enjoying a meal but this was the exception. It was softly played and Mike Allen sang music I could relate to and enjoy. Live music is every Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m. Other times are sporadic. Dennis Gill, owner, has created a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere and food is the focus. Its open 7 days a week except for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Several walls are covered in clam shells, nets and driftwood are draped across the ceiling and grays and blues accent the gorgeous panoramic view outside of the Gulf. We had immediate service by our waitress, Leanna Bryan, who I later learned was a manager also. She assured me the oysters and clams were local, in fact, the clams were from her familys clam farm. Deciding what to eat became even harder as I perused the menu. I decided to stay local and ordered the Clam Bowl ($9.99) and the fried oyster basket ($11.99). Kimberlynne is allergic to seafood and ordered her usual Philly Cheese steak ($10.99). Our food arrived and my enjoyment began. The Clam Bowl had 25 clams steamed in white wine and garlic. The clams were small, sweet, tender and piping hot. The surprise accompaniment was two hot yeast rolls. It seemed an odd choice to serve with the clams but one dip into the clam broth and I knew why. My fried oyster basket came midway through my enjoying the clams, so, I would eat a clam and then eat an oyster. The oysters were the small ones and were so fresh tasting with a slightly salty taste. Delicious dipped in their homemade tartar sauce. It was a truly memorable meal and every clam shell was empty. Kimberlynne liked her Philly. It was a generous serving of beef, grilled onions, red bell peppers and mushrooms with mozzarella on a hoagie roll. She has her own Philly rating system. She said this one was probably #5. Just so you know, her #1 is at FGC Gateway Grill (this will make Dr. Barrett happy) with Phish Tales #3. Steamers most requested sandwich is their fish sandwich ($13.99), which is either grouper, mahi or flounder either fried, pan seared or blackened served on a ciabatta with one side. In discussion with Leanna, she indicated their most popular appetizer is the Lobster Mac & Cheese ($10.99), which is elbow macaroni and lobster meat n a lobster TASTE BUDDIES Genie NormanTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.comThe clams at Steamers are locally farmed. The oysters like those in the fried oyster basket are locally grown as well. Philly cheese steak with Parmesan garlic fries.Photos by GENIE NORMAN/Lake City Reporter STEAMERS continued on 4D Colorado, as seen from the back of a motorcycleShortly after turning 40, I took a cross country road trip with my Dad on the back of his motorcycle. We just made it back to Colorado, where I saw a lot of sheep. There were the usual cows and horses, too. We finally did see Elk in Yellowstone yesterday. Still havent seen a bear or moose. There are mountain ranges everywhere, some peaks with snow too. I saw the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs today. Boy does it move fast! Through Aspen, we drove through White River National Forest and over Independence Pass awesome! Got lots of pictures snow, snow, snow and aspen trees and water running from everywhere. We literally drove over the top of the Rocky Mountains. It was so cool. At the top was the Continental Divide at 12,095 ft. We passed through Twin Lakes TV show, right? Then stopped in Leadville, Colorado, for dinner. They have an active coal mine and there is a lot of history to this town and all kinds of famous people passed through here at one time or another. We decided to make it back up to the interstate for our hotel stop, which was in Frisco, Colorado, at the Alpine Inn great room, clean & big but no hair dryer, ugh. Well I have definitely been roughing it so to speak Ive worn the same clothes for 3 days, only changing underwear, but they have been warm. On the top I have an undershirt, 2 long sleeve T-shirts, a sweatshirt, then been covering it with 3 extra layers of coats. On the bottom, my underwear, long johns, jeans, then sweatpants and the rain pants over the top. And if you think about it, its not like Ive been sweating. Now my rain jacket has torn up from the back around my left arm and shoulder. Its funny to see us coming & going with holes in our outerwear. I was trying like hell not to have to put on all of the clothes Ive had to wear. But it was already lightly sprinkling when we went out to load up the bike and 34 degrees. So, on the layers went. Mind you, Im not getting wet at all. All the layers have just gotten uncomfortable after 3 straight days. We went through a small town, Empire, Colorado. I saw the Original Hard Rock Caf and got excited. I had already told Dad my HRC stories, so he thought it was funny and said I had to get a picture of it. Well I said, we should just stop and eat breakfast there as it was already 9 a.m. and they havent fed me yet. So, we stopped, got breakfast, a picture and a T-shirt. The story here is this caf was established in 1934 and is based on mining in the area. The other Hard Rock Cafes were established in 1971 and are based on rock and roll. Apparently one of the larger franchises sued this caf and as a result they added The Original to their name. Interesting stuff you learn on the road. After breakfast, we got about 5 miles or so up the mountain and it started snowing. Yes, snowing! It was actually pretty cool. We stopped to take it all in and took some pictures. The ground was still warm enough at that elevation that we could keep going without the roads icing up. However, the snow does not melt and run off the windshields like water does. So, safety prevailed and we turned around. We drove toward Estes Park, Colorado, which is on the east side of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Its a pretty town and bigger than I thought it would be. Here is where we saw A LOT of elk. Still no bears though. The scenery was more of the same wed been seeing throughout the area still very pretty, though, and a great trip.TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.

Keeping busy will also keep you out of trouble. Say less and do more to make your home, community and relationship with others better. What you do will count, so be positive. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Only make changes that will result in greater stability. If you disrupt anything, you will end up cleaning up the mess you made. Focus on what you can do that will benefit everyone involved. A romantic opportunity should not be ignored. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Forward motion will get you where you want to go. A day trip, seminar or hanging out with people you find entertaining and mentally stimulating will give you some fresh ideas that will help you improve your life. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont take on too much or go into battle with someone you love. Problems at home will escalate if you dont tone down emotions. Base your actions on facts, not assumptions or hearsay. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take better care of yourself and walk away from temptation that can lead to indulgent behavior. Use your intelligence and common sense when dealing with relationships. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Family gatherings or neighborhood events will bring you closer to the people who affect and influence your life the most. Take this opportunity to show off your attributes and gain approval for something you want to pursue. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Host an event or call a family meeting. By being the coordinator, you will gain control and be able to monitor whatever is going on that could disrupt your plans. Dont let anger be the cause of a breakup. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take better care of yourself physically. Stick close to home and participate in projects that will add to your comfort and emotional outlook. Nurture important relationships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Energy and enthusiasm will help you get things done. Taking part in something you believe in will lead to interesting new friendships. Dont let someone from your past distract you or keep you from engaging in new beginnings. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at what you can do, not what you cannot. The only limitation you have is the one you put on yourself. Personal change needs to come from the heart, and honesty should be behind whatever move you decide to make. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Tend to personal, financial or contractual matters. Sort through paperwork that can make a difference to the outcome of a situation you face. Dont let anyone bully you into something you know you shouldnt do. Be secretive about plans. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An unusual opportunity should not be ignored. Getting together with someone from your past will lead to new beginnings. Trust in your intuition to direct you in affairs of the heart as well as money matters. DEAR ABBY: Im a man in my mid-30s. For the past couple of years Ive been in love with my best friend. She doesnt know how I feel, and I know she doesnt feel the same way about me. (She calls me the brother she always wanted.) I try hard to fight these feelings so our friendship can continue. She has been a huge part of my life, so losing her friendship would be devastating. To make matters more difficult, we are currently roommates and spend lots of time together. My heart breaks when she goes on dates or talks about guys she may be interested in. I know shell never see me as more than a friend. Is there any way I can get over these feelings so we can continue this amazing friendship? -FRIEND ZONE IN VERMONT DEAR FRIEND ZONE: It might be easier to accomplish if you didnt live together, and I think you should tell her why. While it may end the fantasies you are nurturing, I see no reason for it to end your amazing friendship. Unless you are a masochist, please do not allow the status quo to continue because it isnt healthy for you. DEAR ABBY: One of my neighbors invited me to go shopping for plants at a local nursery. We had gone there a few days before. I drove that time; she said she would drive this time. I enjoy her company and was happy to go again. Well, we had to take two different highways to get there, and she drove between 40 and 45 miles an hour. Cars were passing us left and right going 65 or 70, and she couldnt understand why people honked at her. She seemed surprised when I informed her it was because she was driving so slow. It was very scary, and I dont ever want to ride with her again. How can I tactfully let her know that from now on Ill do the driving? Also, can I suggest that she drive only on side streets? -SCARED FOR MY LIFE DEAR SCARED: You are right to be concerned for your neighbors safety. Drivers like her cause accidents as people become frustrated and need to pass her. Drivers are expected to observe the speed limits, and someone who drives at a crawl when the speed limit is 65 or 70 is breaking the law. If they are spotted by law enforcement, they can be ticketed for it. I know this because that is what happened to my grandmother when she was in her 80s. For both your sakes, please share this information with her. DEAR ABBY: I was at an estate sale recently and saw a woman scratch the price off an item. I gave her the death stare, but was there anything else I should have done? There were no staff around that I could see. -UNETHICAL IN THE MIDWEST DEAR UNETHICAL: Unless the woman was going to shoplift the item, she had to have given her money to someone on the premises. What you should have done was find someone who was staffing the sale and alerted him or her to what you observed.

4D SU NDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER cream sauce topped with Parmesan. Tied for first place in the favorite soups are the Crab Bisque ($4.99 & $6.99) and the Clam Chowder ($4.99 & $6.99). Favorite pasta is the Seafood Pasta ($20.99), which is loaded with grouper, shrimp, scallops and clams tossed in a lobster cream sauce with spinach and served over penne pasta and topped with Parmesan, balsamic reduction and herb oil. Goodness, this sounds totally decadent but awesome. Low Country Boil ($21.99) with clams, mussels, shrimp, snow crab, corn, sausage and potatoes steamed in a Old Bay, is a favorite of the entrees along with the Portobello & Blue Crab, which is made by grilling the mushroom cap and then filling it with a rich herb cream cheese mixed with blue crab meat then wrapped in a crispy pastry. It is also topped with a balsamic reduction and herb oil ($18.99). Stephanie mentioned the Crab Cake sandwich ($11.99). It is served on a ciabatta roll with a side of remoulade sauce. The tacos ($10.99) are either fish, shrimp or chicken with pico de gallo, zesty slaw with cilantro, lime, sour cream. Five dessert choices all sounded delicious and are $5.99 each. Princess Pineapple Cake sounded like it would be my first choice. Its three layers of white cake filled with sweet cream cheese, fresh pineapple and finished with sweet pineapple-coconut glaze. There is a full bar menu with $6 drink specials every day. I loved the names of some of their concoctions: Spotty Bottom Rum Runner, Sex on the Dock, Cedar Key Island tea, Clam Island Punch. Cedar Key became even more endearing when we rented a golf cart for 2 hours ($20) and Kimberlynne drove us up and down every street. We loved the old, restored homes, the downtown businesses and our quick visit to the Island Hotel, supposedly haunted by 13 ghosts, and the Cedar Key Bed and Breakfast on 3rd Street. Would love to stay here and enjoy their gorgeous garden. Maybe next trip. Interested in the clam industry, I did a bit of reading on line and understood more what it has meant to this small fishing village. Net bans and oyster bed closures led to shellfish aquaculture as an alternative employment opportunity. The land is leased from the State of Florida and since clams grow faster in our warm water, they provide year-round jobs unlike their counterparts in the New England clam industry. Growing clams takes 15-18 months from start to finish and it is now a $50 million industry in Florida. Kudos to Cedar Key for creating this economic success offering over 500 job opportunities to a fishing village in danger of fading away.
