Around 20 volunteers pitched in to help.TOP BANANABy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA piece of Nader Vakili is in the bananas sold in grocery stores throughout the world. Vakili explained the technique he developed that is now used to breed the modern version of the fruit. The banana we eat today is a strange creature, Vakili said. The 91-year-old retired plant geneticist-pathologist discussed the scientific basis of the challenges faced by the United Fruit Company in the mid-20th century. Its too technical, Vakili said. The bottom line, he said, was the multi-national business was bleeding money. Diseases were really raising havoc with the company, Vakili said. Until the 1950s, most bananas cultivated and sold commercially were of Gros Michel variety, nicknamed Big Mike. Panama Disease wiped out vast tracts of plantations, forcing a switch to the Cavendish banana carried in stores today. Cavendish bananas are sterile mutants, Vakili said. And consequently, it is difficult to handle, he said. To breed. Vakili, after earning a Ph.D. from Purdue University in Indiana, was Vakili examines a wild banana plant in his Lake City yard. At least one specimen is the direct descendant of a sample he brought back from Vietnam. Nader Vakili figured out how to breed a sterile mutant plant.

This sinkhole leads directly to our drinking water and the water that is the source of our springs and rivers. Wed like to keep it clean. Black said during the first few hours they pulled mattresses, recliners, appliances, household trash, herbicide and kerosene bottles, and other waste from the area. Theres just about every kind of thing you can find in the entire world in this sink hole, she said. Lawrence Buttson, who owns the property, said its great to see. Ive been wanting this to happen for years, he said, noting he is 82 years old and that the property was willed to him by his aunt. Some of my own neighbors dumped stuff in here. It is believed the sinkhole connects to the Santa Fe River. Because the sinkhole is about 90-100 feet deep, volunteers had to use an ATV and rope to drag some of the bigger items to the road. Wayne Kinard, who has participated in other cleanup projects in the region, spent a few hours Saturday helping in the latest effort. What were trying to tell people is that anything that is in this sinkhole when it rains and the runoff is going in that water, which goes to the aquifer and eventually youre going to be drinking it, he said. Please keep the trash out of the sinkholes and off the ground and youll have cleaner, better water. Michael survivor recounts fear By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comStuffed in the closet with three dogs, Cynthia Stewart thought for sure she heard the Reaper knocking. It sounded like a train, said the 70-year-old woman with family in Lake City. It was a scary few hours, Stewart said. When she sought shelter in the closet from Hurricane Michael, her housemate and their three guests were trying to hold shut the two glass doors in the back. I thought they were crazy and all going to die, Stewart said. Stewart moved in to her friends home in Lynn Haven, north of Panama City, after becoming a widow several years ago. The two were previously housemates in the s and s, before each got married. When Stewart emerged from the closet to scout the damage to the home, the impact was mercifully minimal. Trees outside were missing, the garage doors were mangled and there was water and roof damage but the house was still standing, she said. So we were lucky in that extent, Stewart said. It was easy to get lost in her own neighborhood after the storm, she said. Houses and landmarks that used to be there were gone, and the street had a line of sight to homes that used to not be visible, messing with her sense of direction, Stewart said. It was very hard to get your bearings, she said. Last week, Stewart was staying at a motel in Pensacola, saying she was thinking about the people who were less fortunate after the storm hit. We have a friend in Mexico Beach her house is gone, she said. Stewarts family moved to Lake City in time for her to attend and graduate from what is now Florida Gateway College. Her parents, Warren and Evone Capell, stayed here after she moved. Theyre deceased now, Stewart said, but their home is occupied by her niece, Emali Childs. Stewarts uncles, Robert and Wood Moreland (Moley) Capell, owned Capells Shoe Store in downtown Lake City. Lake City was my home base, Stewart said.

CLEANUPContinued From 1A Crash leads to child neglect charges for county womanBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Columbia County woman, who was attempting to flee from a hit-andrun crash Thursday morning, is facing more charges after authorities learned she had left her three children, aged 1 to 10 years old, home alone, reports said. Kyllie Kiersta Sheppard, 31, of NW U.S. Highway 41, faces three counts of child neglect without great bodily harm, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana and smuggling contraband into the county jail. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $30,000 bond. According to sheriffs reports, at 7:47 a.m. Thursday county dispatch received a call about a hit-and-run near the intersection of State Road 247 and County Road 252B, where it was reported a woman driving a gold-colored Honda SUV struck a vehicle pulling a trailer. A witness reportedly saw the driver of the Honda get out the vehicle, check for damage and leave the scene. The witness followed the vehicle to Bascom Norris Drive, where deputies were waiting. When a deputy tried to conduct a traffic stop, the woman attempted to drive around the stopped cruisers at the traffic signal. A deputy maneuvered his patrol car to prevent her from fleeing the area. When the driver, identified as Sheppard, opened the door, deputies reported smelling marijuana and seeing an alcoholic beverage. They said Sheppard had small bits of marijuana covering her shirt. Authorities reported finding multiple loose pieces of a green, leafy substance identified as marijuana and a small, clear bag in the center console containing more marijuana, as well as a marijuana cigarette and marijuana roach on the drivers side floorboard. The total weight of the marijuana was 23 grams with about 1 gram of marijuana extract. Sheppard told deputies she had three children but was unsure of their location. Deputies found the children at Sheppards residence without adult supervision. The oldest child reportedly said she hadnt seen her mother since she and her siblings returned from trick or treat at 10 p.m. Wednesday. A Department of Children and Family services worker allowed a family friend to take the children to school and daycare until a family member was contacted. While Sheppard was being booked, authorities found another gram of marijuana oil in her pant leg, reports said. Sheppard

A high-traffic gas station in the midst of Lake Citys commercial strip will have its grand opening Tuesday. Murphy USA District Manager Joseph Cassano confirmed the announcement Friday. Before the announcement a sign outside the construction site read that completion was expected in winter 2018. Cassano said the grand opening, ribbon-cutting ceremony was planned with the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce for the occasion. The chamber published information stating the event would be held from noon to 1 p.m. at Murphy USA, 2659 US Highway 90, in the Walmart parking lot on Tuesday. As of Friday there was still caution tape running pump to pump and blanks where gas prices will be shown. But Cassano said that Tuesday would present a different picture. Locals familiar with the former station have likely noticed some major changes, including what site supervisors said was a new 1,200-square-foot convenience store that replaced the 150-square-foot cashier space. Convenience store added to former configuration.
The ugly side of high school basketball recruiting was in view recently when a Manhattan jury convicted Adidas executive James Gatto, head of the firms global sports marketing, and two others on fraud charges. The charges related to a scheme that involved making payments to the families of top high school recruits to induce them to attend universities including the University of Louisville and the University of Kansas sponsored by Adidas. The athletes were also asked to sign agreements to be represented by parties involved in the illicit scheme when they joined the NBA. The payments were a violation of NCAA rules, and prosecutors contended that universities awarded scholarships to student athletes not knowing they were ineligible under the rules. This incident raises the question: Is corruption in business a problem of bad apples or bad barrels? Bad apples is too easy an explanation. If that were the problem, then all organizations need to do to avoid wrongdoing and associated risks and costs is hire good people. But the problem is more complex. There are bad apples in business, as in all walks of life, but they are the exception rather than the rule. The vast majority of business students I teach and business people I know are good people who want to do well for themselves and their loved ones, but also want to succeed with integrity and do well for others. Deeper understanding requires recognizing that circumstances often matter as much as scruples. This was demonstrated in the landmark Milgram obedience experiments in social psychology in which naive subjects in the role of teachers were asked to administer increasingly strong and harmful electric shocks to students crying out in pain and pleading to be set free. All of the teachers videotaped in one of the experiments were clearly troubled by what they were doing and wanted to stop but more than half of them fully heeded the commands of authority rather than the voice of conscience. The Milgram experiments confirm that moral behavior arises at the intersection of character and context, and that as often as not context trumps character. In Milgrams words, often it is not so much the kind of person a man is as the kind of situation in which he finds himself that determines how he will act. Organizations that wish to avoid all the costs of employee wrongdoing should consequently pay as much attention to the organizational context they create as to the character of the employees themselves. Do leaders emphasize that achieving goals is important but that they must be achieved with integrity? Where are there gaps between the professed standards of the company and the standards most employees follow in practice? Most importantly, does the companys pay scheme incentivize immoral behavior, as happened in the fake accounts scandal at Wells Fargo when the pay of employees who created millions of unauthorized accounts was linked to selling customers multiple financial products? As the American writer Upton Sinclair sagely observed, It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it. It would be surprising if the compensation of those involved in the fraudulent payments scheme at Adidas was not linked to the number of top high school basketball recruits who decided to attend and play for a university sponsored by Adidas. Businesspeople are also more likely to engage in bad behavior if they assume that their competitors are doing so and that they will be at a competitive disadvantage if they do not. Casey Donnelly, Gattos attorney, claimed in her opening statement at the trial that every major apparel company engaged in the same payment practice, and that her client was simply attempting to level the playing field. Federal authorities engaged in a yearslong investigation of shadowy dealings involving shoe companies, sports agents, college coaches and top high school basketball players have reportedly looked into Nike and Under Armour as well as Adidas. Time will tell whether those companies were involved in similar payment schemes. But it is already clear that such misbehavior wont stop if we prosecute bad apples like Gatto but dont touch the rotten barrels that produce them. OPINION Hearing the totals from the numbers of early voters who turned out to cast their ballots in Columbia County made my heart swell. Im proud to live among so many able-bodied, sensible Americans who see the value in freedom and participate in the process. Patriots vote. It is that simple. Was the turnout a majority of those registered? Of course not. And, most likely the totals will not reach this level by the time the polls close on Tuesday night, Election Day. Voters who vote early do so with passion and intent. They cant wait to make their voice heard. They cant wait to make a difference. I cast my ballot Friday morning and there was a positive buzz in the air at the Supervisor of Elections office. It was the feeling of the best of America. It was patriotic. It was welcoming. Everyone was friendly and energetic, but very professional. Between the full-time employees at the office and the extra election workers, I had a pleasant exchange with one of the candidates campaigning nearby. I saw business associates, people from church, and several friends I hadnt seen in months all in the scope of 10 minutes at the early voting polls. I shook enough hands to qualify for the ballot. During my voting lap through the supervisors office, I also noticed upstanding Columbia Countians of no less than four different ethnic backgrounds. All were interacting with others in line, chatting with friends, saying hello, catching up with those they hadnt seen in awhile, same as me. Imagine that, racial harmony at the polling place. I captured all of these images in my mind and as I was walking away from the building, I thought about how silly and out of control national American politics have gotten and how most of the problems and the shenanigans seem to come from the major metropolitan areas. Turn off the television networks and look around your own community and maybe you will see the world is not in quite the panic some in the Beltway think it is. Sure, we have interesting political squabbles here and sometimes they reach what some consider the dirty level, but nothing comparable to the minute-by-minute onslaught at the national level. For the most part, we handle our politics face to face and with respect. Is there anything better than the chicken perlou political rallies hosted at locations around the county by the local Republican committee? This is America at its best. What about the live streamed political forums? Candidates here speak directly to the people and are accessible for questions and voters in this county expect it. Columbia County is a special place made up of solid, no-nonsense working people. We know the value of freedom. Its refreshing to see people excited about casting their ballots in a general election. Our community, and communities like ours across the land, are the foundation of this great country. If you didnt get a chance to early vote, you still can do your part and make your voice heard on Tuesday, Election Day. Vote at your specific polling place from 7 a.m. 7 p.m. Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION Just what weve been waiting forCity and county officials have finally joined forces, and in a big way. Working together, they landed a $10 million state grant to build a much-needed wastewater treatment plant on the east side of town, opening the door to industrial growth. We congratulate and commend all involved. The plant will serve the North Florida Mega Industrial Park but thats not all. Its half-million gallon a day capacity should be enough to fuel economic growth throughout that part of the county for many years. As for the industrial park, it is privately owned, but the jobs it is expected to bring will benefit all. Landing the money for the plant is a big story. An even bigger story is how city and county officials were able to set aside past differences and pool their resources for the greater good. This is just what weve been asking for from the beginning. As we see it, this is the start of a new era, and an end to the age of working at cross purposes. That can only be good for the folks who pay everybodys salaries you, the taxpayer. We are finally on the right road. Lets stay the course and see where it leads.Freedom rings loudly hereJoseph Holt is an ethics professor at the University of Notre Dames Mendoza College of Business.Why good businesspeople do bad things Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1884, Democrat Grover Cleveland was elected to his first term as president, defeating Republican James G.

SUNDA Y, NOVEMBER 4, 2018 LOCAL L AA KE CIT YY REPOR TER 7A among the scientists joining the company in the late 1950s to advance its ability to breed sturdier, more resilient bananas. Others had tried but failed, he said. But it was easy, apparently. Based out of a large lab in Honduras, he traveled the world visiting the likes of Central America, Southeast Asia, the South Pacific to collect genetic samples. Ive been all around the world in places nobody has been, he said. In the wild, bananas come in a variety of shapes and sizes, such as an astonishingly large specimen Vakili found in Papa New Guinea. It is a magnificent thing to look at from across the jungle, he said. Vakili brought back 700 edible varieties of bananas and 23 species, taken from places such as the Philippines. Other scientists tended to face problems with a less surgical approach, he said. The best way to explain it to you, is you have a strong metal box with a lock, Vakili said. Do you take a sledgehammer to it, or do you find a key? The key, it turned out, was paying attention to how the seeds germinated, he said. Vakili took a wild seed and soaked it in water for 48 hours. This caused a plug to be pushed out, exposing the growing tip of an embryo. That knowledge was used to cross-breed species with different numbers of chromosomes. Vakili asked the company to let him run a breeding program, but was turned down. Company breeders were using the varieties he had collected, but he couldnt get his hands on them. When you do that work with the company, the company owns it, Vakili said. After leaving the United Fruit Company, Vakili worked at a University of Florida research station in Fort Pierce for about 18 months. When he left UF, he found a letter in the mail asking him to volunteer for a stint as an agricultural adviser in Vietnam in the 1960s, while the war there continued. Similar requests went out to hundreds of scientists who had worked at universities in Florida, Hawaii, Texas and California, asking them to help improve Vietnamese agriculture. Not a single response, Vakili said. Except for him. Of the eight advisers who arrived in Vietnam, Vakili said six were not scientists, and the only other one who was didnt spend time out in the field instead, he brought a suitcase full of books and planned to read for the duration of his twoyear stint. Despite some tension with a Vietnamese administrator who accused him of working for the CIA, Vakili set about traveling the country on a search for wild bananas. I was out in the boonies, he said. His wife and children lived in Bangkok, where he visited them for about a week every five or six weeks. In one village, Vakili found a group of angry women and children. They circled around Vakili, who asked his translator what was going on. They want to kill you, the translator replied. The village was given seeds to plant crops, but American planes flew by and sprayed Agent Orange. While recounting the story in his Lake City home, Vakili suddenly stopped talking, removed his glasses and reached for a box of tissues, wiping tears from his face. After persuading the villagers to let him go by saying hed return with food, Vakili approached an American colonel at a military headquarters, where he had clearance. A map in the room showed the flight paths for Agent Orange runs an orange line ran right through the village he had returned from. They almost killed me, Vakili told the colonel. The colonel told a subordinate to wipe out the line and redraw it about 20 kilometers to the south. OK, now we havent done it, the colonel responded. Unhappy with the flippant response, Vakili left the base before he could ask about providing food to the village. I just walked out and never went back, he said. So I dont know what happened to those poor people. By the end of his two years in Vietnam, the country had the best possible edible selection of bananas, Vakili said. This not only provided sustenance, but boosted the nations economy. He still had to explain the benefits of his presence to a group sent to collect a delivery of banana rhizomes a part of the plant used to cultivate new growth. Viet Cong fighters taken as prisoners approached Vakili to claim the goods. Suddenly, one of them jumped at me, Vakili said. The assailant had a short blade, giving Vakili an advantage. With me putting my 30-inch machete to his throat, he couldnt get me, he said. Vakili explained his purpose in Vietnam and all he had done to boost agriculture in the country, imploring the men to prepare the rhizomes for planting. I told them, if you kill me, all this goes to waste so why doesnt he sit down and clean them, Vakili said. Vakili continued to work as a geneticist until the 1990s. His last job was with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, working with corn in Iowa. He moved to Lake City with his wife in 1999, seeking some place warmer they could retire to after spending so much time in tropical or subtropical areas for his work, its what they were used to. But they also didnt want to deal with hurricanes, after facing typhoons in Asia. So we put our finger on Lake City, Vakili said.

FGC routs Trinity in home openerBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comWith over 1,000 fans in attendance, including former players, the Timberwolves didnt disappoint in their first home game in 23 years. Florida Gateway College gave fans plenty to cheer about, from high-flying dunks to emphatic blocks. Freshman guard Bryan OBoyle couldnt miss in a 30-point performance. OBoyles big night from behind the arc, burying seven three-pointers, helped FGC pull away for a 89-75 home-opener victory in the Howard Center Saturday night. It feels pretty good, OBoyle said after the game. We havent had basketball here in 23 years, and to get it back in our first home game with a crowd like this, its just unbelievable I didnt expect to be 2-0 already, but we have a really good coaching staff. We practice hard every single day. We have a really good team and I think were going to have a really good season.

Columbia enters the playoffs after winning nine of ten games. By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comA lackluster performance in the opening half left the Tigers clinging to just a one-possession lead at intermission. Columbia made adjustments, specifically on the defensive end, as the Tigers stymied the Bulldogs ground game in the second half. Columbia kept Bolles contained, giving up only 27 rushing yards after halftime in a 34-19 regular season finale win at Tiger Stadium Friday night. It was a hard-fought, decisive victory a win the Tigers believe will carry them into the state playoffs, starting next week. We came out pretty slow actually, safety Sirr Talbott said after the game. It was all about execution and getting the momentum back. We knew the offense was going to do their job, so we had to come back and do our job Were getting there. Its about getting hot in November. Thats our motto. Were getting hot for November. After falling to Bolles in last years finale, Columbia junior quarterback Jordan Smith helped his team get some revenge with a four-touchdown performance. Smith was impressive, finishing with 299 total yards, making plays through the air and ground.

Then they got a little help from their friends over at Pace High School. Behind 130 rushing yards and three touchdowns from running back Stanley Maxwell, Fort White pulled away from Terry Parker for a 34-19 win on homecoming night at Arrowhead Stadium. Pace then defeated Pensacola Catholic 37-30 a little over an hour later, a result that should give the Indians a home playoff game in next weeks Region 1-3A quarterfinals based on the Lake City Reporters calculations. Fort White (8-2) entered the night with the No. 4 seed in Region 1-3A with a 38.22 average, just ahead of Pensacola Catholic and Taylor Countys 37-point averages. Taylor County also lost to Suwannee 33-6, meaning Fort White should be hosting Penscaola Catholic while Taylor County likely heads to Baldwin, which locked up the No. 3 seed with a win over Paxon.

She was 83. Hulman George, the speedways chair man of the board emeritus, died in Indianapolis with her family at her side, the speedway said in a statement. Our mother was such a unique, wonder ful person. She loved her family, friends, auto racing and animals with equal passion, said Tony George, current chairman of IMS. She was a quiet pioneer in so many ways, from owning a race team in the 1950s and 1960s to overseeing a period of tremendous growth and evolution while chairman of the board at IMS. Hulman George was IMS chairman from 1988 through 2016. Her father, Anton Tony Hulman Jr., purchased the speedway in 1945 and saved it from demolition after World War II. Racing and the facility became a staple of Mari Hulman Georges life. Hers was a familiar figure and voice before the Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 from the late 1990s until 2015. She was known by millions as the woman who gave the command to start engines for the Indianapolis 500 and other events at the speedway, but her true legacy will be the generous and kind philanthropy she learned from her parents, George said. That compassion and desire to help people and animals every day are the true hallmarks of her incredible life. Racing giant Roger Penske called her an inspiration.

FGC went into intermission clinging to a 43-23 advantage after letting Trinity crawl back late. We had to focus on the things that we know were capable of doing, FGC coach Charles Ruise said of the second half. We got in a little bit of a hurry [in the first half]. First game, a lot of them had friends and family come out, so I expected that. I just wanted them to come out focused and continue to play together. The Timberwolves stepped up their defense even more in the second half. Hot shooting from OBoyle kept the Tigers at a distance. Kenny Brown Jr and Diamond Smith also chipped in, combing for 31 points on the night. FGCs lead grew to as many as 20 points in the second half before pulling away for their first home win. This feels great, Brown Jr said after the game. Coming and playing in front of all these people after not having basketball for 23 years, its really something.

SUNDA Y, NOVEMBER 4, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSTime is now for big game pellet gunsBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterPellet guns have come a long ways over the years. We now have a line of pellet guns capable of firing pellets from a bore as large as .50 caliber. The bullet weight for these pellets range from 95 to 275 grains. Some even fire arrows. Yes, these guns will take down deer and hogs. They are indeed Big Game Pellet Guns. One of the .50 caliber models can also shoot No.8 shot for small game. Although big bore pellet guns have been around for several years, they are slow to catch on with hunters. But they are not a fad in the sense that their use will pass. They are here to stay. As the years go by, we will see more of them in the stores and out in the woods. For now, most are ordered through the internet. In a discussion with Tony Young, FWC, (Tony writes the Outta the Woods column for Woods and Water) Florida now allows hunters to use pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air guns firing single bullets or arrows to take deer during general gun season on private lands and on WMAs, if the gun is at least .30 caliber. In Florida, the definition of a firearm centers on the weapon firing a projectile through the action of an explosive. In other words firearms use gunpowder. Pellet guns do not use gunpowder so they are not considered a firearm per se. Ive been told this makes it legal for a convicted felon to hunt using a pellet gun, instead of a firearm. Some of the companies making Big Bore Pellet guns carry recognizable names, such as Benjamin, Crossman and Winchester. Others have names such as Evanix, Hatsan, and Bailkal. These air rifles are not cheap. Prices typically range from $600 $900. They use very high pressure compressed air (+3000 psi) for propulsion. So in addition to the cost of the pellet gun, a special tank needs to be purchased to charge up the gun. This will set the user back another $500-$750. The tanks are typically refilled at scuba shops. Once the onboard cylinder on the pellet gun is fully charged, it can effectively fire up to six rounds. Each fired round causes a loss of air pressure. By the time the seventh round is fired, the pressure is too low to use for hunting purpose. The hunter would need to hook up the big tank on the pellet gun and refill its onboard tank. It goes without saying that marksmanship plays a big role in hunting, but this is especially true with a pellet gun. In order to achieve a humane kill, the hunter should be able to carefully place the round. This is because a pellet gun does not attain the velocity and energy than that of a comparable firearm. These guns are nonetheless lethal and should be afforded the same level of safety given to any firearm. The big bore pellet guns are powerful, relatively quiet, and quasi legal to fire in most areas. Listed range is 150 yards, but shots should be limited to 75 yards or less. Because they dont have a loud report like a firearm does, they may have a use in hunting semi-rural areas where loud gunshots would be disturbing. A large number of hunters have turned to bow hunting because its quiet. Now there is another option for hunters that need to be discrete. Big bore pellet guns may be just the ticket to fill a certain niche. Their only drawback is the price. Do keep in mind, a pellet gun of any caliber is not a toy and the rules of firearm safety should be followed. The first rule of firearm safety is always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Stay safe and good hunting.COURTESY PHOTOS Hunter takes careful aim with a big bore pellet rifle. Crossman big bore pellet gun with camo stock in .357 caliber. FWC, partners discuss enhanced support for continued red tide responseFrom staff reportsOn Nov. 1, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection leadership highlighted continued red tide response, including enhanced testing efforts, technology and equipment to support impacted communities, at a media availability at the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute.

4B SUNDA Y, NOVEMBER 4, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER Photos by CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White quarterback Dylan Blair snaps the ball during Friday nights game at Arrowhead Stadium. COLLEGE FOOTBALL COMMENTARYWin or go home for Blair, receivers Stanley Maxwell has done his part this season. Game after game, Fort Whites workhorse running back has pounded opposing defenses. He did it again Friday night, gashing Terry Parker for 130 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-13 win at Arrowhead Stadium. And again, Maxwell didnt have help from his passing game. Quarterback Dylan Blair and his receivers struggled to find any rhythm, with Blair completing just six of 12 attempts for 91 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception. All season long, Blair and his receivers have claimed their chemistry has been getting better, yet it hasnt translated on the field. If the Indians plan to make a deep playoff run, which will begin next Friday against Pensacola Catholic, then that needs to change. Or it could be an early exit. Its really important going into the playoffs, receiver Rahman Paul said. It would give us huge boost in the playoffs if the chemistry was great. It wasnt here tonight but hopefully during practice this week well get it together in time for the playoffs. The question is, as we head into Week 12, will it ever get it there? Blair and his receivers have spent plenty of time during and after practice working on it all season long. Yet Blair still sails passes, his receivers still drop them or they just dont adjust on a ball that should be caught. So what gives? Weve just got to keep on running the same exact plays in practice as we do in the game and keep getting better at them, Blair said. Weve pretty much got them down so weve just got to put it on the field. Sounds like a pretty simple solution, no? Then why havent we seen it this season? It seems like we do everything right but it just falls apart in the game, Paul said. In practice we do everything right but in the game different scenarios show up and we dont know what to do. Paul and company are running out of time to figure it out. The teams the Indians will go up against in the playoffs will be the toughest theyve faced yet. Blair isnt going to be able to just turn around and hand the ball off to Maxwell every time the passing game goes awry. Maxwell cant do everything on his own. Yes, he gets spelled by Brayden Summers here and there during games, but he can only take so much of a pounding now that its this late in the season. The Indians are heading into game No. 11 and Maxwell needs help. He needs Blair, Paul and the rest of the crew to step it up. Im not going to say we need it a lot but its pretty important, Maxwell said. Its needed if we want to keep winning games. If Blair and his receivers cant connect consistently in the playoffs, defenses are just going to stack the box until they can prove otherwise. I expect Pensacola Catholic to do just that and Blair better be ready. He has to be. Fort Whites season depends on it. I still think were going to have to have our passing game, Fort White head coach Jackson said. I really believe were going to have to be balanced. Stanleys doing a great job but were going to have to be balanced. We need our passing game to be able to spread some teams out. But if our offensive line keeps blocking like theyre doing and Stanley keeps running along with our other backs then well have a chance. Anytime you can run the ball you have a chance. Only Blair can improve those odds. Shooting the J Jordan KroegerPhone: (386) 754-0421 jkr oeger@lakecityreporter. straight to his office after the game Friday night to start crunching the numbers, hoping theyd fall in his teams favor by nights end. They did once Pensacola Catholic fell to 5-5 on the season. It drives me insane, he said of the process. With the way games were breaking Friday night, the Indians needed Pace to pull off the victory or they would have been headed deep into the panhandle next week. Nothing is official until the FHSAAs selection show, which will be streamed live today at 11 a.m. on WFTV.com. It wasnt looking great for the Indians earlier in the night as all the teams they needed to win for a boost in points were losing Santa Fe, Bradford and Williston. Those three teams were dropping their point average unless they finished off Parker (3-7) and Pensacola Catholic lost. It looked as if Pensacola Catholic was primed for a win too, leading Pace 30-23 in the fourth before Pace rallied with two late touchdowns. Otherwise, Fort White would have been headed west despite a better record. Florida High and St. Josephs will receive the two bye weeks in the region as the top two seeds. Theres definitely a flaw (in the system) because the two teams we lost to are higher classification (Suwannee and Bradford), Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Florida High is good. Baldwin is good and theyve played some tough competition but I think you need to take into consideration when youre playing high-classification teams. St. Josephs played all small schools. They went undefeated and they were fortunate to get those schools to play them. We cant get them to play us so thats an unfair advantage so I think they need to reward us if we cant play the small schools. We had to play Suwannee, we had to play Bradford and then Terry Parker in the last game of the season a 5A school. But its still a win so weve just got to make do with what we get. Parker didnt make it easy for Fort White on Friday. It looked as if the Indians would pull away early on, with Maxwell scoring from three yards out in the first quarter and then from two yards away in the second. Fort White was driving again midway through the quarter at the Parker 46 but a bad snap went flying over the head of quarterback Dylan Blair and was scooped up by linebacker Damian Deleston, who went 35 yards the other way for a touchdown. For that play we needed three yards so when it went a little high I wasnt far enough back so it just went a little bit over my head, said Blair, who completed just six of 12 attempts for 91 yards and an interception. I shouldve caught it. The Braves missed the extra point but their defense quickly forced a three-and-out. Quarterback Desmond Brown then threw a sixyard touchdown pass to Tyrone Williams seven plays later to cut Fort Whites lead to 14-13. But the Indians defense was stellar the rest of the way, holding the Braves to just 149 yards of total offense for the night. That one drive we stopped playing sound football and they kind of got us a little bit but Im proud of our defense, Jackson said. Maxwell pushed the lead back to eight with a one-yard score with 31 seconds left in the first half before the Indians pulled away in the second half. Kameron Calhoun had a one-yard scoring run on Fort Whites first drive of the second half and backup quarterback Tyler Jefferson found the end zone on a keeper from 10 yards out early in the fourth quarter, The Indians finished with a team total of 253 rushing yards. We ate it up, Maxwell said. Fort White now heads into the postseason on a six-game winning streak. Weve got to come in and play football day in and day out, Maxwell said. Coach Jackson is a pretty great coach. He doesnt tell us wrong. When we play as a team we play great games. As long as we have a great playoff week of practice and stay in that playoff atmosphere, I feel like we can go pretty far.CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White running back Stanley Maxwell hits the hole Friday night. TIWAHE Continued From 1BBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Floridas lone bright spot after another lopsided loss to Missouri: It wont have to face Drew Lock again. Lock picked apart Floridas defense for the second straight year, throwing three touchdown passes to lead the Tigers to a 38-17 victory against the 13th-ranked Gators on Saturday Lock completed 24 of 32 passes for 250 yards, with scoring throws to Albert Okwuegbunam, Kam Scott and Emanuel Hall that stunned the Swamp. His best performance in league play this season came a week after a heartbreaking loss on the final play against Kentucky. These situations a lot of time in sports mirror how your life can go, said coach Barry Odom. Youre going to be faced with adversity. Youre going to be faced with hard times. This game was decided long before the ball was kicked off. Lock, a senior and projected first-round draft pick, was equally effective against Florida in a 45-16 victory last year. He will head to the NFL with six touchdowns passes and an interception in his final two games against the Gators. This feels really good, Lock said. Its hard to put into words. It was a different week for us. You kind of had that feeling theres no way you lose that football game (to Kentucky). I think after a loss like that, theres no way you can go in and lose a game. Theres no way I can feel any worse than I did last Saturday, so I wasnt going to let that happen again. And none of these guys were going to let that happen. That was our mindset coming in this week. Florida also was hoping to rebound after a 36-17 loss to Georgia eliminated it from contention in the SEC East. But the Gators came out flat and didnt find a spark until it was too late. Coach Dan Mullen benched starting quarterback Feleipe Franks late in the third quarter the home crowd cheered wildly and backup Kyle Trask promptly directed a 75-yard touchdown drive in which he converted two fourth downs. Trask found Josh Hammond in the end zone on the second one for a 7-yard score that made it 35-17. After the game, Mullen sounded like he would stick with Franks moving forward. Everybodys going to have some good days and bad days, Mullen said. Im certainly not here pointing the finger that he was terrible. And we didnt pull him because he was terrible. We pulled him cause the offense wasnt moving and we wanted to see if somebody else could get it done and put Kyle put in, not because of his individual, personal performance. Franks completed 7 of 22 passes for 84 yards. Trask was 10 of 18 for 126 yards. The Tigers (5-4, 1-4) led 21-10 at halftime and sealed their first SEC win in 2018 with three consecutive scoring drives in the third quarter. Mullen called the back-toback losses by a combined 40 points a reality check. Its a little bit of a reality check of where we are with the guys, Mullen said, pointing to consecutive wins against Mississippi State and LSU. If we come out and play really well as a team in all three phases, were good enough to play with anybody out there. If we dont, were not.Lock burns Florida again, Mizzou wins COLLEGE FOOTBALLBy AARON BEARDAssociated PressRALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina State corrected many of the problems that had plagued the Wolfpack during two straight losses, namely by getting off to a fast start and running the ball well. As for Florida State, there was no such strong response only a second straight lopsided loss that inched the Seminoles closer to the end of decades-long streaks of success. Freshman Ricky Person Jr. scored three touchdowns while Jakobi Meyers had a big receiving day to help the Wolfpack beat the Seminoles 47-28 on Saturday, making the Wolfpack bowl eligible for the fifth straight year. Meyers had nine catches for 125 yards and a score for the Wolfpack (6-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who scored the first 17 points and never looked back in a one-sided show. I just thought it was really good execution in a lot of ways, Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said. Doeren was right. The Wolfpack moved the chains against the nations 12th-ranked run defense (102.9 yards), avoided major mistakes and got reliable kicking production when drives stalled. Not that there were many, considering N.C. State had a season-high scoring output. The ground game certainly stood out. Person scored on 1and 4-yard runs in the first half after missing last weeks loss at No. 22 Syracuse due to injury. And Reggie Gallaspy II ran for a career-best 106 yards, part of a 177-yard output that surpassed the combined total from the losses to No. 2 Clemson followed by the Orange (172). It makes just everything a lot more fun, to be honest, as an offensive lineman, Wolfpack center Garrett Bradbury said. When you can just at will drive down the field running the ball, and they know its coming most of the time, its just a good feeling. FSUs James Blackman threw for a career-high 421 yards and four scores in starting for Deondre Francois, with two going to Tamorrion Terry. But it didnt stop the Seminoles (4-5, 2-5) from taking a fourth loss by at least 19 points this year. Weve got to learn to translate our effort and the way we work the sidelines to the football field, first-year FSU coach Willie Taggart said. Thats something we didnt do. THE TAKEAWAY FSU: Things couldnt have been worse in last weeks 59-10 home loss to No. 2 Clemson, a performance that had Taggart openly ques tioning his teams effort and whether some players quit. The Seminoles didnt play anywhere near well enough to win this one, either, including 16 penalties for 121 yards to continue their trend of being among the nations most frequently flagged teams. I love this football team, I love our guys, Taggart said. Theyre trying to do the things were asking them to do. ... Our guys know how to play football. Weve got to teach them how to win now. N.C. State: Put simply, it was a clean performance. The Wolfpack avoided turnovers, allowed no sacks, committed just two penalties through the first three quarters and answered any FSU push. Getting the 17-0 lead was big, too, after falling behind 14-0 at Clemson and 24-7 at Syracuse in the first quarter.NC State snaps skid, rolls past FSU B4

Marrone insists hes not trying to be a martyr, a shield or anything like that. Truth is hes protecting everyone: top executive Tom Coughlin, general manager Dave Caldwell, inconsistent quarterback Blake Bortles unavailable running back Leonard Fournette and dozens more underperforming players on an underachieving team. The Jaguars (3-5) have been one of the NFLs biggest busts in 2018, especially last month when they went 0-for-October and looked nothing like the team that advanced to the AFC championship game nine months earlier. There is a story out there about this team. It is an ugly story, said Marrone, who is counting on his team to regroup during its Week 9 bye. But the story hasnt ended. We can still control how this story reads. When we get away, we have to think long and hard about it. We have to come back and we have to figure out what the story is going to be on the 2018 team. Injuries are a big reason for the slide, especially with Fournette the teams offensive centerpiece missing six games because of a strained right hamstring. But Coughlin, Caldwell and Bortles deserve criticism. Coughlin designed an oldschool team to play in a pass-happy league, one in which running the ball is barely important and hiding a mediocre quarterback is next to impossible. The groundand-pound Jags want to control the clock, limit Bortles throws and play stout defense. It can work, but it usually needs everything to go right. Turnovers, dropped passes, defensive lapses, the Jaguars have seen those too often and arent built to handle much adversity or overcome double-digit deficits. It doesnt help that Jacksonville is getting so little from its rookie class and its free-agent crop. Coughlin and Caldwell were so confident they had a playoff team in place that they used the draft to prepare for 2019, adding several down-the-road replace ments for veteran starters. First-round pick and defensive lineman Taven Bryan has nine tackles in eight games. Secondround receiver DJ Chark has 12 catches for 159 yards to go along with a fumble and several costly drops. Third-round safety Ronnie Harrison has been the best of the bunch while playing mostly in certain defensive packages.Marrone takes blame for woeful Jags, shields obvious errors B6

8B SUNDA Y, NOVEMBER 4, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALLNext man up: Brown makes early impression BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia running back Jaelin Brown fights for extra yards last week at First Coast. By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comColumbias starting running back Kylen Callum has been battling a nagging ankle injury, but luckily for the Tigers, theres a freshman back waiting in the wings. Jaelin Brown has made most of his limited carries over the last couple weeks. The former middle school star tallied 47 yards on seven tries in Friday nights win over Bolles. Brown hasnt done anything exciting yet. But the rookie continues to show flashes of whats to come, as he did on an impressive 20-yard run during the second half. Brown has already begun earning the respect of teammates and coaches alike. I can assure you, No. 24 is going to be as good as any thats come through here, Columbia coach Brian Allen said of Brown. And its good that were able to feed him those reps with Kylens ankle injury. Skys the limit for that kid [if] he stays in the weight room and continues to develop. Brown was one of several players called up from junior varsity when the JV season ended a few weeks ago. Columbias next star running back recently got his first taste of the varsity life when backup running back Caleb Dixon suffered an injury in warm-ups last week at First Coast. With Callum in and out of the lineup, Dominique Jones and Brown tag-teamed duties in the backfield. It was the same story this week as Jones and Brown stepped up with Callum out, combining for 141 yards and a touchdown. As a kid growing up, I always wanted to play for Columbia, Brown said after the game. When one man goes down, another has to step up and I got my chance to shine Truly I give all the honor to God. Its all a blessing. Brown is expected to remain in a limited role for the rest of this season, but that hasnt stopped him from soaking up all the knowledge he can from Callum, who has one more season next year. its not his time yet, but it could come sooner than later. Brown, a cousin of Columbia rushing leader Ronald Timmons, may be the next great running back to don the purple and gold. Hes a 5-11 back, and what you see playing on Saturdays at the top programs, its that type of mold of a back, Allen added. Hes got the frame where hes going to be able to put on 185, 195 pounds by the time hes a junior or senior. Hes already tremendously talented now, hes starting to learn the game. It was the same thing even with Kylen at a young age, tremendous talent but lets understand the game. When you understand what linebackers and defensive linemen are supposed to be doing, you can take your time and it allows you to be that much more successful.Columbia freshman back has potential to be a special one. Jones punched in arguably his best outing of the year as he recorded two touchdowns for 116 receiving yards. It was only fitting on senior night in what was Jones final regular season home game of his high school career. Hes dynamic, Allen said of Jones, who was one of several suspended last week. I dont know if theres two other receivers like him and Marquez [Bell] side by side that are as dynamic as those two. And Jaden [Williams] and Bobby [Fulton] complement them. But the thing we have to do, within our system, is get it to them. Columbia (9-1) had some trouble igniting the offense early on against Bolles (6-4). After Dominique Jones scored on his first carry from 93 yards out, Bolles answered with a three-yard touchdown run by Jayden McCloud on the ensuing drive. The senior back tallied 79 yards in the first half but was left with one in the second half. Marlon Pollocks fumble recovery a few minutes later set up Columbias next scoring drive which ended on a 11-yard touchdown pass from Smith to Jones. Bolles kicker Jack Brady trimmed his teams deficit with two field goals, one from 33 yards out and another from 23 yards out, bringing Columbias lead to 14-13. The Tigers closed out the first half strong as Williams scored with under a minute left. A few untimely penalties and mental mistakes earlier in the half, though, kept Bolles in contention as Columbia entered halftime with a slim 21-13 advantage on Friday. I told the guys lets go out and finish, Allen said of his halftime speech. These guys had a long discussion [Thursday] with the group of seniors and what this means to them. This was their last regular season game, this is their last opportunity all those things are starting to kick in, becoming reality My conversation was go out and finish, and they did. Whether you look at it as ugly, not sharp whatever the case may be, we were able to get a finish [with] a 9-1 regular season, to get ready for postseason. Columbia extended its halftime lead when Smith connected with Bell for a 34-yard touchdown. Bolles responded later in the third with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Bryson Kirksey. Columbias defense continued to stifle Bolles rushing attack in the fourth while Jones put the game out of reach with a 42-yard touchdown reception. This effort [Friday] night wont be good enough further down the road, Allen said. We have to continue to make things crisp, sharpen this blade to where offense, defense and special teams are operating like theyre supposed to as an unit. Thats going to be the message as we continue to move forward. PLAYOFF PICTURE: Columbia is projected to face district rival Fletcher in the Class 7A regional quarterfinal next Friday night. Fletcher defeated Mandarin 27-20 in overtime this week. Columbia defeated Fletcher 21-20 on Oct. 19. Next weeks playoff matchups will be announced by the FHSAA via WFTV.com on Sunday. NINE WINS: Columbia captured its ninth win of the regular season Friday. This is the first time the school has accomplished this feat since 2015. The Tigers reached the state semifinal round and were also named district champs that season. INJURY REPORT: Columbia running back Kylen Callum reaggravated an ankle injury suffered a couple weeks ago. Right guard Darius Kimble also suffered a MCL injury during Fridays game. Both players are questionable to play next week.Photos by JEN CHASTEEN/Special to the ReporterColumbia safety Sirr Talbott tackles Bolles wide receiver Bryson Kirkey down the sideline during a kickoff return in the first half.

But what started out for Lenvil Dicks as a business selling plots of land has now blossomed. It now lists and sells homes after the company formed an affiliation with a national real estate agency a few years ago. That move proved to be a prudent decision. Dicks Realty, which does business as United Country Real Estate-Dicks Realty, is growing its business and its headquarters. Brad Dicks, the broker at Dicks Reality, who worked with his father, Lenvil, got his real estate license more than 25 years ago. Dicks Reality has been affiliated with United Country Real Estate since 2014. The company originated in 1967, making it the oldest real estate firm in Lake City, he said. We started out in 1967 next to a window tint shop location on US 90 and Lake Jeffery Road, and after that we moved to our 1286 US 90 location. And now having outgrown those digs, the company is relocating again. The main reason for moving is were expand ing. This is giving us more room for growth and agents. Were moving into a larger facility that will accommodate us better. The new office is located at 816 SW Main Boulevard.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 410, 2018 There was a buzz in the air during the 33rd edition of the Havana International Fair, Cubas weeklong commercial extravaganza. It was 2015, the year the United States and Cuba renewed diplomatic relations and U.S. companies were betting on new business opportunities on the island. But three years later, as the fair opened in Havana this week and Cubas dealings with the Trump administration are prickly, much of that enthusiasm has faded away. Dismal is how John Kavulich, president of the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council, describes both the level of interest by U.S. businesses in Cuba and the islands current investment climate. There continue to be some companies interested in doing things in Cuba, but for a country of 11 million people interest is nowhere near what it should be, he said. Cuban state media has reported about 16 U.S. firms have a presence at the 36th annual fair, which runs through Friday, but it appears that fewer than that have set up booths. Among the companies scheduled to participate is Innovative Immunotherapy Alliance, a joint venture recently set up by Buffalo-based Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and Havanas Center for Molecular Immunology to try to bring four Cuban cancer drugs to the U.S. market. Rodrigo Malmierca, Cubas minister of foreign trade and investment, said 2,500 foreign business executives, about 30 chambers of commerce and 60 nations are attending Fihav 2018 evidence, he said, that the world is with Cuba despite its problematic relationship with the United States. Among the largest exhibitors are Spain, China and Russia. In 2015, when more than 70 countries were represented at the fair, the Cuban economy was growing. Companies from around the world thought they should get into the Cuban market quickly, before the budding U.S.Cuba relationship would allow American companies to snap up all the best deals. U.S. exhibitors also were betting that with the rapprochement, the end of the trade embargo would only be a matter of time. But now the Cuban economy has stalled, the hostile rhetoric between Washington and Havana has escalated, Trump administration rules designed to limit business dealings with Cuban military enterprises have made U.S. companies wary and the Cuban pace for approving joint ventures and management contracts has been glacial. Still, in an interview with Cubadebate, a Cuban news website, Malmierca emphasized that foreign investment has become an economic necessity for Cuba. We arent a country that is rich in natural resources nor is there sufficient national savings to make the investments our social and economic development requires, he said. Miguel Diaz-Canel, who succeeded Raul Castro as president of Cubas Council of Ministers and Council of State, sounded a similar note as he cut the ribbon to open the fair Monday. The ratifies international interest in trading with Cuba despite the blockade (the term Cuba uses for the embargo), he said. But some commentators who responded to the Cubadebate interview questioned the slow pace of efforts to attract investment as well as Cubas reluctance to allow Cubans themselves to invest in some of the projects that are being offered to foreign investors. Each year at the fair, Cuba presents its new investment portfolio. Last year, it included 465 projects for which it was seeking $10.7 billion in investment. We are selling our country in pieces, one commentator said. Relatively few agreements have been reached with U.S. companies and most of the interest has come from the airline, cruise and telecommunications industries. In one unusual deal, a Hialeahbased company imported two small shipments of charcoal produced by a private Cuban cooperative. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a longtime advocate of lifting the embargo, brought a delegation of about 40 representatives of companies in 2015 that were eager to meet Cuban officials and make deals. The chamber also launched its U.S.-Cuba Business Council that year. Kavulich said that both the Obama administration and the Castro government could have and should have done more to cement the business relationship while there was the political will to do so. Even though many Obama-era regulations continue and the Trump administration also has allowed deals licensed under Obama to proceed, Cuba, by not taking advantage of the continued opportunities also has contributed to diminished interest by U.S. companies that are not seeing that Cuba wants them to have a role in its economy, Kavulich said.

Since then, Ive noticed our relationship seems to be strained. They will sometimes make remarks about money when Im around, and its obvious the things they say are aimed at me. I dont want things to be like this between us during the holidays. I have taken steps to become more financially responsible, like watching my spending and living on a budget, so how can I address this issue with them? Robbie Dear Robbie, Im sorry youre going through this, but I hope everyone has learned a valuable lesson. Its OK to give money sometimes, as long as youre not enabling irresponsible behavior in the process. But loaning money to or borrowing from friends and relatives will often lead to bruised feelings. If you paid them back, especially if it took longer than expected or agreed upon, theres not much you can do if they choose to hold a grudge. With some folks, it just takes a little while for those kinds of things to heal. And considering its your parents, my guess is theyll become more and more forgiving with time. Until then, maybe you could look for opportunities during conversations with them to mention your new approach to finances. Something as simple as referring your budget, or getting excited about how much you were able to put into savings from your last paycheck, might get their attention. A few subtle hints that youre actively working to gain control of your finances might go a long way with your parents. If they realize youre starting to handle your money more wisely, Ill bet youd start to notice a real difference in their attitudes!

Harvey Dr. Rameek McNair Accepting New Patients WE NOW CARRY AeroShell Hulaween event was a great successThe Spirit of Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak had a tremendous weekend October 24-28, with the sold-out, 20,000-plus attendees at Suwannee Hulaween Music Festival. Bands from around the world and across the musical spectrum descended on North Florida and brought fans from all parts of the globe into Suwannee County. It is a testament to the success of the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park that world renowned artists such as Jamiroquai, whose tour has included stops from Azerbaijan to Zurich, want to play at the venue, located in a rural farming community in North Florida. Its sixth year featured eclectic rock, world bluegrass-based acts, electronic artists like Odesza, and European artists Jamiroquai and Tipper. The line-up also included soulful stars Janelle Monae and the Revivalists, along with jazz acts Medeski, Martin & Wood, and Galactic. In addition, Hulaween gave several Floridaand Southern Georgia-based acts the opportunity to shine in front of one of the most wide-ranging audiences anywhere. Miamis Roosevelt Collier, Melody Trucks, the Apple Butter Express, and others were featured along with festival headliners. During Hulaween, Suwannee County stores, hotels, restaurants, gas stations and other retailers saw a huge increase in business, as thousands converged on the county to purchase supplies and participate in one of the most revered Halloween music festivals in the US. Suwannee Hulaween has a profound financial impact on the local economy with the festival bringing thousands of concert-goers in for a weekend. This influx of visitors packs a powerful financial punch felt by not only large department stores but mom and pop businesses as well. Suwannee Hulaween also creates thousands of temporary jobs and brings millions of dollars into the local economy. An economic impact article in 2015 following the third Suwannee Hulaween estimated the economic impact at more than $10 million. Three years later it has likely quadrupled, according to some estimates. Restaurants, hotel managers and convenience stores prepare for Hulaween months beforehand, hiring part-time employees, stocking their stores and extending business hours. At Spirit of the Suwannee, temporary employees include a large number of security staff, those who direct traffic, provide fire and emergency care, gate guards, escorts with golf carts to get attendees where they need to be, whether they are healthy or handicapped, and many other temporary positions. Hulaween also partici pates in several charity initiatives as well as giving local nonprofits numerous fundraising and volunteer opportunities. These organizations volunteer their time at Hulaween in exchange for a fee paid to the club. The local clubs then use that money to provide community needs such as scholarships and special projects. Its a win-win opportunity for everyone. Each year at Suwannee Hulaween, Conscious Alliance (CA) volunteers set up a booth and provide a large commemorative festival poster in exchange for canned goods and nonperishable food items donated on the last day of twhe festival to Suwannee Countys Love INC. The poster artist donates the drawing and CA handles the printing. The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park is located 4.5 miles south of Interstate 75 and 4.5 miles north of Interstate 10 at the Suwannee River off US 129 at 3076 95th Drive in Live Oak, Fla. CONTRIBUTEDOdesza, seen here performing at the Suwannee Hulaween Music Festival, is a well-know electronic twosome, one of several globaltrotting musical acts to perform at the music park late last month. Suwannee festival made a huge economic impact.
4C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 410, 2018 Just when you think the red flags relating to a scam should be pretty clear, you hear more troubling reports when it comes to sweepstakes and gift cards. All the buzz about the Mega Millions jackpot and the one winning ticket sold in South Carolina that captured a prize worth nearly $1.6 billion could trigger even more related scams, like one that hit one woman in Troy, Mich. A letter arrived in the mail this year stating that she had won $750,000 in what was called The Cash is King Super Sweepstakes Drawing. The wording was odd. But the prize was so amazing. After receiving the letter, she began receiving phone calls, demanding that she send money orders as collateral, according to police. Supposedly, the Award Notification Commission was unable to contact her and now the matter was turned over to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. She got pressured into sending seven money orders totaling $6,750 to an address in Miami. And the calls continued, including phone calls from someone who claimed to be a Tim Perkins who was trying to extort even more money from her. The scamming stopped when the victim talked with her daughter, who realized that her mother was being ripped off. Whats a big sign of a sweepstakes scam? The catch: You must send money for taxes_or buy some products before receiving that incredible sweepstakes or lottery prize. The result: You only lose money, you dont win anything. Nearly half a million people reported some sort of lottery or sweepstakes-related fraud to enforcement agencies in the United States and Canada in the past three years. Reported losses totaled $117 million in 2017, according to a Better Business Bureau report. The actual number of victims and losses is probably much larger because many victims are too embarrassed to report a scam, according to experts. Schemes vary. Scammers can reach out by direct mail, social media, phone calls, text messages and smartphone pop-ups. Many times, the victims are seniors who may have lost a loved one, just gone through a divorce, lost a job or experienced some other hardship. Theyre hoping that somehow their luck has changed. Some con artists even claim to be connected with the established Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. Other victims may be told that they must pay transfer fees to get their winnings sent to the United States from Jamaica. In many cases, callers may say you have to go out and buy gift cards to pay for fees or other charges if you want to collect a prize. Last year, 2,820 people sweepstakes and lottery scams to Better Business Bureau Scam Tracker, an online tool for tracking scams. The median loss was $500. The most frequent method of payment was wire transfer. But scammers are frequently asking for gift cards now. This year, for example, impostors who claimed to be from Publishers Clearing House told a potential victim that he won a $25,000 prize. But the caller wanted the consumer to pay $100 upfront to collect the prize. The consumer realized it was a scam. Another consumer claimed that a male caller told him he had won $4 million. The consumer only had to call another number to pay processing fees. The consumer realized it was a scam. Some tips from the Better Business Bureau: Never send money or buy gift cards to cover taxes or other fees to collect a prize. Be extremely careful of social media. The FBIs Internet Crime Complaint Center says about one-third of the complaints it receives about sweepstakes and lottery fraud occur over social media. Many victims are contacted through Facebook. An important point to remember: If you end up caught by one scam, you could end up in a database used by fraudsters and end up receiving more cold-call solicitations. Tribune News Service Dunn urges Secretary Mattis to rebuild Tyndall US Congressman Neal Dunn, who represents the southern portion of Columbia County, led the Florida delegation in urging Defense Secretary James Mattis to rapidly rebuild Tyndall Air Force Base. Tyndall AFB was critically damaged by Hurricane Michael on October 10. President Donald Trump has committed to rebuilding the base and several members of congressional leadership have vowed to work with the Air Force to immediately repair critical infrastructure. In a letter to Mattis, the delegates write: As the Air Force conducts its damage assessment, we request consistent, immediate, and detailed communication of the funding and support needed to repair infrastructure, restore operations and provide for local service members, civilians and their families. Working together, Tyndall will be rebuilt and return stronger than ever, allowing its tenant units to resume their missions from one of the premier Air Force Bases in the world. All House members of the Florida delegation signed the letter, as well as senators Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson. During a campaign stop in support of gubernatorial candidate on DeSantis, Vice President Mike Pence pledged to rebuild Tyndall in its entirety. The air base suffered catastrophic damage with roofs torn from airplane hangars and cars tossed around. The base is home to the nations 325th Fighter Wing. More than 3,600 men and women are stationed there. From staff reports DREAMSTIME /TNSGift cards are almost as good as cash for scammers. Anyone who demands payment by gift card is always a scammer, according to the FTC.Beware of hurricane-damaged cars for saleThe effects of a hurricane can be felt long after the winds and the rains die down. Hurricanes Irma in Florida and Harvey in Texas last year left behind a large number of flood-damaged vehicles that are now appearing with for sale signs. A study published in the Carfax web pages for used vehicles shows there are nearly 500,000 such vehi cles on the streets. New York reported the second-highest number of water-damaged cars with 15,607, followed by Miami with 17,110, Philadelphia with 14,869 and Dallas-Fort Worth with 12,258. Carfax also estimated that the floods generated by Hurricane Florence on its path through South and North Carolina damaged 107,000 vehicles. Flood-damaged vehicles may have mechanical, electrical and safety problems because their antilock brake systems may not work properly. Damaged airbags may not deploy. Humidity and bacteria inside the car may also generate respiratory and other health issues for drivers and passengers. Carfax offers the following recommendations for detecting water-damaged vehicles: Close the car windows to check for a musty odor that might be caused by dampness. Be wary of cars that smell too nice. A scent may be used to mask musty odors. Look for water stains or replaced sections in the upholstery and rugs. Better yet, lift the rugs and look. Check the trunk and glove compartment for signs of flooding. Watch for signs of corrosion on metal parts. Look under the hood for leaves or debris in suspicious places. Check the oil. A single drop of water in it is a sign of serious mechanical problems. Check the air filter for signs that the paper was wet at some point. Cloudy headlights or instrument gauges can be signs that the vehicle was under water. When you test drive the car, keep an eye on the electrical system, which can be damaged in a flood. Take the car to a mechanic for a second opinion. Mechanics can perform more detailed inspections for repairs that were designed to hide water damage. Use a car dealership that is well established in your community. Such dealers will not risk their reputations by selling water-damaged vehicles. Check the vehicles history on websites such as AutoCheck, Carfax Vehicle History Report or VehicleHistory.com. Be direct. Ask if the vehicle was damaged by water, and ask the seller to put the answer in writing. Read the vehicles title carefully. If the words flood or salvage shows up, dont buy it.

Straight from El Paso to the lawn of a downtown law firm overlooking Lake DeSoto, the raging bull stopped here. Linnie Jordan suggested to her husband, longtime Lake City attorney, Bob Jordan, that use the new addition to his office lawn to coin the motto, the bull stops here. It would a fitting phrase for the new pitch-black, 350pound aluminum yard-art installation at Jordan Law Firm PLLC Attorneys at Law, off Lake DeSoto Circle. Bob Jordan said he took the high road and decided against associating anything off-putting with Fernando, the name he gave the lifesize statue. Visitors to Lake DeSoto have taken noticed of the bull, which has been at Jordans office for about two weeks. Jordan said hes seen walkers stop by and snap a selfie with Fernando, and families have hoisted children atop the furious facsimile. All of which, Jordan said he doesnt mind as long as safety is their first consideration. Jordan is a medical malpractice attorney whos practiced in the historical building since 1987. Two weeks marks his 42nd anniversary practicing law in Lake City. This bull came from Mexico by way of El Paso, Jordan said Friday. It was a sixth-month process to have the statue shipped, and it took a few days to have it installed. Now its permanently hoisted atop deep concrete tiers to prevent it toppling in wind, or, as Jordan said, to deter anyone who might consider taking it. Hes like the Wall Street Bull, Jordan said. Its one of those things, I thought this is neat. Its visually attractive. The bull also harkens back to Jordans days as a cattle owner with nearly 900 head of beef cattle on land in Columbia County. Now he said hes changed to timber. You dont have to chase them, Jordan said. As for Fernando, he said he imagined the statue represented more of an idealized bull than any specific breed and resembled one from the bull-fights of Spain. Imagine this guy coming at you, Jordan said.Black bull gracing the lawn of local law office
Weve officially entered soup seasonDuring my 37 years with the VA I lived in 12 different locations. Miami was the only warm one. The rest of the cities had snow, ice and freezing temperatures to deal with. These were real winters when a brrrrring cold day meant I stayed home. You would usually find something bubbling on my stove. It might be a pot of soup or beef stew or chili or spaghetti or pot roast. You get the picture. Since we had our first below 50 degree day last week, I immediately got in the mood for soup. Most of these recipes Ive shared in years past but I have new readers, ones who didnt keep the recipes or ones who kept them and lost them. Whatever, Im sharing again cause they are all tried and truly delicious. Hopefully, next cold snap and one of these recipes will appeal to you and get you back in the kitchen with your own bubbling pot. Beer Cheese Soup 4 chicken bouillon cubes 3 cups water 1 Can of beer 1 cup diced celery 1 cup diced onion 4 cups cubed potatoes 1 cup diced carrots 1 can cream of celery soup 1 can cream of chicken soup 16 oz Velveeta cheese Cook the bouillon cubes, water, beer, celery and onion covered forabout 20 minutes. Add the potatoes and carrots and cook until tender. Add the canned soups and Velveeta cheese and heat on low until cheese is melted and the soup is piping hot. Thanks Sharon Blanton for sharing this keeper.I think the reason I dont venture into trying new soup recipes is because I love my tried and true favorites. So, when I want soup my favorites are the ones that come to mind. I guess my most requested soup is the Corn-Sausage soup. Kimberlynne says it is her favorite. My former Taste Buddie, Mary Kay Rutan, introduced this one to me probably 15 years ago. It is always a hit, especially with any man that has ever eaten a bowl of it. Its a hearty concoction and Mary Kay and I have stream lined it so thats its probably the easiest and quickest soup to prepare Corn and Sausage Soup2 lbs. bulk sausage (1 hot and 1 regular: Jimmy Dean is my choice) 1 large onion, chopped or 1 (10 oz) pkg of frozen chopped Onion/peppers/celery 2 potatoes, bite size Salt & pepper to taste 1 tsp. basil 2 cup of water 1 17oz can of cream corn 1 16 oz can of whole kernel corn 1 12 oz can evaporated milk Brown sausage in a large pot or Dutch oven, drain and set aside. Using same pot, saute onions and then add browned sausage, salt, pepper, basil and water. Simmer for 15 minutes Add potatoes, corn and milk. Bring to a boil then turn to simmer. Simmer for about 30 minutes. Note: Dont put lid on this or potatoes become too mushy. I cant have a column about soup and not share my mothers awesome Vegetable soup. I think what makes it unique is the can of tomato soup that you start with. You get a slight sweet taste and it is just perfect. Every summer I go to K.C.s and buy fresh okra to freeze just TASTE BUDDIES Genie NormanTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.comBeer Cheese Soup Miss Allines Vegetable Soup Corn muffins with cheddar cheesePhotos by GENIE NORMAN/Lake City Reporter S oO U pP continued on 4D Waitresss faux pas doesnt ruin good meal in N.M.The road to Roswell, N.M, is the longest road to nowhere. Seriously, we drove for miles without seeing anything but rolling hills, barren desert and scrub bushes. Finally, we saw a ranch with sheep, lots of sheep. Then some cattle, and a couple of horses. The cows dotted one side of the road with black and the sheep on the other side with white. We saw trains, trains and more trains. Apparently, the small town of Vaughn, N.M., is the crossroads of two of the states railroad lines; Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific. As we got closer we got to Roswell, we saw two jet planes in the blue skies, apparently from the base nearby. I missed the turn off for the bypass road into town, and we ended up cutting through the residential area, where they had a tremendous amount of new construction roads and entire subdivisions popping up. Our stop here was the Pecos Flavors Winery & Bistro. Cant think of a better pit stop than one that includes food and wine. We ordered sandwiches to eat with our wine tasting. Sue got a Lincoln, which was smoked turkey, Havarti, avocado and a green chili jelly on grilled focaccia bread. I got the Brinkman, which was a green chili brisket and Monterey jack on a brinkman bun, which I never heard of. They were to die for. So much fresh and local flavors popping in every bite. Back at the bar, your tasting options were for three 1 oz. pours or three half glasses. I think you already know which one we chose. We selected a Gruet bubbles (brut), a Chardonnay and a pinot noir. We drink and we buy, that explains the other items we purchased in their shop at the winery. Oh, and they also have local beers. I really wanted to try the Alien Amber Ale, but it wasnt on tap, so a six pack is in the car now, too. After arriving in Carlsbad, New Mexico, we chose to go to Yellow Brix for dinner. Its a local restaurant in an historic yellow-brick house that was completed in 1928 by Mr. Albert Hendricks, a clothier who owned a retail store on Canyon Street. Not only did we research it online in advance, it was also a hotel recommendation. We ordered wine, a meatloaf dinner, crab cakes and ahi tuna. There was a nice cool breeze as we sat outside under the lights on their patio. We enjoyed a salad, the crab cake and their homemade chicken tortilla soup before our entrees came out. Then the unthinkable happened. My seared tuna was approaching the table and before it could be served, the cup of soy sauce slid off the plate and splattered all over my lap (OK, so pretty much from head to toe). How can such a small cup make such a big mess? It was all over the front of my dress, in my shoes, on my watch and up my left arm. Ugh! I think the waitress felt worse than I did. After attempting to clean myself up and eat my tuna, the manager came out offering to pay for dry cleaning and gave me a card with his direct number. They also comped the tuna and my glass of wine. The accident was handled appropriately, but the kicker was our conversation as we got back into the car. When we first picked up the rental, I noticed a spot on the steering wheel that looked like a coffee stain. We cleaned it off during our initial drive this morning. However, when we got back into the car, Sue said, Someone really must have spilled coffee in here because now I smell it. I quickly replied, No, thats soy sauce that I am now wearing!TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City. Contact her at email@example.com

How others perceive you will lead to new friendships as well as the chance to start a partnership. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take nothing and no one for granted. Be willing to do your part and to share responsibilities. Your input will speak volumes about who you are and what you stand for. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Participate and share with those who have similar likes and dislikes. You will develop a rapport with someone who has something to offer you. Physical fitness or challenges will lead to a healthy lifestyle. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your emotions in check when dealing with family matters. Personal change can be gratifying. Update your image and appearance, and youll receive compliments that will help build confidence. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Taking on too much will lead to exhaustion or financial setbacks. Weigh the pros and cons before you agree to help others. Stick close to home and focus on nurturing an important relationship and taking care of domestic concerns. Romance is highlighted. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Consider the possibilities and decide how best to incorporate positive change into your life. Sign up for an interesting course or attend a reunion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Share your feelings and find out exactly where you stand. What you discover is that truth can be liberating and can help you put who you are and what you want first and foremost. Love is in the stars. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont let anyone make you feel guilty. You are best to put your time into whatever will improve your life, not someone elses. Offer suggestions, but when it comes down to the labor involved, focus on yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Live life your way. Being true to yourself and your beliefs will make it easier to attract someone who shares your values. Whether you are looking for a friend, lover or someone to collaborate with professionally, honesty is the best policy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont limit what you can do because you are afraid of what others might think.

Live within your means and focus on whats important to you; youll have no regrets as your day unfolds. Personal improvements, a little romantic interaction and financial gains should be your priorities. 5 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont mix emotions and money. Concentrate on building equity and stabilizing your financial future. Dont let anyone talk you into being extravagant or living excessively. Walk away from those exhibiting bad habits and enticing you to follow suit. DEAR ABBY: I am a 22-year-old, single male who recently graduated from college. I received lots of congratulations in person and by phone, text and social media. One of them came from a woman my age named Bree. When I responded, I didnt recall ever having friended her but learned shes a cousin who lives back east. Apparently, her mother and my father are siblings. When I asked my father about it, he got very defensive and told me whoever it was I spoke to is a complete and total liar. Ordinarily, I might have agreed, but his reaction tells me theres a lot more to this. I want to find out more. Neither of my parents will say a word about it, and I dont know why. When I told them I plan to travel to the East Coast and meet Bree, I was told I may not be welcomed back if I do! This makes me wonder what horrible thing could have happened that would make a father consider disowning his son. Because my father wont share the truth with me, I am left with only this option. Pursue this, find part of my family I never knew existed and learn something, but lose the family I have and regret it forever. Any insight? LOST COUSIN IN CALIFORNIA DEAR COUSIN: I can offer insight, but not a roadmap for how to proceed. Family secrets can be devastating. That your father reacted so strongly shows how threatened he is that you might uncover something he isnt proud of. As a college graduate, I am sure you are familiar with the myth about Pandoras box. While you may not lose your father if you delve into this, you may find that when you do, your image of him may be shattered. If you really feel you will regret it forever if you do, then make sure you are prepared for the possible penalty. DEAR ABBY: My only son and his wife had their first baby recently. My daughterin-law treats me terribly. Shes hypercritical of what I do or say. I am usually so blindsided I dont have much of a reply. When I attempted to help out with the laundry, cleaning, etc., I was met with more criticism and advice on how to perform those tasks. She also says I dont know how to properly hold an infant. Abby, I have raised five grown children! How can I change this situation? PUNISHED FOR WANTING TO HELP DEAR PUNISHED: Remind your daughter-in-law that youre just trying to help her. She may not have been critical of your efforts as much as trying to convey how she would like those tasks done. However, if you cant please her, take the hint and stop offering. She may be a nervous new mother, but she appears to have gone overboard to the point of being tactless. The next time she tells you you dont know how to hold a baby, point out that you managed to raise five of them safely to adulthood. Then back off and give her some space because she may be hormonal and need it. Family secret ripping at father-son relationshipDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

4D SUNDA Y, NOVEMBER 4, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER so I can add it to Mamas soup. Y ou can add any kind of vegetable that you like. I just use the ones that Mama used. Miss Allines Vegetable Soup Â 1 left-over ham bone or beef stew cubes 1 can diced tomatoes 1 large onion, chopped 2 large carrots, scraped and sliced 1 can Campbells tomato soup 1 cup diced celery 1 cup fresh (or frozen) sliced okra cabbage cut into small pieces 1 small can of corn or 1 cup of fresh corn 2 med. potatoes cut in small pieces Salt and pepper to taste. Place ham or beef in large pot. Cover the meat with water (about 5 cups) and the can of tomato soup and diced tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and add onion, carrots and celery. Let simmer until veggies are soft and tender. Add corn, okra, potatoes and cabbage and continue simmering until all vegetables are tender. Before serving, if I use ham, I cut it into small pieces and return to soup Â Sharon Blanton shared another soup recipe, Chicken Gnocchi, and it is almost an identical taste replica of the Chicken & Gnocchi soup you get at Olive Garden. Gnocchi are small potato dumplings that are available in most grocery stores usually in the pasta section or you can make your own like Mary Kay does. Chicken Gnocchi Soup1 lb Boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 pieces 1/3 cup butter, divided 1 small onion, chopped 1 medium carrot, shredded 1 celery rib, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/3 cup plain flour 3 1/2 cups 2% milk 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream 1 T. chicken bouillon granules (3 cubes) 1/4 t. pepper 1 (16 oz.) package of gnocchi 1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach (I used more) 1. Â Brown chicken in 2 T. butter. Remove from pot. Saut the onion, carrot, celery and garlic in remaining butter until tender. 2. Â Whisk in flour until blended; gradua lly stir in milk, cream, bouillon and pepper. Â Bring to a boil. Â Reduce heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. 3. Â Add the gnocchi and spinach; cook for 3-4 minutes Â Add the chicken. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through (do not boil). Â Â Â Â Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts)I think soup needs corn bread to make it the perfect meal and I havent found a better one than my Mamas cornbread recipe. I guarantee that its better than Jiffy. Miss Allines Cornbread BEAT: 1 EGG 1 CUPS BUTTERMILK or milk 1 TBS SUGAR 1 CUP CORNMEAL CUP FLOUR 2 HEAPING TSPS BAKING POWDER 1 TSP SALT 4 Tbs. COOKING OIL Pour mixture into oiled pan or muffin tin and cook at 420 degrees for approximately 25 minutes. Variation: Fill muffin pan half way, sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and then fill with rest of batter and bake. Cheesey muffins are really good with chili or soup. I toast a leftover muffin the next day and drizzle with syrup for my breakfast. Trust me, the hardest part of this, is deciding which soup to try first.
