By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comGlass shards form a sheet on the ground as Benny Smollack sifts through what the crew unearthed in the past couple weeks. A miracle cure purchased at the drug store that used to be down the street, old soda bottles from back when Lake City still had a Coca-Cola plant theres no telling what other secrets lie below the Blanche Hotel. What is that? Smollack says, picking up a rectangular piece of debris. It says Johnsons Chill and Fever Tonic. Havent seen this before. The dirt-covered bottle fragment was one of several discoveries made in the last month by crews working on the Blanche Hotel renovation project in downtown Lake City. I feel like Im eventually going to find gold, Smollack joked. In a gutted portion of the Blanches interior, Smollack navigated a network of trenches in the bare ground Friday afternoon. With little light guiding his way, he stopped at one of several piles of glass, wood and metal fragments, among other assorted materials. There were bits of an old bowl and a piece of metal Smollack concluded might have been part of a coat hanger. Over on another side of the trench, he picked out a piece of burnt wood, wondering if it was all thats left of a building destroyed in a fire. If it wasnt for them adding the sewer down here, we never wouldve found any of that, he said. The recent wave of archaeological finds started with the discovery of a medicine bottle, said Smollack, part of a plumbing crew. A label on the side indicates it came from Youngs Drug Store in Lake City.

Dead is Andrew Powell III, the release said. At about 1:57 a.m. Saturday, a 2008 Ford F-350 pickup driven by John Ray Beasley, 29, of Lake City, was traveling north on 441, approaching the intersection of County Road 240, when it left roadway onto the shoulder, striking multiple objects, including a culvert, which caused the truck to overturn and land on its roof. Beasley suffered serious injuries and is being treated at Shands UF Health at the University of Florida. Neither the driver nor the passenger were wearing seat belts. It is not known if alcohol was a factor, the release said. MORE INSIDEBlanche renovation update, 1D.Photos by CARL MCKINNEY/LAKE CITY REPORTER; headline graphic courtesy TRACY E.

BLANCHE continued on 3A Search is on for armed robberFrom staff reportsThe Columbia County Sheriffs Office is asking the communitys help in apprehending a suspect believed to have robbed a local S&S convenience store on Thanksgiving. On Thursday at about 7:47 p.m., sheriffs office deputies responded to a call at the S&S store on North Highway 441 and Deer Run Preserves about an armed robbery. Despite responding within a minute to the call, the suspect had fled the scene. Some of the bones found at the site are pictured above. They have been cut cleanly, likely the result of a butchers blade. Smollack, a plumbing crew member for the Blanche Hotel renovation project, tries to figure out what this metal object is or used to be. He guessed the item, one of many artifacts unearthed in recent weeks, was a coat hanger. ROBBER continued on 2A A3

Bargain hunting on Black Friday ROBERT BRIDGES/Lake City ReporterFriday morning rolloverThe driver of this 2006 GMC, pictured, escaped injury when the pickup left the highway on UU S 441 south F riday around 8 a.m. and overturned in a drainage ditch just south of Bascom NN or ris Drive. The towing company that took the vehicle away said the likely cause of the crash was a broken tie rod. According to witnesses, at the time of the robbery there were two clerks and a customer in the store. The suspect pointed a handgun at the cashier and demanded money from the register. The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured during the robbery. CCSO employed a K-9 team, which was able to track the suspect to a location a short distance from the store. But deputies believe the suspect fled in a vehicle. The suspect was described to deputies as a black male wearing a dark hoodie, dark shorts, white shoes and a black mask that covered most of his face. CCSO detectives are asking for anyone who may have information on this robbery to contact them at 386-752-7015 or to call Crime Stoppers of Columbia County at 386754-7099, where you can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward.

A crew member found a Coke bottle from 1912. The soda company used to run a bottling plant in Lake City. But the most puzzling discovery was two sets of bones, one of which was dug up where an elevator is to be installed. Eric Glynn, a fire suppression system subcontractor who found one of the sets, guessed the bones came from a butchers shop thats long since closed its doors. Look at that, its cut in half almost perfectly, Glynn said. Im sure back in the day, they killed everything fresh. This wasnt the first wave of discoveries. About a year ago, when the project was just getting off the ground, a site manager found a Florida license plate from 1974 and an unrelated letter. A portion of the letter reads: On my honor, I promise to do my best: To serve my God, the Queen and my country, and to live by the guide law. It appears to have originated from a London-based group of the Girl Guides, a predecessor to the Girl Scouts. Based on his research, Smollack estimated the letter dates back to some time between 1910 and the 1930. Smollack has lived in Lake City since he was about 2. As a local native, the trinkets unearthed are an opportunity to learn more about his towns history, he said. When he first started working on the Blanche project in May, he viewed it like any other job. It wasnt cool until we started finding these things, he said. The anticipation of finding old stuff has made it a lot more exciting coming into work every day. What are we going to find next? Smollack kept the Youngs Drug Store bottle he found and plans to offer it to the Lake City-Columbia County Historical Museum unless he can find a descendent of the drug stores owner. Im sure it would be a nice souvenir for them, he said. There may be another option, though. Dennille Decker, marketing director for IDP, the project developer, said Saturday they would like to collect items found at the site and put them on display in the lobby once renovations are complete. Decker said the discoveries underscore the historical value of the Blanche and the renovation project. The Blanches history is Lake Citys history, she said. Every bottle or artifact that is found is interesting because it tells a story of who we once were as a community. I spend a lot of time walking around the Blanche and envisioning what life was like here in 100 years ago. These items that are uncovered help piece that story together. BLANCHEContinued From 1A CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterThree medicine bottles unearthed thus far during the Blanche Hotel renovation project.
To the Editor: The dust is settling. The recounts are over. The national media has vilified our entire state. But, what really happened? 1. Florida had three statewide races with razor thin majorities on election night. 2. Our state laws required an automatic recount. It was done. (Yes, there was a glitch when some counties did not report on time; our state laws provided for that contingency.) Except, for some political arguing and lawsuits (that did not change a thing) our system worked. 3. In two of the races, our state laws required an additional manual recount (the over/under count). That was done. Again, even in the face of political posturing, media, etc., our system worked. 4. The results were reported; all candidates have either declared victory or conceded. It appears that we learned our lesson in 2000. Apparently, we learned it well. Despite there being eight million votes and vote margins of merely hundreds (in one race) or thousands (in another race), our election process worked in the face of political pressure; it worked in the face of numerous lawsuits; it worked despite adverse national media pressure. In short, OUR SYSTEM WORKED! Fred Koberlein Sr. Lake City OPINION Todays elementary school kids probably ask Santa Claus to bring them computers, Ipods, and Xboxes for Christmas. But what do you think the young Lake City kids of the 1940s wanted? The Lake City Reporters Dear Santa letters of some 60 years ago gives you a clue. Marie Rozelle Kennon: A watch, riding trousers, and boots. Take your other toys to kids who wont get anything for Christmas. James Montgomery: A teddy bear, a gun, a watch, a coloring book, a pony, and a toy truck. Lenvil Dicks: A .410 gauge shotgun and a .10 gauge shotgun that will shoot both two and one half inch and three inch shells. I have been good at home and at school. Nita Martin Rawleigh: A Jeanette McDonald doll with curly hair, a Bible with my name on it, and a ring. Buy the ring at Soldwells, size four and a half. Nettie Black Ozaki: A bow and arrow, a BB gun, a pretty doll with curly hair and sleepy eyes, and a pretty picture for my Mother. Wrap it in pretty paper. Larry Douglass: A BB gun and four packs of BBs, a big, red wagon, and a heap of candy. My brother Jimmy is big enough for you to come see him, too. Patsy Ruth Harris: I am a singing girl so bring me a piano, a rubber doll, and a cut-out book. Remember my grandmother in Lake Placid. Bobby George: A doctor set, cowboy suit, and a log cabin. I will leave the front door open and a cup of coffee for you. Mary Virginia Ives McRae: A stove, a Betsy Wetsy doll with five pretty dresses, a tea set, and a frying pan. Eddie Norris: A bicycle and a pearl handle pistol. Remember, I am your little friend. Pat Weeks Arnold: A scooter, a doll bed, and a doll carriage. Please bring my baby sister Carol a new cry baby doll. Bobby Kinard: A football for the boys and a dodge ball for the girls. We need them to play games at recess at school. Jo Pearl Ives Cason: A dolly, a tea set, and lots of pretty things. Remember, Santa, I am your little girl. Roscoe Mansfield: Skates, a football, and an electric train. Santa, I love you very much. Verdie Buie Frampton: An iron, an ironing board, a wash tub, a doll, and a baton to twirl. While Santa was shopping for these kids, the kids parents may have been shopping for themselves. They could have bought a Simmons Beauty Rest mattress at Cox Furniture for $39.50, a new Coleman oil heater at Peoples Hardware for $29.95, or a new Dodge car from Sanders-Allison for $825.

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 Morris Williams The odd story of Deborah PittmanYou wouldnt think it could happen here, a small but growing town where folks generally know their neighbors, even in the most remote parts of the county, whether they consider them close or not. For that matter you wouldnt think it quite so likely to happen anywhere these days, in the age of social media and near-total electronic interconnectedness. But it did. A McAlpin woman went missing three years ago and nobody noticed. Let the strange case of Deborah Jamie Pittman, also known as Deborah Williams Pittman, be a lesson to us all. Ms. Pittman did not fit the stereotype of someone who goes missing and isnt missed. She was not elderly at 58 and had no apparent physical ailments that would keep her from getting out from time to time. Still, it happened. If the folks who bought her home after it was sold for back taxes hadnt discovered her skull out in the yard, she might still be missing. And its a shame. Now, we are the first to respect every living souls right to privacy. Some folks moved here precisely because they want to live in the country and be left alone. Their wishes should obviously be honored. Add drugs to the mix which may have been the case here in the form of prescription pills, investigators say and things get iffy real fast. But other cases arent that clear cut. Theres nothing wrong with reaching out. Nobody likes a busybody, but let your neighbors, assuming theyre approachable, know youre there for them should they need it. That may be the best you can do but it may be enough. For a human life to come to an end this way is tragedy in one of its more grotesque forms. We hope not to see it happen again.Letters to Santa from yesteryearLETTERS TO THE EDITORMorris Williams is a local historian and long-time retired educator. This time, the system worked in Florida Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1783, the British evacuated New York during the Revolutionary War. In 1940, the cartoon character Woody Woodpecker made his debut in the animated short Knock Knock. In 1963, the body of President John F. Kennedy was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery; his widow, Jacqueline, lighted an eternal flame at the gravesite. In 1973, Greek President George Papadopoulos was ousted in a bloodless military coup. To the Editor: A special thank you is due to the Lake City Regional Office of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC), and to Columbia County. The FWC furnished the materials and the engineering, and Columbia County upgraded the Watertown Lake Pier to make it wheelchair accessible. It is now the only fishing pier in Columbia County that is suitable to take wheelchair patients from the VA hospital fishing. Volunteers, recreational therapists and patients at the VA hospital are extremely grateful, as are many other partially disabled citizens in this area who like to fish. After the Lake Montgomery pier was dismantled, and after we were unsuccessful in obtaining enough grants, donations, or city and sate funding to replace it, the FWC, Anderson Columbia, and Suwannee County upgraded the entrance to the Suwannee Lake pier to make it wheelchair accessible. Anderson Columbia donated the materials, and Suwannee County did the work which was coordinated by FWC. That work was completed earlier this year, and VA patients have been taken there to enjoy outdoor recreation and fishing. It is about 20 miles from the VA hospital. We still havent given up on replacing the Lake Montgomery pier, and will continue looking for funding sources to help. It was only a couple of blocks from the VA hospital and was by far the most convenient place to take one or a dozen patients fishing. Meanwhile, we are extremely grateful for both the Watertown and Suwannee Lake piers, and for all of those involved in getting these two piers upgraded to accommodate wheelchairs.

New lander will fuel our fascination with MarsCAPE CANAVERAL In our solar system family, Mars is Earths next-of-kin, the next-door relative that has captivated humans for millennia. The attraction is sure to grow with Mondays arrival of a NASA lander named InSight. InSight should provide our best look yet at Mars deep interior, using a mechanical mole to tunnel 16 feet (5 meters) deep to measure internal heat, and a seismometer to register quakes, meteorite strikes and anything else that might start the red planet shaking. Scientists consider Mars a tantalizing time capsule. It is less geologically active than the twice-as-big Earth and so retains much of its early history. By studying the preserved heart of Mars, InSight can teach us how our solar systems rocky planets formed 4 1/2 billion years ago and why they turned out so different. Venus is hot enough to melt lead. Mercury has a sunbaked surface. Mars is pretty cold today. But Earth is a nice place to take a vacation, so wed really like to know why one planet goes one way, another planet goes another way, said InSights lead scientist Bruce Banerdt in Pasadena, California. Todays Earthlings are lured to Mars for a variety of reasons. Mars an incredible natural laboratory is reasonably easy to get to, and the U.S., at least, has a proven track record there, noted Lori Glaze, NASAs acting director of planetary science. The cherry on top is that Mars may have once been flush with water and could have harbored life. Trying to understand how life is or was distributed across our solar system is one of the major questions that we have, Glaze said Wednesday at a news conference. In two years, NASA will actually seek evidence of ancient microbial life on Mars if, indeed, its there. On Monday, the space agency announced Jezero Crater as the landing site for the Mars 2020 rover, which will gather samples and stash them for return to Earth in the early 2030s. The craters ancient lake and river system is brimming with diverse rocks, making it a potential hot spot for past life. Past life. NOT present. Associated Press

Florida defeated Florida State 41-14. By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comColumbia receiver TJ Jones is closing in on his college choice. Jones revealed his Top 8 schools on Twitter Friday night, with Ole Miss, Penn State, Florida, Louisville, Tennessee, Miami, Indiana and North Carolina all making the list. Â The thr eestar wideout says the schools arent listed in any particular order and he looks to take a few more visits in January. First, I would like to thank God for allowing me to have Â the athletic ability that he has blessed me with, Jones said in his tweet. Thanks to all the schools (that) have r ecruitied me thus far and decided to give a Zooooo boy an opportunity to come in and receive a great education (and) also pursue my football career at a high Division I level. I would like to thank all my family, friends and coaches for sticking with me through it all.

By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comTheres no need to feel embarrassed if you mix up their names. After 16 years together, theyve grown numb to the common mistake. Even some of their closest friends and relatives at times cant tell them apart. Brothers Ian and Alex McGuigan hold a unique bond unlike any other. Theyre interchangeable and inseparable. They also happen to be identical twins. Take a look around, one would be hardpressed to find another set strolling the halls at Columbia High School. Even the McGuigan boys can be tough to find, as both student-athletes maintain busy schedules throughout the school week. If theyre not at home or in the classroom, theyre probably in the wrestling gym a place of refuge, where the twins have found peace over the last four years. And they never have to look far for a sparring partner. Every day the twins test each other on the mat jockeying for position, part of an ongoing series of daily battles a brotherly love that breeds competition. Its not like hardcore competition, like were going for something, Ian said of wrestling his brother. Its more or less, just seeing whos better that day. And the winner never holds bragging rights for long. There will be days where hell take me down more than Ill take him down, Alex said. And then theres days where Wrestling has become a place of refuge for McGuigan brothers at CHS.TWINS continued on 4B Florida ends skid vs FSUBy BOB FERRANTE Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The quarterback who grew up just a few minutes down the road helped Florida halt a five-year losing streak to Florida State, and the Gators ensured the Seminoles will not go to a bowl. Feleipe Franks had three touchdown passes and No. 13 Florida used a punishing ground attack to end a five-game losing streak to Florida State, defeating the Seminoles 41-14 on Saturday. Lamical Perine had a 74-yard touchdown run as Florida ran for 278 yards, averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Perine ran for 129 yards, averaging 9.9 yards per carry. Florida had 536 offensive yards and reinforced its case for an at-large spot in a New Years Six bowl game. Thats hard for me to say because only 12 teams get to go do that, Florida coach Dan Mullen said. Weve certainly put ourselves in the conversation as one of those teams. The Gators (9-3) halted Florida States bowl streak, which began in 1982. They ensured the Seminoles their first losing season since 1976, Bobby Bowdens first season as head coach. Franks, a redshirt sophomore who grew up just 20 miles south of Doak Campbell Stadium in Crawfordville, completed 16 of 26 passes for 254 yards. Its always been a dream of mine to come here and play against Florida State, Franks said. Ive always wanted to get a win here specifically. I had all my family up here, friends in the stands. Its gratifying. Franks threw touchdown passes to Van Jefferson, Trevon Gators rush for 278 yards to top Noles for first time since 2012.GATORS continued on 2B B2

Jones did note at the end of his announcement that things are subject to change with any new offers. Hes been highly sought after by numerous schools this fall, Â nar rowing his list down from 38 offers. Noticeably absent from Jones Top 8 is Texas A&M, which was his only official visit to date. Hes Â taken a few unofficial visits, including to Florida and Miami, but has yet to take another official. Jones says he plans to take visits to most, if not all, of Â the schools in January. Â National Signing Day is Feb. 6. Its no surprise that so many colleges have been interested in Jones. The senior caught more than 40 passes for over 800 yards and 10 touchdowns in 11 games this season for the Tigers, who were defeated by Robert E. Lee in last weeks regional semifinals. JONES Continued From 1BGrimes and Josh Hammond. Grimes led the Gators with five receptions for 118 yards. Deondre Francois completed 14 of 29 passes for 154 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown pass to Cam Akers, and had a 4-yard touchdown run. Francois also threw two interceptions and fumbled. The Seminoles (5-7) had been undone this season by penalties and committed 10 on Saturday. They finish the season one of the nations most penalized teams with 110. We just took turns making mistakes, Francois said. We played an undisciplined game as a team. We gave up big plays on defense and didnt move the ball on offense. Florida State had six defeats by double digits and lost to Miami, Clemson and Florida in the same season for the first time since 2009. Disappointing game, disappointing season, Florida State coach Willie Taggart said. I think everybody in that locker room is hurting. Its unacceptable here at Florida State. We got a program that prides itself in winning and we didnt get it done. I was brought here to get this program back right and thats what well do is get it back right.KEEP HAMMERING AWAYFlorida rushed for 200-plus yards for the eighth time this season. That matched its combined total from 2015-17. The Gators 2,762 yards rushing is the fourth-highest total since the start of 1990. Florida also had 500 or more offensive yards for a third straight game, which also includes wins over South Carolina and Idaho to close the regular season.TURNAROUND IN YEAR 1Mullen surpassed Ray Graves (1960) for the largest win improvement in school history by a first-year head coach. The Gators went 5-4-1 in 1959 under Bob Woodruff and then 9-2 in Graves.CLEVELAND INJUREDFlorida receiver Tyrie Cleveland walked off to the locker room after trying to make a catch in the first quarter and has a broken collarbone, Mullen said.FANTASTIC FRESHMANFlorida State linebacker Jaiden Woodbey had his first sack in the third quarter and had a season-high 11 tackles. The true freshman had 58 tackles.THE TAKEAWAYFlorida: The Gators had lost four of their last five to Florida State by double digits, but this time was different. It was Floridas biggest win over Florida State since Tim Tebow was the quarterback in 2009, a 37-10 Gators win. Florida State: The Seminoles were undone this season by mistakes and that was the case again on Saturday. Florida State committed 10 penalties and three turnovers.UP NEXTFlorida: The Gators await the bowl announcements Dec. 2 and could be headed to a New Years Six game. Florida State: The Seminoles season is over.

How is this possible? Hunt from a Shooting house. Shooting houses are also called Elevated Deer Blinds or Shacks. This is my first year of not hunting from a tree stand. In a tree stand, every small motion of a foot or hand might be detected. There is very little space in a tree stand to even set a Thermacell down. Sitting 16 feet up in a tree, space is just that tight. The seat is the size of a legal sized sheet of paper. But in a shooting house, there is lots of room. And as far as a chair goes, most hunters use an office style chair with arm rests and rollers on the legs. There are shelves for Thermacells, game calls, cell phone and anything else a hunter wants to bring along. Yes, there is plenty of room. The regulations for Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) do not prohibit the use of a shooting house. But since a shooting house is semi-permanent, it probably is not a good idea to build one on a WMA. This is because at seasons end, all deer stands are supposed to be removed from WMAs. I know of at least one shooting house in the Osceola National Forest. For the most part though, moving a shooting house is something one only wants to do a once or twice. So all in all, shooting houses are most likely restricted to use on private property. Besides making deer hunting way more comfortable, a shooting house helps confine human odor, it muffles sounds should any occur and it lets the hunter move a lot. Some hunters read books or listen to IHeart radio to pass time when in their shooting house. The hunter can even stand up cautiously and stretch his or hers legs when in a shooting house. Most hunters build their own shooting houses. For the hunter that doesnt have time to build one, several companies make shooting houses. Materials used in construction include plastic, fiberglass and metal. Costs for a commercially made shooting house range from a low of $900 to a high of $3,500 depending on size and features. Generally, the more they cost, the better they are. If building a shooting house, the cost will be considerably less. I recently built a 4 x 6 shooting house for just under $400. For anyone thinking about building a shooting house, here are a few tips. I used Elevators as the bracket to attach the shooting house legs to the floor frame. My shooting house is only six feet off of the ground because that is a height I could work with when lifting walls. The interior needs to be painted black or any dark color in order to minimize contrast of the human shape when game might look in the windows. Most hunters opt to use OSB plywood for the floors and walls but regular exterior grade plywood would probably be a better choice despite costing a little more. If you have your own property or a lease, a shooting house is definitely worth thinking about. Whether buying a commercially made model or building one yourself, they definitely add comfort to the hunt. Stay safe and good hunting.Shooting house being constructed at Needmore Hunting Club. This photo shows the completed shooting house shown in the photo to the left at Needmore Hunting Club. COURTESY PHOTOSThis is an oldie but goodie shooting house at Summers Pasture Hunting Club. Though 20-plus years old, this shooting house is currently being used and is still fully operational. COUNTRY CLUB AT LAKE CITY GOLF REPORT
4B SUNDA Y, NOVEMBER 25, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER Photos by ERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbia wrestlers Ian McGuigan (left) and Alex McGuigan (right) are pictured with their father and Columbia assistant coach Gary McGuigan. Im scoring more than he is I think competition for us isnt as heavy as other siblings. Its not like oh Im way better than you. Its like were here for a reason. Its not to be in constant competition with each other. Were here to make each other get better. The twins, who were born a couple hours apart, were introduced to sports not much longer after they learned to walk. They first gave soccer a shot, and later baseball but neither sport struck a cord with the undersized brothers. It just didnt click as well as wrestling did, Ian said. In the seventh grade, shortly after moving to Lake City from Tampa, the brothers decided to try their hand at wrestling more of an individual sport, one where short-stature men arent at a competitive disadvantage. It was one of the best decisions theyve ever made, for several reasons, they say. Wrestling has changed me for the better, Ian said. In middle school, we were definitely overweight, and pretty short. I wrestle at 126 [pounds] but I used to weigh 160 And were making good friends. Its kept us out of the streets I guess. Were not doing stupid stuff. This is our free time pretty much. The twins say they dont mind having such a rigorous schedule, despite watching their junior classmates enjoy busy social lives. They believe it will all be worth it in the end, especially if theyre able to secure college scholarships. The boys remain confident their hard work and determination over the years will eventually pay off. It already has, if you ask their teammates. They work really hard, returning state qualifier Matt Ross said of the McGuigans. Thats one thing I can give them. Theyre some of the hardest workers in the room. After being in the wrestling program for the past two years, the twins are ready to make themselves household names around the region this season. And theyre primed for the challenge after spending the summer training alongside their dad and assistant coach, Gary. Both earned impressive wins this summer in exhibition meets, taking down state-placers from places like Mississippi and Alabama. The best thing about them being twins is that theyre in competition with each other all day, every day, Columbia coach Pete Whittington said. So when we come to these tournaments, theyre both going to be competing for the higher place. Its going to work out good for us. The Tigers sent four wrestlers to the state finals last year. The twins werent included in that group, but they plan to be in the discussion this time around. Ian McGuigan is coming off a breakout 36-10 season in which he was named a district finalist and regional qualifier. His brother, Alex, didnt receive as much varsity time as he was pegged behind now-departed star Chace Curtis last season. Alex says hes excited to finally showcase his skills on the big stage. I didnt have a chance to go to districts or regions, Alex said of last season. I dont really think theres anyone in our district that can get anywhere close to where Im at. So thats probably going to be easy, not easy, but open. Regions is when the competition gets a little bigger. Thats when Im really hoping to show who I am. Regardless of being only 16 years old, both wrestlers sense time passing by. Theyre doing their best to soak up their last two seasons, trying to improve their performance on the mat, while college recruitment process works itself out. Both are humble and say theyd be grateful for whatever opportunity comes their way. While Alex says hed be content with his career ending in college, his brother has even bigger dreams, hoping his deep passion takes him to the professional level. But neither of them are thinking too far ahead, simply taking it one day at a time. I want to get there but first things first is college, Ian said. Getting into college is the biggest thing.

Williams RotoExperts Bills tune out Jaguars Ramsey trash talking of Josh AllenBy JOHN WAWROWAssociated PressORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey can criticize Buffalo rookie quarterback Josh Allen all he wants. The Bills arent taking the bait. Everybody has their thing, and thats his thing. He likes to talk, Bills running back LeSean McCoy said. If he feels Josh is trash or whatever, thats his opinion. I think Josh is really good. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams shrugged. I dont care, he said, when reminded of Ramsey calling Allen trash, and referring to the Bills decision to select him seventh overall as being a stupid draft pick, in a story published in GQ Magazine in August. Ramsey didnt back off this week, with Jacksonville preparing to play at Buffalo on Sunday, and Allen set to start after missing four games with a sprained right throwing elbow. Because I wanted to, Ramsey said, referring to why he felt the need to go after Allen. If you dont know me, thats on you. Yall know me. If you look deep into it, you will be able to figure out why I was so hard. Allen took the high road. In calling Ramsey one of the best corners in the game, Allen said the only way to deal with the comments was ignoring them. We move on, he said. Whatever bad blood the outspoken Ramsey might have been attempting to stir between two non-division rivals meeting for the 11th time in 13 years is being set aside in part due to the deep ruts both teams have dug for themselves. Some 11 months since the Jaguars defeated the Bills 10-3 in the AFC wildcard playoff, both teams are 3-7 and have been mostly undone by sputtering and turnover-prone offenses. The Bills taking a step back was expected despite ending a 17-year playoff drought. Buffalo is breaking in a new quarterback and had little money to spend this offseason to address needs on offense. Buffalo is at least rested, following its bye week off, and coming off a 41-10 win over the New York Jets in which journeyman Matt Barkley breathed life into an offense in his first start in nearly two years. The Jaguars, by comparison, have been a major disappointment a year after a 10-6 finish and losing the AFC Championship game to New England. Theyve dropped six straight and coming off a 20-16 loss to Pittsburgh, in which they squandered a 16-0 third-quarter lead. The offense has sputtered due to injuries and ineptness. And Jacksonvilles prized defense has been unable to carry the extra burden. Coach Doug Marrone refuses to lean on excuses. I have to lead this team through this tough challenge of this adversity, and we have to continue to go out there and play with the same type of emotion, the same type of enthusiasm with each other, Marrone said. And if we keep doing that and working away, we will find a way to win.

Buyer has big plans for lumber millBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe new management for a local wood-products manufacturer says it has big plans for the mill. Robbins Manufacturing Company, based in Webster, purchased Cochran Forest Products off U.S. Highway 90 in Lake City earlier in November. Robbins plans are to increase Cochrans production and expand its marketing area, the company wrote in a media statement. The plant will continue to serve existing customers with the goal of making the business stand out as a top supplier in the Southeastern United States, the statement reads. We will continue to foster strong long-term relationships with customers and suppliers, as well as continue to hire, train and retain employees who will uphold the same ideals Robbins has practiced since 1938: Never cut the quality, the company wrote. In the early 1980s, the plant was owned by International Telephone and Telegraph, operating under the name Southern Wood Piedmont. The plant was later purchased by J.R. Cochran and Callahan Timber Company in 1988. In 2002, Cochran assumed complete ownership. The plant became one of the largest producers in Florida of utility poles and pilings which are used in docks and piers. Robbins became one of Cochrans largest customers after the mill had to be rebuilt in the aftermath of a 2010 fire. With retirement on his mind, J.R. Cochran sought to sell the mill and chose Robbins as the best candidate, according to the statement. The deal is structured to give Cochrans associates, including Vice President Carlton Jones, a spot under the mills new management. The structure of the deal includes all Cochrans associates under the Robbins umbrella, including Cochrans vice president, Carlton Jones. Robbins did not disclose the purchase price. Robbins looks to be the biggest wood supplier in the Southeast. CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterRobbins Manufacturing employee Carlton Jones, left, and plant manager Richard North tour the local mills grounds recently. The facility, formerly Cochran Forest Products, switched hands earlier in November.
2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25 DECEMBER 1, 2018 Getting ready for the Baby StepsDear Dave, I like your plan, and Im ready to get control of my finances. Should I catch up on past due bills before saving $1,000 for the beginner emergency fund you recommend in Baby Step 1? Samantha Dear Samantha, This is a great question, because it gives me a chance to walk you all the way through the Baby Steps plan. Make sure your necessities are taken care of first. Im talking about food, clothing, shelter, transportation, and utilities. Then, get current on anything you owe or make payment arrangements for your past due bills. Once you have these things taken care of, its time to take your first Baby Step. Youve already mentioned getting $1,000 in the bank for a starter emergency fund. Thats Baby Step 1. After that, begin your debt snowball. Thats Baby Step 2, and here youll pay off all your debts from smallest to largest, except for your home. Attack the first balance on your list by paying as much as you can each month, while making minimum payments on your other debts. When youve paid off the first one, add what you were paying on it to the payment on your next debt and start attacking it. In Baby Step 3, youll save up and increase your emergency fund from $1,000 to a full three to six months of expenses. Trust me, youll be surprised how quickly you can save money when youve got all that debt out of the way! Once you reach this point, its time to really start looking at the future. In Baby Step 4 you start investing 15 percent of your income for retirement. College funding for any little ones is next in Baby Step 5, and Baby Step 6 is a big onepay off your house early. But Baby Step 7 is the real deal. When youre able to build wealth and give with extreme generosity, youve reached the pinnacle of smart money management. Good luck, Samantha! 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 Live Oak proclaims CRA Day after awardThe City of Live Oak Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) was recently honored with the Presidents Award for its project, Heritage Square (H2) Master Plan at the 2018 Florida Redevelopment Association (FRA) Awards. The mayor of the City of Live Oak acknowledged the recognition on November 13, proclaiming it CRA Day in the City of Live Oak. The FRA Awards are presented at the associations annual conference, held this year in Fort Myers. The FRA Awards recognize outstanding achievement in a variety of categories, from annual reports to cultural enhancement. The entries are examined for effectiveness and completeness including the narrative, supplemental material and compliance with the submittal instructions. Judges are selected by the FRA and represent various organizations and sectors from around the state. The Presidents Award is the highest award a CRA project can receive. One of the highlights of being FRA president is getting to select a project for the Presidents Award, Brenna Durden, FRA president, said. Little did I know how truly difficult the task would be. The City of Live Oak CRA partnered with Kimley-Horn and Associates Tallahassee Office to create The H2 Master Plan. The project was produced from a community derived vision to create a new downtown district for the City of Live Oak. The current Live Oak Downtown Corridor is commercially oriented and lacks activation and use after regular working hours. The H2 Master Plan identifies a 17-acre area just north of the existing downtown where 21st-century housing and neighborhood amenities could be created to provide new life, and new residents, to the restored historic downtown core. Specific ideas include solar-panel shaded community parking, walkable corridors, natural-gas decorative lighting, an extension of the Heritage Trail, designated food truck areas, and features an innovative storm water management system through the installation of bio-swales and the possible adaptive reuse of the historic and distinctive City Water Tower and Old City Water Works. The preservation and inclusion of 100-year-old historic buildings in the current downtown, with emphasis on dining and family-oriented experience-based converted storefronts will complete the rebirth of our Old Florida Frontier Town. H2 is planned as a TransitOriented Development that will serve as the missing piece to a revitalized City Centre, whose crowning achievement would be the resumption of Gulf Coast passenger train service from Jacksonville to New Orleans with a stop in Live Oak. We are thrilled to have received this award on behalf of all rural Florida communities who struggle with change in this challenging economic environment, said Gabrielle Redfern, the executive director for the City of Live Oak CRA. Old Florida is often overlooked, and is the last to recover in times of recession and depression. We could not have accomplished this recognition without the vision and support of our community.

The Hurricane Michael Tax Relief Act allows individuals affected by the Category 4.9 storm penalty-free early access to their retirement savings and helps employers and businesses within the disaster area. Specifically, the bill allows for penalty free withdrawals from retirement plans, makes it easier to qualify for personal casualty loss deductions, provides tax relief to help businesses retain employees, temporarily suspends limitations on charitable contributions associated with hurricane relief, and grants taxpayers the option to refer to earned income from the previous year for deter mining the Earned Income Tax Credits and Child Tax Credits. Hurricane Michael struck the Panhandle with a vengeance last month, leaving a level of destruction most have never seen in their lifetime. As we work to pick up the pieces and rebuild our communities, many are struggling with the financial burden left by the storm. Victims of the storm should not be unfairly penalized for using their retirement savings during this unprecedented disaster, said Dunn. This important legislation allows folks to access money they have saved over the years without facing penalties, while temporarily suspending limitations on charitable contributions to our area. From staff reportsBy ALEXIA ELEJALDE-RUIZChicago TribuneThe fatal shooting Monday at Mercy Hospital & Medical Center in Chicago highlights a sobering reality about workplace violence: women who are killed at work are commonly targeted by intimate partners. Forty percent of women who died as a result of workplace violence in 2016 did so at the hands of domestic partners or relatives, compared with 2 percent of men, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Men, who represented 82 percent of the 500 work place homicide victims last year, are most commonly killed by robbers. Mercy emergency room physician Tamara ONeal had reportedly broken off her engagement with the gunman, Juan Lopez, a few months before he confronted her in the hospital parking lot Monday and shot her multiple times. Officials say Lopez subsequently went into the hospital, where he killed a police officer who had rushed to the scene to help and a 25-year-old pharmacy resident as she came out of an elevator. Mary MacLaren, chair of the Workplace Employee Assistance Program Task Force for Chicago Says No More, an advocacy group that works on domestic violence and sexual assault issues, said she had a sinking feeling when she heard the news that the perpetrator may have been the doctors ex-fiance. Thats the most dangerous time, when the person tries to get out of (the relationship), she said. Recognizing that domestic problems often spill into the workplace, MacLarens task force works with businesses to create cultures where employees feel comfortable talking about it with management. While 85 percent of companies have a policy about violence in the workplace, only 14 percent address sexual assault and domestic violence, she said. There is a lot of shame and embarrassment associated with domestic violence, she said. She recommends that people who have been victimized by domestic violence get orders of protection and provide security guards at their workplace with a photograph of the individual. But it is also incumbent on bystanders to raise the issue if they are aware a co-worker is having domestic problems, which can manifest not only as physical abuse but also emotional or financial abuse, she said. The Mercy shootings also highlight the high risk of violence at hospitals and other health care environments, which are easily accessible to the public. The rate of nonfatal violent injuries sustained by nurses is three times higher than the average of all other private sector workers, said Kenneth Zinn, political director of National Nurses United, a union representing 150,000 registered nurses across the U.S. that has been working to bring attention to the issue. Often those incidents stem from the high-stress hospital environment, where people who are seriously ill, on drugs, suffering from mental illness, involved in the criminal justice system or distraught by the cost of medical care can lash out. But because hospitals are a microcosm of society at large, domestic violence also comes through the doors, Zinn said. The union backs federal legislation introduced on Friday that would mandate that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration create a national standard requiring health care and social service employers to develop and implement a comprehensive workplace violence prevention plan. The bill whose mandate includes hands-on training, adequate staffing for patient care and security and employee involvement in all steps of the plan mirrors legislation adopted in California. While it is impossible to know if such a plan could have reduced the casualties at Mercy, Zinn said it helps if everyone is equipped to respond immediately. If someone knew to call the police, that should have triggered a response plan that was well rehearsed, he said. Why was the shooter even able to get in the doors after the violence that happened outside the facility?

Well announce it in next weeks edition. bonds, but they can be volatile, and you dont want a market crash just before you retire. If you dont expect much or any pension income, consider creating your own pensionlike income via immediate or deferred fixed annuities from highly rated insurance companies. Avoid index annuities and variable annuities, though, as they can have some major downsides, such as steep fees. Know that annuities generally offer higher payouts in times of higher interest rates, so you may want to plan to buy later. Dividend income is another good choice. Park a significant chunk of your portfolio in at least a handful of healthy and growing dividendpaying stocks, and you can enjoy regular income along with a good chance of stock-price appreciation. If you have $200,000 in stocks with an average dividend yield of 4 percent, youre looking at $8,000 in annual income. Its well worth consulting a financial professional for advice, too. Theres a good chance theyll save you much more than they cost you.

It also holds a massive portfolio of stocks, including big stakes in companies such as American Express, Apple, Coca-Cola and Wells Fargo. Even though Berkshire was recently valued at over half a trillion dollars, Buffett thinks its cheap. The company bought back almost $1 billion of its own shares in August, and more buybacks could be coming. Buffetts aversion to overpaying for companies is one reason Berkshire has thrived. As he says, Be fearful when other are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Buffett has cautioned investors that Berkshires future returns wont be nearly as strong as the approximately 21 percent annualized return its produced since he took the reins in 1964. And, at 88, Buffett wont be in charge forever. But as long as his successors stick to his conservative, value-based approach, Berkshire can continue to thrive. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.) rffBad TimingYears ago, when I started investing in individual stocks, I ran across a stock tip online. I saw that the company had been trading at low levels, but in the last hour, it was climbing. I jumped in, thinking I could watch it and time my exit well. In less than 15 minutes, though, the company plunged from about 12 cents per share to less than a penny per share. I lost almost all of my investment. Im convinced the recommendation was designed just for this purpose, to push up the price of a worthless stock. I feel like I ended up just giving my money to a thief. Afterward, on discussion boards and through articles at The Motley Fool and elsewhere, I learned to make much better investing decisions. If I need a timing fix, I play in bitcoin. C.H., online The Fool Responds: Your suspicions were likely right: You got burned in a classic penny stock pump-and-dump scheme. Beware of any stock trading for less than about $5 per share, as those are often penny stocks that can be easily manipulated. Understand that timing the market is a dangerous game, as no one can really know exactly when a stock or the overall market has hit a peak or a bottom. Market timers often lose out. Be careful with bitcoin, too, as it has also burned a lot of investors. Owning Part of a CompanyQIf I own 1 percent of a companys stock and the company earns $100 million, do I get 1 percent of that, or $1 million? P.G., Hickory, North CarolinaANot quite. If you own stock in a public company, you do own part of it, but corporate earnings typically dont get automatically sent to shareholders at least not in full.A company can do a bunch of things with its profits. It might, for example, pay down some debt, pay dividends to shareholders, buy back (and essentially retire) some of its own shares, or reinvest in its business by building factories, hiring more workers, buying advertising and so on. It might do a combination of those things, and may just bank the money, too, waiting for opportunities. All these options can reward shareholders, sometimes even more powerfully than if the money were just distributed as dividends. Shareholders are also rewarded when the company grows and its stock value rises accordingly.***QCan you explain unrealized gains? W.F., Warsaw, IndianaAWhen you sell an investment, youll usually realize a gain or loss. For example, if you bought shares of Scruffys Chicken Shack (ticker: BUKBUK) at $50 each and then sold them three years later at $62, youll have a realized gain of $12 per share (less commission costs).Meanwhile, imagine that you bought shares of Home Surgery Kits (ticker: OUCHH) at $22 apiece and theyre now at $27. If you havent sold any shares, youve got an unrealized gain (or paper profit) of $5 per share. Since you havent actually sold the holding, its your profit in theory only, and an unrealized gain. It will be realized when you sell.Want more information about stocks?

If youre worried that youre way behind in saving for retirement, know that you probably still have time to bulk up your nest egg. You may want to sock away as much as possible each year and perhaps even work a few more years than youd planned to. If you can save and invest $10,000 per year for 10 years and it grows at an annual average of 6 percent, youll amass close to $140,000. Its not a kings ransom, but it will be helpful. After all, your investments are going to have to support you, significantly or completely, during retirement. If youre within 10 years of retirement, consider cutting back on stocks and adding some bonds to your portfolio. Stocks do tend to feature much higher returns than 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Holiday shoppers hitting the storesBy SAMANTHA MASUNAGALos Angeles TimesMarisa Balderas, 32, arrived at a Best Buy in Montclair at 2:30 a.m. Friday with one goal in mind getting a 55-inch Sharp television for her father, whose eyesight is declining. I figured a nice, big TV would be easier on the eyes for him, the Ontario resident said. The chances were good that Balderas would score her TV, which was on sale for $249.99, a savings of $200. Balderas was first in a line that at 7:45 a.m., about 15 minutes before the store opened, curled around the building. (Spoiler: She got it.) Although 2018 brought visions of retail bankruptcy and empty mall storefronts, shoppers will spend with enthusiasm this holiday season with the help of low unemployment, rising incomes and a greater sense of job security, analysts predict. Holiday shopping is crucial for retailers, who can reap up to 40 percent of their annual revenue during the final few months of the year. And its no slouch for the economy either because consumer spending accounts for about two-thirds of U.S. economic activity. Greater consumer confidence in the economy is expected to lead to retail sales totaling $1 trillion this holiday season, up 5.8 percent compared with last year, according to market research firm eMarketer. Online sales could hit $123.73 billion, a 16.6 percent jump from last year. Its important for retailers to get shoppers into stores on the first holiday shopping weekend to ensure momentum for the rest of the season, said C. Britt Beemer, chief executive of Americas Research Group, which studies consumer behavior. If shoppers are in stores early on, they might see additional items and make return visits. Getting that customer in the door on Thursday and Friday is a big deal, he said. The National Retail Federation trade group expects 164 million people to shop in stores and online from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday, a prediction similar to the groups estimates last year. Even though some retailers started offering bargains in early November, Black Friday should still be the busiest shopping day of the weekend, with about 71 percent of customers planning to shop, according to the group. Its the experience of going out and shopping and trying to find a deal, said James Bohnaker, economist with IHS Markit. Theres definitely still a big place for the in-store shopping experience. Alma Andrade, 49, had already grabbed a 55-inch TV for $499 at a Sams Club on Tuesday, during an early Black Friday sale, but that didnt stop the Lakewood resident from visiting the Citadel Outlets in Commerce with her son on Friday. Its a tradition Ive had with my son for a long time, she said. Sometimes we dont shop much. Its bonding time. Citadel Outlets expects that about 100,000 shoppers will visit its stores from 8 p.m. Thursday to 11 p.m. Friday. Shopping traffic is expected to be up 7 percent to 10 percent compared with last year, spokeswoman Chelsea Hartnett said. By 9:30 a.m. Friday, long lines of shoppers queued outside of retailers, including Kate Spade and Michael Kors on the high end, and Levis and Gap on the more affordable side. Black Friday online sales through 7 a.m. Pacific time had reached $643 million, up nearly 28 percent from a year earlier, according to Adobe Analytics. On Thanksgiving, online sales hit $3.7 billion, a 28 percent increase from last Thanksgiving. Top products were the Nintendo Switch gaming console, Beats headphones and Hot Wheels toys, Adobe said. Friends Ramsey Wahhab and Tim Young, both 23, had already been shopping for four or five hours by the time they got to a Target store in Montclair, California, to purchase Wahhabs birthday present for Young a PS4 controller. The controller was only about $20 off for Black Friday, but Wahhab figured some discount was better than none. This year, he said he planned to spend more than last year, mostly because he recently was hired full time as a lab technician for a biotech firm. Ive upgraded from ramen to ravioli, he joked. Consumer spending accounts for two-thirds of economic activity. JEFF WHEELER /Minneapolis Star TribuneThe aisles of the Eden Prairie store filled up quickly with bargain hunters shortly after it opened Thursday evening.

And, you can make book on the fact that too many of them are not from telemarketers but from telescammers targeting senior citizens, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Technology is making it easier to place automated phone calls and while many legitimate companies use them to sell products and services, criminals are having a lucrative field day using computer generated calls to swindle innocent citizens, according to AMAC president Dan Weber. The Federal Communications Commission says that the number one consumer complaint it consistently receives is for unwanted automated calls. In fact, during the first half of 2018, the number of robocalls increased by at least 50 percent. Ethan Garr, an executive at TelTech, a company that makes one of the many call blocker apps on the market, says that robocalls are cheap. He says it costs just a penny a minute. And, the technology news website, Futurism reports that some phone carriers actually kick back micropayments to telemarketers, and scammer. Although such payments amount to just a fraction of a penny a call, it adds up considering the fact that the callers are making billions of calls a month. As for the scam calls, just last month police in Pennsylvania arrested a man in connection with a telescam leveled at senior citizens. He was charged with swindling elderly in various parts of the country out of some $400,000. What he allegedly did was to call seniors and tell them that a grandson was in trouble and needed cash immediately. Both of these scams are fairly common, says Weber. But, oftentimes the crooks get creative. For example, the IRS says some of them have found ways to alter their caller IDs to make it look as though the Internal Revenue Service is on the line. Theyll then threaten stiff penalties if the victims fail to pay money that they allegedly owe. Automated telephone calls may be annoying, but the statistics show that most them are legitimate sales calls. However, NBC News recently reported that as many as 40 percent of robocalls in the U.S. are from scammers. From staff reportsIkea looks to slash 7,500 jobsBy JAMES RUFUS KORENLos Angeles TimesFurniture giant Ikea plans to cut 7,500 jobs worldwide as part of a plan to cater more to online customers, the company said Wednesday. The shakeup at the Swedish firm, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, shows that even Ikea known for its massive suburban stores is not immune to the online competition that has affected other brickand-mortar retailers. Most of the job cuts will not hit Ikeas retail workers, but rather those in office positions including human resources and communications, the Journal said. Meanwhile, the firm plans to create thousands of new jobs by opening 30 new stores in urban centers and by investing in its e-commerce and delivery offerings. In Wednesdays statement, Lars Petersson, Ikeas manager for U.S. retail operations, said the company wants to create the IKEA of the future by . being more accessible and fully embracing technology.

LIFE Lake City Reporterwww.lakecityreporter.comSunday, November 25, 2018Section D Story ideas? Contact Editor Robert Bridges754email@example.com The Blanche set for May completion Lake Citys former premiere hotel, among other things, the Blanche is now 116 years old. Historic per sons such as Al Capone once stayed in the hotel.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comThe restoration of a 116-year-old downtown Lake City centerpiece to its status as the hub of the community is nearing a final phase, and a project spokesperson said by early May its restoration would be complete right on schedule. Dennille Decker said all major construction is mostly complete at the Blanche, and the focus has now moved to the buildings interior and what she called its cosmetic elements. Soon she said they will move on to what she called the last piece of the puzzle the crown jewel of the approximately 75,000-square-foot mixeduse facility. The center space, where were going to have the event center, that is going to be really the last part of the puzzle theyre putting together, said Decker. She said the building with its 20 oneand two-bedroom apartments, 18 private offices and 14 short-term rental units along with the retail and event spaces is set to be finished in early May. At any given day theres between 50-75 people working working six-day-a-week shifts just trying to get it all done, Decker said. She is marketing director for Valdosta, Georgia-based IDP Properties, which has overseen development of the project, while another Valdosta-based company, True North Construction Group, Inc., has overseen its construction. She said a video documenting the Blanches past and future will soon appear on its website, www.theblanche.com, and on social media. The Blanche has got such a big stake in the community, Decker said. When I was growing up, this was the place to be. It was the hub of our community. Thats what we want it to be again. She said they interviewed people connected to the Blanches past, like a 102-year-old woman who worked there in the 1930s, along with those soon to move into the remaining apartment spaces. She said five of the 20 units have already been rented, with rent starting at $995 for a one bedroom and $1,250 for a two bedroom. Throughout their construction she said theyve encountered surprises that come along restoring with a nearly 120-year-old hotel that has housed such historic figures as Johnny Cash and Al Capone. Decker said among those surprises were a lot of hidden fireplaces, some cool artifacts (and) bottles. (See related story, 1A.) As seen from North Marion Avenue, the Blanche, while amid renovations, is expected by project insiders to be entirely complete by early May.Photos courtesy SOUCINEK PHOTOGRAPHY/Special to the Reporter From top-to-bottom the Blanche, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was gutted and remodeled for the 21st century. Its yet unclear what all the Blanche will house, but both retail and office spaces will be available. Several surprises, like hidden fireplaces and nearly centuries-old artifacts, were unearthed during construction. Construction began around February 2018 on what is billed as the first mixed-use development in Lake City. A project spokesperson said the bulk of the remaining construction consisted of interior cosmetic work. Built in 1902, the Blanche 2018 will house apartments, offices, retail and an event space. The Blanche marketing director said the event center will be the last piece of the construction puzzle.

Plans you make will give you something to look forward to. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Learn as you go. Watch how those with more experience handle situations, and you will pick up valuable information. Getting together with elders will bring you greater understanding of what happened in the past. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Refuse to let anyone talk you into doing something you dont want to do. Use your intelligence to monitor a situation and respond properly. You should be concentrating on personal change and a little romance. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont feel you have to change because someone else does or asks you to. Its important to do things because you want to and to engage in pastimes that interest you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A change will do you good. Get involved in something that challenges you mentally and physically. Surround yourself and enjoy time spent with people who stimulate you and motivate you to be the best you can be. Romance is encouraged. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Walk away from situations that are indulgent. Do something constructive that will help you gain greater perspective on what you want to accomplish. Someone you are close to will offer solid advice. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep your life simple. Visiting someone from your past can be revealing and help you recognize your own shortcomings. Dont join in if you feel uneasy about what someone else is doing. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Settle up debts you have with a friend or relative. Not owing or being owed will give you a sense of freedom and will lead to innovative beginnings. Learn from other peoples mistakes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Change begins within. Dont do something because someone wants you to do it; do it because its what you want to do. Be true to yourself and set standards that will not compromise your integrity, lifestyle or future goals. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont rely on others. Do your own thing to avoid being annoyed by someones inconsistency. Domestic matters should be evaluated and dealt with calmly and efficiently. Dont pay for someone elses poor judgment or unfortunate mistake. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A change will take you in a new direction. Embrace the future. Youll find a path that brings you in contact with interesting people and the chance to get ahead financially. Personal gains look promising. Romance is in the stars. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont trust what someone tells you. Go to a reliable source for the information you need to make a sound decision. Children or your lover will play an important role in helping you move forward. DEAR ABBY: I have been seeing this guy for nine months. We had a good relationship, but then it hit a bump in the road. He was told some false information about me, and instead of giving me the benefit of the doubt, he immediately assumed it was true. He said nasty things to me, called me horrible names, and we didnt speak for a month. Once we came back into contact, I forgave him for falsely accusing me and put the episode behind me. My mother is not as forgiving. She told me I can do better, and I should forget about him. I tried to explain how I feel about him and how I want to move on from it. She hasnt had a change of heart and says she does not approve of him. So now I sneak around with him. I want to respect her opinion, but I do not want to give up the guy I love. I dont know what to do. Help! TORN IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR TORN: I cant salvage this romance and neither can you. Theres a term for people who call others horrible names and say nasty things to them. They are called verbal abusers, and the effects of what they say can be lasting. An example would be the way his accusations have affected your mother, who thinks her daughter deserves better, and your relationship with her. Sneaking around is immature. A guy who would help you do that is nothing to brag about. If he loved you as much as you say you love him, he would have apologized not only to you but also to your mother. If he had, she might have changed her opinion about him. DEAR ABBY: This is a message about our senior population. Our children grow up, marry and have children. Each grandchild is special. We love them and adore being with them. Then the grandkids grow up and have little ones of their own. By this time were old and sometimes need help with housework, yard work, or just would like to get out of the house to go eat or shop. We still have feelings, and were not dead. But while it may not be intentional, it seems there is no time for the elderly. We may say were fine and dont mind being alone, but it is lonely at times. No one calls to say hello or ask if we need anything. How long does it take to make a call? It would be nice if each family member called once a week or came by once a month. The love weve always had for family is still there and strong. Children and grandchildren, please think about this and remember: The most important thing you can give your elderly relatives is your time. Time is the most precious gift of all. Someday you will be old, too! WISE WOMAN IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR WISE WOMAN: Im printing your letter because it carries a message some families need to hear. That said, I am a strong advocate for individuals who advocate for themselves.

4D SUNDA Y, NOVEMBER 25, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER Mothers gesture grows into nonprofit effortBy BILL LL EUKHARDTThe Hartford CourantBERLIN, CO nnNN In 2015, Karen Cote sent a car e package to her soldier son, who was stationed in Kuwait. That one box became the catalyst for Cotes nonprofit group that, three years later, is sending 400 holiday packages to soldiers in desert outposts in Iraq and Afghanistan this month. Cote said the box she sent to her son Nicks forlorn outpost was so appreciated by his unit that she decided to keep sending more out. I had no idea it would grow so much, Cote said. Its all because of people being so generous with donations and time. Her decision resulted in Hero Boxes, a registered nonprofit that this year collected more than 6,000 pounds of donated items. The Berlin community really came out to support the troops this year with donations of items needed and wanted by our deployed troops, plus the backing for paying for shipping the packages, said Peter Galgano, a Vietnam Marine veteran who serves on the towns Veterans Commission. Thanksgiving night is the final public-invited work session to finish the 400 boxes for this years holiday mailing. Its at the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall in New Britain, 41 Veterans Dr. a new location because Hero Boxes outgrew the hall it used to use in Berlin. Numbers tell that story. The first year the group sent about 100 boxes. Last year they mailed 250 packages. This year, the number is 400, weighing more than three tons of candy, toiletries, socks and sundries for troops miles from a base or store. All items are donated, collected from boxes the charity puts up across the region beginning Nov. 1. Each box contains hardto-get necessities and treats considered luxuries by troop posted miles away from any base or other places they could buy items like soap, black socks, packs of cookies, disposable razors, sunscreen, or playing cards. So many items were donated that the group now has a surplus that will be stored and used next year. Itll cost about $14,000 to mail all 400 boxes. That expense was covered by donations, too. Im just overwhelmed by how generous people are, Cote said. So many people donate items and their time. They make this all possible. Caitlan Williams of Berlin was stationed in Iraq for eight months in 2001 with her Army unit. She volunteered to pack boxes with the troop she now helps lead: a local Girl Scout troop. The scouts raised money to buy 400 black stocking hats, or beanies, to ship off. The hat is a mercy in a desert night when temperatures turn cold, Williams said. You wouldnt think youd need a beanie in the desert but the nights get really cold, Cote said. The hats also protect your head in day from sun and sand. Its heartwarming for people to do this, Williams said. Cliff Cote, Karens husband and an Air Force veteran, said the generosity toward the soldiers is very different than the cool reception he said he and other returning Vietnam veterans had. A Vietnam veteran who came here and saw this put his head down and cried like a baby because he was so moved by people doing this, compared to what it was like when we came back, Cliff Cote said. We dont want that ever to happen again.

Two-dozen amateur boxers fought it out in the ring, Monday, Nov. 19 for charity. The participants, representing all corners of the Islands business community, helped raise between $125,000 and $175,000, organizers said. More than 1,000 people attended the 15th annu al Long Island Fight for Charity at the Hilton Long Island in Melville, the organizers said. The event featured special guest appearances by boxing legends Leon and Michael Spinks. The amateur fighters, with ring names like Tara The Hit Girl Del Bianco, Chris The Undertaker Tombline, and Michael The Number Cruncher Holmstrom, came from a wide array of industries and jobs. The competitors, most with no boxing experience, had been training since the spring for the event. The Fight for Charity has donated more than $1.1 million to Long Island charities since its launch.

Much to the chagrin of my wife, I could be forever happy gardening among conifers. I love green selections, blue-gray varieties, and then there is nothing that causes my heart to race quite like the gold varieties. Then to add the magic I would like as many shapes and sizes as possible. My son James, a landscape-guru, just installed a cool season bed for a commercial client measuring several hundred square feet. OO ver the years this pr ogressive business has given him the opportunity to use large woody nursery stock as temporary or a seasonal attraction to catch the eye and to make a statement with the hundreds of pansies, dianthus, and snapdragons. This year a colorful conifer garden was planted and may draw the eye even more so than the flowers. Forever Goldy arborvitae, Thuja plicata, a Southern Living Plant Collection conifer, stands out with its 24-karat foliage making a dramatic statement it is grown in combination with the blue-gray of Carolina Sapphire Arizona cypress, Cupressus arizonica, and Emerald Green arborvitae, Thuja occidentalis. The small compact conifers make just as big of an impact. Gold Mop or threadleaf cypress, Chamaecyparis pisifera, and Pancake arborvitae, Thuja occidentalis, also a Southern Living Plant Collections conifer but with blue foliage makes an electrifying, complementary partnership. Supplemented with the golden chartreuse foliage of the dwarf Japanese cedar, Cryptomeria japonica globosa nana and you have to bring out the camera. You can do something similar at your home whether permanent with your regions recommended conifers or seasonal like in Columbus. You will want to select a site with as much sun as possible. This really allows the colors to pop. The conifers and cool-season annuals alike absolutely must have fertile soil with great drainage. If your soil is tight, heavy clay and not well drained, then plan on amending it with 3to4 inches of organic matter and work the bed to a depth of 8 to 10 inches. The best idea might be to copy what the commercial landscapers do, planting on raised beds accomplished by bringing in a prepared soil mix. Even though good drainage is paramount, water will be necessary to allow the conifers to maintain their health and appearance and to get roots acclimated and expanded in your bed. In the South the winter season allows us to celebrate like our friends in the north or even the California west coast. If we want to plant a Douglas Fir, or Alberta Spruce or better yet a cluster of three, and grow them as an annual we can do that.
