Tropical Storm lingers off Central America

This satellite photo provided by NOAA on Saturday shows Tropical Storm Gamma off the coast of
Central America. Gamma - the 24th storm of the busiest hurricane season on record - formed
Friday off the coast of Central America, and forecasters said it could threaten Florida.

Associated Press
MIAMI - Tropical Storm
Gamma lingered Saturday off
the coast of Central America,
with forecasts indicating it
could threaten storm-weary
Florida by the beginning of
next week - possibly even as
a hurricane.
'There is certainly a poten-
tial for an impact on Florida
from this system," said
Richard. Knabb, hurricane
specialist at the National
Hurricane Center. "We can
probably count on a good bit
of wind ... It could be both a
wind and rain event."
Forecasters cautioned,
however, that the longer-term
forecast was uncertain and
that it was also possible that
Gamma could weaken or dis-
sipate before crossing the
Gulf of Mexico toward the
Tropical storm warnings
were issued for the entire
coast of Belize and the Bay
Islands of Honduras. Mexico

issued a tropical storm watch
for the eastern Yucatan
Peninsula, which was hit hard
in October by Hurricane
Rainfall of between 6 and 10
inches was forecast for Belize,
western Cuban and the
Yucatan, with up to 15 inches
possible in isolated areas.
Heavy rains were also fore-
cast for parts of Honduras,
with 12 inches possible in
some spots.
The long-term track from
the National Hurricane
Center indicated that Gamma
may take a track similar to
Wilma's and head northeast
toward the Florida Peninsula.
Wilma tore across the south-
ern portion of the state from
west to east on Oct. 24, caus-
ing widespread damage,
21 deaths and power outages.
The initial forecast called
for Gamma to remain a tropi-
cal storm as it approached
Florida, with the possibility it
may become a Category 1
hurricane with winds of at
least 74 mph. Forecasters also

said some computer models
indicated Gamma could dissi-
pate because of wind shear in
the upper atmosphere.
"Right now, the forecast is
highly uncertain," Knabb
By 7 a.m. EST Saturday,
Gamma's maximum sustained
winds were near 45 mph and
it was located about 130 miles
east-southeast of Belize City,
Belize, and 230 miles south-
southeast of Tulum, Mexico.
It was :moving north-
northwest at about 6 mph.

storm of the busiest Atlantic
hurricane season on record.

MacDill Air Force Base

cancels spring airshow

Associated Press
TAMPA - The command-
er of MacDill Air Force Base
has canceled next spring's air
show, citing security concerns
and busy operations.
Air Force Col. Maggie
Woodward said in a statement
Friday that no specific threat
prompted the move. She said
it would simply require too

much energy and resources to
properly protect the nearly
6,000-acre facility.
"As the leadership of the
base weighed the pros and
cons of having the airshow,
our security situation and the
incredible tempo our folks
have been maintaining for
over'a year led us to decide
that it was too much to ask of

the troops to have an airshow
in 2006," Woodward said.
Air Fest, which alternately
is headlined by the Air Force's
Thunderbirds and the Navy's
Blue Angels, drew 350,000
people in 2005 and half a
million visitors in 2004.
The event did not take place
for two years after the Sept. 11
attacks, ending a 15-year run.

Ring tone will
support Red Cross
Former ABBA member Benny
Andersson has composed a ring
tone for mobile phones that will
be sent to people who donate
money to the Swedish Red
Cross' annual Christmas
collection drive, the organization
said Friday.
To get the ring tone, called
Red Xmas, Swedes must donate
50 kronor - about $6 - by
sending a text message from
their mobile phones to a special
number set up by the Red
Cross. The donation will then
be added to their phone bill, and
a link to download the ring tone
will be sent to their phones.

Bratman, a 28-year-old music
executive, proposed to Aguilera in
February while on vacation in Carmel,
Calif. Their hotel room was filled with
rose petals, balloons and gift boxes, and
each had a present and poem.
"When I got to the last box, there
was a ring in it," Aguilera told the
magazine. "He got down on one knee
and said "Will you do me the honor of

Council to consider

four items Monday


Lake City Council will
have its Monday meeting at
6:30 p.m., instead of 7:30
p.m., and will consider
making the change in meet-
ing time permanent.
The council will hear the
final read of an ordinance to
approve an amendment to
the final budget for fiscal
year 2005.
Also on the agenda is a
first read of an ordinance to
amend the pension and
retirement plan for general
employees of Lake City.
Under the proposed plan,
eligible city employees have
a choice of remaining in the
city retirement plan or par-
ticipating in the Florida
retirement system.
The council will also
consider four resolutions:
* A $10,000 grant from
the State of Florida,
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) for technical
assistance funding to help
the city comply with new
planning requirements. The
requirements are to comply
with Senate Bill No. 360, an
amendment to Florida's
Growth Management Act.
* To enter into an
agreement with the Florida
Department of
Transportation (FDOT) to
construct, maintain and

operate a Global Positioning
System (GPS) Reference
Station at the Lake City
Municipal Airport.
* To request FDOT to
place signs in areas that are
either on or adjacent to
right-of-way maintained by
FDOT. This is in downtown
Lake City for the placement
of new signs in conjunction
with the new parking
* To authorize the city to
hire Tetra Tech Hai to pro-
vide engineering services.
This is in connection with
construction of 6,000 feet of
36-inch ductile iron-finished
water main to be installed
between the Water
Treatment Plant and State
Road 100.
City Council will also have
a workshop at 5:30 p.m.
before the council meeting.
Items that council members
will discuss include changes
to awarding bids.
The changes to bids that
council is considering are
broken down into categories
that include bids of more
than $20,000, bids of less
than $1,000 and bids
between $1,000 and $8,000.
City Council will have its
Dec. 5 meeting at 5:30 p.m.
(because of the Christmas
Parade) and its Dec. 19

Florida man admits selling false credits to teachers

Associated Press

MIAMI- A former high
school teacher accused ,of
operating a company that
offered teacher certifications
without proper training,
including some through an
Ohio college, has agreed to
serve two years in prison as
part of a plea agreement with
prosecutors. ' :
William McCoggle, 73,
pleaded guilty to a fraud
charge in Miami-Dade County
Circuit Court. He will also pay
up to $100,000 in restitution.
In court Friday, he
apologized and promised to
cooperate with investigators.

Now, with the new prescription plan

n 1913, Columbia
County's prospective
teachers had to take and
pass a state test to receive
a teacher's license. The
10-part test was given over five
days, two parts each day. Each
part was worth 100 points and
to receive a "First Grade
License" (the license that enti-
tiled you to teach any grade),
you had to average 85 percent
on the whole test and score at
least 60 percent in every area.
You studied for the test by
buying the textbooks on which
each, part was based.
Agriculture, for example, used
John Frederick Duggar's
"Agriculture for Southern
Schools" (75 cents a copy);
algebra used Milne's "High
School Algebra" ($1 a copy).
The subjects tested were
orthography (the study of
correct spelling) and reading,
English grammar, arithmetic,
composition, geography,
history, agriculture, teaching
theory and practice, civil
government and algebra.
The test was serious
business. "Every examinee
must supply himself with
cap-paper, must write in a
legible hand with pen and ink,
must work in full view of other
examinees, must number or
letter answers to agree with
questions, and must fasten all
sheets together on the same
subject," the instructions said.
Think these were easy tests?
Here are some sample
* Agriculture. Why do
budding and grafting bring
fruit truer to the parent stock
than a tree grown from the
seed will bring? (10 Points).
Also, name five rules for
selecting good seed corn.
(10 points).
* Algebra. Factor the
following: 2ax + 2ay-
2az+2bx+2by-2bz. (4 points).

Hurricane Katrina relief
worker. I attached myself to a
family who had suffered a
great loss to the hurricane.
Their once beautiful home
and possessions were ruined
and buried in heavy, stinking
wet mud. Jeff and Tammy
Brownsberger had built a fine
two-story home over an old
single-story fish camp.
He is a builder by trade and
with his own design, utilizing
heavy timbers and massive
concrete footers, the house
and large garage withstood
the explosive tidal surge
which flooded the home with
18-feet of muddy salt water.
Even the vinyl siding was
fastened so tightly it was
almost perfectly intact. They
invested everything in their
effort. It was almost perfectly
intact, but they had no money
left to purchase insurance.

eled 12 miles a day more than
"B" and the number of days
before they met was equal to
one-half the number of miles
"B" went per day. How many
miles did each travel per day?
(15 points).
E Civil Government. State
the most important function.0of
any government and tell why.
(10 points). Also, give five
important events that led to the
'formation of the United States
and explain the'importance of
each event. (10 points).
* Geography. Name three
states of the United States most
productive in each of the
following: Copper, silver, wool,
sugar and wheat. (2 points
* Teaching Theory and
Practice. (From White's
"Elements of Pedagogy").
Define psychology and give five
reasons why a knowledge of
psychology is helpful to a
teacher. (10 points)
* Composition. Explain the
basis of vigor of thought and
give the qualities of words
necessary to produce vigor in
writing; illustrate by comparing
examples in Lincoln's
Gettysburg Address and
Webster's Bunker Hill
Monument speech.

led to the Missouri
Compromise and give three
provisions of the Compromise.

winners who
passed the
finish line - but I hadn't heard about it,
probably because I don't aspire to write fiction.
Chris Baty, in his history of NaNo, says they
hadn't expected it to be so much fun. "Fun was
a revelation," he says. "Novel-writing, we had
discovered, was just like watching TV. You get
a bunch of friends together, load up on
caffeine and junk food, and stare at a glowing
screen for a couple hours. And a story spins
itself out in front of you."
More than that, "We had taken the
cloistered, agoniized novel-writing process and
transformed it into something that was half
literary marathon and half block party."
Marathon, indeed. Last year, 42,000 people
signed up for NaNo, and nearly 6,000 of them
finished their books.
The first marathon, the news carried by
Pheidippides of the Greek victory over the
Persians at the battle of the same name,
passed into legend. Well, actually the myth
was probably cobbled together several
centuries later from a few randomly assorted
facts, but never mind; we have remembered it
for nearly 2,500 years, even if we have
remembered it wrong.
Now, running marathons is recreation for
the masses, so much so that thousands of
people compete for spaces in some of the
largest and most celebrated races.
Pheidippides, if he ever existed, would be
A few people have actually sold their NaNo
novels to real publishers, just as somebody
actually wins the Boston Marathon. But for
most runners it is finishing the marathon that
changes their lives. NaNo writers "started the
month as auto mechanics, out-of-work actors,
and middle school English teachers. They
walked away novelists," NaNo says.
I heard about NaNo from my daughter-in-
law, Jesse. He (Jesse is transgendered and
prefers masculine'pronouns, just so you know
there's no need to write and tell me that I'm
getting them wrong) started a novel called
"Summerlands" in October. So it doesn't
qualify for NaNo, but as a gesture of solidarity
he's keeping track of words in November,

If you wonder whether anything written so
fast can be readable, oh, yes indeed. I love
"Summerlands," even though it's not one of
my usual genres and I looked at the first
couple of episodes only out of curiosity.
Quantity over quality, as a deliberate tactic,
lets writers try things they wouldn't otherwise
"If I were trying to do it /well/," Jesse wrote
me in an e-mail, "I'd absolutely freeze up and
never get anywhere."
Summerlands is an alternative world,

humans are a subordinate species, mostly

Readers enjoy exchanging comments with
the author as his novel happens, and this
social aspect is a big part of NaNo's success,
too. It has local in-person meetings, participant
forums, radio broadcasts, projects to build
children's libraries in Laos and a host of other
community-building events.

The following is a list of
roadwork underway by the
FDOT that may impact traffic:

* Southwest Second
Avenue (State Road 26A):
One lane will be closed Sunday
beginning at noon between
Southwest 28th and 34th
streets (by Publix) to allow the
placement of underground
drainage pipes across the
roadway. Traffic remains shifted
from just east of Southwest
34th Street by Publix to
Southwest 28th Street for
drainage modifications and
roadway widening. Dump
trucks are entering and leaving
a retention pond site behind
Publix. Bicyclists and
pedestrians just east of
Southwest 34th Street are
temporarily detoured to
University Avenue. Motorists
should use caution when
approaching Southwest 36th
Street and the entrance to the
Creekside Mall as crews work
on drainage and median
islands in the area. The
Hogtown Creek Bridge is
scheduled to be closed to all
traffic beginning Nov. 29 until
May 6, 2006.
* State Road 20
(Hawthorne Road): The
overpass at U.S. 301 will be
closed sometime during the
week between 9 a.m. and
4:30 p.m. so crews can place
asphalt on the new overpass.
All traffic will be diverted to the
ramps and across U.S. 301
using the traffic signals.
* Southwest Williston
Road (State Road 331):
Daytime lane closures for
eastbound traffic between
Southwest 34th Street and

Southwest 13th Street for utility
work in preparation for the
resurfacing which is scheduled
to begin in December.
* Southwest 13th Street

between Southwest 16th
Avenue and Southwest 14th
Drive as crews work on curb,
sidewalk and concrete
* Newberry Road (State
Road 26): Daytime lane
closures between Northwest
80th Boulevard and Northwest
109th Street as crews work on
the medians in preparation for
the resurfacing of the roadway
which is scheduled to begin
after Thanksgiving.,

* State Road 47: State
Road 47 is totally closed to all
traffic between U.S. 41 and
Bascom Norris Drive for the
next several months.
Southbound motorists are
detoured to U.S. 41 to Bascom
Norris Drive and back to SR 47
or they can use Michigan
Street. Northbound motorists
are detoured east on Bascom
Norris Road to U.S. 41. All
businesses have access from
side streets. Motorists should
also watch for dump trucks

entering and leaving the
roadway from south of Bascom
Norris Drive to north of 1-75.
Also, motorists should watch
out for construction traffic on
the newly paved lanes on the
west side of the existing lanes
as they are approaching
State Road 47. Wide loads are
still prohibited from Bascom
Norris Drive to south of County
Road 242 due to the restricted
width of the travel lanes from
the barrier wall. The traffic
between Business Point Drive
and Bascom Norris Drive is
tentatively scheduled to be
switched to the west side of the
road before Christmas.
* U.S. 90: Daytime lane
closures on Monday and
Tuesday at the signalized
intersections of Sisters
Welcome Road and
Ridgewood Drive to hang the
mast arm poles for the new
traffic signals. Resurfacing is
scheduled to begin in early

* U.S. 41: Workers are
building a sidewalk alongside
the roadway in White Springs
from the spring house curve
near the Library to the north
city limits. There should be no
impacts to motorists.

projects will be suspended for
the Thanksgiving holiday
period from Wednesday,
Nov. 23 through Sunday,
Nov. 27. Work will resume on
Monday, Nov. 28. FDOT, a

Vendors look to help Katrina victims


More than 10 vendors set
up tables at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds on
Saturday to raise money for
Hurricane Katrina victims as
part of the third-annual
Christmas Open House.
About 50 people stopped in
throughout the day to peruse
the books, jewelry, candles
and crafts for sale. One hun-
dred percent of the proceeds
will be donated to the Red
Home interiors decorator
Stephanie Lane, who has been
planning the event since June,
said she wanted to raise the
money for hurricane survivors
because she was moved by
their stories.
"It made me want to cry,
just watching the news and
seeing every new thing that
happened," Lane said.

with small photo albums,

other gifts to benefit the cause.
Lauri Thomas, of Premier

the event for the first time.
She said people liked her
festive "holiday" jewelry.
"Anything sparkly, anything
glitzy," she said.
Branford resident Heather

for sale Saturday afternoon
and stopped to check out
some Tupperware. She said
she read about the open house
in the newspaper and came to

Poltrock said the fundraiser
was "very upperclass."

'"This is a way for us to

also support businesses," Hair
said. "Please take the opportu-
nity to come downtown and
support our local businesses,
because that reverberates
through our economy.
"It's (Festival of Lights)

Government set to launch new

The U.S. government is
launching a new Medicare pro-
gram on Jan. 1, 2006, leaving
many senior citizens wonder-
ing about the many different
options available for them.
The sign-up period, which
began Nov. 15 and runs
through May 15, allows sen-
iors to sign up for a new pre-
scription drug plan through
Medicare Part D.
However, more than 50 pro-
grams are offered nationwide,
and 44 of them are offered in
Florida through 18 organiza-
tions including Blue Cross and
Blue Shield of Florida, CIGNA
Healthcare, Prescription
Pathway and United
"On average, many of the
plans are fairly similar," said
Carl Allison, owner of Baya
Pharmacy. "For instance, some

plans will push mail order,
while another will have no
co-pay for generics."
There are multiple options
that a person on Medicare has
for looking at the variables,
benefits and drawbacks that
each plan has to offer.
"The program is good that it
helps people pay for medica-
tion that they sometimes can't
afford, but it was put together
in a fashion that isn't easy to
understand," said Joel
Rosenfeld, owner of North
Florida Pharmacy.
According to a report from
the Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services (CMS), the
monthly premium for 2006 will
average at about $32 a month.
Some plans begin as low as
$10.35, while others cost as
much as $104.89 a month
depending on the deductible,
which will be no more than
$250 in 2006.
On average, a person with

- Carl Allison,
Baya Pharmacy owner.

Medicare and no drug cover-
age will see their total drug
spending costs decrease by
50 percent and they will save
$1,100 per year on average,
according to CMS.
"We're seeing people now
spending $1,000 to $2,000 aver-
age per month on prescription
drugs," Allison said. "The new
plan will end up paying
between 50 and 75 percent of
drug costs."

However, Allison says the
online portion of the plan can
be confusing.
"It isn't difficult for me or
younger people to go online
and find information about the
most viable plan," Allison said.
"However, the majority of the
people on Medicare don't
frequent the Internet."
Allison confirms the hotline
can be helpful to people want-
ing to find information about
the plan for them, but they
should be prepared to wait
because the customer service
representatives are over-
whelmed by the number of
calls they receive.
Allison, who is allowing peo-
ple to come in and discuss
which plan is right for them,

explained that it is best to sign
up for a plan that covers a wide
variety of drugs, with his rec-
ommendation being the
Community Care RX program
"This program allows you to
go to any pharmacy and covers
95 percent of the top drugs,"
Allison said. "It also has low
premiums and no co-pay on
generic drugs."
Rosenfeld suggests there is
no plan that can be recom-
mended for everyone, because
not everyone takes the same
medicine and dosage.
"Some plans help the phar-
macists rather than the people
that need the medication,"
Rosenfeld said. "We're trying
to direct people to the

cheapest plan for them,
instead of what will provide the
most money for a pharmacy."
Rosenfeld also said that
while a doctor may prescribe a
drug not in a particular drug
coverage, there are multiple
generics and drugs out there
that normally will be under
that coverage.
Rosenfeld said when people
ask which plan is right for
them, he gives them the top
three cheapest plans available
to them.
"I don't want to tell a person
what plan they should use,"
Rosenfeld said. "I would rather
us give them the information,
let them call the toll free
number, and then decide
which plan is best for them.

We want to do the legwork for
them, but we want them to
Although Allison said he
would prefer one universal
plan, he believes there is
potential for the new system to
'There is potential to see the,
whole system succeed
because people will be treated
properly for their exact med-
ical condition, rather than, like
now, people not taking or buy-
ing their medicine because
they are unable to afford it,"
Allison said.

Georgia Tech upsets Miami

Hurricanes are out
of the ACC title
game with the loss.
Associated Press

MIAMI - Georgia Tech
sacked Kyle Wright seven
times, took advantage of key
penalties on two touchdown
drives and made a pair of
late defensive stands to
upset the third-ranked
Miami Hurricanes 14-10
Saturday night.
The Yellow Jackets blitzed
on virtually every play to
stymie Wright.
After throwing touchdown
passes to five receivers a
week ago against Wake
Forest, he managed only one
scoring pass and went
14-for-31 for 207 yards.

KaMichael Hall sacked
Wright twice and made a
fourth-down stop to end a
Miami . threat midway
through the fourth quarter.
Wright moved the
Hurricanes 62 yards to the
Georgia Tech 27 with 1:46 left
before he was intercepted by
Dennis Davis, and the Yellow
Jackets ran out the clock.
The Hurricanes (8-2, 5-2
Atlantic Coast Conference)
were eliminated from con-
tention for a berth in the
national championship game.
They lost for the first time
since their season opener at
Florida State.
The Yellow Jackets (7-3,
5-3) bounced back from a loss
a week ago to Virginia.
They also shook off an
NCAA decision this week to
place the school on two years'
probation for using 17 aca-

demically ineligible athletes

Georgia Tech mounted
touchdown marches of
68 and 61 yards against the
nation's No. 1-ranked
defense, and Miami penalties
contributed to both drives.
Interference on Marcus
Maxey negated an intercep-
tion in the end zone three
plays before Tashard Choice
scored the game's first
points on a 2-yard
touchdown run.
A penalty for excessive
celebration led to the
Yellow Jackets' other score
on a 16-yard keeper by
Reggie Ball.
Ball went only 11-for-30 for
159 yards, but in key situa-
tions he repeatedly found

receptions for 89 yards.

all rolled into one."
The games are about having
fun, but Zaxby's Raiders coach
Bud Parker said there is defi-
nitely an intense atmosphere
surrounding the contests.
"It's just the added tension,
a little added pressure," he
"Because in the bowl game,
you're one-and-done. If you
lose one, you're out. So it's a
little more pressure, but it
gives them something they've
never experienced before."

The Raiders went undefeat-
ed in the regular season, and
continued that streak with a
narrow 20-16 win against the
Annie Mattox Eagles in the
Midget League semifinals.
Their reward is a date with
Quincy in the Midget League
Championship Game at 6 p.m.
on Wednesday.

Woods surges to

Dunlap Phoenix lead

Furyk is one shot
back, Duval slips to
a third-place tie.
Associated Press
MIYAZAKI, Japan - Just
like last year, Tiger Woods is in
front at the Dunlop Phoenix -
with far less room for mistakes.
After trailing by a stroke in
each of the first two rounds,
Woods shot a 2-under-par 68
Saturday to take a one-stroke
lead over Jim Furyk. Woods is
at 10-under 200 while Furyk
shot a 70 for 201. David Duval,
whose last victory came at
this event in 2001, shot a 71
and was at 203.
Woods entered the final
round of last year's tourna-
ment with a 10-stroke lead and
shot a 67 to finish eight
strokes ahead of Japan's
Ryoken Kawagishi.
"I just need to go out there
and execute shots and play
well in order to win," Woods
said. "Jim loves to compete
and that's what makes him
tough to beat. Whenever he's
in contention, he's tough."
Woods carded five birdies
against three bogeys at the
Phoenix Country Club and
took advantage of a shaky
back nine by Furyk.
"The golf course was play-
ing difficult today," Woods
said. "I knew it was a day
when you had to play more
conservatively. Guys weren't
going to go, too low so a 2
under is a pretty good score."
Furyk, who held a one-
stroke lead over Woods enter-
ing the third round, bogeyed
the par-3 17th hole when he
hit a tee shot that went into
the greenside rough.
His second shot landed on
the edge of the green and he
two-putted for his third bogey
of the day.
"It was an interesting day,"
Furyk said.
"I was happy that I played
well on the front nine when it
was windy and the conditions
were tough, but disappointed
that I didn't play better after
the turn when the conditions
were better."
Furyk finished with a birdie
on No. 18 in the $1.7 million
tournament, the richest on
the Japanese tour.
Woods had a chance for an
eagle on the par-5 18th when
-he reached the green in two

Tiger Woods hits a shot during the fourth hole of the third round in
the Phoenix Tournament at the Phoenix Country Club in Miyazaki,
southern Japan on Saturday. After trailing by a shot after each of
the first two rounds, defending champion Woods shot a 2-under-par
68 Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Jim Furyk at the

but he left his first putt 7 feet
short and two-putted for birdie.
On the par-4 13th, Woods'
tee shot landed in the rough at
the side of the green. He
chipped on and then made a
10-foot birdie putt. Furyk
played it safe by laying up in
front of the green but had to
settle for par.
"It seems like every putt I

made today was downhill,"
Woods said.
"The greens here are fast
and the pin placings were real
tough today."
Duval, who shared second
with Woods entering the third
round and had a one-stroke
lead after the first round, is
tied for third with Japan's
Kaname Yokoo (68).
Duval, whose last victory
was at this event in 2001, had
three birdies and four bogeys.
Woods is. coming off two
runner-up finishes - at the
HSBC Champions in
Shanghai, China, last week
and the Tour Championship
two weeks ago.
He enjoyed* playing with
Duval and Furyk.
"We had a lot of fun out
there today," Woods said. "I've
played with Jim in the
Presidents Cup and with
David in the Ryder Cup and
World Cup, so it was a blast

Sorenstam clings to ADT lead

Associated Press
Annika Sorenstam had a two-
shot lead that she thought
should have been more as
she stood in the rough on the
18th hole Saturday in the
ADT Championship, staring
at a difficult lie below her feet
and a big water hazard next
to the green.
This had not been the best
of days.
She wanted to make sure it
didn't get worse.
'This was too dangerous,"
she said.
Sorenstam opted for cau-
tion, laid up and made bogey
on the par-4 closing hole for a
2-over 74 that cut another
stroke off her lead and ended
her streak of nine consecu-
tive rounds at par or better at
Trump International.
The good news?
She still had the lead by one
shot over Marisa Baena and
Liselotte Neumann heading
into the final round of the year
at a tournament where she is
the defending champion.
"She didn't birdie the last
hole," Neumann said.
"She ended up shooting
(2 over), which is a little bit
unusual for her. But, unfortu-
nately, that probably only
gets her more fired up for
(today). That's usually how it
works when she doesn't have
a good day. She really comes
back and plays great the next

Wales takes

the World

Cup lead
Associated Press

- Wales' Bradley Dredge
and Stephen Dodd shot an 11-
under 61 Satuirday in better
ball to take a two-stroke lead
over England after the- third
round of the World Cup.
David Howell and Luke
Donald of England and the
Swedish team of Henrik
Stenson and Niclas Fasth
were tied for second after
rounds of 63 for a total of
25-under 191.
Raphael Jacquelin and
Thomas Levet of France
also carded a 61 to trail by
five strokes. Denmark shot.
63 and was six off the lead.
Americans Zach Johnson
and Stewart Cink had a 67 to
trail by 13 strokes.

Annika Sorenstam waves after
sinking her putt on the 18th
green during the third round of
the ADT Championship at
Trump International'Golf Club
on Saturday.

At least Neumann has a
chance, carried along by a
pure swing that kept bogeys
off her card on a gusty after-
noon, until her only bad
swing sent her tee shot into
the water on the par-3 17th for
a double bogey. She shot 71.
Baena can't believe she has
a chance, after an
unbelievable round.
She was tied for 20th when
the third round began in

for second with a 6-under 66
- the only round in the 60s
- that put her one shot
'That was one of the best
rounds of golf I've ever
played," Baena said.
Sorenstam was at 3-under
213, one of only five players
who remained under par.
"I'm glad to be in the posi-
tion I'm in, but I'm disap-
pointed with my round
today," Sorenstam said.
"I'm just looking forward
to (today), to the last day, and
give it all I've got."
Catriona Matthew had a 70
and was at 1-under 215, along
with Hee-Won Han (74).
It was an exasperating day
for most everyone else, best
illustrated by the way Cristie
Kerr left the course.
She three-putted from the
fringe on the 18th for a bogey
and a 76, then angrily tossed
her ball to the water.
But she left that short, and
had to run across the green
and into the rough to
retrieve' the ball, exiting
through a tunnel beneath
the bleachers to reach the
scoring tent.
Paula Creamer, the
19-year-old rookie of the
year, stumbled in the middle
of the back nine and wound
up with a 74 to finish at 1-

Jags must deal with Titans

in chase for playoff berth

Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The
Jacksonville Jaguars have one
large obstacle - or perhaps
it's a mental block - to over-
come in their push for their
first playoff berth since 1999.
It's the Tennessee Titans.
Since joining the NFL in
1995, the Jaguars have, played
the former Houston Oilers
more than any other franchise
in a rivalry that started in
their inaugural game as AFC
Central foes and survived the
league's reorganization.
It was the Titans who kept
them from the Super Bowl in
2000 and have dominated this
series, winning six of the last
seven, 11 of the last 14.
Even banged-up last sea-
son, Tennessee still beat the
Jags, a loss that helped keep
them out of the playoffs
despite their first winning
record since, yes, 1999.
Today, the Jaguars (6-3) can
change that balance when
they visit the struggling
Titans (2-7) in what would be
one of the last big steps' in
their rebuilding process jump-
started with the hiring of

"I think we're starting to
find a little bit of an identity,"
Del Rio said. "I feel good
about that. I think we under-
stand where we are and where
we want to go."
The Jaguars finally seem to
be clicking on both offense
and defense, coming off a 30-3
victory over Baltimore that
was their first 30-point game
since Dec. 23, 2001. This
starts a three-game road

NEW YORK - Florida
coach Billy Donovan is learn-

young Gators.
Taurean Green had 23 points
and keyed a late second-half
run in Florida's 75-70 victory
over No. 16 Syracuse on Friday
night in the championship
game of the 2K Sports College
Hoops Classic on Friday night.
'They are young and eager
just to be out there playing,"
Donovan said. 'There's a lot of
unselfishness with them."
Florida (4-0) trailed 62-60
with 6:43 left before going on a
12-0 run. Green, named MVP
of the tournament, had eight
points during that span,
including a 3-pointer with 1:52
left to cap the spurt and give
the Gators a 72-62 lead, their
biggest of the game.
'Taurean Green made some
great plays," Florida coach
Billy Donovan said.
Green matched his career-
high set in the semifinals on
Thursday night against Wake
"It's .a great feeling win-
ning," Green said. '"We just
wanted to move the ball and
get open shots."
This should have been a tran-
sition season for the Gators,
having lost David Lee, Anthony
Robertson and Matt Walsh,
who supplied 60 percent of the
offense on last year's SEC

Auburn whips 'Bama in Iron Bowl

Georgia clinches
SEC East title by
beating Kentucky.
Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. - Bran-
don Cox passed for two first-
half touchdowns and
Auburn sacked Brodie
Croyle 11 times in Auburn's
28-18 victory against
Alabama on Saturday, the
Tigers' fourth consecutive
win in this bitter rivalry.
Auburn (9-2, 7-1
Southeastern Conference)
clinched at least a share of
the Western Division title
for the fifth time in six sea-
sons with their second
straight win over a top-10
team. LSU would play for
the SEC title with wins over
Mississippi and Arkansas.
With an anemic offense,
Alabama (9-2, 6-2) continued
a season-ending tumble with
its second loss in a row after
riding the nation's top scor-
ing defense into national title
contention earlier in the year.
The Tigers sacked Croyle
seven times for minus-51
yards in the first half and,
cashed in on three short
touchdown drives in the
opening 11 minutes en route
to a 28-7 halftime lead.
Alabama's offense couldn't
muster even the hint of a
comeback, allowing Auburn
fans to gloat with chants of

No. 9 Ohio State 25.
No. 17 Michigan 21
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -
Antonio Pittman's 3-yard
run with 24 seconds left
capped an 88-yard drive and
gave ninth-ranked Ohio
State a win against No. 17
Michigan, clinching a share
of the Big Ten title.
Ohio State (9-2, 7-1)
closed the regular season
with six straight wins and
gave coach Jim Tressel his

fourth win in five games
against Michigan (7-4, 5-3).
The Buckeyes shared the
conference title with Penn
State, which beat them in
October and will get the Big
Ten's BCS bid.
The Buckeyes rallied for
the victory despite two
turnovers and a shanked punt
that led to scores, a missed
extra point and field goal, mis-
handled punt returns and two
pass interference penalties in
the end zone,.
Michigan was essentially
playing mistake-free football
when it led 21-12 midway
through the fourth quarter
before Ohio State quarter-
back Troy Smith rallied his
team to a victory.
Smith's 26-yard pass to
Santonio Holmes made it
21-19 with 6:40 to go.
Michigan then drove to
Ohio State's 34 and chose to
have Garrett Rivas pooch
punt, instead of kicking a
long field goal into the wind.
Smith started the winning
drive at the Buckeyes 12 with
4:18 left and made a series of
clutch plays, including a
26-yard pass to Anthony
Gonzalez to Michigan's 4, to
set up Pittman's TD.

No. 5 Penn State 31,
Michigan State 22
- Joe Paterno and Penn
State locked up their first
Bowl Championship Series
bid after the Nittany Lions
defeated Michigan State to
win their first Big Ten title in
11 years.
Michael'Robinson ran for
90 yards and a touchdown
and passed for another, and
Alan Zemaitis had three
interceptions for Penn State
(10-1, 6-1).
Coming off a 4-7 season,
Penn State tied Ohio State for
the Big Ten lead but will get
the league's automatic BCS
bid because the Lions beat
the Buckeyes in October.

Michigan State (5-6, 2-6),
which began the season 4-0,
finished it with six losses in
seven games to post consec-
utive losing seasons for the
first time since 1991-92.
Win No. 353 gave Paterno
his first Big Ten title since

No. 6 Notre Dame 34,
Syracuse 10
Brady Quinn threw two
touchdown passes and Leo
Ferrine returned an inter-
ception for a touchdown,
giving Notre Dame a victory
over Syracuse.
Darius Walker, who rushed
for 123 yards on 26 carries,
added a 3-yard TD run in the
fourth quarter. The Irish
struggled on offense, with
Quinn not as sharp as he has
been and receivers dropping
catchable balls, but were still
good enough to beat the
Orange (1-9).
Notre Dame (8-2) needs
to beat Stanford next week
to remain eligible for its first
Bowl Championship Series
berth since 2000.

No. 7 Virginia Tech 52,
Virginia 14
- Virginia Tech dominated
archrival Virginia to keep
alive its hopes of gaining a
spot in the Bowl
Championship Series.
Two long weeks after get-
ting beaten convincingly by
No. 3 Miami, Cedric Humes
ran for 113 yards and three
touchdowns and Marcus
Vick threw for two more
scores as the Hokies beat
Virginia for the sixth time in
the last seven meetings.
Virginia Tech (9-1, 6-1
Atlantic Coast Conference)
also turned three Virginia
turnovers into touchdowns
and shut down Marques
Hagans and the Cavaliers

No. 14 Georgia 45,
Kentucky 13

ATHENS, Ga. - D.J.
Shockley threw four touch-
down passes, Danny Ware
scored on a 52-yard run and
Georgia wrapped up the SEC
East with a rout of Kentucky.
Georgia squandered a
pair of chances to wrap up
the division title, losing to
Florida and Auburn for only
the second two-game losing
streak since Mark Richt
took over as coach in 2001.
But the Bulldogs (8-2, 6-2)
rarely lose to Kentucky, win-
ning their ninth straight in
the lopsided series.
Shockley, one of the sen-
iors honored before
Georgia's final home game
of the season, completed
17-of-31 for 159 yards in less
than three quarters. Bryan
McClendon caught two of
the TD passes.
Even when the Wildcats
(3-7, 2-5) held a 3-0 lead at
the end of the first quarter,
no one at Sanford Stadium
seemed too concerned.
The Bulldogs will be
appearing in the title- game
for the third time in four
years. They meet the SEC
West champion in Atlanta on
Dec. 3 - with the winner
likely getting a spot in the
Sugar Bowl.

Clemson 13,
No. 19 South Carolina 9
James Davis rushed for 145
yards and his 2-yard touch-
down run lifted Clemson to
its eighth victory in the last
nine tries against South
Steve Spurrier had hoped
to conclude a season of suc-
cess - the Gamecocks

BOWL: Finals are at night

Continued From Page 1B
Tiner Tax Service Seminoles
The Packers will face Quincy
at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The
Eagles defeated Madison County
21-14 earlier Saturday.
The championship games
were originally scheduled for the
afternoon, but Quincy has a half-
day of school Wednesday, so
players and coaches would not be
able to make it to Lake City until
the evening.
This year, the Lake
City/Columbia County Parks and
Recreation Department and the
Columbia Youth Football
Association decided to tweak the
Memorial Bowl format.
In the past, the event was com-
prised of All-Star teams from
nearby areas. But this year, local
teams from surrounding areas
were invited to attend.
And Parks and Recreation
Department Athletic Director
Mario Coppock said the new for-
mat has been a success, citing
that in last year's all-star format,
Lake City had two teams and a
total of 50 players represented.
This year, that number swelled
to seven teams and 210 players.
'That's just tremendous,"
Coppock said.
It's been a long season for the

parents, players and coaches -
something Coppock plans to
"When you consider we start-
ed in August, and we. finish this
Wednesday - that's a long
season," Coppock said.
"We can curtail this bowl a lit-
tle bit next year. If that means a
reduction in teams' and possibly
starting earlier and using another
venue, we will."
Coppock said Columbia High
has been receptive to the idea of
hosting some games at the high
school football field in the future.
As for taking the credit for the
success of the Memorial Bowl,
Coppock pointed out that it was a
team effort.
'The coaches, our community,
our cheerleaders, everybody
involved in this, the Parks and
Rec. Department, the mainte-
nance staff, the guys who take
care of the field, the concession
people - they've all been very
supportive," Coppock said.
That support will probably
intensify by Wednesday, when
fans from Quincy and Lake City
pack the Memorial Bowl for the
final time this youth football

Stewart at ease as he closes

in on NASCAR history

Only 13 drivers
have won multiple
NASCAR titles.

Associated Press

verge of racing into NASCAR
history, temperamental Tony
Stewart spent Saturday morn-
ing searching for a little
serenity. He went fishing.
Under a brilliant sun on a
calm lake inside Homestead-
Miami Speedway, Stewart was
seemingly at peace. Unlike his
tortured run to the title in 2002,
his second march has been
smooth with few distractions.
Needing to finish ninth or
better today to clinch the
Nextel Cup title, Stewart can
use the season finale to
cement his name among
NASCAR's elite. Only 13 driv-
ers have won more than one
championship, with Jeff
Gordon the only one among
active drivers.
"I think he already ranks
right up there with the big
boys," said A.J. Foyt,
Stewart's boyhood idol and no
slouch himself with four
Indianapolis 500 victories and
a Daytona 500 win. "He's got a
lot of winning left in him.
There aren't a lot of drivers



like Tony Stewart anymore."
A winner at every level of
racing he's entered, NASCAR
was no different for Stewart
when he made the leap into
stock cars in 1999 following a
championship stint in the Indy
Racing League.
But the time demands, spon-
sor commitments and constant
scrutiny were difficult for
Stewart, a driver who relaxed
in a race car and seemed on
edge - sometimes even angry
- everywhere else.
He soon became known as
an extraordinary talent with a
history of derailing his own
success. He was his own worst
enemy, especially during his
2002 championship season.
NASCAR's bad boy was on
probation for punching a pho-
tographer, was ordered to
attend anger management
classes and was generally just
miserable. In the buildup to
the season finale, he was
dogged with questions about
what kind of champion he
would be and if his temper
would embarrass NASCAR
during his reign as the series
Three years later, Stewart
has finally figured out how to
cap his short fuse.
There have been few out-
bursts and fewer tantrums.
When baited, he was able to

summon the strength to walk
"You know what? He's 34
years old nowv," said his moth-
er, Pam Boas. "It was time to
grow up."
Stewart is far from
NASCAR's new golden boy,
but his dealings with the
sport's leadership have been
far more pleasant these days.
"I've really noticed a differ-
ence in him," said chairman
Brian France. "He's different
when I talk to him now. He's
more approachable. He's got a
smile on his face. He doesn't
make comments anymore.
that you don't understand. He
takes things in stride more.
"Whatever he is doing
looks like it is helping on the
track, too, because he is deal-
ing with adversity and manag-
ing it better than he ever has."
Should Stewart win the
championship on Sunday, it
would be his second in four
seasons - and his third major
title since 1997's IRL crown.
But this championship is no
gimme, .although it is his to
He leads Jimmie Johnson
by 52 points, with Carl
Edwards and Greg Biffle not
far behind. Edwards won the
pole, Biffle - the defending
race winner - qualified sev-
enth. Stewart will start 20th

and Johnson was 32nd.
Still, all the contenders
have accepted that it will take
a colossal collapse by Stewart
and his team - which has
been nearly flawless during
the entire Chase for the cham-
pionship - for anyone but
Stewart to win.
"I think it will be a travesty
if Tony doesn't win a champi-
onship," rival car owner Jack
Roush conceded. "I hope that
he does."
So does Stewart, who does-
n't want this second title so
much for himself, rather as a
gift to the team that stuck with
him through his darkest days.
"It would mean everything
to me, that's why I want to win
it so bad this year," Stewart
said. "2002 was probably one
of the worst personal years of
my life, even though it was
one of the most gratifying pro-
fessional years of my life as far
as winning a championship."
"It will mean 10 times more
if we can do it this year with
the way the year has been. I
think the entire team will
enjoy it more," he added.
Stewart will have to keep
his composure through one
more weekend. He succeeded
on Friday when he lost control
of the No. 20 Chevrolet during
practice, keeping it off the
wall through two full spins.

NASCAR driver Tony Stewart talks to reporters during a news
conference on Thursday in Miami. All Stewart has to do to win his
second championship is finish ninth or better in today's season
finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Edwards keeps doing things
nobody expects.
Edwards, nearing the end of
his first full season'in NASCAR
Nextel Cup with a mathemati-
cal chance to overtake, veter-
ans Tony Stewart and Jimmie
Johnson for the championship,
won the pole for today's
season-ending Ford 400.

weekend," said Edwards, who
trails leader Stewart by .87
points and is 35 behind
Johnson for the runner-up spot.
Stewart, the 2002 champion,
qualified 20th' and simply
needs to finish ninth or better
to close out his pursuers, no
matter what they do.
"If we can just go out there
and have a good run, we'll let
the rest of it take care of
itself," he said.
"We don't have to create

Edwards, who woke to find

home, .parked in the infield at

"I left the darned sink run-
ning all night and the people
here at Homestead-Miami
Speedway are so gracious, they
leave you a water line hooked
up, so you never run out of
water," Edwards explained.,
Johnson, the runner-up
each of the past two years,
qualified 32nd on Saturday. A
year ago, he was worse off,
starting from the rear of the
field after qualifying so slowly
he had to use a provisional.
But Johnson was able to move
through the field and finish
second, losing the title to Kurt
Busch by just eight points.

Following a prolonged
absence from the workplace
- whether to raise children,
take a sabbatical or tackle a
long-term pursuit - many
people wonder how best to

It's best to highlight any

away from the traditional
work world and how these
new abilities would allow
you to excel in the job for
which you are applying.
In the same vein, include

Burn Rate
Q What's a "bum rate"? - P V,
Escondido, Calif.
A A company's burn rate refers
to how quickly it's burning
through cash. This isn't that much
of an issue for large, established
companies, but with small and
quickly growing enterprises, it's
valuable to look at their bum rate.
The number to examine is free c sh
flow, which is income from opera-
tions, less capital e'pendit ltre-.
For example, imagine that in its
most recent quarterly report, the
Rubber Chick. C.neriin- Co.

Last chance for

2005 tax planning

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK - The next
few weeks will be a critical
time at small businesses - by
mid-December, companies
need to have their tax plan-
ning for the current year pret-
ty much complete. They also
need to be looking ahead to
For many businesses, the
two biggest year-end con-
cerns will be capital spending
and retirement plans - either
category can give your com-
pany a potentially large tax
deduction. But before you
make any big commitments
on equipment or a pension
plan, you need to be sure that
you're making a decision that
makes sense when you con-
sider how profitable your busi-
ness is, not just this year, but
next year also.
"You've got to look at your
tax bracket from year to year,
the whole picture," said
Jeffrey Berdahl, a certified
public accountant with Beard
Miller Co. in Allentown, Pa.
You also need to be certain
that you should never make a
year-end decision solely for
the purpose of lowering your
taxes - if you buy equipment,
for example, you should do so
because it fits into your overall
business plan.
Small businesses that buy
certain kinds of equipment
and put it into service by the
end of this year are eligible to
deduct the full amount of the
purchase price, up to a maxi-
mum of $105,000, rather than
depreciate it. Computers, cars
and manufacturing machinery
are among the kinds of equip-
ment that qualify for this
deduction; heating and cool-
ing systems are the kinds that

You can find out more about
the deduction, known as the
Section 179 deduction after an
Internal Revenue Code provi-
sions, by downloading IRS
Publication 946, "How To
Depreciate Property" from
the IRS Web Site, Another
online resource is the CCH
Business Owner's Toolkit at
t/P07(underscore) 2930. asp.
Small business tax guides in
libraries and bookstores will
also explain the basics.
While retirement plans may
seem to be an obvious way for
a company to lower its tax bill,
accountants say many small
business owners don't get
around to starting one.
You can get a quick educa-
tion into retirement plans at
the IRS web site. The agency's
Publication 560, "Retirement
Plans for Small Business,"
spells out the differences
among plans such as
Simplified Employee Pensions
(SEPs), Savings Incentive
Match Plans for Employees
(SIMPLEs) and the more
complicated plans such as
Keoughs, defined contribu-
tion plans and defined benefit
But beware - while you
still have time to set up a SEP
plan, you've passed the dead-
lines that apply to some other
retirement plans. And, if
you're going to create a quali-
fied plan, you have a fair
amount of paperwork ahead
of you. Publication 560
explains the requirements.
Berdahl noted that many
companies at this point are
working on setting up plans
for early in 2006 rather than
trying to cram them in before
the end of the year. And that's

Charter boat captains

tally storm losses

Associated Press
boat owners from KeyWest to
Corpus Christi, Texas, are
joining forces to convince
Congress of the need for post-
Hurricane Katrina economic
relief.' ..
The National Association of
Charter Boat Captains began a
series of meetings with Gulf
Coast charter boat owners in
mid-October in Mississippi
and will conclude the meet-
ings in South Florida next
month. The association met
Friday with Pensacola boat
"If there's a silver lining to
Katrina, it's that we've come
together as an industry across
the gulf. When we all, come
together as five gulf states, we
have a more powerful voice,"
said Bobbi Walker, executive
director of the association, told

the Pensacola group.
The 3,000 member associa-
tion hopes to convince
Congress to approve low-inter-
est loans, grants and other
assistance by compiling an
economic impact survey of
charter boat losses from
recent hurricanes.
Bob Zales II, the associa-
tion's president, said charter
boat bookings are down
80 percent at his Panama City
business since Katrina hit. He
doesn't expect business to
improve anytime soon
because of a wave of negative
publicity about conditions on
the Gulf Coast.
Another problem, fish popu-
lations were widely scattered
by the numerous hurricanes
to strike the region. When
Hurricane Ivan struck the
Florida Panhandle in
September 2004, it destroyed
many of the reefs where fish
gather, he said.

tree care

in a snap

is a holiday
tradition observed
around the world.
Various cultures
have different interpretations
of what the evergreen
Christmas tree symbolizes
ranging from a celebration of
the winter solstice to the gift
of eternal life promised by
Christ. With its decorations
and gifts underneath, it is
perhaps one of the most
recognized symbols of this
time of year.
While many people have
chosen to use artificial trees,
some prefer the smell and
look of a live tree. One option
is a live tree that still has
roots. These can be used
indoors in a pot and planted
outside after the holiday
season. These are typically
smaller trees since a large tree
would require too large a pot
and would not survive the
transplanting well. Most local
nurseries or garden centers
can supply a nice evergreen in
a pot suitable for growing in
our area. Be sure to put it near
a sunny window since it still is
a living tree.
Some people go out on the
farm and cut a tree from the
fence row. If you choose to cut
a tree yourself, do not cut
trees from State parks, wildlife
preserves, and other public
property (or someone else's
private property without their
permission). Make the saw cut
is as low as possible on the
trunk since you will need to
cut another inch off the base
of the trunk when you get
home before placing the'tree
in water.
Christmas trees are also
grown in commercial tree
farms. They are planted in
rows so weeds and insects can
be controlled. The trees are
pruned or sheared regularly
with large machete-like knives
to give them that conical
shape we typically see. It may
take 7 to 12 years to grow a
seven-foot tree. Some
Christmas tree farms sell
directly to the public and allow
you to pick and cut your own
tree. Take a picnic and make it
a family outing.
When purchasing a live tree
that has already been cut,
select the freshest tree
available. The needles should
appear green and healthy.
Shaking or bouncing the tree
should not result in the loss of
very many needles (except
some older ones on the
Check the tree for insects,
spiders or any other
unwelcome hitchhikers.
Shake or bounce the tree
outdoors to dislodge any
unwanted "residents." A blast
from the water hose may be
used if needed. If the tree is
already indoors and insects
are detected or sticky drops
are found on the presents
underneath the tree, use an
aerosol insecticide labeled for

When the children are
complaining of boredom, take
them to Gainesville's museum.
Special to the Reporter
he next cold, rainy Sunday
afternoon, when the kids are
complaining there's nothing to
do, take a trip to Gainesville to
the Museum of Natural History
at the University of Florida, and
the afternoon will just fly by.
I arrived at the museum with
a group of church children, who
all immediately begged to enter
the Northwest Florida: Waterways & Wildlife
Exhibit. Entering the exhibit, you are transported to
the northwest part of the state, where hardwood
hammocks and
limestone caves abound. Before entering the
life-sized limestone cave, there is an interactive
exhibit with the plants, animals, insects and birds
that frequent the area.
The museum challenges visitors to find the series
of flora and fauna that can be found in the exhibit,
with secret nooks and crannies to make the search
The exhibits explain the relationships between
the plants and wildlife and will teach even the most
knowledgeable something new.
Moving through the life-sized limestone cave, the
walls are covered with icky, gooey slime and an
impressive display of stalagmites and stalactites.
There is an interactive search for fossils and cave
dwellers, and the kids had a great time clamoring in
and out of the cavern.
From there, you move through a pitcher plant
bog - where carnivorous plants of the coastal plain
are found - and a Native American trading scene.
A boardwalk of the coastal salt marsh and a
butterfly exhibit complete the educational
experience of Northwest Florida region.
As you travel from Northwest Florida, you pass
through a shark exhibit that will make you
reconsider the next time you take a trip to the
ocean. A series of shark jaws wowed and amazed
the children as they stood before teeth that could
have easily devoured our whole crew.
From there, we traveled to the Florida Fossils:
Evolution of Life & Land Exhibit. While some of this
exhibit features scientific and geological information
that was more than our group could understand, the
amazing display of fossils and depictions of the last
65 million years of Florida's history was fantastic.

Life as a professional

video gamer has its perks

Associated Press

Johnathan Wendel's blue eyes
stare raptly at the computer
screen, his long, thin fingers
gliding the mouse side to side
as he moves through dark
corridors of a video game
where a lethal opponent lurks.
Before long, seemingly with-
out effort, he has annihilated
his foe.
Time to punch out. Another
hard day at work.
Welcome to the basement
'lair of the 24-year-old \Wndc-d,
the man known and feared by
aficionados of multiplayer
games across the globe as
If you deign to think of
video games as simply a child-
ish pastime, consider this pro-
fessional game player. He col-
lects a six-figure salary, has
his own brand of gaming mer-
chandise and travels the
world to compete - regarded
by those in the know as one of
the most gifted players of his
"It's ffn to play games for a
living," says Wendel. "Getting
up every day is very easy."
If professional video
gamers have a knight-errant,
Fatality is he.
As gaming leagues have

developed and small fortunes
are made in what has become
a multibillion-dollar business,
this lanky blond has become
the face of what fans refuse to
classify as anything other than
a sport.
"I'm doing something no
one else has ever done
before," Wendel said during a
break from practice for the
Cyberathlete Professional
League World Tour Grand
Finals that begin Sunday in
New York, where first place
would win him a $150,000
check. "I'm kind of a
In social status terms, ,some
may consider video gaming to
be in a class with professional
poker or competitive eating.
But Wendel is among those
who hope to see it become as
American as, well, baseball.
That idea horrifies some, as
Angel Munoz found when he
launched the Cyberathlete
Professional League - the
first organization of its kind -
eight years ago.
Munoz quit investment
banking to follow his dream.
He thought the league a great
idea but couldn't seem to even
persuade his wife.
"She said, This is why you
quit investment banking? To
do this crazy thing?"' he
recalled. "I couldn't convince

even the gamers."
That's beginning to change.
Tens of thousands turn out
each year at tournaments
around the world as both seri-
ous gamers and doting fans.
Major corporations including
Intel Corp., Samsung
Electronics Co. and the maker
of Tylenol are becoming spon-
sors. And video game enthusi-
asts are no longer seen as
socially inept geeks.
Wendel's journey to the
Nokia Theatre in Times
Square - where he'll face off
against other individual play-
ers in a "first-person shooter"
game called Painkiller and
hope to win his 12th major
championship - began
around the age of five, when
his father gave him a
Nintendo system and he first
played Ikari Warriors.
He was hooked.
For a decade, when Wendel
wasn't playing one of the
many sports he pursued, he
was gaming. He wondered if
he could make a life out of it.
"I know I'm pretty good,"
he told himself. "But can I
hang with the pros?"
Around the age of 15, he
started taking home prizes
from local competitions. At 18,
he entered his first
professional tournament in

Concerned daughter wants

to help mom lose weight

teenage girl with an obese
mother. She doesn't exercise
much. She started going to
the gym about a month ago,
but since has stopped. She's
what you'd call a habitual
snacker. At night she'll finish
eating one unhealthy food and
then begin eating another.
(She often eats more than
1,500 calories in one of her
nightly "snacks.")
To make matters worse, she
eats in front of the TV and
makes me fetch her food
rather than walking to the
kitchen herself. When I try to
talk to her about her bad
habits, she gets defensive and
angry. I want her to lose
weight and am willing to help
her. How can I confront my
mom about her problem? -
HELP: You are a caring and
concerned daughter, and for
that you deserve to be
praised. However, no one can
"help" your mother until she's
willing to admit she has a
problem. The behavior you
described isn't "evening
snacking"; it's binging. Until
she's ready to confront what is
eating HER, she will not stop
trying to fill the emptiness
inside with food.
Rather than confronting
your mother yourself, enlist

Abigail Van Buren

the help of a close friend or
family member. If your. moth-
er agrees, her next step
should be to check the phone
book for the listing of the
nearest chapter of Overeaters
Anonymous. They charge no
dues or fees, and no member-
ship lists are kept. There is no
shaming, no weighing in and
no embarrassment. The only
requirement for membership
is a desire to stop eating com-
pulsively. When your mother
attends a meeting, she'll be
welcomed with open arms
into a fellowship of compas-
sionate women and men who
all share her problem.
There are more than 8,000
Overeaters Anonymous
groups worldwide and chap-
ters in almost every city.
However, if your mother has
difficulty locating one, help
her by visiting www.overeater- or sending a
long, self-addressed, stamped
envelope to OA World Service
Office, P.O. Box 44020, Rio
Rancho, NM 87174-4020.

ARIES (March 21-April
19): Avoid any squabbles
with friends or family. Take
care of your responsibilities
without being asked. Money
will come your way if your
intentions and motives are
good. **
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Have some faith in your-
self and what you can do.
Being nice and offering what-
ever you can to help others
should be your intent. Don't
be impulsive when it comes to
spending. ****
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Follow your basic
instincts when it comes to a
deal or job prospect. Move for-
ward with your plans, prepar-
ing to present what you have
come up, with. Your keen
sense of timing will enable
you to pick the best time to
get other people on board,
making your . proposal
successful. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Emotional ups and
downs will let others see and

know how caring you really
are. You need to get involved
in activities that will spark
your creative imagination. A
change in your lifestyle may
come as a surprise to the peo-
ple to whom you are closest.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Keep your thoughts a secret
today. Your observations may
change your mind drastically,
and you wouldn't want to jeop-
ardize your chance to follow a
new path. Making a move will
be to your benefit. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): You are up for change in
your personal life. Take a look
at your situation and, if it isn't
working for you, do whatever

better. You may want to re-
evaluate some of your
relationships. ****
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): You won't be able to fool

DEAR ABBY: My husband
and I have a friend, "Jon," who

blame you for being furious.
Perhaps you should inform
"Jon" that if he doesn't return
the money, you will inform the
fraud unit of your local police
department. There is more to
setting up a nonprofit than
putting out your hand and say-
ing you're starting one; legal
steps must be taken that
appear to have been "over-
looked." So stick to your guns,
and if it means the end of the
"friendship," you won't have
lost much.

following the best course for
you. Don't make the mistake
of bending to what others
want you to do. Follow your
heart. **
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): You are likely to be mys-
tified by your good fortune,
but now isn't the time to walk
around too shocked to take
advantage of the good things
happening. You can have
whatever you strive for if you
go the distance. *****
Dec. 21): Make yourself
heard if you really want to see
something come to fruition in
your personal life. It's up to
you to make things happen.
Waiting around for others will
be futile. ***
Jan. 19): Take a break and
do something nice for your-
self. Focus on love and
romance. The people you care
about the most will be happy
to enjoy the time you take off
to be with them. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Stop pretending
that everything is fine just the
way it is. Dead ends should
motivate you to make some
drastic alterations. This can
be a new beginning for you if
you make a few changes.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Your ability to move
from one thing to another will
be to your advantage. A
chance to socialize with peo-
ple who interest you will
result in some interesting
points of view. *****

Auction helps stranded jazz artists

months after Hurricane
All the 21-year-old trumpeter
has now is a temporary home,
a donated horn and a chance to

On Wednesday night, the
Jazz Foundation of America
,held an auction to help Batiste
and hundreds of other hurri-
cane-displaced musicians with

food, clothes, housing and jobs.
Among those playing at the
fundraiser was 95-year-old
tenor saxophonist Max Lucas,
who once performed with
Louis Armstrong, and 91-year-
old alto saxophonist Fred
Staton, who played with Art
Blakey, Count Basie and Billy
On the auction block were
more than 50 jazz treasures
ranging from Miles Davis' boa
constrictor snakeskin jacket to
the Boesendorfer grand piano
from Manhattan's Blue Note
club. The auction raised more
than $300,000 Wednesday
night, with Davis' jacket fetch-
ing $13,000; bidding on some

items, including the Blue Note
piano, was to continue online
for another week.
A 1961 New York Times
photo showing Armstrong
playing for his wife in front of
the pyramids in Giza, Egypt,
sold for $1,600. A vocal coach-
ing session from Roberta Flack
went for $5,000, and a jazz
piano lesson from Billy Taylor
went for $2,500.
The presale estimates
ranged from $200 for the
Times photo to $65,000 for the
Blue Note piano.
The online component of the
fundraiser -also offered the
chance to record a track with
the bass player and drummer

for Jimi Hendrix's original
Band of Gypsies.
Members of the Hot 8 Brass
Band - Batiste and nine other
young men whose edgy new
jazz was at the heart of pre-
Katrina New Orleans - were
flown in for the evening at the
B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in
Times Square. The band previ-
ously performed a New

BOSTON - In a certain

Spaceships flit between plan-

out robot and clone armies,
and circuitry keeps alive the
Empire's greatest villain.
Here on earth, though,
more conventional forces are
at work than in the Star Wars
series. There's no gravity-
defying Force to help change
a tire, no light sabers for
pruning the bushes, and no
landspeeders in the garage
for a late-pight pizza run.

“When we got there, it was 17 below zero before the inaugura-tion,” she said, referring to her-self and her late husband, Ralph Powers, a former head of the Florida Road Board and a major player in Florida politics at the time. “The night before we went to a governors’ reception... We looked up and here comes Jack Kennedy. He came over to where I was standing and shook my hand.” Later that night, then-U.S. Senator George Smathers threw an after-party at his house full of dancing and celebration that lasted well into the wee hours of the morning, she said. “Ralph and I did a waltz alongside Jack and Jackie,” she said. “He was a very good dancer.” Then came Nov. 22, 1963.Frank Powers, 23 at the time, was preparing to graduate boot camp in Cape May, N.J. when his commanding officers ordered the recruits to head to their barracks and pack their bags. “We didn’t know what was going on at first. We thought we were going to war,” he said. Then their commanding officer broke the news. The presi-dent had been shot in Dallas. “We were all shocked. The whole camp was in mourning. Nobody really know what we were going to do,” he said. A short time later, he and his company were sent to Maryland to prepare for the six-mile long funeral procession. Powers marched just yards in front of the president’s caisson (the cart carrying the cas-ket)—the same one used during Abraham Lincoln’s funeral 98 years earlier. “What really stood out in my mind was the quietness,” he said. “There were thousands of people on each side of the street, but you could hear a pin drop. It was extraordinarily quiet.” Once they crossed the Potomac River and reached Arlington, his group was placed at ease during the burial cer-emony. “It was very powerful to see the guns and aircraft flying over, Air Force One and all the military planes flying in salute,” he said. “The whole thing was almost surreal considering that my parents were at his inau-guration and here I was at his funeral.” Lake City ReporterSUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2013 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.50 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM Tigers win, Indians lose in playoffs.

Authorities do not know whether the woman was dead before she was struck by the vehicle, officials said Saturday. Sarah Jean Edenfield, 32, of Lake City, died in the incident, which occurred around 10:42 p.m. Friday on Lake Jeffery Road. Tracy Hisler-Pace, Florida Highway Patrol Troop B public information offi-cer, said Edenfield’s body will be sent to the medical examiner’s office to deter-mine the cause of death and the results should be back in about six to eight weeks. According to FHP reports, April Jade Moore, 20, of Olustee, was driv-ing a 2008 Chevrolet HHR southbound on Lake Jeffery Road (County Road 250) approaching the intersec-tion of Scenic Lake Drive.

Kennedy the night before his inauguration and his untimely demise in the streets of Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. Her son, former Coast Guard reservist Frank Powers, described the six-mile march he and his company made escorting the president’s casket to its final resting place in Arlington National Cemetery as “surreal.” STEVEN RICHMOND /Lake City ReporterHelena Powers thumbs through a limited edition book abo ut John F. Kennedy she received when she and her late husband R alph Powers attended his 1961 inauguration. By STEVEN RICHMOND | JFK continued on 8A By AMANDA I n the days leading up to Typhoon Haiyan’s landfall in the central Philippines, Steve Roberts and his wife, Rosalinda, were glued to the televi-sion — waiting. “We were wondering if it was going to let up, if it was going to turn, where was the eye going to go — all of the same ques-tions you would have if it was going to land here,” Roberts said. “It’s not easy to get off those islands, like you would think, when they call for an evacuation. So then, after it happened, not being able to get a hold of family members was concern-ing.” A member of Lake City’s Filipino American Cultural Society, Rosalinda Roberts has family in the Philippines, including her brother. She isn’t the only one with family struggling to recover from Haiyan’s aftermath. For days after the disaster, families in America couldn’t reach their rela-tives on the other side of the world. But then, calls and texts started trickling in, mostly with bittersweet news. People were safe, but homes were destroyed. “It will take years for the Philippines to recover from this,” said local FACS member Incos Smith. “The problem is that everything was flattened out. There are no buildings, no electric-ity poles. They’re pretty much rebuilding the whole community from scratch.” To help the Filipino communities hit the hardest, FACS is already boxing relief goods to ship abroad. Baby bottles, diaper cream, pocket-sized Lysol, Dove soap, clothes, canned goods and more have already been placed in boxes, ready and wait-ing to be shipped to the hometowns of local mem-bers.

Even though we pre sume that the body found is that of Gerardo Nales, investigators are pending official identification from the Medical Examiners Office, Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said in a statement. The presumed body of 42-year-old Nales was found in an area of man groves around 10:30 a.m., Zabaleta said. A day ear lier, police air and water units were scouring the sea and had expanded their search area because of currents and wind. The pilots identity has not been released, nor has the intended destination of the plane. Authorities said there were only two people on board. The pilot of the Piper PA 46 called for help Thursday afternoon, radioing may day, mayday, mayday and telling an air traffic control ler that a door was open and a passenger had fallen from the plane. The aircraft had just taken off from Tamiami Executive Airport, located south of Miami. 11-year-old killed in scooter crash ST. PETERSBURG An 11-year-old girl has died after a scooter acci dent in southwest Florida. St. Petersburg police say Sonia Savage and a friend were riding scooters Friday when Sonia didnt look both ways before crossing the street. She crashed into a truck and was run over by the left rear wheel of the vehicle. The girl was taken to the hospital where she later died from her inju ries.

On pace for record tourism TAMPA Florida is on pace to have a record year for tourism, Gov. Rick Scott said Friday. About 22.9 million visi tors came to Florida in the third quarter of 2013, which is an increase of 1.7 percent over the same period in 2012. Gov. Rick Scott announced the tourism numbers during a news conference at Busch Gardens and said his goal is for the state to reach 100 million visitors. Scott, who is running for re-election, tied the rise in tourism to job creation. Tourism creates a whole bunch of jobs in our state, said Scott, adding that for every 85 visitors, one job is created. Scott, who was joined by officials from Visit Florida and Visit Tampa Bay the state and regions tourism marketing groups said more visitors came to the state between July and September of this year than any other third quar ter in the states history. Visitor spending in Florida between January and August 2013 was $51.8 billion, officials said. There have been a total of 72.6 million visi tors to the state through September. Some of Floridas tour ism growth is coming from overseas visitors. There were 2.9 million in the third quarter, represent ing a 10.1 percent increase over the same period in 2012. Weve got the best tour ism product in the world, he said. Man gets 12 yrs. for house crash JACKSONVILLE A Jacksonville man who killed a teenage girl when he crashed his minivan into her bedroom has been sen tenced to 12 years in prison. A Duval County judge sentenced 52-year-old Ismet Sijamhodzic on Thursday after he pleaded guilty to vehicular homi cide. Sijamhodzic told police he hadnt slept for three days before the night in August 2012 when he ran a stop sign at the end of a Jacksonville road, went through a concrete wall and crashed into 17-yearold Janay Jacksons home. An arrest report said there were no indications he attempted to stop or steer the van to avoid impact. No skid marks were evident at the scene. A blood test showed Sijamhodzic had Xanax in his system, but he didnt have a prescription. Area newspapers report that trace amounts of marijuana also were found. SAN FRANCICO A 5-year-old Northern California boy who has battled leukemia for years became a darling of social media and attracted thousands of fans at home and around the country including the president as he took on the persona of his favorite superhero. Dressed in Batmans signature cape and mask, Miles Scott faced foe after foe around San Francisco on Friday, drawing huge crowds and fulfilling his greatest wish in the process. The White House sent out a tweet encouraging Batkid to Go get em! and in a video recording, President Barack Obama said, Way to go, Miles! Way to save Gotham! Batkid was called into service by Police Chief Greg Suhr and spent the day zooming from one crime scene to the next. Accompanied by an adult Batman impersonator, Batkid rescued a damsel in distress from cable car tracks, captured the Riddler as he robbed a bank, and saved the San Francisco Giants mascot Lou Seal from the Penguins clutches. Miles was able to fulfill his wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the city and volunteers who stepped forward to help. Batkid had a police escort worthy of a dignitary as he sped around the city in a black Lamborghini with Batman decals, with officers block ing traffic and riding alongside him on motorcycles. I think it might be the first time a Lamborghini had a booster seat, said Patricia Wilson, the executive director for Make-a-Wish in the Greater Bay Area. JR Smith finds Twitter trouble again NEW YORK J.R. Smith might be in trouble again because of Twitter. The New York Knicks guard, who was fined $25,000 by the NBA last year for a racy tweet, had a new problem Thursday after an exchange with Detroits Brandon Jennings that appeared to include a threat. Im always in trouble with Twitter, Smith said before the Knicks played Houston. I dont know what it is. Trying to shake it. His latest issue started Wednesday after Jennings made a critical com ment about Smiths little brother, Chris, who also plays for the Knicks. Jennings noted that Chris Smith is in the NBA though Pooh Jeter and Bobby Brown arent. J.R. Smith, saying he is tired of people disre specting his little brother, responded with a couple of tweets, the one that appeared threatening toward Detroit later taken down. But Smith denied any bad intent, saying he and Jennings have played together in the summer and had a good relationship. Theres a way to threaten some body and thats not the way, to pub licly threaten somebody, Smith said.

Melody Faith Luke, 34, 196 SW Kirby Ave., was charged with criminal mischief, trespass-ing and aggravat-ed bat-tery in connec-tion with the case. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $27,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriff’s Office reports, Cpl. Jennifer Wolf responded to a home on SW State Road 247 to investigate an aggravated battery case and met a man who told him he had been sprayed in the face with what he believed was bug spray by an unknown woman. The victim told Wolf the woman had been up to his home about 30 min-utes prior to him being sprayed, around 9:15 p.m., when she knocked on his door and asked if he had her cat. The victim said he and his wife thought the woman was gone for the night, but returned 30 min-utes later and sprayed him in the face with a can of bug spray. The victim said he did not need treatment from emergency medical services. The victim and his wife said the woman also van-dalized their vehicle. Wolf reported, “It was apparent it had been sprayed with some sort of bug spray based on the odor coming from the vehicle. The bug spray can be seen as an off-white liquid substance on the windows and all around the vehicle.” While the victims were speaking with Wolf, deputy Charles Vaughn found the suspect, who was identi-fied as Luke by her father. The victim was taken to Luke’s home where he reportedly identified her as the person who sprayed him. Luke was arrested and taken to jail and the depu-ties reportedly found a can of roach spray in the back of the truck at the home were Luke was found. Luke Juveniles face charges after crash that injured 2 agnum PSI fires T-shirts into crowds and fires students up about learning By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThree Clay County runaways, two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old, were taken into custody by Columbia County sheriff’s dep-uties after the SUV they were driving crashed into a pickup truck with deputies in pursuit. Two Lake City residents in the pickup suffered minor injuries in the crash, reports said. The driver of the vehicle, who was 13, was charged with having no driver’s license, no proof of insurance and fleeing the scene of a crash, reports said. The Lake City Reporter chose not to publish the juveniles’ names due to their ages. According to FHP, the juveniles, all from Middleburg, were traveling south on SW Pinemount Road fleeing Columbia County Sheriff’s deputies in a 2007 Toyota SUV. Jeremy Wayne Boyett, 43, and Heather Lee Boyett, 35, both of Lake City, were headed west on U.S. Highway 90 in a 2003 Toyota Tundra, stopped at the red light at the intersection of U.S. 90 and SW Pinemount Road. The traffic signal turned green and Boyett proceeded through the intersection when the 13-year-old ran the red light, causing the front of the Tundra to strike the right side of the SUV. After the crash all three teenagers fled the vehicle but were later apprehended by Columbia County Sheriff’s Office deputies, according to FHP. None were injured in the crash. Pace said the SUV was not reported stolen but the juveniles may face additional charges from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. By AMANDA LEGO-like gears, scraps of metal and computer parts dot the Engineering Technology class-room at Columbia High School, where the Robotics Team spent two months constructing their newest addition — a shirt-throw-ing, confetti-flinging robot called Magnum PSI. Since Magnum PSI’s completion days prior to the CHS Homecoming game, the robot has visited football games, fall festivals and local elementary schools. “We’ve always tried to do outreach in the community... but in building this, now people are coming to us,” said Engineering Technology teacher Celena Crews. “I’m getting a couple e-mails a week from people asking us if we can bring the robot.” In a couple of weeks, Magnum PSI and the Robotics Team will be at Summers Elementary School for Space Night, where they will use the robot to get children excited about what they can do with sci-ence and math. Every year, the team competes in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition, a national event to inspire young people’s inter-est and participation in science and technology. But during the spring build-season, when they are rushing to get a robot ready for the competition, there isn’t much time to experiment with new techniques. “Every January, we get the game design, and we have six weeks to design, build and test a 120-pound robot,” Crews said. “Earlier this year, we said we were going to do one during our off-season.” She wanted her students to learn how to use pneumatics — the study and application of pressur-ized gas to produce mechanical motion — and transmission on their robotic creations. The robot can fire T-shirts approximately 200 feet, into stadium stands or over the stands, if they want. “Those are the things that held us back in previous years because we didn’t take them on,” Crews added. According to Dugan Dotson, Robotics Team captain, the T-shirt cannon allowed the students to test unused methods and an experimental metal during the less hectic off-season. When try-ing to complete a robot in time for the yearly competition, stu-dents do not have extra time to devote to complicated techniques. Magnum PSI also allowed stu-dents who normally participate in the non-technical aspects of the team to get hands-on. “We do all our work for other classes,” Dugan said. “But as soon as the bell rings, it’s all robotics until the dead of night.” Organized in 2011, the Robotics Team gained such success Crews was able to start the Engineering Technology classes. She now offers all three levels required to meet industry standards, so stu-dents can graduate high school with a certification. Students can earn certifications in a 2D-model-ing program, AutoCAD; 3D-mod-eling program, SolidWorks; and LabVIEW, a graphical program-ming language. Formerly an aero-space engineer with NASA, Crews moved to Lake City with her hus-band and had to leave her job. She began teaching — and now offers three engineering courses, a cal-culus class and a physics class. “It has me back in engineering,” Crews said. “Now I just have to engineer students, instead of a spacecraft and such.” Many of her students plan to pursue a degree in engineer-ing after they leave high school, prepared with information from Crews’ classroom. “They’ve been told since they were little: ‘Oh, you like to play with LEGOS — you should be an engineer,’” Crews said. “But if you ask them what a specific field of engineering does, they usually don’t know. So this gives them an opportunity to experience what different engineers do. They can figure out what they’re most inter-ested in and pursue that.” Until last year, Dugan played football. But during his freshman year, the robotics team drove their robot onto the field to test it — and he decided to be a part of the Engineering Technology program. “I didn’t really know what I was getting into,” Dugan added. “But it turned out to be an awesome experience.” He plans to major in either mechanical or electrical engineer-ing. Fellow Robotics Team member Brayden Thomas also plans to major in engineering, though he hasn’t settled on a specific field yet. Ever since he was a child, he’s always loved construction. “What really sparked my interest was when I got my first LEGO set as a little kid,” Brayden said. “I always loved the idea of taking a bunch of little pieces and turning them into something bigger.” The LEGO sets soon became more complicated. As Brayden grew, he would build 1,000-piece LEGO sets in a matter of 20 min-utes. “Soon LEGOs became uncool, and I found my new love of robot-ics in ninth grade,” Brayden added.The Columbia High School robotics program has acquired a 3-D printer, which can make household items like a salt and pepper shaker and a couple wrenches. The class even tested out an Apple iPhone case with workable gear cogs.

Rocky Dean Martin, 30, was drinking with his girlfriend of six months at the local bar Hanger 7 Thursday evening before returning to the woman’s residence later that night, the arrest report said. The victim said Martin began “saying things under his breath” before the cou-ple entered into a verbal argument, the report said. As things got heated, Martin allegedly slapped her in the face and attempt to “twist” her head off, telling her she would “never leave him.” The woman responded by biting Martin on the arm and grabbing his male parts in self defense, the report said. The woman was able to lock herself in a nearby bed-room and contact authori-ties, at which time Martin left the residence and locked himself in a nearby vehicle, authorities said. Deputies said Martin was unresponsive when they tried to make contact with him. Martin then left the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot before loosing his footing on wet grass, at which point law enforce-ment were able to detain him, the report said. Martin was booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $28,678 bond. He faces charges of simple assault, resisting an officer without violence and battery.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of the Philippines – and with those in the Filipino American com-munity of Lake City, as they labor to provide sustenance and aid to their loved ones and compatriots in the wake of a terrible calamity. It appears no one with direct local ties died due to Typhoon Haiyan, the worst storm ever to hit the island nation. But more than a week later, the suffering there seems nearly insurmountable. Thousands dead, two million displaced.“Displaced” is a clinical-sounding term that refers to people whose homes have been destroyed and have been left with little or no food and likely no clean water. It is a horrific plight, and help still hasn’t reached many of those hardest hit. Folks here are doing their part, and you can too, if you wish.

In 1973, President Nixon told Associated Press managing editors meeting in Orlando: “People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook.” Teaching evolution promotes bullying To the Editor:I wonder how many of us have ever been bullied? I know I have. The memories of being bullied in school may still come fresh in your minds like they are still on mine. There is more than one way we can be bullied. The Bible tells of non-verbal physical bullying as when Cain bullied Abel to death. Then there is verbal bullying (II Kings 2:23-24) when 42 boys called Elisha the prophet a bald head. A comeuppance or payback may eventfully come to a bully but that does not take away the pain we suf-fer when we are bullied. So how does this relate to evolution in the public schools compared to the Holy Bible? Well, does not evolution teach survival of the fittest? It is sort of like the game called “King of the Hill.” The strong survive and the weak get pushed off to the side. In school, the bullies are more often than not stronger, older, bigger, more in number, and able to come up with a bullying remark with a single sentence that describes some weak characteristic of us. Many bullies are clever. They know how to bully verbally and get your goat and get away with it. Then they smile or laugh at your reaction and sometimes get others to laugh with them. Bullying is a sin but teaching of evolution has bullied the Bible right out of the public school classroom as a Book of authority. When this happened it opened the floodgates to bullying and it is a constant struggle to stem the tide. What is the best countermeasure for this? It is the Holy Bible. What happened to one of the biggest, meanest, foul-mouthed bullies who could dunk a basketball standing flat-footed in his bare feet? Well, he proudly mouthed off with foul language. The Philistine Goliath cursed David by his gods. The result was that this big bully got stoned, resulting in Excedrin head-ache 109. (I Samuel 17) He should have quit while he was ahead, that is while he still had a head attached to his neck. Bullies do not like to be taught that the God is looking over their shoulder. Teach the golden rule. “Do to oth-ers whatever you would like them to do to you.” (Matthew 7:12) Kenny MerrikenLake CityFriday night lights return homeT here’s nothing better than a high school foot-ball game in your town in mid-November. It’s a sign you’re in the presence of a budding champion. It’s playoff time and, even better, it’s the second round. Get ready, Lake City. It’s our time as fans to rally and celebrate in the chill of a mid-November’s night this Friday as our Columbia High School Tigers return home to host Bartram Trail from Jacksonville in the second round of the Class 6A playoffs. It doesn’t get any better.Speculation was that CHS would have to win its first two playoff games on the road to possibly have a shot at hosting in the third round, but the other bracket didn’t neces-sarily play out as anticipated. Bartram Trail put the smack down on Ed White High, 50-20, on Friday night. Bartram Trail (the Bears) was 5-5 in the regular season (6-5 now) and 3-1 in their district. They took the show on the road to Ed White and hammered the Commanders – the team that gave Columbia its only loss this season. Ed White won our district champi-onship in the regular season. Our Tigers (10-1) did their part Friday night by dominating St. Augustine, 42-24. So Columbia gets chance to uphold district honor and play a team that is explosive and unpre-dictable. Will the Bears five-loss team show up or will it be the world-beaters that put on a show on Friday night? Columbia will be ready to play and ready for any-thing. This is what makes high school football so streaky, unpredictable and fantastic to watch. A group of 16-18 year old kids carry their entire year’s work and prepara-tion, not to mention the hopes and dreams of the parents and fans, into the second round. If you want to feel that sense of community pride and place I spoke of last week, go to the Tigers game and cheer on our team. You will see people you haven’t in a long time, maybe meet new friends, and see one of the best high school football programs in the state. Coach Brian Allen is a great leader and a positive role model for the young men in our community. Allen teaches fundamen-tal football skills, but he also teaches character skills to his players. The Tigers need the community to continue to rally behind them. Celebrate all that is right about quality high school football play-off time in the South. The team brought the playoffs back to us with a first-round win. Let’s support our Tigers on Friday night and help them move on to the third round of the playoffs for the second straight year.

In the meantime, millions of consumers had their private plans cancelled or were warned that they faced cancellation because the plans did not meet the standards of the Affordable Care Act. Taking much longer than he should have, Obama relented and agreed to allow the insurance companies to continue selling the policies the administration deemed inadequate for another year. If we are to have a health-care system comparable to other wealthy, developed countries -and we’re running behind the curve -Obama has to get this right. It’s not as if there is something better in waiting; there is nothing in waiting if this law doesn’t succeed. Q Scripps Howard News Service4AOPINION

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2013 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-04246A High schools battle it out at FGCBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe halls of Florida Gateway College’s mathematics and science building were brimming with activ-ity Friday. Students from 29 Florida and Georgia high schools were there competing in the 2013 Florida Gateway College High School Invitational Brainbowl Competition. Poised with electronic buzzers in their hands, and hopefully the correct answers in their heads, the students fielded questions in a variety of subject areas. Whether it was questions about the four chambers of the heart, alternate names for the Roman government or the author of a particular series of books, the stu-dents faced a variety of questions on different subject and topics in the round-robin competition. Suwannee High School senior Zac Messcher was one of the vet-erans on his school’s team, having been on the team for the past three years. “The contest is really fun and I get to learn new information,” he said. “Through this contest, you get cultured from the knowledge you learn from the questions and from studying what you need to know.” Messcher said he and his teammates practiced for an hour, two days a week to prepare for the contest. Michael Pate, the Suwannee High brainbowl team advisor, said the team was doing well and he believed they were well prepared for Friday’s competition. “We’ve been practicing since school began and we have a lot of experience,” he said. “Some of the members of the team have been doing this for several years and one member of the team is new, but we’re coming along.” Pate said an academic contest such as this provide a real benefit to students. “It’s not fun to practice all the time and you’ve got to have tournaments to be matched against other students to see how you’re doing and to keep you motivated,” he said. “We like to do the tourna-ments at least a month or so to keep us motivated throughout the year.” TONY BRITT /Lake City ReporterAucilla Christian students compete against Suwannee High students during the high school brainbowl competition at Florida Gateway College on Friday.From staff reportsFlorida Gateway College has been award-ed one of the prestigious Chancellor’s Best Practice Awards for its use of tech-nology in education. FGC was recognized for its use of virtual tech-nology to enable student learning, utilizing the BodyViz software. The award was announced Wednesday at the 64th Annual Association of Florida Colleges Convention. “The Chancellor’s Best Practice Awards give much-deserved recogni-tion to exceptional pro-grams and allow each of our colleges to learn from proven strategies that will raise the level of per-formance for the entire college system,” said Florida College System Chancellor Randy Hanna. Through BodyViz, anat-omy and physiology students can view and manipulate real-life CT and MRI images in a 3-D environment. “The awarding of the Chancellor’s Exemplary Best Practice Award is one of the highest one can receive in the state of Florida,” said FGC President Chuck. “But beyond receiving this prestigious award, we’re very excited to be able to offer this program at Florida Gateway College to prepare our students for programs in medical sci-ence, health sciences, and any other areas that deal with human anatomy and physiology as they chart their future careers.”College garners top state award Giving children a better ChristmasBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAlthough he’s only 15 years old, Storm Ford has a heart for giving and a way of organizing toy collection drives to benefit needy chil-dren his age. Since he was seven, he’s collected toys for needy children. The last three years Ford has col-lected toys for the Florida Children’s Home Society. Ford’s tradition will continue this year when he puts on his inaugural Skating for Santa Toy Collection Drive. The toy collection drive will take place Saturday, Nov. 30 from 6 8 p.m. at the Skating Palace, 357 NW Hall of Fame Drive. Toys collected during the drive will benefit local youth at the Children’s Home Society of Florida. “The toys are for children that wouldn’t have a Christmas,” he said. Ford said the he’s been collecting toys throughout the year and started tak-ing donations earlier this month. The toy collection drive will culminate with the event at the skating center. Now a freshman at Fort White High School, last year, as a middle school student, Ford held the “Fill-A-Blazer” toy collection drive where he and stu-dents donated enough toys to fill his mother’s SUV. People who want to donate toys for this year’s toy collection drive can bring an unwrapped, new toy to the skate palace, along with a $3 donation. Ford also has toy collection boxes at the Fort White High School office, the Lake City Advertiser and at the Florida Children’s Home Society office i n Lake City. “I started the toy collection drives when I was 7 years old and I had an old bike and I decided to give it away,” he said. “We’re hold-ing the toy collection event on Nov. 30 because it’s the day after Black Friday and people will have gone shop-ping, hopefully.” Inga Dwyer, Ford’s mother, who helps with the collection drive, said he’s able to buy gifts for the toy collection throughout the year with money from his allowance given to him by his father, James Dwyer, and money from his grand-mother, Cecile Holmgren, who also donates gifts. “I would love to be able to match what we did last year as this year’s goal,” she said. “The goal is to get at least enough toys to make 100 children a Christmas.” TONY BRITT /Lake City ReporterStorm Ford, a Fort White High School freshman, puts toys in a Skating For Santa toy collection box at the school.

Saluting veterans By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comVeterans from World War II all the way to Operation Enduring Freedom were honored with a barbe-cue luncheon at Haven Hospice of Suwannee Valley Community Room on Saturday. More than 30 veterans attended the event and some brought their families. Honoring veterans is nothing new in Columbia County, but the style, atten-tion to detail and dignity Hospice staff and Woodmen of the World put into the ceremony were something special. In addition to the luncheon, the veterans were given miniature flags from their branch of the military as well as pins for their ser-vice. World War II veterans were honored separately. Several of the veterans that attended also signed a flag, which was donated by the Woodmen of the World, which will hang on the wall at Haven Hospice of Suwannee Valley. Sam Peavy, 93, of Live Oak, attended the event with his wife of 63 years, Fern Peavy. Peavy, a World War II Army veteran who served 1940-1945, said he was proud to be able to attend the event with his wife and happy to have an oppor-tunity to spend time with other World War II veter-ans. “It’s an honor to be here and hear everybody’s sto-ries and share the freedom we have,” he said. Ronald Bailey, 86, attended the event with his wife, Becky Bailey, and both said they were happy to be hon-ored at Saturday’s event. Bailey, a World War II veteran, said he didn’t see action in the war because Enola Gay pilot Paul Tibbets dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. “I met him and I thanked him for saving my life and the lives of many of my friends,” Bailey said, not-ing he has signed copy of Tibbets’ book, “Return of the Enola Gay.” Carlos Rainwater, the first Native American to serve as the Executive Director of the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, was the event’s keynote speaker. Rainwater said up to last year, the largest group of American veterans was from World War II, but now that’s changed because an average of 1,200 World War II veterans die each day. He said the Vietnam veterans are now the largest group of American veterans. Although Rainwater’s address covered many top-ics, including the increased role of female troops in the military, he also told about two of his boyhood friends from the Korean War. “Bob,” who was proud to be a soldier and wore his uniform whenever pos-sible, was killed after only two days in combat when he was hit by enemy artil-lery. He also relayed the story about his friend “Ken,” who he described as an “executive type” and very intelligent with a plan to attend Auburn University after he completed his mili-tary service, but had his life altered forever when he was struck by sniper’s bullet that took off half his skull. He survived, but was never the same. “That one North Korean sniper’s bullet destroyed a brilliant mind,” Rainwater said. “It’s been my honor to serve veterans of this coun-try. Veterans made this country what it is today.” 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) LAKE CITY 352-374-4534426 SW Commerce Dr., Suite 130 Call Now & Start Losing Tonight!

7A Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2013 7AHuesman: Agriculture is more than just tractorsBy AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the Reporter FORT WHITE A griculture has been a part of life in Columbia County since its incorporation in 1832. Although the local economy has diversified since then, with tourism, health care and manufacturing grow-ing in prominence, farming and forestry remain important, and in more ways than may meet the eye. Of the 20 largest employers in Columbia County, over half have direct or indirect ties to agriculture through food services, retailing or use of agri-cultural products, agriculture-related education programs, or provision of agriculture-related government services. Few people in Columbia County know the importance of agriculture better than Jill Huesman, who has taught agri-cultural education at Fort White High School since 1997. “My job is to expose children to the variety of careers connected to agriculture,” she says. “A lot of people think agriculture begins and ends with the farmer out on his tractor, and that’s certainly important. But there’s so much more; a person involved in an agricul-ture-related career these days is just as likely to be sitting at a computer desk as on a piece of farm equipment.” A native of Marion County, Huesman traces her love of agriculture and teaching back to participation in her local 4-H Club. “I got started when I was eight and stayed in it through high school,” she recalls. “I showed poultry, competed on judging teams, and met a lot of interesting people. By the time I graduated, I knew I wanted to find a way to share those experi-ences with others.”Life in the classroomAfter graduating from the University of Florida in 1981 with a bachelor of science degree in agricultural education, Huesman considered pursu-ing a master’s degree so that she could work for the county Extension Service, which con-ducts educational training in agriculture, horticulture, family and consumer sciences, and 4-H youth development. But she took a job teaching agricultural education at North Marion High School instead and has been in the classroom ever since. “I’ve never regretted that decision,” she says with a smile. “Working with the kids and watching them succeed is my passion.” Huesman’s passion extends to her sponsorship of the National FFA Organization (formerly the Future Farmers of America) at Fort White High School, which provides the main avenue for her students to gain hands-on experience in various areas of agriculture. She is extremely proud of her FFA students, and rightly so: both the middle school and high school chapters at Ft. White earned three-star rankings in 2012-13, the highest level awarded by the national organization. Huesman’s students also do well locally, as visitors to the recent Columbia County Fair know. This year, Fort White students took six major awards in the beef cattle classes: grand champion beef heifer (Rebecca Bailey), beef heifer senior show-manship (Kimberly Bailey), beef heifer intermediate showman-ship (Jakob Jones), reserve champion steer (Rebecca Bailey), steer senior showman-ship (Kimberly Bailey) and steer intermediate showmanship (Jakob Jones). In addition, Fort White put together a dairy show team for the first time this year and came away with the grand champion dairy heifer (Austin Mattox) and the reserve champion dairy heifer (Allison Deloach), as well as winning top awards for dairy senior showmanship (Aaron Rose) and dairy intermediate showmanship (Allison Deloach). The 2014 Florida State Fair will provide another opportunity for Fort White’s FFA to shine, as eight of Huesman’s students will be showing swine there. These classes aren’t just about ribbons; they provide hands-on training in animal hus-bandry. Cattle in competition“Competitors start with pigs or calves as feeders [young animals that have been weaned from their mothers] and do all the work of raising them until they are ready to be shown. That’s 90 to 110 days for pigs and about six months for cat-tle,” Huesman explains. “In the exhibition classes, the judges look for the animal’s potential meat yield and qual-ity, which they can judge from its build and the way in which it has gained weight. Dairy cattle are judged on their fit-ness for giving milk. In show-manship classes, the exhibi-tors are judged on the way in which they present their animals and on how well they can answer questions about the animals.” Fort White FFA students compete in other arenas as well, among them the annual forestry competition sponsored by the Florida Division of Forestry. The district competition, which takes place in October, com-bines hands-on examinations in dendrology (tree identification), insect and disease identification, map interpretation, tool identifi-cation and timber identification with a written test.” We didn’t have a state team this year,” Huesman says regretfully. “But we had one for 12 straight years before that, and we’ll do it again.” Other important competitions include land judging contests run by the Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts and a middle school vegetable judg-ing event at the University of Florida, events at which mem-bers of Fort White’s middle school FFA collected three state championships in 2012-13. Hosting sub-districtThe National FFA Organziation also holds annual competitions, and this year the Fort White FFA chapters will be hosting the sub-district competi-tions in December at a location to be announced. “It’s a big event, as we’ll be hosting FFA chapters from Columbia, Hamilton, Madison, Jefferson, and Suwannee [coun-ties],” Huesman says. “Students will be competing in tractor driving, parliamentary procedures, carrying out opening and clos-ing ceremonies, prepared public speaking, extemporaneous pub-lic speaking, and creed speaking [ability to recite the FFA creed]. The winners go forward to the district and from there to state. Last year we had a student fin-ish second in the state tractor driving competition.” Huesman admits that getting students seriously interested in agriculture-related careers isn’t as easy as she’d like. “Farming is hard work, and a lot of kids just aren’t interested in putting out that much physi-cal effort,” she says. “But I’m trying to get the word out that you don’t have to be a farmer to be involved – you can run a business that sells agricultural supplies and equipment, develop computer programs for farm management, write advertising copy for agricultural businesses, teach, or become a veterinarian. Agriculture is about more than growing food – it’s about grow-ing people, too.” AVALYN HUNTER /Special to the ReporterJill Huesman, agricultural educator at Fort White High Sch ool and FFA sponsor, is proud of her students’ achievements at the fair as well as their hands-on application of the things they learn in class. ‘Farming is hard work, and a lot of kids just aren’t interested in putting out that much physical effort... But I’m trying to get the word out that you don’t have to be a farmer to be involved. Agriculture is about more than growing food – it’s about growing people, too.’— Jill Huesman, Fort White agriculture teacher By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comMove over Cinderella, Snow White and Rapunzel, you’ve got some competition. Florida Gateway College cosmetology students re-created the look of beloved Disney princesses for local 3-10 year-old girls on Saturday at their semi-annual Princess Party. Aided by little pony tails with pearls, sparkling make-up and a variety of finger-nail colors, the students worked on area youngsters during a fundraiser which left their customers looking like fairy tale characters. Elaine Beamsley brought her four-yearold daughter, Aubrey Beamsley, to the event and patiently watched as her child’s appearance gained princess status in a short while. “I brought her to the Princess Party because my friend invited me here and she was doing hair and make-up, and because little girls always love to be a princess,” Beamsley said. “She absolutely loves it. She likes getting her hair done, her make-up and her nails. She woke up this morning begging, ‘When are we going to leave, when are we going to go?’ She was very excited about it.” Carol McLean, Florida Gateway College cosmetology department head, said her students have held the Princess Party for several years as a fundraiser. “They put on a Princess Party twice a year, bring the little girls in, paint their nails, do their hair, do their make-up and make them feel like a princess,” she said. The event also featured different Disney characters and princesses that showed up in costume to take photographs of the girls who had just gone through the Princess Party beauty treatment. The Princess Party visitors had an option to choose between three princess hairstyles, different facial art designs and several nail colors options. They also received a tiara and toy wand. McLean said close to 20 FGC cosmetology students participated in the event and there were nearly 70 children, about 65 who were schedule as well as walk-ins, who came to the Princess Party. “This helps the students because they are giving services they are required to do before they can go get their state licenses,” McLean said. “This is helping them get their services as well as raise money to help them with their trips to hairshows.” Niki Craft, a Florida Gateway College cosmetology student, said there are train-ing as well as other advantages to hold-ing the Princess Party fundraiser. “This is chance for little girls to come in be treated and a chance for us to raise money for ourselves to attend a confer-ence at the end of the year,” she said. “It’s also a chance for us to get our services in as well as do outreach to the community.” She said working with the youngsters also helps them develop their skills to becoming a professional cosmetologist. “This helps us deal with all ages I think and it also helps be able to differentiate in styles and make-up for different people versus what we’re going to do when we get out in business,” Craft said. “Some are little, some are small, so it helps us out in dealing with different types of styles.” She said there wasn’t too many challenges in working their customers Saturday because they were making the girls look princesses. “Because of us making them feel like a princess, they were pretty happy,” Craft said. “So as long as you made them look pretty, I think they are pretty excited about it, but sometimes they might be a little shy, but it’s never a challenge if you get to make them look pretty.” FGC puts on a fundraiser fit for a princess TONY BRITT /Lake City ReporterEliana Blank, 5, of Lake City, gets help from Florida Gateway College cosmetology student Bethany Schlimmer as she selects a tiara during Saturday’s Princess Party at Florida Gateway College.


8A LAKE CITY REPORTER IN REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2013 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Recollections I was in the fourth grade, Mrs. Johnsons class at Central Elementary, Columbia County Tax Collector Ronnie Brannon said. I had been sent into the hall for talking in class... my friends brother came by and said school was out because the president had been shot. Mrs. Johnson, already upset with Brannon, didnt believe him at first. She got very mad and told me to go back into the hall and stop interrupting, he said. Before I could leave, a teacher came in and told her it was true. Class dis missed. Third Circuit Judge Paul Bryans third-grade teacher asked the class which student lived clos est to the school after a teary-eyed office aide told them the news. I lived two blocks away so I raised my hand. She told me to go home and bring back a radio, Bryan said. I ran as fast as I could. I cut through neighborhoods yards, ran in the door and told my mother. She did not know and got very emotional. His and three other classes huddled around Bryans radio as Walter Cronkite broke the newsPresident Kennedy was dead. It made me plumb sick to my stomach, local NAACP official and local civil rights leader John Mayo said when he heard the news a day after returning to America after 18 months stationed with the Army in Germany. You couldnt believe it. I stood there and just couldnt believe it. Former Mayor James R. Tison declared Monday, Nov. 25 a day of mourning in Lake City, urging citizens to fol low President Johnsons advice that people assemble in their centers of worship and pay their respects. The Lake City Reporter, a weekly news paper in 1963, published on Nov. 22, so that edition contained no information about the assassination that would occur later that day. The Nov. 29 edition released a week later contained only one sen tence dedicated to the assassination on the front page, squeezed into a tiny box at the bottom of the page, describing how Lake City native Sgt. First Class James E. Boyette was assigned to death watch duty over the presidents body in the Capitol rotunda. We also feel deep sorrow for what has hap pened to our president... but we would be playing the role of hypocrite if we attempted to eulogize him as has much of the press, radio and TV, then-editor of the Lake City Reporter Everett Corbin said. Some are already eulo gizing [Kennedy] as the Abraham Lincoln of the 20th century. We cannot go this far, because only history will prove wheth er this is true or not. In lieu of local cover age, families had to find other avenues of informa tion about the presidents death. I remember there was wall-to-wall TV coverage, said former Third Circuit Assistant State Attorney Bob Dekle. People stayed glue to their TV sets to get whatever infor mation they could. Lee Harvey Oswald soon became a house hold name throughout the nation after Dallas police offered him up as the prime suspect in Kennedys assassination. Seeing Jackie Kennedy with blood on her... there are vivid images that will never leave my head, Bryan said. Just talking about it right now brings up a bunch of emotions in me. Then, two days later, Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby fatally shot Oswald as he was being transferred from police headquarters to Dallas County jail. That was live on TV, Lake City Manager Wendell Johnson recalled. It freaked everybody out. You couldnt believe what you were seeing, a live shooting on national TV. Americans finally found a small measure of clo sure as they watched the state funeral that finally put JFK to rest. It was an extremely challenging time, said Tony Buzzella, principal of Shining Star Academy of the Arts. We really felt the loss as a country. It united us. We were all very angry, but there was confusion as well. We didnt know where to place our anger. As the nation moved forward, people found different ways to cope with the loss of their com mander-in-chief. All of a sudden every thing was being named or renamed after Kennedy, former CHS educator and local historian James Montgomery said. Many felt Kennedys death curtailed promis ing changes in American society. It was very sad, Mayo said. We were headed in the right direction. He was there trying to work through differ ent things for civil rights. I think he set the tone and mood for this country to work together and work out our dif ferences. While Kennedys Catholic faith was called into question during his campaign, his presence in the White House set a precedent for years to come. The idea of a Catholic becoming president in a predominantly Protestant nation was amazing, Buzzella said. It showed there were hope and pos sibilities for anyone in America. It was an exciting time. The responsibil ity of moving the nation forward shifted to President Johnson, who took his oath of office on Air Force One in front of Jacqueline Kennedy, still wearing her double-breasted pink wool Chanel suit stained by her husbands blood. It changed America because Johnson... took it upon himself to push through a lot of civil rights legislation and everything else that relates to equal opportunity, said Lake Citys Glenel Bowden, congressional aide to U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Jacksonville). In the black community, it felt like we had a personal relationship with the fam ily. A lot of folks had a portrait of Martin Luther King and JFK side by side in their homes. For some, JFKs leader ship was inextricably tied to events of the early 60s. There were events in our lives that were defined by John. F Kennedy, said Florida Forest Service Wildfire Mitigation Specialist and public information officer Doc Bloodworth. The effect he had on our nation at that time because of the interna tional relations and diplo macy his skills as a dip lomat... The Bay of Pigs and Cuban Missile Crisis were real to us at the time. He was synonymous with them. You couldnt watch the news without his name attached to it. His persona defined those events. Open questions While only five at the time of Kennedys assas sination, County Manager Dale Williams remembers the conflicting views soci ety had of Kennedy. He was the first mod ernist president, history certainly reflects that, Williams said. One reason hes so ingrained into our culture... the ideas he ran on when he was elected were not all that popular at the time. I think alot of people still remember the question of What if? There was tons of speculation. A lot of people put a lot of hope in him, and that was taken away by an assassins bullet. Many unanswered questions, including those surrounding that assassins bullet, still remain in play. The National Archives and Records Administration said theyve released percent of all the docu ments surrounding the death of JFK. However, there still remain 1,171 documents classified by the CIA for national security pur poses. All records in the Kennedy Collection will be opened by 2017 unless cer tified as justifiably closed by the President of the United States, the NARA says on their website. The public is mixed over just what happened and who may have been involved in Kennedys death. Allegations sur rounding the grassy knoll, magic bullet, and connections to Mafia or Soviet involvement abound. I feel it was a conspiracy, County Commissioner Ron Williams said. I dont think [Jack Ruby] killed Kennedys assassin out of revenge. I think he was a man sent to silence the killer. I believe it was all connected. Some think there was more than one gunman in Dallas that day. I didnt believe then or now that Lee Harvey Oswald was the only assassin, Buzzella said. Him being shot was very convenient since there was no trial. I think a lot was swept under the rug. I hope it comes to light. Others think interna tional forces played a roll. I cant recall his name, but there was a CIA operative in Cuba and had connections there, Frank Powers said. He felt very strongly that [Fidel] Castro had a hand in this. Oswald act ing alone is not out of the question for some, either. I think it was prob ably a one-man deal, Montgomery said. Its awful that one person can do such damage to the country, but all other assassinationsLincoln, Garfieldwere one per son. He wanted to do something big in life and thats what he decided to do. I think he was just a mixed-up individual, had a hard life growing up. The Warren Commission hoped to put doubts to rest by conclud ing Oswald as the sole killer responsible, but many werent convinced. When the Warren Commission gave their report, many people looked at it very meticulously and said there were things flawed with it, Bryan said. It will never be completely resolved. Theres enough of an unknown that can never be proven one way or another.

Moore told authorities she swerved left to avoid the person but was unable to do so. Moore’s vehicle struck Edenfield, who is believed to have lived on Scenic Lake Drive, in the southbound lane of the roadway. After impact, Moore turned around and returned to the scene, reports said. Pace said at the time of the accident conditions were dark and slightly foggy. Charges in connection with the wreck are pend-ing completion of a Florida Highway Patrol crash inves-tigation, reports said. Pace said an FHP investigator is attempting to col-lect data about Edenfield and her activities leading up to the incident. “He’s going to look into what happened before the crash,” she said, noting authorities do not know why Edenfield was lying in the roadway. “The investi-gator’s job is to investigate things prior to the crash and things leading up to the crash.” to the Red Cross. Each box can feed a family for a week, and pro-vide hygiene products they may not have access to. As of press time on Friday, the organization had already packed three boxes and raised approxi-mately $250 to donate to Habitat for Humanity. The non-profit will assist in building temporary shel-ters for families who no longer have a home. While the homes may not be beautiful, FACS member Carmelita Mattox said, they will provide a roof for the homeless. Donations poured in from the commu-nity, coming from North Florida Pediatrics, Milla Pediatrics, Epiphany Catholic Church, Florida Department of Transportation, Catholic Charities and community members. “We’re just trying to do our part,” Roberts said. “It’s not the biggest part, but it may mean a lot to someone.” According to the Associated Press, the Philippines’ main disaster response agency raised the death toll Friday to 3,621, up from the previ-ous figure of 2,360. Most of the casualties occurred on Leyte and Samar islands. It said 1,140 peo-ple are missing and more than 12,000 injured. On the Wednesday before the storm landed, Lake City resident Marivic Blackwell chatted online with her sister, and asked her if she was ready for the storm’s incoming force. “Did she have water and food?” Blackwell asked her. “I made sure all the food was cooked because the first thing that’s going to go is the power.” On Thursday, the storm moved closer. Blackwell received another message from her sister that said the wind was starting to pick up — and that was the last Blackwell heard from her until Saturday, Nov. 9. Thankfully, during the wait, a friend sent a Blackwell a message to let her know her sister was all right, but that she had lost power. Word from Blackwell’s family in Ormoc City said water was hard to come by and food was low. “They were having to walk and walk — for I don’t know how many miles — just to get water,” she added. “Yesterday was the first day they got relief goods.” Blackwell gathered donations on her own, separate from the boxes raised by FACS, to carry with her to the Philippines when she travels there around Thanksgiving. Since both FedEx and UPS charge high rates to ship across the world, Blackwell decided it would be cheaper to buy a plane ticket. Her work, Shands in Live Oak, donated enough supplies to fill two 75-pound boxes. “I woke up Monday morning, and said: ‘I just need to do something,’” Blackwell said. “I’ve always wanted to help, but now it’s my hometown.” Many of Mel Gavette’s relatives lost their homes in Jamindan in the Capiz Province. Like many oth-ers in the country, they lost their phone connec-tion, their electricity and their belongings. “They ate noodles,” Gavette said. “They didn’t have any food, but noo-dles.” Prior to the landfall, Gavette worried about her family, but did not expect Haiyan to leave such dev-astation in its wake. While the boxes sent by the Filipino American Cultural Society will take two months to reach their destination, Smith said the community will still need relief supplies. “[Recovery] is an ongoing process,” she said. “We’re just filling what we have right now, and then hopefully we can add more boxes.” The organization is accepting donations in the form of relief goods or cash assistance. Donations can be made over the phone by calling Carmelita Mattox at 386-344-3315. FACS will also be outside of Winn Dixie on Saturday, Nov. 23, to gather dona-tions to send to Habitat for Humanity.

Healthcare officials in Columbia County formed a Community Health Advisory Panel (CHAP) to address the issue and to develop a way local resi-dents can address the overweight and obesity issue. The group has scheduled a forum to provide residents with tips to improve their health through diets, exercise and other healthy practices. The forum will take place Tuesday, Nov. 19, in the Rivers Library and Media Center on the Florida Gateway College campus. Speakers are sched-uled to start at 5:30 5:45 p.m. Attendees may arrive as early as 4:30 p.m. for BMI (Body Mass Index) calculations and blood pressure readings. “The forum is for the community and it’s promoting awareness for obe-sity and Florida’s Healthiest Weight Initiative,” said Margie Rigdon, Columbia County Health Department director of nursing. The event’s keynote speaker will be from the Florida Department of Health in Tallahassee. A local physician, registered dietitian and physical therapist will address the audience during the forum. “They will hi-light some of Florida’s statistics on obesity and some of our local statistics,” said Mark Lander, Columbia County Health Department administrator. “After they are done speaking there will be a question and answer session.” Lander said the event will be videotaped and distributed to local physi-cians and hospitals where it can be used to bring awareness to the local obesity issue. CHAP will meet every quarter and will do videos each quarter. “The CHAP was formed from the Community Health improvement plan that we unveiled in June,” Lander said, noting it was done as a way to improve health in Columbia County. “One of the first goals was to look at healthy weight and obesity.” Forum to offer health information RELIEFContinued From 1A Juliet Weidlich places clothes into a relief packag e intended to aid the Philippine Islands impacted by the recen t typhoon.

Now she wants to continue to serve the state’s children and improve their literacy skills. “They have a great team here,” she said of her Just Read staff. “II’m real pleased with who I’ve met so far and I think we share the same mis-sion of improving stu-dent achievement in and through literacy with our kids. They know that stu-dents are our first priority and that will remain the norm here.” She discussed what the program means to her and what it should mean to others. “I think the mission is all about how the stu-dents do and improving students in and through literacy,” Stevens said. “‘Just Read, Florida!’ is all about reading but it’s more than just about reading — it’s literacy. It’s reading, speaking, listen-ing, discussing and com-municating with others and that’s what we’ve got to make sure our kids are able to do so that they are productive beyond the high school years.” Coming directly from the classroom, her post. “I think I’m one of the first people that they’ve hired that’s been out there in it, in the trenches so to speak,” she said. “I hope that my recent perspec-tive on what’s happening out there in the districts, the schools and the class-rooms makes it work bet-ter and move forward. There are a lot of things happening right now in our education system.” Stevens said she’ll be to draw from the experience she gained as a classroom teacher in her new job. “I think the experience helps me because I have something real, the practical aspect of it,” she said. “I know when a new policy or initiative comes forward that I can look at it from a different perspec-tive than somebody who was not in the classroom. I can look at it through the eyes of a teacher or the eyes of an instructional coach. Probably my big-gest strength is the fact that I was out there in the classroom.” Although she will be based in the Florida Department of Education’s office in Tallahassee, Stevens said she plans to commute from Columbia County rather than move to Tallahassee. “I’m very excited about this,” she said. “It’s an honor and a privilege that I’m not going to take lightly. I’m going to work very hard to live up to the expectations that every-one has for me. I hope that I can represent Columbia County at the same time.” STEVENSContinued From 1A ‘Recovery is an ongoing process.’ — Incos Smith Caring hearts ride to raise moneyThe Caring Hearts charity motorcycle ride took place Satu rday with more than 200 motorcycles and 240 people that raised more than $11,000, not including toys and food, for the Christian Service Center.

Tigers jack Jackets CHS advances, 42-24 By TIM KIRBY FORT WHITE Fort White High football has worked for years to get a home playoff game, but it turned out to be bitter sweet. East Gadsden High (56) came to Arrowhead Stadium on Friday and left with a 19-9 win in the Class 4A region semifinal. It was a first-round sweep for District 1 as Florida High beat Taylor County High, 41-6. After a scoreless first quarter, Fort White forged a 9-0 halftime lead which started with a safety on a snap over the punters head at 8:07 of the second quarter. After the free kick the Indians put together one of their patented drives. Ten carries by Tavaris Williams, Kellen Snider and Blair Chapman moved the ball from the Fort White 42 to the Jaguars 13. On a perfect call against a blitz, Andrew Baker threw back to Melton Sanders for the touchdown. Sanders tacked on the PAT. It was the only sus tained drive of the first half. The best Fort White and East Gadsden did on other drives was two first INDIANS continued on 3B By BRANDON FINLEY ST. AUGUSTINE Columbia Highs Lonnie Underwood scored two touchdowns in 1:14 during the third quarter and the Tigers turned a 24-21 defe cit into a 42-24 win against St. Augustine High in the FHSAA Class 6A Region 1 quarterfinal on Friday. Underwood turned in 200 yards and three touch downs on 27 attempts to lead the Tigers into the sec ond round of the playoffs for the third-consecutive year. The Tigers were slow to start, not scoring their first touchdown until 1:08 remaining in the first quar ter. Its wasnt due to a lack of defense. Zyeric Woods picked off a Cole Northrup pass on the first possession, Austin Harper and Malechi Jean stopped a drive short on the Jackets second pos session and Columbia forced a three-and-out on St. Augustines third pos session. It wasnt until Zedrick Woods recovered a fumble with 1:14 remaining in the first quarter that the Tigers CHS continued on 3B

Burns won the 200 Individual Medley with a time of 2:00.95. Burns also won state in the 200 IM last year and was state champion in the 100 Breaststroke as a fresh-man. Burns was runner-up in the 500 Freestyle, also the third time she has placed second at state in an event. Columbia’s 200 Medley Relay team of Lindsay Lee, Skyler Covert, Burns and Courtney Britt placed sec-ond at state in a time of 1:49.50.

Winston, No. 2 FSU defeat Syracuse 59-3Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. 2 Florida State. The Heisman Trophy candidate showed no effects from a tumultuous week, completing 19-of-21 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns as the Seminoles rolled Syracuse 59-3 on Saturday. News broke Wednesday that Winston was under investigation for an alleged sexual assault that took place Dec. 7, 2012. Attention moved away from his Heisman Trophy campaign to the many unanswered questions surrounding an investigation that is nearly a year old. Any questions about whether the off-field issue would impact Florida State’s game were answered immediately. Florida State (10-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 28-0 in the first quarter. Syracuse (5-5, 3-3) was held scoreless until late in the fourth quarter. Florida State outgained the Orange 523-427. “It’s the same thing every single week,” Winston said. “We prepare ourselves the same way every sin-gle week. One thing about Florida State, we’re a big family. So we stay inside the family. “We’ve got the same plan every week. We want to be elite. We want to be great. And just like we had the 1993 championship team come down. We want to be just like those guys. We want to just keep every-thing rolling the right way.” The Seminoles are second in the BCS standings and are likely three vic-tories away — they play Idaho, Florida and the ACC championship game in the next three weeks — from locking up a spot in the BCS championship game. Florida falls again, 19-14COLUMBIA, S.C. — Elliott Fry kicked four field goals and No. 11 South Carolina won its school-record 16th straight at home, sending banged-up Florida to its fifth consecu-tive loss with a 19-14 victory Saturday night. The Gamecocks (8-2, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) struggled to score points against the Gators’ SEC-leading defense until Fry gave them a 16-14 lead with a 22-yard field goal with 6:43 remaining. This is the longest losing streak for Florida (4-6, 3-5) since dropping nine straight during its 0-10-1 season in 1979. The Gamecocks’ win kept them in the SEC’s Eastern Division race. They got a large boost in the bid for the title game with Auburn’s last-second, tipped-ball comeback to defeat Georgia.

Fort White drove into East Gadsden territory on the first drive of the second half, but ended up punting. The teams exchanged two more punts with the Jaguars starting at their 20. After two incompletions, East Gadsden quarterback Al Peterson turned deadly. He completed 4 of 5 passes with the last one good for an eight-yard touchdown to Jeremy Frison at 2:02 of the third quarter. La’Javier Turner ran in the two-point conversion to cut Fort White’s lead to 9-8. After a three-and-out for the Indians, Peterson con-nected with Kendre James for 35 yards to the Fort White 13. The defense held to a field goal try and Billy Prior was good from 25 yards. East Gadsden led 11-9 with 10:16 left in the game. Fort White lost a fumble on its next possession, but forced a punt. Prior blasted it 52 yards to the Indians 7 with 7:22 left to play. Baker connected with Sanders for 37 yards, Isaiah Sampson for seven yards and Chapman for 19 yards for a first down at the Jaguars 30. A sack on sec-ond down cost nine yards and passing attempts on third and fourth down went incomplete. Fort White’s defense stayed strong and forced another punt, this time to the Indians 42. A pass inter-ference penalty against East Gadsden gave the Indians a first down at the Jaguars 39. A sack on first down and three incompletions ended the drive. With 1 1/2 minutes to play, Fort White bunched up in the box to try and create a turnover. Javarius Johnson found a seam on an off-tackle run and went 54 yards for a touchdown. Peterson’s pass to Turner produced the final score. The late run gave East Gadsden 223 total yards, while Fort White totaled 230 in the defensive strug-gle. The nine points was a season-low for the Indians who averaged 34 points per game in the regular sea-son. “We ran up against a team that had us out-num-bered on defense,” Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. “They had big guys up front and stopped us in the middle. They ran us down when we went out-side and they were able to man-up on our receivers. We couldn’t finish the job.” Fort White (7-2) did finish the season with its first district championship. “Our guys fought hard,” Jackson said. “I was proud of the effort and proud of our seniors for leading us to this position. It didn’t end the way we wanted it to end, but you can’t take away from the season. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but you can’t win them all. Unfortunately, this loss ended our season.”——— East Gadsden 0 0 8 11 — 19 Fort White 0 9 0 0 — 9 Second Quarter FW—Safety, ball snapped out of end zone, 8:07 FW—Sanders 13 pass from Baker (Sanders kick) Third Quarter EG—Frison 8 pass from Peterson (Turner run), 2:02 Fourth Quarter EG—Prior 25 FG,10:16EG—Johnson 54 run (Peterson pass to Turner), 1:12 —— Fort White East GadsdenFirst downs 12 9Rushes-yards 34-109 23-88Passing-yards 121 135Comp-Att-Int 10-20-0 15-26-1Punts-Avg. 5-37 5-41Fumbles-Lost 2-2 0-0Penalties 2-20 5-45 INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS RUSHING—Fort White, Williams 14-80, Snider 11-37, Chapman 2-6, Sampson 1-0, Baker 4-(-7), Garrison 2-(-7).

On their first offensive play of the following drive quarterback Jake Thomas hit Caleb Carswell for a 37-yard touchdown pass to break the scoreless tie. It was Thomas’ first action in a non-mop-up capac-ity since week two against Lincoln High. Columbia head coach Brian Allen said he made the most of his opportunity. “We came in with the mindset that we were going to rotate our guys,” Allen said. “We were going to give Nate (Taylor) two series to Jake’s one. I pulled Nate to the side and had a heart to heart with him, because it’s tough to sit a starter that’s went 9-1 and had nearly 1,000 yards. Jake played excel-lent though, and I would have been dumb not to go with the hot hand. Both have played well and we will continue to go with the hot hand the rest of the way.” St. Augustine answered Columbia’s touchdown on its following drive with help from a pass-interfer-ence penalty and recover-ing a surprise-onside kick. The Yellow Jackets drove 45 yards in only four plays to tie the game at 7-7 after Patrick Stewart rushed in from five-yards away. Larry Woodward intercepted Taylor’s only pass of the night on Columbia’s next possession, but the Tigers would answer with a game-changing intercep-tion of their own during St. Augustine’s posses-sion. Roger Cray stepped in front of Cole Northrup’s pass and returned it 55 yards to give Columbia a 14-7 lead after a Brayden Thomas’ extra point with 10:25 remaining in the first half. After an exchange of possessions, Brendan Baird blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone to tie the game 14-all with 5:27 remaining in the first half. The Tigers turned around and fumbled on the exchange of the next pos-session with Danny Roldan recovering for the Yellow Jackets at Columbia’s 45-yard line. St. Augustine turned the fumble into a field goal from Morgan Sefcick to take a 17-14 lead with 2:29 remaining in the first half. The Tigers ended the half on top, however, with an 11-play drive capped off by a five-yard run from Underwood to lead 21-17 at the break. St. Augustine was the beneficiary of another spe-cial-teams gift on its next touchdown. The Tigers faked a punt at their own 37-yard line needing five yards to move the chains, but came up a yard short. St. Augustine then drove 41-yards in six plays to take a 24-21 lead after Northrup hit Lashaud Lockwood on a seven-yard pass with 8:22 remaining in the third quarter. On the Tigers’ next drive, Columbia took the lead for good. The Tigers never faced a third down and drove 80 yards in 12 plays to take the 28-24 lead after a 4:27 drive with 3:55 to go in the third quar-ter. After a three-and-out by the Yellow Jackets, Underwood broke a 73-yard run on the Tigers’ first offensive play of the next drive to take a 35-24 lead with 2:41 remaining in the third quarter. Columbia’s final score came off a 12-yard quarter-back keeper when Thomas capped off an 11-play, 65-yard drive eating up 4:42 of the game clock with 9:41 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Tigers’ exclamation point came with Roger Cray intercepting a Northrup pass during St. Augustine’s final possession to take control with 2:42 remain-ing in the game. After a first down, the Tigers kneeled on the ball to advance to the second round of the playoffs. “It was an outstanding effort and we controlled our emotions,” Allen told the team after the game. “I’m very proud of you and what makes it even more special is that we’ll get a home game next week. We’ve got to clean up the mistakes and continue to get better.” The Tigers will host Bartram Trail High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in the second round of the play-offs.

BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterSafety Trey Marshall turns up the field on a kickoff retur n for the Tigers on Friday. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comSome say that the biggest individual stat in football is turn-overs and Columbia High forced enough on Friday to pick up a 42-24 win against St. Augustine High in the Region 1 Quarterfinals of the Class 6A playoffs in St. Augustine. Columbia’s defense bookended the game with turnovers, beginning with a Zyeric Woods interception on the first drive and ending with a Roger Cray inter-ception on the final drive. For a head coach that prides himself on defense, Brian Allen was proud of the team’s efforts. “They played extremely well,” Allen said. “We talked about it all season, just getting that two-percent better every day. Somewhere around the end of the season you should be executing around 100 percent. Last week, against Suwannee, the defense had a little bit of a coming out party. You look at Roger and he was a fresh-man last year that played like a senior. Coming into this year as a sophomore, he hasn’t slumped any and only continues to get better.” Besides Zyeric Woods’ interception in the first quarter, the Tigers’ defense also issued a sack with Austin Harper and Malechi Jean combining for the effort, and Zedrick Woods recovered a fumble. Jean, a defensive tackle, whose impact on the game usually doesn’t show up on the stat sheet, disrupted the Yellow Jackets all night, and his head coach was singing his praises following the contest. “That’s the thing at nose tackle,” Allen said. “You’re not going out there and having games that show up stat wise where you have 10-12 tackles or three or four sacks, but he’s doing things out there to disrupt. He’s beating his double team and killing their traps and Isos. We saw him do that a couple of times tonight.” Perhaps the game’s biggest defensive stop resulted in the Tigers scoring points from that side. Cray stepped in front of a Cole Northrup pass with 10:25 remaining in the second quarter and returned the interception 55 yards for a score to give Columbia a 14-7 lead. “I was just watching his head, and when I caught it, I didn’t see anything in front of me,” Cray said. “When I saw the field, I was excited. I wanted to go help our team make a play by scoring on the defense.” After falling behind, 24-21, with 8:22 remaining in the third quarter, the Tigers didn’t register another defensive sack or turn-over until Cray’s nail-in-the-coffin interception with 2:42 remaining in the game. What the Tigers did in that span was equally important, however. Columbia forced three-and-outs on three-straight pos-sessions while working up the 42-24 lead that would become the final. “Until then we were really bending, but not breaking,” Cray said. “We changed a couple of things that we were doing defensively and disguised our Cover 2 look (to stop them.)” While Columbia’s defense was dominating, the Tigers were getting a favor from anoth-er Jacksonville-area school as Bartram Trail High knocked off Ed White High to give Columbia a home-playoff game at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Instead of going on the road, the Tigers defense will be allowed to run wild at home for the first time in a month. The task won’t be easy with the Bears coming in after hanging 50 points on Ed White. Still, the Tigers are look-ing forward to the challenge. “We’re all excited to come back and get a home-playoff game,” Cray said.

LIFE Sunday, November 17, 2013 Section D Story ideas? Contact Robert Bridges Editor 754-0428 Lake City Reporter 1DLIFE Very Southern Thanksgiving E ach year we look forward to Thanksgiving almost as much as we look forward to Christmas, because its the time of year where family and friends gather together to reminisce about the past and indulge in one of the best meals around. We know many of you have your favorite dishes, those that have been handed down from your moms, grandmothers and greatgrands and some of you try something new each year to mix it up. At our houses, its all about tradition for the most part. Weve been serving the same menu for years and before that, the dishes were served at our parents or grandpar ents houses. Just about everyone serves turkey and lots of side dishes, but at Mary Kays she gave up on cooking a turkey years ago and now lets her dad cook it with the addition of a wonderful grilled stand ing rib roast. One year, she thought shed give it a go and pulled up a compli cated recipe from Emerils collection, thinking, how hard can it be to cook a turkey? Well, the turkey was absolutely beauti ful to look at, glistening golden brown skin, but when it was time to carve she found a completely raw bird on the inside! Needless to say, we were thankful that year for the table full of sides.

So when we were in the Portland area of Maine, we took a scenic drive down the coast to Cape Elizabeth to Maines oldest lighthouse, Portland Head Light. Along the way we passed by several large homes that sit along the Atlantic Ocean with breathtaking views and lush green lawns. We also passed Casco Bay and the Calendar Islands. These islands were named such because of the number of islands. Although there really arent 365 of them, there were so many it seemed appropriate. The true number is 136.

The Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Gateway provides assis tance with childcare costs to low-income families in Columbia County and four nearby counties. According to Glaser, child care costs can require a substantial percentage of a persons paycheck, espe cially since the program targets individuals at or below 150 percent of the poverty level. This allows the parent, whos struggling already to pay their other bills car, insurance, their house to place their child in a safe place during the day, Glaser said. The idea of the program is two-fold: Keep parents working and keep children in daycare in preparation for kinder garten. According to the mis sion statement of Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Gateway, the organization recognizes the importance of chil dren entering the edu cation system ready to learn. During the 2012-13 year, the coalition helped 1,423 families with child care costs, placing 2,549 children in school-readi ness childcare. Of those children, 70 percent of them came from working parents, 12 percent from parents under investiga tion for abuse or neglect and 11 percent from parents seeking employ ment through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. A statewide program, there are 30 coalitions situated throughout Florida. The local orga nization helps families in Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee and Union counties. The Early Learning Coalition program was established in 1999 to pro vide aid through the Child Care Development Fund. In addition to helping par ents find child care, the coalition assists child care providers through yearly inspections and training opportunities. Past train ing courses offered by the Early Learning Coalition include Tiny Tips for Little Bits, Count on Math, Managing Your Day the Visual Way, and Key to Success Conference. We believe that what we do carries through high school and beyond, Glaser said. A lot of peo ple believe children need to know their colors, their shapes and their letters before entering kindergar ten, and thats fine. But they also need to be able to regulate themselves, know how to share with their friends and how to talk to adults. Most of that learn ing truly solidifies in childrens brains as they grow from infancy to kin dergarten, but is knowl edge many young adults need as they entire the workforce. When thinking of the type of employee a business might want to hire, Glaser said, the com pany would prefer indi viduals who have essential social and communication skills. Without early childhood education, children can miss out on the connec tions and necessary skills needed later in life, she added. Because of the impor tance, the Florida House of Representatives Education Committee plans to discuss necessary changes for early educa tion during the upcoming legislative session. To prepare, Representative Elizabeth Porter (R Lake City) toured several local daycare facilities to see the range of quality offered. As we try to make improvements and as we try to see what we can do to help improve child care, its important to see where we are starting from, Porter said. In the Lake City area, the group toured two daycare facilities the Lake City Kiddy Club and Doras Paradise and Learning Academy. When Porter arrived at Doras, children were preparing for a nap, but soon got distracted by their new guests. The group read books to the children, visited the infant room and examined the space. Children at the Lake City Kiddy Club were danc ing and singing along to educational tunes when the group arrived at their second location. Porters tour ended with a peek inside the daycares three build ings and its playground. A giant lion, posed as a water fountain, smiled as the group left the daycare with the sounds of tod dler goodbyes echoing behind them.

The views alone were worth the short trip from the Portland harbor area. After leaving this area, we drove down to Kennebunkport. This area also had a lot of beautiful Victorian style homes in town and along the coast. The beaches were fairly scarce, as it was a cool 60 something degrees and windynot to mention water temperatures were around 57 degrees. We stopped to have lunch in Kennebunkport and selected Federal Jack’s Restaurant and Brew Pub in hopes of sit-ting outside under the heat lamps overlooking the harbor. Oh, and for the local beers. They were only seating inside today and so we got a window seat, at least. I started with a sampler of 3 beers, Goat Island Light, Tainted Town Pale Ale and Royal IPA. The Tainted Town Pale Ale was the best, so I ordered a full glass. This accompanied my bowl of non-traditional Maine lob-ster bisque soup. Let me tell you about that. This was truly one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. I chose the option to have it served in a bread bowl. The broth was just right, just warm enough and not too thin, not too thick and oh my… the lobster in it was amazing. Nothing like what you get back in Florida or anywhere else in the South for that mat-ter — where it may simply be flavored with lobster or you might find one piece of lobster meat. I had large amounts of whole lobster pieces, at least one piece in every bite and the flavors were mouthwater-ing. Not to mention the soggy bread that would get scooped up as I scraped the bottom of the bowl. Everything about it was perfect, especially as I fol-lowed each bite with a sip of my cold Kennebunkport brewed beer. One our way back to Portland we drove along the coast some more and purposely passed by Walker’s Point, the Bush estate and former summer White House. We learned that as a Secret Service post, this was the one to have. The Secret Service agents have their own resi-dences on the compound and their families are allowed to stay with them. They also stay year round, whether any of the Bush family is in residence or not. When they are in resi-dence they fly all 3 flags, the US flag, the Maine state flag and the Texas state flag. I would love to see more of Maine’s beautiful coastlines. The state itself is quite rugged and com-prised of mostly forestry; about 90 percent. But the views are breathtaking. I especially want to see the Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park areas. Finding some more lob-ster and beer that tastes that good too wouldn’t hurt. I foresee yet another trip ahead of me. MAINEContinued From 1D that adopted the standards are fighting to restore the cursive instruction.Argument for cursiveBateman, a 72-yearold state representative from Idaho, says cursive conveys intelligence and grace, engages creativity and builds brain cells. “Modern research indicates that more areas of the human brain are engaged when children use cursive handwriting than when they keyboard,” said Bateman, who handwrites 125 ornate letters each year. “We’re not thinking this through. It’s beyond belief to me that states have allowed cursive to slip from the standards.”Why was it dropped?State leaders who developed the Common Core — a set of preferred K-12 course offerings for public schools — omitted cursive for a host of rea-sons, including an increas-ing need for children in a digital-heavy age to master computer keyboarding and evidence that even most adults use some hybrid of classic cursive and print in everyday life. “If you just stop and think for a second about what are the sorts of skills that peo-ple are likely to be using in the future, it’s much more likely that keyboarding will help students succeed in careers and in school than it is that cursive will,” said Morgan Polikoff, an assistant professor of K-12 policy and leadership at the University of Southern California.Having teaching cursive restoredStates that adopted Common Core aren’t precluded from deviating from the standards. But in the world of education, where classroom time is limited and performance stakes are high, optional offerings tend to get side-lined in favor of what’s required. That’s why at least seven states — California, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Utah — have moved to keep the cursive requirement. Legislation passed in North Carolina and elsewhere couples cursive with memorization of multiplication tables as twin “back to basics” man-dates. Cursive advocates cite recent brain science that indicates the fluid motion employed when writing script enhances hand-eye coordination and develops fine motor skills, in turn promoting reading, writ-ing and cognition skills. They further argue that scholars of the future will lose the ability to interpret valuable cultural resources — historical documents, ancestors’ letters and jour-nals, handwritten scholar-ship — if they can’t read cursive. If they can’t write it, how will they communi-cate from unwired settings like summer camp or the battlefield? “The Constitution of the United States is written in cursive. Think about that,” Bateman said.What do the students and teachers think?All the fuss seems a bit loopy to certain mem-bers of Gens X, Y and Z — which have diverged increasingly from hand-writing to computers. The volume of first-class mail at the U.S. Postal Service fell in 2010 to its lowest level in a quarter-century, just as computer use — and the keyboarding it involves — was surg-ing. Some 95 percent of teens use the Internet, and the percentage using smartphones to go online has grown from 23 per-cent in 2011 to 37 percent today, according to the Pew Research Center. A 2012 Pew report found the volume of text messages among teens rose from 50 a day on average in 2009 to 60 a day on average two years later. Pew research has also shown that educators don’t necessarily think that’s a bad thing. A survey of teachers of American middle school and high school students published in July found 78 percent believed digital tools such as the Internet, social media and cell-phones were encouraging their students’ creativity and personal expression. Kristen Purcell, associate director for research at Pew’s Internet & American Life Project, said research-ers found it surprising — given those results — that 94 percent of the 2,462 Advanced Placement and National Writing Project surveyed still said they “encourage their students to do at least some of their writing by hand.” Teachers gave two primary reasons, she said: Most standardized tests are still in paper-and-pen-cil format and teachers believed having students write by hand helped them slow down their thinking, encouraging deeper and fuller thinking during the writing process. Pew surveys of teens have found many prefer to write on the computer, which they found faster and neater, but many still use handwriting for notes, letters, journals, short sto-ries or music lyrics — as well as for school. “I find it hard to think creatively when I am typ-ing,” a high school boy from the Pacific Northwest told Pew for a 2008 study. “So I like to handwrite everything, then I put it on the computer. I don’t know, that is just how I am.” Kathleen Wright, handwriting product man-ager for Zaner-Bloser, a Columbus, Ohio-based textbook publisher, said colleges of education that have focused on “whole language” education have turned out a crop of young teachers who are unable to either write or teach cur-sive writing themselves. That has financial implications to what’s required in the Common Core. “One of the things I’ve seen over the years is the hesitance on the part of some boards to legislate specific things because it may require additional training for teachers,” Wright said. “If you spe-cifically require things for handwriting at differ-ent grade levels, you have to provide professional development. That may be the reason why it wasn’t included in the Common Core.”What are the implications?Adults unable to write cursive might think back to the experiences of Jacob Lew when President Barack Obama nominated him as treasury secretary in 2013. As treasury secretary, Lew’s signature would be on U.S. currency. But that signature looked more like a series of loops than the distinct letters in his name. “Jack assured me that he is going to work to make at least one letter legible in order not to debase our currency,” the president joked at the time.

CURSIVEContinued From 1DTo help victims, send money, not stuffBy SHARON COHENAP National WriterFaced with heartbreaking images of the typhoon-ravaged Philippines — the sea of corpses, communi-ties reduced to rubble, mothers clutching their hungry children — the world is watching an epic tragedy unfold and looking for ways to help. But how? In the aftermath of megadisasters such as Typhoon Haiyan, experts say there are some basic rules for those eager to do good: Forget the rummage sale clothes, the old toys and the kind of supplies that will only stack up undis-tributed or damage an already weakened econo-my. Do send a cash dona-tion to a respected charity. “It absolutely should be money,” says Kathleen Tierney, director of the Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado-Boulder, a clearinghouse and research group on the social aspects and impacts of disasters around the world. “Whether it’s the U.S. or abroad, one thing that typically happens after a major disaster is people want to donate stuff. This creates enormous logisti-cal problems ... and people receiving donations they could never conceivably use, like winter coats sent to people in the Caribbean.” When disaster aid isn’t properly thought out, “you can end up undermining the local economy,” Tierney adds. “Once you ship build-ing materials halfway around the world, it turns out you’ve ruined the mar-ket” for those in the area. “If you want to see econom-ic recovery, you don’t want to send so many supplies that you create a situation where people can’t survive in a business sense.” • Sweetwater Branch Inn 800-595-7760 • Ward’s Jewelry & Gifts 752-5470 • Camp Weed Cerveny Conference Center 386-364-5250 • Holiday Inn 754-1411, ext. 106 • GeGee’s Studio 758-2088 Online:Red Cross: www. redcross.orgWorld Vision: www. worldvision.orgCARE: Natural Hazards Center: Best airport?

Surely, there is a better way. Actually, there are lots of better ways. Even if all you do is crisp some chopped bacon in a skillet, then pop fresh green beans in for a few minutes of stir-frying, the end result will still be better (and probably more welcome at the table). But that’s just the start. To help you get your green bean creativity flow-ing, we’ve given you a basic recipe for cooking them, plus two ways of finishing them — one with bacon and blue cheese, the other with honey-sweet-ened spicy coconut. But if neither of those do it for you, use our base, then take those beans in any direction you like.Green beans two waysStart to finish: 20 minutesServings: 8Q 2 tablespoons olive oil Q 3 cloves garlic, minced Q 2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmedQ Salt and ground black pepper For the bacon and blue cheese topping:Q 1/2 cup crumbled cooked baconQ 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheeseQ 1/4 cup chopped scallions For the sweet-and-spicy coconut topping:Q 1/4 cup honey Q 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakesQ 1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the olive oil.

COURTESYIt’s just not Thanksgiving without the classic green bean casserole. Here’s another, more modern, take on that family favorite dish. There’s always a better, healthier, way to do what’s already been done. Pet-friendly inns: Tales, horrorsBy LINDA LOMBARDIAssociated PressIf you travel with your dog and prefer small inns and B&Bs over chain hotels, it can be frustrat-ing that so few allow pets. If you listen to some inn-keepers’ stories, though, you may wonder why any of them do. At Les Artistes Inn in Del Mar, Calif., for exam-ple, a pair of Weimaraners crashed through a window when they saw another dog walk past. “The own-ers had said, ‘Don’t worry, they’ll be fine,’” said owner John Halper. “The ‘fine’ part was incorrect.” Halper only allows pets in some rooms, but one couple checked into his best no-pets, ocean-view room with a crate “carry-ing this cat that has a head bigger than my own,” he said. They told him it was “a real live hybrid bobcat.” While most stays don’t involves horror stories like these, understanding the rules — and the reasons behind them — can make your vacation more pleas-ant for you, your pet and the staff.Can your dog handle being alone?The policy with the biggest impact on your stay is whether your dog can be left in the room alone. Innkeepers need to bal-ance your desire to go out for dinner with the poten-tial for property damage and the comfort of other guests. “You wouldn’t want to be in a room that had a bark-ing dog in it all afternoon when you’re trying to take a nap,” says Tom Dott of the Lamb and Lion Inn on Massachusett’s Cape Cod. Inez Conover remembers guests who left their dog alone at her inn, Bewitched and Bedazzled, in Rehoboth Beach, Del. The dog barked and scratched for nine hours, and the owners never answered their cell. She told them about the prob-lem when they returned, but the next day, she heard a “terrible dragging-back-and-forth noise” in the room. She found the dog tied to the bed, which he’d dragged all over, “tearing up the hardwood floor,” and breaking the bed away from the headboard. Conover is the rare innkeeper who allows dogs to be left alone, because she is willing to make a special effort to keep them out of trouble. If a dog makes noise, she’ll bring it to her office, where she has calming supplies rang-ing from herbal supple-ments to chew toys. She also recently put Plexiglas on door bottoms to protect them from scratch marks. But don’t expect an innkeeper to make an excep-tion to a no-dogs-left-alone policy because your dog is fine at home all day while you go to work. Its behav-ior in a new place may not be the same. Dogs “have to acclimate first,” said Dott. “They get scared if left in a strange place by themselves.” To test how a dog will react to a hotel room, leave the dog for a short time while you “hang out by the pool, have breakfast,” Dott said. “In that hour, if your dog’s quiet, I’m sold.” A crate-trained dog is a better candidate for being left alone. But the crate needs to be something you use regularly at home, not something you’ve bought for the trip. “I’ve had dogs kenneled that were throw-ing themselves against the kennels and moving the kennels across the floor,” said Conover. No matter your dog’s training and behavior, don’t expect exceptions every-where. Laila Kollmann says the no-dogs-alone rule at Cayucos Shoreline Inn in Cayucos, Calif., is hard and fast. “We don’t even allow them alone in the room with a crate, even if we personally know them,” she says. “It’s unfair to see a dog allowed in one room and not the other.” Even regular guests who bring a rabbit that they walk around on a leash aren’t allowed to leave it in a cage in their room. Innkeepers with a nopets-alone rule can often direct you to local doggie day care, or pet-sitters who will come to your room.How dog-friendly is the destination?The dog-friendliness of the destination is worth considering when plan-ning trips. Where Halper is located, near San Diego, bring-ing your dog everywhere won’t constrain your activi-ties much. “We have 350 days of sunshine a year,” he said. “There’s a dog beach within a mile. There are lots of sidewalk cafes in town where dogs are allowed to sit with their owners.” But on Cape Cod, that’s less common, so Dott pro-vides guests with a map of dog-friendly spots.Read the fine printEven in dog-friendly inns, pets are often allowed only in certain rooms. Some also have size restrictions. Dott says they allow only small dogs in the busy sea-son because of staff time constraints. “We love big dogs,” he said, “but when you are going at record speed doing housekeeping in July and August, a big black lab adds an extra hour” to cleaning because of shedding. Most places charge pet fees, largely because of the extra housekeep-ing, but Dott has another reason: “You want to get people who are traveling with their dog because they want to travel with their dog, not because it’s cheaper.” In other words, don’t just bring your dog to save on kennel fees.How to be the perfect dog-owning guest—If you’re leaving a dog in your room, give the front desk your cell num-ber — and answer it. —Be considerate of the furnishings. In beach towns, inns often provide a place to hose your dog down outside. Some plac-es ask you to cover the couch and bedspread with a sheet. Some guests “say their dog never gets on the furniture, but we ask them to put them on anyway,” said Kollmann. “You don’t know what a dog will do in another place.” —Respect leash rules. Once at Halper’s inn, a dog snapped at a child coming in a front gate. The child screamed, and her father and the dog-owner nearly came to blows. “It was just two guys not paying atten-tion, one not watching his dog, one not watching his daughter,” said Halper. The incident made him reconsider whether to allow pets. Now dogs must be leashed in all common areas. —Don’t bring aggressive dogs to a hotel, and remember that not every-one loves dogs — even lit-tle ones like Dott’s Yorkies and pocket Pomeranians. “You’d be amazed how many people are fright-ened of dogs, even some-thing that small,” he said.

What a merger means for you American Airlines and US Airways have cleared the last major hurdle to merging, but no changes will come overnight. AIRFARE: The merger will give a combined American and US Airways Group Inc. the ability to increase fares. United, Delta and Southwest would be likely to follow. FREQUENT FLIER MILES: After the merger closes, the two airlines will likely combine the miles into one program and elite status from one airline will likely be honored on the other. That puts the occasional traveler closer to rewards.DESTINATIONS: There is little overlap between the two airlines’ existing routes. The combined carrier will offer more than 6,700 daily flights to 336 destinations in 56 countries, making it more attractive to companies seeking to fly employees around the globe with few connections.

DEAR ABBY: My elderly mother was recently placed in a nursing/rehabil-itation facility. After several months of observation, I would like to offer an open letter to those who work in such places. “Dear Caretaker, it is true I have grown older. My body won’t do what it used to do. My eyes aren’t as bright, and sometimes I have trouble finding the right words. But I do have a name, and it’s not ‘Honey’ or ‘Sweetie.’ I have experienced much, and I have learned much. Your history books are my personal history. There is a lot I could teach you. “You don’t have to shout; I will tell you if I can’t hear you. I have known great love and great tragedy in the years I have spent on this earth. I have spent decades learning to take care of myself, and it’s hard hav-ing to rely on others. “I need your help, but please don’t talk to me as if I were a 2-year-old or a puppy. I’m too polite to say so, but I see when you roll your eyes or heave a sigh that says you’d rather be anywhere else but with me. These are my final years, and I’ve worked a lifetime to get here. Give me the dignity I deserve. All too soon, you will want the same.” — DAUGHTER IN ANDERSON, IND. DEAR DAUGHTER: Your letter carries an important message. But please remember that the staff in nursing homes work long hours, often for minimum wage, and they all may not have been properly trained in caring for elderly and dementia patients. The work is hard, and the facility may also be understaffed. It takes a special kind of person to do this work, and many of them deserve medals. However, if you feel that your mother’s care is not up to par and that her dignity is not being respected, you should discuss it with the director of the facility. DEAR ABBY: For the last 10 years, a family of four has come to our home for every Christmas and Easter meal. It started when my wife invited a co-worker. They had no fam-ily in town and nowhere else to go. My wife’s relationship with the woman has cooled, but the family assumes they are automat-ically invited and show up without being asked. They spend more time talking to our other family members than they do to us. How do I politely let them know we no longer wish for them to come to our family meals? — FAMILY ONLY IN MISSISSIPPI DEAR FAMILY ONLY: Your wife should tell her co-worker that your plans for the holi-days have changed, that the two of you are scal-ing back the festivities to include ONLY FAMILY MEMBERS. She should be sure to convey this news in PLENTY of time for her co-worker to make other arrangements – whether it will be preparing some-thing herself or getting together with another family. NOW would be a perfect time to do it. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Personal changes will boost your confidence. Catch up on correspondence and make a point of re-evaluating your goals and strategizing about the best way to move forward. Don’t let someone from your past disrupt your present. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Creative, romantic gestures will heighten a meaning-ful relationship. Plan a day trip that offers pampering, entertainment and fine food. Future plans can be made and goals set, but don’t push your luck if faced with someone authoritative. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look out for your interests. Someone will misinform you. Avoid taking a financial risk. Stick to what you know and the people you trust. Be prepared to make a sudden and unexpected move if it will spare you loss. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Plan a fun-filled day with the ones you love. Put your heart on the line and speak openly and freely about your personal and professional plans for the future. Sharing your concerns and your dreams will give you strength to follow through. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Personal matters will cloud your vision. Before taking a stance or undergoing change, get to the root of the problem. Don’t let your generosity or good nature be taken for granted. Loyalty must be offered before you give back. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get together with old friends or reunite with some-one you used to be in love with. Reconnecting will bring back memories and valuable lessons that will allow you to move ahead without regret or the feeling of loss. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional problems revolving around money, medical or legal matters can be expected.

Make creative and accommodating alterations to your living space. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Keep everything out in the open or you may be accused of being decep-tive. Fix up your living space and make personal changes that will raise your profile or update your image. Don’t let love lead to an impulsive move you’ll regret. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Do a little networking or take time to initiate plans that will influence the way you move forward profes-sionally. A home improvement project will add to your assets and to your comfort. Love is in the stars and romance should be initiated. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t let anyone bring you down. If you project a happy-go-lucky attitude, you can ward off any negativity that comes your way. Revert back to things you used to enjoy doing and you will have a great time. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Engage in property projects that get your family, friends or whoever you share your living or community space with to pitch in and help. Having a plan will also put you in a leadership posi-tion that can transform into a prosperous offer. ++++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Former Belgian national airline 7 Just says no14 Cremona craftwork20 Origami staples21 1993 5x platinum Nirvana album 22 Wise guy7KH/RQH5DQJHU25 Phillip, e.g., in 'LVQH\V6OHHSLQJ%HDXW\ 26 Carrier inits.27 Kemo ___ (the Lone Ranger) 28 Move a muscle?29 No longer in enemy hands 30 Kind of appeal32 Base, e.g.34 Infusing with a soda maker 35 Hospital supplyBBB)iLO,UHODQGV coronation stone 6WULNHFDOOHUV39 Massachusetts motto starter 40 Dietary claim44 Deeply rooted46 Toothpaste type5RJHU(EHUW'RZQZULWHUV monogram 53 Opportunities, metaphorically 54 Hands (out)55 Trig ratio59 Old camera settings, for short 61 Add (up))UDQoRLV7UXIIDXWV field 6ZHHWWDON3RUN\3LJ69 Fixes up, as a rundown house &DWRVPDQ71 When doubled, one of the Teletubbies 1RZ$XJXVWBBB &RXQW\Pulitzer winner forDrama) 61/DOXP&KHUL76 Mimicry78 July third?*HRUJH%XUQV83 Genus of small rodents 86 Items sometimes sniffed at asupermarket 87 Highlights88 Mille ___ (part of Qubec with arhyming name) 90 Fill91 Other side92 Volleyball venue96 Hair extensions?6RPHWKLQJ\RXZDQW to come down fromquickly 'U\3UHIL[103 Home of Banff National Park 104 Animal house105 2004 Chevy debutBBBFDQW108 Beefeaters, e.g.5HG6NHOWRQ112 Record of the Year Grammy nomineeIRU/RVH

This country singer/songwriter from Bell pulled up his stakes and moved to Nashville to try to make it happen. Leaving his family and the green grass of home was difficult. But JR’s passion for music and song writing wouldn’t let him stay in Bell — his plans have always been to go to Nashville as soon as he graduated from high school. He is now beginning to feel the success of the move. JR’s new adventure would probably seem like typical lyrics from the country songs he’s come to love. “I stayed in a hotel six weeks where I couldn’t cook, so I ate at fast food res-taurants all the time,” he said. “Now, I’ve got an apartment, and I can cook, so I’m eating stuff like fried chicken and rice again.” A May 2013 gradu-ate with a certificate in mechan-ics from Suwannee Hamilton Technical Center in Live Oak, JR used that degree to secure a job in mechan-ics’ work almost as soon as he arrived in Nashville, something not everyone chas-ing their dream can achieve. Soon after settling into his new apartmnet, he found Douglas Corner Caf, one of Nashville’s “Legendary Venues,” where songwriters and musicians gather Tuesday nights to sing original songs. He’s now become a regular there, sing-ing songs he’s written. “Nashville is definitely not Florida,” JR said. “Traffic is awful, but I only live about five minutes from where I work so it’s not so bad. Life’s pretty much like I thought it would be up here in Nashville.” Although he‘s getting entrenched into the music scene in Nashville, there‘s still the daily grind to attend to. At 18, he’s up to whatever it takes to make it. JR has written several new songs in his off-time, covering a wide variety of subjects to add to his nearly one dozen originals songs. “ I pretty much want to have an abundance of original songs to do an hour and a half show when I’m asked,” he said. “My main goal here is to write music right now.” On top of working, writing and performing, JR plans to enter an American Idol pre-season audition soon. In the meantime, he’s got songs to rehearse, and what better a place than with those he works with. “My buddies at work are my guinea pigs,” he laughs, noting he videos his songs on a CD at night, brings the CD to work to play for them to get their opin-ion. “They aren’t all country fans, but they seem to like the songs.” COURTESYJR Hernandez, 18, of Bell, recently moved to Nashville, Tenn. to pursue his music career after graduating from Suwannee Hamilton Technical Center in Live Oak. Mealtime challenges are OKBy LINDA LOMBARDIAssociated Press Working to get a meal is something dogs were born to do. “If dogs were out in the wild they’d be spending most of their time hunt-ing for food,” says trainer Joan Mayer of Santa Barbara, Calif. But for many of our dogs, mealtime is over in a minute or two. Then what? They look for some-thing else to do. Unfortunately, when dogs are left to find their own entertainment, we aren’t usually pleased with their choices. “They’re not going to sit down and turn on the TV,” says Mayer. “They’ll chew up the coach or bark all day.” So ask many trainers how you should feed your dog, and they’ll say you’re wasting a golden oppor-tunity by feeding out of a bowl. At any pet store you’ll see balls, puzzles and other food-dispensing objects ‚ the Kong is the most familiar. They’re often referred to with terms like “treat balls,” so some owners worry about weight gain from extra goodies if they use them. In fact, you can use these toys to feed your dog’s regular diet. If you feed dry kibble, just toss it in and you’re good to go. Or you can plug the hole of a Kong with canned food and freeze it for an even longer-lasting meal. Feeding this way can help with a variety of behavior problems. For dog trainer Melissa Duffy of Carlsbad, Calif., food toys have helped her rat terrier, Dinky, with sepa-ration anxiety. “She starts to get anxious when I am getting ready to go out, whining, pacing, shivering,” Duffy says. Being left with a food-dispensing toy calms her, and has longer-lasting effects as well. “She also doesn’t get into the trash can, which she will do if I leave her without a treat-dispens-ing toy,” says Duffy. “I’ve also noticed that she isn’t as frantic when I come home, no matter how long I’ve been gone.” Getting animals to use their natural behavior to get food is part of what zoos call “enrichment.” FEEDING YOUR POOCH ‘NASHVILLE IS DEFINITELY NOT FLORIDA. TRAFFIC IS AWFUL... LIFE’S PRETTY MUCH LIKE I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE UP HERE IN NASHVILLE.’— JR Hernandez
