'Miracle' fundraiser puts

babies on center stage

Marion Avenue buzzed.
with Christmas cheer
Saturday night as Lake
City residents
celebrated the first
annual "Miracle on Marion" at the
historic Blanche Hotel.
The event raised money for the
March of Dimes and featured live and
silent auctions, dancing, dining, casino
games and carolers. The dollar
amount raised was not known at press

McCallister began planning the
fundraiser in November 2004 along
with co-sponsors Tucker's Fine Dining
and the Downtown Action

extravaganza will become a Lake City
'There's really no big Christmas
parties here," McCallister said. "They
used to have an event every year at
the hotel on Christmas Day."
Event Chairwoman Maureen Lloyd
said about 200 people attended the
party, billed as An Old Fashioned
Lake City Christmas Tree Ball.
White Christmas lights illuminated
the entryway downstairs as
partygoers posed for photos with
Santa in front of the "Baby Love
Tree." The white Christmas tree
glittered with pastel blue and pink
decorations in memory of Colby and
Cooper Green, premature twins who
were born at only 26 weeks gestation.
"We want to raise awareness of
what the March of Dimes does,"
McCallister said. "Our $75 million
campaign is in its third year to find out
why babies are born premature."
The meaning behind Miracle on
Marion has special significance for
21-year-old Heather Beshore.
Beshore, a student at the University
of the South in Sewanee, Tenn., who
is volunteering with the'March of

New water

plant should

boost capacity

Project would
eliminate drops
in water pressure.
lyoung@lakecityreporter. com
The new $12 million water
treatment facility for Lake
City is expected to begin
operating in a year and
construction is on schedule.
"It's coming up out of the
ground, the walls are up on
the service building, the
administration building and
the ground storage tank. And
obviously all of the plumbing
that's underground has been
installed," said Lake City
Manager Joe Cone.
And not a moment too soon
for those who run the old
plant and remember the
forest fires of a few years ago.
"On some days if they have
fires here we almost can't
make enough water," said
Lake City Water Treatment
Facilities Chief Operator Bill
Estep. 'The new one will be
able to put out three times the
water of this one and future
expansion as well. This plant
here is pretty old."
The existing water treat-
ment plant is able to handle
demand for now, Estep said.
"But we're coming close to
our maximum capacity,"
Estep said. "Luckily, this time
next year it will be on line, but
it's still good for now."
Construction on the new
water treatment facility began
in February and is expected
to be completed in October
2006. After being tested, the
new plant will begin produc-
ing water for the city in
December 2006, city officials

The existing plant has a
capacity to produce 6 million
gallons of water per day, and
averages about 4.5 million
gallons. But during the
2002 drought, the city exceed-
ed capacity and production
increased to 6.3 million
gallons a day, Cone said.
"What happens when you
have that kind of problem is
the water pressure drops,"
Cone said.
Low water pressure wasn't
the biggest problem the city
water plant had. When water
levels dropped in the Floridan
Aquifer, so did the water lev-
els in the city's five wells -
that were at varying shallow
depths between 120 feet to
140 feet - collapsing three of
the wells at different times.
"The walls of the wells col-
lapsed because the water
level drops. When the wells
collapsed, you had to shut off
the pumps, your production
capacity is diminished," Cone
Production capacity won't
be a problem with the new
water treatment plant any
time soon.
"It's expandable to 20 mil-
lion gallons (of water produc-
tion per day) and it also
involves new wells, which is
equally important to the new
plant. First of all they're deep-
er at 380 feet," Cone said.
'"The second thing that's
important is the existing
wells have a lot of urban

Democrats lack unified

troops to start coming home

Harry Reid calls on President
Bush to develop a timetable for

colleagues, including Sen. John
Kerry, craft their own plans for
the military's eventual return.
The only position Democrats
seem to share is that Bush's
current strategy is flawed.
Otherwise, they have widely
disparate views about how -
and when - to get out of Iraq,
raising the question of whether
the lack of a unified message
could hinder Democratic
efforts to turn Bush's woes and

about the war into liabilities for

Feldman, a Democratic con-
sultant in Washington. 'This is

Unlike the Republican
fissures, Democratic differ-
ences have been prominently
on display in recent weeks.
Pelosi, D-Calif., Wednesday
endorsed a call by her top
adviser on defense issues, the
hawkish Rep. John Murtha,
D-Pa., for U.S. troops to begin
pulling out of Iraq. He says all
could be home in six months.
At the same time, Hoyer,
D-Md., released a statement
responding to a Bush speech
on Iraq. It contradicted Pelosi,
saying: "a precipitous with-

Hurricane Epsilon

strengthens in Atlantic

Associated Press

MIAMI - A rare December
hurricane, Epsilon strength-
ened Saturday as it moved out
in the open Atlantic, where it
posed no threat to land.
Epsilon is the record
14th hurricane of the
six-month Atlantic season that
officially ended Wednesday. It
formed Friday, two days after
the end of the busiest
hurricane season on record.
It had top sustained winds
near 80 mph at 4 p.m. EST, up
from 75 mph earlier in the day,
according to the National

Hurricane Center. It was cen-
tered about 930 miles west of
the Azores and moving east at
near 12 mph.
Epsilon was only the fifth
December hurricane to form
in more than 150 years of
records, hurricane specialist
Stacy Stewart said.
By December, upper-atmos-
phere winds are normally
strong enough to keep storms
in check, Stewart said, "but
about every 20 years or so, the
atmosphere allows it to

The latest that a hurricane
formed in the Caribbean was
Dec. 30, which happened in
1954, he said.
Forecasters say 2006 could
be another brutal hurricane
year because the Atlantic is in
a period of frenzied activity
that began in 1995 and could
last at least another decade.
Government hurricane
experts blame the increase on
a natural cycle of higher sea
temperatures, lower wind
shear and other factors,
though some scientists cite
global warming.

cial one-week session, they'll
be asked to deal with two

many lawmakers and Gov.
Jeb Bush have been desper-
ate to do for several years:
overhaul the Medicaid
The other is something
they'd rather not have to deal
with at all: Determine how to
regulate and tax slot
machines for one South
Florida county, devices
which many Republican law-
makers didn't want to see
approved in the first place.
SThen, as always when law-
makers are in session, some
will attempt to get their col-
leagues to consider any num-
ber of other subjects. Senate
President Tom Lee, for
exainple, wants the
Legislature to consider new

byists, and House
Democrats - along with
some Republicans - want to
deal with several post-hurri-
cane issues they fear can't

Typically for such issues

Key issues before
lawmakers in a special
session that begins Monday:
* MEDICAID: Gov. Jeb
Bush's administration wants
to overhaul the Medicaid
system, shifting it from one
where government simply
reimburses doctors and
hospitals who care for poor
people to one where recipi-
ents are put into a network
of doctors - much like
many private insurance
plans or HMOs work. The
idea is that they'll get better
preventive care, and will
have less need for more
expensive treatments. Many
advocates are fearful that
some people who most need
help with health care -
those with particularly diffi-
cult to treat and expensive
diseases, and those in rural
communities with few doc-
tors - may not get guaran-
teed access to the care they
need. If approved by the
Legislature. the plan would
be tried first in a couple of
test communities before
going statewide.

Last spring. Broward vot-
ers said OK: Nlianii-Dade
voters said no. Lawmakers
were then required to
write a law spelling out
how the machines should
be regulated. what kind of
machines quality, how
many each facility could
have and how they should
be taxed. But last spring,
they couldn't reach agree-
ment on those issues. A
judge then said Broward

many of those in the

Home Depot

a big win for

our county

The presence of a Home
Depot store in Lake City is
good on several levels. We
were glad to hear of the
store's intent to build a
retail location on Branford Highway
near the intersection of U.S. 90.
Home Depot will be good for
competition in the home-improvement
sector and competition is always
healthy in retail. It's also no secret that
building supplies are in high demand in
our region as growth continues to be
off the charts locally.
There's plenty of opportunity for
another player in this market.
Aside from the offerings the new
store will bring, its presence in our
market gives our entire community
another level of positive visibility.
With the retail base we currently
offer, plus the presence of a new Home
Depot store, our town looks more like a
city. It draws attention from additional
retail, restaurant and recreational
developers who are likely to take a
more serious look at us.
It solidifies what they already
believed about Lake City and Columbia
County being the epicenter for growth
in North Florida. Seeing significant
developments already in place just
helps seal the deal.
We welcome additional retail
developments that will further
strengthen our market and our

Two seldom asked

questions about UF

ere are two
questions few
people ever ask
about the earliest
days of the
University of Florida.
First, when the decision was
made way back in 1905 to
move the university from Lake
City to Gainesville, why didn't
the state move UF to
Jacksonville? It would have
been a logical move.
Jacksonville was just 60 miles
from Lake City, almost as
close as Gainesville. Also,
Jacksonville was Florida's
major city, at the time; it was
the hometown of Florida's
new Governor Napoleon
Bonaparte Broward; and it
was the preferred choice of
UF president Andrew Sledd
and other influential leaders
like legislator Henry Holland
Buckman and Gov. Broward's
campaign manager, Nathan P.
Bryan. So, in the face of all
that, why didn't UF move to
The answer may have been
political revenge. Although
Governor Broward lived in
Jacksonville, he had won the
governor's race despite losing
the vote in his home county of
Duval, and even in his own
ward. Thus, Gov. Broward
apparently felt he owed
Jacksonville no favors and
showed no interest in locating
the university in Jacksonville.
Here is the second
question. Many people believe
Gainesville got UF over Lake
City because Gainesville had
offered the university free
water in perpetuity (forever.)
So, does Gainesville still give
UF free water?
The.answer is no.
Gainesville gave UF free water
for 67 years, until 1972. At that
time, Gainesville was paying
about $35,000 per month for
UF's water bill. The City of
Gainesville felt that cost was
getting excessive so they
asked the legislature for relief.
The legislature agreed and so
UF has paid its own water bill


Jail conditions
must improve
To the Editor:
I applaud and thank you
for your recent editorial on
the Columbia County Jail.
My office (3rd Judicial
Circuit Public Defender)
represents this county and
six others. We (Columbia)
have the worst county jail of
all seven, although we are
the largest county.
You are right on point that
our local government stop
talking and start building. We
are fortunate that a tragic
situation has not occurred
for either the correctional
officer staff or the inmatess.

that just as you do.
As a whole, the general

lengthy felony sentence, but
rather serving a
misdemeanor sentence

Early present

something to

cheer about

t looks like home improvement buffs are
getting an early Christmas present with
the publication in Saturday's Lake City
Reporter that Home Depot will be
building a nearly 140,000-square foot store
at the corner of U.S. 90 and Branford Highway.
We're glad to see this new retailer coming to
our town. Nothing against Lowe's. The Lake
City Lowe's is a well-stocked store with good
prices. Our community and its immediate
environs has grown to the point where it can
support two big box home improvement stores,
however, and
hopefully not
hurt existing
businesses like ,
Lake City
Industries and
Jim Poole,
executive Michael Leonard
director of the Phone:(386) 754-0417
Lake City-
County Chamber of Commerce, has been
publicly confident that the Lake City area is
primed for another boom of population, retail
and job growth. He seems to be right.
This year started with New Millennium
Building Systems hiring e employees for their
start up operation on Lake Jeffery Road. Tinico
has added scores of new skilled workers this
year, and countless other businesses have
opened or expanded.
By any measure, it has been a good year for
industry. And the prospects for 2006 look
equally good.
As everyone who has had their eyes open
while driving in Columbia County knows, new
home construction and subdivision
development has continued at breakneck speed
this past year.
The Nov. 28-Dec. 4 lakecityreportercom poll
asks respondents what they think Columbia
County's population will be in 2010, noting that
our current count is around 63,000. A
.remarkable 37 percent said our population
would be 80,000 at the end of this decade.
Another 28percent opted for 75,000, 31 percent
for 70,000 and only four percent for 65,000.
Clearly local people - users of
lakecityreportercom, at least - think we're
going to grow like gangbusters.
And on the retail side, many medium- to
small-size shops and restaurants have opened
this past year. We've hit lots of singles and a few
doubles all year long. Now at the end of the
year comes the bases-clearing Home (run)
Not to put a dark lining on this silvery cloud,
but the failure to adequately prepare
infrastructure for this growth, especially
wastewater collection lines and treatment
capacity, will put a stop to our community's
progress. A dead stop.
This newspaper editorialized Dec. 1 about
the need for action by the City of Lake City's
Wastewater Advisory Committee. Let me add to
the pressure others are,putting on the group.,
A meeting is planned for this Wednesday
night at City Hall so the members can update
the community on studies they've conducted
and commissioned on greater Lake City's
wastewater treatment needs. Progress needs to -
be made, timetables set and specific objectives
determined at this meeting.
The recent drought has lessened the capacity
overflow crisis that brought about the creation
of this committee. Let us not be lulled into a
false sense of security, however.
Heavy rains will come again. And even
without a hurricane, extending sewer lines and
increasing treatment capacity are essential
elements to this community's future.

Petty politics on a national level usually
doesn't bug me too much. I've become numb
by the process. The words petty and politics
have almost become a redundancy. No issue is
too large or too small to escape the hatchet
men from both parties.
President Bush is seen wearing one Navy
blue sock and one black. Oops. That's proof
he's the goofiest president ever and, while
we're at it, also shows he has no clear strategy
for winning and/or exiting the war in Iraq.
This\pettiness ticked me off this past
Thursday, though, when I read this
newspaper's Scripps Howard News Service
report that the bonehead Republican leaders of
the U.S. Senate refused to bring up a simple
consent resolution honoring the
30th anniversary of Bruce Springsteen's "Born
to Run" album.
Their reasoning is that Springsteen spoke out
for John Kerry in 2004. So what? The release of
"Born to Run" was a seminal moment in rock

Alito's opponents looking

at what they say are

omissions in his record

AP Special Correspondent
Challenging his candor and
by implication his character,
Samuel Alito's critics are seiz-
ing on a handful of inconsis-
tencies and omissions in the
record to raise doubts about
the judge's fitness for the
Supreme Court.
By themselves, the issues
seem minor:
* shifting explanations for
Alito's participation in a 2002
case involving the mutual
fund company Vanguard.
Alito had pledged in 1990 to
Congress that he would step
* a statement that Alito did
not recall his membership in
a controversial conservative
Princeton alumni group until
recently seeing a document.
* a 1985 Reagan adminis-
tration legal brief seeking the
reversal of a landmark abor-
tion rights case. The material
was not sent to the Senate
along with other records.
Critics of the federal
appeals court judge say they
detect a pattern.
"A credibility gap is
emerging with each new
piece of information released
on Judge Alito's record," said
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, a
member of the Senate

victims," police said
Ralston G. Davis Jr., 21, of
Sunrise, was taken into
custody on first-degree
murder charges Friday night,

Davis was being held
Saturday in the Broward

Sunday, a jail official said. It
could not be determined if he
had an attorney.
Lauderhill police got first
word of the attacks when
they responded to reports of
gunshots around 10:40 p.m.

Friday at an apartment,
Coleman-Wright said. They
found Proby dead inside with
multiple gunshot wounds.
Proby's roommate, who
was not identified, said the
shooter was Davis. Police

the nature of their relation-
ship, Coleman-Wright told the

South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
A short time later, police
received 911 calls reporting
gunshots an Exxon gas sta-

a photo session Thursday in Stamford, Conn.

Beyond Massachusetts, gay

couples face uncertainty

AP National Writer
In more than one sense,
Brian Rice and Jason Kelliher
are pioneers. They were
among the first same-sex part-
ners in the nation to marry
legally - last year in barrier-
breaking Massachusetts -
and now are among the few
such couples to forgo their
much-prized rights by moving
to another state.
Their new home,
Connecticut, is among the
most liberal on the issue; its
legislature has approved civil
unions that extend marriage-
like rights to gay couples. But
that option doesn't tempt Rice
and Kelliher.
"We've already reached the
pinnacle of what a couple can
hope for - a marriage
license," said Rice, a lawyer.
"Civil union is a second-class
citizenship.... We don't want to
take a step backward."
Yet Rice and Kelliher know
that if they venture to any
other state - except back to
Massachusetts - their status
wouldn't improve. While a few
states have recognized same-
sex couples, many more :are
strengthening bans on gay

marriage. Conservatives in
some places - including
Michigan and Ohio - are now
taking aim at existing
domestic-partner benefit
'There are lots of families in
states where it's harder to be a
strong family, where the state
does everything it can to weak-
en you," said David Buckel, an
attorney overseeing marriage
issues for the gay rights group
Lambda Legal. "It's challeng-
ing, it's discouraging, at some
*points it's enraging."
Rice, 27, and Kelliher,
29, moved from Boston in
August 2004 because of a job
offer for Rice in Stamford,
Conn. Kelliher now works for
an apartment management
company, and qualifies for
domestic-partner health
benefits from Rice's law firm.
They initially hoped
Connecticut would recognize
their marriage, but the state
decided otherwise. They can't
file joint state tax returns, as
they could have in
Massachusetts, and worry that
they need to execute a will
because Connecticut wouldn't
consider the survivor a spouse
in the event one of them died.

Marine deaths in Iraq don't

The grim news that a road-

Authorities confirm bodies are missing siblings

Associated Press

HUDSON, Ohio - Two
small bodies found buried off
Interstate 80 with duct-tape
crosses over them were identi-
fied Saturday as the New
Hampshire siblings killed by
their father 2'/ years ago,
authorities announced.
Dental records confirmed
that the bodies are those of
Sarah Gehring, 14, and her
brother, Philip, 11, said
Summit County Medical
Examiner Lisa Kohler.
"It's just been truly this
unbelievable burden not hav-
ing them found, and so that
does feel like somewhat of a
relief," the children's mother,
TeriKnight, said Saturday. "It's
tough, but it's bentl than not
knowing where they are."
A woman walking her dog
had discovered the children's
shallow grave on Thursday in a
wooded area near Hudson,
about halfway between
Cleveland and Akron. The area
closely fit the clues the

children's father had given
authorities before killing him-
self, from the makeshift cross
in a rural area near a highway
to the bell-shaped concrete
sewer connectors, fence .and
wood pile nearby.
Manuel Gehring had also
told authorities he wrapped his
children in plastic and buried
them with duct-tape crosses on
their chests.
The children disappeared
Gehring in 2003 amid a cus-

in Concord, N.H. Gehring later
said he had pulled off a high-

children, then drove for hours
with their bodies in his van
before burying them.. '
After Gehring was arrested
in California, he told investiga-
tors'he couldn't remember
where he had buried the bod-
ies. He gave vague clues that
led to repeated searches along
a 700-mile stretch of Interstate
80 from Pennsylvania to

Key al-Qaida associate killed in

Pakistan in apparent rocket attack

Associated Press

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -
One of al-Qaida's top five lead-
ers, said to be responsible for
planning overseas strikes, was
killed by Pakistani security
forces in a rocket attack near
the Afghan border with
U.S. help, American and
Pakistani officials said
Hamza Rabia, a key associ-
ate of al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-
Zawahri, died Thursday in an
explosion in the North
Waziristan tribal area, and his
remains were identified in
DNA tests, Information
Minister Sheikh Rashid
Ahmed said.
Two U.S. counterterrorism
officials, who spoke only on
condition of anonymity
because of the information's
sensitivity, confirmed Rabia's
death but would not elaborate
on the circumstances.
The officials said Rabia was
believed to be an Egyptian and
head of al-Qaida's foreign oper-
ations, possibly as senior as the
No. 3 official in the terrorist
group. That would put him in a

tier just below Osama bin
Laden and al-Zawahri.
"He was al-Qaida's No. 5 and
this is what we know," Ahmed
told The Associated Press.
Rabia filled the vacuum
created this year by the
capture of the previous opera-
tions chief, Abu Faraj al-Libbi,
the two U.S. officials said.
As head of operations, Rabia
would have been responsible

for training, recruiting,
networking and, most impor-
tantly, planning international
terrorist activities outside the
Afghan-Pakistan region.
One of the officials said
Rabia also may have been
involved in operations inside
the region.
He had a wide array of
jihadist contacts, the other
official said, and was believed

Insurgent attack kills 19 Iraqi soldiers

Insurgents launched a coordi-

Saturday, detonating a road-
side bomb and then firing on
the patrol, killing 19 and
wounding two, officials said.
The attack took place near
Adhaim, about 60 miles from
Baghdad, Iraqi officials said. It
came two days after a roadside

In Berlin, the German
government said it was making
intense efforts to secure the
release of an aid worker and
her driver kidnapped in Iraq on
Nov. 25. In a video made public
Tuesday, kidnappers threat-
ened to kill Susanne Osthoff,
43, unless Germany stops deal-
ing with the Iraqi government.,
Foreign Minister Frank-
Walter Steinmeier told
reporters that "regrettably, we
have not succeeded in the first
week in establishing, indirect
or directly, contact with. the
kidnappers." '
t'Clahcellor Angela Merkel
has said Germany will Aot be
"blackmailed" in the case.
Germany ardently opposed
the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq
and refused to send troops
there. However, .it has been
training Iraqi soldiers and
police outside the country.
The Al-Jazeera network

broadcast a videotape and
statement Friday in which the
kidnappers of four Christian
peace activists threatened to
kill the hostages - two
Canadians, an American and a
Briton - unless all prisoners
in U.S. and Iraqi detention
centers Wvere freed by Dec. 8.
Foreign Office Minister
Douglas Alexander,
interviewed by the British
Broadcasting Corp.,
condemned the release of the
latest hostage video.
"We are concerned about
the welfare of the hostages and
we deplore the release of these
videos, not least because of the
great distress 'to'he ~amily'of

(Norman) Kember and the
other families involved, but
our policy on this is
well-established," he said.
A leading member of the
British anti-war movement,
Anas Altikriti, arrived Saturday
in Iraq to try to win the release

of the hostages.
The Christian activists -
Kember, 74, of London; Tom
Fox, 54, of Clear Brook, Va.;
James Loney, 41, of Toronto;
and Harmeet Singh Sooden,
32, of Canada - had been
repeatedly warned by Iraqi and
Western security officials that
they were taking a grave risk
by moving about Baghdad
without bodyguards.
The activists were members
of the Chicago-based Christian
Peacemaker Teams. On
Saturday, the group appealed
to kidnappers to release their
'hostages. '' : .

Obscure al-Qaida chemist worries terrorist hunters

AP Special Correspondent

He's a mystery in a red beard,
with a strange alias and a
degree in chemical engineer-
ing. In the hands of this alleged
al-Qaida operative, it's a spe-
cialty that summons visions of
poison gas and mass terror.
Al-Qaida is "wedded to the
spectacular," notes U.S. coun-
terterrorism analyst Donald
Van Duyn, and elusive
Egyptian chemist Midhat
Mursi was said to be exploring
such possibilities when last
seen, brewing up deadly com-
pounds and gassing dogs in

Van Duyn's FBI and other
U.S. agencies are interested
enough in Mursi to have post-
ed a $5 million reward this year
for his capture. Egypt's gov-
ernment reportedly is interest-
ed enough to have seized and
locked up his two sons in an
effort to track down the father.
The U.S. reward poster says
the alleged bombmaker, also
known as Abu Khabab, literally
"Father of the Trotting Horse,"
may be in Pakistan. But "we
don't think there's really a
good fix on where he is," Van
Duyn said in a Washington

expert on Islamic extremists.
"He could be in any country,
under another ID. Or he could
be on the Afghan-Pakistani
border, with Zawahri."
Unlike fellow '. Egyptian
Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin
Laden's deputy, Mursi is large-
ly an unknown figure. "Here in
Egypt, his name doesn't repre-
sent anything for us," said Diaa
Rashwan, who follows Islamic
militancy for Cairo's Al-Ahram

Strategic Studies.

trict of rutted streets and

Islamist researchers of
London's Islamic Observation
Center. It was a period when
Muslim militancy flared in this
'Mediterranean city, as zealots
burned liquor stores and other
"non-Islamic" targets.
Salah, who writes for the
pan-Arab daily al-Hayat, said it
isn't known what Mursi was
doing in the 1980s, but he was

men considered the core of

A senior Pakistani

missile attack triggered a huge
explosion in a stockpile of

Other Pakistani intelligence

played a critical role in tracking
down Rabia and "eliminating

Earlier, a top government
administrator, Syed Zaheerul
Islam, said Rabia died in an
explosion while making bombs
at a home near Miran Shah.
Islam said the blast also killed
four other people, including
two local residents, and left two
others injured, who have not
been identified.
Pakistani President Gen.
Pervez Musharraf confirmed
Rabia had been killed.

The city's No. 7 Water Plant
"has been closed due to the
possible contamination of the

who answered the phone at
the Jiamusi city government
headquarters. He refused to
give his name. The official
Xinhua News Agency said the
plant supplies 70-80 percent of
the city's drinking water.
Jiamusi is the second-
biggest Chinese city affected
by the spill, after the major
industrial center of Harbin
upstream suspended running
water for 3.8 million people for
five days after benzene
polluted the water supply.
Jiamusi also has access to
deep wells that will not be
affected by the contamination
and so should be able to
continue to supply drinking
water, said an employee of the
water company, who refused to
give her name. But hundreds
of villagers living near Jiamusi
have also been ordered to stop
using water from shallow wells
on the river bank.

Death toll in Chinese coal

mine explosion hits 169

Associated Press
BEIJING - The death tol
from a coal mine explosion in
northern China reached
169 Saturday, making it one of
the country's worst mining dis-
asters in decades, while a sepa-
rate flood trapped 42 miners,
officials said.
The explosion and flood are
the latest disasters highly
embarrassing to China's
Communist-led government,
which has repeatedly prom-
ised to do more about mine
Mine accidents in China
killed 6,027 people last year,
according to government fig-
ures - a rate of 16 deaths a
Many of the disasters are
blamed on managers who
ignore safety rules or fail to
install required ventilation or
fire control equipment, often in
collusion with local officials.
The issue is further complicat-
ed by the country's soaring
demand for power to drive its

booming economy.
The death toll from an explo-
sion, a week. ago at the
Dongfeng Coal mine in
China's bitterly cold northeast
rose to 169 after searchers
found three more bodies in the
underground debris, the offi-
cial Xinhua News Agency said.
Rescuers searched shafts at
the mine in Heilongjiang
province for two more missing
workers, it said.
Meanwhile, at the private
Sigou Coal Mine in Henan
province's Xin'An county,
76 workers were underground
when the mine flooded around
11:40 p.m. Friday, Xinhua said.
Thirty-four miners escaped.
The mine had no safety
license, and mine owner Jin
Changsong allegedly went into
hiding after the accident,
Xinhua reported.
About 200 rescuers were
pumping water out of the mine
and trying to reach those
trapped, Xinhua said, but there
was no indication if they had
survived or not.

Parade organizers
announce changes
Organizers are hoping the
2005 Lake City Christmas
Parade will possess a more
festive and holiday spirit than
that of last year's.
More strict rules are being
enforced this year to'keep the'
holiday spirit alive, rather
than local people and
businesses advertising
"We want the entries to
look like they have at least
attempted a reasonable effort
at decorating," said Harvey
Campbell, vice-chairman of
the Downtown Action
Campbell said if vehicles in
the parade and floats were
not properly decorated, they
would not be allowed to
participate in the parade.
The parade rules state 500
lights must be used on floats,
and parade participants must
portray a holiday, children's

or whimsical theme.
All participants must also
be dressed appropriately, in
themed costumes, outfits or
There is also a 150-person
limit per unit, and only
20 walkers per unit.
"Last year, we had
600 people in one unit,",,
Campbell said, indicating the
number was more than they
wanted per float unit.
Also, horses are now
relegated to the end of the
parade, and must have their
own accompanying clean-up
"Last year, we had the
horses in the front of the
bands," Campbell said. "It
wasn't a good mix."

City Council to consider contracts

lyoung@lakecityreporter. com
Finishing business before
the Christmas Parade begins
caused city officials to move
the Lake City Council
meeting to 5:30 p.m. Monday.
The agenda is light to
ensure city officials have
enough time to take their
places for the community
parade that begins at
7:30 p.m., said Lake City
Manager Joe Cone.
Among items on the agen-
da are two resolutions, one
ordinance and awarding an
annual contract for concrete.
Resolution No. 2005-112
would authorize rescinding
restrictive covenants on the
Lake City Women's Club
Property, that were put in
place when the city was
going to take a grant to have
repairs and renovations
But the grant required the
city to do things it had not
intended to d6 and put the

cost of the project above the
funds budgeted for it.
"We decided not to do the
Women's Club grant. It had a
deed restriction, so we had to
remove that," Cone said.
Resolution No. 2005-114,
Transition Plan is to increase
handicapped accessibility to
City Hall.
'This is a transition plan to
increase the handicapped
access for City Hall. There
are a few minor issues that
we have to complete, which
we have until 2007. But we're
trying to move ahead with
those ADA (American
Disabilities Act) compliance,"
Cone said.
Ordinance No. 2005-1049
on the Florida Retirement
System (FRS) Pension Plan
will have a first read. It was
pulled from the agenda of the
Nov. 21 council meeting.
"We had to do a ballot and
we had to get the ballot
approved by Tallahassee.
The city plan is to enroll in
the Florida State Retirement

Plan so any new hires after
Jan. 1 would be FRS
members," Cone said.
The reason the city needed
ballots was for the employees
to be able to make a choice
between the new system and
the existing retirement
'The city has its own sys-
tem. Those employees have
an option of either staying
with the city system or
enrolling in the FRS," Cone
"We don't want the employ-
ees to think we're forcing
them to do anything."
As for the contract for the
concrete the city uses, Cone
said they award a 12-month
contract "so we don't have to
bit it out every time."
Also on the agenda is a
proclamation to declare the
city's support for a local
group that is raising funds for
victims of Hurricane Katrina
to rebuild the city of
Waveland, Miss., on the Gulf

CAP celebrates 61st anniversary

From staff reports
December 7, 1941, is a
time in our nation's history
that many remember as a
pivotal event.
Similar in scope to Sept.
11, or Neil Armstrong's land-
ing on the moon, Dec. 7 is a
day that all who were alive at
the time remember exactly
where they were at the time
of the Japanese attack on
Pearl Harbor.
However, in the week
prior to that, other events
were happening - some
with long-ranging impact.
Peace talks were under
way with the Empire of
Japan. The economy was
finally staggering out of the
Great Depression, and peo-
ple were wondering whether
or not the U.S. would enter'
the war, and how.
On Dec. 1, just six days
prior to the nation entering
the war, the United States
Civil Air Patrol (CAP) was
formed. Although it is part of.
the Air Force now, the CAP.
predates it.
Originally, the purpose of
CAP was for liaison and
reconnaissance flying only.
However, the civilian group's
mission expanded when
German submarines began
to prey on American ship-
ping off .the eastern
seaboard of the United

States. From'March 5, 1942,
to Aug. 31, 1943, a relatively
unknown war raged off of
our coast between CAP
Coastal Patrol planes and
German submarines.
The basic mission wasn't
easy. Due to wartime restric-
tions and shortages, CAP
planes were often fabric cov-
ered frames with basic
instrumentation. Keeping
them flying wasn't easy, but
mechanics performed
The "typical" mission was
to take off at "O-dark-thirty"
from a grass field that was
usually built, maintained and
guarded by CAP personnel.
The planes then flew into the
rising sun and established a
patrol about 50 miles off the
However, the missions
paid off. During that
18-month period, CAP pilots
flew 86,865 missions out of
21 bases along the east
coast, flying for a total of
244,600 hours. ,,
This mission was not with-
out cost, though. During that
time, 26 CAP air crew mem-
bers were killed in the line of
duty, and another seven
were injured, and 90 planes
were lost.
Today, CAP no longer flies
combat missions. However,
it still plays an important
role in this nation's defense.

Today, its mission is more
humanitarian. CAP nation-
wide owns more than
550 aircraft. Its nearly 65,000'
members own an additional
4,000 planes. This makes
CAP the largest fleet of
single-engine aircraft in the
Now, CAP flies more than
120,000 hours while con-
ducting 95 percent of all the
inland search and rescue
missions in the United
During 2004 and 2005, the
hurricanes in Florida,
Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana and Texas showed,
how important and relevant.
CAP is in today's world.
Following the terrorist,
attacks on Sept. 11, CAP:
planes flew photography
missions over the nation's,
closed airspace.
Now, CAP is gearing itself
toward life in the 21st centu-
ry. Even with the advance-
ment of technology, the. mis-
sion remains the same, like,
offering orientation flights
and leadership training and
emergency services.
This weekend, cadets are-
encouraged to wear their-
dress blue uniforms to their
church or synagogue in'
honor of this anniversary.

champion Ray Floyd and
son Robert were a stroke
back along with Vijay and
Qass Singh and 2003 cham-
pions Hale and Steve Irwin.
"We played well," Vijay
Singh said. "I hit some
so-so shots on the front and
actually Qass hit some
really good shots to keep
us going. We have to play
well again to have a
chance. It's not going to be
easy and we know that."
The Irwins played with

ber of birdie putts,
including a 40-footer on the

Billy D gets win No. 200

Associated Press

Brewer had dunks, fast-break
layups and 3-pointers. But his
favorite play was his lone assist.
That's not too surprising,
especially considering Florida
coach Billy Donovan calls this
his most unselfish team in
10 seasons.
Brewer had 25 points,
seven rebounds and five steals
to lead the 11th-ranked Gators
to an 80-47 rout of Central
Florida on Saturday.
"I derive a lot of pleasure
watching these kids play," said
Donovan, who reached 200
wins quicker than any other
coach in school history. "We
don't have guys in the locker
room talking about not scor-
ing enough points or not get-
ting enough shots. They play
the right way. They really do."
Florida improved to 7-0 for
just the third time, joining the
1951-52 and 1984-85 squads.
Donovan credits the start -
which came despite Florida
losing its top three scorers
from last season - to his
team's unselfishness.
The Gators finished with
21 assists on 31 field goals.
Al Horford scored a career-
high 17 points and added five
rebounds and four steals.
Joakim Noah had 13 points,
five rebounds and five assists.
Brewer was even better. He
was 10-of-14 shooting from the
floor and sparked a 29-8 run to
open the second half after the
Gators started the game with
little energy. He also was 2-of-
3 from 3-point range and per-
fect in three attempts from the
foul line.
Brewer was 7-of-8 from the
field against Alabama State,
making him 17-of-22 shooting
in his last two games.
Donovan said Brewer set-
tled for too many long-range
shots earlier in the season.

so- Not'

Florida's coach Billy Donovan talks with his team in the second half
as they push over Central Florida 80-47 in Gainesville on Saturday.

That definitely wasn't the case
Saturday as the Gators scored
34 points in the paint.
Brewer had 15 points in the
first 11 minutes of the second
half. He had a dunk, a putback,
a jumper, a 3-pointer, a layup, a
reverse dunk and made a spec-
tacular play on an alley-oop
pass from Taurean Green.
Brewer caught the ball in the
air, well short of the basket,
and then extended his 6-foot-8
lanky body for another layup.
"His game is slashing, driv-
ing, getting into the lane,"
Donovan said. "He made some
spectacular, athletic plays."
Brewer's basket gave the
Gators their biggest lead, 65-
31 with 9:37 to play. They
cruised from there.
Brewer was pretty good
defensively, too. He held UCF

leading scorer Josh Peppers to
four points on 1-of-4 shooting.
Justin Rose led the Golden
Knights (4-1) with 12 points
and was the team's player in
double figures.
Donovan downplayed win
No. 200, but did point out that
he also picked up his first
career victory with the Gators
against the Golden Knights.
The 40-year-old coach got
his 200th victory in his 292nd
game - 80 games faster than
Norm Sloan.
Sloan, who had two coach-
ing stints at Florida (1960-66
and 1980-89), won 235 games
in 15 seasons and reached win
No. 200 in his 372nd game.
"This has been a great
place," Donovan said. "It's
hard to believe it's been
almost 10 years."

25 points to help North

North Carolina showed it is

Insurance carriers say
this area should be
spared increased rates.

troberts@lakecityreporter. com
While State Farm Florida Insurance
Co. has been given approval to
increase homeowners insurance rates
across the state, rates are not
projected to increase in Columbia
"In Columbia County, along with
surrounding counties Baker and
Hamilton, there will be no homeown-
ers insurance increase for next year,"
said Danny Sheppard in the
Communications and External
Relations Department of State Farm
Florida Insurance Co.
State Farm, the state's largest home
insurer, will increase homeowners
insurance rates in the state of Florida
at an average of 8.6 percent average
statewide. The increase will go into
effect on Feb. 1 for new insurance
policies and Apr. 1 for renewals.
"Some counties will experience an
increase as high as 42.5 percent, while
others will see a decrease around five
percent," Sheppard said. "It just
depends on the county."
Neighboring Suwannee County, for
instance, will see a 14.8 percent
increase in homeowners insurance.
Sheppard said there are multiple
reasons for an increase in payments
for homeowners insurance, and not all
of them revolve around the threat of
"There are various reasons why
homeowners insurance rates are
going up," Sheppard said. "Building
costs, material costs and labor costs
may have increased in a certain
county and not another. Certain areas

Some counties, such as Broward,
Pasco and Hernando, are experienc-

Allstate Floridian, the state's third
largest home insurer, will also be
increasing insurance rates statewide.
'"The statewide average will
increase approximately 28 percent,"
said Deb Clouser, Field Corporate

Clouser was unsure if rates would

breakdown available. However, she
said that counties along the coast are
more likely to see bigger increases

Bruce Drawdy, owner of Drawdy
Insurance in Lake City, explained
homeowners insurance rates are set
by zip code. If a zip code has high

losses in that area, there is a
possibility rates will increase.
However, Drawdy isn't concerned
by an increase in rates.
"We've acquired markets lower
than that which is out there now, so
the rate changes are not effecting us
and we're able to stay competitive,"
Drawdy said. 'We represent enough

Big plant closings make

for a hard adjustment for

nearby small businesses

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK -The news
was painful and familiar for
small business owners in
Doraville, Ga., when General
Motors Corp. said this month
it planned to close its assem-
bly plant in the Atlanta sub-
urb. They'd already been
through a GM closing in 2000,
and the shutdown of a nearby
steel plant.
But Tommy Galloway, who
owns Galloway Hardware in
Doraville, sounds optimistic
about the future. The area has
coped with change in the past,
and so his small business has
"It's going to affect
Doraville for at least a while,"
said Galloway,. noting that the
GM plant is a big contributor
to the city's tax revenues..But,
he said, "we adapt."
GM's announcement that it
would close the Doraville
plant and 11 other U.S. facili-
ties was followed this week by
Merck & Co.'s news that it
would shut down or sell five of
its plants. The news obviously
was unsettling for the small
business owners who depend
on the big plants or their
employees for their livelihood.
But a nearby plant closing
isn't necessarily a fatal blow to a
small business, even though
there have been many stories
throughout the years about
towns that withered as their fac-
tories disappeared or military
bases were dismantled.
The chances for a small
business's survival can,
depend on whether local offi-
cials are successful in bring-
ing other big employers but
also on how the company
itself adjusts to the changed
Galloway's business took a

huge hit when GM shut its
nearby parts center - the
facility itself was a big
'They were one of our bet-
ter accounts," Galloway said,
estimating that he had
between $10,000 and $12,000
in annual sales from GM. "It
just went kaflooey all at once."
But Galloway's store has
persevered amid an influx of
new residents to the area. And
he noted that other plant sites
closed and sold off in recent
years have been developed,
helping other small
"People are talking about
this being something similar,
only bigger and better," he
Often the hardest hit when
a plant closes are the restau-
rants, diners and bars that
have been gathering places
for workers before and after
their shifts.
Cheryl Purifoy bought the
Cardinal Cafe in Camden,
Ark., around the time that
International Paper Co. closed
its plant in the town, in
January 2001. "For the first
six months after I bought it, it
was really bad," she said.
Since then, business has
improved, in part because din-
ers are now coming from an
industrial park that has been
developed in the past few
years. But Camden's popula-
tion has nonetheless declined
as people moved away-- it's
been estimated that 1,000 jobs
were lost when the IP plant
closed - and Purifoy is still
feeling the impact of the
She said she makes enough
money to pay her staff of
16 and give herself a small
living, but little more. Still, she
said, "it's just me, so I don't
require a lot," she said.

Tootsie Roll
Imagine getting top long-term
returns by skipping the risk of high
technology and instead investing in
conservative growth engines. An
example would be Tootsie Roll ,-r-
(NYSE: TR). Its 16.11 percent <,:.
compounded annual return
from 1957 through 2003 would have
turned $1,000 into more than a mil-
lion smackers. In recent years, Toot-
sie Roll had no debt and accumu-
lated a sizable cash pile. In 2004, it
spent S212.5 million to buy a strong
market position in bubble gum from
Concord Confections, getting the
Double Bubble brand, among others.
The diversification move didn't
juice up Tootsie's recent third-quar-
ter results very much. Revenue was
up 11 percent, and net income rose
an anemic 2.6 percent. Everything
from borrowing.costs for the acqui-
sition to higher raw material costs
hurt net income. Still, the company's
after-tax profit margin was a strong
15.9 percent - a much better return
than the company was earning on
its cash in the bank.
Tootsie Roll is poised to repay the
acquisition debt in 2006 and is using
its excess cash to repurchase shares
and pay a 0.9 percent dividend. It

CHAMBER: Lake City is growing strong

Continued From Page 1C
Dinner and meeting at Lake
City Community College. The
featured speaker will be
author, consultant and
professor, Jerry Osteryoung.
Executive Director Jim Poole
has had a busy year fielding
inquiries on the area's econom-
ic development. Many times,
these discussions are private
and in various stages of
progress. Jim travels and
attends both state and regional
meetings to keep us abreast of
the latest in development activ-
ities meant to further the
prosperity of our local area.
At the state level, our mem-
bership in both Enterprise
Florida and the Florida
Economic Development
Council has paid dividends this
year. Regionally, we continue to
be active in the Rural Issues
Working Group, North Florida
'Economic Development
Partnership, and North Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council. These organizations
provide network opportunities,
education, and development
resources as we solicit and
attract new business and help
local businesses increase their
local investment.
As members of the Lake City
Wastewater Committee, Jim
Poole and myself met with Joe
Cone, City Manager and Dale
Williams, County Manager to
discuss alternative methods
and strategies to increase
wastewater capacity. As your
Chamber representatives, we
drafted a wastewater memo
update and forwarded it to
Cone and Williams. The memo
asked the respective govern-
mental bodies to hold a joint
meeting to set a course of
action. The Chamber looks for-
ward to working with both the
city and county in meeting the
needs of our community.
Twelve, 20 and 3 may not be
the winning Florida lottery
numbers, but they are the num-
ber of times we held mixers,
cut the ribbons to celebrate
new businesses, and turned the
dirt at groundbreaking. It was
an active year apd we want to
thank the Chamier' staff for
their coordination of these
events and the ambassadors
and the business community
for their participation.
This is a sure way to meet
new Chamber members, espe-
cially those who are new to our
community. Generally, there
are 75to-100 in attendance at
our mixers and slightly less at
other events. I want to thank
Mayor Witt and his wife for
their support at our Chamber
events. Mayor Witt and Jodi
have a great attendance record
and we enjoy their support and
contribution to our community.
Our "Crossroads" Chamber
newsletter is now sent to our
members via e-mail as an
enhancement. The newsletter
looks great thanks to Assistant
Executive Director Gina
Reynolds. You can advertise in
the newsletter at a nominal cost
and reach more than 700 cham-
ber members. It is the best bar-
gain that I know of for reaching
the local businesses. Contact
us and we can schedule your
next advertising campaign in
the Chamber newsletter. The
newsletter is printed compli-
ments of Lake City Community
College. Thanks to Dr. Chuck

Hall and his staff for their
Our map "expert", Mike
Kennon, directed the develop-
ment of our latest county map.
Our offer for advertising on the
county map was a sell-out with
our members. The maps are a
popular item for newcomers to
our area. Maps are sent to
those inquiring about our area
from out of town. Mike has
assured me that he did include
all the streets. When you see
Mike, be sure to thank him for
a job well done.
A legislative delegation from
the Chamber visited
Tallahassee on April 6 to meet
with state legislators and dis-
cuss local issues of importance
to our members and the com-
munity at large. We want to
thank Fred Lawson for his
interest in government rela-
tions and taking the lead to
arrange this trip. Later in the
year, Fred again organized the
annual legislative breakfast for
over 120 members. Thanks to
the Lake City Community
College and our sponsors for
an outstanding turnout.
Our Sixth Annual Business
Expo was held on April 23 at the
Lake City Mall. Our Chamber's
Business and Education
Committee, chaired by John
Kasak, did a great job along
with Gina Reynolds, the
Chamber's Assistant Executive
Director. Thanks to the Lake
City Mall staff, John Newman at
WNFB Mix 94.3 and the radio
personalities at Mix 94.3. The
2000 people in attendance visit-
ed with 30 exhibitors looking
for additional business expo-
sure. Our feedback indicates
the expo was a huge success.
Our quarterly luncheon held
in May saluted the 2005 Small
Business of the Year. We were
honored to have Gil West,
President/COO of TIMCO
Aviation Services as our guest
speaker. The event was attend-
ed by more than 200 Chamber
members and provided another
opportunity to network and
meet new members. Bob and
Andrea Smith, owners ,of
Smitty'$ Western Store,..were
recognized,,as S mall BIsiness
of the Year. They were a great
choice and truly give back to
the community.
Our business members par-
ticipated in Project Catch this
year and employed 9 students.
As the demand for skilled
workers continues to increase,
it is important to develop our
young people to fill key super-
visory positions in the future.
The Project Catch program is
one way for our members to
provide, our students with
valuable work experience.
The 20 students who partici-
pated in Chamber's Leadership
Lake City spent three months
educating themselves about
social, political, cultural and
economic facets of our commu-
nity. The 2006 class is being
organized and I invite anyone
interested to sign up now. This
is a great opportunity to meet
our members and learn about
our community.
The job fair conducted by
the Florida Crown provided
over 23 of our local members
with a chance to interview
more than 435 job seekers in
June. Meally Jenkins and
Sherry Moran did a great job

organizing this event. This is
another event where you can
meet our members, interview
serious candidates, and net-
work with local businesses.
The 2005 Rural Deal of the
Year Award, the 2005 Retailer
of the Year Award for
Leadership, and the Governor's
Newcomer Award, are reflec-
tive of the quality Chamber
members that are operating
here in Lake City. The Lake
City/Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce, Scaff's
Inc., and Hunter Panels were
recognized for their work in
economic development, leader-
ship, and enriching our

transportation issues.

various topics that are impor-
tant for women in the business
world, such as wills, charitable
contributions, and emergency
management. Most luncheons
are attended by 25 to
40 women.
Overall, the Chamber has

Modest duplex a charmer

By Associated Designs

Each of the Rothbury's two units
looks like a single, charming Crafts-
man-style cottage. And in fact, each
is. This is a duplex where only the
garages share a common wall. Each
two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit is
a mirror image of its opposite, so
only one will be described.
Two gables face the street. The
lower one highlights the entry
porch, which is supported by hand-
some wooden columns. The posts,
in turn, are supported by larger,
squared bases covered with lap sid-
ing. This porch is large enough for
hanging an old-fashioned wooden
swing, great for enjoying a warm,
breezy afternoon.
The upper gable has a steeper
slope, but echoes the gable below
while accentuating
the multipaned Patio
windows on the 7'x 6'
second floor.

The City of Lake City has implemented
a temporary disinfectant change from
chloramines (a combination of chlorine
and ammonia) to free chlorine from No-
vember 2005 through January 2006. This
temporary change is part of the continual
maintenance process. Water utilities us-
ing chloramines must periodically
change to using chlorine alone, known
as free chlorine, to maintain optimal lev-
els of disinfection within the water dis-
tribution system. During this temporary
change to free chlorine, our water con-
sumers may notice a slight change in the
taste or smell of their tap water. The
mild chlorine taste and smell is normal
and poses no health risk. Most customers
will not need to take any precautions as
the water remains, sage to drink and is
treated according to both state and feder-
al standards. Dialysis patients and fish
owners, however, will need to make ad-
justments during this period to remove

for holiday

n addition to the
Christmas tree and
mistletoe, the
poinsettia has become
a symbol for the
holiday season. The
poinsettia gets its name, as
we know it, from Joel R.
Poinsett, a United States
diplomat to Mexico.
Poinsett introduced the
plants to his South Carolina
home in 1825, where he
gave them to friends as
gifts. The scientific name
for the poinsettia -
Euphorbia pulcherrima -
translated to mean Athe
most beautiful Euphorbia.
In Mexico they are also
known as the "Flores de
Noche Buena," or Flowers
of the Holy Night, since
they bloom during the
Christmas season.
The poinsettia "flower" is
actually quite tiny hiding in
the center of a whorl of
colorful leaves known as
bracts. Thanks to plant
breeders, there is an
assortment of colors, sizes
and shapes of bracts to
enjoy. Some varieties have
large flat bracts. Others are
curled up resembling a rose
blossom. Some are
speckled or variegated. We
traditionally think of
poinsettias as being red but
there are now several colors
variations to choose from.
In addition to being
decorative, the poinsettia
was used by the Aztecs for
practical purposes. From its
bracts they extracted a
purplish dye for fabrics and
cosmetics. The milky white
sap was made into a
medicinal preparation to
treat fevers.
You may have seen a
weed in the ditch banks and
road sides resembling a
poinsettia. This Florida
native weed is known as
Mexican fireplant or painted
euphorbia. It is a cousin to
the poinsettia but less
showy. It can be attractive
in the Fall but is considered
a noxious agricultural weed
in our State.
There is a persistent
rumor that poinsettias are
poisonous plants due to the
latex in their sap. To test
the plant's toxicity, Ohio
State University conducted
a study in the 1970s which
showed. that a 50-pound
child could eat 500 of the
bitter tasting bracts
(colorful leaves) and only
suffer a mild upset stomach.
Individuals with allergic
reactions to latex however
might consider using gloves
(non-latex of course) when
handling these plants.
Poinsettias are tropical
plants. They grow best if the
temperature is between
65 and 80 degrees. They
.can tolerate an occasional
cold night in the upper
30s but should not be left
unprotected at lower
temperatures. They tend to
shed some leaves or floral
bracts due to the shock of
the change when moved
from the cold outdoors into
a warm, dark room.
To keep your poinsettia
alive after the holidays,
keep the plant somewhat

Branford business keeps
holiday manifest alive with
ample selection of trees.
For some, it is a Thanksgiving
tradition that is looked forward
to with anticipation and
excitement. For others, it is a
dreaded chore that takes away
TV football time. But in all households
that celebrate Christmas, its something
that "just has to be done."
At Jones' Tree Farm off of County Road

Jones work for an entire year to meet the
needs of our area's "real tree shoppers."
While national chain stores offer cut trees
and even sometimes live trees in pots,
Jones' Tree Farm is one of a few local
farms that still offer the opportunity to cut
the tree of your choice.
For many years, the Jones have run a
cross-country operation. Growing Leyland
Cypress, Virginia Pine, Sand Pine and
Southern Red Cedar trees on their 16-acre
farm in Branford, they also have a
northern tree farm where they grow the

Travelers spending holidays away from home

Statistics show that
1-in-20 Americans
travel for holidays.
Associated Press

NEW YORK - Every year
at Christmas, Santa pays a visit
to the Harraseeket Inn in
Freeport, Maine.
And if his jingling sleigh
bells should wake up any of
the children staying at the
hotel, that's OK. It's a reassur-
ance that Santa hasn't forgot-
ten them, even though they're
spending � Christmas away
from home.
To the grown-ups, inn
owner Chip Gray makes a
small confession.
'"The sleigh bells we shake
at about 1 a.m. outside are the
same ones my dad fooled us
with when we were little," he

These days, rituals like this
are becoming as common at
hotels as they once Were at
"Once upon" a time, big fam-
ily holidays like Christmas and
Thanksgiving were stay-at-
home traditions," Gray says.
"Over time, with the faster
pace of today's world, we have
seen the trend of families com-
ing here to stay and eat, so the
stress of cleaning and polish-
ing and preparing for a huge
formal dinner and visit doesn't
wear out Mom or Grandma.
Now they come and enjoy the
holiday as well as the rest of
the family."
About one in 20 Americans
spends Christmas away from
home, according to a Maritz
Research Poll that has come
up with the same results three
years in a row. This year's poll
of 2,007 randomly selected

Marine Corps teaches core lessons

Special to the Reporter
Since my earliest days as
an algebra instructor, I have

difficulty of
subject. Burlage
This story
is dedicated to those students
who fear algebra.
When I graduated from
college in 1970, the United
States was heavily engaged in
an armed conflict half a world
away in a little country
known as Vietnam. I had no
desire to join in that conflict,
but my draft board thought
otherwise when they
reclassified me as 1A (ready
for drafting). I decided to join
a Detroit, Mich., company of
Marine Corps Reservists in
hopes that I might be able to
avoid Vietnam.
Joining a Marine Corps
Reserve unit was easy (sign
on the dotted line) but
becoming a Marine was
going to be another story. I
did not consider myself as a
natural candidate for the
Marines. I was not a "jock" in
high school or college. My
only sport was swimming
and I played saxophone in
my high school band. I began
to worry about my ability to

make it through the
physically grueling Marine
'Corps Boot Camp.
After arriving at boot
camp, however, I soon
discovered that as a 22-year
old, I had more physical
stamina and ability than
many of my 18-year old
counterparts. I did not realize
until about five weeks into
training that my biggest chal-
lenge would come from the
M-14 rifle. I was issued one
of these rifles during the first
week of training and I had
been taught to carry, present,
field strip, clean and reassem-
ble it. In the fifth week,
however, I had to learn to
become a marksman with it.
I grew up in a family that
had no guns. I had never
handled a high-powered rifle
before let alone shoot one.
But the Marine Corps takes
great pride in its
marksmanship and if I was
going to become a Marine, I
had no choice but to become
a marksman myself. Our
platoon spent two weeks at
the rifle range. During the
first week, we did "snapping-
in" exercises where we
learned to hold the rifle
properly in order to fire
accurately. During the sec-
ond week we spent four days
in actual live firing practice
on the range. Day five was
"qualifying" day (or "not").
During my first four days
on the range, I was not a

very good shooter. I only
made a qualifying score
possibly once or twice during
eight practice sessions and
my scores on those occasions
were just barely high enough
to qualify. On the night
Before day five, I awoke
around midnight to the smell
of beer breath and the sound
of our platoon's toughest drill
instructor inviting me out for
a little one-to-one midnight
chat. To this day, I do not
remember what he said
because I was so terrified
during the encounter. I do
remember that he brought
me a beer that night and that
he did not hit me (extremely
unusual behavior on his
Day five came. I marched
to the range with my platoon
determined to use everything
that I had been taught and
determined to qualify. On
that day, I really surprised
my platoon and myself. I not
only qualified as a marksman,
but I was awarded an expert
badge for my nearly flawless
score on the range. I was
'later awarded a special
"Leatherneck" medal
because I was among the top
four marksmen in our
platoon and because our
platoon had scored more
points that day than any
other platoon on the range.
By the grace of God, howev-
er, I have never had to use
the deadly skills that I

mastered during those ten
weeks of boot camp and my
subsequent six-year enlist-
ment in the United States
Marine Corps Reserve.
What does this have to do
with learning algebra? The
Marine Corps taught me six
basic truths about learning.
First, human beings can
learn to do just about
anything (including algebra).
Second, lack of experience or
fear of failing have nothing to
do with ones' ability to learn
algebra. Third, things don't
always go well during
practice. This is normal and
it is the reason for practicing
more. Fourth, instructors
really do want to see their
students succeed. Fifth, we
can learn from our mistakes
and we can succeed because
of them (not in spite of
them). Sixth, just because we
might never actually use a
skill does not make it any
less worthy of learning.
Learning has its own rewards
that carry benefits for the
learner far beyond the
classroom. Semper Fidelis!

Widow realizes the perfect

gift is giving love to others

DEAR ABBY: My husband
and I were married for 35 won-
derful years, and Christmas
was our favorite time of year.
As I sit here this morning, I
remember all the time we
wasted worrying about getting
the "perfect" gift for everyone,
when in reality the most per-
fect gift you can give is yourself
and your love.
We had seven beautiful kids,
23 beautiful grandchildren and
five adorable great-grandchil-
dren, so it took a lot of time to
shop for everyone. I realize
that the most perfect gift
would be to have my darling
husband here with us. He
passed away Oct. 10, 2003.
I now understand that the
perfect gifts were the love and
closeness we shared together,
and you can't buy that in any
department store.
So, Abby, please suggest to
your readers that when they're
agonizing about finding the
perfect gift, they should look
right under their own noses.
They may find they already
have it. - MISSING HIM
Thank you for the poignant
reminder that too often we
take for granted those intangi-
bles that are the most pre-
cious. You and your darling
husband shared a life together
filled with an abundance of
riches. I hope that knowledge

Abigail Van I

will bring you comfort during
this time and for the rest of
your holiday seasons to come.
DEAR ABBY: Please warn
your readers that their Web
pages and blogs could stand in
the way of securing a job! Just
as employers have learned to
read e-mail and, blogs, they
have learned to screen
candidates through their sites.
Many people in their 20s
and 30s wrongly believe their
creations are entertaining and
informative. Employers are not
seeking political activists, evan-
gelizers, whiners or tattletales.
They do not want to find them-
selves facing a lawsuit or on
the front page of a newspaper
because a client, patient or par-
ent of a student discovered a
comment written by an
The job market is tight, and
job seekers must remember
their computer skills can either
help them land a position or
destroy a job prospect. -


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Take a position that will
put you in the driver's seat. Use
your energy wisely and begin
making some of the changes
you've been planning to do to
your home. Leave time to
socialize. **
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Stay active today.
Downtime will lead to dissatis-
faction. Visiting friends or
attending an interesting exhibit
will stimulate ideas. A relation-
ship with someone special will
take an interesting turn.

GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Put a little extra push on a
pending deal. The more you do
to position yourself, the better.
An opportunity will develop
through someone you used to
work with. Emotional matters
can be dealt with. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Your emotions will take
over, making it easier for you to
let others know your thoughts.
This is a perfect day to explore
the possibility of a new


Eugenia Word

relationship. -***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
You may find yourself thinking
more about someone you met
through work. Don't miss out
on an opportunity because you
don't know how to approach
this person. Your determina-
tion will bring good results.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Much will evolve from the
conversations and interactions
you have with others today. Get
involved in community events
Sor social activities that interest
people from all different
backgrounds. ***kk**
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): You will be tempted to try
something that is not good for
you. Think before you take a
chance that could ruin your
reputation, relationship or even
your health. **
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): You owe it to yourself and

have opened up a line of
thought I'll bet a lot of job appli-
cants - and future job appli-
cants - have never consid-
ered. Googling a name isn't dif-
ficult, and it could lead to an
applicant's blog. Most blog-
gers write to be read, and
invite people to comment.
Prospective employers are
certainly within their rights to
make decisions based upon
what they read.
DEAR ABBY: Last week,
my family suffered the loss of
my grandfather. He . was
Catholic, the only Catholic in
our immediate family, and his
funeral was held in a Catholic
church as he wished.
When it came time to
receive communion, a family
friend encouraged my grand-
mother and the rest of the non-
Catholic family members to
receive communion. Should
we have received communion
out of respect for our grandfa-
ther, or was it right to stand by
our own beliefs? - GRIEV-
showed respect for your grand-
father by attending his funeral.
Communion is a sacred rite in
which only practicing
Catholics participate. You were
correct to refrain from doing

the one you love to pay a little
attention to what life is really
all about. A time to relax, share
thoughts and understand
what's best for you in the
future will give you a lift.

Dec. 21): Changes in your
personal life will take you by
surprise, but will also help you
make a decision you have been
putting off. Secrets may be
revealed, giving you a much
better understanding. A
partnership will develop. ***
Jan. 19): Consider what's
best for you today. Doing
things for someone else will
leave you feeling cheated and
may ruin the connection you
have to this person. Get out
and meet new people. r***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18): Nothing will be out in the
open or made available for you
to see. You will have to act on
your own instincts, especially
in relationships. Be observant
and listen to what someone
else has to say. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): You'll have plenty of
opportunities when it comes to
love, friendship or even busi-
ness partnerships. Money is
coming in your direction but
not for the reason you expect.
A fast reaction may be
required. ****
Birthday Baby: You are
solid and stable, with ,charm,
insight and a thought-provok-
ing mind. You have skill in find-
ing solutions, empowering oth-
ers and seeing yourself and
your loved ones through thick
and thin.

Grateful Dead approves downloads

Associated Press
a short, strange trip it was.
After the Grateful Dead
angered some of its biggest
fans by asking a nonprofit Web
site to halt the free download-
ing of its concert recordings,
the psychedelic jam band
changed its mind Wednesday.
Internet Archive, a site that
catalogues content on Web
sites, reported recordings of
Grateful Dead concerts for
download after the surviving
members of the band decided
to make them available again.
Band spokesman Dennis

McNally said the group was
swayed by the backlash from
fans, who for decades have
freely taped and traded the
band's live performances.
"The Grateful Dead remains
as it always has - in favor of
tape trading," McNally said.
He said the band consented
to making audience record-,
ings available for download
again, although live record-
ings made directly from con-
cert soundboards, which are
the legal property of the
Grateful Dead, should only be
made available for listening
from now on.
The soundboard recordings

are "very much part of their
legacy, and their rights need to
be protected," McNally said.
Representatives for the
band earlier this month had
directed the Internet Archive
to stop making recordings of
the group's concerts available
for download. But fans quickly
initiated an online petition that
argued the band shouldn't
change the rules midway
through the game.
"The internet archive has
been a resource that is impor-
tant to all of us," states the peti-
tion, which also threatened a
boycott of Grateful Dead
recordings and merchandise.
"Between the music, and

interviews in the archive we
are able to experience the
Grateful Dead fully."
The Grateful Dead disband-
ed in 1995 following the death
of guitarist and lead singer
Jerry Garcia. The group once
set concert attendance
records and generated mil-
lions of dollars in revenue
from extensive tours.
With concert tickets now
removed as a source of rev-
enue, sales of the band's
music and other merchandise
have become increasingly
important in an age where
music is distributed digitally
instead of on CDs, vinyl and
cassette tapes.

cut your own" families. The
children especially love the
process of picking the tree and
helping or even doing the
cutting themselves.
On the last day of
November, James Derksen
and Jeanne Derksen made
their third annual trip from
Old Town to pick and cut their
own tree. This year, the
selection was a seven-foot
Virginia Pine. As Jeanne fret-
ted about whether it would be
too tall, James made sure that
they showed the Jones their
framed photograph of the tree
they bought and decorated
last year.
The Briggs family, Donna
and Charles and their kids,
Char-Lee, Ona Lee, Nikolas
and Garrett, wandered in and
out of the rows of cut trees
searching for the right one.
Formerly from Lakeland, but
with family in the Lake City
area, the Briggs had for years

made a Thanksgiving ritual of
bringing back to Lakeland a
Jones tree. With their move to
O'Brien this past summer, the
Bi-iggs have no intention of
changing that tradition ... it's
just a lot easier now. And even
teenagers can sometimes sur-
prise you.
As one family searched for
their own tree, their teenage
daughter spied the small live
potted cedar trees and insisted
that they just had to get it for
Grandma so she could plant it
in the yard after Christmas.
And even my husband and I
had for years made a trip from
Fort Lauderdale to choose
and cut our own trees at Jones
Tree Farm and continue to do
so now that we live in this
wonderful part of the state.
So maybe, the Jones family
is not just growing Christmas
trees ... They are growing

This is the third
year in a row that

perfect tree at

begun to warm, cut off the fad-
ing bracts, leaving 4-6 inches
of the stem on each branch.
Begin fertilizing with a well-
balanced fertilizer and move
the plant outdoors. Around

this schedule.

Despite gas prices,

ski industry has high

hopes for good season

Associated Press Writer

LEY, Maine - Autumn
snowfalls have delighted
skiers from coast to coast,
allowing many resorts to
open earlier in the season
than usual and fostering opti-
mism in the industry for a
busy season.
And so far, there's no evi-
dence that higher gasoline
costs will keep skiers away.
Some smaller resorts think
they may even benefit from
high prices at the pump by
drawing local skiers who
might otherwise, drive to
bigger mountains
Maine's preseason sales of
season lift tickets and lodg-
ing are ahead of last year's,
said Greg Sweetser of the
Ski Maine Association.
"We don't want to be in
denial on this thing (fuel
prices)," said Sweetser, "but
now, all indications are
This year, Maine's ski sea-
son began before Halloween,

trudged to the top of
Sugarloaf Mountain to take
advantage of an early 40-inch
dumping. Next door in New
Hampshire, 4 feet of snow

A snowboarder makes his way down Sugarloaf mountain, which is covered with a fresh blanket of
snow during a surprise storm that left more than a foot of snow on Oct. 25 in Carrabassett, Maine.

Mountain to open several
trails before Halloween.
Across the continent in
Washington, Crystal
Mountain opened Nov. 2 -
the earliest since 1994 -
thanks to snowfall of up to
3 feet in some areas.
Loveland Ski Area in
Colorado opened its season
even earlier, on Oct. 14.
Bookings at major western
ski resorts were up 6.6 per-
cent from where they were
Sept. 30 of last year, accord-
ing to the Mountain Travel
Research Project, which

tracks the ski industry.
In some areas, such as
Lake Tahoe, Calif., bookings
are expected to rise sharply.
The Lake Tahoe Visitor's
Authority predicts an 18 per-
cent increase in the number
of nights booked in local
hotels this winter.
And nationally, the trend is
positive, with records set in
tickets sold by the ski indus-
try in four out of the last five
winter seasons in terms of
numbers of tickets sold, says
the National Ski Areas

The outlook was similar
elsewhere in New England
as well 'as other regions of
the country. Heather Atwell
of the Vermont Ski Areas
Association said that based
on early bookings, "they're
still fairly certain people are
still going to come."
Just a month ago, the aver-
age retail price for regular
gasoline nationally was
$2.60 per gallon, 81 cents per
gallon more than it was last
year at the same time,
according to the American
Petroleum Institute.

TRAVEL: People on the move during holiday season

Continued From Page 1D

Neubert, general manager of
Hotel Andalucia, in Santa
Barbara, Calif., understands.
His guests, by "letting the
experts spoil them, forgo the
stress of spending the holiday
season - the drama, the extra
cooking! - with family."
For some families,
Christmas away has become
as normal as going to
Grandma's house. Every other
Christmas for a decade, two
dozen members of the
Follansbee clan have gathered
at The Asilomar Conference
Grounds hotel in Pacific
Grove, Calif., coming from as
far away as New York and
'The simplicity of the locale,
in a facility without televisions,
radios, or phones in the
rooms, allows for the family to
focus on the gathering, and
not be distracted in ways that
we face daily the rest of the
year," said Stephen
Follansbee. "We can have fun
together, walking, talking,

eating, working on puzzles,
and playing on the grounds, or
at the beach."
Rebecca Barfknecht spent
last Christmas at The Asilomar
with 12 others. They decorat-
ed a small tree in a living room
reserved for their family, and
later roasted marshmallows
Over a bonfire. "It was a nice,
relaxed place to be together,"
she said.
For guests at the Biltmore
Inn, one, of the biggest draws
is the nearby Biltmore House.
Thousands. of visitors pour
in to see the holiday decora-
tions at the. historic home, a
virtual castle built in 1895 for
George W. Vanderbilt III.
But guests at the inn, which
is located on the grounds of
the estate, have exclusive
access to the Biltmore House
on Christmas Eve from 3:30
p.m. on.
'The fireplaces are lit, and
we have a candlelight tour of
the estate," said Marjorie

David Workman of Winter

They've spent Christmas at
the Biltmore, in Alaska and in

ily members beforehand. And

The body of 53 year old Pedro Maldonado, a sus pect in a double homicide, was found dead inside. He allegedly killed wife, son in S. Fla., took own life here. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Three boats worked their way around the north end of Lake Montgomery Wednesday morning, slicing through the still water and the heavy fog to reach the patchwork of litter cluttering the popular fish ing spot. On each boat, men from the citys Public Works Department and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reached their nets deep into the lilly pads and weedy edges to capture the floating debris clinging to the lakes surface. Only once in the last 20 years has Lake Montgomerys shoreline been cleaned by local or state officials, estimated Thomas Henry, director of the public works department. It needed it. Milk gallons, tangled fishing line, water bottles, chip bags, styrofoam cups and countless cigarettes have accumulated over time along the shoreline and vegetation. Is this going to be a 100 percent fix? No, Henry said. Is the lake going to be 100 percent clean today? No. Its just going to take time. On Nov. 6, lakeside resident George Hudson brought attention to the litter by contacting the Lake City Reporter.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Phil Collins brings charity to Florida MIAMI BEACH — Singer Phil Collins is expanding his philan-thropic prowess to South Florida through his Little Dreams Foundation. The British musician announced Wednesday in Miami Beach that his nonprofit will help South Florida children with artis-tic and athletic dreams to fulfill their potential. Collins created the organization in 2000. Children are selected based on talent, motivation and enthusiasm. Once accepted, they get to work with mentors, who have included Tina Turner, Natalie Cole and others. Past Little Dreams children include figure skater Timonthee Manard and Joe Frank, who currently performs with Earth, Wind and Fire. Collins got his start as the drummer for “Genesis” in the 1970s before becom-ing a solo star in the 1980s with hits such as “In the Air Tonight.”Student shot at Orlando-area HS WINTER GARDEN — The principal of an Orlando-area high school says a student has been shot but is alert. West Orange High School Principal Doug Szcinski posted on the school’s Facebook page that a stu-dent was shot Wednesday afternoon and taken to a hospital for treatment. Szcinski says the school is on lockdown with safety procedures being taken. Szcinski says deputies are at the high school investigating the shooting.Family of shooting victim files lawsuit TAMPA — The Florida family of a woman slain dur-ing the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard is the first to file a lawsuit against the government and defense contractors, alleg-ing that officials ignored red flags about the killer’s dete-riorating mental health. The suit on behalf of the family of Mary DeLorenzo Knight was filed Tuesday morning in federal court in Tampa. The lawsuit named the Navy, the Department of Veterans Affairs and two defense contractors as defen-dants. It’s seeking at least $37.5 million in damages. “We’re all just torn apart,” said Patricia DeLorenzo, the sister of the victim. “We just want to get through this.” Mary DeLorenzo Knight was one of 12 people killed by Aaron Alexis on Sept. 16 before he was killed in a shootout with police.Man pleads not guilty in killing MIAMI — A South Florida man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to first-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of his wife, whose bloody corpse was later depicted in photos he posted on Facebook. The plea was entered during a brief hearing by an attorney for Derek Medina, 31, who also faces charges of illegally discharging a firearm inside their South Miami home and with child neglect without violence. The young daughter of Medina’s wife, 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso, was in the home at the time, but was not harmed. No decision has been made on whether the state will seek the death pen-alty, said Assistant State Attorney J. Scott Dunn. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Yvonne Colodny set a Jan. 29 status hearing to discuss the potential death penalty and scheduled a tentative trial date for March 17.Cities lead nation in foreclosures ORLANDO — Two Florida cities lead the nation in foreclosures of high-end properties worth $5 million or more. The research firm RealtyTrac said in a report Wednesday that Miami and Orlando were at the top of the list of foreclosure activity on homes in the $5 million-plus range. The number of high-end foreclosures is relatively small — only about 200 compared to the 1.2 million properties that had foreclo-sure activity this year. Award-winning chef Judy Rogers dies SAN FRANCISCOJudy Rodgers, the award-winning chef-owner of San Francisco’s Zuni Cafe, has died. She was 57. Gilbert Pilgram, her business partner and longtime friend, said Rodgers died Monday after suc-cumbing to cancer of the appendix. The James Beard Foundation named the Zuni Cafe 2003’s Outstanding Restaurant in America. Rodgers won Beard’s Outstanding Chef award a year later, beating out notable chef Mario Batali and others. Rodgers started cooking in the 1970s after being inspired by Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse, where she met her business partner Pilgram. Pilgram says he’ll continue to run Zuni’s kitchen.Boy’s ‘gun art’ on display at art fair MIAMI — Charles Gitnick is only 11 years old, but his art appears far more mature. The sixth-grader from Los Angeles places toy guns that look like real weapons on a canvas and paints over them, purposely camou-flaging them in an abstract design. He says it’s a way to express his fear of gun violence. His work will be on display at an exhibit, “3D Gun Art,” which coin-cides with Art Basel Miami Beach, one the world’s most prestigious contemporary art fairs. The event is the U.S. extension of the fair held each June in Basel, Switzerland. It runs through Sunday. Charles started painting landscapes, seascapes and palm trees at age 5. In 2011, he wrapped a toy rifle in newspaper clippings of violence and mounted it on a canvass of simi-lar news articles. “This seemed like a way to say to Wednesday:6-3-4 Wednesday:2-6-9-5 Tuesday:2-8-17-24-29 Correction The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2013 3AFrom staff reporterColumbia County has been chosen to receive $9,121 to supplement emer-gency food and shelter pro-grams in the county. The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of rep-resentatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Jewish Federations of North America; The Salvation Army; and United Way Worldwide. The Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capac-ity of food and shelter pro-grams in high-need areas around the country. A Local Board made up of a local government official, a faith community represen-tative, and representatives from American Red Cross, Another Way, Catholic Charities, Columbia County Senior Services, Suwannee River Economic Council, The Salvation Army, United Way of Suwannee Valley, and Vivid Visions will deter-mine how the funds award-ed to Columbia County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is respon-sible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program. Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies cho-sen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of gov-ernment, 2) be eligible to receive Federal funds, 3) have an accounting system, 4) practice nondiscrimina-tion, 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 6) if they are private voluntary organizations, have a vol-untary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Columbia County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously with Another Way, Catholic Charities, Suwannee River Economic Council, United Way of Suwannee Valley and Vivid Visions partici-pating. These agencies were responsible for pro-viding 947 meals, 757 shel-ter nights and assistance with 12 rent/mortgage pay-ments. Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Jayne L. Wilson, United Way of Suwannee Valley, at 386-752-5604 x 102 for an appli-cation. The deadline for applications to be received is December 13. County to receive $9,121 in federal emergency funds Non-profits must apply by Dec. 13 to receive funds. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.comLake City residents can discuss annual statistical crime data with the Lake City Police Chief during her quarterly Breakfast with the Chief Saturday at 10 a.m. in the First Apostolic Church. Over a traditional breakfast of eggs and sausage, Chief Argatha Gilmore will detail a mixture of annual in-house statistics from the police department and quarterly reports from Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Held Saturday between 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., the event is free for the public to attend. “This is the last Breakfast of 2013,” said LCPD public information officer Steve Shaw. “If any-one has not had the oppor-tunity to come to any of the others, I would encour-age them to come to this one to see what the Lake City Police Department is doing in the community.” Similar to previous Breakfasts, the police department plans to pres-ent their report card on crime. Normally, Shaw said these are quarterly statis-tics, but on Saturday they will be yearly statistics. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement semi-annual Uniform Crime Report, the city’s crime index decreased 2.9 percent, sliding from 580 in 2012 to 563 in 2013. Breakfast with Chief Saturday at 10 a.m. slay both his wife and son sometime Monday, accord-ing to BSO’s preliminary investigation. Following the apparent double homicide, Maldonado Sr. drove to Tallahassee and checked into a room at the University Inn on Tennessee Street, BSO said. He attacked another son, Jose Maldonado, 21, a student at Florida State University, around 7:00 a.m. Tuesday, BSO said. Maldonado nicked his elder son in the ear after fir-ing upon him with the cross-bow and attempted to stran-gle him, authorities said. Although Jose Maldonado was able to escape and elude his father, he did not report the inci-dent to local authorities, BSO said. Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter said staff checked Maldonado Sr. into Cabot Lodge around 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, but could not speculate why Maldonado chose to stop in Lake City. Maldonado Sr. allegedly confessed his crimes to a man in Miami, who in turn contacted Broward deputies around 4:00 p.m., BSO said. “When [SWAT] got to the house, it was dark, there was no response,” BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella said. Broward deputies found the wife and son deceased inside after they entered the home around 6:00 p.m., they said. BSO’s Moschella said that initial interviews with the surviving son found that Maldonado Sr. once imported and exported police equipment to South America. He had no criminal history and the family, origi-nally from Ecuador, were once legal residents of the United States but their visas had expired, reports said. “The whole family was possibly facing deporta-tion to Ecuador, the son told us,” Moschella said in her interview. “This was not a family beset with domestic violence. He was depressed because of his financial situation.” BSO said it did not have the crossbow as of press time. Broward deputies immediately issued a nationwide alert for Maldonado Sr.’s arrest, requesting assis-tance from CCSO regard-ing a lead produced by confidential investigative techniques, authorities said. “We did canvassing of the area and were able to able to locate [Maldonado’s black Volvo SUV] at the Cabot Lodge,” Hunter said. CCSO SWAT deputies evacuated the hotel guests from their rooms around 11:00 p.m. while crisis negotiators made several attempts to contact Maldonado Sr. via his cell phone, room phone and over megaphone, before making the call to force entry into the room around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, Hunter said. Initial investigations revealed Maldonado Sr. had not made contact with anyone at the hotel follow-ing his check-in with front desk staff Tuesday morn-ing, he said. Authorities said they won’t be able to pinpoint Maldonado Sr.’s time of death until the medical examiner in Jacksonville produces an autopsy report. People were still trying to piece together the situ-ation and find some under-standing as to what may have triggered Maldonado Sr. to go on his rampage. “There’s just so little known at this point to try to infer a level of motivation without knowing the back-ground of the individual or individuals,” said University of Florida criminology pro-fessor Frederick Shenkman. “One is trying to connect the dots and there aren’t even enough dots to con-nect at this point.” On Wednesday morning, some of the Maldonados’ neighbors said that although the connected townhome walls are thin, there was no indication of the violence that unfolded inside the residence. Marie-Anne Sabourin said she was feeding a neighbor’s cat in Weston when deputies ordered her to remain indoors on Tuesday. “You’re used to seeing this on the news,” she said. “There are no words to express how sad, and to be here not knowing what’s happening inside. It’s ter-rible; it’s terrible.” Neighbors described the Maldonado family as quiet individuals, who kept to themselves. But the teen boy’s drumming was con-stant, they said. He was described as having been a member of the band at nearby Cypress Bay High School. In fact, Sabourin said she would sometimes lin-ger in her car if she heard him playing as she came home, because the beats were good. The boy’s Facebook page has photographs taken while he was making music and with bandmates. Ana Maldonado, who shares Maldonado Sr.’s last name but is not relat-ed, said she never heard a disturbance in the home. She said the family had moved in little more than six months ago. “Truthfully, it’s a really horrible tragedy,” she said. “I had trouble sleeping.” Officials said the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Tallahassee Police and Lake City Police also contributed to the investigation.

BY EMAIL: Teacher grading system still broken Eating my way through the holidays Making short work of a bully A ll the talk about bullying these days reminded me of a day long ago when one bully was cured and went on to be a good wife and mother. This is a true story and none of the names have been changed to protect the innocent, but since I think they’re all dead now, I’m safe. Immediately after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the federal gov-ernment was faced with the dilem-ma of what to do with the Japanese residents who were all congregated on the west coast of our United States. They were considered security risks because California was the nearest access point for a Japanese invasion of the US, and these folks could be potential allies of such an invading force. Therefore, some 120,000 Japanese men, women and children, were rounded up and sent to vari-ous compounds scattered mostly over the west, but some as far east as Arkansas. They were released following the Japanese surrender on September 2, 1945, but these uprooted people really had no place to go, plus our government wanted them scattered and divided in order to remove any future threat. That’s how my little town in Missouri got two Japanese families who were sent there and put to work in the kitchen, dorms and outdoor campus of the Presbyterian Orphanage. There were only two school-age children in these fami-lies, a girl and a boy, cousins who were both in the 8th grade in 1945. They spoke little English, had been interned in a fenced compound for more than three years and were now literally thrown into a class-room of white children, some of whom had lost loved ones at the hands of the Japanese. The only concession they had been given was the choice of a new American name, presumably to make them less conspicuous. The boy chose Gordon and the girl chose Rose. Can you imagine what these children must have felt? They were stared at like apes in a cage, even though our teacher, Miss Nellie Halter, had prepared us for their arrival and tried to keep the disrup-tion to a minimum. While Gordon was quite bright and learned quick-ly, Rose was just the opposite. She was “retarded,” a common expres-sion at that time, and it was obvious she was not capable of learning in a regular classroom. My best friend’s name was Peggy, and although she was an average student, she was not ath-letic in any way, so when we chose sides for a ball game, she was usu-ally the last selected. But with Rose on the scene, she was suddenly better than someone else, so she set about drawing it to everyone’s attention. On this fateful day, poor Rose, who was not only intellectually chal-lenged, but physically challenged as well, had to take her turn at bat. Peggy began by yelling proudly, “Well, here’s an easy out!” Then every time Rose took a swing, usu-ally long after the ball had passed over home plate, Peggy would belt out some other insult. Being 12 years old at the time and full of myself, I told her to shut up, but she didn’t. Inevitably, I wiped up the playground with her, and she was in quite a state of disarray by the time Miss Nellie pulled me off her and led me to the classroom by one ear. Miss Nellie scolded me for not coming to her with the problem so she could “talk” to Peggy, but I told her I already “talked” to her and she just kept on. Miss Nellie never told the principal or my parents about the beating, and Peggy never bullied anyone again to my knowl-edge. Today, I would probably be incarcerated, but I think Miss Nellie real-ized that justice had been served and decided to give it a rest. Rose was later removed from the public school system and learned what she could at home, and Gordon? Well, he was our varsity football quarterback and class president of my high school graduation class of 1950. He immediately took off for California and has never attended a class reunion or been heard from since. The bullying of Rose was handled in less than five minutes and never came up again, but I guess there are some people these days who just don’t appreciate efficiency, effectiveness and expediency! O nce again, every single public educa-tor in the Columbia County School District got glowing reviews in annual state evaluations, released Tuesday by FDOE. This year, according to the numbers, we did even better than last. A remarkable 78.5 percent of local teachers were rated “Highly Effective,” while 21.1 percent were judged “Effective.” That’s up from last year’s figures of 57.5 percent and 42.5 percent, respectively. And just like last year, not one was rated “Needs Improvement” or “Unsatisfactory.” That would be great news.Except for one thing.According to Supt. Terry Huddleston, some local teachers could stand at least a little improvement. Their evaluations by their own principals say so.For a sizeable portion of these educators, however, other factors came into play under the rules, including school grades. The school grade buoyed their less-than-stellar individual numbers, the result being a final assessment, not of “Needs Improvement,” but of “Effective.” Of course, these instructors will still be required to complete a remedial program under state law in order to remain in the classroom. The results were nearly the same throughout the state. Overall, only 1.4 percent of Sunshine State teachers were placed in the category “Needs Improvement,” down from 1.9 percent last year. Just 0.2 percent were deemed “Unsatisfactory.”And here’s the kicker.Once merit-pay mechanisms are in place throughout the state, as required by law, these evaluations will be used to help determine just who should be rewarded with higher salaries for superb performance. So depending on just how our local merit-pay plan is configured, Huddleston observed, teach-ers who do in fact need improvement – and are enrolled in remedial programs to achieve it – could actually qualify for bonus pay. There’s something seriously wrong with this picture. We’re not down on teachers by any means.But not every member of any given profession can be equally adept at his or her job. Some indi-viduals inevitably rise to the top, and they are the ones who deserve to be rewarded. If we are to have accountability in the classroom, we first need intellectual honesty at FDOE. Evaluation systems that mask the shortcomings of those they purport to judge, don’t serve anyone well. C hristmas is a-coming, the old song goes, and the goose is not the only one getting fat. I’ve used that line before and it isn’t as funny as it used to be. Just once, I would like to eat my way through the holidays without picturing, the instant I imbibe in a bit of fudge or a swig of eggnog, exactly how it’s going to look on my hips. It’s an image I’d welcome if it ever prevented or even gave me momen-tary pause from partaking in the tra-ditional holiday eating/drinking orgy. But no, picturing how I will look doesn’t help; it only heaps a big greasy layer of guilt on top of all the fat which, either way, still ends up on my hips. My friends are no help either. Recently I received an early Christmas gift from Joy, a woman who clearly knows no shame. Having grown up, as I did, in the Deep South (where sugar and fat are two of the four basic food groups, along with alcohol and salt) Joy knows all too well my various vulnerabilities. And still, she dared to present me with a time-honored token of our heritage – a gift that can only be truly appreciated when bestowed by one Southerner on another – a big old box of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I was so touched, I could barely speak. Especially with three dough-nuts in my mouth. When I came to my senses, I offered to share one with her (not a glazed one, of course, because those are my favor-ites, but perhaps one of the tacky ones with sprinkles.) And she, bless her heart, had the nerve to say, “Oh, no, I wouldn’t think of it, they’re all for you!!” Then she pro-ceeded to tell me about her latest diet on which she has shed enough pounds to wither away from a whop-ping size 6 to a 4. What do you think? Should I give her a gallon of my grandmother’s famous “Merry Christmas Eggnog,” a recipe made even merrier by a secret ingredient that my grandfa-ther always slipped into his? Fat, it seems, is a relative term, especially to my relatives, whose standards for defining obesity vary widely. My aunt Jane, for example, a woman of uncommon kindness and grace, might describe someone (never mind who) as “a mite big-boned, but cute.” Others in my family (and they know who they are) would not hesitate to say that person is “not bad looking, if only she’d lose a little weight.” Which might explain, while I love all my kin, I liked my aunt Jane better than most. But the person I like best -in the way that he sees me, or rather, in the way I see myself in his eyes -is my brother Joe. Here’s a tip: If you want a true assessment of your weight and how you wear it, don’t step on a scale; ask a blind man. “You look good, Sister,” Joe says as he runs his hand over my face to “see” how I look. I feel good, too, when I hear him say it. Too bad I don’t see him more often. I was thinking this morning about Christmas lights. You know, those little twinkly white lights with long curly strands? By night, they look so lovely, like icicles made of diamonds. And by day, they look like gobs of tacky plastic hair. They’re the same, night or day, rain or shine, Christmas or the Fourth of July. So are we, really, despite the addition of a few extra pounds or years. The real difference, it seems, is in the kind of light that shines upon us -whether it makes us feel as lovely as diamonds or as tacky as plastic hair. My plan for the holidays is to see myself in the best light possible, in the eyes of those who love me as I am, and to reflect that same light on them. I can always diet in January.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2013 5A OBITUARIES Each month, Hudson paddles his boat onto the lake with a pitchfork, collecting garbage from around his property’s edge. While the expanse of water in front of his home remains unblemished by litter, Hudson’s view across the lake is dotted with people’s trash. He decided the pollution was just too much. A call to Lake City Public Works revealed the depart-ment believed the FWC was responsible for cleaning Lake Montgomery. However, the state agency said trash collec-tion is not a responsibility of its biologists, who monitor the local fish populations. Both agencies agreed to help get the lake cleaned — and on Wednesday, FWC provided the boats and the city provided manpower. The city’s employees arrived at the lake at 8:30 a.m. armed with approximately 100 trash-bags, each capable of holding 55 gallons. They started clean-ing the shore as soon as they arrived, using trash grabbers to reach the pieces they could. They filled 30 garbage bags by lunchtime, and even located in the lake two trashcans missing from the dock. Already the city has placed green-and-white signs near every trashcan in the park, ask-ing the visitors to “Pitch in!” “We’re doing everything we can,” Henry said. “What we’re going to have to do is figure out who is going to take responsi-bility of Lake Montgomery. It’s not really the city’s responsibil-ity to clean waterways.” Since the problem was brought to his attention, Henry worked to make the first clean-up possible by making phone calls to the FWC. The state agency jumped on board as soon as Henry contacted them. The plan is to continue to clean the lake, but he hopes to get the Suwannee River Water Management District involved. “Any boat ramp we come to, we just can’t leave it covered in trash,” said FWC fisheries biol-ogist Dan Dorosheff. “We’ve left this place because you just can’t do it all. We like to leave our areas that are supposed to be nice habitats looking clean. We don’t like litterbugs.” The three FWC boats pushed away from shore loaded with two city employees, spreading out across the lake to tackle as much trash as they possibly could. A lot of the trash was too entangled in roots and weeds to reach, even from the boat. Meat trays, lipstick containers, children’s toys — the items piled in the boat’s center, cov-ered in muck from the lake. Car oil containers, lighters and fast-food straws — there was no limit to the variety of trash the group found. But for as much as they could do, the group could only get so much. “Trash on the bottom never gets cleaned,” Dorosheff said. “It just gets buried. It gets entombed. ... This litter [on the surface] is an easy form of pol-lution to address. I can see it.” As the boat pushed through the lilly pads, remnants of trash still clung to the plants. A wake of trash, Dorosheff added. With the local FWC branched across 17 counties, Dorosheff said he has seen lakes just as pollut-ed as Lake Montgomery. The lake’s water isn’t tainted, but the floating trash visually pol-lutes the water and can cause harm to the local wildlife. Lake City resident James Montgomery came out Wednesday to help with the clean-up. After he noticed the problem when he visited the lake a couple months ago, Montgomery said he called Lake City to see what could be don. “It’s embarrassing how trashy it was,” Montgomery said, whose family gave the lake its name. “But it’s like trash on the highways, it will be back. We’re just in a throwaway society.” LAKEContinued From 1A Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterLake City Public Works crew lead-er Jody Raulerson sifts through garbage scooped out of Lake Montgomery during a clean up campaign Wednesday morning. care of yourself, following doctor’s directions and taking meds on time,” he said. Pineda has been a part of the tour since it started its showings in 2012. “This means a lot because we get to help a lot of people,” he said. “It’s best to get treated so you can find out your status before it’s too late,” he said. Pineda lives in Central Florida and has attended Faces of HIV exhibits there before and he also plans to attend the exhibit in Lake City on Saturday. “Our exhibition tells our stories, so we can educate and help others understand about the virus and cut the stigma as well,” he said. Larette King, a Prevention Training consultant with the Columbia County Health Department, said the exhibit travels around Florida and has already been to Gainesville and other central Florida towns, but this will be its first stop in Lake City. She said she hopes the exhibit has a profound impact on Columbia County residents and compels them to be tested. “We hope residents here will see the Faces of AIDS, people that are living with HIV and AIDS, and through hearing their story about how they contracted HIV and are living with HIV, will get rid of the stigma of HIV,” she said. “These are people that are showing their status and really working towards helping others.

Tigers, Indians ready to meet in first game of annual seriesBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt was an even split last year for the Tigers and Indians, so both Columbia and Fort White high school’s bas-ketball programs will be playing for bragging rights tonight. The first contest of the annual two-game series tips off in Lake City at 7:30 p.m. today. Both teams are off to impressive starts this season with only one loss between them. Columbia (3-1) dropped the first game of the sea-son, but has since rebounded to win three straight games. The Indians (2-0) enter the game with an undefeated mark and want more than anything to avoid the blemish from the hands of their rival. “We will be playing at their place and they will be fired up,” Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. “We will try to keep it close. It will be a lot different from Suwannee. We will press full court. We have decent speed and that’s what we do. We will play our game.” Fort White is coming off a 75-35 win against Suwannee High, which Columbia also defeated earlier this season, but the Tigers also had an impressive victory on Tuesday. The Tigers went over to Middleburg High and came away with a 57-47 dis-trict win. The game was out of hand early before Middleburg scored 25 points in the fourth quarter to draw the final margin to 10 points. “The game wasn’t as close as the score,” Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson said. “We didn’t take care of business like I would have liked to down the stretch. The score shrunk. I didn’t play the starters over the final 10 minutes of the game and everybody got in the contest. The good thing is that we’re now 1-0 in the district.” Darrell Jones led the way for the Tigers with 20 points in the contest. “He’s pretty solid,” Jefferson said. “I think I eluded to it in the initial preview to the season. He’s a guy that can score inside and out. He hit three 3-point shots. What’s impressive is he didn’t play very much in the second half. He had all his points in the first three quarters.” Jones wasn’t the only player in double figures for the Tigers as he was joined by Tre Simmons and Dilan Hall with 10 points apiece. Jordan Coppock and Robert Dace added five points each. Columbia now turns their attention to making it two straight against the Indians after closing out last year’s series with a home win. Jefferson knows it’s going to be a tough task after seeing what the Indians were able to do against Suwannee. “I heard they won really big,” he said. “They’re pretty good, just like they were last year. They can shoot the ball. With (Melton) Sanders and (Jalen) Wyche alone, they can give you 40 points on any given night.” Jefferson admits that the Tigers haven’t played their best game yet and it’s going to take a collective best effort of the season for Columbia to hand the Indians their first loss. “We have to play better than we did against Suwannee and we defi-nitely have to play better than we did (Tuesday),” Jefferson said. He also knows that the game will have a special feeling in the air and a Indians pressure too much for Suwannee, 75-35From staff reportsFort White High’s basketball team smoked Suwannee High, 75-35, in Live Oak on Tuesday. Melton Sanders led four Indians in double figures with 24 points. Paul Perry scored 16, Chris Cottrell scored 12 and Jalen Wyche scored 10. “I watched Suwannee and I knew their offense,” Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. “Our guys came out with full-court pressure. It was tight in the first quarter, but we got No. 13 (Kevarrius Hayes) in foul trouble early and that helped.

A 6-iron on No. 17 was good for the elusive ace. Persons topped off his first ace by joining Ed Snow, Howard Whitaker and Nick Whitehurst in overcoming the team of Dennis Hendershot, Bruce Turner, Jim Stevens and Merle Hibbard by a count of 4-3. In match two, the team of Jerry West, Jim McGriff, Eli Witt and Dan Stephens had little trouble in posting a 5-2 win over the foursome of Marc Risk, Paul Davis, Larry Ward and Emerson Darst. Risk posted the best individual score with a 38-39-77. West and “Who Dat?” Stephens checked in with rounds of 79. Stevens, Davis and Snow all shot 39 on the front side. The recent trend continued as scores in the A flight of Wednesday’s blitz were on the anemic side. Mike Jacobs (+4) and Mike Gough (+2) were on top with the day’s only pos-itive numbers. Jonathan Hope and Bob Randall tied for third with -1. Brandon Moore (+9) waltzed to a four-point win over Pete Skantos in the B flight. George Burnham, Lynn Smith and Dell Sanders were all at +3. Dennis Crawford got into the action with a skin on No. 18 that would have taken a nice pot hole payoff if he’d been in the game. Randall, Moore and Jacobs had a skin apiece. Both pot holes carried over. Randy Sommers (+8) nursed a birdie on No 1 to a one-point victory in the Saturday blitz. Jonathan Allen (+7) and Steve Peters (+6) gave Sommers plenty of competition. Keith Shaw (+3) took third place, three points better than Cory DePratter and Jerry West. Scott Kishton and Dave Mehl split the skins pay-out with Sommers and DePratter. Bruce Ford rolled in an eagle on No. 16 to finish in a first-place tie with Russ Adams at +9 in Sunday’s blitz. Dave Mehl was two points back in third place. Closest to the pin winners were Mickey Willcox on No. 5, Mike Gough on No. 7, David Rhodes on No. 15 and Mickey Wallace on No. 17. Ford’s eagle and a birdie held up for skins. Terry Hunter, Gough and Willcox had the other skins. The weekly LGA match was washed out. The pro shop is fully stocked with everything a golfer could want for Christmas. Gift cards are available. COUNTRY CLUB at LAKE CITY Ed Goff New players joining blitz We have picked up a few new players in our weekly events. A big welcome to all.

QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Nicki Newmans full crowd on hand. “It’s going to be an emotional game to start, but when all that wears off we have to be ready to fight,” Jefferson said. The Tigers have hammered in the idea of compet-ing for a full game through-out the preseason and into the early stages of the year. Tonight, they’ll have a chance to compete for a full 32 minutes in a game that the coach expects to come down to the wire. “We have to go out and compete, but we also have to play smart,” Jefferson said. “I’ve said it all year, but if we can do those two things, then good things are going to happen for us.” Jefferson said one of the keys for a Tigers’ win will be eliminating some of the mistakes he has seen early in the schedule. “We can’t do the things that we’ve done all year,” he said. And more importantly, the Tigers have to be able to combat the things that the Indians are able to throw at them. “I’m concerned about their high screen,” Jefferson said. “We have to defend it. They’ll either go to the bas-ket or they’ll kick it out for an open shot. If we can find a way to defend that, we should be in good shape for a good game.” kept the pressure on and we kept it at full speed,” Phillips said. “We played all our guys to keep them fresh and they responded well. Things may not go our way, but we have got to do what we do.” Five other Indians contributed points. Tyler Velez scored five, with three from Dre Brown, two each from Quan Porter and Isaiah Sampson and a free throw from Joe Powers. Suwannee fell to 0-2 and will play Baker County High at 7:30 p.m. today in Glen St. Mary. Fort White (2-0, 1-0) plays at Columbia High at 7:30 p.m. today. The Indians will close out the week at Oak Hall School at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Fort White returns home on Monday for a district doubleheader with the Lady Indians against Bradford High. The Lady Indians play at 6 p.m. and the Indians will tip-off at 7:30 p.m. Keystone Heights High visits at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 10. INDIANS: Down Bulldogs, 75-35 Continued From Page 1B


DEAR ABBY: I’m the proud mother of four beauti-ful children -a daughter, a son and 8-year-old twin boys. I am having a hard time get-ting people to understand that my boys, whom I rarely refer to as “twins,” are two SEPARATE people! Every year at Christmas some fam-ily members buy gifts for our daughter and our eldest son, and then ONE gift our younger boys are expected to share. Abby, they once received one T-shirt, which was meant for both of them. This also happens on their birthday. Yes, they share a room and they are twins, but they deserve the same respect as their siblings. We have never dressed them alike. They are individuals who should be treated as such like their sister and brother. Christmas is around the corner, and I don’t know how to tell my family members to please buy gifts for both the boys. I realize we have a large family. I don’t expect anyone to go broke. The gift can be a small one. Can you please help me find the right words without sounding greedy? — MOM OF FOUR IN OTTAWA DEAR MOM: Your relatives don’t appear to be particularly sensitive, or they would already realize that children are individuals whether they happen to be wombmates or not. Their “frugality” puts a damper on what are supposed to be happy occasions. It would not be “greedy” to tell them that if they can’t afford a gift for each child -regardless of how small it might be -it would cause fewer hurt feel-ings if they sent none at all for any of your children. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend’s daughter, “Heather,” came to me the other day and told me a girl at school is having sex with a 36-year-old. Abby, the girl is only 13. When I told Heather I want-ed to tell a counselor, she begged me not to because she’s new in the school and doesn’t want to be labeled a snitch. I am torn about what to do. I don’t want her mad at me, but I can’t just stand back and let this continue to happen. Heather and I are nine years apart, so I don’t really come across as a parental figure. I don’t know if I should tell her dad or not. Please help. — DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO DEAR DON’T KNOW: The girl in question is being raped. The 36-year-old is a predator. What you should do is find out the girl’s name and then let her parents know what is going on so they can possibly inform the police. If you can’t locate the parents, talk to a counselor at the school, because a counselor is ethically and legally required to report a crime like this. DEAR ABBY: I recently realized that my parents lied about their wedding date. Because of my mother’s age and health, I haven’t told her I know the truth. My father passed away several years ago, so his obituary states the date they always used. When my mother passes, do I state the true date in her obituary or perpetuate the lie? — DAUGHTER WITH A SECRET DEAR DAUGHTER: I think you should do what-ever you think your mother would want when the time comes. nless your friends read the wedding date with calculators in hand, I doubt they will notice the relation-ship between your age and the nuptials. But if anyone should be so tasteless as to say anything, just smile and say, “Yes, I was a love child.” DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Don’t just sit back; make choices and get things moving. Don’t let what others do paralyze you. Use your energy, time and money wisely. Restlessness will cause distress if you don’t take action. Don’t assume, over-react or overspend. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Keep moving. You’ll be surprised at how much you accomplish. Focus, discipline and showing off your skills and talents will help you reach your goals. Love is on the rise and romance should be planned for the evening hours. +++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Don’t push your luck. Observe and consider your options. Deception and disillusion-ment regarding a partner-ship is apparent. Protect your assets, possessions and reputation. Make alterations based on what works for you, not on what someone tries to manipu-late. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Emotions will surface regarding con-tracts and money matters. Opportunities are within reach, and you should not hesitate to make a move if it will benefit your home, family and future. Love is in the stars and romance will bring you added benefits. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Try something new or travel to an unfamiliar destination. What you learn through the experi-ences you have will help you rethink the way to move forward. New begin-nings will help you put an end to regrets or setbacks. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone with experience and wisdom will offer you advice. Check facts before you decide to make a move based on what you’ve been told. The information given may need to be updated in order for it to work in your favor. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Bad influences will affect your emotional well-being. Don’t make a move or change the way you do things based on demands that someone else is mak-ing.

By JOEDY McCREARY Associated Press DURHAM, N.C. Nobodys laughing at Dukes football program anymore. The 20th-ranked Blue Devils are playing No. 1 Florida State Saturday for an ACC championship and an Orange Bowl berth. Still, it wasnt that long ago when Duke defensive tackle Sydney Sarmiento heard somebody wondering why the perpetually putrid program even bothered to field a football team. Not the butt of every bodys joke anymore, Sarmiento said. The Blue Devils have made believers out of the Seminoles, who routed Duke 48-7 last year in Tallahassee. Just as Florida State has bought into coach (Jimbo) Fishers coaching, I think those guys have bought into their team, Seminoles safety Lamarcus Joyner said. You just see a group of guys that believe in each other, and when you have a belief you can do a lot of wonders. ... I just see a team that believes in each other and has a great coach and some smart players. Theyre on a roll. Now they have to find a way to beat a Seminoles team thats a 29-point favor ite and on track to play for the BCS championship. They also must figure out how to deal with quarter back Jameis Winston the ACCs rookie of the year, a leading Heisman Trophy candidate and the subject of an ongoing investiga tion into sexual assault allegations. Our entire season has been based on people telling us what we cant do, tight end Braxton Deaver said. Youre last in the ACC oh, thats funny, now were first in the Coastal (Division). But what looks from the outside like an out-ofnowhere rise actually has been the product of coach David Cutcliffes patient reconstruction project. Its not an accident. Its a process, Cutcliffe said. Those young men on the 2008 team, 09 team, team all took part in the development of these seniors and upperclassmen. ... Its not just a year. Its not just an event that happened this year. Picked in the preseason to finish last in the division, Duke (10-2, 6-2) has already set a school record for vic tories, captured its first division title and sewn up the first consecutive bowl berths in school history. Thats quite a turnaround for a program that went win less four times from 19962007 with two other one-win seasons while setting the standard for football futility among power-conference schools during what defen sive end Kenny Anunike called the dark years. Deaver said when he arrived in 2010, some longgone veterans from the previous regime carried an attitude of Im going to get my degree and get out of here. And according to Anunike, some of those ex-teammates didnt believe they could win games and instead went into them hoping merely to keep it close. We knew football was on the low end of the totem pole, said running back Josh Snead, a Durham native. We knew it was going to take time. Coach Cut, when he recruited me, told me, Just give me a few years and youll see the changes. Indeed, this Duke pro gram is completely differ ent from the one Cutcliffe inherited from Ted Roof. These Blue Devils were built in the weight room one of Cutcliffes first goals upon his hiring was having the players lose a combined 1,000 pounds during off season conditioning and developed through a patient redshirting process. Lone gone are those days when Duke was pressed into playing most of its freshmen before they were ready. Of the 52 players on the offensive and defensive depth charts, 34 have been redshirted at least once including each of the 10 offensive linemen, all three tight ends, and eight of the 10 along the defensive line. Only four player on the depth chart are in their first year in the program. Conversely, every offensive lineman is a redshirt sopho more or older and the starters along both lines have stayed healthy enough to start every game. Thats basically loading your back end, Anunike said. You might sacrifice a few opportunities where guys might be able to play, but (Cutcliffe is) looking at what theyll blossom into later in their redshirt junior year, redshirt senior year, and see how much more theyll benefit the program than if they got thrown right into the fire. That patience paid off in a most unlikely division title and a chance at an even bigger accomplishment this weekend in Charlotte.
