Toys for Tots has
more requests
than it does toys.
troberts@lakecityreporter. com
The Marine Corps Reserve
Toys for Tots program has
reached a standstill, as the
recruiters in Columbia and
surrounding counties are hav-
ing difficulties obtaining toys
for everyone who has applied.
"Our phones have not
stopped ringing (for people
calling to request toys)," said
Walt Russell, coordinator for
Toys for Tots. "After the
Christmas parade, it just
became unreal. This was
something we did not expect."
Last year, Toys for Tots
helped more than 1,800 chil-
dren in Columbia and sur-
rounding counties. This year,
the need seems to be much
"If we could get all the toys
we needed, we'd likely be
helping out more than
2,300 kids," Russell said.
Russell said the demand for
toys has been so high they've
had to stop accepting requests
for help.
"We've had to completely
cut off (the phones)," Russell
said. 'We don't have the toys,
but we don't turn down
Russell said the sizes of fam-
ilies requesting assistance
seems to be growing, and
there are requests for toys for
older children this year.
Russell also noted that
requests for assistance may be
higher this year because of
those displaced by a bad
hurricane season.
Toys for Tots is accepting
monetary and toy donations
through Friday. Toys will be
given out starting Saturday,
plus Monday and Tuesday.

Holiday house tour

to benefit children

All of the proceeds
will be donated to
help Happy House.
"This house is drop-dead gor-
geous," said Linda Gafford. "I
mean Martha Stewart couldn't
have done better."
Touring 7,000 square feet of
decorated space that includes
nine Christmas trees - two of
them 13-feet tall - and a Disney
room at Bill and Willene Giles'
Holiday House should leave
guests feeling merry while
benefiting children.
'This is a benefit for Happy
House, 100 percent of the pro-
ceeds go to Happy House," said
Gafford, who works at the John
Burns State Farm Agency - a
ticket outlet for the fundraiser. "It
(Happy House) does wonderful
things for the community. It helps
children that come from families
that can't afford daycare."
The money raised at the Giles
Holiday House from 5:30-8:30
p.m. on Friday, Saturday and
Sunday will go into the scholar-
ship fund for children who attend

Happy House, a United Way
Agency, that provides daycare to
260 children ranging in age from
infants to four year olds.
"I think about 70 percent of
that are subsidized care now. Last
year we gave out over $60,000 in
scholarships," said Happy House
Associate Director Janie
"It's vitally important because
in today's society, many times
both parents have to work just to
make ends meet and if they can't
find quality childcare they can't

work," Richardson said.
Giles has spent two months
decorating, and has many themes
in the house - including a china
doll tree and many village scenes
- and said although her hus-
band won't admit it, he enjoys the
decorations too.
"I just love Christmas and have
very fond memories of Christmas
when I was a child," Giles said.
Giles said she did another holi-
day house in 2002 for CARC -
Advocates for Citizen's With
Disabilities, Inc.
"I just think it's our responsibil-
ity as good citizens to give some-
thing back to the community and
what better way than through the
children," Giles said. "I love chil-
dren, they're (Happy House) just
a very good cause and a very well
run organization and I just
wanted to benefit them."
Volunteers from Happy House
will staff the Giles Holiday House

Recently, the Rotary Club of Lake
City-Downtown informed Fire Chief
Al Wilson of its plans to name a
Fireman of the Year and for a rec-

our community," said Deborah

"Don is a very good employee,
one who is always looking out for
the citizens of Columbia County,"
Chief Wilson said. "We are very
blessed to have Don with us today."

Lawsuits alleging
fraud dismissed

lawsuits have been dismissed
that accused the community

committing voter fraud during
its 2004 drive to register
lower-income and minority
"Nonpartisan voter
registration and outreach is a
key part of our daily work to
build more power for our
communities, and we will
never be intimidated by
baseless legal attacks," said
ACORN chairwoman
Tamecka Pierce on
One lawsuit claimed that
ACORN - which stands for

Organizations for Reform Now
.- committed voter fraud by
failing to turn in voter
registration forms in time for
the 2004 general election. That
case was dismissed last week
by U.S. District Judge Jose

claims by a former ACORN
employee - Mac Stuart, who
was also involved in the first
lawsuit - that he was




wrongfully fired after
threatening to disclose the
organization's alleged
wrongdoing. U.S. District

dismissed that lawsuit, also
last week.
ACORN officials said it
registered 210,000 voters in
Florida and 1.1 million
nationwide prior to the
2004 election. The
organization said that
investigations by the FBI and
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement have also turned
up no evidence that it took
part in voter fraud.

City Hall gets 'basically new' fire system installed

LINDA YOUNG/Lake City Reporter
Jay Labori of Security Safe Company
installs a new horn strobe fire alarm on
the third floor of the new Lake City City
Hall near the elevator Monday.

lyoung@lakecityreporter. corn

In time for Christmas, the Lake
City City Hall is getting shiny new
red fire alarm horn strobes.
"We're adding the horn strobes
throughout the building," said
Security Safe Company Senior
Technician Bill Howard.
The city paid $8,400 for improve-
ments and additions to the existing
alarm system in City Hall.
"Basically it's a new system," said
Lake City City Manager Joe Cone.
"We can use the existing alarms,

but there's some improvements
that have to be made."
On Wednesday morning,, Lake
City Project Manager Grayson
Cason walked past the newly-
installed fire alarm horn strobe
near the elevator on the third floor
where his office is located. The old
pull-handle alarm was still in place
on the wall.
"Now they're currently installing
this," Cason said pointing up at the
new horn strobe. "This is against
code," Cason said, as he pointed at
the old pull-handle alarm lower on
the wall. "It has to be up higher, it

has to have a light on it ... it picks
up on the smoke and everything
else, it goes off all by itself."
"Code requirements changed and
when the ownership changes then
that falls out of compliance and
.we've got to update," Cason said.
Before moving into the new city
hall building in August, the exist-
ing sprinkler system and fire alarm
systems were tested and worked
properly, city officials said.
"It was not unsafe, it just didn't
meet the current codes," Cone
"The law states that whenever

there is a change in occupancy, you
have to bring it (a building) up to
codes," Cone said.
"We took an office building and
made it a public building with a
seating capacity of 200 people. If
you fall into a new category, you
have to make upgrades," Cone
Along with replacing the old pull-
handle alarm boxes in the building
and electronic upgrades, a pro-
gramming panel by the lobby need-
ed to be upgraded and the master
panel had to be upgraded as well,
Cone said.


Teen injured in
lead pipe beating
A Columbia County High
School student was taken to
the hospital Wednesday
morning after being struck
by a lead pipe repeatedly by
another student.
The Columbia County
Sheriff's Office is not
releasing names, but did state
that both students are 14.
According to witness
statements, the suspect
approached the victim and
wanted to discuss a prior
incident. The victim,
however, didn't want to talk
and attempted to walk away
numerous times, repeatedly
being pulled back by the

After the second time, the
suspect pulled out a lead
pipe from his pocket and
struck the victim multiple
The victim was taken by
family to the hospital where
he was treated for minor
injuries and released. The
suspect was arrested and
taken to the Juvenile
Detention Center in
He was charged with
aggravated battery.
"The attack of one person on
another is not acceptable even
if the two involved are
juveniles," said Columbia
County Sheriff Bill Gootee.
"The suspect has been
charged and turned over to the
juvenile authorities, but

aggravated battery remains a
serious crime. It will not be
taken lightly."

Explosion suspect
now behind bars
The man who allegedly set
a Columbia County motel
room on fire as he was
preparing to manufacture
methamphetamine was
booked into the Columbia
County Jail Wednesday
Randal Lee Heath, 46, was
flown by Trauma-One to
Shands at the University of

County needs

more court


The Third Judicial Circuit
Court soon will have a new
judge appointed by Gov.
Jeb Bush. This judge
should be a candidate from
Columbia County with an office located
Four currently have been named
finalists for the position - Leandra G.
Johnson, Thomas E. Stone, David
Manuel Valin and William F "Lin"
Williams III. Ten people applied for the
position and, after interviews, that list
was narrowed to four.
The position is newly created
because of growth issues in population
and because of the demand placed on
the court's busy docket.
Seven counties make up the Third
Judicial Circuit and they include
Columbia, Hamilton, Dixie, Madison,
Lafayette, Suwannee and Taylor
Counties. Currently, the Third Judicial'
Circuit has three circuit judges in
Columbia County, plus one each in
Hamilton, Suwannee and Taylor
Far and away, Columbia County has
the largest population of the three, but
that is no guarantee we will receive the
appointment and that's wrong. We
should be a lock for it.
We need another strong Columbia
County presence among the Third
Judicial Circuit judges and we hope the
governor's office will move quickly and
correctly with the appointment.

Today is Thursday, Dec. 15, the 349th
day of 2005. There are 16 days left in
the year. ..

Has protecting against

terrorism gone too far?

The reaction to the
shooting death of
Rigoberto Alpizar
provides a
sobering glimpse
into America's current'',
*obsession with keeping
Io0urselves-safe from' terrorism.
Alpizar was shot by federal air
marshals after he ran off a
plane that was about to depart
from Miami to Orlando.
Initially, authorities claimed
that Alpizar had yelling that
he had a bomb as he ran
down the plane's aisle with a
backpack strapped across his
chest.'Yet the Orlando
Sentinel interviewed seven
passengers who claimed
Alpizar wasn't saying anything
at all, let alone yelling about a
bomb, while no passenger
backed the government's
Alpizar turns out to have
been mentally unstable and
altogether harmless. It's of
course possible that Alpizar
claimed he had a bomb once
he was out in the jetway, but
it's also possible that the two
air marshals who shot him
panicked, and concocted the
story about a.bomb after the
fact, to make their tragic
mistake 6f shooting a
harmless mentally ill man
seem like a justifiable use of
lethal force.
Or perhaps Alpizar was
suffering from a delusion that
there was a bomb on the
plane, and the marshals
misunderstood something he
said in the jetway. The
ongoing investigation of the
incident will no doubt produce
more details, but one thing is
already clear: the disturbing
eagerness with which the


Paul Campos

government and the media
rushed to judgment in this
matter. Within hours, White
House spokesman Scott
McClellan was proclaiming
that the shooting was justified,
despite the haziness of the
factual situation.
This was hardly surprising,
.but what was disappointing
was the markedly deferential
attitude the media took toward
the government's hasty
assertions that the air
marshals acted properly, even
after major discrepancies
began to appear between the
government's initial story and
the emerging facts. This
deference was all the more
striking given that less than
five months ago the British
police released what turned
out to be a wildly inaccurate
story about a man who they
had just shot to death on the
subway, in what later came to
look like a case of something
not too far removed from
cold-blooded murder.
Indeed, some of the media
commentary on the day after
the shooting treated the
incident not as sobering
tragedy, but as an
encouraging sign that the
system is working. One guest
on a cable news show devoted
to analyzing the stock market

went so far as to recommend
airline stocks, on the theory
that Americans would be
reassured that an apparent
security risk could so readily
elicit a lethal reaction from
those entrusted with keeping
us safe.
A comment posted on the
Orlando Sentinel's Web site
reflects a similar sentiment:
'The lesson here for all of us
is this: we have to take
responsibility for our family
members and ourselves. If
you act in an unsafe manner,
you may very well be shot. I
am OK with the terrorists
understanding this lesson."
The attitude reflected in this
comment illustrates what most
if not all of the elaborate
security rituals that have been
enacted since Sept. 11 are
really about. These rituals
don't actually make Americans
appreciably safer (who
believes that a real terrorist ,
would behave in the manner
Alpizar did?), but they make
many of us feel safer.
What all the security
protocols, and color-coded
threat levels, and air marshals
who are prepared to shoot
people who act strangely are
designed to achieve is to
create the illusion of
competence and control. The
authorities know what they're
doing - this is the essential
message. And if innocent
people end up getting spied on
or imprisoned or tortured or
shot, well that's just a cost of
what our government likes to
call freedom.

Countdown is on for the survival of the Patriot Act

The longer Congress studies the
Patriot Act, which it did not at all
when the legislation passed
immediately after Sept. 11 the more
misgivings it has, and about time.
If key provisions of the act are
not soon renewed, they will expire
at the end of the year, and it might
not be such a bad thing. Congress
could then start with a blank sheet
of paper and update federal powers
to fight terrorism without giving the
government a blank check to
A small bipartisan group of
senators wants to extend the
current law for three months while
the lawmakers further mull

revisions. Another proposal would
extend the act for a year with
Congress revisiting it after the
November elections. Whatever
their merits, the proposals reflect a
widespread uneasiness about the
law, aggravated by the Bush
administration's general refusal to
be held accountable for how it used
the act.
The existing act makes broad
incursions into constitutional
protections against unreasonable
search and seizure and those
safeguarding the right of privacy, It
frees federal agents in search of
records held by a third party from
going before a judge, establishing

probable cause and obtaining a
warrant. The act imposes an
indefinite gag order on the
organization being searched and
makes it all but impossible to
challenge the warrant in court.
And the existing act expands the
use of National Security Letters,
again a type of search warrant that
skips judicial approval. Originally,
NSLs were to be used only in
espionage cases, but the Patriot Act
basically expanded that to cover
anything related to terrorism. It was
generally assumed that NSLs were
being used sparingly, but then The
Washington Post reported that over
30,000 had been issued in the

course of just one year.
And little things keep being
quietly added to the act as it is
revised. Most recently, the ACLU
pointed to an obscure provision that
would arguably give the Secret
Service greater powers to keep
demonstrators and political /
opponents far removed from any
event involving the president
If the revamped Patriot Act is
renewed, it has one virtue. These
provisions will not be made
permanent, as the White House
wanted, but will expire again in four

Winn-Dixie's creditors want

to keep all of company's stock

Associated Press
Dixie's creditors want a bank-
ruptcy judge to give them all
the supermarket chain's
stock, which would leave its
current stockholders with
The creditors committee's
demand was contained in
court documents in which
they oppose Winn-Dixie's
third request for a 90-day
extension to file a business
plan. The creditors say the
supermarket giant, which is
struggling to keep up with
Publix and Wal-Mart, should
only be granted another
30-day extension.
"The committee believes
that any reorganization plan
should distribute all of the
common stock of the reorgan-
ized company to unsecured
creditors," the creditors
In a Chapter 11 reorganiza-
tion case, secured and unse-
cured creditors are paid
before stockholders, since
shareholders are the owners
of the company. If there is not
enough money to pay the
creditors, they are sometimes
issued common stock.
In over-the-counter trading

shares closed 90 cents per

Winn-Dixie's creditors will be arguing before a bankruptcy court
Thursday, that the supermarket chain's stockholders should be left
with nothing when it emerges from bankruptcy reorganization and
that all common stock should go to them.

4.26 percent decline. In the
past 52 weeks, Winn-Dixie
shares ranged from 6.6 cents
per share to $5.05. In 1998,
the stock was trading at
$59.38 a share.
Michael Freitag, a Winn-
Dixie spokesman, released a
statement Wednesday on the
creditors committee position
on payment of its claims said
the creditors' claim will be
addressed in court and
declined further comment.
The creditors committee
has also tried to have a

committee of shareholders,
known as the equity commit-

still before U.S. District
Bankruptcy Judge Jerry

Strategies for happy returns during the holidays

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK - You may
think that the chartreuse
sweater you've chosen for
your sister this Christmas is
just what she wants. But what
if it isn't?
Most holiday shoppers
invest a lot of time and money
in the "perfect" gift, but many
fail to give any thought to'
what happens if it doesn't fit,.
the color is wrong or it's
"You don't want your loved
ones to have to go through a
lot of hassle to exchange it or
return it," said Lisa Lee
Freeman, deputy editor of
Consumer Reports magazine,
based in Yonkers, N.Y. "So it
should be part of your shop-
ping homework this year to
make sure the stores you're
shopping have, good return

In an effort to fight fraud,
many retailers have become
stricter about enforcing
return policies. Some will give
store credit but not cash for
returned goods. A number of
big chains, including Best
Buy, Circuit City and Sears,
have begun charging
"restocking fees" of up to
15 percent when big-ticket
items such as cameras and TV
sets are returned, usually if
their boxes have been
opened. Others, including
Barnes & Noble, won't take
back DVDs, CDs and video
games that have been
Scott Krugman, spokesman
for the National Retail
Federation trade group in
Washington, D.C., said most
stores are sensitive to the
needs of consumers who are
returning goods - especially

at the holiday season -
because they want to keep
them as customers.
"Everyone is competing on
price, so one way to differ
entiate yourself is customer
service," Krugman said.
At the same time, he added,
retailers "still have to protect
themselves from return
fraud," which can involve
stolen or retagged merchan-
dise as well as bogus receipts.
It also can involve what's
known as "renting," which is
when a customer buys a dress
or suit on a Friday, wears it to
a big party on Saturday and
tries to return it Sunday.
Return policies vary widely
from retailer to retailer, so it's
important that holiday
shoppers educate themselves.
Most retailers post their
return practices near their
checkout counters. If they

don't, consumers can ask the
store's staff what the return
policies are before they buy.
Major retailers like
J.C. Penney and Wal-Mart
post their return policies on
their Web sites, including the
number of days after an item
is purchased that it will be
taken back.
Returning goods purchased
online or can trigger other
issues. Kriugman noted. Who
pays for shipping the return?,.
Can returns or exchanges be
made at a bricks-and-mortar
site? Are there deadlines?
Freeman of Consumer
Reports noted that it's harder
to return things without a
receipt. So she suggests buy-
ers ask merchants for gift
receipts to enclose with their
presents. Purchasers also
should keep their own
receipts as backup, she added.

90-day extensions in which
they have the exclusive right
to submit a reorganization
plan. It is seeking a third
90-day extension, giving it
until March 20 to file a plan
and until May 22 to secure
approvals of the plan.
Winn-Dixie's President and
CEO Peter Lynch has said he
wants the company to emerge
from bankruptcy by June.
The creditors committee
claims a 30 days is enough
and said Winn-Dixie should
be able to submit its
reorganization plan by Jan. 19.
"A 30-day extension will
keep all the parties' efforts
firmly focused on the goal;
namely the debtors' (Winn-
Dixie) timely emergence
from bankruptcy sooner
rather than later, which is in
the best interest of all parties
involved in the case."
Wachovia Bank, which has
loaned Winn-Dixie
$800 million, filed a motion
Wednesday in support of
Winn-Dixie's request for a
90-day extension. A 30-day
extension "is not equitable,
practical or realistic," its filing
Freitag said Winn-Dixie
believes 30 days isn't enough
time for the company to finish
its plan.
A hearing on the extension
is scheduled for Thursday.

Parents sue
company for wreak
The parents of two young
women killed in a head-on col-
lision on Florida's Turnpike
are suing Cooper Tire &
Rubber Company, alleging the
company's faulty tire caused a
Thanksgiving 2004 wreck that
left six dead.
The lawsuit, filed
Wednesday in Palm Beach
County Circuit Court, seeks
more than $15,000 in the
wrongful deaths of Michelle
Seville, 23, and Marsha Seville,
Attorney Lance Ivey,
representing Pauline and
Michael Seville, said the
accident was caused by a bad
Cooper Trendsetter SE tire,
which blew out because it
wasn't made with enough
"When the heat builds up,
molecules in the rubber start
breaking down, and you start
getting internal tread
separation," Ivey said. "It just
peels off similar to a banana
peeling off."
Cooper officials did not
immediately return a
telephone call Wednesday
seeking comment.
The Seville girls and
23-year-old Eustacia Callendar,
of Miami, were returning to
Tallahassee from a.
Thanksgiving trip to Wesi
Palm Beach when their Toyota
Corolla lost control, crossed a
median and collided head-on
with a Honda sedan.
Couey molested
family member
TAMPA - A man charged
with sexually assaulting and
killing 9-year-old Jessica
Lunsford told police in 1991
that he molested a young
family member, according to
John Evander Couey said
this after he was arrested for
exposing himself to a
5-year-old neighbor in
Kissimmee.according to
material released Tuesday.
Couey spent less than five
years in prison after pleading
guilty to attempting a lewd
act upon a child.
"Couey admitted this was
not the first child he had ever
touched, however this is the
first time he was caught," the
report states.
Also included is a letter
Couey wrote to Judge Belvin
Parry that said he "took
Jesus as my personal savior"
and vowed to reform.
"I know what I done was
wrong and I know I will have
to pay for it but I will be
doing it with Jesus in my life
and I will let the light shine in
me," he wrote.
Investigators say Couey,
47, abducted Jessica on Feb.
23, carried her 150 yards to a
mobile home he shared with
the other adults, raped her
and then buried her alive in
the yard.
Suspect indicted
in immigrant killings
TIFTON, Ga - A fifth
person has been indicted in a
string of bloody home
invasions in south Georgia
that left six Mexican
immigrant workers dead.
A grand jury indicted
Emma Jean Powell, 33, of
Moultrie, this week on six
counts of murder, 13 counts
of felony murder, four counts
of aggravated assault, three
counts of armed robbery, six
counts of burglary and two
counts of possession of a
firearm during the
commission of a crime.
The charges against
Powell stem from the
Sept. 30 attacks with guns
and baseball bats at three
mobile home parks in Tifton

and Tift County, said Tift
sheriff's spokesman David
District Attorney Paul
Bowden declined Wednesday
to comment on Powell's
alleged role in the killings.

Lawyers ask court to set aside murder convictions
By LARRY O'DELL marshal now says he heard a N.C., part of the security he kept quiet for more than The MacDonald case was

Associated Press
Lawyers for former Green
Beret doctor Jeffrey
MacDonald told a federal
appeals court that his convic-
tions in the 1970 murders of
his pregnant wife and two
daughters should be thrown
out after a new witness
A former deputy U.S.

defense witness tell a prose-
cutor she was in the
MacDonald home in Fort
Bragg, N.C., the night of the
murders, according to a
motion filed with the 4th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals. The
motion seeks the appeals
court's permission to present
the new evidence to the U.S.
District Court in Raleigh.
Jimmy B. Britt of Apex,

detail for MacDonald's
1979 trial, said he heard pros-
ecutor James Blackburn tell
the witness, Helena
Stoeckley, he would indict her
for murder if she told the
same story on the witness
stand. Stoeckley later testified
she could not remember
where she was the night of
the slaying.
Britt said in an affidavit that

25 years out of a sense of duty

the secret eventually became
too much to bear.
"I am currently 67 years of

nessed, as I decided I could
not shoulder the burden any
longer," Britt said in the

His lawyers said in their
motion that the newly discov-
ered evidence "consists of

ernment misconduct of the
most disturbing sort, actions
that amount to a clear
constitutional violation."

Grade weight issue

gets temporary fix

tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
The Columbia County
School Board's decision to
weigh dual enrollment classes
the same as honors classes
will have an impact on
student's grades.
During the county board of
education meeting on
Tuesday, a majority of school
board members voted in favor
of allowing dual enrollment
classes to carry the same
weight of honors classes.
Local schools use the weight-
ed grades to help determine
graduation seating.
According L.C. Bradley,
assistant for instruction,
Tuesday night's decision
bought the local school board
in compliance with statutes
regarding weighted courses.
The state statute became law
in 2000.
Though the law is five years
old, the school district was
only recently questioned
about the local rule.
'"Our interpretation was
completely different and we
hadn't been called on that
interpretation until now,"
Bradley said.

Bradley said he has
received more than 20 calls
from parents and students
regarding dual enrollment,
honors and advanced place-
ment courses and the weight
that is given to each of the
He said it is not common
for local residents to call
regarding school board policy
for courses.
'This is important because
students and parents are very
focused about where they sit
during graduation," he said.
"It's a friendly, yet inspiring
competition. To do this you
have to take those accelerated
He said school district offi-
cials will work on the issue
until they get some specific
interpretations from
"I've spoken with the princi-
pal and administrators to
make sure that we are all on
the same page as we move
forward with this policy," he
said. "We've been informed by
Tallahassee that they are

Orange juice with extra

fiber is part of drink trend

Associated Press
ORLANDO - Tropicana
Products Inc. said Wednesday
it is introducing another
specialized orange juice, this
one aimed at baby boomers
who want more fiber.
'Tropicana Pure Premium
Essentials with Fiber" joins
the Pepsico-owned brand's
niche products aimed at
consumers worried about calo-
ries, cardiovascular health and
their immune system. It's all
part of .a larger trend among
beverage companies to deve'l-
qp health-oriented products.
"It's happening across the
board. You're seeing a lot of
innovation in all beverage cate-
gories today and a lot of it is
around health and wellness,"
said Gary Hemphill,
managing director of
Beverage Marketing Corp., an

industry research firm in New
Tropicana will begin ship-
ping its fiber-enhanced juice
this week, and it should be on
grocery shelves next month.
The juicemaker, which has
about a 40 percent share of the
domestic orange juice market
and buys almost a third of
Florida's oranges, already has
product lines with half the
calories of regular orange
juice, juice with antioxidants to
promote a healthy immune
system and sodium-free juice
with heart-healthy nutrients
such as potassium and folate.
"Innovation is absolutely
critical to continue growth for
our business and for the cate-
gory," said Rick Gomez,
Tropicana's vice president of
marketing. "We expect it to be

Miranda was a senior

"It feels great," Miranda
said of winning the awards. "I
really like it. It's really fun to
be able to get awards for
things that don't really get
recognized that much, so I
like it."

Miranda was selected as a
state finalist and participated
in the Pre-Teen Florida

program which took place
July 22-24 in Tampa.
"I'm very proud of
Miranda," said Keith
Hatcher, Fort White High
School principal. "I've seen
Miranda grow up and I've
known her parents for an
awful long time. She's a very
talented young lady, so I'm
extremely proud of her."

will definitely be winning the
title, but if I don't win, the
most memorable thing will be
meeting other friends and
getting the awards and stuff,"
Miranda said.
The Pre-Teen contest takes
place every summer, as part
of a state competition where
participants can qualify for
the national competition.
Miranda became a

Pre-Teen contestant after
being invited to participate in
the event when she was in
second grade.
"If you wanted to do it, you
just fill out the application and
sent it in and they picked the
best ones out of the applica-
tions," she said. "If you get to
go once, you get a spot every
year until you age-out at
12 years old."

FPL seeks to sell bonds to recover hurricane costs

Associated Press
Power & Light wants to sell
bonds to recover much of the
cost of responding to the
hurricanes of the last two years
and to rebuild a reserve for
future hurricanes. If approved
by regulators, such a move
would spread out the cost to
customers over a decade or so,
rather than hitting them with a
bigsurcharge all at once.
FPL customers are already
paying a surcharge of $1.68 a
month to help the company
recover what it spent respond-.
ing to three of the hurricanes
'that hit Florida in 2004, a'
charge customers are on the
hook for through January

But then the company had
to respond this year to more
hurricanes, including Katrina,
which hit the area south of
Miami, and Wilma, which
caused serious, widespread
outages throughout South
The damage from this year
is being estimated at $800 mil-
lion to $900 million, FPL
spokesman Mayco Villafana
said Wednesday. Ordinarily
the company would ask the
Public Service Commission to
be able to pass at least some
of that cost on directly to
customers in lump
But lawmakers earlier this
year passed a bill that allows

utilities to cover storm
damage and restore depleted
reserves by selling bonds
backed by the surcharges.
Villafana said FPL will ask
the PSC next month to be able
to do that, selling bonds to
cover the $800 million or so
the company spent this year
plus nearly $300 million to
cover damage from 2004 that
hasn't already been made up
by the current surcharge. The
company also wants to bond
another $400 million to
$450 million to rebuild its
depleted storm reserve.
The end result for cus-
tomers would b,- a surcharge
about what they're paying
now - roughly $1.60 a month
or so - for 10 or 11 years,
Villafana said.

"We understand what the
customer has been going
through," Villafana said.
"Essentially, what we wanted
to do was see how we can
have an impact on that
(outstanding cost) and main-
tain the cost relatively low for
the customer," Villafana said.
Normally, bonds are sold
for longer periods - often
30 years. But Villafana said
the company didn't want to
stretch out the charges that
'Twenty, 30 years, may be
too long to pay for an event
that .:ccurrd in. 2004, 2005,"
he said.
"All of this of course has to
be discussed with the PSC,"
Villafana said.

Lake City CAP unit

helos in food drive

After collecting 1,540 pounds of canned and dried foods, the Lake City Civil Air Patrol gathered the
donations and posed in front of the Florida Wing CAP aircraft.

From staff reports
The Lake City Civil Air
Patrol squadron teamed up
with the Suwannee Valley
Food Bank in a holiday food
drive. The purpose of this
effort is to allow the Food
Bank to help those less
fortunate in our community.
On Dec. 3, CAP cadets
went door-to-door in a num-
ber of neighborhoods pass-
ing out flyers and asking for
assistance. The plan was to
go back to those

neighborhoods a week later
and collect the food.
The following week on
Dec. 10, cadets went back to
those neighborhoods, as
well as some new ones. By
day's end, the cadets had col-
lected 1,540 pounds of
canned goods and dry
The same day, the cadets
had also done some flying.
When the flying and food
collections were finished, all
the cadets piled the food in

front of the Florida Wing
CAP aircraft for a photo.
The Lake City Civil Air
Patrol squadron and the
Suwannee County Food
Bank said the citizens of
Lake City and Columbia
County were generous with
their giving.

drive and still wish to make a
food donation, visit the

County considers partnership for stormwater issues


Columbia County officials
are working on the possibility
of addressing some of the
county's stormwater issues
through a partnership.
County commissioners have
scheduled a special meeting
for 6 p.m. today at the
Columbia County School
Board Administrative Complex
Auditorium, 372 W. Duval St.,
to discuss a possible partner-
ship with the Suwannee River
Water Management District in
forming a cooperative
stormwater agreement.
"The meeting is to consider

an interlocal agreement
between Columbia County and
the Suwannee River Water
Management District," said
county manager Dale
Williams. "This interlocal
(agreement) would provide
funding for stormwater proj-
ects and the amount of funding
is $2 million a year for a five-
year period - for $10 million
over a five-year-period."
Williams said county offi-
cials and staff have been work-
ing on making the agreement a
reality for at least two months
or longer.
The agreement would allow
the county, along with the
water management district's

staff, to work on stormwater
mitigation, retention, flow and
other stormwater issues that
may arise.
'"The Suwannee River Water
Management District's inter-
local (agreement) would allow.
the county to have a broad
base of projects we could pick
from," Williams said.
"Obviously, we want to concen-
trate on an area where we
know we have a specific

Jerry Scarborough,
Suwannee River Water
Management District execu-
tive director, as well as other
staff members from the agency
are expected to attend the
Since the meeting has been
designated as a special meet-
ing and not a county

commissioner's workshop, offi-
cials can adopt measures
during the session.
"We do expect the board to
take action in the meeting,"
Williams said.
Following the special meet-
ing, county officials are sched-
uled to have the regularly-
scheduled meeting, which is
slated to begin at 7 p.m.
During the regular meeting,
county officials are scheduled
to discuss amending a county
ordinance related to flow
The current county ordi-
nance requires that certain

waste generated in the county
be disposed of in the county.
However, county officials are
considering amending the
ordinance, particularly for
septic tank waste.
Mark Lander, Columbia
County Environmental Health
Department Director, . is
expected to be present and talk
about the possibilities of dis-
posing of that particular waste.
'We want to remove any lim-
itations for disposal in terms of
locations, so septic tank pump-
ing companies will have the
freedom to shop for the best
disposal rate," Williams said.

President takes


for intel failures

Associated Press
President Bush said
Wednesday the responsibili-
ty for invading Iraq based in
part on faulty weapons intel-
ligence rested solely with
him, taking on the issue in
his most direct and personal
terms in the 1,000-plus days
since the war's first shots.
"It is true that much of the
intelligence turned out to be
wrong," Bush said. "As pres-
ident, I'm responsible for the
decision to go into Iraq."
The president's mea culpa
was accompanied by a
robust defense of the
divisive war.
"Saddam was a threat -
and the American people
and the world is better off
because he is no longer in
power," Bush declared, as
he has before.
Democrats were not
moved by Bush's speech,
the last of four designed to
boost his credibility on the
war and the public's backing
for it.
'There was no reason for
America to go to war when

we did, the way we did, and
for the false reasons we
were given," said Sen.
Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.
Bush offered few qualms
about the failure to find any
weapons of mass destruc-
tion in Iraq. He said foreign
intelligence agencies -
including several for govern-
ments who didn't back his
decision to invade - also
believed before the war that
Saddam Hussein possessed
them. And he said his
administration has begun
making changes to the U.S.
intelligence apparatus to
head off future errors.
The president also con-
tended the Iraqi president
had intended to restart
weapons programs.
As in the past, Bush
acknowledged no regrets
about launching the war
despite the problems with
his initial justification. He
revisited a long list of other
previously cited. reasons,
including Iraqi violations of a
no-fly zone in its airspace,
Saddam's invasion of Kuwait
a decade earlier and Iraq's
defiance of United Nations

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip-
Israeli missiles fired from the
air ripped apart two cars in
the Gaza Strip on Wednesday,
killing four Palestinian mili-
tants and wounding five other
people, including an Islamic
Jihad spokesman, the military
and Palestinians said.
The strikes came as the
Palestinians' ruling Fatah
party slid deeper into disarray
before the Jan. 25 parliamen-
tary vote, with a shootout
between rival factions in Gaza
and a top vote-getter threaten-
ing to split the movement as a
midnight deadline for
registering candidates loomed.
In marked contrast to
Fatah's chaos, the Islamic
militant group Hamas
unveiled its slate of parlia-
mentary candidates, naming

a well-known pragmatist to
head the list in an apparent
effort to woo mainstream
Wednesday's airstrike in
eastern Gaza City was Israel's
third since it renewed the
practice of targeting militants
following a deadly suicide
bombing in Israel on Dec. 5.
Altogether, seven militants
have been killed.
The Israeli missile set off
explosives in the car, blasting
it to pieces, the military said.
Army footage filmed by a
drone aircraft showed a huge
column of black smoke
pouring from the stricken
Israel said the militants,
from the Popular Resistance
Committees, were on their way
to attack the Karni cargo cross-
ing, a vital lifeline for
Palestinian imports and

A Popular Resistance
spokesman who goes by the
name of Abu Saed vowed
"The blood shed by the
Zionists will not be shed in
vain," he said. "We will retali-
ate and send them the mes-
sage that Palestinian sacrifice
does not come cheap."
The group was behind sev-
eral deadly attacks against
Israelis in Gaza, and some
link it with an October
2003 attack in which three
U.S. Marine guards were
killed in the bombing of a
U.S. Embassy convoy in Gaza.
The second strike came
after nightfall. Khader Habib,
an Islamic Jihad spokesman,
was slightly wounded when
an Israeli missile was fired at
his car, group Jihad official
Omar Shallah said, pledging
to continue the struggle
against Israel.

Each year, sports
provide the
rare opportuni-
ty not only for
coaches to thank their play-
ers for the season that just
ended, but for players to
reciprocate to the coaches
for their contributions.
They also provide the
opportunity to recognize
those who are largely for-
gotten, the people who
work behind the scenes to
provide all of the necessary
components for the players
and coaches to succeed -
from raising enough money
to buy jerseys and uni-
forms to providing
pregame meals for players.
These people are the

thi_,-i who are firmly
behind the football team
call themselves the
Quarterback Club.
,And at the Fort White
football banquet on
Saturday, these parents and
boosters who arranged
dinners for players - and
were actually responsible
for putting together the
banquet itself - were
properly thanked for their
often overlooked
contributions to the team.
Quarterback Club
President Scott Gilmer
spent the evening thanking
his fellow parents and
boosters for all they had
done to help make the
season a success, noting
they often sacrificed their
time and money to help
make the players and
coaches' lives a little easier
during the hectic year.
Their efforts were not
lost on the coaches and
Athletic Director John
Wilson either, who went out
of their way to praise the
boosters for their help as
they do after every season.
Kathy Harrell received a
plaque for what Gilmer
called her "hard work and
dedication" during the
season. Amanda
Humphries was recognized
for organizing meals for the
junior varsity players, and
all of the members of the
Quarterback Club were
asked to stand in front of
the gathered audience to
receive some well-deserved

Fort White coaches and
players said the results of

busy offseason was to bolster
an already tough starting rota-
tion by agreeing to acquire
right-hander Javier Vazquez
from Arizona for right-hander
Orlando Hernandez, reliever
Luis Vizcaino and minor
league outfielder Chris

Fort White High junior weighlifter Lisa Werzel clean-and-jerks
55 pounds at a recent meet.

Lady Tigers edge Baker County

CHS wins five
weight classes in
48-41 home victory.
Columbia High won five
weight classes and Bake
County High won five weight
classes, but at the end of the
day the Lady Tigers dominat-
ed the higher divisions, and
that resulted in a narrow 48-41
win against the Lady Wildcats
on Wednesday.
"We're excited we won of
course but the maint thing is
we're just looking. at -getting,
ourselves better," Coach
Mitch Shoup said.
Oja Rollins had a personal
best in the bench press at
200 pounds, and she won the
Unlimited weight class with a
340 total.
Jolene Hill fell just short of
her personal best with a
125-130-255 total, but she still
won the 183-pound weight class.
"Last meet I got a 260, so I
went down," Hill said.
Kori Drake and Michelle
Maxson did set personal bests
in winning the 154- and
139-pound weight classes,
Drake had a 100-140-240
total to win her class.
"I felt good, if I would have
gotten a 105 on the bench I
would have gotten a 245 total
and that would have been my
personal best," Drake said. "I
was disappointed I didn't get
105, but I was happy I got the
win." Drake wants to add anoth-
er 10-15 pounds on both her
bench and the clean-and-jerk by
the end of the season to achieve
her goal of reaching states.
Maxson won the 139s with
a 110-120-230 total.
"It's my best," she said. "I'm

still going to try and get better
next time."
Tiffany Watson won the
169s with a 100-125-225 total.
Ashley Stalnaker tied for first
in the 110s with a 90-85-175
total, but she lost because she

weighed more than her Baker
County opponent.
Jamie Williams set a per-
sonal best with a 100 in the
clean-and-jerk on her last
attempt to earn three crucial
points for Columbia by

placing second.
Other second-place finishes
were Marvisha Smith (183),
Chelsea Blair (169), Jessica
Bullock (139), Alisa Ring
(Unlimited) and Manisha
Carter (199).

Lindsey Rich (154) and
Amanda Frampton (129)
placed third.
Columbia (3-0) is off until
Jan. 6, when the Lady Tigers
host Suwannee High at
4:15 p.m.

The deal is contingent on the
players passing physical,
which were in the process of
being scheduled, and it must be
approved by commissioner Bud
Selig because Arizona is send-
ing the White Sox cash to help
pay part of Vazquez's salary.
The amount of cash wasn't
immediately known, but only 25
percent of it will be paid in 2006.
The agreement was con-
firmed Wednesday by a base-
ball official who spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because the
trade had not been finalized.
It would be the fourth major
offseason move by the White
Sox since Chicago won its first
World Series since 1917.
The White Sox re-signed
first baseman Paul Konerko,
traded center fielder Aaron

Rowand to the Phillies for DH
Jim Thome and acquired utili-
ty player Rob Mackowiak
from the Pirates for reliever
Damaso Marte. Chicago also
cut ties with two-time MVP
Frank Thomas and DH Carl
Everett by not offering them
salary arbitration.
Williams was not available
to comment on the trade
Wednesday. But during a con-
ference call Tuesday, he
expressed his philosophy on
changing the face of a
championship team.
"We're not looking to break
up anything, we're looking to
add to the equation," he said.
"We're looking to get better
and to get better for a longer
period of time. We just have to

The trade would give Arizona
a starter to replace Vazquez,
provide help in what was a
shaky bullpen and give the team
a young option in center field,
where Shawn Green played out
of position last season.
Vazquez filed a formal trade
demand Nov. 10, the right of
veteran players dealt during
multiyear contracts. Arizona
had until March 15 to trade
him or risk having Vazquez
become a free agent.
He is owed $11.5 million next
year and $12.5 million in 2007.
Vazquez was obtained by
the New York Yankees from
Montreal after the 2003 sea-
son and was an All-Star in his
first season with New York,
going 14-9 with a 4.75 ERA.

But he won just one of his last

was traded to Arizona last
January as part of the deal that

ATVs banned in Alapaha riverbed

From staff reports

LIVE OAK - Law enforce-
ment officers soon will begin
issuing citations to persons who
operate ATVs and other vehi-
cles in the Alapaha riverbed and
on its banks, in violation of
Suwannee River Water
Management District rules.
The District will post warning
signs at locations known to be
entrance points for riders,
including near the bridge at
State Road 6 and U.S. 41 in
Hamilton County. Until signs are
posted, officers will explain the
rule to violators, issue warnings
and ask riders to leave the area.
The rule banning motor-
ized vehicles was adopted by
the District governing board
in late 2004 and amended ear-
lier this year following publi-
cation of a Department of
Environmental Protection
report describing ecological
damage associated with the
use of vehicles in the fry
riverbed and on its banks.
Damage cited in the report
includes destruction of vege-
tation, significant bank ero-
sion, and smothering of habi-
tats important for fish and
wildlife. The report recom-
mended that motorized vehi-
cles be kept out of the entire
river system, including the
floodplain, river banks and
riverbed to prevent further
environmental damage.
The rule has been incorporat-
ed into Chapter 40B-4.3040,
Florida Administrative Code,
and states: "It is prohibited for
any person to operate any
motorized vehicle within a work
of the (water management) dis-
trict that includes the channel of
a stream as defined by the nor-
mally recognized bank. Law
enforcement officers, during

duties, are exempt from this
Chapter 373 of the Florida
Statutes authorizes the
District to make such rules,
and section 613 states that a
violation of the rule is a

second-degree misdemeanor,
punishable by a fine of up to
$500 or up to 60 days in jail.
"District lands are open for
recreational opportunities
such as hiking, biking and
fishing, and we even allow lim-
ited ATV use at Mallory

Swamp during non-hunting
season," said Jon Dinges,
District director of resource
management. "But our high-.
est priority is the protection of
our natural resources and in
most cases, ATV use is not
compatible with that goal."

Create '

a Priceless
Holiday Gift

lNIS) - \\hat parent or
grandparent hasn't labored
lovingly over their holiday
shopping list, deciding ,on the
per fect gift for family inmem--
bers and friends? You lander
the aisles ,f the toy or cloth-
ing store, but nothirig s-ems
quite right. Finding the right
presents for loved ones -
especially babies and children
- can be challenging.
Trends and interests often
change frequently, but you
can give a gift that will last
throughout the years and be a
token of your love. The holi-
day season is about creating
and sharing memories, and an
easy way to do so is through a
journal or scrapbook. By piec-
ing together your thoughts,
experiences, photographs and
words of wisdom, you can cre-
ate a keepsake that's perfect
to share with youngsters who
have only begun to create
their own memories. Here are
some ways to get this project
* Consider a theme to help
you focus your thoughts. If'
the youngster is a budding
athlete, share stories of your
sports experiences. Include

trading cards or news clips
from your youth and photos of
you in uniform. Provide point-
ers on ho%% he can improve
his game.
* ShaIre lamnily secrets.
Create a cookbook with
favorite foods that you can
make together. Or include
tried-and-true instructions on
how to build a treehouse or
dollhouse. These insider tips
can be saved and shared with
future generations.
* Create a photo collage of
family, baby and childhood
pictures. You can laugh over
the images as the child grows
older and mention how cloth-
ing styles have come and
gone. Children often love to
look at older photos, especial-
ly those of close relatives.
Many neighborhood photo
centers can duplicate old
prints or touch-up imperfec-
tions inexpensively.

can help you catalog, your
memories or jump-start new
ideas. Generation to

Holiday Luck

r e holidays are
steeped in many tra-
ditions. Some people
kiss beneath mistletoe, others
light candles in honor of
the rewards of faithE,.
and others believe
in the fruits of .----

have you ever - -
heard about spi- :
ders and the holi-
days being relat- -.. '.
ed? According to:
Ukrainian folklore,
there once was a poor woman
who could not afford
Christmas decorations for her
family. One Christmas morn-
ing, she awoke to find her


children's tree trimmed with
spider webs. When the morn-
ing sun shone on them, the
webs turned silver and gold.
Today, an artificial
.-. spider and web
- often adorn a
. Uk r a n i a n
Christmas tree.
---- The spider and
web are seen as
S! a symbol of holi-
day luck.

follow this tradition in
your own home, perhaps you
could rely on a couple of
Halloween decorations for
this very purpose! HL04C998

10 Ways to Reduce

Holiday Stress

(MS) - The ..
holidays are full of .
annual events -
parties, gifts, dec-
orating and more.
Sure, it's all in
good fun, but
sometimes you .
spend so much /
time doing those
activities that you ',
have no time left
for yourself. Here '
are some easy
ways to get back
some sanity dur- Take the str
ing the holidays.
1. Shop via
phone or catalog
so you don't have to stand in
line at the store. Many mer-
chants offer free shipping.
2. Make your home festive
by inviting friends or family
over for a decorating party.
That way, it can all be done in
one day, and you can visit with
people at the same time.
3. Instead of baking 20 dif-
ferent types of holiday cook-
ies, ask each family member
for his or her favorite kind and
make those.
4. Sign and address holiday
cards in advance. Make your
life even easier by using a
computer database to print
addresses on envelopes. You
can add a personal note when
you are ready to mail them.
5. Instead of hosting one

ess out

gathering of your childhood
friends, another of your work
friends and yet another of
your husband's friends, com-
bine groups. While it will be a
larger gathering, you'll only
have to entertain once. And
don't feel the need to whip up
a three- course homemade
feast. Make it easy on yourself
by catering the party or mak-
ing it a potluck.
6. Don't spend hours clean-
ing your house from head to
toe. Hire a cleaning person.
It's an expense that's well
worth it!
7. Set a limit on the number
of holiday invitations you
accept. If you feel badly about
declining, offer to help the
hosts set up before or clean up

.. after.
8. It's okay to
take a year off
from flying to
visit relatives
- and family. And
it's also okay to
pass on sending
out holiday
cards this year.
9. Keep the
focus on the
S people at the
/ event, not what
" . kind of food you
ings simple, serve. It's okay
S p to serve one
kind of cookie,
one plate of
cheese and crackers, and
basic beverages. As long as
your guests have something
to eat and drink, they'll be
10. If someone offers to
bring food to your holiday
party, don't be a martyr. Say
yes! Make a short list of items
that are nonperishable and
portable (like bottled soda or
rolls) and assign a guest to
bring them when asked.
Keep the spirit of the sea-
son in mind at all times. The
holidays aren't a race to see
who buys their presents first
or who makes the best cook-
ies. Do the best you can, and
enjoy! TF04C917

Natural Diamonds

movie star, mom and fashion-
ista - is inarguably a trend-
setter. That's why when
Kidman wore a stunning, 195-
carat natural green rough dia-

took notice.
The stunning necklace
truly showcases Mother
Nature's true beauty as the
stones are left in their original
rough state before they are
polished and set. Natural dia-
monds have so many inherent
qualities that make them not
only fashionable but also
extremely desirable. Each nat-
ural diamond is different, with
tiny inclusions or birthmarks
that are invisible to the naked
eye but unique to each stone.
The process of turning these
miracles of nature into jewelry
is a difficult process, requir-
ing the handiwork of skilled
artisans. Learn just how dia-
monds have risen to stardom.
One of nature's greatest
miracles, the story of the daz-

billion years ago when dia-
monds formed as pure crys-

Mining and processing
these Kimberlite deposits

and sophisticated, advanced

Diamonds are next sorted
and valued into over 16,000
categories, based on shape,
quality, color and size. Then,
to reveal their true beauty and
brilliance, the diamonds are
cut and polished. The skill of
diamond cutting has been
passed down from generation
to generation by highly skilled
artisans. It is a painstaking
process that those with such

Now, the most glamorous
part of a diamond's journey
begins. It's time for the dia-

elry design. Like diamond cut-
ting, the art of jewelry design

designers offer intricate detail
and styling that appeals to all
generations. Diamond jewelry
is, as always, a cherished gift.

Countdown to New Year's Eve

Bring the party to you by host-
ing your own New Year's Eve

Each year, couples and fam-
ilies begin the annual tradi-
tion of making plans for New
Year's Eve, often much before
the start of the holiday sea-
son. Each person asks anoth-
er and another, in search of
something to do.. The search
usually comes up fruitless,
until about December 30th,
when people are left scram-
bling for dinner reservations
or a party to attend.
This year, bring the party to
you by hosting a New Year's
Eve bash at your home. It's
easy, it's fun and it's a built-in
New Year's Eve plan! Follow

these tips and you'll ring in
the New Year with a bang!
Invites should include the
basics of time, place and
directions. Also, indicate the
attire. If it's going to be a casu-
al jeans and T-shirt event or a
more formal evening gown
and tuxedo type of evening,
that's something guests need
to know. Get creative with
your invites. Take a card and
attach party horns. Cut an
invitation in the shape of a
champagne flute or party hat.
Toss some confetti into the

envelope for a festive flair.
Stock up on finger foods
like chips and dip in advance.
Arrange all food on platters,
cover with foil and place in the
refrigerator until guests
arrive. If you are serving din-
ner, do some planning.
Remember, everyone else has
the same idea! For sandwich-
es or salads from the local
deli, order in advance or see if
they offer New Year's Eve
platters that often include side
dishes or drinks. If you are
bringing in take-out like

Chinese food or pizza, be sure
to allow for enough pick up or
delivery time.
For drinks, offer a mix of
alcoholic beverages like beer,
wine and of course cham-
pagne, and nonalcoholic
drinks such as water and
soda. Brew up a pot of coffee
and hot water for tea for
guests who need an extra
dose of caffeine.
Everyone wants to see the
ball drop in Times Square.
Turn on all the TVs in your
house for' guests who are

milling about. Consider bor-
rowing a large TV if you don't
have one so guests in the
main area can all take in the
Occupy guests until the
countdown. You can have
everyone make resolutions
and bury them in a time cap-
sule. If kids are present, you
can have them make noise-
makers by placing beans, rice
or beads in plastic drink bot-
Happy New Year!

Add 'Taste' to Holiday Giving

(MS) - Sweet nothings
this season will come in many
homemade and store-bought
varieties. From pastries and
pies to cakes and cookies, hol-
*iday giving for neighbors, col-
leagues and friends often con-
sists of ethereal edibles.
Gwen Willhite, founder of
Cookies by Design@, the
originator of the hand-deco-
rated Cookie Bouquet, says
food gifts shouldn't be limited
to a plate of cookies or pan of
brownies. Gwen's mission is
to personalize her treats with
finishing touches that add
sparkle and emotion. She
offers the following guide-
lines for those who want to do
the same.
1. "Eat"-ertain: Instead of
insisting on picture-perfect
cookies, involve your children
in the decorating process.
Make cookies at home, or buy


ready-to-decorate ones from
companies like Cookies by
Design in various shapes, and
let your children find their
inner artist. The time spent
together is priceless, as will
be the resulting art. You can
always augment their cre-
ations with your own or with
professionally decorated holi-
day selections.
2. Give for the recipient:
Shoppers often select designs
based on their own prefer-
ences without considering
who -is getting the gift.
Account for the particulars of
your recipient - gender, reli-
gious affiliation,, hobbies,
allergies, age and occupation
- to determine the most
appropriate food gift. While

might enjoy an arrangement

.packets more than a themed
holiday selection.
3. Find the right level:
Sometimes, a food gift is not
enough, but may perfectly
complement another gift. For
example, an individually deco-
rated cookie makes a perfect
gift topper and adds to the
overall value of the gift. Or, if
paper greeting cards aren't
quite enough, consider giving
cookies with messages on
them instead.
4. Host with the most: For
the host or hostess, planning
a party, decking the halls and
getting through the gift list
can be overwhelming.
Consider using food as deco-
rations to cut preparation time
in half. Cookie bouquets
(homemade or from Cookies
by Design) are ideal for cen-

terpieces, and individual
cookies can be used as orna-
ments or even place cards.
Other table decorations could
include a cheesecake on a
cake stand with some fruit,
and there's nothing better
than a gingerbread house to
5. Shop for ideas: Each
year, new gift ideas are abun-
dant. Whether you buy the lat-
est and greatest or let them
inspire you to create your
own, it's good to know what's
out there.
For ideas on creative con-
fections, or to share your own
with others, visit www.cook- Whether
you're having caricatures of
friends and family drawn on
cookies in icing, or staging
decorating parties for your
daughter's class at school, all
ideas are welcome.

Newlyweds Can Survive the Holidays

You've recently taken the
plunge and decided that mar-
ried life is for you. By now you
may have grown accustomed
to each other's idiosyncrasies
(he leaves a trail of dirty
clothes throughout the house;
she over-plans and over-ana-
lyzes), but are you ready to
take on the extended family?
Sure, you may have attend-
ed your share of family gath-
erings as a couple and
learned a little about what
makes your in-laws tick. But
often when couples are in the
"dating stage," members of
the family put on a show that
masks their unpleasantries or
quirks. Now that you're "part
of the family," you may get a
lesson in reality, especially
during this hectic holiday sea-
son when high jinks seem to
be in full force.

Every family has holiday
traditions. Maybe yours
included a morning spent
opening gifts by the tree
Christmas morning and then
a holiday feast. Your spouse
may have grown up in a house
where a dinner out at a restau-
rant'was the norm. But now
that you're a couple with two
distinct families vying for
your attention, it can be over-
whelming deciding how and
where to spend your holidays.
Here are some scenarios to
help .balance your time
between both families:
* Divide and conquer -
Spend equal time with both
sides of the family. Perhaps
your family gets an early start
to the festivities and your
spouse's side starts later on.
Visit your side first and then
make the trip to the other
side. If there is a great dis-
tance between the two loca-
tions, consider spending one
year with your family and
next year with his.
* Merry mingle -
Consider hosting the holiday
as a couple. Invite members
of both sides of the family. It
will let everyone get to know
one another on a more inti-
mate level than they were
allowed over cocktails at your.
Wedding-reception. Keep con-
versations general and light;
avoid controversial topics that
might cause offense.
* Throw in the towel -
you can't please everyone. If
your new holiday traditions
are not well received by other
family members, opt to stay at
home, alone or with friends,
or others who have no plans.

There are no hard-set rules

for making it through the hol-
idays unscathed. However,
these pointers can make it
less painful:
* Accept it. You're the new
girl or guy, and it may take

under their wing.
e Be patient. You may be
meeting or spending time
with distant members of your
spouse's family for the first
time. Expect tons of ques-
tions, especially from that
aunt who loves gossip.
o Keep your opinions to
yourself (at least until you're
out of earshot on on the way
home). If the turkey was dry
or the dessert was dismal,
or the dessert was dismal,

grin and bear it. Offending
your hosts will not win brown-
ie points and could create
unnecessary rifts in the fami-
* Stay thick-skinned. If
you're hosting an event,
accept that there will be criti-
cism. Everyone believes his
or her way is the right way.
Humor the advice and just
nod in agreement, regardless
of what is said.
* Expect surprises. No fam-
ily is perfect, and you may
learn a little more than you
hoped for when the alcoholic
beverages are flowing. Also,
don't be surprised if there is a
family argument or another
shocker. People love to save
those moments for the holi-
* Relax and de-stress. It's
bound to be hectic. Set aside
some quiet time listening to
relaxing music or taking a
stroll to get away from all the
* Stick together. Your
spouse and you are a team
now. Work out your prefer-
ences and make holiday deci-
sions before you commit. This
way, you'll be on the same
page and won't risk getting
into arguments. Stay merry!

ure, men wear them to
work, formal events
and other occasions.
But, for something that does-
n't really have a purpose, ties
have been a component of
fashion for a long time.
Ties date back hundreds of
years. In 1660, a
regiment of victori-
ous soldiers from
the Austro-
Hungarian Empire
visited Louis XIV
in Paris. The sol-
diers were wearing
brightly colored
silk handkerchiefs
around their
necks. Fashion-
conscious Louis,
liked the handkerchiefs so
much that he made them an
insignia of royalty.
The style made its way to
England. There, a man was
considered well-dressed if he
wore a tie. Ties came in all












90Days ameAs Csh AC


shapes and sizes, with tassled
strings, plaid, ribbon, lace and
embroidered linen. And there
was no one way to knot it as
nearly 100 different knots
were worn.
Americans imported their
ties from Europe until the

Civil War. Slowly, the
American tie industry flour-
ished, rivaling European ties
by the early 1900s. But in the
1960s, people wore less for-
malwear, bringing a decline to
tie wear. However by the mid

1970s, the tie regained its
fashion status and has since
maintained its berth in men's

With so many ties to choose
from, you shouldn't just go
into to the store and
purchase the first tie
you see. When buying
a tie, consider these
tips from
* Make sure it ties a
knot well.
* Check the materi-
als. The best are silk
or a polyester-silk
blend. The inside of
the tie should be lined
with stiff material like 100 per-
cent wool or a wool mixture to
give it shape.
* Inspect the tie closely and
carefully, looking for any
loose threads. TF04C932

have just about everything in
order. Pick up a little some-
thing for someone who has
helped you out in the past.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Keep your mind off your
personal worries and on your
work today. Anger will only
lead to trouble. Don't let emo-

spending. Attend an
industry-related event. ***
, GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You will be one step
ahead of everyone else today.
Your ideas will lead to some
great gift-buying and surpris-
es you can begin to incorpo-
rate for someone who is
special to you. A little thought
can end up saving you money.

CANCER (June 21-July
22): Get over whatever little
melodrama is going on in
your personal life and look at
the big picture. You can dazzle
everyone with your intelligent

chance to advance
professionally is evident.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

can make a professional
change, but make sure that
the deal you make is a good
one. Get everything in
writing. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-

financial matters to yourself,
and don't donate to worthless
causes. *****
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Someone in your person-

today. Don't push him or her
into discussing what's wrong.

ventures that can help you pay
for all the little extras. **


Dad gets a dressing down

for parading around nude

DEAR ABBY: The letter
about the man who parades
around naked in front of his .
daughters after his shower
prompts my letter. His stated
reason is he claims he's hot
and needs to air-dry his hem-
orrhoids. Well, my advice for
him is to wrap a towel around
his waist, go straight to his
bedroom, shut the door and
do his "airing" there. Then if'
he wants, he can stand on his
head and air-dry them as long
as he darn well pleases. When
he's done, he can get dressed
and join the family. And if this
doesn't please him, send him
to a shrink. - SIMPLE
that poured in regarding that
letter - and scolding me for
my lighthearted answer -
was all over the map on this
subject. Your solution is a
good one, but read on:
DEAR ABBY: My father
also did that, and I turned out
just fine. I'm female,
37, happily married with no
emotional scars. Unless the
wife has reason to think he's a
predator, she should relax.
Americans - and I am one -
are far too hung up on nudity.
DEAR ABBY: Only people
with dirty minds equate
nudity (especially that of a
family member) with sex.
Those girls are probably so

Abigail Van Buren
used to it by now they think
nothing of it. I suspect this is a
power struggle between the
husband and wife, and it's
none of the mother-in-law's
business. - DISGUSTED
DEAR ABBY: The father's
actions are criminal. He's
sexually abusing the eyes and
emotions of those unwilling
witnesses. The wife and
mother-in-law should docu-
ment the times and dates of
these assaults. With that
documentation they can force
Dad into therapy long enough
to root out the evil beginnings
of this perverse behavior. -
European. For us, it is
completely normal to see our
parents naked. There is
nothing abnormal or wrong
about it. - YASMINE (U.S.
DEAR ABBY: I almost
spewed my coffee when I saw
the letter about the guy letting
his hemorrhoids air-dry in
front of his daughters. Can I
say one word here? Bathrobe!

DEAR ABBY: You should
have advised "Disgusted" to
tell her daughter to try once
more to calmly and intelli-
gently reason with her hus-
band. And if that doesn't do
the trick, the daughter should
inform her mother-in-law
about his behavior. One call
from his mother, and I'll bet
the practice would stop! -
DEAR ABBY: I'd get a
video camera and film him
without his knowledge. Then,
when his family comes to visit
over the holidays, I'd
announce that I have a
"special home video" to show.
Maybe when everyone has
seen him like that, her
husband will make an appoint-
ment with a surgeon to have
those hemorrhoids removed.
DEAR ABBY: I had a sim-
ilar problem with my husband
and son. Every night they'd
come to the dinner table and
eat their meal shirtless.
Finally, I decided I'd had
enough - so I calmly took off
my shirt and proceeded to eat
my meal. (They got the
message!) - DAWNELLE

Keepingstreets safe for holidaysBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLocal law enforcement agencies have vowed to make area roadways as safe as possible for the 2013 holi-day season. Tuesday afternoon members of the Columbia Traffic Safety Team held the organization’s Celebrate Safely press conference at the Lake City Gateway Airport promoting safety on the roads during this year’s holiday period. Representatives from the Florida Highway Patrol and the Lake City Police Department said their agen-cies would have additional person-nel on the road looking for impaired drivers. Florida Highway Patrol Maj. Gene Spaulding said FHP is participating in the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign through the remainder of the year. “Remember: Driving buzzed is driving drunk,” he said. Spaulding also spoke about the hazards of distracting driving and urged motorists to avoid using cell phones, programming GPS units, adjusting the radio, eating or drinking. Lake City Police Department chief Argatha Gilmore said the effort is dedicated to taking impaired drivers off the road. “LCPD will have units on patrol to specifically target drunk drivers,” she Law enforcementcoalition to targetimpaired drivers. By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comGovernor Rick Scott stopped by Lake City Tuesday afternoon, touting his accom-plishments as head of state at an invita-tion-only luncheon at Florida Gateway College organized by the Republican Party of Florida. State representatives Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City), and Charles Van Zant (R-Keystone Heights) and former Third Circuit Judge Vernon Douglas spoke briefly during Scott’s introduction to a roughly 400-person crowd filled with local community and business leaders. Scott began by retelling his childhood story about growing up in public housing with a single mother caring for five chil-dren, who encouraged Scott at a young age to regularly attend Methodist church, become an Eagle Scout and earn straight A’s in school. “Anything was possible,” Scott said. “It was just a matter of how hard did you want to work for it.” For much of his speech, Scott argued that fewer regulations and lower taxes on state business owners were responsible for much of Florida’s growth during his first term in office. He said he and his administration put Florida in the position to pay down $3.6 billion of the state’s debt, as well as an additional $3.5 billion owed to the federal government for unemployment insurance. He also strongly encouraged tourism as a driving force of Florida’s economy, citing 22.9 million visitors in third quarter 2013—the largest quarter of tourist influx in the state’s history. He also told the story of a lighthearted fishing competition between him, Texas Governor Rick Perry and teams of wounded warriors shortly after Scott was elected. Who was the best angler? The two governors couldn’t reach a consensus. Despite his confidence in his first term, Scott said he was tracking the days (321 as of today) until the next election. “This is going to be the most important race next year,” Scott said. “Reports show that when a governor of one party wins a state, there’s an 80 percent chance the president of the same party will win the state.” According to polls conducted by Quinnipiac, Saint Leo University, Gravis Marketing, and various other academic and political institutions, Scott trails for-mer governor Charlie Crist, running as a Democrat in 2014, by an average of five to 10 points. Regardless of what the future holds, Scott said he was pleased with Florida’s progress since his election in 2010. “I’ve seen a dramatic turnaround... way ahead of where I thought we’d be,” he said, closing his speech. “We should be the place where people come to get a job.”SCOTT STOPS BY Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterGov. Rick Scott spoke at the Republican Party of Florida lu ncheon held at the Florida Gateway College Howard Confer ence Center while passing through Lake City on Tuesday. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, and retired Judge E. Vernon Douglas spoke before introducing Scott to the crowd of hundreds of dignitaries and b usiness owners.

The “Christmas For The Less Fortunate” program provided more than $1,000 in clothes, toys, school supplies and shoes for some of the school’s needy children. Kellie Brown, Summers Elementary School PTO president, said Columbia Bank donated $500 to four select schools and Summers Elementary school was able to raise $1,400 to purchase items for the children. “We used that money to purchase coats, shoes and toys for 16 students here at Summers Elementary,” she said. Amy Stanton, Summers Elementary School principal, said she often greets the stu-dents as they get off the school buses in the mornings or sees them around campus and she has noticed that several need coats and warmer clothing. “Many of the students that are getting off the bus and oth-ers do not have proper ward-robe for this climate — they do not have jackets,” Stanton said. “Some in fact, if they have jack-ets, the jackets are pretty tat-tered. Not only to get a jacket, but get a name brand jacket ... and I know for our older chil-dren that’s a little bit important for them.” In addition to the gifts, the students are being treated to lunch at Ken’s Bar-B-Que. “It’s a celebration with a lunch, gifts and the students get to leave campus,” Stanton said. “The students get to have a Christmas time with just all of us.”A Christmas worth remembering for Summers Elementary students TONY BRITT/ Lake City ReporterAmy Stanton (from left), Summers Elementary School princip al, stands with Connie Anderson, Columbia Bank corporate trainer, K ellie Brown Summers Elementary School PTO president and Jennifer Fr eeman, PTO president-elect, as they show items purchased for the school’s Christmas For The Less Fortunate program.

SUMMERS continued on 3A SAFETY continued on 3A SAC proposes tobacco ban By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comThe Sports Advisory Council approved a recommendation to ban all tobacco products at Southside Recreation Complex during their monthly meeting Tuesday evening. In order to take effect, the recommendation would have to pass a major-ity vote from the Columbia County Board of County Commissioners. Jessica Langley, President of Lake City Columbia County Youth Baseball, proposed the idea. “If we’re really dealing with the youth out here, we need it banned from the area,” Langley said. “I just see too many people smoking freely around our kids. It’s ridiculous to see people in the bleachers smoking around everybody else.” The SAC voted unanimously in favor of Langley’s motion to establish Southside as a tobacco-free facility.

TODAY’S QUOTE‘Not to be absolutely cer-tain is, I think, one of the essential things in rational-ity.’ — Bertrand Russel NEWS FROM AROUND THE NATION Knox in email: ‘I didn’t kill Meredith’ FLORENCE, Italy — Amanda Knox declared her innocence in her roommate’s 2007 murder in a highly unusual email Tuesday to the Italian court hearing the case against her. The former U.S. exchange student also said she was staying away from the trial out of fear of being wrongly convicted. “I didn’t kill. I didn’t rape. I didn’t rob. I didn’t plot. I didn’t instigate. I didn’t kill Meredith,” Knox wrote. Knox, now 26, spent four years in jail in Italy. She was permitted to return to the United States in 2011 after she was acquitted on appeal — a decision overturned in March by Italy’s highest court, which sent it back for a second appeals trial. Prosecutors are seeking a 26-year sentence against both Knox and Rafael Sollecito for the murder, and an addi-tional year added to Knox’s three-year slander conviction — which stands — for wrongly accusing a bar owner of the murder. Prosecutors say the slander amounts to an aggra-vating circumstance, claiming that Knox lied to deflect inves-tigators’ attention from her. The trial continues Jan. 9 with summations by Sollecito’s defense, followed by rebuttals by both sides the next day. Nencini said the court would deliberate on Jan. 15.Jury weighs ex-BP engineers case NEW ORELANS — A jury has returned to a New Orleans courthouse for a second day of deliberations in the trial of a former BP engineer charged with trying to obstruct a federal probe of the company’s 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Jurors deliberated for roughly 90 minutes Monday after hearing closing argu-ments by Justice Department prosecutors and a lawyer for Kurt Mix, who is charged with two counts of obstruction of justice. Their deliberations resumed Tuesday morning. Prosecutors claim Mix was trying to destroy evidence when he deleted hundreds of text messages to and from a supervisor and a BP contrac-tor. Mix’s lawyers said their client didn’t hide anything from a grand jury that was investigating the spill.Big Sur, Calif. fire destroys 15 homes BIG SUR — A wildfire burning Monday in the Big Sur area of California destroyed at least 15 homes and forced about 100 people to evacuate as it chewed through dry vegetation on its way toward the ocean. No injuries were reported. The fire burned about 500 acres in the Pfeiffer Ridge area of Los Padres National Forest near state Highway 1, with 0 percent containment, Los Padres National Forest spokes-man Andrew Madsen said. Madsen said the fire destroyed the home of Big Sur Fire Chief Martha Karstens. “She left thinking that she was going to go protect other people’s homes,” Madsen said, “and it turns out that her own home has been consumed.” Officials were hopeful that they could contain the blaze this week.Nothing suspicious found at Harvard CAMBRIDGE — Four buildings on Harvard University’s campus were evacuated Monday after police received an email claiming that explo-sive devices may have been hidden inside, but after hours of searches and disruptions to final exams, no suspicious devices were found. The buildings were evacuated and access to Harvard Yard was restricted after the email was received at about 8:40 a.m. Monday, shortly before students were set to begin final exams. In a statement to the Harvard community, Harvard Executive Vice President Katie Lapp said that the build-ings were evacuated “out of an abundance of caution” and that activities at the Ivy League school in Cambridge were returning to normal. 5 THINGS TO KNOW TODAY IN FLORIDA Q Associated Press 4. Ocala Trauma fight now at DOH OCALA — More than a year after a disputed trauma center opened at Ocala Regional Medical Center, the Florida Department of Health has sent the legal battle to an administrative law judge. UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville last December challenged the trauma cen-ter’s openingn, arguing that the DOH did not follow the proper legal process. The department dismissed that challenge, but its decision was later reversed by the 1st District Court of Appeal. 5. Targeting inter-county criminals JACKSONVILLE — A bill filed Monday would make it a felony offense to cross county lines to commit crimes such as sexual bat-tery, burglary, kidnapping or trafficking in controlled sub-stances. Charles McBurney, R-Jacksonville, proposed the measure, which would apply when crimes are committed in counties other than where the perpetrators live. The mea-sure would take effect Oct. 1. 3. Lawmakers take on flood insurance CLEARWATER — Two Tampa Bay-area legisla-tors said Tuesday they are proposing a bill to give hom-eowners relief from rising flood insurance premiums. State Sen. Jeff Brandes and Rep. Larry Ahern said that the bill would allow private insur-ance companies to offer flood insurance policies to Florida homeowners. About 1.1 mil-lion homeowners nationwide have received taxpayer-sub-sidized rates and the govern-ment has financed about 60 percent of losses. 2. Med. marijuana on tight deadline TALLAHASSEE — Those in favor of constitutionalizing medical marijuana have until Feb. 1 to gather 683,189 voter signatures. As of Tuesday, 162,866 signatures had been certified. Attorney John Morgan says more than 600,000 petitions have been gathered. Now it’s a matter of having those signatures verified. Then it’s up to the Supreme Court to approve ballot summary language that could let voters decide whether to allow marijuana use for medical reasons. 1. Zimmerman’s attorney investigated ORLANDO — The attorney who helped get George Zimmerman acquitted of mur-der charges is being inves-tigated by the Florida Bar after a complaint was filed against him. Spokeswoman Francine Walker said in an email Tuesday that there was a pending complaint against Mark O’Mara regarding his representation of Zimmerman. A complaint doesn’t neces-sarily lead to discipline. Of more than 7,000 complaint files opened this year, roughly 200 have led to discipline.

BY EMAIL: Thanks for your help with food drive A time for memories T his morning I heard myself singing, “Deep in December it’s nice to remember.” That’s from a song in “The Fantasticks,” a musical I never saw and don’t care to recall. It was stuck on replay in my head the way some songs seem to get stuck there. Don’t ask me why. I was just glad it wasn’t “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth” or “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.” I get stuck on them sometimes, too. Those songs aren’t high on my Christmas play list. I’d prefer to get stuck on Handel’s “Messiah” or “O Holy Night” or even “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” But the older I get the more I find my mind has a mind of its own. There I was, loading the dishwasher, singing “Deep in December” when suddenly I remembered: Christmas is a time for remembering. One of my favorite holiday traditions is to ask friends or family or strangers in line at the post office, “What’s your favorite Christmas memory?” The answers often tell me more about the person than I could learn in an hour-long inter-view. See for yourself. Ask someone that question. But be prepared for them to ask you in return. What’s my favorite Christmas memory? Thanks for asking. For me, it’s not one, but a lifetime col-lection. For example: Christmas Eve, when I was 3, my dad point-ed to the sky and said, “Look. That’s the Star of Bethlehem.” I saw it that moment and every Christmas since, even if I can’t see the sky. -When I was 10, my family fell on hard times, harder than our usual, so Santa wouldn’t make it to our house until spring. But some good people from church brought us a ham and cookies and a tree with colored lights. After they left, my mother said, “Life is a bank. Sometimes you give, sometimes you take. It’s all the same bank. Just remember how it feels to take, because one day you will do the giving.” -When I was pregnant with my first child, I lay awake Christmas Eve, wanting to hold him, not in my belly, but in my arms. I couldn’t imagine it any more than I could imagine riding a donkey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. But I believed in the hope of it. And four weeks later, it came true. -My youngest was 7 when we spent Christmas at a cabin in the mountains. He asked Santa for a chance to see snow fall, and he got it. He also managed to lock the keys in the car, forcing his dad to jog three miles in the snow back to the cabin for a spare set of keys. -A few weeks before my first husband lost a long battle with cancer, we celebrated his 54th birthday on Christmas Eve with our three children. I remember their laughter, their faces, their eyes, how they shined. I wish you could’ve seen them. It was not our merriest Christmas, but I never knew one more holy. -My final favorite Christmas memory is this: After years as a widow, I remarried and moved with my new husband to Las Vegas. Christmas in the desert was different from those I knew in the mountains of the Carolinas, or on the coast of California. But the kids came to visit and we made the best of it. Then one night in January, it snowed. My husband and I put on every article of clothing we owned and sat out by a palm tree catch-ing snowflakes on our tongues. It wasn’t Christmas on the calendar. But it felt like it. Christmas is a time for singing songs, good or bad, for seeing stars and tasting snowflakes and believing in hope. Sometimes you give, sometimes you take. But it’s always a time to be thankful, whether you get what you want or have to jog three miles in the snow. It doesn’t have to be merry to be holy. It can happen any day, any time of year. Because more than a date on a calendar, Christmas is a feeling somewhere in the soul. Here’s wishing you and yours a Christmas to remember. T hanks to you, families who might otherwise have gone without will have a real Christmas dinner this year. Lake City Reporter readers pitched in to contribute more than half a ton of non-perishable food items to the paper’s sixth annual Community Food Drive. The drive, held from Dec. 2-13, was brief by design, the aim being to help tide folks over between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Food banks are usually inun-dated by late November, only to see contri-butions fall sharply before Christmas. Still, in less than two weeks you gave more than 1,200 lbs. of much-needed nour-ishment. All proceeds were sent to Florida Gateway Food Bank for distribution to local families. We thank you on their behalf. T here are bad ideas and then there are BAD ideas. The difference of course is in the potential for harm. A recent prime example of the latter can be found in Fisher-Price’s decision to begin exposing America’s babies to the wonder of technology within weeks of enter-ing the world. What obviously seemed like a good idea at the time for one of the nation’s most respect-ed manufacturers of educational toys is generating more than a little concern among those who think the rush to technological indoctrination has gone too far. The company, a subsidiary of toy giant Mattel, is providing parents the opportunity to begin familiariz-ing their newborns with the earliest training possible in life’s increas-ingly necessary functions by attach-ing iPads or similar modern mar-vels to their bouncy seats. Another company, CTA Digital, is offering the same thing in a potty chair. The bouncy seats, originally designed to strengthen legs before learning to walk, will now allow the babies to experience the wonders of apps as they bob happily along. In fact, the seats are labeled the “Newborn -to-Toddler Apptivity Seat.” The potty trainer permits a toddler to while away the experience by tapping on a screen. While I don’t remember my own experience with the potty trainer except I’m sure anything that would have distracted me from the busi-ness at hand while using it would have been welcomed. I do recall being told that my older sister who had decided to harass me while I was so engaged one day got too close and paid the consequence. Perhaps that wouldn’t have hap-pened had I been exposed to a mar-velous magical touch me screen on my chair. As for my own kids, it also might have eliminated standing around encouragingly to view the results and when they were positive clapping loudly in praise of a job well done. Seriously, is there any doubt in one’s mind that we have gone too far in our rush to reach global supe-riority in technology? The growing up experience already includes a dubious reliance far too much on an ability to cut corners in learning by using data packed devices that do everything for us from spelling to calculating our math to shouting out solutions to problems. Along the way millions of our children and grandchildren (in my case) spend hour upon hour staring at screens full of violence where they receive points for how many kills they register in an addictive ritual. For a long time Fisher-Price has been a recognized, respected leader in toys that permit the development of motor and mental skills-often mar-velous wooden and well made plastic teaching tools that also enhance social learning. With that reputation in mind, it is marketing the latest venture as “a grow-with-me seat for babies that’s soothing, entertaining, has a touch of technology, too.” The clamor against the idea however from the child development experts is considerable. Dr. Victor Strausburger, a pediatric professor at the University of New Mexico’s Medical School, posed this question in an interview with the Washington Post. “Does anyone out there think the kids need more screen time,” he asked, calling it a “terrible idea.” Obviously there is no way in this new culture that children can fail to be exposed to the technological revolution, even from an early age. Kids operate remote controls and other devices almost as toddlers. They learn quickly. But deliberately turning them into wonks as babies seems a fearful prospect we might seriously regret. TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1787, New Jersey became the third state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. in Dec. 1865, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery, was declared in effect by Secretary of State William H.

US Hwy. 90 386.755.2233 Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorder, known simply as TMJ Disorder, is a fairly common and very painful condition affecting our joint of mastication. This joint is do things like talk, chew, and yawn. Muscles surrounding the joint control the smooth movement the jaw to open or close the mouth. Between the surfaces of the joint sits a smooth cartilage disc enabling our mandible (jaw bone) to glide across or rotate against our skull, near our temples. In order to locate the joint, place in front of your ear and open and close your mouth. TMJ pain can occur suddenly without cause, or as a result of repetitive or acute trauma. to get TMJ. You can get it if you chew too much gum, or if you get in a car accident. Or, you can simply wake up one morning being unable to open or close your mouth. Muscle irritation, joint immobility, or disc diplacement can create a variety of symptoms, the most followed secondly by limita tion of motion. TMJ can be accompanied by jaw clicking or popping, freezing of the joint, headache, neck pain, earache, loss of appetite, or misalignment of teeth. A good physical therapist can assist you with your TMJ problems through a variety of proven techniques. A new treatment option, referred to as cold laser has been shown to be effective in decreas structures, allowing the jaw to functiown as designed. If you suffer from these symptoms, give us a call. We can help you. Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorder By: Brian Sganga Natural cure for holiday headaches Dear Pharmacist: Im prone to tension head aches, but during the holidays, theyre constant. I take ibuprofen and some times hydrocodone. Can you help me? J.R., San Jose, California Answer: Tension head aches are the most com mon type of headache. Millions of people get them. The trigger could be an argument, poor pos ture, lack of sleep, over working yourself, chronic pain, tight muscles, eye strain, skipping a meal or grinding your teeth. One main reason is muscle tightness. An occasional tension headache is no big deal, but if theyre chronic, defined by more than 15/ month for 3 months solid, I can see why you take that medicine! Termed CTTH, short for chronic tension-type headaches, these can cause depression, even if you are a happy-go-lucky person. While painful, these headaches differ form migraines because they dont have the nau sea, halo or any type of aura. This makes them much easier to manage as compared to migraines where you have to dis cover the migrenade and eliminate it. The term migrenade is my word for a trigger that you eat, inhale or create that goes off in your body like a grenade, causing your migraine. There are no real migrenades in CTTH so you can usually eliminate or at least man age these much quicker. The reduction of stress or ending an unhappy rela tionship can help. Here are some supplements that may help you become headache free: Rhodiola: Perfect for people with a lot of mental stress, emotional conflict or anxiety. As you know, that can cause tension headaches. Because rho diola removes ammonia and lactic acid from your blood, it could help with muscle fatigue. Shoot for about 100mg per day, taken anytime before lunch as it may be slightly stimulating. Magnesium: Simple solution for tight muscles, a common trigger for CTTH. Magnesium relax es your muscles. If you read my Drug Mugger book, over 200 prescrip tion medications mug it from your body leaving you at risk for muscle aches, migraines, depres sion, high blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmias. Some forms of magne sium will give you diar rhea. Choose high-quality brands. Arnica Cream: You can buy this at health food stores, it helps soothe muscle aches and relax tight muscles. When the ingredients found in this beautiful flower extract get into your cells, they temporarily shut down a metabolic path way called NF Kappa B, (NFB) which spills nasty pain-causing chemicals (termed cytokines). You can have your massage therapist rub it on too. Hops: Known also as Humulus lupulus, this herb can reduce hista mine levels, a compound (better termed a cyto kine) that is associated with headaches. Hops also helps you to fall asleep, and we know insomnia is a trigger for CTTH (and migraines). When I say hops, I mean the supple ment form or tea, not beer! Hops is known as a flavoring agent in beer. I offer natural and pharmaceutical treatment options for dozens of types of headaches in my new book, Headache Free available in January.

From staff reports GAINESVILLE For people with neurological disorders who use deep brain stimulators, a low bat tery can mean the return of mentally and physi cally crippling symptoms. Fortunately for some of these people, now theres an app to assist with that. In fact, help is now just a smartphone away. The UF Health Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration has developed an iPhone and Android app for patients who use deep brain stimu lators, or DBS. The app, released this month, enables clinicians and patients to measure the battery life left in their DBS devices. This is good news for the more than 100,000 people worldwide with implanted deep brain stimulators. During the past several years, we have implant ed nearly 1,000 of these devices at UF Heath and have studied short and long-term benefits and side effects, explained the centers co-director, Michael S. Okun, M.D. In some cases, battery deple tion could lead to rebound of motor symptoms like tremor or dystonia, but in other neuropsychiatric conditions, it could lead to suicide attempts or other devastating consequenc es. Okun, University of Florida medical stu dent Mike Montuno and area high school student Andrew Kohner studied the relationship between battery depletion and symptom recurrence as part of a summer research project. Their work culminated in a paper published online in PLOS ONE, a peerreviewed, open-access journal. UF medical stu dent Kaihan Fakhar also published a follow-up paper on the site propos ing an algorithm to avoid the DBS battery-related issue. We wanted to develop a simple tool and put it in the hands of physicians and patients, Okun said. During a doctors visit, the clinician can show the patient which are the simulation set tings on the device. In less than a minute, they can check the battery lev els and schedule a preemptive battery change, if necessary, before reemergence of bothersome and potentially devastat ing symptoms. The new app provides patients and their families with a new level of comfort and ease. I can get up-to-date information on the battery life for Austin, anytime and anywhere, said Michele Streitmatter, mother of Austin Streitmatter, a patient of Okuns with dystonia. I dont have to worry about where we are or interrupt his schedule; I will know exactly when I need to make arrange ments. This will give Austin a sense of control over his dystonia, which means the world to us.

RUSSOAssociated PressNEW YORK — A tackle-machine linebacker, a tackle-busting running back and one of the most disruptive defensive tack-les in the country made return appearances on The Associated Press All-America team. Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey and Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton were selected to the first team for the second straight season. The All-America teams were released Tuesday and selected by a panel of AP college football poll voters. Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan made the second team, along with offensive tack-le Cameron Erving. The Seminoles had six players on the three teams, the most of any school. Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston from Florida State added All-American to his resume after a spectacular redshirt freshman season. Heisman finalists Andre Williams from Boston College and Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch also made the first team. Williams joins Carey in the backfield and Lynch, the dual-threat quarter-back, was chosen as an all-purpose player. Carey and Williams are set to compete on the same field this bowl season when Arizona and Boston College meet in the Advocare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, La., on Dec. 31. It will mark the first time since the 1977 Rose Bowl that two players selected first-team AP All-America at running back then faced off in a bowl. That game featured Michigan’s Rob Lytle and Southern California’s Ricky Bell. Mosley, a senior, was the leading tackler for a defense that ranked fifth in the country in yards allowed per game. Sutton, a senior, was named Pac-12 defensive player of the year for the season straight season. Winston, a landslide Heisman winner last week, is joined on the first team by three Florida State teammates — cen-ter Bryan Stork, kicker Roberto Aguayo and cor-nerback Lamarcus Joyner — to give the top-ranked Seminoles more than any other school. No. 2 Auburn, which plays Florida State on Jan. 6 in the BCS championship game in Pasadena, Calif., placed Heisman finalists Tre’ Mason on the second team at running back and offensive lineman Reese Dismukes and Gregory Robinson on the third team. Lake City’s Jernigan named to second team. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia High product Timmy Jernigan signals to the Seminole faithful before playing the annual Florida-Florid a State game in Gainesville earlier this year.

DEAR ABBY: A couple of years ago, my husband informed me that he likes to dress in women’s cloth-ing. Since then he has read books, is seeing a coun-selor, and the reality is, he is transgender. He now wears his hair long and has long fingernails. I have tried to be understanding and have gone places with him when he is dressed as a woman. He has met other transgender people who have either made the full transition or are content without it. I allow my husband time with these new friends without me. I did feel weird that he was clothes shop-ping and going to movies with his new friends. I have reconciled with these activities and I’m OK with them so far. But I have told him that if he decides to change his gender to female, I will not be able to be married to him. He’s on hormones at the moment and has told me he plans to start testosterone blockers. I love him, Abby, but NOT the woman side of him. Am I unreasonable to put a boundary on my mar-riage? He thinks if he slow-ly eases me into the idea that it will be OK. He says I am his “world” and I should love him no matter what gender he is. Am I being selfish? — SOMEWHERE IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR SOMEWHERE: You appear to be a loving and accepting wife. You may be your husband’s world, but his world is changing -and along with it, so is yours. It is not selfish to take care of yourself. You did not enter your marriage to be part-nered with another woman, and you should not be made to feel guilty remaining with one if it’s not what you want. Some spouses stay together; others just can’t. If you haven’t heard of the Straight Spouse Network, it is a confidential support network of current or for-mer heterosexual spouses or partners of gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender mates. It was founded in 1991, and its mission is to help straight spouses or partners cope with coming-out issues, and help mixed-orientation couples and their children build bridges of understanding. To learn more about it and find a sup-port group near you, visit DEAR ABBY: I have always had an extremely close relationship with my little sister. Last year, I graduated from high school and left for univer-sity. It was hard for both of us. My college is an hour away from where my family lives, so even though I live on campus, I try to come home whenever I can to visit on weekends. Lately it seems like my little sister has emotionally distanced herself from me. She doesn’t confide in me anymore, shows little inter-est in my life, and it has gotten to the point where she barely acknowledges me in public. I have tried talking to her about it and telling her how much it hurts me, but she tells me I’m overreacting and to stop being stupid. My mom says she does this with everyone and that this is typical for a 14-year-old teenager, but it breaks my heart to be so excluded from her life. Is this just a phase I have to learn to deal with and accept? What should I do? — SAD BIG SISTER IN SWITZERLAND DEAR BIG SISTER: Your sister is growing up, and part of that process means becoming an indi-vidual. Right now she is try-ing to figure out who she is, apart from the family she loves – including you. I’m sure she isn’t intention-ally trying to hurt your feelings. Because you were so close, she may have felt abandoned when you left for college. Your mother is right about this. Let your sister evolve. She’ll be back. Accept it for now. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Do something nice for someone going through a tough time. Taking a stance and speak-ing up about your beliefs, theories and concerns will put you in the limelight and create a stir in your community or amongst your friends. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Make travel plans or visit friends or rel-atives you don’t get to see often. Talk over changes you want to make within an important relationship. Firm up on any agreement you have regarding legal or contractual connota-tions. ++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Keep your secrets locked up tight. An impulsive move due to an emotional situation will leave you in a questionable position. Prepare to make a decision that will alter who you spend time with between now and the end of the year. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): A little rest will do you good. Continually trying to make everything perfect for others will take its toll on you emotionally, mentally and physically. Consider booking a mas-sage or a day at the spa. Romance will ease stress. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do what’s expected of you and keep moving. Hook up with friends or shop for special items that will make your life easier or more comfortable. Don’t rely on others when it’s up to you to make things happen. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t jump to conclusions or make a hasty move. Focus on getting things done and spending time with the people you love the most. Picking up a new outfit or updating your look will help boost your confidence. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional problems will surface if you are deal-ing with children or any-one that depends on you. Look for answers that will help improve the dynamic of any relationship you feel is worthwhile. Avoid excess and improve your health. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Do something unique if you plan to entertain and make an impression on your guests. A change to the way you live will enhance your life and give you plenty to look forward to. Romance will pay off. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make changes at home that will bright-en your environment. More activity will motivate you to expand your interests. Consider how you want to ring in the New Year and make plans that include the people you enjoy being around the most. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Listen to what’s being said, but don’t take offense. Everyone is entitled to his or her opin-ion. Anger is a waste of time and constructive criti-cism, although not favored, can be of help in the not-too-distant future. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Surround yourself with people who inspire you. Once you get started in a direction that allows you to utilize the things you do best, you will be unstoppable. A change of plans will end up being to your benefit. Enjoy the moment. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Go out and hustle to get all the little things done that have been nagging at you. A chance to spend time with some-one you love to be around should be planned for the evening hours. A commit-ment can and should be made. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
