DAVE KIMLER/ Lake City Reporter By TONY BRITT email@example.com T raveling by boat from Alligator Lake to the Santa Fe River would normally be an exercise in futility, but when floodwaters from Tropical Storm Debby inundated Columbia County and the Ichetucknee Trace last month, the old river that had been under ground for many decades seemed to reappear on the landscape. The Ichetucknee River Trace is the former riverbed of the Ichetucknee River where the river histori cally flowed aboveg round. The Ichetucknee River Trace begins at the head springs of Ichetucknee Springs State Park and goes north, ending near Interstate 75 and State Road 47. The trace ends where Cannon Creek and Clay Hole Creek meet. When I used to give tours over here I used to tell TRACE continued on 6A Cody Scarp, contours of ancient coastline, forms rough boundary. A new twist for political forum Despite rainfall, water restrictions remain in effect JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Anthony Free, an audio/visual, television specialist at Florida Gateway College, works on TV monitors in preparation for the live broadcasts of the candidate forum, which will be held at the college on July 30, 31 and August 2. Thirty-seven candi dates for city and county commission, state attorney, Third Circuit judge, Columbia County Sheriff, Columbia County school superintendent and school board will be questioned by Lake City Reporter Editor Robert Bridges. Some candidate questions may be selected by readers By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org Thirty-seven local candidates will be tested on July 30, 31 and August 2 during a live broadcast of the candidate forum, an event in which campaigning citizens will be pitted against one another to answer ques tions about local issues. For the first time, community members are encouraged to send in their questions for the candidates. Mike McKee, Director of Media and Public Information at Florida Gateway College, which hosts and co-sponsors the event with the Lake City Reporter said the experience can be harrowing for candidates. Theres a lot of pressure because you are on the air live, you are asked questions that you have no idea what they are and you have to respond with the people that you are run ning against, said McKee, moderator of the event. So the voter can com pare the answers given by each can didate side by side by side. McKee said candidates sometimes get stage fright after being asked a question. Its kind of uncomfortable to watch when its their time to respond Forum will be televised live from FGC on 3 nights.

Groundwater levels in most areas in the Suwannee River Water Management District have rebounded from severe lows following record rainfall from Tropical Storms Beryl and Debby. However, the eastern and extreme southern portions of the district are still experiencing low and extremely low groundwater levels, and many counties still have 12-month rainfall deficits of as much as 15-20 inches, according to the latest hydrologic con ditions report from the district. Groundwater monitoring wells in Columbia County measure the Floridan aquifer at normal or above normal levels, according to the report. Wells near the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers rose to their highest levels since previous floods. SURPLUS continued on 7A Shortelle

Disaster officials said Friday that finan cial help is now available to those damaged by last months storm in Hillsborough, Manatee and Taylor counties. The unem ployment assistance for a period of a maximum of 28 weeks has also been made available earlier to more than a dozen other counties, mostly stretching across the northern parts of Florida. President Barack Obama declared a major disaster area for the state of Florida on July 3 as a result of the damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby that swept across the state in late June. Eight deaths were attributed to the storm, in addition to the flooding and wind damage in some parts of Florida. 1 shot, 1 injured in Tampa bar shooting TAMPA Authorities say a 23-year-old man is dead and another person injured after being shot outside of a bar in Tampa. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office says Pablo Bonilla was inside the Whiskey Park North Bar Saturday at about 3 a.m. when he saw a man speaking with his girl friend. Bonilla and the man got into a verbal confrontation but were separated before it escalated. When the bar closed, Bonilla, his girl friend and several other people were stand ing in the parking lot. Thats when inves tigators say a car pulled up and a gunman got out and opened fire. Bonilla and a second man were struck. Bonilla was taken to a local hospital where he died. The second victim is being treated and expected to survive. The suspect fled the scene. Snorkelers, divers listen to music beneath the sea BIG PINE KEY About 300 snorkel ers and divers have submerged to listen to a local radio stations music broadcast beneath the sea in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The quirky Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival, at Looe Key Reef Saturday, featured four hours of commercial-free music especially programmed for the sub sea listening experience. The theme from the Little Mermaid, the Beatles Octopuss Garden and Jimmy Buffetts Fins were among songs played along with public service announcements that encouraged coral reef protection. Participants described listening to music underwater as ethereal and said they could feel the sound within their bodies. Some divers were costumed and pre tended to play a metal artists sculpted instruments. The event was organized by Keys radio station WWUS and the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce. FSU expected to bring back anthropology major TALLAHASSEE Florida State University trustees are expected to rein state the schools anthropology program after it was cut in 2009 during campuswide belt tightening. The Tallahassee Democrat reports the universitys anthropology major could be back on the books in time for the spring 2013 semester. The university stopped offering the major in the wake of dramatic state fund ing cuts. But FSU has continued to offer anthropology courses and two of the departments longstanding tenured pro fessors were reinstated in 2010. Gov. Rick Scott brought anthropology into the national spotlight last year when he quipped that Florida didnt need any more anthropology majors. FSU President Eric Barron made the case for bringing the major back at a trustees workshop in June. Trustees will vote on the decision in September. Body of missing man, 80, found in old grove FORT PIERCE The body of a miss ing 80-year-old man has been found an old grove in central Florida. The St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office says authorities in Indian River County found the body of Stanley Goldberg on Friday afternoon. Investigators report Goldberg was found deceased in the driver seat of his vehicle. There were no signs of criminal activity. An autopsy will be performed to determine his cause of death. A concerned neighbor reported on Tuesday that he had not seen Goldberg since the previous Saturday. He was last seen stopping to fuel his car in Vero Beach on Monday. Authorities say Goldberg was suffer ing from the early stages of Alzheimers Disease. Man gets 25 years for DUI crash that killed wife TAMPA A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for a drunken driving crash that left his wife dead. A Hillsborough County judge sentenced 60-year-old Charles Peoples on Friday after he had previously pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter, driving on a revoked license and violation of probation. Authorities say Peoples was already on probation for driving with a revoked license in November 2010 when he crashed into another vehicle on Interstate 75. State troopers reported that Peoples had cut his wife Wandas seatbelt after the crash and tried to move her to the drivers seat. Peoples blood alcohol level was record ed at .204 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at .08 percent. Tallahassee couple charged with fraud in BP spill TALLAHASSEE A Tallahassee couple has been charged with submitting false claims to the fund created to com pensate victims of the 2010 BP oil spill. The U.S. Attorneys Office reported Friday that 46-year-old Henry Clyde Barnes and 41-year-old Nadine Barnes face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. According to the indictment, the pair sought reimbursement for work at a prop erty management company that never existed. It wasnt immediately clear if they had an attorney.

Members of the oldest and largest organi zations devoted to the legacy of Henry David Thoreau are celebrat ing the passage of 150 years since the author and naturalist died in Massachusetts. Members of the Thoreau Society gathered in Concord on Saturday for the third day of their annual gather ing. The event, scheduled to end Sunday, features nature walks, work shops and a keynote speech by twotime Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Wilson. Thoreau, who lived from 1817 to 1862, is well-known for his reflec tions on simple living in nature, espe cially through his book Walden, about his two-year retreat in a small house on Walden Pond in his home town of Concord. He also wrote The Maine Woods, a lesser-known book about his observations and thoughts during his three journeys to north ern Maine in 1846, 1853 and 1857. Malloy to visit students performing at Olympics HARTFORD, Conn. Gov. Dannel Malloy plans to visit a high school jazz group in Hartford that is heading to London to perform at the Olympics. Malloy is scheduled to visit the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts on Monday to give a send-off to the Real Ambassadors at one of their final rehearsals for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. The Real Ambassadors, a high school jazz group from the academy, was one of a select few groups asked to perform at the games. The community is invited to attend the rehearsal, which will be held at 15 Vernon St., from 1-2 p.m. The school is asking for a $10 donation from those attending to help cover the costs for the students to perform in London. The academy is an inter-district magnet high school. Mass. doctor awaits Green Party nod BALTIMORE A doctor who ran against Mitt Romney for Massachusetts governor a decade ago is poised to do it again, this time as the Green Partys presidential nominee. Jill Stein, an internist from Lexington, Mass., acknowledges that her candidacy is a super long shot. Still, she notes that a growing number of people are expressing frustration with the two major politi cal parties and she cites the Occupy Wall Street movement as an example of that. We are in it to win it, but were also in it to build it, and those are both wins in my book, Stein, 62, said in an interview at the Green Partys convention in Baltimore, where she was prepared to give her acceptance speech in the afternoon. Stein was far ahead of comedian Roseanne Barr for the party nod. Convention organizers said Barr was not expected to attend. Stein hopes the party will qualify in at least 40 states, but the total now stands at 21 and does not include state hosting the convention. Stein also notes that the Green Party has qualified for federal matching funds for the first time in its 11-year his tory. It is yet another sign that we are in a different historical moment right now that people are tak ing the stakes here very seriously and understanding that it is we, ourselves, who are going to get us out of this mess, we, the American people, Stein said. The corporatesponsored political parties the establishment isnt going to change the status quo for us. Weve got to do it. Stein has been running for office in Massachusetts over the past decade. In the 2002 race against Romney, she only won 3 percent of the vote. I entered that race in des peration as a medical doctor and a mother seeing things unraveling and the political system incapable of responding to it, Stein said. She says she doesnt worry that even a marginal performance in a single state could tip the scales against President Barack Obama. Many viewed Green Party candidate Ralph Naders showing in Florida in 2000 as a big factor in Democrat Al Gores loss to Republican George W. Bush. You dont get democracy by silencing the voice of the public interest, Stein said. Stein also made unsuccessful runs for secretary of state in 2006 and governor again in 2010. She is highlighting what she describes as a Green New Deal as the main focus of her platform. She calls it an emergency program designed to create 25 million jobs and jump-start a green economy for the 21st century to help address cli mate change and make wars for oil obsolete. n ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHS grad heads to command position From Staff Reports CAMP PENDLETON In a June 1 ceremony, Navy Captain Jeff Plummer was awarded the Dept. of Defense Meritorious Service Medal for ser vice as Executive Officer of the Naval Hospital at Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, California. As we emerge from over a decade of war, caring for sailors, Marines and their families on the battlefield and in our hospitals has never been more impor tant to the strength of our U.S. military forces. The challenges and sacrifices made by the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton have been great; it has been a privi lege to serve these great Americans during this important time in our his tory, Plummer recalled. Plummers next assign ment is as the command ing officer of the U.S. Naval Hospital on the Pacific island of Guam. A stra tegic American territory since its liberation during WWII, Guam is uniquely positioned to provide a forward military presence in this region of growing importance. A new naval hospital in under construc tion there, with a planned opening in late 2013. The captain is a 1983 graduate of CHS, a 1987 graduate of the University of Florida, and the son of Russell and Sandra Plummer of Lake City. From Staff Reports During the past five years, the Banner Center for Global Logistics at Florida Gateway College helped strengthen and develop logistics and sup ply chain management, not only in Columbia County, but throughout the state, officials said. The Banner Center for Global Logistics went by the wayside July 1, the end of a five-year contract with Workforce Florida and Florida Gateway College. This does not mean the end of logistics and supply chain man agement at FGC, though on the contrary, FGC will focus its efforts on growing its own global logistics program, offi cials said. In 2007, Workforce Florida began conduct ing research on various industry needs through out the state, identifying several: advanced manu facturing, agriscience, clean energy, creative industries, global logis tics, among others. The purpose of this was to create a statewide, indus try-driven initiative focused on education and training. Through direct input from Florida-based businesses, the states 11 current and planned Banner Centers focus on developing and coordinat ing educational and train ing resources to boost the competitiveness of targeted industries that diversify Floridas econ omy. Florida Gateway College was awarded the Banner Center for Global Logistics, the goal of which was to develop a pipeline of well-quali fied, entry-level workers and improve the skills of the logistics and distri bution industrys current workforce. This was the first Banner Center locat ed in one of the states Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern. For the past five years, the center has sup ported Florida indus tries by offering skilled worker training and continuous education services, curriculum development and educa tional research, among other things. Numerous national logistics sup pliers Rooms2Go, Walmart, JaxPort, BrazilJax Alliance, CSX, among others were on the banner centers advisory council. This was the first time many of these busi nesses had been brought together to discuss simi lar needs in education and training for their workforce. The Banner Center also helped develop curricu lum framework for high schools and post-second ary education. Because of the Banner Center, there are seven career acad emies throughout the region, including those at Columbia and Baker high schools. Many believe that the Banner Center was sup posed to create jobs, but that wasnt the mission, said Tracy Hickman, vice president for occupational programs. It was to bring industry together to sup port a career pathway and develop training for what the industry needed. Local industry officials were brought together in May at the ports of Los Angeles to continue to learn more about the importance of ports and how they can affect the supply chain industry. Though it is larger than the Jacksonville port, future expansion will bring more jobs to the area through the inland port project. This concept, which will allow quicker off-loading and move ment of containers, will have containers unloaded at the Jacksonville port off-loaded and brought by trucks and train to the inland ports for inspec tion. The trip allowed for instructive interaction between educators and industry representatives on the importance of pro fessional training and edu cation for the entire sup ply chain industry. As the Banner Center concludes, FGC turns its focus to building its logistics and supply chain management program with a highly-skilled, highly-trained workforce through partnerships with high schools, to apply for grants, and support the IDA and chamber of com merce through workforce programs. From Staff Reports LIVE OAK The Suwannee River Water Management District Governing Board this week approved the tentative FY 201213 budget as well as a new budgeting method that more accurately reflects and supports the agencys core mission and includes funding for cost-share programs. The 2012-13 budget represents a revised standardized approach to budgeting and fiscal responsibility. For the first time, the District has developed an annual opera tions budget. This approach, consistent with other water management districts, allows for improved tracking of costs and performance evaluations. This budget includes targeted expendi tures that are expected to produce tangible results in effectively addressing the funda mental issues of water supply and water quality, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. One change involves the designation and funding of reserves. Rather than car rying over each year, the bulk of reserve funds which currently totals $44.6 mil lion will be spent down over a fouryear period. The District has chosen to designate funds to support projects and cost-share programs that will benefit the citizens of the District. The proposed millage rate of 0.4143, or $41.43 for every $1,000 of assessed proper ty value, is unchanged from last year. The owner of a $200,000 house with a $50,000 homestead exemption would pay $62.14 in property taxes to the District and will see no increase in taxes. In 2012-13, the District will set aside $3 million for agricultural and interagencylocal government cost-share programs. Examples of agricultural programs include installation and implementation of water conservation and nutrient management improvements and practices. Local gov ernment projects may include alternative water supply, water quality improvement, and flood control projects. The District will hold public hearings on the budget at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 11, and Sept. 25 at District headquarters in Live Oak.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com Yet another massacre in Syria Q The Washington Post Q Orange County Register OPINION Sunday, July 15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AEDIT ANOTHER VIEW T he House Agriculture Committee has reported out its ver-sion of a new farm bill that will cut $16.5 billion over 10 years from funding of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), once known as food stamps. The cuts in the House bill exceed those in the Senate bill by $12 billion. Sixteen-and-a-half billion dollars over a decade amount to a whopping 2 percent cut in SNAP program expenditures, which last year alone came to $78 billion. At a time when we are running trillion-dollar annual federal budget deficits, itÂ’s hard to see a 2 percent cut in any large spending program as provocative. Particularly in a program like SNAP, where spending in 2011 was over 400 percent higher than in 2000. Yet, liberals are predictably ringing the alarm. Assistant House Democratic leader James Clyburn of South Carolina called the cuts Â“abominable,Â” suggest-ing they will jeopardize nutrition of children and that itÂ’s all about protecting Â“the wealthy and the well to do.Â” I recall these kinds of charges from the left when I worked on reforming welfare in 1995 and 1996. Those reforms, signed into law by President Bill Clinton, were far more sweeping than 2 percent cuts. Not only did dooms-day predictions not occur, but welfare rolls were dramatically reduced -not by casting anyone into the street, but by young women on welfare going to work. If cutting back on SNAP spending is about protecting Â“the wealthy,Â” as Clyburn would have us believe, why do big cor-porations such as Pepsi, Coca Cola, Kraft Foods and Kroger support and lobby for the pro-gram, as Time magazine recently reported? ItÂ’s because governmentspending programs, even if initi-ated with the best of intentions, wind up being about interests, not efficiency or compassion. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 18 million Americans received SNAP benefits in 2000. By 2011, this had grown to 45 million, one in seven Americans. Liberals tells us that this programÂ’s mind-boggling growth is explained by our foundering economy. But, as Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama points out, spending on this program increased 100 percent from 2001 to 2006, a period over which there was no increase in the rate of unemployment. From 2007 to 2011, spending increased 135 percent. But CBO attributes only about 65 percent of the dramatic growth in pro-gram spending and the number of recipients to the recession. HereÂ’s what else has happened: It has become increasingly easy to qualify for SNAP benefits, the government has been spending more taxpayer funds promoting the program, and the stigma of SNAP, food stamps, being per-ceived as a welfare program has disappeared. A New York Times article in 2010 carried the headline, Â“Once Stigmatized, Food Stamps Find Acceptance.Â” The article notes posters in New York City announcing Â“Applying for food stamps is easier than everÂ” and quotes Eric Bost, head of the pro-gram under President George W. Bush, saying, Â“I assure you, food stamps is not welfare.Â” According to CBO, threefourths of recipients are Â“categor-ically eligible,Â” which means they automatically qualify by virtue of participating in some other feder-al or state welfare program. They need not be receiving cash ben-efits from these programs. Simply having received an information pamphlet can be enough. At one time, recipients received their food-stamp ben-efits in dollar-denominated paper vouchers presented at the cash register. Now benefits come on a sharp-looking electronic debit card like any credit or debit card. And the fact that SNAP funds are provided by the federal gov-ernment, but administered and spent by the states, is a proven formula, as in Medicaid, for undisciplined spending growth. Sadly, our nation has become a food-stamp plantation. The most compassionate thing that can be done today is exactly what is not happening: economic growth, job creation and get-ting folks to work. The path to this end is less government, not more. F or many, there is little concern about the current do-nothing Congress; they figure at least itÂ’s not doing harm. But there is another way to look at the inability of this Congress to actually do anything. By not taking action on issues that bear heavily on AmericansÂ’ financial problems, Congress is making life much harder on all of us. And it could get much worse. Oh, there are votes, but they donÂ’t mean anything. For example, the GOP-controlled House has voted 33 times to repeal President Barack ObamaÂ’s health care law; the Democratic-controlled Senate will not act. The House voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over confidential documents on a controversial gun program Republicans said they need. The Senate has made clear it will not act, saying Holder testified nine times and gave Congress 7,600 pages of documents. Meanwhile, votes on five critical issues have not been sched-uled and will not occur until late in the year, if at all in 2012. By January, extended unemployment benefits will end. That will affect thousands who lost their jobs and still arenÂ’t working. It is estimated that will result in $40 billion less consumer spend-ing a year. Democrats want ben-efits extended; Republicans say the country canÂ’t afford it. At the end of the year, the tax cuts President George W. Bush pushed through Congress will expire. If they are not extended and if Congress fails to address the problem of the alternative minimum tax suddenly affect-ing thousands of middle-income families, household spending is expected to fall by $280 billion. For the average family, thatÂ’s a tax increase of $1,750 a year. At the end of 2012, the 2011 Budget Control Act means $110 billion will be cut automatically from federal spending, no matter whose ox is gored. Half will come from the military, a Â“disaster,Â” according to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. Democrats are adamant that incomes above $250,000 a year must generate more revenue. Republicans oppose all tax hikes. Tea partiers are determined to cut the deficit, no matter who is hurt. Not a reassuring scenario. S yria has slipped deeper into the abyss. Perhaps as many as 220 people have been killed in a farming town, Tremseh, northwest of the city of Hama, by shelling and shooting from Syrian forces. Reports suggest that the town was first attacked from the air and then stormed by militia-men who slaughtered civilians. As bodies were grimly laid out in mass graves on Friday, the opposition called it a massacre, as did Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The assault appears to fit a pattern of ethnic cleansing in which government forces and militias from Alawite villages are laying siege to large-ly Sunni towns. President Bashar al-Assad is an Alawite, part of a minority in Syria that is the backbone of his power. He has brazenly defied appeals from the rest of the world to stop the violent sup-pression of the rebellion against his rule. Russia is shielding Mr. Assad, steadfastly refusing to support stronger measures sought by the United States and others. The U.N. special envoy, Kofi Annan, laid out a plan for a cease-fire and political transition, but it has been shattered by the worsening violence. The risks of inaction are more evident every day. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that military forces have begun moving part of SyriaÂ’s stockpile of chemical weapons, for reasons that are unclear. Perhaps the regime is nervous and wants to better safeguard the deadly nerve and blister agents. Syria also possesses delivery vehicles, including aerial bombs, artillery and missiles. Would Mr. Assad, in a moment of irrational despera-tion, use a chemical weapon against his foes? It would be a grave turn of events. The Obama administration has conceded to Russian intran-sigence on Syria in the past; now is the time to stop. Should the sanctions proposal fail, the United States should allow the U.N. mission to expire. Moscow should be told that if it wishes to avoid such steps, it must back U.N. sanctions. S ome of the most onerous obligations of the illogically named Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare, may yet be defeat-ed. When the U.S. Supreme Court upheld ObamacareÂ’s constitutionality by curiously deciding its penalty for not buying health insurance is really a tax, justices also said something that made more sense: States may opt out of the lawÂ’s costly expansion of Medicaid Â– the government health insurance system for the poor Â– without losing exist-ing Medicaid funding, as the law threatened. States can save tens of billions of dollars by not expand-ing Medicaid coverage (known as Medi-Cal in California) to people who earn as 133 percent of the poverty level, and to childless single men. Although Washington would pay 100 percent of the added costs in the first year, and 90 percent beginning in 2020, state budgets still would face huge additional costs. Not surprisingly, six states already have opted out. Texas announced this week it will refuse to join the Medicaid expansion and also will not establish a health insurance exchange, another provision of the law. More states may join them. It is likely Republican-governed states will opt out, while Democratic states may not, the libertarian Cato InstituteÂ’s health policy expert Michael Tanner suggested to us. Unsurprisingly, Gov. Jerry BrownÂ’s administration praises Obamacare, and California in 2010 was the first to create an exchange Â– a state-run market of sorts for consumers to shop for federally subsidized insur-ance. The practical effect is that CaliforniaÂ’s already overly generous Medi-Cal benefits will become more gener-ous, while other statesÂ’ will be relatively less so. Adding patients to Medicaid, with its notoriously low fees for doc-tors, may prompt physicians to leave blue states for red states, or more of them to refuse to accept Medicaid patients alto-gether. Politically, changes may be more substantive. Mr. Tanner tells us states refus-ing to expand Medicaid not only will save billions, but they can save millions in operating costs by not creating insurance exchanges. Obamacare provides for the federal government to set up exchanges, and pay to run them, in states that refuse to. According to Mr. Tanner, a federal government-operated exchange is likely to attract people Obamacare intended to cover with the Medicaid expan-sion. But the federal governmentÂ’s subsidy for exchange-provided insurance is costlier than its sub-sidy for an expanded Medicaid program. If all 50 states were to opt out of expanding Medicaid, the net increase to the federal government could be as much as $100 billion a year, according to Mr. Tanner. Even ObamacareÂ’s 20plus new taxes donÂ’t cover this. A Republican-controlled House of Representatives, already threatening to defund Obamacare, isnÂ’t likely to OK an additional $100 billion. The bottom line is that states opting out of ObamacareÂ’s Medicaid expansion and insur-ance exchanges may effec-tively bankrupt the program, even if Congress doesnÂ’t repeal or defund it.

people that sooner or later a hurricane was going to stall over Lake City and Columbia County and you would be able to take a motor boat from Alligator Lake all the way down to the Santa Fe River, said Jim Stevenson, Wakulla Springs Alliance member and former Ichetucknee Springs Basin Working Group coordinator. I understand it almost hap pened this time and this was from a tropical storm. So that risk is always there. Stevenson said a Columbia County map from 1829 shows the Ichetucknee Trace as an aboveground river run ning through the county. The river was even tually captured by the sinkholes and cave system beneath, so its an under ground river that used to be a surface river, said Stevenson. The Ichetucknee River Trace once flowed along an area that in places closely follows State Road 47. The Ichetucknee River has three tributaries: Cannon Creek, Clay Hole Creek and Rose Creek. The tributaries are still part of the Ichetucknee River system and dur ing recent flooding from Tropical Storm Debby, the river that went under ground hundreds of years ago, returned to the sur face, flooding homes built in the former riverbed. The water from all three of those creeks was trying to get to the river, Stevenson said. In 2004, when flood waters from Hurricane Frances and Hurricane Jean hit the area, the old river appeared again. Stevenson explained why the phenomenon occurred. The reason the old river seems to show up aboveground is because the underground river is not large enough to take that volume of water, he said. The caves and the springs are not large enough to let the aquifer drain rapidly. Stevenson said the Ichetucknee Trace went underground many years back as part of a normal geological process. The limerock beneath us is constantly erod ing, creating caves and sinkholes, he said. Its happened for ever and it will continue to happen forever. New sinkholes will always be opening up and in time the caves will steadily get larger. The Cody Scarp, an ancient marine shoreline, runs roughly adjacent to the Ichetucknee Trace in places. The ocean was up to that shoreline (in Columbia County) at one point in time, Stevenson said. The sinkholes that captured the creeks are on the edge of the Cody Scarp. Cannon Sink is right at the edge of the scarp and the sinks in Clay Hole Creek and Rose Sink are all at the edge of Cody Scarp. The reason is because there is a clay layer above the scarp to the north that protects the aquifer below. Once you drop off the scarp, there is no clay layer and the water can go straight down to the aquifer. According to geolo gists, the Cody Scarp is an ancient early Pleistocene shoreline formed up to 2.6 million years ago. The scarp separates the Red Hills Region of south west Georgia from the Gulf Coastal Lowlands of Floridas Big Bend. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY JULY 15, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 6A Mitt Romney I am a Christian Floridian and I plan to vote Nov. 6, 2012.

You feel very uncom fortable for that response but then again you cant do that if youre a city council member or a school board member, you cant be freez ing at a meeting or when a decision has to be made. Candidates will be inter viewed in groups by office. Each participant will be given two minutes for an opening statement and two minutes for a closing state ment. Editor Robert Bridges of the Lake City Reporter will interview the candidates on-air, asking the same questions of contenders in any given race. Candidates will then be given a max imum of two minutes to respond. The event will not be structured as a debate, so candidates will not be allowed additional time to rebut other candidates comments. The Lake City Reporter has been co-sponsor of this event for 20 years and Im pleased to be part of it, Bridges said. Its a great opportunity to see candi dates answer questions live and in full view of the elec torate. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dennille Decker called the forum one of our most anticipat ed events. It gives the public an opportunity to hear directly from candidates on where they stand on important issues, she said. This year, we think it will be even more meaningful with the addition of questions from the public. Chamber of Commerce government relations chairman Matt Vann said he looks forward to seeing candidates answer ques tions. Its exciting every year, Vann said. This year, theres a lot of local races. McKee said the event manages to get people more engaged in local poli tics. Voters can look at a written response, but to see someone squirm, and I dont mean that dis respectfully, but to see somebodys reaction to a question through a facial expression, theres a little bit of a difference, he said. The forums will air live at 7 p.m. on July 30, 31 and August 2 on Florida Gateway College Television (Comcast chan nel eight) and on 106.5 WCJX radio. Each event will be rebroadcast at various times until the election. Youll get plenty of chances to see it if you dont actually see the Monday, Tuesday or Thursday forum live, McKee said.

The Suwannee Valley Flood Jam is scheduled for Aug. 17 and 18 at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. The Jam will feature about a dozen bands playing on two stages over two days, said Steve Briscoe, owner of 1st Street Music & Sound Co. There will be food and craft vendors, camping, activities and a silent auction, on site and online. Organizers are still finaliz ing the music acts and admis sion price, but more details are expected to be hammered out by Tuesday or Wednesday, he said. All money raised during the event will go specifically to flood victims in the Suwannee Valley region, he said. United Way of the Suwannee Valley and Love INC, a Suwannee County coali tion of churches, will distribute the money, he said. Major artists from several genres are donating memorabilia for the auction, he said. In the music industry we have have some significant, major players supporting us and getting behind us, Briscoe said. However, to raise as much money as possible, organizers are asking residents for auction donations. We are looking for anything that will sell in an auc tion. Well take anything, he said. The group is working with Florida Gateway College to broadcast the festivities on their local station as well. With just a month to go, Briscoe said the Jam has a strong team working to pull off the major event. Briscoe said even with FEMA in the area offering help, there are still going to be individuals who slip through the cracks. The Jams goal is to reach out and fill those voids, he said. In times of tragedy or disaster, folks in North Central Florida have always stepped up to help their neighbor, Briscoe said. To donate auction items call 758-0959 or 755-2060. A dozen bands set to perform at Flood Jam Edna and Paul Lloyd talk to Kenneth Witt Saturday evening at Witts annual peanut boil at his home on Southeast County Road 349. Witt, a former county commissioner, said he has hosted the peanut boil for more than 30 years as a way to give back to the community. The Lords been good to us and the community has been good to us, Witt said. Edna Lloyd said the evening was a chance to see good friends and meet many political candidates. Upwards of 500 people streamed in throughout the evening to enjoy the company, live music, sweets and 12 bushels of peanuts. LAURA HAMPSON/ Lake City Reporter Peanut boil

Most of the county has between 10 and 20 inches of extra rain, based on yearly aver ages. There were significant improvements in many areas of the district and those improvements are on-going, said Megan Wetherington, district senior professional engi neer. Other areas did not recover greatly due to the severity of the drought. District Executive Director Ann Shortelle said it is premature for the district to lift a shortage order that was declared just weeks before the arrival of the tropical storms. The shortage order remains in effect through Sept. 30. House addresses ending in 0 or 1 may only irrigate on Monday, ending in 2 or 3 may water on Tuesday, ending in 4 or 5 may water on Wednesday, ending in 6 or 7 may water on Thursday and ending in 8 or 9 may water on Friday. We certainly under stand that in our flooded counties, water conserva tion may be the furthest thing from most peoples minds, Shortelle said. But in other regions of the district groundwater levels remain low and we should all remember that water conservation is vital to protecting our water resources. District staff will contin ue to monitor conditions until long-term effects of the tropical storms are evaluated and then make recommendations about the water shortage, she said. In the 36 days between May 26 and June 30 when Beryl and Debby hit the area a portion of Suwannee and Lafayette counties received up to 48 inches, almost a typical years amount of rain. The majority of rainfall fell in the central areas of the district. Portions of Suwannee, Columbia, and Lafayette counties received up to 33 inches in June. The coastal and outlying areas in the district received as little as 9 inches for the month. The Suwannee River at White Springs crested Thursday, June 28 at nearly 85.3 feet, its third highest crest since gaging began in 1906 and close to the secondhighest crest in April 1984, according to the report. Farther down the Suwannee flooding severity decreased, Wetherington said. The fourth highest flow since 1927 was recorded last month on the Santa Fe River at Fort White. River levels should stay up through the summer, Wetherington said. The area will see higher and clearer spring flows once the rivers drop to normal levels. The three-month out look issued by the Climate Prediction Center calls for above-normal precipitation and temperatures through September. *See Players Club for complete details.

Williams believes key to Lady TigersÂ’ future in summer.Champions & showcase By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comThe future of Columbia High softball is bright according to head coach Jimmy Williams. A summer softball schedule that included playing teams from all over the state and the Gold Diamond College Showcase in Kissimmee proved just that. The Columbia Sliders lost only three games this summer while compiling a 25-3 record. When it was all said and done the Sliders had won four tournaments includ-ing the USSSA North State tournament to close out the summer. The State tournament was a two seed, then dou-ble elimination with eleven teams in the 18U/HS divi-sion. Columbia went unde-feated six wins over the weekend. The Sliders won their two seed games over the Sandalwood Legends 7-6 and The Lady Renegades 8-1. Jessica Shimmel had four hits including a home run a double and also drove in four runs. Hollianne Dohrn and Lacey King provided two more hits each for the sliders while Kaitlin Hill, Caleigh McCaulley and Leslie Rosonet each added singles in the contest. In the first Elimination Bracket game on July 17, the No. 4 seed Sliders sent the Jacksonville Storm to the losers bracket with a 5-1 victory. Hope Smith led the charge this time with three hits in the game. Shimmel contin-ued to shine at the plate as well. This time Shimmel finished with two hits for her third multiple-hit game of the tournament. Brittany Morgan also finished with two hits in the contest. The semifinals pitted Columbia against the Legends after already defeating the team once in the seeding round by one run. Again, the margin would be the same as Columbia picked up a 1-0 win against the Legends. Dohrn provided the game-winning RBI in the very first inning as she hit a sacrifice fly that allowed Lauren Eaker to score. Eaker also made a defensive play to preserve the 1-0 win with the bases loaded to end a rally late in the game and keep the score at 1-0 so that Ashley Shoup could finish the game with a shutout. It was the first of two shutouts for Shoup on the day. The championship game of the winners bracket came down to a Texas tiebreaker with the Sliders picking up a narrow 4-3 win. With the game tied 1-1, the teams went into extra innings with the Jacksonville Alliance strik-ing first with two runs. Columbia topped the Alliance with three runs to in the bottom half of the inning to pick up a 4-3 win. Â“Leslie Rosonet and Lacey King had key hits in the tiebreaker to make Columbia the only unbeaten team left in the tourna-ment,Â” Williams said. The Alliance beat the Florida Futures in a tie-breaker to return to the championship game. This time, the Sliders would jump out to an early 4-0 lead behind King, Eaker Shimmel, McCaulley and Brittany MorganÂ’s offense. It allowed the girls to cruise and claim the USSSA North State 18U/HS State Championship. Â“After winning 4 state titles and 3 State Tournament MVPÂ’s, this summer has to go down as one of my favor-ite,Â” Williams said. Â“Twice we were down five runs in Championship games and came back to win. We won all the one run games and put together an 11 game winning streak and finished the season with an 8 game winning streak. The cham-pionship game felt like a home game as the crowd to watch the girls play was huge.Â” Williams said the team found away to come togeth-er after its first setback. Â“After losing our very first game of the year, the team really came togeth-er,Â” he said. Â“They had the greatest assest, which was team chemistry. We had all the players not worried about themselves or when or where they played. It was always about what is best for the team and that is what a championship team is all about.Â” Williams said they bought into the coaching. Â“They really began to understand the importance of getting all the outs,Â” he said. Â“They knew to have quality at-bats, stay away from stike outs and focus-ing on hitting ground balls to score runs.Â” In the end, he said it will only make the Lady Tigers better. Â“When players, parents and coaches commit to the summer program, it not only builds chemistry, it instills continuity and it puts us ahead of the learn-ing curve next season,Â” Williams said.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comMore than 40 college recruiters showed up over the weekend to the Southside Recreational Complex in Lake City to witness the Jacksonville Storm Softball AssociationÂ’s Summer Showcase. The event offers potential college players a chance to be seen by coaches and scouts with the hopes of earning a scholarship. Â“WeÂ’re looking to see how each player would fit into our program,Â” said Ed Yanez, head coach of Brevard Community College. Â“The talent is good and itÂ’s deep depending on the position youÂ’re looking at.Â” Columbia County Tourist Development Council executive director Harvey Campbell helped organize the tournament and said the feedback has been tremendous. Â“The scouts are impressed,Â” he said. Â“There are no weak sisters here. All of the players are extremely talented. When itÂ’s all said and done, there will be some that receive more attention than others, but the scouts really appreciate the location, especially those from out of state. EveryoneÂ’s pleased with the improvement to the facilities.Â” There were 94 teams with a countless number of players each trying to earn one scholarship. Columbia High coach Jimmy Williams had a few of his Lady Tigers playing in the tournament as well including Hollianne Dohrn, Erin Anderson, Taylor Douglass and Jessica Keene. The point for the graduating seniors was to stay in shape for the upcoming college season despite already having a scholarship. Fort WhiteÂ’s Ali Wrench also competed in the showcase. Â“ItÂ’s just another opportunity for these girls to be seen by college coaches,Â” Williams said. Â“ItÂ’s another networking tool for these players so that they might have a chance to pick up a college scholarship.Â” When it comes down to it, the difference in most players isnÂ’t much according to Yanez. Â“Most kids will still need time to develop,Â” he said. Â“The biggest thing to seperate players will be strength and knowledge.Â” Mickelson relishing links test at OpenBy STEVE DOUGLASAssociated PressINVERNESS, Scotland Â— If the wind is howling and the rainÂ’s pouring dur-ing the British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, expect Phil Mickelson to be wearing a broad grin on his face. By his own admission, Mickelson has started to embrace the challenge of being a Â“bad-weather play-er.Â” It makes the British Open the ideal tournament for the American. Mickelson says Â“I donÂ’t know where that happened along the way, whether it was last year or whether it was five, 10 years ago.Â” But he says he started Â“to really enjoy the tough weather conditions and I hope that itÂ’s that way next week, too.Â” The good news for Mickelson is that the long-range forecast is for BritainÂ’s terrible weather of late to continue into next week. Mickelson tied for second behind Darren Clarke at Royal St. GeorgeÂ’s at the 2011 British Open, his best finish at the yearÂ’s third major. That tournament was beset by rain and gust-ing winds off the south-west coast, forcing play-ers to don oven-style mitts between shots and huddle under flapping umbrellas at times. The extreme conditions were too much for then-U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, who slumped away from a soggy Sandwich bemoaning his luck at play-ing successive rounds in the worst of the weather and saying Â“thereÂ’s no point in changing your game for one week a year.Â” ThatÂ’s exactly what Mickelson has done. Well, maybe two weeks a year if you count his regular appearances at the Scottish Open, the precursor to the Golfer looks to regain form in yearÂ’s third major. OPEN continued on 4B

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 15, 2012 OPEN: Mickelson looks for claret jug Continued From Page 1B British Open. He is there again this week, displaying his rep ertoire of links-style shots. The wind wasnt hostile for a change but he was prepar ing for next week nonethe less. Some of his low irons on the par 5s and long par 4s were driven no more than head-high. He also produced some neat bumpand-run approach shots across the undulating links fairways. He shot an 8-under 64 in the second round to put him in contention for the weekend and was clearly in his element, despite his poor play in his last three tournaments where he failed to break par or 70 in seven rounds. My mindset has really evolved a lot over the last decade or two, Mickelson said. Ive learned to get the ball on the ground quick and thats made playing in the bad weather so much easier because the ground then affects the ball, as opposed to the air. That makes it easier to not have the misses be so big. So Ive really enjoyed learning a few shots off the tee. The last British Open at Royal Lytham was in 2001. It was won by David Duval and Mickelson tied for 30th. I thought it was a won derful course, the 16thranked Mickelson said. It was a tough driving course, there were a lot of irons off the tee and a lot of bunkers to avoid. A couple of years later, he and coach Dave Pelz started really tackling how best to deal with the condi tions so often seen on links courses and so rarely seen on American-style parkland courses. We spent some time working on some low shots, working on a couple of dif ferent tee shots to get the ball on the ground and to get the ball in play, he said. Consequently, I have not been having as big misses off the tee as I had earlier in my career where I was play ing the ball through the air and letting the crosswinds take it. Mickelson demonstrated his intention to finally get his hands on the claret jug and win the fifth major of his illustrious career by cutting short a family vaca tion in Italy this week to play in the Scottish Open and attempt to shake off some rust. If the weather turns sour in northern England next week, it may prove an inspired move. Florida senior TJ Vogel wins US Amateur Publinks Associated Press MIDWAY, Utah T.J. Vogel made six bird ies over a seven-hole stretch Saturday, coasting to a 12-and-10 win over Kevin Aylwin at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. With the victory, the University of Florida senior earned a spot in the 2013 Masters. Vogel seized control during the first 18 holes played in the morning, with birdies on the sec ond and fourth to go 3 up. Aylwin bogeyed the first, sixth and eighth to drop back even further. After going 5 up on the front nine, Vogel unleashed a flurry after the turn with birdies on the 12th, 13th and 14th holes. He closed with another three in a row to move 10 up after the morning session of match play. A rainstorm at the start of the afternoon session did little to halt Vogels momen tum. Fittingly, he clinched the win with another birdie on the eighth hole. Molinari leads after day 3 of Scottish Open INVERNESS, Scotland Francesco Molinari held off a barrage of challeng ers at the Scottish Open by shooting a bogey-free 5-under 67 to take a onestroke lead into Sundays final round. The Italian, who held the overnight lead with Alexander Noren, remained consistent in changing weather around the Castle Stuart links on Saturday to stay in front at 17 under. Anders Hansen of Denmark trails Molinari after shooting a 65. Soren Kjeldsen and Marc Warren, who holed an amazing 80-foot putt for eagle on No. 16, are two strokes behind Molinari after 64s the lowest rounds of the day along with Martin Laird. Hansen upstaged his top-ranked playing partner Luke Donald (68), while Phil Mickelson also had a 65 to join three others trailing the leader by three shots Noren was among that quartet the Swede had been keeping pace with Molinari until making a triple-bogey 8 on No. 12. He lost his ball in bushes off the tee, and finished with a 70.

The Scorpions won all three of their games during the Brunswick Invitational to be crowned champions. Columbia opened with a 16-2 win against the Diamond Demons out of Georgia and took on the Effingham Legends in their second game. The Scorpions dusted off the Legends, 11-4, to reach the championship game. The Legends advanced back up the LoserÂ’s Bracket to take on Columbia in the championship game and against the Scorpions were victorious. This time, Columbia won 11-4. John Ledew pitched eight innings for the Scorpions throughout the tournament giving up only one earned run. Tyler Morgan pitched five innings and gave up two runs. Jordan Culp and Garrett Finnell each pitched in relief without giving up a run. Â“Everyone hit spectacularly and we had some nice defensive plays, especially a diving catch where Dylan Stalter laid out to make the grab,Â” Brinkley said. The Scorpions travel to Waycross, Ga. this week. Brees agrees to $100 million dealBy BRETT MARTELAssociated PressNEW ORLEANS Â— Drew Brees and the Saints reached a deal on par with the quarterbackÂ’s record-setting play, giving New OrleansÂ’ fans some news they can celebrate after an offseason rife with tur-moil. The team announced Friday that it had agreed to a five-year contract with Brees. A person familiar with the deal said itÂ’s for $100 million, with $60 mil-lion guaranteed. The deal will also pay the quarterback $40 mil-lion the first year, the per-son told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial details had not been pub-licly announced. Brees posted a note on his Twitter page reading, Â“Deal is Done! Love you, Who Dat Nation. See you soon!Â” He had been tagged as the SaintsÂ’ exclusive fran-chise player and could not negotiate with other teams. Had a deal not been reached, the tender for a quarterback was worth $16.3 million. Brees would have had to play for that amount or hold out for a better one-year deal, which would have left his long-term future in New Orleans uncertain. Brees skipped the SaintsÂ’ offseason practices while holding out for his new long-term contract, which now gives him the highest average annual pay ($20 million) in NFL history. Buffalo defensive end Mario Williams also has a $100 million con-tract, but for six years. Now Brees is set to report for the opening of Saints training camp on July 24, a needed dose of good news for a club whose offseason has been plagued by the bounty scandal that resulted in the season-long suspen-sions of coach Sean Payton and linebacker Jonathan Vilma, among other sanc-tions. Â“What Drew has accomplished in his time with the Saints, he deserves to be the highest paid player in the league,Â” Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said. Edwards proposes driver-financed drug testingBy HOWARD ULMANAssociated PressLOUDON, N.H. Â— Carl Edwards wants drivers to pay for a drug testing sys-tem to help avoid mistakes that he said could occur under the program oper-ated by NASCAR that led to the suspension of AJ Allmendinger. Â“ItÂ’s an imperfect world. People are imperfect. Tests are imperfect,Â” last yearÂ’s Sprint Cup runner-up said Friday before quali-fying for SundayÂ’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Â“We need to have our own group that is paid by us, that works for us, to be here in tandem with the NASCAR drug testers and have them test us at the same time. Â“I donÂ’t think it would be a contentious thing. I think that would remove almost all doubt in any situation of a positive test.Â” He called NASCARÂ’s approach Â“very admirableÂ” in trying to keep the sport clean but Â“thereÂ’s one more layer that we could put on it. ... You donÂ’t want to con-vict a guy of something he didnÂ’t do.Â” But Brad Keselowski, a teammate of Allmendinger, criticized EdwardsÂ’ pro-posal. Â“I donÂ’t think we need more politics involved in the sport and thatÂ’s what (testing) groups like that bring in,Â” Keselowski said. He doesnÂ’t think drivers should be allowed to take any supplements, not even Â“FlintstoneÂ” vitamins. Permitting some of them leaves a gray area of what should and shouldnÂ’t be allowed, he said. Â“I donÂ’t think there needs to be any committee that approves drugs or supple-ments or whatever it is,Â” he said. Â“I just think you shouldnÂ’t be allowed to take anything. You should just man up and drive the damn race car.Â” Allmendinger was suspended about 90 min-utes before last Saturday nightÂ’s race at Daytona International Speedway after his Â“AÂ” urine sample taken the previous week-end at Kentucky Speedway came back positive. He has requested that his Â“BÂ” sam-ple be tested and plans to have his toxicologist pres-ent when that is done, prob-ably next week. Even if that test is negative, AllmendingerÂ’s future in the sport is in danger, Keselowski said. Â“It doesnÂ’t make a difference. ItÂ’s still a death sentence,Â” he said. Â“Within this sport, we rely on sponsors and reputation.Â” Allmendinger, 22nd in the Sprint Cup standings, test-ed positive for a stimulant, according to a statement Wednesday by his business manager. NASCAR has a policy of not identifying the substance. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and other drivers expressed strong faith in the current testing policy, begun in 2009. Â“IÂ’m certain that as big and structured an orga-nization as NASCAR is and the agency they have that works with them on their drug program, they canÂ’t make any mistakes,Â” Earnhardt said. Â“They canÂ’t afford to make any mis-takes. I assume, although I donÂ’t have any answers or donÂ’t know anything about this particular incident, I have to believe that theyÂ’re making the right calls and the right choices.Â” Sprint Cup points leader Matt Kenseth also support-ed the system being used but said he was withholding judgment on Allmendinger until the Â“BÂ” sample results are known. Â“They did a lot of things when they put that system in place to make it as fair as they can,Â” he said. Â“I believe that NASCAR is going to err on the side of cau-tion. I think theyÂ’re going to be pretty darn careful before they do something that could really jeopardize somebodyÂ’s career .So IÂ’d have a hard time believing that itÂ’s not pretty rock solid or I donÂ’t think NASCAR would have reacted liked that.Â” Sam Hornish Jr., replaced Allmendinger in the Daytona race and will drive again on Sunday. Â“ItÂ’s an unfortunate situation for everybody here because it just takes away from the program as a whole because everybody is focused on something that is not productive for us,Â” he said. Several drivers had questions. Why did NASCAR wait until just before a race to suspend a driver for a test taken nearly a week ear-lier? Â“I donÂ’t necessarily understand 100 percent the timing of why that takes so long,Â” Kevin Harvick said. Â“It seemed like an odd situ-ation to be right before the race.Â” And just what is the banned substance found in AllmendingerÂ’s Â“AÂ” sam-ple? Â“WeÂ’ve got to wait to hear more results. I hope we get a full story,Â” Jeff Gordon said. Â“You certainly like to know what it is ... what could have caused it.Â” ASSOCIATED PRESSNASCAR driver Carl Edwards runs through the garage ar ea before practice for SundayÂ’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race at New Hampshire Mo tor Speedway in Loudon, N.H on Friday.

Losses on Friday and Saturday sent the Indians home short of their goal, however, after being knocked out by Palatka in a 5-4 contest on Saturday morning. Fort White had won the Small League State Tournament in its home town last week. Fort White fell into the losers bracket on Friday morning, as Julington Creek won its second one-run game in a row, 3-2. Julington Creek scored one run in the first inning and added two more in the third inning. Fort White scored its two runs in the bottom of the fifth. Raymond Barber led off the fifth inning for Fort White with a double. Alex Mitchell squared to bunt and was hit on the helmet. Barber was caught on a pick-off but made it safely to third base as Mitchell took second. Rhett Willis followed with an RBI-single and Tyler Wendel executed a squeeze bunt to score Mitchell. Fort Whites Kyle Sharpe singled with one out in the sixth inning, but was forced at second on a ball hit to the right fielder by J.J. Cohrs. Cohrs was cut down on a steal attempt and Julington Creek pitcher Joe Hoelle closed the door in the bottom of the seventh inning. Hoelle went the distance with five hits, two earned runs, two walks and five strikeouts. Zack Smith led off the game with a single for Julington Creek and Patrick Tybor double him home. In the third inning, Tybor singled with one out and stole second. Hoelle walked and Jacob Emerson had an infield single as shortstop Willis made a diving stop to save the run. Trevor Handley delivered a twoout single to score two runs. Fort White starter Wendel worked out of lead-off singles by Cole Chouinard in the fourth inning and Hoelle in the fifth. Wendel went five innings with seven hits, three runs, four walks and two strikeouts. Cohrs relieved in the sixth inning and gave up a walk, sacrifice bunt, single by Smith and hit a batter to load the bases. Willis took the mound and Tybor hit a ground shot up the middle. Wendel snared it behind second and flipped to Mitchell who fired to Austin Dupree at first for the double play to keep the deficit at one run. Willis (1 2 3 innings, one strikeout) pitched a perfect seventh inning, but Hoelle matched it in the bottom of the inning. Willis had a leadoff double in the third inning to go with his RBIsingle. He walked in the first inning and reached second on a pick-off error. Dupree walked to lead off the second inning and Cohrs had a high-hop single to shortstop with one out. The runners pulled a double steal but were left on the bases. On Saturday, the Indians werent able to bounce back from being put in the Losers Bracket despite fine performances from some of Fort Whites players. Cohrs led the team in the 5-4 loss to Palatka with a 2-for-3 day at the plate that included a double. Cohrs also scored one of the Indians runs. Two other players for Fort White ended the game with doubles including Willis and Willie Carter. Harrington and Raymond Barber each had a hit in the contest. Y OU CANT ALWAYS HIDE FROM THE SUN.

The Fort White High School FFA chapter won $5,000 by submitting an extensive experiment that evaluated irriga-tion and fertilizer Best Management Practices. The students achieved their results through a team approach and exten-sive study of the Nutrients for Life curriculum, Nourishing the Planet in the 21st Century. By working with their community, Florida Farm Bureau, University of Florida IFAS Extension and Potash Corp. Â— White Springs, the students were successful in develop-ing a technical base for the experimental design, implementation and con-clusion of their project. The studentsÂ’ summary and conclusions support-ing the value of best management practices and crop nutrients were based on the sound sci-ence of their experiments. The chapter presented outreach programs based on their experiment results to the local commu-nity regarding sustainable practices for agriculture and gardening involving responsible use of plant nutrients and water. Wayne Oelfke, a Fort White High School FFA advisor along with Jill Huesman, said 58 Fort White High School FFA students participated in the project. Â“This project really has a lot of ramifications as far as the concept of the program alone,Â” he said. Â“Some of the things we look at is if we have a problem here. Our area is a highly sensitive envi-ronmental area. WeÂ’re all concerned about our water use, water management and nutrients getting into the water system. I think programs like this direct our scope and help young people understand human energy and food fiber for our future.Â” He said the program focused on feeding the next generation. Â“As far as a project, agriculture produces the most important energy source of all, sustaining the human population,Â” Oelfke said, noting the program allowed the students to focus on growing locally and the importance of using water supplies wise-ly. Â“The kids did research by using drip irrigation and different pre-plant fer-tilizers along with fertiga-tion, where the fertilizer is injected through the drip line.Â” The students laid the entire garden out, con-structed the irrigation system, planted the garden and measured the amount of fertilizer and water used. A taste test was done at the end of the project. The students applied different amounts of fertilizers versus differ-ent amounts of water on the plants, harvested the plants and weighed them. Another experiment, using food grade blue dye with the same molecular weight as nitrogen, was also performed. The dye was put on top of the soil and water was put on the dye for 45 minutes. The dye went into the soil at different depths depending on time and the amount of water, allowing the stu-dents to determine how long the drip irrigation system should run before nitrogen starts leaching below the plant root zone. Â“It was a pretty extensive research project,Â” Oelfke said. Â“They got their data and there is quite a conclusion.Â” Oelfke said the project addressed the problems of water usage and the use of fertilizers. Â“Not only did the kids learn something, they made a contribution to the community,Â” he said. The students also worked with the Christian Service Center and off the small plot of land, they produced more than 1,800 pounds of mustard greens and donated them to Christian Service Center. Oelfke said more than 50 families had fresh veg-etables from the greens for more than a week. Oelfke said help on the project also came from the Fort White librarian, the master gardeners pro-gram, Suwannee Valley Agriculture Extension Service, the Christian Service Center and others. Â“We had a lot of people who wanted to help,Â” he said. Â“It wouldnÂ’t have hap-pened without the commu-nity support. It was a com-munity project. I thank the FFA for having the vision of promoting the idea of solving problems and help-ing your community.Â”Fort White FFA wins grant money COURTESY PHOTOSTOP: At the end of the experiment, the greens were harvested.

By DAVID GERMAINAP Movie WriterSAN DIEGO Â— Back in the day, Tim Burton remembers critics finding his take on Batman rather gloomy. BurtonÂ’s Dark Knight looked as though he was having fun in the sun compared to where the current Batman series has taken the comic-book vigilante on the big-screen. Â“I recall at the time, people worried about our version being too dark,Â” Burton said of his 1989 Â“BatmanÂ” and the 1992 sequel Â“Batman Returns.Â” Â‘Â’ItÂ’s like, well, it looks like a lighthearted romp in comparison. Â‘Batman on Ice.Â’Â” Opening next week, Â“The Dark Knight RisesÂ” wraps up director Christopher NolanÂ’s trilogy that launched with 2005Â’s Â“Batman BeginsÂ” and continued with 2008Â’s Â“The Dark Knight.Â” Nolan elevated the superhero genre to grand proportions, with Christian BaleÂ’s Batman becoming a haunted wreck and a hunted fugitive unjustly condemned by the city which he gave his all to protect. BurtonÂ’s Batman, played by Michael Keaton, was a dark soul, too, but the films had a levity and a campier quality that has diminished as todayÂ’s stream of super-hero flicks take their idols and action more seriously.

Update on bed tax collections and occupancy ratesAccording to the Florida Department of Revenue, Local Option Tourist Development Tax (bed tax) collections were down for the month of April. Collections for the month were $51,128, compared to $54,966 in April of 2011, a decrease of just over $3,800. This is the first time collections were down compared to year-ago numbers since July of 2011. Meanwhile, Smith Travel Reports showed that occupancy rates in Columbia County were up 17.8% for May, compared to the same month in 2011. Average Daily Rate (ADR) was up slightly, 1.1% to $69.75 and total room rev-enues increased 15.3% and rooms sold for the month was up 14.1% compared to 2011 numbers.Marketing Expo was postponed and will be re-scheduledThe Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group had planned to host its second annual Marketing Expo on Wednesday, June 27, at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. However, due to the torrential rains on Monday & Tuesday, June 25-26, a decision was made to postpone the event. The Expo will be re-scheduled for late summer or early fall. Information will be forthcoming in the next 45 days. Upcoming tourism meetingsThe Columbia County Tourist Development Council (TDC) will hold its regular monthly meet-ing on Wednesday, July 18, 12 Noon, in the Westside Branch of the Columbia County Public Library. The meetings are open to the public and you are cordial-ly invited to attend. Items expected to be discussed includes an update on proposed improvements to the Southside Recreation Complex, a proposal to increase the Local Option Tourist Development Tax from 3% to 4% to pay for the TDCÂ’s portion of the improvements at the sports complex. The board will consider how to pro-ceed with an opening on the TDC board and discus-sion is expected to be held about whether to continue obtaining sponsors to aug-ment TDC funds for main-tenance on the median islands near the I-75 and U.S. 90 interchange. In addition, be aware of the Disaster Recovery Center located in Suite 145 at the Westfield Square Shopping Center. You are encouraged to have those who are planning to apply for either grant or loan assistance to pre-register with FEMA by calling 1-800-621-FEMA.

Sorry, we canÂ’t provide individual financial advice (EDITORS: For editorial questions, contact Alan McDermott at firstname.lastname@example.org.)A Puzzle SolvedQHow can a companyÂ’s earn-ings per share rise when its earnings donÂ’t grow? Â— S.S., Portland, MaineAIt happens when the share count shrinks. Imagine that Bright Idea Light Bulbs (ticker: UREKA) has 10 million shares outstanding and earns $50 mil-lion in a quarter. Its earnings per share (EPS) is $5. If it buys back a million shares and then earns $50 million again in the next quarter, its EPS has suddenly risen to $5.56 (50 million divided by 9 million equals 5.56). Share buybacks can be good, making remaining shares worth more Â— as long as they donÂ’t happen when the stock price is overvalued. ***QCan you have too many shares of one stock in your portfolio? Â— C.F., Manteo, N.C.AThink in terms of total value, not number of shares. You might have 1,000 shares of one stock, worth a total of $3,000, and 100 shares of another stock, worth $7,000. Focus on the per-centage of your portfolio that each stock represents. DonÂ’t let any stockÂ’s percentage get too high, either. If one holding represents 25 percent of your entire portfolio, for example, thatÂ’s very risky. If the stock plunges, your portfolio will take a big hit. If one holding grows into too big a chunk of your portfolio, consider selling some shares. If you hold too many stocks, though, and your biggest holding represents just 2 percent of your portfolio, thatÂ’s not ideal, either. If that stock doubles or triples, its overall effect will be small. For most people, roughly 10 to 20 stocks is a good number of holdings to aim for. You want some diversification, but you donÂ’t want more companies than you can follow.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in Â— see Write to Us =ffcjJZ_ffc Avoid These 401(k) MistakesWith fewer companies than ever offering pensions, 401(k)s are a crit-ical retirement tool. Make the most of them by avoiding these mistakes: (1) Failing to grab your maximum employer match ThatÂ’s free money, providing an immediate, risk-free return. Try to top that, too. Many of us should sock away much more than 10 percent of our income for retirement. (2) Borrowing from your 401(k) for something other than an emergency DonÂ’t put your future in jeopardy to remodel your kitchen. DonÂ’t cash out after a job change, either. Leave your money in your former employerÂ’s plan, or roll the balance into your new employerÂ’s plan or an IRA. (3) Trying to time the market DonÂ’t jump from one investment to another, chasing Â“hotÂ” sectors. Have conviction in a strategy and stick with it.

Â“ItÂ’s like a folk tale or fairy tale. You can kind of revisit things and show things in a different way.Â” Burton, whose biggest commercial success began a decade after his Batman movies with such block-busters as Â“Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryÂ” and Â“Alice in Wonderland,Â” is revisiting one of his own early stories with Â“Frankenweenie.Â” The tale of a boy who resurrects his dead dog, Frankenstein-style, started at a live-action short film Burton directed in 1984. He has expanded on the story to create a feature-length black-and-white update using stop-motion animation, in which pup-pets are moved and photo-graphed meticulously one frame at a time. Â“I felt quite grateful that I got to do the original in live action, because I was, A., a bad animator, and B., not very communicative, so it really forced me to talk,Â” said Burton, whose Â“FrankenweenieÂ” voice cast includes past col-laborators such as Winona Ryder, Martin Landau, Catherine OÂ’Hara and Martin Short. Â“If IÂ’d done stop-motion at the time, which I donÂ’t think would have happened, I probably wouldnÂ’t have been able to move into live-action like I did.Â” Â“So all these years later, to come back and to do it in I think its more pure form, stop-motion, exploring other kids, other monsters, weird teachers, things related to the story that were kind of rattling around, made it feel like it was a new thing. I didnÂ’t feel like I was just revisit-ing something. It felt like it was a whole new project.Â” BATMAN: Burton revisiting one of his earlier stories with n ew film Continued From Page 1C

D rought is a term that means a lack of rain over an extended period of time. Water stress can have different effects on trees, depend-ing on the tolerance of the species. The leaves of hardwood trees may wilt, curl, turn brown on the edges, or fall off. The last few years have not been the best growing years in terms of water and water stress for many trees. Now many of our trees are experiencing extended flooding conditions. Plants may be in flooded areas or in soil that is saturated with water. In either case, the normal air spaces in the soil have been replaced with water. Good grow-ing soil is usually up to 25 percent air spaces that provide needed oxygen to plant roots and other soil organisms. Without oxy-gen, tree roots cannot take up water, so you may see the same effects on trees during extended flooding that you would see during drought. And what you donÂ’t see below ground would be small dying roots. Some trees are well adapted to flooding and have lived long lives despite hundreds of years with extreme weather events. The bald cypress grows Â‘kneesÂ’ above the soil from which it can obtain oxygen when the surroundings are waterlogged. Water tupelo, green and white ash, pecan, persimmon, sweet-gum, sycamore, red maple and hackberry are some trees that are very adapted to extended flooding. Some trees that are unable to survive more than a few days without problems are flowering dogwood, loblolly pine, black cherry, blackjack oak, Shumard oak, post oak, and sassafras. After three or four weeks in waterlogged or flooded conditions, birch, winged elm, water oak, white and southern red oak may become stressed. Keep in mind that these trees may exhibit signs now, next year, in five years, or maybe never. The impor-tant thing is to give them care and attention for the next few years. Water molds, including Phytopthora and Pythium, are fungi that can attack trees when the soil is very wet. These can cause the roots or crown to rot and decay. Another group of fungi that attacks stressed or weakened trees causes cankers to develop. Can-kers are areas of dead and discolored bark. There are so many factors involved with flooding that specific ques-tions about how a tree will respond cannot be answered. The best recom-mendation is to keep your trees from experiencing additional stress. Remove cankered branches as soon as possible but wait until LIFE Sunday, July 15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter1DLIFEBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comGood Samaritans and quick actions are how local officials get animals out of hot cars, when just min-utes can mean death. Local animal control officials have responded to three calls about pets in hot cars this summer, which is less than normal, said Terry Markques, executive director of the Lake City Humane Society. However, FloridaÂ’s brutal summer heat is far from over. Across the county more calls are coming in about overheated dogs Â— and officials say thatÂ’s a good thing, because more people are aware of the problem and calling before itÂ’s too late. Still, despite annual warnings, pets continue to die or suffer serious injury in hot cars. Before sum-mer was even two days old this year, The Associated Press reported the deaths of five dogs in hot cars in Oregon, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. In Arizona a drugsniffing dog for the Department of Public Safety was euthanized after authorities say the dog was left unattended in a hot squad car for more than an hour. No one keeps tabs on annual deaths or injuries because so many differ-ent agencies handle calls. But some agencies say calls have increased to 911, police departments, fire departments, animal control officers, shelters or veterinarians. People running errands are the most common offenders, Markques said. Studies show that the temperature in a car Â— even on a mild day Â— can go up 34 degrees in just 30 minutes. For example, a car parked in the shade on an 85 degree day can heat up to 120 degrees in a half hour, Markques said. Often itÂ’s more of a crime of negligence than malice, because pet own-ers think animals will be fine for a few minutes with the windows cracked, he said. Â“ThatÂ’s just not the case particularly with these brutally hot summers,Â” Markques said. Dogs sweat from the glands around their foot pads and pant to cool themselves down, he said. If a dog is only breathing in hot air, its body can very quickly become overheated, Markques said. Dogs can die within six minutes of heatstroke, he said. Heatstroke affects every organ in the body, said Dr. Ben Brainard, an associ-ate professor of critical care who helps run the emergency room for the University of GeorgiaÂ’s College of Veterinary Medicine. As a dog begins to get hot, it will become anx-ious, agitated and start pacing, Brainard said, which heats the dog even more. Then the dog will start drooling, maybe frothing at the mouth, vomiting and defecating, the veterinarian said. As the heat starts to affect the dogÂ’s brain, it will stumble, lose its balance and have trouble standing. It will then collapse, and finally lose consciousness, Brainard said. Typically when a dog is left in a car unattended, a by-passer notices the ani-mal and contacts authori-ties, Markques said. If the air conditioner is not running, humane society staff will determine if the dog is in immedi-ate distress. If so, they will contact police before breaking a window to retrieve the animal, he said. If the animal is not in immediate danger, staff will try to locate the owner, who is often inside a store or business. Officers can write a citation for animal cruelty or neglect for up to $500, he said. One of the best tools to come along is the tem-perature gun, which can measure the temperature from outside the car. In Los Angeles, animal con-trol officers use them and police hope to get them soon to help prosecute dog owners when the cops or animal control arrive too late. However, the Lake City Humane Society doesnÂ’t own a temperature gun, Markques said. With the cases this year, human society staff was able to get to the owners in time and convey how careless it is to leave the dog in the car, Markques said. An overheated dog should be taken to a cool place as soon as possible and given water, he said. If the dog is non-responsive it should be taken to a vet. Even animals left outside can suffer from heat-stroke, especially dogs bred for colder environ-ments, he said. While outside, dogs need a shady, ventilated area and plenty of fresh, cool water, he said. A bowl of water should be refreshed often as it can heat up quickly in the sun and not provide much relief for an animal, Markques said. Â“Fresh water is essential for dogs,Â” he said. For safety reasons, and for love and companion-ship animals need, the human society always recommends keeping cats and dogs inside, he said. Â“We are big advocates of keeping dogs inside with the family,Â” he said.Summer heat can be deadly for pets Associated PressLos Angeles Police Officer Jim Cherrette holding a temp erature record stick in Los Angeles to demonstrate how hot a closed car can get. O ur first column appeared in the Lake City Reporter on Sept. 25, 2011. Hard to believe that it has almost been a year of our reviews. We thought it might be appropriate to use the column this week to cover Odds and Ends that you might find interesting. First of all, we want to say a big Â“Thank YouÂ” to all of you that have offered us so many words of encouragement and indica-tions that you really enjoy reading about our local restaurants. Total strang-ers come up to us and say that they look forward to our reviews. We donÂ’t go many places that someone doesnÂ’t say something nice and we totally appreciate all of the support. Our goal is to keep informing you of our eating adven-tures in a way that you can make new choices or rekindle your thoughts about the old tried and true restaurants. We are often asked questions about the review process, so we would like to address some of the more common ones asked.1. Do the restaurants know you are doing a review when you eat there? No, we have always been two that like to meet friends and family and eat out. So, this is not an uncommon thing for us. On a couple of occa-sions, usually out of town reviews, we have told the owners that we are doing a review but always after we have had our meal. We just want more personal infor-mation to share when it is an unknown spot we like and want you to try.2. Do we get paid to do this? No, we approached the Lake City Reporter and presented our ideas and then explained the best part of our plan was that we would do it for free. We pay for all our own meals and have never accepted any type of comp for our reviews.3. Why did we want to write restaurant reviews? We had this idea several years ago and approached the publisher and editor at that time about doing a Restaurant Critics Review. We asked that we not be identified individually as we did not want any special treatment when we visited a restaurant. It was decided unless we were identified by name the newspaper would not be agreeable to do this. Even after several years passed, we didnÂ’t give up on the idea and decided to try again but this time not as critics but as reviewers. Todd Wilson, publisher, and Robert Bridges, editor, were both in agreement that this would be a good service to their readers and that we should get started. We appreciate their leap of faith in our proposal.4. Do we eat out all the time? Â“Heavens no.Â” We did a lot of reviews prior to the first column appearing so that we had a reserve for publication so that is how we continue to do this. We write up several and they are then used at the paperÂ’s discre-tion. Sometimes we donÂ’t even write one article in a month. we just use the ones we have in reserve. This way we donÂ’t feel pressured to run out and do a review when we may have lots of things going on in our lives.5. Do you both write the column? Yes we do. There have been a few occasions when we didnÂ’t eat at the res-taurant at the same time but we try to individually visit before we agree on the contents of the review. So, we take turns writing each review and the other Buddy then edits but most-ly we try and go together when we plan a review. 6. What happens when we eat in a restaurant and the food isnÂ’t good?This has happened and we have chosen not to do a review when we donÂ’t enjoy our meal. We are not critics and we see our-selves as reviewers shar-ing a good experience with our readers, not bad ones. Several people have offered up ideas for future reviews and we so appreci-ate them. It gives us ideas about places we may be unfamiliar with but we can go and enjoy then share our review with you. This happens often so we hope you continue to share your comments and recommen-dations. Since we started in September some of the restaurants that we reviewed have closed. Mickey LÂ’s in Live Oak, the Telford Hotel in White Springs, BubÂ’s Hot Dogs, MikeÂ’sTastee Hot Dogs have phones that are dis-continued when we called to verify. The Ga. Pig closed after over 40 years. Southern Soul Barbeque in St. Simons had planned to open their second res-taurant there but talked with them today and they informed us that they had wanted to open there but the old building had been condemned. Again, we are saying these restaurants, we think, are closed. If you want to be certain you will need to check further. An update on HannahÂ’s Seafood on 90 West is the addition of the next door storefront and the completion of the outdoor space. This increases their seating capacity and groups are welcome. Travis continues to add tasty creations to the menu with new favorites being seafood bisque, fish tacos, steamed mussels. Q We want to say thank you again for all our readerÂ’s support and encouragement and a spe-cial thank you to the Lake City Reporter for taking a chance on us and our idea. In the coming edi-tions we may sprinkle in some of our favorite reci-pes since weÂ’ve had a lot of positive feedback from the Currents magazine articles. So, stay tuned.

Cottage cheese making comeback? A slice of cottage cheese pie topped with fresh berries is served on a plate in Concord, N.H. ASSOCIATED PRESS MIDDLETON, Idaho (AP) Robin Gilbert didnt set out to confront gender stereotypes when she split up the boys and girls at her elementary school in rural southwestern Idaho. But thats exactly what happened, with her Middleton Heights Elementary now among dozens of public schools nationwide being targeted by the American Civil Liberties Union in a bitter struggle over whether sin gle-sex learning should be continued. Under pressure, single-sex programs have been dropped at schools from Missouri to Louisiana. It doesnt frustrate me, Gilbert said of the criticism, but it makes the work harder. While Gilberts school is believed to be the only one in Idaho offering single-sex classes, the movement is widespread in states like South Carolina, which has more than 100 schools that offer some form of a singlegender program. Single-sex classes began proliferating after the U.S. Education Department relaxed restrictions in 2006. With research showing boys, particularly minor ity boys, are graduating at lower rates than girls and faring worse on tests, plenty of schools were paying attention. In 2002, only about a dozen schools were separat ing the sexes, according to the National Association for Single Sex Public Education, an advocacy group. Now, an estimated 500 public schools across the country offer some allboy and all-girl classrooms. Proponents argue the separation allows for a tai lored instruction and cuts down on gender-driven distractions among boys and girls, such as flirting. But critics decry the move ment as promoting harmful gender stereotypes and depriving kids of equal educational opportunities. The ACLU claims many schools offer the classes in a way that conflicts with the U.S. Constitution and Title IX, a federal law banning sex discrimination in educa tion. Researchers also have weighed in. Diane F. Halpern, a former president of the American Psychological Association, co-authored a review of studies last fall in the journal Science that found research doesnt sup port the benefits of singlesex education. Additionally, there are lots of problems whenever you segregate people into groups, Halpern said. Stereotyping increases so we really do have lots of data that says its just not supported, she said. However, proponents have put out their own studies, showing the benefits of separating stu dents. Middleton Heights Elementary cited the research when it first pilot ed single-sex classes in a few grades. The goal was to address the struggles boys were having in reading. The idea proved so popu lar that single-sex classes have expanded throughout the school. Parents can opt out, a choice required by law, if they want their kids in a traditional coed class room. In the single-sex classes, teachers use microphones that allow them to elec tronically adjust the tone of their voice to match the level that research suggests is best for boys. When preparing for a test, the boys may go for a run, or engage in some other activity, while the girls are more likely to do calming exercises, such as yoga. On a recent tour, Gilbert peeked into a classroom of third grade boys, who had decorated their walls with a camping theme, complete with construction paper campfires and a sign that read fishing for books. Next door, the thirdgrade girls opted for an under the sea motif. When they spotted Gilbert in their classroom door way, a few of the girls jumped from their seats and ran to give her a quick embrace. They learn the same curriculum, they still lunch and play at recess together, but the differences in their learning environments are apparent, from the blue chalkboards in the boy classrooms, to the red paper hearts that decorated the wall of one of the girls classrooms. Dr. Leonard Sax, the founder of the Pennsylvaniabased National Association for Single Sex Public Education, contends the movement is about break ing down gender stereo types, not promoting them. We want more girls engaged in robotics and computer programming and physics and engineer ing, Sax said in a telephone interview. We want more boys engaged in poetry and creative writing and Spanish language. For advocates like Sax, the increase in this form of learning is exciting, but its troubling for others. The ACLU launched a national campaign, Teach Kids, Not Stereotypes, in May and sent ceaseand-desist letters to school districts in Maine, West Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi and Virginia. Doug Bonney is legal director of the ACLU of Kansas and Western Missouri, where he suc cessfully challenged single sex classes in Missouris Adrian R-III School District. He argues theres no proof single-sex class rooms work while theres plenty of evidence they actually enhance gender stereotypes and lead to sexism. Both sides agree the idea is not new and has a long history in private schools. But Galen Sherwin, staff attorney with the ACLU Womens Rights Project, said its history in public schools is much darker and has roots in the South, where it was broadly insti tuted in an effort to evade the desegregation require ments of Brown v. Board of Education to try to prevent black boys from being in the same room as white girls. In the wake of Brown, many schools in the south integrated racially but seg regated on the basis of sex, Sherwin said. Nancy Levit, a law pro fessor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, addressed this issue at a meeting of the Association of American Law Schools: Think about it, in terms of race, she said. What would people say if the state paid for an all-white school or an all-black school? As long as there was a racial element nobody would have a problem seeing a constitu tional difficulty. The analogy drew a heated reaction from Sax, who argues that a federal judge in Kentucky debunked this notion when ruling last year against parents who tried to block single-sex classes at a Breckenridge County school. Critics like the ACLU are out of line when they draw paral lels to Brown v. Board of Education, Sax said. Either theyre really stupid and not able to grasp what the judge is saying in the ruling, or theyre being deliberately misleading, he said.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 15, 2012 3D3DLIFEBy CARLEY PETESCHAssociated PressJOHANNESBURG Â— Michaela DePrince was little more than a toddler when she saw her first ballerina Â— an image in a magazine page blown against the gate of the orphanage where she ended up during Sierra LeoneÂ’s civil war. It showed an American ballet danc-er posed on tip toe. Â“All I remember is she looked really, really happy,Â” Michaela told The Associated Press this week. She wished Â“to become this exact person.Â” From the misery of the orphanage Â“I saw hope in it. And I ripped the page out and I stuck it in my underwear because I didnÂ’t have any place to put it.Â” Now MichaelaÂ’s the one inspiring young Africans: She escaped war and suffers a skin pigmentation disorder that had her labeled Â“the devilÂ’s childÂ” at the orphanage. SheÂ’s an African danc-er in the world of ballet that sees few leading black females. She was adopted and raised to become a ballerina in the U.S. Â— a country where she believed everyone walked around on tippy toes. On July 19, Michaela performs in her first professional full ballet, danc-ing the part of Gulnare in Le Corsaire, as a guest artist of South AfricaÂ’s two biggest dance companies, Mzansi Productions and South African Ballet Theatre. Her ascent to stardom in the ballet world has been fast, if not typical. At 17, sheÂ’s already been featured in a documentary film and has performed on TV-show Â“Dancing With the StarsÂ”. She just graduated from high school and the American Ballet TheatreÂ’s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School, and will go on to work at Dance Theatre of Harlem. Her family recently moved from Vermont to New York City to sup-port her dance career and her sisterÂ’s acting and singing. Michaela said she has been offered many opportunities to dance with companies in Europe and in the U.S. Her big brown eyes are framed by mascara-coated lashes to cover their whiteness stemming from the vitiligo skin disorder. Tiny wisps of white curls peek through the dark brown hair pinned into a bun. Her wide infectious grin turned strained as she chatted about her childhood. Â“I lost both my parents, so I was there (the orphanage) for about a year and I wasnÂ’t treated very well because I had vitiligo,Â” she said Monday. Â“We were ranked as numbers and number 27 was the least favorite and that was my number, so I got the least amount of food, the least amount of clothes and what not.Â” Elaine DePrince, who adopted Michaela and two other girls, Mia and Mariel, from the orphanage, said she met the girls in Ghana in 1999. Michaela was 4. Â“They came to me sick and traumatized by the war,Â” DePrince said. Â“Michaela arrived with the worst case of tonsillitis, fever, mononucleosis and joints that were swollen. Michaela said the war and her time in the orphanage affected her for years. Â“It took a long time to get it out of my memory. But my mom helped me a lot and I wrote a lot of stuff down so I could recover from it,Â” she said. Â“Dance helped me a lot. I had a lot of night-mares. Â“ The adoptions took place as the West African country suffered a decade-long war that ended in 2002. Rebels burned villages, raped women and turned kid-napped children into drugged teenage fighters. Tens of thousands of civilians died. Countless others were mutilated by rebels who hacked off hands, arms or legs with machetes. Michaela said her father, a trader, was shot dead by rebels and her mother starved to death. It is unclear if she has family left in Sierra Leone. While Mia told her mother that many parents visited their children at the orphanage, Michaela didnÂ’t get visitors. DePrince said the family has worked hard to develop all their childrenÂ’s dreams. Â“She says she would have not had this dream come true if she had not become Michaela DePrinceÂ” by adop-tion, DePrince said, adding that none of the three girls adopted from Sierra Leone have expressed interest in find-ing their biological family. But Michaela said she does eventually want to return to her birthplace to open a school for dance and the arts. Â“I hope to inspire a lot of young children,Â” Michaela said, Â“no matter what people tell you, you should focus on your goals and you should do what you want to do, especially if you want to be a ballet dancer.Â” Star dancer born into war grows up to inspire Dancer Michaela DePrince rehearses for her lead role in Le Corsaire in Johannesburg. DePrince, who was born in Sierra Leone, escaped the ci vil war and was adopted by a family in the U.S. This will be DePrinceÂ’s first professional full ballet role.ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK (AP) Â— Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that if New Yorkers want to kill themselves with sugar Â— thatÂ’s their right. That was the mayorÂ’s response Monday to a small, peaceful protest rally against a ban on big sodas on a sidewalk near City Hall Park Â— dubbed The Million Big Gulp March. Bloomberg has proposed a crackdown on super-sized drinks. He wants to stop bar restaurants, movie theaters, sports arenas, food carts and delis from selling sodas and other sugary drinks in servings larg-er than 16 ounces. He says itÂ’s a way to fight obesity in a city that spends billions of dollars a year on weight-related health problems. Â“If you want to kill yourself, I guess you have the right to do it. WeÂ’re trying to do something about it,Â” Bloomberg said earlier Monday, when asked about the planned rally, which eventually drew dozens of protesters. Opponents say the city is overstepping its authority and infringing on personal freedom. Â“Hands off my BladderÂ” read a sign hoisted by Dominic Inferrera, a singer and actor in his 30s. Â“For a ban as ridiculous as this one, we need a protest with some humor,Â” said Inferrera, holding a Double Gulp cup he said was half filled with Powerade, half with Sprite. For some, the issue was far from funny. City Council Member Dan Halloran, a Republican from Queens, said BloombergÂ’s stance on soda size challenged nothing less than Â“the principles on which our country was founded.Â” Halloran, who is running for Congress, was flanked by two female campaign staffers encircled by mam-moth paper cubs that said Â“157 ozÂ” Â— a nonexistent soda size way above the typical 16or 20-ounce containers that fall under the ban. Â“This is not the way a democracy works,Â” he said. Â“When do we say enough control is enough? ItÂ’s a slip-pery slope. ItÂ’s not how our country was founded.Â” He cited the mayorÂ’s previous legislation linked to calories and cigarettes. David Krakauer, a 16-year-old New York native who lives in Israel, said thereÂ’s no such soda ban in Israel. Â“Every person has the right to decide how much soda he can drink Â— not the government.Â” The rally was led by the NYC Liberty HQ grass-roots group.

New Yorkers rally against super-sized drinks banASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) Â— TheyÂ’re young, healthy and flat broke Â— and now the government says they have to buy thousands of dollarsÂ’ worth of medical insur-ance. What should tapped-out twentysomethings do? Well, some may just do nothing. The annual fine for shrugging off the new federal insurance require-ment, which is to begin in 2014, starts out at a relatively low $95, depending on income. That would be far cheaper than paying premi-ums. But that doesnÂ’t necessarily make blowing off the mandate a good idea for the fit and frugal. Millions of young people will qual-ify for good deals on health care if they take time to sort through the complicated law. Many will get Medicaid coverage at virtually no cost. Others will qualify for private insurance at a fraction of the full premiums. And health plans offered under the law will limit individualsÂ’ out-of-pocket expenses to about $6,250 per year or less Â— a bul-wark against gigantic, unexpected medical bills. Â“It doesnÂ’t have to be cancer or a heart attack or even a bad car accident,Â” said Karen Pollitz, a health policy expert at the Kaiser Family Foundation whose own son needed $15,000 worth of sur-gery after he broke his wrist while skateboarding at age 20. Â“Once you show up in the ER, it starts to cost you some money.Â” The plans also will cover at no charge preventive care such as HIV tests, screening for depres-sion or alcoholism, flu shots, hepatitis vaccine, contraception and pregnancy care. And insurers will no longer be able to exclude or charge extra for people who already have health problems. Â“ItÂ’s the 15 percent of young people who have chronic condi-tions like asthma or diabetes, and the young women looking to have a baby,Â” said Aaron Smith, 30, co-founder of Young Invincibles, which advocates for young adultsÂ’ health care. Â“That discrimination wonÂ’t fly in 2014.Â” Young Americans are the least likely to be insured: almost three of 10 adults who are under 35 arenÂ’t covered. And they go to emergency rooms more than any other group except seniors. ItÂ’s still possible President Barack ObamaÂ’s health care law wonÂ’t be around in 2014, when the big changes are to kick in. Congressional Republicans and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney want to repeal Â“ObamacareÂ” if they win the November elections. GOT A JOB? START THERE More than half of Americans already are covered through their jobs. But young adults have the nationÂ’s highest unemployment rate and also are more likely to toil in low-wage jobs without ben-efits. Some employers, especially smaller businesses paying lower wages, may now drop their plans and expect their workers to get government help. Other businesses, but not quite as many, will probably begin coverage in response to the lawÂ’s penalties and incentives for employers, the Congressional Budget Office predicts.UNDER 26? LEAN ON MOM OR DAD One of the lawÂ’s most popular provisions, already in effect, ensures that parents with family plans can keep their adult kids enrolled until they turn 26, if the children donÂ’t have a suitable workplace option. PollitzÂ’s skate-boarding son is one of them. The government estimates that 3.1 million uninsured young people already have gained cover-age this way.CONSIDER MEDICAID Right now, Medicaid mostly covers children and low-income adults who are disabled, pregnant or raising kids. But the health care law will push states to expand Medicaid to also cover other adults with incomes up to around $15,000, adjusted for inflation in 2014. ThatÂ’s designed to account for about half of the 30 million people expected to gain insurance coverage under the overhaul. It may fall short, however. The Supreme Court recently ruled that the federal government canÂ’t coerce states into joining the Medicaid expansion. THEREÂ’S OTHER HELP Most people with incomes up to four times the poverty level Â— which currently comes out to $44,680 for an individual or $92,200 for a family of four Â— will qualify for some help paying for private insurance. Aid drops off sharply as income climbs, and younger people get smaller subsi-dies than older folks whose insur-ance rates are higher. The lowest earners shouldnÂ’t have to pay more than 2 percent of their incomes toward insurance premiums for mid-level plans; those at the high end would have to contribute 9.5 percent. These plans also have significant co-pays and deductibles, but some help is available there, too. For example, a single 26-yearold earning $16,000 might pay $537 toward the annual premium for a mid-level Â“silverÂ” plan, according to estimates from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The rest of the premium would be covered by a $2,853 tax credit. (Deductibles and co-pays could cost up to an additional $2,083, depending on several factors.)A CHEAPER BUT SKIMPY CHOICE For those under 30 thereÂ’s a special option to buy Â“catastroph-icÂ” insurance with the lowest pre-miums but scant coverage until a deductible of about $6,250 is met. While it may be tempting, caution is advised. Â“We really encourage folks to do their homework and look at the details of the plan,Â” said Smith, whoÂ’s organizing efforts to help young people learn about their choices. Â“ItÂ’s not just the pre-mium. You have to look at whatÂ’s being covered, what the deduct-ibles are.Â”GO BARE? People who would have to spend more than 8 percent of their income to buy basic insur-ance are exempt from paying a penalty if they go without. For others who feel they canÂ’t afford or just donÂ’t want coverage, the penalties start off relatively low in 2014. Private insurers have yet to set the prices for their 2014 plans, because coverage that will comply with the law is still being developed. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that premiums for the bare-bones plan, called Â“bronzeÂ” level, might aver-age between $4,500 and $5,000 per year. Family plans might cost $12,500 per year. Even for the wealthiest folks the law says the penalties can never exceed the average cost of a Â“bronzeÂ” plan. But most of those people already have insurance, anyway. The Internal Revenue Service could withhold the penalties from taxpayersÂ’ refunds if they donÂ’t show proof of insurance. About 4 million people are expected to end up paying the penalties. Â“For many young people, this is the first time theyÂ’ve had to deal with health insurance and the health care system,Â” said Smith. Â“There will be a learning curve.Â”Health care options for young, healthy and broke

DEAR ABBY: Shortly after my wife and I were married, my wife got preg-nant. Due to complications with the pregnancy, the baby had to be delivered early through a C-section. Our baby didnÂ’t make it. That was four years ago. After unsuccessfully trying to conceive for almost a year now, my wife decided she wanted to find out why. We learned that there is a problem that was most likely caused by the C-section. Although we are still trying to see what can be done, there is a good chance that things wonÂ’t be as easy as we expected regarding a pregnancy. IÂ’m personally in no hurry, but my wife is suffer-ing a great deal as a result of this. IÂ’m trying to ease things for her, telling her that this is not her fault and that weÂ’re in this together, and trying to reassure her that she is more important to me than kids. However, she keeps saying that IÂ’m just saying it, and with time I will change my mind and start to think about having kids. She says this is a basic instinct and it will eventually show up. -CONFUSED HUSBAND IN JORDAN DEAR CONFUSED HUSBAND: There are many happily childless couples. But before you and your wife reconcile to being one of them, consult an ob/gyn who specializes in infer-tility. Thanks to advances in medical science, there is more than one way to become parents. If your wife isnÂ’t able to carry a pregnancy to term because of her surgery, you may be able to hire a surrogate to do it. The baby would result from your sperm and your wifeÂ’s egg and be your bio-logical child. ItÂ’s possible that your wife is depressed and could benefit from talk-ing with a mental health professional. I hope you both will start doing some research to find out what options are available to you -including adoption -if you wish to become parents. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a happily married English lady who came to the United States in 1985. I have a good career work-ing for the same company for more than 20 years. My husband and I have no children. We enjoy travel and twice a year visit my aging parents in England. My problem is that my guilt for not being there for my parents is growing stronger by the day. IÂ’m an only child and feel that although they are both in relatively good health, they really need me. To move there would be financially impossible for us. Every year for the past 10 years we have spent a total of four weeks with them in England. I call them every three days on the phone, and yet the guilt continues to build. -CONFLICTED IN FLORIDA DEAR CONFLICTED: You are a caring daughter who has made a success of her life, and who, because she loves her parents, is making herself crazy over choices she made years ago that she canÂ’t change. You are doing more for your parents than many people do, so stop flogging yourself. Please! DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Honor a promise before you move on. Taking care of responsi-bilities will speak volumes about who you are as a person and what you are capable of doing. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Appeal to people who have something you need or want, and you will be able to complete a labori-ous task. A group effort will expand your interest in volunteering your time or providing a service you have to offer for a price. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Listen and learn. You can make strategic chang-es that will improve your living arrangements and ease stress and anxiety. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): A personal situation may lead to uncertainty or added responsibility. Do what you can, and you will end up having an advantage over someone who refused to participate. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make positive changes that will improve your skills, knowledge or appeal. Someone you feel responsible for will help you out, easing your obli-gation and allowing you to pursue something that will lead to greater oppor-tunities and less financial stress. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): DonÂ’t show surprise when something doesnÂ’t go your way. Keep your feelings secret until you are sure you can trust the people you are dealing with. Mixing business with pleasure will lead to a false sense of security. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take a leap of faith. You have all the right moves, so start making them. If you love someone, let that person know, and if you want something, ask for it. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): DonÂ’t let possessions out of your sight. Protect what youÂ’ve worked hard to achieve. Set up a game plan that will help you add more to the list of services or skills you can provide. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Getting together with old friends or distant relatives will spark an interest in something you can do well and put to good use. Love is high-lighted, along with a part-nership that can benefit you personally or profes-sionally. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Research will pay off, and precision and detail will make a differ-ence. Concentrate on what you need to do and whom you need to connect with in order to advance. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Dress up your residence so it reflects your personality, and you will feel good. Love and romance are in the stars, and entertaining the thought of making a seri-ous promise to someone who cares about you will lead to a better relation-ship. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick close to home. The less you travel or deal with those in an authorita-tive position, the better. Represent yourself, and youÂ’ll avoid giving some-one the wrong impression. A new relationship will not be as it appears. Protect your heart. ++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Hose shape5 Building blocks7KH2IILFHZRPDQ4%IHDWV7KLVWLFNVPHRII@:LWK$FURVV 7KDWVQRWWUXH 5HODWLYHRID KDUUXPSK 1RWIODWVD\2QHRIWZRIRUIRXU6ODORPREVWDFOH85 Passing%UHHGKDWUHGLQ",WVVHHQRQPDQ\ roadside signs :KHQWKHZLWFKHVLQ 0DFEHWKVD\'RXEOHGRXEOHWRLODQGWURXEOH 6XUHWKLQJBBBEHHWOH(WHUQDOO\&DQWHUEXU\FDQ2UJWU\LQJWRFOHDU WKHDLU" (G:RRGSOD\HULQ (G:RRG 108 Squad cars:RPDQZKRVWKH YHU\EHVWDWVD\LQJQR" 3DUWRI7%6$EEU3DORI3RRK 116 Modern PDUNHWSODFH /LNHWKHYHUEV FRPHDQGJR$EEU %DVHEDOO7RQLJKW EURDGFDVWHU 121 Bulldogs5HDOO\HQMR\ JLYLQJVSHFLILFV" $UWBBB$OH[DQGHU*UDKDP %HOOE\ELUWK *HWUHDG\IRUD ERPEVD\ 130 Corona garnish5HTXLUHRI

ThatÂ’s what a Northern California yoga instructor found after leading sessions at FacebookÂ’s Menlo Park campus. The instructor, Alice Van Ness, said she got fired after she glared at a Facebook employee who texted during a class in June. Â“The whole point for most people going to yoga is that itÂ’s disconnecting from the outside world,Â” said Van Ness, a 35-year-old San Carlos resident who has taught yoga for six years. Â“If you are bringing your phone into class, why are you even there?Â” Van Ness told the Facebook class to turn their phones off after seeing a female employee with a cellphone out. Later, while demonstrating a difficult pose, she caught the same worker typing on her phone. Van Ness said she stayed silent, but shot the woman a disapproving look. The employee stepped out before return-ing to the class, Van Ness said. According to a termination letter from Plus One Health Management that was provided to The Associated Press by Van Ness, she was warned prior to the class that she could not enforce a cellphone ban. David Milani, a representative of Plus One Health Management, declined to com-ment specifically on Van NessÂ’ case. But he said company instructors who teach at some companies including Facebook are required to allow fitness members to pick up their phones during class. Van Ness thought it would blow over, until she was fired two weeks later. The Facebook employee was embarrassed and shocked by the Â“confrontationÂ” with the instructor, the termination letter indicated. The company feared making clients unhap-py, Van Ness said. Â“We are in the business of providing great customer service. Unless a client requires us to specifically say Â‘noÂ’ to some-thing, we prefer to say Â‘yesÂ’ whenever pos-sible,Â” an official wrote in the termination letter. Facebook, in a statement, declined to comment on Van NessÂ’ case, saying itÂ’s against their policy to comment on deci-sions made by outside vendors. Van Ness said losing the job meant losing a third of her monthly income. But since her story went public, she said she landed a new job where sheÂ’s keeping the no cell-phone rule. No texting in Yoga Yoga instructor Alice Van Ness, left, instructs stu dent Melanie Gurunathan Wednesday at Lifestretch Yoga in Milpitas, Calif. V an Ness has been fired for her disapproving stink-eye glare at a Facebook employee using a cellphone in class.ASSOCIATED PRESS WeddingCarswell-CarruthMr. and Mrs. Alex L.
