High water in the park still poses a hazard with increased alligators and snakes in the recreational areas of the park. Reptile refugees keep park closed By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Snakes and alligators like the playground, too. An abundance of the reptiles continue to seek refuge from flood waters on the dry area around the picnic pavilions and the playground equipment at the Alligator Lake Public Recreation Area. There are so many snakes and alligators pres ent, county officials were forced to keep the park on lockdown until conditions improve. The water is crossing most of the trails and has everything flooded around the park area to where it is unsafe to be used, said Clint Pittman, Columbia County Landscape and Parks director. We do have a lot of alligators and snakes that are up around and close to the playground areas because of the high water. Thats some of the only dry area available, so its got the wildlife in the area where the public normally uses. Its another safety concern. Pittman said the Alligator Lake Public Recreation Area and Rum Island Park on the Santa Fe River are the only two Columbia County Parks that remain closed because of high water levels and dam ages from Tropical Storm Debby. Falling Creek Park, which also suffered dam age from Tropical Storm Debbys rains, was cleaned and reopened two weeks ago. Pittman said he is uncer tain when the Alligator Lake Public Recreation area will reopen.

U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, R-Fla., met with the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration this week to discuss funding options for the Aquarius Reef Base. The undersea lab in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary has allowed scientists to live and work underwater for days at a time. After meeting with NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco, Ros-Lehtinen said neither the agencys nor the White Houses budgets include funding for Aquarius. Ros-Lehtinen said remote research takes the humanity out of sci ence. But she also said she was encouraged that Lubchenco will explore other funding for Aquarius. A private foundation also is raising money to keep the lab running. 2 plead guilty to smuggling charges MIAMI U.S. authori ties say two Bahamian men have pleaded guilty to trying to smuggle people into Florida. According to the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami, the U.S. Coast Guard picked up Rico Jerome Miller, Wardell Hall and six other passen gers in April from a small boat adrift with engine trouble off the Florida coast. None had authori zation to enter the United States. The U.S. Attorneys Office says the other passengers told investiga tors that they had left the Bahamas three days ear lier with Miller and Hall, who were going to take them to the Miami area. Miller and Hall each pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of attempt ed alien smuggling. Sentencing is scheduled for October. Each faces a minimum of three years and maximum of 10 years in prison for each count. Soldier killed in Afghanistan LARGO Family mem bers say a Tampa Bay-area soldier has been killed in Afghanistan. The family of Staff Sgt. Matthew Steven Sitton says Army officials told them Thursday that the 26-year-old died this week after stepping on an impro vised explosive device in Afghanistan. Cheryl Sitton says her son was an adventurous child who joined the Army in 2006. Sitton was stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. His family says he had been scheduled to return home in a month. It was his third deployment to Afghanistan. He also is survived by his wife and an infant son. One of Sittons high school baseball team mates at Indian Rocks Christian School also was killed in Afghanistan. Cpl. Frank Gross died in July 2011 when an improvised explosive device caused a vehicle roll-over. Man set girlfriend on fire, stole car LAKELAND Authorities say a central Florida woman is in critical condition after her boy friend set her on fire. Lakeland Police Chief Lisa Womack says the 26-year-old woman was taken to a hospital Friday night with severe burns. Witnesses reported see ing the woman on fire run from a home. Police say the womans boyfriend set her on fire and then stole a van. Later that evening, police say the man burglarized a home and then tried to use a stolen credit card at a gas station. Womack says the man was taken into cus tody Saturday morning. Additional details about his arrest were not immedi ately available. Scott a hit at gathering JACKSONVILLE Gov. Rick Scott shot back Saturday at oppo nents who have sued and criticized his conservative agenda and was cheered by an audience who sup ports his efforts to drug test welfare recipients, strip teachers of tenure and make Florida more business friendly. Scott was a big hit addressing a gathering organized by the con servative RedState blog, drawing laughs several times as he made fun of people who oppose his policies. The governor whose approval rating was 36 percent in a poll released last week clearly was in front of a friendly crowd and he received a standing ovation when he wrapped the 24-minute speech. If you do conservative things in Florida, now you get sued, Scott said, adding he then gets criti cized for spending money on lawyers to defend the laws. After they sue you ... then they say Why are you wasting state dollars? Because its the right thing to do. Thats why youre doing it. Report: Justifiable force used in raid MIDDLEBURG Authorities say north Florida sheriffs deputies used justifiable force in a shootout during a meth lab raid that ended with a detective and a suspect dead. A State Attorneys Office review says Clay County Sheriffs deputies fatally shot Ted Arthur Tilley in response to the shots Tilley fired at them during the February raid. The review released Friday said Tilley and other suspects had meth in their systems when the shootings occurred. Sheriff Rick Beseler told The Florida Time-Union that the review confirms what we knew from the beginning. Detective David White was among nine deputies and detectives investigat ing a tip about the lab in a Middleburg home. White was fatally shot and another detective was wounded in the shootout. Three suspects face first-degree murder charges in Whites death.

Jeremiah 33:2-3 NIV NEW ORLEANS For more than 50 years, Eddie Levert and Walter Williams have been bringing classic R&B melodies to fans of the OJays in the only way that they know how with style and a signature sound that draws multi-generational audi ences to their shows. On Sunday, the group which also includes Eric Nolan Grant joins Patti LaBelle, Kenny Babyface Edmunds and Maze, featuring Frankie Beverly, for a performance at the New Orleans Arena as part of the Summer Festival Tour. Williams, in an interview with The Associated Press, encouraged fans to come hear some of their classics, including For the Love of Money, Use Ta Be My Girl, and I Love Music. He says this tour is special because getting this kind of talent together again might not happen. Olympic viewing era ending for Gaines, too LONDON There was a real sadness in Rowdy Gaines voice as he called Michael Phelps 17th gold medal-winning race and last individual Olympics competition. Im going to miss that man, the NBC swimming analyst said. The curtain offi cially closed Saturday on the Phelps era with his final medley relay race, another gold medal perfor mance. The swimmer said hes retiring after London and has looked like it, appearing relaxed and reflective in inter views. Gaines and partner Dan Hicks have covered Phelps in four of the five Olympics where they have been partners for NBC. I thank God every day that we had him in our sport and nobody else had him in theirs, Gaines said. Gaines, himself a three-time gold medal-winning swimmer, said Phelps has clearly done more for swimming than anyone else in its history. Theyve had a friendly relationship, although Phelps appears to have used some of Gaines words as motivation. While calling a race in 2003, Gaines suggested that Phelps had started off too quickly and wouldnt be able to maintain his pace. Phelps won, setting a world record for time in the process. After many of his subsequent wins, as recently as last year, Phelps would needle Gaines: Did I fade in that race, Rowdy? When Phelps lost his first race of the London Olympics to Ryan Lochte, Gaines was blunt in his assessment that Phelps had not prop erly trained for the event. Gaines didnt consider that criticism since Phelps himself had admitted the same thing. Gaines questions whether Phelps will, or should, retire from swimming after London. He doesnt have to have a job, he said. Its not like he has to go to work as a banker to make money. He can live off being Michael Phelps. Hed advise Phelps to take a couple of years off and then see how he feels. Phelps would still be young enough to be competitive in the 2016 Games, and there would be no pressure, he said. Maybe its just wishful thinking, he said. Rock Hall marking Grateful Dead exhibit CLEVELAND The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is turning up the volume on its Grateful Dead special exhibit this weekend. The weekend activities are timed to mark what would have been Jerry Garcias 70th birthday and the 17th anniversary of his death.

The Rock Hall also offered a cura tor gallery talk on the Grateful Dead exhibit Saturday and a screening of the film, Dead Ahead. The Grateful Dead exhibit contin ues through December. Schwarzenegger: Sports zeal landed me in brig BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Arnold Schwarzenegger was so eager to start his bodybuilding career that he briefly ended up in an Austrian military brig, the actor and former California governor said Friday. He was 18 and serving a mandat ed year with the army in his native Austria in the mid-1960s when he snuck out of camp for the Junior Mr. Europe contest in Germany, Schwarzenegger told a meeting of TV critics. He won the contest but also earned two or three days in the army jail, Schwarzenegger said. But military officials felt uncom fortable and he was released, he said. Schwarzenegger, 65, is the sub ject of a new ESPN Films docu mentary, Arnolds Blueprint, set to debut Sept. 26 on the ESPN website Grantland.com. Its one of a series of short documentaries that will be available online. Charges dropped against actor Cuba Gooding Jr. NEW ORLEANS Misdemeanor battery charges relat ed to a bar dust-up in New Orleans French Quarter have been officially dropped against Academy Awardwinning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. City spokesman Ryan Berni said an arraignment hearing was held Friday but there was no one to press the complaint. As a result, he said, the city moved to drop the charges. This ends the case, Berni said. The Times-Picayune reports Gooding, 44, did not appear at the brief hearing before Judge Sean Early. The hearing came two days after an Old Absinthe House employ ee said she was dropping charges against him. n ASSOCIATED PRESS Phelps

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Ernesto was expected to swirl south of Jamaica as a hurricane tonight. The fore-cast projected the storm would move over the coastal resorts of MexicoÂ’s Yucatan Peninsula as a Category 1 hurricane Wednesday. Long lines formed at grocery stores in the Jamaican capital of Kingston as peo-ple bought water, bread and canned goods. Â“WeÂ’re going to have heavy rains, so IÂ’m stock-ing up,Â” said Marco Brown, a Kingston resident in his late 50s. The Jamaican government ordered fishermen who live in outlying cays to evacuate and head to the main island. The storm was expected to pass close to Pedro Cays on Sunday eve-ning, according to the local Meteorological Service Office. The storm earlier forced Dominica to close its air-port for two days, and St. Lucia ordered shops to close for several hours, but no damage or flooding was reported on islands affected by the storm. The U.S. hurricane center said Ernesto had maxi-mum sustained winds of about 60 mph (95 kph) late Saturday afternoon. It was about 495 miles (800 kilo-meters) east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica, and was moving westward at 18 mph (30 kph). Meanwhile, a new tropical storm, Florence, formed far out in the Atlantic. It had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (85 kph) and was about 515 miles (830 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde Islands. The hurricane center said it was not expected to reach hurricane force as it moved generally westward. TropicalStormErnestoheadstowardMexico By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comH arry Wuest is a Lake City legend, but his fame and influence go far beyond the Gateway City. Wuest is a skilled and well-known musician who moved to Lake City in the late 1980s. He has worked as a band manager, composer, copyist, conductor, vocal-ist, saxophonist and clarinet player. He has worked alongside such art-ists as Glenn Miller, Lena Horne, Barbra Streisand, Rosemary Clooney and Cab Calloway, just to name a few. He has been on, behind and in front of the stage of countless acts. His saxophone playing was featured on the original recording of Â“Night Train,Â” a popular blues standard from the 1950s. Â“HeÂ’s got this very smooth and very polished sound,Â” said Matt Johns, a Lake City student of Wuest. Â“That was the Harry Wuest sound. Up until he couldnÂ’t play, he still sounded like that.Â” Â“When you start listening to jazz standards, just about everybody there, he has had some impact on one way or another,Â” vocal-ist and Lake City resident Jeanie Wilks said. Wuest was born in 1922 and raised in the New York City borough of Queens. As a kid, he would dodge school to go watch acts on Broadway. Â“He had all the right stuff around him and he just did all the right things,Â” Johns said. At 13, he put his first band together, called Harry Wuest and the Caravan of Swing Band. He left college at age 16 to play in top Big Bands of the day. He went into the military and worked as a copyist for the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. Later in life, he worked as the conductor of DisneyÂ’s Top of the World Orchestra. Â“He could put whoever he wanted to in place and have the greatest players, the greatest arrangers,Â” Johns said. Â“He was hired for either a 2-week or 2-month contract and he ended up staying like 7 years.Â” By this point, Wuest had been married twice and had four children. It wasnÂ’t until 1989 that Wuest came to Lake City for an interview as Florida Gateway College band director. He was interviewed by a woman named Margaret, who later became his wife. Margaret Wuest worked for the Lake City Reporter as society editor and was a very active member of the community. 386-755-4911Discover How Much Better Your World Can SoundÂ… Call (386) 466-0902 Wuest: A music legendLake City band leader shares love of music.

As the Associated Press reported, the fractious Republican-led House couldnÂ’t even agree to adjourn but left town anyway, leaving behind an unfinished drought-relief bill for cattle and sheep ranchers, who are now simply out of luck until September at the earliest. The House leadership threw together a $383 million short-term package of loans and grants, but the Senate, noting that it had passed a full five-year reauthoriza-tion of the farm bill in June that the House ignored, refused to act. Also steaming was the House Agriculture Committee that had produced a companion measure, which the leadership declined to bring to the floor. The leadership could expect little help from that quarter. The lawmakers were also unable to stay around to reach agreement on a high-priority cyber-security bill, although the sticking points in both the House and Senate -how big a role should government play in pro-tecting private businesses -seem quite capable of resolution. The lawmakers say theyÂ’ll get around to that one, too, in September. The Senate Finance Committee approved an extension of $200 billion in special-interest business tax breaks, although to its credit it is allowing the tax break for ethanol producers to expire. The lawmakers left town with no progress made in dealing with the Â“fiscal cliff,Â” automatic spend-ing cuts agreed to in a budget deal last summer that the military says will gravely cripple national defense and many economists believe will push the country into another recession. Asked to point to a legislative achievement this year members of Congress point to passage of a highway bill, but the old bill expired three years ago and was extended nine times. The new version lasts only two years instead of the customary five. So thereÂ’s plenty for Congress to do when it gets back in September. It has scheduled itself to work eight days that month. S upport for same-sex marriage is now in the Democratic Party preliminary platform. Once approved by the full platform committee and voted on at the convention, same-sex marriage will have the partyÂ’s formal support. But as Democrats institutionalize their support for same sex-marriage, their relationship with the partyÂ’s most loyal constitu-ency, black Americans, becomes increasingly uneasy. A new survey just released by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life shows 65 percent of Democrats support same-sex marriage compared to just 40 percent of blacks. A group of 3,700-plus black pastors, the Coalition of African-American Pastors, under the leadership of the Rev. William Owens, has moved to formally oppose the Democratic Party and President Barack Obama on this issue. The group is spearheading a Â“Mandate for MarriageÂ” cam-paign to gather 100,000 signa-tures on a petition declaring sup-port for traditional marriage. The petition also calls for Obama Â“to repudiate his assertion that gay marriage is a civil right.Â” These black pastors are not in the business of politics, nor are they policy wonks. They are driven by commitment to biblical truths and the direct challenge to and rejection of these truths by social acceptance of homosexual behavior and same-sex marriage. They donÂ’t see biblical truths as academic points divorced from the practical realities of life. They see them as the rules that sustain life. And they see the crises spreading in their com-munities and in our nation as acceptance of these truths falling by the wayside. HIV/AIDS is devastating black America. Reading the grim statis-tics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention makes clear that this plague is driven, first and foremost, by homosexu-al behavior. According to the CDC: Â“In 2009, African-Americans com-prised 14 percent of the U.S. population but accounted for 44 percent of all new HIV infections. ... Black men accounted for 70 percent of the estimated new HIV infections among all blacks. ... Black men who have sex with men represented an estimated 73 percent of new inflections among black men. ...Â” Research abounds showing the importance of intact tradi-tional family life in the academic success of children and of overall economic health. In recent testimony before the Senate Finance Committee, Ron Haskins of the Brookings Institution noted that individuals who follow three rules -com-plete at least high school, work full time and wait until age 21 and get married before having a baby -have a 2 percent chance of winding up in poverty and a 72 percent chance of being in the middle class. Since the 1960s, American family life in general has deteriorated with the departure from traditional values and the concomitant growth in government and the welfare state. But deterioration of black family life has been the most pro-nounced. In 2008, according to a Pew Research Center report, 32 per-cent of black adults were mar-ried, compared to 61 percent in 1960. These black pastors understand that collapse of family, out-of-wedlock births, single-par-ent households, promiscuity, drugs and crime are the crises undermining black physical and economic health today. And they understand that a society that validates alternative lifestyles that undermine life-sustaining biblical truths is a society that will inevi-tably promote and advance this deadly behavior. They understand that the weakest communities -their own communities -are the most vulnerable. This Coalition of AfricanAmerican pastors is showing, very much in the spirit of the civil rights movement, that the political choices facing blacks are not limited to deciding which political train to get on. They are jumping up front to influence where the train is going. ItÂ’s high time for blacks to serve up some black tea to the Democratic Party, as the Tea Partiers are doing with Republicans, and move to change the values and direction of the party they have loyally supported but that no longer represents their interests. n Star Parker is an author and president of CURE, Center for Urban Renewal and Education.

The Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party are suing the critical swing state of Ohio to strike down a law that makes it easier for members of the military to vote. Under the law, people in uniform may cast early ballots in person up to the day before an election, instead of the previous Friday cutoff for other voters. Democrats have a transparent political motive. A May 2012 Gallup survey showed Mr. Obama trailing Mitt Romney among veterans 58 to 34 percent. Â“About a fourth of men are vet-erans,Â” Gallup reported, Â“and it is their strong skew toward Romney that essentially creates the GOP candidateÂ’s leading position among men today.Â” The DemocratsÂ’ suit alleges the Buckeye StateÂ’s law is Â“arbitraryÂ” with Â“no discern-ible rational basis,Â” but it is a response to a very real problem. Â“ItÂ’s truly difficult to vote,Â” an active-duty service member told The Washington Times. Â“The military tries hard to help us out with awareness and links to state voting sites but most troops donÂ’t exercise their fran-chise because itÂ’s too hard.Â” The political attack on our troops reopens a wound from the 2000 presidential race. During the controversial Florida recount process, Democrats issued a detailed eight-page guide to local operatives for challenging military overseas ballots. Â“Those few who are making the effort to be citizens in every sense of the word should be supported,Â” our source said. Â“It makes you wonder why they are investing that much time and effort to keep the troops from voting. They must be desper-ate.Â” K ofi Annan turned in his resignation as United Nations special envoy to Syria on Thursday, but his mission was over months ago. It was doomed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who was never serious about peace and determined to crush the opposition, and by his chief backer, Russian President Vladimir Putin. The five months that Mr. Annan devoted to talk, with the ill-considered backing of the Obama administration, simply gave Mr. Assad more time to wage war. The failed mission offers vital lessons for the future. The first is one that Mr. Annan should know well: He learned it in the 1990s con-flict in the former Yugoslavia. Then as now, the leading powers were initially hesi-tant to use military force. Then as now, U.N. personnel were sent to a battlefield and proved ineffective in the face of evil. After the worst mas-sacre in postwar European history, by Bosnian Serbs at Srebrenica, Mr. Annan wrote a searing retrospective for the United Nations. He declared that Â“when peacekeeping operations are used as a sub-stitute for political consensus they are likely to fail.Â” He added, Â“The job simply cannot be done.Â” These words are just as valid today as when Mr. Annan wrote them in 1999. The U.N. Security Council sent unarmed monitors into an intensifying war zone in Syria without a consensus of the leading powers to back them up. It was wishful think-ing to believe that Mr. Assad would be coaxed into retire-ment by a divided council. For way too long, the Obama administration Â— eager to avoid more decisive action Â— clung to unrealistic hopes that AnnanÂ’s plan would work. The administration also seems to have misjudged how steadfastly Mr. Putin would stand behind the Syrian regime. There were vague hopes that, sooner or later, the Kremlin would give up on Mr. Assad. But Mr. Putin refused to budge. For years, he has been disdainful and fearful of the Â“colorÂ” revolu-tions Â— Orange in Ukraine, Rose in Georgia Â— that swept autocrats from power. In recent months, he has heard the footsteps of protest out-side his own Kremlin walls. He was not about to applaud the drumbeat of another revo-lution seeking to topple a dic-tator in Syria. ItÂ’s not comfort-ing to see Mr. Putin express an outmoded, Cold War mind-set that sees RussiaÂ’s inter-est in opposing the United States at every step Â— but it is something that should not have surprised the White House. Many in Washington misread Mr. Assad. In some early accounts, he was portrayed as a moderate or modernizing figure, a more enlightened version of his brutal father, Hafez al-Assad, who ruled Syria for three decades. But the events of the past 18 months suggest that the younger Mr. Assad has matched his fatherÂ’s record of despotism: He is willing to slaughter an unlimited num-ber of his own people in order to cling to power. Now that diplomacy has utterly failed to stop him, it is time for the Obama administration to con-sider measures that stand a real chance of accelerating his downfall Â— beginning with greater material support for the opposition.

Chris had a way about her that she could always make you laugh. Her sense of humor was evident even to the very end. . .i.e., a nurse was trying to check her blood sugar and was my dad said to my mom to just ger and, well, she did. ..but it ger she felt to give ..... I still smile when I think about that. Chris could appear to be a hard nut to crack but in all reality she had a heart that was loving and giving. She would see a person in need and if she was able to help them she would do so and usually without the person who was receiving the help ever knowing that she was the one that had helped them.

Â“He and Margaret devel-oped a relationship over that interview,Â” Wilks said. Â“Then it was dinner and then they were mar-ried. That was the love of his life.Â” Â“He was absolutely in love with her, and she with him, I think,Â” Johns said. Â“It was only toward the end of her life, when AlzheimerÂ’s was fully developed that things started to get rough. They were very, very close.Â” In Lake City, Wuest began to build bands into noteworthy ensembles. Â“When he first came to the college, he had four students in the band program and it was something ridiculous like a French horn player, a xylophone player, maybe a drummer and some-body that owned a trum-pet,Â” Johns said. Over time, the band got better and Wuest built up a library of resources for his musicians to use. Johns called Wuest a problem solver. Â“He has an amazing ability to just take some-thing that should never work and make it work, musically,Â” he said. His attitude toward music is serious. He is critically honest with his students, but he delivers his advice with clever-ness and wit. Â“He is extremely witty and you really have to watch yourself because you think you are talking to this sweet old man and he will say something that will just like, you will think twice and go, Â‘wait, did he mean what I think he meant?Â’Â” Johns said. This tendency was sometimes seen as a bit harsh. Â“He is a little abrasive,Â” Johns said. Â“He is from Old School New York, so he says what he thinks and that has turned a lot of people off, around here especially. But if you take what he says and think, Â‘the guy really knows what heÂ’s talking about maybe I should take it to heart and not get offended by it,Â’ then you can really learn something.Â” Johns said he feels like he has inherited some of WuestÂ’s old school sensi-bility. Wilks agreed, calling him Â“very blunt.Â” Â“What he does is he listens to your style and says that song is not yours and itÂ’s not that you did it poorly, but itÂ’s not best for your voice and he can spot it in a heartbeat,Â” she said. Â“The harshness, itÂ’s not really harshness. HeÂ’s just blunt. But if youÂ’ve worked with Rosemary Clooney, if youÂ’ve worked with Barbra Streisand, who am I to take offense when he tells me itÂ’s not my song.Â” When Margaret died several years ago, WuestÂ’s health began to plummet. He developed prostate cancer and his body began to show signs of aging. Â“He was strong, his faith kept him through,Â” Wilks said. Wuest is a devout Catholic. Johns said his wife helped reintroduce him to the religion after they were married. Â“He says, I can never thank her enough for that,Â” Johns said. Johns said as Wuest got older, his lung capac-ity began to diminish. As a reed musician, this affected him more than most. Â“He was complaining about his air,Â” Johns said. Â“You know he didnÂ’t have the air, and in therapy they were saying you got more lung capacity than any other person your age. What are you talking about?Â” Wuest helped Johns get into the Glenn Miller Orchestra at age 20. Johns played with Wuest for over 15 years, but said he never really knew his stature until he went on the road. The band director of the Glenn Miller Orchestra would introduce Johns as a friend of WuestÂ’s to prominent musicians. Â“Their eyes would light up, because nobody expected him to still be alive,Â” Johns said. Â“There was a time when I think if you were a musician in the industry and really working, you knew who Harry Wuest was.Â” Johns also realized the extent of WuestÂ’s experi-ence. Â“He has been everywhere,Â” Johns said. Â“When I was on the road, I would talk to him occa-sionally and he would say, where are you today? It would be some obscure little town somewhere in nowhere, in Iowa or something, and he would say, Â‘oh yeah, I remem-ber that town, thereÂ’s a theater there, thereÂ’s a....Â’ and he would start tell-ing me these things and I would say I guess youÂ’re right, I donÂ’t know...Â” Â“HeÂ’s an amazing man and people donÂ’t realize it because heÂ’s not at all prideful,Â” Wilks said. Â“I think very, very few, because he is so humble, have any idea of where he has been.Â” Johns called Wuest a prophet in his own town. Â“He has done everything in the music busi-ness there is to do includ-ing not just playing and leading orchestras and bands and conducting on Broadway and own-ing Broadway publishing company,Â” Johns said. Â“I mean, good grief, what hasnÂ’t he done?Â” Â“He lived a fulfilling life, he did everything he needed to do, thatÂ’s for sure,Â” son Eddie Wuest said. Â“ThatÂ’s one thing that he told me, that heÂ’s done what he needed to do.Â” Eddie said his father has been at the Health Center for the past month because he could not take care of himself any longer. Prior to that, Eddie and his father were living together in a two-story house with a spiral staircase in the center and a tuba in the bushes outside as decoration. Eddie moved in with his father shortly after Margaret died. He said it was beneficial for both of them to live together. Â“Whenever he went to the nursing home, he really didnÂ’t want to be there and he was trying to come up with schemes to leave,Â” Eddie said. Â“He even tried to have Kirsten, my nephew, break him out. He just didnÂ’t want to be there. He is a very independent person. He got to to a point where he finally said this was home, this was where he needed to be. And I was very happy about that.Â” Eddie is a DJ and is studying to be a sound engineer. He believes his musical inclination is genetic. Â“Whenever I make beats and stuff I am sure I am getting that from Dad,Â” he said. Eddie said his fatherÂ’s status and success make him want to live up to the same. Â“He is a high-functioning person,Â” he said. Wuest celebrated his 90th birthday at the Health Center last month. He blew out 90 candles spread across two cakes. As his health fails, visitors gather around his room at the Health Center, waiting to have lucid a moment with him. Â“Even now, heÂ’s just an Energizer bunny, it seems like he could go on forever,Â” Eddie said. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS SUNDAY, AUGUST 5, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-04246A Mr. Mitt Romney, come to Florida.

Lawmakers headed home for a five-week break with a lengthy list of uncompleted work and little to show for the past year and a half except an eye-popping amount of dissatisfaction: Nearly 80 per-cent of Americans are unhappy with them. The Republican-con-trolled House and Democratic-led Senate have set record lows for production and record highs for dysfunction. Partisanship and electionyear politics have left a droughtstricken nation wondering if new help will ever come and the U.S. Postal Service uncertain about its solvency. Some $110 billion in automatic, across-the-board cuts are due to hit military and domestic programs on Jan. 2, yet no bipartisan solution is in sight or even under discussion by those who really matter. At the same time, President George W. Bush-era tax cuts for all Americans expire, threaten-ing to send a sluggish economy right back into recession. The standoff is what happens when a bitterly divided govern-ment mixes with election-year politics to throw sand in the gears of official Washington. The tea party-dominated House and a Senate controlled by Democrats struggling to keep their narrow majority in November view each other with a palpable disdain. House Speaker John Boehner, who came to Washington in 1991, bluntly described the divide that has made consensus a rare commodity. Â“The American people are probably more polarized now than any time since IÂ’ve been here,Â” the Ohio Republican told reporters. Â“And as a result we see that polarization reflected here in the halls of Congress. And even though both sides have some sharply differ-ent views and ideologies, our job is still to find the common ground.Â” But common ground is scarce. This is a Congress that canÂ’t do the big stuff while even the small stuff, such as a one-year extension of student loan subsi-dies that passed in June, makes them sweat. Congress stumbled out of Washington for a five-week vaca-tion one day early on Thursday on a typical note: a GOP filibus-ter in the Senate of a biparti-san cybersecurity bill and the HouseÂ’s abandonment of a oneyear extension, as Republican leaders had planned, of food and farm policy. Senate Republicans were unhappy about being denied a chance to amend the cyberse-curity bill. House Republicans were unable to find party unity on food stamps and farm sub-sidies The House settled for a paltry restoration of expired disaster programs for livestock pro-ducers and tree farmers. The Senate wouldnÂ’t do even that, demanding instead a full five-year farm bill with 80 percent of it, or about $400 billion, devoted to food stamps. Congress breaks for 5 weeks, but much work undone

Every time it starts to dry out, we get an afternoon rain shower which puts the water right back. Its probably going to be another couple more weeks before it will be dry enough to open back up. High water levels and damaged equipment also forced county officials to keep Rum Island Park closed. The water is back down within the banks but until it recedes enough that we can actually make repairs to the wooden structures that enter the spring area, weve got to keep it closed for safety reasons, Pittman said. The wooden structures that enter the spring area and the steps at Rum Island Springs were damaged dur ing Tropical Storm Debby. Some of those (wooden structures) got damaged and broke with debris when the river was flood ed, Pittman said. Weve got all the debris removed and the park cleaned, but the water is still over those steps. Until the water drops down enough to where I can get in and repair the steps, weve got to keep the park closed. Pittman said it will be a matter of monitoring the river until county work crews are able to make the neces sary repairs at the park. The way the water is currently dropping, we hope within the next couple of weeks the park will also be opened, he said. Were checking the park every other day and just monitoring the levels of the river until we can get in there and fix it. REPTILES: Flooding keeps recreation area closed Continued From Page 1A any information about this person. Earlier in the day officers from the Lake City Police Department responded to neighborhoods in the Lake Montgomery area to assist the Columbia County Sheriffs Office investigating where Lee had crashed the alleged stolen car he was driving early Saturday morning and then fled to a wooded area near the lake. Police believe Lee then burglarized a couple of homes in the neighbor hood while trying to elude police. The second home we responded to, the residents were there and they found the subject (Lee) in their home and he was arrested, said Mike Lee, Lake City Police Department crime prevention officer and a public infor mation officer. More than 20 police vehicles were positioned along Grandview Avenue to areas around Lake Montgomery Avenue most of Saturday because Lee was on the run and had not been located. Later, K-9 units from the sher iffs office and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were called to track the suspect in a wooded area. Lee was captured just before 5 p.m. in a home near the woods at the intersection of Southwest Lakeview Avenue and Southwest Bali Lane, on the west side of Lake Montgomery. Lee was taken into custody and later taken from the scene in an ambulance. Officer Mike Lee said the suspect was taken to the hospital for minor injuries he suffered in the car crash before LCPD officers arrived at the scene. Lee was released from the hospital and taken to jail. ARREST: Daytona Beach car theft suspect caught Continued From Page 1A Conner remembered as giving person By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com Ralph Conner was memori alized this week after his life ended in an act of heroism. Conner, 30, drowned after diving into a pond overun with weeds to save the life of his 8-year-old stepdaughter. Conner and several chil dren were playing on a sub merged dock that led into the pond. The dock was covered over four feet high with water from recent flooding. Conners stepdaughter walked to the end of the dock and fell into deep water and Conner immediately dove in after her. His oldest stepdaughter swam away from the dock, his brother Dale Conner said. She panicked. When she started panicking, he dove in to save her. Conner managed to get his stepdaughter back on the dock but then he got caught up in the weeds. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office report said the children saw him come up for air twice before he sank into the pond. His stepdaughter ran to tell Dale Conner. His brother found Conner caught in the weeds on the edge of the dock. By the time I found him on the bottom of the pond, the paramedics were there, he said. Ralph Conner, a Lake City man who cared for livestock, had two children and three stepchildren. He would do anything for anybody, all you had to do is ask, his brother said. Dale Conner said his broth er was an easy-going man and a hard worker. He had no enemies, he said. His stepbrother Brandon Brown called Conner a great dude. He gave the boots off of his feet to me one time, Brown said. Brown said the family is very close. The brothers would fish, hunt and grill out in the yard together often. Brown said Conner never used charcoal when he grilled, hed use oak wood. He made the greatest stuffed pork chops, Brown said. Wed eat them right off the grill. Conners funeral was held on Friday afternoon. Family came from as far as North Dakota to pay homage to the man who died on July 21. No matter what life gave him he was always an up-spir ited person, Dale said. Its tragic. I am still lost.

Florida optimistic about new seasonAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Â— After a 7-6 campaign and their worst season since 1987, the Florida Gators realized their attitude needed to change. Players held their own practices and punished those who didnÂ’t attend with early morning running sessions. Gators coach Will Muschamp addressed the attitude change at FloridaÂ’s annual media day on Thursday. Â“As much as anything, some guys have bought into what weÂ’re trying to do,Â” Muschamp said. Â“Obviously, their way didnÂ’t work. They understand where we are heading with this program.Â” Florida begins training camp Friday with a new offensive coordinator, offen-sive line coach and strength coach. Sophomore quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel led the players-only practices. The two are com-peting for the starting job. Brissett called the quarter-back competition the big-gest opportunity of his life. Â“I feel really good about that position,Â” Muschamp said. Â“We have two really good players competing. TheyÂ’re going to make each other better, our offense better and our team bet-ter.Â” The offseason workouts gave the Gators a jumpstart UF aims to bounce back from worst year since Â’87. GATORS continued on 6BPhotos by BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterABOVE : Columbia High players show a group of campers the co rrect form for hitting a football sled at the 2012 Brian Allen Future Tiger Football Camp on Saturday in Lake City. BELOW : Campers Hakeem James (from left), Jasean Merrick, Peyton Robertson and Sirr Rollins work together to flip a tractor tire. Allen gives back with football camp Time to shut up and playT alk is cheap and Florida coach Will Muschamp will be the first to tell you that. Much of the focus at the University of FloridaÂ’s media day was about what the new offense will look like, but to those on the coaching staff, theyÂ’re more worried about what the win column will look like. Another 7-6 year wonÂ’t do it at the University of Florida. This is a team that talks about winning championships, not barely qualifying for a low-rate bowl game. But how does Florida get back to being the program it was under Steve Spurrier in the 90s and Urban Meyer prior to Muschamp? It starts with quarterback play and Muschamp likes both of his weapons. While there are areas of concern throughout the offense to be cautious over, Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel are not at the top of that list. Florida brought in quarterback guru and former Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease in the offseason to develop the sophomore passers and put Florida back on the offensive map. The quarterbacks must have targets though and thatÂ’s where Florida needs someone to emerge out of a group of highly-rated players that havenÂ’t done much as Gators. Andre Debose might hold the GatorsÂ’ record for kickoff returns with three, but he hasnÂ’t exactly matched that excitement in the receiving game. The most buzz has come from true freshman Latroy Pittman this summer, but how much can freshmen be counted upon to become impact players during their first year on the field? Media day was built to create excitement for the fans. It was built to highlight players and create buzz words, but that doesnÂ’t necessarily mean itÂ’s a good thing for this team. Muschamp doesnÂ’t come off as someone who craves the mediaÂ’s attention and thatÂ’s just how he should be. ItÂ’s not time for Florida to talk. ItÂ’s time to practice, sweat and get better. Most importantly, itÂ’s time to win again. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comThe best way to sustain continued success is to capture the heart of youth. Columbia head coach Brian Allen is doing just that with the 2012 Brian Allen Future Tigers Football Camp. Held Saturday at the high schoolÂ’s practice field, more than 100 future Tigers showed up to see what itÂ’s like to live a day in the life of a Columbia player. Â“We had about 100, but we want about 300,Â” Allen said. Â“We want kids to have something to look forward to. ItÂ’s something that I never had the opportunity to do growing up and is my way of giving back.Â” The day started with the future Tigers taking a tour of the teamÂ’s facilities. Â“We started with them watching film during reg-istration and then some of the older guys showed them around the facilities,Â” Allen said. Â“We showed them the weight room, had the jerseys hanging in the lockers and then took them through our usual Tuesday routine.Â” Future Tigers were able to meet the current Tigers from behind the facemask giving the younger genera-tion a face to put with the name they see on Friday nights. During the camp, current players even became coach-es for the day. Â“I think this is big for the young kids to interact with the players and itÂ’s also good for us, because we get to see them incorporate what weÂ’re teaching them,Â” Allen said. Â“We know our guys are paying attention, because now theyÂ’re teach-ing it. A couple of the guys will probably be coaches one day. Jayce (Barber), Felix (Woods) and even Wyndell Wallace were all getting into it. Derrick Brooks saw it in me at Florida State and I see it in them.Â” Future Tigers went through 21 stations in the weight room as Allen explained to them what muscles they were working before hitting the field. Six more stations awaited the players and the camp ended with a touch-football game. Allen delivered a message about the importance of representing the Tigers to the future players. Â“The Tiger paw is sacred,Â” he said. Allen also gave thanks to the sponsors and quarter-back club for helping put the camp on. Â“The camp was free for kids, but itÂ’s not free to put on,Â” he said. Â“We couldnÂ’t do it without our sponsors.Â”

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, AUGUST 5, 2012 3B%632576US men survive Olympic test, beat Lithuania, 99-94 By TOM WITHERSAssociated PressLONDON Â— When the moment arrived, the Americans responded. TheyÂ’re still unbeaten, but no longer untested. Pushed to the max by a fearless Lithuanian team smelling a world-shaking Olympic upset, the U.S. col-lection of basketball super-stars united as one. And LeBron James led the way. Two days after running and gunning to a record-shattering 83-point win, the U.S. was forced to play a possession-for-possession game in the fourth quar-ter in a 99-94 win over Lithuania. The Americans were in serious trouble until James Â— in his third Olympics Â— stepped up in the closing minutes. Â“It was like LeBron said, Â’I got this, IÂ’m doing this,Â” U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said. James scored 9 his 20 points in the final four min-utes for the U.S. (4-0), which had looked nearly invincible in thrashing Nigeria 156-73 on Thursday night while breaking several records. But the Americans were reminded that the path to a gold medal is loaded with traps and Lithuania nearly sprang one. Â“You want to get tested,Â” James said. Â“The best teams want to be tested. We love the competition. WeÂ’ve got some of the greatest com-petitors in our league, in this world, so you want to have a game where you feel like you were tested, and we had that today.Â” And then some. The U.S. trailed by two points with under six min-utes left before using a 15-4 run to put away Lithuania (1-3), which was seeking to duplicate its stunning win over the Americans in 2004 win at Athens, when the U.S. program dropped to its low point after decades of dominance. However, James, who was an Olympic rookie eight years ago, refused to allow it. The reigning MVP and a recently crowned NBA champion knocked down a 3-pointer from the top of the key, and after Paul stole the inbounds pass, James took a feed down the right side and delivered one of his trademark dunks, a basket that brought the American players off the bench and seemed to restore world basketball order. ASSOCIATED PRESSUSAÂ’s Lebron James (6) works the ball past LithuaniaÂ’s Renaldas Seibutis during a preliminary menÂ’s basketball game at the 2012 Summer O lympics on Saturday in London. After latest BCS woes, ACC looks for fresh startBy JOEDY McCREARYAssociated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. Â— The Atlantic Coast Conference is looking for a fresh start. The way the last few postseasons have ended, the beleaguered league could use one. The ACC sent two teams to the BCS for the first time in 2011 Â— but that just gave the league two chances to lose. Every touchdown allowed by Clemson in the Orange Bowl seemed to push the league closer to rock bot-tom and deliver yet another blow to the on-the-field rep-utation of a conference that dropped to 2-13 all-time in the BCS. So, after West VirginiaÂ’s 70-33 thumping of the Tigers, the ACC figures thereÂ’s nowhere to go but up. Â“They donÂ’t put two Ls because one got away from us,Â” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. Â“The bottom line is, (when) you win and when you lose, you have opportunities to learn and grow. ThatÂ’s what the off-seasonÂ’s about, and thatÂ’s what weÂ’ve done.Â” The ACC coaches hope thatÂ’s not only true for his Tigers, but the entire league Â— especially since it announced this offseason that it will keep sending a team to the Orange Bowl through the 2025 season. For years, conference leaders have been eager for one of its teams to remain in contention for a national championship and, by asso-ciation, keep the league nationally relevant. That responsibility usually falls to Virginia Tech, Miami, Florida State, Clemson. When they strug-gle, the rest of the ACC seems weak, too. Now itÂ’s probably up to the loaded Seminoles Â— who enter as the favorites for the second straight year Â— to carry that burden. Â“When you sign your letter of intent to FSU, thatÂ’s what you should expect Â— to always be the topic of conversation as far as having a great team, hav-ing great players, a win-ning team,Â” quarterback EJ Manuel said. Coach Jimbo FisherÂ’s first two seasons in charge in Tallahassee have been marked by close losses, dropping five games by a total 21 points since 2010. He knows his team has to find a way to win the tight ones if itÂ’s going to resem-ble the swaggering bunch that captured the ACCÂ’s last national title in 1999. The Seminoles will be without senior cornerback and punt return specialist Greg Reid, who was kicked off the team on Wednesday for a violation of team rules. Manuel says the team has worked on paying closer attention to details. After losing at least four games every year since 2004, Fisher says itÂ’s time to finally live up to those lofty expectations. Â“I think weÂ’re ready to do it. I think we can do it now, and I think itÂ’s something that we should do,Â” Fisher said. Â“I mean, thatÂ’s some-thing you strive for all the time. You go through the season and you deal with it, you have to play well, focus, eliminate the clutter, block everything out and prioritize.Â” ATLANTIC FLORIDA STATE Â— Key players: QB EJ Manuel, DE Brandon Jenkins, CB Xavier Rhodes.

ASSOCIATED PRESSClemson quarterback Tajh Boyd throws a pass on the firs t day of NCAA college football practice on Friday in Clem son, S.C. The defending ACC Champions open their 2012 season on Sept. 1 against Auburn in Atlanta, Ga. Associated PressThe finale was a formality, more a coronation than a contest. Michael Phelps headed into retirement the only way imaginable Â— with another gold medal. Reclaiming the lead with the trademark butterfly stroke he first debuted in the Olympics as a 15-year-old in Sydney a dozen years ago, Phelps won the 18th gold of a mind-boggling career in the 4x100-meter medley relay Saturday. Â“IÂ’ve been able to do everything that I wanted,Â” he said. When it was done, Phelps hugged his teammates Â— Matt Grevers, Brendan Hansen and Nathan Adrian Â— before heading off the deck for the final time in his suit. He waved to the crowd and smiled, clearly at peace with his decision to call it a career. And what a career it was! Phelps retires with twice as many golds as any other Olympian, and his total of 22 medals is easily the best mark, too. He can be quite proud of his final Olympics as well, even though there were times he had trouble staying motivated after winning a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Games four years ago. The 27-year-old could surely swim on for another Olympics, maybe two, but thereÂ’s really no point. Â“I told myself I never want to swim when IÂ’m 30,Â” Phelps said. Â“No offense to those people who are 30, but that was something I always said to myself, and that would be in three years. I just donÂ’t want to swim for those three years.Â” He hugged his longtime coach, Bob Bowman, who whispered three words that said it all, Â“I love you.Â” Their partnership was formed 16 years ago, when Bowman took a gangly, hyperactive kid with an extraordinary gift and helped turn him into a swimmer the likes of which the world had never seen. Â“Bob and I have somehow managed to do every single thing,Â” Phelps said. Â“If you can say that about your career, thereÂ’s no need to move forward. Time for other things.Â” Bouncing back from a disappointing first race in London, a fourth-place finish in the 400 individual med-ley, Phelps wound up with more medals than any other swimmer at the games: four golds and two silvers. Sounds familiar.Â“Honestly, the first race kind of took the pressure off,Â” Bowman said. Â“If itÂ’s not going to go too well, we should at least have fun while weÂ’re here. That helped us relax a little bit, then he started swimming well in the relays and he picked it up again.Â” Phelps adds to record ASSOCIATED PRESSUnited StatesÂ’ Michael Phelps gets out of the water after swi mming butterfly in the menÂ’s 4 X 100-meter medley relay at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park during the 2012 Summer Olympics, London, on Saturday.

Â— It was Tebow Time for the New York Jets in goal-line drills. The Jets provided a small glimpse for the first time during training camp into their plan for Tim Tebow on offense, as the backup quarterback ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to Josh Baker in a four-play sequence that got the crowd at SUNY Cortland fired up. Â“Yeah, I feel like IÂ’ve done that once or twice,Â” Tebow said with a big smile, Â“so it comes pretty natural. It was fun.Â” On one wildcat-style play, Tebow took a snap from the shotgun, quickly faked a handoff to Joe McKnight and zipped into the end zone from 2 yards out untouched on what Ryan called a faked Â“speed sweep.Â” Tebow had previously only been used in regular offensive plays and as the punt protector on special teams, but Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano have said heÂ’ll likely be used in a wild-cat-style package. Â“It was sort of (a wildcat play),Â” Tebow said. Â“It looks like thereÂ’s more gadgets and gizmos, but itÂ’s really just a power play that can stretch defenses. But, with the shift and with the motion, you can really stretch the defense hori-zontally.Â” Ryan yelled to the defense before the drills that Tebow was Â“liveÂ” Â— meaning he could be tackled if he left the pocket. Ryan said it was the first time in a practice that he made the quar-terback Â“live,Â” something Tebow also said he had never experienced. Â“I just got a little smile and thought it was going to be fun,Â” Tebow said. Â“Right before that, coach Sparano told me to keep it on the bootleg, so when (Ryan) said it was live, that made me smile.Â” Tebow scored on the bootleg on his first play at the goal line, and then threw a short touchdown pass to tight end Josh Baker on the next. After Terrance Ganaway fumbled on the third play, the Jets (No. 17 in the AP Pro32) showed the defense a wrinkle that opponents might have to prepare for. Â“Obviously, Tim, this was his best day of camp,Â” Ryan said. The Jets had kept their wildcat plans mostly under wraps since acquiring Tebow from Denver in March, but ESPN has been camped out all week show-ing live shots from practice Â— including the goal-line plays Thursday. Clearly, New York has a lot more in store for Tebow and itÂ’s likely much of that will be revealed during the regular season as the Jets game plan specifically for oppo-nents. Mark Sanchez, who led the first-team offense to two scores in four chances, real-izes the plans could include him leading the Jets down to the goal line and then being replaced by Tebow for the scoring opportunity. Â“WeÂ’ve got to get it in the end zone,Â” Sanchez said. Â“I donÂ’t care. Whatever we have to do, and coach Sparano is going to be the judge there on what exactly he wants. But if thatÂ’s what he wants, and thatÂ’s what puts it in the end zone, fine. WeÂ’ll drive it 99 yards and he can run it in. It doesnÂ’t matter.Â” It might seem unrealistic that a quarterback will be OK with coming off the field, especially when Sanchez has balked in the past when Ryan has given first-team snaps in practice to former backup Mark Brunell. Sanchez wants to make sure his rhythm is never affected, but insists he has a larger goal in mind. Â“ItÂ’s bigger than what one person on this team wants,Â” he said. Â“We really are in the business of winning and we have to be selfless, myself included.Â” And, he knows that could really pay off in goal-line situations. Â“If itÂ’s him, 1-on-1 with a defender and a tackler, my moneyÂ’s on Tim,Â” Sanchez said. Â“HeÂ’s got this will about him to put into the end zone.Â” Tebow is familiar with being used as a short-yard-age specialist, performing in that role at the University of Florida as the backup to Chris Leak during the GatorsÂ’ run to the national title in the 2006 season. Â“There was a lot of goalline, a lot of red zone,Â” he said. Â“I had a lot of oppor-tunities to play in a lot of big moments, key moments Â— fourth down, big games, big drives. I think my fresh-man year that really helped me just as far as the experi-ences of being in those big plays and being able to real-ize what those moments are like so when I came back for my sophomore year, I felt like I was a lot more prepared and ready to go.Â” Some fans and media have suggested that the Jets should always try for 2-point conversions after touchdowns now that TebowÂ’s around. Â“That might make some sense,Â” said Ryan, quick-ly adding that New York wonÂ’t, of course, line up for 2 each time they score. TebowÂ’s popularity off the field has been appar-ent since the day the Jets arrived in Cortland for the start of training camp last Thursday, when dozens of media converged on the small town in central New York. The fact a major net-work is providing live cov-erage of practices makes Sanchez shake his head. Â“Other than us and Denver, itÂ’s like nobody else is playing right now, which is crazy,Â” a smil-ing Sanchez said. Â“Oh my God, thereÂ’s 30 other teams. WhatÂ’s happening? ThatÂ’s just the nature of this year and the kind of draw Tim has and the kind of draw Peyton Manning has.Â” Sanchez said the team has done a good job of ignoring all of the potential outside distractions, adding that he has seen the Jets garner lots of attention since he was taken in the first round of the 2009 draft.

BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Floridas Omar Hunter laughs at a joke during the Gators media day on Thursday in Gainesville. on fall practice, Driskel said. Just being together will help us in the long run with unity and trusting one another, he said. It also helped just repping it. If you go from spring to fall with out doing anything, you are going to lose a little bit. We wanted to hit camp fast. The Gators enter camp with greater numbers on both sides of the ball. Due in large part to a lack of depth, Florida struggled last sea son against Southeastern Conference opponents and lost four straight to Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Georgia in the month of October. Muschamp and his staff now have the luxury of pushing more physical play in camp. Its hard to simulate game-day situations when you are only working one line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball, which was the case last year, Muschamp said. Thats not going to be the case this year. We are going to be able to do more things. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease expands the playbook for Florida. Muschamp said the for mer Boise State coordina tor brings more motion to the offense. Redshirt senior wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. noticed the changes between the offense run by ex-coordinator Charlie Weis and the Pease scheme. Coach Weis has a system and thats what he stuck to, Hammond said. With coach Pease, he brings in a different style and uses the ability the players have to create certain things, adjust his playbook and tweak it. In addition to the two sophomore quarterbacks on offense, the Gators return leading receiver Andre Debose for his junior season. With the Gators finishing eighth in the SEC in rush ing yards and the depar tures of Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, senior Mike Gillislee is expected to han dle the majority of carries. You have to create balance in this league, Muschamp said. If you become one dimensional in this league, it becomes very difficult to have suc cess regardless of where you are in the division. While the offense ranked 10th in the SEC in total yards per game, the defense held every opponent except three below 30 points. Senior middle linebacker Jon Bostic recognized the relationship between the offense and defense. I have a lot of confidence in our offense turning it around this year, because I knew they werent happy with themselves, Bostic said. They want to play better and improve off of last year. Going into this year, they are going to lean on us and we are going to lean on them. For us to win ball games, it will take both of us. Redshirt senior Sam Robey has suited up for four seasons. He played with Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin, but also John Brantley and Deonte Thompson. He cant wait for the results of a retooled coach ing staff and an improved mindset. Everything that they did over the summer and what we did ourselves as a team is really something that has never happened before, Robey said. It makes me really excited to go into fall and start fast. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Florida head coach Will Muschamp speaks with the media during the University of Floridas media day on Thursday in Gainesville. More photos appear on page 4B.

BANK continued on 2C NASA picks 3 firms to develop space taxis BY SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer WASHINGTON NASA picked three aerospace companies Friday to build small rocketships to take astronauts to the International Space Station. This is the third phase of NASAs efforts to get pri vate space companies to take over the job of the nowretired space shuttle. The companies will share more than $1.1 billion. Two of the ships are capsules like in the Apollo era and the third is closer in design to the space shuttle. Once the spaceships are built, NASA plans to hire the private companies to taxi astronauts into space within five years. Until they are ready, NASA is paying Russia about $63 million per astronaut to do the job. In a statement, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said the move will help keep us on track to tend the outsourcing of human spaceflight. NASA hopes that by having private firms ferry astro nauts into low Earth orbit, it can focus on larger longterm goals, like sending crews to a nearby asteroid and eventually Mars. The private companies can also make money in tourism and other non-NASA business. The three companies are the Boeing Co. of Houston, Space Exploration Technologies, called SpaceX, of 1CColumbia Inc.

Peoples State Bank has two Columbia County offices, its main branch is at 350 SW Main Boulevard and there is another office at 3882 West U.S. Highway 90 on the west side of town. BANK: Green is new president Continued From Page 1C Hawthorne, Calif., and Sierra Nevada Corp. of Louisville, Colo. They are quite differ ent companies. Boeing is one of the oldest and larg est space companies with a long history of building and launching rockets and working for NASA, going back to the Mercury days. SpaceX is a relatively new company started by Elon Musk, who helped cre ate PayPal and runs the electric car company Tesla Motors. Sierra Nevada has been in the space business for 25 years but mostly on a much smaller scale than Boeing. NASAs commercial crew development program started with seven compa nies. The other companies that were not chosen can still build private rocket ships and NASA still has the option to hire them to ferry astronauts at a later date, NASA spokesman Trent Perrotto said. Boeing is slated to get the most money, $460 million for its seven-person CST-100 capsule. It would launch on an Atlas rocket, with the first test flight 2016. The com pany wont say how much it would charge NASA per seat, but it will be significant ly lower than the Russian price, said John Mulholland, Boeing vice president. He said Boeings long experi ence in working with NASA on human flight gives it a leg up on its competitors. SpaceX is already in the lead in the private space race. The company earlier this year used their Falcon rock et to launch their Dragon capsule into orbit. It docked with the space station and successfully delivered cargo. NASA plans to give the com pany $440 million. The cap sule holds seven people and will have its first test launch with people in 2015, said spokeswoman Kirstin Brost Grantham. The company will charge NASA about $20 million per seat, she said. Sierra Nevadas mini-shut tle crew vehicle called Dream Chaser carries seven people and could be flown without a pilot. NASA would give them $212.5 million. The ship is based on an old NASA test ship design but hasnt flown as much as SpaceXs Dragon. It may appear as though we are behind but in many ways we are more mature, said Sierra Nevada space chief Mark Sirangelo. Like Boeings Mulholland, he said his firm will charge NASA less than the Russians, but wont give a specific price.

This portion of Old Florida was indeed Â“forgottenÂ” during the period when much of North FloridaÂ’s coastline was developed...and sub-sequently over-developed. The Forgotten Coast is a special place today, more for what has been pre-served than for what has been developed. Pristine bays, sugar white beaches, coastal marshlands, estuar-ies rich with sea life, and barrier islands with impres-sive dune formations. Along this stretch of the Florida Panhandle, little fishing villages dot the coast and there are cozy dining spots and quirky oyster joints along the way that offer some of the freshest seafood available. Mary Kay has spent many a summer at St. Teresa Beach, located between Panacea and Carrabelle, and on a recent weekend visit, she hap-pened upon The Seineyard Restaurant. Newly opened at Summer Camp, a St. Joe Company beach develop-ment, The Seineyard is one of just a few restaurants within 10 miles of their family beach house. This little gem of a restaurant, owned by Sam and Starr Dunlap, is truly a family run business that makes you feel warm and welcome the minute you walk through the door. The dcor is simple, with ample seating both inside and on the deck overlook-ing the pool and gulf. On our recent trip, we had a table full of family, so we took advantage of their varied offerings from sea-food, burgers and steaks. Starting out our meal we had each had a house salad filled with fresh greens, onion, and delicious sweet pickled pepper strips. Their dressings are home-made; the house garlic par-mesan is out of this world! The 12 oz Rib-Eye steak was grilled on the flat-top to our medium-rare liking and had a nice, mild garlic flavor and served up with crispy fries. Mary KayÂ’s Mom had the Jr. Seafood Platter that featured always fresh, local fried shrimp, scal-lops, grouper and oysters. Served with creamy, fresh chopped (no bag mix here) coleslaw, decadent cheese grits and light and airy hush puppies dotted with sweet corn, this was more than she bargained forÂ…doggie bag required. On special that evening, were fried Grouper Buddies visit the Forgotten Coast By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comA group of Columbia County middle schoolers have stomped, clapped and danced their way to a national championship. Willing to practice in parking lots and sell doughnuts to travel, the Eccentric S.O.U.L. Step Team won first place at the Break the Stage National Youth Step Competition in Orlando in July. S.O.U.L, which stands for Steppers Overcoming Undeniable Limitations, includes team members Gerald Smith, Lyndell Jones, Tyrone Brown, DreÂ’Mond Higgins, Bruce Baker, Aneia Henry, Aniya Henry, Rashaela Bradley, Dominique Wilkes, Bree Marshall, Abrianna Morrow, Caitlin Clemons, Nazje Murray, Brooklyn Kelly, Taylor Jennings, Jaynae Sheppard, Andrea Sheppard, Jawan Dunmore, Ashonte Pate, Princess Brown, The national title is one of several wins for the team. They placed first at regional competitions in December and February. In March they placed third in the state competition. Columbia High SchoolÂ’s step team placed fourth in the high school division of the national competition. Â“They are really hardworking kids,Â” and De-Shazo Wilkinson, team coach and Richardson Middle School teacher. Wilkinson said the teamÂ’s mission is to uplift the community through stepping and prepare stu-dents to become influen-tial, positive, and educated members of the commu-nity. S.O.U.L members have practiced since October, often for two hours every day after school, he said. Â“WeÂ’ve been through a lot,Â” Wilkinson said. When the step program was taken out of RMS, parents wanted to keep it going as a community team, including students at Lake City Middle School too, he said. So motivated to nail their performances, the team even practiced in a parking lot outside the school. They used a multipurpose room at Niblack Elementary too, but are still looking for a perma-nent place to practice, Wilkinson said. Â“They are willing to practice anywhere because they love stepping,Â” he said. Wilkinson said team members must maintain good grades and not get into trouble to be on the team. Working on routines and keeping up grades keeps the middle school-ers out of trouble, he said. Wilkinson, who used to step with his college fra-ternity, even took the team to see step shows at the University of Florida and the University of Central Florida. Â“We are trying to teach them a little bit more than running around, going to school and getting into trouble on the weekend,Â” he said. After coming in first twice, the team got cocky and fell to third, he said. The loss made the stu-dents realize they needed to work harder for the national title, he said. Â“After that, they were like Â‘LetÂ’s go,Â’Â” he said. It was the students who did the footwork to raise money and find sponsor-ships for competitions, he said. Â“They were motivated to work. They deserved it,Â” he said. For each competition the team learned and per-fected a new eight to 10 minute routine, he said. The intensity and length of the shows wear the stu-dents out, he said. Â“After they get off stage, they usually fall to the ground,Â” he said. S.O.U.L. performed during a community event at Memorial Stadium this summer and has volun-teered at an area nursing home and performed for the residents, he said. When school starts, Wilkinson said the team will host tryouts for new members hoping to bring home another national championship. Â“They love being on stage,Â” he said. Wilkinson said a special thank you goes to assistant coach JaÂ’Lacia Queen and sponsors Colondra Wise, New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, Pastor and Mrs. Alvin Baker, Al Nelson, Rodger Hadley, Trinity Methodist Church, and Helen Beaty. Local team steps to national title COURTESY Eccentric S.O.U.L. Step Team, made up of Columbia County mid dle schoolers, poses with their first place trophy in Jul y at the Break the Stage National Youth Step Competition in Orlando Students must keep up grades and a good behavior reco rd to be part of the team, which earned several titles during the last school year. W e can experience some of the hot-test days of summer in August, but maybe we will be lucky this year. Who knows? Stranger things have happened recently where our weather is concerned. August is that Â‘in betweenÂ’ month for growing vegetables, so some extra decent time to work in the garden might really pay off. Right now you can set out the last plantings of your warm weather crops as well the first plantings of some cool weather crops. As one season of growing winds down, we are transitioning right into the next one. Remember to rotate crop families for cultural insect and nematode control. This means that you should only plant the same family vegetables (like peppers or tomatoes, broccoli or cau-liflower) in the same spot in the garden every third season. Keep changing so soil pests wonÂ’t build up populations. The warm season vegetables that you can plant for a final 2012 crop are snap beans, lima bean, sweet corn, cucumbers, southern peas, peppers, tomatoes, pumpkins, squash, and watermelon. Knowing which vegetables to grow is only the start, however. Plant varieties will not perform the same under different growing condi-tions and we all know that Florida has high heat and humidity. The University of Florida has done research to find which varieties will produce the best in our Florida climate. To be suc-cessful, grow varieties that are recommended by that research. The first of the cool season vegetables can now be started, also. The plants to begin seeding out now are collards, bunching onions, shallots and turnips. The first of broccoli and cauliflower can also be set out. Wait another month for bulbing onions, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. For more information on plant families and recommended varieties, read Â‘Florida Vegetable Gardening GuideÂ’ at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/vh021 or stop at the Extension office for a copy. Besides working in the vegetable garden in August, there are other gardening chores to do. Pinch back the grow-ing tips of mums and poin-settias now so they have time to branch out and set buds for later. If the oldest fronds on your palms are yellowing, they probably are in need of magnesium, an important element for palms. Epsom salts from the drug store will remedy this defi-ciency. Perennial and annual flowers should be dead-headed (old blooms removed) to clean them up and get another possible flush of blooms. A plant lives to produce seeds, so if you keep plucking off the faded blooms, the response is often more bloom production. Take off only the old blooms if you deadhead crepe myrtle or other woody plants because pruning wood stimulates unwanted plant growth.

Â— Chance McKibben, 14, started dabbling in mobile app design about two years ago when he first got a Mac. His first app helped his brother, a photographer, show clients proofs on the go. Then last semester, he got to thinking that his own school district, Fort Wayne Community Schools, should have an app. He put his mind to work, developing the tools that would allow parents access school supply lists, calendars and other information on their smart-phones and other mobile devices. When he was finished, he sent out a mass email with screenshots of his new app to FWCS officials at Grile Administration Building. Five minutes later, he ended up in his principalÂ’s office for a chat about how not to use district email addresses, and about how to put his skills to work. Several months later, after a bit of input from FWCS officials, McKibbbenÂ’s app went live for all to see. FWCS unveiled McKibbenÂ’s free app Wednesday and praised him for his creation. Â“We think itÂ’s a big deal when an eighth-grader can provide so much service to the entire community,Â” said FWCS Superintendent Wendy Robinson, who called McKibbenÂ’s accom-plishment amazing. After downloading the app, people can use it to check school supply lists, calendars, lunch menus, grades and more, accord-ing to FWCS officials. The app will also send alerts about weather delays, cancellations and other important announce-ments. Â“ItÂ’s making the district mobile,Â” said McKibben, who brought an iPad to the news conference to showcase his app. Â“ItÂ’s amazing how I can put the district on everyoneÂ’s device.Â” District officials said the app will make information more accessible to people in the district, and perhaps eventually cut down on paper costs associated with distributing the infor-mation in other ways. While they said some districts have paid up to $20,000 for the creation of a similar app, FWCS officials said they paid McKibben less than $1,000. It can be used on iPhones, iPads, Androids and other devices. McKibben recently started Apple App Factory, a mobile app development company. He hopes to help local businesses find ways of making their company mobile. Before McKibbenÂ’s app was approved, he had to submit it to Apple for a two-week examination.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 5, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 By ALICIA CHANG AP Science Writer PASADENA, Calif. Its NASAs most ambitious and expensive Mars mis sion yet and it begins with the red planet arrival late Sunday of the smart est interplanetary rover ever built. Also the most athletic. Like an Olympic gym nast, it needs to stick the landing. It wont be easy. The complicated touchdown NASA designed for the Curiosity rover is so risky its been described as seven minutes of terror the time it takes to go from 13,000 mph to a com plete stop. Scientists and engineers will be waiting anxiously 154 million miles away as the spacecraft plunges through Mars thin atmo sphere, and in a new twist, attempts to slowly lower the rover to the bottom of a crater with cables. By the time Earthlings receive first word of its fate, it will have planted six wheels on the ground or tumbled itself into a metal graveyard. If it succeeds, a video camera aboard the rover will have captured the most dramatic minutes for the first filming of a land ing on another planet. It would be a major technological step for ward if it works. Its a big gamble, said American University space policy analyst Howard McCurdy. The future direction of Mars exploration is hang ing on the outcome of this $2.5 billion science project to determine whether the environment was once suitable for microbes to live. Previous missions have found ice and signs that water once flowed. Curiosity will drill into rocks and soil in search of carbon and other ele ments. Named for the Roman god of war, Mars is unforgiving with a hostile history of swallowing man-made spacecraft. Its tough to fly there and even tougher to touch down. More than half of human itys attempts to land on Mars have ended in disaster. Only the U.S. has tasted success, but theres no guarantee this time. Youve done everything that you can think of to ensure mission success, but Mars can still throw you a curve, said former NASA Mars czar Scott Hubbard who now teaches at Stanford University. The Mini Cooper-sized spacecraft traveled 8? months to reach Mars. In a sort of celestial acrobat ics, Curiosity will twist, turn and perform other maneuvers throughout the seven-minute thrill ride to the surface. Why is NASA attempt ing such a daredevil move? It had little choice. Earlier spacecraft dropped to the Martian surface like a rock, swaddled in airbags, and bounced to a stop. Such was the case with the much smaller and lighter rovers Spirit and Opportunity in 2004. At nearly 2,000 pounds, Curiosity is too heavy, so engineers had to come up with a new way to land. Friction from the thin atmosphere isnt enough to slow down the space craft without some help. During its fiery plunge, Curiosity will brake by executing a series of S-curves similar to how the space shuttle re-entered Earths atmo sphere. At 900 mph, it will unfurl its huge parachute. It then will shed the heat shield that took the brunt of the atmospheric friction and switch on its groundsensing radar. A mile from the surface, Curiosity will jettison the parachute and fire up its rocket-powered backpack to slow it down until it hov ers. Cables will unspool from the backpack and slowly lower the rover at less than 2 mph. The cables keep the rocket engines from getting too close and kicking up dust. Even if the intricate cho reography goes accord ing to script, a freak dust storm, sudden gust of wind or other problem can mar the landing. The degree of difficulty is above a 10, said Adam Steltzner, an engineer at NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which man ages the mission. It takes 14 minutes for radio signals on Mars to travel to Earth. The lag means Curiosity will already be alive or dead by the time mission control finds out. The rovers landing target is Gale Crater near the Martian equator. Its an ancient depres sion about the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined with a 3-mile-high mountain ris ing from the center of the crater floor. Scientists know Gale was once waterlogged. Images from space reveal mineral signatures of clays and sulfate salts, which form in the pres ence of water, in older layers near the bottom of the mountain. During its two-year exploration, the pluto nium-powered Curiosity will climb the lower mountain flanks to probe the deposits. As sophis ticated as the rover is, it cannot search for life. Instead, it carries a tool box including a power drill, rock-zapping laser and mobile chemistry lab to sniff for organic com pounds, considered the chemical building blocks of life. It also has cameras to take panoramic photos. Humans have been mesmerized by the fourth rock from the sun since the 19th century when American astronomer Percival Lowell, peered through a telescopethe orized that intelligent beings carved what looked like irrigation canals.

By JOCELYN NOVECKAP National WriterNEW YORK Â— Only 11 years after her death, Elton John sang his ode to Marilyn Monroe. Â“And I would have liked to have known you, but I was just a kid,Â” went the lyrics. Â“Your candle burned out long before your leg-end ever did.Â” What John didnÂ’t know was how much truer his words would ring a few decades later. Monroe passed away a halfcentury ago this Sunday, a murky death that remains one of HollywoodÂ’s most tantalizing mysteries. But look around: Her legend lives on, more vibrantly than ever. In a development this fiercely ambitious actress surely would have appreciated, the 1950Â’s bombshell has become a 21st-century pop culture phe-nomenon. Just flip through a celebrity magazine: Some of-the-moment young starlet or pop singer will be channeling (or outright appropriating) those platinum locks, the bright red lips, moist and slightly parted, and that joyously, almost defiantly curvy figure, sheathed in something skin-tight and glamorous. Was that Marilyn on the red carpet at last yearÂ’s Teen Choice Awards? No, it was Taylor Swift, wearing a white halter-style dress just like MarilynÂ’s in Â“The Seven Year Itch,Â” in which the actress stood atop a subway grate and let the breeze of a passing train lift her skirts. (Oh, and that dress? It sold at auction last year for a mind-boggling $5.6 million, including commis-sion.) Was that Marilyn in the Dolce & Gabbana ad a while back? No, it was Scarlett Johansson, all white-blonde hair and ruby lips. And there was Charlize Theron in a Dior ad last year, meeting up with the real Marilyn, not to mention Marlene Dietrich and Grace Kelly, via CGI. Magazine spreads have featured Nicole Kidman, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, Michelle Williams, Viola Davis and others having their Marilyn moment. Madonna, of course, has famously appropriated MonroeÂ’s look into her image. So have singers Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani. In June, on what would have been MarilynÂ’s 86th birthday, Lady Gaga tweeted Â“Happy Birthday Marilyn Â— TheyÂ’ll never take our blonde hair and lipstick,Â” along with a picture of herself, Monroe-like. Nicki Minaj says sheÂ’s Â“obsessed with Marilyn Monroe.Â” On the big screen, actress Williams earned an Oscar nomination for her moving por-trayal of Monroe in Â“My Week With Marilyn.Â” And one of TVÂ’s most popular new shows is Â“SmashÂ” on NBC, which follows a Broadway musical based on MarilynÂ’s life, with two actresses competing to play her. Heck, thereÂ’s even been a giant Marilyn traversing the country: A 26-foot-tall, 34,000-pound statue of the actress, white dress billowing and undies showing, by artist Seward Johnson, now resting in Palm Springs, Calif. And there are plans for much more Â— thanks to the purchase in late 2010 of MonroeÂ’s estate, which includes among other things her name and image Â— by Authentic Brands Group and its partner, NECA. The com-panyÂ’s CEO, Jamie Salter, says he aims to upgrade the Marilyn brand by moving away from cheap souvenirs and developing Marilyn-themed cosmetic lines, spas and salons, sportswear, swimwear, footwear, handbags and more. There are even plans for Â— wait for it Â— the inevitable Marilyn Monroe reality show, in which young women would com-pete to become a new Hollywood icon. But just what is the secret of MarilynÂ’s enduring appeal? It depends on whom you ask Â— and thatÂ’s fitting, really, because Marilyn, more than other iconic celebrities, was different things to different people. There was, most simply, Marilyn the actress Â— a Marilyn that often got lost in all the hype, despite her desperate aspirations to be taken seriously. Film histo-rian Leonard Maltin laments that many people know Marilyn Â“as an image and an icon,Â” but not as an actress. Monroe showed off her dramatic chops in Â“The Misfits,Â” for example, and Â“Bus Stop.Â” But she is probably best remem-bered for her delightful comic turns in Â“Gentlemen Prefer BlondesÂ” as the gold-digging Lorelei Lee who sang Â“Diamonds Are a GirlÂ’s Best FriendÂ” in that classic pink gown; as the sensu-ous but ditzy Girl in Â“The Seven Year ItchÂ”; and as sexy band singer Sugar Kane in Â“Some Like it Hot.Â” Â“Marilyn just leaps off the screen,Â” says Maltin. Â“She has a luminosity that transcends everything else.Â” Still, an entire younger generation is enamored of her for something completely different, says Brandon Holley, editor in chief of Lucky magazine, which draws women in their 20s and 30s. Â“I think most women under 40 havenÂ’t seen her movies,Â” Holley says. Â“For them, sheÂ’s a style type Â— the ultimate hourglass figure. And a lot of women iden-tify with that.Â” Christopher Nickens agrees. Â“Marilyn was the epitome of a certain kind of feminine ideal,Â” says the co-author of the recent-ly released Â“Marilyn in Fashion,Â” a rare look at MonroeÂ’s influence in that field. Her key fashion leg-acy, he says, was to bring bodyconscious clothes into everyday life, with elegance. Though she wasnÂ’t seen as a fashion icon during her lifetime, Nickens thinks Marilyn shared something with other style icons like Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn. Â“They didnÂ’t follow trends,Â” he says. Â“ItÂ’s about knowing your-self and what works for you, and having that confidence.Â” Confidence isnÂ’t necessarily something one associates with Monroe, of course. In that Elton John song, Â“Candle in the Wind,Â” sheÂ’s a beautiful innocent victim-ized by a terrible Hollywood machine Â— people who Â“whis-pered into your brainÂ” and Â“set you on the treadmillÂ” and Â“made you change your name.Â” That falls into a familiar victim narrative about Monroe, who was indeed victimized as a young girl, according to multiple biographers. Born Norma Jeane Mortenson in 1926, she spent much of her childhood in foster homes, and there are allegations she suffered sexual abuse. But a victim of Hollywood? MonroeÂ’s latest biographer, Lois Banner, begs to differ. She says Monroe the movie star Â“was a constructed imageÂ” Â— one the actress herself worked very hard to invent, from the dyed hair (Norma Jeane was a brunette), to the makeup, that breathy voice, and the famous Â“wiggle walk.Â” And her dumb blonde screen image? Nothing like her, says Banner, a professor of history and gender studies at the University of Southern California. Â“She was extremely intelligent.Â” But why has MarilynÂ’s appeal only gotten stronger? Â“First of all, she died very young,Â” says Banner, freezing her image for eternity. But another reason is the existence of thousands of photographs of Marilyn, bursting with life. Â“SheÂ’s conceivably the most photographed person of the 20th century,Â” says Banner. The authorÂ’s third reason is more cynical: Â“ThereÂ’s a lot of people making money off her,Â” she says. Which brings us back to Salter, whose company is also using social networking to court a young consumer base for the Marilyn brand. On Facebook, Marilyn has three million-plus fans, 70 percent of them under the age of 24. She also has some 53,000 Twitter fol-lowers. SalterÂ’s brand vision? Â“To seduce the world with products that capture the iconic personality, style, glamour and elegance of the legendary actress,Â” according to the promotional materials. Â“Look at what Marilyn was,Â” Salter says in a telephone inter-view. Â“SheÂ’s a total fashion icon. She invented the red carpet. She knew her brand.Â” Â“IÂ’ve got the best model in the whole world.Â” Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 5, 2012 3D'/,)( Star power 50 years on, Marilyn still shines brightMarilyn Monroe is shown wearing a knife-pleated gold lam gown made from Â“one complete circle of fabric.Â” She wore this dress in Â“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.Â” Monr oe passed away a half-century ago this week, a murky death that remains one of HollywoodÂ’s most tantalizing mys teries.ASSOCIATED PRESS By CAROLYN THOMPSONAssociated PressBUFFALO, N.Y. Â— They got hitched while still in their teens, divorced 20 years and four children later, and are get-ting remarried after nearly a half-century apart. For Lena Henderson and Roland Davis, both 85 years old, the second time around is finally here. The couple plans to get married again on Saturday, with four gen-erations on hand to see it happen. Â“ItÂ’s every childÂ’s dream, every child who has ever been in a family where divorce has occurred, that your parents would come back together,Â” their young-est daughter, Renita Chadwick, said Tuesday as wedding preparations were in full swing. Â“We are all so ridiculously excited. WeÂ’re like little children again,Â” said Chadwick, herself a grandmother. Henderson and Davis met as teenagers in Chattanooga, Tenn., and were married by a justice of the peace. There was no reception or honeymoon. Â“Oh no,Â” Henderson recalled with a laugh. Â“He went to work and I went home.Â” Davis was a hotel bellhop at the time, about to begin a career in the mili-tary. This time around, a church wedding is planned, at Elim Christian Fellowship Church in Buffalo, followed by a recep-tion at an Amherst restaurant. Still no honeymoon trip, though.Â“IÂ’m just happy that weÂ’re here,Â” said Davis, who recently moved to suburban Buffalo from Colorado, where he was living alone following the death of his second wife in January. Henderson also was widowed after re-marrying. Davis proposed to Henderson over the phone around Easter and she accepted, even though they hadnÂ’t seen each other since a family funeral in 1996. Before that, the two hadnÂ’t been face-to-face since splitting up in 1964, though they had stayed in touch and kept up with each otherÂ’s lives through the children. Couple to remarry 48 years after divorce Roland Davis and Lena Henderson, both 85, pose for a ph oto in West Seneca, N.Y., Tuesday, July 31, 2012. They got married while still in their teens divorced 20 years later and are getting remarried on Saturday, August 4, after nearly a half-c entury apart.ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK Â— J.K.

DEAR ABBY: IÂ’m becoming increasingly concerned about my wife, Â“Traci,Â” and her influence over our 3-year-old son, Â“Grant.Â” Over the last few months, Traci has been buying Grant more and more femi-nine clothing. IÂ’m OK with a pink shirt now and then, but lately it has gotten out of hand. She has been close to dressing Grant in drag. My wife says not to take it so seriously, but it bothers me when people tell us we have a Â“lovely little girl.Â” IÂ’m worried that what my wife is doing will have an adverse effect on my son, but I need to know if IÂ’m overre-acting. -ITÂ’S A BOY! DEAR ITÂ’S A BOY!: My experts tell me that there is no data that demonstrates what your wife is doing will cause gender confusion in your son. WhatÂ’s important is that you talk to her and express your concerns pri-vately. Your little boy is at an age where he can sense stress in your marriage, and THAT could cause him prob-lems later on. More impor-tant than what clothes heÂ’s wearing is decreasing the level of stress on the boy. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: IÂ’m dating a man who is genuine, considerate, thoughtful, humble, responsible, committed to his family, and we have great physical chemis-try. Unfortunately, there is no intellectual/social Â“con-nection.Â” We do share interests in the outdoors and our faith. I feel emotionally secure with him and keep wondering if IÂ’m being overly critical or choosing to stay in a rela-tionship out of fear of not finding someone better in time to start a family. (IÂ’m in my early 30s.) Please advise. -INDECISIVE IN PLEASANTON, CALIF. DEAR INDECISIVE: To be frank, no one person has Â“everything.Â” If intellec-tual stimulation is the quality thatÂ’s most important to you, then the man you have been dating isnÂ’t the one for you. The fine qualities you listed would weigh heavily in his favor with many women. What you must ask yourself is whether or not you can be with him and find intellectual stimulation elsewhere when you feel you need it. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have four grown children between the ages of 21 and 25. For years I had a career, supported them financially and put them through college and trade schools. I remarried last January. My youngest daughter now says my kids are no longer No. 1 in my life and she will no longer speak to me. I told her my husband and all my children will always be No. 1 -just in a different way. SheÂ’s having a baby soon and hasnÂ’t included me in her life since January. Mind you, the baby is from a drug cartel man and they both have felonies. IÂ’m torn between getting on with my life or trying to reach out to her with hugs and kisses every now and then via snail mail. She has blocked me on Facebook and changed her cellphone number. Any suggestions? -TORN IN TUCSON DEAR TORN: Yes. Get on with your life. On her birth-day and at Christmas send cards to let her know you love her and are thinking of her. When she needs some-thing, sheÂ’ll contact you. Until then, donÂ’t hold your breath. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Face any challenge head-on. You will impress with your ability to handle whatever comes your way. Expect people from your past to surface. Greater partnership stability is apparent. Physical changes will be pleasing. Love is on the rise. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Work to get ahead. Putting in extra hours will help you avoid a sticky situation at home or with someone expecting too much of you. A surprise you are working on will help you build a better relationship with someone special. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): DonÂ’t take on addition-al responsibilities when itÂ’s important to honor prior commitments. Love and romance may occupy your time, but be leery of any-one offering something too good to be true. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Plan a fun day doing the things you enjoy most. Your intuition will be stel-lar, and the choices you make regarding the people and places you visit will help you make decisions about your own future and the direction you should consider. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Change will be your moti-vator. Surround yourself with creative people work-ing toward a similar goal. Taking part in something you believe in will be grati-fying, but donÂ’t feel obli-gated to spend or donate when hands-on help is all thatÂ’s required. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Prepare to do things alone if thatÂ’s what will help you complete a task. A personal problem with an emotional partner can lead to health issues. DonÂ’t worry about something you cannot change. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your charm and outgoing persona will attract attention. Love and romance, coupled with travel and learning, will lead to exciting encoun-ters. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Discussions with friends will help you make a decision that has eluded you in the past. Let your imagination lead the way. More action and less talk will be your ticket to suc-cess. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Move forward. Luck is in your corner. Focus on contracts, settle-ments and money matters. Look at your talents and you will come up with an idea that will enable you to offer your services at a premium. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): DonÂ’t let someone elseÂ’s problems hold you back. Size up your situ-ation and separate your emotions from the equa-tion. You have to be practi-cal, even if it means letting someone down. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look at where your money is going. A new budget will help you get back on track. Being less generous will be a good place to begin. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Impulsive emotional reactions can be a benefit in the end. Take a moment to consider who has been helpful and who hasnÂ’t. It may be time to make personal changes that will improve your life mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 One of six World Cup qualifying zones 5 Tickles11 Visit15 Summer getaway19 Pedigree alternative 20 Relative of a crow21 Shade darker than azure 22 Gelatin substitute*HWDQLQVLGHORRN DWRXUERRWK(Buffalo, 1901) &RPHE\DQGFKDW DWRXUERRWK(Philadelphia,1876) :KLWH5DEELWVVRQJ LQ$OLFHLQ:RQGHUODQG 28 Do a pit job30 Early 20th-century Modernist 31 Whiz32 Two-time world figure skatingchamp Slutskaya 33 Card34 Back35 Thruway warning38 Double-check, in a way
