SUNDAYEDITION Vol. 138, No. 143 1D 1B 1A Ballot questions continue By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County property owners will notice two proposed millage rate increases on their 2012 TRIM (Truth In Millage) notices. TRIM notices are only proposed millage rates for the upcoming fiscal year. One, officials say, is a formality, but another may require property owners to cough up much more in taxes for one of the countyÂ’s taxing authorities. The Lake Shore Hospital Authority is proposing to raise its property tax millage rate from 0.962 in 2011 to 1.500 in 2012. The increase would actually restore the Hospital AuthorityÂ’s millage rate to its normal operating level of 1.5 mills that it has had for years. The authority rolled back its millage in 2010 to 0.962 to give relief to county taxpayers, according to LSHA Executive Director Jack Berry. If the millage rate is restored to 1.5 mills, after computations, property owners in Columbia County will pay the increase on the Lake Shore Hospital Authority line item of their tax bill. Berry said during the two years of the millage rollback, the Hospital Authority spent $1 million annually from its reserve account to maintain indigent care expense. The authorityÂ’s reserves canÂ’t handle any more drain, he said. Â“I think that our reserves are down now to around $5 million, which I think is as low as we need to go,Â” he said. Â“If something should happen where we had to take over the hospital again that would give us enough funds to run the hospital for about six months until we found somebody to come in and run it. WeÂ’re not borrowing money. WeÂ’ve already collected the money, we need to hang on to this and go back to the 1.5 mill (levy), which our contract with the hospital requires us to do and move for-ward. ThatÂ’s my recommendation to the board. Â“Everybody loved it when we rolled that millage back. Now itÂ’s time to put it back to its original level. WeÂ’ve got to stop dipping into our piggy bank.Â” Although Berry has made the proposal to the Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board, the proposal has not been approved by board mem-bers. The board is slated to have a budget work-shop following its 5:15 p.m. meeting Monday. Â“All of the money collected from this millage goes to pay for indigent care in Columbia County Â— about $3 million a year,Â” Berry said. If the millage rate is restored to 1.5 mills, propBy HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.com A total of 5,193 voters cast ballots in the county during the eight days of early vot-ing for the primary election, according to the Supervisor of Elections office. Of this number, 4,430 voters cast ballots in Lake City and 763 voted in Fort White. Early voting totals were released when the polls closed at 7 p.m., Saturday. On Friday, 22 additional instances where voter addresses did not match the appropriate voting district were identified by county officials since the initial 118 sur-faced on Thursday. Of the new instances found, three voters cast incorrect ballots. All totaled, 140 voter addresses were categorized in the wrong district and 21 ballots were cast incorrectly. Â“We went back and we looked over them and we found those and thatÂ’s all I can tell you,Â” Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne said. The mismatched ballots were identified for Dist. 1 and Dist. 5 in the county commission race as well as Dist. 2 and Dist. 5 in the school board race. Horne called an emergency meeting Thursday afternoon to discuss the issue with candidates affected by the discrepanSchool bell tolls HospitalAuthoritymay jumptax bill to 1.5 mills Mitt picks Ryan, but who is this guy? By BRIAN BAKST and TODD RICHMONDAssociated PressJANESVILLE, Wis. Â— Even before Wisconsin sent Paul Ryan to Congress, he was meticulously carv-ing a path that seemed to point only upward. As a young Capitol Hill staffer, he impressed Republican lawmak-ers with his hustle and intellectual curiosity. He blended quickly with an elite crop of conservative thinkers. By his 30s, he was a congressman on his way to becoming a GOP name brand with his push-the-edge budget proposals. RyanÂ’s climb reached new heights Saturday when Republican presiden-tial nominee Mitt Romney announced him as his running mate. Â“MittÂ’s Choice for VP is Paul Ryan,Â” said a phone app RomneyÂ’s team cre-ated to spread the word to support-ers. As the chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan gives Romney a link to Capitol Hill lead-ership and underscores RomneyÂ’s effort to make the election a ref-erendum on the nationÂ’s economic course. Romney also could see his standing improve in Wisconsin, a state President Barack Obama won handily four years ago but that could be much tighter this November. Even so, Ryan has been a doubleedged sword for Romney. The congressmanÂ’s endorsement of Romney came at a critical stage of the GOP primaries, giving him a boost in the Wisconsin race that effectively bur-ied RomneyÂ’s final threat. But it also meant Romney was embracing the Ryan-sponsored budget proposal that Democrats fiercely target as painful to the poor and elderly. Still, the square-jawed congressman is viewed as a bridge between the buttoned-up GOP establishment and the riled-up tea party movement. At 42, Ryan has spent almost half of his life in the Washington fold, the last 14 representing a southern Wisconsin district that runs from the shores of Lake Michigan through farm country south of Madison. Ryan grew up in Janesville and still JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Chris Culpepper (left) and his brother, Brad Culpepper both of Athletic Resources, slip a piece of wood under a scissor-lock design as they work on the floor of the Columbia High Sc hool gymnasium Thursday.

Improvements, new look launch new year By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comTeachers return to work tomorrow, but a week from Monday, the halls and classrooms of the Columbia County School District will be bustling with students ready to start a new school year. The first day of classes is Aug. 20, but throughout the summer district administrators and staff have worked to fill open positions and prep buildings and classrooms for the new year. About 700 teachers return to their classrooms Monday for preplanning, but many worked last week to get ready for their new students.

Larry Herlths roundtrip swim to Alligator Reef Lighthouse Saturday took the 52-year-old five hours and 11 minutes. He was escorted by several boats and paddle boarders. Known locally as Lighthouse Larry for his detailed, scale metal reproductions of Keys lighthouses, Herlth is passionate about the need to preserve the large beacons originally fabricated in the 1800s to warn ships away from the Florida Keys reef tract. Modern Global Positioning System navigation has replaced the need for lighthouses in the Keys and they are no longer intensively maintained. Herlth says the rusted iron struc tures are in dire need of restoration so the historical icons will remain for future generations. Nudist park holds bash to attract younger crowd LOXAHATCHEE Nudist resorts have a reputation for attracting older adults, but one Florida park is trying to change that. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports Sunsport Gardens will hold a weekend bash aimed at attracting nudists ages 18 to 30. The Florida Young Naturists Fourth Annual End of Summer Naked Bash is slated to be a celebration of nudi ty and body acceptance. Sunsport Gardens principal share holder Morley Schloss tells the paper the park has been trying to bring in younger members with lower prices, 24 hour hot tubs and Friday night drum circles. The gathering at the 40-acre Loxahatchee park is expected to gather several hundred young adults. Nudist resorts around the country have been working to attract a younger crowd. Hospital claims fertilizer company pushing probe MIAMI The state is investigating abuse allegations at a Florida hospital that treats brain injuries, but its owner says the charges are old and being rehashed as part of a neighboring fertilizer compa nys attempt to damage the facilitys repu tation so it can gain a lucrative permit to extract millions of dollars of phosphate. The Department of Children and Families with two other state agencies conducted an unannounced inspection of The Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation last week, just days after Bloomberg News published a story outlining abuse allegations. The fertil izer company, Deerfield, Ill.-based CF Industries Holdings Inc., says it had noth ing to do with the news story. The department confirmed 36 of nearly 500 allegations of abuse at the 238-bed hospital extending back to 2005, accord ing to DCF spokeswoman Erin Gillespie. Because none resulted in death, the department is keeping details of the alleged abuse confidential, citing privacy laws. The investigation is ongoing, and state officials have not made any deci sions or released any additional details. DCF declined to comment on whether the number of abuse allegations was high or low in comparison to other facilities. The hospital takes patients from all over the country and gives them unmonitored access to the abuse hotline, which results in a high number of frivolous reports, said hospital CEO and owner Joseph Brennick. Deputy hits, kills pedestrian responding to call ORLANDO Authorities say a pedestrian in central Florida is dead after being struck by a deputy sheriff on her way to a call. Officials report two deputies were responding to a report of four suspects fleeing in a stolen vehicle. One of the suspects was armed. The Orange County Sheriffs Office deputies were in two separate cars, one traveling behind the other. The Orlando Sentinel reports a 52-year-old man started to cross the street the deputies were driving down Friday at about 10:30 p.m. The deputy in the first vehicle was able to swerve and avoid hitting him, but the second deputy was not. The pedestrians name has not been released. Florida proposes big Praetorian Insurance cut TALLAHASSEE Praetorian Insurance Co. is facing up to a 36 percent rate reduction for Florida homeowners. Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty on Friday announced his intent to disapprove a company proposal for a 2.2 percent decrease. McCarty said his Office of Insurance Regulation has demonstrated a reduction of 35 percent or 36 percent is required. The Consumer Federation of America says Praetorian sold more than $430 mil lion in whats known as forced placement coverage last year in Florida last year as Balboa Insurance Co. and QBE Specialty Insurance Co. The group had advocated for at least a 44 percent reduction. Forced placement insurance is imposed by lending institutions on the property of borrowers who fail to keep fire insurance in force. LONDON Get ready for a star-studded spectacular: Olympic Stadium is being transformed into a giant jukebox of British pop and pizzazz for the closing ceremonies of the London Games. The Spice Girls and The Who are among the acts prepping perfor mances to celebrate the end of the Olympics. Although organizers have tried to keep the ceremony under wraps, many details have leaked out in the British media and some of the performers have let the cat out of the bag themselves. Director David Arnold is calling the production the greatest afterparty in the world. If the opening ceremony was the wedding, then were the wedding reception, Arnold told the Daily Telegraph. The Who, George Michael, Muse and Ed Sheeran have all said they will take part in a show that will include performances of 30 British hit singles from the past five decades. The Pet Shop Boys, Annie Lennox and Fatboy Slim will also be on hand to get people dancing. Tips and photos have emerged from the rehearsal venue, an old car plant in east London. The Spice Girls were photo graphed dancing atop black London taxis, so a rendition of their biggest hit, Wannabe, seems possible. So does an appearance by surviv ing members of Queen, whose We Will Rock You and We Are the Champions have been ever-present at the games. And Ray Davies of The Kinks is tipped to perform his majestic London ballad Waterloo Sunset. Beyonce performs and films music video at UN NEW YORK Superstar singer Beyonce has serenaded a different New York City venue: The United Nations. Beyonce performed her song I Was Here on Friday in the UNs General Assembly Hall in honor of World Humanitarian Day, which is Aug. 19. A music video of the perfor mance will debut the same day. Beyonce sang in front of hun dreds, including Julia Stiles, R&B singer The-Dream and songwriter Diane Warren, who wrote the song. Warren said in an interview that she initially called Beyonces hus band, Jay-Z, and played the song for him over the phone. He quickly called Beyonce, and days later she recorded it. It appears on her album , released last year. Anderson Cooper hosted, saying with a laugh: Is this what happens at the UN every Friday night? Dolly Parton says water/ snow park on hold NASHVILLE, Tenn. Dolly Parton told reporters that a pro posed water-snow park in Nashville is in a holding pattern but did not elaborate further on the park to be built in partnership with Gaylord Entertainment. During a news conference Friday celebrating her latest gold record, WKRN-TV reported the country singer was questioned about the progress of the park, which she announced in January. Parton said she was waiting on Gaylord to get some things straightened out before moving forward. Last month Gaylord Entertainment announced jobs were being eliminated pending shareholder approval of a deal to sell its hotel brand to Marriott. The company owns the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium and the Opryland mall. A Gaylord spokesman said in a statement that the company was percent committed to the park. n Actor George Hamilton is 73. n Actor Bruce Greenwood is 56. n Rapper Anthony Ray is 49. n Actor Peter Krause is 47. n Tennis player Pete Sampras is 41. n Actor Casey Affleck is 37. n Football player Regan Upshaw is 37. n Football player Plaxico Burress is 35. n Korean actor Park Yong-ha is 35.

Florida Voter ID #113877356Ephesians 6:12, I John 4:1 Â“but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.Â” TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressTAMPA Â— Improved Internet service, new cell-phone towers and more palm trees downtown are some of the improvements made for the Republican National Convention that will become permanent after the delegates are long gone from Tampa. Organizers say these are some of the perks for res-idents who will have to endure traffic tie-ups, pro-testers and other inconve-niences. The majority of Americans who watch Mitt Romney accept his partyÂ’s nomination on TV wonÂ’t know how much plan-ning has been done. Folks across the nation will see this pomp and circum-stance on TV, when the convention is broadcast in prime time from Aug. 27-30. By Sept. 1, they will move on to the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., the following week. Some changes are just for the four days. Banners depicting palm trees against the conventionÂ’s palette of Â“rich, deep hues of red and blue, anchored with accents of whiteÂ” are being unfurled and hung across the city. Fiberglass elephants have been deco-rated by artists and mount-ed on walls so protesters canÂ’t vandalize or make off with them. Yet many of the changes will benefit residents and visitors for decades. Matt Kramer, president of St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce, was then-Minnesota Gov. Tim PawlentyÂ’s chief of staff when the RNC held its convention in St. Paul in 2008. Kramer said that while there were several infrastructure upgrades, there was another kind of boost for the region. Â“An event of this magnitude builds a professional level of competency that otherwise would have never occurred,Â” said Kramer, adding that he feels his region is better poised to draw large events now that it has successfully organized a political convention. Here are some of the larger, permanent projects that the RNC will leave behind in the Tampa Bay area: n Improvements at the Tampa Bay Times Forum: About $520,000 was spent on upgrading the arenaÂ’s sound, including the place-ment of 100,000 square feet of acoustic blankets along the ceiling so delegates inside the con-vention hall can hear the speeches better. The cost was shared by the Tampa Bay Lightning Â— the hockey team that calls the venue home Â— and the RNC. The upgrades wonÂ’t have much effect on the sound of hockey games, but officials say acoustics during future concerts will be vastly improved. Additionally, the RNC and Lightning are paying to add two additional mega-watts of electrical capacity to the venue. n Phone and data upgrades: AT&T is the official wireless provider for the convention and has spent about $21 million in various upgrades for the RNC alone. The company is erecting three new cell towers to avoid dropped calls and added 300 layers of frequency to cell sites so users can download information faster. Bright House Networks will pro-vide Internet and cable television services and a spokesman says the com-pany has added over 190 miles of single strands of fiber to downtown Tampa to enhance internet capac-ity. It has also added over 48 miles of indoor data cabling at the forum and Convention Center, where many of the 15,000 mem-bers of the worldwide media will work. n Beautification: The city of Tampa is spending $2.7 million in beautifica-tion projects, mostly land-scaping around the gate-ways leading into down-town. New trees, shrubs and flowers are sprouting up everywhere, includ-ing FloridaÂ’s signature tropical symbol, the palm tree. Even St. Petersburg Â— located across Tampa Bay Â— put up a new sign with the cityÂ’s name along an interstate. n Equipment for law enforcement: Tampa Police received $50 million from Congress to provide secu-rity for the RNC. So far, the agency has spent about $13 million on 1,500 radios, 200 bicycles, 13 electric all-terrain vehicles and one armored truck. ThereÂ’s also a slew of other dis-patch and communications upgrades so the 4,000 offi-cers on the ground at the RNC Â— most of them from other departments Â— can talk to each other. After the convention, the Tampa Police department will keep some of the gear, but some, like the radios and bicycles, will be shared with other area agencies to use. Convention to bring permanent changes to region The new palm trees and landscaping in downtown Tampa w ere purchased with part of the $2.7 million the city is spending in beautification in pr eparation for the Republican National Convention, which will be held Aug. 27-30. Associated Press BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Â— A federal immigration agent lost his Â“stand-your-groundÂ” appeal on Friday in the stabbing of a rival fan before a college football game in Florida. A three-judge panel rejected the appeal from University of Miami fan Edward M. Mederos, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent with the Department of Homeland Security. He is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon Â— his government-issued knife. Mederos claimed he acted in selfdefense to protect himself and a friend, federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent Javier Ribas, during an altercation out-side Florida State UniversityÂ’s Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee in September 2009. Derek Smith, who was unarmed, was stabbed in the hand. Campus police said all three had been drink-ing and that Smith was not seriously injured. A trial judge in Tallahassee rejected MederosÂ’ pretrial claim of immu-nity under FloridaÂ’s Â“stand your groundÂ” law, which lifts the common law requirement to retreat before using deadly force in self-defense. The law has come under intense scrutiny since neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman claimed self-defense after fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin at a Sanford apartment complex Feb. 26. Police and prosecutors said they did not immediately charge Zimmerman because they could not disprove his Â“stand-your-groundÂ” claim. He has been charged with second-degree murder and plans to seek dismissal of the charge under the law. The case drew local and nationwide protests because Zimmerman was not arrested for weeks after the shooting. He says Martin punched him and slammed his head against a sidewalk and he defended himself. In the football game case, the 1st District Court of Appeal panel unani-mously upheld the trial judgeÂ’s deci-sion, saying Mederos failed to prove that he was defending himself. District Judge William Van Nortwick wrote for the panel that the trial judge found witness testi-mony Â“contradicts wildly.Â” Mederos contended Smith was choking Ribas but other witnesses said it was only a shoving match and that Smith was stabbed only after he and Ribas had been separated. Van Nortwick added that Mederos still could use Â“stand your groundÂ” as a trial defense. District Judges Joseph Lewis and Ronald Swanson concurred in the opinion.ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Â— A Florida legislative panel will decide next week whether to give a budget break to the stateÂ’s court clerks. The new state budget reduced the budget of court clerks by nearly $30 million. Court clerks responded to the cut by laying off employ-ees, closing branch offices and curtailing office hours. The Joint Legislative Budget Commission on Aug. 16 will vote on whether to give the clerks up to $29.5 million in court fees and fines that could be used to cover the gap. Gov. Rick Scott has already signed off on the proposal because the money would not come from the stateÂ’s main budget account. County court clerks handle everything from court files, traffic tickets and child support. The budget for the clerks, however, is set by the Florida Legislature. Court denies Â‘stand your groundÂ’ in fight between fans at football game Court clerks could get budget break
ames Montgomery gave a splendid public reading of Joyce KilmerÂ’s poem Â“TreesÂ” to open the 2012 Arbor Day ceremony. When he finished, one person toward the back of the group whispered to her friend, Â“If that lady never wrote another poem in her life, she would always be remembered for that one.Â” ItÂ’s a common and understandable mistake to think that Joyce Kilmer was a woman. After all, not many men are first-named Joyce? So how did that name come about in the first place? KilmerÂ’s full name was Alfred Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918). The Alfred came from Alfred R. Taylor, the curate (clergyman) of the Roman Catholic Church his family attended. The name Joyce came from the Reverend Dr. Elisha Brooks Joyce, the parish rector. The KilmerÂ’s decided to call their son Joyce out of their respect and love for the Rev. Dr. Joyce. A product of a classical education, Kilmer became an emi-nent author, teacher, lecturer, and editor, but poetry was his strong suit. Some referred to him as the Â“poet laureate of the Catholic Church.Â” When World War I started, he enlisted, went overseas, and was assigned to the Â“Fighting 69thÂ” infantry unit and rose to the rank of sergeant. He often chose the most dangerous and difficult missions. His men respected him for his coolness and nerve under fire. One day while Sgt. Kilmer was on a scouting patrol to find the position of a German machine gun, he was killed when an enemy bullet pierced his brain. He was just 31 years old. He was posthumously awarded the French Croix de Guerre (French War Cross) for his valor, and buried in a mili-tary cemetery in France. Although Â“TreesÂ” is likely his most popular poem, his Â“Rouge BouquetÂ” also became well-known. This poem commemo-rates the loss of 21 of his fellow soldiers. The last two lines of Â“TreesÂ” are Â“Poems are made by fools like me/But only God can make a tree.Â” The lasting popularity of those two lines prompted humorist Bennett Cerf, to mimic them. In Â“Song of the Open RoadÂ”, Cerf wrote Â“I think that I shall never see/A bill-board lovely as a tree./ Indeed unless the billboards fall/, IÂ’ll never see a tree at all.Â” New JerseyÂ‘s Camp Kilmer, named in Sgt. KilmerÂ’s memory, opened in 1942 and was closed in 2009. Joyce KilmerÂ’s father, Dr. Frederick Barnett Kilmer, also made a name for himself. As a chemist employed by the Johnson and Johnson Co., he invented JohnsonÂ’s baby pow-der.POLITICAL QUESTIONWhat presidential candidate spoke at the Lake City Community College (now Florida Gateway College) gym-nasium in February of 1988? The Reverend Jesse Jackson. The packed gym (now the Conference Center) resounded with the loud chants of, Â“Run Jesse RunÂ” and Â“Win Jesse WinÂ”. Several other presidential candidates have spoken here. Adlai Stevenson spoke in Olustee Park while campaign-ing against Dwight David Eisenhower. George Wallace spoke to a huge crowd from the Court House steps in front of banners proclaiming Â“Send them (Washington) a message.Â” Gen.

Duval St.Lake City, FL 32055 Q Morris Williams is a local historian and long-time Columbia County resident. S omehow weÂ’ve come to accept, regard-ing government policy, that there are separate Â“economicÂ” issues and Â“socialÂ” issues, the former being issues having to do with our pocketbook and the latter being issues touching reli-gious values and behavior. But, the economy is also a social Â“valuesÂ” issue. Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University activist who gained notoriety when she was verbally assaulted by Rush Limbaugh after she testified in favor of the contraceptive mandate, still pro-motes the cause. In a recent Huffington Post column, she touts Obamacare as a victory for womenÂ’s Â“health care rightsÂ” and the fact that con-traceptives are now available Â“at no cost.Â” At no cost? Will contraceptives drop from heaven like manna? In this case, womenÂ’s Â“health care rightsÂ” is a claimed right for women to have taxpayers foot the bill for their birth control, to get others to pay for their contracep-tives and abortion-inducing pills. The Â“rightÂ” to transfer to others the costs of personal deci-sions regarding sex trumps tax-payers right to keep government out of their private property. The costs of Obamacare, including paying for Sandra FlukeÂ’s contraceptives, come out of our hide in the higher prices weÂ’ll pay for products, as compa-nies pass on their higher health care costs to consumers. According to economist Art Laffer, government stimulus spending over the last five years totaled $4 trillion. ThatÂ’s almost $13,000 for every American man, woman and child. Our money, spent by politicians on Â“banks and companies that fail, solar energy companies that canÂ’t make it on their own, unemploy-ment benefits, and the like.Â” How can we possibly have a functioning economy when politi-cians can randomly steal from citizens? When, basically, we have legalized theft. Our economic crisis is one of values Star Parkerparker@urbancure.org Q Star Parker is president of CURE, Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (www.urbancure.org) and author of three books. F irst President Obama said Â“the private sector is doing fine.Â” Then he lectured business owners, Â“you didnÂ’t build that.Â” Now he wants to extend the governmentÂ’s auto-indus-try takeover across the board. Mr. Obama simply cannot understand how the economy can function without govern-mentÂ’s firm guiding hand. At a campaign stop in Pueblo, Colo., on Wednesday, Mr. Obama tout-ed the alleged success of his government-backed takeover of two-thirds of the domestic car business. Â“The American auto industry has come roar-ing back,Â” he said. Â“Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.Â” The Obama administration ritually flaunts the General Motors bailout as its model of success, but Â“govern-ment motorsÂ” is actually a cautionary tale. The bailout cost taxpayers around $100 billion, which means the government coughed up around $780,000 for every American GM job that Mr. Obama claims he Â“saved.Â” The feds hold 500 million shares of GM stock, which has plummeted almost 45 percent since its initial pub-lic offering. Believing in GMÂ’s resurgence is only possible through creative accounting. GM counts a car as Â“soldÂ” when it arrives at a dealer-ship, not when it is in the hands of a consumer. The increased Â“salesÂ” the administration brags about are surplus cars sitting in dealer lots, a practice known as Â“channel stuffing.Â” In a healthy economy, dealers have approximately a two-month inventory on hand; GM now has over double that. So long as GM pumps out cars that are Â“boughtÂ” by dealers, Mr. Obama can con-tinue to claim things are look-ing up. Of cars that are actual-ly driven off the lot, many are being bought by the majority stockholder: the government. In June, government purchas-es of GM cars went up 79 per-cent. This is a Ponzi scheme, not an economy. Mr. Obama claims he should be given four more years because, Â“weÂ’ve got too many good jobs weÂ’ve got to create.Â” But his persistent failure on the job front is the best argument to give some-one else a chance. His Â“stimulusÂ” program, which promised to create millions of jobs, channeled almost a trillion dollars to Obama cronies without reach-ing any of its stated employ-ment objectives. Obamacare, which was supposed to con-trol health care expenses, is a trifecta of failure that will increase costs, raise taxes and kill jobs. Other Obama-favored projects such as Solyndra were pricy failures the president now refuses to mention. Republicans Â“donÂ’t have a plan to create more jobs,Â” Mr. Obama claims. Â“They donÂ’t have a plan to revive the middle class. IÂ’ve got that plan.Â” So far, though, Mr. ObamaÂ’s plan has produced a stagnant economy, the high-est sustained unemployment rate of any post-war president, soaring public debt and a declining middle class. His response Â— putting even more of the economy under government control Â— will only make things worse.

cy. Horne said the problem arose because addresses were incorrectly input into the software system, with even/odd addresses being flip-flopped from what was listed in the countys 911 GIS mapping system. Dist. 5 county commission candidate Michael Christie believes discrepancies arose because of previous issues with redistricting maps. The majority were on the fine line between what used to be Dist. 5 and what is now Dist. 1, Christie said. In 2011, county commis sioners were presented four redistricting maps drawn by the Supervisor of Elections Office, but approved a fifth map on Nov. 22 that was drawn by county staff at the request of commissioners. A major point of contention in the approved map was the line dividing Dist. 1 and Dist. 5. One cannot help think that has something to do with it, Christie said. Dist. 1 County Commissioner Ron Williams, who is running for re-elec tion, said redistricting has noth ing to do with the discrepancy. This has happened three times in the last four years and two of those times there was no redistricting. So you cant put it on redistricting, Williams said. County commission Dist. 5 candidate Tim Murphy agreed that redistricting was not to blame for the mix-up. Ironically enough when the situation did arise, it just happened to arise in the area that started the [redistrict ing] controversy, Murphy said. Murphy said flagged ballots were from all over the county. Dist. 5 County Commissioner Scarlet Frisina, who is seeking re-election, said some of the addresses in question are nowhere near a redistricted line. Kent Harris, an early voter whose ballot was mis matched, said he believes the issue has nothing to do with redistricting. Harris went in to vote last Saturday and was surprised to see that his ballot had Dist. 1 listed when he was expect ing to cast a vote for Dist. 5. Harris said he approached Horne about the issue while at the Supervisor of Elections Office, but no action was taken. It makes you question what else is wrong, Harris said. He was concerned about what would happen to his initial ballot. Christie said he is pre pared to pursue the issue further if need be. Its a shame that, say, if I lose 140 votes or anybody loses 140 votes, theres going to be some action taken, Christie said. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & NA TION SUNDAY AUGUST 12, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 6A OF FLORIDA A Cal-Tech Company Is your homes foundation letting you down??

The notices will be mailed to Columbia County property owners beginning Monday. TRIM notices on the way this week By TONY BRITT email@example.com Tax notices detailing the proposed tax levies for local governmental authorities will be mailed to residents later this week. The Columbia County Property Appraisers Office is scheduled to mail the 2012 proposed TRIM (Truth In Millage) notices to approximately 37,000 Columbia County property owners on Monday. Doyle Crews, Columbia County property appraiser, said the proposed tax notic es contain the proposed millage rate that the taxing authorities intend to levy. The notices also contain the time and place where the taxing authorities will meet to discuss their 20122013 fiscal year budgets. As the county property appraiser, Crews assess es all the properties in Columbia County and cer tifies to each of the taxing authorities the amount of taxable value in the county. The taxing authorities then take their budgets, divide it into the amount of tax able value and come up with a millage. The taxing authorities determine the amount of millage against the assessed value to figure their budgets. The Columbia County taxing authorities are the Columbia County Board of County Commissioners, Suwannee River Water Management District, City of Lake City, Lake Shore Hospital Authority and the Columbia County School Board. Millage rate increases have been proposed by two local taxing authorities. The Lake Shore Hospital Authority is proposing to raise its millage rate from 0.962 in 2011 to 1.500 in 2012, roughly a 64 percent increase. The City of Lake City is also proposing to raise its millage levy from 3.981 in 2011 to 4.16 in 2012. The Columbia County School Board has two mill age rates, one for the local required effort and the other is its discretionary millage rate. The school board plans to reduce its local required effort mill age rate from 5.36 in 2011 to 5.16 in 2012 roughly a 3.78 percent reduction. The Columbia County Board of County Commissioners are propos ing to keep its millage rate at the same level as last year, 8.015 mills. The Suwannee River Water Management District is also proposing to keep its millage rate at the same level from the previ ous year, at 0.414 mills. Jeff Hampton, assistant property appraiser, said this years total tax millage levy is expected to generate approximately $43 million. The $43 million is a decrease from last years total tax millage levy based on a 4.9 percent decrease in market value and a 2.5 per cent decrease in assessed values. Hampton said county tax rolls are down. Our current roll is based on 2011 sales, which was still in a slow market (bank sales and short sales), he said. The 2011 sales were still in the decline, but it seems they have stabilized in 2012. Residents who notice a mistake in their personal information or feel their value assessment is incor rect, may set up a confer ence with Crews or a mem ber of his staff. However, the conference has to take place before Sept. 7. Sept. 7 is the last day a property owner can go to the property appraisers office to file for a petition with the Value Adjustment Board. Residents also need to apply for any 2012 exemp tions they may have forgot ten to file.

The project is part of the feder ally-funded Safe Routes to School Program, which aims to make bicycling and walk ing to school safer. It will make walk-up traf fic much safer and conve nient for walkers and parent pickup, Millikin said. Students at Eastside Elementary will be the most affected by renova tions, Millikin said. Work has already begun on the schools new kitchen and caf eteria area and is expected to be complete by the winter holidays. At Richardson Middle School, students and parents will see a remodeled front office and new gym floor, he said. Flooding from Tropical Storm Debby cost the school district $97,437 at Columbia High School. Several inches of water covered the gym floor, warping the wood and saturating the rubber bottom layer. The floor was a total loss, Millikin said. Work on the floor is not yet complete, so volleyball teams and physical education classes will be affected for the first few weeks of school, he said. Volleyball teams will use middle school gyms for games and practices as their season starts early in the school year, he said. The district could not meet its insurance deductible to compensate for the damage, but officals are in the pro cess of submitting a claim to FEMA. Changes for Niblack Niblack Elementary will have longer days this year in order to give students an extra hour of intensive read ing instruction, Millikin said. Niblack dropped from a C to a D last year, the only school in the district to do so. Letters were sent out last week to tell parents the new school hours will be 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., instead of 7:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Niblack will also have a new principal this year, Marilyn Gassett, he said. We wish her well and have every belief that she can bring some of those highperforming expectations from Fort White to Niblack, Millikin said. Former Niblack principal William Murphy was reas signed within the district. Testing changes The new school year also brings assessment changes. Fifth-graders statewide will take the math portion of the FCAT on a computer for the first time this school year, said Kitty McElhaney, district director of curriculum, assessment and account ability. This year will be the first time an elementary grade uses a computer for the FCAT, rather then paper and pencil, she said. The state is slowly shifting to computer-based testing. Also, a fourth End-ofCourse Assessment will be given this year. The new U.S. History EOC Assessment will make up 30 percent of students grades. These assessments are based on state standards and aimed at improving achievement and post-high school readiness. Algebra, geometry and biology high school cours es are currently tested using EOC Assessments.

SCHOOL From Page 1A erty owners in Columbia County will see an increase in the amount they are taxed in the Lake Shore Hospital Authority line item on their tax bill. City of Lake City The City of Lake City also proposed raising its millage levy from 3.981 in 2011 to 4.16 in 2012, roughly a 4.71 percent increase. Wendell Johnson, city manager, said the city does not plan to adopt the proposed millage rate, but adopt a lower millage rate. He said when he gave coun cil members the proposed budget he asked them to adopt, for TRIM purposes, the rollback rate of 4.169. The purpose of that was for planning purposes only, we had not gone through the budget workshops and it was just to be on the safe side, Johnson said. After weve gone through the budget workshops, my rec ommendation to the coun cil, and its been this way all along, is that the mill age will remain the same as fiscal year 2011-2012, at 3.9816. Johnson said the citys tax revenue will decline by about $240,000 in keeping the same rate and the rea son behind that is a $31 mil lion decrease in gross tax value for fiscal year 2013.

During summers in college, Ryan was a sales man for Oscar Mayer and once drove the companys famed Wienermobile. Ryans father, a lawyer, died of a heart attack when Ryan was a teenager. Its why Ryan is a fitness buff, leading fellow lawmakers through grueling, earlymorning workouts and pushing himself through mountain climbs. That same intensity pro pelled him on the political front, too. Ryan has let opportuni ties to advance come and go, most recently when he opted not to seek an open U.S. Senate seat. His young family factored into his con siderations; he and wife, tax attorney Janna, have a daughter and two sons, ages 10, 8 and 7.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY AUGUST 12, 2012 7A 7A Fall Leagues Now Forming Mens Mixed Womens Seniors 755-2206 Saturday Morning Youth League Registration Aug. 11 & 12 By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org County commissioners discussed the 2012-2013 Fiscal Year tentative bud get and heard requests for additional funding by outside agencies at a budget work shop on Friday. Tentative revenues for the fiscal year are expected to total $42,922,146 with appro priations set to $42,126,087 leaving an excess of $796,059. The tentative reserve totaled $11,928,510, approximately 1 million more than last year. Out of Floridas 67 coun ties, Columbia County had the 7th highest reduction in Ad Valorem taxes at 8.41 per cent and the 55th lowest per capita Ad Valorem impact at $38.78 per mill, according to County Manager Dale Williams. Williams gave commis sioners the option of closing the West Branch Library for a savings of $156,512. That library is in my district and I certainly dont want to see it closed, Commissioner Jody DuPree said. DuPree suggested asking the city to contribute money to library funds so the West Branch Library does not have to be closed. At the end of the day, the real issue is the amount of money you collect in Ad Valorem taxes which is shared in part with the city. We dont nowhere near collect that money in Ad Valorem taxes to pay what were supposed to pay, DuPree said. My question would be can we ask the City of Lake City to participate and help us with the librar ies before we just decide to close one? Williams said the city can willingly participate, but can not be denied services if they refuse. DuPree asked that a let ter be drafted to the city to ask for participation to help the county from closing the West Branch Library. Commissioner Ron Williams agreed with DuPree on the library. Whatever means that we need to do to make sure that we have wholesome, decent, breathing, live libraries in Columbia County, we need to make that adjustment somewhere else, Williams said. Approximately $6 mil lion was budgeted for road construction projects in the tentative budget. One mil lion dollars of non-recur ring funds was budgeted for countywide road resurfac ing. DuPree said not enough money was allocated for the project. One million is like noth ing. Were never going to get ahead, were so far behind, DuPree said. Storm water, roads and transportation maintenance has got to move way up the list. DuPree suggested a crew be designated to manage ongoing maintenance issues in the county. The county manager said he would talk with public works director Kevin Kirby and come up with a plan. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office, the largest outside budget for the coun ty, requested $180,000 for overtime expenses. CCSO requested that the amount be a recurring line item in the budget. Williams said money was not available in recurring funds this year, but the amount could be funded from the countys year-end money. Weve got to work to make this a recurring line item for future years, Williams said. We do it for our own depart ments, we need to do for those that have built-in over time also. Outside agencies such as Meridian Behavioral Healthcare, CARC or Advocates for Citizens with Disabilities, On Eagles Wings Mentorship Programs, Columbia County Senior Services and a group proposing an African American History and Culture Museum presented requests for additional fund ing from the board. Williams told the board to prepare for requests for additional funding from Lake City Humane Society and Catholic Charities by the first budget hearing on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. The board decided to take time to look over the budget and the peripheral informa tion presented at workshop before doling out funds. However, a few key issues were addressed before the meeting adjourned. Bailey motioned for the county to allocate an addi tional amount, $55,828, for employee health insurance. Bailey made a second motion to fund an additional IT position for the county as well as promoting the current Building Official II to Building and Zoning Coordinator. Both motions passed.

I t was a couple of proud surrogate papa moments. Columbia High and Fort White High had football parent meetings last week to go over team rules and make sure all necessary requirements have been met for their children to take the field. Seeing Demetric Jackson at Fort White and Brian Allen at Columbia take charge of their meetings and express their football philosophies was special for me. I was fortunate to report on the high school careers of both head coaches. They graduated from Columbia and played football for the highly successful programs at Florida and Florida State, respectively. Both were great Tigers, leading their teams to the playoffs twice each. Jackson played in the late 80s and early 90s. The Tigers were 28-5 in his three seasons. In Allens senior year, Columbia went to the third round of the playoffs for the first time since the state championship season in 1967. Both have accepted the task of taking their school programs to great heights and they have already proved up to the challenge. With a bit of a head start, Jackson has had the Indians in the playoffs in four of his five seasons. Allen had CHS in the playoffs his first year. More importantly, they are prducing players who are getting their grades and who show good behavior at school and in the community. This return and success of home-grown products is something of which we can all be proud. The most distressing thing at the parent meetings was when Quarterback Club representatives from both schools echoed how budget cuts will force more responsibility on the clubs to support the program. Money is always needed, but the clubs will be expected to provide volunteers to work the games. Fort White estimated 30 volunteers will be needed for each varsity home game, and 20 more for each junior varsity and middle school game. The representatives were careful to blame the shortfall on state funding, but we pride ourselves on handling education at the local level. Relying mainly on state funds will continue this downturn. The state wastes money on a testing program, all the while siphoning public education funds into voucher programs and charter schools. It is a system set up to fail, and that could be the master plan. Sports have been with us in schools for 100 years. It is as integral and important to education as the three Rs. If state funding is down for things we consider important, we have to pick up the slack. Write a check to the program. Join a booster club. Buy an ad, a cap, a T-shirt. Raise a millage rate. Allen and Jackson are the most high profile of Columbia County graduates at work in the schools. At all grade levels and in recreation, there are coaches helping our children. Not just sports, but in classrooms and other clubs and activities. We owe them support. By TIM KIRBY email@example.com Well into his second season as head coach at Columbia High, Brian Allens team continues to make progress. It is always slow the first three days, but we put the pads on Thursday and it was one of the best days I have seen, Allen said about the Tigers first week of practice. They really competed well on Thursday. It was one of our best eye-openers. The kids are more mature and they understand the concept. The things we did over the summer put us ahead of where we were a year ago. The Tigers were techni cally off on Saturday, but their plates were full literally and figuratively. The Columbia County Quarterback Club hosted a pancake breakfast with all the trimmings Saturday morning at Parkview Baptist Church. An esti mated 175 players, parents, coaches and boosters made it through the serving line. Judge Vernon Douglas was the keynote speaker for the event.

Associated PressLONDON Â— David Boudia ended a gold-medal drought for the United States with a dramatic last dive that scored the most points of the 10-meter platform competition at the Olympics on Saturday night. BoudiaÂ’s victory by 1.08 points over Qiu Bo of China gave the U.S. its first gold in diving since 2000, and was the first by an American man since the late Mark Lenzi won the 3-meter springboard at the 1992 Barcelona Games. Â“Oh, my God, I donÂ’t have words for it,Â” said Greg Louganis, the diving great who swept the springboard and platform events at the 1984 and 1988 Olympics and who has mentored Boudia. On the medals stand, Boudia wiped his brow as if to say, Â“Whew!Â” It was that close.The American scored 568.65 points in the six-dive final. Qiu took the silver at 566.85. The Jamacian team won the 4x100-meter relay in world record time. Usain Bolt and Ryan Bailey of the United States got the baton at almost exactly the same time Saturday night, then sped down the stretch for the final leg of the 4x100-meter relay. When Bolt reached his top gear, it was over. The WorldÂ’s Fastest Man powered Jamaica to a world-record time of 36.84 seconds, making him 3 for 3 for the second straight Olympics. Allyson Felix won her third gold medal as the Americans rolled to an easy victory in the womenÂ’s 4x400 relay. Another traditional power delivered when the U.S. womenÂ’s basketball team routed France 86-50 for its fifth straight Olympic gold medal. Candace Parker scored 21 points, including eight straight during the game-changing run in the second quarter. Team USA is poised to win the medals race for the fifth consecutive Summer Games. The U.S. menÂ’s basketball team will play Spain for the Olympic title today, and Mike Krzyzewski told The Associated Press it will be his final game as the national coach. When asked if he was sure, Krzyzewski didnÂ’t hesitate before again say-ing, Â“yes,Â” this will be his last game. With a win, Krzyzewski would join Henry Iba (1964, 1968) as the only U.S. coaches to lead the Americans to gold medals in consecutive Olympics. Mexico earned its first Olympic gold medal in menÂ’s soccer and left Brazil wondering if it will ever be able to add the title to its long list of triumphs. Oribe Peralta scored 29 seconds into the final at Wembley Stadium and added another goal in the second half, leading Mexico to the 2-1 upset. By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressKIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. Â— First came the black cloud that has been follow-ing Tiger Woods on the weekend at the majors. The real storm arrived a short time later Saturday in the PGA Championship, halting the brilliant start by Rory McIlroy and giving Woods a chance to stop his slide at Kiawah Island. McIlroy opened with three birdies and two par saves, none bigger than on the third hole when his tee shot lodged in the crevice of a branch about 7 feet off the ground. He reached up to remove the ball, took a penalty drop and made a 6-foot par putt to continue on his way. It all looked so easy for McIlroy, who was at 6-under par through nine holes and tied for the lead with Vijay Singh when the third round was suspended. For Woods, it was a grind on another windswept day at Kiawah Island. He failed to birdie the par-5 second hole, and then badly missed a 4-foot birdie putt on the next hole. He hit a spectator with a fair-way metal off the tee at the fourth, pulled a shot into the mounds short of the par-5 fifth hole and made yet another bogey on the par-5 seventh with two poor shots to the right, a wedge over the green and another missed putt. He made everything Friday to take a share of the 36-hole lead. He made noth-ing Saturday. Woods already was five shots behind and facing a 6-foot par putt on the eighth hole when the siren sounded to stop play. He was at 1 under. The wind eased as dark clouds gathered over The Ocean Course, and rain poured down on this bar-rier island about an hour later. The 26 players who didnÂ’t finish the round will return this morning. The final round was to be played in threesomes off both tees. Woods was about the only player going the wrong direction. Singh, the 49-yearold who has not been in contention at a major in six years, opened with a 15-foot birdie putt and made a strong recovery from trouble on the par-5 seventh by making a 25-foot putt to join McIlroy atop the leaderboard. Right behind was Adam Scott, showing no signs so far of a British Open hangover. Scott blew a four-shot lead with four holes to play last month at Royal Lytham & St. Annes a month ago by closing with four straight bogeys. He came to life toward the end of his front nine Saturday four bird-ies in a five-hole stretch, capped by a 45-foot birdie putt on the ninth. Scott was at 5-under par. Carl Pettersson, tied with Woods and Singh at the start of the round, was at 4 under through eight. This was the second time this year Woods had a share of the 36-hole lead going into weekend at the majors. He has not broken par in his previous six weekend rounds. Stopping play might be the best thing that happened to him Â— and a tough break for Bo Van Pelt and Steve Stricker, each of whom shot 67 earlier Saturday to climb up the leaderboard as the wind gained strength. 4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, AUGUST 12, 2012 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-04214BSports Diving gold for U.S. ASSOCIATED PRESSRory McIlroy of Northern Ireland finds his ball lodged i n a tree on the third hole during the third round of the PGA Championship golf tournament on the Ocean Course of the Kiawah Island (S.C.)

Montoya wins second straight pole with Watkins Glen recordBy JOHN KEKISAssociated PressWATKINS GLEN, N.Y. Â— Juan Pablo Montoya prefers running up front, and it grates on him when he doesnÂ’t. For the second straight week, he has no reason to beat himself up going into the race. Montoya shattered the Sprint Cup qualifying record at Watkins Glen International on Saturday. He won the pole for todayÂ’s Finger Lakes 355 with a lap around the 11-turn, 2.45-mile layout in 69.438 seconds at 127.020 mph. Kyle Bush set the track record of 69.767 seconds at 126.421 mph a year ago. Â“All my life IÂ’ve raced to win,Â” Montoya said after notching his second straight pole in the series and ninth of his career. Â“The last couple of years have been really frustrating.Â” Busch qualified second, also eclipsing the track record. Jimmie Johnson was third, followed by Brad Keselowski and Marcos Ambrose. Denny Hamlin and Jeff Burton were in backup cars after wrecking their primary rides in practice on Friday, victims of a track made slippery by Patrick LongÂ’s blown engine. Hamlin was 23rd and Burton 31st. Montoya won the pole last week at Pocono and finished 20th. He has only two top-10 finishes this season and three DNFs, one of the main reasons heÂ’s 21st in the points. Still, he isnÂ’t about to concede with five races remaining before the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Â“The only thing you can do is make sure youÂ’re work-ing the hardest you can,Â” said Montoya, whose two Cup victories have come on the road courses at Sonoma and Watkins Glen. Â“Maybe we still donÂ’t have the fastest car, but if you can play the strategy right you might come up here with something and you might go on to Richmond (the last race before the post-season) with a chance of making the Chase. It would be shocking.Â” Ambrose won last yearÂ’s race, besting Busch and Keselowski in a fender-banging, green-white-checkered finish. Busch is desperate for a victory this time. HeÂ’s fallen out of the top 10 in points and a win would vault him back into contention for one of the two wild cards. Chase positions 11 and 12 are wild cards and are awarded to those drivers between 11th and 20th in points who have the most wins. Busch is tied with Gordon, Logano, and Newman with one victory.

BROWN email@example.com Columbia county build ers and homeowners are expressing concern with a resolution recently passed by county officials for issu ance of building permits to properties flooded by Tropical Storm Debby. County officials say the intent of the agreement has been misunderstood. They feel like they are being held hostage or blackmailed, Roger Whiddon of Whiddon Construction Company said of several local hom eowners. They dont see the need to have to sign this form to get a building permit. Whiddon said homeown ers are refusing to sign the permit, stalling his ability to get to work rebuilding their homes. Before issuance of a building permit, homeown ers whose houses were affected by Tropical Storm Debby but are not included in the current FEMA flood zone are required to sign the agreement and release form. The form currently states: Owner releases Columbia County, Florida and Columbia County shall not be liable to Owner or any other parties as a result of flooding which have or may occur on Owners property or dam age to improvements on Owners property. Callaway homeowner Sid Thompson said the agreement makes him uncomfortable because the wording seems to pertain to the past as well as the future. Im not going to sign it the way its worded, Thompson said. I dont know if they are liable or not and I am not going to sign away any chance to hold them liable. Thompson said he would be willing to sign the release if it pertained to future flooding only. I just dont like to release Columbia County for anything that has hap pened in the past, he said. County attorney Marlin Feagle said the agreement was not intended to waive rights that homeowners may have for what hap pened in the past. That certainly wouldnt be fair in order to get a permit to give up a claim they may already have, Homeowners, builders wary of permit release form ABOVE: In this aerial view, a row of houses is seen underwater resulting from the aftermath of Tropical Storm Debby.

Its also the nations largest recycler, an innovator in generating renewable energy, and the owner of 271 landfills and 107 recycling facilities as of the end of 2011. The stock took a hit recently on disappointing earnings due to higher gas prices and lower commodity costs. Its still a great potential investment for your portfolio, though. The average American produces 1,600 pounds of trash each year. Thus, Waste Management deals in non-optional necessities and is a defensive stock. In 2008, when most stocks plunged, it rose. Its industry is very capital-intensive, so competitors cant just materialize easily. Waste Management is the industry leader with a $15 billion market cap, bigger than that of both its largest competitors combined. Size matters in this industry, and Waste Management has the definite advantage. Its innovative, too. For example, it has been exploring methods of converting methane gas into electricity to power its trucks and many homes. This could end up providing the industry with an entirely new source of revenue. Some worry, though, about Waste Managements exposure to underfunded pensions and its focus on growing via acquisitions. Waste Managements dividend recently yielded 4.3 percent.

But youre at a disadvantage if you dont have a solid understanding of the cattle business or art, or real estate, for that matter.

A A companys fair, or true, value is not easy to determine. Smart analysts will perform complex calculations and still disagree. They often use a discounted cash flow analysis, which involves (take a deep breath) projecting future free cash flows and assigning them present values based on a chosen discount rate, which is often the weighted-average cost of capital. their results are still estimates, based on educated guesses. There are simpler approaches to valuation. One very rough method is comparing a firms price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio to its growth rate. If the growth rate is much higher, the stock may be undervalued. Another easy approach is just to check out the companys historical P/E ratio range, which you can find at sites such as morningstar.com money.msn.com and caps.fool.com If the stocks P/E has usually been between 15 and 20 and its 25 now, theres a good chance its overvalued. Remember, too, that P/E ratios tend to vary by industry. Automakers, for example, typically have low ones, while less-capital-intensive businesses such as software firms often have higher P/Es. methods alone, though.

Thats nearly double the annual 2012 T HE M OTLEY F OOL /D IST BY U NIVERSAL U CLICK ( FOR RELEASE 8/9/2012) From staff reports Lake City Medical Center recognized a distin guished group of retired physicians who have contributed more than 20 years of service to the hos pital and the community. The six physicians served on committees at the hos pital during their careers and were honored at a din ner at the hospital Aug. 1. We felt it was very important to recognize these physicians for not only their work in the medical field, but also for their contributions to Lake City and the surrounding communities, said Mark Robinson, CEO of Lake City Medical Center. They played key roles in improv ing healthcare for North Central Florida. Lake City Medical Center recognized follow ing retired physicians: Ricardo Bedoya, MD Dr. Bedoya practiced in our community for 33 years. He was instrumen tal in bringing nuclear medicine, CT and MRI to Lake City. Dr. Bedoya was president of the medi cal staff and served on numerous other commit tees at the hospital. He also served as a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology at the University of Floridas College of Medicine, Jacksonville campus. Dr. Bedoya is a fellow of the American College of Radiology (ACR), one of the highest honors ACR bestows. He retired in 2007. Jose J. Goyenechea, MD Dr. Goyenechea began his practice in 1971 and delivered 4,244 babies before his retirement in 1988. He was a member of many service organiza tions within the Lake City community and belonged to numerous medical soci eties and associations. Dr. Goyenechea was awarded the Key to the City by the Lake City mayor when he retired from full-time practice. Ivan A. Lopez, MD Dr. Lopez started his prac tice in 1982 and was the only neurologist in Lake City for many years, filling a vital medical role for the community. He served as president of the medical staff for the hospital and was a member of local, state and national societies and associations. Dr. Lopez retired in 2005. Barney E. McRae, MD Dr. McRae grew up in Starke and returned to his North Florida roots to begin his family practice in 1960. He did a little bit of everything from deliv ery babies to abdominal surgeries. Dr. McRae was a charter member of the Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians and was a diplo mate of the National Board of Medical Examiners. The Medical center honors local retired physicians Feagle said. County manager Dale Williams said the intent of the form is to dispense information without enforcing too many restrictions. We now have informa tion we did not have avail able before, because no matter what our records showed was floodable property, we now have a new record and we want to protect the public as much as we can, so how do we take the new avail able information and not hurt property owners by letting them go ahead and rebuild their lives, Williams said. We dont want to stop things, its the worst thing we can do, but yet we dont want mistakes to be repeated either. After hurricanes hit in 2004, the county issued a similar agreement but liability was not a factor. According to County planner Brian Kepner, the 2004 resolution pertained primarily to the develop ment of vacant properties that had accumulated standing water. That resolution was trying to protect adjacent property owners when new development came, he said. Feagle said the 2004 resolution was actually more restrictive in that it required homeowners to meet a set of conditions concerning property elevation before a permit was issued. Whiddon said changes in regulations always hap pen after a major natural event. We learned a lot in and and the county came out with a require ment that your finished floor had to be a foot above the road in front of your house. Up until that point there was no requirement, Whiddon said. However, he said its impossible to prepare for every natural disaster that may occur in the future. You cant do the whatifs, you have to design for whats normal or what youve seen in the past, Whiddon said. Feagle said he has already been instructed by Williams to modify the agreement so that it is obvious that it only pertains to future liability. The form should be mod ified within the week. We are all on the same page, Feagle said. medical technology build ing at Florida Gateway College is named in his honor. He retired in 1998. Francisco Ravelo, MD Dr. Ravelo became the areas first local pathologist in 1984. He also opened the first private labora tory in the community. Dr. Ravelo is a diplomate of the American Board of Pathology, a fellow of the College of American Pathologists and was a member of other local and state associations. He retired in 2011. Raul Zelaya, MD Dr. Zelaya began his solo prac tice in 1985. He served in many medical staff roles for the hospital and is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Zelaya retired in 2007. COURTESY PHOTO Lake City Medical Center recognized retired local doctors for their service to the community. Pictured is Barney E.

Contact Robert Bridges Editor 754-0428 firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter 1DLIFE H orticulture is defined as the art and sci ence of grow ing plants, especially flowers, fruits, and vegetables. I like to think of growing plants as an art of living. When we are involved with growing and caring for plants, or when we are simply view ing plants for enjoyment, we benefit personally in so many ways. Through the centuries, horticulture has been used for physical and mental therapy. By definition, horticultural therapy is the practice of engaging people in horticultural activities to improve the body, mind and spirit. Some proven benefits include the reduc tion of pain, stress and anger. Memory and con centration can be improved along with productivity and problem solving skills. So working out in the garden GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorest dndemorest @ ufl edu GARDEN continued on 2D Garden therapy D ipping into cool, clear spring water on a swelter ing afternoon is a fond childhood memory for many Columbia County residents. However, increased demand and groundwater pumping threaten North Floridas liquid gems. Community and nonprofit lead ers are organizing an educational, multi-media event to help ensure our areas freshwater isnt just a memory in the future. The free event, Our Water, Our Future, will be 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7 in the Alfonso Levy Performing Arts Center at Florida Gateway College. It is sponsored by FGC and the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce. Celebrated photographer John Moran will share the beauty of local springs with a slideshow of images, said Jacqui Sulek, Audubon Florida chapter conservation manager. Dr. Robert L. Knight, director of the H. T. Odum Florida Springs Institute, will help attendees under stand the science behind our water resources and issues. Organizers hope residents will be prompted to get involved in protect ing water resources after diving deeper. This last six months or so have been the perfect storm for water use issues in Florida, Sulek said. The area has seen a prolonged drought and extensive flood ing, as well as discussion about Consumptive Use Permits, monitor ing wells and the Floridan Aquifer, she said. However, one of the big issues with water concerns is that nonprof its are often preaching to the choir with the same people paying atten tion, Sulek said.

By HILLEL ITALIE AP National Writer NEW YORK In the opening pages of The Feminine Mystique, Betty Friedan consciously cap tured the despair of so many housewives and unknowingly anticipated a shift in language that would mirror the revolution to come in womens lives. As she made the beds, shopped for groceries, matched slipcover material, ate peanut butter sandwich es with her children, chauf feured Cub Scouts and Brownies, lay beside her husband at night, Friedan wrote in her 1963 book, she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent ques tion Is this all? The average reader might catch such Mad Men details as matched slipcover material. But a linguist or psychologist will be keeping score: She and her each are used twice; herself once. Not a single he, his or him self appears. The golden age of the male pronoun was ending. According to a study released Thursday, the heshe gap in books one that has always favored the masculine has dramati cally narrowed since the release of Friedans femi nist classic. Drawing upon nearly 1.2 million texts in the Google Books archive, three uni versity researchers tracked gender pronouns from 1900 to 2008. The ratio of male to female pronouns was roughly 3.5:1 until 1950, when the gap began to widen as more women stayed home after World War II, and peaked at around 4.5:1 in the mid1960s. The ratio had shrunk to 3:1 by 1975, and less than 2:1 by 2005. These trends in lan guage quantify one of the largest, and most rapid, cultural changes ever observed: The incredible increase in womens sta tus since the late 1960s in the U.S., Jean M. Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University and author of Generation Me, said in a statement. Those numbers are quite staggering, says James W. Pennebaker, author of The Secret Life of Pronouns and chair of the psychology depart ment at the University of Texas in Austin. Pronouns are a sign of people paying attention and as women become more present in the work force, in the media and life in general, people are referring to them more. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 12, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 The Choice is Clear for District 3 Your support has brought results and together we will continue to move forward as a community.

Health care facilities often use sensory gardens as part of their therapy programs. These gardens are designed to stimulate some or all of the five senses in order to provide both stirring and relaxing experiences. With a little planning, you can add some different plants and interesting elements to your garden that will help calm the soul and heal the body after a taxing day at work. A great UF/IFAS publication on sensory gardens can be found at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ EP117 The main concept for this type of garden is personal interaction with your plants. Place plants so that you can reach out and touch them, smell them, and in some cases, taste them. A raised bed can help you get closer to your plants, or large contain ers can make them more accessible. Consider some type of seating that puts you right within reach of interesting foliage and flowers. You probably have been close to plants that you couldnt resist touching. Some plant textures that beg to be touched include soft and fuzzy, rough and crinkly, and smooth and slippery. How hard is it to walk by a perfect luscious rose blossom without bend ing down for a whiff? And when you brush against a mint or rosemary, how often have you stolen a little leaf to taste on your tongue? Needless to say, when you get this close and personal with plants, there are some safety issues to consider. Obviously, thorny plants should be planted out of reach in the back ground, and poisonous or allergenic plants should be D.

HEART OF AN EDUCATORMy decision to run for Superintendent is a culmination of more than 33 yearsÂ’ experience as an educator, with exp eriences ranging from math teacher and athletic coach to dropout prevention coordinator, before serving more than 20 years as principal and administrator in t he Columbia County School District. Serving the citizens of Columbia County has been my career goal for more than 20 years. I want to contin ue the overall progress of Columbia County Schools that has been made possible by the sustained e orts of students, parents, teachers, support sta and community sta keholders. In 1990, I became the rst Principal of the new Lake City Middle School. Within a few years, I was named P rincipal at Columbia High School, serving there for several years before moving to the post of Principal at Eastside Elementary. e principalship at Eastside Elementa ry allowed me to further my knowledge of the entire K-12 curriculum. While at the helm of Eastside Elementary, the school consistently received an Â“AÂ” rating. For the 2006-07 sc hool year, I returned to guide Columbia High School. Since returning to Columbia High School, the schoolÂ’s performance has risen steadily each y ear, going from consecutive Â“DÂ” grades to consecutive Â“BÂ” grades during the past two school years under my leadership. Based on preliminary results I am hopeful that Columbia High Sch ool will receive an Â“AÂ” rating this year as a result of the hard work of many dedicated teachers, students, parents and sta members.

A huge and potentially recordbreaking haul of crustaceans in Maine and Canada this year has caused a market glut and a crash in wholesale prices. Fearing for their livelihood, Canadian fishermen in the past few days have angrily blocked truckloads of Maine lobsters from being delivered to processing plants in Canada that turn out lobster products for U.S. supermarkets and restaurants. Unless something is done to prop up the price of lobster, Â“weÂ’ll go down the hole,Â” warned Eugene Robichaud, a fisherman in Richibucto, New Brunswick. The blockades have brought CanadaÂ’s lobster-processing industry to a near-standstill, put thousands of employees out of work, sent shockwaves through MaineÂ’s lobster industry and led to calls for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to inter-vene. Portland lobsterman Greg Griffin said he has been getting a paltry $2.35 a pound for his catch, a dollar less than a year ago, and he fears the blockade could drag prices down even more. Â“At what point is going out and bringing in lobster no lon-ger viable?Â” he asked. The dispute isnÂ’t expected to have any immediate effect on lobster prices in the United States. National restaurant chains such as Red Lobster that buy processed lobster typical-ly make their purchases and determine their menu prices far in advance. But the troubles shine a light on the workings of the lobster business in North AmericaÂ’s cold northern waters, and the way MaineÂ’s industry and CanadaÂ’s depend on each other. While much of the catch from both countries is sold live, a big share is canned, turned into fro-zen lobster tails or otherwise packaged. An estimated 35 to 50 percent of MaineÂ’s annual catch is shipped to Canadian proces-sors. Canada has more than two dozen lobster processors, about half of them in New Brunswick. Maine has only three plants of any size, and they handle only a fraction of what is processed in Canada. In recent years, the lobster industry has been suffering from too much of a good thing: The combined harvest for the two countries jumped from about 150 million pounds in 1992 to more than 257 million pounds by 2010, the latest year for which complete statistics are available. By all accounts, the 2011 haul was even larger Â— MaineÂ’s catch alone topped 104 million pounds Â— and this yearÂ’s could set a record. Because of so much lobster on the market, fishermen have been getting barely enough to cover fuel, bait, boat payments and other expenses. Â“If the price is too low, IÂ’m going to have to pay to go fish,Â” said lobsterman Maurice Martin of Richibucto. Last week, hundreds of Canadian lobstermen stormed several processing plants in New Brunswick and surrounded trucks making deliveries from Maine. Blaming Maine for the low prices, they demanded that processors stop accepting Maine lobsters. The protests spilled over to Prince Edward Island and to other plants in New Brunswick, and by Wednesday every processor in New Brunswick had shut down operations, said New Brunswick Fisheries Minister Michael Olscamp. On Thursday, a New Brunswick judge granted a 10-day injunction barring lobstermen from block-ing the plants across the prov-ince. During the blockades, lobstermen held up Â“No More U.S. LobsterÂ” signs and threw Maine lobster to the ground, calling it Â“garbage.Â” About 100 lobstermen also went to the federal fishery ministerÂ’s office in Fredericton, hurling large metal lobster traps into the reception area. Lobsters are unloaded from a fishing boat Thursday in Po rtland, Maine. MaineÂ’s lobster harvest seems to be hitting an economic wall, with a plentiful catch causing low prices that is disgruntling lobste rmen in Canada. They have set up blockades around some plants to preven t delivery of Maine lobster they say is stealing their livelihood.Associated Press By DAVID RUNKAssociated PressDETROIT Â— For Hugo Navarro, the 5-by-9-foot jail cell that serves as his stu-dio in southwest Detroit is an admittedly creepy place to immerse himself in his work. Unlike jailhouse artists who find creative inspi-ration behind bars, how-ever, the 56-year-old is there by choice. He paints at 555 Nonprofit Gallery and Studios, a decade-old arts organization that this year moved into its new home in the Detroit Police DepartmentÂ’s former Third Precinct station. The city closed the building in 2005 as part of a department-wide reorgani-zation, and the former lobby where residents once could walk in to report crimes now is an airy gallery. DetectivesÂ’ offices now serve as classroom and studio space. And poten-tially claustrophobic cells Â— bars still on their doors Â— are fostering creativity. Â“I didnÂ’t really have anything in mind before going to my jail cell,Â” said Navarro, whose colorful paintings of DetroitÂ’s shut-tered Michigan Central Depot and fires gutting homes adorn some of the cells near where heÂ’s worked for the past few months. Â“I just let myself go and let my inside do the work.Â” The Third Precinct renovation is among a handful of projects nationwide con-verting old police facilities, including one in Chicago that is becoming live the-ater venues and one in Philadelphia that is being converted into homes. For Carl Goines, a co-founder of 555, says the project is a balancing act between pre-serving parts of the police stationÂ’s past and making it a welcoming place for artists. Â“This is a space thatÂ’s taking on a new life. ItÂ’s a space thatÂ’s becoming inspirational,Â” said Goines, a sculptor. Ex-jail cells serve as artist studios in Detroit Carl Goines, a co-founder of 555 Nonprofit Gallery and S tudios, speaks in one of the studioÂ’s rooms in Detroit.

DEAR ABBY: This is my first-ever Dear Abby letter. I am disgusted by the lack of manners shown by cellphone users. I run an antique store in a small tourist town. I cannot tell you how many Â“insulted and incensedÂ” customers I have asked to please leave my shop because they insisted on talking on their cellphones. I have also asked people in church to carry on their con versations outside. A man at my daughterÂ’s high school gradua tion got a call and pro ceeded to talk on and on until I finally asked him to leave. This has happened in restau rants, movies -even a Broadway play. ItÂ’s inconceivable to me that cellphone users are unwilling or unable to under stand that their VIP conversations are an intrusion and rude to those who are forced to listen. -PEEVED IN NANTUCKET, MASS. DEAR PEEVED: It is difficult to teach con sideration for others to people who have none. However, allow me to clue you in to what some communities are doing to curb the intrusion of cellphones: They have posted signs in restaurants, theaters and shops that read, Â“Cellphone-Free Zone. The owner of this establishment thanks you for not using your cellphone on the prem ises. If you must make or receive a call, please do so outside.Â” That way, customers are warned in a way thatÂ’s not confrontational. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: What is proper when youÂ’re talking with someone and you notice the per son has food stuck in his or her teeth? What if the person is part of a group and someone you donÂ’t know very well? -TOOTHFUL IN FLORIDA DEAR TOOTHFUL: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you were in the other personÂ’s place, wouldnÂ’t YOU want to be told? Even if you know the person only casually, try to ease him or her away from the group and say, Â“I know we donÂ’t know each other very well, but I thought you should know you have something in your teeth. ItÂ’s happened to me, and I thought youÂ’d like to know, too.Â” Consider it a chari table act. The person will: First, be embar rassed; second, be grateful. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Unexpected change will turn out well.

By DANICA KIRKA Associated Press LONDON There was no mystery as to which team Varun Pemmaraju was supporting: His American flag was tied around his neck, the Stars and Stripes floating like a cape behind him. I was going for the Superman, Captain America-look, said the beaming 19-year-old com puter science and chemical engineering student from San Jose, California, as he stood a stones throw from Olympic Stadium. I thought America was a lit tle under-represented. Patriotism and the Olympic games have long gone together, but gone are the days when one just waved a flag. Now flags are worn. The fashion flags can be found at Olympic Park and around London as shift dresses and smocks, pants and shorts, hats and shoes, even dangly earrings and bracelets. Theres apparently no gar ment nor nail polish that cant be fashioned into something akin to a national banner. Although the sponsorship police at the International Olympic Committee can stop merchants from using the five Olympic rings, theres no trademark police on flags. Jayne Ody got her rain coat, which was covered in Union Jacks, from Primark, a British store. Her friend Ann Wanklyn was wearing two Welsh flags emblazoned with a dragon that had been sewn together into a simple shift dress. But Wanklyn is not about to claim shes a fashion prin cess Olympic Park is a sporty crowd. You wont see anyone here walking around in heels, I can tell you that, Wanklyn said. Before the games, American athletes were briefed on how to hold the flag should they be lucky enough to win. The U.S. Olympic Committee point ed out a picture of swimmer Missy Franklin displaying the flag properly after win ning gold right hand on stars, left on stripes. The (USOC) take the ambassador program very seriously, said Bill Mallon, a historian. They try to avoid the ugly American image by doing proper things at the games and teaching (athletes) the right things to do. 6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 12, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 Same Day Service Includes Saturday Lake City Lake City Commons Center (Publix Shopping) 752-3733 Carrying Vera Bradley CONTACTS EYE EXAMS by Independent Optometrist 2 Complete Pair Eyeglasses 2 Complete Pair 2 Complete Pair $ 119 Includes Lenses & Frames Some Restrictions Apply.

Patriotism and the games have always gone together, but gone are the days when one just waved a flag. Associated Press just concern tree-hug ger types, we all need it, she said. Our Water, Our Future organizers hope to reach a broader audience so people can understand the issue and take action to pro tect water resources. Its just time for folks to become advo cates for water, she said. The Springs Institute is a nonprofit program that supports springs science and education for springs restora tion and management. Knight is a profes sor at the University of Florida, where he teaches graduate-level courses on springs ecosystems and water quality treatment. Several community leaders and officials will present their vision of what water means to the future of the area and how to ensure that future. We thought it was important to have this as a community event, Sulek said. Water effects all levels of life, not just animals and plants, but businesses and our quality of life, she said. Sulek, of Fort White, is a TogetherGreen Conservation Leadership Program fellow, an national Audubon and Toyota initiative. One of 40 fel lows nationwide, Sulek is using the Togethergreen grant to residents develop a water ethic in North Florida that embraces and promotes sus tainable use of water and respect for the resource. FGC is very excited about the event, as it has a strong program for water industry careers, Sulek said. Several new features to the event are still developing, she said. Abbie Chasteen, Chamber marketing coordinator, said she hopes the event will reach residents and prompt them to think about how they use water. The Chamber is the marketing arm for The Ichetucknee Partnership, a waterresource education and outreach program. She said TIPs mascot, Bellamy Beaver, is sure to be there. Its a big event, Chasteen said. WATER: Event is free Continued From Page 1D
