Graduation rates rise By STEVEN RICHMOND email@example.com Columbia Countys graduation rose slightly for the 2012-13 school year, but was still well below the state aver age according to a report released by the Florida Department of Education Wednesday. The high school graduation rate for Columbia County ticked up roughly one percent over last year, reaching 65.7 percent for the class of 2013. Despite the improvement, Columbia County still trailed the statewide graduation rate average of 75.6 percent.

Huddleston Resource fair scheduled for PCS workers From staff reports A job resource fair has been scheduled for Potash Corp.-White Springs work ers who were laid off from their jobs last week. The resource fair, which was set-up by PCS and North Florida Workforce Development Board, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Dec. 20 at the PCS conference center on PCS grounds. They want to make sure their employees are taken care of and get the resources they need dur ing this time, said Diane Head, North Florida Workforce Board deputy director. We will have resources from training providers like Taylor Technical Institute, Florida Gateway College and others. The resource fair will provide the laid-off work ers with information about the re-employment assistance program, oth erwise known as unem ployment. PCS laid off 250 workers last week and announced 100 other workers would be laid off by the second half of 2014. Head said the resource fair would also feature resources like represen tatives from the Early Learning Coalition, as well as representatives to discuss the Affordable Care Act and insurance options. We have some VA resources, and we give priority of services to vet erans, Head said. Some local employers representing local indus try may also attend the resource fair. We havent confirmed individual employers yet, but several have called us and are interested in recruiting during the fair, Head said. Of the people laid off, a majority of them were concentrated in the Columbia County area, as well as Suwannee and By STEVEN RICHMOND firstname.lastname@example.org Members of the North Florida Broadband Authority met in Lake City Wednesday to discuss minor administrative tasks as Affiniti positions itself to take the reigns of the fledgling broad band service provider. Board members heard a report from Affiniti CEO Darol Lain on the various housekeep ing procedures underway as the Austin-based broadband and communication company pre pared to become the legal custo dian of the roughly $30 million of federal assets under the NFBA umbrella. The two companies entered an agreement in October follow ing an unsuccessful beginning to the federal program designed to bring broadband Internet to underserved rural communities. Board members attributed the lack of success to misinforma tion and bad publicity. The face that we projected out in the public mightve been the reason a couple of the coun ties dropped out, said board member and White Springs Vice Mayor Walter McKenzie. We just didnt have somebody out there that was informative and thorough and put on a good public face. Lain said he was interested in using the boards existing com munity relationships and con nections for courting clients in the future, joking that he didnt want to be seen as a Yankee carpetbagger. Our plan right now is still in the early stages of scouring these markets and getting to know everybody, Lain said after the meeting. Were focusing first on expanding anchor institu tions the NFBA was connecting to, like schools, hospitals and government entities. Affiniti and the NFBA will effectively operate as wholesale broadband providers and con nectors, providing public and private parties with broadband Internet access while also sell ing bandwidth to other internet service providers. According to Lain, Affiniti expects to invest somewhere between $3 to $5 million on Affiniti prepares to take over NFBA JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Overcoming fear to help others Columbia High School junior Kelsie Knudsen, 16, laughs at a joke after LifeSouth mobile team leader Danielle Graham sticks her while donating blood at the school on Wednesday.

History of the ugly Christmas sweater Oversized snowmen, 3-D reindeer noses, jingling bells and sometimes even lights are the telltale signs of the ugly Christmas sweater. But where, and why, did the trend start? Bill Cosbys character Cliff Huxtable was an icon of ugly sweaters in the s sitcom. The s saw them fade away, but in 2001 sweaters re-surfaced and holiday par ties snowballed from there. Now the tops are big ger than ever, but in a very hipstery, oh-so-ironic way. Vintage stores, the Salvation Army, and Goodwill are reap ing the benefits of this craze, but the trend has reached as far as fast-fashion shops like H&M and high-end retailers such as Nordstrom. for sweaters 1

In protest of a Nativity scene at the Florida Capitol, Chaz Stevens has put up a Festivus pole with beer cans around it. Sound ridiculous? Stevens agrees, but he did drive about 450 miles from the Fort Lauderdale area just to put up the pole. Â“WhatÂ’s the point? There is no point. ItÂ’s ridiculous. This is the most ridiculous thing I could come up with,Â” said Stevens, an athe-ist. Â“This is about the sepa-ration of church and state.Â” Because Florida considers the Statehouse rotunda to be a public forum, peo-ple can use the space to express themselves or pro-test, as long as they first apply with a state agency. Along with the Nativity scene and six-foot Festivus pole, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation has put up a banner advocating for the separation of government and religion. A Festivus pole is also on display at the Wisconsin Capitol, along with other displays. Â“Festivus for the rest of usÂ” is a non-secular holiday made up by the television show Â“Seinfeld.Â” Frank Costanza made up Festivus after becoming fed up with the commer-cialism of Christmas. At the Florida Capitol last week, several dozen people gathered for the Nativity celebration, including a childrenÂ’s choir. The only people there for the Festivus pole installation were media and Pam Olsen, who orga-nized the Nativity scene.Audubon Florida objects to training PENSACOLA Â— Audubon Florida is objecting to plans for military training at two state parks in the Panhandle. The environmental group says aircraft, motorized vehicles and electronic equipment will disrupt wildlife and vegeta-tion within the Blackwater River State Forest and the TateÂ’s Hell State Forest. Audubon Florida says it is especially concerned about the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker, which lives in the region. The Air Force did not immediately respond to questions about the protest letter released Wednesday by Audubon.Top of enrollment in marketplace FORT LAUDERDALE Â— More Floridians are signing up for the new federal health insurance program than residents in any other state, with nearly 18,000 registering over the last two months. According to figures released Wednesday, near-ly 14,500 Floridians signed up under the Affordable Care Act in November. That compares to about 11,000 in Texas. FloridaÂ’s November enrollment figures are considerably higher than the 3,500 in October when sign-ups were dwarfed by technical glitches with healthcare.gov. But itÂ’s still far less than what officials originally had projected. Enrollment statistics from the Health and Human Services Department show that 364,682 people nation-wide have signed up for private coverage as of Nov. 30. That figure is less than one-third of the 1.2 million people officials had origi-nally projected would enroll nationwide by the end of November.USDA: Smaller citrus crop WINTER HAVEN Â— The smallest orange crop in 24 years will get smaller as pre-harvest fruit drop continues to plague groves. USDA on Tuesday shaved 4 million orange boxes Â— or 3 percent Â— off the projected harvest. Mandela ceremony interpreter a Â‘fakeÂ’ JOHANNESBURG T he sign-language interpreter on stage at Nelson MandelaÂ’s glob-ally broadcast memorial service was a faker who was just waving his arms around meaninglessly, advocates for the deaf said Wednesday. The unidentified man seen around the world on television next to lead-ers including United States President Barack Obama Â“was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for,Â” Bruno Druchen, the federationÂ’s national director, told The Associated Press. The allegation was yet another example of bad organization at the historic memorial service Tuesday, which was marred by public trans-portation breakdowns that hindered mourners from getting to the soccer stadium venue. In addition a faulty audio system made the remarks of world leaders inaudible for many. Police also failed to search the first wave of crowds who rushed inside the stadium after authorities opened the gates just after dawn. Four sign language experts, including Druchen, said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages and could not have been signing in any other known sign language because there was no struc-ture to his arm and hand movements. South African sign language covers all of the countryÂ’s 11 official languag-es, according to the federation.Police: Player slain because of clothes YPSILANTI, Mich. Â— Police say an Eastern Michigan University foot-ball player killed during a possible robbery may have been targeted because he had on expensive-look-ing clothing. The Ann Arbor News reports the detail is in transcripts from a hearing in the case that it reviewed. Preliminary examinations for 20-year-old Ed J. Thomas and 19-year-old Kristopher K. Pratt are scheduled for Jan. 17. They face murder charges in the fatal shooting of Demarius Reed. The wide receiverÂ’s roommate discovered his body at the bottom of a stairwell at an off-campus apartment complex on Oct. 18. Police say ReedÂ’s wallet and cellphone were taken. Reed was a 20-year-old communications major from Chicago. The school announced plans Tuesday to hire a total of 10 new full-time police officers by September 2014 to boost off-campus patrols.Ukraine protesters reject govt offer of talks KIEV, Ukraine Â— Opposition protesters in Ukraine have rejected President Viktor YanukovychÂ’s offer of talks, saying they will not sit down with him until he fires his government and releases all arrested demonstrators. The opposition appeared to be in a stronger position after the abrupt withdrawal of riot police early Wednesday from parts of UkraineÂ’s capital. This has raised hopes that weeks of demonstrations have erod-ed police support for Yanukovych and his government. Arseniy Yatsenyuk, leader of the largest opposition party in parliament, calls the police withdrawal Â“a great victory.Â” Yanukovych issued an invitation late Wednesday to political, religious and civil figures to join a national dia-logue. But it was unclear if the move was merely an attempt to buy time and mollify Western officials who are pressuring him to reduce tensions.

The figure excludes nongraduates, such as students who were held behind or obtained GEDs, as well as students who dropped out altogether. The 65.7 percent graduation showed a fifth consecu-tive year of improvement since the 2008-09 school year, when Columbia County had a 56.6 percent graduation rate, according to FDOEÂ’s report. Â“IÂ’m certainly glad they continue to improve in a positive direction,Â” Columbia County Superintendent Terry Huddleston said. Â“ItÂ’s just a testament to the hard work of all of our teachers.Â” However, Huddleston, whoÂ’s been superintendent for a little over a year, said graduation was not the school boardÂ’s sole focus. He attrib-uted the higher graduation rates to a combination of dual enrollment and vocational pro-grams offered by the county, as well as summer programs that focus on bringing lagging students up to speed and on track to graduate. Â“ItÂ’s not just about graduating, itÂ’s about helping stu-dents become collegeand career-ready and to leave high school with industry certifica-tions,Â” Huddleston said. Â“ItÂ’s all about taking classroom applications and putting them into professions so students make those connections.Â” Huddleston said he hoped to focus on raising student enroll-ment in advanced placement and dual enrollment courses, as well as Â“bridgeÂ” programs for students transition between the elementary, middle and high school levels.

Scott wants to cut auto registration fees By GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Â— In a move that could help in a tough re-election fight, Florida Gov. Rick Scott wants to roll back the fees that motorists pay to register their cars. During a Thursday appearance in Tampa, Scott will wheel out a proposal to cut auto reg-istration fees by $401 million next year. The governorÂ’s office estimates the cut Â— which would kick in on Sept. 1, 2014 Â— would result in a decrease of more than $25 for most motor-ists. The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature increased auto fees in 2009 as part of an overall package of tax and fee hikes to help balance the state budget. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist Â— who was a Republican at the timeÂ— signed the fee hike into law. Crist is now running against Scott as a Democrat. Scott had already said he wants to cut $500 million in taxes and fees next year. But this is the first time he has spelled out which taxes and fees he would target to cut. In a white paper describing the proposal, the Scott adminis-tration contends that a projected budget surplus for next year should be used to undo the auto registra-tion fee hike. Florida economists last week con-cluded that the stateÂ’s main tax collections would grow by 3.8 percent over the current fiscal year and another 4.9 percent by the middle of 2015, bringing the total to $27.5 billion. This means that Scott and state leg-islators next spring could have a budget surplus in excess of $1 billion even after pay-ing for enrollment growth for schools and programs such as Medicaid. When Scott first announced his plan to cut taxes and fees he held a series of public meetings with business owners and resi-dents to discuss potential areas for cuts. That created a push by groups and business interest to propose cuts in everything from business taxes on electricity to sales taxes on com-mercial leases. The governor has sought tax cuts every year he has been in office, but his initial efforts encountered stiff resistance from his fellow Republicans in the Legislature. Shortly after he was inaugu-rated in 2011, Scott sought tax and fee cuts of $4 billion over a two-year period. Some Democrats criticized ScottÂ’s push for tax and fee cuts as a gimmick. They have said that Scott and the Legislature should use the extra money to increase funding for schools and universities. So far GOP legislative leaders have come out in favor of cutting taxes next year, but they have been cautious about endorsing any set amount. A legislative proposal to cut the auto registration fee is already moving in the Florida Senate, but the cut is not quite as large as the governor is recommending. The bill (SB 156) would cut the average auto registration fees by $12 a year and would cost the state an estimated $233 million. Auto registration fees can vary wide-ly depending on the type of vehicle. But Sen. Joe Negron, RStuart and sponsor of the leg-islation, said he welcomes the governorÂ’s support to cut the fees. Negron pushed a similar bill earlier this year but it died in the Florida House because it relied on ending existing tax breaks to cover the costs. Â“The size and the scope of the rollback will be deter-mined during the session,Â” said Negron, who is also the Senate budget chief. Â“But the reduc-tion will be substantial. Our constituents will feel it.Â” Â‘The size and the scope of the rollback will be determined during the session...but the reduction will be substantial. Our constituents will feel it.Â’ Â— Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart), Senate budget chief Scott 3A

Baxley Staying close Â– even when youÂ’re not Voting study biased A fter reading the head-line in TuesdayÂ’s edi-tion of the Lake City Reporter regarding voting statistics in Columbia County, I feel compelled to respond. The first sentence sheds light on the perspective of the study. The report was produced by the Center for American Progress, which is a Â“progressiveÂ” left wing educational and research institute, and is very closely aligned with the current White House administration. Their purpose is to promote DemocratsÂ’ ideas and candidates. LetÂ’s just say they are not an unbiased source for information. The first statistic offered stated that in Columbia County, only 53.5 percent of those eligible to vote par-ticipated in the 2012 general elec-tion. That sounds like an extremely low number and that fact may be correct. However, nationwide the eligible voter participation in 2012 was only 59 percent. But what needs to be emphasized is that figure includes citizens who are eli-gible to vote, but have not made an effort to register. The fact is that 76.6 percent of registered voters in Columbia County did indeed vote, compared to a statewide average of 72 percent. If eligible citizens donÂ’t register to vote, who does that reflect poorly upon? Further into the report, more statistics are given that begin to shed light on the agenda of the reportÂ’s authors. The voter regis-tration numbers compared to the voting age population as recorded in the last census indicates that 69.6 percent of Columbia County citizens are actually registered to vote. When broken down by race, as Â“progressivesÂ” so love to do, the numbers are even worse. Just 57.9 percent of blacks and 48.3 percent of Hispanics actually bothered to register. One question that is unan-swered in the report is, Do these numbers reflect citizens counted in the census who are ineligible to vote? I also find it curious that the authors fail to provide a breakdown of white voter participation. Could it be that those figures are of no interest to them? According to their figures, 1.98 percent of all absentee ballots were rejected compared to a statewide average of 0.96 percent. According to Department of Elections guide-lines, any ballot without a properly signed oath or with a signature that does not match the signature on file must be rejected. That is done in order to protect the integrity of an election. I would be concerned if improper ballots were not rejected. There is an implication that the problem is lies with the Supervisor of Elections in Columbia County. But my question is, does our elections office reject ballots that should be counted, or is it possible other counties count ballots that should be rejected because they lack all of the required elements established by the Department of Elections? The conclusion of the study states that Â“residents of Columbia County face multiple barriers when it comes to access to voting.Â” In addition, it states that Â“restric-tive state laws make it harder for Floridians to vote and poor election administration is disenfranchising the people of Florida.Â” All of their statistics remind me of a quote. Â“Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are much more pliable.Â” Well, the fact is that if you want to vote, you can vote. If you need to register, then you can register. If you need to update your registration, you can do that as well. The Supervisor of Elections office has two locations and is open five days a week, 52 weeks a year. Voting is a right. But it is also a responsibility. Good citizens exer-cise both. The vast majority of those in attendance at the recent town hall meeting on a pro-posed Union monument and its location at the Olustee battlefield werenÂ’t from anywhere around here. Many were from Central Florida with at least one from as far away as North Carolina. While we would prefer more local input on this important matter, itÂ’s a free country, and folks from across the land have the right to express their views, especially on something so momentous as the Civil War and how itÂ’s commemorated, here or elsewhere, on public lands. But when state Rep. Dennis Baxley of Ocala joined the fray, showing up out of the blue and tell-ing folks he wanted to change the rules so that he and fellow lawmakers could have a say on the issue, we had to wonder what was up. Baxley says the proposed Union monument is of concern to him due to his Southern heritage and because it is a state park, after all, however distant from his home down in Marion County. There may be a little more to it than that. Baxley recently announced heÂ’s setting up a run for state Sen. Charlie DeanÂ’s District 5 seat once the incumbent is term-limited out in 2016. What better way to ingratiate himself with local folks Â– and possible future supporters Â– than step in and help defuse a controversy that seems to be growing hotter with each passing week. WeÂ’re not sure we want BaxleyÂ’s help.First, changing the law so that the state Legislature, as opposed to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, gets to decide when and where new monuments are placed in state parks just isnÂ’t a good idea. Our lawmakers have plenty to keep them busy as it is. WeÂ’d rather they focus on bringing in jobs, improving our schools and preserving our freshwa-ter springs, among other things. Second, and more importantly, weÂ’ve got a state lawmaker right here whoÂ’s already on the case Â– and has been for nearly a year. Our own Elizabeth Porter, who has been at work on this issue since February Â– and who actually represents both Baker and Columbia counties in the Legislature Â– will meet sometime over the next few weeks with DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard, a man who, with a stroke of his pen, can decide the fate Â– and location Â– of this proposed monument once and for all. Porter has also reached out to U.S. Rep Ted Yoho and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio to see whether the pro-posed Union monument might better be placed on federal land, rather than the three-acre state plot that is home to the existing monuments. Porter said Friday she hopes for Â“a thoughtful, reasonable compromise.Â” We feel confident she can achieve just that.Provided interlopers like Rep. Baxley stay out of the way.W hen you are little and the world seems so big, itÂ’s hard to understand why someone you love is here one day and gone the next. Actually, that can be hard to understand at any age. IÂ’ve been trying to make sense of it all my life and I still donÂ’t get it. Or like it. But IÂ’ve come to accept it as one of the harder facts of life. Randy doesnÂ’t accept it a bit. He is 3 years old and smart enough to notice that his nana -that would be me -shows up at his door unan-nounced, only to disappear later like the UPS guy dropping off a package. Yes, there are differences. The UPS guy wears a crisp brown uni-form. I dress mostly in rumpled black. And he never sticks around to play with Randy, even for a minute. I always stay at least a few days, long enough to make Nana pan-cakes (theyÂ’re the best) and read stories (about Curious George) and trick his parents into letting him stay up late. The UPS guy never does that.But sooner or later, I always drive away, not in a big brown van, but in a little rental car. And IÂ’m gone for a very long time. A month. Or two. Or three. Then I get messages on my voice mail: Â“Nana, can you go to the park with me today?Â” How do you keep saying no when all you want to say is yes? Randy lives in California, with his parents and his brother, Wiley, who is almost a year old. Wiley doesnÂ’t care how long IÂ’m gone. I canÂ’t prove it, but I think he likes the UPS guy better. The reason for my vanishing act is simple, but not easily explained, especially to a child. My husband and I live 500 miles from our children and our grandchil-dren, in the desert overlooking Las Vegas, with an interesting array of wildlife and all sorts of things to do. Like many of our neighbors, we didnÂ’t plan on the job change that brought us here. But after a few years of trying to make the best of it, weÂ’ve been surprised to find how much we like it. The only thing we donÂ’t like is the 500 miles between us and the people we love. I was almost RandyÂ’s age when my parents divorced. I lived with my mother and will never forget how I missed my dad. But when I visited my dad, IÂ’d miss my mother, too. My grandmother helped me come to terms with it. Â“When someone loves you,Â” she said, Â“you donÂ’t have to be in the same room to know you are loved. Love stays forever, even when theyÂ’re out of sight.Â” I remembered those words years later when I lost in slow succession my grandparents, my parents and my first husband. I want my grandchildren to feel the same way about me. So I am teaching it to them, starting with Randy. The last day I was with him, I held his face in my hands and said, Â“Where is your nana when you canÂ’t see her?Â” He studied my eyes, waiting for me to tell him. So I did. I told him and I showed him, then I made him show and tell me. Â“Will you remember?Â” I said.He nodded and smiled.Then I left. Again. The next day his mama emailed to tell me this story. That morning Randy came out to the kitchen to ask, Â“Mama, where is Nana?Â” Â“SheÂ’s gone home, honey,Â” she said, Â“with Papa Mark.Â” Â“No, Mama,Â” he said, grinning and pointing to his chest. Â“Nana is right here in my heart.Â” Take that, UPS guy. Alton Â‘BuddyÂ’ Hines Q Alton Â‘BuddyÂ’ Hines is Chair of the Columbia County Republican Executive Committee.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2013 7A Irrigating turf with reuse water From staff reports LIVE OAK The Suwannee Country Club in Live Oak will soon maintain its turf without relying on groundwater. Rather than pump ing water from the Upper Floridan Aquifer they will be irrigate with reuse water. Reuse water is an alter native water source produced from highly treated wastewater and used for irrigation and other non-potable uses. The golf course will receive 100,000 gallons per day (GPD) of reuse water from the City of Live Oaks Waste Water Treatment Plant, offsetting their groundwater irriga tion use by 100 percent. The Suwannee River Water Management District provided the City of Live Oak $19,570 in funding assistance to pay for the infrastruc ture to connect the golf course to the citys reuse system. The City was awarded the funding as part of the Districts Regional Initiative Valuing Environmental Resources (RIVER) program. Construction is scheduled for completion by February 2014. Suwannee Country Club Manager and Superintendent Jason Cannon has eagerly awaited the opportunity to use reuse water since the City installed its reuse system several years ago. Were excited for the opportu nity to irrigate in a manner that will reduce costs, conserve water, and provide beneficial nutrients to our turf which will reduce fertilizer use, he said. Other customers receiving reuse water include Camp Weed, which uses up to 450,000 GPD for aquifer recharge and Suwannee Correctional Institute which uses up to 200,000 GPD for irrigation and other nonpotable uses. The District is also using reuse water for landscape irri gation on an as-needed basis, offset ting 100 percent of their groundwa ter use. Its a smarter use of our end prod uct, said Live Oak City Administrator Kerry Waldron. It also allows users the ability to use treated effluent for irrigation and related purposes rather than pulling from our fresh drinking water supply. The District has assisted several cities in its 15-county boundary with planning and funding assistance to produce reuse water. Cities within the District that have reuse programs include Alachua, Archer, Cedar Key, Lake City, Live Oak, Monticello, and Perry. Collectively, this offsets pumpage by about 4.1 million gal lons of groundwater per day. The District is pleased to partner with the City of Live Oak on this project which will reduce groundwa ter pumpage, and we are delighted that Suwannee Country Club want ed to be a part of these efforts, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. Reclaiming water allows us to save our precious groundwa ter supplies, while making beneficial use of high-quality wastewater. We will continue to use this important resource to help meet the Districts future water supply needs.

DEAR ABBY: As the education director of the East Bay Bicycle Coalition, I work hard to encourage safe and courteous cycling for everyday transportation in Northern California. There are a number of points I would like to address to Â“Caring Reader, Sacramento, Calif.Â” (Sept. 13). Â“CaringÂ” described seeing bicyclists run stop signs, not wear protective gear, texting/talking on cellphones, and suggested a greater enforcement of the law. Rolling through stop signs is, indeed, just as illegal as it is while driv-ing a vehicle, except in Idaho where cyclists may treat stop signs as yields. I encourage all cyclists and drivers to come to a complete stop at signs and signals, even when turning right, and especially when pedestrians are present. Talking or texting on a cellphone while biking isnÂ’t currently illegal in the state of California. I feel that using cellphones while biking is an unsafe practice, and I encourage cyclists (or drivers) to sim-ply pull over before mak-ing or taking a call. Helmets are required gear only for bicyclists under the age of 18 in California. As an adult, I choose to wear one when IÂ’m biking. However, it is not illegal for an adult to bike without a helmet. You said in your response that people who cycle at night should avoid wearing dark clothes to increase their visibility, but clothes color alone has been shown to have little or no effect on visibility in dark conditions. During low-light times of day like dawn or dusk, wear-ing bright or fluorescent clothes is a good strategy, but at night bicyclists should rely on lights and reflectors to be seen. The law in California stipulates that bicyclists must have a white headlight, a red rear reflector and yellow or white reflectors on their wheels or spokes as well as on their pedals, shoes or ankles. However, I also recommend adding to these required items: a red rear light, and additional lights and reflectors at the front, rear and sides of the bike, or on oneÂ’s clothing or helmet. Highlighting oneÂ’s silhouette with lights and reflectors, and apply-ing them to moving parts of oneÂ’s bike or body, will increase visibility substan-tially after dark. Abby, thanks for your attention to these issues. Â— ROBERT PRINZ, OAKLAND, CALIF. DEAR MR. PRINZ: YouÂ’re welcome. And thank you for kindly shar-ing your expertise with my readers. DEAR ABBY: Last year, my 40-year-old stepson, Â“Rod,Â” gave his father a beautiful robe for Christmas. The problem is, we had given the robe to Rod for Christmas sev-eral years ago. I didnÂ’t say anything at the time, but, of course, I recognized it because I was the one who had bought it for him. Should I have said anything? Or was I right to have played dumb (which is what I did)? Rod has Â“savedÂ” other presents we have given him and regifted them to us years later. This man has a high-paying job and isnÂ’t hurting for money. I think what heÂ’s doing is insulting. I have suggested not exchanging gifts, but he ignores me. What can I do about this in the future? Â— Â“RECYCLEEÂ” DEAR Â“RECYCLEEÂ”: Rod may have forgotten that he got the robe from you. As I see it, you have two choices. You can be offend-ed, or you can turn it into a joke. For this Christmas, give him the robe back. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Stay alert and be ready to make last-min-ute changes if necessary. Good fortune will be yours if you are astute, articulate and on top of your game. Keep your spending low and your intake high. Follow your head, not your heart. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Get started early and donÂ’t stop until you have completed every-thing on your work list. A chance to look for some-thing that will boost your confidence or update your look will bring about a wel-come surprise. Love is in the stars. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Go where the action is and welcome any challenge that comes your way. Your persistence and bravado will help you con-nect with people who can change your future. The signal you send should be accurate and intentional. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): DonÂ’t leave work unfinished. Consistency will help secure your position. Now is not the time to slow down, but instead is the moment of truth as to what you have and are willing to offer. Romance will lead to an enchanting evening. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): DonÂ’t give in or give up. Spend what you can afford, nothing more. Take a break from people pres-suring you or asking for too much. Good friends and a little entertainment will help turn a demanding day into an eventful evening. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and about. You will find great bar-gains if you shop and inter-esting information if you research or take part in industry events. Romance is on the rise. Socializing with people who share commonalities will lead to good times. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel plans or engaging in social events will give you a chance to interact with people from unique backgrounds. Avoid a feud by staying out of a debate that develops between peers or friends. Physical activity will bring about positive changes. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Fix up your place. Comfort and practi-cality will make you feel at home and encourage you to entertain more. Your relationship with friends, relatives and neighbors will improve if you offer hospitality and cheer. Love is on the rise. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make a quick decision and a fast move. Idle time will be what leads to trouble. Figure out your strategy and donÂ’t waste time pur-suing your goal. A change at home or work appears to be beneficial. Talks will be successful. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Good times are in order. Hospitality will show your heart is in the right place. DonÂ’t feel you have to make a change because of what others do. Be true to yourself and you will not be lead astray. Protect whatÂ’s yours. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): DonÂ’t let money slip through your fingers. Impulse purchases will lead to the poorhouse. Concentrate on ways you can put your talents and skills to better use and earn more in return. Set up a budget and stick to it. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Act on instinct and judge others by how consistent and reliable they are. You can expand your plans and explore new endeavors, but you are best not to get involved in a joint venture. DonÂ’t mix business with pleasure. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Columbia came away with a 1-2 record over the weekend. Lincoln and Chiles high schools both netted wins over Columbia, but the Lady Tigers were able to defeat Maclay. The girls played very well this past weekend, Columbia head coach Lindsay McCardle said. We played Lincoln Friday night and lost 4-1. Krysten Giebeig got the goal in the second half off a break away. It was a nicely placed ball to the corner, beauti ful goal. The girls worked hard, but fell short. In the first game on Saturday the Lady Tigers played Maclay and came away with a 2-1 win. The girls came out hard and definitely wanted the win, McCardle said. It wasnt until the second half that Krysten played a ball to Natalia Pardo, and Natalia found the net to put us up 1-0. Several minutes later, Delanie Redmond found the back of the net to put us up 2-0. Maclay was able to score a goal in the last 10 minutes of the game. I was beyond thrilled to get a hard fought win. Columbia ended the tour nament with a district loss against Chiles. Considering we had played two games prior to that and they had not, I will say they were at an advantage, McCardle said. Chiles mercy ruled us the last time we played them, so to finish the game only going down 3 goals, Id say is progress. I am beyond proud of my soc cer team and the dedication and sweat they are giving every day at practice and in games. Donielle Harrington had over 40 saves during the tournament. Harrington was named the MVP in two of the Lady Tigers three games. She had some amaz ing saves, McCardle said. Im very proud of her. Brittney Lee who played strong in the back, she was consistently on point each game. I even moved her to a forward position to get more speed up top. She played well in both positions, sweeper and for ward. The Lady Tigers travel to Oak Hall School at 6 p.m. tonight for their last game before Chirstmas. Columbia soccer Columbia High fell 5-0 at Gainesville High on Tuesday. The Tigers play host to Taylor County High at 7 p.m. tonight in Lake City. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Fort White High striker Mallory Sealey moves the ball around Columbia Highs Brittney Lee during a game on Oct. 28. Split results for Lady Tigers Jags want to resign Jones-Drew By MARK LONG AP Sports Writer JACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars want running back Maurice Jones-Drew back next sea son. Jones-Drew is doing all he can to make it happen. Hes sharing carries, playing through injuries and complaining about nothing. Hes all in, fully committed to whats hap pening in Jacksonville under coach Gus Bradley, general manager Dave Caldwell and owner Shad Khan. I want to be here, Jones-Drew said. Its a fun environment. Its different than Ive ever been a part of. It works. It takes time to build anything. Its starting to turn around for us, and were starting to play well. Thats exciting. It also might keep JonesDrew from testing the freeagent market. Jones-Drew has three games remaining on a fiveyear, $31 million contract he signed in 2009.
