By AMANDA A s women don their Southern Belle gowns and gentlemen their Confederate gray throughout Columbia County, imagine: a crowd of 1,700 well-dressed socialites funneling into their seats for the 1865 production of Our American Cousin. The date was April 14, just weeks after the Civil War ended. Local talk rumored that President Abraham Lincoln would be in the audience, and the crowd buzzed with excitement especially actress Laura Keene. Keene, struggling to keep her career afloat, finally succeeded in bringing Lincoln to her play in hopes of inspiring excitement for her role as leading lady. Despite a series of backstage squabbles, the closing night performance seemed to be going well. But then, Keenes plans to rejuvenate her stardom quickly disappeared when John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln, escaped from the theater and declared the South avenged. As a kick-off event of the annual Battle of Olustee Festival, the historical events will come to life through the Alligator Community Theaters production of Our Leading Lady at the School Board Administrative Complex Thursday night. Sponsored by the Blue-Grey Army, the production is free to the public. It starts at 7 p.m., but Blue-Grey Army Major Cody Gray suggests people arrive early to get good seats. This play has everything we were looking for, such as comedy, serious moments, lighthearted moments, Gray said, but it also kept true to the Civil War era and historical viewpoint. Prior to the production of Our Leading Lady, local 17-year-old musician Jasmine Hoyton will entertain the audience. She writes her own songs, as well as plays the guitar and the piano. Typically, Gray said, the Blue-Grey Army does not select a play as part of Olustees opening night. However, two years ago, Fort White Thespians Guild delighted the audience with Our American Cousin, the play performed by Keene and her cast at Fords Theater on the night Lincoln was shot.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS BATTLE OF ANNIVERSARY TH Leading Gray Laura Keene was on stage the night Lincoln was assassinated. LEADING continued on 3AFrom staff reportsThe last three months were wetter than normal, with an average of 12.1 inches of rainfall, about 3 inches higher than normal, across the Suwannee River Water Management District, district officials said. January rainfall was 1.8 inches above average. The wettest November-January on record was in 1947-1948 with over 17 inches, and the driest was in 1956-1957 with just 1.4 inches. The wet weather caused groundwater levels in the upper Floridan aquifer to rise in January after falling steadily since the almost record-setting wet summer. Forty percent of the dis tricts monitor wells had levels in the top 25 percent of readings, double the number seen in December, officials said. Conditions on the Santa Fe River are typical for this time of year. Levels on the Suwannee River are higher than usual for early February, but still well below flood levels. Recent rainfall patterns have favored northern Florida over southern Georgia which has helped keep river levels stable without the rapid fluctuations that occurred in 2013. River residents should remain vigilant over conditions in southern Georgia, since a single large storm can cause problems downstream quickly, district officials said, noting February, March, and April are the peak flood season in North Florida.Water levels on the rise with wet weather Groundwater levels higher, says SRWMD. By AMANDA Sharon Neelands always put the children she served first, ensuring the local communities held the resources needed to pull juveniles from the grip of crime and turn them into functioning adult citizens. After 42 years working for the state, Neelands is finally retiring. The last eight years of her career she spent here in Columbia County as the chief juvenile probation officer for the Third Judicial Circuit. The strength of all the Neelands retires after 42 years AMANDA WILLIAMSON/Lake City Reporter Department of Juvenile Justice Third Judicial Circuit staff and assistant chief of probation Tom Witt presented chief probation officer Sharon Neelands with a vase on her second-to-last day in the position. She officially retired Thursday after 42 years on the job.CHIEF JUVENILE PROBATION OFFICERBy AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterThese days, people are used to seeing slick pitches for medical services or medications in television commercials or magazine ads a practice once frowned on by the American Medical Association. But todays medical marketers have nothing on the practices of the past. As part of the Olustee Battle Festival, the Fort White Thespian Guild will be demonstrating Civil War-era state-of-the-art medical advertising, the traveling medicine show. Traveling medicine shows were based on the style of European mountebanks (medical quacks), explained show director Harry Joiner, the drama teacher at Fort White High School and a member of the Blue-Grey Army. Traveling medicine on display at festivalShow times are:10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Friday at the Courthouse Annex parking lot, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday at the Lake City Museum; 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday at both locations MEDICINE continued on 6AColumbia housing market stronger in 2013By AMANDA The Columbia County real estate market experienced positive growth throughout 2013, with many economic indicators trending upward from previous years. Realtors closed on 420 single-family houses last year, a 18.6 percent increase over the 354 sales in 2012. Cash sales jumped 39.5 percent from 124 in 2012 to 173 in 2013, a sign that investors are increasing their participation in the local housing market. Dan Gherna, executive director for the Board of Realtors, said 2013 was much better than 2012 or 2011. I think the market has been stable. 2012 the market stabilized, and 2013 the market definitely had some strong points. Hopefully, 2014 will be better. As a result of increased cash sales, the median sale price declined as a result of increased investment properties, Gherna said. In 2012, the median RETIRE continued on 3A MARKET continued on 3A


2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING THURSDAY FEBRUARY 13, 2014 Page E ditor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 AR OUND FL ORIDA Man charged in reporters killingPENSACOLA The father of a man on trial in the bludgeoning death of a former Pensacola News Journal reporter told jurors on Wednesday of a horrible smell that came from the back of a U-Haul his son drove to his home in Georgia from Pensacola in 2012. It smelled like a dead dog, the father testified. Investigators later unearthed the body of former Pensacola News Journal reporter Sean Dugas from the backyard of the fathers Winder, Ga., home. Dugas body was stuffed into a plastic container surrounded by air fresheners and potpourri and covered in concrete. Prosecutors allege William Cormier III bludgeoned Dugas to death in August 2012 and transported his body from Pensacola to Georgia, leaving the body in the plastic container for more than a week before burying it. During his occasionally combative testimony, Cormier Jr. told jurors that he later received a call from a Pensacola detective asking about Dugas disappearance. The father said he woke his twin sons up and told them about the call. I said, What the hell is going on? There is a detective from Pensacola calling and somebody is missing, he testified. They said they were going to remove whatever was in the backyard. William Joseph Cormier III is charged with first-degree murder in Dugas death. Prosecutors allege Cormier III killed Dugas and stole his $100,000 collection of valuable cards. 13 14 15 16 17Friday Saturday Cape Canaveral 68/52/s 72/52/pc Daytona Beach 68/50/s 70/48/pc Fort Myers 70/54/s 78/56/pc Ft.

To prove it? The doll, which is made by Mattel, is flaunting her frame in Sports Illustrated Swimsuits 50th anniversary issue thats hitting stands on Tuesday. Shell be featured alongside supermodels like Christie Brinkley and Brooklyn Decker as part of a campaign called unapologetic. As a legend herself, and under constant criticism about her body and how she looks, posing ... gives Barbie ... and her fellow legends an opportunity to own who they are, said Lisa McKnight, Mattels senior vice president of marketing. The campaign is a departure for the 55-year old doll, which has been both beloved as a plaything and criticized as an unrealistic standard of beauty for decades.Pistorius settles in alleged assault case CENTURION, South Africa Oscar Pistorius reached a settlement with a woman over an alleged assault case from 2009 because his lawyers advised him he could not fight civil and criminal legal battles at the same time, the spokeswoman for the Olympic athlete said on Wednesday. Double-amputee runner Pistorius, who goes on trial on a murder charge next month, was arrested and accused of causing an injury to a guest at a party at his house five years ago after allegedly slamming a door and then punching it. Pistorius family spokeswoman Anneliese Burgess said the settlement agreement was finalized late last year with Cassidy Taylor-Memmory. She accused Pistorius of assault in the September 2009 incident. Taylor-Memmory was reportedly injured in the leg when the door broke. Burgess didnt give settlement details. Pistorius will go on trial from March 3 on a charge of premeditated murder for the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home last Feb. 14, and also faces other firearm-related charges at the trial at a high court in Pretoria. He denies murder and claims he shot Steenkamp by mistake after believing she was a dangerous nighttime intruder in his bathroom.Jordans wife gives birth to twin daughters CHARLOTTE Michael Jordan has more to be happy about than just the improved play of his NBA franchise.

The bullet missed, and Lincoln survived to enjoy a weekend of celebrations at the annual Battle of Olustee Festival. Gray doesnt expect any surprises during Thursday nights Our Leading Lady. The play premiered at the Manhattan Theater Club in March 2007, depicting the presidential assassination not only as a national tragedy but as a vexing interruption in a womans quest to fame and glory, Gray said. Our Leading Lady follows Keenes attempt to bring Lincoln to her closing night peformance despite a series of backstage quarrels that threaten to hinder the plays performance. Before the guest of honor arrives, she labors to bring the theaters stock company together so they can awe the audience. But after the tragedy, she contemplates her uncertain future. Will she be suspected of helping Booth assassinate the president? Live theater was extremely popular during the Civil War era, a factor in the Blue-Grey Armys decision to start this years events with a well-known play. We always look for something that is unique a draw for people at the festival that isnt something they could find on an everyday basis, Gray said. Having a local group made this that much better. It showcases the talent in our community. The Alligator Community Theater has been preparing for the opening night since November. Many people will remember several of the actors performing in Our Leading Lady from their work in Our American Cousin. I certainly want to encourage people to come out, Gray said. Its a family friendly environment, a night of singing and live theater. These are people that have a lot of talent and have practiced months in preparation for this event to make sure it is a grand theatrical production. LEADINGContinued From 1Asale price for homes sold in Columbia County was $113,250 and declined to $110,000 in 2013. New pending sales, an indicator of potential closed sales, increased to 524 during 2013. The uptick marks a 33.7 increase from 2012, when the number of new pending sales sat at 392. Inventory also jumped from 351 in 2012 to 421 in 2013, a 19.9 percent increase. Both numbers mean people are more confident in the market, Gherna said. Sellers must be testing the market to see if they can get the price they want, he added. For the last three years, sellers have seen an increase in the percentage they receive of their original list price. Over the last year, the percentage increased 1.5 percent and now rests at 88.4 percent. According to Florida Realtors, the number will continue to rise in a recovering market as buyers realize they need to match the selling price or even better it. All of the statistics are showing the market is improved or improving, said Board of Realtors president Susan Eagle. All the reports were seeing show the economy is getting better and home sales are looking to improve. According to her, buyers should jump now before the market transitions to a sellers market. Since 2008, a homes median number of days on the market has been trending downward. For last year, a home sat for a median of 89 days on the market before it sold. Houses are moving now, she said. The inventory theres just not as much for them to look at, not as much for them to chose from now. MARKETContinued From 1Acounties in North Florida Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton is the people in them and their willingness to work together, Neelands said. Ill miss all of them. As chief probation officer, Neelands sees a vast number of children struggling in the juvenile justice system. Lately, her department has made changes throughout the state to help those children become responsible adults. Now, the department issues citations for children who arent repeat offenders. The process allows some first-offenders to keep that history from bogging them down for the rest of their lives. To help the children and their families, Neelands ensures each community offers a wide variety of services. She accomplishes the task by building community partnerships in each of the seven counties in her jurisdiction. I think our biggest accomplishment was having a good staff who worked together, she said. It wasnt anything I did on my own. According to Neelands, she started working for the state when the Department of Public Welfare existed. She transitioned to the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, where she stayed until 1996. That year, HRS was reformed into two separate entities: The Department of Health and the Florida Department of Children and Families. Neelands worked for DCF until 2007 when she moved to her current job at the Department of Juvenile Justice. Her job at DCF, she felt, prepared her to take over as chief probation officer. Because we were a new agency, you might have come for one job, but you had to learn several jobs, Neelands said. You did a little bit this and a little bit of that. About 30 community members and DJJ employees gathered Wednesday morning at Florida Gateway College to celebrate Neelands retirement. The words on her cake read: Best Wishes on Your Next Adventure. Neelands plans to spend Thursday, her last day on the job, packing away whats left of her stuff. The experience of boxing memorabilia collected over the last 42 years brought back a flood of memories, she said. Her dedication and commitment to families has spanned over 40 years and will be missed, said Jill Clemens, the north region director of juvenile probation. She provides expertise based on continually researching evidence-based practices on a national and state level. ... Her training and support of staff in the circuit has left the community in good hands as they move forward. The department has not selected a new chief probation officer as of now, but Clemens said she intends to make a recommendation soon. What Ive found is Sharon is sort of like the oak tree holding fast and steady, said John Hancock, Third Circuit coordinator for DJJ. She doesnt get swayed.... With juveniles, theres so much to do, some much to accomplish that if youre going to do anything you have to remain steadfast. Sharon has been a solid part of the community while shes been here. RETIREContinued From 1A AMANDA WILLIAMSON/Lake City ReporterWreck blocks Bascom Norris trafficA multi-vehicle crash blocked SW Bascom Norris Drive for an extended period of time Wednesday afternoon. Further details were not available at press time.One dead in early morning collisionFrom staff reportsLIVE OAK A Suwannee County woman died in a collision with a log truck here early Wednesday, FHP reports. Tracy H. Deas, 42, was traveling east on US 90 when a 1998 Kenworth tractor-trailer loaded with logs made a right turn in front of her from County Road 137, FHP said. Her 2004 GMC Yukon struck the left side of the trailer. Deas was transported to UF Health Shands, where she was pronounced dead at 8:42 a.m. Wednesday, according to an FHP news release. The driver of the log truck, Eliecer Caceres Labrada, 42, of Ocala, was unhurt. US 90 was closed for several hours, according to FHP. Charges are pending further investigation, the news release said.


F riday was my husbands birthday. We spent it in the car. Not all of it, just four hours. He was driving. I was writing. It worked pretty well. We had an unspoken agreement. He didnt tell me how to write. And I tried not to tell him how to drive. We left our home in Las Vegas around mid-afternoon, to drive to Phoenix for the weekend, to cel ebrate his birthday and see the Warriors play the Suns. My husband is a lucky man. He knows it, but I like to remind him. Not only has he lived to see another birthday not everyone gets to do that, you know but he married a woman who likes basketball and doesnt balk at driving 300 miles to see a game. The day got off to a great start with birthday cards and phone calls and a video from our 3-year-old grandson singing Happy birday, Papa Mark! backed up by his baby brother, chiming in on to you! In the car, his cell phone kept ringing with birthday greetings from family and friends. He put them all on speaker phone so he could drive hands free and I could listen in, even though it wasnt my birthday. We by-passed Hoover Dam, drove on through Kingman, and headed out across the open desert just in time for sunset. The western sky colored up slow ly, painting feather-like clouds in the singular shades of neon pinks and purples and lavenders and grays that Ive come to love in desert sun sets. I wish you couldve seen it. Just past Wikieup a town thats even smaller than the one I grew up in my husband pulled over to take a picture. Hes like that. A sucker for sunsets. I like that about him. I wanted to take a picture of him taking the picture, but I couldnt get my phone/camera out of my purse before he got back in the car. Im like that. Slow. He likes that about me. Back on the road, the sunset gradually faded to black, the shad ows grew long and the desert dis appeared, bedding down under a blanket of night. Oncoming headlights sliced the dark like lasers and stabbed at our eyes. The rough road got rougher, rattling our teeth. My bad knee kept begging for a break, and dinner was still miles away. I dug into the snack bag one last time and fished out a limp stick of celery. It had seemed like such a good idea when I packed it. Meanwhile, on the CD player, the Reverend Al Green began to sing, Love and Happiness, and we had to laugh. A little good music makes a bad road better. An hour later, we checked into the hotel (they left a light on for us), got dinner and sat out on a roof top feeling glad to be alive. We had a great weekend. Ate too much, slept too little and the Warriors, well, they lost. But still, it was all worth the drive. Isnt it always? On the way home, I started think ing about birthdays. In our family, we celebrate four in January, four in February, and all the others throughout the year. Mine is next week. Im not sure how well cel ebrate it. Possibly not with a fourhour drive to a basketball game. If Im lucky, like my husband, Ill get cards and calls and maybe a few videos. I dont need presents any more. When youve seen as many birthdays as Ive seen, the only gift you truly want is getting to see one more. Birthdays are the mile markers on the road of life. They tell us how far weve come, but not how far weve yet to go. Life is a journey more than a destination. The road is harder for some than it is for others, but we all reach the end of it sooner or later. What matters is who we choose as traveling companions, and how often we just sit back and enjoy the ride. Heres wishing you a happy birth day, whenever it may be. No need to send me a birthday card. Unless you really want to.

A birthday journey TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1542, the fifth wife of Englands King Henry VIII, Catherine Howard, was executed for adultery. In 1741, Andrew Bradford of Pennsylvania published the first American magazine. The American Magazine, or A Monthly View of the Political State of the British Colonies lasted three issues. In 1861, Abraham Lincoln was officially declared winner of the 1860 presidential election as electors cast their ballots. In 1914, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, known as ASCAP, was founded in New York. In 1935, a jury in Flemington, N.J. found Bruno Richard Hauptmann guilty of first-degree murder in the kidnap-slaying of the son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh. (Hauptmann was later executed.) In 1945, during World War II, Allied planes began bombing the German city of Dresden. The Soviets cap tured Budapest, Hungary, from the Germans. Associated Press T hat wasnt a rhetorical question. Get Fit, Lake City, the Altrusasponsored citywide challenge, ends this week, and folks all over town are tallying up their losses. (In this case, thats a good thing.) The Biggest Loser contest comes to a close today as contestants complete their final weigh-outs. The competition among businesses ends Friday, as does the one among schools. The latter has been particularly fierce, were told. Results will be announced March 7 in a special ceremony at FGC, complete with a Fun Run for kids and a 5K for adults. Should be a great evening. Meanwhile, great job to the folks at the local branch of Altrusa International for bringing this community-wide initiative to our town. Whatever the final results, Get Fit, Lake City has called our attention to a big prob lem right in our own back yard: obesity, especially among children. We can no longer just shrug it off or pre tend it doesnt exist. We are on notice now, and have no one to blame but ourselves for the serious health problems that will persist should we continue to look the other way. A little girl to remember S hirley Temple is hard to imagine today in Hollywood, or in Topeka or Cleveland, for that matter. She was the sweetheart of an innocent age and a hopeful place that deserved her more than ours, and its difficult to recall the grip she had on the nations heart in a time of misery and desperation. Shirley Temple Black, who died this week at age 85, demonstrated that a child shall lead them to star dom done right. The little girl who danced down the stairs with Bill Robinson Mr. Bojangles and captured the nations heart gave America a wink and a little girls smile to soften the throes of the Great Depression. Franklin D. Roosevelt observed that as long as our country has Shirley Temple, we will be all right. And it was so. From the age of 6, she won over the theater crowds to the delight even of the silver screens harshest critics. Her grace was just what the country needed. I class myself with Rin Tin Tin, Mrs. Black once described herself with the self-deprecating modesty that warmed her charm. At the end of the Depression, people were per haps looking for something to cheer themselves up. They fell in love with a dog and a little girl. It wont happen again. Indeed. Her turn at the top of Hollywoods A-list came to an end, as all such things must. She gave up show business at the age of 22, when most stars are just hitting their stride, and turned to what she found to be far more important, family and public service. She was a mother, a grandmother and eventually a great-grandmother, and succeeded at all three. She was a delegate to the United Nations and an ambassador to Ghana. She was President Gerald R. Fords chief of protocol, the first woman to hold the post. She was President George H.W. Bushs ambassador to Czechoslovakia, where she had a front-row seat to watch the fall of communism. In a town where celebrity mar riages are often measured in months, sometimes weeks and occasionally days, Mrs. Black was devoted to her husband, the late Charles Alden Black, for 55 years. Todays child actors frequently become ambassadors of immorality. To name just one, Miley Cyrus, who at age 11 was the Disney Channels Hannah Montana, a wholesome character playing a teenage pop singer. She grew older, but not wiser. She listened to her managers who told her to deliver increasingly tawdry performances, just for the shock value. Miss Cyrus continues to turn in one vulgar and tasteless performance after another, pursuing fame and wealth. Shirley Temple, the brightest and most bankable star in Hollywood in its golden years, shunned the cheap and the frowzy. She held firmly to her values, once resigning from the executive committee of the San Francisco International Film Festival to pro test a screening of the Swedish film Night Games, which she called pornography for profit. America could embrace another Shirley Temple, unlikely as that prospect may be. With the news of disappointing jobs reports, people losing their health care, higher debt and taxes, a cruise on the Good Ship Lollipop to the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay, a magic place with lemonade stands everywhere, is just what we need. Shirley would make every thing right. She always did. The Washington Times Sharon Randall Sharon Randall can be contacted at P.O. Box 777394, Henderson, NV 89077. 4AOPINION

Local businesses, philanthropists and the Live Oak Community Redevelopment Agency all saw the need to pre serve local history and support the ongoing efforts of Heritage Park. First Federal Bank of Florida, PotashCorp-White Springs and the Suwannee Valley Community Foundation each donated $10,000, with the Live Oak CRA matching the funds for an additional $30,000. Recently, the Friends of Heritage Park and Gardens pre sented these organizations with plaques of appreciation. During the presentation, Ronnie Poole, Board Member of the Friends of Heritage Park and Gardens expressed his appreciation to the organizations for their donation and continued support of the Park. On hand at the presen tation were FHPG Board Members Marlene Mitchell, Marilyn Jones, Ronnie Poole and FHGP Secretary Billy Golightly; Terry Baker, General Manager of PotashCorp; Keith Leibfried, President and CEO of First Federal Bank; James Montgomery, Suwannee Valley Community Foundation Advisory Council Chair; and Live Oak City Councilman Keith Mixon, City Councilman Jacob Grantham, and CRA Director Tim Williams. To truly maximize the potential of Heritage Park and Gardens, the Friends developed a plan to improve the space for meetings, reunions and weddings as well as to provide additional recreational opportunities for the public. The Park officially opened to the pub lic in April of 2013. Major work has already been completed on restoring and reno vating the mansion and gardens, but more work is yet to come. The funds will be used to build a restroom facility and further ren ovate the house and gardens in order to better prepare the prop erty for public use. Keith Leibfried, President of First Federal Bank of Florida expressed his gratitude. “I am grateful to these organiza tions that stepped up to show their support of this park,” Leibfried said. “We are hopeful that our contribu tions will inspire other businesses and individuals to also contribute to this worthwhile organization.” Terry Baker, General Manager, PotashCorp-White Springs said, “PotashCorp’s investment in Heritage Park is an investment in the growth of our Live Oak Community. We are happy to partner with other businesses such as First Federal Bank and the Community Foundation to support this sustainable project.” PotashCorp has a goal to invest one percent of its pre-tax earn ings in projects that improve the world, with an emphasis on the areas where our employees and neighbors work and live. PotashCorp views this as a way to build “roots for the future” that can help the company and com munities grow. Suwannee Valley Community Foundation Advisory Board Chair, James Montgomery stated, “After having a tour of Heritage Park, I am convinced the [Suwannee Valley Community Foundation] Board made the right decision to enter into this partnership with Suwannee County.” The Suwannee Valley Community Foundation is an affiliate fund of The Community Foundation in Jacksonville and was founded in 2002 by a group of community and business lead ers in the Suwannee Valley. The Suwannee Valley Community Foundation is a com munity organization that provides guidance and assistance for estab lishing funds to benefit not-for-profit organizations in Suwannee, Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Union counties. Local organizations donate $60,000 to Hertiage Park.

Mose, locat ed in the historical St. Augustine, Florida. Ft. Mose is the first all black settlement of free black people. These people lived in Spanish Florida in a time when Florida was not part of the United States. The group of travelers consisted of 34 passengers, 17 of which were school-aged children. The bus trip to Ft. Mose is an opportuni ty to discuss black history, and all things that concern the making of it. This year we discussed the cultural contributions to black history and the part such culture plays on progress. The passengers were asked to identify cul tural characteristics that were unique to the black community. The things identified and discussed ranged from soul food, and family reunions to being fashionably late (out of sea son) and self-identity. Students shared ways that changing the cultural norms could positively impact the progress being made. The statement of one child set off a nerve for most adult passengers to such degree that fur ther discussion and focus is warranted. A little girl on the bus felt that if “adults would mind their own business, the commu nity would be better off.” Imagine for a moment, sitting in your car at a stop light and watching a young child wander aimlessly into traffic. Do you sit until they cross? When you notice the direction of the child is unknown, do you park and get out and offer assistance? Or do you call for help? Whichever you choose, something would be wrong if you drove uninterrupted by the child’s presence. To observe practices fatal to the progress and develop ment of our children, is to watch them walk aimlessly in traffic. The more significant the decisions are to the ability of the child to be safe and develop rep resents the busier the traffic is that you are met aphorically observing. Research shows that parental involvement improves a child’s chanc es of being successful aca demically, without regard to who the parent is. Research shows that chil dren with higher levels of self-esteem are better positioned to make posi tive choices while becom ing young adults, without regard to who instills the self-esteem. Research shows that little girls who feel loved as children are less likely to become teen parents, with out regard to who displays the love to them. The con cept of the Village is need ed to raise our children to be the best they can be. We are all members of the tribe called “humans”, and everyone is needed in the business of our Village. HISTORICALLY SPEAKING Q Befaithful Coker is the executive director of It’s About My Efforts. Bea Coker By BEA COKERSpecial to the Reporter Dr. Smitherman, was born to southern family in Birmingham, Ala., where his father served as a rev erend. Young Smitherman saw his father’s church burn down twice during their push for voting registration. He would later become a pioneering executive and professional chem ist at Proctor & Gamble who led the way for other African-Americans at the prestigious company in the 1960s. He was the first black person with a doc torate hired at Proctor & Gamble. With a Ph.D in physical organic chemistry, Dr. Smitherman, developed a number of incredibly popu lar patents, including Crest toothpaste, Safeguard soap, Bounce fabric softeners, Biz, Folgers Coffee and Crush soda, to name a few. Not only are they still on the shelves, but many of them are on display at the Cincinnati Museum Center in the featured exhib it, “America I AM: The African-American Imprint.” Smitherman was nicknamed the “Jackie Robinson of Proctor & Gamble.” After 29 years there, he turned in his lab coat to work as a professor at Wilberforce University. After serving at the historically black college, Smitherman turned his attention to starting a high school called the Western Hills Design Technology School to help black stu dents perform better in math and science. By BEA COKERSpecial to the Reporter Minnie Thomas was one of eleven children born to a farming couple in Wellborn in 1923. Both her father and mother worked on the farm as did the children when they were not attending school. Thomas said that she didn’t enjoy farm work but accepted it to be a required chore in her family. She attended Groom School up to the ninth grade and then briefly attended Springfield School. She married Tom Thomas and moved to Lake City in 1948. Mr. Thomas worked as a cook and Mrs. Thomas tended her house while raising the couple’s five children: Linda, Patricia, Yvette, Tocama, and Lendrick. Thomas recalls the difficulty of working together as a couple to the focus was on providing for the children. After divorcing her husband, Thomas remained in Lake City and became an independent, hard-work ing single mother. She retired from Lake City Community College and now enjoys her 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.Fulfilling a dreamThomas discussed the racial condition in our community and our world in terms of fulfilling the dream of Martin Luther King Jr. With tears in her eyes, she expressed her concern that the community does not realize that we still don’t love each other as Martin Luther King Jr. died trying to help us to realize. She shared that the children don’t always understand and there fore can’t appreciate the efforts are being made to protect their future. She said the adults are so busy trying to find the answer that they overlook the impact they can have on their children. I asked Thomas what was her recommendation for resolve. She responded, “If we lived with integri ty, empathy and humility we could make lasting improvements.” We love you, Mrs. Minnie, and your almost century of wisdom is much needed by all today.

CALENDAR “When a mountebank came to town, he would put on an entertainment inter spersed with sales pitches for whatever treatment or medicine he was selling. These men depended on their ability to read an audi ence and manipulate their hearers to their wills.” Entertainments might include dramatic sketches, magic acts, strongman exhi bitions (which allowed the mountebank to extol the vir tues of his product for pro ducing strength and vigor), music and acrobatics. The tradition of European mountebanks was already centuries old when it reached American shores during the colonial period, and it remained essentially unchanged for decades. But in the 1850s it began evolving into a more Americanized form, draw ing on local entertainment traditions such as minstrel shows. At the time of the Civil War, most medicine men were independent, hawking their own elixirs and pills, but by the 1870s a traveling medicine show was increasingly likely to be working for a manufac turer of patent medicines or medical devices. Most of the cures were worthless and some were downright dangerous, lead ing to states’ attempts to regulate these shows as early as the 1770s. But the shows remained popular up until the death of the patent medicine industry in the 1930s, not only because of medical ignorance but because they provided rarely-seen entertainment in small towns and rural areas. While the purpose of the show was to sell medication or medical devices, only about 10 per cent of the show actually revolved around the direct sales pitch; the rest of the time was taken up by enter tainment and “spieling,” a form of storytelling which introduced the cure-all and laid out enticements to buy it while weaving a tale that appealed to the audience. While no two traveling medicine shows were ever exactly alike, Joiner’s thes pians will be presenting what might be considered a “typical” show for the Civil War era. The presentation will open with a “day in the life” scene of a town hall meeting. This will set the stage for the medicine man’s arrival with his bottles of “Chief KeCouey’s Imitation Fresh Water Elixir” and the opening of his show. Within the show, the audience will be treated to a tale of the North’s evil attempts to kill the noble South during the war, interspersed with scenes from Shakespearean dra mas the medicine man will use to illustrate the main themes of his story. The last such scene, the famous balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, will lead into a flirtation show, in which couples will demonstrate the 19th-century art of passing courtship mes sages via handkerchiefs, ribbons, parasols and flow ers. Finally, the medicine man will give his sales pitch for the marvelous elixir, “straight from the Itchetucknee Springs.” Fortunately, those who decide to spend a dollar on the “medicine” will not be getting anything more dangerous than a drink of water (not, of course, from the Itchetucknee River or its springs). But whether the audience buys or not, they will be getting a taste of a bygone era and the his tory of American popular entertainment. MEDICINEContinued From 1A

RSVP to Michelle Glenn at 497-5952, Ext. 251.Q From staff reports Indians look to make run By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High’s basketball team gets to enjoy the fruits of its district championship labors with a home play-off game, the first for the school. Fort White hosts Trinity Catholic High of Ocala at 7 p.m. today. The Indians are district champions in 5-4A, while the Celtics are runners-up in District 6. Today’s opening round is the region quarterfinals. In the other half of the mini-bracket, District 6 champi-on The Villages High hosts District 5 runner-up Santa Fe High. The next round is Tuesday. Trinity Catholic opened its doors in 2000, the same year as Fort White. The Celtics made the basket-ball playoffs from 2003-07 and again from 2010-12, but have never advanced past the first round. Williston High knocked them out in 2012. Coach Matt Greathouse was on board in his first year for the 2011-12 sea-son. “We don’t know a lot about them,” Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. “They have a 6-9 center and a point guard who shoots the ball very well. Those are their two big scorers. To me the matchup looks a lot like Suwannee, with a real good guard and a strong center.” While Fort White swept Suwannee in the regular sea-son, the Bulldogs handed the 22-2 Indians one of their losses in the Hitchcock’s Basketball Challenge tour-nament in Alachua over Christmas break. “They were at Bradford (Fort White’s district tournament), so they know a little bit about us,” Phillips said. “We will have to adjust as we go into the game.” During Saturday’s district championship celebration, Phillips expressed some concern. “We have got a team that can’t slow the ball down,” he said. “We have got to keep playing.” Phillips spoke to that on Wednesday, and said the Indians need to concentrate on what they do and not the opponent. “My thing is play hard every night,” Phillips said. “Work on things we do bet-ter and focus on cutting down on our mistakes. We will continue to run and press. That’s what got us here.” Here happens to be Fort White’s first district cham-pionship in basketball and the first-ever home playoff game. The Indians made the playoffs last year and went 1-1 on the road. “The players are excited and the school is excited,” Phillips said. “They don’t realize what a good thing it is to play at home.” While not looking ahead, Phillips is not satisfied. “We won district, but we don’t want to settle for that,” he said. “We want to go for it all.” TIM KIRBY /Lake City ReporterFort White High players celebrate the school’s first basketball district championship following a 61-53 win over Santa Fe High in Starke on Saturday. The Indians host Trinity Catholic High in a region quarterfinal game at 7 p.m. today. Fort White not satisfied with district title win. Tiger wrestlers headed to stateBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High will send three wrestlers to the Class 2A State Wrestling Tournament in Lakeland on Friday with expectations for all to place. “The program as a whole has done really well this year,” Columbia head coach Kevin Warner said. “We sent 13 to districts and 13 to regionals, which is more than we ever have. We’re making a good push.” The Tigers will send three more to state with Kaleb Warner (132), Dustin Regar (138) and Jake Maguire (145) represent-ing Lake City. Warner said a handful of other wrestlers competed well at regionals, but just missed out. Leading the charge at state will be the younger Warner, who has a chance to win in his weight class. The only thing that stands in his way is an opponent that ranks No. 11 in the nation and a possible matchup in the semifinals. “Dylan Lucas, from Brandon, is the No. 11 ranked wrestler in the nation and the way the bracket sets up, Kaleb will meet him in the semifi-nals,” Kevin Warner said. “That’s just the way it sets up with this being our first year wrestling in 2A. That team is really good and have won something like 15 state titles.” Kevin Warner didn’t rule out the possibility that his son could take Lucas down with a good performance. “We’re going to have to wrestle great to get past him and if we do, the state championship is there for the taking,” Kevin Warner said. “There’s no reason, even with a loss, to not come back and take third. It’s probably going to take our best match, a little luck, to win state. Either way, he’s probably the second best wrestler in the state of Florida pound for pound.” Kevin Warner also feels that the rest of his team has a legitimate shot of ending up on the podium at the end of the weekend. “Dustin saw this last year, even though he didn’t wrestle, and he knows how big of an environment it’s going to be,” he said. “Jake is a state qualifier from Kentucky, so he has a great chance to place.” Kaleb Warner will meet Jonathan Crunkilton of New Symrna Beach High in the opening round. Regar will face Bryce Ballsinger from Venice High and Maguire will take on C.J. Trammell from Venice High. All of the opening matches will take place at 10 a.m. If the wrestlers win both of their matches on Friday, they will only wrestle twice. Splitting their results will require a third match. There will be 16 wrestlers competing in each of the weight divisions. Four wins without defeat are required to be crowned the state champion. Columbia High sends three to try to grapple title.

The 39-year-old New York captain posted a long letter on his Facebook page Wednesday saying that 2014 will be his final year. A 13-time All-Star who has led the Yankees to five World Series champion-ships, Jeter was limited to 17 games last season while trying to recover from a broken left ankle sustained during the 2012 playoffs. “I know it in my heart. The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball,” he wrote. “I have gotten the very most out of my life playing baseball, and I have abso-lutely no regrets,” he said. Jeter was the last link to the powerful Yankees teams that won three straight World Series crowns from 1998-2000. Longtime team-mates Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte retired after last year. “Derek Jeter is Mr. Yankee of his era,” Yankees co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner told The Associated Press. “He was the face of one of the great-est teams ever.” But Jeter’s joyride hit a big speed bump recently. “Last year was a tough one for me. As I suffered through a bunch of inju-ries, I realized that some of the things that always came easily to me and were always fun had started to become a struggle,” Jeter wrote. “The one thing I always said to myself was that when baseball started to feel more like a job, it would be time to move for-ward.” “So really it was months ago when I realized that this season would likely be my last. As I came to this conclusion and shared it with my friends and fam-ily, they all told me to hold off saying anything until I was absolutely 100 percent sure,” he wrote. “And the thing is, I could not be more sure,” he wrote. Jeter hit just .190 with one homer and seven RBIs last season.


DILBERT BABY BLUES DEAR ABBY CELEBRITY CIPHER BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: Earlier this year, my sister “Kathy” was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation, and will begin reconstructive surgery soon. Because of her diagnosis she encouraged me to visit my doctor for an exam. When I did, they found a lump, which needs further testing. I have chosen not to share this with my fam-ily because my sisters and parents have been deeply affected by Kathy’s diag-nosis, and I don’t want to cause them needless worry. My husband is angry and he said that because Kathy is their favorite they wouldn’t be concerned anyway. I thought it was insensitive and cruel to me, but more to the point, I felt he wasn’t thinking about how upset my doing so might make my fam-ily. Am I wrong to feel this way? — NEEDS FURTHER TESTING DEAR NEEDS FURTHER TESTING: Certainly not. Your husband’s comment illustrates the impor-tance of keeping one’s mouth firmly shut if one can’t think of something helpful or sup-portive to say. It almost appears that he is angry at you for the questionable test result. I can’t blame you for not wanting to upset your already stressed family at this point, but if more testing confirms that you, too, have breast cancer, I think it’s important that you let them know -especially your sis-ters, who might want to be screened sooner than later. I hope your husband’s apparent inability to support you emotionally during this difficult time is an aberration, but if it’s not, you will need to find support elsewhere. DEAR ABBY: About 15 years ago I committed a crime against a woman I cared about. I have felt guilt and remorse about it ever since. I can’t speak to her or have any contact with her. I would like to tell her I’m sorry for what happened. I have beaten myself up over this and thought about sui-cide. What do I do? Please help, Abby. — SO SORRY IN ST. JOSEPH, MO. DEAR SO SORRY: The first thing you must do is talk with a mental health professional about your suicidal thoughts. Once you have been stabilized, you should then understand that you may have been forbid-den to contact your former friend because what you did was so traumatic that it could cause her to relive the incident, which could fur-ther victimize her. If you’re looking for forgiveness, for-give YOURSELF and move on -but leave her out of it. DEAR ABBY: Is there some sort of etiquette regarding inquiring about someone’s country of origin? While making polite conversation with a customer in my retail shop, I noticed she had an accent and asked where she was from. She became very evasive and seemed offended that I had asked. She actually refused to answer my question. I tried to recover from the awkward situation, but I can’t help but feel I insulted her somehow. Was I wrong to ask? -FRIENDLY RETAILER IN KANSAS DEAR RETAILER: Perhaps. Some immigrants to this country feel the question you asked is a very personal one. There can be various reasons for it. The person may feel self-conscious about his or her accent, and you can’t know the political situation in the person’s country of origin or whether he or she has encountered bias because of where he or she came from. HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Complete unfinished business, then take a little time to do the things you enjoy or to be with someone you love. Make plans or find a way to build up your assets. Invest, make a move or set up a new budget. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid meddlers trying to find out about your pri-vate business. Focus on the things you want to do and the people you enjoy spend-ing time with most. Make changes to your home, but ask for approval if you’ll affect others. ++GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Talk will get you what you want. Your charm, coupled with your confident way of expressing your ideas, will draw attention and should result in offers. Be sure you don’t exagger-ate or promise something you cannot deliver. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Expect to experience changes regarding how you earn your living. Don’t let anything or anyone upset you or cause you to falter when you should be focused on doing the best job pos-sible. Overreacting will be what gets you into trouble. Stay calm. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leave important decisions until you feel certain you are making the right choice. A change of scenery will help you clear your mind, giving you a fresh look at old prob-lems. Be careful with money and possessions. Loss is likely. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take charge. Don’t be afraid to express what you want and your plan for mak-ing your dreams come true. Include the people you care about in your plans and you will find a way to get things done faster. Love is high-lighted. 3 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take note of how others are reacting. Listen care-fully, remain calm and look for reasonable solutions that will buy you the time and the freedom to do the things that interest you the most. Use your intuitive intelli-gence and you will get your way. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Learn from past mistakes. Don’t let emotions interfere with decisions that can influence how much you earn or the way you do busi-ness. Be creative and handle domestic matters unconven-tionally and you will bypass or put an end to any trouble you face. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of medical, financial or legal problems before they esca-late. It’s important to make necessary changes at home before they are forced on you. Helping others will show your concern and bring you something good in return. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Do whatever needs to be done. Asking for help or depending on someone else will lead to disappointment. Poor infor-mation regarding a financial matter is likely. Do your research before you spend on something that can influ-ence your assets. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Serious talks will bring interesting results. You may not see the value in what’s being offered ini-tially, but look closer and you will discover a multitude of options that will help you advance. A change of heart will be to your benefit. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Don’t be confused by what others do or say. Rely on your own resources to find out exactly what you need to know in order to close a deal or invest in something of inter-est. Romance will improve your personal life. +++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Woman stays quiet about breast exam to ease her family’s woes Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

Lady Tigers improve to 3-0 to begin the seasonBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High hasn’t done anything to show that its not the same team it was at the end of last sea-son. The Lady Tigers have came out swinging in 2014 and are 3-0 after a 5-2 win at Orange Park High on Tuesday. The Lady Tigers haven’t trailed in a game yet this season and led throughout against the Lady Raiders. Erin Anderson picked up the win after pitching all but the final out. Anderson struck out eight batters and allowed eight hits in the contest. She walked one batter. Ashley Shoup came in to record the final out. “Erin has that complete game mentality this year,” Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. “She doesn’t want to come out and she has the ability to finish it.” Columbia was not only good in the field, but the Lady Tigers have also been good at the plate. The Lady Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the second inning and never looked back. Anderson led off the inning with a single and Hollinanne Dohrn moved her to third with a base hit. Lauren Eaker the squeezed in Kelby Hogan, who was running for Anderson. Kayli Kvistad hit a solo homerun in the third inning to give Columbia a 2-0 lead. “The long ball is kind of our story right now,” Williams said. “We just need to find a way to hit them with more runners on.” Anderson had her second hit in the fourth inning and scored off a throwing error after Eaker bunted. With a 3-1 lead heading into the final inning, the Lady Tigers added some insurance. Lacey King walked and scored off a double by Caleigh McCauley for a 4-1 lead and McCauley scored off a wild pitch for the Lady Tigers’ final run. “The way the bottom of our order came through was a really good job,” Williams said. “They had opportunities and were able to take advantage.” Columbia’s game was canceled against Gainesville High on Wednesday. The Lady Tigers travel to P.K. Yonge at 6 p.m. on Friday.Fort White softballFort White High’s softball team lost, 15-0, to Bradford High in Starke on Tuesday. The Lady Indians host Bronson High at 6 p.m. today. Fort White’s football team will be honored before the game. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Megan Zahnle returns a serve against Orange Park on Feb. 4. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comDespite suffering its first loss of the sea-son, Columbia High head coach Tabatha McMahon feels the Lady Tigers’ ten-nis team played beautiful tennis on Wednesday. “The scores do not reflect how well we played,” McMahon said. “They were freshman matching up against juniors and their coach told me that we were his biggest competition in the new district.” Fleming Island 5, Columbia 2 Singles No. 1 — Cassidy Lear lost, 1-8; No. 2 — Megan Zahlne lost, 5-8; No. 3 — Tori Jackson lost, 4-8; No. 4 — Brittany Helms won, 8-5; No. 5 — Chase Broome lost, 2-8; Doubles No. 1 — Lear/Zahlne lost, 5-8; No. 2 — Helms/Jackson won, 8-5. Columbia (2-1) hosts Oak Hall School at 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 21. Fleming Island nets CHS first loss Harvick can’t be ignored in 2014Associated PressDAYTONA BEACH — Kevin Harvick took his first spin in his new Stewart-Haas Racing ride and immediately felt at ease. It was three days after Harvick had wrapped up his stint with Richard Childress Racing and he was turning laps around Charlotte Motor Speedway with his new team in a rare December test. Any anxiety he had over leav-ing RCR after 13 years van-ished. “I told them on Lap 2 at Charlotte, ‘Thank you guys very much. You have just confirmed every reason that I came here to drive this car,’” Harvick said. Nearly 15 months after his surprising decision to leave Childress to drive for good friend Tony Stewart, Harvick will finally make his SHR debut this weekend at Daytona International Speedway. His first race will be Saturday night’s exhibition Sprint Unlimited, the first of two Speedweeks races Harvick won a year ago in his so-called “lame duck” season. He felt all season that nobody had high expecta-tions for him back then and proved everyone wrong with four wins. Now, with the slate wiped clean, he has made clear what he’s chasing at SHR. “I expect to win and race for a championship,” Harvick said. “That’s why I came here.” Very few will make the mistake of overlooking Harvick this season, for two very different reasons. He has established himself as one of the top closers in the business, and many of his wins have come from being in the right place to capitalize in the waning laps. That will come into play in this year’s over-hauled NASCAR scoring system, which will reward winning over consistency — all the way to the dra-matic winner-take-all sea-son finale. NASCAR Chairman Brian France has revamped the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship into a 16-driver elimination sys-tem that will be whittled down to four eligible driv-ers racing for the title in the finale. The first one across the finish line takes the grand prize.
