The NWS of Jacksonville announced a light freeze pos sible [for] Thursday night for Southeast Georgia and the Suwannee Valley of Northeast Florida, in a Wednesday morning bulletin. The system of frigid arctic air, commonly known as a polar vortex, may be the third and final event of its kind as the winter weather continues to peter out in time for March 20, the Spring Equinox and official change of seasons. Further to the south at the leading edge of the initial shot of arctic air, a frontal boundary [continued to] focus convection along the Gulfcoast [Wednesday], according to a Wednesday statement from the NWS Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Md. Moisture drawn from the Gulf [fueled] some organized areas of moderate to heavy rains over this region [Wednesday], especially from the central Gulf coast into North Florida. The NWS predicts a high of 61 for today and a low of 32 tonight with mostly cloudy skies gradually dissipating to sunny conditions tomorrow morning. Temperatures are expected to rise into the weekend with a high of 67 tomorrow and a low of 40 Friday night. Saturday and Sunday highs will hover between the upper 70s and low 80s with lows ranging from the upper 40s to mid 50s.

According to CHS assistant principal Kay Dekle, the event teaches students what to expect in high school, as well as their graduation requirements. Usually the event draws around 500 to 600 students and their parents, but the crowd tends to be incoming 9th graders and 10th graders. Its so important for a student to start planning for their future now, Dekle said. The Educational Fair starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs until 7:30 p.m. Each grade level should meet in different areas of the school to begin the evening. Incoming freshman will head to the auditorium, incoming sophomores will report to the cafeteria, and incoming juniors and seniors will report to the media center. Guests will receive food coupons in their respective areas, redeemable for a free hot dog meal with chips and a drink. The opening informational session, Dekle said, will be presentations by the English, science, social students and math teachers. Each teacher should provide students and parents a brief overview of what to expect in the class.

The vote was taken Monday. Recovery strategies are required to be established when a water body is below or is projected to fall below an MFL. The MFLs developed for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee Rivers and Priority Springs indicate that they are in need of protective actions to ensure proper water flow to prevent significant harm to the ecology. The MFLs for these water bodies were developed using the best available science. An independent peer review of the data, science, and conclusions was then conducted by the University of Florida Water Institute. At the January meeting, the committee submitted a formal set of consensus recommendation statements pertaining to the proposed MFLs and Recovery Strategy to the Suwannee River and St. Johns River water management districts and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The recommendations support efforts to move forward with the recovery strategy plan for these water bodies. The updated draft was in response to the committees recommendations. An overview of the updated Draft Recovery Strategy will be presented to the Suwannee River and St. Johns Stakeholder committee unanimously supports Draft Recovery Strategy COMMITTEE continued on 3AIts so important for a student to start planning for their future now.

Already the church members had gutted the ceiling and walls, replaced vinyl paneling over the exposed innards and rewired the home twice. According to Reverend Jim Chase, his congregation decided to spend their yearly mission trip helping Tropical Storm Debby victims in Lake City, many still suffering more than a year and a half later. We just feel thats what the Lord wants us to do, Chase said. Certainly we get to meet a lot of neat people, and we get to worship with them. ...

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 AROUND FLORIDA Field set in race to replace Radel TALLAHASSEE — Four Republicans, a Democrat and a Libertarian are run ning to replace a disgraced Florida congressman. Qualifying for Florida’s 19th Congressional District closed at noon on Wednesday. The four GOP candidates will square off in an April 22 primary. The general election is June 24. Trey Radel, who pleaded guilty to cocaine-possession charges last year, resigned from Congress in January. The Republicans who qualified are State Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benacquisto, former state Rep. Paige Kreegel, former Purdue University basket ball star Curt Clawson and Michael Dreikorn. The two other candidates are Ray Netherwood, a Libertarian, and Democrat April Freeman. Timothy Rossano qualified as a write-in candidate but his name will not appear on the ballot.Anthony speaks on baby sitter ORLANDO — Casey Anthony maintains that a baby sitter her attorney acknowledged was fabricat ed at her 2011 murder trial is a real person. Anthony, who has been in hiding since her trial, was questioned in a Jan. 23 depo sition related to her ongoing bankruptcy proceedings. A transcript of the deposi tion was filed Tuesday in Orlando federal court. According to the transcript, Anthony told Gonzalez’s attorneys she met the baby sitter at Universal Studios in 2006 and the women were friends for a year. She said she left Caylee in her care on one occasion in 2006.

Photographer Jason Winslow was in a parking lot outside the Sandy Springs Funhouse family entertainment complex when security guard Hugo Hesny told him to leave, according to a police report. Winslow continued to shoot photos from farther away. Hesny then chased him, cut him off, opened the door of Winslow’s vehicle, took Winslow’s camera and drove away, the photographer told police. Hesny, 32, of Davie, Fla., is charged with robbery by snatch, Sandy Springs police Capt. Steve Rose said. He is sched uled to appear in court Thursday in Atlanta. Bieber was not outside and was not part of the argument, police said. Big changes ahead for frequent fliers on Delta DALLAS — Delta Air Lines is changing its frequent-flier program to favor passen gers who buy the priciest tickets instead of those who fly the most miles. It’s a bid to lure higher-spending busi ness travelers, who often book flights on short notice and pay more than bar gain-hunting leisure travelers. Beginning next year, Delta will base miles toward free flights on the amount that passengers spend on tickets. Currently, members of its SkyMiles pro gram earn miles based on how far they fly — it doesn’t matter whether they bought an expensive first-class seat or the cheapest ticket in economy. Delta will become the biggest U.S. air line yet to make such a change. American and United are likely to watch to see how travelers respond. Wednesday’s announcement wasn’t a total surprise. Delta had already taken steps toward rewarding big spenders. A year ago, it announced that starting in 2014 passengers would need to spend at least $2,500 with the airline to qualify for the lowest level of elite frequent-flier status, which carries perks such as free upgrades and a waiver from bag fees. Before that, they could qualify on miles alone. United quickly matched Delta’s change. “If you’re a corporate traveler, this is good for you,” Randy Petersen, editor of InsideFlyer magazine, which tracks the airline-loyalty business, said of Delta’s move. “The infrequent traveler clearly is the loser here.” Scripture of the Day The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth. — Chinese Proverb “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” — 1 John 4:9-10 See an error?

The show, sponsored by ONeal Roofing and Drs. Chuck and Robin Hall, will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Levy Performing Arts Center. The show replaces the scheduled performance by the Dragonfly Orchestra, which was forced to cancel its 2014 U.S. tour. We felt this was the perfect replacement show for this time of year, said Troy Roberts, FGC public information coordinator. Daylight Saving Time will have just begun, the college spring break begins the following day, and a lot of people are going to be planning beach vacations. Its tough to think of the beach and summer weather without the music of Jimmy Buffett. Led by Jason Webb, Caribbean Chillers will perform all of the Buffett classics you know and love Come Monday, Volcano, Cheeseburger in Paradise, Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, and, of course, Margaritaville. The Florida-based band has been together since 2003, following the release of Its Five O Clock Somewhere, a collaborative effort between Buffett and Alan Jackson. But Webb had been singing Buffett tunes well before then, starting back in the 1980s when he arrived in Florida. Im originally from Baltimore, so when I moved to Florida, all I knew of Buffett was Margaritaville and Come Monday, Webb said. I had a lot of people tell me that I sounded a lot like him, so theyd bring me cassette tapes so I could learn his music. It all kind of started there. And what started as a niche musical showcase of island escapism music in 2003, when they performed about 60 shows throughout the year, has transformed into a year-round tour consisting of more than 200 performances annually. Season ticket holders will automatically have seats to the Caribbean Chillers performance. Tickets are now available and can be purchased online at www.fgcentertainment. com or by calling (386) 754-4340. Prices are $15 for general admission and $10 for FGC students, staff, and faculty.

A Hamilton County native, Finnell earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Valdosta State in 1996, arrived in Lake City in 1997 and became an instructor and advisor at the FGC (then Lake City Community College) registered nursing program from 1999 to 2001. She continued her studies at the University of Florida and became an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner in 2002. She currently practices at Southern Internal Medicine as an ARNP and continues to provide instruction and guidance on the job for nursing students working toward their accreditation. She was elected to the Columbia County School Board in 2012 when Glenn Hunter vacated his seat to run for superintendent the same year. Its very important to have a mom on the schoolboard, which they did not have at the time, Finnell said, referring to her 15-year-old son Garrett, a freshman at Columbia High School. I have spent a lot of time visiting schools to find out what teachers and staff need, she said. I find it extremely rewarding and want to continue being an advocate for everyone and will always be the listener they need...The community likes having a school board member who shares their views and will always be an advocate for them. Since she took over for Hunter midway through his term, Finnell must run again in 2014 to maintain her seat. People say to me, we know to come to you because youll get it done, she said. I find it a great privilege to serve as a school board member in our community.

T his is not, as they say, my first rodeo. I know the drill. I’ve done it plenty. But it never gets easier saying “goodbye.” Some years ago, when my husband changed jobs, we left our families and friends in California to move to Las Vegas. It wasn’t easy, but we made the best of it. Our one big regret is the 500 miles it puts between us and the people we love. So we try to visit often, especially since adding grandchildren to the mix. The difference between grown children and grandbabies is not how you feel about them. I love and miss mine all the same. But the little ones change overnight. Skip one month in the life of a toddler and you’ve got to start all over. Not only will he forget you, he will look and act like an entirely dif-ferent child. My grown kids don’t change quite that fast. And if I don’t get to see them for a month, at least I know they’ll remember me. They’d better. I’ve spent a lot of years chiseling my name in their memory banks. I started when they were born: “I’m your mama,” I whis-pered in their tiny ears, “don’t you dare forget me.” I said it so often that in time I didn’t need to say it. I could just give them a certain look and they knew what I meant. So far it seems to be working. Either they remember me or they’re pretty good at faking it. The grandbabies are different. I don’t see them often enough to do much chiseling. But I try. For starters, I send them stuff. Books, usually, that cost $3.99 and ship for free. I order online and a few days later, I get a call from a lit-tle voice: “Thank you for my book, Nana, I yuv it!” Every time they see a FedEx truck, they shout, “Nana!” When I go to visit, as I did this week, I try to spend time alone with each of them (preferably without their parents) doing whatever they like best. Randy is 3. He likes to build train tracks. I built a trestle that went nowhere and he doubled over laughing when I showed him how trains can fly. Henry is 2. He likes to play with his jungle animals. So I threw a jungle party and they all showed up: the lion, the rhino, the gorilla, the giraffe. And we danced until I dropped. Wiley is 1. He likes his mama. I can’t do much about that. But he also likes to eat. So I fed him his favorites: eggs for breakfast, yogurt for lunch, pizza for dinner, crackers for snacks. And he gave me a big Wiley kiss. I bathed them, diapered them, zipped them in their jammies and read 50 books, give or take. (“Goodnight, Gorilla,” “Giraffes Can’t Dance” and “Snuggle Puppy” were the biggest hits.) Randy said, “Thank you, Nana, for being my nana.” Henry called me his “little darling.” Wiley point-ed at me with his chubby finger and grinned. Then I tucked them in bed, rubbed my face in their curls and asked God to watch over them forever and always and bring their parents home soon. It was easy. Exhausting, yes. Even my teeth got tired. But it was a breeze as it always is to do some-thing you were born to do. The hard part, as usual, was having to say goodbye. It’s an unnatural act to leave someone you love – especially a child who can’t understand why you show up for a few days to build train tracks and throw jungle parties and let him eat too many crackers, only to get on an airplane and fly away. There is no way to explain it. So I kissed their parents and promised to come back soon. Then I hugged those little boys tighter than I should and whispered in their ears, “I’m your nana, don’t forget me.” Then I flew home and went online to send them more stuff. You can’t buy love. You can only give it freely and hope to get it back. But $3.99 is a small price to pay for a memory. At least until they’re teenagers and want me to buy them a car.

BY EMAIL: A new chapter begins From good books to goodbyes F or students of Columbia High, a new chapter begins this evening with the school’s educational fair, at which they will peruse course offerings for the coming year. There’s the standard fare, every bit of it important – English, math, social studies and science – but the real attraction, for many students, is the slate of electives. Journalism and yearbook are just fine, and remain top choices. But look what else there is now.Logistics.Criminal justice.Veterinary assisting.And, coming this fall, an aviation academy. Plus dozens more that folks from an earlier generation might never have imagined in a high school. Supt. Terry Huddleston, who pioneered the logistics program at CHS as principal there, has long been a champion of diversifying the curricu-lum, making sure there’s something for every intellectual palette. Our small district has become a model for others attempting the same across the nation. More than anything, though, this is about rebooting the workplace for a 21st century economy. Many students who graduate with certificates in these specialized fields will go right to work, earning quite a bit more, in some cases, than their teachers. That will give them incentive to study.And lay the foundation for future growth here as well. When business look to relocate, they look first to places with a well-trained workforce. We’re getting a good start on that goal, thanks to our local school system.Ramis really made us laugh H arold Ramis didn’t have a face familiar to many Americans, even though he shared a marquee with Bill Murray in “Ghostbusters” and made cameo appearances in other movies. But everyone knows his work – “Animal House.” “Caddyshack.” “Ghostbusters.” “Groundhog Day.” “Analyze This.” Classic after classic after classic. Ramis’ strength, his passion, was writing and directing. His brilliant work shaped not just the baby boomer generation of com-edy but inspired the next ... and the next. Like Olympians who display consummate skill after years of practice, he made it look easy. It isn’t. “Comedy ... is very difficult,” he told the Chicago Tribune Magazine in 1983, while he was working on “Ghostbusters.” “Even to make a stupid joke work takes a certain kind of intelligence that’s not apparent in the content of the joke. In ‘Meatballs,’ for example, the kids are coming out of mess hall, and you hear Bill (Murray) saying: “Here’s an update on today’s lunch. It was veal. Veal. The winner of today’s mystery-meat competition is Billy Posner, who guessed, ‘Some kind of meat.’” Ramis laughed. “Now that is a different way to handle it than just having kids look at their plates and go ‘yuck.’” The late comedian John Candy, who co-starred with Ramis on the landmark 1970s television series SCTV, said: “He taught us a lot of discipline. We were always writing long stage pieces. Harold would come in and just slash, slash, slash. Initially you thought it was something you did. Why does he hate me? But he was always explaining, ‘There, this is what’s funny right here. Cut right to it.’ He always kept saying, ‘Just think of yourself watching.’” Ramis was a driving force on SCTV. One of our favorite scenes: Dr. Sloan, Unnecessary Surgeon. Sloan to patient: “I’d like to operate to remove your mucus membranes.” Later, after the operation, the patient moans: “Doc, doc, I don’t want to bother you, but, ah, I feel like my shoul-ders are gone.” Doctor: “Oh yes, I took the liberty of removing your shoulders. Don’t worry, though, your health insurance should cover it.” Over the years, Ramis, who died Monday at 69, gathered film accolades and friends, returned to the Chicago area where he grew up, and became a cinematic guru here. The successful Hollywood director who shucked LA because, as he told the Tribune in 1999, it was too much like high school. “Am I popular? Am I cool? Am I in? Who’s the in crowd? How do I get into that party? These are not things I ever wanted to worry about. Here I’m so liberated from that.” Chicago was the better for it. You could run into Ramis at a Starbucks in Glencoe or a diner in Northfield. He’d flash that big smile, the hint of subversiveness dancing behind the glasses and arched eyebrows. He felt at home. He was. Thanks for the laughs, Harold. Q Chicago Tribune Q Sharon Randall can be contacted at P.O. Box 777394, Henderson, NV 89077. Sharon Randall www.sharonrandall.com4AOPINION

there was a need in Lake City. They organized the trip through United Way of Suwannee Valley’s Long Term Recovery Plan. Efforts to restore safe, san itary and secure conditions began with United Way contacting the local homes registered with FEMA. Though United Way received grants and dona tions to aid with the Tropical Storm Debby recovery, the number of households requiring assistance exceed ed available resources. So far, the organization has helped rebuild 24 homes. “Obviously, we couldn’t do this without volunteer help because there just wasn’t enough money,” Roger Whiddon, United Way construction coordi nator, said. “We still have clients we aren’t able to help until we get more volunteers. ... We’ve told everyone just to hold on. We will get to you as soon as possible. We were over whelmed by the numbers.” The house on Rebel Place experienced water damage when rain blew sideways into the home, causing the ceiling to sag. When the Federated Church of Charlton arrived, the ceiling, walls and floor all required repairs. They started work Monday and expect to be finished by Thursday after noon. In the meantime, their time has been spent con structing and renovating. Thankfully, Chase said, the group consists of individuals skilled in carpentry, plumb ing and electricity. Their missionary trips tend to draw an average of 10 people from the church, the exact number assist ing United Way in Lake City. Eight people helped on home construction Wednesday, while two pro vided work as United Way office aides. “You come here, the people are unbelievably nice,” said Peter Manseau, a full-time contractor in Massachusetts. “Back home, nobody would offer you a cup of coffee. They just say ‘I’ll be back and it better be done when I return.’” The further south the group travels, the more hospitable the locals, he added. As the group flew south ward, they didn’t have any expectations for what they would see when they arrived in Lake City. They just knew they planned to help someone. “The homeowners always share stories we can take back home,” Manseau said. “They share their stories, and we feed on that. That’s where we get our energy to continue our mission trips.” Since Sue Pelletier was young, she has worked on constructing homes. She helped her father reno vate her childhood home as a youth, and then later helped her husband build their home. Now, she’s the church’s expert electrician. The group installed new wiring, but discovered it blew the circuit when they flipped on the lights. Tuesday night ended with Pelletier frustrated, but she fixed the issue Wednesday by creating a power source for each light. “I’ll never forget the homeowner,” she said. “It’s an emotional, spiritual and rewarding experience that makes us want to come back each year. ... I’ve been on four mission trips. This has been the best experience yet, and I didn’t think anything could beat New Orleans.” In June 2012, Tropical Storm Debby made landfall on the Florida Coast, after soaking the state for four straight days while it brewed in the Gulf. The storm deposited up to 30 inches of rain on North Florida, caus ing an estimated $12 million in damage locally.

Responsible adults are those who, along with empathy, pos sessed some genuine care and concern for the children that crossed their paths. The most memorable of the experiences came from my 7th and 8th grade PE coach. To rebellious children, she was given a name that carries with her even today: “Mrs. Trouble.” This name came not because of her own actions, but because of the fear that came with her presence if you were not doing as you were instructed. Mrs. Trouble still holds that title at age 80. I shared with her recent ly that her intentional and soul-piercing stares managed to keep me from becoming a just another statistic long after her physical education instruc tion in my life ceased. I received the opportunity to say thank you to her after almost 30 years. I held her and told her how much I didn’t appreciate her watering the seed of my conscience then, but how I am ever so grateful for it now. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Guide a child in the way they should go and when they grow up they will not part.” As I sat with Juanita Caldwell (Jones) I could hear her words to me as a child: “‘Be faithful, Befaithful.” I could only think of all the negative things she could have said to me, but she didn’t. Instead she chose not to judge me by my actions but to be a constant reminder that because my life held much potential, much was expected of me. As we embark upon the close of this wonderful opportunity we have experi enced celebrating the culture and history of our fellow Americans, I want to leave with these words. “Preparing for a world of honor, respect and dignity, among self-suffi cient adults requires preparing our children to accept the opportunity to manifest great ness. Our actions today must be different today for a differ ent world tomorrow. Tell the children how beautiful they are. Tell them that they are the descendants of kings and queens and have every oppor tunity to be whatever they are willing to work hard for in this world.” Thank you so very much, Lake City Reporter for your continuous plight to embrace the challenges in our commu nity and express them in a way that demonstrates empathy, kindness and care for each other. Preparing today for our kids’ tomorrow HISTORICALLY SPEAKING Bea CokerQ Befaithful Coker is the executive director of It’s About My Eorts. By BEA COKERSpecial to the Reporter Prior to the 1840s the two major political parties were the Whigs and the Democrats. The Republican Party formed in the late 1840s and early 1850s out of abolitionist Democrats and northern Whigs. In 1856, the Republican Party overtook the Whig Party to become the great rival of the Democratic Party. The Republicans were almost all in the non-slave states. In 1857, a major issue in the property rights of slave owners played a signifi cant role in advancing the Republican position when the Supreme Court that was then dominated by Democratic Party appointees. Declared in the Dred Scott decision, a slave remained the private property of his owners, even in a non-slave state. They went further than that, however, implying that no state had the right to deny a citizen the right to put his private property, includ ing slaves, anywhere he saw fit. Republican Party candidates for local office and the House of Representatives dominated the elections in Northern states in 1858. American citizens were upset with the decision and as a result, in 1860, the Republicans nominated Abraham Lincoln. Northern Democrats nominated Stephen Douglas, whereas Southern Democrats nominated John C. Breckenridge. Lincoln narrowly won the race with promises of maintaining the Union, but his election nevertheless prompt ed South Carolina and several other Southern states to secede. The Republican party took on the virtuous role of favoring the abolition of slavery and improving the lives of economically deprived citizens, both black and those of European descent. Republicans supported the Confiscation Act (freeing the slaves of soldiers fighting the Union), the Emancipation Proclamation (which was intended to abolish slavery in the Confederate states) and the 13th Amendment (which did abolish slavery in the re-united United States). They also pushed for the establishment of the Freedmen’s Bureau. Freed slaves, with few exceptions, joined the Republican Party, giving it a presence in the South for the first time. Many blacks were elected to local and state offices. For the ex-slave-owners, the situation was intolerable, and the solution was terrorism. After 1876 few black Americans were able to vote in the Southern states. As a result, black politicians could not be elected to office; in the South no Republicans could be elected to office at all, and the influence of blacks within the national party was minimal. The first black congressional repre sentative was a Republican, John Willis Menard, representing Louisiana in 1868. All 23 Black Americans in Congress prior to 1935, were Republicans. Test your history knowledge: The development of Republican PartyBy BEA COKERSpecial to the Reporter In 1933, an angel was born in Lake City. She wasn’t like the angel depicted in Highway to Heaven and quite frankly many adults may say that a smile was never seen on her youthful face. Nonetheless, on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, this angel has spent the last 40 or so years. Juanita Caldwell, as she con tinues to be called by those who refuse to accept that she moved into the next phase of her life, was and continues to be an extremely focused individual. She was the seventh of thir teen children born to a moth er from Charleston, S.C., and a father from Lake City. Hard work was the way of the Wilson family’s life. She recalls being so involved in the lives of her broth ers Clayton and Jerome that it felt as though she raised them. By the time Mrs. Caldwell entered sixth grade, she knew she desired to be an educator. She considered and planned on education in the fields of physical education, science or music. Goal-setting was a skill she mastered very early and kept pressing on. She graduated high school and immediately attended Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, and participated in singing in the choir. She later attended Bethune Cookman, and worked as a short order cook and played basketball until she graduated. Upon graduation she worked at the high school in Crestview for two years, teaching music and physical education. She returned to Lake City and taught at Richardson as a substitute teacher, and then at the request of school officials in White Springs, she taught at Carver School. Mrs. Caldwell returned to Lake City and contin ued teaching physical educa tion until retire ment in 1994. Mrs. Caldwell loved children and spent much time working with the youth choir group of Mt. Pisgah AME Church. In 1996, she married the love of her life, the late Deacon Jones. Jones brought with him four children that would become the pride and joy of Mrs. Caldwell, including Cora Velle Boulware, of Centerville, Ga., Odell Jones of Lake City, retired Sergeant Randolph Jones of Texas and Lulu Mae Jones of Tallahassee. These children have given Mrs. Caldwell over ten grand children to love and impart her wisdom on and she is ever grateful. I asked Mrs. Caldwell what Black History meant and whether it remained needed in today’s culture. She responded, “Black his tory is an opportunity to instill pride in not only children but adults who need to know that they belong to something and have done some good.” She further expressed her heart’s desire to see adults plan ning to achieve goals that would make their lives and that of their offspring better. As she shared stories of her nine-year-old granddaughter’s inquisitive nature, we laughed about the question she’d posed: What would life look like if Eve had relinquished the rib for the creation of Adam. We didn’t dare answer the question, but both found humor in the thoughts of chil dren today. We love you Mrs. Caldwell for all of your knowledge and wisdom and contributions to our community.

Honoring volunteers From staff reports The Columbia County School District’s 5,724 volunteers give over 160,000 hours of service last year, equaling over $2,985,600 in value. According to district volunteer coordinator Dorothy Spradley, the Outstanding School Volunteer Award is presented annually to school volunteers who have shown dedication and com mitment to quality education in Columbia County. “They are parents, grandparents, senior citi zens, people who might live near a school, and high school and college students who earn aca demic credit for their volunteer work,” Spradley said. “They are retirees who want to stay involved, young at heart and who enjoy helping children learn.” The volunteers are selected based on the num ber of hours served, years of service and unusual type of contribution. The district presents an award to a youth, adult and senior volunteer. Volunteers were selected from each of the county’s 14 schools and honored Tuesday night during the School Board meeting.

From staff reports By ROB CHAPMAN Special to the Reporter The concept behind this outdoors series of articles is to highlight our immense opportunities in North Florida, both on the water and land, while allowing our readers to share reports and photos. Ill be teaming with my brother, Captain Jon Chapman, whos a certi fied charter captain and has written on the Florida out doors since 2009. Together we look forward to sharing our passion, utilizing the explosive growth of social networking with input from readers and our partner ship with the Lake City Reporter. I hope our readers learn a few things, with guid ance from professionals in the industry who live and breathe outdoors, while keeping it light-hearted and fun at the same time. Worst case, well keep you up to date on whats biting, not biting, gobbling, rutting or even getting away! For my inaugural column Id like to highlight the inshore fishing from our big bend region as we draw near to the end of winter, in what proved to be the most unbelievable trout fishing Ive ever experienced. Every fall, eager fishermen wait for the transition to the win ter fishing from Suwannee to Keaton Beach. Its typi cally marked by boats dot ting the river entrances and creeks like screaming girls at a Luke Bryan concert, as the inshore species such as redfish, trout, and even sheepshead transition from the flats to the protection of the creeks. Typically, anglers have their go-to holes where they anticipate the fish stacking annually, and year after year these same holes produce. Sometimes theyre stacked with redfish, other times trout make an appear ance, and as most anglers have experienced their bite can turn on, and turn off on a dime, as the water slips North Florida provides plenty of inshore fishing.

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 27, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: Should I or shouldn’t I tell my boss that more than a few peo-ple have come to me ask-ing if he is fooling around with a young woman here in the office? He is married; she is not. They spend a lot of time together “just visiting,” laughing and obviously flirt-ing. They have also been seen coming and going together, having lunch together every day, etc. My reaction is that whether they are or aren’t, it isn’t my business. A little voice keeps telling me that, as his personal secretary, he may want to be made aware that people are talk-ing about him behind his back, and I do feel protec-tive and a sense of loyalty to him. Understand that I do not want to discuss it with him, have verification, denial or anything else -only to give him the infor-mation. — VASCILLATING IN OHIO DEAR VASCILLATING: If there is anything going on in your employer’s busi-ness that distracts from the work his employees are doing, he should be made aware. DEAR ABBY: A few years ago, I relocated to a new state and bought my first home. I have enjoyed the privacy I have had while living on my own. However, because of the economy, I may need to rent out my extra room to make ends meet. I have gotten used to a clothing-optional lifestyle and spend most of my time outdoors sunning, swim-ming and doing yard work in the buff. Would it be OK for me to advertise for someone who also enjoys this? Can I continue my lifestyle “au naturel” or must I go back to covering? — NEVADA NUDE DUDE DEAR NUDE DUDE: While practically anything goes in the want ads and on the Internet, your best bet would be to Google “nudists (or naturists) in Nevada.” When you do, you will find contact infor-mation for nudist resorts and clubs, and your chances of finding a renter who won’t be shocked or offended will be better. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I love each other and have three beautiful children, but we struggle in our marriage because of the stress of daily life. Lack of money has taken a toll. Sometimes we both work two jobs. Other times we find ourselves faced with dif-ficult choices -like whether to buy groceries, or pay the electric bill or the mortgage. I know we’re not the only family in this situation. You often advise people to seek guidance from a professional coun-selor. Can you share any resources for those of us who do not have the money or the insurance coverage to pay for coun-seling? — HOLDING ON IN ARKANSAS DEAR HOLDING ON: Because you are unable to afford a private therapist, contact your county depart-ment of mental health and ask what services are avail-able for people with limited resources. The psychology department at your nearest university may be able to help. HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21April 19): Sharing is fine, but only if you receive something of equal value in return. Resentment will set in if you have been taken for granted. Protect your possessions and refrain from donating. It’s time to put your needs first. ++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Keep your conversations light and free from gossip. Don’t make promises that will end up causing emotional stress. Acquiring knowledge will open doors to new friend-ships. Changes must be made for the right reasons in order to bring the best results. ++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Don’t let laziness or a lack of realism stand between you and your success. Stick to what you do best and focus on getting ahead and you will reach your goal. The motives behind someone’s assistance may be ques-tionable. +++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): You’ll have to be imaginative and prepared to wheel and deal in order to get things done on time and to your satisfaction. Simplicity, directness and affordability should all be incorporated into what-ever you decide to pursue. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Whether money is owed to you or by you, it’s time to pay up. Set a budget or payment plan that is doable for you or the person who owes you. A partnership will falter if equality isn’t maintained. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Socialize with people who have something to offer. Put greater emphasis on the way you present and promote who you are, how you look and what you have to offer. Love is on the rise and romance will brighten your personal life. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participation will make the difference. You can sit back and wait, or you can be forward and go after what you want. Don’t let a lazy attitude or demanding people be the reason you remain station-ary. The pressure is on to get cracking. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): It’s important to ask for a straight answer when dealing with emotional matters. Don’t confuse issues by making excuses or letting others get away with something that will ultimately end up being your responsibility. Take action. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Address issues that have been hanging over your head. Be proactive and precise and you will get to the bottom of a situation that needs proper attention. Make a good decision, move or change in your life. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Weed out confusion by taking care of business pertaining to your past. Whether it is an investment that needs to be altered or a friendship that is dragging you down, the time to act is now.

Other species known to inhabit these same holes are man grove snapper, black drum, sheepshead, flounder, sea bass and more. This year, I experienced a new way to fish the winter months. A traditional pat tern would be to anchor up-tide and fish the bot tom with jig heads tipped with shrimp in these holes, river mouths, and oyster bars. Its a technique that has been tried and true for decades on our coast. This time Captain Brent Lyons decided to challenge me with a new way to fish the colder water temperatures. I admittedly grew up a live bait guy, so I was eager to learn new techniques for winter artificial fishing. On my first trip with Captain Lyons, we left at 5 a.m. with temperatures so cold I thought we might hit an iceberg en route to the first flat. Perfect for flats fishing? Not even close. Or, so I thought I began by throwing my favorite topwater lure, and he started with a pink soft plastic bait. Its my typi cal pattern; I love throw ing the biggest topwater I can find from sunrise until mid-morning, while the sun is at a low angle. It typi cally produces action at least when the water isnt 54 degrees. On this particu lar morning, Captain Lyons had four strikes on his first cast, and then proceeded to catch three nice trout on the next three casts. I stuck with my topwater out of pure stubbornness, like a dog with its favorite bone. In under an hour he had produced nine trout between 18 inches and 23 inches, and I didnt have single sniff. The scoreboard read like the halftime score at this years Super Bowl blowout. Fortunately, I didnt have Richard Sherman taunting me throughout this anni hilation. Instead, Captain Lyons took me under his wing and taught me his Jedi mind trout tricks. This is where a skilled guide can change the way you fish. Brent was fishing with a Shimano CI4+ 3000 reel equipped with 10lb spiderwire invisi-braid, 25lb fluorocarbon leader, and a custom MHX light 7 rod. If thats too much technical jargon think light light reel, light line, light rod. I watched as he seemingly made the lure dance in slow motion, and I eventually switched to the same combination. It took about 15 minutes to break every habit I had with artificial lures fast, violent, aggressive, and I eventually slowed it down to a mind numbingly slow pace. Within minutes I had a solid 21-inch trout, and then one after another. This continued through out the day as we boated more than 100 trout using this same technique. Cast. Work slowly. Hook fish. Catch fish. Rinse hands. Repeat. There were a few key points to our success. The retrieval rate must be S-LO-W. Im talking as slow as one of those Twilight movie plots (no, Ive never watched one). When you think youre working slow enough, add more time. The unspoken secret to fishing on the flats this time of year is theres virtually no bait on the flats. So, if you can keep it in their strike zone long enough, you increase your odds tenfold. A sensitive rod is also instrumental. Sometimes the trout bite in the win ter is so subtle, you dont even know its a bite. Think about how slow fish move in cold water, there simply wont be aggressive bites. A light rod, with so much sensitivity you can feel a fish breathe, will change your flats fishing. At one point, utilizing these new techniques, I caught five consecutive trout on five consecutive casts, and on the sixth cast I had a big trout pop the lure all captured on video! The footage can be viewed at the Outdoors360 Facebook page. Captain Brent Lyons is located in Lake City and fishes out of an 18 9 Action Craft from Jacksonville to Cedar Key to Keaton Beach. He can be reached at 623-7625.
