I just want everything to go well, she said. Theres been so much planning. As president of the senior class, Holmes responsibilities only got larger as graduation approached. She was in charge of choosing speakers for the ceremony, as well as organizing the details of the event.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING SUNDAY, JUNE 1, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Q Associated Press Q Associated Press LAKELAND P olk County deputies say a 61-year-old Lakeland man who was gored by a bull and crawled to safety is hospital ized and recovering. Junior Ezar Bessinger was attacked Wednesday and suf fered broken bones and gashes covering his upper body. The Lakeland Ledger reports that Bessinger was at the Cattleman’s Livestock Auction and loading two bulls and a cow into a chute that led to a trac tor-trailer when one of the bulls turned on him. The black-and-white bull rammed Bessinger, stomped him and gored him several times with its horns. Officials said Bessinger man aged to crawl out of the pen and call 911 with a broken clavicle and a collapsed lung. Adviser charged with false distress MIAMI — A Georgia invest ment adviser already accused of stealing millions of dollars before vanishing for 18 months is facing new charges in Florida. Miami federal prosecutors say 47-year-old Aubrey Lee Price of Valdosta, Georgia, sent a letter in June 2012 indicating he would commit suicide by jumping from his boat off Naples, Florida. The letter resulted in the Coast Guard responding unnecessarily to a false distress call, a federal crime. The charge carries a maxi mum six-year prison term. Price is jailed in Georgia await ing trial for allegedly embezzling $17 million from investors. He is also charged in New York with securities and wire fraud. Price was arrested last New Year’s Eve on Interstate 95 in Georgia by a sheriff’s deputy who thought his truck’s win dows were tinted too dark.Cops: Fla. daycare worker abused child WEST PALM BEACH — A West Palm Beach daycare work er has been released from jail after police say she abused a child under her care. Police say 38-year-old Zully Ruiz-Yapan of Greenacres was seen on video surveillance abus ing a 2-year-old at the Apostolic Child Development Center. Authorities launched an inves tigation after another toddler was hospitalized with injuries apparently suffered after an object was shoved in the child’s mouth. Ruiz-Yapan has posted a $6,000 bond. Jail records didn’t say if she had an attorney.Bondi: Recognizing gay marriage harmful TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s attorney general contends in recently-filed court documents that recognizing same sex mar riages performed in other states would disrupt Florida’s existing marriage laws and “impose sig nificant public harm.” Eight gay couples and the American Civil Liberties Union sued the state in federal court in March. The lawsuit argues Florida is discriminating against the couples by not recognizing same-sex marriages performed in states where they are legal. Attorney General Pam Bondi, a Republican who was named in the lawsuit along with fellow Republican Gov. Rick Scott and other state officials, earlier this month filed a lengthy response that asks a federal judge to throw out the lawsuit for several reasons, saying a federal court shouldn’t rule on a state’s mar riage laws. Bondi’s office also argues that the state has a legitimate interest in defining marriage as between a man and woman. Florida first banned same-sex marriages nearly two decades ago and voters reinforced that ban when they passed a constitutional amendment in 2008.

Man who accosted Pitt pleads no contest LOS ANGELES — A man who accost ed Brad Pitt on a red carpet pleaded no contest to battery Friday and was ordered to stay away from the actor and Hollywood red carpet events. Vitalii Sediuk entered the plea during a court appearance Friday afternoon, two days after he leaped from a fan area and made contact with Pitt at the “Maleficent” premiere. He was sen tenced to three years of probation and attend a year’s worth of psychological counseling. Sediuk, 25, was also ordered to stay away from Pitt’s partner Angelina Jolie and stay 500 yards away from the Hollywood block where movie premieres and the Academy Awards are hosted. He was also ordered to stay away from LA Live, a downtown entertainment com plex where Sediuk crashed the Grammy Awards in 2013. He was charged earlier Friday with four misdemeanors, including assault and two counts governing conduct at sporting and entertainment events. He also pleaded no contest to unlawful activ ity at a sporting or entertainment event and the remaining counts were dropped. Sediuk is a former journalist for the Ukrainian television station 1+1, which fired him roughly three weeks ago.‘Gangnam Style’ hits 2 billion YouTube views NEW YORK — It’s 2 billion and counting for Psy and his irrepressible “Gangnam Style.” The South Korean pop star’s surprise hit has become the first YouTube video to surpass 2 billion views, crossing the mark around shortly before midnight Friday. The unlikely viral star holds the record for most overall views and most views in a day with 38 million for his “Gangnam Style” followup “Gentleman.” No other video comes close to “Gangnam” on the streaming service’s list of top videos. Justin Bieber’s “Baby” is the only other billion-plus video at 1.04 billion views. Cute kid video “Charlie bit my finger — again!” is a distant third with 711 million views. Psy has three of the top 15 videos on the site.Clinton makes brief appearance at BookExpo NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton made a brief, private appearance Friday at publishing’s annual national convention, BookExpo America, and offered booksellers a few details about her upcoming memoir, “Hard Choices.” Clinton’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, told The Associated Press that the for mer secretary of state and possible pres idential candidate met in the late morn ing with some 100 American and interna tional booksellers for about 45 minutes. The event was not open to the press and Clinton departed without visiting the floor of the Jacob K. Javits Center. Clinton has said that her book, com ing out June 10, will not be a Washington “soap opera” and has indicated for a long time that she will focus on her work as secretary of state and not on her bitter 2008 primary battle against Barack Obama. But “Hard Choices” apparently will at least refer to that time.Court gives OJ lawyers a week to resubmit appeal LAS VEGAS — O.J.

AUDREY E SIKES, MMC City Clerk From staff and wire reportsWASHINGTON Beset by growing evidence of patient delays and cover-ups, embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned from President Barack Obamas Cabinet Friday, taking the blame for what he decried as a lack of integrity in the sprawling health care system for the nations military veterans. Obama, under mounting pressure to act from fellow Democrats who are worried about political fallout in the fall elections, praised the retired fourstar general and said he accepted his resignation with considerable regret. But the president, too, focused on increasingly troubling allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at veterans hospitals around the country. We dont have time for distractions, Obama said. We need to fix the problem. U.S. Rep Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, on May 23 called on Shinseki to leave. I respect Secretary Shinsekis decision to resign, Yoho said in a prepared statement. I look forward to the appointment of a new Secretary of Veterans Affairs who will get to work fixing the systemic problems that are rampant throughout the department. In the meantime, I will continue to support legislation that ensures timely access to care for our veterans. Especially allowing veterans, who are backlogged in the system, to go to other hospitals at the VAs expense. Veterans put their lives on the line to sacrifice for us. It is our duty to ensure they have access to care upon their return. The president appointed Sloan Gibson, the No. 2 at the Veterans Affairs Department, as temporary secretary as the search for a permanent successor began. Obama also asked Rob Nabors, a top White House aide who has been dispatched to the VA to oversee a broad review, to stay for the time being.Shinseki resigns amid VA problems Yoho Representative Yoho last month called for VA head to leave. By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comTwo Lake City men were arrested early Thursday for possession and intent to produce methamphetamine. Phillip Warren Black, 35, of 8992 SE County Road 245, faces charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of chemicals used to produce methamphetamine. Shane Dakota Eitenior, 38, of 8992 SE County Road 245, faces identical charges. Columbia County Deputy Sheriff Calvin Lee was patrolling the area around Bible Camp Road at about 11:19 p.m. Wednesday when he noticed a gold Chevy Blazer sitting at the boat ramp, according to an arrest report. He turned on his spotlight and got out of his car to confront the two white males sitting in the Blazer when Eitenior, the driver, exited. Lee asked him what he and his passenger were doing on the road and was told that they were going night fishing in the Santa Fe River, the report said. The two men were asked for identification, and Black, the passenger, was asked to exit the vehicle. The men complied. Lees search of the vehicle revealed a black bag containing items used to produce methamphetamine, the report said. The men were booked into the Columbia Detention Facility shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday.Two face charges for possession of meth Black EiteniorFrom staff reportsColumbia County American Legion Auxiliary Unit 57 would like to thank everyone who supported Poppy Days.

Klausner Lumber is building the sawmill eight miles from the heart of Live Oak, in the area between U.S. 90 and I-10. The mill will process Southern yellow pine into lumber for construction. The mill is the type of project lawmakers hoped for when the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity established incentives to lure companies to catalyst sites areas specifically chosen for economic development via the Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern program. Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern are defined as rural communities, or a region composed of rural communities, that have been adversely affected by extraordinary economic events or natural disasters. To bring Klausner Lumber to Suwannee County, more than $5 million of incentives were given by both state and county. Tim Williams, director of the Live Oak Community Redevelopment Agency, said the mill is expected to open and begin operations in July. KLAUSNERContinued From 1ABy MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City woman was arrested Thursday morning after allegedly harming a small child at her home. Erika Hathaway, 28, was charged with battery and cruelty toward a child. Columbia County Sheriff's Deputy Chad Guerry responded to 201 SW Aspen Glen on word from dispatch that there had been a physical altercation in which a baby may have been struck by accident. When Guerry arrived he approached a woman who was holding a small child in her arms. She told him that Erika Hathaway kicked her bedroom door open during a verbal altercation at 7:35 that morning, the report said. The woman told police that she has been living with Hathaway until she can afford another place. After Hathaway kicked the door, she grabbed the woman by her hair and punched her, the woman told police. According to the report, Hathaway also struck the woman on the top of her head and hit the baby as well. The baby was hit by accident, the woman believes. Medic 5 with Lifeguard EMS performed a "quick medical evaluation," the report said. No injuries were found on the baby, but the woman suffered a small knot on her head, according to the report. Hathaway told police that she and the woman have been arguing with each other since Wednesday. She admitted hitting the woman, but denied hitting the baby, according to the report. Hathaway was placed under arrest and transported to the Columbia County Detention Facility without incident. Bond was set at $6,000. The Department of Children and Families has been notified by police and will be file a report of the incident.Woman struck child, deputies say Hathaway Photos by SARAH LOFTUS/Lake City Reporter LEFT: Glenn Tillman, left, and Lou Witt examine featured artist John Rices paintings.

Box 1709, Lake City, FL 32056; or drop off at 180 E. Duval St. downtown. BY FAX: (386) 752-9400. BY EMAIL: S tate Sen. John Thrasher may be the best can-didate to become the next president of Florida State University. But that proposition is unlikely to be tested, because thanks to a rigged process, he’s likely to be the only genuine candidate for th e job. Thrasher, the St. Augustine Republican who represents Flagler County and part of Volusia County, was nominated to be head Seminole last week by former FSU President Sandy D’Alemberte. A university com-mittee promptly suspended its search for other can-didates until after it interviews Thrasher and decides whether to offer him the job. Just how many people will apply for a position in which every indicator suggests those doing the hiring have already made up their minds? Although he bleeds garnet and gold, and previously served on the FSU Board of Trustees, there’s no doubt about Thrasher’s primary appeal: his political clout. He is a former chairman of the Republican Party of Florida and a former speaker of the House. He’s also the chair-man of Gov. Rick Scott’s re-election committee. His connections in the Legislature would give FSU formi-dable muscle in securing state funding. He’s already demonstrated his willingness to use his power to his alma mater’s benefit. As House speaker he secured a new medical school for FSU over strong opposition from the University of Florida and the University of South Florida, and he dismantled the Board of Regents because he felt it was too pro-UF at the expense of FSU. Nevertheless, university professors and students on the search committee are unhappy that Thrasher is t he front-runner — or the only runner — for the preside ncy because he lacks a background in education. Make no mistake, fundraising is a job requirement for mo st university presidents. But some experience in acade mia would be useful to better understand faculty issues a president must deal with, and to give credence to t he inevitable paeans to higher learning he must delive r. It’s not unusual for former politicians to become heads of colleges, but some have also spent time in the ivory tower. Volusia County native T.K. Wetherell, for instance, served as speaker of the Florida House during a 12-year legislative career before he became president of FSU. He also had a doctorate in educa-tion administration, served as president of Tallahassee Community College and worked at Daytona State Community College (now a state college). As for D’Alemberte, after six years in the Legislature he served as dean of the FSU College of Law before becoming the university’s president. The politicization of the Thrasher nomination was evident in a comment D’Alemberte made to the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper: “In an ideal world, I would not say that John was the best candidate, but in the world we live in I would say he is the best candi-date.” Maybe that attitude is part of the problem with higher education today, where spiraling costs and battles for funding take precedence while the value of some diplomas declines. Thrasher may prove qualified, but he should not be inevitable. He should compete against other candidates in an open process — assuming any can be persuaded the deck isn’t already stacked against them. Politics dominates FSU search Q Daytona Beach News Journal Sunshine deprivation syndrome R ecently I had the privi-lege to talk with groups of eighth-graders at Lake City Middle School as part of the Lake City/Columbia County Chamber of Commerce’s Workforce Development series that sees busi-ness leaders from the community spend time talking with the stu-dents about their future. We were asked to talk about our local business and what we do, how many people we employ and what our role is in the community. Individually, we were asked to share our educational path and the work experience that led us to our indi-vidual position with our company. We spoke to regular-sized classes, then after a time, the students rotat-ed and a new group came in. It’s in its first year, but the program has a lot of merit. It was deter-mined through discussions between school and Chamber officials that workforce development in Columbia County was essential and eighth-grade students are at the pivotal point in their educational careers to begin the discussion. They need to be at least thinking about their futures. Eighth-graders at LCMS, Richardson and Fort White expe-rienced the seminars. There were businesses of all sizes, individually owned small businesses, corpo-rately owned larger businesses, new businesses and traditional legacy businesses in Columbia County. In my sessions, I went through the details of what we do as your local, community newspaper serving Lake City and Columbia County. I also talked briefly about my education, what I did and didn’t do in high school and college, and my work experience along the way. I explained how I arrived and put down roots in Lake City, my new hometown. I talked about the importance of serving your com-munity and giving back in some capacity. Then, by design, I turned the tables on the students and asked for a show of hands as to how many of them already knew exactly what they wanted to do for their career for the rest of their lives. At least half the hands went up in each of the classes. I was blown away by the focus and drive of the eighth-graders at LCMS. They were mannerly, focused and very detailed in what they wanted to become. For a collection of 14-year-olds, they dis-played an inspiring confidence. Physical therapist. FBI agent. Mechanical engineer. TV com-mentator. Marine biologist. Video game programmer. Armed Forces. Veterinarian. There were solid choices, to cite just a few of the stu-dents’ dreams. Everyone who shared their career ideas, I asked them a follow-up question about what their plan was to get from dream to reality. They all had the right ideas. Excel in school. Stay out of trouble. Get the specialized education, if neces-sary, to obtain their chosen career. I encouraged them all to go for it! I told them to create a plan, then work the plan. I was amazed at how much thought and preparation each one had put into their chosen career choice. Our Lake City kids are smart, driven and can compete on any level. They have strong educa-tors pushing them in the classroom and it was obvious they have strong role models among their families and friends who are encouraging them to succeed. I explained to them that as an eighth-grader, my career focus was on becoming a Major League Baseball player and a rock ’n’ roll guitarist — at the same time. My reality is that while I learned three chords, the truth is I can’t play guitar very well. And, my fastball peaked at about 70 mph, so those two careers quickly became hob-bies for me. My reality was that I still had to pass algebra. I discov-ered the media business in high school and found my calling. I told the students it was OK if they changed their mind about their career, which was more reason for each of them to pursue a solid, edu-cational foundation that will serve them well for anything. I reassured the students who have no idea what they will be doing in 10 years that was OK, too. I urged them to build an educational foundation so that when they do find their passion, they will have the skills to give themselves a fighting chance to go after it. In the end, what they told me was a whole lot more interesting than what I told them. The eighth-grad-ers at LCMS inspired me. Their clear ideas about the dedication needed to accomplish their career path — not to mention their energy and enthusiasm — restored my faith in that age group as a whole. The future looks bright, and students coming from the public schools in Columbia County are going to play a key role in how that future is positively shaped. Students, enjoy your summer break! LCMS eighth-graders aspire to be great D octors constantly remind us that too much sunshine isn’t good for our health. Here’s a news flash: Too little sunshine — call it sunshine deprivation syndrome — can cause problems, too. Just ask Tom Terrell. Mr. Terrell was, until last week, chairman of the Walton County Planning Commission. He abruptly gave up the top job amid criticism over a meeting gone awry and an apparent attempt to evade Florida’s open-government, or sunshine, law. Here’s what happened. When an April 29 Planning Commission meeting got out of hand, Mr. Terrell reportedly invited board members into a back room for a private talk. Three of the six planning commis-sioners were in attendance. Two reportedly followed Terrell into the back room. The third was Suzanne Harris, an open-government activ-ist, who immediately cried foul. Under the law, planning commissioners aren’t supposed to discuss public business in private. County Attorney Mark Davis said later that he acted swiftly. “I rushed back there,” he said. “They didn’t have time to have any conversation. They told me the only thing that happened was the chairman yelled at them.” Mr. Terrell himself maintained the sunshine law wasn’t violated. If it wasn’t, it was only by a hair’s breadth. The county attorney inter-vened just in time. Still, Ms. Harris wouldn’t let it go. She brought up the issue at last Tuesday’s County Commission meeting and said, “Any chairman who calls a board into a back room for a conversation needs to resign.” Which is what Mr. Terrell did, two days later. The reason given: his wife’s poor health. What’s ironic about all this is that, except for Mr. Terrell losing his cool and trying to duck the sun-shine law, everybody in this story did the right thing. The county attorney was right to cut the illegal meeting short. Ms. Harris was right to raise a fuss about Mr. Terrell’s behavior. And, finally, Mr. Terrell was right to step down as chairman. Let’s hope the Planning Commission’s next leader will be more respectful of the law, of public decorum and of citizens’ right to know what their government is up to.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 1, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 current board isn’t sure where the money went. Touchton said when she joined the board in February, the financ es were murky. The other four members all joined the board recently as well, she said. All they have is lots of boxes filled with papers and receipts. Each board member has been taking boxes home to sort through. “We just don’t have answers,” Touchton said. But she is hoping to have answers in about three months -that’s how long she expects it to take them to sort through every thing they have. Right now, the board isn’t even sure exactly how much money was in the endowment to begin with, Touchton said. Board chairwoman Teresa Weber, who joined the board about two months ago, thinks it was about $2.7 million. Touchton doesn’t know if NFAR had a financial adviser when it began, and she has little information on past spending. Original board chairman and former Director of Operations Jerry Garrett, who guided NFAR from its inception in November 2010 to April 11 when he was fired, told the Lake City Reporter that equip ment for the medical center and rescue parts of the facility orig inally cost somewhere between $250,000 $1 million. That was the best estimate he or anyone else could provide. The facility has had high turn over among board members, enployees and volunteers since it opened. That’s one reason the finances are in such disarray, Touchton said. Bookkeeping records were not transferred when employees left, she said. And some financial records that should exist, simply don’t. “From the time employee A leaves and employee B takes over, that’s a black hole,” Touchton said. Now the board is trying to get back on track. Touchton said the facility, though operating only two of its four buildings, costs about $30,000-$35,000 a month to run. That includes payroll, food and supplies for the rescued animals, and utilities, she said. However, it’s not clear nearly that much money is coming in. The medical center is open Monday-Thursday and grosses about $1,000 a day, or $20,000 a month, Touchton said. Erin Clary, the NFAR office manager who does the day-to-day bookkeeping, failed to pro vide figures on the breakdown of costs between the medical and adoptions side despite repeat ed requests from the Lake City Reporter. The Reporter also asked for payroll costs, but she didn’t provide those numbers either. An ambitious beginningAnthea Duron gave almost $3 million in 2010 to start an animal shelter because she “wanted peo ple to get involved in the rescuing of animals,” according to NFAR’s website. She saw helping animals as her reason for living, the web site says. NFAR, a no-kill shelter, was founded not as a place for the public to bring strays but for ani mals that are about to be eutha nized at other rescues. The ani mals would then be rehabilitated and adopted out. The idea was to give them a second chance at life. Pam Taylor, director of adop tions and rescue at NFAR from its inception to September 2012, said Duron wanted to end suf fering and leave a legacy similar to that of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Another part of NFAR’s orig inal mission was to provide low-cost spay and neuter services for the public. NFAR didn’t plan on providing full veterinary services. However, Garrett wanted a medical center that would pro vide low-cost vet services to ani mals at NFAR and to the public, he said. Duron, who was involved in construction before she died in 2011, endorsed the idea. But the medical center cost a lot more than expected, Garrett said, driving total construction costs to about $1 million.‘Too big and fancy’Colleagues and former employ ees say the chief reason for the facility’s current financial prob lems is that it was overbuilt. Terry Marques, execu tive director of the Lake City/Columbia County Humane Society, said he met with Garrett and another member of the board in March 2011 while NFAR was being built. Marques called Garrett a tal ented builder. But he also said he encouraged Garrett to con sult a shelter architect who could advise him on how to best build an animal rescue. He doesn’t think Garrett ever did so. Debra Ludwig, adoptions vol unteer coordinator from NFAR’s start to April 2013, said Garrett built a giant rescue with no real plan. “They just tried to do it too big and fancy without establishing a reputation first or really knowing how to run a rescue,” she said. Marques, Ludwig and Taylor agreed Garrett’s intentions were honorable. He wanted to do what was right for the animals and help them find good homes, they said. “He really truly does have a good heart. He just didn’t have experience and wouldn’t take advice from the people who did have experience,” Taylor said. “The idea of what he wanted was never wrong.” Garrett said he knows he’s not the best at the business side of things. “I hired people that I thought knew what they were gonna do and knew how to do it,” he said. “I was mostly a construction per son. I didn’t have all the details on how to run things, but that’s the reason we hired those people with backgrounds to do those things.” Garrett was fired by the board of directors on April 11. He said he was told he was terminated because he “‘wasn’t following the direction of the board.’” “They were trying to tell me how to do it and run it, and that wasn’t their function,” he said. Garrett, who says he was paid $48,000 a year, said he only ever did what he thought was best. “[A]s a director, I was doing what I thought necessary to be done because I was out there working,” he said. Garrett, a building contractor by trade who had been Duron’s personal caretaker before she hired him to build and oversee the shelter, said he doesn’t regret adding a medical center to the plans. “It had a purpose,” he said. “It just got out of hand as the way it was handled through the person nel that handled it.” He said Duron liked the shel ter’s grand design. “She saw the drawings and was happy with everything we were doing,” he said. Garrett says employees at Duron’s nursing home told him he gave her an extra year of her life by giving her something to be involved in. He isn’t done with NFAR yet, he said. Garrett says he has hired a lawyer to help him get back pay, vacation pay and money he lent NFAR from his savings – a little more than $30,000, he claims. The only response he’s gotten from NFAR is that they’re out of money and can’t pay, he said. “I don’t want anything extra out of it,” he said. “I’m not lookin’ for that. All I want is what I put into it to get back out of it.”DownsizingNorth Florida Animal Rescue consists of four buildings on 108 acres of pasture off County Road 137 in Wellborn. NFAR owns the land. The original intent was to have one building as a medical center, one for the adoptions and rescue part, another to house kennels, and one as a quarantine building. The rescue is only using two of its four buildings now and has laid off numerous workers in the past three months to preserve the little money it has left. “It wasn’t in a direction where it could function a year down the road,” Touchton said. By closing the adoptions and rescue and quarantine buildings, Clary said NFAR saves about $500 a month on electricity. Instead, the medical center building now houses adoption facilities and quarantined animals as well. Animals are put in quar antine their first 10 days at NFAR, Clary said. The kennel building remains open as well. Clary said the res cue currently has 17 dogs, 11 cats and two donkeys. NFAR isn’t currently accepting animals from humane societies and other rescues, she said. Marques, executive director of the Lake City/Columbia County Humane Society, said NFAR got most of its animals from his orga nization but hasn’t taken any in at least six months. Progress is being made on one front, though. Clary said a few months back, 80 percent or more of the animals being adopted were returned. Now, almost none of the animals being adopted are returned, she said. That’s likely due to better screening of those wishing to adopt, Clary said. Weber said the board is trying to get NFAR financially stable, so it can begin rescuing animals again soon. Weber said when she joined the board, there was no business plan in place. The new board is working to create one, she said. “The board’s goal is to have a viable adoption center where we’re taking in animals. Rescue and rehabilitate,” Weber said. “I want to make it a happy situation for everyone.” A new director of operations will be hired once the board has the finances under control, Touchton said. Right now, the board is working together to fill the role of director of operations, she said.An uncertain futureBut hard times are still ahead for NFAR. Touchton said the board of directors is preparing to dip into the rescue’s remaining $100,000 to pay expenses, including an upcoming insurance premium. The money will also be used to catch up on bills and hopeful ly keep the facility open longer hours, she said. Right now, the adoptions side is open 9 a.m. 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, and the medical side is open just four days a week. NFAR has also been generat ing some money through fund raisers, Touchton said. Future fundraising ideas the board is toying with include a yard sale and starting a food bank with donated food for lower-income people to buy at a discounted price, Touchton said. Clary said NFAR is thinking about holding a July 4 fundraiser. NFARContinued From 1A SARAH LOFTUS/ Lake City ReporterThis building, originally built to house North Florida Animal Re scue’s adoptions and rescue facility, ihas been closed in an effort to save m oney. Instead, adoptions and rescue is being done from the medical center building. NFAR is only using two of its four buildings right now. A separate building designed to house animals when they first arrive at NFAR during their quarantine period has been closed as well. By SARAH Breah Nelson is only 12 years old, but when she heard R. L. Lewis, of the Florida group, “The Highwaymen,” would be painting at Gateway Art Gallery’s grand opening, she said she had to be there. Breah wasn’t the only young artist at the opening watching Lewis paint. Her friend, Ashyle Witworth, 11, came to see him, too. Both girls are finishing 6th grade at Lake City Middle School and want to be artists. Ashyle said her grand mother has a lot of Lewis’ paintings in her house. That’s where her interest in his paintings comes from, she said. Lewis paints a lot of coastal birds and trees, according to the Florida Highwaymen Paintings website. He said he just paints what’s in the area. At the grand opening Saturday, he gave the girls some tips as he painted a pine tree. “You work the composi tion as a whole,” he said. Breah said she learned not to worry about making mistakes. “Throw colors down. You learn lessons. You don’t make mistakes,” he told them. Breah and Ashyle were two of about 40 guests to show up at the grand open ing in the first half hour, Jeanne Van Arsdall, the gal lery president, said. The grand opening from 10 a.m.5:30 p.m. marked Gateway Art Gallery’s first day in its new location downtown. The gallery has been open since April 2013 but relocated to a bigger space this year to accommodate all of the artists who want to hang their work there. With the larger building, the gallery will also be able to offer more classes for the public as well. The gallery was given a grant to help it relocate, Van Arsdall said. “We’re very thankful to the city of Lake City for help ing us with our grant,” she said. “We’re hoping to bring downtown back to life.” Not long after the gallery opened, Van Arsdall said they expected upwards of 250 people to attend throughout the day. On Friday night, they held a preview for all of the volunteers who worked to get the gallery ready. It went well and about 50 peo ple came, Van Arsdall said. On Thursday, Van Arsdall and gallery volunteers were rushing to get the gallery ready for the opening. Artwork hadn’t been hung, paint was drying, and the mural above the door was still being painted. Saturday, the walls were covered with vibrant pieces of art ranging from inlaid wood work by Del Porter to featured artist John Rice’s life-like portraits that make you question wheth er you’re looking at a paint ing or a photo. All the artwork on dis play was for sale. Some pieces cost more than $500. Others cost under $100. And in the gift shop, you can buy a bookmark or notecards for under $10. As Lou Witt walked around the gallery, she paused to admire Rice’s work. “It’s life-like to me,” she said. “The captured expres sions in those faces.” Her favorite painting of his is one titled “Old Portrait” that looks like it’s of people from the 19th-century. The painting is of a woman wearing a 19th-century style dull blue dress with a smaller man in bronze-colored suit sitting beside her with one foot resting on a stool. Porter’s work, while dif ferent from Rice’s, attract ed a lot of people as well. On display was Porter’s inlaid woodwork and paint ings done through a tech nique called “marbling.” He said he got into inlaid woodwork because he liked 18th century furni ture. Thirty years ago, he found people who did inlaid wood projects and started doing it. “I learned by doing,” he said. One piece, “The Good Ole Summertime Inlaid Wood,” which sells for $650, took him more than 50 hours, he said. “No two are alike,” Porter said. “You couldn’t make two alike if you want ed to.” His paintings were done by “marbling.” To do that, you drip paint on a thin gelatin and then pull combs and rakes through it, Porter said. That leaves you with an abstract-look ing painting with thin, wavy lines of color. Anne Graves, who was at the opening with her 8-year-old great-granddaughter, Clara Robinson, was in awe of Porter’s work. “I’ve got to talk to him,” she said. Clara enjoyed seeing the artwork as well. “You never know what they’re gonna paint,” she said. Graves said she loved all of the art so much. She could never choose a favor ite piece. “The patience people have is amazing,” she said. Graves said she knows quite a few of the artists, so it was cool to see their work hanging in a gallery. “I like all of it. It’s just wonderful,” she said. “I never knew how many tal ented people there were all in our county.” Gallery artist Del Porter poses with his inlaid wood pieces. The piece second from the bottom took him more than 50 hours and is on sale at the gallery for $650. Porter will also be teaching a class at the gallery.

one thing it would be to stay together. Lifes not always easy, but they can always feed off each other, he said. Roy Maggart, who was waterboy for the Fort White Indians football team this year, agreed. I mean, I was the waterboy, he said. But I became a part of that team just as if I was a teammate. Maggard was the only student to receive a standing ovation from his entire class at the senior awards ceremony. He was given an award for exceptional service to the athletic department. Maggard said his favorite high school memory was when the Indians won districts, and he is most excited to leave behind school food. It came so fast, said Caleb Bundy, a Fort White graduate. Its just here all of a sudden and I cant believe it. Bundy said his favorite memory of high school was the senior picnic at Blue Springs just a few weeks ago. It was just nice to be with everybody, he said. Thats kind of where it hit me that it was the end. Bundy said of everything, he will miss his best friend Kellen Snider the most. Snider was the mid dle linebacker for the Fort White Indians and committed to the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks in July. I have to leave pretty soon, Snider said. Im excited for college life, but itll be weird to leave. Valedictorian Leslie Ammerman gave an address during the ceremony and said that while the future seems scary to some, it is exciting for all. Ammerman also delivered a quote by author J.K Rowling: It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not lived at all -in which case, you fail by default. Fort White High School has given us the tools to be successful, she said. The people here have been instrumental. We cannot be afraid of failure. Ammerman will be attending the University of Florida in the fall, along with many of her classmates. The future holds an array of opportunity for the 2014 graduates of of Fort White. Some are planning to start college in the fall, some are on scholarships for sports, some are joining the military and others plan to join the workforce in the coming weeks. Ammerman encour aged her classmates to remember one thing as they continue on to their individual great unknowns: One, set goals. Two, never let fears stop you. Three, have fun. Not all of us will stay in Fort White. Some of us might not even stay in this country, Ammerman said. But we will always be the Fort White class of 2014.

Working as a teacher, as a principal, and as the countys supervisor of elementary education, she served the Columbia County School System for many years. She was also a charter member of the local chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa, a national sorority made up of past or present educators. So when Smith passed away, it was natural for her ADK sisters to want to do something in her memory which would express Smiths love for education and for the students she had served. With the assistance of a donor who has requested anonymity, ADK came up with an ideal memorial for Smith. For over 20 years, the donor has funded a two-night stay at the Elizabeth Pointe Bed and Breakfast on Amelia Island as a raffle prize for the sorority. Money raised by ticket sales for the raffle (won this year by Patricia Giddens) is then used to provide a $500 scholarship for a deserving senior girl at each of Columbia Countys two high schools. The seniors, who are selected during a meeting of ADKs local chapter, are evaluated based on educational goals (education is preferred), scholarship, and character, with consideration given to financial need as well. This years winner at Fort White High School is Savannah Hearn, who learned about the award at the FWHS Senior Honors and Awards ceremony on May 19. (Her Columbia High School counterpart, Rachel Johnson, was honored at CHS awards ceremony earlier in the month.) Hearn, who will graduate with honors, has already been accepted at Florida State University and plans to major in literature. A popular and active member of the senior class, Hearn has a ready smile and an obvious affection for her FWHS family of friends and teachers. I came from another place where I was bullied, she explains. When I first came to Fort White, I was apprehensive. I didnt know anyone and I was afraid it would start all over again. But almost from day one, the other students welcomed me and made me feel like I was one of them. Ive loved being an Indian and the high school experience I have had here. Although Hearn doesnt have hard and fast plans to go into education as of yet, one cant help but feel that Smith would have been very pleased with Hearn as ADKs choice for her memorial scholarship. Possessed of a bright and versatile mind, Hearn has interests ranging from literature (she is a voracious reader) to computer science to art to music. A member of the high school chorus, she had previously been a member of both the Warrior Marching Band and the FWHS Jazz Band. She also earned certifications in both Adobe Flash and Adobe Illustrator (computer programs designed for creating graphics, animations, and artwork) and applied those skills as a key member of the 2013-2014 yearbook staff. Hearns versatility is reflected in the other awards and honors presented to her on Senior Night. The recipient of a Gold Seal Vocational Scholars award under the Bright Futures Scholarship program, Hearns earned senior academic awards for English literature and composition and for her work with the yearbook. In addition, she received the U. S. Army Reserves National Scholar Athlete Award, the U. S. Marine Corps Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence, and a scholarship from the Seminole Booster Club. She was also awarded a Florida Gateway College Top 20% Scholarship, meaning that if she chooses to go to FGC rather than FSU she has a scholarship available to her. Hearns father, Tim Hearn, was present for the ceremony along with Hearns stepmother and grandmother and was beaming at its conclusion. We couldnt be prouder of her, he said. Its been a great evening and a great ending to her high school career. Those who know Hearn can also be sure that it marks the beginning of still better things to come.

Lake City Reporter SPORTS Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, June 1, 2014 Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports 1BSPORTS Top teams of 2014 By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High and Fort White High each produced three district championship teams in the 2013-14 school year. Coming off a state championship last year, ColumbiaÂ’s softball team repeated as district champi-ons. The Lady Tigers spent most of the season ranked No. 1 in the Class 6A state softball poll.They made it to the top spot in the overall poll for Florida and were recognized in a couple of national publications. Columbia won its opening playoff game and a rematch with district runner-up Oakleaf High in the second round before falling in the regional finals to Creekside High and cap-ping a 28-2 season. For coach Jimmy Williams, now in his ninth year, it was a fourth consec-utive playoff run, the fourth district title and fifth overall playoff appearance. Fort White won its first district championship in football and basketball, and added a district title in base-ball. The district titles in the three traditional sports was only the second time for a Columbia County school since the football playoffs began 50 years ago. It was the sixth playoff appearance for coach Demetric Jackson in his seven years as head coach of the Indians, and fourth in a row. The district championship had to go through Madison County High, which Fort White had never before beaten, and long-time rival Taylor County High. The championship allowed Fort White to host its first football playoff game, but the Indians fell to East Gadsden High and finished the season 7-2. Fort WhiteÂ’s basketball program was knocking at the district door with a runner-up finish in 2013 that earned the Indians their first trip to the hoop playoffs. This time coach Isiah PhillipsÂ’ team sealed the deal with a decision over Santa Fe High in the dis-trict tournament final. The basketball Indians also got to host their first playoff games and they dispatched Trinity Catholic High in the opening round. Fort White then had to face Santa Fe for the fifth time and the Raiders finally won. The Indians finished 23-3 in PhillipsÂ’ seventh year. Fort WhiteÂ’s baseball district championship may have been the biggest sur-prise. The Indians had to replace seven starters and were dependent on first-year head coach Rick Julius to put the pieces together. Fort White finished the regular season 11-11 and was seeded in the middle of the pack for the district tournament. No matter, as the Indians made a three-game run to bring home the first district title since 2006 and third overall. Fort White drew Trinity Catholic in the open-ing round of the playoffs and were defeated by the Celtics, who went on to win state. ColumbiaÂ’s golf teams were both looking at droughts as long the teams at Fort White. That ended when both golf teams defended home turf and doubled up on dis-trict championships. It was the first district title for the boys since 1999 when current head coach Steve Smithy was an assis-tant. Smithy moved up to head coach in 2001. The Tigers set an 18-hole scor-ing record during the sea-son and placed third at region, missing state by one place. Coach Todd CarterÂ’s Lady Tigers last won a dis-trict title in 2001. Columbia hosted region and placed fourth. Carter is entering his Columbia softball repeat leads list of district champs. FILEColumbia HighÂ’s softball team was the top-ranked team in all classifications during the 2014 season. The Lady Tig ers repeated as district champions. TEAMS continued on 3B

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 1, 2014 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-04214BSports utdoors 360 Ready, set, snapperT he state water opening of red snapper season began last weekend, but there weren’t any local anglers taking advantage of the improved weather. Since most of our red snapper occupy deeper water 30 or more miles offshore, they are under the federal regulations, meaning red snapper season really doesn’t begin until today. For anglers on our coast this means once the ludicrous “season” starts, so you only have nine days — if Mother Nature allows — to catch the most populous offshore fish on our coast. This year the red snapper seem to be holding in depths around 80 feet, and you’ll find them on ledges, rock piles, springs, wrecks and live bottom. “They will generally appear on your bottom machine as single marks or schools holding 10-20 feet above the structure,” Chris Charles said. “I like to get the bite going with frozen sardines or strip baits, once the fish get fired up drop some larger live baits down to target the big sow snapper.” For anglers in the Florida Panhandle, it’s a much different story. Upon hearing the news of a longer statewide season, they were excited to say the least. “I was extremely happy when they lengthened the season,” stated Pensacola Capt. Chris Williams of Fish Happens Charters. “In the dog days of summer we’ve only got a few hours to fish in the morning for redfish and trout before it gets hot. Then it’s time to fish for red snapper.” Now here is the crazy part, which is still hard to believe. They catch red snapper in Pensacola Bay! Not offshore of Pensacola Bay, or on the outside of the bay, inside the actual bay. “We’ve got a lot of small wrecks in the bay between 30 and 50 feet of water, and almost all of them hold red snapper,” Williams explained. “A wreck might be the size of a Volkswagen Bug, and it could hold a 10-pound red snapper 100 yards from shore. “Almost every time we fish structure in the bay, the first bait down catches a red snapper. It’s a great challenge using the same tackle we do for trout and redfish, and the clients find it’s a blast.” Williams credits a lot of the red snapper bay fishery to the removal of gillnets, allowing the red snapper population to grow inside the bay. “When I was younger we couldn’t target them like this. Now there are literally millions of snapper in the bay. People catch them from the shore or jetty at times.” As well as the shores and jetty, anglers in the Panhandle are able to access big red snapper a few miles offshore, including artificial reefs in 25 feet of water. This has opened up a new style of fishing, that anglers like Louis Anderson takes advantage of. Anderson launches his kayak from the beach, and can catch red snapper within shouting distance of the shore. “Our kayak fishing red snapper grounds are anywhere from a quarter-mile to five miles offshore. We fish both wrecks and natural bottom and find the same thing year round: a lot of snapper,” Anderson proclaimed. “We’ve had to come up with tactics to avoid the red snapper if we want to catch grouper. Some nearly 40-inch red snapper have been caught from kayaks.” This incredible fishery is one North Florida anglers have been able to enjoy while fishing state waters. In recent years, red snapper have become more abundant off our coast, and anglers are catching more and more while they seem to fish shallower and shallower. Could a state water red snapper fishery be possible in the near future for the Big Bend? Doubtful. I’m of the belief that more gag grouper have moved shallower, and as the result, red snapper populations have boomed in shared waters offshore, but we just don’t have enough depth of water inside the state water line. So, what do you fish for after these nine days with seemingly every single fish being over regulated? With the waters approaching 80 degrees, the bait has arrived, and with the bait comes the pelagics. Kingfish are currently scattered throughout our offshore waters from 45 feet and deeper. Cobia have arrived and can be found anywhere from the flats to the offshore wrecks, reefs and ledges. I recently received a report with 26 cobia caught in one day — with photos. Have a rod rigged with a pitch bait ready to deploy, and there’s a chance you’ll be able to capitalize on a curious cobia. Red grouper have been on the move, but look for the red grouper to be holding on any live, or flat hard bottom, from 30 feet and out. Memorial Day weekend Charles found plenty of red grouper in the 10-pound range holding in 35-45 feet. In the same spots as the red snapper are mangrove snapper. The mangroves will be spawning with the full moon in June and will be found in large schools. You can literally chum mangroves right up to the back of the boat, catch them with light spinning gear, then sit back and enjoy their delicious fillets.Q Rob Chapman IV is a tournament winning angler and outdoorsman from Lake City.

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JUNE 1-7, 20144CBIZ Zuckerbergs gift $120M to CA schoolsBy BARBARA ORTUTAYAP Technology WriterMENLO PARK, Calif. — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are donating $120 million to public schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. The gift, which the couple discussed in an exclusive interview with the Associated Press, will be spread over the next five years. It is the biggest allocation to date of the $1.1 billion in Facebook stock the couple pledged last year to the nonprofit Silicon Valley Community Foundation. “Education is incredibly expensive and this is a drop in the bucket. What we are trying to do is catalyze change by explor-ing and promoting the development of new interventions and new models,” Chan said in an interview Thursday at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California, headquarters. The first $5 million of the $120 million will go to the San Francisco, Ravenswood and Redwood City school districts and will focus on principal training, classroom technology and helping students transition from the 8th to the 9th grade. The cou-ple and their foundation, called Startup: Education, determined the issues of most urgent need based on discussions with school administrators and local leaders. Chan, a pediatrician, has so far shunned the spotlight and this was her first signifi-cant step into the public view. The two met while studying at Harvard and married in their Palo Alto backyard on May 19, 2012 — the day after Facebook’s stock began publicly trading in a rocky initial public offering that now seems a distant memory. In 2010, they joined Giving Pledge, an effort led by Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett to get the country’s richest people to donate most of their wealth. “I’m really focused on connecting the world. That’s my main thing, and you’re primarily focused on children,” said Zuckerberg, turning to Chan. “And we’re able to do some of this work together, which is neat...There are interesting over-laps.” Chan, 29, and Zuckerberg, 30, have made philanthropy a central theme of their life together. The two made the largest charitable gift on record for 2013. That $1.1 billion donation was on top of another $500 million the couple gave a year ear-lier to the Silicon Valley foundation, which helps donors allocate their gifts. “I just think that philanthropy is a fancy way to say that you care about others and that you want to serve others. And that’s been a part of me for as long as I can remember,” said Chan, fresh from a pedi-atrics residency shift at the University of California, San Francisco medical center, where she works primarily with under-served, immigrant families. “It’s really important to me that we use this oppor-tunity to continue to give back and create even more change to affect other people’s lives.” Last year, Zuckerberg was No. 21 on the Forbes list of the world’s richest people, right behind Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and ahead of well-known billionaires such as activist investor Carl Icahn and philan-thropist George Soros. He owns Facebook stock worth over $27 billion. In 2013, as the median yearly pay for U.S. CEOs crossed the $10 million mark amid a wid-ening income gap, Zuckerberg took a symbolic annual salary of $1. Though it’s been long in the works, the latest gift comes at a time when crit-ics are still questioning what became of Zuckerberg’s $100 million donation to Newark, New Jersey’s public school system. Four years ago, he announced the donation flanked by then-mayor Cory Booker and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. A recent New Yorker article criti-cizes the donation and the chain of events it set in motion. While well-intentioned, the money has so far failed to fix the city’s ailing school system. The process lacked meaningful community input and much of the money has been spent on high-paid contractors and consultants. Four years later, the money is nearly gone and a lot of people are angry. The story’s most poignant quote is from Vivian Cox Fraser, president of the Urban League of Essex County, who says “Everybody’s getting paid, but Raheem still can’t read.” Zuckerberg said the Newark experience is “a big influence on our thinking” with the Bay Area donation. Taking the long view, he’s quick to point out that the results in New Jersey are too early to measure. “The schools and programs that the folks put in place, only now are they ramp-ing up and students are starting to go through them. So you won’t know what the outcomes are until like 5, 7, 10 years from now,” he said. “That said, I think there are some things that are going generally bet-ter than we’d expected and some things that we’ve definitely taken as lessons.” One of the positive outcomes Zuckerberg points to: Newark’s teacher contracts, which, among other things, provide for performance-based pay bonuses for the district’s best teachers. He says the con-tracts are “better than anything that had been negotiated reward teach-ers who were the top performing teachers and hold teachers accountable who were not performing well.” Zuckerberg admits that he and local leaders could have done a better job engaging the community and soliciting ideas about how to spend the money. “I think one of the things that we took away from this is that we wanted to do our next set of work in a place where we can engage more directly with the community and a place that we care about a lot. The Bay Area just fit that well,” Zuckerberg said. The couple’s broader philanthropic goals center on children, education and health, though Zuckerberg is also active in immigration reform. Last year, he and other tech leaders formed, a political group aimed at changing immigration policy, boosting education and encouraging investment in scientific research. Through Facebook, he’s also spearheading, which aims to connect the more than 70 percent of the world’s 7 billion people who are not yet online. Connecting the world and children: That’s the stuff of dinner conversations in the Zuckerberg-Chan household. A child of Chinese immigrants who arrived in the U.S. on a refugee boat, Chan recalled an early memory that shaped who she is. It was the time her mother left to give birth to her younger sister and she was left with her grandparents. “I remember thinking when my mom was absent that it’s my turn to step up and care for my grandmother and my grand-father, and I’ve carried that with me ever since,” Chan recalled. She was two and a half at the time. Zuckerberg, who turned 30 earlier this month, said he and Chan are inspired by Bill and Melinda Gates and others who believe philanthropy “isn’t just something where you can wake up one day and decide to give away a bunch of money and do it effectively. Like anything else, you need practice.” To help prepare for their charitable work in education, Zuckerberg and Chan decided they needed hands-on experience. Chan has taught 4th and 5th grade science at a local private school and Zuckerberg has run an after-school program on entre-preneurship. “We talked about the education work that we wanted to do and she made this point to me that I wasn’t going be one of those people who (try to help by giving) money to places but had never taught any-thing myself,” Zuckerberg said. He didn’t think he’d have time to teach while running Facebook, but Chan set it all up. He says, “it actually ended up being awesome.” He still meets with the stu-dents regularly. All the talk of children leads to talk of kids of their own. “Well one day...but right now.” Chan said. Zuckerberg cut in, “That’s a yes,” to laughter all around. “Yes, but, we are a little preoccupied with other people’s children right now,” added Chan. Sorghum seeing success as Southern foods get hotBy MICHELE KAYALAssociated PressWhen chef Josh Feathers was growing up in Tennessee, his grandmother always had a jar of sorghum syrup in the cup-board. But he never gave much thought to it, or its significance to Southern culture. That didn’t happen until he’d grown up, moved away, then returned home to work at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. “My mentor, while we were creating desserts he said, ‘This is one of the main ingredients you need to look at,’” recalls Feathers, now corporate chef at Blackberry Farm. “This is a truly Southern heritage ingredi-ent we want to highlight.” Today, much of the country — even the South itself — is experiencing a similar delayed appreciation for sorghum. Sorghum syrup — or “sorghum molasses” as it’s sometimes called — has long been a staple of certain Southern cupboards. Pressed from the tough, grassy stalks of the sweet sorghum plant, then boiled down, it was seen as the province of grandmothers, a stodgy, household ingredient no one paid much mind. No more. Sorghum syrup and even sorghum grain are being thrust into the limelight by a new generation of chefs in the South and beyond who appreciate its complexities and its provenance. “Sorghum wasn’t considered a noble ingredient 10 years ago,” says Edward Lee, chef of two Louisville, Kentucky, restaurants and author of the cookbook “Smoke and Pickles.” ‘’The first thing I get is this very rustic nuttiness, this umami nuttiness, then the grassiness. And then the sweetness unfolds around that. It’s a unique flavor. And it adds a lot of depth to what you’re cook-ing, more so than honey.” Lee is not alone. He uses sorghum as a glaze for foie gras and highlights its distinct flavor in sorghum-and-grits ice cream. Feathers calls it “an all-purpose item” that can be drizzled over biscuits, shines up breakfast sau-sage and enlivens vinaigrettes. Vivian Howard, chef and co-owner of The Chef and the Farmer in Kinston, North Carolina, has deployed sorghum in candied yams. Washington, D.C., chef and restaurateur Jeff Tunks uses sorghum on his “low-and-slow” roast duck. And in Philadelphia, chef Jeremy McMillan of Talula’s Daily combines it with black gar-lic to glaze carrots. Demand for sorghum syrup has doubled during the last five years, says James Baier, execu-tive secretary of the National Sweet Sorghum Producers and Processors Association, rising so fast that some of his 300 mem-bers have begun running out before the new season starts. Demand is being driven by the public’s search for alterna-tive sweeteners, Baier says, and also by the light shined on sor-ghum by chefs, restaurants, even cocktail mixologists. Distillers have begun producing a rumlike product from sorghum, Baier says, and others using it to make whiskey, beer and cocktail bit-ters. Soy sauce producers have also shown interest, he says. Sorghum grain also is ambling to center stage on many chefs’ plates. Harvested from a short, stout version of the sorghum plant, the tiny grain has been used as food in Africa for thousands of years, but has been known in the United States mainly as biofuel or animal feed. Today, the grain is being milled into flour and marketed to the glu-ten-free and whole-grain markets, and is being used by chefs in soups, stews and salads. Only 2 percent of production currently goes to food, says Tim Lust, chief execu-tive officer of the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, which markets the grain, but that figure is grow-ing by 25 percent a year. Cookbook author Martha Rose Shulman has compared sorghum grain to Israeli couscous, and recommends it as a base for a black-bean stew as well as for a salad with cucumber, avocado and cherry tomato. At the Clifton Inn in Charlottesville, Virginia, chef Tucker Yoder combines the grain and the syrup in a quinoa and sorghum pudding. New York chef Marc Forgione has offered sorghum as a side to items such as arctic char. “The closest possible thing you can compare it to is a real heirloom farro,” says Forgione, who is working with Lust’s group to cook a three-course sorghum lunch at a June trade show. “It tastes like the ancient grain that it is. It’s got a great bite to it. It’s very earthy. When we do it risot-to style — I cook mine al dente anyway — it has a nice chew to it, a full texture.” So is sorghum the next quinoa? Forgione has one word: Sriracha. “If someone had told us 10 years ago that this condiment you can’t even pronounce was going to be the number one selling condi-ment, you wouldn’t have believed it,” he says. “You never know.” Elon Musk unveils new spacecraft to ferry astronaut s By RAQUEL MARIA DILLONAssociated PressHAWTHORNE, Calif. — A company that has flown unmanned capsules to the Space Station unveiled a spacecraft designed to ferry up to seven astronauts to low-Earth orbit that SpaceX founder Elon Musk says will lower the cost of going to space. The futuristic, cone-headed craft dubbed Dragon V2 featured landing legs that pop out and a propulsion system designed to land almost anywhere “with the accuracy of a helicopter,” Musk said Thursday at the Southern California rocket builder’s headquarters near Los Angeles International Airport. The technology would enable rapid reloading and reusability of the space-craft, he said. He noted that in the past, many rockets and space craft return to Earth in a fireball, render-ing them unusable. “You can just reload, propel it and fly again,” Musk said. “This is extremely important for revolutioniz-ing access to space because as long as we continue to throw away rockets and space crafts, we will never truly have access to space. It’ll always be incredibly expensive.” “If an aircraft is thrown away with each flight, nobody will be able to fly or very few (can),” he said. “The same is true with rockets and spacecraft.” The capsule also features a bright, sleek interior with swing-up computer screens at the control station, a two-level seating system to accommodate up to seven astronauts and large win-dows for them to marvel at Earth’s curvature. The cone-shaped cap can open to allow for the manned craft to dock at the Space Station on its own. The spacecraft also has more powerful engines, better heat shields, the landing legs and backup parachutes to ensure a soft landing. In a NASA briefing with reporters last year, Musk said Dragon V2 would look futuristic like an “alien spaceship” and promised “it’s going to be cool.” Since the shuttle fleet retired in 2011, NASA has depended on Russian rock-ets to transport astronauts to orbit and back, paying nearly $71 million per seat. The space agency has said it wants U.S. companies to fill the void by 2017 and has doled out seed money to spur innovation. SpaceX — short for Space Exploration Technologies Corp. — has made four cargo runs to the giant orbiting outpost some 200 miles above Earth. Just last month, its Dragon capsule splashed into the Pacific, returning nearly 2 tons of science experiments and old equipment. Companies competing for the right to ferry sta-tion astronauts need to design a spacecraft that can seat a crew of four or more and be equipped with life support systems and an escape hatch in case of emergency. SpaceX has said it’s designing a seven-seat spacecraft. SpaceX and longtime NASA contractor Boeing Co. are “more or less neck and neck” in the competi-tion, but there’s a long way to go before astro-nauts can rocket out of the atmosphere on private spacecraft, said John Logsdon, professor emeri-tus of political science and international affairs at George Washington University. Logsdon said progress by private companies is slower than anticipated mainly because Congress has not fully funded NASA’s budget request for the effort. He said it’s important for the U.S. to wean its reliance on Russia given the political tension over the annexation of Crimea. “It’s essential to have our own capability to transport people to space,” he said. “This is an important step in that direction.” Florida firm, TMJ Properties, buys former Atlantic Club casino By WAYNE PARRYAssociated PressATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A Florida com-pany bought the former Atlantic Club Casino Hotel on Thursday, and plans to operate it as a non-gambling facility. TJM Properties paid an undisclosed sum for the casino and its 800-room hotel, which shut down in January. It is the second acquisition this year of a former Atlantic City casino that the company plans to run as a non-gambling facility. In February, TJM bought the 500-room hotel por-tion of the former Claridge Hotel Casino, which was part of the Bally’s Atlantic City casino, for $12.5 mil-lion. Company spokeswoman Sherry Amos said TJM sees value in Atlantic City’s non-gambling tourism mar-ket. “TJM is attracted to the Atlantic City market, and they believe that non-casino amenities have great value in the future of Atlantic City,” she said. The company does not have any firm plans for the former Atlantic Club prop-erty, but does not plan to run it as a casino. Amos said TJM plans to finish developing the restaurants and other attrac-tions at the Claridge before turning its full attention to the Atlantic Club property. The company has not yet picked out a name for the property, and has no time frame in place for opening it.


LIFE Sunday, June 1, 2014 Section D Lake City Reporter Story ideas?Contact Editor Robert M emorial Day original ly emerged in 1868 as Decoration Day — a day to honor war dead by decorating their graves with flowers. The last Monday in May has become a day to remem ber those who have given their lives for our country through military service. I thought it was fitting to share the history of Memorial Day as it was just last month. I also wanted to share my recent visit to Washington DC earlier this month. It was my third trip to visit the nation’s capital and I’ve toured the city in many ways over the years with each trip. But this last time, we actually walked through each of the memorials, beginning with Lincoln. This memorial is so grand that it takes your breath away. To see Honest Abe sitting above you and to think of the impact he had on shaping our country was impressive and humbling. Then we walked over to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. I don’t remember seeing it up close before on any of my visits. There were so many names on the wall; over 58,000 as of 2010. Their service to our country impressed me, but what also impressed me was the number of decorations along the wall. I saw American flags placed with flowers and letters. School-age children who’ve taken field trips wrote letters to servicemen and women thanking them and left them at the memorial. Some went so far as to honor specific veterans from their home states — apparent planning had been done and plaques were made with their names on them and placed below their names. The thought and care with which this was done was a great example of their gratitude and the level of education to teach these young students about the sacrifices made was exemplary. I was impressed and touched all at the same time. We walked a little farther down through the National Mall to the World War II Memorial. This memo rial is much grander in scale but did not have as big of an impact on me. It honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S., and the more than 400,000 who died; which are honored by the field of stars. Also different about this memorial, TRAVEL TALES Sandy KishtonMemorials in Washington MEMORIAL continued on 4D I have been a librarian for over 40 years in six states around the United States. I cannot tell you how many times I have been approached by a library patron who has said, “this is a stupid question” or “I hate to bother you with a stupid question” or some version of the aforementioned. I am here to tell you there are no stupid questions! Librarians answer questions or help people find the answers to their questions – that is our job. You are not bothering us when you ask for help, helping you is what we do. If something is important enough to you to ask for help, it is not stupid. Libraries can be intimidating and sometimes it takes a little bit of courage for people to walk up to one of our public service desks and ask for help finding information. The variety of questions I have answered over the past four decades is astounding. I divide answering questions into two parts – pre-Internet and post-Internet – because how information is found can be vastly different in those two eras. Also, the types of questions asked have changed since the Internet. One exam ple is poetry/poets. Before the Internet I was probably asked several times a week to find a poem and oftentimes I had neither the correct title nor the poet to work with. It was challenging because we only had reference books such as Granger’s Index to Poetry and sometimes it took hours to track down the library patron’s poem. Now it is much easier to Google the question and find the answer much faster, but truthfully the hunt isn’t as satisfying somehow. I know that everyone is in a hurry now and wants immediate gratification, but the “aha moment” when I finally found the answer to a question was downright exhila rating. The Internet has certainly made our lives easier when answering reference questions. We often get asked for phone numbers in other cities and we can search the Internet and usually have an answer momen tarily. I remember working in libraries where we had huge collections of phone books from around the United States. The space those hundreds of vol umes took up was overwhelm ing. Reference librarians are detectives and we thrive on finding the right answer to our patrons’ questions. It was drummed into us in our first Master’s Degree reference course that we never give an answer without the documen tation on where we found the answer. Even if we are sure we know the answer, we still look it up just to be sure. Remember, however, that when you ask your question on an Internet search engine, there is no one making sure you receive the correct and most up-to-date information. When I was teach ing students at several univer sity libraries how to effectively search the Internet, I used to say that anyone could put up a web page, even a dog. If you come to the Library and want to ask staff a question, please do not say “I am sorry I have a stupid question.” There are no stupid questions! There are no stupid questions — please ask Debbie Paulson386-758-1018 Q Debbie Paulson is the director of the Columbia County Public Library. T he arrival of June usually brings with it plenty of rain and humid, warm weather. Many plants grow like crazy with all this sun and mois ture, but some plant diseases thrive in these conditions, also. The key to keeping diseases at bay in lawngrasses during the rainy season involves the use of proper cultural practices and frequent obser vation. The cultural practices used to maintain your lawn include how you water, mow and fertil ize. Keeping the plants healthy helps them outgrow many things that may otherwise be harmful. Read the University of Florida’s Turfgrass Disease Management at for practices that will keep your Florida lawn in great shape. Observation is another important factor in staying ahead of problems that may appear during the rainy season. Some of the diseases that may cause brown spots this time of the year are Cercospora leaf spot, gray leaf spot, Pythium root rot and take-all root rot. Observing brown spots, how ever, doesn’t always mean the grass is “sick.” Brown spots can also be caused by things like pet urine, fuel leaks and scalping (mowing too short). Cercospora leaf spot and gray leaf spot cause spotting on the leaves and some tip browning. Although they look similar and both are common on St. Augustinegrass, diagnosing the disease correctly is important because the control methods are very different. Cercospora leaf spot begins as narrow, dark brown spots that enlarge to irreg ular spots with tan centers and brown to purple margins. The disease is managed with an appli cation of a quick release nitrogen and potassium fertilizer blend at the rate of one half pound nitro gen per 1000 square feet. Nitrogen, especially in quick release forms, should definitely be avoided when gray leaf spot is present. Compacted soil and the use of atrazine herbicide increase the susceptibility of St. Augustinegrass to the dis ease. Gray leaf spot symptoms begin with small pinhead-sized dark spots that enlarge to circular or oblong tan spots with dark brown margins. So many spots can occur on each leaf that the affected area can appear browned and thin. Only use slow release fertilizer as needed, avoid herbicides, and reduce foot traffic compaction. Pythium root rot and take-all root rot will both cause symp toms of yellowing and thinning patches. The pathogens that cause both diseases are natural ly present on all warm-season turfgrass roots. Excessive rainfall, over irrigation, poor drainage and stressed plants can encourage the activity and spread of these pathogens. Pythium root rot seldom kills the plants but the roots appear GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@u.eduKeep lawn grass healthy during the rainy season Send your pictures How do you make your own ‘black gold’ for the garden, from the garden?

GRASS continued on 4D ‘At the Movies’ in Fort White By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterI n the modern world, more and more jobs require at least basic computer skills – and the definition of “basic” is changing rapidly. Ten years ago, most workers could get by if they could use a word processor, surf the Web for information, and use e-mail. Now “basic” skills may include at least the fundamentals of website design, coding, and being able to develop multimedia presentations. Computer technology and skills are also changing the world of education, driving a more interactive learning style in which teachers become facilitators and coaches rather than present ers and lecturers. This new mode of education was on full display Thursday at Fort White Elementary School, where teachers and stu dents presented the results of their work with Project SCOPE to an audience of parents and relatives at the school’s “At the Movies” showcase. Principal Wanda Conner welcomed visitors in the school cafeteria, where the school provided popcorn and soft drinks as refresh ments for the young film makers’ “opening night,” and provided a brief intro duction to Project SCOPE (Stopping the Cycle of Poverty through Education). This program, which is coordinated by volunteer Lynn Blanton, is in its sec ond year of helping teachers and students become more comfortable with modern technology and incorporate computer-based resources into learning. As Conner explained, the students in Project SCOPE created 15to 30-minute movies using 60 iPads (which were shared accord ing to a rotating schedule among the 14 classrooms of kindergarten through fifth-grade students involved). For each movie’s topic, the students developed essential questions – questions that help students make sense of the concept they are working on as they answer the questions – and created movies presenting the ideas and concepts they explored. Following the introduc tion, visitors – including Supt. Terry Huddleston and District 5 County Commissioner Scarlet Frisina – were invited to visit the children’s class rooms, where teachers and their students proudly dis played their classes’ produc tions on topics ranging from the science behind roller coasters to the use of figu rative language. The mov ies showed the children’s developing skills in creating audiovisual presentations from video clips, stills, sound recordings, text, and graphics. Many classrooms also displayed working mod els, dioramas, murals, and other means of exploring the assigned topic. While all the projects were a credit to the stu dents and teachers involved in their production, those teachers who had worked with Project SCOPE last year were quick to admit that the previous experience had been invaluable. “Using the tablets has taken some getting used to,” said fourth-grade teacher Carol Barnett, whose class explored the importance of Florida’s state and national parks. “But it really has opened up a lot of possibilities for teaching.” Conner agreed. “This is the future,” she said. “We need to change the way we engage students, because things are not going to change and go back to the way they were.” The main obstacle in the path of change is money. While the school system receives some money through the state Students become directors at FWES MOVIES continued on 4DAVALYN HUNTER/ Special to the ReporterFourth-grade student Jacovya Major explains a computer program used to explore the science behind roller coasters to Superintendent of Schools Terry Huddleston at FWES.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 1, 2014 3D DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Mike,” and I are young new lyweds and adjusting to our new life quite well. However, while we both come from deeply religious families, we are both nonbelievers, which has caused some strife within the family. Mike has several nieces and nephews (ages 4 to 9) who have asked us repeatedly why we don’t go to church with them, since the whole family attends together. Their mother has made it clear that they do not want the children knowing there is another option besides Christianity, and I understand, since their faith is so important to them. But I don’t want to lie to the kids or ignore their ques tions. Is there a tactful way to answer their questions without stepping on toes? — NEVER ON SUNDAY DEAR NEVER: You could respond by saying, “Your uncle and I have other plans.” And if the kids ask what they are, tell them what you plan to do that day. If they ask why you don’t come to church like they do, tell them that because they are children they need to learn about their religion. When they are adults, they can choose to go -or not. DEAR ABBY: I am a male victim of domestic violence. I was traumatized for five years at the hands of my ex. I suffered through name-calling, physical and sexual abuse. Once, when she was upset, she hit me with her car and dragged me across our parking lot. I tried several times to leave only to find that in my commu nity there was no help for men in situations like mine. There are women’s shelters every where, but none that cater to men and their children. I ended up having to return home, and things just got worse. I finally left with the shirt on my back and a few belongings. Because I couldn’t find help, I slept on the street. I am now a survivor and attending school to become a social worker. I have been trying to raise awareness of men as abuse victims, but it’s an uphill battle. Why? — EMPOWERED IN CENTRAL WISCONSIN DEAR EMPOWERED: It’s probably because of outdated gender stereotypes and lack of awareness by the law enforce ment in your community that women as well as men can be psychopaths. When your wife ran you down in the parking lot, she should have wound up behind bars, assuming the police were called. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Let everyone around you do his or her own thing. Keep your dis tance and refrain from meddling even if your intentions are honor able. Criticism is likely to come your way if you aren’t diplomatic. Take time out and avoid disputes. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Form an alliance with someone who thinks like you. Take part in community events and you will form a good relationship with someone who offers something beneficial in return. Make home improvements. Love and romance are highlighted. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make plans for the upcoming week. Lots of changes are taking place around you, and you want to be prepared to take advantage of whatever comes your way. Be on guard when it comes to purchas es. You can’t buy love. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do your best to hide your emotions or disappointment. Being in a vulnerable position will not make it easy to bring about the chang es necessary to make your life better. Don’t get angry or make rash decisions. Focus inward on self-improvement. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone who is not as friendly or popular as you might criticize you for your outgoing, fun-loving nature. Do your best not to retal iate. Be patient and take the high road. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Mingling and finding out what others think will add to your com fort and help you develop some of the ideas you have been mulling around. Make a romantic move and you will improve your per sonal relationship with someone special. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll face opposition if you are too vocal about your plans. Work quietly on your own and avoid getting into no-win situations that will stand between you and your goals. If change is required, make it hap pen quickly and don’t look back. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll gain respect and gather followers if you share your plans for the future. Broaden your hori zons by taking part in activities or events that will introduce you to people from different back grounds. Romance will lead to per sonal happiness. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t get caught unprepared. Take care of a personal, financial or legal matter that could hurt your reputation or standard of living. Cut costs at home and be prepared to use your personal skills to fix any problems that may arise. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Develop your ideas. Talk to experts and find out exactly where you stand regarding a situation that involves outside influences. An interesting job opportunity should be considered even if it points you in an unusual direction. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Improve your health, your position and your finances. Offer help to someone older or more experi enced and you will discover he or she has a wealth of information to share with you. Sign up for a program that instills a healthier lifestyle. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get out and stay active. The more information you gather, the easi er it will be to determine how to best use your money and assets in order to advance. Don’t pay to help someone else when you should be promoting your own interests. +++++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Nonbelievers walk fine line with their religious family members Q Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O.

These sculptures depict the spir it and commitment of all who supported the war effort from home. They were beautifully crafted. With all of this being said, honor bestowed at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is like no other. Watching the changing of the guards here at Arlington National Cemetery was amazing and emotional all wrapped into one experience. The service and tradition has been ongoing since the tomb was erected in 1921. The guards stand watch 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Their continued dedication to their fallen comrades is commend able. Experiencing the changing of the guards and walking along the National Mall visiting these various memorials were in my thoughts this past Memorial Day. I also remembered my family members who have served. It’s an inspir ing holiday and a great opportunity to say Thank You to those who gave their lives, to those who have served before and to those serving now… so thank you.

COURTESYCarder and Koski to wed in AntiguaLarry and Sheri Carder Gunter announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their son George Frank “Beau” Carder IV to Sara Marie Koski, both of Dallas. Carder was a 1998 honor graduate of Columbia High School and a dual enrollment student at Florida Gateway College while in high school. He earned academi c scholarships to the University of Florida and graduated with a B.S. in Communications, where he was an officer with the Sigma Chi Fraternity. He is currently a Vice President with Wells Fargo Bank in Dallas. Koski, born in Houston and raised outside of Ft. Worth, has always called Texas home. She attended Tarleton St. Universi ty and played college basketball before making her career in ban k management. She currently serves as Manager of Independent Bank and has a 9-year old daughter named Madelyn. The two will wed in St. John’s, Antigua, on the beach overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Antigua is a one of the Leeward Islands. Friends of the couple are invited to join them. The wedding is set for August 8. weak with few root hairs. Take-all root rot will turn the roots black and plants may die, developing bare patches in the lawn. Once the disease symp toms appear in the lawn, fungicides are not as effec tive as using proper cultural practices involving recom mended watering, mowing and fertilizing. In lawn areas that have had root rots in the past, you can use fungicides as a preven tative measure to keep the pathogens from taking over again. Just keep in mind that healthy plants, like healthy people, can stand up to many pests and dis eases that come their way. Plants, like people, don’t become healthy and strong from being spoon-fed with excess (food) fertilizer.

D o you have musical talent? Do you wish you did? I’ll admit it, I’m not the most musically-inclined indi vidual. I can strum a few chords here and there, perform “When the Saints Go Marching In” on a piano, and play a mean kazoo, but other than that, my musical skills are nil. And I’m not alone – there’s a very small percentage of people who seem to have the gift of music. The rest of us just wish we did. For those of us who aren’t musi cally inclined, we tend to admire musicians whose abilities seem effortless. Music is often thought of as a gift, an ability you’re either born with or not. That’s not necessarily the case, of course. Just because you didn’t start tickling the ivories at the age of four doesn’t mean it’s some thing that can’t be learned. Sure, it may take practice – it does; ask any musician, even those with the natural abilities – but even the most “tone-deaf” individuals have an inkling of talent just waiting to be released. And at Florida Gateway College, prospective students can find that talent in the college’s Music course offerings. For many years, the college’s band and music courses were under the leadership of Harry Wuest. Upon his passing, FGC later hired Paul Keck, a percus sionist from Gainesville, to lead the college band program. Keck has a history of teaching students of all ages – and skill levels – and currently assists with the University of Florida Gators foot ball drum line in addition to his duties at FGC. Keck works with students of all abilities. Some have never picked up an instrument before; others have been playing for years but have holes in their skill sets. That’s fine, he says – every student presents a different chal lenge. In addition to his General Music Appreciation online course, Keck also offers private lessons on wind, percussion, piano, and classical instruments. A musical virtuoso, Keck says he’s no expert in all of the fields – remember, his special ty is percussion – but he’s talented enough with each instrument that he can offer the beginning and intermediate instruction that stu dents need. Those well-versed in music often look toward showcasing their talents in the Concert Band and Steel Band courses. These classes allow students to work with their fellow classmates in an ensemble, rehearsing and performing public pieces with wind, percussion, and steel instru ments. Though some students may be more versatile in their playing, that doesn’t mean they’ve learned all they need to know – musicians are lifelong learners and are always looking to improve their abilities. And because of that, music students at FGC span the spec trum – some are beginners, some are experts. But it’s getting the beginners out of their shells that proves difficult at times, Keck says. One of the great things about the college is that it’s all about new opportunities and new chal lenges. That’s one of the most important lessons to take here – change is possible. We can change who we are, and talent can be cultivated. Anyone can become a musician if you put your mind – and heart – into it. You may not become the best musician, but the good news is that you don’t have to be a Springsteen or Hendrix to enjoy making music. It’s all about practice and taking that first step! It’s never too late to learn something new, and it’s not too late to begin looking at the Music courses offered this Fall at Florida Gateway College. More information can be obtained by e-mailing Keck at or by calling (386) 752-1822. And if you’re interested in set ting up a guided tour of campus, please call (386) 754-4246. FGC’s music department strikes chord with prospective students Troy RobertsPublic Information CoordinatorFlorida Gateway College Q Troy Roberts is the public information coordinator at Florida Gateway College. He can be reached at for technology, most of that is designated for upgrading and maintaining necessary infra structure such as switches, cables, and wiring. Some of the iPads currently being used were purchased through use of discretionary funds under the control of the principal, but many were provided through the generosity of area business es, nonprofits, and individual donors. This year, the Parent Teacher Organization purchased a new computer cart for iPads, adding to the two carts the school already had, but it will take about $12,000 to purchase 30 more iPads to fill the cart and make it possible for all FWES students and teachers to partici pate in Project SCOPE. Conner is determined, though. “Fort White Elementary School is developing a reputation as being on the cutting edge of education,” she said. “I’m going to do everything possible to keep this school there, because every student here deserves the best education possible. All any one who wants to help needs to do is contact me, and together, we can make it happen.” MOVIESContinued From 1D
