Betty Jefferson has been calling Hornes office on behalf of city voters in recent weeks, Horne said, and the calls are perfectly legal. She calls and gets us on the line for them, Horne said. The elections worker asks the voter his or her name, address and date of birth. If the answers match data on voter rolls, Florida statute requires an absentee ballot be mailed to that address. Horne did not accuse Jefferson of wrongdoing. Thats the law, she said. Jefferson and another Tax holiday this weekendBack to schoolAshton Hoy, like many Columbia County residents, plans to take advantage of the back-to-school tax-free weekend starting Friday. But unlike others who may just head out to see what they find, Hoy knows exactly what she wants and was out at OfficeMax on Wednesday scouting whats available. The 18-year-old leaves for college in a few weeks and is looking for accessories for her laptop a USB device, a new case and a surge protector. Hoy said she and her mom will also look for school supplies, clothes and the few things she still needs for her dorm room at Florida Southern College. She and her mom have shopped on tax-free weekend since she was a little girl. She even remembers hearing her mom talk about the holiday when it was a week long and not just a weekend. They usually even go to Georgia for its tax-free weekend, which starts Aug. 8, Hoy said. I always take advantage of tax-free weekend, she said. And she isnt the only one. According to a news release from Florida TaxWatch, a nonprofit, nonpartisan taxpayer research institute, Floridians will save almost $40 million in taxes as they shop from 12:01 a.m. Friday to midnight Sunday. School supply items that are less than $15 apiece will be tax-free. Clothing, footwear and certain accessories that are under $100 per item will be tax-free. Purses and backpacks are included in that. The first $750 of computers and certain computer-related accessories will be tax-exempt. Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of Florida TaxWatch, said the money Floridians will save is part of the states almost $500 million in tax cuts. They (tax holidays) are a great way to lower the tax burden and provide broad-based relief for hardworking Floridians, he said in a prepared statement.

According to information from City Hall, restaurants that have expressed interest in locating in Lake City are: Panera Bread Company, Panda Express Restaurant, Dairy Queen Grill & Chill, Dennys Dinner Restaurant and Dunkin Donuts. In addition to the restaurants, other businesses have inquired about moving to Lake City. The business growth includes expansion Eateries, more now looking to locate here.INSIDEWhy has Lake City become hot spot for potential businesses?EUGENE JEFFERSON: Despite indictment, Betty Jefferson has helped voters request absentee ballots. CAMPAIGN continued on 7A E. JeersonBy DARA KAMThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Florida pot dispensers could truck their product to patients, under a revised rule proposed by health regulators in advance of a workshop Friday about the states move to a limited type of medical marijuana. The latest plan also would loosen restrictions on who could own the dispensing organizations. Nurseries with only one-quarter ownership of pot distribution businesses would be eligible for licenses, according to the draft rule released late Tuesday by the state Department of Healths Office of Compassionate Use. Despite numerous complaints expressed by nursery owners, lobbyists and others at a rule-making workshop earlier this month, health officials arent backing away from a lottery-based system to choose the recipients of five licenses, a competition drawing operators and investors from around the world. The state has until Jan. 1 to come up with the regulations regarding a strain of marijuana, authorized by the Republican-dominated Legislature and approved by Gov. Rick Scott earlier this year, that purportedly does not get users high but can alleviate life-threatening seizures in children with Pot trucks may be on the move after new year Licensed nurseries could begin driving their product to patients, under new law.

JOSEPH Chiefs rookie Aaron Murray was tied up in meetings Monday night, at the same time millions of people were tuning into ABC to see whether his brother would be popping the question. No worries. Murray knew months ago that his brother, Josh Murray, would be chosen by The Bachelorette Andi Dorfman on this season of the reality dating show. In fact, the finale was taped the same week of the NFL draft, making it a memorable weekend in his household. Josh Murray played professional baseball for a while before returning to college. He ultimately joined the football team at Georgia, playing safety while his brother starred at quarterback. Asked whether his brother is still engaged, the younger Murray laughed: Yes, still engaged, he said Wednesday. Whats a group selfie? An usie NEW YORK What do you call a group selfie? An usie, of course! As in us. Pronounced uss-ee, rhymes with fussy. Usies are a growing trend that I think have far more social value than selfies, said Michal Ann Strahilevitz, a professor of marketing at Golden Gate University in San Francisco who studies consumer behavior. In contrast to one-person selfies, usies are more about the relationship, and less about you and your hair, she said. 7a 1p 7p 1a 6 a LAKE CITY ALMANA C SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T odays ultra-violet radiation risk for the a r ea on a scale f r om 0 to 10+.

The Tesla Supercharging Station is physically one of the smallest new business entries, but will potentially have a huge impact on the environment through the governments push for green energy.200 free stationsThe Tesla Supercharging Station that will be located in Lake City is part of the Tesla Companys push to add close to 200 free charging stations in the country for customers who purchase their vehicles. Its a docking station for Tesla automobiles, very nice electric cars, said Laura Reissener, City of Lake City planning technician. Bob Hathcox, City of Lake City director of growth management, said Tesla is putting the charging stations throughout the country and along Interstate 75. Theyre putting them here so the folks that buy the cars can actually stop, charge them up in about 30 minutes. While they are charging them up they can get a cup of coffee or some lunch, he said. Reissener said Tesla charging stations have been constructed along the East Coast and now the company is stepping out and heading west. A Tesla representative from Palo Alto, Calif., addressed the citys growth management officials about the concept months ago. The company originated in California and theyre a very fast growing company, Reissener said.Medical Center Construction on the Lake City Medical Center lab addition began a few weeks ago with an approved site plan.

Why the sudden spike in interest here?By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA number of businesses and eateries looking to increase their consumer bases are now considering Lake City for new locations. City Manager Wendell Johnson said he is uncertain why Lake City has suddenly appeared on so many peoples radar, but since January the city has experienced a notable spike in interest from companies hoping to locate in the area as well as redevelopment by local companies. I can only speculate that its an indicator that maybe the economy is actually beginning to improve, he said. Certainly I think land prices have probably become more competitive with the 4-5 year economic downturn that weve had. Its just amazing to me since the first of the year it seems that all the pockets of undeveloped land and some of the older properties are either under construction or improvement. Johnson said development costs alone for the projects were approaching the $2 million range. This year we only had a small, .16 percent increase in our gross taxable value in Lake City for 2015, just a few million dollars and I looked at Columbia County and they had a similar spike, but a little bit more than ours, he said. He said jobs will be one of the benefits from the development projects with the Lake City Medical Center expansion looking at bringing in close to 40 new positions, Discount Tire adding 20 jobs and he anticipated at least an additional 100 jobs in the area through the addition of new restaurants and businesses. Johnson said the Lake City Medical Center expansion project is a holdover project that was started under Jesse Quillen, for mer Columbia County Economic Development Department director. That expansion was Jesses project, he said. Thats one where he coordinated and negotiated all the activities leading to the expansion. When he left everything was done. It was just a matter of finalizing the agreement. No specific reason has been given why 2014 was the year so many businesses decided to look into developing their clientele in Lake City. Success breeds success, Johnson said. With the addition of three major franchise restaurants last year in Lake City (Chick-fil-A, Olive Garden and Longhorn Steak), it just gave that spike of confidence to some of these other developers who were thinking about Lake City to take a chance. Johnson also noted that over the last three years the city council has continued its suspension of impact fees and that could have also played a role in businesses attempting to locate in the area. I anticipate this as the beginning of things to come, Johnson said. In the last 4-5 years of the economic downturn there has really been a reluctance to take these risks and now were seeing those indicators, not just physical indicators here in town but also in the news. I hope this is a sign Lake City is beginning to grow. Its a great location with the two interstates... Im going to be very optimistic and very supportive of good managed growth and good quality businesses and hopefully our tax revenue base will continue to grow instead of declining.
W hen Hamas decided to initiate rocket attacks on Israel, it invited the furious reprisal that began earlier this month. Three times since 2006, Israel has responded to aerial assaults on its citizens with fierce counter-attacks, and each time the fighting has come to an inconclusive end that allows its enemies to replenish their arse-nals and start planning for the next round. For that reason, IsraelÂ’s Security Cabinet unanimously rejected a U.S. proposal for a cease-fire late last week, though Israel agreed to a 12-hour pause over the weekend. The images from the funerals of Israeli troops are heart-rending. The scenes of horror and destruc-tion in Gaza, gut-wrenching. No one could wish for the people of Gaza to endure prolonged misery. But it was Hamas that wished for the fighting. First, by attack-ing Israel, and then by rejecting an Egyptian cease-fire proposal because it wanted its own narrow demands addressed first. That included lifting border restrictions and the release of dozens of former prisoners Israel rearrested in a crackdown on the West Bank after the abduction and killing of three Israeli teenagers. Throughout the fighting, Hamas has used the civilian population of Gaza as hostages. That is one big reason the terrorist group has worn out its welcome there. It uses popu-lated areas to fire deadly rockets into Israel. U.N. officials have also said they twice found Hamas using abandoned schools to conceal doz-ens of rockets. The refusal to agree to a ceasefire more than one week ago, along with the discovery of an extensive network of tunnels leading into Israel, triggered the Israeli ground assault and the determination of its government to achieve a two-fold aim: Destroy the tunnels and degrade HamasÂ’ arsenal to render it ineffective. Without that, Hamas would be exposed as dangerous and use-less. Its control of Gaza has only worsened the lives and prospects of Palestinians who live there. Israel must be allowed to crush the threat from Hamas, not just for a few months or a year (the last cease-fire took effect in November 2012), but for the foreseeable future. The right of self-defense is not negotiable. Marginalizing Hamas and reducing its support among Palestinians is another strategic imperative. As long as Hamas is seen as an effec-tive standard-bearer for Palestinian aspirations, it will draw grassroots support. ItÂ’s doing a pretty good job by itself of alienating Palestinians, especially those in Gaza who under-stood that provoking another round of fighting with Israel would invite disaster. But Israel can hasten the erosion of HamasÂ’ popular support by helping to improve the lives of Palestinians in the West Bank, where the Palestinian Authority, led by Mahmoud Abbas, has become an effective partner in keeping the peace. The ultimate challenge for Israel is to help provide a better life for Palestinians in the West Bank, giv-ing them a glimpse of a more-peace-ful future Â— including the return of Mr. AbbasÂ’ group to power in Gaza. That, of course, requires vic-tory over Hamas and an end to its destructive power.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com W e have recoiled in disgust over the past few months with every new report of abuses at Veterans Administration hospitals across the land. Incompetence is bad enough, but to find administrators cooking the books to hide long, potentially life-threatening delays in care, was a deep affront to every American. And now, with the revelation that separate appointment books were kept at the Lake City VA, the scandal has hit home. Frankly, our town deserves better.We have given freely of both blood and treasure whenever our nation has called. All we ask in return is that our sons and daughters who have served, and suf-fered for it, be treated with the dignity and respect that is their due. For a cadre of self-important bureaucrats to take it upon themselves to renege on this promise is as infuriating as it is incomprehensible. Our nation has broken its word to those who trusted it most. At press time Wednesday it appeared Congress might actually strike a deal on Veterans Administration reforms before breaking at weekÂ’s end for an extended recess. We will watch carefully to see if they follow through and do all in their power to begin the work of making this right. There will surely be a steep price if they donÂ’t, come Election Day and beyond.Outrage at the VA Q Associated Press Not a four-letter word but every bit as bad TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1498, during his third voyage to the Western Hemisphere, Christopher Columbus arrived at the island of Trinidad. In 1777, the Marquis de Lafayette, a 19-year-old French nobleman, was made a major-general in the American Continental Army. In 1875, the 17th president of the United States, Andrew Johnson, died in Carter Station, Tenn., at a ge 66. In 1953, Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, known as Â“Mr. Republican,Â” died in New York at age 63. In 1964, the American space probe Â“Ranger SevenÂ” transmitted pictures of the moonÂ’s surface. O bamacare appears to be headed for still another Supreme Court visit, and one reason is clear. It suffers from comprehensiveness, a legislative affliction viewed by many as remedy and fervently sought whether the subject is health care, financial institutions, immigration or you name it. This is no small thing, this comprehensiveness. It fills hearts with unrealized expectations, launches thousand of pages worth of bad laws and can easily diminish the national future. How might this phenomenon be more fully described? LetÂ’s call it the presumptuous goal of being hurriedly exhaustive. We see it when our leaders try to do just about everything they think needs being done on a major mat-ter through a solitary measure, aiming, in one fell swoop, to solve every related puzzle from A to Z. They generally let little get in the way, often not the Constitution and certainly not common sense advis-ing that no group of politicians and experts has knowledge enough to pull this off, just vanity enough to try. Then, after the passing of legislation few members of Congress had time or inclination to read and that may have been barely understand-able anyway, we get the massive, suppressive, regulatory addenda of the bureaucrats. Before too much longer, there are boulders hurtling at you, your neighbor, everyone in sight Â— the inescapable avalanche of unintended consequences. Obamacare is guilty of all the above and more. President Barack Obama admitted he was wrong in saying you could keep your insur-ance policy if you liked, but the additional truth is that this country wonÂ’t keep much of anything in the health care world as it was. WeÂ’ve already seen some of the hurt that can ensue along with some positives that could have been more simply achieved, and weÂ’ve seen confusion and court involvement. Now comes another court ruling that could ultimately mean no one will get an insurance subsidy in the 34 states that set up no exchanges them-selves, simply relying on the federal government to do the job. ThereÂ’s been lots of righteous indignation about that ruling, but the careful analyses of some make a persuasive case that, in order to get the states to set up their own exchanges, the law does prevent their residents from receiving subsi-dies if they turn to federal exchang-es instead. Even if those analyses are right, some argue it would still be permissible for judges to junk this part of the law, which would be equivalent in principle to junk-ing Congress. We may see if the Supreme Court does or does not like the idea. In the meantime, the subsidies will stay in effect and we can ponder how comprehensiveness bred befuddlement enough that Congress may well have enacted clauses unaware they were even there, which hardly makes them nil. Now, for another legislative experiment demonstrating how dev-astating comprehensiveness can be, consider the 2,300-page, 2010 Dodd-Frank act re-regulating financial institutions in response to the 2008 financial crisis. It itself is a crisis, as Peter Wallison of the American Enterprise Institute makes clear in a Wall Street Journal piece. He says the act has lessened economic growth through an immensely fat-tened regulatory state beating up unproductively on the financial industry. It is so poorly written that bewildered, deadline-missing bureaucrats have only finished translating its verbiage into slightly more than half the required new rules, he shows. When we get the whole package, run for the woods. The next comprehensive travesty some have in mind is immigration reform. If done prudently, one lim-ited, well-considered, easily review-able step a time, reform could lead to a virtual end of illegal entry, economic blessings as we profit from more emphasis on attract-ing those most likely to thrive and less hardship all around. Done the Obama way, the Democratic way, the everything-at-once way some Republicans also endorse, we could risk far-reaching harm. How about quitting such nonsense?

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424When many peo ple think of the Library, they remember story times they used to attend at their local public library. When I was growing up, my family members were all big readers and we visited our charming Carnegie Library all the time. There were story times for pre schoolers, but not for older children. I donÂ’t recall ever seeing fliers for adult programs or my parents mentioning them. Public libraries today very much resemble community centers with programs for all ages and all sorts of meetings open to the public, in addition to circulating books, magazines, audio books, DVDs, and e-books. Our Youth Services staff not only provides story times and special programs at the Library, but they also provide outreach to twen ty-five licensed daycares with boxes of books and with story times. The boxes of books rotate among the daycares. The outreach services are necessary now because so many parents work and their children have to go to daycare. We donÂ’t want them to miss out on story times and books at the Library, so we take the Library to them. We also go to local fairs and other community events to talk about library services and sign people up with library cards. The Fort White Branch Library even has a Lego Club. The number of pro grams aimed at adults has increased significantly since 2008 when we start ed our Florida Author Series during the eventful year leading up to the LibraryÂ’s 50th anniversary on October 1, 2009. The Series continues and we have tried Skype a few times when the authors could not come to Lake City and we viewed the program online from their homes. Our adult pro grams have included not only Florida authors, but also interesting talks on Florida archeology, Florida cowboys, local and Florida history, as well as perfor mances by folk musicians. Katrina Evans, Assistant Library Director, books the adult programs and she is often asked how she finds out about them. Sometimes, the authors or performers contact her directly; sometimes, she is familiar with an author and visits his or her website to see if they do public programs; she has even been contacted by authorÂ’s publishers to let her know the author will be on a book tour and he would like to stop at our Library. We also like to showcase local authors and have had local author fairs in the past, as well as individual programs. At the Library, we wear many hats. We provide the traditional story times for children and a diverse col lection of library materials to check out and enjoy. We also provide educational, interesting, and fun pro grams for all ages. Tutors teach people how to read and improve their math skills; volunteers provide instruction on how to use a computer or the latest software; volunteers show people how to make crafts. Local artists teach aspir ing child artists how to paint or sculpt. We are so grateful to the Friends of the Library that funds all of our children and adult programs. How do you know whatÂ’s happening at the Library? Please go to our website at www.ccpl.sirsi.net and click on Library Events on the left or Kids on the right.

severe epilepsy. Under the new law, patients who suffer from severe muscle spasms or cancer would also be eligi ble to get cannabis that is low in euphoria-inducing tetrahy drocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD, if their doctors order it.Nurseries bombardedThe law restricts dispen sary applicants --who would grow, process and distribute the low-THC product, usually a paste or oil --to nurseries that have done business in Florida for at least 30 years and grow 400,000 plants or more. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has identified at least 55 nurseries that cur rently meet the criteria. Nursery owners have been bombarded by offers from investors and operators eager to cash in on the stateÂ’s newest regulated industry. Rumors are rampant about nurseries that are demanding millions from potential part ners or growers who are being offered money to stay on the sidelines. Many of those inter ested in Â“CharlotteÂ’s Web,Â” a low-THC strain named after a Colorado girl, are hoping to get started in the pot business now with an eye on a pro posed constitutional amend ment going before voters in November that would allow doctors to order Â“traditionalÂ” medical marijuana for certain patients. In the meantime, eligible nursery operators are pair ing up with lobbyists and lawyers as they wade into turf unfamiliar to even the most sophisticated regulato ry experts.Statewide transportationThe law allows one dis pensing organization in each of five regions around the state. It also allows the dis pensing organizations to have Â“an infrastructure rea sonably located to dispense low-THC cannabis to regis tered patients statewide or regionally as determined by the department.Â” At the rule-making work shop earlier this month, health officials heard that just five locations would be inade quate to meet patientsÂ’ needs. The new draft rule would allow dispensing organiza tions to deliver 30-day sup plies of the medical mari juana derivative directly to patients. Potential operators are divided on the transpor tation issue. Â“An infrastructure cannot be a truck. An infrastruc ture is a place,Â” said Louis Rotundo, a lobbyist who rep resents the Florida Medical Cannabis Association, a coa lition of growers, investors and others interested in the pot business. The proposed rule may also mean that dispensing organizations can transport their product statewide. Giving dispensers the abil ity to distribute statewide as the law permits is critical, said Ron Watson, a lobbyist who is consulting for a group of former pharmaceutical executives who want one of the five licenses. Â“A regional distribution system has no checks and balances and will punish the patient through cost and availability. A patient should be able to choose the best medicine regardless of where it is grown,Â” said Watson, who also represents the Florida Medical Cannabis Association.UF wonÂ’t participate University of Florida sci entists recently revealed the school would not participate in research --the law con tains $1 million for the uni versity to study the effect of low-THC, high-CBD marijua na on epileptic children --because it could lose millions of dollars in federal grants. Â“I equate it to the Â‘what came first the chicken or the eggÂ’ question. In Florida, we are trying to figure out what comes first ---the low-THC cannabis plant or the CharlotteÂ’s Web medicine?Â” Edwards said. Kerry Herndon, owner of KerryÂ’s Nursery in Apopka, blasted health officials for keeping the lottery provision in the proposed rule. Â“ItÂ’s a disaster for the patient population. YouÂ’re making medicine for sick children. So itÂ’s like any body at random within the pool and not the most quali fied? Really?Â” said Herndon, whose nursery is eligible for one of the licenses and who is interested in pursuing one. Health officials are doing the best they can to meet Â“a very aggressive timelineÂ” set by the Legislature, said Sen. Rob Bradley, one of the billÂ’s sponsors. Â“We have told them that they need to produce a rule by Jan. 1, 2015, and they need to come up with a system where by we can get this in the hands of the parents of the suffering children. I trust the depart ment to come up with a practi cal way to get CharlotteÂ’s Web in the hands of these suffering families,Â” Bradley, R-Fleming Island, said.Not by schools, churchesThe proposed rule also would restrict dispensaries from opening near schools, day-care centers, churches and public parks, which Rotundo said is too far-reaching. 1998, the back-to-school sales tax holiday has saved Florida taxpayers $407.6 million.Â” Many local stores are prepar ing to help shoppers save even more money this weekend with special sales. OfficeMax is offering 60 per cent off a Toshiba Satellite C55 laptop with Intel and 50 percent off Reebok backpacks, accord ing to an Office Depot/Max press release. Plus, more than 1,000 items the store sells will cost $5 or less, the news release says. Â“OfficeMax... stores are excit ed about the upcoming tax-free shopping weekend. Our stores are fully stocked for the entire back-to-school shopping season along with the upcoming week end tax-free specials,Â” Julianne Embry, Office Depot, Inc. pub lic relations senior manager, wrote in an email. Â“We look forward to the opportunity to pass along the savings on to our customers, whether they are shopping for back to school or their business.Â” Some J.C. Penney Co. sales are starting today. Thursday through Saturday, shoppers can save $10 off a $25 purchase with a coupon found online. The department store will also offer doorbuster sales Friday at 3 p.m. through Saturday at 1 p.m. to save shoppers addi tional money, and on Sunday, shoppers can use a coupon from the storeÂ’s website to save 20 percent with a J.C. Penney Co. card and 15 percent when using other forms of payment, Lake City J.C. Penney Co. store manager Gayle Cruse said. Some items are excluded from the coupons. Â“ItÂ’s always a good event,Â” she said. Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce exec utive director Dennille Decker said the tax-free weekend puts shoppers in the mood to buy. Â“It gives people who are kind of on the fence about making that purchase a little bit of an extra incentive to go ahead and buy it,Â” she said. Amanda Todd, who has a daughter starting kindergarten and a son entering fifth grade, said she saves enough money on tax-free weekend to make the lines and crowds worth it. SheÂ’s planning to start shop ping in Lake City on Friday for clothes, shoes and backpacks for her kids and then sheÂ’ll head to the Oaks Mall in Gainesville later in the day to finish her tax-free shopping. Cyndy Nobs, who was getting a head start to her shopping Wednesday at OfficeMax, said sheÂ’ll probably save about $50 this weekend as she shops for clothes at the Lake City Mall. Â“The savings are worth it Â‘cause I can spend more money on clothes (with them),Â” she said. But others say the hassle, the lines and the crowds arenÂ’t worth the savings. Jeanie Daniels, a Jasper res ident and Hamilton County school board member, said the savings once were worth it when her children were young. But now, just with grandchil dren to shop for, they arenÂ’t. She was shopping at J.C. Penney Co. at the Lake City Mall with her granddaughter Thursday morn ing to avoid having to shop this weekend. Â“I donÂ’t save enough for the aggravation,Â” she said. Â“IÂ’m not knockinÂ’ it. For some, itÂ’s great.

However, according to an investiga tive report by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, of the 377 votes Jefferson received, Â“236 to 255 of those ballots were absentee ballots that HorneÂ’s staff can attribute to [Betty] JeffersonÂ’s efforts.Â” Betty Jefferson faces 24 felony and two misdemeanor counts of vio lation of state election law and two counts of voter intimidation. Ivery faces six felony and two misde meanor counts of violation of state election law and two counts of voter intimidation. According to prosecutors, Betty Jefferson conspired to corruptly influence voting; obtained absentee ballots in violation of the law; and submitted false voter registration data. Court records show the original complainants in the case told author ities that Â“the Jefferson camp would have voters sign a blank absentee ballot, where they would fill out the rest, or sign forms already filled out and just needing a signature.Â” According to FDLE, Betty Jefferson Â“would call and check on absentee ballots to see if they had been sent to a particular voter. The [supervisor of elections] employee told Jefferson that the voter had to call. Jefferson would then have the voter on the telephone within seconds.Â” In a July 20 story in the Lake City Reporter, Eugene Jefferson said his wife was not assisting with his cam paign this time. On Wednesday, he claimed he had been misquoted. Â“I expect my wife to assist me to the extent any other wife would assist her husband,Â” he said. Â“She has not been convicted of anything.Â” The case is pending, and Betty Jefferson and Ivery are next sched uled to appear in court August 18. Early voting starts August 16 and the primary is August 26. POT TRUCKSContinued From 1A From staff reports LAFAYETTE COUNTYÂ—Six prison inmates suffered minor injuries Tuesday morning when the prison transport they were traveling in rear-ended another vehi cle in Lafayette County. Two correctional officers traveling with the inmates escaped injury, however, the driver of the vehicle they struck, James Edgar West, was also taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Prisoners injured in the crash were: Samantha Karnowski, 22; Matthew Shuman, 33; Kristopher Byrd, 28; Ricky Williams, 32; Randy Schaub, 32 and Ryan Herman, 24. The wreck occurred around 9:45 a.m. Tuesday in Lafayette County on U.S. Highway 27. According to Florida Highway Patrol reports, a white Ford E-350 prison transport driven by correctional officer Keith A. Sims, 46, of Melbourne, was traveling west on U.S. Highway 27 with correctional officer Richard Vasquez and six prisoners. The prison trans port was traveling behind a 1991 Isuzu pick up truck driven by West, 72, of High Springs. Reports said WestÂ’s pickup was stopped for traffic, westbound and attempting to make a left turn into the parking lot of the Lafayette County Farm Bureau office. Sims reportedly failed to stop in time caus ing the prison transport vehicle to collide with WestÂ’s pickup truck. After the collision WestÂ’s vehicle came to a controlled stop on the northern shoulder of the roadway and the prison transport was pushed to final rest on the roadwayÂ’s southern shoulder. No serious injuries were sustained in the crash. West was transported to Lake City Medical Center and the six inmates from the prison transport were taken to UF Health in Live Oak. Sims and Vasquez had no injuries and were not taken to the hospital for treat ment. Sims and Vasquez, along with officers from the Department of Corrections and the Suwannee and Lafayette County SheriffÂ’s office assisted with the transport and obser vation of the prisoners while they were being treated at the hospital. Sims was charged with careless driving, according to FHP. 6 prisoners injured in van crash CAMPAIGNContinued From 1A Senior sales consultant Robert Holloway helps Michelle Dicks look for supplies at OfficeMax.

Burns also has individ ual school records in the 200 Individual Medley, 100 Fr eestyle, 100 Breaststroke and 500 Freestyle. Lee has school records in the 50 Freestyle and 100 Bac kstroke. Talented swim team returns in 2014By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia HighÂ’s swim team begins conditioning on Monday. There will be a team meeting on Aug. 18 with fall practice starting the next day. Swimming is the one sport at Columbia High that has an official list of school records. Football has a partial list of records gathered by Morris Williams and Shayne Morgan. Track records have been compiled by flrunners.com (MileSplit) since the 1990s. Bill Barnett researched basketball records, but he has been gone since 2003. Soccer keeps track of year-by-year team records. Baseball has never both-ered. Records are not only recognition of excellence, but a way to look back at athletes of the past and reminisce. In the recent untimely death of Jared Allison, his family men-tioned that he swam for Columbia and may still have a record. Sure enough. Allison set the 100 Freestyle record that still stands in 2000. The oldest record on the swim team list is Jimbo HaleyÂ’s 500 Freestyle mark set in 1985. That was seven years before the owner of Olympic Health Chiropractic competed for the United States in the Modern Pentathlon at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. There is one other record from the last century in the boys 200 Medley Relay, and a couple of other marks that are more than a decade old. The complete list follows: 500 Freestyle Girls: Hannah Burns Â— 4:48.99 in 2013; Boys: Jimbo Haley Â— 4:57.30 in 1985; 200 Freestyle Girls: Hillary Leonard Â— 1:54.98 in 2007; Boys: Dennis Minshew Â— 1:51.73 in 2013; 100 Freestyle Girls: Hannah Burns Â— 52.78 in 2012; Boys: Jared Allison Â— 50.14 in 2000; 50 Freestyle Girls: Lindsay Lee Â— 24.34 in 2013; Boys: Matt Geisler 22.32 in 2002; 200 Individual Medley Girls: Hannah Burns Â— 2:00.82 in 2012; Boys: Matthew Leonard Â— 2:01.16 in 2006; 100 Butterfly Girls: Hillary Leonard Â— 57.59 in 2007; Boys: Dennis Minshew Â— 53.64 in 2013; 100 Backstroke Girls: Lindsay Lee Â— 57.18 in 2013; Boys: Matthew Leonard Â— 55.12 in 2006; 100 Breaststroke Girls: Hannah Burns Â— 1:04.12 in 2012; Boys: David Morse Â— 1:04.74 in 2011; 200 Medley Relay Girls: Lindsay Lee, Hannah Burns, Courtney Britt, Skyler Covert Â— 1:49.70 in 2013; Boys: Tony Richards, Matt Hollingsworth, J.L.

FootballÂ’s waiting game ends SundayBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWhile there is still nearly a month remaining before the beginning of the offi-cial football season for Columbia and Fort White high schools, fans of the pigskin can rejoice as foot-ball is on its way back. The Indians will hold a mandatory parent meeting prior to the beginning of fall practice. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. on Sunday at the Fort White High gymnasium. All parents of middle school, junior varsi-ty and varsity football play-ers are required to attend. Both teams will hit the practice field on Monday. ColumbiaÂ’s official start of the season will be at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 28 at Gainesville High. Fort White takes the field a day later. The Indians will host Hamilton County High at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 29. But on the state and national level, football will appear on our television screens much sooner. The National Football League will hold its annu-al Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday with Derrick Brooks, Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Michael Strahan, and Aeneas Williams taking the stage in Canton. A night later, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly will represent Buffalo as an hon-orary captain and partici-pate in the coin toss of the Hall of Fame game against the New York Giants. Kelly, inducted into the hall in 2002, in May com-pleted radiation and che-motherapy sessions to treat sinus cancer, which spread from his jaw. Â“I have always said that God willing, I will be back in Canton every summer,Â” Kelly said. Â“This year espe-cially, I am so thankful that I can be on hand to share in a great weekend that shines the spotlight on the Buffalo Bills. There isnÂ’t a person more deserving of joining the Hall of Fame than my teammate and friend Andre Reed. It is also a great honor for me to represent the Bills organization at the coin toss to kick off the season. The entire experience will bring back many great memories from 2002 when so many of the Bills family Â— fans, players, and staff Â— joined me in Canton.Â” Columbia, Fort White begin practice Monday.
By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Â— Hendrick Motorsports didnÂ’t look far for Dale Earnhardt Jr.Â’s next crew chief, choosing a candidate already quite familiar with the organization. Greg Ives, the race engineer for Jimmie JohnsonÂ’s record run of five consecu-tive championships, will return to Hendrick next season as crew chief for NASCARÂ’s most popular driver. Ives will replace Steve Letarte, who is step-ping down at the end of the year for an analyst job with NBC Sports. Â“Greg was our No. 1 choice,Â” team owner Rick Hendrick said Wednesday. Â“This is a talented guy who already has a terrific rap-port with Dale Jr. and is a fit with the organization.Â” Ives worked under Johnson crew chief Chad Knaus from 2006 through the 2012 season. He then moved to JR Motorsports for his first job as a crew chief, in the Nationwide Series with Regan Smith. He was moved to rookie Chase ElliottÂ’s pit box this year, and has five wins as a crew chief. Elliott is also the current Nationwide Series points leader. Even though Ives was no longer in the Hendrick shop every day, JR Motorsports is co-owned by Earnhardt and Hendrick and relies heavily on HMS resources. Â“I know what Greg is all about and really respect him,Â” Earnhardt said. Â“HeÂ’s a strong leader with a cool personality, and weÂ’re both competitors who want to win. It was important to find someone who would fit at Hendrick Motorsports and inside our shop, and he will for sure do that. Â“We got the best guy for the job, and I look forward to working with him next year.Â” Ives, from Bark River, Michigan, joined Hendrick Motorsports as a mechanic in 2004.

3BSPORTS Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-042 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014 3BAssociated PressMONTGOMERY, Ala. Â— The Southeastern Conference has become the most popular jumping-off point for underclassmen looking for a head start on NFL careers, creating more spots to fill around the league with preseason camps approaching. No league has had nearly as many players leaving early to pursue NFL careers over the past eight years, and LSU has had the most of any program two years running. Â“We do lead college football in three-and-outs,Â” Tigers coach Les Miles said. ItÂ’s not a distinction coaches particularly covet Â— except perhaps to juice the sales pitch to teenage recruits already dreaming of their first NFL paycheck. It also creates some potential headaches for those who have Â— some-times unexpectedly Â— more job openings leading into August, not that coaches around the country have much sympathy. LSU has lost 18 underclassmen to the draft over the past two years. Since the leagueÂ’s title run began in 2007, the SEC has had nearly as many early depar-tures drafted (109) as the next two leagues combined. The Pacific-12 (57) and Atlantic Coast Conference (54) rank second and third, according to research by STATs, Inc. The 49 first-round selections among underclass-men during that span tops the Pac-12, ACC and Big Ten combined (44). The exodus can affect the quality of play at certain positions even with a new wave of fourand five-star recruits coming in annually around the SEC, which had its seven-year run of produc-ing BCS champions halted by Florida State in January. Alabama had three junior cornerbacks picked in the first round from 2010-2013, and a position of strength became a weak link last sea-son with several young play-ers thrust into big roles. Â“I think we recruit a lot of good players in this league,Â” said Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban, who played 14 freshmen last season. Â“What it does for me, and what it does for our team, I guess is what I should say, is the players turn over more quickly so you play more players. Â“ItÂ’s not that those players arenÂ’t good players, but in some cases they might be playing a little bit before theyÂ’re ready to play.Â” Alabama will have fivestar freshmen Tony Brown and Marlon Humphrey vying for playing time at cornerback when camp starts. The SEC has had 60 underclassmen enter the draft the past two years, counting players who graduated but had eligibil-ity remaining. Not all have been hot commodities. The latest group had six juniors picked in the first round and nine go undrafted, nearly one-third of the 28 SEC players who declared for the draft. Former LSU and NFL defensive lineman Marcus Spears said the players leav-ing creates a big challenge in having enough depth to overcome injuries and other issues, and forces coaches like Miles to plan ahead in recruiting. Â“You have to be able to look out maybe a year or two years in advance and kind of start honing in on those guys that can come in and replace them and play right away,Â” said Spears, now an analyst for the SEC Network. Â“When you lose those guys, it is a huge void, especially those underclass-men that apply for the draft. Having guys in the stable is very important.Â” The good news for newcomers: There are plenty of opportunities for playing time, partly because of play-ers not sticking around for senior seasons. Here are a few:Q Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen is compet-ing to replace 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Q LSU tailback Leonard Fournette, considered the nationÂ’s top-rated prospect, should carve out a role for himself after Jeremy Hill and Alfred Blue both left with eligibility remaining. Q AlabamaÂ’s Cam Robinson is the apparent front-runner to replace left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio. Some prospects are weighing their career options long before they arrive on campus. Â“IÂ’ve had three (prospects), and these guys are like 16 years old, theyÂ’re saying, Â‘If I go out and donÂ’t make it, youÂ’re going to put me back on scholarship if I want to come back, right?Â’Â” Saban said. Â“IÂ’m saying this guy just got his driverÂ’s license and heÂ’s got this fig-ured out already. ... But still theyÂ’ve really minimized in some cases their chances of being successful, hav-ing a career as a football player.Â” SEC easiest route early draft entree FILEFloridaÂ’s Antonio Morrison takes down Tennessee quarter back Nathan Peterman who attempts to gain yards on a keeper while playing on Sep t. 21. No league has had nearly as many players leaving early to pursue NFL careers over the past eight years than the SEC. Dolphins take on new credo after bullyingBy ANDY KENTAssociated PressDAVIE Â— The Miami Dolphins, rocked by a bul-lying scandal last season, are now wearing T-shirts bearing a credo of together-ness that was coined by the players. One by one some of the members of the offense and defense removed their shoulder pads Wednesday and changed into the new gray shirt. On the back was a list of 10 sayings bordered by the words Â“I am a Miami DolphinÂ” that encompass their approach to the upcoming season. Among the sayings that bring to mind last yearÂ’s scandal involving former offensive linemen Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin is this one. Â“If I see something Â— I will say something Â— I commit to call it as it is.Â” Head coach Joe Philbin applauded the gesture made by his players. Â“I think the best way to do things is to give them some ownership and let them feel like IÂ’m not coming down from the mountaintop and saying this is a must and this is a mandate,Â” Philbin said. Â“I thought they did a good job. I thought they gave some consideration and some thought to it and I think itÂ’s good. Probably Â‘IÂ’m a professional,Â’ is one of them I like. But I think I like them all. TheyÂ’re all good, but that one sticks to me. ItÂ’s kind of all encompassing, entails a lot. Â‘Team first,Â’ too. Maybe I like team first better. IÂ’m trying to picture the T-shirt.Â” Considering that Philbin has come up with plenty of his own rules, he joked that some of the players think he has too many and that heÂ’s Â“a little stiff.Â” He had approached a group of vet-erans during the offseason to emphasize his desire for them to take ownership of the team. Defensive end Cameron Wake, a three-time Pro Bowler, had showed off a T-shirt last year in the locker room that he and other mem-bers of the defense designed specifically for defensive play-ers. That one was adorned with the words Â“Respect The Brotherhood.Â” Guy to be first punter inducted into HOFBy JOSH DUBOWAssociated PressOAKLAND, Calif. Â— Ray Guy built a Hall of Fame career of making other people wait. Those anxious seconds for punt returners awaiting his booming kicks were nothing compared to the more than two decades Guy had to endure before finally getting the call that he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The seemingly interminable wait will come to an end Saturday in Canton, Ohio, when Guy gets to put on the Hall of Fame blazer for the first time as he becomes the first true punter to get inducted into the exclusive club. As much as Guy wanted personally to be a Hall of Famer, he also wanted it for his position, which he believed got disrespected every time he was passed over for the honor. Â“That kind of bothered me because they were say-ing thatÂ’s not a positon, it doesnÂ’t take an athlete to do that, itÂ’s not important,Â” Guy said. Â“ThatÂ’s what really got under my skin. It wasnÂ’t so much whether I did or didnÂ’t. I wish some-body had. It was just know-ing that they didnÂ’t care. Â“ThatÂ’s what kind of frosted me a little bit.Â” Guy was a finalist seven times starting in 1992 without being voted in and didnÂ’t even make it that far countless others, leav-ing him to wonder if the call would ever come. He finally got in as a seniorÂ’s nominee this year, joining placekicker Jan Stenerud as the only kickers in the Hall. Guy is the perfect player to get the honor because he is credited with revolu-tionizing the position after being the only punter ever taken in the first round when Raiders owner Al Davis drafted him 23rd overall in 1973. His kicks went so high that one that hit the Superdome scoreboard 90 feet above the field in a Pro Bowl helped put Â“hang timeÂ” into the football ver-nacular. His ability to pin the opponent deep with either high kicks or well-positioned ones was a key part of the success for the great Raiders teams of the 1970s and 80s. Â“It was something that was given to me. I donÂ’t know how,Â” he said. Â“IÂ’m really blessed in that cat-egory. ItÂ’s something I really appreciate and I advanced it and I made it into something great.Â” GuyÂ’s statistics look somewhat pedestrian com-pared to todayÂ’s punters. His career average of 42.4 yards per kick ranks 61st all-time and his net aver-age of 32.2 yards (exclud-ing his first three seasons when the statistic wasnÂ’t kept by the NFL) isnÂ’t even in the top 100. Yet, he still is considered by many as the best to ever play the position and is widely respected in the fraternity of punters, including about 20 who plan to attend the induc-tion. Â“He should be first because he played his posi-tion in an outstanding man-ner in his era, and more important than that, he brought great notoriety to the position,Â” said Sean Landetta, who punted for 22 seasons in the NFL. Â“YouÂ’re talking about the Hall of Fame and the most famous punter is Ray Guy.Â” Guy also earned the respect of his teammates on the Raiders, who con-sidered him much more than a specialist and a key component on three Super Bowl champions with his ability to change field posi-tion every time he kicked the ball. Â“It should not have taken this long to recog-nize him,Â” former Raiders defensive back George Atkinson said. Â“He was quite a weapon for us. Not only could he get the ball up high with hang time, but he also had great placement.Â” Those are some of the reasons why Davis bucked conventional wisdom and took Guy out of Southern Mississippi in 1973. One of the sad byproducts of GuyÂ’s long wait to get into the Hall of Fame is that one his biggest backers, Davis, wonÂ’t be there to see it. The former Raiders owner died in 2011. Guy also said he will be emotional thinking of his deceased parents and his college coach, P.W. Underwood. With Davis not there, Guy has chosen his Hall of Fame coach, John Madden, to introduce him. Guy also said it is comfort-ing to know that DavisÂ’ wife Carol and son Mark will be in the audience, along with many of his for-mer teammates. Â“That will make it a little bit easier, but the leader wonÂ’t be there,Â” he said. Â“But he will be. All heÂ’s gonna say is, Â‘Just win, baby.Â’Â” Strahan goes from DE to TV to HOFBy BARRY WILNERAssociated PressMichael Strahan had one objective in mind when he came to the New York Giants as a second-round draft pick in 1993 out of Texas Southern. My goal when I first started was just to make a little money so I didnÂ’t have to move back to my parentsÂ’ house,Â” he says. Â“I didnÂ’t want to disappoint my parents. So that was my goal, to kind of just make my parents proud, make them happy, play as hard and just do the best I could do.Â” The best he could do was pretty good: Strahan will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night. Strahan was the leader of a defense that stunned the undefeated Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl. He holds the single-sea-son mark for sacks with 22 1-2 in 2001 Â— yeah, we know all about Brett FavreÂ’s Â“diveÂ” for the record-setting sack. He retired with 141 1-2 sacks, seven Pro Bowl appearanc-es and four All-Pro team selections. And while he was a game-changer on the field, he was making his mark elsewhere with his gregarious personal-ity, gap-toothed smile and willingness to step out of his comfort zone. He became a regular in com-mercials, most notably for Subway. Strahan easily moved from the field to the tele-vision studio after retire-ment, and now is co-host of the Â“Live! With Kelly and MichaelÂ” morning show. But heÂ’s going into the Canton shrine because of his on-field achievements in 15 seasons, all with the Giants. Playing for one team, joining former team-mates Harry Carson and Lawrence Taylor in the hall, means plenty to the 42-year-old Strahan. Â“Just so much history on the side of the Giants,Â” Strahan says, Â“and the fact that you can see we all spent our career all in one place, which just goes to show that itÂ’s a family.Â” Not that a spot in Canton was on StrahanÂ’s mind when he wore No. 92 for the Giants. Â“I think, when you once start thinking like that, youÂ’re setting yourself for failure,Â” he says. Â“So I just went out and played every year for 15 as hard as I could and just Â— at the end of it all, it took me years before I looked back on my career and said, Â‘Man, I did have a pretty good career.Â’ Other than that, I just look at myself as a football player who happens to play as hard as I could and ended up by going out on the right note on a team that got hot at the right time and won a Super Bowl, and one of the most memorable ones going against an undefeat-ed team.Â” Strahan had a sack in that game, the final one of his career. He became eligible for the hall in 2013 and was elected this year. Seeing his former teammate and mentor select-ed for the hall reminds current Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka of StrahanÂ’s refusal to come off the field. Strahan started 205 of his 216 career games, and was no situational player. Â“I remember him specifically saying, ThatÂ’s just a chance for somebody to take your spot,Â’ Â“ Kiwanuka says. Â“HeÂ’d say, Â‘IÂ’m never going to come off the field, theyÂ’re going to have to drag me off the field.Â’ You have to have that mental-ity of a warrior, somebody whoÂ’s going to be out there and be accountable every single play.Â” It takes more than determination, good health and some good fortune to achieve that. Giants gen-eral manager Jerry Reese recognizes that. Â“Michael would get recognized most of the time as a pass rusher, and he was a great one,Â” Reese says. Â“But he could also play the run as well as anybody at that position. He was great against the run.Â” He also was a teacher. Jason Pierre-Paul, the GiantsÂ’ main sacks threat these days, notes that Strahan taught Osi Umenyiora the tricks of the trade. Umenyiora passed them along to Kiwanuka, who did the same for Pierre-Paul. Reese took over for Ernie Accorsi as Giants GM in 2007, and his first task directly involved his star defensive end. Strahan held out of training camp, immediately setting up a challenge the new gener-al manager had to over-come. Obviously, the sides reached a deal, and six months later, the Giants were champions. Â“Coach (Tom) Coughlin said when Chris Snee retired, Â‘Give me 100 Chris Snees on my team,Â” Reese says. Â“Well, you can give me 200 Michael Strahans.Â”
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014 Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: IÂ’m a 21-year-old man who has been a successful swim mer in high school and now in college. Over the past few months, I have become obsessed with developing six-pack abs. I have never had much success with women, and I thought that looking like a movie star might finally get me noticed and make me feel good about myself. As a result, I have become obsessive about my diet. I have dropped 10 pounds, mostly muscle, and my performance in the pool has suffered. If I donÂ’t see perfect definition between every ab and donÂ’t exercise for at least 2 1/2 hours a day, I feel fat and guilty whenever I eat. I have awakened in the middle of the night worry ing about what IÂ’ll eat the next day. IÂ’m concerned for the future when my metabolism will inevitably slow down. I have begun to think that death is a better sce nario than being fat, or feeling that way. I want to be able to enjoy eating again and get my life back. I donÂ’t want to tell my parents or friends for fear of seeming weak-minded. Where can I go for help? Â— FEELING LOST IN NEW MEXICO DEAR FEELING LOST: Physical perfection is no guarantee that youÂ’ll find love. Liking yourself and accepting yourself for who you are is what attracts others. Although Â“looking like a movie starÂ” can be an asset -depending upon who the movie star is -unless you are secure about who you are and what you have to offer, you canÂ’t maintain a healthy relationship. (If you donÂ’t believe me, look at the tabloids and start counting how many movie star romances resemble a game of musical chairs.) If you truly think that death might be preferable to being fat, then you are in trouble. You may have a serious eating disorder, one that could shorten your life. Most people who have an eating disorder need professional help to overcome it, so the place to go is to your student health center. Ask to speak with a mental health coun selor about what youÂ’re doing and how youÂ’re feeling. It is important that you understand what has caused this so you can be successfully treated. DEAR ABBY: My parentsÂ’ 25th wedding anniversary is coming up. I thought it would be nice to have a dinner with the 12 to 14 people who were in their wedding party. If I had it at a nice restaurant, would it be rude to ask them to pay their own way for dinner? I am only 21 and just graduated from college, so I canÂ’t manage it on my own. Any advice? -SON OF Â“SILVERÂ” PARENTS IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR SON: I think the sentiment is sweet, but if you are going to have this kind of an anniversary party for your parents, you should wait until you can afford to host it. For this one, invite your parents out for dinner, and give them the kind of party youÂ’re planning on their 30th. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can take on a challenge, but donÂ’t be too quick to comment or criticize. Put your energy into per sonal advancement and improvements. DonÂ’t let anyone bully you. DonÂ’t strike back with force; let success be your revenge. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): DonÂ’t prom ise more than you can deliver.

Put greater effort into a unique idea, trip or skill you would like to master. Love will lead to greater stability at home. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You tend to think big. Take a step back and listen to advice. Starting small and working your way toward something great will ensure that you donÂ’t cause anyone added stress. A feud will develop if you are overbearing. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do whatever you can to make your money grow for you. DonÂ’t donate or let your generosity lead you to the poorhouse. Keep your spending to a minimum and lock your savings up in a safe place. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look at the big pic ture. Avoid arguments with colleagues and peers. Do your job and stay out of trouble. ItÂ’s what you accomplish that will count, not what you say you are going to do. DonÂ’t let an emotional matter affect your productivity. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep life simple. Look at all your options. Find a way to do more with less. Put love on a pedestal and plan some thing romantic. Creative projects will lead to an unusual opportunity. A change in lifestyle will be beneficial. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Collect old debts and consider investments that will allow you to utilize your skills in unusual ways. A change at home must be made for the right reasons. DonÂ’t let a personal matter cost you or lead to impulsive action. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): DonÂ’t both er sharing your personal thoughts with peers, friends or family.

Do some thing to boost your con fidence or make you feel good about the way you look and what you have to offer. Romance will lead to personal stability. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Obsession over six-pack abs puts swimmer in unsafe water Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
