As a sign of how quickly the process was moving, the chairmen of the House and Senate committees working to revise the map released a joint proposal Thursday, hoping to hold committee votes on Friday and gain approval from the full Legislature early next week. Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis, who ruled last month that two congressional districts were drawn in 2012 to help the Republican Party in violation of anti-gerrymandering rules passed by voters in 2010, has set an Aug. 15 deadline for lawmakers to give him a new plan. The Republicans who run both legislative chambers said they would focus on correcting the two districts targeted by Lewis: Congressional District 5, represented by Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown, which sprawls across eight counties as it winds its way from Jacksonville to Orlando; and Congressional District 10, represented by Republican Congressman Dan Webster.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 8-9, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Prosecutor says Pistorius lied in testimonyPRETORIA, South Africa The chief prosecutor in Oscar Pistorius murder trial said Thursday in closing arguments that the athlete repeatedly lied during testimony in a crude attempt to defend himself against a murder charge for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel cited flaws in the defense, saying the Olympians legal team floated more than one theory about what happened on the night that Pistorius shot Steenkamp through a closed toilet door in his home. Defense lawyers had argued that Pistorius fired in self-defense, fearing an intruder, Nel said, but they also raised the possibility that he was not criminally responsible and accidentally shot because he was startled.Clooney, fiancee post legal notice to marry LONDON George Clooney and his fiancee have posted a legal notice declaring their intention to marry in Italy.

Researchers from the University of South Florida said they used DNA and other tests to identify the remains of George Owen Smith, who was 14 when he disappeared in 1940 from the now-closed school. They couldnt say how he died. Official records indicated 31 burials at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys, but researchers found the remains of 55 people during a four-month excavation last year. Researchers said Owens body was found in a hastily-buried grave wrapped only in a burial shroud. His DNA matched a sample taken from his sister. We may never know the full circumstances of what happened to Owen or why his case was handled the way it was, Erin Kimmerle, the lead researcher and an associate anthropology professor, said in a news release. But we do know that he now will be buried under his own name and beside family members who longed for answers.6-foot gator knocks on door of central Fla. home VIERA Marie Maxwell says she was watching Jeopardy when she heard a knock at the door of her home in the Suntree neighborhood near Viera. When she opened it, an alligator she believes was longer than 6 feet was staring at her. Maxwell told Florida Today she shut the door and called police on Saturday evening. By the time they arrive, the gator was gone. She believes the alligator retreated into a pond behind her home. She called an alligator trapper, who on Sunday put what looked like a large pot roast on a rope in the pond. On Wednesday, something took the bait and Maxwell called the trapper. He pulled a 4-foot alligator from the pond, but Maxwell says its smaller than the door-knocking gator. So the search continues.Officials suspect food poisoning in dog deathsDAYTONA BEACH Some health officials now suspect food poisoning in the deaths of two greyhounds and the illnesses of 97 others at the Daytona Beach Kennel Club & Poker Room. On April 6, kennel workers found one dog dead in a pool of blood and another one gravely ill. State reports show that 97 other greyhounds in the same kennel exhibited either vomiting or diarrhea or both. The gravely ill dog was euthanized, while the others recovered.

By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com Columbia County com missioners voted to rezone a roughly one-acre piece of land off State Road 47 about one and a half miles north of Interstate 75 from residential single-fami ly to general commercial in a 4-1 vote at Thursday nightÂ’s county commission meeting. Monsta Clothing wants to buy this piece of land, located behind their new building and in front of a neighborhood, so that it has the land in case it ever needs to expand the busi ness onto it, Monsta CEOs Chris Cuadras and Tony Curtis said at the meeting. They said currently they have no plans to expand their business onto that land. Right now, there is a house on the land that Cuadras, Curtis, some of the commissioners and others who made public comments at the meet ing called an Â“eyesore.Â” Cuadras and Curtis said for now, they will fix up the house and rent it out. Commissioner Scarlet Frisina was the only one who voted to not rezone the land, which lies in her district. She agreed with comments made by peo ple whose houses are in the neighborhood behind the land. During the public hearing, homeowners said one of their concerns is what could happen to the land if Monsta decided to sell it. Frisina said as Monsta grows it may need to relo cate and her concern is what the owners who buy the land after Monsta will do with it. What future owners of the property do could hurt the neighbor hood adjacent to the prop erty by decreasing land val ues and creating traffic and noise and light pollution, Frisina said. She said she understands Monsta has no current plans to build on the land, and she said she believes when and if Monsta does build on the land it will build a nice build ing that doesnÂ’t intrude on homeowners. But once the land is rezoned to be com mercial property, future owners can do whatever they like with the proper ty without consulting the homeowners there or the county commission board, Frisina said. The county zoning board made a recommen dation to commissioners to deny the rezoning request. Frisina said com missioners rarely vote against the zoning boardÂ’s recommendation and she didnÂ’t think the board should go against its recommendation in this case either. County planner Brian Kepner said the zoning boardÂ’s reasoning for recommending not to rezone the land is that there were Â“no changed or changing conditions in the area that would be advantageous to the neighborhood or the com munity.Â” Commissioner Stephen Bailey disagreed with the zoning boardÂ’s reasoning and said he believes the area is changing. It has become much more com mercial in recent years. The other commissioners agreed with him. During the public hear ing, three women spoke in favor of keeping the land as residential property, and seven people, includ ing Cuadras and Curtis, spoke in favor of rezoning it commercial. Also at the meeting, Richard Powell, who did the county audit, gave a presentation on the coun tyÂ’s financial report for the 2012-13 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, 2013. He gave the county high marks. Powell specifically commended the county for increasing its fund balance.

While FDOE holds the schoolÂ’s ultimate fate in its hands, executive director of FDOEÂ’s office of inde pendent education and parental choice Adam Miller said the Columbia County school district has the power to decide wheth er to keep the school open while the board reaches its decision. Huddleston said heÂ’s unsure right now if the school will be open for the start of the new year but has a conference call on Monday with FDOE char ter school directors. After that, he said heÂ’ll have a better idea of whether the school will be open for the beginning of the year. According to Florida statute, in order for FDOE to allow Shining Star to stay open, the schoolÂ’s learning gains must be comparable to or better than the learn ing gains of similarly sit uated students in nearby district public schools. The state board has interpreted the statute to mean that a charter schoolÂ’s learn ing gains Â— which it says are based on state assess ments, disability status and English learner language status Â— must be equal to or better than the gains of the three geographical ly closest district public schools. Since Shining Star is a kindergarten through sev enth grade school, FDOE will compare the learning gains of third-, fourthand fifth-grade students at Shining Star to those of students at Pinemount, Summers and Westside elementary schools. It will compare the learning gains of the charter schoolÂ’s sixthand seventh-grade students to sixth and seventh graders at Lake City Middle School and Richardson Middle School. At the hearing, which will be conducted by con ference call, Columbia County school district offi cials are allowed to share their opinions on wheth er Shining Star should be allowed to remain open. APPEALContinued From 1A From staff reports SUWANNEE COUNTY Â— A Mayo teen was killed in a single-vehicle accident on State Road 51 crossing the Suwannee River Friday, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. Danielle Nicole Ezell, 19, died at the scene, FHP said in a news release. Sometime between 2 a.m. and noon, Ezell's 2004 GMC pickup struck the right guardrail while cross ing the Hal Adams Bridge heading north, the release said. The pickup then veered left and vaulted over the west guardrail, where it traveled down a steep ravine and came to rest upright. Ezell, who was not wear ing a seat belt, was ejected, FHP said. Anyone with information on the crash is asked to contact FHP Cpl. Gabriel Keyes at 754-6270 or gabri firstname.lastname@example.org. Crash claims life of teen By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Clifton Ward hopes to become the Columbia County District 4 commissioner in order to make the county a better place. Â“It is my goal to be a commis sioner who, through hard work and ethics, will make Columbia County a place that industry will seek,Â” he said. He said the county must work to ensure any obstacles that could delay the start-up of the North Florida Intermodal Park are removed. Doing so would only bring economic prosperity to the county sooner. Ward said while looking to bring new businesses to the county, he will also remember to support existing local businesses who have continued to provide jobs to the community. Another goal that Ward hopes to achieve is the restoration of faith in local government. Â“Confidence in our government at all levels is at an all time low,Â” he said. Â“This is due primarily to elected officials not fully explain ing or justifying their actions and decisions to their constituents.Â” Ward explained that officials must be honest with their citizens to rebuild the trust that has been damaged and broken. Along with these goals, Ward said he hopes to continue to pro vide citizen safety and security in the county, as well as make it a priority to preserve the sacred environment Columbia County is so lucky to have. Â“We must not allow any industry which has not demonstrated their ability to protect our beautiful riv ers, springs and lakes to operate in Columbia County,Â” Ward said. Along with many years of lead ership experience in the military, Ward has 40 years of experi ence in developing and following state agency budgets and plans, including working for the Florida Department of Transportation. Â“I can work well with fellow commissioners,Â” he said. Â“I fully understand that in order to make the political process work for the people, a politician must under stand when to practice the art of compromise on everything except common ethics.Â” By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Everett A. Phillips is running for the District 4 county com mission seat for the first time in hopes of making sure Columbia CountyÂ’s money is being spent wisely. Â“I want the county to gain con trol of tax money and spending by making sure that all of our projects are being taken care of the way they should be,Â” Phillips said. He said that he wants to ensure that county proj ects are being completed on budget, with the amount of money initially decided upon. He hopes to keep taxes from going up. Â“It is going to take a lot of new businesses in this county to make everything go a little bet ter,Â” Phillips said. Â“What we need in Columbia County is more busi nesses and more industry.Â” Phillips has lived in Columbia his whole life and believes his experience will help him as a county representative. He owned and operated EverettÂ’s Custom Services for over 19 years and has experience in construction and road building. He believes his current man agement of BubbaÂ’s Site Prep will also help him further develop the county. Â“I have prospered from this county a whole lot,Â” Phillips said. Â“I would like to see if I can give some of it back by helping the county utilize our money a little better.Â” Everett Phillips: County Commission Dist. 4 By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Richard J. Keen is running for his first term in County Commission District 4 in hopes of putting the public back into the political process. Â“The biggest thing is re-involv ing people in local government,Â” he said. Â“Letting them know what is on the table and what is taking place in meetings.Â” Keen said he wants to make the concerns of the public concerns of his own by listening to their feed back. He said that there have been far too many county meetings in which members of the public have not been present. Â“If the public isnÂ’t there, they arenÂ’t speaking. If they arenÂ’t speaking, their concerns are not being heard,Â” he said. Keen, 25-year head coach of the Lake City Middle School football Falcons, said he wants to make sure that his constituents arenÂ’t standing on the sidelines, but rath er playing in the game, assisting in governmental plays. After graduating from Columbia County High School in 1983, Keen wore several different hats for the county as a property appraiser, code enforcement officer and, final ly, a building inspector. He then started his own local construction business called Hometown Homes, which he still operates while also continuing to coach. He said that his most signifi cant accomplishment happens on a daily basis, when he watches his players grow up and become suc cessful citizens of Lake City. Â“ItÂ’s a special process for me to watch them develop into hard working citizens doing great things in their hometown,Â” Keen said. Keen said he hopes to continue to generate jobs so that Columbia County students can find local work after graduation. Â“We must bring jobs to Columbia County and put people back to work,Â” he said. Â“I want to make it a place our kids can stay and continue to call home, without having to move to big cities to find jobs.Â” Keen said he feels the unem ployment rate is much too high in the county and hopes to generate financial growth by bringing new industries to the area. Â“We have property available, and water and sewage supplied by the city,Â” he said. Â“We have to do our best to attract businesses to our county.Â” By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com After following the county com mission for years, Toby Witt said his goal this term is to stand up against wasteful spending in District 4. Â“There is spending we donÂ’t need to have while in this reces sion,Â” he said. Â“We need to wait on some things and do a better job budgeting.Â” Witt, who has attended commis sion meetings for over 10 years, ran for the same position in 2010 and lost by a narrow 2 percent margin. He started working as an EMT in 1993, then became a para medic in 1996. In 2002, he became a flight paramedic and has been an operations logistics operator for the past three years. Â“We are over 14 locations, so there is a $30 million budget we oversee,Â” he said. Witt feels he has the financial knowledge Columbia County needs and said he knows some one needs to speak up and gen erate a system to strengthen the countyÂ’s economic development. Â“In this recession we have all had to reign in spending in our homes,Â” he said on his campaign Facebook page. Â“We have all had to put on hold thingsÂ…that are not essential. Our commission should be doing the same.Â” Witt also said he plans to make commission meetings open to public comment, as well as make the government more open in general as he thinks public opin ion is a very important aspect of local government. He plans to employ better pro cess management, by learning from past mistakes and imple menting new processes that will insure that projects stay on time and on budget. Witt plans on doing this by advocating to pay experienced workers fair wages to keep lon gevity and accountability in the local workforce. Â“There are no easy answers but there are simple answers,Â” Toby quoted from President Ronald Reagan on his Facebook page. Â“We must have the courage to do what is morally right.Â” Phillips Richard Keen: County Commission Dist. 4 Keen Clifton Ward: County Commission Dist. 4 Ward Toby Witt: County Commission Dist. 4 Witt Monsta gets rezoning OK from county
A mericansÂ’ apparent indif-ference to debt appears, at last, to be waning. Data show that credit card balances are at their lowest level in a decade, a good sign that we either have more money at the end of the month or that we are beginning to realize that paying 20 percent interest on yesterdayÂ’s purchase isnÂ’t great financial plan-ning. But the problem with debt is far from over, as a disturbing new study from the Urban Institute shows. More than 35 percent of Americans have been reported to credit agen-cies for unpaid debts, according to the institute. Certainly some of those involve debts that are in dispute. But most are bills that Americans canÂ’t or wonÂ’t pay. The problem is particularly acute in the South and West, as you might expect. Credit is no less available in poorer areas of the country, but it comes with higher interest rates and more penalizing terms. Of Dallas residents, 44 percent are receiving collection agency calls and visits. Imagine that. Almost half the people walking down the street are leaving themselves vulnerable to nasty letters in the mail or unwel-come phone calls. The problem is a serious one. Being reported to a collection agency can have negative conse-quences on more than a personÂ’s credit score. It can affect whether someone gets a job or qualifies for housing or student loans. Many of these debts are tied to medical bills. Older people and even younger people in poor health find themselves with crippling hospital bills that they simply canÂ’t keep up with. There are no clear answers to this debt problem. We can hope that the fact that people are manag-ing their consumer credit better is a positive sign that collection activities will decline over time as well. That depends, of course, on a strong economy and an improved job market with better wages for poorer Americans. And thatÂ’s far from guaranteed.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com The Internal Revenue Service continues to keep Congress, or least the House half of it, busy with investigations into the harassment of the Tea Party and how email evidence of IRS abuse mysteriously disappears. The dogs are eat ing a lot of the homework at the IRS. The emails th at can be found reveal the partisanship of IRS officia ls who refer to Republicans as Â“crazies.Â” ItÂ’s the stuff of a low-budget spy thriller, but the agencyÂ’s biggest game is being played right out in the open. Taxpayers are paying an army of IRS agents to work full time to elect more Democrats. ItÂ’s all disguised, of course. The IRS offers government salaries, office space and equipment to representatives of the National Treasury Employees Union, and last week the deputy commissioner of the IRS reported to the House Ways and Means Committee that these IRS employees spent 573,319 hours in 2012 working on union business. ThatÂ’s the equivalent of 286 full-time employees doing nothing but union work. These employees charged $687,400 in travel to the taxpayers. In May 2012, for one example, union stew ards flew at taxpayer expense to Las Vegas for unio n Â“training.Â” These Â“trainingÂ” events, put on by the union, are expensive. In 2010 an IRS Â“trainingÂ” con vention cost $4.1 million. Â“InstructionalÂ” videos, par odies of Â“Star TrekÂ” episodes, were created to Â“instructÂ” agency employees. The union naturally wants greater benefits, bigger salaries and more handsome bonuses and somebody has to lobby Congress to get them. So Congress pays the union to do it. This year, 94 percent of campaign contributions from the National Treasury Employees UnionÂ’s political action committee have gone to Democrats, including 13 candidates for U.S. Senate. All of them are Democrats, including Michelle Nunn in Georgia and Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky. With hundreds of thousands of dollars left in the bank, union money will flow to candidates as needed to keep the Senate under Democratic con-trol. The director of all this is Colleen M. Kelley, the president of the union and a big fan of President Obama. Ms. Kelley is a member of the Federal Salary Council, which advises the government about how much to pay federal employees, appoint-ed by Mr. Obama. The IRS employs 92,000 men and women, and most of them work hard to collect the taxes neces-sary to pay for the necessary government. Many are no doubt Republicans and other conservatives. TheyÂ’re victims, too, of the unionÂ’s campaign to make the government bigger, the better to harass and threaten taxpayers. Taxpayers rightly expect to pay employees who do only the publicÂ’s business. Congress should pull the plug on Â“union timeÂ” busi-ness throughout the bureaucracy, and the IRS is a good place to start.The tax manÂ’s politics Q Washington TimesEisenhower memorial follows familiar patternF or the millions eagerly wait-ing to visit the long-planned Eisenhower memorial on a four-acre site on the National Mall, thereÂ’s bad news. The powers that be are still Â— still Â— fighting over what it should look like 15 years after the federal government approved the idea of a memorial to Dwight Eisenhower, the 34th president and five-star gen-eral who served as supreme allied commander in Europe during World War II. You will remember the uproar a few years ago when designers decided to portray Eisenhower as a carefree farm boy. I asked his granddaughter Susan, an accom-plished, genteel woman, what she thought. She was apoplectic: Eisenhower may have been proud to have grown up in Kansas, but she was adamant that depicting him as a young farm boy was not the way to remember her dignified grandfather in the first presidential memorial of the 21st century. The farm boy idea bit the dust. The current design depicts Eisenhower the soldier address-ing troops with an inscription that reads: Â“The tide has turned. The free men of the world are march-ing together to victory.Â” It, too, has drawn criticism as not grand enough, too cartoony, too big, too expensive. But many love it. Even as the few remaining Americans who fought on D-Day and in the Battle of the Bulge would appreciate seeing a memorial to Eisenhower before they die, the controversy in Washington grows more intense. Groundbreaking was supposed to start two years ago. The ground is still intact. Currently, Congress has approved no money for construction The hapless Eisenhower Memorial Commission finds itself trying to defend itself from congres-sional critics who say the memo-rial is just another Washington boondoggle. The House Natural Resources Committee wonders where the $41 million spent on the project has gone. There are calls for scrapping the design, by the renown Frank Gehry architectural firm, in favor of holding a public design competition. The all-powerful National Capital Planning Commission has voted 7-3 to oppose the design. Gehry said in a statement his seven years of work on the memorial have been pro bono. He is disheartened that poli-tics has gotten into the mix. In Washington politics always gets into the mix. The contro-versy of Maya LinnÂ’s somber wall engraved with the names of those who died in Vietnam was searing although most agree now it is one of the most moving memorials ever conceived. The eerie spectacle of 19 lifesize American soldiers in Korea wearing ponchos cast in steel rising out of the ground thrilled most but appalled some. There were many questions about early fundraising efforts for the memo-rial and a group of early support-ers for a memorial was disgraced. Ambassador Douglas MacArthur II is quoted as saying, Â“I only wish that the swindlers who conned so many of us could be slowly and painfully emasculated.Â” Finally, the memorial was dedicated in 1995 and is considered one of the most inspir-ing memorials in the nation. ItÂ’s hard to believe how intense the fury was over the World War II Memorial, located between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, with its water fountains, pavilions, Field of Stars and sculptures. Although it is now wildly popular, especially with veterans, the design still rankles some, with one describing it Â“as a kind of corny pseudo-European classicism that is out of place on the Mall.Â” It finally was dedicated in 2004 after decades of controversy, with funds raised by former senator and WWII veteran Bob Dole. It was built with $181 million in private donations and only $16 million in taxpayer money. The simple, dignified memorial to Franklin Delano Roosevelt took 41 years to finish. Some didnÂ’t like the stooped Depression-era figures and five water features. Others were upset that Roosevelt, disabled by polio, is not shown in a wheelchair. Volunteers raised the money for another statue at the entrance show-ing him in a wheelchair. DonÂ’t despair, you who like Ike. His memorial is scheduled to be dedicated on Memorial Day 2017 at a cost of $142 million. Eventually, everybody will love it.

Â“We have made big strides, but there are more things we want to see hap pen,Â” he said. Â“They are long term projects and they will take at least another term to be completed.Â” As chairman of city com mittees on both airport and utility projects, Ward said each will have a good impact on the area, hope fully bringing in new indus try. Â“We need more investors to come in and build some thing,Â” he said. Â“By doing projects like these we are positioning ourselves to be able to accept new growth from residential, commer cial and industrial pros pects.Â” The airport project will include taxiway repair and a new fuel truck for large jets, Ward said. He said the committee was recently told the taxiway will be 100 percent funded by grants from the state and Federal Aviation Administration. The grants will cover the overlay, lengthening and widening of the taxiway. Plans for the utility proj ect include a new waste water treat ment plant, which has already been designed and will soon be out for bids, Ward said. He said it is difficult to see any obstacles for these goals because all the money is already in place. Ward said he is very proud of the leadership City Manager Wendell Johnson has provided over the past year, which has allowed him to make these projects realities. Â“I am honored to have him because he is the all-around best manager,Â” Ward said. Â“He has made such a positive impact on the city financially and I hope that is something we can continue.Â” Ward said he knows he is the best candidate for District 14 city councilman because of his experience and service to the nation as a U.S. Marine. Â“I have the background to understand the techni cal and financial nature of such decisions,Â” he said. My background in busi ness has made the cityÂ’s financial, budgetary and management issues much easier to understand and therefore helped me to make well-informed deci sions.Â”George Ward: City Council Dist. 14By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Ricky Jernigan is run ning for District 14 city councilman in hopes of cre ating a fresh start for the city of Lake City. Â“Times are changing so fast,Â” he said. Â“This elec tion gives the city a chance to get new people in the council to start fresh with the same vision.Â” Jernigan said he is pri marily interested in the financial growth of the city, saying that he has a grand vision for the area. Â“I donÂ’t want to tell, I want to show,Â” he said. Â“I want to make Lake City a place that tourists come to stay, not just a pitstop they use to fill up with gas on their way to Disney World.Â” He said he realizes that money is always a matter that has to be considered, but said nothing can stop his vision. Â“To make money, you have to spend money,Â” Jernigan said. Â“If it takes a little money to get people in here, we will have to do just that.Â” Jernigan said that Lake City has certain resourc es that canÂ’t be found any where else. For one, it has the best water in the state because of our lakes, he said. He said he believes he has the mindset for the job because he can think of things that no one else is going to think of. He said he plans on going to other cities and bringing their good ideas back to the area to increase its productivity and growth. Overall, Jernigan said his slogan says it all: Â“Review, Reduce, Rejoice.Â” He said that as District 14 councilman, he hopes to review city and coun ty rules and regulations, reduce taxes, expenses and big government, and rejoice in the American dream. As a corrections offi cer lieutenant of over 31 years, Jernigan said he enjoys keeping the public safe. He said his mother always taught him to be courageous enough to do the right thing and try to always be the best you can be at whatever it is you are destined to do. Â“I just want to do some thing good by the people of this city,Â” he said. Â“I want to do something good for this place.Â”Ricky Jernigan: City Council Dist. 14 Ward Jernigan By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Adee Farmer hopes to secure the District 10 city council seat in order to ensure better representation of the people there. Â“I am concerned about the people in my area,Â” he said. Â“I have general care for the people and what goes on with them.Â” Farmer said he wants better rep resentation for the people of District 10 because that is where he is from. Â“I want to educate myself on the county and city policies so I can let people know what is going on,Â” Farmer said. Â“There will be no closed-door sessions because I work for the people.Â” He said that one of his main goals is to help bridge the gap between the city and county so that the two can work together to make the area the best it can be. Â“We need to attract more people to move here,Â” he said. Â“And there are multiple ways to do that.Â” Farmer said the new North Florida Intermodal Park is a good start to opening up a larger gateway for Florida and Lake City. It will be big in itself, but it will also attract other businesses, he said. Farmer, who went to play football at Florida A&M and work as a law enforcement officer in Leon County after graduating from Columbia High School, eventually returned to Lake City to give back to the com munity that raised him. He now works at the Challenger Learning Center and is founder of the Lake City Exposure Foundation, which gives children a chance to go to college sports camps. Â“The purpose is to give them the exposure to college life that could encourage them to want to eventu ally go,Â” Farmer said. Â“IÂ’ve had kids go on to the NFL or to play in col lege, and then there are other kids who have gone on to go pro in law enforcement and other careers.Â” Farmer said that either way, it is his passion to help people. Â“ItÂ’s all for the people,Â” he said. Â“ThatÂ’s why I want this position, to represent the people.Â”Adee Farmer: City Council Dist. 10 Farmer By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Eugene Jefferson is running for reelection as city councilman in District 10 in hopes of making a difference in the community of Lake City. On his campaign website, he thanks local residents for granting him the privilege to serve as city councilman since 1998, and assures that he is still committed to the promise he made Lake City. Â“My decisions will be based on that which is in the best interest of all citizens, rather than individuals, special groups or a selected few,Â” he wrote on the website. Â“Furthermore, I remain committed to my promise to serve you with honesty, integrity, respect and self-commitment.Â” Jefferson plans to work for the improvement of drainage and storm water systems with in the district, as well as ensure the safety of streets and neighborhoods. He said he plans to be available and responsible to the people of District 10 and says he offers Â“performance not promisesÂ” while allowing the concerns of citizens to become con cerns of his own. Jefferson has been a Lake City resident since 1981 and is married to Betty A. Wilson Jefferson. They have three children, as well as five grandchildren. After graduating high school, he pursued a sociology degree at Florida A&M University and a masterÂ’s degree in social work. He worked with the Department of Corrections as a senior human services coun selor administrator at North Florida Reception Center in Lake Butler until 2012, when he retired. He is now an active mem ber and choir member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Lake City where he serves as the adult Sunday school teacher. Jefferson is also a member of the Public Safety Committee, the City Utility Advisory Committee, Friends of the Columbia County Public Library, the Northeast Florida, Suwannee and Florida Leagues of Cities. Jefferson said he believes he pos sesses the qualification, expertise and desire to continue serving the city of Lake City as District 10 coun cilman. Â“To make this a reality, I need your support and prayers,Â” he wrote on his campaign page. Â“But more importantly, on August 26, 2014, I need your vote.Â”Eugene Jefferson: City Council Dist. 10 Jeerson By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Harold Perry said he fears the community has lost confidence in local government and hopes to reinstall that faith by becoming the next District 10 councilman. Â“A lot of things have been neglected in this district complete ly,Â” he said. Â“I plan to turn that around.Â” Perry, a previous Columbia County Road Department employ ee, said the water system hasnÂ’t been refurbished in decades and that pipes have been rusting out and bursting, but the city has yet to do anything about it in his area. Â“I have no offense to them put ting new pipelines going west and south, but they could split the difference and get some in District 10,Â” Perry said. Â“Funds need to be shared properly across all districts, but they seem to have forgotten all about it in District 10.Â” Perry said his most important goal is to get the industrial job market growing. Lake City is the Gateway to Florida, so there should be no problem getting industry in here, he said. Â“We need to give our kids better jobs and give everyone a better lifestyle by bringing jobs in our area,Â” he said. Â“When kids get out of school, they are having to leave Lake City to find jobs, and that shouldnÂ’t be happening.Â” Perry, who now works with the Boys and Girls Club, said he thinks vocational centers could be placed downtown to give children the skills they need to acquire jobs after high school. The city and county can work together for the future of our kids, he said. He said to incentivize warehouse businesses to plant here, the city should give the companies large tax breaks. It wouldnÂ’t have to break the city, he said, but we have to give them a good reason to want to come here and build something. Â“These warehouses could work because we have Interstate 10, Interstate 75, Georgia Southern and CSX railroads,Â” Perry said. Â“It can work, but only if we make an effort. Without an effort, we will never start and it will be too late.Â”Harold Perry: City Council Dist. 10 Perry
FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, August 8 & 9, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A T he book of Daniel is among the greatest of the pro phetic books in the Bible. Daniel, one of the Hebrew children taken captive to Babylon, by King Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel chapter 1), was allowed by God to author this book. As he grew into manhood he grew in the favor of our Lord because of his faith fulness. As Daniel closes out his book in chapter 12, he gives us a picture of what I believe is how things are today. He wrote in verse 4: Â“But you Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall increase.Â” All would certainly agree that knowledge has increased by leaps and bounds. As knowledge increases it moves man farther and farther away from God. Putting it sim ply, the word Â“knowledgeÂ” means Â“to know.Â” But man today seeks to have knowledge of everything but God. Peter closes his second epistle with these words: Â“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forev er. Amen.Â” Having knowledge does not necessarily mean one has wisdom. A wise man uses knowledge to glorify God. A fool is one who has knowledge and does not glorify God. True wisdom only comes from God and can only be obtained by seeking it the right way. It seems as though we have lost the true meaning of wisdom. So to find what is true wisdom from above we must turn to the book from above, the Bible. The book of Proverbs tells us how to have wisdom from above. I challenge you to prayerfully meditate on Proverbs, especially the first nine chapters. By only reading scriptures we often miss the true mean ing. First of all, what is wisdom? Wisdom is the power of judging rightly and following the sound est course of action. The Greek word means Â“a right use of the mind.Â” We quickly see in Proverbs 1 and 2 the emphasis is on godly wisdom. Now what is the first step to receive wisdom? Proverbs 1:7, Â“The fear of the Lord is the begin ning of knowledge.Â” Fear here means to have a deep reverence or trust in God. So we see that to begin to have knowledge is to put our trust in God. Notice it says the Â“beginning of knowledge.Â” We must put all our trust in Him for there is no true knowledge except that which comes from God. Notice the last part of verse seven says Â“but fools despise wisdom and instruction.Â” We clearly see to reject our Lord is to be a fool. Again the first step of gaining wisdom is to trust in the Lord. To have wisdom, we have to work for it. In Proverbs chapter 2:1, 3 and 4 we find three Â“ifs.Â” Until we heed the message of these three Â“ifsÂ” we will never have true wisdom. Verse 1: Â“My son if you receive My words and treasure My commands within you.Â” Verse 2: Â“So that you incline your ear to wisdom (incline your ear means to keep it open to hear all) and apply your heart to understanding.Â” The word heart here means your whole being. Verse 3: Â“Yes, if you cry for discernment (knowledge) and lift up your voice for understanding.Â” Verse 4 and 5: Â“If you seek her as silver and search for her as hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find knowledge of God.Â” Only Godly knowledge leads to wisdom BIBLE STUDIES Hugh Sherrillemsemail@example.com Q Hugh G. Sherrill, Pastor Philippi Baptist Church1444 County Road 18 C aleb, a man from the tribe of Judah, is first introduced to us when he is selected as one of the twelve spies to spy out the Promise Land. At the age of forty he was a very strong warrior (Joshua 14:7). He and Joshua were the only two who came back from their mission think ing they could conquer the land. The other ten spies were afraid of those who currently possessed the land (Numbers 13:28, 31-33). The efforts of him and Joshua to persuade the other ten and the entire nation to put their faith in God was to no avail. Forty-five years later Caleb approaches Joshua and makes his plea for Joshua to give to him the land the Lord had promised to Caleb through Moses. Consider these statements by Caleb (from Joshua 14) which show how much faith and how determined he was to Â“receiveÂ” his portion of the land the Lord had promised. Q Caleb reminded Joshua of the promise God had made to both of them at Kadesh-barnea (v.6) Q After Caleb spied out the land he wanted to fol low the Lord his God fully (v.8) and God said that he did because he Â“had a different spiritÂ” (Numbers 14:24). Q Caleb, at 85 years old, told Joshua he was Â“still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent meÂ” to spy (v.10, 11). Q He believed the Lord might allow him to con quer the land, which He did. Caleb conquered the land of the Â“greatest man among the AnakimÂ” (v.12-15). Consider the confidence he had that his age was not going to be a factor in him doing what God said to do with regard to conquering the land. Look at the faith he had in God concerning the promise God had made to him over forty-five years ago. Meditate upon how determined Caleb was to go after what God said he could have. Caleb is a great example of faith and determination in God. He is a mentor and a great encourager. He shows us that we can actu ally do what God has said for us to do. Some might say he had more faith than we do today and they may be right. However, that should not be the case. Look at all the history we have that Caleb did not have concerning what God had done in the world. Regardless of when we live, faith still comes from hearing what God has done and placing our trust in those stories (Romans 10:17). Maybe we need to think more about these stories. We need the faith of Caleb to be able to live in our world just like Caleb lived in his world. Having the same deter mination as Caleb is some thing we must produce. It is not something that God is going to produce within us. It is something which comes about because of our faith. The greater our faith the more determined we should be that we can do what God has said. Again, maybe we are lack ing in our faith. Maybe because of a lack of faith in God we are less deter mined to do what God has said for us to do. As we get older, our faith in God and our deter mination to do what God has said should be increas ing. Older Christians should be the greatest encouragers and examples to younger Christians of how to have this determi nation. May we all attain the faith and determination of Caleb. May we all think and act like we can live in the Promised Land. Have faith like Caleb that produces determination BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeakcarlton_mc@msn.com Q Carlton G.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER FAITH & VALUES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 8-9, 2014 7A H ome life was fun. Dad liked to surprise us and do things Â“spur of the moment.Â” For example he liked to go to watch the planes come in. Occasionally dad took us to a dead-end street locat ed near the end of a run way at the former Dallas Love Field Airport. He would park the car and we would get out and sit on the hood of the car and wait and watch. Â“WhereÂ’s the plane, dad?Â” we asked impatiently. It wasnÂ’t long before he would say, Â“Here one comes now.Â” He pointed at what seemed to be a gigantic airplane coming in to land. Â“Hey dad, isnÂ’t that plane coming in too low?Â” The giant plane seemed to be floating, as it came in. The noise, as it passed over was loud. (I think this is one reason dad later needed hearing aids.) Dad loved doing this, especially as we got big ger. He learned as much as he could about flying, and eventually with his Â“Three Unusual DaysÂ” ministry, he became a mil lion-mile-flyer. He explained to us the principles of flight which we didnÂ’t understand. We just loved to go watch the planes come in. We asked him how something so big, so heavy, could fly. Dad simply said, Â“ItÂ’s what they are made to do.Â” Later in life, I worked at Timco as an Interior Mechanic and had an up-close and personal look at how planes fly. When a plane came in for a D-check for example, we would take everything out of the plane Â— even the floor. Everything was Â“taggedÂ” and Â“baggedÂ” and put on shelves. Everything was then inspected, cleaned and repaired or replaced, inspected again, put back on the plane, inspected again. The push to do a high quality job and be on time was and still is the chal lenge. Â“People are depend ing on your workÂ” is the motto. Our proud moment was always when, at the end of a check, the plane was rolled out, clean and ready to do what it was made to do Â— fly. What are we made to do? The choices are endless. Sin and its conse quences teach us what we are not made for. What are we made to do? 1) To glorify God. Â“That God in all things may be glorifiedÂ” (1 Pet. 4:11). The glory of God is a sil ver thread which must run through all our actions. So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of GodÂ” (I Corinthians 10:31). Sin, however, makes this impossible on our own (Romans 3:9-10; 6:26). GodÂ’s love came and walked among us in Jesus (John 1:12-14; 3:16). Just so we could once and for ever understand and enjoy what we are made for. 2) To enjoy a relation ship with God through Jesus (Romans 5:8-10; 8:1). 3) Have a home in heav en.

I t seems that every talk show host, not to mention the cover of every magazine, prom ises the latest answer to whatever problems we are experiencing. These answers pledge to solve our health problems, relationship problems, money problems, etc., and seem to be the result of the latest study, survey, or the newest information available. Now, I am not opposed to new information or studies. In fact, I think we are wise to stay in pursuit of knowledge and be life-long learners. My angst comes from the thinking that all the right answers have yet to be discovered; perhaps we just keep hop ing someone will come up with an easier route to deal with our problems. Our pastor recently challenged us to read continuously through the book of Proverbs, reading chapter one on the first day of the month, chapter two on the second, and so on. Since there are thirty-one chapters, there is an assigned chapter for any monthÂ’s worth of days. At first glance, Proverbs might seem to be just a collection of quaint, old-fashioned sayings, but after some consider ation, a pattern begins to develop of deep spiritual insights that focus on the character and works of God that are anything but outdated. A proverb is a short, concise sentence that expresses a moral truth not just intended to pres ent Â“knowledgeÂ” (having the facts), but to impart Â“wisdomÂ” (applying those facts to life). Further, the Hebrew word for Â“proverbÂ” means Â“to rule or govern.Â” Hence, the truths presented in the Proverbs provide pro found advice for us to live by. Written by King Solomon, called the wisest man who ever lived, the book begins with a pur pose statement: Â“The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insights; for acquiring a disci plined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discre tion to the young.Â” (Proverbs 1:1-4)A few things I noticed about this purpose state ment: the priority is about attaining wisdom and discipline. One with out the other can prove dangerous. Wisdom without dis cipline will give way to temptation (SolomonÂ’s accumulation of wives and concubines that led him away from the Lord is an obvious example) but discipline without wisdom can simply result in pun ishment or even abuse. Second, these verses donÂ’t argue basic spiri tual and moral beliefs. They assume the reader desires to do Â“what is right and just and fair,Â” not split hairs or look for loopholes about how to define each one. It seems being in agreement with GodÂ’s Word is a prereq uisite to comprehending SolomonÂ’s proverbs. Finally, Solomon seeks to influence the young with his experience and words of wisdom. A young person who ener getically seeks wisdom will have success, while those who mock and hate knowledge, calamity will overtake (Proverbs 1:26-27). This holds true wheth er we are young in years or at heart, so no matter what our age, I challenge you to take a deeper look at the wisdom and insight of SolomonÂ’s proverbs, because every heart mat ters!The best advice to live byHEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.net Q Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Min-istries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences, and oers biblical counseling to in-dividuals, couples and families.

ItÂ’s the same question that many of us ask when we think about opening GodÂ’s word after an absence of days, weeks, or months. Â“How can I make up for my failure before I dare to sit in his presence?Â” Â“Surely He is disappointed, with arms folded and a smug look of Â‘ItÂ’s about time, slacker.Â’Â” Â“Is He annoyed, exasperated, angry, cold?Â”Â“Is He even going to bless me with any insight after I have been absent from his word for so long?Â” When we look at ourselves, and our performance over the past few days (or weeks or months) to assess our right to come before God in his word and prayer, we are dangerously muting the same gospel truth we havenÂ’t been abiding in for however long. ItÂ’s the same truth that got us into a relationship with him in the first place Â— he is gracious! By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8Â–9) He says, Â“Come, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you restÂ” (Matthew 11:28). Whether it has been your busyness, laziness, or despon dency that has made you weary, and kept you distant, the call is the same: Â“Come!Â” There is an abundance of joy in his presence and pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16:11). We canÂ’t get this joy in punishing ourselves for not tasting the honey (Psalm 119:103). Come into his presence, and lap it up! When he who knew no sin became sin on our behalf (2 Corinthians 5:21); when there is no more condemna tion for us who are in Jesus Christ (Romans 8:1); when He who did not spare His own Son but gave him up for us all, how much more will He graciously give us all things (Romans 8:32) Â— including a very big open-armed invitation that says, Â“Come here, my dear one; I would be delighted to speak to you.Â” In the refrain of Psalm 136, His steadfast love endures forever. He wants restoration. He wants for you to hear his voice beckoning. HeÂ’ll have you back in a moment. Stop beating yourself down, and come. There is joy in GodÂ’s presence; donÂ’t punish yourself by avoiding it.
8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 8-9, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 CELEBRATE WITH SMOKEY By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com Seventy years later, Smokey Bear is still putting out fires Â— only this time, theyÂ’re birthday candles. The longtime U.S. Forest Service icon was born on Aug. 9, 1944, and will celebrate his 70th birthday Saturday. Smokey was created by the U.S. government during WWII because Americans were afraid ene mies would attempt to destroy one of the countryÂ’s main resources: timber. In 1941, a group of ad executives came together to form a nonprofit group called the Advertising Council, which created propaganda to support the war effort. In 1942, the group was incorporated as the War Advertising Council and continued to create ads advocating enlistment and conserva tion of war materials. One of the groupÂ’s first big projects came in 1944, which resulted in the birth of Smokey Bear, who would be used to encourage caution with fire in efforts to protect U.S. forestry. Â“He has appeal to adults because of the history they remem ber,Â” said Florida Forest Service Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Doc Bloodworth. Â“He has an appeal to children because of the character that he is.Â” According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, research found that Smokey was actually widely unrecog nizable to children, but more recog nizable to adults over 40. The article said that in the 1990s, the bear had a Q-Score, or likeability and aware ness of consumers, that topped many celebrities at 90 percent. After analyzing this, FFS decid ed that for SmokeyÂ’s 70th birthday, they were getting him a media make over to make him more relevant to the current generation. Rather than Â“Smokey the Bear, Smokey the Bear, prowlinÂ’ and growlinÂ’ and sniffinÂ’ the air,Â” he is now a softer, more cuddly creature who gives out bearhugs. The original 1944 Smokey slo gan was, Â“Smokey says -Care Will Prevent 9 out of 10 Forest Fires.Â” In 1947, the campaignÂ’s slogan changed to Â“RememberÂ… Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires.Â” After a large outbreak of wildfires in places other than forests, the slo gan was changed and still remains, Â“Only You Can Prevent Wildfires.Â” Bloodworth said that the message of Smokey Bear is just as relevant today as it was in 1944. Â“It is a fact that nine out of 10 wild fires are caused by people, and that is why SmokeyÂ’s original message is still important,Â” he said. Bloodworth said FFS makes it a priority to visit schools and other local centers to educate the public about the danger of fires and how to prevent them. Forest rangers from FFS will be at the Lake City Mall from 12-2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 9, to do that while celebrating SmokeyÂ’s birthday. Bloodworth said wherever they go with Smokey, they get a good reception. Â“We know that Smokey will always be a part of what we do, and itÂ’s occasions like these that allow us to widen our audience and be more visible and available to the public,Â” Bloodworth said. Â“It is an opportunity to celebrate his birthday while also engaging the public and getting our message across.Â” When singing happy birthday to the bear all the generations can now love, remember that his name is, and always has been, Smokey Bear. The word Â“theÂ” was only added to the 1952 Â“Smokey the BearÂ” song to maintain the rhythm of the lyrics. Bloodworth said it really is all about being SmokeyÂ’s friend and sharing that friendship with the very young and the very old. Â“That friendship gives us access to many places, and once there, we have a willing audience for our wildfire prevention program,Â” he said. Â“This gives us confidence in our message, this gives us a basis of trust with the community.Â” Smokey Bear turns 70 Saturday; will be at Lake City Mall for pictures. the fix to 5 and 10," said Rep. Richard Corcoran, a Land O' Lakes Republican who chairs the House committee charged with redrawing the lines. Because all congres sional districts must have roughly equal pop ulation, any change to one or two districts will ripple through other parts of the map. Democrats said more should be done, arguing that the trial revealed efforts by political con sultants to manipulate the 2012 redistricting process, which also could have tainted leg islative maps passed at the same time. But House Minority Leader Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale, seemed to hedge when asked how far his party would go. "We certainly want to see a broader rewrite, but we're going to abide by whatever the judge ordered," he said. Under the plan revealed by Corcoran and Senate Redistricting Chairman Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, Brown's district would no lon ger include the city of Sanford --it would instead pick up more of Putnam and Marion counties. All of Seminole County, which includes Sanford, would be included in Congressional District 7, now held by Republican Congressman John Mica, while the changes would force Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis' District 6 to pick up more of Volusia County. As for Webster's dis trict, it would lose an appendage of white vot ers in Orange County that Lewis found was includ ed to help the incum bent. Webster would pick up parts of Polk and Osceola counties to offset the population loss. District 9, current ly held by Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson, would shed parts of Osceola County, particularly the southern end, and Polk County while picking up the pop ulation Webster would give up. Republican Congressman Tom Rooney's District 17 would pick up the south ern end of Osceola to make up for population that was shifted into Webster's district. The plan differs signifi cantly from a proposal by two voting-rights groups that were among those challenging the current map in court. Those groups wanted Brown's district to instead run from Jacksonville in the east to Gadsden County in the west. That pro posal could have forced changes in District 3, which includes Columbia County. "Slight alterations will not correct the consti tutional defects Judge Lewis identified," wrote Deirdre Macnab, the president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, and Peter Butzin, chairman of Common Cause Florida, in a letter Thursday to legislative leaders. "The snaking north-south con figuration of CD 5 should be abandoned." But George Meros, an attorney for the House, ripped the east-west con figuration in a presen tation to the House and Senate redistricting com mittees Thursday after noon, saying it would decrease the chance for African-American voters to elect a candi date of their choice and was even more bizarre ly shaped than Brown's current district. "This to me looks like a surfboard that was attacked by Jaws in any number of different plac es," he quipped. It's still not clear whether the revisions will disrupt the elec tions scheduled for November. Lewis has not decided whether to delay elections in the districts affected by the new lines. Elections supervisors have argued that holding a separate special vote in those dis tricts after the general election could confuse voters and cause logisti cal problems. "I don't believe that a 2014 election, with out changing current Florida law, changing current federal law, is doable," Michael Ertel, the elections supervi sor in Seminole County, told the joint committee meeting. Sen. Darren Soto, D-Orlando, said he would propose an alter nate map that affects only Congressional Districts 5, 7 and 10 and would allow the current maps to be used in the primary and the new maps to be used in the general election. But that plan is not expected to go far in the GOP-controlled Senate. DISTRICTSContinued From 1ABy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com City officials plan to address the cityÂ’s stormwater issues, pave roads and give employ ees a three-percent pay increase through the cityÂ’s proposed $53.4 mil lion budget for fiscal year 2014-15. Thursday afternoon city officials spent more than two hours in the cityÂ’s second budget workshop where they tentatively decided to give all employ ees a three percent bump in pay. The salary increase will begin after Oct. 1. ThursdayÂ’s discussion about giving Grayson Cason, assistant city manager, Donna Duncan, finance director and Steve Roberts, utilities director, salary increases of more than three per cent was revisited and council members quick ly tempered the sugges tion. The proposed bud get originally included a proposed salary increase of more than $7,000 for Cason, about a $7,000 increase for Roberts and about a $5,000 increase for Duncan. Councilman Zack Paulk spoke out against the increases. Â“I just donÂ’t see where we should move people up with big (salary) advances like that,Â” he said. Â“To me itÂ’s a lot like favoritism. I just donÂ’t feel the way itÂ’s set up and designed is fair and consistent for everyone.Â” City Manager Wendell Johnson said itÂ’s not favor itism, but putting those employees in a salary/wage range equal to oth ers that hold the same position in similar sized towns based on a salary wage schedule provided by the Florida League of Cities. Councilman George Ward suggested the three get 4.5 percent pay increases, which the other city council members seemed favorable toward. However, city employ eesÂ’ income is governed by a salary schedule that determines intervals and methods for raises, and officials decided to give the three the same three percent salary increase given to the other city employees. City officials said they plan to review the salary schedule next year before budget time. City officials plan to pull $500,000 out of the cityÂ’s reserves and put the funds into a capital improvement fund to address road pav ing and stormwater issues (replacing aged drainage lines and pipes through out the city). Â“I think itÂ’s a good bud get,Â” Mayor Stephen Witt said following the meeting. Â“We worked hard to get it and we tried to do it by keeping taxes reasonable but then youÂ’ve got to be proactive to keeping the infrastructure in the com munity growing and I think what we came up with that weÂ’ve got a good budget for the community.Â” Witt said addressing the stormwater and road paving was a priority for the city. Â“I was glad to see it brought up at the political forums to make people aware these needs are out there and we try to do it within out budget ary constraints,Â” he said. Â“By being able to do it this year without raising taxes, I think the staff did a great job.Â” The city will hold its first 2015 fiscal budget hearing 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2 at its council meet ing to consider the tenta tive budget and resolution for the fire assessment. City workers headed for raise Council tentatively settles on a3% pay hike for all employees. fraudulently collecting money for the Wounded Warrior Project, by giving away T-shirts in return for donations. The recruiter said he thought Lab was a fake because he didnÂ’t have military identification, nor did he have the prop er form from the Army authorizing him to be in uniform collecting funds, according to the report. Lab had collected $333.94 in donations, including a $50 donation from Walmart, the report says. Jenkins spoke to Lab who told him he was stationed at Fort Des Moines, Iowa and was col lecting donations for the Wounded Warrior Project while on leave. When Jenkins asked for LabÂ’s military I.D., Lab told him he had his Georgia driverÂ’s license but did not have his mili tary I.D. because he had been in a car accident and accidentally left the I.D. in his damaged car. According to the arrest report, Jenkins then asked Lab if he had a phone number Jenkins could call to confirm he was collecting for the Wounded Warrior Project. Lab told him he had the phone number on his cell phone, which was dead. Jenkins then called Fort Des Moines, and Master Sergeant Johnny Roman said he could not comfirm that Lab was in the military. Jenkins then tried to contact Wounded Warriors but could not. Lab was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on $10,000 bond Wednesday at 11:35 a.m. He remained in jail as of press time.

Moemeka committed to play basketball at the University of Wyoming after a recent trip to meet head coach Larry Shyatt. Moemeka said that the trip made the decision a no-brainer and he was ready to announce his commitment. Â“I knew it was right when I went up there,Â” Moemeka said. Â“I met the coaching staff and players. Out of all the offers IÂ’ve had, there was no compari-son.Â” Shyatt, who was an assistant coach for Florida during back-to-back championships, made a pitch to the forward/center and Moemeka ate up the sale. Â“He told me my main role, since IÂ’m quick and jump pretty high and that we will be running the floor, based around speed and transition,Â” Moemeka said. ThatÂ’s a combination that fits MoemekaÂ’s athletic frame. Moemeka said although heÂ’s been given the oppor-tunity to move on to play in college, he couldnÂ’t have done it alone. Â“I want to thank my mom, Befaithul Coker, because I wouldnÂ’t have had any transportation without her,Â” he said. Â“She really helped me and gave me the drive to want to play basket-ball. My AAU coach, Tim Keeley, if it wasnÂ’t for him, I wouldnÂ’t have any offers. My mentor, coach Scott Golden, worked with me a lot at Columbia. My new coach at Oldsmar, Jordan Fair, helped me in July. He got me in shape and it was a wake-up call for the stuff I could do on the court.Â” Still, the star has another year of basketball left to play, but he wonÂ’t be playing for the Tigers. Moemeka said the move would better prepare him to make the move to the college level. Â“IÂ’ll be at Oldsmar Christian this year,Â” Moemeka said. Â“At Columbia, thereÂ’s not a level to push you. You go from high school to col-lege. They just want to win, but they donÂ’t give you the structure. ItÂ’s not the right program to win at the col-lege level.Â” Moemeka explained why he believed heÂ’d be better prepared at Oldsmar. Â“They specifically prepare you for the college level,Â” Moemeka said. Â“You have the dorm lifestyle. You wake up, workout in the morning, then after school you workout. You play all over the country. I like to work hard, and that was my main reason for wanting to go.Â” COURTESYWyoming coach Larry Shyatt and wife Pam Shyatt join forme r Columbia High player Andrew Moemeka on a recent vi sit. Allen spots next star linemanBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comA couple of years ago, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said he wasnÂ’t sure how long it would take for another offensive lineman like Laremy Tunsil to come along. It didnÂ’t take him long to find out the answer. Incoming freshman Doug Johnson is that guy accord-ing to Allen. Â“WeÂ’ve talked about the big thing this year being the offensive lineÂ’s develop-ment,Â” Allen said. Â“Doug Johnson is a guy that I havenÂ’t even talked about, because he had a torn meniscus and didnÂ’t prac-tice in the spring. HeÂ’s our next Laremy Tunsil. I can see it as a freshman and I mean that literally. HeÂ’s going to get in a game early and he needs to be pre-pared to execute.Â” Allen said one of the biggest concerns about Johnson will be his health heading into the season. He doesnÂ’t want to push the freshman too hard or too fast. Â“If he stays healthy, heÂ’s a starter right now,Â” Allen said. Â“We saw that in two or three series of inside run during the first practice.Â” ThereÂ’s also a matter of how many snaps Johnson can take right away during practice. Â“HeÂ’s got to get in condition, but again, he will be a starter,Â” Allen said. Â“HeÂ’s special. He just has to have the ability to get in condi-tion.Â” Allen said itÂ’s a blessing to have Johnson and other freshman able to come in and compete for a spot right away, especially on a team that competes in the state playoffs on a regular basis. Â“IÂ’ve said how important the middle school programs are to me,Â” he said. Â“Coach (Richard) Keen and LCMS (Lake City Middle School) do a good job. They work closely with us, so itÂ’s not a surprise when these kids come in and can compete at the varsity level.Â” Johnson isnÂ’t the only lineman to begin taking command during fall prac-tice. Allen also believes that JohnsonÂ’s presence has helped others fall into their comfort positions. Â“Matthew Lee has looked the part,Â” Allen said. Â“He struggled at tackle, but we moved him to guard and all of a sudden things are happening in the running game.Â” The coach made it clear that although these players are frontrunners now, he will not hesitate to put in a backup that he feels has outperformed a starter. Â“WeÂ’re evaluating everyone,Â” Allen said. Â“One good way to do it is just ask the players who they want to go to war with. The kids know who is going to help them win a game on Friday night.Â” And Allen feels there are two quarterbacks that will help him win games this season. Â“Jake (Thomas) is our starter and has been good, but Davin (Schuck) has solidified a chance to play over the summer,Â” Allen said. Â“HeÂ’s going to get on the field every Friday. HeÂ’s earned that right. We have veterans that can execute.Â” BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia High defensive coordinator Dennis Dotson call s out drills for defensive backs during practice on Tue sday.

DEAR ABBY: I have a friend who will help herself to anything in my fridge, pantry, etc. without asking. She also will eat most if not all food thatÂ’s meant to be shared, such as appetizers and snacks at a social gathering. Once she literally pol ished off an entire plate of appetizers before my guests arrived and I had nothing to feed them. After she finishes the food, she often says, Â“Oh, I was starving!Â” I find myself hiding food from her when she comes over, or delaying putting treats out for guests until later in the party. The most recent epi sode was when I was preparing food for my toddler. While it was cool ing on the counter, she helped herself to all of it. She told me afterward she had consumed it. So you see Â— nothing is safe, not even a childÂ’s meal. Abby, how can I tell her what sheÂ’s doing is wrong and rude? Â— STUMPED IN STUDIO CITY, CALIF. DEAR STUMPED: Your friend may be a compulsive eater, but thatÂ’s no excuse for what she has been doing. Tell her in plain English that you donÂ’t like it when she helps herself to food with out first asking, or hog ging it when it has been prepared for a party. Taking something that was meant for your toddler was over the top. Say that if sheÂ’s feeling Â“starvedÂ” when sheÂ’s headed for your house, she should have a snack to take the edge off before arriving. And if you see less of her because of your frankness, consider yourself lucky. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I and our toddler son were recently out to dinner. A woman walked past our table to the family next to us and gushed about how Â“beautifulÂ” the coupleÂ’s daughter was. Their child was the same age as our son, who is just as well-be haved. I found it hurtful that a stranger would compli ment one child and ignore the family seated at the next table. My husband disagrees. Am I wrong to be offended? Do you think this was rude? Â— FURIOUS IN FLORIDA DEAR FURIOUS: I agree with your husband. I doubt the woman delib erately meant to slight your son. All her attention was simply focused on the little girl. DEAR ABBY: I always take my shower before I go to bed. My friends take their showers in the morning. Which one is correct? I wouldnÂ’t want to go to sleep dirty. Â— GARY IN BROOKLYN DEAR GARY: The time of day one takes a shower is a matter of personal preference and lifestyle. If you are a mechanic or do heavy physical labor, shower ing before you go to bed makes sense. However, if your job requires working closely with the public or co-workers, then taking a shower in the morning before work is consider ate. DEAR ABBY: IÂ’m a 15-year-old girl who has two younger brothers. My parents are good people, but they can be extremely harsh and cruel. They curse us out and scream at us for petty things almost every day. I told my best friend about it and she said that it is emotional abuse. I dis agree. I have always been told that every parent yells at their kids. Maybe not every day, but regardless, everyone gets mad some times. I honestly didnÂ’t even think there was such a thing as emotional abuse. I donÂ’t know what to do. I have been suffering this almost my entire life. I didnÂ’t think that it was abuse. AM I being emotionally abused? I would appreciate your help. Â— TIRED OF THE TIRADES DEAR TIRED: The answer to your question is yes, your friend is correct. Because your parents have been doing this on a regular basis, it qualifies as verbal/emo tional abuse. Be glad you now recognize it, because their lack of control isnÂ’t normal. Their anger and frus tration may have nothing to do with you and your siblings. The problem with this kind of abuse -as opposed to physical abuse -is that although it is damaging, it is often not taken seriously. If there are family mem bers or close friends who can intervene, help your parents to see how dam aging their lack of control is and convince them to get help, you should con fide in them. It might be a good idea for you and your brothers to spend as much time with friends in healthier families as you can. This will get you out of the line of fire and enable you all to see what normal family interactions are like. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating a divorced man, Â“Chris,Â” for four years. He has a son who is 16. On the weekends Chris has his son, I become the Â“invisible girlfriend.Â” Sometimes the three of us will go to a movie or out to eat, but I am NEVER welcome to spend the night. Chris and I have talked about living together, but never in depth. Unless I bring it up, he never says anything about it. When ValentineÂ’s Day came around, Chris asked if we could celebrate it a few days late because he was scheduled to have his son that night. I was heart broken because even a Valentine dinner for the three of us was out. I am beginning to think there is no future with Chris. He seems fine just dating and seeing me every other weekend as someone to hang out with, but not to commit to. Suggestions? Â— DISMISSED IN DENVER DEAR DISMISSED: When you started dating Chris, his son was 12. It seems to me that what he has done is put his parenting responsibilities before anything else, and I respect that. If romance and mar riage are what youÂ’re looking for, I suggest you stop asking Chris about living together and ask instead about whether the two of you have a future. Chris has been treating you like a friend with ben efits for four years. The pattern is set and it isnÂ’t likely to change by itself. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make deci sions and follow through. Change will lead to posi tive opportunities. Speak up, but donÂ’t apply pres sure.
