This is the fourth political rally that the committee has held this season. Hines said many residents from across the county attend these rallies in order to learn where the candidates stand on the issues. Â“WeÂ’re expecting a large crowd with about 500 to 600 people to attend,Â” Hines said. Â“Normally, after the rally is over, candidates will stay after and talk to residents and answer any questions they might have.

By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.com Nine cars were involved in two separate chain reaction collisions on Monday while head ing to Fort White High School. One student was sent to Lake City Medical Center with minor inju ries, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol. Before the first day of school Monday, several students were attending a back-to-school senior breakfast at a private res idence on Herlong Street. The report said when the students left the residence and drove south toward FWHS on State Road 47, one car traveled back into the northbound lane and began to pass a long line of traffic. As the car traveled back into southbound lane, it abruptly stopped and made a left turn into the Fort White voting precinct parking lot, the report said. After the car veered into the parking lot, the second, third and fourth cars came to a stop while the fifth car was unable to slow resulting in the first chain reaction crash and minor injuries to the driver of the fourth car, Alejandro Vazquez. A second collision occurred north of the ini tial crash with four differ ent vehicles involved. The second, third and fourth cars had stopped due to other traffic. The report said the first car then rear-ended the second vehicle, which resulted in the second chain reaction collision. Troop B spokesperson Sgt. Tracy Hisler-Place said she was pleased that every student involved in the crash was wear ing their safety belt and there was only one minor injury. Three of the drivers involved in the crash have been cited for careless driving, according to the report.

By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.com A retired pastor at First Baptist Church of Lake City of 23 years, a husband of 45 years and an inspi ration of a lifetime, passed away from pancreatic cancer at the age 70 Monday morning. While family and friends gath ered to share stories of their beloved pastor, Reverend Robert Davis, they all shared one thing in common: They all said they could tell endless stories of joy and love he brought to others for days. Pat Davis, the wife of Reverend Davis, said they moved to Lake City in 1977 where he preached at First Baptist for 23 years. They moved to Jacksonville where he contin ued his ministries for 11 more years until he retired from the church in 2000 when he became ill with cancer. Â“He loved the Lord, he loved the church and he loved his peo ple,Â” Pat Davis said. Â“He liked to see peopleÂ’s lives turn around for the better and the church was our family.Â” While Reverend Davis was deeply involved in his ministries, his wife said he was also very active within the community. Reverend Davis was a retired veteran from the National Guard, coached baseball and basketball on local club teams, served on the church council and was a die-hard Gator fan. Â“He was truly a pillar to the community,Â” said Steven Khachigan, a long-time friend of Reverend Davis. He said Reverend Davis had watched him grow since he was a young child. Khachigan said he had known him from the time he was baptized at six years old, to the time when he performed his wedding a few months ago. Â“He was more than just a preacher Â— he was a pastor,Â” Khachigan said. Â“And I had the privilege of visiting him in hospice before he passed this morning,Â” he said Monday. Reverend Robert Bass is the current pastor at First Baptist and said Reverend DavisÂ’ care for people and the word of God was unmistakable. Reverend Bass said Reverend Davis held a ser vice at First Baptist a few months ago for the first time in years. He said peo ple came from as far away as Elba, Alabama to hear him preach. Â“The way he did his ministries was remarkable,Â” Reverend Bass said. Â“People have been impacted by his work through the Lord. He was a humble, loving man, and he touched everyone spiritually that came in contact with him.Â” Reverend Davis is preceded in death by his son Jeff Davis who was killed in the line of duty in 2002 while serving as a deputy for the Columbia County SheriffÂ’s Office. Friends, family remember late Reverend Robert Davis Davis, 70, passed on early Monday from pancreatic cancer.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.com City officials signed and approved more than $7 mil lion worth of grant paper work Monday night for improvements at Lake City Gateway Airport. During Monday nightÂ’s city council meeting, coun cil members unanimously voted in favor of accepting a $6,362,693 FAA grant, as well as a $706,966 Florida Department of Transportation grant for widening and extening a taxiway at the airport. Wendell Johnson, city manager, said itÂ’s his under standing that with the con tribution from FDOT, the city wonÂ’t have to pay any thing toward the project. Â“The portion of money from the DOT does include amounts of money the city would be released from,Â” he said. Â“It appears that weÂ’re not going to have to match the five percent for this par ticular grant.Â” City officials were facing an Aug. 25 deadline to have the documentation back to the appropriate offices to receive the grant funding. Â“The deadline was Aug. 25 so we had no choice but to Â‘walk in onÂ’ [the agenda] tonight (Monday) for action by the council,Â” Johnson said. The funds will be used for widening and extending the taxiway, as well as drain age improvements. Taxiway Â‘AÂ’ (Alpha) is slated for the rehabilitation work. The taxiway will be extended to 8,003 feet and the taxi wayÂ’s width will be extend ed 50-feet. The taxiway is currently 35 feet in width. A taxiway provides access for aircraft from an active runway to the terminal area or from the terminal area to the runway for departure or arrival. ItÂ’s a means of transi tioning from the active run way for arrival or departure. Johnson said he is uncer tain when the city will have the funds in hand to begin construction work. Â“As soon as they (FAA) get the grant back before Aug. 25, the design process will start,Â” he said. Â“Fasserro and Associates is our engineer of record for this project and they will move expeditiously on this and hopefully weÂ’ll start construction sometime during fiscal year 2015.Â” In other business, the council: Q Gave two vehicles the city declared as surplus to the humane society; Q Approved the purchase of a tract of land for $64,700; and Q Wrote off 855 non-col lectible utility accounts totaling $169,180.
C onvert to Islam, pay a reli-gious levy or die. Those are the conditions offered to Christians and other religious minorities in north-ern Iraq by members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Since the Islamic State (formerly called ISIL and ISIS), a Sunni extremist group that has overrun vast swaths of the republic and declared a new caliphate, began its march from Syria toward Baghdad several months ago, most of the estimated 200,000 Christians who remained in the country have taken the only other option available and fled. In so doing, they have left the ancient city of Mosul bereft of its ancient Christian communities for the first time in nearly two millen-nia. In the U.S., our debate over religious freedom is largely a mat-ter for litigation and punditry. We worry that inclusion of the words Â“under GodÂ” in our voluntary Pledge of Allegiance is oppressive to nonbelievers. We fight over what role closely held corporations like Hobby Lobby should be forced to play in providing specific types of contraception for employees. Those arguments are not insignificant and implicate legitimate matters of con-science. But not even in our darkest nightmares could we imagine the kind of barbarism that is reportedly occur-ring in Iraq Â— beheadings, kidnap-pings, rapes, crucifixions and other atrocities inflicted on men, women and children, unrestrained cruelty simply for adhering to oneÂ’s chosen faith. Yet until last week, when President Barack Obama belatedly ordered targeted airstrikes on Islamic State strongholds as well as humanitarian aid for religious and ethnic refugees, many of whom have fled to IraqÂ’s semiautonomous Kurdish region, the U.S. has been mostly silent on the nascent geno-cide that seeks to rid the world of one of its oldest Christian communi-ties. As USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers points out, it was nearly two months after Mosul fell to the Islamic State that the administra-tion finally condemned the assault on religious minorities. Â“An Iraqi Christian leader lamented to me that his people would have to con-vert to get the administrationÂ’s attention,Â” she wrote. Even Pope Francis, a paragon of peace and pacifism, appeared more hawkish than the president. A strongly worded statement from the Vatican implored Muslim leaders to upbraid the actions of the Islamic State: Â“All must be unanimous in condemning unequivocally these crimes and in denouncing the use of religion to justify them. If not, what credibility will religions, their fol-lowers and their leaders have? What credibility can the interreligious dialogue that we have patiently pur-sued over recent years have?Â” ItÂ’s fair to wonder: What credibility will the U.S. have if it fails to do the same? Arguments that the U.S. bears some responsibility for the dete-riorating situation are not without merit. The U.S. invasion and later withdrawal without an agreement on the status of forces arguably pre-cipitated the current disaster. They also make our obligation to inter-vene now even stronger. Still, the sequence of events that lead to the current situation is too complex to trace directly to the U.S. invasion. As one French politi-cian wisely noted, given the broad instability of the Middle East, Arab Springs Â— in all their hopeful ideal-ism Â— typically become Islamist Autumns. And the leaves are certainly falling. The imagery of centuries-old churches now shadowed by the black flag of the Islamic State and ancient Christian archaeological structures razed into dust defies imagination. And the scenes of Iraqi Christians who have inhabited these Iraqi cities since the first century fleeing their ancestral homelands by the thousands, likely never to return, are heartbreaking. But the long-term consequences of the Islamic StateÂ’s rise to power should be equal cause for alarm. Religious scholar Mark Movsesian understandably worries, Â“What ISIS has done in Mosul is a worrying hint of IslamismÂ’s possible future.Â” Other militant groups that espouse extreme views of Islam, from Hamas to al Qaeda, are watching not only to gauge the groupÂ’s suc-cess but also the worldÂ’s response to such unfettered destruction. Recounting his meeting with Pope Francis in March, Obama Â“reaffirmed (to the pontiff) that it is central to U.S. foreign policy that we protect the interests of religious minorities around the world.Â” Perhaps with his decision to authorize airstrikes and provide humanitarian assistance, the presi-dent will live up to his word. We can only pray.

Time to stop texting behind the wheel, if you havenÂ’t already, and stay on high alert when approaching a bus stop or crosswalk.

The state DMV has a catchy slogan this fall, Â“Every child is a human caution sign.Â” Message received, loud and clear. Sit up and take notice: SchoolÂ’s in Q Associated PressSpeckles takes exception: Chickens arenÂ’t slow learnersTODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1812, the USS Constitution defeated the British frigate HMS Guerriere off Nova Scotia during the War of 1812, earning the nickname Â“Old Ironsides.Â” In 1951, the owner of the St. Louis Browns, Bill Veeck, sent in 3-foot-7 Eddie Gaedel to pinch-hit in a game against Detroit. In his only major league at-bat, Gaedel walked on four pitches and was replaced at first base by a pinch-runner. In 1960, a tribunal in Moscow convicted American U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers of espionage. Although sentenced to 10 yearsÂ’ imprisonment, Powers was returned to the U.S. in 1962 as part of a prisoner swap. I tÂ’s not every day that a col-umnist gets a letter from a chicken. But I got one from Speckles, who identified herself as the Chicken in Charge at Holland House. The letter was written in response to a recent column lamenting that pet chickens are discriminated against in many parts of this coun-try. In some places, for example, local governments allow dogs to accompany their owners to restau-rants with outdoor dining areas. But they ignore people with pet chick-ens. That is discrimination. Speckles agrees. But she took exception to one claim in the col-umn. (Speckles, by the way, does not know the touch system Â— she hunts and pecks when she types Â— so she dictated her letter to Lea and Herman Thorbecke, who also live at Holland House, the ThorbeckesÂ’ and their petsÂ’ home in Habersham County, Ga.) Â“I Â… am a free-roaming and totally independent (politically and religiously) chicken and only take offense with one remark in your Â‘Chickens AriseÂ’ editorial. Â… You need to be taught that we are not slow learners,Â” Speckles dictated. Â“Not nearly as slow as some people I am acquainted with, and to my point and for your edification, I am sending you a copy of my recently published Â‘Memoirs of a Barnyard Chicken.Â’ Â“I recommend that you read it carefully (aloud and with the young ones in your family as your audi-ence) and take forever note of the fact that we are more than just drumsticks and wings.Â” Yes, Speckles wrote her memoirs, a childrenÂ’s book thatÂ’s not just for children. The book teaches life les-sons to adults, too. One common story thread that weaves through the book: You need to respect ani-mals. Speckles lives legally in the yard at Holland House, along with Chester the Poodle, Kush the Cat, and Rika and Debbie, two other chickens under her wing. A small, decorative windmill, not to mention the name of the place, hints that one of the secretaries Â— that would be Herman Â— was born in Holland. Lea was born in Israel. Fortunately, Speckles said, her secretaries do not eat chicken. Â“You canÂ’t eat chickens when you have pet chickens,Â” Herman said. But they do eat lots of eggs, which Speckles and her friends produce graciously for the secretaries and their neighbors. Writing obviously is a favorite pastime at Holland House. The Thorbeckes also are writers. They have written two childrenÂ’s books: Â“Do I Look Like Breakfast?Â” and Â“Where in the World Is Wipple?Â” Herman published two other books: Â“How to Fail as a SlumlordÂ” and Â“So Long Europe, Hello South Africa.Â” Thorbecke lived in South Africa for 11 years. In fact, the Thorbeckes have lived in several places in the world, but not always with pet chickens. Now, Speckles, a Southern girl, and her friends are grateful for a nice home behind a fence. And if another book idea strikes, Speckles is ready to dictate. If the book happens to lay an egg, well, thatÂ’s something to cackle over, too.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, AUGUST 19, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 indicate accidental drowning as the cause of death. Foul play is not suspected, authorities said. Leo was last seen at his familyÂ’s home Wednesday morning around 2 a.m. The police were called as soon as his mother noticed he was missing around 4 a.m., Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokesperson Samantha Andrews told the Lake City Reporter Thursday. Authorities believe that Leo had climbed out of the window of his house. Along with the Live Oak Police Department, more than 12 different law enforcement agen cies took part in the search for Leo. Â“My appreciation to all the law enforcement personnel and civilian volunteers who assisted in the search efforts for Leo,Â” Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams said in a prepared statement. Â“While we are saddened by the outcome of this case, we are thankful for the resources provided to our community during this tragedy.Â” dents in those grades at Richardson and Lake City middle schools. Adam Miller, executive director of the state office of independent education and parental choice, said during the conference call that there were 78 catego ries of learning gains that were used in assessing Shining Star. Students at the different schools were placed into groups based on their scores from the 2012-13 school year, he said. For example, the students during the past school year who received a Level One score on the FCAT reading test were compared to other students who also received a Level One reading score during the previous school year. Shining StarÂ’s learning gains were comparable to those of nearby district schools in just 14 of the 78 categories, which equates to 18 percent. Shining Star Principal Tony Buzzella said he thinks the school shouldÂ’ve been given another chance anyway. Â“Overall, I believe we shouldÂ’ve been granted the waiver,Â” he said. Buzzella said the law doesnÂ’t say that all of a charter schoolÂ’s learning gains need to be compara ble to or better than those of the schools itÂ’s com pared to. Â“I know our reading gains meet the letter of the law, and I believe our math gains meet the spirit of the law,Â” Buzzella said. He also said it bothered him that the state board of education only gave Shining Star 10 minutes to speak during the confer ence call. Looking ahead, Huddleston said heÂ’s unsure when the school will close within the 90-day closure period. HeÂ’s also not sure yet how the dis trict will go about placing Shining Star students into new schools, he said. Huddleston said he called Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart multiple times Monday for guidance on both of those things but hasnÂ’t been able to reach her. He said once he speaks with her, heÂ’ll have a better idea on how the district will place students into other schools. Miller said under state law, Shining Star has 60 days from when the Columbia County Board of Education issues the 90-day closure to request a hearing on the schoolÂ’s clo sure. However, Miller said the hearing probably wonÂ’t change Shining StarÂ’s fate. The hearing is intended to give schools that are being closed by a school district due process and to ensure that the district is being fair in closing the charter school. But since Shining StarÂ’s closure was mandat ed by state law, its closure is fair, and thus the hear ing wonÂ’t change anything, Miller said. During the conference call, he stated that the boardÂ’s decision had to be made solely based on how the schoolÂ’s learning gains match up against those of the three nearby elementa ry schools and two nearby middle schools DOE used for comparison. Stephen Schwab, a Shining Star sixthand sev enth-grade math and sci ence teacher, spoke during the conference call during the schoolÂ’s 10-minute alloted comment time. He spoke highly of the school and talked about how it provides a necessary arts education, which students canÂ’t receive elsewhere in North Central Florida. Â“We provide our stu dents with an education infused with a strong arts focus. We teach mandatory classes in band, orchestra, arts, dance, drama and the graphic arts. We have tal ented and passionate fine arts teachers,Â” he said. Â“If we close, many of the stu dents here will likely not return to the regular public school system. Another arts startup may come along, but what a waste of time and money to start the process all over and why punish the schoolÂ’s current students, parents and teachers by pulling the only arts school in this area?Â” Schwab also said that many of the schoolÂ’s chil dren struggle academically, which is why the schoolÂ’s FCAT scores havenÂ’t been good. Â“We have a large portion of academically challenged children, and we lack some key resources for our poor, rural student population,Â” he said. Schwab then began talking about the gains the school did make and how theyÂ’re a step in the right direction. He specifically cited the charter schoolÂ’s reading gains and how hard Shining Star worked for those. Â“The teachers are hop ing that you grant the waiver. They ask you to please focus on our reading gains. Look at the trajecto ry. ItÂ’s moving along in a good and strong direction. Please allow the school the opportunity to mend a few key errors. We need to pursue Title One funding that our student population is so entitled (to). Let us implement math remedia tion like we implemented with proved success with reading remediation last year,Â” he said. Buzzella also spoke high ly of Shining StarÂ’s FCAT reading gains and said the school focused on reading because itÂ’s the first step to a good education. Â“We have made tremen dous academic improve ments. Reading was our key interventions strategy last year, and as you can see, our reading gains are comparable to the com parison schools,Â” he said during the conference call. Â“Students must learn to read before they can read to learn. We hired a full-time cracker jack reading coach last year to imple ment our reading inter vention plan. As a result, we achieved our objective of our emerging readers. Our reading gains of the lowest 25 percentile are greater than every school in Columbia County at 84 percent. Clearly, our reading goals are better than or comparable to the schools.Â” Columbia County District Charter School Director Keith Hatcher was also on the conference call but made no comment during the districtÂ’s given comment time. In June, Buzzella told the Lake City Reporter Shining StarÂ’s governing board was considering tak ing the school private if it was shut down by the state. On Monday, after the con ference call, Buzzellla said heÂ’s still considering doing that, but heÂ’s also exploring other options to keep the school open. Â“IÂ’m going to listen to what everybody has to say and do whatÂ’s best for the students,Â” he said. Â“What matters is about the kids.Â” JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterShining Star Academy of the Arts student Ora Daar, 12, shows seventhgrade teacher Steven Schwab where her ancestors are from during an ice-breaker during the first day of class on Mond ay. SHININGContinued From 1A WALKERContinued From 1A where prescription note pads from the medical center were reportedly found. Administrators at the medical center said the two names being used for prescriptions were not patients there. Craig Strickland of the LCPD said both fraudu lent prescriptions were written for oxycodone. Amanda Brett, who has been an employee with the medical center for eight years, said she saw Grossman print two prescriptions from the computer then place them in the back pock ets of his pants. Brett stated in the report that it is against LCMC policy for a doc tor to print a prescription for someone who is not a current patient there. She also said once the prescription is printed, it is immediately placed on the patientsÂ’ care chart. According to the report, Grossman was read his rights, placed under arrest and booked into the Columbia County Jail on $10,000 bond. GROSSMANContinued From 1A criminal cyber attack by a foreign-based intrud er,Â” a spokesperson for Shands Lake Shore said in a prepared statement. Â“The transferred infor mation did not include any medical information or credit card informa tion, but it did include names, addresses, birth dates, telephone num bers and social security numbers.Â” Community Health Systems said it believes the attack came from a group in China that used sophisticated malware and technology to get the information. Community Health has since removed the malware from its sys tem and finalized Â“other remediation effortsÂ” to prevent future attacks. Â“Many American com panies and organizations have been victimized by foreign-based cyber intrusions,Â” the Shands spokesperson said. Â“It is up to the Federal Government to create a national cyber defense that can prevent this type of criminal invasion from happening in the future.Â” The information that was taken came from patients who were referred to or received care from doctors tied to the company over the past five years. Community Health Systems Inc. is notifying patients affected by the attack and offering them identity theft protection services. The attack follows other high-profile data security problems that have hit retailers like the e-commerce site eBay and Target Corp. Last year, hackers stole from Target about 40 million debit and credit card numbers and personal information for 70 mil lion people. Community Health Systems, which is based in Franklin, Tennessee, said the attack may have happened in April and June.

Eighth Judicial Circuit State Attorney William Â“BillÂ” P. Cervone was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to prosecute the case. Assistant state attorney Brian Kramer is handling the case on his behalf. Ivery was not in court on Monday and her attor ney, Jimmy Hunt, said her appearance had been waived. Â“We expect hopefully to resolve (the case) between now and Sept. 29,Â” Hunt said as he left the court room. Hunt said Jefferson and Ivery are both comtemplat ing plea offers from the state. He declined to reveal details of the plea offer and Kramer, who was not in court, could not be reached for comment. Hunt said Jefferson is being represented by attor ney Rod Smith, who could not be reached for com ment late Monday. Jefferson faces 24 felo ny and two misdemeanor violations of state election laws and two counts of intimidation. Ivery is charged with six felony and two misdemean or counts of election law violations and two counts of intimidation. Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials said the allegations leading to their arrests stem from the election of Jefferson to the District 10 city council seat on Aug. 24, 2010. The two allegedly asked voters to sign absentee ballots that were already completed, fraudulently obtained absentee ballots and attempted to influence or deceive people into sign ing absentee ballots. Eugene Jefferson was re-elected after defeat ing Adee Farmer, Tammy Perry Harris and Clarence Tucker Jr. with 69.7 per cent of the vote in 2010. According to a 2010 report by FDLE, Â“of the 377 ballots cast in favor of Eugene Jefferson to win the recent primary election, between 236 to 255 of those ballots were absentee ballots that [Supervisor of Elections Liz] HorneÂ’s staff can attri bute to [Betty] JeffersonÂ’s efforts.Â” Ivery and Jefferson sur rendered to authorities April 9, 2013. Both pleaded not guilty at their arraign ments May 6, 2013.

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, AUGUST 19, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 New Patient Exam and Necessary X-raysDO150, DO330First-time patient Reg. $217 $29 SAVINGS OF $188 Expires August 31, 2014 ASPEN DENTAL GROUP By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com The weather on Monday was gloomy, but it was a bright day for Columbia County schools as children returned for the new year. A total of 8,611 students attended county schools on the first day of the new year, with almost two thousand of those as Columbia High School Tigers. Fort White High School currently has 532 students, and Columbia County has 1,947 middle schoolers. Supt. Terry Huddleston said those numbers may get higher as more students enroll this week. Overall, the schools had a great first day back with only a few minor bumps, he said. One school bus broke down Monday morning but was quickly repaired, and there was a fender bender at Fort White High, Huddleston said. Â“IÂ’m told everyone is OK,Â” he said.The rain Monday afternoon also presented some chal lenges, but the schools handled it well, Huddleston said. Lake City Middle School Principal Sonya KnightJudkins said her school had a great first day despite the rain. As expected, some student schedules did have glitches and need to be fixed, but all schedule changes should be done by the end of today, she said. Students didnÂ’t seem to get too lost trying to find their new classes, which is a big feat, especially for sixth grad ers, Knight-Judkins said. Lunch also went smoothly, with all lunches finishing on time. Â“ThatÂ’s a big deal for the first day of school,Â” she said.It almost seemed like Monday was the third or fourth day of the school year because things went so well, Knight-Judkins said. Â“I feel real good about the day,Â” she said. Â“It went amaz ingly well.Â” New Pinemount Elementary School Principal Cherie Hill said things went well at her school as well. Â“I think everyone was excited to be back at school,Â” she said. Â“It was just a quiet, smooth day.Â” Huddleston said he didnÂ’t get a chance to visit as many schools as he wanted to because he was dealing with issues related to Shining Star Academy of the Arts, which was effectively closed down by the state yesterday after failing in its appeal over receiving F grades for the past two years. Huddleston said he plans to visit the middle and high schools today, but he did get a chance to visit some of the countyÂ’s elementary schools Monday. Â“ItÂ’s just always a lot of fun to see kindergarteners come into school for the first time,Â” he said. SchoolÂ’s back in session here Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterAmy Bass walks her daughter, Kailee, 6, to her first-grade class on the first day of school at Westside Elementary School on Monday. Â‘IÂ’m happy, but itÂ’s bittersweet,Â’ Bass said. Â‘SheÂ’s growing up. Next thing IÂ’ll turn around and sheÂ’ll be in high school. But we are excited about the day.Â’ Supt. Huddleston said overall the first day went smoothly. By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.com A local woman stood in Christ Central Ministries with her four children on Saturday, crying. Thank you, she said. Thank you for this, she told Theresa Hysell, Christ CentralÂ’s missions pastor, at Operation Backpack. The womanÂ’s husband had recently left her, and she is struggling financial ly. But with Operation Backpack, things started to look up. All four of her children got free school supplies, and each one got a free physical exam there. Two of her kids needed the physicals to start school Monday, and the other two needed them to play school sports. Â“She said this was a Godsend,Â” Hysell said. At Christ CentralÂ’s 16th annual Operation Backpack, parents who canÂ’t afford to get their children ready for school on their own came to the church with their kids to get a hand up. All students who came got free school supplies, and the first 300 there got a free Jansport backpack with a lifetime warranty, as long as they hadnÂ’t gotten one in years past at the event. Children could also get free hair cuts, dental care, vitamins and physical exams. Pastor Lonnie Johns said the event was start ed because students who donÂ’t have new school sup plies when they start the year tend not to do as well and to feel worse about themselves. Â“We want everybody to have a good attitude,Â” he said. The event is also similar to what the church does on its mission trips, Johns said. About 2,000 people attended this yearÂ’s Operation Backpack, and roughly 1,200 of those were students who received school supplies. Many people attend Operation Backpack year after year, but for Stacy Patterson, Saturday marked her first time there, and she was so glad she decided to go with her 6-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son. Â“As a single mom, it helps out a lot,Â” she said. Â“IÂ’m thankful for it.Â” Operation Backpack was a Â‘GodsendÂ’ for local families SARAH LOFTUS/ Lake City ReporterJasmine Kieng sits with her 1-year-old daughter, Niyah Rice, and 4 -year-old son Joshua Brown at Operation Backpack Saturday. Joshua got one of the 300 free Jansport backpacks filled wi th school supplies Christ Central was giving away. Here, he waits for a free haircut. About 2,000 people attended Operation Backpack, Leilani Dagley, Christ CentralÂ’s office manager and facilities director, said. About 1,200 students receive free supplies. Operation Backpack volunteers Marty Munoz (from left) Shirley Mun oz, Chloe Potter and Christen Potter gather pens, pencils, markers and rulers to pass out to the children who come for free school supplies.

RUSSO and BRANDON FINLEYAssociated PressThe Associated Press preseason Top 25 is out. Florida State is back on top and local fans couldnÂ’t be happier. With the upcoming Lake City Seminole Club 2014 Kickoff Gathering at 6 p.m. at The Country Club at Lake City, thereÂ’s plenty to be excited about. Â“We start off with Dallas to Dallas in mind,Â” President of the Lake City Seminole Club Kyle Keen said. Â“We ended on top last year and I guess we need to start on top this year.Â” Norbie Ronsonet, a member of the Seminole Club, wasnÂ’t quite as optimistic about Florida StateÂ’s chance to repeat. Â“My personal feelings is to be optimistic, but IÂ’m being realistic,Â” Ronsonet said. Â“IÂ’d be surprised if they went all the way. I feel they may have a sophomore slump. ItÂ’s always exciting to see how it plays out and I think weÂ’ll have a big crowd Thursday.Â” Take a look at how the ballots break down, and find out what to watch for when the college football season begins this month:Â‘Noles nation dominationFinish No. 1. Start No. 1. Even Bobby BowdenÂ’s best Florida State teams never did that. Jimbo FisherÂ’s Seminoles will. Jameis Winston and the defending national champions are preseason No. 1 for the sixth time. In two of the previous five seasons Florida State started No. 1, the Â‘Noles went on to finish No. 1, including a wire-to-wire title in 1999. But they never did start the following year top-ranked. OK, the 2000 Seminoles were preseason No. 2, and after Bowden, the Hall of Fame coach whom Fisher replaced, won his first national championship in 1993, Florida State started 1995 ranked No. 3. FisherÂ’s Seminoles have a long way to go to compare to Florida StateÂ’s unprec-edented run of national championship contention, a string of 14 straight seasons during which the Â‘Noles fin-ished the season ranked in the top five of the AP rank-ings. Still, make no mistake: Florida State 2.0 is built to last. Â“WeÂ’re the second-winningest team in the coun-try the last four years, the winningest team the last two years and have had the most NFL players,Â” Fisher said. Â“WeÂ’ve recruited well, too. Recruited a lot of great young players weÂ’ve been able to mentor and develop as we go, so weÂ’re very comfortable with the guys who are replacing the guys that left.Â” The Seminoles were an overwhelming choice as No. 1, receiving 57 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel. No. 2 Alabama, No. 2 Oregon and No. 4 Oklahoma got one first-place vote each. Ohio State is No. 5 and Auburn, which lost the final BCS national championship game to the Seminoles 34-31, is No. 6. Last season was a good reminder that preseason rankings can look pretty silly by the end of the sea-son. Four teams that fin-ished in final top 10 last season (No. 2 Auburn, No. 3 Michigan State, No. 5 Missouri and No. 10 UCF) were unranked to start the season. Throw in No. 13 Baylor, No. 20 Arizona State and No. 23 Duke, and seven of the teams that either won or played for the champion-ship in the six conferences with BCS automatic-quali-fying status began 2013 unranked. The Bowl Championship Series is gone now, replaced by the College Football Playoff. The top four teams will be placed into nation-al semifinals to be played on New YearÂ’s Day and advance to the champion-ship game about a week and half later. Expect surprises, though coming up with a scenario in which Florida State is not part of college footballÂ’s first final four is difficult. Winston will make a run at his second Heisman behind an offensive line that returns four start-ers. ThereÂ’s turnover at receiver and running back but still plenty left of fourand five-star talent left behind. Same goes on defense, where sophomore safety Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Mario Edwards step into leadership roles. Florida State is the hunted again. Fisher wants them to still act like hunters. Â“We better have that attitude. ItÂ’s got to be your attitude every year,Â” said Fisher, starting his fifth sea-son as Florida State coach. Â“We call it an attitude of domination. You can never be satisfied.Â” Florida State starts its season with a rebuilding Oklahoma State team at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which, coinciden-tally, is also the site of the first College Football Playoff national champion-ship game.Conference callDo not think for a second that the end of the Southeastern ConferenceÂ’s streak of national champi-onships means the SEC is slipping.

Champions meet in kickoff classic FridayBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Â— Like Fort White High, Dixie County High won a district championship in football in 2013. The District 7-1A defending champs bring Fort White to Cross City for a kickoff classic game at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Dixie County advanced to the third round of the play-offs last year, opening with wins over Wildwood High (37-0) and Union County High (30-20). Trenton High, which went on to win the state championship, nipped the Bears 17-14 in the semi-final. Dixie CountyÂ’s head coach is Brent Wilkerson, who is entering his 16th season. Last yearÂ’s trip to the playoffs was the ninth for the Bears under Wilkerson. When Fort White was starting out, the Indians and Bears met eight times from 2001-08. Dixie County won the first four games and five of the first six. After Demetric Jackson took over at Fort White, the Indians won 58-22 and 44-27, and Dixie County disappeared from the schedule. Â“They had our number for a few years,Â” Jackson said. Â“We did a few things that opened it up against Fort White travels to Dixie County for showdown. INDIANS continued on 3B

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, AUGUST 19, 2014 3B3BSPORTS INDIANS: Face tough DevilsÂ’ squad Continued From Page 1Bthem.Â” The teams finally met again last year in the kickoff classic at Arrowhead Stadium, with the Indians winning 29-6. Eight points for Fort White were produced by the junior varsity in the fourth quarter. Fort WhiteÂ’s Tavaris Williams broke a 57-yard touchdown run on the first play and finished with 124 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Andrew Baker threw a touchdown pass to Melton Sanders. Those guys are gone for Fort White, and Dixie County returns its front eight on defense. Leading the way is defensive tackles Trey Simmons, backed up by linebackers James Horsley, Branden Land and James Bowers. The Bears graduated playmakers in Duke Dawson and Shaquille Mitchem, who combined for four catches and 80 yards in last yearÂ’s classic. Quarterback Aaron Thomas returns. Thomas was 4-of-6 passing in the first half last year, but missed on all six throws after intermission. Running back Julian Robinson is back and brings more than 900 yards rushing from last season. Tyler Corbin returns on the offensive line. Bowers scored Dixie CountyÂ’s touchdown last year. Two-in-a-row night at NFSSpecial to the ReporterSaturday night racing at North Florida Speedway featured a two-in-a-row theme in four of the six rac-ing divisions, as fans were treated to some beautiful weather. The Sportsman were first up and Jamie Dayhaw grabbed an early lead which he would not surren-der. Kevin Davis pressured Dayhaw for the lead, but Dayhaw turned back any challenges for his second straight victory. Davis held on for second with Tyler Sistrunk third. Southern States Midget Series was next with last weekÂ’s winner, Dillon Buhr, looking forward to adding his name to the two-in-a-row club. Unfortunately for Buhr, Trey Pearson had other ideas and put his Lucas Oil racing entry in the winnerÂ’s circle. Darrin Davis took third, giving the Lucas Oil gang two of the top three spots. The Florida Mini Sprint Association was in atten-dance and the winged war-riors were ready for battle. Robbie Hoffman wasted no time grabbing the top spot and he opened up a com-fortable lead. Not even a couple of caution flags for minor incidents could slow down Hoffman in his march to victory. Robbie Smith was second with Sheldon Kinser third. The Limited Modifieds provided the fans with some of the best racing action of the season. Three-wide racing and multiple lead changes kept fans on the edge of their seats. When the checkered flag waved, Shane Taylor would be celebrating victory for the second consecutive week. Roy Crain and David Markham, who both spent time leading the race, fin-ished second and third, respectively. The ladies of the Powder Puff Division were next. Nelda King used a smooth and consistent route around the speedway to claim top honors. Taylor Ostendorf was second and Shannelle Creech third. The 2014 season in the Pure Stock Division has been one for the ages for Darrel Roberts. Wins and top finishes have been piling up all season and Saturday would be no different. Roberts moved from his eighth starting spot to the lead and, once there, he never look back. Brian Mullins had another strong run and a second-place fin-ish with Ethan Butts follow-ing home in third. Wayne Risner entered the evening looking for his second consecutive Box Stocks win, and he overcame some heat race difficulties to get the job done. Brent Zimmerman claimed second and Taylor Ostendorf took third-place honors. Racing continues Saturday along with box racing for the kids. All the youngsters need is a box they can fit into and they will compete for trophies and prizes during intermis-sion.

COURTESYSouthern State Midget Series winner Trey Pearson visits the winnerÂ’s circle at North Florida Speedway on Saturda y. Madden ratings guru has attention of NFL playersBy ARNIE STAPLETON,Associated PressDENVER Â— Donny Moore can be the most reviled man in NFL locker rooms. HeÂ’s not a coach, a referee or a drug tester. He has never played or coached a game. Still, NFL players Â— and millions of fans Â— canÂ’t wait to see what he has to say. Moore is the Â“ratings czarÂ” for Â“Madden NFL,Â” the man responsible for making sure the popular video gameÂ’s virtual avatars accurately reflect their real-life counterparts. Moore uses all sorts of metrics and measurements to come up with ratings. Then, he tweaks the num-bers weekly after watching all the games and ponder-ing feedback from fans and even the players them-selves. Sometimes aging stars first recognize their careers are on the downslopes when the new Madden game arrives in August and their ratings have slipped. TheyÂ’ll let Moore know they disagree, often using Twitter or even sending him a YouTube video. Â“ItÂ’s usually more tonguein-cheek versus truly get-ting upset,Â” Moore said by phone from Orlando, Florida, where he works for EA Sports. Only one time, Moore said, he felt he truly angered a player. Moore wonÂ’t name the player, but when an EA Sports film crew went to scan the face of the Arizona Cardinals player, he asked them to deliver an Â“F-bomb-filledÂ” message to Moore. Save for the select few superstars like Richard Sherman or Peyton Manning who earn 99s and 98s on MooreÂ’s 1-to-100 scale, nobody ever seems to be happy with their ranking. Â“My ratings havenÂ’t been very good. So, based off of that, I guess IÂ’m not a fan,Â” Bills running back Fred Jackson said with laugh. Â“But he has a hard job to do. ThereÂ’s, I donÂ’t know, 1,800 of us? And heÂ’s not going to make all 1,800 of us happy.Â” Moore, 36, uses a 1-to100 rating scale for dozens of categories, including strength, catching, jump-ing, speed, awareness and toughness. Â“Everybody thinks theyÂ’re a 100,Â” said Bills wide receiver Mike Williams. Â“No matter what you get, youÂ’re not going to like it.Â” Moore dives through data, comparing 40-yard dash times for speed, 10-yard split times to deter-mine acceleration and 20yard shuttles for agility. Â“WeÂ’re trying base our real numbers in the real world,Â” he said. To fine-tune his assessments, he goes to the video. After all, Jerry Rice ran the 40-yard dash in a relatively pokey 4.71 seconds, but youÂ’d never know that by the way he played. Â“So, really, for a receiver, for example, weÂ’re trying to capture game speed with pads on, not how fast you run in a straight line on a short lawn in a T-shirt,Â” Moore said. Sometimes video game players complain a player is too good. Or the game designers complain that Moore has guys rated so highly in certain categories that it throws the game off-kilter. Among the guys he underestimated were Washington running back Alfred Morris and Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, both of whom started a sea-son with mid-60s ratings and finished in the high 80s. It works the other way, too. Ray Rice started last season at 95 and finished at 82. With the new Madden game coming out next week, Moore has been busy getting feedback from players hearing about their ratings. Giants punter Steve Weatherford was upset over his 45 strength rat-ing. Strength might not be important for a punter, but Weatherford isnÂ’t a typical kicker. Â“HeÂ’s on the cover of some sort of fitness maga-zine,Â” Moore said. Â“He looks like he should be in UFC.Â”
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, AUGUST 19, 2014 Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 DEAR ABBY: You printed a letter from Â“Self-Conscious in GeorgiaÂ” (May 15), a young man who is insecure about the scar from his heart surgery. I have had three surgeries for congeni tal defects, my first at 2 years old. Because many womenÂ’s fashions expose the upper chest, I applied anti-scar products, which greatly reduced the size and color of my scars. Swimwear lines have sun-blocking swim shirts that are quick-drying and comfortable. At the beach, Â“Self-ConsciousÂ” could wear a beach-themed T-shirt and say he is reducing his sun exposure, which is a good idea these days. As to anyone protesting his not going shirtless, true friends accept your choices, no matter the circumstances. They wonÂ’t call you out for not follow ing the herd. And another thing: The young man might benefit from a cardiac support group to lessen his feelings of isolation or inadequacy. He suffered trauma that led to and created that scar. Now he deserves to be happy on his own terms. Â— WAS THERE ONCE AND IÂ’M STILL HERE DEAR STILL HERE: Thank you for your com ments. Readers were quick to offer messages of sup port to Â“Self-ConsciousÂ”: DEAR ABBY: I am a registered nurse. That scar can be faded by using pure cocoa butter (in stick form, not lotion). It can be pur chased at the pharmacy. I would also like to let him know that in this part of the country, survivors are known as members of the Â“Zipper Club.Â” When I see patients with this scar, I know they have had open heart surgery. It alerts me to a whole realm of infor mation before anything is said and directs how care is given in case of emer gency. Please let Â“Self-ConsciousÂ” know his scar is not an eyesore, but a GIFT OF LIFE. Â— PROUD R.N. IN WEST VIRGINIA DEAR ABBY: Â“SelfConsciousÂ” might benefit from getting a tattoo. A recent TV program aired a segment showing women with mastectomies receiv ing amazing designs to cover or beautify their scars. With a good tattoo artist, these pieces can be life-altering and the art work stunning. Â— JANET IN ANNAPOLIS, MD. DEAR ABBY: I broke my ankle a few years ago. A wonderful surgeon and a fantastic physical thera pist got me walking again, but I was left with several large, raised scars. I put wheat germ oil (full of vitamin E) on them in the morning and evening, and they are barely visible now. Â— ONLINE READER IN ISRAEL DEAR ABBY: For many years I dated a young man with a similar scar, and it was something I found endearing. To me, it was no different than freckles or a birthmark. It was part of what made him unique. We all have our stories and history. His scar is an opening to share his. -ROSE IN NORTHAMPTON, MASS. DEAR ABBY: I have a young friend who had open-heart surgery when she was a high school senior. On the night of her prom, she wore a strap less dress with her Â“red badge of courageÂ” on full display. Â— SANDRA IN ROCHESTER, N.H. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may feel like socializing or going out and having fun, but before doing so, get your responsibilities out of the way.

DonÂ’t limit what you can do due to someoneÂ’s lack of adven ture. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Check out whatever everyone around you is doing and saying. You will be misrepresented if you let someone speak for you. Put pressure on anyone trying to take over or control the outcome of a situation that will affect your position or reputation. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Call in favors.
