By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.comFlorida residents can dedicate funds to help restore Floridas springs, rivers, farm lands and other natural resources, by voting for the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative, Amendment 1, in the Nov. 4 general election. Amendment 1 would dedicate 33 percent of net revenues from the existing documentary stamp tax on real estate transactions and financial documents to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund for 20 years. Taxes would not be raised and no additional funds would be required. According to the ballot summary, the trust fund will acquire and improve conservation easements, wildlife management areas, wetlands, forests, fish and wildlife habitats, beaches and shores, recreational trails and parks, urban open space, rural landscapes, working farms and ranches, historical and geological sites, land protecting water and drinking water resources and lands in the Everglades Agricultural Areas and the Everglades Protection Area. The Financial Impact Estimating Conference said within the first year the amendment is passed, the state revenue is estimated to be $648 million and will grow to $1.268 billion by the twentieth year. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, backs the measure. For so long tax dollars from North Florida have flowed south to pay for Everglades restoration, she said. With the passage of Amendment 1, all of Florida will have a vested interest in the restoration of our springs and rivers here in North Florida. This amendment should assure that no legislative A vote for conservationAmendment 1 would fund major restoration efforts.ON THE BALLOT: AMENDMENT 1 AMENDMENT continued on 3A COURTESYAs of Wednesday, CVS has been renamed CVS Health and has stopped selling tobacco in an effort to expand its health care center. TrussellBy SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comThe North Central Florida Tea Party has sent superintendents and school board members in Columbia and Suwannee counties a letter requesting the districts opt out of state testing and reject Common Core. NCFTP said it believes the new state testing is harmful to students, parents, teachers and the overall education system. In the letter, the organization urged the districts to follow the lead of Lee County in southwestern Florida, which voted to opt out of Floridas new standardized testing. However, on Tuesday, after NCFTP sent its letter, the Lee County school board rescinded its previous vote and in a 3-2 vote decided to resume testing.

Megan Stolen, a research scientist at the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute, says 18 dead bottlenose dolphins were found in the area in August. Florida Today reports that 70 dolphins typically die in the lagoon region annually. So far this year, 67 dolphins have died. Past surveys have found about that 660 bottlenose dolphins spend their lives almost exclusively in the lagoon area. Testing is pending, but scientists say dolphins in the lagoon are showing signs of morbillivirus, such as skin and oral lesions. Those infected can appear skinny, swim erratically and make sounds as if they are coughing.Police: Homeless man fatally stabs biker VERO BEACH A graphic designer on a biking trip from Maryland to Miami was stabbed to death by a homeless man outside a Florida McDonalds while he spoke on the phone with his girlfriend, authorities said. Kevin Adorno, 28, of Unionville, Connecticut, stumbled into the restaurant Monday after the attack, witnesses told police. He had been talking on the cellphone with his girlfriend, to whom he planned to propose at the end of the trip, Treasure Coast Newspapers reported. Adornos girlfriend told investigators she didnt hear any sounds from a confrontation. But she did hear the phone drop, then silence, and eventually sirens in the background. Patrons told police they saw the assailant run across the street to a Burger King. Police found Rene Herrera Cruz, 59, there and arrested him. He is charged with first-degree murder. It was not immediately clear whether Cruz, whom police say is homeless, has an attorney. Cruz told officers he thought Adorno was directing people by cellphone to attack him, according to police. He also said he thought someone inside the McDonalds was using a laptop to order an attack on him. Police Chief David Currey said Cruz had called 911 from a spot near the McDonalds on Sunday night, saying he was afraid someone would try to hurt him. When Adorno stumbled into the restaurant, someone started administering aid while another called 911. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead a short time later. He had stab wounds to his chest and arm. Currey said investigators learned that Adorno began cycling from Maryland in August. Currey said officers found an engagement ring in Adornos backpack.Top officials jump into race for FSU president TALLAHASSEE Professors, deans and top officials at several universities are now vying to become the next president at Florida State University. FSU attracted 39 candidates for its top job by a Tuesday deadline, despite a topsy-turvy search that has come under scrutiny because of the front-runner status of State Sen. John Thrasher. Among those jumping into the contest were FSU interim president Garnett Stokes, University of South Carolina provost Michael Amiridis and Michael Martin, chancellor of the Colorado State University System. Deans and professors from several universities have also applied for the position that became vacant when Eric Barron left to take the top spot at Penn State University. They are joining a field that includes Thrasher, who is a former House speaker and current chairman of the re-election campaign of Gov. Rick Scott. Supreme Court Justice Ricky Polston and a state legislator from Tallahassee have also applied for the position. Thrasher is an FSU alumnus but he lacks academic credentials. Supporters of Thrasher have contended he would be able to help the university seek additional financial support from the Florida Legislature.

The LCFD be collecting MDA contributions Saturday, Sept. 6 through Friday, Sept. 12. “We’re going to try to hit it all day Saturday and Sunday and during the week, try to collect during (afternoon) rush hour when people are getting off work,” said Trey Beauchamp, Lake City Fire Department MDA coordinator. There will be 20 LCFD firefighters, including both department chiefs, collecting funds for MDA this year. The two major spots where the firefighters will be collecting this year are in front of Walmart and at the intersection of Bascom Norris Drive and U.S. Highway 90. The fundraising goal for this year’s collection drive is $9,260. “We came to that goal by raising what we made last year by $60 per firefighter, because this year is the 60th year of MDA,” Beauchamp said. “Every year we send the local kids to camp in Dowling Park. That’s where our money goes — to send kids to camp.” The Lake City Fire Department has participated in MDA collection drives for more than three decades. “Raising funds for MDA has always been a tradition for firefighters around the country and here in Lake City it’s really no different,” Beauchamp said. “The kids get to interact with other kids with the same defi ciency that they have and they form lifelong bonds (at camp) and are inseparable.” LCFD seeking to help fill the boot whim will interfere with the continuous battle to fund springs and rivers restoration.” The other member of Lake City’s legislative delegation, Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, said although he supports Amendment 1, past expe riences with state-spon sored land purchases makes him hesitant about the subject. “We’ll wait and see what the voters say, and I’ll be one of the ones that goes with it,” he said. “But my question is, what do you do when they don’t have the money coming through?” The trust fund was created by the Florida Legislature in 1963, designed to fund the Outdoor Recreation and Conservation Program, which primarily purchased land for parks and recre ation areas, according to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The source of the trust fund was a tax on outdoor clothing and equipment, including bathing suits. This generated an esti mated $1.5 million a year. Five years later, the Legislature abandoned the tax and funded the Land Acquisition Trust Fund through the sale of rec reation bonds that were paid for by a documenta ry stamp tax. This caused the funding to switch from a tax on potential users of conservation and rec reation lands to taxes on real estate transactions and financial documents. The initiative, if passed by voters, is an attempt to provide a new revenue for the trust fund. Constitutional amend ments in Florida require 60 percent approval by voters for passage.

F lorida’s leaders would be poorly cast in a Hollywood blockbuster called “Guardians of the Waterways.” Many of the state’s rivers and springs have been in a steady decline for years from pollution and excessive groundwater pump-ing. Yet lawmakers failed again this year to pass legislation to protect and conserve water, even though there was a bipartisan plan to do both. Now one North Florida member of Congress, with the support of the state’s agriculture commissioner, is pushing a bill that would curtail federal authority to protect state waterways — presumably because Florida has been doing such a swell job. “Florida can better regulate its waters than bureaucrats in D.C.,” said Panama City Republican Steve Southerland, sponsor of the gran-diosely titled Waters of the United States Regulatory Overreach Protection Act. The bill would block a proposed Environmental Protection Agency rule intended to bring much-needed clarity to which streams and wetlands are subject to protection under the federal Clean Water Act. Instead, the bill would let states decide which waterways should be protected. But Florida hasn’t earned the right to be trusted with more con-trol. Even with springs and rivers in decline, Gov. Rick Scott and law-makers have weakened water pro-tections. They’ve slashed funding for the regional districts charged with protecting and conserving water. Wetlands are a vital link in Florida’s water supply. They store and filter water, and replenish aquifers, streams, rivers and lakes. They provide flood protection and habitat for wildlife. They are criti-cal to the life cycles of many fish and birds. Federal authority to protect wetlands has been in question since a pair of U.S. Supreme Court deci-sions in 2001 and 2006. Members of Congress and groups represent-ing farmers and other affected industries asked the EPA for clari-fication. Seeking to rally public opposition to the EPA rule, Southerland, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and other critics have mischaracterized the measure as a federal power grab. In fact, the rule wouldn’t expand federal protection beyond waterways historically cov-ered under the Clean Water Act. Nevertheless, the agricultural industry, including Big Sugar, and other business groups have lined up behind Southerland’s bill. Reducing federal water protections would reduce their costs — but at what cost to the environment and the public? Southerland and Putnam are among the Republican officehold-ers in Florida whose credibility on water issues has been compromised since reports this month of their taking secret hunting trips to Texas organized and at least partially bankrolled by U.S. Sugar. The sugar industry regularly leads the fight in Tallahassee against state water regulations. Congress needs to reject Southerland’s bill. Leaders from Florida, of all states, shouldn’t stand in the way of a federal effort to rein-force protection for water.

BY EMAIL: O n today’s front page appears the first in a series of stories detailing the three constitutional amend-ments that will appear on the Nov. 4 ballot. Today we take on Amendment 1, Water and Land Conservation. In the language of the official ballot summary, this measure is designed to “acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beach-es and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites, by dedicating 33 percent of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years.” In other words, to preserve, protect and defend Florida wilderness and water using pre-existing funds. Also on the ballot: medical marijuana and a measure expanding the governor’s power to fill vacant judgeships. We will take up these issues in later articles. People don’t always take the time to study constitutional amendments closely and end up either leaving that part of their ballot blank or just winging it on Election Day. That’s less likely to happen this year.For one thing, there are only three such measures on the ballot. That’s cer-tainly a manageable number. According to Ballotpedia, the average in Florida each election cycle since 1988 is eight. In addition, one of the measures — Amendment 2, legalizing medical marijuana — has already long since gotten everyone’s attention. Most folks have already made up their minds on that one, if the polls are to be believed. All three are important, though, and merit careful consideration on your part. We’ll give you the facts.The rest is up to you.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 letter say regardless of what hap pened in Lee County, they’re still against the new state testing and standards and still want Columbia and Suwannee counties to opt out. The letter says Common Core stan dards have caused schools to adopt “texts and materials inappropriate for school children.” It also states that “these initiatives are now widely known to be detri mental to the student, detrimental to the teacher, costly to the taxpayer and fraught with excessive federal involvement.” However, Columbia and Suwannee school officials say they won’t be fol lowing NCFTP’s recommendation to opt out of state testing. A loss of fundingSuwannee County school board member Julie Ulmer cited two rea sons why Florida counties can’t opt out. If counties opt out of state test ing, they lose their state funding, and in counties such as Columbia and Suwannee where most of school funding comes from the state, opting out would leave the counties bank rupt. “It would cause us to just close the doors,” Columbia County Supt. Terry Huddleston said of opting out. “We can’t operate without state funding,” Columbia County school board member Steve Nelson said. However, vice chairwoman of NCFTP Sharon Higgins said she doesn’t think the state would actually withhold funding. “I think of that as empty threats,” she said. Withholding money would hurt everyone and would close schools, so she doesn’t think the state would do that, at least not long term. Higgins said it frustrates her that the state would even threaten to with holding funding. “If parents go to a school board meeting to ask about (the district) opting out, they’re told there’s noth ing more the board can do,” she said. “It concerns me that many school board people are taking that attitude. My next logical question is, ‘Why do we pay school board members then?’”No high school diplomasThe other reason Ulmer said that counties can’t opt out is that districts can’t issue valid high school diplo mas without administering state test ing. Florida law says students must pass state testing in order to earn a high school diploma. If districts didn’t give state tests, they wouldn’t be able to award valid diplomas, which would put students and com munities at severe disadvantages, she said. “I understand completely where they’re (NCFTP) coming from in their frustration with standardized testing, but if students do not com plete end-of-course exams (and other state tests), they can’t graduate,” Ulmer said. Ulmer said that while she doesn’t agree with the heavy emphasis the state of Florida puts on standardized testing and how quickly and aggres sively the state is putting the new standards into effect, opting out is simply not feasible. Ulmer said two to three years ago before the state adopted Common Core, the Suwannee County school board voted to opt out of Common Core, but once the state opted in, the district had no choice but to follow the state standards. “Walking away from testing is not an option,” she said. Huddleston said he agreed 100 percent with Ulmer’s reasons.‘Aggressive implementation’The new Florida Standards, which are a combination of Common Core standards and the old Sunshine State Standards used in FCAT test ing, are being put into effect for this school year, which is too quick, Ulmer said. “I do not agree with the aggressive implementation,” she said. That’s the same concern Nelson has. “I’m not against the standards,” he said. “We just need time.” Nelson said he thinks the state should give school districts between three and five years to implement the new standards and testing. That would give the teachers and students time to adapt to them, he said. Ulmer said the expectation is that test scores will go down across the state this year because of how quick ly the new tests have been put in place. But unlike Nelson, whose sole con cern is how fast the new tests are being implemented, Ulmer is also concerned by Florida’s overall testing culture. “I think the state has gotten over zealous when it comes to testing,” she said. ‘FCAT on steroids’NCFTP president John Lacquey agreed, saying there are just way too many tests for Florida students, and the new state tests are just the latest. Ulmer said the FCAT was written with college-bound students in mind, so students who weren’t planning on attending college were often left feeling stupid when they didn’t pass it. The new state tests are “what I call the FCAT on steroids,” she said, so there will be even more students who struggle with it. Ulmer said she’s not saying she’s against standardized testing, rather she believes state testing needs to be an aspect of education instead of the focus and should not hold all stu dents up to college prep curriculum because not all students want to go to college. Her suggested solution to that problem is to use a test already in existence such as the SAT or ACT, which have been approved by the national College Board. The College Board has already determined what scores students need for college, so the state could determine what score students need to be vocational ly-ready and set that as the standard, she said. However, Ulmer also said not all of Common Core is bad. “Some pieces of Common Core are not bad,” she said. “It emphasizes factual texts and analytical thinking, which are good things.” But members of NCFTP say they have issues with some of the texts and learning methods that are a part of Common Core. ‘Worrisome’ materialHiggins said some of the books found on Common Core aligned high school reading lists include books with explicit, graphic pas sages. “There were books on that list that were bordering, if not already, pornography,” she said. “That’s wor risome to me. There is plenty of other material.” Nelson said he has heard that some of the books that are Common Core aligned are graphic in nature, but he also said each school district can pick which books it wants to use and he hasn’t seen any books like that in Columbia County. Lane Watkins, another NCFTP board member, also voiced con cerns about Common Core stan dards, particularly the way arith metic is taught to elementary school students. When doing a subtraction problem, students are taught to break the numbers into their “number bonds” and then to subtract and add to find the answer. The objective with that is to get students more involved in the math and to teach them more sophisti cated problem solving techniques. Watkins’ issue with it, he said, is that students who don’t use those methods are getting lower grades even though they’re coming up with the right answer. “Don’t grade them down if they don’t take some torturous path to obtain the answer,” he said. Watkins went on to say that these standards have not been proven to be successful and questioned how any one can know if the new standards will actually be effective. “These kids are outstanding,” he said. “It has to be about the kids.”Edging everyone outWatkins, along with Higgins and Lacquey, expressed concerns about how Common Core and Florida’s new standards limit the involvement of parents in their children’s educa tion. “The parents are getting edged out,” Watkins said. “They don’t have a say in their children’s education anymore.” He said that Common Core doesn’t just edge parents out, it also edges local school boards out. Higgins said every county in the country doesn’t need the federal gov ernment telling them what and how to teach. “I think that our students are best served when our school board and parents are making the decisions,” she said. State officials often remind Common Core and state standards opponents that the state isn’t imple menting curriculum, only standards, so it’s not taking away the authority of local school boards to issue cur riculum. But Higgins said that regardless of what they say, the standards are dictating the curriculum. “Once you have standards, you have curriculum that follows,” she said. School boards have to imple ment curriculum that follows the standards, otherwise, the students won’t pass the state tests, Higgins said. Lacquey said the federal govern ment just shouldn’t have the authori ty to implement Common Core. He said it can’t handle everything else it does, so why it should be allowed to issue learning standards. “You do your job first, and then you can see if you can do something else,” Lacquey said. COMMON COREContinued From 1A created a new business name to reflect its broad er health care commit ment and expertise. CVS officials said the company will see an esti mated $2 billion in annual lost sales as a result of banning tobacco prod ucts, but the decision will direct the company in big ger sales from its health-care business. “CVS Health has been the poster child for a positive healthy change,” said Lauren Moses Pinchouck, tobacco pre vention specialist for the Columbia County Health Department. She said the Columbia County Health Department has a part nership with CVS Health, and is delighted this was able to happen sooner than they predicted. “We had known it was going to happen in October, but the fact they pushed the date back was exciting,” she said. “CVS Health is such a great example, and I hope to see other companies fol low suit.” CVS has 900 walk-in clinics, a pharmacy that benefits operations cov ering 65 million patients and partnerships with multiple local health-care systems nationwide. CVS’s front-of-store sales from last month have dropped by 0.4 per cent in the second quar ter, which was an indi cation of lower tobacco sales as the products were gradually removed from stores over the past few months. The com pany also reported sec ond-quarter profits rose to 11 percent, particu larly with its pharmacy business. Terry G. Trussell, 70, faces 10 counts of “crim inal actions under law or through use of simulat ed legal process,” a third degree felony. He faces up to five years in prison on each count. Trussell, previously fore man of the Dixie County grand jury, last month con vened his own “People’s Grand Jury Under Common Law,” which pur ported to formally charge Siegmeister with “corrupt ing” the proceedings of the original panel. A “true bill” drafted by the group accused Siegmeister of obstruction of justice and tampering with a grand jury. A common law grand jury, as opposed to one convened by state officials, is a group of self-ap point ed individuals who meet and establish the panel by majority vote. Legal experts say an “indictment” returned by such a group carries no legal weight and is meaningless in court. In a document filed Aug. 15 with the Dixie County Clerk of Court, Trussell says Siegmeister imped ed the panel’s probe into possible corruption in the county. Among other things, he claims Siegmeister refused him funds to investigate allegations he brought before the grand jury; denied him information about grand jury foremen in other counties; and “[i]nfluenced and prompt ed the jurors by rolling his eyes, making hand ges tures, thereby undermin ing the office of the fore man, and independence of the grand jury from the other branches of govern ment.” That same day, the Dixie County common law grand jury also formally accused the superinten dent of schools and school board there of treason, insurrection, subversive activities and other crimes for their plans to imple ment state-sanctioned Common Core teaching standards. Also accused of brib ery by Trussell for direct or indirect support of Common Core were: Gov. Rick Scott, former Gov. Charlie Crist, Sec. of Education Pam Stewart, Bill and Melinda Gates, UNESCO and textbook publisher Pearson. Siegmeister said he has asked the governor to appoint a special prosecu tor in the case. “At best I’m a key wit ness,” Siegmeister said Wednesday. “There is no way I or my staff can pros ecute this.” Siegmeister declined further comment citing the ongoing criminal proceed ings. Trussell was arrested at his home at 3:08 p.m. Tuesday. He was released from custody Wednesday afternoon on $5,000 bail, court records show. An arrest affidavit indi cates the case has been under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement since at least Aug. 20. CVSContinued From 1A TRUSSELLContinued From 1A From staff reports The SWAT team was called in to subdue a man accused of beating his pregnant girl friend after he barricaded himself in an apartment with a handgun Monday night, according to an LCPD news release. Another woman was arrested for hiding him from police, the release said. Ronald Franklin Jones, 35, Lake City, faces charges of aggravated bat tery on a pregnant woman, LCPD said. Shelby Renee Lee, 26, 850 Symphony loop #204, faces charges of resisting an officer. A resident of Windsong Apartments called police at 9:24 p.m. to report being beaten by her boyfriend, LCPD said. The woman, who was not iden tified, was four months pregnant and said Jones was the father. She told police Jones "punched her several times in the face and kicked her in the back of the head after she fell," according to the release. Jones reportedly fled and at 10:40 p.m. police were notified he was hiding in Apt. 204 with a handgun he had retrieved from his vehicle. Lee and her five-year-old son were inside. After Jones failed to respond, the SWAT team entered the apartment and took Jones into custody. After interviewing Lee, she was arrested for helping Jones hide from police, the release said. Jones was booked into the county jail on $50,000 bond. Lee was arrested on $5,000 bond but has since been released. The incident was reported to the Department of Children and Families, and Lee's son was turned over to the boy's father, the release said.

Muschamp said on the weekly Southeastern Conference coaches call that “it’s not just about suspending players for games.” “There are a lot of things that go into discipline,” Muschamp said. “It’s about altering and changing behavior, which we’ve done here. I think our discipline speaks for itself and how we’ve handled our football team, OK? So it’s not just about missing games, If it was just about suspen-sions, you never have an issue, right? So at the end of the day it’s more than that, and there are a lot of things that go into those situations, a lot more than people know.” Muschamp suspended receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive tackles Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick for last week’s season open-er against Idaho. But the game was called after the opening kickoff, which was delayed nearly three hours because of lightning and then eventually halted for good because of unsafe playing conditions. Muschamp said Monday that Robinson, Cummings and Bostwick will play Saturday against Eastern Michigan. He could have kept their suspensions in place against Eastern Michigan. Florida’s game against Idaho was official-ly ruled a no contest on Wednesday. “It’s very frustrating for me as a coach, or any coach, to have someone being critical and you don’t even have all the information,” Muschamp said. “So at the end of the day, I make the decisions in this program, I handle the discipline in this program, and it’s been handled very well.” Muschamp has seemingly cleaned up a program that had plenty of issues when he took over in 2010.


Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: My son’s out-of-town wedding is coming up. My mother will attend and be traveling with me. I am single, and my mom is also single. She’s planning on sharing a room with me. Abby, my mom has a severe snoring problem, and I’m a very light sleep er. I cannot sleep with a snorer! I don’t want to ruin my time at my son’s wed ding, and she’s upset about the added expense of another room, which nei ther of us can really afford, but I don’t know what else to do. — MOTHER OF THE GROOM DEAR MOTHER OF THE GROOM: The sepa rate room may be a luxury you can’t “really afford,” but incurring the expense may be worth it so you won’t sleepwalk through your son’s wedding. I’m not recommending ear plugs because, while they may dull the racket, they won’t completely eliminate the sound of severe snor ing. P.S. If your mother’s physician doesn’t know about her snoring, it should be discussed so the doctor can make sure it isn’t a symptom of a seri ous health problem. DEAR ABBY: My son has two children who are in temporary foster care, and has visitation with the ex’s stepsister, who got the right to grant visitation. Recently we had a birth day party for them. All the grandparents, aunts and uncles were invited. It was a kiddie party, of course, and I jumped into the pool and played with the chil dren. We had a ball! A few weeks later, I heard the stepsister’s mother had said I had “no business” playing in the pool with the kids. I was taken aback. Isn’t that what grandmas are for? I love playing with the little ones. Was I wrong for not “act ing my age”? Did I make a fool of myself? The cus tody fight is ongoing and I don’t want to do anything that would jeopardize my son winning custody. — WORRIED IN NEW YORK DEAR WORRIED: I don’t think you did anything inappropriate. I suspect the stepsister’s mother was jealous that she wasn’t the person in the pool, which is why she didn’t speak up during the party and you had to hear it weeks later secondhand. DEAR ABBY: On July 31 you printed my question about throwing a 25th anniversary party for my parents. I want to let you know that instead of taking on an expensive dinner that I can’t afford right now, I’m collaborat ing with a cousin to have a chef come into their home to prepare a nice meal for them and the people who participated in their wed ding. I felt it was a much more personal and cost-ef fective way to give them the nice anniversary they deserve. Thank you for your advice! — SON OF SILVERS DEAR S.O.S.: I’m delighted you wrote to share your solution. The idea is terrific. I am sure your parents will be thrilled and other readers will appreciate your ingenuity. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take any opportunity you get to enjoy time spent with friends, peers or young sters. Don’t let an emo tional situation cause a rift between you and someone you love. A change of plans shouldn’t disrupt your day. Adaptability will lead to an interesting adventure. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Strive to improve your standard of living. Refuse to let a situation you face with a partner spin out of control. Bide your time, choose your words wisely and keep the peace. Don’t share personal information or intentions. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Reassess your financial situation and make conservative deci sions based on the best way to build personal secu rity. Someone who asks for help will have something to offer in return. You can turn this gesture of friend liness into a long-term alli ance. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Listen, but don’t retaliate. Not every one will see things the same way you do. Make changes based on what works for you and allow others the same privilege. Protect against illness or injury. Work alongside your partner regarding domestic changes. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Raise issues that you feel strong about, but be prepared to face opposition. Changes and decisions can be made that will satisfy everyone if you are willing to make con cessions. Don’t spend on a gimmick that promises the impossible. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get organized and you will be able to tie up loose ends. Make plans to do something that will make you feel relaxed and satisfied with your life. Your discipline and stami na will help you reach your goals. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t get down; get moving. You will face opposition at home where emotional matters are con cerned. Get out and take part in an event or activity that will take your mind off personal matters. A romantic gesture will ease tension and stress. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t feel pressured to do things in a big or pronounced manner. Keep things simple, mod erate and under control. You’ll come up with unique solutions that will give you greater financial autonomy if you observe what the experts do. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may have money to burn, but don’t make the mistake of being overly generous or open about what you have. Make personal changes that will add to your com fort and keep you in the running for professional advancement. Love is high lighted. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emotions will creep up on you, leav ing you in a vulnerable position. Say little and you will avoid ending up in a discussion that will com promise a relationship you have with a friend, relative or someone in your com munity. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Express your feelings and discuss your plans with someone you feel comfortable with. A trusted partner can help you make a decision that will improve your assets and financial future. Physical changes you make will invite compli ments. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get in touch with people you have worked with in the past, and you will discover an opportunity to pick up where you left off. A deal can be negotiated if you are willing to put the past behind you. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Plans to share a room hit a snag over mom’s snoring Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

Indians look to keep streak By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — After the opening game of the 2013 season was canceled, Fort White High’s football team roared out of the gate against Newberry High in week two. Playing at home, the Indians sprinted out to a 16-0 lead less than eight minutes into the game. The halftime score was 23-6. Fort White scored on its first play of the second half and cruised to a 36-18 win. It was the sixth straight win over the Panthers for Fort White, which holds a 7-4 record in the series. Fort White’s current backfield of Cameron White and Blair Chapman both had significant carries and scored touchdowns in the game. Chapman ran eight times for 36 yards and White had five carries for 31 yards. Chapman’s touchdown came on a traditional run, while White’s score was an opportunistic defensive play. E.J. Garrison picked up a fumble and returned it 40 yards, but was hit and coughed up the ball. White was on the spot to gather it in and run the final 12 yards for a touchdown. Chapman also recovered a fumble and Elijah Bryant had an interception, as the Indians forced six turn-overs. Newberry coach Keppa Sarduy is in his second sea-son, following a 4-5 season in 2013 (1-3 in District 7-1A). Last year the Panthers came into the matchup with a win over Santa Fe High, but this year the Raiders won their traditional open-ing game at home, 26-9. Jason Franklin rushed for 85 yards on 13 car-ries against Santa Fe and scored on a 46-yard run. Quarterback Nick Oelrich was 3 of 11 for 43 yards. Tanner Fowler had one catch for 27 yards. Newberry hosts Fort White at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Fort White holds 7-4 edge over NewberryJASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White High’s Tyler Reed nearly picks off a pass in tended for Hamilton County High’s Ethan Land. When you’re thrown into that role, it’s not always easy. Jake came in level headed and operated the offense effectively. He came in and was able to manage. He came in with a very good job of keep-ing his composure to help us to victory. I thought that was as big of a factor as Lonnie (Underwood) having the success he had.” Of course, each week they’re handing off to Underwood and that has made their jobs a little eas-ier. Underwood found the end zone four times against Gainesville and scored the go-ahead two-point conver-sion in overtime for the 44-43 win. “It was a special performance,” Allen said. “We didn’t have a lot of the night blocked like it should have been, but he made some special plays. He didn’t have any second thoughts about anyone hav-ing the ball in his hand. I definitely wanted it in his hand.” One thing that has also helped the comeback per-formances is the halftime adjustments. The Tigers have allowed just one touchdown in the second half of each game. “Again, it goes back to being able to have coordi-nators that can make adjust-ments,” Allen said. “When you see a team come out and we’re giving up points early on and we look like a different group in the second half, it’s because the halftime adjustments have been key. We go into halftime it’s about busi-ness. It’s not about rah-rah. When our defense is giving up points, it’s about mental breakdowns. As a coordinator, you have to find out what the problem is. Dennis (Dotson) has done a good job of that.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Jesse Nolan (12) makes a tackle agai nst Gainesville HIgh on Aug. 28. Questions after opening week for Florida StateBy RALPH RUSSOAssociated PressREMAIN CALM! ALL IS WELL! Overrated or over reactions? Maybe it’s a bit of the former, but probably far more of the latter after the first weekend of the col-lege football season, which is notorious for setting off way-too-early alarms. No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Alabama held their spots in the AP Top 25 released on Tuesday, though both looked to be less than jug-gernauts in close victories against heavy underdogs on Saturday. Florida State struggled to run the ball behind an offen-sive line with four return-ing starters and had a diffi-cult time getting Oklahoma State off the field on third down. Still, Jameis Winston was mostly excellent and the Seminoles outgained the Cowboys 476-364. If any-thing, the 37-31 victory for Florida State in North Texas might tell us more about how good Oklahoma State is than it does about the Seminoles’ weaknesses. Coach Jimbo Fisher said some inconsistent practic-es led to an inconsistent performance that he hopes helps to get his players’ attention. “And until you lose a game some time like that and you get that bitter taste and understand, and I hope we learned that lesson now,” he said Tuesday. Alabama got into a backand-forth game against West Virginia before beating the Mountaineers 33-23 in Atlanta. The problems came mostly on the defensive side for Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide, which had problems with pass coverage. But let’s take a step back: Alabama outgained West Virginia 538-393, and allowed a kickoff return for a touchdown. That trouble-some Tide defense allowed one offensive touchdown — though dropped passes by WVU aided Alabama’s cause. So, yes, it was definitely not the best efforts by two of the nation’s top teams, but clearly no reason to panic. Openers, especially those away from home, can be tricky as players adjust to new roles. The Crimson Tide and Seminoles should be credit-ed for at least playing teams that have the ability to pose a threat, but the two lost support from AP voters. Florida State went from 57 first-place vote to 46. Alabama dropped 44 total points. Ohio State also took on a challenging opener, and had a tough time shaking free from Navy in Baltimore. The Midshipmen’s triple-option offense and overall intensity is often vexing, even to the most talented opponent. Breaking in a new quarterback made the opener all the more chal-lenging for the Buckeyes. J.T. Barrett had one terrible interception but went 12 for 15 for 226 yards.
