Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterRecent Lake City resident Jim Deupree, 78, who spent years raising funds for the American Cancer Society, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer four months ago. He walks around Lake DeSoto everyday for an hour in the morning. ‘It’s the time of the day that I feel closer to God,’ he said. ‘Most of the prayers are “Thank You” prayers.’ By SARAH LOFTUSsloftus@lakecityreporter.comJim Deupree isn’t giving up yet. Twenty years ago, while in state prison for trying to rob a Pinellas County bank, Deupree decided to start running proxy races from 5Ks to marathons in prison to raise money for the American Cancer Society. He began running against cancer after his friend, pen pal and running mentor George Sheehan died of prostate cancer. He started writing to race directors, explaining his project and asking if he could proxy run the races, and asking Fortune 500 company CEOs to sponsor him. While Deupree claims to have raised at least $400,000 since he began the project, he hasn’t done so without questions being raised as well. Prison officials and many in the national media doubted whether he was actually running the races in full or if he was simply running some laps on the prison yard track. In 2005, the Florida Department of Corrections shut his project down by ordering him to stop running. Now that Deupree is out of prison, he thought he would be able to actually run races, but two months before he was released in August, he got news that said otherwise. Stage four lung cancer. He said his doctor, Vernon Montoya, isn’t sure yet if he’ll be able to beat it. Running freeFormer ‘prison runner’ now faces a new foe: Stage four lung cancer. Deupree said that he had half of his left lung removedt and is awaiting the start of chemotherapy. Despite his age, he stays hopeful, and said that he is going on 39.

Erik Dustin Mendell, 23, of Lake City, was driving a 2012 Nissan Altima eastbound on CR 240 with passengers Danielle Lynn Moore, 24, of Fort White, Robert Daniel Trimble, 21, of Live Oak and Cory Scott Moore, 22, of Fort White, when FHP reports that another vehicle ran through an intersection without stopping and collided with Mendell’s vehicle. Passengers in Mendell’s vehicle suffered minor injuries and were transported to the hospital, except for Mendell who died at the scene, the release said. Charles Job Yaney, 45, of Lake City, was driving a 1999 Dodge Ram pickup traveling south on SW Walter Avenue when at around 10:50 p.m., he went through the CR 240 intersection without stopping, according to FHP. Mendell’s car hit the right side of Yaney’s, causing both vehicles to leave the roadway and overturn, the release said. Mendell, who was not wearing a seat belt according to FHP, was partially ejected during the accident and Yaney’s vehicle struck a fence. Yaney fled the scene on foot and was found early Tuesday morning as FHP was assisted by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department and K-9 handlers from the COURTESYErik Mendell is seen with his fiance Danielle Moore in a photo Moore posted to Facebook after Mendell died in a crash Monday night.

The final portion of the Bascom Norris connector road opened less than a month ago, allowing more traffic access to Northwest Lake Jeffery Road. A three-vehicle crash occurred at the intersection Monday afternoon when a driver ran the stop sign on Bascom Norris. Kevin Kirby, Columbia County operations manager, said he and county officials previously discussed adding a traffic signal at the intersection and the signal will be included as part of a road rehabilitation project within the next four months. “During construction of the Bascom Norris road that we just completed, it was determined by the Board of County Commissioners that we needed to install a traffic signal at the intersection,” he said. “Upon further review, it was deemed that the initial construction of that traffic signal would be damaged as the result of the reconstruction of County Road 250.” He said he and officials decided then that the traffic signal would be installed with the construction project.

Rolling Stones’ Bobby Keys dead at 70 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Bobby Keys, a saxophonist and lifelong rock ‘n’ roller who played on recordings by Buddy Holly and John Lennon and performed one of the all-time blow out solos on the Rolling Stones’ “Brown Sugar,” has died at his home in Franklin, Tennessee. He was 70 years old. Michael Webb, who played keyboard with Keys, said Keys died Tuesday after a lengthy illness. Keys had been on tour with the Stones earlier this year before his health prevented him from performing. “The Rolling Stones are devastated by the loss of their very dear friend and legendary saxophone player, Bobby Keys,” the band said in a statement. “Bobby made a unique musical contribution to the band since the 1960s. He will be greatly missed.” Known for his heavy jowls and raw, raucous style, the Lubbock, Texas, native was born on the same day as Keith Richards — Dec. 18, 1943 — and the Stones guitarist would often cite Keys as a soul mate and favorite musician. Besides “Brown Sugar,” Keys also played memora ble solos on such Stones favorites as the 7-minute jam “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and the coun try-styled “Sweet Virginia.” Cosby resigns from Temple Univ. board PHILADELPHIA — Bill Cosby stepped down as a trustee of his beloved Temple University follow ing renewed accusations that he had drugged and sexually assaulted a string of women over many years.

Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman DeAnna Greenlaw said the victims, a man and a woman, were shot multiple times in a car outside an insurance office in Hallandale Beach. The FBI later said the man had died. Their identities were not immediately released. The FBI identified the suspect as 35-year-old Gregory B. “Pop” Moore and said he should be considered armed and dangerous. According to an FBI timeline, after the shooting, Moore unsuccessfully tried to carjack two vehicles and finally succeed ed in commandeering a silver Mercedes-Benz. Moore drove that car north on Interstate 95, crashing near downtown Fort Lauderdale and running away on foot, officials said. At least four schools were locked down for several hours and traffic was snarled on the busy interstate while authorities searched the area. The crime spree began shortly before 8 a.m. in Sunrise, where a woman and her son in a Suzuki were ordered to drive to I-95, where they were released unharmed. Authorities say Moore then drove that vehicle south to Dania Beach and com mitted a second carjacking of a Chevrolet Silverado, followed by the shooting and the third carjacking. The woman, who was in critical condi tion at a local hospital, was believed by police to be the suspect’s ex-girlfriend. Judge suspends city’s homeless feeding ban FORT LAUDERDALE — A judge has suspended enforcement of a South Florida city’s law that restricts the public feeding of homeless people for 30 days and ordered mediation on the issue. The ordinance is aimed at keeping people from feeding the homeless in parks and other public places in Fort Lauderdale. Nationwide, people have objected to the ordinance and on Monday, hackers with the Anonymous group shut down the city Internet sites temporarily in response. The decision Tuesday by Broward Circuit Judge Thomas Lynch came in a challenge to the ordinance by 90-year-old homeless advocate Arnold Abbott, who has been arrested after defying it repeatedly. Lynch wants the dispute resolved through mediation or trial by the end of the year. City attorneys indicated they may appeal Lynch’s ruling. More lawsuits are challenging whether the ordinance is con stitutional.

By MICHAEL J. MISHAKAssociated Press CORAL GABLES — Nearing a decision on a presidential run in 2016, Jeb Bush on Tuesday reaf firmed his support for the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba and pushed for a for eign policy that he said could repair the nation’s credibility after Barack Obama’s presidency. “Our allies don’t trust us and our enemies don’t fear us. There is no situa tion worse for stability and peace than that,” the for mer Florida governor told the annual luncheon of the U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC. “The iron rule of superpower deterrent is ‘Mean it when you say it.’ And it has been broken by this president.” As an example, Bush cited Obama’s decision not to follow through on his statements that there would be consequences for Syria if that country used chemical weapons. To date, the U.S. has not taken any direct military action against the govern ment of Bashar Assad. “Words matter,” Bush said. “Presidents need to set United States aspira tions and intentions where there is little gap between words and deeds.” On Monday, Bush told business leaders in Washington that he would decide “in short order” whether to launch a presi dential bid. Establishment Republicans and big-mon ey donors see a prag matic governor who won two terms in the nation’s largest swing state in part by appealing to Florida’s fast-growing Hispanic population. Conservatives see Bush, the son and brother of presidents, as too moderate on immi gration and other issues important to them. Bush aimed to burnish his foreign policy creden tials Tuesday while also solidifying his connec tion to Florida’s powerful Cuban exile community. He did so primarily, for the second day in a row, by offering harsh words about the Obama administration. He said Obama played politics with his foreign policy, setting artifi cial timelines for troop withdrawals in Iraq and Afghanistan that ulti mately hurt U.S. standing in the Middle East and emboldened enemies such as Islamic State mil itants. Left unmentioned was Obama’s recent decision to send 3,000 troops back to Iraq as trainers and advisers and an aggressive air cam paign against IS. Bush emphasized American exceptional ism and called on the country to play a more robust role on the world stage. He said the United States should strengthen its military and bolster its alliances with Canada, Mexico and Israel while building coalitions with Latin America. “The United States needs to lead. Lead with humility, lead with respect — but lead,” Bush said. “We are not an equal partner in a com munity of nations. We are a leader among equals.” His remarks Tuesday also drew distinct differ ences between himself and Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former sec retary of state and the leading Democrat for her party’s presidential nomi nation, should she decide to seek it. Bush not only reaf firmed his support for the U.S. trade embargo, but said America should consider strengthening it. Without naming her, he criticized efforts by Clinton and others to lift the sanctions. Clinton, who backed the trade limits when she ran for president in 2008, reversed her position this year and now describes the embargo as “Castro’s best friend,” arguing that the regime uses it as a scapegoat for the island’s problems. Bush said the embargo should remain until the Castro regime is driven from power, or releases its political prisoners and holds free elections. He also pledged his support for the event’s host, the U.S-Cuba Democracy PAC, one of the policy’s staunchest defenders. “I am honored to be a soldier in your army,” he told the crowd in Spanish. Some of Florida’s most prominent Cuban-American leaders lauded him, citing his tenure over seeing a diverse state that has often served as safe harbor for refugees from across Latin America. “Jeb knows the world,” said former U.S. Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart.

By NICK ROLLISONnrollison@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man was arrested Monday on charges of drug posses sion, narcotics equip ment pos session, violation of probation, and resisting arrest according to a Lake City Police Department’s report. James Price, 40, of 1170 SE Violet Place, was arrested at 4:15 a.m. and booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. According to the report, an LCPD officer respond ed to a possible narcotics scene when Price’s father alerted LCPD that he had caught his son using drugs. When LCPD arrived Price’s father escorted the officer to his son’s bed room and told him that an officer was there to speak with him, according to the report. Price did not want to speak to the officer but his father told him that if he did not open the door to talk then Price would have to leave the residence. Price opened his door to speak to the officer and when the officer told Price why he was there he noticed a clear plastic bag next to Price. When questioned by the officer about the con tents of the bag Price tried to move it under a pillow behind him and stated that he didn’t know what bag the offi cer was referring to, the report details. Price was placed under arrest and according to the report, the officer found two small baggies in the plastic bag that are used in the making of synthetic marijuana as well as synthetic mar ijuana itself in another baggy. Upon discovery of the narcotics Price became very upset, according to the report, and fell to the ground complaining that he was having a seizure. LCPD alerted EMS to the scene, and after Price was examined by the EMS staff, he was transported to jail. LCPD: Father calls cops on son Price Scored on job placement and program depth.

Meanwhile, barely two weeks after its unveiling we’ve already seen one major acci-dent at this intersection. There’s no guaran-tee a traffic light would have prevented the crash, but it sure improves the odds. There’s no good reason not to approve this project. We urge commissioners to do so. Traffic signal needed Q Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1810, British forces captured Mauritius from the French, who had renamed the island nation off south east Africa “Ile de France.” In 1818, Illinois was admitted as the 21st state.In 1828, Andrew Jackson was elected president of th e United States by the Electoral College. In 1833, Oberlin College in Ohio -the first truly coeducational school of higher learning in the United St ates -began holding classes. In 1925, George Gershwin’s Concerto in F had its wo rld premiere at New York’s Carnegie Hall, with Gershwin at the piano. In 1947, the Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire” opened on Broadway. In 1967, surgeons in Cape Town, South Africa led by Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed the first human he art transplant on Louis Washkansky, who lived 18 days w ith the new heart. The 20th Century Limited, the famed luxury train, completed its final run from New York to Chicago. In 1979, 11 people were killed in a crush of fans a t Cincinnati’s Riverfront Coliseum, where the British rock group The Who was performing. In 1984, thousands of people died after a cloud of methyl isocyanate gas escaped from a pesticide plant op erated by a Union Carbide subsidiary in Bhopal, India. In 2001, Enron took steps to bolster its weak finan cial footing following its historic bankruptcy filing, a rranging $1.5 billion in financing and slashing 4,000 jobs. Reforming Florida’s prisons A new report from a group committed to prison reform in Florida presents a number of good suggestions that could foster change in the beleaguered Department of Corrections that this week lost its sixth chief in eight years. While outgoing Secretary Michael Crews has been working to fix some of the considerable problems, this report suggests his reforms fall short of what is nec-essary to create a new culture of accountability. Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature should review the report carefully and consider how some of its recommendations could improve the penal system. There are more than 100,000 inmates in Florida prisons. The department came under fire this year after the Miami Herald detailed reports of inmate abuse by correc-tions officers, unexplained inmate deaths and other officer-involved scandals. In one 2012 case, officers at the Dade Correctional Institution in Homestead allegedly put a men-tally ill prisoner into a scalding hot shower for nearly two hours.He died from his injuries. Crews, who announced this week he is leaving after about two years, has taken steps to root out the problems, including implementing a zero-tolerance policy for criminal behavior by corrections officers. But the Project on Accountable Justice at Florida State University contends the agency’s issues are systemic and go beyond the areas Crews has targeted. In its report, the group calls on Florida to imple-ment best practices from other states, including setting up a public oversight commission that would have the authority to inspect pris-ons, scour inmate and employee records and examine department policies and budgets. Other sug-gestions include creating a plan to employ a more professional work-force and holding the department accountable through the use of per-formance measurement tools. Problems within the DOC are legion, and the challenge of imple-menting reforms across such a large, cloistered agency is signifi-cant. There is a moral argument that prisoners, regardless of their crime, should be treated with dignity and kept safe while incarcerated. The department also should focus great-er attention on equipping inmates with the tools necessary to be suc-cessful once they are released from prison, which could help close the revolving door that sees nearly one-third of released inmates return to prison within three years. Florida’s $2.3 billion corrections system is too costly, and taxpayer money would be better spent provid-ing education, health care and job training for inmates. There also is room to consider the compassionate release of elderly inmates, particu-larly those with life-threatening infir-mities who pose little danger to soci-ety but weigh heavily upon prison resources. While far from a panacea, the new report provides thought-ful solutions to the state’s prison problem. The key to solving linger-ing issues within the Department of Corrections is not to build more prisons but to pursue comprehensive reform and proper oversight systems that remain in place regardless of who is leading the department.A feast of memorable holiday moments Q Tampa Bay Times L ife is made of moments. Some are better than others. But they all fit together in the end. On the last day of a two-week, whirlwind, 1,500-mile road trip in sunny California, it rained. I love rain. I took it as a parting gift. And I hated to leave, so it matched my mood. My husband and I had driven from our home in Las Vegas to begin our vacation with two days in Sonoma, visiting his older son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, Charlotte. Next came two days in San Francisco. We had lunch with his younger son; took BART to Oakland to see the Warriors beat the Jazz; and celebrated the christening of his niece’s sweet newborn, the lat-est addition to our rapidly growing clan. Finally, we drove down the coast to Pacific Grove to spend a week by Monterey Bay listening to the surf, watching waves crash on rocks and hosting Thanksgiving dinner for 21 people, our kids, grandkids, family and friends. It was a lot to pack into a couple of weeks. But we are nothing if not good packers. When you live far away from people you love, and don’t get to see them as often as you wish, you try to make the most of every moment together. Even the moments you might rather forget. On our last day of the trip, we said our goodbyes and took one last quick ride along the beach before getting on the road for home. Three hours into a nine-hour drive, my husband asked the question that I usually ask him first. “So,” he said, “what was your favorite moment?” “Not fair,” I said. “You first.”He listed several, then chose the one I knew he’d choose. “I really loved playing music with the grandkids.” I smiled, picturing him sitting by a window, with his bass in his arms, the ocean at his back and a couple of curly-headed 3-year-olds bounc-ing on every note. My oldest caught it on video with his cell phone and sent it to us later in an email he titled “School of Papa Mark.” “I loved it, too,” I said.“What about you?” he asked.Where to start? How to pick? A thousand memories flashed through my mind in no special order, far too many to name. Charlotte’s tutu. Henry’s kisses. Randy’s gift (a candle holder he made just for me.) Baby Wiley’s sweet smile as he said, “Nana.” My daughter-in-law’s beautiful belly with another grandbabe on the way. Cable cars in the City. Ice skaters at Union Square. The breathtaking view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Getting to hold our newly chris-tened nephew. Sitting on the couch between my basketball-crazy boys, watch-ing a game on TV in which Andrew Bogut passed behind his back to Steph Curry, who gave it back to Bogut for a slam. Letting my son-in-law do the turkey and the mashed potatoes. Watching my daughter make a dozen other dishes and hearing her joke (I think) when I offered advice: “Mom, I’ve got this. Don’t get in my business.” My favorite moment is usually a conversation. I love to talk almost as much as I love to listen. This trip was a wealth of conversa-tions with all sorts of interesting people, young and old, family and friends, plus a few passing strang-ers. But my favorite moment this time is a three-way tie: First, before guests arrived, I sat alone at the beach remembering loved ones, present and past, those who’d be with me at dinner and those who would not. Two, I joined hands in a circle of 21 people and gave thanks for another year to be together. Finally, at dinner, I sat for a while watching the faces of all those peo-ple and listening to their voices, a fine mingling, old and new, of laugh-ter and love. I wish you could’ve been there. Maybe you’d have done dishes and managed somehow to get people to go to bed before 2 a.m. Who knows? It might’ve been my favorite moment of all.

Florida Department of Corrections, the release said. After Yaney was found, he was transported to Shands Lake Shore Hospital with minor inju ries. He was later transferred to the Columbia County Jail where he faces charges of leaving the scene of a fatal crash, the release said. Patricia Teale, the mother of a friend to Mendell, said her son Curtis had grown up with Mendell and was extremely sad to hear of the accident. “Erik (Mendell) would come over all the time and play football with my son,” she said. “They pretty much grew up together, and it just makes me so sad to see this sort of thing happen.” As pictures and status updates are posted on Facebook in remembrance of Mendell, Danielle Moore, who identified herself as Mendell’s fiance, said on Facebook that she had no words for what happened Monday night. “I don’t know how to say it or think now,” she said on Facebook. “Last night we left our house and someone flew through a red light and hit us. I just keep waiting to wake up from a horrible nightmare...I want all of you to know that he loved all of his friends and family so much.” 6A WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2014 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Road) rehabilitation project will be a seven-mile construction project. The project will start north of the railroad tracks on Lake Jeffery Road and head west along Lake Jeffery Road to the county line. “The project will consist of milling the roadway (removing the top layer of asphalt), resurfacing, drainage improvements, new stripping and construction of the Bascom Norris intersection with new signalization,” Kirby said. “It was deemed upon design it was not a necessity to add additional lanes to that area. It will simply be converted from a stop sign situation to a full signalized intersection.” The estimated cost of the project is $1.9 million. “In our efforts of cost savings, we are using the current strand poles that are up there (for the traffic signal), compared to the mast arm signal holder,” Kirby said. “The strand poles, they suffice for what we’re doing there.” The project is listed on the county commission’s agenda for Thursday afternoon’s meeting. Kirby said if commissioners accept his recommendation to go forward to contract the project, the contractor will be given a 30-day notice to proceed. “Assuming the board says grace this meeting, give or take Jan. 1 the contractor will go to work and it’s a 90-day calendar project,” he said. “So in theory, April 1, construction including the intersection, will be concluded.” The contract also gives the contractor extra days should inclement weather slow the amount of construction days. Kirby said the roadway has deteriorated so much that simply overlaying the roadway with another level of asphalt isn’t the best solution. “We’re going to remove current layers of asphalt and replace with a structural and a friction course layer,” he said. Data was not available at press time detailing the amount of vehicles that used the roadway prior to the opening of the Bascom Norris connector road earlier in the month. “We’ve placed a traffic indicator counting system on the roadway. It’s under a 15-day study,” Kirby said, noting the data will not be available until next week. TRAFFIC LIGHTContinued From 1A Oct. 17 at 1:31 a.m., Nov. 12 at 12:42 p.m., Nov. 19, at 12:27 p.m. and on Monday at 6:45 p.m., the report said. Barbara Haake, the owner of the horse, said in the report that someone must have opened the gate. “I told her this was not the first time that this horse has gotten out,” a deputy said in the report. Megan Haake, daughter of Barbara and co-owner of Skunkie Acres, said although the horse had gotten loose from the property twice before, she denies it was the same horse that was killed in the accident on Monday night. She said the yellow horse had escaped after being in their new location for about a week and had not gotten loose any other times. The horse that was killed in the accident last night was a white horse that they had owned for seven years, she said. Murray Smith, CCSO public information officer, said based on a picture of a Skunkie Acres’ horse photographed on Nov. 12 on Lake Jeffery Road and after speaking with the deputy who worked on the accident Monday night, it appeared to be the same horse. Megan Haake said she and her family have been experiencing issues ever since they moved into their new location about a month ago off Lake Jeffery Road and were now moving again. “People have been throwing dead animals onto our property, cussing at us, threatening us as they drive by wearing ski masks and stealing our locks and opening the gate,” she said. She said on two separate occasions someone had taken raccoon insides with their heads still attached, put them in a grocery shopping bags and had thrown them inside their gate. “We’ve only been here for about a month and we’re already moving again,” she said. “We were told that this property would be suitable for the animals and it wasn’t.” She declined to say where they were moving. Smith said Barbara Haake could possibly face jail time depending on the situation of the case, but said it was most likely she would receive probation or a fine up to $500. Skunkie Acres recently relocated from White Springs but was denied a permit to house its numerous exotic animals at the Lake Jeffery location following a heated public hearing at which numerous neighbors voiced objections to the move. HORSEContinued From 1ABut Deupree has no doubts. “I’m going to overcome this cancer with chemo and walking because God’s not going to let me die,” Deupree said through tears. And Deupree’s not going to let cancer get in the way of his life. While he can’t run anymore, he plans to walk races to fight cancer. His goal is to raise $1 million for the American Cancer Society by December 2015 by walking races all over the country, but he needs sponsors to do that, which he doesn’t have right now, he said. Deupree originally started the project not long after Sheehan died of prostate cancer in November 1993. He knew he wanted to do something to fight cancer. But as to why he decided to proxy run races as his way to raise money for cancer research, he’s not quite sure. He was already running but only to benefit his own health, not the health of others. He was overweight and didn’t want to develop diabetes like his father and brother, he said. “I think maybe I saw a guy who was proxy running races... in Runner’s World,” Deupree said, mentioning that he subscribed to Runner’s World and other running magazines while he was in prison. He started the project by using the $100 his older brother would send him in prison each month to buy postage stamps and envelopes. He mailed the envelopes to as many Fortune 500 company CEOs as he could and asked them to sponsor him in the 5Ks, 10Ks, 15Ks and even half and full marathons that he was proxy running. But it hasn’t been easy, he says. According to FDOC records, Deupree has served time for armed robbery (though he didn’t actually have a gun, just a note claiming to have one), auto theft, forgery and escaping while on work release, all of which he says he did because of his dependence on alcohol, so he said he understands why some people would question his honesty. But the way Florida prison officials treated him was ridiculous, he said. He was repeatedly put into dis ciplinary confinement for running. “From 1994-2005, I spent more time in disciplinary confinement than I did on the prison yard track running against cancer,” Deupree said. He said prison officials were annoyed by him and all the publicity he got. “They hated me because I was doing something worthwhile with my prison time,” Deupree said. When news outlets would call FDOC’s public affairs office, all they would hear was that they didn’t think Deupree was actually running the races but rather just running a few races to garner media attention to get his sen tence reduced, he said. After he tried to enter the New York City Marathon in 2005 and gained a lot of publicity for it, the American Cancer Society told him that year that he had to stop using its logo and slogan when he tried to gather donations. The New York Times, St. Petersburg Times and Chicago Tribune all wrote about Deupree’s project in the early 2000s, and all the newspaper articles question whether Deupree ever actually ran the races in full. Deupree says he never cheated on his races and always went the full distance. “When I was sober and running, I would not lie about my mileage,” he said. He did want publicity but only because it helped him raise money to fight cancer, he said. It’s been almost 10 years since FDOC shut Deupree and his project down, and he’s now trying to get back to fighting cancer. “There’s no way they can doubt me now because there are going to be people watching me,” he said. Because of his recent lung cancer diagnosis, he has to walk the races, but that’s not going to stop him, he said. Deupree said he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in August and is waiting to start chemotherapy treatments. He and a friend he knows from church who’s a breast cancer survivor walked a breast cancer awareness 5K in October. And now, Deupree is preparing for another 5K race this month. “God gave me two talents — running and sales, and I’m going to use them,” he said. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterDeupree said that he will be fighting to fend off his cancer and with his doctors and his faith in God he will make it.

The senior’s offensive prowess kept an energetic crowd entertained with several high-flying plays including an emphatic tip-slam in the final minute of the third quarter that caused the CHS gymnasium to erupt. “That’s what the people came to see,” Hall said. “They call me Bounce Nation, that’s what they came to see. It feels good to come out and get a win tonight but we still got two more, got to make sure we win those too.” CHS finally got past its district rival after falling short in the previous two meetings last season. Tuesday night’s win concludes the first of three games at home this week for the Tigers. However, the Knights weren’t conquered without a fight. With Oakleaf’s starting center Nassir Little sidelined with the flu, the Tigers took advantage, cruising to a strong start in its season home opener. Hall’s first three-pointer of the night midway through the first quarter capitalized a Tigers’ scor-ing run that gave CHS a 12-4 advantage. Oakleaf quickly countered with a scoring run fueled off forced turnovers. Knights forward Jonathan Bryant II recorded a lay-up late in the first quarter to tie the game at 14. While CHS led 19-16 at the end of the first quarter, Oakleaf ‘s tenacious defense help them earn a comfortable lead early in the second quarter. The Knights pulled ahead to their largest lead of the night following Jeremy Brockington’s steal and fast-break finish, giv-ing his squad a 30-23 lead with four minutes before intermis-sion. The senior point guard recorded 12 of his 18 points in the first half. CHS bounced back once again to regain the lead on a Terry Cooper put-back in the final min-ute of the half. A foul with nine seconds remaining sent Bryant II to the charity stripe. After sinking a pair of free throws, the Tigers went into the locker room behind 38-37. CHS came into the second half with a slight change to its fullCHS comes onstrong in second half for 76-67 win. CHS continued on 6B Defensive puzzlesolved by TigersBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comKevin Thomas-Griffin has been a terror for Oakleaf’s oppo-sition in their first five games, yet in the Knights’ sixth game of the season Tuesday night, he seemed powerless — a mission accomplished for the Tigers. Columbia High head coach Steve Faulkner maintained all week long that containing the big man would be pivotal for the Tigers. The 6’6 senior was the centerpiece of Tigers’ defensive plans heading into Tuesday night’s contest, and it was evident as he finished with a season-low six points. Griffin failed to score in the second half. With frontcourt running mate center Nassir Little out with the flu, it allowed the Tigers to lock in defensively on Griffin. “I think him and Nassir play off well together because they’re both tall guys that can pass big to big,” Knights head coach Jason Price said. “When Nassir is in the post, the other team’s best post player has to play him so Kevin is able to be a little more explosive. They did a good job zeroing in on him.” Faulkner gives all credit to his forward Darrell Jones who was assigned to Griffin throughout the night. Jones managed to keep Griffin out of passing lanes and in the paint, where he typically thrives. “I thought Darrell did a great job,” Faulkner said. “Darrell had two fouls at halftime and he asked me he said ‘coach I want him’. I think he made him a non-factor which is probably a big reason we won tonight.” Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Dilan Hall makes a slam dunk over O akleaf defenders on Tuesday night.

By GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the woman who has said he sexually assaulted her spent nearly five hours in separate rooms at a closed-door hearing recounting what happened nearly two years ago. Florida State held the hearing examining whether Winston violated the school’s student code of conduct. The hearing adjourned, but is scheduled to resume on Wednesday when more witnesses are expected to testify what hap-pened in December 2012. Winston look somberfaced as left the campus building where the hear-ing occurred and did not answer reporters’ ques-tions as he left. Attorney David Cornwell, adviser to the Winston fam-ily and who is representing the QB at the proceeding, said the hearing went “basi-cally as we expected.” “We think this nightmare will be over very soon,” Cornwell said. The hearing before a former Florida Supreme Court chief justice is closed to the public and media. It is to determine whether Winston violated any or all of four sections of the code of conduct — two for sexual misconduct and two for endangerment. The ramifications for Winston range from a rep-rimand to expulsion from school. John Clune, the attorney for the former FSU student who said Winston assault-ed her, called the hearing “empowering,” saying it gave the woman a chance to tell her side of the story. He said the woman chose not to testify in the same room with Winston because “that’s not just something that is a healthy thing for our client.” “It’s a big day,” Clune said. “The first thing is that she wanted to be heard. And she’s had the opportunity to do that. And after that she would like to be validated.” Winston was not arrested following an investiga-tion of the woman’s allegation. Prosecutor Willie Meggs declined to file charges last December, citing a lack of evidence.

They left together less than a half-hour later. The Associated Press is not identifying the woman because it does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual abuse. The hearing is being held at a time when Florida State is currently being investi-gated by the Department of Education on how hit han-dles possible Title IX viola-tions. The woman who said Winston assaulted her filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights, which decided the universi-ty should be investigated for possible Title IX violations over the way it responds to sexual violence complaints. Title IX is a federal statute that bans discrimina-tion at schools that receive federal funding. The Department of Education in 2011 warned schools of their legal responsibilities to immediately investigate allegations of sexual assault and domestic violence, even if the criminal investigation has not concluded. Off-field problems have been a consistent issue for one of college football’s big-gest stars. Since Meggs announced he wasn’t filing charg-es against Winston in December 2013, the quar-terback has been involved in two widely publicized off-field incidents. In April, he took $32 worth of crab legs and crawfish from a Tallahassee Publix. He said he forgot to pay, but he agreed to com-plete 20 hours of commu-nity service, which he did. He was briefly suspended from the baseball team, where he is a relief pitcher. Winston was suspended for one game on the football team in September after he climbed atop a table in a Florida State lunchroom and yelled an obscene phrase. WINSTON Continued From Page 1B

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: I was divorced three years ago and have had a boyfriend, “Roger,” for a year and a half. He is seven years younger, and he’s intrigued with women on the Internet. He saves tons of photos of these girls on his cellphone. These ladies are “perfect.” They have big breasts and curvaceous behinds, etc. I have had two kids. I’m not overweight and I exercise and keep myself in shape, but I have a “Mom body.” Roger has told me he loves my body and every thing about me. But the feel ing I get is that he wishes I looked like those girls. I have asked Roger not to save these photos because it makes me insecure. If he’s going to look, fine. But saving them is another thing. He promised me he wouldn’t, but some of them are still there. So he not only makes me feel like a fatty, but he lies to me, too. He has more pictures of other girls than he does of me. Now I no longer feel com fortable undressing in front of him. I leave my clothes half-on and turn out the lights when we have sex. He has made me unable to stand myself. What do I do? — CAN’T COMPARE IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CAN’T COMPARE: The first thing to do would be to stop looking at your boyfriend’s cellphone. Then ask your self whether he has been seeing other women or just collecting pictures. If it’s the former, you have something to worry about. If it’s the latter, it’s no reflection on you, and he has voyeuristic tendencies (men are visual). Stop making compari sons. He says he loves your body. Unless you have a solid reason to think differ ently, believe him. You are overdue for a frank talk with Roger, and when you do, tell him everything you have written to me. Your problem may go deeper than his photo gallery and your lowered self-image. If you can’t trust what he tells you, the foun dation of your relationship isn’t solid. DEAR ABBY: I’m carry ing a heavy burden concern ing my 14-year-old grand son. He told me in strictest confidence that he had sex with a 14-year-old girl. I have been his male support system, mentor, adviser, dis ciplinarian and friend for 12 years because his father is rarely in the picture. He swore me to secrecy, which I want to respect, but I’m torn about telling my daughter. She has a right to know that her son is sexu ally active and needs closer supervision. We discussed condoms (they used them), accidental pregnancy, pos sible criminal charges and responsibility, but I think he is more proud than alert to the possible consequences. If I share this with my daughter, I break a long-held trust. When I urged him to tell his mother, he refused. What do I do? This is tearing me up. — KANSAS GRANDPA DEAR GRANDPA: Without betraying the confi dence, start talking to your daughter about how, at 14, her son is fast becoming a man with all that it entails, including raging hormones. Then suggest she have some frank talks with the boy and keep a closer eye on him, unless she wants to become a grandma before he’s out of high school. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Show everyone what you have to offer. Presenting your talents will attract new possibilities. Travel plans or long-distance communi cation will lead to a closer relationship with someone special. Think fast, act responsibly and you will get your way. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t get involved in joint money ventures. Do your best to stay on top of whatever job you’ve been given. Strive to stabilize your position. Stick to basics and don’t get sidetracked by some one who is indulgent. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Playful actions could lead to posi tive personal changes. You can make home improve ments as long as you budget wisely and leave enough money for some thing that improves your love life. Added discipline will help you establish your goals. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your wits about you when deal ing with money matters. Fast-talking sales pitch es can be mesmerizing and lead to an impulsive purchase you will regret. Problems with instructions and competitive peers can be expected. Proceed with caution. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make subtle personal changes and you will win the support you need to press ahead with your goals. Love is highlighted and playful interaction with someone special will bring you closer together. Beware of a false impres sion regarding someone’s assets. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get into the swing of things. Take part in com munity events or delve into your family background and traditions. Someone you live with is likely to be unpredictable. Watch fami ly spending carefully. Shop around and you’ll find a bargain. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participation and short trips will lead to sat isfying personal changes. The ideas resulting from what you see and hear will not be immediately under stood by everyone, but can lead to new ideas and solutions. You can make a difference if you try. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Practice minimalism and avoid feelings of regret. Venture down a path that offers something different from what you are accustomed to seeing, doing and hear ing. Let your intuition guide you. Stick close to the peo ple who have always been there for you. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Using force should be ruled out. You will accomplish more if you are witty, playful and willing to be a team player. Positive changes at home will result in praise as well as personal comfort. Love will blossom if you are attentive. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make per sonal changes that will ensure comfort and afford ability. A show of emotion is not necessarily a sign of weakness. Share your thoughts and resolve issues that have been weighing you down mentally and physically. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put more effort into how you earn a living. Don’t shy away from raising your awareness of what’s going on in your industry, community or economy. Pick up skills that are compatible with the changing marketplace. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t make assumptions. Get the facts before you make a statement or a decision. Look for opportunities to address a concern you have as well as earn a little cash. Use your ingenuity and be true to your beliefs. ++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Photo gallery of perfection makes woman feel insecure Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

By MARK LONG AP Sports WriterGAINESVILLE — Florida has targeted Colorado State’s Jim McElwain to fill its coach-ing vacancy. Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley spent several hours at McElwain’s home Tuesday and was expected to spend the night in Fort Collins, Colorado. A person familiar with the coaching search said Foley was planning to offer the job to the former Alabama offen-sive coordinator. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because Florida has not pub-licly announced details of the coaching search. But aspects of the search became public Tuesday. Foley and several of his top assistants boarded a charter flight that left Gainesville on Tuesday, landed in Joplin, Missouri, and then continued to Fort Collins to meet with McElwain, the person said. Reporters followed them to McElwain’s home. Foley fired Will Muschamp on Nov. 16, a day after the team’s sixth home loss in eight games. Muschamp agreed to stick around for the final two regular-season games and fin-ished with a 28-21 record in four seasons. Foley detailed several requirements for Muschamp’s replacement, saying his next coach had to have high integ-rity, character and needed to be a fit at Florida. The 52-year-old McElwain was born in Montana and spent much of his coaching career out west. But he also has NFL experience, Southeastern Conference ties and a track record of success on the offen-sive side of the ball. Foley said offensive success was paramount for Florida’s next coach after four years of offensive futility in Gainesville, where fans got somewhat spoiled watching Steve Spurrier’s “Fun ‘n’ Gun” in the 1990s and then Urban Meyer’s high-scoring spread scheme in the late 2000s. The Gators finished 105th, 103rd and 113th in total offense during Muschamp’s first three seasons. They rank 90th this season, but Muschamp said two weeks ago that he’s leav-ing behind a “deep and tal-ented roster, so don’t let that new guy tell you he ain’t got no good players.” “They got some good football players in that locker room,” Muschamp said. “I feel like we’ve headed in the right direction at quarterback, as far as the depth and quality of the guys you got in the room, both lines of scrimmage, tal-ented secondary as I’ve been around as far as those guys coming back, linebackers. You got some good players.” McElwain is finishing his third season at Colorado State. He led the Rams to a 10-2 record and was named the Mountain West Conference’s coach of the year Tuesday. His offense ranks 13th nationally, averaging 498 yards a game. McElwain took over a program that went 3-9 for three consecutive seasons (2009-11), but has enjoyed a quick turn-around since his arrival. The Rams went 4-8 in 2012 and 8-6 last year before this season’s breakthrough performance. They have wins against rival Colorado and Boston College in 2014. McElwain has a $7.5 million buyout in his contract, which is posted online, but Florida is hoping to negotiate a lower settlement. A provision in the contract allows Colorado State President Tony Frank to reduce or elimi-nate the hefty fee for “extenu-ating circumstances” should McElwain voluntarily step down before the deal expires. Former Colorado State athletic director Jack Graham told the Coloradoan on Tuesday that Frank agreed to reduce or eliminate the fee in June if McElwain’s “dream job” came along. By STEVEN WINEAP Sports WriterDAVIE — A rare fourthquarter rally on the road has given the Miami Dolphins a clearer path to the playoffs. They still might need to win the rest of their games, however. Miami is trying to end its six-year playoff drought, and a 16-13 comeback vic-tory over the New York Jets left the Dolphins tied with five other AFC teams at 7-5. While their 6-3 record within the conference helps in potential tiebreaker sce-narios, the Dolphins have little margin or no for error in their final four games, beginning Sunday at home against Baltimore (7-5). Coach Joe Philbin said he doesn’t need to talk with his players about playoff ramifications. “They are aware. There is a lot of stimulus out there that they can tap into that their generation is more used to tapping into than mine,” Philbin said Tuesday. “We’ve talked to them more about the month of December and the importance of each and every game in December. This one that we have com-ing up, Baltimore, both on paper and on film, is as good as team as we’ve seen.” To beat the Ravens, Philbin said, the Dolphins must play better than they did Monday night. Miami gave up 277 yards rushing and trailed for much of the game, but outscored New York 10-0 in the final quar-ter to escape. The fourth-quarter comeback win was only the Dolphins’ second on the road since 2005, fewest in the NFL, according to STATS. “Bad game, good win,” offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said with a grin. “We’ll take it. Sometimes you have to do it that way. I hope the players come out of it with confidence in the fact that they can win a game at the end.” The Dolphins had been 0-3 in games decided by four points or less. In all three defeats they blew a fourth-quarter lead, so defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle was especially pleased to shut out the Jets over the final 22 minutes, with Reshad Jones making a game-clinching intercep-tion in the final seconds. “I’m proud of the way the guys kept their resolve and composure,” Coyle said. “When we had to come up with plays to win the game, we were able to do that. I think we showed a lot of character, and it was notice-able growth in our team overall.” One key play was Cameron Wake’s third-down sack late in the third quarter to push the Jets out of field goal range when they led 13-6. “We had talked prior to the game about there being points where individual players were going to have to step up and make plays,” Coyle said. “That was some-thing that has been missing a little bit for us at critical times late in games. I think Cam certainly took that to heart. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2014 Page Editor: Eric Jackson, 754-0420 386-364-1683 3076 95th Drive Live Oak, FL 32060 www.MusicLivesHere.com DOORS OPEN AT 6PM MUSIC STARTS AT 8PM FREE ADMISSION!

The adjustment clearly ben-efitted the Tigers as the Knights struggled to find their rhythm for the rest of the night. Despite Tigers captain Kelvin Jonas being benched the majority of the second half with foul trouble, his team-mates in the backcourt stepped up. CHS’s Jordan Coppock, Darrell Jones, Wayne Broom and Hall all fin-ished with double figures. “With the new floor, first district game, and knowing how good Oakleaf is — its a great way to start our home season,” Tigers head coach Steve Faulkner said. “(After losing to) Ed White, we needed a confidence booster and this is what the doctor ordered.” Hall’s rimrattling dunk concluded the first three quarters as the Tigers went into the final period with a 58-51 lead. The Knights made a convincing scoring run late midway through the fourth quarter, but to no avail. A pair of free throws by Jonas following an intentional foul in the final minute put the nail in the coffin. “I thought it was just two good basket-ball teams going toe to toe,” Knights head coach Jason Price. “I can’t fault (our) effort or defense. I thought we played all the way to the end. We’ll play again — January 9th — our place.” CHS prepares to face Fort White Thursday night in the second game of the home stand.
