It is not clear what inroads the group has made in Columbia County, but one local civil rights leader says their presence here doesn’t surprise him. The three men, Thomas Jordan Driver, 25, of Lake City; David Elliot Moran, 47, of Lake Butler and Charles Thomas Newcomb, 42, of Keystone Heights, were arrested Thursday. Newcomb was transferred to the Columbia County Detention Facility on Friday. Driver is an officer at the Department of Corrections Reception and Medical Center in Lake Butler and Moran was a sergeant at the facility. Newcomb is a former corrections officer. Each faces one state count of conspiracy to commit murder, according to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. They allegedly hired a hit man to kill a former inmate that Driver said bit him during a fight while in prison. The three, who are white, said the black inmate was trying to infect Driver with HIV or hepatitis, which they believe he had contracted. The hit man was actually an FBI informant. Mark Potok, Senior Fellow at Southern Poverty Law Center, an Accused DOC workers said to be part of Missouri-based branch of the KKK.

After suffering a medical emergency that cut off the flow of oxygen to his brain at the age of 4, Jonny, who is now 15 and lives in Fort White, was diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy often caused by an injury to the brain. Before Thursday, Jonny had trouble finding the right words to express himself — his mother compared his condition to that of a stroke victim — and could best express himself through his numerous paintings. He can now find words that he was never able to say before. “The difference is incredible,” said Kathleen Dale, Jonny’s mother. “The Jon we knew last week wasn’t able to point to objects and know what they’re called. Now, he’s able to identify things he couldn’t before.” It started on Thursday night when Dale said Jonny began to randomly utter phrases she had never heard him say before. Jonny was able to say things like “I want to go to Disney World,” which he said during an interview with the Lake City Reporter on Friday. Jonny even pulled the chairs out from under the table to help everyone sit down before the interview began on Friday, which was something he had never done before, Dale said. “God is good, and stepby-step, he’s started to get better,” Dale said. “It’s taken 11 years to get where we are today, but he’s riding horses, running, jumping and just learned how to kick a ball for the first time a few weeks ago. He’s also taken up painting.” Just before Jonny’s 13th birthday, Dale said she was shopping in Michael’s when she came across a child’s paint set.

CARTERSVILLE T he former drummer and a found ing member of the Southern hard rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, Robert Burns Jr., died late Friday in a single-vehicle crash in Georgia, police and his father said. Burns’ vehicle went off a road just before midnight as it approached a curve near Cartersville, striking a mail box and a tree, Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Tracey Watson said. Burns, 64, was killed in the wreck. He was not wearing a seatbelt. The single-vehicle accident remains under investigation, and Watson said further details were not immediately available. Burns was one of five musicians who founded the band in Jacksonville, Florida. While Burns was with the group, it recorded “Sweet Home Alabama,” ‘’Gimme Three Steps,” and “Free Bird.” He left the group in 1974. He continued to play for fun or in guest appearances nationally, said his father, Robert Burns Sr. Early on, the group played in the Burns’ family garage. “He was a product of his mother, so far as manners is concerned,” the elder Burns said. “He had the manners that would suit the King of England. Very soft-spoken and extremely well-man nered person to come out of that kind of industry.” Lifetime unsure what to do with Will Ferrell movie NEW YORK — The fate of a Lifetime TV movie featuring Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig remained unclear on Friday after the project’s planned secre cy was spoiled. The former “Saturday Night Live” stars made the ominously titled “A Deadly Adoption,” playing a couple who befriend a pregnant woman in hopes of adopting her child. Lifetime’s movies, frequently melodramas about life and love that appeal to the network’s primar ily female audience, are a genre onto themselves and often ripe for parody. “We are disappointed that our secret project with Will and Kristen was leaked and the network is determining the fate of the movie,” said Michael Feeney, spokesman for Lifetime’s corporate par ent, A&E Networks, on Friday. A spokesman for the actors’ talent agency had no immediate comment on Lifetime’s plans. After word of the project got out, Ferrell issued a statement that he and Wiig had decided it was “in the best interest for everyone to forego the project entirely.” Lifetime had said the movie was due to air this summer. Ferrell’s statement may be an empty threat: Stars generally don’t have the ability to kill an already-filmed project, except in the unusual circumstance where they fully financed the produc tion, said Jonathan Handel, an entertain ment attorney for the Hollywood firm TroyGould. Even then, they could face a breach of contract lawsuit if the film had already been leased to a television network. In most cases, television movies are financed jointly by a production compa ny and the network itself, Handel said. It’s not known how long Lifetime and the stars planned to keep the secret. Typically, a cable network that lands two big Hollywood stars for a project gives potential viewers at least some advanced warning that it is coming. If Ferrell and Wiig legitimately want to shelve “A Deadly Adoption,” it means months spent writing a screenplay, act ing the scenes and editing the movie would go to waste. 2A SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2015 DAILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 BRADENTON A Bradenton-area woman found a rare lithograph at a neighborhood Goodwill for just $45. The Bradenton Herald reports that the 1911 Alexander Pope tin lithograph is now on auction through eBay. Bids had reached $1,725 late Friday and the Auction continues through the next week. The woman who found the lithograph says she will use money from the auction to pay for medical treatment of dogs at a local animal shelter.Miniature pony uses prosthetic to walk OCALA — Rafiki the minia ture pony is happily grazing and relaxing at an Ocala-area ranch thanks to a prosthetic hoof. Area newspapers report that Rafiki had sustained a major injury to his hoof and couldn’t walk when he was rescued by a woman in Minnesota. A North Dakota-based miniature horse rescue group paid $15,000 for Rafiki to have surgery and be fitted for a prosthetic hoof. Rafiki has since found a new home at Clear Skies Ranch near Ocala with a dozen other minia ture ponies. Ranch workers say he appears happy and healthy and that he enjoys spending time with the other horses.Fake checkpoint used to curtail drug flow PANAMA CITY — Inundated by spring break chaos and short on patrol officers, the Bay County Sheriff’s office hopes to curtail the flow of drugs to area beaches by using a fake check point. The Panama City News Herald reports that a sign for a drug checkpoint on a main highway entering Bay County is not what it seems. There is no check point, but officers monitor the behavior of passing motorists to see if they throw drugs or guns out the window when they notice the sign. Major Tommy Ford says offi cers can initiate a traffic stop based on that suspicious behav ior. The fake checkpoint had been open for only a couple of hours Friday, but officers had already recovered drugs and made two arrests. Peace Corps man dies in Tanzania PALMETTO — A Peace Corps volunteer from Florida’s Gulf Coast died of unknown causes in Tanzania. The Bradenton Herald reports that 29-year-old David Ripley died Tuesday. According to a Peace Corps statement, Ripley was a trained paramedic assigned to work in Rwanda. He was visiting Tanzania when he died. Ripley was working in a com munity health center and read ing books to children regularly at the Kigali Reading Center. Prior to his volunteer work with the Peace Corps, Ripley worked as a charge paramed ic after graduating cum laude from St. Petersburg College and earning certifications as a paramedic and a firefighter. Family members in Florida said Ripley worked as a paramedic in Tallahassee and later in St. Petersburg.Former homeless officer gives back CLEARWATER — Officer Eric Mitchell watched as the home less gathered in a grassy lot on Pierce Street. On a recent Tuesday, dozens of men and women, some on bikes and others in wheelchairs or on crutches, formed a line and waited to receive plates of rice, beans and pasta salad from organizers with the Hearts on Fire Ministry. Mitchell was there as part of the Clearwater Police Department’s bike team, which primarily focuses on homeless outreach. As a teenager, he used to stand in lines like this at food pantries and lived in a car for a year, but eventually got off the streets and hopes he can help others to do the same in his new role on the team. “It’s not just white noise. It’s not just, ‘Hey, this is a great pro gram and this can help you,’” said Mitchell, 36. “This is how it helped me. This is where my fam ily could have been, where they were, and where we are now.” When Mitchell was 5, his family moved from the Bronx, N.Y., to Clearwater. They never settled down, moving more than 30 times — trailer parks, motels, friends’ homes — within one year. They moved so much Mitchell stopped going to school by the time he was a third-grader. His mother, Marge Mitchell, often worked as a secretary or telemarketer, but couldn’t keep a steady job because she some times stole from employers or wrote bad checks to make ends meet, her son recalls. The family’s turbulent lifestyle continued for years. In 1995, Marge lost her job again and they were evicted from an apart ment. Mother and 15-year-old son moved their belongings into a 1981 four-door Chevy. “We had no more places to go,” he said.Orlando to Dubai flights to start daily ORLANDO — Dubai-based Emirates Airline plans daily flights from Orlando to Dubai starting on Sept. 1. The Disney-to-Dubai service has drawn the ire of some U.S. carriers who say Emirates Airline and other airlines based in the region are using unfair govern ment subsidies through so-called “open skies agreements” to fund their global expansion. Emirates and the other air lines deny that claim. HOW TO REAC H USMain number ....... .

By NICK ROLLISONSpecial to the ReporterThe sky was cloudy and the rain threatened for most of the day, but nothing could dampen the joy of children having a good time on Easter weekend. Hundreds of children clutched their Easter egg baskets on Saturday as not one, but two, Easter egg hunts were taking place in Lake City. The first was the second annual Egg-stravaganza, put on by the Lake City Chamber of Commerce and hosted by title sponsor Haven Hospice and sponsor Odom, Moses & Company, while Annie Mattox Park hosted the second, which was sponsored by the Most Worshipful Union Grand Lodge of Florida. Both events had thousands of eggs that were just waiting to be gathered by eager Easter egg hunters. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dennille Decker watched as children bounced in bounce houses, participated in arts and crafts and had their face painted by volunteers from Church on the Way. “We’ve got a lot of people buzzing around already, before it’s starting,” said Decker. “So I hope that’s a good sign.” “It’s a good opportunity for the public to come out and enjoy something as a community,” said Joesph Brooks, administrator for Haven Hospice. Bellamy Beaver, The Itchetucknee Partnership’s mascot, filled in for the Easter Bunny, dancing along with professional children’s singer Shana Banana’s small entourage of Easter egg hunters. The musical entertainment didn’t stop there, and the Southern Rhythm Cloggers took the stage, showing off their moves. One could argue though that the highlight of the day, or at least the most dirty, was Chases Racing Pigs, which featured four miniature potbellied pigs racing around a small track. The race was put on by self proclaimed pig racing masters Pam and Ed Chase, who have lived in Lake City for about 25 years and are in their sixth year of racing pigs. “I’m the swine master,” said Pam Chase, as she was putting their mascot, a tiny miniature pig named Lucy, in her basket. The crowd cheered on such favorites as Oscar Meyer and Snoop Hoggy Hog as they ran, swam and splashed their way to the finish line. Three thousand eggs were set loose for the egg hunt just as the rain began to fall. However, another Easter event across town had just completed their hunt. Families gathered at around 11 a.m. Saturday at Annie Mattox Park to participate in an egg hunt, tug of war, and more in an event hosted by Most Worshipful Union Grand Lodge of Florida. MWUG and Worshipful Master Chris Mirra seemed pleased by the turnout at Annie Mattox. “I think it was a success,” said Mirra. “We’ve got a little over 50 kids here. Over two thousand eggs. Plenty for everybody.” Also in attendance were Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter and Lake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore, as well as officers from both law enforcement agencies. They helped kids line up in order for MWUG Senior Warden Mike Kelly and Past Master Dennis Murphy to hand out prizes, which included baskets filled with candy, two $25 gift certificates and four bicycles. “Wonderful,” said Gilmore, in response to how the ay was going. “We’ve had an awesome time with [the children].” Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2015 3A Outstanding Leader of Inpatient TherapyOur therapy program is designed to rehabilitate individuals back to their highest level of independence and functioning.

To the Editor:I certainly second Mr. Lenvil Dicks’ letter of complaint concern ing the timing of traffic lights in Lake City. It was a letter that I had been meaning to write for a long time now. The situation is even worse at night. I frequently travel through town between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. and I have to sit at these interminable lights with no other vehicles coming. It is not uncommon to see 4 to 6 vehicles sit ting at the light at Main and Baya wait ing for minutes to cross Baya when there is virtually no traffic on Baya. To the powers that be -— C’mon guys, haven’t you heard of turning the lights to a flashing mode in the off-hours? Are you living in the last century, or are you saying Columbia County drivers are just too incom petent? Robert C.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Emily Lawson, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman Just when it appeared state officials had begun to plumb the depths of depravity of a few rogue elements at the department of corrections, comes word Thursday of a bizarre alleged plot by three current and former officers to mur der an ex-inmate they hated because he was black and tried to bite one of them. What makes it worse is that one of the alleged plotters is from Lake City and all three are said to be members of a particu larly violent branch of the Ku Klux Klan. Is there any end in sight to the atrocities said being staged in and around our state prison system? That all these things are now coming to light — the alleged murders by officers, the rampant disorder among inmates, some of whom right here at Columbia Correctional Institution are said to make thousands of dollars a month selling smart phones to other inmates — is a good thing. The problem can’t be fixed until it has been fully exposed and examined. Still, this last revelation is just a bit much. We’re anxious — and not in the good sense — to see what comes next. Let’s hope federal and state investigators get to the bottom of this heap, and soon. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Watch for ‘coded sexism’ should Mrs. Clinton run I would like to discuss Hillary Clinton’s impending announce ment that she is running for president, but, frankly, I am afraid. If I posit that she is ambitious, driven or a lovely grandmother, it will be taken as “coded sexism.” If I say she is brilliant, well-organized and aging beautifully, it will be seen as sycophantic. Folks, we are getting into a new etymological (study of words) quag mire here, and it is sort of scary. How, you ask, will the popular (or not) media handle this? My betting is that it will be treat ed with all the gusto, political cor rectness, ineptitude, posturing and ridiculousness you would expect from the media. And in the end, everything will be said about the former secretary of state that is condescending, obnoxious, sexist and rude and everything will be said about the former first lady that is hyperbolic, ostentatiously preten tious and over the moon. Having covered every presidential election since 1976, I know that the preferred metaphor is the horse race. (For a brief period in 2012, it was neck-and-neck between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.) If the horse race analogy doesn’t work, we go to the boxing ring. Geraldine Ferraro’s vice presidential bid was “down for the count” after her press conference in which she tried to explain her hus band’s murky financial affairs. But some of Hillary’s “people” (she won’t have actual paid aides in her campaign for a few days until she announces) are telling report ers they don’t want any “coded sexism” in the coverage of their beloved politician. Some blogger who is a big Hillary supporter from 2008 let fly by email a list of words he warned reporters not to use when writing about the next Clinton candidacy. When this overwrought nugget was tweeted out by a New York Times reporter, the airwaves pal pitated with 1) speculation this could hurt Hillary because the sensitive media would be furious; 2) outraged claims that such a blogger has absolutely no connection to Hillary and was just stirring things up; 3) assurances that when the real campaign aides come on board such missteps won’t happen. All that may be true, but the issue has been raised. Will Hillary’s bid be reduced to sexist drivel in other arenas besides Rush Limbaugh’s fantasy world? The fear is, yes, it will. Politics has been dominated by testosterone for so long in this country that the temptation to discuss Hillary’s hair, clothing, jewelry and mannerisms may be too great, too easy and too much fun. That moment when she briefly had tears in her eyes in 2008 was treated with the same gravitas as her pro-war stance. (When former Colorado con gresswoman Pat Schroeder dropped out of the race, her tears were seen as a sure sign of weakness. In fair ness, Ed Muskie’s tears in talking about his wife were also seen as signs of weakness. But, today, House Speaker John Boehner’s fre quent tears are viewed with patron izing amusement.) The other issue that already has arisen about Hillary’s bid is how frequently she will consult her hus band and how he will be “handled” by her staff. Since he is a former president, a for midably smart man and a keen politi cal strategist, one would hope they will talk nonstop. After all, until bipartisan ship became a dirty word, candidates, presidents and former presidents used to exchange advice all the time. But some defenders of Hillary already are taking offense at any implication that she regularly will seek his advice, angrily insisting that is sexist. In the end, let’s hope she will be treated no better and no worse than one of the guys. And just think of it. It’s going to be Hillary lining up against about two dozen (and counting) males! Most of her supporters are certain she’ll hold her own. But others warn they’ll be watching. No words or phrases such as polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, entitled, overconfident, will do any thing to win, secretive, represents the past, out of touch, tired and worn out. It would be very refreshing if we didn’t see any of such tired, worn-out, polarizing language about anyone in the upcoming political race. Period. Let’s at least have some new cliches in this horse race. TODAY IN HISTORY Q Associated Press On this date:In 1614, Pocahontas, Indian Chief Powhatan’s daugh ter, married Englishman John Rolfe in the Virginia Colony. (A convert to Christianity, Pocahontas had adopted the name “Rebecca” when she was baptized.) In 1864, Ben Field and George M. Pullman received a U.S. patent for an “improvement in (rail) sleep ing-cars” that consisted of a folding upper berth. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order creating the Civilian Conservation Corps and an anti-hoarding order that effectively pro hibited private ownership of gold. In 1951, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were sentenced to death in New York following their conviction on charges of conspiring to commit espionage for the Soviet Union. In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Federal Communications Commission v. American Broadcasting Co., Inc., unanimously ruled that TV quiz shows did not violate lottery laws. In 1964, Army General Douglas MacArthur died in Washington at age 84. In 1974, Stephen King’s first published novel, “Carrie,” was released by Doubleday. No end in sight for DOC woes? To the Editor:I read Lenvil Dicks’ letter to the editor in Wednesday’s paper about the traffic light dilemma now challenging Lake City’s residents and laughed aloud at the unfortunate “experi ences” of some of our more sched ule-driven citizens because of it. Giving me a heads up about the situation was also much appreciated. I had not yet noticed these recali brations, but if proven to be true, this disgrace will allow me one more weapon to use in my ongoing quest to prove that the whole world is going to hell in a hand basket. Anyone over 80 already knows this, but these young whippersnap pers are clueless and must be con stantly reminded of the imminent dangers they daily face. And you are quite right that a citizen complaint would accomplish nothing. We oldsters may as well sit on a mountaintop and bay at the moon.

snatched it up and saved it for his birthday. “We started crying the first time he started painting his first picture,” she said. “It might not look like much, but for somebody who can’t color in the lines well or colors everything the same color, it is amazing.” With each picture he paints, Jonny continues to get better at express ing his creativity. Dale said he doesn’t follow anyone’s instructions other than his owns and paints whatever he feels. Many times, his artwork stems from a movie he’s watched or someplace he’s been. He begins each of his paintings by sketching a drawing on a canvas, Dale said. Although his drawings might not be perfect at first, Dale said by the time he picks up his brush and adds the paint, the finished product leaves everyone speechless. He started with an acrylic art set and has slowly progressed into painting with oils. However, most of his paintings are mixed media creations. The speed with which Jonny paints depends in great part on how he feels that day. Each piece has been different, Dale said. On a good day, Jonny suffers around 10 partial seizures, which typically last less than a minute. On a bad day, he can have up to 50 minor seizures that potentially lead to a grand mal or “tonic-clonic” episode. Those are severe and can last up to three minutes. Jonny’s trouble started 11 years ago, with surgery at a Jacksonville hospital to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. He was fine for two days afterward, but the 4-yearold did get into the habit of pulling his pulse monitor off his finger. The first three times brought the nurse running. The fourth time she thought it was another false alarm and didn’t respond. It was a mistake that would change the Dale family’s life forever. Jonny threw up and fell face first into his pillow. No one knows exactly how, but he began to choke, which cut off oxygen to his brain. His lungs collapsed and his brain began to swell. Jonny was sent to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and then hooked up to a ventilator to keep him breathing. After four days, Dale said the doctors told her Jonny’s health was declining and that he couldn’t live much longer on the ventilator. They took him off the machine and his oxygen levels dropped dangerously low. By this point he had begun to seize violently. “We just kept singing, praying and talking to him,” she said. “And he just didn’t stop seizing. They placed him in our arms and one by one, people started leaving the room.” For more than five hours, Dale said she and her husband, Mervin, held Jonny alone in the room. But someone else was watching over them. “Jesus was in the room with us,” she said. “We had no assurance that Jon was going to live or that he was going to die, but we knew that God’s will would be done. It was the biggest miracle that we’ve seen of all, and there was joy in that room.” The hospital chaplain and music therapist came in the room and played a song for Jonny, Kathleen said. At that moment, a miracle occurred. “He played that CD and Jon opened his eyes for the first time in four days,” she said. “He looked around the room, took a deep breath and he stopped seizing, and then he closed his eyes again.” Jonny’s oxygen saturation levels rose and Dale said she thought he would have a normal recovery. “I thought this would be the end, I thought I was going to have my brighteyed stinkerpot back and all would be great,” she said. “But that’s not how the story ended.” When Jonny woke up, his eyes were vacant and he couldn’t track objects visually, Kathleen said. He would only stay awake for about 15 seconds. “That was the moment my heart broke because we didn’t have Jon back, and we didn’t have him back for a long time,” she said. Jonny was later diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, which meant constant, uncontrollable seizures — up to 200 a day. Before Jonny went into surgery at the age of 4, he was testing with an above-average IQ. He now has the mentality of a 7-year-old, she said. Still, he’s doing better than many LGS patients. Most are wheelchair-bound and suffer continuously declining health, said Kathleen, who moved with Mervin and their six children from Jacksonville to Fort White in 2006 to be closer to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, where Jonny is under the care of Dr. Paul Carney. Jonny continues to improve each day. “I asked Jon if he wanted to be an artist when he grew up and he said, ‘I am an artist,’” Kathleen said. Jonny now has nearly 20 pieces of art that he has finished and would eventually like to hold an art show to show off his paintings, his mother said. She is even trying to publish a book, “The Story of Jon: God is Gracious,” which is about Jonny’s journey to this point and his art. “The good side of this story is that God is good, and God has healed Jon day-by-day,” she said. “If I had something to say to people, I would say to be happy where you are. You can enjoy life now because it doesn’t have to be perfect to be really good.” Mervin Dale sees the graciousness of God daily in his son. “In the beginning you could have thrown up your hands and given up, but it’s gotten much better,” he said. He referred to Matthew 10:29-31 — “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows” — to put things in perspective. “God’s been good,” Mervin said. “He watches over Jonny like a little bird.” 6A SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2015 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Dr. VuDo you suer from any of these common or other pain conditions?

Potok said it appears there are only two Klan chapters in Florida and the Traditionalist American Knights isn’t one of them. “The only Klan chapters we have listed in Florida is in St. James City, the Ku Klos Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the group called the Loyal White Knights of the Klu Klux Klan and they are in Tallahassee,” he said. Potok said he had no idea the group had Florida ties. The Klan, once a single group, is severely fractured, Potok said. “In the 1920s there was one clan based in Atlanta but now there are a bunch of little competing groups,” he said. Membership is secret and there are no easy tricks to determine who is a member of which Klan group, but Potok described them all as hate groups. Glenel Bowden, former Columbia County NAACP Branch president, said the arrest of three North Florida Klansmen, including one here in Lake City, came as no surprise to him. “I think the Klan is probably more prevalent here than just those three,” he said. “For years the Klan came to Lake City during Black History Month and had rallies, so by them coming to Lake City tells me there is a presence within the Klan in the area and within the prison system.” Bowden said he is uncertain whether Columbia County has an active arm of the Klan operating in the area, but believes there are Klan sympathizers here. He said in the past when the Klan held rallies in town, most of the Klansman that came had out of town license plates on their vehicles. “They had Lake County, Union County, Bradford County and Dixie County tags,” he said. “We’ve never witnessed anybody local there when they came to town, it was always somebody from out of town. But just the same, if they feel comfortable enough to come to Lake City to pass out literature and recruit in Lake City, at least I believe, if you are going to recruit in a community, you’ve got some potential members there or you wouldn’t waste your time coming there. Just from that alone, I believe there are some Klan members in Lake City who are active here.” Bowden confronted KKK members some years back when they held a rally in Lake City. He said the recent arrests will give local residents the chance to speak out against violence and hatred. “I hope that the people in the community who do not identify with the Klan will use this opportunity to renounce the Klan’s activities,” he said. “I think this is an opportunity for the business community, Chamber of Commerce and those who are looking for unity in the community and for the community to be viewed on a positive note to say, ‘This person maybe associated with the Klan, but that does not represent Lake City and Columbia County.’ That kind of statement needs to come from those people who are in leadership positions.” LINKSContinued From 1A Driver Moran Newcomb JONNYContinued From 1AJASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterJonathan Dale holds his painting ‘My Home.’

O’Steen was selected to play in the Florida Athletic Coaches Association North-South All-Star game on March 7 and the YourT Soccer All-Star game in St. Petersburg a couple of weeks later. The Columbia Tiger lost as part of the North team 2-1 in the FACA All-Star Game but was victorious 5-1 on the West squad in the YourT game. “That one was probably my most favorite game ever, my last game ever..it was tons and tons of fun,” O’Steen said. “That was the best I played in the all-star games and winning didn’t hurt either. Winning is always fun.” O’Steen made his way to both all-star games thanks to nominations by Columbia head coach Trevor Tyler. While the YourT game is less known throughout the state, the FACA AllStar Game featured the top seniors throughout Florida who were voted into the game based off nomina tions by their coaches and O’Steen was picked to rep resent Columbia’s district. “He was a wonderful leader..a voice that moved the whole team around defensively,” Tyler said. “He played pretty much in every game every year from his freshman year through his senior year.” The all-star played sweeper for the Tigers this past season and did so as well in the YourT All-Star game. That wasn’t the case in the FACA All-Star Game though, where he was shift ed to left back to accommo date so many top players in the state. “It was different because I haven’t played left back since I was in my sopho more year so trying to tran sition from normally being in the center and not real ly having to mark up and then going back to trying to mark and do different things was kind of tough because I was not used to it but it was just kind of fun doing a different position,” O’Steen said. O’Steen said the speed of the game was much differ ent than any game he had played in before. “Everyone was at their top level, the speed of the game was much quicker FILE Tristan O’Steen dribbles the ball against Fort White last year.

From Wild to Willing By ERIC JACKSON ejackson@lakecityreporter.com Their worst days are behind them. They’ve come a long way from pain and suffering. A couple dozen estranged horses will show the public how far they’ve come during the From Wild to Willing event on May 16 at the Lake City Arena. “Being able to do the things that we’ve done with these horses is amaz ing,” horse trainer Jamie Ogburn said. “They’re just as wild as any mustang.” About a year ago, rough ly 30 horses were seized by the Columbia County Sheriff’s office from the property of a local man. Authorities stormed the 200-acre land that occupied many wild and neglected animals who lived in cruel conditions. Several carcasses were found on his property at the time of his arrest. The seized horses were subsequently auctioned to the public — horses that weren’t purchased were slayed. The harsh ultimatum for these troubled horses inspired Cassy Morgan Lake City Arena scheduled to host rescue competition. WILD continued on 2B Duke to face Wisconsin for national title By AARON BEARD Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — For once, Jahlil Okafor didn’t have to contend with con stant double teams. Instead, Duke’s star freshman found him self with plenty of 1-on-1 opportunities in the first half against Michigan State on Saturday night, helping the Blue Devils’ offense settle into a flow on the way to an 81-61 win in the opening game of the Final Four. The 6-foot-11, 270-pound Okafor finished with 18 points on 7-for-11 shooting, and had six rebounds as part of a balanced offense in a game that belonged to the Blue Devils. Duke will face the win ner of overall No. 1 seed Kentucky and Wisconsin when it tries for its fifth national championship Monday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. Okafor didn’t need to have a huge scoring night, not with Duke (344) shooting 51 percent from the field and causing numerous problems with its ability to spread the floor and penetrate. Still, Okafor was a big component in Duke’s dominant performance. He drew early fouls on defenders Gavin Schilling and Matt Costello. He ran the floor to score on a transition stick-back through a foul. And there was the frequent sight of Okafor palming the bas ketball as though it was a baseball, including once in the second half, when he grabbed a board with his massive hands against Big Ten rebounding leader Branden Dawson. Okafor was coming off two quiet games in last Badgers snap Wildcats’ perfect season at 38-1. TITLE continued on 3B

SCOREBOARD 2B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2015 By DAN GELSTONAssociated Press PHILADELPHIA — With a race car parked on a city sidewalk, Simona de Silvestro shared tales of her ride from European karting all the way to a date in Indianapolis. “I started when I was 6,” she told a group of local Philadelphia students. “It’s funny, when I look at pic-tures now, my helmet was way too big.” Her helmet fits fine these days — one she’ll wear driv-ing for team owner Michael Andretti in the Indianapolis 500. Andretti Autosport has found its fifth and likely final entry for the Indianapolis 500 with the addition of de Silvestro to the lineup. The Swiss-born de Silvestro ran last weekend’s season-open-ing race at St. Petersburg for Andretti and finished 18th. Andretti said he had hoped to add her for the Indy 500, and Thursday announced she’ll drive the No. 29 TE Connectivity Honda. Andretti said outside The Franklin Institute, a science museum, he was working on deals that could add de Silvestro to even more races. “We want to keep her in the car all year, if we can,” Andretti said. “We’re work-ing on it. But the 500 is the big one.” Andretti won the Indianapolis 500 last year with Ryan Hunter-Reay, and will field cars this season for Hunter-Reay, Marco Andretti, Carlos Munoz, Justin Wilson and de Silvestro. “Ryan won last year, so it’s the team you want to be with at the 500,” de Silvestro said. “Hopefully, that’ll put me in the mix right up there with them.” Up first for Andretti is figuring out a way to knock off the Team Penske contenders and have his Hondas get up to speed with the early Chevrolet dominance. The four Penske drivers led every on-track session through the streets of St. Petersburg and qualified 1-2-3-4 in the season opener. Led by race winner Juan Pablo Montoya, Penske fin-ished in four of the top-five spots. “I think they’re a little ahead of us, especially Penske because I think they understand the kit a little more than we do, the Honda teams,” Andretti said. “We were off a bit. We were mainly off to the Penskes. But if you look at the rest of the field, we were a lot closer.” Chevrolet took the top six spots in the debut race for manufacturer-designed aerodynamic bodykits. “I know that our drivers were not happy with the cars, so that means there’s a lot more time to come once we get the right setups,” Andretti said. “There’s no need to panic yet.” Andretti said with a smile his team could sweep the top-five spots at the Indianapolis 500. The 26-year-old de Silvestro will attempt to make her fifth start in Indy. She’s the lone female entered in the race. “It’s always a special feeling,” she said. “Hopefully, we can show what we can do in the race car.” She has one podium finish in 66 career IndyCar races. De Silvestro left IndyCar last season to become a test driver in Formula One, but her funding package fell apart and she’s trying to put together a return to full-time IndyCar racing. She lives out of an Indianapolis hotel waiting for opportunities. “It’s hard to plan stuff,” she said. “You know you might be racing, so you keep working hard.” Her worth ethic was just one quality that impressed Andretti. “She’s the fastest woman driver out there,” Andretti said. “What impressed us, really impressed us, was outside the car. When she was in the debriefs with her teammates, they all were really impressed with her feedback on what the car is doing.” TE Connectivity CEO Tom Lynch didn’t rule out more sponsorship in IndyCar but said the company was interested in involvement with Formula E, a fully electric racing series. Andretti fielded a car in last year’s Indy 500 for 2004 NASCAR champion Kurt Busch in his attempt to complete an IndyCar and NASCAR race on the same day. With Busch’s legal woes hampering a return effort this season, Andretti said he’d eventu-ally like to make another run at The Double with Busch. “We talked, but not about this year,” he said. “We left the door open to try and maybe do some-thing next year.” Andretti adds de Silvestro to Indianapolis 500 lineupTV Listings Today COLLEGE SOFTBALL 3 p.m. ESPN2 — Oregon at UCLA GOLF 9 a.m. TGC — Juniors, Drive, Chip & Putt Championship, at Augusta, Ga. 1 p.m. TGC — PGA Tour, Houston Open, final round, at Humble, Texas 3 p.m. NBC — PGA Tour, Houston Open, final round, at Humble, Texas 5 p.m. TGC — LPGA, ANA Inspiration, final round, at Rancho Mirage, Calif.

Morgan bought the last four horses available in last year’s auction, solely so they wouldn’t be killed. Cassy and Beverly Morgan along with other members of CCRC have ral-lied with the community to turn an unfortunate situa-tion into a prosperous once. But it hasn’t been easy.“They have no handling, touching — nothing,” Ogburn said. “We’re trying to take a wild horse and make it a willing partner.” Over the last two months competitors have worked diligently with their troubled ponies. Those interested in par-ticipating have until April 17 to join. Depending on the horse’s age and health, participants will compete in the In-Hand or Riding Division. While the In-Hand Division is reserved for smaller horses or inexperi-enced riders, judges in the Riding Division will judge on the horse’s ability to perform task asked of him during the event. Both divisions consists of three classes but only riders will be judged during competiton. The event, which is free to the public, will offer priz-es including a new saddle to its winners. CCRC takes pride in being the first riding club in the north Florida area to sponsor such an event. Competitors are required to submit headshots of themselves and a brief biog-raphy of themselves with applications. Applications can be retrieved on CCRC website and should be e-mailed to cassmorgan@windstream.net. Their mission is to bring awareness of neglect and equine abuse to the com-munity.

Check out the new, free JUSTJUMBLE app Ans. here: Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — Former Florida State defen-sive back and NFL draft prosect P.J. Williams was charged with driving under the influence following a traffic stop early Friday morning, police said. A Florida State University police officer pulled Williams over around 3 a.m. after Williams appeared to have difficulty turning out of a McDonald’s parking lot and then keeping his rental SUV in a single lane, an arrest report said. Williams — whose legal name is Kenneth Williams Jr. — reportedly told the officer that he was coming from Recess, a local bar. The officer noted a strong odor of alcohol, along with red eyes, reduced dexter-ity and slurred speech. A records check showed Williams had a suspended license, but Williams told the officer he was unaware of that. Williams refused to submit to a field sobriety test or breathe test, the report said. The officer then arrested Williams and charged him with DUI. Williams was released from Leon County Jail on $500 bail later Friday morning. Jail records didn’t list an attorney. The 21-year-old Williams declared for the 2015 NFL draft after his junior season with the Seminoles. Based on his performance during Florida State’s pro day earlier this week, he was projected by many to go during an early round. Williams was involved in an early morning crash last October, but city of Tallahassee police offi-cers didn’t test him for alcohol. He was issued citations for making an improper left turn and for driving with a suspended license.Former FSU standout P.J. Williams charged with DUI, suspended license

than I was normally used to because [Columbia] was really young this year and everybody where I was [at this game] were seniors so everybody was top skilled. It was really fun though because the speed of the game was quick, the passes were faster and everything. It was a lot, a lot of fun.” As for how O’Steen played individually, well, he thought he held his own. “I thought I played very well,” O’Steen said. “I maintained my side, no one really scored on my side. I felt like I did really well compared to all the other defenses and players.” O’Steen has decided not to pursue soccer in college but will instead focus on becoming a teacher one day. He plans to attend Florida Gateway College to get his asso-ciate’s degree before transferring to a four-year institution. “I know I have the talent [to play soccer], I just don’t know that’s where my heart is,” O’Steen said. “Playing for Columbia was a lot of fun and I got to make a lot of friends and I guess I don’t really have the heart to go play.” Becoming a teacher isn’t exactly a bad second option and O’Steen credits Tyler for inspiring him to head in that direction. “Coach Tyler mentored over me, he was my teach-er for two years and then he coached me so that just kind of opened my eyes because teachers have one of the biggest impact on kids I believe so I would just love to have an impact as a teacher and then one day become a coach like Coach Tyler is and then just coach and teach like him.” Tyler wasn’t surprised at all to hear O’Steen wanted to be a new face in the field of education. “He’s a good guy, he wants to give back,” Tyler said. “Every time we do youth or community ser-vice he’s always involved in it. He’s a good face for what is right in education in student athletics. He’s a good kid and a wonderful person.” SENIOR Continued From Page 1B By MICHAEL MAROTAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS — Paul George is coming back soon-er than expected. The two-time All-Star has been cleared to play Sunday against Miami just eight months after he broke his right leg during a Team USA scrimmage in Las Vegas. He announced his return by tweeting a picture of his game shoes on Saturday morning, and the team then confirmed the news. “We’re happy to have Paul back in uniform, and this is just another step in his rehabilitation from the injury,” president of basket-ball operations Larry Bird said in Indiana’s release. “He has worked hard to get to this point and still has work to do, but it’s a posi-tive step toward what we hope will be a full recovery at some point. His minutes will be limited in games he plays as we evaluate his progress moving forward.” When George was hurt in August, it seemed a foregone conclusion he would miss the entire 2014-15 season. But he returned to full practices Feb. 26 and set a mid-March goal to play in games. It looks as if he is about to achieve that feat. “The recovery has been a long process and this is another step in the process,” George said. “I thank every-one, my family, friends, doc-tors, our training staff, coach-es, the entire Pacers’ family for their support and encour-agement. I’m excited, but at the same time I’m aware I’m still in a rehab stage and will continue to work to get back to full strength.” Before the injury, the 6foot-9, 230-pound George was one of the league’s bright young stars. His scoring aver-age had improved by at least four points in each of his first four NBA seasons, and the swingman was the league’s most improved player for the 2012-13 season. George also led the Pacers to the Eastern Conference finals in 2013 and 2014, los-ing both times to the Heat.

Okafor said Friday he wasn’t disappointed by his performance. Rather, he was excited by the prospects of arriving in Indianapolis with the chance to win a national title, and the knowledge that his team made it to the Final Four when he could have played better. He was certainly prepared for any look Tom Izzo’s club could give him, too. Few teams tried to play him 1-on-1 this year, and instate rivals North Carolina and North Carolina State didn’t just send double teams — they doubled with big men to make it tougher for Okafor to see and pass over the pressure. He had no such trouble Saturday night. Okafor had 10 points on 4-for-6 shooting in the opening half, help-ing the Blue Devils gain momentum after a slow start. And he often made it look easy in the paint, even scoring on a layup while Schilling tugged at the back of his jersey. Okafor’s putback dunk on Justise Winslow’s miss midway through the first half gave Duke its first lead at 18-16. It was part of a 14-2 run in which Okafor had half of his team’s points. Duke never trailed the rest of the way as it advanced to another title game in Indianapolis, where the Blue Devils captured national championships in 1991 and 2010. Title Game : Wisconsin edged Kentucky 71-64 Saturday night. Frank Kaminsky led the Badgers with 20 points and 11 rebounds. TITLE Continued From Page 1B

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2015 Nemesis was an abso lute giant for a Jack Russell Terrier. His parents were the size of Spud Webb, but he was bigger than Shaquille O’Neal. He grew into a 25-pound muscle bound barking machine that was better than any home security system. Anyone (friend or stranger) that showed up at the house he would erupt on them like a Tasmanian devil. If they knocked on our big sliding glass door, it would look like he was going to come through the glass to attack them. Then as soon as they walked in, he’d quit barking, wag his tail, and lick them to death. He never hurt, or bit any one, but if you didn’t know him, he was more intimi dating than a 200-pound German Shepard. This was important because one night while I was gone, we had some shady characters show up at the house. As Andrea watched from the kitchen, they literally tried to walk into our house, got to the door, Nemesis sprung into guard dog mode, and they bolted immediately. It turns out they were out of their minds on drugs, robbing houses and vehi cles daily and nightly in our neighborhood, and ulti mately arrested when they attempted to rob a man fir ing shots at him just a few days later. On the night they came to our door, our oldest daughter, Lilla, was playing just 100-feet away from where they attempted to enter our house. This one story alone made him worth his weight in gold. As tough as he acted, when a storm hit, he turned into a giant scaredy-cat. On one road trip to fish for tarpon off Egmont Key we had to pull over on I-75 during a gully washer with lightning popping like pop corn, because he would not get off my lap and quit shaking. He was terrified to the point I had to pull over, and the fear was tan gible in his eyes. It’s the same feeling I get today when my daughters get scared, it rips your heart out. He just stared right through me, whimpered, and shook. I didn’t think it was possible to feel so much compassion for an animal, but this dog was more than just my dog. He was a part of my family. Speaking of family, when Andrea and I married we moved in together, com bining our possessions, paychecks, and our dogs. She brought Dallas, aka “old man smelly”, her mini Schnauzer to live with us. He was on his last legs, had a wild goatee, a playful per sonality, and an absolute love of his “mother” (Not his biological mother). They grew up with each other. She loved Dallas like a son, and probably more than me – at least on a few occasions. By the time he moved in he could barely see, had a skin condition that gave him the pungent odor of a landfill, but he still had his spirit. Nemesis would playfully bump him, scoot around him at full speed, and Dallas would yelp non-stop with a pierc ing shrill. He eventually went com pletely blind, and Andrea would yell “Bump Bump” anytime he was about to run into something, which happened about every 30 seconds. If we left on a trip, we’d block off a part of the house so Dallas couldn’t bump his way into any trouble. It never failed; somehow Dallas and Nemesis overcame every piece of furniture, gate, and roadblock ultimately gaining free roam of the house. Either someone continued to play a joke on us for years, or Ren and Stimpy continued to out smart us. Eventually Dallas took a trip to Rainbow Bridge, and the only thing that saved Andrea from a broken heart was the fact we had a new baby in the house. Nemesis wasn’t quite the same either. They had spent several year’s together wreaking havoc, marking and re-marking bathroom locations in the yard, and playfully harass ing one another. As years flew by and our family grew, Nemesis grew less patient. That’s a kind way of saying he was turning into a snappy old man. We eventually feared with Molly (our youngest daughter) that he might snap at her, and that pre monition proved to be true, because once Molly started crawling she turned into a 12-pound human wreck ing ball. She grabbed and pulled everything, so I had to make the impossible call to find another home for Nemesis. Luckily I had a good friend, Seth Lane, who offered to take him in while he was away at the University of Florida. So, just like 11 years earlier, Nemesis was going back to college! Seth couldn’t have been a better fit, as it was like looking into a time machine. I let Seth know that anytime he couldn’t keep him, I was available. Over the years he’d come back to visit, and it became a little more depressing each time. My puppy and road warrior was break ing down. He never looked different; his hair never grayed, he never lost his muscle, and that tail still fluttered, but when he’d get out of Seth’s car he moved slower, couldn’t see as well, and he’d lost the spring in his step. I remember the first time he couldn’t even jump on to his spot on the couch. He struggled over and over again you could see the frustration on his face, and he’d whimper from the pain in his hips and back legs. But, once he finally made it up, time stood still. I found my same spot on the far left side of the couch, kicked up the recliner, and he knew what to do. He found his spot on my lap, I rubbed his ears, his tail wagged, and we were right back to two best friends ready to see what life had in store for us.

Lake City Reporter Week of Sun., April 5 Sat., April 11, 2015 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc. Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.com The job description was a per fect fit for Cody Gray, who became the new marketing manager at the Columbia County Tourist Development Council. The position was left vacant for a couple months after the previ ous manager of nearly three years left the position, Gray said. He applied immediately. "When this job became avail able, I absolutely wanted to apply for it because to me it was just a good fit," he said. "I saw the job as a chance to move up and to also move into a new role that had different challenges, different aspects and really be able to get into the marketing, which is what we do here." Gray interviewed in front of a panel of TDC and county staff for the position and was cho sen out of 10 applicants who applied for the position, accord ing to Lisa Roberts, Columbia County human resources direc tor. Gray's new position was effective March 11 and was announced during the last TDC meeting. Before taking the new position, Gray worked as the administrative assistant with the TDC for about a year and in a secretarial position through a temporary agency prior to that, he said. "As administrative assistant, I was able to have a lot of back ground knowledge about the position before it became avail able," he said. "I've also been interested with the TDC long before even I started working here." Gray was born and raised in Columbia County and has been involved with the Blue-Grey Army and the Olustee Festival for numerous years, he said. He has helped them market the event for several years. Also prior to working for the TDC, Gray said he worked for Hunter Printing for a couple years where he was able to gain knowl edge about graphic design and marketing techniques. "I look at it as a public service job to help promote and build a better quality of life for the citi zens of Columbia County, and to bring visitors and tourists from all over the nation and show them what we have here," he said. As the new marketing manager, Gray said he will be working close ly with the Paula Vann, TDC exec utive director, and Kelly Lowrey, TDC sports marketing director, to find fresh angles to help promote the tourism of the county. Gray said his job description includes helping Vann manage the TDC website, helping to build the county's social media sites, creat ing ads that will go into local and national magazines and creating and maintaining relationships with the county and other businesses. Gray said the council has already begun working to create a new image for the county. "Our job here is that when people travel through Columbia County, we want to make them stop and spend that extra day doing something that Orlando can't give you," he said. "Orlando might have theme parks, but we have our own natural theme park." Gray thanked Vann, Lowrey, county staff members, managers and commissioners for the oppor tunity to serve Columbia County in this capacity.

With a traditional IRA, you typically deposit pre-tax money in it and are eventually taxed on your withdrawals in retirement, regardless of any gains or losses that happened along the way. (If you make non-deductible contributions to your traditional IRA, they won’t be taxed when you take them in the form of distributions.) With Roth IRAs, you invest posttax money and eventually withdraw it all tax-free. But you don’t claim losses (or get taxed on gains) in the interim. ***QWhat’s a hostile takeover? — P.L., Marlborough, New HampshireAIn the business world, when one company buys another, it’s typically done with mutual agree-ment. Managers from each company will meet with one another and freely share information about their businesses. Hostile takeovers are different, though, as the company to be bought is not happy about the acquisition and not very coopera-tive. A hostile takeover happens when one company sees some stra-tegic value in another. It may make friendly overtures and be rebuffed. If so, it may then start dealing directly with the target’s share-holders, offering to buy their shares from them for either a certain amount in cash or an exchange of stock. If enough shareholders respond, the acquirer can gain control. In order to entice shareholders, the offer will generally be for a price significantly higher than the target’s current stock price. (Companies whose share prices have slumped are extra-vulnerable to takeovers.) Some famous hostile takeovers include InBev buying Anheuser-Busch, Sanofi-Aventis buying Genzyme and IBM buying Lotus. It’s worth noting that many hos-tile takeover attempts fail, as did Hilton’s 1997 bid for ITT.Got a question for the Fool?

BY UNIVERSAL UCLICK 4/2 End of robust streak raises doubts about job marketBy JOSH BOAKAP Economics WriterWASHINGTON — For months, the U.S. economy’s strength has been flagging. Manufacturing slowed. Fewer homes were built. Cheaper gas failed to ignite consumer spending. Yet month after month, employers kept on hiring vigorously. In March, the economy’s slump finally overtook the job market. Employers added just 126,000 workers — the fewest since December 2013 — snapping a 12-month streak of gains above 200,000. At the same time, the unemployment rate remained at 5.5 percent. The slowdown reported Friday by the Labor Department posed a puzzle to economists: Was the tepid job gain a temporary blip due mainly to a harsh winter and an economy adjusting to much lower oil prices? Or did it mark a return to the middling performance that’s defined much of the nearly 6-year-old recovery from the Great Recession? No one will know for sure until the government’s monthly employment reports later this spring help gauge the direction of the job market. That leaves the U.S. econ-omy — until very recently the envy of other industrialized nations — facing a renewed sense of uncertainty. “We knew less than we thought we did,” said Tara Sinclair, a George Washington University professor and chief economist at Indeed, the job-posting web site. The optimistic view is that much of the weakness will pass. An unseasonably cold March followed a brutal winter that slowed construction and other key sectors. A since-resolved dispute at West Coast ports might have briefly disrupted trade. Last month’s subpar hiring could make the Federal Reserve less likely to start raising interest rates from record lows in June, as some have been anticipating. The Fed might now decide that the economy still needs the benefit of low borrowing costs to generate healthy growth. Reflecting that sentiment, government bond yields fell Friday. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note dropped to 1.84 percent from 1.90 percent before the jobs report was released. U.S. stock markets were closed in observance of Good Friday. Many companies appear to be taking a cautious approach. “Employers aren’t laying people off,” noted Patrick O’Keefe, director of economic research at the accounting and consulting firm CohnReznick. “What they’ve decided to do is slow down the pace at which they’re hiring until they have more confidence.” Last month, the manufacturing, building and govern ment sectors all shed workers. Factories cut 1,000, snap ping a 19-month hiring streak. Construction jobs also fell by 1,000, the first drop in 15 months. Hiring at restaurants plunged from February. The mining and logging sector, which includes oil drilling, lost 11,000. Some other categories managed to extend their gains. Health care added 22,000 workers. Professional and busi ness services — a sector that includes lawyers, engineers, accountants and office temps — gained 40,000. Financial services expanded by 8,000, and retailers maintained their 12-month pace by adding 25,900. In addition to reporting sluggish hiring for March, the government revised down its estimate of job gains in February and January by a combined 69,000. Wage growth remained modest in March as it has for the past six years. Average hourly wages rose 7 cents to $24.86 an hour. That marked a year-over-year pay increase of just 2.1 percent. But because average hours worked fell for the first time in 15 months, Americans actually earned less on average than they did in February. Many Americans remain out of the labor force, partly because many baby boomers are reaching retirement age. The percentage of Americans either working or look ing for work fell in March to 62.7 percent, the lowest such rate since 1978. That trend illustrates that one reason the unemployment rate is low is that many people without jobs are no longer seeking work and so aren’t counted as unemployed. The Fed signaled last month that it would gradually raise rates from record lows. March’s weak hiring could delay an increase until September or later. “I think (June) is completely off the table,” said Carl Tannenbaum, chief economist at the financial services company Northern Trust. Part of the problem is that the cheap oil — which economists say should eventually help consumers — has been a drag on manufacturers. Energy companies have halted orders for pipelines and equipment, hurting sales. At the same time, manufacturers face pressure because of the strengthening dollar. It has made American-made goods costlier abroad, thereby cutting into exports. “From our clients’ perspective, they think we raised our prices 25 percent because the American dollar got so much stronger,” said Drew Greenblatt, president of Maryland-based Marlin Steel. Strong job gains over the past year never quite trig gered higher wages or a larger boom in consumer spend ing. McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, the Gap and other major employers have announced raises for their lowest-paid employees. But those pay raises are staggered and unlike ly to fuel faster wage growth. The economy has disproportionately added lower-pay ing jobs in the retail and restaurant sectors since the economic recovery began in mid-2009. Adding jobs in the lowest-paid industries can suppress average hourly wages, even when employers are rewarding cashiers, waiters and sales clerks with pay bumps. Some maple sap this season headed from tree tap to beer tapBy MICHAEL HILLAssociated PressCHATHAM, N.Y. — The maple sap bubbling away in Ron Davis’ upstate New York sugar house is destined for pancakes, waffles, sweets and — for years now — beer kegs. The local syrup adds a touch of woodsy sweetness to the maple amber beer made by nearby Chatham Brewing, one of a cadre of craft brewers nationwide bridging the gap between tree tap and bar tap. The amount of syrup destined for pint glasses from this spring’s maple run is a relative trickle, but maple beers offer something for the growing numbers of local food lovers and craft beers aficionados. “It’s not sugary or something like a cider,” said Will Richard, drinking a pint with friends at the brewery’s bar near the Massachusetts line. “You have that almost like a hickory taste that you get from maple syrup but just not the overwhelming sweetness of it.” Maple beers fit into an artisanal age that sees craft brewers extracting flavor from bananas, oysters, Sriracha sauce and, inevitably, bacon. Many maple brews are often offered seasonally to coincide with spring maple runs or autumnal leaf falls. In Green Bay, Wisconsin, Hinterland sells its maple bock January through April. Chatham’s maple amber is a year-round offering. And while craft brewers will add syrup at different points in the brewing process, Chatham head brewer Matt Perry pours it into to the maple amber after fermentation so that the syrup flavor comes through. He favors the darker, heavier syrup from later in the run. In Vermont — the woodsy heart of America’s syr up-making belt — brewer Sean Lawson of Lawson’s Finest Liquids has become a sort of maple maestro with brews like Sticky Ale and Maple Tripple Ale, which is brewed with maple sap. “It’s amazing the way the maple flavor carries through to the finished beer,” Lawson said. On a recent day at Chatham Brewing, Perry slowly poured some of Davis’ sticky syrup from a pitcher into a stainless steel carbonation tank, where it dissipated into the bubbling brew. Perry said the maple mixes better with a malty beer as opposed to the assertively hoppy beers popular now among craft drinkers. “This is a really good gateway beer to craft for a lot of folks,” Perry said. “It’s a little bit more agreeable to the palates that aren’t used to craft beer.”

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, APRIL 5 SATURDAY, APRIL 11, 2015 it stood at the end of 2013, while the Standard & Poor's 500 index has climbed 12 percent. To maintain the power to drive Google's direction, Page and Brin initially accumulated virtually all of the company's class "B'' shares, which have 10 votes for each "A'' share. The duo, though, worried that control would erode as Google issued more "A'' shares to pay for acquisitions and reward other workers. A year ago Thursday, Google split its stock to create a new category of "C'' stock with no voting power that would allow more Google shares to be issued without undercutting Page and Brin. Class "A'' shareholders were outraged, skewering the maneuver as a textbook example of shoddy corporate governance. Google argued there wouldn't be much difference between the price of "C'' and "A'' shares because Page and Brin held majority control anyway with the "B'' shares. To settle a class-action lawsuit challenging the split, Google agreed to compensate "C'' shareholders if the average price of "C'' stock fell more than 1 percent below "A'' shares through the first year of trading. Google's theory proved wrong, said BGC Financial Partners Colin Gillis. The difference turned out to be between 1 percent and 2 percent through the first year, though the final gap won't be announced for up to 30 days as Google works with outside experts to determine the figures under a complex formula. "This shows the market does place a value on owning a voting stock," he said. Google disclosed in a recent regulatory filing that it would have owed about $593 million to class C stockholders had the calculations been done on Dec. 31. Based on that estimate, the class C stockholders would receive roughly $1.74 per share in cash or additional stock. The exact amount that Google owes will be calculated based on the average trading prices over the full oneyear period that ended Thursday after the stock market closed. The Mountain View, California, company has until early July to pay the money. It's something that Google can easily afford, given the com pany holds $64 billion in cash. And the dam age could have been a lot worse: Google would have had to pay $7.5 billion, or about $22 per share, had the first-year spread between "A'' and "C'' shares was 5 percent or more. Class C shareholders should ask themselves if the money they are getting is enough to compensate for relinquishing their voting rights and ceding control to Page and Brin, said Charles Elson, director of the University of Delaware's Weinberg center for corporate governance. Shareholders "are getting this cash for giving up their say in effective management," Elson said. "This could be a case of 'penny wise, pound foolish.'" Google declined to comment.

The Columbia County School District and Happy House partnered togeth er to create the art show, which was a part of the 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant, Rucker said. This partic ular grant provides after school and summer pro grams for 105 students within the school district. Approximately 50 first through fifth-grade stu dents participated in the six-week-long unit, and were able to display their art in the library beginning on March 24, she said. “We’re striving to enhance the afterschool experience by having our students focusing on STEAM-realted units where they can improve in their schools,” she said. “Instead of having an end of the year assessments, we had an art show this time.” The art show demon strated four different cat egories of art that were judged by various county and city officials, Rucker said. Now the community has a chance to vote on their favorite piece of art as well. The four categories included: Anonymous Expression, using chalk; Fauvism, using hot and cold colors to describe emotions using tiles and watercolors; American Gothic, using spoofs from the American Regionalist period; and Movement, using bold colored paint and materials such as mar bles, legos, etc. to create an action painting. “The students were able to chose the pictures that stood out the most to them,” said Charis Stone, site coordinator for the 21st Century Program. Various students from each elementary school throughout the county are enrolled at Happy House, Stone said. Each elementa ry school was represented in the art show, with the exception of Fort White Elementary. “The art show began last month, and we’re in the process of judging the art now,” she said. “Not only have the children creat ed their own artwork, but they’ve also participated in field trips and other les sons learning about art.” Local artist Wally Reichert, who has artwork in the Gateway Art Gallery, went to Happy House one Historic art on display S cott doesn’t partic ularly like traveling in the car for any length of time. But when we were in Vegas recently for a REMAX convention, we took a day trip to Valley of Fire. It’s a little over an hour northeast of the strip. Valley of Fire is a Nevada State Park and gets its name from the red sandstone formations in the area. After we left the inter state and were driving on the small two lane road in and out, we drove through the Muddy Mountain region and it looked a lot like the desert should. Scott commented that he was waiting for the big “ah ha” moment and hoped he wasn’t disappointed. Shortly after our photo stop at the entrance of the park, just around the bend he had it. The large red rock landscape took hold. He was happy now. Our first pull out and stop was at the beehives, which were unusual sand stone formations eroded by wind and water. We climbed out over some of the formations and under some arches that were carved out for photos. The coloring was amazing. A lot of the park reminded me of some past trips where I visited the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest and Arches National Park, or even the Colorado National TRAVEL TALES Sandy KishtonValley of Fire Students’ work focuses on major world events.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2015 3D DEAR ABBY: We have two granddaughters who will be going to college soon. We are in a position to help them with expens es, but we are asking you if we should. We put our daughter through college, and she has a career in the medi cal field. Her husband has a part-time, low-paying job and has shown no ambi tion to find other employ ment to assist with college expenses for the girls. He’s into electronics, and when he wants a new item, he has our daughter work overtime to buy it for him and she does! He has told our granddaughters they must pay for their own education because that’s what he had to do, although he never grad uated. (His father told us it isn’t true — that they would have helped.) We have helped them out financially over the years, which of course enables our son-in-law to not improve himself. We realize that they quite often play us and think we are too ignorant to realize we are being taken advantage of. I believe that further education for their girls is a no-brainer because we want them to be able to support themselves, but where should we draw the line? — GRANDMA IN TROY, OHIO DEAR GRANDMA: Stand pat before writing any checks; look at your granddaughters’ grades and ask yourselves if they take after your daughter or her husband. If they take after him, they may be more interested in a trade school instead. Depending upon their ambition and aptitude, they may qualify for scholarships or student aid. They could also get part-time jobs to help pay for books or tuition, which would help them to grow into indepen dent young women. By now it should be apparent that it’s time to draw the line. If you decide to pay for your granddaughters’ edu cation, be sure that any money they’ll be getting goes to the school. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 21-year-old female living in Washington, D.C. Today, while on the Metro com ing home from work, a group of eight high school kids hopped on, excited about what they had in their backpacks. After they sat down across the aisle from me, I saw they were pulling handfuls of clothing out of their backpacks and attempting to take the sen sors off the clothes. I heard a couple of them exclaim how excited they were about their new clothes, and one of the boys said, “I’m never paying for any clothes ever again.” Now I feel guilty that I didn’t report anything to the authorities, or at least tell the boys the consequences of their actions weren’t worth the possible repercussions. However, because I was a female traveling alone at sunset, I didn’t want to involve myself in a possi bly dangerous situation. What would your advice be on how to handle this encounter should it hap pen again? — METRO RIDER DEAR RIDER: You handled the situation correctly. If you are ever again alone in a situation in which you feel unsafe, particularly if you are out numbered by individuals you think are up to no good, you should get away as quickly and quietly as possible. P.S. If you have any idea where the clothes may have come from, call the store and the police and tell them what you saw. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Opportunities are pres ent, but you have to go after them. Apply for positions of interest and add a unique twist to your resume that will make you stand out. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Re-evaluate your personal and professional positions. If you aren’t happy with the way things are going, consider your options. Check out what you need to learn in order to follow your dreams, hopes and wishes. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can choose to offer up information or gather it instead. The biggest benefits will come from what you learn, not from teaching oth ers. Make space at home to encourage yourself to expand your knowledge. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a break and keep your thoughts to yourself. You need time to rejuve nate and to reconsider your course of action before you put any plan into motion. Pampering will be in your best interest, and self-im provement projects will reduce stress. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Step up and speak up. You can make a difference if you are passionate about your beliefs. It’s best to find out where you stand so that you can avoid future confronta tions. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Prepare to make the personal changes you’ve been contemplating. You’ll be happy with the results you get and the responses you receive. An investment can help stabilize your life and raise your standards of living. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be very careful how you handle friends, family and partners. Diplomacy, integrity and patience will put you in a position that is conducive to getting what you want. Don’t be afraid to experiment and do things differently. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Focus on what you want and don’t stop until you have figured out how to get your way. Change is in the stars and will result in an interest ing turn of events. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will have the upper hand regarding matters that affect your home or community. Speak up, but don’t exaggerate or use false information to win favors.

benefiting the environment. These fungi, or mushrooms, are known to decompose difficult strands of cellulose in decaying plant material. They are not harmful to landscape plants or grasses. In fact, by helping decompose mulch and other organic material, they help release nutrients into our infertile, sandy soils. Stinkhorns start out as white, egg-like structures growing in mulch or decaying material. After that nice rain, the “eggs” expand and rupture, allowing the stinkhorn form to emerge. There are different types of stinkhorns, each with an unusual shape and color. Most are bright pink, orange or red-orange in color and have shapes resembling lattice, arches or arms. There are no chemicals labeled to control these nuisance fungi, but there are several ways you can manage them. If you see them appear in the pre-stinky, egg-like stage, remove, bag and dispose of them. At least this will keep them from maturing and spreading spores on the wind. If you decide to dispose of them in the smelly stinkhorn stage, use a shovel and wear gloves to remove the mushroom along with a clump of mulch. Place the mass in an air-tight plastic bag and discard in the garbage. Better yet, do nothing and they will disappear in one or two weeks. Another strange site often appearing in mulch is a type of mold called “dog vomit.” When first noticed in the plant bed, this mold might have homeowners thinking they have a sick animal in the vicinity. This slime mold also helps with the decomposition of organic material like mulch. The spores may have come with the mulch, but they could just as well been blown there by wind from another site. However it got there, don’t worry, because it’s not harmful or poisonous. You can wait it out as it turns brown and hardens, or you can lift the clump from the mulch and throw in the trash. I’ve had good results by taking a shovelful of mold and mulch and flipping it over. Out of sight, out of mind. Homeowners are always bringing samples of lichens to the office for identification. Lichens are a combination of fungi and algae that live together, produce their own food and are often found on branches and trunks of trees. They are another example of strange looking organisms that cause no harm to our landscape plants. There are many kinds of lichens in many shapes and colors. Some lichens can be very beautiful and add to the interest of plants in the landscape. Mark your calendar for our UF/IFAS Extension workshop “Flowering Trees and Shrubs”.

All just as beautiful, but this time sharing it with Scott. We picked one hiking trail to tackle. It was called the Fire Wave and takes about an hour and not recommended in high temperatures. Fortunately, it was early March and the temperatures were just about perfect for a day like this. It started out going downhill on some soft sand much like being on the beach. Then we took a turn up through some rocks and back down a steep decline through two large boulders. Scott actually had to duck his head to get through. From here it wound its way around through more sand and rock. The rocks were all red in varying colors. When we reached the end, we really weren’t sure we were even there if it weren’t for some other hikers coming back. The “wave” looked almost like a rainbow of red, white and pink colors striated across the rock’s surface. Typically the means to the end is worth it for the view, but in this case I felt like the end was not as great as the journey. I enjoyed all of the color around me reflecting off the blue sky we had that day. When it was time to go we decided to go out through the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I didn’t realize that Scott had never seen Lake Mead in all the visits to Las Vegas. He had not seen Hoover Dam either. I was really shocked. I guess he needs to come off the golf course more often and see what else this beautiful country has to offer. I saw it as a challenge to get him out more with me; one I will succeed at.

Students have their artwork displayed in the library for the public to vote on until Monday, Stone said. On Tuesday, the votes will be counted and four winners, one from each category, will be chosen to be displayed in the Gateway Art Gallery. On Tuesday from 5-6:30 p.m., there will be a meet and greet reception to announce the winners, she said. The winners will be announced at 6:15 p.m. “Everyone from the community is invited to attend the reception,” Rucker said. “This was an eye-opening experience to see how artistic our kids are, and they really learned so much through this unit.” The students will begin their next eight-weeklong unit of learning on Monday, which includes building models of theme parks, Rucker said. The students will create a theme park based on the components of the community, and then they will have to convince the public why their theme park would be a success. COURTESYStudents at Happy House Daycare ask questions of Wallace Reichert from Gateway Art Gallery during his recent visit. ART SHOWContinued From 1D Let’s say you’ve made the decision that college is right for you. And, obviously, since you know there is no better choice than Florida Gateway College, you decide to begin or continue your education with us. First, let me thank you for making this hypothetical decision – we here at Florida Gateway College strive to provide the best educational opportunities available and we know you won’t regret your choice of college. But now that you’ve made that decision, what’s next? You obviously don’t just walk into a classroom and begin taking notes. I mean, you could, but I have no doubt our professors would eventually notice you aren’t a student. We always talk about, “Start Here, Go Anywhere” – it’s something of a slogan for us – but what does “Start Here” really mean? If you want to become a student at Florida Gateway College, where do you begin? That answer would be our Admissions Office, located in Building 015. Of course, it isn’t as easy as walking up to the window and saying, “I’d like to attend Florida Gateway College.” Trust us, we’re with you – we wish it were that simple! But the State of Florida requires a number of items that must be presented with an application, and you know laws aren’t exactly something we can ignore. So, what do you need to bring with you? A proof of identification is a good start – preferably a government-issued photo ID such as your driver’s license, or something along those lines to prove you are who you say you are – and, of course, the application itself. We also need your official high school transcripts or high school equivalency transcript (GED), and official college transcripts, if applicable. For students who were homeschooled, an FGC home education completion affidavit is required. Let me stress the word “official” here – these have to be requested from these institutions and provided to FGC in a sealed, unopened envelope and/or may be submitted electronically by the sending institution. Seal broken? Do you just have copies of your diploma or transcript? Sorry, neither of those will cut it! Now, we do have programs that don’t require high school completion, but if you’re looking for Financial Aid assistance, high school completion and the transcripts are required. And here are a few other things to remember: Be prepared to go ahead and declare a major. Sure, you may not know exactly what you want to attend college for – remember, we just made that decision a few paragraphs ago – but your major can be changed at any time. That’s why we have advisors! If you’ve attended FGC in the past, but haven’t attended a class in the past year, you do have to enroll again. Or, if you were a dual enrollment student and plan on returning as a full-time college student, you’ll have to re-apply. Sorry! If you plan on receiving in-state tuition rates, you’ll also need to bring proof of Florida residency. You can visit the FGC website for more information on Florida residency requirements. A lot of this can be done online at www.fgc. edu, but we know there are a lot of people who would prefer that face-toface experience! We know this process can be daunting, especially if you have never attended before. We also know that no two students are the same – there are many non-traditional and distinctive lives out there, so the enrollment process will be different for some students than the others. But that’s why we have a helpful, engaging staff to make sure you are enrolled and are soon on the career path of your choice. And your timing couldn’t be more perfect – we are actually enrolling for the Summer and Fall semesters right now, so it’s not too late to start your education at Florida Gateway College. There are three Summer semesters, each having a different start and/or end date. It can be a little confusing, but here are your deadlines for the summer semesters, along with the class schedule. Summer A. Deadline is April 29, 2015. Classes begin May 11 and end June 22. Summer C. Deadline is April 29, 2015. Classes begin May 11 and end August 6. Summer B. Deadline is June 17, 2015. Classes begin June 25 and end August 6. Simple enough? And yes, while you do have a few weeks to enroll for the Summer A and Summer C semesters – and even longer for Summer B – remember this: registration starts this week, on April 8, and classes are limited. So, if you wait until April 29 to apply for admission, there’s a chance one of the classes you need may be full! Now you’re now ready to make that first step into your continued education! Call the Admissions Office at (386) 754-4236 to get started! And if you’re interested in setting up a guided tour of campus, please call (386) 754-4246.

NYC board: High-rent-tenants gym may be discriminatoryBy JENNIFER PELTZAssociated PressNEW YORK — An apartment house where only high-paying tenants can use the gym may be illegally discriminating, city human rights officials said this week amid debate over luxury buildings with separate amenities — or even doors — for residents of affordable apartments. The Human Rights Commission said in a notice filed Thursday that there’s enough evidence of age discrimination to merit a hearing on the Stonehenge Village complex’s fitness room. The rent-regulated tenants excluded from the gym are largely over 65, while market-rate tenants aren’t, according to a complaint last year from tenants’ association president Jean Green Dorsey. Dorsey said being barred from using the exercise room smacked of second-class citizenship for the rent-stabilized tenants who occupy about 60 percent of the more than 400 apartments in the complex on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. She said Friday she was hopeful the landlord would now let rent-stabilized tenants pay a reasonable fee to use the gym and have it continue to be free for their higher-rent neighbors. Dorsey said tenants previously offered to do that but were rebuffed, spurring her complaint. “You really shouldn’t have to do all this to live a happy life,” said Green Dorsey, 75, who has lived in the building since 1972. The landlord, Stonehenge Partners Inc., had no immediate comment Friday. Stonehenge Partners has said the gym was built last winter to entice market-rate tenants. “Any impact on rent-regulated tenants arises out of their length of tenancy in the building,” not their age, “and involves that person’s choice to remain in a rent-regulated unit at lower rent,” the landlord’s lawyer, Jerrold Goldberg, wrote in a filing last year. While city law prohibits discrimination based on age, it’s silent on the subject of rent-regulation status. Stabilized tenants get valuable benefits of their own, like lower rent, Goldberg noted. The building’s courtyard, laundry room and some other amenities are open to all residents. Stonehenge Village is among several New York buildings that have spurred an outcry over separate entrances for lower-paying residents — dubbed “poor doors” — or playrooms, roof decks and other amenities reserved for market-raters. Galled by seeing such arrangements in developments that often enjoy tax and zoning breaks for including affordable housing, some officials have sought to require more equal treatment.
