Elizabeth Porter that could prevent tragedy when autistic youngsters wander from home has passed unanimously in the House of Representatives. House Bill 69 would provide caregivers of children with autism and related disorders with electronic â€œpersonal search-and-rescue devicesâ€ to help locate them when they go missing. The legislation was sparked by the disappearance last summer in Live Oak of 9-year-old Leo Walker, whose body was later found by searchers. The project will be developed and administered by the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities at the University of Florida and will be offered on a voluntary basis to those that qualify. The bill directs CARD UF to select participants on a first-come, first-served basis to receive a personal device to aid in search and rescue based on criteria it develops. â€œThis pilot program will allow the state, with the assistance of the CARDUF program and local law enforcement agencies, to implement and then evaluate the success of personal search-and-rescue devices for special needs individuals that have eloped. These BILL continued on 5A Would provide devices to help find missing kids.â€˜America is Sleeping,â€™ says NAACPBy NICK ROLLISONSpecial to the ReporterThe Lake City branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People held its 33rd annual Freedom Fund luncheon Saturday after noon. The event, the theme of which was Pursuing Liberty in the Face of Injustice, was a chance for the NAACP to engage with the community and its members. Presiding over the banquet was Master of Ceremonies Marlon Ivey, NAACP Acting Secretary Fredrick Adams, Former Columbia County School Board member and event key speaker Linard Johnson, and NAACP Second Vice President Delerria Rentz. Officers from the Columbia County Sheriffâ€™s Office were in attendance, as were city officials like District 10 Council Member Eugene Jefferson and Columbia County Public Defender Blair Payne.

By TODD WILSONtwilson@lakecityreporter.comGrace Elizabeth Harry has made the most of her senior year of high school. Several trips to New York, Los Angeles and two foreign countries. Weeks spent working in Miami Beach. Posing, smiling, wearing the latest fashions. In one year, sheâ€™s gone from a shy Lake City girl with a dream to walking the fashion runways of some of the worldâ€™s most spectacular showcases. â€œGrace Elizabeth,â€ as sheâ€™s known professionally, is one of the worldâ€™s top rising fashion models. Last Monday, she was announced as â€œThe New Face of GUESS for 2015-2016,â€ a designation that vaults her toward the top of the fashion world. She is the cover model for the GUESS summer collection fashion catalog that was released worldwide last week. The catalog is available in GUESS stores around the globe and the images will also be used in magazine, billboard and store banner advertising. The first full-page advertisements featuring Grace are on newsstands now in the May issue of Elle, Vanity Fair and Teen Vogue, as well as several European magazines. Grace Elizabeth is famous. â€œMy mom and I both just screamed when we found out I was on the cover,â€ Grace said last week, as she took a few days off at home between assignments. â€œWe had been crossing our fingers for this and our agency had been working on it. Things just came together and Iâ€™m so thankful.â€ She saw the GUESS catalog for the first time while eating dinner with other GUESS models in the small town of Todos Santos, Mexico. One copy of the publication was being passed around among the photography crew, then the models and there it was in iconic black and white. â€œI love the pictures. I think they look amazing and Iâ€™m very honored to be the New Face of GUESS for 2015-2016,â€ Grace said. â€œItâ€™s just hard to believe.â€ A year ago, Grace was a traditional Columbia High School junior, a good student and a member of the CHS volleyball team. She thought about modeling and approached The Golden Needle bridal and prom dress boutique about the details. Quickly, she was posing in dresses and in front of the lens of the late photographer Bill Potts. Potts photographed Grace in last springâ€™s fashion show, then helped her assemble a portfolio for marketing her talents to agencies. Grace credits Potts with first making her comfortable in front of a camera and giving her advice on modeling. Potts also worked with the Lake City Reporter on two projects and photographed Grace for the May/June 2014 cover of Currents magazine and for the cover of the Reporterâ€™s 2015 Guide to Lake City and Columbia County.The face of GUESSColumbia High School senior named cover model for companyâ€™s summer fashion catalog.â€˜My mom and I both just screamed when we found out I was on the cover.â€™â€” Grace Elizabeth Harry Porter Looking back at 20151BSEE SPORTS, NICK ROLLISON/Lake City ReporterFormer school board member Linard Johnson addresses attendees at the 33rd annual Freedom Fund luncheon Saturday in Lake City.

NEW YORK I n the 1970s, Bruce Jenner was a symbol of American masculinity as an Olympic champion. Nearly 40 years later, in an extraordinary televi sion interview, Jenner told the world that he identifies as a woman and has felt gender confusion since he was a little boy growing up in the New York suburbs. Jenner let his hair down Â— literally loosening a ponytail and letting his hair flow past his shoulders Â— in a symbol ic moment at the start of his two-hour interview with ABC NewsÂ’ Diane Sawyer that was televised Friday. Â“Yes, for all intents and purposes, I am a woman.Â” For the transgender community, it was a moment as significant as Ellen DeGeneresÂ’ coming out as a lesbi an was for gays nearly 20 years ago. DeGeneres tweeted support to Jenner, saying the former Olympian was Â“sav ing lives and opening minds.Â” Â“My whole life has been getting me ready for this,Â” said Jenner, 65, known to a younger generation as the patriarch of televisionÂ’s omnipresent Kardashian clan. Â“ItÂ’s not just the last few years as theyÂ’ve been treating me as a joke.Â” The interview was filmed in February in Los Angeles and New York, before a fatal car accident in which Jenner was involved. The Nielsen company said an audience of just fewer than 17 million people saw the interview.Time magazine longtime film critic Corliss dies at 71 NEW YORK Â— Richard Corliss, the longtime film critic for Time magazine, has died after suffering a major stroke last week, the magazine said Friday. He was 71. Â“He conveyed nothing so much as the sheer joy of watching movies Â— and writing about them,Â” Time theater critic Richard Zoglin said in an online tribute to Corliss. Â“He was a perceptive, invaluable guide through three and a half decades of Hollywood films, stars and trends.Â” In his 35 years as the magazineÂ’s film critic, Corliss wrote more than 2,500 reviews and other articles. Time Editor Nancy Gibbs called Corliss a master of the written word. Words Â“were his tools, his toys, to the point that it felt sometimes as though he had to write, like the rest of us breathe and eat and sleep,Â” she said. Â“His prose was zestful and spar kling Â— it simply jumped off the page,Â” Zoglin said. He said Corliss had an encyclopedic knowledge of film and its place in cine matic, cultural and American history. His reviews were Â“authoritative but never intimidatingÂ” and his tastes Â“pop ulist but eclectic,Â” ranging from Chinese kung fu and Disney animation to films by Ingmar Bergman and Werner Herzog. Photographer settles in suit against Justin Bieber MIAMI Â— Pop star Justin Bieber has reached a settlement with a photogra pher who claimed he was assaulted by the singerÂ’s bodyguard outside a South Florida recording studio. Attorney Mark DiCowden confirmed the settlement Friday between his cli ent, photographer Jeffrey Binion, and Bieber. DiCowden said terms of the agreement are confidential. Binion filed the lawsuit in 2013 seek ing unspecified damages. The photog rapher said he was roughed up while shooting pictures from a sidewalk out side the studio. The 21-year-old Bieber has had several run-ins with celebrity photographers, known as Â“paparazzi.Â” Bieber pleaded guilty last summer to reckless driving and resisting arrest fol lowing a Miami Beach incident in which he and a friend were accused of racing exotic sports cars. 2A SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2015 DAILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 DAYTONA BEACH A DeLand man who once owned as many as 50 gas stations has been sentenced to federal prison after being convicted two years ago on wire fraud. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reports that 57-year-old Stephen DeLuca was sentenced Friday to 6 Â½ years in federal prison following his 2013 convic tion on wire fraud charges. The prosecutor had been ask ing for 11 to 14 years in prison. DeLuca is scheduled to surren der in June. DeLuca was indicted in 2011, charged with falsely inflating the value of his company to secure $18 million in loans. DeLuca also owned three stor age facilities and dozens of other properties.Frat suspended for harassing veterans GAINESVILLE Â— A University of Florida fraterni ty has been suspended after reports that some of its mem bers harassed wounded military veterans vacationing recently in Panama City Beach. Zeta Beta Tau fraternity has been charged by the univer sity with offenses including yelling and spitting at vets last weekend. UF said the univer sity has charged the fraternity with Â“causing physical or other harm, obscene behavior, public intoxication, theft and damage to property.Â” An investigation by school officials is ongoing. Panama City Police responded to the incident and no charges were filed. UF policies establish standards of conduct for individuals and orga nizations, and the university said in a statement that officials are addressing the situation through appropriate channels. The school said the fraternity is currently on probation for haz ing during the fall semester, and as a result faces stiffer penalties if found to be in violation of that probation. Three students have been expelled from the fraternity since the Panama City Beach incident was reported.Mitt Romney says to graduates: Get a life JACKSONVILLE Â— Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney had a message Saturday for Jacksonville University grad uates: Get a life. The 2012 Republican presiden tial nominee told the nearly 900 students earning degrees that life isnÂ’t measured in riches and professional achievement, but in friendships and family, learning and work, faith in God and ser vice to others. Â“Get a life, have a life, live your life in full. Embrace every fruitful dimension of life that you possibly can,Â” Romney said during the 22 minute commence ment address delivered under overcast skies and sprawling oak trees. In a speech that focused on life and not politics, Romney told the students to continue to learn and grow, and to even expect failures. Â“I am asked what it felt like to lose to President Obama. Well, not as good as winning. Failures arenÂ’t fun, but they are inevita ble. More importantly, failures donÂ’t have to define who you are,Â” Romney said.Former foster kid on Rachael Ray show TALLAHASSEE Â— A former Florida foster kid and her men tor were featured on the Rachael Ray Show this week. Tashana Shields is a sopho more at Florida State University who is raising money to buy a car to help her get to class. Shields lived in a group home in Palm Beach County as a teen. Only a small number of foster youth attend college, but Shields become intent on getting her col lege diploma after visiting FSU in high school. She works part time and recently received a scholarship to move into the ChildrenÂ’s Home Society of FloridaÂ’s homes. The student residence helps young adults formerly in foster care transition to adulthood. Her mentor Denise Wilson also appeared on the show. SheÂ’s spearheading a GoFundMe fund raising campaign to buy Shields a car. The Tallahassee Democrat reports sheÂ’s raised $2,700 of the $5,000 goal.House explosion seems to be suicide SARASOTA Â— Officials say a southwest Florida home explo sion that left one man dead appears to be a suicide. The state fire marshalÂ’s office reported Thursday that a Â“gas vapor explosionÂ” destroyed the three-bedroom Sarasota house in February. After firefighters extinguished the blaze, investi gators found the body of 46-year-old Erick Szakacs. Officials believe the explosion originated from the houseÂ’s garage, where Szakacs had been sitting in a pickup truck. SzakacsÂ’ attorney said his client had pleaded no contest to a DUI charge nine days before his death. HOW TO REAC H USMain number ....... .

I work long hours and a lot of weekends, but I love every minute of it.â€ The award is based on the volume of sales produced throughout the year, she said. Zecher completed 115 transactions in 2014. â€œBeing number five in the state of Florida, while being in Lake City is amazing,â€ she said. As the average price of a home sold in Lake City is around $125,000-$130,000, Zecher said she has to compete with other agents in larger cities where the average price of a house is much higher. â€œI love educating people on why they should move to Lake City,â€ she said. â€œItâ€™s more than just buying a house, itâ€™s everything that goes into making one of the biggest financial commitments theyâ€™ll ever make.â€ When the housing market began to fail in 2006, Zecher was a stay-at-home mother and helped her husband, Bryan Zecher, with his construction business. A year later, she decided it was time to start working and went to school to become real estate agent, she said. â€œIt was tough going to Realtor school at a time when the economy was down, but I stayed with it,â€ she said. Zecher has been the leading RE/MAX agent in residential sales for the last five years, she said. She was inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame last year for her sales in 2013. â€œI have an amazing broker named Gary Thomas, who is very supportive,â€ she said. â€œHe teaches a lot of leadership skills and teaches us how to own our businesses. Through his guidance and the Lordâ€™s, in a downturn market, I was able to build my business.â€ Zecher moved to Lake City more than 20 years ago when she met her husband, Bryan, and has since had two children, Christian, 16, and Jacob, 14, she said. Zecher and her family continue to stay involved in the community. As Zecher continues to make a name for herself in Lake City, she said that a great majority of her business is now due to referrals. â€œI donâ€™t view myself as a salesperson,â€ Zecher said. â€œPeople are going to buy or sell a home no matter what, and they need someone whoâ€™s going to work very hard for them, look after them and make sure the transaction is done correctly. They need someone they can trust.â€Local realtor No. 5 in state for sales ZecherBy NICK ROLLISONSpecial to the ReporterA man and two women from Austin, Texas were arrested Thursday for having fraudulent credit cards in their possession, according to a Florida Highway Patrol arrest report. Jose Alfredo AcevedoAlonso, 33, faces charges of fraud, passing forged credit cards and passing counterfeit credit cards. Mercedes AcevedoAlonso, 31, faces charges of fraud, illegal use of credit cards and passing forged credit cards. Yainelys Haydee Zayas-Guzman, 24, faces charges of fraud, illegal use of credit cards and passing forged credit cards. The three were eastbound on I-10 in a gold 2005 Chevy Impala shortly after 2 a.m. when they were stopped for two unspecified traffic violations, the report says. The trio, smoking freshly lit cigarettes, appeared nervous and a K-9 unit called to the scene alerted officers to the exterior of the Chevy, where a search of the vehicle turned up 25 credit cards/gift cards, 18 of them fraudulent, the report says. The cards were found hidden in the driverâ€™s seat and in a pack of cigarettes. Some were in suspectsâ€™ wallets. According to the report, Jose Acevedo-Alonso later told troopers that he knew some of the cards were fraudulent, having purchased them from an individual in Texas. Mercedes Acevedo-Alonso told troopers that her purse had been previously been stolen at a party, and that it had been returned several days later with the counterfeit cards, although she was unaware the cards were fraudulent. The three suspects were booked into the Columbia County Detention Center, where they remained at press time. 3 charged with fraud for 18 fake credit cardsTROOPERS: Acevedo-Alonso Acevedo-Alonso Zayas-Guzman eventgoers. By far the most spirited part of the event was Johnsonâ€™s speech, the central theme of which was â€œAmerica is Sleeping.â€ Johnson, a middle school teacher and a pastor, had a bible on the podium in front of him as he explained that it was time for America to pay more attention to the current social and racial issues that are happening in the nation and urged that violence should not be answered with violence. â€œYou know, we got to wake up in America and feel a lot more responsible for our actions and a lot more supportive of each other then we have been because times are kind of turbulent,â€ Johnson said after his speech. â€œAnd so if we donâ€™t see the wisdom and not using means to try to resolve conflict with I think weâ€™re using...we can find ourselves quite divided in this country and we donâ€™t need to be divided.â€ FREEDOMContinued From 1A NICK ROLLISON/Lake City ReporterCar seat safetySafe Kids for North Florida held a child seat safety inspection from 2-4 on Saturday at the Florida Highway Patrol Station.

Marqui Montez Church, 29, of 552 Granger Mill, was booked Thursday on charges of kidnapping, sexual assault, battery and false imprisonment, jail records show. He is being held without bond in the Columbia County Detention Facility. James Lauvalle Harris, 21, same address, was taken into custody March 9 on the same charges. He also remains jailed without bond. Authorities say the men are part of a looseknit group engaged in human trafficking here. The number of victims is unclear as are the identities of other possible members of the ring. Sheriff Mark Hunter said more arrests are possible. â€œIf we find enough evidence to charge additional suspects, we will,â€ he said Saturday. Church and his sister, Germetrica Church, 25, Lake City, were arrested on suspicion of auto theft March 7 in Baker County after being spotted in the car of a Lake City woman allegedly kidnapped and raped at his home. Harris, identified by the victim as one of the men who abducted her, told deputies that when the victim was brought to the home she said she wanted to leave to return to her children, the sheriffâ€™s report said. A family member told deputies the victim missed her daughterâ€™s birthday due to the abduction. Harris told deputies that at one point Church â€œstarted arguing, telling the victim that he doesnâ€™t get as much money for her as she thinks,â€ the report says. â€œ[Harris] advised [Church] said he only gets $20 to $30 for selling the victim.â€ Harris told deputies â€˜the victims are scared to leave because [Church] threatens them,â€ the report says.
W e were saddened to see the consummate govern ment watchdog, Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., resign his seat in December due to a recurrence of prostate cancer. Coburn was famed for his annual Wastebook report, the final version of which, in 2014, con tained 100 examples of government waste totaling $25 billion. But perhaps Congress has found someone to take up CoburnÂ’s watch dog mantle. This month, freshman Republican Rep. Steve Russell, also from Oklahoma, released his first Â“Waste WatchÂ” report. It offers 10 examples of government waste total ing more than $117 million. Examples include the nearly $700,000 spent by the National Science Foundation to help amateur moviemakers produce Â“cinematic movies created by manipulating ava tars in 3-D computer game worlds,Â” and the $559,000 the U.S. Agency for International Aid provided over two years to teach Moroccan teenagers Â“public speaking, team building and conflict mitigation techniquesÂ” in an attempt to keep them from becoming violent political extremists (basically, the anti-terrorism version of inner-city midnight basketball programs). Then there are the 6.5 million Social Security accounts still active for peo ple who would be at least 112 years old Â–Â– on paper, anyway. A number of military-related items made the list, which should remind members of Congress, particularly Republicans, that the military is no more efficient with taxpayer dollars than the rest of the government, and that there are plenty of ways to reduce defense spending without Â“endangering our troops.Â” Consider the U.S. militaryÂ’s $456,669 contract to build a training facility for the Afghan Special Police that started disintegrating in the rain after four months because its bricks were made mostly of sand. Or the $15.4 million the Department of Defense spent in 2013 to store more than 500,000 items not used for at least five years. Examples include $21,000 to house a set of gears for an aircraft carrier that is no longer active and more than $8,000 to store for seven years a component of a power mast worth only $391. Depressing as these cases are, it is heartening to know that someone in Congress still has the gumption to uncover and publicize them. After all, spotlighting waste is the first step toward eliminating it.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Emily Lawson, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman Model is going places, but roots remain here T he first time I met Grace Elizabeth was in the front lobby of the Lake City Reporter. She wore a camo T-shirt, faded jeans and boots. Her Costa cap was on backward. If she was wearing makeup, it was so light I didnÂ’t notice. She had driven to our office in a pickup truck, ready to talk about this modeling thing. That was last April.Grace and her mother, Toni Cabe, were connected to me through my friend and amazing portrait pho tographer, the late Bill Potts. Potts called me and said he had been introduced to this young lady who had expressed an interest in being a model. She had walked into The Golden Needle and talked with Ericka Cook, who wouldnÂ’t let her leave the store without promising she would give modeling a try. Potts had done some basic portfolio test shots, seen Grace in a local fashion show, and he was impressed. Â“She has the look, the drive, and the family support behind her,Â” Potts said at the time. Â“SheÂ’s got it.Â” We were fortunate to have Grace Elizabeth on the cover of our May/June 2014 issue of Currents, our summer cruising fun issue, where Grace posed standing in a Jeep, looking into the wind at sunset. Potts shot this setting and, sensing that Grace was destined for star dom, we quickly worked together on the cover shot for the 2015 Guide to Lake City and Columbia County. Grace posed in a field of wildflowers for that cover project and her story is featured inside the magazine. Around the same time in the spring of 2014, Grace Elizabeth quickly signed with NEXT Model Management, and started smiling for cameras in Miami Beach, New York City, South America and Los Angeles. In her first year as a pro fessional model, she accomplished what few models do in a lifetime. The diligence paid off last Monday when Grace was named Â“The New Face of GUESS for 2015-2016.Â” ItÂ’s an international recognition that means she is on the cover of their summer collection catalog and her image represents the GUESS brand on billboards and banners in the stores worldwide. You can read the details on todayÂ’s front page. She was back in our front lobby on Tuesday, arriving in the same pickup truck, giving thanks to God for her success, the same happy, smiling down-to-earth girl that first appeared a year ago. SheÂ’s still extremely polite, Â“yes sir,Â” Â“no sir,Â” and she admits the past year has been a whirlwind, but one that exists in a separate world away from Lake City. She talked a lot about her grand mother, Betty Harless of White Springs. She keeps in daily contact with her either through texts or calls and she talks fondly of all the time she has spent at her grand motherÂ’s country home, far away from any city distractions. Grace loves to hunt and fish, go to the river and hang out with friends and family. North Florida, not South Beach, is still where she feels more comfortable. Â“We were in Mexico for Mercedes Benz Fashion week and I was really disappointed we didnÂ’t have any extra time to go fishing,Â” Grace said. Â“I love to fish and I real ly miss it.Â” SheÂ’s back in Lake City for a few days here and there, as her schedule permits. She said this is the place where her heart is, a place where she can decompress and relax, regain her focus and remember that family is the most important thing, the thing that will be with you forever. Â“I love it here in North Florida and it is very nice to come home and get away from everything,Â” Grace said. Â“WeÂ’re close to an air port and we can fly to where we need to be, so this is still the perfect spot for me.Â” Grace Elizabeth is going places, but sheÂ’s grounded right here in Lake City and Columbia County. SheÂ’s a small-town country girl with a big dream and she is making things happen. Earning Â“The Face of GUESSÂ” honor for the next year is no small accomplishment. It surely will open doors for additional international work and will vault Grace into the modeling stratosphere. I asked Grace and her mom, Toni Cabe, how they felt about the term Â“supermodel.Â” Toni, like all parents, is proud, supportive and believes her daughter can accomplish any thing. She beams with pride at the suggestion. Grace deflects the attention with her laugh and a smile. She quickly explains to me the difference in a model and a supermodel. She wants to pursue a college degree, possibly in business. She would need to score several internation al magazine covers, become a spokeswoman in some capacity, earn multi-million-dollar contracts, become a known name. When that happens, she says, we can discuss the Â“supermodelÂ” label. She smiles and pauses Â… Â“ItÂ’s my goal to make it big.Â” Keep your eyes on this young lady. SheÂ’s a great ambassador for Lake City and Columbia County. She is headed toward the top of international modeling scenes at lightning speed. Grace Elizabeth will become a Â“supermodelÂ” if she establishes this to be her goal. I believe in her. I think back to that conversation with my friend a year ago and I com pletely agree: Â“SheÂ’s got it!Â” Message received Chronicling government waste One of the biggest obstacles J.D. Morris faces is convincing people sheÂ’s deaf. Ms. Morris didnÂ’t start losing her hearing until she was a teenager, so she speaks with perfect clarity. So much so that it takes people a minute or two to accept it when she tells them she canÂ’t hear a word theyÂ’re saying and is reading their lips. Believe it or not, some folks actual ly want to challenge her on it. But Ms. Morris is good-naturedly persistent and always manages to get her point across. So it was at City Hall last week when she wanted to check something on her utility bill but couldnÂ’t get through by phone because the customer service rep thought the operator calling on her behalf was a telemarketer. City officials, once they learned about it, got the problem straightened out quickly and even went one better. City Manager Wendell Johnson, whose own family has been touched by hearing loss, has arranged to have Ms. Morris come in and train city workers on how to communicate with the deaf and hard of hearing. Still, there are obstacles beyond City Hall. Things most of us take for granted, like ordering a burger at a fast food joint, can become an adventure all too quickly. As recounted in a story in ThursdayÂ’s paper, Ms. Morris once wrote Â“DeafÂ” at the top of her ticket to let servers know she wouldnÂ’t be able to hear when her order was up. Remarkably, after failed attempts by at least a couple of employees, a man ager stood in the dining room of an eat ery she wouldnÂ’t identify and repeatedly shouted Â“Deaf! Your order is ready.Â” Ms. Morris faces deep-rooted ignorance on the part of otherwise innocent people on a near-daily basis. ItÂ’s a problem easily solved, in theory.All weÂ’d ask is that you listen care fully when Ms. Morris, and others like her, try to communicate. If itÂ’s frustrat ing for you, think what it must be like for them. In the end, though, itÂ’s really just a matter of patience Â— and a little common sense.

Grace said finding a modeling agency to call home was a detailed process. â€œThese agencies only want to see four photos of you modeling,â€ Grace said. â€œWe got a response from several, but serious interest from two of them. NEXT was the best fit for us, so we signed with them.â€ NEXT Model Management is one of the top modeling agencies in the world and itâ€™s closest office to Lake City is in Miami Beach, where Grace spends a lot of time. Her first year of work saw her photographed in multiple locations in Miami and Miami Beach, the Florida Keys, New York City, Los Angeles and South America. Her mom, Toni Cabe, is her travel companion and her moral support. Toni travels everywhere with Grace, who turned 18 earlier this year. GUESS company offi cials noticed Grace from her portfolio and she was hired with four veteran models to work on the summer GUESS project. That shoot, the work that is displayed in the summer GUESS catalog, was photographed at Frank Sinatraâ€™s vacation home in Palm Springs, Calif. The location is available to rent for parties and special gatherings and was home to the GUESS set for several days. â€œIt was a really amazing experience,â€ Grace said, explaining how among the GUESS models, all the other men and women were veterans of several international campaigns. Since the Palm Springs shoot, she has done additional work for GUESS modeling accessories, watches and shoes, and also been photographed wearing fall fashions, but these images have not been released yet. Grace said some of the larger shoots can begin at 5 a.m. and last 12 to 15 hours. She said many hours are spent sitting and waiting while professionals prepare her hair and makeup for the proper look. â€œOnce weâ€™re ready, the shoots are pretty easy, because they are so much fun,â€ Grace said. â€œEach pose you see in the magazine lasts about 10 minutes then weâ€™re on to the next one. It takes a lot more time to change the set and the lighting than it does to pose.â€ Since the GUESS shoot wrapped, Grace has been compared to the look of a young Faye Dunaway and also supermodel Christy Turlington. Grace smiles at the comparisons, but is quick to explain she is not a supermodel yet. â€œA model can be anybody, but a supermodel is someone who is a successful business woman and a model,â€ Grace said. â€œA supermodel is a woman with an education, with a strong brain who can work in the business. Thatâ€™s my goal, but Iâ€™ve got a long way to go. â€œI think if you spend all your time thinking you will be the next big thing, then you probably wonâ€™t make it. I canâ€™t think about it. I just work.â€ Grace will return from a photo shoot in Miami during the early hours on the morning of Columbia High graduation. She will attend the practice session, then graduate that evening before heading out on another assignment after a weekend in Lake City. This past year, she has been enrolled at Columbia High and online classes through Florida Virtual School to finish her final credits. She will graduate from CHS next month. â€œWe are so proud of everything Grace has accomplished,â€ said her mother, Toni. â€œPeople donâ€™t understand the 12-15 hour work days and the dedication it takes to do what she has accomplished. It takes a lot of courage and diligence to do what she does.â€ Grace will head back to New York after graduation, then spend a month in London this summer that could lead to other client-work elsewhere in Europe. â€œIâ€™m just taking it one job at a time, enjoying it,â€ Grace said. â€œIâ€™m very thankful to God and He has blessed me. We have been safe during our travels on the roads and in the air. We know Godâ€™s hand is in this and protecting us.â€ Grace is the daughter of Toni and Arnold Cabe of Lake City and Ed Harry of Live Oak. She has a 7-yearold brother, Luke Cabe, who she says is her biggest fan. She is the granddaughter of Betty Harless of White Springs.

This is of the utmost importance because elopement incidents call for finding these persons with the utmost urgency as their safety, and indeed their lives, are exponentially in peril with every moment that passes,â€ Porter said in a prepared statement. The program, called â€œProject Leo,â€ would be implemented first in Baker, Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee counties. The billâ€™s Senate companion, SB 330, passed unanimously through three committees of reference before being stalled in Senate Appropriations by Appropriations Chair, Sen. Tom Lee, a Hillsborough County Republican. â€œI urge Sen. Lee to bring SB 330 to the senate floor for an up or down vote. This is a policy bill right now, but any, and I mean any appropriation would pale in comparison to the millions of dollars that has to be spent in search of a missing child.â€ More than $2 million reportedly was spent by local and state agencies in the search of Leo. Porter added special thanks to Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams, who came to testify before lawmakers on behalf of the bill. BILLContinued From 1A GUESSContinued From 1A

The twister passed directly over McConnell Air Force Base, but early warnings by base meteorologists were credited with preventing loss of life. Only 16 people on the base were injured. Showers will be a good bet for portions of the Northeast. A cold front trailing from a storm system will bring a risk of thunderstorms to the Southeast and Gulf Coast. Mixed showers will be possible across the Intermountain West. 93, Brownsville, TX 8, Mt.

They didnÂ’t get home until after four in the morning, which provided catcher Kamdyn Kvistad a long time to reflect on the season. Â“Just knowing that for the seniors it was their last game for their high school career and it was so late and everyone was tired and we were just ready to get back to Lake City,Â” Kvistad said. Â“There was a very sad moment on the bus ride back but we got to learn a lot about each other on the five hours there and the five hours back.Â” Columbia had to say goodbye to four seniors Thursday night, includ-ing Leslie Ann Ronsonet, Lacey King, Shania Pelham and Enigiah Manning. Ronsonet and King were both starters on a young Tigers squad that featured five sophomores and a freshman. Â“ItÂ’s extremely hard to say goodbye to seniors and our four seniors were awesome,Â” Columbia head coach Trudy Andrews said. Â“Some of those girls have played many years together so when itÂ’s time to graduate and move on to the next chapter of their lives itÂ’s hard because itÂ’s a softball family. ItÂ’s not just show up and play a sport together, you become a family.

FILEColumbia slugger Kamdyn Kvistad is seen before she tak es the plate against Atlantic Coast on February 20. Kvistad was one of five sophomores on the TigersÂ’ roster this season. The comeback kidBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comDuring ColumbiaÂ’s district championship game last week, Michael Kirkman was cheering the Tigers on from 2,000 miles away. The former CHS ace was checking Twitter through-out the game, looking for any possible update. He was stoked to read that his alma mater was crowned champ that night, especially after a rough season. While the TigersÂ’ road to redemption essentially ended last week, KirkmanÂ’s comeback was just beginning. Kirkman, 28, signed a one-year minor league deal with the Milwaukee Brewers organization last week. It was a sigh of relief for the big lefty, who had spent the previous month unemployed and unsure of his future. Kirkman currently resides in Phoenix, where the Brewers spring training facilities are located. Â“IÂ’m just here stretching out and trying to get my pitch count up so I can throw 80 pitches at least. IÂ’ve been having some good workouts,Â” Kirkman said. HeÂ’s there for at least one more week until he begins his Triple-A assign-ment in Colorado Springs, playing for the Sky Sox. However, Kirkman says his minor league visit is only temporary. Â“My plan is to get back to the big leagues,Â” Kirkman said. Â“Hopefully I can bring some consistency and hard work.Â” The Texas Rangers released Kirkman after 11 seasons last month. It was the first blow of his career, but the former fighting Tiger is ready to get back in the ring. As a Ranger he was relegated to the bullpen. Kirkman says one of the incentives for signing with Milwaukee was the oppor-tunity to start. Kirkman will be one of starting pitchers for the Sox, where heÂ’ll soon unveil his newly-polished delivery. The BrewersÂ’ higher ups will take a close look at his progression, and if theyÂ’re satisfied, Kirkman will be standing on the mound at Miller Park sooner than later. Just like his old team did this year, Kirkman will try to prove all his doubters wrong. HeÂ’s not done yet.

Walker joins shooting guard Michael Frazier II in leaving school early for the draft. The 6-foot-10 Walker averaged 4.7 points and 3.5 rebounds as a sopho-more this season, prov-ing to be one of the biggest disappointments in DonovanÂ’s 19 years at Florida. A McDonaldÂ’s All-America in high school, Walker came to Gainesville with loads of hype. He fell way short of expectations, playing in 49 games and start-ing six in two years.

Â— Weather disrupted NASCARÂ’s top series for a second consecutive week when Saturday nightÂ’s Sprint Cup Series race was postponed because of persistent rain at Richmond International Raceway. NASCAR rescheduled the event for Sunday at 1 p.m. ItÂ’s the first time this season the series has been unable to race because of rain, but completing last SundayÂ’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway was a challenge. Rain caused nearly a 90-minute delay Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway, and the race was stopped for a four-hour rain delay not long after it finally began. In all, the Bristol event took nearly nine hours to complete from start to fin-ish. Joey Logano will start from the pole when the Richmond race begins. Denny Hamlin, who grew up 20 minutes from the speedway in Chesterfield, will start second in his attempt to complete a nearly perfect weekend. Hamlin won the pole for Friday nightÂ’s Xfinity Series race and then led all but two laps in winning the race. The victory, the 100th in the Xfinity Series for manufacturer Toyota, came as Hamlin returned to competition after get-ting out of his car at Bristol with neck spasms. He said the spasms began around Lap 12, and after receiving treatment dur-ing the long rain delay, the decision was made for him not to resume the race. Joe Gibbs Racing development driver Erik Jones replaced Hamlin in the car. Following Friday nightÂ’s victory, Hamlin said he made the right call not to race anymore at Bristol and look ahead to the Richmond races. Â“We knew we had a big week ahead of us com-ing up here at Richmond and I needed to be 100 percent for that,Â” Hamlin said. Â“I think we made the right decision and obvi-ously itÂ’s all paying off so far. All the cars IÂ’ve driven here so far this weekend at Richmond in both the Cup and Xfinity Series has been very, very strong.Â”After Friday qualifying-At Richmond International Raceway-Richmond, Va.-Lap length: .75 miles(Car number in parenthe-ses)1.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2015 3B of the ones that are leaving and going onto the next chapter but yet youÂ’re sad that they are going on.Â” King, who was bitten on the arm by a dog last weekend, couldnÂ’t even play in her final game for Columbia and her absence was evident, according to Kvistad. Â“It hurt us hitting and defensively, we kind of had to move some people around in the lineup and in the field,Â” Kvistad said. Â“We definitely missed her bat [Thursday] night in that leadoff position.Â” Regardless of who was in the lineup, ColumbiaÂ’s biggest downfall this sea-son was sustaining momen-tum as the Tigers only strung together two win-ning streaks during their whole campaign. Things looked good early on as the Tigers began the season 4-0 but they could only put together one more winning streak the rest of the year, which was made up of just back-to-back victories over Oakleaf and Middleburg in mid-March. Otherwise, Columbia seemed addicted to alter-nating wins with losses. From February 13 until March 12, the Tigers fol-lowed every loss with a victory only to fall short on the scoreboard the very next time out. Some might credit that to six underclassmen but Kvistad wasnÂ’t about to use that as an excuse. Â“All of us have been playing ball since we were little with T-ball and rec ball, we grew up around the game,Â” Kvistad said. Â“I feel like key mistakes throughout the season, like if we had gotten a base hit here in this inning or caught a ball in this inning, itÂ’s just lit-tle things throughout the season. I wouldnÂ’t use our youth as an excuse but it will help us in the long run for people to get experi-ence playing on varsity and I feel like weÂ’ll be more mature.Â” The skies look bluer next season for Columbia as the team returns seven of its nine starters, including Kvistad, shortstop Tatum Morgan, first baseman Lexus Eaker, infielder S.K. Lewis, and pitchers Ivorie Maltby and Alaina Perry. Hogan, Hayes Fulford and Jazman Myers also return. All started in various games throughout the season. Needless to say, thereÂ’s much to like heading into next season for the Tigers. Â“Overall our season wasnÂ’t bad, we had a couple of losses here and there but for as a young as a team as were are and with new coaches and a just a very new team per se, I think we did really good compared to what most people thought we were going to do,Â” Kvistad said. Â“We did get something good out of the season, we learned from it and we just have to move on and do better next year.Â” Andrews is looking forward to next year and thought her players did extremely well this sea-son against adversity that seemed to strike her young team throughout their campaign. Â“I think we had four or five returners from varsity and the rest of the girls had moved up from JV or had a couple innings of play last year and came into varsity plus you come in with a new coaching staff and us learning them and them learning us,Â” Andrews said. Â“I think they stepped up and did very well as far as all thatÂ’s concerned. We had a young team and all the changes we had to make throughout the sea-son with IvorieÂ’s [toe] sur-gery and different things such as people getting sick or injured that we had to battle against I think they stepped up and did extremely well.Â” REFLECT Continued From Page 1B COURTESYThe Columbia Boys Basketball program held its annual awards banquet on Thursday, April 9.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2015 F ollowing the tourna ment heartbreaker of two weeks earlier, whatâ€™s the best way to forget about such a tough loss? Fish another tour nament. Right? At least, thatâ€™s what I always heard in my playing career. You hear it all the time in sports baseball, basket ball, football, gymnastics, cricket, water polo, etc. Get back out there, do what you practice (or love to do in this case), and put the last results way back in your mind. With this thought process, Jonathan Allen joined Steve Osborne on his Alumacraft, and Team Outdoors360 set our alarms for roughly 4 a.m. to fish the Gregory Bishop Memorial Tournament out of Steinhatchee, Florida. The Greg Bishop Tournament has a unique format with primary tar gets of redfish, trout, and mackerel. There were prizes for the biggest fish in each category and one slam prize. I love fishing with Steve because he and I share the same mindset. We love to explore, take chances, pre pare thoroughly, fish very shallow (and his boat is perfect for this), and work very hard while fishing. We never stop casting and cover water non-stop. At some point, weâ€™ll probably both need shoulder sur gery. Lastly weâ€™re both very laid back. We recent ly had a loudmouthed angler motor up to us on our previous trip running his mouth, and Steve sim ply said â€œIâ€™m sorryâ€, and this jackwagon wouldnâ€™t stop. Steveâ€™s next reply was, â€œListen, I already apologized. Iâ€™m sorryâ€. I can promise you with some of the other hotheaded guys Iâ€™ve fished with, this would have turned into a WWE match on the Gulf of Mexico very quickly. It happens all of the time as common cour tesy seems to have gone the way of the VCR. You thought it was impatient drivers or rude shop pers at Publix? Well, you havenâ€™t seen anything until you carefully approach a fishing shoreline for 20 minutes as quietly as pos sible, and then an airboat shoots the 50-yard gap like theyâ€™re in the Daytona 500. Back to tournament day, we hit the water with a sim ple game plan just keep doing what weâ€™ve been doing the last few months. Although we werenâ€™t able to pre-fish like I would typi cally prepare, we werenâ€™t overly concerned. Our pat tern of drifting super skin ny water, working a series of spots and shorelines, and using the power-pole shallow water anchor often had produced an incred ible winter and spring of Osborne/Chapman trips. Our last trip just a month earlier had produced 20plus trout in the 24-inch plus range with Ralph Rowand and 20 redfish to 29 inches. The previous trip to that I had personally caught 16 trout between 24 and 29 inches, and the boat total was near 30. Those num bers almost never happen anywhere. Guess what all of that means on tourna ment day? Nothing! We hit the channel at about 6:30 and headed out into a sloppy chop in route for an area near the Pepperfish Keys. Within five minutes of our first drift, I caught a solid 18inch trout on a topwater Super Spook. We couldnâ€™t have asked for a better start as the fishing reports had been awful for weeks. And when I say awful, I mean complete skunks for very good fishermen for a solid month. I was hopeful this early solid trout meant we could somehow avoid the trout drought. I was wrong. This trout was the only trout we caught the whole day. Seriously. But, donâ€™t worry, as this was a trout and red fish and mackerel tourna ment. We bolted to some deeper water as this skinny water flat was losing water faster than Niagra Falls. It would soon be as dry as the Mojave Desert. I lucked into a mackerel in twofeet of water, and it ended up being a top three fish purely by accident. The odds of catching a mackerel in super skinny water, with no leader (they have razor sharp teeth), are very slim. Now our focus was Mr. Redfish. The day dragged on, and we never picked up a hot bite. Steve caught a lower slot redfish (20inches) that qualified for the cooler, and we picked up a few more short red fish. Fast forward to 3:15 and we had about 15 min utes left before we had to head to the weigh-in. If you remember our last tournament misadventure we ended up catching what was â€“ almost our winning fish at the last spot, as time was running out. So, I gave the team my best â€œWin one for the Gipperâ€ speech!â€ The redfish heard me as all of a sudden my lure was getting bombarded by big redfish that had ignored us all day. In those last 15 minutes, I had five big redfish attack my lure with nine hooks on it. I emphasize the nine hooks because not one redfish bit a single hook. If just one of those 45 possible hook sets had happened, we would have won the $1,250 first prize for biggest red fish just one! So, to recap in two weeks I had been involved in two tourna ments where we missed winning by just one mil limeter and just one hook. Thatâ€™s tournament fishing, or at least thatâ€™s what I keep telling myself...what you canâ€™t see is that Iâ€™m violently shaking my head as I write this! I think itâ€™s time for the good luck beard to make a come back. The good news is all three of my girls were able to attend their first weighin, and all of us returned happy and healthy.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comConstruction crews are in the midst of a $7.1 million construction project at the Lake City Gateway Airport making drainage, taxiway and runway improvements. Construction crews are currently working on the eastern portion of the airportâ€™s property. Nick Harwell, Lake City Gateway Airport General Manager, said the construction started a little more than a month ago and noted the construction project is for 420 days with a tentative December completion date. He said final punch list items may carry the work over through April 2016. â€œTheyâ€™re current ly installing double row, 54-inch, round, corrugated pipe,â€ Harwell said. â€œWeâ€™re on the new construction phase of the project.â€ The taxiway project consists of an extension of 2,600 linear feet, which will give the airport a full parallel length taxiway. A taxiway provides access for aircraft from an active runway to the terminal area or from the terminal area to the runway for departure or arrival. Itâ€™s a means of transitioning from the active runway for arrival or departure. â€œWe started on the new construction first,â€ Harwell said. â€œEventually, weâ€™ll double back and create some temporary taxi lanes off of Taxiway Alfa to get to the airport terminal and once thatâ€™s complete, weâ€™ll come back through and get ready to do the resurfacing project.â€ The project will also include the addition of LED lighting along the runway. Bert Stephens is project superintendent for the pipework and Rodney Chancey is project supervisor over the sub-grade work on the project. Stephens said construction crews have already completed a 575-foot portion of the project and the crews will be adding additional piping. He said approximately 6,000 feet of pipe will be added to improve the airportâ€™s drainage. In addition to increasing the length of the taxiway, project work also encompasses widening the taxiway to a width of 50-feet. The taxiway is currently 35 feet in width. Harwell said the improvements at the airport will have a broad impact on the areaâ€™s economic outlook. â€œWeâ€™re trying to get ahead of the growth that we anticipate happening at Plum Creek (the North Florida Intermodal Park), so that Lake City Gateway Airport is not in play when it comes to any disruption of economic growth in the communi ty,â€ he said. â€œPilots will be able to feel confident flying in as well as departing from Lake City Gateway Airport.â€ The total cost of the project has been estimated at $7.1 million.

Sorry, we canÂ’t provide individual financial advice. The Best Time to StartQWhenÂ’s the best time for a beginning investor like me to buy my first shares of stocks? Â— L.M., Nine Mile Falls, WashingtonAAnytime Â— as long as you expect to remain invested for at least five or so years. If you wait on the sidelines, the market may keep rising, as it does in most years. If you wait for a pullback, the pullback may not be enough to have made it worth the wait. ThereÂ’s one especially promising entry time, though: after the stock market has dropped sharply, leav-ing many stocks at bargain prices. DonÂ’t invest any money until youÂ’re comfortable with what youÂ’re doing. And if youÂ’re still nervous about jumping in (perhaps because the market has risen a lot recently), consider easing in by buying shares over time. If youÂ’re a patient, long-term investor focusing on strong, grow-ing companies that have sustainable competitive advantages and are trad-ing at attractive prices, you should do well. Better still, start with a simple broad-market index fund while you learn more. For additional guidance, visit fool.com/how-to-invest . ***QWhatÂ’s negative amortization? Â— T.R., Dunlap, IndianaAAmortization happens when you lower a loan balance (such as that of a mortgage) over time by making payments toward it that cover interest charges and part of the princi-pal. In unfortunate situations, though, your mortgage pay-ment may not cover the interest due. When that happens, presto Â— you have negative amortization, featuring a growing, not shrinking, loan balance because the unpaid interest is added to your principal. Then you end up paying interest on interest! Many foreclosures have been tied to adjustable-rate mortgages that featured minimum payment options. These permitted bor-rowers to end up with negative amortization.Got a question for the Fool?

Many others, though, including many such CEOs, will explain that theyÂ’re worth it, as they steer their companies to higher profits. A bunch of studies disagree. For example, the folks at Equilar recently ranked the salaries of the 200 highest-paid CEOs and then compared them to those companiesÂ’ stock market returns, finding little correlation. In another study, finance professor Raghavendra Rau and two co-researchers examined about 1,500 businesses per year between 1994 and 2006. They found that the companies whose CEOs were in the highest 10 percent of pay sported stock returns about 12 percentage points lower than others in their industry and generated abnormal returns of minus-8 percent over the next three years. Professor Rau also found that the highest-paid CEOs leave their shareholders poorer, Â© 2015 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST. BY UNIVERSAL UCLICK 4/23Comcast abandons Time Warner Cable bid By TALI ARBEL andMICHELLE CHAPMANAP Business WritersNEW YORK Â— What killed ComcastÂ’s $45 billion bid for Time Warner Cable? RegulatorsÂ’ desire to protect the Internet video industry that is reshaping TV. A combination of the No. 1 and No. 2 U.S. cable companies would have put nearly 30 percent of TV and about 55 per cent of broadband subscribers under one roof, along with NBCUniversal, giving the resulting behemoth unprecedented power over what Americans watch and download. Competitors, consumer groups, and pol iticians have criticized the deal, saying it would lead to higher prices and less choice. Â“The proposed merger would have posed an unacceptable risk to competition and innovation, including to the ability of online video providers to reach and serve consumers,Â” Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said in a written statement. The Justice Department said that Comcast dropped its bid because of reg ulatorsÂ’ concerns that the Philadelphia-based cable giant would become an Â“unavoidable gatekeeperÂ” for Internet services. One of the concerns consumer advo cates and competitors had with the Comcast deal was that it could under mine the streaming video industry that is reshaping TV. Comcast could, for exam ple, require onerous payments from new online-only video providers for connect ing to its network. Dish, the satellite TV company behind the new Web video service Sling TV, and Netflix opposed the deal. Â“It goes to show you how important broadband is,Â” said Amy Yong, a Macquarie analyst. Regulators have taken other steps that signal how important they consider Internet access. The Federal Communications Commission in February released new Â“Net NeutralityÂ” rules meant to keep broad band providers from charging Internet companies for Â“fast laneÂ” access or favoring some content. The broadband industry has sued to stop the rules. Â“We have to live with it, and respect that, and move on,Â” Comcast chairman and CEO Brian Roberts said in an interview on CNBC, referring to the governmentÂ’s opposition to the deal. Â“We always struc tured this deal in a way that would enable us to walk away.Â” Comcast doesnÂ’t owe Time Warner Cable a breakup fee because the deal didnÂ’t work out. With the deal between Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc. called off, a transaction with Charter Communications Inc. aimed at smoothing the way for regu latory approval also falls apart. Even with the Comcast and Time Warner Cable deal being nixed, cable companies are likely to keep combining as costs rise for the shows, sports and movies they pipe to subscribers and video custom ers decrease. Many analysts expect that Charter Communications could resurrect its own effort to acquire Time Warner Cable. A combined Charter and Time Warner Cable would have 15 million video cus tomers and 16.5 million Internet custom ers. ThatÂ’s still smaller than Comcast alone, which has 22.4 million video sub scribers and 22 million Internet custom ers.And the $48.5 billion combination of DirecTV and AT&T is still expected to go through. Shares of Time Warner Cable Inc. rose $2.74 to $151.50 in morning trading while Comcast shares slipped 8 cents to $59.18. AmazonÂ’s Web Services boosts 1Q revenueBy MAE ANDERSONAP Technology WriterNEW YORK Â— AmazonÂ’s profitable cloud-computing services business is growing by leaps and bounds. That growth helped the e-commerce com pany Thursday post a 15 percent first-quar ter revenue jump and a smaller-than-ex pected loss. The results sent AmazonÂ’s shares up 6 percent in aftermarket trading. Investors have been growing restless with AmazonÂ’s long-term strategy of plow ing most of the money it makes into new areas like cloud computing, streaming video and hardware Â— leading to razor-thin profits or, in this quarterÂ’s case, a loss. Because Amazon had never broken out details on Amazon Web Services before, it wasnÂ’t clear if it was operating at a profit or loss. But details released on Thursday show that surging revenue isnÂ’t coming at expense of a profit in that business, reas suring investors. Meanwhile, Amazon shows no sign of slowing down new offerings. In recent months, Amazon introduced Amazon Echo, a Bluetooth speaker that responds to voice commands and Amazon Dash, stand-alone buttons that can be pressed to reorder com mon household goods like Tide detergent. It has also rolled out ser vices that help users book travel and hire people to complete household proj ects. And itÂ’s expanding its Amazon Prime Instant Video service for members of its $99 annual Prime loy alty program, including a TV series with Woody Allen. Amazon Web Services is a suite of products and ser vices offered to business es by way of the Â“cloud,Â” remote servers that enable users to access applications on any machine with an Internet connection Revenue in that business rose 49 per cent to $1.57 billion. Meanwhile, total rev enue rose to $22.72 billion, above analyst expectations of $22.37 billion. Â“Amazon Web Services is a $5 billion business and still growing fast Â— in fact itÂ’s accelerating,Â” said CEO Jeff Bezos. Amazon Web Services is the biggest player in the public cloud-computing space, 5 or 6 times big ger than its closest com petitor, MicrosoftÂ’s Azure, and Google a distant third, according to analysts. Gartner estimates that the total public cloud services market totaled $152.45 billion in 2014 and it expected to grow 16 per cent to $176.38 billion in 2015. Â“WhatÂ’s kept Amazon on top is theyÂ’ve had a relent less approach to innova tion, adding 40 to 50 new services a year while still dropping prices constantly,Â” said Forrester analyst David Bartoletti. The company has dropped prices 48 times in the nine years it has been around. One of its most recent offerings announced in January is WorkMail, which helps run companies email and calendar services. Amazon also makes the different components of Amazon Web Services easy to try for free. Â“If they donÂ’t work, they can turn them off,Â” he said. Â“ThatÂ’s the beauty of the cloud.Â” In the first quarter Amazon report ed a loss of $57 million, or 12 cents per share. The average estimate of 17 analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for a loss of 13 cents per share. The online retailer posted revenue of $22.72 billion in the period, also beating Street forecasts. Seventeen analysts sur veyed by Zacks expected $22.42 billion. For the current quarter ending in June, Amazon said it expects revenue in the range of $20.6 billion to $22.8 billion. Analysts surveyed by Zacks had expected revenue of $22.24 billion. AmazonÂ’s shares rose $24.01 to $414 in aftermarket trading following the earnings report.

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, APRIL 26 SATURDAY, MAY 2, 2015 work done by the Council of Presidents of Floridaâ€™s 28 community colleges. This work is vital, as they give employees a voice to the Legislature. This is particularly important during Session, when there are so many topics that affect the Florida College System. AFC offers recognition and awards to outstanding employees of the Florida College System. Our President, Dr. Charles Hall is retiring soon, and he was recently awarded an AFC Honorary Life Award at the AFC Annual Convention in Destin, one of only a few given every year. Dr. Hall has been a great supporter of AFC, and will be missed. Our local chapter is providing Lunch & Learns to showcase experts in our college, community, and even other colleges. We recently hosted Dr. Stefani Nugroho, a Fulbright Scholar from Indonesia, and FGCâ€™s own Dr. Sean McMahon on the Hurricane of 1896 that devastated Lake City. Liz Horne, our Supervisor of Elections, came to educate us on voting rules and the powerful tools available to voters on the website. Through this venue, we encourage more community members to participate and bring their knowledge and expertise to Florida Gateway College. Education is always the goal of Florida Gateway College. In addition to our professional development, we often host socials on campus for our faculty and staff. These are great networking tools, and also a nice way to take a small break from our day-to-day toils. We provide breakfast at Convocation every fall, sponsor the Holiday Reception in December, and provide food whenever it is asked of us. If you feed them, they will come. Perhaps most importantly to the community, we aim to support our friends, neighbors and future students through charitable efforts. FGC AFC has held fundraisers to support Guardian ad Litem, Cystic Fibrosis, Another Way, Relay for Life, March of Dimes, and the FGC Student Food Pantry in the past year alone. These are causes that impact our community and the FGC family directly. Furthermore, we participate in statewide Service Projects that take place at our statewide meetings. FGC AFC also recently endowed a scholarship, after more than 20 years of effort. This scholarship will help offset the expenses of education at Florida Gateway College, particularly for our members who are trying to advance themselves in our community. We at Florida Gateway College take pride in the work of the Association of Florida Colleges. It often means quite a bit of devotion for those who take on the many roles we play at the college and state, but we feel it is well worth the effort and time. COLLEGEContinued From 1C From staff reportsGAINESVILLE â€” City of Starke Mayor Carolyn Spooner, Chair of the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council welcomed guest speaker Jim Wood, State Transportation Planning Administrator of the Florida Department of Transportation, to the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council meeting held last month in Lake City. Also in attendance was Columbia County Gubernatorial Appointee James Montgomery. Wood made a presentation to the council concerning the update of long-range transportation plan for Florida, as well as the Strategic Intermodal System Policy Plan, and the Future Corridors Initiative. The council, in partnership with economic development organizations and local governments, promotes regional strategies, partnerships and solutions to strengthen the economic competitiveness and quality of life of the 11 counties and 33 incorporated municipalities in the north central portion of Florida. The Council, whose members are local elected officials and gubernatorial appointees, administers a variety of state and federal programs for North Central Florida. Programs include development of the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy, the Strategic Regional Policy Plan, technical assistance to local governments in development of comprehensive plans, land development regulations and grant management, and administration of developments of regional impact, local mitigation strategies, hazardous materials, homeland security and economic development programs. In addition, the council staffs the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization for the Gainesville Urbanized Area, the North Central Florida Local Emergency Planning Committee, the North Central Florida Regional Hazardous Materials Response Team and The Original Florida Tourism Task Force.Jim Wood guest speaker at Regional Planning Council TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterRunway work continuesA major project to improve the runway at Florida Gateway Airport is well underway.

The leverage comes from a little-known federal fund that helps states and hospitals recoup some of the cost of caring for uninsured patients. The administration says states can just expand Medicaid, as the health care law provides, and then they wouldnâ€™t need as much extra help with costs for the uninsured. Two top targets so far are Florida and Texas, with large numbers of uninsured residents. Both have received several billion dollars in recent years from Washington under the so-called low income pool, also known as LIP. Floridaâ€™s hospital funding is the first of the nine states â€” which include Tennessee, California, Massachusetts, Arizona, Hawaii, Kansas and New Mexico â€” to expire on June 30. But the hospital funds are an optional program, not entitlement programs like Medicaid, meaning the federal government has broad discretion whether to grant them, experts say. â€œThereâ€™s no doubt that other states that havenâ€™t expanded Medicaid are watching this,â€ said Joan Alker, Alker, executive director of the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families. Hospitals say even with the low-income pool funds, it still doesnâ€™t cover their costs for caring for uninsured and Medicaid patients. Several hospitals have said they would be forced to cut services or shut down without the funding.

What are you going to do? There are many pest management practices that you can use instead of reaching for synthetic pesticides. Think about incorporat ing some new practices, including the use of Â‘natu ralÂ’ pesticide products. Many of the insects in the garden are beneficial insects and they feed on the Â‘badÂ’ insects. We donÂ’t want to harm them because they destroy the Â‘badÂ’ guys. How do you know if an insect is a good one? Learn to identify them and regular-ly scout for them as well as the pests. If they are both present, leave them alone and let nature manage the insect populations for you. YouÂ’ll notice that some plants are bothered more by pests than other plants, so check your problem plants often. In general, there are two main types of insect damage you will be observing. One is missing pieces of plant tissue because the insect chews and eats it, leaving holes in leaves, in flower petals, in the fruit. The other is discoloration or distortion of plant parts because the insect extracts the liquids right out of the tissues, just like sucking it out with a straw. Sap-sucking insects will usual ly be found on the under side of leaves. To help locate small insects such as thrips or mites, shake the leaves while holding a sheet of white paper beneath the branch. The insects or mites will fall onto the white paper and can be seen more easily. Watch for black sooty mold on leaves. This fun gus grows on the sticky "honeydew" excreted by sap-sucking insects such as whiteflies, aphids and soft scales. Because ants also feed on this honeydew excrement, their presence on plants often indicates an insect infestation. An insect resting on a leaf is not an indication of plant damage: less than one percent of all insects cause plant dam age. If you must treat a Natural ways to control garden pests WIKIMEDIA COMMONSMost people think ladybug larva are something to get rid of, especially if they see very many. Just the opposite is true. The older juve niles can devour more aphids than the adult ladybug can eat. PESTS continued on 4D

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2015 3D DEAR ABBY: I have noticed that some people in my age group (60s) are becoming compulsive talkers. These people donÂ’t ask questions of those around them. When someone begins to speak, the compulsive talker interrupts, usually in a louder voice and returns to dominating the conver sation. Some of them con tinue to ramble on even when no one is listening anymore. I tire quickly when IÂ’m around these marathon talkers, but IÂ’m too polite to interrupt them. It wouldnÂ’t do any good any way, because they seem unable to stop. When someone tells them they talk too much, they get offended, but the behav ior doesnÂ’t change. Do you have sugges tions for how to handle compulsive talkers so I wonÂ’t have to listen to the person go on and on? It makes me feel fatigued, irritable and trapped. Â— OVERLOADED IN WASHINGTON DEAR OVERLOADED: I do have a suggestion. Avoid people like this. If you canÂ’t avoid them, politely excuse yourself as quick ly as possible. These people are Â“sappers,Â” and it is not unusual for them to drain others of energy, leaving them feeling tired, overloaded and trapped as you have described. Within a few minutes of getting away you will start feeling better. Try it and youÂ’ll see. DEAR ABBY: IÂ’m 25 years old, have my bach elorÂ’s degree, bought a house and work a great full-time job. I think itÂ’s safe to say that I have established myself as an adult. However, an older co-worker seems to asso ciate me with his grand children because of my youthful appearance. He calls me Â“kiddoÂ” and Â“buddy.Â” Instead of greeting me the way he does everyone else, he says, Â“Boo!Â” I usually smile and nod in response because IÂ’m not sure what response he expects. Recently he said, Â“YouÂ’re supposed to say, Â‘Eek!Â’Â” I understand heÂ’s being friendly, but it makes me uncomfortable. I find it childish and not respect ful. Should I continue to ignore it, or is there a polite way to ask him to stop? Â— BIG GIRL NOW DEAR BIG GIRL: DonÂ’t ignore it. When it happens again, take him aside and tell him pri vately that being treated differently from the other employees makes you uncomfortable. Explain that itÂ’s disrespectful and you want it stopped. If he doesnÂ’t comply, tell your supervisor or boss that you have spoken to him about this and it persists. DEAR ABBY: My best friend and I both had boy friends around the same time. I broke up with mine three months before she did. Now my ex likes her, and her ex likes me. I told her I didnÂ’t care if she went out with my ex because we live in a small town. They started dat ing, and I started talking to her ex. She got pretty mad at first, and then said if I like him I should date him. The thing is, I have liked him for a long time and they have been broken up for three months now. Everybody says I should date him. I donÂ’t know what to do. Â— CONFUSED BEST FRIEND DEAR CONFUSED: Because your friend now says itÂ’s all right if you date her ex-boyfriend, what you should do is let him know youÂ’re inter ested. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Engage in activities that offer adventure. Challenge yourself to do better. DonÂ’t let critical individuals bring you down or hold you back. Believe in your abilities, nego tiate on your own behalf and make your dreams come true. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Problems at home will escalate if someone has spent too much money or behaved selfishly. Try not to let your emotions take over. Staying calm and looking for workable solutions will bring the best results. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Love is on the rise, and romance will help your per sonal life flourish. Socializing and sharing your ideas will lead to a positive lifestyle change. DonÂ’t pass up an opportunity someone offers. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Living in the past will not propel you forward. Reminiscing may take your mind off something you are avoiding, but eventually you will have to deal with the changes you are facing. Put problems behind you. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will face temptation. ItÂ’s good to take action, but donÂ’t overdo it, or youÂ’ll face criti cism and setbacks. Focus on what you do best, and you will secure your position instead of jeopardizing your chances to get ahead. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Find out all you can about the people who can influence your life, position or future. A problem with some one close to you will limit your ability to do what you like. Preparation and organization will be required to avoid dis appointment. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Step things up a notch. ItÂ’s up to you to exhibit your beliefs, ideas and plans to bring about change. Your dedication, loyalty and intelli gence will help you overcome any negativity or opposition you face. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emotional situations will escalate rapidly, leaving you in a precarious position. DonÂ’t try to cover up for a mistake someone else has made. Stick to the truth and offer sugges tions that are clear-cut and doable. Stay calm -anger will get you nowhere. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel, learn ing and engaging in interest ing pastimes will lead to posi tive lifestyle changes. DonÂ’t be fooled by a slick sales pitch. Do your research, and you will get the most for the least. Love is on the rise. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Share your ideas with those who will be affected by your plans. A change will frighten some one who is comfortable with things the way they are. Use all the information you have gathered, and you will get your way. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A situation between yourself and a friend, relative or lover will spin out of control. DonÂ’t get angry or overreact. Give yourself some time to rethink your strategy. Focus on personal pampering, not criticizing or trying to change others. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Pick up the knowledge, experience and skills required to get ahead. Embellishing what you have to offer will lead to disappointment. Be honest about your capabilities and your willingness to learn, and you will be given greater consideration. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Compulsive talkers taking a toll on friends, family stuck listening Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Adam is coming Â“homeÂ” to the Suwannee River Jam held at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park April 29 Â– May 2. And, in honor of his success in Nashville where he is an accomplished singer/songwriter/performer with many new hits, the folks at the SRJ want to honor Adam right here in North Florida with a Welcome Home Adam Sanders Party, and you are invited. The party gets underway at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Music Hall where Adam will hold a meet and greet, perform an acoustic set and hold a question and answer ses sion with fans. Aadmission to his special event is free with the pur chase of an SRJ ticket. Â“IÂ’m excited to be coming home to the Suwannee River Jam,Â” Sanders said during a recent phone interview. Â“I havenÂ’t seen a lot of people I grew up with and it will be good to make it back home. I played the SRJ two years ago but nothing in North Florida since then.Â” Sanders is a Lake City native where he attended school, played fairs, festivals, entered contests everywhere including the SOSMP and performed dozens of times each year before graduating from Columbia High School in 2007. Sanders said heÂ’s been in Nashville six years and that is con sidered a short time compared to other artists who struggled for 10 or more years to get their careers on track before they hit it big. Adam said when he graduated from high school, he took half a semester of college before making the decision to head to Nashville where he knew he was meant to be. Adam virtually grew up on Music Row in Nashville when he visited his father, Billy Sanders, each summer in Nashville. AdamÂ’s grandfather, Billy Earl Sanders, moved from North Florida to Nashville to play music. AdamÂ’s uncle, Scott (Scotty) Sanders for merly of Jasper and Lake City. but now Nashville, may be the best steel guitar player in Nashville. Having played on dozens of stag es at the invitation of Lake CityÂ’s Steve Briscoe, owner of 1st Street Music, Adam said he has to give credit where credit is due where his career is concerned. Â“Steve has been a big help to me over the years, and IÂ’ve had lots of support ers,Â” Adam said. With friends and collabo rators Cole Swindell, Dierks Bentley, Dustin Lynch and Scotty McCreery, AdamÂ’s had hits such as Â“AinÂ’t Worth The Whiskey,Â” Â“Dozen Roses and A Six Pack,Â” Â“Hell of a NightÂ” and Â“Sounds of Summer.Â” AdamÂ’s own recent debut single release, Â“NothinÂ’ To Do But Drink,Â” is currently heard on SiriusXM and available on Spotify and iTunes. In the fall of 2013, Adam signed with world-wide talent agency William Morris Endeavor and has been burning up the road since that time and sharing stages with the likes of Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Cole Swindell, Thomas Rhett, Randy Houser, Dustin Lynch, Josh Thompson, Easton Corbin, The Cadillac Three and more! What a resume for a North Florida boy now building his own legend in Nashville and across the nation! Adam hints there could be some big news coming as he is releasing his newest single April 21, just days before his concert at the SRJ. HeÂ’s touring with Cole Swindell and others now and says heÂ’s probably close to a record deal! It seems fitting for this young singer/songwriter to reach the top of that success ladder at long last. Meanwhile, heÂ’s traveled all over the US and even played a gig at Cancun! Now, heÂ’ll be back Â“homeÂ” at the SRJ for 2015! Welcome home Adam!

We have many Â‘naturalÂ’ pes ticides which are usually less toxic to non-target organisms and to the envi ronment. Many were used before the popularity of synthetic pesticides began in the 1950Â’s and are gain ing popularity again. Petroleum and plant derived oil products and insecticidal soaps are most effective against small, soft-bodies insects such as aphids, scales, leafhopper nymphs, and whiteflies. The pest should be well coated by the spray. There is no residual activity, so incoming insects are not affected. Reapplication is usually needed for control. Pyrethrins are highly concentrated compounds extracted from a daisy-like flower grown in India. The toxins are fast acting but break down quickly and have low mammalian toxicity. Therefore, they are one of the safest insec ticides in use. Some of the pests that are on the label include ants, aphids, roaches, fleas, flies and ticks. A couple other natural products worth mention ing are diatomaceous earth and Bt bacterium spray. Diatomaceous earth is made from fossil ized silica shell remains of diatoms. The sharp edges cut the outer layer of slugs, snails, millipedes and sowbugs, causing them to dry out. When caterpillars eat leaves sprayed with Bt bacterium, they stop feeding and die within a few days. Other organisms are not affect ed. As with all pesticides, follow the directions on the label. The label will have necessary informa tion for product effec tiveness, environmental precautions, mixing and application methods. If you have questions, check with the Florida Master Gardeners on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 386 752-5384. PESTSContinued From 1DQ D.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2015 5D A s I checked out of GainesvilleÂ’s Trader JoeÂ’s I asked the cashier what restaurant she would recommend nearby for lunch. She suggested 4 Rivers Smokehouse. I had noticed it before but had never tried it. I liked the name, 4 Rivers. I thought it must be for our rivers, the Suwannee, Santa Fe, Ichetucknee but then couldnÂ’t come up with the fourth one. I later learned that the ownerÂ’s name is John Rivers and his wife and two children comprise the 4 Rivers. When I entered the door I loved the whiff of bar beque. ThereÂ’s a service line that you go through and make your selections. Selecting became very hard as there were a lot of choices. Fortunately, the staff was very helpful and the people behind me were very patient. I decid ed to try the Smokehouse Sliders ($8.49) since you got three and you could pick from the Angus bris ket, pulled pork, burnt-ends or pulled chicken. DidnÂ’t realize how much food that would be and that one would have been enough but I needed to test it out for my readers. Right? For $2.50 more you can have two sides. There are 16 sides to choose from including old favorites like mac & cheese, sweet potato casserole, collards, fried okra, baked cheese grits, barbecue beans just to name a few. I decided to try the baked beans and cornbread salad. The baked beans were absolutely delicious and a favorite right away. The cornbread salad was also a favorite. I hadnÂ’t had this one before and was glad I choose it. ItÂ’s a regular green romaine salad with tomatoes, cukes, etc. but it has their cornbread crum bled on top with their own dressing. The dressing was sort of like a Catalina but not as tangy. It was a may onnaise base, pink, with seasonings and bread and butter pickle juice. DonÂ’t write this one off. Ask them for a sample if you are cautious about the pickle juice. You can also just trust me and go for it. By now you surely know that IÂ’m not going to steer you wrong. The sliders were very generous portions. The pulled pork was juicy, ten der and very tasty. The Burnt Ends were almost like ground pork and I would have enjoyed it more if it had been either sliced or chunky cause I like the crispy, burnt edges. To me, the star of my three was the brisket. I had watched them slice it when they served me and I have to admit, it just melted in my mouth. It is 5 Stars for the 4 Rivers on this one. My favorite ever brisket was at the County Line in Austin, Texas. This was right there with that one. Apparently Mr. Rivers learned about brisket in Texas, too. YouÂ’ll find brisket in other barbecue restaurants in our area but itÂ’s different. No more rattling on from me, just go try it, please. The food is served on a tray that has brown paper lining it and the food is placed directly on the paper rather than a plate or basket. I liked that and just squeezed my barbe cue sauce right on the tray. Mr. Rivers says that it took him 18 years to master the art of briskets and now it is yours to savor. The dÃ©cor is very Texas with a big steer head mounted over the drink machines and a wooden barrel made into a sink to wash your hands after the ribs. Long tables that can seat at least 16 are down the middle which are per fect for office or college groups. At the far end of the restaurant was a big surprise. There is a complete bake shop with cakes, cookies, bars and cupcakes staring at you throughout your meal. More about that later. After my meal I spoke with the general manager, Mike Yamauchi. He was just a delight to talk with. He has come up through the ranks after getting his degree at the University of Central Florida. He filled me in on the RiversÂ’ story. You could just tell that he loved his job and he was eager to talk to me about it. John Rivers was in the healthcare industry for 20 years. Says he found the two loves of his life in Texas: his wife and the delicate art of brisket. He started his barbecuing as a fundraiser to support a local family with a young daughter fighting can cer. He quickly outgrew cooking in his garage and opened his first restau rant in Winter Park in 2009. There are now nine locations all in Florida. The latest opened in Tallahassee recently and the Gainesville restaurant opened two years ago at the previous McAllisterÂ’s site in Butler Plaza. Mike says that the number one favorite menu item is the Angus Brisket and number two is the Southern Pulled Pork ($8.49). Number one favorite side dish is 4R BBQ Beans and number two is Mac & Cheese. There are numerous other menu items to choose from including St. Louis Style Ribs half slab ($14.99 with two sides), smoked Â¼ chicken ($6.99), Santa Maria tri-tip steak ($8.49), Prime Rib ($9.99) and the Six Shooter ($7.99) which is cheese grits topped with pulled pork, slaw, pickles, jalape nos and 4R BBQ sauce. You get the picture, and there is lots more to choose from. I suggest you go online to get the full picture before you go in. I think next time IÂ’m going to try their Smokehouse Cuban which is smoked pork and ham, mustard, pickles, onion rings and provolone stacked high, pressed then grilled to perfection ($8.49). The bakery, which I thought was separate from the restaurant, is not. They are one and the same. The sweets were absolutely tantalizing but I just didnÂ’t have any room left to try one. It would be a great place to run in and buy something sweet cause there is an outside door right by it. So, you might want to try that and just eat on the way home. How about Crispy CrÃ¨me Bread Pudding or Bananas Foster Bread Pudding or Fried Oreos (3) plus every kind of cupcake you can think of? When you crave barbecue, sweets and southern hos pitality Â— plus go Gators Â— try 4 Rivers. If you arenÂ’t happy for any rea son, see Mike Yamauchi cause his and 4RÂ’s goal is to bring people together over great food. 4 Rivers Smokehouse is located at 3262 SW 35th Blvd. (Butler Plaza). Telephone number is 844 474-8377. Monday Â– Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Closed Sundays. 5 star brisket at GainesvilleÂ’s 4 Rivers TASTE BUDDIES Genie NormanTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.com Q Genie Norman is a Columbia County resident who loves good food and fun.

T he Ag-Science students of Fort White middle and high schools look forward to sharing their work with the community on Monday. The students, led by Wayne Oelfke, will be offering an Open House at Fifth Generation Farms from 5-7 p.m. The students would like to share the results of their Â“Nutrients for LifeÂ” project, which is part of a nationwide effort to improve plant nutrient literacy by students and the communities they are part of. Oelfke said the main objective is to share the work of the students with the community. He hopes Â“to convey to the community the studentsÂ’ development of critical thinking skills to address local issues,Â” he said. The topics the students are addressing for this project are plant nutrients, water, the environment, and food security. However they will utilize these critical thinking skills as they develop into young adults who become leaders of the community. Oelfke said his role in the classroom has been to stimulate sixth-grade minds to understand the role of nutrients, sunlight and water to sustain the human population through plants. The Open House format will include stations where students will briefly share one aspect of their project. Austin Maddox, an eleventh-grade student at Fort White High School, has been involved with the project the past two years. Austin said Â“residents are concerned about nutrient losses into our springs and rivers. It is important to share the methods we have learned to micro manage nutrients. ... and it is important to feed the world, and added nutrients equates to quality, nutri tious food, that is healthier for you. It is also important that we have local food sources. The resources of Columbia County offer a good opportunity for local production to meet local needs.Â” Students began the proj ect planting vegetables on the school Land Lab. Noah Anuez is a sev enth-grade student at Fort White Middle School who played a large part in the project by installing a drip irrigation system to the vegetable crops in the Land Lab. He said he has also been Â“managing the greenhouse, producting lettuce and cucumbers.Â” Noah was proud to report, Â“we are implementing a Farm to School program, by providing six pounds of lettuce per day to the mid dle school cafeteria.Â” He said there is a buzz sur rounding the new green house, and Â“teachers and students are beginning to ask specifically for the school grown lettuce.Â” UF/IFAS Extension in Columbia County has been involved with the project since the first year, in 2011. That year, the students were awarded first place nationally for their work, and received their award on-stage at the state FFA Convention. Extension agents, Mace Bauer and Nichelle Demorest, are familiar faces around campus, helping the stu dents at various times of the year, and delivering advanced information that is regionally specific to the conditions of North Florida. Additionally, a core group of Master Gardener volunteers have been instrumen tal in supporting the students. Mace Bauer, Agronomy Extension agent in Columbia County attempts to deliver infor mation that will support the students efforts regarding nutrient and irrigation management. Â“The role of Extension is to deliver the research of the University of Florida, to improve the lives of the residents. This information needs to be provided in a manner that the end-user can under stand,Â” he said. Â“In this case, we repackage the science to improve under standing at the sixth grade level.Â” This Open House is the ultimate in outreach and Extension. It is an opportunity for the students to share the sci ence with a broad group of community members, while doing it in a fun way. For example, one student will serve local ly grown and prepared mustard greens, while another will be educating consumers about the importance of nutrients to the human diet. When asked the about the take home message of the Nutrients for Life project, Oelfke suggested, Â“The focus of the local project is on management of resources, nutrients and water, at a reduced risk to the environ ment.Â” When asked who should attend, Maddox and Anuez suggested, Â“Community members interested in learning about blending technolo gy into production, to pro duce sustainable, locally grown foods.Â” Fort White Ag students share Â‘Nutrients for LifeÂ’ IF YOU GO WHAT: Fort White Middle School Â“Nutrients for LifeÂ” Open HouseWHERE: Fifth Generation Farms, 3739 US Hwy 90.
