Tourist activity at Ichetucknee State Park nearly tripled in March, according to park officials. Mebane Cory-Ogburn, Ichetucknee Springs State Park manager, said gate sales for March totaled more than $15,000 compared with March 2014, which saw about $6,500. The park system was unable able to provide the total number of visitors because it has changed its Ichetucknee is latest spring break hot spot College kids flocked to the river in March, say local tourism officials. SPRINGS continued on 7A Road work to be done by mid-July, says FDOTBy NICK ROLLISONSpecial to the ReporterConstruction continues at the Interstate 75 and US 90 interchange in an effort to improve traffic flow by adding turn lanes on I-75 off ramps and extending turn lanes from US 90 to I-75. “It’s going pretty well,” said Gina Busscher, District 2 Florida Department of Transportation public information officer. The $3 million project, which started in January, is scheduled to be completed by mid-July, but could be pushed further back, depending on weather conditions. Outlined in late January by FDOT, the main improvements are the addition of left turn lanes on both the northbound and southbound exit ramps. Other changes include the widening of the southbound ramp by about 500 feet back from US 90’s intersection. A total of three lanes with two left turn lanes and one right turn lane will be added to the southbound ramp. The northbound off-ramp is also being widened to provide an extra left turn and an additional right turn lane, ROAD WORK continued on 3A Progress continues, though work is a little behind schedule.

LONDON F rom Prince Charles to the bettors at the corner store, everyone in Britain was hoping for a girl. The Duchess of Cambridge delighted her nation and royal enthusiasts around the world Saturday by delivering one such princess. The royal birth was greeted with cheers and elated cries of “Hip, hip, hooray!” outside St. Mary’s Hospital in London, where fans and the world’s media have waited for days. The baby — Prince William and Kate’s second child — was born Saturday morning and weighed 8 pounds 3 ounc es (3.7 kilograms), officials said. She is fourth in line to the throne and the fifth great-grandchild of 89-year-old Queen Elizabeth II. Britain hasn’t welcomed a princess born this high up the line of succession for decades. It may be a day or two before the world knows what to call her. When Prince George, her older brother, was born in 2013, royal officials waited two days before announcing his name. Speculation about the new royal’s name has been frenetic, and all the top bets for the baby’s name have been for girls: Alice and Charlotte are the clear favorites, followed by Elizabeth, Victoria and Diana — all names with strong royal connections. Royal children are usually given several names — the baby’s brother was christened George Alexander Louis — so the princess’s name could incorporate more than one of those guesses. Anticipation had been building for weeks after Kate, 33, told a well-wisher she was due around late April. Still, journalists were caught slightly off guard when she delivered barely three hours after checking into the hospital at dawn Saturday. William, 32, was present at the birth. The couple later emerged on the hospital steps with the infant to briefly pose for photographers before leaving for their home at nearby Kensington Palace. Kate, who wore a yellow-and-white floral shift dress by British designer Jenny Packham, held the sleeping baby wrapped in a white shawl. The couple looked relaxed but didn’t answer any questions. William earlier told reporters he was “very happy” as he brought young George to the hospi tal to meet his baby sister. George, look ing slightly alarmed by all the cameras, waved dutifully at the adoring crowds. The queen and senior royals were “delighted with the news,” officials said. The queen marked the occasion by wearing a pink ensemble while carrying out an official engagement in North Yorkshire, 250 miles (400 kilometers) north of London. Cheers and chants of “Princess! Princess!” rang out from the hundreds of well-wishers and tourists gathered outside the palace and the hospital as soon as the news was announced. One fan who had camped out outside the hospital for days danced with joy. “I’m top of the world,” said royal camp er Terry Hutt, 80, decked out in patriotic Union Jack gear. He did not expect the birth to happen as soon as it did but said: “Babies come when they’re ready.” “If Diana was here, she’d be very, very proud,” he added, referring to the late Princess Diana, William’s mother. The news was announced on social media sites like Twitter as well as by a traditional bulletin on a gilded easel in front of Buckingham Palace — a prac tice that dates to 1837. At 21 months, George is third in line to the throne, after his grandfather Prince Charles and his dad William. The newborn princess becomes the fourth in line, bumping Uncle Harry to fifth. 2A SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2015 DAILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 MADISON N orth Florida Community College commencement ceremony will be May 5 at Van H. Priest Auditorium. This year’s commencement speaker, offering the keynote address to graduates during this special moment in their educa tional journey, is Representative Elizabeth Porter. Representative Porter was first elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2010, and subsequently re-elected in 2014. She specifically serves District 10 including part of Alachua and all of Baker, Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee Counties. Representative Porter also serves as the House of Representatives Chair of the Higher Education & Workforce Committee. Prior to being elected in 2010, Representative Porter served on the Columbia County Commission representing District Five and as Chair of the commission.

In 2014, She received the Florida Farm Bureau 2014 Champion for Agriculture award and was named the 2014 Rural Economic Development Champion by the North Florida Rural Economic Development Partnership. Ichetucknee Springs Dashboard launched LIVE OAK — The Suwannee River Water Management District is expanding its capabil ity to share water quality data with the public through this springs dashboard. The new Ichetucknee Springs Dashboard offers users water flow and water quality data being collected and monitored by a collaboration of the District, US Geological Survey (USGS) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The springs dashboards offer users a nearly continuous view of the hydrology and water qual ity of springs. At Ichetucknee Springs, data are collected from Blue Hole and the head spring and updated daily on the dash board. Visitors to the site will be able to access both historic and current data. The dashboards can be viewed at http://www.mysuwanneeriver.org/dash-boards/index.html . Ichetucknee Springs is a first magnitude spring group, and one of five springs where the District began collecting contin uous real-time water quality data last year. Over the next several months the District and USGS will be instrumenting addition al springs, such as Peacock Springs, Lafayette Blue Springs, Allen Mill Pond Spring and Alapaha Rise with similar equip ment. “Scientists and laymen alike have shown great interest in the water data. We are pleased to be able to share data with the public,” said Ann Shortelle, District Executive Director. The dashboards have inter active maps, continuous water level and discharge as well as water quality data. Visitors may explore land uses within the springshed and see the mapped extent of cave systems for some springs. Additional first magni tude springs will be added to the dashboard throughout the coming year.Shands honors own during Nurses Week LAKE CITY — Most people only visit hospitals occasion ally, when a loved one is sick or a friend is having a baby. Employees at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center are different in this regard. Each day, dozens of employees come to the hospital to provide com passionate, personalized care for friends, neighbors and those they do not know. Providers at Shands work together around the clock, seven days a week to make healthcare available any time it is needed, whether for one person or more in times of community crisis or natural disaster. National Hospital Week, established in 1953 and cele brated this year from May 10 through May 16, honors the dedication of all the men and women who deliver and support the care provided in hospitals. The dates overlap those for Nurses Week (May 6 to 12 this year) and were chosen to coin cide with Florence Nightingale’s birthday in recognition of her efforts to revolutionize the way hospitals were run in the United States. Although much has changed in healthcare since the midto late-1800s when Nightingale cared for patients, one thing has remained con stant: hospitals are foundations of their communities, nurturing and caring for individuals from all walks of life. This Hospital Week, Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center is pleased to recognize our associates and other health care providers for their ongoing commitment to the community and thank them for tireless ded ication to the well-being of our neighbors.

From staff reportsA cache of stolen firearms, cell phones and home electronics was found in the bedroom of a local 15-yearold, police said. While investigating a series of burglaries at Windsong Apartments, 850 SW Symphony Loop, Investigator Ivan Useche of LCPD encountered resident Darryl E. Mitchell who was wanted for cultivation of marijuana, according to an LCPD news release. Mitchell was taken into custody then directed officers to a handgun hidden in his bedroom in apartment 208, the release said. While recovering the handgun, several pieces of electronics were in plain view matching the description of the items previously stolen around the complex days earlier, the release said. The release said offi cers later returned with a search warrant and recovered the following items: Grendel .380 caliber handgun; Glock 22 .40 caliber handgun; Taurus .380 caliber handgun; ammunition; two pellet rifles; drug paraphernalia (pipes, bongs, grinder, digital scale, baggies); iPhone; Samsung Galaxy; Sony PS Vita; X-Box 360; Nintendo Wii; video games; and a pair of Sony Bluetooth gaming headphones. Several other cell phones which were stolen during these burglaries had already been placed for sale or sold on the “Lake City Buy/Sell/Trade” page on Facebook, described by police as “a common place for stolen phones and tablets to be sold locally.” As officers were collecting evidence, a buyer who saw the PS Vita for sale on Facebook texted a phone recovered from Mitchell to see how much the item was, the release said. The items reported stolen as part of two burglaries reported to LCPD were returned to their owners. The investigation is ongoing, the release said. Report: Teen had stolen firearms, games Mitchell From staff reportsA third and final suspect has surrendered to authorities in a deadly shooting near Annie Mattox Park. Ronyeah Wright, 19, turned himself in at the Columbia County Detention Facility Thursday and was immediately released on $50,000 bond, according to police. Two other suspects were previously taken into custody and one, a juvenile, remains jailed. The Lake City Police Department responded to a shooting near Annie Mattox Park that left three people wounded March 31. Two victims were treated locally while the third, Travarious Frank Claridy, 16, was flown to the UF Health Center in Gainesville, where he later died. The shootings took place after “some sort of altercation" broke out within a crowd of 20-25 people gathered at the park, according to Lake City Police Department spokesman Mike Lee. Craig Strickland, LCPD’s public information officer, said he could neither confirm nor deny that the shootings were gang-related. In response to an arrest warrant, Bennie L. Jordan, 40, came to the Hamilton County Jail Tuesday with a bondsman and turned himself in, only to be freed immediately on $100,000 bond, LCPD reported. The other suspect in the shooting, Raeshaun Jordan, 16, turned himself in to authorities on April 20, police said Tuesday. He is currently being held without bond at the Department of Juvenile Justice in Gainesville, according to LCPD. The three face charges of aggravated assault with a firearm and Bennie L. Jordan also faces a charge of possession of firearm by a convicted felon, jail records show.Third park shooting suspect turns self in Wright From staff reportsFORT WHITE — Authorities arrested a Fort White man at gun point after he failed to stop and led them on a 30 mph car chase through Fort White during an attempted traffic stop Friday morning. Casey Alan Davis, no age provided, was charged with driving while license suspended/revoked (second conviction) and given a traffic warning for driving with faulty equipment (broken tail lights) stemming from the incident. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on $6,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriff’s Office reports, Deputy Aaron McKenzie was on routine patrol in Fort White when he saw a green Chevrolet truck traveling west on Wilson Springs Road with a broken tail light. McKenzie attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle and activated his emergency lights and siren, but the vehicle continued traveling north, at a speed of about 30 mph. The vehicle turned down several streets and finally stopped near a Trenton Terrace address, where another deputy assisted McKenzie in the felony traffic stop. The driver, later identified as Davis, ignored multiple requests by deputies to roll down the vehicle’s driver side window and only complied with authorities after McKenzie used his microphone inside his car and its loud speaker asking him to roll down the window. At gun point, Davis was ordered to the back of McKenzie’s patrol vehicle and taken into custody. While being handcuffed Davis reportedly told deputies he didn’t want the vehicle to be towed, so he drove it to a place where he thought it would be safe for him to leave it. Deputies did not find any other passengers in the vehicle and did not find signs of other criminal activity, reports said. Davis agreed to speak to McKenzie after his constitutional rights were read when McKenzie asked him why he ran. Davis told authorities his license are suspended and he wanted the truck to be at a place where it could be left because the vehicle did not belong to him and he didn’t want it to be towed. Authorities attempted to contact the vehicle’s registered owner, but could not reach the person, so the vehicle was towed away, reports said.Man leads cops on chase in Fort White Davis which will allow traffic turning left onto Commerce Boulevard to be protected by the traffic signal. In order to accommodate the change the existing median just east of I-75 will be removed. Changes to US 90 also include the extension of the westbound left turn lane to southbound I-75 by about 500 feet, starting at the Commerce Boulevard intersection. The eastbound left turn lane will also be extended back to just west of the I-75 overpass for about 250 feet, beginning at the southbound on-ramp. Also in the works is a complete resurfacing of US 90 from west of Florida Gateway Boulevard to just east of Commerce Boulevard, as well as re-striping the intersection to provide additional left turn lanes. Right now, construction workers from Anderson Columbia of Lake City have completed their drainage work and cleared the area for widening (removing the landscaping and taking out the medians at the interchange) Busscher said. She said they’ve also poured some of the concrete for the piers that will protect the center posts under the I-75 overpass, as well as added pavement on the off ramps. Finally, the entire interchange will be paved and new overhead signs will be installed and traffic signals replaced by mast arms, similar to the design now seen at US 90 and Branford Highway. Although the project is going well, it is slightly behind schedule, but Busscher attributed the delays to weather. “The community response has been favorable,” Busscher said. “We’ve not received a lot of negative feedback from anyone.” Busscher attributed this to most of the work being done at night, Monday through Thursday and Sunday, between 8 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. Busscher said that Anderson Columbia has chosen not to work Friday and Saturday due to the heavy volume of traffic, but this might change in the future.

To the Editor:I read where we are going to have “open season” on bears. There are too many bears around, so they need to be killed. The animals have no place to go. Their food sources are disappearing. These animals are hungry and just trying to survive. Please, let’s give these bears a chance to live and do our part to protect them. There has got to be an alternative to slaughtering them. J. E.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Emily Lawson, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Some new reasons to fear a Hillary Clinton presidency W hile some defenders say ho hum, Hillary Clinton’s failure as secretary of state to follow through on a pledge aimed at reducing the possibility of conflict of interest was either inex cusably negligent or deceptive. The lapses relate to the Clinton Foundation and former President Bill Clinton personally raking in millions from foreign interests while Hillary made decisions that could benefit or hurt them. At least one episode has national security sig nificance, and when you put it all together, we come to a big question: Is she anywhere near trustworthy enough to be president? There are ready-at-hand dodges, many citizens may not get it or care, and examples of press sentiment in her favor have hardly gone into hiding. Even so, the bare facts as reported by The New York Times speak loudly, clearly and ruinously about what transpired. First off, it’s important to under stand what Hillary Clinton pledged to the White House on becoming secretary of state — that the Clinton Foundation would publicly name all donors. This was no inconsequential promise. She was America’s top diplomat. Mess up on something as easy and fundamental as this, and you’re telling leaders all over the world to be wary. Very, very wary. But she did mess up. The person in charge of the foundation during that time, husband Bill, merrily embraced gobs of cash from foreign donors, and among the undisclosed gifts were millions from people with an interest in completing the sale of a Canadian uranium-mining outfit to a Russian agency. The deal, which would give the Russian government control of a fifth of U.S. uranium assets needed to keep American nuclear power plants going, had to be approved by the U.S. government. Nine agencies each had veto power, including the State Department headed by Hillary Clinton, who apparently said noth ing. Despite loud objections from some in Congress, the arrangement was OK’d. Supposedly, the new Russianowned company would still not be allowed to export uranium from the United States, but it has already exported some to Canada. Some of that may have found its way to Japan and Europe and there are those worried some could even find its way to Iran someday for the construction of nuclear weapons. Well, this decision was really beneath the secretary of state, some say, but the Times tells of experts saying it “seemed to warrant attention at the highest levels.” And even if Hillary Clinton did not become officially connected with the foundation until after she left the secretary’s position, she should obviously have taken great care to be told of any transactions pertinent to her duties so they could be reported. The lame response from her presidential campaign and some commentators is that there was no instance of bestowing favors to get money, and probably not, but being asleep at the wheel can cause mighty crashes, too. It is even pos sible that she desired deniability and did not want to be told about the donations or that she knew and looked the other way. Some say she may have been in violation of a constitutional pro hibition against federal officials taking gifts or fees from foreign countries. Others dispute it, say ing gifts to the foundation were not gifts to her. Maybe it does not count, but there were also vast amounts Bill Clinton received from some of those foreign donors for speeches, including $500,000 from a Russian bank pushing the uranium pact. As a Washington Post story says, such “proceeds ... benefited them both.” The foundation, to be sure, has done notable good, but its man agement was once described as a mess and questions have been raised about enormous waste hardly benefiting the needy. Hillary Clinton has good deeds to her credit, too, but count it all up and there has been a great deal amiss. Consider that there’s a lot more to this issue, consider the foreign and domestic issues that a new President Clinton would have to face, and ask what her behavior tells you. ‘The Ugly Chinese’ Reader: Save bears from hunters I n times more innocent than these, Eugene Burdick and William J. Lederer wrote a best-sell er, “The Ugly American,” circa 1958, about a well-meaning American bureaucrat who set out to repeat the success of the Marshall Plan in what were accurately called, with no intention of hurting anyone’s feelings, “the undeveloped countries.” Good intentions were not enough. The new plan didn’t work, foiled by hubris and pretension in the new class of American bureaucrats. The unattractive hero understood, but couldn’t turn the tide. He was dismissed as “the Ugly American” of his book. His superficial characteristics, with less than glamorous personal appearance, were transferred to his opponents, and “the ugly American” became the name for those in the growing horde of American tourists who invaded the world with a peculiar bumptiousness that flouted all the local conventions and traditions. With their mighty greenback dollars, the American tourist smoothed a few ruffled edges and the foreigners learned to live with the new pest, just as in later years they would learn to live with obnoxious and newly enriched German visitors. The dollar, and the mark, ruble, drachma and the whatever, do that. So it was inevitable that as China began to exercise its new economic muscle, Chinese tourists — armed with their millions, $117 million last year — became the world’s big spenders, called “the Ugly Chinese.” Aggressive shopping for tax-free imports in Hong Kong rubbed the local Cantonese the wrong way, and a habit of clearing the throat to spit in public places, or in a Japanese-style hotel room in Tokyo, became cliches. Anyone who has gone to the movies in Hong Kong recalls the loud honking, hocking and spitting that sometimes threatened to drown the movie’s sound track. This has attracted the attention of President Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. On a visit to the Maldives, Mr. Xi warned his countrymen that “[we] should be civilized when traveling abroad. “Don’t throw empty mineral water bottles in the coral, please.” More serious affronts have been chronicled: Hair-pulling fights over how to recline a seat aboard an airliner, arguments over paying for hot water for noodles brought along in a shopping bag, attempts to open an airliner door in flight to let in a little fresh air, and teenage graffiti scrawled on national monuments. The Beijing government is trying to learn how to use “soft power,” like spending billions to establish China studies departments in foreign universities (and perhaps to do a little spying on the side), all to avoid riling the natives. To crack down on miscre ants and the ill-mannered, Beijing now requires a certain quota of “civilized” travelers to accompany groups of loud Chinese travelers. But “the Ugly Chinese,” like the Ugly Americans before them, are likely to be a permanent fixture on the landscape. Tourists everywhere, loud or not, spend money. “A tourist is worth a bale of cotton,” a famous Southern governor once remarked, “and he’s a lot easier to pick.” Q Washington Times Jay AmbroseSpeaktoJay@aol.com Q Jay Ambrose, formerly Washington di rector of editorial policy for Scripps Howard newspapers and the editor of dailies in El Paso, Texas and Denver, is a columnist living in Colorado.

Commerce Dr., Suite 115, Lake City for the event was great and they’ve seen more than triple the number of car entries for this year’s event. Close to 150 vehicles were registered in the event and at least 50 other antique cars and trucks were on the premises for the event. “There’s anything from the 1930s to modern day vehicles here,” Kopp said. “We’ve got a full variety and it’s people that love cars, not just necessarily antiques or trucks, it’s all cars.” Car show entries were from Columbia County and surrounding areas including Trenton, Gainesville, High Springs and beyond. From bounce houses to a chili cook-off to Stanley Crawford cranking his 1936 custom-made pickup to let people hear its engine purr, the audience was able to enjoy plenty of sights and sounds associated with custom automobile shows. Nick Copeland, of Live Oak, had one of the more popular vehicles at the event. Copeland had multiple entries in the show, but his 1954 Chevy 3100 pickup truck has been a crowd-pleaser and award winner around the state, he said. Copeland, a Suwannee County Schools employee, said he worked on restoring the truck for about nine months until he completed it after his father died. “It was my dad’s truck and this kind of help me get over losing him,” he said. “It kept me busy.” The truck was originally restored by Copeland’s father in 1993 and his father put 104,000 miles on the vehicle and Copeland restored it later himself as a budget build, doing all the restoration work himself. Copeland’s project was a success and the truck was featured in June 2014 Custom Classic Trucks Magazine photo shoot. Chip Foose, a personality with the Overhaulin’ television show on Velocity network, also sketched and autographed a rendering of Copeland’s truck. “It made me feel like at least the truck is something, because he thought highly of it,” Copeland said. “It’s one out of 300 vehicles that he drew.” The Derby Dash Car and Truck Show committee has been meeting about once a week since October to plan this year’s event. They say next year’s event will be bigger and better. Proceeds raised during the event will go to Haven Hospice and other local veteran organizations. “It’s been the city helping us out and people like Jackie Kite, and Crista Thomas from the Lake City Police Department, and car club members,” Stanley said. “Everybody pitched in and made this a success. I think of lot of the success is due to it’s for a good cause — it’s for Haven Hospice and local veteran organizations. What a better way than to raise money and have fun at the same time.” DERBYContinued From 1A TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterStanley Crawford (far right) revs the engine of his 1936 pickup truck as he tells car show visitors about the three years of restoration work he and others put into the vehicle.

Summers Elementary ran a total of 19,049 miles. ‘From January to April, you could see the kids slimming down,’ said Summers assistant principal Robert Cooper (far right). Cooper attributes the win to vigorous promotion of exercise and programs like the morning track club, which runs every morning. The top three girls and boys will be treated to a trip to Tallahassee for the 2015 ACC Outdoor Track & Field Championships on May 15. Isaac Kneen, 9, leaps onto a box as he exercises during the Get Fit Lake City Finale Friday.

They came from literally all over the country.” In addition to canoeing and kayaking, the springtime visitors also spent lots of time tubing on the river. “They were walking up to the mid-point, they’d get on the river, float down and just walk back to the south parking lot,” Ogburn said. She said other visitor activities included swimming in the head springs and hiking trails. “I think people are really starting to get the idea that we really are open every day of the year,” Ogburn said, noting the park’s interpretive programs were also enhanced and the park’s education center is becoming more popular, further adding to attendance. “We also increased our sunrise canoe trips this year and we’ll have new interpretive programs throughout the summer.” It is not clear whether widely-reported incidents of spring break violence in Panama City and elsewhere in Florida may have also contributed to the rising numbers. The park’s trams aren’t currently running but Ogburn said most visitors were self-sufficient and there was no need for additional park personnel even with the higher numbers. “The staff was doing their regular, routine maintenance, just answering more questions,” she said. Local environmental ists said the added guests would not put a strain on the Ichetucknee ecosystem. John Jopling, Ichetucknee Alliance President, said human interaction causes minimal issues compared to other problems that have arisen in recent years. “There is certainly some incidental harm done to the Ichetucknee environment by human interaction, but that harm is so insignificant compared to the other problems facing the Ichetucknee,” he said. “The problems we’re focused on are not how many feet are dragging on the river bottom, but on the fact that our governmental agencies are allowing too much water to be taken from the river and too many nitrates allowed in that are turning our waters green. If [the Ichetucknee River] is properly fed, the harm caused by humans is pretty insignificant.” John Wheeler, a member of The Ichetucknee Partnership, agreed. “In the month of March, like all winter months, the main activity at the springs is canoeing and kayaking and that’s very low environmental impact,” Wheeler said. “They don’t tend to get out the boat, walk on the river bottom or increase turbidity by stirring up silt. High numbers of visitors during the winter months have a very low environmental impact because the main activity is canoeing and kayaking and those users tend to stay in their boats.” Jopling encouraged the current trend. “We want Floridians to visit our springs,” he said. “We’re delighted more people are seeing the Ichetucknee and we hope they are taken by it and will talk to those who we trusted to take care of the Ichetucknee.” SPRINGSContinued From 1A FILEFriends hold on to each others’ rafts to stay together as they drift down the Ichetucknee River last September.

It was no surprise when the winner of the toughness award was announced. The award’s recipient not only is an overwhelm ing force on the mat but also exhibits the kind of mental strength that can not be taught. Josh Walker accepted the award that day and hopes to earn plenty more as he takes his talents to the collegiate level. Walker signed last week to Neosho County College in Chanute, Kansas. “I think I’ll do well there,” Walker said. “Everything I ever dreamed of is all com ing into fruition. It feels great.” Walker says, outside of the pristine facilities and beautiful campus, the pro gram’s prestige is what ultimately pushed him to commit. Over a thousand miles away from his hometown Lake City, Walker already admits he will be homesick but is more than excited to start a new chapter. “I’m ready to get out of Lake City for a couple years but Lake City is my home and I definitely will be coming back after col lege,” Walker said. “I’m ready to make Kansas my home for the next two years.” For the heavyweight standout, it’s been a rocky road to success. After an impressive freshman showing, Walker was ruled academically ineligible for the follow ing two seasons — col lege itself seemed murky — wrestling in college no less. But Walker maintained his perseverance and became eligible for what was a memorable, domi nating senior season. He was a state-placer this season and finished sixth at the state meet. Josh Walker signs with Neosho College. FILE Josh Walker prepares to take down a Clay County wrestler earlier this season. Walker signed with Neosho Country College on Wednesday. Billy D, you will be missed B illy Donovan was more than a bas ketball coach at Florida. He was an architect. Before Donovan took over the program in 1996, Florida only had transient success. Yes, the Gators made the Final Four in 1994 but they quickly regressed back into mediocrity with a first round exit the following year before posting a 1216 record and no NCAA Tournament appearance the year after. That led to Lon Kruger’s resignation, the hiring of Donovan, and thus, the beginning of a championship blueprint. It took Donovan just two seasons to lay the foundation of what would eventually become one of college basketball’s great est empires. In his third season he led the Gators to a 22-9 record, just the school’s fifth 20+ win sea son in its history and the beginning of 16 straight campaigns with at least 20 victories. That season Florida made the NCAA Tournament and advanced to its third Sweet Sixteen appearance. The following season he led the Gators to their second ever regular season WALKER continued on 2B $ 5 BURRITOS ALL DAY BILLY D continued on 3B

Good Scores for the Good Old Boys were: Dan Stephens 77 (38-39), Emerson Darst 79 (39-40), Bob Wheary 79 (37-42) and Marc Risk 79 (37-42). “Being a teenage boy in high school is tough and it’s not always easy to main-tain those grades,” CHS head coach Kevin Warner said. “But the fact is that he came back after two years. It’s a lot harder to come back. It says a lot about somebody.” Warner has coached Walker since the sixth grade. Walker becomes the fourth CHS wrestler under coach Warner to wrestle collegiately. Alongside teammate and Campbell signee Kaleb Warner, the two anchored CHS wrestling this season all the way to state meet finishes. Walker now joins the Panthers, where he’ll be under coach Wayne Petterson. Petterson has coached three national champions and 19 All-Americans. NCC is known as a pipeline into notable Division-I wrestling programs, and Walker plans to be the next on the way. “It’s fantastic,” Warner said. “As coaches we put a lot of effort into the kids, not just on the wrestling mat but making sure they’re doing right aca-demically. When you’re a teenager, four years seems like a long time. We know that high school flies by and we try to prepare them for life beyond high school.” Despite some dark setbacks, Walker has a bright future to look forward to — he’s a Tiger turned Panther.

The 24-year-old Reid (5’9”, 185) does not yet have any Arena Football League game experience, though he did compete in training camp with the New Orleans VooDoo prior to the start of this season. Reid’s first stint in professional football came with the St. Louis Rams, as he signed with the team and participated in training camp leading up to the 2014 National Football League sea-son. The Rams waived Reid on August 30 of that year. Prior to the start of his professional career, Reid had transferred to Valdosta State University for his final year of college eligibility, but suffered a knee injury before the start of the 2012 season and did not play a down for the Blazers. Reid began his collegiate career at Florida State University, where he played cornerback and served as a kick returner during his three years in Tallahassee. As a junior in 2011, Reid totaled 32 tack-les (27 solo) and one tackle for loss while hauling in two interceptions and breaking up five passes. The previ-ous season, he racked up career-high totals of 65 total tackles, 14 pass breakups and three interceptions. As a freshman in 2009, Reid totaled 23 tackles, six pass breakups and two picks. Reid proved to be a dangerous return man through-out his time at Florida State, totaling 1,553 kickoff return yards and 1,117 punt return yards in three seasons. Reid returned a punt for a touch-down in each of those three campaigns, and in 2009 led the country with an aver-age of 18.43 yards per punt return. A native of Valdosta, Georgia, Reid attended Lowndes High School. The Sharks also announced Wednesday that wide receiver Prechae Rodriguez has been placed on inactive reserve. Following the transactions, the Jacksonville roster remains at the League maxi-mum of 24 active players.Former FSU star Reid signs with AFL’s Sharks Brown, Shaw and others shine at Country Club COURTESYThe Natural 8th grader Logan Sikes was awarded the “Pitcher of the Y ear” Award and Academic Honor Roll Award.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2015 3B By CLIFF BRUNTAssociated PressOKLAHOMA CITY — It’s safe to say new Thunder coach Billy Donovan will stay in the NBA this time. Donovan jokes that he has coached in the league before — eight years ago, he was hired by the Orlando Magic, only to change his mind the fol-lowing day and return to the University of Florida. He said that decision had nothing to do with the Magic, and that it was more about his relation-ships with his family and Florida. The 49-year-old coach said it had to “take some-thing very, very special” to make him leave a pro-gram he led to two national championships, four Final Fours and seven Elite Eights in 19 seasons. He carefully considered the situation with his inner circle and didn’t listen to outside voices before accepting the offer. “I wanted to be respectful to the University of Florida and I wanted to be respectful to the Thunder,” he said. “I think you start talking to a lot of differ-ent people, I think it can cloud things and things get out. It was really more about what was best for me and best for my family at that moment in time.” The pressure will be immediate — the Thunder have gone to three con-ference finals and the NBA Finals once since moving to Oklahoma City in 2008-09, but they haven’t won it all. Now, Donovan inherits a team with 2013-14 MVP Kevin Durant and 2014-15 scor-ing champion Russell Westbrook. Plus, Durant can become a free agent after next season, giving Donovan little time to build a strong relation-ship with the star. Still, Donovan is optimistic and more focused on the process than the results. “I really feel like it’s a great opportunity for me to grow as a person, and really be challenged as a person in a lot of different ways,” Donovan said. Former UF coach inherits Durant and Westbrook. Oklahoma City Thunder introduce Billy Donovan By BETH HARRISAssociated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. — American Pharoah won the 141st Kentucky Derby on Saturday, ridden by last year’s Derby-winning jock-ey, Victor Espinoza. The 5-2 favorite was in contention at the top of the stretch and pulled clear at the finish for his fifth win in six starts. “He’s been a special horse since I first rode him,” said Espinoza, who now has three Derby wins. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert got his fourth Derby win, and also sent out third-place finisher Dortmund. Firing Line was second.The time was 2:03.02 for the 1 1/4 miles. The largest Derby crowd ever — 170,513 — looked on under sunny skies. The four Derby wins ties Baffert with D. Wayne Lukas and Herbert “Derby Dick” Thompson for sec-ond on the all-time list. “We were ready to rumble,” Baffert said. The race unfolded with Dortmund setting the pace and Firing Line tracking in second. American Pharoah sat comfortably in third. Turning for home, American Pharoah angled outside of the other two and launched a rally for a one-length victory. “Turning for home, I thought I got it. The other horse was right next to me. I couldn’t just blow him away,” Espinoza said. American Pharoah paid $7.80, $5.80, $4.20. Firing Line returned $8.40 and $5.40 while Dortmund paid $4.20 to show. Private Zone wins Churchill Downs Private Zone was the front-running winner in the $500,000 Churchill Downs Stakes as Bayern faded badly Saturday in his season debut. Many in the record crowd of 170,513 at Churchill Downs expected a victo-rious return for Bayern, the 4-5 favorite making his first start since winning the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita in November. Bayern, trained by Bob Baffert, wound up sixth. “He didn’t have the kick he usually does,” jockey Martin Garcia said. “He didn’t handle the track at all. He didn’t like it.”American Pharoah leads all in 141st Kentucky Derby COURTESYPictured are one of the three teams that placed during the scramble tournament at Quail Heights.From Staff ReportsThe MGA three person scramble tournament was a great success. Quail Heights had 25 teams battle it out for the $5000 purse on Saturday April 25. The team of Richard Gaines, Earl Biggs and Bill McDonnell took the win at 15 under par only by one shot over the team of Tammy Gainey, Mike Kahlich and Keith Hudson at 14 under par. Third place went to Mike McCraine, Kevin Roberts and Kirk Koon at 10 under par. Jack Tuggle took the win in the Top of the Hill game with a +8, while Bob Sonntag was only one behind with a +7. Quail Heights had 28 players play in the Wednesday Blitz/Skins game with some awesome scores. Robert Jaeger took 1st with a +11, Ronnie Ash in 2nd with a +10, Jack Tuggle in 3rd with a +9 and Chuck Slaymaker fin-ishing up in 4th with a +4. There were only four skins on the course with Jack Tuggle taking two skins leaving Chet Carter, and Kevin Parks each one. Closest to the pins went to #3 Steve Nail, #5 Dave Zeman, #11 Rick Cahill, #15 Jack Tuggle and #17 Chet Carter.Three teams take home awards at Quail Heights SEC Championship and the school’s second Final Four appearance. Florida defeat-ed North Carolina in the national semifinals before falling to Michigan State in the national championship. But the empire was rising. Three of Donovan’s players from that squad (Mike Miller, Donnell Harvey and Udonis Haslem) all went onto the NBA after that season, two years after Jason Williams was the first of Donovan’s to make the jump to the association. Though Harvey turned out to be a bust, the undrafted Haslem turned into a three-time champion with the Miami Heat while Williams and Miller combined to win three themselves in Miami. Those four players were the beginning of the influx of talent that Donovan would send to the NBA over the next decade and a half. Donovan had 15 players either drafted or signed by NBA teams since he took over the program in 1996, with David Lee being the next in 2005. Donovan wasn’t just a great coach; he was an exceptional recruiter and evaluator of talent. Never was that more clear than during the 2006 and 2007 college basket-ball seasons, when he put together one of the greatest runs in the sport’s history. Donovan’s squad, led by Al Horford, Joakim Noah and Corey Brewer, began the 2006 season with 17 straight wins en route to the school’s first national championship that April with a 73-57 victory over UCLA. Those three starters could have been lottery picks in the NBA Draft that June but all decided to return to Gainesville for more season, along with starters Lee Humphrey and Taurean Green, and the empire’s construction was complete. During the 2007 season, Donovan became the win-ningest basketball coach in Florida history as the Gators bulldozed through their schedule on their way to the number one overall seed in the NCAA Tournament before defeat-ing Ohio State for back-to-back national titles. Horford went on to become the highest player ever drafted out of Florida when the Atlanta Hawks took him third overall in that year’s draft. The Minnesota Timberwolves then took Brewer seventh overall while Noah went ninth to the Chicago Bulls. The 2007 season marked Florida’s ninth straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament, which capped off an unprecedented run of success at the university. Prior to Donovan’s arrival, the program only had five NCAA Tournament appearances, had never made a national championship game and had never won conference tournament championship. In all, the Gators won three SEC regular season and SEC Tournament titles during that span in addition to three final four appear-ances and two national championships. And although Florida wouldn’t make the NCAA Tournament the follow-ing two seasons, Donovan brought the Gators back to the dance for five straight appearances from 2010-2014. He also had six more players selected in the NBA Draft from 2008-2013. Marreese Speights, 2008. Nick Calathes, 2009. Chandler Parsons, 2011. Vernon Macklin, 2011. Bradley Beal, 2012. Erik Murphy, 2013. You could have built an entire NBA roster with Donovan’s players alone during his time in Gainesville. Not only was Donovan the architect of Florida’s basketball program, he was the architect of several young men’s basketball careers, of several young men’s lives. College basketball lost one of its greatest coaches Thursday afternoon when Donovan left to become the new head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The game will surely miss him. Gainesville definitely will. BILLY D Continued From Page 1B JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterBilly Donovan shakes hands after a game this season.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2015 I’m blessed to work at Florida Gateway College for many reasons. One of the biggest perks is our schedule, because we are a higher education organiza tion. That means we mimic the public school calendar in a lot of ways. We cel ebrate and honor a lot of the holidays throughout the year, a four-day sum mer work schedule, and a Christmas Break that lasts two weeks. We also get a Spring Break — another full week off plus — which was especially nice when I quit coaching. It also lines up with the best fishing time of the year (and tur key hunting). So, this year I was determined to fish three of those ten days. I always set goals before each trip, and on this trip I had a very unique goal. I first talked to Captain Buzz Brannon via text with his cousin, Matt Cason, who had mentioned he was related to a Captain in Jacksonville. He asked if I was interested in a fish ing trip, and I had a one word reply “When”? I had no idea the connections that Buzz had to Lake City, Florida; after all, he was a Jacksonville charter captain who loved to surf. That’s not a common site around land locked Lake City. Buzz’s dad and step mom are George and Sue Brannon, and his mom and step dad are Todd and Debbie Koons. He grew up fishing the Suwannee River with his grandmother and grandfather, PD and Joppy Cason. Buzz moved from Lake City in 1980, at the age of 10, to Ponte Vedra Beach, where he took up surfing and fish ing the Intracoastal Water Way. Later he returned to Lake City and graduated from Lake City Community College. He currently lives in Neptune Beach with his wife, Heather, and son, Blaze. He’s been a fast riser on the fishing circuit. He start ed as a tournament angler for the past five years on the IFA, Florida Pro Redfish Series, and the HT Team series. He recently joined the Patagonia Clothing endorsed Guide program, as well as Rapala’s VIP Guide program. He attained his Captain’s license two and a half years ago, and has been guiding profes sionally ever since. Get ready for my charter fishing soapbox! I’ll say it until I’m blue in the face. The NUMBER ONE way to become a bet ter fisherman, regardless of your level, is to hire a guide. I learn something new every time. If you argument is cost, I’d chal lenge you to stack up your receipts combined with the days, weeks, and years on the water either struggling, searching, or maybe even catching, versus one trip that will guarantee you’re learning from someone who spends all of their time on the water. You’ll learn techniques, why fish are where they are, new areas to fish, and so much more. Sorry, time to get off my (Charter) soapbox! Ha! I’m not sure what Captain Buzz thought when I told him about my goal for our trip. I wanted us to catch six quality redfish, and to bring shaving cream with a razor for each of these fish. Why? Why not! I’ve had a beard for the greater part of the last three years. I’m also crazy superstitious. Like, certifi ably crazy. But, you know what? It works. Always remember it’s only weird if it doesn’t work. The beard started initial ly as a Bahamas Mancation fishing beard (that was dyed black), then it morphed into a hunting beard (that was dyed pine tree brown for camouflage purposes), back again to a tournament fishing beard (dyed cobia brown). Then it made a run as a Red Sox World Series winning beard (all natu ral in honor of my beard soul mate, Red Sox catcher and former Gator, David Ross), and lastly as a Super Bowl winning beard for the Patriots (I hadn’t fully com mitted to growing a true playoff beard in a while, so I accept full responsibility for their drought). So, what were the pur pose of shaving cream and a goal of catching six qual ity fish? There are 2 reasons to grow a beard. Number one is because you’re a man, so it’s your biological responsi bility. Number two is so you can shave it into goofy facial hair combinations. Everyone knows the standard goatee, moustache, and Fu Manchu; I’m talking the next level of facial hair. I’m talking about the 80’s NASCAR driver, Magnum PI, Joe Dirt, Catfish Hunter, and more. I almost felt bad for putting this pressure on a guy I had never met, but I showed up at the dock with my favorite fishing rod, a can of shaving cream, and a razor. Buzz stated he had never had any client’s show up with that combination – and I bet he never does again! We pushed off from the dock in search of some quality Jacksonville redfish and good times.

It seems like it was August just a few weeks ago.” For so many reasons, this year seems to have gone by faster than previous years. A quick look back will help us understand why this was such a busy year from just one aspect. In August, it was announced that there would be a new president at FGC in July, and so the process began. In the end, just a few weeks ago, the Board of Trustees (BOT) met and selected their first choice, finalized the contract with him, and welcomed Dr. Lawrence Barrett as the fourth president at FGC. He will be joining the college in late July. Stepping back and reviewing the whole process from the beginning to end, and remembering that I went through the same experience 18 years ago, I was overcome with joy, excitement, pride and sadness, all at once. I am so pleased the BOT has chosen a very capable, forward-thinking, active president who is very student-oriented and community-minded. I know that Barrett will fit right into FGC and move this great college forward. On the other hand, I am saddened to think that I will no longer be actively involved with the college, BOT, students, faculty, and staff I love so much.

"The tournaments have a tremendous amount of impact on the county," said Kelly Lowrey, sports marketing director for the Columbia County Tourist Development Council. "We want to continue the movement that was built here prior to me coming to the TDC." As of now, the Southside sports calendar displays 29 tournaments booked from the weekend of April 11-12 through Dec. 12-13. The weekend tournaments include a variety of sports and range in size depending on the type of tournament, Lowrey said. Based on a calculation that takes the number of rooms filled at local hotels during the tournaments for adults and children each night estimated that each tournament brings in an average of $30,000$40,000, he said. "If you ever eat dinner on a weekend when we have a tournament in town, you can see all the kids in town and the impact it's having at our restaurants and hotels," Lowrey said. "There have been tournaments held here last summer where I heard Publix completely sold out of water and Gatorade." In years past, the Jacksonville Storm Softball Association has played a tournament at the Southside Sports Complex, bringing in significant revenue for the county. However, Lowrey said an agreement could not be reached between the local hoteliers and a third-party booking agent to get the Jacksonville Storm in Lake City this year. "The revenue that was lost with the Jacksonville Storm, hopefully, we can recover from another event," he said. Lowrey said he has booked a USSSA recreation ball state tournament that will fill the space for the Jacksonville Storm tournament. The Southside Sports Complex houses 13 baseball fields, 8 girls softball fields, 4 adult softball fields and 5 full-size soccer fields. On occasion during large tournaments, Lowrey said every field will be in use during the weekend. "We will continue to try and bring new events that not only our county can participate in, but also bring in teams from out of state to Lake City," he said. "We have the fields and the resources we need, I have big expectations for the future of the complex." The cooperation between the local hotel vendors and restaurants in the area have been a tremendous help with bringing in weekend tournaments, he said. "I would also like to thank Clint Pittman and the Parks and Landscape Department for all the work they do prepping the fields and working weekends," he said. "They do a wonderful job, and having our staff at the fields during the tournaments makes a tremendous difference at showing hospitality in Lake City."Tourism season nears Photos by EMILY BUCHANAN/Lake City ReporterKelly Lowrey, sports marketing director for the Tourist Development Council, projects a busy season for sports tourism in Columbia County as summer approaches.

Sports teams should bring in about $1M By MICHAEL LIEDTKE and JONATHAN FAHEYAP Business WritersFOSTER CITY, Calif. — Tesla CEO Elon Musk is trying to steer his electric car company's battery technology into homes and businesses as part of an elaborate plan to reshape the power grid with millions of small power plants made of solar panels on roofs and batteries in garages. Musk, a billionaire, is expected to announce Tesla's expansion into the home battery market Thursday evening in southern California. He is renowned for pursuing far-out projects. For instance, colonizing Mars is one of Musk's goals at Space X, a rocket maker that he also runs.Tesla to expand its battery technology to homes, more TESLA continued on 2C

Although the battery will be made by Tesla, it's expected to be sold as part of a package with a solar power system by SolarCity, a solar installer founded by Musk's cousins, Lyndon and Peter Rive. Musk is SolarCity's chairman and largest shareholder. As with Tesla's electric cars, which start around $70,000, the battery will probably be too expensive for most consumers. The system is expected to cost several thousand dollars, discouraging widespread adoption, especially for a product that may only have limited use. For now, the battery primarily serves as an expensive backup sys tem during blackouts for customers like David Cunningham, an aero space engineer from Foster City, California. He installed a Tesla battery late last year to pair with his solar panels as part of a pilot program run by the California Public Utilities Commission to test home battery performance. Although Cunningham's home has not endured a blackout in the six months that he has had the battery, it's capable of running crit ical home appliances like lights and refrigeration and can be recharged by solar panels during the day. "As long as a person has solar panels, it's just a nat ural fit for the two to go together," Cunningham, 77, said. "I consider it to be a whole power system right here in my home." Cunningham took advan tage of state incentives that sharply reduced the bat tery's $18,300 sticker price under the pilot program. He still paid $7,500. "The value proposition now is around reliability and backup power more than it is around savings, but over time that may change," said Shayle Kahn, an analyst at GTM Research. The batteries are likely to become more useful if, as expected, more utilities and regulators allow power prices to change through out the day based on mar ket conditions. That way, the software that controls the solar and battery sys tem will allow customers to use their home-generated power — and not expen sive grid power — when grid prices spike. Many commercial cus tomers already buy power this way, and Tesla is expected to announce bat tery systems designed for them, along with bigger battery packs that utilities can use to manage their grids. Analysts say these utility and commercial markets will probably be more promising for Tesla during the next few years than residential custom ers. The long-term goal is to create regional networks of home batteries that could be controlled as if they were a power plant. That would give utilities another way to ensure that they can provide power at times of peak demand. "You have to allow the owner to unbundle the value in the battery," said Ken Munson, CEO of Sunverge, a power stor age company teaming with the solar panel maker SunPower to develop a bat tery service that utilities can use and potentially profit from. Tesla is building a giant factory in Nevada that will begin churning out batter ies in 2017, so Musk needs to begin drumming up cus tomers now. The spotlight may help Musk push policy makers and utilities to con sider reshaping regulations so solar and battery stor age could be more easily incorporated into the larg er electric system, Kahn said. Tesla's ambitions already have intrigued homeowners like Mike Thielen, who installed one of the prototype batter ies with SolarCity panels on his Redondo Beach, California, home last year. Although he hasn't need ed the backup power yet, he has embraced the con cept. "I think it's brilliant," he said. "I would consid er upgrading to a more powerful home battery if they could figure out a way to get me totally off the grid."

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2015 3D DEAR ABBY: I’m comfortable with my faith and pray before a meal at home and at friends’ houses. We have become friendly with individuals from our church, and on many occasions have gone out to eat together at restaurants. When the meal is brought out, it has become a custom to pray. I feel uncomfortable praying aloud in public, and have seen others at our table already eating when someone says, “Let’s pray.” My wife tells me to just go with it. But sometimes when the praying goes on for a lengthy time, I start to get sweaty and on the verge of a panic attack. I wish they would take into consideration that others may feel praying is a private matter. I don’t believe that because one person doesn’t want to do something, others shouldn’t do it. So what say you? When food is brought to the table, should I dash to the restroom, or would that be rude? — PREFERS PRAYING PRIVATELY DEAR P.P.P.: No rule of etiquette decrees that you must pray out loud if someone else chooses to. Obviously, others in the group feel as you do, or they wouldn’t start eating. Because the situation makes you uncomfortable to the point of a panic attack, I think your solution to excuse yourself from the table for a few minutes is a good one — provided you say over your shoul der that you could be gone “awhile” and no one should wait for you. DEAR ABBY: It will be three years since my mother passed. Her house was sold and the money split among me and my two sisters. I opened a separate bank account for my inheri tance money. My partner of 16 years thinks I was wrong to do that and still throws it in my face. I spent the money on my children, grandchildren, taxes, bills, big flat-screen and stuff for him. (I also bought myself a pair of jeans.) I felt the money was my gift from my mom. I told my partner that when his parents pass, what ever they leave him will be his. It doesn’t matter how close I am to them. Your opinion, please, and no, he wasn’t close to my mom. — A GIFT FROM MY MOTHER DEAR GIFT: In my opinion, your partner appears to be greedy and have an outsized sense of entitlement. If your mother had wanted your partner to get his hands on any of her estate, she would have put her wish es in writing. DEAR ABBY: I recently attended the funeral of my ex-hus band’s uncle. I wore a conservative suit in dark navy blue with a white blouse. Several family members criticized me for not wearing black. I assumed that because I’m no longer a family member, that I wasn’t required to dress as one. Should I have worn black? — DIVORCEE IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR DIVORCEE: No. You showed respect for the deceased by attending. Sometimes funerals (and weddings) bring out the worst rath er than the best in peo ple. I’m surprised your ex-husband’s family took time out from their grief to notice what you were wearing. It appears no good deed goes unpun ished. ARIES (March 21-April 19): The changes you desire can be made if you put your heart and soul into making things happen. Don’t sit back when taking action is what’s required. Tie up loose ends and put your ideas and plans into motion. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep life simple, avoid temptation and stick to a budget. Anger will get you nowhere, but putting more effort into seeking advance ment will. Practice what you preach and your peers will follow your lead. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take advantage of an unexpected proposal. The help you receive and the offers you accept will change your life and the way you live. Show your ability to be diverse and you will gain respect and the rewards you deserve. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take an unfamiliar route and learn from the experi ences you encounter. Speak up and share your ideas with someone who engages in sim ilar pastimes as you. A part nership will lead to a second chance. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get ready to implement the changes you want to make at home or with regard to your future employment. Emotions will be tense when dealing with domestic matters, so try to avoid a nasty, unnecessary argument. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Physical action will lead to victory. Use your experience and knowledge to make things happen. A day trip will lead to information that can help you make a better choice about your personal life and profes sional future. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Focus on self-improvement and put your best foot forward. A move or trip to visit someone special will lead to romance and a change in the way you live. Don’t get overly emotional about money matters. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep an open mind, but don’t put your money behind someone else’s plan. Work on your own ideas and invest in something that will benefit you directly. A partnership with someone creative can work if you have a shared goal. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put some muscle into the changes you want to make to your home. Move things around or set up a space you can use for a proj ect you want to pursue. Share your feelings with someone you love and you’ll reach your goal faster. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emotional situations can be taken care of if you are willing to meet someone halfway. Making alterations to your home or making a move that will lead to better professional oppor tunities should be consid ered. Embrace the unknown. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Share your thoughts and make personal changes that will boost your confidence or improve your surroundings. Children, pregnancy and pos itive changes to your life and home environment are appar ent. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be careful how you han dle loved ones. Problems will develop at home if you are too demanding or take on respon sibilities that lead to neglecting your domestic obligations. ++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word Prayer can turn to panic during restaurant outings Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

and overall run down looking. We arrived in time to catch the first mermaid show of the day. I don’t really know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t what I got. I wasn’t impressed at all. I can’t explain why. They had to close the curtains 15 minutes into the show for technical difficulties. This reinforced my initial impression and when the show resumed it just fell flat. A funny aside, there was a turtle hovering around one of the mermaid’s heads throughout the beginning of the show. She was distracted, but the turtle was not letting up or getting out of her way. It was comical watching it dive for her head every time she tried pushing it away. After the show we wound our way through the remainder of the park. Buccaneer Bay is the swimming hole, beach and water slide area. All of the slides were closed and in disrepair. We saw peacocks roaming the grounds and headed to the river boat launch. The boat only seats 30 people and departs every half hour. We missed the next one and walked along a very short trail to the wildlife exhibit, which we found empty. There was an amphitheater promoting a wildlife show and we saw people sitting in the stands, but no other activity. We decided to leave. The only saving grace was the fun photo ops we created for ourselves throughout the park: sitting in the mermaid chair and posing behind a prop featuring our own mermaid tail. I was glad to have visited to see if I could remember anything from my childhood. I was saddened by what I found. I’m sure in its day Weeki Wachee was all the rage. Having opened in 1947 for the first show, it preempted Walt Disney World for a Florida destination. Even Elvis visited to see the mermaids. The spring is still just as clear and the sparkling blue colored water soothing to look at. 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2015 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.

Poor soil, unfavorable climate and insufficient space have been good reasons for making the switch from conventional, in-ground gardening to more non-traditional methods. Some gardeners in North Florida are enjoying the hobby of growing tropical and subtropical fruits in mobile containers, as well. The key is being able to move the container-grown fruit trees indoors during periods of damaging temperatures. Obviously, this wouldn’t be a practical way to grow naturally larger-growing fruit trees because the size and weight of the containers would be too great. Containers may be plastic, clay, ceramic, wood or any others found in garden stores, and they should have bottom drainage holes. A layer of screen mesh over the drain holes will keep soil from washing out. Bagged potting soils can be used to grow fruit trees. A custom made mixture of ingredients such as one part sand, one part perlite and one part peat will also work well. The mixture should hold moisture but allow drainage of excess water. Placing a couple inches of gravel over the screen on the bottom before adding the potting mix will also aid in good drainage.How it’s donePartly fill the container with soil and set the plant so the top of the root ball will still be at the soil line. If the roots are crowded, gently tease to loosen them so they will grow outward. The new soil surface should be several inches below the rim to allow space for watering. Thoroughly water and gently firm the soil to fill air pockets, but be careful not to compact the soil. Pay attention to the cultural requirements to keep plants healthy. Most fruit crops will grow and produce best if placed in full sun. Water should be applied only as needed. Most container-grown plants that are in poor condition are suffering from faulty watering practices, usually over-watering. The initial fertilizer application should not be made until new growth appears after transplanting. Use a water-soluble fertilizer that is balanced and contains micronutrients. Always follow the directions on the label. Pruning is rarely needed unless plants get leggy or top heavy. Sometimes the top will exceed the root capacity, resulting in leaf shed and twig dieback. In this case, prune the plants back heavily to rejuvenate them. Be careful to adjust the amount of water and fertilize applied after pruning, though, because much less will be used by the plant. The following are some fruits that will produce in containers, given time and good care. Great yields from container plants, however, shouldn’t be expected. Many fruit crops require pollinizers and pollinating insects.

Growing tropical fruit right here GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@u.edu D. Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.is more than just a singular thing — it encompasses everything outdoors and I think that’s helped grow our brand.” He said Outdoors 360 is, at the moment, primarily a social media platform to promote viral outdoor content, including stories, videos, and photographs, but moving forward it will become more in-depth. “It’s so open-ended in what it could be,” he said. “The emphasis going forward will be family-friendly. I want it to be an outdoor, family-friendly website that gets beyond a regular story. I want to get deeper than that. I want to get to the stories behind the fisherman, charter captains and regular guys. I want to get to the personalities of what really makes outdoor enthusiasts tick... To me that’s more exciting that just telling how to catch a fish.”Finding time to workStarting a website from the ground up is difficult enough, but doing so with a full-time job can be physically and mentally demanding. By day, Chapman serves as Florida Gateway College’s marketing, graphics, and web coordinator. By night — and in every other free moment that he can find — he’s working tirelessly to develop Outdoors360 into the largest online outdoors website on the Internet. In addition to the 40 hours a week worked at Florida Gateway College, he puts in another 40-80 each week on Outdoors360. He gets it honestly, though — Chapman said he draws the inspiration from his father who, at 62 years old, still works more than 80 hours per week. “I respect him because he did everything for our family and I would like to think that I’m doing the same thing for my family,” he said. So Chapman makes the most of his free time. He wakes up and develops content for Outdoors360 before work. He spends his lunch breaks writing content and posting on its social media pages. And, as a confessed insomniac, Chapman spends many nighttime hours refining the concept and brand that will, one day, hopefully provide another level of financial security for him and his family. “Everything I do is for my family,” he said, speaking of his wife of 10 years, Andrea, and two daughters, Lilla, 7 and Molly, 3. Despite all of the attention on Outdoors360, Chapman’s focus is still on FGC. And with good reason — he gives a lot of credit to the college in getting him to where he is today. He attended — and graduated — from the college after a successful baseball career. He met his wife there nearly 16 years ago. He’s worked there for nearly five years. And he hopes, one day, to see his daughters attend the school as well. “I want to be out here when my daughters are able to do dual enrollment,” he said. “The college is a part of my life — that’s where I met my wife and that’s where I want my kids to attend school.”Implementing the projectDuring FGC’s 2014 Christmas break, Chapman was able to find a number of investors who wanted to take a shot on Outdoors360, giving him the chance to take the website to the next level. “To this point it’s been basically a glorified blog with a social media presence,” he said. “Our goal is to build the brand. Our goal is to take this beyond a hobby.” Advancements in technology have allowed him to go much further with Outdoors360 than he’d ever dreamed. Just two years ago, developing the new website would have cost a small fortune — development and implementation of a new website and mobile application could have cost more than $500,000. But technology evolves quickly and, in today’s society, two years is like a lifetime of changes. Mobile technology has continued to advance at a rapid pace, streamlining the development needed into making Outdoors360 a reality. “Life’s all about timing,” he said. “Mobile-friendly websites are becoming the norm, we no longer need a mobile app. Because of that, our cost has gone down substantially and our plan was able to become more focused.” Until the new website is launched, Outdoors360’s online presence is booming — its Facebook page boasts more than 28,000 fans and another 1,000-plus are followers on Instagram and Twitter. And with a new website launching this summer, Outdoors360 shows no signs of slowing down.

Apple Watch users cite tattoo problemsBy BARBARA ORTUTAYAP Technology WriterNEW YORK — It’s an annoying problem for the unlucky few: the Apple Watch’s heart rate monitor might not work if you have a tattoo on your wrist. Inked and irked Apple fans have dubbed the issue “TattooGate,” complaining they must choose between their body art and their stylish gadget. Apple, for its part, acknowledged the issue on its support website. “Permanent or temporary changes to your skin, such as some tattoos, can also impact heart rate sensor performance,” the site reads. “The ink, pattern, and saturation of some tattoos can block light from the sensor, making it difficult to get reliable readings.” While the issue might sound like one of those percenter problems” some Twitter users wondered how it happened that Apple didn’t have a single designer or tester with a wrist tattoo who would have noticed the problem. Apple suggests that users who can’t get a consistent heart rate reading connect their Apple Watch wirelessly to external heart rate monitors. If you have a wrist tattoo and aren’t planning on removing it, it might make sense to test out the heart rate monitor feature before you commit to a watch.
