By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.comHundreds of local residents came to Saturday’s 12th annual Columbia County Master Gardener Plant Sale and Festival hoping to walk away with a couple of plants and maybe even a green thumb. “I’m very pleased with the quality of plants and the reception we’ve received from the community today,” said Patricia Watkins, co-chairman of Saturday’s event held at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. “This has exceeded my expectations.” As thousands of plants lined the tables around the banquet hall where the event was staged, Watkins explained how every one was grown by a Florida Master Gardener who has received many hours of training and given back to the local community through community service. Not only were plants for sale, but the festival also offered seminars for those wanting to learn valuable gardening skills, Watkins said. Although this wasn’t the first year the plant sale took place, the event seemed to double in size due to additional vendors participating in the festival, according to cochairman Sharon Higgins. “This year we brought in all different kinds of vendors,” she said. “Gardenrelated, jewelry-making, crafting and even cooking-related vendors.” The plant sale raised money that will go directly back to the community, Higgins said.

In a 3-2 vote Thursday, the county commission voted to continue talks with Integrity Development Partners and the City of Lake City in order to define the county’s role in the proposed project. Commissioners Rusty DePratter and Everett Phillips said they want see the Blanche restored, but not on the backs of county taxpayers. Both voted against the proposal. Phillips’ vote was misreported in Friday’s newspaper. He said he voted against the proposal because it doesn’t appear profitable for the city or county. “I just couldn’t see doing the money with an individual contractor that’s going to reap the benefits down the road when he may decide to sell out and be gone,” he said. Phillips said he would consider a city and county partnership for renovating the Blanche on their own with no developer involved. “If the city and the county want to do it together, do it together and then we can say it belongs to the city and the county. It wouldn’t belong to an individual [company],” he said. “If we could get the [tax] credits from the state like these individual people are going to get, I would like to see that if it could happen. I’m not against the Blanche, but I cannot Lake City ReporterSUNDAY, MAY 10, 2015 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.50 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM ‘Buddies’ at Marion St. Pub 1D Garden of RestSUNDAY EDITION1BSEE SPORTS,New owner vows to maintain historic Lake City cemetery.2A FGC salutes graduates, Page 2A. +PLUS >> SPORTSShuck confident he’ll be Tigers’ quarterback , 1B.

By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County School District and a defunct charter school are in dispute over $112,000 in funding after the release of the school’s closing audit Thursday. The school board has sent Shining Star Academy of the Arts, which the state mandated to be shut down in November 2014, two billing notices for the deficit funds but has received no response, according to district Director of Finance Bonnie Penner. “The school contends that they do not owe us, but we disagree,” Penner said. “And it’s obvious that me sending them a notice isn’t resolving anything.” Former Shining Star principal Tony Buzzella said no money is owed. He claims although school Defunct charter school disputes $112,000 bill Shining Star says it was promised more funding; local school district disagrees.

board officials assured him Shining Star would continue to be fully fund ed until it closed, that is not what happened. Buzzella said both Penner and Superintendent Terry Huddleston met with him after the state’s order for termination and ver bally agreed in August 2014 to fund the school until its official closure in November 2014. However, he said the school received its last payment in September 2014. “We had a meeting, and we were assured that if we agreed on a date they would fund us until the end and then cut us off,” Buzzella said. “But the bottom line is that they reneged on their word and cut off our funding before the school was closed.” He said that although the school board had asked that Shining Star students start transition ing back into regular public schools during this time, he was assured that a change in numbers would not affect funding amounts. Penner said there was never an agreement of that nature, and there is no record of such a meet ing having occurred. “That was never the case,” she said. “There just weren’t as many students, so we couldn’t give them as much fund ing.” Penner explained that the school district does a count of students twice a year, in February and October. She said that when Shining Star students were counted during October 2014, after stu dents had started transi tioning back into regular schools, funding had to go down. “The contract says that when the number of students is submit ted, we will adjust their payment based on those counts that are submit ted to the Department of Education,” Penner said. She said the district actually wanted to cut funding to the school even earlier but couldn’t during the due process time period in which the state was determining if and when it would be shut down. Buzzella said he feels this was a personal attack on him by Huddleston that put children in a dis ruptive situation. “I am disappointed in the school board and in the superintendent,” he said. “I know they had to do what they felt they had to do, but it could have been done a little nicer much more professional ly.” According to the audit, Shining Star closed with a total debt of nearly $200,000, including its deficits to the district, accrued payroll and other debts. Buzzella said he thought the ordeal was over and was willing to take the loss but does not plan to pay for what he sees as the district’s mis take. He alleges that the total loss of funding to Shining Star was about $260,000, an amount he feels the school board should pay back. “I am not going to pay for them not honor ing their assurance to us,” Buzzella said. “They didn’t honor their word, and that is what made us have a deficit.” Penner said the school board does not plan to give up on its pursuit of the deficit funds. “We are going to keep pursuing the dispute,” Penner said. “All we can do is wait and see what they do from here.” Huddleston could not be reached for com ment. By EMILY BUCHANANebuchanan@lakecityreporter.comThe Garden of Rest, a cemetery located off Lake Jeffery Road, is the final rest ing ground for many influen tial figures in Lake City. However, uncertain ty over ownership of the cemetery over the last couple of decades has left the grounds in bad shape, according to longtime Lake City resident Wanda O’Neal-Sheppard, who became the new owner of the cemetery last week. “My goal when I first starting coming here was to be able to stand at the back of the cemetery and see through to the road,” she said. Numerous trees needed to be cut down, the lawn needed to be mowed, and an area in the back corner of the cemetery had flooded and needed a lot of atten tion, O’Neal-Sheppard said. “I’ve been coming here since I was 9 years old,” she said. “You’ve got a whole bunch of family members out here that have been coming here for many, many years.” As O’Neal-Sheppard made her way through the cemetery of worn-down tombstones and handmade wooden crosses Friday afternoon, she started tick ing off names of residents recognized for their ser vice to the community. “All these people here were kind people,” she said as she brushed back the leaves on a nearby burial plot. She listed Annie Mattox, whose name was lent to Annie Mattox Park; Sally Jerry, who was recognized in a dedication of Memorial Stadium; and other names of teachers, city staff mem bers and well-known figures 2A SUNDAY, MAY 10, 2015 DAILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Eleanor Ransburg, 754-0424 HOW TO REAC H USMain number ....... .

Mary Rhodes Robertson has been missing since Wednesday afternoon. As of 2 p.m. Saturday, the decision was made to discontinue mass searches, according to Murray Smith, a sheriff’s office spokesman. The investigation will continue, but in a different form. “Although we had hoped to reunite Mary with her family by this time, we are not giving up,” Sheriff Mark Hunter said in a prepared statement. “Our detectives and deputies will be working to this end as we cease operations in the field. I want to personally thank all the first responders and their agencies along with the civilian volunteers who worked so hard in this operation.” Robertson’s husband, Sam Robertson, couldn’t find her in their home to see what she wanted for lunch Wednesday, according to a CCSO news release. After enlisting neighborhood help, Sam called CCSO to report his wife’s disappearance around 3 p.m. Since then, multiple law enforcement agencies, ranging from the Florida Highway Patrol to the Florida Wildlife Commission, have checked neighboring areas/homes, previous known addresses that the Robertsons have resided at, and the wooded areas that covered the initial 1-mile perimeter that was later expanded to 3 miles. Multiple canine units from the both the CCSO and Department of Corrections have been deployed, the report says, as well as search-and-rescue dogs from Jacksonville Fire Rescue that specialize in detecting the scent of trapped victims. The rural area has also been searched by FWC officers riding ATVs and the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office’s helicopter, Smith said. “It’s been an exhaustive search and an exhaustive investigation,” Smith said. “We’re fairly confident that she’s not in the area we’ve searched. We’ve checked hundreds of homes.” Smith said it is possible that someone unaware of Robertson’s condition might have picked her up. Robertson is 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighs 96 pounds and has blue eyes with dirt blonde hair and a touch of gray. She was last seen in the area of 158 SW Leonard Terrace and Southwest Parker Lane. She was wearing a blue shirt, denim pants and dark blue flat shoes. Anyone with knowledge of the case should call CCSO at its dedicated tip line at 9842871 or the dispatch line at 719-2005, or Crime Stoppers of Columbia County at 754-7099.Officials scale back the search for missing Lake City woman SW Leonard Terrace resident has dementia.By NICK ROLLISONSpecial to the ReporterLake City Medical Center is among nine North Florida hospitals that have settled with the United States government amidst allegations of routinely ordering basic life support ambulances when that type of transport was not medically necessary, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida. In reaching the settlement, the release says, the parties resolved allegations that from Jan. 1, 2009, to April 2014, the hospitals provided certificates of medical necessity that attested to the need for basic life-support, non-emergency ambulance transports even when these transports were not medically necessary. Lake City Medical Center, along with Memorial Hospital and Specialty Hospital, collectively settled for $2.37 million, the press release says. Other hospitals involved in the settlement include Baptist Health, which owns and operates four hospitals in Jacksonville and settled for $2.89 million; UF Health Jacksonville, which settled for $1 million; and Century Ambulance Service, which settled for $1.25 million. “Our goal is to do what is best for our patients — including post-discharge transport, whether by ambulance or not,” Michelle Moore, director of marketing and public relations for Lake City Medical Center, said in a prepared statement. “There are complex Medicare rules that govern the appropriateness of when ambulance companies may bill for such transport if the patient is deemed well enough to travel in a cab or van. This settlement addresses that issue for certain former patients, and we are pleased the matter is resolved.” The news release also says the government has settled allegations with Century Ambulance for its role in submitting millions of dollars in false claims to federal healthcare programs. The news release says Century knowingly up-coded claims from Basic to Advanced life support and unnecessarily transported patients in “emergent” fashion. “The United States Attorney’s Office is committed to taking the steps necessary to protect Medicare, TRICARE and other federal health care programs from fraud,” U.S. Attorney A. Lee Bentley said in the news release. “Whether the fraud is intentional or the product of deliberate ignorance, we will pursue these cases and recover taxpayer money.” According to the release, the case was initiated by the filing of a whistleblower lawsuit by Shawn Pelletier, a former employee of Century Ambulance. Pelletier will collect more than $1.2. million in proceeds from the settlements. Federal officials intend to pursue claims against Liberty Ambulance, which declined to settle, and file a civil complaint in the near future, alleging that the ambulance company knowingly submitted medically unnecessary claims for reimbursement in violation of the federal health-care program requirements.Hospital, feds settle ambulance fee dispute LCMC among nine facilities that reach pact with US Attorney.throughout the community. “The cemetery shouldn’t be in disarray,” she said. “It shouldn’t be an eyesore to look at when driving past, so that’s why I’m going to take care of it.” O’Neal-Sheppard had been attending city council meetings for nearly four years trying to figure out who owned the cemetery, she said. She searched court documents and found a deed from when the cemetery came into existence, back on Sept. 21, 1923. The original owner of the cemetery was a woman named Alyce J. Caesar, who was the funeral director of Caesar’s Funeral Home and passed away in 2009. O’NealSheppard said she also found documents that said the cemetery was placed in the care of Caesar’s nephew, Hilton Jones. O’Neal-Sheppard called the Division of Funeral, Cemetery and Consumer Services, part of the Florida Department of Financial Services in Tallahassee. Officials told her that the cemetery was listed under “exempt,” as the owner was not able to maintain it, she said. That opened the door to deed the property to O’Neal-Sheppard. “It’s really good to hear that she officially owns the cemetery,” said City Councilman Zack Paulk. Paulk said O’NealSheppard asked the city council why the city had stopped taking care of it, so the city sent out a crew to clean it at one point. “She came back to us after the problem was resolved and was very thankful,” Paulk said. O’Neal-Sheppard and her husband, Jesse Sheppard, dedicate more than 20 hours a week to mowing the grounds, trimming and making it something special to those who claim it as a final resting place. “I am honored and blessed that people felt I could be responsible for taking care of such a special place,” she said. “The people out here can’t help themselves anymore, and I will continue to come out here and help until I am physically unable to do so.” CEMETERY Continued From 2A COURTESY CCSOLaw enforcement officials and canine units search Saturday for Mary Rhodes Robertson, who has been missing since Wednesday.

To the Editor:The Lake City Reporter has recently published two articles pertaining to the “Memorandum of Understanding” between the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) and the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) regarding water juris dictional issues. One article provid ed notice of the agreement. The sec ond article was in reference to my belief that the agreement would be better codified in Florida Statutes. I would like to reiterate my position. As I have previously stated, I have no issue with the language of the MOU; therefore, the only issue is the form in which the language is adopted. My belief is that the lan guage is best codified in statutes for the following reasons: 1.) It has been four years since the 152 million gallon per day per mit was issued to the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) by the SJRWMD. SRWMD was virtually helpless (or forbidden) to stop the permit even with the knowl edge that groundwater impacts would impact the jurisdiction of the SRWMD. The excuse was that no law existed which required the two districts to collaborate on such permits. The “Dean-Porter” bill (SB 244) was adopted in response. Columbia County supported this bill and has supported ongoing efforts to enhance it since its adop tion. No statutory enhancements to this law have occured since its adoption. This is true even though the science concerning the issue is vastly superior to the science which existed at the time SB 244 was adopted. 2.) Currently, the SRWMD has not adopted a Basin management Plan (BMP) or Water Supply Plan. Both of these are critical to the issue of water quantity. 3.) Columbia County and SRWMD previously had a MOU pertaining to stormwater. The MOU ended badly with no form of resolu tion available. 4.) In the political world of water and water issues, the SRWMD is the weakest player. Through no fault of their own, they do not have the polit ical strength of others in the water debate. Those “others” include, but are not limited to, SJRWMD, FDEP, JEA, GRU and Associated Industries. The questions to me is simple: given the above stated issues, what is Columbia County’s best option? The answer is clear. Codify the MOU as soon as possible. This will give the citizens the best option to have a say in the process. An MOU can be changed much easier than a law. By the way, since the approval of the MOU, the Executive Director, Chief of Staff, Strategic Planning and Services Director, Assistant Director of Regulatory, Engineering and Environmental Design and the Director of Strategic Deliverables of the SJRWMD have either resined, retired or have been terminated. I think it is rather obvious that Columbia County and the other counties within the SRWMD are los ing on the water issue. Are you con cerned? Don’t worry, you have an MOU to protect you. If you believe this, there is some “oceanfront” property in Arizona you can get for a real deal!

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman LETTERS TO THE EDITORSign online voter registration billO ne of the few things the dys functional Legislature man aged to get accomplished this session was the passage of a bill that would provide a simpler and more secure way for people to register to vote by creating an online registration process. The move is supported by the state’s supervisors of election and follows the example set by the 20 states that have successfully imple mented online voter registration. The measure drew bipartisan sup port in the state’s Senate and House, which appropriated $1.8 million to implement the online system. Now it’s up to Gov. Rick Scott to sign the bill into law. Believe it or not, that might not happen. There’s good reason to suspect Scott was behind Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner’s absurd appearance before a Senate com mittee several weeks ago to urge lawmakers to reject the online voter registration legislation. Detzner, the state’s top elections official, doesn’t think his office has enough time to make the changes despite being offered a two-year glide path to get the system up and running. Other states have complet ed the task in a year. Lawmakers wisely saw through his ridiculous concerns and passed the measure, making sure to appropriate the $1.8 million to pre clude Scott from claiming there’s no money for the changes. Scott should do what’s best for Florida by signing the bill into law. Online registration would not replace the traditional registration processes used at supervisors of elections offices and at driver’s license bureaus. It would simply add a logical and convenient avenue for people to register, giving access 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Think of the convenience it brings not only for the average voter, but for military members serving overseas. Only citizens with a Florida driv er’s license, which can’t be obtained without a birth certificate or other documentation, would be allowed to register online. Local elections offic es would review each application. The process saves money, is less likely to result in data entry errors, and has the potential to reduce fraud. Proof of the measure’s bipartisan support can be found in the votes for its passage. The Senate voted 37-3 for the bill; the House voted 109-9 for passage. Let’s hope Scott takes into account the overwhelming support by lawmakers and elections supervi sors and signs the bill into law. Blanche already making history The fate of the historic Blanche Hotel wasn’t decided at Thursday’s county commission meeting, but history of a different kind was made that evening. For the first time in recent memory — perhaps ever — a current city manager appeared in person to address commis sioners on a matter of real importance. Wendell Johnson made an impassioned plea for the Blanche and commissioners listened. They aren’t won over just yet, but did hear enough to make them stop and think — and agree to at least keep the conversation going. It was a big step, and not just for the Blanche. City-county relations haven’t been good in ages, and there’s still a fair chance, as some had hoped, that their working together to save the Blanche might also result in greater willingness to join forces on other projects for the good of all. For now our focus remains the Blanche, though, and what some saw as sparks on Thursday, we saw as a clear glimmer of hope that downtown Lake City may yet be saved. Not only are both sides still talking, it’s clear to us they truly want to do the right thing in the end, however they see it. We trust they will. Q Tampa Tribune Q Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1775, Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys, along with Col. Benedict Arnold, captured the British-held fortress at Ticonderoga, N.Y. In 1863, during the Civil War, Confederate Lt. Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson died of pneumonia, result ing from being hit by friendly fire eight days earlier during the Battle of Chancellorsville in Virginia. In 1869, a golden spike was driven in Promontory, Utah, marking the completion of the first transcontinen tal railroad in the United States. In 1924, J. Edgar Hoover was named acting direc tor of the Bureau of Investigation (later known as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or FBI). Williams: Make water memo a law To the Editor:It is commendable that the city and county are looking at restor ing the Blanche Hotel. However, it should not be done at taxpayers’ expense. You could never find an independent, private financial insti tution that would agree to finance a building AND agree to reimburse the builder if spaces are not rented at a certain percentage. What would be the incentive for the builder to find renters to fill the building at a certain rate? Look at all the vacant offices in the city at various shopping areas. Every shopping area that I drove by today on US 90, Main Street and even US 47, had empty office spaces. Even in our largest mall, where Belk and Penney are, there is always a space or two unoc cupied. What do we offer other small business in our communities as incentives to occupy these spac es? I hope we vote every council per son and county commissioner out that would agree to such a deal. Gladys Barton Lake City Blanche proposal is bad business

(386) 755-0600 see selling it to [an] individual company that wants to make sure he gets his payment made for seven years.” Rusty DePratter, commission chairman, said he didn’t vote against the Blanche but against the specific proposal. He said he has concerns about the project’s numbers repeatedly changing, as well as associated project costs. He said there are no reliable figures to use. He said although the project calls for a $17 million renovation, IDP and the city estimate the project will be taxed at $9 million, rather than the $5 million estimated by the county property appraiser’s office. “I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to pay a whole lot more property tax than they have to,” he said. The proposed $1 million loan to IDP by the county would be paid back by increased property tax revenues over a 15-year period. DePratter said there is plenty of similar office space available in the area, and he objects to other elements of the proposal as well. “I’m not interested at all in paying any guaranteed leases, and I won’t be,” he said. “I don’t feel like it’s the average taxpayer’s burden to front this project ... I don’t believe we should be putting the burden on the shoulders of the taxpayers to rebuild the Blanche, and that’s what their proposal is pretty much providing for.” Three county commissioners — Bucky Nash, Scarlet Frisina and Ron Williams — voted in favor of the letter of intent to keep the dialogue open with hopes of renovation. Commissioner Scarlet Frisina, whose vote was also misreported in Friday’s paper, said her “yes” vote Thursday didn’t mean she supported the project in full. “I voted the way I did to keep the dialogue going,” she said. “There may be a counteroffer, but this wasn’t the final go-round. It’s going to come back to us.” Frisina said the most she is willing to do for the project is offer the $1 million interest-free loan. Ron Williams said he is in favor of the county assisting the city in redevelopment of the Blanche. “I know it’s a vital part of Lake City and Columbia County, it’s a historic building,” he said. “...There were some stipulations in the letter of intent I didn’t wholeheartedly agree with. I tried to keep the conversation going.” Williams thinks a $1 million interest-free loan is a good effort by the county commission, but other stipulations need to be clarified and further refined, he said. He said the county will not agree to pay for any costs that exceed the project budget and he also rejects the guaranteed-rent proposal. Under the current plan, the city and/or county would be respon sible for 60 percent of unleased office space in the new Blanche for a period of seven years. “We’re here to support the city, but it’s a city project along with the developer, and that’s why I voted to continue the conversation,” Williams said. He said he isn’t interested in a project where the city and county take on renovation of the Blanche by themselves. Commissioner Bucky Nash said he voted to continue the dialogue to see what the parties are willing to do. “It’s a $17 million project, and as a county commissioner, you want to be supportive in the revamping of the Blanche, but you’ve also got to be smart with the taxpayers’ money, and that’s why I asked for more information,” Nash said. Nash said the big concern in the proposal is what each of the entities is willing to do with the guaranteed rent. Nash said he was open to other alternatives to renovate the Blanche and would even consider an exclusive city/county partnership, but the idea now is to look at all alternatives. “That’s kind of what we’re doing,” he said. “We have people at the table and what are the alternatives if we don’t do the IDP deal? Are there other alternatives to look at? The city/county partnership is an alternative. Are there other ones out there?” BLANCHEContinued From 1A‘The city/county partnership is an alternative. Are there other ones out there?’— Bucky Nash, Columbia County commissioner is not a fundraiser for Rubio, who will receive none of the money. Hines said this will be the first time to his knowledge that a presidential candidate has visited Columbia County. Former Vice President Dick Cheney was here in the fall of 2004, when he landed at the local airport and held an event at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. Hines anticipates 1,200 to 1,500 people will attend. Blaise Ingoglia, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, will be in attendance, and U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, will make a video presentation, Hines said, as Congress is still in session. He said excitement is building around the Rubio campaign. “Rubio is in the best position to energize the base so they don’t just stay home and still pull from the center.” Kimi Roberts, a member of the North Florida Rural Initiative planning committee, said she hopes the event will provide an impetus for future congressional candidates who might want to visit the area. “Folks will be coming from Mayo, Jasper, Live Oak, Branford and from all over,” she said. “We’re very excited about this.” Hines said the Columbia County REC will use some of the proceeds to help fund a $500 scholarship for a local student to receive EMT training at FGC. For more information, call 243-1397. RUBIOContinued From 1Awith Disabilities Center, help with the garden at the Lifestyle Enrichment Center of Lake City and will be teaching gardening skills to students in front of the Columbia County School Board administration building. In years past, Higgins said the festival has raised about $2,000. “With all the vendors included in the festival this year, we’re hoping to maybe double that amount,” she said. While some vendors at the festival sold lawn mowers, paintings, jewelry and wind chimes, one local vendor sold earthworm castings, otherwise known as worm manure. “The best way I can describe it to someone is: what yogurt does for people, worm castings do for your plants,” said Frosty Baad, a vendor who moved to Columbia County in August. The by-product of the worm was an odorless, grainy-material that resulted in a non-toxic, organic fertilizer for plants, Baad said. “We wanted to go natural,” she said. Baad said she sold bags of worm castings by the pound. On Friday, the day before the event, Baad said she sold 200 pounds to one of her regular customers. She also sold wood home furnishings and other gardening-related decorations, she said. Other vendors such as Cathy Lyons and her husband, Doug Hoffmann, of Melrose, sold recycled melted bottles, chimes, bottle trees and jewelry during Saturday’s festival. “We like the fact that this is a local event,” she said. “It’s a good, steady show that brings people in with diverse talents and hobbies.” The tables of plants started emptying as customers walked away with several plants at a time. “The plants are beautiful, and the prices are great,” said Tina Roberts, president of the Lake City Garden Club, who was at the festival getting ideas from the Master Gardeners. Roberts said she had seen twice the number of people attending this year’s festival. “We’re proud to have Garden Club members that are Master Gardeners,” she said. “We’re hoping to get ideas from them and maybe be a part of this event next year.” PLANTSContinued From 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterTom Cissell (right) and his son, Heath, 19, look for plants for their home at Saturday’s plant sale.

While the referees took turns making calls on the field, Fort White and Columbia took part in a six-team scrimmage that also included Gainesville, Buchholz, Lincoln and Madison. It was the teams’ first competition against opponents this spring. Fort White, which will play in Class 1A this upcoming season, battled with schools that were in Class 8A and 7A, including Columbia. Indians’ head coach Demetric Jackson purposely invited bigger schools to the event when he found out his school would be the host to provide tougher competition for his team heading into its spring game against Newberry on May 22. “We held our own, we were outmanned in some areas, but I think we kind of held our own,” Jackson said. “We gotta get better in a lot of areas but we will get better,” Jackson said. Columbia head coach Brian Allen declined to speak with the Lake City Reporter. Fort White and Columbia each ended up facing four opponents instead of three after Lincoln’s arrival was delayed when its bus broke down. Teams went at each other for 30 minutes apiece with a run-ning clock, taking eight plays at the 40-yard line before moving to the 20yard line for eight more and then a final four at the 10-yard line.

CHS and Fort White compete in scrimmage Saturday morning.By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comDown, set, shuck? In the midst of Columbia’s spring practice, not one player, at any position, has been named an uncontested starter for the upcoming season — even at quarterback. However sophomore quarterback Davin Shuck is confident he’ll be leading the Tigers behind cen-ter this fall. Last season the Tigers were led by quarterback Jake Thomas, but the junior standout has yet to report to football practice. “If he comes, he just going to be backup anyway,” Shuck said. “I don’t know. (Thomas) says he’s going to come (to practice) but he doesn’t.” Thomas did not attend the six-team scrimmage at Fort White Saturday morning. The Tigers played Saturday with Shuck and sophomore Jamille Bullock at quarterback. Thomas never solidified himself as the starter in last year’s battle as Shuck also made appearances. Thomas, who also plays center field for the Columbia baseball team, remains unsure if he’ll be play football his senior season. “I’ve got some really big decisions (to make),” Thomas said. “Coach Allen and I haven’t talked about any of it. After telling him I was playing baseball this spring, (Allen) advised me to keep my options open and I haven’t really talked to him since.” One thing is certain. Columbia’s coaching staff has moved forward at the position in Thomas’s absence. “From what I’ve been told, (Shuck) is who coach Allen is going with,” Thomas said. “Davin is a good friend and a good QB too. We always worked together as a team. I wish him the best.” Columbia head coach Brian Allen declined com-ment. No timetable has been set when, or if, Thomas will make his return to what he calls “his team.” With baseball season over, Thomas says he plans on getting back in football shape since he’s been away from practice. Shuck appeared in five games last season, including the playoff loss to St. Augustine. Both Thomas and Shuck finished the year with similar numbers. Columbia will continue spring practice this week before hosting its Purple & Gold game Friday night. The Tigers will then host Duval Charter in their spring game on May 23. Jake Thomas has yet to appear at Columbia spring practice. Wilson signs with Illinois Valley CCBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comIt all started when Lona Wilson was 2 years old, when she couldn’t even close her eyes at night with-out a basketball in her bed. “I knew when she started sleeping with it that she was going to be a basketball player,” Wilson’s moth-er Regenia Wilson said. Fast-forward 16 years later and that’s exactly what she’s become. Wilson, 18, sat in front of family, friends and teachers in the Columbia High School auditorium Friday afternoon before signing her letter of intent to play college basketball at Illinois Valley Community College this fall. “I picked Illinois Valley because I really liked the [head] coach [Tom Ptak],” Wilson said. “He was very friendly, he offered me a lot of good things, he promised me a lot of good things and I liked the school. I really liked their criminal justice program and the basketball program can be really, really good.” Wilson’s journey to a scholarship was different than most who receive offers from programs. Three years ago she signed up for a subscription on a website called the National Collegiate Scouting Association, a recruiting website that allows users to upload videos of their games and then edits the player’s best plays into a highlight reel. Regenia Wilson would record all of Lona’s games on her iPad and then download them onto a flash drive before sending it off to the NCSA. From there the NCSA would pick out Wilson’s best plays to put in her highlight film and then post it on their JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterColumbia girls basketball player Lona Wilson signed her letter of intent to play at Illinois Valley Community College this fall.

Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. Jags’ Fowler remains upbeat after season-ending injury By BILL CORMIERAssociated PressATLANTA — Attorneys for top NFL draft pick Jameis Winston contend a woman seeking civil dam-ages from the quarterback after accusing him of rape is trying to tarnish his reputation and tap into the Heisman Trophy winner’s newfound wealth. The counterclaim was filed a week after Winston signed a four-year, $23.35 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lawyers for the former Florida State star filed the counterclaim against Erica Kinsman in federal court in Orlando. In it, his attorneys alleged Friday that Kinsman cre-ated a “media circus,” then initiated settlement discus-sions in which her lawyers demanded $7 million from Winston. “Ms. Kinsman has been successful in one major area,” the filing by attor-neys for the 2013 Heisman winner said. “She has mounted a false and vicious media campaign to vilify Mr. Winston with the objective of getting him to pay her to go away. Ms. Kinsman is motivated by the most insid-ious objectives — greed.” Kinsman, a former FSU student, claims she was drunk at a Tallahassee bar in December 2012 when Winston and others took her to an apartment, where she says the quarterback raped her. Winston has repeatedly denied the allegations and said the two had consensual sex. Prosecutors have declined to charge Winston and FSU cleared him of any wrongdoing in a two-day student conduct hearing. Kinsman filed a lawsuit two weeks before the April 30 NFL draft, accusing Winston of rape, assault, false imprisonment and emotional distress. “This is an interesting choice by Mr. Winston,” Kinsman’s attorney, John Clune, said Saturday in response to the new filing. “The counterclaims put all of his prior misconduct front and center in the case by alleging injury to his ‘good reputation’ and the burden of proof is now on him. Refusing to answer ques-tions isn’t going to work here. I’m not sure how well this will end up for him.” Winston was in Tampa on Saturday, participating in the final day of a rookie minicamp. The Buccaneers, who selected Winston No. 1 overall after spending near-ly five months vetting the 21-year-old quarterback, had no comment on the counterclaim. They did not plan to make Winston avail-able following practice. The quarterback’s filing repeatedly refers to Kinsman’s claims as “lies,” saying the encounter between the two was proven by medical evidence and two teammate witnesses to be nothing more than consen-sual. It says Kinsman chose to leave the bar and didn’t object in the taxi ride to the apartment, or when the two got out, and that she later rode on Winston’s scooter with her arms around his waist, then hugging him before she walked to her dorm. She did not dial 911, nor call or text family or friends to tell them what happened, the filing said. “Ms. Kinsman has made the false statements in an effort to cause damage to Mr. Winston’s reputation and to coerce and extort him to give her money and ‘make her go away,’” the attorneys wrote. “Ms. Kinsman was aware that Mr. Winston was likely to earn a substantial amount of money in salary, bonus-es, and endorsements as a professional NFL football player.” Winston is the one who has actually suffered, the filing claims, say-ing Kinsman is guilty of defamation for repeatedly accusing him of “commit-ting a crime that he did not commit.” Winston, who was at the start of rookie minicamp Friday and set to return Saturday, has not yet com-mented on his latest filing. The Associated Press doesn’t routinely identify people who say they’re sexual assault victims. However, Kinsman told her story publicly in a documentary. The court filing obtained by the AP and first reported by The Tampa Bay Times said Winston requested a jury hear the matter. A spokeswoman for Winston’s attorney, John Meyers, declined to com-ment Saturday. Winston files counterclaim, denies he raped woman By MARK LONG Associated PressJACKSONVILLE — Dante Fowler Jr. hobbled out of the locker room on crutches Saturday, his left leg heavily wrapped, and flashed a smile that rivaled those at the NFL draft last week. He wasn’t just putting on a happy face, either. Fowler looked and sounded as upbeat as possible following a significant and season-ending knee injury. The Jacksonville Jaguars rookie, the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a rookie minicamp Friday. He called the setback “bitter-sweet” because he expects to return bigger, stronger and better next year. “It’s just one of them unfortunate things,” Fowler said. “If I would have never got hurt (Friday), we would have been talking about probably how good I was in practice. I was feeling good. It was a great first hour. Hopefully we’re going to have a lot of good years to come.” Fowler’s knee buckled during an 11-on-11 drill during the first of a two-day rookie camp. Fowler had to be helped off the field and carted to the locker room. Tests later revealed the extent of the damage. The former Florida defensive end could have felt sorry for himself and his sit-uation. Instead, his attitude was so positive that even ultra-optimistic coach Gus Bradley was impressed. “I see why we drafted him when we did,” Bradley said. “His spirit, his mindset going into this. I find it hard to be matched. For me, my concern was to know how he’s going to handle it, and once I had a chance to visit with him, knowing what he’s going through and how he’s going to attack this, very optimistic about Dante and how he’s going to do it. “There’s no doubt in his mind he’s coming back, bigger, stronger and going to take advantage of this opportunity.” Although the Jaguars stopped short of saying Fowler would miss the entire season Friday, Bradley made it clear Saturday that he would be out all of 2015. “He’s going to be very involved with us,” Bradley said. “You’ll see him on road trips. He’ll travel with us. He’ll be involved in meetings. We’ll keep him engaged. There’s a whole bunch of other areas that I think he’ll have tremen-dous growth from.” Fowler was the first non-quarterback selected last week, taken by the Jaguars after quarterbacks Jameis Winston (Tampa Bay) and Marcus Mariota (Tennessee). The Jaguars were counting on Fowler to be a cen-terpiece of the defense for years. They had expected him to be a Day 1 starter, meaning he would replace 33-year-old veteran Chris Clemons. Instead, they will have to wait a year to get him back on the practice field. “In the future, a year from now, we’ll be all smiling again and talking about me sacking people,” Fowler said. Fowler had 14 ½ sacks in three years at Florida, including 8 ½ last season, and was the best player on a solid defense. He didn’t miss a game with the Gators, and the last injury he could recall was a separated shoulder in high school that prompted a move from running back to defense. Even then, he didn’t miss any games. The last time he sat out because of injury was as a kid playing Pop Warner. Fowler tore his ACL Friday in Jacksonville’s ¿UVWGD\RIPLQLFDPS

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 10, 2015 3B Jackson made multiple plays at the quarterback position for Columbia and Fort White, respec-tively. Shuck threw 10-plus touchdowns by the time the day was over and didn’t throw an intercep-tion. He had great protec-tion from his offensive line throughout the morning as well as help from his running game, led by Latrell Williams. “Offensive wise we’re holding up pretty good,” Shuck said. “I had plen-ty of time to pick the defense apart...run-ning backs played well. Offensively we’re getting there.” D.J. Jackson threw two touchdown passes, one to Shannon Showers on a fade route and another to Nick McClain on a corner route in addition to running one in himself. “I felt good out there,” D.J. Jackson said. “The guys did a good job of get-ting open for me and I got them the ball.” Demtric Jackson liked what he saw from his quar-terback as well as running back Donald Robinson but admitted some of his young guys need some more experience. That’s what Saturday’s scrimmage was all about. “We made some plays here and there and had some guys step up but we had some young kids that their eyes opened up and saw some things they haven’t seen in a game before so those are the things that we can’t necessarily simu-late in practice so the more exposure we get in something like this the better it’s going to be for us,” Jackson said. Saturday was also an opportunity for Columbia’s first-year defensive coordinator Chris Martinez to show off his new defense and it put on a performance. Roger Cray and Dariaun Dallas each had intercep-tions on the day while Columbia’s front seven had countless tackles for loss. “The D-line did a good job today,” Martinez said. “I like to praise my big guys, they don’t get no praise but they do a good job controlling their gaps and a lot of times that doesn’t show up but it helps us play on the back end.” Demtric Jackson on the other hand wants to see more out of Fort White’s defense, which lost mul-tiple key starters from a season ago. “Nothing really stood out, I think we saw so many variations of an offense and we don’t necessarily see that in practice so it’s tough,” Demtric Jackson said. “We gotta get better in that.” Fort White will have an opportunity to this week when it hosts its Red & Black game on Thursday. Columbia hosts its Purple & Gold game on Friday. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterFort White quarterback D.J. Jackson scans the field for an o pen receiver on Saturday.

According to Regenia, Wilson heard from 16 schools before she decided on Illinois Valley Community College. Wilson says the school’s classroom environ-ment also played a big fac-tor in her decision to head north to Oglesby, Illinois. “I feel like college is not all about partying and the sports and stuff, it’s about the academics and for me personally, I function better in a small classroom filled with a smaller number of students, that way I can interact with professors better,” Wilson said. Wilson credits her family for all their support as well as Columbia girls basketball coach Sheena Carter, who only took over as Columbia’s head coach before the begin-ning of this past season. “She has been a great influence, not only as a coach, but also as a mentor,” Wilson said. “She befriended us well. We could talk to her about anything. As a coach she was hard on the floor, she was hard on us and it worked best. She always kept it bas-ketball business on the court and off the court we could be friends, but on the court it was strictly business.” Carter says she saw a lot of growth from Wilson in just their one year together in purple and gold. “It was a pleasure to have Lona play for me this sea-son,” Carter said. “She gave her all on every play. There’s so many things I could say about her…a lot of times I thought she gave up on us but at the end she would come back and do what she had to do. She would call after games and ask what she did wrong and I would tell her and she would try to correct it. Sometimes we can’t always correct it the way we want to but she tried her best to correct them and that’s all that we can ask of her. I’m proud of her in every aspect of her life right now.” After Wilson gets her associate’s degree at Illinois Valley Community College she hopes to trans-fer to another institution in Illinois, possibly DePaul University, to finish her bachelor’s degree in crimi-nal justice and possibly fur-ther her basketball career.

PETERSBURG — Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb will have season-ending elbow ligament replacement sur-gery. Cobb said before Friday night’s game against Texas that several doctors have told that the ligament has a full tear. Surgery may be next week. “It’s a tough decision because you want to hold on to every last hope of being able to pitch this year,” Cobb said. “But I think not only for my own future and going into next season and contributing for the team next year, better not to waste any more time and just go ahead and do it.” Cobb said the best-case scenario would be return-ing to pitch late next sea-son. “It’s going to be a long time,” he said. “Going into the 2017 season really not having any doubt in my mind.” Cobb, who left a spring training start March 17 because of pain in his fore-arm, was going to start opening day but instead began the season on the 15-day disabled list. He went 10-9 with a 2.87 ERA in 27 starts last sea-son. WILSON Continued From Page 1B

Visualization of a typical apartment I f you read my column weekly you know that almost all of my per sonal trips and adventures revolve around my buddies (past and present), brother and dad. My weekends growing up were spent at the ball fields, or on the water (beach, pool, fish ing). With two daughters who look to be more into casual gymnastics than weekends playing travel softball, it’ll be interesting to see how our weekend dynamic ultimately evolves. (Note I’m writing this on the way to Disney World). One thing I know for sure is that you can’t make memories sitting at home in front of the TV, so we’ll always be traveling and tak ing trips as a family. If you noticed, I didn’t include my wife of 10 years, Andrea, in that first paragraph. Why? She’s not opposed to fishing, but her ideal weekend is sleeping past 8 a.m., peacefully read ing a book by the beach and eating a relaxing, fresh meal. My version of fishing involves getting up at 4:15 a.m., aggressively casting a rod for 10 to 12 hours and quickly munching on soggy PBJ’s if there’s ever a spare minute. She likes to “ride” in the boat for endless hours just because; I like to “ride” in between fishing spots as fast as humanly possible to get to the fish. With all of this being said, none of my personal trips/ adventures happen unless she is willing to stay behind and watch our daughters. However you want to spin it, whether it’s fishing, hunting or developing Outdoors360; none of this happens with out her support and sacri fice. It simply can’t. Does that mean she’s always eager to wake up solo on a Saturday morning or be responsible for taking one daughter to school and one to the sitter on a weekday? Nope. Not even close. But, she does it time after time, year after year and for that I’m extremely thankful. I wanted to give Andrea a glimpse into my passion for fishing minus the “bad stuff.” We weren’t going to wake up early; in fact, I wanted to plan a fishing trip for the afternoon/early eve ning time. That way we’d eat a lunch from a restaurant (Chick fil-A), the tempera ture wouldn’t be too hot or cold, bugs would be AWOL, she could relax (or fish) and we’d finish with a nice dinner at another restau rant (BurgerFi). Side-note, make sure to get the giant onion rings to eat with your delicious burger when you visit BurgerFi. As a bonus, I didn’t want her to worry about trailering the boat, loading and unloading at the ramp or any of the normal boat aggravation. This fish ing trip was going to be the Ritz Carlton of fishing trips. How does all of this hap pen? Easy. You fish with a charter captain! This trip was planned just a few days after my success ful trip with Captain Buzz Brannon. He’s a good friend with another Captain, who I knew from my days liv ing in Jacksonville, Captain Ron Schurr. We showed up at the ramp with a cooler. That’s it. I felt completely naked. Normally I’d have enough tackle, rods, and extra gear for an army. Ron already had the boat in the water, so we hopped out of the car and took off down the St. Johns River. We arrived at the first spot, and Ron figured we had about an hour before the redfish turned on with the falling tide. Andrea put on her sunscreen, laid out a towel and opened her maga zine on the back of the boat. Why not? No kids, plenty of time, perfect weather and we had a while to wait...five minutes later I had a 25” redfish on the end of my line. Talk about customer service; park the car and within 30 minutes a redfish is peeling drag! Within another 30 min utes we had a twin redfish on the end of the line. This spot was supposed to be just the appetizer for the next spot, or so we thought. Ron had an epic day just 24 hours earlier (dozens of over-slot redfish) and we were waiting at this exact location for the changing of the tide. We set up camp at the right spot, the right tide and the right time. Everything was perfect. Unfortunately, we were immediately greeted by a family of dolphin destroy ing fish (we assume “our” redfish) at the mouth of the creek. The redfish never moved through like they had the afternoon before, and I think Flipper and his cousins were fully respon sible. Andrea kept casting and working the live bait like a semi-pro fisherwom an, catching some solid trout. We caught some bluefish, more trout and a flounder before calling it an afternoon. We stayed out quite a bit later than we anticipated, and she never complained (luckily the bugs never showed). We took a few photos, released the red fish to fight another day and motored back to the dock. Andrea’s Ritz Carlton fishing trip was worthy of a five-star rating, which matched her five-star rating as the mother of our two beautiful daughters.

Here are some ideas to help you prioritize home remodeling endeavors.Create curb appeal“The main thing is to make sure it has good curb appeal,” said Sandy Kishton, local RE/MAX real estate agent. “If it doesn’t look good on the outside, people aren’t going to want to go on the inside.” Begin the process of preparing your home for sale at the front door by creating an inviting entryway that will entice potential buyers even before they step foot inside. Adding a pop of color to your front door will make a statement, and changing out the hardware fixtures will update the look instantly. Cleaning up your lawn, power-washing siding, and planting trees, bushes and flowers are simple ways to invest in your home’s curb appeal. Lining the walkway with solar-powered lights is also a nice touch.Update the bathroomBathrooms and kitchens are the most popular renovation projects, with the greatest number of consumers concentrating their attention on the bath, according to a recent Houzz and Home survey of homeowners. “Anything you can do to a kitchen or bath is best,” Kishton said. “That’s where you get the most money back on return.” When remodeling, focus on details that can quickly update the space, such as installing quality fixtures. As you begin the selection process for new bath fixtures, consider those with a timeless style that will be appreciated by you and a wide variety of home buyers.

Note that there are some restrictions and rules governing contribu-tions to and withdrawals from retire-ment plans. If your annual income is in the six-figure range, for example, your allowable contribution might be reduced. The more you save and invest for retirement now, the more secure your future will be. Ten thousand dollars invested annually and earn-ing an annual average of 10 percent will amount to roughly $350,000 in 15 years.

K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Steel YourselfSteelmaker Nucor (NYSE: NUE) recently reported a mixed bag of first-quarter financial results. However, much of that is out of the company’s control and simply tied to the current MARKETENVIRONMENT2EFLECTINGTHEweak market, revenue and earnings dropped by 14 percent and 40 percent, respectively, over year-ago levels. On a more positive note, with steel prices down due to global overcapac-ity and heavy import pressure, scrap prices fell 19 percent. That’s good, because Nucor buys a lot of scrap metal to recycle. While the U.S. government took some steps in 2014 to level the play-ing field, it’s clear that Nucor and other domestic steelmakers will have to vie with imports for the time being. Fortunately, Nucor can operate profit-ably even at these challenging levels. Demand for steel in nonresidential construction is growing. This seg-ment has been depressed since the 2008-2009 financial crisis and is only beginning to recover. The low price of oil has reduced drilling activity, though, and along with it, demand for steel and pipes. Nucor remains one of the bestrun steelmakers out there, but there’s no getting around the cycli-cal weakness in the market today. Still, with a recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 21, well below its five-year average, and a dividend that recently yielded 3.1 percent, Nucor stock is appealingly priced and offer-ing significant income for patient believers.

We sold at a big loss. — A.D., online The Fool Responds: There are certainly some people whose homes appreciate greatly in value over the years. But many other people sell for a loss or simply don’t make much over many years. Since World War II, home prices have averaged annual growth of about 5 percent, which, adjusted for inflation, is closer to 1.5 or 2 percent annually. To make good money, you need to be in the right place, at the right time — which is hard to do. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t buy homes. They’re great for providing comfort and shelter and raising families. Just don’t think of your home as a money-making investment, because over long periods, you’re likely to make far more money in other investments, such as stocks. Stocks have averaged close to 10 percent annually over many decades, or about 7 percent, adjusted for inflation.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Page Editor: Eleanor Ransburg, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 10, 2015 3D DEAR ABBY: My wife and I will be legally divorced within a few weeks. We have a 1-year-old son. Although we have been separated for eight months, she is an awesome mother to our son. A man could not ask for a better lady to care for his child. We don’t talk about much other than our son. We are no longer in love, but I can honestly say I love her for who she is — the mother of my child. Mother’s Day is here and I would like her to know how much I appre ciate all she has done, is doing and will do for our boy. Would it be appro priate to send a quick message expressing this to her? Or should I leave it alone? — HOUSTON DADDY DEAR DADDY: I’m a firm believer that if you think something nice, you should share it. You should absolutely express your thoughts. While the two of you may no longer be in love, I’m sure she would be grati fied to know that she has your respect and appreci ation. Read on: DEAR ABBY: For sev eral years after my wife and I married, we could not have a child. Then God smiled on us. We adopted a precious boy and later a girl, and our lives changed forever. Every year on Mother’s Day, my thoughts turn to my wife, my mother and my wife’s mother. But there is also always that special feeling for the birth mothers of my chil dren. Were it not for their unselfish love, I would not be writing this letter. So, birth mothers, if you wonder what became of the children you pre sented for adoption, they have grown up, they have been loved and they are happy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your gift of love to us. You will never be forgotten. — PROUD ADOPTIVE FATHER DEAR FATHER: Surrounded by so much love and gratitude, I’m sure your children have devel oped into successful adults. DEAR ABBY: Last year was my first Mother’s Day without my mom. Because I was feeling down, I bought a bouquet of flowers, car ried it to a nursing home, handed it to a nurse and asked her to give it to a mom who wouldn’t get anything for Mother’s Day. It was bittersweet, but it boosted my spirits on what was a sad day. Just wanted to share. — GWEN’S SON IN OHIO DEAR SON: Thank you for sharing. I miss my mom, too. Gwen must have been a lovely, caring per son to have raised such a thoughtful son. DEAR ABBY: For Mother’s Day, I want to say how much I love and appreciate my mom. I can never thank her enough for adopting me when I was a sick and abandoned infant. She has been to hell and back with me, but has never condemned my actions. She would just pick me up and point me in the right direction. It has been 57 years since God sent this angel to save me (with my dad as backup), and she still guides me every day. Her kind smile and words literally saved my life. — LOVED IN OMAHA DEAR READERS: Today I’m wishing a happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere — birth mothers, adoptive and foster mothers, stepmothers and grand mothers who are raising grandchildren.

Hunter, Inc. 1130 US Hwy 90 W (386) 752-5890 WE NOW HAVE ETHANOL FREE PLUS GASOLINEOnly atINTENDED USES: BOATS & WATERCRAFT COLLECTIBLE VEHICLES OFF-ROAD VEHICLES MOTORCYCLES SMALL ENGINES the bread. Come to find out Robert doesn’t like hummus but he was a good sport. He didn’t say a word and tried it. He then confessed but said he loved it and he would definitely order it again. Put this on your “got to try” list. Mike wanted us to taste the onion rings and the Fire & Smoke Flatbread ($9.99). The onion rings are beer battered and fried to perfection and arrived stacked on a spindle. They were hot, crispy and very tasty. The Watertown Artisan Flatbreads, 11 choices, are all unique. The Fire & Smoke was a real treat. The flatbread was loaded with aged melted cheddar, caramel ized onions and garlic, house-smoked beef bris ket, brown-ale BBQ sauce and topped with jalapeños. Now who’s not going to like that? Robert ordered the Lake Desoto Dip ($9.99). A buttery, toasted hoagie bun was loaded with thinly sliced ribeye steak, melted cheese and a side of au jus dipping sauce. Mike had the Lake Isabella Fish Tacos ($9.99), which was two flour tacos with blackened (grilled or fried available too) Mahi with cilantro, cabbage, shred ded cheese, pico de gallo and spicy Marion sauce. I had the Blanche Burger ($8.99). It is a delicious half-pound fresh ground charbroiled beef patty with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayonnaise. There are sliced pickles on top that just make this perfect. I don’t rave about hamburgers, but this is a keeper. The three of us discussed our choices and tastings and couldn’t pick a winner. They were all unique, tasty, delicious and made with the freshest ingredients. The presen tations stood out for me as all dishes were uniquely garnished or arranged to make it even more appeal ing. I also loved all the different original sauces. That all works for me. So, kudos to the Marion Street Chef from the three of us. You are going to find lots of things on the menu you’ll want to try. In fact, it becomes hard to choose even though this isn’t a huge menu. A few that grabbed me are Greek Salmon ($16.99), which is sautéed fresh salmon topped with feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, olive oil and oregano; Chicken & Waffles ($9.99), with Belgian-style waffle, served with their special recipe fried chicken, house-made raspberry butter and house-made raspberry syrup; Osceola Chicken ($14.99), twin Cajun-style chicken breasts basted with buffalo wing sauce and topped with bleu cheese crumbles. Many more choices will just require you to visit Marion Street Pub and see for yourself. I have to mention des serts, even though we weren’t able to try one. There were eight choices, including Peanut Butter Pie, Tiramisu, Funnel Cake, Red Velvet donuts and Crème Brulee. The bar is a big draw for customers, and on Wednesdays through Saturdays there is live music starting at 6:30. If you like fresh oysters, go visit them on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. They are shucked when you order them. In talking with the owner, Ron Roberts, he explained a lot more about the restaurant than is vis ible at first glance. The building was built in 1909 by James Wiley Lanier, a pharmacist. It has housed numerous businesses over these 116 years. During the restoration process, many of the building’s features were restored to their original form, includ ing the 1909 tin ceilings and crown moldings, the three-layer brick walls and the pine flooring. It now resembles the appearance of the 1909 building. The original ceramic tile in the outdoor patio area remains to this day. Ron needs a big thank-you from all of us in his attempt to save our historic downtown and retell its story. Seated at the table I enjoyed looking at all the features Ron has captured, for example the see-through fireplace separating the main din ing from the bar area, the old Lake City photos framed and hung on the old brick walls, a large stained glass window and the large feature art piece of the Blanche painted by Kelli Ronsonet. There are exposed pipes, ceiling fans, American flags flying at the entrance, old clocks and potted plants. All make the ambience perfect for an enjoyable visit and meal. The chef, James Palm, is French-trained and stud ied at a culinary school in South Florida. He came here after working in West Palm Beach restaurants and has been here since the day the Pub opened. Tim Van-Skyhawk came from the Lake City Holiday Inn and is the general manager. The wait staff is busy, but I felt our waitress, Amber, did a great job on making sure we were happy. In fact, Robert and Mike’s food was ready before mine and she asked if I would mind if she went ahead and served them. I liked that she asked. In the back of the restaurant there is an open kitchen where there is some serious and hard work going on. Ron grew up in the Philadelphia area and was scrubbing pots and pans as a little boy, so he’s not new to the restaurant scene. He actually knows what a real Philly Steak is supposed to taste like. I asked him about future plans, and he talked so fast I couldn’t keep up. You can expect menu changes coming soon. He described a California Club, which will have avocado, fresh mozza rella, tomato, baby arugula and pesto mayo on a whole grain wrap or bread. All chicken will be free range, steak selections will include Chairman’s Reserve top-of-the-line 15-ounce rib-eyes and center-cut filets. Only fresh wild salmon will be served, and coming soon is an appetizer of crawfish fondue that will be served in bread bowls with chips. I’ve got one of those reserved already. Ron says they will be expanding into the building next door starting June 1, so that’ll help with the number of people that can be served at one time. Right now the seating size is 120 people. I don’t think I’ll have to twist Robert and Mike’s arms to join me on my next visit, and besides that, they were just fun to be with. The telephone number is 487-6194. Hours are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight. One hour before midnight you can choose from a smaller, lighter menu with items such as sliders, appetiz ers, wings and burgers. Delivery service is avail able for items over $20 and within 5 miles. Catering is also available and will be arranged on your individu al needs. Ron is passionate about having quality food and service for all of us. If you haven’t visited Marion Street, be prepared for an all-around delightful expe rience giving you a taste of excellent food and a small glimpse of how Lake City used to be.

(yellow and orange-red) and black-eyed Susan. You may see blue-eyed grass, which is not really a grass at all but a relative of the garden iris. Many of these are naturally occurring wildflowers that have been well-managed by our coun ty and the Department of Transportation. In addition, native wildflower seeds, grown in Florida, have been planted and maintained. If you are thinking about adding your own planting of wild flower seeds, fall is the time to plant. To make certain your seeds come from local sources, go to the website http://flawild flowers.org/. There is a surge of interest in planting native species, especially native plants that are adapted to local conditions. The prin ciple of “the right plant in the right place” refers to choosing plant species and varieties that are adapted to the location and situ ation in which they are placed. Native plants can better support native wild life and potentially reduce maintenance require ments, thus aiding efforts of environmental sustain ability. As this popularity continues, it is becoming easier to find native, local ly grown plants for sale in garden centers. A plant grown under cul tivation in our landscape probably will not compare to the same species as it grows in the wild. Keep this in mind when reading the information on a plant that describes its charac teristics when growing in natural populations. Try to keep your inputs, such as water and soil amendments, as basic as the requirements of the wild plant. Plants that are native to sandhills and scrub ecosystems won’t require the soil moisture and fertility that are need ed by bottomland forest or flatwood plants. Coddling plants may increase their size, open growth habit and rate, pest activity and early demise. You and your plants will proba bly be unhappy with the results. The principle of “right plant, right place” is important when selecting native flowers for your landscape. Consider the specific growth require ments of the plant. Do they match the charac teristics of your yard? Let’s say your home is located in what was once a hardwood hammock, but human activities and construction have changed that ecosystem drastically. Soils have been replaced, shade and wind patterns altered, and drainage changed by com paction. When choosing your plants, consider your present site conditions, not those from the past. The characteristics and requirements of many Florida native flowers and shrubs can be found in the Florida-Friendly Plant List available at http://fyn.ifas.ufl.edu/pdf/FYN_Plant_Selection_Guide_v090110.pdf . and several other activ ities provided by more than 30 vendors. In addition cartoon characters such as Spiderman, fairies and princesses are also slat ed to make an appear ance at the event provid ed by Infinity Con. Jordan Wade, Kiwanis Club of Lake City pres ident, said the concept of the event originated after the Kiwanis Club held an event for adults, Big Boy Toys Expo, where several children attended. “The event was designed for adult men and boys in gen eral, and we decided if we’re getting that many children at this event, why don’t we focus an event toward children, and that way we can draw that crowd,” he said. “We found that to be very beneficial to draw sponsorships, gain excitement in the com munity and to form part nerships that are really making a difference.” Each of the event’s vendors will provide an entertaining game for the youths. “One of the most popular activities at our Big Boy Toys event was our archery setup,” Wade said. “Now we’re getting the youth bows where children can come and shoot. It was a wildly popular activity. We had kids that would return over and over again to that same booth.” The event will also feature a BB-gun shoot ing booth and the Early Learning Coalition of Florida’s Gateway will have a sandbox on site for younger children. Concession vendors will be selling ice cream, rootbeer, hot dogs, ham burgers and other items at special event rates. Summerall said the Kiwanis Club of Lake City plans to send out approximately 10,000 fli ers to local households through children who attend public schools and area daycare cen ters telling them about the inaugural event. Additional information is posted on the Kiwanis Kids Day at Lake City Facebook page. Advance tickets for the event can be pur chased at The Lake City Advertiser or Ronsonet Buick-GMC.
