From staff reportsTraffic on US 90 West between Lake City Avenue and Brown Road will be shifted to the north side of the road, eliminating the center left turn lane for the duration of the widening project, state officials said. The traffic shift, scheduled to begin Monday, will provide workers with room to build the new roadway on the south side of the existing US 90 for the future eastbound lanes. After the eastbound lanes are built, all traffic will be shifted to the south roadway and the westbound lanes will be built. Access to business driveways during business hours will be maintained. The traffic signal at US 90 and Pinemount Road/Turner Avenue is being adjusted in advance of the traffic shift, and pavement markings are being removed as well. Temporary pavement has been added along the north shoulder of the existing roadway to provide the room needed to shift traffic. Motorists may experience delays when vehicles turning left have to wait for traffic to clear before making their left turns from the through traffic lanes. Drivers should allow for extra time to get to work, school and appointments. The project will: Widen US 90 to four lanes in the area of Interstate 75. Add bike lanes and sidewalks to both sides of the roadway.

Some were even seeking the presidency. It’s a time-honored tradition that goes back at least as far as 1948, according to one local historian. That trend will continue Monday when GOP hopeful Marco Rubio addresses local voters at Florida Gateway College. The event will take place at 7 p.m. at the FGC Howard Conference Center. General admission tickets are $25. A VIP reception preceding the assembly is $100 and begins at 5 p.m. The money raised — none of which goes to Rubio — stays right here at home and will be divided among the regional Republican Executive Committees planning the event. Local residents remember campaign stops by other White House hopefuls.

Leaving a helpless child in the sweltering heat of a closed car isn’t something most people would do on purpose, but the ability to make mistakes — however horrific — is actually hardwired into the human brain, according to experts in human psychology. National figures indicate that on average nearly 40 children die each year after being left in a hot car. A Lake City toddler lost her life Tuesday in such an incident. “It’s too easy to point the finger and pass the blame,” said Robert Denny, a retired licensed mental health counselor and former adjunct instructor of psychology at Florida Gateway College. “The truth is, it’s so easy for the human brain to forget things, and it doesn’t mean you were a bad parent, it means that you’re human.” While Denny taught college students for years about the mind and how it functions, he’s only human himself, and recounted ‘It’s too easy to point the finger’ TRAGEDY continued on 2A Experts: Tragic death of baby left in vehicle could happen to anyone.

Many years back, Denny and his wife took their new born son on a shopping trip. They went from store to store with the baby in the stroller, and people would comment about how cute he was, Denny said. “Then finally we got in the car, we look at each other and we go, ‘Didn’t we forget something?’ “ Denny said. “And right there in the shop, we had left him.” The child in this case escaped harm. However, the incident left a lasting impression on Denny. “When we trust our memory, we’re in danger,” he said. James Brinkley, assis tant chief of Lifeguard Ambulance Service in Columbia County, said the danger is only rising. “We’re becoming more and more distracted as par ents,” he said. Brinkley said people are routinely pulled in too many directions at once. “It’s easy for some peo ple to get caught up in their daily routines and forget things,” he said. “How many times do you leave your cell phone in the car?” Most people wouldn’t equate a cell phone with a baby. But experts say the human brain isn’t wired to see it that way. David Diamond, a University of South Florida professor of molecular physiology, explained this to Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post for a 2009 story that later won a Pulitzer Prize. “Our conscious mind pri oritizes things by impor tance, but on a cellular level, our memory does not,” Diamond said. “If you’re capable of forgetting your cell phone, you are potentially capable of for getting your child.” While the demands of modern life appear to play a big role in tragedies such as these, there’s something else at work as well. Before the 1990s, deaths due to children being left in cars were extremely uncommon. It was then that the push began to get kids out of front seats due to the dan gers of air bags (the first infant death due to air-bag deployment having been reported in 1995). And not only were infants now relegated to the back seat, but rear-facing car seats were also deemed safer. Combined, these new rules made it far easier for a harried parent to forget the baby was there at all. So how do you prevent the unbearable heartbreak of losing a child to your own forgetfulness? A few ideas have been floating around in recent years. One is to place a cell phone, purse, briefcase or even a shoe — something you would definitely need at your next stop — in the back seat next to the child. Or keep a stuffed ani mal in the unoccupied child seat, and when the child is placed there, move the toy to the front seat as a visual reminder that the child is back there. Another tip is to set an alarm or alert on your phone for an audio remind er to check the car. In addition, you can ask your day care provider to call if your child doesn’t show up at the usual time. Denny also suggested attaching a picture, note or something symbolic relating to your child on your key ring, so that the reminder is there when you pull your keys out of the ignition. Work has been done as well on back-seat sensors that sound an alarm when a child remains in the seat after the driver’s seat has been vacated for more than a couple of minutes. However, liability con cerns have reportedly hampered progress on that front. As Floridians know, the sun can heat the interior of a vehicle to deadly tempera tures within a matter of min utes. Studies have shown that when the outside tem perature is 85 degrees, it takes less than 10 minutes for the inside of a car to reach 100 degrees, a news release from Lifeguard Ambulance said. In less than 30 minutes, the tem perature inside a vehicle can exceed 120 degrees. A child’s body heats up faster than an adult’s, and it doesn’t take long for trage dy to ensue. That’s why it’s a mad race to get there when a child has been left in a locked car, whatever the circumstances. “At least four or five times a month, we get calls that a parent has acciden tally locked their kids in the car,” Brinkley said. In most cases the par ent catches the error right away, and the child is freed safely within minutes. But there are other cases in which a child, seeing the car as a playground or perhaps out to make use of the sophisticated electron ics found in many modern vehicles, will crawl in on his own without a parent’s knowledge. This, too, can lead to disaster. When tragedies involv ing kids — whatever the cause — hit a little too close to home, Brinkley said his coping mechanism is to call his wife and check on his children immediately. “Instead of passing judg ment, hold your kids close and thank God you have them for another day,” he said.

Rubio is far from the first presidential hopeful to visit the county. Longtime Lake City resident and local historian Morris Williams remembers a number of such folks visiting Lake City through the years, going back to when he was a youngster. The first was then-U.S. Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, running under the banner of the States Rights Democratic Party — also known as Dixiecrats — in 1948. Richard Russell Jr., a U.S. senator from Georgia, sought the Democratic nomination in 1948 and 1952. Williams recalled Russell holding a speak ing event at Memorial Stadium. Then there was Adlai Stevenson II, who won the Democratic nomination but lost to Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952 and 1956. Williams, a child at the time but still deeply interested in national affairs, shook hands with Stevenson when he spoke at Olustee Park. George Wallace, a presidential candidate from Alabama, spoke from the Columbia County Courthouse steps. Wallace, who sought the presidency as an American Independent Party candi date in 1968, also spoke at a campaign stop at Olustee Park. James Montgomery, a longtime educator and local historian, recalls that one as well. In those days, political rallies were much different in tone than today, he says. “They were much more personal,” he said. “If someone was coming, you had crowds. But it was like a family or church gathering. You knew who everyone was, and there was always some group there to feed you supper.” In more recent years, Alexander Haig, secretary of state under President Ronald Reagan, unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination in 1988. During his run, he spoke at a small gathering at the Lake City Airport. Jesse Jackson, who made two runs at the presidency, in 1984 and 1988, visited Lake City for a speaking engagement. He addressed an audience in the Lake City Community College gymnasium. “He was a dynamic speaker and wordsmith,” Morris Williams recalled. As for men who actually made it to the White House, that’s another story. However, two men who did later stopped right next door in White Springs, and on the same day, no less. Theodore Roosevelt and his successor and friend, William Howard Taft, checked into the Telford Hotel with a small entourage on June 27, 1913, just months after Taft left the White House. Rubio, a U.S. senator from the Sunshine State, is expected to draw more than 1,000 people on Monday. “It’s going to be packed,” said Kimi Roberts, a member of the North Florida Rural Initiative planning committee, which is hosting Rubio’s visit. “We’ve got a huge crowd coming from everywhere. It’s excitement for interested voters. We’ve never had this kind of event in Columbia County with this many people, it’s always been a din ner function — never this many people in a room for a speaking engagement.” Page Editor: Eleanor Ransburg, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2015 3A Dr. VuDo you suer from any of these common or other pain conditions?

The arrow doesn’t quite hit the mark, but Kiwanis event volunteer and archery supervisor John Kasak notes aptly that Benson still managed to get a bull’s-eye in the middle of the hay bale behind the target. Archery practice was just one of many activities available to children Saturday at the Kiwanis Kids Day event, hosted by Lake City’s Kiwanis Club and sponsored primarily by PotashCorp. White Springs. The event, which started at 9 a.m. and went to 4 p.m. at the Columbia County Rodeo Arena, might have been a mini-fair, featuring a putting contest, BB gun shoot, bounce houses and water slides, pony and oxen rides, and a Home Depot Kids Workshop where children could build their own toolboxes. “I told you I’m good at this,” said Scarlett Kohlhepp to her father, Danny, as she put the final touches on her small wooden toolbox. Her brother, Johnny, enthusiastically hammered a nail into his toolbox, all the while getting help and advice from Home Depot employee Gena Sleight. Danny Kohlhepp said he came to the event with his family in order to support the community and because it simply looked like fun. “Kiwanis Kids Day is kind of an event that replaces an event we were doing, called Big Boy Toys,” said Kiwanis Club President Jordan Wade. “We realized that we were having a lot of kids come and enjoy the things we had for kids and so we’re, like, if we really challenged ourselves to do an event focused on kids, we thought we could really reach out to the community more in that respect, because that’s what our focus as a club is. “To feed children is our No. 1 focus, and so we thought, what better way than to take care of the kids here and have fun and make some money to feed the ones who are needy.” Wade said one of the club’s primary aims was to keep prices relatively low. Food did not exceed $2, and admission prices were reasonable as well — $5 for children ages 3 to 16, with anyone over that age admitted free. Some costs of the event were covered by event sponsor PotashCorp. White Springs. Other expenses, such as those for bounce houses, were paid by Busy Bee. “Potash is a big supporter of Kiwanis, and they helped us out with Big Boy Toys expo, so we contacted them ... and because they’re community-oriented, they come together with our Kiwanis Club to support our event,” said Kiwanis board member Teena Peavey. An oddly large number of mascots dropped in for the event as well, entertaining kids despite the heat. Chick-fil-A’s cow mascot posed on a huge dirt pile with some youngsters, while Bellamy Beaver hovered outside his trailer. Publix’s Plato elephant mascot roamed the grounds with the Columbia High School Tiger, Texas Road House’s Andy Armadillo and TD Bank’s “T.D.” The BB gun shooting range, set up near the archery field, was among the more popular activities. Children also lined up for a trip down the water slides. “That’s their thing,” said Chris Santamarina, watching as his sons, Noah and Andres, slid down and splashed his wife, Marisol, and mother Carol with water. He said they were driving by when they noticed the Kiwanis volunteers setting things up. “It makes you more excited to live here for events like this,” Santamarina said.Community turns out for Kiwanis Kids Day ‘It makes you more excited to live here.’‘It’s going to be packed. We’ve got a huge crowd coming from everywhere. It’s excitement for interested voters. We’ve never had this kind of event in Columbia County with this many people, it’s always been a dinner function — never this many people in a room for a speaking engagement.’— Kimi Roberts of the North Florida Rural Initiative subdivision and Cypress Lake subdivision.

The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2016.

T he wave of telecommuni cations mergers continued this week as Verizon, the country’s most popular mobile phone network, agreed to buy AOL, the country’s most popular dial-up Internet service. OK, that was a cheap shot. Verizon isn’t forking over $4.4 billion because it wants AOL’s 2.2 million dial-up customers, as doggedly loyal as they seem to be. Instead, the prize for Verizon is AOL’s content businesses, most notably its advertising arm. In that sense, the deal falls into the same category as AT&T’s agreement to buy DirecTV and Comcast’s purchase of NBC/Universal. Such combinations of conduit and content have fallen in and out of favor over the years. The dial-up Internet market was dominated by AOL, which offered subscribers access to a “walled gar den” of exclusive content, but the company was overtaken by broad band service providers that offered little more than access to the wide-open Internet. Now ISPs have come full circle, and are eager to provide more than just a virtual pipe to someone else’s content. That’s one of the reasons so many content providers and applica tion developers urged the Federal Communications Commission to adopt strong net neutrality rules. Among other things, they feared that ISPs would give preferential treatment to their own sites and services, or to companies that paid for their traffic to be prioritized. The more broadband ISPs invest in content, the greater the incentive they’ll have to steer customers to that content, to the detriment of a free and open Internet. The FCC responded in February by adopting the most stringent rules yet against ISPs favoring some content and service provid ers over others. The rules have been roundly denounced by the major U.S. ISPs, including Verizon, AT&T and Comcast, whose trade associations asked a federal court Wednesday to put the new rules on hold pending an appeal. They’re also backing a bill that would set some basic net neutrality rules while barring the FCC from adopt ing broader ones. We believe that the FCC acted properly and that strong neutrali ty rules are necessary, but either the courts or Congress will have the final say on that. Meanwhile, Verizon’s purchase of AOL should remind policymakers of the time not so long ago when America Online connected customers to just that part of the Internet it controlled. Back then there were scores of other ISPs to choose from if users didn’t like AOL; today, there’s just a handful. But as long as the FCC’s neutrality rules remain in place, consumers will be free to steer their browsers wherever they choose.

This is such a busy time of year, what with graduations, weddings, reunions, school plays, concerts, finals and sports tournaments for 8-year-olds, but we have to take time to think about businesswoman Carly Fiorina, surgeon Ben Carson and preacher Mike Huckabee. They won’t become president but they might get into debates. Then we’ll have to listen to them explain why the fact that they are not from Washington and actually hate Washington makes them per fect to run (ruin?) the Washington bureaucracy. We’re not ready to listen to months of speculation about what Bill Clinton would do if Hillary gets elected. Continue hobnobbing with international poohbahs? Have an office in the East Wing? The West Wing? Serve in Hillary’s shadow cabinet? Run it? Stand in for her on speeches? Take over Michelle Obama’s role scolding us to eat more fruits and vegetables since he has lost weight and is now very health conscious? Make diplomatic trips on her behalf? Give her foot rubs? Finally receive the elusive Nobel Peace Prize that was handed to Al Gore and Barack Obama? All of the above? We’re not ready for endless bouts of advice for President Obama on how to burnish his legacy. With foreign leaders such as the Saudi king running away from U.S. diplomatic overtures and the Israeli government openly hostile, Obama is still desperate to get a nuclear deal with Iran, make a breakthrough in the turbulent Middle East, dismantle the Islamic State, expand trade, revamp the broken immigration system, restore the middle class, give hope to the poor, combat global climate change, prevent Obamacare from being dis mantled, get his presidential library funded and make certain his daugh ters get into great colleges. What he calls his bucket list. We’re not ready for regular rollouts of Texas angst. We’re still open-mouthed that some folks (thousands!) and even presidential candidates actually think U.S. mil itary war exercises in Southwest states, including Arizona and Texas, dubbed Jade Helm 15, are a sub versive effort to impose martial law. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the Texas state militia to monitor the eight-week, long-planned exercises. Sen. Ted Cruz, another Texas Republican who wants to be an anti-Washington president, is demanding explana tions from the Pentagon over spec ulation that Special Forces want to take over Texas. Even John McCain, R-Ariz., chair man of the Senate Armed Forces Committee and no fan of Obama, noting that military exercises have occurred in the Southwest for 200 years because of terrain similar to hot spots around the world, ridi culed the concerns as “bizarre.” Why would the military even care about seizing Texas? Most Americans spend almost no time thinking about Texas except for its unpredictable weather. Oh yes, for mer Gov. Rick (“oops”) Perry wants to be president. He’s the one who pondered having Texas secede from the union but even he said Texas is safe from the military. We’re not ready for a whole new late-night lineup, where we have to stay up past our bedtimes to see twenty-some GOP candidates and Hillary perform charades or lip sync with Jimmy Fallon, stum ble over the new pronunciation of Stephen Colbert’s name, try to ignore Chelsea Handler’s risque comments, banter with Jimmy Kimmel, wonder what Trevor Noah is talking about and pretend to laugh at Conan O’Brien’s jokes. (Late-night TV officially became as much a part of the presidential campaign process as the debates when, in 1992, Bill Clinton played a saxophone solo for late-night host Arsenio Hall.) Would that we could all just go to the beach and worry about global warming.Transparency needed at water districts The intrigue continues at Florida’s water management districts. Out of the blue, the St. Johns River district’s governing board said it was con sidering Ann Shortelle, executive director of the Suwannee River Water Management District, to head their agency. Then, at Thursday’s meeting of the SRWMD, that board appointed an interim director to steer the ship in Shortelle’s absence. Should she leave, that is. By now it’s obvious she is, of course, though how the governing board at St. Johns River decided to hire her without prior discussion — which would be out of the sunshine and therefore illegal — is somewhat puzzling. Not that it should be. Considering the shenanigans underway the past few weeks at St. Johns, all bets are off. We’ve seen a bureaucratic bloodbath in Putnam County of late, with the St. Johns River district’s executive director Hans Tanzler III and four top officials suddenly deciding to step down. As for why, the interim executive director said he didn’t think it “productive or neces sary” to say. No surprise there.We’ve lost faith in our water districts in recent years, especially in the wake of the St. Johns River district’s unseemly deal back in 2011 to give JEA 155 million gallons per day of our water. Yes, it was being piped out of northeastern Florida, but the aquifer wasn’t partitioned, last time we checked. What made the deal all the more repel lent was that our local district officials didn’t raise a finger to stop it. We’re tired of the cheap political games manship that seems to rule the day now at both water districts. Shortelle was a member of Gov. Rick Scott’s transition team, which certainly didn’t make her unqualified to lead the district, but did cause many to ask wheth er politics sometimes trumped science at SRWMD headquarters in Live Oak. We can’t wait to see who Mr. Scott installs as the new head of the Suwannee district. There’s plenty riding on his decision, and not all of it is political.

Contact Jordan Kroeger or Eric Jackson 754-0420 754-0421 jkroeger@lakecityreporter.com ejackson@lakecityreporter.com Gold glides past Purple By ERIC JACKSON ejackson@lakecityreporter.com Columbia’s first-team defense showed promise against the Tigers’ uptem po offense. But the inexperienced group also confirmed there’s plenty room for improvement as the Gold team cruised to a 42-0 victory at Tiger Stadium Friday night. The Purple team’s offense failed to record one success ful drive as the Gold team’s defense was relentless from start to finish. On the other side, Gold team quarterback Davin Schuck was efficient against the firstteam defense, completing 14 of 26, recording 259 passing yards and four touchdowns. Schuck and his freshmen offensive line committed some hiccups Friday night but remained collected and focused. “We’ve only had two weeks of practice so you expect to have mistakes,” Tigers head coach Brian Allen said. “We got to clean up the turn over part of it, and we will. If we eliminate turnovers, continue to improve through summer, we’re going to have a good football team.” Schuck gained a chunk of yardage with his feet but mostly through the air — constantly connecting with his trusted wide-outs. The Gold team got on the scoreboard when Schuck found rising senior Latrell Williams for a 26yard touchdown toward the end of the first quarter. Five minutes into the sec ond quarter, the Purple team made a convincing drive into Gold territory until Tigers’ offense no match for defense Friday. TIGERS continued on 3B JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Running back K.T. Timmons sheds a tackle during the Purple and Gold game Friday night. Associated Press GAINESVILLE — Former Vanderbilt quar terback/receiver Josh Grady has landed at Florida. The Gators announced Friday that Grady has enrolled in classes and will be eligible to play this fall. Grady graduated from Vanderbilt last week, and the Southeastern Conference approved his transfer. Grady could play receiver or provide quarterback depth for the Gators, who are down to just two scholarship signal call ers following Skyler Mornhinweg’s recent transfer. The 6-foot, 200-pound senior from Tampa, Grady played receiver and quar terback at Vanderbilt but didn’t see much action at either spot. He completed 3 of 7 passes for 27 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. He also caught seven passes for 89 yards, and ran 11 times for 20 yards. Vanderbilt quarterback Josh Grady joins Gators Indians awarded at banquet By ERIC JACKSON ejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Jokes were told, pasta was devoured and tears were shed. From sponsors to par ents, everyone was recog nized during Fort White baseball’s banquet Saturday night. The emotional peak of the night was during senior speeches, where eight Indians said farewell to their biggest supporters. Willie Carter, who unsur prisingly received the Golden Bat award, thanked his teammates for treating him like a brother since he arrived from Lake City in the eighth grade. Ace Rhett Willis, during his speech, threw one last pitch to his catcher Trace Wilkinson. Willis and senior Austin Dupree received the Golden Arm award after compiling together an 1.2 ERA this season. Carter, Willis, Wilkinson and Dupree honored.

Shannon Showers suffers broken leg By JORDAN KROEGER jkroeger@lakecityreporter.com FORT WHITE — Thursday’s Red and Black game was supposed to bring good news to Fort White head football coach Demetric Jackson for the upcoming season. Instead, it brought terrible news one day later. Jackson confirmed Friday that wide receiver/ cornerback/punt returner Shannon Showers suffered a broken leg during the game and will miss at least three months of action, pos sibly up to five. Showers had to be helped off the field Thursday after he was tackled on a run out of the backfield and was later seen on the side line on crutches.

After each and every player scarfed down a catered dinner featuring some good old fashion barbeque, the varsity and junior varsity players were honored for their achieve ments on the field and in the classroom this past season. Kaleb Thomas took home the most hardware as he was given the Silver Slugger Award, Academic Award and Florida High School Coach’s Association Award. The silver slugger led Columbia’s offense this season with a batting aver age of .351 and finished second on the team with 11 RBI. Head coach Heath Phillips said Thomas was the most consistent hitter on his ball club from the very first game of the sea son. “The sky is the limit, the boy can hit a baseball,” Phillips said. “I know he’s going to work hard this summer. He’s going to be hitting at the top of the lineup for a summer ball team and I’m look ing to get big things out of him next season. He’s going to be the top guy on the totem pole that guys wanna chop down so he’s really gotta work hard this summer and really get after the weight room in the fall.” Columbia was car ried by a pitching staff this season that featured CHS continued on 2B SHOWERS cont. on 3B Indians’ standout may need surgery after injured leg.

SCOREBOARD 2B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2015 Tyler Myrick, Nic Tyre and Harrison Shubert but it was Myrick who took home the Pitcher of the Year Award after finishing the year with a ERA of 0.67 and a 3-1 record. Myrick pitched every game in the district tournament and shutdown Oakleaf in a 5-1 victory in the district championship. All three pitchers return next year as seniors and Phillips couldn’t be more excited. “Them are three kids that are fantastic,” Phillips said. “You never gotta worry about them getting in trouble away from school or at school and they just happen to be three pretty darn good pitchers too and we’re excited.” Other varsity awards given out included the Golden Glove Award, given to first baseman Jordan Culp, and the Tiger Award, given to James Shimmell. Alex Mitchell, Witt Register, Steven Rendel, T.J. Price, Jake Bates, Brock Edge and Thomas were also given Academic Awards for having GPAs 3.5 or higher. Multiple varsity players were given letters and bars but Phillips did something out of the ordinary to begin the night. Phillips gave every junior varsity player letters to honor their two victories over Middleburg and Hamilton County while filling in for the varsity team after it was suspended for its brawl with Suwannee in the middle of the season. “I’m proud to do it, the coaches are proud to do it,” Phillips told the audience. “These kids earned it. They came into a tough situation and pulled off two W’s.” Caleb Strickland was given the Silver Slugger Award on the junior var-sity squad while Garrett Finnell was handed the Pitching Award. Chase Cervantes won the Golden Glove award and Jacob Garnier got the Tiger Award. Clayton Steinruck, B.J. Wheeler, Cole Frier, Hunter Houston and Strickland were given Academic Awards for having GPAs of 3.5 or higher. The night was a bittersweet ending to a year that ended in heartbreak in the regional semifinals for the Tigers. “It’s good and it’s bad, in my eyes we should be play-ing right now about five hours away [in the state semifinals] but it is what it is,” Phillips said. “It’s a good time for the families to come out and see their sons get some awards and everybody get together one last time before the summer kicks off.” CHS Continued From Page 1B JORDAN KROEGER/ Lake City ReporterColumbia junior varsity baseball team awards: Garrett Fin nell (from left), Pitching Award; Chase Cervates, Golden Glove Award; Caleb Strickland, Si lver Slugger Award; Jacob Garnier, Tiger Award.

Not pictured: Hunter Houston. Wilkinson, who was awarded both the Academic Award and Golden Glove, took a moment to remind the underclassmen. “When you put on that Fort White jersey, remem-ber it means a lot more than the number behind it,” Wilkinson said. Corey Pentolino told the fellow seniors that he’ll always have their backs while Cody Gibbons embarrassed them one last time. Fort White head coach Rick Julius reminisced, with the gymnasium full of family and friends, on the seniors’ greatest on-field accomplishments from winning last year’s district title to sweeping Columbia this season. Following the banquet’s dinner, junior varsity head coach Kevin Dupree spoke and congratulated his players on a successful season before handing out certificates. Coach Julius afterwards took the podium to do the same for his squad then gave away personal gifts for each of the graduating players. Before giving out the four special awards (aca-demic award, golden bat, golden glove and golden arm), Julius thanked his assistant coaches, wife, board members and school administration for their constant support. “Without these people, our program would be non-existent,” Julius added. After eight senior speeches, Julius closed out the banquet with one final thank you for the seniors’ parents, who received a standing ovation.One of the best seasons in Fort White history ended just the way it should.TV LISTINGS Today AUTO RACING 1 p.m. ABC — IndyCar, qualifying for Indianapolis 500 (day 2) 2 p.m. FS1 — NASCAR, XFINITY Series, May Iowa race, at Newton, Iowa 9 p.m. ESPN2 — NHRA, Southern Nationals, at Commerce, Ga.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2015 3B kind of knew where he was going to be when he’s starting to scramble, but Showers was a two-way starter and a punt return-er for us so we’re going to miss him on special teams and on offense and defense.” The sophomore and soon-to-be junior will meet with a specialist soon to determine if he needs to have surgery, which would extend the timetable of his recovery. Jackson says Showers will miss all of summer practice but hopes to have him back by the middle of the season at the latest. In the meantime, Jackson will have to find a replace-ment for Showers at three different positions. He says Showers’s absence on the defensive side of the ball could leave a huge hole on the team as he could also play some safety. “Our biggest drop off is probably going to be at defensive back because of the things he did and how he helped us on the defensive side of the ball,” Jackson said. Leadarius Mims and Nick McClain were already battling it out for the other starting cornerback posi-tion and will likely be the two starters on the outside of the Indians’ defense going forward. Offensively, the relationship between D.J. Jackson and his receiv-ers was already a work in progress this spring and Showers’s injury just makes that project more difficult. Showers was Fort White’s leading receiver a season ago with 22 catches for 170 yards and a touchdown. Demetric Jackson remains optimistic, how-ever, and sees a couple of guys who could step up in Showers’s absence. “It’s kind of one of those deals where you kind of go by committee,” Jackson said. “We have different guys who can step up. Nick McClain can also play some receiver but we also have a kid named Owen Martin who can also step up and be a receiver.” Luckily for Jackson and the rest of the Indians, they have plenty of time to fig-ure it all out.

Matthews’s pass was inter-cepted by freshman defen-sive back Andrew Heaton. Quickly Schuck and company turned the turnover into points. Less than two minutes later Schuck zipped a pass to Mike Williams who took it all the way for a 36-yard touchdown. Midway through the second quarter the Gold team led 14-0. Three minutes after halftime, after Schuck fumbled in red-zone, the Gold team recovered but were forced to a field goal attempt. Freshman kicker Riley Robbins, from roughly 20 yards out, had his attempt blocked by playmaker Roger Cray. With less than five minutes remaining in the third, the Gold team restarted near their own goal-line. That’s when sophomore running back Kamario Bell found space through the middle and went untouched for a 90-yard touchdown. The Gold team took a 210 lead going into the fourth quarter. The Purple team’s problems against the Gold team’s speed continued on as rising senior running back Daylon Sheppard went the distance himself eight minutes after Bell. 47 of Sheppard’s 69 total yards came when he went the distance to put the Gold team up 28-0 with 11 min-utes left in the game. Minutes later Columbia fans got a glimpse of Latrell Williams’s 4.3 speed. After Schuck found him near the edge, Williams caught the pass and dashed up the side-line with Purple team defend-ers left in his tracks. “He’s a true track guy,” Allen said. The 70-yard touchdown reception capitalized on an entertaining performance from the Tigers’ rapid-fire option Friday night. “We got to straighten out some things on defense,” Cray said. “We need to play the snap better against the offense.” Regulation ended eight minutes later, but the game wouldn’t officially finished until the Gold team’s final drive was complete. With the game clock off, Schuck and the offense marched downfield one last time for a 56-yard drive that ended with K.T. Timmons catching a slant pass for a 16-yard touch-down. “We got to clean up our miscues on defense,” Allen added. “The encouraging thing is that these kids are two weeks in and came out performed the way they did. We’re looking forward to our final assessment against Duval Charter.” TIGERS Continued From Page 1B JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterQuarterback Davin Schuck throws pass in Friday’s Purpl e and Gold game.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2015 I started my Captain Buzz Brannon Facial Hair Challenge article 2 weeks ago talking about how Florida Gateway College enabled me the opportunity to fish and hunt. It’s only fair to give a proper farewell to our lead er of the past 18 years, Dr. Charles Hall. I’ll sum up my experience with Dr. Hall we started at LCCC at the exact time in 1997 in one quote from the great Maya Angelou. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” I’ll never forget how he treated not just me, but also our entire campus with grace, sincerity, wisdom, and pure class. I aspire to make others feel the way he’s made me (and many others) feel the past five years. Speaking of a fellow LCCC Alumni, Captain Buzz quickly shook off the shock from my arrival with shaving cream and a razor. We boarded, and he drove us in a direc tion where they had recently caught some nice redfish and trout...on topwater lures! If you get one thing from my articles about the most fun way to fish in my opin ion it’s catching fish on topwater. It’s visual, exciting, and you tend to catch big ger fish. We fished around an island, drifting the shore line and casting as close to the shore as possible. After about 30 minutes, we moved without a sniff. Buzz next drove us under the Dames Point Bridge near my old stomping/fish ing grounds at Jacksonville University. We tried the same pattern with the tide starting to move, and the conditions looked right, but not a sniff again. We weren’t worried as we had absolute perfect Chamber of Commerce weather that would have made our very own Lake City/Columbia County Chamber Executive Director, Dennille Decker, extremely jealous. It was 78-degrees with full sun, no wind, zero humidity, and no chance of rain. I’d tell you what direc tion we headed next, but I was so turned around that I didn’t know South from North, East from West, or up from down. But, Buzz did. He made his way back into a maze of creeks that all looked the same to me. It’s like he knew every sin gle oyster bar, mud flat, and blade of grass as he poled us around. We worked some “fishy” areas with different lures and shrimp, and we couldn’t buy a taker. After a few more creeks, we decided to exit the maze, hit the main water, and move completely. Later, Buzz would admit that as we made this move near lunchtime he was get ting a tad nervous. I unfairly put pressure on him to catch six quality redfish, especially given the fact we had never met, but I could tell he was going to make this mission happen. He’s the kind of guide who doesn’t stare at the clock; he throws away the clock. We pushed through the mouth of a creek off the main channel, turned a corner, and there was a massive school of reds. Several hundred. Jackpot! Now, we had to figure out our game plan because they were hungry and feeding, and we ultimately were between them and the exit of the creek. Buzz went into stealth mode on his poling platform and pushed us into the perfect position. We set up camp and waited. Here’s where a guide knows better than the average fisherman. Most would have been tempted to cast right in the middle, and probably catch one, or maybe two. We didn’t do that. In fact, we stopped sev eral hundred yards from the school and casted well short of the school so we didn’t spook them. Like clockwork, they started milling in our bait’s direction none the wiser to three eager anglers on the other end of the line. Within minutes, Jonathan had a whistling drag. Fish on! It was a gorgeous slot redfish and the first of several. We kept up this pattern, taking turns, leading the fish, and waiting. Next up was Buzz with another slot redfish. Then, it was my turn, and I lucked into the biggest fish of the day a 28” solid redfish pushing nine-pounds. We ended up with the exact number of redfish I hoped for six. Captain Buzz had come through to his end of the deal, so it was my turn next. Out came the shaving cream, and the razor. One by one, I trimmed off parts of my face mane, and my bare face slowly appeared. For each fish, a new style emerged. First fish received the full mountain man beard photo treatment, and then it went downhill quickly. Next fish up, goofy goatee and lamb chop combination ala a 1960’s rock band made an appearance. Next, stan dard goatee and sideburns that a current CHS coach (or three) may sport. Then the horseshoe mustache in honor of Hulk Hogan (minus the blonde dye). Next, the 80’s Nascar driver or Tom Selleck circa Magnum P.I. moustache. Lastly, the choir boy aka baby face aka cleanshaven ultimately appeared. Six quality redfish, six different facial hair combi nations, and one awesome guide made for a truly one of a kind fishing trip! COURTESY Rob with a collage of the facial hair styles.

OUTDOORS 360 Rob Chapman rob@outdoors360.com T hrough the years Cheek and Scott Drugs has remained a constant feature in our community. From their humble beginnings to their prominent present, Cheek and Scott Drugs has been a family friendly, community focused business. Je Scott current president of Cheek and Scott Drugs has continued in the same traditions of his father and others before him by striving to provide complete and quality healthcare to the people of North Central Florida. Cheek and Scott’s community roots run deep. The rst store was estab lished in 1903 by Renzo Carver, Je Scott’s great uncle, and was called Carver Drugs. In 1956, Tom Cheek purchased the drug store from Renzo Carver and the store name at that time was changed from Carver’s Drugs to Cheek Drug. In 1965, Allison Scott, Je’s father, returned to Live Oak to become a business partner in the pharmacy operation with Tom Cheek. A corporation in the name of Cheek and Scott Drugs, Inc. was established. The partnership started with the downtown location and expanded to a second location in the Live Oak plaza in 1966. Cheek & Scott Home Medical Equipment Division was formed in 1983 to provide customers with a complete healthcare center. The downtown store closed in 1995 and moved to South Oaks Plaza. In 2000 Je Scott, purchased the company from his father and became the company’s president. In 2001, a second home medical equipment location was added in Lake City and became a full Pharmacy in 2009 to serve the Lake City area. Je Scott began working in the pharmacy operation at an early age of twelve as a janitor and handyman. As a quick learner who grew up in the pharmacy, Je contributed his talents as a medical equipment technician and as home equipment set up person, pharmacy technician, and eventually phar macist. After receiving his pharmacy license he spent several years working in the business joining the company as a partner and eventually purchasing the company in 2000. The tradition of serving the community has been passed on to the next generation of the Scott family and all of Je’s children have worked in dierent areas of the company. The company has grown from nine employees in 1965 to a company of more than forty employees today. Some of the major milestones the Cheek and Scott family has seen over the years are computerization, expansion into medical equipment, respiratory and oxygen equipment, IV therapy, specialty pharmacy and other innovative areas. Cheek and Scott has managed to maintain their personal touch and hands on involvement with their customers while incorporating some of the latest pharmacy technology. Cheek and Scott uses high-tech robotics to ll prescrip tions quickly and with greater accuracy. This technology provides an additional layer of quality control to the scrupulous personal touch provided by Cheek and Scott’s pharmacists and technicians. They now also oer an online rell option and allow their customers the option of receiving text messages when prescription orders are ready to be picked up. In the last few years, Cheek and Scott began oering immunization services. With a growing need for this service in the future, Cheek and Scott is striving to stay on top of helping the community in this manner. They also hope to expand to include travel immunizations in the near future. The newest innovation on Cheek and Scott’s horizon is a new program they hope to initiate in the next few months called Right on Time. This program will allow customers the option of syncing their medications so they will all be lled on the same day to save the customer several trips in one month. They also provide disease management counseling through medication therapy systems. Specialty Pharmacy is also a new branch of services Cheek and Scott is working hard to provide for customers in our area. Specialty pharmacy presently includes Hepatitis, crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and more. Cheek and Scott is now accredited by ACHC in medical equipment and hope to soon be accredited in Specialty Pharmacy. Since their beginning Cheek and Scott has shown an exceptional commitment to serving the community and will continue in the future. Today they provide donations to worthy charitable organizations that meet their cor porate philanthropic objectives and are often the host to various fundraising events. They provide free vitamins for children and seniors and they work with LOVE Inc. and other local nonprots to help the needy in the community. Today’s healthcare landscape is complex and problematic, at best. Cheek and Scott is committed to navigating this dicult, everchanging landscape in order to better serve their customers. Cheek and Scott’s president, Je Scott, feels the company learns and grows from the challenges they encounter and he expresses a desire to help alleviate part of the confusion and frustration customers experience, saying “I’m so thankful for the great people I’m blessed to work with and for the community giving us a chance to take care of their pharmacy and medical equipment needs. As challenges continue, I thank God everyday for His giving our company successes through the years and I look forward to the future.” Celebrates 50 Years of Service

Really warm weather. So much warm weather you don’t know what to do with it, and, for us at Florida Gateway College, the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. At the college, June 30 is our New Year’s Eve, though our festive fireworks are annually delayed a few days. July 1 is the start of something new. But this summer will be a little different for us, though. This is the first summer in 18 years that we will be starting a new year without our leader, Dr. Charles Hall. Though Hall is FGC’s third president, there are few who will argue that his leadership has had the greatest impact on the college. In the past 18 years, FGC has experienced extreme growth through facility renovations, new construction, new site development and new program development. Just to put things in perspective, nearly 14,000 students have earned degrees and certificates during Hall’s tenure. That means, at the very least, 14,000 students have been affected by his leadership. That number, in truth, is significantly higher. The size of the college campus has grown from 100 acres to 182 acres. The number of scholarships through The Foundation for Florida Gateway College has flourished, and the Foundation’s endowment has increased from $2.5 million to $13.7 million. In fact, Hall and his wife, Robin, have personally endowed four scholarships that will help students afford their tuition for years to come. HALL continued on 4C FGC president relinquishes the reins this year. Tubers enjoy the cool waters of the Ichetucknee River in this photo taken last spring.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MAY 1723, 2015 Name That Company Know the answer? Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! share into 288 today. If there had been no splits, the stock, which recently traded at $49 per share, would be priced around $14,000 per share. It’s rare for investors to be shut out of a stock because of a steep price, though. Even with a $400 stock, shallow-pocketed investors can just buy one or two shares. There are even “reverse splits,” which reduce the total number of shares while boosting the share price. But beware of reverse stock splits, because companies can use them to create a (false) sense of higher value and sometimes to avoid getting delisted from a stock exchange. Many well-known companies, such as American International Group, Citigroup and Priceline, have executed reverse splits, though it’s typically smaller companies that do so. While a split can make a stock’s price more psychologically inviting and does technically make it cheaper, it doesn’t make it a sudden bargain. A stock selling at more than $100 per share might seem expensive, but it can be a much better value than many $10 stocks. Stock prices only matter when you compare them to other numbers, such as earnings or revenue.Banking on Wells FargoThere’s a lot to like about Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC), one of America’s largest banks. For example, consider its strong growth and returns for shareholders over the past few decades, and its marketleading mortgage and auto lending businesses. (Its stock has averaged annual returns of more than 17 percent over the past 30 years!) Instead of relying heavily on areas such as trading and investment banking, Wells Fargo focuses on community banking, via loaning money (through mortgages, auto loans, credit cards, etc.) and other relatively straightforward and low-risk operations such as insurance and retail brokerage. Thus, its revenue tends to be more stable than that of its peers. Wells Fargo has been on a mission to become its customers’ only bank as it cross-sells its products. Its average banking household has more than six separate products with the bank, and Wells Fargo is aiming for eight. Over the past year, Wells Fargo has increased the percentage of its customers with a Wells-issued credit card from 38 percent to nearly 42 percent. Wells Fargo’s management is focused on expense control, productivity and mitigating risk. It’s highly profitable, and it cruised through the financial crisis arguably better than any other institution in the western world. It also offers investors a dividend that recently yielded 2.6 percent. Wells Fargo’s easy-to-understand services will always be in demand, and it deserves investment consideration. The M otl ey Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich A Bad SpreadMy dumbest investment taught me the value of investigation before buying shares of a company. My co-worker had been watching the meteoric rise of a penny stock. I got caught up in his enthusiasm, sold my shares of a perfectly good mutual fund, and placed a market order to buy 500 shares of the penny stock. The shares were purchased at a lofty price of $4.25, which the stock never saw again. It was recently trading for less than a dollar per share. This was a $2,000 crash course — T.H., Merchantville, New Jersey The Fool Responds: Ouch. Penny stocks are dangerous in many ways. They are often tied to companies without proven revenue and earnings, and they’re easily manipulated. Also, they can have wide “spreads” — the difference between the latest price you can buy at (the “ask”) and the price you can sell for (the “bid”). If the spread is very wide, the stock will have to rise significantly just for you to be able to sell and break even. Penny stocks are almost always to be avoided. It’s much better to stick with established and growing companies.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Run, Rate, Run!QWhat’s a “run rate”? — B.G., Slidell, LouisianaAIt’s a way to get a more realistic view of a company’s performance. Imagine that Carrier Pigeon Communications (ticker: SQUAWK) is growing very rapidly. If you want to estimate its current annual level of sales, you could add up the last four quarters’ worth, but that would clearly understate sales, as each quarter’s numbers have been rising. So instead, take the most recent quarter’s sales of $30 million (up from $24 million the quarter before and $19 million before that). Multiply that by four, and you’ll have the company’s current run rate for sales: $120 million. It’s not a forecast or a measure of past sales; it’s a reflection of the current level of annual sales. ***QShould I pass on a company if it’s reporting increased losses per share instead of increased profits? — J.L., Norton Shores, MichiganANot necessarily. Companies sometimes spend a lot more in one year than another. Imagine Home Surgery Kits, Inc. (ticker: OUCHH), a young company. Let’s say it lost about $40 million in 2013 and $60 million in 2014, though its revenues nearly doubled during the same period. Some investors see numbers like this and run the other way, preferring to invest only in companies reporting steadily increasing profits. That’s reasonable. But those willing to take on more risk may still consider buying, if other factors are compelling. For example, if you have great faith in the future of home surgery kits, you might see the company needing to plow available money into advertising and growing the business. You might reason that the time for profits is later, once the company has amassed a huge customer base.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in — see Write to Us Splitting SharesMany investors get excited about stock splits, but splits aren’t as meaningful as they seem. For example, imagine shares of Buzzy’s Broccoli Beer (ticker: BRRRP), trading around $60 each. If you own 100 shares, they’re worth $6,000. Let’s say Buzzy’s splits its stock 2-for-1. For each share that you own, you’ll get another, so you end up with 200 shares. You didn’t get any richer, though, because while your share count increases, the value of each share decreases proportionately. After the split, the shares will trade around $30 each. The total value of your shares? Still $6,000. Splits can take many forms: 2-for1, 3-for-2 and so on. One reason shares get split is to keep prices low enough for individual investors. If Apple had never executed its four stock splits, its shares would trade for more than $7,000 apiece instead of a recent $128. Microsoft, meanwhile, has undergone nine splits, turning one original 2015 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

COURTESYHaven Hospice Corporate Advisory Board members Eric Godet (from left) and Suzanne Norris, U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, and Haven Hospice Interim President Jim Poole are pictured during the Haven Hospice leadership team’s recent visit to Washington, D.C. Local leaders visit with Rep. YohoFrom staff reportsA leadership team from Haven Hospice recently met with U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, to discuss policies regarding endof-life and palliative care. Haven Hospice has been providing quality and comprehensive hospice programs and services to patients and families in North Florida for over 36 years. The leadership team that represented Haven Hospice in Washington, D.C., included Lake City resident and Haven Hospice Interim President Jim Poole, along with Suzanne Norris and Eric Godet, two members of the hospice’s Corporate Advisory Board. Norris is regional vice president at TD Bank in Lake City, and Godet is the CEO and president of Godet Industries International in Gainesville. The hospice’s leadership team was in Washington to attend the 30th management and leadership conference of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the 11th annual National Hospice Foundation Gala.

Gulf oil spill could last 100 yearsThe Associated PressWASHINGTON — A decade-old oil leak where an offshore platform toppled during a hurricane could continue spilling crude into the Gulf of Mexico for a century or more if left unchecked, according to government estimates obtained by The Associated Press that provide new details about the scope of the problem. Taylor Energy Company, which owned the platform and a cluster of oil wells, has played down the extent and environmental impact of the leak. The company also maintains that nothing can be done to completely eliminate the chronic oil slicks that often stretch for miles off the coast of Louisiana. Taylor has tried to broker a deal with the government to resolve its financial obligations for the leak, but authorities have rebuffed those overtures and have ordered additional work by the company, according to Justice Department officials who were not authorized to comment publicly by name and spoke only on condition of anonymity. “There is still more that can be done by Taylor to control and contain the oil that is discharging” from the site, says an Interior Department fact sheet obtained by AP. Federal regulators suspect oil is still leaking from at least one of 25 wells that remain buried under mounds of sediment from an underwater mudslide triggered by waves whipped up by Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

manager. “I’m looking toward having a busy sum mer.” With the approaching summer months, Ogburn said she expects park visi tors to capitalize on river tub ing activities as well as other park sponsored events. “We’ll also have ranger programs throughout the summer and we’re looking to have a lot more family-type gatherings,” she said. “We also looking at the number of people calling and asking about weddings.” With the Memorial Day holiday weekend approach ing, Ogburn said she expects plenty of visitors. “For Memorial Day weekend, providing that the weather cooperates, we look to hit capacity early in the day, and we look to top out on our capacity throughout the whole weekend,” she said. With a successful March, in respect to attendance numbers, park officials are optimistic about the park’s economic impact throughout the remainder of the summer. “We look to be where we were last year, which was maxed out most every weekend, and we don’t look to see it being any dif ferent, so we’re anticipat ing a really good summer — it’s Florida — weather depending,” Ogburn said. Increased attendance at the park will not automati cally translate into a bigger budget for the park and its staff. Ogburn said none of the state parks have a specific profit margin that’s expect ed to be reached annually, and all the money that comes into state parks is placed into the state’s general revenue fund and becomes part of state funding. Ichetucknee Springs State Park is open 365 days a year from 8 a.m. to sundown. We’ve launched numerous programs under his watchful eye, including our first three baccalaureate programs beginning in 2012. These are the first four-year programs in the history of the college and will allow us to situate ourselves in a position of leadership and growth for the future. I could write a lot more – I haven’t even touched on college accolades! – but I think you get the gist by now. And while it’s true that he didn’t build these programs from the ground up with his own hand, a business/organization/col-lege is only as good as its leader and the people he surrounds himself with. Despite all of the achievements, accolades and success stories, I think the one thing that stands out to me the most – and the thing I will likely miss the most – is more of a personality thing. It’s the way he treats people. Have you ever seen him introduce himself to someone new in the community? I have, and he doesn’t do it like you’d expect. There is no emphasis on the title “Dr.” and no emphasis on the word “president.” And he doesn’t show off the over sized FGC logo medallion that he wears during our graduation ceremonies. That’s because he doesn’t introduce himself as “Dr. Charles Hall.” He doesn’t introduce himself as “President Charles Hall.” And, unfortunately, he doesn’t wear that medallion around in public, though I do think the Flavor Flav look would suit him well. He just introduces him self as “Chuck.” I’ve even overheard him tell some one that he “works out at the college.” I think that says some thing about a person. He’s always talkative when you meet him, seem ingly curious about what’s going on in your life. If you passed him in the grocery store and met up with him on every aisle – and you’ve all experienced that before, I’m sure – he’d still come up with something to say after the 10th time and the 11th time you passed him. Most of us would just either do the casual head nod – which is what I do – or just ignore the person/skip an aisle. And I think that’s what makes him who he is, and one of the reasons he has been the right president for FGC for almost two decades. It’s his ability to connect with people, to be positive and compli mentary, reassuring and accepting when people make mistakes. It’s the reason why I’m glad he’s allowed me to serve in this capacity the past five years. So, thank you, Dr. Hall, for your service to the college these past 18 years and mak ing work feel like a home. While I have no doubt your successor, Dr. Barrett, will be a worthy heir and help lead the college for years to come, you will be missed. Enjoy retirement. You deserve it! 4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MAY 1723, 2015Self-driving Google car heading to streets By DEE-ANN DURBINAP Auto WriterMOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — The latest version of Google’s self-driving car — a podlike two-seater that needs no gas pedal or steering wheel — will make its debut on public roads this summer, a significant step in the technology giant’s mis sion to have driverless cars available to consumers in the next five years. This prototype is the first vehi cle built from scratch for the purpose of self-driving, Google says. It looks like a Smart car with a shiny black bowler hat to hide its sensors, and it can drive, brake and recognize road haz ards without human intervention. It has more capabilities than the prototype Google introduced last May, which was so rudimentary it had fake headlights. The new pod isn’t designed for a long trip, or a joyride. It lacks air bags and other federal ly required safety features, so it can’t go more than 25 miles per hour. It’s electric, and has to be recharged after 80 miles. And the pod can only drive in areas that have been thoroughly mapped by Google. At first, it will likely even have a steering wheel and gas pedal — current California regulations require them. Those regulations also require a driver to be able to take back control of the car at any time. But Google is lobbying for more flexible regulations. Google will initially build and test 25 pods, mostly in neighbor hoods surrounding its Mountain View headquarters. It will even tually build between 50 and 100, and will broaden testing to sites that are hillier and rainier. The ultimate goal, says Google co-founder Sergey Brin, is com puter-controlled cars that can eliminate human error, which is a factor in an estimated 90 percent of the 1.2 million road deaths that occur worldwide each year. Self-driving cars could also improve traffic congestion and transport the elderly and disabled. Google shocked the auto indus try in 2010 with its announce ment that it was working on a driverless car. Brin insists Google doesn’t aspire to be a car compa ny, but wants its technology to be adopted by automakers. “We want to partner to bring self-driving to all the vehicles in the world,” Brin told a group of journalists and community mem bers gathered earlier this week to take rides in the prototype. For now the traditional auto makers are pursuing their own self-driving technology, but with less ambitious timeline of 10 to 15 years for a truly driverless car. Chris Urmson, who directs Google’s self-driving car project, says the slow-moving, friendly looking prototype — his young son thinks it looks like a koala because of the nose-like black laser on the front — is a good bridge between the company’s current test fleet of 20 specially outfitted Lexus SUVs and the more advanced, higher-speed driverless cars of its future, which might not even look like anything on the road today. “This vehicle is really all about us learning. This vehicle could go on a freeway, but when we think about introducing the tech nology, we want to do that very thoughtfully and very safely,” Urmson says. Convincing drivers that driv erless technology is safe is one of the hurdles the company must overcome. Earlier this week, in response to questions from The Associated Press, Google acknowledged 11 minor acci dents in the six years it has been testing autonomous cars. Urmson says the company is proud of that record, and notes that Google’s vehicles have com pleted more than 1.7 million miles of testing. He says all but one of the accidents were caused by drivers in other cars; in the only incident caused by a Google car, a staffer was driving in man ual mode. Consumers question whether they can trust self-driving cars to work all the time, who will be lia ble if there’s an accident and how self-driving cars will interact with regular cars, says the consulting firm J.D. Power and Associates. In a 2013 survey of U.S. drivers, J.D. Power found only one in five was interested in a fully autono mous car. Urmson says Google needs to do a better job of educating peo ple about self-driving technology and updating them on Google’s progress. It’s building a Web site to teach people about the tech nology, and the site will feature a monthly report that will include details of any accidents involving Google cars. The site will also have a section where people can send feedback when they interact with the cars. The prototype cars — assem bled in suburban Detroit by Roush Industries — have the same array of radars, lasers and cameras as Google’s fleet of Lexus SUVs, which allows them to share data. Latest version, a podlike two-seater, is five years away.

I Am Lake City means I am invested in my friends and neighbors. I am a part of what makes our commu nity thrive and prosper. This is why the Chamber spearheaded the “I Am Lake City” marketing campaign. It was created to serve as an awareness movement to remind our residents that local businesses are the backbone of our com munity! Additionally, it is a way that our members can increase their expo sure and tell us why they are Lake City! The first 10 businesses that will be highlighted in all of our Chamber member media outlets are: Foreman, McInnis and Associates, P.A., Fyzical Therapy and Balance Center, LakeCity4sale.com, Lake City Medical Center, Mederi Caretenders, Olympic Health Chiropractic, Peoples State Bank, Raymond James, Southern Exposure Salon and Boutique, and Touchstone Heating and Air. Be on the lookout for printed advertisements, radio commercials, and check our website and Facebook page for the weekly spotlight. If you have children or were ever a student, then you have probably solicit ed funds from many local businesses to support your child’s sports team, chorus, youth group, band or other fundraising effort. We never hesitate to ask for donations from our local business owners, yet when it comes time for us to reciprocate, we go online to save a few dollars? We must support those who support us! It takes you to start the trend. Often, we are tempted by the lure of lower pric es on the internet. We want to save money on the items we need and we automatically assume going online will be less expensive. In some instances it might be. However, have you con sidered that this online business isn’t paying local taxes and support ing our local economy? They aren’t providing our friends and neighbors with jobs. They are not volunteering their time nor putting money back into our community to make it a better place to live and work. They aren’t members of your local Chamber of Commerce. They aren’t doing life here. The Lake City – Columbia County Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping our members and community prosper. We encourage any local business who is not a member to join our Chamber and help us con tinue to be the advocate for our community. We are all Lake City!

The 15th annu al Suwannee River Partnership recognition dinner was held at the UF/IFAS Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center. The following farmers were honored for caring for the environment: Herbert Marlowe and Vernon Vinzant of Alachua County. Doug Green, A.B. and Terry Whitehead of Bradford County. Thomas Bryant of Columbia County. Larry and McCoy Hilliard of Gilchrist County. Wilbur Dean and Jeff Starnes of Levy County. Mark Chaples, J.P. Cobb, Kenny Mize, Scott Randell and Tommy Taylor of Suwannee County. Delbert Smith of Union County. Farm owners who have implemented best man agement practices that have been inspected and certified by state officials are awarded the CARES distinction and an identi fying CARES sign to post on their properties, which recognizes them for their commitment as environ mental stewards. “Our agricultural pro ducers are true stewards of the land and the promise of a bright future as we continue to grow and move agriculture into the future,” said Kevin Morgan, assis tant to the president at Florida Farm Bureau. The CARES pro gram was created by Florida Farm Bureau and the Suwannee River Partnership in 2001. ‘We’re looking to have a lot more family-type gatherings.’ — Mebane Cory-Ogburn, Ichetucknee Springs State Park manager

I was planning a fun yet relaxing beach weekend and wanted to go somewhere different. I’ve been all over the beaches on the east coast of Florida. I mean, how many times can you go to Daytona or St. Augustine? Miami Beach is always nice, but been there too. So I decided to look for an opportunity on the Gulf Coast but not in the panhandle, as I’ve also had my toes in the sand there before too. I was looking for a new adventure. Fort Myers beach it is! Never been there before, and it’s about the same distance to Miami Beach. I used my credit card reward points to select the hotel and got lucky. We stayed at the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina. The Pink Shell is located on the north end of Estero Island in Fort Myers with views of the San Carlos Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. We had a room on the top floor with an oceanfront balcony. The weather was beautiful, and I was looking forward to a relaxing few days. This was the first trip that my mom, sister and I took together without spouses, boyfriends or kids since 1981, according to my mom. How she remembered that, I don’t know, especially when she can’t remember why she called me yesterday. We arrived late afternoon on a Thursday and stayed until Sunday. That gave us two full days on the beach with chairs and umbrellas and food/ beverage service. The beach was everything I wanted it to be. We had the opportunity to kayak or paddle-board, and I really wanted to try the paddle board since I haven’t done that yet. However, I was under the impression we’d get to do it on the bay side but not so much. And I have to tell you, I’m afraid of what’s in the water. It’s not like when I was a kid and thought I was invincible. I know what’s in there now and don’t like much going even waist deep into any ocean. Even at knee deep, the seaweed mimics a jellyfish, and I get freaked out a little bit. There were warning signs posted from April to October telling you to watch where you stepped in the water due to stingrays resting in the surf. Not to mention that if I was out far enough to be on a paddle board that a shark could get me. Uh-uh, no way! We spent our days taking in the sun and walking in the sand, then would venture out in the late afternoon and evening perusing the shops along the waterfront, listening to music,and partaking in some fruitful libations (or beer!). We spent one evening driving to Sanibel and Captiva and after dinner parked to watch the sun set. I highly recommend the Pink Shell and would plan another trip here, not just to Fort Myers Beach but the resort as well. The weekend was amazing.

A public safety memorial service will be held this week to commemorate the lives of the fallen heroes of Columbia County who, like Burch and Fulton, gave the ultimate sacrifice. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church in Lake City. Murray Smith, public information officer for the Columbia Sheriff’s Office, said all current public safety officers are scheduled to attend but that the real focus will be on the heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty. “We encourage the public to come out,” Smith said. “This is a solemn event that celebrates the life of these heroes.” The event will be hosted by the Florida Department of Corrections. The guest speaker had not been announced at press time. According to Sgt. Tracy Hisler-Pace, Florida Highway Patrol public affairs officer, several public safety agencies are scheduled to attend, including the Florida Wildlife Commission, Florida Highway Patrol, Lake City Police Department and Lake City Fire Department. Hisler-Pace said the planning process has gone smoothly because everybody understands the importance of the event. “We don our uniforms every day not knowing what lies ahead, but we’re all proud to serve, and we do these kinds of jobs because we want to keep our community safe,” she said. “This memorial is to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in serving their communities.” Suwannee Forestry Center Operations Administrator Glenn Davis salutes as he honors forest ranger Josh Burch last year.

Page Editor: Eleanor Ransburg, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2015 3D DEAR ABBY: I have a question about how to handle a situation with one of my grandsons. “Rory” came to me recently to talk about religion. His mother is Christian; I am not. He asked what I thought about his mother forcing him to go to church. He has many doubts about Christianity. I tried to understand Christianity for more than 50 years, and about 20 years ago I found peace with the faith I now prac tice. My daughter doesn’t want me to talk to her children about my path. My question is, how do I address this issue with my grandson without con fusing him even more? -FOUND MY PEACE DEAR FOUND YOUR PEACE: Answer your grandson’s question honestly. He asked you what you thought about his being forced to go to church. He did NOT ask you how you found your peace -or if you did. Sooner or later, he will find his own peace, and probably the same way you did -by searching for it. Do not push him -or pull him -in any direction and keep the peace with his mother. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My sister and her husband are well-to-do, but cheap. They recently invited them selves to stay three nights in our snowbird condo on their way to a vacation in the Caribbean. My wife and I hosted them, and during their stay we went out twice for dinner. Both times my sister was quick to request separate bills. In the meantime, we had provided lodging and all their other meals for them. I am offended that they didn’t show appreciation for our hospitality by at least taking us to dinner once. I have wanted to confront my sister about my feelings, but my wife has vehement ly told me I shouldn’t. What would you sug gest? -UNEQUAL IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR UNEQUAL: I see two ways of dealing with this. Keep your mouth shut, avoid con frontation and the next time your sister tells you she’s coming for a visit, roll up the welcome mat saying you already have other plans. Or, tell your sister how you feel. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: For many years I have been depressed about my father’s opinion of me. Dad died 30 years ago thinking I was a screwup who would never amount to anything, and at the time it was true. Since his death I have turned my life around. I have been married for 38 years, raised a fine son and I am successful in my career. Still, I can’t get past his feeling of disappointment in me at the time of his death. It haunts me daily that I was a loser while he was alive. Any advice to stop feeling guilty? -REGRETFUL SON DEAR SON: Not every one matures at the same rate, and you may have been a late bloomer. Try telling yourself that you are sorry for whatever your sin of omission was, and then give yourself a dose of forgiveness. If that doesn’t do the trick, then instead of tor turing yourself, discuss this with a licensed men tal health professional. Remember, no one can change the past. We can, however, change the pres ent, and by doing so, posi tively affect our future. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your enthusiasm will help you land a better posi tion or lead you in a new direction. You can make a difference if you suggest improvements that can influ ence the way a group you join moves forward. Stand up for your beliefs. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t put yourself in a vulnerable position just to please someone else. You’ll have to weigh the pros and cons of a situation before making a decision that has the potential to compromise your integrity. Do what’s best for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It will be impossible to hide something from some one looking for the truth. Be straightforward and discuss your situation openly before it has a chance to escalate and spin out of control. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Shy away from anyone trying to push you in a direction you don’t want to go. Take pleasure in doing something you enjoy. A creative hobby, interesting entertainment or a gathering of friends or family will make your day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you remain focused on what you want to accomplish, you will reach your goal. Helping to advance a cause will pay off. The people you encounter and the opportunities that arise will help you advance in your chosen field. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Listen and learn. Keep an open mind, but maintain a practical approach to how you want to move forward. Travel will be insightful and lead to interesting questions, answers and decisions that will improve your life. Romance is highlighted. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Question everything and everyone. Contribute your thoughts and make a move that will enhance your life. Don’t put up with negative people who are standing between you and your happi ness. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Give yourself time to engage in something you enjoy doing or spend time with someone who inspires or motivates you. Embrace relationships with passion, honesty and a plan that will satisfy your goals as partners. Live life to the fullest. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Look for adven ture and you will find it. Attending an event will open your mind to new pastimes and stimulate a decision that will affect your personal life. Discuss your plans with any one affected by the choices you make. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Plan to have some fun. Participate in events that challenge you and make you think. Doing something interesting with friends and loved ones will bring you closer together. Make per sonal matters a priority and you will gain respect. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Gather information, but don’t reveal your findings or the way you feel until you are fully prepared. Having a fool proof plan will help you gain the confidence and support of the ones you want on your team. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Learn through obser vation. Someone will teach you a valuable lesson. Don’t give in to demands, only offer what you feel is fair. Put your personal life first. Enjoy spending time with someone you love.
