have already made their decision
before Election Day.
Polling locations throughout
Putnam County will be open from 7
a.m. – 7 p.m. today to give voters a
final chance to vote for their favorite
candidates.
But the Elections Office reports that

as of 5:30 p.m.
Monday, it had
already received
5,422 early voting,
4,815 mail and two

E l e c t i o n s
Supervisor Charles
Overturf III said
that with about 22.7 Overturf
percent of Putnam
voters having
already made their decision, there is a
good chance the county could meet the
47- to 50-percent voter turnout goal
he’d like to accomplish.
“In the general election this year,
(pre-Election Day turnout has) been
better than the primary,” Overturf
said, noting that there were more
votes in by Monday than there were
for the entire primary voting session.

A cool time at Pomona Park’s annual event
BY PETE SKIBA
Palatka Daily News
POMONA PARK – With temperatures in the 50s,
people, in purely Florida tradition, complained about
the “frigid” cold, but shopped like they were hot for a
bargain Saturday in Pomona Park.
The 17th annual “Everybody’s Having a Yard Sale”
drew enough people to leave only a few parking spaces
here and there along a mile of U.S. 17 from the Cow
Catcher Lounge just north of Lake Street to Long’s
Garage at North Broward Avenue.
“People are really out there shopping. It is cold, so
they come up for a cup of coffee,” said Kelsey Riu, helping out at the Pomona Park Beautification Committee
food and beverage tent.
“It is good to see the community come together like
this.”

SAN MATEO – Experienced deputies know that
many times, one car stop can lead to a drug arrest.
According to a Putnam County
Sheriff’s Office report, stopping
18-year-old Steven Taylor Sawyer
on a loitering warrant led to a drug
bust.
Deputy Marcus Phillips and Sgt.
Kenny Roberts patrolled around
Horse Landing Road at 4:55 p.m.
Wednesday when they spotted a
gray SUV driven by Sawyer.

Workmen with P&S Paving of Daytona Beach put the final pavement
on the parking areas at Palatka’s Riverfront Park Monday afternoon.
Palatka Planning Board
members today will review
plans for a mobile medical unit,
which would be located behind
Quizno’s on State Road 19.
Cancer Specialists of North
Florida is interested in opening a mobile PET/CT scan unit
on the property of 111 S.R. 19
in Palatka.
“They bring their equipment to the patient, so the
patient doesn’t have to endure
a long trip to the equipment,”
according to the justification
statement included in the
planning board meeting agenda package.
Palatka Planning Director
Thad Crowe said the city commission had to first amend the
city’s code of ordinances to
allow use of a mobile medical
unit within the city.
Commissioners approved the
amendment on first reading
last month.
“We’ve never had anything
like this come before us,”
Crowe said.
Crowe said the unit is similar to a large RV. While the
commission voted to allow
mobile medical units in the
city on first reading, the planning board will consider the
proposed location of the unit
today and decide if it is an
appropriate use in that location.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor said the code amendment would be considered on
the second, and final, reading
Nov. 20.
“Should the mobile medical
units not be approved by the
city commission … this conditional use shall be automatically revoked (if approved),”
city documents stated.
City staff recommended the
planning board approve the
conditional use today, with
additional conditions.
Conditions included dumpster
screening, landscape improvements, re-striping of parking
spaces, limited signage and
operational use conditions.
Staff recommended that the
unit be in operation no more
than two days each week or
eight days each month, unless
otherwise authorized by the
planning board. Additionally,

Supreme Court to hear Florida-Georgia water suit
By Jason Dearen
Associated Press
GAINESVILLE — The U.S. Supreme Court will hear
Florida’s lawsuit seeking to limit the amount of water its
neighbor Georgia can take from a shared river system.
The court’s decision Monday to hear the case was
applauded by Florida officials, and marked a new chapter
in the decades-long regional battle over rights to take
water from the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint
river system.
Florida argues that Georgia is guzzling more than its
share of water to slake the thirst of growing Atlanta at the
expense of the Apalachicola Bay oyster fishery, which
relies on fresh river water mixing with the salty sea to
thrive.
In 2013, Florida Gov. Rick Scott appealed to the
Supreme Court after the oyster industry nearly collapsed,
causing a federal disaster declaration.
“For 20 years, Florida has tried to work with Georgia,
and families have continued to see their fisheries suffer
from the lack of water,” the governor said in a press
release. “We are fighting for the future of this region, and
we won’t quit until these resources are restored.”

The legal battle over the river system’s water, which is
also shared by Alabama, hit a crucial point in 2009, when
a federal judge ruled that the city of Atlanta had little
right to take water from Lake Lanier, a federal reservoir
on the Chattahoochee River.
But in 2011 the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
overturned that decision, and instead ordered the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers to figure out how to allocate the
water. The Corps operates dams that control water flows
in the river system.
The Corps has said it will take years of study before a
new plan can be devised — time Florida’s oystermen said
they do not have as they watch their catch disappearing.
So Florida decided to seek Supreme Court review to
speed things along — a move opposed by Georgia.
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said Monday while on the
campaign trail that the Corps is already working on a
solution for sharing the water.
“The Corps must continue on the (river systems’) manual update and not get bogged down by Florida’s litigation,”
Deal said of the Supreme Court’s decision.
“The Corps’ lawyers have emphasized the need to proceed in their filings to the court, and we will take every necessary step to ensure that the Corps is able to do its job.”

Man accused of resisting, battery
By Brandon D. Oliver
Palatka Daily News

Teddy Siehler as the recipient of organization’s 2014
Distinguished Service to Agriculture Award.
POMONA PARK – Local
authorities charged a man
with battery and resisting an
officer after a car crash in
which he was reportedly
involved.
On Sunday, Putnam County
Sheriff’s Office officials arrested Jack Brandon Depalma
and charged him with one
count each of battery, making
a false report, resisting an
officer without violence and
resisting an officer with violence.
The battery and resisting
with violence charges are felony offenses, according to the
sheriff’s office.
Authorities accused
Depalma, 31, of running away
from deputies, refusing to correctly identify himself
and trying to
force his way
past a deputy, among
other charges.
In a statement, sherDepalma
iff’s officials
said the
agency became involved in the
incident when deputies assisted the Florida Highway Patrol
with a traffic crash at the
intersection of South U.S. 17
and Old Highway 17.
Deputies noticed a white
male, who was later identified
as Depalma, trying to walk
away from one of the vehicles
and into the woods.
“As there was no driver in
one of the involved vehicles
and the man appeared to be
fleeing from the scene of an
accident, Deputy Douglas
Patterson gave verbal commands for the man to stop, at
which time he began to run,”
Sgt. Hancel Woods said in a
statement.
Patterson chased Depalma
on foot, authorities said, and
was able to catch Depalma
about 100 yards into the
woods.
Sheriff’s office officials said
that Depalma was uncooperative, refusing to give his name
and then giving a fake name.
Deputies detained Depalma
pending the FHP investiga-
tion into the crash, and he was
taken to Putnam Community
Medical Center for treatment,
authorities said.
“At the hospital, Depalma
continued to be uncooperative, and at one point unsuccessfully tried to leave the
emergency room by forcing
his way past Deputy
Patterson,” Woods said in the
statement. “Deputy Patterson
subdued Depalma and placed
him in restraints.”
Sheriff’s officials said that
after Depalma was medically
cleared, he was arrested and
booked into the Putnam
County Jail.
Depalma has since been
released on $8,032 bail.

Bureau recognizes Daredevil completes skyscraper wire walks
local cattle producer
By Carla K. Johnson
Associated Press
Special to the Daily News
Teddy Siehler, a Pomona
Park beef cattle producer, has
been named the recipient of
the 2014 Distinguished
Service to Agriculture Award
by Florida Farm Bureau.
The award recognizes a
farm bureau member who has
made outstanding contributions to the farm bureau organization as well as Florida
agriculture.
Siehler has served as a
board member, secretary and
vice president of the Putnam/
St. Johns County Farm
Bureau. A Putnam County
Fair Authority member for
more than 20 years, he has
been a leader in creating youth
programs for the organization.
He has also been president
of the Putnam County
Cattlemen’s Association for
more than 25 years and chairman of the Putnam Soil and
Water Conservation District
for two decades.
“Teddy is a fine example of
the tradition of volunteer service to our communities,”
Florida Farm Bureau
President John Hoblick said.
“His ability to work with other
people has made him a standout county board member.
“His tireless work ethic and
talent at forming a group consensus helped create a secure
foundation for the future of
Putnam/St. Johns County
Farm Bureau,” Hoblick said.
Court: Anna Nicole Smith
manager can be tried again
By Anthony McCartney
Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Anna
Nicole Smith’s manager can
be retried on conspiracy
charges related to obtaining
prescription drugs for use by
the model, the California
Supreme Court ruled Monday.
The decision came as manager Howard K. Stern seeks a
new trial. It returns the case
to a criminal judge in Los
Angeles but does not guarantee that Stern will be retried.
The ruling states that Stern
could face a retrial on two conspiracy charges if a judge
grants a request for a new
trial and does not find another
legal basis to dismiss the case.
Stern was previously
acquitted of most of the 11
counts he faced related to the
obtaining of drugs for Smith,
who died in Florida in 2007.
A jury convicted Stern and
Smith’s psychiatrist Dr.
Khristine Eroshevich of two
counts each of conspiring to
obtain prescriptions under a
false name in 2010.
Los Angeles Superior Court
Judge Robert Perry later dismissed the case, saying it was
not unusual in the celebrity
world for fake names to be
used to protect privacy.
An appeals court then
ordered the convictions reinstated and ruled that Stern
could not be retried due to
double jeopardy — a legal
principle that prevents people
from being tried twice for the
same crime.
“We look forward to going
before Judge Perry to give him
the opportunity to grant our
motion for a new trial,” Stern’s
attorney Steve Sadow said.
The Los Angeles County
district attorney’s office had
no immediate comment on the
latest ruling.
The case against Stern and
Eroshevich involved prescriptions given to Smith in the
months before she died of an
accidental drug overdose.
The defendants were not
charged with causing her
death.
CHICAGO — Daredevil
Nik Wallenda wowed
Chicago and the world
Sunday with two hair-raising
skyscraper crossings on high
wires without a safety net or
a harness, and performing
one blindfolded.
“I feel incredible,”
Wallenda said at a news conference in a nearby hotel
after completing the tightrope walks. He entered wearing his blindfold, drawing
laughter from reporters.
Recalling what made him
nervous during his aerial
performances, he said strong
winds and the steeper-thanexpected angle of the first
high wire caused him to
hurry his performance.
Wallenda had practiced at a
15-degree angle but said the
wire was actually at 19
degrees.
“That cable looked like it
was going straight up,” he
said.
Thousands of cheering
fans packed the streets
around the city’s Marina City
towers to watch the 35-yearold heir to the Flying
Wallendas’ family business
complete the back-to-back
walks.
Wearing a bright red jacket, Wallenda tested the tension of the first wire. It took
him about six and a half minutes to walk the 454 foot
stretch from the Marina City
west tower to the top of a
building on the other side of
the river. The tightrope
began at 588 feet from the
ground and ended at 671
feet.
“I love Chicago and
viewers each.
At around 6:40 p.m., just
minutes before the anticipated start of his high-wire feat,
Wallenda, who lives in
Florida, said the chilly conditions in Chicago would not
stall him.
“Yes there’s some wind,
yes it’s cool, but it’s not
unbearable,” he said. Just
two days earlier, the city had
been beset with gusty winds,
snow, hail and driving rain.
Months of preparations
have meant helicopters lifting cable to the rooftops, road
closures and clearances from
the Federal Aviation
Administration and U.S.
Coast Guard. Residents of
Marina City were asked not
to use laser pointers, camera
flashes or drones that could
interfere. Even grilling was
prohibited.
Cynthia Garner traveled
90 miles from Belvidere,
Illinois, with her husband
Johnny to watch the event.
“It was amazing. I saw it
with my own eyes,” Garner
said afterward. “I was afraid
when he first started, but
once I saw that he didn’t hesitate and just walked, I
wasn’t scared for him no
more.”

he undertook blindfolded — a

the ground between the two
Marina City towers. At a fast
clip, he made the stretch in

As he stepped from the

funding Oft-quoted ‘anonymous’ poem
for Ebola favorite of dinner speakers
research T
Jody
Delzell
n addition to its deadly effects, which
can include internal and external bleeding, the Ebola virus epidemic is also
scary because modern science has yet
to develop a reliable treatment.
The situation is instructive, and points
out shortcomings in medical research
that affect treatments for other diseases
as well.
Americans are taught to believe, correctly, that capitalism is by far the best
kind of economic system for this country. But even capitalism has its gaps, and
they can be found in the halting fight
against the Ebola virus.
Capitalism anticipates private profits
from the public’s voluntary investments.
When drug companies cannot expect
profitable results from their efforts to
develop and market an anti-Ebola vaccine, then vaccine research is less likely
to be a top concern.
Similar situations often occur with
rare childhood diseases.
This is not a matter of greed on the
part of pharmaceutical companies, but
of focusing on drugs that can help the
most people.
Medical research must be guided by
more than return on investment analysis.
The National Institutes of Health
devotes $30 billion a year to research,
mostly given toward competitive grants.
But funding has been stagnant in recent
years, and the number of grants given to
researchers has been declining. Liberals
want to blame congressional austerity
for delaying an Ebola vaccine. That’s
unfair. No one was raising the alarm
about Ebola until the latest outbreak.
But conservatives do need to acknowledge the government has a key role in
funding medical research, particularly
research that makes no sense for the
private sector.
It is also important to recognize that
failure is an inevitable part of research.
This is one federal expenditure where
Congress cannot always demand results.
To the American public — indeed, to
the world at large — Ebola certainly is a
game-changer. It does not merit hysteria, but there’s no doubt it’s a genuine
threat to world health.
It in no way diminishes the efficacy of
capitalism to see that this is the sort of
medical research where the federal government’s financial assistance is not
only justified, but essential.

Real Life
Sure, we know that smoking cigarettes is bad for our
health, harmful for the environment and a public nuisance.
But did you know that the average smoker also spends
about $1,825 a year on cigarettes? According to Smoke Free
Oregon, that’s the cost of one pack a day. If you smoke more,
you know what that means: more money going up in flames.
For your health, your family’s health and for your wallet,
maybe today’s the day to give up smoking and use the savings for something better: A vacation to celebrate life.
One way to extend the life of your home appliances is to
regularly inspect them for broken seals, food particle buildup and hard water scale. But did you know that not regularly using your appliances can also decrease their lifespan? It
sounds odd, but appliances are designed to be used on a regular basis. If you have something that isn’t used (especially
one with a sealed system like a dishwasher or washing
machine), it can deactivate and dry out over time.

here! I heard it again! This
time on television, no less!
A speaker capped off his
inspirational talk by reading a poem titled, “The Bridge
Builder.” He said the poem was
by an unknown writer. It was a
stirring finish to his talk and he received a
deserved round of applause.
What he really deserved was to learn more
about his subject. I’ve used that poem in talks
a few times, myself, but I always credited the
person who wrote it. The poem is not anonymous. The author was from my home county in
Tennessee and lived “just down the road a
piece” from our farm and was an acquaintance
of my grandparents, so I may be a bit prejudiced.
The composer was Will Allen Dromgoole,
author, poet, song writer and for 30 years the
literary editor of the Nashville Banner. That
was back when literature formed an integral
part of most newspapers. The literary page has
now mostly been replaced by superficial features such as advice columns and features
about celebrities.
Miss Dromgoole—yes, despite the masculine
name, she was a woman, the daughter of John
Ester and Rebecca Dromgoole, who lived in the
little town of Estill Springs in Franklin
County, Tenn. She owned a cozy little cottage
on Taylor’s Creek which she called “The
Yellowhammer’s Nest.”
The very first short story she wrote was published in The Youth’s Companion and won her
a $200 prize and started her on the road to
fame. Space does not permit me to list her volume of work, but suffice it to say it was considerable. She wrote 7,500 poems, 5,000 essays
and 13 books. Her poetry was good enough that
in July 1930, she was elected Poet Laureate for
Life by the Poetry Society of the South. That
life ended in 1934.
Although her work at the Nashville newspaper 60 miles away necessitated her being away
from her home, she spent most weekends and
holidays there with her widowed father. One of
her favorite spots to write was under a large
oak across the small creek which flowed behind
the house. To get there she had to negotiate a
steep bank which her father had named
“Dromgoole Slide,” and wade across the creek.
One day, Secretary of the Interior Dr. Robert
Work, while on a train, saw her poem, “The
Bridge Builder,” printed in a
cheap magazine in which the
author’s name had been omitted.
He was so impressed he read it
at the next Cabinet meeting and
sent a copy to School Life. Prior
to printing it, the popular magazine attempted to learn the name of the
author, but failed, so they assumed it to be
anonymous. Soon it was being picked up and
printed in many publications.
Finally, the Nashville Banner sent out the
word in a wire story that the author was their
own literary editor.
Miss “Will,” as she was popularly called,
explained what inspired her to compose the
poem. On one of her trips home she found that
her aged father, then 90 years old, had built a
small wooden bridge across the creek so she
could get to her favorite writing spot without
sliding down the bank and wading the creek.
Later that day she began writing a little book
which she titled, “Rare Old Chums” in which
she wrote “The Bridge Builder,” to honor her
father who died shortly thereafter.

it’s been a governor’s race and
not a presidential race.”
The Elections Office began
mailing ballots overseas on
Sept. 20, and early voting lasted from Oct. 23 until
Saturday.
On average, Overturf said,
there were 524 early voters
per day from the Crescent
City, Interlachen and Palatka
locations combined.
According to soe.putnam-fl.
com, there were 3,480 mail
and 3,841 early voters during
the 2010 general election, the
last election featuring a governor’s race rather than a presidential race.
Overturf said there could be

Audio recordings obtained
by The Associated Press showed
the Federal Aviation
Administration working with
local authorities to define a
37-square-mile flight restriction
so that only police helicopters
and commercial flights could fly,
following demonstrations over
the shooting death of 18-year-
old Michael Brown.
The Obama administration’s
defense of its actions centered
on a provision of obscure federal
regulations intended to allow
press flights as long as they
meet certain conditions. White
House spokesman Josh Earnest
sidestepped questions about
conversations on the tapes
showing police working with the
FAA to keep media away.
“In this case, what the FAA
says is that they took the prudent step of implementing the
temporary flight restriction in
the immediate aftermath of
reports of shots fired at a police
helicopter, but within 12 to 14
hours, that flight restriction was
updated in a way to remove
restrictions for reporters who
were seeking to operate in the
area,” Earnest said.
2014. The gubernatorial race
between Gov. Rick Scott and
Charlie Crist has been a race
on which many people have
focused.
The local Elections Office
two years ago added the early
voting polling locations in
Interlachen and Crescent
City, and the state has mandated longer hours on days
early voting takes place, he
said.
“Two years ago, (the office)
did eight days, and some days,
they only did six hours,”
Overturf said. “We had 10
days with 10 hours. We were
definitely better than four
years ago.”
When voters head to the
polls today, Overturf said,
they must vote at their polling
place.
Voters can click “voter information” on the Elections
Office website to find their
polling place, Overturf said,
and they can also find other
voter information on the website.
When voting, people must
have the appropriate identification, he said.
Candidates and supporters
can wear clothing bearing
candidates’ names, but they
cannot mingle and campaign
in the location and within 100
feet of it, Overturf said.
“Everybody has to have a
picture ID and a signature;
most people use their driver’s
license,” he said. “(Campaign
restrictions are) still 100 feet
from the polling location. If
it’s their precinct, they can go
in there, vote and then walk
right out.”
Polls close at 7 p.m. today,
after which time election
workers will get the votes to
the Elections Office in Palatka
as promptly as possible,
Overturf said.
If there are more voters
than expected, he said, it
could take longer than expected to get all of the results in
and tabulated.
Overturf said that everyone
in the office could be welltrained and the machinery
tested numerous times, but
a piece of equipment malfunctions.
But his office prepares for
such instances so that the process can carry on despite disturbances, he said.
“Expect the unexpected;
just deal with it,” Overturf

“I got that and I got a helicopter that flies,” Sean said.
“It is not a toy. It flies.”
The Kelsey family drove
from Seville to hit the yard

daughter Jaynee Kelsey said.
“Its great. I got a dolphin
that looks like it is jumping
out of the water for my wall,”
Jaynee said. “It is a lot of fun
to walk around and look at
everything.”
Sean also negotiated to buy
his mother a hand plow for
her gardening. Quite a haul,
and the Kelseys weren’t done.
Sean bounced around on his
pogo stick, ready to head to
the next treasure trove. He
did a little too much bouncing.

CANCER
Dear Harriette: A woman I
know from years ago has recently been in touch with me. She
is divorced and trying to make
things work for her life.
She started working with one
of those companies like Mary
Kay or Avon (but not), where
you make money both by selling the products and also based
on how many people you can
sign up to sell under your name.
I understand that she is trying
to do her thing, and I am happy
for her, but I am not interested
in it.
The thing is, she is not taking “no” for an answer. She has
called me about a dozen times.
Now she has taken to inviting
me to every event she is having.
I have told her that I really do
not have time to come. She then
asks if she can come and meet
me at my home or work. She is
relentless. I don’t want to hurt
her feelings, but I really am not
interested. How can I get her to
back off without seeming rude?
— Stepping Back, Detroit
(June 21-July 22)
Think before you act. Becoming
involved with someone who has
different values and beliefs may
seem exciting and exotic, but serious ramifications are likely to
develop.
LEO
VIRGO
LIBRA
(Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Your home will experience an
unexpected transformation. Focus
on being flexible. Share your
thoughts, but do so with diplomacy, well-thought-out suggestions
and a foolproof plan.
Dear Harriette: I am frustrated. I am a recent college graduate. I got great grades. I had
good internships while I was in
school. I did everything that I
was told to do so that I would be
ready for the working world. I
have been interviewing for four
months now with no job prospects in sight. I’m beginning to
feel like a loser. My parents are
very generous and are letting me
stay at home as long as I need,
but that wasn’t my plan. I don’t
want to be the kid who never
seems to grow up and get out of
the house. I am ready to make
my mark. What can I do to get
things going? — Ready to Work,
Bronx, New York
Dear Ready To Work: Keep
your chin up. It often takes time
to secure a first job. Keep looking with enthusiasm. Also, get
another internship if you can.
Especially since your parents are
allowing you to live at home, take
advantage of that gift and work,
even if it’s for free. Often, volunteering turns into paid work.
BRIDGE
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Open up the lines of communication with someone you are having a problem seeing eye to eye
with. Don’t make assumptions.
Have an honest and meaningful
discussion about your concerns.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You deserve a special treat.
A new look or outfit will boost
your morale and increase your
self-esteem. If you stay within
your budget, it will add to your
delight.
Dear
Stepping
Back:
Sometimes people need to hear a
clear and definitive “no” in order
to accept it. In this case, it sounds
like your politeness makes this
woman think that there is a
chance that you can and will
help her in some way. Without
meaning this, you may just be
stringing her along by not being
crystal clear about your intentions. Clearly, she thinks that
you and your potential Rolodex
of friends and associates would
be beneficial to her and her business. If you do not intend to
share these contacts with her, you
must let her know.
While it may hurt her feelings
that you are unwilling to listen to
her spiel, it will hurt less if you
just handle it. Tell her apologetically that you wish her well, but
that you are not interested in her
products and that you are not
interested in having a meeting
with her about this effort of hers
in the future.
Wish her well, but be firm
about your decision.
Steven Wright said, “Right
now I’m having amnesia and deja
vu at the same time.”
You might feel like that when
you look at today’s deal. It is
the same as yesterday’s, but it
has been rotated by 90 degrees.
Yesterday, we discussed how to
defeat three spades. But suppose
that South buys it in three diamonds. What happens with best
play by both pairs?
North’s negative double showed
length in both minors. Then,
over East’s cautious raise to two
spades (he should have bid three
spades — get to the nine-trick
level with nine trumps), South’s
three-diamond rebid was aggressive. He might have passed, waiting for partner to double again
with sufficient values to compete
at the three-level.
East-West can defeat three diamonds. West starts with his club
king and continues with his club
ace. This conventionally shows
that West started with only those
two clubs. With ace-king-third or
longer, he would have led the ace
at trick one. At trick two, East
makes a suit-preference signal
to tell West where his entry lies.
Here, East drops his 10 on the
second round to show a spade
entry.
Now it is simplest if West cashes his spade king before playing
a second spade to his partner’s
ace. Then a club lead from East
promotes a trump trick for West
to defeat the contract.
Note that if West shifts to a
low spade at trick three, East
must win as cheaply as possible
and cash the second spade trick
before leading a club. If East
wins trick three and immediately
plays a club, South can get home
by discarding his second spade.

Lord, from it may we never part.
For You have her in Your keeping,
we have only her memory in our hearts.
Many times we have wanted her,
for the sound of her voice, we long,
If love could have only saved her,
She never would have gone.
It broke our hearts to lose her,
But she did not go alone,
For a part of us went with her....
The day the Lord called our Mama
home.
So missed, so loved by her children,
Linda, Geary, and Gail

2 explosions in 4 days? Crashes raise questions about private firms
By Seth Borenstein
Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Fiery failures
are no stranger to the space game.
It’s what happens when you push the
boundaries of what technology can
do, where people can go. And it happened again to Virgin Galactic’s
SpaceShipTwo.
In the past decade, the space
industry has tried to go from risky
and government-run to routine private enterprise — so routine that if
you have lots of money you can buy a
ticket on a private spaceship and
become a space tourist.
More than 500 people have booked
a flight, including Justin Bieber,
Ashton Kutcher and little known
space scientist Alan Stern.
But it all depends on flying becoming safe and routine. This week
hasn’t helped.
Three days after a private
unmanned rocket taking cargo up to
the International Space Station blew
up six seconds into its flight, a test
flight of SpaceShipTwo exploded
Friday over the Mojave Desert with
two people on board.
The developments reignited the
debate about the role of business in
space and whether it is or will ever
be safe enough for everyday people
looking for an expensive 50-milehigh thrill ride.
“It’s a real setback to the idea that
lots of people are going to be taking
joyrides into the fringes of outer
space any time soon,” said John
Logsdon, retired space policy director at George Washington
University. “There were a lot of people who believed that the technology
to carry people is safely at hand.”
The question for space tourism
might be, “if it survives,” Logsdon
said. But he thinks its momentum in
recent years will keep it alive.
Virgin Galactic founder Richard
Branson expressed the same view
Saturday after arriving in Mojave,
California, to meet with the project
workforce reeling from the accident.
“We would love to finish what was
started some years ago, and I think
pretty well all our astronauts would
love us to finish it, love to go to
space,” he said. “Millions of people in
the world would love to one day have
the chance to go to space.”
Federal estimates of the commercial space industry —only a little of
it involving tourism — exceed $200
billion. NASA is counting on private
companies such as SpaceX and
Orbital Sciences to haul cargo to the
space station. They are also spending billions to help SpaceX and
Boeing build ships that will eventually take people there, too.
Internet pioneers Elon Musk and
Jeff Bezos have gotten into the space
game. Aviation entrepreneur
Branson and others are pushing a
billion-dollar space tourism industry.
The Virgin Galactic and Orbital
accidents have nothing in common
except the words private space,
Stern said. Still it raises issues about
the space industry.
Some experts said they worry that
private industry may just not be as
safe as the government when it
comes to going into space.
Jerry Linenger, a former astronaut who narrowly survived a 1997
fire on the Russian space station
Mir, said private industry lacks the
experience and the advocates for
safety that NASA had when he was
launching into space. He pointed to
former moonwalking astronaut John
Young, who NASA encouraged to
raise safety issues and slow things
down.
Watching the Orbital Sciences
accident on Tuesday, Linenger said,
“it was blatantly obvious that it is a
dangerous operation that is very
nearly on the edge,” yet private companies talk of doing it better, faster
and cheaper. Then they find out that
was naive, he said.
American University space policy
professor Howard McCurdy, who
wrote the book “Space and the
American Imagination,” said NASA
in the 1990s and private companies
tout lean management to get things
done faster, better and cheaper in
space. But he said that leaves no
margin for error and “is like flying
an airplane without a qualified pilot.
You really need to do it right.”
McCurdy pointed to all the Silicon
Valley whiz kids in space and worried that they come with the same
Microsoft attitude of pushing a product out and fixing it on the fly.
“I’m not sure that works for rocket
ships,” McCurdy said. “That may
work for cellphones, smartphones
and computer programs.”
With space, he said, “you’re working much closer to the edge.”
Logsdon said he wouldn’t fly on
commercial space flights now, but
Virgin Galactic customer Alan Stern
said he had no qualms about it:
“Let’s not be Chicken Littles,” he
says.
He recalled the early days of aviation or the early days of jet test pilot-
ing in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s,
when people died pushing the boundaries of technology.
McCurdy said the private space
industry seems to be having the
same growing pains and failures
that NASA and the military had
when the first astronauts watched a
rocket blow up in front of them.
It seemed that in the first five
years of U.S. rockets, one blew up
every other week, but it wasn’t quite
that bad, said Roger Launius, associate director of the National Air and
Space Museum. This week seems a
lot like those old times, he said.
Launius wonders if the public
will support private efforts despite
the visible failures, and can the forprofit companies tolerate the risk
that comes with space and accidents. Orbital’s stock price has
dropped 13 percent since Tuesday’s
accident.
For Stern the answer is obvious.
“I want to be part of the opening of
this future frontier,” the former associate administrator of NASA said. “I
want to make that better future a
reality.
“No frontier has been one without
the risk of life and limb,” he added. “I
stand with the brave pioneers of
space who do this for all mankind.”
Records: 1982 airline bomber sought
deportation to West Bank, but denied entry
By Eric Tucker
Associated Press
WASHINGTON — A Jordanian-born
Palestinian responsible for a deadly 1982 airline bombing sought to be deported to the West
Bank upon completing his prison sentence last
year, but the Israeli government denied the
request, citing problems with his identity documents, according to documents obtained by
The Associated Press.
Since then there have been “confidential diplomatic dealings” aimed at moving Mohammed
Rashed out of the U.S. and fulfilling an earlier
commitment to deport him, court filings show.
Rashed was released from federal prison
in March 2013 for the bombing of Pan Am
830, which killed a Japanese teenager and
injured more than a dozen passengers aboard
the Hawaii-bound plane. A onetime lieutenant of a Palestinian bomb maker featured on
the FBI’s list of most-wanted terrorists,
Rashed remains at a federal immigration
detention facility in upstate New York that
houses those awaiting deportation.
He was sentenced to prison in 2006 under
a plea deal that allowed for his release last
year and required him to cooperate with
investigations into other terrorist plots he
knew about. The U.S. government said as
part of the agreement that it would work to
deport Rashed to a country of his choice after
he served his time on murder and conspiracy
charges.
Emails and other documents obtained by
the AP from U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement shed light on why Rashed
remains in custody well after his release
from prison. The documents show he requested last year to be sent to the West Bank —
where he has family — and that the government sought Israel’s permission to send him
there via a bridge connecting the territory
with Jordan. Israel captured the West Bank
from Jordan in 1967 and controls access into
and out of the territory.
But the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs
said in a June 25, 2013, memo that Rashed’s
Palestinian passport and birth certificate
“contain material discrepancies” about his
place and date of birth. The memo to the U.S.
Embassy does not specify the discrepancies
but said the request would be reconsidered if
he submitted better documentation to prove
past residence in Palestinian Authority
areas.
A follow-up email between government
officials suggested that “we turn our focus to
a third country for removal” while “additional strategies and solutions” are developed.
Even before that rejection, government officials had discussed coordinating travel plans
with other foreign governments. “It will take
a little push to have Jordan accept and provide a security detail,” one email said.
The AP recently obtained the heavily
redacted documents through a Freedom of
Information Act request filed more than a
year ago. An ICE spokesman declined to
comment on the status of current negotiations, but said Rashed remains at a Batavia,
New York, facility while the agency finalizes
his deportation. Rashed has not responded to
letters sent to him there by AP.

Palatka Daily News
Lauren Futch connected for a goal
from 25 yards away to break a 2-2 tie
and the host Palatka High School girls
soccer team survived a brutal firstweek schedule to defeat Middleburg,
3-2, Monday night.
Futch’s goal came off an assist from
Michelle Dampier. Jasmine Segovia
and Jordan Nearing had goals in the
fourth and 15th minutes, respectively,
for the Panthers’ first goals of the season. The Panthers lost to St.
Augustine, 7-0, Clay, 6-0, and were
losing 3-0 to Ponte Vedra last week
before lightning halted that match in
the middle of the first half.
“That was a tough first week to
come together and play,” said Panthers
junior varsity coach Dough Schwall,
who was in charge of the team again
Monday night as head coach Dominic
Piscitello was out due to the passing of
a family member. “But the girls
worked hard and they showed they
wanted it from the opening until the
end. After the win, all the girls wanted
to call (Piscitello) and so we put him on
speaker phone at the field and I know
hearing them tell him that they won
meant a lot to him.”
Haley Nunley, who was in goal
because regular goalkeeper Courtney
Mikell got hurt playing softball this
weekend, stopped eight shots for the
victory. Palatka is 1-2.

5. The New York City
marathon is a slower one than

4. Bayern wins Saturday’s $5

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome finished third.
3. In a stunning show of offensive prowess against the Broncos’
new-and-improved defense, the New
England Patriots run roughshod over
the Broncos in Foxborough, 43-23,
handing Denver its second loss of the
season.
2. The least exciting news about
Sunday’s AAA Texas 500, at the
Texas Motor Speedway was the fact
Jimmie Johnson won. The most exciting news came afterward with the
brawl in the winner’s circle between
third-place finisher Brad Keselowski
and 29th-place Jeff Gordon, who
Keselowski took out of the race,
knocking him out of the top of the
Sprint Cup standings.
1. Just when it looks as if
Florida’s football season is dead and
buried, the Gators come up with an
inspired effort on Saturday at
EverBank Field to knock off No. 11
Georgia, 38-20.
Our topic of discussion: The tussle
in Texas.
This diatribe is not going to be
about the race itself. First, congratulations to Johnson for winning. He
has not had the best of seasons and a
win near the end of it makes up for
all the disappointment he’s sustained
in chasing after a record-tying seventh NASCAR championship.
Now that out of the way, let’s focus
on what happened in the race itself
that caused the fracas in the winner’s
circle that was so bad that the news
found its way to the major networks’
morning shows. When you do that,
chances are it’s not for the right reasons.
Then again, NASCAR officials are
more than likely cheering what happened after the race quietly in the
shadows. That’s how bad things have
gotten in the world of Sprint Cup racing.
The fun began on lap 335, which
was one lap longer than the scheduled 500 miles. Gordon went to the
outside to see if he could pursue his
Hendrick Motorsports teammate
Johnson. But as soon Gordon began
drifting away from near the wall and
closer to the middle of the track,
Keselowski motored forward to
squeeze into a gap and made contact
with Gordon’s car, cutting his tire.
That left Gordon spinning out and all
but done in 29th place.
Gordon, who came in leading the
point standings in his pursuit of a
fifth NASCAR championship, took
his car up to the circle where
Keselowski was and confronted him.
The two exchanged words, but meanwhile, Kevin Harvick, who has had a
beef or two with Keselowski, came
from behind and pushed Keselowski
forward and that’s when the chaos
began.
The two teams began swinging
fists and punches landed in the display of disarray. Both racers were left
bloodied as they both conducted
interviews afterward with Gordon
complaining about Keselowski’s driving and Keselowski maintaining he
didn’t do anything out of the ordinary.

Raiders open playoffs on road with surprising Dixie Co.
BY MARK BLUMENTHAL

Palatka Daily News
s a third-seeded district champion better
than a second-seeded district runnerup?
That question will be answered this evening when District 8-1A runnerup Crescent
City (10-13) travels to District 7-1A champion Dixie County High School (12-8) in Cross City
for a 6 o’clock match with the chance to play in
Saturday’s Region 4-1A championship game.
“Really, you don’t know the answer,” said veteran Crescent City coach Holly Pickens, whose
Raiders are playing in their third state tournament in the last four years. “I honestly thought
that (Dixie County) was a second seed. We lost to
Union County (the District 7-1A second seed)
twice during the season and they beat Union
County in the district (semifinals).”
Sounds like from that rationale the Raiders
don’t have a chance tonight, but they do have
experience on their side, thanks to players such
as three-year varsity front-line players Alexus
Sands and Jaela Chandler and defensive player
Alicia Morales. They’ve had a week and a half to
prepare for tonight’s match after losing on Oct. 23
to Pierson Taylor (23-2) in straight sets, 25-18,
25-19, 25-18, in the district title game at Taylor.
“We know they are very good serving team,”
Pickens said of Dixie County. “I think if we can
just focus on doing what we do right, then we can
let everything else fall into place. And I did prepare them for what to expect from the crowd
there – they are going to be loud.”
Pickens has first-hand experience. Last spring,
Crescent City’s softball team qualified for the
state tournament for the first time in school history and had to make the same trek to Dixie
County. In front of a large and loud crowd, the
Raiders fought hard against the then-unbeaten

Jags were
nothing
special
BY MARK LONG
Associated Press
The Jacksonville Jaguars found a
new way to lose Sunday against
Cincinnati.
It had nothing to do with rookie
quarterback Blake Bortles’ mistakes
or any defensive lapses.
Special teams doomed the Jaguars
(1-8) in this one. Jacksonville’s not-sospecial units made four glaring errors
that contributed significantly in a
33-23 loss.
“The special teams units, we did not
perform very well,” Jaguars coach Gus
Bradley said. “That’s not in our
nature.”
Aside from three blocked field goals,
Jacksonville’s punt and kick teams
have been mostly solid all season.
They were a debacle Sunday, essentially contributing to 19 points in a
10-point loss.
Bryan Anger’s first punt of the second quarter got tipped, traveled 27
yards and gave Cincinnati its best
field position of the game. The Bengals
turned it into a field goal.
Anger’s next punt was blocked out
of the end zone for a safety, putting

coach, Will’s

ANDY HALL
many games
since the calendar flipped to 2013, but when he needed to win more than ever on a chilly
Saturday at EverBank Field, he won
convincingly.
“Let me lift this off my back,” he
told the postgame media, removing an
W
invisible monkey.
He had time to rehearse his opening line, given the way Florida’s offensive line opened holes for Kelvin
Taylor and Matt Jones.
“We got whipped, physically
whipped,” said Georgia coach Mark
Richt, his 11th-ranked Bulldogs having blown any chance at making the
inaugural College Football Playoff
while giving punchless Missouri, of all
teams, the inside track in the SEC
East.
“By the second half, all the fight
was out of them,” said tackle D.J.
Humphries, who, like his coach, was
on the winning side of the series for
the first time Saturday. “(Muschamp)
made it very clear to us on Tuesday it
was going to be a physical game.
When the head man comes to you and
says it’s on you, you have to respond.”
The evidence was bigger than life
on the monstrous EverBank scoreboards – not just the score, but the
Gators’ 418 yards rushing. It was
their most under Muschamp, their
most against Georgia in almost 50
years. Taylor (25 carries, 197 yards)
and Jones (25 carries, 192 yards)
became the first Florida runners to
exceed 120 yards in the same game
since 1930.
“We see that (rushing total) on the
screen, that’s all we need,” Humphries
said.
Georgia had to know this was coming with the Gators turning to a true
freshman quarterback, Treon Harris,
in the place of turnover-prone junior
Jeff Driskel. Harris went to the air all
of six times; Florida’s final 29 plays
were runs.
“We actually had a plan to throw
more than six passes, but why start
the way you’re running the ball?
We’ve still got to develop the passing
game, but we didn’t need to

Bears, but lost, 4-1. Pickens is the
softball assistant coach to Karen
Baker.
“I won’t have a practice with loud
noise. That really drives me bananas,” admitted Pickens, whose team
is traveling in the first round for
the first time since losing in four
sets at Gainesville P.K. Yonge in
2006. “We have had a couple of
matches where the atmosphere
was loud. It’s always loud in
Taylor’s gym and it was pretty loud
in our place when we hosted
Interlachen. The crowd got into it.
Sometimes in volleyball, though,
that can hurt either team. The
noise level can be as much a deterrent.”
She said the Bears have good hitters, though none of them are tall.

Pickens said she has middle blocker Taylor Cummings back after she
had minor knee surgery in the middle of the season. “She hasn’t
played a lot in the games since she’s
been back, but she had one of her
better practices last week,” Pickens
said. “We’ve survived her being out
and we survived homecoming week
last week. We’re all good to go.”
The winner will face off with
either Pierson Taylor or Chiefland
(13-13) in the Region 4-1A championship at 2 p.m. Saturday. In either
case, the Raiders will have to travel
for the championship match.
“I just hope we play a game that
we can be proud of,” said Pickens,

and two Final Four appearances
(1986 and 2011) in her career. “If
we can do that, we have a very,

“I’m just a risky guy,”
Muschamp said. “How many
times have I tried that?”
Twice. The other time was at
Texas A&M in 2012. Gators won
that one, too.
Saturday was only the third
time in series history that an
unranked Florida club beat a
ranked Georgia opponent. That
last time was under Ron Zook in
2002. Zook entered that season,
his first as head coach, having
recently lost his father.
Muschamp entered this one
dealing with the death of his
dad, Larry Muschamp, a former
high school football coach, back
in May.
“I wish my father was here. I
thought about him late in the
game,” Muschamp said.
Muschamp’s 9-year-old son
had to listen two weeks ago as
fans called for his job during the
Missouri homecoming massacre
at the Swamp.
“I was at a loss for words the
last time out,” said Muschamp of
the experience. “A lot of negativity. To come together to beat a
good football team, (after losing)
three in a row (to Georgia) and
send our seniors out strong…
The guys get it.”
Will they continue to respond?
There may not be another 400yard rushing game on the immediate horizon, but will there be
another stink bomb like the
Missouri game? That is the question, now that Florida again has
a shot in the SEC East even with
Muschamp’s future still in
doubt.
But there was no question on
Saturday.

The Palatka High School football team will again
open the state playoffs in Jacksonville against
Bishop Kenny.
The Crusaders defeated Jacksonville Westside
22-0 for the District 3-5A championship in a Monday
night tiebreaker at Bishop Kenny. The win set up a
first-round rematch Nov. 14 against the 4-4
Panthers, who finished runnerup in District 4-5A
after beating Ponte Vedra 56-35 on Friday.
Kenny was a 44-22 winner when it hosted PHS in
the first round last season.
Westside, which eliminated Ribault in the first
quarter of the tiebreaker, will travel to District 4-5A
champion Clay for its first-round game.
Palatka completes its regular season Friday
against its oldest rival, St. Augustine.

Fisher not worried about Winston
TALLAHASEE — Florida State coach Jimbo
Fisher is not concerned with the health of quarterback Jameis Winston after the Heisman winner
tweaked an ankle during the win against Louisville
last week.
Fisher called it an injury no different than several
other players with “sore ankles.”
Fisher said during his Monday press conference,
“Pain is temporary. You’ve got to put it away.”
Winston favored the ankle during much of the second half, but still threw for a season-high 401 yards
and three touchdowns as he led the Seminoles back
from a 21-point deficit.
Winston participated in practice Monday as No. 2
Florida State prepares to host Virginia on Saturday.
His 325.6 passing yards per game ranks No. 6 in the
nation.

Palatka-Bishop Kenny rematch set
JACKSONVILLE — The Jacksonville Jaguars
have placed cornerback Will Blackmon on injured
reserve and signed rookie linebacker Khairi Fortt off
Cincinnati’s practice squad.
Blackmon had surgery last week on a broken left
index finger.
The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Fortt was a fourth-round
draft pick by New Orleans in 2014 and opened the
season on the injured reserve/designated to return
list. He was waived Oct. 6 and claimed off waivers by
the Bengals the following day. He was waived a week
later and signed to the practice squad.

Cincy ahead 12-3 in the closing minutes of the first
half.
Things continued to unravel after the break.
Early in the fourth quarter, Adam Jones returned
a punt 31 yards to the Jacksonville 23. The
Bengals scored a touchdown two plays later for a
26-10 lead.
Jacksonville scored twice to make it 26-23 with
8:13 remaining, but Josh Scobee’s ensuing kickoff
squirted out of bounds near the goal line and gave
Cincinnati the ball at the 40-yard line. Rookie
Jeremy Hill scored on the next play, a 60-yard run
that left the Jaguars shaking their heads and looking for answers.
“Obviously they scored on the next play so it
looks bad,” Scobee said. “It was bad timing, obviously, and I wish I could have it back, but just got
to deal with it.”

Keselowski might not have been smart to take out
Gordon the way he did, but that hole was there for
him to go through before Gordon ventured back
toward the middle of the track. It’s not Keselowski’s
fault for trying to be aggressive in that particular
moment.
The bottom line, though, is that not many people
like Keselowski’s “go for broke” attitude. He’s not the
first one to master that and he actually does have racers who respect that kind of racing. The problem is
when you take out cars and put people in danger. And
that’s what happened a month ago when usually
mild-mannered Matt Kenseth was caught in a skirmish on the track with Keselowski, then decided to
jump the 2012 season champion from behind in a fracas that involved about a dozen people.
Some have pointed to the new Cup format where
racers get eliminated for not racing up to quality.
They say there’s more pressure on them to succeed
than ever before and tempers flare.
Whatever the case may be, it needs to stop.
Otherwise, build steel cages somewhere inside the
oval and let the racers take their frustrations out on
one another there.
Then again, it may be something NASCAR officials
might greenlight. There’s no question that the ratings
have not been where they once were and because of
the economic struggles the last few years, the fannies
aren’t in seats as much anymore. So anything that
brings news to the NASCAR name is welcome.
Even if it’s something as negative as the fighting
we’ve seen in recent weeks.
It has to stop. Or, maybe, just give them gloves and
let them at it.
Because all this built-up testosterone overload and
“boys will be boys” BS is getting old ... quickly, too.
Memo: To many, auto racing is a “fringe” sport.
Let’s not throw it over the cliff with these antics after
races. NASCAR doesn’t need to further be a punchline.

Poetry
(NORTH OF SANITY,
SOUTH OF CARING)
I live a little
North of sanity,
and a long ways
South of caring.
I don’t bother anybody,
and I’m doing OK,
and I’m happy in
This old skin that
I’m wearing.
I’m a little too old
and way to too tired
To worry much about
what others might
be thinking.
My cup of life
may now be a little
more than half empty,
but I’m going to keep
on drinking.
I’ve tamed most
of my demons,
I no longer sit
around day dreaming,
or making excuses,
or screaming.
I’ve got Pandora back
in the box,
and I’ve secured the
top
with a master lock.
What else can I say,
I’m living life my way.
Residing a little
North of sanity,
and a good ways
South of caring.
I’m living for today,
and I’m doing OK.

On Saturday, Oct. 4, the
Interlachen Church of the
Nazarene at 179 Miller Square
had its first “Honor and Glory”
motorcycle ride. This ride and
proceeds collected were all to
benefit the Wounded Warriors
Project. After all participants had
been registered, four Cadets
from the Interlachen High
Schools JROTC program, along
with their JROTC teacher Col.
Leggett, presented the colors of
the United States flag and
opened the ride in a safe
traveling prayer. “We would like
to recognize the JROTC group
and publically like to send our
appreciation to all that
participated in the ride and to
help make this ride possible,”
said organizers of the event in
an email.
Be Thankful to our God
who made it all.

To Make a
Difference
We will all face a time
that our journey here
will end.
May mine have made a
difference to my community, my family, and my
friends.
I am so thankful for
my blessings; for everything God has given me.
I know that they
belong to Him; He has
just loaned them all to
me.
May I take care to
honor Him in all I say
and do;
To carefully weigh the
choices I make, and to
my God be true.

Reflection
My ship of life is on a
shoal.
It’s floatation is my
goal.
I was told, “Don’t sail
at night.”
I disregarded, sealed
my plight.
The oaken hull grinds
on a rock.
All to soon, comes “salvage” talk.
My life, once proud,
and boastful, yet
has landed me in this
foul net.

Innovative new UF dorm will combine living, learning
By Jeff Schweers
Associated Press
GAINESVILLE — Students
living in the residence halls on
campus at the University of
Florida cannot operate a business out of their dorm rooms.
Can’t have FedEx trucks coming by to pick up packages.
Can’t have supply trucks
dropping off supplies. Can’t
build prototypes in the community room.
A new residence hall being
built two blocks east of campus will allow all that and
more. In fact, entrepreneurs
and startup businesses are
welcome.
Infinity Hall, a first-of-its
kind public-private partnership between the University of
Florida and Signet
Development, will have dorm
space for 308 students to live,
eat and sleep, and another
20,000 square feet of space for
them to pursue their projects.
It’s also the first privately
funded project in Innovation
Square and the first privatized dorm at UF. The fivestory, 97,000-square-foot
dorm’s $23 million cost is
being footed entirely by
Signet, which also put together the design and construction
team. It’s also an economic
development project for the
city of Gainesville that will go
back on the tax rolls.
“Signet is the first privatesector partner we’ve had,” UF
President Bernie Machen
said.
The residence hall project
has special significance for
Machen, who is stepping down
as UF’s 11th president in
December. “It is probably my
last project to start as I go
walking out the door,” he said.
But it also represents a
huge shift in the relationship
between UF, the city and
county, and private partnerships, he said, anticipating
more projects of its kind to
come.
When the building opens
next August, Signet will continue to manage the facility
operations, and UF Housing
and Residence Education will
manage occupancy and collect
rent from the students who
move into the dorms, provide
staffing, supervision and programming to support what UF
is calling an “Entrepreneurial
Living Learning Community.”
Signet’s development portfolio includes $3.8 billion
worth of projects over the past
17 years, according to the
company’s presentation to the
Community Redevelopment
Agency. Signet has built several university residence
halls, including three at the
University of Akron.
When UF sold the property
to Signet, “we said your development agreement is you have
to build an entrepreneur’s
dorm. You can’t just go and
build anything,” said Ed
Poppell, director of UF
Development Corporation and
Innovation Square.
“Housing will assist in making it look and feel like a UF
property, but it’s not,” Poppell
said. “UF has no risk, no
money in the deal. UF is managing it and getting paid to do
it. We’re not aware of any
other agreement like it.”
Of equal significance,
Infinity Hall is the first building to be constructed since the
48,000-square-foot Innovation
Hub was completed in 2012
for $13.2 million ($8.2 million
Economic Development
Administration grant and $5
million from UF).
Innovation Hub is the catalyst for the 40-acre Innovation
Square — a sprawling zone
that occupies much of the real
estate between UF and downtown Gainesville, encompassing Ayers Plaza and the site of
the old Alachua General
Hospital at its core.
If Innovation Square is
meant to be a bridge between
UF and the business commuVOTE
Terrill
HILL
nity, then Infinity Hall is seen
as a key component linking
UF and the Innovation
Academy as the spawning
ground for entrepreneurs who
will interact with the
Innovation Hub as a spawning
ground for startup businesses.
And it’s going to provide
extra beds to meet the growing demand. UF has 9,500
student residents and turns
away 500 to 1,000 each year,
said Norb Dunkel, UF assistant vice president and director of housing. The idea is the
dorm would be open yearround to support the
Innovation Academy, he said.
Initially, all undergraduates from all academic disciplines and majors can ask to
opt into the space as part of
UF’s standard application and
contracting process, said T.J.
Logan, associate director of
administrative services,
“While Innovation Academy
students will play an important role in occupying the
building, we know that entrepreneurship takes many
forms and comes from many
disciplines,” Logan said. “As
the program in the building
develops, we anticipate that
high demand will necessitate
a selection process that could
include elements like a formal
business plan.”
So far, students are showing a high level of interest in
the new residence hall, Logan
said.
“This building is so unique,
and for many students this
represents an opportunity to
experience college in a way
that is not available at other
institutions,” Logan said.
Those unique features
encompass 20,000 square feet
of space — 20 percent of the
building’s floor space — that
will not be generating rent
revenue, Poppell said. “That is
unheard of.”
It will have offices, collaboration lounges, design and
prototype space, and a 3-D
printer. The university will
supply materials such as
resin, metals and ceramics —
and equipment such as highpowered waterjet cutters to
fabricate the materials, and
classroom space for Innovation
Academy students.
“If someone comes up with a
great business concept, we
will give them the space to do
that,” Poppell said.
The residence hall’s proximity to the Innovation Hub is
also expected to provide opportunities for students to interact with entrepreneurs, CEOs
and venture capitalists
already in the game.
“This is so synergistic, the
fact we are going to have 300
of the brightest minds from
across all disciplines demonstrating an entrepreneurial
bent kitty-corner from the
Hub,” Innovation Hub
Director Jane Muir said. “We
are looking forward to opportunities to have students come
across to the Hub to meet with
the entrepreneurs there, the
startup businesses.”
Anthony Manna, chairman
of Signet, said his company
has built a lot of projects in
the U.S. and around the
world, but he is most excited
about this one with UF
because it represents the “full
fruition of the company’s
entrepreneurial ideal, its
vision and its commitment to
public/private partnerships.”
“Universities across the
United States will look at
Infinity Hall as a benchmark
for living learning centers,”
Manna said.

What They’re NOT Telling
You About So-Called “Energy
Saving” Cooling Systems
It turns out that all this
“sealing in” of our homes
to reduce energy bills has
a sickening drawback:
The American College
of Allergy, Asthma and
Immunology says we’re
simply “recycling” the
same bacteria over and
over. This condition
leads to “…up to 50%
of allergic reactions are
caused by polluted indoor
air.”
Is it worth all this to save
a few dollars on energy?
We didn’t think so,
and did some research.
Now, I’m happy to
report finding something
that many would call a
breakthrough.
We’d love to show you
during a completely
FREE, no-obligation
Energy Survey. It’ll
take a few minutes, but
we promise to make it
worth your time. This
breakthrough can give
you…
■ Mountain-Fresh Air
Indoors. Headaches,
asthma, coughing and
other flu-like symptoms
can be caused by indoor
air pollution.
■ Guaranteed Energy
Savings. We guarantee
you’ll save at least 20%
on your energy bill over
the first year or we’ll
110414b6.indd 1
write you a check for
the difference.
■ 10 Year Parts and
Labor Guarantee.
This new system is
so reliable that we
guarantee you can’t
spend a penny on
repairs for 10 solid
years.
“Why didn’t anyone
think of this sooner?”
Unfortunately, most
contractors only know
how to cool or heat the
air, regardless of the
health concerns… and
to do it as cheaply as
possible. We’ve taken a
different approach that’s
still economical, but far
healthier.
We’ll be glad to show you
how you can cool your
home for less money…
and stay healthier too!
You’ll breathe easier just
knowing. Call us now.
