U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho Honored as Guardian of Small Business by NFIB
The National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading small business association, today named U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho (FL-3) a Guardian of Small Business for his outstanding voting record on behalf of America’s small-business owners in the 113th Congress.
NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner praised Rep. Yoho for “standing up for small business.” In presenting the group’s coveted Guardian of Small Business Award, Danner said, “Small-business owners are very politically active – paying close attention to how their lawmakers vote on key business issues and stand by those who stand for them.”
“The record shows that Rep. Yoho is a true champion of small business, supporting the votes that matter in the 113th Congress,” said Danner. “This award reflects our members’ appreciation for supporting the NFIB pro-growth agenda for small business.”
NFIB’s “How Congress Voted,” which serves as a report card for members of Congress, was also unveiled this week. The report presents key small-business votes and voting percentages for each lawmaker. Those voting favorably on key small-business issues at least 70 percent of the time during the 113th Congress are eligible for the Guardian award.
In all, NFIB will present Guardian awards to 232 Representatives who stood up for small business.

On Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 9:30 p.m., a neighbor to 559 NW Gwen Lake Boulevard called to report hearing “two loud pops” from the residence. Lake City Police Department officers responded to the residence and established a perimeter while officers were attempting to make phone contact with someone inside.
Within a few minutes of receiving the call, a female arrived at the Police Department saying she was just shot at by her boyfriend as she was running out the front of the residence. She added his 8 and 10 year old daughters were still inside the residence.
Due to the nature of the call, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) SWAT Team was requested and responded, along with their Hostage Negotiations Team. The Lake City Fire Department and Lifeguard Ambulance service also responded and were on stand-by. Numerous attempts were made to contact the male suspect inside the residence, but none were successful.
After evacuating neighboring residences, the CCSO SWAT Team made a tactical entry into the residence. While inside they encountered the two young girls, unharmed, as they ran to them and later discovered the suspect, a 37-year-old white male located in a shed at the rear of the property, deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. CCSO Victim’s Advocate also responded to the scene to assist with the two young girls.
Due to the ongoing investigation by LCPD Criminal Investigative Division, there are no other details available at this time. The name of the deceased is not being released until notification of next of kin has been made.
