Almost two years ago William BJ Laurie was in a car accident which left him a quadriplegic. It crushed his C-5 vertebrae and with surgery and the help of the team at Orlando Regional and Lucrenes BIRC Unit (Brain and Injury Recovery Center) he was sent home to adjust to life with out the use of his hands or legs. His goal all along has been to recover the use of his hands and maybe even walk again. Project Walk Atlanta Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center, exists to provide an improved quality of life to people with spinal cord injuries through intense exercise-based recovery programs, education, support and encouragement. There intense therapy program usually is one week long ve days, ve long hard working hours a day. Laurie is now on his third week. This type of intense therapy he can not receive any where else and is part of getting Laurie ready to go to Panama City, Panama for Stem Cell Therapy. Laurie has regained movement in his left foot, he can even curl his toes. His hands that were always closed are now open and he can ex and move both wrists with little pain. After his rst week he told his Mother, Laura Turner I dont want to leave, I want to stay here until I can walk! He has participated in several research studies and each Thursday receives an ultra-sonic treatment that has made a difference in the scare tissue on his wound, as well as directly on his spinal injury and he stated that it made his whole body tingle like never before.

Nonymous Dear Editor:Since Dr. John Collette passed away, my husband and I talked a lot about how much he did for us and how much we miss him. Twenty years ago, we opened a very small business in our home taking care of elderly people. Dr. Collette would stop in once a week, usually on Sunday, to see the patients. Each visit turned into a teaching experience for him and a learning experience for us. Any new medication or treatment for the patients were discussed, side effects to look for, and expected benefits. As time went by our relationship changed. It became a real friendship. He loved Crescent City and to talk about its history. We learned a great deal about the people who lived here, past and present. He told us that although he considered us Yankees, we werent Damn Yankees because we con tribute to the local economy. With his help and encouragement, we became a part of a community of wonder ful, gracious people. We are grateful to be accepted here. Dr. Collette and many other exceptional people have made living in the Crescent City area a wonderful experience. Sincerely, Wesley and Angie DeYoung Crescent City Dear Editor: Joseph Q. Lickspittle here. We Lickspittles are sick and tired of having our name belittled in your newspaper. Lickspittles arrived in the United States via the Mayflower, canoes, jumped ship in St. Augustine, walked in from Quebec, and came in ships to Ellis Island. We Lickspittles came seeking freedom from oppression and freedom of religion and expression. We Lickspittles either have birth certificates, bills of sale, or our names recorded in bibles and public records. We Lick spittles have educated ourselves and gotten jobs. Some of us have joined the Armed Forces and some of us have died for our country. W e Lickspittles vote and expect our elected officials to actually lead and be truthful. We Lick spittles do not kowtow and bow to leaders of foreign countries. We Lickspittles do not draw red lines or lines of any kind in the sand without the will to back up our statements. W e Lickspittles expect our leaders to call terrorist acts TERRORIST ACTS and not workplace violence. We do not expect our government leaders to call US citizens terrorists needlessly. We Lickspittles expect our congressional leaders to retire before reaching senility and subjecting us to foolish rantings and statements. We Lickspittles encourage everyone to voice their opinion, but in a civil manner. Attacking some one for expressing their opinion and calling them odious cowards is in itself a type of cowardice. Sincerely, Joseph Q. Lickspittle Crescent CityJuliette Laurie Editor/Publisher First of all, let me say thank you to all the people who wrote in this week, yes, even to the people who called me a coward, single minded, an idiot, and a self-centered Republican. You are finally us ing your First Amendment right. In one of the Letters to the Editor, I was called a coward for writing under the name A. Nonymous, and basically, I was called out to r eveal my name. Let me explain why I write under that name. After publishing an article about one of our senators a couple of years ago, I was hounded by the IRS and a couple other organizations, so basically, my first amendment rights were violated by the very people who are supposed to protect them. I want to respond to another one of the Letters that said, and I quote, By the choice of the majority in returning the President to another 4 years in office. He is both my President and yours, and it is time that you accept that and learn to live with the decisions made through the democratic process. Okay, I realize that Obama is the President of the U.S.A but that does not mean that I have to like his policies. I asked people to write in a few weeks ago and tell me one good thing that Obama, or his administration, has done that has improved our country, yet only two people wrote in and said, Obamacare, and the, Farm Bill. Really? So were back to Obamacare and because a few people now have coverage, you think its a great thing. Yes, a couple million people may have insurance now but as of January 1 the top income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%, the payroll tax went from 37.4% to 54.2%, the capital gains tax went from 15% to 28%, the dividend tax went from 15% to 39.6% and the estate tax went from 0% to a whopping 55%, and all this was done through and included in the Affordable Healthcare Act. Need I say anymore? Except that Obamacare is a tax and not healthcare coverage or insurance: the cost has gone over a trillion dollars now that could have put millions back into the pockets of each American citizen. Tell me how Im supposed to support a President who cuts the benefits of our American Veterans who have fought for our freedoms, while this week he approved the IRS employees a bonus totaling $62.5 million. Tell me how Im supposed to support a President who sends his wife on a 4 million dollar vacation to Hawaii and then she goes on CNN and makes a statement, and I quote, The truth is in order to get things done like Universal Healthcare and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of THEIR pie so that someone else can have more! See, I dont hate Obama, the fact is this, Obama is nothing more than a liar: he said, If you like your doctor, then you can keep your Doctor. If you like your insurance company, then you can keep your insurance company, PERIOD! He promised the American people transparency, yet he goes on T.V. telling the American people that there is not a smidgeon of corruption involved with the IRS controversy. What about Benghazi? What about the A.P scandals, Fast and Furious and so on? I remember watching Obama on television before he became President. On March 4 2007, on C-Span, he stood before the American people and said how his parents met when the African-Amer icans marched over the bridge in Selma, Alabama, and that was when he was conceived. How could this be? Accor ding to records, Obama was born in 1961, four years before the march on Selma, Alabama, 1965. Normally in life, the people who raise you are the ones who influence how your life turns out; chances are that if your parents are farmers then you will be a farmer, if your parents are in the political field then you will be a politician or have a profession related to those fields. I dont hate Obama, in fact, I feel sorry for him because it must have been tough for him to be raised by a mother who was a professed communist, his communist father abandoned him, his grandparents were communists, and in fact, his grandfather put him with a mentor named Frank Marshall Davis, a communist. When he got to college, he chose to hang out with a Marxist named, The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who preached, Jesus is black and hates all whites and Jews. Obama then chose to hang out with Bill Ayers and Jim Wallace, both Marxists. According to Obama himself, Obama taught Saul Alinskys theories in college. As soon as Obama was elected, he appointed Van Jones who is a communist and hired his best friend, Valerie Jarrett as Senior Advisor to the President and also put her in charge of Intergovernmental Affairs for the United States. The problem I have with this is, her father-in-law was a columnist for a Chicago newspaper and his best friend was Frank Marshall Davis whom Obama hung out with and was one of his mentors, another communist mem ber, #47544, if you would like to look it up. My point is, I do not hate this Pr esident, again I feel sorry for him. Yes, he is the President, but I do not consider him my leader. I did not vote for him and the only reason he won a second term was because I believe that no one can run against Santa Clause and win. How are you going to win a Presidential election when the person youre running against is willing to give so many people legal citizen and not, free food, free phones, free medical care, and free cash? Today is Saturday, April 19 and our national debt this second is $17,517,016,420,310.39 dollars that means that at this very second each citizen of the U.S.A. owes $55,075.34. Even a child coming out of the womb at this very second owes this amount. The national debt grows by $2.56 billion per day, which means that in three days, when this article comes out, the government will have spent another $7.68 billion dollars. Now tell me how Im supposed to sit still and back a man who says he does not need Congress because he has a pen and a phone, and doesnt care what Congress says. Oh, and this wonderful President has signed for taxes to be increased 446 times since his second term, so please write in and tell me how this President is so great and list all the wonderful things he has done. Oh, and one last thing, quit blaming the Editor of this paper for publishing my articles. This is a free country and as you can see, they have put your replies in the paper as well. We are losing our first amendment rights so it wont be long before I wont write anymore, and not because I will be hiding, but because this past week the government had the gall to set up, First Amendment Zones in Nevada. Thank God some ranchers pulled the tents down. Last time I checked, the whole U.S.A. is a free speech zone. I am not a Republican or a Democrat, nor do I belong to the Tea Party, I am an American citizen, just like you, with a voice, Everyone has an opinion, and this is mine. You might not agree with it but, Thats how I see it. Dear Editor: I wholeheartedly agree with your right to publish whatever you want, but it should be your edi torial policy to publish the actual names of the authors. If a person cant sign their name to their opinion, then it shouldnt be published. The signers of the Declaration of Independence risk far gr eater consequences in putting ink to paper in signing their names. Daniel B. Bowser Pomona ParkDear Editor: A recent A. Nonymous opinion piece printed in the Courier Journal surprised us with the ignorance and rancor of its content. The writer, obviously too cowardly to divulge his name, sim ply ranted about what he perceived to be a severe transgression against the American people. Of course, he was pr esenting the right wing view of Obamacare, that horrible scheme that will provide millions of Americans with affordable healthcare. The article was filled with degrading and insulting remarks directly from Rush Limbaugh or Fox News, obviously obtained by a mind unable to seek real information and content to adopt the hatred and propaganda offered by those sources. The writer showed his ignorance by stating that $677 million could be divided between all 330 million Americans and would somehow make everyone rich. $677 million divided by 330 million works out to about $2.04 each, not quite enough for a cup of Starbucks coffee. He then went on to complain about the presidents wife taking expensive vacations. His shortened memory does not seem to include previous presidents wives goodwill tours. This is something that has been going on for decades. It seems that someone so information-deprived would not be aware of this historic practice. The writer goes on to claim that Social Security and Medicare are bankrupt. These are payas-we-go plans that are funded by taxes (check your 1099 form), so if there are insufficient funds for benefits, additional taxes should be levied. Further, Social Security was never intended to be a retirement account, but rather a supplement to provide security for retirees. This article is not an opinion, but a reiteration of propaganda presented by the extreme right. We are disappointed to see this sort of malevolence printed by what we have considered to be a fine local news source. If we wanted to read hatred, disinformation and degrading social commentary, we would simply pick up an American Patriot News, the anonymous hate sheet available for free at many local businesses. We avoid those businesses as much as possible, and likewise will cancel our subscription to the Courier Journal if it continues to print items such as this. Perhaps other readers who agree with us will do the same. We believe in the principle of Freedom of the Press, but it should be the freedom to print facts and truth, not lies and propaganda. It certainly should not be the freedom to sow discord and incivility in the community. Jim and Carol MacDonald Satsuma Earth Day-Tuesday, April 22 this year marks the Anni versary of the first Earth Day in 1970. It marked the birth o f the modern environmental movement. At its origin in 1970, the Vietnam War raged and young people across the country opposed it. Protests were the norm of the day, but the environment was not initially the subject of that time. However because of the book Silent Spring by Rachel Carson in 1962, which raised awareness for the environment and living things, the first Earth Day capitalized on the anti-war protests putting environmentalism front and center. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. Today, it has become a worldwide celebration. This years Earth Day focuses on Green Cities, a project to transition urban areas to evolve and to invest in efficiency and renew able energy, rebuild our cities and towns, and begin to solve t he climate crisis. Sexual Assault Awareness Month -The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the United States. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communi ties and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. W ith its earliest beginnings in the late 70s with the women-only Take Back the Night movement, that women encountered as they walked the streets at night. It quickly extended to the US with the first Take Back the Night events being held in San Francisco and New York City in 1978. In the late 1980s, the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCASA) informally polled state sexual assault coa litions to determine when to have a national Sexual Assault A wareness Week. Because of all the awareness this cause is receiving it has grown to a month long awareness campaign. With social media and the Internet, the NCASA and other organizations are growing in awareness and popularity. The Joyful Heart Foundation http://www.joyfulheartfoundation. org/ leads the pack. For the first time, the movement work ing to bring domestic violence and sexual assault to an end c omes together under one symbol, one sign, one beaconNO MORE. Under the direction of actress Mariska Hargitay, it brings together an unprecedented number of celebrities and public figures coming together to challenge bystanders to say NO MORE excuses, NO MORE silence, NO MORE violence. Both of these causes may be brought into our focus during the month of April, but, it is my hope that learning a bit more about them will keep them in your awareness year-round.

The Hard Dock Caf at Crystal Cove Resort is now The Island Restaurant. It has a new menu and a new feel. The Island Restaurants new owner Charles (Chuck) Beyer, has started a Family Night complete with character dining. Children, and par ents, can have diner with some of their fa vorite cartoon char acters and super her os. Family Night is on Tuesday and Wednesday from 5 to 9 p.m. and offers half off kids meals, a complementary shaved ice for the lit tle ones and kids arts and crafts. Beyer original ly from California, chose to open The Island Restaurant in Putnam County be cause of the oppor tunity to get involved in the community. I originally looked at opening in Jack sonville or St. Johns County, said Beyer But after meeting with Kelly and Whit ney (the owners of Crystal Cove Resort) I decided I could have more of an impact in a smaller community. Beyer plans on work ing with the Putnam County School Sys tem to give a percentage of prots from Family Nights to the local schools. Beyer is no stranger to the food industry, with 27 years in the r estaurant business in California and Memphis; he has operated r estaurants such as BB Kings Blues Club, Isacc Hayes Restau rant and Maui Beach Restaurant. In addi tion to Beyers restau rant experience he was also and actor for about 12 years while in Califor nia. He appeared in Beverly Hills 90210, Melr ose Place and Star Trek: Star Fleet Academy.

Dream Come True Nine Years of Planning Pays off for Womans Club A nine year dream became reality last Friday afternoon when the Crescent City Womans Club dedicated a new clubhouse-library complex in Hubbard Park, just north of Vernon Avenue. Weve waited nine years for this said Womans Club President Mrs. William Ellis following a brief ground breaking cer emony Friday after noon. When completed in September, the Colonial style clubhouse will house both meeting and library facilities. Construction is expected to begin ear ly next month on the 40 x 80 square foot building. Among those present at the Friday cer emony were County Commissioner Mangin Peacock and Crescent City Mayor Andy Nixon, along with womans club members. The building site fronts on U. S. Highway 17 on a 1.3 acre site donated to the Womans Club by Mrs. Glen P. Robinson. Crescent City Commission members cleared the way for construction Thursday night when they voted unanimously to abide by a City Zoning Board of Adjustment recommendation to change zoning from Residential (R-1A) to Commercial (C-1). According to a city commission report, the clubs main entrance will be on Prospect Street, rather than Highway 17, because the latter is more heavily traveled and right-of-way per mits would have to be obtained from the Department of Transportation ofcials to allow for ingress and egress on the Federally owned highway. The Crescent City Womans Club is the second oldest in Florida, formed by a group of 15 women almost a century ago in 1890. The main clubhouse building which was located on West Central Avenue was destroyed by re on November 11, 1968. Since that time, the clubs library facility immediately adjacent the former structure has served as both a meeting place and library. 317 N.

A beautiful bunch aripe banana, Daylight come and he wan go home, Day-O, that catchy tune by Har ry Belafonte. It always brings to my mind a boat full of workers in the night, singing and dancing and tossing around bunches of Bananas!!! Many consider them a meal all by themselves; bananas are pretty close to per fect!! Additionally, almonds are a great little powerhouse of nutrition!! Bananas-Healthy Food Bananas, (Musa sapienta, Musa nana) recognized by many as the Worlds Healthiest Food, most commonly come prepackaged in its own yellow jacket, however, it can also be found with red, pink, purple and black tones when ripe. They can also range from sweet to starchy in nature. The banana plant belongs to the same family as the lily and the orchid, with cluster of fruits containing anywhere from 50 to 150 bananas and individual fruits grouped in bunches, known as hands, containing 10 to 25 bananas. Bananas are one of our best sources of potassium, and because they are also low in sodium they work to lower blood pressure. They contain 20% of the RDA for vitamin B6 which helps with the formation of red blood cells and the transpor tation of iron through the body, fighting fatigue. According to Tufts University, eating a banana will raise your energy level by 20% for 2 hours! So throw away those over caffeinated energy drinks that will crash you in the end and eat a banana instead! The fiber in bananas can also help prevent heart disease, improve digestive function, as well as lower risks for atherosclerosis. They are especially protective in regard to stomach ulcers, and can be excellent to help replace lost electrolytes when we are sick. In studies, it was shown that we should be eating 2.5 servings a day of fruit in order to get better protection against certain types of cancers. Bananas were shown to be among the most protective of fruits tested. They also contain 15% of your daily allowance of both vitamin C and Manganese which helps with cancer prevention as well. So Versatile Bananas are one of the most versatile fruits there is. It can be eaten as is, used green, ripe, it can be cooked, frozen, baked, pureed, flambed, in a smoothie or shake, and the list goes on Since it comes in its own healthy little package, we can tuck it into our purses, briefcases, or lunchboxes and take it with us wher ever we go. Elvis loved his grilled, with a little peanut butter and bacon, some like theirs in pudding. However you like yours they are very good for you, and abundant, since they are available for har vest year round. Here is a recipe for a Banana Ener gy Smoothie from the Chiquita Banana Company Banana Energy Smoothie bananas (with brown peels*) nilla Yogurt (please feel free to substitute almond milk here or mix with yogurt or kefir) squeeze Place all ingredients in the blender and blend at high speed sec). Brown bananas work well for smoothies; however, you can use less ripe bananas, too, such as yellow bananas with brown flecks. You can add a banana to just about any smoothie recipe out there. There are quite a few or just experiment on your own with combinations that you might enjoy. I will be talking about this again in future articles, as time goes on, regarding other ingredients, so stay tuned! Almonds Almonds (Prunus dulcis) are a tree nut, native to the Middle East and South Asia. Although they are available year round they are at the height of their season mid-summer. What we think of as the nut, is actually the seed of the Almond tree and it is the cousin of stone fruits such as the peach, apricot and cherry. There is a special kind of almond that is grown in Spain called a Marcona almond. It is shorter and rounder, and slightly sweeter that the traditional almond. They have slightly higher oil content to them as well. They can be eaten either raw or cooked, and are used in many forms from whole to paste, to flour, oil and even milk. They are very high in nutrition; an ounce contains 6g for vitamin E, many essential B vitamins including folic acid, Magnesium and Potassium, to name a few. They are high in antioxidants which, as you know means they fight cancer and heart disease, not to mention aging. Culinary uses It is used for culinary purposes around the world. They are prevalent in pastry all over are made from them in several countries including Italy and Mexico. Because almonds are gluten free it is used quite often as a replacement for traditional flour in baked goods for those who are in need of gluten free foods. It is especially common in quick breads, muffins and pancakes, as it is more of a meal rather than fine flour. Another way that almonds are used is in the form of almond butter. As peanut allergies trend upward almond butter is becoming more and more appealing to families who have at risk children with these aller gies. Not only is it safe, but it is a healthier alternative to peanut butter. Many school lunchrooms are turning to this as an alternative so that they dont have the allergen risk. Almond milk has also gained in popularity over the last 10 years or so. The almonds are soaked in water for 8-12 hours. This water is then discarded and fresh water is added. It is then ground together and can either be left as is, or vaers can be added. It is then strained through a fine strainer or sieve. It should then be refrigerated for use, and can be used in cereal, smoothies, baking, cooking; pretty much any place regular dairy milk would be used. It will keep for 4-7 days in a covered container and should be shaken before use. It is a perfect substitute for those with lactose intolerance or milk allergies. On a hot muggy sum mer night in 1968, my mother loaded us four kids into her 1954 station wagon. Where are we go ing momma? I said. Oh youll see soon enough, son. Its a surprise, she replied. It wasnt long after that and we were sit ting in line at the drivein-movie theater Man, I can remember the smell of the popcorn and cotton candy coming from the concession stand as we passed by. Normally, I would find my friends just in front of the big screen, where we would play until the movie was half way over, then run to the concession stand to meet mom for some tasty treats, and back off for some more play time, but not tonight. Tonight would be different because my mother told me, the main character in the movie was a little boy named Travis, and how he would go on a few dangerous adven tures into the wilderness with his best friend who happened to be a yellow dog, W ell thats what the newspaper reads, she said. For you younger peo ple who dont know what movie Im talking about, the movie is called, Old Y eller, a classic tear jerk er written by Fred Gipson and made into a movie in 1957 by director Robert Stevenson. In the movie, T ravis father goes out of town to work and Tra vis is left as the man of the house. One day their cow get Rabies and T ra vis has to shoot the cow and bur n it, but a wolf comes into the scene and Old Yeller saves young Travis, but in return gets rabies. After Old Yeller is quarantined, it is con firmed that he in fact has rabies, and young T ravis has to shoot his dog. To this day I cant watch that movie without getting a lump in my throat the size of Florida. Each year ar ound 50,000 people worldwide die from rabies, and in ported in Florida. But not to worry, since 1997, when they started tracking rabies deaths in Flor ida, not one case has been r eported in Putnam County. Does that mean we should not worry? No, because the county next to us, Marion County, has the highest number of reported cases in Flor ida. The good news is that since 1997 the num ber of cases in Marion County and all of Florida has been dr opping. So why write an article on rabies? Well, just a few months ago, I was driving over Dunns creek when I noticed a sign that read, Hostile Rac coons! The sign was up was because ther e had been a few raccoons with rabies, and the county wanted to alert us. So what animals can get rabies? All warm blooded animals like, dogs, domestic cats, skunks, squirrels, foxes, bobcats, otters, coyotes, ferrets, horses, farm an imals, bats and yes, hu mans. If you see a bat, DO NOT PICK IT UP . So, how do you get rabies? Rabies is transmit ted through saliva or spit, a scratch or a bite fr om a rabid animal. What are some of the symptoms of a rabid animal? Probably the most obvious sign is a nocturnal animal, like a raccoon, out in broad daylight. Beware if you see an animal that acts like it has been drinking, a wild animal that is act ing tame, if your domes tic animal has increased dr ooling, or has loss of coordination and is stag gering, or falling over. What should you do if a wild animal or stray an imal bites you? If at all possible quarantine the animal; if that is out of the question, get a safe distance away from the animal and call 911. It is helpful if the authorities can pick up the animal for testing. Once bitten, wash the wound with soap and water ASAP. If your dog, cat or an imal gets into a fight with another animal and your e not sure if the animal has rabies then wash your animal with soap and water, remem ber to wear safety glasses and gloves, you do not want to get any saliva in an open cut or your eyes. What happens if you are bitten and the animal escapes? Get to a doctor as soon as possible and get started on a rabies medication, most of the time it will involve a series of shots of HRIG and period. The first day you will receive two shots and then a series of shots day, and the 14th day. If you are bitten in the abdomen then the shots will be given there but most of the time they are administered in the arm. So what happens if you wait? Well once you start to have symptoms chances are, you will die! Rabies is a viral infection that attacks the nervous system and infects the brain; there are only a few people who have survived rabies. When should I have my dog vaccinat erinarians recommend the first shot after 12 weeks and a booster shot around a year later, and then a routine shot every three years. Well gang, I hope this information has helped you to understand rabies just a bit more but if I could give you a word of advice here it would be to always keep an eye on your pets and to educate your little ones on the importance of staying away from stray animals, as well as wild ones, no matter how cute they are. Always treat your ani mals the same way you would like to be tr eated if you were them, and re member, if you dont plan on br eeding your animals then please have them spayed and neutered. Remember to stop by Winn-Dixie and purchase Winn-Dixie is running a special program this month where you can purchase a bag of dog, or cat food for the pets of people in our community that are going through hard times. These bags are only $5.00 a piece and will be donated to our local food bank; these bags will stay in our community and will not be shipped out of the area. Well that about cov ers it for this week. April 23, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B My last article, as those who read it probably gured out, was stale because it appeared a week late. It cov ered the last games of the college basketball playoffs, which were old hat at that time and really showed how far off I was in predicting the nal four. The victory by Connecticut over Kentucky was impressive, but I had them losing to the Florida Gators and Kentucky losing to whomever they beat in the semis, leaving me a 0 for 4 batting average. Connecticut outplayed the Gators at their own game by dominating the defensive boards and shutting down the threes of Frazier and his cohorts, and mostly disrupting the play of Scot ty Wilbikin by forcing him to turnover the ball on nu merous occasions, which was surprising. The Huskie guards jumped on him as soon as he crossed the half court line preventing him from setting up the offen sive schemes that made the Gators so effective. Nevertheless, the Gators should not hang their heads over that loss because, in my opinion, for whatever thats worth, Connecticut came in underrated and sur prised some highly ranked teams prior to meeting the Gators. I was surprised at how long they were across the board and coupled with team speed, made for big trouble for everyone. The manner with which the Hus kies handled Kentucky was impressive, and it showed how they adapted to playing two very different types of teams and prevailing. I guess you could say that after the Husky women won the National championship that Connecticut is at the pinnacle of the collegiate basket ball world. Amazingly, Im not aware that this has been hyped nationwide, which seems odd in light of the rar ity of a double championship. At any rate, it is what it is and I can move on to the NBA playoffs, which will be in full swing shortly. I dont know of any time when there has been such a logjam at the top of possible win James and Dewayne Wade are favorites, but theyve been had lately by several no haves, such as Cleve sat out a number of these games in preparation for the unbelievably long road to the Championship Game, but prior to that, the Heat showed signs of being pres sured and losing to other top competitors such as Oklahoma City and Indianapolis. It all points to a run of seven game series. The problem that creates is fa tigue with a capital F and the effect it has on the stars of the game such as Kevin Durant and the others. Fa tigue is one part, but the pressure to win, and how the individual teams cope with it is the determining fac tor for who wins it all (My opinion...Im no expert.) In my mind, the San Antonio Spurs are the dark horse to Clippers and Miami Heat capable of running hard. Any that Kevin Durant took it to him this year and, you know, thats a big statement by perhaps the best player in the world. Kevin Durant is a very deceptive player to me. He doesnt have the physical intimidation that James presents to his opponents; he looks slim and more like a tall drink of water. However, the one thing he does is shoot with uncommon accuracy. I have no stats to back me up, but this 6 long drink of water has to be the best shot around, not only from the three is more of a touch player, who has an uncanny ability to shoot through a small gap in the defense and make Grifn of the Clippers. This man with the no expressive countenance has the strength to ram the ball home as well as lead a fast break to its successful fruition all by himself. Then there are the balanced Spurs with all kinds of experience and talent to challenge and win the beeg won. Ill pick Oklahoma City to win the NBA title in a seven game series against the Miami Heatlike season so far, and why it appears the Yankees might take it alla tough thought for me to digest.
