GIVING THANKS


LINDA YOUNG/Lake City Reporter
At the community Thanksgiving dinner at First Presbyterian Church in Lake City, Joyce Skinner (seated from left), Jean
Carson, Ann Finewood, Ellie Hembree and Robert Hodgson had a lively conversation as they ate, while Mike Millikin
(standing) served them rolls.


Friends, strangers


community dinners


Two local organizations
fill Lake City residents
with all the trimmings.
By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter. corn
Thanksgiving Day in Lake City
was a time for friends and strangers
to come together as community.
More than 700 people ate dinner
in Olustee Park, at the First
Presbyterian Church or had Peals
from those places delivered to them
by volunteers.
Pastor Cleopatra Steele from
Miracle Tabernacle organized the
Olustee Park feast for the 15th year
and served more than 550 meals.
Christ Central Ministries Pastor
Lonnie Johns was one of the
volunteers.
"We've been helping out, I would
say, for three or four years," Johns


said.
He was there with members of
his congregation, including
Stephanie Polhamus, her husband
David and their children Ana, 17,
William, 15, and Micheala, 10.
"We've been blessed and able to
be with our family and have a roof
over our heads," Stephanie
* Polhamus said. "It's not a big sacri-
fice, but something to show people
that are alone that we care about
them and an opportunity for us to
give that love and affection that
everybody needs.
The first year was an eye-opener
for the family.
"We never realized there were so
many people in Lake City that were
homeless and all of a sudden we
were seeing people with their pos-
sessions in buggies and three-
wheel bikes everywhere. He
(David) was telling them to put it in
the truck and I will take you to get


you something to eat," Stephanie
said.
"I'm glad that we have the oppor-
tunity to give something to the
community," Stephanie said.
She said William and Micheala
usually play with the other children
every year while Ana serves food,
and David replenishes the serving
table and chased paper plates that
blew off the serving table in the
wind.
Another family from Christ
Central was volunteering for their
first year together.
Doris Campbell said, "My grand-
daughter Angelico Peoples
(9 years old) is with me and this is
how she wanted to spend her
Thanksgiving Day. This is our first
year together."

By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com
A local man will serve on a new
500-member committee that advises
the National Task Force on
Community Preparedness and
Response.
Marty Martinez, director of
Florida Department of Corrections
Academy, in Olustee, was invited to
serve on the Advisory Committee to
the Task Force by James S. Gilmore
III, former governor of Virginia and
chairman of the Congressional
Panel to Assess Domestic Response
Capabilities for Terrorism Involving
Weapons of Mass Destruction -
known as the Gilmore Commission
on Homeland Security.
Martinez said it is the job of the
committee to come up with plans to
better respond to natural disasters
(such as hurricanes), pandemics
(such as avian flu) and terrorism.
When Gilmore notified him of his
appointment, he also asked him to
consider which of the eight subcom-
mittees he wanted to serve on,
Martinez said.
For help, he sought advice from a

Officials optimistic on

bringing troops home


Troops' levels could
drop below 100,000
in Iraq by next year.

By LOLITA C. BALDOR
Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The
Bush administration and mili-
tary leaders are sounding opti-
mistic notes about scaling
back U.S. troops in Iraq next
year, as public opposition to
the war and congressional
demands for withdrawal get
louder.
Contingency plans for a
phased withdrawal include
,proposals to further postpone


or cancel the deployment of a
Fort Riley, Kan., brigade and
an option to put a combat
brigade in nearby Kuwait in
case it is needed, said a senior
Pentagon official.
While military leaders
would not confirm the size of
possible withdrawals, conver-
sations with defense officials
and analysts suggest troop lev-
els could drop below 100,000
next year, contingent on the
progress of the Iraqi govern-
ment and its security forces.
There are currently about
155,000 U.S. troops in Iraq.

Elton John to marry partner


LONDON - Elton John says he and
his partner, David Furnish, will tie the
knot next month under Britain's new
civil union law.
The ceremony will be Dec. 21, the
effective date of the legislation creating
partnerships to give gays many of the
legal protections available to married
heterosexuals.
"It'll be a very small family affair, and
then in the evening there'll be a soiree
somewhere, which we have yet to work
out," John told Attitude magazine in an


Crowe blames
media for incident
MELBOURNE, Australia
- Russell Crowe says he
believes the media blew his
phone-throwing incident out
of proportion.
The Oscar-winning actor
pleaded guilty earlier this
month to third-degree
assault, admitting to a judge
that he threw a phone that
hit a New York hotel
concierge in June. He had to
pay a $160 court charge and
was sentenced to conditional
discharge, which means he
must not get arrested for one
year.


interview released Thursday.
The only guests at the ceremony
itself, he said, will be his parents and
Furnish's parents.
'They've been so fantastic to us and
so supportive. Out of respect for their
support, we want to just keep it small,"
John was quoted as saying.
Furnish, a Canadian-born filmmaker,
and John have been together for
12 years, and John has publicly credited
Furnish with helping him to overcome
addictions to alcohol and drugs.


"I got a $160 court-cost
fine for something that would
have had more newsprint
about it than some very
horrific and specific things
that we should know about in
our community," he told
reporters in Melbourne.
Had Crowe been convicted
of the more serious charges
initially filed against him -
assault and criminal
possession of a weapon, the
telephone - he could have
lost his right to work in the
United States and might have
faced seven years of prison
time.

Grand jury to hear
bribery claim
TALLAHASSEE - A
federal grand jury will hear
testimony next month on
allegations that a former
executive for Florida's
state-run insurer took bribes
to steer business to adjusters
handling claims filed because
of last year's hurricanes.
The state Department of.
Financial Services confirmed
this week that federal
prosecutors were beginning
a criminal investigation of
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. and its former chief
operating officer, R. Paul
Hulsebusch.
The allegations against
Citizens surfaced in
mid-September in a lawsuit
filed by a Houston-based
adjusting firm. Universal
Risk Insurance Services of
Houston alleged that
Hulsebusch accepted at least
$25,000 in goods as a bribe
from an adjuster who then
won a contract to handle
claims for Citizens.
Citizens officials and the
U.S. Attorney's Office in
Tallahassee didn't return

Gary Perna, head of B&H
Claims Service of Wake
Forest, N.C., a
claims-adjusting firm that
worked for Citizens last year,
is among those subpoenaed

Perna said he contacted
Citizens officials last
December with concerns
about how claims-adjusting
operations were being
mismanaged and possible
conflict of interest violations
in how contracts were being
awarded.

An audit requested by the
charity's board of directors
turned up financial

Ivey resigned in May
citing health problems and

mother's death. He told the
board he would repay "all

excess of his $55,000 annual
salary, the report said.

Ivey has been charged
with one count of grand theft
and one count of scheme to

Fake Navy Seal
faces sex charges
MIAMI - A man, who
used a fake U.S. Navy Seals
badge to lure women to his
car to sexually assault them,
was arrested Wednesday,
police said.
Art Dominguez, 39, was
charged with two counts of
armed kidnapping, attempted
sexual battery, two counts of
scheme to defraud,
possession of cocaine and
drug paraphernalia, reckless
driving and failure to register
as a sexual offender in
Florida, Miami police said.
Dominguez is registered
as a low-risk sexual offender
in New York, officials said.
He allegedly used the fake
badge, on which the word
"Lieutenant" was misspelled,
to pretend he was an
immigration agent and detain
women in Miami. He then
tried to sexually assault the
women in his car, police said.

LAKE CITY REPORTER STATE & NATION FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2005


By NATHANIEL HERNANDEZ
Associated Press

ELMWOOD PARK, Ill. -
National Transportation Safety
Board investigators
interviewed emergency work-
ers, hoping to learn why a com-
muter train slammed into vehi-
cles at a backed-up
intersection, injuring
16 people, officials said
Thursday.
The train struck five
vehicles and set off a chain
reaction during Wednesday's
evening rush hour that
ultimately involved as many as
15 vehicles, Metra
spokeswoman Judy Pardonnet
said.
Pardonnet said Thursday
that 13 of the 16 injured were
taken to hospitals, and three
people remained hospitalized
Thursday morning. Two of the
people were in serious
condition and the condition of
the third was unknown, she
said.
Acting NTSB chairman
Mark Rosenker said investiga-
tors had interviewed some
emergency personnel who
responded to the accident.
More details will be released
at a Wednesday afternoon
briefing, he said.
Pardonnet had said cross
gates appeared to be working
properly when the train went
through the intersection. But


witnesses gave conflicting
reports Wednesday as to
whether the gates were up or
down.
Christina Rodriguez said
she was driving eastbound
when her car and several
others were trapped between
the crossing gate arms that
came down. She saw the lights
of the commuter train bearing
down on her before she
jumped out of her car and ran.
"I tried to move (my car),
but I couldn't. Nobody
moved," said Rodriguez, 29, of
Chicago.


'Too many tried to get in"
the gates, she said.
John Pease, 32, who lives
across from the accident site,
said he did not see any
warning lights flashing when
he looked out his apartment
window and saw the end of the
accident.
"The gates were definitely
up," Pease said, adding that he
saw the gates come down after
the crash.
The train, which left
Chicago's Union Station at
4:25 p.m. headed for Antioch,
probably was' carrying


between 400 and 500 passen-
gers when the accident hap-
pened, Pardonnet said. Three
of the injured were on the
train, the others outside.
The rail crossing cuts
through a busy diagonal
intersection that runs into
Chicago. A large sign above
the tracks reads: "Long
crossing. Do not stop on the
tracks." .
Officials did not know how
fast the train was traveling, but
the speed limit for express
trains on that line is 70 mph,
Pardonnet said.


California airports have nation's worst safety records


By IAN GREGOR
Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- Los
Angeles International Airport
and two others nearby have
the worst runway safety
records among the nation's
busiest airports in recent
years, a review of federal
aviation data shows.
Federal officials are most
concerned by the situation at
bustling LAX, where commer-
cial jets have come perilously
close to crashing.at least twice
since 1999, the first year of
data reviewed by The
Associated Press.
The problem persists
because, despite millions
spent to reduce violations
known as runway incursions,
LAX's airfield has built-in
flaws: It's too tightly packed
and arriving aircraft must
cross runways used for
takeoffs.
Nationwide, the number of
incursions has dropped about
20 percent from its 2001 peak.
Airports in Boston,
Philadelphia and Newark had
unusually high numbers of
incursions in fiscal year 2005;
those in Denver, San
Francisco and New York's


La Guardia had none, accord-
ing to federal records.
While other airports period-
ically make headlines, federal
attention has focused on LAX
because the incursion rate has
remained consistently high.
Now, after years of planning,
the airport plans a permanent
fix: a $250 million airfield
renovation that officials say
should eliminate most of the
violations.
Federal authorities and LAX
officials say that, using interim
fixes, they have reduced the
severity of the incidents, if not
the number.
"I don't feel there's an enor-
mous safety problem there
right now (but) the numbers
do concern us," said Dave
Kurner, the Federal Aviation
Administration's regional
runway safety program
manager.
Runway incursions occur
when a plane or vehicle on the
ground gets too close to a
plane that is landing of taking
off. The worst aviation accident
in history occurred on a run-
way in 1977, when two jumbo
jets collided at the airport in
Tenerife in the Canary Islands,
killing 582 people. At LAX,
35 people died in 1991 when an

Trying to make Thanksgiving normal after Wilma


Associated Press

CHOKOLOSKEE -
Hurricane Wilma flooded her
home with a foot of water, but
Midge Weeks still planned to
host a traditional Thanksgiving
dinner for her children with
chocolate cream pie and a
donated turkey.
She's one of several hundred
southeastern Collier County
families trying to have a nor-
mal holiday after Wilma
washed away .most of their
possessions.
Weeks, 61, has no insurance
and the Federal Emergency
Management Agency rejected
her application for assistance
last week. Earlier this month,
her husband of 44 years died


of cancer.
"We have a lot to be thank-
ful for this Thanksgiving for
this year but there is also
going to be a very big void in
our home," she said. "It's
going to be very emotional but
we're trying not to think about
it."
Wilma hit Chokoloskee and
Everglades City as a Category
3 hurricane on Oct. 24, with
the hurricane's worst storm
surge inundating the area.
The area's stone crab industry
was devastated - half the
crab traps were reported lost.

16 hurt as train strikes cars on track


By DENISE KALETTE
Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE - A
Florida production company
sued tennis star Maria
Sharapova in federal court,
seeking a judgment declaring
that it is legally entitled to mar-
ket a documentary about
Russian women tennis players.
According to the suit filed
Monday in U.S. District Court
in Fort Lauderdale, Sharapova
objected to the use of her
name and image in the docu-
mentary, "Anna's Army:
Behind the Rise of Russian
Women's Tennis," which was
produced by Byzantium
,Productions, Inc., of West
Palm Beach.
The documentary has been
sold in DVD format since May,
in the United States and
abroad, and has also been
broadcast on television in the
U.S. and Russia.
"In this country where we
have a First Amendment, we
have the right to make
documentaries about current


events, subjects of interests.
Those documentaries often
involve celebrities," said attor-
ney L. Martin Reeder, Jr., who
represents plaintiff Byzantium.
"My clients hope to earn a
profit on this one."
The documentary focused
on the success of Russian play-
ers as they won tournaments
and moved into the top ranks
of women's professional
tennis, according to the suit.
Byzantium filmed
-Sharapova at a Women's
Tennis Association press con-
ference in Berlin in 2004, and
used her photograph, along
with photos of eight other play-
ers, on the front of its DVD.
The back cover used
Sharapova's name, along with
the names of five other Russian
players.
In 2005, Byzantium changed
the DVD cover to a single pho-
tograph of tennis player Anna
Kournikova, with wording that
the documentary featured
Kournikova, Sharpova, and
two other players, the suit said.


Lake Worth couple

dies in plane crash


Associated Press
MIMS - A husband and
wife on their way to visit
relatives for Thanksgiving
were killed when their
single-engine plane went down
in a heavily wooded area,
friends said.
Charles . Frederick
Rosenbaum, 69, and his wife
Linda, 63, of Lake Worth, died
when the plane crashed
east of Interstate 95 on
Wednesday, friend Keith
Campbell said.
"He was a good pilot, so
it must have been a
catastrophic failure that
caused the plane to go down,"
Campbell told the Orlando
Sentinel.


The plane was trying to land
at Arthur Dunn Air Park in
Titusville after the pilot report-
ed engine trouble shortly after
takeoff from Volusia County,
the Brevard County Sheriff's
Office said.
"It looks like he passed right
over the rest area that has a
pretty open space right behind
it," said Cmdr. Jimmy Donn of
the sheriff's office. "He was
only a few hundred yards from
the Walkabout (golf course)."
Charles Rosenbaum, known
to friends as Fred, was a part-
ner with Campbell
in the Palm Beach
Gardens-based Legal Air LLC.
An investigation is
continuing.

LETTERS TO

President gets
a bum rap
To the Editor:
To the letter writer in a
recent letter titled "President
allows country to slip into
oblivion."
First let me thank you for
your faithful service to our
country in WWII, and
currently. Sir, you are being
completely brainwashed by
the liberal media. You have
swallowed hook, line and
sinker all that they, liberals,
say is wrong with America.
They have sold you and
others that America is THE'
problem, not terrorists.
You want the president to
close the borders immediately.
Do you think border crossings
are a new thing? Why doesn't
the Democratic party or
Republican party offer a plan
to the president to stop illegal
border crossing?
To the political party that
makes the plan, they will be
completely demolished and
demonized by liberals and the
media. They would, be called
or labeled racist, profilists,
killers of the American dream
for a segment of the people,
ostracizing a race on and on.
The ACLU and Liberals don't
want Middle Eastern men
screened while entering
America, much less Mexicans
crossing the borders.
Another concern of yours
was our president's spending.
I'm not sure how the
president ranks as a spender.
I don't believe any president
has fought on two war-fronts,
has the natural disasters and
had to institute new
departments such as
Homeland Security that do not
come cheap. All spending has
to pass a bipartisan test so
they share in spending.
America has always been
the most charitable nation on
Earth, so should we stop?
Earlier in President Bush's
presidency he was demonized
for not spending enough in
Africa.
Finally, you predict a
collapse of the prescription
portion of Medicare. It's not
going to happen. America will
always look out for the
seniors, our most loved
citizens.


America and Pres
Bush will go down i
as taking a stand ag
terrorism. The terror
not going away. The
be eradicated. In thE
analysis, President ]
be labeled as one of
greatest presidents.

COMMENTARY


Plenty to be


thankful for

A t this time of Thanksgiving,
there are many things I am
thankful for. I am thankful that
I have a job that allows me to
support my family.
I am thankful for the health and
happiness of my friends and loved ones.
I am thankful for the freedoms I haye, and
for the citizen soldiers - past and present
- who have sacrificed to protect those
freedoms.
I am thankful I have never been called
upon to make that sacrifice personally.
I am also thankful for the opportunity to


praise those
who have
sacrificed and
returned safe
and to honor
in prayer and
reverence the
ones who
didn't make it
home.


Joseph DeAngelis


I am Phone: (386) 754-0424
thankful for jdeangelis@Jakecityreporter.com
my co-workers
who look out for me and my efforts, as I
look out for their best efforts.
I am thankful that today's paper is smaller
than yesterday's paper, because the amount
of Tryptophan I consumed in my turkey
dinner was enough to bring down a
charging rhino.
I am thankful that I work nights, because
after consuming said turkey, dressing,
cranberries and pie, it will take me that long
to roll out of bed in the morning.
I am thankful for my plain old Xbox game,
because it functioned normally this morning
when I turned it on. Those of you who stood
in line for hours for the new-and-improved
version may not have been so lucky.
I amthankful for my son, who gives me a
chance every day to see the world through
his innocent and often comical perspective.
There's nothing like watching a 4-year-old
play "NCAA Football" on the Xbox on
Thanksgiving Day - especially when he
plays better than you do.
I am thankful that my son will never rub
that in my face*- at least until Christmas
morning.
I am thankful that love means knowing
that even when you have to say you're
sorry, your loved ones still love you anyway.
I am thankful for my faith, and for the
little subtle reminders along the way with
bring me back to reality.
I am thankful that my friends and loved
ones in the path of hurricanes in 2004 and
2005 survived God's less-than-subtle
reminders of his power and might.
I am thankful that the National Hurricane
Center had the presence of mind to come
up with a backup plan for storm names _-
and that we're all getting to brush up on our
knowledge of the Greek alphabet without
pledging to a fraternity.
I am thankful for FEMA, for even though
we criticize and debate the way the
government has handled hurricane
recovery, they have still handled recovery.
Slow or not, most of the response from
FEMA has been compassionate and
welcome.
I am thankful to live in America, where
even if we don't agree with the President, or
his policies, we have the right to speak our
mind. That is as long as you're not parked
or camped along the public right-of-way in
front of his ranch in Texas.
I am thankful that I still have a month
until Christmas, which gives me ample time
to fight crowds for parking spaces, shopping
carts, that 'must-have' gift and still keep up
that jolly holiday spirit. Is it just me or have
holiday shoppers mutated into "demonic
elves" during the last decade or so? Don't
get between a grandma and her little angel's
favorite toy, or the halls won't be the only
thing getting decked.
I am thankful that gas prices are on the
decline. What once cost $2.79 now only
costs about $2.32 in Lake City. Ironically,
the same gallon of gas costs $1.98 in
Pensacola and $1.91 in Valdosta, but who's
counting. Oh that's right, the oil companies.
and some service stations are - all the way
to the bank.
I am thankful for Interstate highway
system, because it is now more
cost-effective to drive to Valdosta to fill my
tank than it is to purchase gas here.
And I am thankful that no matter who
wins the Florida State-Florida game this
weekend, I'll come out a winner. Go 'Noles
and Gators, and hopefully it'll be a safe and
entertaining game.
Just remember to be courteous, drive
safe, be charitable and let's all be thankful
for the conclusion of another safe year on
Jan. 1.

Slowing home appreciation in


some markets bodes well for buyers


By ALEX VEIGA
AP Business Writer

SAN DIEGO - When Jason
and Laura Bennett bought
their home two years ago, the
housing market was among
the hottest in the nation.
Would-be buyers made offers
as soon as "For, Sale" signs
went up, then bid even higher
in the frenzy to close the deal.
Now sellers, the Bennetts
have to chase buyers.
Less than two months after
the couple listed their two-bed-
room, two-bath condo, they've
had to slash the high-end of
their asking price by $10,000 to
keep up with other sellers in
the same complex who have
dialed back prices in hopes of
hooking a buyer.
"It'll be good for us when we
are on the buying end, because
there are a lot of motivated
sellers," said Laura Bennett,


33, a kindergarten teacher.
"But on the selling end, it's a lit-
tle bit harder for us because
there's so much available right
now and it's moving so slow."
The national housing mar-
ket has begun showing signs
of a slowdown, with the rate of
home price increases easing
this year in some areas where
double-digit percentage hikes
became almost routine in
recent years.
Experts say the trend
should continue next year, par-
ticularly if mortgage rates con-
tinue to trend upward, squeez-
ing some buyers' ability to
afford home loans.
"You can't sustain 20 percent
plus price growth," said Walter
Molony of the National
Association of Realtors, which

Federal agency takes over retirement


plans for Falcon Products beneficiaries


By JEANNINE AVERSA
AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON - A feder-
al agency announced
Tuesday that it has taken
responsibility for two pension
plans covering nearly 2,300
workers and retirees of
Falcon Products Inc., a
maker of institutional
furniture.
One of the pension plans
being taken over is for Falcon
Products. The other is for the
company's subsidiary,
Shelby Williams Industries
Inc., which makes chairs and
other commercial furniture.
The Pension Benefit
Guaranty Corp. said these


two companies were among
the subsidiaries of St. Louis-
based Falcon Products that
filed for bankruptcy protec-
tion in January of this year.
The PBGC, which insures
private defined-benefit pen-
sion plans, said that a bank-
ruptcy court has ruled that
the companies met all the cri-
teria under federal law to
transfer their pension liabili-
ties to the pension insurance
program.
The PBGC estimates that
together the two pension
plans being taken over are
44 percent funded, with
about $26 million in assets to
cover nearly $59 million in
benefit promises. The agency


said it will be liable for $31.6
million of the $33 million
shortfall.
The maximum annual ben-
efit for plans taken over in
2005 is $45,614 for workers
who wait until 65 to retire.
Workers who retire before,
65 get smaller benefits.
The pension takeovers
come as Congress scrambles
to advance legislation aimed
at shoring up private pension
plans. The Senate passed a
far-reaching pension over-
haul bill last week. The'
House is expected to vote
soon on its own measure.
The Senate vote came one
day after the PBGC said it
was running a deficit of


$22.8 billion. Bankrupt steel
and airline companies that
have transferred pension
responsibilities to the PBGC
have been a major factor in
the agency's swollen debt.
Private analysts worry that
a taxpayer-funded bailout
could happen at some point if
the private pension system
isn't overhauled by Congress.
PBGC's operations are
financed by insurance premi-
ums, which are paid by com-
panies that sponsor tradition-
al pension plans. It also earns
money from investments and
receives funds from pension
plans that it takes over. The
agency is not funded through
tax revenues.


Internet users went online for hurricane news


By ANICK JESDANUN
AP Internet Writer

NEW YORK - More than
half of U.S. Internet users
went online for news and
information about Hurricanes
Katrina and Rita, the vast
majority having visited the
Web sites of traditional news
organizations such as CNN
and MSNBC, a study finds.
Of the Americans who went
online for news, 14 percent
went to an international news
source such as the BBC's
Web site.
'The fact that you had this
U.S. domestic crisis and peo- *
ple turning to international.
news sources is interesting,"
said John Horrigan, associate


director for research at the
Pew Internet and American
Life Project, which released
the survey findings Thursday.
'There were certainly com-
mentators worldwide shocked
that this sort of thing was
going on in America, and I
would imagine some people
decided to see firsthand what
commentators and news sites
overseas were saying," he
said.
Though nearly three-quar-
ters of the online consumers
of hurricane news went to the
Web site of a major U.S. news
organization, 54 percent did
turn to an alternative source,
including international out-
lets, Web journals or nonprof-
it relief organizations. Some


people went to multiple
sources, so the totals exceed
100 percent.
According to Pew, 9 per-
cent of Internet users say they
made donations online for
hurricane relief and 5 percent
say they used the Internet to
organize their own relief
efforts.
Twenty-four percent sent
e-mails or instant messages
on the storm, and 9 percent
went online to check on the
safety of a loved one. Four
percent said they posted com-
ments, links or pictures to a
bulletin board, chat room or
Web journal.
The random, telephone-
based survey of 1,577 Internet
users was conducted in


September. The margin of
sampling effort is plus or
minus 3 percentage points.
Pew found little difference
in news consumption by dial-
up and high-speed broadband
users, even though online
tasks are typically done in
greater numbers by the
broadband set.
'This modest anomaly is
probably attributable to the
strong desire for lots of infor-
mation in the. face of such a
large natural disaster," the
report says. "Established
media organizations covered
Katrina and Rita heavily and it
is no surprise a large majority
of Internet users turned to
them online."

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & NATION FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2005


Next week, U.S. likely


will execute 1,000th


prisoner since 1977


By BRADLEY BROOKS
Associated Press

NEW YORK - "Let's do
it."
With those last words, con-
victed killer Gary Gilmore,
ushered in the modern era of
capital punishment in the
United States, an age of busy
death chambers that will
likely see its 1,000th execu-
tion in the coming days.
After a 10-year moratori-
um, Gilmore in 1977 became
the first person to be execut-
ed following a 1976 U.S.
Supreme Court decision that
validated state laws to reform
the capital punishment sys-
tem. Since then, 997 prison-
ers have been executed, and
next week, the 998th, 999th
and 1,000th are scheduled to
die.
Robin Lovitt, 41, will likely
be the one to earn that
macabre distinction next


Wednesday. He was convict-
ed of fatally stabbing a man
with scissors during a 1998
pool hall robbery in Virginia.
Ahead of Lovitt on death
row are Eric Nance, sched-
uled to be executed Monday
in Arkansas, and John Hicks,
scheduled to be executed
Tuesday in
Ohio. Both 'n ONTTH

Gilmore was
executed before a Utah fir-
ing squad, after a record of
petty crime, killing of a
motel manager and suicide.
attempts in prison. His life
was the basis for Norman
Mailer's book "The
Executioner's Song" and a
TV miniseries.
While his case was well-
known, most today could
probably not name even one
of the more than 3,400 pris-

owners - including 118 for-
eign nationals - on death
row in the U.S. In the last 28
years, the U.S. has executed
on average one person every
10 days.
The focus of the debate on
capital punishment was once
the question of whether it
served as a deter-
E WEB rent to crime. Today,
Ltyinfo.or the argument is
rojectorn more on whether
hekev.org the government can
be trusted not to
execute an innocent person.
Thomas Hill, an attorney
for a death row inmate in
Ohio who recently won a sec-
ond stay of execution, thinks
the answer is obvious.
"We have a criminal sys-
tem that makes mistakes. If
you accept that proposition,
that means you have to be
prepared for the inevitability
that some are .sentenced to
death for crimes they didn't

commit," said Hill.
,But advocates of the death
penalty argue that its oppo-
nents are elitist liberals who
are ignoring the real victims.
"Since 1999 we've had
100,000 innocent people mur-
dered in the U.S., but nobody
is planning on commemorat-
ing all those people killed,"
said Michael Paranzino,


president of Throw Away the
Key, a group that supports
the death penalty.
Race is also is a key ques-
tion in the debate. Since
1976, 58 percent of those
executed in the U.S. were
white while 34 percent were
black, according to the
Death Penalty Information
Center. But non-Latino


whites make up
75 percent of the U.S. popula-
tion, while non-Latino blacks
comprise just more than 12
percent, according to the
U.S. Census Bureau.
Some supporters say end-
ing the death penalty would
be harmful to poor minori-
ties, who are disproportion-
ately murder victims.


REUNION: Father, daughter meet


Continued From Page 1A

said I need to look for my dad
again. And Capt. Bruce
Charles asked me his name,
got on the Internet and came
up with a list of six and said
'start with these.' That night I
went home and the first
number on the list was his."
With a smile illuminating
her face, Betty said, "I was
excited, I was happy. It's kind
of hard to explain. I was just
really excited I guess that I
finally found him."
Jimmy T. Beasley said he
didn't know he had a daughter
until Betty called that night.
"She just asked me if I used
to work at a certain place in
Macon and I said yeah. And
she said I think I'm your
daughter," Beasley said. "I just
felt real surprised and
shocked. And I felt real bad,
because all these years I was-
n't there. We missed a lot of
years. It's just unbelievable


something like that,, for
36 years and you didn't know."
"I told her I'd come here
Thanksgiving Day," Jimmy
said.
"It was this morning, about
9:45 a.m.," Betty said. "I just
felt good."
Beasley's wife Dianne,
daughter Debbie Buenrostro,
35 and granddaughter
Victoria Buenrostro from
Alvin, Texas, accompanied
'him. Jimmy said he and his
wife also have twin boys, aged
31.
"He didn't know he had an
extra daughter," said Debbie
Buenrostro.
"I was from the same town
(Macon). I've been in
Houston, Texas, 27 years,"
Jimmy said. "After I moved, it
was hard to get a hold of me."
Dianne said Betty would
have been about six months
old before she and Jimmy


married.
"I'm here to support him.
That's the reason our, daugh-
ter and granddaughter came,
to support him," Dianne said.
"We're close."
When asked about meeting
her grandfather, aunt and
cousin, Erica said, "It's cool. I
mean I knew my mom had to
have some kind of family. It's
surprising but it's cool."
Her. cousin Victoria, 15,
said, "I kind of thought it was
weird at first, not that it's a bad
thing, but you see this on TV.
I was excited when I found out
we would come down here

"She was really worried

DINNER: More than 700 enjoy festivities


Continued From Page 1A
Thanksgiving dinner for five
years.
"We're up to 50 to-go (din-
ners) and 100 in-house," said
volunteer Terry Millikin,. at a
little past 1 p.m.
Some veterans from the
Lake City Veterans
Administration Domiciliary
Home enjoyed the sense of
community during dinner at
the church.
Robert Boehner said they
came because, "We have a
notice from a newspaperr
clipping that we are invited.
Seven others from the


Domiciliary came down and it
was real good. In fact, it's real
turkey, not the stuff that
comes out of the can."
Although Boehner and fel-
low veteran Donald Barnard
said it was their first year
attending the dinner, two other
veterans - Elma Decker and
Charles Miner - had
attended before.
It was the second year for
Decker, who stated simple rea-
sons for enjoying herself
there.
"The dinner was good and
the fellowship was good,"


Decker said. 'They didn't ask
no questions, they just said we
hope you come back and see
us."
Miner was all smiles and
enthusiasm.
"If everybody liked it as
well as I did they wouldn't
have room for anybody else,"
Miner said.
'"There are a lot of lonely
people around here. It's kind
of nice not to eat Thanksgiving
dinner by yourself," said Mark
Kirby, a volunteer for five
years, and First Presbyterian
member.


DELTA: 25th named storm not a threat

1,160 miles southwest of the
Azores Islands. It was nearly
stationary, but was expected to
eventually head north. Delta
was a large storm: tropical
storm-force winds stretched out
up to 230 miles from its center.
The record of 21 tropical
storms and hurricanes in a
season had stood since 1933,
but it was broken this year.
The 13 hurricanes so far this
year also broke the record of
12 set in 1969. Hurricane
Katrina became the most
expensive U.S. hurricane ever
and the deadliest one to hit


America since 1928.
The six-month Atlantic hur-
ricane season officially ends
Wednesday, but forecasters
warn that tropical storms and
hurricanes can develop in
December.
'There's 'no way of telling.
We could certainly have one,
maybe two by Christmas,"
Stewart said. "But these
things usually form way out
over the Atlantic, where
they're mainly a threat to
shipping. Rarely do they
make landfall."
Last year, Tropical Storm


Otto formed on the last day of
the season and lasted until
Dec. 3. According to the
National Hurricane Center,
the latest hurricane to strike
the U.S. was on Nov. 30, 1925,
near Tampa. The only months
on record not to have an
Atlantic hurricane are
February and April.

IRAQ: Troop withdrawal optimistic

are not final, said stresses on
the National Guard and
Reserves are also factors.
On Wednesday, Pentagon
officials would not confirm any
reduction plans. Defense
Department spokesman
Bryan Whitman said there has
been "very positive" develop-
ment.of Iraqi security forces,
and he added that "we plan for
every possible contingency,"
including a smaller coalition
force.
President Bush has refused
to set a withdrawal timetable,
and the administration has
consistently said U.S. troops
will remain as long as needed.
'Led by Vice President Dick
Cheney, the administration
has strongly opposed last
week's call by Rep. John
Murtha, D-Pa., for a U.S. with-


drawal within six months.
Public support for the war
has fallen in recent weeks, fed
by events such as the 2,000th
U.S. military death there and
allegations of the secret
imprisonment and torture of
some Iraqi prisoners by the
Iraqi government.
In recent days, some admin-
istration and military officials
have made positive-sounding
comments about a possible
withdrawal.
Lt. Gen. John Vines, chief of
the Multi-National Corps-Iraq,
said Iraqi security forces -
which number about 212,000
now - are making excellent
progress, an oft-cited precon-
dition for removing -U.S.
troops. He said 36 Iraqi battal-
ions are responsible for their
own areas of operation.


Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice told Fox
News on Tuesday that the U.S.
would probably not need to
maintain its current troop lev-
els in Iraq "very much longer."
Defense Secretary Donald H.
Rumsfeld told radio talk show
host Sean Hannity that the war
would wind down over the
next two years, and "we'll see
the coalition forces being able
to pare down and pass over
responsibility to Iraqi Security
Forces on an orderly basis"
after the Dec. 15 elections.
The Washington Post, quot-
ing anonymous sources,
reported Wednesday that the
Pentagon tentatively plans to
reduce the number of U.S.
forces in Iraq early next year-
by up to three of the
18 combat brigades. -

good one to help this

Williams said, "I think
Marty in that appointment
can do us some good. And
I'm very thankful that he

Martinez said the group
had its first meeting Nov. 16
in Washington, D.C., and
will have two or three region-
al meetings before the full
committee meets again in,
May 2006. He plans to begin
gathering information next
week.
He said he would look at
how people are reacting to
emergencies now.
"Based on my experience
working with the state and
other organizations, I will
attempt to -gather informa-

can be used on a national

was a surprise. Especially
when I go there and started
meeting people - the mayor
of Fort Worth (Texas) and
the police chief of Miami
,(Florida) - there was may-

country, from California to
Maine,"- Martinez said. "I'm
just a training director that
was invited to take part in
this."
Martinez said he is respon-
sible for training 7,000 per-
sonnel for 14 prisons and
three probation circuits in a
region that stretches from
Perry to Jacksonville and
down to Gainesville.
Of the relevance of the


committee, Martinez said, "I
think this is extremely
important considering what
happened in Florida and
Louisiana with the hurri-
canes and with a potential
pandemic with bird flu.
'"To be successful in
responding to these types of
events, you have to have the
entire community, not just
the state, federal or local offi-

anywhere in the 'U.S., if
something tragic was to

Is it really

worth the

hoopla?
In case you missed it
by the big picture and
two stories on this
page, or weren't at
Wal-Mart at 12:01 a.m.
Tuesday, Xbox 360 is now
here.
For a mere arm, you can
have the ultimate gaming
experience, complete with
360 graphics, 360 game play,
360 control and, in the case
of one unlucky buyer, a cozy
360 fire that spread through
her house.
Other reports have
indicated the 360 (soon just
to be called "The '60" by
some retro gaming nerds)
just doesn't work on regular,
television sets, even though
it was built for every
monitor available. Some
have said problems arise
when the 360 is connected
to a TV that's not
high-definition ready."
Pity, someone has enough
money to buy a new game
console, but not enough for
the expensive television
monitor that's sold
separately.
But then, there are other
reports (at right) which
claim that thi mai'line is -
truly the second-coming of
Jesus wrapped in a gaming
system.
Now, to be fair, I have to
admit I have not played the
360. Heck, I haven't even
played the original Xbox,
but it seems all this fuss
about a new Windows prod-
uct just overshadows that
Bill Gates (Microsoft's head
honcho) is one step closer
to ruling the world.
And that, my friends, is
not a good thing.
Microsoft already has
software available for Apple
Macintosh operating
systems, and those two, in
case you're not
techno-savvy, are in
competition with one
another.
Why all the hoopla? Is it
really worth the money in
the end?
The games are going to
cost you that leg you
thought you kept by
spending just your arm on
the system itself. The games
will cost upward of $60 a
pop right out of the gate.
And who are these people
who spent countless days
waiting in line to get their
dirty hands on the console?
Or the people who started
fighting about this new
technology that's supposed
to blow every other gaming
system out of the water?
Beats me, but I'll put
good money on them, not
seeing the light of day for
the next six months.
Honestly, when fights
break out, and Don King is
not involved in any way
shape or form, something's
wrong.
Have we really gotten
this out of hand when it
comes to entertaining
ourselves? What happened
to the good old days when
all it took was green
screen and a huge floppy
disk that ran at a speed of
about a megabyte of RAM?
And just think, in a couple
of months when Sony
releases Playstation 3 (or
PS III), the madness will
start again.

Thousands of hard-core gamers converge Sunday inside an aircraft hangar 40 miles north of Los Angeles, to be among the
first to try and purchase Microsoft's new Xbox 360 video-game console, for the so-called 'Zero Hour' desert launch party that
Microsoft hosted at sunset on Sunday and ended at 12.01 a.m. on Tuesday, the official North American launch date.

a gamr's del igi


By MATT SLAGLE
AP Technology Writer

It only took Microsoft Corp. two
tries to get it right in the video game
console business.
The new Xbox 360, is a stylish, pow-
erful improvement: compared, to the,
previous model that largely fulfills the
company's promise of making a next-
generation game system that can
serve as an entertainment hub.
There are two flavors of Xbox 360,
but I can only recommend the pricier
$399.99 version. It includes a remote
control, a headset enabling you to
chat with buddies in online multiplay-
er games, a comfortable wireless con-
troller, and most importantly, a,
20-gigabyte detachable hard drive.
For $100 less you could buy the
basic "Core System" sans a hard
drive, but it's not a very good value.
Not only do you lose out on the disk
storage, you get a controller that's
tethered to the system. There's no
remote, headset or other accessories
that would easily top $100 if
purchased separately.
Regardless, you'll have to buy the
games separately - neither system'
includes any beyond a few demos and
the simple board 'and puzzle games
you can download via a robust, much-
improved Xbox Live multiplayer
gaming network.
For a system that so seamlessly
melds the worlds of online and off-line
gaming, Wi-Fi should have been
included; instead it's an extra
accessory.
The 360 is a pleasing visual contrast
to its decidedly garish, hulking
predecessor.
Instead of a black behemoth with
lime-green accents, the 360 is a slimn
off-white and can either stand on its


side like a per-
sonal computer
tower or be
stacked horizon-
tally with the rest
of your audio-
visual gear.

Good thing I was .

At the con- .

memory, eight times more than the
original Xbox, as well as a- custom
graphics chip.
The machine's power was evident
the moment I turned it on, and the
graphics are the best looking I've.
seen on any platform.
"Project Gotham Racing 3" cap-
tures the blurred sensation of barrel-
ing down race tracks with fluid photo-
realism. It's like watching a real race
on television but ;you're actually
controlling the outcome.
Other games I tested were equally
stunning, notably the World War II
first-person shooter "Call of Duty 2,"
where you can actually see Russian
soldiers exhaling as they battle Nazis
on frozen battlefields. In "NBA2K6,"

Of the 18 games available at launch,
none of them really stands out as a

for older-generation systems.
I wish Microsoft had paired the

Xbox just yet.


Gates: Xbox will eventually tie in to


broader online Microsoft offerings


By ALLISON LINN
AP Business Writer

. SEATTLE - Anyone who
snagged one of Microsoft
Corp.'s new Xbox 360s at its
Tuesday debut will likely see
the new video game console as
just that -. a medium for
spending hours playing the
likes of "Halo 2" and "Project
Gotham Racing 3."
But executives at Microsoft
see video games as just the
beginning. Xbox 360 is at the
center of a strategy that will
also eventually tie in elements
of Microsoft's new online initia-
tive, called Windows Live, says
company Chairman Bill Gates.
Gates said Monday that he
expects Xbox Live, Microsoft's

Microsoft already

like virtual armor or
other game-related
items, to eventually
work with Windows Live, so
people could use a single
account to pay for offerings
there, too.
"The PC and the Xbox are


very complementary," Gates
told The Associated Press.
Stores around the country
were selling the Xbox consoles
to the first customers at mid-
night. In midtown Manhattan,
200 people lined up around a
block in the rain outside a Best

Injuries sink high hopes for Florida, FSU


Saturday's football game
at the Swamp matches a
pair of 7-3 programs.
By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Florida and
Florida State opened the season with
lofty expectations that increased
significantly after huge early wins.
The Seminoles started the year
ranked No. 14 and moved up three
spots following a 10-7 victory over
Miami on Labor Day. The Gators
opened at No. 10 and were up five
spots after a 16-7 win over Tennessee


Bes





the


on Sept. 17.
The programs appeared ready to
return to the nation's elite after several
sub-par seasons.
Then injuries set in - numerous
ones at positions that crippled both
teams - and now they're playing a
somewhat meaningless game
Saturday at The Swamp.
'The fact is, you just can't be great
every year," Seminoles coach Bobby
Bowden said. "It just don't work that
way. I think it kind of goes in cycles."
No. 19 Florida (7-3) and No. 23
Florida State (7-3) are definitely
enduring down cycles - mostly
because of the injuries.
The Gators lost receiver Andre


Caldwell (broken leg) and defensive
end Ray McDonald (knee) during
their victory against Tennessee.
They also lost cornerback Vernell
Brown (broken leg) for the season
Nov. 5 against Vanderbilt and had sev-
eral players dinged up throughout the
year, including receivers Chad
Jackson, Dallas Baker and Jemalle
Cornelius and running back DeShawn
Wynn.
'Those factors have played a major
role in the transition of the offense,"
first-year Florida coach Urban Meyer
said.
The Seminoles have lost two in a
row but still will play in the Atlantic
Coast Conference title. game next


Saturday. They had even more
devastating injuries.
Guard Matt Meinrod started the
first five games before breaking his
leg. Three games later, his replace-
ment, John Frady, was done for the
year with a shoulder injury.
Making matters worse, left tackle
Cory Niblock sustained a season-
ending knee injury on the last play
against Clemson two weeks ago.
Right tackle David Overmyer is the
only offensive lineman who has
started every game for Florida State
this season.

Packers, Quincy are

Memorial Bowl champs


New look featured
league teams and
not all-star squads.
From staff reports

The Zaxby's Raiders man-
aged to do something no
other team had done against
the Quincy Eagles in the
Memorial Bowl: Score two
touchdowns.
But it still wasn't enough, as
the Eagles scored 30 straight
points to defeat the Raiders in
the Midget Championship,
30-14, on Wednesday.
In the late game, The
Subway Packers of Lake City
came from behind to beat the
Quincy Lions 16-13 to win the
Junior Midget Championship.
The Packers broke on top,
first on a four-yard touchdown
run by Trey Marshall and a
kicked extra point by Michael
Fluellen. The Lions made it
8-7 at the half with a 60-yard
touchdown run by Mario
Gardner and a PAT-run by
Dallas Williams.
Williams added a one-yard
touchdown run in the fourth
quarter, as the Lions .moved
on top 13-8.
Rakeem Battle broke loose
on a 57-yard touchdown run
for the Packers and Fluellen's
extra-point kick completed the
scoring.
In the Midget game,
Michael Still scored three


touchdowns - including one
on an electrifying 55-yard run
in the third quarter - and
kicked three extra points as
the Eagles completed their
undefeated season. Quincy
has not lost a game in two
years.
Zaxby's scored the game's,
first points, as the Raiders ate
up the first seven minutes of
the clock. Tamartryiee
Williams scored the first of his
two touchdowns on a one-yard
plunge to mark the first time
Quincy had trailed in the
Memorial Bowl.
But the big-play Eagles
came back, scoring the tying
touchdown in just under three
minutes. Jamal Williams com-
pleted the drive with a 4-yard
touchdown run to knot the
score, and Still gave the
Eagles the lead for good on
his extra point.
After the Eagles stopped
the Raiders on their next pos-
session, Still returned the
punt 26 yards to the Zaxby's
26. He then scored on the next
play, breaking to the outside
to make it 14-6. The Raiders
managed to stop Quincy on

IRVING, Texas - Maybe all Ron
Dayne needed was a chance.
Filling in for injured Tatum Bell,
Dayne rumbled 55 yards on the
second play of overtime and Jason
Elam followed with a 24-yard field
goal to give the Denver Broncos a
24-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys
on Thursday in a game that lived up to
its billing.
Denver (9-2) never trailed in
winning its fourth straight, but it
wasn't easy. The Broncos had the ball
13 minutes less than the Cowboys in
regulation mainly because their
vaunted running game struggled,
Jake Plummer threw his first
interception since Week 2 and a
questionable ruling by officials on a
fourth-quarter fumble recovery by


Dallas led to the tying touchdown.
The Cowboys (7-4) ended a three-
game winning streak and, like all their
other losses, saw this one decided
late. Their four losses are by a total of
13 points, with the last two coming on
game-ending field goals.
Dallas missed a chance to go ahead
when Billy Cundiff missed a 34-yard
field goal with 7:42 left in regulation.
The Broncos won the overtime coin
toss and opened with a pass to Charlie
Adams. Then, on second-and-3 from
the 39, Dayne bowled through the left
side of the line, pulled away from a
would-be tackler around the 50 and
kept going until he was dragged down
from behind at the 6.
Denver went straight to Elam.
Dayne finished with 98 yards on
seven carries.

Falcons 27, Lions 7
DETROIT - Michael Vick's arm,
Alge Crumpler's hands and Warrick
Dunn's legs were too much for the


Detroit Lions.
Vick threw two touchdown passes
to Crumpler and Dunn ran for
116 yards to lead the Atlanta Falcons
to a 27-7 victory over Detroit.
Atlanta (7-4) took advantage of
playing the lowly Lions (4-7), closing
the gap behind NFC South co-leaders
Carolina and Tampa Bay.
Vick was 12-for-22 for 146 yards
with two TDs and an interception.
Crumpler tied career highs with
seven receptions and two
touchdowns, and had 104 yards
receiving. Dunn went over the
100-yard mark on just 17 carries.
The Lions went through three
quarterbacks.
Joey Harrington started and was
6-of-13 for 61 yards with an intercep-
tion. Jeff Garcia entered the game late
in the first half and completed 14 of 24
passes for 154 yards with a TD and an
interception. Rookie Dan Orlovsky,
who got a chance to play late in the
game, was 5-of-ll for 43 yards and,
fittingly, a fumble with 15 seconds left.

Race week

NEXTEL CUP
Last race:Tony Stewart cruised to his sec-
ond NASCAR championship in four years at
the Ford 400. Needing only to run a clean race
at Homestead-Miami Speedway, he hovered
just outside the top 10 arid away. from any
potential danger. He ended up 15th, winning
the title by 35 points over Greg Biffle, who
won the race for the second straight year by
besting teammate Mark Martin in a door-to-
door finish. Stewart became the 14th driver in
NASCAR history with more than one cham-
pionship and joined four-time winner Jeff
Gordon as the only active drivers with multi-
ple titles.

BUSCH SERIES
Last race: Martin Truex Jr. survived a series
of setbacks to finish seventh in the Ford 300
at Homestead-Miami Speedway and grab his
second straight Busch title on a night when
Ryan Newman raced to another victory.
Truex, who will move up to Cup full time next
season, crashed during his qualifying attempt
and had to switch to a backup car, which
meant he was forced to start from the rear of
the 43-car field. He also had a vibration caused
by a faulty rear tire that put him a lap down.

Last race:Ted Musgrave finished 20th in the
rain-postponed Ford 200 at Homestead and
edged Dennis Setzer for his first truck, cham-
pionship. The 49-year-old Musgrave became
NASCAR's oldest champion, claiming the title
after finishing second in 2001 and third the last
three years. Todd Bodine won his third con-
secutive race and finished third in the points

Jerry Ogburn, Randall

Starke, when it was discov-
ered the bowl first tried to get
Englewood High. "We didn't
want to be second choice,"
Brown said.

three-yard touchdown run
with a pass to Joe Coombs.
Columbia finished 11-0, but

The Lake City Reporter
weighed in: "... probably the
greatest all-around squad pro-
duced in Columbia's long and
spectacular football career."
Captain Eddie Joe Long
was one of 44 players named
All-Southern, a first for CHS.
He scored five touchdowns


and kicked 15 PATs and one
field goal.

game in the snow. "The
Tigers ran into a hurricane,"
read the newspaper report.

CHS 0 (Thursday).
Columbia stumbled its way to
the end of a 2-4-2 season.
1977 - Godby 40, CHS

INJURIES: Sub-par seasons continue

our biggest liabilities being the
offensive line," Bowden said.
"It was that way last year. Our
offensive line stayed beat up
all year. I think it goes in
cycles like that sometimes, but
it definitely does hurt."
The Seminoles have been
hit hard on the other side of
the ball, too.
Sophomore cornerback J.R.
Bryant will make his fourth
start in place of Gerard Ross,
who is out with a groin injury.
Tony Carter, the other starter,
has been slowed by a shoulder
injury. Antonio Cromartie had
been a projected starter, but
he was lost for the year due to
a preseason knee injury.
Defensive ends Kamerion
Wimbley, who- leads the team
with 7'/2 sacks, and D.J. Norris,
who had his first start against
Clemson, are doubtful with
knee injuries.
"We're always going to have
high expectations and confi-
dence about ourselves, but we
need a win," Bryant said.
"We're not really too much


worried about a losing streak,
but we really do need a win."
One bit of good news for the
Seminoles is that starting
tailback Leon Washington will
be back in the lineup after an
ankle sprain sidelined him for
the last two games.
The bad news is Washington
may not be at full speed. He
ran well straight ahead in prac-
tice but had difficulty cutting.
"Leon's. got a chance,"
Bowden said. "Last week, he
couldn't have done it."
Bowden said the NCAA's
scholarship limit of 85 has
contributed to depth problems
around the country.
'"We've got 119 I-A schools.
Out of 119 of us, I'll bet you
100 are fighting an attrition
battle," Bowden said. "You've
probably got 19 lucky teams.
Boy, they're lucky. They've
kept their offensive line
healthy all year, they've kept
their running backs healthy,
and they're probably playing
for Southern Cal and Texas."
Bowden recalled the days


when teams could have up to
120 scholarship players and
Florida State had plenty of
starting-quality substitutes.
'To be honest with you, we
better be thankful we're able
to play freshmen," Bowden
said. "If we couldn't I don't
know what we'd do."
Florida State has played 12
true freshmen and 15 redshirt
freshmen, including quarter-
back Drew Weatherford. He
won the starting job after
junior Wyatt Sexton was
scratched when he came down
with Lyme disease during the
summer.
Weatherford is the nation's
top freshman passer with
2,440 yards. He also leads the
Atlantic Coast Conference
with 244 yards passing per
game. He has thrown
15 touchdowns, but-also has
15 interceptions.
Weatherford's production
has gone down, though, as
injuries have taken a toll on
the offensive line and its
ability to protect him.


MEMORIAL: Youth football season ends
Continued From Page 1B


James was stopped short of
a first down on fourth-and-
one from the Quincy 43.
That set the stage for
Still's run, where he broke
through the middle, evad-
ed two tacklers, went wide
to the outside and was free.
His extra point made the
score 22-6.
A pass interference call
set up Quincy's next score,
a 15-yard touchdown run
by Still.
Jahmarcus Shade
recovered two fumbles in
the fourth' quarter for the
Raiders, and Kenneth
Shade connected on a
30-yard halfback pass to
James to set up Shade's
own 26-yard run one play
later.


Finally, on fourth-and-
goal from the 1 with less.
than a minute left in the
game, Williams scored his
second touchdown and
Kenneth Shade kicked the
extra point to conclude the
scoring.
At halftime of the Midget

ARIES (March 21-April
19): Do the work yourself if
you want things to get done.
You will have a hard time
appeasing friends and family.
You can get ahead if you push
hard. Career changes look
promising. -***
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Love and romance are in
a high cycle today, so don't
hold back. Travel or get
together with people you find
interesting. Overindulging
should be avoided, and so
should overindulgent people.

GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Your focus should be on
home, family and making
improvements. An older rela-
tive will have some very good
suggestions. Money or a gift
appears to be coming your
way. -**
CANCER (June 21-July
22): You will be drawn
toward people who are a little
bit different or who live an
unusual lifestyle. Travel back
to some of the places you
remember fondly, and look up


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Word

some of the people you would
like to hook up with again.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Don't take drastic measures if
you want to be successful.
Have a strategic plan in place

you have secured the support
you need to follow through
with your plans. -***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Don't stick around
where emotional turmoil is
likely to break out. Trouble at

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Reflect on what has
taken place and make a deci-
sion based on what you've
learned. You have to re-evalu-

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): It's time to make a finan-

Someone you care about may

end, you will learn something
very valuable. ****-
SAGITI'ARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21): You will have
many things going for you,

Don't let anyone get away
with 'bullying you into not
doing something you really
want to do. -**
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): You can't be too
soft or let people get away
with doing less when you
deserve more. Ask if you want
something, and refuse to
make settlements that don't
cover what you've been
through. Love is in a high
cycle. *****
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. , 18): You will have
enough to contend with today
without adding more to the
equation. Troubleshooting
will be your middle name, but
once you have done what you
must, you will feel relieved.
Change is sometimes
necessary. -**
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): You will be up and down
emotionally, but that doesn't
necessarily mean things will
be bad. Love is apparent, and
if you put your time and effort
into a personal relationship,
you will be able to establish
where you stand and what you
have to look forward to. ***-


DEAR ABBY


Military mom keeps marriage

together for sake of her kids


DEAR ABBY: My
husband,' "Kirk," accompa-
nied me overseas for an
extended military tour. He
has been an excellent care
provider for my two children,
ages 2 and 7. He does -all
kinds of activities with them
that I cannot because of my
work schedule.
I recently found out that
Kirk has been having an
affair and stealing from me
to fund his activities. Initially,
he lied about the whole thing
in counseling, but when
cornered he confessed. Kirk
has since promised to end
the affair, and I have taken
precautions with my
finances.
We have agreed to stay
together until we get back to
the states (about six
months), and then we will
file for divorce. My friends
think that I'm crazy to keep
him around, but there is no
better person here to take
care of our children - and
changing my hours is not an
option. We never argue in
front of the kids and are
actually on amicable terms.
Am I crazy? - HURTING
OVERSEAS

DEAR HURTING: Are
you crazy? Crazy like a fox!
You are behaving in a
manner that is mature and
rational, and I commend you
for it.


Abigail Van Buren
ww.dearabby.corn

DEAR ABBY: My
14-year-old daughter has
been shaving her arms for
the past six months because
she says they are "hairy." I
have tried my best to talk her
out of it.
I asked advice from a
neighbor, and she said I
should forbid her from doing
it because she can get skin
cancer. Is that true? -
CONFUSED MOM,
CALEXICO, CALIF.

DEAR CONFUSED
MOM: If that were true,
every man and woman who
shaved other parts of their
bodies would be suffering
from skin cancer. However, I
would discourage her from
shaving her arms because
there are better ways to deal
with the problem. Using a
depilatory wax to remove the
hair would take it out by the
roots and cause it to
eventually grow in more
sparsely. And using a
depilatory cream would
"wipe" away the hair, leaving


less of a visible stubble than
shaving does. She might also
consider bleaching the hair
on her arms, which would
make it less noticeable.

DEAR ABBY: My
mother-in-law recently
decided to move into an
assisted-living facility.
Because of limited space,
she needs to get rid of
excess baggage, so she had a
rummage sale. She has also
begun to return gifts she has
received to those who gave
them to her. I find that rude
and insulting, as each gift
was given for a reason, and
getting them back feels like
rejection.
A good friend of mine feels
it's an honor to get those
gifts back rather than see
these treasures in a
rummage sale or given to
someone who doesn't
understand the meaning
behind the gift. My question:
Who's right? - CINDY IN
MINNESOTA

DEAR CINDY: She is.
And my question to you is,
why are you looking for
rejection? Your mother-in-
law has to downsize, and I'd
say she's doing it in the most
sensitive way possible.

By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com T he front yard of the Catholic Charities office on Burk Avenue was busy with activity Thursday morning. Children with sometimes two, three or four bags of food followed adults car rying turkeys, hams, bread and other food to their vehicles. Another area of the yard had people sitting at tables filing paperwork and then there were several people wearing orange T-shirts, stack ing food, bagging food or removing food from trucks. Their mission was simple and written out on the backs of their shirts: in 6 Americans struggle with hunger and today they were volunteering their time and efforts to make sure local families didnt have to struggle with hunger during the Thanksgiving holiday. Catholic Charities held its annual Thanksgiving Feast For Families Thursday where the organization, its staff and volun teers, and local sponsors were working to provide an estimated 510 local families with Thanksgiving foods. Suzanne Edwards, chief operating officer of the Lake City office of Catholic Charities, said the 510 baskets represents the highest amount of baskets given away during the 14-year history of the program. In 2012 they gave away 412 baskets. The event began yesterday and will con tinue today as part of a collaboration between Catholic Charities and the Columbia County School District. Catholic Charities asked the school district to provide a list of the most needy families who the items were given to. Each basket is size-appropriate for the partic ular family and contains everything thats neces sary to make a complete Thanksgiving meal. The need is ever-increasing, Edwards said. This has been the most difficult year yet I guess. The economy has gone on and on. Its affecting small to medium sized busi nesses that help fund this event. Edwards said they were giving the food away from 7 a.m. 5 p.m. Thursday and from 7:30 a.m. 4 p.m. today. She said although they didnt start giving the food away until 8 a.m. Thursday, families began arriving at 6:45 a.m. Angela Toole, who moved to the area from Dunnellon, said the basket is a blessing. Getting this food is very helpful right now because me and my husband, we both lost our jobs. Were struggling at this point in time but this is helping us a lot. Its one less thing that I have to worry about, she said. My kids are half-grown so they eat a little bit more than normal now, but this is very help ful. Im actually very grateful that people like this are here to help out. Edwards, who is also a member of the Lake City Kiwanis Club, gave club president Teena Peavey a hug as the two talked about partici pating in and sponsoring the event. This is exactly what Kiwanis is all about helping our children in our community, they are our next generation, Edwards said. When children have to go to bed hungry, or worry about where their next meal is coming from, we as Kiwanians, community members and as human beings, need to step-up and help our neighbor get back to basics. Other event sponsors also helped give out food while on a break from their jobs.

Kennedy, featuring every thing from makeshift memorials to marching drummers to discus sions about who else might have been in on the killing. But in the place where the pres idents motorcade passed through and shots rang out on Friday, Nov. 22, 1963, a solemn ceremony on the 50th anniversary of his death designed to avoid such distractions will include brief remarks by the mayor and the tolling of church bells.

County Manager Dale Williams acknowledged, given the state of dis repair at the current plant, the current Ellisville plant could not sustain an addi tional $250,000 expense. He recommended lending the money to the plant understanding, and maybe even knowing, you may not ever get repaid. But it is the quickest and easiest way to resolve your problem.

The news is significant for both the theme park and the area. Since open-ing in 2011, the park has drawn many guests from families who are staying in Orlando and visiting the area’s large theme parks like Disney or Universal. A brightly-colored Legothemed hotel is expected to draw more visitors for longer stays to Winter Haven, a small city in Polk County about 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Walt Disney World. “This shifts us from a single day visit to a multi-day destination,” said Adrian Jones, the gen-eral manager of Legoland Florida. This will be the world’s fifth Legoland Hotel; there is currently Lego-themed lodging in California, England and Denmark. Another hotel is under construction in Malaysia.Marijuana sent to couple’s home KEY LARGO — Deputies in the Florida Keys will destroy eleven pounds of marijuana mis-takenly shipped to a rental home owned by a Key Largo couple. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office did not identify the couple who called them on Wednesday after finding the drugs inside two locked suitcases. The couple told authorities a box was shipped to a vacation rental home they own in Louisiana in July, so they told their house-keeper to return it. But the package wound up again at the home. When the couple visited the rental home, they opened the box and found two locked blue suitcases inside. Thinking they were someone’s lost luggage, the couple put the suitcas-es in their truck and didn’t open them until they got home to Key Largo. Inside were two sealed bags full of marijuana.FSU QB Winston gave DNA to police TALLAHASSEE — Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston volun-teered a DNA sample last week to the Tallahassee Police Department as part of the sexual assault inves-tigation, his attorney said Thursday, adding that he believes Winston will be exonerated and any DNA does not prove guilt. Winston’s lawyer Tim Jansen said at a press con-ference Thursday morn-ing that the sex between his client and the accuser “absolutely” was consensu-al, but then retreated when pressed by reporters who asked him to confirm what he just said. “I’m not saying that,” Jansen said. “I’m saying the eyewitnesses that were there will verify that any mate-rial that was found, or any evidence that was found, is consistent with him (doing) nothing wrong.” ESPN first reported Wednesday night that Winston’s DNA matched a sample taken from the underwear of the accuser. Jansen said he has not seen the results of the DNA tests and found out watching television. “All I know is it’s very suspicious that the only news reporting agency that (State Attorney) Willie Meggs met privately with yesterday in his office was the one that reported that last night on television,” Jansen said. “And that would be ESPN.” Meggs denied that he — or anyone in his office — released the DNA infor-mation to the media. He called the release of the information “problematic.” He said he did not know who the source of informa-tion was for ESPN. Cosby: laughs are far from finished NEW YORK I t was 30 years ago when he last filmed a concert special. Now he’s gone and done it again. “Bill Cosby: Far From Finished” finds this king of comedy onstage in Cerritos, Calif., where he rules for the 90-minute special airing Saturday on Comedy Central (8 p.m. EST). Still, it’s fair to ask: Why so long a break, and why now for his return? “There’s a gap,” says Cosby during an interview this week, “between people knowing what I do and really believing that I still do that — and wondering what it is I really do.” This audience-awareness gap, he believes, is among the younger demo drawn to Comedy Central. He aims to school those viewers in the principle established by his 1963 debut album: “Bill Cosby Is a Very Funny Fellow ... Right!” Since the early 1960s, Cosby has had a stellar career, including records, books, films and social advo-cacy. And, of course, television, where he broke the color barrier in the first of his many series, “I Spy,” in the ‘60s, and scored stratospheric success with “The Cosby Show” (1984-92). Now, at age 76, he keeps up a busy itinerary doing the thing that got him started: being onstage say-ing things all sorts of people find funny and true.Wis. collector puts rare comics on auction block STEVENS POINT — Holy auction block, Batman! Comic book collector and industry legend Maggie Thompson of Wisconsin has decided to put some 500 pieces of her personal collec-tion up for auction over the next few months. The first wave alone includes the first issue of “The Avengers,” “Journey Into Mystery” No. 83, which features the first appearance of Thor, the first issue of “The Incredible Hulk” and the origi-nal cover art for the fourth issue of “Conan the Barbarian.” News of the auction has comic lovers’ wallets tingling. The books are in exceptional condition; auctioneers expect the total collection could fetch $1 million by the time sales wrap up next year.Lance Armstrong settles $3M insurance lawsuit AUSTIN — A day before he was scheduled to give sworn testimony about his use of performance-enhanc-ing drugs, Lance Armstrong reached a settlement Wednesday with an insurance company that was seeking $3 million in performance bonuses it paid him from 1999 to 2001. Nebraska-based Acceptance Insurance sued Armstrong in Texas earlier this year after he admitted he doped during a career in which he won the Tour de France seven times. Acceptance attorney Mark Kincaid and Armstrong attorney Tim Herman declined to disclose details of the settlement, but both said the case was “resolved to the mutual sat-isfaction of the parties.” The settlement means Armstrong will not need to show up for a Thursday deposition in Austin.

Columbia High School prin-cipal. “We’re doing the vet-erans salute as part of the football game.” The game begins at 7:30 p.m. as CHS takes on Bartram Trail High School. Tickets for the game are $8 each, the price set by FHSAA. “There are no passes, but we will allow any active duty service members who are in uniform to come in free,” Widergren said. “We’ll have the American Legion Color Guard who will be out to present colors for our national anthem, we’ve got a flyover with a couple of Lima Lima pilots and at half-time we’re going to have a show put on by the band with our leadership dedicating songs, poems and things like that to our veterans.” On Veterans Day students had a holiday away from class-es and Widergren said school officials and students did not have a chance to honor local veterans properly. Catholic Charities in reaching out to help the community where we all work, live and go to church and we’re proud to do so,” said Don Winkleman, TD Bank vice president. The Olive Garden restaurant in Lake City, an event sponsor, also had representatives on-site volunteering their ser-vices. “We are really honored to be a part of this,” said Beth Martin, an Olive Garden employee. “We donated a lot of bags so that people could put all their canned goods in for their Thanksgiving din-ners and we also contrib-ute to the food harvest. Once a week we donate all of our soups, sauces, meatballs and anything we can do to help. We’re really happy to be a part of the community as a new restaurant and help where ever we can.” Dorothy Spradley, Columbia School District Volunteer/education marketing coordinator, said Columbia County students donated canned goods for two weeks to contribute to the effort. She estimated up to 200 students would help dis-tribute the foods during the two-day event. “The students know about collecting the canned goods for those families who are a little bit less fortunate during the holidays by giving to others,” she said. “The other side of that is when they come and help with the distribution it’s a humbling, eye-open-ing experience for our children and I think they need to see that side of it.” Catholic Charities is requesting $1 donations during Friday’s event. The donations are tax deductible. For more information call 754-9180. state funeral and host a musical tribute that will be closed to the public, and in Washington, where President Barack Obama will meet privately at the White House with leaders and volunteers from the Kennedy-established Peace Corps program. “It’s 50 years later and it’s also a moment to look forward to the future,” said Thomas Putnam, execu-tive director of the library, which usually doesn’t observe the anniversary. “We want our tone to be respectful and we want it to have a certain reverence, but we also want it to be hopeful and end on this notion of what JFK stood for.” The committee convened by current Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings to plan the city’s event wanted to focus “in a positive way more on the legacy of President Kennedy,” said Ron Kirk, a former mayor and member of the panel. About 5,000 tickets were issued for the free ceremo-ny in Dealey Plaza, which is flanked by the Texas School Book Depository building where sniper Lee Harvey Oswald perched on the sixth floor in 1963. Friday’s event will include readings from the president’s speeches by author David McCullough. In a nod to Kennedy’s mili-tary service, the U.S. Naval Academy Men’s Glee Club will perform and there will be an Air Force flyover. A moment of silence will be held at 12:30 p.m., when the president was shot. There was no shortage of events in Dallas this year marking the anniversary, including panels with jour-nalists and others who wit-nessed the events of the day, special concerts and museum exhibits. John Judge, executive director of the Coalition on Political Assassinations, first came to Dealey Plaza to mark the fifth anniversa-ry of JFK’s death in 1968. Judge’s group, which believes Kennedy’s death was part of a conspiracy, usually gathers on the plaza’s “grassy knoll” for a moment of silence at 12:30 p.m. Since it’ll be blocked off this year, Judge says he’s reached a “livable” agreement with the city in which they’ll gather a few blocks away and move to the plaza after the official ceremony ends. The group has made T-shirts for the occasion with the slogan, “50 years in denial is enough” and an image like that of Kennedy on the half-dollar coin, except with a bullet hole in his head and blood. “It was meant to be shocking because we think that not solving his murder was shocking,” Judge said. He added about 10 members of his group will attend the official ceremony. Other events being held Friday in Dallas include a ceremony at Parkland Memorial Hospital, where Kennedy was declared dead, to lower the U.S. flag to half-staff. In Fort Worth, the city’s Chamber of Commerce will host a breakfast at the hotel where Kennedy gave his last speech and spent the last night of his life. In Boston, the private musical tribute will fea-ture Paul Winter, who performed at the White House with his jazz sextet during Kennedy’s presi-dency, along with a U.S. Navy choir and James Taylor. Other notable guests at the event, which will be streamed on the library’s website, include Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who is sched-uled to read quotes from Kennedy’s speeches. ANNIVERSARYContinued From 1AWHERE WERE YOU?Shirely Willis was in her junior year at Howard University when she heard about President Kennedy’s assassination. “I was at the hairdresser when I heard the news,” Willis said. “Everyone was in shock, people started crying. No one could believe it. First there was sadness. We thought, ‘maybe it’s a mistake.’” Elston Hawkins was stationed at a US naval base in Argentia, New Foundland as an E-5 when Kennedy was assas-sinated. “We heard it first on Canadian radio. Everyone was in shock, we couldn’t believe it. Our commander-in-chief was shot... I’m kind of torn [about conspiracy theories.] I’m not sure there wasn’t something behind that. I could easily be convinced it was a conspiracy.” Beverly Wiseman was in 10th grade in Roseville, Mich. when her school’s staff announced Kennedy’s death over the school’s intercom. Her father was the mayor of Roseville dur-ing Kennedy’s term and intro-duced Wiseman to the then democratic candidate. “He was a caring man. He cared about the people and wanted to be out with them... When we heard what happened, everybody was crying. People were afraid the Russians were coming.” Ed Hogg was in Celeveland, Ohio when he saw news of Kennedy’s assassination on television. “I couldn’t believe it at first. I had a tough time accepting it. Everybody liked him... I thought he was a strong president, especially after he stood up to the Russians during the Cuban Missile Crisis.” Wiseman Willis Hogg Hawkins Q Associated Press Writer Cara Rubinsky in Boston contributed to this report.

The replacement facility would operate at a slightly smaller capacity than the current one, but would be built with future improve-ments in mind. “When those [future improvements] are made, the door is open to consider the DOT and their operations as a client,” Williams said. The replacement plant will cost an estimated $750,000. About two thirds are already covered by a state grant with the rest being covered by the loan. Commissioner Ron Williams championed the plant, arguing that it was vital to the future development of the I-75 and US 441 inter-change should the county wish to see economic devel-opment similar to US 90.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Encouraging Karzai’s contempt Q Tampa Tribune The myth of John Kennedy H overing over the remembrances of John F. Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his assassination is the ghost of a life that is more myth than reality, more revisionist than factual -one that has left him per-haps forever stranded in sort of an historic limbo between inspirational and second-rate tawdriness. Truth, it seems, is always lost or at least sublimated in the grief we feel over such an event and the loss of potential when a promising future is cut short. It tends to allow us to forgive or at least overlook the deficiencies that were there for all of us to see if we had looked. But we are often too embarrassed to admit our negligence. Then should we remember how naive we were about this handsome young war hero? Do we want to accept the facts about his health, his marriage, his carnal appetites, his frequent lack of compassion and social conscience, his dedication to noblesse oblige? Do we sweep under the rug his playboy boredom with elected office during a time when he could have been learning and preparing for bigger things? ... Nearly everything we as part of the electorate were told in 1960 about this wealthy scion of an Irish-American family was pretty much a lie. He was not in good health. His marriage was a sham. He was utterly uninterested in the work-ings of Congress as reflected by his abysmal attendance record in both the House and the Senate. He actually had not written the book manipulated into a best-seller by his father and that won him the Pulitzer Prize. He was anything but a lib-eral. He had little interest in civil rights other than in what advocacy of social equality could do for him politically. That was just for openers. The Soviet Union’s superiority in missile strength that he alleged during the campaign put the U.S. nuclear capa-bility at a decided disadvantage was utterly false. There was a gap. But the Soviets trailed badly.... A director of the Marine Band once confided that when he asked Mrs. Kennedy before a White House social event what music the president liked, she replied that the band probably should play “Hail to the Chief... over and over again.” JFK’s relationship with Martin Luther King was strained at best, and the president’s penchant for sexual episodes led to one of the more disgraceful acts of his admin-istration. His affair with Judith Campbell, a mafia party girl who carried messages between the Chicago mobster Sam Giancana and the president, was discovered by the FBI. J. Edgar Hoover brought it to the attention of Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who immediately realized the political consequences if discovered. A decade later when it was disclosed by me and a Scripps Howard colleague, I appeared on “Good Morning America” in New York with JFK’s former White House chief of staff Kenney O’Donnell in a one-on-one debate. Asked by the moderator and host, David Hartmann, about the import of this I explained that the implied threat of its disclosure by Hoover forced Robert Kennedy to agree to the electronic surveillance of King. O’Donnell did not disagree but understandably tried to skirt the issue. How history regards our presidents is mostly transitory. It depends to a great degree on the times and who is doing the writing. That is particularly true when deal-ing with a chief executive who has been suddenly and terribly taken from us while in office. The years have considerably tarnished the image. It is all right to remember and grieve again but that should be tempered with an understanding of clay feet and reality. Dealing with our moods D o you ever get up on the wrong side of the bed? Or sometimes wonder why you’re in a happy mood, and sometimes a “funky” mood? Sometimes it’s a total mystery just why we find ourselves in a “mood.” Sometimes we can blame it on conditions, like being tired, frustrated, lonely, or when we’re shown special appre-ciation. Sometimes it’s anybody’s guess! Life is complicated. Moods can really have multiple causes. They may be caused by circumstances we find ourselves in, and the way we interpret the situa-tion. An example? An authority figure is scolding or shaming us for something we did. Are they right? We may feel ashamed, guilty, or sad. Do we think they’re wrong? We are likely to feel frustrated, angry, or defensive. What else causes our moods? It can be our physical condition of health or illness, fatigued or ener-gized. Or it could be our social environment: Do we see ourselves involved and popular, or alone and getting no appreciation? Other moods are brought on by our own biology. Our brains have a built-in biological “clock,” the super-chiasmatic nucleus, in the hypothal-amus. It’s responsible for supplying our bodies with melatonin, nature’s own sleep medication, not only for our daily sleep and wake cycle, but for the changing seasons of the year! We all, men and women alike, have monthly biological cycles that affect our moods. Also, each one of us has a pineal gland, which controls other glands, which release hormones as part of our autonomic nervous system. That’s the system responsible for exciting and alerting us to danger, and then calming us down when the danger is no longer a threat. What does all this mean to you? It may help a little just to know that our moods are complex, and have multiple causes. You may be able to recognize their influence when you acknowledge that you’re feel-ing sleepy, edgy, anxious, excited, happy, or depressed. Some of the causes are in our power to control, others we really can’t do much about. If you can identify reasons for your mood, then you are in a better position to know what you can “fix” and what you can’t. What you can do? As best you can, try to identify what’s causing your “mood.” If it’s something you can do something about, you may want to respond to the situation causing the mood. For example, if you’re feeling bored, you might think of things you can do to get busy or involved, find some-thing to do that you’re interested in, get involved in a social activity, depending on what caused the bore-dom. If it’s something you can’t do much about, like impatience from a slow recovery from an illness, you may need to find ways to just relax and accept your situation. It’s like the serenity prayer says: “Give me the strength to change what I can change, the patience to accept what I can’t change, and the wisdom to know the difference.” (I think I paraphrased it.) Sometimes when we’re feeling down or depressed, it may be OK to just “wallow in it” until it passes. Just go with the flow, and know it will pass. “Storms always pass, and the sun comes shining through.” Afghanistan’s president, Hamid Karzai, has frequently treated the United States with contempt, and his abuse is likely to continue given the Obama’s administra-tion latest concession. Only after the administration agreed for President Barack Obama to acknowledge past “mistakes” by U.S. military forces, and to promise such mistakes would not be repeated, did the Afghan president agree to a security agreement that will cover American troops after 2014, when combat opera-tions are scheduled to end. The sticking point in negotiations had been America’s request that troops be permitted to enter Afghan homes and mosques for security purposes. Afghan’s concern over such raids, not all of which have proved justified, is somewhat understandable. But the raids are essential to rooting out the very terrorists who threaten Karzai’s rule. Yet he continued to reject the agreement, even after Gen. Joseph Dunford, the commander of America’s forces in Afghanistan, modified its phras-ing so that American troops would be allowed to enter homes only “on extraordinary occasions.” The New York Times reported Tuesday that Karzai finally relented and will permit the raids under such circumstances, but with the expectation that the president will apologize for mistakes by U.S. armed forces. Instead of expressing contrition, Obama should express his outrage at the ingrate. Of course, U.S. troops have made mistakes during combat operations in Afghanistan. That is the way of war, particularly when fighting terrorists who hide among civilians. The U.S. commanders have made clear their regret when blunders have occurred. The president might remind Karzai that our nation freed Afghanistan from a Taliban dictatorship and continues to provide security for Karzai and his notoriously corrupt government. Yet he continues to poke our nation in the eye at every opportunity. According to The New York Times, during a phone call between Secretary of State John Kerry and Karzai on Monday, Kerry proposed that he “write a letter acknowledging Afghan suffering from past mistakes of American troops, and promising that such mistakes would not be repeated.” Karzai reportedly said he would accept that if the letter was signed by Obama, and Kerry agreed. The proposed deal will be presented to as many as 3,000 Afghan tribal leaders Thursday. If the deal is rejected, the United States may do just as it did in Iraq and leave Afghanistan to main-tain its own security. We’ve all seen what has transpired in Iraq since the Americans left. The United States is trying to spare Afghanistan that kind of bloodshed. But it’s time to let Karzai know it has had enough of his self-important posturing.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, November 22 & 23, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V Eternally separatedT he Thessalonians were physically suffering because they were trying to serve God. In an effort to comfort them, Paul tells them that God will punish those who are persecut-ing them. Paul goes on to say that those who “do not know God and those who do not obey the gos-pel of our Lord Jesus” (2 Thessalonians 1:8) will be punished by being eter-nally separated from the Lord (v. 9). As we meditate on this statement of the apostle Paul, we find some things hard to accept. There are some consequences which we may not have thought about when we are dis-obeying “the gospel of our Lord Jesus.” For those who do not know God there will be some reali-ties that they will have to face which may never have been considered. This “penalty” is “eternal destruction.” Eternal is a very long time. In fact, it is so long that we cannot even think about how long it will be. This is a concept that is very hard to under-stand. It is very hard for us to think about “time never coming to an end.” It is so foreign to our thinking and culture. One thing we need to think about is that “eternal destruction” will last as long as “eternal comfort.” The “away from the presence of God” part of this penalty is an experi-ence which no one has ever experienced before in their existence. We have always been in the presence of the Lord. Even when we were “not knowing” Him and not obeying the “gospel of our Lord Jesus” we were still in His presence. He was still watching our every action. He was there to receive us if we made the decision to begin to learn about Him and to “obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.” When one begins serving their “penalty” all of this will change. A second thing the one who is serving the “penalty” will no longer experience is “the glory of [God’s] power.” They will no longer see the mighty things which God will and can do. They will be com-pletely removed from all of those things. Paul wants these brethren to think about what is going to happen to their persecutors. He wants the Christians to know that God will “repay with afflic-tion” these people who are making life difficult for the Thessalonians. God will deal out “retribution” upon these people. However, Paul does not want these Christians, those who were persecut-ing these Christians, nor us to think about God punishing these people. It will be a reality, but the emphasis is upon what they will be missing. Paul is trying to motivate these Christians, while at the same time giving a warn-ing to the disobedient, to know and obey God because of what they will receive. They will continue to be in the presence of God. They will continue to see God’s power. Paul gives another reason for being obedient to God, namely, they will see Jesus when He comes back. It is very interesting that Paul does not say that these people will go to hell. Paul speaks of what these people will miss because they will not go to heaven. In the writings of Paul he is constantly speaking of what we must do to go to heaven. He is telling people that if they continue to live in their sinful behavior they will not go to heaven. Paul is constantly emphasizing going to heaven. He does not want anyone to be eternally separated from God. BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeakcarlton_mc@msn.com Q Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City area. All Scriptural quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, Holman Bible Publishers, unless otherwise stated. Neglecting your salvationPART ONE: “Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him.” — Hebrews 2:1-3T he theme of the book of Hebrews is the “Priesthood of Christ.” It was written sometime just before the Temple was destroyed in AD 70. A key to understanding the book is found in chapter 5:12 “For though by this time you ought to be teach-ers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.” They had pro-gressed in their Christian walk but now they were going backwards. Many today have slipped back-ward. There is no such thing as standing still in your Christian life. One either moves forward or backward. According to chapter 2:3, the people had began to neglect their salvation so the author of the book is sending a solemn warn-ing to fix it. As we move through the book, the author gave the Hebrews some things to do to fix their neglect. He uses the words “let us” at least thirteen times; and if we do what they ask us to do then we can put our neglect back on track. Hebrews chapter three is a recap of the nation of Israel wandering in the wilderness. It tells us why so many died before reach-ing the Promised Land. First Corinthians 10:6 and 11 teaches us that all the things that happened to Israel was done for our example. The Church needs to understand this. If you want to know how God deals with sin, look at Israel. The first “let us” we find is in Hebrews 4:1. It says, “Let us fear.” We need to be concerned that our daily walk will not cause us to come up short of what God wants for us. Everyday we must walk by faith. The next “let us” is found in chapter 4:11, “Let us labor” or be diligent to enter into His rest. We must labor to do God’s work on earth. Salvation is free, but to have victory in this life we must work for it. The next “let us” is in verse 14. “Let us hold fast our confession.” We must know what we believe about God and His word and stand firm on it. Too many today don’t really know what they believe about God and His word. Sure, they realize that for salvation they had to trust in the work of Calvary. Beyond that they just don’t know what they believe for sure. Paul wrote in 2nd Timothy 2:15, “To study or be dili-gent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly divid-ing the word of truth.” It takes study to know God’s word. Next, Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” We must come boldly to His throne with our prayers. Most Christians do not pray enough. Jesus’ death gave us the privilege to come straight to Him without a middle man. Let us not neglect our great salvation.

LAKE CITY REPORTER RELIGION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22 & 23, 2013 7A7AReligion Defining ‘thankfulness’ in our busy livesH appy Thanksgiving! I hope this Thursday your table is surrounded by people you love and piled high with wonderful dish-es that you enjoy. But most of all, I hope that you take the time to be thankful. In Webster’s dictionary, the word “thankful” is defined as “conscious of benefit received” and “expressive of thanks.” Those two definitions taken literally could be the ingredients for our most blessed Thanksgiving Day ever. “Being conscious of benefits received” too often gets left out of our busy lives. Daily we rush here and there, doing this and that, and while we are quick to complain when things don’t go our way, rarely do we stop and real-ize the benefit of so much that is going right. This even penetrates our closest relationships: how often we take the love and concern of oth-ers for granted, but how quick we are to point out their faults. As I think about this phenomenon, it occurs to me that our busy lifestyles might just be the catalyst for so much of our ungratefulness. In Psalm 46:10, the Bible instructs us to “Be still and know that I am God.” Too often watching televi-sion seems to be the only activity we can get still for, instead of intentionally stopping to recognize the benefits we have received. The second part of the definition is to be “expressive of thanks.” That means when you are thankful, don’t keep it to yourself. In 1863, in spite of the Civil War rag-ing in America, President Abraham Lincoln became conscious of the benefits afforded our country even during this dark time and invited the American people to join him in an expression of thanks. The following is an excerpt of his proclamation: “The year that is drawing towards its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to for-eign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict…No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mor-tal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while deal-ing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourn-ing in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens…” A powerful message and solemn reminder, our country, as well as our personal lives, has contin-ued to suffer its share of struggles, but we have also been greatly blessed. How should we express our grat-itude? As you sit around the table on Thanksgiving Day, why not share what God has done for you this year? In the process, be sure to share with those present why you are thank-ful for them. I warn you this type of behavior could possibly be contagious. In Psalm 96, the psalmist sings out his praises to God, over-whelmed by all that God has done. Verse seven says to “Ascribe (meaning to give credit) to the Lord “O families of nations…” The best testimonies come out of hearts full of appre-ciation for what God has done, and we all could use a healthy dose, because our hearts matter. Angie Editor’s Note: We will continue with Angie’s series on Ruth next week after Thanksgiving. HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.net Q Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences, and offers bibli cal counseling to individuals, couples and families. MAKING ME HISW hen Wiwik and I were married in 2004 we were faced with many difficul-ties. One was our little house. Some called this type of home a ‘match-box,’ but we didn’t care… it was our home. However, since I had been divorced… it just didn’t feel like it was our home Thus the renovations and changes started. New paint, new molding, walls came down, two rooms became one, one became something else, a bathroom became a closet (mine), a new closet was built (hers), old carpet came up and new title went down, more paint, a win-dow came out and French doors went in and a back porch, and an addition with yet another porch… That’s just on the inside. So, what’s the point? We read in the scriptures that Jesus came to give his life as a “ransom” for sinners (Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45; I Timothy 2:6; Hebrews 9:15). To “ransom” means to pay the price demanded to set someone free. Jesus did this with his life for us “while we were still sin-ners” (Romans 5:8) and when we were spiritually “dead” (Ephesians 2:1-4). We belonged to Satan before Christ came into our lives. I repented of my sins and was immersed into Christ (Acts 2:38-39), I was born again (John 3:1-10) when I was 10 years old. Then and now I was and am His. Jesus moved in, immersed in water and Spirit (John 3:3-5), forgiv-en, justified (I Corinthians 6:9-11) and no longer under condemnation (Romans 8)… I became a temple for His Spirit (I Corinthians 6:19), but I needed renovation so badly. You see, Jesus came to do all this for everyone, but after He saves an individual, He continues to work to make us, reno-vate and change us into His dwelling place, His home and His temple. We just need to ‘yield’ and let Him work. A lot of stuff has to go when Jesus comes into a person’s life. Understand, only Jesus and His Spirit can truly change a person on the inside. I had and have a long way to go. So many changes are con-tinually being made. Is the renovation process over? No way! There is still much work to be done in my life by His Spirit. What shall we say to this? “Bring it on Lord, whatever it takes… I want to be like You!” There is nothing in the old life of serving Satan that is worth keeping. There is everything to gain in serving Chris. The apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:7-10a, “But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I con-sider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righ-teousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ.” Jack Exum Jr. jackexumjr@yahoo.com Q Jack Exum Jr. is a freelance writer who lives in Lake City.

Dealing with ‘outsiders’ — 5-part seriesBy David MatthisAP Religion WriterDon’t be caught off guard when unbelievers suppress the truth of God and mock the faith we have. Don’t be bewildered when the world acts worldly. There is a place for a holy disregard for what unbelievers think. But it is small. Also, don’t forget “all of us also lived among them at one time” (Ephesians 2:3). It is far too easy to slouch into an unholy, careless lack of concern about what outsiders think, when the Scriptures say more than simply turn a deaf ear to every word from the outside.Associate with OutsidersPaul says in 1 Corinthians 5:9 that his previous instruc-tions “not to associate with sexually immoral people” didn’t mean the immoral of the world, but the church. Christians must discern from among our own when someone’s pattern of life has become a blatant lie about our Lord. “Purge the evil person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:12–13) We must judge from those inside our church, not outside. It is for the good of everyone. But as the apostle lays on us that burden, he lifts another. “God judges those outside.” God’s promised judgment of the unbeliev-ing frees us from feeling the need to be the instru-ment of their condemna-tion. Rather, we happily associate with outsiders and seek to be means of their redemption. Court upholds Bible firingAssociated PressCOLUMBUS — Ohio’s highest court says a school district was legally justified in firing science teacher John Freshwater who refused orders to remove from his classroom reli-gious books and a poster of a president praying.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFort White High’s girls soccer team lost a district match to P.K. Yonge School at home on Thursday. The Blue Wave won 5-0, with four goals coming in the first half. The Lady Indians tightened their defense after intermission, but Ducharme Lee added her fourth goal of the game on a long drive. Taylor Gebhardt also scored for the Blue Wave. Fort White tied Bradford High on Tuesday. Fort White (1-9-1, 1-7-1) plays at Santa Fe High at 1 p.m. Saturday. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAt the time of the year when the weather is sup-posed to cool down, Columbia High head coach Brian Allen hopes the Tigers’ play stays hot. Columbia plays host to Bartram Trail High in the Class 6A Region 1 semifinal game at 7:30 p.m. today. Columbia is coming off a 42-24 win against St. Augustine High in the first round of the playoffs, while the Bears are coming off a 50-30 win against Ed White High. Despite giving up 24 points last week to the Yellow Jackets, Allen feels like the Tigers’ defense was playing well. “To be honest, they didn’t play bad in the first half,” Allen said. “You look at the outcome and one score is a punt that doesn’t get punted. You look at the 17 they had and they got 10 points off turnovers. They stop us on the plus side and we hold them to a field goal. The defense didn’t play bad, and St. Augustine didn’t really go out and earn points. That’s a win when you have a team on the plus side of the field and they don’t get in for a score. I thought they played well in the first half as well, but coming out in the second half and finish-ing was big.” Allen said that the Bears will throw a familiar look at the Tigers with their defen-sive alignments. “Defensively, they’re three down lineman, similar to us,” Allen said. “We’ll see some of that defensively. They’re small-er up front. I’m anticipating us being able to get move-ment and running the ball well. We should be able to expose some stuff in the coverages.” While the Bears are a spread team, they do things a little differently than most spread teams by trying to pound the ball. “They try to spread you out and establish the run,” Allen said. “They’ll give you some option stuff, which isn’t what you’re used to seeing. They’ll throw it as well. It’ll be a good oppor-tunity for us to see some-thing that we’re not familiar with at this point in the season.” The winner of Columbia and Bartram Trail will take on the winner of Choctawhatchee High and Navarre High next Friday. Should Columbia and Choctaw both win, Columbia would host the next round. The Tigers would travel to Navarre for a second-straight season in the third round if both CHS and Navarre win.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22 & 23, 2013 3B3BNASCAR Austin Dillon and his No. 3 Chevrolet struggled to a 12th-place nish in the season nale for the Nationwide Series, but it was enough to give him the driver’s champion-ship by three points over Sam Hornish Jr., who nished eighth. It was Dillon’s second NASCAR title, the rst coming in the Camp-ing World Truck Series in 2011. Brad Keselowski won the Ford 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and his car owner Roger Penske and his No. 22 Ford team took the owner’s title by one point over the No. 54 Toyota team owned by J.D. Gibbs. The nish of the race and the outcome of the championship were clouded in contro-versy when a 12-lap caution period near the end of the race prevented Hornish, who had outrun Dillon for much of the race, from be-ing able to close the points gap on Dillon. Robin Pemberton, NASCAR’s vice president of competition, met with the media to explain why NASCAR didn’t display the red ag and stop the race while the track was cleaned. “It really looked like it was going to be a typical cleanup, a typical wreck,” he said. “You can use your hindsight every chance that you want to, but in this particular time, we did the best we could to do and it was more important to get the track ready.” Pemberton also said there was no pressure from ESPN, which was broadcasting the race, to end it as soon as possible so that it wouldn’t interfere with the broadcast of the Alabama-Mississippi State football game. “There was nothing like that,” he said.Dillon, who plans to move on to the Sprint Cup Series next season, said it wouldn’t have mattered if the race had been stopped. “God is great,” he said. “It would have worked out great either way.” Hornish was obviously disappointed at the turn of events. “What can I say?” he said. “Any other time there probably would have been a caution. It’s just one of those things that wasn’t meant to be.” Dillon, who drives for his grandfather Richard Childress, said he’s looking forward to the next step of his career. “That [Sprint Cup] level is a little bit bigger of a jump for sure,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the challenge. I think denitely Rookie of the Year is denitely what we want to get next year. That’s our main focus, and to gain as much experience as I can.” Keselowski, who went from 10th place to rst in the nal laps at Homestead, secured Ford the manufacturer’s title for the series and gave the carmaker 15 Nationwide wins for the year. Keselowski, the defending Cup champion, also played a key role in Penske winning the owner’s title. While he drove the team’s No. 48 Ford at Homestead, he had seven wins in Penske’s No. 22 throughout the season. His Cup teammate Joey Logano had three, A.J. Allmendinger had two and Ryan Blaney one in the No. 22. Trevor Bayne and Hornish also had a win apiece this season for Ford. Kyle Larson, who nished second at Homestead to give him four runner-up nishes for the season, was named the circuit’s Rookie of the Year. The Asian-American youngster is the rst Drive for Diversity participant to take that honor. “A lot of the veterans in the past and in the current Cup Series have won the Rookie of the Year,” said Larson, who will race in Cup next year for Chip Ganassi’s Chevrolet team. “To add my name to that list hopefully means I’m doing something good.” Matt Crafton caps stellar 2013 season with Truck Series championshipMatt Crafton has been one of the most consistent drivers in the Camping World Truck Series with 316 consecutive starts. But his most recent start, on Friday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, produced the big-gest moment of his career. Just by starting the season-ending Ford 200 he clinched the driver’s title for the first time in his career. It also was the first time his team, owned by Duke and Rhonda Thorson, had been part of a championship, but a crash on the first of three green-white-checkered runs to the finish cost the Thorsons an owner’s title. Kyle Busch wound up winning the race and tying the Thorsons atop the owner’s standings, so the title went to Busch because he had more race wins this season. Still, it was a major milestone for Crafton and the Thorsons. “It’s an honor to be able to do it for Duke and Rhonda Thorson that have been doing this for 18 years, and to give them the first champion-ship and me driving for them for 13 years,” said Crafton, who also had high praise for the crew of his No. 88 Toyota. “These guys are the ones that work so hard,” he said. “I’m just the one that gets to celebrate and look like the hero because I got to drive a great truck all year.” Crafton had an amazingly consistent year. He won at Kansas Speedway and had 19 top-10 finishes in 22 starts. He also had an 11th-place run, at Las Vegas. His Homestead finish was his worst of the season, but he still finished on the lead lap despite his late-race crash, which meant that he completed all 3,391 laps this sea-son. “It’s been an awesome year,” Crafton said. “It’s been the greatest year of my life so far. To have a baby and win a NASCAR championship, nobody can ever take that away from me.” Busch’s owner’s championship came on the strength of six wins for the No. 51 Toyota team, five by Busch and one by rookie Eric Jones. Others driv-ing that truck this season included Scott Bloomquist, Chad Hackenbracht and Denny Hamlin. Ryan Blaney, who finished second at Homestead, won the circuit’s Rookie of the Year honors.Even before he secured his sixth Sprint Cup championship with a ninth-place nish in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Jimmie Johnson was considered one of the greatest NASCAR drivers ever. The questions for many now become how long he and Chad Knaus, his crew chief since the start of his Cup career, can keep on domi-nating the series and where they will end up on the all-time winners lists in NASCAR. Denny Hamlin, who won the season nale to extend his own record to eight consecutive seasons with at least one win, is among those who have challenged Johnson for a title but come up short. In 2010, Hamlin led the series in victories with eight and took a 15-point lead over Johnson in the season nale only to lose the championship to him. Hamlin said Sunday that Johnson’s team stands apart from the rest because it usually doesn’t make errors when the pressure is on. “They just don’t make any mistakes,” he said. “They don’t have 20th or worse n-ishes that it seems like every one team has throughout the Chase, whether it be a superspeedway or whatever. You have to beat him on performance. To do that, that’s really hard.” He said that Johnson, who has 66 career Cup wins, is the best NASCAR driver of all time. “Unfortunately, we’re racing during the Jimmie Johnson era,” Hamlin said. “We’re just unlucky in that sense. I think being out there and racing with him, I can say that I think he’s the best that there ever was. He’s racing against competition that is tougher than this sport’s ever seen.” Hamlin’s teammate Matt Kenseth, who nished second to Hamlin at Homestead and second to Johnson in the championship standings, agreed that Johnson’s success is unparalleled. “Jimmie and that team are obviously unbelievable,” Kenseth said. “Never seen anything like this in the sport and probably will never see anything like it again. It’s amazing with as tight as the rules are, multi-car teams, information sharing, and all that stuff. It’s amazing they can gure out how to do that year after year.” Johnson’s championship puts him within one of the sport’s all-time record of seven, which is shared by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt. Petty said that making comparisons between his and Earnhardt’s and Johnson’s records is meaningless because they were set in different eras, under different circum-stances. “Earnhardt did his thing in his time against his competition,” Petty said. “I did mine against my competition and [Johnson’s] doing his thing against his competition. “We didn’t compete with each other. In other words, he wasn’t there to race against Richard Petty or Earnhardt, and we didn’t have to race against Jimmie Johnson, either. You can’t compare. It’s not apples and apples. It’s apples and oranges.” Petty did say that he and Johnson do share one major factor in that they both have done the bulk of their winning with the same crew chief — Johnson with Chad Knaus and Petty with his cousin Dale Inman. “It’s everything,” Petty said of the chemistry between driver and crew chief. “It’s just like me and Dale Inman. It was like a one-oper-ation show with two people, so you’ve got to have that. It doesn’t make any difference if it’s football or baseball or whatever.” Petty also said that Johnson and Knaus likely would keep on winning for some time to come. “He’s liable to go to eight to 10 [championships],” he said. In his champion’s interview, Johnson seemed comfortable with his greatness, as described by those around him. “I’m humbled by the nice things that have been said by competitors and owners, my peers in this industry,” he said. “I think their opinion is very important. I don’t think my opinion matters. It’s not for the athlete, the driver. It’s bestowed upon you, it’s passed down from others.” Jimmie Johnson ends 2013 Chase with sixth Sprint Cu p title Jimmie Johnson, right, hoists the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Trophy as crew chief Chad Knaus, left, looks on.Brian Lawdermilk for Chevrolet Jimmie Johnson takes a victory lap in his No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet after capturing his sixth Sprint Cup Series championship Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Brian Lawdermilk for Chevrolet Getty Images for NASCARFinal points standings and race results following the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway:1. JIMMIE JOHNSON(finished ninth) 2,419; champion He did what he needed to do — and a little more — to secure his sixth Sprint Cup championship. His run was not without a few anxious moments, including one during a restart at Lap 194 when he and Matt Kenseth collided, causing only minor damage to their cars.2. MATT KENSETH(finished second) 2,400 points; behind -19 He led the most laps (144) and gave his No. 20 Toyota a spirited run, but he was unable to over-come the points deficit created by his poor finish at Phoenix the week before. Still, he was smiling afterward. “Obviously it’s been a great year, best year I’ve ever had.”3. KEVIN HARVICK(finished 10th) 2,385 points; behind -34 In his final ride at Richard Childress Racing, he was one of three drivers still mathematically eligible for the championship, but he never really got his No. 29 Chevrolet up to a winning speed. “Obviously it’s not what we wanted, but came back and were way better at the end than what we were in the beginning.”4. KYLE BUSCH (finished seventh) 2,364 points; behind -55 Although he never got his car driving to his liking, he was good enough to secure his best-ever points finish. “We were able to dig hard there on the last run of the race and pick up enough spots to hold onto fourth in the standings, which is a big deal.” 5. DALE EARNHARDT JR.(finished third) 2,363 points; behind -56 For much of the race it looked as if he’d be able t o get his first win of the season, but he still ended the season stronger than he has in years. “This has been one of the best years I’ve had, certainly the best year I’ve had working with Hendrick [Motorsports].”6. JEFF GORDON(finished 11th) 2,337 points; behind -82 The defending winner of the Ford EcoBoost 400 appeared to have the speed to score a top-five fin-ish until the latter stages of the race. “We made a n adjustment that I asked for there at the end, and i t just went the wrong way.”7. CLINT BOWYER(finished fifth) 2,336 points; behind -83 A strong finish at Homestead propelled him to his second top-five finish in the Chase and his 10th of the season. Overall, he finished the year with 19 top-10 finishes, including six in the 10-race Chase .8. JOEY LOGANO(finished eighth) 2,323 points; behind -96 He fought a loose handling condition but still salvaged a top-10 finish to end his first season at Penske Racing with another positive result. “I had a lot of fun this year, and this was my best season personally. I’d still call it a good season, not a great season.”9. GREG BIFFLE(finished 24th) 2,321 points; behind -98 After finishing third at New Hampshire in the second race of the Chase and moving from 10th to fifth in the standings, he was never a factor in th e championship and ended the season with his worst finish of the Chase.10. KURT BUSCH(finished 21st) 2,309 points; behind -110 Making his final start in the No. 78 Chevrolet before moving to Stewart-Haas Racing for 2014, he started on the outside pole but faded as the race went on. “I am disappointed right now, but tomorrow I am going to look back at this sea-son and be very proud of what we were able to accomplish.”11. RYAN NEWMAN(finished 17th) 2,286 points; behind -133 His final ride in the No. 39 Chevrolet at Stewart-Haas Racing before moving to Richard Childress Racing didn’t produce the result he wanted, but he was pleased with the season. “We won the Brickyard 400, we made the Chase, I think we had top-10 finishes in half the races. We certainly can’t hang our heads about that. But as racers, you always want more.”12. KASEY KAHNE(finished 13th) 2,283 points; behind -136 He won twice in the regular season, but struggled points-wise. He ended the year with 10 finishes outside the top 25, three of which were in the Chase. That offset the gains that came from 11 top-five finishes for the season, three of which were in the Chase.13. CARL EDWARDS(finished 12th) 2,282 points; behind -137 He ended the 26-race regular season as the points leader but wound up at the bottom of the Chase standings after the final 10 races. And Homestead, historically one of his better tracks, confounded him. “This track is usually our bread and butter ... so it’s tough.”Johnson runs away from Chase field for sixth Sprint Cup Series championship Austin Dillon holds on to capture his rst Nationwide Series titleAustin Dillon raises the NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship Trophy Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway after clinching his second career NASCAR series title.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22-23, 2013 DEAR ABBY: My 23year-old daughter is out of control and has been since she was 16. She has a 2-year-old daugh-ter, but she lives her life on the edge. She spends her days on the Internet meeting strange men and going out with them in private places. On the weekends, she drops her daughter here and takes off. She has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and prostitution, but swears she only drinks alcohol now. I get so worried and upset I find myself yelling at her and trying to prevent her from leaving with these strange men. She thinks I’m trying to control her life when I’m actually trying to save her. What should I do? I’m getting too old to be stressing out about what she’s doing and who she’s with. — STRESSED-OUT IN CALIFORNIA DEAR STRESSEDOUT: You can’t “save” your daughter. Until she realizes she needs help, and is willing to accept it and change her life, she is unreachable. You can, however, talk to an attorney about gaining legal custody of your grandchild. Terrible things can happen to women who do what your daughter is doing. That little girl needs safety, consis-tency and stability, and it appears you are the only relative she has who is capable of giving it to her. Please don’t wait.Looking for familiar obituary is odd DEAR ABBY: I read the obituaries in our local newspaper every day to see if someone I know has died. But when I don’t see any familiar name, I feel let down and disappointed. Is that weird? — STILL ALIVE IN SAN DIEGO DEAR STILL ALIVE: People read the obitu-ary section for various reasons, including the fact that some of the deceased have lived very interesting lives. Some do it hoping they won’t find their own name listed. If they see the name of an acquaintance, they may feel sadness at the loss or sympathy for the family, knowing each death leaves a hole in someone’s heart. But to feel “let down” seems to me like a lack of empa-thy, and in my opinion, it IS weird.Associate wants calm shoppers DEAR ABBY: PLEASE remind your readers that it is the job of retail workers to help customers. We are not “liars” or “stupid” because our store hap-pens to be out of a toy that an angry parent “must” have this holiday season. It is amazing how this year’s hot toy item can turn parents into monsters. I had one parent ask me after finding out that we were out of stock on a certain toy, “What am I supposed to do now?” I suggested looking online, but what I really wanted to say was, “Take your kids to help out at a homeless shelter so they can count their blessings!” — SANTA’S HELPER IN IOWA CITY DEAR SANTA’S HELPER: I’ll remind them, but the parents you describe are under pressure because they don’t want to disappoint their kids. To the pan-icked parent who asks, “What am I supposed to do now?” you could respond by saying, “Now you go to Plan B.” Then suggest some other toy the child would like – even though it’s not his or her No. 1 choice. While I think the com-ment you would like to make (but keep sup-pressing) is an excellent suggestion, it would not be an appropriate one to make in a situation like this.Teen knows cutting won’t helpDEAR ABBY: I am a 15-year-old girl. Recently I made a new friend, “Mandy,” and confided to her about my dark past of depression. When I explained how I used to cut myself, she burst into tears and told me she had cut herself the day before. I didn’t expect that response. I know from experience that what Mandy is doing is not a good way to handle things. What stopped me from cutting was getting a permanent scar from it. Although plenty of people told me that cutting was no way to deal with my pain, the only one I listened to in the end was myself. I really want Mandy to stop. I told her not to do it, but I’m afraid she will anyway. She’s an amazing person, and she doesn’t deserve the pain she is causing herself. How can I help her? — BEEN THERE IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR BEEN THERE: Continue encouraging your friend to stop cutting, but if she’s not able to, she may need professional help to quit. It is nothing to be ashamed of. A counselor at school might be able to help if Mandy is willing to talk to one. But if she isn’t, then tell your mother about this so she can let Mandy’s mother know what’s going on. Cutting can be a sign of serious depression, and secrets of this kind are destruc-tive.Mom wants son to call her ‘mom’DEAR ABBY: My 12year-old son still calls me Mommy. My daughter, who is two years older, calls me Mom. I don’t want to hurt my son’s feelings, but I think at his age he should transi-tion to calling me Mom. What do you think? Should I just give it time, or is there an age limit for calling one’s mother Mommy? — JUST MOM IN FLORIDA DEAR JUST MOM: I think you should keep your mouth shut. There is nothing shameful or wrong about a son call-ing his mother Mommy if that is what he has done all his life. Frankly, it’s rather sweet, and it’s far more loving than some of the names peo-ple have written to me when referring to their mothers. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Take criticism gracefully. It may not be welcome, but it will probably help you figure out what you should do next. An emotional situ-ation regarding money can be worked out if you base your negotiations on equality and fairness. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Make preparations at home that will add to your comfort or make your premises ready for a festive event. Dealing with family dynamics will put you in a key position. Your concerns will be addressed and a solution provided. Love is high-lighted. ++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): The last-minute changes you make won’t please everyone, but they will make your life easier. False informa-tion that someone gives pertaining to your status will set you off, but letting anger get the better of you will only make mat-ters worse. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Add a touch of flash to whatever you do. Taking a step outside your comfort zone will prove to be exciting. You will attract attention that will help you make progress on whatever you want to pursue. Put romance first and it will improve your love life. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leap to safety if someone tries to manipu-late you using emotional blackmail. Take any opportunity to travel or socialize with people who can offer guidance. Do your best to expand your interests and financial pos-sibilities. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Listen and learn from the obser-vations you make. Preparation will be the precondition to capture whatever you pursue. A change in the way you do things will catch competi-tors off guard. Love is in your corner. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A problem you face must be handled with diplo-macy. Overreacting will create an unsavory situa-tion. Find out what’s at the root of the dilemma and make alterations to ease a stressful situation before it spins out of control. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Check out different philosophies or ways of living and you will find peace of mind. Come up with a plan that is con-ducive to forming better relationships and helping you excel at what you enjoy doing the most. Put love and romance first. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t divulge your feelings. What happens will be dependent on how oth-ers perceive you. It’s important to complete any alterations in the confines of your personal space. Finish what you start before you present what you’ve done. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Set your goals high and strive to reach them before you take a break. What you accomplish now will determine how much you will enjoy your time off. A partnership will bring greater opportunities to corner your audience. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Find out information firsthand. You’ll be misinformed if you trust what someone tells you. Your fortune depends on how you handle your workload, expenses and cash flow. A job change or promotion won’t live up to your expectations. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Take pride in what you do. People, places and pastimes will help you make a decision. Attend a reunion or con-tact old friends. An agree-ment or settlement can be resolved. Reliving memo-ries will give you a better idea of what you want to pursue next. +++++ Happy Birthday: You will be receptive to new ideas and plans. Learn all you can and incorpo-rate what you enjoy the most into your everyday routine. Finding pleasure in what you do and the people you associate with will make the difference between enjoying life and trying to get through each day. You have options and must choose what’s best for you. Your numbers are 1, 8, 16, 22, 35, 41, 44.

By JULIE DYKESSpecial to the ReporterVALDOSTA — The Georgia Christian School Lady Generals are proud to announce that senior Lindsey Levings has signed a letter of intent to play bas-ketball for the University of North Florida next year. Lindsey is the daughter of Gator and Emily Levings and has a brother, Staten. The University of North Florida Ospreys in Jacksonville are led by head coach Mary Tappmeyer. Having joined the Lady Generals her junior year as a starting center and forward, Levings quickly found a fan base at Georgia Christian that began with the coaches and spread easily outward. “Lindsey is a great athlete,” principal and head coach Burt Copeland said. “Her dedication to basket-ball is seen in her ability. She is such a versatile play-er and we were able to use that range to our advan-tage. She works hard to do the best she can to help her team do well. We are proud of her accomplishments.” Coach Sarah Hughes said, “I have only known Lindsey for a short time, but I can already see she is quite skilled as a post player. I look forward to watching her make that transition from high school to college basketball.” Lindsey has a strong chemistry with the Lady Generals, even though she has only been with them a short time. One key to understanding that chemis-try is how she describes the family environment of the team and the fans. She calls teammates her sisters, and says that stepping into Lacy H. Elrod Gym feels like coming home to her. When asked, she said that the love shown by the teachers and other students is what she likes best about GCS. By the end of her first year at Georgia Christian, Levings had already made quite a mark. She was voted Most Talented by her classmates and was named All Region and All State in basketball. When asked about her choice of the University of North Florida for basket-ball, Lindsay indicated she has always had a desire to play for Coach “Tapp.” She then relays a story about how she knew it was the right program for her. “My first unofficial visit to UNF really drew me closer to wanting to become an Osprey for many reasons,” Levings said. “The coach-ing staff is very profes-sional, they are great role models, they motivate each other and their players, and they always strive to win every time they step on the floor. The players are very respectful to each other as well as the coaches. They never give up even when it gets tough. That’s what’s great about the UNF Ospreys … the will to win, the will to have each others’ backs, and the will to push even when it gets hard.” 8B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22 & 23, 2013 8BSportsJump LC BRIEFS COURTESYJoining Lindsey Levings at her signing ceremony to the University of North Florida are (front row, from left) grand mother Emily Griffis, dad Gator Levings, Lindsey, mom Emily Levings a nd grandfather Johnny Griffis.
