Couple not shy
about feelings
BOMBAY, India -
Bollywood actor Shahid
Kapur says he feels

incomplete when Kareena
Kapoor isn't around - and
that the feeling is mutual.
Kapur, who is normally
guarded about his private life,
said his two-year relationship
with Kapoor keeps getting
stronger, the 24-year-old was
quoted as saying in Monday's
editions of The Times of
"She is my biggest ego
booster. Since the last two
years our bonding has grown
deeper," he said. "I am
incomplete without her in my
life, and vice versa."
Kapoor, 22, is one of
Bollywood's leading
actresses, starring in more

Penny Lancaster and Rod Stewart

than a dozen films in the past
five years. Kapur has
appeared in five movies since
his 2003 debut.
Indian newspapers and
television stations often carry
pictures of the smiling couple
at premieres and publicity
campaigns, but "we've
learned to fiercely guard and
carefully handle our
relationship from the world,"
Kapur said.
Although their 2004
thriller, "Fida (Smitten),"
bombed at the box office,
Kapur said they'll be working
together in three new movies.

Teen fatally shot
by 10-year-old boy
13-year-old boy died after he
was shot by a 10-year-old boy
while deer hunting in rural
Washington County.
Austin Richardson was
shot in the left shoulder with
a .22-caliber rifle by Dylan
Barfield on Sunday. The boys
were with a party of about
14 hunters from the Bay
County area who were
hunting in the Econfina
Creek Wildlife Management
Area, said Stan Kirkland,
spokesman for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
The commission is still
investigating the incident, bul
there do not appear to be any
hunting violations, Kirkland
Everyone who was
required to have a hunting
license had one, each hunter
was wearing state-mandated
orange, and no children were
left unattended, Kirkland
said. Under Florida law,
children under 16 don't have
to be licensed to hunt if they
are with an adult.
"With younger hunters,

close to them and know
where they are at all times.
That's as much as we can
ask," Kirkland said. "In an
ideal situation, one (boy)
shouldn't have been ahead of
the other."
A week ago, four men from
Jacksonville were quail
hunting in Calhoun County
when one of the hunters shot
two others. The injuries were
not life threatening.

Feaste will raise money for local VA


Lake City Community
College (LCCC) will present
its second annual Renaissance
Feaste and Christmas
Madrigal Dinner to raise funds
for Lake City Veterans Affairs
(VA) Medical Center Hospice.
"I think people will be
charmed with the whole
ambiance of the fact that it's
an old fashioned madrigal and
an old-fashioned dinner
served to them," said Sue
Hadley, an insurance agent
acting as master of cere-
monies for the event in her
role as The Lady.'
The First Presbyterian
Church, Lake City, will host
the event at 7 p.m. on Dec. 8-10
and the money raised will be
used to buy items for the VA
Hospice and help family
"On the first night, we're

just doing desserts and coffee.
There's a traditional hot was-
sail apple cider with cinnamon
and different spices," said
LCCC Choir Director Owen
Wingate. "Usually, it's proba-
bly spiked with alcohol. It's a
traditional hot punch that
would be served to Christmas
carolers. There are toasts that

are done by the singers to dif-
ferent people who are attend-
ing the feast. Then the second
and third evening, it's a full
four-course Renaissance feast.
"Each one of the courses
that are served. There's a
song that is sung as the food is
served. So it's very entertain-
ing, as well as a delicious'

meal. It's a musical feast that
would be served at the court
of Elizabeth I."
The hall of the church will
be decorated in the style of
Elizabeth I and the LCCC stu-
dent choir members will be
dressed in period costumes,
and sing and speak in English
But not all the pieces will be
from the 16th Century.
There will be Spanish,
French and contemporary
songs and after dinner a sing-
.along Christmas Carol,
Wingate said.
Wingate said there would
also be solos and several skits.
"We have a court jester who
is rather funny," Wingate said.
Seating is limited in the hall
because of the way tables are
arranged and the performers
will sing some songs on a
stage before walking through
the crowd for the remainder of
the performances.

Traffic fatalities rate

down during holiday


The number of traffic fatali-
ties across the state declined
during the Thanksgiving holi-
day period this year, but still
resulted in 37 deaths on Florida
Last year, there were 55 fatal-
ities during the Thanksgiving
holiday period, which includes
the time from the Wednesday
before Thanksgiving through
midnight Sunday.
Of the 37 traffic fatalities in
the state, 23 occurred at night.
Eight of the fatalities were
pedestrians struck by vehicles,
and 76 percent of those killed
in vehicles were not wearing
seat belts, according to Florida
Highway Patrol. reports
released Monday.
Two fatalities occurred in

Columbia County, both result-
ing from a single car wreck on
Thanksgiving Day. FHP investi-
gators said the wreck was
believed to have been influ-
enced by high speeds and alco-
"We had noticed a trend dur-
ing the Thanksgiving travel
period, especially on
Wednesday and Sunday," Lt.
Mike Burroughs, public infor-
mation officer for Troop B of
the Florida Highway Patrol
said. "In the past, these two
days have been heavily trav-
eled days, resulting in traffic
congestion and traffic tie-ups. It
seems as though the motoring
public heeded our warnings
this holiday season and dis-
persed their travel between
days other than Wednesday
and Sunday, resulting in less
traffic congestion.

evident for


The community came
through for the National
Guard. Citizens supported
the citizen soldiers,
remembering their needs
during this season of holiday giving.
The overwhelming support of
concerned community residents
showed in the stacks of boxes of
goodies organized at the National
Guard Armory in Lake City on Monday.
Boxes for soldiers were being packed
to be sent to Afghanistan later this week
to culminate the Treats for Troops
campaign. Local soldiers stationed with
the 153rd Engineering Company, based
in Lake City, will have their holiday
wishes answered as the packages of
treats and homestyle supplies will
arrive in time for Christmas.
Our soldiers are in the early days of a
brutal mountain winter in the high
desert of Afghanistan. These treats that
were so thoughtfully donated by
residents here will warm their spirits
upon arrival.
Our community once again showed
its loyalty for our troops serving
overseas and that gives us all pride. We
cannot forget the sacrifice these men
are making overseas. They are giving
up precious family time and time away
from the daily routines of their lives -
at work, at church and with other
activities in which they were involved.
It's good to hear the community
answered the call and didn't forget our
National Guard soldiers serving in a
hostile land. With this help, our
servicemen will experience a little
holiday cheer, a little joy from home.
May they all return safe very soon.

Pets are thankful too

I hope everyone had a
Thanksgiving; we did.
Traditionally my
brothers and sisters and
their families all converge at
Mama's home for a big feast.
Everyone brings food, and
there are usually 20 to 30 of us
that come together. This year
the crowd was a bit small with
only 21 of us. One sister
phoned the day before to tell
us tearfully that her 13-year-
,old cat, Flojo, was in the pet
hospital not doing well:
Although Flojo was due to be
released on Wednesday, Mary
didn't feel she could leave her
for a 300-mile trip. So neither
she nor her children made it
here for Thanksgiving.
We understood, of course;
all of my family are pet lovers.'
We all have dogs or cats or.
both. Some of them, like my
own Miss Kitty, and my sister
Sue's dog, Blondie, were
abandoned near our homes
andsubsequently adopted. My
brother Jim has taken a liking
to exotic birds in addition to
his cats, and now has a
roomful of them, each in its
own cage. Two rather
conversational cockatiels can
tell time, and one announces

Ray and his wife Melodye

nursery in Boynton Beach.

Carolyn Abell

Located on a busy highway,
they do a huge volume of both
.wholesale and retail business.
A few months ago, they
noticed a poor, scrawny,
obviously undernourished
black female cat had been
abandoned at the nursery. It
almost seemed a miracle that
she was alive, considering
their proximity to the
highway. A vet once told me
that a cat abandoned near a
major thoroughfare like that
has a life expectancy of about
15 minutes. After feeding the
poor creature, they noticed
that she seemed to have
lumps-in her abdominal area.
Thinking she might have
tumors or some other disease,
they took her to their
veterinarian, who, upon
examining the cat, informed
them that she was an
expectant mother. She was
about halfway through the
gestation period, and the
.lumps they could see and feel
through her pathetically
emaciated body were the
heads and bodies of kittens.
Taking her back to the
nursery, Ray and his family
began giving her nourishing
food and provided a place for
her to bed down and rest.
They named her "Poncha," a
Spanish name, which seemed
fitting, since most of their
employees are Spanish-

One morning about three
weeks later, they found that
Poncha had given birth right
There in the retail area of the
nursery. In a small, somewhat
secluded spot surrounded by
shrubs and a pallet of rocks,.
four of the tiniest kittens they
had ever seen had been born
and appeared to be healthy.
Two were black just like their
mother, while the other two
had some orange mixed in
with the black. Trying to
decide what to name the
kittens, they noticed one was
closer to a bougainvillea bush,
so he became "Bogey."
Another male seemed nearer
to the pallet of rocks, so they
called him "Rocky."
A female lay next to a
potted magnolia, so she was
christened "Maggie."
And the second female,
nestled next to a rosy crown
of thorns, acquired the name
As the kittens grew and
thrived, they became playful
and entertaining to customers.
In fact, several people wanted
to adopt one, but Ray and
Melodye couldn't bear to
break up the family.
As soon as the kittens were
weaned and old enough, they
took the little family of five
back to the vet for
vaccinations, and scheduled
them for spaying and
The kittens are a few
months old now, and provide
entertainment and pleasure
for everyone at the nursery.
They probably don't
understand the meaning of
Thanksgiving, but I'll bet they
have thankful little hearts for
a safe and loving home.

n a remarkable story
published on
Thanksgiving, The New
York Times revealed that
the Bush administration
"decided to charge (suspected
terrorist) Jose Padilla with
less serious crimes because it
was unwilling to allow
testimony from two senior
members of (al Qaida) who
had been subjected to harsh
Harsh questioning - as in
what most of us would
describe as torture, or at least
its close cousin.
One of the two al Qaida
honchos, Khalid Sheik
SMohammed, has in fact
become the poster boy for
"waterboarding," a technique
of submerging a prisoner's
face in water so he

experiences the sensation of
drowning. News reports have
said Mohammed, the alleged
architect of Sept. 11, was
subjected to this treatment
after his capture in early 2003.
Did the use of such rough
techniques on al Qaida
leaders save America from an
attempted terrorist attack by
Padilla, as some defenders of
the interrogation policies may
well contend? We may never
know, since the actual charges
against Padilla are unrelated
to the bombing plots
described by Justice
Department officials after his
arrest three years ago. As far
as we're concerned, however,
the use of torture doesn't
become acceptable just .
because someone may be able
to point to valuable

information obtained through
its use.
It goes without saying that
torture sometimes produces
useful revelations. The more
important question is whether
the dangers of embracing
physical coercion on prisoners
outweigh the likely benefits.
And we believe the answer to
that is yes, they do.
Among those dangers:
Torture makes prisoners talk,
but in the process produces
much unreliable, bogus
information, too; torture
dehumanizes both its victims
and those who inflict it, and
leads the latter down a slip-
pery slope of moral corrup-
tion; and finally, torture pro-
vides the enemy with fuel for
tormenting our prisoners.

humor is

fine tuned

actually, there's no news at all in
this item, but I thought you'd like
to know: A study at Stanford
University shows that women
have a more sophisticated sense
of humor than men:
My wife told me that on our second date.
But now it's been proven. Here's what
at Stanford .
gave 10 men
and 10 women
a set of 70 -

cartoons and
their brains as
evaluated the

Phil Hudgins

When the cartoons brought smiles or ,
laughs from the women, the monitors showed
a burst of brain activity in both the left
prefrontal cortex, which governs language
and complex-idea processing, and the nucleus
accumbens, called the reward center of the
Research director Allen Reiss said the
activity suggests that women thought more
about the cartoons before deciding if they
were funny. And they got more pleasure when
they actually got the joke.
Men, on the other hand, expected the
cartoons to be funny and gave.them less
thought. So their brains showed less activity
in both regions, meaning they really
experienced less pleasure.
They apparently laughed more but enjoyed
it less.
SThat, Reiss told The Associated Press, is , ..
why men laugh at flatulenrce jokes and
slapstick. They don't have to think about
anything; they just laugh.
But a joke or cartoon really needs to be
clever to make a woman laugh.
She must think about it.
Sometimes the mere mention of a word or
two makes men laugh. For example: Epsom
You male readers smiled, didn't you? You
women had to think about it, and you
probably didn't crack a grin.
"What's funny about Epsom salts?" you're
I don't know. None of us men knows. The
words are just funny.
But women are more sophisticated in other
ways, too.
Except for the stereotypical Southern
woman who ends up in front of the TV camera
explaining how the tornado just swooped
down, grabbed her aluminum chaise lounges
and festooned the big oak tree in the
neighbor's yard, women are more
sophisticated than men.
Have you ever heard a woman ask her
husband, "Honey, does this jacket match this
No, and you never will. With few
exceptions, men don't know which colors
match and which ones clash. I've worn shoes
of different colors to work.
Women instinctively know which fork to
use and when.
They know which side of the bread to
butter and on which one of those
little saucers the bread belongs.
Men just watch them and follow suit.
Women know when it's appropriate to laugh
at church.
Men laugh at the wrong time, like when a
friend two rows up spills communion wine on
his white shirt.
So why did Stanford waste all that money
trying to prove that women.have a more
sophisticated sense of humor?
To me, it was a waste of good brainpower,
and men don't have any to waste,

According to laboratory studies,
social interaction and stress can
affect how quickly skin heals from
injury. Experiments with laboratory
animals have shown that minor cuts
were slow to heal when the animals
were both socially isolated and
made anxious. After one day, and
lasting for a week, wounds were
larger in the stressed and socially
isolated group when compared with
less stressed and less socially
isolated animals. High levels of the
stress hormones cortisol and corti-
costerone seem to delay wound
healing. On the other hand, the
hormone oxytocin, which is released
during pleasurable social interac-
tion, appears to counter effect.
Clearly, social support is important
for individuals who suffer injuries or
undergo surgical procedures.
When you require treatment for a
skin condition, or are interested in
cosmetic procedures, the advice and
care from a dermatologist is indis-
pensable. For professional medical
and aesthetic care for your skin, call
& SKIN SURGERY. Our office is
conveniently located at 114 N.W.
76th Drive and we can be reached
by calling 352-332-4442. New
patients are welcome.
P.S. The findings on wound
healing mentioned above may also
indicate that scarring may be worse
in stressed individuals.

Saddam lectures

judge during trial

Associated Press

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A com-
bative Saddam Hussein
lashed out Monday at his
treatment by American "occu-
piers and invaders" and lec-
tured the chief judge about
leadership as his trial
resumed in a rambling and
unfocused session.
Two of the seven other
defendants also spoke out dur-
ing the 2/2-hour hearing, com-
plaining of their treatment in
detention or dissatisfaction
with their court-appointed
counsel. The, court's tolerance
of such comments drew sharp
complaints from Shiite politi-
cians who contend the tribu-
nal is trying too hard to
accommodate an ousted dicta-
tor who should have already
been convicted and executed.
'The chief judge should be
changed and replaced by
someone who is strict and
courageous," said Shiite legis-
lator Ali al-Adeeb, a senior
official in Prime Minister
Ibrahim al-Jaafari's party.
The tribunal adjourned
until next week to give the
defense time to replace
lawyers slain since the trial
opened Oct. 19. Monday was

gered confidently to his seat,
greeting.people along the way
with the traditional Arabic
greeting, "Peace be upon the
people of peace" as he cradled
a copy of the Quran.
He began with a verse from
the Muslim holy book that

CDC: Gonorrhea rates

are down; syphilis is up

Associated Press
ATLANTA - Gonorrhea
has fallen to the lowest level
on record in the United
States, while the rates of other
sexually transmitted diseases
- syphilis and chlamydia -
are on the rise, federal health
officials said Tuesday.
The seemingly paradoxical
findings can be explained by
the cyclical nature of syphilis
outbreaks and a rise in risky
sexual behavior among gay
men, researchers said.
The nation's gonorrhea
rate fell to 113.5 cases per
100,000 people last year, the
lowest level since the govern-
ment started tracking cases in
1941, according to the
,- t Centers forflDjsase) C2ntrol;
and r.eventio.. ,
At 'the sane time, health
official saw increases in
syphilis, which is far more
rare but has been increasing
since 2000. The rate of
reported early-stage syphilis
was 4.7 cases per 100,000in.
2004, up 81 percent since
The chlamydia rate rose to
319.6 cases per 100,000 in
2004, up about 6 percent from
the year before. But
researchers said it is not clear

whether the rise represents a
real increase in the
.prevalence of the disease, or
simply reflects better
awareness and detection.
All three diseases are
caused by sexually
'transmitted bacteria.
London researchers report-
ed earlier this year that
because of the life cycle of the
syphilis bacteria, infections
tend to peak at eight- to
11-year intervals. Sexual
behavior affects the overall
number of people infected,
but regular ups and downs
are intrinsic to the disease,
the researchers said.
Gonorrhea does not follow
the same pattern, they said,
and rates have been gradually
falling since the 1980s.
Dr. - Ronald Valde ald ri.ser
acting director of the CDC's'"
National Center for HIV, STD
and TB Prevention, said that,
may be part of the explanation
for the rebound in syphilis,
but a primary reason appears
to be an increase in risky
sexual behavior.
In 2004, about 64 percent of
reported early-stage syphilis
infections occurred among.
men who had sex with men,
up from 5 percent in 1999,
according to the CDC.

glitch, both families arrived at
the hospital at precisely the
same time.
"It's unusual to come to a
hospital and see each mem-
ber of a couple holding an
overnight bag," said Rosalind
Dorlen. "Here we are, four of
us, with four bags, walking
onto the same elevator at

6 a.m."
"Rosalind said, You must
be the other couple,' "
Packard recalled with a laugh.
"I said, 'I think we are.' "
Since the surgery, the
couples have become close
friends, going out to dinner
twice a month. They even
took a joint vacation to
Saratoga in August.
The two families, with
children and other relatives in

Got raw milk? Small shareholder

dairies run afoul of regulations

Associated Press
- Kelsey Kozak's kitchen is a
dairy wonderland. Fresh
cheese, yogurt and milk
abound, all compliments of
Iris, a gentle tan cow who
grazes the family's seven-acre
Although only 16, Kelsey
runs the tiny Fort Bantam
Creamery from her family's
home just west of Seattle,
offering culinary creations
from Iris' unpasteurized milk
- also known as raw milk;
"After you've been drinking
raw milk for a while, you can't
drink store-bought again,"
Kelsey said. "It has a lot more
flavor and is healthier."
But the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration
disagrees, saying raw milk
is dangerous and can
sometimes carry deadly
pathogens, such as
Campylobacter, Salmonella
and E. colil
Now, the state has taken
notice of raw microdairies,

Kelsey Kozak, 16, milks her cow 'Iris' Wednesday, Nov. 16, at her
family farm on Vashon Island, Wash., near Seattle.

saying they need to be
licensed with the state
Department of Agriculture.
The order has some operators
wondering whether the state
has a right to regulate what
many consider a private

The Kozaks say they don't
consider themselves in the
retail business. They sell
"shares" of Iris, their one
dairy cow, to raw milk afi-
cionados, and Kelsey handles

the care, feeding and milking.
Chuck Kozak, Kelsey's
father, said the family will stop
operating creamery if the
state sends a cease-and-desist
'That would be. unfortu-
nate," he said. "We know the
people now and they really
love the product and we love
sharing it. We definitely don't
do it for the money."
Interest in raw, unpasteur-
ized milk has been on the rise
nationwide, part of a growing
natural foods movement.
Proponents say pasteuriza-
tion's scalding heat destroys
the taste and nutrients.
Selling raw milk for human
consumption is legal in
28 states, according to the
Weston A. Price Foundation, a
raw milk advocacy group
based in Washington, D.C.
Five states allow raw milk for
animal consumption, a loop-
hole that raw milk fans
exploit. In some remaining
states, including Colorado,
Virginia and Wisconsin, raw
milk is available through
cow-share programs.

New CPR guidelines urge more chest compressions

Associated Press
DALLAS - Updating the
way everyday people do CPR,
new recommendations urge
many more chest compres-
sions for victims of cardiac
The revised guidelines
issued Monday by the
American Heart Association
on cardiopulmonary
resuscitation advise giving
30 chest compressions -
instead of 15 - for every two
Rescue breaths.
"Basically, the more times
someone pushes on the chest,
the better off the patient is,"
said Dr. Michael Sayre, an
Ohio State Universiht emer-

who helped develop the new

sions, blood flow stops," said

Cancer radiation can increase
women's risk for hip fractures

AP Medical Writer
CHICAGO - Radiation
treatment for pelvic-area can-
cer can increase women's
risks of breaking a hip later
on, a study found.
The higher risks were seen
in those with anal cancer, rec-
tal cancer or cervical cancer,
diseases that will be diag-
nosed in a total of nearly
30,000 U.S. women this year.
It is well known that radia-
tion treatment can damage
bone, but the fracture risks
have not been well-studied,
the researchers said. A bro-
ken hip can be devastating;
for many elderly people espe-
cially, it can lead to deadly
The study, published in
Wednesday's Journal of the
American: Medical
Association, involved 6,428
women who were 65 and
older when diagnosed with
pelvic cancer - women who
already run a higher risk of
broken bones because levels
of bone-protecting estrogen
plummet at menopause,
About half the women
received radiation for cancer.
Compared with the non-
radiation group, anal-cancer
radiation patients faced about
triple the risk of developing
pelvic fractures, mostly of the
hip; while cervical and rectal
cancer patients both faced
about a 70 percent increased
Dr. Nancy Baxter of the
University of Minnesota
Cancer Center, the study's
lead author, said it is unclear
whether the findings would
apply to younger women or to
men, whose bones tend to be
denser than women's.
Doctors .should offer
women who have received
radiation for pelvic-area can-
cer bone-density scans and
treatment that might protect
/tthenm from fractures -
including calcium, medication
and weight-bearing exercise,
Baxter said.

Anal cancer patients faced
the biggest risks because
their tumors often spread to
lymph nodes in the groin,
where the hip bones are locat-
ed, Baxter said. It is difficult
to spare that part of the body,
from the radiation.
Baxter said the findings do
not mean women with pelvic-
area cancer should not be
treated with radiation. "For
some 'of these cancers, there's
really ,no alternative," she
Radiation techniques have
improved since the late 1980s
and 1990s, when the study
participants were treated, so
the chances for damage may
be lower for newly diagnosed
patients, Baxter said.

More than 300,000
Americans die each year of
cardiac arrest, when the heart
suddenly stops beating. The
heart association estimates
that more than 95 percent of
cardiac arrest victims die
before they get to the hospital.
Studies show that the chest
compressions create more
blood flow through the heart
to the rest of the body, buying
time until a defibrillator can be
used or the heart can pump
blood on its own. Studies have
also shown that blood'

giving two rescue breaths to
check for signs of circulation
before starting compressions.
The bottom line advice is

Breast-feeding might

help prevent diabetes

AP Medical Writer
CHICAGO - Breast-feed-
ing. is thought to protect
babies from developing dia-
betes. Now research suggests
it might even help keep their
mothers from getting the
disease, too.
A study found that the
longer women nursed,
the lower their risks of
developing diabetes.
The findings are far from
conclusive, but the
researchers say breast-feed-
ing may change mothers'
metabolism in ways
that make the possible
connection plausible.
These metabolic changes
may help keep blood sugar
levels stable and make the
body more sensitive to
the blood sugar-regulating
hormone insulin, said
Dr. Alison Stuebe, the study's
lead author and a researcher
at Boston's Brigham and
Women's Hospital.
SThat theory is partly based
on evidence in rats and
humans showing that breast-
feeding mothers had lower
blood-sugar levels than those
who did not breast-feed.
The new study, published
in Wednesday's Journal of the
American Medical
Association, involved 157,000

nurses who participated in
'two long-running health
studies. They filled
out periodic health
questionnaires and were
followed for at least 12 years.
During the study,
6,277 participants developed
type 2 diabetes.
Women who breast-fed for
at least one year were about
15 percent less likely to
develop type 2 diabetes than
those who never breast-fed.
For each additional year of
breast-feeding, there was an
additional 15 percent
decreased risk.
However, both breast-feed-
ers and bottle-feeders
studied faced very low
absolute risks of developing
the disease.

Mariucci fired

Former 49ers coach
was 15-28 in three
seasons at Detroit.
Associated Press

The Detroit Lions fired coach
Steve Mariucci on Monday
and promoted defensive
coordinator Dick Jauron to
succeed him on an interim
Mariucci's record with the
Lions was 15-28. His 2003
hiring was hailed by fans and
media alike, but he was not
able to turn around a team
that has won one playoff game
since 1957.
"It's hard for me to stand up
here in this position because
Steve is a friend," said Jauron,
who had a 35-46 record as
head coach of the Bears from
After Detroit lost 27-7 to the
Atlanta Falcons on Thanks-
giving to fall to 4-7, reports
swirled that the team was con-
sidering firing Mariucci.
"We started off this season
with high -expectations. I
believed this was a roster that
was capable of making a
playoff run," team president
Matt Millen said at a news
conference. "We have not
.lived up to our expectations.
We have underachieved as a
football team."

Butler during a 17-13 loss to Tampa Bay on Oct. 2 in Tampa.

Millen also fired offensive
line coach Pat Morris and
tight ends coach Andy
The Lions have lost four of
five games since a solid start
put them atop the NFC North
with the Chicago Bears. The
team has collapsed on and off
the field with players failing to
produce and some bickering
with one another and
questioning the coaches'
game plans.
Offensive tackle Jeff
Backus said players had not

been notified of the move.
S"Something had to give, I
guess," Backus told The
Associated Press. "It's not my
job to judge whether Mariucci
did a good job or bad job, but
we're in a bottom-line busi-
ness and our bottom line
hasn't been very good."
Mariucci has more than two
years remaining on the
$25 million contract he signed
in 2003. The Michigan native
came to the Lions from San
Francisco, where he was 60-43
during six seasons.

BCS: Texas, USC close

on marquee matchup

Gator Bowl invites
Louisville to face
ACC opponent.
Associated Press

NEW YORK - Only twice
in Bowl Championship
Series history has a team
been in position to reach the
title game heading into the
final weekend of the regular
season and played its way
Southern California and
Texas will try to avoid
tripping up at the.finish line
Saturday, the way UCLA did
in 1998 and Tennessee did in
Just like all season, the
Trojans and Longhorns were
atop the BCS standings
Monday. USC is first for the
fifth time in six weeks. Texas,
which was on top for one
week, is second again.
The final BCS standings
will be released Sunday and
the top two teams will play in
the Rose Bowl for a national
title. USC and Texas are the
only unbeaten teams left in
Division I-A, but each faces
one more test.
USC (11-0) plays rival
UCLA (9-1) at the Coliseum
on Saturday. Texas (11-0) will
meet Colorado (7-4) in 'the
Big 12 title game at Reliant
Stadium in Houston. Both
the Longhorns and Trojans
are favored by at least three

touchdowns, so only a major
upset will prevent them for
meeting in Pasadena, Calif.,
on Jan. 4.
Since the BCS was
implemented, nine teams
have played games on the
final weekend of the season
ranked either first or second
in the standings. Those
teams are 6-3, and none that
were No. 1 failed to reach the
championship game.

Gator Bowl signs Cards
Hours after accepting a bid to
its first January bowl in 15
years, 16th-ranked Louisville
found out it will have to finish
its season without star
quarterback Brian Brohm.
A magnetic resonance
imaging test on Monday.
revealed Brohm tore the
anterior cruciate ligament
and suffered a bone bruise
and meniscus tear in his
right knee while scrambling
in the third quarter .of
Louisville's 41-17 win over
Syracuse last Saturday.
Brohm will miss the sea-
son finale at Connecticut on
Saturday and the Gator Bowl
in Jacksonville on Jan. 2.
"We're obviously disap-
pointed in losing Brian for
the year," Louisville head
coach Bobby Petrino said.
"Brian was having a great
season, and he was a big part
of our success."

Backup quarterbacks have their day

Missed field goals costly
for Giants, as Seahawks
near division title.
Associated Press

It was a good day to be a backup
quarterback in the NFL - and a bad
day to be Jay Feely.
Reserve quarterbacks Ryan
Fitzpatrick, Mike McMahon and
David Garrard all led their teams to
victory on a day when New York
Giants kicker Feely missed three field
goals - including two in overtime -
in a loss to Seattle.
Feely failed on the final play of
regulation from 40 yards, then
couldn't hit from 54 and 45 yards
inovertime. Seattle used a 38-yard
pass from Matt Hasselbeck to D.J.
Hackett to get close for a 36-yarder
from Josh.Brown to win 24-21.
"People are going to say it's a team
game," Feely said. "But the fact of the
matter is you have to come through
when you have one opportunity -
much less two good opportunities."
St. Louis rookie Fitzpatrick capped
an improbable comeback with a
56-yard TD pass to Kevin Curtis in
overtime, giving the Rams a 33-27 win
over the Houston Texans.
"I knew there was no way we were
going to lose that game," the seventh-
round pick from Harvard said. "You
sort of get that feeling out there, of
invincibility, with the way the offense
was playing late and the way the
defense really stepped up."
Garrard, who had taken one snap all
season before Sunday, stepped in after
Jacksonville starter Byron Leftwich
broke his left ankle and ran for a
16-yard score in the Jaguars' 24-17 win
over Arizona.
'That's my job to step in when
Byron goes down," Garrard said, "and
it's happened now, so I've got to step
up and do my job and everyone here
has my back."
McMahon, starting his second
game for Philadelphia in place of the
injured Donovan McNabb, was
unspectacular but efficient in a 19-14
win over Green Bay that snapped a
four-game losing streak.
"It's not always pretty, but it's nice to
get a win," said kicker David Akers,
who made four field goals.
On Thursday, Atlanta beat Detroit
27-7 and Denver defeated Dallas 24-21
in overtime.

Jacksonvillle Jaguars' Reggie Hayward sacks Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt
Warner (13) during the fourth quarter Sunday at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.

Seahawks 24, Giants 21

At Seattle, Shaun Alexander rushed
31 times for 110 yards, 94 after
halftime, and former Giant Joe
Jurevicius had eight receptions for 137
yards and two touchdowns for Seattle.
The Giants, led by quarterback Eli
Manning's career day, fell to 7-4
instead of being 8-3 for the first time
since their 2000 Super Bowl season.
They are tied with Dallas for first place
in the NFC East and host the Cowboys
next Sunday.
The Seahawks have the best record
in the NFC and need one win or a
St. Louis loss to clinch their second
consecutive NFC West title.

Bears 13, Buccaneeers 10
At Tampa, Alex Brown sacked Chris
Simms to force a fumble that set up
Chicago's only touchdown, and helped

the Bears to their first seven-game
winning streak since 1986.
Matt Bryant missed a potential
tying 29-yard field goal attempt for the
Bucs with 2:47 to go.
Kyle Orton threw for 134 yards and
a TD and Robbie Gould kicked field
goals of 25 and 36 yards for the Bears.
Brown finished with two sacks and his
third forced fumble in two weeks. He
also batted down three passes in the

Jaguars 24, Cardinals 17
At Tempe, Ariz., Derrick Wimbush
returned a kick 91 yards for a
touchdown and the Jaguars won their
fourth straight.
Kurt Warner hit Larry Fitzgerald
with a 5-yard touchdown pass to cut
the lead to 24-17 with 2:56 remaining
but Arizona never got a legitimate
scoring chance after that.

Chiefs 26, Patriots 16

At Kansas City, Larry Johnson ran
for 119 yards and a touchdown and
safety Greg Wesley had three of the
Chiefs' four interceptions.
Two of Wesley's interceptions set up
field goals by Lawrence Tvnes. who
tied an NFL record with four in one
period for the Chiefs.
Tom Brady finished 22-of-40 for
228 yards for New England.

Panthers 13, Bills 9
At Orchard Park, N.Y., ' ake
Delhomme threw a 3-yard touchdown
pass to third-string tight end Michael
Gaines with 2:16 left to put the
Panthers on top in the NFC North.
The last chance for the Bills ended
when Chris :Gamble intercepted J.P
Losman's throw to Roscoe Parrish in
the left flat in the final minute.

Vikings 24, Browns 12
At Minneapolis, Brad Johnson
threw three touchdown passes to
Marcus Robinson, each of them set up
by Cleveland turnovers, and the
Vikings won their fourth straight.
Rookie C.J. Mosley and Keith
Newman both forced fumbles by
Trent Dilfer with sacks, leading to
Robinson's first two scores.
Reuben Droughns ran 19 times for a
tough 73 yards and had five receptions
for 46 yards, but he had only five
,carries after halftime for Cleveland.

Eagles 19, Packers 14
At Philadelphia, Akers made four
field goals to help the Eagles snap
their losing streak. ,
Samkon Gado ran for 111 yards and
one touchdown for the Packers, who
are assured of their first losing season
since Brett Favre took over as starter
in 1992. That run of 13 years was the
best in the league.

Rams 33, Texans 27
At Houston, St. Louis rallied from a
21-point halftime deficit and scored
10 points in the final 30 seconds of the
fourth quarter to force overtime.
Isaac Bruce scored on a 43-yard
pass with 26 seconds left and the Rams
recovered an onside kick. Torry Holt

ARIES (March 21-April
19): Whatever isn't paying
you back or working for you
must be stopped. You've been
working too long and too
hard. Your generosity has
become a hindrance, so get
back to doing what counts.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Bend over backward for
an older friend or relative.
Now isn't the best time to take
on another responsibility but,
by doing so, you will please
someone who will make a
difference in your future.

GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Try to settle down a lit-
tle and focus on one thing.
Multitasking is fine, but not
today. Put your thoughts on
paper. You can get your point
across if you are precise.

CANCER (June 21-July
22): You may have some
ninor disputes with older or
younger people. Today is
bout love, getting along and
loing things that will bring

Eugenia Word

you closer to someone you
truly care about. *****
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Don't let little things depress
you. Everything is OK, even if
you can't see the light at the
end of the tunnel. Ignore the
negative and you will see
some good possibilities to
work toward. **
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): You're in dreamland, so
shake yourself before it's too
late. Someone may try to take
advantage of you when he or
she doesn't, think you'll.
notice. Keep a sharp eye while
taking part in fun activities.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): You can make your pro-
fessional position more inter-
esting. A new way of doing
things or a chance to try
something different will bring
you greater recognition.
Include friends and family in
your ideas. ***

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Things are either mov-.
ing way too fast or way too
slow. Get used to it. Today will
be a repeat of the past and an
indicator of the future. Base
your actions on your past
experience. ***
Dec. 21): Do something that
will help your self-esteem.
Spending time with someone
you respect will change your
attitude and give you some
great ideas about things you
Should pursue. *** '
CAPRICORN -(Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): Don't let someone
take advantage of you
because of your interest in
him or her. If you can keep
things even, you stand a bet-
ter chance of gaining respect
and getting what you want.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Take your time and
do things by the book or you
may face ridicule for what you
didn't do. Sudden changes
will affect your future. Don't
be discouraged - you need
more time. **
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): You'll be hard to resist
no matter what you do.
Everyone will be looking to
you for answers. Don't let it
go to your head. One slip up
and you may get caught in the
middle. *****

tainties that will hold you
back. You. are respected,

DEAR ABBY: My fiance,
"Andy,"'and I are being mar-
ried soon. From the first time
that Andy met my friend.
"Doug," they did not get along.
Doug and I have known
each other since elementary
school. We are very close - in
a sibling sort of way, as far as
I'm concerned. When we're all
together, just the three of us or
in a large group, Doug makes
subtle or sarcastic comments
about Andy both to his face
and behind his back. Andy has
been very' tolerant, at my
request, although he wants to
"have words" with Doug. Andy
has also expressed recently
that he doesn't like the way
Doug casually touches me,
which I hadn't really noticed
until he pointed it out. What I
can't understand is: Why?
Everyone I know who meets
Doug or has known him for a
few years, including my par-
ents, are convinced he is gay.
As close as I am to him, I can't
tell one way or the other. His
mannerisms are effeminate, he
doesn't involve .himself with

Abigail Van Buren
women, he loves to shop with
me and his mother, his taste is
exquisite - among other
stereotypical "signs." But he
has not come out. If he's gay,
the casual touching is a little
odd. If he's straight, I don't
want to lose his friendship.
I'm terrified of asking Doug
if he's gay. He seems to take
offense at the notion; and I
don't want to embarrass either
one of us. But I need a way to
tell him to calm down, without
making it seem as if I'm against
him now that I'm being
married. Can you help me? -
Doug may be so deeply closet-
ed that he isn't even out to him-
self, so don't ask him. Whether
he's gay or straight is beside
the point. His manners are ter-
rible. Doug is showing hostility
and disrespect to the man you
are going to marry.
What you should say to him
is that you had hoped you
would be friends for a lifetime,
but it's not going to happen if
he continues treating Andy this
way. Inform him that he owes

your fiance an apology, and
that you'd appreciate it if he
backed off and kept his hands
to himself, because frankly, it's
making you uncomfortable.
After that, it's his choice as to
whether he wants to build
bridges or put himself on the
boyfriend beats me .almost

try. There are people who are
unable to achieve sexual satis-
faction unless they hurt their
partners. These people are
called sadists. There are also
people who enjoy being pun-
ished in this way. They are
called masochists: Unless you
are a masochist, and it does not
appear that you are, this man is
not for you. His behavior could
escalate to the point that you
could be seriously injured.
My advice is to end the rela-
tionship now. If you allow this
pattern to continue, you'll need

Authorities on scene said the man did not consent to field sobriety tests but was suspected to have been drinking. Local r esidents said this was the second serious accident on Herlong that day.Photos by STEVEN RICHMOND /Lake City ReporterTOP: Conrad Quick and his father Bob Quick take a breather a t a Columbia County fire station after cycling around 2,991 miles on their journey from San D iego to St. Augustine, trying to raise $1,000,000 dollars for charities and hospitals. ABOVE: Conrad Quick (left), county firefighter Steve Bedenbaugh, Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Crawford, Lt. Collin Redish listen as Bob Quick explains trials and tribulations he’s faced after receiving 16 heart stents and a pacemake r defibrillator. “My beard used to be a lot longer, too,” Bob Quick said. “I had to cut it shorter after it got cau ght in my bike chain one day.” Christmas comes early at Avalon Healthcare ‘We’re here to bring hope to other people.’ By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comBetty Jolly held bright pink slippers in one hand and a chocolate cupcake in the other as she kissed several of the teenagers visiting Avalon Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center Tuesday afternoon. For her and many of the other residents, the gift of time and basic necessi-ties from a local teenager and his friends brightened the day. “Everybody loves to be loved,” Jolly said. “You don’t see many younger people coming into see the older people. They don’t like old people.” Skyler Colley, a local 14-year-old, doesn’t ask for the typical gifts for his September birthday. Instead, he asks for items such as slippers, lotion, clothes and notebooks that he can donate to local nursing homes. He spent Tuesday handing out the early Christmas presents, as well as taking the time to talk with the residents. About two years ago, Skyler decided to make his birthday mean something more. “I felt like there are people around the world who don’t get anything at all,” he said. “I asked my mom: ‘This year, can I give away my presents?’” The Colley family tracked down a nursing home where he thought he could do the most good, and they found Avalon. According to Skyler, more than half the residents do not have regular visitors. By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comMore than 2,991 miles and 86 days after beginning their trek, 56-year-old Bob Quick and his son, Conrad Quick, arrived in Lake City Monday afternoon on their cross-country cycling jour-ney from San Diego. to St. Augustine. Bob Quick’s Journey, as they call it, has been on the road since Sept. 6 and aims to raise $1,000,000 spread between five groups: Special Olympics, McKay-Dee Hospital Center, Primary Children’s Hospital, the Roy City, Utah Fire Department and the Wounded Warrior Project. “I don’t know how much we’ve raised so far and I don’t want to know until we get to St. Augustine,” Bob Quick said. He and his son rode into town on their two bikes: A Scott Sub-10 named “The Animal” and a Raleigh Sojourn dubbed “The Mule”—appropriately named, considering equip-ment and supplies that collectively add up to 300 pounds. However, you won’t see Bob Quick’s greatest bur-den until he takes his shirt off and reveals a small rect-angular lump just below his left shoulder. “I’ve had 16 heart stents and had a pacemaker defi-brillator put in me,” he said. “I’m the first guy like this to make a journey of this magnitude.” Bob Quick was a National Guard veteran, chef with the Roy City, Utah Fire Pair bikes 3,000 miles for charity. Betty Jolly, 80-year-old resident at Avalon Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, kisses Garet Dicks on the cheek after he gave her a cupcake Tuesday afternoon. Garet spent the evening with his friend Skyler Colley and five other local students at Avalon to hand out gifts to the residents. School financesholding steadyBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comThough the Columbia County School Board made it through November pay-rolls without withdrawing funds from a loan, the finance director said she will have a better idea of how the budget looks by January. Finance Director Bonnie Penner was unable to make the monthly financial report scheduled for the school board meeting on Tuesday night, but she provided a bulleted list to board mem-bers on necessary updates. The board reviewed it during the meeting, then moved on to approve a small list of agenda items before the Thanksgiving holiday. According to Penner’s update, budget Fugitive Lake Butler teen caught by deputies By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County sheriff’s deputies apprehended a Lake Butler man nearly a month after he escaped from the back of a Union County deputy’s patrol vehicle, CCSO reports. Julian Demetrius Merriex, 19, of Lake Butler, was arrest-ed at 1:00 a.m. Tuesday after a Columbia County deputy was doing a rou-tine property check of the Budget Inn, the arrest report said. It all began when Columbia and Union County deputies were searching for a 15-year-old Fort White High female student who had allegedly run away with Merriex around Oct. 29, according to UCSO. The girl’s sister said Merriex was giving the student prescrip-tion pills and that he was giving her a place stay while on the run, UCSO said. Law enforcement located the couple at their last known loca-tion before they began to flee on foot through nearby woods, the report said. Once authorities apprehended the couple after a two-and-a-half hour search with K-9 units, they found the girl had superficial wounds over 50 percent of her body, the report said. Then, as a deputy was transporting him out of his vehicle in the Union County Jail parking lot, Merriex escaped, deputies said. He had somehow shifted his body so his cuffed hands were in front of him before he forcibly pushed open the patrol vehicle’s door and took off on foot, UCSO said. The deputy allegedly could not maintain Merriex’s pace and lost sight of him.

Zeljko Causevic, 39, has been in jail on $1 million bail since Oct. 1, when he was arrested on charges that he falsely told a secu-rity screener that he had a bomb in his backpack as he tried to enter the airport’s passenger area. His claim led to a five-hour closure at the airport, the cancel-lation of dozens of flights and the stranding of pas-sengers overnight. Many passengers were stuck on airplanes for hours before being transported back to the terminal. The truck driver’s backpack only contained an electronic scale, two batteries and a microchip, authorities said. U.S. Magistrate Judge James Klindt ruled on Nov. 20 that Causevic suffered from “a mental disease or defect rendering him men-tally incompetent” to stand trial. Causevic initially was supposed to be sent to a medical facility sometime after Christmas, but Klindt said U.S. Marshals decided to send him earlier due to his pressing health condi-tions. Causevic was being transported to the Federal Medical Center, Butner, early Tuesday. Klindt ordered Causevic to stay there indefinitely, even after medical officials complete a report on his mental competency, to avoid having to transport him between Jacksonville and North Carolina as the case proceeds. During a hearing Tuesday, Klindt said he wants to be updated on Causevic’s status. “We have lost track of these kinds of defendants at times in the past,” he told a prosecutor and defense attorney.Zimmerman had 5 guns when arrestedSANFORD — George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month on domestic violence charges, according to court docu-ments released Tuesday. A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriend’s house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table. Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. He has entered a written plea of not guilty.Orlando cop shoots, kills man during stop ORLANDO — Orlando police say an officer fatally shot a suspect who tried to run over him during a traf-fic stop. The officer pulled the vehicle over Tuesday morning after authorities issued a lookout for a per-son who fled an attempted traffic stop nearby. According to authorities, when the officer stepped out of his patrol car and approached the vehicle, the driver attempted to run over him. He struck the officer’s patrol car. The officer discharged his fire-arm, killing the man. Police say the officer will be on administrative leave, pending an investigation.Couric to anchor Yahoo’s news coverageSAN FRANCISCO K atie Couric is join-ing Yahoo to anchor an expansion of the Internet company’s video news coverage in a move that she hopes will help persuade other broadcast TV veter-ans make the transition into online programming. Monday’s announcement confirms recent published reports that Couric is hoping to attract more viewers on the Internet after spending the past 22 years working as a talk-show host and news anchor at NBC, CBS and ABC. “I am particularly excited about hopefully attracting other people to this platform and venture,” Couric said in an interview with The Associated Press. “We are in a major, transformative time in terms of media in this country.” Financial terms of Couric’s contract with Yahoo weren’t disclosed. She also declined to say how many more reporters will be added to her team at Yahoo. Couric, 56, will continue to host her daytime talk show, “Katie,” on ABC even after she becomes Yahoo’s “global anchor” beginning early next year. She described her now role at Yahoo as a “work in progress.” “I will be involved in developing a lot of concepts, but not necessarily doing everything,” Couric said. “I will be doing interviews, but not on a daily basis. Probably monthly at this point.”‘Sleep No More’ adds a restaurant and intrigue NEW YORK — A new restaurant opening this week in New York has more than just good food on the menu. The British theater company Punchdrunk unveils a chic eatery as part of its immersive, genre-bending show “Sleep No More,” promising patrons yummy roasts, savory pies and something else. “If you’re curious, if you’re observant, maybe you’ll notice that things aren’t always as they seem,” says Felix Barrett, the company founder. “We’re trying to create a space that’s full of surprises.” The 140-seat restaurant, called The Heath, will be run by chef R.L. King, a veteran of Il Buco and Hundred Acres. The food is high-end British and the space is dimly lit elegant. Barrett, a self-confessed foodie, always planned on adding a res-taurant to “Sleep No More” when Punchdrunk acquired three empty adjoining warehouses in the Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood and renamed it the McKittrick Hotel. He filled five stories of the warehouses with hundreds of rooms, a cemetery and an indoor forest to create a theater-and-dance piece with elements of both Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” and Alfred Hitchcock. But he and his team ran out of time and left the sixth floor empty.Ron Burgundy to ‘call’ Olympic selection tourn. BRITISH COLUMBIA — Stay classy, curlers.

It’s hard to find that, especially in teenagers.” For the second year in a row, Skyler’s birthday — in a sense— was spent at Avalon, Culbreath added. And this year, his passion has spread. He brought six friends with him to help hand out gifts. His goal is to get more participation every year. “People just don’t realize how many people here don’t have visi-tors,” Skyler said. “Imagine if you’ve been sitting in a nursing home for years without anyone coming to visit you. That’s what some of them are going through.” As Skyler and his friends walked from room to room, handing out gifts and smiles, the residents thanked them. Some residents held on to the teenagers’ hands, tears pooling in their eyes. Others offered kisses, hugs and returning smiles. “What really caught me was when Mr. Ricky said it’s really nice to see that someone actually cares about us,” said one of Skyler’s friends, Logan MacLaren. “It made me feel nice to be able to come help people out.” Skyler carried a homemade quilt into one of the nursing home rooms, covering 88-year-old Betty Weaver with its soft floral print. Skyler and Weaver talked for a bit about her grandson, who graduated from the University of Florida, and her nine grandchildren. She told him how nice it was for the group to visit. “It makes you feel good because it’s so lonesome here,” Weaver said. “You’re in a strange place.” Skyler, his friends and his mother, Helen, all thanked the caregivers at Avalon Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center for everything they do for the residents. Skyler wants to start an adopt-agrandparent program where teenag-ers find an elderly individual living in one of the nursing homes around town and visit him or her a couple times a month. It would give the students the chance to spend their Saturday doing something meaningful, he added. He has also planned to form a community group that will help with service projects around town, such as volunteering at the animal shelter, visiting nursing home and stop bully-ing at the local schools. “I can’t put into words how proud I am,” Helen Colley said. “It gives me chills. I feel like he’s already done more in his 14 years than I’ve done in my life. ... I actually think they’re on to some-thing. If they continue on this path, I think they will accomplish a lot more in this town than we can imagine.” doing a routine check of the Budget Inn when he noticed a while female—the same runaway girl from before—make eye contact and hide in one of the rooms, the report said. The deputy recognized a nearby black male claiming to be “Alfonzo Johnson” but later rec-ognized him as the same male involved in the girl’s runaway in late October, the report said. When the deputy expressed his surprise that he was no longer wear-ing handcuffs, Merriex replied, “I cut them off myself,” the report said. Merriex was arrested and successfully booked in Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $97,500 bond. He faces charges of contributing to the delinquen-cy of a minor, kidnapping a minor, child neglect (due to her wounds during the woodland chase), provid-ing a false name and escap-ing police custody. He also faces charges from two previous incidents for bat-tery and marijuana posses-sion under 20 grams. estimates for salaries and benefits continue to look sufficient. “Although we are almost half way through the year, the holidays at the end of November and December cause timing issues with the payment of bills,” Penner report-ed. “I expect to have a better idea at the end of January.” Other issues approved during the meeting included: • Approve the District Bandwidth Support Grant for Columbia County School District in the amount of $40,081 • Approve revisions to the following Procedures Manuals: District Testing Procedures Manual, Maintenance, Maintenance of Student Records, School Food Service, Special Services, Transportation and Technology • Request permission for the Tigerettes to com-pete at the Mardi Gras Spirit Competition in Hershey, Penn. and New York City on March 7-12, 2014.

A Columbia County firefighter passed hot plates of scrambled eggs and cheese to the Quicks as they watched rain fall out-side the window of county fire station 48 along Race Track Road. “These guys here are the real hometown heroes,” he said. “They train everyday for what they do.

In 1910, New York’s Pennsylvania Station officially opened. In 1939, the play “Key Largo,” by Maxwell Anderson, opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theater in New York. No room for giants in DC N ot that you would ever want to, but let’s say for the sake of argu-ment that you needed to start a brawl in the nation’s capital among an otherwise reputable gathering of Washington, D.C., landowners, urban planners, developers, the heads of large trade organizations, apartment dwellers and ordinary homeowners.You couldn’t go far wrong bringing up the capital’s height limit on buildings, basically 20 feet higher than the width of the street the building faces. The happy result is that there are great vistas of the monuments, the streets are light and airy, there are plenty of downtown trees because the sunlight can reach the streets and the city has developed a lively and pleasant sidewalk caf culture. The unhappy result is that rents are high, large spaces are hard to come by, the downtown architec-ture runs heavily to nearly identical glass cubes and the landowners are missing big bucks because they can’t maximize the buildings they’re like to erect on their hold-ings and the District of Columbia can’t collect the higher taxes the larger buildings would pay. The National Capital Planning Commission is about to propose lifting the heights limits on new buildings on the periphery of the city but the commissioners face a highly skeptical local popula-tion that likes the way things are. “Manhattanization” is a dirty word to them. It seems silly but the tallest privately owned building in the capi-tal of the country that gave us sky-scrapers is only 164-feet and even that was a scandal when it was built in 1894 prompting Congress to quickly pass the Height Of Buildings Act of 1899. Basically a privately owned building in the District can’t be more than 20 feet taller than the width of the street it faces. For the most part, we’re looking at 12 sto-ries. The residents seem to like it that way.... Next time you’re in Washington and the gathering starts to slow down, offer as your considered opinion, “There’s nothing wrong with this town that a few 60-story mixed use buildings on all that wasted space by the Lincoln Memorial couldn’t fix.” Have your spouse waiting outside in the car with the motor running.Arabs live in Israel, too JERUSALEM T he Star of David on Israel’s flag is no sur-prise in a Knesset mem-ber’s office. What seems unusual in Israel’s parliament is just two yards away: an engraved icon bearing an Islamic prayer in Arabic script. “I am Israeli,” says Issawi Frej, an Arab member of the Knesset (MK). “I am a citizen here. I want to be here.” The Meretz Party representative also tells me: “The American people don’t under-stand that there are 1.5 million Palestinian Arabs who live inside Israel, and who are Israelis with rights. Americans think about the Palestinian Authority only, and no one thinks about us.” Elected last January, Frej says he wants to increase economic growth in Israel’s Arab communi-ties. “We don’t want the National Insurance to give us a cart of money just to eat. We want to be part of the economy, to give to the economy, to translate our force and our power in order to give a push to the local economy. That’s what we want.” Frej, the eldest of a dozen children and father of seven, is one of 12 Arab MKs. They and other Arabs hold prominent posts in Israel’s courts, diplomatic corps, and armed forces. While power-ful Israeli Jews clearly outnumber powerful Israeli Arabs, American journalists generally overlook the latter. Leaders like Frej disprove the tired, toxic rhetoric about “Jim Crovitz”-style conditions that Israel’s Arabs supposedly suffer at the hands of Jewish oppressors, as if Israel were Mississippi on the Mediterranean. No one can dismiss these Arab Israeli parliamentarians as window dressing. During the 120-seat Knesset’s debate on allowing a national referendum on a future Palestinian accord, Arab Israeli MK Jamal Zahalka told govern-ment minister Yuval Steinitz: “You’re an enemy of peace. We were here before you, and we’ll be here after you.” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who attended the debate, snapped: “The first part is not true, and the second part will never happen.” While these Arab MKs’ comments may rankle most Israelis and their American friends, such dissent confirms Israel’s status as an open and vibrant constitutional republic, unlike so many closed dictatorships in this chronically diseased neighborhood. Meanwhile, Salim Joubran has been an Arab on Israel’s 15-mem-ber Supreme Court since 2003. Abdel Rahman Zuabi also served there for a fixed term in 1999. Arab judges populate Israel’s district courts. George Kara led a three-judge panel in 2010 that convicted former president Moshe Katsav of rape. “We have had Arab ambassadors and consuls-general for decades,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokes-man Yigal Palmor tells me. “We now have two Druze ambassadors, in Norway and the Dominican Republic.” Arabs excel in Israel’s military, some even as generals. Lieutenant colonel Magdi Mazarib is an Islamic member of Israel’s 260,000-Bedouin Arab minority. He also is the Israel Defense Force’s top-ranking tracker. Many of the IDF’s 1,655 Bedouins use their nomadic skills to detect infiltrators along Israel’s borders. They can inspect rocks and sand and deter-mine where and when a foe has trespassed. “This is our country,” Mazarib told Agence-France Presse last April. He added that he does not fear the Star of David on Israel’s banner, despite being Muslim. “The flag of England also has a cross on it, and the Jews are fine with it.” What about the back of this shekel? Bahrain’s Jewish popula-tion numbers only 38, but three serve in parliament. Houda Nonoo, a Jewish woman, is finish-ing as its ambassador to America. Also, Serge Berdugo is Morocco’s Jewish Minister of Tourism. Still, Jewish officials in the Arab world are rarer than menorahs in Mecca. Though Israel’s Jews and Arabs clash, they also cooperate far more than most journalists admit. Issawi Frej points to his Knesset spokesman, a recovering news-man named Moran Richman. “I am Israeli,” Frej says. “Moran, he is Jewish, and he is Israeli. Both of us are Israeli. This country should include both of us, and both of us should take care of this country.” W hen the painkiller Oxycontin was introduced in 1996, physicians were assured by its manufactur-er, Purdue Pharma, that it was less addictive than other drugs in its class, and safe even for those in high-risk groups. Doctors started using it to treat all manner of ailment, including pain from fairly minor surgery. But as early as 2001 addictions to this narcotic began to soar, and it soon became clear the maker’s claims just didn’t add up. In 2007, Pharma pleaded guilty to criminal charges of misleading patients, physi-cians and government regulators about the addictive dangers of the drug, and paid $600 million in penalties and fines. The rest of us are still paying.Oxycontin isn’t the only prescription painkiller abused on a massive scale in America. It just gets most of the attention.Still, it was welcome news that the statewide blitz against pill mills and prescrip-tion drug abuse seems to be holding, especially here in Columbia County. That’s not to say that things are rosy in the war on drugs, of course. Among the alternatives that have swooped in to help fill the void is meth-amphetamine, which as Sheriff Mark Hunter noted in an article on yesterday’s front page, remains a serious problem here and across the land. One problem at a time, though.Meanwhile, local and state efforts against prescription drug abuse, and the pill mills that fuel it, deserve our grati-tude.

White House welcomes review of health law disputeAssociated PressWASHINGTON — The White House is welcoming the Supreme Court’s deci-sion to referee another dis-pute over President Barack Obama’s health care law. It involves a provision that requires most companies that offer health insurance to their workers to include contraception among a range of preventive health benefits. White House spokesman Jay Carney says the administration believes the justices will agree that the mandate is lawful and essential to women’s health. The Obama administration had asked the high court to consider a legal challenge to the require-ment. The issue has divid-ed the lower courts. Justices will hear arguments, probably in late By TERRY COLLINSAssociated PressOAKLAND — When he saw a woman jumping from the upper deck at the Oakland Raiders’ stadium on Sunday, Donnie Navidad said his military instincts immedi-ately kicked in as he lunged forward trying to catch her. But though he was injured in the process and authorities say he saved the woman’s life, he maintains that he’s no hero and that he would do it again. “I just wished I would’ve grabbed her and held on to her,” Navidad said. “I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t do anything.” Both Navidad and the woman hit the concrete hard from the impact about 15 minutes after the Raiders’ 23-19 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Navidad said he was among several people plead-ing with the woman not to jump as he positioned himself to try catching her. When she plunged about 45 feet from the upper deck at the Coliseum, Navidad, with his arms open, ended up break-ing her fall. The 61-year-old Marine Corps veteran was hospi-talized overnight and was recuperating from a severely bruised arm at his home in Stockton. “He simply saved her life,” Alameda County sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. “Otherwise, she’d be dead.” The woman remained hospitalized in critical condi-tion. Her name has not been released. A Raiders season ticket holder, Navidad said he was with a buddy lingering near the Al Davis commemorative flame at the Coliseum when he saw and heard the com-motion around the woman, who was on the ledge in the upper deck concourse area that’s covered by tarp. “I yelled up at her yelling, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it. Please don’t jump,’” Navidad said. “And she started to descend and she let herself go.” Navidad said his military instincts kicked in as he lunged toward the woman trying to catch her. “He couldn’t grab and hold her, and that’s what bothers him,” his wife, Lora Navidad, said Monday. “He had no fear or thought for his own well-being.” Navidad said well-wishers have besieged him, including Raiders’ hall of fame corner-back Willie Brown, who vis-ited personally. Team officials came to his home, and he received a phone call from Hall of Fame wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff. Nelson, who visited Navidad in the hospital Sunday evening, called him “a hero.” Navidad, a father of four with 12 grandkids who works as an inventory surveillance worker for the General Services Administration in nearby French Camp, Calif., modestly thinks otherwise. “They want to label me a hero, but how do you define a hero?” Navidad asks. “I would’ve done it for any-body.” Q Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist in Gainesville. Dear Pharmacist, I have Hashimoto thyroiditis, can I take thyroid supplements that contain iodine? — K.S., Seattle, Washington Answer: Hashimoto’s or “Hashi’s” is an auto-immune condition that affects the thyroid gland, causing clinical symp-toms of hypothyroidism. I know there’s controversy regarding iodine supple-mentation. I am aware that a sudden increase in iodine can cause a bad reaction, but I don’t think Hashi sufferers should avoid iodine altogether. Iodine levels have fallen over 50 percent during the last 40 years. During that same timeframe, Hashi’s has increased at epidemic rates. Common sense will tell you iodine is not the cause for this rise in Hashimoto’s. This next statement is huge: Hashimoto’s disease is far impacted more by your selenium status, than iodine. If you take iodine in the presence of selenium deficiency, it’s bad news (and the same can be said for excessive selenium). That’s the key, selenium deficiency causes an intol-erance of iodine, especially high dose iodine. When I hear of a Hashi sufferer having a bad experience with iodine, all that says to me is that they were selenium defi-cient, or they took a bad form of iodine, or too high of a dose. You can’t give iodine to a selenium deficient person, you have to ‘prime the pump’ by giving sele-nium beforehand, or right along with it. The opposite is true too, giving seleni-um to Hashi patients with-out some iodine will cause huge problems too. Like everything else in life, it is about balance. I’ve read studies suggesting iodine to be bad for Hashi sufferers, but the participants in the study lived in geographic areas known to be severe-ly deficient in selenium. Studies like this frame iodine as the bad guy but remember what I said about priming the pump before giving iodine? I don’t recommend high dose iodine (6mg or more) unless your overnight urinalysis proves you are deficient. You only need a few milligrams or less, but to avoid it at all costs makes me worry about your reproductive organs. You see, natural iodine supports breast health, as well as the prostate, testicular, endometrial, ovarian and cervical. It’s extremely protective. I lost my mother-in-law to breast cancer, which is tied to iodine deficiency. Drug mugging is huge in the Hashi com-munity. May folks take fluorinated drugs, caus-ing more depletions of iodine because fluorine is a drug mugger of iodine. Shocker! Here’s a few: Flurazepam (Dalmane), atorvastatin (Lipitor), cele-coxib (Celebrex), levo-floxacin (Levaquin) and lansoprazole (Prevacid). I’m not bent on high dose iodine, but low doses may be necessary to get-ting well, and it needs to be in combination with selenium. Generally speaking, I disagree with supplements that make more and more thyroid hormone. Most of you cannot even use what you have! I think we need to focus on two other more important things. One, getting thyroid hormone activated to T3, and two, getting the T3 into the cell. Only then do you see symptoms clear up, such as cold sensitivity, hair loss, fatigue and slow metabolism.Big news for thyroid diseaseHashimoto’s disease is far impacted more by your selenium status, than iodine. DEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Man: No fear trying to catch woman UM hospital opening new helipadAssociated PressMIAMI — The University of Miami Hospital is opening a new helicopter pad that will provide greater access to medical care for patients, includ-ing those from the Bahamas. Bahamas Minister of Health Dr. Perry Gomez is attending Monday’s official opening of the helipad on the hospital’s fifth floor, along with hospital officials and University of Miami President Donna Shalala. Hospital CEO Dan Snyder says in addition to patients the helipad will be a key drop-off point for medi-cal supplies and personnel. It will also enable people from across the Americas to more easily take part in the hospital’s research and clinical trials. The University of Miami Hospital has 560 beds and allows access to physicians and other caregiv-ers from the Miller School of Medicine. Eyebrow waxing, lattes at the drugstore?Associated PressAt some Walgreen stores, there are health clinics staffed by nurse practitioners, cafes that sell barista-prepared coffee and Eyebrow Bars where trained professionals groom unruly facial hair. Oh, and pharmacists fill prescriptions, too. The nation’s major drugstore chains are opening more in-store clinics and offering more health care products in part to serve an aging population that will need more care. It’s also a response to the massive U.S. health care overhaul, which is expected to add about 25 million newly insured people who will need medi-cal care and prescriptions. And drugstores are offer-ing more services as a way to boost revenue in the face of competition from retailers like Safeway and Wal-Mart that have added in-store pharmacies. “It became a marketplace where everybody was doing a little bit of everybody else’s stuff,” said Jack Horst, man-ager at Kurt Salmon. “There are so many other options for people these days in terms of finding an outlet for filling a prescription.” You may not think about me very much, but I am your shoulder. I am the most mobile joint in your body. I can do a lot of things. I can throw a baseball, swing a tennis racquet, or roll a bowl-ing ball. I can pull back on a ERZVWULQJRUKROGDULHRUshotgun in place. I can help you play piano or trumpet, or beat a drum. I help you brush your teeth and hair, put on your shirt and pants and to put on your socks and shoes. You see, I am very useful.Unfortunately, I am also the most unstable joint in your body. I am not held together by bone, but by soft tissues like your rotator cuff muscles, tendons and ligaments. They allow me to move all over the place, but also make it easier for me to get hurt. Of all the joints in your body, I am the most likely to sustain an injury, and once injured, I can wreak havoc on your life. Try to brush your hair or make a sandwich, or hold a steering wheel if I am injured! I will let you know I’m unhappy by hurting.Most of my injuries do not require surgery, but some may.

BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Dekarry Rossin goes up for a shot against Union County High in the Tigers win on Tuesday. Indians beat Wave in district opener Columbia dunks Union County, 79-43 By BRANDON FINLEY Columbia High opened up its home schedule with a convincing win over another set of Tigers on Tuesday. The home Tigers started strong and never looked back in a 79-43 win against visiting Union County High. Columbia started the game on a 5-0 run before Union County scored its first basket and had a 10-point lead after a steal and free throw on the foul by Tre Simmons. Dillan Halls dunk made it 18-3 and the Tigers would lead 20-5 after the first quarter. Darrell Jones had the hottest start, scoring seven points in the first quarter. Union County started the second quarter on a 13-6 run before Hall hit a threepoint shot to give Columbia a 29-18 lead with 2:30 to play in the first half. Hall then had a steal on the next play to make it 31-18. Jordan Coppocks three made it 37-19 with 1:02 to play in the first half and the Tigers led 40-21 at the break. The Tigers broke out of the second half with a 16-8 run and Simmons closed out the quarter with backto-back three-point shots to give Columbia a 67-36 lead heading into the final period. The Tigers would bring out the running clock soon after Robert Dace hit a 3-pointer to start the fourth quarter. The outcome was as expected, Columbia High head coach Horace Jefferson said. They were without some of their start ers. I think we did some things positively, however, and there are signs that point us in the right direc tion. Ill continue to stress playing competitive and basketball intelligence. The Double Ds (Darrell Jones and Dillan Hall) play the same position, but theyre part of that committee that we need to replace Morris Marshall. The two did well replac ing Marshall in their first attempt. Both players scored 16 points to help lead the Tigers. Simmons was the only other Tiger in double dig its with 12 points in the contest. Columbia (1-1) will take the next two days off before travelling to Suwannee High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. By TIM KIRBY FORT WHITE Playing its first game of the season, it only took Fort White Highs basketball team one half to get up to speed. The Indians beat visiting P.K. Yonge School, 72-69, to welcome the Blue Wave to District 2-4A. It was the fourth game of the season for P.K. Yonge (2-2, 2-1). The Blue Wave scored the first five points of the game, then Jalen Wyche answered with five points of his own. Melton Sanders added two baskets and Wyche hit the second of his five 3-pointers in the game. P.K. clawed back and scored the final six points of the quarter to take an 18-17 lead at the first buzzer. Jarvis Roberts scored eight points in the second quarter, as P.K. pushed its lead to 30-24. Fort White coach Isiah Phillips steadied things with a time out and his team scored the final six points for a 30-30 halftime score. Quan Porter put back a rebound and Christian Helsel hit two free throws and a bucket. The Indians opened the third quar ter on a 10-4 run and maintained the six-point margin until the end of the quarter. Wyche and Sanders led the way with eight and six points, respec tively, and Paul Perry scored four, as Fort White led 50-44. Porter offset an opening 3-pointer by Tamarick Vanover in the fourth quarter. After a Wave basket by Fred Carmen, Perry, Sanders and Chris Cottrell scored for Fort White to push the lead to 10 points at 59-49. Carmen, who scored 12 points in the quarter, and Stephen Brown, who scored 10, kept the pressure on the Indians, but balanced scoring carried the day. Cottrell and Wyche each scored six, with five from Sanders, Porters trey and a basket by Perry in the quarter. With Fort White clinging to a onepoint lead, Wyche sealed the deal with two free throws. Wyche finished with a game-high 27 points. Sanders scored 18 points and Cottrell scored 10. Helsel and Perry each scored six points and Porter scored five. It was our first game and you could tell it, Phillips said. We were slow getting up to game speed, but I was proud of their effort. We have got to play smart and know the situa tions at the right time. Brown led P.K. with 19 points. Carmen scored 16 points and Roberts also hit double figures with 13. P.K. Yonge won the junior varsity game, 51-44. Fort White plays Suwannee High at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 3 in Live Oak.


This week we have had two holes-in-one, a suc-cessful tournament for our LGA ladies and big crowds for our scrambles. Everyone brought their “A” game. LGA put on their Christmas in November three-person scramble tournament. The winning team of Vonceil Kahlich, Chet Carte, and David Ross shot a 54. The biggest winner was David Ross when he shot a hole-in-one on No. 15. Other closest to the pin winners were Nicki Newmans and Chet Carter. The tournament was a huge success and every-one had a blast. The LGA ladies did a great job put-ting it together. Wednesday Blitz winner was Larry Boone with a +10. Jim Munns was second with a +5, while C.J. Proveaux and Gerald Smithy tied for third with a +4. Skin winners were Proveaux, Ralph Minster, Jack Tuggle and Chet Carter walking away with three. Chet Carter took three closest to the pins on Nos. 3, 11 and 17. Carter stood on the No. 17 tee box watching his ball go towards the green. He figured the ball would come close to the pin. To his amazement when he turned around the ball was gone. It turned out to be a big surprise when it was a hole-in-one. Proveaux was closest on No. 5 and Tuggle on No. 15. Friday Dogfight winner was Cowboy Shead with a +11. In a tie for second were Randy Heavrin and Ronnie Ash with +4. Skin winners were Tony Kent with two and Shead with one. Shead also took closest to the pin on Nos. 3 and 5. Bob Jaeger was closest to the pin on No. 11, with Joe Herring on No. 15 and Heavrin on No. 17. After a four-way tie in the Sunday Scramble the team of Brooke Russell, Kelli Frances and Jacob Bryan took first place. Taking the pot was the team of Flip Russell, Al Green and Lee Soon-Boong. A new pot starts this week, and it does not take long for it to get up there with the big crowds that have been coming out. The Sunday Scramble starts at 3 p.m. Monday’s Top of the Hill winner was Ronnie Ash with a -2. Don’t wait last minute for that Christmas gift. We are taking orders for our Golfer Delight Gift Baskets and now have a line of Nike shoes (men and women), caps and shirts (men and women). Call the pro shop at 752-3339. The A flight of Wednesday’s blitz didn’t generate much scoring or a clear winner. Jordan Hale, Steve Patterson and Mike Jacobs tied at the top with +3. The B flight produced the good scores with Bob Wheary in front at +10, fol-lowed by Pete Skantos with +9 and Bob Randall at +7. The day’s big payoff came in the skins game where Jerry Smith pock-eted a triple digit payout for the lone winner. Both pot holes carried over. The Sunday blitz scorecards were full of good scores. Tom Wade rolled in four back nine birdies to lead the pack with +13, two points better than Bob Wheary. Steve Patterson only managed third place with a fine round of +10, two better than Timmy Rogers in fourth place. Closest to the pin winners were Dave Mehl on No. 5, Bruce Ford on Nos. 7 and 15, and Wade on No. 17. Wade boosted his take with two skins. Steve Thomas, Charlie Timmons, Patterson and Wheary had a skin apiece. Bob Randall and Bruce Ford began a two-man war in A flight of Saturday’s blitz by killing each others birdies on No. 5 and kept it going to a first place tie at +7. Steve Patterson fell a point shy of making it a three-way battle. Eli Witt (+11) scored one for the lefties in the B flight. John Brewer and David Rhodes settled for a second-place tie with +8. Pete Skantos, Steve Thomas, Eddy Brown, Jordan Hale and Randall split the skins pot. The ladies showed their skill with the flat stick in an LGA “low putts” format. Dottie Rogers had the best day on the greens with only 30 rolls. Natalie Bryant (31) and Gloria Rowley (32) gave the lead-er plenty of competition. The winners made a clean sweep on the day by each scoring a chip-in. The Good Old Boys were hung up on two and fours in their scoring. They got things started in match one where the foursome of Jerry West, Bill Wheeler, Dave Cannon and Jim McGriff posted a 4-2 win over the team of Emerson Darst, Steve Peters, Tony Branch and Bobby Simmons. Match two kept things going in a three-way match when the team of Ed Snow, Joe Persons, Howard Whitaker and Paul Davis finished with four points to overcome the two points scored by the team of Don Christensen, Stan Woolbert, Mike Spencer and Bill Rogers. The third team of Eli Witt, Carl Wilson, Nick Whitehurst and Dan Stephens also scored (no surprise) two points Snow carded a round of 41-38-79 in an uncontested claim for medalist honors.

The two-time major winner is in the field at Leopard Creek Golf Club near Kruger National Park in northern South Africa for only his second tourna-ment since an operation in July to repair a shattered tendon in his right elbow. The American got off to a promising start at last month’s BMW Masters in his return to golf, before fading over the weekend to finish 5 over and in a tie for 48th. “I’m really fresh and I want to play,” Daly said Monday. “I don’t want to waste the end of this year. I’d like to get something going for the end of this year so I can get on track for next year.” Daly returns to South Africa for the first time since the early 1990s, when he won a couple of tour-naments to kick-start his career.

The Tigers fell 0-2 against Lincoln High on Monday in a game that was scoreless in the first half. “Both of their goals came in the final 20 minutes, but we had our chances on goal,” Tyler said. “We had more chances than we’ve had earlier this year. We’re starting to gel together as a unit and working hard in the midfield.” Tyler said the Tigers will also pick up a couple of players from football over the break, which could help in the latter parts of the season. Columbia fell 4-1 against Gaineville High after falling behind 3-0 in the first half. The Tigers would have scored two goals, but an off-side penalty kept a second score off the board. Kaleb Rossignol scored the Tigers’ lone goal in the second half with an assist from Darren Brock. “I’m proud of the play, as the kids never gave up,” Tyler said. “We were down 3-0 and we had a goal called back offside, which of course I didn’t think was offside. They fought back though and that’s a good thing. They’re getting bet-ter.” The Tigers take a break for the holiday before returning to the field at Gainesville at 7 p.m. on Dec. 10. Tyler said the break is due to a tournament at Wolfson High being can-celled, but will help the Tigers as they try to turn around a 1-5 start to begin the season. “It’s going to give us a lot of practice days,” Tyler said. “It’s a chance to get better.”Fort White soccerFort White High’s girls soccer team played visiting Lafayette High even in the second half before falling 3-1. Mallory Sealey scored the goal for the Lady Indians off a cross from Kasey Blanchard. Fort White’s boys lost 8-0 to the Hornets. The Lady Indians are 1-11-1 and 1-8-1 in District 5-2A. The boys are 0-10 with eight of the losses in dis-trict play. Fort White travels to Keystone Heights High on Monday. Games are at 5 p.m. (girls) and 7 p.m. PAUL BUCHANAN /Lake City ReporterFormer Columbia High and current Florida State football player Timmy Jernigan prepares for a play earlier thi s year. Freeman closing in on 1,000 yards for No. 2 FSUBy KAREEM COPELANDAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — Devonta Freeman is on the verge of rushing for 1,000 yards, a feat only five other Florida State players have accomplished since the football program began in 1947. The second-ranked Seminoles have leaned on the play of redshirt fresh-man quarterback Jameis Winston, but he’s benefit-ed from the balance afford-ed by a run game featuring Freeman, James Wilder Jr. and Karlos Williams. Opponents can’t consistently drop eight defenders in coverage or risk being gashed on the ground by the national championship contenders. Whether Winston will continue to lead the bal-anced attack is unclear. Winston is one of the central figures in an ongo-ing sexual assault inves-tigation. State Attorney Willie Meggs has said it is unlikely that a final deci-sion will be made before Thanksgiving on whether to charge the 19-year-old quarterback. But the case hasn’t affected the Seminoles’ performance on the field. Florida State (11-0) is undefeated thanks in part to its depth in the back-field, and Freeman has established himself as the primary rusher. The junior from Miami is 192 yards shy of 1,000 this season and his 131 car-ries are seven fewer than Wilder Jr. and Williams combined. Florida State has only had seven 1,000-yard rushing seasons in school history. Warrick Dunn was the last to reach the milestone in 1996, and he did it three times. Freeman gets a chance Saturday against strug-gling Florida (4-7). “If it happens it happens and if it don’t happen, it don’t happen, but I’d love to get it,” Freeman said. “If it don’t happen, I won’t be upset.” Freeman reaching 1,000 yards certainly won’t be a concern for coach Jimbo Fisher. He’s consistently shrugged off the value of individual statistics and refused to chase those sort of accolades in 2013. Winston could have better numbers for his Heisman Trophy campaign, but he hasn’t taken a fourth-quar-ter snap in three games. Freeman has 131 rushes and only 21 combined in the last three games. “If it’s in the context of us winning and being suc-cessful, I think it’s a great accomplishment,” Fisher said. “Still, 1,000 yards is 1,000 yards. That means a lot. That’s a plateau that’s been set in this sport. “If he gets it, I’m happy for him. That means we were able to run the ball, which I’m all for.” Freeman has proven just as effective running inside as outside.


DEAR ABBY: I was married to a man who ruled my every move. After years of torture and abuse, I finally became frightened enough to leave. Since then I have met a wonderful, caring, loving man who I wouldn’t trade for the world. He treats me with kindness, respect and love. He makes me laugh and smile and appreciate life. I am allowed to be myself and function how I will. I am happier than I have ever been. My question is, sometimes I miss my emotion-ally and physically abusive ex. I have no desire to BE with him, but after all those years, it’s hard to adjust some days. Is something wrong with me? I would never leave my current relationship for my ex. I feel like I have found my soul mate. But these lingering thoughts trouble me. Am I normal? What do I do? I don’t have a girlfriend to confide in. — FOUND MY SOUL MATE DEAR FOUND: I’m touched that you would confide in me. Yes, you are normal. Time has a way of dulling emotional pain, and with time we tend to gloss over unpleasantness. Your ex may not have been bru-tal and controlling all the time, and you are remem-bering the happier times. I don’t think that what you are missing has much to do with HIM. What you may be missing is the adrenaline rush you got from the drama. DEAR ABBY: I had an inappropriate relation-ship with a senior officer at the firm where I work. It ended a year ago. I was married at the time – I am now divorced -and he is married. Occasionally during the past year, he has made advances, but I rejected them. However, today his advances were persistent and almost demanding. For the first time, I felt a little threatened. I don’t want to cause trouble for him, his job and certainly not his fam-ily. But what do I do? I’d like to think he has gotten the message, but what if it continues? I like the guy; I’m just not interested any-more. — DON’T WANT TROUBLE DEAR DON’T WANT TROUBLE: It appears “Romeo” hasn’t quite gotten the message, so it’s time to make EXPLICIT your wishes in this mat-ter. If he continues to persist, then you will have to report it to human resources. DEAR ABBY: I have a great husband who has only one quirk. He often forgets to zip his fly. At home, who cares? But it happens in public too often and creates an uncom-fortable scene when my friends are around. Should I be hard on him, or just sympathize and keep my mouth shut? And what should I do when it’s clear that he’s the only one who doesn’t know? — JUST ZIP IT DEAR JUST ZIP IT: Has your husband always forgotten to zip his fly, or is his forgetfulness something recent? If it is recent, and you have noticed other laps-es in what should be auto-matic behavior, then it is time he had a neurological evaluation by a physician. Because this happens with some frequency, work out a code with him to remind him his fly is open -or take him aside and quietly point out that he needs to make an adjust-ment. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): You may have trouble keeping things together. Too much going on and too many different interests will lead to mis-takes. Impulsiveness and restlessness will be the enemy, and concentrating on what really needs to be taken care of will be your salvation. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Start a diet, join a fitness club or do some-thing else that will boost your energy and your con-fidence. Romance should be scheduled for late in the day, and an intimate con-versation will result in a decision that will improve your lifestyle. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): You’ll have to use your creative mind to zigzag your way through the trials and tribulations you face. Don’t engage in something you know little about. Emotional distress due to money matters and partnerships can be expected. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Handle personal situations with care. Get involved in activities you enjoy and you will learn valuable information that will help you improve a relationship you trea-sure. Money matters will improve if you get involved in a joint venture. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Help your community. The people you meet will be interesting and the difference you make will put you in the spotlight. Someone from your past will come to mind. Get in touch and find out what you have in common. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Make plans and follow through. If you have an idea, don’t put it aside. Consider starting a business or developing a hobby. A professional move will lead to good for-tune. Strategize and forge ahead. Leave room for romance. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t fret if you have promised too much. Ask for help and it will allow you to fulfill your promises and build a solid reputa-tion. Home improvements will turn out well and be cost-efficient if you do the work yourself. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Secrecy is what makes you so intriguing. Your ability to capture attention using unique and interesting thoughts, ideas and plans will attract the interest of someone who wants to partner with you. A joint venture can turn out to be quite lucrative. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Proceed with caution. Not every-one will agree with you or want to do things your way. Emotional distress and anger are prevalent and must be kept under control if you wish to main-tain your status quo. Stick close to home. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will be uncertain regarding personal issues. Step back from a situation that is questionable and watch to see what everyone else does. The knowledge you pick up from afar will give you insight into how to handle a delicate situation. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone will spread false informa-tion about you or what you have to offer. Make last-minute alterations to counter any meddling that someone is doing on your behalf. The element of sur-prise will keep you in the game. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Put your money on the table and your insight and exper-tise into practice. There is money to be made and deals to be signed. Explore new possibilities and expand on what you have done in the past. The sky is the limit. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
