Local & Nation, 6A


Vol. 13 1, No. 267 50 cents

Commissioners approve jail changes

Jail project can now
move forward to
site evaluation phase.
County officials believe changes
to the original plans for a new
Columbia County jail will adequate-
ly meet the needs of sheriff's office
and the local inmate population.
The Columbia County Board of

Commissioners unanimously
approved the changes to the pro-
posed facility's blueprint following
a presentation
Thursday night by
Bill Rutherford of _
Rutherford, '- .'
Clemons and
Associates. '-
Clemons and
Associates was the Gootee
company originally tasked with
doing a feasibility study for a new

county jail eight years ago and
Rutherford recommended the
changes during a 20-minute
presentation at the meeting.
Rutherford explained how the
changes would allow for three pods
and have enough space left to add
two additional pods. In addition, he
said the site on east U.S. 90 next to
the Columbia County Sheriff's
office is being surveyed and going
through topographical studies in
an attempt to find the most suitable
location for the jail on site, with

consideration to the wetlands in
the area.
However, commission chairman
Ron Williams .
noted that the
board is still con-
cerned with
staffing issues at
the jail and the
number of arrests
due to violation of
p r o b ati o n R. Williams
"There's no use in building the

jail if we can't afford to operate it,"
Williams said.
Rutherford and Columbia
County Sheriff Bill Gootee told
commissioners that changing the
design of the building's pods from
an octagonal to a rectangular
design and other changes would
not increase the amount of staff
needed to operate the facility.
'This is a very good design and
they did a great job in creating

Jurors recommend
death for mechanic
, SARASOTA- Joseph
Smith should be executed for
kidnapping, raping and
murdering Carlie Brucia, the
11-year-old girl whose
abduction was captured by a
surveillance camera and
broadcast around the world, a
jury recommended Thursday.
Jurors deliberated five
hours before arriving at their
recommendation, voting
10-2 for the death penalty.
Circuit Judge Andrew Owens
ultimately will issue the
sentence, as early as next
month. Under the law, he
must give great weight to the
jury's choice before imposing
a sentence of death or life in
prison without parole.
Smith, 39, showed no
reaction as the
recommendation was read.
Carlie's mother, Susan
Schorpen. let out deep sobs
and hugged friends after the
verdict was read. Patricia
Davis, Smith's mother, left the
courtroom crying.
Inm overwhelmed. Yes, it's
what I wanted," Schorpen'
said. "He may be condemned,.
but he's still breathing, and

Smith never testified during
the three-week trial, but
offered Thursday to read the
jury a letter admitting his
crimes. bOwens rejected that
when Smith's attorneys would
not let prosecutors
cross-examine him, but said
he could read it at the later
hearing when Owens will
impose his sentence. .
Defense attorneys left the
courthouse without
commenting. Jury foreman
Francis Kruzel said deciding
on a sentence was not an
"easy task."

They are accused of feeding
their daughter, Makeisha
Dantus, a mixture of water,
sugar and vodka in an attempt
to quiet her on Feb. 13, 2004.
The infant's blood alcohol
level was 0.47 percent,
according to the Broward
County Medical Examiner's
office. The legal limit for
drivers in Florida is
0.08 percent.
Derival and Dantus were
charged on Oct. 28, a delay
police attributed to their lack
of cooperation, but by then
they had disappeared.
They initially told the police
that, for roughly a month,
they had given their daughter
a bottle filled with the alcohol
and water mixture to help her
sleep. Small amounts of
alcohol have historically been
used to quiet crying babies,
but authorities, called the

Former Broward County

ingest that much alcohol -
would be the equivalent of a

Pay raise

should be


from the Florida School
Boards Association said all
school board members in
the state needed a pay
raise. So, naturally, the Columbia
School Board voted a pay raise for each
of its members.
They now earn $27,033 annually. It
was a raise of $1,188.
Two years ago, the board members
received a $579 salary increase. Last
year's hike was $387.
We have a good school board, but
let's be realistic in the fact that these
elected positions are a part-time job and
it's one that is not as demanding as
some constitutional offices.
It's wrong for the state to place these
matters of pay raises for any county
office holder under its control. Florida
is notorious for this, dictating from on
high in Tallahassee what should be
handled at the local level.
It's wrong.
Taxpayers are forced to pay the
increase through the school district's
general fund.
Part of the beauty of wanting to serve
on a local school board is simply this:
Wanting to serve. Just because the state
recommends a pay raise doesn't make it
necessary to accept it and shrug it off
as something that has to be done.
It's the wrong mentality toward
There's nothing wrong with elected
officials being compensated for their
service within reason. But that doesn't
include an automatic yearly pay raise.
To vote the increase is one example
- from the state down to the local level
- of what's wrong with government.

White-collar criminals

better off horsewhipped

Will Hoover, a
adviser who
cheated a number of his
clients out of their life savings,
was recently sentenced to
100 years in prison on charges
of theft, racketeering and
securities fraud.
There is a better answer to
his crimes than a life of rotting
behind bars.
Horsewhip him and put him
to work paying back the
$13 million he owes his
Yes, I know. We don't whip
people in this society. But if
you had a doctor present to
monitor it, that one episode of
severe pain - along with
years of restricted freedom
while making restitution -
would be far less an assault on
this man's mind and spirit and
far less a cost to the
government than the
humiliation, danger, boredom
and multiple deprivations of
keeping him locked up day'
after day, year after year.
'I am not crusading to bring
back even limited corporal
punishment, though some are
making that case and have
interesting arguments at their
service. I am, rather, saying
that it is a sham to pretend to
any particularly high state of
civilization when we imprison
non-violent convicts unlikely
of repeating their, offenses
instead of utilizing other
punishments that might have
equal deterrent value, be
more benign and better serve
our communities.
Hoover's story, I will grant
you, is not so likely to elicit
our sympathy as.famous tales
of punishments grossly-
disproportionate to the crime.
He is hardly like that youth
who failed to remove his hat
during a religious parade in
France in 1776 and was
executed for blasphemy, and
whose fate led Voltaire to.


President Bush

It was an unbelievable
,sight. It was hard to believe.
Could this be our president
still standing after being-
beheaded? The most powerful
person in the world, our
president beheaded? The
cartoon picture covered about

picture the beheading depicts

president and turned the axe

outraged eloquence. Hoover
hurt more than two-dozen
people, some of whom may
now be haunted by poverty for
the rest of their days because
of him.
But his sentence is far in
excess of the penalties meted
out to people whose crimes
were more detestable. As his
lawyer is quoted as writing in
an appeal, his prison sentence
is five times longer than the
average for murder and
10 times longer than the
average for rape. Other
white-collar criminals whose
vileness is in the billions /
instead of millions have.
received sentences a quarter
of his. And there is no
question in my mind that
Hoover's sentence is in
violation of the Eighth
Amendment's prohibition of
cruel and unusual
punishment. A chief purpose
of this constitutional right is to
;prevent courts from treating'
some Criminal with vastly
greater harshness than others
whose acts were morally
My guess - and that's all it
is - is that the Denver
district court judge who
sentenced Hoover, Sheila
Rappaport, was trying to make
a statement that upper-middle-
class, white-collar criminals
should get as swift a kick in
the teeth as do the underclass
criminals who mostly populate
our prison system. If so, that's
lousy thinking, in my view.
Long-term prison sentences
, mostly make sense as a means
of keeping violent and repeat
offenders off the streets

The Democrats were
looking on and gave thanks.
Beheadings are a trademark
of radical Muslims, so does
that mean the Muslims have
won the war on terror? Or
does the cartoon mean
Democrats have defeated the
president? Does the cartoon
tell the Muslims our president
is a joke?
While America is giving
thanks, Democrats are
thankful the president is
dead? Does anybody think

A hardened criminal, I
recently read, will commit
12 serious crimes a year. Put
1,000 in prison for a year, and
the public may be spared
12,000 acts of violence. It's
true that mrfany of these
criminals come from
underprivileged backgrounds,
but that fact should not stop
society from protecting itself.
Long prison sentences can
also, discourage crime,'
obviously, and can afford
retribution without which
society might seem to be
shrugging its shoulders at
execrable conduct, perhaps
even causing victims to resort
to their own revenge.
But there is a high price for
such sentences: the cost to
government of housing and
feeding the criminals, the
recidivism that prisons
cultivate, the terrible waste of
human lives, the agony of
incarceration, the possibilities
of being slain, beaten or raped
by other convicts.
Suppose a criminal is
unlikely to do physical harm
to others or strike again in any
way. Suppose different forms
of adequate punishment can
be found to scare off others
from breaking the law and
cause the criminal to answer
for what has been done.
Wouldn't it be better to use
Let's rule out
horsewhipping for Hoover, but
let's agree he should be put in
prison for no more than a year
and then be released for
decades of doing community
service and using his talents
to recompense his victims.
And let's do some hard
imagining about means of
dealing with the least-
threatening criminals that are
more productive than prison.

just a small bite that hopefully is worth the
lives it took to get there.

A definition

for victory?

do in Iraq? What does the
"victory" President Bush is
constantly extolling really
mean? Does it mean just
crushing violent dissent and bringing
Western-style democracy to a nation and
region where dictatorial rule, often theocratic,
has been the norm for 2,000 years?
Does it mean stabilizing the political and
military situation just enough to permit the
withdrawal of U.S. troops, crossing one's
fingers that the warring factions of the same
basic religion
can live in
harmony a
without a new

civil war
Does it mean
staying around Dan Thomasson
long enough to
crush the last
vestiges of
terrorist resistance? That might take decades.
It is difficult to dignify these thugs as
insurgents, implying they are legitimately
interested in expelling an evil force.
Insurgents so motivated don't callously and
randomly kill their own women and children.
Why, if they are true insurgents, do they go
on killing and maiming when the easiest way
of ridding themselves of the hated Yankee
intruders would be to let things calm down?
Removing the explosive belts from those they
convince to become martyrs with the promise
they will be heroes arid live forever in
paradise would be more productive, wouldn't
Well, not when the daily toll of death and
destruction has begun to have the desired
effect its architects always believed it would.
More and more Americans have begun to
question the entire affair. Debate in Congress
has become lo'id and nasty,arid a president t:'
who just over a year ago won an impressive,
re-election bid finds himself besieged, his
popularity waning and his political party
facing eroding influence going into next year's
midterm elections. The president now must
spend much of his time encouraging the
home folks to stay the course.
The "victory" Bush seems to be seeking is
outside the dictionary definition of achieving
"final and complete supremacy or superiority
in a battle or war." That sort of victory has
been elusive since World War II. It is doubtful
that it is achievable now given the culture of
Iraq and indeed the entire region. Besides,
Americans - who have become more and
more live-and-let-live even ag the globe has
shrunk - simply won't support the amount
of time and manpower needed to accomplish
that. So unless the president and his advisers
have lost any sense of reality, his "victory"
doesn't mean exactly that.
What it seems to mean now is stabilization,
with a decent interval - shades of Vietnam
- for troops to be withdrawn and the Iraqi
police and military forces and civilian
government to become strong enough to
handle the situation for a while. What
happens after that is anyone's guess, but the
likelihood of another Saddam Hussein,
whether a Muslim cleric or a new military
figure, emerging from the rubble isn't all that
The president is now seeking an increase
of more than $3 billion to quicken the pace of
readiness of Iraqi security forces, with the
hope of withdrawing some of the invasion
troops next year. That, of course, would be
aimed at calming the home front in advance
of the November congressional elections. If
there is a bright spot in the current polls for
Bush and Republicans, it is that the
Democrats don't fare much better in public
confidence to put things right and that a large
number of voters believe the increasingly
rancorous debate is harmful to the welfare of
U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Of course, it may be. Certainly, as has been
noted, the tenor of the controversy probably
is encouraging to the al Qaida crazies who
are responsible for most of the horror. But
that is the American way and changing it has
about the same chance of success as turning
Iraq into a bulwark of democracy. The
president and his advisers need to
understand that and to encourage
constructive civil discourse while moving as
quickly as possible to his version of "victory."
Those who oppose him need not do it so
vociferously even if devouring our o.wn has
become a way of life in the capital.
Why we are in Iraq is immaterial at this
juncture. Cutting and running prematurely is


Many of the nation's retailers

post mixed sales for November

By ANNE D'INNOCENZIO " - , .g stores open at least a year
AP Business Writer I , S, L '. known as same-store sales.

NEW YORK - The holiday
shopping outlook was hazy
Thursday after the nation's
retailers reported a mixed
start to the season that
showed consumers were will-
ing to spend only when they
found a bargain.
One thing was certain,
however - retailers are likely
to resort to heavy markdowns
in hopes of meeting their
sales targets. Many of last
month's winners were stores
that heavily discounted dur-
ing the Thanksgiving week-
end, including Wal-Mart
Stores Inc. and J.C. Penney
Co. Inc.
November had some
surprises - upscale retailers
were among the disappoint-
ments, including Nordstrom
Inc., usually a top performer.
On the upside, Limited
Brands Inc. had solid gains
after struggling for months
with its fashions. Limited's
sales were fed by a combina-
tion of aggressive price cut-
ting and a makeover at its
Express division.

Rosemary Modeste, of Brooklyn shops at the New York & Co.
store on Lexington Avenue in New York on Thursday.

"You had some very good
performances by only a hand-
ful of stores, but you also had
a fair amount of weakness.
Most of the business was
driven by promotions," said
Michael P Niemira, chief
economist at the International
Council of Shopping Centers.
"More of the season's sales
now ride on December, which
is dicey because of the weath-

er and promotional activity,"
which could hurt stores'
profits, he said.
The UBS-International
Council of Shopping Centers'
November sales tally of
65 retailers rose 3.5 percent
last month; the results
matched Niemira's forecast,
but beat a meager 1.8 percent
increase a year ago. The sales
tally is based on sales at

Niemira added, 'The
economic numbers look bet-
ter, but on the other hand you
worry about consumers'
ability to spend."
The Commerce
Department reported sepa-
rately Thursday that personal
spending edged up in
October, while incomes rose
0.4 percent. In another report,
the Labor Department said
the number of hurricane-
related job losses totaled just
9,600 last week, a substantial
improvement from 21,000 the
previous week.
Retail analysts were opti-
mistic going into the holiday
season because gasoline
prices have fallen from their
September highs. The latest
batch of upbeat economic
data and a rebound in con-
sumer confidence in
November were encouraging
signs that shoppers might be
more generous.
But big challenges remain.
While gas prices have fallen,
they're still above last year's
levels and home heating costs
are also expected to be high.

Delta reports big loss six

weeks after bankruptcy

AP Business Writer

ATLANTA - Delta Air
Lines Inc., the nation's third-
largest carrier, said it lost a
whopping $1.14 billion in the
first six weeks of its
bankruptcy case.
The Atlanta-based airline
revealed the loss that amount-
ed to $6.04 a share for the Sept.
15 to Oct. 31 period in a filing
Wednesday night in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in New
York. Delta filed for
bankruptcy on Sept 14.
Delta had already reported a
third-quarter net loss of
$1.13 billion for the three
months ending Sept. 30. It's-
not clear from Wednesday's
filing how much of the new
loss occurred during October
and how much came during
the last half of September. A
spokeswoman said Thursday
the company would not be able
to break it down.
Excluding reorganization
items, Delta said its loss for the
first six weeks of its bankrupt-
cy case was $472 million.
The airline also said in its
filing that it spent $2.61 billion
in the first six weeks of its
bankruptcy case, much of it on
fuel, salaries and interest
expense. It listed $17 million
for "professional fees" associat-
ed withh its bankruptcy case
during the period and included
that amount in the reorganiza-

tion items it said contributed to
its loss in the period.
But in a footnote later in the
filing, Delta said no payments
for fees to 12 "retained profes-
sionals" will be made until after
Dec. 5. A spokesman could not
immediately say whether the
two references were separate
categories of fees or one in the
same. The company reported
revenue of $1.95 billion for the
six-week period.
Delta's net loss for the first
six weeks of its bankruptcy
case was more than triple that
of the $346 million that
Northwest Airlines Corp. said
it lost during the same period.
Northwest, based in Eagan,
Minn., also filed for
bankruptcy in New York on
Sept 14.

Last section of New Orleans opens

to residents: 'It's a jolt, chaplain says

band and wife who waited
three months to see what
Hurricane Katrina did to their
neighborhood finally returned
Thursday to find their blue,
wood-frame house sitting in
the front yard, three feet off its
Louis Phillips and Donna
Williams were among those
allowed access to the Lower
Ninth Ward for the first time
since Katrina struck Aug. 29. It
was the last section the city to
reopen, because'of the maze of
destruction wrought by the
storm and floods after the
London Avenue Canal levee
Residents were allowed in
for the day to collect what
belongings they could before
leaving. Until now, people had
been able to view the
destruction only on bus tours.
A long line of cars waited to
pass a checkpoint at a school
where the Red Cross was
handing out water and snacks
and providing mental health
counselors to those who want-
ed them. Police officers and

Brian Richards, Jr., Shaw Temp Building Inspector in City of New
Orleans, writes a note for a damaged house on Thursday in New
Orleans. It is the first time the Lower Ward has opened for
residents of New Orleans to check their houses since Hurricane
Katrina struck on Aug. 29.

firefighters warned those
entering that there was still
dangerous debris and
buildings on the verge of
Williams first tried to enter a
house next door that the cou-
ple had been renovating, bitt
she stopped at the front door.
-"There's a lot of debris and
dirt and nails on the floor," she
said, fighting back tears.

Phillips tore the door off the
other residence, entered and
began tossing out clothes still
in plastic dry cleaning bags,
along with bits of furniture
destroyed by floodwaters.
"Don't throw them out
here," Williams said to her hus-
band. "I don't want to look at
them." .
Frank Wingate, who had
returned to inspect his moth-

er's property, found her refrig-
erator balanced on the edge of
a rooftop where it had floated
during the flood. It was held
partially in place by some of
the few power lines that had
not snapped during the storm.
"I don't think you're ever
prepared," said Greg Pigford, a
Salvation Army chaplain who
accompanied some of the
returning residents. "You can
see it on TV, but when you see
it for the first time up close,
what was your home, it's a jolt."
The Lower Ninth Ward, one
of the city's poorest sections, is
part of the 40 percent of the
city still without power, three
months after Katrina hit.
Thousands of residences were
destroyed in the area, in the
eastern New Orleans section
and in the upper-income
Lakeview section.
At one intersection, .the
twisted remains of a yellow
wood-frame house sat on
Antonia Jackson's front lawn.
"It's from somewhere down
the road," Jackson said.
She surveyed the destruc-
tion in her yard and sighed.
"Everything's gone," she said.
"Everything's gone."

University president comes under fire for

complaining about students' 'mush' heads

Associated Press

Insulting alumni and donors
probably isn't the best way to
show that you are trying to
improve your university's
national profile, as the presi-
dent of the University of
Richmond has found.
During a "state of the uni-
versity" speech in October at
the private liberal arts col-
lege, William E. Cooper dis-
cussed the school's efforts to
become more academically
competitive by attracting'
more talented students.
"The entering quality of our
student body needs to be
much higher if we are going
to transform bright minds
into great achievers instead of
transforming mush into
mush, and I mean it," he said.
He later apologized for his
remarks and said they were

Some alumni remain sup-
portive of Cooper's vision, but
he has come under fire from
many others, who are calling
for him to step down and are
threatening to withhold con-
tributions until he is gone. At
a recent home basketball'
game, some Richmond fans
wore buttons proclaiming,
"Mushheads Unite."
"It's time to send Cooper to
the 'mush' pit and get our
beloved University back on a
positive track," Keith Stojka, a
1996 graduate, wrote' on an
'online petition calling for new
leadership. "By the way, not a
red cent from me until
Cooper is sent packing."
The number of signatures
approached 2,000 Thursday, a
day before he was to meet
with the executive committee
of the university's Board of
Trustees. The full board will
then take up his case,

university spokesman Randy
Fitzgerald said..
Cooper denied a request
for an interview.
University spokesman Dan
Kalamanson said that no
major donors have suspended
their pledges over the contro-
versy, but "clearly the situa-
tion is something the Board of
Trustees, the university does
take seriously."
He said that students, facul-
ty members and alumni
should "look at the big pic-
ture, the positive things that
Dr. Cooper has achieved, and
weigh them against, the
remarks, the changes here
that some people may not be
supportive of."
Before coming to
Richmond, Cooper was
Georgetown University's
executive vice president and
dean of faculty at Tulane

Children celebrate anniversary of Rosa Parks arrest

Hundreds of children marched
Thursday from the site where
Rosa Parks made ,history
50 years ago, commemorating
the anniversary of the day she
refused to give up her bus seat
to a white man.
"Thank you, Rosa Parks.
Thank you, Rosa Parks," the
children chanted as they

marched to the Capitol from
the site about eight blocks
away where Parks was
arrested on Dec. 1, 1955.
Elijah Taylor, 12? said he
joined the children's parade "to
give tribute to all those people
in Montgomery who, walked
during the bus boycott" as well
as Parks.
"I did it because Rosa Parks
stuck up for what was right,"
said Megan Hughes, 11.
The children, both black and

white, joined arms and sang
'We Shall Overcome" at the
steps of the Capitol;
Earlier Thursday,
Montgomery residents and
civil rights figures conducted a
prayer breakfast to remember
All buses in Montgomery
paid tribute to Parks by leaving
a seat empty with a display
commemorating her act. Other
bus systems around the coun-
try had similar displays. Parks

died Oct. 24 at age 92 in
Detroit, where she and her
husband had moved in 1957.
The Montgomery
Improvement Association,
which hosted the prayer break-
fast, was the group that organ-
ized and launched the boycott
of city buses four days after
Parks' arrest. The yearlong
boycott, led by the Rev. Martin
Luther King Jr., became a key
moment in the civil rights

Suspected serial killer

sentenced to death

Associated Press
MOBILE, Ala. - A suspect-
ed serial killer was sentenced
to death Thursday for the rape
and murder of an Alabama
woman, whose slaying led
authorities to link him to more
than 10 other killings.
Circuit Judge Charles
Graddick called Jeremy Bryan
Jones "a danger to civilized
society" as he sentenced him
to die by injection.
Jones told the court, "God
will have the final say," before
Graddick sentenced him. An
appeal is automatic.
A jury in October recom-
mended the death sentence for
the 2004 killing of Lisa Marie
Nichols, 44, in Turnerville.
"This is what we wanted,"
said ' Nichols"' diighter,
Jennifer Murphy. "We're going
to be there. We're going to
make sure it's followed out."
During his trial, Jones

blamed Nichols' neighbor for
the death, but he said
in statements to sheriff's
investigators that he killed the
victim and burned her body
while he was high on
Alabama Attorney General
Troy King said Jones "targeted
his prey like any predator" and
never showed "even an ounce
of remorse."
Defense attorney Greg
Hughes sought a life sentence
without parole, saying Jones
suffered "extreme mental and
emotional problems,"
including long-term drug
Graddick said Jones' volun-
tary drug use was "not an
excuse for criminal behavior,
-'Authirities� say Jones, 32, of'
Miami, Okla., has given detec-
tives details of other killings,
including where they occurred
and the victims' names.

Man arrested in slaying

of Illinois college student

.Associated Press

27-year-old man was charged
with murder Thursday in the
slaying of an Illinois college
student whose body was found
in a burned-out Mississippi
chicken coop.
Maurice Wallace was also
charged with auto theft' and
concealing a homicide in the
death of 21-year-old Olamide
Adeyooye, an Illinois State
University senior who was last
seen Oct. 13 at a video store
near ' her , off-campus
apartment in Normal.
State's Attorney Bill Yoder
refused to answer questions
about the case ahead of a
court hearing Friday.
But according to court
papers, the woman was killed
in her apartment on the day
she was last seen. Wallace
tried to clean blood from the
floor of her apartment, then
put her body in her car and left
the area, the court papers said.

Adeyooye's badly burned
body was found Oct. 21 in
Mississippi when the chicken
coop's owner was cleaning up
from a fire four days earlier.
She was later identified
through dental records.
Wallace, who lived on the
same block as Adeyooye, has
been in custody since Oct. 20,
when he was arrested in
Atlanta on unrelated charges.
Adeyooye's car was found
abandoned in Atlanta on
Oct. 30.
The public defender's
office, which is representing
Wallace, had no immediate
Wallace and Adeyooye
knew each other and he had
been to her apartment, accord-
ing to friends of Adeyooye,
who was scheduled to gradu-
ate this month from the
20,000-student university.
Authorities said two autop-
sies failed to pinpoint the
cause of death, but they will
seek another autopsy and
further forensic tests.

R ambo, Rocky.
Rocky, Rambo.
Now that the
introductions are
taken care of, we
can dive right into this
week's topic:
Sylvester Stallone and
doing another sequel to the
films that made him a star.
Last I looked, the last two
"Rocky" movies were
borderline abuse. When
"Rocky IV" debuted, the
country was at the height of
the Cold War with Russia,
so we can forgive the
producers for having the
Russian crowd turn on
Rocky's behemoth
opponent when they saw
that Rock-o wasn't going to
quit. ...
'Maybe that's where
George W. Bush got his
strategy for the current
Gulf War: If we stick it out a
little bit longer, we may
suffer mentally later on, but
for right now, we're going
to win this thing if it's the
last thing we do. If we stay
in Iraq long enough, we're
eventually going to win,
their hearts by -waving our ,
freedom-loving flags in
their faces.
The sixth - and
hopefully last - "Rocky"
movie is currently in
pre-production, which
means there is still time for
the movie company,
producers and Sly himself
to back out.
The original "Rocky" is a
classic. It won Stallone a
Best Picture Oscar. The
second "Rocky" was even
better, because the little
guy got his just desserts.
"Rocky III," or the one with
Mr. T, was just greed. We've
already discussed the
fourth, and "Rocky V," I'm
sorry to say, was one of the
worst movies of all time.
, And "Rocky Balboa" has
an aging Rocky coming out
of retirement to fight ... You
guessed it, Clubber Lang!
Mr. T is also getting a
Oh, the pain is too great
to continue on talking about
Rocky and his washed-up
boxing career that should
have stopped after he beat
Apollo Creed for the title in
And Rambo shouldn't be
trying to use all his strength
to fight any more bad guys.
He's killed enough, so
Stallone should hang up the
machine gun, cut the mullet
and retire the character.
"Rambo IV" has a plot
outline like something just
waiting to be spoofed.
"Vietnam vet John Rambo is
forced to emerge from his
reclusive lifestyle and take
justice into his own hands
after a girl goes missing,"
according to
Stallone has never been a
top-shelf actor. Heck, let's
just admit it, he stinks. He's
famous for no other reason
than his body looked like it
was chiseled from stone
and he wrote "Rocky."
Now, what would be
entertaining is if Rocky
met Rambo in a duel to the
death. It's fists vs. guns.
Who's going to win? It's

anyone's guess, but

Leesburg tops Columbia girls

Tim Kirby


takes over

JV hoops

Junior varsity bas-
ketball games are
mostly the time for
jostling around at
the concession
stand to get the
popcorn and coke before
the main event. Columbia
High fans will want to
adjust their attendance
time when the Tigers open
at home today against
Baker County High.
Former CHS player
Varion Coppock is now the
head coach of the junior
varsity and his team will
begin the action at 6 p.m.
Coppock was hired to take
over when Steve Smithy
stepped down.
Coppock was a varsity
point guard for the Tigers
for three years, beginning
with the 1996-97 season. He
attended college and played
ball at North Carolina
Wesleyan. Coppock was
invited to walk on - the
school doesn't give scholar-
ships - but he still ha'd to '
make the'teani . . !;
"Ithink'it'is going to
work out great," CHS head
coach Trey Hosford said.
"It's tough losing a coach
like Smithy (34-9 in two
years). 1t is all about get-
ting them ready for the var-
sity and he did a great job.
With Varion, we haven't
missed a beat."
Coppock began working
with a summer team while
in college and got the
coaching bug.
"Curt Burgess introduced
me to coaching," Coppock
said. "He asked me to help
out in the summer and that
is when I really got interest-
ed in coaching."
A check of Columbia's
varsity roster reveals sever-
al players that are in the
grades normally associated
with junior varsity teams,
but Coppock is adjusting.
"We are rebuilding on
the JV," Coppock said. "We
are learning the fundamnien-
tals of basketball, so every-
body can be on the same
Coppock's years at CHS
are a continuation of
Hosford's, who was a sen-
ior in 1995-96. They have a
similar perspective.
"Varion played at CHS
and that means a little
more," Hosford said. "It is
special to coach at your
alma mater. He brings a lot
of knowledge and energy
and will do whatever he
can to make the program,
"It is good to be back in
basketball, especially in
Lake City," Coppock said.
"My college coach told us
to go back and help out in
your community. It is good
to be coaching at CHS."
*As with the summer
league, Coppock is helping
players learn the game.
"My role is teaching kids
how to play on the next
level, both to play varsity
basketball and maybe
someday on the college
level," Coppock-said. "I see
myself as a basketball
teacher, just like a school
teacher preparing someone
for the ACT or college."

Fort White High
weightlifting looks
to improve in 2005.
White High girls weightlifting
team has just two returners
from last year's team that
missed regionals, but the
Lady Indians boast several
athletes from different sports
who assistant coach Kenny
Burt feel will be a real asset to
the team.
'They're young girls, we've
got some seventh and eighth
graders arid I think they can
be competitive," Burt said.
,, Burt tool'oyer weightlifting ,
,practice a the.end u he ^week ,
for head coach Terry Fillyaw,
who is an assistant for the
Trinity Catholic High football
team that will play Pahokee
High in the state champi-
onship game on Saturday.
Junior Amanda Means is
one of the returning lifters for
Fort White, and she will com-
pete in the Unlimited weight
"I work out as much as I can
and try to help the girls before
the meet," Means said. "I just
tell them to have fun and work
as much as you can."
Means' max is 120 right
now, but she is working to
improve on that. Means said
she eats "a lot of bread" and
drinks a lot of water to main-
tain her strength before a
meet. And sometimes she'll
eat right up until a meet

Tasheona Harris
leads CHS with 22
points in loss.
The district foes contin-
ue to be formidable for
Columbia High girls bas-
ketball. Leesburg High
beat the Lady Tigers 74-55
in Lake City on Thursday.

Leesburg improved to
6-1 overall and 4-1 in
District 4-5A games.
Columbia fell to 3-3, 0-3.
"I liked the way the girls
worked hard," CHS head
coach C.C. Wilson said. "It
was a great effort tonight."
Columbia's Tasheona
Harris had the job of bring-
ing the ball upcourt and took
the brunt of the banging.
She went to the free throw
line 16 times, making 14, and

The other returned is
Christa Strickland, who also
pitches for the Lady Indians'
softball team. Strickland will
lift in the 129-pound weight
"She's doing a good job,"
Burt, said. "She's going to
have a good total. She's
already ahead of where she

was last year."
Senior Lavelle Edwards is
another lifter Burt will count
on this season. Edwards is in
her first year on the team.
Like. Strickland, she plays
another sport - in this case
two, volleyball and track. She
said , she decided to give
weightlifting a try because "I
figure I'm kind of strong, so
why not try it."
Right now Edwards is
benching 80 pounds, and she
is aiming to bench 100 by the
end of the season. She will lift
in the 169-pound weight class.

CHS girls win first game

Columbia boys rip
Lake Weir High by
same score as girls.
From staff reports

The Columbia High girls
soccer team won its first game
of the season on Thursday, 8-0
against Lake Weir High.
The victory came without
Coach Beth Adkins, who was
out of town attending to a per-
sonal matter. Instead, assis-
tant coach Bill Giebeig was at
the helm for the win.
"The girls definitely played
together good as a team," he
said. "We really spread it
Lindsay. Beach had a hat
trick, and Christen Jones,
Amy Rowand, Kelly- Hunter
and Lyndsey Goodson each
scored a goal. The other score
was an own-goal by Lake Weir.
Shelley Giebeig had 15 shots
on goal, and Kayla Brill had
one assist for CHS..
The Lady Tigers (1-6-1)

CHS boys soccer
The Columbia High boys

soccer team pounded Lake
Weir High 8-0 on Thursday.
"Outstanding play by the
people in the back - Jordan
Akins, Brad Rigdon and Brad
Witt," CHS coach Trevor
Tyler said. Tyler also praised
the work of J. Ben Parker, Ben
Rigdon and Junior Torres.
Nic Ny.ssen scored three
goals and had one assist, and
his first goal set the tempo
when he took a pass from
Charles Cofield and beat his
defender and the keeper just,
19 seconds into the game.
Cofield assisted on two
other goals, and Chris Mullen
scored twice and Brad
Rigdon, Witt and David
Wester each scored once.
"Our finishing was much
improved over our last six,
seven games," Tyler said.
Rigdon also had an assist
for the Tigers (4-3-2, 2-3-1),
who host Ocala Forest High
at home at 4 p.m. on

Fort White soccer
The Fort White High boys
soccer team lost 1-0 to Ocala-
St. Johns High Thursday on a
goal scored in the last 30 sec-
ond of the game. .

"We played hard," Coach
Bob Hochmuth said. 'We just
sort of got sucked into a
rugby game."
'In addition to the rough
play, the Indians had three
goals called back - one
because of offsides and two
because of challenges to the
Ocala-St. Jnhns goalkeeper..
The first of those disal-
lowed goals came just 15 sec-
onds into the game.
Goalie Stephen Lynch
made five saves, and
Hochmuth praised the play of
Mario Barrera, Tim Robinson,
Travis Collins, Jason Shiver
and Will Roper.
. Roper started in place of
Danny Bowie, who missed the
game due to illness.
Fort White also lost mark-
ing back Steven Lopez to a
shin contusion, but Hochmuth
said he should be fine.
The Indians (2-3-2) host
Taylor County High at 7 p.m.
on Monday. Hochmuth
expects injured players
Brandon Milliken and Connor
Hayden to be back for that
Milliken and Hayden have
not played in the regular sea-
son due to ankle and knee
injuries, respectively.

"She's a really good ath-
lete," Burt said. "Really good
technique on her clean-and-
jerk. Her bench is the best. So
she might give some people a
run too."
Another athlete who joined
the team this season is Alexi
Hodson, who catches for the
softball team and played soc-
cer last year. Hodson would
be playing soccer this year,
but a knee injury forced her to
miss the season and she opted
for weightlifting instead.
FW continued on 4B

led all players in scoring
with 22 points. Harris, who
fouled out with 5:48 left in
the game, had four steals
and three rebounds.
"My neck got hurt a little
bit," Harris said. "It is a
learning experience. It
gives us a chance to run up
and down the court and see
how they play."
Elizabeth Coker mixed it
up under the boards and
finished with 10 points, five

rebounds and two steals.
Clar'donna Jernigan had
six points, seven rebounds
and three blocked shots.
Yasmen Harrington got
her first varsity action and
scored seven points. Lan-
easha Harris scored four
points, while Benitra Givens,
Shannon Alford and Kaylyn
Varnum each scored two.

Vick's play critical

against Seminoles

Hokies plan to run
the ball more in
ACC title game.
Associated Press
Marcus Vick draws praise
for his poise from his coach-
es and teammates nearly all

the time. He'll
never have a better
chance to show
he's worthy of the
The quarterback
for fifth-ranked Vir-
ginia Tech figures

to be severely tested by
Florida State in the ACC
championship game Saturday
night. A heavy pass rush is
anticipated, and Vick has strict
orders to get rid of the ball.
The last time Virginia
Tech played a team with the
speed of the Seminoles was
Miami, four weeks ago. Vick
was miserable, throwing two
interceptions and fumbling
the ball away four times in a
27-7 loss.

This time, a running attack
that has piled up 610 yards in
its last two games could be
the centerpiece of the
Virginia Tech offense.: Vick
is taking it in stride.
"We've just got to try to
match it up, put a hat on a hat
and see if we can block these
guys," he said. "If we can't,
then, hey, we've got to work
some wonders."
Vick worked plen-
ty of those as the
Hokies started 8-0,
but hasn't been asked
to do as much since
the loss. Instead, the
Hokies have relied on
power back Cedric
Humes and flashy Branden
Ore to carry the ball - and
the load - on offense.
"What we've done the past
few games is we said,
'Marcus, manage the game
and let your running backs
make a few plays and keep
the other team off the field,'"
tight end Jeff King said of the
change. "It's not that we're
taking the ball out of Marcus'
hands. It's that we're doing
what we need to do to win."

Mixed results in December

tkirby@lakecityreporter. corn

Columbia High has had
mixed results on the first
playing date in December.
1966 - CHS 29,
Lakeview 19. Columbia
capped off a 10-1 season with
a win over the Winter Garden
school in the Sunshine
Christmas Festival Bowl in
Ocala. Bryan Johnson was 11-
of-13 passing for 167 yards
and scored on a five-yard run.,
Danny Greene scored two
touchdowns. Tommy Pepper
kicked three PATs and the
Tigers scored a safety on a
punt. Jack Meeks had an
Donnie Williams (MVP
banquet award), Steve
Chamberlin (Best Tackler),
Bobby Harrison (Best
Blocker) and Larry Jordan
(Most Improved) were all-
Florida Star Conference,
along with Craig Busby and
Greene. Chamberlin,
Williams, Jordan and Busby
were all-region. Williams
signed with Florida and
Chamberlin with Georgia.
Clemson head coach Frank
Howard spoke at the awards
banquet, where Bob
Dobelstein accepted the"
Quarterback Club president
gavel from Sidney Blay.
Unsung Hero David

Shackelford received the
other award.
"We feel that this was the
finest team we've had since
being in Lake City," coach
Paul Quinn said.
1938 - CHS 26, Jasper
12. Coach Hobe Hooser
defeated a team coached by
his former pupil, Eddie Joe
Long, and the Tigers finished
8-3-1. O'Neil Hill scored a pair
of touchdowns and Jack Davis
and Dan Waters each scored
After eight years at the
CHS helm, Hooser had a
record of 62-14-6, included
undefeated seasons in 1931-
32-34 (two ties). The '34 team
was "conceded to be the
greatest produced" by. the
Lake City Reporter writer.
The dramatic statements
continued, upon noting that
Columbia was losing 21 sen-
iors: "Coach Hooser will proba-
bly not have football next year."
1949 - Bay 7, CHS 0
(Saturday). Columbia was
the first choice, ahead of
Mainland, Fletcher, Lakeland
and even Phillips High in
Birmingham, Ala., for the
Second Annual Jaycee Bowl
at Tommy Oliver Field in
Panama City. Bay (6-2-1)
turned down an invitation to
the Shrine game in New
Orleans to play the Tigers.
Bay won the game on a

60-yard touchdown pass in
the third quarter. Tommy
Ives had a 42-yard kickoff
return for CHS. Eddie Joe
Hewett had an interception.
Jack Cole recovered a fum-
bled punt at the Bay 10, but
an interception ended
Columbia's threat.
The Lion's Club hosted the
football banquet for the 7-3-1
Tigers and Florida head
coach Dave Fuller was guest
speaker. Lake City Gators
Sam Oosterhoudt and
Freddie Rozelle came from
Gainesville with Fuller.
Ives was named to the
Little All-State first team, an
all-star squad chosen by the
Miami Herald. He was also
All-Northeast Conference and
a unanimous selection as
team captain. Jesse Thomas
was All-NEC and a second-
team Little All-State honoree.
1988 - Pine Forest 47,
CHS 6. The No. 1-ranked
and undefeated Eagles rum-
bled through Lake City for a
sectional game on the way to
the state championship.
Coach Carl Madison claimed
there was a little trash talk in
the paper and unleashed
Rodney Blunt for 221 yards
Columbia's score came on
a 73-yard pass from Scott
Bennett to Daniel Fulton. The
Tigers ended the season 9-3.

When fan turns on soaps,

she turns out the world

DEAR ABBY: My wife,
"Myra," and I have been mar-
ried more than 50 years, and
all she does is watch soap
operas every afternoon. I have'
invited her to lunch and other
-outings only to be told, "OK,
but I gotta be home by noon to
watch my shows."
If the mailman or UPS
arrives with a package
between noon and 4 and I'm
not there, Myra ignores the
bell. We have three adult chil-
dren. If any of them call dur-
ing that time, she'll refuse to
talk to them even' if it's an
emergency. Once, it was our
older daughter calling to say
our son had been taken to the
hospital with a major heart
attack. Myra's sister died of a
stroke one afternoon two
years ago. My wife didn't
learn about it until the
following morning.
On weekends, Myra is
always in a bad mood because
she says, "My soaps aren't on
today." (The housecleaning
doesn't get done then, either,
unless I do it.)
What's wrong with people
like her? It's not the house-
work, Abby. I just wish my
wife would realize there's
more to life than soap operas.
Can you think of a way to con-
vince her to get a life, so to
speak? , - BORED

Abigail Van

but you have to realize that
you are dealing with someone
who is severely addicted. Your
wife gets a "rush" from watch-
ing her "soaps," and as her
behavior on weekends shows,
she goes into withdrawal if
she doesn't get her "fix."
There may be a solution to
this problem. Cable television
companies now offer cable
boxes that allow viewers to
record their favorite television
shows on a hard drive for later
viewing. I recommend you
look into it. If it's not available
in your area, visit an electron-
ics. store and see what
recording devices it has in
However, as to convincing
your spouse "to get a life" and
start living it with you, it may
already be too late for that. So
make sure you have a life of
your own by inviting others to
join you 'for lunch and other
outings. That might be what it
takes to sober her up.
DEAR ABBY: My sister
"Peggy's" daughter was mar-
ried recently. She is 54, and it

was her third marriage. Her
invitation stated, "No gifts,
please." My son and nephew
gave the couple a card.
-.Peggy promptly called
them both and informed
them that when a wedding
invitation states, "No gifts,
please," it means that the cou-
ple doesn't need household
items, that they should be
given money instead.
I am aghast that Peggy
would take it upon herself to
reprimand my son and
nephew and solicit money
from them. What do you
think of this? Incidentally, my
nephew was married two
years ago. My niece was invit-
ed and never sent a gift to
Where do I begin? For open-
ers, no mention of gifts
shofild have been on the invi-
tation - and that includes
"No gifts, please." Where
your sister got the crazy idea
that the phrase means "give
money instead" I will never
know. And for her to chastise
your son and nephew for not
giving her thrice-married
daughter money was off the
charts. Christmas is coming,
and I have the perfect gift
suggestion for her - a book
on etiquette.

FW: All-new team looks to compete

Continued From Page 1B

"My dad really wanted me to
do something to help me get
better at softball, and that's
why I joined," she said. After
taking a weightlifting class ear-
lier this year, Hodson said she
noticed a big difference on the
softball field.
"I've started hitting triples
and doubles playing softball
now," Hodson said, which
makes her want to stick with
the weights. Currently,
Hodson benches 130 pounds,
but she hopes to get to 145 or
150 pounds by the end of the
year. She is better on the
bench than in the clean-and-
jerk right now because, as she
said, "My knees aren't so
Hodson has been eating a
lot of salads and drinking plen-
ty of water to prepare for the
season, and at the same time
she has given up fattening

foods and soda.
' That's very tough because
I love a lot of that food," she
said. "I love chocolates and
Kali Hunter is yet another
multi-sport athlete who has
taken up weightlifting.
Hunter played volleyball in
the fall, is currently playing
soccer, and she will play soft-
ball in the spring. The junior
will lift in the 154-pound
weight class.
One of the newcomers Burt
thinks will give the team a lift
is seventh-grader Katie Coffey,
who will compete in the
183-pound weight class.
"She'll be one, that if she
sticks with it by the time she's
a junior or senior - she'll be
hard to beat statewide," Burt
Burt has been impressed by
the work ethic of Coffey and

all the girls thus far.
'They work hard, they stay
here as long as. I stay here with
them," he said.
'They don't just lift and run,
so I do like that."
Other lifters are: Brett Sealey
(101), Ashley Gonzalez and
Marie Sealey (110), Michelle-
Lyn Leverett (139), Jennifer
Crosby and Lisa Wenzel (154)
and Cheryl Stone (169).
The schedule starts with a
home meet against Columbia
High at 4 p.m. on Monday. The
girls then lift in a tri-meet at
Union County High against
the host school and Eastside
High on Dec. 12, then travel to
Newberry High for a meet on
Dec. 14.
Districts start after
Christmas Break, where the
Lady Indians hope to take a
big step forward into the new

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON H.K. Edgerton, a Southern man from Asheville, waved his Confederate flag in the middle of the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex, belting Dixie as the audi ence rose to their feet around him. He was just one of approximately 80 people attending a Florida Department of Environmental Protection Division of Recreation and Parks meeting Monday night on possible locations for the proposed Union monument at the Olustee Battlefield. Three sites were recommended by the DEP inside the three-acre, state-owned Olustee Park. Its not just about Florida not in a time when our monuments are being attacked, Edgerton said. Its sacrilegious for them to suggest we build a Union monument anywhere in the South. If you want to memorialize your Union soldiers, go north of the Mason Dixon. Nearly 150 years ago, Union and Confederate troops clashed at the Battle of Olustee in the only major Civil War conflict on Florida soil. Now, Union and Confederate sides from organizations all over the state have once again been called to arms over a black granite monument proposed by the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War to be constructed at Olustee. There should be some represen tation of Union soldiers. Its a state park, said Lloyd Monroe, a member of the SUVCW. Theres twice as much Union blood spilt on that battlefield than Confederate blood... Im a little disappointed there was so much reac tion to this. The war has been over for 150 years. Were not hear to relitigate it. Were just here to honor the people who sacrificed their lives. Meeting on location of possible Union monument at Olustee battlefield shows depth of rage over issue.

Edgerton, from Asheville, N.C., waves a Confederate flag outside the Columbia County School Board Monday afternoon in protest of proposed Union monument to be placed in Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park. 2 stabbed in brawl at local bar By STEVEN RICHMOND Authorities were on the lookout for a man accused of punching a woman, stabbing two men and cut ting another man during a brawl in Long Branch Saloon Saturday morning, according to Lake City police. According to investigator Craig Strickland, the fight began when an unknown black man had an argument with Mindy C. Tomlinson, 34, and began striking her in the face. Apparently it was over some money about a game of pool, Strickland. He was the one that owed the money. From what we know, it was only a couple dollars, noth ing huge. Words were then exchanged and he ended up punching her. Video evidence from interior security cameras show individual patrons attempt ing to break up the fight one by one, beginning with Will S. Smith, 45, accord ing to a press release. When Smith attempted to break up the fight, the suspect slammed him into a nearby cigarette machine and stabbed him Suspect still on the loose as of press time Monday. Stabbing suspect Report: Man hits officer with car By STEVEN RICHMOND A Georgia man was arrested after he purposely drove his vehicle into an officer redirecting traffic on US90 West Wednesday, the Lake City Police Department reports. Sean David Rose, of Warner Robins, Ga., was driving east bound with his three children toward the intersection of US90 West and Brookside Court where an LCPD officer wear ing a reflective POLICE vest was redirecting traffic around an accident around 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, according to the arrest report. When Rose approached the intersection in his dark blue PT Cruiser, he activated his turning signal, indicating he wished to turn north on Brookside where the road was blocked by the accident, the report said. However, Rose did not follow the officers directions, pointed to the McDonalds on the corner and yelled, my wife and kids are right there, according to the report. Rose then began making the turn and came to a stop with the vehicles bumper nudging the officers legs, the report said. The officer slapped the cars hood and ordered Rose to stop before the two individuals made direct eye contact through the PT Cruisers windshield, the offi cer said. Rose then began accelerat ing, causing the officer to roll onto the hood of the vehicle, the report said. The officer braced himself with his left hand, drew his fire arm with the right and aimed it at Rose, making further demands for him to stop. Rose came to a stop, was pulled from the drivers seat and COLLEGE FOOTBALL FSU is Number One in nation, 1B.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Convicted killer appeals sentence JACKSONVILLE — A Jacksonville man who killed a Navy wife after answering her personal ad on Craigslist may end up changing the way death-penalty cases are defended in Florida. Area newspapers report that lawyers for David Kelsey Sparre are asking the Florida Supreme Court to throw out his death sentence for the murder of 21-year-old Tiara Pool. Her body was found with an estimated 89 slashes inside her apartment in July 2010. The justices are scheduled to hear the case Tuesday. Sparre arranged to meet Pool while her husband was deployed at sea. Sparre later told police and the mother of his child that he killed Pool for the “rush.” “After she quit fighting, I tilted her head and sliced her throat,” Sparre wrote in the letter to the mother of his daughter. Sparre wrote, “I want to tell you the truth about why I killed that girl,” then explained that he planned the killing for a week, looking for a victim in Jacksonville. In court filings Sparre’s public defender argues that Circuit Judge Elizabeth Senterfitt was wrong to sentence Sparre to death without allowing evidence to be presented on his mental-health and substance-abuse issues.Gator in the Bay art heads to Basel FORT LAUDERDALE — One of the largest exhibits being displayed during Miami’s popular Art Basel this year will be a floating piece of art. Gator in the Bay, crafted with floating art tiles, will head down the New River in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday and make its way to the Miami Yacht Club. The message behind the art focuses on bringing awareness to the shrinking Florida Everglades. Gator in the Bay is a 104-foot by 8-foot float. Artist Lloyd Goradesky will take photos of the gator float via helicopter and seaplane.Tulane player to receive award ORLANDO — A Tulane University football player who sustained a spinal cord injury last year will be presented with the Disney Spirit Award. Tulane senior Devon Walker will be presented with the award during the College Football Awards show at Walt Disney World Resort Dec. 12. Walker collided with a teammate in the second game of the season last year while attempting to make a tackle and was paralyzed from the neck down. Walker began his career as a walk-on in 2009 before earning a scholarship and becoming a team captain and starting safety in 2012.Legislator sued for dog bite TALLAHASSEE — A Florida legislator has been sued over his pet dog bit-ing someone in the face at a restaurant located near the state Capitol. Christopher Kent filed a lawsuit last week in Leon County against Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. Kent’s lawsuit alleges that Gaetz’s dog bit him last May. The lawsuit contends the dog bite left Kent in pain, disfigured and with injuries that ultimately forced him to withdraw from law school. He said part of the reason he quit the University of Michigan is that the treat-ment has forced him to take antibiotics that cause stomach problems. The lawsuit asks for payment of medical bills and damages connected to the bite, but it does not list an amount. Gaetz on Monday acknowledged that his dog, Scarlet, did bite some-one. Gaetz said he does not know the dog’s breed because he rescued the 55-to-60-pound dog from a shelter about six years ago. But he said he was unaware of the lawsuit until reached by a report-er. He said that he thought Kent’s attorney was trying to discuss the issue with his insurance company.Officials: Speed factor in Walker’s deathLOS ANGELES I nvestigators sought to deter-mine the cause of a fiery crash that killed “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker while the 40-year-old actor’s fans erected a makeshift memorial Sunday near where the Porsche he was riding in smashed into a light pole and tree. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said speed was a factor in Saturday’s one-car crash, though it will take time to determine how fast the car was going. Because Walker is so closely associated with the underground culture of street racing portrayed in the popular “Fast & Furious” film franchise, the fatal accident had an eerie quality — a tragic end for a Hollywood hero of speed. The crash also killed Walker’s friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas, according to Walker’s publi-cist, Ame Van Iden. She said Walker was a passenger in the car when the two drove away in a 2005 red Porsche Carrera GT from a fund-raiser in the community of Valencia, about 30 miles northwest of down-town Los Angeles. Sheriff’s deputies found the car engulfed in flames when they arrived at the site of the crash, near the fundraiser at Rodas’ sport car dealership. On Sunday, fans of Walker, 40, gathered to leave flowers, candles and memorabilia from the action movies. Walker is survived by his 15-yearold daughter.‘Singin’ in the Rain’ suit goes up for auction DALLAS — A memorabilia collector is selling the gray wool suit Gene Kelly wore as he joyously danced in a downpour in the Hollywood musical “Singin’ in the Rain.” The suit is expected to sell for more than $20,000 when Heritage Auctions offers it up Friday in Dallas. Memorabilia collector Gerry Sola has had the suit for more than four decades after buying it for $10 at a 1970 sale of MGM props and wardrobe items following the sale of the studio to financier Kirk Kerkorian. “I think it’s one of these pieces that people are really excited to see go up on the block,” said Margaret Barrett, director of the entertain-ment and music memorabilia depart-ment at Heritage Auctions. “Even if you’ve never seen this movie, you probably know the scene. You’ve seen Gene Kelly dancing around, singing in the rain, swinging on that lamp post.” Jennifer Lopez to receive parenting honor LOS ANGELES — Jennifer Lopez is being honored by the March of Dimes. Lopez, the 44-year-old mother of 5-year-old twins, Maximilian and Emme, will receive the Grace Kelly Award at the eighth annual March of Dimes luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Friday. She’s being recognized as a celebrity parent role model supporting women giv-ing birth to healthy babies after full-term pregnancies. The 75-year-old nonprofit organization aims to prevent birth defects, premature births and infant mortal-ity.

Originally the Union mon ument was set to be placed near the three existing mon uments, two of which are dedicated to Confederate generals and one of which the Sons of the Confederate Veterans said commemo rates both troops. After critics of the monu ment protested its poten tial placement near the Confederate Square, the Divisions of Parks and Recreation suggested three potential locations Monday night, separate from the existing monuments, but still within the state park. Prior to Mondays meet ing, people were given the chance to vote on location for the new structure. The recommendation to place the monument south of the Confederate Square was based on those public votes. We are in no way opposed to a Union monument, said Jim Davis, a representative from the Sons of Confederate Veterans. We are opposed to a monument on the origi nal three acres. In fact, according to Jeff Grzelak, a structure dedicated to Union troops already exists on the Olustee Battlefield. Its situ ated in the cemetery, slight ly away from the three main monuments, and it lists all the Union regiments that fought at Olustee. We did not want to inter fere with the Confederate Square because, lets face it, they are the ones that bought the land and gave it to the state, he said. We did not want to offend the United Daughters of the Confederacy. However, at the same time, we want ed to honor the Northern troops, who through no fault of their own lost the battle. But they, nonethe less, were just as brave and their blood was just as red as the southerners. Grzelak and many critics of the monument suggested that the Union monument be placed on hold until the onsite museum is constructed, be built outside of the state parks boundaries or that SUVCW simply update the signage on the current mon ument. Others just wanted to see it placed as far away from the Confederate monu ment as possible. Larry Rosenblatt turned in a petition with 1,000 sig natures opposing the new addition, adding that theres a historically accurate mon ument already in existence. The white cross Union monument was placed very close to where the Union blood was shed, he said. Why does another Union monument need to be placed on the battlefield? Why on state land and not on fed eral land for a federal monu ment? ... Would the United States put up a fight of any kind if the Japanese tried to put a monument in Pearl Harbor or the Germans at the concentration camps? Phil Walters agreed, stating that he knew his ancestors wouldnt want to honor peo ple who marched through out the south raping, looting and murdering innocents. During the Civil War, he said, the South formed its own country and the north ern troops were an invading force even if it was the other half of America. Another critic, Gail Thomas, argued against the addition of another monument because the site hasnt really been touched since the original monu ments were erected in 1912 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. This is a dangerous precedent to set because it opens the doors for any organization to come in and petition for a monument, she said. The parks, which we love so much, will end up as monument graveyards. Representative Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City) was approached by the SUVCW several months back about their desire to place a Union monument at Olustee. She told them if it was true that there are no existing monu ments honoring Union troops, it would be fair to allow them to erect one. However, on Monday night, she said it seemed that people against the struc ture made more and bet ter points than the people who were against it. She even said it was brought to her attention that night that there was already a Union monument in place. We feel like we are still fighting the Civil War, said Sue Van Vonno of the Daughters of the Union Soldiers of the Civil War. They were all soldiers and they all need to be hon ored... We are in the United States, and thats what the United States means. A lot of people seem to have for gotten its meaning.

The council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance that would create a special magistrate position that would effec tively dissolve and replace the citys current code enforcement board. However, the council retained legal language that would not require the adoption of additional ordi nances should they wish to reinstate a code enforce ment board in the future. City Manager Wendell Johnson said after the meeting that a special magistrate would be more economical than the staff time required to keep a multi-person code enforcement board up and running. In other business, the city council: Awarded an annu al contract for fuel and delivered diesel to G. W. Hunter, Inc.; Approved a one-time annual bonus of $50 to part time city employees and full time employees with less than one year of employ ment and $100 to all other full time employees; Gave surplus city prop erty along NW Hammonds Loop to the Parkview Baptist Church; Confirmed Roger Little as the fifth mem ber to serve on the Board of Trustees of the General City Employees Retirement Plan.

Authorities arrested Christopher Michael Moody, 40, of 19174 SW State Road 47, on Nov. 25 after allegedly find ing child pornography he obtained through Kik, a social messaging app used on smartphones, accord ing to the arrest report. Deputies said Moody created a profile under the name Christy Moody so he could masquerade as a 17-year-old lesbian or bi-sexual girl, the report said. Law enforcement were able to locate the illicit por nography after receiving a tip from Moodys wife, who had previously con fronted Moody about the pornography around Nov. 8, the report said. However, she allegedly found the images again on Nov. 24, the report said. During a recorded inter view with law enforcement, Moody said he was bored and wanted something to do, according to the report. Moody was arrested and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $35,000 bond. He faces charges of having obscene pornographic communi cations with a minor and possessing child pornog raphy. Moody Man charged with sex offense By STEVEN RICHMOND FORT WHITEColumbia County sheriffs deputies arrested a Fort White man Sunday suspected of engaging in sexual activ ity with a minor between the ages of 12 and 16, CCSO reports. Authorities began investigating Jason Dale Turner, 39, of 358 SW James Turner Glen, after receiving copies of mes sages he posted on an online social site around Oct. 15, according to the arrest report. For undisclosed reasons, deputies were not able to speak with Turner until he agreed to meet them at their Fort White substation Dec. 1, where he was inter viewed by deputies and arrested without incident, the report said. No other information was available through the heavily redacted arrest report by press time. Turner was booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $100,000 bond. He faces a charge of engaging in sexual activity with a person between ages 12 and 16.

In 1960, the Lerner and Loewe musical ‘‘Camelot’’ opened on Broadway. In 1967, surgeons in Cape Town, South Africa led by Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed the first human heart transplant on Louis Washkansky, who lived 18 days with the new heart.

In 1992, the first telephone text message was sent by British engineer Neil Papworth, who transmitted the greeting ‘‘Merry Christmas’’ from his work computer in Newbury, Berkshire, to Vodafone executive Richard Jarvis’ mobile phone. Leave the rest of us out of Obamacare To the Editor:All Americans that are happy with their current insurance plans should be permitted to keep them. That seems simple enough to the millions of people that want to keep the insurance they have. The government is forcing Obamacare, which they have carefully exempted themselves from, down the throats of the people they are supposed to be protecting. Why should our gov-ernment treat us like we live under some kind of dictatorship? We were doing well before the federal gov-ernment decided to get involved in the insurance business. Welfare is needed to help the elderly and people who are handi-capped and cannot work or provide for themselves. It was never intend-ed to take care of illegal immigrants or lazy deadbeats that are able but refuse to work. Why doesn’t the government let the 85 percent of the public that wants to keep their plans do so? Make it a law. The government already takes care of the indigent, the needy and the deadbeats. If anyone else chooses Obamacare, let them have it. Just leave the rest of us alone. The time is long overdue for Americans to regain a feeling that our elected officials actually care about what is happening to our country; and should stop mak-ing laws that Congress and the Administration are exempted from! I feel very strongly about this, and I hope you do too. I plan to share copies of this letter with Senators Marco Rubio, Bill Nelson and the Honorable Ted Yoho. I ask you to take a few minutes and share your feelings with them. Stand up and be counted; let your voices be heard. We want all the freedoms and liberties provided by the Constitution and intended by our forefathers restored to the American people. Now! Jacquelyn B. HunterLake City The dishonesty of Obamacare A s we experience more of the unpleasant reali-ties of the Affordable Care Act, Americans are questioning, finally, the forthrightness and honesty of their president in his selling of this law. As millions of individual health insurance policies are cancelled, it is transparent that the president distorted the truth when he told Americans, “if you like your plan you can keep it.” But misrepresentation goes beyond how a particular feature of the law was sold.... In a recent appearance at a synagogue in Dallas, President Obama summed up the supposed motiva-tion in putting so much of the ener-gy of his new administration behind passing this health care law. The bottom line, according to the presi-dent, was about making sure “that everybody had affordable, quality health care.” Who, of any political stripe, would question the merits of this goal? The problem is that the president is being as honest in stating that this was the goal of this health care law as he was in saying “if you like your plan you can keep it.” The Supreme Court indicated this week that it would hear two cases of Christian-operated firms -Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Inc. -who claim their religious free-dom is violated by provisions of Obamacare forcing businesses to provide employees, free of charge, contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing pills. How exactly does forcing businesses to pick up 100 percent of the costs of abortion-inducing pills for women employees reconcile with the alleged goal that all Americans get affordable, quality health care? A White House blog about the cases written by Obama senior advi-sor Valerie Jarrett states, “Ensuring the full freedom of women as health care consumers to access preventa-tive health services is a vital com-ponent of the Affordable Care Act.” And nothing is more “essential,” Jarrett goes on, than decisions regarding “reproductive health.” In other words, to reconcile the words of Jarrett with those of her boss, the president, a “vital” and “essential” part of making sure that everybody gets “affordable, quality health care,” is giving women the “right” to do whatever they feel like regarding their sexual behavior, bearing zero personal responsibility for the costs associated with their behavior, and dumping those costs on someone else. I hope you are scratching your head. My experience with insurance plans is they lower premiums when customers demonstrate more responsible, cautious behavior – certainly not when they claim the right to act as they please and then have other people pick up the tab. If you go onto the now-infamous website, you can click on a section that says, “What are my preventive care benefits?” There appears a special section on “Preventive health services for women.” Why is there no special section “Preventive health services for men?” A 2010 newsletter from Harvard Medical School talks about the “gender gap” in health, saying that when it comes to health, “men are the weaker sex.” Life expectancy for women is five years longer than for men. Of the top 10 leading causes of death in the U.S., the incidence among men is markedly higher than among women in nine of the 10. You would think if the health care law was going to focus on gender, it would focus on men. The answer to all of this is that Obamacare was never primarily about getting the best, most afford-able health care to Americans. If it was, there would have been open discussion from the beginning about how best to achieve this. That open discussion never took place. This was and is about bringing the left-wing agenda of the Obama White House to America. The result is displacement of religious freedom with left-wing tyranny and the beginning of more expensive, lower-quality healthcare. T he Lake City Reporter’s 6th annual Community Food Drive got off to a great start Monday, with folks stopping by our office throughout the day to drop off non-perishable items for delivery to Florida Gateway Food Bank. But the need is great, and your help would come in handy. We’re at 180 E. Duval Street, across from the courthouse, and will be collect-ing Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., through Dec. 13. Or, if you’re a subscriber, just leave a bag of food in your paper tube or at the end of your driveway the night of Thursday, Dec. 12 for your carrier to pick up the next morning. The goal is to fill our 24-foot delivery truck with donated items. With your help we can do it.Thank you, on behalf of all those who aren’t in a position to ask. Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Star Q Star Parker is president of CURE, Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education ( To the Editor:What has happened to people out in the country? They don’t care about their neighbors. They will tell you they will help you with some-thing and they don’t fulfill it. They don’t even just drop by and see how you are doing. They just think about themselves. The Bible says in the end they will become lovers of themselves. I think this prophecy has been ful-filled. It really hurts when you think nobody cares about you if you’re old and in the way. Look at TV and you see all the beautiful ladies. They think they’re the most beautiful women in the world. I’m glad I have animals, horses and goats, cats, dogs. At least they come up to you and seem to be happy to see you. It may be because they want you to feed them, but not altogether. I think they are on their way to saying thanks for feeding me. Why can’t humans be like that? Terry WhiteLake CityThe world is growing increasingly selfish 4AOPINION

By TIM KIRBY LIVE OAK Suwannee Highs basketball team started its regular season with a nail-biter against Columbia High on Friday. The Tigers rallied to take a one-point win, 58-57. Suwannee led by four points at the end of the first quarter and by six points at the half. The Bulldogs led 42-38 at the end of the third quarter and pushed the lead back to six with a basket by Aaron McAllister. Dillan Hall hit a 3-pointer for Columbia, then Suwannees Jamarri Wheeler and Columbias Darrel Jones traded bas kets. Robert Dace tied the game at 46-all with the third of his four 3-pointers in the game. Jones gave the Tigers the lead, then Kevarrius Hayes snatched it back for Suwannee with two free throws and a basket. A 3-pointer by Jones put Columbia ahead and Dace pushed it to four points with another trey. Wheeler hit a pair of free throws. Tre Simmons hit one free throw for Columbia and McAllister cut the lead to one point with a basket. Jones missed the front end of a one-and-one, but got another chance in the double bonus. He hit the first shot and Andrew Moemeka muscled in for the rebound on the second miss and put it in for a four-point Columbia lead. The Tigers needed all of the points when Wheeler hit a desperation 3-point er at the buzzer. The Suwannee freshman led all scorers with 23 points. Columbias Jones scored 18 points with eight in the fourth quarter and five each in the first and third Associated Press Florida State and Ohio State are in position to play for the BCS national cham pionship, though Auburn and Missouri are close enough behind in the BCS standings to put pressure on the Buckeyes.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 38-year-old woman who has been dating a 41-year-old man for seven months. He’s wonderful and treats me magnificently. We have simi-lar values and interests and are very much in love. Sadly, although I have always want-ed children, he does not. At my age, I have dated enough men to know that I have found someone spe-cial. I realize my choice is either to stay in a relation-ship with a fabulous part-ner, knowing we won’t have children, or end it, hoping I’ll find someone just as wonderful who wants kids. Advice? — MATERNAL IN NEW YORK DEAR MATERNAL: I’ll try. Many women in their late 30s find that conceiv-ing a child is complicated, and it can also take longer than they thought. It has taken you 38 years to find this exceptional man, and it could take quite a bit of time to find another one who is so compatible. Look at it this way: If you married “Mr. Wonderful” and learned afterward that he couldn’t father a child, would you leave him? Insist on adopt-ing? Or would you count the many blessings you do have with him and stay? Many women are happily childless. However, if you’re not one of them, you should take your chances and move on – remembering that there are no guarantees. DEAR ABBY: I work on a busy street in San Francisco where smokers walk around puffing all day while ignoring those around them. Don’t you think they should be con-siderate enough to smoke at designated areas only and not while walking with their secondhand smoke billowing around other pedestrians? I have seen pregnant women and children inundated by the smoke as these puffers stroll by with no regard. We non-smokers would appreciate their courtesy for others because we don’t want to inhale what they’re smok-ing. Can you comment? — HATES THAT HABIT DEAR HATES THAT HABIT: I hate it, too, but unless there is an ordi-nance in your city that pro-hibits smoking on certain sidewalks, I think it’s unre-alistic to expect smokers who inhale not to exhale. DEAR READERS: Years ago, a young mother in Arlington, Va., wrote about a book she had received that promised to help parents prepare their children for school by expanding their vocabulary. The “secret”? Reading to them while they are small. Children learn words by hearing them spoken in context -the more they hear, the more they absorb. Like everything else, reading is something people will do more of if they enjoy it. When a par-ent reads to a child, the child associates reading with pleasure. “The Read-Aloud Handbook” by Jim Trelease became a huge best-seller when it was published. Penguin Books called it one of the 75 most important books it has published in its history. The book is now in its seventh – and LAST – edition and has been completely revised and updated. If you’re a parent who wants your child to succeed, a grandparent, or someone contemplating becoming a parent in the future, pick up a copy. To order the book, go to DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Do what suits you. Take a leap of faith and head in a direction that encourages you to learn about new people, places and skills. Step away from anyone putting pressure on you to do something that doesn’t feel right. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Interact with knowledgeable people with whom you share an interest, but don’t make a decision that might hold you hostage. Check out your options as well as how you can cut cor-ners to make a new project more feasible. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Don’t waste any time when it comes to helping others or living up to your promises. A per-sonal accomplishment will make you feel good about your future. Networking or reconnecting with an acquaintance will make you reflect and move on. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): You’ll pick up information easily. Look for signals that can guide you to a better position. A personal relationship will need an adjustment if you want to move forward without baggage. An infat-uation may lead you in the wrong direction. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make adjustments that will help improve future dealings. Attend a lecture or make minor self-improvements that will put you in a better position to negotiate what you want. Enhance your chance to achieve success. A change will do you good. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): There will be a fine line between saying what’s on your mind and letting your emotions spill. Concentrate on what you can change, not what you cannot. The people you feel most comfortable with are the ones to gravitate toward. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Share your thoughts and explore subjects and interests that can help you meet new people. You may want to make an impres-sion, but don’t spend or overdo it in order to do so. Sticking to a budget and being responsible will be noticed. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Offer ideas and share your plans. You can make personal domestic alterations that will improve your living conditions. Don’t be reluc-tant to do things differ-ently. It’s your uniqueness that will garner attention. Love is on the rise and will enhance your life. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Gravitate toward change and try something new. Don’t let anyone stand between you and your professional goals. Anger won’t pay off but outdoing someone who challenges you will. Make an impression and show how passionate you are about what you do. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stand your ground. Don’t feel you have to give in to someone who is making last-minute changes. Proceed down the path you chose without giving in to what anyone else is doing. You will come out on top if you are tenacious. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Listen carefully and go about your busi-ness. Don’t make trouble by arguing or trying to get others to do things your way. Pick and choose what works best for you and follow through with your plans. Don’t fold under pressure. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Keep personal business at a distance. You cannot win an emo-tional battle, but you can get ahead where invest-ments and professional jobs come into play. Focus on money, expanding your interests and upping your income and your reputa-tion. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Associated Press STORRS, Conn. Shabazz Napier hit a jump er from the free throw line as time expired to keep No. 12 Connecticut unde feated with a 65-64 victo ry over No. 15 Florida on Monday night. Napier, limping on a left ankle he hurt during a four-point play with 33 seconds left, escaped a trap around 30 feet from the basket and got off a wild shot that missed but was tipped blindly back by DeAndre Daniels. Napier grabbed the ball and let go a left-handed jumper that went through as the horn sounded and set off a deafening cheer from the sellout crowd of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion. Napier finished with 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting including making 5 of 8 from 3-point range. The Huskies (8-0) and Florida (6-2) battled down the stretch exchanging the lead six times in the final 6 minutes. Casey Prather had 19 points and seven rebounds for the Gators, while Patric Young had 17 points and seven rebounds. Scottie Wilbekin had 15 points but injured an ankle with 3:01 to play and never returned from the locker room. 8B LAKE CITY REPORTER BASKETBALL TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2013 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 8BSPORTSJUMP Lake City Reporter New Patient Exam and Necessary X-rays DO150, DO330 First-time patient Reg. $136 $ 29 SAVINGS OF $107 Expires December 31, 2013 ASPEN DENTAL GROUP On Friday, December 13th Carrier Food Pick Up Day To participate, simply leave a bag of non-perishable food at your Reporter paper tube or the end of your driveway Thursday night, Dec. 12.
