Miami Art Basel' exhibit invites

visitors to taste some works of art A

Call security and a psychiatrist.
But this week at Art Basel
Miami Beach, an international
art show, visitors to one exhib-
it are invited, to place flavored
strips representing various
paintings on their palates. Ift's
part of a collaboration between
an art magazine and a
fragrance and flavor company.
Visitors to Visionaire maga-
zine's "taste bar" are offered
postage-stamp-sized strips that
dissolve like film breath mints.
They were developed in con-
junction with artists, and the
artwork paired with each flavor
is displayed menu-like above
the bar.
"Its very Willy Wonka," said
John Steele of Visionaire, who
likened the exhibit to a famous
scene in Roald Dahl's "Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory"
where a character experiences
a three-course meal in a stick
of gum.

Gay UF employees get health insurance for partners

Associated Press
University of Florida's gay
and .lesbian employees will
receive health insurance ben-
efits for their domestic part-
ners under 'a measure
approved Friday' by the
school's Board of Trustees.
The vote was 12-1 making
UF the state's only .public
university to approve such a

policy, which also covers
partners of unmarried
straight couples. Married
employees have long been
able to insure their spouses.
UF President Bernie
Machen said he thought the
measure would be important
for both ; recruiting and
keeping faculty members.
'This is not just about the
people who need this benefit.
This is also about people who
consider the benefit a,

statement of the climate of
the campus where they are
going to work," Machen said.
Machen said two faculty
members left Florida
because it did riot have such
a policy.
Texas businessman Al'
Warrington, the only trustee
to vote against the proposal,
called it "immoral, unethical
and clearly non-scriptural.
It's an abomination."
Warrington, a huge donor

to the school, said plans to
use University of Florida
Foundation funds to pay for
the program, estimated to
cost between $500,000 to
$1 million a year, could cut
contributions to the school.
"As one donor, I would be
offended if my money went
to fund the program,"
Warrington said. The univer-
sity's school of business is
named after him.

'I'm dying,' she said,

but no one helped

Many years ago,
there was a
report from
New York
about a woman
named Kitty Genovese. I
pulled the record up and
remember the feelings it
churned in my heart. Maybe
now is a good time to recall it
and remember it again.
NEW YORK - Thirty-eight
respectable citizens, according
to a police court - looked on
but did nothing as a killer
stalked and stabbed a woman
in three separate attacks,
spread over more than half an
hour in the Kew Gardens
Section of Queens.
JwThe sound of the
householders' voices and the
sudden glow of their bedroom
lights interrupted the slayer
twice and frightened him off
He returned each time, sought
the woman out and stabbed her
No one telephoned the police
during the assaults. One
witness phoned after the
woman was dead.
Assistant chief inspector,
Frederick M. Lussen, in charge
of police detectives in Queens
by the events of two weeks ago
today. Lussen, a veteran of
25 years of homicide
investigations told New York
Times reporter; "as we have
reconstructed the crime, the
assailant had three chances to
kill the woman during a
thirty-five minute period. He
returned twice to complete the
job. If we had been called when
he first attacked, the woman
might not be dead now."
The victim was Catherine
(Kitty) Genovese, 28, a bar
manager, who was stabbed to
death as she returned home
from work at 3:20 a.m. She
lived on a quiet, middle class,
tree lined street.
Six days after the sidying,
police arrested Winston
Moseley, 29, and charged him
with homicide. They said he
admitted he killed Miss
Genovese because he had an
urge to kill. Two days ago, a
judge committed him to a

victim of wallet snatching in
Publix. I'm a trusting person.
It was not unusual for me to
leave my purse in a shopping
cart and wander a short
distance to pick up an item. My
recent experience taught me
not to do that any more. Publix
is a friendly store where lots of
socializing goes on. Who

spoke very little English

hospital for mental observation.
The Times, which
published a detailed account
of the case today, said in part:
Miss Genovese noticed a man
at the far end of the parking lot
where she left her car ... the
man grabbed her, she screamed
.. lights went on in a ten story
apartment house, windows
were opened and voices ......
punctured the early morning
darkness. Miss Genovese
screamed, "0 my God he
stabbed me! Please help me!
Please help me!" From one of
the windows in the apartment
house, a man called down, "Let
that girl alone." The assailant,
looked up at the man, shrugged
and walked down Austin Street
... Miss Genovese struggled to
her feet. The lights went out.
The killer returned to Miss
Genovese, now trying to make
her way to her apartment. The
assailant stabbed her again.
"'Tm dying ... I'm dying." Miss
Genovese shrieked.
Windows were opened again
and lights went on in many
apartments. The assailant got
into his car, parked nearby, and
drove away. Miss Genovese
staggered to her feet. The
assailant returned.
By this time, Miss Genovese
had crawled of an apartment
building and sought safety by
entering one of the doors. The
assailant, after trying two
doors, found her slumped on
the floor at the foot of the stairs.
He stabbed her a third time --
It was 3:30 a.m. by the time
the police received their first
call. It was from a male
neighbor of Miss Genovese.
Police were on the scene in two

her, but she had taken just
enough of my attention for
someone to reach into my
purse and take my wallet. It
was only when I was 'checking
out that I discovered the loss
and no credit card to pay for
my groceries. Not believing
that someone had actually
taken the wallet, I spent time
searching my car and the area.
It was only later that I realized
it had been a scam. Obviously
involved were two boys, one
very recognizable - tall, thin,
swarthy complexion, about
17, wearing a long black coat.
This had been team work. The
perpetrators could easily have
been hurricane refugees since
the woman had what I believe
was a French accent.
There are surveillance
cameras on some aisles in

"I didn't want to get
involved," one man sheepishly
told the police, who said most of
them were just afraid to call.
The faded newspaper report
is here on my desk. It was
kept in a special file I listed as
important. I quoted that
report today as a memorial to
Luke, the physician, is the
only gospel writer that
mentions the lawyer who
asked the question of Jesus,
"And who is my neighbor."
Thelaw of Moses clearly
stated the "we should love our
neighbor as we love
ourselves." (Leviticus 19:18)
Then Jesus told the story of
the man who fell among
thieves. They robbed him and
beat him and left him for
dead. A priest came by and
saw him and passed by on the
other side. A Levite came by,
looked at him and passed by
on the other side. A certain
Samaritan came, saw him,
stopped and had compassion
on him. He bound up his
wounds and took him to an
Inn and left provisions forhis
full recovery.
Now Jesus asked a simple
question of an astute lawyer.
"Which of these three do you
think was neighbor to him
that fell among thieves?" And
the lawyer said, "He that
showed mercy on him." Jesus
said in reply, "Go thou and do
likewise." (Luke 10:30-37)
As believers, we are bound
by these simple truths. How
many "Kitty" Genovese will
you have in your life? I guess
it's all according to how many
neighbors we find that need
John writes, "But who ever
has this world's goods, and
sees his brother in need, and
shuts up his heart from him,
how does the love of God
abide in him? My little
children, let us not love in

and in truth." (I John 3:17-18)

Publix. But even though I
reported the theft to the store
managers and police, little
seemed to be done. Even if the
thieves were identified from
the tapes, they were long gone.
The solution is to be on guard
and to carry only necessary
items in your wallet. I also
learned that the blue belt in the
front of each shopping cart can
be used for anchoring your
purse. It is also a deterrent to
have a purse that is not easy to
get into. I have since changed
the type of purse I carry.
Words of wisdom: Reporting
your theft to the police will
save you the cost of obtaining a
new driver's license and having
only one credit card and no
blank checks in your purse is

In the age of

the national


I have issues with clutter.
I would say I have a clutter problem, but
problems are so last century. Nobody
acknowledges problems anymore. I tackle my
issues by buying a book on conquering clutter.
Does that get rid of the clutter? Alas, no. It
gets me a vision of pile-free tabletops and
organized closets. It gets me a plan, steps,
encouragement, hope.
It gives me a strategy.
But a
strategy alone
won't make
clutter go away.
On the
national level,
Washington's -
answer to the r 1 ac1
issues formerly
known as Marsha Mercer
problems is the
President Bush is especially keen on National
Strategies. We currently have:
The National Drug Control Strategy; The
National Strategy for Suicide Preveption; The
National Strategy for Homeland Security; The
National Strategy for Combating Terrorism;
The National Security Strategy; The National
Numeracy Strategy; The National Strategy to
Secure Cyberspace.
That's not all, but you get the idea. We're hip
deep in strategies.
And yet polls show that people feel the
country is headed in the wrong direction. They
feel less secure, not more. Maybe what people
want is fewer strategies and more action.
Here's the life cycle of a National Strategy:
The president makes a major speech and
explains that the government is on the case. All
necessary resources will be devoted to these
important challenges. We will skimp on
nothing. For a day or two, everybody dissects
the National Strategy. Andthen the National
Strategy is never heard of again.
A strategy, according to the dictionary, is "the
science of planning and directing large-scale
military operations," particularly moving forces
into the best position before they confront the
enemy. There's the problem.
We're always moving our forces into place on
one issue after another. We keep waiting for the
promised victory. We want to win just one of
these wars - on poverty, on drugs, on
illiteracy, on fat on terrorism. I'll bet
psychologists will discover there's an inverse
relationship between the number of strategies a
country pursues and the national level of calm.
Last week, President Bush defended his
course in Iraq, urged patience and issued the
"National Strategy for Victory in Iraq," a
38-page document with laudable goals but no
Democrats complained that there was
nothing new in the president's strategy. It
wasn't "a coherent detailed plan" to exit Iraq.
They don't have one either, but no matter.
Everybody wants victory in Iraq, but the
president's strategy read like a public relations
campaign. In 35 pages, it uses the word victory
34 times, strategic 34 times and strategy
46 times.
It never mentions we have a problem in Iraq.
But we do have challenges. Do we ever.
The Victory in Iraq strategy has eight
strategic pillars. The first is "Defeat the
Terrorists and Neutralize the Insurgency."
All the best National Strategies have pillars.
Last month, the president brought out his
National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza. The
flu pandemic strategy had three pillars. The'
. first Preparedness and Communication. Check.
All these pillars remind me of that Bridge to
the 21st Century Bill Clinton was always
building. Where did it take us anyway?
We live in an age of proliferating strategies.
It wasn't always this way.
When President Kennedy made his famous
speech to Congress in May 1961, launching a
space program that would send a man to the
moon, he was able to state what he wanted to
do and a timetable for it in one, simple
"First, I believe that this nation should
commit itself to achieving the goal, before this
decade is out, of landing a man on the moon
and returning him safely to the earth."
Kennedy then laid out various steps such a
major task would require, and he said, "In a,
very real sense, it will not be one man going to
the moon - if we make this judgment
affirmatively, it will be an entire nation. For all
of us must work to put him there."

America's payrolls snapped

stronger than economists
were expecting. Before the

Wal-Mart apologizes to black

man for bad check accusation

TAMPA - Wal-Mart has
apologized to a black man
who was accused of trying to
pass a bad check as he was
buying thousands of dollars
in holiday gift cards to dis-
tribute to his company's
Employees of a Wal-Mart
Supercenter called deputies
last week to apprehend
Reginald Pitts after he hand-
ed over a $13,600 check to
pay for 520 gift cards that
were to be given to employ-
ees at GAF Materials Corp.,
a roofing materials manufac-
turer where Pitts is a human
Resources manager.
The' company, vhich had.
$1.6 billion in revenue ,last
year, had been spending
about $50,000 a year on
Wal-Mart gift cards and
never had a problem when it
sent a white employee to
pick them up.
"I keep going over and
over the incident in my

mind," Pitts told the St.
Petersburg Times. "I cannot
come up with any possible
reason why I was treated like
this except that I am black."
Wal-Mart, based in
Bentonville, Ark., has
launched an internal investi-
gation of the incident and
apologized to Pitts.
"We probably could have
handled it better, but I won't
know until we complete the
investigation," Wal-Mart
spokeswoman Sharon
Weber said Friday. "Our
company is built upon
respect for the individual,

and we have no tolerance for
discrimination of any type."
Pitts said that when he
went to the store last week to
pick up the already printed
cards, store managers
stalled for about two hours
after he handed them the
check while he stood waiting
by the customer service
desk. He had handed them
his GAF business card, his
driver's license and the toll-
free numbers to GAF's bank.

allow for 601," Stubbs said.
"Home improvement super-
centers like Lowe's and Home
Depot are a new perspective in
The city parking space
requirement based on the traf-
fic at retail stores doesn't fit
home improvement stores. So
Home Depot had a traffic and
parking study done that
showed the store only required
601 spaces and company offi-
cials "feel it would be a waste of
land and use to have that addi-
tional parking," Stubbs said.
The other two variances are
to ask for two additional free-
standing signs beyond the one
that codes allow, Stubbs said.
"If everything goes like they
want it to go and they start
construction in January or
February, they want to open by
April or May is what I think
they said," Stubbs said. "It usu-
ally takes three months'once

they start building to
The store is estimated to
need 150 employees, Stubbs
wrote in a memorandum to
City Council.
At least one member of the
Planning and Zoning Board
was not surprised.
"I've known about it for
some time I knew it was com-
ing and it just makes sense. It's
not just Lake City and
Columbia County that they
would be serving. I'm sure
Home Depot looks at the big
picture," said Bruce Drawdy,
board member. He added that
he thought the store would
draw business from
surrounding counties.
"It's a good thing, competi-
tion is a good thing. I think
them wanting to be here just
shows what a good area
Columbia County is for busi-
ness expansion," Drawdy said.

presenting their case. But
Kruzel, a Presbyterian min-
ister, said it played no
greater role than other
pieces of evidence.
The pastor said a recent
letter introduced as evidence
by prosecutors helped jurors
evaluate whether Smith was
capable of being rehabilitat-
ed, an argument defense

attorneys made for sparing
his life. In the letter, Smith
described how to incapaci-
tate another inmate with a
punch to the throat and said
he would break his brother's
jaw if he ever visited him in
jail. Smith's brother, John,
testified against him and led
authorities to Carlie's body
at a church property.

he was later turned over to

His brother was treated

Gootee said even if no
charges are brought by his
brother, Kaylor still will be
prosecuted for possessing a

dangerous weapon on school
'"The physical injury was
minor, but the entire incident
of having a pocket knife on a
school bus is simply not

gy in the document before
approving it during the
meeting. Minor changes in the
document included defining
playgrounds and changing the
wording to public playgrounds.
Also clarified was the defini-
tion of a sexual offender, which
is the label given to those who
commit crimes against victims
who are younger than 13 years
In addition, the restrictions
and 100-foot buffer zones on
school bus stops were lifted for
non-school days and the past
offenders or predators would
be allowed to enter the restrict-
ed areas during an emergency
situation where a child's life was
in danger.
Later in the meeting, after the
board of commissioners unani-
mously approved the new ordi-
nance, a presentation by
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee detailed what it would

entail of the sheriff's office to
enforce the new ordinance.
A report by Gootee said it
would take four additional posi-
tions to handle the duties
required by the ordinance at an
estimated $170,946, which
included salary and benefits.
The sheriff also told officials
other costs would have to be
included for materials, operat-
ing costs and capital outlay. The
additional items would increase
the estimated cost to
approximately $291,186.
Commissioners have author-
ized county manager Dale
Williams to meet with Sheriff
Gootee and try to devise a
method to cut some of the costs
associated with the ordinance
and present the recommenda-
tions at a later meeting.
The local ordinance will
become effective when filed
with the Department of State
and no later than Dec. 10.

The Big

IByfPlw7 What if I messed
By C up my line?
Drew Charles

I remember thinking that the announcement hadn't done us
"And finally," said the man up front at church, "you're all invited to
our church school's Christmas program this evening. It begins at-
just a moment... okay, as your bulletin says, the program begins at
7:30. Cake and hot apple cider will be served afterward, so be sure to
drop by if you can."
Stunned, I sat with my family in our regular row. Drop by if
you can? Is this why we had canceled recess for two months?.So
our audience could drop by? I wanted something more, some-
thing big, something dramatic.....
"Folks? Folks? Let me have your undivided attention. I stand
before you with a very special announcement. Tonight at 7:30 our
fellowship hall with be graced by the.18 elite members of our
church school in their annual Christmas pageant. Their program is
entitled-Joanne, could I have some quiet organ music? ... yes
there we go. Their program is entitled, "Angel and Lambs,
Ladybugs and Fireflies."' Now please remain calm....
My daydream unrealized, I worried all afternoon about our
Christmas play. As lead firefly, I had worked hard on my line
("Follow me, everyone!") and at turning my hidden flashlight on
and off at just the right moment, and I wondered if anyone
would come to see it.
Evening came, and then night, and we picked up Grandma and
Grandpa and drove over to the school early so I could get ready
and so my family could get good seats. But when we got there,

the good seats
were gone.
Patiently they
sat waiting--
three full rows '
of grandparents
who had driven
in from Frazee
and Fargo and
Sioux Falls and
one set who _
flown in from /* a ,
Arizona and
who looked
cold. Behind them, a half dozen church members puttered with
their eight-millimeter cameras. Wow, I said to myself as Grandma
lamented our late arrival. This is bigger than I expected!
Suddenly I was no longer worried that not enough people
would show up. Now I was worried that too many people would
show up. This place is going to be packed by people expecting great
things, I thought. What if I messed up my line?
"Follow me, everyone!" It was an easy line. I had memorized it
the very first week. But what if I said, "Follow everyone, me"?
What if I forgot. my line altogether?
That would be disastrous. People would talk about it for
months. They'd see me in the lobby after-church and nod

knowingly to each other. "It's him," they'd whisper. "It's the
boy who ruined the Christmas play.".
Petrified I ran up the stairs-two at a time-to meet the other
kids. They were nervous too, and for the next 20 minutes we put
glitter on our wings and talked about how nervous we were. One
girl, Jenny Rogers, said she wasn't nervous at all, but she was
obviously just trying to be cool. How could she not be nervous?
This night had nervous written all over it.
By 7:20 our teacher was talking to us about everything we had
been through and reminding us to project. By 7:25 we were
downstairs, peaking around the corner. And then we were on-
winged and singing:
"Angels and lambs, ladybugs and fireflies
told everybody in sight
That Jesus was born in Beth-le-hem
On that Chri-ist-mas night.
The fireflies lit their lights so bright.
The butterflies and grasshoppers helped out too.
The ladybugs, cockatiels, hummingbirds, and owls
were the bird and insect publicity crew."
I got my line that Christmas night. Nailed it. But as I discov-
ered, it wouldn't have mattered a lick if I hadn't. Christmas
plays in small church schools were destined to be smashing
No matter how many mistakes we made, the response from
the audience was always the same: appreciate applause after
every nervous solo, howling laughter after every one-liner, a
thunderous standing ovation that clipped the end off our final
number, and when it was all over, the formation of eighteen
clusters of people hugging our little necks, remarking how they'd
"never seen anything so good'," and heaping on much more glory
than we ever expected or deserved-which, for Christmas, was
hardly a new concept.

ON D.E C. 1 0, 1 83 0, poet Emily Dickinson is born
in Amherst, Mass. Although she wrote 1,775 poems, only
seven were published in her lifetime.

ON DEC. 6, 1907,inWestVirginia'sMarion

miners - the worst mining disaster in American history.
Nationwide, a total of 3,242 miners were killed in mine acci-
dents in 1907..

OQ N D E C. 7, 19 2 5, future Tarzan actor Johnny
Weissmuller sets the world record for the 150-yard freestyle
swim. MGM later cast Weissmuller to play the title role in
"Tarzan the Ape Man" (1932).

0 N DEC.. 5, 1 9 3 3, the 18th Amendment is repealed,
bringing an end to the era of national prohibition of alcohol.
Some states continued Prohibition by maintaining statewide
temperance laws. Mississippi, the last dry state in the Union,
ended Prohibition in 1966.

,ON DEC. 11, 1 9 41, Buick lowers its prices to reflect
the absence of spare tires in its new cars. Widespread short-'

prohibiting spare tires in new cars.

ON D E C. 9, 1 9 5 , the right-wing John Birch Society
is established. Founded with only 11 members, by the early

expose a semi-secret international cabal whose members sit
in the highest places of influence and power worldwide.'

ON DEC. 8,' 1 96 9, at a news conference, President

troops to attack communist sanctuaries in Cambodia.

Peace is the stillness of a baby sleeping. Peace is a quiet walk in the woods.
the tranquility of a small pond. Peace is gentle love for one another.
Great word... Peace! It seems to be in stark contrast to our bus)', crazy
lives today. -Mtore and more things to do. too much traffic, noise and crowds
everywhere n'e go: and in the world around us, war and natural disasters.
These things are not peaceful. But, peace is not something outside ourselves. It
is within. It is the quiet calmness of mind and soul. unperturbed, undismay 'ed.
It is difficult to acquire this frame of mind. this serene spirit. To achieve it
Ire need guidance and help. We can turn to our church. There, ue can get our
problems in order: get a better perspective on our difficulties and consult with
our Creator. "lMay the God of peace... equip you with everything good for doing
His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him-...." (Hebrews 13:20-21)
Peace of heart is a tnwo-way street-our way to God. and His way to us.
Let God help you find peace within as you attend your chosen house of
worship each week.

of patriarch
Greek Orthodox patriarch of
the Holy Land believes Israel
is refusing to recognize his
elevation in order to extort his
support for a* controversial
land lease to Jewish groups in
east Jerusalem, a church
official said.
Patriarch Theofilos III, who
has sued Israel to recognize
his authority, will not approve
the land deal made under
ousted Patriarch Irineos, the
official said Sunday on
condition of anonymity
because he is not an
authorized spokesman.
The long-term leases
enraged the church's
predominantly Palestinian
flock because they
strengthened the Jewish
presence in east Jerusalem,
which Palestinians claim as
the capital of a future state.
Church tradition requires
Israel, the Falestinians and
Jordan to approve a new
patriarch. Israel, which wants
Theofilos to back the leases,
has not approved his

TULSA, Okla. - A group of
pastors fired up a crowd of
more than 300 people during
a rally around a Ten '
Commandments monument on
the Haskell County Courthouse.
U.S.. Sen. Tom Coburn spoke
in favor of the display, which .a
recent American Civil Liberties
Union lawsuit opposes, arguing
government is favoring one
. religion over another.
The case indicates that two
recent U.S: Supreme Court
rulings, which allowed one
commandments display and
barred another, did not settle
he dispute.
Coburn and others at the
rally contended that the
Commandments' tenets are
guidelines to a moral,
law-abiding society regardless
of religious beliefs. Some
2,835 citizens have signed a
pro-display petition, the Tulsa
World reported.
"Fwish this was in every

Coburn, a Republican. 'We :

Church tutorial program reaching the masses

light stealing limbs and
branches of oak trees, leads to
a bright future for children
who attend Union African
Methodist Episcopal (AME)
There, in a church that was
rebuilt a few years ago,
church members and church
officials have launched an
afterschool program to meet
their children's educational
The tutoring program at
Union AME Church began in
June after church officials
hosted a "Seeds for Success"
program. During the pro-
gram, church officials gave
students school supplies and
materials and told parents
what changes had taken place
in school district rules and
regulations as gave
students and parents informa-
.tion about the changes in the
* Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT').
The meeting; drew more
than 30 people and spawned a
concept for a church tutorial
program which continue's
close to six months after the
initial meeting.
Shirley Harris has been a
member of the church for
13 years and serves a church
missionary, stewardess,
trustees board member and
adult choir president.
However, her latest duty has
her serving as a tutor with
area students.

New film creates fresh debate about Christian author C.S. Lewis

AP Religion Writer

During the 42 years since
his death, the prolific C.S.
Lewis has never failed to lure
hordes of fans through his
writings ,- nor has the
Oxford and Cambridge,
literature scholar ceased
to -rouse antipathy from
religious skeptics.
Now next week's release of
the lavish Disney-Walden
Media film '"The Chronicles
of Narnia: The Lion, the
Witch and the Wardrobe,"
based on the first of Lewis'
seven children's novels, is
creating a new round of Lewis
Beside parallel marketing
blitzes for religious and
secular audiences, new
editions of Lewis' works have
been published, as have
numerous books and articles

about him and the film. There
are new; study guides, lec-
tures, Internet chatter,
audiotapes, music CDs,
games ... and one legal threat.
Americans United for
Separation of Church and
State has informed Florida
Gov. Jeb Bush that he
offended the U.S.
Constitution by choosing
"Lion" for his state's annual,
student reading campaign
because it's "filled with
allusions to Christianity."
True enough, the lion of
"Lion" is a Christ figure and
the other novels are filled
with 'biblical themes -
though like many young read-
ers, "Harry Potter" creator
J.K. Rowling . says she
"adored" Lewis' stories and
only grasped their Christian
inspiration as an adult.
The , Narnia series,
published from 1950 to 1956,

originated while Lewis was

Tolkien and Lewis were
close Oxford colleagues

loathed the Narnia books. Yet
Narnia probably wouldn't

As a young don, Lewis was
a thoroughgoing skeptic who
dismissed Christianity, in
part, because it resembled
ancient pagan myths about
dying-and-rising deities.
In 1931, the devoutly
Roman Catholic Tolkien and
another Christian scholar
spent a long evening with
"Jack" Lewis arguing religion.
Lewis wrote a friend that they
had convinced him "the story

myth: a myth working on us

Tigers stay perfect with win over Wildcats

Columbia hosts Lake
Weir at 7:30 p.m. today
in district matchup.
Columbia High's basketball team
shook off a sluggish first quarter and
went on beat Baker County High 60-44
on Friday in Lake City.
Kenny Williams opened the game
with a 3-pointer for CHS and the

Tigers quickly went up 7-2. However,
the Wildcats scored the final 14 points
of the quarter to take a 16-7 lead.
"We weren't taking the great shot on
offense in the first quarter," CHS head
coach Trey Hosford said. "We were just
taking our first decent look. I challenged
them to go inside-out. We put Byron
(Shemwell) in the high post and we got
some action in the second quarter."
Shemwell took up the challenge and
scored 10 points in the period, includ-
ing a pair of old-fashioned three-point
plays. Jakeem Hill scored nine points

in the quarter, all coming on offensive
Columbia had runs of 8-0 and 9-0 in
the quarter. Throw i4 baskets by
Vince Folston and Williams and the
Tigers led 30-26 at intermission.
"I was mainly trying to get to the bas-
ket, to get some easy buckets and get
their guys in foul trouble," Shemwell
said. "It helped to get the team up in the
second quarter, when they saw I was.
scoring. I stepped up and was ready to
play and they were ready to play."
Everybody got into the swing in the

third quarter, as seven Tigers scored
points. The result was a 20-10 quarter
and a 50-36 lead for CHS. Hosford kept
the substitutions coming.
"We have a district game tomorrow
and I was trying to save a little bit of
legs," Hosford said. 'Those guys
played well."
Shemwell added another three-
point play off a rebound in the fourth
quarter and finished with a game-high
19 points.
CHS continued on 2B

Girls with weights

CHS weightlifting
team expects to
build on success.
Columbia High's weight
room was packed with Lady
Tigers. It seemed new head
coach Mitch Shoup and assis-
tant coach Roger Little might
have to rent spaces for
Columbia's girls weightlifting
team to work out.
"Walking down the halls
and recruiting," Shoup gave
as the reason for the high
' turnout. "You just go out and
ask and sell it to them. Coach
(Kent) Maugeri did a good job
last year starting the program
off in the right direction."
In its infancy as an officially
sanctioned sport. by the
Florida High School Athletic
Association, the. current list of
girls weightlifting teams tallies
159 schools in eight sections.
Columbia is in Section 3,
which has 20 schools ranging
in size from Fort White and
Union County high schools to
Buchholz High.
The Lady Tigers open their
season at 4:30 p.m. Monday in
a dual meet at Fort White.
Weightlifting is catching on
as a way to improve in other
"We have got a lot of soft-
ball players and cheerleaders
coming out for conditioning in
their sport," Shoup said.
"They are looking to get fit
and toned and healthy. There
is a big selling point for that."
Shoup could almost field a
softball team from the return-
ing lifters, with five girls
combining the two sports.
"It keeps you in shape until
the other sport comes along

and it keeps me in shape for
catching," said Kori Drake,
one of the softball players.
Two of Columbia's softball
seniors, Marie Croft and Jenna
Payne, qualified for state in
weightlifting last season.
"I would like to make it, if it
doesn't interfere with soft-
ball," Michele Maxson said.
Jolene Hill would. prefer a
stop-off at state weightlifting
before softball begins. "I was-
n't at the total I wanted to be
last year," she said. "I hope to
get better and go to state."
Lifting competition consists
of bench press and clean and
jerk, the latter added last year
after the girls used to do the

power clean. Now, the weight
has to go over the head to a
locked-arm position.
The clean and jerk looks
tougher, but it is where most
of the girls perform best.
"I can get a lot more weight
than in the bench press,"
Maxson said.
"I like the clean and jerk a
lot better than the bench,"
Drake said.
"We are all lot stronger in
the clean and jerk, because we
are stronger with our legs,"
Chelsea Blair said.
Hill was a dissenter. "I like
the bench better," she said.
Jamie Williams said she
likes lifting in both and had a

Indians run past Newberry

Antwan Ruise
scores 34 points to
lead Fort White.
msarmento@lakecit .

FORT WHITE - One night
after scoring a season-low
38 points in a loss to Santa Fe
High, the Indians' offense was
back in high gear against
Newberry High, scoring
88 points in an 88-85 win on
Friday night
Spearheading the offensive
assault was Antwan Ruise,
who scored a season-high
34 points on 13-21 shooting
from the field.
"Yeah, I could have passed
it a little bit more," Ruise said
when he was asked if he felt
like he was in a zone. "Could
have made free throws. I was
just doing what I do."
What Ruise did was break
down the Panthers defense
whenever he wanted to with a
series of crossovers, stutter-
steps and hesitations, often

working his way into the lane
where he either hit a layup or
drew the foul.
But Ruise was far from a
one-man gang. . Owen
McFadden hit on 7-8 field goal
attempts for 16 points, and his
only two free throw makes
clinched the game for the
Indians -
them an )
86-80 lead
with 29
James also starred, scoring
12 points on 7-9 shooting,
including a bank shot follow-
ing a Newberry three with 16
seconds left to provide the
Indians with their final score.
Jeremy Harrell also made
his presence felt. Despite
scoring only four points, he
took a critical charge with
Fort White up by four with
56 seconds left, and his only
two free throws gave the
Indians an 84-78 lead with 39
seconds left.

The Panthers had their own
heroes on the night, as three
Newberry players scored
20 points. Matt Robinson led
the way with 23 points on 9-23
shooting, Larry Whitehead
soared for 22 points and hit
12-13 free throws and Antwan
Ivey hit for 21 points on five
three-pointers. His three at
the buzzer was the game's
final score.
Whitehead also provided
the highlight of the night
when he skyed for an alley-
oop pass from Ivey in the first
quarter and slammed it home.
The Indians led most of the
way and on one occasion
extended the lead to as many
as 11 points, but Newberry
had an answer each time. The
Panthers were able to rally
because of their rebounding,
as Newberry finished with an
outrageous 81 field goal
attempts on the night. By con-
trast, Fort White attempted
just 59 field goals, hitting 35 of
those shots for an red-hot

simple reason why boys do
better on the bench. 'That is
what the guys work on more,"
she said.
State qualifying for the girls
in will be two sectional meets
- at Suwannee High on Jan.
12 and at Keystone Heights
High on Jan. 27.
"We agreed to have what is
called a structured format,"
Shoup said. "All the schools
will be together at one loca-
tion, where everybody will be
judged by the same judges."
Columbia has the participa-
tion to be successful in
lifting's team scoring.
"We have a pretty strong
team, not only in strength but in

the number of girls," Blair said.
"' would like to see weightlift-
ing go further and see how
many girls make it to state."
Shoup believes the
opportunity is there.
"We have a solid core com-
ing back - a good foundation
to work with," Shoup said.
'The ones coming back have
great technique and the
others are picking it up quick.
"We are looking to improve
week by week. We are not
worrying about other teams.
We want to make sure we take
care of ourselves, to get better
and stronger. If we do that,
everything will take care of

Hokies could be new

bully on ACC block

Virginia Tech meets
FSU tonight in ACC
Associated Press
ida State coach Bobby
Bowden picked up the phone
Monday and called, of all peo-
ple, Virginia Tech coach
Frank Beamer.
Bowden wanted advice.
Nothing could have said
more about the revamped
Atlantic Coast Conference:
No longer are the Seminoles
the team to beat, the bully of
the block.
Florida State won the league
title 11 times in 12 years after
joining the ACC in 1992. But
that quickly changed when
Virginia Tech and Miami came
aboard last season.
The Hokies won the con-
ference title last season and
have a chance to repeat

tonight in the inaugural ACC
championship game at Alltel
Most believe No. 5
Virginia Tech (10-1, 7-1)
already has replaced the
Seminoles (7-4, 5-3) atop the
conference. But players and
coaches from both teams
agree the Hokies have to
prove it on the field when
they meet for the first time
since the 2002 Gator Bowl.
"Florida State has national
championships, Heisman
Trophy winners, league
championships. They have
done so many great things,"
Tech defensive end Darryl
Tapp said. "We've only had
one ACC championship.
We're. by far nowhere near
them, but we're taking some
right steps."
The Hokies can make
huge strides today by win-
ning the game, earning a
Bowl Championship Series
berth and probably playing in
the Orange Bowl.

Stewart's best year in
NASCAR's Nextel Cup series
reached the bottom line
Friday, with the two-time'
champion setting a record for
single-season earnings.
He picked up $6,173,633
from the points fund set up by
series sponsor. Nextel and
NASCAR, and added $517,000
in contingency, awards from
sponsors. Combined with the
prize money earned during
the 36-race season, Stewart's
total of $13,578,168 breaks the
previous mark of $10,979,757
by Jeff Gordon in 2001.
Stewart, who earlier in the
day had a migraine headache
that caused him to miss a
breakfast at which he was to
collect several checks from
sponsors, was feeling a lot
better on stage Friday night
during the formal awards

ceremony at the Waldorf
Astoria Hotel.

"I'm not going to give the

ing because we thought we'd
be collecting a big check at the
end of the season. We did it for
the thrill of winning races and,
at the time I started racing,
wanting my trophy to be bigger
than the next guy's trophy."
The other nine drivers in
the second Chase for the

championship also were given
big checks Friday night, along
with 11th-place finisher
Gordon and rookie of the year
Kyle Busch.
Runner-up Greg Biffle got a

Donovan goes for 200 wins

Associated Press

Billy Donovan gladly shares
credit for his success at Florida.
Like an entertainer receiving
an award on stage, Donovan
thanks former players Brent
Wright, Mike Miller, Udonis
Haslem, David Lee, Matt
Walsh and Anthony Roberson.
He mentions assistant coaches,
administrators and the athletic
director. He also talks about
hpw fortunate he's been.
Donovan is likely to go
through his speech again
today, when the 11th-ranked
Gators '(6-0) host Central
Florida. The 40-year-old coach
is one win away from becom-
ing the fastest in school histo-
ry to reach 200 victories and
could get it against the Golden
Knights (4-0).
"It's not me. There's a lot of
people that have to take cred-
it," Donovan said. "When we
win, I feel like the University
of Florida wins, our team
wins, our players win, the past
players win.
"I'm proud of what we built.
But I also realize that when
people say you're going for
your 200th win, it's really not
me. There's too many other
people that are involved. ... It's
everybody involved, and
that's kind of the way I've
always thought."
Norm Sloan, who had two
coaching stints at Florida
(1960-66 and 1980-89) won
235 games in 15 seasons. He
reached win No. 200 in his
372nd game.
Donovan, who is in his 10th
season with the Gators, can
accomplish the feat in his
292nd game - 80 games
faster than Sloan.
"It's meaningful to me
because in today's day and,
age; in. college coaching or
coaching in general, it's very
difficult to stay at a place for a

Florida coach Billy Donovan shouts instructions during the second
half against Vanderbilt in Gainesville on Feb. 23. The 40-year-old
coach is one win away from 200 victories. The 11th-ranked Gators
(6-0) host Central Florida today.

long period of time," Donovan
said. "It's very, very hard."
Donovan's tenure clearly
has been a successful one at
Florida, where he essentially
made basketball matter at a
football school.
He has led the Gators to
seven consecutive NCAA tour-
naments, including the nation-
al title game in 2001 against
Michigan State, and might be
in the midst of his best
coaching job.
Donovan lost his top three
scorers from last season -
Lee, Walsh and Roberson -
and his best recruit was aca-
demically ineligible. The Gators
were left trying to replace
60 percent of their offense with
four unproven sophomores in
the starting lineup. Not surpris-
ingly, the team was unranked in

the preseason poll.
,But Florida has been one of
the biggest surprises since.
The Gators upset Wake
Forest and Syracuse - both
ranked - to win the Coaches
vs. Cancer Classic in New York.
They also erased a 17-point
deficit to beat Florida State.
Donovan has the program
off to its best start in more
than two decades. Only two
other Florida teams - the
1984-85 and 1951-52 squads -
have started 7-0.
.So win No. 200 could be
Ironically, UCF coach Kirk
Speraw also needs one win to
reach No. 200. But Speraw
might have to wait for his
milestone; the Gators are 7-0

ATLANTA - LSU will get

But we're never going to

That one loss was excruci-
ating - the Tigers squan-

at home and lost 30-27 in over-
time. But, if it's any consola-
tion, there's no guarantee that
a perfect season would have
put LSU in position to play for
the national championship.
USC and Texas started the
season 1-2 in The Associated
Press rankings, and they've
held the top two spots in the
BCS standings the entire way.
In all likelihood, LSU would
have been stuck in third,
preparing for the same fate
that another Tiger team had
to endure last season.
Auburn was perfect last
season, but two other unbeat-
en teams, USC and
Oklahoma, got the spot in the
national title game. Those
Tigers settled for a trip to the
Sugar Bowl, where they com-
pleted a 13-0 season that was
only good enough for No. 2 in
the rankings.
'We still have an opportuni-

ty to accomplish a number of
things," LSU defensive line-
man Kyle Williams said.
"There always will be the
question of what-if. What if we
had won that game? But I've
always felt that USC and
Texas have been the two most
consistent teams all year. If
they keep winning, they
deserve the shot they're get-
ting. We were not able to per-
form as consistently, but I feel
good about where we are."
Georgia (9-2) also can feel
good . about its season,
though the Bulldogs weren't
too far away from their own
perfect mark. The Bulldogs
lost to Florida 14-10 when
starting quarterback D.J.
Shockley was out with a knee
injury, then fell to Auburn

of this game will settle for a
return trip to the Georgia

Smoking mom turns deaf ear

to her family's pleas to quit

DEAR ABBY: My mother,
"Adele," never misses your col-
timn, so I'm hoping this will get
her attention. She has smoked
for most of my 28 years of life,
with the exception of when she
"quit" from 2000 to 2003. I beg
her not to smoke around me or
my 3- and 4-year-olds. My
daughter has even told her she
smells bad and asked her to
put out her cigarette.
Adele claims she shouldn't
have to go outside to smoke
because smoke rises, and
although you can see and smell
it, there are no chemicals left in
the air to hurt us. Adele says
the reason she doesn't want to
quit is she read somewhere
that quitting "cold turkey"
increases your chance of com-
plications from smoking. She
refuses to believe she's hurting
Would you please tell her
that not only is it inconsiderate
and selfish to tell us to leave
the house or get out of the car
if we don't want to breathe in
the smoke, it's also hurting her
and putting her grandchildren
at risk? - CAN'T GET
THROUGH: Your mother is
severely addicted to tobacco
and in a state of denial. It is
common knowledge that sec-
ondhand smoke is harmful.
That's why some states have
outlawed smoking in the work-
place and public buildings.
I don't know where your
mother got the notion that

Abigail Van Buren

quitting smoking cold turkey
could have a negative impact
on her health. For years, doc-
tors have said that it's.the most
effective way to stop. For
smokers who can't face the
challenge of sudden withdraw-
al from nicotine, there are now
gums, patches and cessation
programs to help people break
the habit. Your mother's prob-
lem isn't that she's ignorant;
it's that she's so wedded to her
addiction she doesn't want to
As much as you love her,
you are now a mother yourself.
It is your job to protect your
children from anything that
could harm them, and that
includes secondhand smoke.
From now on, do not take them
to your mother's home;
instead, entertain her in your
smoke-free home. If she insists
on smoking in her car, you will
have to be the one to provide
the transportation. And for
your own sanity, when the time
comes for your mother to pay
the piper as her own mother
did, do not grieve that you
didn't have more time with her.
She lived her life the way she

DEAR ABBY: I am in my
freshman year of college, living
in the dorms. I have been baby-
sitting for the' same family for
about four years. Their three
children are all under the age
of 5, yet I am being paid only $6
an hour - a dollar more than
when I first started baby-sitting
the first two children as a high
school student.
The average baby-sitting
rate for a college student is
much higher than I have been
charging. I have a friendly rela-
tionship with the mother, but I
still feel hesitant to tell her that
I'd like to be paid more. How
do I go about this? - ANNA
DEAR ANNA: Because you
have a friendly relationship
with the mother, call her and
let her know that you'll be rais-
ing the price for your services.
Do not apologize for doing so.
Explain that the cost of living
has increased since she first
hired you. In addition, your
qualifications have improved.
In the. workplace, many
women older than you have a
problem with speaking up and
asking for a raise to which they
are entitled because they were
raised to believe that "good
girls" are modest and shouldn't
brag. That kind of thinking can
be a real handicap in the busi-
ness world. So start now. This
will be good practice for when
you are older.
M Write Dear Abby at P.O. Box
69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

The Suwannee River chemical plant will be shuttered in the sec ond half of 2014. Initial closure activities will result in an immediate reduction of approximately 250 people, the release said. Final closure in 2014 will result in an additional reduction of approximately 100 people, a cumulative reduction of approximately 50 percent from current levels. However, PotashCorp White Springs will continue to operate its Swift Creek Chemical com plex and Suwannee River granu lation plants, maintaining more 250 laid off Tuesday; 100 more to follow.

The board will hold its second public hearing on a text amend ment to Columbia Countys mixed use district-inter modal (MUD-I) land develop ment regulations that would allow agriculture and silviculture under the industrial park and commer cial transitional categories. The application came from the Plum Creek Land Company, the owner of the 2,622 acre (4.1 square mile) intermodal park nestled between the Lake City Gateway Airport and the Corrections Corporation of America Prison on East US90. They wanted to really clarify and make sure it was understood that...agriculture and silviculture were permitted uses, County Manager Dale Williams said Tuesday. You might think, well, everybody would assume that. We certainly did.

WEATHER, 2A Merry Christmas from the Reporter and many others By AMANDA WILLIAMSON For the second year in a row, the Columbia County School District ranked the majority of its teachers as highly effective despite low FCAT and endof-course exam grades reported earlier in the year. Not one teacher in the county was rated as needs improvement or unsatis factory, according to perfor mance-based teacher grades released Tuesday by the Florida Department of Education. The data reflect that 78.5 percent of Columbia County teachers were highly effective and 21.1 percent were effective. According to the FDOE, 42 of the countys 701 teachers were not evaluated. Certainly the 78.5 percent is indicative of the many, many outstanding teachers that we have, said Columbia County School Superintendent Terry Huddleston. However, I know there were some [teachers] that were marked needs improve ment. But if they teach a nonFCAT tested subject, they get a school grade and not a grade based on the students they taught... In some cases, it inflat ed the evaluation to effective or even highly effective. In addition, less than 30 per cent of teachers in the county teach classes that are tested by FCAT or EOC exams. Statewide statistics Statewide, 32.3 percent of Florida teachers were highly effective and 65.6 percent of teachers were effective. Only 1.4 percent were listed to be in need of improvement, down from last years 1.9 percent. Just 0.2 percent were rated unsatis factory, the lowest measure on the scale. There were only two counties Leon and Okaloosa that earned higher percentages of highly effective teachers than Columbia County. Teachers in surrounding counties were ranked significantly lower in the highly effective category, with Hamilton at 7.7 percent, Suwannee at 19.5 percent and Union at 38.4 percent. Unless the students pass every assessment 100 per cent, theres always room for improvement, Huddleston said. I think our teachers try to improve every year. Last year, all Columbia County teachers were found to be either highly effective or effective as well with 57.5 percent highly effective and 42.5 percent effective. Huddleston attributed the 21 percent increase in highly effec tive teachers to a change in the method used to monitor teach ers. In the past, the school dis trict used the Marzano model for the evaluation process, but administrators were not given clear instructions. The dis trict switched to the Copeland model, which allows the prin cipal to observe student behav ior as well as teachers skills. For example, in the Marzano model, the principal would have to see the teacher giving clear instructions or class rules to the students for the teacher to earn performance points; but the Copeland model lets prin cipals view the student behav ior as evidence of the teachers accomplishments. Evaluations are based on two points principal observa tion and student achievement. Throughout the year, principals observe teachers on a variety of indicators listed in the Copeland model, such as classroom man agement and professional learn ing. Scores dont reflect grades In June 2013, the Lake City Reporter reported on FCAT and EOC scores for the county. According to the FDOE, local reading FCAT scores dipped below the state average for sev enth through 10th-graders. In math, only area fourth-graders 100% of local teachers rated Highly Effective or Effective by state. Board to approve land changes, easement exchanges COUNTY COMMISSION PREVIEW Dale Williams Safety improvement to I-75/441 underway From staff reportsGAINESVILLE An $8 mil lion safety improvement project began Monday in Alachua with construction of a new south bound Interstate 75 on-ramp from U.S. 441. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project also includes building a park and ride lot, replacing high-mast lighting and realigning the south bound off-ramp. The existing southbound on-ramp for traffic heading east on U.S. 441 will be removed. Once the new ramp is open, the eastbound left turn lane on U.S. 441 will also be removed. Crews are working in the area where the new ramp will be built on the site of the former KFC restaurant on the south side of U.S. 441. No lane closures are expected for the next month as the work is off of the roadway. Daytime lane closures will begin in January. Southland Construction Inc. of Apopka is doing the work for FDOT. The project is scheduled to be completed by early 2015. An average 47,500 vehicles travel this area of Interstate 75 and more than 21,000 vehicles travel on U.S. 441 each day.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Store owner guilty in wildlife case KEY WEST — The owner of a Michigan aquarium supply store has pleaded guilty in Florida to illegal trafficking in wildlife including tropical fish, sea fans, sharks and alligators. Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that 80-year-old Richard Perrin faces up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines at a March 25 sentencing for a wildlife trafficking conspir-acy in Key West. Perrin owns the Tropicorium store in Romulus, Mich., that bills itself online as the Midwest’s largest deal-er in tropical and marine life. Authorities say Perrin and a co-defendant failed to get required licenses to harvest marine life dur-ing multiple trips to the Florida Keys. They admit-ted in court to poaching baby alligators in the Big Cypress National Preserve for sale through their busi-ness. One juvenile alligator was sold to an undercover federal wildlife agent.Nativity scene on display at Capitol TALLAHASSEE — A nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus is on dis-play at the Capitol through the holiday season. A private group called the Florida Nativity Scene Committee installed the display Tuesday. It is doing so with the help of the Chicago-based, con-servative law firm Thomas More Society. The event featured prayers and a children’s choir singing Christmas carols. Organizer Pam Olsen said it was a celebra-tion of Christ. Another group, Reclaim Christ for Christmas, will add to the display with depictions of the Three Wise Men said to have delivered gifts to the baby Jesus. The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida executive director Howard Simon said because the manger scene is paid for privately, the state is open-ing itself to allowing any-one to use the Capitol to express messages.School Christmas tree catches fire PORT ORANGE — A Christmas caught fire in an elementary school classroom before classes started on Tuesday. An assistant principal at Sweetwater Elementary School discovered the fire while making rounds before school started. Officials believe the tree caught fire shortly before the assistant principal spot-ted it. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports no students were injured, but eight classrooms were dis-placed by the fire. “Fortunately it had not been burning for a long time,” said Volusia County school district spokes-woman Nancy Wait. The building houses classrooms for students in grades one through three. Students were sent to the media center for the day. Wait says the fire didn’t cause much damage and it did not damage the school’s electrical system. The fire was contained to one classroom, but there was smoke damage in all the classrooms in Building 3, Wait said. Initial reports indicated that a tree had been left plugged in and it overheat-ed. The newspaper report-ed that other trees found in nearby classrooms were plugged in but the lights were turned off. Prince to open annual Essence Fest NEW ORLEANS N ext year’s Essence Festival is getting a dose of music royalty from Prince. The “Purple Rain” singer-songwriter is headlining the 20th annual Essence, a celebration of black music and culture being held July 3-6 in New Orleans. Prince, who performed at Essence in 2004, also headlined this year’s South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. His newest single, “Screwdriver,” debuted earlier this year. Still, Prince is best known for chart-topping hits like “1999,” ‘’Cool” and “Purple Rain.” Essence has been held every Independence Day weekend since 1995, when it marked the 25th anni-versary of Essence magazine. The event includes nightly concerts at the Louisiana Superdome and empowerment seminars during the day at a nearby convention cen-ter. Organizers said the rest of the lineup will be announced later.Bruce Lee’s yellow jumpsuit up for auction HONG KONG — Bruce Lee fans who covet the original yellow jumpsuit that the martial arts legend wore onscreen will get a chance to bid for it at a Hong Kong auction this week. It’s part of a collection of 14 items including clothing and props going on the block on Thursday. Lee wore the yellow suit, with black stripes down the sides, in “Game of Death.” Lee died in 1973, before the movie was finished. An incomplete version was released that year, followed by a feature-length version in 1978 cobbled together with footage filmed after his death. Lee’s death at 32 from an allergic reaction to painkillers came at the height of his fame. The actor’s leg-endary kung fu skills and screen presence helped him become a glob-al superstar and popularized martial arts films across the world. Quentin Tarantino paid homage to Lee’s jumpsuit by dressing Uma Thurman in one for his “Kill Bill” movies. Spink auction house estimates the suit will fetch 250,000 to 300,000 Hong Kong dollars ($32,250-$38,700).Shelton, Bryan returning as hosts of ACM Awards NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan are return-ing as hosts of next year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. The country music stars teamed up last year and things went so well they’re coming back for the April 6 awards at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The academy also announced Monday that Florida Georgia Line will host its Fan Jam, the parallel event that runs concurrently with the awards. Bryan and FGL are two of the hottest acts in Nashville at the moment. Bryan won the ACM’s fan-voted entertainer of the year award last April in something of an upset, and Florida Georgia Line was the acade-my’s new artist of the year. The academy also announced that it will tape its annual television spe-cial the day after the awards, to air later in the spring. No word yet on who will perform.

Have breakfast with the Chief; learn how city measures up By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Lake City residents can discuss annual sta tistical crime data with the Lake City Police Chief during her quarterly Breakfast with the Chief Saturday at First Apostolic Church. Over a traditional breakfast of eggs and sausage, Chief Argatha Gilmore will detail a mixture of annual in-house statistics from the police department and quarterly reports from Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Held Saturday between 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., the event is free for the public to attend. This is the last Breakfast of 2013, said LCPD public information officer Steve Shaw. If anyone has not had the opportunity to come to any of the others, I would encourage them to come to this one to see what the Lake City Police Department is doing in the commu nity. Similar to previous Breakfasts, the police department plans to present their report card on crime. Normally, Shaw said these are quarterly statistics, but on Saturday they will be yearly statistics. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement semi-annual Uniform Crime Report, the citys crime index decreased 2.9 percent, sliding from 580 in 2012 to 563 in 2013. Reports of forcible rapes, aggravated assaults, burglaries and motor vehicles thefts in the city all decreased between the first half of 2012 and 2013. Reported cases of robbery and larceny edged up slightly from last years numbers. However, LCPDs number of arrests jumped roughly 31.5 percent, climbing from 311 in 2012 to 409 in 2013. The percentage of cleared cases also improved from 16.9 in 2012 to 24.9 in 2013 just shy of the 25.8 percent statewide average. Were running a pretty steady crowd with the Breakfast with the Chief, Shaw said. So, I expect between 70 to 80 in attendance, but we could love to have a lot more. The church is located at 724 SW McFarlane Ave. For more information, con tact the police department at (386)752-4344. Gilmore Statistical data, eggs and sausage part of menu for Saturday breakfast.

United Way of Suwannee Vallley luncheon next week From staff reports United Way of Suwannee Valley will con duct its December com munity fundraising cam paign report luncheon at Columbia County Senior Services LifeStyle Enrichment Center at noon on December 11. The cost of the luncheon is $12 per person. Guest speaker at the luncheon will be Christy Gibbons of Childrens Home Society, one of the 22 United Way of Suwannee Valley affiliat ed agencies. The theme for this years campaign is Imagine Me. James Montgomery, a member of the United Way of Suwannee Valley Challengers Club, the organizations leadership donors, will speak about investing in our commu nity as a member of the Challengers Club. The luncheon menu includes honey baked ham with pineapple glaze, baked sweet potato with cinnamon and apples, green bean casserole, dinner rolls, sweetened and unsweetened tea, water, coffee, and pumpkin pie with whipped top ping. The luncheon is catered by A2Z. During each month of United Ways annual community fundrais ing campaign, the local United Way conducts a campaign report luncheon to provide an opportunity for campaign team volunteers, com munity citizens, business representatives and agen cy personnel to learn more about the partner agency services, United Way community impact initiatives and busi nesses supporting our communitys well being through their support of the United Way. Reservations for the luncheon may be made by contacting the United Way office at 386-7525604 x 102 by December 6. United Way of Suwannee Valley is a community impact and fundraising organiza tion which, utilizing volunteers on all levels, advances the common good by identifying unmet community needs and seeking to alleviate those needs through United Way of Suwannee Valley initiatives and the funding of 22 affiliated health and human ser vice agencies. than 350 positions at those facilities. The layoffs werent isolated to White Springs. PotashCorp released an additional 695 workers in Saskatchewan (440), New Brunswick (130), North Carolina (85) and Trinidad (40). The company-wide layoffs translate to an 18 percent reduction in PotashCorps total workforce. This was not something that was done lightly, White Springs Public Affairs Manager Mike Williams said. We truly believe in treating our employees like family. Its like terminating your brother or sister. This does not reflect on the talent, skillset or performance of the people affected. Our thoughts, prayers, and concerns are with the impacted members of the PotashCorp family. We want to do everything possible to assist them in this transition and treat them with the respect they deserve. Williams said affected employees will con tinue to receive full-time pay through Feb. 2 and will receive employee-specific severance packages on Feb. 3. The lifespan of the existing phosphate rock mine will be extended by about five years, the release said, due to lower produc tion levels following the layoffs. PotashCorp also announced Bill Donohue, a veteran manager from the companys Weeping Water and Cincinnati feed phos phate facilities, would take over as general manager at White Springs. Williams said Terry Baker, the facilitys former GM, is set to become environmental affairs manager for the phosphate division. Media reports link the PotashCorp cut backs to a combination of muted fertilizer demand in developing countries and a pot ash price war initiated by Eastern European interests. For example, the government of India announced in May it would cut subsidies for potash and phosphate fertilizers by 15 per cent for the 2013-14 fiscal year, dampening demand for materials produced by compa nies like PotashCorp. Indias population, currently around 1.2 billion and growing, drives a significant seg ment of market changes related to agricul tural and fertilizer demand worldwide. Another global event affecting companies like PotashCorp came after the dissolution of Belarusian Potash Company (BPC), a joint venture established between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, two of the worlds leading potash exporters. Russian billionaire Suleiman Kerimov attempted to buy a majority share of Belarus leading potash company in 2012. In response Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko effectively dissolved the BPC agreement, lead ing to a price war between the two European nations that sent potash and phosphate prices into a downward spiral as competing indus tries attempted to undercut one another. Due to the turmoil in the global potash, phosphate and nitrogen markets, PotashCorp CEO Bill Doyle felt the cutbacks in places like White Springs were essential in maintaining the companys long-term potential and global competitiveness. While these are difficult decisions, we know that they help ensure our company remains positioned for the future and able to grow long-term value for those who depend on our sustainability and success, Doyle said in a prepared statement. As for the local impact, Williams said PotashCorp White Springs wont forget its local North Florida family. Weve always been partners with the com munity, he said. That will always continue. commercial and residential development. Part of that development includes a rail spur that would complement existing CSX infrastructure running through Osceola National Forest north of the site. However, the U.S. Forest Service denied approval for the proposed rail spur location in Spring 2013, citing concerns it would threaten a population of red-cockaded woodpeck ers, a species listed as near threatened according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and protected by U.S. environ mental government enti ties. In order to secure an easement along the new proposed location of the rail spur (about one mile west of the nixed location), the county plans to initiate an agreement process with the Forest Service that more or less equates to a land swap. Plum Creek is going to provide a trade in prop erty for the [rail spur] easement, Williams said. When that easement is granted, it will be granted to Columbia County. It has to be granted to Columbia County because we intend to use grant moneys to build that rail spur. Only the governmental entity is qualified to receive the grant. In return, Plum Creek will grant an easement through portions of the Florida Scenic Trail that run through its land as well as a number of other properties to the Forest Service. The federal government doesnt just give you an easement for nothing. Their policies dont allow that, Williams said. They want something in return. They wanted an easement over that part of the trail they previously did not have. Now Plum Creek is giving an easement to the Forest Service for that trail and other properties. Plum Creek, one of the largest private landowners in the U.S., holds more than 448,000 acres across 21 coun ties in the State of Florida. Williams estimated the agreement process theyre about to initiate with the Forest Service could take around 14 months alone and speculated that it would probably be two years before construction began on the proposed rail spur. However, he said the intermodal park would be open for business if an inter ested company didnt need access to a railroad line, going so far as to say road construction could be has tened if the right business looked to locate in the area. If its not rail-dependent... we can certainly accommo date them, he said. The board of county commissioners will meet Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex. BOCC Continued From 1A passed at a higher rate than students state wide. For Columbia County eigth-graders, the passing rate in the math FCAT portion was 20 points below the state average. Overall, Columbia County fell below the state average on EOC exams administered this past spring. Last year there was concern about the number of highly effective teachers and effective teachers, but the county still had F and D-ranked schools, Huddleston said. He believes the disparity can happen because many factors contribute to a childs learning, outside of teacher performance. Poverty, for example, plays a tremendous role in the way students respond to school work, he added. All of those things can affect even an out standing teachers ability to see marked growth in an academic year, Huddleston said. State officials said, however, that differ ence probably stems at least in part from the fact that, while state law provides a frame work for how the evaluations are conducted, districts also have a great deal of leeway in determining what makes a teacher fall into one of four categories: Highly effective, effec tive, needs improvement or unsatisfactory. Where districts set the performance lev els for each of the categories ... is up to the school district, said Kathy Hebda, chief of staff at the Department of Education. At the time the report was released by the FDOE, evaluations havent been completed or submitted to the department for 13.7 per cent of classroom teachers statewide and 6 percent locally. Those numbers will be added when the report is updated in January or when its finalized in March. Evaluation data was also released Tuesday for school administrators and non-classroom instructional personnel. Out of Columbias 30 school administrators, 100 percent scored effective, based on the FDOE report. Not a single administrator needed improvement or seemed unsatisfactory. Across the state, no administrators ranked unsatisfactory, but 2.6 percent were said to need improvement. SCORES Continued From 1A The News Service of Florida contributed to this report.

BY EMAIL: A tough blow for everybody TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1619, settlers from Bristol, England, arrived at Berkeley Hundred in present-day Charles City County, Va. In 1783, Gen. George Washington bade farewell to his Continental Army officers at Fraunces Tavern in New York, telling them, “With a heart full of love and gratitude I now take leave of you.” In 1816, James Monroe of Virginia was elected the fifth president of the United States. In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson left Washington on a trip to France to attend the Versailles (vehr-SY’) Peace Conference. In 1942, U.S. bombers struck the Italian mainland for the first time in World War II. President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the dismantling of the Works Progress Administration, which had been created to provide jobs during the Depression. In 1965, the United States launched Gemini 7 with Air Force Lt. Col. Frank Borman and Navy Cmdr. James A. Lovell aboard. Union monument should be placed near Confederate ones To the Editor:I am a great-great grandson of Captain Corkran, who was a block-ade runner for the Confederates. I believe the Union monu-ment should be placed near the Confederate ones at the Olustee Battlefield for three reasons: Remembrance, Reflection and Reconciliation. Remembrance of the names of the Union outfits who fought at the battlefield on February 20, 1864. They came from far away to shed their American blood for what they thought was a just cause. We live in an unusual country. Many US Civil War battlefields have monu-ments honoring both the Union and the Confederate armies who fought there. Other countries that have had civil wars rarely erect monu-ments to the losing side and the winning side on the same battlefield of their civil wars, but America is different. We are placing a monu-ment dedicated to the North on a battlefield in the land of the South that already has monuments dedi-cated to the South. Next, Reflection. The monument location and words should reflect upon the his-torical, political and strategic impor-tance of the battle so nobly fought at Olustee. Why did the North come here? Why did they fight? What can we learn from the monument? Finally, the monument should further help to bring about Reconciliation. When people see the Union monument and read the inscriptions on it they should get a sense of closure and healing from the turmoil. It is hoped that the monument location and its words will inspire the reader to have a greater understand-ing of the Battle of Olustee and a determination to reconcile differ-ences of opinion in the bonds of neighborly love and forgiveness. II Corinthians 5:18 and 19 says, “18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of recon-ciliation.” Kenny MerrikenLake City Congress briefly drops by the national capital D on’t blink or you may miss it, but Congress is making a brief reap-pearance in the nation’s capital before knocking off until next year. The House returned Monday but plans to go back home on Friday, Dec. 13. The Senate comes back next Monday, Dec. 9, and plans to stay in town for a decent interval until the leadership decides it’s OK for the senators to go home too. That means the two chambers will be in session simultaneously for only a week. It’s only impor-tant if the House and Senate enact something that they both need to agree on but in a year characterized by vigorous inaction that seems increasingly unlikely. The House has been in session 142 days so far this year; the Senate, 142. In 2011, hardly a year characterized by hyperactivity, the House met for 175 days, the Senate for 170. According to THOMAS, the congressional legislative tracking service, Congress has enacted only 52 news laws since January. In the same period, the previous Congress passed 284 laws, accord-ing to another tracking service, GovTrack. The GOP’s tea party wing says this record of inaction is something to be proud of, that the government does too much. (Perhaps we missed it, but we don’t recall anyone cam-paigning on the slogan, “If elected, I will only go to Washington to col-lect my paycheck.”) It’s not as if Congress has nothing to do. Funding for a new farm bill and food stamps remains unpassed; so, too, does an exten-sion of unemployment benefits. Unless Congress acts this month, physicians’ payments under Medicare could be cut by 24 per-cent, likely causing many of them to pull out of the program. After forty-some attempts, the House appears to have given up on repealing the Affordable Care Act. Instead, intent on throwing President Obama’s words back in his face, House Republicans have introduced the Keep Your Health Plan Act but even if it passed the Senate -unlikely -the GOP prob-ably waited too long with the ACA set to take full effect Jan. 1. And, oh yes, there’s the really important business of government. Republican budget negotiator Rep. Tom Cole, Okla., told ABC Sunday the most important priority “is get-ting a budget deal and making sure we don’t default when the debt ceil-ing comes around.” Failure to act on either one could result in a government shutdown -as early as Jan. 15 when a measure temporarily extending government funding expires. Cole’s assessment is hopeful evidence that a com-mon sense wing still exists among House Republicans. Blink, however, and you could have missed it. C onsidering the state of the global fertilizer market in recent months, news of layoffs at PotashCorp White Springs didn’t come as a complete shock Tuesday. Still, it’s a stunning blow, and not just to those directly affected. The loss of 350 jobs will impact all of us in the Suwannee River Valley, as the eco-nomic ripples spread from White Springs outward. The timing couldn’t be worse, with the holidays upon us. To cushion the blow, PotashCorp guaranteed the 250 laid off Tuesday (the remaining layoffs are scheduled for next year) full time pay through Feb. 2 with severance packages to follow the following day. It’s a kind and generous gesture.We’ve seen worse economic troubles than this, and we’ll get through it, all of us together. Still, let’s keep those hit hardest in our thoughts and prayers in the coming months. Q Associated Press LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:Early childhood educators or “daycare workers” as we are usu-ally referred to, have one of the most rewarding and difficult jobs that there is. We are responsible for the learning, safety and general well-being of your child. While many people think that kids don’t really start learning until they are in pre-k, the first three years of a child’s life are actually their most formative. If you spend the day speaking baby talk to your little one, you are denying him or her valuable language lessons and even though your baby may not be able to talk he or she can still learn from you. Early childhood educa-tion will not only make children bet-ter communicators at an early age but also give them better learning skills that can help them through-out their lives. In fact, a good early childhood education can result in a higher level of education later in life. There is increasing evidence that children gain a lot from going to preschool. At preschool they become exposed to numbers, letters and shapes. And more important they learn how to social-ize. Children can benefit from the chance to socialize and interact with other children, which they may not get to do as often or at all when a babysitter or relative cares for them at home. Quality daycare and pre-k centers are geared to give your child a jumpstart to learning. They include a nice mix of activities during they day to teach different skills, chil-dren are not just playing all day, they are learning new things. Most have standards in place to prepare your child for kindergarten, so that your child is ready to learn on the first day of school.

M a r y G o d d e y n e A R N P E l i z a b e t h K a t h y N e w m a n A R N P M i n e s h P a t e l M D M E D I P L E X One of the more common inju ries to any athlete is a sprained ankle. The most common type of sprained ankle is the lateral ankle sprain. You may have heard a sports commentator talk about a football player rolling his ankle as the This usually occurs when the player quickly changes direc tion and the bones of his lower leg roll over the outer edge of his ankle. A sprain is a tear of a liga ment that connects bone to bone. In the case of a lateral ankle sprain, any one or more of several ligaments on the outside of your ankle could be sprained. Unfortunately, sprains can take a very long time to heal. The most severe sprains, Grade III, require surgery as a complete tear has occurred. Thankfully, most lateral ankle sprains fall into the Grade I or II category, which can heal without surgery, but will require some form of profes sional rehabilitation. If you have suffered a lateral ankle sprain, you are more likely to suffer another one as the liga ments never heal back to their original strength. A good physical therapist knows how to treat your ankle pain without using potentially harmful prescription medica tions, and can help you safely return to your active lifestyle. A relatively new therapy utilized in professional sports and available at Pro Motion Therapy is cold laser, a non-invasive and pain-reliev ing treatment shown to help maximize and speed ligament healing. If you suffer any sprain, or have suffered one and continue to have problems, give us a call. Our business is putting you back in motion. Lateral Ankle Sprain By: Brian Sganga Baya East 780 SE Baya Dr. 386.755.6677 Baya West 1465 W. US Hwy. 90 386.755.2233 Dear Pharmacist, I dread holiday meals. Theres so much great food, and its so hard to resist. Is there any good news in the midst of this orgy of over-indulgence? A.F. Denver, Colorado Answer: Yes, the spices of the holiday season are good for you, but rule num ber one is resist that urge to overeat! Instead, con centrate on really enjoying foods that are healthy for you and limit your sweet, high-calorie indulgences to just a few. Im not going to tell you that you cant have a piece of pumpkin pie. Im not an ogre, after all. Have just one piece, though, not half a pie! Lets take a closer look at that pumpkin pie, because the squash-like vegetable boasts a treasure trove of nutrients, including betacarotene, a powerful eyeloving nutrient. And cinna mon, the spice that makes the pie smell so wonderful, packs such a good-for-you punch that we could easily classify it as a healing herb. Lets focus on cinnamon now. Researchers have long known about its antimicrobial properties, but in recent years several sci entific studies have shown that it can have a positive impact on blood sugar. Yep! Thats right. If you have either pre-diabetes or diabetes, cinnamon is so helpful that you should consider adding it to your diet more frequently (in pill form, not the pie!) In a 2007 Swedish study, participants were given either plain rice pudding or rice pudding containing cinnamon. Researchers found that the blood sugar response in those receiving the cinnamon-laced pud ding was lower and their gastric emptying time was delayed. So the pud ding basically stayed with them longer and it did not spike their blood sugar. Delish! Quite a few studies show that cinnamon helps with blood sugar, actually. I just like this one because it really shows that includ ing cinnamon with a sweet treat helps your body deal with it better. Research has also shown that cinnamon reduces inflammation, eases digestion and pro tects your cells from free radical assault. Other savory benefits include its ability to reduce choles terol and blood pressure. Whether you take cin namon as a supplement or not, do keep a shaker of this spice on hand in your kitchen and challenge yourself to find new ways to use it. Everyone knows its good on apple sauce, but its also perfect on sliced bananas, peaches, papaya and pears. Put it on top of hot cereal, a handful of walnuts, black currants, raisins or apricots. Hot, mulled cider is a special holiday treat and easy to make. Pour a big bottle of apple cider into a pan with a few sticks of cinnamon (broken into 1 inch pieces) along with one-quarter teaspoon nutmeg and about five to eight whole cloves. Simmer the liquid gen tly for at least 5 minutes before straining it. Let the sipping begin. Yum!

Editors note: With the holidays just around the corner, we decided to rerun a column on holiday meals. Enjoy! Pa. museum tells blind visitors: Please touch! By KATHY MATHESON Associated Press PHILADELPHIA Angel Ayala has never been a big fan of museums. Blind since birth, the high school student says the exhibits are so sight-dependent that he cant enjoy them. But hes making an exception for the Penn Museum, an archaeology and anthro pology center that offers touch tours for the blind and visually impaired. Ayala can now feel the eroded limestone of an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus and the intricate hieroglyphs on the statue of a pharaoh. When I touch things, its my version of a sighted persons eyes. It tells me way more than a person describing it would ever, Ayala said. The institution, which is part of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, began offering the tours last year in an effort to make their extensive collections more accessible. Museums should serve the community at large, and that includes the unsighted as well as the sighted, said program coordinator Trish Maunder. Just because a person has low vision or cant see, doesnt mean that theyre not completely interested in culture or learning about ancient artifacts, Maunder said. Most major U.S. metro areas have at least one museum that offers some type of hands-on experience, from touching objects with bare hands or gloves to feeling replicas, according to Art Beyond Sight, a group that makes visual culture accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Such accommodations began well before the Americans with Disabilities Act and have increased as museums have transformed from institutions that house objects to institutions that work with audiences, said Nina Levent, execu tive director of the New York-based art organization. Museums that dont offer tactile tours often have personal or audio guides for the blind. But Levent contends that developing touch components can benefit a wide range of visitors, including childrens groups and students with learning disabilities. Id be hard-pressed to think of an audi ence that does not want to touch, Levent said. The Penn Museum has held hands-on tours twice each Monday when the building is otherwise closed for the past two fall seasons. Ayalas recent visit came during a field trip with about a dozen classmates from the Overbrook School for the Blind. The students got to feel a quartzite likeness of Ramesses II, a black basalt statue of the goddess Sakhmet and two stone coffins. Smaller reproductions of the pharaoh and deity were available for those not tall enough to touch the tops of the statues. Students sanitized their hands before feeling the pieces, which were pre-select ed by conservators. Though thousands of years old, the artifacts shouldnt be dam aged by clean fingers and a light touch, Maunder said. Overall, the museum is engaging with nearly 250 blind or visually impaired people this fall, up about 32 percent from last year, Maunder said. Educators are already planning next seasons curricu lum on ancient Rome. Obama reveals $100M HIV research By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer President Barack Obama announced a new initiative at the National Institutes of Health in pursuit of a cure for HIV, saying his administra tion is redirecting $100 mil lion into the project to find a new generation of therapies. The United States should be at the forefront of new discoveries into how to put HIV into long-term remission without requiring lifelong therapies, or better yet, eliminate it completely, Obama said. Obama made the announcement Monday at a White House event marking World AIDS Day, which was Sunday and as health lead ers and philanthropists gath ered in Washington to deter mine how to replenish the major global health fund that combats AIDS and two of the worlds other leading killers in low-income countries. Obama pledged that the U.S. would contribute up to $5 billion over the next three years to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria as long as other coun tries do their part and con tribute $10 billion. The U.S. matches contributions to the Geneva-based Global Fund on a 1-to-2 funding ratio set by Congress. Dont leave our money on the table, Obama said Monday. The Global Fund is trying to raise $15 billion to cover its programs from 2014 to 2016. The fund supports HIV ther apy for more than 5 million people, as well as treatments for tuberculosis and malaria, and the distribution of insec ticide-treated bed nets. Also Monday, billionaire Bill Gates said he planned to nearly double his foun dations contribution to this next round of the Global Fund, to $500 million. Gates had already pledged $300 million, but told a small group of reporters at the National Institutes of Health that he would match an additional $200 million from private sources in an effort to draw in new donors. Were deeply disappoint ed in cuts to the NIHs budget, Gates said. Earlier this year, NIH lost $1.5 billion of its $31 billion budget to automatic spend ing cuts. Investing in research has huge paybacks, Gates said.

DEAR ABBY: I have been with my fiance since 2006. We expected to be married in 2008, but my grandmother died a month before my wedding, and then he was arrested because of charges stemming from a sexual relationship he’d had with a 17-year-old girl he had been counseling. Since then, we have had a daughter, but through it all there has been cheat-ing, drugs, jail, no job, and constant excuses about why our sex life no longer exists. We have also had physical altercations, which he was arrested for. I am no longer happy with this relationship. The only reason I stay is because of our children. I’m only 33 and don’t want to live my life in misery anymore, but I will sacrifice my happiness for my children. I am confused and don’t know what to do. I’m just going through the motions in life. I work full time, coach my son’s soccer team and am living with MS. He does help somewhat, but it would be better if he would get a job. My mother watches my kids while I am working and after they get out of school. He claims because he doesn’t have a driver’s license he can’t get a job. Really? How many people in this world don’t drive and still have a job? Please give me some advice. I have reached my breaking point. — DOING THE BEST I CAN DEAR DOING THE BEST YOU CAN: You say you are willing to sacrifice your happiness with this loser for your children. Why? You are not married to him, and he is emotion-ally neglectful, physically abusive and contributes nothing financially. Admit to yourself that the “romance” has been a mistake, and as soon as it’s safe, get away from him. If he ever finds a job, the state will help you collect child support, but if he doesn’t, you’ll have one less mouth to feed. DEAR ABBY: My mom insists on including my ex-husband and his wife at our family gatherings. I have told her repeatedly that it makes me very uncomfort-able, but she even included them in the gift exchange last Christmas. What should I do? Not go? My sister has already laid a guilt trip on me. Must I go and have Christmas with my ex like we’re one big happy family? (If we had been happy, we would not have gotten divorced.) What are your thoughts on this? — LIVING IN DYSFUNCTION JUNCTION DEAR LIVING: If you and your ex were married for a long time, I can see why your mother might con-sider him still part of the fam-ily and want to include him. However, out of consideration for your feelings, it should be on a limited basis -not every holiday. (Could she be trying to punish you because she blames you for the divorce?) Because it would make you uncomfortable and your mother knows it, make plans to do something you WOULD enjoy -perhaps a trip out of town to be with friends or to a different cli-mate. And please, don’t feel guilty if you do -regardless of what your sister says. DEAR ABBY: What do you say to your only son who can’t even call to tell you he is getting married? He post-ed it on Facebook, and I was notified via a text from my sister. Our relationship isn’t the issue. He just doesn’t seem to be able to use his phone for TALKING. Your thoughts? — OUTSIDE THE LOOP IN OREGON DEAR OUTSIDE THE LOOP: EXPLAIN to him how it made you feel to receive the news the way you did. He owes you an apology. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Take a break and clear your head regarding personal and professional situations that are costing you. Re-address whatever situation you face so you can make a change that will help distance you from anyone causing you grief. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Love, family and gatherings will lift your spirits. Make romantic plans or focus on a creative endeavor that excites you. Your generosity with older friends or relatives will be appreciated and bring you unexpected benefits.
