McDonald has been showing
people how to cook her spe-

than 10 years.
"I think the craft village is a
wonderful part of the park,"
McDonald said. "There's so
many talented people in the
area. They like us to
demonstrate our craft."
McDonald said she was

ings made of brick and mor-

Though the Columbia
High School auditorium is
less than three months
away from completion, it's
already been set up as a
building that could quickly
become a community icon
and landmark.
"The auditorium is going
to give us the opportunity
to have assemblies and
class meetings at Columbia
High School, but most
importantly, it will be a
wonderful place for our
community to have meet-
ings in support of the CHS
students," said Joann
Chamberlin, Columbia
High School principal.
Columbia High has been
in existence at its current
campus since the 1975-76
school year, but has never
had an auditorium.

now Richardson Middle
School, had one and still
has one," said Mike

administration. "Not having

Once completed,
Chamberlin said the build-
ing will be used for a variety
of purposes.
"Besides the opportunity
of an audlii'.'ium which will
hold about 525 seats,
there's an opportunity for
us to increase the seating
capacity for the auditori-
um," she said. 'There's also
an opportunity for us to use
the back portion of the
building as a multi-purpose
area. That will give us the
opportunity for dance les-
sons, cheerleading prac-

wrestling matches, possibly
physical education (space),

auditorium, it will also have

least two other events can

day of the school year for

The 13-year-old, who lives in
Jennings, lent her soprano voice to
entertain shoppers Saturday after-

by Hurricane Katrina.
Greta, who is a native of
Lithuania, has been performing at

Dean: War is winnable with a new plan

AP Political Writer
Republicans released an ad
saying Democrats' plan for
Iraq is "retreat and defeat,"
Democratic National
Chairman Howard Dean said
clearly Friday that the war is
"We can and we must win
the war on terror," Dean told
attendees at the Florida
Democratic Party convention.
"A smarter, more honest strat-
egy that respects our troops
and our military leaders is
possible. And I believe our
course is far more likely to
defeat terror than the Bush
administration's failed policy
in Iraq."
Dean called for bringing
home all 50,000 National
Guard troops stationed in Iraq
within six months, redeploy-
ing 20,000 troops from Iraq to
Afghanistan and assigning
several thousand anti-terror
troops in countries around

"Strategic redeployment
addresses a broader battle
against global terrorist net-
works. We need to re-engage
our allies and a military
realignment of our troops will
make our forces stronger and
save American lives," Dean
His remarks came as
Republicans continued to criti-

States can't win the war. Dean

were taken out of context and
that he meant the war was not

an enthusiastic crowd, many
of whom said they agreed

Judge sends

wrong message

about parents

and alcohol
A Lake City woman pled
guilty to providing alcohol
to her teenage daughter
and got a slap on the wrist
last week. The sentence
was too light for the crime and is more
evidence of weaknesses in our criminal
justice system. /
The courts failed us.
Jacqueline Sund pled guilty to the
misdemeanor charge, was given a
30-day suspended sentence plus.
75 hours of community service to be
completed within the next five months.
She also was placed on six months
supervised probation.
Sund admitted giving alcohol to her
teenage daughter, Cassie, on her
18th birthday. The girl died early the
next morning as a passenger in a
terrible alcohol-related car crash on
June 17 in rural Columbia County.
Her friend Ricky Goodman was at the
wheel and also was killed.
The scenario is terribly tragic from
many angles and we express our
sorrow and sympathy to the families
of both victims. The incident was a
terrible blow to our community. It
apparently was not a wake-up call for
our court system.
The justice system should not allow
emotions to color penalties. The law
should be followed and the punishment
should at least remotely match the
charge. And the charge should match
the crime.
Granted, the mother lost her
daughter and will face a life sentence of
pain and remorse, but what message
does it send to others who might
consider buying alcohol for underage
On paper, Sund's mild reprimand
doesn't look like much to risk for the
purchase of a six-pack or a bottle of
liquor for some eager teens looking for
a good time. We all know otherwise.
Purchasing alcohol for teenagers is
not a joke. It's a serious offense that can
have life-changing consequences. Our
court system should take notice.

Today is Sunday, Dec. 11, the 345th
day of 2005. There are 20 days left in
the year.
m In 1872, America's first black
governor took office as Pinckney Benton
Stewart Pinchback became acting

Outdoors heritage
jeopardized by FWC
I never realized the
jeopardy our hunting and
fishing heritage is really in
until I read Raymond R.
Hamlin Jr.'s recently
published book, "A Wake Up
Call to Florida's Hunters and
This book exposes
questionable practices of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife

Commission, which is
apparently motivated by
political gain and revenues to
the agency.
This is detrimental to the
well being of our fish and
wildlife and the people right to
partake of these renewable
Reading this book leads me
to believe without a doubt that
hunters and fishermen should
quit criticizing each other and
unite in putting pressure on
the legislature, which is the

only governmental entity that
has the means to protect the
people from this unscrupulous
state agency. The legislature
approves the FWC's budget,
our right to hunt and fish, and
consequently benefiting from
our fish and wildlife will be
greatly reduced or eventually
lost completely.
This book can be obtained
at most local gun, bait and
tackle shops.

Thank you

to those

who give

for others

Y ogi Berra, the former New York
Yankees great who is known for
his way with words, either said
or should have said, "You can
observe a whole lot just by
looking." After spending two hours late
Friday ringing ,
the Salvation
Army bell at
the Lake City
Wal-Mart, I've
concluded that
Yogi was right ._
My stint Michael Leonard
wearing the P0417
red apron and Phone:(386) 754-0417
tinkling the
bell was from 4-6 p.m. It was a busy time as
people getting off work for the week popped
in for an item or two on their way home and
others, taking the afternoon off, got busy
with their Christmas shopping. Traffic past
my red collection kettle was steady.
I almost didn't make my appointment with
the apron, bell and kettle. Wednesday and
Thursday found me sick with some version
of the bronchitis that had laid my children
low, and I was just beginning to feel better
Friday. Someone had to ring that bell,,
though. My fellow Rotarians were counting
on me, and 4-6 p.m. was my time. So, stoked
up with Alka Seltzer Plus and menthol
throat lozenges, away I went.
Like so many other things in life,
something I was not looking forward to
turned out to be a blessing.
What I observed is that people from all
walks of life in our fair part of the world are
generous. In my two hours, I learned that:
Elvis lives! I saw him walk past with his
jet black hair and pointed long sideburns
several times. And on more than one
occasion, he placed some coins and dollar
bills in the collection kettle. "Thank you.
Thank you very much." Elvis was generous.
Conway Twitty is still around, too. He
came strutting up with that pompadour
hairstyle kept in place with enough
Brylcreme to start a '50s reunion.
Fortunately, instead of looking at me and
growling his famous, "Hello, darlin',"
greeting, he said, "Merry Christmas," and
put some cash in the kettle. Conway was
A Loretta Lynn look-alike came by as
well. She was standing by her man as they
struggled out with armloads of presents for
the gaggle of grandkids trailing behind.
Loretta gave each grandchild a handful of
coins for the Salvation Army Christmas
bucket and one by one, those coins dropped
in to buy gifts for the less fortunate. Yes,
Loretta was generous.
Women came by, dressed to the nines and
looking oh, so fine. Why they were so
dolled up to go shopping I don't know. But
they were generous.
Day workers walked up in their laboring
clothes. Dust and mud discolored their
feature-f but didn't cloud their hearts. They
were generous.
Lawyers and doctors came by in their
Gucci shoes and Armani suits. Underneath
their clothes of distinction beat hearts of
compassion. They, too were generous.
And I observed that people will say
anything so long as it's printed on a T shirt
... and I do mean anything. But they were
People from all walks of life put dollars
and loose change into the Salvation Army
It was heartwarming to watch as older
ladies pulled rolled up dollar bills from their
purses and stuffed them down through the
collection slots. Equally gratifying was
watching young folks wearing funky clothes
and sporting purple hair plop money into
the bucket.
We are fortunate in North Florida to have
folks who willingly give so that others less
fortunate can share in the spirit and love of
Yogi Berra's most famous malaprop is
probably this one. Yogi told an interviewer
once: "When you come to a fork in the road,
take it."
I'm glad that when so many people came
to the fork in the entranceway that led to or
around the Salvation Army kettle Friday

afternoon, they took the one leading to the

ACLU sues Polk County

in free-speech zone rules

Associated Press

American Civil Liberties
Union and two co-plaintiffs
are suing Polk County, alleg-
ing that a $500,000 liability
insurance requirement for
exhibiting in its "free-speech
zone" is unconstitutional.
The zone was created
after a church group erected
a manger scene outside a
county building in Bartow
last December without per-
mission. Within several
days, other items were
placed on the lawn, includ-
ing a sign celebrating
"Festivus," the holiday made
famous by the television

comedy "Seinfeld."
Polk officials then deter-
mined that potential
exhibitors had to be
approved by the county
attorney, have liability insur-
ance and agree not to hold
the county liable.
The ACLU argues the
rules are unconstitutionally
exclusionary in a lawsuit
filed Friday in Tampa federal
"The problem is really
very simple. In creating
essentially a public forum,
Polk County opened that
area for free speech for all of
its residents," said Mike
Pheneger, chairman of the

Greater Tampa chapter of
the ACLU of Florida.

Polk officials say the rules
were necessary to protect
the county from liability, and
they say courts have been
inconsistent in setting prece-

insurance is acceptable.

subject," County Attorney
Joe Jarret said. "If it were,

officer killed

Associated Press

NEW YORK - An off-duty
police officer was killed
Saturday in ,a gunfight with
two burglars outside his
home, and authorities said an
actor from 'The Sopranos"
was a suspect.
Daniel Enchautegui, 28, a
three-year veteran, was
pronounced dead at a hospital
following the 5:15 a.m. shoot-
ing, said Police Commissioner
Ray Kelly.
He was the second officer
to die in the line of duty in two
"This is a loss to the depart-
ment and the city," said Mayor
Michael Bloomberg, who
joined Kelly at the hospital.
'We now have another life to
mourn, taken from us for no
sensible reason."
The officer had returned to
his Bronx home after finish-
ing a late shift when he heard
breaking glass in an unoccu-
pied house next door, Kelly
said. The officer first called
his landlord, then called 911
to report a possible burglary.
The officer grabbed his off-
duty weapon and went outside
to investigate. His landlord
heard Enchautegui shout,
"Police! Don't move!",
followed by the sound of
gunfire, Kelly said. "
The officer was struck once
in the chest with a bullet from
a .357-caliber revolver. Before
collapsing in the driveway of
the home, he returned fire and
struck both of the.
suspects - one was hit twice,
the other four times.
One of the suspects was
identified by police as Lillo
Brancato Jr., an actor who also
appeared 4in several episodes
of "The Sopranos" as Matt
Bevilacqua, a mob wannabe
who eventually was murdered.
He made his debut in the
Robert De Niro-directed film
"A Bronx Tale" back in 1993.

BEIJING - China on
Saturday blamed a deadly con-
frontation between authorities
and demonstrators in a village
near Hong Kong on "a few
instigators" who organized an
attack on a wind power plant,
prompting police to open fire.
China said in its first official
comments on Tuesday's con-
frontation that three villagers
were killed. Residents, howev-
er, said as many as 20 people
were killed.
The state-run Xinhua News
Agency said police opened fire
on villagers in Dongzhou, a vil-
lage in Guangdong province,
after a mob formed a blockade
on the road and began throw-
ing explosives at officers.
Three villagers were killed and
eight were wounded, Xinhua
said, quoting the Information
Office of the neighboring city
of Shanwei.

However, residents told The
Associated Press that as many
as 20 people were killed when
police opened fire on a crowd
of thousands protesting
against inadequate compensa-
tion offered by the govern-
ment for land to be used for the
new power plant. Villagers said
dozens of people were missing.
A Hong Kong newspaper
quoted villagers accusing
Chinese officials of trying to
cover up the killings.
It was the deadliest known
use of force by Chinese
authorities against civilians
since security troops opened
fire on pro-democracy demon-
strators at Beijing's
Tiananmen Square in 1989,
killing hundreds and perhaps
thousands. Although police
often use tear gas and trun-
cheons to disperse demonstra-
tors, it is extremely rare for
them to fire into a crowd.
The clash in Dongzhou also
marked an escalation in social

protests that have convulsed
the Chinese countryside about
land seizures for factories,
power plants, shopping malls
and other projects. Farmers
often say they are paid too lit-
tle and some accuse officials of
stealing compensation money.
Authorities called the
assault by villagers "a serious
violation of the law" and said a
special group was formed to
investigate the incident,
Xinhua said.
Before the fatal attack,
police used tear gas to break
up a mob of about 170 vil-
lagers armed with knives,
steel spears, sticks and explo-
sives, Xinhua said. Two
villagers were arrested.
The report said the instiga-
tors then formed a mob of
300 villagers to blockade a
road leading to a neighboring
village to force police to
release the suspects. Police
opened fire after the villagers
began to throw explosives at

were trying to cover up the
killings by offering families
money to give up the bodies
of the dead.

Fort White town council

meets Monday night

Fort While has several items
on the agenda for its town
council meeting at 7:30 p.m.
Monday night.
One item is an amended
ordinance for the Deese Land
Annexation Ordinance that is
important to the town because
it clears the way for an inde-
pendent grocery store to be
Due error in the docu-
ment, the ordinance needed to
be amended.
'The property description
was incorrect and by law there
has to be a second reading,"
said Fort White Assistant
Town Clerk Kellie Anderson.
"It doesn't have to go to the
paper, that has already been
done. This is just a second
reading, the next step is for it
to be passed and adopted,"
Anderson said.

A first read of the amended
ordinance 129-05A was at the
Nov. 14 town council meeting.
There is also an ordinance
that would make changes to
the way the council members
and mayor are elected.
'The 131 ordinance is a pre-
liminary draft of an ordinance
to change the Fort White char-
ter to provide for four-year
terms, staggered," Anderson
The changes would make
elections for council seats in
Districts 1 and 3 in different
years than council seats in
Districts 2 and 4 "so you're not
electing a whole council in one
year," Anderson said.
The council members cur-
rently representing the four
districts in Fort White are
Donald Cook, District 1; Henry
Maini, District 2; John
Gloskowski, District 3; and
Demetric Jackson, District 4.

Clifford Smith said Friday
that 1st Lt. Kevin J. Smith, 28,

Smith died within 30 sec-

Georgianna Stephens-Smith.
The bomb tore a hole in the
Humvee and caused massive
injury to his right shoulder
and upper body, she ,s4id.
"His last words were: 'Lopk

Smith, a West Point gradu-
ate, was assigned to the 1st
Battalion, 76th Field Artillery,\
4th. Brigade Combat Teamy,
3rd Infantry Division, based
out of Fort Stewart, Ga.

Charter Review Commission meets Tuesday

tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn
The Columbia County
Charter has been the county's
guiding document for local
government for nearly two
First approved by local vot-
ers in the November 2002 gen-
eral election and becoming
county legislation in January
2003, the charter has changed
the duties of several elected
and appointed officials.
During the Columbia
County Charter Review

Commission meeting, which
will take place at 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday at the Old Welcome
Center, Northwest Hall of
Fame Drive, local officials are
expected to tell the board how
the charter affects their jobs
and duties.
According to the meeting's
agenda, guest speakers for the
meeting will include Lake City
City Manager, Joe Cone; Lake
City Police Department Chief
of Police, David Allbritton;
Lake City Mayor Stephen Witt
and Lake City/Columbia
County Chamber of

Commerce and Industrial
Development Authority
executive director Jim Poole.
The guest speakers will
describe their roles and
responsibilities and also how
the Columbia County Charter
has changed their jobs and the
work they do.
Since the charter review
commission is in charge of
suggesting changes and
amendments that would need
to be made to the charter, they
have asked the guest speakers
to suggest changes that would
help facilitate their jobs and

duties, as well as document
language that should be kept.
Following the presentations
by the guest speakers, charter
review commission members
are expected to discuss the
charter and its articles.
Wayne Sapp, charter review
commission chairman, said he
encourages the public to
attend the Feb. 7 meeting
because the charter review
commission will discuss issues
and topics relevant to the char-
ter and the board is also look-
ing for public input during that

Family, friends mourn death of slain 13-year-old

Associated Press

TAMPA - Family and
friends of a 13-year-old boy
found slain at a park near his
home cried behind crime
scene tape, recalling memo-
ries of the cheery, friendly
Stephen Donald Tomlinson
will never again ride his bike
and skateboard around his
north Tampa neighborhood,

or play Pokemon, they said.
He will never fulfill his young
dreams of becoming a lawyer
or engineer.
"Stephen was a great kid,
an all-round great kid," said
his father, Ron Tomlinson,
45. 'There was nobody that
didn't love Stephen."
Ron Tomlinson had warned
his son to avoid the park
because he feared the

neighborhood was getting
dangerous because of crime.
Stephen, a seventh-grader
at Davidsen Middle School,
was found dead about
7:40 p.m. Thursday in the
park two blocks from his
house with trauma to his
upper body. Witnesses said he
was beaten and bloody.
Stephen's aunt, Phyllis
Gardner of Wesley Chapel,

said her nephew had been
seen hanging out with a
19-year-old outside the family
home that evening.
'The next thing we knew,
(the man) was coming out of
the park and Stevie was
dead," Gardner said. "I don't
know why a 19-year-old boy
would be playing with a
13-year-old boy."

Ten-year-old Travius

'We're real proud of it, this
was a very good investment
on the city's part. Very
suitable for our needs."
The city paid $1.2 million for
the building and invested
another $160,000, officials said.

on a wall in the city council
room by local artist Kelli
The mural was part of a

project coordinated by Jodi
Witt, wife of Lake City Mayor
Stephen Witt.
The council member room
originally had an exterior wall
window. That window posed a
decorating problem once city
officials had an interior wall
placed against it.
'The exterior wall is all

the wall," Witt said.

"We're really looking at the
end of February and occupy-
ing it at the beginning of
March," Null said.
After more than a year of
planning and several addition-
al months of construction, the
building is nearly finished.
"The construction began
November 2004 and the actual
design phase began
November 2003," Null said.
The building will be able to
seat 1,121 people, . which
includes 567 lecture seats with
folding arms and 554 fold-up
bleacher seats.
Null said the building has
fixed seating, which was
included in the contract, as
well as the stage curtains,
lighting and sound system.
"One of the things that we
are proud about is that the
stage portion of the building
will have backdrops, dressing
rooms, bathrooms and a state-
of-the-art lighting and sound
system," Millikin said.
The base bid for the project
was estimated at $3.5 million
and was based on a
19,000-square-foot auditori-
um/multi-purpose building,
with a 120-foot covered walk-
way leading from the school
and an access road. However
the project, which included
work in the gymnasium, is
expected to be completed for
just more than $4 million.
According to reports, the
money for the project comes
from the school district's local
tax levy.:
A year's worth of tax levy
from local property tax is
roughly. $2.5 million and the
building's construction will be
funded through the school
district's 2-mill local tax levy.

Construction workers walk along scaffolding in the entryway to the
new Columbia High School auditorium.

Millikin said the school
district has been planning to
add an auditorium for several
"When I took this job as
assistant superintendent sever-
al years ago, it was already in
our work plan to build a multi-
purpose building," he said. "In
consultation with (school)
board members and district
administrators, we were able to
come up with some one-time
funds to pledge to the con-
struction of an auditorium and
multi-purpose building com-
bined. It's basically been a
three-year project."
Chamberlin also noted the
importance of the school
getting an auditorium.
"I think it's been the desire
of the district office and cer-
tainly the community, as large
as we are, to see the need for
an auditorium," she said.
"What greater service can
Columbia High School and
our district office offer, that
we can house an auditorium

and put it to good use."
Millikin said school officials
will decide who uses the
building for public events.
"Obviously the building is
something we're very proud
of and it will have the largest
seating capacity of any audito-
rium in the county," he said.
"We need to convene a com-
mittee of school officials to
draw-up some guidelines on
its use. We want to make it
available to the community,
but at the same time, this audi-
torium is physically located on
a school campus, as opposed
to the county office complex
auditorium downtown. One of
our concerns is we need to
train our staff in the operation
of the lighting and the sound
systems before we make it
available to the general public.
"I hope community groups
will understand that due to the
complex nature of this opera-
tion, school system personnel
will have to be involved in the
use of this facility."

USC back takes
trophy in landslide
over Young, Leinart.
Associated Press
NEW YORK - Reggie
Bush left the competition far,
far behind - as usual.
Southern California's incom-
parable junior tailback won the

Heisman Trophy as college
football's best player in a land-
slide Saturday night over Texas
quarterback Vince Young and
USC quarterback Matt Leinart,
last year's winner.
Flashing uncanny accelera-
tion and ability to change
direction, Bush has conjured
up memories of Gale Sayers,
drawn comparisons to
Marshall Faulk, Barry
Sanders and Tony Dorsett,

and is the favorite to be the
No. 1 pick in April's NFL draft.
"Oh man, this is amazing,"
Bush said, a row of former
winners lining the stage
behind him. "It's truly an
honor to be elected to this fra-
ternity. I've been in college for
three years and it's the first

what he had done not just this
season, but also in years past.
In keeping with the theme
that the Indians team was
greater as a whole than the
sum of their parts, coaches
said they found it extremely

contributions to the success of
the team.
Donald Lewis earned Most

of the Year honors after set-
ting a school record with
1,109 yards rushing on
182 carries and scoring a
team-high eight touchdowns.
In presenting the honor, Fort
White offensive coordinator
Kenny Burt talked about how
Lewis was just as deadly as a
blocker as he had been run-
ning the football - another
example of the unselfishness
of this Indians team.
"It feels good," Lewis said.
"I still dedicate it to my offen-
sive line and to my teammates.

Lemieux will not play

for Canada in Olympics

Associated Press

owner-captain Mario Lemieux
will not play for the Canadian
Olympic hockey team, saying
it's better to go with "young
The 40-year-old Hall of
Famer informed Team
Canada executive director
Wayne Gretzky a couple days
ago, the Penguins said on
their Web site Saturday.
"I told him that I would
pass on the Olympics,"
Lemieux said. "With the way I
have been playing so far and
with the young guys we have
coming up in Canada, I think
the best thing to do is to go
with the young guys, the
young legs."
Lemieux was diagnosed
with atrial fibrillation after
being admitted to the hospital
Wednesday with a rapid
heartbeat. The condition is
commonly treated with med-
ication and is not expected to
end his career or alter his life.
'The symptoms are fatigue
and sluggishness all the time,
which I was on the ice, and
not being able to have any
jump," he said.
But he said he's feeling bet-
ter since he started taking

medication. He hopes to be
skating soon, though he does-
n't have a target date for his
return to the lineup. He will
undergo a stress test Monday.
"Hopefully, by next week, I
will be able to get back on the
ice and start skating again,"
he said. "Hopefully, the soon-
er, the better."
Lemieux mentioned team-
mate Sidney Crosby, Ottawa
Senators forward Jason

Spezza and Carolina
Hurricanes forward Eric Staal
as potential Olympians. None
was invited to the Olympic
camp in August in preparation
for the Turin Games, which
begin Feb. 10.
"I think it's time for these
guys to step up and they
deserve to be on the team,"
said Lemieux, who has seven
goals and 14 assists in 25
games this season.
Lemieux, playing despite a
serious hip injury, was the
captain of the 2002 Canadian
team that beat the United
States in the gold-medal game
at Salt Lake City. It was
Canada's first Olympic men's
hockey title in 50 years.
"I enjoyed playing in the
2002 Olympics, especially
winning the gold," he said. "It
was a great experience and I
would've loved to be there
this year, but considering my
play-so far, the way I've been
feeling and some of the young
guys we have for Team
Canada, I think it's much bet-
ter to go that route."
Lemieux is the second
Team Canada veteran in less
than a week to withdraw his
name. Red Wings captain
Steve Yzerman, who's also 40,
pulled out Tuesday.

Jags try to end Indy's run

Associated Press
last 12-0 team that came to the
Sunshine State left with a loss.
The Jacksonville Jaguars
hope to make it two in a row
today against the unbeaten
Indianapolis Colts.
'The pressure is more on
them than it is on us," Jags
linebacker Mike Peterson
said. "I'm pretty sure they're
uptight, worrying about their
12-0 record and letting the
division slip away."
If so, the Colts aren't
showing it.
The Colts are one of only
five NFL teams to start 12-0
and are getting flooded with
questions about staying unde-
feated and matching the 1972
Miami Dolphins - the only
team with a perfect season.
Coach Tony Dungy told his
players to focus on short-term
goals and let others worry
about Indy's quest over the
final month to make history.
The Colts already have
secured a playoff spot and can
clinch the division title today.

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback
Terry Cousin (21) breaks up a
pass for Cleveland Browns'
Braylon Edwards in the fourth
quarter of Jacksonville's 20-14
win last week.

They also can earn a first-
round bye and possibly home-
field advantage throughout
the playoffs.
Even if that doesn't happen
against the Jaguars (9-3), it
probably will in the coming
weeks, which has prompted
speculation whether Dungy

will rest his players - and
reduce the risk of injury - or
try to make history.
"We're not going to play a
game to lose no matter who
plays and I don't think you
would say, 'I hope we lose one
because we'll be better off,' "
Dungy said. "We want to win
them all."
Only three teams have
started 13-0: the 1934 Chicago
Bears, the 1972 Dolphins and
the 1998 Denver Broncos.
The Bears were 12-0 in 1985
when they traveled to Miami to
face the Dolphins on Monday
night. Miami won 38-24, an
upset that remains almost as
big 'a part of franchise history
as Miami's perfect season.
For the Jaguars, who have
won five in a row, this will be
one of the biggest regular-sea-
son games in their 11-year his-
tory. They believe they are
"I've been saying all season
that this confidence was com-
ing," Peterson said. "I felt
something special coming. It
was just a matter of time. The
pieces of the puzzle are
slowly piecing together."

Key to Bucs-Panthers is in trenches

Associated Press
False Start, No. 67. It was a
call repeated often - three
times in five plays, actually -
the last time Kenyatta Walker
faced the Carolina Panthers.
Something seems to hap-
pen to Tampa Bay's tackle
every time he lines up across
from Julius Peppers. Walker
gets lured into silly penalties
and careless mistakes, and
Carolina's star defensive end

capitalizes every time.
So if the Bucs (8-4) have
any chance of beating the
Panthers (9-3) in today's key
NFC South matchup, Walker
must get Peppers out of his
Peppers was clearly in
there during the last meeting,
a 34-13 Carolina victory,
when Walker had three false
starts in a span of five plays to
kill a Bucs threat. Walker also
failed to block well in the run-
ning game and yielded two of
Carolina's five sacks, both to

"I can't speak on why he
was false starting or what was
going through his head
because I don't know,"
Peppers said. "Me, I worry
about myself more than I do
trying to get into my
opponent's head.
"If you play well, then even-
tually you'll get in his head,
and if you have success
against them, you will get in
his head. I'm not really into a
bunch of mind games on the
football field."

Get out,


with peers

One of the best
job searching
aids to come out
in the past cou-
ple of decades is
the support group - a
group that meets once a
week to network by sharing
information, contacts, leads,
and success stories.
I used to run a "Monday
Morning Group" that met,
dressed for business, every
Monday at 8 a.m. We met in
a "contributed" church
meeting room and each
person donated a dollar for
coffee and donuts. Every
couple of weeks, we had a
corporate guest and we
were usually back at it by 10
a.m. We got to know each
other and were able to
share valuable information.
and make powerful
Although there are active
support groups meeting
every week, most of that
type of activity has been
taken over by on-line
Internet job search forums,
and there are many.

Westfield Realty Group Owners Charlie Sparks (center, left) and Scott Stewart stand with Westfield Realty Group members and guests during the ribbon cutting ceremony
for Westfield Realty Group.

Westfield Realty opens doors

New real estate group
has already had success
with Village Square.

Westfield Realty Group celebrated
the grand opening of its new offices
Friday on Commerce Boulevard and its
plans to expand business in Lake City.
The new offices will serve as the
headquarters for Westfield Realty
Group, Westfield Investments, Ellianos
Coffee Company, Little Caesars and

United Outdoors Media.
Founded in October by Charlie
Sparks, a 28-year real estate veteran,
and Scott Stewart, a local real estate
developer and busi-
nessman, Westfield-
Realty Group is
another business to
add to their number :'
of successes in Lake g44':
"I've been in the Sparks
real estate business
for about 28 years," said-Sparks, who
serves as president of Westfield Realty
Group. "I had a group of young people

that approached me that wanted to get
involved in the brokerage business."
Stewart agrees that his and Sparks'
past experiences will help in their real
estate services. .
"We've both been
involved in the indus-
try for years now,"
Stewart said. "We
have a lot of expan-
Ssion and develop-
Stewart ment plans coming
up, as well as
commercial and residential buildings."
Westfield Realty Group has 10 real
estate agents, but Sparks said he

anticipates the need for more.
"With 10 associates, we keep pretty
busy, but we can always handle more,"
Sparks said. "I see the group to contin-
ue to grow, where we'll probably have
the need for 12 to 14 associates."
Sparks serves as the sales manager
of the group, and is responsible for the
training of associates. He and Stewart
are co-owners of the group.
Sparks said Westfield Realty Group
provides a service for people 'to help
them buy and sell property.

No Dividends Is OK
Q Why do companies elect to not

Some firms. such as smaller, less-
estabhshed and faster-growing ones,

while Microsoft introduced one only

very attractive because they olTer

Family companies should

postpone chat and

arguments for holidays

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK - Alan Rosen
remembers the holiday meals
that were more like board
meetings ,than family
"It was not fun to have the
family get together and talk
about what you do 70 hours a
week anyway," said Rosen,
who along with his brother
Kevin runs Junior's, his fami-
ly's famed restaurant and
cheesecake business in
Brooklyn, N.Y.
Rosen's father, Walter, and
uncle, Marvin, had inherited
Junior's from their own father
and Walter Rosen was under-
standably passionate -about
the company. When he got
together with
his sons, he "It's so

�He said it was hard at first for
his father to agree, but "he's
made a major transformation.

He's become a better grandfa-
ther, father and a better
business partner."
Talking too much about the
business can also be, a
day-to-day problem in a family.
Murray Gordon, president
of a family-owned long term
care insurance business,
found that work dominated
the conversation in his home
after his son Brian, who lived
at home, joined the company.
At dinner, they weren't just
discussing what happened
that day; Murray Gordon was
also teaching his son about
the business.
The result: "My wife would
go crazy. She'd sit there and
be bored after she prepared
dinner," recalled Gordon,

Harrison returns to the
Columbia County area with
improved credentials to offer
logging and forestry services
in this growing segment of
the local and state economy.
In 2003, timber harvesting in
Columbia County produced a
$203.5 million harvest.
1,149 employees work

sessions with 30 other
loggers. The classes covered
technological innovations in
the logging industry,
environmental management,
the changing wood supply
and demands for more

topics on timber security,
endangered species, planning
for forest harvests, business
finance, wage management,
logging safety, legal affairs
and the latest in

"It's so hard to escape talk-

to set some guidelines," said
Renee Miller, whose husband
began working with her more
than a year ago in her Los

Miller said business is the

Psychologists and other peo-
ple who advise small companies
also say owners should post-
pone talk about the business
when their families are togeth-
er - especially as relatives
gather for the holidays.
'Today's the day for family
-and to enjoy ourselves in our
world," said Tom Davidow, a
Brookline, Mass.-based psy-
chologist whose clients
include family-run businesses.
A more serious problem is

when there is acrimony
among relatives who are also
business partners. Holiday
get-togethers can be down-
right unpleasant. Davidow's
advice is for owners is to put
the dispute aside for the day.
"It' s not fair to their wives,
it's not fair to their kids to have
to bear the burdens of their
disagreements," he said.
Many times, "when they're
arguing about the business,
they're not really arguing
about the business - the busi-
ness is the stage where they're
acting out family dynamics
and issues," Davidow said.
The solution is, again, set it
aside. Or, "don't plan on spend-
ing the whole day together,"
he said.

Westfield Realty Group
serves as the brokerage arm
for Westfield Investments, an
11-year old company involved
in land acquisition, residential
and commercial development.
The group's latest develop-
ment, Village Square, located
on U.S. 90, is a commercial
development that is home to
Moe's, Sassy's of Lake City,

and other commercial busi-
"Village Square is almost
full," Sparks said. "I believe we
have about 22,000 square feet
at that location, and we only
have two spaces left."
Another development,
Branford Crossing, will be
located on State Road 247 and
house commercial businesses
as well.
"We actually just broke

ground on (Branford
Crossing)," Stewart said.
"We'll have between 12,000
and 20,000 square feet in that
location, and it will be very
similar to Village Square."
Other developments include
Stonegate Landing, a retail
office-type strip center, and
Enterprise Park, which will be
located on Branford Highway
and will serve as a 16-acre
commercial park.

on-line forums feature the
same people over and over
again, often spending too
much time on semantics, poli-
tics, and personal prejudices,
and not enough time on try-
ing to help others and
exchange information. It's
like the draw-against-commis-
sion salesperson who has
learned to live on the draw
and really doesn't like selling.
Many of the forum partici-
pants seem more intent on
staying on-line than looking
for a job!
A recent American
Association of Retired
Persons ( article
said that only about 1 percent

of job searchers find jobs via
the Internet, but the Internet
is your best source of infor-
mation about jobs and compa-
nies. Very few people get an
interview for the type of job
they are seeking from a job
search Web site.
You can get company and
job search information via the
Internet, but you can't get vis-
ibility or third-party recom-
mendations. You must get out
of the box and out of the
house, dressed to do busi-
ness, and in a position to meet
people and make impressions.
It is easy and usually free to
get a group started. Check
with your local public library,

Chamber of Commerce,
or church or synagogue for
free meeting rooms.
If you really want to get
hired, you must get visible.
Use the Internet for useful
information and quick com-
munication. Post your resume
if you must, but get up and get
out to meet people, make pos-
itive first impressions, and
Remember, there is noth-
ing more powerful than a
third-party recommendation.

the plants

from cold

your head on
the pillow. As
you enter the
dream world, it
occurs to you that you left
your favorite houseplant
outside or that your favorite
fruit tree or shrub may get
killed by the cold. Will the
frosty weather forecasted
for the night be enough to
get you back out of bed?
If you have a
cold-sensitive plant growing
outdoors, you can provide
some protection on cold
nights by covering it with a
blanket to keep the frost off
the plant. Even so, the
outer leaves may still get
frost damage where they
touch the blanket. Be sure
the blanket goes all the way
to the ground to keep in
any warmth available from
the earth. For those really
cold nights, extra warmth
can be given to the plant by
using Christmas lights or a
heat lamp under the
blanket. It also helps to
water the plant before a
frosty night so the roots do
not dry out.
Fruit trees that are too
big to cover can be
protected to a small extent
by wrapping or covering the
lower trunk. If the top of
the tree dies, the hope is
that a new shoot will grow
from above the graft to start
a new tree. Do not leave the
trunk wrapped more than
two weeks without
unwrapping and inspecting
it for insect damage and
wood rot.
A hearty helping of
mulch around a plant can
offer cold protection as
well. Mulch can help
preserve the roots of some
of the semi-tropical plants
that we try to grow here.
The roots of many plants
will produce new shoots
next year if the top of the
plant is killed to the ground
by the cold.
Some commercial
nurseries and fruit growers
run sprinklers to protect
their plants from the cold.
This is not recommended
for homeowners since the
buildup of ice can do more
harm to the plants than
good if not done properly.
Vegetables in the garden
can be protected by using a
row cover fabric available at
local garden centers. This
can extend the season for
cold sensitive vegetables
(such as tomatoes and late
beans) by a few weeks.
Cold-hardy vegetables such
as broccoli and cabbage
should do fine even with
frosty weather.
When you bring outdoor
potted plants inside for
winter protection, the plants
experience several climate
changes. In general,
conditions in our homes are
darker, warmer and drier
than outdoors at this time
of the year. This transition
to an indoor climate can
cause the plant to shed
leaves. Leaves may also
turn yellowish in color. The
edges of the leaves may
turn brown from the lower
humidity. New plant growth

Flower trial gives a huge
dose of the Christmas spirit
at University of Florida.
he Master
Gardeners of
Columbia County
know how to throw a
Christmas party. Not
content with the usual get
together at someone's
house, Extension Director
Don Goode and
approximately 15 of the
Master Gardeners group
gathered at the University
of Florida's poinsettia trial
to get a huge dose of the
Christmas spirit.
For many in the group, it was the first
time they experienced the profusion of color
that is an annual event at the university.
University of Florida professors, staff and
students work year-round in the Department
of Environmental Horticulture
experimenting with new varieties of
poinsettias and comparing the horticultural
qualities of the various types. Their efforts
result in the National Poinsettia Trials that
take place at three universities across the
country - at Purdue, the University of
Florida and North Carolina State. These
trials help professional growers anticipate
the tastes of future buyers of the new and
improved cultivars that are being developed.
It is probably no coincidence that after the
introduction of a new cultivar, such as the
"Jingle Bells" variety, that national stores
such as Lowe's and Wal-Mart begin to carry
them along with the standard red, pink and
white varieties.
This year's trial was held on Thursday, and
consumers were asked to judge different
varieties of poinsettias. Upon entering the
large greenhouse containing a variety of
poinsettia colors, visitors were handed a
clipboard and asked to move among
numbered tables answering questions about
their poinsettia-buying habits and surveying
displays of the plants.
At one table, there were 10 different red
varieties that at first glance appear to look all
alike. But after careful consideration, the
difference in leaf design, the texture of the
leaves, the size and color of the bracts, and
intensity of the red all could be seen. Visitors
were asked to choose their favorite three.
One table exhibited 10 extremely different
varieties, such as the red and cream speckled
"Jingle Bells" variety or the elegant cream
tinged with blush pink "Visions of Grandeur."
The final part of the survey was a request
to view 88 different varieties of poinsettias
and choose the top 10. From cream, pink,
salmon, tomato red to traditional red, and
plum varieties to the splatter paint and
multi-colored varieties, the task was daunting.
This year, according to Environmental
Horticulture student Jennifer Boldt, a "new"
variety is being introduced. The Dolce Rosa
poinsettia is the combination of a hybridized
variety of poinsettia and the wild poinsettia
that originally was found growing in Mexico
in the 1800s. The resulting poinsettia is a
pink, almost fuchsia-colored, narrow-leafed
plant that appeared to be quite popular with
this year's visitors.

After completing
the survey, visitors
were given the
opportunity to
bring home some
of the more exotic
varieties they just
reviewed. The sale
is a fundraiser for
the students and.
this is where I
caught up with the
Columbia County
Master Gardeners.
Carol Sheridan,
Judee Swihart and
Linda Adcock are
just a few of the
Master Gardeners
who were there to experience the
poinsettia extravaganza and were duly
impressed, saying they had' no idea of
the wide variety of colors and leaf
types that were being grown. Some,
like Master Gardener Pat Redding,
bought a marbled peachy color variety.
This led to a discussion that these
were really "designer poinsettias"
available in so many colors that they
can be bought to match your d6cor.
One of the members, Judy Pruitt,
even found the perfect gift, the
"Plum Pudding" poinsettia, which
matched perfectly the color scheme
of her mother and father's
upcoming 65th wedding anniversary
The Master Gardeners, having
been infused with the holiday spirit
after viewing the beautiful
poinsettias, were off to continue their
holiday party at the Olive Garden.
For more information about the
Master Gardener program, contact
Goode at 752-5247.

TOP: Young Travis Jaffee of Lake City helps his mom,
Cheryl Jaffee, choose their favorite 10 varieties of
poinsettias. MIDDLE: This year's special variety, the
Dolce Rosa, is a throw back to the early native
poinsettias. It is a combination of more modern hybrids
with the early native plant. ABOVE: At the Poinsettia
trials, visitors are asked to judge the 88 varieties of
poinsettias that have been developed and grown by the

Europe for two, under $1,200: A game you can win

Travel expenses
can be cut if
invested wisely.

Associated Press
DUBLIN, Ireland -
Europe. For two. Five
days, four nights. Total

cost: as little as possible.
Now that's my sort of
challenge. As a
Europhile and veteran
of far too many Atlantic
hops - many of them as
a student, and therefore
on the cheap - I've
accumulated a roster of
tips and tricks for find-
ing and making the
most of bargain fares.

Time to put them to
the test. Armed with a
stack of travel maga-
zines, a laptop and a
yearning for another
jaunt, I challenged
myself to see just how
cheaply I could get two
people to Europe. I set
an optimistic total
budget of $1,200.
After hunting for

bargain fares and plug-
ging into a new trend
called couch-surfing, I
ended up in Dublin
sleeping in someone's
spare room, hanging out
in local eateries and at a
lively neighborhood pub
called Kavanagh's. Most
importantly, I stuck to
my budget. Here's how I
did it.

First, the rules.
- No frequent flyer
miles. For the challenge
to be meaningful, any-
one should be able to
replicate it.
- The trip should be
during or as close to
high season as possible.

flights to Europe in

Tree basics
Associated Press

CLEMSON, S.C. - That
Christmas tree you brought
home from the corner lot no
longer has its own roots to
stand on, so it's up to you to
make sure it stands tall and
Some basic engineering
skill will help, advises Ben
Sill, civil engineer at
Clemson University. His
* Choose a tree that is
symmetrical and has a
straight trunk. Lop-sided or
crooked trees are accidents
waiting to happen.
* Avoid the round
Christmas tree stands.
Instead, use one with legs -
the longer legs the better.
These will help redistribute
the weight of the tree.
* Don't crowd the tree
into a wall. That can
unbalance the tree and make
it fall.
* If your tree is still tipsy,
adopt what Sill calls "brute-
force engineering" - install
screw-eye hooks near the
top of the window that is the
tree's chosen spot. Then run
small-gauge guide wires
from the screw eyes to the
top of tree. "Before, every-
one would have to look at
the tree, then adjust it to the
left, adjust it to the right, and
so on," Sill said. "'This way, I
just get it fairly close, and
the problem is solved."
* Now that your tree is up
and balanced, start by
hanging the heaviest
ornaments directly over and
parallel to the legs of the
tree stand. Sill says this is
the "force times distance"
argument. OK, you don't
understand that? Just do it. It
will keep the tree from
tipping over.

More black families attracted to home schooling

Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. - Denise
Armstrong decided to home
school her two sons and
daughter because she thought
she could do a better job of
instilling her values in her
children than a public school
Years ago, she found herself
the lone black parent at home-
education gatherings, usually
dominated by white Christian
evangelicals. Gradually, she's
noticed more African-
Americans joining the ranks.
"I've been delighted .to be
running, into people in the
African-American home-
schooling community,"
Armstrong said. "I noticed,
looking around the home-.
schooling convention at that
vast sea of people and seeing
more people of color."
An apparent increase in
black families opting to edu-
cate their. children at home,
home-schooling advocates say,
reflects a wider desire among,
families df all races to guide
their children's moral upbring-
ing,, but also reflects growing
concerns about issues such as
subpar school conditions and
preserving cultural heritage.
"About 10 years ago, we
started seeing more and more
black families showing up at
conferences and it's been
steadily increasing since then,"

said Michael Smith, president
of the Home School Legal
Defense Association, a national
advocacy group.
Nationwide, about
1.1 million children were home
schooled in 2003, or
2.2 percent of the school-age
population. That was up from
about 850,000, or 1.7 percent,
in 1999, according to the
U.S. Department of
Education's National Center
for Education Statistics. A
racial breakdown' of home-
schooled students isn't yet
available, the center said.
In Virginia, 17,448 students
were home schooled last year,
down from 18,102 the previous
year, according to. the state
Department of Education.
However, the Home School
Legal Defense Association
says the percentage of black
home-schooling families has
increased, though hard
numbers weren't available.
The numbers are still very
low because most black fami-
lies lack the time or economic
ability to home school, said
Michael Apple, an education
professor at the University of
Wisconsin who tracks home
schooling. He said much of the
increase is seen in cities with a
history of racial tensions, and
where black people feel
alienated and marginalized.
Some families decide to do it
because public schools don't
all adequately teach African-

American history and culture,
some want to protect their chil-
dren from school violence,
"and for some, it's all of this
and religion," Apple said.
Armstrong said she wants
her 12-, 10- and 7-year-old
children to have a "moral
. Judeo-Christian foundation"
that public schools can't
"I felt that my husband and I
would be able to give more of a
tutorial, individual learning sit-
.uation than a teacher trying to
address 40 kids at one time,"
said Armstrong, who lives in
Chesterfield County.
She also said she was con-
cerned that schools wrongly
label some black boys as learn-
ing-disabled, arnd their educa-
tional needs are treated corre-
spondingly, while similarly
behaving white children are
Antoinette Williamson, a
mother of four in Clarke
County, says she has a lot in
common with white home-
schooling parents, including
many being born-again
Christians, but there's still a
need to associate with other
black families.
'The image they see so
much of the time is not a
positive image of black
Americans, and being a minor-
ity in a minority where they do
not see many people who look
like them - there's just a need
to connect," Williamson said.

Denise Armstrong helps her son, Timothy, 8, pick out a book in a
local library in Richmond, Va., on Dec. 1. Armstrong decided to
homeschool her children feeling she could do a better job
instilling her values in her children than the public school system

To help guide black home-
schooling families, Joyce
Burges and her husband, Eric,
started the National Black
Home Educators Resource
Association in 2000. She said
many families were dissatisfied
with their public schools, but
were unaware that home
schooling was legal.
The Baton Rouge, La.-area
resident says she and other
black home schoolers have
been likened to Revolutionary

traitor Benedict Arnold by peo-
ple who think they've turned
their backs on the long strug-
gle to gain equal access to
public education. But, she said,
when schools aren't teaching
children to read, or are failing
to provide a safe place to learn,
children should come first.
"You do what you have to do
that your children get an
excellent education," she said.
"Don't leave it up to the

Son learns Mom is stepping

out on Dad while he's in jail

DEAR ABBY: My father
went to prison five years ago,
and my mother has been tak-
ing care of my brother and sis-
ter. (I'm older and out of the
I recently came across some
shocking information. Mom
has been going on dates with a
clergy member who has been
sending her text messages say-
ing things like "I can't stop
thinking about you," etc. I also
found out she has a profile on a
couple of Internet dating sites
and has been coming home
later than usual after going out
"for drinks with friends" after
work. When I confronted her,
she first denied it, then got
caught in a lie. She refuses to
accept responsibility, insisting
"it wasn't a date," although this
man expressed romantic
feelings for her.
My father knows nothing
about this while he languishes
in a cell for what could be
another five or six years.
Should I tell him? I also do not
know if I should confront this
clergyman because I find his
actions despicable.
How can I explain to my
mother that what she's doing is
wrong? When I try to talk to
her in a mature way, she says
things like, "I can't hear you!"
Any advice you can offer would-
be appreciated. -


Abigail Van Buren
Please don't waste your breath
trying to shame your mother
into good behavior because it
won't work. She knows what
she's doing is wrong, and that's
why she is practicing "selective
deafness" when you try to
reason with her.
As tempting as it might be, I
see absolutely nothing to be
gained by telling your father.
The news will only make him
unhappier and more frustrated
than he already is.
If you would like to say a few
well-chosen words to the cler-
gyman who is dallying with
your mother, you're certainly
within your rights to do so.
While you're at it, let him know
you have proof. That ought to
dampen his ardor.
As for the pain you are feel-
ing, it's natural that you would
ache inside. So please consider
having some sessions with a
licensed psychotherapist who
can listen, guide you and help
you make sure that this doesn't
have an impact on your future
relationships with women.

DEAR ABBY: I recently
learned that my neighbor's son
offered my 14-year-old marijua-
na, and my son refused. (The
two boys are close in age.) I
heard. all about it from my
12-year-old daughter. When I
� asked my son about it, he
admitted it happened. I have no
reason to doubt his story, and I
hope he maintains his strength
and resolve during the years to
come. I am extremely proud of
My question is, should I con-
front the neighbor boy about it,
or should I let his parents know
what I learned? Of course, the
third option is to mind my own
business. Eventually, they'll
discover what's going on and
deal with it on their own - and
no friction will be created
between two otherwise great
neighbors. - PROUD PAPA
are in a position to do your
"great neighbors" a favor. If the
shoe were on the othei foot,
wouldn't you want to know
your son was headed for trou-
ble? If the answer is yes, apply
the Golden Rule. However,
when you tell these parents
what they need to know, I
strongly recommend that you
not brag about how "proud"
you are that your son refused
the offer.

Q&A: Jeff Tweedy on making music

Associated Press
NEW YORK - Shutting
down file-sharing is like
closing a library.
That's according to Wilco
frontman Jeff Tweedy, who's
on a solo acoustic tour after the
band's recent release of the
live double CD "Kicking
Television." Tweedy spoke to
The Associated Press after a
recent performance about
songwriting, performing live
and when it's good to steal
AP: At what point did you
realize that music was some-
thing you could create?

Tweedy: I don't really
remember when music
became the most important
thing in my life. My mother
claims that I would stand and
point at the stereo when I first
learned how to walk, before I
learned how to talk.
AP: What was your first
Tweedy: Guitar.
AP: The first song you wrote?
Tweedy: I wrote a song with
a guy that lived in my home
town for his band when I was
15, 16 called "Your Little
World," and they made a single
out of it, but it was a local
AP: Do you remember what

you were thinking when you
wrote it?
Tweedy: It was just a pop
song about a girl.
AP: Do you listen to the
radio or contemporary music?
Specifically, what do you like
or hate about it?
Tweedy: Honestly, I don't
listen to the radio very much.
AP: What's the first thing
you do after you've written a
Tweedy: I tend to have a lot
of things working at once. Like
works in progress. But if I get
the main idea of a song togeth-
er I usually play it for my wife,
or my kids, and see how they
react to it. Eventually, I play it

for my banrdmates to see how
they react to it. And if things
keep going with some sense of
encouragement, we record it
and finish it.
AP: During last night's
show, the crowd was calling
out songs they wanted you to
play. How much have those
requests influenced your set
list over the years?
Tweedy: I don't really have
a set when I do a solo perform-
ance. I put a list on stage that
(contains) way more songs
than I will ever be able to play
in one night. I just use it if I
can't think of a song. Mostly I
just go with what feels right to
play next.

Westin chain to ban smoking nationwide

Associated Press
major hotel chain is going
smoke-free next month and
will add $200 to the bill of
anyone who violates the poli-
cy, an executive said Monday.
Westin Hotels & Resorts is
banning smoking indoors and
poolside at all 77 of its proper-
ties in the United States,
Canada and the Caribbean,

said senior Vice President
Sue Brush. Smokers will have
to go to a designated outdoor
area, she said.
Enica Thompson, spokes-
woman for the American
Hotel & Lodging Association,
said Westin is the first major
American chain to go smoke-
free and predicted that "many
of the other hotel chains will
probably want to see how it
works out for Westin" before
following suit.

Eight Westin hotels were
already smoke-free, and at
least 5 percent of the rooms at
the others had been set aside
for nonsmokers, Brush said.
But market research found
that 92 percent of Westin's
guests were requesting non-
smoking rooms, and some of
those who couldn't get them
were "quite upset," she said.
Brush said White Plains-
based Westin is positioning
itself to attract guests seeking

"personal renewal."
"When we talk to our con-
sumers, what they want for
their personal renewal is a
smoke-free environment,"
she said.
Brush said customers will
be advised about the policy at
check-in. If a guest violates
the rule - "when we can
observe it by smelling it or
whatever" - a $200 fee will
be added to the bill.
"It's really a cleaning fee,"

she said. The 2,400 smoking
rooms in the chain are under-
going deep cleaning and air
purifying before the Jan. 1
changeover, "and once you
smoke in there you've violat-
ed that entire environment
and we have to clean it all
over again."
The smoking ban will apply
to hallways, lobbies, and
restaurants, except for the
eight restaurants that are run
by outside companies and not

under Westin's control,
Brush said. "They will be
invited to participate," she
The policy will not extend
to Westin's overseas hotels or
to other chains, such as
Sheraton, that are under the
same parent company,
Starwood Hotels & Resorts
Worldwide Inc. Westin was
the brand that "had the least
amount of smokers to begin
with," Brush said.

pointed. But at least it gave me
a base against which to
compare other rates.
Because I cared more about
price than destination, I
searched a handful of hubs -
Frankfurt, Rome, Paris,
London and Madrid. Most
flights were clocking in at
$500 or more.

With my base price set, I
next hit discount, consolidator
and last-minute Web sites
(such as This is
where I expected to find a win-
ner, but was surprised to be
stuck firmly in $500 territory,
regardless of the destination.
Onward. Airline Web sites
can be hit or miss. We've all
heard rumors of outrageously
low and fleeting fares offered
by airlines on their own sites,
but I've never seen much
substance behind the stories.
Still, some airlines have
earned reputations for great
prices to Europe, including
Iceland Air and Ireland's Aer
Lingus. On a whim, I tried the
latter and found a $440 flight
to Dublin. Now we're talking.
Aer Lingus also goes all
over Europe, but a bit of
experimentation soon
revealed an important budget-
breaker. Landing fees and
taxes in London and continen-
tal Europe - regardless of the
airline - added $100 or more

to the ticket price.
For some reason, those
same fees to Ireland were far
less. Dublin was sounding like
a winner. Now to beat down
the price.
Airline ticket prices are
based in part on departure
and return dates, making
some days cheaper than oth-
ers. Flexible flyers can make
the most of this by planning
their flights on the days when
fares are cheapest (often
But most airlines make that
impossible. They don't tell you
what the rate is on any given
day. The only way to find the
best price is to enter an almost
endless combination of depar-
ture and return dates and
compare the resulting prices.
Thankfully, Aer Lingus and
U.S. Airways are kind enough
to post their rates on monthly
calendars. This allowed me to
see not only which days were
the least expensive, but also
when in October their prices
would drop for the season.

GOODE: Protecting plants needed

may become leggy.
When you bring plants
indoors, give them as much
light as you can. This could be
a bright window or artificial
grow lights. To be effective,
grow lights need 'to be no
more than a few feet away
from the plants. Leaving the
room lights on will not be
bright enough.
Watch for insect hitchhikers
as you bring plants indoors.
You can wash the plant with
the water hose to remove any
insects that may be clinging to
the leaves. Check the bottom

of the pot and clean off any
clinging soil. You might place
the plant in the garage or in a
cardboard box for a couple of
days to allow any intruders to
crawl off the plant or pot.
Provide extra humidity by
placing your potted plant on
top of a larger saucer contain-
ing gravel and water. Be care-
ful not to water .your plants
more than needed or fungi and
mold will grow on the potting
soil and increase allergy prob-
lems for sensitive people. If
you see mushrooms growing
out of the pot, consider

repotting that plant and
reducing the watering.
You may decide you don't
have the space for all your
plants. Don't feel guilty. Take
some cuttings and start small-
er plants. Clumping plants can
be divided to reduce their size.
Give some to the neighbors.
Share the joy!

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON C hristmas lights decorated the Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store where 6-yearold Natalie spent painstak ing moments glancing over the tables of toys and presents, unsure what to select for her mother, brother and sister. To Natalie, her favorite part was that she got to pick out, by herself, toys for her siblings. The Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store fifth annual Kids Night, held on Thursday, allowed children to select several gifts for family members free of charge. Volunteers helped the children select the gifts, then wrapped the presents with the paper of the childs choice. Santa also visited Haven Hospice Attic, where he posed for pictures with individual children and families. It was a great night, said Haven Hospice employee Courtney Quirie. The kids took great care picking out the perfect gifts. They were so thought ful. I think well have some Christmas trees that will have presents under them. Children took their turn walking with Haven Hospice volunteers past the presents, glancing over the items avail able. Mary Kay lotion, military action figures, Christmas-themed platters, jewelry, stuffed animals the rows of options seemed endless to many of the children trying to select the perfect gift. A young girl, Lilly, grabbed a pink clipboard labeled #1 Mom and TODAY IN SPORTS Tigers take on Taylor County at home.

TWO-VEHICLE CRASH SLOWS 247 TRAFFIC By STEVEN RICHMOND An oncologist who practiced in both Lake City and Gainesville is facing disciplinary actions unanimously approved by the Florida Board of Medicine dur ing a meeting Dec. 6. Paul Joseph Schilling, M.D., one of the found ing members of the Community Cancer Center of North Florida, delivered doses of radia tion as part of a endo bronchial brachytherapy treatment to the incor rect lung of a patient, according to an adminis trative complaint filed by the Florida Department of Health in June, 2011. The Florida Board of Medicine agreed to issue a letter of concern impose a $7,500 fine on Schilling. In addition, the board required he take brachytherapy quality assurance and risk man agement classes for a minimum of five hours each. During a dummy run pro cedure for the treat ment begin ning March 9, 2011, a safety mechanism did not deliver treatment to the patient, named W.R., due to a kink in the cath eter, the complaint said. According to the docu ments, Schilling was noti fied about the incorrect placement of the delivery catheter in the patients right lung. However, he instructed a member of his staff to circumvent the kink-detection safety mechanism by splicing an additional segment of catheter to the delivery catheter, the complaint said. Two days later, high doses of radiation were directed to the right lung instead of the left lung, as originally intended, Emergency responders from the CCFD and Lifeguard prepare one of three patients for transport to an area hospital following a two vehicle crash just before 3 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of SR 247 and SW Tamarac Loop. State Road 247 was reduced to one lane for about an hour. CCSO and FHP were also on scene.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office reports the 62-year-old grandfather was driving in Wesley Chapel Wednesday when he felt something graze his fore-head above his left eye. A preliminary investigation indicates a stray bullet entered through the man’s open car window and grazed him, causing a superficial wound. The bullet then htis the passen-ger side window, passing near his granddaughter’s head. She was not injured. Investigators believe the bullet traveled a consider-able distance and have searched the area but not found a suspect.Malpractice rule won’t be adopted TALLAHASSE — The Supreme Court won’t adopt a rule to reflect a new law that creates restrictions on doctors testifying during medical malpractice trials. The court issued its opinion Thursday, say-ing the language in the bill would have a chilling effect on the ability to find expert witnesses in mal-practice cases. Groups representing doctors and lawyers are already disputing what the opinion means. Florida Medical Association lawyer Jeff Scott said it has no impact on the law, while former Florida Justice Association president Gary Farmer said the opinion means the court struck down the law. The opinion wasn’t a response to a legal chal-lenge to the law, but rather affirming a Florida Bar Board of Governors vote to not implement the rule. The board questioned the constitutionality of the law.Man jailed after losing $100 DELAND — The loser of a card game is in jail after deputies say he tried to rob and shoot the man who had just won $100. The Daytona Beach News Journal reports 22-year-old Jeremy Addison was arrested Monday following an incident at a DeLand park. He remained in the Volusia County Jail Thursday, fac-ing attempted first-degree murder charges. Police say the victim told police he won $100 from Addison. Addison then quit the game, which his friends continued play-ing. When the victim got up to leave the pavilion, he was struck in the back of the head. The victim told police Addison pointed a gun at him. He said Addison told him to “give me the $100 and I won’t kill you.” He also threatened the victim’s family if he called for help. Police arrested Addison on Monday in the same park where the incident occurred. No attorney was listed for Addison. His bail is listed at $75,000.Deputies fatally shoot man ST. AUGUSTINE — A north Florida sheriff’s dep-uty fatally shot an armed man during a disturbance at a home in St. Augustine. Several St. Johns County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home Wednesday after-noon after someone from inside called 911. They say 64-year-old Rodney Wayne Stevens died. Local newspapers report the deputies saw a man, who then went back inside the house. Sheriff’s Commander Chuck Mulligan says mul-tiple deputies were at the scene and they haven’t determined how many fired or how many rounds were shot. No deputies were injured. Stevens had three outstanding warrants for grand theft auto, felony battery and tampering with a witness.Final goodbye to those who died in 2013B oth were mold-breaking former heads of state who reshaped their own countries and the world. Nelson Mandela, revered for his efforts to end apart-heid in South Africa, and Margaret Thatcher, the “Iron Lady” who imposed her will on Britain’s politics and economy, were among notables who died in 2013. Mandela, who died Dec. 5 at age 95, was considered a master of for-giveness. He became South Africa’s first black president after spending 27 years in prison for championing equality against the white-minority government, and he inspired the world by seeking a relatively peace-ful transition of power. As Britain’s only female prime minister, Thatcher ruled for 11 years and showed an unshakable faith in the free market, leaving behind a leaner government and more pros-perous nation. While she had fierce critics, praise for her leadership came in from around the world when she died in April at 87.Political figuresOther political figures who died this year included Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, former Italian premier Giulio Andreotti, Poland’s ex-prime minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki, France’s Pierre Mauroy, and Hungary’s Gyula Horn, prominent mayors of New York and Beijing, Ed Koch and Chen Xitong, and former U.S. Senators Frank Lautenberg and Harry F. Byrd.Science and technologyAlso dying in 2013 was a man whose invention you may hold as you read this. Doug Engelbart, who died in July, invented the computer mouse and developed other technol-ogy that changed the way people work, play and communicate. Others from the world of science and tech-nology who died this year included the Manhattan Project’s Donald F. Hornig, Nobel Prize winners Frederick Sanger, Robert Edwards and Kenneth Wilson, and audio pio-neers Ray Dolby and Amar Bose and astronauts C. Gordon Fullerton and Scott Carpenter.EntertainmentIn the arena of arts and entertainment, this year saw the death of one who was hugely influential though not technically an entertainer at all. Roger Ebert, who died in April, was America’s most popular film critic, telling audiences which movies to see or avoid with his famous thumbs-up or thumbs-down reviews. Others from the entertainment world who died this year included actors James Gandolfini, Jane Kean, Annette Funicello, Jean Stapleton, Bonnie Franklin, Cory Monteith, Frank Thornton and Conrad Bain, as well as the swimming star Esther Williams and the Bollywood villain Pran. Musicians included George Jones, Van Cliburn, Lou Reed, Donald Byrd, Ray Manzarek, Bebo Valdes, Mindy McCready, Chrissy Amphle and Chris Kelly. Among others: writer Tom Clancy, director Nagisa Oshima and ballerina Maria Tallchief.

This year’s event will feature multiple snow slides, 30 tons of snow, bounce houses, obstacle courses and slides, a rock climbing wall, live enter-tainment and food vendors. Attendees will be able to visit with Santa Claus from 11 a.m. 2 p.m. Busy Bee B&B is the title sponsor for Snow Day 2013. The Snow Day festivities will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the Christmas parade is set to begin at 6 p.m. Decker said Busy Bee B&B will give away prizes throughout the day includ-ing cash, game consoles, electronics and scooters. Bob Garner, Christmas parade chairman for the Lake City Rotary Club, who is responsible for the parade, said more than 70 entries have registered for the Christmas parade. “There is an increase this year and we’re up to 78 entries,” he said. Meally Jenkins, founder of the Christmas Dream Machine, will be the parade grand marshal. The Christmas Dream Machine serves from 367 1,100 children annually by providing clothing and Christmas gifts. The agen-cy is in its 25th year. The Lake City Rotary Club has been responsi-ble for hosting the parade the last three years. This year’s parade theme is: “Miracle on Marion.” The parade starts at 6 p.m. and line-up will begin at 5 p.m. in the open lot near the corner of North West Washington Street and North West Hilton Avenue. The parade will start on Marion Avenue near Washington Street and head south, ending at the DOT office near Clements Street and disperse at the Farmers Furniture Parking lot. The parade will also have a “Best Float” com-petition. The judges will judge from the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce office front porch. “The winning float will have a donation made to the Christmas Dream Machine in its name,” Garner said. With Snow Day taking place in Olustee Park in downtown Lake City, several streets will be blocked off for a majority of the day. the complaint said. The Department of Health said Schilling committed medical mal-practice by failing to recognize the delivery catheter was in the right lung, failed to recognize that the delivery cath-eter was kinked, inap-propriately directed his treatment team to cir-cumvent kink-detection safety equipment and delivered high doses of radiation to the wrong location.

After ask-ing about the words on the pink board, Lilly said, “Can I get this for myself?” Even though PalmerPorter smiled and told Lilly she could, the young girl placed the item back before selecting two gifts for her brother. While the non-profit encouraged chil-dren to select only three gifts, the volunteers never told the children they couldn’t have more than three. By the end of the night, the table was still full of available presents. “It’s fun,” Palmer-Porter said. “It’s wonderful. Not just the little ones, but the parents too are so grate-ful... I go home feeling the warm-and-fuzzies. I’ve seen a lot of children who really want to pick something for themselves, but then counted family members. So they put that aside to make sure they get some-thing for their mom or their brother.” Throughout the store, children munched on chocolate chip cook-ies while waiting to sit on Santa’s lap. They all clasped their wrapped presents close, excitedly teasing siblings with hints for what would be placed under the Christmas tree. “Don’t tell me,” one young boy, Christopher, said to his sister. Persistent, she excitedly asked, “But do you like-” He cut her off before she could reveal the secret clue. Parents and siblings waited outside while the gifts were selected so that the Christmas presents remained a surprise, said Sharon Jackson, the man-ager of the Haven Hospice Attic. Usually the event draws around 80 children, but this year the store saw a smaller crowd than previ-ous years. To ensure the non-profit has an ample number of gifts, Haven Hospice sets items aside during the year to prepare for the event, as well as accepting monetary donations specifically to support Kids’ Night. “It’s nice that somebody does something for the kids,” said Rachel Graddy, who brought her daughter and several nephews to the event. “No one really ever thinks about how they feel. Most people are so wrapped up in going to town and doing. It’s not about the gifts. It’s about showing them love.” Her daughter, Skylar, picked gifts for her younger relatives, instead of using the night to get something out for herself. Her cousins — Walker and Login — used the night instead to get their family a present, but also a little something for themselves. Login picked two gifts for his family, but decided he really wanted a hobby horse. “I was just excited to pick them,” he said. A row of volunteers spent the night wrapping gifts, including Wellborn resident Beanie Brooks. Brooks came prepared to spend the night with excited children, donning reindeer antlers and red jingle bells. “I love seeing the kids,” Brooks said. “They walk in that room, see all those presents and their eyes are like ‘whoa, look at them all.’... It teaches them a little bit about giving.” Valley executive director. The announcements came at the UWSV lun-cheon Wednesday at the Columbia County Senior Services Lifestyle Enrichment Center with more than 70 people in attendance Wednesday. Crista Thomas, the Columbia County cam-paign chair, announced that campaign contributions and pledges booked total $374,994 for the 2013-14 campaign. “The annual United Way community fundraising campaign is all about gen-erating financial support which stays right here in our own community to help our own neighbors in need through services provided through the affiliated agen-cies,” she said. “The dis-tribution of these funds is well thought out with funds available for allocation dis-tributed after two full days of Admissions and Allocations Committee meetings with each of the agencies to ensure the funds are allo-cated to best meet current needs. Some of our small community agencies could not keep their doors open without the support of United Way funding. Most of the agencies use these community dollars as lever-age for grants, multiplying your gift many times over. Our United Way agencies utilize community support and grant funds to contrib-ute almost $13 million in services.” Dopp said the purpose of the luncheon was to pro-vide campaign progress and hear some of the announcements of the company cam-paign accomplishments. TIMCO Aviation Services speaker, Kevin Maupin, sur-prised the audience with his report noting Timco has reached 90 percent of its $35,000 goal, represent-ing a 27 percent increase over last year. In addition Pastor Alvin Baker, chair of the Suwannee Valley Long Term Recovery Committee, spoke of the work complet-ed since Tropical Storm Debby hit the Suwannee Valley area and noted the committee’s progress and the many repairs complet-ed. He also stated there is not enough remaining resources to help those still in need in Columbia County and then he pre-sented a check for $1,500 from his church, New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church.

Budget peace breaks out By DAVID ESPOAP Special CorrespondentWASHINGTON — Battlefatigued and suddenly bipartisan, the House voted Thursday night to ease across-the-board federal spending cuts and head off future government shutdowns, acting after Speaker John Boehner unleashed a stinging attack on tea party-aligned conservative groups campaigning for the measure’s defeat. The legislation, backed by the White House, cleared on a vote of 332-94, with lopsided majorities of Republicans and Democrats alike voting in favor. Final passage is expected next week in the Senate. U.S. Rep Ted Yoho (R-Gainesville) voted in favor of the bill. “The American people are tired of Washington dysfunction,” he said in a prepared statement after the vote. “Legislating from crisis to cri-sis has caused a trillion dollar debt and an acceptance of the status quo. This budget resolution offers a path to reduce the deficit and cut spend-ing in a responsible way. Getting back to a regular budgeting process allows us the opportunity to cut spending and root out wasteful pro-grams. I look forward to breaking through the partisan log-jam and doing what the American people sent us up here to do---bring back the greatness of America. While not a perfect bill, this is an important first step in bring-ing our nation back from fiscal calamity.” The events in the House gave a light coating of bipartisan cooper-ation to the end of a bruising year of divided govern-ment — memorable for a partial government shutdown, flirtation with an unprecedented Treasury default and gridlock on immigra-tion, gun control and other items on President Barack Obama’s sec-ond-term agenda. Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, hailed the vote, saying it “shows Washington can and should stop governing by crisis and both sides can work together to get things done.” Minutes after the budget action, the House approved a broad mili-tary policy bill that aims to curb sexual assaults, cover combat pay for U.S. forces and fund new air-craft and ships. That vote, too, was lopsided, 350-69, sending the bill to the Senate, which plans to adjourn for the year next week. In the end, the budget debate in the House was tame by com-parison with Boehner’s criticism of Republican-favoring outside groups that at times have been more of an obstacle to him than Democrats. “I think they’re misleading their followers,” the Republican speaker said of the groups, whom he point-edly also blamed for last fall’s politi-cally damaging partial government shutdown. “I think they’re pushing our members in places where they don’t want to be. And frankly, I just think that they’ve lost all credibil-ity” by opposing legislation before the details are known.” He mentioned no organizations by name, although it appeared he was referring to Heritage Action and Club for Growth, both of which have sought to push the House further to the right than the Republican leadership has been willing to go. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., a chief GOP architect of the deal, made the conservatives’ case for sup-port. The measure “reduces the deficit by $23 billion. It does not raise taxes and it cuts spend-ing in a smarter way,” said the Budget Committee’s chairman, whose handiwork could well be challenged in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries. The second-ranking Democrat, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, joined other party leaders in swing-ing behind the measure, even though he noted that he repre-sents 62,000 federal workers and said future government employ-ees will pay higher pensions costs because of the bill. “This agree-ment is better than the alternative” of ever deeper across-the-board cuts, he said. The agreement, negotiated by Ryan and Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington — and endorsed by the White House — would set overall spending levels for the current budget year and the one that begins on Oct. 1, 2014. That straightforward action would probably eliminate the possibility of another government shutdown and reduce the opportunity for the peri-odic brinkmanship of the kind that has flourished in the current three-year era of divided government. The measure would erase $63 billion in across-the-board cuts set for January and early 2015 on domestic and defense programs, leaving about $140 billion in reduc-tions in place. On the other side of the budget ledger, it projects sav-ings totaling $85 billion over the coming decade, enough to show a deficit reduction of about $23 bil-lion over the 10-year period. The cuts would be replaced with savings generated from dozens of sources. Among them are higher airline security fees, curbs on the pension benefits of new federal workers and additional costs for corporations whose pensions are guaranteed by the federal govern-ment. The measure also would slow the annual cost-of-living increase in benefits for military retirees under the age of 62.— after Speaker Boehner’s tough talk Yoho New Year Zumba Expo: A free classFrom staff reportsSarah Sandlin, Zumba Instructor for the City of Lake City, is offering a free Zumba class on Jan. 5 at the Teen Town city building at Youngs Park from 4-5 p.m. To help residents continue on in their track of GET FIT LAKE CITY after the holidays, Sandlin will go over basic steps of a Zumba class, so that people who have never been to a Zumba class will feel more comfort-able coming to one.

Scott’s fee proposal picking up supportBy BRANDON LARRABEETHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott’s plan to lower vehicle-registra-tion fees by $401 mil-lion picked up steam ahead of its announce-ment Thursday, gaining measured support from Senate President Don Gaetz and, somewhat sarcastically, from Scott’s chief rival in his bid for re-election next year. The proposal, which Scott was set to unveil Thursday afternoon in Tampa, would roll back the fees to register a “typi-cal automobile” by $25.05, from $71.85 to $46.80 -where they stood before a 2009 increase that was part of an effort to shore up the state’s finances in the wake of the economic recession. The initiative is part of a larger, $500 million tax-and-fee-cut package that Scott has promised in his last legislative ses-sion before facing voters in November. A white paper by Scott’s office said more details on the remainder of the cuts would come later. Meeting with reporters Thursday morning for a breakfast, Gaetz, R-Niceville, threw his support behind some form of reduction in fees for motorists. He point-ed out that the Senate approved a smaller pro-posal last year from Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart. Negron’s bill promised to roll back the fees by $12 a vehicle in exchange for doing away with a tax credit for insurance com-panies.

Our letter to the hospital boardWant to be liked?D o you sometimes think everybody loves you? Or, do you sometimes think nobody loves you? Either way, you’re probably wrong! Whoever you are, there will be some who will like you, and some who don’t. How is it that we come to like or dislike people, and others come to like or dislike us? Is there anything you can do about how well you’re liked? Psychologists who have researched the issues say “yes,” there are things you can do. The research generally suggests that we tend to like or dislike certain people or traits, but most of our liking for others is a learning pro-cess. Mostly, we like certain people because we learn to like them! The primary learning process for “liking” is called classical condition-ing. Here’s how it works. Classical conditioning occurs when a new or significant stimulus is paired with a positive or a pleasant thing— an object, an activity, or through our senses of sight, hearing or touch. Some of these could be a pleasant environment like the beach or a party, music we enjoy, pleasant or comfortable surroundings, or any positive cir-cumstances. So, when we meet or spend time with a person, all the background stimuli going on at the time tends to attach, or to become associated with, our feelings about that per-son. The more good experiences, activities, or interests we come to associate with someone, the more we tend to like them. What does that mean for you? When you meet someone, or when you get together with someone you already know, it turns out that the more pleasant or positive interests you share (like pleasant music or sounds, good surroundings, and good conversation or laughter you share) the more liking there will be for each other! Can just knowing this help you with your relationships? People want to like you! (Most of them do, that is!) I like to believe, “most folks will like you, unless you give them a reason not to.” How can you increase the chances that they will like you, and that you will like them? • Make a good first impression. Research shows that we form a basic opinion, a like or dislike for a person, in the first seconds after meeting! Smile. Keep eye contact. Say their name. Linger a while. Show an interest in this person. Who knows? They might turn out to be a great friend, someone who may be an important part of your life! • I find that most people can be very interesting, if you get to know them and give them a chance. Everyone has a story. Find some interests you share. Ask questions. You won’t know if you don’t ask! • Did you find interests you have in common? Can you get together and share your interests, things you both like to do? Join with them. • Be available. People tend to “grow on you.” Familiarity breeds liking. Did you know, that most people met their mates in situa-tions where they see each other a lot, like at work, school, or a social setting? The more you see them in pleasant situations, the better. That’s one reason that people with a lot of exposure, in the “lime-light,” become popular or even famous. • Show them the appreciation and respect that you feel. Find agreement and cooperation, and also accept, understand and appre-ciate your differences. Instead of arguing, find common agreement. Arguing really shows that you don’t respect or appreciate their attitudes or opinions. Do you real-ly think you can win an argument and have the other person like you more? • Give it time. Friendships and loving relationships, like fine wine, sweeten with time. For me, there’s nothing better than a fine loving relationship! T his week federal regulators began the process of removing the 22-year-old prohibition on in-flight cell phone calls now that all the techni-cal objections have been satisfied. Federal Communications Commission chairman said the current ban is “outdated and restrictive” even though he publicly admits to qualms about lifting the ban. The public also has mixed feelings about the ban. An Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday found that 48 percent of Americans oppose allowing the use of cell phones while aloft and just 19 percent support it. The opposition grows the more the respon-dents fly. Among those who take four or more flights a year, 78 percent want to keep the ban intact. Passengers now freely use smart phones, notebooks and laptops, MP3 players and e-readers but these come with earpieces and don’t require the user to talk to the device. The greatest objection voiced to cell phones was being trapped next to a passenger carry-ing on a loud and long-winded conversation. In today’s heavily booked flights there’s little chance of changing seats. Some passengers worried about fistfights at 30,000 feet when a passenger unwilling sub-jected to an annoying conversation reaches the breaking point, a major reason the largest union of flight attendants objects to the change. The Wall Street Journal, in an effort to examine “in-flight phone etiquette,” suggest airlines might create “yakking and non-yak-king sections” much like the old smoking and non-smoking sections. House Transportation Committee chairman Bill Shuster, R-Pa., plans to introduce a bill pro-hibiting the calls and Rep. Tom Petri, R-Wis., says he will reintroduce a bill he proposed sev-eral years ago when the issue first arose, the “Halting Airplane Noise to Give Us Peace Act.” Federal regulators are inclined to allow the airlines to make their policies on cell phone use. So far, according to AP, Delta is the only airline to state explicitly it won’t allow in-flight cell phone use. The others are “studying” the issue. But the pattern has been that when one airline takes away a passenger amenity the others soon follow. And the airlines may find the prospect of charging passengers extra to use their cell phones irresistible.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a letter sent Dec. 2 by the Lake City Reporter to the Lake Shore Hospital Authority asking the board to review its Meeting Rules and Procedures and alter them to allow the public to take photographs during public meetings, in accordance with Florida’s open meetings law. To recap, the board dis-cussed the policy at its Monday night meeting and voted unanimously to allow non-disruptive photography during meetings. Mr. Jack Berry, Executive DirectorDr. Waseem Khan, Chairman of the BoardLake Shore Hospital AuthorityLake City, FloridaDear Mr. Berry and Dr. Kahn,We respectfully request that you review and revise the Lake Shore Hospital Authority Meeting Rules and Procedures to omit Item 6, regarding the ban on pho-tography during board meetings. We understand the board’s intention to eliminate disruptions and maintain a professional meeting environment, and we fully support this goal. However, pho-tography is not an inherently disruptive activity. Under the protection of Florida’s open meetings law, we have been reassured the public’s right to photograph public meetings is protected. Item 3(a) of your Meeting Rules gives the chair authority “to conduct meetings in an orderly and civil manner.” We agree that no action during a meeting should be disruptive to the board’s business or the public’s right to listen attentively and properly partici-pate in a public meeting. We hope you will agree Item 3(a) sufficiently outlines a code of conduct for your meetings. We respect-fully request you review and revise your Meeting Rules and Procedures to remove the ban on photography at your public meetings, within the guidelines of civility and non-disruptive behavior you already have in place. We appreciate your willingness to listen to our position this evening and we ask for quick action to resolve this matter. Thank you all for your service to our community through the Lake Shore Hospital Authority.

The event will focus on bringing awareness to homeless individuals in the North Central Florida area and accept donations of non-perish-able food, blankets and other essen-tial supplies on their behalf. “December 21 is the first day of winter and the longest night of the year,” their press release said. “Each year homeless people die because they have no protection from the elements. The vigil helps bring awareness to homelessness in our Suwannee Valley area.” According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, around 37,000 homeless people die every year in the US due to inadequate clothing, shelter or food. The Homeless Services Network of Suwannee Valley reported encoun-tering 1,278 homeless individuals—including children—in Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee Counties last year. The Columbia County School System, Kickin’ it 4 the King Ministries and United Way of Suwannee Valley will support the event, as well. Organizers will begin the vigil in the Olustee Park gazebo in down-town Lake City at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 21.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, December 13 & 14, 2013 6A 6AF&V The cradle or cross? “Thou shall call His name Jesus; for He will save His people from their sins.” — Matthew 1:21b T his is the season when Christendom will stage the greatest celebration of the year. It will be to supposedly celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ. But in the great majority of the parties and gatherings the Guest of Honor is no where to be found. Instead of honoring the advent of this Man, the present-day demonstra-tions of Christmas are a disgrace to the One “that came to save His people from their sins.” Could it be that we have forgot-ten why He was born? He came to die, to give His life a ransom for our sins. The birth of Christ is not the important event in the story of this Man. His birth was necessary to prepare Him for His substitutionary death on the cross. We therefore call upon you who are Christian to rally at the cross this advent season and leave the crowd to celebrate the manger. May the coming weeks be a time of meditation and worship at Calvary, and let us refuse to carry on with the world which is celebrating a Christmas without Christ. Let us make this Christmas season the occasion for remembering not His birth, but His death; not His birthday, but Him. Only two of the four Gospels write about His birth, but all tell us of His death on the cross of Calvary. Let us consider a fact we should know but never seem to remember as we should in this sea-son: “That while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” If we would really realize the treatment Jesus received at the hands of sinners, many Christians’ celebration would cease, the music would stop, the dancing would stop, a holy hush would settle upon us all. One of the things churches could do this Christmas is a communion service (Lord’s Supper). Many will say “we do that every Sunday anyway.” I don’t mean do it as a ritual, but do it as Jesus intended it to be. The Lord’s Supper is intended to be a memorial that was given, not to remind us of the birth, but what an infi-nite cost Jesus paid for our salvation. 1st Corinthians 11:24-25 commands us to “do this in remembrance of Me.” Again, let me say, remember His death, not His birth. It is so sad, especially in this season, that God’s own children forget about Him. Experiencing the Lord’s Supper this time of the year should shock us into realizing how much He loves us and how much He is willing to forgive us for our neglect. Everything that is important to God, the devil has tried to mess up. He took the birth of Christ and changed it into a party. He took baptism and changed it into a law. He took the resurrection and made it about commercial-ism and Easter eggs. He took the Lord’s Supper and made it a ritual. It’s all about remembering His death. So I call on you, when all the family and friends are together around the tree or the table, to pause and remem-ber the cross. Remember not the baby in the man-ger, but the Christ of the cross who gave His life for each of us. My hope is if enough Christians share the message of the cross in this season some will come to know Him as their personal savior. Let’s be safe and really remember the reason for the season! Refuse to celebrate a Christmas without Christ.Defending your faithT he Christians who were living in the regions of “Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia” (1 Peter 1:1) in the first century were suffering various kinds of persecutions because they were followers of Christ. Peter writes to encourage them to remain faithful regardless of what they must endure. Peter tells them they are blessed if they “suffer for the sake of righteousness” (1 Peter 3:14). He possibly uses a quote from Isaiah telling them to “not fear their [persecutor’s] intimidation, and do not be troubled” (1 Peter 3:14). Peter’s next statement is worth our meditation. Peter tells his readers “sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame” (1 Peter 3:15, 16). Peter seems to be saying to his readers that, instead of being intimi-dated, Christians should use the situation as an opportunity to tell people why Jesus is so important to them. One wonders as to whether or not Peter’s personality is coming out when he makes this state-ment for Christians not to be intimidated. Looking at his life in Scripture, Peter was not very often made afraid because of some-one’s threats. It also seems that Peter is telling his readers that they should not be afraid of the threats of their persecutors. Jesus had taught Peter and the other apostles that they should not “fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both body and soul in hell” (Matthew 10:28). Christians should not be afraid of persecution because of their faith but rather they should be will-ing to defend their faith. The idea that Peter wants his readers to grasp is rather unique. Instead of being afraid of their persecutor, Peter wants the Christians to attempt to give the persecutors some reasons why they should become Christians. Peter seems to be saying that the persecutors need to know why the Christian has such a “hope” in Jesus. Only a Peter would suggest using such an opportunity to “evangelize” another person. Sharing your reasons for your faith with your persecutors would be a strange site to see. They want to “slan-der” you and you are try-ing to do something good for them. They want to harm you and you are try-ing to give them reasons, which if they apply to their life, will “save” their life. Another thing which we may need to meditate upon is how much cour-age it will take to obey this command from Peter. What if the persecutor thinks the Christian is being a wise guy? What if the persecutor thinks the Christian is trying to make fun of him? What if the persecutor thinks the Christian has a “holier than thou attitude”? What if the persecutor thinks the Christian is trying to show how much Bible he knows? As a result of any of these thoughts, what if the persecutor makes life even more difficult for the Christian? Think about the confidence the Christian must have to make such a “defense” for his hope. The timid or weak in faith would not be able to make such a defense. Maybe this is the reason why Peter added the phrase “with gentleness and rev-erence” to this command. Remember, Peter said give this defense to “everyone” regardless of how they feel about us.

LAKE CITY REPORTER RELIGION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13 & 14, 2013 7A7AReligion The Lord’s Supper: It’s ok to cryR odney is from Puerto Rico. He sat several rows behind us in the assembly. The worship had gone as planned until the Lord’s Supper. A few appropriate words were spoken about the sacrifice of Jesus for the sins of the world, a prayer was given for the bread and the grape juice soon to be passed and individually partaken of. All was silent except for the movement of those passing the emblems, and the soft sound of the electric piano, playing a reverent tune. Then it happened: Rodney began to cry. His heart was broken and he wept loudly and could not stop. I don’t know what others thought, but I remem-bered the times when I quietly cried during the Supper, and maybe you remember doing the same. Why did he cry? After the services were over, I went to him, introduced myself, and asked him what happened, although it was not hard to figure out. He said, “I was think-ing of how much He suf-fered just for me. Jesus died for me.” We live in a time when tears and feelings are held back in church. Yes, we cry when things happen to us, like the terrible devastation of a hurricane or tornado, or wild fire that wipes out our home or family. We cry for joy over birth, and sadness at death. We all cry over different things, but how many tears are shed over the sacrifice of Jesus? One time a mother and child went to church and during the Lord’s Supper, the young child began to cry when they spoke of the death of Jesus. The young mother was embar-rassed because others were looking with faces that said, “Keep your child quiet!” She leaned over and whispered to her child, “Shhh… It’s ok, don’t take it so seriously.” Perhaps this has been the problem all along. Perhaps this is the reason why so many who claim to be Christians, don’t reflect the life of Christ. Perhaps this is why so many non-Christians won’t listen to the message of Jesus. Matthew records how Jesus had been betrayed by Judas, deserted by his disciples, arrested and put on trial. Peter finds himself in the courtyard. A servant girl comes along and says to him, “You also were with Jesus of Galilee” and Peter says, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Then he went out to the gateway, and another girl came up and said to the people, “This fellow was with Jesus of Nazareth.” Peter replies (with an oath), “I don’t know the man.” Then again people said, “Surely you are one of them, for your accent gives you away.” “Then he began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, “I don’t know the man!” (Matthew 26:69-74). Luke records, “Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remem-bered the word the Lord had spoken to him. And he went outside and wept bitterly” (Luke 22:60-62). Lord, help us to take this more seriously. Jack Exum Jr. Q Jack Exum Jr. is a freelance writer who lives in Lake City.

The poem tells of Longfellow’s experience of hearing the church bells on Christmas day as they rang out “peace on earth, good will to men” during the darkest period of the Civil War. Still months away from Lee’s surrender to Grant at the Appomattox Courthouse, and grieving the tragic death of his wife Fanny and the crippling war injury of his son Charles, Longfellow penned the second stanza of the poem, “And in despair I bowed my head/There is no peace on earth I said/For hate is strong and mocks the song/Of peace on earth, good will to men.” If that were the last verse in the song, it would indeed pronounce a bleak Christmas, not unlike how many may be feeling this year. Peace on earth and good will to men doesn’t seem the prevalent theme to many facing unemploy-ment, economic downturns, families separated by miles, death or divorce, and the uncertainty of the future. Yet, it was in his despair that Longfellow then heard the bells ring “more loud and deep” pro-claiming “God is not dead, nor doth He sleep/The wrong shall fail, the right prevail/With peace on earth, good will to men.” We need to be reminded of this truth during the Christmas season and per-haps we never see more clearly that when the trim-mings are stripped away. My family has joined the ranks of many this season who are “scaling back” on our Christmas shop-ping and giving more to those in need; and yet the simplicity of this kind of Christmas really points us back to the baby in a man-ger some 2000 years ago. Angels themselves sang the carols and invited a field full of shepherds who probably smelled a tad too much like their sheep, to celebrate the very first Christmas. This baby who was foretold hundreds of years before, in the great-est of detail: “For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given and the govern-ment shall be on his shoul-ders and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 reminds us that indeed God is not dead, nor does He sleep. He left heaven to come to earth, all because our hearts really do matter. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” HEART MATTERS Angie Q Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences, and offers bibli cal counseling to individuals, couples and families. Seventh-day Adventist Churchcelebrates 75 years of service COURTESYFrom staff reportsThe Seventh-day Adventist Church was born out of the Great Awakening, related to the Millerite movement of the 1840s when thousands of Christians searched for greater understanding of biblical prophecy. Among these believers was a group in New England that rediscovered the seventh-day Sabbath. They chose the name “Seventh-day” which refers to the biblical Sabbath, Saturday, ordained by God at Creation. “Adventist” means we’re looking for the return of Jesus Christ. In 1863, the new Sabbath keepers officially organized into a denomination with 3,500 members worshipping in 125 churches. The church continued to grow and expand throughout North America. In 1938, a small group of believers began to meet, and established the first Seventh-day Adventist Church Company in Lake City. The group of believers had a mission to evangelize the Lake City community and was officially voted by the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Executive Committee as a church on February 13, 1950. The founding mem-bers were Clarence and Melba Tice, Ms. Eula Markham, Ms. Nora Young, and Ms. Zola Blanton. Today, the Lake City Seventh-day Adventist Church celebrates 5 years in their new location at 148 SW Seminole Terrace, Lake City, Florida 32024 and over 75 years of service in the Lake City community. Historic label, religion collideBy CURT ANDERSONAP Legal Affairs WriterSUNNY ISLES BEACH — A simple, five-para-graph historic plaque on the front portico of an Orthodox Jewish temple in south Florida hon-ors a 2004 gathering of Holocaust survivors, but it signifies much more. It’s the linchpin of a federal court battle pitting a city’s powers to designate his-toric buildings against the free exercise of religion. The case of Temple B’nai Zion v. City of Sunny Isles Beach and its mayor, Norman Edelcup, makes claims of religious dis-crimination, government harassment and interfer-ence with property rights. The temple’s president, Rabbi Aaron Lankry, wants to modify the structure — formerly a Lutheran church — to more prop-erly befit an Orthodox Jewish congregation. The temple’s lawsuit contends that the city conjured up the historic designation as a pretext to improperly prevent any changes to the temple. And, the lawsuit contends, much of the problem stems from a personal dispute between Lankry, Edelcup and other Jewish members of the city commission who left the temple after he arrived in 2004 as it moved from Conservative to the more strictly obser-vant Orthodox Judaism. Caught in the middle is a separate Orthodox congre-gation, Beit Rambam, which also worships at the temple and has no issues with the historic designation. B’nai Zion has filed a separate law-suit against that congrega-tion, claiming it is violating terms of its lease. The main case was originally dismissed by a Miami federal judge, but the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this year overturned that ruling. The appeals judges sent the case back for a decision on the temple’s claim that the city historic designation was done for discriminatory reasons and interferes with the congregation’s religious practices. The case is one of several brought by religious organizations challenging local laws and ordinances around the country under a 2000 federal law known as the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. The law bars state and local gov-ernments from imposing a “substantial burden” through land use regula-tions on the free exercise of religion, unless the gov-ernment can show it has a compelling interest. The U.S. Supreme Court has never defined “sub-stantial burden” in these types of cases, leading to different rulings in differ-ent parts of the country. In South Florida, B’nai Zion attorney Daniel Wallach said Lankry has one overarching goal in pursuing the lawsuit, orig-inally filed in 2010. “He wants the historic designation removed from the property. It inhibits the temple’s growth. It reduces the value of the property,” Wallach said. “That is a burden on his property rights.” Former Miami U.S. Attorney Kendall Coffey, who represents Sunny Isles Beach and its mayor, said rather than religious freedom, the major con-cern of B’nai Zion is how the historic designation affects the property’s value. Coffey noted that Edelcup and several other city officials involved in the decision are also Jewish. “They are alleging antiJewish discrimination on the part of public officials, the vast majority of whom are Jewish,” Coffey said. “It’s far-fetched, although the plaintiff (B’nai Zion) has an obvious financial motive.” Ask about ‘outsiders’ — part 4 in a 5-part seriesBy DAVID MATTHISAP Religion WriterLast week we discussed “appreciating outsiders,” and how our conduct can positively or negatively persuade people about Christ. What they think about us is more important than we may under-stand.Ask about outsidersPerhaps the place where this strange concern for outsiders catches us most off guard is the grand finale of the elder qualifications in 1 Timothy 3:1–7. In verse 7, Paul echoes the first and overarching qualification (“an overseer must be above reproach,” 1 Timothy 3:2; Titus 1:7) by fleshing it out like this: the elder “must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil” (1 Timothy 3:7). Why this unex-pected charge? Philip Towner comments, “Paul’s ultimate motive is missionary in thrust. . [I]t is the threat to the evange-listic mandate that would follow from the church falling into disgrace.” The church is right where Satan wants her when the elders are disgraced among outsiders. Why? Because the devil wants to keep outsiders from the gospel. He wants them to stay as “out-siders” by bringing reproach on the church’s message through reproach on the church’s leaders. Satan loves it when Christian leaders, of all people, give outsiders just cause for disgust. It’s one thing to be a fool for Jesus, but it’s quite another to be foolish just as much on heaven’s terms as the world’s.

CHS continued on 8B Tigers tie Taylor County By BRANDON FINLEY Columbia High rallied for a 2-2 tie against Taylor County High after trailing by two goals at the half on Thursday. After two goals by the Bulldogs in the final two minutes of the first half, the Tigers took control in the second half to pull out the tie. Kyle Richardson scored both goals for the Tigers with Tim Bagley earning an assist. The first 38 minutes was about as good as weve played all year, Columbia head coach Trevor Tyler said. A lack of energy over the final two minutes resulted in two goals, but we came back to play the best 40 minutes we have all season. Richardson played a heck of a game. He con trolled the back at stopper and pushed the ball up very well. Columbia fell, 6-1, against Leon High on Wednesday. The score was not a direct result of the Tigers play according to Tyler. Kaleb Rossignol scored the Tigers goal off an assist from Caleb Carswell. The guys were playing hard with tons of energy, Tyler said. The score was not indicative of their play. Leons first two goals were very good. We put a fresh man, Darren Brock, on him afterwards and were able to shut him down. We had it 2-1, but then we had an own goal and two penal ty kicks. So three of their goals, they didnt do much for. On our end, we had it a bunch of times inside the 18, so its promising what were doing. The Tigers travel to Lincoln High at 7 p.m. on Monday.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13 & 14, 2013 3B3BNASCAR Jeff Burton’s future plans, both on and off the track, were announced last week. He’ll start by running some test sessions and a limited Sprint Cup schedule for Michael Waltrip Racing, and he’ll begin working with NBC Sports Group, which has signed him to a multi-year contract to be an analyst when the network begins broadcasting NASCAR races in 2015. “Jeff Burton was always the first person we would seek out when there was breaking news or an issue that needed to be covered throughout our previous contract with NASCAR, so he was the first person we called for this role,” Sam Flood, executive producer, NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network, said in announcing the hir-ing of Burton. “His insights, keen observations and many trophies have earned the respect of everyone involved with the sport.” Burton will begin his TV work in 2014 by contributing to NASCAR programming on NBCSN. “This is an exciting new challenge, and I am thrilled to be joining the NBC Sports family,” said Burton. “I will prepare for each race as if I were driving in it, and I look forward to sharing my experience, views and insights with all the dedicated and passion-ate NASCAR fans.” On the driving side, his first stint behind the wheel with his new team is set for Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he’ll substitute at a test session for Brian Vickers, who is out of action because of blood clots. Burton will make his first start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 9 in a No. 66 Toyota and is expected to make several more starts in 2014. “Michael Waltrip Racing has two teams and drivers racing for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship in 2014, and our third team will play a very important role in that pursuit,” team co-owner Rob Kauffman said in announcing the addition of Burton to the team he operates with Michael Waltrip. “We were extremely fortunate to have a driver as experienced and respected as Jeff Burton come available. He will be able to have an immediate impact as we continue to strive for that last 1 percent that separates cham-pions from contenders.” Waltrip will drive the No. 66 in the seasonopening Daytona 500 on Feb. 23. In his full-time NASCAR career, Burton made 691 Cup starts, with 21 wins, the most recent coming in 2008 when he won twice. On the Nationwide side, he has 306 career starts, with 27 wins, but none since 2007, when he won five times. He will be joined in the NBC TV booth by new lead announcer Rick Allen, who now works as Fox Sports’ race announcer for NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series and the ARCA Racing Series. Jimmie Johnson, the 2013 Sprint Cup champion and six-time Cup winner, was front and center for many of the festivities at last week’s annual Sprint Cup Se ries Champion’s Week in Las Vegas. But the driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet at Hendrick Motorsports wasn’t the onl y one honored. Tony Stewart received the 2013 Myers Brothers Award from the National Motorsports Press Association not only for his work as a driver, team owner and track prom oter, but also for the good works he does behind the scen es. “The stories of our winner’s big heart have gotten around — much to his dismay, I’m sure,” NMPA President Ken ny Bruce said in announcing the Myers Brothers winner. “Trust me, they’re endless.” Stewart seemed somewhat taken aback by the award fr om a group whose members have at times in years past found themselves at odds wit h him. “This is crazy,” Stewart said. “What an honor. It’s very humbling.” Among the accomplishments cited was Stewart’s work to bring a major-league NASCAR circuit back to the dirt-racing world with the inau gural Mudsummer Classic for the Camping World Truck Series at his Eldora Speedway i n Ohio. But, he said that NASCAR’s senior vice president of racing operations, Steve O’Donnell, and Eldora Speedway manager Roger Slack, deserved m uch of the credit for the success of the event. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was back on stage for the 11th s traight year as winner of the Most Popular Driver Award. The NMPA reported that more t han 1 million votes were cast, with Earnhardt taking more than 700,000 of them. “This year we feel like we were giving them a lot t o cheer for on the race track and paying them back for all the years they’ve voted for u s to win this award,” Earnhardt said. Kasey Kahne finished second in the balloting, ahead of Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards. The all-time winner of the Most Popular Driver Awar d is Bill Elliott, who won it 16 times. “I don’t really keep track of the stats or the scor e, but Bill was a great driver and ambassador for the sport,” Earnhardt said. “He represent s the sport really well to this day, as does his son, Chase, who’s coming up and carrying on the family name. But, I’ve always looked up to Bill as a driver, so it’s pretty neat.” NASCAR drivers weren’t the only ones being honored in Las Vegas. Don Post, chairman of the March of Dimes Kansas City chapter’s “Bikers for Babies” motorcycle ride, received the third annual Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award. “Don Post is a hero, pure and simple,” said Mrs. France, who is chair of the NASCAR Foundation. “We have so much respect for his accomplishments in the face of personal adversity, along with his commitment to helping chil-dren who face their own adversity. “His story is inspiring and truly personifies what our award is all about.” In 1980, Post was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. He retired from his job and has spent the years since working for various charities. A $100,000 donation from the NASCAR Foundation goes to the March of Dimes, and Post gets a 2014 Chevrolet SS.Josh Wise moves to Phil Parsons RacingJosh Wise has been hired to drive the No. 98 Chevrolet for Phil Parsons Racing in 2014.

Even those who were just casual fans of the sport at that time were heartbroken over the death that day of 20-year-old Randy Owens. Owens was the brother-in-law of Richard Petty. His sister, Lynda, Richard’s wife, had helped raise him while their mother worked, and he was an eager member of the crew of Petty’s No. 43 cars. On Lap 141 of the Winston 500, Petty, in contention for the win, came down pit road with a fire in the left front of his car. As Owens attempted to use a pressurized water tank to help extin-guish the flames, the tank exploded, sending Owens flying into the air and killing him. Petty, who jumped from his car and attempted to get help for Owens, summed up one of the saddest aspects of the incident in his comments to reporters that day. “He was just a kid and had those two little, bitty boys,” Petty said. Last week, the story came full circle when Trent Owens, the youngest of those little, bitty boys, was hired as crew chief of the No. 43 Ford at Richard Petty Motorsports. The official release announcing the hiring of Owens didn’t even men-tion that Owens is the nephew of the team’s namesake. And Owens doesn’t bring up the subject unless he’s asked about it. But when he does talk about his family, it’s clear that he’s proud of the connection. Owens said that when he was hired to crew chief the car his father once worked on, it was a special moment. “When the opportunity came up, and then when the announcement was made, I was pretty emotional about it,” said Owens, who was just four months old when his father died. His brother, Travis, now the brake specialist for the No. 31 Chevrolet at Richard Childress Racing, was two at the time. The Owens brothers, who spent most of their younger years living in Darlington, S.C., remained close to Richard and Lynda Petty as they grew up. They went to races at Darlington, Rockingham and Martinsville with the Pettys. In the sum-mertime, the Pettys would pick up the boys and take them to Daytona for the July Cup races. It was during one of those trips that young Trent Owens witnessed one of NASCAR’s greatest moments. “My aunt and uncle took us to Daytona, and we got to be there for his 200th win,” Owens said, adding that he still cherished the Victory Lane photos that show him standing in front of the car holding the checkered flag. By the time he was a teenager, Owens was spend-ing his summers in North Carolina with the Pettys and working in the family race shop. “I made money for school for the next year,” he said. And his Aunt Lynda told him stories of the father he never knew. “She made me well aware of my dad’s ambitions,” he said. Eddie Wood, a member of the Wood Brothers racing team of Stuart, Va., was about the same age as Randy Owens and knew him back in the day. Then as now, the Woods and the Pettys were big rivals, but also great friends. “Randy worked with [Petty Enterprises crew chief] Dale Inman, just like my brother Len and I worked with our Uncle Leonard,” Wood said. “Randy was a go-getter, and from what I can tell, Trent is cut from the same cloth.” Trent Owens started his major league NASCAR career as a driver, running 12 races in the Camping World Truck Series before deciding that his true calling was on top of the pit box as a crew chief. He’s worked with a host of drivers over the years, winning five Nationwide Series races with five different drivers. He spent the past season working with Kyle Larson, and his move to the No. 43 and driver Aric Almirola is his first full-time foray into the elite Sprint Cup Series. Owens said that his career as a crew chief has been helped by his driving experience and by working with various Sprint Cup drivers over the years. “Having driven in the past, I can understand quicker what a driver is telling me about the car,” he said. “And working with Cup drivers has taught me a lot in a hurry.” He said his goal is to try to make the No. 43 team into a consistent top-15 or top-10 outfit and to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “If we can be around the top 10 by the beginning of the summer, we’ve got a possibility of making the Chase,” he said. “And if we can run in the top five, we’ve got a chance to win a race.” One thing Owens knows for sure is that his new boss — his uncle — is not only NASCAR’s all-time win leader as a driver — with 200 victories — but also one of the most knowledgeable people in the garage today. “There’s no fooling him,” Owens said. “He’s sharp when it comes to race cars and the people that work on them. And he’s so good at life skills in general. “He’s a stern boss, but he’s a good boss. I’m happy to get this opportunity, and I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with it.” Trent Owens (left) served as crew chief for Kyle Larson’s team in the Nationwide Series in 2013.Trent Owens’ career comes full circle as he moves to Sprint Cup as a crew chief for 2014 seasonTrophies and honors abound at 2013 Sprint Cup Champ ion’s Week in Las VegasJeff Burton NOTEBOOK Trent Owens Jeff Burton’s onand off-track plans announced for 2014 season and beyond Dale Earnhardt Jr. was voted Most Popular Driver for the 11th year in a row.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13-14, 2013 DEAR ABBY: My 17year-old daughter, “Erica,” is planning to marry her 24-year-old boyfriend. I use the term “boyfriend” loosely because their rela-tionship consists entirely of texting, talking on the phone and the Internet. There has been no dating or getting to know each other in person. Erica is intent on marrying this man even though he has lied to her several times in addition to having lied to us. She is planning to attend a four-year college. I’m not sure how to handle this. She hid the rela-tionship from us for more than six months. I realize Erica needs to make her own mistakes, but I’m not sure how to make her understand my very real concern about this. I have raised other children who went through various phases of teenage rebellion, but we were able to reach a general compromise on all types of behavior. However, she is unwilling to discuss the possibility of waiting. Any advice would be appreci-ated. — NEEDS HELP DEAR NEEDS HELP: If Erica were my daughter, I’d suggest that because this relationship is so seri-ous it’s time you both paid a visit to her intended. Assuming her father is in the picture, he should be there, too. The subject of who will be paying for col-lege should be discussed, and whether Erica will be able to continue her education if she should become pregnant. It may give her a glimpse of exactly what she’s getting herself into for BEFORE the wedding. Of course the three of you will want to meet as many of his family and friends as possible. Because Erica won’t lis-ten to reason, perhaps SEEING will bring her back down to earth. This will also give you (all) a chance to find out what else her “boyfriend” may have been lying about, including his age.Father abuses family pet DEAR ABBY: What do I do about my husband’s cruelty to our cat? My children love “Miss Kitty,” but their dad kicks her and terrorizes the poor little thing to the point where I don’t think I can protect her any longer, especially when I’m not home. I have told the kids that Dad is wrong and not to be like him, but I’m afraid eventually they may think it’s OK to mistreat ani-mals. What should I do? — ANIMAL LOVER DEAR ANIMAL LOVER: Find Miss Kitty a good home ASAP! Your husband appears to have sociopathic tendencies. Does he exhibit them in any other ways? A man who mistreats animals might also abuse children if they should get in his way or he is in a bad mood. Of course, your children will be upset when you give their beloved pet away. Explain that it had to be done because she wasn’t safe around their father.Gift registries now for Christmas DEAR ABBY: My sister informed me today that her children have registered at Toys R Us, and has instructed me to purchase only the toys on their registry for Christmas! Apparently, this is the new way to shop. Abby, I have never told anyone what to buy my kids, and I’m appalled by this new idea of a Christmas registry. I try very hard to buy great Christmas gifts that my loved ones will enjoy. Am I wrong to think this is rude? — APPALLED SHOPPER DEAR APPALLED: I agree your sister’s request is presumptuous. But I suppose a Christmas registry is a natural pro-gression from wedding and baby registries. There wouldn’t be a Toys R Us registry if it wasn’t a suc-cessful sales tool for peo-ple who don’t like to shop. Because you are not one of them, and Christmas shopping brings you plea-sure, I suggest you do as you wish. P.S. Let’s see how Sissy responds when you let her know you have adopted her idea and will register at Tiffany’s on your next birthday.Daughter’s doubts upset parents DEAR ABBY: I’m 16 and come from a devout Roman Catholic family. My parents have taken my brother and me to church every Sunday without fail my entire life. We pray before meals, before school, at bedtime and at other times every day. My room is filled with reli-gious objects. As far as I know, everyone else in my extended family is equally fervent. My problem is, I have never felt very religious. Since I was 10 I’ve started to relate more to an agnostic view of life. When I told my parents, at first they were angry and disappointed. Then they told me I was “just going through a phase.” I know this is more than a phase. It’s a personal belief of mine they have been try-ing to bury my entire life. I can’t continue letting them ignore the real me. The stress of constantly having to lie to my par-ents about my faith is tearing me apart to the point that it interferes with my schoolwork and social life. How can I con-vince them that this isn’t a phase, and that I’m not the Catholic girl they want me to be? If they continue to refuse to acknowledge my religious beliefs, who can I turn to for sup-port? — AGNOSTIC IN STOCKTON, CALIF. DEAR AGNOSTIC: Your parents should not have minimized your feel-ings by saying they are only a phase because it was dismissive. That said, you must not allow their devout faith -and your lack of it -to become a contest of wills or a basis for argument. This is an important time in your life with your parents as you enter adulthood. Thank them for the great foundation they have given you. Tell them you hope they will continue to love you as you explore what your beliefs are on this spiritual journey -because it IS a journey. The opposite of faith is not doubt; it is certainty. Bride-to-be hates dress shopping DEAR ABBY: I’m getting married next year. I am very excited to be marrying my fiance, a kind and caring man. But I am not at all excited to go dress shop-ping. What should I do? — NO-FRILLS GIRL IN DAYTON, OHIO DEAR NO-FRILLS GIRL: No law says you must go dress shopping for your wedding if you don’t want to. Tailor your wed-ding to your own tastes, and make it simple and casual. It’s your day, so do what feels right for you. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Make an effort and enforce change that will help you begin the year on a positive note.

An interesting proposi-tion will cross your path. You’ll find a way to take advantage of what’s being offered. ++++ Happy Birthday: Travel about and engage in networking functions and talks that can help you reach your goals. Making a move that is conducive to finding a better job or being closer to friends, fam-ily or those who can help you advance should be con-sidered. Shake things up and make things happen.

HEISMAN: Winston leads finalists Continued From Page 1B COURTESY PHOTO Championship winners Lauren Hutcherson, Lucy Giebeig, Story Giebeig and Whitney Lee, students at Lake City Middle School and their teammates from the 12U Fastpitch softball team won the ASA State Championship this past weekend. Picture are (front row, from left) are Lucy Giebeig, Emily Barras, Hutcherson, Whitney Lee and Adrianna Saavedra. Middle row (from left) are Story Giebeig, Kylee Barry, Hannah Foster, Hallie Bryant, Savannah Channel and Bryn Thomas. Back row (from left) are coach Todd Bryant, coach Megan Ryan, coach Keith Foster, and coach Jeremy McFadyen. Not pictured is coach Drue Barry. Northern Illinois Jordan Lynch, Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel, Alabamas AJ McCarron, Auburns Tre Mason and Boston Colleges Andre Williams. Six finalists invited to New York for the presen tation are the most since 1994. The winner will be announced Saturday night. Winston is the over whelming favorite to win the award now that a sexual assault complaint against him in Tallahassee, Fla., has been closed without charges being filed. He could also become the second freshman to win the award. Manziel was the first just last year. Famous Jameis, like Johnny Football last season, is a redshirt freshman. While Winston was a lock to be invited, the rest of the field was muddled. Some contenders had late stumbles (Manziel and Lynch), others (Mason and Williams) made late runs. Manziel will try to join another exclusive Heisman club by becoming the sec ond player to win the award twice. Ohio States Archie Griffin won the award in 1974 and The Aggies quarterback is third in the nation in total offense with 368 yards per game. Lynch led No. 24 Northern Illinois (12-1) to within a victory of a BCS bid and has set the major college record for yards rushing for a quarterback this season with 1,815. He also tweeted that he was a finalist about five min utes before the official announcement was made on ESPN by 1996 winner Danny Wuerffel. NYC here I come!! Thanks to the coaches teammates and media rela tion couldnt of did it wt out them! the record-setting senior posted. McCarron completed 67 percent of his passes for 2,676 yards and 26 touch downs for the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide (11-1). This will be my first trip to New York City, and I cant put into words how much it means to me, McCarron said in a statement released by the school. I am truly privileged to have the oppor tunity to represent our team at the Heisman ceremony. None of this would be pos sible without my coaches and teammates. Mason helped No. 2 Auburn reach the BCS title game, running for 304 yards and four TDs in the SEC championship game. He is ninth in the country in rushing (124 ypg). When I heard the news, I was in disbelief, Mason said in a statement. For me to be invited to the Heisman ceremony, I am honored and blessed. I couldnt have done it without my team mates; this is an honor for all of them also. Williams is the nations leading rusher at 175 yards per game and the 16th play er in FBS to run for 2,000 yards in a season. Winstons arrival as Florida States starting quarterback was being touted as a major event in the spring and he has surpassed the hype. The Alabama native is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Winstons only issues have come off the field. About a month ago, a yearold sexual assault com plaint against him made by a female Florida State student was given by police to the state attorneys office for a full investigation. A woman claimed Winston raped her. Winstons lawyer said the sex was consen sual. Winston continued to play, and play well, during the investigation. Last week, the state attorney announced there would be no charges filed in the case, and two days later Winston threw for three touchdown passes and ran for a score as No. 1 Florida State won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game 45-7 against Duke and wrapped up a spot in the BCS title game. In the latest straw poll released Monday by, which has correctly predicted the last seven winners, Winston received seven of the 10 first-place votes and 26 points to easily outdistance Lynch (eight points and two first-place votes). All six finalists are expect ed to attend the ceremony, which would match for the most in Heisman his tory. That season Colorado tailback Rashaan Salaam won the Heisman, and Penn States Ki-Jana Carter and Kerry Collins, along with Alcorn States Steve McNair, Alabamas Jay Barker and Miamis Warren Sapp were finalists. In 1989, eight players were invited to the ceremo ny, but only four attended. Among the missing was Houstons Andre Ware, who won the award but was preparing for a game.
