Parties agree to
'five-year interlocal
stormwater pact.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County officials
have agreed to participate in a
partnership with the
Suwannee River Water
Management District that will
use up to $10 million to
address the county's
stormwater issues.
During a special county
commission meeting on
Thursday night, county offi-
cials unanimously agreed to
sign a five-year interlocal
agreement with the water
management district in an
attempt to curb stormwater
problems.
"We were looking for a
cost-share with the county up
to $1 million a year of water
management district funds to
be matched with the county's
$1 million to solve stormwa-
ter problems," said David
Still, Suwannee River Water
Management District deputy
executive director. "We gave
that option to the county for
five years for a total between
the two agencies of $10 mil-
lion to solve the most severe
flooding problems."
The county's staff and
water management district
personnel have done a joint
stormwater study and com-
prised a list of priority flood-
ing areas that would be
worked on as a result of the
agreement.
I "We feel that with the hur-
ricanes of two years ago, and
as new developments come
on, there's probably addition-
al flooding that needs to be
addressed," Still said. "If that
group of priorities stays the
same, that's good, but if it
changes, that's up to the
county. We're not going to set
the priorities for the county;
we're just aiding them in

The Lake City Correctional Facility

members of the community were able to
hear about new programs and updates at
the facility.
"Many times it is difficult to come into
a new place and be in charge," said Lake
City Correctional Facility Warden Willie
Ruffin. "People may still be friends and
respect the warden before me, but these
people here are 100 percent loyal to me
and that means a lot."
Ruffin became the warden of the

Currently there are 97 inmates in the

with drug and alcohol addictions, helps
inmates change their mentality and

Huge turnout as
Iraqi voters choose
new parliament.
By ROBERT H. REID
Associated Press
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Millions
of Iraqis, from tribal sheiks to
entire families with' children in
tow, turned out Thursday to
choose a parliament in a mostly
peaceful election - among the
freest ever in the Arab world.
So many Sunni Arabs voted
that ballots ran out in some
places. The strong participation
by Sunnis, the backbone of
the insurgency, bolstered
U.S. hopes that the election
could produce a broad-based
government capable of ending
the daily suicide attacks and
other violence that have
ravaged the country since the
fall of Saddam Hussein.
Difficult times lie ahead,
however. The coalition of reli-
gious Shiite parties that domi-
nates the current government
is expected to win the biggest
portion of the 275 seats, but will
almost certainly need to com-
promise with rival factions, with

Police arrest eight
in Cuban cigar ring
MIAMI - Police seized
more than $100,000 worth of
counterfeit Cuban cigars and
packaging paraphernalia, and
arrested eight people who
allegedly took part in the
scheme that likely raked in
millions of dollars.
The operation, dubbed
"Operation Smoke Ring," was
the culmination of a
six-month investigation, said
Miami-Dade police said.
Inefensive cigars were
allege ly labeled and
repackaged to look like
handmade premium Cuban
cigars and then sold locally
and around the country. The
sale of Cuban cigars is
prohibited in the United
States, police said.
Police said the raids on
nine different locations
including homes and
businesses uncovered an
elaborate counterfeiting
operation.
"They had the bands, they
had the cigar boxes, they had
everything," said Nelda
Fonticiella, Miami-Dade
police spokeswoman. "It was
a network-type operation.

Supreme Court
upholds evidence
TALLAHASSEE -
Evidence found without a
search warrant while police
were looking for the parents
of a lost child can be used in a
drug trial, the Florida
Supreme Court ruled
Thursday.
The justices unanimously
agreed that it was
"reasonable" for Polk County
Sheriff's deputies to enter a
Mulberry apartment with it's
door ajar after no one
responded to repeated
knocking, leading them to
fear the 4-year-old girl's
caretaker may have had a
medical emergency. The girl
had been found wandering
outside alone, disoriented and
naked in the middle of winter.

Once inside the apartment
they spotted seven potted
marijuana plants and some
marijuana seeds and found
Norris Riggs Jr. with the girl's
baby sitter. Riggs was
charged with manufacturing
cannabis and possessing drug
paraphernalia.
A trial judge suppressed
the evidence on grounds that
the deputies had violated
Riggs' right under the U.S.
Constitution to be free of
"unreasonable" searches.
That decision was reversed
by the 2nd District Court of
Appeal in Lakeland. The
Supreme Court upheld the
appellate ruling, which
conflicted with a 1989
decision by the 1st District
Court of Appeal in
Tallahassee in a nearly
identical case.

Bypass malpra ice
change considered
TALLAHASSEE-The
state Supreme Court has
asked the Florida Bar to draft
rules that would allow lawyers
to continue bypassing a state
constitutional amendment
limiting contingency fees in
medical malpractice cases.
The justices have not made
a final decision on the issue,
but Wednesday unanimously
ordered the bar to propose a
procedure for clients to waive
the fee limitations.
The amendment, approved
by voters last year, was
pushed by the Florida Medical
Association as a way to reduce
malpractice costs. It limits
lawyers to no more than
30 percent of the first $250,000
of an award and 10 percent of
anything above that amount.
Lawyers have been avoiding
the limits by getting clients to
sign waivers of their rights
under the amendment
The medical association
responded by asking the
Supreme Court to adopt a
professional rule that would
require lawyers to abide by
the amendment's limits.

a 2001 conviction that was

A' Columbia County jury
acquitted Womack of the four
charges. Circuit Judge Paul
Bryan presided over the case.

has spoken, and although we
felt we presented enough evi-
dence, the jury didn't think
so. This is our system and
we'll honor their decision."

ney with offices in Gainesville

DOT open house draws crowd


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

More than 40 people
attended a Florida
Department of
Transportation open house.
Thursday that detailed the
progress of the State Road
47 widening project.
Gina Busscher,
Department of
Transportation public infor-
mation officer, said the open
house went well.,
"We wanted to get the word
out," she said of the two-hour'
session. "We wanted to, get,
the people here that were
affected by the construction,
or people who just drive by
everyday and don't live near
here, and I think that was
accomplished. We had a good
turnout."
LaNita Bishop was one of
many local residents who
attended the open house to
learn more about the project:
and how it would affect ,her.
neighborhood.
"It really hasn't been. bad,"
she said of the project. "We've
been really surprised at how
well the traffic has flowed.
The biggest thing is that
when we come out of our sub-
division, we have to stop and
be sure there are no construc-
tion vehicles going back and
forth and then stopping again
when we get to the roadway.
This has really gone a lot
better than I anticipated."
She said her husband is
retired from the DOT design
department and he normally
walks on the sidewalk to look
at the construction, so they


wanted to attend the open
house to see the other plans
for the project. She 'said they
like the concept for the new
roadway.
"I'll be delighted when it's
completed because we'll have
the sidewalks that we can ride
bikes on and walk on and
utilize that part of it as well as
having a much nicer road to
travel on," she said. "The
traffic oout here has' gotten a
lot. heavier than when we
moved in here about 25 years
ago."',
Busscher said the next big
phase of the project will be
the traffic switch, where the
traffic from the existing two
lanes will be shifted to the
newly constructed south-
bound lanes, from south of
Business Point Drive up to
somewhere near the Bingo
Station.
"We plan to do the shift
before Christmas," she said:
"We know they are going to
shut down the job and can't
work after Dec. 24, so they
have up toDec. 23."
The construction workers
are shifting the lanes because
of a need to reconstruct the
existing northbound lanes for
travel, continued work on con-
necting drainage pipes and
. work on curb and sidewalks:
on each side of the road.
Busscher cautioned drivers
who use the roadway to drive
safely on the shifted lanes.
"People just need -to be
cautious, look for the signs,
look for the flaggers and
when workers do that traffic
_switch, where they are put-
ting some temporary

pavement down to switch
from one side to the other, it
will be at a slower speed limit,
so drivers definitely need to
slow down," she said.
Off-duty law enforcement
officers will continue to
monitor. speeds in the area
and ticket drivers who are
traveling above 45 mph on the
main line of the road.
To aid in the safety efforts,
street lights will be turned on
in the southbound lanes to
illuminate the road.
"City of Lake City and
Columbia County commis-
sioners have agreed to pay
the costs of the -streetlights
even though the project isn't
finished, because it will help
make the whole corridor
safer," she said. "When we
switch the traffic over, they


will turn on the streetlights on
the western side of the road,
so they will illuminate the
roadway to let everyone be
aware of the side streets and
where they need to turn and
let them ,get down the
corridor a little it easier."
The project, which is slated
to be completed by January
2007, is being done to handle
increased traffic volume in
the area.
"We had crashes - namely,.
rear-end crashes - with peo-
ple stopping to turn," she
said, also noting other factors
like growth in the area con-
tributed to the need for the
project. "It's a lot of different
factors, but mainly because of
the traffic volume and .the
projected growth that will be
occurring in the area."


New voter registration will avoid felon list errors


By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - A new
statewide voter registration
system will include more
information and extensive
,background checks to avoid
!problems that have plagued
past attempts to purge convict-
ed felons from voting rolls,
Florida elections officials said
Thursday.
The system, set to go into
effect Jan. 3, will use driver
license data including photos,
Social Security numbers and
crime, prison, court and
clemency records to
determine eligibility.
'"We're not going to risk one
eligible voter losing his
rights," said Acting Secretary
of State David Mann.
That intense scrutiny will
apply only to newly registered
voters, people .who change
their registration and felons
convicted after Jan. 3.
Everyone else automatically

will be transferred into the
new system.
For the average voter
nothing will change, Mann
said.
The statewide system,
replacing separate registra-
tion rolls in each of Florida's
67 counties, will bring the
state into compliance with the
Federal Help America Act, or'
HAVA.
The state in 2000 and 2004
distributed flawed felon lists
including people never
convicted of such crimes or
whose voting rights had been
restored to elections supervi-
sors for use in purging their
rolls. The Department of State
wound up tossing out the 2004
list because of the inaccura-
cies.
In response, a proposed
state constitutional amend-
ment on felons' voting rights
and an implementing bill have
been introduced for the

Arrests of


deviants is


first step

Six men were arrested last
week for lewd behavior and
exposure of sexual organs in
the men's bathroom of a
Lake City park where children
play and mothers take their infants for
walks in strollers. That such activities
occur in a public place is, in a word,
intolerable.
Police are to be commended for
acting on information that improper
activities were occurring at Young's
Park and conducting an undercover
operation that led to the arrests.
Continued vigilance is needed.
Lake City Police Chief David
Allbritton stated forcefully that such
activity will not be condoned in any
public park, especially those used most
frequently by children. He vowed to
"intensify our efforts in the future" if
the perpetrators or others inclined to
such behavior return to the park.
Long-time Lake Citians know that
groups of men who engage in lewd acts
have for years moved between Young's
Park and Lake Montgomery, choosing
their location based on where police
attention is less intense. We encourage
the police department to turn up the
heat so hot on these warped individuals
that they take themselves and their
lewd acts down the highway to a spot
far distant from the people of Lake City
and Columbia County.
All public spaces - in particular
those that attract our young people -
must be kept free of such persons.

COMMENTARY


Pinter is a moral moron


H arold Pinter does
not mind
equating George
W. Bush to Hitler
or the United
States to the collapsed Soviet
Union, and so I don't see why
I should mind pointing out
that Pinter is a moral moron.
The English playwright just
recently received the Nobel
Prize for Literature less
because of his art, apparently,
than because the Swedish
judges are addicted to
claptrap politics.of the, sort;he,
espouses. They seem intent i;'
on making their prizes in
non-technical categories more
a joke than something any
self-respecting person would
desire to win.
Pinter, it has been pointed
out, wrote his most praised
theater-of-the-absurd plays
years ago. He would scarcely
be attracting anyone's
attention these days if it
wasn't for a radicalism that
imitates those plays in their
absurdity.
In his Nobel acceptance
speech, for instance, he
likened the United States to
the Soviet Union during the
Cold War as if it were equally
genocidal and equally
oppressive. And America, he
said, is "more dangerous than
Nazi Germany."
We are responsible for
transgressions. During the
Cold War, we did support
dictatorial regimes in Latin
America and elsewhere that
were in some cases brutal, as
Pinter alleges. We should not
rush to make excuses for all
our acts. But let's do keep in
mind that the Cold War was a
war, that the enemy was
.almost always more brutal
and murderous than those we
supported, that victory in that
war was never a given, and
that much of what we did was
beneficent, such as giving aid
for the rebuilding of Europe.

Cubans should be allowed to play


mhe Treasury

has refused to
allow a Cuban team to enter

Classic this spring.

and its players union, the
sponsors of the event, envision
the Classic as a World Cup-
style tournament, played every
four years and featuring the
world's best national teams
and best players. More than
177 major leaguers are
expected to participate.
The reason for the ban on a

Still, go ahead, focus on the
worst of what we did, but then
put it next to Stalin's killing of
.5 million people during the
las~tseeWn years of.his life 4 [
Mao's killing of maybe
70 million people in China. .
Those numbers come from a
commentary on Pinter written
by Professor Niall Fergusson
of Harvard, who also points
out that "only a fool or fraud"
would compare American
prisons to the Soviet gulag.
Pinter says the two are pretty
much the same thing.
It takes something worse
than a fool or a fraud to ,
compare the United States to
Nazi Germany and Bush to
Hitler. There are so many
ways to demonstrate the
idiocy of this assertion that it
is almost impossible to know
where to start. But how about
with the treatment of
homosexuals? In this country,
some are upset because there*
is just one state that allows
gay marriages and one other
that allows gay civil unions. In
Nazi Germany, it was, shall
we say, worse? Homosexuals
were sent by the thousands to
concentration camps - and
thousands perished inside
them.
When it comes to Iraq,
Pinter goes from dumb to
dumber. To him, our being

Fidel Castro's regime.
Treasury should reconsider
and the organizers say they
will appeal.
The 16-team tournament will
be played in the United States,
Japan and Puerto Rico, where
Cuba is scheduled to play its
first two rounds. The
tournament has excited
baseball fans, not only because
of the fascinating match-ups -
China vs. Japan, the U.S. vs.
everybody else - but what it
will do for the sport
internationally.
At the worst, the ban on
Cuba, if it stands, might cause
other countries, Venezuela
possibly, to boycott the
tournament. At the best, the


tournament would have to be
redrawn so that Cuba plays its
rounds outside the United
States. We could be treated to
the spectacle of the United
States being unable to host the
international championship
game of its own national
pastime.
The only problem with
allowing a Cuban team into the
country is that its players
might defect, but that's really
Cuba's problem. Castro will
tell the Cuban people that the
U.S. ban on their team was not
out of principle, but out of fear
we'll be beaten.
To the rest of the world, the
ban makes the United States
look mean, petty and small-
minded. Let the Cubans play.

as a last resort - all other
justifications having failed to

liberation." The United States,
he says, is responsible for
"the death and mutilation of
thousands and thousands of
innocent people" there.
So despite the fact that
Saddam killed as many as
300,000 of his own people and
that we deposed him, and
despite the fact that the Iraqi
people have been risking
death by going to the polls in
.. extraordinary percentages,
*and despite the fact that our.
opponents there are
autocracy-advocating
terrorists killing mostly their
fellow Iraqis, and despite the
fact that the United States will
obviously get out of Iraq as
quickly as there is any hint of
stability, this whole idea of
liberation is a joke?
Pinter and the leftists like
him invariably grant
themselves a moral insight
that most of the rest of us
supposedly lack. They see
themselves as courageous
and superior. But most people
really can measure a wrong,
here against a wrong there
and tell which one is most
grievous, or whether one of
them is even wrong at all.
Anyone who thinks Hitler
and Bush are equally evil is
someone whose moral
compass is not functioning at
all, someone who himself
might be susceptible to
committing or at least
abetting evil, so frail is his
ability to distinguish the real
thing from something not
remotely like it. If Pinter is a
hero to some, what should we
conclude? Just this: They are
as morally moronic as he is.

COMMENTARY


How hard


should


Christians


fight for


Christmas?

Can't help but wonder if some of us
Christians hang on too hard to
"Christmas." Yes, it's true that the
banning of the word "Christmas," or
even any symbols having anything to
remotely do with "Christmas" at this time of
year, drives me a little nuts. As FOX News
anchor John Gibson reveals in his new book,
'The War on
Christmas,"
one school
district in
Texas actually
banned red and
green plates at -.
its "holiday"
party. How silly
is that? And, Betsy Hart
um, what www.betsyhartcom
holiday would
that be
anyway? It would be a United States federal
holiday called (drum roll please ...)
"Christmas Day."
I have no problem, by the way, with
recognizing a general "holiday season." After
all, we're talking six-weeks of Thanksgiving,
Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and
Hanukkah. What's gotten ridiculous is the
deliberate dissing of "Christmas."
On the other hand, I'm not sure we
Christians should spend too much time saving
the public use of red and green decorations,
or candy canes, or "Christmas" trees, or
"Christmas' cards or demand that stores wish
us a "Merry Christmas" when we purchase
our "Christmas" iPods and Palm Treos at this
time of year, either.
I mean, none of this has anything to do with
Christmas. In fact, Christmas doesn't really
have anything to do with "Christmas."
Let's face it. Scholars believe that Christ
was probably born in the spring. Early
Christians didn't consider celebrating his
birth. That "Holy Day" came later, probably
when early missionaries conflated celebrating
Christ's birth with Pagan festivals as a way of
trying to convert lost souls. The holiday didn't
really catch on as we know it today until
Victorian times. And no, there was no brightly
lighted or decorated Christmas tree in the
manger. That was largely popularized as we
know it now by Prince Albert in England, who
brought one over from his native Germany.
And you know all those creche scenes
which depict the wise men at the manger?
Those fellows probably didn't actually show
up until around the time Christ was a toddler.
When I lived in Virginia, I was a member of
a Presbyterian church that did not officially
recognize "Christmas." While the
parishioners, including the pastor, typically
celebrated the holiday with all its trimmings
as largely a secular celebration, it wasn't part
of our church calendar in any way because an
annual celebration of Christ's birth wasn't
called for in scripture. (I had Christian friends
who just could not get that.)
Now look, I go ga-ga over "Christmas." I
love the songs, the lights, the gifts, the chaos,
the parties, the whole deal. I don't hold back.
It's fun! The older I get, the more ga-ga I get.
When my first was born, I was adamant that I
wouldn't tell him that Santa Claus was
anything but a lovely story. By the time
number four came along, I was adamant that
the Santa she was talking to at the mall just
HAD to be the real one.
I just recognize it for what it is - a largely
secular celebration.
Now I'm all for Christmas Day being a
national holiday. I mean whatever one's
religious beliefs, few dispute that Christ was
in fact a major historical figure. I've often
heard it put that judging by the history of the
world itself, Christ was the most important
historical figure to have ever existed. (All the
more amazing considering he lived for only
33 years in a Roman backwater, never
physically wrote a word himself, or
commanded an army.)
I'm as offended as anyone about the silly
attack on "Christmas," but only because in
many ways I think it's a metaphor for a larger
(attempted) attack on Christianity by
America's elites,
I'm just arguing that we Christians have to


keep what matters to our faith in perspective,
and that means that among other things, I
don't think that we necessarily have to have to
fall on our swords to protect red and green
plates.

Tobacco con

a victory in'
I By PAUL NOWELL
AP Business Writer
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The
Illinois Supreme Court handed
the tobacco industry a huge
victory Thursday by tossing
out a $10.1 billion fraud judg-
ment against Philip Morris
USA about the marketing of its
"light" cigarettes.
But while shares of parent
company Altria Group Inc.
soared to an all-time high on
the news, industry critics
warned, that the Illinois
decision does not insulate
U.S. cigarette companies from
future lawsuits. There are at
least 40 similar suits pending
against companies like Philip
Morris and Reynolds
American, any of which could
result in awards into the
billions of dollars, tobacco
opponents said.
"They need to keep their
legal teams ready," said
Richard Daynard, president of
the Boston-based Tobacco
Control Resource Center and a
longtime industry foe.
Philip Morris USA, which
makes the popular Marlboro
brand and controls about half
S the U.S. cigarette market,
issued only a terse statement
saying the Richmond, 'Va'.-
based " 'company '
"gratified" by Illinois court's
decision.
Investors were more openly
enthusiastic. Shares of New
York-based-based Altria Group
rose sharply after the court's
ruling and by the end of
trading, the share price hit
$76.62, up $2.89 or 3.9 percent,
on the New York Stock
Exchange. That surpassed the
stock's previous all-time high
of $75.60.

should not get driver's licens-
es, and I think that is bigoted.
It's racist," said Christine
Saah Nazer, spokeswoman
for the Washington-based
Arab American Institute.
Amanda Bowman,
president of the New York-
based Coalition for a Secure
Driver's License, which is
launching the billboard
campaign in North Carolina
and two other states, said:
"We're not going after Arab-
Americans. We're going after
terrorists."
The billboard, scheduled to
go up this month near the
state Capitol in Raleigh,
shows a man in traditional
Arab head scarf. The bill-
board reads: "Don't license
terrorists, North Carolina."
Similar billboards are
planned for New Mexico and
Wisconsin, the coalition said.

npanies win

lights' case
Shares of Winston-Salem-
based Reynolds American,
No. 2 in the industry to Altria's
Philip Morris rose
55 cents to $97.40 on the
NYSE. Earlier in the day,
Reynolds American shares
flirted with the $100 barrier.
The Illinois high court's rul-
ing in Price vs. Philip Morris
- the so-called "Price Lights"
case - addressed whether
Philip Morris acted fraudulent-
ly when it labeled some
cigarettes as "light" or "low tar
and nicotine."


Group may reinstate


boycott against Ford


By DEE-ANN DURBIN
AP Auto Writer

DETROIT - The conser-
vative American Family
Association said Thursday it
will consider reinstating a
boycott against Ford Motor
Co. because the automaker
plans to continue running
advertisements in gay
publications.
Ford said last week it
planned to stop advertising
its Jaguar and Land Rover
luxury brands in gay publica-
tions to reduce its marketing
costs. But after gay rights
groups complained and held
meetings with the automak-
er, Ford reversed course and
said Wednesday it would
continue to advertise all of
its eight brands in gay
publications.
There was a Jaguar ad
Thursday afternoon on the
Web site of The Advocate, a
biweekly gay magazine.
"We had an agreement
with Ford, worked out in
good faith. Unfortunately,
some Ford Motor Co. offi-
cials made the decision to
violate the good faith agree-
ment," AFA Chairman Don
Wildmon said in a news
release. "We are now consid-
ering our response to the


violation and expect to reach
a decision very soon."
The AFA originally called
for a boycott against Ford
last spring but suspended
the boycott for six months at
the request of a - group of
Ford dealers.
"All we wanted was for
Ford to refrain from choos-
ing sides in the cultural war,
and supporting groups
which promote same-sex
marriage is not remaining
neutral," Wildmon said.
A message seeking
comment was left with Ford
on Thursday.
On Wednesday, Ford said
it wasn't ordering its luxury
brands to resume their ads
but plans to advertise all
of its brands in gay
publications.
"It is my hope that this will
remove any ambiguity about
Ford's desire to advertise to
all important audiences and
put this particular issue to
rest," Joe Laymon, Ford's
group vice president for cor-
porate human resources,
said in a statement.
Ford shares rose 1 cent
Thursday to close at $8.17 on
the New York Stock
Exchange.

Decision tough one to jail

parents in neglect case


By CURT ANDERSON
AP Legal Affairs Writer

MIAMI - A judge acknowl-
edged Thursday that he faces a
"tough" decision on whether to
jail two parents convicted of
child neglect in a case revolv-
ing around their adherence to
a strict vegetarian raw foods
diet.
Joseph and Lamoy
Andressohn were acquitted
Nov. 7 by a jury of manslaugh-
ter in the 2003 death of their
6-month-old daughter, Woyah.
But the jury decided that they
were guilty of child neglect
involving their four other chil-
dren, who are in the custody of
an aunt.
The Andressohns could
receive a sentence of
anywhere from probation to
20 years in prison on those
neglect charges. At a hearing
Thursday, Miami-Dade Circuit
Judge Stanford Blake admitted
that deciding on a sentence is
particularly difficult in this
case.
'"This is a tough case. It's
tough for everyone. There's a
lot of emotion," Blake said.
After several hours
Thursday, Blake said that he


would hold a new sentencing
hearing Dec. 22. The
Andressohns remain free on
bond.
Both parents expressed sor-
row for what happened to
Woyah and vowed to do what-
ever is required by a court or
by the state Department of
Children & Families to have
their family reunited. Joseph
Andressohn said he believed a
raw food diet was healthier for
his family and that he never
thought it would harm anyone.
"I thought it was the best
diet in the world," Andressohn
said. "I thought we were on the
right path."
One of their lawyers, Robert
Barrar, urged Blake to give the
couple probation -- particular-
ly since they now have a
7-month-old baby girl.
'They may not be the
smartest people in the world,
but they are not criminals,"
Barrar said.
But prosecutor Herbert
Walker III said that all of the
Andressohn children were'
diagnosed with severe malnu-
trition, which is enough to sat-
isfy legal requirements that the
parents do at least some prison
time.


Florida tourism expected to



jump 3.2 percent next year


By JOHN PAIN
AP Business Writer

FORT LAUDERDALE -
About 3.2 -percent more visi-
tors are expected to come to
Florida next year, but worries
about busy hurricane, seasons
are keeping some travelers
away, the state's tourism mar-
keting agency said Thursday.
Next year's outlook is high-
er than the national forecast
of up to 2 percent more visi-
tors to the U.S. next year, Visit
Florida said at its board meet-
ing. Tourism is Florida's
biggest industry, with rev-
enues of about $57 billion last
year.
Last year, 79.7 million peo-
ple visited Florida, the most
ever and a 6.8 percent
increase from 2003. Florida
should surpass the 80 million
visitor mark this year for the
first time, said Barry E.
Pitegoff, the agency's vice
president of research. The
state may have already
exceeded that, but results
won't be in until Feb. 15.
If that figure holds, and the


forecast is correct, that would
mean at least 2.5 million more
people would-visit the state in
2006.
"If we did not have the chal-
lenge of hurricanes, our visi-
tor numbers could be higher,"
said Bud Nocera, president
and chief executive of Visit
Florida.
The prediction for next
year includes the possible
effects of more hurricanes hit-
ting the state, Pitegoff said.
Hurricanes are the single
biggest factor affecting
tourists' decision to visit
Florida, he said.
The agency is noticing that
some tourists are planning to
avoid Florida during the peak
hurricane months of August,
September.and October, said
Dale Brill, chief marketing
officer. That is a change from
the past, when Florida's
balmy climate attracted
visitors during all seasons of
the year, he said.
He said the agency will
focus more on advertising to
the meeting and convention
market and less on leisure

Costumed revelers walk down Duval Street late Saturday, during
the Fantasy Fest Parade in Key West. The parade culminated Key
West's annual Fantasy Fest costuming and masking festival.
Festival officials estimated almost 40,000 revelers attended the
parade. Theme for the entire festival was "Freaks, Geeks and
Goddesses."


travelers to counter negative
effects from hurricanes
"'The reason we're so cau-
tious is that it's very, very dif-
ficult to attract the amount of
leisure vacations that you
need to make up for what one
(convention) group delivers,"
he said.
Apart from the hurricanes,


economic factors like gasoline
and heating oil prices and ris-
ing interest rates will also
impact travel plans, but they
shouldn't keep people away,
Pitegoff said. They mostly will
make visitors adjust how long
they stay and how much
they'll spend while here, he
said.

French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy (left) awards medals to
police officers who had been working during the recent riots,
during a ceremony in their honor at his office in Paris on Thursday.

France seizes weapons

linked to al-Zarqawi


By JAMEY KEATEN
Associated Press
PARIS - French counter
terrorism agents seized guns,
ammunition, dynamite and
other weapons Thursday in a
probe of suspected Islamic mil-
itants who officials said use
robberies to fund terror
groups - possibly including
al-Qaida in Iraq.
Police seized the arms cache
in a parking garage in Clichy-
sous-Bois just north of Paris,
working off information
gleaned from questioning
suspects. Agents found several
pounds of TNT, 19 sticks of
dynamite, AK-47 and Famas
assault rifles, revolvers, ammu-
nition, ski masks and bullet-
proof vests, judicial and police
officials said.
"Thanks to questioning, a
stash of arms has been discov-
ered, which shows how seri-
ous this affair is," Interior
Ministry Nicolas Sarkozy said,
claiming they had uncovered a
new link between suspected
terror groups and organized
crime in France.
Investigators believe the
weapons were used to carry
out robberies in France to
finance jihad, or holy war.


Some money may have gone to
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's al-
Qaida in Iraq, the officials said.
However, judicial officials
expressed caution about
Sarkozy's assertion that 28 sus-
pects rounded up in police
raids Monday and Wednesday
had indirect links to Iraq's
most feared terror group.
Two of those detained
Monday wore bulletproof vests
- probably a sign that they
had just returned from an
abandoned robbery attempt,
judicial officials said.
'This band was dismantled
... just in time," Sarkozy said on
the sidelines of an awards cer-
emony honoring police injured
during the three weeks of
unrest across France that
began Oct. 27.
Police detained the last
three suspects Wednesday, the
judicial officials said. They
spoke on condition of anonymi-
ty because of French law limit-
ing the release of information
about investigations.
At least 10 of the 25 suspects
detained Monday were expect-
ed to be placed under investi-
gation - one step short of
being charged - as part of the
inquiry into suspected terror
networks and terror financing.


Icy weather causes power


outages to some 300,000


By PAGE IVEY
Associated Press
COLUMBIA, S.C.- A jolt
of freezing rain and ice across
Georgia and the Carolinas
early Thursday closed
schools, snarled traffic and
caused power outages to
more than 350,000
customers.
The outages were caused
by ice that formed on tree
limbs and fell onto power
lines. About 160,000 were
without power in South
Carolina's upstate, 102,000 in
northeast Georgia, 57,000 in
the Atlanta area and 40,000 in
western and central North
Carolina.
'The trees and power lines
are down everywhere on the
road. It's just dangerous to be
out," said Rebecca Neal, who
was using blankets to keep
warm in her powerless
Greenville home and thinking
about finding a hotel for the


night.
Earlier in the day, Neal had
gone to her job at a public
relations firm, only to find
that her office didn't have
power either.'
School systems canceled or
cut short classes from north-
ern Georgia to western
stretches of Virginia.
The National Weather
Service said the freezing rain
was expected to continue in
the region, through Thursday
evening and overnight tem-
peratures were forecast to dip
into the 20s. More power
lines and tree limbs could
snap under ice layers expect-
ed to grow to up to
three-quarters of an inch
thick.
Mountains of North
Carolina and Virginia were
being hit with a hazardous mix
of snow and sleet, with accu-
mulations from 1 to
3 inches expected overnight.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Jonathan Lilly pulls limbs off of his two cars at his apartment
complex in Gainesville, Ga., on Thursday.


"Snow we can plow. Ice we
can't," said Virginia
Department of Transportation
spokesman Chuck Lionberger.
The wintry mix was blamed
for a school bus
accident in Cherokee County,
on the northern end of subur-
ban Atlanta. The driver
swerved to avoid a large tree
branch that had fallen across


the road, forcing the vehicle's
rear tires to slide off the road.
None of the 23 students
aboard the bus was injured.
A spokeswoman for Duke
Power, the main supplier of
electricity in the hard-hit
stretches of the Carolinas,
said crews were working to
restore power, but added that
it could be a long process.


Apple juggernaut shows no sign of stopping


By MAY WONG
AP Technology Writer
SAN JOSE, Calif. - Five
years ago, Apple Computer
Inc. was barely an
afterthought in the halls of
electronics companies.
Not anymore. With its
best-selling iPods and land-
mark licensing deals with
music and television moguls
propelling new ways of
consuming digital media,
Apple now is the pacesetter.
"In the consumer electron-
ics world, there's always talk
now about Apple, the way
people used to talk about
Sony," said analyst Richard
Doherty of The
Envisioneering Group. "At
the water cooler or in board-
rooms, they're asking, 'What


is Apple doing next?' or 'How
do we stay out of their way?"'
If anything, the company's
momentum accelerated in
2005. It gave us the iPod
shuffle, the Mac mini, the
nano, the video-playing iPod,
a new iMac with a remote'
control and TV shows for
sale on its iTunes online
store.
Steve Jobs, Apple's rain-
maker, was even parodied in
a "Saturday Night Live"
sketch, evidence of how the
Cupertino-based outfit is
ingrained in pop culture like
no other tech company.
In the skit, an actor imper-
sonating the chief executive
(sporting black turtleneck
and jeans, of course) intro-
duces three iPods within
minutes of each other. Each


device makes its predeces-
sor obsolete - from the iPod
Micro to the iPod Pequeno,
and finally the iPod Invisa,
which though invisible can
still hold 8 million songs and
every picture ever taken.
Apple is characteristically
mum on the products it has
in store for 2006, but analysts
and observers say there's no
question rain is on its way.
The only debate is on how
strong a downpour.
Different varieties of the
iPod are reported in the
works by sites run by Apple
afficionados. Perhaps an
iPhone, or an iPod-cell phone
hybrid.
There is considerable
speculation that iPods will
get wireless Internet connec-
tivity. Analysts also expect a


bigger display at some point
for better video viewing.
As Apple works to make
its computers digital multi-
media hubs, the book-sized
Mac mini introduced in early
2005 is predicted to get fea-
tures that will make it fit
more comfortably in a living
room. Add an iPod dock or a
TV tuner, for instance, and it
could serve as a home's
music hub and a TiVo-like
digital video recorder.
The slimmer iMac that
Apple introduced in the fall
- complete with a remote
control and "Front Row" soft-
ware that lets users access
their music, photos and
video from across the room
- suggests Apple is ready-
ing to step deeper into the
media center arena.

funding to improve these
projects."
Columbia County is the
first county in the water
management district's
15-county coverage area to
sign this type of interlocal
agreement, however other
cities have partnered with the
district in similar cases.
County manager Dale
Williams said the projects
that will use the funding will
be prioritized, discussed with
water management district
officials and discussed with
the public by Sept. 1, 2006,
which will begin the first year


of project funding.
Still said the City of Lake
City and the water manage-
ment district are working on a
similar interlocal agreement
for stormwater issues.
The interlocal with the city
would guaranty the city
$100,000 for five years in a
joint-agreement that would
raise $1 million during a
five-year period.
'We can't solve every prob-
lem, but we try to get the
biggest .flooding problems
and try to solve those," Still
said.


INN: Future hotel site?

City.
The Guesthouse Inn proper-
ty includes the former two-
story motel and a restaurant
building on the street frontage
that most recently housed The
Only One, a Cuban-themed
eatery. The restaurant build-
ing also will be demolished to
completely clear the lot'for
future development.
"Christmas has come 'early
this year," said Harvey
Campbell, executive director
of the Columbia ,County
Tourist Development Council.
Campbell lobbied with the
building's owner for several
years to either improve the
site or sell the property
because it had become an eye-
sore in a prominent location in
Lake City.


In recent years, the proper-
ty has become rundown and
been a target for vandals and
trouble makers. The land-
scape at the site also has
become overgrown during
recent years.
Once the deal with the
Patels closed, a demolition
crew quickly prepared the
structure for razing.
Motel fixtures and furniture
that were usable were
removed and donated to
charitable organizations.
Demolition and cleanup of
the structure was expected to
take about two weeks once the
wrecking ball swings, accord-
ing to reports. There was no
indication what type of
development is planned at the
site.


County pledges $198,500 to


enforce local sexual offender law


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
Earlier this month,
Columbia County became one
of the first counties in the state
to adopt a sexual
predator/sexual offender
ordinance. On Thursday,
county officials authorized
$198,500 in materials and
manpower that will be used to
enforce the new ordinance.
County officials on
Thursday unanimously
approved funding for
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee to setup a small detail
of officers to enforce the new
ordinance.
County officials authorized
$100,000 for salary and bene-
fits, $32,000 for operating

expenses and $66,500 that will
be used to cover the purchase
of radios, computer software
and other equipment used to
establish the detail.
Gootee initially told


commissioners that he would
need four employees for the
detail, but county officials
advised Gootee and county
manager, Dale .Williams, to
discuss his staff desires. and
the sheriff ended up .with
two employees.
'The funding that they gave
the sheriff's office will proba-
bly fund about two positions
and we'll look for those to be
sworn positions - detectives;
who will, monitor the, sex
offenders and predators with-
in our community," Gootee
said. "And they'll work closely
with probation and parole
(departments) for those who
are on supervision. We think
we can stretch it and make it
work."
Gootee said he was hoping


to get additional support staff
along with the officers, but he
thinks the situation worked
out well. However, he was not
able to give a date as to when
the. detail would begin
enforcement duties.
"We're using what we've got
right now to start registering
(the offenders and predators)
and we're probably going to
go into to the hiring process
next week or after Christmas,"
he said. "We're going to try to
acquire some software in
order to make the identifica-
tion cards, the mapping sys-
tem and those types of things
with computer equipment the
county gave us, so it's going to
be a little planning process for
us in getting it up and getting
it going."

the Thursday meeting.
The two also offered kits for
members to take back to their
workplaces. This would allow
others in the community to
participate and show solidarity

It was a meaningful experi-
ence for Rotarian Dennis

received an e-mail that morn-
ing from his son, Daniel
Roberts, a Marine on a gun
truck crew on patrol in the area
of the Ramadi Airport.
"They're (Daniel and his
unit) very busy today because
of the elections going on. I got
an e-mail from him and he said
they were trying to stay in the
background and let the Iraqi
people handle it," Roberts said,
adding that his son said, "It was
looking good."
The impetus behind the proj-
ect was Summers and Wheeler.
'We just ran across the
Web site (www.purplefingerfor
freedom.org) just showing soli-
darity with the Iraqi's establish-
ing a new Republic and it's

Along with .the public

Opposition to the American

Iraq's other religious and

While Sunnis were defiant,
Shiites and Kurds seemed
hopeful the new government

A common theme, however,
appeared to be a yearning for

Security Council

extends probe into

death of Lebanon's

former PM Hariri


By EDITH M. LEDERER
Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS-The
U.N. Security Council voted
Thursday to extend the inves-
tigation into the assassination
of Lebanon's former prime
minister but didn't agree to
Lebanon's request to immedi-
ately broaden the probe and
establish an international
tribunal.
After a day of intense nego-
tiations on how to characterize
Syria's dealings with U.N.
investigators, the 15-nation
council expressed "extreme
concern" that the Syrian gov-
ernment has still not provided
"the full and unconditional
cooperation" it has demanded.
U.S. Ambassador John
Bolton praised the resolution,
which was adopted unani-
mously, saying "the United
States believes it sends a
strong signal to Syria that we
still require full 'and
unconditional compliance."
The latest report by chief
investigator Detlev Mehlis
said new evidence strength-
ened his belief that the Syrian
and Lebanese intelligence
services had a hand in the
Feb. 14 car bomb that killed
Rafik Hariri and 20 others in
Beirut. It said there were
19 suspects, including six
high-ranking Syrian officials.
The resolution's co-spon-
sors - the United States,
France and Britain - faced
opposition from Russia, China
and Algeria not only on the
extent of Syria's cooperation
but on expanding the probe
and setting up an international
tribunal.
In a final bit of word-
smithing to satisfy Russia, the
phrase "the Syrian govern-
ment has not yet provided ..."
was changed to "the Syrian
government has yet to pro-
vide ... the full and uncondi-
tional cooperation


demanded."
Under pressure from
Moscow, Beijing and Algiers,
the co-sponsors backed away
from their original resolution
that would have immediately
expanded the investigation to
include a series of other
terrorist attacks.
Instead, the resolution
adopted Thursday authorizes
the International Independent
Investigation Commission
headed by Mehlis to provide
technical assistance to
Lebanese authorities in their
probe of terrorist attacks
since Oct. 1, 2004.
It also asked U.N.
Secretary-General Kofi
Annan, after consulting with
the commission and the
Lebanese government, "to
present recommendations to
expand the mandate of the
commission to include investi-
gations of those other
attacks."
Algeria's U.N. Ambassador
Abdallah Baali said his gov-
ernment recognizes the "prac-
tical problems that need to be
addressed" in extending the
mandate including decisions
on new staff, how many assas-
sinations will be investigated,
and whether, for instance, an
expansion would apply to any
future killings or attempted
killings.
As for Lebanon's request
for an international tribunal,
the resolution also asked the
secretary-general "to help the
Lebanese government identi-
fy the nature and scope of the
international assistance need-
ed" and to report to the
council.
The resolution extended
the Investigation
Commission's mandate until
June 15. The council asked
the commission to report on
its progress in three months
and earlier if it decides Syria is
not cooperating.

Crosstown showdown


Tigers, Indians
meet on the
hardwood tonight.
From staff reports

Columbia High basketball
hosts Fort White High today
in three phases of the game -
boys varsity and JV and girls
varsity.
Tipoff for all three games
has been moved back one-half
hour to accommodate testing
at Fort White. The Lady Tigers
and Lady Indians will meet at
5 p.m. The junior varsity boys
will play at 6:30 p.m. and the
varsity event will be at 8 p.m.
The Tigers have sprinted
out to a 7-0 start, but coach
Trey Hosford is expecting a
battle from, the Indians (5-3).
U t'r- ,yery -x.'ik1 about
it,; .,Hosford, said.. '"We know
Fort White is much improved
over last year. They know how
to win, especially after the suc-
cess of their football team.
We're not looking past it. It is
a big game for us."
The Indians have caught
Hosford's eye.
"They have several key play-
ers to look out for," Hosford
said. "Antwan Ruise is a great
player and Owen McFadden is
one of their key guys. Ollie
James was one of their better
JV players last year."
Concentrating on the task
as hand has worked for CHS.
"I tell our guys, each game we
play is the biggest one of the sea-
son," Hosford said. "That is the
one we are getting ready for."
Indians coach Charles
Moore is also impressed with
what he's seen from the
undefeated Tigers.
"They're got a good team
and a strong program," he
said. And if the Indians win
tonight, Moore said, "It would
be great. That would be one of
the biggest victories in the
history of Fort White. That
would be a giant step."
.It would also be a big step in
the battle for bragging rights
among Indians players like
McFadden and Ruise, who
count several Columbia
players as their friends.
"I haven't talked to them
(CHS players) since last
Saturday at their game," Ruise
said, adding that "everybody"
on CHS impresses him.


:. '


iv


"They're 7-0, and they should
be," he said.
As for getting a .win, Ruise
said, "It would make me feel
real good, but I don't think
they would like that."
McFadden thinks a victory
would be a great jumpstart for
the Indians as they have to turn
around and play P.K Yonge
School on Saturday. His primary
responsibility will be guarding
the elusive Kenny Williams.
"We're going to go at it," he said.
"They're good, they're going to
be hard to beat."
Those bragging rights
extend to the junior varsity,
where Fort White coaches Isiah
Phillips and Curtis Burgess
have known CHS coach Varion
Coppock for years. Like
Coppock, Phillips played
basketball for the Tigers.
"Like I tell anybody, if I was-
n't coaching at Fort White, I'd
be at every Columbia game,
football or basketball," Phillips
said. "I played there. They've
had a good program for years.
I just hope we make it a good
showing."


Ex-NFL player Russell dies


Former No. 2 pick,
friend die in car
crash on Thursday.
By TIM MOLLOY
Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - Darrell
Russell, a former standout NFL
and Southern California defen-
sive lineman whose promising
career was derailed by drugs,
was killed in a high-speed car
crash early Thursday.
Russell, 29, was a passenger
in a car driven by former USC


teammate Mike Bastianelli that
went out of control about 6 a.m.
and hit a curb, tree, newsstand,
fire hydrant, light pole, another
tree and an unoccupied transit
bus, Lt. Paul Vernon said.
Both Russell and Bastia-
nelli, 29, were unconscious
when firefighters arrived.
Russell died at Cedars-Sinai
Medical Center. Bastianelli
died at UCLA Medical Center.
"He was a hell of a guy,"
Raiders receiver Jerry Porter
said of Russell. "He just never
found the strength to get
going again after the all the


trouble he got into."
The 6-foot-5, 325-pound
Russell, the No. 2 overall pick
by Oakland in the 1997 draft,
had a promising start in the
NFL before substance abuse
problems ruined his career.
He had 28'/2 sacks in five sea-
sons with Raiders, making the
Pro Bowl in 1998 and 1999.
"Darrell was a good guy, he
really was. He was a big kid
like me that had a big heart,".
said former Raiders offensive
lineman Lincoln Kennedy. "He

Talladega gets first

facelift since 1979


Several drivers are
looking forward to
a smoother ride.
Associated Press

TALLADEGA, Ala. - Tall-
adega Superspeedway will be
repaved next year, the first
time since 1979, and several
drivers say they're looking
forward to a smoother ride.
Drivers have complained
about the track, saying the


uneven surface takes a toll
on springs and other chassis
parts and makes the bumper-
to-bumper racing even more
harrowing. The track surface
had settled in several spots
and asphalt patches have
raised the surface in other
areas.
The repaving project will
begin after the Aaron's 499,
which is set for April 30,
track spokeswoman Kristi
TALLADEGA continued on 3B

NCAA reduces Morris' suspension


By MURRAY EVANS
Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Ken-
tucky center Randolph
Morris' season-long suspen-
sion for his attempt to enter
the NBA draft was reduced to
14 games by the NCAA on
Thursday.
The NCAA cited new infor-
mation provided by the
school for softening its pun-
ishment after Morris went
undrafted. The information
shed more light on Morris'
"mindset during that process
and his failure to avail himself
of university resources," the
NCAA said.
A fax Morris sent to
Kentucky coach Tubby Smith
on May 9, in which Morris
informed Smith about his
intention to enter the draft,
indicated Morris' "clear intent
to retain his collegiate eligibil-
ity while declaring for the
NBA draft," the NCAA said in
a statement.
Smith said Thursday he
misplaced the original copy of
the fax sent by Morris while
traveling and only found it last
week. In the one-paragraph
fax - released by the univer-
sity on Thursday - Morris
told Smith that "my intent is
not to obtain an agent so as to
maintain my collegiate
eligibility."
Earlier this month, an
NCAA committee ruled that
Morris did have a relationship
with sports agency SFX,
which released a statement
on behalf of Morris on June
21 and was listed as the con-
tact for Morris.on a list com-
piled to help NBA teams
arrange pre-draft workouts.
But that committee also noted
there was no explicit written
or oral agreement between
Morris and SFX.
Morris, a 6-foot-10 sopho-
more from Atlanta, must
repay expenses related to the
tryouts - which amounted to
more than $7,000 from nine
NBA teams, the NCAA said.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Randolph Morris' season-long suspension was reduced to
14 games on Thursday by the NCAA, which cited new information
for softening its punishment after his unsuccessful entry into the
NBA draft.


Morris will miss all of
Kentucky's nonconference
schedule, including a show-
down with No. 4 Louisville on
Saturday, but will be available
for the 23rd-ranked Wildcats'
Southeastern Conference
opener against Vanderbilt on
Jan. 10. He can continue to
practice with the Wildcats in
the interim and will have two
years of eligibility remaining
after this season.
"Based on all the informa-
tion we had and all the exten-
uating circumstances, both
Randolph and we have been
very patient waiting for this
opportunity," Smith said. "I'm
very happy for Randolph, his
family and our basketball
program."
In his first public comments
since the saga began, Morris
apologized to Smith, his team-
mates and Kentucky fans and


reaffirmed his intention to
play four seasons for the
Wildcats.
"In exploring my NBA
options, I made poor choices,"
Morris said. 'Those choices
included accepting bad advice
while putting distance
between me and my coaches
and teammates at UK. I take
full responsibility for those
actions.
"It wasn't obvious to me as I
was going through this
process, but looking back, I
now see how my actions were
disrespectful to coach Smith
and the University of
Kentucky. Playing basketball
at the University of Kentucky
is a privilege that few athletes
get to enjoy. I intend to make
the most of this opportunity
to be a part of the greatest
basketball program in
America."


Colorado will hire

former Boise State coach


By CHRISTOPHER SMITH
Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho - Boise
State coach Dan Hawkins said
Thursday he'll go to Colorado
to finalize negotiations to
become the Buffaloes' new
coach.
"Officially, nothing's been
decided," he said. 'There are
certain things that have to
happen. You can go 99 yards
on a football field, but you
have to go that last yard, oth-
erwise you don't get a
touchdown."
The CU board of regents is
scheduled to meet today to


approve Hawkins' contract. If
that goes as expected,
Hawkins coach could be intro-
duced as the replacement for
Gary Barnett later in the day.
"What it gets down to, is
challenge and opportunity,
versus continuing to do what
you've been doing," said
Hawkins, who is 53-10 at
BSU.
The coach acknowledged
the challenges at Colorado,
where football has been
under scrutiny in the wake of
a recruiting scandal and,
more recently, a state audit
that did not look kindly at the
way Barnett ran his program.

Hawkins was close to
completing a deal that would

Brown finding it tough


to coach the Knicks


By BRIAN MAHONEY
Associated Press

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -
Larry Brown hears the boos,
too.
Bad shots. Awful defense.
Poor decisions. And a whole
lot of frustrated fans at
Madison Square Garden.
'This is much more diffi-
cult right now than I ever
imagined," the New York
Knicks coach said Thursday
after practice.
More than a quarter of the
way through his first season
in charge of his hometown
team, the man who preaches
doing things the right way is
stuck with a bunch of players
doing just about everything
wrong.
New York has lost four in a
row, falling to 6-15 heading
into today's game at Atlanta.
Worse, after playing well dur-
ing a recent trip out West, the
Knicks haven't been competi-
tive in two games since
returning home.
"We're just not doing it,"
Brown said. "We're not
matching the energy of our
opponent. We're doing the
same things we've done all
year. We turn the ball over
too much, don't make simple
plays, and don't execute very
well."
Never was that more evi-
dent than recently. In double-
digit home losses to
Milwaukee and Orlando, the
Knicks committed
38 turnovers -they rank last
in the league in that category
- and left shooters wide
open while struggling to
defend pick-and-rolls. The
Bucks and Magic combined
for 23 3-pointers, many of
them uncontested.
"They had like miscommu-
nication out there. They
didn't help each other,"
Orlando's Hedo Turkoglu
said after the Magic's 105-90


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Larry Brown sees his players
fumbling away the ball and
leaving shooters open on
defense. No wonder he says
coaching his hometown New
York Knicks is tougher than he
ever imagined.

victory Wednesday.
"I think they have a bunch
of young guys there and
they're still learning, so that's
why they messed it up. You
can't leave guys who are mak-
ing shots in a row like that,
you have to do something."
Brown isn't the only New
Yorker tired of the lapses.
The Knicks were booed dur-.
ing both games, especially in
the fourth quarter of
Wednesday's loss.
"I don't tune them out at
all," Brown said.
"I hear it all. I'm embar-
rassed. I know how much
they love basketball and love
this team and want us to do
well. And when we play poor-
ly, I hear it, and it kills me


because I'm responsible."
Brown, a Brooklyn native,
knew things weren't going to
be easy.
While the Detroit team he
coached to the last two NBA
Finals was a veteran club, the
Knicks have mostly young
players on a mismatched
roster that went 33-49 last
season.
But he was expecting more
veteran help. Instead, he
watched Allan Houston retire
during training camp. And
the Knicks traded Tim
Thomas, previously coached
by Brown, before the season
started.
Combined with injuries to
newcomers Eddy Curry and
Jerome James, that has left
Brown forced to experiment
with combinations featuring
younger players. He has used
already used 15 different
starting lineups.
The inexperience is show-
ing on both ends of the court.
"I don't even really have an
answer for you," veteran
guard Stephon Marbury said.
"Right now, as far as for the
way we're playing, we're
going backwards, we're not
going forward."
The turnovers are of the
biggest concern to Brown.
The Knicks are committing
18.1 per game - some in
ways Brown can't even
explain.
"I've seen turnovers that
they're trying to make the
right play," Brown said. "We
had two or three dump-down
passes that were good passes
that we didn't catch. To me,
that's a guy trying to make
the right play.
"But then we have five or
six turnovers where we're
ahead on the break and
throw it behind us, or we try
to throw a crosscourt pass
and it goes into the fifth row.
I mean, there's things that
I've never seen before."


TALLADEGA: Race should be better
Continued From Page 1B


King said. It will be finished
before the UAW-Ford 500 in
the fall.
It will include complete
asphalt repaving of the 2.66-mile
tri-oval track, the apron and pit
road. Track officials would not
disclose the estimated cost.
The track opened in 1969
and was resurfaced twice over
the next 10 years, but has only
been patched since then.
Dale Jarrett, who won the
UAW Ford 500 in October at
the track, said the new surface
was needed.
"Talladega's surface is one


that the weather and other
things have taken a toll on
over the years," he said.
"Putting a new surface down
should make the racing even
more exciting."
He said the present surface
limits drivers and a new sur-
face "will make for some good
side-by-side racing."
Track President Grant
Lynch agrees with Jarrett.
'Twenty-six years has cer-
tainly been a long time to go
without necessitating a project
this extensive, so there is no
question that the time has


come for us to repave," he
said. "It will ensure that
Talladega Superspeedway con-
tinues to uphold its reputation
for the most exciting, most
competitive racing throughout
the entire NASCAR circuit for
years to come."
Dale Earnhardt Jr., a five-
time winner at Talladega,
noted that the track was last
repaved the year his father
won Rookie of the Year.
"So the new asphalt will
definitely make for much
smoother and more competi-
tive racing," Earnhardt said.


RUSSELL: Drugs stalled his NFL career


Continued From Page 1B
couldn't say no to anybody.
That's what had a big deal with
his demise, especially in the
NFL, because he couldn't let
his friends go, from San Diego.
He couldn't let his past go. He
always wanted to try to take
care and do for other people. It
ended up bringing him down."
Russell was suspended three
times for violating the league's
substance abuse policy and his
career never really recovered.


After being released by the
Raiders at the end of his second
suspension, he played briefly
for the Washington Redskins in
2003 and was released before
training camp by Tampa Bay
the following year.
. Russell's first suspension
came after he failed a drug
test, forcing him to miss the
first four games of the 2001
season. The NFL does not dis-
close details of substance-


abuse violations. The league's
policy covers a wide range of
issues, including the illegal
use of drugs and the abuse of
alcohol, prescription and
over-the-counter drugs.
Russell was then suspended
again in January 2002 for test-
ing positive for the club drug
Ecstasy. He was released by
the Raiders in October 2003,
shortly after being reinstated
by the league.


PARTY: Crew members upset by events


Continued From Page 1B

'The night of the incident,
there was no shortage of inap-
propriate behavior on both
boats," Hennepin County
Sheriff Pat McGowan said.
Prosecutor Steve Tallen
charged the players based on
an investigation by McGowan's
office, which reviewed allega-
tions of lewd and drunken
behavior aboard two craft char-
tered for the outing on Oct. 6.
Crew members complained
that some people took off their
clothes and engaged in public
sex acts during the cruise,
according to Stephen Doyle,
an attorney representing the,


boats' owners, Al & Alma's
Supper Club and Charter
Cruises in Mound, Minn.
Crew members were able to
identify 17 Vikings among
about 90 people on the two
boats; McGowan said authori-
ties ultimately identified about
30 Vikings.
The criminal complaints
said that after the boats left the
dock, crew members noticed
many female passengers going
to a lower restroom area and
emerging in scant clothing.
Smoot and defensive end
Lance Johnstone arranged the
charter, according to court


papers.
Smoot declined comment in
the team's locker room before
practice. Culpepper and
Williams,. also on injured
reserve, are away from the
team and undergoing rehabili-
tation. McKinnie wasn't seen
in the locker room.
"According to NFL rules and
union contracts, there is a large
difference between allegations
and charges and convictions,"
coach Mike Tice said. "So until
at any point there is a convic-
tion of some type, if there is, I
have no action to take and
nothing tosay."

Ten movies

to tickle

Christmas
Everyone loves the
holidays.
Especially
Christmas. Here
now are the
Top-10 movies every family
can sit down to enjoy
together:
10. "Home Alone." This
movie stars everyone's
favorite child actor (no, not
Peter Billingsley). Macaulay
Culkin takes on a couple of
bumbling, idiotic would-be
thieves who underestimate
this 10-year-old's intestinal
fortitude when they try to
rob his house. Hilarity
follows as this kid
outsmarts the
thimble-minded criminals
and beats the bejesus out of
them.
9. "Planes, Trains and
Automobiles." This film
starring the late, great, John
Candy will have the kids
asking, "Why did Steve
Martin say the F-word so
many times to Mrs. Poole
behind the rental car
counter?" It's a good time as
any, this holiday season, to
start the kids off right by
letting them know 'tis the
season for bitterness and
resentment. Don't panic,
parents. It's still got a great
message at the end of
helping those in need,
despite the testy language.
8. "National Lampoon's
Christmas Vacation." For
no other reason than it's
Chevy Chase, and it's a
Griswold Christmas.
7. "A Christmas Story."
Here's where Billingsley
comes in to play. This is the
movie that made the Red
Ryder BB gun a popular
choice for children of all
ages to shoot their eye out.
6. "Jingle All the Way."
Because, when I think
Christmas, I think Arnold
Schwarzenegger.
5. 'The Santa Clause."
Tim Allen as the jolly man is
probably thne thing that
will get the kids to grunt
and and say, "Does Santa
really need more power?"
4. "Bad Santa." Maybe
this is one to put in after the
kiddies go to bed. But, if
you -choose to watch it with
the youngsters, then don't
blame me when they think
Santa is a drunken guy in a
dirty red suit.
3. "Elf." Anything with
Will Ferrell in it is good,
wholesome family fun.
Especially if he's dressed
like a giant Santa helper and
streaking his way to the
hearts of everyone
everywhere.
2. "Ernest Saves
Christmas." He's been to
jail. He's been to camp. He's
been to Africa. But, nothing
compares to when Santa
enlists Ernest to help find
the next Saint Nick.
Besides, it was filmed in
part at the Orlando
International Airport.
1. "How the Grinch
Stole Christmas." Jim
Carrey as the yellow-eyed,
green creature intent on
stealing the holidays. This
movie stole my money, so it
might as well steal yours
too.
Of course, these are just
ideas, and in no way
mandatory viewing. But, if
you want to have a happy
holiday, skip the movies and
just spend time together.

Golden


hue


Globes are nice, but Oscars are



true gold of Hollywood awards


By DAVID GERMAIN
AP Movie Writer
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -
Everyone in Hollywood says the
Golden Globes are an honor in their
own right. But for film contenders,
they're just another trophy if they don't
lead to an Academy Award.
Tuesday's Globe nominations solidi-
fied the Oscar field. The cowboys-in-
love drama "Brokeback Mountain" led
with seven nominations, including best
picture and honors for lead actor
Heath Ledger, supporting actress
Michelle Williams and director. Ang
Lee.
Smaller movies also grabbed the
other four best dramatic picture nomi-
nations: George Clooney's Edward R.
Murrow tale "Good Night, and Good
Luck"; Woody Allen's infidelity drama
"Match Point"; David Cronenberg's "A
History of Violence," about a family
menaced by mobsters; and Fernando
Meirelles' "The Constant Gardener," a
thriller about a diplomat investigating
his wife's murder.
Although higher-profile films like
"Syriana," "Memoirs of a Geisha,"
Steven Spielberg's "Munich" and Peter
Jackson's "King Kong" were over-
looked in the best-picture race, big-stu-
dio fare can't be counted out come
Oscar nomination day on Jan. 31., said
Tom O'Neil, who runs
theenvelope.com, an awards Web site.
"King , Kong," which opened
Wednesday, has a chance to become a
'Titanic"-style critical and commercial
juggernaut that sweeps to Oscar victo-
ry, especially since many in Hollywood
count on that film to salvage a dismal
year at the box office, O'Neil said.
'"The Globes embraced our gay cow-
boys but spurned our American
macho monkey, who may come back
big time at the Oscars," O'Neil said. "It
could be the movie that saves
Hollywood, and you can't underesti-
mate the importance of the 'Kong'
legacy in American pop culture."
Since they are chosen by a compar-
atively small group of about

Scarlett Johansson plays opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in this promotional photograph of 'Match Point' provided by
DreamWorks. The movie received four Golden Globes nominations including best supporting actress for Johansson, best
drama, on Tuesday. Woody Allen was nominated for both best writer and director for the film.


90 entertainment reporters in the
Hollywood Foreign Press Association,
the Globe nominations often recognize
a less mainstream field than the
Oscars, which are awarded by
5,800 actors, filmmakers and other
Hollywood professionals.
Two years ago, the Golden Globes
correctly predicted Oscar winners in
all key categories, including Jackson's
best-picture champ 'The Lord of the
Rings: The Return of the King" and
actors Sean Penn, Charlize Theron,
Tim Robbins and Renee Zellweger.
Yet a year ago, the Globes missed
the mark, picking "The Aviator" as
best picture, an honor that went to
"Million Dollar Baby" at the Oscars.
Jamie Foxx and Hilary Swank won
lead-acting Globes and went on to earn


Oscars, but Globe voters chose Clive
Owen and Natalie Portman of "Closer"
for the supporting-actor honors, while
Oscars went to Morgan Freeman for
"Million Dollar Baby" and Cate
Blanchett for 'The Aviator."
Still, the Globes positioned
"Brokeback Mountain" as a frontrun-
ner, though the critical favorite has an
uphill trail for the Oscars, where a gay-
themed film has never won top honors.
The Globes will be presented Jan. 16,
five days before Oscar balloting closes.
Chosen as 2005's best film by critics
groups in New York City, Los Angeles
and Boston, "Brokeback Mountain"
stars Ledger as a husband and father
carrying on a secret affair with an old
sheepherding companion (Jake
Gyllenhaal).

No lord of the box office, 'Kong'


takes in $9.8 million in first day


By DAVID GERMAIN
AP Movie Writer
LOS ANGELES - "King
Kong," Peter Jackson's
remake about the giant ape in
love, took in $9.8 million
domestically in its first day,
solid for a Wednesday debut
but far below the king-size
premieres of other action
epics.
Distributor Universal
called it a good beginning
that will generate audience
word-of-mouth on top of stel-
lar reviews for "King Kong."
"My little monkey's doing
great," said Nikki Rocco,
Universal's head of distribu-
tion. "We're convinced with
all the information we have
that this is the big guy, and
he's going to be around for a
long time."
The first of Jackson's 'The
Lord of the Rings" films, "The
Fellowship of the Ring,"
opened on a Wednesday in
December 2001 with $18.2
million, nearly double the
take of "King Kong."
The second installment,
"The Two Towers," debuted
on a Wednesday a year later
with $26.2 million, while the
final chapter, "The Return of
the King," opened with $34.5
million the next year, a
record for a Wednesday
debut until "Spider-Man 2"
broke it six months later with
$40.4 million.
"The Lord of the Rings"


flicks opened closer to
Christmas, when college stu-
dents generally were off for
winter break and free to hit
the theaters.
The $9.8 million gross puts
"King Kong" at No. 21 on the

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-April
19): You may be busy, but try
to find some time to help oth-
ers. Changes at home will be
beneficial, so do your part. A
serious decision regarding
education, travel or a money
matter must be made. **
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): You'll be in a take-action
mood, but that may not be
your best bet. Consider all
consequences before you pro-
ceed. Not everyone will be in
agreement with you, and if
you move forward without
family support you will find it
difficult to succeed. A****
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Love is at a high point.
Don't make abrupt changes
or decisions that could come
back to haunt you. Consider
what you really want to do. It
may be time for another
career move. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Realize that you will be
emotional and get over it.
Focus on others and what you
can do to please. A trip will
end up changing your way of
thinking or even your future


THE LAST WORD

lifestyle. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Uncertainties about your liv-
ing arrangements or anything
to do with your personal rela-
tionship will make you think
about your future. Get out
with friends you trust and dis-
cuss your dilemma. You will
get great support and
alternatives. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Don't be fooled by what
someone tells you today. Use
your intuition and read
between the lines or you will
make a mistake, causing a rift
with someone special. Travel
will be your best bet if you
want to avoid the turmoil at
home. ****
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Put your emotions aside
and you will easily gain
ground in every aspect of
your life. Matters pertaining
to work are looking very posi-
tive. Communications will be
your best asset. Don't hesitate

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): You will be walking a
fine line today. Honesty will
rule, but you don't have to
divulge your secrets. Changes
made at home will benefit you
both financially and profes-
sionally. Don't let situations
get blown out of proportion.

SAGHITARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21): You may have to
rethink some of the plans
you've been making. Try not
to jump from one thing to
another. Money matters must
be cleared up. Pay off old
debts before you incur new
ones. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): Do a little soul
searching and ask yourself
some very pertinent ques-
tions about your motives and
your direction. Be true to
yourself, and start moving in a
direction more suitable to
your needs. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Don't let the little
things bother you so much.
Focus on what you can do and
follow through. Avoid any
confrontation with authorities.
Now is not the time to take
chances, speak in anger or
make promises you won't
keep. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Expand your horizons
by joining new interest
groups. Money matters will
improve if you budget and
invest in something secure
and long-term. It's OK to want
to be generous, but don't go
into debt trying to impress
someone. *****

DEAR ABBY


Rude remarks and behavior

create neighborhood stress


DEAR ABBY: My family
and I have lived in this subdi-
vision for 10 years. We are
friendly with our neighbors.
All of the children here play
wonderfully together and are
of various ages.
One of my neighbors,
"Rachel," and I were very
close at one time, but we are
recovering from a fallout
involving her eldest daughter.
We are trying to repair the
friendship, but it has reached
the point that I hate living
here.
Rachel is jealous of anyone
I spend time with if it's not
her. She is constantly out in
her yard, and I feel like she
watches everything I do and
who eomes and goes. When I
spend time with other neigh-
bors, she retaliates with rude-
ness and - with negative,
insulting comments and
behavior.
How can I get across to her
that although we may have
been close friends at one
time, we're now only friendly
neighbors? - WANTS TO
MOVE IN OHIO
DEAR WANTS TO
MOVE: It appears Rachel has
emotionally regressed to the
grammar school level, where
children assume that if they
are friends they "own" each
other. I see no reason to issue
any proclamations. Get your
message across by continuing
to have an active social life
with neighbors you enjoy and


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com

ignoring her sulkiness. If she
makes a nasty comment, tell
her: "You know, sniping is a
very unattractive trait. It
makes me want to see less of
you rather than more."
DEAR ABBY: My elderly
mother lives in a small effi-
ciency apartment. Last year,
my out-of-town siblings - all
of whom live within 50 miles
- visited her on Christmas
Day with gifts she could not
possibly use.
One sister brought a set of
heavy crystal glasses.
(Mother's hands shake, and
she uses a plastic drinking
cup with a handle.) Another
sister brought a silver tea
service (which I had to pack
in a closet for her). My broth-
er brought her two pieces of
heavy luggage (which took up
all the room in a closet).
Mama no longer is up to
entertaining, and all those
expensive gifts were useless
to her. She has tried "hinting"
that she doesn't need things
like that, but they refuse to
listen.
It would be so much more


helpful if they would instead
cook a meal for Mama, or stop
by a restaurant and bring her
a meal when they visit. She
isn't up to cooking, and a gift
like that would not wind up
packed away for the next
generation.
When they visit, they usual-
ly stop by a restaurant and
eat, but they never stop to
consider that Mama would
love a meal, too. I try to cook
for her as often as I can, but I
have a disabled child at home
who is in and out of the hospi-
tal. When I do cook, I package
meals for her that she can
microwave and enjoy. What a
help it would be if my siblings
would do this.
Why don't people stop and
take into consideration how a
person lives and what his or
her needs are before buying a
gift? Thanks for letting me
vent. - CHRISTINE IN
SOUTH CAROLINA
DEAR CHRISTINE: It
may be that doing what you
suggest takes too much time
and energy. Or, in the case of
your siblings, the motivation
for the expensive gifts may be
guilt. You can't change them,
but I do recommend you
remind them frequently how
much your mother would
appreciate it if they would
bring her a nice meal when
they visit. You'll be doing
them - and her - a favor.

Whitehead, who had been in office since 1985, fell ill Tuesday and was hospitalized for cold or flu-like symptoms, according to a news release from UCSO. He died at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Sheriff Whitehead Jerry was a friend to everyone. He went out of his way to help others, just like his dad, Chief Deputy Garry Seay said at a press conference Wednesday afternoon. Our hearts are heavy and every one in the county and state is just numb. Whiteheads father, John Whitehead, was also Union County Sheriff. Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister, who grew up in Union County, said hes known Whitehead his entire life. He was one of the first people to congratu late me when I won state attorney, he said. Even though its not in his circuit, he con sidered me one of Lake Butlers hometown people and he went out of his way to congrat ulate us. He was a good small town sheriff. He knew how to do his job and also showed compassion when it was necessary. Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter called Whitehead a friend. He was a good man and mentor to me and Im going to miss him a lot, Hunter said. My heart goes out to his family and that commu nity for their loss. Columbia County Sheriffs Office Maj. Wallace Kitchings also knew Whitehead from their work as law enforcement officers. He was always willing to assist, he was a good man and he was also the dean of sher iffs, he said.

High schools here get Cs By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.com Columbia High Schools grade declined and Fort White High Schools grade remained steady, despite a record num ber of high schools statewide earning As, according to a report released Wednesday by the Florida Department of Education. Throughout Florida, nearly half of Floridas high schools earned an A grade for the past school year. Locally, CHS declined from a B in 2012 to a preliminary C in 2013, while FWHS remained steady at a C grade from 2012. Its hard to pinpoint the reason [for the decline], said School Superintendent Terry Huddleston. Im sure that Mr. Widergren at CHS, as well as district staff, will be breaking the numbers down to determine the areas where Columbia High dropped. The district and school staff will be looking at both schools numbers to see where cur riculum changes can be made to improve the overall school grades.

Human trafficking is compel ling someone to work or engage in a commercial sex act. Any minor exploited for commercial sex is a victim of human traf ficking. More than 30 North Central Florida law enforcement and justice system representatives spent close to two hours in Lake City Wednesday with Sen. Ted Yoho and representatives of the Department of Homeland Security thinking of ways to edu cate the public about the prob lem. According to Department of Homeland Security Statistics, in the United States in 2012 there were 894 human trafficking cases and 964 arrests. In 2013 there have been 1,777 cases and more than 1,877 people arrested. Yoho said hes learned that an estimated 22 million people a year in the world are traf ficked. He said other countries profit from human trafficking and there isnt a lot of publicity about it. If we are the nation we say we are, we need to look at our foreign policy and how we deal with people, he said. Yoho said its happening at restaurants where workers are illegal immigrants and paid less than minimum wage, with farm workers, domestic servants and in other areas of society. Dennis Davidson, with the DHS office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Scott Santoro, of the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, showed videos illustrating some of the indicators of human traf ficking.

TRAFFICKING continued on 3A GRADES continued on 3A Senators prepare springs legislation By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE A bipartisan group of senators is poised to introduce legislation to protect Floridas natural springs in what they expect to be the first in a series of measures aimed at improving lake, river and aquifer conditions statewide. Sen. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, one of the authors of the pending legislation, said a focus of the measure would set goals for the reduction of nutrients that pour into the springs. The proposal, still being finalized, comes as an equally ambitious proposal has already started to advance in the Senate that would focus on South Florida waterways and as the next House and Senate leaders have declared the states water supply to be a key issue of their terms. I think its a realization by senators, par ticularly the incoming leadership of the House and Senate, that our environment is a tremen dous asset and one that is jeopardized right now, Simmons said. The funding needed and the revenue sourc es have yet to be set, Simmons said. Audubon of Florida estimates that the work needed to increase the flow of water into the natural springs that run throughout central and northern Florida, while reduc ing pollutants entering the springs, could SPRINGS continued on 6A County to address details of radio system upgrades By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Columbia County offi cials will discuss the lat est details for improving county communications as they look at the possibil ity of adding an 800 MHz communications system update. The estimated cost of the project is $18.5 mil lion. Officials will discuss the proposal during the 5:30 p.m. Columbia County Commission meeting today at the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex Auditorium, 372 W. Duval St. Columbia County has been working on an upgrade to its countywide communi cations system, which has been dubbed by county offi cials the 800 MHz project or P25 project. The proposed project is basically changing the complete foundation by which we operate com munications where we completely go to a differ ent bandwidth, said Dale Williams, county manager. The 800 MHz system uses a different bandwidth than the county uses for its current communications system. However, there have been recent problems with static and outages as well as bad reception in parts of the county. The system that we work in now, pretty much there is no room for errors, Williams said. Everybody starts talk ing over one another, we have interference problems and what were trying to do is avoid that. I do not expect the board to approve this Thursday night, Williams said, What I expect the board to do is get and receive an update and to take steps to continue to move in this direction.

Judge K. Rodney May signed the order Tuesday for Anthony, who filed for bankruptcy in Florida earlier this year, claim-ing about $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. Court papers list Anthony as unemployed, with no recent income. Most of her liabilities are legal bills. Anthony was acquitted of murder in 2011 in the death her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, and has been in hiding since then. In November, the federal bankruptcy judge approved a settlement between Anthony and a Texas search group that helped look for Caylee whose remains were found in December 2008, about six months after she had gone missing in Orlando. Casey Anthony waited a month to report the toddler missing and was arrested in October 2008. The nationally televised trial lasted for six weeks and ended in her acquit-tal on the murder charge, but she was convicted on charges of lying to law enforcement. Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery will be allowed to have an unsecured claim of $75,000 in Anthony’s bankruptcy case under the terms of the settlement. It’s unclear if Equusearch will see any of the money. According to a court document signed by May, the discharge does not dis-miss the case. “It does not determine how much money, if any, the trustee will pay to credi-tors,” the document said. “Most, but not all, types of debts are discharged if the debt existed on the date the bankruptcy case was filed.” Some debts are not discharged during a bank-ruptcy case, including most taxes, domestic support obligations, student loans and debts for personal injuries or death caused by the debtor’s operation of a motor vehicle, vessel, or aircraft while intoxicated.Firefighters find body, rescue dog OCALA — Fire officials say they found a body inside an Ocala home fol-lowing a fire. The fire broke out late Tuesday and officials found the body early Wednesday morning. The Ocala Star-Banner reports officials couldn’t initially determine the sex of the victim. Assistant Fire Chief Brian Stoothoff told the newspa-per firefighters received the first call shortly before 9 p.m. and that flames were shooting from the roof when they arrived a few minutes later. The fire was under control by 9:20 p.m. Russell Kirk, who lives across the street, says he saw the fire and ran to the front door, but it was locked. He says his girlfriend called 911 while he checked other doors. The pool door was unlocked and he rescued a dog from a cage.Positive ID made on attacker bear LONGWOOD — Wildlife authorities have positively identified a bear that mauled a woman who was walking her dogs ear-lier this month. But wildlife authorities said Wednesday that the bear won’t be euthanized since she was captured with two of her cubs. Two other bears were euthanized after the attack on suspicions that they may have been responsible for the woman’s injuries. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials say the mother bear and her two cubs will receive temporary care from Busch Gardens in Tampa.Timberlake has year’s top iTunes albumNEW YORK B eyonce’s new album was released just last week, but it’s already the second bestselling album on iTunes this year. Apple announced Tuesday that the diva’s self-titled album is behind only Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience.” Beyonce’s fifth album sold more than 617,000 units in three days. Albums from Imagine Dragons, Jay Z and Drake round out the top 5. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have the top-selling song with “Thrift Shop.” Their hit, “Can’t Hold Us,” placed fifth. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” ‘’Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons and Pink’s “Just Give Me a Reason” ranked second, third and fourth. “Skyfall” is the year’s top-selling movie and “Breaking Bad” is the leading TV show. Candy Crush Saga, King.com Limited is the top free app for iPhones and iPads. Candy Crush is also the top paid app for iPads. The top paid app for iPhones is Minecraft, Pocket Edition, Mojang.Shooting victim’s family sues Aaron Hernandez HARTFORD — Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been sued by the family of a man he’s accused of kill-ing while police investigate the death of another person on the periphery of that case. The wrongful-death lawsuit was filed Monday in Superior Court in New Bedford, Mass., according to The Herald-News, based in nearby Fall River. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the June 17 shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-profes-sional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend. He is held without bail. The lawsuit alleges Hernandez “maliciously, willfully, wantonly, recklessly or by gross negligence caused Odin Lloyd to suffer personal injuries that directly resulted in his death.” The Lloyd family’s attorney, Kevin J. Phelan, declined to comment on Tuesday. ‘Poppins’ among 25 films to be preserved WASHINGTON — Just in time for a new movie about the making of “Mary Poppins,” the 1964 Disney classic starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke has been selected for preservation at the Library of Congress so future generations of Americans can see it. Curators said it was a coincidence that they selected “Mary Poppins” just ahead of its 50th anniversary and during the release of the new Disney film “Saving Mr. Banks,” which is about the making of the movie. Steve Leggett, program coor-dinator for the library’s National Film Preservation Board, said “Mary Poppins” had been on the short list of picks many times before. “It’s just a title that everyone has seen and recognizes, and the musical numbers and just the Julie Andrews and the shim-shim-a-ree — it’s just become a real, imbued part of our culture,” he said.

He called it modern-day slavery. “More people are enslaved today that at any other time in history,” he said, noting that the traffickers don’t need shackles or chains anymore, because they use fear through sexual assault, threat of deportation and other forms of intimidation. He suggested local law enforcement agencies form a task force to deal with the human trafficking issue before it becomes more prevalent in Florida. The major concepts discussed during the meeting included the need to (1) Prevent human traf-ficking through outreach and training; (2) Protect victims with a centered approach to law enforce-ment investigations and immigration laws and (3) Prosecute by following through with law enforce-ment investigations. Authorities also learned about the Blue Campaign, a program launched by the Department of Homeland Security in 2010 to end human trafficking. Yoho offered help to local law enforcement departments indicating his office would help them apply for federal grants to attack human trafficking. “Our goal is to make sure in our communities, it’s zero tolerance for human trafficking,” he said. TRAFFICKINGContinued From 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterClay County Sheriff’s Office Cpt. Barry Abramowitz asks what can be done to enhance the penalties of those involved in human trafficking. The number of high schools in Florida receiv-ing an A grade increased 17 percent, according to FDOE data. From 2011 to 2013, the number of high schools evaluated as “A” schools increased from 148 (31 percent) to 240 (48 per-cent) in 2013. The number of B schools declined 17 percent from 47 percent to 30 percent. Statewide, the preliminary number of high schools earning C’s increased two percent since 2011, jumping from 72 schools to 87 schools. CHS held a B grade for three years prior to 2013, but this year the school dropped. FDOE penal-ized them for not having adequate growth for at-risk students. Only 47 percent of the school’s students scored satisfactory or high-er on reading tests, and only 54 percent scored sat-isfactory or higher on math scores. Fort White High School earned a C last year, but held a B grade for four years prior to 2012. FDOE also penalized FWHS for not having adequate growth for at-risk students. According to department reports, 55 percent of students at FWHS scored satisfactory or higher on end-of-course reading tests, and only 54 scored satisfactory or high-er on end-of-course math exams. In July, the Florida Department of Education released school grades for middle school and elemen-tary schools across the county. Seven schools in Columbia County received lower grades than the year before, three schools remained steady and one school improved. “It’s really hard to compare [elementary and sec-ondary schools] because of the number of changes in the school grading pro-cess,” Huddleston said. “There’s just been so many changes in the last couple years in the grading scale you can’t compare them.” The Columbia County School District used dif-ferent models for instruc-tion last year. But this year they implemented the Florida Continuous Improvement Model dis-trict-wide to ensure that students mastered the standards being taught. Designed to engage the student, Huddleston said the model allows teachers to use various assess-ments to discover whether their stu-dents have mastered material at each grade level. If a student fails the assessment, a teacher will be required to reteach the lessons. “With more high schools earning A’s, it is clear that our teachers are succeed-ing in providing Florida students with a quality edu-cation,” Gov. Rick Scott said in a news release announc-ing the numbers. But the high grades will also spark tougher stan-dards under a State Board of Education rule, adopt-ed in 2011, that requires the standards to rise if 75 percent of any group of schools makes the two highest marks. State offi-cials said Wednesday this marked the first time the new rule has been used. For example, high schools will now have to score 70 percent of the points avail-able on the state’s grading system, up from 66 percent, to get an A. The stan-dard will increase from 62 percent to 65 percent for a B, and there will be smaller increases in the scores nec-essary for C and D grades. “The bar continues to rise, and we have to just continue to work harder to meet that,” Huddleston said. “In the past, when the bar was raised, we might not have hit it in the first year. But, our teachers buckled down and our stu-dents buckled down. They work harder, and we meet the expectations.” As a last minute attempt to ensure stability in school grades, the state Board of Education implemented a policy over the summer that kept schools from dropping more than one letter grade during transition. The state Department of Education is currently moving toward Common Core State Standards, a more rigorous form of instruction than the current Next Generation State Standards. Though seven schools in the state benefited from this policy, schools in Columbia County did not require the assistance, according to state reports. Counties surrounding Columbia received mixed grades. Hamilton County dropped over the last three years, ending in an F grade for 2013. Gilchrist County’s two schools both earned A grades, while Suwannee County high schools both earned C rankings for the past school year. Union County earned a B grade, declining from an A grade the year before. GRADESContinued From 1A due diligence.” The proposed upgrade encompasses up to 10 communications towers countywide. The county has communications tow-ers and some are fine, but others will need to be upgraded and some replaced. Radio wave equipment and other infrastructure equipment will need to be purchased and radios in county vehicles will have to be upgraded in order to receive the new signal. Land will need to be purchased for the new towers and backup gen-erators added to each site in case of power interrup-tion. County officials on Thursday will also hear an update on the salary survey that was request-ed earlier in the year. Results from the survey were received Tuesday though it is only a rough draft. “Once it’s in final form there needs to be some strategies formed to carry out the recom-mendations of the sur-vey and those strategies need to be discussed by the board,” Williams said. “I personally do not see anything related to the survey being imple-mented until the next fis-cal year.” The board has said that when it received the sur-vey it would consider giv-ing county employees a bonus. “I don’t expect the commissioners to discuss a bonus,” Williams said. “I don’t know in what amount it may be, but that is a pos-sibility. Bonuses are non-recurring — you pay for them one time and you don’t have to pay for them again. The board has indi-cated if they weren’t able to implement pay raises this year, they may entertain a bonus.” COUNTYContinued From 1A ‘The bar continues to rise and we have to just continue to work harder to meet that.’ — Terry Huddleston, Superintendent of schoolsBy the numbers17% increase in the number of Florida high schools receiving ‘A’ grades17% decrease in the number of Florida high schools receiving ‘B’ grades2% increase in the number of Florida high schools receiving ‘C’ grades

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Saving our water – the work begins Compromise to the rescue W ashington is try-ing to rescue itself. The Republican method is too much compromise, although that’s still better than none. President Barack Obama’s strategy is policy sleights of hand and staff shuffles. While no piece of this takes us where we need to go, the GOP at least is stumbling in the right direction. Let’s visit first with the negative side of what Republicans did. Backing a deal done between the budget chairs of the House and Senate, House Republicans agreed to still more excessive federal spending that is also excessive national jeopardy. Especially considering that there was no simultaneous agreement on long-term, crucial entitlement reforms to prevent debt catastro-phe, this would be highly objection-able if it were not for three matters that good sense forbids ignoring. One is that the deal cancels some reckless sequestration cuts few had wanted to go into effect in the first place. Two is that the Democrats also did some truly commend-able yielding. Three is that the Democrats were highly unlikely to yield more and that the alternative to this shaking of hands and final Senate passage could have been a government shutdown. That would have shut down any GOP chance of obtaining power sufficient to do something more important some-day. ... Let’s change the subject, said Obama, promising that he would devote himself for the rest of his term to reducing income inequal-ity. And how better to start than with a false assertion, namely saying that middle class incomes have been stagnant since the late 1970s. Actually, according to the Congressional Budget Office, they had been scooting upwards at a healthy pace prior to the recent recession. To make everything more evensteven, our leader wants to raise the minimum wage. Does he know that only a tiny percent of hourly work-ers earn the minimum wage? That average minimum wage earners are in households that have an overall decent income? That the minimal good it will do for some will be off-set by all the people who will lose their jobs or have their work hours reduced? Overlooking the fact that virtually all poverty increases in the decades before the last recession were a consequence of immigration, anoth-er of his answers is to continue importing uneducated, unskilled workers in numbers too great to be assimilated. Do they consequently get bliss here? Some do, but some suffer. There’s more, some of it complicated, none of it quite what’s needed, and even if his new staff-ers advise him more ably than past ones, I seriously doubt any significant enlightenment will occur minus an ideological reversal nowhere signaled. What’s needed in the absence of significantly more Democratic yielding in Congress is to put Republicans in control of the Senate as well as the House, a pos-sibility I would have ruled out until lately. W ith a $1 billion state budget surplus projected for next year, everybody wants a big-ger piece of the pie. Nearly half of the surplus will go to reduced auto registration fees, if Gov. Rick Scott has his way. A sizable portion should also go to preserving North Florida’s freshwater rivers, lakes and springs, the lifeblood of the local ecosys-tem – not to mention the local economy. Five state senators, including District 5’s Charlie Dean, are collaborating to make it happen. Author David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, told the News Service of Florida his bill “will encourage the use of recycled water and water storage for farmers and developers, limit how much water can be withdrawn from springsheds, and create protection zones intended to reduce pollutants from entering the water bodies.” The projected cost isn’t yet known.Nor are the details, in which the devil often dwells. The “one-size-fits-all” approach of an early draft we saw of Simmons’ bill gave us pause. What’s good for Silver Spring may not be best for our Ichetucknee. We’ll wait and see, and hope for the best.There are other good signs on the local water-preservation front as well, according to the News Service of Florida. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has included $5.2 mil-lion in next year’s budget for keeping nutri-ents out of North Florida springs, and the Department of Environmental Protection has added $15 million for springs restoration to its 2014 budget. Not enough to undo decades of neglect, but surely a good start. It’s too early to tell how much of this will actually pan out, but lawmakers statewide just may have awakened to what’s at stake with our endangered rivers, lakes and springs – and come to realize the issue is every bit as much about economics as environmentalism. “We all know that Florida’s economy is tied to tourism, but there’s no reason why it can’t be tied to ecotourism,” incoming Senate President Andy Gardiner said recently. Welcome words, and just what folks in Columbia County have been saying all along. We’re glad to finally have some company.T his is the slightly twisted time of year when we look back with fond-ness, horror, disbelief and no little amount of wincing to review what came out of the mouths of our politicians since January. Our pols are as irrepressible as ever. After House Republicans shut down the federal government for 16 days, costing the economy at least $25 billion, some couldn’t stop boasting. Rep. Michele Bachman, R-Minn., exulted, “We’re very excited. It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it.” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., said of the shutdown, “We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.” Not to worry, Congressman. Nobody does. All year, politicians argued about immigration reform, trying to fig-ure out how to treat America’s 11 million undocumented workers. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, gained no Hispanic votes after saying of immigrants, “For every one who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.” Don Young, R-Alaska, observed, “My father had a ranch. We used to hire 50 to 60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes.” President Barack Obama, whose ratings plummeted after the botched rollout of his health care plan, tried to remain above the fray but couldn’t resist jabbing oppo-nents. “I’m taking my charm offen-sive on the road,” Obama vowed. “A Texas barbeque with Ted Cruz, a Kentucky bluegrass concert with Rand Paul, and a book-burning with Michele Bachmann.” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, had a bad year. Democrats chided him for getting little done but holding 40 meaningless votes to repeal Obamacare. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called Boehner, “A coward! He’s a cow-ard!” Tea Partiers threatened to dump Boehner as speaker. The three moderate Republicans left just shook their heads. “I’m what you’d call a regular guy with a big job,” Boehner said. Later he said discon-solately, “I need this job like I need a hole in the head.” Lest anyone miss Sarah Palin after she quit as Alaska’s governor, she began campaigning against people she claims hate Christmas. “I bet Charles Darwin never under-stood this: If the world could be described as truly survival of the fit-test, why would people collectively be stricken with the spirit of gener-osity in December?” She also noted, “Atheism’s track record makes the Spanish Inquisition seem like Disneyland by comparison.” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., expressed outrage at Republican plans to cut more spending. “The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make,” she insisted. Democrats then defended $25 billion in subsidies to farm con-glomerates. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., poster boy for partisanship, said: “I have trouble listening to what (Dick Cheney) says sometimes because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking. ... He’s just angry because the president doesn’t shoot old men in the face. But by the way, when he was done speaking, did he just then turn into a bat and fly away?” As Congress debated an epidemic of rapes in the military, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., scoffed: “Gee whiz. The hormone level created by nature sets in place the possibility for these types of things to occur.” The hottest topic remains Obamacare, ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court. Rep. Jim Bridenstein, R-Okla., might be sketchy on how government works but knows his mind: “Just because the Supreme Court rules on some-thing doesn’t necessarily mean that that’s constitutional.” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tried to insist funding Obamacare is akin to appeasing Hitler. “If you go to the 1940s, Nazi Germany, look, we saw in Britain, Neville Chamberlain, who told the British people, ‘Accept the Nazis. ... We can’t possibly stand against them.’” The people at “Vital Speeches” are quivering.

It was done through the High Springs Lions Club Madness and Mayhem 2 Haunted House and Graveyard held this past October the largest fundraising event held in the history of the club. The High Springs Lions Club had never before attempted a feat of such magnitude. It took the cooperation from the Lions, a few civic-minded local busi nesses and other volunteers from the community to pull it off. Over sixty volunteers devoted hundreds of hours planning, meeting, rehears ing, and working event nights for one of the scariest haunts in Florida. All of this was done for a good cause. Recipients of the funds raised from the HSLC Madness and Mayhem 2 Haunted House and Graveyard were discussed and decided at one of the earliest committee meet ings. For the past four years, the HSLC had provid ed underprivileged children with Christmas presents. This year, they wanted to continue the tradition. So, the Catholic Charities Community Outreach Christmas Wishes was one of the charities chosen. The same as the preceding years, Catholic Charities chose the children and provided the HSLC Lions with their gender, age, and Christmas wish list. Names of the children remained anonymous. A budget of $40 was spent on each child. Members of the Lions club volunteered many hours to shop to fulfill the childrens Christmas wishes. Lions Club mem bers Phil and Stephanie Griffith took on the shop ping for a family of nine chil dren and said, I spent three hours at Toys r Us and had a lot of fun choosing gifts for the children. Lion Mark Moomaws wife, Amy, and their daugh ter Alyssa bought gifts for 16 of the 38 children on the Catholic Charities list. Moomaw said, They spent two days shopping for all those children. The High Springs Lions Clubs Madness and Mayhem was an incredibly successful fundraiser and will continue as an annual event to help provide great things, such as Christmas gifts to needy children, for their local community. High Springs Lions Club put on their biggest fundraiser at Halloween in order for local kids to have a happy Christmas. PHOTOS COURTESY TERRY ONEAIL The Lions Club of Lake City put on an October haunted house to raise money to buy Christmas gifts for local children.

Members Stanley Cox, Steve Witt, Fred Lammers, and Barbara Meyers met with Blaze Bedenbaugh, President of Student Council and Zander Frazier, Vice President of Student Council. Tabatha Hudson and Jennifer Robinson, teacher sponsors of Eastside Student Council, expressed their gratitude for the generous donation.

We are so happy to have this quality of nursing available here at our hospital. cost in the hundreds of mil lions of dollars. The biggest expense would be the need to purchase land around the springs. Eric Draper, executive director of Audubon of Florida, called the grow ing attention from state lawmakers on the need to address water issues excit ing, but added that hes still waiting to see what measures are actually pro posed. I think the test will be whether these legislators have the stomach to actu ally regulate the pollu tion that is going into the springs, Draper said. The Legislature will eventually need to go to the source of the problem. Draper considers land acquisition the top prior ity, followed by managing the recharge areas that ensure rainfall goes into the ground to help re-sup ply the springs. Other key areas to address are the minimum flow levels that can deter mine if a spring is facing harm and the expensive proposition of replacing septic tanks with central ized sewage systems, Draper said. Will Abberger, the chairman of the Floridas Water and Land Legacy constitutional amendment campaign and director of conservation finance for The Trust for Public Land, was equally hope ful that lawmakers will take meaningful action on water quality and quantity issues. I dont know what their motivation is, I hope theyre beginning to understand what a huge need this is for the state, Abberger said. Abbergers group is proposing a constitutional amendment that would fun nel $10 billion over 20 years into land-conservation and environmental efforts. SPRINGS Continued From 1A

PAUL BUCHANAN /Lake City Reporter Florida State Quarterback Jameis Winston warms up for a game earlier this year. Manziel offers lessons to Winston on living with fame By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press NEW YORK Famous Jameis has replaced Johnny Football as the face of college football. Florida State quarter back Jameis Winston won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, last years win ner, finished fifth in the voting and seemed to enjoy a relaxing trip to Manhattan, playing the role of supporting actor to Winstons leading man. Manziel was the first freshman to win the Heisman, and it helped turn him into one of the biggest celebrities in sports. Not all the atten tion he got after winning the award was good. Winston is now the sec ond freshman to win the Heisman. He has a chance to lead the top-ranked Seminoles to a national championship next month against No. 2 Auburn, though the entire story of his season has included an unsettling chapter. In many ways, Manziel has been where Winston is headed. Lifes going to change, Manziel said. This is an extremely big deal. Manziel basked in the spotlight after winning the Heisman and decided to live loud and large. His road trips made headlines. His tweets were analyzed. He got tossed from a frat party and overslept a meeting at the Manning Passing Academy. Real potential trouble came when the NCAA looked into whether he signed autographs for money. He got off with a half-game suspension. Theres a lot of scru tiny if you dont walk a fine line, he said. I was a little bit uncharacteristic, a little bit out of the box, and I caught some flak for it. Figured it out a little bit as the year went on and continued to live my life and learn as I went along. It was tough, but I had to do it. Manziels missteps seem quaint consider ing the allegations that Winston was facing. Last month, a year-old sexual assault complaint against him became pub lic, and the Tallahassee Police gave the dormant case to the state attor neys office for a full investigation. A female Florida State student claimed Winston raped her. Winstons law yer said the sex was con sensual. The state attor ney determined there was not enough evidence to charge Winston, announc ing that decision four days before Heisman votes were due. Winston says he felt vin dicated, but also acknowl edged needing to grow up some.

I’m always going to have my personali-ty. I’m always going to have my character. But I have to become a man.” Manziel said he was impressed with the way Winston handled his busi-ness on the field while deal-ing with problems away from it. “I had to go through controversy and I had to go through some things,” Manziel said. “To see him at such a young age, to put his head down and to focus on his teammates and where they are and where they’re headed ... I do give him a lot of credit for that with all the scrutiny he’s under. I feel like he’s done a tremendous job of focusing on his team and on his family and what mat-ters most.” Manziel, a third-year junior, can declare for the NFL draft after this sea-son. What could be his last game will be New Year’s Eve against Duke in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. In his Heisman follow-up season, Manziel’s passing stats improved as he stayed in the pocket more often. Both his completion per-centage (69.1) and yards per attempts (9.5) went up. If he does go pro — and it’d be an upset if he didn’t — he’ll again be the center of attention as one of the most scrutinized players in the draft. The college game will belong to Winston, and Manziel said he should embrace his newfound fame. “Live it up. Enjoy it,” Manziel said. “Continue to be yourself and don’t let anybody change from that. You’re going to have to adapt to how life is going to be after this. “Stay focused. Stay true to yourself and continue to be the person that you are.” WINSTON: Growing into an adult Continued From Page 1B Saban: ‘There were no talks’ with TexasBy JOHN ZENORAssociated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama coach Nick Saban and the football team are moving on. Saban has put to rest the speculation that he would replace Mack Brown at Texas by striking a new deal with Alabama. For the third-ranked Crimson Tide, the focus is on getting over the loss to Auburn and trying to finish the season strong in the Jan. 2 Sugar Bowl against No. 11 Oklahoma. Saban had said Friday night after agreeing to a new contract reportedly worth about $7 million a year that he planned to retire at Alabama. He said “there were no talks” between his repre-sentatives and Texas and pointed to comments on ESPN that he “never con-sidered going to Texas.” “I think I’ve already made a reaction to that,” Saban said. “Don’t you watch ESPN? Didn’t you see what they put down across the bottom line. That’s my reaction to it. “I don’t have any more reactions to it. I think it’s kind of over so why do we want to talk about that? We look forward. I’m looking forward. I made a commit-ment to our players that are here and I’m happy to be committed to them and I want them to make the same kind of commitment to the program and to their future success.” Brown announced his resignation at Texas on Saturday. Several Texas regents and a former regent were involved in a meeting with Saban’s agent last January to gauge the coach’s inter-est in coming to Texas. Saban found the best way to quash that talk: Re-upping with the Tide.

DEAR ABBY: I married “Larry” five years ago, and he is good to me. I have two beautiful grandchildren who are my daughter’s. If I don’t see them once a week I miss them. (They are 2 1/2 and 16 months old.) Larry doesn’t miss the babies or want to see them once a week. Sometimes when they come to the house, he doesn’t speak to them or play with them. He says he wants his peace and quiet at the house. Larry’s great with the babies in public. He is also good about playing with our friends’ kids. But he doesn’t want the grandchildren to spend the night here because he doesn’t want his sleep disturbed. (He can get up at 4 a.m. to go fishing, though.) He has two sons and doesn’t mind if he hears from them only twice a year. He’s the type of person who says what he thinks without caring if it’s rude or hurtful. If you don’t like him, he can live without being friends with you. No one comes to visit us at our home. I miss my family, my daughter and the babies. Do I leave? — UNHAPPY IN THE SUNSHINE STATE DEAR UNHAPPY: If you are the one making all the concessions, make a list of Larry’s good qualities, and then make one that includes how he refuses to compromise, makes you feel lonely and isolated, and says things without regard to whether they are hurt-ful to others. Place them side by side, and you will have your answer. DEAR ABBY: After recently meeting my older brother’s male roommate, a few things occurred that make me wonder if my brother is gay. Whether he is or not doesn’t matter to me, and I don’t feel it’s my business to find out unless he chooses to share it with me. Although I am a strong supporter of the gay and lesbian commu-nity, my concern is that because we were raised in an extremely conser-vative home, my brother may think I still hold those beliefs and may be reluctant to confide in me. I don’t want to make a wrong assumption about his sexuality, nor do I want to force him out of the closet before he’s ready. How can I let him know I support him, no matter what, with-out crossing the line? — LIBERAL GIRL DEAR LIBERAL GIRL: There are ways to communicate your feel-ings to your brother with-out being direct. If you are still in school, consid-er joining a gay/straight alliance. If you see some-thing in the news about a gay issue, call it to his attention and say some-thing positive. Or, if you think that might make him uncomfortable, how about giving him a hug and telling him how lucky you feel to have him as a brother and that you will love him forever? (Come to think of it, a straight sibling might also appre-ciate hearing it.) DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Problems at home will develop if you are overly emotional. Try to maintain your equilib-rium. Temper tantrums due to added stress will surface, taking a toll on the relation-ships you have with friends and family. Keep busy and you’ll avoid trouble. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Industry parties or getting together with clients or peers will result in a different perspective on and greater knowledge about how to make your work relationships more effective; however, refrain from sharing personal information. An emotional relationship will improve if you offer romance. ++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Be creative when it comes to your financial concerns. A job you take on will be a learn-ing experience that will lead to new ways of raising your earning potential. Recognizing what you do well will help you explore new possibilities. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Don’t let moodiness take over. Embrace what’s being offered instead of pushing some-one away who just wants to help. Show good will and generosity and you will be surprised by the response you receive. Be mindful of those you love. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do the unexpected. Believe in your abilities and head in a direction that entices you. Taking an aggressive approach won’t be well received by everyone, but standing up for your rights will end up being to your benefit. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Participate in organized events that are geared toward helping others. Your generos-ity will be welcomed by outsiders but criticized by someone who expects your undivided attention. Don’t fold under pressure. Benevolence will bring high returns. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Learning, sharing your experiences, and discussing future plans that can help you advance should be your priority. Problems at home can be expected if someone expects too much from you. Make it clear what you will tolerate and what you will not. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Love and romance should be high on your list. Taking time to go out with someone special and enjoy an inter-est you both share will bring you closer together. A unique offering will put you in a dominant position. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Decorate or move things around to bet-ter accommodate your life-style and plans for the fes-tive season. A change will brighten your outlook and impress someone you care about. Actions speak louder than words. Take care of personal paperwork. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Avoid unpredictable situations. Step back and focus on what you can do for the people you love most.
