Aircraft parts stolen from Timco of
Lake City totaling several hundred
thousand dollars were recovered by
the Lake City Police Department with
the help of federal agencies.
During the months of May, June and
July of 2005, Timco reported the theft
of airplane parts. Some of the parts
missing were jet engine starters, jet
engine shut-off valves and jet auto
speed brake controls.
The items stolen were suspected to
be worth several hundred thousand
dollars. However, Capt. Gary Laxton,
public information officer for the Lake
City Police Department, said that just
one of the jet engine starters could be
worth as much as $50,000.
"Diligent employees checking the
work orders started getting suspi-
cious," Laxton said. "At first, only a few

Boy's claim ,
under dispute
kindergartner's claims that his
bus driver taped his mouth
shut are coming under dispute
as other children told
investigators they didn't see it
happen, Pinellas County
school officials said.
A school district investigator
has interviewed eight of the
10 or so children on the bus
when the taping allegedly
occurred and none said they
saw it, district Superintendent
Clayton Wilcox said Thursday.
The driver and an adult aide
on the bus, who both could be
fired if the allegations are true,
also have denied the boy's
The 5-year-old told his
parents Monday that the
driver taped his mouth shut
with duct tape because he was
talking during the
20-minute ride from Dunedin
Elementary School.
"All indications are that
that's not what happened,"
said Wilcox, adding that he
had been told there was no
duct tape on the bus. "We
have nothing to corroborate
what the young man has said."

The boy's parents refused to
let him speak to the
investigator Thursday.
Louis Kwall, the family's
attorney, said he canceled the
meeting because Wilcox
suggested on television earlier
Thursday that it appeared the
boy was lying.
"Wilcox has already made
up his mind," Kwall said.
"What kind of trust can we
have in a system where the
superintendent issues a
statement before the
investigation is complete?"
Considering Wilcox's
comments, Kwall said he
could see no reason to permit
the boy to be questioned.

advanced training for leaders
of explosives disposal teams,
is unique because it includes a
replica of a town for soldiers to
go in and out of buildings and
practice locating and disarm-
ing bombs in realistic settings.
At the school's fake air-
port, a soldier in a 75-pound
bomb disposal suit used an
upright motorized scooter to
travel from an equipment van

to the building. Once inside,
he used a portable X-ray cam-
era to take a picture of a
bomb at a security check
point. He wheeled back out,
and conferred with other
team members about disarm-
ing the bomb. The X-ray pic-
ture quickly provided a
detailed view of the small
canister and the wires
contained within.

Soldiers said the airport is
especially important because
of domestic terrorist threats.
The realistic feel of the build-
ing helps heighten his stu-
dents' senses, an instructor
"We want there to be as
much realism as we can give

Workers discover segregationist-era signs

Associated Press
Construction crews remodel-
ing an old five-and-dime store
uncovered a relic found most
often in museums and history
books: the words "WHITE"
and "COLORED" painted
above the spots where water
fountains once hung.
"Well, I was pretty amazed,"
said Charles Moenning, the
head of construction on a proj-
ect to turn the old S.H. Kress
store into loft apartments and
retail space. "I have never seen
anything like that in my life, in
person, rather."
Black letters stand out from
the beige plaster walls, recall-
ing the days when segregation
ruled the South. Blacks and
whites were kept apart in
schools, public transportation
and accommodations.
Integration arrived here slowly
in the 1950s and 1960s, most
anxiously as nine black

"I used to shop downtown
when I was a kid and I used to
remember all of those signs,"
said 63-year-old Little Rock
Mayor Jim Dailey, who
dropped by the store Friday in
hopes of preserving the wall.
He said a Roman Catholic
priest had raised his aware-
ness about racial issues when
he was in high school in the
"He would talk about it's just
not fair that a young man who's
white can go to a movie and sit
in a certain place and a black
man cannot," Dailey said. "And
somebody can't drink out of a
certain water fountain."

Kress built the store on
Main Street in 1943 and it
remained a five-and-dime until
the 1960s when a drug store
moved in and occupied the
space until the 1990s.
Developer Frieda Nelson
Tirado recently purchased the
vacant three-story building.
Demolition workers clearing
the basement for parking
spaces were ripping out old
walls about two weeks ago
when someone noticed the let-
tering through the partially
demolished partition.
Moenning helped workers
remove the last of material
covering the words Thursday.
Marks on the wall, which
has sections of exposed
turquoise paint, suggest the

water fountains were once
separated by a partition.
While Little Rock is perhaps
best known for its high school
desegregation crisis, integra-
tion actually started in the city
a bit earlier, said Laura Miller, a
historian at the Central High
School National Historic Site.
"I believe it was right around
1955 and 1956 when represen-
tatives from the NAACP start-
ed asking downtown store
owners to desegregate water
fountains and things like that,"
she said. "And they did, quiet-
ly, without telling their white

downtown Little Rock wasn't
swift. In 1960, students from'
historically black Philander

Prostitution rings from
New York to Hawaii forced
more than 30 children as
young as 12 to have sex at
truck stops, hotels and broth-
els, Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales said Friday,
announcing a government
Nineteen people have been
arrested among 31 who have
been indicted for sexual traf-
ficking in children, taking
minors across state lines for
prostitution and other crimes,
Gonzales said.
The indictments, in
Michigan, New Jersey and
Pennsylvania, target the pur-
ported operators of four child
prostitution rings. Some of
the children had been report-
ed missing or had run away
because they had been
abused at home, FBI
assistant director Chris
Swecker said.
"The abhorrent acts
alleged in these charges
include children being herd-
ed around the country as sex
slaves, forced to work as
prostitutes in brothels and at
truck stops, and beaten at the
hands of pimps and
peddlers," Gonzales said at a
Justice Department news
The 'heightened federal
interest in stopping child
prostitution is critical since
pimps frequently take chil-
dren from one state to anoth-
er, making it harder for local
police to stop them, said John
Rabun, vice president of the
National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children. "If

Teen singer

is inspiration

Greta Smidt is 13 years old
and almost too good to be
true. She has a golden voice
and a golden heart. Smidt,
of Jennings, spent a portion
of last Saturday afternoon singing for
donations inside Lake City Mall.
She hopes to raise a total of $100,000
for the Hurricane Katrina Children's
Education Fund. In a little more than
three months, she has raised $10,000.
Smidt says she is not one to sit
around and do nothing where there is a
need. She sets a great example for all of
us. Her story is not the typical teenage
She is focused at an early age.
And she is very talented. Her strong
voice sends a message and broadcasts
sweet melodies as she brings
awareness to the plight of students who
have suffered through Hurricane
We all can learn from Greta Smidt's
example. She has shown us what it
means to truly give of one's self and
what it means to set goals and try to
achieve them. -

authored ban on cruel,

treatment of prisoners was a
near-total capitulation by the
White House. Five months ago,
Bush flatly threatened to veto

When it became clear that
some kind of restriction would

personally interceded to seek
an exemption for the CIA.
McCain was adamant that the
ban would apply to all U.S.

national security adviser,
Stephen Hadley, unsuccessfully
sought a provision allowing the
president to issue waivers from
the ban.
Votes in the Senate, 90 to 9,

passage of two defense bills to

"Social Security can and will be saved," the

"It will require the best efforts of both parties
and of both the executive and legislative

No, those stirring words were not President

may have heard a whisper that the oldest baby
boomers are only weeks away from turning 60.
Ready or not, 78 million Americans are
beginning to queue up for Medicare. The first

Turning 60 is what President Clinton - who
faces the milestone next year, as does
President Bush - used to call a high-class
problem. Consider the alternative.
Parade magazine bravely asserts "Life
Begins at 60." Television talkers assure us that
"60 is the new 40."
Attitudes about life after 60 have changed,
and many in the generation born between 1946
and 1964 plan to keep working, some into their
70s, at least part time. Many will be making a
virtue of necessity. The "golden years" came
with a company pension. Many boomers won't
have that financial cushion.
The way things are going, in 10 years 70 will
be the new 50, unless it's the new 40.
As the wave of 60-somethings builds, we can
be grateful that the economy isn't what it was
when Reagan promised to fix Social Security.
Reagan bragged at the aging conference that
his administration had been working to tame
inflation. They'd gotten it down to 9.6 percent.
Inflation this year has hovered around
3.8 percent.
Bush was the first president to miss the

Bush signs Medicaid

overhaul into law

Associated Press

Jeb Bush signed a bill Friday
that will begin the overhaul
of the Medicaid system, say-
ing it will provide better care
for patients while controlling
the quickly rising costs of
the program.
The overhaul, which was
the governor's top priority
this year, will shift patients
into private managed care
plans, which supporters say
will help Medicaid patients
stay healthier rather just
receiving treatment when
they've already become sick.
"I am delighted and hon-
ored to sign into law the sin-
gle biggest change and the

boldest reform that any state
has embarked on for the
Medicaid program," Bush
said. "I am absolutely confi-
dent that this reform will
yield better health care
results for Florida's most vul-
nerable citizens and create
more predictability in
management of our costs."
The changes will take
effect in Broward and Duval
counties and later be phased
in statewide.

Medicaid recipients will
choose a managed care
group, which will coordinate
their care. The government
will pay a premium - based
on the person's health - to
the managed care group.
Companies would get more
money for sicker patients.
Ideally, those in the plans
would see doctors more
often, and have problems
caught earlier. The managed
care plans would have an

incentive to keep the person
well, because it's more
expensive to treat big
problems later.
"Those who want to
defend the current system
are defending the indefensi-
ble. The outcomes in the cur-
rent system are poor," said
Agency for Health Care
Administration Secretary
Alan Levine. "Only 4 percent
of all women in the Medicaid
fee-for-service program are
getting mammograms.
That's absurd. That's 'not a

The program will also limit
cost growth to 8 percent over
the next five years, although
there are allowances for
growth in enrollment.

Lawmakers negotiate tax

breaks for Gulf Coast businesses

AP Tax Writer

Senate passed nearly $8 bil-
lion in tax breaks for Gulf
Coast businesses on Friday
with an exception drawn to
prohibit gambling from being
subsidized by taxpayer
The package follows
through on President Bush's
promise to create a special
business zone to rebuild
commerce and replace jobs

business investments and
offer additional write-offs for

and demolition and aid small
timber companies.
Lawmakers let individuals
who experienced losses from
hurricanes Rita and Wilma
claim some of the same assis-
tance already extended to
those hurt by Hurricane

Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.,
said the assistance will "help
us to help ourselves."
Just before the bill finally
passed, Sen. Trent Lott,
R-Miss., exposed the frustra-
tion of Gulf Coast lawmakers
working through the slow
process of getting help to
their communities.
"The people of the area
that have been damaged by
Hurricane Katrina cannot
wait any longer," Lott said
from the floor of the Senate,
striking his fist against a
lectern. "I expect this to be

done momentarily. If it's not,
there's going to be hell to pay
this day."
Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., led
the movement to deny help
to some recreational indus-
tries, arguing that lawmakers
would have a difficult time
explaining the decision to
subsidize gambling with
taxpayers' money.
At least two Republican
senators, Rick Santorum of
Pennsylvania and Sam
Brownback of Kansas,
agreed with the House deci-
sion to withhold federal tax
breaks for those industries.

Murders reach 10-year high in Boston

Associated Press

BOSTON - The execution-
style slaying of four young
men in a basement music stu-
dio this week cast a spotlight
on a crime wave that has
pushed murder in Boston to a
10-year high.
While -the murder rate
nationally has dropped over
the past decade, some cities
- such as Boston and
Philadelphia - are seeing it
spike. In Boston, the number
of slaying has more than dou-
bled in the past several years,
climbing from 31 in 1999 to 71
so far this year.
Criminologists blame the
increase in part on a decrease
in funding for neighborhood
policing because of the war on
terrorism; a demographic
bubble of teenagers and
young adults; and the scaling
back since the late 1990s of
after-school and anti-gang pro-
grams, such as midnight bas-
ketball leagues.
'The great successes we
had a decade ago is gone. We
let down our guard," said
James Alan Fox, a professor of
criminal justice at
Northeastern University and
author of five books on vio-

Murder rate up in some major cities
After close to a decade of declines, the murder rate in cities
such as Boston and Philadelphia is back on the rise.

lence and homicide. "The situ-
ation is not yet lost, but it
could get much worse."
Across the country, there
was an increase of almost
500,000 people between the
ages of 15 and 30 from 1990 to
2000, census numbers show.
The largest concentration of
those young adults - more
than 20 million - are now
between the ages of 20 and 24.
"In 1999, they predicted this
demographic bubble that we
see in the youth population,"
said Chris Sumner, the execu-

tive director of Boston's Ten-
Point Coalition, a group of
churches working to fight
crime. "I don't think we antici-
pated how violent it would be,
not just in Boston but through-
out the country."
"Our babies are dying by
the bucket," Sumner said.
On Tuesday night, four
young men were shot to death
in a home in the city's
Dorchester neighborhood. It
was the bloodiest crime in
Boston in a decade. The four,
ages 19 to 22, had attended

high school together and were
members of a local rap group
called Graveside.
No arrests have been made,
and police have refused to dis-
cuss a motive.
Police blame the rise in
murders in Boston on guns
and gangs. They have target-
ed hot spots, sweeping
through neighborhoods in a
search for fugitives and guns.
"I don't think these are the
bad old days," said Jack
Levine, director of the
Brudnick Center on Violence
at Northeastern University in
Boston. "We still have half the
homicides that we had in
1990, when we had more than
150 murders."
That year, the bloodiest in
Boston's history, there was a
killing every three days: A
high school student stabbed a
classmate to death. An ex-con
gunned down a man on a
Dorchester street with an AK-
47. A pack of teenagers raped
and murdered a woman in a
housing project.
In Philadelphia, there have
been 365 homicides so far this
year - up from 330 in 2004.
Baltimore has seen 259
killings, which is down from
276 in 2004, but up from 253 in

Family calls for rules on police chases

DA seeks death for

man accused of murder

Associated Press
prosecutor said Friday he will
seek the death penalty
against an 18-year-old
accused of killing the parents
of his 14-year-old girlfriend,
and no criminal charges will
be brought against the girl.
Lancaster County District
Attorney Don Totaro said
statements from the suspect,
David Ludwig, have exonerat-
ed Kara Beth Borden, and
convinced investigators that
she had no role in planning or
carrying out last month's
shootings of her parents.
'There was no plan or no
agreement to harm her
parents in any way," Totaro
Prosecutors allege Ludwig
killed Michael and Cathryn
Borden on Nov. 13 after an
argument about his relation-
ship with their daughter. Kara
Borden was with him when
he was captured the next day
in Indiana, after a high-speed
chase that ended with him
crashing his parents' car.
Totaro said reasons the
death penalty is justified
include that there was more

than one victim, and that the
couple's children were home
at the time.
New charges involving a
firearms violation and sexual
assault have been added
against Ludwig, Totaro said.
Prosecutors dropped a kid-
napping charge against
Ludwig, who fled the state
with Borden before being
captured in Indiana. He still
is charged with reckless
Ludwig said only that he
had no questions Friday
morning as he signed a docu-
ment waiving his preliminary
hearing, meaning the charges
against him were forwarded
to county court. His lawyer,
through a secretary, declined
to comment.
Police said Ludwig dropped
off the girl at her house about
5:30 a.m. on the morning of
the killings, after the teens
had spent the night together.,
When the girl called him to
say her parents caught her
coming in late, Ludwig
returned to the house at her
request, authorities said.
Police said he carried two
guns and a hunting knife with

Associated Press
ORLANDO - The family of
two Haitian half-siblings killed
when a stolen pickup truck
chased by deputies crashed
into their vehicle called Friday
for a change in state law gov-
erning police pursuits.
Their announcement -
which took place at the inter-
section where Frantz Leandre
and Carole Leandre were
killed in May - came a day
after the Orange County
Sheriff's Department sus-
pended five deputies for their
involvement in the chase.
"It's not enough: It's' fit,'
-nriough for the family," Darly
Joseph, the victims' brother,
said in front of two crosses

h L

bearing photographs of the
Leandres, who were both 42.
Several deputies in patrol
cars and a helicopter pursued
Jonathan Kornexl, accused of
using his mother's pickup
truck without permission, for
29 minutes, even though he
drove through lawns, blew
traffic lights and committed at
least 30 traffic violations,
according to a sheriff's office
Professional Standards
Division report. Investigators
say he ran a red light and hit
the Leandres' car broadside.
Sheriff's policy calls for
deputies to abandon chase on
cases like car theft if the
'pui-uit'makes public streets '
too dangerous. The office had
previously defended deputy
efforts, saying they were

merely following - not
pursuing - the suspect.
"We have to make sure this
doesn't happen to any other
families," said J. Willie David
III, president of the Florida
Civil Rights Association,
which - helped organize
Friday's news conference.
Orange County Sheriff's
Chief Steve Jones said the
department was already revis-
ing its policy, including a
change that would require the
sheriff's Department of
Professional Standards to
review all pursuits.
"I think it'll be a model
policy for the country. We're
already'ahead ofaYlot of agen-
cies who still pursue for traf-
fic, stolen cars and that sort of
thing," he said.

AIRCRAFT: Parts returned to Timco
Continued From Page 1A

Transportation Inspector
General's Office was brought
into the investigation and
assisted with the recovery of
the some of the equipment,
located in South Florida.
Parts returned to Timco on
Thursday- totaled more than
$250,000. Laxton believed
there are still parts missing.
Laxton said the police
believe the parts were going to
be shipped to South America
to be sold on the black market.
Additional arrests may be
forthcoming as the case is still
under investigation by the
police department and
Department of
Transportation. Federal
charges may also be filed in
addition to the state charges.

Investigators from the Lake City Police Department return stolen
parts to Timco Vice President and General Manager Mark Snook
(second from right). The investigators are (from left) Sgt. Jason
Byrd, Sgt. Clint VanBennekom and John Stock.

Campbell said in the past
providing the snow for free
but making parents pay for the
rides created some conflicts.
"Some parents may not be
able to afford that," Campbell
said of the rides.
Children ages 12 and
younger are invited to play in

the snow.
"This year, we also have a
special area for children 5 and
under," Campbell said, adding
the separate areas will ensure
small children don't get
trampled by the older children.
Campbell said more than
3,000 people usually show up
for Snow Day and he thinks
this year will be no exception.

"We've had a lot of calls out
of Jacksonville this morning
with people wanting to come
up," Campbell said Friday.
Lake City resident Christy
Marie plans to bring her 2-year-
old daughter to the the event.
"She has seen snow before,
but it has been about a year,"
Marie said. "I think she'll
really enjoy it."

secular Shiites and Kurds,
al-Dulaimi said.
However, al-Dulaimi's pre-
diction that the Shiites would
be unable to form a govern-
ment is by no means a certain-
ty. Shiites account for about
60 percent of the country's
27 million people, and turnout
in the Shiite heartland of
southern and central Iraq was
reported high.
Under the newly ratified
constitution, the party with
the biggest number of seats
gets first crack at trying to
form a government than can
win parliament's eLndorse-
ment. That is likely to be the
coalition of Shiite religious
parties that dominate the
outgoing government.
Still, a government with
strong Sunni Arab representa-
tion could help defuse the
Sunni-dominated insurgency
and allow the United States and
its coalition partners to begin
removing troops next year.
On Friday, Gen. George W.
Casey Jr., the top U.S. com-
mander, told Pentagon
reporters in a video telecon-



U.S. Army soldiers remove cement road blocks, used for security
measures during Iraq's parliamentary elections, in Baqouba, Iraq,

ference that he will make
recommendations in the next
few weeks about troop
withdrawals from Iraq.
But Casey sought to dampen
expectation that a successful
election alone would end the
insurgency and predicted
insurgents may escalate their
attacks to demonstrate they
"are still strong and a factor to
be reckoned with."

'We should not expect the
insurgency to just go away
because of yesterday's great
success," Casey said. "But we
should expect it to be gradually
weakened and reduced as
more and more Iraqis adopt the
political process and the root
causes of the insurgency are

House moves to tighten

immigration law at border

Associated Press
House struggled Friday over
the best way to slow illegal
immigration in legislation
seen as a prelude to a tougher
debate next year over what to
do with the 11 million undoc-
umented people already in
the country.
The House legislation,
billed as a border protection,
anti-terrorism and illegal

immigration control act,
includes such measures as
enlisting military and local
'law enforcement help in stop-
ping illegal entrants and
requiring employers to verify
the legal status of their work-
ers. It authorizes the building
of a fence along parts of the
U.S.-Mexico border.
But Republican leaders
wouldn't allow a vote on a
volatile proposal to deny citi-
zenship to babies born in this
country to illegal immigrants.

And they put off considera-
tion of a guest worker pro-
gram, which President Bush
and many lawmakers say
must be part of a lasting solu-
tion to the illegal immigrant
The issue next moves to
the Senate, where Majority
Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn.,
says he will bring up immi-
gration legislation in
February that will provide a

Justice Department officials
said no existing wiretap would
have to be turned off. But they
said expiration of the law
would create confusion about

whether information gleaned
after Jan. 1 could be shared,
even if it stemmed from an
ongoing investigation.
Much of the controversy
involved powers granted to
law enforcement agencies to
gain access to a wealth of per-
sonal data, including library
and medical records, in
secret, as part of investiga--
tions into suspected terrorist
The bill also includes a four-
year extension of the govern-
ment's ability to conduct rov-
ing wiretaps - which may
involve multiple phones -
and continues the authority to
wiretap "lone wolf' terrorists
who may operate on their
own, without control from a
foreign agent or power.

Yet another provision,
which applies to all criminal
cases,, gives the government
30 days to provide notice that
it has carried out a search war-
rant. Current law requires the
government to disclose
search warrants in a
reasonable period of time.
During debate, several
Democrats pointed to a New
York Times report that Bush
had secretly authorized the
National Security Agency to
eavesdrop on individuals
inside the United States with-
out first securing permission
from the courts.
'Today's revelation makes
it crystal clear that we have to
be very careful, very careful,"

By Donna Surgenor Reames

T A were dirt poor that Christmas that I was fourteen. Two
weeks before Christmas Mama and I stopped in at a
V Christian bookstore, just to look. It was hard enough to
come up with enough money to feed all of us-we knew walking in
the door with its jingly bell dancing along the hinge, we knew that
we couldn't buy anything.
As Mama browsed, I stopped short at a small stack of Bibles. One
in particular that caught my eye was a small black King James
Version in simple leather with edges gilded in gold. Along with it
was a tiny matching New Testament.
"They're a set," the sales clerk told me, noting my interest. She
walked over to me and picked the bigger Bible up, running her
palm gently over its smooth surface. "And they're on sale. Just for
today." My heart caught in my throat. I wondered if maybe we had
enough money, just this once.
My mother looked over at me from the card rack and smiled the
saddest smile. It was a familiar one, the one we saw every time we
wanted something other kids had, something we couldn't have. I
smiled back and walked over to my mother. The sales clerk fol-
lowed me. "It's only $14.99 for the set," she said, looking at my
mother. Mama shook her head. "I'm sorry," she murmured, "We
can't do it today."
As we got ready to leave, Mama walked over to the table. She
touched the little New Testament with one finger, a lost look in her
blue eyes. As we walked out of the store, I joined arms with her. My
mother was my best friend. I hated when she hurt. I hated being
poor, not so much because of things we couldn't have, but because
it hurt to see Mama cry.
The weeks passed quickly and before we knew it, Christmas Eve

was here. I helped
my parents wrap
the pitifully sm.ill *
pile of presents loi V' ** "
my little sisters. Lvn, �ii ..
Sandy, and Shern .. . . .."
Mama tried hard to "
make it cheerful in i.ur i
small apartment Dad 1 ,,
silent, withdraw. n r.i hi . :
most all the time since los-
ing his job at the steel mill.
Still, I thought it was a good Christmas. We had enough to eat, and
Mama was such a good cook, we enjoyed every bite. After supper
the girls opened their gifts, and I opened mine-a brown woolen
scarf and matching mittens, a thick lined pad for the stories I was
constantly making up, and a new blue pen. Mama got out the Bible
and read the Christmas story to us. My baby sister ran over to sit in
Dad's lap, and he actually cracked a small smile for the first time
that night. I stood up to go to my room, suddenly overcome with a
feeling of helplessness over our situation.
Mama looked up at me from where she was sitting on the couch,
a little sister on each side. "Where are you going, honey?" she asked
softly, concern darkening the blue eyes I so
loved. I tried hard to fake it. I smiled. "Just need something from
my room, Mama" I said. "I'll be right back."
Mama moved Sandy and Sherry off of her and put out a hand
toward me. "Wait, honey," she said, "Let me go with you."
As we made our way to my room, she stopped in front of her

bedroom door. "Come in here, Donna,"' she said, pulling my arm to
get me to follow her.
"Sweetheart," she said softly, smoothing my hair out of my wet
eyes, "I don't have the answers to all your questions. I don't know
why we don't have money right now. But one thing I do know: God
has never forgotten us. He loves us, Donna, and that is one thing
you can always count on."
I leaned back against her, drained, and then she pushed me away.
I saw a look of excitement dancing in her eyes as she pulled out the
top narrow drawer of her old mahogany dresser, the one she had
when she was a little girl. Taking out a small package, she handed it
to me. "You had one more present, Donna,"' she said, shining in her
eyes a smile on her lips, straight into my heart. I looked down,
shocked. Surprises didn't come often in our home. I slowly opened
the cheap wrapping paper, wondering what on earth my present
could be, thinking maybe it was a package of socks or underwear.
As the paper fell'onto the floor, I had to reach out to hold the dress-
er to keep from falling. There in my hands was the black leather
Bible set I'd admired in the bookstore two weeks before. And there
was more: my name in rich gold swirling letters etched on the Bible,
my initials printed on the New Testament.
I looked at my mother and in that moment knew a faith I have
never lost. I held that Bible, knowing it must have cost her all her
grocery money. Surely, my mother was right about God. He did love
us; He hadn't forgotten. It was all there, in those two black Bibles I
held in my hand.
Feeling rich in that moment, I started to believe in miracles that
night and have never quit believing in them ever since. Life's come,
a long way since that Christmas thirty years ago, but I've never
had a present that meant more or brought me greater, truer joy-
all because of one mother's simple, strong faith and her sacrificial
love for her child.

annual tax of $1.

ON DEC. 24, 1 8 5 1 , a devastating fire at the
Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., destroys

lection contains more than 17 million books.

ON DEC. 1 9, 1 9 1 5 , internationally renowned
French singer Edith Piaf is born. At age 20, Piaf sup-
ported herself with street singing and prostitution
until a nightclub owner discovered her, dubbing her
"la mome piaf" ("the waif sparrow").

ON DEC. 2 1, 1 9 3 7, actress Jane Fonda is born.
The daughter of actor Henry Fonda, she was nominat-
ed for an Oscar for "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?"
(1969), and won the Best Actress award in 1978 for
"Coming Home."

ON DEC. 2 3, 1 9 4 4, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower
endorses the finding of a court-martial in the case of

War II.

ON DEC. 22, 1964, comedian Lenny Bruce is

Book was an

But when God gave him an
idea for a story, he had to tell it.
"God gave me this book,"
Johnson said of his newly

The Lake City resident
finished writing a 225-page
story Friday called "Man in the
Pulpit." Since 2001, Johnson
has been writing about
12 hours a day in the Learning
Resource Center at Lake City
Community College.
His fictional story tells the
tale of two friends dealing with
life and race relations during
the Civil War era.
"It's a learning tool as far as
I'm concerned," Johnson said.
"I would like my book to be a
must-read in schools."
Johnson currently is
sending his work to publishers
and he hopes to write another
story soon. He said the best
part about writing was being
around the students at the col-
"I like being around people
who are productive," he said.

Officials at Southland
Christian Church said they
received protests from
hundreds of Christians across
the nation when word of the
closed-on-Christmas decision
was reported in the media.
In a sermon interrupted by
applause and one standing
ovation, Weese said: "I was
deeply saddened by the
knee-jerk response of the
Christian community as a
whole to give the benefit of the
doubt to the media and not a
church or a Christian brother."
"I'm still troubled that more
Christians did not stand up for
us," he said, and "illogical,
ill-informed and even
hypocritical arguments" had
been aimed at him.
Weese said that in Jewish
and biblical tradition, Sunday
begins at sundown Saturday
and his church is holding
Christmas Eve services. He
said Jesus, too, was criticized
for breaking tradition and faced
critics who "emphasized
religion over relationship."

The Salvation Army: A distinctive corps

simultaneously expands and shrinks

AP Religion Writer

Renowned for
Christmastime bell-ringers
with red kettles, thrift shops,
skid row missions and effi-
cient canteens that served
4.8 million meals after
Hurricane Katrina, the
Salvation Army enjoys a kind
of respect accorded few
American charities.
Yet the Army is not a

Protestant denomination that
sponsors a massive and
expanding philanthropic
empire even as its
membership declines.
Last year, the organization
spent $2.6 billion and aided
34.5 million people through
every imaginable form of
social service; about
11 percent of its income came
from the government. In the
future, the Army's impact will
be enhanced by 30 or more

government money has pro-
voked protests from civil lib-
ertarians and gay activists, it
apparently hasn't undercut
public support. Last
December's kettle proceeds
set a record and contributions
to Katrina relief, the Army's
biggest disaster effort ever,
were triple those after the
Sept. 11 attacks.
Its 62,000 employees and
3.5 million volunteers are led
by a mere 3,684 "officers" (the

equivalent of clergy) whose
ranks have declined nearly a
third the past five years.
"Cadets" enrolled at the four
U.S. officer training schools
are down 18 percent since,
1997, to 284, and membership
is also sliding.
National Commander W.
Todd Bassett of Alexandria,
Va., said in a telephone inter-
view that the Army has been
hit with a cultural undertow
that has hurt participation in

other churches and that officer
careers require an unusual
degree of "dedicated devo-
tion." That includes financial
sacrifice. For example, 42-year
veteran Bassett and his wife,
,Carol, (all officers' spouses
must also be officers) together
receive a $33,000 stipend plus
housing, expenses and
"'m a man of faith so I know
we can turn it around," Bassett
said, 'peaking about the drop
in officers. "Our recruiting in
the past has been within our
own ra3.k. We're reaching
beyond that" to present the
vision of Army service to more
non-Salvatioiist youths.

century England with founder
William Booth's mission to
help the downtrodden. Its doc-
trines, defined ir. a 144-page
handbook, are orthodox

tism and communion are never
In many ways a product of
its time, the Army is saturated
with Victorian traditions: brass
bands, distinctive men's and
women's uniforms, street
meetings and numerous
military metaphors.
Today, the Army is a closely
knit international organization
based in London with 1.4 nmil-
lion followers in 109 countries.

largest national contingent,
now celebrating its 125th
anniversary, but . today's

The 113,500 U.S. "soldiers,"
the core group among 427,000
members, have taken covenant
vows, once known as the
"Articles of War." They cover
doctrine, loyalty to leaders,
generosity, willingness to evan-
gelize and help the needy, and
clean living (no alcohol,
tobacco, drugs, gambling,
pornography or profanity).

Williams retrial to

A breach-of-contract lawsuit
contending that tennis

reneged on promises to
play in a -
"Battle .of

next year; .attorneys in the
case said Friday.,
A mistrial was declared
earlier this we k after more
than two weeks of
testimony when an attorney
.representing Richard
Williams, the stars' father,
asked one of the promoters
who brought the lawsuit
whether someone had given
her money in return for a
share of any damages won.
Palm Beach County
Circuit Judge Jeffrey A.
Winikoff had previously
warned lawyers not to
bring up that subject
because it might prejudice
the jury. He also imposed a
$1,000 fine on the attorney
who asked the question,
but that fine was withdrawn
"Obviously, I'm delighted
that the judge vacated the
order against me," said
attorney Jan Michael
Morris of Boca Raton.
A new trial will not be
held until at least
November 2006 in defer-
ence to Venus and Serena
Williams' tennis season.
Promoters Carol Clarke
and Keith Rhodes claim in
the lawsuit that Richard
Williams committed his
daughters to play in the
proposed match against
male stars. The sisters
testified that they alone had
that authority and Richard
Williams said he never
considered his agreement
to be a formal contract.

Columbia girls top Fort White

Jernigan scores 23 to lead
Lady Tigers to a 64-27
home victory on Friday.


.Fort White High found out how
hard it is to play up a couple of classes
in basketball, especially with a:
Columbia High team stuck in a tough
district and looking to break out. .

The Lady Tigers beat the Lady
Indians, 64-27, at home on Friday.
After dropping four straight games,
it was the third win in a row for CHS,
which improved to 6-4 overall and is
1-4 in District 4-5A play. Columbia
plays a district game at Vanguard High
at 4 p.m. today.
Fort White took an early 3-2 lead,
but it was all CHS after that in the first
quarter as the Lady Tigers led 16-4 at
the break.
. 'Clar'donrna Jernigan scored 12 of
her game-high 23 points in the second

quarter and Columbia built the lead to
36-12'at the half.
"It helps you get better," Jernigan
said of the blow-out game. 'To get
around them holding you, you have to
get your shot off quicker. You have to
play defense."
The senior added seven rebounds
and six steals to her point total.
"Clara was the difference-maker in
the post tonight," CHS head coach
C.C. Wilson said. "She dominated
inside and got offensive rebounds and

8-0 this season.
The Columbia High boys
basketball team played its
rivalry game against Fort
White High like a desperate
teani, rather than a group that
.has run off to an 8-0 start.
The Tigers scored the
game's first nine points and
were never threatened on the
way to a 75-36 victory on
Friday night. Columbia dove
for loose balls, deflected
errant Indians passes and
attacked the glass like a team
that was starving for a win.
"I felt like we were
focused," CHS ppint. guard
Kenny Williams said. "When
you play out there, you don't
really have friends."
Williams tied with Cameron
Reynolds for the team lead
with 15 points,'as the Tigers
had every player except one
on the roster score a point.
"I thought the effort was
outstanding," Tigers coach
Trey Hosford said. "But it's
been that way all year. The
guys, I have so much fun
coaching them, because
they're going to give me a
great effort."
The Tigers' defense was
able to control Fort White's
best offensive player Antwan
Ruise, who led all players with
16 points but got many of
those when the game was
already decided.
"I really challenged them to
not get any silly reach-in fouls,
to get deflections," Hosford
said. "I think that's one thing

Jakeem Hill also wowed the
crowd with three dunks in the
game, and Williams banked in
a three-pointer at the third
quarter buzzer to give
Columbia a 62-32 lead going
into the fourth.
Reynolds was a revelation
for the Tigers, finding his shot
with three three-pointers and
opening up the floor for other
Tigers. Reynolds was starting
for his injured brother,

"Last couple of games and
in practice too, he's starting to
find that range - and when

ARIES (March 21-April
19): You may feel pressured,
but you can't give in or let the
little things people say or do
bother you. You are in the dri-
ver's seat, and it is up to you to
remain there. Prepare to make
this an enjoyable day alone.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Get together with old
friends. You will be surprised
how much has happened.
Someone from your past will
still make your heart beat fast.
Socializing will make you
realize how hard you've been
working. ****-
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Travel plans should be in
the making, even if it is only a
short distance. Someone older
whom you respect and love will
need your help. There will be a
lot left unsaid in a partnership
you are currently involved in.

CANCER (June 21-July
22): Romance looks favorable,

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.

Invisible son wants a shot

in father's photo gallery

DEAR ABBY: I grew up
invisible in a household with
three siblings, one of whom
got by far the most attention.
To this day, my older
brother's picture is displayed
in our parents' family room -
only his.
Two of my siblings were
manic-depressive. There was
never much calm, but that
was no one's fault. My biggest
complaint is that Dad ran out
on us, taking work in another
town. Although he had the
option to stay, he left Mom'
and me to cope with the
remaining brother who
suffered from that horrible
disease. It was hell.
I am still angry at my father,
even though he is old and frail
and doesn't have much time
left. My wife says I need to sit
down with him, explain why I
am angry, clear the air, and
also ask him to hang pictures
of all of his children. I say,
some wounds are better left
scabbed, if not healed. I feel
that the absence of photo-
graphs speaks of an attitude
that cannot be changed. What
do you think? - FORGOT-
SON: I think I agree with
your wife. Although you may
not be able to change your
father's attitude (or priori-
ties), it might be beneficial for
you to give him a chance to
explain why he left - one

Abigail Van Buren
adult to another. And as to
why only one sibling's picture
is displayed, it could have less
to do with the amount of affec-
tion as much as the level of
preoccupation. Please talk to
your father before it's too late.
It could lighten your load.
DEAR ABBY: I come from
a family where there was alco-
hol abuse on the part of both
of my parents. No one in the
family is an admitted alco-
holic, but sometimes the
problem can be quite obvious.
When I drink to excess, I
have trouble controlling my
emotions. Whatever I'm feel-
ing becomes amplified, so I
am quick to be very jubilant,
sad or even angry. This lack
of control has caused me a lot
of trouble - especially with
my current girlfriend. She
says she can't handle when I
drink because I always
become verbally abusive to
Abby, how can I tell if I am
an alcoholic? I don't have trou-
ble controlling the amount or
frequency of when I drink, but
I do get "mood swings" when
I'm intoxicated. Is that a

classic sign? - WORRIED
Alcoholism can run in fami-
lies, and because both of your
parents have problems with
alcohol, you could be at
greater risk than the average
Among the questions you
must ask yourself are: Have
you had problems connected
with drinking during the past
year? Has your drinking
caused a problem with your
relationships? Do you have
blackouts (can't remember
what happened when you
were drunk)? Have you ever
embarrassed yourself or
someone else when drinking?
According to your letter,
the answer to all of these
questions is yes. This indi-
cates that although you may
not be an alcoholic, you could
be in danger of BECOMING�
Please consider contacting
Alcoholics Anonymous. The
organization is listed in your
phone directory. The folks
there will provide you with lit-
erature and information about
alcoholism, and invite you to
visit one of their many sup-
port groups. Please take them
up on it. It could be the learn-
.ing experience you need to
head off a serious problem
before it happens. Good luck!

Ted Yoho (RGainesville) introduced H.R. 3784 to the House of Representatives, a bill which, if signed into law, would repeal the Affordable Care Act if enroll ment does not reach seven million by March 31, according to a news release sent Thursday. The Obama Administration likes to claim that this healthcare law is hugely popular and is wanted by the American people. I disagree, Yoho said in a prepared state ment. If the administra tion cant even make their own target numbers then the American taxpayer should not be further burdened by this terrible law. The bill will be known as the Nullifying the Unconstitutional Mandate by Evaluating Results (NUMBER) Act. To date, the House of Representatives has voted, and failed, 46 YOHO SEEKS REVERSAL OF ACA Yoho Long stay at shelter may end for pets By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Bones, medium-sized beige dog.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the federal lawsuit against the Lake County Schools on Thursday. Lake County is northwest of Orlando. Earlier this year, the ACLU sued the district after officials refused to approve a gay-straight alli-ance club at Carver Middle School. A short time later, the school board agreed to a settlement allowing the club to form. But the board passed new rules for school clubs and required all existing clubs to reapply in order to meet. The application for a gay-straight club at Carver Middle School was rejected. A district spokesman says they haven’t seen the lawsuit.Autistic boy gets to keep chickens DEBARY — A 3-yearold autistic boy will get to keep his backyard chick-ens thanks to a decision by the DeBary City Council. The council voted unanimously on Wednesday to grant an exemption to the family of J.J. Hart that allows the child to keep his chickens. Earlier in December the coun-cil voted to end a pilot program that allowed residents to keep chickens with a permit. The boy’s family says he’s made significant prog-ress since they got the chickens, which were rec-ommended by a physician as a form of therapy. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the family’s lawyer had threat-ened a lawsuit if the child wasn’t allowed to keep the chickens. City Attorney Kurt Ardaman says the exemp-tion isn’t automatic for anyone with disabilities. Future requests will have to be approved.History textbook under fire OCALA — Some conservative activists in the Ocala area say a state-approved textbook for 10th graders slights Christianity and Judaism while being favor-ably biased toward Islam. The Ocala Star-Banner reports that Randy Osborne, chairman of the local Republican Party, told the board recently that the book’s 36 pages about Islam were actu-ally a “propagation” of the world’s second biggest religious faith. A spokeswoman for the publisher counters that the book meets state stan-dards in accordance with Florida’s adopted history curriculum, which directs that Christianity and Judaism be explored more fully in earlier grades. The critics of “World History” demanded at the School Board’s meeting in late November that the book be pulled from area schools. A workshop with the district’s textbook selec-tion committee has been scheduled for Jan. 30.Editor’s note: The following announcements usually run on the Faith & Values page.

And yet they seem more substantial, more real. Because this time, they are ren-dered in color. Fred looks stylish in light-brown tweed. Ethel is resplendent in a purple Christmas dress. The furni-ture and carpeting in the Ricardos’ apartment is not gray and grayer but blue and subtly mauve. And Lucy — well, Lucy is her usual ball of chaos, with one key difference: Her red hair, implied over and over during the show’s 1951-57 run, is inevitably, assertively, undeniably, out-of-a-bottle red. With the “I Love Lucy Christmas Special” (8 p.m. ET Friday), CBS ventures into the world of color-izing two vintage episodes of an Eisenhower-era TV show that, perhaps more than any other from that period, sent a message down through the years of what life in the 1950s (or, at least, the sitcom ver-sion) might have looked like. The episodes, CBS says, “were colorized with a vintage look, a nod to the 1950s period in which the shows were filmed.”Seneca Falls, NY claims link to ‘Wonderful Life’ SENECA FALLS — Is this where George Bailey lived his wonderful life? Folks in this quaint upstate New York town think so. Or more precisely, they say Bailey’s make-believe hometown of Bedford Falls in “It’s a Wonderful Life” — including the main street and the steel truss bridge — was heavily inspired by Seneca Falls. This cannot be proven, and director Frank Capra never confirmed such a connection. But that hasn’t stopped locals from celebrating the beloved movie every December, complete with actors dressed as Clarence the Angel and mean old Mr. Potter parading down a main street gussied up to look like Bedford Falls. “Capra always said Bedford Falls represented little slices of small towns that he had visited all across America. We’re not in a position to dispute that,” said Francis Caraccilo, a trustee for the Seneca Falls It’s a Wonderful Life Museum. “We just think we’re a bigger slice.” Capra’s 1946 film stars Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, a small-town, frustrated banker who realizes his life’s value after Clarence shows him what would become of Bedford Falls if George had never been born. The homey town falls into the clutches of the greedy slumlord Potter, and his Pottersville becomes a city of sin, brimming with sleazy nightclubs, burlesque halls, pawn shops and neon lights. If Bedford Falls (the nice one, not the naughty one) really was mod-eled after Seneca Falls, Capra never let on, and died in 1991. But many in this town of 9,000 say they have a strong circumstantial case. Seneca Falls has a nice broad main street like Bedford Falls’, and there’s a bridge with a plaque dedi-cated to a man who jumped from the span to save a suicidal woman in 1917 — an act echoed in the film.

December 25 11am 2:30pm The city itself will have no obligation, ownership or any other legal or fiscal con nection to the bonds issued by Capital Trust. Under [the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982 and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986], you have to have a hearing and an approval of the issuing body to move forward, according to Capital Trusts Executive Director Ed Gray III. This does not at all circumvent what must take place. The citys resolution of approval, passed unani mously during a council meeting Monday night, does not constitute endorsement, zoning approval, evaluation or opinion. Its just something theyre required to do by law, Gray said. The $35 million is part of an overall $165 million bond issue under consid eration from Capital Trust to Rimrock Devlin finance construction of additional senior living facilities out side of Columbia County. Rimrock Devlin said the facility will open in late 2015. dogs that have been here for over a year. To me, its so sad that these dogs have been here this long, especially Bones. This will be his second Christmas. The event lasts from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. today and Saturday. The 10 dogs and four cats that have been there the longest will have reduced prices. For the dogs, the normal adoption fee of $120 has been reduced to $50. For the four cats, interested adopters will pay only $40. For the last week, a vol unteer dog trainer, Lorraine Moore, has worked with the 10 dogs to ensure that they have good manners, behave on a leash and get along with other dogs and cats. Over the week, Moore uncovered the areas where each dog struggles and where they excel. Were looking for long-term commitment, Dunlap said. A lot of these dogs have been here so long. ... But every dog is a good dog. To help new owners jump the hurdle of pet adoption, the humane society will be providing two free obedience les sons. Dunlap said they hope to help make the relationship a good one. While the adoption event will feature other dogs and cats, the goal is to adopt out the 10 dogs and four cats that truly need a forever home. Teena Ruffo, operations manager of the Humane Society, asks that people not adopt dogs or cats with the intention of gift ing them for Christmas, unless the person receiv ing the pet knows. In addition to Bones, the event will feature Pollo, Gerald, Moon, Jingles, Darla, Terry, Butch, Loretta and Joey. For cats, it will feature Midnight, Destiny, Leo and Merry. Bones is the only dog in the group to have been at the shelter since 2012. The others have been admit ted into the shelter during 2013, but some as far back as March. We just hope a lot of people show up, Ruffo said. A lot of people will be out shopping, but we dont know how many will think, Lets go buy a dog. But maybe they will. Maybe they will think to save a dogs life instead of buying something that doesnt mean anything. The Humane Society warns new pet owners and current pet owners to be careful during the holiday season since a major cause of emer gency room visits for pets is ingestion of food and other substances. Poultry bones can splinter and get stuck in a pets mouth, obstruct its throat or puncture its intestines. Keep chocolate far away from dogs, as one ounce can be fatal to a dog under 10 pounds. Holly berries and mistletoe are extremely dangerous to pets. Decorations and gifts can become a choking hazard for dogs of all sizes. times to repeal the ACA, also known as Obamacare. However, this would be the first repeal attempt linked to a hard enrollment quota. According to Yohos chief of staff Omar Raschid, seven million was not an arbitrary number chosen by the con gressmen or his allies. Were holding the [Obama] administration to numbers they themselves set, Raschid said. They said the target goal is seven million enrollees. The bill as written would repeal [the ACA] completely if we dont see that by March 31. However, the Congressional Budget Office was the original fed eral entity that estimated a seven million person enroll ment by 2014, and did not take into account an Internet rollout delayed for months by bugs and programming errors when they issued their report in May. Once the CBO released those numbers, members from both sides of the aisle began latching on to the seven million figure as a benchmark of sustainability for Obamas signature leg islation. Katherine Sebelius, direc tor of the ACAs exchange rollout, also said success looks like at least seven mil lion during an interview with NBC news on Oct. 1, the original launch date of However, policy ana lysts noted that the ACAs viability is not contingent upon raw enrollment num bers, but rather the ratio of young, healthy individu als (young invincibles) to older, sicker citizens who enroll in the exchange. Yohos bill currently has 19 cosponsorsall Republicanincluding Rep. Bill Posey (R-Rockledge). Yoho himself is also a cosponsor of H.R. 2300 and H.R. 3121, two alternative proposals to the ACA, the release said. This commonsense bill simply holds the Administration accountable to those numbers, Yoho said. And if they are not met the Affordable Care Act is fully repealed. BONDS Continued From 1A BILL Continued From 1A HUMANE Continued From 1A Engineer of escape plan was SCI inmate By MARGIE MENZEL The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Thursday announced the arrests of six current and former prison inmates in a con tinuing investigation into two escapes using forged documents last fall. The six face a combined 37 charges of conspiracy, escape, forgery and har boring an escaped prison er. Those charged include Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins, who were serving life sentences for murder from Orange County and now face additional charg es. The two men escaped from Franklin Correctional Institution using bogus court paperwork indicat ing their sentences had been reduced: Jenkins on Sept. 27 and Walker on Oct. 8. They were captured in Panama City Beach on Oct. 19. Authorities know of five other attempted escapes using the same method, including two that were underway when the fraud was discovered. One of the prior attempts was by Jenkins. The attempts occurred at the Franklin Correctional and Gulf Correctional institutions and the Pinellas County Jail. FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey said the very complex investiga tion will continue. These arrests represent significant progress in this case, and we definitely have a more clear understand ing of the fraud, Bailey said. But its important that you understand this is still an active investigation. We still have numerous leads and evidence to filter through. Bailey described Nydeed Nashaddai, 48, as the engi neer of the scheme and the first to use it before passing his knowledge on to his fellow inmates. Nashaddai is at Suwannee Correctional Institution and faces an additional four counts in connection with Walker and Jenkins escapes. Also arrested: Willie Slater Jr., 36, who faces nine counts for his outside role, which includ ed ensuring that the forged documents arrived at the Orange County Clerk of Courts office. Terrance Goodman, 37, who drove Jenkins and Walker to Panama City and rented them a motel room. He faces one count of harboring a fugitive and two counts of conspiracy to commit escape. Jeffrey Forbes, 30, an inmate at Florida State Prison, who faces four counts including escape, conspiracy and forgery. The forged documents used by Walker and Jenkins were created at Franklin Correctional Institution and included the seal of the Orange County clerk of courts office and sig natures of circuit officials, including Ninth Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. and Orange County State Attorney Jeffrey Ashton. Bailey said so far, the investigation hasnt point ed to anyone in author ity in the criminal justice system being a part of the scheme. We have no indication ... that anyone in the prison system or at the clerks office was involved with this fraud, he said. But Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews said authorities are still exam ining the role of the access that inmates had to com puters and printers in the prison. Were looking at what we legally have to provide, he said. The state expects to begin using a secure e-sys tem in February 2014 to transmit court orders so as to close the door on similar attempts in the future. Woman faces larceny charge By AMANDA WILLIAMSON A Lake City woman faces a charge of larceny after she allegedly stole prescription medication from her father and attempted to sneak more of the pills in the presence of sheriffs deputies, according to an arrest report. Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrested Marsha Merie Spicer, 25, of 298 Scarlett Way, on Wednesday at approximate ly 1:33 p.m. When deputies responded to SE Lomond Avenue in response to a fight, deputy Charles Vaughan was approached by Spicers father, David Spicer. According to David Spicer, his daughter took his prescribed medication, Percocet. As Vaughan was talking to David Spicer, Marsha Spicer walked up to the scene in tears. She refused to say where she had been when Vaughan asked, the report said. Marsha Spicer stated she did not take all of the Percocet after Vaughan told her that her father said she had stolen his medication, the report said. She said she had only taken two pills, the report continued. According to the police, Marsha Spicer appeared to be high and could barely stand to talk. Vaughan continued to talk with David Spicer. When he glanced over at Marsha Spicer, sitting in a chair next to her fathers medicine bag, she had her hand inside the bag in attempt to steal more medication, the report read.

City Clerk Spicer look at giving a bonus until we can get the salary sur vey done and implement ed. However, commission ers and staff discussed the next steps in the pro cess toward implement ing those raises now that a comprehensive salary study is in the works. Commissioners also approved as part of their consent agenda a $23,700 salary survey conducted by Cody & Associates, Inc. We have received a draft of that survey and it was received by me on Wednesday, Dale Williams said, adding that he had barely gleaned any of the information in the survey since then. Commissioner Bucky Nash voiced his disapproval of having to pay a third party to conduct the survey. If youre going to have managers, they should have enough gray matter to be able to go through and pick out the ones that are overpaid and under paid and fix it among our selves and save the taxpay ers $23,000, he said. Nash reasoned since the last pay raises, the county has granted bonuses aver aging about $1,000 a year to its employees. If you look at what weve done, weve trained the employees to expect a $1000 bonus at Christmas, Nash said. Ill ask them do you want $1,000 bonus for Christmas or do you want a raise? Ron Williams also noted employees year-end bonuses will actually total $2,000, if the waived fam ily health insurance pre miums are included in the equation. Due to 2011 state leg islation regarding the granting of bonuses, the $1,650 check is good for all employees that worked during the 2012-13 fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2012-Sept. 30, 2013). Part time employees or those hired after Oct. 1 would receive bonuses pro-rated to reflect their tenure. Employees hired after Oct. 1 of this year are not eligible for the bonus. Once the commission ers voted unanimously to pass the measure, Clerk of Courts DeWitt Cason shuffled out of the audito rium to begin the neces sary paperwork. BONUSES Continued From 1A

Y es, it was fun playing when we were kids. But sometimes during those long days in grade school class, I remember feeling restless, or sometimes bored. I’d gaze out the window or fall back on daydreams. Recess and lunch were often a welcome relief. Playing games or sports could be fun, or playing on the swings or slide, or sometimes just hanging around with friends. The free and unstructured activity was fun, and felt good. But, there’s another side to the freedom. Freedom and lack of structure can come with its own costs. Sometimes I wandered around, looking for something to do, or someone to do it with. It wasn’t always easy to find activi-ties or friends to join with. It could at times be lonely or frustrating. Sometimes teachers monitored the playground or field, but kids could “fall between the cracks,” or have difficulty finding or choosing an activity, or finding someone to play with. What’s the answer? Has anyone come up with good solutions or ideas? Sometimes the best answers can come from the children them-selves! I caught a story on network news recently: Christian Bucks, an elementary school student, had spent some time in a school in Germany. When he returned to the States, he attended a school new and unfamiliar to him in York, Pennsylvania. He felt left out, confused, and a little shy about join-ing with a group or joining in with games or sports. He remembered an idea he had seen in the school he attended in Germany: The school there had provided a bench on the play-ground, with a sign painted on it: “Buddy Bench.” The idea was for you to sit on the bench if you want-ed something to do, or someone to do it with. Surely there would be others who also wanted to find companionship, or activities to join. It worked well as a “connecting and coordinating station.” Christian told his teacher about the idea. Thankfully, she was receptive and interested in the idea, and brought it to the attention of other teachers and the administration. The idea was used, and has spread, as an easy way for many schools to help with this need for connecting kids for socializing, playing, and sports. What a great idea! My own family moved across the country a few times, and it would definitely have helped me to adjust and make new connections, and to find activities I’d have enjoyed. I’m sure there are lots of kids that would have been so much better off if they could have had that help. Who knows; maybe there would be less frustrated youth who may feel left out. Do you think it might save us from even one school shooting incident? What you can do? Can you imagine the same principle being help-ful to folks of all ages? How about a “golf buddy bench,” a “bowling team bench,” an “I’ll dance with you bench,” a “club bench,” or a “look-ing for a lab partner bench?” What kind of a bench would help connect you to new activities or friends? I’m sure there are others who would want to join with you. Think about it? Peace on Earth, good will to man . but on the highway, not so much. A study by David Brown, a University of Alabama professor who studies holiday traffic (perhaps if you’re studying the traffic, it means you’re not stuck in it), found that the six days around Christmas showed 18 percent more accidents than Thanksgiving week-end, the heaviest travel days of the year, and 27 percent more than New Year’s Eve when drivers are perhaps handicapped by an excess of holiday cheer. Claims for collisions increase by almost 20 percent during December, accord-ing to the Highway Loss Data Institute, which indicates that’s probably on the low side because many minor fender benders happen in mall parking lots and are settled privately. The problem is that probably you and certainly your fellow drivers are stressed out and short-tempered by the extra traf-fic, including people who aren’t really sure where they’re going, and the neces-sity to pick up a lot of stuff in scattered locations. Holidays, it is no secret, are stressful. State Farm Insurance found that 32 percent of drivers were likely to become more aggressive during the holidays. Brown says that this year the worst, and most hazardous traffic, will fall on the Friday before Christmas, although the next four days leading up to Christmas are likely to be no safe-driving clinic either. The safest day to drive? Christmas Day itself. “Nobody’s out there on the roads,” Brown said. “It’s a very safe day to drive.” It’s also a good day to rest up, relax and unwind because that weekend there will be all the gift returns and post-Christmas sales. A s far as I know, President Barack Obama never said that if you like your life insur-ance options, you can keep them. He may therefore get off the hook as a deceiver if the Dodd-Frank regulatory law does what is now plotted, though he will still share responsibility for the insurance provision that along with others could bloody lots of noses. A conglomeration of marketplace interventions lovingly promoted by the president, Dodd-Frank is now barreling our way. It’s true that dif-ferent agencies had been too busy bumping into each other, consulting with affected parties and wrestling with complicated passages to get all the rules written. But Obama called the regulators in to tell them, by golly, to start regulating. And so, befuddled or not, the regulators are coming. The idea behind the law – officially known as the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act – is to make sure we never have another financial crisis of the kind we had in 2008. It was supposed to address the issue of too big to fail, does so questionably with lopsided prohibitions and is ultra-filled with a jumble of bureaucratically empow-ering irrelevancies and potentially damaging, obscure guesstimates. This collaboration of the intellectually presumptuous and the ideologically driven is finally too big to succeed. Not the least of it is an unnecessary and in fact inexcusable addendum concerning life insurance companies. It lumps them with insti-tutions regarded as posing threats to the financial system if something goes terribly awry. A not infinitesimal issue is that they do no such thing. If companies failed in insurance pursuits, many people would suf-fer, but the financial system would not be affected in a major way. It is additionally observed that states have done a reputable job oversee-ing them and that the companies themselves have done a remark-able job of sound, alert manage-ment. Intervene foolishly, and, as Iain Murray of the Competitive Enterprise Institute has written with reference to a study, purchasers could some day have fewer choices in policies that could also cost more and return less. Members of both parties in Congress are wise to this stupidity and just maybe, conceivably, will do some little something about it, though that would be a meager start to what is really needed. What’s hugely important to a decent American future are bold, enlightened souls who will further reshape Dodd-Frank and, beyond that, reduce the rest of our egre-gious regulatory excess. Right now the mishmash exceeds an astound-ing 134,000 pages of federal rules that are more than a little punish-ing, as an underpublicized study underlines. Two economists (John Dawson and John Seater) estimated that federal regulations promulgated over the past 60 years may have made Americans close to one-fourth as well-off as we would be with-out them. If, then, you want some rough notion of what a more liber-ated economy might possibly have done for you, multiply your current income by four. But wait. Weren’t many of those regulations really, truly needed? Yes, of course. But many weren’t and are constitutional affronts. As a Wall Street Journal series showed, a vast number have even led to criminal charges against people who could not possibly have known they were violating any stricture, a practice aspiring to despotism. Look, too, at how nothing is too tiny to generate colossal govern-mental consternation. Right now, the Federal Trade Commission is going after a 137-year-old, nonprofit music association for suggesting to its members – mostly piano teach-ers – that they shouldn’t try to recruit students from each other. A Journal columnist, Kim Strassel, notes that the group has had to turn over thousands of documents, sign a silliness-ridden consent decree and submit to a burdensome, costly 20-year antitrust compliance pro-gram. And for what? Proffering an admonishment. It’s craziness that won’t affect most of us the way new life insur-ance rules might and Obamacare has recently been doing by stick-ing consumers with higher health insurance deductibles. But it does help describe the current reign of in-your-face governmental bullying.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER COMMUNITY FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20 & 21, 2013 5A5Adirector. “The food has been donated compliments of all of the churches in the area, as well as individuals who have donated funds to help us purchase food and the Kiwanis Club of Lake City who have also donated many baskets towards the total.” Daly said approximately 260 families will be receiv-ing the baskets for feeding around 600 people. The Christmas basket giveaway began Thursday morning around 8:30 p.m. and went to 5 p.m. Approximately 25 Christian Service Center of Columbia County volunteers helped pack and organize or carry the food to the clients’ vehicles as they pulled into the facility’s warehouse parking lot. The Christmas baskets contained turkey, eggs, bread, yogurt, stuffing, vegetables and a variety of other items that are normally cooked for a tradi-tional Christmas meal. Baskets were also slated to be given to clients today who were unable to pick up their baskets Thursday. Law enforcement officers were on site to make sure there were no traffic issues. “The city does not like us to back traffic up out onto a thoroughfare, so it helps us to keep the traffic moving appropriately and it makes sure nobody gets hurt,” Daly said. She said the operation went “smooth as glass” and everyone had a good time participating. “We prayed with each individual that comes through,” Daly said, noting local pastors that support CSC were on hand to pray with clients as they leave the premises. Russell Taylor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church pastor, prayed with several of the clients and helped volunteers throughout the day. “I talked to Kay and felt like this ministry has a great deal of integrity and has a heart to fulfill our calling as Christians and minister to those people that are in genuine need and this is the best place I know to do that,” he said. “We wanted to be involved in it for that reason and it’s been a blessing to be able to watch the way people respond and watch what God is doing through this ministry.” The Christian Service Center is scheduled to be closed the week of Christmas and Daly said they decided to give the baskets the week before. The Christian Service Center and its Lighthouse Gift Shop is slated to re-open Jan. 2. GIVEAWAYContinued From 1AOver 21,000 shoeboxes lled By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comT oothbrushes, soap, school supplies and toys were packed neatly into shoe-box-sized containers throughout the year to be shipped this December to more than 100 different countries for Operation Christmas Child — a program designed to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with children around the world. The North Central Florida area donated 21,000 shoeboxes for this year’s holiday season, and their boxes are already on their way across the world. Shipped out of Atlanta, the presents will find their way to Belize, Botswana, Columbia, Gabon, Haiti, Ghana, Madagascar, South Africa, Trinidad, Ukraine and more. “It’s a great way of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ — one child at a time,” said Jo-Ann Pettigrew, the local collection center coordinator. “The kids in the foreign countries we send to — over 130 — can not go to school if they don’t have school supplies. So we try to include pencils, paper, erasers and more.” According to Pettigrew, the 21,000 boxes totals 2,000 more boxes than they sent out last year. She said it’s been an awesome year, despite the economy. The local collection area covers 10 counties, including Baker, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Suwannee and Taylor. Throughout the year, churches, volunteer organizations and chari-ties collect supplies to be includ-ed in the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. The program allows school supplies, hygiene items and toys. People are not allowed to send damaged or used items, war-related items, food, medications or breakable items. Started more than 20 years ago by Franklin Graham, Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samatrian’s Purse. It has provid-ed more than 103 million shoebox gifts since its inception. When the shoeboxes reach their destina-tion, pamphlets are also given to children by the program to teach about the Scriptures. In Lake City, Jo-Ann Pettigrew and her husband Bob Pettigrew, who also works as a local collec-tion center coordinator, attend the Orchard Community Church. Every month, they attempt to col-lect donations of a different item to be included in the annual boxes. For example, one month they may collect soap and washcloths, then the next month collect small toys. “The stuff that goes into these shoeboxes, if we offered it to kids in the United States, they’d laugh at us,” Bob Pettigrew said. “But to the kids these boxes go to, they’ve never had anything.” Jo-Ann Pettigrew remembers a story told by the Suwannee Valley Area Coordinator Colleen Ruehl about a boy in Peru who opened his box and pulled out the soap. He smelled the bar, Jo-Ann Pettigrew said, and then told the volunteers it was the nicest thing he had ever smelled. According to Bob Pettigrew, Florida and Puerto Rico collected approximately 500,000 boxes this year. The children and volunteers get the boxes to their destina-tions any way they can — some boxes get parachuted in, some arrive by boat, others by camel, donkey or cart. “We appreciate all the folks that have helped here,” Bob Pettigrew said, adding that any church that wants to participate next year should just call him for information. To reach Bob and Jo-Ann Pettigrew, contact them at 386-935-1958.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, December 20 & 21, 2013 6A 6AF&V W e visited a church last week to hear their Christmas program. I noticed they had a large cross over their baptistry and at the foot of the cross a baby lying in a crib looking up at the cross. What a great idea. The Lord Jesus came as a little baby in a manger; looking toward the cross. Paul told young Timothy in 1 Timothy 1:15, “This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.” We who are Christian should praise God everyday for this act of love toward us. We are today in what many refer to as the “age of deception.” Many are so caught up in the things of the season that they forget Jesus’ real reason for coming to earth. They forget that He could return for His church at any time. The Bible speaks of at least five crowns the Christian can win. One is the watchers crown. In 2 Timothy 4:8 we read, “Finally there is laid up for me the crown of righteous-ness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” Those who are watching for the Lord’s return are thinking about the things we ought to be thinking about. The great deceiver loves this time of year when so many forget about “The Blessed Hope.” That is what the coming again of our Lord Jesus for His church is called. More than 320 verses in the New Testament alone refer to this event — “The Blessed Hope.” Almost every book deals with it to some degree, but chapter 24 of Matthew is among the most complete on the subject. Matthew 24 was not written to the unbeliever, but to the believer. Verse four says “Take heed that no one deceive you.” I believe you could safely say no one or nothing. Many are deceived this season of the year. The great deceiver is very hard at work taking people’s mind off Christ. Many don’t even think about the babe in the man-ger. Being careful not to be deceived seems to be first on the list of concerns and signs of the coming again of our Lord. The same warn-ing is recorded in Mark 13:5-6 and Luke 21:8. The last days of deception will be characterized by the multiplication of false doctrine and decep-tive cults. How significant is this warning in the light of the amazing increase of new sects and cults and isms. No matter how fanatical or satanic these are, people still fol-low them. It is said that there are over 350 differ-ent sects, cults, denomi-nations, and groups in American today. All claim to be right. The question is: Where can the truth be found? The answer is this: The Word of God is the only truth concerning this. The moment we accept a tradition of man or some new movement or new discovery, we are led astray. Anything added or taken away from God’s Word (2nd Timothy 2:15) is wrong and leads to deception. We therefore confidently believe that the signs of the time as record-ed in God’s Word indicate the soon return of the Lord for His own. His own will be those as recorded in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His own begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Trust Him today. The holiday season is a season of deception Hugh Q Hugh Sherrill is an ordained minister presently serving at Philippi Baptist Church. BIBLE STUDIES I n several of his letters, Paul encourages the members of various churches to whom he has written to be of “one mind.” How can a group of people from assorted back-grounds and nationalities be of “one mind?” Quite often it is a very difficult task to get a group of people together to accom-plish a certain function. When this group is of a religious nature, sometimes it seems almost impossible to get them to all agree, to be of one mind. Look at our world and all the different religious practices. We need to consider and think that it is possible for us to be of “one mind.” The apostle Paul would not have told us to be of “one mind” if it were impossible to do, therefore it is possible. We simply need to change our thinking. Paul expects us to be of “one mind.” It is possible. As we meditate upon how we can be of “one mind,” let us first think about what it means, and second, how we can put it into practice in our local congregations. When we are of “one mind” we are in unity. We have the same mission. We have the same purpose, the same goals. Everyone is going in the same direc-tion. We might say that we have “joined hands” to make this program work. One of the mandatory things which we must do if we are going to be of “one mind” is to forget our “own mind.” Replacing our “own mind” with the “one mind” of the group, we put our-selves in the background and move the group to the forefront. We must be “group oriented.” We must be seeking the desires of the leader of the group. In the case of a local church, it is the desires of Jesus since He is the Head of the group. There must be a willingness to cooperate with the other members of the group. Each individual member must be looking at themselves and saying, “How can I be part of this group?” “What contribu-tions can I make to this group?” “How can I be a team player?” When differences of opinion arise as to how something must be accom-plished, and they will, we must think of what is best for the group. We must not think of our own prefer-ences but what is the pref-erence of the leader of the group, namely Jesus. What is His opinion as to how things must be done? What are His desires and wishes? Religiously, congregations need to be of “one mind.” They need to be working together to accom-plish the things which Jesus wants them to accom-plish. They need to be on the same page as to how they can fulfill the mission that Jesus gave to the local congregation. They need to be working together, and not as disjointed individuals working their own agendas. A small band of Christians, working with “one mind” can accom-plish great feats! In fact, they probably can accom-plish more than congre-gations twice their size solely because they are of “one mind.” By the same principle, if all the various religious groups were of “one mind,” what could be accomplished for the cause of Christ?

Jernigan was named a second-team member of the All-American team on Tuesday. Jernigan Jr. stood out from early age PAUL BUCHANAN /Lake City ReporterTimmy Jernigan Jr. looks across the field in a game ea rlier this year. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comBy now the national audience knows the name Timmy Jernigan Jr. He’s one of many stars of the Florida State Seminoles, which will play Auburn for a national title. But Jernigan Jr.’s name has been known in Lake City for a long time. Even before being named to the Associated Press All-American team, those around him knew he was going to be a star. County Commissioner Ron Williams coached Jernigan Jr. for one year during his youth years and knew right away that he was going to develop into a monster on the field. “Believe it or not, all the credit goes to his daddy,” Williams said. “He worked with him all the way up. I knew that he should have a Hercules. I knew his daddy would have him ready to be a stud. He was dedicated to have him ready men-tally and physically. He’s just a Hercules, so big and muscular.” Columbia County Recreation Director Mario Coppock also knew of Jernigan Jr.’s potential from an early age. “He was involved with the youth early on,” Coppock said. “He just grew big-ger and faster. By the time he was in middle school, we all knew. I remember watching and people would doubleand triple-team him to no avail. What I liked the most about him is that he enjoyed playing the game.” Although current Columbia High head coach JERNIGAN continued on 3B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida linebaker Michael Taylor tackles Georgia’s Brendan Douglas during a game at EverBank Field in Jacksonville on Nov. 22.Florida/Michigan agree to meet in Cowboys ClassicAssociated PressFlorida and Michigan will open the 2017 season in the Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas. The prime-time game is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 2. It will be Florida’s first regular-season, non-con-ference game outside the Sunshine State since the Gators lost at Syracuse in 1991. “You don’t get these opportunities very often,” Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said. “Our schedule has been pretty consistent through the years. We were presented this oppor-tunity and just thought it was something that our fans would embrace, our program would embrace. It would give us great national visibility. Obviously, a very difficult ball game against a storied program — that excites us.” Gators to open 2017 season with Wolverines. GATORS continued on 3B

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRID AY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20 & 21, 2013 3B3BSPORTS JERNIGAN: A star on every level Continued From Page 1B GOLF REPORTS GATORS: To meet Michigan in 2017 Continued From Page 1BFor the second week in a row, Sunday’s blitz was all about ties. Bob Wheary rolled in a birdie on No. 16 to take a spot at the top with David Rhodes and Dave Mehl. All three shot +5. Steve Thomas was in solo fourth with +4 on the strength of three birdies. Closest to the pin winners were Bruce Ford on No. 5, Bruce Gibson on No. 7, Josh Boris on No. 15 and Thomas on No. 17. Thomas collected two skins, leaving one each for Mike Jacobs, Mehl, Rhodes and Wheary. Bruce Gibson and Eddy Brown broke out of a log-jam to tie for first place at +7 in Saturday’s blitz. Steve Thomas finished his round with four birdies but settled for a third-place tie with Keith Shaw, Don Combs and Scott Kishton at +6. Thomas made his money in the skins game with three. Jonathan Allen and Gibson each had one. Both flight winners in the Saturday blitz went to double digits to leave the rest of the field far behind. Buddy Slay took the A flight with +10, six points better than Ed Snow in second. Mike Gough was another point back in third. Charlie Timmons went Slay one point better to take the B flight with +11. A.J. Lavin was his closest pursuer at +5. Don Combs finished third with +3. Slay and Gough were the only winners who scored a skin. Joe Paul, Bud Johnson, Jordan Hale and Jerry Smith had the other keepers. Smith lost out on a pot hole prize by skipping the game. Two pot holes remain in play. Both Good Old Boys matches had clear winners. The team of Bobby Simmons, Jim McGriff, Howard Whitaker and Steve Peters had the easiest time, topping the foursome of Rhea Hart, Emerson Darst, Bill Rogers and Dennis Hendershot by 8-4.

Pictured during one award ceremony are LGA member Katrina Counts (from left), Catholic Charities Director Suzanne Edwards and LGA me mber Anita West.More ties for Christmas Saturday’s two-person best ball tournament was the perfect example of how golf is a game for every-one. The first flight net winners with a 61 was the father and daughter team of Brooke Russell and Phillip Russell. First flight gross honors with a 69 went to Corey Depratter and Jason Self. Second Flight gross winners with a 71 were a pair of 13-year-old junior golf-ers, Tiara Carter and Matt Soucinek. Net honors went to the team of Luther Huffman and Al Greene with a 61. Third flight proved to be a super-tight finish with the father/son team of Jeff and Nick Tyre winning gross honors in a match of cards with an 83. Al Cohoon and Tim Tortorice took the match of cards over Gerald Smithy and Jack Tuggle to prevail for the net win with a 63. The optional skin game provided several winners: Q First Flight — Bob Feasel, Todd Carter, Kevin Odom, Depratter and Self; Q Second Flight — Soucinek, Huffman and Tiara Carter (2); Q Third Flight — Wallace Christie (2), Jeff Tyre (2), Gerald Smithy, Jack Tuggle and Ken Kellam. Everyone had a great time, only having to endure a brief drizzle at the begin-ning of the round. Mother Nature provided a window to complete the tourna-ment before the afternoon rain set in. The Ladies Golf Association would like to thank all the partici-pants who brought a toy for the annual donation the Christmas Dream Machine. Wednesday Blitz results: first-Luther Huffman +7; second (tie)-Keith Denmark, Billy Jones and Tim Tortorice. Skin winners were Jim Munns (2) and Tortorice.

QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Nicki Newmans Diverse field for best ball Masters adds 14 from world rankingAssociated PressAugusta National added 14 players to the field for the Masters when the final world ranking of the year was published this week. That brings the field to 90 players who are expected to compete April 10-13, and again rais-es the possibility of the Masters exceeding 100 players for the first time in nearly 50 years. Augusta National has the smallest field of the four majors and prefers to keep it under 100 to enhance the overall experience at its tournament. This is the third time in the last four years that the field was at least 90 players going into a new calendar year. There were 99 players for the 2011 Masters, the most since 103 players competed in 1966. Those who qualified by being in the top 50 of the final ranking were Hideki Matsuyama, Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Francesco Molinari, Rickie Fowler, Matteo Manassero, David Lynn, Thongchai Jaidee, Peter Hanson, Joost Luiten and Branden Grace. Fowler was the only American of the 14. PAUL BUCHANAN /Lake City ReporterTimmy Jernigan Jr. takes on two offensive linemen from B ethune-Cookman University during a game for the Seminoles last season.PAUL BUCHANAN /Lake City ReporterTimmy Jernigan Jr. looks for the ball in a game for the Seminoles this season. Brian Allen didn’t have the chance to coach Jernigan Jr. while he was a Tiger, he did have contact with him before he signed with the Seminoles. “When I first got back here and he was a senior, he did weightlifting with us,” Allen said. “I see how much he’s grown as a man. From the time he was in eighth grade, I knew that he was going to be a domi-nant player from seeing him work at the Showtime Camp at Florida State. I was able to see his ability when he was going against seniors.” And of course, all of those that know him are proud of the man Jernigan Jr. is becoming. “He’s maturing both on and off the field,” Allen said. “We definitely have had a relationship devel-op. It’s impressive to see how much he’s grown as a man and he gets that from everyone from the top down. It’s a pleasure to have another kid go on and represent the school well. Every time he makes a tackle, you get to see the Columbia on the screen. He’s holding the rope for the program.” Coppock believes Jernigan Jr. being select-ed as an All-American is something that everyone in the county should cel-ebrate together. “It’s an award for the community and something we can share in with him as a hometown product,” Coppock said. “He’s fol-lowing in the footsteps of his father and certainly living up to him. He had big shoes to fill, but he’s doing a great job of filling them.” The Jernigans did not return calls seeking comment. Michigan will be the away team, Florida the home team. Game offi-cials and replay crew will come from the Big 12 Conference. Each school will receive 25,000 tickets for the neutral-site game at AT&T Stadium, home to the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. The $1.2 billion stadium opened in 2009. It already hosted the Super Bowl and is scheduled for the 2014 NCAA men’s Final Four and the first college foot-ball national championship under the new playoff for-mat in January 2015. Michigan played in 2012 Cowboys Classic, losing 41-14 to Alabama. “We are excited to make a return trip to Dallas for the Cowboys Classic against Florida,” Michigan coach Brady Hoke said. “This is a great way to reach our fan base in the south and to con-tinue to expand our recruit-ing efforts in the state of Texas. Our goal is to have as many Michigan fans at the game as possible.” This will be the third meeting between Michigan and Florida. Both previous matchups came in bowl games. Michigan won both: a 38-30 victory in the 2003 Outback Bowl and a 41-35 victory in the 2008 Capital One Bowl. Florida has struggled to fill stands for home games the last few years, espe-cially in games against non-conference opponents aside from Florida State. So moving a home date to a neutral-site venue — and guaranteeing a sellout and a significant payout — made sense financially. “This is a great opportunity to expose the University of Florida nationally, playing one of the greatest programs in the history of college foot-ball,” Foley said. “I think a tremendous trip for our fans. We just haven’t done much of this, certainly as long as I’ve been athletic director. I think there are a lot of positives that come out of it.”


4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20-21, 2013 DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my wife for a year and a half, and we have an infant child. I work while my wife stays home. My problem is she doesn’t like me play-ing sports and hanging out with friends. I have tried to make concessions and cut down playing sports to once a week. (I used to play two or three times a week, but that’s not good enough for my wife.) On game night, when I get home she gives me the silent treatment. She used to come to my games but won’t now, even though she has girl-friends who attend them. As for hanging out with my friends, I barely see them anymore — and when I do, they come here. If they stay any longer than 30 min-utes, it causes a problem and my wife again won’t talk to me for the rest of the night. I have tried to compromise, but she feels as though any time I spend away from her and the baby is a no-no. Am I wrong to want to play sports and see my guy friends? I have tried talking to her about this, but she thinks any compromise is basically me doing what I want and her having to deal with it. — ONTARIO, CANADA, READER DEAR READER: You should not become a couch potato or become isolated from your friends because you are married and a parent. And neither should your wife. She may resent the time you spend with your friends because she’s stuck at home taking care of the baby. You are her only adult company, and in a way she may be jealous that you’re enjoying freedom that she can’t. Your wife should not be doing all the parent-ing. One day or evening a week YOU should take care of the baby while SHE takes a break with her friends or family. It could do wonders for your relationship. If you can agree on this, it could save your mar-riage. If you can’t, then the two of you should get counseling. Marriage isn’t supposed to put people in isolation -and that’s what it appears your wife is trying to accomplish with you.Holiday plans to be made together DEAR ABBY: For the past 10 years, the holiday season has brought with it arguments between my wife and me. We both get along with our in-laws and do many things with both sides of our families. But for some reason, my wife makes arrangements for the holidays without discussing them with me first. This year, she told her mom we would host Thanksgiving and that I would have to tell my family we wouldn’t be coming to them. My wife’s sisters are not close to their in-laws. Am I wrong to think she should have discussed the matter with me before deciding unilaterally what we’re doing for the holidays? Our kids need to see ALL their grand-parents on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh — our parents live only seven minutes from each other. — HOLIDAY BLUES IN WISCONSIN DEAR HOLIDAY BLUES: What your wife did was inconsiderate. You are a couple, and she should have discussed her plan with you before issuing any invitations to see if you were in agree-ment. If your home is too small to accommodate both sets of in-laws at the same time, a compromise would be to alternate holidays with each set so no family feels excluded.Smartphone keeps sisters from talking DEAR ABBY: My younger sister “Lainie” is 14. She has had a smart-phone for about a year. While I don’t belong to any social media sites, Lainie is a social media junkie. She never goes anywhere without her phone. Sometimes she’ll have her phone in one hand and her tablet in the other, taking turns when one or the other begins to bore her. It’s almost impossible to interact with her because her face is buried in the virtual world just about every hour of the day and night. I miss the way things used to be before she got that smartphone. I have talked about this with my parents. While they are equally concerned about Lainie’s withdrawn, some-times secretive behavior, they never do anything about it. What are your thoughts on this topic? — GADGET GIRL’S SISTER IN NEW MEXICO DEAR SISTER: It’s common for teens to spend a lot of time on their phones and com-puters. But when they become withdrawn and secretive, it is time for a parental intervention. If your folks are equally con-cerned about your sister’s behavior, they should step in, find out what’s going on and do something about it, if necessary. If they don’t already, they could start by schedul-ing family dinners during which cellphones are turned off or put away. Wedding guest questions attire DEAR ABBY: Is it acceptable to wear a sil-ver dress to a wedding if you are going as a guest and not a member of the bridal party? Or is silver too close to white and therefore taboo? — INVITEE IN COLLEGE PARK, MD. DEAR INVITEE: The rule is that wedding guests should not wear anything that might dis-tract attention from the bride. If your dress is silver lame or covered in silver sequins, it would be better to dress less conspicuously. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): A change of attitude will give you the confidence you need to make things happen in your life. Explore new people, places and pastimes and you will discover something or someone you really enjoy. A little effort will go a long way. +++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Do your best to make improvements to your domestic situa-tion. Accommodate the people you love and compromise to keep things running smoothly in your personal life. What you do now will make a difference in the future regarding impor-tant relationships. ++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Re-evaluate how you make money or what your strategy is to improve your earning potential. The solutions you settle on should be using your strongest talents and skills to the utmost. Consider pick-ing up additional knowl-edge. Self-improvement will pay off. ++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Get motivated and moving. Don’t let the last-minute changes that someone else makes ruin your plans or your day. Picking up unusual items at a good price will ease the stress that has been building due to family dynamics. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll be feisty and ready to take on whatever comes your way. Plan your day accordingly and use your energy wisely. Shopping or engaging in other activi-ties will require physical endurance. Playful social interaction will round out your day. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Take care of your responsibilities. Don’t leave room for crit-icism. Focus on what you can do to help others, as well as making what-ever personal changes you want to implement before the year comes to a close. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make arrangements to travel or plans that include what you are doing dur-ing the upcoming fes-tivities. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about the choices you make. You have to be true to yourself first and fore-most. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Emotions will flow and sharing feelings with someone you care for will let you know exactly where you stand and what to expect in the future. Romantic plans will help improve a relationship that means the world to you. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Present, promote and make your-self heard. Money mat-ters can be taken care of and changes to the way or where you spend your time look favor-able. Don’t let love cost you; it’s what you do, not what you give, that counts. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Ask questions and stay on top of a situation that con-cerns you emotionally. A couple of changes may be required in order to please someone you love. Be careful while travel-ing or dealing with sticky situations. Listen to con-cerns carefully. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Offer what you can and fol-low through with your promises. Consider the changes you want to make regarding your career and your friend-ships. Re-evaluate what’s transpired and use past experience to come up with a solution and a way to move forward. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): It’s playtime. Have fun with friends, family or your lover. Expand your inter-ests by trying some-thing new. Get in the spirit of the season and pick up items that will boost your confidence or please someone you love. +++ Happy Birthday: There is money to be made, but budgets must be kept. Your easy come, easy go attitude will need adjusting if you want to prosper. Dedication and detail will have to be a priority if you want to impress anyone influential in your life. Be a leader, not a follower, and you will set a new standard and gain respect. Your numbers are 6, 10, 17, 27, 36, 38, 47.
