As Christmas approaches, the
roads in Columbia County and across
the U.S. will be busier, possibly lead-
ing to a surge in traffic crashes and
fatalities.
In Florida alone, more than three
million people are projected to drive
the Florida roadways, according to
AAA.
Reports from AAA state that one of

the main causes of holiday wrecks is
alcohol, many coming after parties
where alcohol is served.
"Unfortunately, some view cele-
brating as overindulging in alcoholic
beverages, then getting into their
cars and driving home," Sojeila
Orengo, manager of traffic safety pro-
grams at AAA Auto Club South, said
in a statement.
According to the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA), someone dies in an alcohol-
related crash every 30 minutes.

The Columbia County Community Traffic
Safety Team is joining local restaurants and
bars in Lake City to keep .alcohol-related
wrecks down by supporting designated
drivers.
The "Celebrate Safely, Designate a Driver"
campaign kicks off today in Columbia
County.
This community effort is designed to stop
impaired drivers across the state, as well as
raise awareness of the many holiday deaths
and injuries caused by impaired driving
during the holiday season.
"Several restaurants have agreed to pro-
vide non-alcoholic beverages free of charge
from December 23 to January 1 to patrons
who identify themselves as the designated
driver for their companions," said Capt. Gary
Laxton, chairman of the Columbia County

Adopt-a-Highway,
downtown murals
being considered.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comrn
The start of 2006 could see
some new additions to Lake
City, including median adoption
markers and wall murals in the
downtown area.
The median adoption mark-
ers would allow local business-
es to adopt certain parts of
roadways and maintaining the
upkeep and landscaping of the
medians.
"This is at the top of my list of
projects for the new year," said
Harvey Campbell, Executive
Director of the Columbia
Count, Tuurism Development
Council. .
The first road that mill likely
be chosen for the initial wave of
median markers will be U.S. 90,


from Branford Highway to just
east of Interstate 75.
"Eventually we would like to
expand the program, but the
initial stage is to put five mark-
ers out there to make a memo-
rable impression on our
visitors," Campbell said.
Campbell said the first plan is
to form a list of businesses in
the area that would be
interested in the program.
"We're very optimistic that
sponsors will sign up fairly
quickly;" Campbell said. "We
hope to implement this
program by the end of March."
In addition to the median
adoption markers on U.S. 90,
the downtown area is also a
likely candidate for the coun-
cil's plan to beautify Lake City.
"I was recently in a city in
south Florida called Lake
Placid, and the city is renowned
for its murals," Campbell said.

Christmastime


Volunteers pitch in

By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter.com
Despite being distanced
from loved ones, soldiers serv-
ing overseas and veterans at
the domiciliary home and at
the VA Medical Center this
year are finding ways to have a
Merry Christmas.
Some soldiers will be home
for the holidays, but many mili-
tary members will spend
Christmas halfway around the
world. More than 1,200 mem-
bers of the Florida Army
National Guard will spend
Christmas in Afghanistan,
while another 300 of them are


stationed in Iraq. But even
though they're far away, sol-
diers are making the best of
their situations - some of
them even hang lights and
Christmas decorations on their
tents so they feel more like
home. Many soldiers will take
some time Sunday to relax.
'They have a little time to
settle down and enjoy the holi-
days," said Lt. Col. Ron Tittle,
public affairs officer for the
Florida Army and Air National
Guard. 'Typically, they will
have a nice Christmas lunch.
They also do something for the
local populace."
Some soldiers probably will
dress up as Santa Claus and

Chip Carter gets
death in slaying
JACKSONVILLE - A
Jacksonville man convicted in
the 2002 killings of his former
girlfriend, her new boyfriend
and her daughter was
sentenced to death Thursday.
Chip Carter was found
guilty in September of three
counts of first-degree murder.
Circuit Judge Lance M. Day
on Thursday sentenced Carter
to death for killing Liz Reed,
35, and Glenn Pafford, 49, and
to life in prison without parole
for killing Reed's 16-year-old
daughter Courtney Smith.
"I was responsible for these
deaths physically, but I was
not responsible mentally for
them," Carter told the judge
when he entered the
courtroom, The Florida
Times-Union reported.
Day called the killings "cold,
calculated and premeditated
murder."
Carter admitted during his
trial that he went to the
Arlington home of his
ex-girlfriend, Reed, shortly
after midnight on July 23,
2002, and killed her, her new
boyfriend Pafford, and her
teenage daughter.
Public Defender Bill White


had argued that the shootings
occurred in the heat of
passion, perpetrated by a
distraught and jealous Carter.
But prosecutors said Carter
planned the slaying, possibly
for as long as three weeks
when he started secretly
driving by Reed's house to
check on her.
After the shootings, Carter
fled to Mexico, where he was
briefly detained a month after
the shootings. Carter
eventually returned to the
United States and was
arrested last year in Kentucky
after a state trooper noticed
his picture on a wanted poster
in a local jail.

Son of Colts' coach

sheriff's office said.

Carter said.
"Based on evidence at the
scene, indications are that this
death appears to be a suicide,"
Carter said. "There is no
evidence to contradict that at
this time."
However, Carter said, an
autopsy will be performed to
determine the official cause
and manner of death. She
released no additional details
about what deputies found at
the scene.
When Dungy's girlfriend
found him, he wasn't
breathing, Carter said. A
sheriff's deputy performed
CPR before an ambulance
rushed him to University
Community Hospital, she said.
He was pronounced dead
there.
Tony Dungy has left the
Colts and is in Tampa, where
he coached the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers from 1996 to 2001.
The Colts (13-1) are at Seattle
on Saturday, and team
president Bill Polian said that
assistant head coach Jim
Caldwell has taken over for
Dungy.

Telemundo signs to

MIAMI - Telemundo has

The Miami-based company
joins powerhouse Univision,
the nation's most popular
Spanish-language network,
which on Monday also agreed
to be ranked by Nielsen
against ABC, NBC, CBS and
other national networks.
"From now on, as marketers
target their audiences, they
will have a vehicle that will
transparently evaluate
audience delivery in Spanish
side-by-side with English
language networks," said
Telemundo President Don
Browne.

Police say inmate had tools,


outside help in brazen escape


By CURT ANDERSON
Associated Press
MIAMI - An accused seri-
al rapist who brazenly
escaped from jail using bed-
sheets for a rope also had
sawlike tools that may have
been smuggled in by one or
more accomplices, police said
Thursday.
'"This is a conspiracy. This
was hatched over about three
months," said Miami Police
Chief John Timoney in a tele-
phone interview with The
Associated Press.
The accused rapist, 34-year-
old Reynaldo E. Rapalo, and
another inmate used tools to
escape Tuesday night that
were apparently brought into
Turner Guilford Knight
Correctional Center by an
accomplice or accomplices,
Timoney said.
Charles McRay, director of
the Miami-Dade Corrections
Department, placed two
corrections officers on
paid administrative leave
Thursday as part of the
escape investigation.
McRay answered
"absolutely not" when asked
in a telephone interview if
there were allegations that


the two officers were
involved in the escape, and
said they have not been disci-
plined for any wrongdoing.
McRay also ordered all vents
at the Knight jail welded shut
and that lighting be
improved.
"We're .taking steps to
make sure nothing like this
happens again," McRay said.
Rapalo and the other
inmate, 38-year-old Idanio
Bravo, climbed through a
vent in the ceiling of Bravo's
cell after someone pried off
the vent's locked door. Bars
that blocked the vent's open-
ing onto the jail's roof were
also cut, apparently by some
type of saw, investigators said.
"He used certain tools you
can't purchase from the
prison commissary," Timoney
said. He declined to elaborate.
There are also indications
that Rapalo had arranged for
someone to meet him after
his escape, Timoney said.
Joanne Duncan, a detective
with the Miami-Dade Police
Department, said there were
no reports of stolen cars, car-
jackings or robberies in the
vicinity of the escape.
Rapalo was considered
armed and dangerous,


possibly carrying a small-cal-
iber handgun, according to
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement. He was
also dressed in black when he
escaped, according to a wit-
ness who saw him drop to the
ground using the tied-up
bedsheets, and left his jail
uniform behind.
Rapalo was arrested in
September 2003 for a series of
alleged sexual assaults on
women and girls aged 11 to
79 ;in the Shenandoah and
Little Havana neighborhoods
of Miami. Rapalo, who faced
trial early next year, was
linked to the assaults by DNA
evidence.
A multiagency task force
was working Thursday to find
Rapalo, whom investigators
believe is still in the South
Florida area. Miami-Dade
police Capt. Greg Dohring,
commander of the task force,
said authorities had received
more than 70 tips and had
three rapid-response squads
working to check them out.
'"We feel we have a very
good chance of apprehending
him and getting him back in
prison," Dohring said.
Rewards totaling
$16,000 were offered for

Rapalo's arrest, including
$10,000 offered by the FBI.
U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement agents
were also involved in the
manhunt for Rapalo, who is
originally from Honduras.

escaped, Bravo, broke his
legs in the attempt and was
apprehended.


Parents get probation for child neglect


Associated Press
MIAMI - The parents of a
6-month-old baby who died
after being fed an unorthodox
raw food diet were given sus-
pended sentences and proba-
tion Thursday for child
neglect convictions involving
their other four children.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge
Stanford Blake also ordered
Joseph and Lamoy
Andressohn to adhere to a
host of conditions if another
judge approves reunification
of their family, including regu-
lar visits to a pediatrician and
a nutritionist, a parenting
course and a prohibition
against home schooling.
"I don't care about your
diet, but the (recommended)

followed," Blake said.
The judge imposed
five-year suspended sen-
tences on both parents, to be
followed by 15 years each of
probation. He also lifted a
"no-contact" order that had
prevented the Andressohns
from seeing their children for
more than two years. .
"If it comes to my attention
that something has happened,
that you've done something
that is not in the best interests
of your children, you will go
to prison for five years," Blake
told the Andressohns.
They could have been
sentenced to as much as
20 years in prison, but Blake
approved a defense lawyers'
motion for a downward depar-
ture from sentencing

guidelines over the objections
of prosecutors. The chief
prosecutor on the case,
Herbert Walker III, said he
was "disappointed" in the
sentence and will appeal
Blake's downward departure
ruling.
The jury that convicted the
Andressohns of child neglect
acquitted them of manslaugh-
ter in the May 2003 death of
6-month-old Woyah, who was
fed only wheat grass, coconut
water and almond milk. The
Andressohns believe in a diet
of raw, uncooked foods.
Woyah weighed only
7 pounds when she died and
the other four Andressohn
children also were under-
weight, prosecutors said.
They have been living with a


relative since the infant's
death.
Joseph Andressohn called
the judge's sentence "a mirac-
ulous outcome" and that he
looked forward to reunifica-
tion of his family. The
Andressohns also have an
infant baby girl who was born
after Woyah's death.
"We love our children dear-
ly and we want to see them as
quickly as possible," he said.
Defense attorneys and
- expert witnesses-contended
that Woyah's death may have
been caused by a iare disease
called DiGeorge syndrome, in
which a person is missing the
thymus gland necessary to
produce a healthy immune
system.

The history

of Hanukkah

H anukkah is celebrated for
eight days and nights,
starting on the 25th of
Kislev on the Hebrew
calendar (which is
November-December on the Gregorian
calendar). This year, it begins at
sundown on Sunday. In Hebrew, the
word "Hanukkah" means "dedication."
The holiday commemorates the
rededication of the holy Temple in
Jerusalem after the Jews' 165 B.C.E.
victory over the Hellenist Syrians.
Antiochus, the Greek King of Syria,
outlawed Jewish rituals and ordered the
Jews to worship Greek gods.
In 168 B.C.E. the Jews' holy Temple
was seized and dedicated to the worship
of Zeus.
Some Jews were afraid of the Greek
soldiers and obeyed them, but most
were angry and decided to fight back.
The fighting began in Modiin, a
village not far from Jerusalem. A Greek
officer and soldiers assembled the
villagers, asking them to bow to an idol
and.eat the flesh of a pig, activities
forbidden to Jews. The officer asked
Mattathias, a Jewish High Priest, to
take part in the ceremony. He refused,
and another villager stepped forward
and offered to do it instead. Mattathias
became outraged, took out his sword
and killed the man, then killed the
officer. His five sons and the other
villagers then attacked and killed the
soldiers. Mattathias' family went into
hiding in the nearby mountains, where
many other Jews who wanted to fight
the Greeks joined them. They attacked
the Greek soldiers whenever possible.
About a year after the rebellion
started, Mattathias died. Before his
death, he put his son, Judah Maccabee,
in charge of the growing army. After
three years of fighting, the Jews
defeated the Greek army, despite
having fewer men and weapons.
Judah Maccabee and his soldiers
went to the holy Temple, and were sad-
dened that many things were missing
or broken, including the golden
menorah. They cleaned and repaired
the Temple, and when they were
finished, they decided to have a big
dedication ceremony.
For the celebration, the Maccabees
wanted to light the menorah. They
looked everywhere for oil, and found a
small flask that contained only enough
oil to light the menorah for one day.
Miraculously, the oil lasted for eight
days. This gave them enough time to
obtain new oil to keep the menorah lit.
Today Jews celebrate Hanukkah for
,eight days by lighting candles in a
menorah every night, thus
commemorating the eight-day miracle.
Happy Hanukkah.

COMMENTARY


Journalists, take a bow


WASHINGTON
It's not hard to find a
journalist to tell you how
horrible this year has
been for the profession
and the news biz.
The media, as we have come
to be called in modern times,
have lost ground longitudinally
and latitudinally. We have failed
not only to interest readers and
viewers in our products. We
have neglected our duties as
protector of the weak, and
watchdog on the powerful. Or
so some critics say.
The numbers aren't very
good either - anemic
circulation, bad demographics
on the evening news and so
on.
Oh, have a rum punch.
Those of us who have
written for newspapers for a
long time have grown cautious
about expressing our opinions.
We want to say we have seen
some of this before. This is a
cyclical business. And it can be
harsh in between great profits.
Not too long ago we were
shuttering evening newspapers
right and left. And before that
the Golden Era of multiple
metropolitan American
newspapers, broadsheets and
tabloids ended.
It's hard to talk about just
another dip in the cycle when
you watch your colleagues at
Knight-Ridder, including
some of this city's best
correspondents, waiting for the
news of a sell-off.
I also don't dare tell younger
colleagues anymore that what
they might be witnessing isn't
entirely new. They don't want
to hear about the old days,
pops. And they don't want to
hear about kids shouting
"Wuxtra, wuxtra" on the street
corner.
Nevertheless, I will
persevere in 2006. In my
opinion, journalists mainly did
their job pretty well in 2005,
except for Tuesday night.
That's when all the networks
went ape over the New York
transit strike, treating it as the
end of the world lead story on

LETTERS TO
Wishing you a
Merry Christmas
To the Editor:
I looked on several calendars
and every one and Christmas
Day written on Dec. 25. The
2006 calendar had the same.
The words announcing
Christmas Day has been on all
of our calendars since
calendars were introduced. In
addition, everybody has always
greeted each other with Merry
Christmas during the
Christmas season. So why are
we letting liberals dictate how
and what we say or don't say
about Christmas?
The liberals are trying to rid
America of God one step at a
time. The latest step
emphasizes not using the
phrase "Merry Christmas," in
the public square and business
establishments for fear of
offending someone. Offending
someone has nothing to do

the evening news, even though
the rest of the country was not
affected at all.
It was 10 minutes before any
of the networks got to any
news from elsewhere,
including the big story of the
day from Dover, Pa. on the
rejection of Intelligent Design
teachings.
Hopes that this Gotham-
centric approach might end
with the new wave of anchors,
led by ABC's shiny-faced
young team of Vargas and
Woodruff, were dashed when
they all treated the transit
story like a natural disaster.
Not a single life was
threatened. They do this
because the anchors are
located in New York,
because the networks are
headquartered there and
because they always have done
it this way. So much for
change.
It isn't networks, but
newspapers, that are ending
the year with a black eye.
The New York Times has
taken it on the chin both for
sitting on the government
wiretapping story for a year
and for breaking the story. The
whole thing might be
overblown. In comparison to
the Nixon administration
wiretapping story, the National
Security Agency wiretapping
scandal may turn out to be
more serious than malicious.
For one thing, the element of,
retribution against enemies
isn't there -at least not yet.
As for war coverage, the
media get raked about once an
hour by some television talking
head for failing to stop the
invasion of Iraq. But there


were plenty of doubts raised in
newspapers, magazines and
broadcasts about the validity of
U.S. intelligence that led to the
war.
The use of harsh
interrogation methods against
detainees was not raised in
Congress but by the media.
The Times had a scandal
and a shakeup, followed by yet
more trouble involving the CIA
leak investigation. The same
investigation spattered the
Washington Post's Bob
Woodward, who is not a bad
reporter.
But on balance, this wasn't a
year that calls for an apology
by these newspapers or by
American journalism. The
profession does not need
to convert to advocacy
journalism, which many
antiwar crusaders and others
with various causes are
demanding. And it is a lot
better than some of our own
practitioners think.
As for me, I don't have that
much to brag about. I - a
resident of Virginia, no less -
am still trying to live down a
column I wrote that seemed to
give the French more credit
for planting equality on
American soil than Thomas
Jefferson. Egads.
But I am one of the few
columnists who sounded the
alarm as far back as 2004 on
the harsh interrogation
techniques being used against
terrorism detainees and the
administration's suggestion
that the torture standards
could be given a relaxed
interpretation. At least I got
that right.
I'd rather be in this business,
warts and all, than any other.
To the employees of the
Times-Picayune of New
Orleans, many still without
homes (http://www.friendsoft-
hetimespicayune.comr/),
Season's Greetings and the
best of luck to you in the New
Year, pals.

Sund has enough
punishment
To the Editor:
I applaud the letter submitted
by Judge Collins in the
Reporter of Dec. 20 in regard to


the punishment handed out to
Jacqueline Sund. It was handed
in the only legal way possible.
I am certain the feelings she
lives with 24 hours every day
does punish her more than any
judge could have sentenced her
to. Can you imagine the pain
and guilt that will always be
with her? If it were possible, I
am certain she would, without
hesitation, trade places with
those children.
I am so thankful that our
justice system does not allow
for excessive punishment based
.on public feelings of what we
feel we would give. Ms. Sund
needs and deserves our
compassion and especially our
prayers, not just now, but
always. Her hurt will never end.
We don't need to change
laws and punishment. We do
need to change our verdict.

the race is on to get those final
Christmas gifts. During the next
30-36 hours, we'll all flock to the
malls, the outlets stores, the retail
giants and wrestle with each other to pick up
the last items left on the shelves.
It's a holiday ritual that has been going on
for years. No one actually perfects it - as
there is always
some new
wrinkle each
year. This year,
I'm actually ,,. *... , '
90 percent . .. " ,
done with my
shopping, so
I'm just braving Joseph DeAngelis
the weather Phone: (386) 754-0424
and the masses jdeongelis@laokecityreporter.com
to pick up a few
knick-knack items.
Earlier this week, I heard a funny skit on
the radio from a station in Mobile, Ala. The
disc jockeys were talking about holiday
shopping etiquette, particularly in the parking
lot. I'd like to share some of their "Rules for
the Parking Lot" with you.
1. If you drive past an empty parking space,
do not back up and try to reclaim it. The
thinking is that once you've passed it, you've
lost your claim to the spot.
2. If you find a parking spot, don't back into
it. It takes you twice as long to park and
forces you to drive against traffic when you
leave your parking space.
3. If you're just going back to your car to
drop off presents, give other drivers a hand
signal to express your intentions. Point at
your bags, your car and then back at the
building to let those desperate for your
parking space know that you're not going
anywhere.
4. When you get in your car to leave, don't
delay.. Some people like to sit in their cars with
the engine running, counting their money or
adjusting their appearance. In the meantime,
the line forming behind you for your parking
spot has curled around the building.
5. Give other drivers enough room to back
out of their parking space. Too often, you see
a good parking spot, but the driver cannot
back out of the parking spot because the next
driver is too close to their bumper. If this is
the case and you are the driver crowding the
parking space, you should forfeit your claim
on the upcoming space 'and apply Rule #1.
At the time, I found all of these ideas to be
amusing, but unlikely to change anyone's
driving habits. But I got to thinking about
some of my other pet peeves about holiday
shopping. That said, here's my list of "Rules
for Sane Holiday Shopping."
1. Don't bring your children with you to a
crowded store to shop for Christmas gifts.
Before I go further, I must say, I'm guilty of
violating this rule. Alas, I have learned my
.lesson. Four hours of listening to my
4-year-old say "Daddy, I want one of these," or
watching in horror as he flopped around on
the floor like a fish out of water for attention
was enough for me to put this rule at the top
of my list.
2. Don't crowd walkways and aisles. While
shopping with my son this week, before his
first tantrum, I found it almost impossible to
navigate the aisles of Best Buy because so
many people had congregated in the aisle
having conversations with relatives and
long-lost-friends. Use your cell phone, write a
letter or get a room, whatever it takes, but
please keep the aisles clear.
3. Be courteous to others. Christmas
shopping is not sanctioned by NASCAR,
Major League Soccer or the NFL. This means
no bumping, no using your hands in an
offensive manner and no tackling the other
customers. You won't be penalized 15 yards,
but you might get told what you can do with a
holiday fruit cake.
4. Be prepared to pay for your item -
either with cash, credit card or a check - and
don't waste the cashier's time by fumbling for
your wallet. Furthermore, don't waste my
time in line behind you while you go through
this ritual.
5. Remember the reason for the season.
Let's face it, we all get frazzled during these
final days before Christmas. Lines are short,
our tempers are even shorter and we find
ourselves frustrated with others around us.
But Christmas isn't about high-tech
gadgets, cool toys or a sale at Penney's. It's
about sharing, caring and family.

Economy booms through hurricanes,


high gas prices but slowdown expected


By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON - The
U.S. economy grew at the
fastest pace in 1' years in the
summer as booming auto sales
offset the adverse effects of
hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
But the year is expected to end
with much slower growth.
The Commerce Department
reported Wednesday that the
gross domestic product, the
broadest measure of economic
health, grew at a 4.1 percent
annual rate from July through
September.
That was down from a
4.3 percent estimate made a
month ago but it was still the
fastest pace since early 2004.
The gain was even more
remarkable considering that
the country was hit by devas--
tating hurricanes and gasoline
prices that topped $3 per
gallon.
"The bottom line is that we
had a very strong quarter of
growth," said David Wyss,
chief economist at Standard
& Poor's in New York.
Wyss said he believed the
hurricanes had shaved about a
half-percentage point from
growth in the third quarter,
having less of an impact than
economists had originally
feared.
The Bush administration,


"It is never a happy day for the Fed
when GDP is revised down and
inflation is revised up"

- Stephen Stanley,
chief economist at RBS Greenwich Capital.


which has been trying to high-
light the economy's strengths
as a way to bolster the presi-
dent's approval ratings, said
the 4.1 percent GDP growth
rate was evidence of a vibrant
economy.
"The economy demonstrat-
ed its resilience in the last sev-
eral months," said Commerce
Secretary Carlos Gutierrez.
On Wall Street, the Dow
Jones industrial average was
up 28.18 points to close at
10,833.73.
Analysts believe growth has
slowed substantially in the cur-
rent quarter to between 3 per-
cent and 3.5 percent, reflecting
slower increases in consumer'
spending. The slowdown
includes a slump in auto sales
reflecting falling popularity for
some sport utility vehicles now
that gas prices are much
higher.
Asha Bangalore, an econo-
mist at Northern Trust Co. in
Chicago, forecast that con-
sumer spending would slow
significantly to a growth rate of
just 0.5 percent in the current
quarter. Consumer spending


accounts for two-thirds of total
economic activity.
While rebuilding in the hur-
ricane areas will offset some of
the slowdown in consumer
demand, analysts don't expect
that stimulus to be felt until
next year, given the delays in
reconstruction efforts.
Nigel Gault, an economist at
Global Insight, a private fore-
casting firm in Lexington,
Mass., said that in addition to
the drop-off in consumer
spending, the economy will be
held back by a surging trade
deficit, which has hit records in
recent months.
"Robust industrial produc-
tion growth suggests invento-
ries are being rebuilt, which
will dampen any slowdown,"
he said.
An inflation gauge tied to the
GDP rose at a rate of
3.7 percent in the third quarter,
the fastest pace in more than a
year and up from a 3.3 percent
rate of increase in the second
quarter.
However, excluding food
and energy, the GDP inflation
measure was up a more


moderate 1.4 percent, the slow-
est increase in almost two
years. Prices by this inflation
measure had been estimated
to have increased by an even
lower 1.2 percent a month ago.
Some analysts said the slight
upward revision in inflation
would keep the Federal
Reserve tightening interest
rates with at least two more
moves forecast in January and
March.
"It is never a happy day for
the Fed when GDP is revised
down and inflation is revised
up," said Stephen Stanley, chief
economist at RBS Greenwich
Capital.
The economy had originally
been estimated to have grown
at a 3.8 percent rate in the third
quarter, a figure that was
revised up to 4.3 percent last
month and now revised down
to 4.1 percent.
The latest downward revi-
sions reflected a slightly lower
estimates in several categories
including consumer spending,
business investment and
housing construction.
The GDP report also
showed that the profits of
U.S. companies from current
production fell by $54.4 billion
in the third quarter compared
to an increase of $59.3 billion in
the second quarter.


Shareholders approve sale of Maytag to Whirlpool


By DAVID PITT
AP Business Writer

NEWTON, Iowa --
Shareholders of Maytag Corp.
on Thursday approved the sale
of the company to rival appli!
ance-maker Whirlpool Corp.
for about $1.79 billion in cash
and stock.
If the transaction is cleared
by the U.S. Department of
Justice early next year, it will
mark the end of the iconic
Iowa-based company as
an independent appliance
manufacturer.
If approved the government,
Maytag shareholders will


receive $21 a share, payable
half in cash and half in a frac-
Stion of Whirlpool stock. The
exact amount Maytag share-
holders will get in stock
depends on the value of
Whirlpool shares when the
deal closes. Maytag will
become a wholly owned
subsidiary of Whirlpool.
Newton-based Maytag was
founded in 1893 by Fred
Maytag, a maker of farm tools,
who introduced a wooden-tub
washing machine 14 years
later. His innovative designs
swept, the nation and the com-
pany has remained a home-
appliance leader for a century.

In recent years, however,
Maytag's profitability has lan-
guished as competitors
improved efficiency by out-
sourcing parts and moving
production to low-cost facto-
ries. Maytag was slow to adopt
cost-saving measures and fell
behind as competitors wooed
consumers away with new
appliance designs and
features.
Maytag, the nation's third-
largest appliance manufactur-
er, became the target of a bid-
ding battle when a New York-


based investment group
offered to buy the company for
$1.13 billion in May.
In June, Chinese appliance-
maker Haier America stepped
in with a $1.28 billion offer, but
it was withdrawn when
Whirlpool offered
$1.37 billion.
Whirlpool increased its
offer three times until Maytag
agreed to consider the deal.
Whirlpool, based in Benton
Harbor, Mich., also will
assume Maytag's debt of
$977 million.

VETS: Soldiers abroad keep spirits up


Continued From Page 1A
and Iraqi children, Tittle said.
Most soldiers maintain morale
during the holidays because
they know their work is
important.
"Our troops seem to know
why they're there," Tittle said.
"It truly brings about the sea-
son of helping to bring joy and
peace to the world."
In a holiday e-mail to soldiers'
families, Brig. Gen. Mitch
Perryman, commander of Task
Force Phoenix, wrote that his
soldiers are proud to give back
to the people of Afghanistan as
they help rebuild the nation.
"As we begin the season that
traditionally is a time when fam-
ilies come together to enjoy the
holidays, this year will be chal-
lenging for each of us as fami-
lies and service members cope
with our separation," Perryman
wrote. "We often hear this time
of year referred to as a season
of giving. Not in reference to
the gifts that are traditionally
exchanged, but a time when
people seek to give to those
who are less fortunate."
Mission Harvest America, a
service organization in
Jacksonville that has been send-
ing care packages to troops
since Desert Storm, teamed up
with Comcast Corporation to
send CDs and DVDs to all
Florida military units. Mission
Harvest America included
other gifts, such as snacks and
magazines in its holiday pack-
ages. The last shipment of
packages will be sent out today.
"For Christmas we sent
552 care packages," Mission
Harvest America president
Dewey Painter said. "At
Christmas, we obviously, do a
bigger push. There's nothing as
lonely as being away from loved
ones and friends during a spe-
cial time. It (getting, packages)
brightens their hearts. There's
no call like mail call."
The Lake City VA Medical
Center kicked off its holiday
season with an annual
Christmas parade and a "turn-
ing on the lights" ceremony
Dec. 6, during which officials
turned on more than
300,000 Christmas lights
decorating the hospital
grounds.
Local school children
stopped by throughout the
month to sing Christmas carols
and veterans received duffel
bags full of personal care items,
such as shampoo, toothpaste,
stuffed animals and wallets.
Other area volunteers brought
Christmas packages for the
patients.
"We have lots of groups com-
ing in and giving gifts," said
Eula Drexler, secretary in the
volunteer office at the
VA Medical Center.
The 105 residents at the
Robert H. Jenkins Jr. Veterans
Domiciliary Home wrote their
own Christmas lists.
"We try to go out and get
what they're wanting," domicil-
iary administrator Polly Tyler
said, adding that most residents
asked for things such as warm
sweatshirts and Wal-Mart gift
cards. "Things that are more
utilitarian are what they ask
for."
But Vietnam veteran Peter
Tallman had a more paramount
Christmas wish in mind.
"I asked for my son to come

back from Iraq," Tallman said.
During the holidays, Tallman
reflects on past Christmases,
such as time spent opening
presents with his children and
his late wife's cooking, but the
holidays also are a sad time as
he mourns for friends who have
died in the wars.
Tallman's spirits lifted
Thursday afternoon, however,
as he sat in the domiciliary's
dining room, wearing a green
sweater and a blue baseball cap
that said "proud to be a veter-
an," during the facility's annual
Christmas party.
"It's a real nice and warm
feeling inside to know there are
people out there who care
about the veterans," Tallman
said.
During the party, Navy veter-
an Eric Thomas, 73, walked
around the dining room with
glasses of red punch on a tray,
making veterans laugh as he
offered them "Bloody Marys."
Thomas is first vice com-
mander of the American
Veterans Post 86 in Keystone
Heights, one of several organi-
zations that sponsored the
Christmas party. Thomas volun-
teers at the VA Medical
Center's birthday parties every
month and at the domiciliary's
monthly Bingo games. He said

veterans is give them someone
to joke around with, because it
makes their days a little
brighter.
George Perry, 78, joked
around during the Christmas
party as he tried to guess what
was inside three gifts
domiciliary staff members gave
him.
"I think I know what this one
is," Perry said, picking up the
box. "It's shaving lotion or
something. It's heavy."
Finally, Perry unwrapped the
small box of Old Spice
aftershave.
"I get more gifts than I
deserve," he said. .
As he gets older, Perry
reflects on the true meaning of
Christmas, but he said people
put too much emphasis on the
commercial aspect of it.
'They get too tied up in giv-
ing," Perry said. '"They get wor-
ried about hurting someone's
feelings and did they give the
right gift. Christmas becomes
tiresome instead of a pleasant
day. Christmas is for the kids."


BEAUTY: City to consider mural contest
Continued From Page 1A


"We've recently gone out and
looked around downtown
and realized that we have
21 potential sites for murals."
The murals would be paint-
ed on the walls of downtown
Lake City buildings, depicting
scenes from the city's rich past.
"There is a possibility that
we would suggest themes,"
Campbell said. "Lake City has a
rich history. The University of
Florida was originally here, so
we could possibly do one about
the university leaving. Timco
was a Navy base in World War
I. We also have Olustee and
the Ichetucknee that we could
draw from."
Campbell said he would like
to begin with three murals,
commissioned by artists in
Lake City.

The mural seen here is one of the many found in downtown Lake
Placid. The Columbia County Tourism Development Council
wants to paint similar murals in downtown Lake City.
"I'd like to see the first other murals."

Also suggested is providing
protein-rich or starchy foods
that impede the absorption of
alcohol into the bloodstream
as well as making sure a des-
ignated driver or carpool
driver is present.
Distracted driving is anoth-
er major cause of wrecks


during the holidays, most of
which are preventable,
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
'"The festive holiday season
carries its share of natural
driver distracts, not to mention
the combination of other driv-
er distractions already affect-
ing many drivers that increase
the potential for a deadly traf-
fic crash," said Lt. Mike
Burroughs, public information


officer for Troop B of the
Florida Highway Patrol. "The
2004 Christmas holiday
season claimed the lives of
25 motorists in Florida."
FHP plans to use its admin-
istrative staff to perform road
patrol duties today, as well as
implementing an overtime
program that will add 15-20
additional troopers within the
troop during the holiday peri-
od.

though I'd be an arch angel and wyo.ld
have to go on missions most of the of
the time to double hocky sticks to kick
some demon rear and can you talk to
God about letting me still go to school
while having my earthly home glory
home powerful h uman form and I
promise I won't tell anyone I'm an arch
angel except my truest and closest
freinds that can keep my deepest
secrets. And just so I can balance school
and being a heavenly being when ever
I'm in school and God need me for a
vision I'll ask politely to be excused to
the bathroom then I'll take heavenly
form and fly or disappear to were ever
God needs me and when I'm at home
I'll go to my room and turn into my
heavenly .self. Oh and say hello to
Rouldoph for me.

W ith his
fourth visit
to the
Florida
Senior
Games State Champion-
ships, Jack McClellan, 63,
of Columbia County added
to his trophy total.
McClellan placed second
in the shot put and third in
the discus in his age group
at the championships at
The Villages on Dec. 3-11..
In his four years of
participating in the Florida
Senior Games, McClellan
has won a gold and a
bronze medal in the discus
and two silvers and one
bronze in the shot. He has
bested the 36-foot mark in
the shot and has thrown, the
discus more than 120 feet.
The Florida Senior
Games, for athletes 50
years and older, began as a
quaint get-together in
Bradenton in 1992. There
were 912 participants at the
first Games.
In 2004, there were 2,982
athletes competing at The
Villages and the total this
year is certain to exceed
that and push the all-time
participating mark to more
than 25,000.
The Games have been
awarded to Lee County and
Cape Coral for the next
three years. Al Oerter, a
Fort Myers resident since
1984, and an Olympic
legend (four gold medals in
the discus) will serve as
honorary chairperson.
The Games added
billiards in 2005 to bring its
competition to 24 sports.
Most require qualifying and
there are nearby venues in
Jacksonville (Oct. 2-8) and
Gainesville (Oct. 19-22), two
of 20 qualifiers statewide.
If interested in the
Games, call (866) 354-2637
or visit www.flasports.com.
Former Columbia High
and Lake City Community
College coach Joe B. Fields
joined a class of 15 as
recent inductees in the
Florida Community College
Activities Association Hall
of Fame.
Fields, who died in 2001,
also is a member of the
FCCAA Basketball Hall of
Fame - he was in the first
class selected in 1990.
As coach at LCCC, Fields
posted a record of 512-195
and led the Timberwolves
to a state championship in
1969-70 and a spot in the
national tournament field.
Lake City placed third.
The Wolves qualified for
the state tournament nine
consecutive years under
Fields and were runner-up
four times. In the state
championship season,
Fields was FCCAA Coach
of the Year and honored by
the Florida legislature.
Fields coached two
three-year stints at
Columbia High.
His first began in
1960-61, when basketball
was an afterthought at CHS.
Fields' Tigers won 18
games and made it to the
state tournament. In the two
previous seasons, Columbia
totaled three wins.

In weight training, there is powerlifting,
bodybuilding and high school competition, but only
one has the Olympic stamp of approval.
Chris Follenius won three bronze medals in the
2005 American Open Olympic lifting meet hosted by
Team Florida in Kissimmee on Dec. 24.
Follenius, who lives in Gainesville, is a physical
therapist .for Healthworks Rehab in Lake City. He
splits therapy duties with Healthworks owner Mike
Beardsley.
"I have been with Team Florida more than 10
years," Follenius said. "We are a tight-knit group of
athletes. Our goal is to spread the word about
Olympic weightlifting and get kids interested in it.
We want to return the United States to its rightful

Redskins, Giants meet


in run for playoff spot


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Washington Redskins running
back Clinton Portis runs against
the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday
in Landover, Md.


Both of the NFC East
teams have won
three straight games.
By JOSEPH WHITE
Associated Press
LANDOVER, Md. - Tiki
Barber is an MVP candidate at
the peak of his career, with a
streak of five.straight 100-yard
games and a franchise-record
220 last week.
Clinton Portis is in a groove
for the first time since moving
his No. 26 jersey to the East
Coast from Denver, with three
straight 100-yard efforts that
have helped rescue the
Washington Redskins season.
The Giants (10-4) and
Redskins (8-6) meet for the
148th time Saturday in a


cold-weather, late-December,
playoff-heavy game between
teams with three-game
winning streaks built on the
running game and defense.
The Giants take the division
with a win and can still make
the playoffs with a loss.
The Redskins can get into
the playoffs for the first time
since 1999 if they win and
Dallas, Minnesota and Atlanta'
all lose.
The Redskins' surge
seemed unlikely in late
November, when they lost'
their third straight to fall into
a tie for last place in the divi-
sion. The turning point was
the home loss to Oakland,
when coach Joe Gibbs real-
ized he was passing the ball
too much, particularly when
leading in the second half.


"I certainly had second
thoughts about the way the
second half went, so we want
to be more balanced," Gibbs
said. "We want to make sure
we don't go into a game and
come out of there saying,
'Hey, look, we let it get away
from us by throwing the ball
too much."'
.,'In four games since, the
Redskins have run 33, 40, 34
and 40 times. Mark Brunell
hasn't thrown for 200 yards in
, iv!e weeks.
Portis has become more of
a team player. He has gained
admirers in the locker room
for his willingness to block,
recover fumbles and adjust to
Gibbs' play-calling.

Rockets blast Miners


By JOHN ZENOR
Associated Press

MOBILE, Ala. - Bruce Gradkowski,
Trinity Dawson .and David Thomas capped
their Toledo careers with a terrific farewell
party.
Gradkowski threw for 298 yards and five
touchdowns, Dawson ran for 132 yards and
Thomas returned an interception for a touch-
down in the Rockets' 45-13 victory over UTEP
in the GMAC Bowl on Wednesday night.
"Bruce went out great in his last game,"
Toledo coach Tom Amstutz said. "The whole
senior group really led our team through this
bowl experience. They finished the way they
wanted to do it."
It was the fourth bowl game in five years for
Toledo (9-3), which had lost twice in a row in
the postseason.
"It's been a pleasure, and what a way to go,"
said Gradkowski, who was 18-of-32.
UTEP (8-4) ended its season with a defeat
for the 19th consecutive year and dropped to
0-4 in bowls since 1967, despite making big
strides in two years under Mike Price. Price
was fired from Alabama in May 2003 - before
coaching a game for the Tide - following a
night of drunken partying at a strip club in
Florida.
He has led UTEP to back-to-back postsea-
son games for the first time in 50 years, but
the Miners finished the season with three
losses in a row.
'We're going to be back in a bowl game next
year," Price said. 'We're going to win a bowl
game wherever we're going and break another
drought that UTEP has had for a while."
UTEP mustered one last threat just before
halftime, but Toledo left little doubt of the out-
come after that. The Rockets ran the Mid-
American Conference's record to 5-0 in the
Mobile bowl.
"We just came and played the best game we
could ever play," Thomas said. "It was kind of

like everything we did was right."
UTEP linebacker Jeremy Jones certainly
wasn't arguing that point.
'They just came out and beat us in all
aspects of the game," Jones said. 'Their
offense was striking and going on all cylinders
tonight."
Gradkowski was intercepted twice, but it
hardly mattered. The senior threw five TD
passes in a game for the first time this season
and third time in his career.
And the Rockets' defense was pretty stout,
too.
-The Rockets harried UTEP's prolific passer,
Jordan Palmer, into an off-night. He was just
14-of-33 for 163 yards with an interception and
sat out several series in the second half after
spraining his left ankle on the final play before
halftime.
He bemoaned his decision to hold onto the
ball on that final play before halftime, when
Mike Alston tackled him for . the second
straight time to keep the Miners from cutting
into a 28-13 deficit.

NFL: Old rivals face off for 148th time
Continued From Page 1B


between me and Tiki," Portis
said. "I know that. He knows
that. The whole world knows it.
Whoever has the better day is
probably going to be the
winner of this game."
When Barber and the Giants
visited the Redskins last year,


Portis ran for 148 yards in a
31-7 victory and donned a
boxer's title belt afterward to
proclaim that he, not Barber,
was the "best back in the
NFL."
Barber ruled the day when
the Redskins went north this


season, running for 206 yards
in a 36-0 shutout on Oct. 30.
"I compare it to playing
against Larry Johnson or
Shaun Alexander or some of
the other good backs that
we've faced this year," Barber
said.


LIFTER: Follenius has bench press mark


Continued From Page 1B
have not achieved in the last
40 years."
Olympic lifting consists of
the snatch and the clean and
jerk. In the snatch, the weight
is lifted from the floor to
overhead in one movement.
For the clean and jerk, the
weight is first lifted to the
chest, then after the bar comes
to a rest, is jerked overhead
without a stop or press.
The American Open was a
national level event, with lifters
from all over the country who
had to post a qualifying total to
enter.
Competing in the 69 kilo
class (up to 152 pounds),
Follenius produced a 107 kilo
snatch (235 pounds) and a 139
kilo clean and jerk (306
pounds) for a 246 kilo total
(541 pounds). He accom-
plished his goal of winning
bronze in each category.
It was the sixth American
Open for Follenius and he has
medaled - "earned hard-
ware" as he puts it - in all but
the first. He also has three
silver medals and one bronze
from National Championship
events.
Last year, Follenius qualified
and competed in the Olympic
Trials in St. Joesph, Mo.
"My goal was to make the
trials," Follenius said. "There
was no threat of me making
the team. You have to qualify
based on a world standard and
our Olympic team consisted of
three guys. The standards are
determined by how they
perform at the World
Championships the previous


year."
Follenius said the small con-
tingent is an example of how
the sport has fallen in the U.S.
High school weightlifting
includes the clean and jerk,
but also the bench press.
Prep competition was an,
outgrowth of football coaches
wanting their athletes to be
exposed to weight training
during the off-season.
"Nobody outside of high
school lifting does the bench
and clean and jerk, but it
makes perfect sense for
training for football," Follenius
said. "We tried to get the
bench changed to the snatch,
but football coaches didn't
want to hear about it."
Follenius judged a platform
at the FHSAA boys weight-
lifting state meet in Gainesville
last year. He also began in
powerlifting, which uses the
bench, squat and dead lift.
In the United States
Powerlifting Federation (now
USA Powerlifting), Follenius
twice, in 1986-87, set the
American Teenage 148-pound
class record in the bench
press His 1987 lift was
391 pounds and the record still
stands. ,
"I actually went at it
backwards," Follenius said. "I
was a former powerlifter and
graduated up to Olympic
lifting."
Speed and skill are major
components of Olympic lifting
and increases could be only
five pounds in six months of
training for someone in top
shape.


"Olympic lifting is much
more frustrating," Follenius
said. "You have to be able to
deal with that to improve. A lot
of lifters would rather see their
gains come by the handful."
Now 38 and with a family
and career, Follenius trains out
of his home and limits his
meets to three or four a year.
In 2005, those meets were the
Sunshine State Games, the
Tropical Games ,at Palm
Beaches and a tune-up for the
American Open at Spruce
Creek High School.
"I am consciously as close to
retirement as I have ever
been," Follenius said. "I
proved to myself I am still
capable of winning medals at a
national level event. I will not
fly to a meet to achieve
something."
However, Follenius noted
the American Open is in
Birmingham in 2006-07 - well
within driving distance. Also,
the 2007 event would be an
Olympic qualifier for the 2008
Games.
"If I am in shape and can still
be competitive, it is possible,"
he said.
Follenius encourages
coaches to attend USA
Weightlifting Club coaching
courses (usaweightlifting.org)
and for lifters, in school and
out, to take a look at Olympic
lifting through Team Florida.
Joe Hanson is the Team
Florida regional coach in
Jacksonville, phone (904)
502-2196, or call Follenius at
752-1652 for details.


Chrebet calls it a career


By ANDREA ADELSON
Associated Press
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - The thought of
going back into the locker room, seeing his
teammates, his uniform, his old life was too
much to bear for Wayne Chrebet.
The veteran Jets receiver stayed away for
more than a month so he could come to
terms with the inevitable - that he would
never be a part of that locker room again.
Once Chrebet made his way to the Jets
facility Thursday for the first time since
sustaining another concussion Nov. 6, he
realized how long he had been away.
Dust caked the boxes in his locker, and
mail overflowed from adoring fans sharing
their well wishes. Chrebet confirmed his
11-year career was over, ending a love story
between the little receiver that could and the
fans that embraced the hometown hero.
"Some days you wake up and you don't feel
like anything's changed," Chrebet said, his
lips quivering and eyes watering. "And then
your team is playing on TV and it hits you in

the gut and makes it tough. Just accepting it
and not fighting it - it's not a fight I can win
right now. I'm not going to get back on the
field. I think everybody's aware of that."
The decision to walk away was difficult and
painful. Chrebet had a series of head injuries
that plagued him the last three seasons.

In this photo provided by Warner Bros., a young woman Sarah
(Jennifer Aniston) finds herself embroiled in an affair with Beau
(Kevin Costner), an older man, who may have inspired the movie
The Graduate' and that her grandmother was the inspiration for
Mrs. Robinson in 'Rumor Has It...'



'Rumor' is



this movie's



no good


By DAVID GERMAIN
AP Movie Writer

There are a couple of clas-
sic caveats about Hollywood:
Never put your own money
into a mdvie and avoid work-
ing with animals or children.
Here's another: Do not draw
comparisons between your


run-of-the-mill
movie and a
great one.
That's the
built-in problem
with the latest
movie in Rob
Reiner's slow
slide toward
ob 1 ivion ,
"Rumor Has It,"
starring
Jen nife r
Aniston as a
woman who


Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman
and some verses of Simon and
Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson"
only emphasize what a dreary,
artificial affair Reiner and
screenwriter T.M. Griffin have
concocted.

learns her


messed-up family may have
been the inspiration for the
book and movie 'The
Graduate."
At first glance, it sounds
like a potentially cute idea,
and perhaps with some wit,
energy and bite to it, the story
could have been a blackly
comic successor to Mike
Nichols' 1967 masterpiece.
But "Rumor Has It" does
not even rise to the level of
trivially pleasant romantic
comedy. The movie just sits
there, lumbering along with
nothing to offer but occasion-
ally caustic sparks provided
by Shirley MacLaine as the
supposed source of Anne
Bancroft's Mrs. Robinson.
There are few laughs and
little drama to the movie,
whose inclusion of the famous
seduction scene between


has stagnated
and who has
fainthearted-
ly agreed to
marry her
boyfriend,
Jeff (Mark
Ruffalo).
With Jeff in
tow, - Sarah-
returns home
to Pasadena
for her sis-
ter's wedding


(Mena Suvari), and an awk-
ward reunion with her widow-
er dad (Richard Jenkins),
whose late wife would equate
to Katharine Ross' character,
Mrs. Robinson's daughter, in
'The Graduate."
Sarah's saucy grandma
(MacLaine) lets slip that just
before her parents married,
her mom ran off with another
man, returning home to wed
her dad after a brief fling. An
aunt reveals the other guy
was best buddies with
"Graduate" author Charles
Webb, and Sarah's off and
running to find the connec-
tion between her own family
and the strange triangle of
the . Robinson gals and
Hoffman's Benjamin
Braddock, who made off with
Ross' Elaine Robinson
moments after she married
another man.


Huffman hits road

in 'Transamerica'


By DAVID GERMAIN
AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES - Felicity
Huffman wasn't supposed to
win the Emmy over her more
glamorous and talked-about
"Desperate Housewives" co-
stars. But she did. Now, she's
an Academy Award favorite
for her performance in
'"Transamerica" - in which
she plays a man prepping for
sex-change surgery.
Not bad for an actress who
was thinking a few years ago
that maybe she wasn't sup-
posed to have a Hollywood
career, after all.
Through the few ups and
many downs in her career,
Huffman often thought about
quitting, pulling into her drive-
way and crying with her head
on the steering wheel after
bad days and failed auditions.
Huffman managed to fleet-
ingly catch the eye of audi-
ences with bit parts 'The


Spanish Prisoner" and
"Magnolia," and she endeared
herself to a cult of fans who
caught her as the slightly
flighty producer on the
acclaimed but short-lived
TV series "Sports Night."
To those who wondered
why Huffman did not steadily
rise to bigger and better parts,
the answer is easy.
"No one offered them to
me," Huffman, 43, told The
Associated Press over a salad
at a caf6 near the home she
and her husband, actor
William H. Macy, share with
their two daughters in Los
Angeles' San Fernando Valley.
"I'd get three lines here,
four days in a movie there.
When you'd drive on to the
set, you don't know where
you're going, there's no chair
for you. They're going, 'Who
are you again?' This was the
first time that I'd been consid-
ered for a major part, much
less a lead."


It's all Mozart, all the time,


as Austria prepares for a


yearlong birthday bash


By WILLIAM J. KOLE
Associated Press

SALZBURG, Austria ,- Roll over,
Beethoven. Beat it, Brahlms. Mozart is
back with a vengeance, though he'd
probably flip his powdered wig if he
could see the fuss being made about his
250th birthday.
As Austria and the world gear up for a
jubilee year of concerts and celebrations
marking the maestro's birth, his home-
town of Salzburg is on the verge of
becoming Schmaltzburg.
Suddenly, Amadeus is everywhere,
and not just on the usual T-shirts, calen-
dars, coffee mugs and ubiquitous
"Mozart balls" - small, round, unfortu-
nately named candies that inevitably
trigger snickers among tourists.
Shelves are stacked high with bottles
of Mozart beer and wine, Mozart baby
bottles, Mozart milkshakes, Mozart
knickers, Mozart umbrellas and Mozart
jigsaw puzzles. There's Mozart torte ("a
symphony of tastes," its creator promis-
es) and even Mozartwurst, a sausage of
beef, pork and pistachios courtesy of a
Salzburg butcher who claims the recipe
came to him in a dream.
Complaints of excessive kitsch aside,
it's a fitting frenzy of tribute for a musi-
cal genius who gave the universe "Don
Giovanni," '"The Marriage of Figaro,"
'The Magic Flute," his haunting
"Requiem" and hundreds of other
works.
"Mozart is back - big time," said Ilse'
Blank, who works for a Vienna tuxedo
rental shop that's scrambling to dress
clients who want to look like Amadeus at
balls and parties.
Poking fun at th, unprecedented
hype, the organizers of Mozart 2006

playful logo: a famed 18th-century

Amadeus was born in Salzburg, Austria.


portrait of the composer doctored to
show his eyes rolling back in his head.
'"There are fears of a possible overkill,"
conceded Peter Marboe, overseeing
remembrances in the Austrian capital.
But it's all about the music.
"Mozart, for me, is the light I orient
my life around. He is a gift from God,"


Heath Ledger's latest,.


'Casanova, a so-so film


By CHRISTY LEMIRE
AP Movie Critic

Placing "Casanova" on a
double feature with
"Brokeback.Mountain" would
offer an intriguing contrast -
or at least provide fodder for
some film student's
grad-school paper.
The former features Heath
Ledger as the most notorious-
ly fervent heterosexual male
in history. In the latter,
Ledger stars as a stoic cow-
boy who's conflicted about his
romantic longings for another
man.
Together they confirm
something that's become
increasingly evident as
Ledger's career progresses:
This is an actor of seemingly
immeasurable range and ver-
satility. (Also this year, he had
a flashy supporting role as a
volatile surf shop owner in
"Lords of Dogtown," and he
co-starred with Matt Damon
in the fanciful if wildly uneven
fairy tale 'The Brothers
Grimm.")
But the movie "Casanova"
most calls to mind in Ledger's
filmography is "A Knight's
Tale," the one that helped
make the Australian actor a
star in the first place. Both
allow him to showcase his sly
comic timing; both reveal a
real charisma beneath the
pretty-boy good looks.
Director Lasse Hallstrom
is trying too hard to evoke
the complex hilarity of a
Shakespearean comedy
with this story set in 1753
Venice; even before the
mistaken identities, mis-
communications and gen-
der-bending escapades pile
up, you expect that the
characters could bust out
in iambic pentameter at any
moment.
"Casanova" is fun,
though. Based on a script


ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ledger) tries to win the affection of Francesca Bruni (Sienna
Miller) in 'Casanova.'


by Jeffrey Hatcher and
Kimberly Simi, it's a giddy
romp more along the lines of
Hallstrom's "Chocolat" than
his self-serious films like
"The Shipping News." (And,
'this being awards season
and all, you'd swear that this
lushly photographed period
piece had similarly come
from the Miramax year-end
vault.)

DEAR ABBY


New bride's faith in marriage

is rocked by parents' divorce


DEAR ABBY: Two weeks
before my wedding, my
mother announced that she
was leaving my father. Now,
two months after my wedding,
their divorce papers have
been filed.
I am 23 years old and
should be able to handle the
news, but I cannot. I have
been devastated by the end of
a marriage that I thought was
a good one until only a few
months ago.
My mother is now behaving
like a college student. She
parties all night, dates several
guys at once, and calls to tell
me about it. I have quit
answering my phone when.
I see, it is her.
I don't answer my father's
calls either. All he does is
complain about being lonely
and broke, and a single father
to my teenage brother.
I don't want to hear their
stories or be their confidante.
I need time to mourn the
breakup of my parents' mar-
riage. My own marriage is
suffering because of the
recent turn of events and it
doesn't seem fair. What can I
do? - NOT-SO-HAPPY
NEWLYWED
DEAR NOT SO HAPPY:
Please accept my sympathy
for the demise of your par-
ents' marriage. If you were in
the dark about the fact that
they had been -having prob-
lems until just before your
wedding, it is understandable


Abigail Van Buren
www.deorobby.com

that you are in shock and
grieving. You must also be
wondering if what you
thought was real was only a
mirage.
For the sake of your
emotional well-being and to
protect your own marriage,
I hope you will take the advice
I am about to offer. Inform
your mother that you can-
not/will not be her confi-
dante. Period. Then let your
father know that although you
feel sympathy for him, you
cannot be his trouble dump
either, because it's affecting
your marriage. Explain that if
he needs a place to "vent" -
and I'm sure he does -
he should do it with a
professional counselor.
You may need counseling
yourself, right now, in order to
get your own head straight, so
please do it now rather than
later. Your problem isn't that
your parents' marriage didn't
make it to the finish line. It's
that they hid their problems
so well, you are no longer
sure what a healthy marriage
looks like.


DEAR ABBY: I am a
28-year-old single mother of
two, pregnant with my third
child. Because of my current
circumstances, I have decided
the best thing to do is place
this child up for adoption. I
have a lot of support in this,
including my other children.
My problem is with
strangers. People I don't
know constantly ask ques-
tions about the upcoming
birth, including name choices
and gender. How do I stop all
the questions without going
into detail about my plans? I
have tried simply saying, "I'm
placing the child for adop-
tion," but then people have
the nerve to start questioning
my judgment! - PEEVED
AND PREGNANT
DEAR PEEVED: The peo-
ple asking questions about
your baby are trying to reach
out and be supportive. They
have no idea that this is a
sensitive subject.
When you are asked about
the gender of the child, or
what you plan to name it,
smile and tell them you don't
know the sex of the baby and
no name has been chosen yet.
Then either change the sub-
ject or walk away. No rule of
etiquette demands that you
continue a conversation with a
stranger.

Drafted by City Manager Wendell Johnson Dec. 10, the offer addresses the Intermodal Parks future anticipated wastewater demand by proposing Plum Creek, the land owner, agree to partially fund 11.2 miles of sewage pipelines (around $6 million) and a regional pump station at the site ($600,000), along with other associated costs ($600,000). To finance the project, the city proposed Plum Creek fund the ini tial cost of design and construction of the new infrastructure. Once complete, the city would develop a fair share analysis and refund Plum Creeks share from funds collected by sewer system charg es, tap fees and other utility impact fees generated by end users (busi nesses, industries, residential areas, etc).

I-75 lane closed for welcome sign until Tuesday By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.com A portion of Interstate 75 just south of the Florida Welcome Center at the Georgia line will be closed nightly until Tuesday as the Florida Department of Transportation conducts soil testing to prepare for a new welcome sign. Travelers can expect lane closures between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. at the possible con struction site. The new sign will sit close to the Bellville Road overpass, which will experience daytime lane closures between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The closures will not be the entire southbound road, but simply the outside or inside lane in one direc tion. According to Gina Busscher, public informa tion officer for FDOT dis trict two, the closures will allow contractors to con duct soil borings, or testing, on the proposed location of the new welcome sign. The tests must be finished before final design work can be completed on the sign. In total, Busscher expects approximately two miles of I-75 to be closed during the next three days. Currently, theres only a small metal sign welcoming visitors to Florida. However, the new design will provide something more attractive at the Florida-Georgia line, Busscher said. The project has been in discussion for over six years.

By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com Columbia County sher iffs deputies arrested a man suspected of steal ing a $600 bike last week, CCSO reports. Deputies arrested Joseph Benjamin Newton, 29, of 299 SW Tunsil Street, Tuesday after a group of Sitel employees identified him as the cul prit behind the theft of a co-workers bike, accord ing to the arrest report. A worker noticed his blue Hardrock 21-speed mountain bike was miss ing from the bike rack in front of his office and reported it stolen after he left work on Dec. 18 around 5:00 p.m., the report said. The victim claimed the bike was valued at over $600, including features such as a computer device mounted on the handle bars, a rack over the back tire, a water bottle holder and an air pump on the bike, the report said. The victim admitted he had forgotten the lock and left the bike unsecured outside that day, accord ing to the report. After being shown pic tures from surveillance video of the area, many employees identified the suspect as Newton, the report said. An employee acquaint ed with Newtons sister told deputies he was stay ing in a burnt-down house off of SR 242A, deputies said.

Comedian Will Ferrell has said the inspiration for his character in the “Anchorman” movies was Mort Crim, who moved to northeast Florida in 1998 after retiring as a TV news anchor in Detroit. Crim tells area newspapers that the film is a satire and he doesn’t take offense to Ferrell’s performance. He says he always took his work seriously but tried not to take himself too seriously. “I think the first movie was a parody of anchor people,” Crim said. “The second is a parody of the whole 24-hour news cycle. The key moment is when Burgundy says, ‘Why do we have to give them what they need? Let’s give them what they want.’” Now 78, Crim has written seven books and is starting to write his eighth, which is about working in television news in the 1970s and 1980s.Some speeding Fla. drivers issued lottery tickets MELBOURNE — Police in a central Florida city have been issuing scratch-off lottery tickets instead of speeding tickets to Christmas Day travelers. By early Wednesday afternoon, Melbourne Police officers had handed out 30 lottery tickets along with warnings to drivers caught speeding or making other traffic violations. Sgt. Jamie Rocque tells Florida Today that officers bought the lottery tickets with their own money to spread a bit of holiday cheer while ensuring public safety. Rocque says the officers have been getting “a lot of surprised looks.”Homeless youth advocate has first-hand experience TAMPA — Jeremiah Kerr, an advocate for homeless youth, understands his cli-ents’ struggles on a personal level. “I realize now I was a homeless youth,” Kerr, 28, said. It’s a revelation he has come to accept as the outreach and community develop-ment coordinator at the Ybor Youth Clinic on Seventh Avenue in Ybor City, where he advises dozens of runaways and other homeless teenagers and young adults. “If more people had more hands-on experience with the homeless, even spoke to a homeless person, they would have a better understanding of their living conditions,” Kerr said. Kerr’s advocacy for homeless young people, especially lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teenagers, drew the attention of Tampa City Councilwoman Lisa Montelione, who came to know Kerr through his work with the TampaHillsborough Homeless Initiative. “He really genuinely cares for those kids and works tirelessly to help them find their path,” Montelione said. “He looks very young for his age. That may be why (they) relate to him.” Kitna to donate salary to high school IRVING, TexasJon Kitna will earn $53,000 to serve as the Cowboys’ third-string quarterback for one week — and he plans to donate that money to the Seattle-area high school where he’s now a coach. Kitna told The Dallas Morning News of his plans Wednesday. The 41-year-old Kitna was running the scout team at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, Wash., when he heard about Cowboys starter Tony Romo’s injury. He’ll suit up Sunday as the back-up to Kyle Orton if Romo can’t play. Kitna retired after the 2011 season, his 15th in the league. He says he sent a text message to Cowboys coach Jason Garrett on Tuesday and told him he could play this week if needed.Miss. children learn with blues curriculum TUNICA — In cotton country a couple miles east of the Mississippi River, just off a road known as the blues highway, fourth graders at Tunica Elementary School are exploring the Delta’s homegrown music to learn about rhythm, rhyme and chord progression. Their teacher is also using the new Mississippi Blues Trail Curriculum to help the children absorb information in unexpected ways. Chevonne Dixon is one of the first teachers in the state to incorporate the blues into science, math, social studies and English lessons. So far this school year, the 9and 10-year-olds in her class have written blues songs about the weather. They’ve composed short ditties about the travails of being a kid. And they’ve read classic blues lyrics to learn the challenges of growing cotton. “It makes them recall information, especially with that slow, melodic sound,” said Dixon, who leads her classroom with a calm demeanor that brings out a quiet, respectful manner in the children.Pope’s Christmas wish: hope for a better world VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis offered Christmas wishes Wednesday for a better world, praying for protec-tion for Christians under attack, bat-tered women and trafficked children, peace in the Middle East and Africa, and dignity for refugees fleeing mis-ery and conflict around the globe. Francis delivered the traditional “Urbi et Orbi” (Latin for “to the city and to the world”) speech from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica to more than 70,000 cheering tour-ists, pilgrims and Romans in the square below. In his first Christmas message since being elected pontiff in March, he asked for all to share in the song of Christmas angels, “for every man or woman ... who hopes for a better world, who cares for others,” humbly. Among places ravaged by conflict, Francis singled out Syria, which saw its third Christmas during civil war; South Sudan; the Central African Republic; Nigeria; and Iraq. The Vatican has been trying to raise concern in the world for perse-cution and attacks on Christians in parts of the Middle East and Africa.

Tustenuggee Avenue, the report said. Newton was arrested and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $5,000 bond. He faces a charge of grand theft. ARRESTContinued From 1A ture that spans the entire southbound lane. Bids for construction, Busscher said, should be placed in May 2014, but plans for the sign must be submitted to Tallahassee by February. Normally, the FDOT does not authorize lane clo-sures during the holidays. However, the borings must be completed to finalize the design — the blueprints needed to construct and install the new sign. The State Road 136 bridge in Suwannee River in Columbia County will be repainted as part of a FDOT project to repaint four bridg-es in three counties. Due to the project, the bridge will experience lane closures until the project is done. FDOT employee Laurie Windham said the closures should be expected until the project is complete, and CLOSUREContinued From 1Aport an additional 12,000 gallons per day, according to the letter. However, Economic Develop-ment Board Executive Director Jesse Quillen estimated the Intermodal Park would require around one million gallons per day (MGD), “but that would be several years down the road when it’s at full capacity.” Even if the pipelines and pump station were in place today, St. Margaret’s Wastewater Treatment Plant only has a 100,000 gallon-per-day surplus, the proposal said. However, the city has been working on con-structing the Kicklighter Wastewater Treatment Plant, a new 3 MGD facil-ity that has already been approved, funded and designed by the city coun-cil. “The city may elect to construct the Kicklighter WWTP in phases,” Johnson said in the city’s proposal. “But given ade-quate notice, a combina-tion of capacity at the St. Margaret’s WWTP and the Kicklighter WWTP will provide 1 MGD of treatment capacity allo-cated to the [Intermodal Park] project, timed to meet the demand of an end user requiring that capacity.” Quillen said infrastructure installation plans were largely up in the air until they receive concrete plans for individual businesses and projects looking to develop on the site. “Numbers are almost irrelevant until you identify a specific need. I don’t know if we need all of that $7 mil-lion initially,” Quillen said. “Everybody is kind of hedging their bets right now because we don’t have an end user yet. Until that happens, we’re really speculating.” According to Johnson’s letter, the regional pump station and pipeline would be up and running around a year after construction began on the projects. Plum Creek’s response to the proposal was unclear at press time. Both Johnson and Plum Creek’s Real Estate Manager, Allison Megrath, could not be reached for com-ment, while on their holi-day vacations. Local government and business leaders have been focusing on making the Intermodal Park “shovel ready” by providing the utilities and infrastructure businesses would need to begin construction. Quillen said there were a few “solid prospects” inter-ested in developing in the Intermodal Park already, but were reluctant to finalize any plans until the necessary resources to con-duct busi-ness are in place. “It’s like a chick-en-and-the-egg problem,” Quillen said. “[Lake City/Columbia County are] expecting a return on it, so they need to be willing to make an investment on it. We know one thing—there needs to be a pipe out there that serves those sites. Somewhere in there there’s a deal... and we’re going to get it done.” PROPOSALContinued From 1A‘Numbers are almost irrelevant until you identify a specic need. I don’t know if we need all of that $7 million initially... Everybody is kind of hedging their bets right now because we don’t have an end user yet. Until that happens, we’re really speculating.” — Jesse Quillen, Executive Director of the Economic Development Board By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comSheriff’s deputies arrested a man who claimed he punched a woman in the face “out of instinct” follow-ing a dispute over sex and drugs, CCSO reports. A crying woman with a swollen left cheek approached deputies on the corner of NE Patterson Avenue and E Duval Street around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, claiming James Grant, 52, of 1410 E Duval Street, punched her in the face moments earlier, according to the arrest report. The woman allegedly visited Grant’s residence with a friend earlier in the eve-ning, at which point she and Grant entered into a verbal argument. According to the report, she said Grant told her to “shut up” and that she needed to learn not to treat people badly. The woman and Grant had been seeing each other for about two years, hav-ing sex and using illicit substances such as crack cocaine and prescription pills, the report said. However, the woman said Grant typically coerced her into having sex by offering her drugs, which she accepted because she “would feel trapped,” according to the report. She said she turned down drugs and denied Grant’s sexual advances during the night of the incident, the report said. At some point during the argument, Grant allegedly threatened to hurt her and demanded she get in a vehicle parked out-side the residence. However, she denied, and moments later Grant punched her in the face, prompting her to flee the scene on foot before she encountered the deputies at Patterson and Duval, the report said. When Grant was detained for questioning, he told deputies the woman came to his place asking for pills, according to the report. He said the woman “threw a tantrum” after he told her he did not have any pills, the report said. As he was escorting her to a friend’s vehicle so she could be taken home, Grant said the woman slapped him after he placed a hand on her shoulder to help her into the car, deputies said. Grant then admitted punching her in the face, but said he knew it was wrong and only “reacted out of instinct,” the report said. A search of his bedroom revealed crack cocaine, a crack pipe and a small amount of a green leafy sub-stance he claimed was syn-thetic marijuana, according to deputies. Grant was arrested and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $7,000 bond. He faces charges of battery, pos-session of a controlled substance and drug equip-ment.Report: Man punches woman ‘out of instinct’ Grant accessories. “It’s not too bad, we expected it.” Although Christmas has passed, the store is not seeing a lot of customers looking for after-Christmas sales, but customers taking advantage of Christmas’ sale prices. “We’re definitely still making sales,” Rader said, noting he believes some customers used money they got for Christmas to make post-Christmas purchses. “People are still coming in like regular. People are using their Christmas money, but we haven’t seen anyone looking for after-Christmas sales yet.” Rader said the store may implement some after-Christmas sales, but he hasn’t decided yet with the popularity of the items he’s been selling. “People like smart phones,” he said. “People, especially young people, like to be texting.”Looking for ammoJohn Woodley, JW Weaponry owner, said Christmas sales on rifles and handguns were good with sales giving 10-20 percent off manufacturer’s suggested retail price. “Probably the most popular item was ammunition,” he said. “We had a lot of folks looking for ammo. We went through quite a bit, a couple cases, of ammuni-tion.” In addition to the rush on ammunition, Woodley said the business experienced a tradition-al sales increase on firearms for youths. “Youth rifles and shotguns are probably our biggest selling firearms and guns during the holiday,” he said. “We did a lot of business in those and we have 10 15 percent off MSRP.” JW Weapontry is continuing to run its Christmas sales specials and many will remain on-going through the remainder of the year. “I haven’t given much thought to what we’re going to do for the New Year sales, but we’re definitely going to add some stuff for the first of the year,” Woodley said, noting business will be closed Jan. 1-2. “We’ve got six or eight shipments of firearms, ammunition and acces-sories coming. Starting with Jan. 3 through that weekend we’re going to have a lot of discounts, items marked down and a lot of new inventory and new products we haven’t had before.” SALESContinued From 1ABy JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE — An administrative law judge has sided with the Florida Board of Education in a dispute about new require-ments that could make it harder for faculty mem-bers to get --and keep --tenure-like contracts at state colleges. The United Faculty of Florida in June challenged a rule that set new guidelines for “continuing” contracts at state colleges, including a requirement that colleges consider measures of stu-dent success in awarding the contracts. The state college system was long known as the community-college system. But Administrative Law Judge June C. McKinney rejected the faculty group’s arguments that the Board of Education had over-stepped its legal authority in approving the rule early this year. “(The) state board has adequate rulemaking authority and has com-plied with its statutory directive … to focus on high-level policy decisions for personnel and contract-ing guidelines,’’ McKinney wrote in a 30-page ruling Monday. The rule directed boards of trustees at state colleges to develop policies for con-tinuing contracts, which are like tenure. But it also included requirements that would have to be included in the policies. Among other things, the United Faculty of Florida challenged part of the rule that increased the required period of time for instructors to qualify for the tenure-like contracts from three to five years of service. Also, the fac-ulty group questioned part of the rule that called for performance reviews that could lead to instructors losing their continuing contracts. Another disputed issue centered on measures of student success that the Board of Education said should be used in deter-mining whether faculty members receive or keep the contracts. While col-lege trustees would deter-mine the criteria, the rule said the measures could involve such things as learning gains, graduation rates and job placements. “Apart from all of this rule’s other obvious flaws, the SBE (State Board of Education) most directly and egregiously exceeds its rule authority … where it obligates all colleges to determine ways to mea-sure student success, and to use such student success measures as an essential criteria for both granting and removing ten-ure,’’ the United Faculty of Florida argued in its peti-tion filed in June. “Without doubt, this part of the rule blatantly enlarges the pro-visions of … the laws alleg-edly being implemented by this rule, neither of which says anything about student success being used by colleges as tenure granting/removal criteria, unlike the statutes govern-ing K-12 education which do so in great detail.’’ But attorneys for the Board of Education argued that state law gave the board the legal authority to adopt the rule. “Requiring satisfactory service for a period of time, successful perfor-mance of duties, and dem-onstration of professional competence are all mini-mum standards address-ing personnel,’’ the Board of Education said in a document filed in October. “These are factors which should be addressed in a rule governing contracts for persons employed in an instructional capacity.” Board of Ed wins college faculty fight Bowden’s grandson killed in one-car crashAssociated PressWINTER HAVEN — Authorities say former Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden’s grand-son was one of two men killed when their car flipped into a small ditch off a central Florida road. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that 23-year-old Taylor Jeffrey Bowden and 25-year-old Rafael Fernandes De Aguiar Valim, who had been driving, both died in the Thursday crash in Winter Haven. Sheriff’s office public information officer Carrie Eleazer confirmed Bowden’s relation to the famous football coach. A third man — 22-year-old Robert Lewis Edwards — was rescued by crews who heard him cry for help. He spent hours in water up to his neck and was being treated for hypothermia. The details of the crash are being investigated, but the sheriff’s office reports that alcohol appears to be a factor.Recall issued for cheeseAssociated PressATLANTA — Georgia Department of Agriculture officials say a recall has been issued for cheeses being sold in Georgia and Florida. Officials said Thursday that 90 pounds of Flat Creek Farm and Dairy’s Heavenly Blue cheese and 78 pounds of the compa-ny’s Aztec Cheddar cheese may be contaminated with Salmonella. Inspectors are checking stores and warehouses to ensure that the products are removed from shelves and displays. U.S. Department of Agriculture officials say no illnesses related to the products have been report-ed. USDA officials say six people who ordered the products online from the Swainsboro, Ga.-based company are being noti-fied. Officials say the Heavenly Blue Cheese products are marked with the lot code 130916XHB and the ched-dar cheese is marked with 130823XAZ. Aztec Cheddar and others may have Salmonella.

N o sir. This is not going to be a column about New Year’s resolutions for Congress. We all know that the paper they would be written on, or the digital energy, would be wasted. This is about resolutions for the rest of us, we the people, regarding our civic duties. This is going to be an important election year. (This of course implies that some elections are not important, a thought you will never hear on Fox News or MSNBC.) In November all the members of the House and one-third of the Senate must stand for reelection. That could determine many of the issues we have been debating for years. We should resolve not to throw all the bums out. We need some for institutional memory and parliamen-tary know how. Otherwise, smart alecky staffs would run everything. But we should consider unelecting those who thwart the will of the majority and those who hate govern-ment and seek to undermine it and worry about the president’s birth certificate. Let them become stock-brokers or motivational speakers. We should try to resist pouring vituperation on Obamacare until it is implemented and we find out if it works. It is exhausting having to hate something so intensely all the time. Imagine if Republicans had another issue to get all hot and bothered about! Just think of 40 consecutive votes on climate change! We really should not start the 2016 presidential election until 2015 at the earliest. Perhaps it would be refreshing to refrain from focus-ing laser-like attention on Hillary Clinton and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for a few months.... This is a long shot, but think how different our lives would be if we didn’t have to get so upset about politics every day that we have to take anti-nausea medicine and avoid certain people who think differently (wrongly) from us. Wow! Imagine a country in which we could have civil discourse about such issues as immigration and the environment and taxes. Well, maybe not taxes. Perhaps we could resolve to find out more about the issues and uncover facts, read more newspa-pers and online news. How cool if everyone could agree on the basics, such as how a bill becomes a law or the true nature of filibusters. And we could demand that our children take mandatory classes in civics and history again. It seems that many foreign children know more about U.S. history than many of our children do. Every child should know, for example, that the Fourth of July should actually be celebrated on July 2. We should always remember that we have thousands of men and women in uniform who make daily sacrifices for the rest of us. We should never forget that thousands have been killed and maimed. We should resolve to do all that we can to make life better for the survivors and their families and we should honor the families of those who gave up their lives. We should resolve to make it easier, not harder, for our citizens to vote. We should expand voting hours, not restrict them. We should organize carpools to get people to the polls. We should not make senior citizens who have been vot-ing for decades spend time and effort to retrieve long-lost birth cer-tificates in order to vote. We should rejoice that people of all shapes, sizes and colors want to vote. As exemplary citizens, we should all lose weight, exercise, eat more fruit and vegetables and get plenty of rest. Finally, we should resolve not to keep alive all those poinsettias we collected over the holidays. By mid-January we are saddened by those spindly stalks and shedding, des-sicated leaves. Besides, who knows what exotic colors next year’s poin-settias will sprout.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Thanks for thinking Lake City first In search of the big pictureO nce upon a time, in a state far, far away, an assistant contract specialist in a huge space and defense company (that was me) sat for a job evaluation with his supervisor. The supervisor conceded that the employee was doing a satisfactory job, but pointed out a problem: I was told that I needed to see the “big picture.” Interested in doing a better job, I asked what the big pic-ture was, and what can I do to learn how to see it. Well, this was a ques-tion the boss just couldn’t answer. It was apparently a mysterious secret, which the “grasshopper” needs to learn on his own. Well, I worked with the company for six years, and never figured out what their “big picture” was. Maybe their “big picture” was dif-ferent from mine? For me, the big picture was to discover what I have to contribute, what I would really enjoy as a career for my lifetime, and do it. I finally found a way I could help others build happy suc-cessful lives for themselves, first through counseling, then teaching, and then writing. During my years counseling troubled children, youth, and fami-lies, and teaching psychology at Florida Gateway College, I’ve come to see my own “big picture.” In America, all of us are Americans, although we’re very diverse and unique from each other. We’re all different ages, and we’re often classified by our age and our gen-eration. Each generation is around twenty years apart, and each gen-eration has its own special and unique characteristics. Of course there are infinite individual differ-ences, but each generation has its own identifying traits. There’s the “millenniums,” born since about the year 2000. “Generation X” is generally seen as the children of the “baby boom-ers,” who were the big generation resulting from the population explosion that occurred when men and women who served and fought World War II, the “big one,” returned home and started fami-lies of their own. And of course, the baby boomers’ parents: the ones who won the war for us, lived the “American Dream,” built the country into a leading business and industrial leader of the free world, and did so much to build the America we know today! You have probably heard them called the “Great Generation,” a title I believe they thoroughly deserve. They built America into the fre-est and most productive nation on Earth, and showed us a shining example of how a nation can be a good citizen and good neighbor with all nations. What does this mean? What can you do? I think it helps if we get to know folks of all ages, of each generation, and get an understand-ing of their special characteristics, traits, and values. I find that the more I know about each genera-tion, the more I appreciate and respect them, and what they each contribute to our country and each of our lives. Take time to associ-ate with folks of all ages, and learn about who they are. Everyone has a story, and special talents, skills, knowledge, principles and values that keep America great. Reach out. Look for those good things they are, and that they have to offer us. Appreciate their differ-ences. It really takes all kinds. Say “thanks,” or do something to show your appreciation this sea-son, and make 2014 an even better year. T hanks to you, local merchants are reporting brisk sales for the Christmas shopping sea-son. What’s more, they’re expecting the trend to continue. As folks come in to redeem gift certificates, to spend Christmas cash or just to check out the post-holiday sales, they’re greeted by all kinds of bargains on local storeowners’ shelves. That cash gets recirculated into the community and ends up helping fund local schools, infrastructure upkeep and more. You know the story. It’s one of those “everybody wins” scenarios. So good job, Lake City.Keep up the good work.It’s smart to think your town first when spending your hard-earned money. TODAY IN HISTORY On this dateIn 1512, King Ferdinand II issued the original Laws of Burgos, which were intended to regulate the treat-ment of indigenous people on Hispaniola by Spanish settlers. In 1904, James Barrie’s play “Peter Pan: The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up” opened at the Duke of York’s Theater in London. In 1927, the musical play “Show Boat,” with music by Jerome Kern and libretto by Oscar Hammerstein II, opened at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York. In 1932, New York City’s Radio City Music Hall opened to the public in midtown Manhattan. (Opening night, consisting of several hours of live acts, was con-sidered a disaster, prompting the owners to shift to a format of showing a movie followed by a stage show.) In 1945, 28 nations signed an agreement creating the World Bank. In 1947, the original version of the puppet character Howdy Doody made its TV debut on NBC’s “Puppet Playhouse.” In 1949, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands signed an act recognizing Indonesia’s sovereignty after more than three centuries of Dutch rule. In 1968, Apollo 8 and its three astronauts made a safe, nighttime splashdown in the Pacific. In 1970, the musical play “Hello, Dolly!” closed on Broadway after a run of 2,844 performances. In 1979, Soviet forces seized control of Afghanistan. President Hafizullah Amin, who was overthrown and executed, was replaced by Babrak Karmal.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, December 27 & 28, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V A s we approach the new year many are thinking of the things they want to do dif-ferently next year. New Years resolutions will be the topic of many conver-sations. Most of them will be about weight loss, liv-ing healthier, finances, etc. The most important resolution we can make is to serve God better in the coming year. My prayer is that we all strive to do what His Word says we ought to do. Paul, writing to the Galatians said, “I say then: walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16 NKJ). The Galatians were noted for their impetuosity, fickle-ness and love for new and curious things. Does this not sound like the people of America today? We are a nation of people who act without thinking; doing things on impulse; and we certainly have a love for new things, especially in the electronic line. It seems we are never satisfied. Paul tells us in the next verse (17) “For the flesh lust against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things you wish.” In other words we are in a spiritual war everyday. How do we as Christians win this war? It’s simple. The side that wins is the side that we feed the most. It’s sad today that many Christians feed the carnal or fleshly side more than the spiritual side. Paul says in verses 19-21 that the works of the flesh are evi-dent. That means they are clear for all to see. They are: adultery, fornication, uncleanliness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery (the abuse of prescribed medication), hatred, contentions, jealou-sies, outburst of wrath, self-ish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murderers, drunkenness, revelries. Some think that their lives as a Christian are not seen by anyone; but I assure you they are. They are visible for all to see. We must feed the Spirit in us to win the war. Verses 22-23 speak of the fruit of the Spirit. Notice that fruit is not plural. One can’t just pick and choose which he want to have. We must have them all. They are love. Love is the characteristic word of Christianity. Love can only be known by its action. 1 Cor. 13:8 says “Love never fails.” Joy – “to abound more exceed-ingly.” John 15: 11b Jesus said “I am come that your joy may be full.” Peace – “a harmonious relationship between men.” Patience or long-suffering – “to bear with”; (thank God for His patience and long-suffer-ing toward us). Kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. All these char-acteristics are noticeable in a Spirit-filled Christian. How do we feed the Spirit? Bible study, much prayer, going to a good Bible-believing, Bible-preach-ing church, fellowship-ping with other Spirit-filled Christians. One cannot alienate themselves from God’s Word, prayers to God, and God’s people and live the Spirit-filled life. Baptism is the symbol of putting to death the old man and being raised a new man to walk in the Spirit. Verse 25 says “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” We wish all of you the very best God has to offer in the New Year. We also from the bottom of our hearts thank all those who make it possible for us to have this weekly Bible study article. Our prayer is that you abound in the wonderful grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Dec. 29RevivalWord in Power Outreach Ministry, 5888 NW HWY 41, will be host-ing a revival on Sunday, Dec. 29 and Monday, Dec. 30 at 7 p.m. The event will close on Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 10 p.m. Contact Glorai Jordan at 386-288-5958 for more.Dec. 31Gospel nightThe Long Branch Congregational Methodist Church locat-ed on County Road 135 in White Springs will be hosting a Gospel Singing Watch-night service on Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 7 p.m. The group 2nd Crossing will be the guest singers.

Announcement Church Calendar God’s New Year desire for all of us Hugh Sherrillems-hugh43@comcast.net Q Hugh Sherrill is an ordained minister presently serving at Philippi Baptist Church. BIBLE STUDIES Hold onto your endurance like JobJames, in his epistle, is telling his readers that they need to be patient until the Lord comes again (1:7). He says they need to strengthen their hearts (1:8), to look at the lives of the prophets and use them as examples as to how to deal with all the suffering which a person must endure while being a follower of Jesus (1:10). James says all of these were blessed. The last example James uses is the example of Job and how ulti-mately God had compassion and mercy upon Job. When we consider the events in the life of Job, one of the first things we real-ize is that Job did not know the source of the tragedy which occurred in his life. His friends thought it was because he had been disobedient to God, but that was not true. Job has a lot of questions, but he never lost his faith in God. Even though he did not under-stand all the whys of what was happening to him, Job endured until the end. As we live the Christian life, sometimes it is very hard for us to continue living for God because of all the things which are happening to us. We often think, “Why is God punish-ing me?” We sometimes say, “Why are all these horrible things happening to me?” We must remember Job and think, “Maybe this is the working of Satan and I just need to endure until the end. Things will be better when this is all over.” Another way that we can endure like Job is to have his attitude and remember that we need to take the good with the bad. Life is not always going to be a bed of roses. Life is going to have some “thorny” moments. There will be both times of trials as well as periods of enjoyment. The amount of confidence Job had in God is remarkable. Job lived as a contemporary of Abraham and so there was not as much history of God deal-ing with mankind as we have today. Even with such a small amount of evidence to build one’s faith, Job was extremely convinced that he must remain faithful to God! Job endured even when his friends were discouraging him as tragedy struck his family, his income and his health. Job even endured when his wife, possibly the most important person to him, was telling him to “give up.” He endured until the end. What an example for us! We also must endure like Job. How God “rewarded” Job is outstanding. He had more at the end of his life than he had before the tragedy hap-pened. It appears that God wanted us to see that endur-ing like Job would well be worth the effort. On several occasions in the Bible, the endurance of Job is mentioned. It is always mentioned as a compliment to him and an encouragement to the reader. So what is it going to take for us to be faithful or to have the endurance we need to live for Jesus until we die? The same attributes possessed by Job: overcoming the pressures people place upon us to quit, never giving up on our faith in God, and constantly think-ing about the “coming of the Lord.” In the grand scheme of things His return may be tomorrow or it may be another two thousand years. Regardless, if we will endure like Job, then we will have a great reward! Don’t give up. Endure like Job! BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeakcarlton_mc@msn.com Q Carlton G.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt was supposed to be a year of rebuilding for the Columbia High football team. The Tigers graduated 23 seniors in 2012 and 2013 was all about finding play-ers to replace the departed. Ronald Timmons had set a single-season rush-ing record in 2012 and the Tigers had three running back all near 1,000 yards on the ground. The only holdover from the 2012 season was Lonnie Underwood, but he gave the Tigers another year to remember. Underwood finished the season with 1,443 rushing yards, but he had a nose for finding the end zone. The junior running back fin-ished with 30 touchdowns to set the Tigers’ all-time rushing record for a single season. Underwood’s play was remarkable at times as he set the single game record for touchdowns not once, but twice during the season. The first time he broke the single-game record he didn’t even realize it until he was told after the game. “It feels great,” Underwood said. “I didn’t’ even know I broke it.” Underwood broke the record for the first time on a 19-carry performance for 146 yards against and again against Terry Parker High in only a half of play in a 63-13 win. The Tigers were off to a 3-0 start and had already knocked off state runner-up Gainesville High and Lincoln High. The win against Lincoln in Tallahassee was a monu-mental one for the Tigers’ football program. It ended a 14-year drought against the Trojans and the Tigers did it in impressive fashion with a 28-14 win. Columbia head coach Brian Allen told the team after the game that games like Lincoln were why the Tigers worked so hard as a program. “That’s what makes these wins so gratifying,” Allen said. It was especially gratifying as the Tigers didn’t quite know what they would have at that point. The defense was expected to be strong, but Columbia FILEColumbia High running back Lonnie Underwood breaks free in a game against Middleburg High last season. CHS continued on 3B

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 27 & 28, 2013 3B3BSPORTS CHS: Cap off another season with 10 wins and a playoff a ppearance Continued From Page 1Balso lost Florida State com-mit Trey Marshall in the contest. The Tigers were also replacing quarterback Jayce Barber and sophomore Jake Thomas had been solid for Columbia in the first game, but he was knocked out of the game against Lincoln as well. Quarterback Nate Taylor relieved Thomas against Lincoln and went on to lead the Tigers into the play-offs. Taylor finished the season completing 60-of-113 passes for 870 yards and nine touchdowns while only throwing three intercep-tions. Columbia came one game away from capping off an undefeated regular season, but Ed White High would spoil the run. In doing so, the Commanders also claimed the District 3-6A championship. In a road contest, the Tigers fell 34-17 against Ed White, but Columbia battled back to make the playoffs with a 9-1 record in the regular season. Columbia closed out the regular season with a 35-7 win against Suwannee High in the annual Battle for the Old Oaken Bucket. The Tigers went into Live Oak and came out with a 35-7 win against a one-loss Bulldog team to send Columbia into the playoffs on a high note. In the playoffs, the Tigers met St. Augustine High for a third-straight season and continued to take the sting out of the Yellow Jackets. Columbia started slow, but pounced on St. Augustine in the second half for a 42-24 win. Underwood carried the torch against the Yellow Jackets with three touchdowns and 200 yards rushing. The Tigers season would end in the second round, however, with Bartram Trail High knocking the Tigers off in a 29-24 upset at home. Still, it was another solid season for the Tigers as head coach Brian Allen reached 10 wins for the sec-ond consecutive season. Allen promised fans from Lake City that he would go to his death bed trying to make Columbia a win-ner after the season, but the Tigers have proven to be one in each year of Allen’s three seasons at the school. The Tigers look to be in good position for another solid unit next year with Underwood returning to lead the way. Columbia could put another group of students into the major ranks of col-lege football next season with Marshall leading the way as he will suit up for the Seminoles of Florida State. Still, the future is bright for Columbia with two quarterbacks entering their junior year, an expe-rienced offensive line, a host of returning players on defense and the school’s all-time leading touchdown maker. FILEQuarterback Nate Taylor helped lead the Tigers to a 10win season during the 2013 season. FILERoger Cray makes an interception against Lincoln High, one of the Tigers’ biggest victories of the season. Gators announce Roper as new offensive coordinatorBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE — Florida is turning to Duke’s Kurt Roper to improve the Southeastern Conference’s worst offense. Coach Will Muschamp is counting on Roper’s previ-ous success in the league and his experience with an up-tempo scheme to get it done. Muschamp announced Roper’s hire Thursday, three days after he agreed to take the job. “He has a diverse, uptempo background on offense and does a good job of adapting to what the play-ers do best,” Muschamp said. “The most important thing, though, is he has always remained balanced. He has had success calling plays in the SEC and has tutored three NFL quarter-backs. He has had players produce at every offensive position and he is one of the most well-respected coach-es in the country.” Roper is leaving the same position at Duke. He also was an assistant head coach with the Blue Devils. Roper spent hours interviewing for the job with Muschamp on Monday. He will remain with Duke through the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Tuesday night. “I feel like this was the right situation for me and my family at the right time,” Roper said on a conference call with reporters. “It’s obviously a great university that has a great tradition, and I look forward to trying to add to that.” The Gators (4-8) are coming off their first los-ing season since 1979. Muschamp wants to over-haul the offense after three consecutive years ranked worse than 100th nationally in total yards. Muschamp fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis less than 24 hours after the sea-son ended. Duke coach David Cutcliffe said Roper’s coach-ing style includes “intensity, tempo and quality of repeti-tion.” “From the minute they hit the field, it’s going to be intense,” Cutcliffe said. “I wouldn’t call him a laid-back football coach by any stretch of the imagination. It’s going to be what we call treat the ground like a hot stove. If you hit the ground, you better get up running. And you know by the time they get on the field until they get off, they’re going to be moving and getting a bunch of quality reps so I would call it very intense.” An 18-year coaching veteran, Roper spent six sea-sons as Duke’s offensive coordinator. He has 14 years of experience coach-ing quarterbacks, includ-ing working with NFL quarterbacks Eli Manning (N.Y. Giants), Sean Renfree (Atlanta Falcons) and Thaddeus Lewis (Buffalo Bills). He inherits an offense that features mobile quar-terback Jeff Driskel and plenty of running back depth, but also includes a woeful offensive line and few playmakers on the perimeter. “I think the biggest thing is you got to find out the strengths of your quarter-back and the strengths of your offensive line,” Roper said. “Once you find those strengths, then you can start putting together what you’re going to start hang-ing your hat on offensively. Then the other five players you have to find out who can make something hap-pen with the football. If it’s running backs, if it’s tight end or if it’s wide receiv-ers, then you try to find the way to get those guys the football and you create per-sonnel or formations based on that. “I think there’s a reason for tempo in games that obviously causes defenses problems, but we’ll never sacrifice tempo over execu-tion. We want to play fast, but we want to play smart and take care of the football and those types of things.” Muschamp’s next offensive coordinator had been considered the most impor-tant hire in his tenure, a choice that surely will impact whether the head coach sticks around beyond 2014. If Florida doesn’t show significant improvement in Muschamp’s fourth year — he is 22-16 through three seasons — athletic director Jeremy Foley almost cer-tainly will clean house. Roper followed Cutcliffe to Duke in 2008 from Tennessee and helped rebuild the Blue Devils from one of the nation’s worst power-conference programs to the champions of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division. Roper was a finalist this year for the Broyles Award, given to the nation’s top assistant coach. The offen-sive coordinator helped the 22nd-ranked Blue Devils (10-3) set a school record for wins. Before joining Duke, Roper coached at three SEC schools — Tennessee (2006-07), Kentucky (2005) and Mississippi with Cutcliffe (1999-2004). He coached quarterbacks at Kentucky and Ole Miss, and run-ning backs at Tennessee before arriving in Durham, N.C. Dolphins can still make playoffsAssociated PressDAVIE — Reeling from their worst loss of the year, the Miami Dolphins can still make the playoffs. Whether they deserve to is open for debate. Miami can clinch the AFC’s final wild-card berth Sunday with a little help and a win over the New York Jets. But a 19-0 loss at Buffalo cost the Dolphins control of their destiny. “There’s no question we laid an egg as a team, — coaches, players, every-body,” offensive coordina-tor Mike Sherman said. On a cold, windy, rainy afternoon, the Dolphins hardly looked like a team worthy of playing in January. “The problems that popped up in the game and things that need to be fixed, we have to address,” coach Joe Philbin said. “We have to play our best game of the year. It’s a great way for us to finish the regular season. We’ve got a great opportunity.”FILEColumbia High running back Lonnie Underwood led the way for the Tigers with 30 rushing touchdowns in 2013.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 27-28, 2013 DEAR ABBY: I live in a fairly well-to-do neighborhood on a cul-de-sac. There has been an increase in the traffic on my street, and I suspect it’s because a neighbor’s adult son has been selling drugs. Most of the cars are driven by young people who park for five to 10 minutes at the most, and all of them walk around to the back of the house. Hypodermic needles have been found in the street. Should I talk to the police and risk alienating my neighbors, or should I keep quiet because I have no definite proof? I don’t think the parents would believe me if I told them; they seem to think their child can do no wrong. Also, if I do file a police report and they find out, I’m afraid they will retali-ate. Help! — NOT SURE WHAT TO DO DEAR NOT SURE: Don’t keep quiet. It’s important that the police be notified before the problem becomes worse. Call your local anony-mous tip line and report where you have seen the suspicious activity and the needles. No personal information from you will be asked, and your privacy will be protected.Long-ago love may mean “dad” DEAR ABBY: I had some time to think over the summer, and came to the realization that a baby my girlfriend had almost 30 years ago may be my daughter. “Sally” and I had a very intense, but short-lived relationship that blew up. About a year later we met again for lunch at the behest of a mutual friend. I don’t remember the details, but I do remember searching for an accurate way to compliment her. Because she had put on weight, the best I could come up with was “you look good.” She didn’t hit me, but the conversation went downhill from there. Sally mentioned as we were parting that she had given birth to a daughter. I haven’t heard from her since. I don’t want to create problems for anybody, but I’m curious. I’m hap-pily married and plan to stay that way. At the same time, I’d welcome having a daughter. I have thought about sending cheek swabs and a check-off DNA test to the child along with a note suggesting she send our samples in for testing. But that could destroy what-ever story she may have grown up with. I’m at a loss here. I could use some advice from an outside authority. What do you think I should do? — BLOCKHEAD IN CALIFORNIA DEAR B.H.: It’s been 30 years. The “child” is a woman now. Before you risk starting WWIII, why not contact the mother and ask if you are her daugh-ter’s father, because it’s possible that you AREN’T.20-year-old girl wants a date DEAR ABBY: I’m 20 years old and have never dated anyone. I have a lot of friends and do well in school and at work, and I try to be a good, kind, friendly person. What can I do to make myself datable? Am I missing some crucial step in how to become a girlfriend? — OLD MAID IN ST. LOUIS DEAR OLD MAID: Because I have never met you in person, I can’t tell you what you might be doing that relegates you to the “only as a friend” cat-egory. However, some of your guy friends might be able to tell you. And you should also solicit some tips from your girlfriends.Teen won’t leave abusive home DEAR ABBY: Last week, my best friend, “Lana,” tried to kill herself. I’m not sure anyone else knows. Her brother beats her, and her mom yells at her for being “ungrateful” when she asks to spend a night elsewhere. My family has offered several times to let Lana live with us, as have her grandpar-ents. After this week, I have begged her to. She still refuses. Her plan is to move in with her boyfriend when she turns 18 in a few months. He’s a good guy, but I don’t think it will be good for her. I know they always say to tell an adult about a situation like this one, but Lana claims she’s not strong enough to actually leave before then -and she kept a secret of mine almost as big. I’m scared and don’t know what to do. I love Lana and I know doing the wrong thing could end up with her dead. — TERRIFIED BFF IN TENNESSEE DEAR TERRIFIED: If Lana tried to kill herself because of what’s happen-ing at home, she can no longer remain there. Talk to her again. Moving in with her boyfriend is not the answer. It could be jumping from the frying pan into the fire. If she lives with him under these circumstances, she will be emotionally and financially dependent, and it’s not a healthy way to start a rela-tionship. Point out that if she lives with her grandpar-ents -who understand how dysfunctional her home life has been -or your family, she will be in a safe place while she considers her options about finding a job or get-ting more education. Once she’s independent, she will be in a stronger posi-tion to make wise deci-sions about her future.Boyfriend compares new with the old DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend lost the “love of his life” to cancer two years ago. He talks about her and their life together end-lessly. He says he wants to build a new life with me, but he constantly criticizes me because “she would handle the situation bet-ter.” Abby, the woman was a physician from a wealthy family. I’m a blue-collar worker who single-par-ented two children. My parents passed away 20 years ago. Is there any hope for a future with him? Can I ever feel com-fortable being who I am -not the ghost he wants me to be? — BLUE-COLLAR LOVER DEAR LOVER: As long as your boyfriend contin-ues to compare you unfa-vorably with his lost love, the answer is no. Have you told him how it makes you feel when he does it? If you haven’t, speak up! And when you do, suggest he find a grief support group, where he can talk and talk until he works through his loss better than he has. Until he does, you’ll never be happy. Competing with a ghost is a fight you can’t win. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Stay put. Reflect on the year gone by and make mental adjustments that will lead to productiv-ity and fulfillment. Don’t overreact or overindulge to avoid what needs to be done to reach your goals.
