Shelter: Dog fighting common in Columbia FAST FACTS
Two pit bulls seized


Several dogs have
been treated for
fighting injuries.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
Lake City Animal Shelter
Director Margaret Smith said


Friday that dog fighting is
common in the Columbia
County area, and the shelter
has treated several dogs that
were victims to dog fighting
incidents.
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee also confirmed Friday
that thei-arena disassembled a
week ago was used at least four


times for dog fighting.
Smith confirmed Friday
that two pit bulls that were
confiscated by law enforce-
ment on Dec. 15 are being
housed at the Lake 'City
Animal Shelter and they are
"doing fine," but likely would
not be housed at the facility
for much longer.


"It's very difficult to house
fighting pit bulls because of the
risk included," said Terry
Marques, assistant director of
the, shelter. He said the dogs
are normally friendly toward
people, because they are
handled by a number of people
before fights he said often-
times the dogs are bathed


before fights by a competitor to
ensure their fur has not been
tainted with a type of poison.
"But they are killers for
other animals," he said. He
said the dogs normally con-
Ssider smaller animals as prey
and have to be kept separate
SHELTER continued on 3A-


authorities are said to be
doing fine
* Animal shelter director said
dog fighting is 'prevalent' in
Columbia County area
* One property owner told
authorities he was unaware
that dog fighting was being
conducted on the premises

Senate

Bill 1088

Bill deemed as
unconstitutional by
circuit court judge.

By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.comr
As of Dec. 20, 2007, Senate
Bill 1088 that was signed into
law by Gov. Charlie Crist in
May, which provides for the
establishment of five Offices
of Criminal Conflict and Civil
Regional Counsel (OCCCRC),
was deemed unconstitutional
in the Circuit Court of the
Second Judicial Circuit by
Circuit Judge P. Kevin Davey.
The lawsuit was filed by
the Florida Association of
Criminal Defense Lawyers, rep-
resented by Lake City attorney
D. Todd Doss and Gainesville
attorney Sonya Rudenstine.
'The Florida legislature
had tried to create what was
basically a hybrid type of the
public defenders office," Doss
said. 'They called it a public
defenders office because
under Florida statutes,, the
county is obligated to pay
for many of the expenses, like
the lease, the equipment,
Internet access and telecom-
munications equipment."
The creation of these five
offices would have ultimately
transferred a significant amount
of cost from the cash-strapped
state to the equally cash-strapped
counties, .which includes
Columbia County among others.
The offices were to be locat-
ed within the geographical
boundaries of each of the five
district courts of appeal.
The State of Florida is divid-
ed into 20 Judicial Circuits
composed of one or more
counties. Columbia County is
. within the First District, Third
Judicial Circuit.

Separate wrecks injure 2


Pholos by JASON MATTHEW WALKERILake Cit F)epurt


Staff reports
Two people were injured in two
separate wrecks inr Lake City on Friday,
and one person was flown to Gainesville
to receive emergency medical treatment.
At approximately 11:15 a.m. Friday, a
black Chevrolet SUV was traveling east
on U.S. Highway 90 and collided with a
Buick sedan that was attempting to cross
the roadway near the Sav-A-Lot food
store, according to Lake City Police
Department officials.
LCPD units, along with Lake City Fire
Department and Columbia County EMS
officials, responded to the scene and
worked for almost half-an-hour to remove
the driver of the Buick from the vehicle.
The driver was taken to Shands Lake
Shore helipad and flown to Shands at the
University of Florida in Gainesville for
treatment. No other information was
available from the Lake City Police
Department Friday afternoon.
The Chevrolet SUV traveled a few
hundred feet and jumped the sidewalk on
the northbound side of the road before it
came to a stop. It was unclear if the
driver of the SUV suffered any serious
injuries in the crash.
A few hours later, another wreck
occurred on U.S. Highway 90 near
Northeast Vickers Terrace. According to
LCPD officials, the female driver of a
2008 Nissan truck was traveling west on
the roadway and swerved to miss a dog
scampering across the road. She
traveled onto the sidewalk and struck a
cement light post, which crumbled and
collapsed.
The severity of her injuries was
unclear Friday afternoon.
Names of the drivers in the wrecks
were not available from LCPD on Friday.
No further information was available.


Fireworks

mixing

leads to

explosion

Nineteen-year-old
suffered injuries to.
his legs in mishap.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
A Lake City teenager was
injured Friday morning after
an attempt to mix the contents
of several firecrackers resulted
in an explosion.
Sean Everett Davidson, 19,
of Lake City, suffered injuries
to his legs and was treated
at a local hospital, according
to reports.
According to the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office, 911
dispatch received a call just
before noon alerting them to
an explosion near Brim Street,
off County Road 252.
Sheriff's deputies arrived on
scene shortly thereafter and
discovered that Brim had
apparently taken a number of
firecrackers, cut them open,
removed the powder from each
of them and had combined it in
a small brass tube, only about
.half an inch in length..
Columbia County Sheriff
Bill Gootee said that when
Davidson attempted to screw
the cap onto the brass tube
that contained the mixed pow-
der, the contents ignited and
exploded, causing injuries to,
one of Davidson's knees.
It was unclear the severity
of the injuries, but Gootee said
he didn't think they were too
serious.
As a precaution, the Alachua
County Sheriffs Office bomb
squad was called in and
a warrant was obtained to inves-
tigate Davidson's room at his
residence.
'There was nothing found in
there other than some fire-
crackers and watches, nothing
that would appear to be used to
build a bomb or anything of any
real concern that would alarm
us in any way," Gootee said.

SHELTER: Several dogs being treated


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter

Altrusa provides a boost
Altrusa International, Inc. of Lake City has donated $30,400 to the Lifestyle Enrichment Center to help
build a library and computer room. The money was raised from the Altrusa's 17th annual gala that took
place Oct. 14. Pictured are: (from left) Sherri Cole, gala chair; Dr. Debra Griffin, selection committee
chair; Deborah Freeman, director of Columbia County Senior Services; Brandy Watson, president of
Altrusa; and Margaret Collins, gala co-chair.

from other animals at the
shelter.
Smith said they have had
fighting dogs at the shelter
before and said dog fighting in
the area is "prevalent" and the
shelter has responded to dog
fights in downtown Lake City
before.
"Florida is notorious for its
dog fighting," Smith said.
"It's a shame they were
only able to save two dogs,"
Marques said.
Law enforcement officials
continue to investigate the
ring that was broken up in
Columbia City on Dec. 15 at
1345 Nautilus Road. Deputies
responded after a tip alerted
them to possible dog fights
and when officers arrived,


they were forced to take eva-
sive action to avoid more than
20 fleeing vehicles.
Two vehicles were stopped
and two men were arrested.
Gootee said that, according
to statements from area resi-
dents, this may have been the
fourth dog fight at this location.
"We don't know how many
months apart they may have
been, but this wasn't an every
weekend thing," he said. "It's
more like a circuit, where
they're one place one weekend
and another place the next."
Gootee confirmed that he
had spoken with the owner of
the property, Wayne Gainer,
who told Gootee that he was
unaware of the dog fighting
occurring on his property.


Gainer was unavailable for
comment as he was not listed
in the phone book.
He said the arena where the
dog fighting was occurring
was a crudely constructed
20 feet by 20 feet ring that
was lit by lights nailed to
boards. Investigation revealed
that several fights potentially
were scheduled to occur
that day but posted lookout
men spotted deputies before'
they arrived and alerted
those taking part in the dog
fighting, relayed the informa-
tion and caused suspects to.
flee the area. ';"
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is assisting'
in the investigation.

Because the OCCCRCs are
public defender offices by a
different name, they and
their directors must conform
to the constitutional provision
addressing such offices, name-
ly Article V, Section 18 of
Florida's Constitution.
"It's very specific within the
Florida constitution the way a
public defenders office is to be
created, the constitution says
public defenders must be
elected, Doss said.
'The constitution also says
that the public defender must
reside in the circuit in which
he or she represents the
legislature chose not to do
that," Doss said.
"They created it much like
the district court of appeals in
that there was five districts; for
instance, Jeff Lewis who was
appointed Regional Counsel of
the First District has 32 counties
he represents, there is no way
he can live in every county."
Lewis was appointed (not
constitutionally elected by the
people) by the Governor and
was sent to Columbia County
to set up a regional office with
space provided by and expens-
es paid for by Columbia
County taxpayers.
"At this stage the county has
not entered into a lease for
these services as was required
by SB' 1088, so we will
hold everything in abeyance

until further notice," County
Manager Dale Williams said,
when he learned of Thursday's
judgment.
The reason the state tried
this tactic of creating hybrid
public defender offices was
based strictly on saving money.
"They tried to do it on the
cheap by only paying the
head's of the district offices
$80,000," Doss said. "The
problem is they have to hire
people who are qualified to
represent in capital cases, for
example.
"There are a lot of specific
requirements to represent
someone in a death penalty
case. Individuals who can
meet those requirements have
been attorney's for awhile and
they are talented people who
can demand much more in
salary than what the state is
willing to pay.
"Just to illustrate how cheap
that is, Lewis was scheduled to


MUTUAL
FUNDS


oversee 74 attorneys and
100 staff members because he
wanted to establish a presence
in each of the 32 counties in
the First District."
The only defense the state
could muster would be to
acknowledge that the conflict
counsel officers are not public
defenders according to the cqn-
stitution, but if state take that
position, it creates an enormous
funding shortfall because the
counties will not be obligated to
provide facilities, services,
infrastructure and equipment,
which could add an extra
$20 million to the cost of these
services created to save money,
according to Russell Smith,
president of the FACDL.
"After this ruling, the
Governor and the legislature
will now have to revisit this
issue," Doss said. "Because of
Judge Davey's ruling, every-
thing now grinds to a halt."

Fire station


good sign


of county's


progress

Columbia County's plan to
build a new fire station on
Racetrack Road south of
Lake City is a long-overdue
move to boost fire protection
in the southern and southeastern
portion of Columbia County.
The big development with this new
building will be the fact that the
development plan calls for three
firefighters to be stationed at the
building.
The facility will have room for five
bays which will allow space for
expansion if more equipment is needed
to handle any growth this area of the
county may see in the future.
The Racetrack Road location is close
to U.S. Highway 441 South, which gives
it easy access to several main
thoroughfares in the vicinity.
The county will spend approximately
$800,000 on this new fire station, but it
is in an area that currently has a strong
volunteer presence that needs
resources and new equipment to make
it more efficient Some of the volunteer
firefighters live along the U.S. 441
corridor and respond to emergencies
from Watermelon Park, Ellisville and
other nearby areas. It's time they have
a new station and top-notch equipment
with which to do their jobs.
The Columbia County Fire
Department is in its fledgling stages.
Under the guidance of Chief Tres
Atkinson, the department continues to
take forward steps that will help serve
and protect our residents.
We salute this fire department effort
and hope this progress continues._

COMMENTARY


'Please, don't bury me'


ow would it be if I
were killed in an
automobile
accident? It
happened so fast. I
didn't see it coming. Agony
claws my mind. I am listed as
a statistic. When I first got
here I felt very much alone. I
was overwhelmed with grief. I
felt unreal as if I were drifting.
How could I die? I'm just a
teenager. I've only been
driving a year now. There is
no one here to sympathize
with me. I was only one of
others that were as badly
mangled as mine. I was given
.a number and the tag was put
on my big toe. The I.D. just
said "traffic fatality."
The day I died was an
ordinary school day. How I
wished I had taken the bus. ...
But I was too cool for the
bus. I remembered how I
wheedled the car out of Mom.
"Special favor" I pleaded. "All
the kids drive."
When the 2:30 bell rang, I
threw my books in the locker.
I was free until 8:30 tomorrow
morning. The parking lot, my
own car, my own boss -
FREE! It doesn't matter how
the accident happened, or who
was right or who was wrong. I
was going to fast, just goofing
off, taking crazy chances,
laughing, joking with myself
and just thinking how
wonderful it is to be free.
The last thing I
remembered, passing a
tweedy old lady who seemed
to be going awfully slow and
then a deafening crash a
terrific jolt, glass and steel
flying everywhere. My whole'
body seemed to be turning
inside out. I heard myself
scream; people running about.
Suddenly I awakened. It
was very quiet. A police
officer was standing over me.
Then I saw the medics. My
body was mangled. I was
saturated with blood. Pieces of
jagged glass had cut me all
over. I couldn't feel anything.
"Hey, don't pull that sheet
over my head. I can't be dead,

I'm only 17! I got a date
tonight. I'm supposed to grow
up and have a wonderful life.
I haven't lived yet I can't be
dead!"
Later I was placed in a
sliding vault. My folks came to
identify me. Why did they
have to see me like this? Why
did I have to look at Mom?
Dad looked like an old man.
;H told the .officer in charge,
"Yes, he's our son." The last
sound I heard was Mom
sobbing, the vault shutting.
The funeral was weird. I
had been to a couple before,
but nothing like this. Relatives
and friends passed by the
casket, one by one. Football
players man, I was on the
team. They looked at me with
the saddest eyes that I had
ever seen. Some of my
buddies were crying. A few
of the girls touched my hand
and sobbed as they were
taken away.
"Please, somebody wake me
up. It has to be a horrific
nightmare. I can't bear to see
Mon and Dad all broke up.
My grades were good. I
planned t go to college. My
future looked bright. My
grandparents were so broken
up they could hardly walk. My
brother and sister were like
zombies. In a daze -
everybody they moved like
robots, I can't believe it.
"Please don't bury me. I'm
not dead. I have a lot of living
to do. I want to laugh, sing,
run again. The homecoming
football game is in two weeks.
I gotta be there. Please don't
put me in the ground. I
promise, if you will give me
just one more chance, God, I'll


be the most careful driver in
the world. All I want is one
more chance.,
"Please God, I'm only 17."
We lived in a city north of
Athens, Ga. for many years. It
was on a Christmas Day that
one of the high school boys
was given a high-powered,
brand new Corvette. He was a.
good kid and came from a
wealthy home. When we were
his age we would have
thought we had died and gone
to heaven with a new bicycle.
He was just 17 and on
Christmas night he and a
close friend met at a lonely
road called "Wildcat."
His friend had a new Chevy
sports model. They sat side by
side with engines roaring. Just
a quarter of a mile would be
the distance. They audibly
counted down to the starting
number, and with engines on
fire they roared away side by
side. They were to race to the
top of a small hill and, at full
speed, they met an oncoming
dump truck.
They split, one going to the
right and the other to the left.
The one to the right flew off
the road and spilled into heavy
pasture with light trees. He
survived. The one to the left
went airborne and came
crashing down to hit the
concrete abasement to allow
water to pass under the road.
The teenage driver was killed
instantly.
I saw the wreck a few days
later. It had been lifted to a
flatbed and I stood there just
stunned. It was a large ball of
metal. Unless you knew it had
been a car you would have
wondered what it was. It was
completely crushed. I never
wrote the column that came to
mind. 'Today, I bought my
son his coffin." Some titles are
just too harsh.
That one was one of them.

Christmas

Jt is the tradition in some American
families to read Clement Clarke
Moore's charming seasonal poem
'Twas the Night Before Christmas"
every Christmas Eve.
My own two children were involved in this
lovely ritual for many years until they grew a
little old for the task to the point where they
were rebelling and threatening to join biker
gangs. As it happens, the tradition had run its
course anyway and now the formal recitation is
merely a happy memory for me every Dec. 24.
Nevertheless, the poem always struck me as
a bit odd. Not to give voice to my inner Grinch,
but I always wondered whether laws were
being broken in the spectacular arrival of St
Nicholas. At the very least, the settling of
reindeers on roofs no matter how tiny the
coursers and miniature the sleigh surely
offended some statute regarding livestock.
To get to the
bottom of it, I
believe the TV
series "CSI"
should do a
special show.
As you
know, "CSI" -
metastasized Reg Henry
into "CSI: NY' nry
and "CSMiami.N' rhenry@post-gozette.com
What we really need is a "CSI: Yuletide" to
find out what really happened on that famous
night before Christmas, when all through the
house, not a creature was stirring, not even a
mouse. (And what a relief that there was no
rodent activity.) Perhaps the investigators on
"Cold Case" would be better suited to the job.
After all, the alleged crime, if such it was, first
came to the public's attention in 1823.
Now, it may be that things were more
relaxed back then and they didn't have as
many laws. Our modern mistake is that we
elect so many lawyers to become lawmakers
that laws multiply like rabbits. We pretend to
be surprised by this, yet the same result
naturally occurs when pet rabbit owners add
more bunnies to their hutch.
But I have to think the authorities in a
straight-laced era would have objected to "the
moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow."
The description suggests that someone had
been building a snowwoman out on the lawn
(where there arose such a clatter) and a
fairly voluptuous one at that. Thank goodness
the kiddies never noticed.
I also do not know about the propriety of a
right jolly old elf coming down a chimney. In
our day, OSHA regulations would certainly be
offended. The greater concern is that, even if
the stockings had been hung by the chimney
with care, did this constitute an invitation or
was this a home invasion?
Further, I am concerned that St. Nick may
have broken local prohibitions against
speeding and making excessive noise. If you
recall, "More rapid than eagles his coursers
they came," and all that "Now Dasher! now,
Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen! ..." was none
too considerate of the neighbors.
That shouting may be explained by St.
Nick's demeanor. Not only were his clothes
"all tarnished with ashes and soot," but also
"His eyes how they twinkled! his dimples
how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his
nose like a cherry!"
Here we have probable cause for
concluding that St. Nick had imbibed a little
too much Christmas cheer on the trip. If he
were stopped by the police today, he would be
pulled over and asked to step outside the
sleigh and keep his gloves where the officer
could see them.
But the indictment against St. Nick gets
worse: "The stump of a pipe he held tight in his
teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like
a wreath." Not only was he driving around
spreading secondhand smoke near children, he
was "chubby and plump," a terrible crime today
to which I plead seasonally guilty.
To review: St. Nicholas appears to have
illegally parked reindeer on roofs and let them
roam without the necessary permits, been seen
in the vicinity of an indecent lawn display, had
driven excessively fast while seemingly several
hot toddies over the limit, made a noise and
clutter beyond the accepted decibel range,
possibly invaded a household and was a fat
smoker. Not to mention that, coming from the


North Pole, he might have been an illegal alien.
I am not saying he was guilty of anything,
OK? I am just saying that a "CSI" or "Cold
Case" team should investigate to clear up
lingering questions. I am also saying, like he
did 'ere he drove out of sight, "Happy
Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."

BIBLICAL MEDITATION


Carlton McPeak
carlton_mc@msn.com

Repentance:
A reaction
to preaching
E very student of
the Bible,
regardless of their
level of learning,
has heard of the
story of Jonah and the big
fish. Sermons have been
preached on how Jonah
unsuccessfully tried to
run from his God-given
assignment.
However, how much time
have we spent meditating on
the preaching of Jonah and
the Assyrian's reaction to his
preaching?
Preaching has always been
God's method to inform
people of His impending
destruction. Think of Noah
and his preaching. Think of
other prophets such as
Nathan, Isaiah and Jeremiah.
The New Testament speaks
of the preaching of John the
Baptist, Jesus, Stephen, Peter
and Paul.
Preaching has also been
used to inform people how
to avoid the impending
destruction, as is seen with
the people of Nineveh. In
every time era, God has
required some basic things
from people. He wants them
to listen to His spokesmen.
He wants them to believe
what the spokesperson said.
He wants them to change
from their wicked deeds. He
wants them to follow any
instructions He may give to
them so they can be saved
from the impending
destruction.
After hearing Jonah
preach that their city was
going to be destroyed, the
Assyrians believed in God.
This was followed by some
outward signs of repentance;
namely they fasted and put
on sackcloth (Jonah 3:5). The
king even repented and
issued a proclamation
decreeing how the people
should act with the hopes
God would not destroy them
(3:7-9). They called "on God
earnestly" (3:8). They turned
"from their wicked ways: (3:10).
Let us pause to
contemplate this action of
"repentance." Repentance
has been defined as the
action of turning. In spiritual
matters, God wants us to
"turn" from wickedness to
righteousness. He wants us
to repent from going away
from Him to going toward
Him. Before we will repent,
we must be informed that we ,
are traveling in the wrong
direction. We must be given
reasons) why we must make
a turn. The reasons) must
overpower our desire to
continue in the same
direction. We must know that
the person threatening the
destruction is able to carry
out the threat
As we think on each of
these reactions, we must be
impressed with the fact that
all of this came about
because of the preaching of
Jonah. The message of Jonah
is summarized and we are
not privileged to everything
that he said. We can con-
clude from the repentance of
the people that his preaching
was very effective.
When we hear
preaching today like that of
Jonah, may we all be like the
Assyrians and apply the
message to our lives. God
help preachers to preach
like Jonah!

IMP ".Wo - , .i...ii 1.


A gas card would
make a great
Christmas gift
this year. Or
maybe a:
hybrid car, whichever is
less expensive.
Some gifts, though,
money cannot buy. For
those, we will just have to
combine our wishing
powers and hope Santa
gets the memo.
My first wish is for a
little of that football magic
to get caught in the wind
and spread just a little,
mind you toward Miami
and Tallahassee.
I grew up in a time when
it seemed like every other
year Florida, Florida State
or Miami was winning a
championship. Since I
started getting my UF
alumni magazines, though,
I have had to methodically
collect and hide old
pictures of myself in FSU
and Miami T-shirts each
time I visit my parents'
house. But that won't stop
me from quietly pulling for
the old, old ball coach and
the 'Canes of yesteryear on
all but a few Saturdays.
It's always nice to
celebrate the state, not just
the school. Besides,
reliving football in Florida
during the 1990s is a lot
better than rehashing the
fashion or playing the
music of the era.
My second wish is for
another successful high
school football season.
There is not enough
room in the sports section
to tell you how much fun it
was to witness the
excitement that
surrounded Fort White
High this season, and
watching them go from slim
losses to convincing wins
over the course of a few
months made all the drives
to Fort White worth it.
A fresh face soon will
take over where Danny
Green left off at Columbia
High, and it will be
interesting to see how the
new coach will utilize the
Tigers' strong group of
young players. Hopefully, it
won't be too long before
CHS can put up another
plank under the scoreboard.
Finally, I'd love to see the
youth sports community
continue to grow.
I've had more than my
fair share of days spent in
the scorching sun at Babe
Ruth Baseball tournaments,
and I remember braving
what I swore were Arctic
winds while doing a story
about a club soccer team.
And Lake City even got its
very first Babe Ruth
baseball state title this year,
but I managed to escape
the elements that time.
Of course, I can't have
my first two wishes without
this one. The kids I
watched play in the
Memorial Bowl in
November will be stocking
the CHS and Fort White
football teams. And
hopefully those kids will
soon be stocking our local
Division I programs in
every sport.

Tigers roll over 'Cats
Boys beat Baker
County, girls knock
off Eastside High. n


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityrepbrter.com
After eight games in
18 days, Columbia High
basketball got a week of rest
and it showed in a 76-47
blitzing of visiting Baker
County High on Friday.
Columbia roared out to
leads of 6-2 and 13-2 in the
first quarter, as Wildcats
coach Charles Ruise called
two time outs. It didn't slow
down the Tigers, who led
30-9 at the end of the first
quarter.
Julio Viens made the most
of his first start with
three points off offensive
rebounds. Dont'ae Davis
scored 11 points early in the
quarter and Ian Benjamin
knocked down a pair of
3-pointers and two free
throws. Kenny Williams
finally got in on the action and
scored eight of Columbia's
final 10 points.
The Tigers kept it up in the
second quarter with Williams
scoring eight points and Davis
scoring five. Joe Bradshaw
popped a pair of baskets. Paul
Hollie hit a trey and Ryan Bell
added a bucket.
Columbia clamped on the
full-court press and it worked
as planned, with the halftime
lead 50-20.
'The effort is always there
and we actually executed
tonight," CHS head coach
Trey Hosford said. "The guys
were playing smart rotating
to the right spots and knowing
when and where to trap. That
first half was a demonstration
of what they can do."
Davis had four steals that
he turned into points in the
first half.
'The time they touch the

said. "If you force him one
way and he has to keep


turning diagonally, he will quarter, Williams nailed a

Steve Spurrier called it the
year of the Gator.
The Associated Press called it
the No. 4 sports story of the
year on Friday.
The Gators' dual-sport
supremacy in 2007 came in
fourth in Story of the Year
voting, and was the only
scandal-less event in the top
five.
Barry Bonds' allegedly
tainted home run record was
voted the biggest story of the
year with a commanding
100 first-place votes; disgraced
Atlanta Falcons quarterback
Michael Vick took the No. 2
spot when he pleaded guilty to
federal dogfighting charges;
and NBA referee Tim
Donaghy earned third after
pleading guilty to federal
charges and was accused of
betting on games he
officiated.
The Gators' BCS football
and NCAA basketball
championship victories, both
against Ohio State teams,
came in fourth with 545 votes
and two nods for first place.

GATORS: Free Tebow posters in January


Continued From Page 1B
week of the football season,
Olympic sprinter Marion
Jones admitting to using
steroids and later being forced
to relinquish, five medals, a
strict new NFL conduct policy
put in place by Commissioner
Roger Goodell, the recent
release of the seemingly
damning Mitchell Report and
the dropping of charges in
the Duke lacrosse case also
received first-place votes.
The death of Redskins
safety Sean Taylor ranked
No. 9, between the Mitchell
Report and the Duke case,
but did not receive any
reccomendations for the top
spot.
Florida won its first-ever
NCAA Division I basketball title


on April 3, 2006, when it
defeated UCLA 73-57. The
Florida football team then
defeated Ohio State 41-14 in the
BCS Championship on Jan. 8,
making it the first time any
NCAA Division I school has
won both championships in the
same calander year.
The Florida basketball team
later became the first team to
repeat since Duke in 1992-93
when it toppled Ohio State
84-75 on April 2.

Tebow asked not to sign
Florida quarterback Tim
Tebow won't be signing a
pro contract any time soon,
and he may not even be
signing autopraphs anymore.


The University Athletic
Association, which oversees
media and public relations for
all Florida sports, posted a
request on its Web site
Thursday asking fans to give
Tebow's hand a rest.
The UAA has asked the
Heisman Trophy winner not to
fill fans' requests for autographs
because it "... compromises his
ability to handle his rigorous
schedule as a successful
student-athlete."
Fans will, however, be
offered a chance to get an
autographed poster celebrat-
ing Tebow's Heisman season.
The poster will be made
available free to the public
in mid-January, according to
the UAA.

DEAR ABBY


;~ Cook with special recipe


. means to keep it that way


DEAR ABBY: I have a spe-
cial cake recipe that I have per-
fected over the years. I get com-
pliments on it and requests for
the recipe every time I take one
to any non-family gathering.
People often ask me to make
these cakes for them for spe-
cial occasions. I always tell
them that I will need to charge
them for it because the ingredi-
ents are expensive. No one has
a problem with paying me.
I love to cook, and it gives
me pleasure to see people
enjoy something I have pre-
pared. However, because I use
my special recipe as another
source of income albeit a
small one what can I say to
thdse people who demand that
they must have the recipe?
I usually evade the question
by ignoring them, which I
know is rude, but I don't
know how to tell them "no"
without seeming offensive and
snobbish. Please help. -
FRUSTRATED COOK
DEAR FRUSTRATED:
Saying no nicely shouldn't be
difficult if you say it with a
smile. One way would be to
say, "I'm sorry I don't share
this recipe because it's a way I
can earn extra money." That's
not rude; it's the truth. Another
smiling response might be,
"Coca-Cola isn't giving away its
recipe, and neither am I!"
DEAR ABBY: I go to
church with a woman who is
generous and means well, but


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
she likes to give away her
old hand-me-down clothing.
Recently she gave me two old
dresses that fit me, but I would-
n't be caught dead in. I'm 15,
and she doesn't understand
that
I didn't want to hurt her feel-
ings, so when she asked if they
fit and if I liked them, I told her
they did and they were pretty.
My mom is planning to
donate the dresses to charity.
But now the woman is saying
she wants to give me more of
her old dresses. I don't know
how to handle this. SEC-
ONDHAND TEEN
DEAR SECONDHAND
TEEN: Your neighbor is both
kind-hearted and generous.
She also appears to be into
recycling, which is a good
thing.
Before you turn your nose
up at what she is offering,
please consider that vintage
clothing can be valuable. Some
of it is "classic" and can be
worn regardless of what the
current fad may be. Members
of the Hollywood crowd, as


well as fashionable members of
New York society, already
know this. I often see their pho-
tos in magazines wearing some
of the marvelous items they
have collected.
However, if your neighbor's
dresses are really not your
style, then you should be hon-
est and graciously tell your
neighbor that they're not for
you.
DEAR ABBY: When you're
at a restaurant, after you have
made your selection from the
menu, what should you do with
it? Do you place it closed direct-
ly in front of you, or place it
hanging halfway off the table?
- CONFUSED IN DENVER
DEAR CONFUSED: If the
server has not yet taken my
order, I close the menu and
place it beside me on the table.
(The closed menu signals to
the server that I have made my
choice.) After my order is
taken, I hand the menu to the
server.
What teens need to know
about sex, drugs, AIDS and
getting along with peers and
parents is in '"What Every Teen
Should Know." To order, send a
business-sized, self-addressed
envelope, plus check or money
order for $6 (U.S. funds) to:
Dear Abby -- Teen Booklet,
P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL
61054-0447. (Postage is
included in the price.)
