Police

tracing

.357's

origin

Gun present in
teen's shooting has
no apparent owner.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
The Lake City Police
Department is continuing its
search for the owner of a .357
caliber handgun which was
involved in the accidental
shooting of a 13-year-old
Monday. Local authorities
have enlisted the aid of the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco
and Firearms in the search.
"We have not been able to
locate the owner of the gun,
but the gun is being traced
through (the Bureau of)
Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms," said Lake City
Police Department Capt. John
DuBose.
DuBose said officers sub-
mitted the gun's serial num-
ber information and descrip-
tion to agents with the ATF
earlier in the week and he
expects the agency to take a
minimum of two weeks before
they return their findings.
"They will track the gun
back down through their
records to the original store
where the gun was sold," he
said.
DuBose said the ATF
agents will also attempt to
trace the gun to its original
owner and see if the person
still owns the gun or find out
how the gun left the original
owner's possession.
Police said the .357 caliber
handgun was involved in the
Monday evening shooting at
155 NE Fronie St., when the
gun discharged and its bullet
struck the 13-year-old in his
thigh.
Police department reports
say another juvenile was sit-
ting on the corner of a bed in
the Fronie Street home hold-
ing the handgun when the
13-year-old stepped over him
and jumped on the bed. The
gun discharged, either
because the victim jarred it or
because of the landing. When
it discharged, its bullet struck
the 13-year-old in his leg.

Columbia County will launch its free
drug discount card program on
Thursday under a program sponsored
by the National Association of Counties
(NACo).
"The Board of County Commissioners
is pleased to be able to offer this service
to the residents of the county," said
Michele Crummitt, director of human
resources/community services. "The


cards won't be available until our official
launch date, Jan. 3."
Average savings for residents without
health insurance coverage could be
reach 20 percent off retail price accord-
ing to NACo. Virtually every pharmacy
in the county accepts the card but dis-
counts vary widely depending upon the
pharmacy where the card is used.
"We're looking forward to helping the
community save money on prescrip-
tions, but I'm doubtful how much sav-
ings they will realize," said Joel
Rosenfeld, pharmacist and owner of
North Florida Pharmacy in Lake City.

Bhutto's


loss severe


to world

The assassination of former
Pakistani prime minister
Benazir Bhutto in a gun and
bomb attack on Thursday
will now threaten to send
America's crucial ally in the war against
terror reeling into violence. The killing
of Bhutto, an elegant and beautiful
figure who personified her country's
fragile hold on democracy, ought to
shake the Bush administration out of its
tolerance for the authoritarian
government of President Pervez
Musharraf.
Bhutto, 54, was educated at Harvard
and Oxford and was widely admired in
the West, even if her politics and inside
maneuvering in Pakistani politics
sometimes made her a divisive figure
there. But her return to Pakistan in
October was the occasion for a
triumphal parade of her supporters. In
an ominous precursor to Thursday's
attack, a bomb exploded on the fringes
of the October procession, killing 140
spectators. Musharraf's government
assailed the competence of Bhutto's
security arrangements and said it would
assume responsibility for her
protection.
Although the Taliban is resurging in
neighboring Afghanistan and Islamic
radicals are becoming an increasing
presence in the border regions of
Pakistan, either of which could have
mounted an attack on Bhutto, questions
will also inevitably surround the
possible incrimination of Musharraf's
own security forces that are suspected
to be infiltrated by radicals.

COMMENTARY


Are heroes born or


made of circumstance?


Rome in 1982,
we saw most
w of the great
w paintings, the
palaces, the statues of noted
figures of the past and the last
stop was in the famous
Coliseum. This colossal
amphitheater was built in the
first century by Caesar. The
initial floor was gone and
exposed the halls and various
rooms where both animal and
slaves were held. There was a
special room for Christians
who would later be butchered
to the delight of the overflow
crowd of 40,000.
Our guide led us to the very
spot to where Caesar sat. It
was here he called on
believers to recant. Thousands
of "members of the way"
made their final stand facing
the Emperor of Rome.
"You don't have to die,"
Caesar would intone. "Just
bow and say, 'Caesar is Lord."'
I wondered as I stood there,
what reaction was felt in the
heart of the Roman ruler
when the believer would begin
singing a hymn much like,
"Blessed Assurance, Jesus is
mine." I could see the Ruler
shift backward at the
believer's faith and courage as
he faced certain death. Caesar
had it all: palaces, gold,
chariots and army. He had
everything, but what stood
before him: the simple faith of
a believer. He would later
fiddle while the City on Seven
Hills burned. John wrote, "But
be thou faithful unto death
and I shall give you a crown of
life." (Revelation 2:10)
It was Jan. 13, 1982, when
Air Florida flight 90 went
down in the frozen Potomac
River.' A number were rescued
but one remained. She was a
flight attendant and had no
strength to hold to the buoy
that lay within her grasp. The
helicopter camera man
zoomed in and pictured her
face just beneath the water as
she drifted along; arms
outstretched, unconscious,
drowning.
The banks were lined with
people, some pointing, and

some crying. The
professionals were there:
policemen, fireman, first
responders, watching and just
standing by. It was Lenny
Skutnik that dove into the
broken ice, swimming with a
crawl stroke and strong flutter
kick, to wrap his arms around
the flight attendant and bring
her safely to the shore. Later
he denied the part of being a
"hero." His explanation was
simple: "She was drowning
and so I went and got her."
Later, in a joint meeting of
Congress, President Reagan
related the event and asked
Lenny to stand. He rose to the
thunderous applause.
President Reagan stood tall
and straight and saluted him.
Are heroes born or are they
just made? Perhaps heroes are
a special breed, but I don't
really think so. They are
decent people who are
humble and bold and
honorable, and do courageous
things when put under
extreme pressures.
Chuck Linberg, (not to be
confused with the famous
aviator) was a Marine during
World War II, and only with
the past few years has the
story of his heroism been
widely told. Linberg was in a
group of Marines who help
raise the first American flag
on Mount Suribachi during
the battle of Iwo Jima.
On the morning of Feb. 23,
1945, Mount Suribachi was
captured by the leathernecks.
Corporal Lindberg, 24, and
five other marines raised an
American flag on a long pole
they found after fighting their
way to the top of the
mountain. The scene was
photographed by Sgt. Lou
Lowery.
Chuck Linberg was a hero


that day along with a host of
others who did not raise the
flag, get photographed, or
even survived the battle. They
were pursuing a cause they
believed was noble and just,
and they acted with a sort of
honor and bravery that had
been instilled in them.
Anyone today who wants to
be a hero must practice for
the role. You practice by being
honest and keeping your word
and by telling the truth and
fulfilling commitments and
promises, being on time and
doing your job. Heroes build.
character by spending time
with your children and
teaching them to treat their
parent respectfully, aging
gracefully, battling cancer,
paying bills and planting
flowers. People who train to
live this way under ordinary
circumstances are the one
who act with decency,
integrity, boldness and
bravery when the chips are
down.
Chuck Linberg moved to
the Twin Cities and became
an electrician after the war.
For years, people thought he
was either delusional or lying
about helping to raise the first
flag. Then the record was
finally clarified and corrected.
The last surviving
flag-raiser of Iwo Jima died on
June 25, just two days short of
turning 87. Thank you, Mr.
Linberg, for your heroism,
and for causing the rest of us
to think about what it takes to
be heroes in our
circumstances.
In my book one other hero
needs mentioning. "The rich
cast money into the treasury,
and there came a certain poor
widow, and she threw in two
mites which make a farthing.
Truly I say unto you that
this poor widow cast in more
than they all... for all they
did cast in of their abundance,
but she, of her want, did cast
in all that she had, even all of
her living." (Mark 12:41-44)
She was a great example of
heroism.

winning religious writer and
inspirational speaker who lives in

Reflecting on the war of the galaxies


astronomers using
three orbiting
space telescopes
have discovered a
huge intergalactic
death ray.
A supermassive black hole
is blasting a nearby galaxy -
in space terms, 20,000 light-
years seems to qualify as
"nearby" with an intense


beam of highly charged
radiation. If there were any
life forms in the smaller
galaxy, they're gone now, and
the galaxy itself could be
pounded into the formation of
new stars. The huge jet of
radiation gamma rays and
X-rays is then deflected
into space in a process that
could continue for millions


more years.
None of this will affect
Earth because the two
galaxies are more than
1.4 billion light-years away
from our own Milky Way.
A similar situation could,
though, happen here as the
galaxy Andromeda edges ever
closer to the Milky Way.

COMMENTARY



Listen to



this man

n the midst of year-end craziness -
taking care of my organization's
year-closing business and doing
Christmas shopping I didn't anticipate
that I'd find time to read a new book.
But when I saw Dr. Ben Carson's, 'Take the
Risk: Learning to Identify, Choose, and Live
with Acceptable Risk," I couldn't resist
I spotted the slim volume while gift
shopping in a bookstore. But it wasn't the
catchy title that caused me to pick it up. It was
the author. I already knew Ben Carson's
remarkable story. I read his first book "Gifted
Hands" 10
years ago. .
After I read it, I ,-
gave it to my
kids and
insisted that
they read it.
Carson is
director of S
pediatric Star Parker
neurosurgery
at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and a
professor of neurosurgery, plastic surgery,
oncology, and pediatrics. He also sits on the
boards of several major corporations and is a
noted philanthropist.
He is also one of a handful of black
pediatric neurosurgeons in the world. He
grew up penniless in the slums of Detroit and
Boston, raised by a single mother who
worked as a domestic, often working three
jobs at a time.
As a young kid, as Carson tells the story, he
was a failing student and earned the name
"Dummy" from his classmates.
His mother saw what was happening and
out of fear that her two sons would lead the
way into yet another generation in poverty,
she took action. She told her boys that she
would pray for the wisdom for what to do.
Her prayers were answered, but the boys
weren't particularly thrilled to hear their
Mom's new-found guidance. They were told
that the extent-of their television watching
each week would be three shows of their
choice. And, that each would read two books
a week and give her a written report on both.
This was the beginning of a change that set
young Ben's life on a new course.
One thing Ben and his brother didn't know.
When his Mom looked over and checked off
their weekly book reports, she wasn't actually
reading them. Ben's Mom's education stopped
at the third grade and she couldn't read.
Carson went on to become one of the
world's most sought-after pediatric
neurosurgeons, known for his boldness and
creativity.
He has written a number of books in which
he shares both his story and philosophy. He is
a man of deep faith who believes in both
individual responsibility and individual
uniqueness. As he sees it, these elements are
crucial for individual success, but also to
maintain the greatness of our country.
I believe that Carson's message is
particularly powerful and relevant to the
challenges facing Americans today, poor and
rich, white and black.
Here are a few snippets I've extracted from
a lengthy interview done with Carson by the
Academy of Achievement, in which he was
inducted a number of years ago:
Growing up poor and "at risk": "Once I
recognized that I had the ability to pretty
much map out my own future based on the
choices that I made and the degree of energy
that I put into it, life was wonderful at that
point. I used to hate my life up until that point
because I hated being poor."
Personal responsibility: "My mother was a
person who would never accept an excuse
from my brother or myself. It didn't matter
what the situation was. If you came with an
excuse, she would also say, 'Do you have a
brain?' After a while it became clear to us that
no excuse was acceptable, so we became
pretty creative."
Family: "The more solid the family
foundation, the more likely you are to be able
to resist peer pressure. Human beings are
social creatures. We all want to belong, we all
have that desire. If the family doesn't provide
that, the peers will, or the gang will."
Priorities: "The most important thing to me
is taking your God-given talents and
developing them to the utmost, so that you
can be useful to your fellow man."
God and America: "(God) has become an
essential part of my life and my being...
When we created this nation, we believed in
God.... I believe that's one of the reasons ...
we got to be so great, so quickly."
In his new book, Carson discusses his

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE SATURDAY, DECEMBER 29, 2007


,,/ 1 7A
M idnight...New Year's Eve. The clock counts down; this is
the moment you've been waiting for. Confetti flies!
Laughter resounds! Resolutions have been made, this year will be
different. Are you ready?
Life is unpredictable and reality may attempt to weaken your
resolve. This year can be different with God's help. You can keep I
those resolutions with the strength that God provides, long after
New Year's Day has come and gone. Without His help you are
helpless as a baby, yet when you trust in God, you are promised
that "...the old has gone, the new has come" (2 Corinthians 5:17)!
Spend time with God this year at your house of worship; let that
be your first and most important resolution. Walk with God and
you will always be ready!

including all meats, vegeta-
bles, salad and desserts.
Friday and Saturday see the
restaurant offer fresh seafood
on the buffet for a price of
$9.99. Children can eat the buf-
fet for $3.99 daily and children
younger than 3 eat for free.
"We're the best price in
town," O'Neal said. "We're
affordable for working
families."
Ole Times Country Buffet's
opening in Lake City will cul-
minate a three-month process
of remodeling the mall loca-


tion and going through the
process of moving in restau-
rant equipment and getting the
proper permits for operation.
"We're very excited about
their opening and what they
bring to the mall," said Janice
Keaton, public relations and
marketing director for Lake
City Mall.
"They will be a great addi-
tion to the mall and to Lake
City."
O'Neal said he has hired
120 full-time workers who will
be in place when the restau-


rant opens on Wednesday.
"Some will make it, some
won't, but they're all full-time
jobs," he said.
"After our first three
months open, we'll average
80-90 full-time jobs in the
restaurant."
O'Neal said he and the Ole
Times concept have been
welcomed in Lake City.
"Everything has been great
here," he said.
"I think we have a great
location that will work out
great for everyone."

DuBose said the police
department has not released
the name of the child who was
shot or the name of the other
person in the room where the
shooting took place because
both are juveniles.
The 13-year-old was airlifted


to a Gainesville hospital as a
result of the mishap.
Local authorities have not
received an update on the
child's medical condition and it
was unclear if he is still in the
hospital.
"I do not know if the child


has been released, but I know
from reading the report that it
was just a flesh-type wound,"
DuBose said.
"There didn't appear to be
any type of bone damage or
anything involved that's going
to harm the child."

in."
The discount drug card pro-
gram is administered by
Caremark Pharmacy Services,
the benefit management, mail
order and specialty pharmacy
division of CVS Caremark.
Caremark negotiates with
pharmacies to offer a discount
off their retail prices for coun-
ty residents who use the dis-
count card.
"Once the card holder's
information is entered into our
system, it won't be necessary
to carry the card," Rosenfeld
said.
Cardholders are eligible for


higher discounts by ordering a
three-month supply of some
medications through the mail.
Cardholders may also save on
pet prescriptions at participat-
ing retail pharmacies, accord-
ing to CVS Caremark.
The program also has a built-
in safety feature that alerts
pharmacists when one drug
may conflict with another med-
ication the cardholder is tak-
ing, if the drugs were obtained
using the discount card.
"There is no enrollment
form, no membership fee and
no restrictions or limits on fre-
quency of use," Crummitt


residents


said. "Cardholders and their
families may use the card any
time their prescriptions are
not already covered by insur-
ance."
Cards are available at the
Board of County
Commissioners office, the
county health department, the
family health center, all
Columbia County Public
Library locations, the Lifestyle
Enrichment Center and City
Hall.
County residents can call

Bryant


spreads


positive


message
When I
came back
from my
four-day
Christmas
mini-vacation, I was
surprised when I listened
to my voicemail.
There was a message
from Arthur Bryant, a
former Columbia High
running back, who told me
he had recently received a
contract offer from an arena
football team.
I Wasn't shocked that
another athlete from Lake
City had an opportunity to
make some waves in the
pros, but his motives
caught me a little off guard.
It wasn't about bragging
to teammates he'd long
since lost contact with. It
wasn't because he even
thought it was big news.
Bryant said lie was
interested in getting his'
story out there so other
kids could see that sticking
with their dreams and
working hard do pay off.
It has been more than two
years since he last took a
snap at Glenville State
College in West Virginia, and
he kept in shape and sent
out videos while working to
stay afloat the whole time.
"I want kids to know that
they should stick to their
dreams," Bryant said. "I had
to deal with people every
day who told me to quit. I
want kids to know that,
whatever you do, sports or
school or anything, they
should have faith. God
doesn't give anyone talent
without a reason."
Bryant said he had three
simple principles he had
lived by while trying to get
through the day-to-day
grind with big dreams.
Education is priority No. 1.
Without it, he said, he'd be
nowhere. It takes a lot of
learning to get good at
anything, even football.
Next, surrounding
yourself with positive
people is always good idea.
They'll act as moral support
no matter what your goal is,
and they'll help keep you on
the straight and narrow.
"Positive people can be
the difference," Bryant
said. "They'll keep you out
of trouble. And it's easy to
get into trouble and hard to
get out of it."
Finally, finding a quality
role model is key. If you're
not looking up to someone
who is making a difference,
there's no reason to look up
to anyone at all, he said.
"You want to find
someone who is doing
Something good," Bryant
said. '"You have to see how
to set goals and do
something positive. Then
you can follow their example
or make your own path."
SWith a message like that,
it's easy to see how Bryant
can make a big difference
in Sioux City, Lake City and
everywhere in between
Before the first snap of the
season.

Arthur Bryant, of Lake City, was recently offered a contract with the Sioux City Bandits, a United Indoor Football League
team, two years after playing his last college football game.





Waiting game


Two years after his last
college game, former
CHS player goes pro.
By CHRIS WHITE
cwhite@lakecityreporter. corn

Sometimes, getting to the big
time depends on who you know.
For former Columbia High
running back Arthur Bryant, it was
his longtime friendship with former
CHS teammate Jerome Carter, who
now plays for the St. Louis Rams,
that made the difference.
"I was about to quit on my
dream," Bryant said. "I was about to
give it up. But I talked to Jerome
and he said, I know you can be
here. You're good enough. Don't
give up."
Bryant took the advice. He
continued training in hopes of
finding a professional football team
willing to take him on two years
after his last college football game.
That's when he got the call from
coaches and the general manager
of the United Indoor Football


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Former Tigers running back and Lake
City native Arthur Bryant holds up his
Sioux City Bandits contract.
League's Sioux City Bandits.
Bryant was on Interstate 75
en route to Atlanta for a workout
with the newly formed All American


Football League when he said he
got the phone call that made all the
odd jobs and two-a-day workouts
worth it.
"AMll thnos guys had me ont'
speakerphone and they said, how
would you like to play for us,"
Bryant said. "They said, if you say
yes, we'll send you the contract
right now."

The first quarter

When he graduated in 2001,
Bryant was a notable athlete at
CHS, but did not garner the amount
of attention of some of his
teammates, he said.
He was a starting varsity running
back for three seasons under Coach
Danny Green at CHS, and he
dabbled in defense when needed.
He was a member of the
weightlifting team and placed sixth

Tigers come up big in



second half to stay alive


By CHRIS WHITE
cwhite@lakecityreporter. com

The Columbia High boys
varsity basketball team
battled out of an early deficit to
stay alive on Friday at the
Playground Area Shootout
tournament in Fort Walton
Beach.
The Tigers defeated
Dickson County High (Tenn.)
49-48 with the help of a
third-quarter charge led by
Kenny Williams and a few
last-minute free throws.
Columbia, however, came
out slow and fell behind 12-5
at the end of the first quarter
and trailed 26-14 at the half.
"That first half we came out
and were just unable to get
anything going offensively,"
CHS coach Trey Hosford
said. "And when we did get
some looks, we weren't able
to get them in."
The Tigers had a halftime
turnaround and Williams
scored 12 of his 28 points in
the third and 18 in the fourth.
Combined with Dont'ae
Davis' 17 points, the two
totaled 45 of the Tigers' 49.
Columbia dug deep in the
third quarter, and Joe
Bradshaw led the Tigers'
defense.
"We really picked up the
intensity in the third quarter,"
Hosford said. "(Dickson
County) really had to work for
any points they got, so the few
they did score they deserved."
The Tigers entered the
fourth quarter tied 31-31,
and really only distanced
themselves in the final minute
of play when they hit six of
seven free throws.
Columbia is now 7-6 overall
and 3-1 at the tournament,
and plays the winner of Friday
night's Choctawhatchee High-
Gulf Breeze High game today
for fifth place. If Choctaw
wins, it will be a rematch of
last year's fifth-place game,
which the Tigers won.

varsity basketball team fell
51-48 to Poplarville High
(Miss.) in the second round
of a tournament on Friday at
Fort Walton Beach.
The Tigers trailed by five
with 12 seconds to go when
Columbia managed to get a
field goal and steal the ball in
the final seconds, but could
not get off a 3-pointer to tie.
'The girls played hard,
though," CHS coach Horace
Jefferson said. "This weekend
has been a real learning
experience. I told them
they need to learn to win,
and they're figuring that
out."
The Tigers' fate might have
been different, Jefferson said,
had they capitalized on free
throws. Columbia was
9-for-18 from the line Friday,
and had trouble shooting
from anywhere else, too.
"I give them credit, though,
because when they realized
they weren't shooting well,
they played good defense,"
Jefferson said.
Sharmayne Edwards led
CHS with 26 points; Tasheona
Harris scored 10; Yasmen
Harrington scored five,
Alexis McCray scored four;
and Shaniqua Henry and
Deandrea Edwards scored
two.
Columbia plays again today
at 9 a.m. CST.


Columbia High soccer

The Columbia High boys
varsity soccer team opened
the annual Christmas
tournament at the CYSA fields
in Lake City and let everyone
know it was their home.
The Tigers rolled past
Middleburg High 3-0 in
a morning game and defeated
previously unbeaten St Francis
High 3-0 later in the day.
Mallory Leighty scored
all three goals against
Middleburg, one on an assist
from Jorge Carrillo and two
on assists from Geoff
Beardsley.
Leighty scored again
against St Francis and added
an assist. Jason Strickland
and Beardsley also scored to
help hand St. Francis its first
loss of the season.
Goalkeeper Kyle Townsend
had 10 saves and Kyle Pitman
had five saves against
Middleburg, and Townsend
recorded a shutout with
his seven saves against
St. Francis.
Columbia plays Panama
City Arnold High at 10:30 a.m.
today, and would advance to
the 5:30 p.m. title game with a
victory. :
Fort White High fell 5-0 to
St. Francis in their opener
before falling to Suwannee
High on Friday.

Continued From Page 1B
was overlooked in high
school, someone took notice
- the University of
Tennessee at Martin.
But he only spent a single
season as a Skyhawk. He
quickly transferred to the
Glenville State College in
West Virginia, where he spent
the next three years climbing
the Division II school's
all-time rushing list no
small feat for the Pioneers'
style of offense, Bryant said.
"We were really a passing
team," he said. "We'd throw
the ball 40, 50 times a game.
So to be on that list is a big
deal."
Bryant then suffered an
MCL injury and missed four
games in his senior year. He
said not being able to finish
hurt any pro stock he had,
and was a big disappointment
after having such a
bittersweet college career.
"It was tough for us
because we never made the
playoffs," he said. "I knew I
wanted to play football after
school, but it was hard after
that and hurting my MCL."
So when his phone didn't
ring on draft day, he went to
work.

Timeout
Bryant graduated with a
bachelor's degree in liberal
arts and general sciences,
and said he considers himself
fortunate to have had that
kind of education.
"Education means every-
thing, it really does," he said.
"I wouldn't have been able to
do anything without it after
school."
But that didn't mean it was
easy to make a living while
hunting down his dream of
playing in the pros.
Bryant spent time shifting
between jobs, and spent time
as a child welfare investigator
for the state, a merchandiser
for Coca-Cola, a warehouse
worker for Dollar General and
countless temp jobs among
other things.
In his down time, Bryant
would hit the gym and was
constantly adding to his video
resume.
"Every day, I'd get up, work
out and go to work," he said.
"But every day, I knew I


wanted to play football still. I
felt like I just had to do all this
work and start at the bottom
to get to the top."
He would send out tapes of
his college highlights mixed
with clips of his most recent
workouts. He even got an
agent out of Fort Pierce to get
his tapes out to the right
people. But Bryant said he
was only human, and when
nobody seemed interested,
he considered calling it a day.
"Sometimes I'd say I was
done," he said. "I wasn't going
to do this any more. I wanted
to just quit, use my degree to
find a good job and just let it
go."
His family stepped in to keep
him going, and Apostle
Cleopatra Steel of the Miracle
Tabernacle Church in Lake
City, where Bryant is a
member, offered some
guidance.
"They just kept me going
and prayed for me," Bryant
said. "I couldn't have kept
going without them and
their prayers. It was just
inspirational."

A little extra help
Hearing he was good
enough, fast enough and
strong enough to play again
from people he lived and
worked with was not enough
for Bryant. That's when he
called Carter to tell him he
simply wanted to stop chasing
the game.
"It's great to hear people
tell you you're good at work,
but it's another thing to have
someone who plays on
Sunday tell you that," Bryant
said.
Carter and Bryant stayed
close after high school.
Bryant was a frequent visitor
to Carter's home in St. Louis,
and the two spend time
together in Lake City when
they have the opportunity.
So Carter closely watched
Bryant's struggles, and knew
he was just one break away
from making it. If Bryant had
not quit yet, Carter said he
was not about to let him give
up just yet.
"I told him I'd support him
in whatever lie did," Carter
said. "But I told him he
shouldn't give up yet. I


thought he had a chance to do
more. As a friend, I felt that
was my job to say that."

Signing bonus
Bryant's pro football career
almost ended as abruptly as it
began when he got the phone
call on Dec. 20 while driving
on 1-75 to Georgia.
"I almost wrecked right
there," Bryant said. "I was on
my way to Atlanta for a an
AAFL workout when I got the
call, and I almost wrecked."
The coaches and general
manager of the Bandits said
they had seen Bryant's video
and were impressed. They
wanted to know if they should
send out the contract and if
they could count on him to
report to practice on Feb. 15
in Sioux City, Iowa.
It was a simple business
call, but brought Bryant's
entire life into focus.
"When I hung up, I just
started crying," Bryant said.
"I couldn't believe it. It wasn't
Draft day, but it was a lot like
it for me."
Four days later, on
Christmas Eve, Bryant
received the contract. No one
was more excited over the
early Christmas gift than
Carter.
"It felt real good when I
heard about it," Carter said.
"It was just a feeling words
can't explain. I was so proud
of him, especially after two
years without playing. A lot of
other people would have just
walked away."
Now Bryant is looking
forward to hearing his name
called on March 8 when the
Bandits open the season
against the Wichita Wild in
Wichita, Kansas. And when
Sioux City finishes up its
14-game regular season in
June, Bryant said he hopes
he'll be a common name with
arena football fans.
"I just want to blow it up
when I get there," Bryant
said. "I want to be rookie of
the year I want to lead the
league in rushing. I want to
win a championship.
"I feel like I'm going to do
good. Whether it's the CFL,
the NFL or whatever, I feel
like I have the talent, I just
have to stay positive."

DEAR ABBY


Don't touch or feed assistance


:-- dog without asking permission


- - -w DEAR ABBY: I was having
- 4 -~- lunch in a restaurant recently.
.- Seated next to us was a family
11 M who had an assistance dog for
* ** * their teenage son. I was
appalled when someone from
S -- another table approached the
- dog, began talking baby talk
-. - to it (while ignoring the peo-
o* ple!) and dropped a scrap of
__ 4 -- meat on the floor in front of
-,- - -- the dog's nose.
a* *qW * The dog ignored the "treat,"
.* -- - M and the mother calmly asked
-- 4 a -- the person to please stop dis-
S* - tracting their assistance dog
-- - while it was working. I was
*-- 4 -- - -- dazzled by her politeness in
d -. -- the face of such rudeness and
0*0 * -- - --e thoughtlessness.
S- Abby, people need to know
S* -** * how to behave around'assis-
S*4 O dm Wn* tance dogs so they don't
S-* - endanger the person with a
-- disability or the dog:
- -. ** (1) Always speak to the per-
- - son first. Do not make
--. distracting noises to the dog.
- (2) Always ask before you
** pet. Do not touch the service
4 M.a dog without first asking for
- -- and receiving permission.
Petting should be minimal
and cease as soon as the per-
-- son gives the dog a command.
S - (3) Never feed or offer food
to a working dog. It distracts
him and lures him away from
- his important job as an
* assistance dog.
-- (4) Do not let your dog initi-
ate contact with a working
dog while it's on duty.
(5) Do not ask personal

questions about the person's
disability or otherwise intrude
on his/her privacy.
The Americans With
Disabilities Act (ADA)
ensures people with assis-
tance dogs have access to
public places and businesses.
Please welcome them
into your establishment.-
KARYL CARMIGNANI,
CANINE COMPANIONS
FOR INDEPENDENCE
DEAR KARYL: It's amaz-
ing how many animal lovers
do not grasp the fact that
when they see an assistance
dog out in public that the ani-
mal is WORKING. Although
wanting to reach out and
touch it is natural, it is no
more correct than it would be
to pet a dog that works in law
enforcement. Thank you for
your informative letter. I hope
readers will learn from it
because many of your
comments apply to animals in
general.
DEAR ABBY: I have a
hereditary trait for low vision
that is not correctible with
glasses. The fact that I cannot


see well is not obvious to most
people. All my life people have
been judgmental and become
offended and stay mad forever
when I don't recognize them
from across the room or
street, or remember them
after I haven't seen them for a
while.
As a professional, I have
tried many exercises in recog-
nizing people who don't have
an outstanding physical trait
to remember them by. Also
(for example), women change
their hairstyle or color often,
and I can't discern facial fea-
tures very well.
I just want to remind people
that some of us have medical
problems you don't know
about, and we are not
unfriendly or rude or have
bad manners. Please give peo-
ple the benefit of the doubt.
Sometimes there are things
about someone you don't
know. Please stop being so
judgmental and count your
blessings. LEGALLY
BLIND IN AMERICA
DEAR L.B.: You have less
a vision problem than you
have a communication prob-
lem. Remaining silent about
your disability is like trying to
smuggle dawn past a rooster.
People already know some-
thing is wrong. They think it's
your personality.

* Write Dear Abby at
www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box
