Heisman Trophy winner shares inspiration with Lake City inmates


'You might not have had a
good first, second or third
quarter, but you still
have the choice to
finish strong.'

- Tim Tebow


I JASON MATTHEW WALKERIL' e ilty '-p1._r
Tim Tebow. the University of Florida's Heisman Trophy winner and-two-time national champion, gives inspirational words to approximately 900 inmates, between the ages of 19 and
24, at the Correction Corporation of America's gymnasium Tuesday. 'You might not have had a good first, second or third quarter,' Tebow said, "but you still have the choice to finish
strong.'


Heisman-winner
inspires prisoners
at CCA facility.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comrn
im Tebow's
catch phrase
is "Finish
Strong."
And like
the rest of the Florida
Gators football team, it's
his mantra on the field
every Saturday during the
football season, and in the
weight room on a daily
basis.
But off the field, it's
more than a motto - it's
the way he lives his life.
The Gators finished
strong on the field during
their recent national cham-
pionship run, but "how
much more important is
it to finish strong in life,"
Tebow asked on Tuesday
as he spoke to hundreds
of inmates at Correction
Corporation of America's
Lake City Correctional
Facility.
"You might not have
had a good first, second
or third quarter," he said,
"but you still have the
choice to finish strong."

The Heisman-winning
quarterback was in Lake
City to share an inspi-
rational message with
approximately 900 inmates
at the correctional facility
during three different ses-
sions throughout the day.
The private prison houses
inmates between the ages
of 19 and 24 and helps
them get their lives back
in order for the time when
they finish their sentence
and re-enter the world.
Tebow was at first
scheduled to speak at
the facility last week,
but he was called to the
Southeastern Conference
Media Day and the event
had to be rescheduled for
Tuesday.
When the popular
Gators quarterback walked
into the prison gymnasium,
he was met with a round
of applause from inmates
waiting to hear him speak.
By the end of his first
speech, a number of facil-
ity employees had gath-
ered to converse with the
quarterback and get mem-
orabilia signed. Tebow was
glad to do so - after he
had shaken the hand of
every inmate present.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS



Review: 'People' is both funny, frustrating


LOS ANGELES
Sf only Adam Sandier and Seth
Rogen hadn't gotten in the car.
If only they hadn't left Los
Angeles, where everything
in "Funny People" was going
so well, and driven north to Marin
County, where everything falls apart.
Judd Apatow would have had his
most mature, accomplished film to
date.
Instead, the last hour or so mean-
ders interminably, its tone wavering
all over the place, leading to a quick-
ie conclusion that feels pat. And that
is such a letdown when you consider
the strength and ambition of the
material that preceded it.
"Funny People" provides the
eternally adolescent Sandler with
yet another opportunity to show his
serious side, following substantive
turns in films like "Punch-Drunk
Love" and "Spanglish." But it also
allows Apatow, as writer and direc-
tor, to display some previously unex-
plored darker instincts, with a story
that mixes his typically raunchy guy
talk with deeper discussions about
mortality. Both men rise to the chal-
lenge.

School board considers mileage rate


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com

The Columbia County
School Board discussed
the tentative budget and
millage rate for.the upcomh-
ing school year, and tabled
making a decision until a
it holds a special meeting
Monday night.
The meeting is sched-
uled to take place at the
school board administra-
tion complex at 7 p.m. on
Monday.
The district originally
advertised its intent to levy
a 7.611 millage rate for
the upcoming year, which
includes a 1.50 mills rate
for Local Capital Outlay
Improvement. However,


Tuesday night the dis-
trict discussed changing
the Local Capital Outlay
Improvement rate to 1.25,
and adding a quarter-mill
Discretionary Critical
Needs Operating rate.
The .25 mill critical
needs rate would net the
district approximately
$800,000 for the 2009-2010
school year from the state
of Florida. The quarter-
mill rate is not a new tax
levied, but a shift in the
millage rate, and can be
revisited every school
year.
Kevin Doyle, president
of the Columbia Teachers
Association, made a pre-
sentation asking board
members to approve the


millage rate that includ-
ed the 1.50 mill rate for
Local Capital . Outlay
Improvement, as well as
levying the new quarter-
mill tax. Doing both, he
said, would net the district
approximately $2.8 million
over the next two years.
The additional millage rate
increase would cost coun-
ty residents approximately
$18.75 per $100,000 of the
cost of their house.
Doyle said the proposed
millage rate for 2009-2010
is about 10 percent less
than what homeowners
paid in 2008-2009, and add-
ing the quarter-mill would
still cost taxpayers less.
The board opted to
recess its meeting on the


tentative millage rate and
meet again Monday night
with a public hearing.
The board also approved
a purchase of print screen'
equipment and materials
from Hunter Printing for
Fort White High School,
which plans to begin
a printing academy this
fall. The academy would
encompass the business
and graphic arts class-
es, and possibly allow
students to obtain two
certifications by gradua-
tion that would better pre-
pare them for the business
world.
The cost was $8,000,
a price discounted by
Hunter Printing because it
was slightly used.

Commission to

reveal floor budget


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County offi-
cials will unveil the 2009-
2010 proposed floor budget
during a budget workshop
Thursday.
The workshop will take
place 9 a.m. Thursday at the
Columbia County School
Board Administrative
Complex Auditorium, 372
W. Duval St.
Thursday's meeting will
serve as 'the second bud-
get workshop for county
officials as they discuss the
2009-2010 fiscal budget.
"The fiscal year will
begin Oct. 1 and runs to
Sept. 30 next year," said
Columbia County manager
Dale Williams.
As part of the budget
workshop, Williams said
areas of the budget that
have significant changes


for the upcoming budget
year will be discussed at
length.
"We'll review the budget
with the board and touch
base on the changes that
were made from the board's
first workshop," he said.
Officials are anticipate>
ing having another bud-
get workshop in the near
future.
"Because of the way the
revenues worked out this
year, it looks like at- the
least we'll have three bud-
get workshops this year,"
Williams said. "We've got to
let the board see the floor
budget and let the board
adjust it as they see fit
Once we have it we'll be
able to notify any impacted
parties and they'll be given
a chance to speak to the
board, before we present
the budget for public hear-
ings."

Palin: Not

gone, not

forgotten

America's most
entertaining and
polarizing politician
is leaving electoral
politics. Since Sarah
Palin also seems to be one of
our most impulsive politicians
perhaps her departure is only
momentary.
� Palin stunned the world of.
conventional politics earlier this
month by announcing that she
was quitting the Alaska gov-
ernor's office with 18 months
remaining in her term.
After her run for the vice
presidency with John McCain
made her a rising Republican
star, the textbook course for
her career would have been to
finish out her term as governor,
possibly run for a second term
if she could swing it,and quietly
immerse herself in national and
international issues in prepara-
tion for a return to the national
stage in 2012 or perhaps 2016.
She could easily raise the
funds to do it. Her SarahPAC
has more than $1 million on
hand even now. And her book
contract and a speaking tour
would keep her in the public
eye. She would have to address
-a serious political problem:
While she is wildly popular
among Republicans, she is
considerably less so among
Democrats and independents.
Palin has said that in the
interest of bipartisanship
she will campaign for both
Republicans and conservative
Democrats in 2010, a plan that,
if she goes through with it, will
hardly endear her to the GOP
leadership.
If her announcement that she
was quitting the governorship
was rambling and occasionally
incoherent, her remarks on
actually leaving office Sunday
had the fire and flash of 2008.
She warned against a here-
tofore-unknown villain - "deli-
cate, tiny celebrity starlets"
pushing an anti-hunting agen-
da: "Hollywood needs to know
we eat, therefore we hunt." And
she had this loopy non sequitur
for the media: "How about in
honor of the American soldie-
you quit making' things up."
, In all deference to Palin, you
couldn't make this stuff up. She
is truly her own person and we
look forward to the next stage
of her career.

National debate over race will never end


WASHINGTON -
t'was astounding the
other day to hear a
national television pundit
state unequivocally that
Americans seldom talk
about race, that there is no
national dial ogue on the subject
Has he been living on another
planet or in a locked room with
no contact with the outside
world?
The fact is that we seem to
talk about little else. Hardly a
day passes without some inci-
dent that provokes a discussion
about our national failure to
adhere to the founders' declara-
tion that all men are created
equal - hardly the truth from
many aspects, but certainly a
phrase with a nice ring to it
After all, some men and women
are born rich, some bright,
some dumb, some healthy,
some not
That, of course, is not what
the Constitution's writers
meant, and when we talk about
equality it is usually in the
context of black and white and
to some extent now, brown, if
we wish to include the nation's
largest minority, Hispanics. The'
"good guys, bad guys" debate
based on skin coloration has
gone on since the founding and
probably will continue until
global warming or a meteor-
ite wipes out all vestiges of a
society thought to be history's
greatest example of government
for and by the people.
There is no question.that
since the 1964 adoption of the
great Civil Rights Act, things
have gotten more equal and
the tone of the rhetoric has
cooled. But now and again along
comes a Henry Louis Gates
Jr., and a Sgt James Crowley


LETTERS TO

Obama's apology is
no apology
To the Editor:
On Page 1 of the July 25
Reporter the top left corner
reads, "'Ratcheting Up': Obama
apologizes for comment made
during press conference."
The above is referring to the
comment by President Obama
that Cambridge, Mass., police
had "acted stupidly" by arrest-
ing Henry Louis Gates Jr., a


Dan K.Thomasson
- a Harvard professor and a
Cambridge police officer - and
the argument about fair treat-
ment and disrespect between
the races once again is heard
throughout the land at a fairly
loud decibel made even more so
by the voice of the president of
the United States. Suddenly we
are back roaring at full throttle
about whether the professor
would have been arrested in his
own home by the white officer
had the professor been white.
In this case, at least, there
seems to be plenty of room to
argue it flat or argue it round.
A call that someone was try-
ing to break into Gates' home
produced a legitimate inquiry
by police. When it turned out to
be Gates himself returning from
vacation to find a stuck door,
that should have been the end
of it, after proper identification
certainly. Crowley, an officer
with no indication of racial bias
- indeed he schooled fellow
officers in how to avoid racial
profiling - objected to what :
he described as Gates' belliger-
ent attitude, obviously born of
a general black sensitivity to
white police offenses through
the ages. Crowley said he
warned the professor to be civil
to no avail and when he wasn't,
arrested him for disorderly con-
duct.
OK, now we have a major
flap that was regional in nature


THE EDITOR


Harvard scholar and friend of
the president's, for disorderly
conduct.
I read the referenced article.
In fact, I read it several times. At
no place in the article did I see
an apology. What I read was:
"This has been ratcheted
up, and I obviously helped to
contribute ratcheting it up" he
said. "I want to make clear that
in my choices of words. I think
I unfortunately gave an impres-
sion that I was maligning the


until Barack Obama admittedly
went overboard and'called the
Cambridge police stupid, a
charge he hastily recanted the
next day when he realized there
are always two sides and that
he had given the national media
wonderful relief from report-
ing about his health program
- a story that marches up and
down so many hills without any
progress that everyone involved
has begun to shown signs of
acute motion sickness. It was
the consummate "hot weather"
story, as we used to say in the
newspaper business.
There is an overriding sense
now that two intelligent human
beings - the professor and
the officer - actually did what
often occurs when tempers
flair, they let their emotions get
in the way of common sense.
As a result, both are placed in
the awkward position of being
partially right and partially
wrong and having to defend
themselves as wholly correct
Gates was disturbed by the
police appearance at his door
and Crowley by the fact the
professor became verbally disre-
spectful because of it. Crowley
should have tried to ignore the
professor's anger and walked
away after having determined
Gates was not a house burglar
but the owner of the house.
In the best of all worlds, race
should not have been a factor,
but that is not the world we live
in. Some racial incidents should
provoke a national debate, oth-
ers, like this one, hardly mea-
sure up.

Cambridge police department
and Sgt. Crowley specifically.
And I could've calibrated those
words differently."
Can anyone explain to me and
the world what "calibrated those
words differently" means? I per-
sonally see no apology in that at
all, but rather a confusing mis-
use of the English language. An
apology was called for but in my
opinion not given.

The Rolling

Stones don't

cover good

parenting

Call it chickens com-
ing home to roost.
Call it reaping what
you sow. But should
the lead singer of
the Rolling Stones be surprised
that his 17-year-old daughter
is posing semi-nude for an
American jeans company?
Surely the songsmith of
"Stray Cat Blues" and "Brown
Sugar" saw this one coming.
I'm trying not to question
the guy's parenting, but I'm
going to go out on a limb
and suggest that Georgia
May Jagger, daughter of rock
god Mick Jagger and super-
model Jerry Hall, didn't have a
typical childhood upbringing.
Although she's said in earlier
London interviews that her
dad isn't the "cool" guy you'd
think him to be from his stage
presence, I have a hard time
conjuring up a father-daughter
lecture about inappropriate
hemlines.
And mom. Georgia's rec-
ollection of parental career
advice from mother, as she
related in a London Daily Mail
interview, was to be nice to
people and "don't show your
bum."
This isn't the first time,
,according to the reliable
Daily Mail, that Jagger has
expressed shock at one of his
children's public behaviors. In
2004, Georgia's older sister,
Elizabeth, followed the mater-
nal family line by adorning the
catwalk in an outfit sans top.
But Elizabeth was 20 at the
time and this makes Georgia's
model shoot different.
While both are inappropri-
ate and unnecessary forms of
advertising, Georgia's deci-
sion leads to questions. When
in our society did it become
acceptable to sexualize chil-
dren? When did it become OK
to equate a child with behav-
iors far beyond her maturity?
The whole idea is disgust-
ing.
So what am I to do when
I'm in a checkout aisle and my
newly teen daughter is bom-,
barded with suggestive maga-
zine covers that allude to every
opposite value her mom and I
are teaching? What do we do
when it takes twice as long as
it should to find what we deem
appropriate clothing when
we're out shopping?
These are age-old questions
that parents have wrestled with
since hoop skirts went out of
fashion, and every generation
has had to approach them in
its own way. But this genera-
tion seems to have advanced
far beyond my own in the "if it
feels good, do it" category.
Through a great blessing,
my wife and I have two girls
who are apparently listening
to us and paying attention on




ter. She is 17. It's hypocritical,
but give her the benefit of
hindsight Tell the girl, "no."
After all, one of you had to sign
off on this.
But since you did, be thank-
ful that Georgia's recent foray
into her craft didn't include
outright nudity. For now, it
seems she's following her
mother's advice.
Which would be good advice
for Mick, also. Because with
the parenting choices he's
made so far, he's the one show-
ing his bum.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEDNESDAY, JULY 29, 2009


ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this June 7 photo, a sign hangs outside a single-family home on the market on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle. Home prices in
May posted their first monthly increase since the summer of 2006, indicating prices are finally stabilizing.


Home prices post first rise in 3 years


By J.W. ELPHINSTONE
AP Real Estate

NEW YORK - There
were fresh signs Tuesday
that home prices in much
of the country are stabiliz-
ing and the housing mar-
ket is on the mend.
Home prices in May
posted their first monthly
increase since the sum-
mer of 2006, according to
the Standard & Poor's/
Case-Shiller 20-city index.
Prices rose from April in
13 of the cities tracked,
notably Cleveland, Dallas
and Boston.
The news follows upbeat
reports showing sales of
newly built and existing
homes rose in June for the
third straight month. And
new home construction,
while still weak, is the best


it's been since the fall.
The news: The 20-city
home price index rose 0.5
percent from April to a
reading of 139.8, but was
still 17.1 percent below the
reading of 168.6 in May a
year ago. It was the fourth
consecutive month the
index indicated prices have
turned the corner and are
heading back toward posi-
tive territory.
The 20-city index has
lost more than 32 percent
since its peak reading of
206.52 three years ago.
That means home prices
are back to mid-2003. lev-
els.
The. report: The Case-
Shiller index measures
home price increases and
decreases relative to prices
in January 2000. The base
reading is 100; so a read-


ing of 150 would mean that
home prices increased 50
percent since the begin-
ning of the index.
What it shows: The
index tracks repeat sales
of a designated group of
homes in each city. By
measuring the sales price
of the same properties
over time, the index pre-
vents the data from being
skewed by a change in the
types of homes sold. Sales
between related parties,
such as family members,
are excluded because they
may not reflect true mar-
ket values.
What it doesn't show:
The indexes only mea-
sure price data in 20 major
metropolitan areas in 15
states and the District of
Columbia. So many areas
of the country are not rep-


resented.
Why it matters: Investors
closely watch the Case-
Shiller indexes to gauge
the level and direction of
home prices. The index-
es include a broader mix
of properties compared
to the index created by
the Federal Housing
Finance Agency. That
index excludes many high-
end properties, as well as
homes bought with riskier
mortgages or all cash.
The quote: "We. may be
on the way to recovery,"
said Maureen Maitland,
vice president of S&P's
index services. "I say 'may'
because it's only been a
couple months of data and
home prices are season-
al ... It will take a couple
more months to see if we
have turned around."

Crude oil prices fall.

with stock market


By MARK WILLIAMS
AP Energy Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A
two-week rally in oil mar-
kets sputtered Tuesday
and crude prices fell along
with the stock market.
Prices first dipped in elec-
tronic trading before the
market opened and then
dropped sharply when new
data suggested consumers
are less confident than ever
about their jobs and the
economy as a whole.
Economic * anxiety has
kept people closer to home
this year and the most
energy-intense industries
have cut back on produc-
tion.
Benchmark crude for
September delivery fell
$1.15 to settle at $67.23 a
barrel in trading on the
New York Mercantile
Exchange.
What appears to be an
end to an extended rally
comes one day ahead of a
government report detail-
ing how much crude is in
storage.
If the latest economic
data can be taken as a
barometer, it suggests that
the appetite for energy has
not rebounded as quickly
as some had hoped.
Even before the sell-
off Tuesday, most energy
experts expected crude
in storage to rise because
demand remains weak.
A barrel of oil was about
$9 cheaper just two weeks
ago, before better-than-
expected corporate earn-
ings suggested to some
that the economy is on
the mend. The Dow Jones
industrial average has
jumped 11 percent in about
the same time.


But while many energy
experts and oil traders say
that .there is a clear corre-
lation between energy arid
equities markets, they have
questioned the whether oil
prices should be this high.
"Theoretically, the .oil
market shouldn't be fol-
lowing the equity markets
higher, but it has," said Jim
Ritterbusch of Ritterbusch
and Associates.
Executives at major
energy companies contin-
ue to say that a rebound in
demand is a long way off,
On Tuesday, the first
major international oil com-
pany ,reported results from
the second quarter.
BP PLC, Europe's sec-
ond largest oil company,
said profits fell 53 percent
compared with a year ear-
lier, when crude spiked to
record heights.
CEO Tony Hayward said
he expected any recov-
ery to be "long and drawn
out."
Valero Energy Corp.,
the nation's largest inde-.
pendent refiner, reported a
loss $254 million Tuesday,
just a year removed from
profits of $734 million. And
Valero said it could con-
tinue to lose money for the
rest of the year if a weak
economy persists.
The second quarter us
usually very strong for com-
panies like Valero, which
refines oil into jet fuel and
gasoline, because it is usu-
ally the three months when
people travel most.
But there is much less
being shipped in 18 wheel-
ers and Americans are driv-
ing far less than they did
in past years, even though
gasoline is a comparative
bargain.

-i - Shuttle undocks after


SI 11 days at space station


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Tebow ministers to hundreds of inmates on Tuesday, something he started to do several
years ago while in the Philippines. He now speaks at various places about 50 times a year.


TEBOW: Ministers to inmates


Continued From Page 1A
:Tebow said he become
involved in prison minis-
tries several years ago
while in the Philippines,
and after speaking at
a handful of events, he
began to expand his min-
istry. He said he speaks at
various venues an average
of 50 times a year.
Tebow's main mes-
sage was finding faith in
G0d through salvation,
arid related his childhood
experiences and his rela-
tionship with Jesus Christ
to those in the audience.
. He said he had com-
pleted a recent interview
and was asked if he con-
sidered his life a success
because of his Heisman
Trophy, his national cham-
pionships and his popular-
ity.
"And I told her ,Yes,
but not because of those


things,'" he said. "It's
because I have a personal
relationship with Jesus
Christ. I don't know what
the future holds, but
I know who holds my
future."
Tebow said he enjoys
speaking in prisons
because he wants others
to enjoy the same rela-
tionship with God that he
has, and that he believes
"there is nothing more
important than sharing
this with you."
More than 80 inmates
in Tebow's first session of
about 300 inmates were
drawn to the front to join
Tebow in prayer in an
altar call. Tebow shook
hands with each person
and then led them in a
prayer.
"There is nothing better
in life - and I've experi-


enced a lot of it - than a
personal relationship with
Jesus Christ," he said.
CCA Warden Jason .
Medln said that Tebow
is an influential speaker
because of his conduct on
and off the field.
"He has a very conta-
gious leadership spirit,"
he said. 'The message
that he sends is very
on-target for the youth-
ful offender program.
Although they have made
a mistake, they have the
ability to change and take
the step forward to make
a change, redirect their
energies and be success-
ful in life.
"He's someone that
this age group can iden-
tify with - he's a very
upstanding young man,
on and off the field," he
said.

CAPE CANAVERAL -
After 11 days together in
orbit, Endeavour undocked
from the international space
station on Tuesday and
began its trip home, leaving
behind a larger and more
energized outpost.
The shuttle's departure
broke up the biggest off-
the-planet gathering ever:
13 people altogether in
space. Seven astronauts
were headed back aboard


the shuttle. Six remained on
the station.
The two spacecraft
parted company 220 miles
above the Indian Ocean.
Endeavour took a lap
around the space station for
some impressive picture-
taking before pulling away
for good. The shuttle is aim-
ing for a Friday touchdown.
"Fair sailing ahead, guys,"
shuttle commander Mark
Polansky called out.
"You made us bigger and
better, and we were real-
ly glad to have you here,"


replied station resident
Michael Barratt. "It seems
awfully quiet here now with-
out you."
During their shared flight,
the two crews improved and
expanded the space station,
installing a porch for experi-
ments on Japan's science
lab and plugging in fresh
batteries. They also shared
some uneKpected incon-
veniences, most notably a
flooded toilet and an over-
heated air-cleansing sys-
tem, both of which ended
up being fixed.


Sotomayor to become first

Supreme Court Hispanic judge


By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - The
Senate Judiciary Committee
on Tuesday voted to
approve Sonia Sotomayor as
the first Hispanic Supreme
Court justice over nearly
solid Republican opposition,
paving the way for a his-
toric confirmation vote next
week.
.The panel voted 13-6 in
favor of Sotomayor, with
just one Republican, Sen.
Lindsey Graham of South
Carolina, joining Democrats
to support her. The near-
ly party-line tally masked
deeper political divisions
within GOP ranks about
confirming President
Barack Obama's first high
court nominee.
"I'm deciding to vote
for a woman I would not
have chosen," Graham said.
Obama's choice to nomi-


nate the first-ever Latina to
the highest court is "a big
deal," he added, declaring
that, "America has changed
for the better with her selec-
tion."
The solid Republican vote
against Sotomayor on the
Judiciary panel reflected the
choice many GOP conserva-
tives have made to side with
their core. supporters and
oppose a judge they charge
will bring liberal bias and
racial and gender prejudic-
es to her decisions. Others
in the party, however, are
concerned that doing so
could hurt their efforts to
broaden their base, and par-
ticularly alienate Hispanic
voters, a fast-growing seg-
ment of the electorate.
Democrats, for their
part, are lining up solidly in
favor of the 55-year-old fed-
.eral appeals court judge, the
daughter of Puerto Rican
parents who was raised in a


South Bronx housing proj-
ect and educated in the Ivy
League.
"There's not one exam-
ple - let alone a pattern
- of her ruling based on-
bias or prejudice or sym-
pathy," said Sen. Patrick
Leahy, D-Vt., the Judiciary
Committee chairman. "She
has administered justice
without favoring one group
of persons over another."
The senior Republican,
Sen. Jeff Sessions of
Alabama, countered that
Sotomayor's speeches and
a few of her rulings show
she would let her opinions
interfere in decisions.
"In speech after speech,
year after year, Judge
Sotomayor set forth a fully
formed, I, believe, judicial
philosophy that conflicts
with the great American tra-
dition of blind justice and
fidelity to the law as writ-
ten," Sessions said.


"...We can see you today

Childress says Favre wonft return


Vikings coach
confirms QB's
retirement is final.
By JON KRAWCZYNSKI
Associated Press
'MINNEAPOLIS - Brett
Favre has handed the
Minnesota Vikings one
more loss.
The 39-year-old Favre
called Vikings coach Brad
Childress on Tuesday to
tell the coach he won't be
coming out of retirement to
play for Minnesota.


"It was the hardest deci-
sion I've ever made," Favre
told ESPN. "I didn't feel
like physically I could play
. at a level that. was accept-
able. I would like to thank
everyone, including the
Packers, Jets and Vikings
- but, most importantly,
the fans."
The decision, which was
first reported by the Star
Tribune of Minneapolis,
is a stunning blow for the
Vikings after they openly
courted Favre all summer.
Adding Favre would have
been viewed by many as the


final piece for a team that
already has star running
back Adrian Peterson and a
stingy veteran defense that
returns nearly intact from
last year's NFC North title
season.
"It was a rare and unique
opportunity to consider
adding not only a future
Hall of Fame quarterback
but one that is very familiar
with our system and divi-
sion," Childress said in a
prepared statement. "That
does not detract from the
team that we have."

up even more debate about the high-tech
bodysuits that are being banned by the

Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford is shown during Big
12 Media Day in Irving, Texas, on Tuesday.


Heisman winner

returns to Big 12


Bradford back
for another title
shot at OU.
By STEPHEN HAWKINS
Associated Press
IRVING, Texas - Sam
Bradford found it tough as
a teenage Oklahoma fan
to watch the Sooners los-
ing national championship
games.
- As a Heisman Trophy-
winning quarterback, it
was an even tougher to
to be part of Oklahoma's
latest national title game
loss.
"It's all you think about,
it's all you dream about,
and to have the opportu-
nity to play for a national
championship and come
up short, it's not a good
feeling to have," Bradford
said Tuesday at Big 12
media days.
After passing up a
chance to enter the NFL
draft after his sophomore
season, which ended in
January with a 24-14 loss to
Florida in the BCS cham-
pionship game, Bradford
is back for another chance
to win the trophy he really
wants.
"That would mean the
world to me," he said.
The Sooners have won
the last three Big 12 titles.


But their last national
championship was in 2000.
They are 0-3 in title games
since - twice (2003-04)
with Bradford watching
and still dreaming of being
their quarterback, then
last season when he threw
for, a school-record 4,720
yards and NCAA-best 50
touchdowns.
. Coach Bob Stoops
knows it will be hard for
Bradford to improve on
those numbers.
"But hopefully with a
better defense, you don't
have to," Stoops said. "It's
doing what you need to do
and manage the game to
win, be consistent like he
has been. ... Remind him
you're not Superman. You
don't need to remind Sam
of that He plays within the
system."
The Sooners return
seven defenders who
started every game last
season, and three more
who started at least five
games.
Still, the focus is on the
offensive changes, includ-
ing the loss of four offen-
sive linemen and a trio
of receivers - Juaquin
Iglesias, Manuel Johnson
and Quentin Chaney -
who combined for half of
Bradford's passing yards

"It's going to be fun

Biedermann relished
his win but acknowledged
that he had a technological
edge.

German said. "I hope there
will be a time when I can

out these suits. I hope

Biedermann's upset

the 50 breaststroke, a non-
Olympic event.
But Biedermann's win
- and Phelps' loss - stood
out on a warm summer
night at the Foro Italico.
Biedermann said after
his 400 free win that the suit
made him two seconds fast-
er, but Phelps passed on the
chance to wear one of the
latest-generation suits. He's
been sponsored by Speedo
since he was a teenager and.
wasn't about to abandon the
company that paid him a $1
million bonus after he won
eight gold medals at the
Beijing Olympics.
Shortly before the race,
FINA confirmed that a ban
on bodysuits will go into
effect by May 2010, making
this the last major competi-
tion where buoyancy aiding
suits are allowed.
"It's not my problem,"
Biedermann said. "It's the
problem of FINA. They
should handle it really fast."
They'd better if they
want Phelps around. His
coach, Bob Bowman, said
he might just withhold the
sport's star attraction from
any meets until the new
rules are implemented.
"We've lost all the history
of the sport," Bowman said.
"Does a 10-year-old boy in
Baltimore want to break
Paul Biedermann's record?
Is that going to make him
join swimming?"

When told of FINA's time-

scoffed.
"Well, then probably

surged into the lead by

extended his advantage.

Phelps.
"Biedermann just took
off," Phelps said. "He took
it to a new level in that

While Biedermann cel-
ebrated his time of 1 min-
ute, 42.00 seconds, which
knocked off Phelps' world

American stared at the

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS WEDNESDAY, JULY 29, 2009


Woods ramps


up play heading 1

for homestretch


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

Barring any scheduling
surprises, Tiger Woods
is about to try something
new.
He had played three
weeks in a row on the PGA
Tour in every season since
he was a rookie - includ-
ing a career-high five
straight weeks in early 1999
- until last year, when two
knee surgeries crimped his
schedule.
That third consecutive
tournament, however, has
never been a major.
This year looks like it will
be different. Woods, decid-
id to play this week at the
Buick Open, where he is
a two-time winner and has
never finished worse than
11th in eight previous starts
at Warwick Hills.
Next week is the
Bridgestone Invitational,
and while Woods has yet
to make that official, he has
never missed a World Golf
Championship in America
when he wasn't on crutch-
es. Besides, he is a six-time
winner at Firestone, one of
his favorite golf courses.
Then it's off to Hazeltine
for the PGA Championship,
his last shot at winning a
major this year.
That he chose to. play the
Buick Open was only a mild
surprise. Woods likes the
golf course, and although
he ended a decade-old
endorsement contract one
year early because of the
economy, there remains
a sense of loyalty to his
longtime relationship with
Buick.
"We've had a great rela-
tionship with Tiger for nine
years, and this is his way of
showing that," said Larry
Peck, Buick-GMC's nation-
al promotions manager. "He
provides such a lift."
Woods didn't offer much
insight on his Web site, say-
ing only that he was looking
forward to the Buick Open
and "the golf course suits
my eye," a loose translation
for "I see myself winning."
What his appearance at
Warwick Hills should not
suggest is any sense. of
panic.
Woods has not played
more than two weeks in
a row since returning
from reconstructive knee
surgery. Even though he
is leading the PGA Tour
money list by more than
$500,000 and his three vic-
tories are more than any-
one else, he has played only
10 times this year.
Some have suggested he
needs to play more.
Then there was his
last tournament, nothing
short of a disaster. Woods
played a six-hole stretch
at Turnberry in 7-over-par
and wound up missing the
cut in the British Open by
one shot, only his second
missed cut in a major and
his first weekend off in
three years.
Swing coach Hank Haney


worked with him last week
in Florida, then offered a
self-deprecating assess-
ment as he headed to the
airport.
"He's doing really good,"
Haney said. "He had a bad
tournament, and I'm get-
ting fired."
He has been working
with Woods for more than
five years and knows what
kind of scrutiny to expect.
He was on the range at
Augusta National when
Woods vented about how
poorly he was hitting the
ball, and speculation soon
shifted to Haney being
shown the door.
Haney looks more at the
big picture.
Woods hit the ball great
at the Memorial, then final-
ly got some putts to fall
on the final day to shoot
65 and win. He hit it just
as well at Bethpage Black
and never got anything to
drop at the U.S. Open. And
he continued to play well
at Congressional, where
Woods won a duel with
Anthony Kim to capture his
AT&T National.
Turnberry was a sur-
prise, nothing more.
"There wasn't cause for
that much alarm," Haney
said. "He's played so well, it
was a little easier to brush
off."
Even so, there is a sense
of urgency this time of the
year.
Woods is at the halfway
point of his schedule - that
includes The Presidents
Cup, tournaments in Asia
and Australia, and his
Chevron World Challenge
in December - but he
has only two months left in
the meat of the PGA Tour
schedule.
.And there is only one
major left.
Woods rarely plays the
week before a major, but
there has always been an
exception or two for the
PGA Championship. He
has played five times the
week before the PGA
Championship, and in 2007
won at Firestone by eight
shots before winning the
PGA at Southern Hills.
The last time he played
three in a row?
That was during the inau-
gural year of the FedEx Cup
in 2007, when Woods tied
for second at the Deutsche
Bank Championship,
then won the BMW
Championship and the Tour
Championship.
He has played at least
three straightweeks 21 times
in his career, and twice won
all three events (Disney,
Tour Championship and
American Express at the
end of 1999; and the PGA
Championship, Firestone
and Deutsche Bank in
2006).
Whether he can win
three in a row this time will
be as trivial as the other two
streaks.
What people will remem-
ber is whether Woods wins
the last one.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Florida quarterback Tim Tebow autographs a Sports Illustrated magazine for Maj. Dillard Jones (right), of Columbia
Correctional Institution, Tuesday afternoon while visiting prisoners at the Corrections Corporation of America facility in Lake
City. Story on page 1A.

reasons," Favre said. "They
were telling me, You went
through all this, you had
the surgery and you've got
to finish it off.' But I have
legitimate reasons for my
decision. I'm 39 with a lot
of sacks to my name."
Now Childress has some
damage control to do with
Tarvaris Jackson and Sage
Rosenfels, the two veterans
who were expected to com-
pete for the job before the
latest Favre drama began.
Jackson and Rosenfels
were peppered with ques-
tions about Favre during
the team's minicamps this
summer.
It already was a testy
situation for them to deal
with, and now they will
likely face a whole new set
of inquiries with the job up
for grabs again.'


Jackson's agent, Joel
Segal, said he spoke to
his client shortly after the
news broke.
"He was his usual cool,
calm and collected self,"
Segal said. "He said, 'Great,
let's get ready for camp."'
Favre holds almost every
NFL career passing record
that matters, including
touchdown passes (464),
completions (5,720), yards
passing (65,127), regular-
season victories (169) and
interceptions (310).
Many thought he could
help the Vikings land
that elusive Super Bowl
championship, even if he
was reviled by fans here
during his incredible run
across the state line in
Wisconsin.
Favre instead passed on
a chance for revenge on


GM Ted Thompson and the
Packers, whom he felt gave
up on him too soon when
deciding to move forward
last summer with quarter-
back Aaron Rodgers. He
was sent instead to the Jets,
where he appeared reju-
venated early in the sea-
son' before arm problems
arose. He threw nine inter-
ceptions in the final five
weeks and the Jets finished
the year 1-4 to miss the
playoffs.
Vikings players will
begin arriving in Mankato
for training camp on
Wednesday, with a man-
datory reporting day of
Thursday and the first
practice on Friday.
Childress has said he
believes the Vikings will
be good with or without
Favre.


"As we have consistent-
ly communicated, we feel
good about our team and
they have put forth a tre-
mendous effort this offsea-
son preparing for the sea-
son ahead," he said. 'With
this behind us, we look for-
ward to getting to Mankato
and getting training camp
under way."
Of course, this is Favre,
which mdans there always
could be the possibility that
he will change his mind. As
far as Leber is concerned,
however, there's no turn-
ing back now.
"In my mind this should
be the end of it," he said.
"To be respectful of the
players that are involved
and the team as a whole,
you have to put an--end
to this and .you can't let it
linger on."

Plumbing Tip No. 172:
One of the most common causes of
water damage is a broken washing
machine hose. Most rubber supply
hoses are not meant to withstand
constant water pressure and can burst,
so the emergency shut off valves to
your washing machine should be shut
off when the washing machine is not in
use - and especially when you will not
be home for an extended period.

HAGARTHE HORRIBLE


DEAR ABBY


Sister's generosity is tainted

by way she earns her living


DEAR ABBY: Two
years ago my younger sis-
ter, "Cilia," generously set
up college funds for my
three children. Each of the
accounts has more than
$25,000. My husband and I
were stunned, but Cilla in-
sisted she is making good
money in the film industry
and wanted to do this for
my family.
Three months ago, she
came to visit, and through
a bizarre turn of events, I
discovered that she makes
her living starring in adult
films. Now that I know how
Cilla earns her living, I am
no longer comfortable ac-
cepting her gifts - especial-
ly the college funds for the
children.
This has caused prob-
lems between my husband
and me. He thinks we
should keep the money be-
cause we may-not be able to
afford three college tuitions
on our own. Abby, I don't
want my sister's sexual ex-
ploits paying for our kids'
education.
Should we return the
money? And if we do, is it
possible to do it without
causing a rift between my
sister and me? - G-RATED
SISTER IN SAN DIEGO
DEAR SISTER: I doubt
it. If you refuse her gener-

osity, it will appear that you
are rejecting her. Nor do I
think your children should
be penalized because you
don't approve of Cilla's life-
style. Your .husband is be-
ing pragmatic; you are be-
ing emotional. That money
has already been earned.
You're not going to change
your sister. You may not
approve, but love her for
the generous and caring
aunt she is trying to be and
let the money be used for
something positive.
DEAR ABBY: My let-
ter to you is the first time
I have shared my problem
with anyone. When I met
and married my husband of
30 years, we each had been
divorced for more than 10
years. He had adult chil-
dren with families of their
own; I had none.
For several years I ac-
knowledged their special
occasions with cards and
small gifts, never receiving
any notice or thank you un-
less I had my husband ask


if they had-been received. I
finally stopped.
Although they always
celebrate their father's
special days, I have yet to
be remembered on mine.
They send any special news
or pictures addressed only
to my husband.
I recognize I cannot
change the situation, but
my question is how do I
manage my growing resent-
ment toward not only his
faniily but my husband as
well? As you can guess, we
are elderly. I don't want to
spend my last years feeling
this bitterness. - WANTS
PEACE OF MIND
DEAR WANTS: Obvi-
ously your husband's chil-
dren never really accepted
you as part of their father's
life - and he didn't rock
the boat. It's a shame that
you waited 30 years to say
what's on your mind. If. you
hadn't, your husband might
have stood up and insisted
that "the kids" show you
some respect and courtesy.
Bitterness is a waste of
time. If your marriage has
been a happy one, dwell on
that instead of nursing re-
sentment

Missy worked in Bryan's
custom home building
business before obtaining
her real estate sales license
in 2007.
'"The bottom line is
you are working hard for
everything you get," Missy
says. '"There are buyers
out there, but you have to
have a strong work ethic
to make the sale. You have
to work every lead and you
have to work hard."
Bryan says he has
worked in the building
industry since he was big
enough to swing a hammer
and drive a nail. A Lake
City native, Bryan gradu-
ated from Columbia High
School in 1988.
"I've done everything in
the business," Bryan says.
"I've done remodeling, odd
jobs, I've learned the trade
since I was a kid. In 1992, I
got my contractor's license
and I started my own busi-
ness in 1993."
Custom homes now
are Bryan Zecher
Construction's fort&.
"We build starter
homes up to million-dol-
lar homes," Bryan says.
"Custom means we build
it to your specs, whatever

Bryan and Missy Zecher own and operate Bryan Zecher Construction in Lake City. Missy Zecher also is a licensed real estate
agent with ReMax. Both say hard work and great customer service are the key to small-business success.


you want, in any size you
want."
Bryan currently serves
as president of the
Columbia County Builders'
Association. His business
is the exclusive local fran-
chise of Arthur Rutenberg
Homes, which he builds at
The Oaks of Lake City.
Bryan says the thrill of
seeing a project develop
from an idea to a com-
pleted home is the most
exciting thing about his
business.
"I enjoy being outside on
the job and I enjoy working
with my hands and being
creative," Brian says. "I
love to see a custom home
project go from scraping
the grass to handing the


owner the key."
And ift's never been bor-
ing in the custom home
building business.
"Homes go together in
different stages, so it's not
monotonous," he says. "I
remember the first home
we built out off Price
Creek Road and the sense
of accomplishment in
being a general contractor,
having everything come
together, and then selling
the house. It was a great
feeling."
Bryan says his experi-
ence as a laborer is a ben-
efit to his customers.
"I have had experience
doing the work myself,"
Bryan says. "I can see
the project come together


and I can be there to get
involved when I'm needed.
I have used the same sub-
contractors for years and
they do quality work. Our
customers get the exper-
tise that I'm the project
manager on site and I am
hands-on.
"We're not a production
builder. We're a true cus-
tom home builder. We have
numerous plans for people
to look at and decide what
they want."
Bryan Zecher
Construction also builds
light commercial struc-
tures. His credits include
churches, professional
offices, an-assisted living
facility and small restau-
rant buildings.


Besides selling real
estate, Missy Zecher is
also a certified distressed
property expert, which
means she is trained to
help.consumers avoid
home foreclosure.
"Being in the housing
industry with Bryan helped
me with inside knowledge'
about the business that has
helped me as a real estate
agent," Missy says. "You
have to educate buyers and
sellers about where the
market is and what's going
on. If you list too high, a
house will sit. I also work
very hard with local lend-
ers and title companies to
make a difference. We try
to support businesses in
our community."


Missy says the real
estate market is showing
signs of improving.
'The market is defi-
nitely picking up in certain
price ranges," she says.
"Anything priced under
$200,000 is moving well.
Good deals are selling."
Bryan and Missy both
say hard work and taking
care of the customer is the
key to continued business
success. They say some-
times working together
and having their two sons
spend time at their office
allows them to share this
work ethic as a family.
"If you have tenacity and
you are not afraid to work,
you will make it in the real
estate business," Missy
says.
Bryan and Missy Zecher
say they utilize the mar-
keting power of the Lake
City'Reporter because they
believe in a consistent print
advertising campaign.
"We get great response
from the Lake City
Reporters HomeSeller
magazine," Missy says.
"It's delivered in the
newspaper and people see
it. I also like the special
promotions the Lake City
Reporter does. People see
our ads. I find these very
effective."
'The name recognition
and consistent marketing
in the Lake City Reporter
keeps us on people's
minds," Bryan says. "You
have to have a consistent
advertising presence and
we get that in the newspa-
per."
