Columbia County state's first to earn distinction

was named
Florida's first
"Six Pillar
Community"
during a Florida Chamber
Foundation press confer-
ence Friday.
The press conferencewas
held at the Columbia High
School Career Center with
several county Industrial
Development Authority
board members, local offi-
cials and Columbia County

representatives on hand.
Jim Poole, Columbia
County Economic
Development Department
executive director, said it's
exciting to know the coun-
ty's partners at the state
level believe the county is
moving in the right direc-
tion.
"This is really impor-
tant because of our new
governor and the direction
he wants to take and work
with communities that are
working and ready to move
forward in economic devel-
opment," he said. "I think
we'll be recognized because
of the fact that we are get-
ting ready. We are competi-
tive and we are determined
to make Columbia County
better for our citizens in
the future."

Jane Adams gives some background about the Six Pillars,
which includes talent supply and education, innovation and
economic development, infrastructure and growth leadership,
business climate and competitiveness; civil and governance
systems, and quality of life and quality places.


thing for local businesses is
that, as part of this concept,
officials will focus on infra-
structure that's necessary
to provide steady growth
for existing companies and
in recruiting new compa-
nies.
He said he next step is
organize the county's eco-
nomic department advisory


board, then organize three
working groups to focus
on the county's top three
priority sites for develop-
ment: Ellisville, the inland
port site and the Interstate
10/US Highway 41/441
corridor.
In order to become a
"Six Pillar Community",
a municipality must com-


plete a 10-step process
focused around the Six
Pillars of Florida's Future
framework. The framework
serves as an organizing
force for strategic planning
at the local, regional and
state levels.
The Six. Pillars of
Florida's Future Economy
is a concept the Florida
Chamber has adopted and
plans to employ to bring
prosperity and high-paying
jobs, vibrant communities
and global competitiveness
to Florida through strate-
gic planning.,
The six pillars are:
Talent supply and edu-
cation;
Innovation and eco-
nomic development;
Infrastructure and
growth leadership;
Business climate and
competitiveness;
Civic and governance
systems; and
Quality of Life and
quality places.
Jane Adams, Florida
Chamber Foundation
chairman and University
of Florida vice president
of university relations, said
the economic advantage of
being a six pillar commu-

With a shotgun start,

scramble tournament.
Each hole was sponsored


by local businesses or larg-
er sponsorships and prizes
were given for players who
made a hole-in-one on the
par-3 holes.
Teams who placed in

Johnson to speak at Oaklawn Memorial Ceremony


Will honor those
who were killed at
Battle of Olustee.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.comrn
Being selected to speak
at the annual Oaklawn
Cemetery Memorial
Ceremony is an honor, said


Wendell Johnson, City of
Lake City city manager.
The annual memorial
ceremony is 9 a.m. Feb.
18.
The ceremony is a tribute
to the soldiers who fought
and died in the Battle of
Olustee. There are more
than 100 soliders buried at
the gravesite.
This is Johnson's second


year attend-
ing the cer-
emony.
"I feel
very privi-


;-. -
..


leged to be
a part of
that, and Johnson
I'm glad I
was chosen for it," he said.
"I will do my very best to
give respect to the patrio-


tism of what happened at
the Olustee Battle."
Johnson was appointed
city manager July 6, 2009.
He is a native of
Bainbridge, Ga., and he
and his wife, Diane, have
two children and seven
grandchildren.
Johnson is a Vietnam
veteran. He retired in
1989 as a Senior Master


Sergeant after 20 years
of service in the United
States Air Force.
Boys and men buried at
the cemetery fought for
a cause they believed in,
he said. The program is
another way the Olustee
Festival honors the
descendents of those who
died in the battle.
The soldiers gave their


life for their own fami-
ly, whatever their cause,
Johnson said.
During the program, a
wreath will be placed at
the monument followed
by the playing of Taps.
"It's a most reverent
display of respect for the
men who fought for their
cause," he said.

911 caller: Sheen 'intoxicated'


LOS ANGELES
C harlie Sheen is back in
rehab and his hit CBS
TV sitcom, 'Two and a
Half Men," is on hold,
one day after a 911 caller
said the actor was intoxicated and
in pain.
According to a person familiar
with the emergency call Thursday, a
neighbor of Sheen's informed a 911
operator that the actor was "intoxi-
cated" and complaining of abdomi-
nal and chest pains.
The person familiar with the call,
who was not authorized to publicly
discuss details, spoke Friday on con-
dition of anonymity. A Los Angeles
Fire Department spokesman said
copies of the call probably won't be
ready for release by the department
until Monday.
The 45-year-old Sheen was treat-
ed at a hospital Thursday, with his
publicist citing the actor's history
of hernia problems. The publicist,
Stan Rosenfield, said Sheen volun-
tarily entered a rehabilitation center
Friday.

LAS VEGAS Pop singer Bruno
Mars is taking a plea deal in Las
Vegas to be allowed to pay a fine,

SOMERVILLE, N.J. An actress
who appeared on the original
"Melrose Place" has pleaded not
guilty to charges stemming from a
fatal car crash, in New Jersey last
year.
Thirty-nine-year-old Amy Locane-
Bovenizer of Hopewell faces
charges of aggravated manslaugh-
ter and assault by auto. Somerset
County prosecutors said Locane-
Bovenizer's SUV hit a car driven by
Fred Seeman of Montgomery as he
was turning into his driveway on
June 27. Seeman's wife, Helene, was
killed and he was seriously injured.


2 men get prison term
for $240M tax scheme
SEATTLE Two Seattle-area
men were sentenced Friday to
four years in prison for concoct-
ing a bogus tax shelter to help a
Hollywood mogul, the owner of the
New York Jets and other wealthy
clients avoid paying $240 million in
payments.
Jeffrey Greenstein, 48, was the
founder and chief executive of the
boutique investment firm Quellos
Group LLC, and Charles Wilk, 52,
was its tax attorney. They acknowl-
edged that they ran the tax shelter
from 1999 to 2006, to make it appear
that their clients' princely financial
windfalls were offset by losses from
offshore funds so no taxes would be
owed.

Anniversary of Challenger


accident draws hundreds


MARCIA DUNN
AP Aerospace Writer

CAPE CANAVERAL
- Hundreds gathered at
NASA's launch site Friday
to mark the 25th anniver-
sary of the Challenger
disaster, receiving words
of hope from the widow of
the space shuttle's com-
mander.
The chilly outdoor cer-
emony drew space agency.
managers, former astro-
nauts, past and present
launch directors, family
and friends of the fallen
crew and schoolchil-
dren who weren't yet born
when the space shuttle
carrying a high school
teacher from Concord,
N.H.; erupted in the sky.
The accident on Jan. 28,
1986 just 73 seconds
into flight killed all
seven on board, includ-
ing schoolteacher Christa
McAuliffe.
June Scobee Rodgers,
the widow of Challenger's
commander, Dick Scobee,
urged the crowd to "bold-
ly look to the future" not
only in space travel, but
in space and science edu-
cation. She was instru-
mental in establishing
the Challenger Center for
Space Science Education.
"The entire world knew
how the Challenger crew
died," she said. "We want-
ed the world to know how
they lived and for what
they were risking their
lives."
Rodgers and NASA's
space operations chief,
Bill Gerstenmaier, placed
a memorial wreath of red,
white and blue-tinted car-
nations at the base of the
Space Mirror Memorial.
The 42-foot-tall gleaming
mirrored slab of granite
bears the names of all 24
astronauts killed in the
line of duty over the years
- 17 of those in U.S.
spacecraft.
Dennis and Pat Cassidy
of Franklin, N.H., blink-
ed back tears as Rodgers
spoke. Pat Cassidy
recalled the joy she felt
when McAuliffe was
named as NASA's teacher
in space she screamed
she was so excited. When
Challenger was lost, she
couldn't stop crying.
"Geez. You never

bers when the Challenger exploded Just after launching 25
years ago Friday.


expected it to happen. We
never expect these kinds
of things to happen, I
guess," she said, clutch-
ing a red rose.
Her husband recalled
after the initial shock, feel-
ing so badly for McAuliffe's
family, all present at the
launch: her husband, two
children and her parents.
"All I could do was say a
prayer for the family. And
that's what they should do
today, say a prayer for the
families.",
The Cassidys, wintering
in Florida, made a point to
be at the.ceremony..,
So did Peggy Shecket,
who traveled from
Cleveland. Her dear friend
Judith Resnik was aboard
Challenger that freezing
morning. The two women,
back in the mid-1980s,
lived such different lives.
Shecket was a suburban
Ohio mom with two sons.
Resnik had become the
second American woman
in space. But their bond
was strong: Resnik invited
Shecket to the launch, and
she went.


A photo she took an
instant before the shuttle
exploded hangs on her
family room wall.
"I miss her terribly,"
Shecket said. "At this age,
in our 60s, we could have
gone to ladies' weekends
together. She probably
would have had time that
she didn't have 25 years
ago because she was so
busy."
Kathryn Serene drove
four hours from Savannah,
Ga., in the wee hours of
Friday to attend the 9 a.m.
ceremony. She brought a
homemade basket bearing
a paper model space shut-
tle, red, white and blue
silk flowers, and a large
red apple, which she left
at the base of the memo-
rial. She was in middle
school when the accident
occurred, and wanted
to show her respects all
'these years later.
Erik Volk hadn't been
born yet. Neither were his
fellow fifth-graders from
Espiritu Santo Catholic
School in Safety Harbor,
Fla., on the opposite coast.


The 60 students were
at an overnight space
camp Thursday, and the
chaperones rearranged
the schedule once they
learned of the ceremony.
"Remember the teach-
er? What I said about the
teacher?" prompted his
father, Joe Volk. "Yes. She
was going to give classes
from space," said the boy,
holding a yellow rose.
Erik, 10, said he was
there "to remember the
lives that were lost."
The crew included com-
mander Scobee; co-pilot
Michael Smith; Ellison
Onizuka, the first Asian-
American in space; Resnik;
Ronald McNair, the sec-
ond African-American
in space; McAuliffe; and
Gregory Jarvis.
Erik waited patiently in
a long line to place his
long-stemmed rose in the
white grated fence around
the memorial. Each guest
did the same following the
ceremony, and the fence
soon was adorned with
flowers.
At the high school in
Concord where McAuliffe
taught, special assem-
blies were held Friday in
her honor. Anniversary
events also took place
at Challenger Learning
Centers across the coun-
try.
This silver anniver-
sary comes as NASA is
winding down the space
shuttle program. The fleet
will be retired after three
more flights this year to
the International Space
Station.
Friday's speakers
stressed that exploration
will never be risk-free.
The Challenger astro-
nauts demonstrated that
painful truth so did the
lost crew of Columbia. But
they also showed "that we
can learn from our mis-
takes and be better for
them in the end," said
Robert Cabana, a former
shuttle commander who
now is the Kennedy Space
Center director.
"They continue to urge
us forward, to explore and
to never quit just because
it's hard," Cabana said.
"They are a part of us
forever, and we will not let
them down."

PILLAR: Columbia County honored

Continued From Page 1A


Columbia County is a very important part-
ner in the effort to chart Florida's future,"
Adams said. 'We're very excited about the
fact that we're bringing together a lot of
people to take a long term view of Florida,
not for four of five years down the road, but
for the year 2030. We need to have a strong
partnership with regions, counties, cities
and states and I think it's very exciting that
Columbia County is here first. It shows
hgw on the ball Columbia County is."
Local officials were introduced to the six
pillar concept last summer during an event
at Florida Gateway College where Florida
Chamber foundation officials spoke of the
importance of addressing the six areas and
making them the central focus for econom-
ic long term economic prosperity.
"The six pillar concept identifies the
areas in which we need to be strong in


order to realize our future," Adams said.
"It also provides the framework through
which organizations, regions and commu-
nities can all work together.
Suzanne Norris, Columbia County
Industrial Development Authority chair-
person, who accepted the plaque com-
memorating the six pillar honor on behalf
of the county, said she plans to give it to
county officials at a future commission
meeting.
"We're certainly honored to be repre-
sented as the first (six pillar) community,"
said Norris said. "I think it shows what our
community, when it comes together with a
vision, can accomplish. To be recognized
on a statewide level for this accomplish-
ment is really meaningful and it sets the
bar high for our community to continue
the work that we started here today."

Congress .

makes mess

of US space

program

N ASA was in limbo
for months last
year as differ-
ent factions in
Congress dead-
locked with each other and the
White House over the space
program's future.
They finally settled on a pol-
icy outlined in a law signed in
October by President Barack
Obama. It called for NASA to
abandon Constellation, the
moon-Mars program running
years behind schedule and bil-
lions of dollars over budget;
and design a new rocket for
manned exploration to launch
in 2016.
But recently the space agen-
cy's inspector general reported
that NASA is on track to waste
$215 million on Constellation
by March. Say what?
Blame Congress for not
repealing language in an ear-
lier law that forces the agency
to keep spending money on the
program. The language was
inserted into the 2010 budget
by Constellation backers who
wanted to preserve jobs and
contracts associated with the
program. It exemplified the
parochial priorities of lawmak-
ers who are more interested in
NASA as a cash cow for their
districts than as the agency
responsible for maintaining
America's leadership in space
exploration.
If Congress had carried out
its most basic responsibility
and passed a budget for 2011,
the 2010 language would have
expired. Instead, lawmak- 4
ers have extended last year's
budget until at least March.
Florida's senior U.S. senator,
Democrat Bill Nelson, has
introduced legislation that
would repeal the 2010 lan-
guage. Passage should be a top
priority, not just for advocates
of the new space policy, but for
anyone in Congress who can't
abide NASA or any other fed-
eral agency wasting so much
money.
Is it really too much to ask
that Congress and NASA be in
the same solar system when it
comes to space policy?

No more debt till spending is cut


The Republican take
from President
Obama's State of
the Union address
should be unwaver-
ing opposition to an uncondi-
tional increase in the U.S. debt
limit.
The statutory debt ceiling of
$14.3 trillion dollars will soon
be reached. Republicans should
oppose increasing it to permit
more borrowing without mean-
ingful spending cuts as part of
the deal.
The vision that the President
presented to the nation in his
speech, that we need more gov-
ernment, a lot more, to address
the challenges before us, shows
he sees the world no differently
than he did when he entered
office two years ago.
He's added a trillion dollars,
almost a 40 percent increase,
to federal government spend-
ing over this time. The federal
government's take from our
economy has increased from
one dollar out of every five to
one dollar out of every four.
Aside from the point of princi-
ple that with every incremental
increase in the scope of govern-
ment there is a corresponding
decrease in the freedom of
every citizen, there is also no
practical argument to justify this
vast government takeover.
Unemployment has hardly
budged and the economy,
although recovering, remains
sluggish.
This economic machine clear-
ly needs an oil change and a
different kind of fuel. The presi-
dent .clearly doesn't see things
this way. Republicans need to
offer a clear alternative and let
the American people choose.


LETTERS TO

Saying thanks to law
enforcement officers
I guess I'll get this letter to
the editor finished. The
subject has been annoy-
ing'me for some time,
and each time I note
another incident in the news
that reminds me of the subject,.
I intend to follow through with
it.
What has happened to the
respect for our law enforce-
ment? Case after case I see
when the officer is doing his
duty and has to use force of one
kind or another, he immediately
is criticized. Then, even his
superiors "put him on leave"
while they "investigate."
I would think that their "boss"
at least would know that there
are times when extra "force,"
including use of guns, is need-
ed.
There are individuals who
will not heed an officer's orders
no matter how easy it would be
to do. "STOP" iA top of the list.


Star Parker
parker@urbancure.org
If Republicans offer a bold
alternative to seize control from
politicians and bureaucrats and
return power and freedom to
citizens, they can bet on public
support.
Only 31 percent of Americans
in a recent Gallup poll say they
are "satisfied" with the "size and
power of the federal govern-
ment." That's down 10 points
from just two years ago and
down twenty points from ten
years ago.
Certainly it's true that when
we get down to the details of
what to cut, even many who
know that government has got-
ten out of hand push back when
programs they are used to are
put on the block.
This is where leadership
comes into the picture.
Just consider our last one
term Democrat president Jimmy
Carter.
He became president at a
time of economic crisis in the
1970's and his presidency was
defined by the vision that we
needed more government to
solve our problems.
Carter created two new
departments the Department
of Energy in 1977 and the
Department of Education in
1979.
The, Energy Department was
created in response to the so-
called "energy crisis". Its annual

budget has consumed over $600
billion since it was created and
none of this can be associated
with production of one new bar-'
rel of oil, one new ton of coal,
or one new cubic foot of natural
gas.
Yet, a good portion of
Obama's speech focused on
proposed new government
energy programs. The Energy
Department will spend about
$40 billion in 2010, up 70 per-
cent from 2009.
Since 1970, federal govern-
ment education spending per
student has tripled with hardly
any impact on test scores.
Since inception, the
Department of Education has
spent almost a trillion dol-
lars with negligible impact on
improving our children's edu-
cation. It spent $100 billion in
2010, up 67 percent from 2009.
Yet, central to the President's
education message is more fed-
eral dollars.
Republicans must stand firm
on their proposed minimum of
$100 billion in spending cuts
- a paltry three percent of
the federal budget before
agreeing to raise the debt ceil-
ing. This could be easily pulled
from the Energy and Education
Departments alone.
We've got to decide if the
center of gravity of our nation
has shifted to government and
bureaucrats or if we can get it
back to individuals and families.
This is the choice .Republicans
need to make clear.

Sorry, Jake! It seems I greatly

Inasmuch as I had not heard

Simple

solution


for public


schools


In the never ending
yammer about how
to improve the public
schools, two of the more
controversial because
they most concern parents are
class size and time spent there.
Florida legislators seemed to
think they had a solution to
the first when the passed a law
mandating classroom size limi-
tations.
Traditionally taught high
school classes can have no
more than 25 students in core
subjects like math or English
while fourth grade through the
eighth the class size is limited
to 22. That's reduced to 18 for
pre-kindergarten through the
third grade. Well, it seemed
like a good idea at the time,
but as always there are some
unintended consequences, espe-
cially at the high school level.
In any number of courses, the
class size can expand dramati-
cally in E-learning laboratories
where there is only a computer
and no teacher except for a
monitor who keeps order and
can troubleshoot electronic
problems. Some experts tell us
that this approach has a great
advantage, but others aren't
quite so sure. Many parents
and not a few students who
found themselves relegated to
the labs charge they have been
put there whether they wanted
to be or not. National educa-
tors, of course, are watching
this experiment closely for its
possible application elsewhere.
But Florida school administra-
tors contend that the labs are
the only way to meet the man-
dated class sizes in major high
schools.
At the same time time
being the operative word here
parents, teachers and school
administrators are once again
arguing over the question of
how much more of it should
be spent in the confines of the
classroom. It's a debate nearly
as old as the school system
itself with academics insistent
that those youngsters who can't
afford or don't want to endure
the steadily increasing costs of
a fancy private school would
benefit enormously from short-
er summer breaks and longer.
days.
Nothing is easy when it
comes to the public schools. At
the secondary level, it is a well-
documented fact that permit-
ting teenagers to sleep an hour
longer in the morning vastly
improves their success rate,
especially among boys who
frequently get their growth later
than girls and need more sleep.
But almost every time moving
the daily starting hour forward,
it causes a storm of protest
from parents and teachers so
much for a perfectly easy solu-
tion.
It seems to me there is
another way to limit class size
without legislative fiat. That is
simply recognizing once and
for all that boys and girls learn
at different paces and deal with
different biological influences
and should be taught separately
at least through the eighth
grade if not high school.
That is unlikely to occur in
any meaningful way for about
the same reasons as all the
other simple solutions.

Thousands mourn two



officers slain by fugitive


TAMARA LUSH
Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG As
thousands of police officers
and mourners looked on,
the widows of two officers
who were killed in the line
of duty were gently handed
flags that draped their hus-
bands' caskets on Friday.
Joint funeral services
for St. Petersburg Police
Sgt. Thomas Baitinger and
Officer Jeffrey Yaslowitz
lasted three hours.
The two officers were
shot and killed by a fugitive
while helping serve a war-
rant Monday. The fugitive,
Hydra Lacy Jr., died during
the shootout.
The officers' colleagues
talked about how the kill-
ings have shaken the force.
Some, like St. Petersburg
Police Maj. Michael
Kovacsev, have investigated
countless homicides yet
this tragedy has affected
them profoundly.
"I am out of tears," said
Major Michael Kovacsev.
"It's hurting beyond
words."
St. Petersburg Mayor Bill
Foster spoke at the service,
along with several friends
of the two men.
"I'm still angry at this
incident," said Police Chief
Chuck Harmon. "Hydra
Lacy took a piece of me,
two pieces of me. As far as


I'm concerned, he got off
too easily."
There were signs of
mourning throughout the
Gulf Coast city. Businesses
wrote condolences on bill-
boards, a local TV station
carried the entire funeral
service live and some resi-
dents attended in person.
"I watched it unfold on
Monday," said 53-year-
old David Sharpe of St.
Petersburg, who didn't
know the men but attended
the service. "I may be just
one more face in the crowd
but I was in search of words
of inspiration."
Many wanted to express
their appreciation for the
officers and their families.
"I feel like it was impor-
tant to show support for
the police," said Priscilla
Jenkins, 31, who watched
the funeral from the church
parking lot, where big-
screen televisions broad-
cast the ceremony inside.
Jenkins brought her 4-year-
old son so she could teach
him a lesson to "respect
authority and to be a good
person."
After the service, a heli-
copter formation flew over
the church as honor guard
officers carried the two
flag-draped caskets into a
courtyard. A 21-gun salute,
a bugler playing 'Taps"
and the release of white
doves ended the somber


ceremony.
Yaslowitz, a 38-year-old
K-9 officer who had quali-
fied for SWAT duty, leaves
behind a wife; two sons,
ages 12 and 5; and his 8-
year-old daughter. He was
an 11-year veteran of the
force who loved major
.league baseball's Boston
Red Sox.
His wife, Lorraine
Yaslowitz, gave an inter-
view Thursday morning on
WFLZ-FM's MJ Morning
Show radio program with
host Todd "MJ" Schnitt.
Lorraine Yaslowitz, a kin-
dergarten teacher, was
pulled out of her classroom
when the shootings hap-
pened and driven to the
hospital, where her hus-
band was pronounced
dead.
"I talk to him all the
time," she told the station.
"I miss him and I love him
more than anyone can love
a human being."


She said the last time
she and her children saw
him, Yaslowitz fired up the
emergency lights on his
St. Petersburg police SUV
so his wife and son could
watch from inside.
Baitinger, a 48-year-old
Wisconsin native, started his
law enforcement career in
that state before joining the
St. Petersburg department
in 1996. He was remem-
bered as a caring supervi-
sor and good friend with
a quirky sense of humor.
He was an enthusiastic
Green Bay Packers fan and
was celebrating their win
in Sunday's NFL playoff
game. He is survived by
his wife.
The killings are the latest
in a series of law enforce-
ment deaths in Florida. Two
officers in Miami were killed
by a murder suspect earlier
this month. And two Tampa
officers were killed last July
while making a traffic stop.

BIBLICAL MEDITATION

Whywe

should

believe

in Jesus

By Luke's own
admission
there had been
many undertak-
ings to "com-
pile an account" of the life
of Jesus and "the things
accomplished among
us" (Luke 1:1). So why
write his own version to
Theophilus? Why another
biography?
Theophilus, an individual
who was a lover of God,
had been taught the things
about Jesus. Luke wanted
to give Theophilus a writ-
ten record of those things
so he would know "the
exact truth" about them.
He wanted this Christian
to have a written reference
so he could "know" (Luke
When Theophilus had
ients of doubt about
what he had been taught,
he could refer back to this
biography of Jesus by Luke
and "remember" what he
had learned.
Using the skills he
learned in his training to
be a physician (Colossians
4:14), Luke "investigated
everything carefully" (Luke
1:3) before he began to
write his biography of
Jesus. He investigated
those who had been "eye-
witnesses" to the events
in the life of Jesus. He
also investigated those
who were "servants of the
word" (Luke 1:2). These
may have included such
people as John the apostle,
Matthew the apostle and
former tax collector, Mary
the moth-" of Jesus, as well
as many iore. Luke went
back to the "beginning"
with his investigation and
wrote out the events in
"cons cutive 'order."
This "gospel of Luke"
g'ves us an example that
we do Aot have to be able
to talk with those who had
"first-hand information" to
know the exact truth about
the life of Jesus. We can
rely on the investigation of
others for "the exact truth"
about how Jesus lived
His life, the things He did
and taught, as well as His
~leath, burial, resurrection
and ascension into heaven.
I In this introduction to
his gospel, Luke gives us
1he reasons why he wanted
to write another biography
6f the life of Jesus. In the
process of writing this
biography, Luke gives us
reasons why Jesus should
be called the Christ, the
$avior of the world. He
also gives us reasons why
we should believe that the
child born of a virgin in
the city of Bethlehem, but
grew up in the despised
city of Nazareth, became
the acceptable sacrifice to
God for all of mankind.
If the stories and teach-
ings of Jesus found in
Luke's biography could
confirm the faith of
Theophilus, would it not
stand to reason that it
would develop our faith?
Can you think of a bet-
ter reason for why Luke
should write another biog-
raphy of Jesus?

9 Hawaii senators hold prayer


despite vote to end invocations


By MARK NIESSE
Associated Pres
HONOLULU

ators held hands, bowed
their heads and sought
God's blessing
Wednesday, signaling
that they'll still pray despite a vote
last week to abandon official invoca-
tions.
Fears of court challenges com-
pelled the state Senate to end
prayers, making it the first legisla-
tive body in the nation to do so.
The informal prayer Wednesday
took place in the Senate chamber
before the daily lawmaking session,
convened in such a way so as not to
contradict the decision to remove
invocations from Senate business.
"The message is that not all sena-
tors have eliminated prayer," said
Sen. Will Espero, who organized the
group. "We're well within the con-
fines of the law."
The 25-member Senate changed
its rules in a unanimous voice vote
last Thursday to end prayers after
the American Civil Liberties Unioin
sent lawmakers a letter complaining
that the invocations often referenced
Jesus Christ, contravening the sepa-
ration of church and state.
Senate leaders said they wanted
to avoid the potential for breaking
the law, but lawmakers who partici-
pated in the quiet prayer Wednesday
said their faith has a place in their
work.
"It's nice to start off the day with
a prayer because we need all the
help we can get," said Sen. Mike
Gabbard.
The ACLU of Hawaii declined to
comment Wednesday. The ACLU
previously has said the Senate's
action to remove prayers helps cre-
ate an environment where everyone

Chun Oakland, Michelle Kidani, Glenn Wakai, Clarence Nishihara, Mike Gabbard,
pray Wednesday in Honolulu. Espero organized the .event to show that the
Senate has not eliminated prayer even though it won't be a part of official pro-
ceedings.


feels welcome regardless of spiritual
beliefs.
Senate President Shan Tsutsui,
who did not participate in the prayer
session, said he condoned their
independent movement to keep
prayer alive.
"It's a matter of free speech," said
Tsutsui. "We do encourage mem-
bers, at their own will and desire, to
go ahead and engage in prayer."
He said prayers could be held in


the Senate in the future because the
chamber's rules are silent on the
issue following last week's vote.
The brief prayer asked God to
bless senators' choices and sought
guidance to do right for the people
they represent, said participant Sen.
Pohai Ryan.
"Government and faith should be
separate. But just because I voted
against it doesn't mean I'm not a
spiritual person," Ryan said.


BRIEFS

Santorum to join
Catholic event
BOSTON Possible
Republican presidential
contender Rick Santorum
is headlining a benefit for
a Massachusetts Catholic
group.
The former two-
term senator from
Pennsylvania will address
members of Catholic
Citizenship on Tuesday
in Newton.
Santorum is a favorite
of conservatives for his
staunch opposition to
abortion rights, which
the Roman Catholic
church also opposes.

Baptist leader
leaves coalition
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
A leader of the Southern
Baptist Convention has
withdrawn from a coali-
tion that supports the
rights of Muslims to
build mosques in their
communities.
- Richard -Land, the
head of the SBC's
Ethics and Religious
Liberty Commission,
said he heard from
many Southern Baptists
who felt the work of the
Interfaith Coalition on
Mosques crossed the
line from defending reli-
gious freedom to promot-
ing Islam.
"I don't agree with
that perception but it's
widespread and I have to
respect it," he told The
Associated Press.

Bible tells story of a jailer and a eunuch


dents
of the
Word are
familiar
with the story found in
Acts 16 of Paul and Silas
in prison. They had cast
out a demon from a slave
girl who had brought their
masters much profit by
her fortune telling. The
Bible says that when they
saw their profit was gone,
they seized Paul and Silas,
beat them badly and had
them thrown into prison
(16:23).
, The Bible tells us in
16:25 at midnight they
were praying and sing-
ing hymns to God. You
know the story of the "
earthquake that loosened
all the chain,. The jailer
awoke, suppusing that all
the prisoners were gone


BIBLE STUDY


Hugh Sherrill Jr.
ems-hugh43@comcast.net
and was about to kill him-
self, when the apostle Paul
cried with a loud voice "do
thyself no harm for we are
all here."
In Acts 16:30 the jailer
asked the question, the
only time this question is
asked and answered in the
Bible, "Sirs, what must I
do to be saved?"
Verse 31, they said,
"Believe on the Lord
Jesus Christ and you will


be saved and your house-
hold."
In Verse 32, then he
spoke the Word of the
Lord to them (the gospel).
The gospel (good news)
is that Jesus Christ paid
the price for their sins
(and ours) by dying on
the cross in their place
and was buried and rose
again the third day (1 Cor.
15:1-4).
Verse 33, they were bap-
tized because they were
saved not as a part of their
salvation.
In Acts 8:26-40 (please
read), I will paraphrase for
lack of space.
We find that an angel of
the Lord spoke to Philip
and told him to go down
to Gaza. There he found
an Ethiopian eunuch that
was in charge of Queen
Candace's treasure.


Candace had gone to the
temple to worship.
The eunuch was not
allowed in the temple.
The Spirit told Philip to go
to the chariot.
Philip heard the eunuch
reading from Isaiah 53
about the crucifixion of
Jesus.
Philip asked him if he
understood what he was
reading, and of course he
did not because a person
who does not know Christ
as their savior cannot
understand the scripture
(2 Cor. 4:3-4).
The Bible says Philip
(verse 35) opened his
mouth beginning at this
scripture (Isaiah 53) and
preached to him Jesus,
again the death, burial,
and resurrection.
I am sure that Philip
told him of the two ordi-


nances left for the church,
communion and baptism.
After Philip finished his
message about Jesus, the
eunuch wanted to be bap-
tized.
Philip told him in verse
37 "You may, if you believe
with all your heart" (whole
being). He was baptized
and went on his way
rejoicing.
Notice, neither of
these men was asked to
repent or asked to pray
a prayer, or to come for-
ward and accept Jesus,
or to ask Jesus into their
heart. They simply had to
believe.
So, to be saved one
only has to believe in the
finished work of Christ on
Calvary.

Be Strongand


Wben faced with a distasteful situation
there is often no choice but to take a deep

breath and swallow hard. It takes a lot of strength

to meet life's challenges. We can do so with hope

and faith if we have God's wisdom to guide us.

Obama urges Mubarak to take'concrete steps'


By MATTHEW LEE
and ERICA WERNER
Associated Press

WASHINGTON Stepping
up pressure on a stalwart but
flawed Middle East ally, President
Barack Obama said he person-
ally told Egypt's Hosni Mubarak
Friday night to take "concrete
steps" to expand rights inside the
Arab nation and refrain from vio-
lence against protesters flooding
the streets of Cairo and other cit-
ies. The White House suggested
U.S. aid could be at stake.
"Surely, there will be difficult
days to come, but the United
States will continue to stand up for
the rights of the Egyptian people
and work with their government
in pursuit of a future that is more
just, more free and more hope-
ful," Obama told reporters in the
State Dining Room after speaking
with the long-time leader from
the White House.
The president made his com-
ments on television shortly after
he and Mubarak spoke. The half-
hour phone call was initiated by
the White House.
The conversation between the
two leaders followed closely on
a middle-of-the-night TV speech
in which Mubarak, in Cairo,
announced he was sacking his
government to form a new one
that would accelerate reforms. At
the same time, he said, violence
by protesters would not be toler-
ated.
Obama's remarks capped a day
in which his administration strug-
gled to keep abreast of develop-
ments in Egypt, where Mubarak
ordered police and then the mili-
tary into the streets in response
to the thousands of protesters.
Before Obama spoke, White
House press secretary Robert
Gibbs announced the adminis-
tration might cut the $1.5 bil-

House in Washington on Friday.

lion in annual foreign aid sent to
Egypt, depending on Mubarak's
response to the demonstrations.
Obama also repeated demands
by Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton for Egypt's gov-
ernment to restore access to the
Internet and social media sites,
cut by the authorities in an appar-
ent attempt to limit the flow of
information about the protests
demanding an end to Mubarak's
rule.
Obama noted the United States
and Egypt have a close partner-
ship, a reference to Mubarak's
support over the years for peace
with Israel.
But he said, "We've also been
clear that there must be reform,
political, social and economic


reforms that meet the aspirations
of the Egyptian people."
"When President Mubarak
addressed the Egyptian people
tonight, he pledged a better
democracy and greater economic
opportunity. I just spoke to him
after his speech, and I told him
he has a responsibility to give
meaning to those words; to take
concrete steps and actions that
deliver on that promise," Obama
said. "Violence will not address
the grievances of the Egyptian
people, and suppressing ideas
never succeeds in making them
go away."
He added that the demon-
strators had a responsibility "to
express themselves peacefully.
Violence and destruction will not


lead to the reforms they seek."
Obama's decision to speak
about the crisis in Egypt under-
scored the enormous U.S. inter-
est at stake from Israel's secu-
rity to the importance of the Suez
Canal and the safety of thousands
of Americans who live and work
in Egypt.
Gibbs said Obama had been
briefed repeatedly during the day
about the events unfolding half a
world away.
The State Department issued
a warning for Americans to defer
all non-essential travel to Egypt.
Clinton said Mubarak should
seize the moment to enact the
long-called-for economic, politi-
cal and social reforms that the
protesters want. She said authori-


ties must respect the rights of
the Egyptian people to freedom
of speech, assembly and expres-
sion.
"We are deeply concerned
about the use of violence by
Egyptian police and security
forces against protesters, and we
call on the Egyptian government
to do everything in its power
to restrain the security forces,"
Clinton said.
She sidestepped a question
on whether the United States
believed Mubarak was finished,
but she said the U.S. wanted to
work as a partner with the coun-
try's people and government to
help realize reform in a peaceful
manner. That underscored con-
cerns that extremist elements
might seek to take advantage of a
political vacuum left by a sudden
change in leadership.
Asked about U.S. aid to Egypt,
Gibbs said the review would
include both military and civil-
ian assistance. Since Egypt made
peace with Israel in 1978, the U.S.
has plowed billions into the coun-
try to help it modernize its armed
forces, and to strengthen regional
security and stability. The U.S.
has provided Egypt with F-16 jet
fighters, as well as tanks, armored
personnel carriers, Apache heli-
copters, anti-aircraft missile batter-
ies, aerial surveillance aircraft and
other equipment
While the White House spokes-
man was emphatic in his calls for
Mubarak and his government to
abandon violence, he was less
forceful on other issues.
Asked about Mohamed
ElBaradei, a leading opposition fig-
ure who has been placed under
house arrest, he said, "This is an
individual who is a Nobel laure-
ate" and has worked with Obama.
"These are the type of actions that
the government has a responsibil-
ity to change."


Sedatives used to free whale from fishing line


By RAY HENRY "It's a big step for us," said
Associated Press Michael Moore, a senior
research specialist at the Woods
ATLANTA Researchers Hole Oceanographic Institution

The method was used Jan. 15 have tried different ways to save

rescue attempt this month shows They generally migrate season-
it survived, ally from the Lower Bay of Fundy


in Canada during the summer to
calving grounds off the Florida
coast in the fall and winter.
At least two North Atlantic
right whales are known to have
died from entanglement between
2005 to 2009, although 28 were
observed tangled in that same
period. Experts say those num-
bers only include dead or tangled
whales that have been spotted,
meaning other whales may die
unseen.
"It's a very slow, painful
death," said Michael Walsh,
associate director of the Aquatic
Animal Health Program at the
University of Florida. The
former SeaWorld veterinar-


ian helped develop the sedative
mixture.
Once tangled whales are
found, rescue teams generally
tie boats and buoys to lines trail-
ing from the animal to slow it
down and restrict its movement.
Crews then use pole-mounted
knives to cut off entangling
gear.
The techniques are imperfect.
Staying behind a whale'is safe for
humans, but it's difficult to reach
gear wrapped around the front of
the animal. Success rates, which
vary by species and tangle, are
low for right whales, especially
those with lines caught around
their flippers and jaws. When


boats get close, right whales tend
to flee or dive underwater.
"They're likely in a lot of dis-
comfort," said Jamison Smith,
who oversees the freeing of
large, tangled whales in the
Atlantic for the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration.
'"They don't want to be... harassed
by a small boat."
The idea of sedating whales
goes back to 1999 when NOAA
asked other scientists for help
freeing a badly tangled rightwhale
swimming off New England and
in the Canadian Bay of Fundy.
NOAA officials asked research-
ers whether it was possible to
give the animal antibiotics.

Casting Fisher aside


Titans make split
official after 16
NFL seasons.
By TERESA M. WALKER
Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn.
The atmosphere was so
cordial at the Titans' head-
quarters Friday it was hard
to tell Jeff Fisher that was
leaving the team.
He stood behind the
podium thanking every-
one in the building before
leaving with a wave.
Tennessee's top executives
expressed their gratitude
for his work over the years,
then discussed how they
will replace Fisher after
mutually agreeing they had
reached a point where "it
was time to move on" after
16 full seasons.
"It is just time for a
change," owner Bud Adams
,said Friday by telephone
from his Houston office.
Fisher declined to


address details, about the
decision, but acknowledged
some differences with the
team. He also looked much
more relaxed Friday morn-
ing than in weeks, calling it
the best decision after two
difficult seasons.
The Titans rebounded
from an 0-6 start to finish
8-8 in 2009, then wasted a
5-2 start in 2010 by losing
eight of the final 10 games
for a 6-10 record.
"I've been coaching for 24
years, and it's time. I need a
break," Fisher said. "And I
think timing-wise this is a
perfect opportunity to do
this so the organization can
move forward with their
plan, and I'll move forward
with whatever happens in
the future."
The team announced
the split Thursday night,
shocking players, assistant
coaches and the rest of
the NFL because Adams
announced three weeks
ago he'd decided to keep
Fisher for the final year of


TIGERS


Purple and Gold
Game set for
3:30 p.m. start.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High will debut
its 2011 baseball team today
as the Tigers are set to take
part in the annual Purple
and Gold Game at 3:30 p.m.
today.
First-year coach J.T.
Clark takes the reins for
the Tigers, replacing
coach Greg Gillman,
who spent a season with
Columbia.
Columbia returns
Zach Espenship, J.T.
Gilliam,- Dylan Alvey,
Mikey Kirkman, Kellan
Bailey, Andrew Nettles,
Ryan Thomas and Blaine
Courson from last year's
varsity squad.
Thomas and Gilliam
will be the starting pitch-
ers for the Purple and
Gold. Others expected to
pitch are Michael Craft,
Seth Thomas, Courson
and Nettles. Two junior
varsity pitchers, Brent
Stalter and Jayce Barber
may also make an
appearance.
"We'll have them on a
pitch count of about 40
pitches," Clark said. "Ryan
and J.T. may throw a little
longer."
The game will give Clark
a chance to evaluate the tal-


his contract. Adams said
teams and coaches unfortu-
nately almost always reach
a point where change is the
best option.
"I believe both the team
and Jeff will benefit in the
long run from this move.
Now I'm still confident
about our future. I think we
have good players. I believe
in Steve Underwood and
(general manager) Mike
Reinfeldt to find our next
head coach."
The search to replace
Fisher is already under
way, and the Titans'
general manager Mike
Reinfeldt and Underwood,
the senior executive vice
president, will handle the
process whose only time-
table is "as long as it takes."
Underwood said reports
of the coach's settlement
at $8 million were "erro-
neous" while declining to
answer questions about the
package.

ent, although he's familiar
with most of the players
after serving as an assistant
coach last season.
"We want a chance to see
the younger players play in
a live game with umpires,"
Clark said. "It'll give us a
chance to gauge where
we're at."
The game is scheduled
to go the full seven innings,


which is a full high school
game.
Clark expects the bats
to be on display during the
contest.
"Espenship is a phenom-
enal contact hitter," Clark
said. "Gilliam is a doubles
guy with home-run power.
Dylan Alvey, he's just got
raw power. It's all or noth-
ing. Kirkman's another


doubles guy, and we have
a kid named Jason Plynn
that will be our designated
hitter. I'm looking for big
things from him."
With the alumni on hand,
Clark hopes its an opportu-
nity for this year's Tigers to
learn something.
"We want to bring the
old Tigers back and hope
they pass along some wis-


dom to the young guys,"
he said. "We've got guys
like Michael Kirkman
(who plays for the Texas
Rangers) that the guys can
learn from."
The Tigers encourage
families to come out to the
game as admission is free.
There will be barbeque din-
ners available for purchase

FISHER: Been with team since 1994

Continued From Page 1B


Among the four major
U.S. sports, only Jerry
Sloan with the NBA's Utah
Jazz has been with the same
team longer than Fisher had
been with the Titans. Andy
Reid of Philadelphia now
takes over as the NFL's lon-
gest-tenured coach having
finished up his 12th season
with the Eagles.
Fisher, promoted from
defensive coordinator to
interim coach in 1994, guid-
ed the team's relocation from
Houston to Tennessee and
took the Titans to their lone
Super Bowl appearance. He
also had losing skids of at
least five games in five of the


last seven seasons.
He has coached more
NFL games for one fran-
chise than all but six Hall
of Famers: George Halas,
Tom Landry, Don Shula,
Chuck Noll, Curly Lambeau
and Bud Grant. He ranks
third among active coaches
in career wins with a record
of 147-126, behind only Bill
Belichick (176) and Mike
Shanahan (160), and he
is 20th in career coaching
victories.
He could coach again this
season. A team executive
noted that's up to Fisher,
but the coach wouldn't
speculate when asked if he


might work on television
for a season.
"I think I need the rest.
Those that coach 10 years
that take a year off are
three times better coaches
... in year 11. I'm going to
take time," Fisher said.
Reinfeldt noted Fisher's
departure didn't change the
Titans' decision to either
trade quarterback Vince
Young or release him later
this offseason. The general
manager also noted Fisher
just finished his 17th sea-
son with this organization
and called that unbelievable
in a hard job that takes a
toll.

QBs headline Senior Bowl


By JOHN ZENOR
Associated Press

MOBILE, Ala. Jake Locker
could easily have skipped the
Senior Bowl, just as he might
have bypassed being a senior
altogether.
The former Washington Huskies
star is among the candidates to be
the first quarterback selected in
the NFL draft after an up-and-down
senior season. Instead of weighing
the risk-reward of a top-tier passer
competing in an all-star game with
scouts, coaches and team execu-
tives scrutinizing your every pass
and move, Locker thought it was
a no-brainer to play in Saturday's
game for senior NFL prospects.
"I just love playing football,"
Locker said. "It's an awesome
game, and just .the opportunity to
come play against the best college
players. It's an awesome opportu-
nity."
Regarded as a potential No. 1
overall pick after his junior season,
Locker now is vying with under-
classmen Cam Newton, Blaine
Gabbert and Ryan Mallett to get
the nod as the top quarterback
taken in April.
He has spent this week compet-
ing with fellow seniors who boast


impressive resumes if not quite
the lofty draft stock. The other
two North team quarterbacks are
Nevada's Colin Kaepernick and
Iowa's Ricky Stanzi.
The South is led by three Texans
who faced each other in high
school. Alabama's Greg McElroy
and TCU's Andy Dalton both have
led their teams to perfect seasons.
Florida State's Christian Ponder
ranks among the Seminoles' top
five career leaders in passing
yards, completions, total offense
and completion percentage.
Other top prospects participat-
ing include Texas A&M linebacker
Von Miller, Colorado offensive
tackle Nate Solder and defensive
ends Ryan Kerrigan (Purdue) and
Cameron Jordan (California).
Locker at least put a nice punc-
tuation to his final season. He led
Washington which had to win its
final three regular-season games
to become bowl eligible to a
Holiday Bowl upset over No. 17
Nebraska.
"That meant the world to me.
That's why I came back," said
Locker, who ran for 83 yards and
a touchdown in the finale. "I made
a commitment to that school and I
wanted to honor that commitment.
I had a great experience when


I was at Washington. I wouldn't
trade it for anything. I'm just happy
that our football team was able to
go out the way we did."
He completed 55.4 percent of
his passes for 2,265 yards with 17
touchdowns and nine interceptions
last season. Those numbers were
down from his junior season but
Locker said the extra year "made
me a better person and player."
Plus he got his history degree in
December.
"I think I was able to mature as
a person and as a player, in media
situations, in the huddle, in the
locker room," Locker said. "Just
being a leader overall."
The quarterback derby became
muddied when fellow Pac-10
Conference standout Andrew Luck
of Stanford opted to return for his
senior season, too.
Locker doesn't hide his ambi-
tions to go first among quarter-
backs.
"If you ask anybody, they'd want
to be the first guy taken at their
position," he said. 'That's what
you're working toward, but it's out-
side of all our control. The way I'm
approaching it is I'm going to get
better every day and I'm going to
do my best to outwork the other
guy every day.

Weighing W's and Is vs.

numbers in All-Star votes


By JON KRAWCZYNSKI
Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -
Kevin Love is putting up
staggering numbers for the
Minnesota Timberwolves.
Rebounds 15.7 per
game, nearly 21/ better
than the next closest NBA
player.
Points 21.6, putting
him on track to become
the first player since Moses
Malone in 1982-83 to aver-
age at least 20 points and
15 rebounds per game.
Three-point percentage.
-'44.7, tied for seventh in
the league.
But there is one number
that threatens to prevent
him from making his first
All-Star team. It's 10, which
is how many victories the
Timberwolves have this
season.
"I feel like I've done the
best I could to show I'm
an All-Star type talent, but
I know that wins come, at
a premium in this league
and a lot of coaches are
going to look at that,"
Love said. "But hopefully,
maybe, they can get past
that this year and make an
exception."
Love isn't alone in hop-
ing coaches look past wins
and make him a reserve
for the All-Star game on
Feb. 20 in Los Angeles.
Golden State guard
Monta Ellis, Clippers for-
ward Blake Griffin and
Memphis forward Zach
Randolph are all putting up
huge numbers this season
while playing for losing
teams. The performanc-
es are making it tough
on Western Conference
coaches who vote for the
reserves.
"There are going to be a
lot of hard votes, hard deci-
sions," Dallas Mavericks
coach Rick Carlisle said.
Ellis is averaging 25.8
points per game, fourth
in the league. Griffin has
been the breakout star of
the first half with his fero-
cious dunks. Randolph is'
putting up a double-double
nearly every night to help
the improving Grizzlies
(22-24) approach the .500
mark.
Their numbers are cre-
ating a debate among the
NBA's coaches. Is there
room in the All-Star game
for losers? Love, Griffin,
Ellis and Randolph aren't
losers, but their teams
have a combined record
of 68-113.
Love's Timberwolves
(10-35) are tied for fewest
wins in the West, Griffin's
Clippers (17-28) are still
well under .500 despite a
solid run of late and Ellis's
incredible scoring has
done little to change the
fortunes for the Warriors
(19-26).


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Minnesota Timberwolves' Kevin Love hangs onto the rim
after a dunk in the second half of an NBA basketball game
against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Minneapolis on
Wednesday.


"I don't think there's any
formula for it," Spurs coach
Gregg Popovich said.
"I think that everything
should be considered. I
think it's natural for a play-
er on a team with a better
record to probably get the
attention first. But it does
not preclude a player who
has been outstanding on a
team with a lesser record
from being considered.
"I think it's a subjective
thing. It depends what peo-
ple think, how much they
respect and value what a
specific player has done."
Denver Nuggets coach
George Karl, while com-
plimentary of Love's pro-
gression, was a little less
diplomatic.
"I think his numbers are
impressive enough to be
considered," Karl said. "But
I like taking guys off the
teams that win games."
The star power out West
isn't helping their cause.
Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul,
Carmelo Anthony and
Kevin Durant will start,
with the center yet to
be determined after the
injured Yao Ming was voted
in by the fans. That leaves
players like Dirk Nowitzki,
Deron Williams, Pau Gasol,
Lamar Odom, Tony Parker,
Manu Ginobili, Russell
Westbrook, Steve Nash,
Tim Duncan and LaMarcus
Aldridge to vie for seven
spots on the bench.
"The thing I'll tell you,,
to be very frank, is that
the coaches' vote is always
tipped heavily toward win-
ning," Carlisle said. "I'm no


different than the i;est of
the coaches. I think that's a
major factor in the votes."
That's not good news for
Love, Ellis, Randolph and
Griffin.
It would be hard to
imagine Griffin not getting
voted in for a game played
in his arena. The rookie
is averaging 22.6 points
and 12.8 rebounds and has
made soaring dunks this
season.
"He deserves to be on
the All-Star team, I think,"
said Clippers coach Vinny
Del Negro, who cannot
vote for a player on his
own team. "He's shoul-
dered a ton of the load for
us. Statistically, he's off the
charts, and he's only going
to get better."
Love has been even bet-
ter. He has six games with
at least 20 points and 20
rebounds already. Dwight
Howard led that category
last year with three. He
has three 30-20 games -
the first player to do that
since Hakeem Olajuwon
in 1990-91. And he had a
31-point, 31-rebound mas-
terpiece against the Knicks
in November, the first 30-
30 game in the NBA in 28
years.
"The combination
of a guy who can aver-
age almost five offensive
rebounds and shoot 45 per-
cent from 3, I don't think
that's ever been seen in our
league. Ever," Orlando
coach Stan Van Gundy
said. "It just hasn't hap-
pened. He's a very, very
unique guy."


OPEN: Clijsters, Li in women's final


Continued From Page 1B

Britain had a King and an
empire.
"First of all, it's more like
a personal dream or a per-
sonal goal of mine," Murray
said. "The historical thing,
it's not something that I've
thought about that much,
but it's something that obvi-
ously for me personally I
want to try and win. But I
also don't want to get myself
so amped up that I play a
stinker of a match."
On the women's side,
there will be a first-time
Australian Open winner.
Kim Clijsters goes for her
fourth Grand Slam title
Saturday, but first outside
the United States. She takes
on China's Li Na, who can
become the first Asian to
win a Grand Slam tourna-
ment.
Li already has broken
new ground as the first
Chinese to reach a Grand
Slam singles final. Now she
is hoping to go one better
after eliminating top-ranked
Caroline Wozniacki in the
semifinals.
The top-ranked wom-
en's team of Gisela Dulko
of Argentina and Flavia
Pennetta of Italy rallied from
a set and 4-1 down to win the
doubles final over Victoria
Azarenka of Belarus.,.and
Maria Kirilenko of Russia
2-6, 7-5, 6-1.
In beating the seventh-
seeded Ferrer, Murray was
facing his first top 10 oppo-
nent this year at Melbourne
Park. Ferrer ousted Nadal
in straight sets in the quar-
terfinal, although his fellow
Spaniard was hobbled by
an injured left leg when his
pursuit of a fourth consecu-
tive Grand Slam title evapo-
rated.
Murray was leading
Nadal by two sets and a
break last year when the
Spaniard retired with an
injured knee. Then he lost


the final in straight sets
to, Federer, the weight of
expectations too great.
"If you go in thinking
'eah, no one's won for 60
years, I might never get
another chance ... "Murray
said. "I'm going to make
the most of the opportunity,
for sure. But I also need to
make sure I'm relaxed and
calm on the court. I don't"
want to get myself sort of
too worked up."
Murray has twice been
in this position, losing both
the 2009 U.S. Open final
and last year's Australian
Open in straight sets to
Federer. Djokovic (Ii ,-pi'ed I
Federer 7-6 (3), 7-5, '6-4 in
the semis in Melbourne,
the same round in which he
'beat the Swiss star in 2008.
It also backed up his victory.
over Federer in the last U.S.
Open semifinals.
Murray is hoping two
fresh faces in the final will
be good for tennis. Federer
and Nadal combined to
win 21 of the previous 23
majors. Djokovic's victory
over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in
Australia in 2008 was the
only final in that span, that
didn't feature one of the top
two players.
Djokovic and Murray
have known each other
since their early teens -
both are 23, their birthdays
a week apart. But they have
never met in a major.
"We've always been
like 3 and 4 ,the last few
years. We've always been
on different halves of the
draw in every tournament
we've played." Murray
said. "So we practice a lot
together. We get on well
together. We're good
friends. You know, so in
terms of a rivalry, I think
this will be the start. Well,
I hope it's the start of ,us
playing each other in big
matches."


Murray will get a day off
to think about how he can
improve on last year's per-
formance.
"I'm sure I'll deal with
everything better than I
'have done in the past on
Sunday," he said. "I think
last year was better than the
one before, and I hope this
one is going to be better
than last year."
Djokovic leads their
head-to-heads 4-3. Murray,
however, has won the last
three all on hardcourts.
"I think experiencewise
we're similar ... You know,
we're good friends, we
practice a lot tbYOther ... so
there won't be anysecrets
with our games," Murray
said. "But it's going to be a
brutal match, I think."
After two weeks of unsea-
sonable cool weather, fore-
casters predict a 104-degree
scorcher Sunday. Djokovic
has struggled with swel-
terifig conditions in past
majors, but he is confident
in knowing neither Federer
nor Nadal is around.
"On one side it's good for
the sport to have more play-
ers being able to win against
Federer and Nadal," he
said. "All the credit to them
what they have done in last
five, six years. They've been
very dominant and just a
great example of champi-
ons. Now these things are
changing a little bit, so from
that perspective it's good
for the sport."
Djokovic drew satisfac-
tion from his victory over
Federer.
"I've been playing my
best tennis' in this tourna-
ment," he said. "You know,
this is the only Grand Slam
I won, and again, this year
I've been playing great, los-
ing only a set before finals.,
That shows that this sur-
face is really suitable to my
game."

Switzerland's Roger Federer in their semifinal at the Australian Open tennis championships in
Melbourne, Australia, on Thursday.

DEAR ABBY


Casual modern dress inspires

wish for old-fashioned style


DEAR ABBY: Ameri-
can society has become
ultra-casual in dress and
manners. When I look at
old photographs, men and
women used to dress better
and seemed to take more
pride in their appearance.
Now they wear pajamas to
shop, torn jeans to work and
clothes that are too small for
large bodies. I feel we are a
nation of slobs.
Are we doomed to be this
way in the future? I work
in an office of slobs and ev-
eryone knows I dislike the
"casual atmosphere," so
please don't print my name.
- DRESSED FOR SUC-
CESS IN ALBUQUER-
QUE
DEAR DRESSED FOR
SUCCESS: You are correct.
People did dress differently
in the 1950s, which tooktime,
effort and money. Things
started changing in the '60s
- when the next generation
became the demographic
that was being marketed to.
After that, younger people
began adopting the "grunge
chic" they were seeing in
music videos.
Are we doomed to be this
way forever? I think so, un-
less there's a reactionary
fashion revolution. Frankly,
I don't see it happening any-
time soon.
But before labeling your
co-workers as slobs, please


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
remember that they were
hired looking the way they
do, and if your employer
didn't approve of their ap-
pearance, there would be
a dress code that is strictly
enforced.
DEAR ABBY: Tonight
I came home to find three
messages on my phone. One
was from a doctor's office;
the other two were business
calls. Each one asked me to
call back. The callers spoke
plainly until they-came to
the phone number, which
they rattled off so fast I had
to replay the messages sev-
eral times just to be able to
write the numbers down.
What's the matter with
people? This happens all the
time at work and at home.
Callers, PLEASE slow
down and speak clearly as
if you are picturing someone
actually writing down your
number. Abby, am I getting
old, or what? SAY WIHA
... ? ORANGE, CALIF.

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Make the most
of your time and be sure
to share what you have
to offer with the people
you feel most comfortable
with. Much can be accom-
plished with regard to your
relationships. Your unique
and creative contributions
will result in popularity.

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): More talk and
action will lead to better re-
sults. Don't let anyone take
advantage of you. A com-
munity or neighborhood
effort can pay off but don't
promise to do more or offer
more. ***
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): You'll find it
much easier to figure out
what you want to do next if
you looklinto more obscure
careers or pastimes. Pursu-
ing the unusual will hold
your interest so you'll stick
with it and finish. Love and
romance are in the stars.

CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Don't overre-
act. Be willing to adjust to
change and accept what
others want to do. Don't
limit what you can do by
being stubborn or jealous.
The best route to take is
the one of least resistance.
3 stars
LEO (July 23-Aug.


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

22): There is much you
can accomplish if you take
on a creative project.' A
partnership will bring you
added focus and power to
reach for greater results.
Entertainment should be
scheduled for the evening
hours. *****
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Take a good look at
your life and you will know
what needs'to be done to
get things back on track.
Don't let emotional black-
mail cause you to back
down or give in to some-
one who isn't good for you.
Communication will help to
lessen your stress. **
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Get involved in an
activity that will keep you
busy and away from trouble
at home. A friend or lover
will help you with a creative
endeavor. Working toward
a goal will bring you greater
self-confidence. ****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Distance your-
self from anything or any-
one that brings you down.
Stay focused and upbeat
about your goals. Befriend
someone who can contrib-
ute and encourage you but
don't give away too much
because you are grateful.


Selling yourself short will
be your downfall. ***
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): You'll be
overly emotional regarding
personal matters or affairs,
of the heart. Listen to what
others say but don't over-
react. Diplomacy will count
for a lot and could save you
from making a terrible,.'
costly mistake. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Your ability.
to size up a situation will
allow you to get ahead per-
sonally and professionally.,
You will be tempted to take
on a responsibility that will
make it difficult to reach
your own goals. Offer sug-'
gestions not time. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-,
Feb. 18): Look at the big,
picture. There is a lot more^,
you.can accomplish if youl "
focus on what interests youth
the most. Dedicate your,,
time and effort to some-
thing that builds your self-
esteem and gives you a pur-
pose. ****
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): There may
be too much going on be-'
hind closed doors for you
to make an honest assess-,
ment of your situation. You,
have to be sure before comrn-'
mitting. A critical view may'
seem negative but it will.
also spare you from back-
tracking. **
