Mexico takes Miss Universe crown


LAS VEGAS

22-year-old Jimena
Navarrete has quickly
made it clear what she
plans to promote as
the world's newest Miss Universe
- her home country of Mexico.
"I want the whole world to know
about my country and my people,"
the Guadalajara native said after
beating 82 competitors for global
bragging rights at the pageant in
Las Vegas.
"I imagine that they're all going
crazy in Mexico right now," she
said through an interpreter. "I'm
extremely proud and I'm sure
they're very proud, too."
She donned a flowing red dress,
strutted confidently in a violet bikini,
and said onstage that the Internet is
indispensable and requires parents
to impart family values.
"Her triumph is a source of pride
and satisfaction for all Mexicans,
who see in her the fruits of per-
severance," Mexican President
Felipe Calderon said in a statement
Immediately after her win, Calderon
said on Twitter that her victory
would help Mexico's image as a
country.
"We won, long live Mexico!"
Navarrete said on her fan page on
Facebook, spurring 478 "likes" and
218 comments in about one hour.
She was'cheered by Spanish-,
speaking reporters clamoring to talk
with her after the pageant, and twice
answered questions about Arizona's
recent immigration law.
"Every country has the right to
impose and enact their laws," she
said, wearing her new sash and
sparkling tiara. "But I tell you that
all the Mexicans and the Latins that
are living here in the United States
are hardworking people people
who want to improve on their qual-
ity of life."

Ansel Adams trust sues
over 'garage' negatives
SAN JOSE, Calif. A group
representing Ansel Adams sued


a California man for selling prints
and posters under the name of the
famed nature photographer, the lat-
est salvo in a dispute over glass neg-
atives bought at a garage sale and
purported to be Adams' lost work.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in fed-
eral district court in San Francisco
by The Ansel Adams Publishing
Rights Trust, seeks to stop Rick
Norsigian and consulting firm PRS
Media Partners from using Adams'
name, likeness and trademark in
their efforts to sell prints and post-
ers not authorized or endorsed by
the trust.
Norsigian says he bought the
negatives 10 years ago at a Fresno
garage sale for $45. He noticed
they resembled Adams' famed
photographs of Yosemite National
Park and hired lawyer Arnold Peter
to assemble a team of experts to
authenticate them.

ticipation in both school
breakfast and the free
or reduced-price school
meal program.
She also noted that
studies show there are
benefits of serving school
breakfast, such as improv-
ing attendance, punctual-
ity for school, test scores
and attention in class.
Mike Millikin, superin-
tendent of schools, said
the district has seen a
10 percent increase this
year against past years
in the number of fami-
lies that qualify for free
or reduced-price lunch-
es, a reflection of tough
economic times.
"A child that has had
a healthy breakfast and
lunch is much more pre-
pared to.learn," he said.
"Sadly, these might be
the only meals they get
that day, and we want to
do our part."


Also on Wednesday:
In its consent agen-
da, the board approved
a School Improvement
Grant, federal grant
dollars from the state,
worth'almost $760,000
for Columbia High
School to be used dur-
ing the 2010 to 2011
school year.
District staff
reported on class size
reduction numbers
thus far in the school
year and the board dis-
cussed active options
to balance the num-
bers.
Millikin reminded
the board of Niblack
Elementary's State
of the School meet-
ing, a meeting being
held to discuss perfor-
mance improvement
after the school was
graded a "D" by the
state for the 2009 to
2010 school year. The
board will meet for the
discussion at 3 p.m.

OUR
OPINION


Rules to


prevent

needless


deaths

We try to keep
our children
away from
danger, but for
five days every
week that's just not possible.
If averages hold true,
between 18 and 24 children will
die this year as a result of what
the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration calls,
"school bus-related fatalities."
Often, these deaths are the
result of a child being struck
by a bus or a passing motorist.
Too often, these deaths were
avoidable.
In Columbia County, school
is now back in session, and
with school comes transporta-
tion and rules.
When teaching children
about bus safety, no rule is
more important than teaching
them to stay out of the danger
zone. For a bus, that zone is
defined as all sides where a
driver's sight is most limited
- 10 feet in front and to either
side and anywhere behind the
vehicle.
The simple rule is that chil-
dren should take seven giant
steps away from an approach-
ing bus and proceed forward
only after the driver signals
them to do so.
It can be difficult to make
this impression on a bus stop
full of children all clamoring
to be first aboard, but it's an
impression that is vital for
parents to make to safeguard
Columbia County's most pre-
cious cargo.
Bus safety isn't solely the
responsibility of the driver. We
must teach our children to also
do their parts.

Back to school, back to safety


Monday marked
the return of
another school
year in Columbia
County. The
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office offers the following
health and safety tips and
encourages all to be cautious
as students return to class. The
beginning of the school year
is a time when children are at
increased risk of transportation-
related injuries from pedestrian,
bicycle, school bus and motor
vehicle crashes.

Walking to school
In neighborhoods with
higher levels of traffic, consider
starting a "walking school bus,"
in which an adult accompanies a
group of neighborhood children
walking to school.
Make sure your child's
walk to school is a safe route
with well-trained adult crossing
guards at every intersection.
Be realistic about your
child's pedestrian skill. Because
small children are impulsive
and less cautious around traffic,
carefully consider whether your
child is ready to walk to school
without adult supervision.
If your child is young or is
walking to a new school, walk
with them the first week to
make sure they know the route
and can do it safely.
Bright colored clothing will
make your children more visible
to drivers.

Biking
Always wear a bicycle hel-
met
Ride on the right, in the
same direction as automobile
traffic.
Use appropriate hand sig-
nals.
Respect traffic lights and
stop signs.

To the Editor:
In response to a letter
"Obama's opponents act like
terrorists" (Aug. 18): Obama
has not produced a real birth
certificate. That is a fact The
document that was presented is
a registration of live birth, not
a birth certificate. They are not
the same. And the presented
document has a number of
defects: no seal or signature and
the registration number is miss-
ing so there is no way to check
it's authenticity. Anyone with a
little bit of "Photoshop" skills
could produce one.

States that requires the presi-
dent to be a natural born citi-
zen. I, and tens of millions of
other concerned citizens, still

Mark Hunter


Wear bright clothing to
increase visibility.
Know the "rules of the
road."

School bus
If you child's school bus
has lap/shoulder belts, make
sure your child uses one at all
times.
Wait for the bus to stop
before approaching it from the
curb.
Do not move around on the
bus.
Check to see that no other
traffic is coming before crossing
the street
Make sure to always
remain in clear view of the bus
driver.
Children should always
board and exit the bus at des-
ignated locations that provide
safe access to the bus or to the
school building.

Tips for motorists
All passengers should wear
a seat belt and/or an age- and
size-appropriate car safety seat
or booster seat.
Do not text or talk on your
cell phone while driving.
Slow down and obey all
traffic laws and speed limits.
Be alert for school zones
that have a reduced speed limit
at designated times of the day.
Watch for school buses.
State law requires you to stop
for school buses loading or
unloading children..

be respected, not ignored, by
Obama. The basic point is if
there is no problem; why hasn't
he produced a real birth certifi-
cate? Maybe there is a problem
then?
The writer further jumps to
the "race card" calling some of
those that disagree with Obama
bigots and terrorists. I have
encountered this same response
during debates with Obama
liberals about some of Obama's
policies. I use facts, logical and
common sense, to show all -the
ways Obama is wrong. When
the liberals have no further
defenses to my points, I start
getting attacked personally call-
ing me a racist, bigot and other
names. It is time to stop using
race as an excuse or reason for
anything. I can only guess some
people still have to hang on to it
as that is the only defense they
can come up with.
I will make it very simple. I
do not like Obama because he is


Keep an eye out for chil-
dren walking on the street or
playing and gathering near bus
stops.

Tip for parents
Be a good role model.
Always buckle up in the car,
wear a helmet when biking and
follow pedestrian safety rules.
Don't drive and tekt or talk on a
cell phone.
[* Supervise young children
as they are walking or biking
to school or as they wait at the
school bus stop.
Provide your children with
bright clothing so motorists can
easily see them.
Use child safety seats in
the back seat if your child is
younger than 4 and weighs less
than 40 pounds. Children 4 to 8
and more than 40 pounds and
less then 4 feet, 9 inches tall
should ride in a booster seat
All children younger than 12
should ride in the back seat
Make sure your teen driver
understands and obeys all traf-
fic laws.

Tips for students.
Always buckle up. Never
buckle up with a backpack on.
Always ride in the back
seat
Always wear a helmet when
riding your bike.
Learn bus stop and bus
safety rules.
Learn and practice the
safety rules for pedestrians if
you walk to school.
Always cross at cross
walks.
Observe and obey all warn-
ing signals and signs, especially
at railroad track crossings.

for bigger federal government,

The question still remains is
that Obama may not be a natu-

That is just one small part of
what is wrong with him and

When did

your dreams

take off?

n sixth grade, nobody
impressed me more than
did Michael Caulkins.
What impressed me
was that even before the
age of 13, Mike knew what he
wanted to do with his life. He
was focused: My classmate
had no doubt that he would be
an Air Force test pilot en route
to one day flying for NASA.
He had the book smarts
to back it up. He spoke with
passion about-zero gravity. He
had the model airplanes, lov-
ingly constructed and minutely
detailed.
I don't know if he ever made
it
Sixth grade was a genera-
tion ago and 1,200 miles north
from where I'm sitting today.
You tend to lose contact over
such great distances.
But I thought of Mike
recently when the Astronaut
Scholarship Foundation
dropped a note about its
upcoming fall auction in my
in-box.
The nonprofit ASF hosts
auctions of genuine space arti-
facts and astronaut autographs
twice a year to raise money
for college scholarships in the
fields of engineering and tech-
nology. The idea is to help the
United'States keep its world
leadership in those areas.
More than 80 astronauts from
the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo,
Skylab and Space Shuttle pro-
grams have signed on to help
out
You have to preregister
for the online portion of
the auction the culmina-
tion of the event is a sit-
down Autographica show in
Heathrow, England -- but
once you do, you're able to bid
beginning Sept 16 on such
items as Apollo 13 flown para-
chute segments, a letter from
Alan Shephard or a signed
Apollo 40th Anniversary auto-
graphed print Other auction
items include face time with
astronauts and moonwalkers
for a home-cooked meal or a
shuttle launch.
I checked out the details
of the auction at www.astro-
nautscholarship.org/auction.
I also checked the site for
evidence that my old classmate
had made his dream come
true. I didn't find his name
there, and honestly, the odds
were never good to begin with.
Few men and women who
aspire to reach the heights of a
NASA career ever do.
But three decades later,
I still remember Michael's
dream. And if he made it, I
sure wouldn't mind having an
autograph.
But if he didn't, I hope he
still remembers a young man's
dream and I hope he's still
reaching for the stars we all
wish on no matter how old we
become.

Scott grabs GOP nomination for governor


Associated Press
FORT LAUDERDALE -
Wealthy political newcomer
Rick Scott, who spent more
than $38 million of his own
money on an 'aggressive
TV campaign, won the
Republican nomination for
Florida governor Tuesday
over longtime politician Bill
McCollum.
Scott, who overcame
repeated questions about
a massive Medicare and
Medicare fraud scandal
during the time he was
CEO of the Columbia/HCA
hospital corporation, sold
himself to Florida GOP
voters as a "conservative
outsider" and ran scores
of commercials depicting
McCollum, the state attor-'
ney general, as an ineffec-
tive career politician des-
perate to hold onto public
office.
With 92 percent of the
votes counted, Scott had
47 percent of the vote to
McCollum's 43. The third
GOP candidate, Mike
McCalister, got 10 percent.
McCollum, a former con-
gressman who twice ran
unsuccessfully for the U.S.
Senate, faltered despite
numerous endorsements
and wide support among
the state's Republican
establishment, including
former Gov. Jeb Bush.
"This has been a tough,
grueling battle all the way
through," McCollum said


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Surrounded by family and friends, Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott (center) watches televised election results
for the Florida's primary election, Tuesday, in Fort Lauderdale.


late Tuesday, refusing to
concede.
Scott's antiestablishment
message resounded with
many voters dissatisfied
with business-as-usual gov-
ernment. He promised to
create jobs and run state


government like an effi-
cient business, cutting costs
and services to balance the
budget. He proposed cut-
ting corporate taxes, eas-
ing regulations and taking
other steps to attract new/
business to Florida.


The candidates' nasty
attacks, on one another dur-
ing the campaign includ-
ing in two televised debates
tended to overshadow
' the, issues. McCollum
hammered Scott repeat-
edly for his leadership of


Columbia/HCA, which
ended up paying $1.7 bil-
lion to settle the criminal
charges of Medicare and
Medicaid fraud. Scott, who
was forced out as CEO by
his board amid the govern-
ment investigation in 1997,


has said repeatedly that
he didn't know about any
criminal activity and was
never charged.
McCollum was the par-
ty's presumptive nominee
until Scott jumped in the
race suddenly in April.
Having moved to Florida
seven years ago from
Connecticut, he took a
high-profile role in fighting
President Barack Obama's
health care law last year
and had become a favorite
of the tea party movement.
For all their squabbling,
the candidates were never
far apart on the issues. Both
presented economic*plans
they say would create hun-
dreds of thousands of jobs.
Both opposed abortion
rights and gay adoption,
and supported Arizona's
tough new. immigration
law. Both vowed to stop
Obama's health care law
from being implemented in
Florida.
Scott had tried to position
himself as even more con-
servative that McCollum,
who as a congressman in
the 1980s was a loyal foot
soldier to President Ronald,
Reagan. Scott exploited
McCollum's flip-flop on.
whether a measure like the
tough Arizona immigra-
tion law was necessary in
Florida.
Scott will face Democrat
Alex' Sink and independent
candidate Lawton "Bud"
Chiles III in the Nc v. 2 gen-
eral election.


Meek wins Democratic Senate nomination, will face Rubio, Crist


By CURT ANDERSON
Associated Press Writer
MIAMI U.S. Rep.
Kendrick Meek defeated
billionaire Jeff Greene to
win the Democratic U.S.
Senate nomination in
Florida's primary Tuesday,
while in the Republican
governor's race wealthy
businessman and politi-
cal novice Rick Scott beat
veteran officeholder ..Bill
McCollum as voters chose
a mix of the establishment
and the outsider in top-tier
races.
Meek, who represents a
Miami-based district, would
become Florida's first
black senator if he wins in
November. His opponents
in a three-way battle will be
Republican Marco Rubio, a
former state House speaker
who easily won his party's
primary, )and Republican-
turned-independent Gov.


Charlie Crist. Crist quit the
GOP in the face of Rubio's
strong challenge from the,
right
With 95 percent of the
votes counted, Meek had
57 percent of the vote to 31
percent for Greene.
Scott, who like Greene
spent millions of his own
money on the race, had
a :more difficult time dis-,
patching McCollum, the
state's attorney general-
who served 20 years in
Congress from Orlando.
But ultimately, with 95 per-
cent of the votes counted,
Scott had an insurmount-
able 46 percent to 43 per-
centlead.
In the Democratic gov-
ernor's race, Alex Sink
- the state's elected chief
financial officer brushed
aside token opposition to
take the party nomination
with more than 76 percent
of the vote. Also running


is independent Lawton
"Bud" Chiles III; namesake
son of the popular former
Democratic governor, who
died in office 12 years ago.
Voters also chose nomi-
nees for attorney general,
picking former Tampa
prosecutor Pam Bondi over
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp and
former state House mem-
ber Holly Benson on .the
Republican side. State Sen.
Dan Gelber defeated Dave
Aronberg, also a state sena-
tor, for the Democrats.*
Secretary of State Dawn
Roberts said there were
few election problems,
other than a scattering of
polling places that opened
late. Rain across much of
the state further dampened
turnout, estimated at less
than 20 percent. Turnout is
never very high in prima-
ries during non-presiden-
tial election years.
David Baker, a 63-year-


old Democrat, showed up
at about 7:45 a.m. at a West
Palm Beach library to vote.
He declined to say whom
he supported.
"It's very difficult to pick
a candidate who's going
to solve the problems we
have right now because
the problems are so deep,"
Baker said. "So I'm really
more interested'.in some-'
one who is interested in
public service and not just
having a job."
Baker was surprised at


the low voter turnout. He
said he chatted with the,
only other person in the
polling place, marveling at
.how few people were show-
ing up. 'We were the only
two in the. room," he said.
In the two top-of-ticket
races, Scott and Greene
both spent tens of mil-
lions of their- ow''dlollars
to blanket the state with
TV ads and direct mail..
Polls during much of the
summer showed both surg-


ing ahead, but those leads
began to shrink or disap-
pear as Democratic and
Republican leaders rallied
more firmly behind Meek
and McCollum.
The campaigns also grew
increasingly harsh. Meek,
portrayed by Greene as
linked to corrupt Miami
businessfigures, hitbackby
emphasizing that Greene's
huge fortune was made by
betting the mortgage mar-
ket would collapse.

White House: Troop cut 'remarkable achievement'


By MARK S. SMITH
Associated Press
VINEYARD HAVEN,
Mass. The U.S. troop
drawdown in Iraq is a
"truly remarkable achieve-
ment" and demonstrates
President Barack Obama's
commitment to responsibly
ending the drawn-out con-
flict, the White House said
Tuesday.'
- The assessment from
White House counterter-
rorism chief John Brennan
came after the Pentagon
reported that U.S. troop
strength in Iraq has dropped
below 50,000 for the first
time since the 2003 U.S.-led
invasion.
Briefing reporters as the
president vacationed on


Martha's Vineyard, Mass.,
Brennan noted that the mile-
stone had been reached a
week ahead of schedule and
represented a drop of 94,000
troops on Obama's watch.
Obama plans a major
speech next week to mark
the formal
end of the
combatmis-
sion-in Iraq,
though a
substantial
U.S. con-
tingent will
Brennan remain in a
training and backup role.
Deputy Press Secretary
Bill Burton said plans for the
speech are still being drawn
up. But he said Obama will
address "the importance of
the milepost," praise the her-


oism of U.S. troops who've
fought and died there and
outline the administration's
continuing goals.
Brennan said the removal
of tens of thousands of U.S.
troops without destabiliz-
ing Iraq "represents a truly
remarkable achievement
for our military and for the
country."
Asked if America will


still be at war in Iraq once
the combat mission ends,
Brennan replied "right now
we still have two theaters of
military operations: Iraq and
Afghanistan."
Brennan acknowledged
that the Iraqis still face siz-
able challenges, from form-
ing a stable government to
preventing terrorist bomb-
ings.


"There's still more prog-
ress that needs to be made
inside of Iraq to ensure that
security is going to prevail
throughout the country an
dis going to be enduring,"
he said.
Brennan said terror-
ist groups like al-Qaida in
Iraq "will try to argue that
they have been successful"
in pushing U.S. troops out
"But they are wrong. We
are reducing our footprint in
Iraq under our terms."
Brennan praised Iraqi
security forces, which he
said were showing increas-
ing competence. Those
forces "have increasingly
moved into the lead," he
said.
"Although these terror-
ists continue to kill inno-


cent Iraqis," Brennan said,
"they have failed to ignite
sectarian violence and vio-
lence continues to be at a
reduced level."
Back in Washington,
Vice President Joe Biden
echoed Brennan's assess-
ment of the troop reduc-
tion.
"This, quite frankly, is
a remarkable milestone
in a war that began more
than seven years ago ...
the second-longest war im
AAmerican history," said
Biden, who has become
an administration point-
man on Iraq. "We owe an
incredible debt of gratitude
to the tens of thousands of
American troops who have
sacrificed to get us to this
place."

Maj. Gen. Philip Volpe, co-chairman of the Department of Defense Task Force on the

bers -of the armed forces
killed themselves from
2005 to 2009 and suicides
are rising again this year.
The sharpest increases
have been in the Army and
Marine Corps, the services
most stretched by the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"The task force com-
mends the armed forces
for the suicide prevention
initiatives it has undertak-
en and knows of no other
employer that has focused
as much attention, and
resources on suicide pre-
vention," said the report
by a 14-member panel of
military and civilian doc-
tors as well as other civil-
ians involved in suicide and


family issues. "However,
the task force found that
the current vast expansion
of suicide prevention initia-
tives across the services
was developed rapidly and
separately by each service
for immediate execution."
It said that despite the
"extraordinary effort"
made by the services to
deal with the suicide crisis,
the programs "could ben-
efit from re-engineering"
because they have some
inefficiencies and gaps, in
some cases overlap or are
not implemented evenly.
Sentto Defense Secretary
Robert Gates on Tuesday,
the report makes 76 recom-
mendations.

/ was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,

Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach


No oil has flow-ed into the Gulf foi weeks. But we know this is just the
' beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 'million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up-if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

All-State lineman
back at practice
with Tigers.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
Following a scrimmage
on Saturday night in which
Columbia High coach Craig
Howard pointed out spo-
radic line play, the Tigers
received a bit of good
news at practice this week
with the return of Jordan
Morris.
Morris was an All-State
offensive lineman last sea-
son, and had chosen not to
play his senior season. After
seeing him in the stands for
Saturday's scrimmage, the
Tigers went the Brett Favre
route to get him back.


After a conversation with
defensive tackle Timmy
Jernigan, Howard made a
call to Morris, and he was
back on the practice field.
"He's on the Brett Favre
plan," Howard said. "He's
going to play this year. It's
going to take him a little
while to get ready, but he'll
play. I don't know if he'll
play Friday."
The Tigers finally take
the field against another
opponent as they travel to
Fort White for the kick-
off classic at 7:30 p.m. on
Friday.
"Ifs going to add some
spice to practice," Howard
said. "It's finally game
week."
Preparation will remain
largely the same for the
classic as it will the rest


of the season. Howard is
excited to have the team
take the field against Fort
White as a gear-up for the
regular season.
"It's always the same,"
Howard said of prepara-
tions. "On game day, we'll
wear the shirt and ties.
We'll have our pregame
meal. We'll do all the stuff,
the meal, meeting and cha-
pel."
Despite that it's a glori-
fied preseason game, the
Tigers expect to see a large
crowd in attendance at Fort
White. Howard even went
as far as to call the game
the Columbia County Super
Bowl.
"There will be a lot of
people," he said. "I try to

team that included Billy King and Larry Walker. The North Florida Gator Club saluted the
golfers and sponsors for raising local scholarship money in its five-county area.

Three birdies and an
eagle led to a +14 score and
an easy victory in the blitz.
Buddy Slay was in the run-

McCranie continued his

and an eagle that held up
for half the take. Dwight

Rice out with hip injury


By JON KRAWCZYNSKI
Associated Press

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.
- Brett Favre's job just got
a whole lot tougher.
Favre and the Minnesota
Vikings will play the first
half of the season or
more without Pro Bowl
receiver Sidney Rice, who
had hip surgery this week.
Coach Brad Childress
said Tuesday that Rice
had the procedure in Vail,
Colo., on Monday night.
He couldn't give a specific
timetable for Rice's return,
but said typically it takes
about eight weeks before
a player can even get back
to practice, let alone game
action.
"I would think (it will
take) probably at least eight
weeks before we're talk-
ing about doing anything,"
Childress said.
It's a huge blow for the
Vikings, who have very lit-
tle depth at receiver. Percy
Harvin has struggled with
migraines during the pre-
season, and the team signed
veteran Javon Walker on
Tuesday to help out.


After catching just 45
passes during an injury-
plagued first two seasons in
Minnesota, Rice emerged
as Brett Favre's go-to guy
in his third season with 83
catches for 1,312 yards and
eight TDs. He earned his
first Pro Bowl bid, though
he was injured in the play-
offs and did not play again.
Favre raved about Rice's
combination of size and
leaping ability, saying he
felt confident throwing the
ball his way even if Rice
appeared to be well cov-
ered. Favre's confidence in
him allowed Rice to blos-
som, positioning himself as
.one of the best downfield
threats in the NFC despite
a lack of game-breaking
speed.
He saw three specialists
in the offseason to exam-
ine his injured hip and
declined to have surgery,
hoping the condition would
heal on its own. Rice never
participated in a practice
during training camp, and
it became apparent late last
week that the injury was
not improving fast enough
for him to be ready for the


season opener against New
Orleans on Sept 9.
Childress said all the
specialists, along with team
doctors, agreed that sur-
gery was not needed in the
offseason. Rice, who is in
the final year of his con-
tract for just $550,000 this
season, decided something
more had to be done.
"I can't feel what he's feel-
ing," Childress said. "In the
end, it's up to him whether
he wanted to have that pro-
cedure or whether he could
press through."
The surgery, first report-
ed by the Star Tribune of
Minneapolis, means Favre's
20th season in the NFL will

Down year for Tiger.



leads to parity on tour


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

PARAMUS, N.J. The
dominance of Tiger Woods
becomes even more
defined when he can't beat
anyone at all.
In the years when he
wasn't winning a major
or three, Woods compen-
sated by winning at least
five times on the PGA Tour
against some of the stron-
gest fields on some of.the
toughest courses. He won
31 times and six majors in
the previous five years.
The only -time during
that stretch that Woods did
not win PGA Tour player
of the year was in 2008,
when he made it through
only half the year until his
knee gave out. Padraig
Harrington captured the
last two majors to win the
award, although Woods
still earned some consider-
ation. He won four times in
six starts, including a U.S.
Open.
The FedEx Cup playoffs
get under way this week at
The Barclays, and Woods
is at No. 112 in the stand-
ings, sandwiched between
Bob Estes and Cameron
Beckman.
Dominance has given
way to parity.
Five players have mul-
tiple victories this year
- Ernie Els, Jim Furyk,
Steve Stricker, Justin Rose
and Hunter Mahan yet
none of them has more
than two wins, and none of
them won a major.


Why has no one filled
the void?
'That's how good Tiger
Wood is that's what I
make of it," Adam Scott
said Tuesday.
Els has been leading the
FedEx Cup standings since
winning the Arnold Palmer
Invitational in March. He
begins the playoffs with
only a 149-point lead over
Stricker. Ayear ago, Woods
had a 1,276-point lead over
Stricker going into The
Barclays.
"This is just an observa-
tion," Zach Johnson said
Tuesday. "But I watched
Greensboro for about six
holes on Sunday and they
showed the standings. I
knew Ernie had been on
top forever, but he still is.
The other years it seemed
like it was so volatile that
even I was at No. 1 for
like a week. Now it's all
bunched up."
Golf is bunched up at
the moment, at least on the
PGA Tour.
"No one has separated
themselves," Mahan said.
'Tiger hasn't won five
times. You've got a bunch
of guys who have won
twice."
In its first three years,
the FedEx Cup has provid-
ed four great tournaments
after the majors were over,
and the list of winners
backs that up three wins
for Woods; two apiece for
Mickelson, Stricker, Vijay
Singh and Camilo Villegas;
and Heath Slocum as the
outsider, but only after


beating Woods, Stricker,
Harrington and Els on the
last hole. Even so, it had
little bearing on anything
except a bank account.
This year thanks to
Woods it's a little dif-
ferent
The four playoff events
over the next five weeks
most likely*will decide who
was the best player on the
PGA Tour this year. Not
only is there no clear-cut
favorite for player of the
year, it's hard to determine
the front-runner.
"Ernie?" pondered
Mahan, but only after tak-
ing several seconds of
thought "He's leading the
points race, right? And he
won twice. And he was right
up there in two majors."
Actually, only one major.
Els had a share of the
lead Sunday' in the U.S.
Open until he started drop-
ping shots along the Pacific
cliffs and never got them
back. He wound up third,
then missed the cut in the
British Open and fizzled at
the PGA Championship.
Winning the FedEx Cup
might be all it takes for Els
to be voted player of the
year. Then again, it's math-
ematically possible for him
to do that without winning
'another tournament Can a
guy get voted best player
with only two wins and no
majors?
"If Phil wins, it's got to
be over," Mahan said, con-
tinuing to work this out
while speaking to no one in
particular.


The defining shot of this
goofy season was the 6-
iron Mickelson hit through
the pines on the 13th at
Augusta National when
he won the Masters. He
is the only major cham-
pion in the FedEx Cup
because the other three -
Graeme McDowell, Louis
Oosthuizen and Martin
Kaymer were not PGA
Tour members.
For the eighth time over
the last three months,
Mickelson will have yet
another chance to replace
Woods atop .the world
ranking. It should have
happened by now, as
poorly as Woods has
performed. Trouble
is, Mickelson hasn't
been much better.
Lefty has not finished
in the top 10 in the four
tournaments he has played
since the U.S. Open.
Mahan won in Phoenix,
got engaged to a former
Dallas Cowboys cheer-
leader, then won his first
World Golf Championship
title at Firestone. He would
get consideration with
a victory or two in the
next month, plus the $10
million prize for the FedEx
Cup.
The same holds true for
Stricker, Furyk and Rose.
Someone needs to separate
themselves from the pack.
"I guess there's a lot of
people in the mix," Dustin
Johnson said. "But who-
ever has a good playoffs
will probably be the top
candidate."

and Ashley Beckman.
"I think we are going
to have a good season,"
Lapuma said.
Wohlstein echoes the
assessment A third straight
trip to the playoffs -would
match what Fort White did
in 2000-01-02, which was
under .two coaches.
"They have worked hard
all summer," Wohlstein
said. "We went to team and
individual camp at Florida.
This is not the tallest, but,
it's one of the most athletic
teams I've coached."
Wohlstein agrees that
Santa Fe is the team to
beat. Fort White players
and Columbia High play-
ers joined the North Florida
Fusion club team in the
summer and faced Santa Fe
players.
"From what we've seen,
they are a quality team,"
Wohistein said. "They are
always. the team to beat
until'someone knocks them
off the top."
That is the goal this sea-
son.
'We have been preparing


.for our district games over
the summer," Baker said.
"Mentally and physi-
cally we are prepared fori
Santa Fe ... and Columbia,"
Stringfellow said.
Wohlstein stresses the
mental aspect.
"We have a real strong
team this year and we can
play as well as our energy
lets us," Wohlstein said. "I
believe we can beat any-
body we play, if we play
hard."
Sealey noted that is a
given. "We are all giving
100 percent when we take
the court," she said.
Fort White hosts a pre-
season classic on Thursday,
with Columbia, Cornerstone
Academy and Union County
High in the field.
The schedule:
4 p.m. -
Cornerstone vs. Union
County;
5:15 p.m. -
Cornerstone vs. Columbia;
6:30 p.m. Fort
White vs. Union County;
7:45 p.m. Fort
White vs. Columbia.


BOWDEN: Forced out

"I doubt if I'll have a
relationship with T.K any-
more," he said.
Wetherell acknowledged
that ultimately it was his
decision to remove Bowden
and let Jimbo Fisher, who
had already been desig-
nated Bowden's successor,
take over in 2010.
"Of course I made the
decision, who else could
have?" Wetherell told the
AP.
Wetherell added it was
one of the most difficult
things he had to do in his
seven years as Florida State
president He stepped down
after last school year.
While Bowden was not
allowed to end his career on
his own terms, he insists he
doesn't miss coaching.
Sure, he'd like to see the
players and his assistants.
But not having to worry
about wins and losses, play-
ers' grades or receiving


those late night phone calls
about a one of his kids get-
ting in trouble, he said he's,
happier without that
Bowden has been keep-
ing busy, traveling mostly
around the South and speak-
ing to churches about his.
Christian faith. His speak-
ing engagements have also
taken him to Brazil and
Billings, Mont, for the first
time.
He also took a vaca-
tion with his wife; Ann, to
Israel.
In Tallahassee, Fla., how-
ever, he's keeping a low-pro-
file. He's spending much of
his time at a house he owns
in Panama City, Fla.
"I love Florida State,"
he said. "I'll be pulling, for
them. I'll be pulling for
Jimbo. I didn't want to sit
there and be looking over
his shoulder.
"People have to make the
transition from me to him."

remind our coaches and
players that Ed White is
still more important to Fort
White."
Even though the game
will have no bearing on
the playoff chances of
either team, Howard
admits there's still a little
something more to this
game.
"Normally in games like


this, you try to play every-
one," he said. "Just like
in the NFL, you won't see
Brett Favre or Tom Brady
playing in the fourth quar-
ter, but in this game there's
T-shirts saying that they
beat us."
Howard admitted the
Tigers probably wouldn't be
making shirts if Columbia
wins Friday.

The means to make lasting changes in community


The Suwannee
Valley
Community
Foundation has
found a way for
members of the commu-
nity interested in bettering
the area to leave an eternal
legacy: An endowment for
the community's benefit
that the foundation will
watch over.
"The purpose of the
foundation is to secure,
manage and distribute
philanthropic resources in
support of building a bet-
ter community," said Tom
Brown, foundation chair-
man.
'We don't raise money,
but we are a tool that's
available to people who
live in our community and
who want to leave a legacy
in the community," Brown
said. "They want to effect
a change for the good in
the community, they have
a philanthropic intent or
they want to make a gift
back to the community
that survives them."
The Suwannee Valley
Community Foundation
is an affiliate of The
Community Foundation
Inc. in Jacksonville
and serves Columbia,
Hamilton, Lafayette,
Suwannee and Union
Counties.
It is governed by an
advisory board with rep-
resentatives from three of
the five counties it serves.
The foundation was
established in 2002 when
community and business-

leaders in the Suwannee
Valley region came togeth-
er with the intent to serve
the region's residents.
The leaders wanted
to create a way to keep
monetary gifts benefiting
the community, left by
individuals who wished to
do so, still working in the
community even when the
individual leaving the gift
had passed, Brown said.
Before the foundation
was established, there was
no means in the area in
which to do this, Brown


said.
Individuals, families,
corporations and private
foundations can establish
a fund through the founda-
tion for the community or
its nonprofit organizations.
It currently has more than
$1 million in 10 endowed
funds focused on provid-
ing permanent chari-
table resources for the
Suwannee Valley Region.
James Montgomery,
foundation vice chairman
who holds an endowment
with the foundation, noted


that The Community
Foundation Inc. in
Jacksonville handles all
the endowment money.
He said the Suwannee
Valley Community
Foundation will take care
of the details to ease
the process for whoever
wants to create an endow-
ment.
"Ifs a perfect set-up for
anyone who would wish
to set up an endowment,"
Montgomery said. "It's
already done for you,
instead of you hating to.


get someone to handle it
or set it all up for you. All
you have to do is write us
a check and tell us how
you want that money dis-
persed forevermore, and it
would be done. That's why
I got into this."
The foundation also
provides grants, which it
started in 2005 with the
help of The Community
Foundation Inc. Since it
began grantmaking, the
foundation has recom-
mended almost $80,000
worth of grants to 12 orga-


nizations in the region.
Past interests for grant-
making include improv-
ing the quality of life for
community seniors, youth
and education in the
foundation's five counties,
and also different projects
and programs improving
residents' quality of life in
the five counties.
"We try to do something
in each one of the coun-
ties," Montgomery said.
By using the founda-
tion as a facilitator for an
endowment, a gift left for
the community will always
last.
"There are ways you
can use the foundation to
accomplish something you
couldn't with just an out-
right gift," Brown said.
"It will go on forever,"
Montgomery said. "That's
what I like about it, it just
goes on and on and on. It
won't end."
Montgomery also said
the foundation has been
happy with how the Lake
City Reporter has covered
its gifts to the community.
"I would say we have
been very pleased with
the coverage," he said.
"Every time we've gone to
give a gift or make a gift,
the Lake City Reporter has
always been present to get
a picture and an article
with it. They definitely
have covered the areas
and the times that we have
made a contribution to the
community."

DEAR ABBY


Woman's longtime affair

now brings her only pain


DEAR ABBY: I met
"Guy" seven years ago and fell
deeply in love. We dated for a
couple of months, but one day
with no warning he broke up
with me on my voicemail.
Three weeks after the
breakup, Guy came to my
home. It was the week of
his wedding, which he never
bothered to mention. I later
heard he had been married
from a mutual friend. I knew
Guy had been seeing some-
one, but he never indicated
that it was serious.
We have been having an
affair ever since our breakup.
Because I love him, I can't say
-no to him. Hell go through
periods where he says he's
getting divorced. He even
told my mom that Then he
calls and says they're going
to work it out I never pushed.
I want him to be happy even
if it's not with me and I want
no part in causing a divorce,
Every time I start to get over
Guy, he comes around again.
It's like he has radar.
The last time we slept to-
gether, a month ago, he told
me he thought he had mar-
ried the wrong woman. The
next day, he admitted he has
too much at stake to make a
change. I am in so much pain.
I don't want to be his mistress.
If I tell his wife, Guy will never
speak to me again. Should I
tell her? RUNNER-UP IN
CHEYENNE
DEAR RUNNER-UP:
Whether you're willing to


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
admit it to yourself or not, by
continuing the affair with Guy
you HAVE been trying to sab-
otage his marriage. Your first
clue that Guy wasn't much of
a man should have been when
he used voicemail to "break
up" seven years ago. He has
now made it plain that he isn't
going to leave his wife.
Haven't you recognized by
now that he is concerned only
with his own gratification and
doesn't care who is hurt by
his actions? This Guy will
waste as much, of your time
as you are willing to give. For
your own sake, call a halt and
get your head straight. You
won't stop hurting until you
draw the line.
DEAR ABBY: Last year I
decided to pursue a career as
a foreign diplomat My wife
and I weighed the pros and
cons and concluded that the
opportunity was worth-the
separation from family and
friends. I'm proud that I'll be
able to provide the kind of life
for my family that we have
always wanted, and I'm set to
begin training soon.
We have begun spreading
the news, and most of our


relatives and friends share
our excitement My wife's
sister, "Lucinda," however, is
furious. Her objections start-
ed with snide little "jabs" but
have grown into a full-blown
assault. She is accusing me of
ruining her life and threaten-
ing to cut off all contact un-
less we reconsider. My wife
is distraught from the bad-
gering and I'm afraid their
relationship is on the verge of
collapse.
Should I bow to Lucinda's
threats or follow our dream
and risk being disowned by
a member of the family? I'm
afraid I have inadvertently
ruined my wife's relationship
with her sister. SECOND
THOUGHTS IN MINNE-
SOTA
DEAR SECOND
THOUGHTS: Unless you
want the remainder of your
marriage and your career to
be dictated by your wife's sis-
ter, do not back down. Lucin-
da appears to be an insecure,
and possibly troubled, woman
who is trying to control you
and your wife through, emo-
tional blackmail. You have a
bright not to mention fasci-
nating future ahead of you.
So follow your chosen path
and do not allow your sister-
in-law to continue to interfere.
To fold now would only be the
beginning of your problems.

Columbia High's Ben Bell brings down a Gainesville High runner on Sept. 11, 2009.

Tigers look to turn the tables


Columbia High returned
to its district-winning ways
last year, taking the top
spot in 4-4A.
The Tigers won a play-
off game in coach Craig
Howard's: second season
and finished with an 8-3-1
record. Howard is 12-9-1
at CHS.
The season started off
sour with a 13-12 loss to
Fort White High in the


kickoff classic game. The
Tigers will be looking for
revenge when the teams
meet Friday in Arrowhead
Stadiwn. ''
Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
Columbia features one
of the top recruited players
in the nation in defensive
lineman Timmy Jernigan.
Jernigan said he has had
more than 50 offers, from
schools such as Florida,


Florida State, Alabama and
USC.
The Tigers had to find
a new quarterback for
Howard's spread offense
and Nigel Atkinson is
getting the nod. .
Columbia will have to
replace running back Tiger
Powell, one of the best
to have played the posi-
tion in the school's 99-year
history.
