DREAM MACHINE




DELIVERS THE GOODS


Kids from four
counties will
receive gift bags.

By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com
The quest of the Christmas
Dream Machine, to help
make the holidays happy for
underprivileged kids within a
four-county area, kept rolling
Monday.
The local organization, which provides
donated clothes and toys to children in
need whose families meet the organi-
zation's income criteria, gave away gift
bags for approximately 150 children at
one of its distribution events at the Lake
City Mall.
Gift bags for about 300 children
were distributed Friday and other dis-
bursements will take place today and
Wednesday. A total of 950 kids from
Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton and
Union counties are expected to receive
bags from the Dream Machine.
Local groups or individuals have been
sponsoring children off the Christmas
Dream Machine's Christmas tree and
buying them gifts on their wish lists
since Nov. 1, said Meally Jenkins, the
organization's founder and director.

By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
Several local businesses will improve
their exterior with the help of a grant
from the City of Lake City.
The Lake City Community
Redevelopment Agency approved nine
facade grant applications during its
meeting Monday night, at an expense
to the CRA of more than $49,000. The
City of Lake City Council meets as the
CRA.
The facade grant program provides
financial assistance to businesses within
the CRA area for renovations to the
exteriors of businesses.
City staff went through a thorough
review of each application, said City
Manager Wendell Johnson. Improving
the appearance of buildings in the CRA
area helps improve a business' value.

City to fund

4 cemeteries'

maintenance

Council's action relieves
upkeep from citizens; total
cost for first year, $83,500.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter. com
Four cemeteries in city limits will now
be consistently maintained thanks to the
help of the City of Lake City Council.
The council approved funding for a
Department of Corrections inmate crew
to maintain Memorial, Oaklawn, Garden
of Rest and Wilson cemeteries during a
meeting Monday night.
Local citizen Wanda Sheppard spoke
to the council about the upkeep of
the Garden of Rest Cemetery several
months ago, said City Manager Wendell
Johnson.
Private citizens have had to maintain
the cemetery because there is no clear
owner. Wilson Cemetery is also without
a clear owner and is not being main-
tained.
* City Councilman Jake Hill indicated
the city should look at maintaining all
the cemeteries in the city limits, he
said.

Deportations ,
loom for Haitians


MIAMI Haitian advo-
cates angrily called on the
Obama administration on
Monday to stop detain-
ing Haitians with criminal
records and halt depor-
tations scheduled next
month, saying those flights
amount to a death sentence
amid a cholera outbreak
in the earthquake-ravaged
country.
The U.S. government's
abrupt decision to resume
deporting Haitians also will
deter others without crimi-
nal records from applying
to temporarily stay and
work in the U.S., cutting
off a lifeline to quake survi-
vors, they said at a rally in
Miami's Little Haiti.
"Without letting us know
they'll resume deportations
to Haiti, at a time when Haiti
is living under its gravest
crisis, it's so unfair," said
Marleine Bastien, execu-
tive director of Haitian
Women of Miami. "It's sup-
posed to be a progressive
government We're gravely
disappointed by this."
More than 61,000
Haitians have applied for
temporary protected status,
which allows illegal immi-
grants from countries expe-
riencing armed conflict or
environmental disasters to
stay and work in the U.S.
for 18 months. Only those
who were already living in
the U.S. illegally when the
earthquake struck Jan. 12
are eligible.
More than half the
applications have come
from Florida, according
to U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services.
Officials have said they
expected 70,000 to 100,000
Haitians to apply before the
Jan. 18 deadline.
Meanwhile, U.S.
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement confirmed
Dec. 10 that deportations
are set to resume next

Jean-Robert Lafortune (left foreground) talks to a reporter as

GM using oil spill
material in Volt

NEW ORLEANS -
Boom from the BP oil spill
is getting a new charge from
the maker of the Chevrolet
Volt electric car.
General Motors said that
instead of going to landfills,
roughly 100 miles of plastic
boom material will be con-
verted into vehicle parts.
The parts deflect air around
the vehicle's radiator.
The Volt, a compact car,
can go about 35 miles on
battery power before a
gasoline engine kicks in to
generate electricity.
At the height of the
oil spill, more than 2,550
miles of boom was used
in the Gulf of Mexico to
try to keep oil from reach-
ing shore. Today, response
officials said only 1 mile of
boom is being used.

College student
dies on birthday

ORLANDO A
University of Central


Florida student was killed
in a head-on collision on
her 21st birthday.
Authorities said Chelsea
Torres was driving on the
wrong side of an Orlando
road early Sunday when
her vehicle smashed into
a car driven by 23-year-
old Elvis Felix. Felix, of
Orlando, was treated and
released from a hospital.
Torres was not wearing a
seat belt Investigators said
they don't know why she
was heading the wrong way.
It is not yet known whether
alcohol was involved.
Friends said Torres was
looking forward to her mile-
stone birthday for weeks.

said an 8- to 9-month old

'Success Measures' website helps

understand assessment tests


By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter. corn
A new online tool to help
parents including those in
Columbia County under-
stand upcoming state standard
and assessment changes that
affect their children is now
available.
According to a Florida
Department of Education news
release, the DOE recently
launched the Success Measures
website. The site allows its visi-
tors to view information on
academic requirements, state
standards, assessments and
changes in assessments that
will happen in the spring 2011
and spring 2012.
One such change is
the Florida End-of-Course
Assessment, which will first
be introduced to Algebra 1
students in' spring 2011, said
Kitty McElhaney, director
of curriculum, assessment
and accountability in the dis-
trict. Algebra 1 ninth-graders


will take the EOC instead of
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, McElhaney
said, but Algebra 1 students in
10th grade will take the EOC
and the FCAT math. Middle
school Algebra 1 students will
take the EOC plus their grade-
appropriate FCAT test, she
said.
All of the testing changes
are listed on the Success
Measures site, which is helpful
for parents and user-friendly,
McElhaney said.
"It's parent-friendly," she
said. "It's easy to use. It will
help parents understand what
the academic requirements
are for their children within
the public school system and
what state assessments their
students will be taking at
whatever grade level they're
enrolled in."
Another aspect of the site is
the Success Measures Pathway
Tool, where users can input
the school year, grade level
and anticipated courses their


student will take. The Pathway
Tool generates a report stat-
ing which assessments will be
taken with the courses and
the content the assessments
cover.
McElhaney said the Success
Measures site gives parents
the opportunity to plan out
their child's academic expecta-
tions while providing help with
curriculum content.
"Now a parent can see 'this
is what my child needs to know
this year,'" she said. "It gives
them that information on the
curriculum that maybe they
have difficulty understanding,
but it's more transparent."
According to the news
release, the website focuses
on assessments like the FCAT
and EOCs, but will be updated
in the future to include all state
assessments like postsecond-
ary readiness and certification
exams.

In tough economy,

Santas also suffering


TAMARA LUSH
Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG Craig
McTavish a.k.a. Santa has the
beard. He has the belly. He even
has a few tricks up his sleeve, like
* pulling up to parties on his Harley-
Davidson in full Kris Kringle garb.
But there's one thing he doesn't
have: work.
For freelance Santas, this holiday
season has been more "no, no, no,"
than "ho, ho, ho." Bookings have
declined as paying $125 an hour for
Santa to visit a holiday party has
become an unaffordable luxury. It's
the second year of declining parties
and events, Santas say.
"This year has been a bust as
far as making any money," said
McTavish, a retired firefighter who
co-owns a landscaping business
with his son. "I've booked nothing.
Usually there's always something
for Christmas Eve, but I don't even
have that."
In addition to knowing which chil-
dren have been bad or good, the
modern-day Santa also hears which


families don't have enough money
for presents.
"You can see the downturn from the
chair," said Nicholas Trolli, the presi-
dent of the Amalgamated Order of
Real Bearded Santas a 1,700-mem-
ber social group the Boston Herald
once dubbed "The Nation's Premier
Fraternity of A-List Santas."
Trolli lives in Sarasota., but travels
around the country as a hired Santa.
On a recent day, he worked a mall in
Kansas City that had to lower photo
prices by 20 percent.
"People are telling us they just
can't afford a photo with Santa,"
Trolli said..
Even in-demand Santas with real
beards have had to slash rates, Trolli
said. They once commanded $200
an hour, but now they're charging
half that.
Trolli said that anecdotally, his
members' bookings are off about 25
percent. Other Santas around the
nation said that in good years, they
booked 40 events a season and are
down to fewer than 10. Others who
once booked 10 events a year are
down to none.


MACHINE: Providing gifts

Continued From Page 1A


Sponsorship finished
Monday, she said.
"The Christmas Dream
Machine is a way for the
community to come for-
ward and help those who
are less fortunate through
our organization," Jenkins
said.
Any money donated
to the Christmas Dream
Machine is used to buy
gifts for the remaining
names on the tree, she
said.
About 20 volunteers,
whom Jenkins said have
all donated their time, are
helping the organization.
"None of us have been
receiving a salary for 22
Christmases," she said,
"and we're certainly not


going to start now."
Gary Laxton of Lake
City, who has volunteered -
with the Christmas Dream
Machine for five years,
said the gift distribution is
meaningful for recipients.
"You see the look on the
peoples' faces and you can
just really tell they appreci-
ate the help they get," he
said.
Ashton Martin of Lake
City, who has volunteered
with the organization for
about five years, said she
enjoys helping those who
are underprivileged.
"It's neat to be able to
wake up on Christmas
morning and know that we
helped to give these kids
Chrigtmas," she said.

GRANTS: To help businesses with renovations

Continued From Page lA


"Success builds success," he
said.
The businesses are spread out
across the CRA from Baya South to
the railroad tracks, Johnson said.
Project costs range from $3,000 to
$10,000.
"Once they finish it will be a vis-
ibility of what the CRA is supposed
to do," he said. "It will manifest
itself.
The grant recipients will be reim-
bursed for 75 percent of the cost
of the renovations, Johnson said.
Grant recipients have one full year
to do the work.
Approved businesses are:


Keaton Locksmiths, window
replacement and a 75 percent match
of $3,562.50;
Jeffrey Mears, window replace-
ment and block openings on west
wall at an empty building (Sassy's),
$2,;813.88;
Morse Chiropractic, replace
exterior door and new aluminum
carport, $4,987.50;
Love My Dentist with two qual-
ifying buildings, -new sign, paint
building and restructure brick
facade of flower bed, $7,318.82;

Chamber of Commerce, new sign,
$3,859.22;

sure clean and paint, $3,847.50
CRA Member Eugene Jefferson
was absent from the meeting.


CEMETERIES: Maintenance to be funded by city

Continued From Page 1A


"The more I thought I
about it, I felt it was a viable
suggestion," Johnson said.
The public works depart-
ment reduced its staff in
2008 and already uses a
DOC work crew to assist
in other projects, including
maintaining Memorial and
Oaklawn cemetery.
Hiring an additional crew
to focus mainly on the cem-
eteries would free up the
work crew for other city
projects, Johnson said.
The total cost for the
project is $83,500 in the
first year, which includes
labor and buying mowers
and other maintenance
equipment. The annual
cost would be $58,000
"I think it's money well
spent," he said.
Hill thanked the council
for their support on the
project.
"It's something that
needs to be done," he said.
Previously, Sheppard
and other volunteers in
the community cleaned up
Garden of Rest on their
own.
"They cleaned it up and
have it looking like a cem-
etery," Hill said.


The people in the cem-
etary can't do anything for
themselves now, Sheppard
said.
"Thank you to the city,"
she said. "I'm just pleased
they agreed to do what
they should do."
In other business:
The city received a
check from the Florida
Municipal Trust Insurance
for property premium
returns for $26,937, which
is about 25 percent of the
premium.
The council approved


entering into a contract
with JD James, Inc. to fur-
nish and install an auto-
mated weather observa-
tion system at the Lake
City Municipal Airport for
$121,444.04.
This is something the air-
portneeds, said Councilman
George Ward. The current
one is beyond repair, old
and obsolete. The. system
is used by pilots coming in '
to get weather updates.
"It's very vital to the safe-
ty of the airport," he said.
Council approved cer-


tain city property as sur-
plus to its. needs available
for sale at a public auction.
Other city property was
declared obsolete, unser-
viceable or beyond eco-
nomic repair and unable
to be sold. The property
will be removed from fixed
assets.
Councilman Eugene
Jefferson was absent from
the meeting.
The next City of Lake
City Council meeting is 7
p.m. Jan. 18 at City Hall.

OTHER
OPINION


No clear

time for

discussion

or debate

f the American people
were looking for
change as a result of
the November election,
they'll obviously have to
wait until January's change in
Congress to get the complete
shift.
'Extraordinary weekend
and holiday votes have been a
hallmark of the Democrat-led
Congress during President
Barack Obama's term. The situ-
ation hasn't changed.
An issue that once was
important enough to have taken
weeks of debate, the "don't ask,
don't tell" policy regarding gays
in military service, was swept
away in a Saturday vote.
Looking back over the past
year, it's obvious that rush-
ing to conclusions has been
the hallmark of the current
Congress. A year ago, a major
health-care vote was held on
Christmas Eve. The actual
health-care bill, the impact of
which is still not known, was
pushed through in less than a
few days in February.
Last week, in a whirlwind,
there were votes to extend
Bush-era tax rates as well as
the odd attempt to make eco-
nomic stimulus by cutting pay-
roll payments to Social Security.
While there is much hailing
of the votes of recent days as
compromise, and they were,
there also is still the problem
of a Congress that pushes
through sweeping changes
without clear time for discus-
sion or debate or to assess the
potential hidden impacts.
The past week was, we hope,
the final evidence of why the
American people were so angry
at the polls in November.

Gun lobby blocks efforts


to stem border violence


WASHINGTON
nce again the gun
lobby has stepped
up to oppose"
public safety,
this time along
the Southwest border where
thousands upon thousands
of Mexicans have died from
battlefield weapons bought in
the United States by drug cartel
representatives -and hafided to
assassins, some as young as 14.
In a move that should have
been made much earlier
but apparently was delayed
for pure political consid-
erations, the White House
and the Justice Department
have cleared a proposed
policy that would require
Southwestern gun dealers
to report to the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms
and Explosives multiple sales
of high powered semi-auto-
matic weapons. Simply put,
licensed retailers along that
long stretch of bloody inter-
national border would have
to immediately notify ATF
when two or more AK47s
or similar rifles above .22-
caliber and with a detachable
magazine were purchased
by one person in a five-day
period. These weapons are
highly prized by the. cartels.
It would not stop the sale,
just allow authorities to
immediately seek out the
buyer and try to determine
his motives. The policy
would last for six months.
That sounds reasonable
doesn't it, considering that
anyone making multiple-buys
of firearms of this caliber
isn't likely to be using them
to hunt rabbits or anything
else not human? How about
outfitting an army of mur-
dering thugs? Does that
seem possible? But there is
a weakness in the policy. A
bulk buyer could go to 20
different stores, purchas-
ing a weapon at each. The
policy also would not cover


Dan K.Thomasson
gun shows where even nor-
mal transactions need not be
reported, a loophole strenu-
ously defended by the gun
lobby.
.Mexican authorities
believe this would be a big
step in helping them fight
the vicious drug gangs that
have killed some 30,000
men, women and children
along the border in the last
year. The carnage from the
firearms supplied from this
country is so bad that it has
all but destroyed the tour-
ist industry in Northern
Mexico and disrupted growth
of U.S. companies that have
built plants there. In recent
months the violence and just
the fear of it have spread
south, threatening even
posh tourist attractions like
Acapulco and Cancun.
But "reasonable" is not a
word organizations like the
National Rifle Association
and the National Shooting
Sports Foundation, which
represents gun dealers and
manufacturers, recognize.
The NRA has not made itself
the most powerful, if utterly
irresponsible, lobbying
force in the history of the
Congress by being reason-
able. In fact these groups,
whose spokesmen are mas-
ters of manipulation, disin-
genuousness and political
extortion have become even
more unreasonable, if pos-
sible, since the U.S. Supreme
Court decided last year that
the Second Amendment
extended the right to bear
arms to individuals and not
just "militia" as had been the


assumption of past courts.
So when the plan to put the
new policy into effect leaked
last week before it could
be published in the Federal
Registry, the gunslingers
went predictably nuts, accus-
ing the administration of
unnecessarily burdening
the poor gun dealers, many
of whom by the way have
become rich peddling arms
to the border gangs. The
lobby, -of course, equated
this simple move to disrupt
the gun traffic south as the
first step toward register-
ing firearms, which in the
world of gun obsession is
equivalent to crying fire in
a crowded theater. The NRA
then shamelessly reiterated
its support of law and order
despite the contradiction
between what it professes
and what it works against,
which in reality is any dis-
ruption of its cash flow.
The policy is moving ahead
but the pervasive fear of
the lobby's influence appar-
ently almost scuttled it. The
national press reported that
although President Obama
had promised Mexican
President Filipe Calderon he
would help disrupt the fire-
arms traffic early last sum-
mer, the policy proposal got
delayed by presidential advis-
ers worried about the impact
on Democratic election pros-
pects. That turned out to be'
a futile gesture given the
November results.
There is no justification
imaginable for bulk sales of
these weapons other than
deadly mischief. With thou-
sands of gun dealers plying
their trade in the direct vicin-
ity of the horrendous killing
grounds, the policy will give
authorities on both sides of
the border a better chance to
cut the losses.

Service.


OTHER OPINION

Addressing the dietary paradox


It is an indisputable fact
that hungry children
don't learn well. It is
likewise indisputable
that childhood obesity is
on the increase. Hunger in the
midst of an obesity epidemic is
one of the most puzzling para-
doxes of our time.
The Healthy, Hunger-Free
Kids Act aims to replace the
junk food for sale on pub-
lic school campuses with
healthier options by giving
the FDA authority to set
nutrition standards for food
in cafeterias, as well as for a
la carte items such as those


sold in vending machines.
The $4.5 billion expansion
of the school lunch program,
which feeds 16 million chil-
dren who qualify for free or
reduced-price school meals
also will raise the number of
children in school lunch pro-
grams by 115,000 and bump
the reimbursement rate to
school districts for meals by
six cents. The idea is to trim
the amount of sugar, fat and
carbs available in many of
today's public school cafete-
rias and vending machines.
Though there are legiti-
mate questions about imple-


meeting such a program in
the midst of a tight economy,
the act's benefits outweigh
those questions. President
Barack Obama said he hopes
to address the issue sepa-
rately. At least those kids who
are unfortunate enough to
live in "food deserts" will
have the opportunity to get
healthy meals during the
school week. The future is in
the hands of today's children,
so we can give them a hand
today by teaching them the
values of a healthy diet.

The rich

should

pay more

in taxes

On his television
show last week, ,
Sean Hannity had
a guest backed up'
against the ropes& .-
Hannity was employing a recur-
ring gambit that he finds useful
against liberals who maintain
that the rich should be taxed
at a higher rate than the rest
of us.
"How much is too much?"
Hannity demanded. "Forty-five
percent? Fifty-five? Sixty-five?
In fact, is there any tax rate that
would be too high for you?!"
His guest was badgered into
incoherence. But the proper .,
response might have been to
challenge Hannity to specify
the minimum tax rate that we
could impose on the wealthy
and still consider them to be
legitimate members of the
American body politic. Thirty-
five percent? Twenty-five? Ten?;
In fact, is there any tax rate too :
low for the wealthy?
This episode occurred amid
the debate over the extension
of the Bush tax cuts.
The debate took place on
at least two levels: In practical
terms, the primary complaint of
those who object to the legisla-:-
tion that extends the tax cuts
is that it ignores the long-term
health of our economy, which
was sacrificed, they say, for
short-term benefits, like the
stimulating effect of lower taxes
for the middle class and the
extension of unemployment
benefits.
Proponents of the legislation,
on the other hand, argue that
the wealthy will use their tax
cuts to create sorely needed -
jobs.
Maybe. But the
Congressional Budget Office
says that the impact of the tax
cuts on job creation will be min-
imal. In fact, the job-creation
rationale is suspect because
it fails to consider a pbint of
diminishing returns: extend the.
logic to its absurd conclusion
and the wealthy should devote
all of their profits to creating
new jobs, paying no taxes, at all.
The debate has interesting
abstract elements, as well:
Some proponents of the exten-
sion express considerable
sympathy for the wealthy as
individuals, picturing an elevat-
ed tax rate as an unjust punish-
ment for talented, hardworking
entrepreneurs. Many of them
argue for a flat, non-progressive
tax rate that treats everyone
the same.
But, really, the rich should
pay proportionately more
in taxes, and the rest of us
shouldn't feel obligated to apol-
ogize for it.
Really, one wonders why
we, who imagine ourselves
a "Christian" nation, devote
so much admiration and def-
erence to the wealthy. God
blessed Solomon and Job with
abundance, but by the time we
reach the New Testament, the
rich are usually the bad guys.
The beggar Lazarus wound up
in Paradise; the rich man, who
spared no more than crumbs
from his table for the poor,
went to Hell.
Once a person has many mil-
lions of dollars more than are
required for a decent life, the
rest of us shouldn't be embar-
rassed to expect a significant
contribution to the common
good,

Tebow gets another start


'-'


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow (15) runs for a 40-yard
touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in Oakland, Calif. on Sunday.


Runs 40 yards for one
score and throws for
33-yard touchdown.


By.ARNIE STAPLETON
Associated Press
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. The
Denver Broncos don't care if
everyone knows it, including the
Houston Texans: Tim Tebow will
start again Sunday.
Rather than keep everybody
guessing, interim coach Eric
Studesville made the unusual
move Monday of announcing that
Tebow would be under center
when the Broncos (3-10) host the,
Texans (5-9).
Studesville said Kyle Orton is
still bothered by bruised ribs and
that Tebow did a good job manag-
ing the game plan, the team and
the crowd in his first NFL start
Sunday despite Denver's 39-23
loss at Oakland.
"Well, the reason right now
was that we felt that Tim played
well yesterday, ran our offense
effectively," Studesville said.
"Compounding that was the fact
that Kyle still was rehabbing ...
and we just felt like prolonging


this later into the week wasn't the
best thing for our preparation and
practice."
So, now the Texans don't have
to worry about preparing for two
quarterbacks, one a right-handed
prolific passer and the other a
rookie southpaw.
Studesville thought the benefit
to the Broncos outweighed any
concerns about the Texans know-
ing it.
"I think they'll certainly have
tape on him now to have a game
plan," Studesville said. "What,
they'll do differently ... we're
going to do some things differ-
ently because we'll have more
information on him too, now. So,
how that all plays out I'm not
exactly sure."
Tebow, who was stunningly
selected with the 25th overall pick
in the April draft by former coach
Josh McDaniels, had thrown just
one NFL pass before Sunday and
most of his two dozen snaps had
come in specialty situations such
as short-yardage and goal line
packages.
His repertoire was limited
Sunday because of bad weather
and offensive coordinator Mike
McCoy's conservative game


calling but he showed enough
to merit more playing time and
perhaps more of a chance to throw
the ball.
"We know more now about Tim
and what he can do in a game, we
can give him things," Studesville
said. "But the entire game plan is
still based on what we think gives
us the best chance against the
Houston Texans, and that's what's
going to determine the volume of
the playbook more than anything
else."
Tebow had moments of great-
ness and moments of grief in his
first career start.
By the end of the first quarter,
he had joined Kordell Stewart and
Michael Vick as the only quar-
terbacks in NFL history to run
for a 40-yard TD and throw for a
30-yard TD in the same game.
He was a bit lucky: his 40-yard
scamper was supposed to be a
hand-off and his 33-yard TD strike
went through the hands of cor-
nerback Stanford Routt before
Brandon Lloyd caught it as he
rolled out of bounds.
Tebow completed eight pass-
es for 138 yards and ran eight
times for 78 and wasn't picked off
Sunday.

Columbia High's girls weightlifting team celebrates its 2010 state championship. Columbia is the first team other than Spruce Creek High to win state.


CHS girls weightlifting state championship a top story


By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter. corn
There had been
only one weight-
lifting champion
in the history of
girls higli school
weightlifting. Spruce Creek
won the first five state
championships before
Columbia High captured a
state crown on Feb. 13.
That performance by the
Lady Tigers is one of Lake
City Reporter Sports' top
stories of 2010.


Two lifters from the
Lady Tigers, Celeste
Gomez and Alaina
Timmons, won individual
state championships.
Gomez set a state record
in the 183-pound weight
class with a total lift of
440 pounds (225 bench
press and 215 clean and
jerk). Timmons won at 129
pounds.
"It was amazing," Gomez
said after winning the state
championship. "It was the
best time of my life."
Three others Lady


Tigers earned team points,
including Pheobe Johnson
(fourth at 110 pounds),
Tara Stephens (third at
119 pounds) and Amber
Thomas (sixth at 139
pounds) to help claim the
team championship.
"You coach to win
championships," CHS
coach Mitch Shoup said.
"You coach to mentor and
develop relationships, but
you want to be successful."
If you measure success
by championships, the
Lady Tigers could receive


no higher honor. Gomez,
in particular, owned her
weight class. She became
a two-time champion in the
meet.
"She was kind of a
celebrity in the gym,"
Shoup said. "People knew
who she was whenever we
went somewhere, and they
would ask to take pictures
and videos with her..She
was more excited about
the team championship
than winning the individual
CHS continued on 2B


High school teams

Columbia High's girls
weightlifting team pro-
duced the seventh state
title in the school's history.
There were other teams
that excelled at CHS and
Fort White High in the
2010 calendar year.


Columbia's girls ten-
nis team made the state
field. The Lady Tigers won
district, then went on to
defeat Pedro Menendez
and Ridgeview high

Lady Huskies tie


UCLA win streak


Associated Press

NEW YORK After
the final buzzer sounded
and another win was in the
books, Connecticut coach
Geno Auriemma found his
family in the stands. He
hugged his smiling mother,
then kissed his happy wife.
Turns out, No. 88 meant
something special after all.
Already with no equal
in women's basketball,
UConn won its 88th
straight game Sunday to
match the men's record
set by coach John Wooden
and his UCLA teams from
1971-74.
Tiffany Hayes scored 26
points and Maya Moore
added 22 to help the top-
ranked Huskies rout No.
11 Ohio State 81-50 in the
Maggie Dixon Classic at
Madison Square Garden.


'"The number's the num-
ber. I don't know if that
changes me a whole lot
right now," Auriemma said.
UConn already owned
the longest winning streak
in NCAA women's basket-
ball history. The Huskies
(10-0) can surpass the
UCLA men today against
No. 15 Florida State.
Connecticut matched
the Bruins' mark before a
crowd of 15,232 the sec-
ond-biggest for a women's
game at Madison Square
Garden. With 40 seconds
left, the fans rose and
chanted "88! 88!"
The no-nonsense
Auriemma had down-
played the significance of
this milestone. But unlike
most of their previous wins
during the streak, UConn
players stuck around and
celebrated at halfcourt.


in the final 1:30.
Florida (8-3) got a
season-high 21 points from
Erving Walker and double-
doubles by Vernon Macklin
(13 points, 10 rebounds)
and Alex Tyus (10 points,
11 rebounds).

title again."
Timmons wasn't
looking for an individual
honor going in, but her
first-place finish helped
give Columbia its narrow
one-point victory over
runner-up Navarre High.
"I was very excited,"
Timmons said. "I went in
thinking I could finish
second, but before the
match I told coach that it
was going to be my day."
In the end, Columbia
showed that hard work
pays off in the form of a
state championship.
"It really was a true
miracle," Stephens said
after the meet. "Spruce
Creek was expected to be
at the top, but we're the
hardest working team
in the state and maybe
the nation. I guess it was
truly a blessing, and what
we meant to happen,
happened."

Leandra Neal, Chrissie

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Don't let the
little things get to you. An-
ger is a waste of time. If
you really want to get to the
bottom of something that is
bothering you, open, honest
communication is all that's
required. **
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Think about what
might please you and you
will come up with the per-
fect surprise for someone
you love. Lots of traveling
about and communication
with friends and relatives
will help you firm up your
plans for end-of-year festivi-
ties. ****
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): Take care of
money matters and the little
things that you promised to
do for others. Set your goals
for the upcoming year. Tell
someone special exactly
how you feel. Touch base
with people you don't get to
see often. ***
CANCER(June21-July
22): Emotions will surface
and greater involvement
with your peers, friends and
lover will help raise your
spirits. A makeover or pur-
chasing something that will
boost your confidence or
make you feel particularly
good should be scheduled
for late in the day. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug.


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

22): Someone will be easily
offended if you aren't sensi-
tive about a recent situation.
A secret meeting or talks
will leave you in a difficult
position if someone asks
you specifically to discuss
such matters. Use your
imagination to avoid, direct
answers. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Don't look back or
worry about what's already
come and gone. Take ad-
vantage of what's ahead of
you. Changes at home and
within your relationships
appear to be favorable and
can get you moving in a
positive and productive di-
rection. ****
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Stick to what you
know and do best. Refrain
from letting someone you
live with pressure you into
something you don't feel
right about doing. A love
relationship from your past
will remind you of a situ-
ation you are facing now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Don't take on
someone else's responsi-
bilities when you should
be working toward your
own objectives. Participate
in events that allow you to


mingle with people having
common goals and inter-
ests. Learn from your past
and you will excel. *** ,
SAGIITARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Listen care-
fully. Say as little as pos-
sible. There are too .many
variables involved for you
to jump in and make state-
ments or rash decisions.
Your courtesy will pay off.
3 stars
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): It's OK to be
passionate about something
you are doing or believe in
or to strive to do something
special or different Don't
let any criticism stand in
your way. Be your own
judge. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Use your inge-
nuity and you will come up
with a brilliant idea that will
please and impress. Don't
let an old partner back into
your life when you should
be moving forward. It's
time to develop new rela-
tionships. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Uncertainty
will lead to a poor deci-
sion regarding work. Don't
make a move that is based
on false assumptions. Focus
on home, family and your
personal life. Good fortune,
gifts and positive results will
come your way. *****

FOR BETTER OR WORSE


DEAR ABBY: My beauti-
ful 20-year-old daughter was
killed in a car accident. I am
writing this not'only for my-
self, but for all parents who
have lost a child, and to all
of the wonderful people who
asked, "What can I do for
you?"
At the time there wasn't
much anyone could do to
help, but after two years I
have an answer: Accept me
for who I am NOW.
When Rachel came into
my life, it changed me pro-
foundly. Losing her did the
same. Her father and I work
hard to honor her memory,
but we will never "get over it"
to the degree of being who
we were before. I am differ-
ent now. In some ways I
think better. I am kinder,
more patient, more apprecia-
tive of small things, but I am
not as outgoing nor as quick
to laugh.
I know people mean well
when they encourage me
to get on with my life, but
this IS my life. My priorities
have changed. My expecta-
tions of what my future will
hold have changed. Please
extend to me again the offer
of "anything I can do" and,
please, accept me as I am
now. DIFFERENT NOW
IN RIVERVIEW, FIA.
DEAR DIFFERENT
NOW: Please accept my pro-


II


,; I


The girl appears to have
no desire to have me in her
life. I don't know if I'll ever
be able to view her as my
stepdaughter. Yes, she's my
husband's but she is his,
not "ours."
I accept that my feelings
are somewhat selfish, but I
am not sure how to deal with
them. I have been in and
out of counseling with no
change. Please help. NOT
A "REAL" MOM
DEAR NOT: Stop beat-
ing yourself up for having
unpleasant feelings. If your
description is accurate, your
husband has allowed his
daughter to "clique" you
out. While it's understand-
able that because of their
long separation his daughter
could be fixated on him and
vice versa, he should let her
know that both of you will
love her if she'll give you the
chance.
Look at it from her per-
spective. If she's a young
woman, she is dealing with
a lot of emotions right now.
Try to be patient, treat her
warmly when you see her,
and give her a chance to get
to know you. Good relation-
ships aren't hatched fully
formed; they take time to
build.

Angeles, CA 90069.


Abigail Van Buren

found sympathy for the tragic
loss of your daughter. I hope
that your letter will help any-
one who doesn't understand
that the death of a child is the
most devastating loss parents
can suffer and that the expe-
rience is life-changing. They
may get beyond it, but they
never get "over" it. To expect
that they would is unrealis-
tic, because it's a wound that
may become less visible but
never goes away.
DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band and I struggled for
years to have children. After
many attempts and disap-
pointments we have exhaust-
ed all our options. It has been
extremely difficult for me to
accept.
My husband recently
found his daughter from a
previous relationship. He
knew she existed, but his ex
had kept the girl from him
for many years. He is now
ecstatic and wants to spend
every minute with her. He
tells me how happy he is to
have a daughter. I want to be
supportive, but it kills me.

tion 120.60(3), F S., however, any
person who asked the Permitting Au-
thority for notice of agency action
may file a petition within 14 days of
receipt of this notice, regardless of
the date of publication. A petitioner
shall mail a copy of the petition to
the applicant at the address indicated
above, at the time of filing. The fail-
ure of any person to file a petition
within the appropriate' time periods
shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administra-

or to intervene in this proceeding and
participate as a party to it. Any sub-
sequent intervention (in a proceeding
initiated by other party) will be only
at the approval of the presiding offi-
cer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-106.205,
F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Permitting Au-
thority's action is based must contain
the following information: (a) The
name and address of each agency af-
fected and each agency's file or iden-
tification number, if known; (b) The
name, address and telephone number

and telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any, which
shall be the address for service pur-
poses during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how
the petitioner's substantial rights will
be affected by the agency determina-
tion; (c) A statement of when and
how the petitioner received notice of
the agency action or proposed deci-
sion; (d) A statement of all disputed
'issues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so state; (e) A
concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the agen-
cy's proposed action; (f) A statement
of the specific rules or statutes the
petitioner contends require reversal

posed action including an explana-
tion of how the alleged facts relate to
the specific rules or statutes; and, (g)
A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the
action the petitioner wishes the agen-
cy to take with respect to the agen-
cy's proposed action. A petition that
does not dispute the material facts
upon which the Permitting Authori-
ty's action is based shall state that no
such facts are in dispute and other-
wise shall contain the same informa-
tion as set forth above, as required by
Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because of the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to formulate
final agency, the filing of a petition
mean that the Permitting Authority's
final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this Public
Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit.
Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final de-
cision of the Permitting Authority on
the application have the right to peti-
tion to become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set borth above.
Mediation: Mediation is not availa-
ble for this proceeding.
