John Cole of Richardson
Middle School is on a mis-

Cole, RMS teacher and
RMS FFAand 4-H advisor,
presented his idea to the
Columbia County School
Board at its regular meet-
ing Tuesday.
That idea: Re-opening

has on its campus to teach
FFA and 4-H members the


basic knowledge of main-
taining and repairing both
domestic and foreign auto-
mobiles and other small,
gas engine yard equip-
ment like lawnmowers
and weedeaters.
Through the lessons,:
students will learn how to
check vehicles by practic-
ing on faculty cars, how
to service lawn equipment
and how to properly clean
and detail a car, Cole said.
.The program will be
for FFA and 4-H mem-

his fellow soldiers have
complained about the light,
but U.S. Navy Seabee Jason
Morin is on a mission, one
separate from his mandat-

This is to complete his

He finishes an assign-

the life of the Brooker native

Iraq and is on schedule to

Castro passes 100,000 Twitter followers


HAVANA



Cuba's Maximum Leader
is also on top in cyber-
space.
A Twitter account that
tweets excerpts from
former President Fidel Castro's fre-
quent musings on world affairs has
passed 100,000 followers which
the government said makes it the
first official Cuban-themed Twitter
account to break that threshold.
The account, set up about a year
ago, has sent more than 1,750 tweets
with Castro's thoughts, including his
fears that the world is headed for
nuclear Armageddon, and his warn-
ings that NATO is planning to invade
Libya.
'The U.S. and NATO can't resist
taking advantage of the conflict in
Libya to promote military interven-
tion," read a tweet from Saturday,
quoting from an opinion piece Castro
wrote a few days earlier.
"In every U.S. war, like Vietnam,
the most cynical justifications and
measures prevailed," read another
posted on Sunday.
Castro, 84, stepped down as
Cuban president in 2006 first
temporarily, then permanently
ceding power to his brother Raul.
He remains head of the Communist
Party and often publishes opinion
pieces, called "Reflections," in Cuba's
state-run news media.

District passes facility survey


By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.corn

Every school district-owned space
has been deemed ample and suffi-
cient for its respective purpose after
a facilities survey was conducted,
officials said Tuesday.
The Columbia County School Board
unanimously approved its Educational
Plant Five Year Survey Report a
report on a Florida statute-required
survey of all district facility space
- at its regular meeting.
Lex Carswell, assistant superinten-
dent, presented the survey's report
to the board, which will next be sub-
mitted to the Florida Department of
Education for approval.
According to state law, the survey
must be done every five years to
help formulate plans for housing the
district's educational activities for the
next several years.


"Basically, this (report) is our map
of where our district is going to be in
the next five years in terms of facili-
ties," Carswell said.
All district construction projects
must be survey-approved before the
district can spend its capital outlay
funding on them, Carswell said, fund-
ing that must be used on construc-
tion.
Because Columbia County's dis-
trict is small, Carswell said it had
the option of using DOE employ-
ees to conduct the survey instead of
contracting it out or performing it
in-house.
DOE spent a week in August sur-
veying all of the district's property.
"Anything with a door, they went in
it to look to see if it was satisfactory
and well-maintained," Carswell said.
The survey found all district facili-
ties and schools to be in "fantastic
shape," he said.


"When DOE left in August, they
were amazed that we have what
we have for such a small county,"
Carswell said.
Glenn Hunter, board member,
thanked district staff for working on
the report, which it compiled with
DOE's assistance.
"I would like to thank them for
all their hard work in putting that
together," Hunter said.
In other discussion, the board rec-
ognized Jacob Simmons, a Columbia
High School senior, for being chosen
as the only student to represent the
Columbia County School District at
the DOE's Sunshine State Scholars
program, which was in February.
Simmons was one of 70 students
across Florida chosen and was picked
for his achievements in science,
technology, engineering and math
(STEM).

of something they can do
with their hands," Cole said.
He hoped the community
could also benefit from the
lessons through Saturday
classes on automobile care
and car safety checks for
the public.
Named "Jack's Place,"
the garage will be dedicated
to Jack Haltiwanger, a past


school board member who
taught in Columbia County
for almost 25 years.
Haltiwanger used the
garage as part of his class-
room when the RMS cam-
pus was Columbia High
School, Cole said. He will be
invited back to help teach
the students. Haltiwanger's
passion is invention and

teaching children how to
work with both their hands
and their minds, Cole said.
Bessie Whitfield, RMS
principal, said she was in
support of the program and
Cole said several communi-
ty businesses and mechan-
ics have verbally committed
to helping with the project
by donating tools and sup-
plies. A local car dealer will
also help them to acquire


a car to teach with, Cole
said, which would later be
re-sold to buy more equip-
ment
To raise raises for the
automotive project and
other projects, RMS FFA
and 4-H will hold a chicken
and rice lunch from noon to
1:30 p.m. Saturday, March
19 at the school cafeteria.
Tickets are $6 or a tool
of equal or greater value.

lence.
According to Columbia

scene told Douglas that the
woman was taken by heli-


copter to Shands Hospital
following a domestic vio-
lence incident.
The deputy told Douglas
that Gantt allegedly threw
bricks into the home joint-
ly owned by he and the
woman earlier in the day
and Gantt later returned

her mother and brother.
After the fight, reports
said Gantt jumped into his
vehicle and attempted to
hit the woman but rammed

toward the woman, who
was running away from
him.
Gantt's vehicle later
struck the woman with its
right front and ran over
her leg and pelvic area,
according to reports. She
was initially taken to the
Lake City Medical Center
before being transferred.
Authorities later found
Gantt's vehicle abandoned
about a quarter-mile east
of Tustenuggee Road on
Packard Road. The vehicle
was towed to the sheriff's
office compound.
Authorities were initial-
ly unable to find Gantt for
several days, but he was

high school," Morin said.
"I thought it was a very
unique way of learning."

STATE: Scott asks lawmakers to pass budget

ers, What, can we do to
help you expand your
business?' Ask business
leaders around the world,
'Why wouldn't you move to
Florida?"' he said.
Scott, a millionaire for-
mer hospital chain CEO
who had never served in
office, also said the state
needs to make changes to
civil lawsuits.
"We can't allow frivolous
suits and unreasonable
awards to give our state
a reputation that frightens
away new jobs," he said.
He asked lawmakers to
promptly pass his budget
proposal, which calls for
about $5 billion in spend-
ing cuts including $3.3


billion for education and
eliminating 8,645 state
jobs. The cuts go beyond
the projected $3.6 billion
budget shortfall so he,can
include $1.7 billion in tax
and fee reductions, mostly
through cutting corpo-
rate income and property
taxes.
Legislative leaders have
said their focus is first to
make cuts to meet the
shortfall, and only then
will they consider the gov-
ernor's tax cut proposals..
Scott also called for
changes in the school
system that would allow
more school vouchers,
more charter schools
and higher pay for teach-


FIRE: House had been in family for years

Continued From Page 1A


Tanya Spurling said the
home belonged to herself,
her sister and her cousins,
and it has been in the fam-
ily for years. She said as
a child, her mother Mary
Hopkins learned how to
walk while growing up in
the house.
"They said a trash pile
had been burning next to
the side of the house and
the wind took the fire onto
the house," Spurling said.
SWhile no one was cur-
tently living in the home,
Spurling's relatives had
clothing and other items
in the home when the fire
stared. They were unable
to save anything.
"Everything is gone,"
she said. "The back of the
house is completely gone.
You can't even tell there
were rooms there."
Spurling said she arrived
at the site of the fire around
5:30 a.m., just after fire-

"When I came this
morning, you could hear
the house still creaking
from where it was smol-
dering everything was
pretty much gone," she
said. "My little sister and


my other sister, every-
thing they had was in that
house except for some of
their clothes."
Fire department reports
list the value of the home
at $60,000 and noted that
Tuesday's fire caused
approximately $40,000
worth of damage.


Units from two Columbia

the blaze, while the Lake

had a unit on site.

OPINION


Wednesday, March 9,201 I

AN
OPINION


The problem

with a Libyan

No-Fly Zone

The news out of Libya
is horrific, no doubt
But is the talk
in Congress, the
United Nations and
NATO about imposing a No-Fly
Zone over the embattled coun-
try the solution?
Look at events today for
evidence. Again, Libyan mili-
tary planes bombarded rebels,
hitting, according to press
reports, civilian neighborhoods.
That's what the enforced zone
would be out to stop: Attacks
by plane.
But today; the most severe
damage was done by artillery,
mortars and tanks around
Zawiyah, the town nearest to
Tripoli that rebels have been
able to control at least parts of.
Now, the fighting was hor-
rible; Col. Moammar Gadhafi
has clearly lost the confidence
of a big piece of his country,
and is using extreme force to
try to regain territory. Reports
note that non-combatants, some
as young as five years old, were
killed in the attacks.
But exactly what would a No-
Fly zone do to stop such atroci-
ties? Nothing. Controlling the
air would, however, put those
controlling the air in a position
to do something about the fight
on the ground.
So, here's a dilemma: What
should we do in that case? We
haven't had a good answer in
the past We controlled the air
in northern Iraq, and flew by
while Kurds were slaughtered,
and while in the south, swamp
dwellers were rounded up
and killed, while rebels who
believed we had their back died
or were defeated.
The alternative to standing
by is to use that air force and
attack Libya's army, on the
ground. Should we do that?
But the slippery slope here
is that attacking ground forces
is a step further, closer to a full-
scale invasion.
But what then?
The problem with the use
of military force in these situ-
ations is that if you're going to
actually make a difference, it
really is "In for a penny, in for a
pound."
And right now, we can't
afford another pound.

Taking a year off from the


NFL really not a bad idea


-WASHINGTON
t's hard to know whom
to root for in the current
National Football League
labor dispute, the bil-
lionaires or the multimil-
lionaires. Maybe one should
root for the fans, but only if
they agree that they have been
duped into paying ever increas-
ing amounts to view the spec-
tacle where the average outing
costs a family of four more than
$420 and what they get is often
second rate.
SPerhaps support should go to
those poor benighted souls a
huge number of them Sunday
afternoon widows who find
the game violent, disruptive
to family life and a throwback
to the blood and circuses of
ancient Rome. Or maybe to
the taxpayers victimized by
the greedy NFL owners whose
demands for community back-
ing of new coliseums frequently
are accompanied by extortion:
Build it or we will take the ball
and go elsewhere.
The negotiations over how to
divvy up the annual $9 billion
pot of gold this bone shattering,
brain jarring sport produces
hold out the possibility of no
next season if agreement can't
be reached. The very thought'
of that buckles the knees of the
nation's frustrated jocks and
the radio, television and print
prognosticators who make their
living in endless hours of specu-
lation before, during and after
the games are played. Think
of all the gazillions of dollars
lost in snacks, drinks, bets and
goofy paraphernalia on Sunday
alone both at the stadiums and
in somebody's television room.


LETTERS


Dan K.Thomasson

On second thought, "Oh what a
relief it is."
Having kicked baseball
off the mountain of pastime
popularity and left professional
basketball and hockey drool-
ing, one might expect that the
barons of bash would feel some
responsibility for treating the
masses with a little more defer-
ence, that they would not threat-
en to lock out the objects of
admiration who actually fill the
stadiums at the risk of life and'
limb for a paltry extra $1 billion.
How un-American is that? The
role models for so many little
boys and overfed and immature
adults living vicariously certain-
ly deserve better, don't they?
Well, you would think so if
there weren't any cases where
the monsters of the midway ,
had taken their money and per-
formed poorly. In fact, one of
the most infamous examples is
the highly touted $100 million
lineman from this neck of the
woods who decided last year
he didn't like the system, the
coach or much of anything else
about his employer and made
it so clear in his playing that he
ultimately was benched for the
season. He ciied all the way to
the bank, we are told.
For decades, the owners have
been filling their venues with
exhibition games that have no


bearing on how a team per-
forms when it reaches the real
season. First there were six and
now there are four and one of
the points in the current dispute
between owners and players'
is extending the season to 18
games. That way, of course, the
owners can charge more for the
seats and season tickets that are
too dear already. As a former
season ticket holder, I refused
to go to the pre season games
that essentially were scrimmag-
es to determine whom to keep
on the final roster. Being forced
to buy the tickets to those
games was a reason I gave
up the privilege of having my
pocket picked that and having
too much beer spilled down my
back by drunken revelers.
So whether or not the bil-
lionaires and the multimil-
lionaires can reach detente in
the next six months or turn
off the money spigot for a year
is anyone's guess. With-so
many grave things facing us
as a nation it is difficult to take
this all that seriously. Besides
there are any number of other
entertainment distractions to fill
the void. Take Charlie Sheen,
for instance. I have often won-
dered how anyone can identify
with sports figures that get
paid millions for physical skill
that requires little brain activity
while those who teach and save
lives and run our nation earn so
comparatively little.
Oh, well considering the state
of the NFL franchise in this
town, a year off might not be a
bad idea.

Service.


TO THE EDITOR


What happened to Broadband Authority?


To the editor:
Based on a Reporter article
daated May 1, 2010, and head-
lined, "NF Broadband Authority
ahead of work schedule," the
broadband internet system was
to be available to rural areas. The
article indicated that work would
begin "around July 1 (2010)." The
article continued, indicating that
"an October to November time
frame to be literally delivering
services."
To date, it is not available.
My wife and I reside in a nice
subdivision of 4-plus acre homes,
off of Lake Jefferey Road, west
of 1-75. none of us have cable
available, nor does AT&T provide
high-speed DSL, although three
years ago they said it would be
available in 1 1/2 years. We are
stuck with dial-up service, which
is very slow, and when online, we
can not dial out or receive calls.
We would like to know the
status of the broadband system
and when it will be up and run-
ning. Also what is the status of
the Bascom Norris overpass from
Lake Jefferey Road to Lowes and
Walmart? Again, we have not
heard of any progress.

Visiting Obama's
Disney World
To the editor:
President Obama's world
and the presidency can be
compared to a trip to Disney
World's Magic Kingdom. If
you are a nonachiever, welfare
recipient, liberal, Democrat,
union member or illegal alien,
you are entitled to free mass
transit transportation to the
front gate of Disney World.
Admission fees are waived
and the above-mentioned
folks are given a free Michelle
lunch ticket that includes two
bottles of water, two carrot
sticks, two stalks of celery and
a small container of fat-free
cream cheese. The lunch is
packaged in a biodegradable
"union made" paper bag. While
at Disney World, the above-
mentioned are issued a free
cell phone with 60 minutes of
time and a red, white and blue
government debit card with a
$200 limit for any incidental
purchases. When you exit the
gate, the card is electronically
erased.
For the small business
owners, producers, workers,


achievers, non-union people,
Republicans and tea party
members yod will get to the
gate of Disney World as best
as you can (Notice: tea party
people will be frisked for
guns, knives and Bibles). The
entrance fee will be doubled
to offset the above-mentioned
folks. The price of lunch and
water will necessarily sky-
rocket and will include fried
chicken, burgers, curly fries
and doughnuts. Sorry, no bags
for you folks.
The cast at the Magic
Kingdom will include the fol-
lowing characters: Goofy,
with two actors alternating,
Vice President Joe Biden and
Attorney General Eric Holder;
Daisy Duck, with Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton. Sitting
atop of the castle is Mickey
Mouse (President Obama)
listening to everybody sing we
love you, we love you, to the
tune of "It's a Small World."
He probably will not need ear
transformation for the part.
Sorry about this everybody,
but it is better to laugh so we
won't cry.

Iconic farewell

tour for

Robert Gates :

obert Gates, the
quiet-talking, most-
valuable player of
Republican and
Democratic presi-
dents' cabinets, is taking a long
last lap, in what has become a
farewell tour of sorts.
It is not at all like Cal
Ripken's iconic lap around the
Baltimore Orioles ballpark on
the night he became baseball's
Iron Man of excellence 15
years ago but in his own way,
Bob Gates has also established
himself as an iconic figure of
endurance,.excellence and a
rare work ethic.
After-all, Gates only reluc-
tantly agreed to stay as
Defense Secretary, for just
a bit, after his boss, George
W. Bush, who had lured this
career public servant out of
retirement, had gone home
to Texas. Just long enough to
help the new guy get a handle
on the two wars he'd inherited,
He has long wanted to
be done with it, but his new
Democratic president appar-
ently came to depend upon
the same things his last
Republican president did. So
he kept showing up for work
and doing his job. "Bob Gates;
has proven to be a miserable ;
failure at retirement," his press
'secretary, Geoff Morrell, has
observed.
But in recent weeks Gates
has been appearing before
all his troops today's
troops in the warzone that is
Afghanistan and tomorrow's
troops at West Point and the
Air Force Academy. "This will'
be the fourth and final -
time that I address the cadets"
of the U.S. Military Academy
as Secretary of Defense,"
Gates told West Point cadets
two weeks ago.
But of course Gates has
thought that before, only to .
be persuaded to re-up. So per-
haps the most convincing sign'
that this tour is his farewell is
what happened the other day
in Afghanistan, when a soldier
asked what kept him awake at,
nights.
Gates paused, swallowed,
and his voice broke as he
replied: "You all." It felt a bit
like seeing Robert McNamara
weeping as his resignation was
announced by LBJ in that ear-
lier un-won (but not yet lost)
war. McNamara's Elba was a
decompression perch as presi-
dent of the World Bank. But all
Gates wants is out.
On his farewell swing,
Gates chose to go out with un-
Washingtonian straight talk,
challenging the services to rise
to the new challenges of the
21st Century. At West Point,
he warned against "next-war-it'
is," saying: "I must tell-you,
when it comes to predicting
the nature and location of our
next military engagements,
since Vietnam, our record A
has been perfect," said Gates.
"We have never once gotten
it right, from the Mayaguez
to Grenada, Panama, Somalia,
the Balkans, Haiti, Kuwait,
Iraq, and more --we had no
idea a year before any of these
missions that we would be so
engaged."
He added: "Any future
defense secretary who advises
the president to again send a big
American land army into Asia
or into the Middle East or Africa
should 'have his head exam-
ined,' as General MacArthur so
delicately put it"
Bob Gates is a rare bipar-
tisan man who mastered and
bested a partisan town.

Lessons to teach diabetics

how to manage the illness


By LEANNE TYO
1~yo@lakecityreporter.com

Patients suffering from
type 2 diabetes have the
opportunity to learn how to
manage their illness along-
side others who fight the,
same battle.
Beginning Thursday,
the University of Florida
ColumbiaCounty Extension
Office will offer weekly
education lessons taught
by health professionals on
a number of issues type 2
diabetes patients face.
'The sessions will cover a
wide variety of topics relat-
ed to diabetes such as foot
care, cardiovascular dis-
ease, carbohydrate count-
ing, as well as setting goals,
exercise, nutrition, things
of that nature," said Jenny
Jump, 4-H and Family and
Consumer Science agent
The program is open to


people who have been diag-
nosed with type 2 diabetes,
are borderline diabetic and
are at least 21 years old.
Participants will be
equipped with resources
on how to understand their
diagnosis, what kinds of
lifestyle changes they need
to make and how they can
take control of their dis-
ease, Jump said.
"What this class does is
it gives them the different'
tools of different things they
need to look at," she said.
Those who attend the
classes will have the sup-
port of other participants
dealing with diabetes, Jump
said, which has motivated
past attendees to set goals
and make changes to meet
those goals.
"It provides them with
a network of people and
it provides them with
accountability," she said.


The program's cost is
$75, which includes the
educational classes, a one-
hour private individual
session with a registered
dietitian, class materials,
sample recipes and health
assessments.
Classes will be held from
5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. every
Thursday through April 28
at the UF Columbia County
Extension Office, 164 SW
Mary Ethel Lane.
Call (386) 752-5384 to
register.
Jump said the office
offers the program to edu-
cate and assist diabetics.
because diabetes and its
complications are in the top
10 percent of reasons for
death.'
"You can't turn back the
hands of time," she said,
"but what you can do is
prevent it (diabetes) from
getting worse."

Tigers rally from five


down to beat Bulldogs


By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High found
itself in a hole early, but the
Tigers clawed back to an 8-6
win against rival Suwannee
High at'home on:Tuesday.
The Bulldogs jumped out
on pitcher Kellan Bailey in
the first inning with five
runs. Two runs came off
errors.
Matt Pennington started
the Bulldogs off with a dou-
ble to score Stuart Brown
from first, and Pennington
would come in off an error
two batters later.
Trey Owens' fielder's
choice gave the Bulldogs
a 3-0 lead. Owens and Ryan
DaSilva scored off of Monte
Gafas hit to extend the lead
to 5-0.
The Tigers began chip-
ping away at the deficit with
one ,run in the bottom half
of the first. Zach Espenship
reached on a walk and J.T
Gilliam doubled to bring
him in.


Columbia's biggest rally
came in the third inning.
After Bailey doubled to
start the inning, Michael
Kirkman's hit brought in
Travis Brinkley, who pinch
ran for the pitcher. Kirkman
was delivered home- by
Espenship, who had a base
hit to cut the lead to 5-3.
The Tigers' final run of the
inning was produced by two
Espenship steals followed-
by a hit from Gilliam, and
the Bulldogs led by one.
Columbia took the 6-5
lead in the bottom of the
fourth inning as Michael
Craft hit a shot into center
field for a single to score
Jason Plynn and Kirkman.
Suwannee didn't go aiway,
however, as the Bulldogs
scored one in the top of the
fifth when Jackson Brown's
hit brought in Blake Swann
to tie the game, 6-6.
Heading into the bot-
tom half of the sixth
inning, Columbia deliv-
ered to put .the pressure
on the Bulldogs. With two


outs, Gilliam caught the
Suwannee defense trying
to pick off Craft at first and
successfully stole home to
give Columbia a 7-6 edge.
The Tigers added a bit of
insurance when an' error at
first allowed Craft-to score
and Columbia led 8-6 head-
ing into the final inning.
With the game on the
line, Columbia coach J.T
Clark stuck with his gun
and Bailey delivered.
'That's the most that he's
competed since he's wore
a Tiger uniform," Clark
said of his pitching perfor-
mance. We've got to play a
better first inning, because
it's cost us the last three
games. Tonight, we were
able to chip away a little
and had one big inning.
Suwannee's a good club
and they played well."
Columbia defeated
Madison, 12-2, in five
innings on Monday behind
a grand slam from Bailey
and walk-off homer from
Kirkman.

Ohio St suspends Tressel


two games for violation


By RUSTY MILLER
Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio
- Ohio State suspended
football coach Jim Tressel
for two games and fined
him $250,000 on Tuesday
for violating NCAA rules
by failing to notify the
school about information
he received involving two
players and questionable
activities involving the sale
of memorabilia.
Tressel also will receive a
public reprimand and must
make a public apology. The
NCAA is investigating and
could reject the self-imposed
penalties and impose addi-
tional sanctions.
Ohio State athletic direc-
tor Gene Smith said he
never seriously considered


firing Tressel for violating
his contract, which speci-
fies that he must imme-
diately report any the
word is underlined in the
contract' information
which pertains to violations
of NCAA, Big Ten or Ohio
State bylaws and rules.
"Wherever we end up,
Jim Tressel is our football
coach," Smith said. "He is
our coach, and we trust him
implicitly."
Last December, the
NCAA suspended quarter-
back Terrelle 'Pryor and
four teammates for the
first five games on the 2011
season for selling jerseys,
championship rings and
trophies to a local tattoo
parlor owner. The suspen-
sions came just 16 days
after the U.S. attorney


told the school of a federal
investigation that included
players.
The school did not learn
until January, however, that
Tressel had been tipped off
to the federal investigation
back in April.
"Obviously I'm disap-
pointed that this happened
at all," Tressel said. "I take
my responsibility for what
we do at Ohio State tremen-
dously seriously and for the
game of football. I plan to
grow from this. I'm sincere-
ly saddened by the fact that
I let some people down and
didn't do things as well as I
possibly could have."
Yahoo! Sports first
reported Tressel's prior
knowledge of the possi-
ble improper benefits on
Monday.

NFL, union resume labor


talks at mediator's office


By HOWARD FENDRICH

WASHINGTON -
Working to figure out how
to divide about $9 billion
in annual revenues, NFL
Commissioner Roger
Goodell, union executive
director DeMaurice Smith
and their negotiating teams
were at a federal mediator's
office Tuesday for a 13th
day of labor talks.
New York Giants owner
John Mara and Washington
Redskins general manager
Bruce Allen were among
those accompanying
Goodell.
The NFL Players
Association group includ-
ed union president Kevin
Mawae and several current
or former players, including
Cardinals kicker Jay Feely,
Colts center Jeff Saturday,
Chiefs linebacker Mike
Vrabel and Ravens corner-
back Domonique Foxworth.
Mawae flew in from
Nashville on Tuesday morn-
ing; he was one of seven of
the NFLPAs 11 executive
committee members attend-

Conciliation Service.

wasn't present Monday,
when talks resumed after a
break over the weekend.
The current collective
bargaining agreement orig-
inally was set to expire last
week, but two extensions
have now pushed the.cutoff
to the end of Friday.
What will happen the rest
of this week is still anyone's
guess. If a deal isn't reached,
the sides could agree to
yet another extension and
negotiate beyond Friday. Or
talks could, break off, lead-
ing to, possibly, a lockout by
owners or antitrust lawsuits
by players.
The NFL has not lost
games to a work stoppage
in nearly a quarter-century.
By agreeing to continue
with mediation, the league
and union made it clear
neither was quite ready
to make the drastic move
of shutting down a sport
that is more popular than
ever. The past two Super
Bowls rank No. 1 and N0o.
2 among most-watched TV
programs in U.S. history.
The old CBA was agreed

exercised an opt-out clause

rent stalemate.

is at the center of it all.

league completely open its

The person spoke on
condition of anonymity
because mediator George

about the substance of the
talks.
The key issues have
been:
How to split revenues,
including what cut team

about $1 billion off the top.

McIlroy opinions spun


into criticism of Tiger


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

DORAL Rory McIlroy
has said nothing wrong.
One of the brightest
young stars in golf, McIlroy
'has been making news
over the last. few weeks
for giving his opinion on
Tiger Woods, and there
really isn't much good to
say about the game of the
No. 5 player in the world.
Yet the perception is that
McIlroy is taking one too
many jabs at Woods, and
that he is soon to join the
list of players whose criti-
cism comes back to haunt
them.
But that assumes it was
criticism in the first place.
In an essay under
McIlroy's byline in Sports
Illustrated's "Golf Plus"
section, McIlroy said that
Woods is not playing as well
as he did a couple of years
ago, let alone a decade ago
when no one was close to
him in the game.
"I'm not sure we are-
going to see him domi-
nate again-the way he did,"
McIlroy said in the essay.
"He never seemed like he
would make a mistake. It's
not that he's playing badly.
He's simply playing badly
by Tiger's standards. He's
playing like an ordinary
golfer. People expect more
of him because of what he
has achieved."
Indeed, there are ques-
tions as to whether Woods
can rule golf the way he
did in 2000, when his
nine wins included three
straight majors. Or the way
he did after his father died
in 2006, when he won 18 of
33 tournaments worldwide,
four of eight majors and
had a seven-month stretch
without ever losing.
Can anything else be
disputed?
Thel,,problem, is that
Woods, through a dozen
years of unprecedented
dominance, has created a
culture of being off limits to
other players giving honest
answers.
And remember, answers
usually are the product of a
question.
This only looks bad on
two counts: One is that
it's easy to- pile on Woods
right now, even though he
has only himself to blame.
The other is that the com-
mentary is coming from a
21-year-old with all of two
career victories, who has
never faced Woods at his
best.
"That's the answer a
21-year-old would give, isn't
it?" Lee Westwood said last
week with a smile. "I think
having played with Tiger
since 1997 or something
like that ... there's an old
saying that class is perma-


Rory Mcllroy taps in a putt on the first hole during the third
round of the Honda Classic golf tournament on Saturday in
Palm Beach Gardens.


nent and form is fickle. He's
the classiest player I've ever
played with and I'd be wise
enough to know not to write
him off.
"I've seen him play poor-
ly and win tournaments,"
Westwood said. "He doesn't
necessarily have to get back
to where he was."
And then he whimsically
added, "I'll have a word with
Rory later."
Last year, McIlroy talk-
ed about Woods before
the Ryder Cup, when the
American had yet to be
added to the U.S. team as
a captain's pick. In an inter-
view with an Irish newspa-
per, he said. he expected
Woods to be in Wales.
"I would love to face
him," Mcllroy said; "Unless
his game,'rapidly improves
... I think anyone in the
European team would fancy
their chances against him."
The interview took place
a week after Woods finished
next-to-last at Firestone,


where he had won seven
times and never finished
out of the top 10. Woods
had his worst 72-hole score
as a professional that week.
He didn't look capable of
beating anyone.
A month later, there were
rumors swirling around
Cog Hill that Woods had
told McIlroy, "Be careful
what you wish for." Woods
denied that, although he
was aware of the comments.
And while he mentioned
McIlroy in context with
Stephen Ames, Woods also
gave the kid a break. "At
least Rory said, 'Unless my
game improves,"' Woods
said, a concession to fact.
The reference to Ames
came from the 2006
Match Play Championship,
when Ames was the No.
64 seed and jokingly said
on the practice range
about his chances,
"Anything can happen -
especially where he's hit-
ting the ball."


Knights look to rebound

ORLANDO Three
months ago, Central
Florida's basketball pro-
gram was living a dream.
The Knights were off to
a school-record 14-0 start
as a member of Division I
and were soaking up the
national buzz that came
along with their first-ever
national ranking.
But it all nearly unrav-
eled when an eight-game
losing streak in January
and February followed.
Now, the Knights win-
ners of five of their last
seven games open
today's Conference USA
tournament in El Paso,
Texas just hoping to recap-
ture some of their early sea-
.son magic.
UCF (19-10, 6-10 C-USA)
is the No. 9 seed and opens
the tournament against No.


8 East Carolina (16-14, 8-8),
who it's lost to twice this
season. The winner gets top
seed UAB on Thursday.
"We got hit in the head a
little bit for a while, but we're
still here with a chance to
do something," said sopho-
more Marcus Jordan, sec-
ond-born son of NBA legend
Michael Jordan, who leads
the Knights in scoring aver-
aging 15.9 points per game.
After a modest freshman
season, Jordan's namesake
showed fast improvement
on the court this season
to easily become the face
of the Knights' start. They
reached as high as No. 19 in
the Associated Press Top 25.
The run included a win
over in-state rival Florida
- currently ranked No. 12
- and an increase in home
attendance numbers, going
from an average of 5,411
in 2009-10 to 6,714 this
season.


But the start of confer-
ence play brought injuries
to starting junior point
guard A.J. Rompza and
sophomore forward Dave
Diakite. Rompza has been
bothered since the midsea-
son by stress fractures in
both feet and Diakite's sea-
son ended Jan. 31 when he
had knee surgery.
Those gaps in the lineup
quickly produced sagging
play, as the team went from
averaging 76.2 points dur-
ing its 14-game win streak
to just 63.1 in its eight con-
secutive losses.
"We played good basket-
ball throughout the year,
especially early," Knights
coach Donnie Jones said.
"We're much better than
where we were the begin-
ning of the year, which is
where you want to be at the
end of the year. I think our
guys' confidence has gotten
better. They know we can


compete and play."
Rompza missed a pair of
games because of his inju-
ries and still hasn't been
able to return to the start-
ing lineup. That hasn't pre-
vented him from making his
presence felt, though.. UCF
recently knocked off UTEP
and Southern Mississippi
- both leading the league
at the time in back-to-
back games.
During the Knights' last
seven games, teams are
averaging just 61.5 points
per game against them.
Rompzawas instrumental
in both victories and hit the
game-winner in the closing
seconds against Southern
Miss. Jordan and sopho-
more Keith Clanton (aver-
aging 13.9 points' and 8.2
rebounds per game) also
have remained solid and
were named to the C-USA
second- and third-teams
respectively.

FRANK & ERNEST


DEAR ABBY


Neighbor is taken aback by

block party proposition


DEAR ABBY: I am a 50-
year-old gay man. On New
Year's Eve, there was a block
party on the street I live on.
My neighbors, 'Tim" and
"Marie," are a good-looking
30-ish couple.
I was watching the fire-
works when Marie sat down
next to me-and said, 'Tim
and I would like to get to
know you better. How about
we drop by for drinks some
night after we put the kids
to bed?" She said this while
stroking my upper thigh
with her hand.
I find the idea of being
intimate with her husband
appealing, but I have never
"been with" a woman and I
don't think I want to be. It
seems to me the.most pru-
dent approach would be to
pass on this opportunity, but
how do I do it without offend-
ing or causing embarrass-
ment for one of my neigh-
bors? CAUGHT IN THE
FIREWORKS, HOUSTON
DEAR CAUGHT: Does
this neighbor know your
sexual orientation? If the an-
swer is no, just thank her and
tell her you're not into three-
somes. Because it has taken
you so long to give her an an-
swer, she probably won't be
surprised that a liaison is not
your cup of tea. However, if
she does know, tell her with
a wink: "Thanks for the offer
- I'm not into threesomes.


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
But you can send Tim over
anytime."
DEAR ABBY: After 30
years of marriage, my hus-
band is more interested in
watching politics on TV than
interacting with me. We are,
by mutual consent, no lon-
ger intimate but he totally
ignores me. He will talk to
anyone who looks his way,
but he doesn't talk to me.
His idea of doing some-
thing together is driving
around the countryside for
four hours looking at the
scenery. He'll lie on the
couch and watch TV or read
while I'm a few feet away and
not say more than a dozen
words to me all day.
I can't do this much lon-
ger. What do you suggest?
- NEGLECTED WIFE IN
GREENVILLE, S.C.
DEAR NEGLECTED
WIFE: Perhaps you should
spend less time with your
husband. Couples who
spend a lot of time together
can find conversation diffi-
cult because they have noth-
ing fresh to bring to it.


Do some things with fe-
male friends so you won't
feel so shut in and isolated.
This way you will have more
experiences you can discuss.
Also schedule some diver-
sions you can enjoy together
that don't, involve conversa-
tion. How about a movie or
a play, or a volunteer activity
you can both be involved in?
If this doesn't help, then con-
sider counseling.
DEAR ABBY: I don't un-
derstand why people need
others to take sides in an ar-
gument. If someone is upset
and wants to cut someone
out of his/her life, why does
that person expect family
and friends to do the same -
even if the disagreement had
nothing to do with them?
Some of them lie to force
the issue. I just don't under-
stand especiallybecause
we're talking about adults.
- PUZZLED IN COON
RAPIDS, MINN.
DEAR PUZZLED: They
do it to punish (and isolate)
the person they're mad at.
However, if you make plain
to the manipulator because
that's what the person is -
that you will not be dragged
into the middle of something
that's not your business,
you'll be better off.

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Don't lose your
temper when what is re-
quired is love, not criticism
and name-calling. Refine.
your approach when deal-
ing with people who don't
see things the same way
you do. Play fair. ***
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): What you offer
others will be appreciated
and the favor returned.
Getting involved in an ac-
tivity or with an energetic
group will help you look
and feel your best. If there
is something bothering you
at work, talk to your supe-
rior. ***
GEMINI (May21-June
20): You can sway some of
the people you deal with
but not everyone will buy
into your charm. Prepare to
answer some tough ques-
tions. Be straightforward.
Do not give the impression
you are hiding something.

CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Don't stop until
you have exhausted all pos-
sibilities. What you do to-
day can make a difference
to the way the rest of your
year will unfold. Being pro-
gressive and even a little
bit pushy will pay off when
it comes to advancement.

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): The best part of the


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

day will be socializing with
colleagues or friends. Try-
ing to spice, things up will
entice someone you want
to impress. Don't reveal
how you feel just yet Keep
someone guessing if you
want to get a successful re-
sponse. **
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Take action now and
you will learn a lot from
what you experience. A
change in attitude regard-
ing money matters will help
you clear up a misconcep-
tion someone has about
you. Play to win and you
will. **-***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Don't get caught in
someone else's melodrama.
You may not want to rock
the boat but if it means you
will be blamed for some-
thing you didn't do, you had
better speak up. Take a cor-
dial but firm approach to
any problem you face. Love
is in the stars. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Bury yourself in
what you enjoy working at
the most. Don't be afraid to
take an unusual approach
to life, love and finding hap-
piness. Alterations at home
will make your life more
interesting and allow you
greater freedom. ***


SAGYITARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Not every-
one will like what you are
doing or how you are treat-
ing the people around you.
Complaints can be expect-
ed, especially if you exag-
gerate or push others to do
things your way. You can-
not force anyone to be your
friend or lover. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): You can
make some marked im-
provements to your sur-
roundings both at work and
at home. If you feel more
comfortable, you will do
better and excel further.
Have patience when deal-
ing with children, parents
or your lover. ***-**
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): If something
isn't working stop going
against the grain when
what's required is symme-
try. You can have a lot more
than you realize by offer-
ing help and suggestions

people you care most about
are feeling. **
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Someone
you meet is likely to play
an emotional game with
you. Cut to what's, impor-
tant and intervene if you
must. You must put your
own plans first if you want
to reach your deadline or
goal. ****

Tax Station:


Getting


customers


the return


they deserve


customers can
expect friendly
service each
time they come
to The Tax
Station Inc., said owner
Steve Briscoe.
'We believe in giving
personable service," he
said.
The business specializes
in tax preparation and was
started in 1994 by Briscoe
when refund anticipation
loans became popular.
"I saw a market for it
in Lake City," he said. "It
was somewhat intriguing
to me."
Initially, the business
was operated under
The Money Man Check
Cashing and Pawn.
"At the time I wasn't
sure how susceptible Lake
City would be to it," he
said.
But based on the busi-
ness' success, he broke it
off into its own separate
entity after two years.
"I saw this was a vibrant
service that could gener-


ate revenue year after
year," Briscoe said.
Briscoe and his wife
worked on a suitable name
for the business and tried
to find various ways of
incorporating the word
tax, he said. Tax Station
just came to them.
Customers have the
opportunity to get their
refunds back in a quicker
time frame with elec-
tronic-filed returns at
Tax Station, Briscoe said.
Filing returns electroni-
cally has reduced the time
needed from several days
to the same day in a lot of
cases, Briscoe said.
As with his other busi-
nesses, Tax Station has
a clientele that has been
with Briscoe since the
beginning. It gives him
a sense of pride to have
returning customers each,
year.
"I've made a lot of
friends," he said.
The business sees it's
peak during tax season,
Briscoe said.


ANTONIA ROBINSONILake City Reporter
Personable service, knowledgeable staff and competitive prices are all available at The Tax Station, said Steve Briscoe,
owner.


The business offers a
knowledgeable staff that
stays abreast of the tax
laws and any changes
related to taxes, he said. It
offers competitive pricing
for its customers.
"So many people simply
look for a company they
can trust," he said. "Filing


a tax return is the most
important thing, for a lot of
people."
Tax Station staff realize
each return is extremely
important to its clientele.
"We treat everyone like
their return is the only one
we're working on," Briscoe
said.


The business adver-
tises with the Lake City
Reporter, especially during
the tax season, Briscoe
said. Customers bring
in coupons found in the
Reporter.
"The Lake City Reporter
has been a great avenue to
promote our product," he


said.
Tax Station is open 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-
Friday. The business is
located at 1010 SW Main
Blvd. and the number is
386-758-0959.
"We work to get you

entitled to," Briscoe said.
