moth walked
across U.S.
Highway 41 on "mechani-
cal legs" Tuesday morn-
ing. Creeping about seven
feet at time, the machine
meandered its way across
the highway looking for
more mining territory.
The behemoth was a
Potash Corporation drag-
line standing approximate-
ly 125-feet tall with a boom
reach of about 225 feet The
base weight of the dragline
is estimated at 8 million
pounds.
Tuesday morning
Florida Department of
Transportation crews
closed a portion of U.S.
Highway 41 north of
White Springs so that the
machine could cross the
roadway.
A dirt ramp was con-
structed to facilitate the
move and representatives
from Norfolk Southern
Railroad, Southern Natural
Gas Company, Progress
Energy, DOT and other
agencies were present for
safety and permitting pur-
poses.
Mike Williams, PCS
phosphate White Springs
public affairs manager,
said the dragline is used
by PCS to strip and mine
phosphate ore.
The power source for


the dragline is electricity
and a 7,200 -volt electric
cable runs into the drag-
line'giving it energy. The
electricity is then convert-
ed from AC to DC through
converters.

Budget deal to

include small

corporate tax cut


House, Senate
avoid extending
legislative session.
By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE A
corporate income tax cut
that's part of budget deal
Florida lawmakers reached
Tuesday drew praise from
Gov. Rick Scott, although
it's only a small fraction of
what he wanted.
House and, Senate bud-
get leaders settled their
differences just in time to
avoid extending the annu-
al 60-day legislative ses-
sion beyond its, scheduled
Friday completion.
The agreement includes
$308, million in tax relief,
but most of it is in property
tax.


I Scott had asked for vari-.
ous tax and fee cuts totaling
$1.7 billion. His top priority
was a $458 million cut in
the corporate tax, but the
budget deal calls for only,
a $30 million reduction.
The Republican governor,
though,
dropped
h i s
threat to
veto the
budget if
he didn't
get his
corpo- Scott
rate tax
cut. He
called the smaller reddic7
tion a first step that "sends
a message to business in
all these other states that
we're clearly open for busi-
ness."

honoring heroes.
By TONY BRITT

Some were remembered
with a salute. Other recol-
lections evoked tears or a
smile. But all the Columbia
County peace officers who
died in the line of duty were
fondly recalled at Columbia
County's Eighth Annual
Fallen Heroes Ceremony
Tuesday evening.


Th ne annual rite, which last-
ed less than an hour, was held
at the First Baptist Church
of Lake City Fellowship Hall
with more than 100 people in
attendance, paying homage
to peace officers who paid
the ultimate price to protect
the public.
Twelve officers from
Columbia County have died
in the line of duty from Nov.
28, 1900 April 27, 2004,
and during the ceremony a
rose was laid at a memorial
table as a symbol of honor
and respect for each of the
local fallen lawmen.


Th ne ceremony also served
as an opportunity for resi-
dents to recognize the
contributions current law
enforcement officers and
first responders make to the
community.
"So many people in the
community don'treally under-
stand the sacrifices that go
into public safety," said Jody
DuPree, Columbia County
Board of Commissioners
chairman, as he read a proc-
lamation declaring May, 2011
as Public Safety Appreciation
Month in Columbia County.
DuPree's remarks were


followed oy comments irom
-guest speaker David Fina,
Third Judicial Circuit 'chief
judge, who spoke about his
friendship with a former
Florida Highway Patrol
trooper.
Fina said he considered it
as a special privilege to have
the opportunity to speak at
Tuesday's ceremony.
"We're here to honor them,
not how they died, but how
they lived," he said. 'Today
we are reminded of the ulti-
mate sacrifice these young

CBS names Couric s replacement


NEW YORK


Scott Pelley, named on
Tuesday to replace Katie
Couric as "CBS Evening
News" anchor, promised
to bring his "60 Minutes"
sensibility to his new job when he
starts June 6.
CBS hasn't set an exit date for
Couric, who is expected to start a
daytime talk show at either ABC or
CBS. Her contract expires June 4.
Pelley, who has been at CBS since
1989, said he instantly agreed when
asked to fill the
anchor seat that t
had been occupied
by Walter Cronkite,
Dan Rather and
Bob Schieffer
before Couric took
over five years ago
this fall. CBS has Pelley
rarely been out of
last place in the
news ratings the past decade.
'The opportunity to lead the
organization as managing editor
of the evening news is something
you aspire to, something you never
believe you could actually achieve,"
Pelley said in an interview Tuesday.
Pelley, 53, has been at "60
Minutes" since 2004, and he's won
14 Emmys and two Peabody awards.
He joked that he had expected to
stay at the job "all the way up to the
mandatory retirement age of 95."

swept spot off northwest Wales
where Prince William works as a
search-and-rescue helicopter pilot at
the Royal Air Force Valley base.
A palace spokesman said the cou--
ple had decided to stay "weeks ago."
So instead of suntan lotion and
lazy dips in an azure-blue sea, it's
back to work just days after the
couple's picture-perfect wedding
captivated much of the world. Kate
Middleton, now the duchess of
Cambridge, does their shopping
while William trains and works on
the base.


The choice may offer the emotion-
ally exhausted couple something
even more valuable than a hectic,
.security-protected jaunt: Privacy.
The couple rent a whitewashed
farmhouse close to a private beach,
and away from snooping camera
lenses.
"They don't get bothered at all
here," said Daisy Gibson, a 19-year-
old university student.

Comedian arrested at
California restaurant
TEMECULA, Calif. Comedian
Andy Dick has been arrested in
Southern California for being drunk
and disorderly in a restaurant.
The Rivepside County Sheriff's
Department said the 45-year-old
comic actor was arrested Monday
night at Marie Callender's after
reports that he was causing a distur-
bance in the bar.
A sheriff's statement said Dick
appeared to be
drunk and was
unable to care for
his own safety. He
was booked for pub-
lic intoxication and
released.
Messages left
Tuesday for his Dick
attorney weren't
immediately
returned.
Dick has a history of arrests. In
2008, he pleaded guilty and received
probation after being found drunk
outside a Riverside County restau-
rant. Last year, he was charged with
sexual abuse after allegations that he
groped a bouncer and a patron at a
West Virginia bar.

Museum seeks
items from raid
FORT PIERCE -
Officials at the National
Navy UDT-SEAL Museum
ii Fort Pierce are seek-
ing a few items from the
raid that killed Osama bin
Laden.
Michael R. Howard, the
museum's executive direc-
tQr, said Monday he would
like to include uniforms,
weapons and photos in
an exhibit honoring the
SEALS who took part in
the bin Laden raid.
The museum is in the
midst of an expansion that
should be completed this
summer.
, Howard, a former Navy
SEAL, said the museum's
phone has been "ringing
off the hook" since news
broke of the elite unit's
involvement in the raid on
bin Laden's compound in
Pakistan.
He said he was proud
"that our guys were the.
ones to serve justice."

Employee accused
of stealing tickets
ORLANDO An
Orlando theme park
employee has been
released from jail after offi-
cials said she unlawfully
distributed $1 million in
park tickets.
Authorities said 43-
year-old Carmen Kunstorf
spent the weekend in
custody, charged with
distributing Universal
Studios tickets to park
employees.
Kunstorf's job duties
included handing out
complimentary tickets to
employees. Park officials
said she is accused of
handing out extra tickets
to employees who previ-
ously loaned her money.
An internal audit from
January 2007 to January
2011 showed she passed
out $1 million in compli-
mentary tickets.

MARINE: Killed in Afghanistan

Continued From Page 1A


Corps."
Freeman and his wife,
Katie, married after he
graduated from basic
training.
"I loved him as a son
and was proud of him,"
Clement said. "He was
a great example to my
daughter and his chil-
dren."
Faith was important to
Freeman.
"Doug was a Godly
man," Clement said. "He
believed in the Lord Jesus
Christ He was raised in
those values."
He was also a lover
of catfish, he said.
Freeman had the oppor-
tunity to go catfishing
with several friends


before being deployed
to Afghanistan.
Freeman was a machin-
ist by trade and worked
for AVP, a company in
Plant City, Clement said.
He was going to return
there after serving in
Afghanistan and make
his home in Plant City.
Unfortunately,
Freeman never got to
see his son, but he was'
able to hear him cry,
Clement said.
His legacy of serv-
ing his country and lov-
ing his family will live
through his children, he
said. His funeral will be
recorded for the children
to see as they get older.
"They have no idea


what's going on at this
time, but one day they
will know," Clement
said.
There is a saying that
"Everyone gave some
and some gave all," he
said. Freeman was one
that gave all.
"He was a wonder-
ful guy," Clement said.
"I could say that's my
boy. I was proud of him
and the way he loved
my daughter. Nothing
touches a father more
than the way a man
loves his daughter. He
was very, very clear on
how he loved her and
the grandchildren he
gave me. He loved his
family." ,


Woman injured in jet ski accident


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

A Gainesville woman, seri-
ously injured in a boating
accident on the Suwannee
River Sunday when she was
struck by a jet ski, is recover-
ing in a Gainesville hospital,
officials said.
Nobbie Cannon, 20, suf-
fered internal injuries when
the tube she was riding was
struck by a personal water-
craft. Officials did not release
the report of the accident
until Tuesday.
"She remains in the hos-
pital and according to her
father, a full recovery is
expected," said Karen Parker,
Florida Fish and 'Wildlife
Conservation Commission
public information coordina-
tor, who noted Cannon suf-


fered a lacerated spleen in
the boating mishap.
According to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) inves-
tigators, Cannon was being
towed on an 11-foot Yamaha
personal watercraft oper-
ated by Allison Reddick, 21,
of Archer. Kathleen Weir, 21,
of Gainesville and Simone
Chriss, 21, of Archer, were
also passengers on the ves-
sel as the group was traveling
south on the river.
Therman Corbin, 46, of Old
Town was driving a 10-foot
Yamaha personal watercraft
in the opposite direction. He
reportedly turned around
after passing Reddick's ves-
sel and wasn't aware that
Cannon was being towed.
Corbin then collided with
Cannon; FWC officials said.


After the collision, Cannon
was taken to the Turner Boat
Ramp in Dixie County and
immediately transported to
the hospital. Reports did not
indicate how she was taken
to the hospital, but Parker
said Cannon was the only
person injured in the crash.
Parker said the FWC will
continue its investigation into
the cause of the incident.
"Normally an investigation
for a boating accident takes
about two' weeks," she said.
."They (FWC investigators)
don't believe it's any kind of
alcohol-related thing. They
are basically looking for what
happened and if anyone was
at fault"

dent is asked to call 888-404-

SLAIN: Officials deciding on photos

Continued From Page 1A


Laden had been shot, they
doubled back to move the
prisoners away from the
compound before blowing
up the downed helicopter.
The fuller picture of
the high-stakes assault
emerged as U.S. officials
weighed whether to release
secret video and photos of
bin Laden, killed with a
precise shot above his left
eye.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein,
who chairs the Senate
Select Committee on
Intelligence and revealed
some of the new details
about the raid, said she'd
known about the suspected
bin Laden compound since
last December offering
rare proof that Washington
can indeed keep a block-
buster secret
President Barack Obama
made plans to go to ground
zero in New York on
- Thursday to mark the mile-
stone of bin Laden's demise
and to remember the dead
of 9/11.
White House counter-
terrorism adviser John
Brennan said the U.S.
already was scouring items
seized in the raid said to
include hard drives, DVD's,
a pile of documents and
more that might tip U.S,
intelligence to al-Qaida's
operational details and per-
haps lead the manhunt to
the presumed next-in-com-
mand, Ayman al-Zawahri.
As for publicly releasing
photos and video, Brennan
said in a series of appear-
ances on morning televi-
sion: "This needs to be
done thoughtfully," with
careful consideration given
to what kind of reaction the
images might provoke.
At issue were photos
of bin Laden's corpse and
video of his swift burial at
sea. Officials were reluc-
tant to inflame Islamic sen-
timent by showing graphic
images of the body. But
they were also eager to
address the mythology
already building in Pakistan
and beyond that bin Laden
was somehow still alive.
In a move that could
increase pressure for
the release of photos,
Afghan Taliban spokes-
man Zabihullah said talk
of bin Laden's death was
"premature," adding that
the U.S. had not presented
"convincing evidence," the
SITE Intelligence Group
reported.
Obama, who approved
the extraordinarily risky
operation and witnessed
its progression from the
White House Situation
Room, his face heavy with
tension, reaped accolades
from world leaders he'd
kept in the dark as well as
from political opponents at
home. Pakistan, however,
called the raid "unauthor-
ized" Tuesday and said it
hoped it wouldn't serve
as a precedent for future
actions.
CIA Director Leon
Panetta, in interviews with
Time and PBS' "Newshour,"
sketched the scene in the
Situation Room as the
tense final minutes of the
raid played out.


"Once those teams went
into the compound," he
told PBS, "I can tell you
there was a time period of
almost 20 or 25 minutes
that we really didn't know
just exactly what was going
on."
Then, Panetta told
Time, when Adm. William
McRaven, head of the Joint
Special Forces Command,
reported that the com-
mandos had identified
"Geronimo" the code
name for bin Laden "all
the air we were holding
came out."
And when the helicop-
ters left the compound
15 minutes later, Panetta
said, the room broke into
applause.
Republican and
Democratic leaders at
home gave Obama a stand-
ing ovation at an evening
White House meeting that
was planned before the
assault but became a cel-
ebration of it, and an occa-
sion to step away from the
fractious political climate.
The episode was an
embarrassment, at best,
for Pakistani authorities as
bin Laden's presence was
revealed in their midst.


DoI't forget,
Mother

The stealth U.S. operation
played out in a city with
a strong Pakistani mili-
tary presence and without
notice from Washington.
Questions persisted in
the administration and
grew in Congress about
whether some elements of
Pakistan's security appa-
ratus might have been in
collusion with al-Qaida in
letting bin Laden hide in
Abbottabad.
Brennan asked the ques-
tion that was reverberating
around the world: "How
did Osama bin Laden stay
at that compound for six
years or so and be unde-
tected?"
"We have many, many
questions about this,"
he said. "And I know
Pakistani officials do
as well." Brennan said
Pakistani officials were
trying to determine
"whether there were
individuals within the
Pakistani government or
military intelligence ser-
vices who were knowl-
edgeable." He questioned
in particular why bin
Laden's compound hadn't
come to the attention of
local authorities.

AN I-


AN
OPINION


Florida's

shameful

failure
they're locked
down in violation
of the law. Tied
with ropes. Given
tranquilizers
without a doctor's order. It
has happened to Florida's
most vulnerable, the elderly
or mentally ill, at least 1,732
times since 2002 in homes
licensed by the state. Most of
those homes have been slapped
with a relatively small fine and
nothing more.
Society's most important
obligation is to protect the
most vulnerable among us
the elderly, infirm and
children. Reasonable people
may disagree on how best to
meet that duty, but Floridians
resoundingly look to their
government for a minimum of
protection.
Yet our state government is
failing miserably on that front
failing to protect our poorest
of seniors and the mentally ill
from abuse and neglect. And it
was failing long before Florida
faced an economic tumble.
Worse yet, these are folks living
in homes that taxpayers finance
through Medicaid, the federal-
state partnership that puts
Florida in charge of caring for
the poorest sick residents.
As detailed in Neglected to
Death, The Miami Herald's
yearlong investigation, Florida's
assisted-living law once
hailed as the most progressive
in the nation is often ignored
by the state agency charged -.;
with policing abuses. Year
after year, the Agency"for "
Health Care Administration
gives violators in state-licensed
homes pass after pass to keep
operating, often after hundreds
of violations have been racked
up and even after the weak and
defenseless die from abuse or
neglect
- Florida toughened penalties
for abuse of elderly and
disabled, people in 2008, but
what's the point if the state's lax
oversight of problematic homes
continues? Seventy people have
died from abuse or neglect
at state-licensed homes since
2002. Yet Florida has closed
only one-tenth of the 70 worst
homes cited the past two years.

CARC must find ways


to work together


April was a rough and
tumble month for
CARC. It began with
an immediate and
sharp reduction in
the rates that the state agrees
to pay CARC for services.
While we are grateful that the
rates were restored for now,
we recognize through this
experience that the state is not
able to properly or consistently
support services for people with
disabilities.
To continue to be a
community that offers the same\
quality of life to its citizens with
disabilities as it does to those
without a disability, we must
find ways to work together.
In the CARC Group Home,
we'have a number of residents
who struggle to open the door
to their own home. In terms
of performing simple daily
tasks which signify major
personal growth for citizens
with disabilities, such as
taking out the trash, this is an
insurmountable barrier.
The Suwannee Valley
Community Foundation
has presented a potential
opportunity, offering to pay
half the cost of installing an
electronic door. We hope that
members of. the community will
team up with Suwannee Valley

On Friday, May 13th, the

TO THE EDITOR


to management has produced
no improvement The servers
will make comments indicating
there are not enough servers
and they ask for patience. This
seems to be an ongoing man-
agement issue of not staffing
the restaurant appropriately.
The purpose of our letter is to
inform the public that our writ-
ten complaint sent to Kabor's
-Corporate headquarters was
largely ignored. They stated
the restaurant was a franchise
and they had no authority over
the owner. They gave the com-
plaint to the owner, who has not
responded in 16 days.
In this economy, most res-
taurants are struggling and
good service is key to survival.
We hope this spares any other
group planning a function at
Kazbors from the same experi-
ence we had.

Sainthood

calls for

second

thought


Pope John Paul II was
beatified by Pope
Benedict XVI on
Sunday in a Vatican
ceremony witnessed
by thousands of the faithful.
At John Paul's funeral in 2005
adoring crowds demanded
immediate sanctification for
the beloved pope. The new
pope, Benedict, complied,
waiving the ordinary require-
ment of a five-year waiting
period. Now John Paul has
reached the penultimate step
in his speedy .passage to
sainthood.
Not so fast, says Maureen
Dowd in a recent New York
Times column. In spite of John
Paul's devout qualities and
sometimes heroic actions, she
asks, how can you canonize
a man who presided over a
priesthood involved in a long-
running, rampant sexual abuse
scandal that brought discredit
upon the Catholic Church and,
worse, destroyed many lives?
Good question.
If John Paul wasn't complicit
in the scandal, he was at least
complacent, looking the other
way and declining to inves-
tigate credible accusations
against high-ranking priests
and bishops. A company man
to his core, John Paul chose
to protect the church and the
clergy rather than to protect
innocent children. So Dowd
argues.
Apologists for John Paul say
that sainthood is not about
being perfect but about the
whole of a devout person' life.
Fair enough, but what about
the danger of setting the bar
for sainthood much too low?
Clearly these frocked pedo-
philes were scoundrels of the
first order, not only deeply dis-
turbed but often arrogant, cal-
lous, and self-righteous. They
hurt people, usually children,
badly. The failure to identify,
investigate, and stringently
sanction the abusers was and
still is a colossal failure of
leadership so great, Dowd con-.
terids, that John Paul should
not be designated a saint.
John Paul's fans would be
disappointed. But the push for
quick canonization is evidently
more than an effort to satisfy
the demands ("Santo Subito!")
of an emotional crowd fol-
lowing the death of a popular
pope. Daniel J. Wakin, writing
for the New York Times short-
ly after John Paul's funeral,
reports that a petition calling
for fast-track canonization for
John Paul had already been
circulated among the cardinals
convened to elect a new pope.
Some church historians were'
suggesting that the emphasis
on rapid canonization was an
effort by the cardinals to "wrap
themselves in the mantle of
John Paul."
But Hans Kung, a noted
Swiss theologian, had a more
political interpretation, arguing
that the campaign for rapid
sainthood was "inspired and
engineered" by the Vatican in
order to pressure the cardinals
into electing a new pope who
would readily fall in line with
John Paul's conservative
policies.
In other words, if this is
true, politics, not just passion,
was at work in the push to
start the canonization process
immediately.

FALLEN: Officers recognized

men and women made to
make us safe. We honor
and show gratitude to them
and their families."
Florida Department
of Transportation Motor
Carrier Compliance Capt.
Vicki Thomas, the mas-
ter of ceremony, said she
thought the ceremony was


excellent and labeled it a
success.
"I especially liked where
each agency came forth and
laid a rose on the memorial
table to represent the fallen
officer from their agency,"
she said. "It's important that
we hold this event annually
because everyday in this


country, men and women
give their lives to protect
the citizens. It just means
so much to the families of
these men and women in
law enforcement and to the
other men and women who
work with them day to day,
to continue to honor these
fallen officers."


BUDGET: Deal struck before deadline

Continued From Page 1A


Scott wants eventually to
repeal the corporate tax,
which raises nearly $2 bil-
lion a year, as part of his
agenda to create jobs by
making Florida, where
more than 1 million work-
ers are unemployed, friend-
lier to business.
"My plan was to phase it
out over seven years," Scott
said. 'We're still going to
get there."
Scott proposed a first-
year reduction in the cor-
porate tax from 5.5 percent
to 4.5 percent. The legis-
lative agreement makes
no change in the rate but
increases a $5,000 exemp-
tion to $25,000. That would
mostly benefit smaller busi-
nesses and totally exempt
about half of the 30,000 cor-
porations that pay the tax.
That approach is a com-
promise that accommo-
dates the governor at a
much lower cost in a tight
budget year, said House
Speaker Dean Cannon, R-
Winter Park
"Simply lowering the rate
is politically challenging
in an environment where
you're having to make cuts


in health care and educa-
tion," Cannon said.
'"There is a political ben-
efit to both the messaging
and, frankly, there's the.
economic policy of: smaller
businesses are more likely
to be agile enough to hire
people quickly," he added.
Besides the higher
exemption, the budget
agreement includes tar-
geted business tax credits
of $9 million for research
and development, $10 mil-
lion for space projects and
$3 million for contraminat-
ed site development. The
state's film industry tax
credit would be increased
by $12 million.
The biggest chunk of
tax relief would come at
the expense of the state's
five water management dis-
tricts. Their property taxes
would be cut by $210.5 mil-
lion.
The accord also has a
three-day back-to-school
sales tax holiday that would
set the state back $25.6 mil-
lion.
Tuesday was the dead-
line for reaching an agree-
ment due to a constitution-


al 72-hour waiting period
before a vote can be taken
after a compromise budget
bill hits lawmakers' desks.
The budget for the fis-
cal year beginning July
1 is expected to top $67
billion with $2.2 billion in
reserves. It cuts spending
by nearly $4 billion but bud-
get writers still found room
for spending projects in key
lawmakers' districts.
The budget's spending
reductions along with what
will amount to a 3 percent
pay cut for public employ-
ees are the result of state's
revenues failure to keep
pace with cost increases
and a growing demand for
services, led by health care
programs.
The budget deal cuts
Medicaid reimbursement
rates 12 percent for most
hospitals -.4 percent for
children's and rural hospi-
tals and 6.5 percent for
nursing homes.
The Senate, though,
backed off from sharp
reductions in programs for
seriously ill patients includ-
ing transplant recipients
and seniors.


Wildfire smoke may impact area


From staff reports
A wildfire growing in the
Okefenokee Swamp may
impact Columbia County
with its smoke, local for-
estry officials said.
The Honey Prairie
Fire, a wildfire in the
Okefenokee Swamp,
may bring smoke into
the Suwannee Forestry
Center operations area
today and Thursday. The
Honey Prairie Fire is
centered approximately
10.5 miles north of the
Florida/Georgia state
line and 10 miles east of
Fargo, Ga.
The fire is believed to
have been caused by alight-


ning strike on Thursday,
April 28, and is spreading
through extremely dry
scrub-shrub vegetation, a
result of drought condi-
tions. The fire has grown
to approximately 2,100
acres and has a perimeter
of 10.7 miles.
"Prevailing winds from
the southeast have kept
smoke out of our area
since the fire began last
week; however, the winds
are expected to swing
around with a passing
front which will come
through our area," said
Kurt Wisner, Florida
Division of Forestry miti-
gation specialist and pub-


lic information officer,
'"Winds are expected to be
from the northwest and
remain northerly through
at least Thursday. Smoke
could be in our area until
the wind shifts again."
He said the fire's remote
location poses little threat
to communities or struc-
tures, but the 12 to 17 mph
winds which will come
with the passing front
could result in more rapid
movement of the fire.
The Honey Prairie Fire
is being closely monitored
by federal and multi-state
fire agencies as well as
commercial timber own-
ers.


HAUL: Dragline shuts down highway

the PCS fleet date back to
the 1960's," Williams said,
noting some of the drag-
lines were put into service
in the mid-60s to the mid
70's. "All of the draglines
here are fairly old. We
rebuild them on a regular
maintenance program to
keep them operating."
The dragline making its
way across the road has
a 45-yard bucket, where
ifts bucket capacity allows
it to pickup 45 yards of
material, approximately 55
tons.
A group of interested
residents lined the road-
way, some. with cameras,
others with binoculars,
but all interested in see-
ing the machine make
its way across the
road.
Kimberly Howard's


husband, Darrin, is the
dragline driver and she
was one of many people
at roadside with a camera
in her hands to record the
event.
"My husband's driving it
and it's an exciting event,"
she said. "Everybody gets
to see it. This is some-
thing that you don't see
everyday. It's not what you
would go to at an every-
day job and think about
doing."
Howard said she was
surprised to see that some
many other local residents
took an interest in the large'
machinery being moved
across the roadway.
"I brought my camera


just to take pictures for
our scrapbook at home

Elizabeth Hallman
drove from Live Oak to
see the mechanical beast
cross the roadway.
"My husband works
with Windstream
Communications, the
phone company over

they were moving the big
dragline and it's quite an
ordeal," she said. "I think
it's amazing such a big
piece of equipment being
moved and all the preji
aration they have to go

RAILED,


Lady Tigers run
into Niceville
buzzsaw Tuesday.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
In the end, experience
won out as Columbia High
fell to Niceville High, which
has lost to the state cham-
pion each of the last two
.seasons, 13-2, in Lake City
Tuesday.
The Lady Eagles advance
to the Final 4 in 5A, while
the Lady Tigers end the
year 26-4.
"You don't mind losing
to a good team," Columbia
head coach Jimmy Williams
said. "I fully expect them to
win it all. Our season was
great, but every team loses
their last game except one.
We plan on being in the top
10 for a long time to come."
Columbia built a 2-0
edge in the third inning,
beginning with a Stephanie
Pilkington homer to
break the scoreless tie.
Kayli Kvistad was caught
in a rundown later .in the
inning, but a throwing error
to third allowed the fresh-
man to reach home for a
2-0 lead.
Columbia held onto that
lead until the fifth inning
when the wheels fell off and
the Lady Eagles scored six.
After a scoreless sixth
inning, Niceville's bats
got hot again in the top
of the seventh as the Lady
Eagles scored seven more
including a two-run homer
from Kaylan Davis to score
Audrey Diekmann.
Jessa Watts picked up the
win in a complete-game per-
formance. She allowed only
four hits, walked three and
stuck out 12 batters. Only
one run was earned.
Williams didn't want the
Lady Tigers to remember
the way they went down.
"We can't think about
how it ended, only what we
did to get there," he said.


CHS senior will
play basketball at
Alabama school.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Briya McGuire packaged
herself perfectly to continue
her basketball career.
The Columbia High
senior signed a scholar-
ship to play at Lurleen
B. Wallace Community
College in Andalusia, Ala.,
in a ceremony at the CHS
auditorium on Tuesday.
McGuire learned of the
school after an acquaintance
on the Suwannee High team
signed last year. ,
"I e-mailed the coach
(Ricky Knight) and told
them they have a great col-
lege to not only play for,
but to get my education,"


IVfcGuire said. "I asked for a
tryout date and went all the
way to Alabama to try out."
Knight saw enough talent
to offer the scholarship.
"The only thing he could
say was we need to work on
my shot," McGuire said. "I
am OK around the basket,
but I don't have the funda-
mentals of shooting."
Columbia High head
coach Michele Bisaccia was
not surprised by the perse-
verance of the Lady Tigers'
captain.
"We had a difficult sea-
son and Briya learned a lot
of life lessons on how to
be a leader with the chips
down," Bisaccia said. "She
started every game and
showed a lot of emotion.
She always helped give our
team a chance to win. I saw
CHS continued on 3B

Liriano throws first



no-hitter of season


By RICK GANO
Associated Press

CHICAGO Francisco
Liriano pitched the major
league's first no-hitter of the
season, throwing his first
career complete game in the
Minnesota Twins' 1-0 victo-
ry over the Chicago White
Sox on Tuesday night


Liriano (24) walked six
and struck out two, throw-
ing 123 pitches in the 95th
major league start for the
27-year-old left-hander.
He survived a rocky ninth
inning that began when
Brent Morel grounded to
shortstop and Matt Tolbert
made a one-hop throw
that first baseman Justin


Morneau scooped. Juan
Pierre walked and Alexei
Ramirez popped to short-
stop.
Liriano fell behind Adam
Dunn 3-0 in the count, then
got a pair of strikes. After
a foul ball, Dunn lined out
to Tolbert as Liriano and
his Twins teammates cel-
ebrated at the mound.

Derrick Rose becomes



NBA's youngest MVP


By ANDREW SELIGMAN
Associated Press

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill.
- Right from the start,
Derrick Rose wondered
why he couldn't be the
MVP. It turns out, nothing
was stopping him.
Rose officially became
the NBA's youngest MVP
on Tuesday and joined
Michael Jordan as the only
Bulls players to win the
award.
The news was hardly a
surprise after Rose had a
spectacular season in lead-
ing Chicago to the league's
best record
Rose has a ways to go
before he catches Jordan,
who won five MVPs and
led the way to two title
three-peats, but he sure is
off to a good start. In his
third year, the dynamic
point guard led the Bulls to
their best season since the
championship era.
The 22-year-old Rose got
113 first-place votes from
a panel of media voters.
Orlando's Dwight Howard
finished second, Miami's
LeBron James was third,
the Lakers' Kobe Bryant
was fourth and Oklahoma
City star Kevin Durant fin-
ished fifth.
A product of Chicago's
South Side, Rose estab-
lished himself as one of the
top players in the league
after going from Rookie of
the Year to an All-Star in
his first two seasons. He
took another step this year
with one of the best all-
around performances by a
point guard.
He averaged 25 points
and 7.7 assists while leading
Chicago into contention for
its first championship since
the Jordan-Scottie Pippen
era. For all the groaning
over the Bulls missing out
on James, Dwyane Wade

Monday in Chicago.


and Chris Bosh in free
agency, they did quite well
for themselves anyway.
Looking for more after
back-to-back 41-win sea-
sons and first-round play-
off exits, they fired coach
Vinny Del Negro and
replaced him with Tom
Thibodeau. Then, they
landed Carlos Boozer and
supporting players like
Kyle Korver, giving the
Bulls the inside scoring
presence they were lack-
ing and one of the deepest
rotations.
It all added up to this a
62-20record and homecourt
advantage throughout the
playoffs. They advanced'
past the first round for just
the second time since the
championship era, and the
biggest reason for all that,


of course, was Rose.
He showed up to training
camp openly wondering
why he couldn't be MVP.
Then, he backed it up.
He ranked seventh in
scoring and 10th in assists,
making him the only player
this season in the top 10 in
both categories. The only
other Bull to do so was
Jordan in 1988-89, when he
led the league in scoring
(32.5 points) and finished
10th in assists, according
to information provided
to the team by the Elias
Sports Bureau.
Throw in a 4.1 rebound-
ing average, and Rose joins
another elite group. He's
the seventh player in league
history to average at least
25 points, 7.5 assists and
4.0 rebounds, along with


Jordan, Oscar Robertson,
Jerry West, Larry Bird,
Wade and James, accord-
ing to Elias.
In the postseason, he's
been just as impressive.
He scored 39 and 36
points in the first two play-
off games against Indiana.
Then he shook off two sub-
par performances and a
sprained left ankle to score
25 points in Game 5 as the
top-seeded Bulls closed out
what had been a tight first-
round series with a 116-89
victory.
They stumbled in Game
1 of the Eastern Conference
semifinals against Atlanta,
losing 103-95. Rose
scored 24 points, but he
hit just 11 of 27 shots and
did not attempt a free
throw.


For Thibodeau, no

time to celebrate

coaching award


By JIM LITKE
Associated Press

Tom Thibodeau's NBA
coach of the year celebra-
tion was two decades in
the making and nearly over
before it began. It will be
old news by the time the
Chicago Bulls wrap up their
second-round playoff series
against the Atlanta Hawks.
He wouldn't want it any
other way.
Too bad. Lost in all that
haste is a tale that own-
ers and general managers
around the league should
be required to memorize.
It's about a guy who studies
like mad and does every-
thing right, but gets passed
over time and again because.
he ,doesn't have the pedi-
gree or look the part.
Thibodeau played bas-
ketball at Division III Salem


State, and after three years
as an assistantthere, worked
his one and only season
(1984-85) as a head coach
until owner Jerry Reinsdorf
handed him the keys to
the Bulls last summer. In
between were four years
as an assistant at Harvard
and 21 more at a half-dozen
NBA stops, where every
defense Thibodeau touched
got better and someone
else got the credit.
That changed in a few
important ways Sunday,
if only for a short time,
when Thibodeau received
70 first-place votes to finish
well ahead of Philadelphia's
Doug Collins in balloting
for the award.
For once, there was a rea-
son to celebrate how much
loyalty Thibodeau had
inspired' in others; instead
of the other way around.

Boise State accused


of major violation


By TODD DVORAK
Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho The
NCAA has accused Boise
State of committing one
major violation and a series
of -infractions over a five-
year period in its football
program and four other
sports.
An inquiry by NCAA
investigators also conclud-
ed the scope and nature
of the 22 violations show
Boise State lacked the insti-
tutional controls to fully
comply with critical rules in
collegiate athletics, accord-
ing to a report made public
by the school and NCAA on
Monday.
The violations range from
coaches organizing low-
cost summer housing and
transportation for potential
Bronco football players to
tennis and track and field
athletes getting meals and
housing in violation of
NCAA rules.
After being notified by the


NCAA of the potential viola-
.tions, Boise State officials
launched their own inquiry
in 2009 and ultimately self-
reported some previously
unknown infractions. But
before a resolution could
be reached with the NCAA,
Boise State officials discov-
ered more serious prob-
lems in the women's tennis
program last fall.
Investigators allege the
coaches violated rules by
providing money, lodging
and other benefits to a recruit
and allowed her to take part
in practice and NCAA events
before she was officially
enrolled in school.
Former head coach
Mark Tichenor and assis-
tant Tiffany Coll are also
accused of lying about the
violations to university and
NCAA officials and running
afoul of ethics rules. Both
coaches left the program in
November.
Boise State President
Bob Kustra said the vio-
lations are disappointing.


He said the university has
already made fixes, hired
a new executive director
of NCAA compliance and
expanded compliance staff,
according to the universi-
ty's official response to the
NCAA Monday.
"I am confident we have
responded thoroughly to
the NCAA," Kustra said.
"Our internal review was
comprehensive and our
response very detailed.
"I am disappointed that
we face these allegations.
It is unacceptable and the
athletic department staff
understand and agree with
my position," he said.
The NCAA Infractions
Committee has scheduled a
hearing June 10 to consider
the case before issuing a
final report and possible
sanctions.
With the exception of the
problems identified in the
women's tennis program,
the university characterized
the majority of the viola-
tions as minor.

her grow. She was always
working on fundaments
with her eye on that next
level."
McGuire's mom is Traci
Davis-McGuire and her
dad, Ellsworth McGuire, is
deployed with the Marines
in Japan.
"My mother was in the
Army and when she would
get deployed I stayed with
my grandmother, Milbred
Shakespeare," McGuire
said. "I stayed with her until
the ninth grade when my
mom retired. She was a real


big influence on me. If it
wasn't for her, I wouldn't be
here right now."
Bisaccia saw the bond
between McGuire and
Shakespeare.
"Briya is very dedicated
to her family," Bisaccia
said. "She has 100 percent
always been there for her
grandmother and that is
something I respect. 1 am
really proud of her. She is
someone who has done
their job on the court and
.in the classroom."
McGuire told those in


attendance she wanted to
be an example.
"If anybody ever tells
you, 'you can't do it,' look
them in the eye and say you
can," McGuire said.
Other family members
joining McGuire were
grandmother Winnie
Richardson, brother Rashei
Bruce and cousins Makeba
Murphy and Doritae Davis.
"I want to thank my moth-
er, father and brother, and
Mrs. (Elaine) Merrick and
Mrs. (Candace) Christie,"
McGuire said.

Folks, this year's free
smorgasbord of information
contains helpful advice on
such topics as how to avoid
getting sick from restaurant
take-out foods, medications
and products to avoid during
pregnancy, and an enlighten-
ing fact sheet on HPV (human
papillomavirus), a sexually
transmitted disease that, left
untreated, can lead to cervi-
cal cancer. Did you know that
vaccination with Guardasil
prevents four types of this
disease? I didn't. I thought
there were only two kinds of
the virus, the one that causes
cold sores and the "other
one" that affects the nether
regions. And no, you CANT
get HPV from the vaccine.
Because all the informa-
tion in these kits has been
compiled by the government
at taxpayer expense, it's of-
fered at no cost to you. How-

DEAR ABBY: I had ad
affair a few years ago that
lasted a lot longer than it
should have. It ended when
my lover, "John," died unex-
pectedly. The kicker is I was
- and still am married. For
the last two years I had want-
ed to end the relationship,
but I couldn't find the couir-
age to do it on my own.
My question is, should
I feel guilty for feeling glad
that John is dead? I'm glad
the affair is finally over, but I
feel guilty that death is what
ended it and that I didn't have
the courage to end it myself
- CONFLICTED IN SAN-
TA ROSA
DEAR CONFLICTED:
I don't think you're feeling
"glad" as much as you're re-
lieved that John is finally out
of your life even if it was
feet first. As to your guilt
about not ending the affair,
that's something between
you, your religious adviser
and your higher power. You'll
have to work it out with one
of them, and I'm advising you
to start now.

Great food,


service make


Gondolier


memorable


A t Gondolier
Italian
Restaurant and
Pizza, patrons
have a dif-
ficult time deciding which
is better: the food or the
service.
"If you give them good
food and good service, I
believe people will come
back," was the simple for-
mula for success provided
by Tim Pappas, general
manager of the Lake City
location.
Lake City has been
home to the Gondolier res-
taurant since August 2010,
but the chain was origi-
nally founded in Cleveland,
Tenn., in 1974 by Bill
Sioutis.
Florida's only other
Gondolier restaurant
location is in Clearwater
Beach. Upon visiting Lake
City, Sioutis recognized
the need for an Italian res-
taurant in the area, Pappas
said.
Pappas came to man-
age the Lake City res-
taurant after opening
and managing two other
Gondolier locations, one
in Tennessee and one in .
Georgia.
His experience with
Gondolier began in 1992,
when he started work-


ing in the kitchen of the
Cartersville, Ga., location.
Pappas eventually worked
his way up to manage-
ment
While Gondolier has
approximately 300 Italian
items on the menu, its spe-
cialty is pizza.
"We've got Italian
dishes, but the main thing
is the pizza," Pappas said.
"That's how we started."
What sets Gondolier's
pizza apart is its .home-
made touch and fresh,
high-quality ingredients,
Pappas said.
'We make everything
here," he said. 'We start
from the dough. Plus, we
use the best ingredients
you can buy and the best
cheese you can buy."
More than 10 traditional
pizza specials are on the
menu with eight white
pizza specials and cus-
tomers can choose from
other featured Italian or
Greek menu items like
chicken wings, gyros, sal-
ads, subs, fresh seafood
dishes, calzones, strom-
boli and a variety of pasta
dishes, all of which are
* homemade.
"All of our dinners we '
make homemade here," -

combination of lasagna,
