Local wildland fire resources are
being stretched to their limits and
beyond as lightning-sparked wild-
fires continue to crop up throughout
the area.
According to the Suwannee
Forestry Center, there are 33 active
fires in the Suwannee District, which
does not include fires on U.S. Forest
Service property. Kurt Wisner,
Florida Division of Forestry mitiga-
tion specialist and public informa-
tion officer, said eight of the 33 fires
started by lightning are in Columbia
County. Of those fires, two are on
federal property, including the
Impassable Bay Fire.
'The fires are not cold-dead out,
but they may be contained," Wisner
said. "When the fire is contained

Driver hurt in dump truck crash


From staff reports

A Live Oak man was
injured when his duip truck
overturned Friday afternoon
in Columbia County, accord-
.ing to the Florida Highway


Patrol.
The crash occurred near 3
p.m. at the.intersection of U.S.
90 W and Brown Road.
Randy Norris, 48, was driving
a 1996 West dump truck car-
rying dirt, said Trooper Mike


Oglesby. He was headed south
on Brown Road and making a
left onto 90 W when the load
shifted causing the vehicle to
turn onto its side.
Norris was taken to Shands
Lake Shore for treatment of


head injuries, he said.
FHP directed traffic around
the crash scene until the vehi-
cle could be flipped over. and
towed. Columbia County Fire
and Rescue was on hand to
assist with the crash.

Charter appointments mailed


Review committee
will convene in
coming weeks.

By LEANNE.TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com
Letters are being penned and
mailed to new appointees to the
Columbia County Charter Review
Commission in preparation for
scheduling the commission's first
meeting, officials said Friday.
"Obviously we want to get a
letter out to those that have been
appointed and we'll try to put in
the letter to advise us on a date
to zvhen they'll have their ini-
tial meeting," said Dale Williams,
county manager.
A Columbia County Charter
Review Commission has not met
since 2006 and a new review com-
mission was appointed Thirsday
at the Columbia County Board
of County Commissioners' meet-


ing. It passed on a 3 to 1 vote
with Commissioner Jody DuPree,
board chairman, dissenting and
Commissioner Ron Williams
absent.
DuPree voted' against the
appointments because they
included a county department
head Mario Coppock, county
recreation director.
He said Friday he didn't want
any situation that may arise from
Coppock serving on the commis-
sion to put Coppock in "a bad
position," since he is a county
department director.
"He may feel that he's in a com-
promising position," DuPree said.
"And I don't think its fair to the
employee to do that to him."
"He'd do a great job on it
because he served on it before,"
DuPree said, "but he worked for
the City then. And he's a good
guy, it's not anything about that, -
but I just don't feel like it was fair
to him."
Coppock was one of 15 appoin-


tees selected by the county com-
missioners Jack Berry, Koby
Adams, David Rountree, Nathan
Morgan, Ray Walker, Glynnel
Presley, Ozell Graham, Audrey
Bullard, Rocky Ford, David
Morse, Dean Taylor, John Willis,
Kim Skinner and Sheree Vann.
Commissioners selected three
appointees each from their
respective districts.
Charter counties in Florida
were authorized for the first time
under the 1968 state constitu-
tion.
Columbia County became a
charter county in 2002.
A charter county, explained
Williams, "can create special fea-
tures for its own governance that
are not inconsistent with gen-
eral law. Those things that are not
inconsistent with general law that
a particular unit of government
may wish to provide their own
power and authority to do, you

Firewise team shows kids keys to prevention


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The importance of remain-
ing firewise was stressed
to youngsters visiting Lake
City Thursday morning
when members of a Florida
Interagency Wildland Fire
Prevention Team gave
handouts and various
items promoting safe fire
practices.
The campaign stressing
safe fire practices is a tool
the U.S. Forest Service and
Florida Division of Forestry
is using to emphasize the


danger of wildfires in the
area.
Thursday morning team
members passed out bro-
chure, temporary tattoos,
literature, drink cozies and
slap bracelets at the 2011
Lake City Rookie Qualifier
for Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken
8-under tournament at the
Southside Sport Complex.
The team spent around four
hours distributing informa-
tion promoting safe fire prac-
tices.
"We go to where a lot of
people are meeting because
we want to spread the word


about fire prevention,"
said James Hart, Florida
Interagency Wildland Fire
Prevention Team leader.
"We're trying to help Smoky
Bear spread the word about
fire prevention."
Hart said it's important to
talk to people face-to-face so
that
'There's not a lot we can
do to put out natural fires
- lightning fires," he said.
'We got a lot of lightning fires
going on right now and if we
can control the human fires,
we can put those resources
on the lightning fires."

Stars turn out for Tupac tribute


Even though rapper Rick
Ross lacked a father fig-
ure growing up, he found
guidance through many of
Tupac Shakur's songs that
taught him how to approach life as a
young man.
So when Ross was asked to per-
form at Shakur's 40th birthday con-
cert celebration Thursday night, he
didn't hesitate to take the stage to
pay homage to the slain rapper he
calls his role model.
'Tupac played father for a lot of
dudes like me," Ross told a crowd of
about 500 at the Atlanta Symphony
Hall after he and Meek Mills per-
formed their single 'Tupac Back."
Ross along with singer Erykah
Badu, jazz musician Roy Ayers, rap-
per Bun B, and the rap grdup 8Ball
& MJG joined to raise money for the
Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to
help students develop their skill in
the creative arts.
Comedian Mike Epps hosted
the concert and presented a
$10,000 check to Shakur's mother,
Afeni Shakur, for the foundation.
Attendees stood and applauded Epps
for the donation.
"We celebrated his life more so
his death," said actress Jasmine
Guy, a close friend of the rapper .
who showed a video to honor his life
and highlight his music career. "His
voice still resonates. It's amazing.
That's why is important that we keep
the Shakur foundation going."
Badu took the stage to sing sever-
al of her songs including "Bag Lady."
The Grammy-winning singer also
sang "Soldier," which was dedicated
to Afeni Shakur, who sat a few rows
awaywith a smile .on her face.
"He came at a time when people
weren't looking for a savior, they
were looking for someone who
looked like them," Badu said. "But
saviors, sometimes are just doing the

Agency rejects project
led by U2 guitarist
LOS ANGELES Despite prom-
ises by U2 guitarist The Edge that it
would be one of the greenest devel-
opments in the world, California's
coastal development agency rejected
a proposal for five mansions over-
.looking Malibu citing concerns that
it would irrevocably damage the
environment
On Thursday, staff told the
California Coastal Commission that


approving such a project would
set a precedent and invite other
large developments to rugged,
environmentally sensitive locations.
Commissioners voted 8-to-4 against
the proposal.
"In my 38 years I have never
seen a project as environmentally
devastating as this one," said Peter
Douglas, executive director for the
commission. "An environmentally
sensitive person would never pick
this site to develop."
Following the vote Fiona Hutton,
spokeswoman for the property own-
ers, said they would be "vigorously
exploring all potential options includ-
ing litigation."

Reynolds auctions off
Hollywood treasures
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.- Debbie
Reynolds still knows how to make a
splash.
She was a teenage charmer
opposite Gene Kelly in "Singin' in
the Rain," earned an Oscar nomina-
tion for her gutsy character in 'The
Unsinkable Molly Brown" and, at 79,
is going strong as a nightclub and
theater performer.
On Saturday, Reynolds will dem-
onstrate her flair with an auction
of movie memorabilia she's gath-
ered over four decades and which
includes costumes evoking some of
filmdom's greatest stars and roles.
Among them: The Marilyn Monroe
dress that flirted with a subway gust
in "The Seven Year Itch," Audrey
Hepburn's stunning black-and-white
Ascot race scene gown designed by
Cecil Beaton for "My Fair Lady," and
Elizabeth Taylor's pint-sized race togs
from "National Velvet" and towering
headdress from "Cleopatra."

FCAT cheating
suspected
TALLAHASSEE State
education officials have
asked 14 school dis-
tricts to investigate pos-
sible cheating on the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment'Test after a
security company found
excessive erasures and
other anomalies on more
than 7,000 of the 4 million
exams administered this
year.
The Department of
Education on Friday said
6,967 less than half a
percent of the FCAT.
exams taken this year had
student responses so simi-
lar and statistically aber-.
rant that they were invali-
dated, but school districts
can appeal those findings.
The department also
flagged. a second group
of 854 tests at 21 schools
with erasure levels "that
would be expected to
occur once in a trillion
times when tests are taken
under standardized condi-
tions," Deputy Education
Commissioner Kris
Ellington wrote in a June
9 memo to school superin-
tendents.
The districts are being
required to conduct inves-
tigatiods only of the latter
group of tests, said depart-
inent spokesman Tom
Butler. He said the overall
number of suspicious tests
is something less that the
total for the two groups
because there's some over-
lap.
Ellington, who oversees
accountability, research
and measurement, noted
this is the first year the
state has implemented a
new analysis "designed
to identify schools with
improbable results" on
FCAT reading, writing,
math and science tests.
The focus this year is on
extremely unusual levels
of erasures "that could
involve tampering with test


answer documents."
Penalties for teachers
who commit academic
fraud by helping students
cheat on the tests can be
severe.
The counties where
suspect exams were found
are Miami-Dade, Broward,
Palm Beach, Hillsborough,
Orange, Duval, Flagler,
Polk, Lee, Leon, Manatee,
Seminole, Jefferson and
Gadsden.

RC chopper
monitors crops
LAKE ALFRED The
knee-high contraption rest-
ing on a patch of dirt near
an orange grove looked'
like a cross between a tiny
helicopter and a spider.
But this toy isn't for
kids; the helicopter
made for hobbyists is
actually the latest tech-
nology in crop monitor-
ing.
Standing nearby with
a shiny silver control
panel that looks like
something out of a Star

Reza Ehsani is the pilot
of the remote-controlled
chopper. He flipped a few
switches and the minia-
ture aircraft lifted gently
into the air and "whizzed
over the green trees.
Ehsani fiddled with a
toggle and the helicopter
hovered some 30 feet in
the air over an orange
tree.
"I call it the whirlybird,"
he said.
Although the idea is
still in the research stage,
Ehsani and other Florida
researchers said it's a
promising and inexpensive
way to view crops from
above, giving farmers
much-needed clues about
what's really happening
between the leaves and
branches. They've attached
a GPS device under its
domed top and expensive
camera equipment to its

New wastewater treatment


plant supervisor named


By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com

There's a new face at the
City of Lake City waste-
water treatment plant -
Sonny H.K Van-Skyhawk.
He became wastewater
treatment plant supervisor
April 18.
'The people I work with
are awesome," he said.
"The work environment is
great"
Van-Skyhawk said he
moved to Lake City in July
2010 but has worked in
the wastewater business


for more than 30 years in
a variety of locations, such
as Iraq and Afghanistan.
The city is very forward
thinking with its system
and on the cutting edge
of biosolids application for
waste, Van-Skyhawk said.
"I'm really impressed
with what they do here,"
he said.
Van-Skyhawk said he is
still learning the system
while also providing his
years of expertise to fellow
employees.
"It's a learning experi-
ence for both," he said.


Tours of the wastewater
plant are available to the
community, Van-Skyhawk
said.
"Many don't know what
we do," he said. "They flush
a toilet and it's gone."
Citizens expect good
sewer service and the
plant seeks to ensure
it protects. the public's
health and the environ-
ment, Van-Skyhawk said.
He can be reached at
(386) 758-5454 or vansky-
hawkh@lcfla.com.
"We're public servants
at out finest," he said.


can do through a char-
ter."
Adopting a charter
requires a vote of the peo-
.ple. Any charter amend-
ments from the commis-
sion will appear on the
November 2012 ballot.
"This all ends up on a
ballot and it's up to the
electorate to decide what
to do or not," Williams
said.


The county commis-
sion will help the review
commission with its ini-
tial organizational meet-
ing, Williams said, dur-
ing which the review
commission will select a
chairman and determine
a schedule for meetings.
At a later meeting the
review commission will
adopt bylaws for operat-
ing, he said.


So far, Williams said
he has not heard of any
changes wanting to' be
made to the charter..
"I've not really heard
any particular effort
related to the charter,"
he said. "That's not
uncommon though. I'm
sure that when the com-
mission meets, there
will be several ideas
floated."


FIRES: Lightning sparks more blazes

check it at least once a day.
"So, even though flames
may not be showing, until
it's cold, dead out, we are
still using our resources
and manpower to make
sure it doesn't come back
to life."
The Suwannee Forestry
Center handles wildfires
in a six-county area that
includes Columbia, Baker,
Bradford, Hamilton,
Suwannee and Union
counties.
Most of the active fires
in the Suwannee Forestry
Center were. caused by
lightning strikes.
"Generally speaking,
people are paying attention
to how dry it is, and they
are apparently refraining
from burning' yard trash
and we appreciate it,"
Wisner said. "Our biggest
problem right now is light-
ning-caused fires."
The largest of these
blazes locally is the
Impassable Bay fire near
the Columbia/Baker
County line, which had
burned approximately
10,200 acres.
'That number left only


a small part of the U.S.
Forest Service contain-
mentboundaryunburned,"
Wisner said. "In Friday's
activity, forest service and
support personnel con-
ducted backburning and
aerial ignitions to complete
the remaining unburned
area of Impassable Bay
swamp, This brings the
total impacted area to
about 13,000 acres.'This
should preclude future
fires in that area."
Wisner said the helicop-
ter that made the emer-
gency landing is being
repaired in the field where-
mechanics are replacing
the helicopter's engine
and transmission. He said
repairs are expected to be
completed.after the week-
end.
Firefighters will contin-
ue monitoring the contain-
ment lines and mopping
up burned areas along
the lines to preclude any
future fire activity.

S'The area very likely
will ..smolder and pro-
duce smoke until we get
heavy rains," Wisner said.


"Elsewhere in the area,
lightning strikes continue
to start fires stretching
farther already stretched
resources. Residents are
asked to please avoid out-
door burning if at all pos-
sible."
In light of significant
drought conditions and
the increased threat of
wildfires, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, in coopera-
tion with the state Division
of Forestry and other part-
ner agencies, issued an
executive order Thursday,
prohibiting campfires
in wildlife management
areas, wildlife and environ-
mental areas and all other
lands it manages.
The order went into
effect at 12:01 a.m. and
remains in effect until
rescinded by a subsequent
order. The FWC joins

Anthony defense expert:


Car smell was from trash


By KYLE HIGHTOWER
Associated Press

ORLANDO A defense
expert testified Friday at
the Casey Anthony mur-
der trial, saying the stench
from the trunk of the
woman's car came frgnm a
bag of trash, not the decay-
ing body of her 2-year-old
daughter she is accused of
killing.
University of Nebraska
forensic entomologist
Timothy Huntington also
Said the stain on the carpet
of in the trunk of Anthony's
car did not resemble human
decomposition stains he
has previously seen.
'The evidence doesn't
make sense that there was
a body in the trunk," said
Huntington, whose testi-
mony came on the second
day of defense witnesses.
Anthony is charged with
first-degree murder in the
death of Caylee in the sum-
mer of 2008. The child's
skeletal remains were dis-
covered'in a'wooded area
not far from her grandpar-
ents' home in December of
that year.
Anthony has pleaded not
guilty. She faces a possible
death sentence if convicted.
The prosecution contends
the toddler was suffocated
by duct tape placed over
her nose and mouth. The
defense said in its opening
statement that she drowned
in her grandparents' swim-
ming pool.
Huntington was a pivotal
defense witness, following
testimony last week by the
prosecution's entomology
expert Neal Haskell.
Haskell said he found only
a, small number of bugs on
the toddler's remains in the
woods and on paper tow-
els inside Anthony's trunk;
Huntington told jurors that
he would have expected
to see hundreds of dead
insects if Caylee had been
stored in the trunk.
Hunting said his testi-
mony was based in part
on research he conducted
about what happened to
decomposing pigs inside
car trunks.
In that research, which
took' place in September
2010 in Nebraska,
Huntington put dead pigs
in the trunks of cars and
observed them as they
decomposed. He refer-
enced finding blow flies, or
the first type of flies drawn
to decomposing material,
soon after death. He also
noted the presence of a pro-
nounced stain of decompo-
sition fluid on the carpeting
of his test trunk.


'ASSOCIATED PRESS
Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton, right, handles evi-
dence, with prosecutors Linda Drane Burdick, left, and Frank
George, center, during the cross of entomologist Dr. Tim
Huntington at Casey Anthony's murder trial at the Orange
County Courthouse Friday in Orlando.


He said he would expect
to see the same things in a
trunk with a decomposing
human body.
"If we assume that a body
was in the (Anthony) trunk,
you expect to find many
flies," Huntington said. "...
I would expect to find hun-
dreds, thousands,of those
dead insects as I did in the
experiment"
Huntington described
the decomposition fluid he
observed in the pig exper-
iment as distinct.
"It is a sticky, greasy,
disgusting material," he.
said. "Once it soaks in
there, I'm not sure a pro-
fessional cleaner could get
it out."
Prosecutor Jeff Ashton
attacked Huntington's con-


clusions on cross-exami-
nation. He got Huntington
to acknowledge that
Haskell's report that
wherever the body was
before it was taken to the
woods was likely around
three days. Huntington
also said it was possible
the body was inaccessi-
ble to the blow flies he
described observing in
the pig experiment.
Huntington also said
that in his 75 consultab
tions in homicides with
law enforcement, that
other than his pig experi-
ment, this was the first
actual case or case study
he' had encountered
where a child's decompos-
ing body was suspected to
have been in a car trunk.'

Jobless rate drops to 10.6 percent


AT HANDS HOSPITAL
at Lake Shore GIFT SHOP


BY BILL KACZOR
Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE -
Florida's unemployment
rate dropped slightly in May,
decreasing for a fifth straight
month, and the state led the
nation in job growth over the
month, labor officials said
Friday.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation announced
Florida's seasonally adjusted
jobless rate was down by
two-tenths of a percentage
point to 10.6 percent, but'
that's still the fourth highest
rate in the nation.
Florida also added 28,000
nonagricultural jobs in May,
an increase of 0.4 percent
That put Florida in first place
nationally. Ohio was second
with 12,000 jobs followed by
Louisiana with 10,000 and
Texas with 8,800, said agen-
cy economist Rebecca Rust
The number of nonagri-
cultural jobs in the state is
up 24,900 over the year, an
increase of 0.3 percent from
May 2010. The over-the-year
figure is lower because of
job losses in several of those
12 months. Florida ranks
eighth-best nationally in this
category.


"Our unemployment rate
is now the lowest it has
been in 21 months, and
we can expect our state's
heightened focus qn eco-
nomic recovery to spur
additional job growth in
the months ahead," said
Cynthia Lorenzo, the agen-
cy's director.
It'll need to grow con-
siderably, though, for Gov.
Rick Scott to keep his
promise of adding 700,000
new jobs in seven years..
Those would be in addition
to the million jobs expect-
ed to be created over that
span as Florida's economy
recovers from the Great
Recession. If job growth
continues at the annual
current rate, Florida would
add only 174,300 new jobs
in seven years, far short of
Scott's goal.
While Florida's jobless
rate has dropped every
month since the Republican
governor took office in
January, it remained 1.5
percentage points above
the national unemployment
rate for May of 9.1 percent
"Since I took office,
we've created 76,000 jobs
for parents, recent gradu-
ates, workforce veterans


and all Floridians who have
been struggling to get back
on their feet," Scott said
in a statement He called
the continuing decline in
Florida's unemployment
rate and the state's lead-
ership in job creation last
month as "a huge win for
Floridians."
"It is unfortunate the fed-
eral government can't say
the same thing for the rest
of the country," Scott said.
"Our efforts to make Florida
the most business friendly
state are clearly paying off
and we are bucking the
national trend."
Not all assessments of
Florida's economic outlook
were so glowing, though.
Florida's economy is
"moving at the speed of a
glacier" and hiring probably
won't really accelerate until
next year, said University of
Central Florida economist
Sean Snaith.
May was the eighth con-
secutive month to have job
growth compared with the
same month in the previous
year since Florida started
losing jobs in July 2007.
The leisure and hospi-
tality industry led the way
by adding 45,100 jobs, an


increase of 4.9 percent, since
May 2010.
'This is due to food ser-
vices and drinking places,"
Rust said.
Other sectors with growth
include private education,
health services, trade, trans-
portation, utilities, and pro-
fessional and business ser-
vices.

Saudi ban

on women

driving is

against

Islam

S audi Arabia is the land
of immobile women.
No other nation
prohibits women from
driving or indeed
moving in any capacity without
male consent. As of today,
Saudi women are protesting
the kingdom's driving ban
from behind the wheel of their
cars. These women'unnerve
the state, for While popular
opinion is on their side, so, too,
is Islam.
When I moved to Saudi
Arabia to practice medicine from
1999-2001, Ileft my car in New
York. For the first time, as a
Muslim woman, Islam was now
the basis for my confinement
and not my freedom.
The Saudi driving prohibition
was "cultural" until Nov. 6,
1990, when 47 veiled Saudi
women defied the ban and
drove in a 14-vehicle convoy on
the King Abdul Aziz highway
in Riyadh. They were inspired
by American female GIs in
their military 4hicles during
Desert Storm and by Kuwaiti
women who had arrived in the
kingdom as Saddam Hussein
attacked Kuwait
For their insurrection, these
women were arrested, jailed
for several hours, and their
passports confiscated. They
were summarily dismissed
from their jobs and banifed '
from traveling overseas for
one year. Soon after, Saudi
authorities issued explicit
fatwas, or religious edicts,
banning driving by women.
Ironically, the ban is
particularly problematic for
an Islamic monarchy since it
is fundamentally unlslamic.
Muslim women lacking male
relatives have been making
solo pilgrimages to Mecca for
centuries without restriction.
Their journeys reflect Islam's
recognition of their rights as
individuals.
One need only look at the
very genesis of Islam the
ayyam-al Sahaba (the days of
the companions of the Prophet
Muhammad) for evidence of
women's freedom of agency.

Golfer Ken Venturi's


inspiring win at '64 Open


A s the world's lead-
ing golfers, with the
exception of a still
ailing Tiger Woods,
begin the sport's
toughest challenge at nearby
Congressional Country Club,
itseems important somehow
to take note of the lesson in
courage that occurred during
the first U.S. Open held on this
course 47 years ago. It is a tes-
tament to the resilience of the
human spirit
On a stinking-hot, humid
Satitrday in June for which this
part of the country is notorious,
a 33-year -old professional
named Ken Venturi displayed
the kind of determination to
succeed that few of us can
ever muster even if we get the
chance. That he was equal to
the challenge after several years
of struggling to overcome bad
luck, a crumbling marriage
and a host of other demons,
physical and psychological, was
at the time considered almost a
miracle.
A brilliant amateur from San
Francisco, he once had led
the Masters Tournament at
Augusta, only to falter on the
last day. His skill and eagerness
had attracted the attention
of the two greatest names of
professional golf at the time,
Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan,
both of whom had ascended
from the great caddy tradition
that nurtured Venturi.
The 1964 Open was to be the
last time this grueling test of
stamina, luck and ability would
feature the ultimate test, two
finishing rounds 36 holes on
Saturday. For years after most
other sports had abandoned
the traditional ban on Sunday


.-

Dan K.Thomasson
performance, golf's governing
body had continued to pay
homage to the Sabbath blue
laws.
Older professionals were
particularly victimized by the
Saturday finish, which strained
aging muscles and joints and
mental toughness. Contrary
to anti-golf propaganda,
swinging a club properly
requires an athletic skill that
can put as much stress on
knees, shoulders and wrists as
throwing a baseball or football.
Hogan, the victim of an earlier
car crash that nearly killed him,
might have won his fifth Open
(actually his sixth, seeing that at
the beginning of World War II
he won this tournament when it
was held under another name)
in 1960 at age 47 had he not
been forced to play 36 holes on
Saturday.
On this day in 1964, with the
temperature hovering around
100 and the humidity in the
high double digits, Venturi
stumbled into the locker room
at the end of the first round
clearly suffering from extreme
dehydration. His Bay-area
upbringing had not prepared
him for this. As he sprawled on
the floor by his locker attended
by a doctor, he was warned
that to go back out for the final
round would risk his life. He
had dropped from 176 pounds


to 168 and he was popping salt
tablets at a furious rate. .%
But here was a young man
who had clawed his way back
from a devastating pattern of
adversity, and he was not going
to blow it now. When the time
came, he dragged himself out
for the final 18, stood up at
the first tee and made history,
sustained, he said later, by
his faith in himself and the
Almighty. His ball stroking was
miraculously steady and the
doctor who walked alongside
hiri marveIld at What he was
seeing. By the time he reached
the lasthole, he was on remote
control and would remember
little about the experience.
Those of us who watched
this incredible exhibition of
will, either in person or as
one of millions on television,
will never forget it The white-
capped, almost wraith like
figure resolutely slogged his
way up the fairway, one foot
after another, to cheers of the
throngs who stood sopping and
sobbing. For those who follow
the game, the rest is familiar.
He stayed at the top of the sport
awhile, but his hands failed him
and he retired to become for 35
years a revered television voice
of golf.
Ken Venturi just turned 80. If
you are lucky enough to get a
ticket or watch TV closely, you
might see him, slim and straight
and still 176 pounds, walking
along a Congressional fairway
he knows well in a gam6 he
helped make better for later,,
generations.

ANOTHER OPINION

Why I couldn't write the 'Top


10 rules' for new fathers


million babies were born
in America. Which means
a lot of new fathers were
born. Making this their
first Father's Day. So I wanted
to share some lessons from 25
years on the job.
I know guys like rules. So I
tried writing 'The Top 10 rules
for new Fathers." (We men love
Top 10 lists, too, so that would
have been a coup). I didn't get
very far. I also looked at compil-
ing a list of axioms from sports
and business that might be
instructive. But that also turned
out to be a fool's errand.
The challenge with being
a father is that you can't trust
your instincts. The lessons that
made you a good athlete or a
success at work don't apply:


Set goals. Create a strategy or
action plan. Work hard. It's all
wrong. Fatherhood is the least
goal-oriented enterprise you've
ever embarked on. Its not about
outcomes; its about process.
Fatherhood is the art of
being there. And if you love to
check things off your list, as I
do, you're going to have some
problems. You're about to run
smack up against the inertia
that is children. I remember
going out and buying a bunch
of great books to read to my
kids. (Iwas an English major.)
I wanted to check the classics
off the list so we could move
on. I started with "Good Night
Moon" and got stuck there for
about six months. Why would a
kid want to have the same book
read over and over? Has he no


ambition?
Ditto for music and movies.
(Once when my daughter Zoey
was two and running a high
fever, I held her in my arms
while she dozed in and out of
sleep, and we watched "Beauty
and the Beast" six times in a
row. Every time that last scene
came up, she said, "Again.")
The only way to get through
the repetition is to live in the
moment Which is the only
place your kid lives. It's not
easy. Because men are taught to
live in the future. To always be
working toward something.
A walk to the coffee shop
down the street is not a walk to
the coffee shop. You may never
get there.

Michele

Bachmann

shines like

GOP's star

A new Rasmussen
poll shows that
following the
Republican debate
An New Hampshire,
Michele Bachmann catapulted
into the No. 2 slot as a pro-
spective nominee behind Mitt
Romney.
Bachmann's performance at
the debate, her national debut
as a presidential candidate, .
may well be seen as "A Star is
Born."
She was clear, focused,
Sprincipled and beautiful and
became a focal point of excite-
ment and surprise regard-
ing her potential as a new-
Republican leader and star.
Many see former Romney
as a formidable and impressive
man. And much of conven-
tional wisdom considering
his experience, organization,
money, capability, and presi-
dential persona says that the
Republican nomination is his
to lose.
But, these are not conven-
tional times.
Similar conventional rea-
soning assumed that Hillary
RodhamiClinton, and not a
young black man who had not
completed even one term in the
U.S. Senate, would capture the
Democrats' nomination in 2008.
Barack Obama achieved the
unimaginable by tapping into
general dissatisfaction with
the status quo, a sense among
voters that what is wrong with
America reflects business
as usual in Washington, and
inherent American idealism.
Three years later, these
same voter sentiments are
still there. But now many who
jumped on the Obama train
understand that he was just
slick, new packaging for old
big government liberalism.
Three years later, with 9
percent unemployment and
no signs of recovery, it's clear
to even those not inclined to
ideology that this is not the
change they had in mind.
Only 20 percent of
Americans, in latest Gallup
polling, are satisfied with the
way things are going in the
country.
Only 44 percent believe that
today's youth in America will
grow up to have better lives
than their parents. This is the
most pessimistic recording
ever of this sentiment
Sadly, our nation today is
a ship lost at sea. We are in
dismal shape. And we are not
going to recover until we come
to terms with this fact
Look at Greece. The coun-
try is bankrupt due to mis-
guided welfare state policies.
Undisciplined government
spending fueled by the lie that
government can solve all of
life's problems for its citizens
has now hit the wall of reality,
as the well has run dry.
Citizens have taken to the
streets because they can't believe
it's true. Surely there must be an
infinite source of funds to finance
everything*they want
Unfortunately, too many
Americans refuse to let go
of similar illusions that these
Greeks cling to today. We need
leadership that can articulate
the truth and lead our nation
into a new time in which we
literally re-invent ourselves.

MCPEAK: Life skills

Continued From Page 5A


sayings from Solomon.
These sayings of Solomon
teach us a lot of the life
skills we need to live in this
world from God's perspec-
tive.
The question is why
would we value these short
sayings. The answer is that
we value and respect what
the Lord has to say about
any subject These short
sayings would not teach us
anything about life to say
nothing about the skills
that we need to live in this
life if we did not "fear the
Lord" first There would be
no reason for us to acquire
the knowledge the Lord has
given. We must have this


"fear" first then will come
the knowledge (Proverbs
1:7).
As one reads the book
of Proverbs they will find
that there are sections
where there isjust a short
sentence that will teach a
certain life skill. In other
sections there will be
several verses that are con-
nected together that will tell
a story that illustrates a life
skill. Throughout the book
wisdom is personified as
being a teacher of the one
who wants to be wise. Also
very common is the phrase,
"Hear, my son, the instruc-
tion of your father."
The book of Proverbs



OBITUARIES


would be very good for
any parent to read multiple
times to their children if
they want to teach them
really good life skills. If a
young person wants to have
a better understanding of
life and how to live in this
world, these short sayings
from Solomon would be
very motivating and instruc-
tional. "A word to the wise
is enough."

Spectators fight at trial


ORLANDO A brawl
broke out among specta-
tors waiting in line for
Casey Anthony trial tick-
ets in Florida.
The Orlando Sentinel
reports that two men
tried to cut in line early
Friday morning, start-
ing a brawl and shout-
ing match as others in
line fought back.


Spectators line up
outside the courthouse
each morning, hop-
ing to secure seats in
the courtroom where
25-year-old Anthony
is standing trial in the
death of her 2-year-old
daughter, Caylee. Many
arrive at the courthouse
in the wee hours of the
morning to get in line.


The fight'broke out as
the crowd was moving to
a location closer to the
courthouse entrance.
Twenty-seven-year-old
Jessie Dorris says she was
shocked when the men
"just cut in front of us."
The fight broke up and
there were no arrests.

muscle wasting (atrophy).
Advanced leprosy would
only be seen in isolation
areas." (Bible Dictionary
Definition.)
You would think that
all ten would have come
back and thanked God for
their healing. They were
isolated from all people
except other lepers. Now
they could go back to their
families and friends and
live normal lives. In stead
only one of the ten came
back. How insulting to
the Healer. Most today
say they don't understand
why, but wait Look what
God has done for the His
people today. He healed


these from a disease. He
has healed us from the
penalty of sin. He has
taken us from the path to
hell and has made us eter-
nal citizens of heaven.
How often do we give
thanks and praise Him?
Many today who call them-
selves Christian don't, or
hardly ever, go to God's
house to worship and give
thanks to Him for saving
their Souls. Hebrews
10:24-26 says: "Let us con-
sider one another in order
to stir up love and good
works, NOT FORSAKING
THE ASSEMBLING
S(emphasis mine) of our-
selves together, as the


manner of some, but
exhorting one another,
and so much the more as
you see the Day approach-
ing. For if we sin willfully
after we have received the
knowledge of the truth,
there no longer remains a
sacrifice for sins." (NKJV.)
Christians, I call on you
to be more thankful to our
Savior. Give Him praise
and thankfulness by being
a part of His work on
earth. A great way to do
that is by attending a Bible
believing church.

er in Lake City available for

All


for


Rory


We've
seen this
before.
Rory
McIlroy
has again jumped out
to a blazing start in
one of golf's major
championships.
McIlroy gained
unwanted fame after
an epic collapse at the
Masters that only Greg
Norman could laugh at
It was how he handled
the failure that endeared
me to him.
At only 22-years of
age, Mcllroy speaks
with a composure well
beyond his years. Instead
of handing out excuses,
McIlroy spoke about
using the tanked final
round as motivation and
a learning experience.
This week, we'll get a
chance to see just how
much he's learned.
He again jumped out
with a lightning-quick
start during his 6-under
opening round. McIlroy
shot 5-under on Friday to
finish at 11-under and set
a new 36-hole record for
the U.S. Open.
At one point during
the final round McIlroy
reached 13-under before
a double bogey on the
last hole sent him back a
little closer to the rest of
the field.
During the Masters,
when confronted with a
bad hole, the bottom fell
out Hell have a night
to sleep on the one bad
hole he's had on the
opening 36.
The question is, how
will he resporid?
He's been in this
situation before now.
Will he figure out how
to turn off the pressure
at an early age? It took
Phil Mickelson years to
turn off the final-round
meltdowns.
Will this continue
to be a theme for the
Irish golfer's career?
Norman could never
shake the final-round
blunders. There are
countless tournaments
that Norman should have
won, but he couldn't
close.
Or.will McIlroy be
different? Will he shoot
to the forefront of the
golf world at a young
age like Tiger Woods?
Could he be the next
great thing-and challenge
Woods once he's
recovered from a knee
injury?
This weekend's finish
will probably tell the
future of Mcllroy. If he
can reverse his fortune,
look out He may never
reach Woods' status, but
he certainly could knock
on the door.

New machines
used at Rookie
Qualifier.

By BRANDON FINLEY-:
bfinley@lakecityreporter.corn
There's a new feel to
the Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken
Rookie Qualifier tourna-
ment in Lake City. That's
because there are new pitch-
ing machines for the first
time in the tournament's
history.
Not only are the new
Louisville Slugger pitch-
ing machines cheaper, but
they are also much more
efficient according to Babe
Ruth State Commissioner
John Lucas.
"They're cheaper than
the old ones by about a 10-1
margin and they also work
without electricity," Lucas
said. "They're portable, you
can fold up and carry them
and they're more consis-
tent."
Lucas said that Florida
is one of the last southern
states to.make the switch.
"These machines have
been around for five years,"
he said. "We had such
success with the previous
machines that we were
reluctant If it's not broke,
why fix it? So far though,
we've been very happy with
.the switch."
. Lucas only noticed one
disadvantage, but it has
already been solved.
'The bags were sliding
on the sand, but we put a
sandbag in front of them
and that took that issue
away," he said.
Teams were notified of
the switch two years in
advance and many teams
have practiced with the new
machines due to the price
differential. It also saves
money for the tournament
on buying baseballs.
'With the old machine,
the balls would just get
chewed up," he said. "These
new machines don't eat
away at the baseballs. We're
going through about half as
many as we did with the old
machine."
Only time will tell if the
Louisville Slugger pitching
machine will hold up over
the long run, but with a
savings of nearly $1,500 on
the old machines, there's
money to spare to buy
replacements.

Offense down, but


coaches like new bats


By ERIC OLSON
Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. -
Offensive numbers are
down in college baseball
because of new bat stan-
dards that went into effect
this season.
According to NCAA
Division .1 statistics
through the end. of the
regular season May 22,
the overall team batting
average dropped from .305
last season to .282. Home
runs were nearly cut in
half, from 0.93 a game to
0.52, and scoring was down
from 7.01 runs a game to
5.62. Sacrifice bunts were
up from 0.58 a game to
0.75.
Team ERAs went from
5.97 to 4.70, and there
were 886 shutouts pitched
compared with 525 a year
ago.
The new metal bats
must meet a standard
the Ball-Bat Coefficient
of Restitution (BBCOR) -
and are designed to lower
ball exit speeds off the bat
The change was made to
make the game safer and
to tone down a game that
had become overly offen-
sive.
In an American Baseball
Coaches Association sur-
vey taken this spring, 83
percent of Division I coach-
es either liked the change
or found it acceptable.
'"The coaches feel it's
here to stay, and they're
going to adapt to that,"
ABCA executive director
Dave Keilitz said Friday.
'Those who didn't like it
at first, as the season went
on and they got used to it,
it became more acceptable
to them. I would dare say
in another year we won't


hear anything about it at
all."

Injury report
South Carolina got some
good news and bad news
on the injury front.
The good: center fielder
Jackie Bradley, the Most
Outstanding Player of the
2011 CWS, has been acti-
vated after being out the
past two months with an
injury to his left wrist.
The bad: leadoff batter
Evan Marzilli, who moved
from left field to center
after Bradley got hurt, is
day-to-day after tweaking a
hamstring Thursday.
Gamecocks coach Ray
Tanner said Marzilli (bat-
ting .299) insists he'll play
Sunday against Texas
A&M.
"We'll just have to see
where he is the next cou-
ple days," Tanner said. "He
said, 'Don't think about me
not playing. I'll be fine.'
Well just have to wait and
see."
Cal, meanwhile, is hope-
ful it will have starter Justin
Jones (9-6, 2.93 ERA) avail-
able sometime during the
CWS. The sophomore
left-hander has a strained
left bicep. That leaves
Erik Johnson (7-4, 2.91) to
start against Virginia. on
Sunday.

Water watch
Missouri River floodwa-
ters are just a few blocks
east of TD Ameritrade
Park. Sandbags surround
key pieces of infrastruc-
ture around the ballpark.
A parking lot had water
pumped out because a
flood-stressed sewer pipe
broke.


Dennis Poppe, NCAA
vice president for football
and baseball, said city offi-
cials and engineers have
assured him that the CWS
should go off without a
hitch.
"We've been reassured
there are no issues," he
said. "You never know what
Mother Nature is going to
do. But at this point We're
in very good shape."
Virginia coach Brian
O'Connor, who grew up
across the river in Council
Bluffs, Iowa, said he was
stunned to see the flood
devastation north of the
ballpark as his team landed
in Omaha on Thursday.
"Being from here, look-
ing out the window of the
plane as we were approach-
ing the airport, I felt really,
really sad," he said. "Just to
see the farmland around the
airport all washed away, it's
terrible for the people here.
I know, fortunately, we'll
be able to get the College
World Series in, but you
feel terrible for those peo-
ple. And (the water) is not
going anywhere. It seems
like it's going to continue
for the summer."

Please pick us
Local fans typically adopt
an underdog to root for,
and Vanderbilt coach Tim
Corbin hopes his team is
the one this year.
"I would imagine know-
ing the crowd out there
they always pull for first-
timers, so I'm fure that
California and Vanderbilt
will be two teams that
they'll be pulling for," he
said. "And that's not all
bad. Even if they don't, it's
very bipartisan crowds, so
it'll be nice."

OPEN: McIlroy 11-under for 36 holes


Continued From Page 1B
been bigger had Mcllroy
not hooked his drive on 18
into'the trees and knocked
the recovery shot into the
water left of the green. He
made double-bogey there
- a bummer of a way to
close a round that had been
virtually error free until
then.
So good, in fact, that
after back-to-back bird-
ies ori 16 and 17, McIlroy
did something nobody had
ever done. He reached 13-
under par, the lowest score
at any point in ,the history
of the tournament, break-
ing a record held by Tiger
Woods and Gil Morgan.
Despite the late hiccup,
McIlroy still held a six-shot
lead over Y.E. Yang, who
teed off about the same
time McIlroy left the course
and made two birdies over
the front nine to move to
5-under par. As he made
the turn, a thunderstorm
hit Congressional and play
was suspended.
Zach Johnson, Sergio
Garcia, Robert Garrigus
and Brandt Snedeker fin-
ished the day at 2 under.
With about half the players
still on the course, nobody
else was making a run.
"If he keeps playing the
way he's playing, we're all
playing for second place,"
Snedeker said.


McIlroy became the fast-
est player to reach double
digits under par at the U.S.
Open (26 holes). And he
had a chance of holding the
biggest lead at the halfway
point of the tournament,
a record that belongs to
Woods, who led by six after
36 holes of his indelible per-
formance at Pebble Beach
in 2000.
Coming off a final-round
collapse at the Masters
two months ago, McIlroy
is still search of his first
major. Now, it's just a
matter of which way he'll
go. Of the four previous
players to reach 11-under
par or better at the U.S.
Open, two have won easily
(Woods and Jim Furyk in
2003) and two have melted
down (Morgan in 1992 and
Barnes in 2009).
McIlroy said he's changed
a few things since Augusta.
"I said I needed to be a
little more cocky, a little
more arrogant on the golf
course, and think a little bit
more about myself, which,
I've tried to incorporate a
little bit, just on the golf
course," he said. "I just try
and have a bit of an attitude,
you know?"
Mcllroy holed out from
the eighth fairway for an
eagle that got him to 10
under. He made five bird-


ies, 11 pats and still techni-
cally doesn't have a bogey,
even though he did make
the double on 18. He hit 15
mbre greens in regulation
to bring his total to 32 of 36
for the tournament. Before
No. 18, even when he got in
trouble, he turned out OK.
After hitting his approach
into the bunker on No. 11,
he saved par with a 10-foot
putt.
But the signature shot
from this day was the
eagle on 8. Hitting a short
approach, he bounced the
ball at the back of the green,
it hit twice then spun and
rolled slowly before drop-
ping into the cup. McIlroy
raised both hands in the
air. Phil Mickelson, play-
ing in the same threesome,
applauded.
What else could he do?
"He's striking it flawles-s-
ly and putted great on the
greens," said Mickelson,
who shot 69 to close at 1
over. "His first two rounds
were very impressive."
Mcllroy backed up the
eagle with five straight pars,
then stiffed his approach on
14 to four feet and made the
putt to move to 11 under.
On No. 16, he barely
missed an 8-foot eagle putt
that would've put him at 13
under. But he got to that
number on 17.

DEAR ABBY


Star in his girlfriend's eyes

triggers boyfriend's jealousy


BEING HAVE YOU
USELESS SEEN THE
SEEMS TIE CLIP I
RISKIER. GOT FOR 20
YEARS OF
I SERVICE?


DEAR ABBY: I have
been in a relationship with
a great guy, "Jonah," for four
months. We get along well
and enjoy a lot of the same
things. At times he can be
jealous when other men
notice me, butwe have never
had arguments about it. Only
one thing about me really
bothers him my infatua-
tion with Mark Wahlberg.
Jonah is so upset about
it he refuses to see any of
Mark's films with me. It irks
me because I know being
with Mark isn't a realistic
option, but Jonah acts like it
is. What can I say to make
him see that he (Jonah) is
the only one I want to be with
and Mark is just a fantasy? -
STAR-CROSSED LOVER
DEAR STAR-CROSSED:
You may have said too much
already. Stop bringing up
Mark Wahlberg and see his
films in the company of your
girlfriends. While Jonah may
be a "great guy," he appears
to be somewhat insecure,
which is why he becomes
jealous when another man
notices you. Insecure men
can become irrational and
controlling, so monitor his
behavior and don't make any
commitments until you both
have matured.
DEAR ABBY: I am being
married at the end of the
summer. It will be a formal
wedding. I have a biological
father I see once or twice a


times, hurtful responses.
Some samples: "Whose idea
was that?!" "You know she's
going to starve, don't you?"
"Oh... they don't make much
money," and, "I'm sorry!"
These comments come from
people with whom we've
had warm relationships for
years.
We know our daughter
won't be rich. That's not,
her objective. We're proud'
of Melanie's choice and
how hard she has prepared.
We think shell be a won-
derful social worker. We
have always been support-
ive of our friends' children
and their choices. Is there,
a way to respond to these':
people without being rude?
- PROUD PARENTS IN
DES MOINES
DEAR PROUD
PARENTS: You SHOULD
be proud. You have raised
a daughter who will make I
an important contribution to
the lives of those she touch-i
es. When someone makes a
thoughtless comment such
as the ones you mentioned;
tell them what you wrote
to me: "We're proud of ourt
daughter's choice and how
hard she has worked to pre-
pare. We know shell be a
wonderful social worker."

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Don't let any-
one strong-arm you into
something you don't want
to do. Dishonesty, coupled
with emotional blackmail,
will be used against you.
Protect yourself from those'
trying to take advantage of
.your kindness and generos-
ity. **
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Don't put off
what you can get done now.
Focus on the things that
will make the biggest dif-
ference to your life. Pick up
skills or attend a seminar
to learn how to make the,
most of your talents and
finances. *****
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): You will be able
to make a wise investment
choice or a move that will
enhance your financial
position. Take tight control
of your money matters and
you can avoid being taken
advantage of. Joint ven-
tures may be enticing but
are probably not in your
best interest ***
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): There is money
to be made if you aggres-
sively pursue something
at which you feel you can
excel. Offering a service or
product that is in demand
will turn into a lucrative
part time business. Don't
limit what you can .do
because you lack faith in
your ability. ***


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): You may feel vul-
nerable or out of place
but that doesn't mean
you need to buy friend-
ship orlove. Take a quiet,
reserved approach to your
personal life and problems
and you will find someone
who feels the same way
you do. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Don't let work or the
lack of job opportunities
get you down. You are not
too far from finding what
you want Put more effort
into something you do well.
Any personal changes you
make will turn out favor-
ably. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct..
22): Remember what
has happened in the past
when you mix finances
with emotions and you will
keep your money separate.
There are plenty of oppor-
tunities for partnerships
or ways to enhance a rela-
tionship you are already
in that don't require cash.
Strive for balance and
integrity. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): You can benefit
from financial investments
that relate to property.
You may not be able to
trust your judgment when
dealing with friends, rela-
tives or neighbors. If you


think someone is taking
advantage of you, back
away. **J
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. ,21): You are
heading in the right direc-
tion. There is no time to
waste, so do not deviate. A
change at home will allow'
you to enjoy a relationship
with someone you cher-
ish. Love is highlighted.

CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Invite
friends 'over for a get-
together or make changes
to your home that add to its
value and comfort. Being
a participant will help you
make new friends. Don't
neglect someone who has
been there for you in the
past. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Keep things
simple and within your
financial means. As long
as you are honest about
what you can and cannot.;
do, you will make a lasting
impression on someone
you want to get to know
better. Love is highlight-
ed. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): You will hurt
someone's feelings if you
are too critical: Look at
the big picture and you
will realize that being stub-
born or unwilling to com-
promise will work,against
you. Strive for unity and
equality. ****
