pumping up to 155 millions of water a day
from the Floridan Aquifer compare their

biblical times with a difference.

Jacksonville Electric Authority to draw water
from the aquifer.
And the Davids are the 16 mostly small,
rural north and central Florida counties
whose economies are dependent on tourism
dollars generated by local springs, creeks,
tributaries and rivers that are already experi-
encing record-low levels.
Elected officials say their individual coun-
ties are too small to challenge a water man-
agement district's decision. But if all the
affected counties join forces, they might win.

What do those photographs
say about your family and the ,
way you were brought up?
Well, if you Were brought up in
a close middle-class family, as I'
was, they say a lot.
For one thing, they tell us ''
what was important back then.
In the 1940s, most of the pic-

were taken with the family car.
Sometimes they were leaning
back on the hood, sometimes
sitting or propped on the run- '

other college coach in my life.
I met him in 2000, when I vis-'
ited historically black Stillman
College in Tuscaloosa, Ala., as
guest lecturer. The year before,'
SStillman's president, Ernest
McNealey, hired the then-68-
year-old Danzy to revive the
college's football program after
a 50-year hiatus. Danzy, who
had retired, had coached at five
One of McNealev's main rea-.
sons for bringing back football
was to increase the number of -
males on campus. During recent
years, 70 percent of the student
population, which averaged
roughly 1,000, had been female.
McNealey correctly believed
football would help reverse that
trend. During the first season,
more than 200 males enrolled.
McNealey said the key to'
success was having the right
coach: "I selected a coach that
I thought would bring the same,,
values . that are inthe institu-
tion already. If athletes don't do
their work, they will go home.
If they don't behave, they go
home. We fully expect our stu-
dents to go to class. We fully.
expect them to graduate."
I asked Danzy why he had
taken on the task of starting a
program from scratch. "I had
been reading that one in every
three black males couldn't
vote because they were in jail
or in some other kind ofsitu-
ation where voting was taken
away from them," he, said. "I
told myself the best way for.
me to help is to step in here at
Stillman. I had been successful

"Let's find out who's gaining politically
by this configuration," he said.
The maps are designed to protect
existing minority representation as
required by two anti-gerrymandering
amendments to the Florida Constitution

federal Voting Rights Act.
That includes the meandering 3rd
Congressional District seat held by U.S.
Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville,
which would be little changed by the
Senate's proposed map.
"What.that leads us to is some very
odd geometry along the St. Johns
River -and into central 'Florida," said

Chairman Don Gaetz, R-Niceville. "The

Parents' Night Out this past
Tuesday, Nov. 15. A delicious
Italian dinner was enjoyed
by the parents while the chil-

While dining, the parents
were serenaded with Italian
music and a special p( rfor-
mance by our own faculty
member, Mr. Bob Ellis. Mr.
Ellis is a wonderful violinist
and even sang "0 Solo Mio"
in Italian. As they enjoyed a
chocolate surprise dessert,
the parents listened to a
presentation by Police Chief
Argatha Gilmore. She shared
her experiences of growing
up with parents that encour-
aged her to be the best stu-
dent that she could be and
all about their role as parents
in her educational process.
Everyone enjoyed her inspi-
rational talk. After dining, the
parents split up into grade
levels and visited classrooms
where teachers shared valu-
able information on what ,
was going on in that grade
level. The parents enjoyed
participating in learning new
modern math methods such
as .'partial quotient division'
and the "UNRAVEL' process
used in reading. We hope

coach returns to
By RUSTY MILLER
COLUMBUS, Ohio If
Ohio State did not come
calling, Urban Meyer says
he was planning to stay
away from coaching for at
least another year.
Meyer, the former
Florida coach and native
Buckeye, was officially
hired Monday by Ohio
State, a program with a
glittering past that has suf-
fered through a difficult
year of NCAA violations.
"If not for the coaching
position at Ohio State, I
would not have coached
this year," he said.
Meyer resigned as
Gators coach after last sea-
son, citing health concerns
and a desire to spend more
time with his family.
"A year ago in my mind I
was convinced I was done
coaching," he said.
He added that he is feel-
"I've been checked out
and- I'm ready to go," he
said. "I've been to a place
and I don't want to go
Meyer will become one
of the highest paid coach-
es in college football,
along with Alabama's Nick
Saban and Oklahoma's
Bob Stoops, and Texas'
Mack Brown. The school
says he will receive a six-
year contract that pays
$4 million annually, plus
another $2.4 million total
in "retention payments."
He also can qualify for
supplemental bonuses. .
Interim coach Luke
Fickell, who took over
when Jim Tressel was
forced out for breaking
NCAA rules, will coach
the Buckeyes (6-6) in their
bowl game and be retained
by Meyer as an assistant,
although Meyer declined
to say in what capacity.
Ohio State Athletic
Director Gene Smith said
his first conversation with
Meyer about becoming
coach was on Nov. 20 by
phone. Smith said the two
met face-to-face Nov. 23.
Meyer won two national
championships in six years
as the coach at Florida.
Now, the 47-year-old will
return to the place where
his college coaching career
began in 1986 after a year
as an ESPN game analyst.

LSU, Alabama rematch seems certain
By RALPH D. RUSSO
Only a major upset or a
dramatic shift by voters can
prevent a rematch between
LSU and Alabama in the-
BCS national championship
The Tigers and Crimson
Tide hold down the top two
spots for the second straight
week, and by a wide margin
over third-place Oklahoma
State. Stanford is fourth and
Virginia Tech fifth.
LSU (1.000 BCS aver-
age) is a unanimous No. 1
in both the coaches' poll
and the Harris poll, and is
top-ranked in the computer
ratings. Alabama (.9551) is
an overwhelming No. 2 in
the polls.and second in the
Oklahoma State (.8712),.
with one game ,left against
Oklahoma- on Saturday, is
third in the computer rat-
ings and fifth in the polls.
LSU (12-0) plays Georgia
in the Southeastern
game on Saturday. If the
Tigers lose to the Bulldogs,
they still have a chance to
remain in the top two and
play for the national title.
Alabama's season is over.
Oklahoma State plays
Oklahoma on Saturday,
with the chance for another
statement victory against a
good team. But with the
Cowboys fifth in both polls
it would take an enormous
swing by voters to. push
them past either SEC team.
Michigan State and
Wisconsin play in the Big
Ten championship game
with the winner going to
the Rose Bowl.
Oregon and UCLA meet
in the Pac-12 title game
Friday night with a Rose
Bowl berth on the line.
Oklahoma State might
be shut out of the national
title game, but the Bedlam
rivalry game will determine
the Big 12 champion anda
spot in the Fiesta Bowl.
The 'Atlantic Coast
game between Clemson
and Virginia Tech will deter-
mine which teams plays in
the Orange Bowl.

WE NEED ANOTHER 'EATING HOLIDAY'
TO GO BETWEEN THANKSGIVING AND
15 PURE H OULODA ,
FRANK & ERNEST
DEAR ABBY: My wife of
25 years has an annoying
habit that drives me crazy.
When she starts a conversa-
tion with me, shell speak
in a very low voice and
mumble without looking
at me. I truly cannot hear
or understand what she's
saying and have to respond
with, "Excuse me?" "Pardon
me?" or "What?"
When I speak to her, I
make sure I talk clearly
and in a loud enough voice,
but she always throws the
same remarks back at me
"Excuse me?" etc. She
doesn't do this with anyone
else. I have pointed out to
her that what she is doing
is annoying, disrespectful
and rude, and asked her
to please not do it, but she
Why does she do this
to me, and what can we
do to change it? There's
nothing wrong with her
hearing. She's always
telling me to turn down
the TV. MARRIED TO
A MUMBLER IN SAN
DEAR MARRIED TO
A MUMBLER Allow me
to offer a suggestion that
may improve the situa-
tion: Have YOUR hearing
checked. If you can't hear
your wife when she speaks
softly and isn't looking
directly at you, and she.
"always" tells you to turn
down the TV, it could indi-
cate that you are suffering
from a hearing loss.
DEAR ABBY: My mother,
ARIES (March 21-April
19): Look past the obvious.
Don't let the little things
bother you. It's how you
:perform and what you do
to make things better that
will count in the' end. Use
your head, think matters
through and avoid argu-
ing' with anyone you work
,TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Your receptiveness
to information offered
will make a difference.
will pay off. A contract or
settlement will change the
way you do things. Don't
overreact Consider what's
being offered, cut your
losses and move forward.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Look for a partnership
that will enhance what you
have to offer. An opportu-
nity to promote something
you have done in the past
will pay off now. Take
care of legal matters and
make a commitment that
will stabilize your future.
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Don't make changes
that are premature. Look
for opportunities, but
don't jeopardize what you
already have. Take particu-
larly good care of a part-
nership that means a lot to
you. Offer your services if
Abigail Van Buren
whom I love very much,
is a terrible gift-giver. At
Christmas and on birthdays
she gives me ridiculous
gifts clothing that doesn't
fit, jewelry I would never
wear, electronics I haven't
asked for and don't need.
Last year, she removed the
tags from everything and
didn't include receipts so
the items could be returned.
(Some were very costly.)
I have created online
wish, lists, offered Mom
"suggestions" and even
told her not to worry about
gifts. She'll take none of
my suggestions, I try to
be polite. But Mom's feel-
ings are always hurt when
I'm not "thrilled" with the
unwanted gifts, and it puts
a damper on events that
should be happy ones. I
hate her wasting money
on things that will not
be appreciated or used.
How do I handle this?
Because you have tried
being logical, helpful and
frank, and nothing has
worked, thank your mother
for her gifts and then put
them on eBay or donate
them. That way SOMEONE
THE LAST WORD.
it will seal a deal. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Do whatever it takes to
get things, going. Staying
in control will allow you to
cap the amount spent as
well as how much time you
put in. Uncertainty regard-
ing an emotional respon-
sibility will require your
undivided attention. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept
22): Work on self-improve-
ment, not trying to change
others. A chance to get
together with someone
special will open a window
of opportunity. Don't let
good fortune slip away
because you want every-
thing done your way. Win
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct
22): Problems at home will
leave you up in the air and
uncertain. Make plans to fix
anything that isn't working.
Take the initiative, do your
share and make a difference
to the outcome. If you don't
pitch in, you won't have a
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): You can argue, or
you can get things done.
Expect a friend or rela-
tive to make your life dif-
ficult if you try to avoid

can appreciate them, or you
may get enough money
back to buy yourself some- r
thing you will enjoy.
. DEAR ABBY: We have |
close friends and alternate
having dinner at each oth-
er's homes. The wife has
a couple of habits I find |
Shell run her fingers I
around the outside of a
serving dish and then lick
her finger. After dinner, I 1
always have a dish of candy |
on the table for everyone's
enjoyment But before
this woman leaves, shell ,
say she's taking some of it
home to eat later.
Am I being petty to be
annoyed by her behavior?'
WILLING TO SHARE, k
DEAR WILLING: I can
see how a dinner guest
running her finger around 1
a serving dish, then licking
her finger could gross you
out, and we both know that
rather than telling you she's
taking some of your candy
home with-her, she should
wait untilyou offer it
However, you say you arec
close friends. Thergfore Ior
assume that on some level
her positives outweigh her
negatives, or you would
have expressed how her
behavior makes you feel '
which would have, solved
your problem because you',
be seeing a lot less of her. |

22-Dec. 21): Rely on knowl-
edge and experience to
avoid making the same ,
mistake again. Getting
together with people from
your past will stir up emo-
tions and make you recon-
sider where you want to
22-Jan. 19): Secure your '
assets and reduce your lia-
bilities. Making changes to
your home, investments or
contracts will pay off. Love
is in the stars, and taking
time to nurture a relation-
ship will ensure -greater
personal stability. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Say what's on
your mind. Someone may ,
try to take advantage of 7
you, but your counteroffer,
will make it clear that you
are only willing to do so
much. Set your standard
arid stick to it ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March

and still offer something
unique. Choose your
path and stick to it until
you reach the finish line.

you do. Demonstrate,
