A man whose motorized wheelchair hit a truck
at a busy intersection Thursday morning has died
of his injuries, according to a press release from
the Lake City Police Department
James Harris, 88, of Lake City, died at Shands in
Gainesville, police said.
Harris was attempting to cross East Duval
Street at Chestnut when his wheelchair struck the
rear passenger-side tires of a flatbed tow truck at


9:55 a.m., according to police.
Police did not identify the driver of the truck or
indicate when Harris died. Calls to police officials
were not returned by press time.
Harris, who was conscious at the scene and was
believed to have suffered a broken leg, was trans-
ported by helicopter to the hospital.

dent, the press release said,

STATE


Casino

impact

hard to

predict

By GARY FINEOUT
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE -
Saying that the numbers are
"pretty squishy," a group of
Florida state economists on
Friday said they can't figure
out how much money three
new casinos could mean for
Sunshine State.
Two lawmakers have filed
bills seeking the Florida's
Legislature's approval for
massive casinos, most like-
ly in Broward and Miami-
Dade counties. The initial
measure, would require
each casino developer to
spend at least $2 billion.
State economists charged
with trying to figure out the
financial impact have spent
hours going over every-
thing from how much visi-
tors might spend to wheth-
er the casinos would 'actu-
ally attract large numbers
of new tourists to Florida.
Amy Baker, one of the main
economists crunching the
numbers, said it is "reason-
able" to suggest the mega-
casinos could yield as much
as $456 million in state and
local tax dollars over the
next five years. Economists
were charged at looking at
just how much in tax dol-
lars the casinos could yield,
not the overall economic
impact.
But that depends on
what Baker called a "very
ambitious" schedule out-
lined in the proposed leg-
islation.
The bill calls for the cre-
ation of a new statewide
gaming commission that
would evaluate and award
casino licenses. She said
any "hiccups" in construc-
tion or permitting could ren-
der the estimates wrong.
Don Langston, staff
director for the Florida
House Finance and Tax
Committee, went further
-and said the numbers were
"pretty squishy" because
they rely on so many
assumptions.

Argenziano

sues to run

for Congress

as Democrat

Formerly represented
Columbia County
in the Florida Senate.

By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Former Republican
state Sen. Nancy Argenziano challenged
a provision of Florida's new election law
that's preventing her from running for
Congress as a Democrat in
a lawsuit filed Friday.
Argenziano, also a for-
mer state public service
commissioner, is running
for the 2nd District seat
now held by U.S. Rep. Steve
Southerland, R-Panama
City. She formerly repre- Argenziano
sented Columbia County in
the Florida Senate District 3 seat now occu-
pied by Charlie Dean.
Her lawsuit challenges a requirement
for candidates to swear they had not been
a member of any other political party for
365 days before qualifying, which this year
begins June 4 and ends June 8 for fed-
eral candidates. The old law let candidates
switch parties up to six months before elec-
tion day.
The lawsuit was filed in state Circuit
Court in Tallahassee, where Argenziano
lives. It says the party switching limit vio-
lates her right of association and several
other provisions of the U.S. and Florida
constitutions.

$25,000 for food bank
The Florida Gateway Food Bank received a
check for $25,000 Friday from PotashCorp
- White Springs to be used mostly to buy food
-- of which they are in dire need -- and for opera-
tion costs. The food bank serves 38 agencies
within Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton and Union
counties. Pictured are volunteer Rob Emerson

Scott Elkins; Suzanne Edwards, COO of Catholic
Charities' Lake City Regional Office; Terry Baker,

Charities Board of Directors treasurer Lynn

Edwards said. 'It's such a needy time. People are
hungry 365 days of the year. PotashCorp stepped
up. They know the money will be put to good use.'
The food bank is in particular need of rice, beans,
peanut butter, jelly and pasta, officials said.

Judge chooses by not choosing


NEW YORK

Declaring herself unable
to choose between two
rival contestants, an
"X Factor" judge cast
her vote against Rachel
*Crow in an emotion-filled scene
Thursday that led to the young sing-
er collapsing onstage and the studio
audience booing the judge.
On the Fox network talent com-
petition, the vote was two against
Marcus Canty, 20, and one for elimi-
nating 13-year-old Rachel.
Then distraught judge Nicole
Scherzinger said she couldn't make
the painful choice between them,
explaining, "I love and adore both of
you."
Instead, she opted.to force the
decision into viewers' hands by
choosing Rachel and deadlocking
the judges' votes, two against two.
The bizarre scene triggered Rachel's
exit, since she had the lower number
of votes from viewers, and heated
discussion on social networks.
Hearing her fate, Rachel broke
down as she was comforted by her
mother, while, at the judges' panel, a
stricken Scherzinger also seemed to
come unglued.
While Rachel has been sent home,
Canty will return to the live competi-
tion next week. Scherzinger had no
immediate comment.

host Steve Jones before he announced that Crow was eliminated.

Sherwood said Friday that they have a
separate contract with HBO to consult
on a project if their book is adapted.
An HBO spokeswoman said Friday
that the network is working with
Spike Lee and Murphy on the project,
though she said it's in the early stages
of development Lee would direct the
project, and Murphy would play Barry.
Lee did not immediately respond to
requests for comment.
In 1990, during Barry's third term
as mayor, he was videotaped smoking
crack cocaine .in a hotel room during
an FBI sting operation, an episode that
drew worldwide attention. He even-
tually served six months in federal
prison ona mniisdemeanor drug posses-
sion conviction and was elected again *
to the D.C. Council in 1992. Barry won
;a fourth term as mayor in 1994. He
returned to the Council in 2004 and
continues to represent one of the city's
poorest wards.


Oswalt: Love scene with
Theron was, 'nightmare'
NEW YORK Shooting a love
scene with Charlize Theron would be
a dream come true for many actors,
but for Patton Oswalt, who co-stars
with the Oscar-winning actress in the.
new movie "Young Adult," the experi-
ence was "a nightmare."
"Why do I have to be in my under-
wear next to the most physically
perfect person .on the planet? Why
couldn't I have been next to John
Goodman or Michael Moore in their
underwear?" said Oswalt at the film's
premiere Thursday night. "It. was a
dream that turned into a nightmare."
The dramedy, which opened in
select cities Friday, stars Theron as
Mavis Gary, a boozing, delusional
author of young-adult novels who
returns to her hometown to win back
her happily married high-school
sweetheart (AP)

in her new book.
It was reported that
Hogan whose real name

the lawsuit Thursday in
Florida.

wrote that her husband
abused her during their
marriage and had homo-

Bleaching of Florida's
coral reefs has reached a

said on Friday that the most
extensive bleaching since
monitoring began in 2005
occurred this summer.
Coral thafs under stress

that live in its tissues, expos-
ing its stark white skeleton.
Bleaching makes the
coral susceptible to disease
and is a major contributor to
the decline of reefs.
The Nature

said the findings were not
surprising. Thafs because

Off to

start

One of Columbia County's
newest businesses hasn't
drawn much attention, and
that's fine with the compa-
ny's management
When Veolia
Environmental Services
began solid waste pickup in
the county Oct 1, the goal
was to make the transition
so smooth that no one would
notice.
Michael Dougherty,
regional vice president
of Veolia Environmental
Services, said everything
has gone as planned and the
company hasn't had a single
complaint
"It's great when people
don't notice a change in their
service," said. "That means
we're doing our jobs."
Veolia officials held an
open house and ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony Friday to
mark moving into their new
offices on U.S. 441, south of
Lake City limits.

and business leaders showed
up to meet Veolia managers
and tour the new administra-
tion offices that include a
large bay to provide mainte-
nance to vehicles.
"It's been a terrific start
up," Dougherty said. "We
want to celebrate being here


at the new location."
The five-year agreement
to pick up solid waste in
the county helps the com-
pany establish a strong pres-
ence in the region. Veolia
also picks up solid waste
in Ocala, Panama City and
Valdosta, Ga.


"Were looking to expand
our presence here in
Columbia County and Lake
City, he said.
The new business
employs 30 people, some
of whom were hired locally,
Dougherty said.
The company's U.S. opera-


tions are based in Milwaukee
but the world headquarters
are in Paris, Dougherty said.
The company -is ranked
among the nation's top 10
largest solid waste pickup
providers, he said.
The company's motto,
"Service first, safety always,"


is more than lip service,
Dougherty said. -
New workers were
required to take defensive

ards when vehicles are back-

other people's rights to be
able to associate with the
party they want is the first
thing that ticks me off,"
Argenziano said at a news
conference.
She also has problems
with other parts of the
Republican-sponsored law
that are being challenged
by others in federal court
in Washington under the
federal Voting Rights Act.
Opponents allege it sup-
presses minority voting by
reducing early voting days,


restricting voter registra-
tion drives and requiring
voters to cast provisional
ballots if they change out-
of-county addresses at the
polls.
"Everything is, done to
make it harder, to make
it harder for the voter to
vote, make it harder for
the candidate to switch,"
Argenziano said.
Saying she was. dis-
gusted by the GOP's right-
ward tilt, the ,moderate
Argenziano switched her


voter registration to the
tiny Independent Party
on June 3. By the time
she decided to become a
Democrat, though, it was
too late to change.
The new deadline for
the 2012 election was June
8, 2011. That was just 20
days after the law went to
into effect.
Argenziano said she'll
run under the Independent
banner next year if her law-
'suit fails but caucus with
Democrats if she's elected.

the throat and pushed her
against the car.
The woman gave a differ-
ent account.
She told the officer she
- was attempting to get her
remaining items from the


home when Baker became
irate and attacked her. She
said Baker pushed her
down and into the car, but
declined to discuss the inci-
dent further, reports say.
A witness later told
police Baker pushed the
woman, pulled her wig off,
pushed her and struck her
several times as she was
screaming and begging.

Military

sees need

for clean

energy,

Who is the single
largest user of
energy in the
United States?
Gold stars for
everybody who knows that it's
the Department of Defense.
Accordingly, the Pentagon's
progressive policy on energy
independence should.be a mat-
ter of great pride: The military
has been marching as quickly
as possible to expand its use of
clean energy.
Now the House of
Representatives is doing all it can
to block the Pentagon's invest-
ment in more efficient alterna-
tive fuels. It is an astonishingly
bad direction, and it's up to the
Senate to make it right
This isn't just a matter of being
environmentally responsible. It's
a matter of national security.
The House Armed Services
Committee earlier this year
repealed a key legislative
provision encouraging the
Department of Defense to wean
itself from oil. The provision
had been signed into law not by
President Barack Obama but
by his predecessor, President
George W. Bush. No sympa-
thizer with purely environmen-
tal causes, Bush recognized the
wisdom of having the military
research and develop clean
energy alternatives to make the
Pentagon, and by extension the
nation, more energy indepen-
dent
The Department of Defense
uses about 360,000 barrels of
oil a day, costing taxpayers
$15 billion a year. Prior to the
House's action, the Pentagon
had pledged to obtain 25
percent of its energy from
renewable sources by'2025, a
laudable goal, and committed to
investing $1.2 billion in meeting
it. No institution better under-
stands the importance of the
United States' weaning itself
from foreign oil.
The Senate should embrace
the military's initiative and
renew the U.S. commitment to
investments in cleaner fuels.

U.S. Postal Service


may be beyond saving


The other day I stuck
Sa piece of mail pay-
ing a bill in the front
door slot where it
was picked up by
the postman when he made his
daily delivery. The next day
when I went out to retrieve the
newspapers I found it soaking
wet on the walk where he had
dropped it..It was the second
time.
One would think that this
would be enough to convince
even a dinosaur like me that
perhaps one of the most irnpor-
tant institutions in the daily
lives of Americans finally had
become obsolete, at least as a
first class delivery system. But
my 20th century mindset is
ftill intact and I firmly believe a
viable, reliable postal system is
necessary that it assures the
privacy and protection that the
Internet with its enormous vul-
nerabilities doesn't
The U.S. Postal Service, of
course, is the victim of the dra-
matic evolution in communica-
tions of the last two decades.
Actually, the decay began much
earlier than email. It started
with the service's failure to
meet the competition from pri-
vate systems that stole much of
its lucrative package delivery
and then its business clients.
That loss had its roots in what
now looks like a very bad deci-


Dan K.Thomasson
sion, the privatization of the U.S.
Post Office. That now dubious
action created a convoluted two-
tiered process reliant on Big
Labor to represent the then non-
union letter carriers and others
on the front line of the delivery
system. The new service's costs
escalated exponentially, helping
to turn fledgling private delivery
companies like Fed Ex and UPS
into financial behemoths.
Well, so much for what
seemed like a good idea at the
time.
Raising the price of the first
class stamp alone after a long
series of such moves would
merely further the demise
of what is now called "snail
mail" and force millions more
Americans into online bill pay-
ing and banking. Gone soon
may be'the cards and letters of
a more literate age. While one's
Christmas or birthday or get
well cards can be created and
sent on the computer, the care
and intimacy that is explicit in
a well chosen expression isn't


quite the same.
"So what can be done about
the mountain of losses sustained
annually? It may be too late,
but Congress should first of all
move to bring the postal service
back to solvency, staving off
the inevitability of its total col-
lapse. To do that, it may have to
rescind some of the institution's
independence and be ready
to permanently subsidize its
annual budget. Obviously, that
Requires a determination that it
is worth saving and a require-
ment that its operations are
closely overseen by a committee
that puts aside partisanship to
serve the country's interests.
Both are a tall order in today's
Capitol Hill atmosphere. Letting
it succumb might be easier even'
if it is a long death rattle.
The days are gone when
the friendly mailman with his
familiar leather pouch over his
shoulder was as familiar in your
neighborhood as the cop on the
beat or your family doctor, mak-
ing house calls. It was a time
when the sound of your mail
being put in the box or through
the door was as comforting as
the early morning clank of the
milkman's bottles. Now sadly
they are all of the same disap-
pearing piece.

When the toy-buying


years are over


the young-
est is already
10 are now
beyond the "little
kid" toy range when it comes to
Christmas lists. Case in point
The youngest opened her list
this year by asking foran iPhone
4S (not a chance, honey). And
then, a page of requests later, she
closes with: "remember, this will
be a fun Christmas if everyone
gets what they would like."
I love that kid and admire her
big thinking but I found the last
line to be vaguely threatening. *
In any event, I still get all the
catalogs that the various toy
companies insist on sending my
way. They haven't given up on
me, apparently.
Well, I decided to find out
what I may be missing now that
my kids have moved on fully to
the high-end-electronics (and
makeup/clothes) years, and
talked with Adrienne O'Hara, a
spokeswoman for Toys R Us.
What are parents into this
Christmas season for, say, the
toddler-to-8-year-old set? She
told me her stores are finding
big trends toward accessories
that combine some traditional
elements with tech gadgets. For
example, the Cars 2 AppMATes
virtual raceway. Little matchbox-
style cars race around a virtual
track via Mom's or Dad's iPad.
Or the Crayola ColorStudio HD-


Betsy Hart
betsysblog.com
iMarker, which opens endless
"coloring books" on same.
My "favorite" in this combina-
tion department is one a friend
alerted me to, the Fisher-Price
Smart Cycle 3D Racer for 3- to
6-year-olds. You plug it into
the TV and interactive games
appear while the child "rides"
the connected bike, wearing his
3-D glasses, no less. Amazon.
com says about the Racer: "This
physical and' interactive learn-
ing system brings your child's
favorite characters to life as they
pedal and visit different destina-
tions that are sure to engage
your child in learning fun!"
Of course, for less than the
whole system cost you could
buy the child a bike to actually
pedal around the neighborhood.
But who does that anymore?
I'm not casting stones here.
I've got a 10-year-old asking for
the new iPhone 4S and leveling
what may constitute threats if
she doesn't get it, and toy com-
panies desperately missing my
expenditures of years past. By
the way, I literally have enough


computers/tablets in my home
that all five of us could be online
at the same time. I've lost a lot
of the battles. I'm just sayin': I
hope I could resist the "physical
and interactive learning system"
in favor of real wheels.
But then again, who am I kid-
ding?
Ahh, and then I came across
this little nugget www.toygaroo.
com. A new online toy company
that operates a lot like Netflix.
Depending on your monthly plan,
four to eight toys appear every
30 to 60 days for a flat rental fee.
You can put a boatload of toys
under the tree for a relatively
reasonable price, and when the
kids get tired of them the toys go
back and a new round of gently
used (and sanitized!) playthings
appears. If your child likes any
toy in particular, you can buy it at
a discounted price.
This seems like a huge leap
forward for those in the toy-
buying Christmas years. It's so
simple, it's brilliant But where
exactly was this idea when I was
looking for volume on Christmas
morning? Sigh. If I'd had such
a thing then, I might have been
able to put some money aside for
what I only now know were the
looming high-tech years.
But then again, who am I kid-
ding?

ANOTHER
VIEW



Obama's


Israel


problem


The Obama White
House claims to
have done more
for Israel's secu-
rity than any in
history. If that were the case,
President Obama would not
have to continually defend his
shaky record.
"I try not to pat myself too
much on the back," Mr. Obama
told the audience at a Jewish-
American fundraiser last week,
"but this administration has
done more for the security of
the state of Israel than any previ-
ous administration." Presidents
should always steer away from
superlatives, but this claim is
self-evidently absurd. Has he
done more for Israel than Harry
Truman, who helped lead the
drive in the United Nations for
recognition of Israel's state-
hood? Has he done more than
Richard Nixon, who mounted
Operation Nickel Grass to
resupply Israel during the 1973
Yom Kippur War and who
materially contributed to Israel's
victory? Has he done more than
Ronald Reagan, who granted
Israel the status of major non-
NATO ally and made Israel the
largest recipient of U.S. military
assistance in the world? Those
presidents offered deeds, while
Mr. Obama has only words, and
usually the wrong ones.
Mr. Obama contrasts most
starkly with Jimmy Carter. Mr.
Carter hasn't been a friend to
Israel since leaving the White
House, but he brokered the
1978 Camp David accords,
the single most important
diplomatic effort of any U.S.
president respecting Israel.
Under the accords and the
subsequent Egypt-Israel Peace
Treaty, Egypt became the first
Arab state to recognize Israel.
The peace agreement removed
Egypt from any potential coali-
tion of Arab states .contemplat-
ing renewed war with Israel
and in fact ended the conven-
tional military threat. It earned
Anwar Sadat, president of
Egypt, and Menachem Begin,
prime minister of Israel, the
Nobel Peace Prize.
Mr. Obama, a fellow Nobel
laureate, is undoing that his-
toric achievement He backed
the removal of Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak, who
had kept faith with the peace
agreement for 30 years after
the assassination of Sadat in
1981. Mr. Obama supports
the political aspirations of the
Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood,
which will seek to discard the
peace treaty with Israel at the
first opportunity. Far from
doing the most to secure Israel
of any president, he may be
doing the most to resurrect
the specter of conflict with
Egypt
Mr. Obama has a lot of
explaining to do to American
supporters of Israel, whether
Jewish or gentile. He backed
away from his 2008 campaign
pledge that "Jerusalem will
remain the capital of Israel,
and it must remain undivided,"
by defining Israeli construction
in East Jerusalem as "settle-
ments," affirming Palestinian
claims on that part of the
city. He created a firestorm
of controversy in May when
he emphasized that the 1967
borders (the 1949 cease-fire
line) or, as a former Israeli
ambassador to the United
States called it, the "Auschwitz
border" would have to be the
starting point for any future
peace agreement.
Instead of patting himself on
the back, Mr. Obama should


come up with a list of tangible
things he has done to ensure
the security of Israel. It would
be an extremely short list

Remember the Cross not the Manger


Dr. M. R. DeHaan told
this imaginary story.
"Everybody was having
a wonderful time playing
games, singing, eating cake and ice cream,
and drinking pink lemonade. It was one
grand party and the guests had lost all
sense of time as the party lasted far into
the night A caller knocked at the door and
asked, 'What's all the celebration about?
Why all the gaiety and'fun?' 'We are having
a birthday party!' was the reply. 'Birthday
party?' said the called. 'Whose birthday are
you celebrating?' "The birthday of Jimmy
Jones. He's your own boy, Jimmy-it's his
birthday,' said the host. 'Yes, I know, but.
do you know where Jimmy is?' asked the
father. 'I don't see him anywhere.'
Then it dawned upon the celebrating
group that Jimmy was missing. In fact, he


hadn't been there at all, for BIBLE STUI
he was at home sick in bed.
No one had missed him, '
for everybody was having a
good time at Jimmy's birth-
day party without Jimmy." J
Now that sounds silly, '
doesn't it? In fact, its
ridiculous! There is another
birthday party which is
not only silly but serious. Hugh SI
This is the season when ems-hdgh43@cc
Christendom will stage the
greatest celebration of the
year. It will be a commemoration of the
birthday of Jesus Christ! But in the great .
majority of gay parties the Guest of Honor
is nowhere to be found. Instead of honor-
ing the advent of this Man, the present-day
demonstrations of Christmas are a disgrace
to the One of whom it was said, "Thou shalt

h
rom


IES call his name JESUS; for he
shall save his people from
their sins" (Matt 1:21). We
have forgotten why He was
born. He came to die, to
give His life a ransom for
sinners. The birth of Christ
is not the important event
in the story of this Man.
His birth was a necessary
errill Jr. incident to prepare Him for
cost.net His substitutionary death
on the cross, but to stay at
the manger is an insult to
Christ We therefore call upon you who are
Christians to rally at the cross this Advent
Season, and leave the giddy crowd to dance
about the manger.
May the coming weeks be a time of
meditation and worship at Calvary, and may
we refuse to carry on with the world which


celebrates a Christmas without Christ Let
us make this Christmas season the occasion
for remembering not His "birth" first of all,
but His death; not His birthday, but HIM.
Let us consider a fact we should know,
but never seem to remember as we
* should in this season. If we would really
realize the treatment He (Jesus) received
at the hands of sinners, every Christmas
celebration would cease, the music would
stop, the dancing would stop, a holy hush
would settle upon the crowds. We would
bow in shame and remorse at the sight of
the One born as a babe in a manger, but
who hung on a cross between two thieves.
Please remember He died that we
might-live!

An unforgettable moment


twenty years ago, it was one of
the most unforgettable things
I had ever witnessed. It was
a Sunday morning, and the
church my husband and I attended intro-
duced a guest speaker, obviously well loved
by many in the church. We were fairly new
members, though, and to be honest, I was
a little disappointed that our regular pastor
would notbe bringing the message. That
changed quickly when our guest began to
speak. Suddenly, he had my full attention.
Probably somewhere in his 70's, this very
soft-spoken man began to preach, holding
his Bible with one hand and using his other
hand to hold one eye open so that he could
see to read the words. Later we learned
that he suffered from a condition affecting
the nerves that left both eyes unable to stay
open. It was difficult to watch his struggle,
and I couldn't help but wonder why he kept
preaching.. .surely at his age and with this
condition, no one would blame him for giv-
ing it'up.
Through the years, this man became a


dear family friend. After HEART MA
getting to know him, I can
assure you he had nothing
to prove. Near the end of
WWII, he became a pilot in
the US Air Force, and later
served as a missionary
in Germany; served as a
pastor for countless years,
and in countless ministry
capacities. To this day, in Angie L
his 90's, he still serves angieland3@win
by teaching Bible studies
in his community. If you
met him today, he wouldn't mention any
of these things; instead, he would tell you
about how much Jesus loves you.
Looking back on it now, I believe I was
the one suffering with the vision condition
that morning. I'm convinced the problem
affecting my eyes was pride, and sadly,
we all suffer with it on occasion. We
judge based on what we see, and think,
"I would never put myself in this or that
situation!" We worry about how others
see us and whether they will think us suc-

TERS cessful or valuable, even
to the point that we boast
and brag over accomplish-
Sments or possessions. The
irony is the more we try
to convince others of our
worth, the more we reveal
our own insecurity! What
I missed years ago is so
obvious to me now.. .he
ind preached, even in his hum-
stream.net bling condition, because
his life is about bringing
glory to God, not himself.
In contrast to my friend, one of the
clearest examples of how pride can
destroy a person is found in the book of
Daniel, concerning the king of Babylon,
Nebuchadnezzar. Listen to his words:
"Is not this the great Babylon I have built
as the royal residence, by my mighty
power and for the glory of my majesty?"
(Daniel 4:30) Can you count the "I's" and
the "my's?" Clearly, it was all about him.
(Keep reading the rest of chapter four to
get a good idea of how impressed God


was with King Nebuchadnezzar!) The
ironic 'thing was, He had been warned
exactly one year earlier to renounce his
sin and acknowledge God. Sadly, some of
us insist on learning the hard way!
In light of this, Proverbs 27:2 is a very
short verse that has a very big message:
"Let another praise you, and not your own
mouth; someone else and not your own
'lips." Drawing from the two lives we
have looked at today, it seems that if we
insist on singing our own praises, others
will be discussing our downfall. A better
idea is to glorify God and let others tell of
your good deeds...because every heart
matters!

Blessings, Angie

DEAR.ABBY


Woman questions future

with unaffectionate man


DEAR ABBY: I am 28
and have dated my boy-
friend "Dan" for two years.
We have lived together for
the past year. I fell for him
the moment I laid eyes on
him and have always imag-
ined we would spend the
rest of our lives together.
My problem is Dan
shows me almost no affec-
tion. He doesn't tell me
he loves me unless I say
it first; he never wants to
cuddle next to me or hug
me when he gets home
from work. He insists that
he loves me, and says his
lack of demonstrative-
ness is because he didn't
grow up in an affectionate
household and it makes
him uncomfortable.
I feel Dan is an adult
and can choose to make
his household our house-
hold one filled with love
and affection. It's start-
ing to make me question
whether we really have a
future together. Am I over-
reacting? NO HUGS, NO
CUDDLES IN PHILLY
DEAR NO HUGS, NO
CUDDLES: No. You're
an intelligent woman, and
you're asking intelligent
questions. Before mak-
ing up your mind about
Dan, make clear to him
what your needs are.
Demonstrate the kind of
affection you need from
him, and see if he's willing
to make the effort. If he's
not up to it, then face it
- he's not the man for you.


BABY BLUES


Abigail Van Buren
w~w.deorabby.com

DEAR ABBY: I am a car-
ing, loving husband. I enjoy
my time with my wife. I
think about our future a lot
and want our marriage to
last for as long as possible.
I make exercise a prior-
ity in my life, but I can't
get her to understand that
she should, too. I love her
for who she is, but I want
her to be in great health.
I am a very straight-
forward person and have
told her in ways she didn't
respond well to. She
becomes defensive. How
do you tell a woman she
should exercise without
offending her? FIT IN
AKRON, OHIO
DEAR FIT: Talk to her
about the couples you
encounter who exercise
together. Tell her how
much it would mean to
you if you could share the
activity together. If your
form of exercise isn't one
that works for her, then
find something you can
agree on to do together.
If that doesn't help, then
you'll have to accept her
for who she is a con-
firmed couch potato.


HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Take charge of your
life and your future. You
can secure your position if
you discuss what you want
to see happen in the new
year. Don't worry about
someone who opposes
your choices. You cannot
please everyone. Put you
first. ****
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Don't let the past ruin
your day. Put bad memo-
ries to rest and plan to
move forward with great
hope. Friends will sup-
port you, regardless of the
choice you make. Romance
is highlighted, and socializ-
ing will enhance your love
life. ***
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You'll be eager to fit
a4 much as possible into
your day. Proceed with
caution. Overdoing it will
lead to minor mishaps
that will make you wish
you had slowed down and
been more careful. Strive
for quality, not quantity.

CANCER (June 21-July
22): Someone may say
something behind your
back. Don't be too eager to
find out what's going on,
or you may ruin a surprise.
Focus on what you can do
for the ones you love and
how you can help a cause
you believe in. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Opportunity knocks. Get


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

out to functions that will
let you network and make
new friends. Socializing
will help bring about the
changes you want to incor-
porate into your life in the
new year. Use your imagi-
nation and your intuition.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept
22): You'll have to rely on
what and whom you know
in order to get things done
properly. A problem at
home will lead to emotion-
al setbacks and potential
disagreements. Listen to
complaints and consider
how to fix whats broken.
**
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Plan a trip or engage
in a conversation with
someone who has infor-
mation you need. Avoid
getting into a vulnerable
position due to where you
are or whom you are deal-
ing with. Watch your back
and stay focused on what's
important. *****
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov.
21): Mix business with plea-
sure to get ahead. Attending
a party that includes co-
workers or an industry
event that allows you to
mingle with the competition
will lead to an interesting
proposition. Romance is in
the stars. ***


SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Don't take
on a challenge that can
lead to a confrontation.
Travel should be kept'to a
minimum, and partnership
problems should be left
alone until you've had time
to thoroughly think things,
through. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Offer help
to an organization that
has helped you in the
past. Your kindness will
enhance your reputation.
Money matters concerning
someone you love should
be taken care of swiftly.
Don't leave anything to
chance. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Invite friends
over or make plans to alter
your living arrangements
to better suit your needs.
Your quick response to
someone offering you
something will pay off. The
possibilities are endless
if you take one step at a
time. *****
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Gravitate toward the
people you know you can
trust. Avoid a big talker
trying to grab your atten-
tion and your money. Don't
give in to someone with a
sob story. It's not up to you
to take on responsibilities
that don't belong to you.

** ** **
DEAR ABBY: I live in
Japan and love your col-
umn. It is informative and
helps me stay in touch with
America. But I need to get
something off my chest.
I am beyond tired of the
number of women I read
about in your column who
refer to their wedding day
as "my special day." News
flash, ladies: You should
be using the term "OUR
special day"! Ifyou're so
focused on your dress
and hair and any faux, pas
- real or imagined your
guests may commit that
you lose focus on the life
you and your husband are-
beginning, perhaps you
should buy a pet rather
than get married.- ROB IN
TOMAKOMAI
DEAR ROB: Weddings
(and funerals) can bring out
the worst in people because
they are times when emo-
tion sometimes trumps
common sense. The major-
ity of American brides are
gracious, polite, loving and
hardworking. They are also
prepared for the realities
that come after the fairy tale
wedding. (And if they're not,
I hear from them!) Please
don't judge all American
brides by the ones you read
about in my column. The :
weddings that go smoothly I
don't hear about
I Write Dear Abby at

Strong district start


CHS knocks off -
Robert E. Lee,
43-39, Friday.

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Afterknocking Columbia
High out of the district
tournament last year,
Lee High had a whipping
coming but the Generals
again played tough on the
Tigers' home court.
. Columbia came back
from a nine-point deficit at
the half to beat Lee, 43-39,
in the District 4-6A opener
for the Tigers.
Marcus Amerson led
the comeback charge with
seven of his team-high 16
points in the third quarter,
as CHS changed tactics.
"The only adjustment we
made was to pound the ball
inside," CHS head coach
Horace Jdfferson said. "I
don't think we made a jump
shot in the first half. Marcus
played extremely well and
(Morris) Marshall did too."
Columbia closed the gap
to one point by the end
of the third quarter and
finally took a 33-32 lead
with 5:09 to play. Amerson
added five more points in
the fourth quarter. Late
in the quarter he served
up an alley-oop pass to
Marshall,, who turned it
into a thunderdunk to
punctuate the win.
Marshall, who finished
with 11 points, grabbed
an offensive rebound on


a missed free throw and
made his own free throw
in the closing seconds to
keep a four-point cushion
for the Tigers.
Laremy Tunsil helped
the inside game with four
of his six points in the
fourth quarter.
Nigel Atkinson and
Javonta6 Foster each
scored three points, while
Tre' Simmons and Monte
Tisdale both scored two.
Darius Harper led Lee
(1-6, 0-5) with 17 points.
"They could easily
have rolled over, but they
worked hard and perse-
vered," Jefferson said.
Columbia (4-1, 1-0) will
need that effort when they
travel to Wolfson High for
a 7:30 p.m. district game
today.
The Lady Tigers could
never get started in the
opening game and got hit
with a running clock with
5:37 to play. in the third
quarter. Lee polished off a
52-28 win.-
Stella Harris scored
10 points for Columbia, fol-
lowed by Justice Campbell
with six points, Lona Wilson
andAmereannaBryanteach
with four, Ranicka Givens
with three, and Stephanie
Silva with one.
Kandyce Taylor (15)
and Jocelyn Pringle (11)
hit double figures for Lee
(4-6, 3-1).
The Lady Tigers (2-4,
0-2) play Melody Christian
Academy at 6 p.m. Monday
ih Live Oak.

FFloridaROM THE SIDELINEoff without Weis
Flo'r ida better off wtout Weis,,


Phone: (386) 754-0420
bflrney@)akecityreporter.com

F lorida has been
amidst a series
of changes
recently with
its football
program.
First, it was head coach
Urban Meyer bolting from
the program only to return
and then eventually exit
the following season. Will
Muschamp took the reins
and brought in Charlie
Weis, a coordinator with
head coaching experience,
but after only one season
Weis has bolted as well.
There should be no
reason for panic in the
Gator Nation. Florida is
cutting the fat in more
ways than one.


In onelseaS0n, Weis'
offense didn't exactly set
the SEC on fire. In fact,
there aren't many kind
words that can be used to
describe what Florida's
offense put on the field
this season. The kindest
word that comes to my
mind is putrid.
Weis brought in
NFL experience, but
unfortunately it didn't
translate into success.
While Florida fans
had much dismay for
former Meyer offensive
coordinator Steve Addazio,
under Weis' control the
offense actually fared
worse.
Florida averaged less
than 26 points per game
and 334 yards per contest.
In Addazio's last season,
Florida averaged 29.8
points and 350 yards per
game.
Muschamp's next hire is
a crucial one. At a time in
recruiting where players


need to feel comfortable
with a program, it's
important that Muschamp
brings in the right hire.
And the most important
factor of the hire is
stability.
The program needs a
leader on the offensive
side of the ball with
ties to the program and
someone that players can
feel comfortable about
The coaching staff has
become a rotating door
over the past few seasons
and it's hard to maintain
the level of a play that
Florida has come to
expect with so much
turnover throughout the
staff.
For the perfect
candidate, Muschamp
won't have to look far.
Kerwin Bell is the guy
that should lead the short
list He's got experience
on all three levels, having
coached in the Canadian
Football League, and at


Ocala Trinity Catholic and
Jacksonville University.
His offense is the wide-
open style that Florida
fans covet He's won
a state championship
in Florida and that will
help in recruiting. He's
turned Jacksonville's non-
scholarship program into
a contender. And the most


important factor about Bell
is he's a former Gator.
This wouldn't be a
steppingstone for Bell.
This is the kind of coach
that could be with the
program for the long haul.
He could provide stability
and that's something
that's much needed in the
program at this point.
