Robbery ends in chase, arrest


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
An armed man who reportedly robbed
a pizzeria led police on a high-speed chase
before authorities disabled his vehicle and
took him into custody Friday night
Arrested was James Edward Roberson,
27, of Tennessee.
Roberson entered the Little Caesars
restaurant at 363 SW Baya Drive Friday
night and demanded money after display-


ing a weapon, according to Capt. John
Blanchard, Lake City Police Department
public information officer.
Roberson then fled and the employees
called police department with a partial Lake
City Police Department Lt John Stock spot-
ted Roberson's vehicle at an S&S conve-
nience store near Columbia High School
and waited for other units to arrive.
A traffic stop was attempted when
Roberson left the store but he fled, police
said.


"The reason we didn't try to make
contact him in the [S&S] parking lot
was because there was lots of bystanders
around," Blanchard. "He was an armed
robbery suspect and we didn't want to cre-
ate a dangerous situation for bystanders."
LCPD officers began pursuitand Columbia
County Sheriffs deputies joined in.
The pursuit was turned over to the sher-
iff's office when Roberson reached State
Road 100. As Roberson entered the intersec-
tion of U.S. 441 and Interstate 10 a deputy


used a PIT maneuver, causing the suspect
to lose control of his car. The suspect was
arrested without further incident
Authorities have not yet listed the charg-
es in the case.
'We're still at the scene," Blanchard said
during a telephone interview shortly after
9 p.m. "We have to process the vehicle and
ifs going to take a while. The vehicle was
pitted and it's off in the woods."
No one was injured in the robbery
attempt or subsequent car chase.


State


jobless

decline

Columbia County
unemployment
edges up slightly.

By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE
Florida's unemployment fell to its lowest
mark in 31 months in November but 10
percent of the workforce remained job-
less, state labor officials said Friday.
In Columbia County the jobless rate
rose to 9.9 percent, up from 9.7 percent
in October.
The November numbers reflected a
decrease of four-tenths of a percentage
point from October's revised 10.4 per-
cept unemployment figure. Although
November's 10 percent was the state's
lowest since May 2009,. it remained well
above the national average of 8.6 percent
unemployment

No early


learning


funds for


Florida

By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott said
the federal government rejected Florida's
bid for a $100 million early learning grant
Friday because he wouldn't accept the
money if there were "strings attached."
Scoring sheets released by the U.S.
Education and Health and Human
Services departments, though, indicated
many other factors also combined to
doom the bid.
The Republican governor said the state
was asked for a commitment of state
dollars to maintain the effort to benefit
at-risk children after the federal money
runs out and for adoption of "burden-
some regulations on private providers."
"We stuck to our principles, and unfor-
tunately our insistence against irrespon-
sibly using one-time dollars for recurring
government programs did not win favor
of the administration in Washington,"
Scott said.

administration announced nine states

All for Andrew
ABOVE: Pamela Holmes (left), 12, gets emotional when a check
for $6,216 70 was presented to her family during the annual Lake.
City Middle School Holiday Assembly on Friday. The money was
raised through various fundraisers and donations for Andrew Holmes,
Pamela's brother, who is in his third bout with leukemia after three
years of treatment. Pictured are Pamela Holmes (from left), LCMS
assistant principal Sean Adams, principal Sonya Judkins and assis-
tant principal Meg Haley. RIGHT: Holmes laughs as LCMS guidance
counselor Joey Giberti (right) makes her 'pinkie promise' not to tell
her the amount of money raised. Giberti plans to surprise the family
with the check for $6,216.70 when he visits them in the hospital on
Sunday. 'This is unbelievable,' Holmes said. 'I knew they raised a lot,
but I had no idea.'

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS



Blues legend James terminally ill


RIVERSIDE, Calif. "At Last"
and 'Tell Mama" blues singer Etta
James, whose health has been fading
in recent years, is now terminally ill,
*,and her live-in doctor is asking for
-prayers.
Dr. Elaine James, who isn't related
-to the 73-year-old entertainer, tells
the Riverside Press-Enterprise
(http://bit.ly/tVMtaN) that the
singer's chronic leu-
kemia was declared
incurable two weeks
Sago.
The doctor has
cared for Etta James ,
at the singer's
Riverside, Calif., area
home since March
2010. James
Elaine James says
she's spreading word of the singer's
ailments so people will pray for her.
She says fans know Etta James has
been sick "but'not how sick."
Court records in the singer's pro-
bate case show she also suffers from
dementia and kidney failure.
Elaine James made her comments
outside a Riverside conservatorship
hearing over the singer's $1 mil-
lion estate. The singer's son, Donto
James, wants a conservator rather
than the singer's husband, Artis
Mills.

Hitchens, author of 'God
Is Not Great' dies at 62
i-.- .
Cancer weakened but did not
soften Christopher. Hitchens. He did
not repent or forgive or ask for pity.
As if granted diplomatic immunity,
his mind's eye looked plainly upon
the attack and counterattack of dis-
ease and treatments that robbed him
of his hair, his stamina, his speaking
voice and eventually his life.
"I love the imagery of struggle,"


he wrote about his illness in an
August 2010 essay in Vanity Fair. "I
sometimes wish I were suffering in a
good cause, or risking my life for the
good of others, instead of just being
a gravely endangered patient."
Hitchens, a Washington, D.C.-
based author, essayist and polemicist
who waged verbal and occasional
physical battle on behalf of causes
left and right, died Thursday night
at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
in Houston of pneumonia, a com-
plication of his esophageal cancer,
according to a statement from Vanity
Fair magazine. He was 62.
"There will never be, another like
Christopher. A man of ferocious
intellect, who was as vibrant on
the page as he was at the bar," said
Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter.
"Those who read him felt they knew
him, and those who knew him were
profoundly fortunate souls."
He had enjoyed his drink (enough
to "to kill or stun the average mule")
and cigarettes, until he announced in
June 2010 that he was being treated
for cancer of the esophagus.

Bieber stages show
at Las Vegas school
LAS VEGAS It was clear'at one
Las Vegas school Friday morning
that the mid-De-
cember chill wasn't
cooling down Bieber
fever.
Secondi-grader
A'mya.,Saulsberry
and third-grader Mia
Godinez were wear-
ing glittery red hair
bows and T-shirts Bieber
emblazoned with
teen pop icon Justin Bieber's face as
they walked with their grandma to
Whitney Elementary School, where


Bieber was set to perform a private
Christmas concert in the afternoon.
"When he noticed how kind we
were and how gentle we were,
he wanted to come," Godinez
explained, as a Bieber ballad fit for
a sixth-grade slow dance piped from
campus loudspeakers toward the
run-down apartment complexes in
the neighborhood.
The 17-year-old star's concert
came along with a $100,000 dona-
tion to' Whitney Elementary, which
has garnered publicity for provid-.
ing needy students' families with
food, clothes, money for utility
bills and just about everything in
between.
After Bieber announced on a Nov.
1 episode of 'The Ellen Degeneres
Show" that he would visit to per-
form songs from his album "Under
the Mistletoe," the hundreds of
students watching the taping from
their Las Vegas school erupted
into screams and cheers. One girl
is seen jumping up and down, and
school officials said some of the stu-
dents burst into tears of joy.

King succeeds in gaining
money for heating oil
BANGOR, Maine Horror 'author
Stephen King's efforts to raise
money to help low-income Maine
residents pay their heating oil bills
this winter have exceeded goals.
King announced last month that
his foundation would match up *
to $70,000 if listeners of the three
Bangor-area radio stations he owns
donated that amount, for a total of
$140,000.
Listeners donated $24,000, the
Lerner Foundation pitched in
$46,000 and the foundation kept its
promise.

West compares
Dems to Nazis
WEST PALM BEACH -
A Florida congressman is
drawing criticism for com-
paring Democrats' efforts
on shifting public opinion
to those of a Nazi propa-
gandist
Rep.
Allen
West said
Thursday
that "If
Joseph
Goebbels
was around,
he'd be West
very proud"
of Democrats "because
they have an incredible
propaganda machine."
Goebbels was Adolf
Hitler's propaganda min-
ister. West was respond-
ing to a question about


low approval ratings for
Congress and the blame
' the public has centered on
Republicans.
The comment was first
reported by Politico. It's
generating controversy in
South Florida, which West
represents and which has
a significant population of
Holocaust survivors.
A spokeswoman for the
Republican says.the ways

Authorities say a 40-year-
old man killed his father
and buried him in their
yard north of Tampa.
The Hernando County
Sheriffs Office reported
Friday that Christopher
Burke has confessed to
killing his 61-year-old
father, Raymond Burke,
and burying him in the
yard of their home in
Brooksville.
Christopher Burke was
arrested Thursday and
initially charged with sec-
ond-degree murder. The
sheriffs office was in the
process of exhuming the
body. No attorney informa-
tion for Christopher Burke
was available.
No further details were
immediately released.
Brooksville is about 60

Shooter of deputy
dies in hospital
PENSACOLA A man
who shot and wounded a
Panhandle deputy has died
after being treated for near-
ly a week in the hospital for
wounds he sustained in a
gun battle with law officers.
An autopsy for
Christopher Lewis was
scheduled for Thursday
afternoon.
Lewis shot Okaloosa

Irene was storm,
not NJ. hurricane
MIAMI Forecasters ,
at the National Hurricane
Center now say Hurricane
Irene was only a tropical
storm when it made landfall
in New Jersey in August
Irene was a Category 1
hurricane when it made
landfall Aug.27 in North ,
Carolina. The storm made
landfall again Aug. 28 near
Atlantic City, NJ., where
forecasters had said it.was
a hurricane with 75 mph
winds.
However, after review-
ing their data, forecasters
have determined that
Irene had weakened to a
tropical storm with winds
around 69 mph when it
crossed New Jersey's coast
Hurricanes have top winds
of at least 74 mph.
"It's a very small
change," said Eric Blake,
a hurricane specialist at
the hurricane center. 'The
difference residents would
see is about the same.
There's no perceivable dif-
ference."
Forecasters posted their
report on Irene on Friday.
The hurricane center occa-
sionally upgrades or down-
grades tropical storms as it
reviews storm data at the
end of the six-month hur-
ricane season. In Irene's
case, a review of the data
supported downgrading the
storm at the time it hit New
Jersey, Blake said.
"Five-knot changes like
that happen all the time. At
this time, it just happened
near land," Blake said.

2 hurt in crash

From staff reports
A Lake City woman suffered serious injuries in a
Wednesday crash, according to a report released yester-
day by the Florida Highway Patrol.
Stephanie Lynn Sherrod, 25, was transported to
Shands at the University of Florida for treatment, reports
show.
The other driver, Nicole Marie Brown, 36, Lake City,
was treated for minor injuries at Lake City Medical
Center.
Sherrod, traveling west on Brim Street shortly before
6 p.m., failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection
of Dekle Road and struck the right front of Brown's 1997
Nissan pickup, FHP said.
Sherrod, who was not wearing a seat belt, was par-
tially ejected from her 1996 GMC pickup, according to
reports.
A photo of Sherrod being prepped for transport by
helicopter appeared in Thursday's Lake City Reporter,
but no information on the accident was then available.

FUNDS: 'Strings attached'

Continued From Page 1A


Top stimulus funding, Florida was not
among them. Florida ranked 19th out of
37 applicants, including the District of
Columbia and Puerto Rico.
Florida received low marks for articulat-
ing the rationale for its agenda and goals,
statewide coordination, access to high-
quality progress, effective use of assess-
ment systems, statewide standards and
a common statewide quality-rating and
improvement system.
Scott's stance, though, disappointed
advocates of early learning.
"The money would have allowed our
state to take a lot of disconnected parts
in early learning and connect them," said
Suzanne Gellens, executive director of
the Tampa-based Florida Association for
the Education of Young Children. "I don't
know that there was anything that would
be burdensome to private providers."
Her organization's 3,800 members
include faith-based and other private pro-
viders, public school teachers, agency
heads and academics.
The grant would have provided many free
services to providers but now "nobody'll
be paying for them;" she said.
Florida Senate Democratic Leader Nan
Rich, one of the Legislature's strongest
backers of early learning, also disputed
Scott's claim of burdensome regulations.
"That's a catch phrase for everything
with this administration," the Weston law-
maker said.
The state Office of Early Learning want-
ed the grant to partner with private busi-
nesses in programs for high-risk children.
States had to demonstrate a commitment
to making early learning programs more
accessible, coordinated and effective.
The grant money would have paid for
much needed testing of children when
they begin and finish preschool to deter-
-mine their progress before entering kin-
dergarten and to assess the quality of early
learning programs, Rich said.
"We are disappointed the governor's
budget targets K-12, which needs it, but
so does early learning," Gellens said. She
said recent spending cuts are putting some
providers out of.buminess.
Scott noted that last week he asked for a
$1 billion increase for education in his bud-


get request to the Legislature for the fiscal
year beginning July 1. Before the 2011
legislative session, though, Scott proposed
deep cuts in education spending as part of
his drive to reduce taxes in the belief that
that would kick-start Florida's economy
and create jobs.
"' Creating a world-class education system
that prepares students for the workforce is
my top priority," he said Friday. But he
added, "We will accomplish this goal ...
without sacrificing responsible spending."
Rich, though, said it's "disingenuous"
for Scott to claim he's proposing a $1 bil-
lion increase when schools are losing $634
million next year due to expiring federal
stimulus and jobs bill funds while adding
30,000 new students.
"The bottom line is that you cut $1.35
billion last'year," she said. "So this billion
doesn't even come close to replacing what
you cut last year."
Rich said it's just another example of
Florida essentially giving away federal
money to other states.
"We have a consistent pattern here of
saying that we're not going to accept
federal money because of one reason or
another and the money goes to other
states," she said. '
Scott similarly cited worries that too
much state funding would be needed to
build and run a high-speed rail line between
Tampa and Orlando when he rejected $2.4
billion in federal funds for that project,
killing it The money then went to similar
projects in other states.
The early learning grant winners
are California, Delaware, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Minnesota, North
Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island and
Washington.
Last year, before Scott took office,
Florida received a $700 million Race to
the Top grant for public schools. A key
feature of that program is teacher merit
pay linked to student performance, an idea
long supported by many Republicans.
Florida initially had been turned down
largely due to a lack of teacher support,
but the state won in a second round of
grant approvals. That was after then-Gov.
Charlie Crist spearheaded efforts to bring
teachers unions into the process.

was largely good news
for Florida's Republican
Gov. Rick Scott. The self-
described "jobs governor"
said 120,000 new jobs have
been added in Florida since
he took office in January
and that unemployment
has fallen by 2 percent-
age points in the last 11
months. However, 926,000
Floridians are still trying to
find a job.
"Florida is moving in the
right direction," said Scott,
who returned Thursday
from .a weeklong- trip to
Israel that politicians offi-
cially described as trade
missions, adding that his
policies of streamlining
government and eliminat-
ing regulations that he
believes burden businesses
are working.
Friday's report showed
that 12,300 government


. jobs, federal, state and local,
have been eliminated in
Florida this year although
that represents just 1.1 per-
cent of the total in that sec-
tor. However, many of the'
counties with the lowest
unemployment were those
with relatively high propor-'
tions of government jobs.
The trade, transporta-
tion and utilities sector
has added the most jobs
in Florida this year, 35,900.
Another 32,700 have been
added in private education
and health services.
Scott campaigned on
creating some 700,000
new jobs over a seven-year
period assuming he'd win
re-election in 2014. Since
taking office in January,
the Republican governor
has seen nearly 107,000
new jobs created in the
private sector while gov-

ernment jobs continue to

Monroe County (Key

workforce sidelined, while
Hendry County in south-
west Florida had the high-
est at 15.1 percent.
Thirty-two Florida
counties reported double-
digit unemployment in

Nanny


State


calling


The Nanny State is
wagging its finger
at us again. This
time it's the National
Transportation Safety
Board, which wants to ban all
use of cellphones by drivers
even the "hands-free" kind that
are increasingly popular sup-
posedly to cut down on traffic
accidents. Many new cars even
come with Bluetooth devices that
automatically interface with your
phone, allowing you to talk to a
voice seemingly inside the car.
In California, using a phone
with your hands while driving
already is illegal, as is texting.
When the handheld phone ban
was passed in 2006, we were
advised that the safest thing
to do would be to use a hands-
free device. This year, the state
Legislature passed Senate Bill
28, by state Sen. Joe. Simitian, D-
Palo Alto, which increased fines
for a first offense to $50 from
$20. Sensibly, it was vetoed by
Gov. Jerry Brown. He wrote in
his veto message, "For people
of ordinary means, current fines
and penalty assessments should
be sufficient deterrent"
Now, according to the NTSB,
even using a hands-free device
isn't good enough. "I'his is a
ridiculous Nanny State thing,"
* Marc Scribner told us; he's a
transportation policy analyst
with the Competitive Enterprise
Institute, a free-market think
tank. He said the device used
isn't the problem, but the ele-
ment of distraction to the driver.
He said a total ban on drivers
using phones would be difficult
to enforce. How could a police
officer tell if the person was talk-
ing with a hands-free device,
singing to a tune on the radio or
conversing with a passenger?
Although the safety board's
nonbinding recommendation
can be rejected by the states,
Nanny can creep up on us.
If we're not careful, a federal
mandate might hitch federal
highway funds to total bans
on, phone use. Meanwhile,
California should not act on this
recommendation. This time,
let's leave Nanny at home.

Thank U.S. troops, notably


wounded warriors


J am from a military family
my father was career
Air Force and many
in my immediate and
extended family have
been or continue in military
service.
So perhaps I carry height-
ened sensitivities to the unique
realities and challenges of mili-
tary life.
, With the U.S. military's with-
drawal from Iraq, our troops
- and the importance of nation-
ally acknowledging their service
and sacrifice were already on
my mind when I arrived for a
meeting in the office of Rep.
Allen West, R-Fla.
There, by chance, I met a
woman I'll call Lt. Col. Sam.
Sam is in her 24th year of
active duty in the U.S. Army.
She served in Desert Storm and
returned to Iraq in 2008.
Now she is in the Warrior
Care and Transition Program,
set up by the Army to provide
a framework for quality care
and transition for the growing
numbers of returning wounded
veterans.
One aspect of the program
is work, and Sam chose to do
staff work for West. It's a logi-
cal fit in that West himself is a
retired Army lieutenant colonel
and combat veteran. Beyond
this, Sam's interest is in Westfs

position on the House Armed
Services Committee.
Her passion "to serve this
country" burns as strongly
today as it did 24 years ago. She,
says she would return to the
field of battle "in a heartbeat."
It is heartening to encounter
patriots such as Sam, with her
indomitable spirit.
But every veteran no matter
how focused and tough he or
she appears needs acknowl-
edgement and thanks.
And they need meaning.
Particularly at times like this
It has got to add to the strug-
gle for those who return from
the battlefield whether those
blessed to return physically and
emotionally intact or the 31,927
wounded or the survivors
of the 4,487 killed to be sur-
rounded by a culture of doubt
and naysayers.
Flying from Washington back
to my home in California, I saw
many men and women in uni-


form traveling.
I was struck by the number
I noticed reading George W.
Bush's book, "Decision Points."
Perhaps these warriors are
searching for meaning and con-
text for the battles they have
been fighting.
My answer to the question of
"was it worth it?" is this.
The downside of freedom is
making inevitable mistakes -
sometimes big ones. The upside
is scaling the heights and
achieving what could never be
achieved without it
But the ideal of human free-
dom and the pursuit of human,
potential and the struggle
toward .this goal are never in
doubt This is what our country
is so uniquely about and this is
the banner that our brave war-
riors carry.
We cannot lose perspective
that the main arena where
Americans must fight the ongo-
ing battle for freedom is within
our own country and borders.
But just as the rights we claim
and enjoy are universal, so are
our responsibilities.

invented candidate, .
to paraphrase his
own historic perspec-
tive of Middle East
politics. Or perhaps it is more
accurate to say a "reinvented" one
given his penchant for flexible
positions based on the makeup
of his audience. Republicans
really need to ask themselves
whether they want someone with
Gingrich's lack of restraint or
consistency to represent them in
next fall's presidential elections.
While there may be a case
to be made for contending that
Palestinians are an "invented"
people given'their Arab ethnic-
ity, as Gingrich propounded
recently, the same can be said of
Jordanians and citizens of Iraq
and, for that matter, Israelis. Oh,
and let's not forget Americans
who are as invented a populace as
ever occupied Earth.
But here is the former Hnuse
speaker and now recent leader in
the GOP nominating free-for-all
once again giving us all pause
for reflection about what might
happen should he actually win
the White House. It shouldn't be
ignored that his hip shot at the
legitimacy of decades of biparti-
san agreement about the need for
a separate Palestinian state was
made for the benefit of the Jewish
Channel. The fact is, it serves no
good purpose in the continuing
efforts to find a.peaceful solution
by feeding the cause of radicals
on both sides of the turmoil.


Dan K.Thomasson
One wonders if Gingrich, the
self anointed master historian,
understands that when the Jews
finally ended their 40 years
of exile in the wilderness and
entered the Promised Land, they
found people already living there
and quickly dispensed of them '
one way or another. The creation
of modern Israel as a Jewish
state out of what was then called
Palestine after World War II came
about the same way by displacing
those who already lived there on
grounds they were occupying the
Jewish ancestral homeland.
To answer my own question,
Gingrich certainly understands
this but it serves his political pur-
poses to try to prove his newly
minted conservative credentials
by appealing to those elements
who continue to decry the legiti-
macy of the "invented" people.
Unfortunately, the argument that
Gingrich propounds is the same
one anti-Israeli forces have been
using to decry the right of that
state to exist. He, of course, can't
be unaware of that nor of the irre-
sponsibility of his remarks even if
he truly believes them.
This entire episode seems so


typical of a politician who can't
resist mouthing off about every
issue, and when he says some-
thing outrageously controversial
tries to make it go down easier by
cataloging it in pap.
That has been the history of
Gingrich himself a man whose
colorations fit any landscape.
His peripatetic positions have at
times kept him up to his neck in
trouble. But he is nothing if not
resilient His recent ascendency
from the political graveyard to a
double-digit lead in the nominat-
ing race has shown that as have
his entrepreneurial successes
even though some have been
ethically dubious. The ideas
come fast and furious from him
and not all of them are consistent
with ones he expounded a few
moments ago.
He is always quick to repent
for things like pushing the
impeachment of Bill Clinton for,
a sexual episode while he also
carried on one, or for question-
able activities that once got him
unceremoniously booted out of
an office that was third in line
for the presidency. But all that is
old news. This, he would have
us believe, is the New Newt, the
seer and oracle of his party who
is best suited and experienced to
revitalize America.
But wait How does one get
over the feeling that he is an
"invented" candidate?

Victory


in Iraq


A ceremony
Thursday in
Baghdad marked
the final end of
the Iraq war. The
conflict lasted almost nine '
years, cost $800 billion, took
about 4,500 American lives and
wounded 32,000. In the end, it
was a success.
The war was fought for four
primary reasons: to prevent
Saddam Hussein's regime
from being able to use weap-
ons of mass destruction, to end
its support for international
terrorism, to prevent further
instances of aggression against
other countries in the region
and to end human rights abus-
es perpetrated against the Iraqi
people. All four of these objec-
tives were achieved.
The war was an experiment
in regime change. It tested
the proposition that a dictator-
ship in the developing world
could be overthrown by force
arid replaced by a Western-
style democracy. Saddam was
driven from power, and in his
place, Iraq has a representa-
tive government elected by
its people in the freest series
of elections held in the Arab
world. Whether the Iraqis can
maintain their democracy is up
to them.
The war taught some pain-
ful lessons. The heady days of
the initial conventional conflict,
in which the Iraqi military ,
was vanquished in six weeks,
gave way to a less certain
unconventional struggle. This
phase was made more difficult
by serious blunders made by
U.S. leaders, such as the deci-
sions to disband Iraqi forces,
to end pension payments to
former regime officers and to
treat all former members of
the Baath party as pariahs all
of which drove thousands of
well-trained, well-equipped and
motivated men to support the
insurgency.
During the insurgency, Iraq
became the central front of
the war on terrorism, a fact
affirmed by coalition and ter-
rorist leaders alike. Foreign
Islamist fighters streamed into
Iraq under the al Qaeda ban-
ner and sought to seize control
of the country to establish
their envisioned caliphate. But
Iraq became a killing ground
for the terrorists. The tribal
leaders who initially had given
them support and shelter
turned against them when
they realized that life under al
Qaeda's rule would be much
worse than that in a free and
democratic Iraq. With this
"awakening," coalition forces
finally were able to work with
local elements to break the
back of the insurgency, elimi-
nate radical leaders and kill the
terrorists or drive them from
the country.
Iraq also was a test of U.S.
leadership. When conditions
in Iraq worsened from 2003
to 2006, President George W.
Bush came under increasing
pressure from anti-war groups,
opportunistic politicians and
some of the American public
to abandon Iraq to sectarian
violence and civil war. Instead,
Mr. Bush stiffened his resolve,
brought in new advisers and
launched an ultimately suc-
cessful counterinsurgency
strategy. He made a tough
choice, but it was the right
choice.
The more than a million
troops who served in Iraq can
take pride in their achieve-
ment They did what many
thought couldn't be done.
They fought, they bled, they
suffered, but they persevered.


They kept going when many
called for them to cut and run.
And they won.

It strikes me odd that we can listen to
political speeches for an hour but during
a religious speech, we begin to squirm
after about fifteen minutes.
We will endure the hot sun for a politi-

uncomfortable we are distracted from
the message?
Could it possibly be that we are not
as interested in spiritual speeches as we
are the political speeches of our country-

Lectures have a purpose also.
Short snippets are great at getting our

Could it be we have lost the "art" of

grammed to only comprehend what can
be said in less than 144 characters? Has
our attention span become so short that
we are "over-loaded" if we are asked to
listen to more than 1000 words?
I do not think so. Talk radio is very
popular. People listen to sports talk radio
for hours while driving or working. The
same is true for political or monetary
talk radio. Some people even schedule
their day around when their favorite
radio personality will be on the air.
We can listen for long periods of time
if we really have a desire. Maybe that
is the problem with our attitude toward
long sermons. We really do not have a
desire to listen to what God wants us to
hear.
Preaching is as powerful today as it

Over two thousand years
ago a few wise men made
a long and hazardous
journey from a far eastern
land to Palestine, seeking
a new born king. When they reached
Jerusalem, they asked "Where is He
who has been born King of the Jews?
For we have see His star in the east, and
are come to worship Him" (Matthew '
2:2). Notice as verse 2 says they came
to Jerusalem not Bethlehem. They
had received information that the King
of the Jews had been born, and went
to Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine.
These wise men knew that the king.was
not a baby, for they had seen His star
almost two years before. It must have
been frustrating for these wise men
when it seemed no one had heard of
such a birth. He was almost two years
old and no one had even heard of Him.
Remember they came "to worship" Him.
Again, the wise.men asked "Where
is He". All today should ask the same
question in all the celebrations and
excitement "Where is He". Instead of
following the crowd may God help us to
dare to be different.
Why were these men wise? First of
all, they studied the word of God. How
much of the scripture the men had, we
don't know, but they had enough to be
lead to Jerusalem. Evidently they had
the book of Moses (Numbers 24: 17,
19): "There shall come a star out of
Jacob, and a Scepter shall rise out of
Israel..." "Out of Jacob shall he come
who shall have dominion". The men
. were wise because they sought Christ
in the scriptures. Jeremiah 19:13 says
"You will seek me and find Me, when
you search for Me with all your heart".
If one does not read or hear the Word
of God they will never find the Lord
Jesus. Without the Word salvation


will not be possible. That is why Bible
teachers and preachers have such a
tremendous responsibility to get the
Word out. Secondly these men were
wise because they believed the word.
It's not enough to study the word, it
must be believed. Some men know
the Bible from a literary standpoint,
admire its beauty, its structure, and
yet hav-

S. these men
'were wise
Hugh Sherrill Jr. because
ems-hugh43@comcastnet they acted
upon that
which they
had' heard and believed. They not only
believed the record, they set out on
a long and perilous journey that they
might acknowledge Him as their sav-
ior. One must not only-hear the word
but he must act on the word.
Notice the gifts they brought. They
gave Him gold, which symbolized his
deity and lordship; they brought frank-
incense, which denotes worship (after
they acknowledged his lordship they
worshiped Him); they brought myrrh,
which speaks of service and suffering in
the Christian life.
The record closes with the statement
that the wise men returned to their own
country. We know nothing more of
them.

thou shall be saved" (Acts 16:31).

HAGAR THE HORRIBLE


DEAR ABBY


Underweight college student

can't stomach dad's insults


DEAR ABBY: I'm an 18-
year-old male living on my
own in an apartment not
far from my parents' home.
They visit me often and
take turns driving me to
the local college because I
don't have a car.
My parents tend to
worry about me. I'm rather
thin, but I eat healthy.
My dad goes over the top
with his concern about my
weight and it is hurtful. He
has called me a "cadaver"
in front of friends. And
when he drops me off after
classes, he often says,
"Now go eat something fat-
tening!"
I have tried to discuss
how his repeated com-
ments affect my self-con-
fidence, but am always
met with, "I'm your father.
I have every right to be
concerned." Am I wrong
to take offense at my dad's
brand of concern? Is there
anything I can do to evade
these hurtful comments? -
TWIG WITH FEELINGS
DEAR TWIG: Your
father's attempt to "help"
you by ridiculing you in
front of your contempo-
raries is insensitive. The fact
that he is your father does
not entitle him to be cruel.
' If there is a student
health center at your col-
lege, go there and talk to a
medical professional about
what is a healthy weight
for your height and age,
and whether any medical
tests might be necessary
to verify your health. If
not, consult your family


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
physician. This may pro-
vide the "proof' you need
in discussions with your
father. Some males fill out
later than others.
You should also ask your
mother to point out to your
dad that what he's doing is
counterproductive. Perhaps
she can make him see the
light If that doesn't work,
arrange other transporta-
tion to and from school so
you will be less dependent
on your father.

DEAR ABBY: A friend
and I were talking about
* how wimpy a lot of guys in
our generation are. We're
both in our mid-20s and
seldom meet guys who
take charge.
Several times we have
met guys who said they'd
call and set up a date. We
know they're interested
because they have told our
friends they'd like to date us
again. But then they don't
call. Try as we might to give
them chances to ask us out,
they usually don't
I know that traditional
dating rules are often
discarded, but I don't
want to be the aggressor.
Their being "scared" isn't
an acceptable excuse,


much less an attractive
quality. Why do women
so often have to do all the
work nowadays or end
up alone? PREFERS
TRADITIONAL
DEAR PREFERS
TRADITIONAL: Women
do not have to do ALL the
work in a relationship or
risk remaining single for
life. But they do have to
shoulder a lot more of the
responsibility than a gener-
ation ago as a result of the
women's movement. (Yes,
I know I'll catch "heck" for
saying it.) As women have
become more independent
and aggressive, the old
rules of romance have
started to disappear.
Men aren't stupid. Their
view is, "If women are
willing to do the courting,
why should men do it?"
The guys you've described
aren't wimps; their pas-
sivity hasn't turned other
women off. Sending you
messages through your
friends instead of being
direct and following
through on their prom-
ises to call is business as
usual for them. While their
behavior may seem imma-
ture, it has worked for
them before.
Don't give up hope.
There are men who are
interested in old-fashioned
romance, but they are fewer
in number. Be patient, keep
looking and you'll find one.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Don't let little aggravations
get you down. Enjoy the
spirit of the festive sea-
son. The more active you
are, the more you will be
appreciated. Short or long
distance travel will shed a
new light on an emotional
situation you face. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept
22): Analyzing a situation
will confuse you and lead
to an altercation. Take a
wait-and-see approach.
Being accused or accusing
someone who challenges
you must be avoided if you
don't want to ruin your
relationship. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.

institutions or old partners
will bring a favorable con-
clusion. ***

goals will lead to greater
security and happiness.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Take hold of your
life and your future. Do
your own thing and follow
your heart A good idea
can turn into a lucrative
business. Have confidence
in who you are and what
you can do. A partnership
must be monitored. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Refrain from doing too
much running about. You
will face obstacles if you are
too quick to judge others.
Emotional upset can be
expected if you question a
partner or someone close to
you. Self-deception will lead
to self-doubt. ***

CHS struggles
late, but hangs
on for 49-47 win.

By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.comrn

For three quarters it
lookedlike ColumbiaHigh
would blow away Atlantic
Coast High in Friday's
district contest. A 17-5
fourth quarter changed
that, but the Tigers were
able to hang on, 49-47, to
beat the Stingrays.
Morris Marshall scored
15 of his game high 18
points for the Tigers
(6-2, 3-0) in the first half
as CHS opened up a 44-30
lead.
An alley-oop to Marcus
Amerson ignited an
11-2 run from the Tigers
which included two
three-point shots from
Javonta6 Foster to extend
Columbia's lead to 40-24
early in the third quarter.
Atlantic Coast made its
run to close the third quar-
ter and begin the fourth.
The Stingrays closed the
third quarter outscoring
Columbia 6-4 the rest
of the way and started
the fourth quarter on a
9-0 run.
Laremy Tunsil's offen-
sive rebound and lay-up
converted into fa three-
point play the old-fash-
ioned way after, a foul
on Atlantic Coast. Nigel
Atkinson would. add
Columbia's only other
bucket in the period, but
it was enough to hold off
the Stingrays' 17 points.
Amerson scored
10 points as the only other
Tiger in double digits.
Foster had nine points,
Tunsil had five points,
Atkinson finished with
four points and Tre'
Simmons had three.
"I don't know what hap-
pened in the fourth, but
it was like they put a lid
on the basket," Columbia
coadh Horace Jefferson
said. "We hung in there
and won and I'll take an
ugly win over a. beautiful
loss any day. We're not
about moral victories. We
could have easily lost, but
when you get outscored
17-5 in the fourth and still
win, I guess that's a good
thing. I'll take some of
the blame for not prac-
ticing them as hard as I
could last week. It's not
an excuse. It's a fact, but
it was important for them
to do well on their finals.
We're student athletes
first."

I wonder what Tyson
Alualu is up to these
days. For those
of you that don't
remember, Alualu
is the defensive tackle
the Jacksonville Jaguars
selected over Tim Tebow
in the 2010 draft.
How'd that work out for
general manager Gene
Smith? Better yet, how'd
that work out for the
Jaguars' franchise?

Fort White wins
district battle
of the Indians.

By TIM KIRBY

FORT WHITE Fort
White High's basketball
team evened its District
5-4A record and kept
Keystone Heights High in
the basement with a 73-32
home win on Friday.
The visiting Indians kept
it close until late in the first
quarter when Fort White
went on a 10-0 run in the
final 1:20 to take a 21-11
lead at the buzzer.
Fort White pushed its
advantage to 39-16 at the
half and eventually brought
on a running clock early in
the fourth quarter.
Melton Sanders led
Fort White with 28 points
including three 3-pointers.
He was 5-of-6 from the free
throw line and had two of
four steals near the close of
the first quarter and start of
the second quarter that got
-the roll started.
"We started out playing
a little flat, and I told them
they need to play the game
and not the team we're
playing," Fort White head
coach Isiah Phillips said.
"They played better defense,
especially in the second half.
Everybody played a lot and
all contributed. We need
to play with that intensity
every game."
A.J. Legree also hit
double figures for Fort
White with 12 points. He
had one 3-pointer and a two-
hand power dunk off a fast
break.
Trey Phillips and Deonte
Dunning each scored nine
points and had one trey
apiece.
Raul Colon scored seven
points, all coming off
offensive rebounds, and
Jonathan Dupree chipped
in with a basket.
Fort White dominated
the fourth quarter going on
a 15-2 run.
Chase Julius scored
11 points for Keystone
Heights (1-9, 0-5) and
Robbie Kerr scored 10.
The Indians have their
first winning streak of the
season, having defeated
Hawthorne High 55-53 at
home on Saturday.
Fort White (4-3, 2-2)
and the Lady Indians host
Hamilton County High in
a tri-match today. The boys
junior varsity, 63-51 winners
over Keystone Heights,
gets things started with a
4:30 p.m. tip-off.


Something I just can't get over


traded up to select
Missouri quarterback
Blaine Gabbert. In a
word, Gabbert could be
described as awful.
I wonder if anyone in
Jacksonville's organization
is second guessing a
couple of these decisions.
While Tebow has
gathered a 7-1 record
as a starter this year,
Jacksonville's season
can be boiled down to
one thing. Jacksonville
must blame Gabbert.
Furthermore, Jacksonville
must blame Smith.
Alualu has been a
decent player for the
Jaguars, but he hasn't
developed into the player
he was drafted to be. This
season, Alualu has 2.5


sacks and 21 solo tackles.
That's hardly the impact
that Tebow has had on the
Broncos.
Gabbert has been even
worse. He's completing
just over 50 percent of
his passes, which is one
stat that he's better than
Tebow in, but he's also
fumbled eight times and
thrown 10 interceptions.
It's not all about
numbers. Sometimes you
have to use the eye test
and Gabbert is failing
miserably. He often times
looks scared in the pocket.
Gabbert doesn't have a
lot of playmakers around
him, but neither does
Tebow. Just look at the
body language of the two
players. While Tebow


gives off a language of
inspiration, Gabbert seems
to exude fear.
A friend of mine that
lives in Denver told me
that sports talk radio in
his area has said that
Denver would trade
Tebow to Jacksonville
for a first-round pick this
season. There's no way
it's going to happen, but it
makes you wonder what
I've thought all along -
Jacksonville should have
drafted Tebow.

I consider myself a
pretty knowledgeable
person when it comes to
the sport of football, but
my friend Jonathan King
taught me there is always
something to learn earlier


this week.
For years, I've referred
to a quarterback's quick
pitch forward to a player
as a 'shovel pass'. My
friend told me it's actually
called a 'shuffle pass'.
It turns out that we're
both right. The term
shovel pass was first
used to describe the
quarterback's throwing
motion mimicking a
worker using a shovel.
Announcers also refer to
this pass as a shuffle pass
based on the quarterbacks
shuffling of his feet most
of the time during this
play.
