Courthouse days before
Christmas has gone cold.
"Right now the investiga-

all of our leads, but we're
hoping that at some point
somebody will come for-
ward or maybe we'll hear
a story we'll be able to fol-
low up on and be able to
track down where those
packages came from and
their purpose," said Capt
John Blanchard, Lake City
Police Department public
information officer. "We
are not actively searching
for anything else right now
because we've exhausted
all of those leads, but we
are open to new information

For the past 13 years
Brad Wheeler and his fam-
ily have helped the less for-
tunate by accepting dona-
tions from those who view
the 80,000-light Christmas
display he erects at his
Brookside Court home.
The donations go to two
local charities.
On Christmas Eve,
Wheeler said a "Grinch"
ruined his Christmas by
stealing the donations box
at the end of his driveway.
"It soured my,
Christmas," Wheeler said.
"I couldn't sleep Christmas
Eve night just worrying
about it. I just couldn't
believe it. I've been doing
the (donations) box for
four or five years with the
donations going chari-
ties. It's the first time I've
ever had anything stolen
in all these years. All the

LEGISLATURE


Budget cuts likely again


GARY FINEOUT
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE It's almost becoming an
annual rite each year in Tallahassee: Another year,
another billion-dollar plus budget shortfall.
Florida lawmakers head into their annual ses-
sion in January confronted by a nearly $2 billion
gap. This time around it is primarily caused by an
unenviable combination of growing expenses in
safety net programs such as Medicaid at the same a
sluggish economic recovery is expected to keep tax
dollars from growing significantly.
In the last several years, as the recession has
taken its toll on the state's battered real estate
market and unemployment soared into double


digits, the Republican-controlled Legislature has
tried nearly every way to balance the state budget.
They've cut spending, they've eliminated state
workers, they've relied on billions in federal stimu-
lus dollars and one year they even raised taxes.
This coming session legislative leaders and Gov.
Rick Scott have already ruled out one option:
Raising taxes or fees as a way to help balance the
budget. That means lawmakers will instead have to
come up with another round of cuts.
"There's no easy choices in this budget year,"
said House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park.
"It's a tough budget year and there's no magic bul-
let."

NEW YORK
She time off from James
I Bond has been very good
to Daniel Craig.
n In the three years since
the release of "Quantum
of Solace," Craig has made his
Broadway debut ("A Steady Rain");
starred in the World War H-era tale
of Jewish rebellion, "Defiance";
joined up with Steven Spielberg
again ("The Adventures of Tintin,"
following their earlier collaboration
in "Munich"); and starred in the
summer blockbuster "Cowboys &
Aliens." Now, he's adding yet anoth-
er major franchise to his plate, with
David Fincher's remake of "The Girl
With the Dragon Tattoo."
At this point, the early misgivings
of the "Blond Bond" seem laughable.
Craig has emerged as one of the big-
gest British movie stars. More than
that, he's already managed to prove
that maybe more than any previous
guardian of the tuxedoed spy he
won't be pigeonholed by the role.
Craig has not just grown into Bond,.
but, perhaps, beyond it.
"It's a very fortunate time.for me at
the moment," Craig said in a recent
interview. "So Im just trying to grab it
"with both hands."
Though the 43-year-old actor is
kmown for being careful of his privacy,
Craig, dressed casually in a jean jacket
:'and jeans, comes across-as relaxed.
Self-deprecation is his fallback, and
'he often chortles sheepishly at his
own wit. Though his screen presence
Is bleak and still, his manner is more
"loose and jocular. He meets a reporter
in the lobby of a New York hotel for a
recent interview, but Craig isn't visit-.
ing this is his hometown now.
"It was one of those decisions in my
life where it was like going, I want
to be here.' Thankfully, I've got very
good reasons," he says, presumably
alluding to his wife Rachel Weisz and


Daily Scripture


I"Of David. Praise the LORD, my
soul; all my inmost being, praise
his holy name. Praise the LORD,
my soul, and forget not all his
benefits-"

Psalm 103:1-2


In this film image released by Sony. Pictures, Daniel Craig, left, and Robin Wright
are shown in a scene from "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."


her 4-year-old son. Craig and Weisz
(his co-star in Jim Sheridan's horror
flick "Dream House," released earlier
this year) wed privately in June. He
has a teenage daughter from an early
marriage:
Though Craig's personal life has
become an increasing interest to tab-
loids, he's maintained a degree of elu-
siveness. Even in risible concepts such
as "Cowboys and Aliens," he seems
somehow above the fray, consistently
.projecting an air of professionalism
and intellect.
Fincher calls him the "giant plan-
etary body," of 'The Girl With the
Dragon Tattoo," around which the
other characters (such as Rooney
Mara's Lisbeth Salander) orbit. The
director is clearly taken by Craig,
whom he compares to Robert
Mitchum and Kirk Douglas agile
leading men with calm exteriors and
smoldering eyes.
"He's obviously got a physical pres-


ence and a sense of menace," says
Fincher. "But he has this ability to
be available for the other actor. It's a
selflessness. Its a movie star thing. It's
knowing how to create a conduit for
the audience.
"It's what he can do in here,"
Fincher says, gesturing a close-up
frame.
In "The Girl With the Dragon
Tattoo," Craig plays intrepid journalist
Mikael Blomkvist, who teams up with
Salander to investigate a long-dormant
missing woman case that unravels the
sordid history of a wealthy Swedish
family. It is, of course, based on the
best-selling novels of Stieg Larsson,
whose books were previously adapted
into a trio of Swedish-language movies.
If the film succeeds how Sony hopes
it will, it will generate at least two
more films meaning Craig could be
simultaneously attached to two of big
movie series.

Wilson will offer
anti-hazing bill
TALLAHASSEE
U.S. Rep. Frederica
*Wilson said Tuesday she
,.plans to introduce a federal
anti-hazing bill designed to
ensure no one endures a
.beating like one that lead
to the death of Florida
A&M drum major Robert
Champion last month.
Wilson, a first-term
Democrat from Miami
who previously served a
.dozen years in the Florida
'Legislature, said she plans
to have the proposed legisla-
tion ready when the House
returns from its holiday
break in January.
"Hazing is demeaning,
dangerous, and, sadly,
deadly," Wilson said. "Itfs
time that we put an end to
this horrible and humiliating
ritual once and for all, so that
no more students suffer the
way that Robert and others
have."
The medical examiner's
office in Orlando found that
Champion suffered bruises
to his chest, arms, shoulder
and back and the resulting
internal bleeding caused
him to go into shock, which
killed him. The death was
declared a homicide by the
medical examiners. Police
say Champion was punched
and paddled in a hazing
ritual Nov. 19 during the
Marching 100 band trip to
the annual Florida Classic in
Orlando.
Champion's death and the
severe beating of another
band member during a haz-
, ing ritual three weeks ear-
: lier have brought the most
recent, but most intense,
scrutiny to a culture of haz-
ing within the university's
:; famed Marching 100 band.

,.Race top factor in
hate crimes
', TALLAHASSEE -
; Florida's attorney gen-
. eral reports that 149 hate
. crimes were committed in


the state in 2010.
Attorney General Pam
Bondi released the 2010
figures Tuesday. The infor-
matioii includes details on
the types of hate crimes
committed throughout
Florida.
The first-term
Republican from Tampa
says the hate crimes
were reported by local
law enforcement agen-
cies throughout the state
that provide data to the
Florida Department of Law,
Enforcement.
More than 46 percent
of the hate crimes were
racially motivated and
21.5 percent resulted from
sexual orientation. The
report states 19,5 percent
resulted from religious
beliefs and 12.7 percent
from ethnicity.
Florida reported 148
hate crimes in 2009. That
was the lowest number
since e state began
tracking them in 1990.
Hate crime reports peaked
in 1992 with 395 cases

Thousands mourn
slain officer
LAKELAND Gov. Rick
Scott joined thousands of
law enforcement officers
at the funeral of a central
Florida officer slain in the
line of duty.
The Lakeland Ledger
reports that Scott and
Attorney General Pam
Bondi joined mourners
Tuesday for the funeral for
25-year-old Lakeland Police
Officer Arnulfo Crispin.
Crispin was fatally shot in
the head while questioning
some men while on patrol
Dec. 18. Another officer
who arrived minutes after
Crispin's last radio call
found him unresponsive on
the ground.
A 19-year-old has been
charged with first-degree
murder in Crispin's death.
During the funeral, Police
Chief Lisa Womack praised
Crispin for his passion and


energy, and she said he
was becoming a respected
leader in the department

Son: Pilot routinely went out on medical flights


By JENNIFER KAY
Associated Press

MIAMI The pilot killed in a helicop-
ter crash while heading to pick up a heart
for transplant routinely flew medical trans-
port missions and was a decorated veteran
of combat missions in Vietnam, the man's
son said Tuesday.
A heart surgeon and a technician from
the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville also died
in the crash early Monday in remote,
dense woods in north Florida.
E. Hoke Smith, 68, founded SK Jets in
St. Augustine in 1997 for medical transport
flights, his son, Derrick Smith, told The
Associated Press. The younger Smith is
the company's general manager.
Smith began flying when he was 16, and.
he piloted combat missions in Vietnam,
his son said. The company's website lists
the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the
Distinguished Flying Cross among his
commendations.
Smith routinely flew medical transport
missions, particularly during the holidays


when he gave his employees time off, his
son said.
"He did them quite often. He loved to
fly," Derrick Smith said. "He didn't want
them to have to take time away from their
families."
Derrick Smith referred questions about
the crash to the National Transportation
Safety Board. An NTSB spokesman said
investigators were on the scene in Clay
County.
No flight plan had been filed for the
helicopter, which was headed to Shands
at the University of Florida, said Federal
Aviation Administration spokeswoman
Kathleen Bergen.
The helicopter also was carrying heart
surgeon Dr. Luis Bonilla and procurement
technician David Hines of the Mayo Clinic
in Jacksonville.
Mayo Clinic spokesman Layne Smith
said the patient who had been scheduled
to receive the heart is back on the waiting
list for a new organ.
Kathy Giery,-a spokeswoman for Shands'
LifeQuest Organ Recovery Service, said


the heart was not recovered from the
donor. It was too far along in the process
of lining up organ recipients and surgical
teams to get the heart to another patient,
Giery said.
Giery could not say whether any other
organs were recovered and donated because
of privacy laws, but she said the heart not
being used did not affect the other recovery
personnel already in place.
The heart would have been the first
organ recovered, Giery said.
Bergen said the Bell 206 helicopter
went down about 12 miles northeast of
Palatka, which is about 40 miles east of
Gainesville.
The Mayo Clinic performs more than
350 transplants each year in Jacksonville
with liver and kidney transplants being the
most frequent, Layne Smith said. Crews
frequently make trips to retrieve organs,
but Smith couldn't immediately recall any
past cases where staff and organs for
transplant were involved in crashes.
The crash site was about a mile off a dirt
road in a densely wooded area, and the


crash ignited a fire that burned about 10
acres of woods, said Clay County Sheriff's
Office Lt. Russ Burke.
The wreckage was discovered around
noon Monday, and the aircraft was not in
one piece, he said.
"It was well hidden in the woods," Burke
said. "If it hadn't set the woods on fire it
might have been a while before anyone
spotted it."
All three bodies have been recovered,
he said.
"We've been touched by the outpour-
ing of prayer and sympathy from patients,
friends and colleagues who understand
the demands and sacrifices made by
these dedicated transplant teams," said
Dr. William Rupp, vice president of Mayo
Clinic and CEO of Mayo Clinic in Florida,
in a statement Tuesday. "We hope the
community honors their sacrifice by sup-
porting organ donation."
The National Weather Service in
Jacksonville reported there was light fog
with overcast conditions in the area but no
* rain when the helicopter went down.


BUDGET: More cuts likely required to make up a nearly $2 billion deficit

Continued From Page 1A


The governor has already
given lawmakers his own
recommendations that will
likely be used as a building
block for the final budget
Despite the shortfall
Scott has come up with own
$66.4 billion spending plan
that would significantly
boost spending on schools
by making steep cuts in
what the state spends reim-
bursing hospitals to take
care of patients enrolled in
Medicaid. He also wants
to shut down a handful of
state prisons and eliminate
some 4,500 state jobs.
The governor's second
set of budget proposals are
dramatically different from
the one he offered shortly
after was he first sworn
into governor.
Scott in early 2011 called
for a 10 percent cut for
education; as part of a "jobs
budget" that also called for
nearly $2 billion worth of
tax cuts as part of his push
to jumpstart the state's


economy.
Scott now says he's heard
from Floridians that they
want more money spent on
education so he is pushing
a budget that would boost
public school spending by
roughly $1 billion. His tax cut
proposals, meanwhile, have
been dramatically scaled
back. This year Scott is call-
ing for, a modest change in
the state's corporate income
tax and a tax break for com-
panies purchasing machin-
ery and equipment that
together would cost roughly
$30 million.
Scott also hinted that
he was willing to veto the
entire budget and force
lawmakers to do it over if
they approve a budget that
did not include a significant
increase for schools.
Initially the governor was
unwilling to say what a "sig-
nificant" increase is, but he
also says he likes what he
recommended.
"I think the_ right num-


ber is a billion dollars," Scott
said.
Scott's budget proposal
drew a sharp response from
Democratic legislators who
accused the governor of
pitting seniors and prison
guards against teachers. The
'move also drew fire because
the Medicaid cuts would fall
hardest on not-for-profit hos-
pitals. Scott led the nation's
largest chain of for-profit
hospitals in the 1990s until
he was forced out amid a
probe into Medicare fraud.
But Senate President
Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt
Island, has called Scott's
overall budget "very much
reflective of what the Senate
will be pursuing this year."
State employees could
also find themselves get-
ting targeted for budget cuts
once again.
Last spring legislators
forced public employees to
start paying for a portion of
their pension costs as a way
to cover a nearly $4 billion


shortfall.
Now legislators may go
after state worker health
care benefits as a potential
source of savings. The state
is spending nearly $1.9 bil-
lion on health care benefits
for state workers, with about
$1.45 billion coming from
taxpayers.
The Scott administration
earlier this year already
negotiated new contracts
with health maintenance
organizations that limited
the number of HMOs avail-
able for state workers and
is expected to save the state
more than $350 million over
the next two years.
The governor, who cur-
rently pays $30 a month to
cover himself and his wife,
also has recommended that
all state employees pay the
same for health insurance.
That's a move that would
affect roughly 30,000 state
workers, including Scott,
his agency heads, managers
and state legislators.


GRINCH: Owner will make up for stolen funds

to charity."
The box, emptied avery night, con-
tained about $200, he said.
He said the box had been checked
around 8 p.m., but later that night
when a woman asked him where the
box was so she could make a dona-
tion, he noticed it was gone.
"At first I thought somebody had
knocked it off the thing it was con-
nected to," he said. "I ran right out
there and it wasn't there. I looked
around in the general area and
couldn't find it"
Police say the box was stolen some-
time before 10 p.m.
The donations box was a locking
mailbox, brown with a gold-colored
top.
The next day, Christmas, Wheeler


posted a sign on the replacement box
indicating a "Grifich" stole the origi-
nal the night before, but also thank-
ing contributors for their generosity.
He used a coffee can to collect
donations on Christmas night. He
said he emptied the can roughly
every hour.
Wheeler said he's already spoken
to a relative and devised a better col-
lection system for next year.
Proceeds collected from the dona-
tions box are split evenly between
Happy House Day Care and the
Christian Service Center. Last year
Wheeler: collected a total of $2,400
that was split between the two chari-
ties. He -said he was on track to
roughly equal that total this year,
even with the theft.


Wheeler said he plans to make up
the stolen money himself.
It takes a month to erect the lights
and other elements of the display that
is turned on annually the Wednesday
evening before Thanksgiving. The
lights remain on until Jan. 1.
Thousands view the display each
holiday season, including holiday
travelers and local residents.
Wheeler has four children and he
said he takes them when he delivers
the checks to the charities. He said
he has spoken to them about the theft
of the donations box.
'They understand giving back, not
only to your church but you need to
give to anybody in need," he said.


Rank-and-file state work-
ers pay $50 a month for indi-
vidual coverage and $180
a month for family cover-
age. Scotfs push to require
everyone to pay that rate
would increase health insur-
ance premiums for some
employees by $1,800 a year
for family coverage.
This would save close to
$50 million.
But Sen. J.D. Alexander,
R-Lake Wales and the Senate
budget chief, has been look-
ing at whether the state
should revamp the types
of coverage it offers state
workers as both a way to
save money and as a way
to encourage state workers


to stay healthier.
"When you go out and
make a $5 copay, it's real
easy to be out of sight arid
out of mind what the real
bill is," Alexander said. '
Alexander added "if we
are going to spend $2 bil-
lion, I want to spend that
$2 billion to get the best
possible deal we can for the
people."
State legislators normally
pass their budget during
their annual 60-day ses-
sion, which usually starts pn
March. But this year's ses-
sion begins Jan. 10 because
the Legislature must also
pass new maps for legislative
and Congressional districts.

Morrison, 19.
According to reports, on
Dec. 15 the sheriff's office;
launched an investigation
into several vehicle burglar-
ies in the area of Country
Club Road.
During one of the bur-
glaries a credit card was
stolen and used at several
locations in town, includ-
ing the Redbox video rent-
al kiosk at Winn-Dixie on
South Marion Street arid
the Blockbuster kiosk at
Food Lion.
A check of surveillance
footage led to a vehicle
description and possible
suspects. Authorities put
out a Be On the Look Out
(BOLO) alert to all depu-
ties for the vehicle and sus-
pect.
On Dec. 20, Columbia
County Sheriff's Office Lt
Pete Spurlock found the
vehicle as well as a possible
suspect
The suspect, interviewed


by CCSO Det. Jimmy
Watson, reportedly con-
s. eased, to: using the credit
card, as well as to involve-
ment in other vehicle bur-
glaries.
The other two suspects
also confessed to their
involvement in the crimes,
authorities said.
The suspects have been
cooperating with Watson to
return any stolen property
still in their possession. ,
They said some of the
property was returned to
a victim who recognized
them with it. Sheriff's
deputies are asking this
person to contact them so
they can confirm the items
were returned. The person
can remain anonymous,
officials said. Anyone with
information in this case is
asked to call Watson at 758-
1095 or Crime Stoppers of
Columbia County at 754-
7099.


'GIFTS': Wrapped boxes still unexplained

than six hours after three
mysterious boxes wrapped
as Christmas gifts were
found behind the Columbia
County Courthouse.
The Alachua County
Sheriff's Office Bomb
Disposal Unit, which was
called in to dispose of the
boxes, unit x-rayed the pack-
ages before opening them
by remote controlled robot
All three were empty.
"We haven't gotten any far-
ther as identifying who left
the boxes," Blanchard said.
"As far as I know nobody has
come forward and said they
either are missing boxes or
that the boxes were placed
there by them."
Authorities do not believe
the packages were leftwith
malicious intent
'These were far enough
removed that we're not
sure exactly why they
were placed there, but we
don't think was a particular
group or person targeted
with these packages," he
said. "Honestly, we don't
know. We are still wonder-
ing."


Blanchard said there are
several possible explana-
tionsfor why the packages
were left near the lake.
He said it's possible some-
one wrapped the boxes and
placed them near other
Christmas decorations in
the downtown area only to
have them moved by some-
one else.
Another possibility was
that someone left them
behind after using them as
a photographic prop.
Blanchard said over
the past few years certain
people have left Christmas
gifts for the homeless at
bus stops in the downtown
area.
"Most of the stuff that
had been left that appeared
to be presents usually had
some sort of clothing asso-
ciated with them like coats
and blankets, these particu-
lar packages had none of
that," Blanchard said. "Even
though there was a similar-
ity that there were some
type of packages, they were
not consistent with what we
had found before that was


left for some of the home-
less people. That raised
our suspicion. In the way
that the bomb disposal unit
destroyed the packages,
we were not able to forensi-
cally do anything else such
as get fingerprints to try
and identify a suspect that
would have left them."
Art Forgey, an Alachua
County Sheriff's Office
public information officer,
said the Alachua County
Sheriff's Office bomb dis-
posal unit responded to
Columbia County as part of
a mutual aid agreement.
Under the agreement,
any time help is needed
they would come here and
Columbia County would
reciprocate when needed.
Forgey said labor costs
for four bomb technicians
coming to Lake City for the
incident is about $1,130.
"That's absorbed as part
of our budget," he said. 'We
have more resources than
Columbia or Union County.
We're like their big brother,
we're helping our smaller
brothers anytime they need


assistance. The agreement
(to help) encompasses the
whole county."
Bomb disposal units
statewide are funded by the
federal Dept. of Homeland
Security, Forgey said.

A specter


trumping

scientific


openness


assortment of a flu
virus is not exactly
bathtub biochem-
istry.
Still, it's understandable that
a national biosecurity advisory
board wants to suppress key
details from being released by
scientific teams about how they
created new highly transmis-
sible and deadly strains of avian
influenza.
The new strains reportedly
kill 60 percent to 80 percent of
infected lab animals (ferrets)
and are easily spread. Scientists
assume the modified bird flu
would be just as prolific and
deadly among people.
In the wild, bird flu viruses
don't easily jump among
humans. Of the 600 people who
have contracted this type of flu
since it emerged in Southern
Asia 15 years ago, most seem
to have picked it up from close
contact with birds, not people.
Scientists have always
expected nature would even-
tually come up with a strain
that could spread like wildfire
among people. Researchers
in Holland and a joint effort at
the Universities of Tokyo and
Wisconsin were trying to get
ahead of natural selection when
they created the novel viruses.
Before the 2001 anthrax
attacks, studies describing .
methods and equipment for
such experiments were rou-
tinely published so colleagues
could repeat and improve the
tests. Today, the specter of
good science being exploited
for bioterrorism trumps scien-
tific openness.
And that has virologists who
heard the findings presented
at a conference in Europe last
summer, or reviewed drafts
of the papers emailed around
the globe ahead of publication,
wondering if the censorship
does more harm than good.
More than one has argued
nature is much more likely to
brew up a pandemic form of
H5N1 than "some rogue state
acting on the data in the two
manuscripts."

A sweet Christmas at a


1950s migrant labor camp


Having been raised in
a family of migrant
farm workers, I
never adopted the
commercialization
of Christmas. We were poor,
and I didn't expect to receive
many gifts. I certainly couldn't
give many if they cost more
than a few dollars.
Still, I experienced the true
spirit of Christmas as a child,
and the beauty of that experi-
ence has stayed with me over
the years.
In 1953, when I was 8 years
old, my parents began hav-
ing serious marital problems.
Because I was the oldest of five
kids and strong enough to work
in the fields, I traveled that
year with my father from Fort
Lauderdale to Exmore, Va., to
Dover; Del., and to Long Island,
N.Y.
During the yuletide 'season,
we were living in an all-black
migrant camp outside Dover. As
I recall, our camp had two rows
of wooden shacks facing each
other with eight families and
about 14 children, from toddlers
to young teenagers.
We were there to lay irriga-
tion lines for soybeans. The
work, which began each day at
first light and ended at sunset,
was grueling. But I don't want
to leave the impression that we
were unhappy kids. We mostly
were happy, traveling to differ-
ent states and towns, romping
in the woods, fishing, reading
comic books and telling stories
about ghosts and monsters
around camp fires. No one went
hungry. The wife of our crew
chief prepared breakfast and
dinner for a modest fee. If we
were short of money, we ate on
'credit.
Our major problem was that
our parents rarely had dispos-
able dollars. As Christmas
approached, they made it clear


Bill Maxwell
maxwell@sptimes.com
that the kids wouldn't get many
gifts. They didn't have to tell
us. We knew. Life on the road
in black labor camps during
the 1950s was a stern teacher
of reality, and we resigned our-
selves to focusing on the neces-
sities food and water, a roof
over our heads and a drivable
vehicle.
On Christmas Eve, all of the
families gathered around the
community fire and the tree
someone had dragged in from
the woods. The tree didn't
have lights, but a few women
trimmed it with angels and stars
made of construction and crepe
papers. We sang the few carols
we knew.
Before bedtime, my father
handed me a package wrapped
in newspaper pages from the
Baltimore Sun. I was not to
open it until daybreak even
though I knew what was inside:
the three Phantom comic books
I wanted.
I was awakened the, next
morning by horns blowing. I
jumped from my bunk and went
outside. Others came from their
shacks, too. Dozens of cars and
pickups were in the parking lot,
their horns blasting. Several
white adults and more than a
dozen children each child
carrying a gift emerged from
their vehicles and marched
toward the camp entrance sing-
ing a carol.
Once the group was inside
the camp, a man in a Santa
costume stepped forward and
yelled, "Merry Christmas!" He


said they had brought gifts for
us. Then, the most amazing
thing happened: One by one, a
white child called out the name
of a black child and handed
the black child gift-wrapped
shoebox. A smiling boy about
my age called my name, and I
nervously walked to him.
"Merry Christmas, William,"
he said and handed me a shoe-
box.
Wishing us "Merry
Christmas" a final time, our
visitors drove away, waving as
they went. Stunned and excited,
we found places to sit and open
our shoeboxes. I'll never forget
mine. The lid had the image
of Buster Brown and Tige,
Buster's mischievous mutt.
Inside were a harmonica, a pair
of socks, an assortment of hard
candies, a bag of grven Cat Eyp.
shooting marbles, pencils, an
eraser and a kaleidoscope, my
favorite of all.
The other kids were just as
happy. It was a.grand Christmas
morning in our remote labor
camp.
I learned years later that
the visiting children attended
schools in and around Dover,
the man in the Santa costume
was a principal and the other
adults were teachers and par-
ents. Our crew chief's wife
had secretly worked with the
schools on the project, which
was how the other kids knew
our names and appropriate gifts.
For sentimental reasons, I
kept that Buster Brown shoe-
box for years, using it to store
envelopes, stamps, pens, pencils
and my beloved kaleidoscope.
I eventually lost it during one
of our many treks up fnd down
the East Coast.

At the end of a year,
I like tp look back,
count my blessings
and give thanks for
whatever the new
year may bring.
The older I get, the more I
think the only real difference we
can make in life is to be grateful.
It's simple, but not always easy.
For my family, perhaps like
yours, this year has been one
of change. It began in that most
dreaded of ways, with the loss
of a loved one. In February, we
buried my husband's father, a
man who'd convinced me, with
the beauty of his character, that
I'd be smart to marry his son.
A few days after his memorial
service, I flew to South Carolina
to speak to preschool teach-
ers in the Spartanburg County
First Steps program. I told them
there is no finer calling, no work
more important than the role
they play in helping children get
a good start in life. And I smiled
to see them nod in agreement.

The calendar has been
packed, right up through
December.
A few nights ago, we went to
see "The Girl with the Dragon
Tattoo." Fearing it might be sold
out, my husband bought tickets
in advance on line. When we got
to the theater, he dropped me in
front and handed me his wallet.
"You might need my credit
card to get the tickets," he said.
"I'll park and meet you inside."
Minutes later, when we were
watching previews, I reached in
my pocket to get his wallet. To
my horror, it wasn't there.
"I'm going to the restroom,"
I whispered. Then I sprinted to


the kiosk where I'd printed the
tickets. No wallet. I dumped out
my purse. No wallet. I took off
my coat and turned the pockets
inside out. No wallet anywhere.
Finally, I went to the ticket
window. "Did anybody by any
chance turn in a wallet?"
The ticket person called the
manager. A long minute later,
the manager showed up smiling
with my husband's wallet.
I kissed him. Someone had
found it on the floor and turned
it in with cash and credit cards
intact. No, he said, they didn't
leave a name or number.
I told you that story to tell you
this: If you think about the year
ahead and wonder what it may
bring, don't worry. Be hopeful.
Things don't always go bad to
worse. Stories don't always end
badly. Some people still do the
right thing. And for that, I am
truly thankful.

THEIR
E W


Colbert

offers

to pay

for S.C.

primary



Stephen Colbert.
The South
Carolina native
who brings us
"The Colbert Report" week-
nights on Comedy Central
has offered to bridge the
gap in the cost of the South
Carolina Republican Primary.
We can't tell if he's kidding
(unlike when we watch his
show) but it's worth consider-
ing, although what he called
his no-strings-attached offer
comes of course with
strings attached.
His first offer, according
to a guest column he wrote
for The State newspaper, was,
$400,000, if the state GOP
would name the primary
"The Colbert Super PAC
South Carolina. Republican
Primary." He also wanted a
non-binding referendum for
the people of South Carolina
to decide if corporations are "
people.
(Republican presidential
candidate Mitt Romney
declared it so; Colbert wants
to see what the people of his
home state think.) Past state
primaries have been party-
Srun and party-paid affairs,
using money raised privately.
But in-2007, the General
Assembly passed a bill
requiring the State Election
Commission to run presiden-
tial primaries, although the
parties kept the privilege of
setting the primary dates and
other details.
During the first half of
this year, Gov. Nikki Haley
opposed the legislature's
effort to keep the funding
of the GOP primary in the'
budget. Haley wanted private
funds used; legislators over-
rode her veto.
It's estimated the primary
will cost $1.2 million. The
state GOP is supposed to
pay the balance left after
the state's contribution of
$680,000. But, objecting to
that plan, four South Carolina
counties filed suit. When
a judge declared their suit
legitimate, the party found
itself once again responsible
for about $500,000 and
declared it wouldn't pick up
the tab, other than the can-
didates' filing fees of $25,000
each.
Enter Colbert.
We read his guest column
several times, seeing his
tongue firmly in his cheek
in some paragraphs, yet
finding at least one that is
all too true: "... Last week I
saw that the South Carolina
GOP has reneged on fund-
ing any part of the primary,
save for the legal minimum
percentage of candidate fil-
ing fees, leaving the finan-
cially strapped counties
on the hook for $500,000.
That's money that counties
need for emergency servic-
es, infrastructure repair and
to complete the wall to keep
out North Carolinians."
OK, we're sure he didn't
mean that last part. Maybe.
But he made a good point
about naming the primary
after him in exchange for
funding: "We would finally
raise democracy to the same
level as the Tostitos Fiesta
Bowl and Kardashian wed-
dings."
Politics does seem about
that dignified sometimes,
doesn't it?

"Sometimes you'll
give anything just to
make it stop!"... says
Dr. Santiago Rodriguez
about digestive distress.
He ought to know.
After all, he's a world-
renowned expert on
medicinal botany.
"You can see the
tortured look on f
people's faces as
they talk about the
scorching burn of
stomach acid. Or
being so constipated
you almost pass out Dr.
from the pain." And wor
there's nothing worse
than being "kept
prisoner to your bathroom"
because of chronic diarrhea.
It's a nightmare for people who
suffer from it. But now, your
stomach problems could be over.
And the secret is in the healing aloe
plant.
FINALLY THERE'S HOPE..
At first, 'the thought of drinking
Aloe vera might make some
people back away. But in fact, this
delicious "digestion cocktail" is
doing amazing things for people
who suffer with stomach problems
--- even if they've had them for
years. Here's how it works...


Isi, WoththeRisk

STOMACH AGONY


Your stomach naturally produces
acid so strong, it can dissolve an
aluminum spoon in just 30 min-
utes! And when excess acid es-
capes into your esophagus, throat
and stomach lin-
ing... It unleashes
S the scorching pain
of acid reflux,
heartburn, ulcers
fy'> and more misery.
Add the problems
of stress, and
"all hell breaks
loose."
Dr. Rodriguez explains... the
"AloeCure can work genuine
miracles. It buffers high acid levels
with amazing speed. So your
stomach feels completely at ease
just moments after drinking it."
In fact, it could wipe out stomach
pain, discomfort, and frantic runs
to the bathroom.
UNTIL NOW, LITTLE
COULD BE DONE...
But "AloeCure can help
virtually anyone. Even people
with chronic stomach pain can
feel better right away," says Dr.
Rodriguez. And what's really
exciting is AloeCure aids in
keeping your digestive tract
healthy, so intestinal distress
stops coming back.
DIGESTION DEFENDER #1:
BALANCES STOMACH ACID
Your first line of defense is
calcium malate. This natural acid
buffer instantly sends stomach acid
levels plunging. And holds acid
levels down so they don't return!
DIGESTION DEFENDER #2:
INSTANT, SOOTHING RELIEF
AloeCure is brimming with
polysaccharides, this "wonder"
compound that gently coats the

Id-famous research chemist


throat, esophagus and stomach,
carrying instant relief to cells
scorched by excess acid.
HERE'S WHAT
DOCTORS ARE SAYING!
AloeCure is backed by important
scientific studies that confirm... aloe
calms stomach acid and allows your
body to heal itself.
Dr. Liza Leal, M.D. says, "That's
why I recommend it to patients
who suffer from heartburn, acid
reflux, ulcers, and irritable bowel
syndrome.."
Dr. Santiago Rodriguez agrees.
"Just two ounces of .AloeCure
reduces the acids(in-your ,stomach.
by ten times.",
Francisco DeWeever, a
Certified Nutritional Micros-
copist, "My patients report
their IBS, Crohn's-Colitis,
Constipation, Acid Reflux
and a host of other digestive
problems have all but disap-
peared."

USERS ARE THRILLED!
E "All the problems I
had with my stomach
are gone. Completely
gone.
-Phillip Brown;

"AloeCure helped with
my bloating, my diges-
tion, even my sleep. I
can really see a big dif-
ference."
-Florence Vazquez,

and not worry about
sitting up all night with
heartburn because of
it."

The Photo Elicitation Project is
a project that was initiated by the
Fort White Middle and High School
Student Working Against Tobacco
(SWAT) club over a year ago. The
SWAT youth chose this project as a
way to raise awareness of a product
that feel that is targeting them and
their peers. Since then other SWAT
chapters from Richardson Middle
School, Lake City Middle School
and Columbia High School have as-
sisted in the effort. This project was
cumbersome and the SWAT mem-
bers spent countless hours attending
training, taking photos, conducting
interviews and compiling data.
The youth attended a training in
Gainesville with other SWAT youth
from around the state last year. At
the training kids learned how to align
products and take pictures. They also
learned how to conduct interviews
and take notes on what the inter-
viewee was saying. The training also
forced the kids to make decisions
where to conduct interviews for the
project.
The SWAT youth went to various
area stores and took photos, with the
managers' approval, of flavored and
non-flavored tobacco products. They
used these photos for the interview
process.
The interview process took place
at public events such as the Florida
Gateway Pro Rodeo and the flea mar-
ket. The interview would start with
the youth showing a set of 3 pictures
of flavored tobacco products or non-
flavored tobacco products. Then they
would ask a set of questions. One
outcome to note from the project was
that the interviewees would notice the
colors and flavors when asked how
these products appeal to youth. Also
78% of the participants answered very
concerned that flavored tobacco prod-
ucts was sold in our stores compared
to just 15% of non-flavored tobacco
products.
The Columbia County SWAT chap-
ters used this project as an education-
al tool to raise awareness to people
who did not realize all of the flavors
that target youth. They also will use
the results of this survey to go in
front.of decision makers and ask for a
resolution asking the tobacco retailers
to voluntarily cease the sell of flavored
tobacco products

Columbia well
represented
throughout NCAA.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
Former Columbia High
players are making the
grade at the collegiate level
as five former Tigers played
college football this fall.
Timmy Jernigan, Brach
Bessant, Levi McFatter,
Robert Hartley and Tiger
Powell all competed on the
collegiate level.
Fort White High's Alex
Gilmer is also enrolled at
Washburn University.
Jernigan leads the way
as a freshman. He had
13 solo tackles for the
Florida State Seminoles last
season. Jernigan finished
with 27 total tackles, six
tackles for loss and 21k
sacks.
Powell was given the
Bobcat Award for the 2011
season at Jones County
Junior College. The award
is given to someone who
typifies everything coaches
expect in a student-athlete,
ranging from leadership to
hard work to dedication and
to a commitment to excel-
lence. The award is voted
upon by members of the
Bobcat football team for the
2011 season.
The running back fin-
ished with 182 carries for
897 yards and 15 touch-
downs. It was good enough
for third in the Mississippi
Association of Community
and Junior Colleges.
Bessant finished with
two solo tackles in his
second year at Troy
University.
McFatter was the start-
ing center for Chaleston
Southern this season and
Robert Hartley played for
Florida A&M, which fin-
ished with a 7-4 record this
season.

Tigers knock
off Clearwater
Christian, 76-37.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
If Columbia High had any
rust from the Christmas
holiday it didn't show as the
Tigers picked up an easy
win in the first round of
the Hitchcock's Challenge
at Santa Fe High in Alachua
on Tuesday.
The Tigers jumped out
to an early lead and never
looked back in the 76-37
win.
Columbia was hot from
the start as the Tigers
led 21-4 after the first
quarter.
By halftime, the Tigers
were working their way
toward a running clock.
Columbia built a 44-17 half-
time edge.
Columbia got the clock
running in the second
half and finished with the
39-point victory.
Javontae Foster led the
way with his best shooting
performance of the season.


Foster was 6-of-6 from the
field and led the Tigers with
17 points in the contest.
Two other Tigers fin-
ished in double-digits
as Marcus Amerson fin-
ished with 16 points and
Morris Marshall finished
with 10.
Monte Tisdale finished
with eight points in the con-
test.
"It's a game that we
should have won and we
did," Columbia coach
Horace Jefferson said after
the game. "Now, I don't
want to take anything away
from the play of Foster. The
kids went out there and
they played hard."
Columbia (7-2) moves on
to the second round where
the Tigers will take on the
winner of Hawthorne and
West Gadsden at 6 p.m.
today.
"We expect much more
of a challenge," Jefferson
said. "With either oppo-
nent, we expect a chal-
lenge. West Gadsden is
a good peremiter-shoot-
ing team and Hawthorne
relies on their speed and
quickness."

Christmas decorations for LGA


The LGA gave each lady
a decorated Christmas ball
for use in a "least putts"
match. Anyone who failed
to putt with the holiday ball
had to add a stroke to their
score.
Some players forgot to
use the designated ball, but
it didn't affect the outcome
of the contest.
Caroline Stevens fin-
ished with 29 putts for a
one-stroke win over Anita
West. Katrina Counts was
in third with 32.
Any score on the plus
side took home a piece of
the Saturday blitz.
Jonathan Allen claimed
the A flight title with the
day's best score of .+4.
Steve Patterson and Steve
Thomas split second place
money with +2.
The B flight ended in a
first-place tie between Russ
Adams and Jerry West at
+1. Eli Witt and Tom Wade
pulled their points on the
nose to earn a second-place
tie.
Six players divided th'e

Gators open bowl practice injured


By MARK LONG
Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE -
Florida arrived at the Gator
Bowl without running back
Jeff Demps and still search-
ing for two key positions on
Will Muschamp's coaching
staff.
Demps missed the team's
first practice Tuesday at
Jacksonville University to
attend to a personal matter,
Muschamp said. Second on
the team with 539 yards
rushing and a team-high
six touchdowns, Demps is
expected to join the Gators
on Wednesday. Receiver
Deonte Thompson missed
practice because of an ill-
ness.
Center Dan Wenger
and linebacker Lerentee
McCray were lim-
ited in practice.
Muschamp expected
Wenger (ankle) to play Jan.
2 against Ohio State, but
called McCray (shoulder)
doubtful.
Muschamp also denied
reports by two coaching
websites that he has hired
Jeff Dillman to be the team's
strength and conditioning
coordinator.
Muschamp and Dillman
worked together at LSU
in 2003 and 2004. Dillman
is currently the head of
physical conditioning at

the IMG Performance
Institute in Bradenton, a
position he has held since
2009.
But Muschamp said he
hasn't offered the job to
anyone, adding that the


same goes for the offensive
coordinator position.
"I haven't hired any-
body,". he said. "I've talked
to a lot of people at the
strength position and the
offensive coordinator's


position. When I make the
hire, everybody will know.
But no one has been hired.
No one has been offered a
job Yet. So, that's it"
Former strength 'coach
Mickey Marotti left Florida


after seven years to join
Urban Meyer at Ohio State.
Former offensive coordina-
tor Charlie Weis left to take
fthe head coaching job at
Kansas.
"I still have people I


want to talk to," Muschamp
said. "I've talked to prob-
ably six, seven eight people
so far. Again some people
over Christmas. Some
people this week I plan on
talking to. Then after the
bowl game. I've never put
a timetable on it because
it's the right fit for Florida;
it's going to be the best
decision for Florida. It's
an important hire, both of
them are. I've talked to mul-
tiple people on both situa-
tions."
Running backs coach
Brian White will call plays
against the Buckeyes, and
Muschamp reiterated that
he is being considered for
the job on a full-time basis.
White has been an offensive
coordinator at Wisconsin
and Syracuse.
"I don't think there's any
question that being a play-
caller for a long time, to
have somebody in the room
who has done it before,"
Muschamp said. "Everyone
has great ideas until they've
sat in that chair. Then
they understand the dif-
ference. They see the big
picture. They understand
all the things that go with
running an offense or
running a defense. No ques-
tion his experience was
very critical in our growth
as an offense as we move
forward."

Denver Broncos' Tim Tebow (15) looks to throw downfield against the Buffalo Bills during
the second half of an NFL football game in Orchard Park, N.Y. on Saturday.


Tebow set to take on


Chiefs in Orton's return


By ARNIE STAPLETON
Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.
- The wheels have come
off in Denver.
We're not talking about
the Broncos' season,
although it's teetering with
two straight ugly losses.
All they have to do to end
their long playoff drought
is beat their former quar-
terback Kyle Orton and
the Kansas City Chiefs on
Sunday.
Their fix-it list which
includes the pass rush, the
turnover differential and
sputtering offense grew,
by one item Tuesday.
Guard Zane Beadles
was toying around with
his radio controlled car
fresh out of the box and it
slammed into a teammate's
locker, leaving the right
front wheel bowed.
Adam Grant, who had
purchased the $370 hobby-
grade car as part of the line-
men's white elephant gift
exchange, shook his head
in disgust, while fellow
tackle Orlando Franklin
reminded Beadles that the
machine, which can reach
70 mph when modified, is
an outdoor toy.
"That was the first time
I played with it," Beadles
lamented. "Its been charg-
ing all weekend."
Beadles, who majored
in mechanical engineering
at Utah, figured if he can
build robots, he could fix
the remote control car that
he'd enjoyed for all of 45
seconds. Grant wasn't so
sure and gave him direc-
tions to a hobby shop to


buy some replacement
parts "that aren't cheap."
The Broncos' ability to
fix their other issues will
go a long way toward
determining if Denver
makes the playoffs for the
first time since 2005.
Players came in for con-
ditioning and classroom
work Tuesday on the eve of
their final padded practice
of the regular season as
they prepare for Sunday's
showdown that pits Orton
and Tim Tebow.
Orton won the Broncos'
job during training camp,
but relinquished it after
Denver stumbled to a 1-
4 start He was released
last month and the Chiefs
snatched him off the waiv-
er wire. That saved Denver
$2.6 million in salary but
could ultimately cost it a
trip to the playoffs this
weekend.
The Broncos, (8-7) are
trying to avoid another
December meltdown like
the ones that cost them
playoff berths in 2008 and
'09 under former coaches
Mike Shanahan and Josh
McDaniels.
"You don't get that
chance too often, to win
one game and make it
to the playoffs," receiver
Eddie Royal said. "And a
lot of us know the feeling
of watching the playoffs at
home. We don't want that
feeling, so we've got to do
everything in our power
to make sure that's not us
this year."
The Broncos are down-
playing Orton's return
to the city where he was
never really loved, going


12-21 after coming over
from Chicago in the much-
maligned Jay Cutler trade.
"I mean, I love Kyle, but
I couldn't care less," said
Beadles, whose locker was
5 feet away from Orton's.
"It's the Broncos vs. the
Chiefs. We've got to beat
the Chiefs to get in the play-
offs. And it doesn't matter
who's on their team."
Who will have the advan-
tage is a matter of great
debate in Denver. But wide
receiver Eric Decker said he
wasn't so sure Orton could
give the Chiefs many help-
ful tips because the Broncos
have undergone a massive
makeover since he was their
starting quarterback.
"I think being with this
team through training
camp and the first couple
of weeks of the season,
obviously he knows what
we ran early on, but we've
made adjustments on both
sides of the ball," Decker
explained. "Offensively,
there may be some things
he tries to give, whether
in protection or whatnot,
but again, we've changed
as a team and that's not
something we're going to
worry about."
Added tailback Willis
McGahee: "No, I'm not wor-
ried about it. I don't think
our defense is worried
about it We know Kyle's
a good quarterback. But
we're going to go out there
and play Bronco football."
Which, to the oft-injured
McGahee, means running
the ball like the Broncos
did in their last game
against Kansas City on
Nov. 13.

A look back at 2011


with tales from the tour


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE -
Mike Tuten has spent the
last 20 years on the North
Shore of Oahu shaping
surf boards. He joined his
brother, Titleist rep Chris
Tuten, for a round of golf
on the Plantation Course at
Kapalua at the start of the
year.
Walking down the sev-
enth fairway, the Pacific
Ocean on the horizon,
Tuten said he found a lot of
similarities between surfing
and golf.
"It's all about controlling
your inner self and enjoying
the environment around
you," Tuten said.
That made sense to Adam
Scott, who does a fair bit of
surfing.
Ditto for Geoff Ogilvy,
who described himself as
a "splash-in-the-water kind
of surfer."
"A lot of surfing is just
sitting on the back of your
board and just enjoying the
place you're at," Ogilvy said.
"You can do it with friends
or on your own. Some of
the appeal is that you're
out there on your own with
golf, too. Surfing is similar.
A lot of guys who go surf-
ing would be those types of
guys who like to get out and
do their own thing."
For a technical answer,
Kelly Slater weighed in.
"Physically, there's not
a lot of similarities," Slater
said at the Pebble Beach
National Pro-Am. "When


you surf, you do twist your
body. You twist your shoul-
ders and bring the board to
where your shoulders are.
When you catch a wave, you
don't want to be thinking
about the crowd, cameras,
how pretty it is. You want to
have a calm mind when you
take off on a wave."
It all sounded good in
theory until the ques-
tion was posed to Ernie
Els on the range at
Waialae.
Are there any similarities
between golf and surfing?
"No,' I don't agree with
that," Els said.
He pointed to the 30-foot
palm trees lining both sides
of the range to make his
argument.
"You see a wave that big
coming at you, I don't see
how you can enjoy your
environment," Els said. "I
would be trying to get the
hell out of there. No, golf is
not like surfing. You don't
get killed playing golf."
The 2011 season began
with waves crashing along
the shores of Maui and
Oahu. Rory McIlroy wiped
out at the Masters and had
the ride of his life at the
U.S. Open. Luke Donald is
riding a wave that doesn't
seem to end. And late in the
year, Tiger Woods showed
signs of paddling back out
to sea.
Along the way, there were
plenty of other moments
that went beyond birdies
and bogeys.

Saturday at the Pebble


Beach National Pro-Am is
when CBS Sports focuses
primarily on the celebrities
in the field, who don't always
take golf or the inter-
views all that seriously.
David Feherty attempted to
interview comedian George
Lopez, who essentially
spent his time in front of
the camera making fun of
the Irishman.
Feherty was riding his
bike along 17 Mile Drive the
next morning, still thinking
about how Lopez buried
him on TV, when he decid-
ed it was time for revenge.
It was 6 a.m. and he knew
the house where Lopez was
staying, so Feherty went to
the front door and began
ringing the bell. Over and
over and over.
No answer.
He took out his phone
and called Lopez, and the
comedian answered with a
groggy voice.
"George! Why aren't
you answering the door?"
Feherty told him.
Lopez informed him that
his door bell wasn't ring-
ing. Just at that moment,
Feherty heard another
groggy voice, slightly
perturbed, through the
intercom.
"Who is this?"
Feherty froze. He was
at the wrong house. Lopez
was in the one on the other
side of the road.
"I was looking at him
across the street," Lopez
said. "I think I've still got a
picture of it. He looked like
a wet rat"

Man with roving eye online

needs meds to stay grounded


BRING OKAY,
IT ON! THIS GOT
WEIRD.

DEAR ABBY: My mar-
riage has been on the
rocks since 2008, when I
caught my husband talking
to other girls online. He
swore he would never do
it again and I trusted him,
only for it to happen again
and again. We have a 2-
year-old and I'm pregnant
with our second child.
' He has now placed
another ad online stating
that he's a single dad. I
am torn. He keeps telling
me he loves me and wants
only me, and he doesn't
know what's wrong with
him. He is bipolar and
not taking meds for it. He
promised this time he will
get help and try to get bet-
ter.
This is the fifth time he
has placed an ad or chat-
ted with other girls online.
I don't know if I should
call it quits or keep trying.
I love him and want us
to be a family, but I don't
know how much more
I can take. TORN IN
CALIFORNIA
DEAR TORN: Because
you still love your hus-
band, make his taking his
medication a condition
of your continuing the
marriage. He needs to
be willing to prove to you
that he wants you to stay.
If he won't do that, then
you will have to decide if
this is the way you want
to spend the rest of your
life. And please, for your
sake and that of your kids,
don't have more children
with him until you're sure


DEAR ON THE
SIDELINES: You have
assessed your situation
correctly. You ARE shar-
ing only part of Wayne's
life, and won't be moving
forward until his adult
daughters accept you OR
Wayne asserts himself.
Wayne should be ashamed
of himself. He should
have introduced you to
his daughters when you
started living together. As
his partner, you should not
have been excluded from
any family functions. As
long as Wayne does noth-
ing, nothing will change.

DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band and I have worked
hard and spent our money
carefully. We are almost
ready to pay off our home.
I would love to have a
"mortgage-burning" party,
but I'm worried about
showing off in this uncer-
tain economy. Can we have
this party, or should we
just make our last payment
and be quiet? THRILLED
IN SAN JOSE
DEAR THRILLED:
Taking into consideration
that many people have not
been as fortunate as you in
spite of the fact that they
too worked hard, lived fru-
gally and followed all the
rules, my advice is to have
a quiet celebration with
your husband and forgo
the party.

ARIES (March 21-April
19): Put your money in a
safe place. You may feel
like spending, but paying
too much for something
or purchasing something
you don't need will bring
depression. Focus on
friends, family and loving
the people you like to hang
with. ****
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): You may want to offer
assistance, but you are
likely to be taken for grant-
ed if you do. Back off and
do things that will reflect
your own advancement in
the coming months. Now
is the time for self-gratifica-
tion. **
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): You'll have excel-
lent ideas and should
work toward a plan that
will improve your profes-
sional life. A responsible
approach to something you
have to offer will interest
an entrepreneurial person
who wants to help. Love is
highlighted. *****
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Don't make changes
based on what someone
else does. Take a wait-and-
watch approach to any-
thing that could go either
way. Spend time fixing up
your digs or preparing to
make a change to your liv-
ing arrangements that will
cut your costs. ***


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Put your heart and soul
into your personal life
and the relationships that
are important to you. Do
something special for a
friend, lover or relative.
Changing your surround-
ings will brighten your
day. Shopping will lead to a
must-have purchase. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept
22): Emotions will rise to
the surface, especially if
you have to deal with diffi-
cult co-workers or a minor
health problem in you or a
pet. You will make far bet-
ter decisions if you keep
a low profile and refuse to
become upset. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct
22): Try something new
and enjoy the company of
those you love. You will.
learn a lot about who you
are and what you really
want A new outlook will
help you move in a direc-
tion more beneficial per-
sonally, emotionally and
professionally. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Trust in what you see,
not what you hear. Not
everyone will have your
best interests at heart.
Confide only in people who
have backed you in the


past, Don't let someone's
uncertainty stand in your
way. **
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Reuniting with
someone from your past
will make your imagination
run wild. Don't just think
about what you would like
to say or do; make an offer
or a suggestion and see
what happens. You have
nothing to lose and every-
thing to gain. ****
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Go over your
plans. Look at your assets
and liabilities, making note
of the changes you want to
make. Open your home to
friends who can contribute
to your life emotionally,
physically, professionally
and financially. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Dress up or
spend time updating your
look. Love is highlighted,
and doing something with
someone you think highly
of will brighten your day.
Your charm will help you
get your way and lead to a
new beginning. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): A surprise is head-
ing your way. Don't pry. A
change in status or posi-
tion may not be welcome
at first, but in the end you
will realize how beneficial
the unfolding circumstanc-
es will be for you. ***

Wayne and I have been

Home show looking to be bigger than ever


From staff reports
The local Rotary Club is
preparing to break records
at their big upcoming
fundraiser.
The 9th annual North
Florida Home & Patio
Show, sponsored by the
Rotary Club of Lake City
- Downtown, will be March
3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and March 4 from 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds.
The Home & Patio Show
is a one stop shopping spot
according to Mike Gordon,
chairman.
This year there will be
80 to 90 different busi-
nesses at the Show.
"The showroom comes
to you," he said. 'There's
something to appeal
to everybody. We have
unique businesses that you
won't find anywhere else."
This is also the first
year that the North
Florida Home & Patio
Show will not be com-
peting with other home
shows in Gainesville and
Jacksonville the same
weekend. This means
there will be more busi-
nesses from outside areas
as well as local vendors.
"It's a lot of fun," said
Gordon. "It's meant to be a
family event"
Both admission and
parking are free to the
public for the event
According to Gordon,
on average, 10 to 12 thou-
sand people attend the,
Home & Patio Show annu-

ally, and their biggest year
there were 16,000 people
in attendance. Gordon said
they are expecting a large
turnout this year.
All proceeds will go to
local charities. "It's the


only home and patio show
where the proceeds go to
charity," Gordon said.
He said the most the
North Florida Home &
Patio Show has ever raised
for one show is $25,000.


"I'm hoping we're going
to break all vendor records
this year," he said.
Gordon said the prepa-
ration for the Home &
Patio Show is completed
in two phases. The first
phase allows returning
vendors to apply for a
space, and the second


phase allows new vendors
to apply for a space.
According to Gordon,
the North Florida Home
& Patio Show offers larger
spaces at lower costs than
other home shows offer.
"Its a win for us, and it's
a win for the community,"
he said.

Show, call Mike at 623-
