Republican voters going into Florida's pres-

new poll shows. -
Romney was favored by 38 percent com-
pared with Gingrich's 29 percent in a
random telephone survey of 580 likely -
Florida Republican voters, the Quinnipiac
(Conn.) University Polling Institute report-
ed Friday. The results were closer to a Jan. Romney
9 poll by Quinnipiac that showed Romney Romney


was favored 36-24 over
Gingrich. One earlier this
week had Romney up just
36-34 over Gingrich.
The survey was con-
ducted between Tuesday
- the day after a debate in
Tampa and Thursday,


when a debate was held in Jacksonville.
"With the debates now over, Gingrich
will need some other way to reverse the
tide that appears to be going against him,"
said Peter Brown, Quinnipiac's assistant
polling director. "With four days before
Election Day, there is time for another

cleared a House committee

congressional dominance in

He said he was disap-
pointed they would criticize
the Legislature's maps yet

panel unanimously rejected

"It's a frankly unfortunate

probably a' legal, stunt,"
Weatherford said.

Kotter 'Sweathog' Hegyes dies at 60


METUCHEN, N.J.
R obert Hegyes, the actor
Best known for playing
Jewish Puerto Rican stu-
dent Juan Epstein on the.
970s TV show "Welcome
Back Kotter" has died. He was 60.
The Flynn & Son Funeral Home
in Fords, N.J., said it was informed
of Hegyes' death Thursday by the
actor's family.
A spokesman at JFK Medical
Center in Edison, N.J., told the Star-
Ledger newspaper that Hegyes, of
Metuchen, arrived at the hospital
Thursday morning in full cardiac
arrest and died.
Hegyes was appearing on
Broadway in 1975 when he audi-
tioned for "Kotter," a TV series about
a teacher who returns to the inner-
city New York school of his youth to
teach a group of irreverent remedial
students nicknamed the "Sweathogs."
They included the character Vinnie
Barbarino, played by John Travolta.
The show's theme song, performed
by John Sebastian, became a pop hit
Hegyes also appeared on many
other TV series, including "Cagney &
Lacey."

Friend says on 911 call Demi
Moore was convulsing
LOS ANGELES Demi Moore
.smoked something before she was
-?rushed to the hospital on Monday
night and was convulsing and "semi-.
conscious, barely," according to a call-
er on a frantic 911 recording released
Friday by Los Angeles fire officials.
The woman tells emergency opera-
.tors that Moore, 49, had been "having
issues lately."
"Is she breathing normal?" the
'operator asks.
, "No, not so normal. More kind of
,shaking, convulsing, burning up," the
-friend says as she'hurries to Moore's


Demi Moore
side, on the edge of panic.
The recording captures the 10 min-
utes it took paramedics to arrive as
friends gather around the collapsed
star and try to comfort her as she
trembles and shakes.
Another woman is next to Moore as
the dispatcher asks if she's responsive.
"Demi, can you hear me?" she asks.
'Yes, she's squeezing hands. ... She
can't speak."
When the operator asks what
Moore ingested or smoked, the friend
replies, but the answer was redacted.
"Some'form of ... and then she
smoked something. I didn't really see.
She's been having some issues lately
with some other stuff. So I don't know
what she's been taking or not," the
friend says.
The city attorney's office advised
the fire department to redact details


about medical conditions and sub-
stances to comply with federal medical
privacy rules.
"She smoked something. It's not
marijuana. It's similar to incense," the
friend says to the 911 operator.

Stars cover Dylan songs for
Amnesty International
NASHVIILE, Tenn. Anyone
who ever doubted the transformative
power of Bob Dylan's music need only
look to Ke$ha.
Yes, Ke$ha.
The irreverent pop star known for
singing about brushing her teeth with
. "a bottle of Jack" turns poignant while
covering a song from one of music's
great lyricists on the new four-disc
"Chimes of Freedom: The Songs
of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of
Amnesty International." The project
features 75 newly recorded Dylan
songs by 80 artists, including Adele,
Sting, Sugarlarid, Elvis Costello, hip-
' hop artist Knaan and others to sup-
port the human rights organization.
The album will be available interna-
tionally on Jan. 30.
Ke$ha is one of the more unlikely
stars to contribute to the compila-
tion, released Tuesday. The pop star
defined by party anthems like 'Tik
Tok" and "Your Love Is My Drug"
took on Dylan's "Don't Think Twice,
It's Alright" As she found herself
alone in her bedroom for the first time
in months, the words of the song -
about a person bidding goodbye to a
lover took on a new, deeply person-
al meaning. She realized she was say-
ing goodbye to her carefree, former
life before big hits and world tours
brought on pressure and priorities.
She broke down as she began singing,
and the emotion is captured on the
record.

Lauren Ogburn grabs Southside Idol title


TONY BRITr/Lake City Reporter
Pictured are Southside Idol participants Kara Marie Compo
(from left), first runner up; Southside Idol winner Lauren
Ogburn; and second runner up Nikole Tquana Bryant.


By TONY BRITT t
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Fourteen local divas took
the stage Saturday night, fill-
ing the Columbia County
School Board Administrative
Complex Auditorium with atti-
tude, emotion and spirit
The way they choose to
express themselves was
through their vocal abilities
which drew many standing
ovations throughout the eve-
ning as the competitors sang
Top 40, Gospel and Country
songs in hopes of capturing
the second annual Southside


Idol title.
. When the applause ended
and with all the voices
rested, Lauren Ogburn, a
self described "outgoing"
Columbia High School senior
used her i-voice, stage presence
and personality to claim the
Second Annual Southside Idol
title.
'Tm so ecstatic. It just blows
my mind," Ogburn said of win-
ning the competition. 'Tm just
so happy that I won. It's not
even about winning, it's just
the fact that I went out there
had fun and I won. That's a
double whammy right there."


Second place honors went
to Kara Marie Compo, while
third place went to Nikole
Tquana Bryant
The competition had sev-
eral hundred people in atten-
dance and the special guest for
the event was vocalist Keisha
Jackson.
Jackson, the daughter
of R&B soul singer Millie
Jackson, also performed at the
event
"I think the event was amaz-
ing," she said. "All the contes-
tants had so much talent and
it was such a diverse group of
kids. I love working with kids


anyway, but this was a very
special reason and I'm very
honored to be here and I hope
to come back soon."
Ogburn said she's compet-
ed in several other competi-
tions and it was beneficial to
participate in the Southside
Idol contest because of the
experience she gained.
"It helps me because it gives
me more self confidence," she
said. "Ifs just going to help me
go further and my next step
will probably be that I really
want to try out for American
Idol, honestly and do some-
thing big like that"

and this is 100 percent parti-
sanship."
Floor debate will begin
next Thursday with final
action the following day,
Weatherford said.
The. Senate already has
approved maps for its 40
districts and the state's
27 congressional seats.
The panel accepted the
Senate-passed map for its
chamber. The Senate like-
wise intends to accept the
House-drawn map for that
chamber's 120 districts.
The committee also
agreed to a proposed com-
promise on the congressio-
nal map. Weatherford said
he's confident the Senate
will accept it.
While the Florida League
of Women Voters, National
Council of La Raza and


Common Cause of Florida
declined to testify, the Fair
District advocates submit-
ted an 11-page letter. It'
outlines their proposals
and why they believe the
.Legislature's. maps violate
the two state constitutional
amendment voters adopt-
ed in 2010.
Both Fair Districts
amendments, one each
covering the legislature
and Congress, prohibit
intentionally drawing dis-
tricts to favor or disfavor
incumbents or a political
party. They also protect
the rights of minorities to
elect representatives of
their choosing and require
districts to be compact and
use existing political and
geographical boundaries
Where feasible.

those wishing to attend.
Both the House and Senate
have had rules for years
that say that lawmakers
cannot ask for donations
while they are holding their
annual session and deciding
whether to vote up or down
on hundreds of bills.
The Senate rule, however,
says that lawmakers cannot
ask anyone directly or
indirectly to give money
to their own legislative cam-.
paigns, to a political party or


to a political committee.
After- getting asked to
attend the event, Sen. Nan
Rich, D-Sunrise and Senate
Democratic leader, asked
for Meyer to give an opin-
ion.
Meyer on Thursday sent
a letter to Rich stating that
"senators attending the
reception would be, by their
very presence, indirectly
soliciting contributions on
behalf of the Democratic
Party."

FOOD: USDA promotes 'eat local' movement

Continued From Page 1A


Dicks, who owns the store with his
wife, Cindy.
As fifth generation farmers and
ranchers, the Dicks turned to direct
sales in an effort to keep the fam-
ily farm productive for their children,
sixth generation Florida farmers.
Fifth Generation Farms received
USDA funding in 2009 to build the
market and launch their North Florida
Natural Black Angus brand.
The store has involved 50 local
businesses and employed 12 people,
Cindy Dicks said.
As second in command. Merrigan
oversees the day-to-day operations
of the USDA and heads the $149
billion budget process. She serves
on President Barack Obama's
Management Council to improve
accountability and performance
across the federal government. In
2010 she was named one of the 100
most influential people in the world by
Time Magazine.
Merrigan said she would "go back
to Washington emboldened by some-
thing that is right on."
"It's really nice to come here to this
beautiful retail establishment and see
farmers showcased," she said.
Merrigan said agriculture faces a
huge problem, the aging American
farmer. "Who is going to repopulate
our working land?" she said.
The majority of farm operators are
between 45 and 64 years old, accord-
ing to a 2007 Census of Agriculture.
The fastest growing group of farm
operators are 65 and older.
'To see three generations in this
room is just really inspiring," she
said.
After attending a conference on
small farms, Delvey and Cindy Dicks
applied for a USDA Value Added
Producer Grant. In 2009 they were
awarded $197,560 to create the North


Florida Natural Black Angus brand,
which is raised on green pastures
and fed natural grains with no added
hormones, antibiotics or animal by-
products. It is slaughtered locally at
Nettles Beef Processing facility and
sold at the Dicks' store. The store also
features local and regional farm prod-
ucts sold directly to consumers.
They credit the UF/IFAS Columbia
County Extension for hosting the
conference and keeping the business
informed about technology and new
programs.
"If it hadn't been for the Small
Farms Conference ... we wouldn't
have found out about the resources
available to us," he said.
When introduced to producers
whose products are sold at Fifth
Generation Farms, "I could see all
the faces tied to this food," Merrigan
said.
To support small farmers, Merrigan
said the USDA in August reviewed
and revised regulations in an effort
to streamline operations and be less
burdensome for farmers.
This month the USDA launched
tools on its Website, making it easier
to get information on energy funding.
On Saturday in February, Fifth
Generation Farms will bring in local
food producers for demonstrations
and educational events for their
Celebrate Fresh From Florida cam-
paign. Merrigan's visit served as an
official kick-off for the events, Cindy
Dicks said. "We really do believe agri-
culture is the future."
Delvey Dicks said the Nettles pro-
cessing plant is "critical to the success
of our venture."
"Our hope is not only for our family
farm to benefit but other farms also,"
he said.
"I'm glad we can be a service to
each other," said Billy Nettles, presi-


dent of Nettles Sausage. "It all just fell
together."
Three generations have made
Nettles Sausage in Columbia County
since it opened in 1945. The Nettles
processing plant opened in February
2011, he said.
The plant works with ranchers with
large and small herds across Florida,
he said. Often small ranchers have. a
hard time finding a slaughterhouse.
Nettles said he often works with youth
groups who may only have a few ani-
mals to slaughter. "We've just always
been the little guy," he said.
C.W. Phillips, a Gainesville farmer,
said selling his beef and pork at Fifth
Generation Farms for the past six
months has helped increase his busi-
ness, C & J Farms.
A retired Alachua County Sheriff's
deputy, Phillips said the key to being
a' small farmer is to start small and
stay focused. Phillips said he bought
materials a little at a time while still a
deputy, knowing a bank wouldn't lend
him the money.
Starting with just two cows, Phillips
said he currently has 50 cows and
75 hogs. He hopes to have 300 hogs
soon. He also sells his meat to Ward's
Supermarket in Gainesville.
Small farmers and ranchers make
the market competitive, keep prices
down and offer consumers choices, he
said. As a second generation farmer,
"my heart was already in the earth."
"It's like I said years ago, America
has grown in various areas by we
still have got to eat," he said. 'The
farmer is the backbone of America."
On Thursday Merrigan spoke
at the University of Florida to dis-
cuss the local foods program. Later
Friday she held a press confer-
ence in Jacksonville on President
Barack Obama's State of the Union
address.

Fed sees


a slow


but sure


recovery

Make no mistake:
The economy is
recovering, just
not as fast as
anybody, includ-
ing the Federal Reserve Board,
would like. We still may be
three to four years away from
anything that looks like a full
recovery.
After a two-day policy meet-
ing, the Fed chairman, Ben
Bernanke, announced the cen-
tral bank would keep its bench-
.mark interest rate near zero,
where it has been the last three
years, until late 2014. It came
out that many on the board
don't see rates rising until 2015.
This is great news for borrow-
ers, as the Fed intends for the
stimulative effect, but grim news
for seniors who had been count-
ing on-interest on their savings
to help fund their retirement
The decision is not cast in
stone. Bernanke called it a "best
guess," saying the Fed's ability
to forecast that far out only
three years is limited.
Presidents show no such
modesty. They routinely claim
in their annual budgets that
they can forecast 10 years out -
unless they don't like what they
see. Then, as President George
W. Bush did ene year, they
claim to be able to see only five
years out
Instead, the.nation's economic
prospects are brightening. The
index of leading economic indi-
cators rose in December for
the third straight month. Hiring
is up, manufacturing is up, the
stock market is rising and even
housing is showing a faint pulse.
The Fed expects that after
three more years of flat rates,
the unemployment rate now
8.2 percent will decline to a
relatively healthy 6.7 percent
and economic growth will reach
an also-healthy rate of 4 percent
A European recession could
be a drag on the recovery, but
unlike the reckless events that
led to the Great Recession of
2008 at least it would not be
something we inflicted on our-
selves.

How can social conservatives


embrace. Newt Gingrich like this?


Really, social conser-
vatives? Really?
I thought that, to
us, private lives mat-
ter and character
counts. Oh, and the media are
supposed to go after a candi-
date's history when it might tell
us something about the person.
Of course, let's not forget what
a terrible thing it is to employ.
a "nuts and sluts" strategy
to automatically undermine
women accusing a candidate of
sordid behavior.
All true, by the way. Unless
its one of "opur" guys?
That was my reaction to
,hearing the audience "whoop-
whoop" in solidarity with Newt
Gingrich's combative, self-righ-
teous indignation in response to
CNN's John King in last week's
debate in South Carolina.
The question, of course,
was about ex-wife Marianne's
claim that when they were mar-
ried, Gingrich asked her for
an "open marriage"'to accom-
modate an affair with Callista
Bisek, whom Gingrich later
left Marianne for. And married.
Gingrich acknowledges that
that affair with a congressional
staffer (not his own) was tak-
ing place at the same time that
he, as speaker of the House,
oversaw the impeachment of
President Bill Clinton stem-
ming from his own extramarital
affair.
Yeah, yeah, supposedly the
latter was about perjury, but
really, it was about the sex.
And Gingrich has the gall to
be shocked by the question? "I
think the destructive, vicious,
negative nature of much of the
news media makes it harder to
govern this country, harder to
attract decent people to run for
public office, and I am appalled
that you would begin a presi-
dential debate with a topic like
that," he said. On it went.
It reminds me of the old com-
edy skit where a man is caught

in bed with another woman by
his wife. He so befuddles things
by indignantly asking "What
woman?" long enough that, in
the end, she's apologizing for
doubting him.
Actually, I'm not so shocked
that Gingrich would go after
King. His reputation for having
an outsized ego is the stuff of
legend. I am shocked, though,
that conservatives would
reward him for his self-righ-
teous attack by jumping to their
feet and cheering him.
Could there be anything
more likely to undermine a
social-conservative agenda?
Yes, the hypocrisy of liberals
and the media is present and
accounted for. Women who
accused President Clinton of
lechery and worse were treated
to the "nuts and sluts" strat-
egy. Later, then-presidential
candidate Barack Obama's
ties to race-baiter Jeremiah
Wright and Vietnam-era radical
Bill Ayers went largely unex-
.amined. In contrast, media
interviews with Marianne
Gingrich hit two days before
the South Carolina primary,
which marked the candidate's
first win in the GOP nomination
sweepstakes. The media are
hopelessly hypocritical.
So what?
Since when does that give
conservatives the right.to be
the same? Those supporting
Gingrich, seemingly standing
with him as he defies those
calling him on his behavior,
should be ashamed of them-
selves. And I thought that even


before I heard some conserva-
tive commentators suggest that.
Marianne, who has said that.
Gingrich has never apologized
to her over his betrayal, might
be kind of, well, you know bit-
ter.
Gingrich was in that spot
to be so questioned by King
because Gingrich put himself
there. I wish he could have
said, "I don't like the question,
but I have it coming. I betrayed
my wife Marianne, and I am
so sorry. I acted in a way that
was breathtakingly risky, and
utterly wrong, I have personally
gone to her and sought her for-
giveness. I so hope she can one
day offer it to me. In any event,
you have every right to ask me
about these matters, and, in
fact, I'm glad you did. Because
now I have an opportunity to
talk to Americans about how I
have changed."
If he had said that, if he had
been able to say that, I would
have applauded him!
But that's not Newt Gingrich.
In fact, he even stubbornly
insisted in a later interview, this
one with Univision, that anyone
who thought his and Clinton's
affairs were comparable has
"a mental synapse missing."
That's because, Gingrich says,
he himself didn't commit per-
jury or otherwise break the
law. And why not keep on the
,attack?, For starters, social con-
servatives at the South Carolina
debate leaped to their feet and
cheered him for essentially say-
ing he shouldn't have to face
his sordid behavior.
I don't know what will hap-
pen to Gingrich and his quest
for the presidency. I do know
that if anyone is looking for
more reason to be cynical
about politics, he or she found
it last week in South Carolina.

TO THE. EDITOR


SJRWD should find solutions


To the Editor:

Monday evening Jan.23,
2012, 6 p.m., a meeting was
held in Lake City to organize
a group dedicated to stop
the reckless flow of water
to Jacksonville's Electric
Authority (JEA). The water
is used for the cooling of
electric generator towers. ,
Also to address the over
permitting on the local level.
The counties of Columbia,
Alachua, Gilchrist, Lafayette,
Madison, Dixie and Hamilton
were represented on some
level.
At the end of the meeting


the new Executive Director of
St. Johns River Water District
(SJRWD) asks to speak. Hans
G. Tanzler III suggested we
spend our money on solu-
tions instead 'of water. We
already know the solution
is for SJRWD to stop issu-
ing permits that affect other
water districts negatively. Has
SJRWD exhausted all their
other options since they do
border the St. Johns River
and the Atlantic Ocean?' So
after issuing permits to JEA
to pump up to 155 million per
day and in the process drain-
ing the rivers, springs, lakes
and wells to historic lows


from another water district,
SJRWD wants to make nice.
He informed us that they are
working on better commu-
nications with the adjoining
water districts in the future.
Since Hans Tanzler is a career
lawyer, he may just be giving
us the advice and warning
that they left no doors open to
appeal any permits in the .past.
SJRWD needs to find their
own solutions, to the lack of
resources available within
their district to support the
permits they have issued.

Obama's

crony

capitalism

resident Obama said
his State of the
ion address that
ne of the American
values that must
be reclaimed is "an economy
where everyone gets a fair
shot, and everyone does their
fair share, and everyone plays
by the same set of rules." For
three years, he and his political
allies have been undermining
this vision. They see govern-
ment as a means of rewarding
their friends and punishing their
enemies. For the Obama circle,
rules apply only to other people.
Obamacare is a growing bur-
den to American businesses, but
not if you have friends in high
places. Mr. Obama's signature
and highly unpopular legisla-
tive achievement was sold as
a measure that would require
shared sacrifice but bring last-
ing benefits to all Americans.
Yet as soon as the law was
implemented, hundreds of waiv-
ers were issued that allowed -
the recipients to duck under
Obamacare requirements. The
vast majority of recipients were
labor-union chapters, large cor-
porations, financial firms and
local governments with strong
Democratic connections. One
in 5 waivers issued in April 2011
went to upscale nightclubs,
bars and hotels in Rep. Nancy
Pelosi's San Francisco district.
Mr. Obama is not even covered
by his own law.
In his speech, Mr. Obama
made the case for bigger gov-
ernment energy programs,
claiming "government support
is critical in helping businesses
get new energy ideas off the
ground." It certainly helps if you
have given money to the Obama
campaign. A CBS News inves-
tigation found that 80 percent
of the $20.5 billion in Energy
Department loans for "green"
energy went to Mr. Obama's top
donors. The half-billion-dollar
government loan guarantee to
the bankrupt solar-panel com-
pany Solyndra is a model of
Obama-style crony capitalism.
At the center of this sweet-
heart deal was oil billionaire
and major Obama backer
.George Kaiser, whose family-
foundation investment fund
was a major stakeholder in
Solyndra. The loan was rushed
through despite warning flags
that it was a risky investment.
When failing Solyndra sought
to restructure'the loan, inves-
tors such as Mr. Kaiser were
put ahead of taxpayers for
recouping their investments.
During the 2008 campaign,
Mr. Obama promised to "end
the abuse of no-bid contracts
once and for all." Don't tell
that to his friends. In May
2011, the pharmaceutical firm
Siga Technologies, headed
by Obama intimate Ronald
Perelman, received a $443
million sole-source, no-bid, no-
questions-asked government
contract for an unnecessary
anti-smallpox pill. Siga previ-
ously had been awarded a $3
billion contract after placing
former Service Employees
International Union boss and
frequent White House visitor
Andy Stern on its board.
Never in modern history
has the U.S. government been
used so extensively as a vehicle
for benefiting political cronies
at the expense of the rest of
us. In his speech, Mr. Obama
said America shouldn't "settle
for a country.where a shrink-
ing number of people do really
well while a growing number
of Americans barely get by."
Given this administration's
rampant favoritism, special
treatment and backroom deals,
restoring fairness is a major
argument against Mr. Obama's
re-election.

FAITH &


VALUES


W hat are the results of sin
in the church? Joshua
7 shows that God-is
cursing and condemn-
ing Jerusalem, the city
of David, those who were His chosen
people, for its sin.
"But the children of Israel commit-
ted a trespass regarding the accursed
things, for Achan the son of Carmi, the
sgn of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the
tribe of Judah, took of the accursed
things; so the anger of the Lord burned
against the children of Israel" (Joshua
7:1)
Not obeying the Word of God is a
recurring and destructive problem in
the history of man's relationship with
God! The problem exists today in the
church. One person or a group of peo--
ples' sin can have a disastrous effect
off a whole body of believers. A good
example is Saul, the first king of Israel;
another Achan, a grandson of Judah.
(Please read Joshua 7:1-26).
To paraphrase the story of the
Israelites crossing the Jordan River and
possessing the land of Canaan; God
told the people, because of the cor-
htipt and brutal ways of the Canaanite
religion, to destroy everything and
everybody. Some of the evils were
prostitution of both sexes; infant sacri-
fice; and, some were mixing many dif-
ferent beliefs into one. These evils are
Why God commanded the Israelites to
destroy everything.
2Much of the trouble that came upon
the people is because they did not do
as God commanded them. We see
here that chastisement can be corpo-
rately (Joshua 7:2-9). We learn that if
open sin is allowed in the church, God
may deal with the whole church. All
we need to do today is look around
at many of our local churches and
see. Just because a church has done
some good things in the past does not


negate the Word of God to those that
compromise God's word. If a group of
believers are in His will, God will bring
victory. If a group is out of His will,
defeat is certain.
Joshua 7:1, 10-15 shows that what
has been promised to God in word
must be delivered in deed. Willful dis-
obedience always results in judgment.
There is time for talk and a time for
action.
. Joshua 7:16-26 teaches us that it if
the sin is allowed by all, the repentance
is required by all. 'We all represent
God as -a member of His church and
if we sin (disobey' God) we're not only
a reproach to God but we expose our
entire church to God's chastisement.
I Cor. 10:6 says, speaking of the
children
of Israel,- BIBLE STUDIES

Heb. 4:11, make it clear that all things
that happened to Israel happened for
our example. "Let us therefore be dili-
gent to enter that rest lest anyone fall
short after the same example of disobe-
dience" (NKJ).
So church, it's up to us to govern
ourselves tosee that there is no sin in
the camp. Church leaders have the
responsibility to see that this is done.

Hugh Sherrill is a Bible teacher at
Eastside Baptist Church.


As her father tucked his young
daughter into bed, shesaid,
"Daddy, I need to tell you
something...I told a lie today
at school."
Want to hear the rest of the story? Okay,
but first ask yourself: why would a little girl
"need" to tell her Daddy that she told a lie?
A quick observation makes clear that 1)
she knew that telling a lie was wrong and
2) that she felt bad about it Her "need" to
tell implies that, for obvious reasons, she
didn't want to tell.. .a mental picture of her
inward struggle is easy to imagine.
Romans 2:15 calls this the working of our
conscience. The Message Bible translates it
this way:-
"... God's law is not something alien,
imposed on us from without, but woven
into the
HEART MATTERS very fab-
ric of our
creation.
There is
something
deep within
them that
echoes
God's yes
and no,
Angie Land right and
angieland3@windstream.net wrong."'
This
"some-
thing" deep within refers to our cpn-
science. The Greek translation for con-
science is "suneidesis" and is defined as
"the- soul as distinguishing between what'
is morally good and bad; prompting to do
the former and shun the latter." I believe
that our biggest job as parents is to help
cultivate the working of our children's
conscience. Children are born with a sin
nature... (if we are tempted to question that
fact, consider the reality that no one needs
to teach a child to be selfish.) They
are also born with a conscience. Thus the
struggle, which takes us back to our story.


All alone throughout the day, this par-
ticular little girl had struggled with her lie
and her reason for lying. She still felt ter-
rible. No matter what she did, she couldn't
quit thinking about it What she feels is
not imaginary. On the contrary, we have
all felt the misery of a guilty conscience. In
1 Samuel 25:31, there is a reference to the
staggering burden of a guilty conscience,
and 1 Timothy 4:2 refers to liars as having
a "seared" conscience.
So she tells her Daddy... surely he would
make her feel better! Of course he wanted
to with all his heart! Does he listen to her
story and excuse the lie because it was
for a good reason? Can he forgive her
crime and grant her a pardon? It is inter-
esting that the Bible gives one and only
one prescription for a guilty conscience:
repentance. Going to God in prayer and
confessing the fault, accepting the blame
and asking for forgiveness. 1 John 1:9 fills
the prescription: "If we confess our. sins,
He is faithful and just to forgive us our
sins." Further relief is promised in Acts
3:19, assuring us of "seasons of refreshing"
follow repentance. A refreshing coolness
applied to a scorching, seared conscience.
What parent would want anything less for
their child?
Don't worry, this story has a happy
ending.. .the little girl's Daddy shared
God's view.of lying with his daughter and
explained to her that forgiveness for her lie
was already paid for at the Cross. God had
already provided for'her relief; she just had
.to ask for it.. .because every heart matters!

DEAR ABBY


Sister hidden in the wings

must find her own stage


DEAR ABBY: I'm a fresh-
man in high school and my
sister is a junior. She plays
violin in our school orches-
tra (first chair), gets straight
A's in all her classes (hon-
ors and AP courses) and is
gorgeous and popular. I, on
the other hand, am socially
awkward, spend most of my
time with my nose jammed
in a book, barely get As in
my few honors courses and
play in the school band.
I have a few close friends,
but most of them aren't in
any of my classes so I eat
lunch alone. I don't want
to be popular; I just want
to stop being jealous of my
sister. How can I do that
.when anything I do that's
good is overshadowed
by all her accomplish-
ments? LIVING IN THE
SHADOWS IN ILLINOIS
DEAR LIVING IN THE
SHADOWS: It would be
helpful if you would stop
comparing yourself to your
sister. You are an individual,
and individuals do not all
blossom at the same rate.
You have accomplishments
you should be proud of. You
play an instrument, you are
in some honors courses,
and you are a READER
The time you spend with
your "nose jammed in a
book" will pay off later
because you are developing
your mind.
I recommend you find an
area of interest that your sis-
ter hasn't tried, and develop
that Its a way to excel at
something in your own


Abigail Van Buren

right, and make some new
acquaintances so you aren't
lost in the glare of your
sister's spotlight

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 35-
year-old woman. My boy-
friend of two years and I
are having issues because
of his irresponsibility. He's
a great guy with a heart of
gold, but he can't keep a
job. He has quit the same
job three times within the.
last 12 months and now is
fully unemployed.
I have been confiding in
a female friend who hap-
pens to be a lesbian. Her
understanding and com-.
pasgion have brought us a
lot closer than I could have
.ever imagined. Honestly, I
am not attracted to women,
but there's something
going on in my heart for
her. She knows how I feel
and has expressed inter-
est in taking our friend-
ship to a different level,
but I'm not sure I can do
it. Homosexuality is not
accepted in my family, and
I wouldn't be comfortable
about being open in public
with another woman. Can
you help me decide what
to do? ANONYMOUS IN


ARIES (March 21-April'
19): Don't get worked up
over nothing. Use your
energy wisely and get
things done that makekyoul
feel good about who you
are and what you contrib-
ute. Engaging in a project
with others can be exhila-
rating, as well as financial-
ly rewarding. -***
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Take note of anyone
who is constantly chang-
ing or doesn't appear to
know what's going on.
You are best to put dis-
tance between you and
those who are likely to be
difficult or incompetent.
Uncertainty is the enemy,
so be precise. ***
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Surprise everyone
with the generous offer-
ing of your time and ser-
vices, and you will attract
the attention of someone
who can offer you greater
security. Inventing a way to
offer your skills to a wider
variety of people will pay
off. ****
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Uncertainty regarding
your position or status is
apparent. Stay on top by
being prepared to adapt to
maintain your status quo.
Consider a creative skill
you have that can bring in
additional income. **
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Get out and about. It's


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

important to interact with,
peers and those vho have
something to offer you in
return. A change of scen-
ery will do you good emo-
tionally. Don't allow anyone
to push you into a decision
that might jeopardize your
income. *****
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Put time, effort and
cash into your home and
family. Fixing up your
digs will lead to greater
comfort. An opportunity to
learn something valuable
is apparent if you attend a
function that allows you to
network within your cho-
sen field,. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Keep the ball rolling.
Get involved in what-
ever allows you to push
a dream closer to reality.
Interacting with others will
bring offers that will help
you reach your goals. An
unexpected change will
be a blessing in disguise.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): You deserve a break.
Spend time with friends
or your lover and you will
find it rejuvenating as well
as informative regarding
your current financial
situation and what options
you have to increase your


assets. ***
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21): Changes at home
will improve your relation-
ship with family. Make a
poipt of doing something
extra ordinary and you will
impress someone special.
Don't let your health suffer
because you overdo it or
engage in a reckless act

CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Keep things
steady. Engaging in
unfamiliarity will bring
uncertainty and emotional
turmoil. Stick clbse to
home and refuse to give in
to undeserving individuals
trying to take advantage
of you. Protect your assets
and possessions. **
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18): People from your past
will give you something to
think about Remembering
experiences will help you
make the right choice
now. An opportunity to
change the way you earn
your living must be taken:
Positive change is appar-
ent. ****
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Focus on what you
can accomplish, not what
you cannot You have to
put what others do or say
in perspective and concen-
trate more on what you
feel you should be doing.
Be reasonable and you will
get results. ***

ALABAMA
. DEARANONYMOUS:
You may not be attracted
to women, but you appear
to be attracted to this one.
Your disappointment in your
boyfriend's inability to hold
a job is not the issue here.
The issue is your fear of
your.family's disapproval
and your embarrassment
about being open about
your attraction if it turns out
to be more powerful than
you want to admit Whether
you ignore your feelings or
follow through on them, you
will pay a price. My advice
is be true to yourself, but
make sure you think long
and hard before acting.

DEAR ABBY: I am
recently divorced and have
chosen to go back to using
my maiden name. The
divorce was a long time in
coming and, frankly, I'm
happy about it What's both-
ering me is the reaction I
get from most people about
my name change. Many of
them assume that a name
change equals marriage
- so I am often congratu-
lated. What lighthearted
response can I give to those
folks to set them straight?
- UNATTACHED IN
ARLINGTON
DEAR UNATTACHED:
Say, "Thank you for the
congratulations, but this is
the name I was born with."

Whitaker sends
message to
Challenge.

By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com

Students at Challenge
Learning Center may not
have heard of the name
Nathan Whitaker, but all
had heard the name Tim
Tebow.
As a close to the
school's literacy week,
Whitaker, author of Tim
Tebow's biography, spoke
to select students about
what it takes to make an
impact
Whitaker, a Duke and
Harvard graduate, told
the students that failure
doesn't have to define
them.
An athlete that grew up
in, the Gainesville area,
Whitaker had seen his
share of failures before
finally achieving success.
He told students that
failure is a success if it
leads you to where you
need to go.
Whitaker's path led
him to the NFL work-
ing for the Jacksonville
Jaguars and Tampa Bay
Buccaneers. As Whitaker
put it, he found out that
he wasn't very good at the
job.
"I was fired twice," he
said. "I was out of work and
nobody cared what I had to
write about leadership."
Whitaker's path led him
to writing, but 40 publish-
ers turned him down on his
book ideas.
That's when another
message that he shared
came into play.
"One of my favorite
quotes is from Woody
Allen, a guy who makes
movies," Whitaker told the
students. "He said that. 80
percent of success is just
showing up."
The door that he showed
up atwas of Super Bowl win-
ning coach Tony Dungy.
After a little convinc-


an


impact

Author Nathan Whitaker autographs his biography of Tim Tebow for Donna Jeffers during a presentation at the Challenge
Learning Center on Friday.


ing, Whitaker published
Dungy's biography. It sold
over a million copies.
But Whitaker didn't mea-
sure his success by how
many books he sold.
"The importance isn't in.
how many books I sold,"
he told the students. "A lot
of times the world doesn't
pat you on the back. Still,
if you're doing what you
think God wants you too,
that's successful."
Whitaker made sure to
point out that nobody talks
about the failures that often
lead to greatness.
I was fired two times in
four years," he said. "Life
isn't always what you think.
It wasn't like I had hoped."
But it was the failures that
put him in a situation to be
successful., Had Whitaker
not worked for Tampa Bay,


he wouldn't have built a
relationship with Dungy
and would have never been
given the opportunity to
write his biography and
the 11 books he's had pub-
lished to date.
With over 2.1 million
copies sold of his published
works, Whitaker is now an
accomplished author.
He was interviewed
by Piers Morgan, who
replaced Larry King on
his talk show. Whitaker
has been on the top of the
NY Times best-seller's list.
But most importantly, he's
had a chance to influence
people.
He's been able to send
the message that failure
doesn't have to be the end.
There's always hope to be
made out of situations if
one is willing to put in the


work.
Whitaker told the
Challenge students that
they are able to make an
impact like some of them
were able to do earlier this
week by visiting disabled
children.
He told a story of Tony
Dungy calling a child
recently after his own son
had taken his life.
. "A father called the Colts
and the phone's filtered
through to Tony's office,"
he said. "A man was on
the other line and his son's
soon-to-be wife passed
away before the wedding.
The man asked if Tony
would call his son."
Dungy granted the wish
and talked the son for the
next seven months. After a
while, the son asked Dungy
'what he did for a living, not


knowing that he had just
won the Super Bowl with
the Indianapolis Colts.
The morale of the story
for Whitaker was that it
didn't matter that he had
won a Super Bowl, it just
mattered that he took the
time to care.
He told the students of
Challenge that their fail-
ures didn't have to be what
defined'them. They could
still make an impact by
just showing up and giving
whatever they decide to do
their best attempt.
The author didn't set out.
to sell 2.1 million books.
He didn't hope to have 11
books published or inter-
view Tebow or Dungy.
But failure led him to
an opportunity and he
seized the chance to
succeed.


Djokovic edges Murray,


sets up final vs Nadal


Champ will
have chance to
defend crown.

By JOHN PYE
Associated Press

MELBOURNE,Australia
- Defending champion
Novak Djokovic moved
into an Australian Open
final against Rafael Nadal
after edging Andy Murray
in a five-set, almost five-
hour semifinal late Friday
night
Despite appearing tired
and sore from the second
set, Djokovic rallied to beat
Murray 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-1,
7-5 in a rematch of the 2011
final at Melbourne Park to
reach his third consecutive
Grand Slam final.
After wasting a chance
to serve out the match at
5-3 in the fifth and letting
Murray back into the con-
test, Djokovic cashed in his
first match point when the
Scottish player missed a
forehand after four hours,
50 minutes.
Djokovic dropped onto
his back, fully laid out on
the court. He got up and
shook hands with Murray,


before jogging back out
onto the court like a boxer,
dropping to his knees and
crossing himself.
It was already after 12:30
a.m. Saturday when he got
up again and pumped his
arms triumphantly.
-"Andy deserves the
credit to come back from
2-5 down. He was fighting.
I was fighting," Djokovic
said. "Not many words that
can describe the feeling of
the match.
"Evidently it was a physi-
cal match ... it was one of
the best matches I played.
Emotionally and mentally
it was equally hard."
It was a bitter setback
for Murray, who lost the
previous two Australian
finals.
Djokovic finished last
year at No. 1 after winning
three of the four majors,
including a straight-sets
win over Murray in the
Australian final. His only
loss at a Grand Slam in
2011 was against Roger
Federer in the French
Open semifinals.
It was phenomenal sea-
son after previously only
winning one major the
2008 Australian Open -


and not returning to a final
for 11 Grand Slams.
'To be honest, I think I
matured as,a player. I start-
ed to believe pn the court I
could win majors," he said.
"Rafa and Roger are the
most dominant players for
the last seven, eight years.
... It was very hard to take
away the titles from them.
They will not give you the
titles. You have to earn it."
He is now aiming to
be only the fifth man in
the Open Era started in
1968 to win three straight
majors only Rod Laver,
Pete Sampras, Federer
and Nadal have achieved
it before him, with only
Laver going on to complete
the Grand Slam by winning
all four majors in a season.
The Australian great
was in the arena named in
his honor to watch Friday
night's semifinal, as he had
been when 2009 Australian
Open winner Nadal came
back from a set and a break
down to beat four-time
champion Federer in four
sets the previous night.
Djokovic's 70-6 win-loss
record in 2011 included six
wins over Nadal all in
finals.
