Romney wins big in Florida

Associated Press
TAMPA Mitt Romney routed Newt
Gingrich in the Florida primary Tuesday
night, rebounding from the previous
week's defeat with a commanding vic-
tory and taking a major step toward the


Republican presi-
dential nomination.
Despite the one-sided
setback, Gingrich
vowed to press on.
"Thank you FL!" an
exuberant Romney
tweeted minutes after
the race was called.

"While we celebrate this victory, we must
not forget what this election is really
about: defeating Barack Obama."
Returns from slightly more than half of
Florida's precincts showed Romney with
47 percent of the vote, to 33 percent for
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick
Santorum had 13 percent, and Texas Rep.

Ron Paul 7 percent. Neither mounted a
substantial effort in the state.
The winner-take-all primary was worth

Two Fort White High
School students were treat-
ed for minor injuries at a
local hospital Monday after
the school bus they were
riding in was rear-ended by
a Lake City woman driving
on a suspended license.
The school bus was travel-
ing north on State Road 247
near SW Mill Road when
it stopped and activated its
lights at 3:50 p.m. to unload
Investigators said
Veronica Moore, 27, was
driving a 1998 Honda
Accord and failed to stop,
striking the bus.
Carley Wartszok, 13, and
McKayla Land; 14, both of
Lake City, were taken to
Lake City Medical Center
where they were treated
and released.
Moore was taken to Shands
at Lake Shore Hospital where
she was treated for minor
injuries. The bus driver,
Laverne Lee, was not injured
in the accident
The estimated damage to
the bus is $1,500; the dam-

Few guidelines on when to close roads

Associated Press
ORLANDO Whether ifs a dust storm
in Arizona, a whiteout in Maine or wildfire in
Florida, the call to shut down a major highway
usually rests with local officials, who in some
' cases have little, if any, written guidelines to
In many cases, officials rely on what offi-
cers'at the scene are seeing or what they
can't see when they make the decision.
In Florida, a foggy, smoke-filled stretch of

Interstate 75 in .Gainesville was closed in
both directions for three hours early Sunday.
Shortly after troopers decided to reopen,the
highway, cars slammed into tractor-trailers on
both sides of the interstate in two pileups that
killed 10 people.
Florida officials said they were willing to
review their protocols, but the Highway.Patrol
was also quick to put the safety onus on driv-
ers, saying conditions can change in an instant
and motorists must be prepared to quickly
make good decisions.
Federal transportation agencies have never

issued guidelines on when to close roads
due to fog, fires and dust storms. National
groups representing insurance companies, the
Federal Highway Administration, the National
Highway Transportation Safety Administration
and the National Transportation Safety Board
all said they had not heard of such a policy.

Legend, Kennedy Center honor Gaye

WASHINGTON Grammy award-
winning singer John Legend sur-
prised a high school choir Tuesday
it the Kennedy Center to help start a
program encouraging young artists
to confront social issues with their
art, in honor of the late Marvin Gaye.
" The project, "What's Going On ...
Now," echoes Gaye's lyrics and asks
young people to express how things
have changed in the four decades
since Gaye's hit album, "What's
Going On."
Students can
upload videos,, pho-
tos, poems, music
or any recordings of
creative expression to
the project's website
to answer that ques-
tion. Gaye
Gaye's ground-
breaking 1971
Motown album tackled difficult
social issues such as war, drug
addiction and poverty, and asked
audiences to reflect on the times. His
1I972 performanceat the Kennedy
Center in his hometown was a his-
toric comeback for Gaye his first
live performance in two years since
the death of his singing partner
and friend Tammi Terrell. It's also
believed to be the only time Gaye
sang his entire "What's Going On"
album in concert
Legend, 33, will recreate Gaye's
performance in two concerts in
May with the National Symphony
Orchestra and other performers.
They will also incorporate recordings
submitted by students. The Kennedy
Center will feature user-generated
content on the project's website, and
'.wo young participants will win a free
'trip to Washington for the concert
;Legend surprised a show chqir
Tuesday from Washington's Duke
Ellington School of the Arts while ,
,they were rehearsing for a perfor-

mance of "What's Going On" at the
Kennedy Center. Many of the stu-
dents' jaws dropped as Legend sat
down at the piano to sing with them.
Legend said Gaye's tunes were
part of his childhood because his
parents were big fans. But that
memorable album almost never
happened. Motown founder Berry
Gordy initially was against it but got
on board when it started to sell.
It takes "a bit of boldness" for art-
ists to take on social issues and politi-
cal issues like Gaye did, Legend said.
"Music right now ... especially
in hip hop, no one really wants to
talk about.poverty," he told The
Associated Press. "And if people did
make (such music), would the audi-
ence respond in a way that would
encourage more people to make it?"
More often hip hop is about cel-
ebrating black wealth and success,-
he said, because people want music
to be an escape, to be inspired.

Young: Jobs listened to
vinyl, not iPad at home
DANA POINT, Calif. Legendary
rocker Neil Young took his cam-
paign for higher-fidelity digital
sound to the stage of a technology
conference Tuesday,' saying a giant
of the industry was on his side: the,
late Steve Jobs.
Young said the Apple co-founder
was such a fan of music that he
didn't use his iPod and its digitally
compressed files at home. Instead,
he used a physical format well-
known to have better sound.
"Steve Jobs was a pioneer of
digital music. His legacy is tremen-
dous," Young said. "But when he
went home, he listened to vinyl
,Young told the "D: Dive Into
Media" conference Tuesday that he
spoke with Jobs about creating a

format that has 20 times the fidelity
of files in the most current digital
formats, including MP3.
Such a format, he said, would
contain 100 percent of the data of
music as it is created in a studio, as
opposed to 5 percent in compressed
formats including Apple's AAC.
Each song would be huge, and a
new storage and playback device
might only hold 30 albums. Each
song would take about 30 minutes to
download, which is fine if you leave
your device on overnight, he said.
"Sleep well. Wake up in the morn-
ing. Play some real music and listen
to the joy of 100 percent of the
sound of music," he said,

Prison privatization
plan debated
Senate President Mike
Haridopolos cut off debate
on a now-contentious South
Florida prison privatization
plan after blowback from
Democrats and Republicans
who oppose the measure.
Debate on the bill (CS/
CS/SB 2038) started
Tuesday and will con-
tinue Wednesday. A vote'
could happen as early as
Sen. Mike Fasano and
other senators oppose priva-
tizing what they call a public
safety function. The New
Port Richey Republican
says it likely will put thou-
sands of prison employees
out of work.
But Senate budget chief
JD Alexander and rules
chair John Thrasher say
privatization offers savings
that can be put toward hir-
ing teachers and other pub-
lic services.

FAMU prez stops
students from clubs
A&M University President
James Ammons is cancel-
ling a summer band camp
and temporarily blocking
students from joining stu-
dent clubs.
Ammons announced
the move Tuesday during
a safety forum. The ban
prevents clubs and organiza-
tions from recruiting, enroll-
ing and initiating any new
members during the spring
and summer semesters.
Any organization that
violates the ban will be sus-
pended from campus.
The announcement
comes in the wake of the
death of drum major Robert
Champion that has been
linked to hazing. In the last
few weeks, FAMU students
have been arrested in con-
nection with two separate
hazing incidents.
Ammons said he decided
to suspend the summer

band camp due to the
investigation and because
of plans to convene an anti-
hazing task force that will
review how FAMU should
oversee band activities.

Two get life for
fatal store robbery
Two men have been sen-
, tenced to life in prison for
killing two South Florida
convenience store clerks
during a robbery.
A Palm Beach County
judge sentenced 21-year-
old Robert Alvarez and
19-year-old Darnell Razz
Tuesday.after a jury found
them guilty of first-degree
Authorities say the two
killed Ralston Muller and
Michael Dean Bennett
during a masked rob-
bery caught on video at a
Greenacres Circle K conve-
nience store in April 2010.
According to the Palm
Beach Post, Razz and
Alvarez's attorneys tried to
convince the jurors that the
video evidence failed to link
the two to the crime.

Senator: Don't pit
children vs. others
Florida Senate Democratic
Leader Nan Rich says
there's no need to pit chil-
dren, the elderly and dis-
abled against each other.
Rich stood just a few
feet from Gov. Rick Scott
at a Children's Week event
Tuesday as she criticized a
key element of his budget
proposal without naming
the Republican governor.
Scott has recommended
a $1 billion spending
increase for education and
sharp cuts in health care.
Rich said that's "not only
a cruel choice, it's a false
She said both could be
funded if the Republican-
controlled Legislature
would just close loopholes
in existing tax laws.

Afterward Scott defend-
ed his budget proposal,
saying he's trying to pre-
vent taxpayers' money ,
from being wasted.
He said Floridians
shouldn't let "special inter-
ests" such as unions and
trial lawyers "hijack our

again about two weeks
after Tuesday's presiden-
tial primary.
He's been working elec-
tions at the state and local
levels for 36 years.
Browning says he'll, miss,
the job but being away
from his family in Pasco

years has been difficult.
He says the half-hour

Browning, though, said
he won't miss getting up

Fisherman's body
found in lake
WALDO Deputies
have found the body of a
27-year-old man who didn't
return home after a fishing
trip to a north Florida lake.

Alachua County deputies
began searching when
Scholtz didn't return home
and his body was found
Tuesday morning.

fire programs. It has
a 16-item checklist for
"smoke/fog incidents" that
is part of a larger 28-page
policy manual for Florida
Highway Patrol shift com-
Closing a road, which
can be costly for tractor-
trailers shipping goods, is
decided by a supervisor
who consults with troopers
at the scene, although any
patrolman can make the
call if there is imminent
danger, said Capt. Mark
Brown, chief of the patrol's
media relations. In the 1-75
pileup, a district lieutenant
based in Gainesville who
was the supervisor at the
scene made the decision.

A day earlier, a different
spokesman said a sergeant
and lieutenant determined
after about three hours
that conditions had cleared
enough for drivers.
"We rely on the mem-
bers on the ground, and
their physical presence,
people who are actually
there their feedback.
The person that can actu-
ally see what is going on,"
Brown said.
Troopers also use infor-
mation and forecasts from
the National Weather
Service. One key piece
of information is an index
estimating the humidity
and smoke dispersion on
a scale of 1 to 10. If the

score is 7 or higher, the
road should be closed.
The index score for
early Sunday had been
forecast to. be 6 in a
four-county region that
includes the crash area,
according to the National
Weather Service.
The Low Visibility
Occurrence Risk Index
was introduced to troop-
ers around the state fol-
lowing a deadly crash
in 2008 on Interstate 4
between Orlando and
Tampa, about 125 miles
south of Sunday's, pileup.
Four people were killed
and 38 injured in that
crash, which was caused
by heavy smoke and fog.

GINGRICH: Newt cruises in Columbia

the vote
Nine candidates were list-
ed on the ballot, but only
four actively campaigned in
Gingrich led the field in
Columbia County with 2,387
votes, followed by Romney
with 1928 votes. Rick
Santorum, who canceled a
campaign visit to Lake City
last week, got 1,034 votes.
Texas congressman Ron Paul
finished with 378 votes.
The remaining can-
didates, some of whom
dropped out of the race but
were still listed on Tuesday's
ballot, all got votes: Rick
Perry 35; Herman Cain 21;
Michelle Bauchmann 11;
Jon Huntsman 8 and Gary

Johnson 2.
No problems were report-
ed at any of the polls, election
officials said. Poll workers
described the turnout as
slow but steady throughout
the day.
The county has 32,976
active voters, but only the
were eligible to vote in
Tuesday's primary. Final
election results show 5,804,
or more than 44 percent of
registered Republicans, cast
votes Tuesday.
Liz Home, superintendent
of elections said she was
pleased with the turnout,
especially after poll workers
reported the turnout was
slow by mid afternoon.

"I was shocked when I was
given the percentages," Home
She said it would have been
disappointing if the turnout
had been low because of the
hard work everyone puts into
running an election.
"Ifs a lot of effort," she said.
The turnout percentage
for the 2008 presidential pri-
mary elections was lower
than Tuesday's, with about
39 percent of registered vot-
ers participating. But every
registered voter on the active
list could participate because
both parties had presiden-
tial primary elections and the
county had a tax referendum
on the ballot that everyone
could vote on.

Florida Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, looks at a map for proposed changes in
Congressional districts during a Senate committee meeting on reapportionment earlier this
month in Tallahassee.

Appeals court upholds

redistricting amendment

Associated Press
MIAMI A federal appeals court
on Tuesday rejected a challenge to
Florida's Amendment 6, added to the
state constitution by voters to curb so-
called gerrymandering of congressio-
nal districts that historically protected
incumbents or gave advantage to the
political party in power.
The three-judge panel of the 11th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rebuffed
claims by U.S. Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart,
a Miami Republican, and Corrine Brown,
a Jacksonville Democrat, that the power
to change congressional redistricting
rules resides solely with the Legislature
and not the voters through a referen-
"The lawmaking power in Florida
expressly includes the power of the peo-
ple to amend their constitution, and that is
exactly what the people did here in pass-
ing Amendment 6," wrote U.S. Circuit

Judge Stanley Marcus in the 32-page
opinion, which affirmed a September rul-
ing by a Miami federal judge.
Amendment 6 passed with 62 percent
of the vote in 2010. Among other things,
it requires that the 27 U.S. House of
Representatives boundaries in Florida
be compact rather than sprawling; that
they not be drawn to favor incumbents
or political parties; and that they not
be designed to shut racial or language
minorities out of the political process.
Diaz-Balart and Brown also claimed
that those new rules usurped the
Legislature's decision-making powers,
but the court rejected that as well.
The Legislature still must draw the 27
new districts, which it is doing now. The
Senate has passed its version of the map
and the House is working on its blueprint.
The final plan must be cleared by the
U.S. Justice Department under the Voting
Rights Act and signed by Republican Gov.
Rick Scott.

Obama this fall
That belonged to Romney when he cap-
tured the New Hampshire primary three
weeks ago, then swung stunningly to
Gingrich when he countered with a South
Carolina upset 11 days later.
Now it was back with the former
Massachusetts governor, after a 10-day
comeback that marked a change to more

aggressive tactics, coupled with an effi-
cient use of an overwhelming financial
About half of Florida primary voters said
the most important factor for them was
backing a candidate who can defeat Obama
in November, according to early exit poll
results conducted for The Associated Press
and the television networks.
As in early contests in Iowa, New
Hampshire and South Carolina, that mat-
tered more than experience, moral charac-

President Obama tak-
ing credit for higher
oil and natural gas
production is like the
rooster taking credit
for the sunrise. Contrary to the
words on the teleprompter at
last week's State of the Union
address, any success for these
fossil fuels has come in spite
of administration policies.
Unless the president sticks to
his promise of an "all-out, all-of-
the-above" energy strategy and
keeps the carbon haters at bay,
America's energy future will be
at risk.
Just as Mr. Obama made no
mention in his speech that he
had just shut down the Keystone
XL oil pipeline, he also skipped
over crackingg," the process of
natural gas extraction that has
become a dirty word among his
radical, self-proclaimed environ-
mental allies.
Booming natural-gas pro-
duction has driven prices to a
10-year low, so leftists have seen
the need to thwart this supply
of affordable energy. They've
cooked up fear-mongering tales
over its impact on water and air
Because there's not much evi-
dence of actual environmental
harm, the next trick has been to
turn to imaginary ills. The day
after the president's Keystone
XL pipeline rejection, research-
ers at Cornell University
charged that methane emissions
from the use of fracking in the
Marcellus Shale formation could
increase the risk of "near-term
climate change."
America's Natural Gas
Alliance, an industry group, has
countered that methane emis-
sions from shale are a natural
occurrence and there is insuf-
ficient evidence to conclude that
emissions have increased due to
Natural gas has a proven
record as an inexpensive and
clean fuel. In contrast, "renew-
able" energy requires a steady
renewal of taxpayer subsidies
to come anywhere near afford-
If the president were serious
about solving America's energy
woes, he wouldn't allow his envi-
ronmental allies to stand in the
way of fracking progress.

Cold comfort

Vegas, where I live,
from California,
where I'd been visit-
ing my kids, sound-
ed like a tuberculosis ward.
Seriously? Who goes to Sin
City when they're sick? Don't
.they know you're supposed to
wait until it's time to go home,
after you've partied for days,
lost a month's wages, gotten
a tattoo you can't explain and
suddenly remembered you
have, to go to work on Monday?
That's when you get sick -
not on your way there.
Apparently somebody failed
to post that travel advisory for
the folks on this flight, espe-
cially a woman seated next to
me, who sneezed, hacked and
coughed for the entire 70-min-
ute ride.
I almost felt sorry for her.
Almost as sorry as I felt for me.
Have you ever tried to hold
your breath for 70 minutes,
while saying "Bless you!" 70
times, because you were raised
to believe it's better to get sick
than, God forbid, be rude? Have
you ever tried for 70 minutes
not to touch your face (a doctor
once told me that's the best way
to avoid getting sick), only to
find that every time you think
"Don't touch your face!" you're
already touching it?
Have you ever wished,
instead of flying 70 minutes, you
had hitchhiked for 10 hours in
the back of a pickup with a meth
addict and a pack of rabid dogs?
That may be a bit overstated.
Forgive me. I have a fever.
When we finally landed, I
was surprised to be directed as

Sharon Randall
usual to the baggage claim. I'd
expected to be herded into a
Red Cross tent (equipped with
slot machines and nurses in
fishnet stockings) to be quaran-
tined until we either went broke
or died.
No such luck.
"Welcome to Vegas!" chirped
the flight attendant. And with
that we were free to go forth
and multiply a host of rhino-
viruses that would spread
across the valley like a plague
of locusts including a strain
that would hit me harder than
Muhammad Ali knocking out
Don Knotts.
The next morning, when my
husband brought me coffee (he
does this sometimes even if I'm
not sick and he has no major
reason to atone), I looked up at
him with red-rimmed eyes.
"Well," I said, "I'm sick."
This was his cue. When
somebody you love tells you
she's sick, you're supposed to
say, 'There, there."
You don't have to say it with
words, but try to say it with
, your actions. Be prepared to
supply any and all goods or
services needed or desired:
Aspirin, cold cloths, chicken
soup, hot tea, back rubs, house-
hold chores, shopping, garden-

ing, whatever.
Above all and I cannot
stress this enough maintain
a proper attitude of sympathy
and concern. Sympathy and
concern are not easily main-
tained, especially in prolonged
illnesses lasting more than, say,
20 minutes. But they are critical
to "There, there" success.
My husband knows this.
Lord knows I've tried to teach
To his credit, he tried. Until
he left for work. And I was
left all alone with a cough
that sounded like the bark of
a Chihuahua at a fireworks
So I called up my sister in
South Carolina. She knows
how to say "There, there." We
learned it from our mother,
who did not do everything well,
but could say "There, there"
like nobody's business. She
said it for us. Now we say it for
each other.
'Take care of yourself,
honey," said my sister. "I'm
sorry I can't be there to look
after you."
I told her not to worry, my
husband would be home soon.
Imagine my relief when he
came shuffling through the
door, my knight in shining
khakis, bearing two bags of
Chinese takeout
"Am I glad to see you!" I said.
Then he looked at me. His
eyes were as red as Satan's
"Yes," he said. "I'm sick."

Politicians use power to fix ballot game

When a political
party achieves
dominance of
any govern-
ment, one
expects that it would use its
hegemony to enact its public
policy agenda.
That's the way democracy is
supposed to work.
Using dominance to change
the political system with the
aim of perpetuating control
is another matter. It fixes the
game and undermines democ-
The most obvious example is
redrawing legislative and con-
gressional districts to ensure
that particular parties or politi-
cians will win subsequent elec-
tions, a practice called gerry-
mandering that was common in
California until voters created
an independent redistricting
Gerrymandering, however, is
not the only way dominant poli-
ticians attempt to predetermine
election outcomes.
For example, the I ,.i.lilin
commonly places measures on
the ballot and dictates the pre-
cise ways they are dchc ili l

- words that often shade the
truth about the measures' true
effects to persuade voters to
vote for something they might
not otherwise enact.
That's fixing the game.
Last year, Democratic Gov.
Jerry Brown and a Legislature
controlled by his party decreed
that all initiative and referen-
dum ballot measures appear
on the November ballot, rather
than both the November and
the June primary elections,
the practice for the last four
Why? Everyone knows that
it was to diminish chances that
voters would pass a so-called
"paycheck protection" measure
that would eat into unions' abil-
ity to gather campaign funds
from public employees money
that almost always goes to
Enacting a major change in
election law to affect the out-
come of one ballot measure is
fixing the game.
The attorney general's
office, in concert with the
Legislature's budget analyst, is
supposed to provide objective
t iil and summaries" for mea-

sures that appear on the bal-
lot The latter agency does its
work as it's supposed to, but in
recent years, the attorney gen-
eral has been giving descrip-
tions positive or negative spins.
The latest example, under
Democratic Attorney General
Kamala Harris, is the very posi-
tive description of the Brown-
sponsored tax- increase mea-
sure that unions support and
the negative, even misleading,
description of two proposed pub-
lic pension initiatives that unions
despise. One example: Using
"teachers, nurses and peace offi-
cers" as examples of who would
be affected, rather than garbage
collectors or Department of
Motor Vehicle clerks.
Harris' office defends the
summaries and insists that
political considerations were
not involved, but the chosen
words clearly make Brown's
measure more palatable to vot-
ers and the pension- reform
measures more onerous.
It's using political office to fix
the game, and it undermines

members wasted
what little time
they scheduled
for themselves to
work in January on a political
It fooled no one in
Washington but may dupe
some voters this fall who had
better things to do than fol-
low congressional gamesman-'.
On Jan. 18, the House
voted 239-176 along party
lines, with Republicans in the*
majority, to block President
Barack Obama from using
the authority Congress had
recently given him to raise
the ceiling on the national
Lawmakers took this seem-:.
ingly bold stand with the
expectation that the Senate
would kill the measure or, if -
by some improbable legisla-
tive misjudgment the bill
actually passed, the president 9
would veto it. A profile in
courage it was not.
If through some even more
improbable series of mishaps r.
the bill had actually become
law, the Republicans would
have been horrified and
humiliated and run for cover.
If the country hit the debt
ceiling, it could not borrow
the money to fulfill its obliga-
tions in ways the public sure--
ly would notice: not paying
the troops, not sending out
Social Security checks, and
failing to pay Medicare bills.
Still, the pointless vote
gave Republican House mem-
bers an afternoon to bloviate :
about the bloated budget
without fear of consequences.
The Senate last Thursday
voted 52-44 largely
along party lines, with the
Democrats in the majority -
to kill the House plan.
GOP brinksmanship with
the debt ceiling last summer
resulted in the first down-
grade in the national credit
rating in U.S. history, and
there were threats of further
downgrades if the lawmakers
didn't quit playing games and
get serious about deficits.
That. warning shot left both
the markets and the lawmak-
ers badly rattled.
The result was the Budget
Control Act, which gives
Obama the authority to
raise the debt ceiling unless
Congress votes to oppose it.
The architect of this sensible
compromise was the Senate's
top Republican, GOP leader
Mitch McConnell.
The act called for $900 bil-
lion in deficit reduction over
10 years by capping agency ,
budgets. A congressional
supercommittee was to come
up with an additional $1.2 tril-
lion in cuts but was unable
to reach agreement. Failing
that, the budget act called
for the $1.2 trillion in cuts to
kick in automatically across
the board at the start of fiscal
2013. Those draconian cuts
and their indiscriminate appli-
cation will be a real problem
for Congress. The Pentagon
has already begun lobbying
against them.
Political grandstanding -
holding votes on bills that are"
not intended to pass might
be acceptable, except that the
House was in session only
five days in January and the
Senate, a comparative work-
horse, nine days. In a year
when Congress has given
itself ample time off because
of the elections, the lawmak-
ers really don't have time for
this kind of nonsense.

was Jessica's ability to
adjust from middle school

beat," CHS head coach
Jimmy Williams said.
"Everything she does has
gotten better every year.
Her transition from high
school to college should be
pretty seamless."
St Johns River head
coach Katie Brosky is
counting on it.
"We are so excited,"
said Brosky, who played
at Palatka High which is
the city where St Johns
River is located. "We have
three sophomore pitchers
leaving and we are looking
for someone to come
in right away and make
an impact on our team.
Jessica being left-handed is
fantastic. We don't have too
many in our conference.
She is versatile she can
play first base and hit"

"Jessica is part of that

Keene was sending out

No. 12 Florida

Junior coming
into own for
Gators this year.
Associated Press
Florida's Erik Murphy has
a small scar just above his
right eye, a remnant of the
eight stitches he needed
after a recent collision with
teammate Patric Young.
It's hardly the only make-
over for the 6-foot-10 junior.
Murphy's game has
improved dramatically this
season, and coach Billy
Donovan says the power
forward has made an equal-
ly noticeable jump in matu-
rity since his arrest last
April. Combined, they have
helped Murphy develop into

a consistent scorer and reli-
able teammate for the 12th-
ranked Gators (17-4, 5-1
Southeastern Conference).
"Erik, in a lot of ways, was
just kind of floating through
life (last year)," Donovan
said. "I think I was able to
post him up, pin him up a
little bit and get his back
against the wall to make a
decision on who you want
to be as a person, who you
want to be as a player, who
you want to be as a student
and where do you want to
go with your life.
"I've seen a lot of growth
in Erik in a real, real posi-
tive way."

mate Cody Larson were

the arrest, saying he had
served his punishment.
"The offseason issue
made me grow up really
quick," Murphy said. "It
definitely helped me. It was
a blessing in disguise. It
helped me grow up men-
tally, mature."
His game has shown
progress, too.

"They're going to be emo-
tional games for us from

emotional game," Columbia
coach Horace Jefferson
said. "When we play it is
always little brother against
big brother."
The two teams won't

the result of this game as
Fort White travels to Lake
City to take on CHS at
7:30 p.m. on Friday.

He ranks fourth on the
team in rebounding. But for
many opponents, Murphy
offers a much more chal-
lenging matchup.
He is Florida's best
3-point shooter- one of the
best in Donovan's 16 sea-
sons in Gainesville and
hitting 48.5 percent from
behind the arc would be
good enough to rank fifth in
the country if he averaged a
few more 3s a game.
"To me, the whole key
to their team right now is
Murphy," Mississippi State
coach Rick Stansbury said.
"He's the guy that's changed
their team in every way.
He's playing with a lot of
confidence, too.... He gives

Killer Bs wins team blitz

New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco answers a question during Media Day
for NFL football's Super Bowl XLVI Tuesday in Indianapolis.

Ochocinco demure in long-

awaited Super spotlight

Associated Press

Ochocinco was the last
Patriot to walk across the
field and wade into the pack
of reporters and photogra-
phers waiting near the side-
line. He felt no need to rush
the moment he'd longed for
nearly his whole life.
This was his Super Bowl
media day.
Ochocinco finally got to
be on the receiving end of
questions Tuesday at Lucas
Oil Stadium for an annual
event that he attended sev-
eral times as a microphone-
toting correspondent for
his social media Ochocinco
News Network.
Now, the microphones
were aimed at him. -
"Aw, man, I've dreamed
of it," Ochocinco said, wear-
ing his blue No. 85 jersey,
blue Super Bowl cap and
irrepressible smile. "I've
been playing this game a
long time started out
at 4 years old. And this is
what you dream of, to come
to this stage and enjoy it.
So that's what I'm going
to do."
And he's doing it the New
England way.
Instead of driving the
conversation by talking
about himself, Ochocinco
was along for the ride. He
didn't seem to mind that
he didn't get one of the 14
podiums set up on the field
for coach Bill Belichick and
Instead, he stood at the
13-yard line between podi-
ums reserved for tight
end Aaron Hernandez and
receiver Matthew Slater, his
soft tone often drowned out

by his teammates' speaker-
amplified comments.
Didn't matter.
"This is my podium,"
Ochocinco said, referring to
his small section of artificial
turf encircled by reporters
and photographers. "If I was
up there, you couldn't get to
me. You couldn't smell the
cologne I have on now."
During the. nearly hour-
long session, Ochocinco
provided hardly a whiff of
his old look-at-me ways.
After 10 years of command-
ing the spotlight and losing
games in Cincinnati, the
social media mogul had to
pull off one of his most dif-
ficult changes.
Ochocinco had to use the
words "I" and "me" much
more sparingly in order to
co-exist with Belichick in
New England. He had to
learn, he says, throwing in
an obscenity, to shut up.
There was no remorse.
in his tone on Tuesday. He
knew when the Patriots
traded for him that his
self-promoting ways would
have to end. If he lapsed
back into look-at-me, he'd
be looking at the end of his
stay in New England.
So, he did away with his
lists of cornerbacks who
couldn't cover him, his
touchdown skits and victo-
ry guarantees. Ochocinco,
who legally changed his
name from Johnson to get
more attention, would have
to drop the "diva" from his
job description.
"I could have talked," he
said, 'but then I'd be sitting
at home today.
"I think I've had a great
career in general. The year
wasn'twhatl expected, what
everyone else expected. But
I did everything I was sup-

posed to do work, stay
quiet. I don't know if being
on this stage is a reward,
but there's nothing else' I
can do. I'm part of a team
and I've done everything
asked of me."
Especially the "stay quiet"
part, which went against his

Mornhinweg commits to

Florida, not Penn State

Assocaited Press

Skyler Mornhinweg, a high
school quarterback who
verbally committed to Penn
State, will instead sign a let-
ter of intent on Wednesday
to attend Florida.
Mornhinweg, a 6-foot-
3, 205-pound star at St.
Joseph's Prep and the son of
Philadelphia Eagles offen-
sive coordinator, Marty,
committed to Penn State
in July, but was swayed to
become a Gator after a visit
to Gainesville.
Mornhinweg made his
decision last week, and
informed Florida coach
Will Muschamp, but did
not make it public out of
respect for Joe Paterno's
family and the former Penn
State coach's funeral ser-
"I really like Penn State,
but I think Florida is the bet-
ter fit for me," Mornhinweg
said. "I'm really excited to
start. I can't wait. I also
have to admit it is a relief.
It's good to have it all over

"I really liked Florida
when I visited and I liked the
players," said Mornhinweg,
who threw for 1,780 yards
and 21 touchdowns during
his senior year. "There a
couple of reasons why I
chose Florida. One was the
players I met, they were
great. I can really see myself
playing with these guys.
"The other was the kind of

As a sophomore,
Mornhinweg gave a
verbal commitment to
then-Stanford coach Jim
Harbaugh. But when
Harbaugh left the Cardinal
for the San Francisco 49ers,
he explored other options
last spring.
That's when Penn State
entered the picture. He
committed to Paterno on
July 19.
"I love the old-school
ways Coach Paterno does
things," Mornhinweg said
at the time. "I can't wait to
start there."
But then, the scandal
surrounding former Penn
State assistant coach Jerry

Sandusky hit, resulting
in the ousting of school

Mornhinweg joins a
Florida program coming
off an uncharacteristic 7-
6 season, including a 3-5
mark in the Southeastern
"He loves competition,"
Infante said. "Think about
it. Sky's going to a great
school, in one of the most
difficult conferences in the
country. He's going to play
for a coach that wants him.
He's going to do very well

Which of our girls will be
the first to break 40?
We also congratulate
Ashley Mixon for her third-
place finish in the NFJG

played tough, as the winds
were gusting 15-25 miles

were very hard and fast
Ashley was able to keep
her game under control
and post a solid score.
Quail Heights and Lake

Woman in love with fiance's

twin now in double trouble

. DEAR ABBY: I am 26
and have been dating
"Mike" for four years. We
met in our senior year
of college and recently
became engaged. I'm
looking forward to being
married and starting a
family, but there's one
"small" problem. I'm in
love with Mike's identical
twin brother, "Matt."
Mike and Matt are
identical in appearance, '
but Matt is funnier, more
outgoing and affectionate
than my fiance. I didn't
know he existed until a
year ago because they
had a falling out at their
high school graduation
and didn't reconcile until
When I met Matt, I
knew right away he was
the one for me, but I
continued dating Mike
because I didn't want to
ruin his re-established
relationship with his
brother. Matt recipro-
cates my feelings. He has
told me he's in love with
me and wants to date me.
I know I shouldn't have
accepted Mike's proposal,
but I don't want to hurt
him or start another
fight between him and
his twin, but I also don't
want to be married to the
wrong man for the rest
of my life. I'm unsure
what to do. The wedding
date has been set. Help!
should have put the

Abigail Van Buren
brakes on the relation-
ship with Mike the
minute you realized you
were attracted to Matt.
The engagement should
be ended immediately.
That you would not only
continue to date Mike but
also accept his proposal
of marriage knowing you
were more attracted to
his twin was cruel.
If Matt starts seeing
you after the breakup,
it will probably cause a
permanent rift between
them. It will be interest-
ing to see what happens
when you become avail-
able because with some
people the "apple" that's
just out of reach is the
one that's most entic-
ing and you may wind
up married to neither

year-old son made a
snowman in our front
yard and then went inside
to take a nap. Our neigh-
bor came over with his
son age 16 to talk to
my husband.
When I brought my 3-
year-old daughter outside
to see the snowman her
brother made, I was hor-

ARIES (March 21-April
19): Don't labor over
trivial matters. If a decision
needs to be made, make it
and move on. Don't let per-
sonal uncertainty stand in
the way of your progress
financially or profession-
ally. Do what's best for you
and you will excel. ***-
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): An honest assessment
of what you can and cannot
accomplish must be estab-
lished if you want to get
ahead. Don't be fooled by
what others say or promise
they will contribute. Rely
on you and what you are
willing to do. ***
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Start at the top of your
to-do list You can prove a
point if you are innovative
in the way you tackle your
responsibilities. Don't let.
emotional matters slow
you down. Taking charge
will prove you can be a
leader. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Prepare to take advan-
tage of an opportunity
offered. Uncertainty will
be what holds you back.
Put a little pressure on
someone reluctant to con-
cede to your plans. Home
improvement projects
will pay off in the near
future. Love is highlighted.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

Eugenia Last

Your outgoing, generous
nature will bring you great-
er popularity, but don't try
to buy love or you will fall
short Someone will be look-
ing for an opportunity to
take advantage of you. Keep
your guard up and your
choices selective. ****
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Learn all you can and
apply what you know to
your personal and profes-
sional life, as well as to
your partnerships. Striving
to get along and make
things work will lead to
success. Avoid anyone
using emotional blackmail.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Take the initiative and
you will have an impact on
the people you encounter.
You can make a difference
if you share your ideas and
do what you can to make
reforms to a plan that lacks
luster. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Take a back seat and
listen carefully to others.
You will get your turn, but
it's to your advantage to
gather information that will
enable you to lay out your
thoughts and plans flaw-
lessly. Perfection means
avoiding rejection. ***

22-Dec. 21): Play to win.
Talk the talk and walk
the walk. Your charm will
help you advance, but be
cautious with those who
know you well. Any form
of exaggeration will lead to
a feud that will affect your
personal life. ***
Jan. 19): Don't let good
times elude you because
you are busy making
changes that suit your
needs only. Look out for
others as well, and you
will avoid being ridiculed.
Equality in all you do will
lead to success. Love is
highlighted. *****
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Put greater
emphasis on your relation-
ships. Determine who is
good for you and who isn't.
You need to weed out your
circle of friends in order
to protect your emotional,
physical, financial and
.mental well-being. **.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Love is in the stars,
along with personal
improvement. Do what-
ever it takes to upgrade
and update so you are a
contender for advance-
ment. A partnership will be
enhanced if you are honest
regarding your expecta-
tions and intentions.

rifled to see it was now
"anatomically correct"! I
asked my husband who
did it, and he said it was
the neighbor's son. My
husband thought it was
funny and that I was over-
I think the behavior
was inappropriate, and
the fact that my daugh-
ter saw it and wondered -
what was "hanging on
the snowman" was no
laughing matter. If the
neighbor wanted to make
an X-rated snowman, he
should have made it in
his own front yard. Do
you think I'm being too
sensitive? FAILS TO
THE HUMOR: Yes, I do.
While I agree the neigh-
bor boy's "artistic endeav-
or" was in poor taste, it
provided an opportunity
to answer your daughter's
question in a matter-of-
fact way and explain there
are anatomical differ-
ences between boys and
girls. You could also have
explained that private
parts are not supposed
to be displayed in public,
and asked your husband
to remove them as you
took your little girl back
into the house. Seeing
the snowman would not
traumatize your daughter
as much as seeing you
shocked and upset.

LifeSouth: Giving the gift of life

From staff reports
The importance of blood
to people who are sick,
wounded or awaiting an
operation is recognized by
the staff and administrators
of LifeSouth.
LifeSouth has been in
Columbia County since 1980
and at the local LifeSouth
office, blood is collected and
later provided to patients at
local hospitals.
"We cover six differ-
ent counties," said Lorrie
Durden, LifeSouth regional
manager of the Suwannee
Valley Region. "We serve
our hospitals here in Lake
City first Excess we may
collect, which is not very
often, is supplied to our hos-
pitals in Gainesville or other
IUfeSouth regions."
The local LifeSouth office
has 18 staff members,
including technicians who
draw blood as well as couri-
ers and resource manage-
ment specialists.
The agency utilizes two
bloodmobiles for out of
office blood collection cam-
"One bus is equipped
with five beds so we can
collect from five donors at
one time, and the other is
equipped with three beds,"
Durden said.
The LifeSouth blood col-
lection office, 833 SW State
Road 47, is open seven
days a week and the blood-
mobiles are available seven
days a week.

The lifeSouth staff is
trying to address a need
for blood from 0-negative
"O-negative is the univer-
sal blood donor and we're
currently in urgent need for
that blood type," Durden
The local LifeSouth office
has a 12,000-pint blood col-
lection goal.
. 'We are increasing col-
lections and we're working
towards 15,000 to 18,000 a
year," she said of new col-
lection goals.
"Emphasis is always in
our collections with our
Apheresis donors," Durden
continued. "When we take
out your blood, we separate
it We're just keeping your
platelets and giving you the
rest of your products back
thafs in your blood."
Durden said cancer
patients need the platelets
and noted that platelets only
have a shelf life of five days.
During the Apheresis
process, which takes
an hour to 90 minutes,
one needle is used and
a machine separates the
blood platelets from the
blood and the blood is
returned to the donor.
"In the same return line
we give you your red cells
back along with a saline solu-
tion to keep you hydrated
and we just keep your plate-
lets," Durden said.
Platelet donors are eli-
gible to donate blood once
every two weeks.

"When you're get-
ting your red blood cells
returned back to you, then
you are eligible to give
blood again a lot quicker,"
Durden said. "If you give a
regular blood donation on
our mobile (units) you have

to wait eight weeks."
While on a bloodmobile,
for donors giving a regular
pint of whole blood, it will
take about 10 minutes to
give the pint of blood to
complete the blood dona-
tion process.

Anyone who is 16 years
of age or older is eligible
to give blood. Sixteen-year
olds must have a signed
parental consent slip.
Anyone else who meets the
age requirements may give
blood as long as they in

healthy condition, weigh at
least 110 pounds and have a
valid photo identification.
"Please give blood, it
saves many lives in your
community," Durden said.
For additional informa-
tion, go to wwwlifesouth.

blood donation bus.
