House approves $69 billion budget

Passes on a 79-38 vote;
Dems blast majority for
cuts to social programs.

Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE The Florida House on
Thursday voted along partisan lines in favor
of a bare-bones $69.2 billion budget for the
coming year.

The 79-38 vote came after a contentious par-
tisan debate in which Republicans called the
budget responsible because it was balanced
without- tax increases. Democrats lambasted
the majority party for pushing through a
budget that cuts spending on health care and
higher education.
- State lawmakers entered their annual ses-
sion knowing they were confronted with a
more than $1 billion budget gap because tax
revenues are growing, but not fast enough to
deal with increasing-expenses in Medicaid and
growing public school enrollments.
Republicans said they had no choice but to

Fla. among 10 states exempted from 'No Child'

Associated Press
WASHINGTON It could be
the beginning of the end for No
Child Left Behind.
The goal was lofty: Get all cliil-
dren up to par in math and reading
by 2014. But the nation isn't get-

ting there, and now some states
are getting out.
In a sign of what's to come,
President Barack Obama on
Thursday freed 10 states from
some of the landmark law's tough-
est requirements. Those states,
which had to commit to their own,
federally approved plans, will now
be free, for example, to judge

students with, methods other than
test scores. They also will be able
to factor in subjects beyond read-
ing and math.
"We can combine greater free-
dom with-greater accountability,"
Obama said from the White House.
Plenty more states are bound to
take him up on the offer.
While many educators and many

governors celebrated, congressio-
nal Republicans accused Obama

right reasons lately, but a judge said
Thursday that he should continue
to remain under the watchful eye of

complete the terms of his sentence
for beating then-girlfriend Rihanna
in 2009.
The Grammy-nominated R&B

hearing during which his attorney
asked that Brown's term on super-

his good behavior. Superior Court

Hanna rips Ohio legislators
for exotic pet laws
COLUMBUS, Ohio Celebrity
zookeeper Jack Hanna criticized
Ohio lawmakers Thursday for not
yet passing a bill to regulate exotic
animals, months after authorities
shot dozens of lions, tigers, bears
and other wild creatures let loose by
their suicidal owner.
A Republican state senator from
Zanesville, the eastern Ohio city
where the animals were shot, had
planned to introduce a bill this week
but then said it was not ready. There
is no new timetable for the measure.
"What's it going to take, everyone,
to pass a bill? Someone else get-
ting killed?" Hanna said during his
remarks to an Ohio newspaper trade
Hanna, a former Columbus Zoo
director who has given animal dem-
onstrations on national television for
decades, said he can't believe legisla-
tion hasn't progressed.
"In fact, I'm actually in a state
of shock right now because, folks,
you're not dealing with some little
issue of animals here. You're dealing
with bombs," Hanna told members
of the Ohio Newspaper Association
at their convention in Columbus.
Hanna said he has no power over
the Ohio Legislature and isn't run-
ning for office. But he said he has
seen a tiger finish off a 2,000-pound
water buffalo in less than 10 seconds
and lions take down even larger ani-
mals in less than 30 seconds.

Man pleads guilty to threat
to 'South Park' creators
convert from Brooklyn pleaded

guilty Thursday to using a website
he founded to post online threats
against the creators of the "South
Park" television show and others he
deemed enemies of Islam.
In court papers filed Thursday
with his guilty plea, Jesse Curtis
Morton, 33, admitted that his now-
defunct Revolution Muslim website
served as an outlet for al-Qaida pro-
paganda and that he used the site
to post thinly veiled threats not only
against "South Park" creators Matt
Stone and Trey Parker but others he
considered to be enemies of Islam.
Morton, who also uses the name
Younus Abdullah Mohammad,
worked closely with Zachary Adam
Chesser, who was sentenced last
year to 25 years in prison for the
"South Park" threats and other

Music mogul Simmons
mad over milk from, cows
ALBANY, N.Y. Music mogul
Russell Simmons wants New York's
governor to pull the plug on milk
from cows.
The hip-hop impresario writes in
a letter to Andrew Cuomo (KWOH'-
moh) that milk should no longer be
the state's official beverage.
Simmons, a vegan who has taken
on several animal rights causes with
People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals, says milk from cows is less
healthy than milk from rice, almonds
or soy.
He tells The Associated Press he
knows dairy is big business in New
York but says other industries could
spring up in its place.
Simmons and Cuomo go way
back. They're both from Queens,
and they worked together a decade
ago to help soften New York's strict
drug laws.

that a woman couldn't be
found guilty just because
she has a unique name.

The court agreed that

had received public assis-
tance benefits she wasn't
entitled to.
But the court ruled the
state didn't prove that the
defendant a Leon County

'NO CHILD': Florida now exempt
Continued From Page 1A

designed to help.
The first 10 states to be declared free
from the education law are Colorado,
Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky,
Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey,
Oklahoma and Tennessee. The only state
that applied for the flexibility and did not
get it, New Mexico, .is working with the
administration to get approval.
Twenty-eight other states, the District
of Columbia and Puerto Rico have sig-
naled that they, too, plan to flee the law in
favor of their own plans.
The government's action on Thursday
was a tacit acknowledgement that the
law's main goal, getting all students up to
speed in reading and math by 2014, is not
within reach.
The states excused from following the
law no longer have to meet that deadline.
Instead, they had to put forward plans show-
ing they will prepare children for college
and careers, set new targets for improving
achievement among all students, reward
the best performing schools and focus help
on the ones doing the worst
Obama said he was acting because
Congress had failed to update the law
despite widespread agreement it needed
to be'fixed.
"We've offered every state the same
deal," Obama said. "If you're willing to
set higher, more honest standards than
the ones that were set by No Child Left
Behind, then we're going to give you the
flexibility to meet those standards."
The executive action by Obama is one
of his most prominent in an ongoing cam-
paign to act on his own where Congress
is rebuffing him.
No Child Left Behind was one of
President George W. Bush's most tout-

ed domestic accomplishments, and was
passed with widespread bipartisan support
in Congress. It has been up for renewal
since 2007. But lawmakers have been sty-
mied for years by competing priorities,
disagreements over how much of a federal
role there should be in schools and, in the
recent Congress, partisan gridlock.
The law requires annual testing, and
districts were forced to keep a closer
eye on how students of all races were
performing not just relying on collec-
tive averages. Schools that didn't meet
requirements for two yekrs or longer
faced increasingly harsher consequenc-
es, including busing children to higher-
performing schools, offering tutoring
and replacing staff.
Over the years, the law became increas-
ingly unpopular, itself blamed for many
ills in schools. Teachers and parents
complained it led to "teaching to the test."
Parents didn't like the stigma of sending
their kids to a school labeled a failure
when requirements weren't met. States,
districts and schools said the law was too
rigid and that they could do a better job
coming up with strategies to turn around
poor performance.
A common complaint was that the 2014
deadline was simply unrealistic.
As the deadline approaches, more
schools are failing to meet requirements
.under the law, with nearly half not doing
so last year, according to the Center on
Education Policy. Center officials said
that's because some states today have
harder tests or have high numbers of
immigrant and low-income children, but
it's also because the law requires states
to raise the bar each year for how many
children must pass.

BUDGET: Final passage by House
Continued From Page 1A

popular Bright Futures scholarships; and
the elimination of thousands of state
"Florida may be a great place to visit,
but if you are the middle class it stinks
to live here right now," said Rep. Mark
Pafford, D-West Palm Beach.
Rep. Mia Jones, D-Jacksonville, said
the budget was an "assault" on minorities
because it cut money for minority health
programs and private historic black col-
leges in the state.
The firefight over a cut in benefits
for foster children prompted a sharp
exchange. Democrats criticized the pro-
vision because it will cut off benefits at
21 years old instead of 23 years as it now.
They said foster children deserved the
help since they were most likely had suf-
fered from child abuse before they were
placed in a foster home.
"I don't like these disparaging com-
ments that these children are victims,"
said Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala. "They
are not a victim, they are Americans."
The Thursday vote sets the stage for
negotiations during the final month of the
annual session.
The Senate is moving slower on its
budget proposal for 2012, but Senate
President Mike H'aridopolos has said he
expects his chamber to wrap its budget
by next week.
Still, crucial differences are emerging
between the two chambers. The House,
for example, has moved to block the clos-
ing of two prisons targeted by the admin-
istration of Gov. Rick Scott, including one
in a rural Panhandle county.
Rep. Denise Grimsley, R-Sebring and
House budget chief, insisted that this was
not simply a bargaining position with the
Senate. She said the decision to close the
Jefferson County prison had been sprung

on the community with little notice.
The House and Senate have also
diverged on the type of cuts in health
care services they are suggesting. House
members are already cautioning that
The Senate has also put a contentious
measure in one of its budget bills to allow
a branch campus of the University of South
Florida in Lakeland to become the state's
12th public university. House Speaker Dean
Cannon, R-Winter Park, would not say if
the House would go along with the move
but admitted it was a "parochial" decision.
Gov. Rick Scott, while attending the
Florida State Fair in Tampa, told report-
ers that he was willing to look at it, but
stopped short of endorsing it.
Heading into a crucial election year, both
the House and Senate have gone along
with Scott's push to pump more money
into education. The House would provide
about $1.1 billion more for public schools,
while the Senate has close to $1.2 billion in
additional money. The extra money, how-
ever, would not restore the full amount that
lawmakers cut from schools a year ago.
Scott also 'proposed keeping tuition
rates flat in the coming year, but the
House has recommended an 8 percent
hike. That hike can go up to 15 percent
under' a.law that lets universities charge
above the rate legislators set each year.
The Senate has a zero tuition hike for
state universities, but they have recom-
mended a three percent hike for students
at one of the state's 28 colleges.
The House budget eliminates thou-
sands of state jobs. While many of the
positions are vacant, the House is still
calling for the closing of driver license
offices, a reduction in the number of pro-
bation officers, and even the elimination
of a handful of investigators who handle
arson and consumer fraud cases.

LICENSE: State orders suspension

abused prescription painkillers intermit-
tently since 1999.
"Windham's consistent lack of good judg-
ment and flagrant disregard for the laws
and regulations governing the practice of
physician assistants represent a significant
likelihood that Windham will cause harm to
patients," the.emergency suspension order
said. "This history ... presents an immedi-
ate and serious danger to the health, safety
and welfare of the public. Nothing short of
the immediate suspension of Windham's
license will ensure the protection of the
public from this danger."
The state will now seek "formal suspen-
sion or discipline" of Windham's license,
the order stated.

In August 2011 Windham was charged
with child abuse, fabricating physical evi-
dence and the false report of a crime in a
plan that Windham allegedly formulated
to get his estranged wife in legal trouble,
according to the order. The child abuse
charge stems from an allegation that he
coerced one of his children to Sfalsely
accuse the child's mother, Windham's
estranged wife, of a crime, the order said.
The emergency order says the child suf-
fered a self-inflicted cut to the forearm
from a razor then said the mother had
caused the wound.
Those charges had not been resolved
when the emergency order was issued.

REDISTRICTING: Lawsuits filed
Continued From Page 1A

maps violate anti-gerrymandering stan-
dards in the two Fair Districts 4amend-
ments to the Florida Constitution that
voters approved in 2010. The suit was
filed in state Circuit Court here. Florida
Democratic Party officials said they would
contest the legislative maps during the
Supreme Court review.
Three nonpartisan groups that support-
ed the Fair Districts amendments also
announced plans to sue once Scott signs
the congressional plan.
"Republicans have undertaken the sort
of incumbent protection and partisan ger-
rymandering that 63-percent of Florida
voters overwhelmingly demanded must
stop," said Florida Democratic Party
Chairman Rod Smith. "Now the courts
have to step in to implement the will of
the people a job the GOP in Tallahassee
failed to accomplish."
Republicans insisted the maps conform
to the amendments that prohibit the inten-
tional drawing of districts to favor or disfa-
vor incumbents or political parties.
Senate Reapportionment Committee
Chairman Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, argued
that it doesn't matter if the maps favor the
GOP or incumbents because if they do that,
result was unintentional.
"Effect does not prove intent," Gaetz
said. "The effect is irrelevant legally and
Other Fair Districts provisions say the
right of racial and language minorities to
elect candidates of their choice cannot be
diminished and that districts should be
compact and follow geographic and politi-
cal boundaries whenever feasible.
Leaders of the League of Women Voters

of Florida, The National Council of La
Raza, and Common Cause Florida said
their groups and four individual plaintiffs
will sue in the same Tallahassee court if
and when Scott, a Republican, signs the
congressional bill into law.
A draft of their planned lawsuit says the
map "is filled with unconstitutional political
gerrymanders intended to favor one politi-
cal party and certain incumbents, while
disfavoring the other political party and
other incumbents"
- The groups did an analysis that showed
Republicans would be favored to win at
least twice as many districts as Democrats,
although voter registration in Florida is
split almost evenly between the parties.
The proposed lawsuit also alleges the
plan "suppresses the ability of minorities
to participate in Florida's political process
by unnecessarily confining their influence
to select districts and purposefully keeping
them out of others."
There's no need to show intent to prove
a violation of the minority protection pro-
visions, but Gaetz also argued the maps
do not diminish their ability to elect their
preferred candidates.
SThe congressional map increases the
black voting age population of a district
currently held by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown,
a black Democrat, from slightly below 50
percent to just above 50 percent. It also
maintains minority majorities in two ,
The map adds two new congressional
districts to bring the total to 27 including
one in central Florida with a 41.3 per-
cent Hispanic voting age population. Most
of those Hispanics, though, are Puerto

more buying power than ever."
The Rockford Realty Group real estate
agent said he compiled information from
municipalities across the state, including
sales and median market prices to make
his forecast, because no one else was
tracking Lake City's housing sales, fore-
closures, short sales, supply and other
details and compiling the information in
one document.
Curry said he began following hous-
ing sales trends when the market started
slowing in South Florida six years ago. He
noticed that tle Lake City area seems to
follow the same trends felt in South Florida
about a year later.
Compared to the rest of the state, the
Lake City market is among the lowest in
the state, he said. And the competition
to lure new Florida residents to their
communities is fierce, with Daytona, St.
Augustine, Ocala and Palatka all compet-
ing with Lake City.

whether it will happen to when

On Wednesday, Israeli
Foreign Minister Avigdor
Lieberman, who had met the
previous day with Secretary of
State Hillary Rodham Clinton,
said that "there is understand-
ing and agreement that Iran
must be prevented from getting
a nuclear weapon." This has
been the stated policy of the
United States for many years.
In his most recent State of the
Union address, Mr. Obama reit-
erated that "America is deter-
mined to prevent Iran from
gettingsa nuclear weapon, and
I will take no options off the
table to achieve that goal."
The intelligence community
prefers to talk about capabilities
rather than weapons, as though
Iran's strategy would involve
claiming to have the compo-
nents to make a nuclear weapon
without actually putting them
together. Only an American in
deep denial would believe that
a foreign state would pursue
such a useless, counterproduc-
tive and self-defeating strategy.
Israel doesn't have the luxury of
playing such word games. The
Jewish state fears the window
is closing on its ability to strike
Iran's nuclear facilities before
they are buried so deep that such
admission would be fruitless.
The election-year dynamic
may force events to a conclu-
sion. Iran sees Mr. Obama as
a known quantity, unlikely to
act decisively in the event of
a weapons test. A potential
Republican successor may not
be as pliable. From Israel's

To the Editor:
I read in last Sunday's Lake
City Reporter Mr. Glynnell
Presley's attack on fictional facts
regarding the Republicans
Party. Without actually using
the word "white people" he,
carefully planted the seed that
it was white people that he was
addressing. Over the years Mr.
Presley has written many arti-
cles to the Reporter and each
time he seems compelled to
play the same old card, "racial
and racist"! When any non-
black writes pr says anything
that he does not agree with he
immediately screams that the
individual or group is racist.
Why can't any American, black,
white, Hispanic or whoever
express his/her feelings with-
out it being painted as "Racial"?
Let us look at some of the
topics that Mr. Presley chose to
address in the Reporter.
The economy is not begin-
ning to bloom! Every area of
our economy, other than gov-
ernment, is struggling to sur-
vive. Due to harsh new rules
forced on the American econo-
my by President Obama, small
businesses and companies are
struggling to stay afloat, and
many have given up and closed.
Obamacare is one of the
absolute worse decisions the
President has made! It is going
to cost more and provide less
coverage. Many senior citizens
are already feeling the pain of
Medicare cuts. Medicare is now
refusing to pay, or even help pay,
certain needed medical costs
that prior to last fall were cov-
ered by o7r health plans. Now
you will either pay it out of your,
very likely, limited resources or
not get the treatment
People should remem-
ber that when Nancy Pelosi
attended the signing of the
Obamacare health bill she
walked through the crowd
with a huge grin on her face
carrying a giant gavel that had
a handle about (4) feet long.
For anyone that did not grasp
the message in that act, allow
me to help you. She is mock-
ing Americans! The point she
was making to all Americans
was that Washington does not
care what we as Americans




.think, the federal government
can do anything it wants. The'
point was, she was rubbing
egg in your face and mine a
great public relations move on
the part of President Obama's
After Pelosi helped Obama
force the Obamacare bill down
the throats of Americans, the
President has provided Nancy
Pelbsi's voting district a waiver.
Her voters do NOT have to
participate in Obamacare! He
has also provided waivers to
a numerous unions and big'
companies that support his
campaign funds giving them
permission to not participate
in this catastrophic failed pro-
Contrary to your slanted
picture, Governor Jan Brewer
of Arizona is a hero. She is
fighting for the very lives
and property of the people of
Arizona. Drug cartels have
completely taken control of
the Southwestern section of
America. People that live as far
away as two (2) hundred miles
from Mexico live in daily fear
for their lives. Why, you ask
does Governor Brewer have to
fight this battle? It is because
President Obama, for whatever
reason, is failing to execute
the responsibilities delegated
to him by the oath of office he
took to protect every state in
,the union. The federal govern-
ment should be protecting the'
border between America and
Mexico NOT Governor Brewer.
What is the President's
involvement in the selling
of powerful weapons to the
Mexican di-ug cartels, guns
used to kill American citizens?
President Obama has been
very tolerant, and even protec-
tive of Attdrney General Eric
Holder. Hqlder has been very
involved in the selling of illegal
weapons. Are we supposed
to be prouA of our President
for the things he has actively
supported that are destroying
America? I think not.
Mr. Presloy has accused-
Republican lawmakers of "plot-
ting and scheming" to prevent
Black and Latino citizens the
right to vote. This is absolutely
absurd; a statement that can
only be used.to take advantage

with being racial. In November
we will be selecting the indi-

polls prayerfully and vote for

everything in their power to
turn America around.

America or destroy it Let's put

used at every possible opportu-

salvation of America is far more
important than card games at

revived by



aul Alinsky never met
Barack Obama. The
activist died suddenly
of a heart attack at age
63 in California when
the future president was 11
and living in Hawaii. Yet, GOP
presidential candidate Newt
Gingrich works tirelessly to
link their names, probably to.
the confusion of his audiences,
many of whom probably have
no idea who Alinsky was.
Absent Gingrich, Alinsky
would probably be remem-
bered only by the cohort of
political activists who came
of age in the 1960s. Hillary
Clinton, Wellesley, Class of
'69, wrote her senior thesis on
Alinsky, making the man sus-
picious enough in the eyes of
the far right.
Linking Alinsky and Obama
is uphill work, even for dedi-
cated conspiracy theorists.
Both were "community orga-
nizers" Alinsky for his entire
life, Obama for three years.
Both had Chicago in common.
Alinsky was a native. Obama
didn't arrive until 1983 and
was a community organizer,
helping families dispossessed
by plant closings, for three
years before heading off to
law school.
Despite the tenuous connec-
tion, Gingrich brings it up in
almost every speech. One fre-
quent line: "The centerpiece
of this campaign, I believe,
is American exceptionalism
versus the radicalism of Saul
To which the only response.
is: "Huh?"
Alinsky described what
he did as making the Haves
share with the Have Nots.
Curiously, for a political
activist, he was never a mem-
ber of a political party. "I've
never joined any organization
not even the ones I've orga-
nized myself. I prize my own
independence too much," he
once said.
As for those organiza-,
tions, he said: "A People's
Organization is dedicated
to an eternal war. It is a war
against poverty, misery, delin-
quency, disease, injustice,
hopelessness, despair and
unhappiness." Hard to quarrel
with that.
Alinsky believed in noisy
confrontation with authority.
Packing meetings was a favor-
ite tactic. And he could be
offbeat. To extract some con-
cession or other from the city
of Chicago, he once threat-
ened to occupy every urinal
and bathroom stall at O'Hare
International Airport.
If Alinsky has present-day
political descendants, they
are ironically Newt Gingrich
and the Tea Party. Gingrich is
confrontational, no stranger to
over-the-top rhetoric, and fre-
quently describes himself and
his ideas as radical.
Several Tea Party organiza-
tions freely admit to hand-
ing out Alinsky's "Rules for
Radicals" to their members
as a how-to manual. The
Tea Party's 2010 practice of
wearing attention-grabbing
costumes and shouting
down speakers at town hall
meetings was right out of
the Alinsky playbook. One
Tea Party leader described
Alinsky's tactics as "incredibly
It.is irony of a sort that
Gingrich, in the words of
Alinsky biographer Sanford
Horwitt, has become the
almost-forgotten community

organizer's best publicist.

Playoffs on the line for

CHS against St. Augustine

Tigers face off
against Jackets
for third time.
Columbia and St.
Augustine are familiar foes
facing off the the semifinals
of the District 4-6A tourna-
ment today in Jacksonville.
The two teams shared a
home-and-home series this
year and will meet at 6 p.m.
today at Wolfson High in
Jacksonville for a shot at
qualifying for the Class 6A
Each team won on its
home court during the reg-
ular season. Columbia took
the first game in a 74-65 win
against the Yellow Jackets
.on Jan. 14.
In the rematch on
Jan. 27, Columbia fell
victimto athird-quarterscor-
ing spree by St. Augustine
that sent them home with a
65-57 loss.
Third quarters have
played a huge impact on
both games.
In the first contest,


Four batters hit
homers in Lady
Tigers' 10-0 win.
For four innings it looked
like it would be a pitch-
ing exhibition but an injury
turned the game into bat-
ting practice for the Lady
Tigers in Thursday's 10-0
win against Santa Fe High
in Lake City.
With the score locked in
a scoreless tie, Santa Fe put
two runners on in the top of
the fourth inning. Pitcher
Taylor Bowen was the lead
runner and after advancing
to third base injured her
ankle and was replaced in
the game.
Bowen had allowed four
hits, walked three and
struck out four batters while
holding Columbia scoreless
over the first three innings.
After the injury, Megan
Shistan's .fly ball to center
field was caught by Brandy
Morgan, who relayed to
Kayli Kvistad where Kvistad
gunned out Sydney Hewitt
at home with the tag by
Stephanie Pilkington.
From that point on, it
was all Columbia and all

Columbia got off to a slow
start with only 10 points
in the first quarter and
went into the half down
The Tigers exploded out
of the half, however, and
scored 20 points in the third
quarter to cut the deficit to
only one point heading into
the fourth quarter.
Columbia 'continued to
knock down open shots in
the final period and scored
28 points to run away with
the game in the end.

win this game," Columbia
head coach Horace
Jefferson said after the first
Likewise, the third quar-
ter helped St. Augustine on
its home court.
The Yellow Jackets came
out hot in the second half

27-14 in the third quar-
ter. The difference in the
quarter was more than

Javonta6 Foster was hot
in the first game for the
Tigers with a career high

26 points in the contest.
The Tigers will try to get
him more involved in the
rubber match after he
was held to only seven
points in the game at
St. Augustine.
Marcus Amerson has
been consistent in both
games against the Yellow
Jackets and averages 12
points against St. Augustine.
Nigel Atkinson has aver-
aged 10 points against

is an ongoing issue
between my husband
and me. It's his disre-
gard for my personal
safety. Our large city
is known for its heavy,
fast traffic and impatient
drivers. "Jon" is a good
driver. He likes to drive
in the left (passing) lane
on the highway or toll-
way, usually about five
miles above the posted
speed limit.
This is considered too
slow for many drivers,
who become impatient
and aggressive having to
be behind us in the fast
lane. They flash their
headlights and tailgate
us, trying to get him
to move over into the
right lane so they can
pass, but Jon refuses
to yield. If they start to
pass us on the right, he
will speed up and race
them so they can't get
ahead of him. He says

discussing with my 26-
year-old daughter how
parents punish their
kids, when suddenly she
told me that she hated
that I would make her
write "lines" when she
was growing up. She
mentioned that one day I
made her do it when her
friend was there to play
with her. I felt really bad
about this and wonder
why she is bringing this
up now. -- WONDERING
It came up now because
punishment was the
topic of conversation,
and she flashed back on
how humiliating it was
to have been punished
in front of a friend.
Clearly it made an
impact -- and it would
be interesting to know
if the infraction was
repeated after that.

Kentucky's Marquis Teague (25) looks for an open teammate in front of Florida's Erving
Walker during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Lexington, Ky. on Tuesday.

Donovan says Kentucky

has champion's 'disposition'

Associated Press

Florida coach Billy Donovan
handicapped what could be
the national title game in
April. The most intriguing
matchup? Kentucky against
"If you're looking At tal-
ent, I think Kentucky has
clearly six guys who are
going to be first-round picks
on their team. I don't know
that Syracuse has six first-
round draft picks, but they
have really, really good tal-
ent and they have incred-
ible length," said Donovan,
who won national titles in
2006 and '07. "It would be a
heck of a game."
After a 78-58 loss to the
Wildcats on Tuesday night,
the Gators have faced the
top three teams in the poll
- Kentucky, Syracuse and
Ohio State all on the
road. Donovan's take is that
Wildcats have the moxie to
cut down the nets.
"The one thing I like
about their team is I love
their disposition oh the
floor," he said. "There's
a certain disposition you
have to have and I'm not
talking about an arrogance
or a cockiness, but there's
like a focus level in terms
of what really goes into win-
ning at that level. There's a
mentality there." .
Ifs helped the Wildcats
(24-1, 10-0 Southeastern
Conference) win 16 in a
row and keep coach John
Calipari a perfect 48-0 at
Rupp Arena since taking
over in April 2009 with the
Wildcats winning their last
49 home games.
"We have this' little
swagger," said freshman

Anthony Davis, who had 16
points. "We just want to go
out there and play hard and
win. We're very capable of
winning a national champi-
onship if we keep playing
how we're playing."
Kentucky's goal from
the start was to win an
eighth national champion-
ship after losing to even-
tual champion Connecticut
in the Final Four last year
and the Wildcats reloaded
with Davis, Michael Kidd-
Gilchrist and Marquis
Teague. Addin sophomores
Terrence Jones and Doron
Lamb, senior Darius Miller
and a fourth freshman, Kyle
Wiltjer, and Kentucky is one
of the country's youngest
teams and also one 6f the
most talented.
Kidd-Gilchrist scored
13 points and grabbed 13

rebounds, and Calipari said
that the 18-year-old is simi-
lar to his brightest star at
"He reminds me of
Derrick Rose," Calipari
said. "He's tougher on him-
self than I am on him. Like
he came running over dur-
ing the game and says to
me, 'Coach, I'm sorry.' I
said, 'Stop, just have fun
and go play."'
. The Wildcats have the
nation's top defense by
field goal percentage to go
along with a high-powered
offense. Florida failed to
hang around even in a half
against this bunch in the
Gators' first crack at them.
"It's fun winning by 20,"
Teague said. "We enjoy
this. We want to go out and
beat everybody by as much
as possible."

Johnson in 3-way tie at

Pebble; Tiger starts well

Associated Press

- Twenty months later,
Dustin Johnson finally hit
the drive he wanted at
Pebble Beach. Ten years
later, Tiger Woods must
have wondered what kept
him away from the Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am.
On a spectacular day
of scenery and scoring,
Johnson blasted a tee shot
on the third hole at Pebble
Beach and then pitched in
for eagle from 41 yards
in front of the green. He
added another eagle on his
way to a 9-under 63 and a
three-way tie atop the lead-
erboard Thursday.
Woods was five shots to
par out of the lead, a solid
start to his PGA Tour sea-
son. He had six birdies in a
4-under 68 at Spyglass Hill,

the fourth-best score on that
course. Spyglass was hard-
est of the three courses,
though not by much. The
weather was so pure that all
three courses played about
one shot under par.
Charlie Wi was over at
Monterey Peninsula and
had a shot at 59 without
ever knowing it. Wi was 8
under after a tap-in birdie
on the 13th hole, and need-
ed only three birdies in the
last five holes. Trouble is,
he had no idea the Shore
Course was a 70. He made
one more birdie and had a
9-under 61.
"I was looking at the
scorecard like, 'What's the
par here?' I did not know
it was a par 70," Wi said.
"That 59 never crossed my
mind. Not once."
-Joining them was former
U.S. Amateur Danny Lee,
who. holed a bunker shot

for eagle at No. 2 and holed
out from the 11th fairway
with a wedge for anothV
eagle to match Johnson at
9-under 63.
Johnson is turning into
his generation's "Prince qf
Pebble." He won the AT&T
Pebble Beach National Pro-
Am in consecutive years,
and then had a three-shot
lead at Pebble in the U.S$
Open two years ago until 41
shot 82 in the final roun'
On the third hole of th
round, he hit driver left int
the bushes for a lost ba
and made double bogey.
On Thursday, he smashed
a driver nearly 340 yards
over the trees to just short
the green, setting up eagle.
Even now, he still think,
about that tee shot in the
U.S. Open. Walking off the
tee, he said to caddie Bobty
Brown, "I could have use
that in the U.S. Open." |
