Bills must be paid beforecontesting them.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA recent change in state law regarding Medicaid billing could cost Columbia County an estimated $1.2 million, according to county officials. House Bill 5301, which mandates counties pay their entire backlog of disputed Medicaid bills to the state, was signed into law last week by Gov. Rick Scott. In addition to the con tested backlog -Columbia County owes $966,551, based on state figures -Medicaid fees will go up about $200,000 a year under the new law. “We have got to figure out how we want to pay the state’s backlog,” said Dale Williams, county manager. “We have two options — take a discount and pay them or let the state recoup their money through reve-nue sharing over a five-year period.” The county pays for certain days that a Medicaid-eligible patient is in a nurs-ing home. In the past the bills were audited by the Clerk of Court’s finance department before payment. The bills were audited for residency, duplicate billings and to make sure patient requirements were met. Anywhere a discrepancy or inacurracy was found the finance department did not pay. This process was fol-lowed statewide by all 67 counties. As a result of the new law, counties will not have the opportunity to pre-audit the bills before they pay. Williams said the issue with addresses and resi dences that were inaccurate billings didn’t start last year and there is a backlog of billing inaccuracies. Columbia County’s annual Medicaid costs have been roughly $1.3 million annu-ally, but HB 5301 will also increase Medicaid costs to Vol. 138 No. 50CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4A Business ................ 5A Obituaries .............. 6A Advice & Comics ......... 4B Puzzles ................. 2BTODAY IN PEOPLEA different take on Titanic storyCOMING THURSDAYLocal news roundup 85 64 T-Storm Chance WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterWEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75¢ LAKECITYREPORTER.COM Medicaid law will cost county $1.2M JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterFort White presence for sheriff’s officeCounty HVAC technician Buddy Isaac works on a series o f air ducts Tuesday at the new District 2 office of the Colu mbia County Sheriff’s Office.

Senator takes aim at gun law‘Florida is in a crisis mode,’ says lawmaker.By BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — Saying he can’t wait for the governor to act, a state lawmaker appointed his own task force Tuesday to scrutinize Florida’s “stand your ground” law after the shooting death of an unarmed teen by a neighborhood watch vol-unteer. Gov. Rick Scott has announced plans for a state task force but wants to hold off until after an investigation into the Feb. 26 death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is con cluded in central Florida. Sen. Chris Smith, a Fort Lauderdale Democrat, said the killing is scaring off tourists and action is needed now. The neigh-borhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, wasn’t arrested and said he acted in self defense when he shot Martin in a gated community in Sanford. No charges have been filed, and a special prosecutor is investigat ing. The stand your ground law that was passed in 2005 allows the use of deadly force “to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm” and “to pre-vent the imminent com-mission of a forcible felo-ny.” It eliminated the duty to retreat before using such force as required in JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterOpen houseState Rep. Elizabeth Porter (right) speaks with constituents David Johnson and Sandy Swilley Tuesday during an o pen house at Porter’s district office at 678 Southwest Baya Drive. ‘The office is in the middle of the district,’ Porter said. ‘This is a very convenient place There is always someo ne here. This is a good place to come if someone has any questions or concerns.’ Man survives gunshot wounds to neck, lungBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Columbia County man, shot in the neck late Friday, has been released from the hospital and is recuperating at home, according to his mother. Two of the victim’s neighbors were arrested in connection with the incident, according to infor mation released by authorities Tuesday afternoon. Jay Edward Cowan, 33, of 314 NW Pitts Glen and his father, John Edward Cowan, 60, of 246 NW Johnson St., were both charged with aggravated battery with a fire-arm and booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $75,000 bond each. Wounded was Benjamin James Sherrod, 28, of Lake City. According to his mother, Teresa Sherrod, he was released from the hospital around 4 p.m. Tuesday. “He still has to wear a neck collar brace,” she said. “One of the bullets went into his esophagus, hit his thyroid gland and then it fractured three of the vertebrae in the back of his neck. It missed his spinal chord by a fraction.” Sherrod said her son will have to wear the neck brace for six weeks. She said the other bullet hit his right lung, collapsing it. “He had a tracheotomy, a tube in his lung and was on a ventilator that was breathing for him for three days,” she said.Jay Cowan John Cowan Dekle: Sometimes wrongdoer needs helpBy CURT ANDERSONAssociated PressMIAMI — The news media are taking on an increasingly police-like role in the Trayvon Martin slaying by using modern forensic techniques to ana-lyze evidence, an approach some legal experts say can lead to a distorted view of the case because a lot of the key evidence is still under wraps. The public has been whipsawed back and forth as new revelations emerge, appearing to support one version or the other. Most recently, the Orlando Sentinel had a voice analysis expert exam-ine a 911 call in which a per-son is heard screaming for help before the fatal gun shot. The shooter, neighbor hood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, told police he was yelling, but the expert told the news-paper the voice most likely was not Zimmerman. “It would be nice to know who was doing the call ing for help, but identify-ing the caller is not neces-sarily going to definitively identify the wrongdoer,” said University of Florida law professor and Lake City native Bob Dekle, a former Third Circuit prosecutor. “Situations sometimes arise where it is the wrongdoer calling for help.” ABC News on Monday aired what it said was an enhanced version of a police video taken the night of the shooting that appeared to show wounds or welts on the back of Zimmerman’s head. The initial, grain ier video aired last week seemed to show no wounds or blood, which led Martin’s family and supporters to proclaim that it undercut Zimmerman’s story. Legal and forensic experts cautioned that none of the media-led investiga-tions, which are done in many high-profile cases, has been conclusive. “The public needs to know that this is a very complex case,” said Ron Martinelli, a forensics con-sultant in Temecula, Calif. “There are many issues that come into play and some-times come into conflict.” Zimmerman told police that he was attacked by Martin on Feb. 26 and believed he had no choice but to fire his gun at Martin in self-defense. The teenager’s family believes Zimmerman, 28, singled Martin out as suspicious because he was Dekle COST continued on 3A LAW continued on 3A SHOOTING continued on 3A DEKLE continued on 3A

The university said Calvin Ross will retire May 1 after 11 years with the university and 40 years in law enforcement. Ross, who previously served as police chief in Miami and later headed the states Department of Juvenile Justice, asked to be put on leave immediately. He earned $98,520 annually at FAMU. Assistant Police Chief John Earst will replace Ross on an interim basis. Ross, 63, said he had hoped to retire in January to help with a family enterprise, but stayed on longer after the Nov. 20 death of drum major Robert Champion following a separate hazing ritual in Orlando after a FAMU football game. The historically black college has been in turmoil since Champions death nearly five months ago. Just last week, FAMU President James Ammons was chastised by State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan. Occasions are too numerous to recount in this letter in which I have learned about significant issues at FAMU, by persons or organizations not in the leadership of FAMU, Brogan wrote. When serious issues arise at a university, it is critical that my office be informed as early as possible. Brogans letter came the day after Tallahassee police said they were unable to file charges from an off-campus hazing incident involving band members and two professors in early 2010 because they didnt receive a report from FAMU authorities who investigated that incident. Both professors are now on administrative leave with pay.Judge wants EPA to do more water rule workTALLAHASSEE A judge wants more information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency before determining if Floridas impaired waters rule complies with federal law. Chief U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers gave EPA 120 days to comply with the order she issued Friday in Tallahassee. Linda Young of the Clean Water Network of Florida on Tuesday said it could result in cleaner water for Florida. But the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Drew Bartlett said it simply means EPA must do more homework.Man gets 17 years in jail for fatal DUI crashDAYTONA BEACH A man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for a central Florida drunken driving crash that killed a Miami husband and wife. A Volusia County judge sentenced 58-yearold David Lee Weed on Tuesday. He pleaded no contest in February to two counts of DUI manslaughter and one count of DUI with property damage. Authorities say Weed was driving on northbound Interstate 95 near Daytona Beach in June 2009 when he rear-ended an SUV. One occupant, 46-year-old Gladys D. Jean, died in the crash, and her husband, 62-year-old Auguste Jean, died later the same day. Four others were injured.Residents can register for state prison alertsTALLAHASSEE Floridians can register telephone and fax numbers to get automatic alerts from the Department of Corrections about prison escapes or other emergencies. The agency announced the alert notification service Tuesday. Residents can call a tollfree hotline 866-358-5977 to register for alerts from a prison, work camp or other facility. Prison escapes are rare the last was in 2005. If it happens, though, participants will receive a description of the escapee and other information. Corrections Secretary Ken Tucker said that will contribute to community safety and help prison officials because citizens can be additional eyes and ears to help catch escapees.Murder-for-hire man dies in Lakeland jailLAKELAND A central Florida man convicted of trying to hire a hit man to kill an IRS agent has died in prison. Randy Nowak was sentenced in 2009 to 30 years in prison. Federal prosecutors said Nowak had agreed to pay an undercover FBI agent $20,000 to kill an IRS agent auditing his Polk County construction company. Justice Department officials told The Ledger that Nowak died March 12 from cardiopulmonary arrest at a federal prison in North Carolina. The Ledger reports that Nowak maintained his innocence in letters mailed to the newspaper, including one sent in February. (AP) Museum to tell different Titanic storySOUTHAMPTON, England Somewhere between the black Titanic teddy bears and the pale Iceberg beer, the Titanic Barbie doll and the Tubtanic bath plug, the global obsession with the story of the doomed ocean liner began to border on the absurd. A new museum opening April 10 in the English port city of Southampton has taken this into account, explaining how the world has reported, retold, and sometimes become utterly fixated on the fateful night in April 1912 that saw the White Star liner sink beneath the waves. Were looking to tell a different part of the Titanic story, said city council member Mike Harris, speaking Tuesday at a preview event for Southamptons recently built SeaCity Museum. The museum had plenty of material to draw on. The ship is at the center of one of the worlds best-known tales and one of the best-selling films in Hollywood history. Nearly 100 years to the day since it went down, claiming 1,514 lives, the demise of the reputedly unsinkable ship continues to fascinate, launching films, books, television mini-series and here and elsewhere museums. SeaCitys first temporary exhibit, Titanic: The Legend, looks at how the circumstances of the ships voyage has turned into a global obsession.Burger King ad with Blige causes stir, controversyNEW YORK A Burger King commercial featuring Mary J. Blige singing about chicken has been pulled. But the fast-food chain is blaming music licensing issues for the decision not criticism of the ad. The spot debuted this week. In it, Blige sings soulfully about chicken snack wraps. But as the video went viral, some in the black community criticized the ad as stereotypical. The black women-oriented website Madame Noire likened it to buffoonery. Burger King said Tuesday the commercial was pulled because of a licensing concern. The company said it hopes to have the Blige ads back on the air soon, though a spokeswoman would not comment on whether they ads would be the same. The spokeswoman also noted that other celebrities, including Salma Hayek and Jay Leno, also are advertising the snack wraps. A rep for Blige did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Jones released from hospital after week of treatmentNASHVILLE, Tenn. Country music legend George Jones is out of the hospital after nearly a week of treatment for an upper respiratory infection. A statement from Jones publicist, Kirt Webster, says Jones wants to thank all his friends and fans for their prayers and well wishes over the past few days. The statement says Jones will be resting at home until his next concert on April 20 in Mahnomen, Minn. Webster has denied rumors that 80-year-old had been suffering from pneumonia. He was admitted to a Nashvillearea hospital last Thursday and was treated with antibiotics.

black. Zimmermans father is white and his mother is Hispanic. The family also said Zimmerman shouldve listened to a police dispatcher who told him not to follow Martin. The 911 call analysis compared the screams of Help to other recordings of Zimmermans voice using a computerized matching technique. The consultant, Tom Owen, told the Sentinel that the comparison showed a 48 percent match between the two samples. A positive match should be above 90 percent, he said. Owen did not respond to an email Monday seeking additional comment. If Zimmerman is charged and the case goes to court, the defense would likely hire experts to punch holes in any conclusions about the 911 tape or the police video. The other side will have experts saying you cant make anything out of this, its all garbled, look how much they had to enhance it, said Robert Jarvis, a law professor at Nova Southeastern University. What has been done with the tape? Has anybody tampered with it? News organizations also used audio technol ogy to enhance a 911 call in which some reported that Zimmerman muttered a racial epithet under his breath. Other media orga nizations, including The Associated Press, said the raw recording was not clear enough to determine what Zimmerman actually said. Experts have also said that photos initially released of Martin and Zimmerman could have skewed initial public perceptions. Most of the photos of Martin show a baby-faced boy in a red T-shirt or football uniform, much younger than the tall teenager he was the night of the shooting. And Zimmerman no longer resembles the beefylooking figure pictured in a mug shot from several years ago. Special prosecutor Angela Corey has been appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to lead the investigation after Sanford officials declined to make an arrest. The Justice Department and FBI are also investigating. Much still is not known about the evidence being weighed by prosecutors, including: The autopsy on Martins body, which could show signs of a fight and whether the bullet entry wound supports Zimmermans claims. Medical records of treatment Zimmerman received on the scene that night by paramedics, which again could back up or disprove his self-defense assertion. Police photographs, notes and other physical evidence probably collected at the scene. a previous self-defense law. Smith said his panel will include South Florida prosecutors, public defenders and legal scholars, who will consider whether that law should be changed or repealed. Florida is in a crisis mode, Smith said at a news conference. Its time for leaders to lead, and its time for action. Smiths panel will meet Thursday in Fort Lauderdale, where it will hear comments from judges, a tourism official and members of the public. Smith, who voted against the stand your ground legislation, said he has appeared on national talk shows where callers have said they are reconsidering Florida vacations because of what they deemed the states shoot first mentality. The Florida brand is being portrayed in a negative light each and every day on all of the major networks, Smith said. Asked about Smiths comment, Scott said everyone is concerned about Martins family. I think we have a great state, the Republican governor added. We had 85 million tourists in 2011. Scott said he remains committed to examining the law but only after the criminal investigation is completed. We should do it for public safety, Scott said. But the first thing you do is an investigation to make sure justice prevails. Then you step back and say OK, so what did we learn from this? Smith said the focus should be on the law itself rather than what happens to Zimmerman because it is continuing to be used in other cases. He contrasted Scotts approach to then-Gov. Lawton Chiles quick reaction to a spate of crimes against foreign tourists in 1993. Chiles ordered Florida Highway Patrol troopers and other state law enforcement officers to provide around-the-clock security at highway rest stops after a British visitor was murdered at an unguarded facility near Tallahassee. The state then contracted private security guards. Chiles also ordered the state to stop issuing telltale license tags beginning with an X or Y for rental cars that were helping criminals identify visitors. We have a governor who ran on getting to work, but he wants to wait to work, Smith said. His inaction is costing the state and our reputation. She said her son has medical appointments scheduled for later this month. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, Sherrod suffered the injuries following an argument with the neighbors. Deputies responded to 134 NE Sunnybrook St., shortly before midnight to investigate a shooting. Deputies determined that an argument occurred between the victim and the two suspects. Deputies say Jay Cowan fired a shotgun into the ground near where Sherrod was standing during the argument. Sherrod then approached the front porch of the home and was shot by John Cowan, according to reports. John Cowan then called 911. Sherrod was flown to a trauma center in Gainesville for treatment. Detectives from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office were able to recover a .32 caliber handgun from the front porch of the home in addition to two shotguns. Deputies arrested the two suspects without incident and both were processed into the county jail. Columbia County approxi mately $200,000 annually. Thats because the rate we pay is now changing also, Williams said. The law goes into effect July 1. Local governments con tribute toward Medicaid expenses. Florida law determines the extent of the contributions. Counties are required to pay a share of the costs for their resi dents who are enrolled in the health care program for low-income and disabled patients. If Columbia County does not pay its portion of the Medicaid costs, the state will take the funds from the tax sharing revenue the county receives from the half-cent sales tax distribution fund. Columbia County gets approximately $3.8 million annually in revenue shar ing funds from the half-cent sales tax. This is a mandate. Its off the top. We dont have a choice here, Williams said. Were going to pay it one way or the other. The state is going to get its money up front to make sure its bud get is balanced. For us its just an issue to deal with. The state is offering two options for paying the back log. The state will give coun ties a one-time chance to receive a 15 percent discount if the county writes a check for the entire bill. If a county declines the deal, or doesnt have funds to pay immediately, the state will deduct the amount owed from revenue sharing dol lars over a five-year period. It (HB 5301) is going to increase our costs for Medicaid, and whatever that increase is, its going to be taken from some current expenditure, Williams said, noting county officials have not determined where the money will come from. The state sends the county a Medicaid bill on an monthly basis. The Medicaid qualifications are determined through the state based on federal regu lations. Williams said county offi cials will have to notify state officials sometime in May to tell them how the county plans to pay the backlog. For one year its a $1.2 million impact for Columbia County and every year after its at least an additional $200,000, Williams said. Its a big hit, Williams said. The governor signed the bill, but we asked him to veto it. He signed it last week and its now law. There is no need to cry over spilt milk. We can try to get changes made in future years, but as far as the here and now its over. Columbia County is going to be expected to pay the state the backlog and were going to be expected to pay the state more for our contribution to Medicaid. Theyre not going to bill us, theyre just going to take it from a revenue they would otherwise send us. Williams said county offi cials will discuss what option Columbia County plans to use during an April 11 workshop.

To the Editor:After reading the Reporter for 3.21.12 on the “One Opinion” column, I thought I might look up my 3 inch thick book on the “Chronicle of Britain and Ireland”. This is what I found on Afghanistan. Page 868, India. 1838.The new governor General of India Lord Auckland, follow ing Palmeston’s anti Russian policy, has decided to take action against the growing unrest in Afghanistan. Fearing that disturbances might leave the way open for Russia and Persia, through Afghanistan to threaten the Indian frontier, Auckland’s plan is to support the deposed King Shah Suja in is claim to the throne. Afghanistan’s former king has been under British protection in exile for 30 years. Page 871, Kabul 7 August 1839. British troops captured the City of Kabul. Shah Suja returned here today as ruler of Afghanistan 30 years after his expulsion. Dost Mohammad, who has much more local support fled as soon as he heard that the British Army was approaching the capital. The army of Indian and Sikh troops under Sir William Macnaghten has already captured Kandahar and Gahnzi. The victory may prove a costly one, however, Shah Suja is no more popular here than he was 30 years ago, and the British colo nial authorities have found them selves drawn into a complex web of Sikh and Afghan rivalries. But they may have suc ceeded in keeping Russia out of Afghanistan and India. Page 876, a columnAfghanistan 13 January 1842.Over 15,000 (fifteen thousand) British soldiers under the com mand of Lord Auckland, and many civilians are massacred as they begin to retreat from Kabul.

A note here in this column is that General Gordon was sent to the Sudan to evacuate troops, 18 Feb. 1884, but he delayed this and the Mahdi forces killed him on the steps of his headquarters on 26 January 1885. It does not say he was behead ed but I think he was. Page 1062.22 November 1921. KabulBritain signs a friendship treaty with Afghanistan recognizing its independence in return for limits on the Soviet presence in the country. So who says that history is bunk? Terence KitchingLake City T he death of Trayvon Martin has renewed the debate about race and identity in America. It also has raised the ques tion why President Obama has not opened the national dialogue on race he promised four years ago. New, sometimes contradicto ry, information emerges daily about the Feb. 26 incident in which George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin. Hearsay, rumors and opinions masquerading as facts dominate the discussion. Acts of extreme journalistic malpractice, such as NBC’s “Today” show running a 911 call tape that was edited to make Mr. Zimmerman’s motive appear unquestionably racist, serve to throw gasoline on the fire. A March 26 CNN poll showed that 73 percent of Americans think Mr. Zimmerman should be arrest ed, and this trial by media brings to mind John P. Roche’s observation that lynch mobs will claim to be highly demo cratic because there is only one dissenting voice. Some actions surrounding the case have been bizarre. The New Black Panther Party issued a $10,000 bounty for Mr. Zimmerman’s “capture.” Old Black Panther Rep. Bobby L. Rush, Illinois Democrat, protested by appearing on the House floor wearing a hoodie. Celebrity activist Spike Lee tweeted what he thought was Mr. Zimmerman’s address to his nearly quarter-million fol lowers, only to find out he had terrorized an elderly couple by publishing the wrong address. Americans who are accus tomed to feeling that they live post-racial lives are being forced to take sides in a dis pute in which the facts are murky. People of good con science may reasonably say they have no idea what went on that night while they await more information. Given the growing furor over the case, it would be an ideal time for Mr. Obama to step up and engage the country. Mr. Obama is uniquely able to lead such an exploration of the issue. He is of mixed racial back ground, and in speeches he appeals to both sides of his cultural heritage. His historic election was viewed as a water shed for the issue of race rela tions. He could use his moral authority to reach across the racial divide on this topic. Instead, he has been largely silent. His one statement, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” was both irrelevant and biased. To some, it sounded creepy, and it did nothing to calm the situation. The optics of the shooting aren’t ideal for Democrats, as Mr. Zimmerman is Hispanic. Highlighting the Black/Latino divide makes for bad politics in an election year, but the rhetoric has been so heated that it may be difficult to pull back. The White House ought to exert leadership if for no other reason than to prevent a train wreck within the coali tion he needs for November. If Mr. Obama won’t simply do the right thing, maybe self-interest will motivate him. Otherwise, it looks like it will take a stronger leader to open a true dialogue on race in America. Obamafails therace test ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW P residential candidates and aspiring state lawmakers often claim they are true Christians and tell us they will let their faith help shape their leadership and policies. Heaven forbid.I have a hard time listening to many of these people, because I often don’t recognize anything Christian in their rhetoric. I regularly find them to be mean-spirited, harsh, uncharitable and often dishonest. Are these the traits of Jesus Christ? I am not a Christian, but I was raised in a Christian family. I know by exam ple how to recognize the acts of a true Christian. Besides my mother, the most important person in my life was my paternal grandfather, a self-taught Pentecostal minister who died in 1995 at age 92. I loved the simple trappings of his call ing: black suit, starched white shirt, black bow tie, spit-shined shoes, wide-brimmed hat and Hoyt’s Cologne. And his zipper-protected, leather-bound Bible was always nearby. Blacks and whites adored him. I began to understand why when I was about 12 years old. He used a corner of the bedroom as his office. He worked at a desk made of citrus field boxes and a half sheet of plywood. I rarely went into their bedroom, but one day as I swept the floor there, I saw a framed copy of the Beatitudes on the wall above the desk. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall possess the earth. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice’s sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. My grandfather walked in while I was reading. He stood silently behind me. I had read the Beatitudes before and knew they were the introduction to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in the Book of Matthew. But there above that makeshift desk, in my grandfather’s private space, the words came alive. I sensed the humility, the charity and the brotherly love in each line. My grandfather put an arm around my shoulders and told me that the world would be a better place if everyone lived in a way that reflected the Beatitudes. He said I did not need to read anything else in the Bible the rest of my life. The Beatitudes were enough. I had an illustrated Bible, a gift from my mother. That night, I read the Beatitudes over and over before falling asleep. How could anyone, except Christ, live such a pure life? The next morning, at breakfast, I saw my grandfather in a new light. This simple man, a fruit picker who always wore a smile, lived the Beatitudes. His church was a tiny clap board structure alongside a muddy irrigation ditch. He never had more than 30 members. He never accepted a salary, and he used the offerings to keep the church repaired and to buy wholesome food for migrant farm workers in a nearby camp. He gave away most of the vegetables in our garden. He invited gay peo ple to attend church and asked other members of the congrega tion to treat them respectfully. On several occasions, I accom panied him when he drove homebound older people to the doctor and dentist. He never had much money, but somehow he always had what he called “pocket change” for those “down on their luck.” During the height of the civil rights movement, he told his parishioners not to resort to violence even when white people brutalized them. I must acknowledge that my grandfather’s generosity and childlike character often angered my grandmother and my father. And I must acknowl edge that I did not grow up to be like my grandfather. He was a true Christian. He lived a life that reflected the essence of the Beatitudes. Who among our presidential candidates and other lawmak ers can say with straight faces that they live the essence of the Beatitudes, that they are true Christians?

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com O nce it appeared as if Bashar al-Assad could ride out the wave of unrest sweeping his country and that Syria would be the exception to the Arab Spring. Unlike some of his fellow Arab dictators, Syria’s president had no qualms about using extreme violence against opposi tion to his rule, unleashing his army against entire towns and neighborhoods. The death toll is said to be 9,000 and rising. Assad had a friendly Russia and China running interfer ence for his regime in the U.N. Security Council, with Iran and Iraq cheerleading from the sidelines. The sanctions against him tended to be unilateral and poorly enforced. The opposi tion, though courageous and resilient, was disorganized with few recognized leaders. The loose bloc of nations opposed to his rule, the “Friends of Syria,” seemed largely limited to expressions of moral support. The U.S. quietly threw cold water on the idea of internation al military intervention of the kind that unseated Moammar Gadhafi in Libya. That may have all changed last weekend, and now time may be running out for Assad, whose family has ruled Syria for 40 years. Under prodding from friendly nations, the Syrian insur gents have organized a Syrian National Council, finally giving the international community an entity to deal with. That organi zation is only a few steps away from being recognized as a government-in-exile. Even Russia, seemingly growing impatient with Assad’s intransigence, is urging the Syrian leader to pull his troops from the cities. Russia did not attend the Friends of Syria meet ing but is hosting two opposition delegations in Moscow. Also losing patience is U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, a tireless oppo nent of the Assad regime. She says the world cannot sit back and wait much longer. After this weekend, she may not have that long a wait. A turning point in Syria?

LIVE OAK The Suwannee River Water Management District is doing its part to conserve groundwater resources by using reclaimed water to irrigate landscaping at its headquarters in Live Oak. On March 28, the District became one of the City of Live Oaks first customers to receive reclaimed water to offset groundwater demands. Reclaimed water is wastewater that is treated to a higher standard and reused for irrigation, toilet flushing, clothes washing, and other non-potable uses. This is just another step in helping to reduce our dependency on groundwater at our office, said District Acting Executive Director Charlie Houder. Last year, the District redesigned its landscape with low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plants that were donated by Fraleigh Nurseries, LLC, in Madison. Additionally, a drip irrigation system was installed to enable the District to water more efficiently. Irrigating our landscape with reclaimed water allows us to recycle wastewater and offset groundwater withdrawals, and droughttolerant plants and drip irrigation helps us to use that water more efficiently, said Houder. The District is saving an estimated 11,000 gallons of groundwater per application through the use of reclaimed water and by installing drought-tolerant plants and drip irrigation. Other customers or potential customers of the City of Live Oaks reclaimed water system include Lowes, Camp Weed, a golf course, a soccer field, and other users located along the current pipeline system. City Administrator Bob Farley said that currently all available treated wastewater is being utilized, but the city hopes to expand access to reclaimed water in the future, even to residential users within the city limits. Other cities within the District that have implemented a reclaimed water program include Lake City, Monticello, Alachua, Cedar Key, and Perry. Reclaimed water will mostly be made available to large customers, such as golf courses, ball fields, prisons, nurseries, non-row crop agriculture uses, and industrial uses. It may also be available for residential lawn and landscape irrigation in some areas. Contact your local wastewater utility for information.SRWMD receives reclaimed water for landscape irrigation


By DOUG FEINBERGAssociated PressDENVER — Brittney Griner came up big for Baylor, scoring 26 points and grabbing 13 rebounds to help the Lady Bears finish off an undefeated season with an 80-61 win over Notre Dame in the national championship game Tuesday night. Baylor became the first team in NCAA history to win 40 games. Even more important to the Lady Bears, the team cut down the nets for the first time since 2005. For the Fighting Irish (35-4), a second straight trip to the title game ended in heartbreak. They lost 76-70 to Texas A&M last season. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comYULEE — Columbia High has started with a rough go of it dur-ing the first two days of the Burbank Yulee Invitational Tournament in Yulee. The Tigers dropped their opening game to University Christian, 10-7, on Monday, then feel 2-1 against Gainesville High on Tuesday. Against Gainesville, Alan Espenship returned for his first start since early in the season after missing the last several weeks with injury. For the most part, Espenship looked like he was back in a groove, but the Tigers had him on a pitch count so that he wouldn’t reinjure his shoulder from a heavy workload. Espenship pitched three innings, allowed three hits, struck out three batters and didn’t allow a run. He threw 51 pitches. Sam Bass came in for relief in the top of the fourth inning and allowed two hits, struck out a batter, walked three batters and gave up one earned run. The two teams played five scoreless innings before Levi Hollingsworth gave the Tigers a 1-0 edge with a solo home run to begin the sixth inning. “The one good thing about tonight’s game was Levi’s home run,” Columbia coach J.T. Clark said. From that point, things began to unravel for the Tigers. Brandon Bryant tied the game when Chris Logan hit a sacrifice fly into right field with the By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High baseball won in two different ways in the opening days of spring break week. The Indians mercy-ruled Eagle’s View Academy, 13-2, at the Yulee tourna-ment on Monday, then scored two runs in the bot-tom of the seventh inning to beat Oak Hall School, 6-5, at home on Tuesday. Lane Pendergrast started the winning rally against Oak Hall with a one-out walk. Nate Reeves pinch-ran and moved to second on a wild pitch. Anthony Gonzalez ran for Reeves and advanced to third on another wild pitch. Kody Moniz ripped a single to drive in the tying run. Brandon Sharpe worked a walk and Moniz took third base on a deep fly ball to left field by Taylor Morgan. A ground ball to the third baseman was thrown into the dirt at first and Moniz scored the winning run. Pendergrast picked up the win in relief of Kevin Dupree. Pendergrast went three innings with two hits, one run, one walk, two hit batters and three strikeouts. Dupree started and pitched four innings. He gave up six hits and four runs (two earned) with one walk, one hit batter and four strikeouts. After falling behind 4-0, Fort White scored three runs in the third inning. Bryce Beach and Dupree had infield hits around a sacrifice bunt by Brady Wilkinson. Brandon Myers had an RBI-single and cour-tesy runner Reeves and Myers scored on a throw-ing error. The Indians tied it in the fourth inning. Sharpe, Beach and Dupree walked and Sharpe scored on a wild pitch. Pendergrast and Moniz had one-out singles in the second inning for Fort White’s other hits. Oak Hall starting pitcher Cameron Cobb had two hits and two RBIs for the Eagles. Lucas Wietzel had two hits with an RBI. Cobb pitched five innings and Chad Hause finished out and suffered the loss. Robby Howell threw his third no-hitter in the five-inning win over Eagle’s View. He walked four and struck out six and one of the runs was unearned. Moniz was 2-for-2 with a double, three RBIs, two stolen bases and two runs scored. Wilkinson (two RBIs, run scored), Myers (RBI, two runs scored) and Dupree (RBI, run scored) also had two hits. Beach had a double and scored two runs. Howell had a double and RBI. Gonzalez had a hit, RBI and scored two runs. Morgan scored two runs and Reeves scored one. Fort White (12-9) is off until April 10 when the Indians play at Columbia High.From staff reportsColumbia High’s Chrissie Reichert will return to the state championship for a third time, when she represents the Lady Tigers’ tennis team in Orlando on April 19-20. Reichert won three consecutive matches to claim the No. 1 singles cham-pionship at the District 5-3A championship at Jonesville Tennis Center in Gainesville. Reichert knocked off Sarah Labrador in her opening match 6-4, 6-3, and defeated Forest High’s Megan Dixon 6-3, 6-3 in the second round. “The second match was very tense,” Columbia High coach Tabatha McMahon said. “The score doesn’t reflect how hard it was.” The final match pitted Reichert against the tournament’s No. 1 seed from Forest High, Loraine Chon-Qui. Reichert and Chon-Qui both came into the tour-nament with undefeated records, but the tourna-ment was seeded by USTA rankings and Reichert does not play USTA tennis. Chon-Qui had not lost a point heading into the final, but Reichert disposed of the Forest player. Reichert took home the champion-ship 6-2, 7-6 (10-8). “Chrissie upped her game,” McMahon said. “She did a great job of put-ting her shots down the line. The match was just a matter of who wanted it more.” Reichert will now move to the state championship at Red Bug Lake in Orlando. “I knew we probably weren’t going to win as a team, but I was proud of the way we played,” McMahon said. “Haley Wheeler played well in her first-ever district match and overall we were very competitive.” Lake City Reporter SPORTS Wednesday, April 4, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com BRIEFS Columbia senior wins No. 1 singles title at district.

Call the artwork what you will — gaudy, goofy, grotesque, great — but there’s no denying it’s new. For the Marlins, that’s what this season is all about. Long overlooked and underfunded, they’ve become a big-spending, attention-grabbing team as they open the sea-son at home Wednesday night against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. The pop-art sculpture, futuristic ballpark, brisk ticket sales, team name, uniforms, celebrity man-ager, All-Star shortstop, All-Star left-hander, All-Star closer and starry-eyed opti-mism: all new. With the roster significantly upgraded, the Marlins predict they’ll con-tend for the NL East title — and more. “We expect to win,” new shortstop Jose Reyes says. “The kind of club we have, we’re going to compete, no doubt.” When ace Josh Johnson throws the first pitch in the new ballpark, the Marlins will begin trying to sup-plant the Cardinals, who mounted an improbable late-season charge to the World Series title. But like the Marlins, the 2012 Cardinals have a new look. Slugger Albert Pujols and manager Tony La Russa are gone and postseason star Chris Carpenter is hurt, so Kyle Lohse will start the opener. But right-hander Adam Wainwright is back from elbow sur-gery, and the addition of outfielder Carlos Beltran is cause for encouragement. Plus, only one team has a chance to repeat as the World Series champion, and baseball-crazy St. Louis is always eager for a season to start. “There’s a buzz in every home opener,” rookie man-ager Mike Matheny says. “The buzz in our place is ridiculous.” While the Cardinals will wait until April 13 to play a home game, outfielder Jon Jay is especially excit-ed about the road opener. The Miami native attended Marlins games as a young-ster when they played in the Dolphins’ stadium, so he can appreciate the new ballpark. “To be able to play the first game there, it’s something I am going to remem-ber forever,” he says. “The Dolphins’ stadium wasn’t really a baseball ballpark. It’s going to be nice for the community to have a real baseball park.” The centerpiece is beyond the center-field wall — a 73-foot-tall kalei-doscopic sculpture that will launch into animation when the home team hits a home run. Conceived by team owner Jeffrey Loria, a New York art dealer, the work has drawn decidedly mixed reviews. “There’s a little controversy about whether people are going to like it,” says slugger Giancarlo Stanton, the player most likely to put the thing in motion. “They might not want me to do it. Everyone is saying it’s circusy.” New closer Heath Bell dislikes homers but loves the sculpture. “It’s colorful and shiny and awesome-looking, kind of like Miami,” he says. “You definitely won’t see that anywhere else. It’s straight Miami. We’re not dull; we’re flashy, colorful, lively, exciting.” The team’s new rainbow logo fits with that prem-ise. So does the matching orange-dyed hair Reyes and third baseman Hanley Ramirez now sport. Goodell: Saints’ appeals to be heard by end of weekBy RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressNEW YORK — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he expects to hear the appeals of Saints coach Sean Payton and other New Orleans officials suspended for playing a part in the team’s bounty program by the end of the week. Goodell was at a Brooklyn film studio Tuesday for the unveiling of the league’s new Nike-designed uni-forms. He says he hopes any decisions on possible dis-cipline for players involved in the Saints’ scandal will come “soon.” Goodell says the NFL met with the Players Association and executive director DeMaurice Smith on Monday to share infor-mation about the league’s investigation of the Saints. He says he expects to speak to Smith again as soon as Wednesday. bases loaded in the sixth inning, after Jayce Barber came in to relieve Bass with one out. Barber finished the game, but a wild pitch handed him the loss. With one out and the bases loaded, Zach Cronin crossed the plate to hand the Tigers a 2-1 defeat in the final inning. “We’ve got to figure out if we’re on spring break or playing baseball,” Clark said. “We’ve got to get off spring break. We have to understand that every time we play we’re going to be handed a win or a loss. In district games, we play with a different mentality. We have to play with the men-tality in every game.” Columbia has a chance to right the ship today as the Tigers play host Yulee High at 4 p.m. Odyssey Sims chipped in 19 for the Bears, while Destiny Williams added 12. The Irish cut a sizable deficit to three points early in the second half, only to have Devereaux Peters called for an illegal screen, which was her fourth foul. With Peters on the bench, the Bears built their lead back up by dumping the ball into the 6-foot-8 Griner, who showed off her wide array of shots over the smaller Irish players. The Bears went on a 33-11 run to seal the title. Griner scored 17 of her points in the second half, even with two, sometimes three, defenders hounding her at all times.

Dwight Rhodes finished at the top of A flight with a +5 for a one-point win. Dennis Crawford, Jonathan Allen, Mike McCranie and Chad Hunter all made a run at the winner but finally settled for a four-way tie one shot back. Mike Jacobs finished with a comfortable two-point edge in B flight, leaving Mickey Wilcox, Eddy Brown and Dennis Hendershot locked at +6 for the runner-up spot. Buddy Slay, Ed Higgs and John Dennis split the skins pot with Allen and McCranie. Higgs’ skin on No. 8 was good for a small pot hole prize. The big pot hole carried over. Mickey Wilcox blew the competition away in Sunday’s blitz, posting +10 for a six-point win over second-place Rickey Lovvorn. Dave Mehl checked in with +2 for third place, one point ahead of Steve Osborne. Tim Dortch, Greg Lyons, Tom Wade, Donnie Thomas and Jerry West were in fifth place. Closest to the pin winners were Lovvorn on No. 5, Steve Gordon on No. 7, Wilcox on No. 15 and Buddy Slay on No. 17. Wilcox finished off a good day with two keepers in the skins game. Gordon, Lyons and Thomas had a skin apiece. The Good Old boys played two competitive matches this week. Monty Montgomery, Dave Cannon, Tony Branch and Bill Wheeler began the action with a 4-3 win over Eli Witt, Jeff Mayne, Merle Hibbard and Dan Stephens. Match two was a three-way affair won by Stan Woolbert, Dennis Hendershot, Mike Spencer Bill Rogers and Howard Whitaker. The team of Marc Risk, Ed Snow, Carl Wilson, Joe Persons and Paul Davis put five points on the board to tie Don Christensen, Don Howard, Bobby Simmons, Hugh Sherrill and Jim Stevens for second. Montgomery’s 36-37-73 nosed out Risk’s 38-36-74 for medalist honors. Snow (78), Wilson (79), and Christensen (79) had the other scores of note. Howard took the front nine contest with 38, one stroke ahead of Woolbert. Hendershot’s 39 was best in back nine play. The LGA gave the ladies their full handicaps in a net score match. Nicole Ste-Marie (75) came out on top by a stroke in a three-way battle with Jan Davis (76) and Dottie Rogers (77). Lightning forced cancellation of the MGA 6-6-6 event. It has been resched-uled for April 21. Upcoming events:Q Saturday, Masters blitz. Player’s blitz score will be added to a blind-drawn part-ner, a pro who is playing in the third round of The Masters.

However, Skantzos was the only one of the four who was in the pot so “Lucky Pete” was the big winner of the mul-tiple rollover pot, It was not quite as good as the Mega Millions but still a nice day at the golf course. Results for the blitz were: 1st-Bob Wheary +7; 2nd-Dale Coleman +6; 3rd (tie)-Wallace Christie, Bob McGraw and Bill Walls +5. The Friday Dog Fight was a close contest with Alan Phillips winning at +4. Joe Herring, Emerson Darst, Pete Skantzos, Chet Carter and Gary Williams were all one back at +3.

QUAIL HEIGHTS COUNTRY CLUB Chet Carter Masters meltdown in the past, McIlroy moves onBy DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. — In the aftermath of his Masters meltdown, one phone call that meant the most to Rory McIlroy was from Greg Norman, the master of the Sunday collapse at Augusta National. Norman had four good chances to slip on a green jacket, the most unforgetta-ble in 1996 when he blew a six-shot lead to Nick Faldo. So the Shark could speak from experience, and the kid was more than willing to listen. “I think it was great coming from him because he had sort of been in the same position in 1996 — well, ’96 where Faldo won, but I think ’86 as well, 1987,” McIlroy said, pausing to try to get the years right. “Sorry, I wasn’t born.” It’s that kind of humor that has helped McIlroy move on — that and the U.S. Open title he won a few months later. Still fresh this week for the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland is how he lost a four-shot lead in the final round. There was the tee shot on the 10th hole that bounced around the trees and landed behind the cabins. There was a three-putt on the 11th, a four-putt on the 12th and eventually an 80 on his scorecard. “Obviously, the first time I played the back nine last week, there’s memories that come back and mem-ories that you probably don’t want,” McIlroy said. “It’s fine. I got that all out of the way, and just looking forward to this week and looking forward to try to put myself in contention to try and win this thing.” Norman’s first big opportunity was in 1986, the year he had the 54-hole lead at all four majors. He sent a 4-iron over the 18th green in the final round, and his bogey made Jack Nicklaus a Masters champion for the sixth time. Norman won the British Open that summer, spent the better part of the next decade at No. 1 in the world and a perennial favorite at the majors. That’s where McIlroy is now. He won with a record score at Congressional for his first major. He rose to No. 1 in the world last month, though only for two weeks, when he won the Honda Classic. And, like Norman, he still doesn’t have a green jacket. But he’s young. He’s super talented. And he copes with success and failure with a refreshing dose of self-deprecating humor. Did he confront any demons on the 10th tee when he played last week? “Not really. I mean, I can’t believe how close the cab-ins are. They are only 50 yards off the tee,” McIlroy said as the room filled with laughter. “But no, look, it’s great to be able to laugh about it now.” It wasn’t always that easy. He cried on the phone with his mother after the Masters. There were days of reflection, when McIlroy realized he must not have been ready to win a major. He noticed when he watched videotape of the final round that the bounce in his step was missing. He was looking down, not up. Joy gave way to stress. Seven putts on the 11th and 12th holes is what did him in. Still, most remem-ber the 10th, and for good reason. Some players bare-ly notice those cabins left of the 10th fairway. Not many can imagine a play-er behind stuck behind them. Luke Donald was playing last week, and his local caddie told him guests at Augusta National rarely play the 10th hole without asking where McIlroy’s tee shot wound up. Not even McIlroy is sure what happened on that shot, much less the rest of the day. “It was such a blur,” he said. “It was really hard to remember. It wasn’t just the tee shot. It was way before that. It was just how I approached the whole day. I went through it a mil-lion times. It’s something that I learned from, and I quickly forgot about and moved on. And moved on pretty well.” A year ago, he came to Augusta National hopeful of winning. Now, he is all business. Winning is the priority. He brought three friends from Northern Ireland with him last year. His parents are here this time. McIlroy didn’t get into specifics on his phone con-versation with Norman, which was two days after the Masters. “He said a couple things to me that I found very useful and put into prac-tice, especially weeks like this where there’s so much hype and there’s so much buildup,” McIlroy said.

DEAR ABBY: Two years ago, when I was in 10th grade, I had a best friend, “Ben.” We talked all the time, shared secrets and always hung out together. I never regarded him as someone I’d like to date, so I never took his atten-tion very seriously. That summer, he texted me and asked me to send him a picture of my breasts. When I said no, he became pushy. I told him I didn’t know what he was going to do with the picture, and I didn’t want to get in trouble. He was upset that I didn’t “trust” him. We didn’t talk the rest of the summer. Now, in our final year of high school, he’s in another class with me. He still won’t acknowledge me and is always flirting with my best friend. I have cried so much over Ben. I miss him a lot. I don’t understand why he’s treating me this way. What did I do that was so awful? Is something wrong with me? -BEWILDERED IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR BEWILDERED: You did nothing wrong. You considered Ben to be a friend, and I assume that you aren’t in the habit of showing your male friends your breasts. It seems only logical that you wouldn’t send a picture that could wind up heaven knows where. Ben is acting this way because he is trying to punish you for not giving him what he wanted. He’s flirting with your friend to hurt you and/or make you jealous. These are not the actions of a friend, and the sooner you accept it, the better off you will be. Ben strikes me as immature and a user, so be glad you didn’t do what he wanted. It was good common sense. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Regarding money and adult children, should a parent help all children equally if they are financially able to? Or should a parent offer help only to the children in need (medical expenses, kid in college, new wash-ing machine, etc.)? If one child has a high-paying job, does he/she deserve any less from a parent in the end? -WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: Before deciding how to divide your assets, first dis-cuss this with an attorney who specializes in wills, trusts and estate plan-ning. However, from my perspective, monies given before your death to one of your children should be tallied and deducted from the amount he or she is allotted in your will -with an explanation of the rea-son why it is less. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am torn between two important people in my life. My best friend and my husband graduate this year on the same day, one at 9 a.m., the other at 10 a.m., at two different colleges an hour and a half apart. My friend says that because I was able to attend my husband’s associate and bachelor degree graduations, I should attend her cer-emony because I have never seen her graduate. However, I feel my hus-band’s having earned his master’s degree is a huge accomplishment, and that I should attend his gradu-ation. What do you think, Abby? -UNDECIDED IN ARKANSAS DEAR UNDECIDED: I think you should follow your instincts, because they are exactly right. During your lifetime you will have many friends, but let’s hope only one hus-band. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Finish what you start. Your work will reflect your interest in what you are doing and determine your success. An unusual opportunity based on a past experience or con-nection will develop if you reconnect with an associ-ate. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Being receptive to what others do and say will be educational and help you gather the knowledge required to get ahead. Don’t feel down because someone you thought you could trust disappoints you. Size up your situa-tion and keep moving. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be open about how you feel and what you are up to or you may be accused of something you didn’t do. Jealousy and poor judgment can turn out to be financially and emotionally costly. Do what’s right and what’s best for you. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t be daunted by the changes going on around you. Stick close to home and to the people you love most. A partner will help you achieve your dreams, hopes and wishes. Focus on your emotional attitude and obtaining greater personal security. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put your energy where it will bring you the high-est returns.

Changes at home that enable you to earn extra cash should be imple-mented. Relationships are highlighted, but caution must be taken with regard to intimacy. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Hard work will bring stellar results. Do what-ever it takes to make your surroundings conducive to creativity and imagina-tion. Think outside the box and share your ideas with people you find inspiring. Develop a close bond with someone special. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You may be forced to make unwanted changes. Accepting the inevitable will allow you greater control and freedom to choose what’s best for you. Be pre-pared to take advantage of a last-minute change of plans. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Approach what-ever is being asked of you with caution. Not every-one will have your best interests at heart. Ulterior motives are likely to cost you financially or emotion-ally if you aren’t prepared to say no or counter what’s being offered. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Promote change, especially if it will help you financially. Discipline and hard work, along with a strict budget and sound strategy, will help you achieve your goals. A secret meeting will lead to an interesting new partner-ship. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Open your eyes and look at the fine print of any deal you are considering. Whether it’s personal or professional, you mustn’t get involved with some-one for the wrong reason. Someone from your past can help you now. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
