BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comA wildfire that began Thursday in the Pinhook Swamp just north of the Columbia County line has grown to an estimated 4,570 acres. No structures or private property are in immediate danger, author ities report. The Columbia Line fire is contained completely within Osceola National Forest boundaries in Baker County, according to Kurt Wisner of the Suwannee Forestry Center. The fire, which started about two miles south of SR 2, has produced a dense plume of smoke that has been reported as far west as Panama City, Wisner said. Smoke is of the most immediate concern at the moment. Winds travel ing out the east-northeast direction have caused a westerly migration of the plume. There is a potential for conditions to become haz ardous on I-10 and I-75. Wisner noted that drivers should use caution and if dense smoke is encoun tered on the road, driv ers should slow down and turn on their headlights. The U.S. Forestry Service is now dealing with the fire. Access by land is reportedly limit ed and dense smoke has made airborne GPS mea surements of the fire’s exact dimensions difficult. Three helicopters are making water drops on the fire. Wisner reported that a lightning strike could have started the fire, though at this point the cause has not been confirmed. Fire expands to 4,570 acresFLORIDA FOREST SERVICE/Special to the ReporterThe Columbia Line Fire began Thursday in Baker County, n ear the Columbia County line. This photo was taken on Frid ay morning when the fire covered 312 acres. The fire is now over 4,500 acres in size. By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comT his time of year used to be the time Terry Marques, executive director of Lake City Humane Society, would see an influx of surrendered pup-pies at the shelter. In the past, puppies as well as other pets that had been purchased as gifts would arrive at the shelter in the wake of the Christmas season. According to Marques, the problem of surrendered animals from Christmas has lessened to the point of near insignificance. Though in its place are other culturally-influenced purchases of animals. Marques said he can reliably count on a surge of surrendered rabbits and chickens from the Easter season come June and July. According to Marques, many people buy rabbits and chickens as Easter gifts for children, but often end up returning the animals because they do not get proper care. “You know, rabbits are high maintenance,” Marques said. “You’ve got to clean them cages at least every day, ideally twice a day and they need a lot of room and I don’t care how big the cage is.” Rabbits, which Marques calls “pocket pets” along with gerbils and hamsters, are often perceived to require less care than a cat or dog. However, that widely help assumption is far from accurate. “You have to treat them like any other pet,” Marques said. “Like any dog or cat, they require human companionship when they are kept as a domestic pet and they thrive emotionally and physi-cally when they get that attention. So just to get one and stick it in a cage, you’re not doing yourself or that animal any good. Really, what’s the benefit for you and what’s the benefit for the rabbit of keeping it in a cage all day?” Marques said he said he had seen rabbits thrive as pets but that it is a time intensive process. “It takes patience and work and attention, attention being the key word. If you don’t give them attention, we’re probably going to have that rabbit in a few months,” Pet Problem Holidays not necessarily the time to give animals as gifts. A shopping cart full of puppies is returned to the Lake City Humane Society Thursday. The problem of returned puppies after Christmas has lessened considerably in recent years. However, offi-cials expect to see an influx of returned rabbits and grown-up baby chicks in the wake of Easter. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter PET continued on 7A By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comBluegrass music and the smell of corn on the cob filled the air while local experts guided fami-lies down the lush trails of Alligator Lake this Saturday at the Alligator Lake Spring Festival. The festival, sponsored by Four Rivers Audobon and Gateway Habitat Organization, offered edu-cational nature-centered activities to families with no cost for entry. President of the Gateway Wildlife Habitat Organization, Lauri Shubert, taught kids about pollution in the Floridan aquifer with an interactive tie-dye activity. In the activity, each color used to dye the mate-rial represented some element of local river ecol-ogy. Blues represented the water, or the Floridan aqui-fer. Yellow represented nitrates, fertilizers, motor oil and other pollutants. When the blue and yellow dyes mixed together they created a green hue, representing the algae that is produced from pollut ants in local waterways. Shubert spoke about educating children about the environment at a young age. “They want to take care of what they know about,” Shubert said. “It’s impor-tant to educate them, get them outside, get them to love it and then they will take care of it.” Betty Fetters of the Blue Roof Grill, the restaurant that catered the event, HANNAH O.

MARSHALLAssociated Press SAN FRANCISCO Artist Thomas Kinkade, whose brushwork paintings of idyllic landscapes, cottages and churches have been big sellers for dealers across the United States, died Friday, a family spokesman said. Kinkade, 54, died at his home in Los Gatos in the San Francisco Bay Area of what appeared to be natural causes, David Satterfield said. Kinkade called himself the Painter of Light, and his sentimental paintings, with their scenes of country gardens and churches in dewy morning light, were beloved by many but reviled by the art establishment. He claimed to be the nations most collected living artist, and his paintings and spin-off products were said to fetch some $100 million a year in sales, and to be in 10 million homes in the United States. Those light-infused renderings are often prominently displayed in buildings, malls, and on products generally depicting tranquil scenes with lush landscaping and streams running nearby. Many contain images from Bible passages. Im a warrior for light, Kinkade, a self-described devout Christian, told the San Jose Mercury News in 2002, a reference to the medieval practice of using light to symbolize the divine. With whatever talent and resources I have, Im trying to bring light to penetrate the darkness many people feel. Before Kinkades Media Arts Group went private in the middle of the past decade, the company took in $32 million per quarter from 4,500 dealers across the country, according to the Mercury News. The cost of his paintings range from hundreds of dollars to more than $10,000. According to his website, Kinkades paintings have been reproduced in hand-signed lithographs, canvas prints, books, posters, calendars, magazine covers, cards, collector plates and figurines. The website touts his Disney collection and offers a gallery locator, where fans can find nearby dealers. Its online store offers a wide range of works and products with Kinkade images including artworks, prints, and coffee mugs. His artistic philosophy was not to express himself through his paintings like many artists, but rather to give the masses what they wanted: warm, positive images, Ken Raasch, who cofounded Kinkades company with him, told the Mercury News. Id see a tree as being green, and he would see it as 47 different shades of green, Raasch said. He just saw the world in a much more detailed way than anyone Ive ever seen. A biography on the website said Kinkade rejected the intellectual isolation of the artist and instead, made each of his works an intimate statement that resonates in the personal lives of his viewers. I share something in common with Norman Rockwell and, for that matter, with Walt Disney, in that I really like to make people happy, he said. He called Rockwell his earliest hero. I remember my mom had a big collection of copies of (Saturday Evening Post) magazines, and that was really my introduction to those great illustrators, he said. Kinkade was born and raised in the Placerville, Calif. He studied at the University of California at Berkeley and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. He said art was a major outlet growing up. I was always the kid who could draw, he said. I had this talent, and it was the one thing that gave me some kind of dignity in the midst of my personal environment. As a young man, Kinkade traveled by boxcar from California to New York with fellow fledgling artist, James Gurney, sketching the American landscape along the way. The site says that with these sketches in hand, the two were able to get published The Artist Guide to Sketching in 1982, a book that helped land him a job creating background art for animated films. Also that year, he married his childhood sweetheart, Nanette, to whom he frequently paid tribute to by hiding her name and those of his four daughters within his paintings. Thom provided a wonderful life for his family, Nanette said in a statement. We are shocked and saddened by his death.I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 NIV DEA searches Florida Walgreens in painkiller probeMIAMI Federal drug agents have searched six Walgreens pharmacies and a company distribution center in Florida as part of an investigation into prescription painkiller drug abuse, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration officials said Friday. The distribution center in Jupiter and the six pharmacies two in Fort Pierce and one each in Hudson, Port Richey, Fort Myers and Oviedo all showed signs of suspiciously high distribution of the highly addictive drug oxycodone, a DEA investigator wrote in an affidavit for the search warrants. Such large amounts, investigator Marjorie Milan wrote, indicates a pharmacy that fills prescriptions issued by physicians at pain clinics and/or a pharmacy which services primarily drug-seeking individuals who abuse the medication. The searches for pharmacy records conducted Wednesday are the latest in a crackdown by federal and state authorities on pill mills and other illegal sources of prescription drugs in Florida, which has become the nations leading source of oxycodone and similar drugs. The DEA says that prescription drug abuse now exceeds abuse of all illegal drugs combined, except marijuana. Michael Polzin, a spokesman for Deerfield, Ill.-based Walgreens, said it is cooperating in the investigation. Earlier this year, the DEA moved to suspend the sale of similar controlled substances at two CVS pharmacies in the Orlando area, and the shipment of them from Cardinal Health Inc.s Lakeland, Fla.-based center that supplied the stores. A federal appeals court recently upheld those suspensions. DEA records cited in the Walgreens affidavit show sharp increases in oxycodone purchases at each of the locations. For example, the pharmacy in Fort Myers went from selling 95,800 units of oxycodone in 2009 to more than 2.1 million units in 2011 good for 67 percent of all the oxycodone purchased by pharmacies in that same zip code in 2011. In the first two months of this year, the DEA added, 53 Walgreens pharmacies are listed in the agencys top 100 purchasers of oxycodone. In 2009, none were on the list. Earlier this year, the DEA released figures showing that Florida may be losing its distinction as the nations leading illicit source for painkillers because of the ongoing law enforcement crackdown and several new laws. Florida also last year began operating a prescription drug tracking system and database aimed at combating illegal diversion of the drugs. About 85 people, including at least 13 doctors, have been arrested in South Florida over the past year on pill mill-related charges, according to federal prosecutors.Ground broken on 225-acre Fla. elephant sanctuaryFELLSMERE Officials have broken ground on a new elephant sanctuary in Florida. The National Elephant Center is being built on a 225-acre plot of land west of Sebastian on Floridas Atlantic coast. Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers (http://bit.ly/ HVD5uO) reports its first phase will transform 25 to 30 acres of orange grove into pasture for up to 10 elephants. The project is a collaboration of 73 zoos.Coast Guard recognizes 3 longestserving membersTAMPA The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Division will recognize three of its longest-serving members in Tampa. Joe and Betty Hagan, and Cliff Martin were recognized Saturday for their combined 59 years and 15,708 hours of service to the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the civilian volunteer arm of the active-duty U.S. Coast Guard. The event took place during its Annual Awards Luncheon in Tampa.Scott repeals 45-year-old ban on dyeing of bunniesTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott has signed a bill that lifts a 45-year-old ban on the dyeing of bunnies, chicks and other animals. The provision was part of a wide-ranging agriculture bill Scott signed into law Friday. The bill takes effect July 1. Animal welfare groups opposed the bill, which had been filed at the request of a Broward County groomer who wanted to dye his show dogs. The ban had been put into place to prevent people from buying the colored animals during Easter because they would often be released afterward and die. The Tampa Bay Times reports (http://bit.ly/ IaemFP ) that while the provision of the bill allowing people to dye animals different colors got the most attention, the measure also once again allows the selling of all baby bunnies, chicks and ducklings.2 Fantasy 5 players each win $126,027.09TALLAHASSEE Two winners of the Fantasy 5 game will collect $126,027.09 each, the Florida Lottery said Saturday.

Melbourne police spokesman Pete Mercaldo told the Orlando Sentinel (http:// bit.ly/HmMtIq ) the train was heading south when it hit 21-year-old Lauren Chudkosky early Friday. Railway and law enforcement officials are investigating. No further details were immediately available.Scott signs Fla. bill inspired by childs deathTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott has signed a bill inspired by 2-year-old Caylee Anthonys death. The bill (HB 37) was signed Friday. The new law increases the maximum penalty from a year in jail to five years in prison for knowingly making a false statement to police about a missing child. Caylees mother, Casey Anthony, was acquitted of murdering her last year in Orlando but convicted on four counts of lying to investigators. Caylee wasnt reported missing until 31 days after she vanished in 2008. Casey Anthony completed her four-year maximum sentence while awaiting trial on the murder charge. She could have gotten up to 20 years in prison if the bill had been in effect at that time.Man charged after allegedly sawing off dogs legBELLE GLADE A Florida man is being charged with animal cruelty for allegedly sawing off his dogs leg. Forty-eight-year-old Luc Jean Baptiste of Belle Glade is accused of duct-taping his dogs mouth shut and hog-tying her before sawing through her right front leg. The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/HD8eRB ) reports the 10-year-old pit bull mix has been taken into custody by Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control. Officials say she has a severe infection in her uterus, a sign that she may have been used for breeding. Its not known if Baptiste has an attorney. A witness told authorities Baptiste cut off the leg because it was injured.

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHERAssociated PressWASHINGTON Its over, and Mitt Romney is going to be the GOP nominee for president. Thats the growing consensus among Republican National Committee members who will automatically attend the partys national convention this summer and can support any candidate they choose. Even some members who support other candidates begrudgingly say the math doesnt add up for anyone but the former Massachusetts governor. I would be surprised if Romney doesnt get the number he needs, said Jeff Johnson of Minnesota, who supports former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Bob Bennett of Ohio was more blunt. Look, Gov. Romneys going to be the nominee, and hes going to have enough votes, said Bennett, who is publicly neutral but said he supported Romney four years ago. Romneys chief rival, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, is pledging to stay in the race, hoping a victory in his home states primary April 24 will give his campaign new life. But Santorum has fallen far behind Romney in the race for convention delegates, and RNC members are taking notice, even though most are publicly staying neutral, preferring to let primary voters decide the nominee. The Associated Press has polled 114 of the 120 superdelegates, party members who can support any candidate for president they choose at the national convention in August, regardless of what happens in primaries or caucuses. In the latest survey, conducted Tuesday to Friday, Romney has 35 endorsements, far more than anyone else but a modest figure for the apparent nominee. Gingrich has four endorsements, Santorum has two and Texas Rep. Ron Paul got one. RNC members have been slowly embracing Romney. He picked up 11 new endorsements since the last AP survey a month ago, after the Super Tuesday contests. Over the course of the campaign, however, Romney methodically has added endorsements from every region of the country. In the U.S. territories, where voters help decide the nominee but cant vote in the general election, Romney has dominated. Romney has endorsements from all three RNC members in Guam, American Samoa, the Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands. He was endorsed by two of the three members in Puerto Rico. Romney may be struggling among voters in the South, but he was endorsed by two of the three committee members in Mississippi, Henry Barbour and Jeanne Luckey. Romney even has support from Robert Asher of Pennsylvania. Santorums only endorsements are from members in Iowa and Alabama. In Pennsylvania, state GOP chairman Robert Gleason is publicly neutral. I talked to Rick the other day, Gleason said. He didnt even ask me to support him. Texas GOP chairman Steve Munisteri said he talked to Santorum for about 20 minutes on Tuesday, when Santorum was in the state for a fundraiser. Santorum told him what I already believed, which is were only a little over the halfway mark and that he thinks hell do really well in the Southern states, said Munisteri, who has yet to endorse anyone.By JENNIFER CHASTEENSpecial to the ReporterAt the turn of the 20th century tobacco was king in Columbia County. Today, the Roosevelt and Travis Dicks family is the countys sole survivor in an industry that once dominated the local agricultural landscape. According to UF/IFAS records, there were 1,900 acres of tobacco planted in Columbia County in 1987. By 1997 it had dropped to 720 acres and by 2012 fewer than 40 acres are being planted in tobacco at the Dicks farm. A government buyout program provided an opportunity for farmers to get out of the tobacco program, explains UF/IFAS Horticulture Columbia County Extension Agent Jacque Bremen. Most farmers didnt have family members who wanted to continue growing tobacco under the present contract system. That is why there is only one father/son grower operation left here, Bremen said. The Dicks family is part of an Extension agriculture advisory group that targets and addresses modern day farming and marketing challenges of local farmers. Extension has provided farmers with information and guidance on improved production (plant varieties, fertilizer, pesticides) and integrated pest management for over a half-century. Modern farmers have better plant stock, better bug and weed control, better herbicides and fertilizers than ever before. Todays technology has also taken a lot of the hand work and hard labor out of farming. Its not nearly as (physically) hard as it used to be, said Travis Dicks, a fourth generation farmer and Columbia County Agriculture Advisory Committee member. Dicks and his father Roosevelt Dicks run the family farm located off Tustenuggee Avenue. It used to take all your energy just to do tobacco, Travis Dicks said. Now you can grow a little bit of peanuts, corn, grow cattle and handle it all right. Things have changed. Traditionally farmers grew tobacco sets, or baby plants, in seed beds on the farm, pulling and then transplanting them by hand. Now sets are grown in high density hydroponic beds in commercial greenhouses from high quality, genetically superior seed stock. Methods are now more mechanized, reducing the time seedlings spend out of the ground and greatly increasing plant survival rate and plant production. In cooperation with the Extension program, this year the Dicks family planted a trial plot consisting of 12 different varieties of tobacco. The information gleaned from this test plot will help farmers in the future determine which plant varieties and water and nutrient combinations work best. Not only have planting methods changed but the way tobacco is sold is different. Modern farmers sell in a highstakes, direct contract market where competition is fierce. Without careful planning and management the farmer has everything to lose. Now you have to make a high yield and a high quality product, but its still a high risk. You can still make a little bit of profit off of it. Your fuel and fertilizer are your biggest costs, said Travis Dicks. You have to stay in the game. If you quit for even one year, you lose everything -your contract, insurance -its hard to get back in. The Columbia County Tobacco Warehouse Barn, located off Lake Jeffery Road, was once the hub of the community during the har vest season. Cured tobacco, packed in big rolls tied with burlap sheets, was hauled to the warehouse to be auctioned. Farmers brought their families and made it a community event. There was entertainment, food and the community even held a yearly Tobacco Queen pageant. It used to be that everybody hereabouts was raised on a small farm, reminisced Roosevelt Dicks. The younguns helped and a feller could grow his crop and the last of July, first of August, take it to the auction. The warehouse was full of people -everybody ate ice cream and snow cones. You could come outta there with enough to trade in your pickup truck or get you a new tractor. Come spring, we would hitch up the mule and plow a patch in the cypress swamp to start seedlings. Wed put cypress logs around the plant bed and nail cheesecloth over it to protect it. The younguns would put a water barrel on a sled pulled by the mule and ladle out water to the plants. Now farmers invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment. School kids working the farm as summer jobs were the biggest source of help back then. Today the crops are planted mechanically for the most part and harvested with the help of migrant labor. In the last century weve gone from the horse-drawn wagon age to the digital age, said Extension Agent Bremen. The number of small farms have dwindled down to a handful in Columbia County, but crop yields are much greater than in the past and done in smaller spaces thanks to modern technology.

W hen the GIs came home from World War II, they mar-ried, produced the baby boom and moved en masse to a relatively new way of living for most Americans, the suburbs. The suburbs sprouted quickly in the farmland that had once surrounded the cities and soon came to be known as bed room communities. Families in search of larger but more affordable homes on large lots moved farther and farther out, leaving even the sub urbs behind to create ever more remote developments that came to be known as exurbs. Well into the last decade their growth outpaced even the hous ing bubble. Like many trends, it seemed likely to continue indefinitely -until it didn’t. The recession brought development in the remote urban fringes to an abrupt halt, according to a new Census report, leaving behind a forest of foreclosed signs amidst half-built subdivisions. Economist Robert Shiller, cocreator of a respected housing index, told the Associated Press, “The heyday of exurbs may well be behind us.” It would be going a little too far to say that the migratory tide has reversed itself, but for the first time in 20 years or so the growth of cities and their inner suburbs has surpassed that of the exurbs. One key reason: Urban areas are where the jobs are. As an example of the dramatic change in the exurbs, AP offers exurban Kendall County, Ill., 50 miles southwest of Chicago. From 2000 to 2010, it was the nation’s fastest grow ing county. By the end of 2011, its growth had stalled and its growth rate dropped it to 236th among U.S. counties. The recession was the prin cipal culprit in the end, perhaps only temporary, of suburban sprawl but so were high gas pric es, long commutes on jammed highways, the tendency of cou ples to delay having children and the growing preference of retir ees for walkable neighborhoods with amenities. And what is the fate of the exurbs? Just as inner suburbs are growing up to be cit ies in their own right, the exurbs will grow up to be the suburbs of these new urban centers. And the cycle continues. T he World Bank will be interviewing candidates for its next president in a process meant to be open, transparent and merit-based. President Obama’s nom-inee, Jim Yong Kim, president of Dartmouth College, has the inside track, though develop-ing-country aspirants, such as Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, are better qualified. There are also many Americans who would make a better choice. The World Bank is one of the Bretton Woods institutions created in the aftermath of World War II. It’s a vestige of the times when belief in large international institutions as the solution to global problems reigned. The primary function of the World Bank is to lend for longer-term projects to reduce global poverty. There’s little evidence such lending has done anything significant for the developing world. The biggest decrease in poverty in India and China came when those two countries moved to liberalize their econo-mies. With the world’s largest populations, those nations are home to most of the world’s poor. On the other hand, the existence of cheap money through the World Bank distorts incentives and investment and results in the misallocation of resources, resulting in growth that is lower than it could be. It also creates tremendous oppor-tunities for graft and corrup-tion, with all their attendant ills. The optimal solution would be to shutter the World Bank. As it is, more than half its cli-ent base can find credit on the open market and has no need for the World Bank’s services. There’s less and less justifica-tion to have a World Bank, other than to keep 10,000 bureaucrats employed. Because we’re not likely to be rid of the World Bank any-time soon, the best way to mini-mize the damage is to appoint a president who understands the importance of markets in devel-opment. The president of the World Bank traditionally has been American, because the United States is the single larg-est shareholder, with an almost 16 percent stake. Dr. Kim, an American, is a physician and anthropologist with a significant background in public health and almost no knowledge of econom ics. Worse, as New York University’s William Easterly has pointed out, Dr. Kim has displayed considerable skepti cism about the impact on the poor of what he calls “neolib eralism.” He prefers to ignore the mountains of evidence that economic growth is the most effective way to reduce poverty. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is Nigeria’s finance minister, and she not only has been instrumental in rooting out corruption in that country but has been successful in attracting private capital to a country once widely regarded as a basket case. Ms. Okonjo-Iweala also is an economist. She has the baggage of a considerable time spent at the World Bank but seems aware of the importance of markets in the development process, and she is less likely to dam age the fragile institutions in those countries than a Kim presidency. In an ideal world, there would be no World Bank. When selecting the institution’s next leader, America and the world have a lot more talent to offer than Dr. Kim. A betterWorldBank pick ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW I n just a few days, I will join the ranks of the voluntary unemploy-ment force. Done. Finito. Sayonara and goodbye. The moment I have dreamed about, schemed about and walked the floor over is at hand. I’m finally retiring. Can you tell how giddy I am?I started planning my retirement late last summer and finally got around to telling people sometime last fall. Since then, I can’t tell you how many people have asked me, “Sooo, are you retired yet?” Not yet, was my standard reply, but my day isn’t far off. There’s more to the retirement process than clearing out your desk, getting the old pocket watch and clocking out for the last time. You have to consider the finances of it and how you’re going to live off what’s become known in the lingua franca as a “fixed income.” That said, even if your income is fixed at a pretty good rate, there won’t be any more raises or bonuses. And that being said, you have to figure out, OK, now how am I going to adjust my standard of living so that I don’t get pinched too hard, yet still get to do many of the things I like to do. And then there’s medical and life insurance to consider, not to mention your 401(k) or other savings and how you plan to use it in your retirement. The checklist goes on and on and I spent months making like a pilot walking around his plane to make sure there wasn’t something I forgot before I started the engine and lifted off the runway. The thing that scared me most were those horror stories about people who didn’t stop to consider A or B after the going away party ended and the first rocky patch-es of retirement – and I’m sure there’ll be some – began. I know my retirement specialists will be happy to see me go because I’ve probably bugged them to the point of distraction with telephone calls, voice mails and e-mails. I’ve even asked a couple of them to talk with my wife and answer her questions because she’s more detail oriented than I am in most financial matters. They’ve done such a good job that they all deserve raises and promotions in my book. There are a few things I will miss about my career. I’ve made some good friends over the years that I likely will lose track of eventually. We all have good intentions and we really mean to stay in touch. But the reality is that it doesn’t happen many times and the friends we made as newbies on the job fade like our youth. I’ll miss the excitement of that special project that comes along now and then. You know, the one that gets you all pumped up and ready to slay dragons bare-handed. But there are a whole lot of things I won’t miss. Please allow me to enumerate a few: The nearly 70-mile round trip drive between my house and my soon to be former office. Goodbye road ragers and traf-fic jams. Getting up at the crack of dawn to make that drive. Yuck! All the cakes and goodies my nice coworkers bring to work. Between that and not going out to lunch each day, maybe I can finally lose some weight. Left to my own devices, I could survive off a bean burrito and a glass of tea for the day. Weeks too long; weekends too short; the ratcheting sound of my alarm clock and knowing I gotta do it all over again the next day. Folks say I’ll get bored. Nonsense. I have an old sail-boat that needs remodeling, the second draft of my first novel to write and a massive yard proj-ect to tackle. I need to add four feet to my deck. Being in the Fernandina Pirates Club, I can now play pirate anytime I wish during the day. I have a young grandson and granddaughter to entertain and spoil and the last time I checked, my favorite fishing spot on the beach was still churning out nice catches of whiting and pompano all spring and summer. It just ain’t American to get bored fishing. I’ve always wanted to do some volunteer work in the community and now I’ll have the time. One piece of advice to aspir ing retirees. Don’t announce it too soon. Folk will bug you to death. But boy, when it comes, it sure feels good to gloat a little.

I f Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other suspects in the 9/11 attacks had been tried in U.S. civilian criminal courts in 2009, as the Obama adminis tration desired, they would likely have been found guilty, if the evidence is as strong as the gov ernment says it is. Their trials would have been in open court in Manhattan and, since most of the world seems to be well-versed in the U.S. legal system thanks to the TV series “Law & Order” and its offshoots, the trials would be seen to be fair. Moreover, by now the defendants would be well into the appeals process and perhaps three of them several steps closer to the death penalty. But Congress, through a lack of confidence in a criminal justice system and a thinly con-cealed desire to see the defen-dants railroaded to convictions, blocked bringing the defen-dants to the U.S. mainland. Congress ordered that America’s great continuing legal black eye and embar-rassment -the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba -be kept open and the defendants tried there. The remoteness and the extreme security of that venue guarantee that the five will vir-tually be tried in secret. According to the Justice Department, U.S. civilian courts have tried 195 cases of terrorism since 2001, 91 percent of them resulting in convictions. The judges and prosecutors of the Manhattan criminal court where the 9/11 conspirators would have been tried especially have great expertise in terrorism cases. Instead, the five will be tried before an untested military tribu nal that has been under almost constant revision since President George W. Bush proposed it in 2002 and is still something of a legal work in progress.

Jamie Davis, born in Gainesville but a graduate of Branford High School in Suwannee County, is a Nashville recording artist who plays many venues in Florida. He and his band recently performed two sold out shows at Double Down Live in Gainesville before a performance at :08 Seconds also in Gainesville where he included many songs from his new album, High Weeds and Rust. The new album includes anthems such as “Closing the Woods Down,” “I HEART Honkytonk,” “Summertime in the South” and the passion-filled “Ain’t Foolin Around.” “I don’t remember a sin gle moment of my child hood where music wasn’t a huge part of my life,” said Jamie of his musical career. “I was blessed to have had the family and friends I have. They gave me a very strong musical foundation my grandma, my brother, my mom and my dad.

N US 90 247 I-75 FAIRGROUNDS MARYETHEL LANE estimated that around 200 people had come through to eat on Saturday, hours before the festival had concluded. Fetters restaurant offered homemade pulled pork, summer sausages and sidedishes suited for summer such as cole slaw and baked beans. A brand new Chimney Swift tower was unveiled at the event. Jerry Krummrich, retired fish biologist and volunteer for Four Rivers Audobon, completed construction of the tower about a week ago. According to Krummrich, the population of Chimney Swifts has declined nationally. The tower, which stands 16 feet tall, will provide a place for the species to nest and breed. It was fun to build it but it would be truly just a great joy to see a bird use it. That would be really special, Krummrich said. Krummrich who is an avid bird watcher said that many species of birds were spotted in the guided bird walk hosted by the festival on Saturday. Krummrich said he had seen bald eagles, osprey, red shoulder hawks, herons, egrets, ibis as well as other species of birds in the park. By FRAZIER MOOREAssociated PressNEW YORK NBC News has fired a producer for editing a recording of George Zimmermans call to police the night he shot Trayvon Martin, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday. The person was not authorized to talk about the situation publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The identity of the producer was not disclosed. An NBC spokeswoman declined to comment. The producers dismissal followed an internal investigation that led to NBC apologizing for having aired the misleading audio. NBCs Today show first aired the edited version of Zimmermans call on March 27. The recording viewers heard was trimmed to suggest that Zimmerman volunteered to police, with no prompting, that Martin was black: This guy looks like hes up to no good. He looks black. But the portion of the tape that was deleted had the 911 dispatcher asking Zimmerman if the person who had raised his suspicion was black, white or Hispanic, to which Zimmerman responded, He looks black. Later that night of Feb. 26, the 17-year-old Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford. Though Martin was unarmed, Zimmerman told police he fired in self-defense after Martin attacked him. Questions subsequently have arisen over whether Zimmerman was racially profiling the teen, a theory the edited version of the tape seemed to support. On Tuesday, NBC said its investigation turned up an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. It prom ised that necessary steps would be taken to prevent this from happening in the future and apologized to viewers.HANNAH O.

Bluegrass music and the smell of corn on the cob filled the air while local experts guided families down the lush trails of Alligator Lake this Saturday at the Alligator Lake Spring Festival. Source: NBC producer fired over 911 call Marques said. A similar culturallyinspired trend occurred in the 90s with the release of Disneys 101 Dalmatians. Marques said animal shelters all over the country experienced a deluge of Dalmatian surrenders in the months following the films release. Dalmatians were originally bred to be guard dogs, possessing an alert and active demeanor. Though, in many cases the protective nature of the breed resulted in unforeseen aggression. Dalmatians are ferocious, I mean ferocious, Marques said. Every single one that we got was due to aggression issues towards children. Marques said that the animals make great pets for a responsible adult, but are sometimes too high-strung for a chaotic family environment. Because these sometimes poorly researched decisions to adopt an animal are often unsuccessful, the Lake City Humane Society discourages animals to be adopted as gifts. The emotional effect on surrendered pets is devastating, Marques said. The shelter offers connections to training services and assistance with basic care for pet owners who have fallen on to hard times or who just need assistance in learning to care for their pet. Marques said the shelter tries to identify why an animal is being surrendered by its owner and then provide what assistance they can to keep the animal in the home. We dont want your animal, we want it to stay where it is, Marques said. PET: Holidays not always time for animalsContinued From Page 1A

Brissett completed 9 of 16 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns. Driskel hit 12 of 14 passes for 147 yards, and ran for a score. Brissett took the first snap with the first-team offense, a likely indica-tor that he’s ahead, and completed deep passes to Latroy Pittman and Michael McNeely. Driskel, who lost the backup job to Brissett in the middle of last season, found Andre Debose for a 44-yard gain. Both sophomore quarterbacks showed considerably more pocket presence than they did in 2011, but nei-ther did enough to make coach Will Muschamp pick a starter. “I think you saw both those guys take command of our football team,” Muschamp said. “Both guys made vertical plays down the field, good deci-sions where they took the ball. You saw what I’ve been seeing from 14 practices previous to today. We can win with both guys.” Both struggled in relief of John Brantley in 2011, raising questions about how quickly Muschamp can turn things around in Gainesville. The Gators beat Ohio State in the Gator Bowl to avoid their first losing season since 1979. And the offense, which ranked 105th in the nation, was the program’s worst in more than two decades. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis left after one season to take the head-coaching job at Kansas. Muschamp replaced him with Boise State’s Brent Pease, who chose to adapt to Florida’s offense instead of installing a whole new playbook and new terminol-ogy for the players. That could benefit Brissett and Driskel the most. They looked fairly comfortable Saturday, although they didn’t face any blitz-es and didn’t have to play against some of Florida’s best defenders, including safety Matt Elam (groin), linebacker Jon Bostic (back), cornerback Marcus Roberson (neck) and defen-sive tackle Dominique Easley (knee). Much of their yardage came late, too, and against third-teamers. The teams combined for 279 yards over the final six drives, and scored 27 of the 41 points in the final 4:09. Driskel capped a 70-yard drive with a 1-yard run that put the Blue team ahead 21-14 with 53 seconds remain-ing. Brissett rallied the Orange team with a 34-yard touchdown pass to Trey Burton with 23 seconds remaining. But Brissett’s two-point conversion pass sailed high and through the end zone. The QBs couldn’t be much different. Driskel is a scrambler who was recruited by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida quarterback Jacoby Brissett (12) scrambles to fin d an open receiver.

GATORS continued on 3B FROM THE SIDELINE Brandon FinleyPhone: (386) 754-0420bfinley@lakecityreporter.comNew-look offense brings PeaseGAINESVILLE T here was plenty of sun and at least for a spring game the Fun n’ Gun returned to the Florida Gators’ offense. There were moments when I had to pinch myself. After two disappointing seasons filled with John Brantley starring as Captain Checkdown, the Florida offense finally brought some excitement. Not only were the Gators passing the ball all over the field, but they were throwing it for big chunks at a time. It was something that was noticably missing from Charlie Weis’ play calling last year. Credit new offensive coordinator Brent Pease. The former Boise State signal caller knows what Florida fans desire. Pease knows that Gators won’t be happy with three yards and a cloud of dust. He knows that the faithful that pack the stands on Saturday afternoons wearing orange and blue won’t be content with bland playcalling. Pease brought flair with his play selection. He brought new life to an offense that was left for dead after the likes of Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin left for the NFL. Most importantly he brought 381 yards of passing from two quarterbacks looking to take over for John Brantly when the Gators open the regular season against Bowling Green this fall. SPRING continued on 3B ASSOCIATED PRESSPhil Mickelson pumps his fist sinking a eagle putt on th e 13th green during the third round of the Masters golf tournamen t at Augusta National Golf Club on Saturday in Augusta, Ga. Mickelson on trail of HansonBy EDDIE PELLSAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. — Two players from different ends of the spectrum each made Augusta National look vul-nerable Saturday. Now, Peter Hanson and Phil Mickelson will be paired together for the final round at the Masters. Hanson, making only his second appearance at the year’s first major, shot 7-under 65 to take a one-shot lead over Mickelson, who put on a short-game clinic Saturday to land in good position for a fourth green jacket. After his day of precise shot-making ended with an approach to near tap-in range on No. 18 for a birdie, Hanson finished at 9-under 207. Mickelson, meanwhile, shot 30 on the back — one shy of the course record — to close a round of 66 that left him at 8 under. “I was just trying to do the boring stuff,” Hanson said. “Trying to hit every shot, put it in play off the tee, give myself a chance.” And leave the excitement to Phil. He delivered, never more than on the 15th hole, when he opened up his 64-degree wedge and took a full swing from the back of the green. The flop shot landed 4 feet away for a birdie that got him to 7 under. “There was some risk in that one,” Mickelson said. To close the day, Mickelson posted a 3 on the par-4 18th — making him 3 for 3 in the birdie depart-ment there this week: Not a bad memory to fall back on should he have a chance to win it come closing time Sunday. There are others in the mix after a crazy day at Augusta in which eight players had at least a share of the lead. Louis Oosthuizen, the 2010 British Open champi-on, played his third straight day of solid, under-the-radar golf and finished at 7 under. Bubba Watson finished at 6 under and Matt Kuchar was 5 under, while Hunter Mahan, Padraig Harrington, Henrik Stenson and Lee Westwood were in a group at 4 under. Hanson, who plays most of his golf in Europe, has two top-five finishes in World Golf Championship events this season and received an exemption on the PGA Tour for the rest of the year if he wants it. His pairing with Mickelson will feel famil-iar. They were in the same threesome on Thursday and Friday, which Hanson spent going on and off the leaderLeaderboard packed for final round in Augusta. MASTERS continued on 3B

Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 3B SPRING: Game sets tone for future Continued From Page 1B GATORS: O-line most improved Continued From Page 1Bformer Florida coach Urban Meyer to run the spread option. He admits he locked onto one receiver too often as a freshman. “Just knowing the playbook gives you confidence,” Driskel said. “Last year, I was kind of a little clueless out there just kind of locking onto one guy. I feel like I’m going through my progres-sions more and just playing instead of thinking.” Brissett is a pocket passer with a big arm and unafraid to take chances down the field. “I love throwing the ball deep,” Brissett said. “I love getting the drive over in one play, two plays, so we don’t have to stay on the field that long.” Driskel would seem to be the better choice to play behind an experienced offensive line that was shaky much of last sea-son. But Muschamp made it clear Saturday that the O-line has made the most progress of any position group and could emerge as a strength in August. That could mean Brissett is the better fit for the pro-style system Muschamp wants. “Last year, unfortunately, we played both of them,” Muschamp said. “Right now, I’m really happy that both of them played. It was tough to go for them because at any level — I don’t care if it’s high school, college or pro — the quarterback position is so critical and to put so much on those young guys on a football team coming in here as true freshmen is tough. We certainly benefitted from it, though.” Brissett and Driskel still have to make progress for the Gators to contend in the always-tough Southeastern Conference in five months. Muschamp has charged them with getting receivers together over the summer for workouts, key to devel-oping the kind of onand off-field chemistry Florida has lacked the last two sea-sons. “Right now is a huge, huge indicator to see who takes a leg up and see who’s going to get our football out there and do team drills,” Muschamp said. “They’ve got to take control of our football team. ... I feel com-fortable our offense will, but those guys need to take the next step as far as that’s concerned.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFormer Florida quarterback Chris Leak answers questions during a sideline interview while visiting for the Orange & Blue Debut Saturday.Masters not thrilled by Woods’ tantrum By NANCY ARMOURAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods’ latest temper tan-trum did not go over well with some fans at the Masters. Woods caused a scene with his boorish behavior at buttoned-down Augusta National on Friday, scowl-ing, cursing, tossing clubs. He even went so far as to give one a swift kick after his shot on the 16th tee landed in the bunker. “It’s not what you want to see,” said Charles Hatcher III, who was at the course on Saturday with his 11-year-old son, Charles IV, and his father, Charles Sr. “Golf is a gentleman’s game, and you should treat it as such.” Especially at Augusta. The home of the Masters oozes decorum. Members wear their green jackets no matter how high the temperatures climb; there are no garish video boards or corporate logos to take away from the simple beau-ty of the shrubs and the Georgia pines. “Patrons” know their golf and their history, and show a proper appreciation for both. “I’m not making excuses, trust me. What he’s been through — largely brought on by himself — and not playing up to expectations, and the expectations he puts on himself, it’s hard sometimes to keep your emotions in check,” said two-time U.S. Open cham-pion Curtis Strange, work-ing as a broadcaster at the Masters. “With that said, you have to be somewhat aware of the stage you’re on. “This isn’t Bay Hill or even some other tourna-ment event,” Strange said. “This is the Masters.” Expectations that Woods would win a fifth green jack-et skyrocketed two weeks ago when he won at Bay Hill — his first PGA Tour vic-tory in 30 months. But his chances began imploding with a flurry of wayward tee shots, blocked approaches and missed putts from close range. As his game melted down, so did he. He cursed the bad shots or took mock swings in anger — some-times doing both. He hung his head or looked skyward with exasperation after the missed putts. He flipped clubs and, after that poor tee shot on 16, booted his 9-iron about 15 yards. Diego Maradona would have been proud. Ben Hogan, not so much. “Am I conscious of it? No,” Woods said after Saturday’s round, in which he limited himself to glares and one angry toss. “Certainly I’m frustrated at times. I apolo-gize if I offend anybody by that. But I’ve hit some bad shots. It’s certainly frustrat-ing at times not to hit the ball where you need to hit it.” This was hardly the first glimpse of Woods’ temper. It’s easy to gauge his level of frustration at any tourna-ment by reading his lips after a bad shot or two. Last year at Augusta National he cursed so much CBS would have been justified if it had used a “parental discretion is advised” dis-claimer. Fans, however, expected to behold a new, improved Woods when he returned from the sex scandal that cost him his marriage and nearly two years of a mag-nificent career, promising to respect the game and the fans who pay dearly to watch him play. “You couldn’t even think of Jack (Nicklaus) doing something like this,” Jon Hayden said. “It’s egre-gious.” Hatcher said he still recalls hearing Arnold Palmer tell the story of losing his temper during a tournament early in his career, and his father being so horrified he threatened to never let his son play again. Now 47, Hatcher was 15 when he heard Palmer speak. “Feet of clay,” Hatcher’s father said. “We all have them.” A person close to Augusta National operations said no one from the tournament had talked to Woods about his behavior in the second round, but Woods is subject to discipline by the PGA Tour. Tour policy states stating that players can be disci-plined for conduct unbe-coming a professional even at tournaments that are co-sponsored or approved by the PGA Tour, such as the major championships. The tour doesn’t comment on discipline, however, so whether he’s fined might never be known. “I certainly heard that people didn’t like me kick-ing the club,” Woods said. “But I didn’t like it, either. I hit it right in the bunker. Didn’t feel good on my toe, either.” Even if fans disapprove of his antics, they still like Woods. Hayden’s family had tickets from the early 1950s, and his father used to make him memorize the pairings as they made the drive — on local roads, there was no interstate then — to the Masters. He said he was “shocked” as he watched Woods on television Friday. “But yet,” his friend Allen O’Reilly said, “we’re follow-ing him.” Indeed, Woods’ gallery Saturday morning was, by far, the biggest on the course. Fans lined up 2 and 3 deep just to catch a glimpse of him. Every good shot prompted cheers of, “Good job, Tiger!” or “Go get ‘em, Tiger!” and even his bad shots drew support-ive groans. After an even-par 72, he is 3 over for the tourna-ment. “Coming back here after winning Bay Hill, when he lost his shot, he lost his temper a couple of times because he’s such a com-petitor,” Dan Higginson said. “I didn’t like to see him kick that club, but he’s such a huge competitor it drove him nuts.” ASSOCIATED PRESSTiger Woods during the third round of the Masters golf tou rnament on Saturday in Augusta, Ga. The good news for Gator fans is that it looks like head coach Will Muschamp and Pease will have a hard decision on their hands. Make no mistake, the competition isn’t over. No team has ever won a championship by having the best spring. But a spring can set a tone and that’s what the Gators did with the way they competed on Saturday. Brissett had the bigger arm and completed more big passes throughout the game, but wasn’t quite as accurate as Driskel. Brissett was 9-of-16 passing, while Driskel didn’t hit as many big plays but completed 12-of-14 passes during the game. While Brissett took the first snap of the game with the first-team offense and came out to start the second half as well, don’t take it as too much of an indicator that he will be the starter in the fall. What you can take from it is that Brissett may be a little ahead of Driskel at this point. There’s a summer’s worth of work left to come, however, and a battle is surely set to rage. Florida may be looking at a transfer from whichever competitor loses the job, but the Gators can’t worry about that. And the Gators shouldn’t worry either, because if the spring is an indication, good things are to come. MASTERS: Set for thrilling Sunday Continued From Page 1Bboard and Mickelson spent trying to stay patient after a triple bogey on No. 10 in the first round put him in a hole. The main visual from that day was Mickelson, the fan favorite, tromping around in the scrub with part of the gallery, well left of the 10th fairway. They were looking for a ball they never found. “It’s Thursday,” Mickelson said when asked which day this week has been most important to this run. “Because at some point on this golf course, I’m going to get hot, make birdies, maybe an eagle here or there. At some point, I’m going to get on the leaderboard. Staying in it on Thursday allowed me to make a run.” Hanson and Mickelson also squared off at the last Ryder Cup, when Mickelson beat Hanson 4 and 2 as part of Europe’s victory at Celtic Manor. This one’s for the green jacket — the prize Fred Couples slipped on 20 years ago this week. Playing great at 52 years young, Couples slept on the lead Friday night, striped his first drive down the center of the fairway, then, in a nod to the cheer-ing fans, turned to the gal-lery, shrugged and said: “However long it lasts.” Answer: not long. He played the first five holes at 4 over before steadying himself with two birdies. He finished at 2 under and doffed his cap to a crowd that still loves him. He’ll have one of the later tee times Sunday — prob-ably not to contend for the title, but certainly with a top 10 in reach on the 20th anniversary of his crowd-pleasing win at Augusta. Couples’ playing partner, Jason Dufner, also strug-gled and shot 75 to finish at 2 under. But no pairing had it worse than Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia. They came into the day a shot off the lead, but neither broke 40 on the front side. Not waiting for a Sunday to melt down, McIlroy shot 42; Garcia shot 40. It was a terrible twosome and when both players made birdies on No. 12 to stop some of the bleeding, they jokingly hugged as they headed off the green. They were embracing again as they walked off the 18th green. “If you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?” McIlroy said in a joint TV interview with Garcia. “It’s good to have this guy by my side even if we didn’t play so well.” Playing much earlier in the day was Tiger Woods, who began his round hop-ing to make up at least some part of an eight-shot deficit. After an even-par round in which he couldn’t control his swing, he was exactly where he started — 3-over par and needing the leaders to move backward over the remainder of the day.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 4B Heat still touting LeBron James as the MVPBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI — Whenever LeBron James gets asked about the NBA MVP award, he seems to answer careful-ly, as if to avoid any sugges-tion that he’s campaigning for his third trophy. In fairness, James doesn’t have to do much lobbying. Everyone else in the Miami Heat locker room takes care of that. And they say the James-for-MVP movement should be going strong. Not only did the Heat win a marquee game on Wednesday night — they beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-93 — but James won a head-to-head match-up against the player who is generally considered to be his top competition in the MVP race. He finished with 34 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds, while Kevin Durant had his 30-point night also marked by a career-worst nine turn-overs. “Every night I go out on the court, I try to play like the MVP for our team,” James told the reporters surrounding his locker after the game. “I’ve always said that. ... It doesn’t mat-ter to me. For us, we got better tonight as a team. And I was the MVP for our team and just trying to lead those guys, lead us to a victory. That’s what it’s all about.” James might have been considered a lock for the MVP award a month ago, when he and the Heat were both rolling along. But just about everything after the All-Star break has been a grind for Miami, which gets Thursday off — James said he would be looking for the city’s best massage — and plays host to Memphis on Friday. Scoring is down by nearly nine points a game. The Heat aren’t shooting as well, teams are shooting a better percentage against them, and that’s all happened while James has dealt with injury woes like a dislocat-ed left ring finger, an achy elbow and the aftereffects of banging his head on the court in a hard fall against Phoenix last month. On Wednesday, James twisted his ankle falling over a videographer, winced and grabbed his back after some inadvertent contact with a referee, took what he thought was excessive contact twice while attempt-ing dunks — getting pulled down by Russell Westbrook from behind on one of those, a play James later described as “scary” and “dangerous” — and gritted his teeth after his finger started bothering him again down the stretch. And even shooting 37 percent, Miami still won. “I think he’s the best twoway player in this league,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He does it in a night-in, night-out basis and he does it in a way where most teams would not ask a player to shoulder that type of responsibility. But the fact remains: He must play at an MVP level at both ends of the court for us. We’ve talked about him playing like a defensive player of the year, to defend all five positions, while at the same time playing four positions offensively.” James’ two biggest plays against the Thunder may be ones that don’t show up in the box score. Oklahoma City had two possessions in the final 4 minutes where it had shots for a one-point lead. James snuffed out both. He ran Westbrook down and blocked a layup with 3:49 left — ironically, it was at the same spot on the court where Westbrook grabbed him around the left shoul-der and right side of his waist and sent him sprawl-ing to the floor two quarters earlier — to preserve a 92-91 Heat edge. Then with 1:30 remaining, the score then 94-93, Durant backed James down on the low post and tried a turnaround. James con-tested it well, so well that not only did Durant miss, but his shot bounced off the top of the backboard. Oklahoma City didn’t score again, and James and the Heat were soon enjoy-ing their payback win. On March 25, James was held to 17 and the Heat lost at Oklahoma City 103-87. “A great player,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said of James after Wednesday’s game. “You’re not going to hold down a great player often. He missed some shots the first time we played them and we made him take some tough ones. He was feeling good. His jump shot was falling and he was getting some buck-ets in transition.” It’s not a stretch to say that James wants his third MVP in four seasons, and in what probably is no surprise either, Durant acknowledged before the game that he would like to win the award. Durant thinks it’s too early to have the conversa-tion — and when it is time, he indicated he’d be like James, saying he’d rather not tout his own merits. “I can’t worry about that,” Durant said when asked about his own MVP candidacy. “If you worry about that type of stuff, that’s when you take your focus off the game, start doing stuff that you don’t want to do on the floor. I can’t worry about that. It’s not in my control. All I can control is how hard I work, how hard I play, and whatever else falls in line after that, we’ll see.” The Heat say they saw plenty on Wednesday. “Two MVP candidates, you have to want that match-up,” Heat forward Udonis Haslem said. “LeBron accepted the challenge and that’s what we expect him to do as our leader and our MVP candidate. You have to step up to the plate and that’s what he did.” ASSOCIATED PRESSMiami Heat’s LeBron James is fouled by Oklahoma City Th under’s Kevin Durant during the fourth quarter of an NBA basketball game Wednesday in Miami. Good SEC teams can still hit the longballBy DAVID BRANDTAssociated PressThe longball hasn’t completely vanished from col-lege baseball. In fact, homers might be more important than ever, even as changes to the sport’s ubiquitous metal bats have drastically reduced offensive produc-tion. “It’s always been a part of our game and it always will be — especially if you want to be good,” Kentucky coach Gary Henderson said. “The goal is always to have a balanced team and that includes power. There are lots of ways to win a baseball game, but it sure is helpful to have the threat of scoring in bunches.” Power numbers across college baseball dipped drastically last season after the Ball-Bat Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) was introduced to deaden the powerful metal bats that made scoring so easy for decades. From 2010 to 2011, home runs were cut by nearly 50 percent nationally. The numbers are about the same again this season. The change has forced SEC programs to rely more on pitching, defense and speed. But many of the Southeastern Conference’s best teams are still finding a way to put the ball out of the park — even if the num-bers aren’t quite as gaudy. Florida (24-5, 6-3 SEC) has been one of the nation’s top-ranked teams all sea-son and leads the SEC with 41 homers. Kentucky (28-2, 7-2) is right behind them with 36 — bashing six in a non-conference victory over Dayton on Wednesday. The Wildcats also lead the league with a .333 bat-ting average and 66 dou-bles. They took advantage of a relatively easy non-con-ference schedule, winning their first 22 games of the season, but really started to gain respect after a three-game sweep of defending national champion South Carolina and series victo-ries over Tennessee and Georgia. Catcher Luke Maile said a deep and powerful lineup — along with an improved bullpen and defense — has led to Kentucky’s surprising rise. Maile is hitting .333 and is fourth in the SEC with eight homers. Five Kentucky starters have at least four homers. “Even when our six or seven hitter is up, we have the chance to hit it out of the yard,” Maile said. “Not everyone can say that, but we’ve done it pretty con-sistently. It’s a big advan-tage because we can jump out to big leads or erase deficits when we need to do that.” Kentucky hosts Mississippi (20-8, 5-4) in a three-game series this weekend. The Rebels have also found a way to retain some of their power — senior Zach Kirksey leads the SEC with 10 homers in just 71 at-bats. Matt Snyder has also hit five homers and is second in the league with 12 doubles. Kirksey’s seen a huge improvement from last sea-son, when the 6-foot-0, 214-pounder hit just .192 with three homers. “It was tough doing so poorly last year, but I learned a lot about my swing and myself,” Kirksey said. “These bats make you a better hitter. You can’t be a front-foot hitter. You have to have a mechani-cally sound swing to be able to drive the ball. If you’ve got the strength it will still go.” Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said a year of adjust-ment to the new bats has allowed teams to remake their rosters. He said power is still a component to college base-ball, it’s just not quite so dominant. The Rebels are third in the SEC with 24 homers. “This year we have a little better mix” on offense, Bianco said. “But yeah, if you look at the teams that are having success, you’ve got to have a chance late in the game to not just hit a homer, but at least get an extra-base hit. That might be two runs instead of one.” Snyder says he’s noticed a psychological difference in the power of the home run. They used to be so common that teams barely noticed when a 3-run homer flew out of the ballpark. Now, it can signal the end of the game. “If you knock one off the scoreboard, it really means something because every-one knows you hit the ball well,” Snyder said. “It can change the game with one pitch.” ASSOCIATED PRESSMississippi’s Zach Kirksey watches his home run again st Florida during an NCAA college baseball game on Sunday in Oxford, Miss. Mississippi w on 7-6. Mississippi hit two homers off the Gators, but Florida leads the SEC with 41 home runs on the season. Florida (24-5, 6-3 SEC) is also the nations top-ranked team.

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 5B US leads 2-1 over France in Davis Cup By JEROME PUGMIREAssociated PressROQUEBRUNE, France — Bob and Mike Bryan defeated Julien Benneteau and Michael Llodra 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (4) Saturday to give the United States a 2-1 lead over France in their Davis Cup quarterfinal. The Bryans, the topranked doubles team, have not lost a Davis Cup match since 2008. They were rare-ly troubled against a French pair that struggled to find any rhythm on the clay at the Monte Carlo Country Club. “We were ready for a dogfight,” Bob Bryan said. “I thought we did a great job of not letting the crowd get too loud.” On Sunday, No. 11 John Isner faced sixth-ranked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in singles. Teenager Ryan Harrison, ranked 66th will play No. 13 Gilles Simon. “Jo is capable of beating him,” France captain Guy Forget said. “We’re better ranked than them, so we have to go out and win.” Tsonga looked shaky at times when he beat the inex-perienced Harrison in four sets on Friday. Isner’s huge serve and dominant fore-hand present a much big-ger threat than Harrison’s shot-making. “He wanted to play on clay, now we must go and get the win. We all have our duties and responsibilities,” Forget said. “It’s a heavyweight contest between two big hitters.” On Saturday, the French pair lost their serve at the start of the first and sec-ond set. Although they showed more fight in the third set, the Bryans did not have to face a single break point. The United States trailed 2-1 in the tiebreak-er, but quickly rallied for a 5-2. Llodra’s long forehand offered match point, which the Americans converted when Benneteau’s back-hand down the line sailed out. “We both served at a high percentage, that’s always key,” Mike Bryan said. “We’re good frontrunners, so we played hard.” Forget was disappointed with how his players approached the match, and said they lacked compo-sure. The tone was set from the start when Llodra’s double fault gifted the Americans the lead, even though France had been 40-30 up in the opening game. Mike Bryan’s crisp volley made it 2-0 and Benneteau had to save a break point in the next game. The last time the Bryans lost a Davis Cup match together was against France, four years ago, when Llodra played alongside Arnaud Clement.

Columbia defeated another undefeated team when the Lady Tigers knocked off Chiles High’s junior var-sity 5-4. After going down to Chiles 4-1 after a rough second inning, Columbia settled down and kept chip-ping away at the lead. The Lady Tigers went ahead in the last inning when Emily Martinez reached on a failed squeeze play when Callie Ward was thrown out at the plate. Martinez stole second base two pitches later and ended up scoring when the throw from the catcher went to the outfield. Winning Pitcher: Shoup pitched a complete game allowing four runs on four hits and struck out five batters. She didn’t register a walk. Key hitters for the game were: Shoup(1-2), Breland Phelps(1-2), Enigiah Manning(1-2), Ronsonet (1-3) and McCauley (1-3). Columbia defeated another undefeated junior varsity team in its next game. This time it was Creekside High, 6-5. Once again, the Lady Tigers had to come from behind. After going behind early, the Lady Tigers went into the last inning behind 5-2. Columbia didn’t get things going until it was faced with 2 outs. McCauley started the two-out rally with a single. Erin Anderson followed with a single. Jessie Thomas came in to run for Anderson and Thomas scored McCauley with another single up the mid-dle and advanced to 2nd on the throw to home. Jara Courson came in to run for Shimmel. With two outs and runners on second and third, Shoup came through with a two-strike double to score Jessie Thomas and Jara Courson. She advanced to third on the throw home.

Lake City Reporter Week of April 8 April 14, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section CColumbia, Inc.Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia CountyBy HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comAfter years of volunteer service in and out of his field, Dr. Ron Foreman, a local optometrist, will serve as the president of the Southeastern Council of Optometry in 2012. SECO is an international organization that provides progressive education to professionals in the vision care industry in the United States and around the world. It has a very noble objective, Foreman said of SECO. Its just simply to keep our doctors as educated as we possibly can and then that transfers down to care. If they do a good job that will flow down to the public. Once a year, SECO hosts a 6-day conference in Atlanta, offering a wide array of courses taught by professors in the field. Around 80 instructors attend, teaching over 8,000 attendees. You have an exchange of ideas with the very very people that you only talked about, the biggies in my profession, Foreman said. Foreman said members of the SECO council make sure to include courses that teach an expansive range of techniques in the field. Holistic approaches such as eye exercises that aid in vision development and the effects of nutrition on vision are also offered. If youre in the profession, you come to Atlanta, there will be a course offering for you and thats why we get so many people, Foreman said. As president of SECO, Foreman will travel within the country and abroad to inform established as well as up and coming professionals what SECO has to offer. According to Foreman, SECO is a widely respected and prestigious organization. Consequently, Foreman has found himself in some influential circumstances. Foreman spoke casually about recently sitting down to dinner with the president of Colombia. In two weeks he will be in the Caribbean, a week later he will be in London. He also plans a trip to Ireland. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterLake City resident Dr. Ron Foreman was selected as 2012 president of SECO International on March 19. Foreman has maintained a private practice -North Florida Eye Care -in Lake City since 1976. SECO has got a reputation second to none anywhere. This is pretty cool for someone coming out of Lake City, Foreman said. Its all about education and spreading it world wide. This is all apolitical. Nothing more, nothing less. Lake City optometrist is on a mission to keep doctors educated in hopes of providing better care.While traveling, Foreman will share knowledge of the vision care advancements in the United States with industries in other countries. We are the most advanced country in the world in terms of education and the care thats delivered, Foreman said. Technological advancements such as contacts infused with antibiotics to provide 24-hour therapy and fluid injections that treat macular degeneration are just some of the cutting-edge ideas that are currently rising in the American industry. For a carpenters son from Des Moines, Iowa, it seems that Foreman has hit the big time.

Gold fell almost $58 to $1,614 per ounce. It has declined 15 percent since September, when it hit a peak of $1,907. It had more than doubled since the financial crisis three years earlier. Surprisingly, the fall came on an ugly day in the stock market the Dow Jones industrial average lost 125 points. Last year, a day like Wednesday would have caused fearful investors to buy gold as a protective investment. Its difficult to forecast, but I think the gold bull market is over, said Cetin Ciner, a professor of finance at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington. He likened the surge in gold to dot-com stocks before they collapsed.

The price of gold, which has climbed for years like a blood pressure reading for anxious inves tors, plunged Wednesday to its lowest level in three months.Is this the end of the gold rush? By BOB MOENAssociated PressBUFORD, Wyo. Buford is a small place for sure, but so is the world. A remote, unincorporated area along busy Interstate 80 that advertised itself as the smallest town in the United States, Buford was sold at auction for $900,000 on Thursday to an unidentified man from Vietnam. Its owner for the last 20 years, Don Sammons, served with the U.S. Army as a radio operator in 1968-69. After meeting the buyer, an emotional Sammons said it was hard for him to grasp the irony of the situation. I think its funny how things come full circle, he said. The buyer attended the auction in person but declined to meet with the media or to be identified. Sammons and others involved in the auction would not discuss the buyers plans for Buford. It will take about 30 days for all the paperwork to be completed before ownership of the place located almost equidistant between Cheyenne and Laramie in southeast Wyoming changes hands, Sammons said. The new owner will get a gas station and convenience store, a schoolhouse from 1905, a cabin, a garage, 10 acres, and a three-bedroom home at 8,000 feet altitude overlooking the trucks and cars on the nearby interstate on one side and the distant snowcapped mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado on the other. The town traces its origins to the 1860s and the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. Buford had as many as 2,000 residents before the railroad was rerouted. Sammons, who moved to the Buford area about 30 years ago from Los Angeles to get away from the busy city life, bought the trading post on Jan. 31, 1992. He plans to retire from his unofficial title as mayor and write a book about his experiences in Buford, he said. I felt my time here has been very happy for me, and hopefully the new owner will be able to enjoy what Ive enjoyed over the years conversations with people, the uniqueness of the area and so on and keep the history alive, Sammons said.

inflation remains under con-trol. Gold’s attraction as an asset of refuge during crises also seems to have diminished. The economy has picked up, and worst-case scenarios in the United States and Europe have faded. “Fear has been gold’s best friend, and so to the extent that fear is dissipat-ing, gold should fall,” said Jim Paulsen, chief invest ment strategist at Wells Capital Management. “We might look back at these Fed minutes as the line in the sand.” Gold has been hit in recent weeks by strik ing gold sellers in India, the world’s largest buyer of physical gold, who are upset over government tar-iffs. Another bearish sign was a surge Wednesday in the dollar, which tends to rise when gold falls. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 VISION: Doctor on mission to educate Continued From Page 1C You’ve got until April 17 to contribute to your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) for the 2011 tax year. That’s not a lot of time, but if you have some money available, and you haven’t completely funded your IRA for 2011, consider doing so before the deadline. And once you’ve “maxed out” on your IRA for last year, why not get a jump on 2012? Actually, you could have started contributing to your 2012 IRA as early as Jan. 2. In fact, if you can get into the habit of fully funding your IRA each January, you’ll give your money 15 extra months of growth potential, as opposed to waiting until mid-April of the following year. If you factor in all the years you’ll be contributing to your IRA before you retire, those extra months of growth opportunities, repeated over decades, could end up providing you with a fair amount of extra cash when you start tapping into your IRA at retirement. 2IFRXUVH\RXPD\QRWQGLWDOOWKDWHDV\ to come up with the full IRA contribution amount at one time.

If you received that amount in 2012, and you applied it toward your IRA, you would already have met half the contribution limit (if you are 50 or older) or more than half (if you’re younger than 50). ‡7DNHDGYDQWDJHRILQWHUHVWSD\PHQWV RUGLYLGHQGV If you own income-producing LQYHVWPHQWV\RXPD\QGWKDWWKH\FDQKHOSyou fund your IRA early.

And you can do the same thing with any interest payments you receive from bonds. ‡3XWRWKHUZLQGIDOOVLQWR\RXU,5$ If you receive a windfall, such as a bonus from your employer or a gift of cash, think about putting it into your IRA. If none of these options present themselves, and you can’t afford to write out a big check to fund your IRA very early in the year, do the best you can to reach the contribution limit as soon as possible. To make this happen, consider setting up a monthly automatic transfer from your checking or savings account into your IRA.

He first served as a Florida Trustee, then as Secretary of the Executive Committee. Then he became treasurer, vice pres ident, and president-elect. Locally, Foreman has served as the Lion’s Club president twice, chairman of the March of Dimes and vice president of the Chamber of Commerce. All of this with a bustling private practice, three sons and six grandchildren. “It’s done for the love of the profession, that’s kind of a hokey comment but it’s true. If you don’t care about it you are not going to sacri fice all the time and travel,” Foreman said. the buyer, said the buyer was excited to own a “piece of the United States.” But she declined to discuss the buyer’s future plans for Buford. Weston said the buyer and a companion arrived in Wyoming — their first trip to the United States — on Monday, touring Cheyenne and the University of Wyoming at Laramie before the auction. Williams & Williams Co. of Tulsa, Okla., conducted the auction on a sunny, windy day outside the trad ing post, which has been closed since Dec. 31. The number of bidders was not released. Dozens of people, includ ing some of the 125 resi dents who live in remote areas and get their mail at the outdoor post office boxes on the property, showed up for the event. Officials with Williams & Williams stood out in their business suits among the locals dressed in jeans and western attire. Inside the convenience store, most of the candy, snacks, pop, beer and all the Marlboro cigarettes had been sold off already. Bags of charcoal, whistles made from animal antlers and dozens of T-shirts proclaim ing Buford as the smallest town in the United States remained unsold. Wearing a weather beaten cowboy hat, Gary Crawford, who lives about 4.5 miles northeast of the trading post — “Post Office Box 7” — said the trading post is important to the surround ing residents who mostly live on widely scattered ranches. “At different times, this has been a community gathering place where you caught up with your neigh bors and shoot the breeze, learn what’s going on, who is around,” Crawford said. He looked forward to meeting the new owner. “I think we may have very nice, new neighbors,” he said.TOWN: Small Wyoming town sold Continued From Page 1C Name That Company@kiXZ\dpiffkjYXZbkfX(0+' [i`m\$`ei\jkXliXekn`k_ZXi$_fg j\im`Z\%=i\eZ_]i`\ji\gcXZ\[gfkXkf Z_`gjfedpd\el`e(0+0#k_\jXd\ p\Xik_XkKi`gc\K_`ZbD`cbj_Xb\j [\Ylk\[%Kf[Xp@dk_\nfic[jc\X[$ `e^i\jkXliXeki\kX`c\i#n`k_dfi\k_Xe **#'''cfZXk`fej%@j\im\e\Xicp-/d`c$ c`feg\fgc\`e((0Zfleki`\j\XZ_[Xp%@]pfl[ jg\ek)#),'fe(''j_Xi\jf]dpjkfZbn_\e @n\ekglYc`Z`e(0-,#pfl[_Xm\.+#*-'j_Xi\j kf[Xp[l\kf()jkfZbjgc`kj #nfik_dfi\k_Xe .d`cc`fe%@Xcjf_\cgdfi\k_Xe+d`cc`fe]Xd`c` \j n`k_j`ZbZ_`c[i\eXeelXccp%N_fXd@6Know the answer?

Its market share in microprocessors, desktop proces-sors, mobile processors and server processors tops 75 percent in each category. It doesn’t have much of a presence in smartphone and tablet processors, but it’s addressing that shortly, though some fear it may be arriving too late to the party. There’s a lot to like about Intel. While many technology compa-nies pay no dividend, needing to plow any excess cash into fueling growth, Intel was recently sporting a 3.1 percent dividend yield, and it has been hiking its dividend by more than 25 percent annually, on average, over the past 15 years. It can afford to, with roughly $15 bil-lion in cash and short-term invest-ments on its balance sheet. It’s investing heavily in its future, as well, beefing up its research and development (R&D) spending significantly in recent years. It has announced, for example, that it’s dedicating $100 million toward accelerating the development of technology in the auto industry. And along with IBM and others, Intel is investing $4.4 billion over five years to create a semiconductor R&D hub in New York to develop next-generation chip technology.

LIFE Sunday, April 8, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Jimbos Log Kitchen in Homerville, Georgia has been Putting on the Hog since 1936. Homerville is 65 miles north of Lake City on Highway 441. When you get to Homerville turn left at the second traffic light (there are only two) and go west on Dame Avenue about a mile. Taste Buddies were joined by Carolyn Castagna, Pat Vanous, Sandra Foreman, Rosemary Coleman and Diane LeGette recently for lunch at Jimbos and we put a taste of the South in our mouths in one of the best Southern traditions, bar-bque. On your right as you enter Jimbos is an open pit oven where stacks of chickens and roasts are browning and spitting over hot coals. The smell is tantalizing and makes your mouth water before you even sit down. Jimbos is owned and operated by Mark Steedley and has been a family operation since it opened in 1936. Mark has added many of todays touches and you will find something to appeal to everyones appetite. The menu has a wide range of selections including the usual bar-b-que plates of chicken, pork and beef. Daily except Saturday there is a huge buffet with many selections including fried chicken, ham, squash casserole, cornbread dressing, green beans, full salad bar and usually banana pudding and peach cobbler. The selections change daily but there is a wide range of just good home cooking available. Some of the other items off the menu are steaks, shrimp, catfish, grilled ham steak, Brunswick stew, flower pot bread, bar-b-que nachos and numerous salads. A favorite at our table on our recent visit was the bar-b-que chicken sandwich generously filled with chopped chicken. The small one is $3.99 and the large one is $4.99. Go for the large or youll be wishing that you had. The chicken is finely chopped, sauced and the whole thing is then placed on a press. The bun comes out steaming hot and crispy toasted. Pour more of the warm sauce on that and you are a happy camper. We also tried the pork plate, brisket sandwich, pork sandwich, the most delicious French fries which are battered and the ultimate favorite was the battered and fried corn on the cob. It was unanimous that the fried corn on the cob was worth the trip. The dcor is South Georgia rustic with old signs and farm equipment adorning the walls. A nice touch is a large Taste Buddies visit Homerville Story ideas? Contact Robert BridgesEditor 754-0428rbridges@lakecityreporter.com Lake City Reporter BE JANEBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comWhen the days get longer and hotter locals head outside to fire up the grill or smoker. But for Thomas Henry of Lake City barbecuing is a sport without an off-season. Henrys Budmeisters BBQ Team has won nine grand champion titles in eight years at competitions across the southeast. Henry and Josh Henry, his son and grilling partner, compete nearly every weekend. Last weekend the duo won second place in pork and chicken categories at the Junior League of Ocalas Pig Out BBQ Bash. This weekend the team will be in Tavares for the Planes, Trains & BBQ competition. They won a grand champion title March 10 at the Pig on the Pond invitational competition in Clermont. At the Fire Ant Festival BBQ Bash in Ashburn, Ga. on March 23 and 24, the team won third overall, first in ribs and third in pork. In Lake City Budmeisters took home grand champion at Septembers Smokin Pig Fest. They also took home first in ribs and pork. The team is sponsored by By MATTHEW BROWNAssociated PressBILLINGS, Mont. Floyd Creeky Creekmore is one of the quieter acts in the circus, his larger-than-life clown shoes shuffling methodically as he works the crowd, igniting surprised giggles and slack-jawed wonder from children that look up to encounter Creekmores wrinkled eyes smiling through thick makeup. At 95 years old, the former Montana rancher recently dubbed the oldest performing clown in the world has fewer magic tricks up his oversized sleeves than he once did. He gave up juggling several years ago after a stroke, and has long since parked the home-made bicycle he once incorporated into his acts. But when the Shrine Circus comes through Billings, where Creekmore lives with his 96-year-old wife, Betty, Creeky the Clown returns to life. At home in his kitchen, while Betty dozes in the living room, Creekmore pulls on a multi-colored, striped jacket and dons a bright orange wig topped by a yellow hat. He glues on a rubber nose, carefully ties his shoes. When his shaky right hand sends a line of make-up askew on one side of his face, Creekmore just makes the other side a little crooked, too. Ill stay back from the crowd so they dont notice, he says. Others have laid claim to the title of worlds oldest clown, including an 81-year-old member of the Moscow Circus, Oleg The Sun Clown Popov and Andy Bumbo Beyer of Santa Ana, Calif., who was widely publicized as the oldest until his retirement three years ago at the age of 91. But turns it out that Creekmore had a 20-month advantage all along, clowning away in his low-key style What exactly is Gardening North Florida style? We feel it encompasses everything positive about living and growing in this breathtakingly beautiful and dynamic part of the country. Some of the benefits of home gardening are added beauty, value, enjoyment, food and health. North Florida Gardening is a style that consciously eliminates wasteful water, fertilizer and chemical usage while achieving these premiums. We have a lot to gain by gardening, but we also have too much to lose if we use the wrong cultural practices for North Florida. All of the reasons that made you put down roots in Columbia County, literally and figuratively, are the same reasons to make informed and responsible choices. Deep sandy soils, intense summer heat, rainy seasons and drought a concoction of these factors and others make North Floridas gardening possibilities very unique and challenging. But combine this with the porous nature of the karst soil understructure leading to the aquifer, and we become responsible to every living thing when we choose to manipulate the land above.

Budweiser North Florida Sales and First Street Music and Sound Co. of Lake City. For Thomas Henry, Lake City public works director, the passion for cooking started early. Mom taught us to cook all kinds of things, said Henry, the youngest of five brothers. Grilling and smoking is his favorite way to cook just about everything, he said. Like most competitive barbecuers, Henry has secret techniques developed over years of practice. Competition is very stressful, he said. Teams are judged on their pork, chicken, ribs and beef brisket based on a point system. Events are timed, so their is no room for error, he said. Low and slow is key for good barbecue, he said. Trying to cook too fast is the biggest mistake people make, he said. Also because beer and barbecue go well together, people usually get drunk, forget about the fire and burn the meat, he said. In fact, cooking foods quickly over an open flame is grilling. Barbecuing uses indirect heat and smoke to slow cook food over several hours. Quality meat, a good grill and a good teammate are the essential for competitions, he said. Grocery store butchers can help a backyard barbecuer pick out a good cut of meat with enough marbling for good flavor, he said. A flavorful dry rub and injection is also important for tender, tasty meat, he said. Some people get scared of big chunks of meat, he said, as thicker cuts are harder to cook throughly with drying out. For a Boston butt, Henry uses his own hickory-bacon rub and an injection of almost equal parts apple juice and dissolved sugar. For about nine pounds of meat, hed smoke it for about nine or ten hours with hickory and peach wood, he said. The public will get a taste of Budmeisters creations in June when Henrys Award Winning Bar-B-Q, a concession trailer near Harveys Supermarket, opens with Josh Henry manning the kitchen.

Thats only four business cards each business day. However, there are good and bad business cards, so Ill be offering some pointers. Often, your business card is the first impression of you and your business. First, here are the NEVERS. 1. NEVER use cards that you get for free because you allow the printers name on the back of the card. Youll look cheap. 2. NEVER use a card with information that is scratched out. Business cards are cheap! Print new ones. 3. NEVER use fill-in-theblank cards. It looks like the employee using it is unimportant or short-term for the company. 4. NEVER use outdated pictures of yourself. 5. NEVER use a font size less than 10 points (8 at the very least). If your customer cant read it without glasses, its ineffective. 6. NEVER carry your cards in your wallet it makes them look shopworn and the edges are bent. Use a card case. 7. NEVER put your price list on the back. It will eventually become outdated and yet those cards will still be out in the market place. 8. NEVER make your own cards on a printer. If its an ink jet, the cards smear when they get wet. Secondly, everyone sees the perforations on the card paper and knows theyre homemade. 9. NEVER hand out business cards like youre dealing playing cards. Always include a comment with the card that will give the person a reason to keep it. Business cards are so inexpensive that you can afford to print several different designs and test them. Which one gets the most comments? Which one generates the most leads? Here are the MUSTS: 1. First, your card should look and feel professional. Spend the extra money to have your card professionally printed on quality cardstock, 80 to 100 lbs. 2. Have a professionally designed logo. It should be used on all of your business branding. Colors, fonts, and pictures should be the same on your sign, your uniforms, vehicles, and your cards, stationary, and invoices. 3. Include your unique slogan or tag line that identifies your business, especially if your business name doesnt reveal what your business does, for instance: Smith and Company. Stay away from corny slogans that say nothing about your business, like Where the customer is king. 4. Include all your important contact info: address, web site, social network, Skype phone number, fax, cell phone. 5. Use color. Avoid black and white cards. 6. If youre not sure someone remembers your name, simply hand them a business card and save them the embarrassment. 7. ALWAYS carry your business cards. Keep some in your car. Never say Google me because you dont have a card. Its especially important to carry business cards if your name is oddly spelled (like mine) and people cant find you because they cant spell it or if you use only cell phones are arent listed in the regular phone books. You may CONSIDER: 1. Printing the card vertically, not horizontally. 2. Choosing a different size from the standard 3.5 x 2 business card. 3. Using a die cut, so that the card stands out. For instance, use rounded corners, not square. Have a design cut out of the middle of the card. Choose a non-rectangular shape a circle or a triangle. 4. Using something other than card stock. I know one company who uses poker chips as business cards. 5. Making your card into a mini-brochure by making it a tri-fold. 6. Magnetizing it. 7. Printing on both sides to be able to offer more information. However, I favor leaving the back side blank because I often use it for notes. 8. Putting a map on your card back so clients can find you. Backs of cards can also be used for appointment dates, discount coupons, or loyalty cards. 9. Making your card stand out by using not paper, but wood, steel, plastic, leather, or foil. Make it holographic. Make it a mini-DVD. Attach it to a mini calendar. Consider a pop-up or two-sided folding card. Laminate it. Foil stamp or emboss it. Use reverse printing (white type on a dark background). Use a zippered card or use grommets. 10. Buying 1,000 2,000 cards is not much more expensive than buying 250 or 500. The most powerful marketing tool you have is your business card because you hand them out personally and thats the beginning of a business relationship. There are certainly many choices for a business card and mistakes to avoid. However, the biggest mistake is: cards that arent distributed. So, be sure youre giving out at least four business cards each day. Even the best designed business card works only if its used. Dr. Carder is the business professor at Florida Gateway College. Registration for summer and fall semesters 2012 will begin on April 11. April is typically one of our driest months, so this is a good time to consider ways to conserve moisture in the lawn and garden. A fresh coat of mulch is not only attractive, but it helps to hold moisture in the soil and keep weed germination down. A series of rain barrels will effectively harvest water during any passing rain showers for use later. Careful placement of landscape drip or micro-irrigation lines will put the water only where needed and cut down on waste. All southern lawn grasses are not to be treated the same. Do you know what is growing in your lawn or the growth requirements? Centipedegrass will decline if you treat it like your neighbors St. Augustinegrass. There are times of the year when the lawn will benefit from fertilizer and other times when the fertilizer will not be utilized. Pesticides may have a place in pest management, but by knowing how to care for your particular lawn grass, much chemical use can be avoided. Gardening North Florida Style is all about North Florida. It involves understanding the soil, the plants that thrive and the proper care needed to create pleasant landscapes and bountiful gardens. And caring about our environment and precious natural resources.

He now carries the imprimatur of Guinness World Records, which declared him worlds oldest performing clown in February after friends applied on his behalf. Fellow performers and family members says Creekmore has started to slow down, yet gives no sign of ending his periodic performances. Even if his body is telling him no, his mind wont stop, said grandson Tom McCraw. Back in his kitchen, Creeky is almost ready to go. He picks out a disappearing handkerchief and a gag-rope as props, offers a goodbye to Betty Doesnt he look good? she remarks from the dining room table and eases into his sons Volkswagen Beetle. A few minutes later hes mounting the steps into the crowded Shrine Auditorium. Just inside the entrance, hes approached by gaggles of glow-stick waving, popcorn-spilling children. Creeky shakes hands, tries out his rope trick, throws out grins. Dont pinch the nose, he warns an over-eager boy sporting a Mohawk haircut. Creeky stays on his floppy feet through the flashing lights of the tiger tamers act, endures the roar of a daredevil motorcycle act accompanied by hard-thumping rock and roll. When some jugglers take the stage Creeky ducks out to the lobby for a quick rest, then is back at his post in time to see a favorite performance, a dog act that includes a pair of long-jumping Afghans and a massive St. Bernard in a tight red dress. During intermission Creeky is competing for the crowds attention with elephant rides and a 7-foot-tall Chuck E. Cheese. His voice barely audible amid the din, Creeky manages to spark laughter with each brief interaction. Its a routine Creekmore nailed down over eight decades, since his introduction to clowning in the 1930s. When the Barnum and Bailey Circus passed through the Montana city of Great Falls and other youths sought odd jobs in exchange for tickets to the show, Creekmore says he sought out the clowns, looking for insights. At 15, Creekmore had moved out of his familys house to work on a string of central Montana ranches while he put himself through high school. His interest in clowning was known in his hometown of Coffee Creek. So when he was invited to perform in a local parade he pulled together a costume from old clothes and lipstick and found himself hooked on the laughter he drew. After retiring from a lifetime of ranch work and homebuilding in 1981, he joined the Shriners, a spinoff of the Freemasons that holds circus performances to raise money for the groups hospitals. Hes since been a mainstay of the Shrine circus. A wall in his house is covered with awards from clowning competitions across the country.CLOWN: At 95, he keeps the smiles coming for fansContinued From Page 1D

LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 3D By JOSH FUNKAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. — Ham will be the centerpiece of many Easter dinners this weekend, but the cost of that traditional main dish may make it harder for fami lies to live high on the hog. Ham prices have been higher than usual for the past two years because the cost of pig feed has gone up, and some major pork producers are spending mil lions to convert barns as they phase out cramped cages used to confine preg nant sows. Ham has been selling wholesale for 75 to 80 cents per pound this spring, which is in line with last year’s prices but well above the 55 cents per pound average for the previous five years. A recent check at one Omaha-area supermarket found boneless Hormel hams selling for about $2.20 per pound, with bone-in hams slightly cheaper. With sales offered this week to attract Easter shoppers, it was possible to get a bone-in ham for as little as $1.28 per pound. Paula Vejvoda of Omaha said she’s had her Easter ham in the freezer since Christmas, when she bought it on sale so she could eco nomically feed her two daughters, two exchange students and husband. “You really have to watch the ads and see who has the best price,” Vejvoda said. That’s good advice for families, but hard to do when you’re trying to pro vide ham for hundreds of people at a food pantry. Joyce Lonergan, food pan try director at St. Anthony’s Shrine in downtown Boston, said she tries to arrange to have a special meal at each holiday to help boost people’s spirits, but the pros pect seemed daunting when the pantry began shopping for hams back in January. They were selling for $2.30 per pound, not the 99 cents per pound paid last year. With added donations and some breaks from sup pliers, St. Anthony’s was able to secure ham steaks and chickens for the holiday meal. “We’ve made it work only because people have been so generous,” Lonergan said. Livestock economist Shane Ellis said the price of ham isn’t likely to drop soon because pork produc ers’ costs aren’t decreas ing. Feed, which is mainly corn, is running about $6 a bushel — not far from the record $7.99 per bushel set last June. Pork producers also are switching from gestation crates to more open pens amid public pressure from consumers and animal wel fare advocates who believe the smaller cages are cruel. One major producer, Smithfield Foods, recently said it expects to spend nearly $300 million by 2017 to convert its barns. The switch also requires more labor to manage the sows because they tend to fight. Some of those costs are likely to be passed on to consumers. Americans consume about 51 pounds of pork a year on average, accord ing to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. While ham is a traditional ele ment of many Easter meals, Ellis said prices typically peak in June, near the height of the grilling season when demand is highest. The low point is usually at the end of the calendar year because that’s when large numbers of hogs reach the market. Many organizations, like the Food Bank for the Heartland, don’t even attempt to deliver a special holiday meal to the people they help because their goal is to offer the most nutri tious food at the lowest pos sible price. Donations from business and individuals have been down over the past two years, making it harder to keep up with the need in the 93 counties in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa that the food bank serves, spokesman Brian Barks said. Most food pantries, shel ters and other programs receiving food from the Omaha food bank this Easter will receive staples like pasta, peanut butter or canned chicken. The food bank recently received 4,200 3-pound hams from the USDA, but Barks said those were gone within a couple of weeks. “Meat has almost become a luxury item at the food bank,” he said. Keepers open a ‘love tunnel’between pair LONDON — Zoo offi cials have created a pri vate love nest for Britain’s only pair of giant pandas in hope the fertility-chal lenged animals will mate — and Wednesday may be their last chance for quite a while. Keepers at Edinburgh Zoo have opened a “love tunnel” between the enclo sures of male Yang Guang and female Tian Tian in a bid to encourage mating, and have turned off the “panda cam” that allows people to watch the pan das online. It is hoped the privacy will encourage the ani mals. Giant pandas have dif ficulty breeding, with females fertile for only two or three days a year. Zookeepers brought the pair together Tuesday after tests showed Tian Tian had ovulated. The zoo said that despite “encouraging” signs and some wrestling, they had not mated so far. The 8-year-old animals met twice Wednesday and had come “closer than ever before” to mating, but again failed to do so, a zoo spokeswoman said. The zoo may try one last time Thursday, if the female panda’s hormones showed signs she would still be receptive to mat ing. The animals — whose names mean Sunshine and Sweetie — arrived from China in December. They have been drawing a steady stream of visitors to the zoo, which has had to allocate time slots to accommodate those hop ing to view the pandas. The pair, who are on loan, were also removed from public view in January when they were treated for colic. They are the first pan das to live in Britain in nearly two decades.

ASSOCIATED PRESSA giant female panda named Tian Tian is seen explorin g her enclosure at Edinburgh Zoo in Edinburgh, Scotland.UK zoo’s pandas meet for date, but will they mate? By D. GORDON BLANKINSHIPAssociated PressSEATTLE — Charles Simonyi may still be described as a space tourist even though the Microsoft billionaire has no plans to take a third vacation on the International Space Station and hasn’t hung out in outer space for a few years. He’s still obsessed with space and is heavily involved in the Seattle Museum of Flight’s new space gallery, which is named in the phi lanthropist’s honor. Since 2002, Simonyi has been running his own company called Intentional Software that specializes in creating industry-specific computer software, and he recently he took on a new title: book publisher. The son of a Hungarian physicist, the 63-year-old just made one of his dad’s dreams come true by help ing translate the senior Simonyi’s epic about phys ics into English. “A Cultural History of Physics” by Karoly Simonyi, who died in 2001, is a heavy tome with an intimidating name but inside the non-scientist will find lots of pic tures and stories that offer a whimsical side of physics. Flip through the book, which has had five editions in Hungarian and three in German, and you’ll find a full-page diagram showing how the scientists of the 17th century enjoyed dismissing each other’s theories. A dia gram and an explanation by Sir Isaac Newton of how rainbows are formed are on another page. An illustration of a cat with its hair standing on end may catch your attention toward the end of the book. If you stop to find out why the cat is on the page, you’ll find an explanation of quantum mechanics and radioactive decay. Simonyi says that page is just one of many parts of the book that illustrate his father’s sharp sense of humor. The project was personal for Simonyi but has ele ments of other things he does for work and fun: it was a challenge, it’s about science and it has the poten tial to help people learn. The man who led the Microsoft teams that devel oped Word and Excel also is great at explaining sci entific concepts. From the stories he shares about his father, that’s a quality he likely inherited from the former physics professor, who Simonyi says inspired generations of Hungarian electrical engineers. Charles Simonyi left Hungary at 17, and says his interest in space as a child helped him learn English — two of his first English words were “propellant” and “nozzle.” His knowledge of space trivia led him to win a junior astronaut contest at age 13. The prize was a trip to Moscow to meet one of the first cosmonauts, Pavel Popovich. His next project will be writing a book about his space trips in 2007 and 2009 with Virginia-based Space Adventures, which cost him a total of $60 million. The idea was inspired in part by all the questions he was asked on a website he set up during his space travels called “Charles in Space.” “I love talking about space flight,” said Simonyi, who says the privilege of going to space can be mea sured by the fact that only about 500 people have ever left Earth’s atmosphere. “If you’ve been there, then you kind of have this obligation to tell people about what it’s like and share the experi ence.” Earlier this week, he dropped off a space toilet at the Museum of Flight. Going to the bathroom in space is quite a bit more complicated than sleeping there, and Simonyi is enthu siastic about sharing all the personal, yet technical, details with anyone curious. He even made a video about the mechanics of bodily functions in zero gravity. Sleeping is actually eas ier in space than on earth, Simonyi said. “You can sleep anywhere in any position — vertical, horizontal or at an angle,” he said, adding that he slept in a room where the Russian space suits were kept. “It was out of the way and pretty quiet. I enjoyed it very much.” Thanks to Simonyi, the museum also has one of the Russian Soyuz space cap sules he used to ride back to earth from the space station. Simonyi gave $3 million to the museum to help build the space gallery, and has given the Soyuz capsule, a space suit, space toilet and other artifacts to the muse um on a long-term loan. Eventually the small cone-shaped capsule will sit beside the giant U.S. space shuttle trainer, for which the hangar-sized gallery was built. Simonyi said he never felt claustrophobic on the space station or in the Russian ships to or from the station. “I find the spacecraft very comfortable, very cozy,” he said.ASSOCIATED PRESSCharles Simonyi, the only civilian to visit the Internation al Space Station twice, poses for a photo next to the Soyuz TMA-14 descent module that took him to the International Space Station on his second trip into space, at the Seattle’s Muse um of Flight’s new space gallery, which is named after him, in Seattle. The Microsoft billiona ire is still obsessed with space, but has no plans to take a third trip, instead he’s focused on publishing a physics book written by his father and continuing to work with the museum.Space tourist is just one way to describe Simonyi

PAGE 23

DEAR ABBY: My husband served in Vietnam and proudly wears a Vietnam veteran insignia on his jacket or cap every-where he goes. People approach him all the time and thank him for his service, which is wonder-ful. The big question is, how should he respond? He isn’t quite sure what to say back to them -“You’re welcome”? I’m not sure of the right response, either. So I told my husband I’d ask you. What’s the proper thing to say when some-one is kind enough to take a minute and say thanks? -VET’S WIFE IN PHOENIX DEAR VET’S WIFE: A proper response when someone thanks him for his service would be any of those you offered, or a simple, “Thanks for saying that. I appreciate it.” ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have dear friends who live in another country. They also have a vacation home in a very nice part of the U.S. They have often invited us to use their vacation place while they’re away, since it stands empty 11 months of the year. I have hesitated in the past because I know we would use utilities and it would be of some expense to them. They are insistent that they will not let us pay for the use. We would love to spend some time there. Is there anything we could do to show our appreciation without paying them? -APPRECIATIVE, BUT ... DEAR APPRECIATIVE: Yes. After spending time in their vacation home, write a letter thanking them and describing the experience. Consider buying a gift for their vacation home. That way you will have repaid them without “paying” them. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My little sister is almost 12. She has been having a lot of behav-ior problems. I thought it was the stupid videos she watches that made her act like that, but she’s getting worse. One night, her mood was terrible and I noticed she was texting. So while she slept I took her cellphone and started reading the messages. Her texts were about her being a skank, drunk, sexually active, depressed, cutting herself and moving away soon. No one in the family knows or would ever allow this. I feel the right thing to do is to tell our parents, but I don’t want to make the situation worse. Her behavior and attitude stress us out, and her “friends” are the wrong crowd for her. I know it was bad for me to invade her privacy, but something needs to be done. What can I do? -SISTER WHO CARES IN TEXAS DEAR CARING SISTER: Tell your parents what you have learned. Your sister’s behavior problems and angry or depressed mood must have been noticed by them as well as you. Ask them not to reveal that you looked at the messages, but to insist on some answers from her until they get to the bottom of what’s happening. If even half of what your sister is writing and receiving is true, she is headed for serious trouble. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Speak up, or you may limit your chance to achieve equality in an important relationship or venture you want to pursue. Keep your feelings out in the open and ask questions if you are con-fused about the way some-one treats you. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be pulled in dif-ferent directions. Follow the path that offers the most stimulating or unique adven-ture. Sharing ideas can open a window of opportunity to engage in a worthwhile partnership. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t trust anyone when it comes to self-improvement. Live with what you have until you are certain the recommenda-tions are feasible and the ends are truly what you want to achieve. Protect your health and assets. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t get caught up in the changes others make. Focus on things you enjoy doing and the people you want to be with. Take care of your health and avoid unnecessary risks. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Help others physically, but don’t bail anyone out financially. You have to draw the line when it comes to integrity. Keep your wallet in a safe place and don’t allow emotional blackmail to manipulate you into a vul-nerable position. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and visit friends. Take a day trip that will introduce you to unfa-miliar things and inspire you to make positive chang-es. Don’t be fooled by some-one trying to get something from you by using charm or deceptive tactics. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Change will do you good. Love is on the rise, and getting close with the right person will lead to positive lifestyle changes. A work-related opportunity should be considered. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Use your imagination and you will come up with a workable solution that concerns your home, family and love life. Greater oppor-tunity is apparent if you pool your resources and talents together with someone who can contribute equally. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You won’t get all the information you require in order to make a good decision. Ask questions or investigate what others are doing or saying before you make a choice that can alter your life forever.. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Expand your inter-ests and use your know-how to make your home and financial situation work in your best interests. A change will allow you to get involved in something you have wanted to do for a long time. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Avoid anyone who is pushy or manipulative. Protect your emotions and keep life simple. Too much of anything will turn into a fiasco.

6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 By LEANNE ITALIEAssociated PressNEW YORK — Jeanne Thompson began going gray at 23. She colored her hair for years as she worked her way into management at a large Boston-area financial services company, then gave up the dye for good about a year ago. The earth didn’t shake, and the 44-year-old Thompson was promoted to top manage ment the following year. She is among a new type of gray panther, a woman who aspires to do well and get ahead on the job while hap pily maintaining a full head of gray. “Women put pressure on themselves to color,” the Exeter, N.H., woman said. “It’s a bold statement to be gray because it’s saying, ‘You know what? I did let my hair go, but I’m not letting myself go.’ People take me more seriously now. I never apolo gize for the gray hair.” But not everyone finds it so easy. Laws, of course, exist to ward off discrimination in the workplace, yet legions of men and women have no interest in let ting their gray fly. Not now, when the strug gling economy has produced a stampede of hungry young job-seekers. But gray heads have been popping up on runways and red carpets, on mod els and young celebrities for months. There’s Lady Gaga and Kelly Osbourne — via dye — and Hollywood royalty like Helen Mirren, the Oscar-winning British actress. Christine Lagarde, the International Monetary Fund chief, is one of the most pow erful women in the world, and she keeps her hair gray. So does Essie Weingarten, founder and now creative director of the nail polish company Essie Cosmetics. For regular working women, it’s a trickier issue. “I don’t think a woman in the workplace is going to follow that trend,” David Scher, a civil rights attorney in Washington, said with a laugh. “I think women in the workplace are highly pres sured to look young. If I were an older working person, the last thing I would do is go gray.” Yes, he’s a dude, and at 44 he has virtually no salt in his hair, but he wasn’t alone in issuing a warning against workplace gray for women. “While the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 was created to protect employees 40 years of age and older, some men and women may still encounter ageism in the workplace,” said Stephanie Martinez Kluga, a manager for Insperity, a Houston-based company that provides human resources services to small and medium-size busi nesses. “The long-standing percep tion that men with gray hair are experienced and women with gray hair are simply old may still be an issue that affects employees in work places across the U.S.,” she said. Some of today’s new gray panthers also offer strong words of caution about exactly how well those anti-discrimination laws work. Anne Kreamer is gray and proud, but she didn’t unleash the color until she left her day job to become self-employed. She dedicates an entire chap ter of her 2007 book “Going Gray” to workplace issues. “We only fool ourselves about how young we look with our dyed hair,” said the Harvard-educated Kreamer, a former Nickelodeon execu tive who helped launch the satirical magazine Spy before writing the book exploring her journey to silver. When it comes to gray on the job, Kreamer said, con text counts. The color might be easier in academia over high-tech, for instance, and in Minneapolis over Los Angeles. Job description and your rung on the ladder might also be in play: chief financial officer versus a low lier, more creative and therefore more gray-tolerant posi tion like assistant talent agent, for example. Kreamer dubbed the largely unspo ken phenomenon “hair-colorism.” In 1950, 7 per cent of women dyed their hair, she said. Today, it’s closer to 95 percent or more, depending on geo graphic location. In the ‘60s, easy, affordable hair dye in a box hit store shelves, chang ing the follicle landscape for good. “When women were going to work, it was like they could reinvent themselves and say, ‘I’m no house frau anymore.’ Hair dye got kind of linked in there and we never looked back,” said Kreamer, who went prematurely gray and colored for 25 years. “It’s still very complicated.” Sandra Rawline, 52, in Houston knows how compli cated it can be. A trial is scheduled for June in her federal lawsuit accusing her boss at Capital Title of Texas of ordering her to dye her gray hair in 2009, when her office moved to a swankier part of town. The suit accuses him of instruct ing her to wear “younger, fan cier suits” and lots of jewelry, according to the Houston Chronicle. By JOAN LOWYAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Flying is getting better. Honest. For airline passengers grappling with fare increas es, canceled routes and a seemingly endless parade of new fees, “better” may not be the first word that comes to mind. But based on more traditional yardsticks — lost bags, delayed flights, lousy service and bumpings from full planes — airlines are doing a better job, say pri vate researchers who have analyzed federal data on air line performance. Airlines are slowly, steadi ly recovering from their meltdown five years ago, when, under the strain of near-record consumer travel demand, their performance tanked. Industry perfor mance for all four measure ments was slightly better in 2011 compared with 2010, according to the report being released Monday. “Airlines are finally catch ing up with what their prom ise is, which is getting you there on time 80 percent of the time with your bags,” said Dean Headley, a busi ness professor at Wichita State University who has co-written the annual report for 22 years. “They realize that people are paying a lot more money, and the system is more com plex than it was, and they have to do a better job,” he said. “To their credit, I think they are doing a better job.” With higher fuel costs, airfares are trending up, although increases vary significantly depending on whether the passenger is fly ing between major airports, or is heading to or from a small or medium-sized air port, Headley said. As air lines cut back service to smaller airports, the cost of air travel in small and medi um cities is increasing, he said. “It really depends on the market you are in,” Headley said, noting that in 2010 he paid $275 to fly round-trip from Wichita, Kan., to Washington, where he released that year’s report. This year, the same trip cost him $360. In judging quality of per formance, low-cost carriers that mainly fly between large hubs tend to fare the best, Headley said. The large air lines that have been around since before airline deregula tion in the early 1980s tend to fall in the middle. Regional airlines, which often fly small er planes that have more dif ficulty avoiding storms, gen erally pull up the rear. Airline performance last year was likely helped by a mild winter in much of the country despite an “October surprise” snowstorm that snarled the Northeast, he said. Hawaiian Airlines did the best job of arriving on time with an average of 92.8 per cent, while JetBlue Airways had the worst on-time perfor mance, 73.3 percent. A flight is considered on time if it arrives within 15 minutes of when it was originally due. Nearly half the 15 airlines improved their on-time arriv al performance in 2011, and seven had an on-time arrival percentage over 80 percent — Hawaiian, Southwest Airlines, AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and Mesa Airlines. The average on-time performance for the industry was 80 percent last year, just a tad better than 2010’s average of 79.8 per cent. Mesa had the highest rate of passengers with tickets who were denied boarding, at 2.27 per 10,000 passen gers. Such “bumpings” are usually due to overbooking. JetBlue had the lowest rate of bumped passengers, .01 per 10,000 passengers. Ten airlines improved their denied boardings rate in 2011. American Eagle, which is owned American’s parent company, AMR Corp. of Fort Worth, Texas, recorded the largest improvement, and Atlantic Southeast Airlines had the largest decline. Jet Blue, with its near zero rate, and Hawaiian, with a rate of 0.11 per 10,000 passengers, were clearly the industry leaders in avoiding bumping incidents. Industry perfor mance was better in 2011 with an average bumping rate of .78 per 10,000 passen gers compared with 1.08 the year before. AirTran had the best bag gage handling rate, 1.63 mis handled bags per 1,000 pas sengers. American Eagle had the worst baggage handling rate, 7.32 mishandled bags per 1,000 passengers. Associated PressLONDON — Troublesome tourists bombard British embas sies with bizarre requests for help — seeking assis-tance booking restaurants, finding directions or mak-ing romantic advances toward locals, Foreign Secretary William Hague said Wednesday. Announcing plans to bolster the response by dip-lomats to emergencies in other countries, Hague dis-closed details of the wild demands made to embas-sies by traveling Britons. A tourist in the United States called diplomats last year after he discov-ered ants in his Florida rental home, while a visi-tor to Spain requested help finding a suitable spot for Christmas lunch. “We are not the people to turn to if you can’t find your false teeth, if your sat nav is broken and you need directions ... if you are looking for a dog-minder while you are on holiday,” Hague said, in a speech at Britain’s Foreign Office. He said a visitor to Greece had requested assistance erecting a chick-en coop, while an anxious Briton urged consular staff in Italy to throw a coin into Rome’s famous Trevi Fountain on his behalf, after forgetting to do so during a holiday. According to tradition, tossing a coin into the waters guarantees a swift return to the Eternal City. “Our commitment to good relations with our neighbors does not, I am afraid, extend to translating ‘I love you’ into Hungarian, as we were asked to do by one love-struck British tourist,” Hague said. He warned that some tourists risked wasting “time and scarce resources with ludicrous requests.” Tourists ask UK for help Airlines’ treatment of passengers slowly improves ASSOCIATED PRESSVictoria Puerto checks her flight information and t ickets near flight status boards at Miami International Airport in Miami.
