By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe County Line Fire, which began with a lightning strike Thursday, nearly tripled in size over the weekend and has now consumed an estimated 14,000 acres. The fire is reported to be about 20 percent contained. As of Sunday morning the County Line Fire was reported to have consumed roughly 5,000 acres. The last few days the fire has been heading east, pushed by westerly winds. That pattern is expected to continue today. Unfortunately the smoke and ash is going to be unavoidable for some time, Hudson said. Its a fire, within the swamp, so until we get a major rain event we can do as much as we can, but ultimately theres still going to be smoke coming from that for sometime. Unfortunately were going to feel the effects of the smoke for some time. The fire is in the Pinhook Swamp area of Baker and Columbia counties, about two miles south SR 2. A few private tracts have been impacted by the fire. There have been no evacuations and no structures are immediately threatened by the blaze. There have been no recreational area or road closures due to the fire.

Homeowner association could be sued in Martin case, say attorneys By MIKE SCHNEIDER and TONY WINTONAssociated PressSANFORD If Trayvon Martins family sues over his death, they might not target George Zimmerman but instead the homeowners association of the neighbor-hood where the shooting happened and Zimmerman lived. Thats because if Zimmermans claim that he shot the unarmed 17-year-old in self-defense is upheld by prosecutors, a judge or a jury, Floridas so-called stand your ground law would protect him from a lawsuit. But his clearance or acquittal wouldnt stop Martins parents from suing The Retreat at Twin Lakes homeowners association and its insurance policies and assets would make it a much more lucrative target than Zimmerman, even if he is eventually convicted of a crime.

Justices refuse to stay execution TALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court has refused to stay serial killer David Gores execu tion. He is scheduled to die by lethal injection on Thursday. The justices on Monday unanimously rejected sev eral arguments by Gores lawyers. That includes their contention a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision dealing with ineffective counsel applies to his case. The state justices ruled that opinion appears to apply only to federal rather than state court proceed ings. One of Gores lawyers, Martin McClain, said the ruling will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and that other fed eral court options also are being considered. 5 baby fennec foxes born at zoo WEST PALM BEACH The Palm Beach Zoo has some new residents. The zoo announced Monday the birth of five fennec fox kits. They were born last month but had been burrowed under ground until last week. Their births bring the total number of fennec foxes at the Palm Beach Zoo to 13. Nine of those foxes, like the most recent additions, were born at the zoo. Victim of crash dies from injuries SPRING HILL The Florida Highway Patrol said a man who was hurt in a crash involving a driv ers rampage almost two months ago has died. Charles Hesser, 72, died last week at Tampa Bay area hospital. Hesser was driving in Spring Hill on February 15 when his vehicle was struck by a minivan driven by Richard Barrett Jr., 38, of New Port Richey. The FHP said Hessers pickup truck flipped six times. Hearing begins on barrel racing TALLAHASSEE An administrative law judge is hearing a dispute over whether Florida law allows betting on quarter horse barrel racing. Judge Cathy Sellers began the hearing Monday. It could take sev eral days. Traditional quarter horse racing interests are challenging a decision by the state Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering to license barrel racing in the small Panhandle town of Gretna last year. The facilitys owners have since used barrel rac ing to qualify for a poker room and potentially slot machines. 10 rescued from overturned boat MIAMI The U.S. Coast Guard said it res cued 10 people after the boat they were in capsized.

A Coast Guard crew found the boat 11 minutes later. Five adults and five children were pulled from the water. Associated Press Mike Wallace, 60 Minutes reporter, dies NEW YORK M ike Wallace is here to see you. The Minutes newsman had such a fearsome reputa tion that it was often said that those were the most dreaded words in the English language, capable of reduc ing an interview subject to a shak ing, sweating mess. Wallace, who won his 21st and final Emmy Award at 89, died Saturday in the New Canaan, Conn., care facility where he had lived the last few years of his life. He was 93. Wallace didnt just interview people. He interrogated them. He cross-examined them. Sometimes he eviscerated them pitilessly. His weap ons were many: thorough research, a cocked eyebrow, a skeptical Come on and a question so direct it took your breath away. He was well aware that his reputa tion arrived at an interview before he did, said Jeff Fager, CBS News chairman and Wallaces long-time producer at Minutes. He loved it, Fager said Sunday. He loved that part of Mike Wallace. He loved being Mike Wallace. He loved the fact that if he showed up for an interview, it made people ner vous. ... He knew, and he knew that everybody else knew, that he was going to get to the truth. And thats what motivated him. Wallace made Minutes com pulsively watchable, televisions first newsmagazine that became appoint ment viewing on Sunday nights. His last interview, in January 2008, was with Roger Clemens on his alleged steroid use.

residents who had been the victims of a crime. Under the heading Neighborhood Watch, the newsletters message rec ommended that residents first call police and then please contact our Captain, George Zimmerman ... so he can be aware and help address the issue with other residents. That seeming endorse ment of Zimmerman expos es the 7-year-old associa tion to possible legal action by Martins parents, hom eowners association attor neys said. Its almost like if you give your son the keys to a brand new Corvette when he turns 16 and he gets in an accident, said Roberto Blanch, a South Florida attorney who specializes in homeowners associa tions. You may be seen as enabling the occurrence or the loss. Zimmerman has admitted to fatally shooting Martin during a confrontation Feb. 26 but has said it was in selfdefense. Zimmerman spot ted Martin from his truck as the teen was returning to the house of his fathers fiance from a convenience store. It was dusk on a rainy evening. This guy looks like he is up to no good, Zimmerman told a police dispatcher before the confrontation. When Zimmerman got out of his truck and started following him, the dispatcher told him, OK. We dont need you to do that. Moments later, residents of The Retreat at Twin Lakes heard screaming and at least one gunshot. Police officers arriving at the gated community found Martin shot dead in the chest. By designating Zimmerman the neighbor hood watch captain in the newsletter, the homeown ers association is stuck if its sued, said Justin Clark, an attorney based in Longwood, Fla., whose practice includes real estate law. So, if youre going to send out a newsletter say ing, Hey, he is the captain. Whatever he says goes, You have now basically rented a free police officer for your neighborhood, Clark said. He certainly took on that role with the homeowners association, and it seems to me that they recognized that. One of the Martin fami lys attorneys, Daryl Parks, indicated last month that a civil lawsuit against the homeowners association was likely. They mention George Zimmerman by name as the captain for the neighborhood watch, and they tell you if you see something suspi cious, call the Sanford Police Department and call George Zimmerman, Parks told board members of the National Association of Black Journalists last month. So the close nature of the working relationship is as clear as it can be. Don OBrien, an officer with the Retreat at Twin Lakes homeowners associa tion, said, No, and closed the door on a reporter who contacted him at his home. No one answered the door at the homes of two other association officers, Jenna Lauer and Cynthia Wibker. All live inside the complex of more than 250 town homes. A woman who answered the telephone at the associ ations management com pany, Leland Management, said no one would com ment. She declined to give her name. Zimmerman told Sanford police detectives he had lost track of Martin and was returning to his vehi cle when Martin attacked him from behind. Then-Police Chief Bill Lee said detectives were unable to arrest Zimmerman because of Floridas selfdefense law, which gives wide leeway to use deadly force and eliminates a per sons duty to retreat in the face of danger. The decision not to arrest Zimmerman has provoked an international outcry, prompting Lee to step down temporarily and the state attorney who nor mally handles cases out of Sanford to recuse himself. Gov. Rick Scott appointed a special prosecutor to inves tigate and decide whether to file charges. Zimmerman had devel oped a reputation for monitoring the neighbor hood. He was well known to local police dispatchers, having made 46 calls to them since 2004, accord ing to department records. Some of those records list the caller familiarly as just George. The neighbor hood had experienced a recent rash of burglar ies, and some neighbors welcomed Zimmermans efforts. A PowerPoint presenta tion put out by the Sanford Police Department for neighborhood watch groups, however, makes it clear that Zimmermans role had limits. The pre sentation warns volun teers not to try to be police themselves but to work with the police. If Zimmerman were to be convicted of a crime, the door would likely be wide open to a lawsuit Florida courts have held that homeowners associa tions can be held liable in wrongful-death cases. A state appellate court in South Florida ruled seven years ago that a Miami homeowners asso ciation was partially at fault in the death of a visi tor whose estranged hus band entered the gated community and killed her. Who would pay in the event of such a lawsuit would probably be deter mined by the type of insurance coverage the association has, Clark said. Some policies may be wide enough to cover Zimmermans actions. If there is no policy or the policy in place is very narrow in its coverage, homeowners likely would have to pay out of their own pockets through higher monthly assess ment fees because most associations dont have very deep reserves, he said. He noted that poli cies typically cover about $1 million. I almost guarantee you there are going to be checks written, Clark said. Errin Haines in Atlanta contributed to this report.

Were working on the east side of it right now. Were feeling pretty good about it, but at the same time were bringing in the appropriate number of resources to address it. It is a large fire. Predicted weather conditions for Tuesday are favorable for the firefight ing effort. The smoke is our number one con cern right now, Hudson said. U.S. Forest Service and Florida Forest Service personnel are working to douse the blaze, along with some pri vate landowners. Firefighting resourc es include: Approximately 120 people, 15 tractor/plows, four helicopters and other aerial resources. Weve used very little retardant, Hudson said, noting they are mainly dropping water on the fire. When and if we drop retardant we just drop water on top of the retardant once its estab lished. Were dropping water along the eastern of edge of the fire to keep it in check, Hudson added. That gives us more time to work on the firebreak on the east side of the fire. The west side is looking real good. Were kind of focusing on the eastern side of the fire right now. The U.S. Forest Service has also been working with the Greater Okefenokee Association of Landowners and other private landowners as containment efforts continue. The firefighting force is expected to increase significantly within the next few days as additional resources pour into the area. Today (Monday) is a transition day and weve got more folks coming in, Hudson said, noting an incident management team will be overseeing firefighting operations. The smoke is going to be around for some time. Until we get a major rain event there are going to be periods of smoke. The fire, originally dubbed the Columbia Line Fire, was renamed the County Line Fire on Sunday. Townsend was placed on leave. We were advised that he was under investigation by FDLE, she said, adding FDLE officials have not given a time frame for comple tion of the investigation. All we know is that its an ongoing inves tigation. Miller said she was informed about the FDLE investigation by White Springs Police Chief Ken Brookins. FDLE would not immediately confirm Townsend is the subject of an investigation. The interim town manager is Shirley Heath, who is also the town clerk. Its a sad situation for Mr. Townsend and the town, Miller said. Prudence dictated that we take this action and place him on administrative leave with pay. TOWNSEND Continued From 1A Martin case wont go to a grand jury By MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated Press ORLANDO A grand jury will not look into the Trayvon Martin case, a special prosecutor said Monday, leaving the decision of whether to charge the teens shooter in her hands alone and eliminating the possibility of a first-degree murder charge. That prosecutor, Angela Corey, said her deci sion had no bearing on whether she would file charges against George Zimmerman, the neigh borhood watch volunteer who has said he shot the unarmed black teen in self-defense. Corey could still decide to charge him with a serious felony such as manslaughter, which can carry a lengthy prison sentence if he is convicted. A grand jury had been set to meet Tuesday in Sanford, about 20 miles northeast of Orlando. Corey has long had a reputation for not using grand juries if it wasnt necessary. In Florida, only first-degree murder cases require the use of grand juries. cern about the groups intentions in the absence of any solid objectives. Our objective will be a target, Johnson said. Once we identify that objective then we will create our strategy to take over the objectives. Representatives from cities and coun ties all over North Central Florida were in attendance. Many of them shared their ideas on potential modes of action that the group could take. Helen Miller, mayor of White Springs, pulled a 3-gallon aluminum bucket onto the desk in front of her to illustrate the effect of developing creative approaches to communicate with the public. On average, people use about 100 gallons of water a day. Each gallon of water weighs 8.33 pounds. So for one person, 833 pounds of water. Thats a lot of water, Miller said, referring to data from St. Johns Water Management District. Miller suggested teaching the value of water to individuals by having them carry a small portion for some distance. She based this idea on a study from the University of Florida in which high school students were asked to carry a gallon of water a mile as a way to com municate the value of water. To change our behavior, we have to change the way we think, Miller said. If we struggle with something physical like this, I think it will lead to a change in behavior which will lead to changes in attitudes and values. Other representatives spoke about issues such as desalinization plants, replenishing the Floridan aquifer and preventing the transportation of water from this area to other regions. Chair of the organization, Columbia County Commissioner Ron Williams, encouraged the group to stay focused. Its obvious that collectively we want the same identical goal, but how we get there, we have various ideas, Williams said.
W ord seems to have gone out in liberal circles that Obamacare is in trouble with the Supreme Court. A systematic and unprecedented assault is undermining the integrity of the system in an attempt to defend this highly unpopular law. President Obama claimed Tuesday that the court has not overturned a congressional economic regulation in more than 80 years, saying, a law like that has not been over-turned at least since Lochner, right? Well, wrong. The 1905 case of Lochner v. New York dealt with a state statute and had nothing to do with the powers of Congress. The law professor should check his notes. Another problem with trying to invoke precedent is that Obamacare defenders cant keep their story straight on whether the constitutional authority for the health care takeover was found in the governments taxing power, regulation of interstate com-merce, a necessary and proper power, or something else. White House attorneys still cant seem to agree, and the grounds kept shifting even during oral arguments before the nations highest court. Its never a good sign when the solicitor general elicits laugh-ter in the courtroom. University of Houston law professor David R. Dow sug-gested impeaching justices who vote against Obamacare. This is not a new idea Mr. Dow is cribbing from the segregationists who erected billboards calling for the impeachment of Chief Justice Earl Warren after the court began striking down the Jim Crow laws. Only one justice has ever been impeached, Samuel Chase in 1805, and he was acquitted. Since then, it has been a tradition that impeachment would be used only against judges who com-mitted malfeasance, not for having their own views of the Constitution. Even Franklin D. Roosevelt simply wanted to pack the court with hand-picked justices who would support his policies, not be rid of the meddlesome clerks who have the nerve to interpret the law independent of the execu-tive. Mr. Obama questioned whether the Supreme Court even had a right to threaten a law passed by a democrati-cally elected Congress. Judge Jerry Smith of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals asked the Justice Department to clarify whether this statement reflected official White House policy. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. responded that the courts could conduct judi-cial review but were required to show particular deference to Congress in the exercise of its enumerated powers. This cannot include Obamacare because no one knows what power Congress claimed to be exercising. Mr. Obama set the precedent of attacking the justices during his 2010 State of the Union address, saying their decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests to spend without limit in our elections. Mr. Obama treats the unelected justices as just another impediment to his power-to be picked, frozen, personal-ized and polarized. Perhaps he should appoint a judicial czar to look into the matter. Obamaswar on the courts ONE OPINION N ational Journals Ron Brownstein provided an eye-opening reminder in a recent column about the impact of chang-ing ethnic demographics on Americas political landscape. The flashing red light of Brownsteins message is point-ed to the Republican Party. America is changing inexorably into a country that is less and less white and the Republican Party remains today a party whose base is over-whelmingly white. Brownstein estimates that President Barack Obama could be re-elected this year with as little as 39 percent of the white vote. He notes that in 2008, when Obama won with just 43 percent of the white vote, it was the first time ever that a presi-dential candidate was victorious with double digit losses of white voters. To offer additional perspective on the same point, consider that in 2008, 74 percent of the American electorate was white. When Ronald Reagan was elect-ed president in 1980, 88 percent of the electorate was white. Projections show that this trend will continue, with the white percentage of the elector-ate continuing to shrink. With black and Hispanic voters seemingly ensconced with the Democrats -Obama won 95 percent of the black vote and 67 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2008 -is there anything Republicans can do to turn around what seems to be an inevitable train wreck for their party? Many Republican strategists have given up hope regarding prospects with black voters and conclude that if there are pos-sible inroads its with Hispanics. But even if this is accurate, its long run thinking. Blacks still significantly outstrip Hispanics in number of voters turning out at the polls. A new report from the Pew Hispanic Center adds to the sobering news for Republicans. According to this survey, 30 percent of Hispanics self identi-fy as liberal compared to 21 per-cent of the general population. When asked to express preference for bigger government providing more services versus smaller government providing fewer services, 75 percent of Hispanics prefer bigger govern-ment compared to 41 percent of the general population. What can be done?I believe this is one more powerful reason why Republicans cannot let the social agenda fall by the way-side and pretend we can talk about dismantling big gov-ernment and reinventing our entitlement programs while the American family collapses. When Reagan became president, 18 percent of our babies were born out of wedlock com-pared to 41 percent today. Seventy two percent of black babies and 53 percent of Hispanic babies are now born out of wedlock. Yet both blacks and Hispanics attend church more frequently than the national average. Efforts must be expended to reach black and Hispanic clergy and community leaders to raise awareness how big government and moral relativism six days a week overwhelms the mes-sage heard from the pulpit on Sunday. Single parent homes are a ticket to poverty. This is a mes-sage that can save our country. Republicans challenge with blacks and Hispanics R epublican image-makers are gearing up for a formidable task this fall: How to make Mitt Romney seem like a Regular Guy. The idea is that Americans are more likely to vote for some-body they can relate to -some-body theyd like to have a beer with, in political parlance. But that kind of Regular Guyism wont work with Romney. As a Mormon, he doesnt drink, and his response to voters would be: But I do have a lot of friends who own breweries. (At the Daytona speedway, he said he wasnt a racing fan but that some of the team owners were his good friends.) During the primaries, he often appears in jeans -design-er jeans, to be sure -and shirt-sleeves. It really doesnt work. Theres no way he can appear to be fresh from wrangling dogies, whatever a dogie is, up on the Wind River Canyon when his trade is wrangling $60 billion in investment capital from an aerie high up in Bostons John Hancock Center. Romney is not a natural politician. When stressed, he gets awkward. He told an audience that what he liked about his native Michigan was that the trees are just the right height. That set an instantly puzzled audience to wondering: What is the right height for a tree? Is my state suffering from too much shade because the trees are too tall? If hes elected president, will he rectify the tree heights in all 50 states, or only the ones -the states, not the trees -that voted for him? He introduced a new term into the campaign lexicon -severely conservative -which, admittedly, is better than the usual expression political Neanderthal. Romney was singed in the last presidential election by hav-ing hired a landscape service that, as it happened, employed illegals. This is one of those gotchas that are great fun for political opponents, but the general pub-lic doesnt really care. What the average Joe with a lawn problem wants to know is: How much did they charge? And are they any good? Romneys reply when the charge came up again this time around was, Im running for office, for Petes sake. We cant have illegals. Romney should embrace his inner stiffness. And forget the teleprompter. This fall, in President Barack Obama, he will be facing the Heifetz of the teleprompter. And he should forget about seeking common ground with the common man. Its invariably a disaster, as when Romney, who had earned $42.7 million over the last two years, told a group of the jobless in Florida that he, too, was unemployed. The fact is that American voters probably care less about the appearance of his great wealth than he does. Any voter worth north of $190 million would have $10 mil-lion-plus cribs on both coasts, too. The worst thing he could do is act on the advice of his clos-est advisers, including his wife, who believe that if we saw the real Romney we wouldnt even wait until November to vote for him. One adviser, quoted in an upcoming book on the 2012 campaign, says Romney needs to open up the kimono. And his wife, Ann, says, I guess we better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out. Believe me, you dont want voters to have those images in their heads when they go to vote. Much better the stiff, but-toned and zipped Romney.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org M archs jobless rate was 8.2 percent, a good number, the lowest level in three years and continuing a steady monthly decline that began last August, and thats how the White House will spin it. But theres no getting around the fact that the 8.2 percent fig-ure was both a disappointment and an unpleasant surprise. It was that low only because many Americans stopped look-ing for work and thus werent counted in the survey. The hopes were that for the fourth month in a row the economy would add more than 200,000 jobs. Instead the economy added only 120,000 jobs, the least since last October, an indication that the job market recovery has effectively stalled, one hopes only temporarily. The private sector added 121,000 jobs but that was offset by a cut of 1,000 in government payrolls. Still, that 1,000 figure may be an indication that public sector layoffs have started to plateau. Male participation in the workforce was up 14,000, but female participation was down 177,000, mainly due to layoffs in the retail sector, where the workforce is heavily female, and an 8,000 decline in hiring by temporary help firms. For what consolation its worth to the White House, other economic indicators -consumer spending, investing in plant and equipment, factory orders and output -are strong, outpacing that of the European Union. If the March jobless figures are an aberration, President Barack Obama should be OK on that issue come the fall campaign. But if they reflect a trend, he will be very much on the defensive.

COURTESY Clay Brooker (from left), Lyndie Burris, Rion Paige and Stephanie Renae will perform on the 1st Street Music & Sound Company/Budweiser Party Zone Stage at the amphitheatre during the Suwannee River Jam, set for May 2-5 at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. Nine more artists picked for Suwannee River Jam From staff reports LIVE OAK It took five hours of com petition before a packed house, a run-off between nine top contestants with the judges still unable to pick a winner before the 2012 Suwannee River Jam final audi tion was finally settled April 7. All final April 7 audition winners will perform at the Jam at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak May 2-5. Amidst the winners is an 11-year-old star who brought the house down with her last performance and had the whole crowd on its feet, screaming encouragement and clapping before the Jacksonville performer could finish her performance. Another winner comes to the Jam straight from her experience at the 2012 American Idol contest where she made it all the way to #40 before being cut a few weeks ago. The four winners, Rion Paige, Clay Brooker, Stephanie Renae and Lyndie Burris, will perform on the 1st Street Music & Sound Company/Budweiser Party Zone Stage at the amphitheatre during the Jam, according to 1st Street Music & Sound Company owner Steve Briscoe, who heads up the audition contests and books talent for the 1st Street Music & Sound Company/ Budweiser Party Zone Stage at the Jam. In addition, Briscoe said, the remain ing five winners will also perform at the jam but at various other venues. They are Brittney Lawrence, Crystal Black, Kevin Ski Swenszkowski, Lauren Elise and Maci McDuffie. We will find a place for you all to perform, whether its at the river stage, on the porch stage at the SOS Caf or elsewhere, Briscoe told the contes tants. The contestants spent more than five grueling hours trying to win their spot on the Jam stage, at first singing two songs each before the final nine were called back to sing one more to help the judges make their decision. Still, the judges, all career artists themselves, said they couldnt make a choice. It was then that Briscoe made the decision to let all nine perform during the Jam. Judges and Briscoe said of the 18 con testants vying for the Jam stage spots, all were excellent performers but there were only so many slots available during the Jam. Contestants were chosen from vari ous venues around North Florida over the last three months.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High catcher Stephanie Pilkington (9) looks to make a play to second after tagging Gainesvilles Amanda Donovan (14) out at home while T aylor Douglass (back) covers during a game on March 16. Lady Tigers go 3-1 in KissimmeeBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High wrapped up its visit to Kissimmee with a 3-1 record and fifth-place finish in the Kissimmee Klassic Invitational. Of the teams that finished ahead of us, all were state champions, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. Everyone here was ranked and good enough to beat anyone. They were tough, nail-biting games. The Lady Tigers opened the tournament with a 7-1 win against Park Vista High out of Lake Worth. Taylor Douglass picked up the win after pitching a complete game, striking out four batters and allow-ing three hits. Kayli Kvistad started the tournament out with a boom and never slowed down. She went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBIs. By the end of the tournament, Kvistad had tied the home-run record and bro-ken the RBI record. She performed very good at a high level, Williams said. Shes an all-around good player. She makes the ESPN-type plays. Shes just an awesome, run-producing machine. Brandy Morgan and Holly Boris also had two hits against Park Vista and Stephanie Pilkington picked up a hit. The Lady Tigers drew two-time defending state champion Gulliver Prep in Columbia shows it can compete with best in state. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comThe face of Columbia High baseball wont look the same without senior pitcher Kellan Bailey, but at least Tiger fans wont have to go far to see Baileys next step. The Tiger ace signed a letter of intent to play college baseball at Florida State College at Jacksonville during a Monday-morning ceremony at the Columbia baseball fields. Hes really worked hard to get to this point in his life, Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. He had a couple more teams inter-ested in him, did a great job with the process and this is the culmination of his work. Bailey settled into the choice within the last month and felt at the end it was an easy decision. Clark told me that FSCJ wanted to see me and I went to throw a pen for them, Bailey said. After they saw me, they offered me right then. I had a couple more offers but they told me to make the visits and then decide. The more visits I went on, the more they felt like home. For FSCJ pitching coach Del Mathews, it was also an easy decision. We needed left-handed pitching and we really liked what we saw, Mathews said. For us, he can come in and be a front-line start-er. Mathews said it shouldnt take long for Bailey to work his way into the fold at FSCJ. Hes got that edge, he said. Left-handed pitching is very hard to find and hes pretty advanced for a high school kid. Hes a guy that were going to put on our front line and hell prob-ably throw about 90 to 100 innings as a freshman. Bailey seems to have always been advanced for his age. Hes been playing up in age since he was 12 and moved into the No. 2 role for the Tigers during his sophomore year. He only played about five JV games before we brought him up, Clark said. As a sophomore he was our No. 2 and pitched the game of his life against Buchholz to win us a dis-trict championship. Bailey also remembers that game as his finest moment as a Tiger. I was the youngest guy on the team and I got a chance to win us a district, Bailey said. That was the biggest moment of high school, but Im hoping that bigger moments are yet to come. As a senior, Bailey hasnt given up an earned run this year. Hes 6-0 on the sea-son and 4-0 in district play. When hes on the mound, the Tigers are in contention to win any game. The big thing is were always going to have bad days at the plate, Bailey said. But if I can keep it close and we can score one run, I feel like I can win it. Bailey usually isnt one for words according to Clark, but he keeps a quiet confidence that the team rallies around. Not only does he have the ability, but his attitude isnt that of someone who is overly confident, Clark said. Hell do anything for the team. He teaches the younger guys. He gets them up when theyre too down and back down when were too up. Hes been at the varsity level for so long that he knows what it takes to help others succeed. With over 56 strikeouts in 31 innings entering spring break, Bailey has been the Tigers horse. Its that kind of performance that has led Bailey this far. Hes been our No. 1 for two years, Clark said. Whenever we need to right the ship, he gets big wins. His best performance to me was beating Atlantic Coast for us to earn the No. 1 seed in the district tour-nament. FSCJ is getting a great deal. Theyre going to get a lot on their return. Mathews doesnt expect anything less. We expect very, very good things, he said. We expect him to move onto a four-year university. Hes very good in the classroom and thats a priority for us. Hes already headed in the right direction. Mathews character was a big selling factor for Bailey as well. My relationship with him pretty much made the decision for me, Bailey said. I knew I wasnt going JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterCoaches, family and friends gather around Columbia High s Kellan Bailey as he signs with Florida State College at Jacksonville at the baseball field on Monday.

I think Im going to be real comfortable there, Bailey said Out of all the colleges, they felt the most like home to me. Ive had a good relationship wi th them off the bat. BAILEY: Looks to lead Tigers to state Continued From Page 1Bto get much better. And Bailey expects Mathews to get a lot in return. Ill bring in a good lefthanded arm, kind of like what I brought to CHS this year, Bailey said. Ive always played up in com-petition but Im starting to catch up to playing with my age. Ive played against a lot of different-caliber players. My parents have put me in every situation to succeed. Bailey described what FSCJ would receive from his pitching style as well. Honestly, I locate well, he said. I hide the ball and dont walk a lot of guys. I like to get ahead and I throw a lot of strikes. I just try to hit my locations. And theres one location that Bailey is ready to hit. I want to make it passed the second round of the playoffs, he said. Honestly, I think we can win the district and I think state is a possibility. This is the first year since Ive been on varsity that we have had three No. 1 pitch-ers. Weve got lots of depth and everyone can do a job. Weve just got to swing and make the plays and well have a chance. Bailey knows that its all part of a team effort and that also helped him get to where hes at today. For him, it all starts at home and in practice. My parents (Greg and Lisa) and brother and sis-ter (Logan and Brennan) have all been there for me, Bailey said. All the guys Ive played with and all the varsity players have helped. Coach Clark has been there for me since I was a freshman and pretty much helped get me to FSCJ. Joey (Edge) has helped off the field work-ing on my pitching in prac-tice. Heath (Phillips) has helped tremendously with my mechanics. He put me back on track. All three have really helped a lot. CHS: Lady Tigers 7th in state poll Continued From Page 1Bthe second game. The bats were cold, however, and Columbia fell 3-0. Douglass pitched the first two innings and gave up two earned runs while another crossed home plate on an error. Erin Anderson came in to relieve Douglass in the third and threw five-score-less innings. I told the girls that I was proud of the way they held on, Williams said. It wasnt our best game so I was excited to stay on the field. It showed that we can play with any team. After the attention-getter against Gulliver Prep, Columbia bounced back to beat Cooper City High, 17-6. The Lady Tigers fell down 5-0 in the first before Ashley Shoup came in to pitch the rest of the game in the come-from-behind win. Kvistad hit two home runs in the game and again drove in four runs. Payton Sund was 3-for-3 with three RBIs and Boris also went 3-for-3. Pilkington had a triple and a double in a 2-for-4 night at the plate and Hollianne Dohrn picked up two hits. Michaela Burton had one hit and scored two runs. In Columbias final game the Lady Tigers pulled out a 3-2 win against Sickles High. In the game, Williams said he found his new leadoff batter. Caliegh McCauley batted leadoff and scored two of the Lady Tigers 3 runs. She just did a great job for us including the game-winning run, Williams said. Shoup picked up the win after relieving Douglass following the third inning. Shoup gave up one hit and struck out one batter in four innings. Douglass had an RBIdouble to score McCauley for the games winning run. The Lady Tigers improved to 18-4 for the season and are ranked sev-enth in the states 6A poll. Columbia travels to Madison County High at 7 p.m. tonight.
DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 19 years, but I cannot stay faithful to my wife. Ive had a few affairs, visit massage parlors on a regular basis and want to walk away from our marriage. We have kids who will be affected, and it will hurt us financially, but I dont feel right staying in a mar-riage I cant be faithful to. I havent told my wife about this, but I believe she knows because we havent been intimate in months. We had discussed divorce several times in the past, but that was before the kids. Please give me some advice. -LIVING A LIE IN THE MID-ATLANTIC DEAR LIVING A LIE: Feeling and behaving as you do, it would have been better for you to have divorced before you had children. However, now that you do have kids, its time that you level with your wife. She may prefer to remain married to you until your children are out of the house. Or she may feel that her chances of finding someone else are better if you separate now. In any case, she deserves to know the truth. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am trying to decide who to have as best man at my wedding. I asked my best friend before I got engaged. After the engagement, I received a lot of pressure -and unwanted stress -from my mom to have my brother as best man. After arguing with her for a month straight, I finally gave in and asked my brother. We have never been close. We see each other only during the holi-days and have had a forced relationship by Mom since we were teens. If I tell my brother he isnt the one anymore, Im afraid it will be the final dagger in any type of rela-tionship with him and his family. I need your advice. -GROOM-TO-BE IN MINNESOTA DEAR GROOM-TO-BE: Youre right that having asked your brother to be your best man, you should not rescind the invitation. However, I have good news. Your best friend can still be your best man. According to Emily Post, there can be two best men. She says: Though not so common, two chief attendants may be the right solution when you dont want to choose between siblings or close friends. The atten-dants can share the duties and the fun! So there you are. Problem solved. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im dating a man, Jason, who is a DJ. Lately work has been slow for him, but because he was so popular when he was younger, he finds it hard to accept that he will have to get a 9-to-5 job. Jason has expressed in the past that he doesnt want to call a 30-year-old his boss and would like to go to school. We hope to get married one day, but I am torn because I dont want to support the household on a wing and a prayer. How can I explain this without it turning into an argument? -ON THE RECORD IN CONNECTICUT DEAR ON THE RECORD: Consider this. The longer Jason waits to look for a 9-to-5 job, the younger his bosses will be. Marriage is a partner-ship. You shouldnt have to support the household on a wing and a prayer because Jason is dragging his feet about returning to school or becoming self-supporting. Explain it to him by saying that if he doesnt become more proactive, you will have to consider finding someone who is more ambitious. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Turn your talents into a moneymaking commod-ity. A couple of alterations to the way you present what you have to offer is all it will take. Love and romance are in the stars, and emotional matters can be successfully addressed. +++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Dont promise what you cannot deliver, especially where money is involved. You are best to underestimate what you have or can offer. Uncover the facts and determine whats required for you to reach your goals before helping someone else excel. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont get angry, be constructive and take care of your responsibilities. Love is in the spotlight, and uncertainty will push you into a make-or-break scenario that must be addressed openly. A couple of subtle changes will help. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont worry about what everyone else is doing. Concentrate on what you have to accom-plish and keep moving. A change in philosophy will be dependent on the people you encounter and the way you are treated by your peers. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will excel by sticking to your budget and keep-ing things moderate. Dont be afraid to implement new ideas or to step into the spotlight and promote what you have to offer. You will attract both personal and professional attention. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a wait-and-see approach. You need to play it safe if you dont want to end up being blamed or crit-icized. Dont make changes at home that may upset loved ones. Its important to feel out a situation before you proceed. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Explore new avenues. Learn whatever you can that will help you secure your earning power. A trip, lecture or research will be eye-opening regarding a project you want to pursue. A move will lead to better opportunities. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Experience will help you make the right choice now. Dont bring emotions into a work-related matter; however, showing off your fun side will help you form better work relationships as well as gain respect and confidence. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Caution must be taken while traveling and communicating. An unfor-tunate slip of the tongue can lead to a misunder-standing that can cost you emotionally or financially. Make alterations at home that better suit your needs and comfort. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Concentrate on helping others and finding solutions to problems you face personally. Dont try to buy your way in or out of any situation. Its best to know what and whom you are dealing with before making a commitment. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look at your personal situation and home life, and know what you want to achieve. Love is in the stars, but you must play by the rules and avoid a situa-tion that has the potential to hurt someone. Honesty is the best policy. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Problems will surface with people who matter to you. Clear up any confu-sion by sticking to the truth. A change is likely to occur, but the end result will be good for you if you maintain your integrity. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

You may also view files at one of the District's service centers, but you should call service center staff in ad-vance to make sure that the files are at a specific service center. Service center contact information is availa-ble online at floridaswater.com/con-tactus/offices.html. Additionally, most permit application file docu-ments can be viewed online at flori-daswater.com/permitting/index.html. Toobtain information on how to find and view permit application file documents, visit floridaswater.com/permitting/index.html and select the topic of choice from the "Find permits and applica-tion" heading, and then follow the di-rections provided under "How to find a Technical Staff Report (TSR) or other application file documents." Decisions on Standard General per-mit applications will be made at the Districts service center where the application is processed, unless the application is upgraded to an Indi-vidual permit application as ex-plained below. Asubstantial objec-tion to a Standard General permit ap-plication must be made in writing and filed with (received by) the Di-rector, Bureau of Regulatory Sup-port, P.O. Box 1429, Palatka, FL32178-1429, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org,within 14 days of notification of the application.

A"substantial objec-tion" means a written statement di-rected to the District that identifies the objector, concerns hydrologic or environmental impacts of the pro-posed consumptive use, and relates to applicable rule criteria. Atimely substantial objection will cause the Standard General consumptive use permit application to be considered an application for an Individual con-sumptive use permit. If the District receives a timely substantial objec-tion from you, then you will receive written notice of the Districts in-tended decision on the permit appli-cation.Decisions on Individual consumptive use permit applications will be made by the Districts Governing Board.

For Individual permit applications, you are advised to notify the District within 14 days of notification of the application(s) if you have questions, objections, comments, or informa-tion regarding the proposed con-sumptive use. If you make a written request to the District for additional information regarding a specific per-mit application, you will be provided an opportunity to obtain the available information. Please note that filing a written objection does not entitle you to a Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, administrative hearing.

LINCOLN, Neb. Tom Winter finished a lecture on passive and past-tense Latin verbs, pulled his skateboard from the desk and rolled into a cool spring afternoon. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln classics and religious studies pro fessor became an Internet sensation last week when a photo of him skateboarding across campus became the top item on the social news website Reddit.com. The photo inspired dozens of memes, which are photos with humorous text super imposed. Nine pages of memes and a site I never knew about before yesterday, Winter told the Lincoln Journal Star on Thursday. Its a pretty good photo. By Thursday afternoon, the photo had gotten more than 756,000 views on Imgur.com, the Internet image hosting site on which it originally appeared, and 1,300 comments on Reddit. com. Users of Imgur.com wrote mock captions for the image, which features a skateboarding Winter, arms out and holding a briefcase. The top-rated caption: They see me rollin, Im gradin. On Reddit.com, users created memes using the photo of Winter with captions such as, Write a two-page paper on shred ding the gnar, and, Has a PhD in righteousness. Winter said he heard about the photo from stu dents Thursday and thinks he knows who took it. He teaches Latin, Greek and English classes, includ ing Classical Mythology, Ancient Warfare and the Ancient Novel. His favor ite course is Science and Technology in Antiquity. Hes been teaching since 1970 and rides his bike 4.5 miles to work each morn ing. To get around campus easier, he uses his Arbor Pocket Rocket skateboard, which is just short enough to fit in his desk. He said he built the first recumbent bicycle to appear in Lincoln back in 1975. A champion roller skat er, Winter said he began skateboarding 15 years ago because its faster, and its easier on his body. Im 19, but my joints are all of 68 years old, he said. Sometimes, walking is simply unpleasant. After watching Winter take off on his skateboard Thursday, UNL English professor Joe Goecke said its wonderful to see his colleague roll across cam pus. We used to smoke togeth er, but we dont anymore, Goecke said. He quit.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor Tom Winter holds his briefcase as he rides his skateboard across campus to his next class in Lincoln, Neb. Skateboarding prof makes Internet wave ASSOCIATED PRESS By KIMBERLY HEFLING Associated Press WASHINGTON Students like Delano Coffy are at the heart of brewing political fights and court battles over whether public dollars should go to school vouchers to help make pri vate schools more afford able. He was failing in his neighborhood pub lic elementary school in Indianapolis until his mother enrolled him in a Roman Catholic school. Heather Coffy has scraped by for years to pay the tuition for Delano, now 16 and in a Catholic high school, and his two younger siblings, who attend the same Catholic elementary school as their brother did. Shes getting help today from a voucher program, passed last year at the urging of GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels, that allows her to use state money for her childrens education. I cant even tell you how easy I can breathe now knowing that for at least for this year my kids can stay at the school, said the single mother, who filed a petition in court in sup port of the law. The state Supreme Court is hearing a challenge to the law, which provides vouchers worth on average more than $4,000 a year to lowand middleincome families. A family of four making about $60,000 a year qualifies. For all the arguments in favor of vouchers, there are opponents who say vouch ers erode public schools by taking away money, violate the separation of church and state by giving public dollars to religious-based private schools, and arent a proven way to improve test scores. Even among support ers, theres dissension over whether vouchers should only be offered to low-income students on a limited basis or made avail able to anyone. Theres also division among black and Hispanic leaders as to whether vouchers help or hurt kids in urban schools. Many opponents also dis like scholarship programs that provide tax benefits to businesses or individuals for contributing to a fund to pay for private school. They say those programs undermine public schools by keeping tax revenues out of state treasuries, an important source of educa tion dollars. Fights about using tax dollars to help make private schools more affordable are popping up around the country. In Louisiana, Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal won a victory Thursday with pas sage of legislation that expands statewide a vouch er program in New Orleans as part of broad changes to the states education sys tem. Virginia lawmakers recently passed a bill backed by Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell allowing a tax credit for contributions to private school scholar ship programs, and Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill expanding a similar program. Creating or expanding voucher or certain scholarship pro grams has been debat ed in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Ohio, New Jersey and elsewhere. School vouchers prompt court fights From staff reports First Federal Bank of Florida proudly donated $2,000 to to Columbia City Elementary School through the Community Rewards Program. The money will be used to buy laptop com puters for all of fourth and fifth grade classes. Our experience with First Federals Community Rewards Program was great. We were able to part ner with them and reach our goal of $2,000 in practically no time and with no effort on our part except swip ing our debit cards, said Lana Boone, Columbia City Elementary School princi pal. We are very apprecia tive of First Federal and their Community Rewards Program. We would not have been able to do this without their help. The Community Rewards Program is a way for First Federal and the community to partner together to sup port local organizations. Every time a First Federal customer enrolled in the program uses their debit card to make a signaturebased transaction, First Federal donates money to a participating organization. First Federal customers just have to swipe, sign and support. All money raised comes from First Federal. Since its inception in 2010, First Federal has given over $31,000 to local agencies through the Community Rewards Program. This is in addi tion to the thousands of dollars and volunteer hours that First Federal and its employees give each year. If you are interested in helping support your community through the Community Rewards Program, stop by your local First Federal branch or call (386) 755-0600.

COURTESY PHOTO By JONATHAN FAHEY AP Energy Writer NEW YORK Ahh, spring. The days get lon ger, flowers bloom, and gasoline gets more expen sive. Its a galling time for drivers, and its more mad dening than usual this year. The average price of gaso line could surpass $4 per gallon nationwide as early as this week. Its already $3.93 per gallon, a record for this time of year. Why the seasonal spike? Its the time of year refiner ies reduce output to repair equipment and start mak ing a cleaner, more expen sive blend of gasoline for summer. Since 2000, pump pric es have risen every year between early February and late May. The annual increase has boosted prices by 27 percent on average, according to the National Association of Convenience Stores. This year, prices have risen 14 percent, or 48 cents per gallon, since Feb. 1. Theres always built-in increase, and its going to be accentuated this year, said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at Oil Price Information Service. Gasoline was expen sive even before the sea sonal run-up. Strong global demand, heightened ten sions with Iran and a smat tering of supply disruptions have kept crude oil prices elevated for months. The oil used to make most of the gasoline in the U.S. has averaged $120 per barrel this year. This years spring surge is more extreme than usual because three refineries that serve the East Coast were shut down last fall and another one may be closed in July. Thats threatening supplies in one of the coun trys most densely popu lated regions, and pushing prices higher everywhere. Demand for gasoline tends to drop off in winter. That makes it the perfect time for refineries to get ready for summer, when the objective is to produce as much fuel as possible. The catch is that the refin ing industrys version of spring cleaning causes sup plies to shrink and prices to rise. To be specific: Refineries need major maintenance once every four years, on average. On a practical level, that means one-fourth of the nations refining capacity is tem porarily shut down in the first quarter of every year. Because the U.S. has half the number of refineries it did in 1980, a delay in getting one or two back up and running has a greater impact than in the past. To comply with the Clean Air Act and limit smog, refiners have to make a special blend of gasoline that doesnt eas ily evaporate in the warm summer air. The fuel is 5 to 15 cents a gallon more expensive to make because of raw material costs. The nationwide fuel supply cant be transformed overnight. Between April 1, when refiners must start making the summer blend, and June 1, when retail ers have to be selling it, supplies become uncertain, and prices at the pump rise. During this period when refiners are doing mainte nance and making summer gasoline, the odds of an unexpected supply disrup tion rise, analysts say. Distributors and gas sta tion owners buy gasoline every day based on a price set on exchanges. Station owners then change their prices based on how much their last shipment cost, how much the next ship ment is likely to cost and what their closest competi tors are charging. Summer gasoline blends improve fuel economy by 1 percent to 2 percent. Spring: A time for flowers, high gas prices
