By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comFinding a job this sum mer could be a easier for 16-year-olds. The Columbia County School Board will vote on lowering the age requirement for aquatic complex lifeguards at a public hearing May 22. The school board approved the hearing Tuesday night. Lowering the age require ment from 17 to 16 years old means lifeguards can potentially work two sum mers, said Michael Millikin, school district superinten dent. Often lifeguards work one summer then leave town after graduation, he said. They go off to college and we lose them. Sixteen-year-old life guards are common in water parks and other cities, said Alex Carswell Jr., assistant superinten dent of schools. Rehiring lifeguards means train ing is not wasted, he said. Lifeguards are still required to be lifeguard, first aid and CPR certified. The district will hire 15 to 20 part-time, seasonal lifeguards, he said. If the lower age is approved the district will accept appli cations from 16-year-olds after May 22, he said. The district is already accept-ing applications from peo-ple 17 years and older. Job seekers can apply on the district s website, www.columbia.k12.fl.us. In other news:The school board also approved a May 22 public hearing on revised district policies on charter schools, By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe County Line Fire has consumed close to 20,000 acres as it continues to devour property and as firefighters continue to set strategic fires to reduce the amount of fuel feeding the flames. Bonnie Strawser, Southern Area Type 2 Incident Management Team public information officer, said a huge portion of the acreage increase was the result of controlled burns. Thats a result of strategically burning some of the fuels in establishing some good containment lines, she said. Weve had a lot of fire activity in the northeastern side of the fire and that northern flank is where most of the activity has been. The fire grew from 14,000 acres on Monday. Incident Management Team officials are expecting a wind shift today and have made plans to work on con-tainment lines on the south-east portion of the fire. Officials said the fire is 20-30 percent contained. We are basically fighting fire with fire, Strawser said, explaining the plan officials have developed to battle the blaze. We are doing strategic burns to establish those containment lines around the fire. We are basically boxing in the fire. We hope to get a line all around the fire. Strawser said as long as the fire stays within the box, officials will be content to let it burn itself out. Well make sure weve identified any resources in there that we need to protect and well make sure those are protected and then well let it burn as long as it stays where it belongs. Pete Kubiak, Southern Area Type 2 Incident Command Team planning operations chief, said plants and vegetation in the area are a challenge because theyre offering more fuels for the fire even though theyre green. This time of the year because of the drought conditions that we have in the area, were getting a lot of fire behavior out of the fuels, he said. The veg-etation out there, the green fuels palmetto, gallberry, and titi plants and things like that are burning quite well. The leafy materials on that vegetation emits a waxy substance and that becomes very volatile and flammable and it adds to the fire behavior and the Vol. 138 No. 55CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4A People .................. 2A Obituaries .............. 5A Advice & Comics ......... 4B Puzzles ................. 2BTODAY IN PEOPLE Simpsons town in OregonCOMING THURSDAYLocal news roundup 81 45 Partly Cloudy WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterWEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75¢ LAKECITYREPORTER.COM Fighting fire with fire BYRON HART/Special to the ReporterFlames from the County Line Fire continue to consume forest land in the Pinhook Swamp area of Baker and Columbia counties.Controlled burns push forest fire to 20,000 acres TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterDrivers use their headlights to navigate Duval Street Tuesday afternoon after wind shifts caused smoke from the County Line fire to once again blanket the area.

Cars traveled through the downtown area with their headlights on as visibility was limited to less than a mile.

Gulf sturgeon have begun their annual migration back into the Suwannee River. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers have reported see-ing the fish jump already this year. People have been injured in accidental col-lisions with the jumping sturgeon. In 2011, six boaters were hurt and 11 encounters with sturgeon were reported. Last season, we had quite a few people hurt, some seriously, said Maj. Roy Brown, regional law enforcement command er for the FWCs North Central Region, based in Lake City. Just one per-son getting hurt is too many. We want people to be aware the Gulf stur geon are returning to the Suwannee, and the risk of injury to boaters does exist.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Community Redevelopment Agency is six months from establishing an official partnership with the North Florida Broadband Authority, according to City Manager Wendell Johnson. The NFBA has asked for an acquisition grant from the CRA for the old Powers build ing in downtown Lake City. The CRA has agreed to help facilitate the NFBAs migration into the building with consideration of a few caveats. The city has recommend ed that the NFBA have an environmental inspection of the property conducted. According to Johnson, the property used to be a gas station and there is a possibility of fuel contami nants in the ground. The city offered NFBA assistance in obtaining an environmental inspection. A discussion of the specif ics of the financial transac tion between the two groups has yet to be formalized. The CRA has expressed interest in offering NFBA an acquisition grant. For renovation of the building, the CRA has proposed a no-interest construction loan that will be required to be paid in full after a period of three years.

The 58-year-old convict is scheduled to receive a lethal injection on Thursday at Florida State Prison in Starke for the 1983 rape-murder of 17-year-old Lynn Elliot in Indian River County. Gore also is serving life terms for killing five other girls or women, who were raped and dismembered. His attorneys asked for a stay and filed an appeal based on a recent Supreme Court ruling that dealt with ineffective legal assistance. The nations highest court ruled last month in an Arizona case that the federal courts must hear a convicts claim of receiving ineffective legal assistance or none at all for appeals alleging the inmates trial lawyers also had been ineffective. Procedural issues cannot be used to block those appeals, the federal justices ruled in the 7-2 opinion. That decision is limited to states including Florida that do not let defendants claim ineffective counsel until after their initial appeals are resolved. Gore contends his death sentence should be lifted because a prior appellate lawyer failed to locate a key witness for an appeal that the Florida Supreme Court ultimately denied in 2007. In that appeal, Gore had alleged his trial lawyers were negligent during the cases penalty phase.Man rents gun, kills self at shooting rangeORLANDO Sheriffs deputies say a man rented a handgun and shot himself to death at an Orlando gun range. The shooting happened Monday afternoon at The Shooting Gallery. Officials say the man, who was around 60, was pronounced dead at Orlando Regional Medical Center. The Orlando Sentinel reports the man was the only patron at the gun range when the shooting occurred. Deputies say the man shot himself in the upper body. No further details were immediately available and the mans name was not released. According to the newspaper, a 24-year-old man committed suicide at the same gun range in August 2010.Teen gets 16 years for fatal shooting of manSARASOTA A southwest Florida teen has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for shooting another man during a street feud. As part of a deal with Sarasota County prosecutors, 19-year-old Marcus Moody pleaded no contest Tuesday to a reduced charge of manslaughter with a firearm. He had been facing a seconddegree murder charge and possible life sentence. Authorities say Moody fatally shot 20-year-old Willie J. Hadley last June during an ongoing feud between two groups. After Hadleys death, authorities say his brother, 18-yearold Olajuwon Butler, shot and killed one of Moodys cousins.NTSB: Plane sat unused for 3 years before crashDELAND Federal investigators say a small plane that crashed into a central Florida supermarket had not been flown for about three years. According to a preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board, the pilot bought the experimental plane in January. Investigators say the plane left Illinois on April 1 for seaplane training in Florida. The pilot had intended to land in Sanford, but detoured to DeLand when the planes transponder malfunctioned. Investigators say the pilot was flying April 2 from DeLand to Daytona Beach to have the transponder replaced. The plane crashed shortly after takeoff. The pilot, a passenger and one customer in the store were seriously injured. Two other customers also were injured. Witnesses told the NTSB that the plane stalled and sputtered before crashing into the nearby supermarket.Domestic call leads cops to suspected meth labPALM HARBOR A domestic violence call led Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies to what believe to be a meth lab. Deputies responding to the 911 call about 3:45 p.m. Monday were met by a strong chemical odor as they entered a Palm Harbor home. Sheriffs spokeswoman Cecelia Barreda says a man threw chemicals at a woman in the house. The man was arrested and the woman was not injured. The Tampa Bay Times reports one deputy was taken to the hospital after being overcome by the smell inside the home. He was later released. Detectives believe there was a meth lab operation at the home. The names of the man and woman were not released. (AP)You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.

One of the best-kept secrets in television history has been revealed, with The Simpsons creator Matt Groening pointing to Springfield, Ore., as the inspiration for the animated hometown of Homer and his dysfunctional family. Groening told Smithsonian magazine, published online Tuesday, that he was inspired by the television show Father Knows Best, which took place in a place called Springfield. Springfield, Ore., is 100 miles south of Groenings hometown of Portland. When I grew up, I realized it was just a fictitious name, Groening told the magazine. I also figured out that Springfield was one of the most common names for a city in the U.S. In anticipation of the success of the show, I thought, This will be cool; everyone will think its their Springfield. And they do, he said. Groening said he has long given fake answers when asked about the Simpsons hometown, leaving open the possibility that his latest one is itself another fake. The show has made a running joke of hiding the true Springfields location. In one episode, daughter Lisa points to Springfield on a map, but the animated camera view is blocked by son Barts head. The series has been on the air for more than 20 years, becoming the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program and a cultural phenomenon with colleges devoting courses to studying it.Gibb too ill to attend Titanic Requiem, first classical workLONDON Bee Gees star Robin Gibb was too ill to attend the London premiere of The Titanic Requiem, his first classical work, his son said Tuesday. Robin Gibb composed the symphonic piece with his son, RobinJohn Gibb, and was scheduled to perform a new song, Dont Cry Alone, during the premier concert at The Royal Albert Hall. But in a message read out to the audience, Robin-John said his 62-year-old father is still in hospital. He sends all his love, he said ahead of the performance. We are all praying for him and hoping he has a speedy recovery. Robin Gibbs publicist Doug Wright said he is in stable condition in the hospital. He did not provide more details. Gibb had intestinal surgery last month, and was hospitalized late last year for stomach and colon problems. He has not disclosed the nature of his illness, but has said a growth on his colon has been removed.Leaked voicemails show rift between Chase, CommunityNEW YORK A second voicemail message from Chevy Chase leaked online Tuesday, depicting a deep rift between the veteran comedian and the creators of his ratings-challenged NBC sitcom Community. The shows creator, Dan Harmon, played voicemails from Chase at a Los Angeles comedy show last year. They have since found their way on to the Internet, including a recording released Tuesday by Celebuzz.com. In the voicemail, Chase calls Community a mediocre sitcom that is not my kind of comedy. It aint funny to me because Im 67 years old and Ive been doing this a long time, Chase says. Though the recordings left on Harmons phone appear to have taken place during the shows second season, they reveal just how badly things have been for Chase and Community.

lic awareness campaign to alert boaters to the risks of jumping sturgeon. We posted signs at each boat ramp along the Suwannee, explaining the risk of impacts with these fish, Brown said. Our officers will be on water patrol during this period and into the summer months in a continued effort to educate boaters about these jumping fish. Whats the best course of action for avoiding a collision? We recommend boaters reduce their speed to reduce the risk of impact and to give people more time to react if they do encounter a jumping sturgeon, Brown said. The FWC also recommends that all boaters wear their life jackets. The Suwannee River appears to support the largest viable population of Gulf sturgeon. Biologists estimate the annual population at 10,000-14,000 fish, averaging approximately 40 pounds each. Adult fish spend eight to nine months each year in the river spawning and three to four of the coolest months in Gulf waters. Biologists are unsure why sturgeon jump. Theories include that the fish jump to communicate or as a dominance display. I have seen these collisions referred to as attacks. However, these fish are in no way attacking when they jump. They are simply doing what they have been doing for millions of years: jumping. They arent targeting the boaters, Brown said. Gulf sturgeon can get quite big, exceeding 8 feet and 200 pounds. They have five rows of rock-hard scutes along their sides, back and belly. When sturgeon and boaters collide, the results can be devastating, Brown said. State and federal laws protect sturgeon, just like bald eagles, panthers and sea turtles. It is illegal to harvest Gulf sturgeon. If anyone is involved in an incident with a jumping sturgeon, please report it to the FWC. With the data received, we can get a better overall view of where the fish are jumping and get the word out to the public, Brown said.By BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday on the constitutionality of term limits for county commissioners in a pair of cases that potentially could affect all 20 of the states charter counties. The only opposition came from Bruce Rogow, a lawyer for Rio Vista resident William Telli, who had challenged Browards 12-year term limit. In the second case, lawyers for Sarasota County and a citizens group both argued in favor of the eight-year year limit there. Rogow cited a 2002 Supreme Court ruling that struck down term limits for county constitutional officers: sheriffs, court clerks, supervisors of elections, tax collectors and property appraisers. That 4-3 decision was based on the Florida Constitutions Eight is Enough amendment, which sets eight-year term limits for legislators, the governor, lieutenant governor and Cabinet members but does not include county officials. County home rule charters do not trump the constitution, Rogow told the justices. He argued it would take another constitutional amendment to add other disqualifications from office such a term limits for county commissioners. Joni A. Coffey, a lawyer for Broward County, contended the opinion on constitutional officers term limits does not apply to county commissioners because their positions are established by a separate constitutional provision. It makes an exception for charter counties to requirements for county governing boards that include having five or seven members serving staggered four-year terms from single-member districts redrawn after every 10-year census.

Kubiak said the fire is also creating its own winds as it continues to consume property. The fire remains in the Pinhook Swamp area of Baker and Columbia counties, near SR 2 and containment numbers continue to increase. We have those areas that were burned (Monday) last night and its still within 24 hours since they burned, so theres probably some snags in there that are still burning and embers around so we cant say its completely contained, Strawser said. Kubiak said there are at least 140 personnel working in various operations to douse the blaze and he expected that number to increase to around 200 within the next few days. While a majority of the people on the incident command team are from the southeast region of the country, Strawser said some are from as far away as Arizona, California, Colorado and Oklahoma. Resources have been pouring in here today (Tuesday) because this is a really important fire because its one of those fires that if we can hold it where it is now well save a lot of money, she said. respiratory emergency calls so far. With the smoke bank down like it is right now, if it stays like this I expect to see more and more calls from residents, he said. With the smoke bank lying at such as low level, Brinkley said its penetrating peoples homes and for people who already have respiratory problems it could become a health issue. It makes it harder to breathe. Its just like when youre in a fire or really close to a fire, he said. The smoke dries out your airway and makes you have a persistent cough. People need to be very aware of that. Humidifiers are one solution to the problem for people who are indoors. For people who are outside, Brinkley suggested wearing a mask that is capable of filtering smoke, ash and other particles from entering their lungs. That helps keep the clean air coming in and out the air passages, he said. The humidifiers are a great idea, but residents need to keep out of areas where the smoke is really bad. If people start experiencing respiratory problems, they shouldnt wait until it gets too bad. They should go ahead and call 911 and let us get them to the hospital where we can stop a problem before it gets too bad. From staff reportsAn inmate who walked away from a local work release center in March with only five months remaining on his sentence, was captured by local and federal authorities in a Lake City home Tuesday afternoon. Daniel L. Retherford, 24, Florida Department of Corrections, Lake City, was charged with escape. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center without bond. Retherford escaped from the work release center about two weeks ago. According to information from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, on March 31, Retherford walked away from the Lake City Work Release Center. Columbia County Sheriffs Office detectives believed Retherford was still in the Columbia County area and were hoping to apprehend him. CCSO Det. John Hatcher learned of a possible location where Retherford could have been residing, 942 SW Sparrow Terrace. Columbia County Sheriffs Office deputies along with Deputy U.S. Marshals of the Fugitive Task Force and K-9 units from the Florida Department of Corrections surrounded the home around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday. Retherford was identified as being in the home but initially refused to surrender to authorities. After approximately 30 minutes, he was taken into custody without incident, reports said. Retherford was serving a sentence for dealing in stolen property and had only five months remaining on his sentence before he was scheduled to be released.Work release fugitive captured in Lake CityJASPER Hamilton County voters cast ballots Tuesday on whether to allow slot machines at parimutuel wagering facilities. Approval in yesterdays referendum, though, may be meaningless. Thats because the Attorney General Pam Bondi says only voters in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, both in South Florida, can authorize slots. Tuesdays referendum was sought for Hamilton Jai Alai & Poker and Hamilton Downs Race Track, which plans to offer barrel racing to qualify for slots. Traditional quarter horse interests, though, are challenging the licensing of barrel racing, a womens rodeo event. Two other north Florida counties have voted to allow slots at an Ebro dog track and Gretna barrel racing facility. Neither, though, has yet challenged Bondis opinion. Associated PressHamilton County votes on slotsFlorida justices hear county term limits cases student progression plans, the curriculum, purchasing and safety belts. The policies were updated to better comply with state statues, Millikin said. The school board approved a $54,355 bid from Naples-based Athletic Resources Inc. to replace the gym floor at Richardson Middle School. The board approved an agreement with the University of Florida for Certified Athletic Trainers for sports teams at Columbia and Fort White high schools. The board also agreed to allow the Columbia County Recreation Department to use four school buses from June to August for summer camp programs. The recreation department will pay $5,500 plus any maintenance required on the buses.
P resident Obama hosted Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff at the White House on Monday. One syndicated news story published before the presi-dential parley asked, What could Obama learn from Brazil President Dilma Rousseff? The optimistic answer is: hopefully not much. This relationship is not in Americas interest. Ms. Rousseff is an exemplar of the anti-American hard left that is uniting in the develop-ing world to check U.S. power. One of the main goals of her mission to Washington is to get Mr. Obamas seal of approval for Brasilias ambition to acquire a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. U.S. support for this scheme would be self-destruc-tive as Brazil would provide a reliable vote against American interests in the world body. Ms. Rousseff, a former communist guerrilla herself, is a strong supporter of anti-U.S. dictator-ships such as the Castros in Cuba and Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. She has backed the Iranian mullahs efforts to acquire nuclear capability while leading a club of nations press-ing for U.S. nuclear disarma-ment. If the planet is divvied up between those who are for us and those who are against us, Ms. Rousseff is on the wrong side. Mr. Obama has nothing to learn from Brazils leader on the economic front, either. Before she came to power last year, the South American giant finally seemed to be crawl-ing into the society of serious nations. Although an old-school liberal himself, Ms. Rousseffs predecessor, former President Lula da Silva, took some big strides to improve Brazils business climate and standing among investors by updating infrastructure, working col-laboratively with international nongovernmental organizations and pushing a moderately pro-growth economic agenda. The perception of progress helped Brazil win the 2016 Olympic games and the 2014 World Cup, a crowning achievement for a soccer-mad people. Ms. Rousseff has taken an abrupt fiscal U-turn, how-ever, by clamping down on markets, instituting miles of new red tape and ramping up government spending. Like in Obamas America, the result has been dramatic economic decline. During the height of the Lula administration, con-fidence in Brazils direction led to predictions of long-term economic growth rates of 5 percent and higher. But under the new statist direction of the governing coalition led by Ms. Rousseffs Workers Party, the economy has tanked, with 2011s gross domestic product only growing by 2.7 percent, the lowest in South America. Brazil is now the worlds sixth-largest economy and a leader of the coalition of second-tier states looking to extract revenge for years of perceived Western first world imperialism. The narrative mirrors Mr. Obamas kneejerk Blame America First world-view. Brasilia also shows how left-wing bureaucracies mobi-lize to stifle dissent through censorship and confiscation of property when faced with public opposition. This weeks confab between Mr. Obama and Ms. Rousseff was more than a photo-op for two left-ists whispering about what the world could be if they had more power. Its about what the world is already becoming. ObamasBrazilianmodel ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW I f nothing else, the killing of Trayvon Martin has many Americans openly talking about race and racism again. That is good, even though some of our talk is harsh. But then, racism is harsh.Many white people simply want the topic to go away. Trust me when I say that most blacks also want it to disappear -but for other reasons. Trayvon Martins killing shows that the time has come for all decent Americans to commit to ear-nestly acknowledging the ugly truth about race and racism and banishing the sophistry of denial. The most powerful acknowledgment of the ugliness of race I have read comes from Sig Gissler, administrator of the Pulitzer prizes, Columbia University journalism professor, and specialist in race and media ethics. He wrote: Race -it is Americas rawest nerve and most enduring dilemma. From birth to death, race is with us, defining, dividing, distorting. I add the following to Gisslers insight: From birth to death, race is one of the most painfully personal of all human experiences. As a black person, I live race. I am acutely aware that my race constitutes what is referred as a master status. That is, in the eyes of whites and other non-blacks, my skin color, my most visible characteristic, is the most important piece of infor-mation about me. This condition is inescapable. The consequences of race can be profoundly hurtful, each encounter robbing you of a piece of dignity, the degree depending on your sense of self-worth. I vividly recall an experience of 34 years ago when as a pro-fessional I became intellectually aware of the degrading effect of my skin color. I was an English professor at Florida Keys Community College in Key West. Wearing new khakis and a crisp button-down shirt on the first night of class, I carried my textbook, a notepad and the class roster as I walked to my classroom. A white student walked toward me and told me I needed to mop up the water under the air conditioner in her classroom. I asked for the room number. It was my room. Not saying anything to her, I found the janitors station and placed a note on the door. When I walked into my classroom, I recognized the student. She sat in the second row. Based on her startled reaction, she knew she had wrongly assumed her teacher was the janitor. As I wrote my name on the blackboard, she walked out. I learned a few days later she had enrolled in another section of the course. Her new teacher, a white man, was one of my spear-fishing buddies. Over time, we had uneasy laughs about the incident. I was certain that if I had been white, the student would not have assumed I was a jani-tor. My colleague agreed. Her mistake was grounded in race. How else could she have over-looked my attire, my textbook and notepad? No scholar has definitively theorized about race, at least not to my satisfaction. Fancy language cannot explain it. And the voguish genetic and anthropological reports of late -argu-ments that humankind is one big family -have not generated useful clarity and better race relations. Race produces racism, and racism naturally enables dis-crimination from the benign to the horrific. Paradoxically, race appears to be so familiar to us as groups and individu-als, we mistakenly assume that we understand it. Therefore, we take it for granted, seeing it as too tiresome a subject to discuss. The truth, I believe, is that race confounds our understand-ing precisely because, besides being ever-present, it is subcon-sciously lived by the victim and by the perpetrator, making it a complex mix of conflicting sen-timents and degrading actions, equally degrading reactions and crass evasions. Race is so familiar that many of us fail to see that just as it harms the perpetrator and the victim alike, it indicts us in the same way. In the United States, race is inevitable, a reality that explains in part why when race comes up, even very smart people begin to either smirk, roll their eyes, sigh, protest or leave the room. Please, not race again. While most of us view ourselves as being decent and hon-orable and ethical, the acknowl-edgment of race shames many of us, reminding us that for all of our laws and claims of believ-ing in equality, we are creatures of racial exclusionism and abu-siveness. Like Sig Gissler, we should have the courage and honesty to acknowledge the ugly truth that race is our rawest nerve. Only then can we begin to find answers. Race is still our rawest nerve LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:Everyone seems to be cry ing for justice for a specific murder Where is the cry for justice for any and all mur ders? The statistics are chilling: In the United States alone, here are the number of murders: in 2006: 17,030; in 2007, 16,929; in 2008: 16,442; in 2009: 15,241 (2010 numbers not available). Please note I have not categorized any of these: it doesnt matter if its blacks killing whites or whites killing blacks or blacks killing blacks or whites killing whites The families of any and all of the murder victims cry out for justice, and rightly so. But to achieve any justice, there must be unity among all people, regardless of race or national ity. If a member of my fam ily were murdered, it really wouldnt make a bit of differ ence to me as to the race/nationality of the one commit ting the crime. I would simply want justice done in the right way in a court of law. We still live in the United States where we are suppos edly governed by laws based on Christian principles inno cent until proven guilty in a court, by jury of our peers. My prayer is that Trayvon rests in peace, along with the 65,642+ people who have died in the past five years. May our quest for justice be tempered with love and forgiveness instead of the obvious tempers, out bursts, and hatred.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com W e are about to embark on one of the more bizarre rituals of American politics -the selection of the presidential candidates run-ning mate. President Barack Obamas choice is settled. It will be the incumbent, Joe Biden, despite the maneuverings of die-hard Hillary Clinton supporters, who still want to see her be president one day, and proposed she swap her job as secretary of State for Bidens as vice president as one way to do it. But even by Washington standards that would have come across as too cynical. The Founding Fathers didnt have any clear idea about the vice president, only that there should be one in case the president died or was incapacitated. For a while the Constitution directed that the vice president would be in effect the second place finisher in the presidential election; in other words, the winners deadliest political enemy would be waiting immediately in the wings. The Founders couldnt even find much for the vice president to do except preside over the Senate and cast tie-breaking votes, at most a couple of hours of work a year. Up until Franklin Roosevelt, the political conven tions chose their parties vice presidential candidate. That process has been win nowed down to the choice being made by the presidential candi date, a tight inner circle of trusted aides, and perhaps his spouse. Even though it has been shown repeatedly that a running mate can hurt a ticket a lot but help only so much, great care is placed in seeking geographical, political and personality balance. Rubio, for example, is from a key swing state and may attract back to the party the Hispanics the GOP has been assiduously driving away. The Founding Fathers might be appalled by the process but for a change, they didnt have a bet ter idea.

By BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Democrats and groups that backed the Florida Constitutions new anti-gerrymandering standards took aim at lawmakers revised Senate redistricting map in filings Tuesday with the state Supreme Court. All say the Republicancontrolled Legislatures do-over still violates the Fair Districts standards that the justices cited in kicking back the original map. They differ, though, on some of details including how minority districts should be drawn. Preserving minority voting rights is one of the Fair Districts standards voters approved in 2010. The Supreme Court, in a 5-2 opinion, faulted the Legislature for failing to do analyses of minority vot ing performance for the Senate map. The justices also ruled lawmakers vio-lated the standards by favoring incumbents and Republicans, drawing non-compact districts and failing to follow geographic and political boundaries when-ever feasible. The high court, though, unanimously upheld the Houses map. The Florida Democratic Party and a coalition of three Fair Districts groups filed separate alterna tive maps. The coalition is made up of the League of Women Voters of Florida, the National Council of La Raza and Florida Common Cause. The Florida State Conference of NAACP Branches also backed Fair Districts but submitted a separate legal argument. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People contends two current black districts dont have enough minority voters in the revised Senate map to ensure theyll stay that way. The coalition and Democrats, though, con tend the Legislatures origi-nal Senate map continued to put more Democratic-leaning blacks in those districts than necessary to elect minority senators. The result, they say, would be fewer blacks in neighboring districts, which diminishes Democrats chances of win-ning those seats. While the Florida NAACP would strong ly protest the pack ing of black voters into super-majority districts, the Florida NAACP also opposes dismantling of black opportunity districts that are not packed, sim ply in the name of making them more compact and thus risking a diminished ability to elect, the confer ences lawyers wrote. The NAACPs focus is on seats currently held by Sens. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, and Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale. It argues the Legislatures revised map cuts the black voting age population of those districts to 40.11 per-cent and 43.2 percent of the electorate that turned out in 2010. More evidence is needed about the extent of racially polarized voting in those regions before a judgment can be made on whether those levels of black voting strength would be sufficient for an African-American to win, the NAACP contends. Legislative data shows Smiths district currently has a 60.7 percent black voting age population. The Legislatures revised map would drop it to 50.1 per-cent, while it would be 51.2 percent on the Democratic plan and 49.1 percent on the coalitions map. Gibsons current district has a 46.9 percent black voting age population. It would drop to 43 percent on the Legislatures map, 42.4 on the Democrats version and to 41.7 percent on the coali-tion plan. The Democratic map would give Democrats, who have a slight edge in statewide voter registra tion, a better chance of cutting into the GOPs cur-rent 28-12 majority than the Legislatures plan. President Barack Obama, who narrowly carried Florida in 2008, would have won in 20 of the Democratic maps districts, said Democratic Party spokes woman Brannon Jordan. Obama would have won just 16 districts under the Legislatures map. The Legislature hasnt yet filed a response, but GOP lawmakers said during a special redistricting ses sion that their map fixes all flaws cited by the Supreme Court. The justices ruled eight districts and the plans district numbering system violated the Fair Districts standards.From staff reportsColumbia County Public Libraries are celebrating National Library Week with special events Saturday and Sunday.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comForget the forest, this smoke came from the south of the county. Fort White Highs baseball team beat Columbia High, 8-2, at Tiger Stadium on Tuesday to earn a split of the season series. It is two teams going in opposite directions, despite Columbia having nailed down its district champion-ship for the regular season. Fort White (13-9) has won four straight games, while the Tigers (10-9) have dropped the same number. We played our best game of the year, Fort White head coach Mike Rizzi said. We finally put all three phases together. They exe-cuted everything we called. I was proud of the way they approached the game. They did a great job. Robby Howell continued his mound dominance for the Indians. He went the distance with six hits, three walks and 10 strike-outs. The two runs, though earned, were set up by a missed pop-up in the infield and a misplayed ball in the outfield. Howell retired the final seven batters to close out the game. Howell got early help when Kevin Dupree blasted one out of the park in the first inning. Bryce Beach walked to lead off the inning and courtesy run-ner Kodey Owens scored ahead of Dupree. Brandon Myers had an infield hit in the inning. The Indians added three runs in the second inning. Kody Moniz got it started with a bad-hop single. Brandon Sharpe sacrificed and Moniz scored on an error on a ground ball by Taylor Morgan. Beach and Brady Wilkinson singled, the second one driving in Morgan. Dupree walked and that was the end of the evening for Columbia starter Jayce Barber. Alan Espenship relieved and got out the inning, only giving up a sacrifice fly to Howell that scored Owens. Fort White tacked on a run in the third inning. Lane Pendergrast led off with a walk and Moniz followed with a single. The runners advanced on a passed ball. With two outs, shortstop Dalton Mauldin fielded a grounder, but slipped and was unable to make the throw to first. A bad-hop single for Dupree, followed by a hard-shot single by Howell led to two more runs for the Indians in the fourth inning. Myers bunted the runners over and Pendergrast and Sharpe added RBI-singles. Dupree had a double in the fifth inning and Nick Butler had a pinch-hit single in the seventh. Barber went 1 13 innings with five hits, five runs (four earned), two walks and one strikeout. Espenship pitched 4 23 innings with six hits, three runs (two earned), one walk, one hit batter and four strikeouts. Caleb Vaughn pitched the seventh inning with one hit and one strikeout. Jason Plyn led off the second inning for the Tigers with a pop-up to the infield. The Indians did not make the catch and Plyn chugged into second base for a dou-ble. He advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a ground ball by Ryan Thomas. Thomas had a double in the fourth inning and moved to third on an infield single by Andrew Nettles. Espenship grounded into a 5-4-3 double play as Thomas scored. Thomas had another single in the game and Kellen Bailey and Espenship had the other hits for Columbia. Fort White did a good job, Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. They were the better team. Weve got a long way to go. Ive been saying it all year, but it has got to click eventually before its too late. Fort White hosts Taylor County High at 7 p.m. Thursday for Senior Night.

TIM KIRBY /Lake City ReporterFort White High pitcher Robby Howell warms up before Tue sdays game against CHS.Indians baseball roughs up Tigers Petrino fired at Arkansas after 4 seasons By KURT VOIGTAssociated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Arkansas fired coach Bobby Petrino on Tuesday, publicly dressing him down for unfairly hiring his mistress and intention-ally misleading his boss about everything from their relationship to her presence at the motorcycle accident that ultimately cost him his job. Athletic director Jeff Long announced his decision at an evening news conference and laid out a stunning laundry list of misdeeds against the man he hired away from the Atlanta Falcons four years ago. The 51-year-old Petrino, a married father of four, had maintained an inappropriate relationship with 25-year-old Jessica Dorrell for a significant amount of time and at one point had given her $20,000, Long said. He would not disclose details of the payment, but said both parties confirmed the gift. Dorrell, a former Razorbacks volleyball player, worked for the Razorbacks Foundation before she was hired by Petrino on March 28. Long said she was one of three finalists out of 159 applicants and got the job after a time frame Long said was shorter than our normal affirmative action hiring process. Petrino never disclosed his conflict of interest in hiring Dorrell or the payment, Long said. And he ignored multiple chances to simply come clean. He made the decision to mislead the public, (and it) adversely affected the university and the foot-ball program, Long said, choking up at one point as he discussed telling players that their coach was gone. There was a pattern of mis-leading and manipulative behavior to deceive me.

Scott Kishston rifled a six iron into the hole on No. 5 from 157 yards out during the Sunday blitz. The shot produced his third career ace and, need-less to say, picked up the closest to the pin prize on that hole. Buddy Slay overcame Kishtons eagle to take first place in the blitz at +10. Kishton (+8) was in second place, one shot ahead of Bob Randall. Other closest to the pin winners were Randall on No. 7 and Terry Hunter on Nos. 15 and 17.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. Bubba Watson had reason to feel like a rock star. His playoff win at the Masters on the second extra hole stretched into early evening, and when he finally slipped on the green jacket during the trophy presentation, the flashes from so many cameras danced across his face like strobe lights. Im not ready for fame, Watson said. I dont really want to be famous or any-thing like that. I just want to be me and play golf. He might not have a choice. His style of play Bubba golf is what he likes to call it already made him one of the popular figures on the PGA Tour. In the buttoned-up sport of golf, Watson is differ-ent. He hits the ball a mile, rarely in a straight line to where hes trying to get. His driver is pink from the shaft to the head. When hes not on the course, he is posting videos of his crazy stunts on Twitter. His dream pur-chase was the General Lee 01, the original car in the TV series The Dukes of Hazard. And now he is the Masters champion. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are the top two stars of their genera-tion. Rory McIlroy is right behind them, carving his own niche around the world as a U.S. Open champion with the rawest skill of any player in his 20s. And now there is Bubba, on a first-name basis every-where he goes. Perhaps it was only fitting that during his victory speech Sunday he found one downside to winning the Masters. He has been in the members locker room since he first showed up at Augusta National in 2008 and couldnt break 70. The next time he drives down Magnolia Lane, he will walk through a different door, up the stairs to the locker room reserved for champions. I heard now that I leave the locker room, Watson said. Its going to be sad. Ive been there for four years. I know all the guys. They treat me real well. So, sorry. Its time to move on, and move up. Watson, with his fourth career win in his last 51 starts, is now No. 4 in the world, which makes him the highest-ranked American. He is virtually a lock to be on the Ryder Cup team. Watson lost a playoff to Martin Kaymer at the 2010 PGA Championship. He has earned more than $6 million in the last two seasons and played in the 2010 Ryder Cup. How much better can he be? Major champion ... I mean, cant do any better than this, he said. Ive won four times and won a major. Who knows? Thats the best part about history. We dont know whats going to happen. We dont know the future. We dont know anything. Hopefully, I keep crying. Hopefully, I keep having the passion to play golf and keep doing what Im doing. Watson showed his emotions at the start of the week. Someone asked him what it would mean to win, and he brought up the adoption of his first son, Caleb, two weeks ago. Watson got so choked up he walked away. Winning the Masters? He was uncontrollable. He sobbed on the shoulder of his mother, Molly, and hugged everyone he could find. Watson still doesnt have a teacher. Why do I want somebody to tell me what to do? he once said. Im still a kid. Im hitting shots that I want to hit. Im doing the things that I want to do. I play it my way. Bubba golf. Its going to be fun.

The suspension by the team takes effect imme-diately. It was announced shortly before Guillen held a news conference to explain what he said. The Venezuelan told Time magazine he loves Castro and respects the retired Cuban leader for staying in power so long. In response, at least two local officials said Guillen should lose his job. At the news conference, Guillen said his comments were misinterpreted by the reporter, and he doesnt love or admire the dictator. I was saying I cannot believe somebody who hurt so many people over the years is still alive, Guillen told the news conference. But Guillen took responsibility for the uproar, and said it left him sad and embarrassed. He also said he accepted the teams punishment. Im very sorry about the problem, what hap-pened, said Guillen, who is only five games into his tenure with the Marlins. I will do everything in my power to make it better. ... I know its going to be a very bumpy ride.
DEAR ABBY: Whats the best thing to do when someone insults me for being myself? My hair has been bright blue for the last two semesters of col-lege. I like it. Im young, and my family is letting me express my wild side while Im in school. Six months ago I went to meet my ex-boyfriends mother, and the first thing she said to me was, Youre one of my sons phases, right? Boys dont actually bring girls with blue hair home to Mama. Abby, it was with my exs encouragement that I dyed my hair this bright color. My family, my church and most of my teachers think its OK. Is there a social stigma attached to exotically dyed hair? And whats the best way to react when someone insults me for just being myself? -NICE PERSON IN WALLAND, TENN. DEAR NICE PERSON: Whether theres a stigma attached to looking dif-ferent depends on who is doing the looking. Some people -your ex-boyfriends mother, for instance -find it off-put-ting. Did you tell her that it was with her sons encour-agement that you dyed your hair blue? It would have been interesting to see her reaction. It would also be interesting to know what shade his current girlfriends hair is. When others comment about the unusual color of your hair, instead of treat-ing it as an insult, smile and say, Dont judge a book by its cover. Then change the subject. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 26 years. I love him, but hes a ter-rible listener. Hes not that way with everyone. When were out socializing, hes a good conversationalist and a polite listener. Its when we are home that he never lets me finish a sen-tence. When were alone, I cant express a complete opinion or thought without being interrupted halfway through a word or sen-tence. He just cuts me off and starts talking on the subject. Im an intelligent woman with valid opinions, but he would rather hear the sound of his own voice than mine. How do I get him to let me speak and not interrupt? -SILENCED IN ILLINOIS DEAR SILENCED: Is your husband controlling in other aspects of your relationship? If not, the problem may be that you have been together so long he thinks he knows where your sentences are going, so he responds before you com-plete your entire thought. One way to handle this would be to interrupt HIM by saying, Excuse me! I wasnt finished talking. Or, You finished my sentence, but that wasnt what I was going to say. What I meant was ... ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My sister, Beth, and I are very close, but a constant source of contention is her boyfriend, Brody. Beth and Brody have broken up several times, and each time it happens, she fills me in on every horrible thing he has ever done. They always seem to get back together, and then Beth expects me to like him despite everything I know. Does the fact that she forgives and forgets mean that I have to do the same? -TOO MUCH INFO IN OHIO DEAR TOO MUCH INFO: No, it doesnt. But you should be civil, even if youre not warm and friendly. Then cross your fingers and hope your sis-ter recognizes less drama is healthier and the rela-tionship ends soon. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont be disheartened by what someone says. Trust in your judgment and follow your heart. Resurrect goals and modi-fy them to fit the changing times. Your ideas are good; all thats required is fine-tuning. Love is in the stars. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put power and author-ity in your voice if you want something. Pressure may not be your style, but today it will help you make your point and get your way. A contract, interview or professional advance-ment is looking positive. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of your health and your emotional outlook, and refuse to argue. Discipline and changes that can improve your life should be your intent. Love is on the rise, but poor choices will lead to trouble. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pour time and energy into creative projects and do your best to explain whatever situation you are being questioned about in an objective but descriptive manner. How you present yourself and your beliefs will make a difference. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may crave change, but dont go overboard. Size up your situation and look at the responsibilities that are likely to develop before you take a leap of faith that has potential to spin out of control. Baby steps will be your best bet. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be true to you; dont let someone turn you into someone youre not. Confusion regarding part-nerships is apparent, and it will be necessary to step back from a relationship to re-evaluate your position and intentions. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen carefully to get the inside scoop regard-ing how to take advantage of an opportunity. Make a change in the way you do your job, or pick up a skill that contributes to earning more cash. Hard work will pay off. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone from your past will come through for you regarding a job or a partnership that has potential to raise your sta-tus. Make a space at home that will be conducive to enhancing your creativity and expanding your finan-cial prospects. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put your heart on the line and spell out what you feel you need in your life to achieve greater satisfaction and happiness. You will not receive unless you ask. Youll know quickly if someone is in your corner or opposing you. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Explosive situations always lead to disaster. Avoid anyone who is erratic or refusing to listen to reason. Focus on what you can do to improve your domestic situation and your physical surroundings. A change of residence or upgrading your home will help your emotional outlook. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Old friends will help you reach personal goals. An effort to fix whatever isnt working for you will result in greater encour-agement. Love is in the stars. Spending time with someone who strives to live a healthy lifestyle will enhance your life. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont let confusion lead you down the wrong path. If someone is send-ing mixed signals or wont offer a straight answer, move on. A change of heart will occur when you realize the motives some-one is harboring. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
