By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comKaylie Grace Spradley is a perky 11-month-old girl whose main focus is pulling herself up on items as she attempts to walk. Sometimes she utters the words mama and dada. Shes only weeks away from celebrating her first birthday as a normal child with normal medical concerns. However, her parents Keith and Betsy Spradley, can vividly remember days last year when their daughters life and happiness was in doubt. Kaylie was born premature at 32 weeks on April 28, 2011 at North Florida Regional Medical Center. She weighed only 3 pounds, 14 ounces and was 17 inches long. Although premature, her lungs were developed enough for her to breath. However she had other medical problems and had to be kept in an incubator for 22 days to keep her body temperature regulated. They (doctors) didnt like for us to hold Kaylie because of her body temperature dropping so much, Keith Spradley said. That was tough... Just sitting there staring at your baby in a box wears on you. When Kaylie was one week old, she was rushed to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville because she was throwing up green bile. Doctors diagnosed her with a stage 1 necrotizing enterocolitis, a bowel obstruction common to premature infants. She remained at Shands in the Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for four days where she had a tube down her throat and a PICC line, offering intravenous access. Sometimes she would stop breathing and her heart rate would become too slow. Contributions from the local March of Dimes helped make a significant contribution to Kaylies health. She now weighs 19 pounds, 6 ounces. This weekend the March of Dimes will give residents an opportunity to help other babies in need during the organizations annual walk-a-thon fundraiser. Kaylie is an ambassador for this weekends fundraiser. The 2012 March of Dimes March For Babies is Saturday in Olustee Park in downtown Lake City.

But if losing his hair, in a public meeting, with a pair of pink hair clippers, in front of close to 100 people meant the United Way of Suwannee Valley met its challenge goal, then Mike McKee, United Way president took the buzz cut as a good sport. United Way of Suwannee Valley held its 2012 Royal Awards Banquet and annual meeting Thursday night at Florida Gateway College Howard Conference Center, chronicling the organiza-By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County Charter Review Commission passed a motion to vote on move two at-large county commission seats at the next meeting with further legal analysis provided. The amendment was opposed by Glynnell Presley, who claimed the addition of two at-large seats would dilute the strength of minority voices on the commission. Charter member Bettye Lane expressed concern over the amount of familiarity the at-large positions would have with the needs of individual districts. Its a matter of familiarity and common concerns, she said. Charter member Jack Berry encouraged the amendment to be pushed County Line Fire surroundedOfficials unsure of containment lines security.By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comFire officials have boxed in the County Line Fire with 45.5 miles of containment lines completely around its perimeter, Southern Area Type 2 Incident Management Team public information officer Bonnie Strawser said Thursday. Although the fire has been surrounded with containment lines, officials do not have a high confidence level about the security of all of those lines, Strawser said. Just because we have containment lines, doesnt mean the fire is contained, Strawser said. Strawser estimated that 25 percent of containment lines were solid, meaning a wide area has been cleared of dry vegetation that would feed the fire. Strawser explained that the approach fire officials utilize is to take fuel out of the fires path in an effort to keep it from spreading. A major part of the acreage included in the fire, which has now grown to over 35,000 acres, is composed of land that has undergone strategic burning. The purpose of strategic burns is to eliminate or reduce as much fuel as possible between a stable point, such as a road, and the fire. The whole idea is to burn with small fires to prevent a big fire, Strawser said. Fire officials also plow the soil to reinforce containment lines. Strawser said that it was not possible to conduct a direct, face-to-face attack because there are no roads in the area where the fire is predominately located and the ground is wet and will not support much weight. Itll carry a fire but it wont carry a tractor, Strawser said. According to Strawser, the most recent strategic burn was done on swamp lands. It was a spotty fire at best, Strawser said. Its still a line but theres still lots of fuel. According to Operations Section Chief Pete Kubiak, the next method of fire containment will be the use of chemically-filled FIRE continued on 3A PANEL continued on 3ATONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterChristine Douglas, a stylist with Floyds Barbershop, watches as Mike McKee, United Way outgoing president, closes his eyes to avoid his falling hair.

The brief outline, contained in an affidavit filed in support of the seconddegree murder charges, appeared to contradict Zimmermans claim that Martin attacked him after he had turned away and was returning to his vehicle. In the affidavit, prosecutors also said that Martins mother identified cries for help heard in the background of a 911 call as her sons. There had been some question as to whether Martin or Zimmerman was the one crying out. The account of the shooting was released as Zimmerman, 28, appeared at a four-minute hearing in a jailhouse courtroom, setting in motion what could be a long, drawn-out process, or an abrupt and disappointingly short one for the Martin family because of the strong legal protections contained in Floridas stand your ground law on self-defense. During the hearing, Zimmerman stood up straight, held his head high and wore a gray jail jumpsuit. He spoke only to answer Yes, sir twice after he was asked basic questions from the judge, who was not in the courtroom but on closedcircuit TV. The defendants hair was shaved down to stubble and he had a thin goatee. His hands were shackled in front of him.State courts struggling with juvenile sentencesTALLAHASSEE A Florida appeals court panel said Thursday that 80 years is too long to keep a juvenile locked up for a nonhomicide crime. However, the three-judge panel of the states 1st District Court of Appeal also said uncertainty will continue over compliance with a U.S. Supreme Court opinion that rejected absolute life sentences for juveniles who havent killed anyone until a higher court or the Florida Legislature addresses the issue. The judges struck down an 80-year sentence for an inmate who committed armed robberies when he was 17. A term that long is the functional equivalent of life without parole, the appellate judges wrote as they sent the case back to a Pensacola trial court for resentencing. They also urged lawmakers to follow the high courts guidance and explore how to comply with its opinion.First Lady praises military families on stopJACKSONVILLE First Lady Michelle Obama is continuing her push to help military families.

The young women were given gift cards that they can use for their upcoming proms. (AP) Grey spends 80th birthday in styleNEW YORK Joel Grey partied into the night while celebrating his 80th birthday. The festivities began at curtain call at his Broadway show Anything Goes, when the cast wheeled out a big blue birthday cake. Then stage and screen legend Bernadette Peters came out to lead the audience in a few celebratory verses of Happy Birthday. Eighty is the new 60, Grey told the audience at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Backstage, still in costume and makeup, Grey admitted being surprised by the gesture, and equally happy to see his old friend. Anytime I see Bernadette, its thrilling to me. I love her, Grey said. Grey also said that hes feeling better than ever, saying: Everything seems fresh and new and exciting to me. Later in the evening the celebrations continued with a party at the McKittrick Hotel, the home of the immersive, mask-filled, genre-bending Chelsea show Sleep No More. Grey held court at its bar and also toasted the 40th anniversary of the Oscarwinning Cabaret.Fosse classic Cabaret restored to original gloryLOS ANGELES It took a stray bit of dirt to scratch the perfection of Cabaret, and painstaking effort to return it to cinematic glory. The restored Cabaret, minus damage that had prevented a highdefinition version, earned the opening spot at the four-day TCM Classic Film Festival. Stars Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey were scheduled to attend Thursdays ceremony marking the musicals 40th anniversary. Minnelli, whose turn as cabaret singer Sally Bowles captured a best actress Academy Award and cemented her young stardom, said making Cabaret was a joyful secret, filmed in Munich and far away from meddling Los Angeles studio bosses. Director Bob Fosse got away with murder. We all did, Minnelli said in a recent phone call from New York. Shes on a concert tour, Confessions, based on her album of the same title.Dateline NBC series puts parental maxims to testNEW YORK Correspondent Natalie Morales ended up in tears when she put herself and her 8-yearold son through the same parenting test that Dateline NBC is subjecting others to for a series that starts Sunday. Using hidden cameras and actors, the network set up scenarios to see if kids really follow their parents instructions to avoid strangers, dont get into a car with a drunk driver or dont cheat. The results will probably depress you. Time and again, children gave their names and addresses to a stranger who had taken their picture and talked about putting them on TV. Promised free ice cream, they climbed into a van driven by an actor who could easily close the door on them and speed away. Parents watched it all on monitors nearby. I would have lost my money if I put a bet on it, one cringing parent said after watching a youngster climb into a car with an actor pretending to be drunk behind the wheel. For four consecutive Sunday nights, Dateline NBC will show the scenarios, which also test whether kids would cheat or discriminate if given the opportunity.

From staff reportsTickets are selling out for the FGC Entertainment season finale, featuring Wellborn-based rock band Loveloud, this Saturday at Florida Gateway College. The Saturday night performance in the Levy Performing Arts Center serves as a reunion and farewell concert of sorts for the band, whose hard-hitting sounds and positive lyrics have landed them some unique opportunities in the few years theyve been together.

But their most popular songs along with a few unreleased tracks will be on display Saturday night, beginning at 7:30 p.m. The show is sponsored by the Law Offices of Tommy Demas. Tickets can be purchased by calling (386) 754-4340 or by visiting www.fgcentertainment. com. Individual seats are $10 for general admission and $5 for FGC students, staff and faculty.

Local chairs for the march are doctors Chuck and Robin Hall. Kathy McCallister, March of Dimes Suwannee Valley Community Director, said the walk will be a 5-mile trek through the downtown area. McCallister said 56 teams have registered to take part in the event and she anticipates at least 250 people participating. Last years fundraiser goal was $85,000 and our goal this year is $100,000, McCallister said. We are still looking for teams. Teams can register online at www.marchforbabies.org. We are anticipat ing a huge turnout and anticipating well go over our fundraising goal, McCallister said. Spradley encouraged people to take part in the fundraiser. We were going to walk, take part and try to raise money just because we had a premature baby, he said. Its important to take part in an event like this because you never know when it will happen to you or one of your family members. Its scary when it does happen to you. As much research as they can do, its great that theres an organization where the money goes to help these babies get home faster or save a babys life. plastic spheres dropped from a helicopter into the interior of the fire. The spheres, called ping pong balls are one-half inch in diameter. They are filled with antifreeze and potassium permanganate by a machine that quickly drops the balls from the air. Within 10 to 30 seconds the balls ignite, consuming any lingering fuel on the ground. The number of spheres dropped depends on the reaction of the fire as well as the conditions of the weather. We can run several thousand, Kubiak said. It depends on how much fire we need, it might only take a dozen. Kubiak said the intensity of the fire created can be managed by the spacing of the spheres. According to Kubiak, this operation is fairly commonly used for prescribed burning, controlled fires which are used to prevent out of control wildfires from occurring. We are very familiar with this operation, he said. HANNAH O.

I think we ought to have it on the ballot so that people can decide what they want, Berry said. An amendment that would take out the current appeals process for the termination and appointment of department heads by the county manager was also moved forward on Thursday night. Currently, the county manager retains the right to terminate department heads. Terminated individuals are subsequently given the right to appeal the county managers decision. Berry proposed that the appellate process be taken out so as to keep the politics of the board of the County Commission out of an appeal for reinstatement. Charter member Nathan Morgan motioned to take out the appellate process in that procedure. The amendment was pushed forward 10 to 2. The Commission also discussed the possibility of changing the county attorney position to a non-elected post. A motion was passed to have legal representatives of the charter develop legally suitable options for this amendment to present to the board at the next meeting. The commission will revisit all passed motions at the next meeting April 26. If the motions continue to move forward, they will end up at one of three public hearing dates which have yet to be officially scheduled.

T he District of Columbia on Friday completed the first phase of testing for its $1.5 billion streetcar project. The nations capital joins big cities like Los Angeles in advancing the revival of a transportation option that has been obsolete for more than half a century. The Obama admin istration is spearheading the effort to turn back the clock. If $1.5 billion seems like a lot its an entire years income-tax revenue for the city Washington bureaucrats have a ready answer. A January 2012 study commissioned by the city concluded the 19th-century-style trolley service strengthens real-estate values by adding $5 bil lion to $7 billion to the value of existing property and sparking an additional $5 billion to $8 bil lion in new development in the 10 years after completion. But wait, theres more. Operating electric trains in the middle of busy city streets will draw an additional 6,300 to 7,700 jobs to the District. Its a perpetual-motion machine of prosperity, and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood wants more of it. Two years ago, he loosened funding rules so light-rail and trolley projects would have an easier time bypassing pesky cost-ben efit analyses. Measuring only cost and how fast a project can move the most people the great est distance simply misses the boat, Mr. LaHood wrote on his Fast Lane blog on Jan. 14, 2010. On Easter Sunday, Mr. LaHood blogged triumphantly over a 5 percent bump in tran sit ridership for the month of February, saying, If we build it, riders will come. Objective measurements suggest thats simply not the case. According to the Census Bureau, the num ber of people commuting to work on public transportation dropped from 12.6 percent in 1960 to 5 percent today. The per centage of the population that depends on the automobile for this task has remained essen tially unchanged since the 1970s despite the hundreds of billions of dollars spent by state and fed eral authorities on transit. Almost as many people work from home 4.3 percent as take the bus or subway to work. The number who take a streetcar or trolley is an almost unmeasurable 0.1 percent, but not because the systems are unavailable. Last year, the Cascade Policy Institute surveyed five major events in Portland, Ore., to count how many in the liberal stronghold took advantage of the tram or train. A mere 8 percent hopped on the trolley on the way to the circus. About 80 percent of the environmentally conscious attendees of a green building show at the Expo Center used internal-combustion machines to get there. Light rail account ed for just 2.2 percent of trips to the shopping center on the Friday before Thanksgiving. The folly of trolleys goes far beyond the massive debt they create. Mixing a rail system with automobile and pedestrian traffic is a recipe for accidents. Houstons Wham Bam Tram caused 245 accidents between 2004 and 2009. Still, public officials remain infatuated with the idea of get ting other people out of their automobiles so the government can decide when and where they can travel. In these tight budgetary times, such old-fashioned transit boondoggles should be the first to go. Astreetcarnameddebt ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW I want to win the PGA Masters golf tournament.B ubba Watson is a well-liked young man from Baghdad, Florida, who won the PGA Masters this last Sunday. Overjoyed and emotional, he was congratulat-ed and hugged by lots of caring family and friends. I bet that Bubbas road to this incredible accomplishment began with a tiny spark, like playing his first putt-putt golf, or seeing his dad or personal hero make a great shot. I think most great interests and accomplishments begin with a tiny spark, a dream, or a special event in your life. Do you remember a childhood dream? Is there something now that you would like to do, have, or be? Its easy to be discouraged by others, who may have told you that your goals and dreams are unrealistic. Maybe a par-ent said, Youve got your head in the clouds? Did a friend discourage you? You may have torn down your own dreams, thinking them too lofty or unreachable. One day in 1991 I was driving my wife to work in Panama City when we passed a coun-seling center. I said, Thats what Id like to do: counsel troubled youth, and help them build happy, successful lives for themselves. My own child-hood was not very happy, and my life wasnt off to a good start. It took me many years to learn how to overcome my own demons and build a happy, successful life for myself. It occurred to me that having traveled that path myself, I might be able to help others along that journey. She said, Why dont you go in and apply? I replied, No, to do counseling you need a mas-ters degree and experience. But later that day I did apply. It turns out that in Florida you can do some beginning coun-seling with just a bachelors degree, under close supervi-sion from a licensed counselor. That supervision is the best education and preparation you can get, when you combine it with taking graduate courses in counseling and psychology. Just mentioning my interest led to the career of my dreams: counseling troubled youth and families, and eventually teaching psychology at Florida Gateway College. Thats just one of the minor changes in my life that have made a big differ-ence to me. What does it take to start the ball rolling? Follow a few basic principles, and watch for opportunities. You never know where trying something new will lead you. Life is long. If not now, when? If not you, then who? No one has found an absolute limit to what people can do. Why not use a little of my time, ability, and effort to try something new and dif-ferent? Can I afford the time, money, and effort? What can I do to get started? Keep your eyes and ears open. Nurture an interest in talking with others about their interests, hobbies, pastimes, and their careers. Does this spark a new interest of your own? Share your interests, your dreams, with someone.

Tiny changes huge results Y ouve probably seen the Citi credit-card commercial that has generated a lot of buzz. It opens with a womans say ing, My boyfriend and I were going on vacation. She appears to be in a clothing store and needs to get a few accessories. With her Citi card, of course. Then the scene changes. She picks out a new belt (its a rock-climbing harness) and some nylons (rock-climbing ropes). And what girl wouldnt need new shoes? she asks. (Yes, for rock-climbing, of course.) Then we watch as she hoists herself up to the tiny top of a huge rock formation we cant believe is real, with her guy fol-lowing. Natch. As we get dizzy watching her triumphantly stand on the little precipice, we hear her voiceover again: We talked about getting a diamond. But with all the thank you points Ive been earning, I flew us to the rock I really had in mind. In the background, we hear the lyrics Somebody left the gate open chime in. (From Into the Wild by LP.) It turns out the actors are real rock climbers, climbing a real rock formation near Moab, Utah. Its all very glorious. I cant stand the ad.In fact, it just about has me climbing the walls! This is a tough girl who eschews those silly feminine trappings of fashion for real power -high heels for high rocks. And that rock on the third finger of the left hand? Who needs it? Especially when she has all those handy-dandy thank you points instead. Well, let me offer this: Her Citi thank you points are not going to keep her warm at night. And they are not going to help her with the baby if she gets preg nant by the boyfriend she doesnt think she needs to marry. Or, rather, who doesnt think he needs to marry her. So whats to keep him from finding a younger, more attractive rock-climber? And Somebody left the gate open? I guess the gate was closed when a rock meant mar-riage, not hiking. I know, its just an ad. But it reflects a culture in which girls are more and more supposed to be tough, independent, aggres sively sexual and with no need for men or marriage. In fact, thats all seen as constraining. I flew us to the rock I really had in mind. Real women cre-ate their own destiny, with their own money, and they dont need to consult anyone. Not even someone they might con-descend to love. Whatever we want in our professional lives, most women want marriage, and children, and a man who will pursue them and, in some tangible way, care for them. Thats how we are built. Yes, I want my own daughters to rise to the tops of their professions. If they want to get to the top of precarious rock formations, too, thats great. But you can bet Im also clear that, of course, real-life women want men, and marriage, and family. And so my daughters had better be darn tough. Because increasingly in our cul-ture, it takes a strong woman to admit just that.

T he U.S. and Afghanistan signed a deal Sunday that should end the worst point of friction between U.S.-led forces and the Afghan government and its people. From now on, special operations missions, including night raids, will be conducted by the Afghan military, with U.S. troops in a supporting role, and in general pursuant to a war-rant issued by a special panel. The night raids were deeply unpopular with the Afghan peo-ple. The raids were undoubt-edly terrifying and offended longstanding Afghan cultural norms, especially when the troops entered houses where women were present. By signing the agreement giving the Afghan military the lead role in special operations, the U.S. hopes it will remove an obstacle to negotiations over the U.S. and NATOs role in Afghanistan after the scheduled 2014 withdrawal date for for-eign troops. However, the U.S. agreement to limit itself to a supporting role in special operations is not a decision that, once taken, can easily be reversed. The arrangements success depends on the ability of the Afghan military, which is expected to be at the planned full strength of 352,000 by years end. The Afghan forces are already being tested. March 21 was the start of the Afghan new year, and with warmer weather comes the traditional start of the fight ing season. Both the U.S. and Afghan governments are nego tiating an agreement that would guarantee a U.S. presence there for another 10 years. That could be a hard sell with the American people and Congress.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVERTISEMENT FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 13-14, 2012 5A 5A FRI. 4-13 SEC A 1-8.indd 5 4/12/12 9:19:40 AM
Sometime ago I read a survey taken by someone. A group of adults were given a sheet of paper with this statement on it: When it comes to pray, I____________. They were to fill in the blank. The majority of the results fell into these categories: I dont pray enough, I dont know what to pray, I dont know if prayer does any good. I realize that this subject can be a little touchy to some, but God had laid it on me to teach the truth about His word. My prayer is that this will be received with the same, as it is sent, in love. It amazes me today that so many who stand up to pray, including some pastors, dont know what the Bible teaches us about prayer. So many have to make sure they get all the thees and thous in. We often try to be so proper we forget the simplicity of prayer. Jesus gave us the example of how to pray in Matthew 5:9-14: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one; for Yours is the kingdom and power and glory forever. Amen (NKJ). This is not the Lords Prayer, it is the example prayer, for Jesus said in this manner therefore pray. The Lords prayer is John Chapter 17. The example prayer tells us to pray to the Father, not to God, not to Lord, not to Jesus, but to the Father. In John chapter 17, Jesus prayed to the Father. Four times in these 26 verses, He says Father; one time, Holy Father; and one time, Righteous Father. Today, many people begin every sentence with Father, or God, or Lord, or Jesus. Prayer is a simple request to the Father and we can make these requests with normal conversation. It does not have to be so proper. Jesus also gave us this instruction in John 16:23: And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you. So we see plainly that we are to pray to the Father, in the name of Jesus. We have these pre-given instructions. The Holy Spirit had the writer to put these in the Bible so we will know how to pray the prayers that God the Father hears and answers. James Montgomery said Prayer is the Christians vital breath, the Christians native air. Surely we should seek to know all we can about such vitalizing air. As in the physical realm our life depends on the air we inhale, so in the spiritual sphere the development of our Christian life is dependent on the recognition of the importance of prayer. Communion with God must be the element which we live in and move and have our being. Prayer is not only a privilege, it is necessary, for without its exercise we are cut off from the source of life, light, and love. Hugh Sherrill, an ordained minister and Bible teacher at Eastside Baptist Church, is available for revivals.Onesimus is a profitable assistant to Paul, but because the former slave is the property of Philemon he must be returned. How can Paul, an apostle, inform Philemon of how to accept Onesimus back without appearing overbearing? How will Paul handle this sticky situation? The book of Philemon, located between Titus and Hebrews in our New Testament, is a personal letter, written by the apostle Paul and is filled with love. It is an appeal for Philemon to accept back Onesimus as a brother in Christ and not as a useless slave. Paul begins in standard first century letter writing fashion by addressing the letter to Philemon and those in his household. Then he follows with a prayer concerning Philemon, an appeal to Philemon, and his expectations of Philemon. Paul concludes with the greetings from those accompanying Paul to the household of Philemon and the traditional benediction of requesting the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ to be with the spirit of Philemon. Surely there were other personal letters that Paul wrote, so why do we have this one? While we may not learn why only this letter is included, we know that we can receive instruction in some things from this short New Testament letter. In the appeal section of the letter (verses 8-20), there are four things we can observe from Paul about how to handle a sticky situation. The first is that Paul is not going to order Philemon to take Onesimus back but rather appeal to him intellectually. We can never order anyone to do anything for us. Paul wants Philemons consent, his actions to be based upon his own free will. Second, Paul does not want to assume that Philemon would take Onesimus back just because an apostle is making the request. Our position in life should not be the compelling factor. Third, Paul would like for Philemon to consider the hand of God being active while Onesimus was separated from Philemon because it gave Onesimus an opportunity to become a Christian. We need to give God and His word time to work. Fourth, the relationship between Philemon and Onesimus has changed. Paul is not speaking of the master/slave relationship but of the relationship they have in Christ Jesus. Both are on equal plane with each other. Both are brothers in Christ. Both are partners with Paul in the spreading of the gospel. How we handle the situation should improve our relationship. A final thing we can learn from Paul is to expect the best in people. Paul expects the best from Philemon and assumes the relationship will not be hurt because of this letter. Paul knows Philemon will honor this appeal even beyond his expectations. Paul continues by asking Philemon to prepare me lodging. And finally, Paul knows that Philemon will continue to pray for Pauls release from prison. Pauls writings are a masterpiece. His example is the best way to help us to deal with sticky situations. Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City area.

tions fundraising efforts this year as well as placing new officers on its board. The United Way of Suwannee Valley has provided services to area residents for 44 years. McKee challenged the community to at least match the $570,000 raised in the 2009-2010 campaign. The campaign was roughly $10,000 short of its goal when PCS donated another $10,000 bringing the final campaign tally to $571,361. I was concerned up until right before the meeting that we werent going to make our goal, but thank goodness for Potash Corp. that stepped up, McKee said. Terry Bakers leadership at Potash Corp. with the employees stepping up was wonderful. It was an awesome goal to reach. United Way officials realized the organization was close to $100,000 short of reaching its campaign goal, so they decided to focus on surpassing last years goal as well as the fundraising goals for 2009. I think were at about $3,000 more than we did last year, McKee said. This means a lot to the agencies who need the money. The need is great in the community. We could use more fundraising. Collectively, United Ways community impact initiatives resulted in United Ways receipt of $227,890 in grants and community agencies receipt of $276,722 in grants for a total of $504,612. Volunteers with corporate citizens raised $561,361. Combined with $504,612 in grant funds, United Ways community impact total is $1,075,973. Todd Sampson, the incoming United Way president, said the goals for the organization havent been established yet, but hes nearly certain the community goal for the fundraising campaign will be at least $685,000. The main goal is to help as many people in the community as we can through as many partners as we can, he said. Were looking forward to a successful year and hopefully we can bring in a little more money to the community than we did this last year. Sampson said he thinks the big thing for next year will be to get everyone involved in giving. There are 26 local United Way agencies. If everyone would give something then we could meet our goal, he said. Thats the key making sure people are aware of whats available. This money does stay local. Rita Dopp, United Way of Suwannee Valley executive director, said the annual banquet was fun. I think that when we work this hard all year we should get together, have fun and celebrate all the successes, in addition to being honest about all the challenges, she said. Dopp said the United Way wanted to get the trend line going up like in 2008-2009 and thats why McKee issued the challenge. He didnt just want to meet last years amount, he wanted meet the 2009 amount and get the trend line going back in the right direction, she said.

Say it with me: One bite at a time! This old clich is more than just a quick replyit contains the wisdom and necessity of a plan when tackling an overwhelming task. When we look at the overall picture, no wonder we want to run away! But no matter how huge a problem or project seems, it can be accomplished with a process of beginning at one point and continuing step by step until completion. So, I wonder what daunting task lies before you: finding a job, caring for elderly parents, overcoming an addiction, raising children, saving your marriage, or maybe just finding purpose in your lifethe possibilities are endless, but the first question is always the same: Where do I start? For the next several weeks, I hope to get the answer to this question and the inevitable ones that follow through an in depth look at the book of Nehemiah. This scripture is so valuable because it gives an eyewitness account of an overwhelming task with much opposition, and not only records his actions in reaching the goal, but also some of his private thoughts and prayers throughout the process. Nehemiah begins his story by telling of the troubling news he received from several men returning from Judah to Persia, where he served as cupbearer to the king. The report was bleak concerning the condition of the Jewish remnant and Jerusalem: Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down and its gates have been burned with fire(Nehemiah 1:3). (A little background: Jerusalem had been destroyed some 140 years earlier by the Babylonians, with the Jews being taken as slaves into exile. After Persia conquered Babylon, King Cyrus established a policy of returning exiles to their homeland. His successor, King Darius supported the reconstruction of the temple in Jerusalem, but little else had been accomplished.) After hearing this news, Nehemiah sat down and wept, then he mourned, fasted and prayed. In the original Hebrew language the word heard is transliterated sama. According to the Old Testament Lexical Aids, it means to hear, give undivided attention, to understand what one has heard, to obey, give heed toessentially denotes perceiving a message or sensing a sound. I want to suggest to you the answer to our first question. This is where we start, by really hearing the problem or need that warrants the project. To not just hear with one ear as it goes in and out the other, but with our undivided attention, to understand what is needed and then to give heed to and perceive what role we will play in accomplishing the task. Is our role as a leader, a helper, an encourager, or do we have a valid role at all? If we dont properly hear, we can react emotionally and make an even bigger mess out of a difficult issue. With good intentions, we can even move in a direction farther away from the real goal. Through hearing, Nehemiah determined that his goal was to bring glory to God by restoring the reality of Gods presence among his people in Jerusalem. Practically, his role would be to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem and implement civil authority. You and I are going to take this journey with him, but meanwhile, I encourage you to set aside time this week to hear. Pray about the role you are to play in the task you are facing, and get a clear picture of the goal. Take this important first stepbecause your heart matters!

Fort White beats Taylor County on Senior Night. Super seniorsS oftball is all about numbers, averages and percentages. One number seldom associated with the sport is 1.000, but that is the percentage of the Fort White senior class that has signed softball scholarships. Cecile Gomez signed with Jacksonville University last year, while Alison Wrench and Kayla Williams both signed with Thomas University during the season. Im glad I had the opportunity to coach all three of these girls, said second-year Lady Indians head coach Cassie Sparks. All three have set the bar high and will be missed. Our underclassmen have big shoes to fill. A testament to Sparks belief in her players is she went to bat for Wrench and Williams with Bill Wilson, her former coach and at her alma mater. The three seniors will be honored at 6:30 p.m. today, before the start of the game against Lafayette High. Now for numbers.Gomez has pitched 11 complete games and three shutouts this season. She has a 1.51 ERA in 102 innings. Opponents are hitting .164 against her. She has 177 strikeouts and helps herself with a .995 fielding percentage. At the plate, Gomez is hitting .302 with 10 runs and 13 RBIs. She has seven walks and struck out just once. Cecile is a coachs dream, Sparks said. Shes an amazing pitcher, but what people didnt get to see this year as much is her phenomenal fielding skills at other positions. Shes really grown as a pitcher with a young team behind her. She has a great attitude and never complains. Center fielder Wrench is hitting .483 with 13 runs, 10 RBIs, five walks and only three strikeouts. She has a 1.000 fielding percentage. Ali is an all-around athlete, Sparks said. She has an athletic mind and thinks about every situation. She carried the young outfielders under her wing this year. We are definitely going to miss her speed and outfield skills, as well as her bat. Williams has nine hits, three walks, two RBIs and seven runs. She has a fielding percentage of .889 at second base. Kayla is one of those players who always had it in her, Sparks said. Her range at second base has been a blessing; the coaches have confidence in her fielding more than anything.Senior sendoffs ASSOCIATED PRESSThis Oct. 29, 2011 file photo shows Florida quarterback Joh n Brantley (12) being sacked by Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones (29) during an NCAA college football game, in Jacksonville.

That has led to some ugly matchups against All-America outside linebacker Jarvis Jones and massive defensive tackles John Jenkins and Kwame Geathers. The Bulldogs ranked fifth in the nation in total defense last season, and most of the top players from that unit will play for the Black team in Saturdays G-Day spring game. Murray, tail-back Isaiah Crowell, receiv-er Tavarres King will lead the first-team offense on the Red team, according to G-Day rosters released on Wednesday. The challenge for the offense is nothing new. Its definitely a challenge every day, offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said Tuesday. There are a lot of veterans over there. Some of them have been playing three years. It makes it harder for us but I think its going to make it better for us in the long run. It makes us fight every day in prac-tice and its going to help us in the fourth quarter in Dawgs rebuilt offensive line having trouble.

Ashley Shoup picked up the win after entering the game in relief of Jessica Keene and Erin Anderson in the fourth inning. Shoup finished the game without allowing an earned run and shut down P.K. Yonges hot start. Shes the perfect pitcher for a team with fast bats, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. Shes got really good control and did a great job. Im just excited for the seniors, because theyve worked really hard and were starting to come from behind to win some of these games.

Jimmie Johnson189; behind -37 As the NASCAR circuit cranks up again following the Easter break,there are several drivers who need to step up their performance to reach the levels expected o f them,and others who are off to surprisingly strong starts. Carl Edwards,for instance,is showing signs of conti nuing the trend in which the runner-up in Sprint Cuppoints one year is basically a flop the next. After six races,Edwards has yet to show the speed t hat kept him in the title hunt last year all the way to the final lap at Homestead,where he wound up tied in po ints with Tony Stewart but lost the tie-breaker,as Stewa rt had five wins to his one. Edwards is 11th in the standings heading to Texas Motor Speedway,47 points behind his teammate andpoints leader Greg Biffle.So far,Edwards has not le d a lap all year. In his career,Kyle Busch has scored 104 victories i n NASCARs top three series,but none since he was par ked for the rest of the weekend at Texas Motor Speedway last fall after wrecking truck series championship conte nder Ron Hornaday Jr. Since that weekend,he has just one top-five finish in Cup,a runner-up run at Auto Club Speedway. On the Nationwide Series side,hes running his own team,but the results have been lackluster.He has anaverage finish of 17.4 and a best finish of eighth at Auto Club. Jeff Gordon,who has had fast cars at most races thi s year,has just one top-10 finish to show for his eff orts,and hes 21st in the standings.He appeared headed for a win at Martinsville only to be taken out in a crash wit h Clint Bowyer on the first of two attempts at a green-whit echeckered-flag finish. A.J.Allmendinger got one of the premier rides in NASCAR when he was picked to replace Kurt Busch inthe No.22 Dodge at Penske Racing,but until a second place finish at Martinsville,he hasnt run like a C hase contender.Hes 20th in the standings with no other top10s besides Martinsville. Kasey Kahne perhaps is the biggest surprise of the season,but not in a way hed like.After moving to t he No. 5 team at Hendrick Motorsports with his crew chiefKenny Francis,he was expected to be an immediateChase contender.But after six races,hes mired in 3 1st place in the standings,96 points out of 10th place after experiencing a mix of driver mistakes and mechanica l failures. On the other hand,defending Cup champion Tony Stewart,who normally doesnt hit his stride until m idsummer,is off to an unusually fast start,with two w ins already.And Dale Earnhardt Jr.is off to a strong st art and sits second in the standing,just six points beh ind leader Greg Biffle. When Ryan Newman andhis crew chief TonyGibson were celebrating their victory at MartinsvilleSpeedway on April 1,the date hadspecial significance for Gibsonand Newman and for legions oflongtime NASCAR fans. It was on that date 19 years earlier that the reigning Cupchampion Alan Kulwicki died in aplane crash as he was en route toBristol Motor Speedway for thatweeks race. Back then Gibson was Kulwickis car chief and a fabrica-tor for the team,Newman was inhigh school and was inspired byKulwicki to follow his example first to an engineering degree andthen to NASCARs elite circuit. Gibson said in the winners interview at Martinsville that the19th anniversary of Kulwickisdeath was on his mind before thegreen flag ever flew. I thought about that [Saturday] night actually,and itmeans a lot,he said.A lot of thereason Im where Im at isbecause of Alan.The fight tonever give up,and always believein yourself comes from him,too. Kulwicki was a rare breed,both driver and sole owner of his raceteam.He was underfunded com-pared to the top teams in his era,but he overcame that with hardwork and determination to winfive Cup races in his relativelybrief seven-year career and the1992 championship.His old crewmembers eventually moved on toother teams,and like Gibson,became known for their work ethic. Now Gibson is back working with another engineering gradu-ate,and the similarities betweenKulwicki and Newman dont endthere. Its just pretty cool to be with Ryan with the engineering back-ground,and hes just like Alan,Gibson said.Hes just like him.Hes wicked smart,and when youever try to catch him on some-thing,hes got a little bit betteranswer for you.So I dont try thatanymore Its pretty neat if you look back,same type of guy;a guy thatall he wants to do is race;all hebelieves in is racing.Just goes toshow you,you can be smart andyou can drive,too. Newman said Kulwickis legacy means a lot to him too. He was an inspiration for me, Newman said.He was part of thereason why I chose to be an engi-neer and follow through with myracing career at the same time. Just like Tony said,hes inspirational to a lot of people in thegarage;that never-give-up atti-tude;the underdog kind of men-tality that he had.Its no matterwhat,well do our best and thatsall we can do. Kulwickis championship year of 1992 wound up being one of thegreat turning points in NASCARhistory. Besides being the last time that a driver/sole team owner won atitle,it marked a major changingof the guard in the Cup series.Inthe 92 season finale,RichardPetty ran his final Cup race,and Jeff Gordon ran his first. The championship that year saw six drivers still in the run-ning up until the season finale atAtlanta. Davey Allison,Bill Elliott and Kulwicki had the best chances,but Harry Gant,Kyle Petty andMark Martin also had mathemat-ical chances. Allison,the wildly popular young member of the famedAlabama Gang,crashed out earlyin the finale at Atlanta,and nevergot another shot at a champi-onship.He died in a helicoptercrash the next year. Elliott never came as close to winning a championship again,and Junior Johnson,the car owner who led him to the runner-up position in 92,saw his longrun as a dominant force inNASCAR essentially come to anend. Gant,who scored two wins in 92,running his career total to 18,never won again or contended foranother title,and retired from theCup series at the end of 1994. Kyle Petty,who finished fifth in the 92,standings,won one raceand finished fifth in points thenext season,but was never higherthan 15th after that. Of the six in contention for the title in 1992,only Mark Martinremained a factor on down theroad.Hes won 33 races since1993,and finished in the top fivein the points standings 11 times. The late NASCAR writer David Poole,in his book about the 1992season,summed up the lingeringeffects of that year,and thetragedies that followed,by saying:If any lesson is to be learnedfrom the events of the 1992 sea-son and the months that followedthe climactic race at Atlanta,per-haps it is that life is not lived in astraight line.It comes,instead,ina series of circles that change con-stantly as they ripple across thecircles made by the lives of thosearound us. Perhaps that was Pooles way of explaining how after 19 years,Tony Gibson,who had stints atHendrick Motorsports and DaleEarnhardt Inc.,is back in victorylane with another engineer-driver,Ryan Newman,and working for ateam co-owned by driver TonyStewart. NOTEBOOK Crew shakeup on JRM teamsJR Motorsports,looking for an improvement in the performance of its Nationwide Seriesteams,has swapped the crew chiefs for its No.88 and No.5 teams. Crew chief Bruce Cook will move to the No. 88 Chevrolets driven by Cole Whitt,while TonyEury Sr.,the teams competition director and aveteran crew chief,will take over the No.5 inaddition to his regular duties. Tony Eury Jr.s role as crew chief for Danica Patricks No.7 car will remain as is. Our teams have a tremendous responsibility, not only to perform at the standards we set forourselves but reflect the commitment to excel-lence of our sponsors,team co-owner KelleyEarnhardt Miller said in a team release.Ouron-track performance isnt meeting those stan-dards,and we felt a change was necessary. The No.5 car will race at Texas Motor Speedway this week with team co-owner DaleEarnhardt Jr.driving.He and Eury Sr.,hisuncle,won 15 Sprint Cup races between 2000and 2004. Cook takes over the No.88 team that has one top-five and two top-10 finishes this season andis sixth in the standings with the rookie Whittdoing the driving. Bruces demeanor is probably more suitable in the developmental process of young drivers,and Tony Sr.has the experience and familiaritywith Dale Jr.that can help get our 5 car toVictory Lane,Earnhardt Miller said.Controversial Chevy retiredTeam owner Rick Hendrick recently told reporters from ESPN that the No.48 Chevroletthat failed inspection at Daytona InternationalSpeedway,and led to a long battle with NASCARofficials over the ruling about the cars C post,wont be returning to the race track. Johnson crashed the car during the race,and rather than repair it and risk another run-inwith NASCAR,Hendrick gave the car to hisdriver Dale Earnhardt Jr.,who plans to add itto the collection of crashed cars that he keepson his North Carolina property.Repairs complete at DaytonaThe operations team at Daytona International Speedway put the finishing touch-es on Turn 3 last week,painting the yellowlines on the repaved area affected by the jetdryer incident during the 2012 Daytona 500.

Commission releasesL ike a baseball player stretching muscles and practicing skills during spring training, the gopher tortoise is emerging from winter dormancy and moving slowly and steadily through the landscape in search of greenery to eat and a new place to dig its burrow. Look for gopher tortoises distinctive domed brown shells and stumpy legs, as these land-dwellers make their way through Floridas open canopy forests and sandy areas. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission asks people to remember that gopher tortoises are good neighbors, so leave them and their burrows alone. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission works with, and is grateful to, the homeowners, landowners, businesses and public agencies willing to share their lands with gopher tortoises and their burrows, said Deborah Burr, the FWCs gopher tortoise plan coordinator. This state has made progress in reversing the decline of gopher tortoises by providing direction to developers, including re-locating tortoises, if necessary, and giving help to people interested in making room for tortoises. Floridas first Gopher Tortoise Management Plan was adopted by the FWC in 2007 and is being updated this year as scheduled. More than 50 individuals and stakeholders already have made suggestions on improving the 2007 plan, and proposed draft revisions to the plan are available online at the GTTAG SharePoint site for review and comment. To comment, go to MyFWC. com /GopherTortoise and click on the Management Plan link. Since the Gopher Tortoise Management Plan took effect in 2007, an annual average of 36,000 acres of gopher tortoise habitat has been restored and managed; protected tortoise habitat expanded by more than 6,500 acres; and more than 4,000 gopher tortoises were humanely relocated from development sites. In addition to changes in Floridas economy, the needs of the gopher tortoise have changed since the plan was first approved in 2007, Burr said. The proposed revisions to the plan include new actions that the FWC and our partners can implement together to improve the status of the species, and help secure viable populations well into the future. She added, There will be public-comment opportunities through July on each improved draft of the plan. In Florida, it is illegal to harm gopher tortoises or their extensive burrows, which provide shelter to more than 350 other native species. Generally, the only time people should pick up and move a gopher tortoise is to help it get across a road. Remember, though, not to put the tortoise in your car. Do point the tortoise in the same direction it was going when you picked it up, but never put it in the water because it is a land animal. The best long-term protection for this state-threatened species is the people who are aware of gopher tortoises needs and happy to share their lawns and lands with the tortoise that can live to 40 to 60 years in the wild.FWC moves forward on plan to manage black bearsThe FWC is moving ahead on its plan to manage and conserve Florida black bears so they are never again at risk of extinction. With the bear population rebounding from about 300 to 3,000 over the past 40 years, the FWC recognizes Floridas conservation success with bears and recommends the states largest land mammal be removed from the threatened species list. The Commissioners discussed the draft Florida Black Bear Management Plan, a proposed black bear conservation rule, and heard public comments and suggestions at a Feb. 9 meeting. The Commissioners are scheduled to take up a revision of the draft plan and the rule during their June meeting. Pointing out a paragraph in the draft bear plan tracking the fall and rise of Floridas bear population, Commissioner Brian Yablonski said, We had 750,000 people in Florida in 1914 and we had roughly 3,000 bears, and here we are at the last data point in 2002 and weve got 17 million people in 2002 and about 3,000 bears. Thats an amazing success story. I think this is a very positive day. The draft bear management plan, released on Nov. 10, 2011, was followed by a two-month period of public input, which included public workshops in Bristol, Naples, DeLand and Gainesville. Floridians offered feedback at the workshops, online where the draft plan was posted at MyFWC.com /Bear, and by mailing written comments. About 2,500 comments were received from private citizens and stakeholder groups on the draft plan. People had the opportunity to speak on Feb. 9. The public commented on issues such as updating bear population estimates, reducing human-bear conflicts and continuing the review of land-use changes impacting bear habitat. Members of the public also expressed opinions on whether to allow bear hunting in Florida and whether taking bears off the states threatened species list would impact bear conservation. FWC staff is recommending following many of the publics suggestions to the overall plan. 4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 13-14, 2012 FRIDAY EVENING APRIL 13, 2012 Comcast Dish DirecTV 6 PM6:307 PM7:308 PM8:309 PM9:3010 PM10:3011 PM11:30 3-ABC 3 -TV20 NewsABC World NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Shark Tank (N) (:01) Primetime: What Would You Do?20/20 (N) News at 11(:35) Nightline (N) 4-IND 4 4 4Chann 4 NewsChann 4 NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Love-RaymondKing of QueensBig Bang TheoryBig Bang TheoryThe 10 OClock News (N) Chann 4 News(:35) The Insider 5-PBS 5 -World NewsNightly BusinessPBS NewsHour (N) Washington WeekNeed to Know (N) Art in the Twenty-First CenturyThe Titanic With Len Goodman BBC World NewsTavis Smiley 7-CBS 7 47 47Action News JaxCBS Evening NewsJudge Judy Two and Half MenUndercover Boss Budget Blinds (N) ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends -In Concert (N) Action News JaxLetterman 9-CW 9 17 17Meet the BrownsMeet the BrownsHouse of PayneSharks FootballNikita Alex makes an announcement.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 13-14, 2012 5B UGA: Spring Saturday Continued From Page 1Bthe fall. Bobo said Murray, who set a school record with 35 TD passes last season, may play only one quar-ter. Hutson Mason will play behind Murray. Christian LeMay is the probable starting quarter-back for the Black team. Bobo said some quarter-backs may play on both teams. Everyone cares because there are a lot of guys out there playing for jobs, Mason said. Georgia plans to hold out Mason as a redshirt this season. LeMay could move up as Murrays top backup. Bobo said Mason, a junior, has not practiced as if he doesnt plan to play in 2012. From day one hes been competing his tail off like he wants to be the starter, and thats the only way hes going to get better, said Bobo of Mason. He has done that from the first day of spring. Day in and day out, hes trying to say Im the best guy on this team and thats the only way hes going to get better. Georgia lost center Ben Jones and tackles Cordy Glenn and Justin Anderson from last years 10-4 team. Offensive line coach Will Friend has tried different combinations this spring. He said his current starting five includes tackles Kolton Houston and Kenarious Gates, guards Chris Burnette and Dallas Lee and center David Andrews. Houston opened spring practice as a guard. Watts Dantzler and Austin Long were other options at right tackle before Houstons move. King said the line is coming together so much, its pretty amazing. The first couple of days our big D-line was just blow-ing them off the ball and just moving them around, King said. Now we kind of see our guys learning from that and not making the same mistakes. It looks great. Players who have been suspended for the start of the season will be available to play on Saturday. Cornerback Sanders Commings was suspended by coach Mark Richt for two games following an arrest on a domestic abuse charge. The other starting corner, Branden Smith, is facing at least a one-game suspension for his arrest on possession of marijuana. All-America free safety Bacarri Rambo also could face a marijuana-related suspension. Alan Ingram, Rambos coach at Seminole County High School in Donalsonville, Ga., said last month Rambo inadver-tently ate marijuana-laced brownies on a spring break trip to Florida and will be suspended for the first four games. Georgia has not issued a statement on Rambos sta-tus. Strong safety Shawn Williams left a scrimmage last week with a knee injury but is not expected to need surgery. Bobo said Tuesday freshman tailback Keith Marshall may miss Saturdays game with a hamstring injury. Bobo had positive reviews for sophomore tailbacks Crowell and Ken Malcome. Crowell was the SEC Freshman of the Year after he ran for 850 yards despite missing two games. A failed drug test resulted in a one-game suspension. Isaiah has practiced well every day, Bobo said. He continued to get bet-ter, becoming more consis-tent and more dependable, somebody that you can depend on. I think that has been his goal. Hes really done a nice job. He knows his assignments a lot bet-ter. Bobo said Malcome is playing with more confi-dence. He has always been a physical looking guy who has played kind of timid, not really knowing what to do and unsure of himself, Bobo said. But last year I think the confidence he got playing at the end of the season has helped him in the spring. Im really pleased with his progress and his attitude. Malcolm Mitchell, one of the teams top receivers as a freshman last season, has moved to cornerback this spring and may be held out on Saturday with a ham-string injury. Petrino, mistress exchanged hundreds of calls, textsBy KURT VOIGTAssociated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino and his mistress exchanged more than 4,300 text messag-es and nearly 300 phone calls over the past seven months on game days, before dawn and even as the police report that has-tened his downfall was being released to the pub-lic, according to a review of his business cellphone records by The Associated Press. The messages, among some 300 pages of records released under a Freedom of Information Act request, appear to include picture and video files, though there was no way to ver-ify the content. But the records clearly show a married father of four in frequent contact with Jessica Dorrell, a 25-year-old former Razorbacks vol-leyball player. Petrino was fired Tuesday night for failing to disclose his relation-ship with Dorrell, whom he hired last month with-out disclosing his conflict of interest or the fact he had once paid her $20,000. Athletic director Jeff Long said he had determined their relationship had been ongoing for a significant amount of time, but he did not say for how long. The phone records show that Petrino remained in close contact with Dorrell following the April 1 motor-cycle accident in which Petrino suffered four bro-ken ribs, a cracked neck vertebra and scrapes and bruises. That day, Petrino and Dorrell went for a motor-cycle ride on a two-lane highway southeast of Fayetteville and skidded off the road. Petrino and Dorrell talked for 16 min-utes earlier that day before the crash at 6:45 p.m., and they also had a 22-minute conversation the following day while Petrino was apparently still in the hos-pital recovering. Petrinos accident report was disclosed by state police on April 5, and the two talked 11 times that day. That included a pair of 2-minute calls around 3:30 p.m., when police were releasing the report that for the first time exposed her presence at the acci-dent. Later that evening, as questions swirled about his future at Arkansas, Petrino exchanged four calls with his agent, Russ Campbell, totaling 10 minutes. The cellphone records show Petrino and Dorrell were in contact at least as far back as Sept. 12. The university provided nearly seven months of Petrinos business cell-phone records, and that is the first date listed. Among the findings: Petrino exchanged 91 texts with Dorrell on Sept. 13 and 84 texts with her over five hours on Oct. 28, the day before a game at Vanderbilt. On Oct. 17, the two swapped 73 text mes-sages, and on four days in a row in the week before a loss to eventual national champion Alabama, Petrino called Dorrell early -at 5:52 a.m., 6:35 a.m., 5:49 a.m. and 7:55 a.m. The day Arkansas beat Troy, the two exchanged 70 texts. They exchanged 26 texts the day Arkansas beat Mississippi State and four following the Razorbacks loss to LSU on Nov. 25. Dorrell sent Petrino a text during Arkansas Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State, though the coach didnt reply until the following day. The 51-year-old Petrino was earning an aver-age annual salary of $3.5 million and he had built Arkansas into a national power, including a 21-5 record over the past two seasons and a No. 5 rank-ing in last seasons final AP poll. He was expected to lead the Hogs on a national title run next season, but his career was effectively ended the day of the acci-dent. Petrino didnt disclose Dorrells presence on the ride to Long until 20 minutes before the police report was released to the public. The records show Petrinos six-minute call to Long at 3:11 p.m., during which the coach first told Long of his inappropriate relationship with Dorrell and her presence at the accident. He was on the phone with her a few min-utes later. Petrino has issued a lengthy apology and said he was focused on trying to make amends to his fam-ily. Long, meanwhile, is now a full day into his search for a new coach. Late Wednesday, he tweeted: At this time I have not spo-ken to anyone about the Head Coaching position. Former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett, now with the New England Patriots, tweeted his sup-port for Garrick McGee. The former Razorbacks offensive coordinator was hired as the head coach at UAB in December after four years in Fayetteville. GM only coach Ark should look at if they wanna win now, Mallett wrote. Im talkin about Garrick McGee. He can win at Arkansas. Mallett made clear he was not referring to Gus Malzahn, the former offensive coordinator at Arkansas, Tulsa and Auburn who took the head coaching job at Arkansas State in December. That would be a mistake, Mallett tweeted.

The Saints had to find a one-season replacement for head coach Sean Payton, whose season-long suspen-sion in connection with the bounty scandal begins Monday and runs through the next Februarys Super Bowl. New Orleans general manager Mickey Loomis said in the release Thursday that Vitt will take over on Monday. It is important that we keep Sean Paytons philoso-phy front and center during this season, Loomis said Thursday. Sean has been the driving force behind the tremendous success our team has enjoyed dur-ing the past six years, his leadership will be missed. But we need to set a course of action that gives us the best chance to win this season without our head coach. ... We con-sidered a number of great options to handle Paytons duties both internally and externally, but believe this will provide the most seam-less transition for our play-ers and our coaching staff, allowing our offensive and defensive staffs to remain intact with the fewest changes. This is the same structure we used last season during Seans knee injury. Vitt, who carries the titles of assistant head coach and linebackers coach, briefly stepped in as interim head coach last season when Payton broke his leg. Vitt also was interim coach with St. Louis in 2005 before joining Payton in his first season with New Orleans in 2006. Vitt will be able to oversee the offseason training program and training camp, before stepping aside for the first third of the regular season. The NFL played no role in the decision-making pro-cess. Its the Saints decision, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, adding the team did not have to get approval from the league to make Vitt the interim coach. The Saints did not say what their plans will be dur-ing Vitts six-game suspen-sion. We will work through the offseason under this plan and when we get to training camp we will decide on a course of action for the first six weeks of the season, while Joe Vitt is unavailable, Loomis said. We are fortunate to have a great veteran coaching staff well equipped to han-dle this challenge. Joe and Sean have worked closely together to build our pro-gram, one of the most suc-cessful in the NFL in the past six years, and I have the fullest confidence that Joe will continue that suc-cess that Sean has brought us. The Saints assistants who can pick up the slack dur-ing Vitts absence include: offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, offensive line coach Aaron Kromer and new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Q Carmichael, who also joined the Saints in 2006, began calling plays after Paytons injury last season. Payton allowed Carmichael to continue calling plays through the final 10 regular season games of 2011 as the Saints went 9-1 and broke numerous NFL offensive records. Q Kromer, who also oversees the running game, will be entering his fifth season in New Orleans and like Carmichael has been men-tioned as an up-and-coming head coaching candidate around the NFL. Q Spagnuolo, who was a head coach in St. Louis the past three seasons and defensive coordinator for the New York Giants 2007-08 Super Bowl winning team. The decision gives Saints players a measure of cer-tainty and direction as Mondays first day of the offseason training program approaches. Still looming, however, are possible punishments for between 22 and 27 cur-rent and former Saints defenders that the NFL says participated in the crunch-for-cash bounty sys-tem that disgraced former Saints defensive coordinator has apologized for run-ning for the previous three seasons. The leagues investigation found that Williams bounty system offered off-the-books cash payments of $1,500 for knockouts, in which an opposing play-er was knocked out of a game, or $1,000 for cart-offs, in which an opponent needed help off the field. The league has said the bounty pool grew as large as $50,000. The investigation also found that Payton ini-tially lied about the exis-tence of a bounty pro-gram and instructed his defensive assistants to do the same. Loomis received an eightgame suspension for failing to ensure the program was stopped after the NFL first asked him to do so in early 2010. The franchise, meanwhile, was fined $500,000 and docked second-round draft choices this year and next, although NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said he may lessen the 2013 penalty by modifying which pick the Saints lose if the club coop-erates with the NFLs ongo-ing probe. Williams, who was hired as defensive coordinator in St. Louis after last sea-son, has been suspended indefinitely. His penalty will be up for review after next season. ASSOCIATED PRESSNew Orleans Saints assistant coach Joe Vitt arrives for a meeting at NFL headquarters in New York on April 5. Vitt w as named the Saints interim head coach on Thursday.
6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 13-14, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 16 years and have two teenagers. Mom died two years ago, and my husband is an only child. How can we tell my widowed father-in-law that we need a weekend to ourselves? Pop, whos 87, lives an hour away and drives to see us every weekend, stay-ing until Monday afternoon. We dont doubt that hes lonely, although he does play bridge twice a week and has dinner with friends occasionally. We love him dearly and would never want to hurt his feelings, but we long for a weekend for just us. How do we ask Pop not to visit? We believe hes still in mourning over the loss of his wife of 60 years. We dont want to add to his heart-ache. -TORN IN TEXAS DEAR TORN: You do need to talk to your father-in-law and set some boundaries. Accomplish it by set-ting a predetermined visitation schedule that allows you time alone with your hus-band and nuclear fam-ily without him being present. A way to get that message across would be to say: Pop, we love you, but we need some time to ourselves, so lets schedule your visits for twice a month. YOU pick the week-ends. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: The neighbor above my apartment has a snor-ing problem. My bedroom is directly below his. Around 10 every night he starts snoring to the point that it sounds like an elephant lives above me. I have to sleep with my TV on and sometimes the radio. Please tell me what to do. Should I con-front this neighbor? Should I complain to management? Or should I just live with it? -FED UP IN NEW JERSEY DEAR FED UP: Write your neighbor a letter and explain to him there is a prob-lem. He may not know that he snores. If hes snoring steadily, but stops for 20 or 30 sec-onds before starting again, it could indicate that he has a serious medical condition that should be discussed with his doctor. If the apartment above you has poor insulation, a carpet under his bed could muffle some of the sound. Playing a tape of white noise could block it out more restfully than your television or radio. Or, because adequate sleep is so important, you could ask a real estate attorney about the possibility of breaking your lease and leaving without penalty. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am a 23-year-old woman who will graduate from college soon. I am looking to undergo a post-college make-over. I want to find some clothes that will work in the profes-sional world, but also mix for more casual environments. Taking a recent college grads budget for this into account, what signa-ture pieces should a young female have in her wardrobe? And what tips do you have for building a great collection over time? -YOUNG, BROKE, BUT FABULOUS DEAR Y.B.F.: Start with two suits -one with a jacket and matching skirt, the other with jacket and slacks. Make both suits interchangeable and in a neutral color -black, navy or beige -whatever looks best on you. Add a couple of blouses and sweater sets, several pairs of shoes and a good handbag. Make sure to look for clas-sic styles rather than trendy, and you will have the basis for a business wardrobe and the beginning of a great collection. ** ** **Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her moth-er, Pauline Phillips.

The Bobby Petrino saga has left unsavory trails of deceit, including a troubling perception about th e relationship between coaches and the police who handle security for them around the Southe astern Conference a region where college football reigns supreme. When Petrino wre cked his motorcycle in the hills outside of Fayetteville on April 1, the person he trusted mo st to handle the immediate aftermath was Arkansas State Police Captain Lance King, wh o provided security for the team at Razorback games.SEC football programs, law officers have long historyBy DAVID BRANDTAssociated PressThe Bobby Petrino saga has drawn attention to an often overlooked aspect of big-time college football: The relationship between coaches and the police who handle security for them. Around the Southeastern Conference, providing side-line security for SEC pro-grams is considered cov-eted duty. Some officers travel to away games, a cost paid for mostly by the schools. In can range from volunteer duty to part of the officers regular schedule. Arkansas State Police Captain Lance King, who provided security for Petrino at Razorback games, got the call from the coach when he wrecked his motorcycle. King was cleared of any wrongdoing and its not unusual for marquee col-lege coaches to have at least a causal relationship with the law enforcement officials who work closely with the program. We consider it an honor because college football is such a public part of life in the south, said Mississippi Highway Patrol Maj. Billy Mayes, a 31-year veteran of the MHP who graduated from Ole Miss in 1981. But from my point of view, the relationship is strictly busi-ness. Some coaches are more personable than oth-ers. Ed Orgeron didnt talk to us much. Houston Nutt did. In the Petrino case, the coach felt comfortable enough to with King to have the officer handle the crucial minutes following the crash. Since the incident, Petrino has been fired with cause in the wake of explo-sive details of the crash and attempted cover-up, including lying about details of the accident, infidelity and workplace favoritism. Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long found that the coach made a conscious decision to mislead the university in the aftermath of the crash, including that 25-year-old Jessica Dorrell was on the motorcycle with him during the accident. Longs role in that aftermath was examined by the Arkansas State Police, but the department conclud-ed he did not violate any State Police policy or state laws. At LSU, the state police escort began back in the late 1970s when Jerry Stovall was coach, accord-ing to State Police Capt. Doug Cain. The trooper for current LSU coach Les Miles is Sgt. Bryan Madden, who has handled the assignment since 2008 was an LSU player.
