Diminished winds mean blaze is 60percent contained.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe County Line fire, having burned approxi mately 34,936 acres, is now 60 percent contained, offi cials said Saturday. Regardless, foresters still have concerns about the fire. Were in the mopup mode trying to rein force the lines, said John Bearer, Southern Area Type 2 Incident Management Team public information officer for the U.S. Forest Service. Were paying special attention to standing trees that may have their roots burned off and are ready to fall over, were worried about stump holes, a hole filled with hot embers and that could also restart the fire. Were also worried about wildlife in new areas look ing for water. Operations are now focused on cleaning up unburned fuels on the inside of the control lines. Officials said the initial goal was to have a 50-foot wide fuel-free zone on the inside of the control lines and eventually expand the zone to 200 feet. Primarily because the winds had died down, fire activity continued to be mostly in the inte rior portions of the fire, said Bonnie Strawser, a Southern Area Type 2 Incident Management Team public informa tion officer, in a prepared statement. This allowed firefighters to focus their efforts on strengthening and widening the contain ment lines. Smoke is expected to drift to the northwest through today.

Lake City ReporterSUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.00 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM 1C 1D SUNDAYEDITION TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterLuke Smith plays catch with his mother Meagan Smith Satur day during the March of Dimes annual March for Babies fundraiser. Teams raised more than $100,000 during this yea rs event. On the March $100K raised during this years March of Dimes event here.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLuke Smith snacked on an ani mal cracker and played catch with his parents, Lucas and Megan Smith, as hundreds of walkers and runners made their way down Marion Avenue during the March of Dimes Walk For Babies Saturday. Luke was on Ambassador Avenue, an area walk organizers set up for the events ambassadors children who were helped by the March of Dimes. When Luke was born his parents were told he was healthy, but after his first six hours, he started turning blue and was having trouble breathing. He was taken to the special care nursery were they discovered he was having distress and having trouble breathing, Meagan Smith said. Luke was sent to Shands at the University of Florida Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where he spent 10 days where he was diagnosed with a form of congenital heart disease called Ebsteins Anomaly. The March of Dimes really was great at that time just providing fam-ily support, Smith said. Now he is perfectly healthy. He still have heart disease, but we see a cardiologist regularly and hes doing very well. Hes doing really well for what he has so were really happy. Luke is now 18 months old and was one of several guests of honor during Saturdays March of Dimes fundraiser, where hundreds of people filled Olustee Park in an effort to raise money for children born with a vari-ety of illnesses. Organizers said Saturdays event rivaled the record for attendance in the annual fundraiser. This is an outstanding march for babies. This year we have well over 500 walkers, said Betsy Trent, March of Dimes executive director. In addition to the outstanding turnout, Trent said the teams raised over $100,000. This is the most Lake City has raised in over five years with the most number of walkers, she said. Were just excited for the outstand-ing support that Lake City, Live Oak, Columbia, Suwannee County and Hamilton County have come out today to help save babies. Walk chairs for the 2012 March for Babies were Dr. Chuck Hall, president of Florida Gateway College and his wife, Dr. Robin Hall, president of St. Leo University on the FGC campus. They raised over $12,000 and its the first year FGC has participated as an official team, Trent said. We really appreciate the leadership that the Halls gave to the overall March for Babies in Suwannee Valley as well as the leadership they gave to FGC. Smith said she was happy so many people decided to participate in Saturdays fundraiser.

Sports Foundationestimate turnedout conservativeBY HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.orgThe Florida Sports Foundation has confirmed the Tourism Development Councils economic impact report was based on very conservative assumptions concerning the effect of sports tourism on the local economy. Their support echoed TDC director Harvey Campbells earlier report that $5.5 million was a conservative estimate of the economic impact of direct spending from sports tourism in 2011. County commissioner Rusty DePratter had ques-tioned Campbells estimate saying, Harveys report waters it all down. The Florida Sports Foundation investigated the factors contributing to the economic effect of Columbia Countys sports industry such as the key venues, current inventory and TDC staff. It also conducted an analysis of the current calculations of economic impact generated through sport tourism. The foundation said there was room for improvement in tracking economic data, saying, Though the use of Florida Sports economic impact calculators are correct, there are assumptions made that could be better quantified in the future. The report suggested formalizing the processes that track the economic climate of the industry to improve the validity of assumptions made by the data. In other words, do SPORTS continued on 3A Stand Your Ground under major scrutinyLaw not a factor in 2011 shooting here, says state attorney.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comGeorge Zimmerman, the 28-year-old community watch captain who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in late February, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder. Zimmerman, a neigh borhood watch volunteer in Sanford, told police he shot 17-year-old Martin after Martin punched him in the nose, knocked him down and repeatedly slammed his head against a sidewalk. For weeks Zimmerman was not arrested or charged in the shoot ing. Many legal experts cited Floridas Stand Your Ground law as a reason Zimmerman had not been charged in the case. The Stand Your Ground law has come under fire with Martin case and some are questioning the valid-ity of the law. Stand Your Ground was born of Floridas Castle Doctrine. Under the Castle Doctrine, when an inhabit-ant of a home is threatened with death or great bodily harm, there is no duty to retreat. The person can resort to force, including deadly force, if reasonable, to protect himself or some-one else in that home. The Castle Doctrine applied in the home, but out on the street there had been a duty to retreat to safety, if possible. The law didnt say you could not use force to pro-tect yourself out on the street, said Skip Jarvis, Third Circuit State attor-ney. It simply said if you could retreat, you were required to do so before resorting to deadly force. Floridas Stand Your Ground law and simiar statutes in 24 other states states a person need not retreat, and may take the fight to the aggressor. The state attorneys, as a group, opposed the passage of the Stand Your Ground Law because they feared exactly what the argument is today, Jarvis said. The argument today is the Stand Your Ground law is being used to allow people who go to far to provide them with a defense, even though they go beyond whats reason-able. Last year a Columbia County shooting on Parnell Road brought some of these questions into play. During that incident, a father and his daughter were shot multiple times after someone in their party pulled a shotgun and threatened the other party, who had a rifle in his truck. The shooter in the incident was not charged. We declined prosecu tion in that case and prob-ably would have declined prosecution in that case even without having the Stand Your Ground law, Jarvis said. The shooting took place on a public road. However, one of those wounded told the Lake City Reporter the shooter only fired after pull-ing into the other partys driveway sometime after SCRUTINY continued on 3A

Singer Samantha Fox is 46. Actor-writer Seth Rogen is 30. Actress Emma Watson is 22.PEOPLE IN THE NEWS LONDON Former Bee Gee Robin Gibb is in a coma after contracting pneumonia, a statement on his official website said Saturday. The statement, which confirmed media reports that the singer was gravely ill, said we are all hoping and praying that he will pull through. The Press Association news agency reported that family members including wife Dwina and brother Barry were at Gibbs bedside in a London hospital. Gibbs publicist, Doug Wright, declined to comment, but Gibbs son has acknowledged that the 62-yearold musician is seriously ill in a hospital. Gibb was hospitalized last year for stomach and colon problems. He has not specified the exact nature of his illness widely reported to be cancer but told the BBC he had a growth on his colon that was removed. He said earlier this year that he was making a good recovery, but had intestinal surgery last month and was forced to miss the London premiere of his classical Titanic Requiem this week because of illness. His son Robin-John Gibb said the family was praying for him and hoping he has a speedy recovery. The Bee Gees British-born, Australia-raised brothers Robin, Barry and Maurice Gibb had a string of disco-era hits including How Deep is Your Love and Stayin Alive.Rock N Roll Hall of Fame inducts newest class minus Axl RoseCLEVELAND Axl Rose may regret missing this bash. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, a musical celebration that in past years has included awkward moments, touching tributes and unforgettable performances, kicked off Saturday night in historic Public Hall where 6,000 fans, 1,400 well-heeled guests and many of musics biggest stars were set to party with the class of 2012. Hard rockers Guns N Roses headlined this years eclectic group of inductees. Others are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, folk icon Donovan, late singer-songwriter Laura Nyro and British bands the Small Faces and Faces. Rose, the Guns N Roses lead singer with an affinity for drama, skipped the event. Cleveland rocked without him. Green Day got the show started with a rousing performance. Rose, the screeching frontman and ringmaster of the G N R traveling circus of dysfunction for decades, said earlier this week that he didnt want to be part of the ceremony because it doesnt appear to be somewhere Im actually wanted or respected. Rose cited a continuing rift with his former band mates as the main reason for not attending. His decision disappointed fans and ended months of speculation about whether the original Guns N Roses lineup would unite for the first time since 1993 and perform any of their classic hits like Welcome to the Jungle or Sweet Child O Mine. Although he asked not to be inducted, the hall plans to enshrine him whether Rose likes it or not. As the ceremony approached, fans gathered on the sidewalks outside the historic venue, which hosted the Beatles in 1964, for a peek at some of rocks royalty. Alice Cooper was the fan favorite on the red carpet, signing autographs, telling printable stories and waving in response to cheers of Alice, Alice! Rod Stewart, who was to be inducted and perform with Faces, came down with the flu this week. Im absolutely devastated, Stewart said in a statement. Shattered that Im going to miss my second induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and this time alongside my mates. (AP)(The Resurrection of Christ) Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15:1, 3-4 NIV Crayon drawings inspire story about homelessnessFORT WALTON BEACH Most children know exactly where they will sleep and when their next meal will be. Kaytlind Hales life hasnt been like that. The 7-yearold has spent more years than not wondering where she will lay her head at night and if the next meal will come. But she is one of the lucky ones. Not only does she have a mother who loves her, but her family is climbing out of the clutches of poverty with a little help from friends at Opportunity Place in Fort Walton Beach. Late last month, her story and those of other children in a similar situation went public in a short book titled A Safe Place for Kaytlind. The book combines Kaytlinds simple crayon drawings with stories written by Opportunity Inc. Executive Director Lenore Wilson. Its meant to shed light on childhood homelessness and its repercussions. Homelessness happens to kids differently than it happens to parents, said Wilson, who co-founded Opportunity Inc. in 2005. What they should be learning is they have a safety net, and theyre not learning that. Theyre learning that life can change at any moment and rugs can be pulled out from under you. Kaytlind first arrived at Opportunity Place when she was 4 years old with her mother Kristen Lowery and younger sister Amelia Hale. The little girl welcomed the opportunity that her temporary home provided and instantly bonded Program Director CC Fearson. Along with her mother and sister, she began building a new life at CCs Place, as she called it. Before long, they were ready to live on their own. It went well for them for about two years. Lowery had steady work and was even able to set aside some money. Then a toothache brought all of that tumbling down. By the time it was over, Lowery had used up all her savings, lost her job and was out of options. Thats when Kaytlind reminded her about Opportunity Place. They were welcomed back in 2011 and were there for Christmas. After receiving gifts of her own, Kaytlind wanted to return the favor, so she created a book for Fearson. In the simple crayon drawings she shows a variety of memorable moments she was thankful for.Miamis Bishop Roman remembered at funeralMIAMI The first Cuban to be appointed a Roman Catholic bishop in the U.S. is being remembered at funeral services in Miami. The Archdiocese of Miami said Auxiliary Bishop Agustin Roman died Wednesday at age 83. Roman fled Cuba in 1961. He came to Miami in 1966, and he was appointed auxiliary bishop of the archdiocese in 1979. After more than a day of public viewing at the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity in Miami, Romans body was transported to the Cathedral of St. Mary for a funeral Mass celebrated by Archbishop Thomas Wenski.Small plane crashes in Florida Keys mangrovesTAVERNIER Authorities say two men aboard a small plane were able to walk to safety after crash landing into some mangroves in the Florida Keys. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Robert Dube says the single-engine plane took off Friday afternoon from a private air strip on Plantation Key. The two Tavernier men told investigators that their plane lost lift shortly after takeoff, so they turned back toward the airstrip. Dube says the plane crashed into mangroves about 50 yards from Tavernier Creek. Dube says neither man was harmed.Miami park created to ward off sex offendersMIAMI A Miami city commissioner has created a small park to prevent more sexual offenders from setting up camp in the area. City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff learned about the small patch of vacant land now called the Little River Pocket Park from homeowners concerned about a dozen sexual offenders who spend their nights on a nearby sidewalk. County and state law prohibits sex offenders from living near parks where children gather, though city officials say the state allows sex offenders already living somewhere to stay if a park is created after they move in. Sarnoff tells The Miami Herald that he created the park to prevent more sex offenders from being placed in the area.Sunbather run over by lifeguards truckFORT LAUDERDALE A North Carolina woman is recovering after a lifeguard truck ran over her on a South Florida beach. Rinda Mizelle of Charlotte, N.C., says she was sunbathing on the beach Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale when she felt the Fort Lauderdale Ocean Rescue truck rolling across her body. Mizelle tells the South Florida Sun Sentinel that she felt like a human speed bump. Police say lifeguards freed Mizelle from beneath the truck. Officials say the driver has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

Kim Lipthrott, Richardson Middle School data coach, said approximately 50-60, sixth-eighth grade students attended the sessions at least one or more Saturday. The students worked on reading skills, mathematics and science during the Saturday sessions. This was just an extra effort to help our students feel prepared, Lipthrott said. A lot of our students, just by coming to this, have said they feel more confident. The Saturday school just gives them an extra opportunity outside the regular structured classroom to go over and talk about some of the things they maybe struggling with. Teachers used the FCAT Explorer, FCAT 2.0 Testmaker and other computer programs to taylor the sessions to the students particular needs. Richardson Middle School reading coach Susan Williams organized the Saturday school program, which had seven teachers attend each Saturday and total of 13 teachers that volunteered their time on other Saturdays. Students attended the Saturday school program from 9 a.m. noon during the sessions. TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterLucy Smith works with sixth grade Richardson Middle School students Saturday as the students prepare to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test next week.Diva Day is coming April 28Altrusa International of Lake City will present Diva Day on April 28 at the banquet facilities at the Columbia County Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Its a fun time to come out with your mom, sisters, daughters or friends.

That turned out not to be true, according to police. Jarvis said what is or is not justifiable is detrmined by the facts of each case. In the Parnell Road shooting, the man who fired the shots was not the one who introduced the weapon into the altercation. Because the other side produced the shotgun the shooters response was legally justified. He was acting in self-defense, Jarvis said. Florida law has always allowed selfdefense. Jarvis said state officials are looking closely at the Stand Your Ground law and considering changes. I dont know whats going to happen with it because when you apply the facts of one case to any law, you can always find exceptions to where the law is good or the law is bad, he said. In this case the state attorneys have asked the legislature to look at this to see if maybe the law needs to be amended, repealed or tweaked. Were simply saying we have a situation here where this is being used more and more in defenses on shootings and homicides. The law was sufficient before it was passed to protect someone who was acting in self defense. The law just makes it harder for prosecutors to go forward on cases like these. A legislative task force is now taking a look at Stand Your Ground. In addition, activist groups nationwide have vowed to keep up the pressure on state legislatures to repeal or revise the law. What we need is some clarification of the law, Jarvis a better job determining whether guests at a local hotel are here for a sports tournament or for other reasons. DePratter was contacted for this article but would not comment because he had not yet read the sports foundations report. The foundation also confirmed that Columbia County is a viable area for sports tourism, with accessibility being a major advantage for the area. The analysis suggested that improving sports facilities, developing more lodging options and investing in a sports tourism staff person would help bolster sports tourism in the area. The Florida Sports Foundation determined that Columbia County is eligible to be a Florida Sports Industry Partner, a membership which provides accessibility to events and programs sponsored by the organization. Campbell said the TDC has decided to join the Florida Sports Foundation, saying the foundation would benefit the council because they are willing to share their knowledge. According to Campbell, the TDC will be hiring Mark Bonn, a professor of economics from Florida State University, to help the council refine their impact numbers and to create a template to determine their return on investment. The Florida Sports Foundation is a private, notfor-profit corporation that serves as the states lead organization in promoting and developing Floridas Sports Industry, according to its website.SCRUTINY: Stand Your Ground testedContinued From Page 1Asaid. As prosecutors we said there were sufficient laws on the books before the Stand Your Ground law was passed where we could make these decisions, review the facts and if we did not, close it out or find a jury that could consider the facts to decide whether the defendant acted reasonably. If he did not the jury could just throw that whole defense out and go forward on the criminal case. In regard to the Martin case, Jarvis said the authorities and prosecutors were trying to make sure they had all the facts and everything together before Zimmermans arrest was made. However, he said he was uncertain whether the Stand Your Ground law is a viable defense in this case. I dont have enough information and cannot make a comment solely on what Ive heard in the press, he said. I have no opinion. My opinion is that Angela Corey (special prosecutor) has a very controversial case. She will do a fantastic job with it and I have all the confidence in the world. I know her personally and she is a very aggressive prosecutor and Im going to leave it up to Ms. Corey and her staff as to decide whats going to happen in the case. Military: Curfew violations madeAssociated PressMIAMI Five U.S. service members were confined to quarters after violating curfew at the same Colombian hotel where Secret Service agents are accused of misconduct, military authorities said Saturday. The service members also may have been involved in inappropriate conduct at the hotel in Cartagena, Colombia, according to Miami-based U.S. Southern Command. The command said the service members were isolated in their quarters in Colombia and would return to the U.S. at the end of the Summit of the Americas. The service members were assigned various roles to work with the Defense Department and the Secret Service to support U.S. government security at the summit before President Barack Obamas arrival there, said Col. Scott Malcom, chief of public affairs for Southern Command. Air Force Gen. Douglas Fraser, the commander of Southern Command, said any punishment would follow an investigation. Fraser also said he was disappointed by the entire incident and that their behavior is not in keeping with the professional standards expected of members of the United States military.
P erhaps its spring fever. There certainly seem to be a lot of silly comments com-ing out of the mouths of pols these days. And that is even after Rick Santorum left the presidential race. A Democratic strategist named Hilary Rosen, who does not work directly for the party or the Obama campaign, said Ann Romney was not qualified to speak for women because she never worked a day in her life. Oops. Mrs. Romney reared five sons and assures everyone it was real work. As any mother knows. What Rosen probably meant to say was that since the Romneys are incredibly wealthy, the can didates wife didnt have to work outside the home(s) for pay or worry about family finances. The Rosen gaffe came as the Romney campaign began to real ize that Mitt Romneys gender gap with women might be his big gest hurdle right now. A poll by ABC News and The Washington Post a few days ago found Obama leading Romney with women vot ers by 57 to 38 percent. Romney addressed this by say ing he understands the problems of women because his wife talks to them and tells him what they say. (He needs a go-between for female voters?) Since Ann Romney is very popular and since she has had struggles in life as everyone does, Democrats immediately dis missed the Rosen gaffe as unfor tunate, unsanctioned, ridiculous and untrue. Even after the Rosen episode, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina emailed supporters that Mitt Romney is the most radi cally anti-women of any candidate in a generation. Really? Romney has taken to charging that under Obama, 92.3 percent of the jobs lost belonged to women. But he fails to mention that is because men lost 3.3 million jobs, mostly in manufacturing and construction, when the recession first began in 2007 while women lost 1.2 million. As state and local governments cut jobs for nurses, office administrators and teachers, more women than men have been laid off. In the last 10 months, both men and women have been going back to work although more women than men have been returning to school. We thought wed miss Santorums daily rants. But maybe not. S ometimes a rare flash of honesty makes all the difference in politics. Democratic operative Hilary Rosen single-handedly changed the course of the 2012 election with her dig at Ann Romney, wife of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Guess what, [she] has actually never worked a day in her life, Ms. Rosen said. Mrs. Romney shot back, I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work. In that instant, the political nar-rative shifted from the phony war on women to the liberal war on moms. Ms. Rosens intemperate words disrupted what had been a carefully managed campaign to drive a wedge between female voters and Republicans. The men of the Obama campaign tweeted disapproval in an attempt to dis tance their candidate from Ms. Rosen. Though Ms. Rosen would not quickly apologize as ordered, she did deign to say, I love stay-at-home moms, and I have nothing against them. The only thing missing was, Some of my best friends are moms. Ms. Rosen reflects the oldschool liberal contempt for women who choose to raise families rather than enter the workforce. Her condescension hearkens back at least to the Carter era, but the country has since moved on. Twenty-first-century Americans are comfort able with the idea that there are many paths available to women, many routes to success and personal fulfillment. Some women work full careers, with or without children. Others take time off from their professions to raise children. Some answer the calling of full-time mother hood and devote their energies to their families and communi ties, engaging in volunteer work and expressing virtues that the country could use more of. Any of these paths is a valid personal choice, but to liberals, the stay-at-home mom is somehow less of a woman. To them, the word housewife is synonymous with loser. Those like President Obama who speak of the luxury of having a stay-at-home spouse are oblivious to the element of sacrifice involved. Most American families need a sec ond income just to pay for the rising cost of living and escalat ing taxes. In families with one paycheck, life is even harder, but it reflects personal choices made by both spouses. As all parents know, going into the office can be a relief compared to the grueling work involved in caring for the needs of a small child. In the Romneys case, multiply that by five. There is an odd echo of the 1992 presidential race, when Hillary Rodham Clinton scoffed that she could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas instead of pursuing her legal career. This is the lefts stereotype of stay-at-home moms that Ms. Rosen would like to perpetuate the house wife as pampered pet. She sees women with no responsibilities, no insight into life outside their homes and no legitimate role in the political process, especially not advising their husbands. Guess what; you are stuck in the bitter 1970s. This shameful attack only makes Democrats appear more desperate as November approaches. Theleftswar onmoms ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW I was doing some yard work one afternoon early this week, enjoying my new found freedom from the workplace, when an old classmate of mine called to ask me a question about our class reunion later this month. I figured Id probably better try to reach you on your cell phone in case youd already retired, he said. So, when do you retire? My last day of work was Friday, I answered, wiping dirt from my hands. So, what are you doing right now? he wanted to know. Yard work, I said.There was a long and very pregnant pause before my friend said anything else. I quickly assured Donnie that I hadnt lost my ever loving mind and that the day before, Id spent nearly the whole day fishing, decided to do a little yard work that day and that I planned to go fishing again the next. And then maybe the day after, I might do some more yard work or maybe work on my boat or something. Whats the name of that motel down at Main Beach catty-corner from the reunion headquarters motel? he want-ed to know. There was too much merry making and cel-ebrating going on at the head-quarters place last year and the walls were thin. I dont remember, I told him. But if youll wait and let me finish what Im doing here and get my pork roast off the grill, Ill go check for you. You dont have to drive down to the beach just to do that, he said. Not a problem, I said, taking off my work gloves. I could use a break anyway and it never hurts to do a beach run. And thats been pretty much the ebb and flow of my life since I pulled the plug on my job one day last week. My alarm clock has mysteriously fallen silent and morning coffee never tasted better. I told Donnie that Id even stopped calling the days of the week by their names and that the week is now an abbreviated version of its former self. My week now consists of yesterday, today, tomorrow and the next day. An event a week past or a week hence becomes one day last week or one day next week. Anything further back or further ahead is either ancient history or too futuristic for me to concern myself over. Donnie said he thought that was a great way to live. Seriously, by the time this makes print, Ill be retired just one week and already I feel 10 years younger. Something about leaving the stress of the work place will do that. If it keeps going like this, by the time Ive been retired a month, Ill feel like a kid again. I had an appointment with my cardiologist one morning this week and I decided to walk. It was a beautiful morning and I need to shed a few pounds anyway. When I told my doctor I walked to his office, a distance of a couple of miles or so, he was stoked. I thought he was going to give me a gold star before I left his office. I have to go back one day next week for my stress test and Ill probably walk again. Why? Because I can and I dont have to worry about being in a hurry or running off to work afterword. I didnt even get stressed out because my doctors waiting room was as full as Hartsfield International Airport in Atlanta and he was running behind schedule. I just sat there and read and didnt pay attention to the time until they called me. It was only then that I discovered that Id been there waiting over an hour. The nurse apologized for the wait and I said not to worry, I had nothing else to do but yard work anyway. Im sorry to sound like Im gloating here but I cant help myself. Ive been waiting for this for months. It was a long wait, full of questions and concerns and wondering if I was making the right decision or not. But now that its here, I think its probably one of the best deci sions Ive ever made. Now if the retirement checks will just start hitting the mailbox sometime soon. I have a long to do list and boredom isnt on it anywhere. Im living my life on island time, baby. Well, the fish are biting. Gotta run. Later, alligator.

B ased on the first six months of the fiscal year, the Congressional Budget Office expects the federal deficit to be $1.17 trillion, which sounds bad -and it is -but thats down from $1.3 trillion for fiscal years 2010 and 2011 and $1.4 trillion for 2009. To show how hard the reces sion hit us and how expensive the recession-fighting measures were, the 2008 deficit was only $458 billion, a number that actu ally looks good from this vantage point and one we are not liable to see again for another decade. The good news, at least in the eyes of optimists (and there still are some), is that the deficit for this year has been steadily narrowing, thanks to higher tax receipts due to an improving economy. From October through March, the first six months of the gov ernments 2012 fiscal year, tax revenues from individuals were $484.1 billion, up from $475.6 billion for the same period last year, the Treasury Department reported Wednesday. Corporate tax receipts for the same period were $84.5 billion, up from $55.1 billion. The real test of the strength of this trend will come this month, when Americans file their tax returns, typically at the last min ute. Any positive economic news is good for President Barack Obama, but theres good news politically for the rest of us. The Treasury was expected to hit its borrowing limit of almost $16.4 trillion in November or December, but the improving revenue picture pushes back that date to early in 2013. One hopes that the reckless lawmakers who nearly drove the country into default last summer to score political points -and did succeed in denting Americas credit rating -either wont be re-elected or will return severely chastened by the electorate. Rising revenues narrow deficit for now Q Scripps Howard News Service Q Washington Times OPINION Sunday, April 15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Ann McFeattersamcfeatters@nationalpress.com Q Scripps Howard columnist Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.

OBITUARIES 5A OBITS 4-15 1 4/14/12 3:25:39 PM Events around the world mark Titanic centenary ASSOCIATED PRESSSharon Lee Willing, from Tucson, Ariz., the great-granddaughter of Titanic passengers Herbert and Carrie Chaffee, boards the Azamara Journey, bound for for Halifax, Nova Scotia, for the Titanic Memorial Cruise, in New York. By JILL LAWLESS and LEFTERIS PITARAKISAssociated PressABOARD MS BALMORAL In the birthplace of the Titanic, residents were to gather for a choral requiem. In the North Atlantic, above the ships final resting place, passengers were to pray as a band strikes up a hymn and three floral wreaths are cast onto the waves. A century after the great ship went down with the loss of 1,500 lives, events around the globe are marking a tragedy that retains a titanic grip on the worlds imagination an icon of Edwardian luxury that became, in a few dark hours 100 years ago, an enduring emblem of tragedy. Helen Edwards, one of 1,309 passengers on memorial cruise aboard the liner Balmoral who have spent the past week steeped in the Titanics history and symbolism, said Saturday that the storys continuing appeal was due to its strong mixture of romance and tragedy, history and fate. (There are) all the factors that came together for the ship to be right there, then, to hit that iceberg. All the stories of the passengers who ended up on the ship, said Edwards, a 62-year-old retiree from Silver Spring, Maryland. Its just a microcosm of social history, personal histories, nautical histories. Romance is an appropriate word right up until the time of the tragedy the band playing, the clothes. And then theres the tragedy. The worlds largest and most luxurious ocean liner, Titanic was traveling from England to New York, carrying everyone from plutocrats to penniless emigrants, when it struck an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. on April 14, 1912. It sank less than three hours later, with the loss of more than 1,500 of the 2,208 passengers and crew. Aboard the Balmoral, a cruise ship taking history buffs and descendants of Titanic victims on the route of the doomed voyage, passengers and crew were to hold two memorial services at the site of the disaster, 400 miles (640 kilometers) off the coast of Newfoundland one marking the time when the ship hit the iceberg, the other the moment it sank below the waves. At 2:20 a.m. ships time on Sunday 0547 GMT or 12:47 a.m. EDT a minister was to lead prayers, floral wreaths were to be thrown into the sea and a shipboard band, which has been entertaining guests in the evenings during the cruise, was to play Nearer My God To Thee, the tune the Titanics band kept up as the vessel went down. The Rev. Huw Mosford, who will lead the prayers, said he hoped the service would be uplifting. It will bring healing, it will bring some form of closure, perhaps but I think it will also bring hope, he told the BBC. Edwards will, earlier, hold her own private act of remembrance. She is carrying the ashes of family friend Adam Lackey, a Titanic buff from Montana who died last year, and plans to scatter them at the wreck site. Passengers aboard the cruise, which left Southampton, England, on April 8, have enjoyed lectures on Titanic history, as well as the usual cruise-ship recreations of bridge, shuffleboard and lounging in a hot tub. Many have dressed in period costume for elaborate balls and a formal dinner recreating the last meal served aboard the ship. Some of the passengers have a direct link to the ship, through an ancestor who was onboard. Most feel some sort of connection to an event whose ripples have resonated for a century. Edwards said the lives of her grandparents, who married in 1911, were marked by the disaster even though they lived far away in Montana. They had talked about going back to Sweden to see his parents, and they didnt because of the Titanic, she said. Another cruise ship, Journey, left New York on Tuesday and was to join Balmoral at the site. In Belfast, Northern Ireland, where Titanic was built pride of the Harland & Wolff shipyard thousands were expected to attend a choral requiem at the Anglican St. Annes Cathedral or a nationally televised concert at the citys Waterfront Hall on Saturday. The city spent decades scarred by its link to the disaster, but has come to take pride in the feats of engineering and industry involved in building the Titanic. The memorial concert was to feature performances by Bryan Ferry and soul singer Joss Stone, as well as 100 drummers beating out a new percussion work, Titanic Drums. Actors including Kenneth Branagh, Simon Callow and Imelda Staunton were to read from contemporary accounts of the disaster. At the cathedral, the performance of composer Philip Hammonds The Requiem for the Lost Souls of the Titanic was to be followed by a torch-lit procession to the Titanic Memorial in the grounds of Belfast city hall. In the ships departure port of Southampton, an orchestra was to play composer Gavin Bryars work The Sinking of the Titanic, and a commemoration was planned in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where more than 100 victims of the tragedy are buried.

It means a lot to me, she said. March of Dimes does support research in the area of congenital heart disease and when I see all this people coming out it makes me feel like were getting somewhere and maybe one day well know why Luke has what he has and how we can prevent it in other babies. We dont want other babies to deal with this. Brooke Meng took part in the five-mile walk for babies and said she felt it was important to take part in the fundraiser. The March of Dimes is such a wonderful foundation and they do so much for finding cures and things to help premature babies and its just a passion of mine. Meng has participated in the March for Babies for at least three years and said she was happy to see other local residents join in on the effort. I think having so many people participate shows they are involved in their community and I think its great they support foundations such as the March of Dimes, she said.

Drake White to open Suwannee River Jam LIVE OAK Nashvilles Drake White and the Big Fire Band will open the 2012 Suwannee River Jam at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak on Thursday, May 3, on the 1st Street Music and Sound Company/Budweiser Party Zone Stage in the amphitheatre. Other artists performing opening night include Steve Holy and Justin Moore. White, whose posts on his web page to fans begins Hello Fello FootStompers, talks about believing in playin all night, good food, awesome dogs, the land, the Good Lord, and people!! and sets the stage for who he really is. Drake is traveling across America this year to play every dive, festival, arena, field, porch or pot-luck we can this year in the hopes that we do not have to get real Jobs. Are you getting the picture already? Go to his website at http://www. drakewhite.com to check out Drake and the band. Drake recently signed with Universal Recording, and he and the band are currently working on a CD in Nashville expected to be released anytime! Word of mouth is our advertisement and authenticity is our promise! Spread the Fire!!!!Yepaaaaa! he says, followed by a posting of Gal: 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. Drake White, whose musical style is referred to as freestyle, country, funk time, river rat and blues, is an aspiring singer/songwriter residing in Nashville. The Hokes Bluff, Ala. native has a very different country feel with a freestyle twist on many of his original songs. He ad-libs throughout a show, phrasing rhythmic lyrics as his entertaining live show unfolds. Drake frequently involves the audience in his witty craftsmanship of verbalization as well. The enthusiastic 27-year-old credits many country, blues, rock, freestyle and bluegrass influences that form his musical sound that is unique in its own way. This singer/ songwriter is highly motivated in his pursuit of creating great music and wants nothing more than to do what he loves. He says he is a God-fearing river rat and beach bum who loves the outdoors and expresses this love through his soulful lyrical exchanges that breeze through the listeners ears effortlessly. Members of his band include Matthew Burgess on drums, Samuel Damewood on fiddle, Joe Garcia on guitar, Boyd Lefan and John Player on bass and Drake. Sundy Best (thats right, its not a misspelling) will make its first appearance at the Jam. These two Kentucky boys say they are just two good ol boys trying to make it in the music world. Their music can be described as American/Folk Rock or somewhere in-between with Nick Jamerson and Kris Bentley writing much of their own music. Currently residing in Lexington, Kentucky, Sundy Best plays a gig at Redmons in Lexington every Thursday and Saturday but is currently booking dates across the US. The two have been together for two years and say some of their influences are Amos Lee, Ray Lamontagne, Avett Brothers, Folks Soul Revival and If Birds Could Fly. They will play both Friday and Saturday. Among the other artists performing at the 2012 Suwannee River Jam are Trace Adkins, Randy Travis, Joe Nichols, LoCash Cowboys, Ashton Shepherd, Josh Turner, Craig Morgan, Justin Moore, Steve Holy, Morgan Frazier, Jamie Davis and Eric Paslay.

The players and their families were honored at Senior Night on Friday. Tournament time for Lady IndiansBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The District 5-4A softball tour-nament begins Tuesday at Bradford High in Starke. It is a field with few gimmes. Fort White (11-9) earned the No. 4 seed with a reg-ular-season record of 5-5. The Lady Indians play No. 5 seed Interlachen High at 5 p.m. Tuesday. In Tuesdays late game, the host Tornadoes (No. 3 seed) play No. 6 Williston High. No. 1 Keystone Heights High and No. 2 Santa Fe High await the winners on Thursday. With a win Fort White would play Keystone Heights at 7 p.m. The cham-pionship game is 7 p.m. Friday. The Lady Indians swept Interlachen in the regular season, but it was tooth-and-nail struggles. Fort White won 2-1 at home on March 2. Despite 19 strikeouts by Cecile Gomez, it took a two-run rally in the sixth inning to Fort White enters district as No. 4 seed on Tuesday. INDIANS continued on 5BChampionship run BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Alan Espenship walks off the field foll owing the third inning against St. Augustine High on Friday. The Tigers pitcher/infielder r eturned last week after missing half the season with a shoulder injury. Espy back in the groove By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAfter going half a season without starting pitch-er Alan Espenship, the Columbia High Tigers baseball team added a wel-come return to the rotation when Espenship returned during spring break. Espenship had a partiallytorn labrum which forced him to the sideline after picking up an early-season win against Fort White High. In all, he missed more than five starts. I wanted to play, Espenship said. It sucked but I came for team sup-port. Thats just a part of it. Espenship said the injury was a nine on a scale of 1-10 in pain, but thats some-thing thats behind him. Now that Im back, I think it will boost the team, he said. Jayce (Barber) did a really good job while I was gone and (Kellan) Bailey sparks this team. But they cant do it all by them-selves. With Espenship returning to field, Tigers add depth. CHS looks to repeat as District 4-6A champs. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High has been in this position before. The Lady Tigers enter the District 4-6A tournament as defending champions, but this time they want to make sure things go different. Last time the Lady Tigers entered the tournament coming off a championship, Middleburg High shocked Columbia to knock the soft-ball team out of the play-offs. There wont be any looking passed the likely oppo-nent for Tuesdays opening game. Columbia will play the winner of No. 3 St. Augustine High and No. 6 Wolfson High with the Lady Jackets considered strong favorites. Columbia coach Jimmy Williams fully expects to play St. Augustine in the Lady Tigers first game at 5 p.m. on Tuesday in Jacksonville. Its as tough of a firstround opponent as you can get, Williams said. They have six seniors, so theyre sort of like us. They wont beat themselves and its really going to boil down to which group of seniors wants it more. The Lady Tigers have five seniors in their lineup with Michaela Burton, Taylor Douglass, Jessica Keene, Stephanie Pilkington and Payton Sund. Of course the Lady Tigers have a host of capa-ble bats down to the fresh-men on the team including sophomore sensation Kayli Kvistad. The teams leader in batting average and home runs could play a big part in the Lady Tigers district run. Shes just the ultimate hitter, Williams said. The best part is shell do any-thing for the team. Shes the kind of player that the rest of them will look up to and she works at what she does for countless hours. Shes very special. Should Columbia beat St. Augustine, the Lady Tigers would likely meet No. 1 seed Atlantic Coast on its home field for the championship game at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Atlantic Coast will face the winner of Stanton Prep and Lee High in its first round game at the conclu-sion of the Lady Tigers game on Tuesday. Of course, revenge will be a big factor for the Lady Tigers after Atlantic Coast gave Columbia (20-4, 4-1) its only regular-season district loss. Thats the motivation for us, Williams said. Its a chance for us to show that were better than what we were on that night. Were pretty much the same type of team as they are. I think where we might have a little bit of an advantage is were figuring out how to make adjustments at the plate. Williams said Atlantic Coast plays a small-ball brand while the Lady Tigers can beat teams with the long ball or by grinding it out. A starting pitcher for Atlantic Coast hasnt been determined, but Williams is turning to a senior against St. Augustine with a chance at the playoffs on the line. Douglass has the experience level, he said. Here lately, shes become a leader JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Kayli Kvistad connects with a home-run shot earlier this year. Kvistad and the rest of the Lady T igers will compete in the District 4-6A tournament at Atlantic Coast Hig h in Jacksonville beginning Tuesday. CHS continued on 5B TIGERS continued on 6B

Johnson led 156 of the 334 laps while going for owner Rick Hendricks 200th career victory. But he never recovered, even scraping hard into the wall trying to catch up after Biffle drove under him in Turn 3 and completed the pass before the start-finish line. Biffle, the season points leader, went on to win the fastest Cup race at the 1 12 -mile, high-banked Texas track. His average speed of 160.575 mph put him 3.2 seconds ahead of Johnson.

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2012 3B Petrinos mistress put on leaveBy KURT VOIGTAssociated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Arkansas put the former mistress of Bobby Petrino on paid leave Friday and disclosed that she used a $20,000 gift from the dis-graced former coach to buy a car in her first week on the job. University spokesman Steve Voorhies said Jessica Dorrell, a 25-year-old foot-ball department employee, had been placed on leave but declined further com-ment, calling it a private personnel issue. Dorrell, a former Arkansas volleyball player, was a Razorback Foundation fund-raiser before she was hired as a student-athlete develop-ment coordinator by Petrino on March 28 at an annual salary of $55,735. She has not returned repeated calls seeking comment. The move came as Petrino said he would not appeal his firing and seek any of the $18 million buyout that was part of his contract. His agent, Russ Campbell, sent an email to athletic director Jeff Long late Thursday saying Petrino had accepted responsibil-ity for the events that led to the universitys decision to terminate his contract. Coach Petrino and his family wish nothing but the best for both the Razorback football program and University of Arkansas, Campbell wrote. Petrino had the option to appeal as part of the seven-year contract he agreed to in December 2010. The contract was for more than $3.5 million annually and carried the $18 million mutual buyout clause in 2011 and 2012. The amount dropped over the life of the contract, falling to as little as $3.9 million in 2017. Long said that Petrino was fired for cause, mean-ing the coach was not owed anything. The 51-year-old Petrino was fired Tuesday for failing to disclose his relationship with Dorrell before she was hired, as required by con-flict of interest rules at the school. The affair became public only after the two went for a motorcycle ride April 1 and skidded off the road, putting Petrino in the hospital and resulting in a police report that contained her identity. Long has said the two were in a relationship for a significant amount of time and phone records show they exchanged more than 4,300 text messages and nearly 300 phone calls over the past seven months, pos-sibly including photo and video content. The termination letter Long sent to Petrino was released by the school Friday and it had more spe-cifics. (Y)ou deliberately failed to tell me that you had engaged in an extramari-tal affair with Ms. Dorrell over a period of several months leading up to your recommendation to hire her, Long wrote. If you had been forthcoming with me about the true nature of your relationship, I would not have approved the hir-ing. Long also said Petrino admitting giving $20,000 cash to Ms. Dorrell as a gift. Ms. Dorrell used the money to purchase a black Acura during the first week that she worked for the football program. Among other concerns relating to this gift, you should have disclosed this fact to me ... but you failed to do so, Long wrote. The athletic director ripped Petrino for poor judgment and said that by lying to his boss and the public he had left the school with the task of restoring the reputation of our insti-tution and our athletics pro-grams. I recognize that you are a very talented foot-ball coach, Long wrote, but the university may not disregard your conduct or sacrifice its integrity, repu-tation and principles. As for Dorrell, it is unknown whether she will face the same fate. In a March 20 letter Long sent to Dorrell offering her the job, he wrote that you should be aware that you will be held account-able for and must abide by University of Arkansas, Southeastern Conference and NCAA rules and regulations. The school, he added, expects integrity and Dorrell was asked to com-ply with conflict of inter-est policies among other things. The letter amounts to an understanding that there are no agreements, whether written or oral, regarding your employment other than those contained in this letter. The letter was signed by Dorrell. A person familiar with the situation has told the AP that Dorrell had at one time been engaged to another athletic department staffer, assistant strength and conditioning coach Josh Morgan. Voorhies said Morgan is still employed by Arkansas.

Jennifer Capriati went from teen prodigy to off-court troubles to Grand Slam champion, and now shes headed to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Capriatis election was announced Friday, joining a 2012 class that includes Gustavo Kuerten, Manuel Orantes, Randy Snow and Mike Davies. Tennis has been my passion and dedication for my entire life, and to be acknowledged for this pas-sion and dedication is truly icing on the cake, said the 36-year-old Capriati. Finally, to all of my fans: You mean so much to me. I am, and have always been, blessed beyond words by your support both during and after my playing days. You unquestionably made this game so memorable for me and I miss you all so much. With a power-based game and competitive fire, Capriati won the Australian Open in 2001 and 2002. She won the French Open in 2001 and a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics. She also reached No. 1 in the WTA rankings. We are delighted to hear the news that Jennifer has been elected to the Hall of Fame. She indeed is one of our greatest players, known for her remarkable success and powerful style of play, WTA chairman and CEO Stacey Allaster said in a statement. Jennifer worked hard and fought hard. Congratulations to her on an honor well deserved. At 14, just out of eighth grade, Capriati reached the semifinals of the first Grand Slam tournament she played the 1990 French Open. Another 11 years would pass before she would take the next step, reaching a major final. Drug and other problems sidetracked her, and Capriati temporarily dropped off the tour after the 1993 U.S. Open. She was arrested that year for shoplifting at a Florida mall, and again the next year for marijuana posses-sion. She also spent time in drug rehabilitation in 1994. After going more than two years without play-ing a competitive match, Capriati came back in April 1996. Two years later, her ranking dipped to No. 267. But she really completed her comeback and reached heights long expected of her in 2001, when she was selected as The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year. Pujols contract ($240M) dwarfs average (.222)By RONALD BLUMAssociated PressNEW YORK Albert Pujols is learning that hit-ting a baseball is tougher when the number attached to your name has a dollar sign. After a weak opening week with the Los Angeles Angels, he has a contract ($240 million) more impos-ing than his batting average (.222). He has two RBIs. Deuces wild, and not in a good way. Im a human, he said. Sometimes you want to press a little bit and try to do too much. Pujols went 1 for 4 Friday with a strikeout and a double-play grounder as the Angels lost to the Yankees 5-0 in New Yorks home opener. Hes 6 for 27 and his only RBIs have come on a groundout in a 7-3 loss to Kansas City and a single in a 6-5 defeat at Minnesota. For the first time since 2008, the three-time NL MVP is homerless in his first seven games. After splurging to sign Pujols and pitcher C.J. Wilson for $317.5 million, the Angels are 2-5 and have dropped into last in the AL West with a three-game losing streak. If this was the 17th day or the 20th day, then Id say, all right, maybe theres something going on, Torii Hunter said. But with Pujols, Im not worried. The dude works hard, tries to figure out things, and he will. More than anyone else, Alex Rodriguez knows the weight of playing with a hefty paycheck. After agree-ing to a record $252 million, 10-year contract with Texas, he began his Rangers career by hitting .242 with no homers and two RBIs in his first nine games in 2001. His first home run didnt come until his 11th game and 39th at-bat. Youre coming into a new city, big market, big expectations, with a big contract, I think overall its natural for you to try to do a little bit too much at first, Rodriguez said after homering for the Yankees and tying Ken Griffey Jr. for fifth on the career list at 630. Being the biggest star isnt enough for some. A paycheck in the 1 percent brings with along expecta-tions of a performance in the top percentile. At all times. There are going to be critics that if he doesnt hit 1.000, hes a failure, then-Texas manager Johnny Oates said of A-Rod in 2001. Hes never allowed to make an error or fall down or stub his toe. This is the life Pujols has chosen. An imposing 6-foot-3 with a shaved head and broad shoulders, he subjected himself to the heightened scrutiny when he spurned the Cardinals in December for the riches and sunny life-style of southern California. He grew up in St. Louis and became a latter-day Stan Musial, a nine-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion. St. Louis wanted him back, just not for a guaran-teed 10-year deal. Now Pujols is trying to put that old life behind. Im way past that, man. Right now, Im in a new uni-form, he said. Still, it has to weigh on his mind at least a bit. Even Pujols admits he cant avoid thinking about it. Im not going to lie to you, he went on. Yes, you miss that, because you never thought you were going to be in that situa-tion. But you know what? I have a new family right now, new teammates, and thats where my focus is, in trying to do the best that I can to help this organiza-tion. He led AL players in spring training with seven homers and an .850 slug-ging percentage. Of course, that means about as much as stats in MLB 2K12. It always seems like every time a player has a great spring, they start the season real slow. And when you struggle in spring train-ing, you break out early in the year, Pujols said. Los Angeles starters have a 5.02 ERA. Kendry Morales, back from an ankle injury that caused him to miss last season, has two fewer RBIs than Pujols which is to say, 0. This isnt about Albert, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. This about our team doing some things better on the mound and playing a little more funda-mentally sound baseball in some areas. Albert is going to be there, but we have to be more than Albert, and we are.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2012 Manuel hoping for injury-free season at FSUAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE EJ Manuel enters his final sea-son at Florida State aiming to cap an up-to-now modest career at quarterback with an injury-free season and an Atlantic Coast Conference championship. Unlike some of his contemporaries around the country, Manuel went home over his final spring break at Florida State. Oklahomas Landry Jones and Clemsons Tajh Boyd two quarterbacks instrumental in wins over the Seminoles last year spent their spring breaks on the Stanford campus working with quarterback guru George Whitfield, Jr. Manuel, though, was winding up his recupera-tion from a broken leg suffered in the Seminoles 18-14 Champs Bowl win over Notre Dame. I was a little financially disabled to be flying out to California, said the 6-5, 240-pound Manuel, who has previously worked out with other top colle-giate quarterbacks at vari-ous camps. Healing the leg and acquainting himself with a rebuilt offensive line was Manuels top priority this spring. Manuel was sacked 33 times last year and took many wicked hits trying to evade the defensive rush that all too often seemed to come through Florida States reconfigured offen-sive line. When youre not playing with the same group of guys every week, its hard, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. Manuel was Fishers marquee recruit, signing with the Seminoles in his first year as offensive coordina-tor five years ago. Fisher is heading into his third season as head coach after replacing Florida State icon Bobby Bowden. Manuel, who is pursuing a masters degree in inter-national relations, is 13-4 as a starter. Hes passed for 4,344 yards and 24 touch-downs in his Seminoles career and has been inter-cepted 18 times. A capable runner, Manuel also has rushed for 517 yards and seven touchdowns. Manuel took a lot of punishment without complaint despite a lack of a running game and playing behind an inexperienced and beat up offensive line for much of last season. The Seminoles dominated the ACC for the first dozen seasons after join-ing the league in 1992, but havent won a league crown since 2005 although they were heavy favorites to do so last year. Coordinator Mark Stoops stout defense com-bined with a strong kick-ing game salvaged a 9-4 season as Fishers offense foundered down the stretch. Florida State led the ACC in scoring defense and total defense while the offense was eighth in total yardage. Manuel played with a hurt left shoulder for much of the 2011 season and suffered a broken bone in his left leg during the Seminoles 18-14 Champs Bowl victory over Notre Dame. Florida State measures quarterbacks by a stan-dard of national titles and Heisman trophies. Manuel may not be able to match those feats, but he is within range of catching Charlie Ward in passing yardage and possibly touchdown passes. A three-year starter, Chris Weinkes 9,839 yards passing and 79 career TDs are largely out of reach. But Manuel says hes not interested in personal stats. I love winning, Manuel said. I just want to win. FILE ARTFlorida States EJ Manuel scrambles for extra yardage in a game against the Oklahoma Sooners last year in Tall ahassee.

Beal announced his intentions Friday, declar-ing for the NBA draft after telling coach Billy Donovan. The 6-foot-4 Beal is expected to be a lottery pick in the June 28 draft, predicted to go in the top five. Donovan calls the 18-year-old Beal as mature a kid at this age as Ive ever been around. Beal says his dream is sitting right here in front of me and that hes ready to realize this dream. Beal averaged 14.8 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists as a freshman and made the first-team All-Southeastern Conference team. He is the second player to leave Florida for the NBA after one season dur-ing Donovans 16 years, joining Donnell Harvey (2000). Ryan Leaf charged with 4 feloniesBy MATT VOLZAssociated PressHELENA, Mont. A Montana prosecutor has formally charged former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf with four felonies in connection with allega-tions that he broke into homes to steal prescription painkillers. Cascade County Attorney John Parker charged Leaf Thursday with two counts of burglary and two counts of criminal possession of a dangerous drug. Leaf is accused of entering an acquaintances home to steal oxycodone on March 29. He was arrested the next day and released after posting bail. By RUSTY MILLERAssociated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio The list of big-time play-ers Urban Meyer had while winning two national cham-pionships at Florida goes on and on: Percy Harvin, Chris Leak, Tim Tebow, Joe Haden and Brandon Spikes, among others. So far, during his first few weeks working with his new team at Ohio State, he has yet to find anyone of that caliber. But he remains hopeful.Youve got to do it over and over again but there are times ... he said ear-lier this week after what he called the best practice hes seen the offense have in the short time hes been with the team. Its not a clown show out there like at a couple of points it was. Its a three-ring affair in many ways. With a new offensive system, the Buckeyes are learning new plays, new terminology, new philosophies really one philosophy, Meyers. Its just really, really, really uptempo, offensive lineman Jack Mewhort said of the change. Were a no-huddle offense now. Thats dramatically different from years past when Ohio State relied more on muscle and execution to blow people off the ball, freeing the skill players to pile up big yardage. Last year we were much more of an I-formation team, kind of a pro-style thing with the quarterback under center a lot, fullback Zach Boren said. This year its all about spreading the field and making vertical plays, getting the ball up and down the field with speed. Were not going to be lining up with a fullback and a tight end in the box and just running power. Were still going to run power this year, were still going to be a tough, physi-cal power running team, but were just going to do it out of different formations and let guys play in space and make plays. Now if somebody on offense would just prove that they can do that. All spring Meyer has lamented that no one has shown breakaway speed or playmaking ability. That doesnt mean the Buckeyes havent made some head-way, but its not like theyve unearthed a Harvin who can crack a game open from any of three or four positions. In his first season after taking over a program rocked by Jim Tressels forced resignation less than a year ago and a 6-7 mark under interim coach Luke Fickell last fall, Meyer believes the Buckeyes are gaining ground, literally. Theres momentum in (the running back) group, he said. As long as theres momentum in a group, thats a positive. And the receivers are getting better. But some-one has to we need two or three to step up. Funny, but Ohio State might have found someone to turn the tide on the other side of the ball. Although he is far from proving himself an All-American, as Haden and Spikes did at Florida at cornerback and linebacker, respectively, lineman John Simon has been a mainstay on defense. How good has he been? Meyer went so far as to compare Simon to one of his favorite players at his last coaching stop, a guy still making headlines. The No. 1 guy, the guy whos just a warhorse, he is Ohio State football, is John Simon, Meyer said. I cant help but say I love the guy. Hes one of the most com-mitted hes Tebowish as far as his commitment. While none of the wideouts have really stood out, many others on offense have made big strides. Quarterback Braxton Miller, running backs Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde, tight end Jake Stoneburner and occasionally others have displayed a knack for biting off chunks of yardage. Of the burly (6-foot, 235 pounds) Hyde, Meyer said, Hes drinking the Kool-Aid right now. But that doesnt mean hes marked himself as someone who can change a game with one step, one swivel of the hips, one shake-and-bake move like famed Florida quarterbacks Leak and Tebow, who deliv-ered national titles.

In Interlachen on March 27, Fort White won 3-2 on a home run by Sydney Walker in the top of the ninth inning. Weve beat them twice, but both times it has been a close game, Fort White head coach Cassie Sparks said. Its not going to be an easy win. We just need to play solid defense behind Cecile and get the bats going early. If we get run-ners in scoring position, we can make things happen. The Lady Indians had the bats working on Friday, put-ting up 10 runs in a 15-10 loss to Lafayette High. We are ready for the tournament, Sparks said. We just have to play one game at a time, and play the game, not the opponent. The girls have to get men-tally prepared. The top two teams in the district tournament will advance to the state play-offs. Q Whoever scheduled 19-4 Lafayette for Senior Night spent the first three innings in time out, as the Hornets built at 12-3 lead. Fort White fought back with seven runs in the next two innings to pull within two. Lafayette added three insurance runs in the seventh inning. Fort Whites seniors Ali Wrench, Kayla Williams and Gomez shined on offense for their big day. Wrench was 4-for-5 with a triple and three runs scored. Gomez was 3-for-4 with two doubles, four RBIs and three runs scored. Williams reached base three times and her two-out, two-run single in the fifth inning closed the gap to two runs. Among the underclassmen, Alexa Hatcher was 3-for-5 with an RBI and run scored. DKota Cassady was 1-for-3 and scored three runs. Walker had a two-run single, and both Tayler Terry and Jessica Widlan had base hits. Gomez basically pitched batting practice for three innings. She settled down to throw three scoreless innings, as Fort White mounted its comeback. She walked two and struck out six. Lindsey OSteen pitched into the fifth inning for Lafayette. Lacey Swofford relieved and went the rest of the way. Leading the offense for the Hornets were Stacy McClelland (three two-run doubles, three runs scored), Lydia Land (3-5, RBI, run scored) Sydney Shows (3-3, four runs scored) and OSteen (home run, two doubles, four RBIs, two runs scored). Fort White lost 4-3 at Union County High on Thursday. Wrench was 3-for-4 with a double, RBI and run scored. Hatcher was 2-for-4 with an RBI. of this team. Shes working harder and playing better in all areas. The group of seniors has won 90 games together since beginning as fresh-men. The magic number now is two. Thats what it would take to earn a third district championship. Theyre pretty focused on what they have to do, Williams said. We have an opportunity in front of us to better last years mark. We can go further than weve ever been. After falling half of a game short of reaching the Final Four as juniors, Williams believes that Columbia has what it takes to reach that goal in the seniors final opportunity. We made it to the regional final, he said. We were a half game away. If we can put together a six-game winning streak, well be there. And Williams has an easy philosophy for the Lady Tigers chances should they reach the Final Four. Once we get there, anything can happen, he said.

For the last four years a group known as the Fab 4 since breaking into the starting lineup as freshmen have made up the heart of the Lady Tigers. This year the group of four including Michaela Burton, Jessica Keene, Stephanie Pilkington and Payton Sund added another member to their group to grow to five. Fort White High transfer Taylor Douglass came in and added more to Columbias senior-laden team with an all-around talent on the mound, at the plate and in the field. The group has led the Lady Tigers to another 20-win season and Columbia will attempt to make the playoffs for the third time in the four-year period that the group has been together. It started as freshmen when the group battled Forest and won a district championship. An upset loss against Middleburg High during the groups sophomore season is the lone setback keeping them from a high-school career full of state-playoff appearances. Last year, the group added its second district title and the quest for a third begins on Tuesday. Columbia most likely will have to go through St. Augustine High for a chance to meet the team that gave the Lady Tigers their only district loss in the season for a chance at a third championship. The Lady Tigers want revenge on Atlantic Coast and thats likely who CHS would meet in the district championship on its home field. Well probably have to play them three times and we just want to win the next two, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said after Columbias loss against Atlantic Coast earlier this year. For the dreams that this group has set before them, Atlantic Coast stands as its biggest obstacle. A district championship would send the Lady Tigers home for the beginning of their run. Over the last couple of weeks, Columbia has come into its own. The Lady Tigers went 3-1 against ranked teams in the Kissimmee Klassic with its only loss coming against two-time defending state champion Gulliver Prep out of Miami. The loss was a close one with Columbia falling 3-0. The Lady Tigers have the all-around talent to send the seniors off with a trip to the Final Four and perhaps even more. Teams are only as strong in softball as their infield and all five of the seniors play in the infield with a strong sophomore in Kayli Kvistad holding down shortstop. Kvistad could be just as important to the Lady Tigers run as she holds the power in her hands literally. Kvistad set a Columbia record over two consecutive years in home runs. She hit 11 as a freshman to break Celeste Gomezs record and Kvistad broke her own record with 13 this season. Against teams that havent scouted Columbia, she could provide a boost, but all of the Lady Tigers are capable of hitting one out. As a team Columbia has 25 homers this year, but thats just the start of their power. The Lady Tigers have 46 doubles this season and six triples. Four batters are over .400 for the season and nobody on that has played the entire season has below a .250 on-base percentage. Whats better is the Lady Tigers also have a pitching rotation that goes four deep with two seniors in the mix. Douglass and Keene can both be called upon for innings, but the Lady Tigers have been pleased with the performances theyve got out of Erin Anderson and Ashley Shoup as well. Shoup was a late addition to the team, but shes been on fire as of late. After picking up two wins at the Kissimmee Klassic, Shoup helped right the ship with the Lady Tigers trailing 5-1 on Senior Night against P.K. Yonge. The freshman shutdown P.K. Yonge the rest of the way as Douglass got hot with the bat to help spark the Lady Tigers comeback on Thursday. Its those kinds of performances that Williams will be banking on as he looks to guide the seniors on a Road to the Ring that they wont forget.

Clark is also excited about having Espenship back, because it gives the Tigers a third starter. With him back, we now have three No. 1 guys, Clark said. It also makes the bullpen stron ger, because now we have options. If one guy gets in trouble, we can still bring in another guy that can go deep. Espenship also had a good night at the plate with two hits to help lead Columbia over Newberry High, 9-4, on Thursday. Blaine Courson had a home run in the game and Barber had a triple. Bailey earned his sev enth win after striking out eight batters in four innings. The Tigers werent as fortunate against St. Augustine in a 7-5 home loss. Espenship gave CHS a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first by driving in Levi Hollinsworth, but thats the last time the Tigers would lead in a 4-2 loss to the Yellow Jackets.

And the more time you spend contributing to tax-advantaged investments, the better off you may be. As an investor, time is your ally for two reasons. First, the more time you give to your growth-oriented investments, the greater their growth potential. And second, the effects of market volatility have tended to decrease over time, though, as you no doubt have heard, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Clearly, it pays to put time on your side. And when youre investing in tax-advantaged vehicles, time becomes an even more critical component of investment success, especially when youre young and have several decades ahead of you before you retire. Suppose, for example, that you put $200 per month into to an investment on which you paid taxes every year. If you earned a hypothetical 7 percent return on this investment, youd end up with about $324,000 after forty years. But if you put that same $200 per month into a tax-deferred investment, such as a traditional IRA, and you earned that same 7 percent return, youd wind up with about $513,000 after forty years. Of course, once you starting taking withdrawals, presumably when youre retired, youll have to pay taxes on your earnings, so your after-tax accumulation would be about $385,000, assuming you took your IRA in a lump sum (which most people dont) and also assuming you were in the 25 percent tax bracket. However, by the time you retire, you may be in a lower bracket. Plus, you have some control over how much you withdraw each year, so you may be able to affect the taxes youll have to pay. Furthermore, depending on your income level, your contributions to a traditional IRA may be tax deductible in the years in which you make the contributions. (Keep in mind that this hypothetical example is for illustrative purposes only and does not UHSUHVHQWDVSHFLFLQYHVWPHQWRULQYHVWPHQWstrategy.) While tax deferral is obviously a nice feature for an investment, tax-free may be even better. So, if you meet the income requirements, you might want to consider investing in a Roth IRA, which provides tax-free earnings withdrawals, provided youve KDG\RXUDFFRXQWIRUDWOHDVWYH\HDUVDQGyou dont start taking withdrawals until youre at least 59-1/2. This means that, in the above example, youd have accumulated that same $513,000 but you wont have to pay taxes on your withdrawals. Generally speaking, the 5RWK,5$PD\PDNHPRUHQDQFLDOVHQVHIRUpeople who are eligible, but if you think youre going to be in a lower tax bracket when you retire, and your income level permits you to deduct some of your contributions, you may want to consider a traditional IRA. Consult with your tax advisor for guidance on the most appropriate approach for your situation. When it comes to building resources for retirement, its almost impossible to save and invest too much. So take full advantage of both time and tax-advantaged investments.

LIFE Sunday, April 15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D What a great time of the year to be outside working in the yard and garden. There are always things to do, and the following are some suggestions for that April honey do list. You still have time to dig, divide and replant clumps of bulbs or perennial flowers before the stresses of summer heat arrive. Use the plant divisions to increase your garden display, start some new planting beds, or share with friends and neighbors as pass-along plants. But make sure you arent passing along potentially invasive plants such as lantana, Japanese honeysuckle, or Mexican petunias. Many warm season vegetable crops will still do well if planted in April. Some of the plants you will want to get into the ground this month include tomatoes, peppers, corn, squash, green beans, and melons. Other warm season vegetables such as okra, eggplant, southern peas, lima beans, and sweet potatoes have a longer planting season and can be planted through late spring and into early summer. For a complete list of vegetable planting dates in North Florida, check out the UF/IFAS Florida Vegetable Gardening Guide at http:// edis.ifas.ufl.edu/VH02. Start checking your shrubs and flowers for aphids now. These small insects are about 1/8 inch long and are usually green or dark in color. They feed on many different plants by piercing the plant tissue and sucking out the plant juices. They love to feed on the new flush of plant growth that is abundant in the early spring. Signs of feeding aphids include curled leaves, distorted flowers, or faded leaf color. You may also notice a black sooty mold on leaves. The mold is caused by honeydew which is the sticky excretion of aphids and several other small juice sucking insects. Ants like to feed on the sweet honeydew, so if you see ant activity on a plant, check under the leaves and along new shoots for feeding aphids. To learn more about aphids, go to http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/MG002 Many homeowners prefer to remove aphids and suppress populations by simply spraying the insects off with the garden hose. Once they are washed off, they wont be able to make their way back to the plants and other critters just eat them up. Another environmentally friendly way to control aphids is to use insecticidal soaps. Always use insecticides according to the directions on the label Join us for our upcoming 2-day workshop on Gardening North Florida Style, April 24th and April 25th Call the UF/IFAS Columbia County Extension Office for more information. 752-5384 D.

Contact Robert BridgesEditor email@example.com Lake City ReporterBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comIn a room with toys and movies, small hand prints are painted on the wall in green, red and yellow. The hand prints are from children who have visited Chances for Children, a child advocacy center in Lake City, often at the most frightening time of their lives. Every 40 seconds a child suffers from abuse or neglect, according to the Childrens Home Society of Florida. Four children die daily from abuse or neglect. April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, an effort to increase public awareness of child maltreatment and services available to support families. At Chances for Children representatives from different agencies meet to discuss and make decisions about investigations, treatments and prosecutions of child abuse cases. The center, at 405 E. Duval St., manages abuse cases from start to finish and serves as an advocate during the criminal justice process. Any child you work with leaves a hand print on your heart, said Sandy Tice, victims advocate and center founder. Children are allowed to leave their hand print on the wall. The center also works with officials to prevent child abuse, by providing food, clothing and family support programs. Families come to the center when they are on the verge of losing their children for economic reasons, she said. Often small things like wall JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterChances for Children, along Lake DeSoto, provides a place for officials to interview a child, rather than having the child retell their story up to nine times at different locations during an abuse investigation. The child advocacy center is a home-like environment to calm and comfort children, Tice said.ASSOCIATED PRESSIrish Whiskey Cask Stout is seen in this file photo in this undated image released by Innis & Gunn.By MICHELLE LOCKEAssociated PressFine wine is said to improve with barrel aging. So why not fine beer? Thats the thinking behind the emerging craft beer trend of aging brews in the barrel to give them more complexity. Theres something extra about the flavor, says Dougal Sharp, master brewer and owner of the Scotland-based company Innis & Gunn, which has just introduced its Irish Whiskey Cask Stout in the United States. Oak aging anything a wine, a spirit or a beer imparts enormous depth of flavor and mellowness and complexity. Just think about some of the best, the real premier cru oak-aged wines that youve had. You might not be able to point to exactly why you just love the wine, but you do because it has this enormous depth of flavor. Thats what barrel-aging gives beer. The Innis & Gunn beer was a bit of an accident that began about a decade ago when Sharp, working for his familys brewing company in Edinburgh, got an order from an Irish whiskey maker looking for a custom-brewed beer to season whiskey barrels for a special finish. The plan was to throw out the beer once the seasoning process was over, and thats what happened at first. But then some distillery employees who apparently had practiced a little initiative intervened. I got a call one day from the distillery to say, Youre not going to believe this but the workers who are emptying these barrels out dont want to throw the beer down the drain because they say its just too delicious. Sharp investigated and later, after refining the process, set up Innis & Gunn with his brother, Neil. (Innis and Gunn are the brothers middle names.) The company also makes GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@ufl.edu Chances for Children child advocacy center has helped more than 150 families locally in its first year. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterSandy Tice, victims advocate and Chances for Children founder, talks about the hand prints children are allowed to paint on the centers wall. The activity is a fun diversion for children who are usually at the center after being abused or neglected, she said. repairs or new beds mean a child can stay with their family, Tice said. The center provides a place for officials to interview a child, rather than having the child retell their story several times, Tice said. During an abuse investigation a child may be asked to recount the abuse up to nine times by different agencies, she said. Some environments like police departments and the Florida Department of Children and Families can be scary for children. Children may even think they are being arrested, she said. Chances for Children is a more relaxed, home-like environment, said Tice, who was a supervisor for the Guardian ad Litem program for 11 years. We are asking a child to step into an adult situation, she said. I want Something new brewing in aged beers HANDPRINTS continued on 2D BARREL continued on 2D

Child protection teams from the University of Florida come to the center regularly for forensic interviews, medical evaluations and assessments of local children. Before the center, families had to travel to Gainesville, Tice said. During a crisis or domestic violence situation children may wait in the centers living room until they can be placed into custody of another family member, she said. Many rooms in the converted home offer calming views of Lake DeSoto, she said. Law enforcement, school districts and DCF refers families to the center, which serves Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton and Lafayette counties. This program has always been a dream of mine, said Tice, who was abused as a child. The center has rooms for counseling to help abused children and non-offending family members overcome the situation. Abused children may grow up feeling like it was their fault if they dont get help, she said. I enjoy helping teenagers and kids understand they arent going through it alone, she said. The system for handling child abuse cases can be frustrating and segmented, she said. Chances for Children provides stability by managing the cases and puts families in contact with other resources. Throughout the process the center is careful not to injure a child or family members pride, Tice said. We do not make them feel looked down upon because of their situation, she said. The center opened in January 2011, Tice said. It runs on grants, donations and volunteer work. In its first year the center helped 151 families. This year Tice said she makes about 60 contacts a month with children, families and other agencies. Our numbers in the past two years have tripled, she said. The increase is because more people know about the center and because tough economic times can lead to abuse and violence in the home, she said. This is a community with heart, Tice said. When families needed beds or blankets for their children, Tice said she voiced the need on Facebook and the supporters made it happen. Local churches offer mentoring services to families. Donations from Life Scout Jeremy Barwicks record-attempting food drive started the centers food bank, Tice said. Whatever we seem to need shows up, she said.

Aged for 60 days in a three-step maturation process, the beer is priced at $12.99 a four-pack and there are plans to introduce it in draft form. Though its still a niche in the overall industry, woodand barrel-aged beers merited their own category in the 2011 Great American Beer Festival, with 40 entries. And theyre just one of the many developments to arise from the fast-moving craft beer scene. The entire American beer scene has changed over the past three decades because of todays small U.S. craft producers, says Julia Herz, craft beer program direct at the Brewers Association, based in Boulder, Colo. How big is craft beer? In March, the Brewers Association, which repre sents small and indepen dent brewers, released preliminary 2011 data showing a 15 percent increase in craft brewers retail sales from 2010 to 2011, representing a total barrel increase of 1.3 million. At the Saxon + Parole restaurant in New York City, Innis & Gunn is served as well as a bourbon-barrelaged beer, Curieux, from Allagash Brewing Co. in Portland, Me. Both are really delicious, especially for beerlovers eager to try something different, says Naren Young, who overseas the beverage program at the restaurant. For those people that want Bud Light, this is certainly not for them, he says. But the beers are just home runs for those people who want to experiment. He sees barrel-aged beer as another way craft beer producers are staking their claim as an alternative to mainstream offerings. And he likes the way it goes against the quick and fast trend that seems to apply just about everywhere else these days. Barrel-aging takes time and adds such a nice complexity, he says. The craft movement has enlightened people to what small-batch beer can be.BARREL: Something new is brewingContinued From Page 1D Birth announcementTim and Katie Johnson of Lake City announce the birth of their daughter Maddyn Annesa Johnson March 13 in the Womens Center at North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville.

By JILL LAWLESSAssociated PressLONDON It may lack wizards and witches, but J.K. Rowling and her publisher are hoping her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy, will have the magic touch. The books title was announced Thursday by Little, Brown & Co. along with a brief plot synopsis and publication date. The publisher said the blackly comic tale of rivalry and duplicity in a small English town would be available worldwide on Sept. 27. The book will be Rowlings first postPotter effort. Her seven-volume saga about the adventures of a boy wizard became one of the most successful fictional series in history and led to a series of extremely popular films. The new book, aimed at a grown-up audience, will be set in a seemingly idyllic English town called Pagford which is described as far more menacing than its pretty facade would indicate. It opens with the sudden death of a popular man whose unexpected demise shocks the town. The battle for his seat on the local council sets off the biggest war the town has yet seen, with rich people fighting poor, parents battling their teenagers, and wives in conflict with their husbands. The publisher said the 480-page novel will be sold as an e-book and audio download as well as in traditional hardback form. The seven Harry Potter novels have sold 450 million copies and have been translated into 74 languages. Rowlings final Potter offering, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was published in 2007. She published a short Potter spin-off collection of stories, The Tales Of Beedle The Bard, in 2008. Rowling said earlier this year she wanted to reach an adult audience, but kept the books name and publication date secret until Thursday. In the past, many successful childrens writers have struggled to remake themselves as adult authors. Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne, a successful playwright in his early years, once confessed that he was forced to say goodbye to all that after his beloved books about the bear and friends. But Rowling has one advantage: the Potter books had a huge adult, as well as child, audience. Jon Howells of British book store chain Waterstones said The Casual Vacancy would likely be the years best-selling novel. He said the synopsis came as a surprise and suggested similarities to the work of popular mystery writer Alexander McCall Smith and Mark Haddon, a childrens writer who had a huge adult hit with The Curious Incident of the Dog in the NightTime. We were all expecting some sort of crime or mystery novel, but she has, refreshingly, surprised us all, Howells said. The plot sounds like it will have hints of Mark Haddon and McCall Smith, and the promise of black comedy is very beguiling.J.K. Rowlings next book: The Casual Vacancy ASSOCIATED PRESSBritish author J K Rowling arrives at a cinema in Londons Leicester Square for the World Premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. She may not be able to match the phenomenal success of the Harry Potter series, but J.K. Rowling has high hopes for The Casual Vacancy, her first novel for adults. The title was announced Thursday, April 12, by Little, Brown & Co. along with a brief plot synopsis for the book.The publisher said it will be available worldwide on Sept. 27.
LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2012 3D By SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES Fix the dogs and feed the men. Thats what Lori Weise decided to do 16 years ago when she started working at Modernica Inc., a furniture factory on the edge of L.A.s Skid Row. She couldnt get to work without seeing the homeless being bullied and their dogs or countless other strays being abused. She created Downtown Dog Rescue in the back of the factory and, with the help of co-workers, started trapping strays. She talked to the homeless, one man at a time, convincing them their dogs would be better off spayed or neutered. Food was a powerful incentive. She posted fli ers in alleys and doorways, promising free pizza for the men and free surgery for the dogs at a mobile clinic she arranged for. She wor-ried no one would come, but when she arrived, the line was two blocks long. The homeless also couldnt get a dog license without an address. So Modernicas address was used to license 300 dogs. Since those early days, Downtown Dog Rescue has paid for thousands of sur-geries, placed or fostered thousands of dogs, and provided meals galore for man and mutt. The shelter is still located in the back of Modernica, but there arent many homeless left downtown, so Weise now brings shelter services to Compton, where the crime rate makes living hard for residents and the euthana-sia rate makes living a chal-lenge for dogs. For the last two years, a monthly spay and neu ter clinic has been held in a Compton park, run by the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care & Control with $100,000 annual funding from DDR. In 2011, the clinic sterilized close to 800 dogs, according to Weise, and the euthanasia rate for pit bulls at the county shelter dropped 30 percent. Dog trainer Cornelius Dog Man Austin is also part of Weises team. Growing up in South Los Angeles, Austin said, the streets were infested with pit bulls. I was 10 or 11 and in my neigh-borhood, thats all they did was fight pit bulls, he recalled. Today he holds weekly obedience classes for DDR at the Los Angeles Coliseum, teaching owners basic commands, agility, urban walking and what to do if your dog is attacked. The class draws between 30 and 50 dogs a week. While Downtown Dog Rescue has grown since the late 90s from a couple of kennels to 22, Modernica, the furniture maker, has grown from six employees to 80. Owners and broth-ers Frank and Jay Novak are neither dog people nor homeless activists, but they believe in what Weise, their plant manager, stands for. The shelter helps define the company and has become part of the compa-nys culture, Frank Novak said. He marvels at the way Weise comes up with choice homes for unwanted dogs. She never talks down to people, Novak said. She is so genuine. I think people are impressed by her sin cerity and people know none of the money (close to $200,000 in donations a year) goes to administrative costs. Eight months ago, Modernica started moving its production plant to a big-ger building in Vernon. They have given Weise a half-acre where she can build a new shelter but she is still negotiating with the city for permits. The rescue is also working to raise $50,000 for the building, plumbing and electricity. Meanwhile, the dogs are downtown, where the com-panys prop department (they do a lot of Hollywood work) will stay. Weise drives back and forth each morn-ing and night to care for them. She is a one-woman army. What she means to Compton and homeless people with their pets is services they would never get otherwise, said Bob Goldman, a veterinar ian at VCA Petville Animal Hospital in Los Angeles. She is fearless. She will go into neighborhoods nobody in their right mind would go into. She just goes with her conviction and knowledge she is going to help somebody, said Carole Pearson, founder and presi-dent of Los Angeles-based Dawg Squad. Pearson, who specializes in placing Rottweilers, helps Weise with any Rotts she finds. Weise is often asked to speak at seminars and con-ferences across the coun-try. Thats where Stephanie Downs, co-founder of FiXiT Foundation in Virginia met her. I was inspired by her determination and willing-ness to do what it took to get to the root of the prob-lem, Downs said. She works in some of the rough-est neighborhoods in the country and doesnt follow the standard model we are expected to in the spay/neuter industry. Most of the men (it was rare to find women on the streets back then) Weise befriended 15 years ago are in prisons or hospitals or have died. But Weise took many of their dogs. I prom-ised a lot of the men as long as their dogs are alive, they will have a good place to live and Ill love them, she said. She has about nine dogs in retirement at her home. That includes Clancy, a 15-year-old pit bull and the rescues unofficial mascot, who accompanies Weise almost everywhere she goes. Clancy was a professional fighting dog before Weise rescued him five years ago. He is now the dog he was meant to be, she said. Austin is always telling Weise she cant save every dog, but they both keep try-ing. Look at Clancy, the battle wounds on his face, Austin said. This dog went through battle rounds. Somebody cut his ears off. Hes got 50 scars on his face. Hes one of the best. Just like Lori. By JEFF BARNARDAssociated PressScientists are blaming slightly higher levels of car bon dioxide in Pacific Ocean waters linked to global warming for the failure of oyster larvae to survive in an Oregon hatchery. They say higher acidity of the water that comes with more carbon dioxide makes it harder for young oysters to form their shells, dooming them in a matter of days, even if they are moved to more favorable environments. A lot of studies talk about the year 2050 when ocean acidification becomes a prob lem, for sea life, said lead author Alan Barton, produc tion manager at the Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery on Netarts Bay. It showed up five years ago for us, and almost put the hatchery out of business. The study appeared Tuesday in the online edition of the journal Limnology and Oceanography. The predicted rise of atmo spheric CO2 in the next two to three decades may push oyster larval growth past the break-even point in terms of production, study co-author Burke Hales, professor of bio geochemical oceanography at Oregon State University, said in a statement. The study represents some of the first research taking the issue out of the laboratory and putting it into the natural environment, said Annaliese Hettinger, a doctor al candidate at the University of California at Davis Bodega Lab, who did not take part in the study. This is a good example of industry coming together with scientists to come up with potential solutions to the environmental problems we are facing in this area, she said. Hatcheries and oyster farms relying on natural reproduction started hav ing trouble with larvae sur vival in 2005, said Barton. At Whiskey Creek, which raises larvae from Pacific and kumamoto oysters that origi nally come from Japan, they began noticing a correlation between times when ocean upwelling was strong and lar vae die-offs. One day all the larvae in the hatchery was dead, he said. It was right in the mid dle of a big upwelling event. Thats when the light went on for us. We needed to start looking at the water chem istry. Ocean upwelling is a phe nomenon on the West Coast triggered by north winds that cause waters from the bot tom to rise to the top, bring ing with them nutrients that feed the whole food web. Those deep ocean waters have always been more acid ic than surface waters. When rising carbon dioxide levels in surface water combined with the deep ocean water, it pushed conditions past the point where oyster lar vae could survive, the study found. Oyster larvae start to form their shells from a form of calcium carbonate called ara gonite, said Chris Langdon, a professor of fisheries at Oregon State University who runs the shellfish broodstock program at Hatfield Marine Science Center and took part in the study. Once they stop swimming and attach them selves to a rock or oyster shell, they switch to a tougher form known as calcite that is less vulnerable to acid levels. But by then it is too late. It looks like to us that they are the most sensitive in the first 48 hours, said Hales. If we can just get them over that hump, then they are a lot less sensitive to subsequent variations. It appears that larvae just dont have the energy to properly form their shells under higher acid conditions, Langdon said. Hales said the good news is that if hatcheries can manage their water supply to reduce the acidity, either by chang ing the times they take water from the ocean, or by adding neutralizing chemicals, they will have better larvae sur vival. However, oysters repro ducing in the wild will have a harder time. Owner Kevin Lunny holds a Pacific oyster at the Drakes Bay Oyster Co. in Point Reyes National Seashore, Calif. Scientists blame higher levels of carbon diox ide in Pacific Ocean waters caused by man-made global warming for the failure of oysters to produce young at an Oregon hatchery.ASSOCIATED PRESSStudents prepare for a training and obedience class for pit bulls led by Cornelius Dog Man Austin, not picture d, at the Coliseum in downtown Los Angeles.

Study blames ocean CO2 for oyster declines By Martha WaggonerAssociated PressRALEIGH, N.C. On a January night, under cover of darkness, Matt Tomasulo and friends dared to com mit a subversive act: They placed 27 signs at three inter sections in Raleigh, advising people how long it takes to walk from one destination to another. Its an 18 minute walk to Glenwood South, read one sign in purple, the color Tomasulo chose for com mercial interests. Its a 7 minute walk to Raleigh City Cemetery, read another in green, designated for public spaces. The signs were so wellmade that city officials assumed someone had autho rized them. And Tomasulo and the two friends looked so innocuous that a police officer who passed by that rainy night didnt question them. He stopped and read it and realized it wasnt adver tising and just kept walking, Tomasulo said Wednesday. But leaders in Raleigh, which has a population of about 400,000, werent involved in the project. Instead, the signs were part of a movement called guerril la or tactical urbanism, where citizens change their cities, often without official approv al. They were also part of Tomasulos masters project in city and regional planning at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to cre ate an advocacy campaign called Walk Raleigh, designed to promote healthier commu nities through walking. The project is just offering the idea that its OK to walk, said Tomasulo, 30, whos get ting a dual degree from UNC and N.C. State University in landscape architecture. Its not telling you to walk. Its just offering the idea that its OK, and it is a choice. I think thats the biggest issue -people just dont even think about walking as a choice right now. Even if you cant walk to get your groceries, I think you can still choose to walk each day. The signs complete with QR codes that allow pedestri ans to download directions on their smartphones stayed up for about month before city officials learned of their unauthorized origin and took them down. But the signs made of corrugated cardboard and vinyl so theyre weatherproof went back up again this week as part of a 90-day pilot program to evaluate the pub lics response. Meanwhile, the city of Hoboken, N.J., is considering adapting the signs for that city, and Tomasulo has heard from people in other countries Australia, Germany, France, Great Britain who are also interested. A group in Tennessee is considering doing something similar to what Tomasulo did plac ing signs around a city one night with directions that encourage walking. All that has led Walk Raleigh to blossom into Walk (Your City) and helped Tomasulo develop a web site where cities can create their own signs. Hes raised almost $8,000 online and got ten nibbles from companies that want to partner with him. Tomasulo also owns a company called CityFabric, which sells totes, posters and T-shirts with the digital map of various cities.Student project to encourage walking gains citys support Matt Tomasulo poses for a photo by some of his signs in downtown Raleigh, N.C., recently. On a January night he and friends put up 27 signs that advised people how to walk to vari-ous locations. The project, part of his masters thesis, has taken off with city officials, with two other states now planning to use his signs.ASSOCIATED PRESS ASSOCIATED PRESS

DEAR ABBY: Im confused about the protocol in thanking or repaying someone after staying sev-eral nights at their home. My feeling is, if youre staying with people, the nicest way to thank them for their hospitality is to pay for most, if not all, the lunches and dinners you share with them when you dine out. That way, you lessen the monetary burden of your visit, and it gives you a chance to say thank you for the use of their home. Some visitors seem to think that when they come to your home, you should not only put them up, but also pay for all their activities while you show them your town. What is correct? Or is it a matter of preference? -VISITING FROM PHOENIX DEAR VISITING: According to Emily Post, when a guest stays over-night, a nice bottle of wine would be a proper gift if you know your hosts drink and their preference. If there are children in the household, a game they can all enjoy or candy might be nice. If you will be staying longer, she suggests a picture frame with a photo taken during your visit sent afterward, a houseplant in a decorative pot, hand towels or beach towels. And I agree with you that treating your host(s) to a nice dinner during your visit would be gracious and thoughtful. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: One of my best supervisors is in a same-sex relationship. She and her partner are raising three wonderful children from previous marriages. I have introduced them to my husband at the office as well as work-related social events. He says he hates them because he believes their relationship broke up their marriages and its wrong to raise their children this way. When he encounters them he refuses to acknowledge them and will snarl when near them. Neither of them have done anything to deserve this treatment, and it makes me embarrassed and ashamed of him. Ive tried to reason with him -noth-ing works. I told him flat out he can have his opin-ions, but I expect him to treat them with respect. Im to the point where I have to attend work-related functions alone and not allow him to come to my office. Thats one solution, but Im still upset about his attitude in general. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. -UPSET IN TEXAS DEAR UPSET: I suspect that your husbands reason for hating your supervi-sor has less to do with the fact that she and her part-ner ended their marriages, and more to do with knee-jerk homophobia. Children who are raised in happy homes do better than those who are raised in a household filled with unresolved tension. I cant change your husbands attitude, and neither can you. Only he can do that, but enlightenment isnt likely to be achieved until he recognizes a need for it. P.S. His manners are atrocious, and youre right to keep him apart from your work environment. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Help will be offered if you show initiative. An old friend or lover will play a role in your life. Dont let something that happened a long time ago stand in the way of an opportunity that can change your life. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep things simple, even if those around you want to make a big splash. Being practical now will leave you more room to maneuver when you want to do something special or make a purchase. Structure will help you achieve your goals. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It doesnt matter what others think or do, as long as you are satisfied with your effort and the results. Do whats best for you. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be realistic about what you can and cannot do. Travel to destinations that will educate you cultur-ally. The information you gather now will help you determine where you want to put your time and how you want to help others. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Join in, go where the action is and share your thoughts and knowledge with the people you meet. Come together and join forces with people who share your interests and beliefs. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Open up and share with people who have something to offer in return. An opportunity to travel or visit friends or relatives will broaden your horizons and give you greater options for future advancement. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get involved in a project that will help you look and be your best. The changes you make now will influence the way someone treats you in the future. You will gain confidence and personal stability if you take positive action. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Self-deception can lead to a poor choice regarding love, money and personal gains. Think matters through to the end and determine if someone you are dealing with has ulterior motives before you commit your time, ideas or cash. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): What you do for others will not be a waste of time. Love issues will surface if you spend too much time helping outsid-ers. Include the people you love most in your plans. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): There is plenty to learn through observation. Watch how others react and what unfolds between friends, family or people you encounter in your community. effort as you. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Concentrate on home and family and making the most with what you have. Greater stability will be yours if you put together a tight budget that will help you reach your personal goals. Self-improvement projects will pay off. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont keep secrets from someone with whom you are personally involved. The more vocal you are, the easier it will be to get things done your way. Dont let ego get in the way of a deci-sion that has to be made to advance. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Split the tab8 Left15 McEnroe rival19 Under development? 20 Put on microfiche,maybe 21 Golfer with an DUP\ 22 1997 Will Smith/TommyLee Jones flick 24 Van Gogh or Monet vista )URVW\DLU"26 Knicks star Anthony, to fans +LNHUVZHDU29 General refusal?31 Attention getter%LVKRSVORFDOH36 Preventive measure,proverbially 40 Yesteryear41 Huge, to Hugo3ULPDGRQQDV features 46 Skip over water, as stones 49 Some game51 Headstone phrase55 Camaro ___-Z)UDFWLRQRID min. 59 Phony: Prefix60 Commercial suffix withPower 61 Baskin-Robbins unit 63 Smooths67 Athlete wearing a FDOOLJUDSKLF'logo 69 Lurid 1979 film about John'LOOLQJHUVgirlfriend, with7KH 76 Went downhill fast 77 Misses part of a movie, maybe &RQWRUWLRQLVWV bendy part 79 Letter seen twice in Philadelphia 81 Stray sounds?84 Blocks (up)87 Masculine principle 7REHRQWKH VDIHVLGH 93 Bank take-back95 Seasonal potation96 Hook hand97 Stone-pushing Winter Olympian 99 Japanese native101 Golf ace5RJHUVVSDUWQHU112 Swiss cheese concoction 113 ___ driver114 The Royal Game of India 5XVVLDVBBB Mountains 7KHUHLVBBB120 Refuges121 One who looks IULHQGO\EXWLVQW 126 31-Across, for one 127 Like some bad language 128 Hammy, say129 Compos mentis6SRXVHV acquiescence 131 Perched 'RZQ 'HVLJQHU9HUVDFH2 Hoofing it3 Coercion4 Multipurpose5 Private investigator, inslang 'RDVHPHVWHUV worth ofstudying in onenight, say 7 Breakfast items often eaten withspoons $PVFUD\9 Total%DG0RRQ 5LVLQJEDQGfor short 11 Yellowfin tuna2))WDUJHW13 Ex-senator Bayh14 Reply to *UDFLDV 15 Security crises16 Where skaters skate 17 Where skaters skate 18 Vcomponents21 Org.23 Big name in the diamondbusiness? 28 Set (against),WVRIWHQVODQWHG 32 What [wink wink] maysignify 33 ___ about (approximately) 'XQJHRQV 'UDJRQVILJXUH 'LDQHWLFV author ___Hubbard :DQWPHWR GUDZ\RXBBB" 39 Bedews43 Certain angel44 ___ school45 Canonized mlle.46 45, e.g.47 Western U.S. gas brand 48 Locale for many a lounge chair /RXQJHOL]DUGV look 6DVTXDWFKVNLQ53 Torpedo'RHVVRPH\DUG work 56 Pan handler58 Virginia athlete, informally 62 Get ready64 What a texter of PLJKWEH ;DQDGXJURXS for short 2K\HDK"BBB ZKR" 68 Glimpse70 Retainers, e.g.71 N.B.A. forward Lamar ___ *DPHRI 7KURQHVprotagonist ___Stark )DWKHURIDJUDQG duke 74 Word on a cornerstone 75 Person with a safe job? 79 Sleepers80 Run nicely82 Home of the Texas Sports+DOORI)DPH 83 Leave thunderstruck 85 Tyrannosaurus rex, archetypally 86 Prepare, as cotton candy :DNHXSDQG smell theFRIIHH 90 Not kosher91 Cockney greeting92 Head turner94 Cross to bear'LHWHU'HXWVFKPDUNV" 102 Percussion instrument witha pedal 103 Afore104 Wiggle room:K\QRW"106 Quits, slangily107 Not stay the same 108 Went back to brunette, say 109 Make ___ at110 An Obama girl 111 Check for fit'ULQNZLWKD lizard logo 116 Slips in pots118 Bar car?122 Onetime aid in psychotherapy %DK*DUGQHURI7KH Barefoot&RQWHVVD 125 Tic-tac-toe winner No. 0408 5(/($6('$7( ,118(1'26%\'DQLHO$)LQDQ(GLWHGE\:LOO6KRU W] )RUDQ\WKUHHDQVZHUVcall from a touch-tonephone: 1-900-285-5656,$1.49 each minute; or,with a credit card, 1-800-814-5554. 12345678910111213141516171819 20 21 22 23 24 2526 2728 293031323334353637 3839 4041 42434445 464748495051525354555657585960616263646566676869707172737475 76 77 78 798081828384858687888990919293949596 979899100 101102103104 105106107108 109110111 112 113 114 115116117118119 120121122123124125126127 128 129130 131 Thoughtful gifts convey proper thanks for hosts hospitality FALLSCANABEAMFAVA ASEAHOMECASTESONIC CHANGEOFADDRESSTRYME TENDRILTICKTHERE CALICOSETACAPRA CAPRIATISTROKEOFLUCK ALOANVIEWPEREAGLE BYEBYEBIRDIELADYBUG LSTLOCKRIGELYES ESIASONSWIPEISO ACHIPOFFTHEOLDBLOCK AREEUROSEARHART SITRUBLEARABYOO PROCESSPUTTERAROUND AWRAPCAPNITAINGOD MISSINGLINKSRACECARS NOTSOLEEAAMILNE IONICWANDREZONED SHARDBACKSEATDRIVERS GIJOEISLIPPORKERIC TMANSHEDSTOYSRONS Answers to last Sundays Crossword.
