From staff reportsA homeless man who said he was seekingshelter from the rain was arrested Sunday morning after he broke into a church, authorities said. Jackie Armstrong, 57, was charged with burglary and criminal mischief in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility. According to Columbia County Sheriff’s reports, around 8:30 a.m. Sunday, members of the Pentecostal Believers of the Coming of Christ Church found Armstrong inside the church, called authorities and waited outside for deputies to arrive. Cpl. Don Meyer, the first deputy at the scene, ordered Armstrong to exit the building. He com-plied and was taken into custody without incident. A screwdriver believed used to pry open the church door was found where Armstrong was standing, reports said. He was jailed without bond.

US 441, North Marion Avenue within ci ty limits, will be closed to all traffic until May 4 as a result. Traffic will be detoured through US 90, Main Boule vard and Bascom Norris Drive. Repairs mean finding a new way to workFrom staff reportsA major Lake City thoroughfare, closed Monday for railroad crossing upgrades, will remain shut for up to two weeks, say state Department of Transportation officials. US 441, North Marion Avenue within city limits, is closed to all traffic in the immediate area of the railroad crossing at Martin Luther King Jr. Street while the crossing is replaced. The detour route for through traffic is US 90 (Duval Street), US 41 (North Main Boulevard) and County Road 100A (Bascom Norris Drive). Local traffic will be able to use Montana Street on the north side of the railroad tracks but will not be able to turn east onto Martin Luther King Jr. Street from US 441. The road closure includes pedestrians who will be directed to use the next paved crossing. Norfolk Southern crews will replace the concrete crossing and the roadway approaches will be repaved up to the crossing. All work is scheduled to be completed by 5 p.m. Friday, May 4. Law enforcement officers will be located on both sides of the crossing 24 hours a day to ensure that motorists and pedes-trians use the appropriate detour routes. The crossing was last replaced 14 years ago in May 1998. About 6,000 vehicles a day travel this section of US 441. Two weeks of detours expected Social Security By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR and STEPHEN OHLEMACHERAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Social Security is rushing even fast-er toward insolvency, driven by retiring baby boomers, a weak economy and politicians’ reluctance to take painful action to fix the huge retire-ment and disability program. The trust funds that support Social Security will run dry in 2033 — three years earlier than previously pro-jected — the government said Monday. There was no change in the year that Medicare’s hospital insurance fund is projected to run out of money. It’s still 2024. The program’s trust-ees, however, said the pace of Medicare spending contin-ues to accelerate. Congress enacted a 2 percent cut for Medicare last year, and that is the main reason the trust fund exhaustion date did not advance. The trustees who oversee both programs say high energy prices are suppress-ing workers’ wages, a trend they see continuing. They also expect people to work fewer hours than previously projected, even after the econ-omy recovers. Both trends would lead to lower payroll tax receipts, which support both programs. Unless Congress acts — and forcefully — payments to millions of Americans could be cut. If the Social Security and Medicare funds ever become exhausted, the nation’s two biggest benefit programs would collect only enough money in payroll taxes to pay partial benefits. Social Security could cover about 75 percent of benefits, the trust-ees said in their annual report. Medicare’s giant hospital fund could pay 87 percent of costs. “Lawmakers should not delay addressing the longTroublecomingsoonerthanlater It’s now predicted Trust Fund will go broke in 2033.

Associated Press Trial of Hudson family members begins CHICAGO T he trial began Monday for the man accused of killing Jennifer Hudsons mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew four years ago, and although the Oscarwinning actress and singer was in the building, she wasnt present for opening statements, an official said. Hudsons fianc, David Otunga, sat in the fourth row of the Cook County courtroom gallery and stared as defendant William Balfour walked in wearing a white dress shirt and tie. Balfour is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the 2008 slayings. Prosecutors said a gift of balloons sent Hudsons then brother-in-law into such a jealous rage on Oct. 24, 2008, that he shot dead her mother, brother and nephew in a horrific act of vindictiveness in the home where the Hollywood star grew up. Balfour believed the balloons he saw at the Hudson home came from Julia Hudsons new boyfriend; driv ing away for her job as a school bus driver, she glimpsed Balfour in her mirror still lingering outside, pros ecutors have said. They said Balfour went back inside the three-story house around 9 a.m. and used a .45-caliber hand gun to kill Hudsons mother, Darnell Donerson, 57, in the living room, and then shot her brother, Jason Hudson, 29, twice in the head as he lay in bed. He allegedly drove off in Jason Hudsons SUV with Julia Hudsons son, Julian King, inside. Authorities said he shot the boy in the head as he lay behind a front seat. Mary J.

Countywide seats require 400 verified signatures while school district and commission seats require 80, according to the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections office. If candidates qualify instead by paying a fee they have until June 8 at noon. The primary election is Aug. 14 and the general election is Nov. 6. run financial challenges facing Social Security and Medicare, the trustees wrote. If they take action sooner rather than later, more options and more time will be available to phase in changes so that the public has adequate time to prepare. The trustees project that Social Security benefits will increase next year, though the increase could be small. They project a cost-of-livingadjustment, or COLA, of 1.8 percent for 2013; the actual amount wont be known until October. Beneficiaries got a 3.6 percent increase this year, the first after two years without one. More than 56 million retirees, dis abled workers, spouses and children receive Social Security. The average retirement benefit is $1,232 a month; the average monthly benefit for dis abled workers is $1,111. About 50 million people are cov ered by Medicare, the medical insur ance program for older Americans. Americas aging population increased by millions of retiring baby boomers is straining both Social Security and Medicare. Potential options to reduce Social Security costs include raising the full retire ment age, which already is being gradually increased to 67, reducing annual benefit increases and limiting benefits for wealthier Americans. Policymakers could also increase the amount of wages that are sub ject to Social Security taxes. Social Security is financed by a 6.2 percent tax on the first $110,100 in workers wages. It is paid by both employers and workers. Congress temporarily reduced the tax on workers to 4.2 percent for 2011 and 2012, though the programs finances are being made whole through increased government borrowing. The Medicare tax rate is 1.45 percent on all wages, paid by both employees and workers. Social Security is split into two funds one for retirement and sur vivor benefits and one for disability. The retirement fund is projected to run out of money in 2035 while the disability fund is projected to run dry in 2016. Combined, the two funds will last until 2033. In the absence of a long-term solution, the trustees who oversee Social Security are urging Congress to shore up the disability system by reallocating money from the retire ment program, just as lawmakers did in 1994. Social Securitys trust funds con tain a total of $2.7 trillion. The money is invested in U.S. Treasury bonds. The government has used the cash to pay for other programs. The trust funds have been paying out more in benefits than they have collected in payroll taxes since 2010. The funds, however, will continue to grow until 2021 because they will earn interest on the Treasury bonds, the trustees said. Many advocates for seniors worry that Washington is too focused on benefit cuts as a way to shore up Social Security. They argue that the programs finances are not as dire as some policymakers contend. After 77 years and 13 recessions, Social Security continues to prove itself time and again as the most effec tive public program in our nations history, keeping its promise to our seniors, disabled workers, widows and children, said Rep. Xavier Becerra, the top Democrat on the House Social Security Subcommittee. Medicare is trickier to address because it has to contend with health care inflation, not just an aging popu lation. Options include raising the eligibility age, cutting payments to service providers, shifting more costs to beneficiaries or even privatizing the program. On Monday, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner called Social Security and Medicare the twin pil lars of retirement security in this country, and he declared, It is criti cal that reforms are slowly phased in over time so current beneficiaries are not affected and future beneficia ries do not experience precipitous changes. President Barack Obamas health care law is supposed to trim Medicare expenses by $500 billion, extending the life of the program. But some independent experts doubt the full savings will materialize, and even the administration concedes more cuts are needed. If Republicans succeed in repealing the law, they will have to come up with similar cuts of their own. The Affordable Care Act began this process with the most signifi cant entitlement reform in decades, Geithner said, referring to the new health law. Alternative cost projections pre pared by the trustees technical experts suggest the Medicare cuts in the health care law would be unsus tainable, driving payment rates so low that 15 percent of hospitals, nursing homes and home health providers would be in the red by 2019. The trustees conceded that their own Medicare projections could be too rosy. Based on current law, they assume cuts in payments to doctors that Congress routinely waives will actually take place. They also assume the health care law will squeeze the full amount of its cuts from the pro gram. Medicares actual future costs are highly uncertain and are likely to exceed those shown ...in this report, the trustees said. Republicans, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, are propos ing to overhaul Medicare by convert ing it into a system that mainly relies on private health insurance plans to cover future retirees. Beneficiaries would get a fixed payment from the government, with low-income seniors in poor health receiving more. Obama says he wants to preserve the existing program and its federally guaranteed benefits. But in negotia tions with congressional Republicans last year, he went further than most Democrats by signaling he was will ing to raise the eligibility age by two years to 67. Hes also willing to limit future increases in Medicare spending, a policy that prompts seri ous misgivings from groups such as AARP. Todays report reminds us that Medicare must be reformed and strengthened or it will soon collapse, said Lanhee Chen, Romneys policy director. The trustees who oversee the pro grams are Geithner, Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. There are also two public trustees, Charles Blahous and Robert Reischauer. From staff reports Columbia County NAACP President John F. Mayo announces the 30th annual Freedom Fund Luncheon on Saturday, April 28, 12 noon, at the Winfield Community Center, located 1324 NW Winfield Street. The semi-formal affair is expected to attract an audience of some 300 persons, including the sheriff, chief of police, Third Circuit Judges, Supt. of Schools, Tax Collector, Supervisor of Elections, the clergy, and a host of others. Keynote speaker is the dynam ic Reverend Nelson B. Rivers, III, NAACP Vice President of Stakeholders Relations. Some 30 years ago it was said that the Branch could not host a Luncheon at noon on Saturday at the Holiday Inn. Here we are today, 30 years later, a colossal success. This is the Branchs major fundrais er; President Mayo cordially invites the publics cooperation, participa tion and attendance. Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased from any NAACP board member. Founded in 1909 by a group of black and white citizens, the NAACP is the nations oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its adult and youth members throughout the United States and the world are pre mier advocates for civil rights in their communities. Rivers Freedom Fund Luncheon set for Saturday COURTESY The youngsters of Suwannee Valley 4Cs will benefit from a grant from the local Altrusa Club. Learning Backpacks, courtesy Altrusa From staff reports Suwannee Valley 4Cs Head Start program recently received a grant from Altrusa International of Lake City to purchase Take Home Learning Backpacks for eight Head Start classrooms in Columbia County. Michele Ward, Executive Director of Suwannee Valley 4Cs, said our program was very blessed to receive the Altrusa grant, without it we would not have been able to purchase this valuable resource to build on the school readiness skills that are basic to our program and provide addi tional opportunities for parents to be involved in their childrens learning. The 8 backpack sets include 16 dif ferent backpacks that cover literacy, mathematics, science, health and nutrition. The sets include charts for teachers to track use of the back packs and childrens progress. We have received a lot of positive feedback from parents and teachers on the backpacks. They are a great addition to the take home learning activities that we already provide. The backpacks have been a real plus in reinforcing the school readiness skills children need as they enter Kindergarten. We are very grateful Altrusa chose us to receive the grant. Altrusas commitment to early liter acy and community involvement fits together perfectly with our programs mission to provide comprehensive early childhood services and parent involvement. Suwannee Valley 4Cs is a nonprofit corporation and the area grantee for Head Start and Early Head Start. The agency provides comprehensive early childhood services to 494 chil dren from birth to age 5 at 10 centers in Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee counties.


Q Phil Hudgins is senior editor of Community Newspapers Inc. G rape Nuts is my cereal of choice. The late Euell Gibbons said the crunchy nuggets are good for a person, and I believed him. My wife said she’d just as soon eat pea grav-el from the roadside. Gibbons also said that yarrow is healthful. It makes a nice tea and is considered to be a love charm. If the fed-eral government hears about its charming powers, how-ever, the FDA will step in and require that buyers register as yarrow users. My wife loves this plant. She had yarrow in her flower bed at one time, but I cut it down with a weed whacker. I thought it was a weed. Older and somewhat wiser, I know now that love comes in many forms. Sometimes it looks like a weed. I learned a little about plants from the late Marie Mellinger, who led nature lovers through hills and valleys, naming prac-tically every plant as she went. She wrote a book, “Roadside Rambles,” a guide for folks brave enough to eat wild edi-bles. I keep it in our tiny read-ing room for quick reference. Speaking of wild edibles, my daddy said he broke his arm eating breakfast during the Great Depression. He fell out of a persimmon tree. We have a persimmon tree in our yard, just in case. It looked dead a few years ago, but mirac-ulously rose again, like a phoe-nix from the ashes. The fruit is edible but not very tasty; even the dogs won’t eat it. But it’s another form of love, growing outside our kitchen window. I remember stomping maypops when I was a boy. I thought that was their only purpose: to be popped. But Marie’s book suggests you slice them and simmer for five minutes. Strain, add lemon juice and sugar and serve over ice with lemon slices and mint. Maypops, by the way, come from the passion flower vine, but don’t tell Uncle Sam. And then you have blackberries and their first cousin, dewberries. I don’t have to tell you how much love is packed into blackberries. When Earl Palmer’s Uncle Ralph Deaton died, one of his relatives walked around his casket three times while toting a blackberry cobbler and, sure enough, Uncle Ralph didn’t sit up. So they closed the casket and bur-ied him. They weren’t being cute or cruel. They were just following Ralph’s instructions. Two other wild edibles, hips and haws—not to be confused with hems and haws, which is what politicians specialize in—will enhance your mood, in case you’re in a bad one. They’re used for tea and syr-ups and can be candied for special treats. Hips come from roses, haws from hawthorn trees. Use one or the other. Ingesting hips and haws at the same time might cause your mood to overswing. So there. I’ve given you a short lesson on some lovely edibles found in the hills and valleys and on roadsides. For convenience, though, you might try Grape Nuts. Or pea gravel. On peagravel, Grape Nuts ONE OPINION S pokespeople and pun-dits stick their foot in it all the time. But rarely do we see public rela-tions heavy artillery brought out to do damage con-trol to the extent provoked by Hilary Rosen’s recent remark that Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.” President Barack Obama himself responded to this: “It was the wrong thing to say.” First lady Michelle Obama tweeted, repudiating Rosen: “Every mother works hard and every woman deserves to be respected.” Clearly, Rosen’s short verbal assault on Ann Romney was something the Obama campaign apparatus saw as a very serious problem. But why? It seems ridiculous to think that women, married and at home or otherwise, would change their vote based on this relatively trivial observation. Veteran Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg called this “nothing story” and predicted it would have no effect on how women vote in this election. But no one can accuse the Obama political machine of being dumb. Quite the opposite. So, again, how to explain the high-level, PR damage-control barrage to clean up the per-ceived mess made by Rosen? Here’s the real problem that I believe they saw. The issue was not so much what Hilary Rosen said, but who said it. More than Rosen’s words, her persona itself is an assault on working-class, traditional-thinking Americans of both sexes. Rosen, who works closely with the White House, is a lesbian, high-dollar, “inside-the-beltway” Washington power broker. She and her former partner, Elizabeth Birch, the former executive director of the Human Rights Campaign -an organization championing rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders -adopted two black children. Her current lesbian partner is Randi Weisgarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers -the nation’s second largest teachers’ union. At a time when it is critical for Obama to gain support and confidence of the same middle-of-the-road white working-class Americans who swung over to him in 2008, the last thing he needs is to have Rosen become a poster child for his party. She has earned millions, The Daily Reporter blog noted after obtaining her tax records, in the very influence-peddling and power-brokering business that Obama campaigned that he would purge from Washington. Her lifestyle embodies and boldly conveys the view that traditional American values and the traditional American family should no longer be considered “the way” but one of many pos-sible legitimate lifestyle choices. Obama was elected president in 2008 by voters unhappy with the Republican Party and unhappy with the status quo in Washington. He sold himself as a new kind of politician -a fresh, new beginning. But now he has a record and it is not pretty. And that same record points clearly to the fact that this is a man of the hard left, who heads a party of the left. But his big problem is that he needs to be re-elected in a country that is right of center. The most recent Gallup polling on this shows that 40 percent of Americans self-identify as con-servative, 35 percent as moder-ate, and 21 percent as liberal. It has never been clearer that there is indeed a liberal America and a conservative America, and that today’s big question is which will define what will be the United States of America. The president and his party have a huge political challenge to continue the shell game with voters and obscure the fact that they stand for liberal, left wing America and that Hilary Rosen does indeed typify their party. It’s why Rosen’s remarks and sudden high profile provoked political panic in the White House. Obama’s real problem with Hilary Rosen LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:I was disgusted by the aritcle on the front page of today’s paper – Watergate figure Colson dies” – and the fact that, except for a brief reference to his founding of Prison Fellowship Ministries, the entire report concerned his connection to the ill-conceived machinations sur-rounding the attempts to gain intellgence on the Democratic Party. He served less than a year in prison. Altogether the entire episode of his wrong-doing and penalizaton was confined to less than three years of his life. A life that henceforth brought uncountable relief to thousands of prisoners here and abroad through his guidance of Prison Fellowship. Over the ensu-ing nearly four decades he was awarded many citations of approval for his efforts, includ-ing the Templeton Prize. Some of your younger readers may not have any idea of what Watergate was all about. I well know the history of that time in this nation’s politics, and like many others, I was sickened by it. But the transfor-mation that came over Chuck Colson while in prison brought about many historic changes in the lives of those he and Prison Fellowship touched over these past decades. This part of a truly good man’s life was ignored in your article.

Marco Rubio of Florida has broken with his party’s lockstep march to the right on immigration and, in doing so, has thrown a political lifeline to his party’s presump-tive presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. While details are lacking and the freshman lawmaker has yet to introduce the actual bill, Rubio has proposed allowing young illegal immigrants -who were brought here as children and who have completed high school -to apply for legal sta-tus that would allow them to remain in the U.S., work and get a driver’s license. He does not lay out a path to citizenship, unlike the Democrats’ proposed DREAM Act, which does so for young illegal immigrants who serve in the military or pursue at least a bachelor’s degree in college. Immigration hard-liners dismissed Rubio’s proposal as “a two-step process of amnesty.” It’s hardly amnesty, but once given permanent residency, the now-legal young immigrants would presumably be free to apply for citizenship. Those details have yet to be supplied -and given how explosive the issue is among some Republicans, Rubio would be well advised to keep his plan vague. Romney has said flatly that all illegal immigrants should leave. He proposed a database that would make it impossible for them to get jobs, the idea being they would just give up and get out -“self-deport,” in his words. Rubio, a Cuban-American, is offering Romney some help he may need, because Hispanics are increasingly a key swing vote, especially in many of the battleground states like Rubio’s Florida. A Pew Research Center poll this week showed Obama ahead of Romney among Hispanic voters, 67 percent to 27 percent.

Whether you are a Christian or not choosing Obama has already been a disaster for this country!! Social Security is really not an entitlement as the government would have you think. You paid into it and if the government had not put it into the general fund there would be plenty for all of those WHO PAID INTO IT to get what was rightfully theirs in the first place. The government cannot not give you anything monetarily without first taking it from someone else either in taxes or just plain confiscating it. The government has no money of its own WE THE PEOPLE give it to them in the form of taxes which they therein squander it on programs as they see fit. In Obama’s case he has squandered TRILLIONS during his first term and some of you want him to keep squan-dering!! Please – take your show on the road with him – my insurance has gone up since he has been in office and if this OBAMA care is held by the Supreme Court then you and I will have the government telling us if we can afford to live or die. Soooooooo, please get off the Christian gambit and use your head...Obama gives you nothing he doesn’t take from someone else first!!

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comKEYSTONE HEIGHTS — Good pitching and time-ly hitting continue to carry Fort White High baseball, and this time it is to the District 5-4A tournament semifinals. Fort White beat host Keystone Heights High, 4-0, on Monday. Fort White advances to play Williston High at 7 p.m. today. Kevin Dupree and Lane Pendergrast combined for the shutout. Dupree pitched five hitless inning before giving way to Pendergrast after a lead-off triple by Robbie Rossano in the sixth inning. Dupree walked five and struck out five. Pendergrast got out the inning without a run with the help of catcher Bryce Beach who threw out his second runner of the game trying to steal second base. Pendergrast did not allow a hit. He walked four and struck out three. Pendergrast was clutch at the plate. He produced two-out RBI-singles in the fourth and sixth innings. In the fifth, Brandon Myers reached on an error and stole second before Pendergrast delivered. In the sixth inning Robby Howell had an infield sin-gle. Kodey Owens pinchran and stole second, as Cody Moniz walked. Moniz followed Owens to the plate on and outfield error. Bryce Beach scored Fort White’s first run after a lead-off single in the first inning. By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. The last 901.5 miles at NASCAR’s top level have been quick and clean, the kind of races where a team can tinker on the car the entire day and not worry about artificial on-track action ruining a strong run. It’s a racer’s dream, but it’s apparently a fan’s nightmare. By DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressKANSAS CITY, Kan. — It seemed as if Denny Hamlin was out for a Sunday afternoon drive at Kansas Speedway, hanging around the leaders most of the day but never really giving any-body too much reason to worry. Turned out that Hamlin was playing possum, just as he did at Phoenix earlier this year. His team kept making slight adjustments on every stop and had his Toyota dialed in late in the race when Hamlin charged past Martin Truex Jr. for the lead. He then held off Truex’s last-ditch move with two laps remaining to win for the second time this season. “It felt a lot like Phoenix in the sense of we kind of hung around the top five all day,” said Hamlin, who was third at Kansas last year. “At the end we just kind of make our charge, make our run, and there were some things that had to happen the last run really for us to work out, and those things happened.” The victory gave his Joe Gibbs Racing team some momentum heading to Richmond, where the Virginia driver has won twice before — and where he certainly won’t sneak up on anybody. By MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE— When asked what Jacksonville’s top need is heading into the NFL draft, general manager Gene Smith was quick to respond. “Talent,” he said.No doubt, the Jaguars are lacking it on both sides of the ball. And that makes this week’s three-day draft, which begins Thursday night, pivotal for a rebuild-ing franchise that has missed the playoffs 10 of the last 12 years. The Jaguars have the seventh pick in the first round, their fifth consecutive year with a top-10 selection. What they do with it is anyone’s guess. The Jaguars, though, have made it clear they would like to trade down from No. 7 and acquire extra picks. They have fielded calls for weeks about poten-tial swaps, but no deal will be made until draft night. “We’ve already received more phone calls this year than any other year,” per-sonnel director Terry McDonough said. “There’s some jockeying going on.” If the Jaguars stay put, expect them to select a pass rusher or a receiver. Although Jacksonville re-signed defensive end Jeremy Mincey in free agency, the team did nothing else to upgrade a D-line that has some glaring holes. Defensive end Aaron Kampman has missed 15 games over the last two seasons because of knee injuries, a bad sign for a 32-year-old player. Defensive tackle D’Anthony Smith, a third-round pick in 2010, hasn’t played a down in two years. Tyson Alualu, John Chick and Austen Lane also are coming off injuries. And there’s defensive end Terrance Knighton, who will miss the major-ity of the offseason follow-ing unplanned eye surgery. Knighton, who has battled weight issues throughout his career, was struck in the face during a bar fight earlier this month. The Jaguars could draft South Carolina’s Melvin Ingram or Mississippi State’s Fletcher Cox to help bolster the D-line. Ingram is considered the best edge rusher in the draft, and Cox is considered the top tackle.

Kirkman is with Round Rock Express, the Texas Ranger’s Triple-A farm club in the Pacific Coast League. He was in spring training with the Rangers, but started the season at Round Rock. Kirkman was struggling as a reliever this season. In 5 23 innings in five appearances, he had given up 12 hits and has an ERA of 11.12. Round Rock gave Kirkman a start against Omaha on Friday. Kirkman pitched three shutout innings with two hits, three walks and two strikeouts. He faced 13 batters and threw 50 pitches, 27 for strikes. The Express won the game 2-1, though Kirkman was not involved in the decision. Kirkman was PCL Pitcher of the Year as a starter in 2010. He was brought up to bullpen for the Rangers and pitched in the 2010 World Series. He spent several weeks last season in the Texas bullpen.

Three of the last four Sprint Cup races have been accident-free, which has reignited the age-old debate: Do fans prefer racing or wrecking? Based on feedback five-time champion Jimmie Johnson has heard of late, he knows the answer and seems to disagree with the popular opinion. “It seems like crashing to most is more important than racing,” Johnson tweeted Monday morning, adding his disapproval for the sentiment. NASCAR finds itself in a conundrum following this unusually clean stretch of racing. The on-track product is pure, and there’s been no room for gimmicks or manufactured action during the races. It’s what racing is supposed to be, and it gives teams the opportunity to let the race come to them. More times than not, in those kind of races, it’s the best car celebrating in Victory Lane. But it’s action and drama that draws attention, and if you don’t believe that, rewind to Juan Pablo Montoya crashing into a jet dryer in the season-opening Daytona 500. The accident, ensuing explosion and raging fuel fire drew worldwide headlines and gave NASCAR the literal spark it needed to start the season. Some of the most memorable moments of last season stemmed from crashes or conflict: An ongoing feud between Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick led to a pit-road confrontation at Darlington, Brian Vickers was involved in five of seven accidents at Martinsville, the road-course race at Sonoma resembled a demolition derby and featured intentional wrecking between Vickers and Tony Stewart. There were plenty of shouting matches from Boris Said calling Greg Biffle “a scaredy-cat” while promising to deliver “a whooping” at Watkins Glen, and Johnson and Kurt Busch had to be separated during a jawing match on pit road at Pocono. But here we are, eight races into a new season, and nobody is fighting on or off the track. It’s so quiet, the only driver to even elicit an emotional response from fans was poor David Reutimann, who drew the ire of NASCAR Nation when he failed to get his disabled car off the track at Martinsville to cause a caution that altered the outcome of the race. Aside from a lack of compelling drama, NASCAR is also short on accidents of late. There have been only five crashes in the last four races, and all of them came in the April 1 race at Martinsville. Even Bristol, a track infamous for its bumping and banging, was sterile. Although all five cautions were for accidents, only one involved multiple cars and the race featured an unheard of 219-lap green-flag run. Then came Sunday’s race at Kansas, and it was yet another polite affair.


DEAR ABBY: Two weeks ago I got a memo-rial tattoo done for my beloved grandma. It’s on my arm and says “in lov-ing memory” at the top. Gram’s portrait is under-neath, and a beautiful poem my grandpa wrote for her is under the por-trait. The tattoo artist did a phenomenal job! It looks just like her and I was thrilled with the results. The problem is, I posted a picture on Facebook of the tattoo, and out of the blue a distant cousin sent me a message telling me that the tattoo was “self-ish and attention-seeking behavior”! He said he was hurt in more ways than one because of it. Abby, I don’t understand. I love this tattoo. I wanted to honor the woman who meant so much to me. Did I honor her the wrong way like he says? Was I selfish? I’m so hurt, I guess I’m just looking for some input into this. My friends and family say he’s jealous and not to give it another thought, but I’m obsessing. Please help. -HONORING GRANDMA DEAR HONORING GRANDMA: Please accept my sympathy for your obviously heartfelt loss. Your family and friends are correct that your cousin’s comments are out of line. You are not responsible for your cousin’s feelings, so stop obsessing. Whatever has hurt him “in more ways than one” is not your tattoo, or anything you posted on Facebook. You say he is distant. Keep it that way and con-centrate on something positive like the fact that you have honored your grandmother’s memory. Then go on and build a happy and constructive life. I’m sure that is what she would want you to do. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My neighbors’ teenage sons ask to borrow our lawn mower and other yard tools so they can make money cut-ting the grass for other neighbors. What do we do? -LOVE THY NEIGHBOR DEAR NEIGHBOR: How responsible are the boys? If they can be trust-ed with your lawn mower and other yard tools and you’re kind-hearted, allow them to use the items with the understanding that they will be returned to you in the same condition in which they were bor-rowed. Then have them cut YOUR lawn as a way of showing their appreciation. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My co-worker “Oscar” is a grouchy, bitter man. His cubicle is close to mine, so I can hear everything he says. He constantly talks about other employees and even about the owners of the company. Oscar’s general bitterness and poor attitude constantly bring me down. I have tried tun-ing him out, unsuccess-fully. I don’t like being subjected to this daily, but I don’t know what I can do about it. Please help. -NEEDS POSITIVITY IN LEXINGTON, KY. DEAR NEEDS POSITIVITY: The first thing you should do is tell Oscar that you can hear every word he’s saying because he may not know that he’s being overheard. Tell him his conversations are distracting and ask him to stop. If he does not com-ply, complain to a supervi-sor. And if your complaint is not acted upon, bring headphones, if it’s allowed, so you won’t be subjected to the daily dose of nega-tivity. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get back to basics and what you do best. Don’t take anyone’s word for it; do your own research. Love and romance are on the rise, and turning a friendship into something more serious can benefit you in many ways. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Size up your situation and look for ways to pick up additional skills, knowl-edge and information that will help turn an idea into a lucrative venture. Taking action and discuss-ing plans with someone to whom you are emotionally tied will pay off. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll charm someone important with your quick wit and unusual approach to solving problems. Emotions will surface, giv-ing others a chance to see how passionate and sin-cere you can be. Channel your energy into personal improvements. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Now is not the time to share your plans. Someone is likely to intervene and ruin a surprise you have for someone special. Too much talk and not enough action will lead to trouble and an unexpected change of plans. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll attract attention with your charm and passionate response. Make a change if you think it will help you get what you want. You will learn easily and should spend time with people who have something inter-esting to offer. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Not everyone will be eager to do things your way, so do your own thing and allow others the same privilege. Using force will end up working against you. A challenge will require your undivided attention. Networking will be necessary. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will learn a lot from the people you are close to. Observe what others do and say and you will have a better handle on what you can do to get ahead. Expect a partner-ship to go through chang-es. Love is highlighted. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put more empha-sis on what you can do. Speculating or offering something that may or may not actually manifest will damage your reputa-tion. Do your due diligence before taking action. Networking will help you attract a worthwhile pro-posal. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be torn between what you should do and what you want to do. Putting time and effort into your home and family will strengthen important personal relationships. Offering your services at a premium will help you advance. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Opportunities and success are earned, and if you put greater effort into getting what you want right now, you will be suc-cessful. Open your doors to people who have some-thing to contribute, and mastermind what you want to achieve. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Put more empha-sis on home, family and getting your place in order. Money can be made, con-tracts signed and deals put into place. Love is highlighted, and romanc-ing someone you want to be with forever should be your goal. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t trust anyone with your personal secrets. Bide your time and keep a close watch over any personal situation you face. Keep your distance from anyone making impossible promises. Uncertainty should be your warning to retreat. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Niblack steppers take first place COURTESY PHOTO By JOSH DUBOWAP Sports WriterSAN FRANCISCO — When Rachel Cho decided at the beginning of her senior year of high school in British Columbia to pursue a collegiate running career in the United States, she hadn’t even heard of Nova Southeastern University in Florida. Less than six months later she accepted a schol-arship offer to the Division II school more than 3,000 miles away. The school and athlete got connected in what has become an increasingly popular fashion, by using the website beRecruited.com. Like a form of online dating to connect inter-ested athletes and schools, beRecruited has brought efficiency to what had been an overwhelming process. “I saw that they looked at my profile and that’s how it all started,” Cho said. “It really streamlined the process. I’m not the most exceptional athlete you’ll see, but I was good enough for Division II. Most peo-ple think it’s hard to get recruited because there are so many athletes out there. This does make it a lot easier.” Many elite athletes, especially in higher-profile sports like football and bas-ketball, still get recruited the old-fashioned way, through tournaments, rela-tionships between coaches and schools and in-per-son scouting. But Internet recruiting services are a boon to athletes in sports like swimming, volleyball and track, as well as those seeking opportunities to play football or basketball at lower-level schools. “We are for the 99 percent, not the 1 percent,” said Vishwas Prabhakara, the CEO of beRecruited. Founded by former Duke swimmer Ryan Spoon in 2000 as an attempt to streamline recruiting in swimming and diving for athletes and coaches, the service expanded to other sports and has been grow-ing rapidly ever since. The site serves athletes and coaches in 31 sports and has more than 1 million registered users. There are more than 500,000 current high school athletes on the service, with the growth going from about 85,000 members of the class of 2009 to more than 200,000 athletes graduating high school this year. There are athletes from more than 80 percent of all U.S. high schools using the service and about two-thirds of college coaches are registered. The growth has been fueled in part by the fact that registration for ath-letes is free, compared to the hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars some recruiting services charge. Students can pay $60 to find out what coaches have looked at their profile. “It was a really great way to communicate to colleges and see which ones look at me instead of me just reaching out to college coaches,” said Nikki Bond, a basketball player from Vancouver, Wash., who will play next season for Corban University in Oregon. “It made it simple. It’s hard to talk to college coaches all the time on the phone. You can take 10 minutes out of the day and see every single coach who bookmarked or looked at your page.
