ASSOCIATED PRESSFlorida Highway Patrol Troopers inspect the damage from a multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 75 near Gainesville in January. The Florida Highway Patrol is releasing a report on the fogand smoke-shrouded Interstate 75 crash that killed 11 people. Report: Troopers erred before I-75 crashesBy BILL KACZOR and BRENDAN FARRINGTONAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE A Florida Highway Patrol sergeant opposed reopening a fogand smokeshrouded interstate highway, but he was overruled by a higher-ranking officer shortly before a series of crashes killed 11 people, state investigators said in a report released Thursday. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement concluded state troopers made errors but found no criminal violations. Early in the morning of Jan. 29, wildfire smoke mixed with fog blanketed six-lane Interstate 75 near Gainesville where it cut through Paynes Prairie State Park, a low area that lacks billboards or other lighting. Highway Patrol Sgt. Bruce Simmons was wanted to keep the highway closed, but Lt. John Gourley gave the order to reopen it because visibility had improved. Gourley was worried keeping the highway closed also would be dangerous. Within 30 minutes of the highway reopening, the first of six separate fatal crashes began, involving at least a dozen cars, pickup trucks and a van, six semitrailer trucks and a motorhome. Some vehicles burst into flames, making it difficult to identify the dead. Eighteen other victims were hospitalized. Simmons used some rural slang in telling a sheriffs deputy, in a conversation recorded on the troopers in-car video equipment, that he argued against reopening it: I tried to tell them to leave that sumbuck closed and they wouldnt listen to me. I said it will roll in faster than you can shut it down, Simmons continued. This crap wouldnt have happened if hed have listened. Gourley told investiga tors he was unaware of any specific policy or procedure and never received any formal training on opening or closing roads. He did not immediately respond to a telephone message left at the Highway Patrols Gainesville office seeking comment Thursday. A home phone listing for him could not be found. The report faulted the Highway Patrol for failing to create effective guidelines for such situations and said troopers did not adequately share critical information among themselves just before the crashes occurred. They never consulted technical specialists with the Forestry Service or National Weather Service. Once traffic resumed flowing, the Highway Patrol failed to actively monitor the highway conditions, the report said. It noted that Gourley left I-75 to patrol U.S. 441 while Simmons and another trooper took a meal break. A fourth trooper was parked writing a report and fifth was at his off-duty job working security at a rest area. Simmons twice told Gourley about the potential for poor visibility to return. Gourley, though, was worried that keeping the highway closed would result in secondary crashes based on his prior experience investigating such wrecks. Other factors in his decision were that U.S. 441, the major detour route, also was closed and the only alternative was a twolane road through a small town that couldnt handle CRASH continued on 3AFallen heroes to be salutedCeremony to honor firefighters, corrections officer.

Rick Scott to help them ban concealed weapons outside the Republican National Convention. The council will send a letter to Scott asking him to consult with the Cabinet and legislative leaders on how to address the public safety issue. We believe it is necessary and prudent to take this reasonable step to prevent a potential tragedy, council member Lisa Montelione said in the draft letter. Scotts press secretary, Lane Wright, said in email to The Associated Press that the governors office is evaluating the options and working with local officials to come up with an appropriate solution. The Florida Legislature passed a law last year preventing cities and counties from passing local gun regulations. Tampa officials want Scott to use his executive power to suspend that law during the Aug. 27-30 convention. The Secret Service has previously stated that no one but on-duty law enforcement officers will be allowed to carry guns inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the site of the convention. Tampa officials want that ban extended to an area that covers downtown and a few surrounding areas. Mayor Bob Buckhorn said he also plans to make a similar request to Scott.Citizens board postpones bid to increase ratesTALLAHASSEE The governing board for the state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. at least temporarily backed off a proposal Thursday to begin charging rates for new business next year at rates higher than allowed by law. Although existing Citizens policyholders are protected from large premium increases by a 10 percent statutory cap, the insurer wanted to test what one member described Thursday as an ambiguity in the law to pursue higher rates on customers who contract with the company after Jan. 1, 2013. Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and state Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, were among those cautioning the board Thursday against going ahead with such an increase. The removal of the cap for new business is beyond the scope of legislative intent, Atwater wrote in a terse three-paragraph note to Citizens Board Chairman Carlos Lacasa of Miami. I would urge the board to carefully consider the policy implications.Judge: State worker drug testing unconstitionalMIAMI A federal judge declared Gov. Rick Scotts order requiring drug testing for some 85,000 state workers unconstitutional Thursday, saying the governor showed no evidence of a drug problem at the agencies to warrant suspicionless testing. The ruling marks the second blow to Scotts proposals regarding drug testing. The governor also suspended a state law he supported that required drug testing for welfare recipients last year after a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. A federal judge in Orlando has temporarily blocked that law. The ACLU and a government workers union also filed a lawsuit last year challenging Scotts order to drug test state employees, saying the testing violates the Fourth Amendment by subjecting state workers to an unreasonable search without adequate suspicion that they used drugs. Scott, who suspended drug testing for state employees in June, said he will appeal Thursdays ruling.Bus attendant hurt in Daytona Beach accidentDAYTONAL BEACH Officials say no students were injured when a school bus heading to a Daytona Beach elementary school was rear-ended near an entrance ramp to Interstate 95. Volusia County school district spokeswoman Nancy Wait says a bus attendant on board to help special needs children was taken to the hospital Thursday morning after complaining of pain. The bus driver was not injured in the 8:30 a.m. crash. Wait said 26 children on the bus. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports a parent of a student in a wheelchair requested that the child be taken to the hospital as a precaution.Man dies after firing gun he thought was unloadedTAMPA Hillsborough County Sheriffs deputies say a 19-year-old man died when he fired a round on a handgun that was being passed around by friends in a house near Tampa. Deputies say Taylor J. McKenna was socializing with friends early Thursday when someone showed an unloaded handgun to the group. According to deputies, McKenna didnt realize that someone loaded the gun when he picked it up and fired one round. It struck him in the head, killing him.

Poor health hasnt robbed Gregg Allman of his sense of humor. Just as it seemed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member was finally over the effects of his liver transplant two years ago, hes been forced to delay his upcoming book tour to promote his new memoir, My Cross to Bear, for heart tests. But in a phone interview Thursday afternoon he seemed in good spirits as he described his latest health problem. Its just one of those make-sure tests, you know, Allman said. My heart goes into A Fib (atrial fibrillation) and does those beats you know, instead of going du-dun, dudun, du-dun, it goes ta-da-dat-ta-dadoot-doot. Theres a little reggae in there somewhere. Allman is scheduled to undergo tests Friday at The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. He had a liver transplant due to Hepatitis C at the same clinic in 2010 and has been steadily recovering since, though hes been forced to cancel or postpone performances from time to time because of setbacks. He recently had hernia surgery related to the transplant and says he feels as well as he has in some time. Its unclear if his heart problems are related to the transplant.HBO producing documentary about George H.W. BushNEW YORK HBO is producing a documentary on the first President George Bush to debut two days after his 88th birthday in June. Titled , the film about the 41st president is being produced by Jerry Weintraub, a friend of the Bush family and himself the subject of My Way, another HBO documentary. Jeffrey Roth, who made The Wonder of It All about Apollo moon walkers, is directing and writing the film. It was made between September 2009 and February 2011. HBO said Friday that Bush, father of the 43rd president, shares anecdotes about his youth, various jobs and term as president from 1989 to 1993. Its first airing is on June 14.Pioneering New York disc jockey Fornatale dies at 66NEW YORK Rock music fans are mourning the death of Pete Fornatale, a beloved radio disc jockey who promoted the best new musicians for decades in his easy, free-form style. Fornatale was 66 when he died Thursday in New York. At New Yorks Fordham University, his alma mater, president Joseph McShane called the DJ the voice of several generations who interviewed the hottest musicians and played their new songs. As a DJ on WNEW-FM in the 1970s, his format was to play lesser-known artists and album cuts beyond the hit singles.40 New York City historic sites vie for $3M in grantsNEW YORK The National Trust for Historic Preservation has announced $3 million in grants for preservation projects at 40 New York City historic sites.

Details of the proposed temporary rules, which a state commission may vote on next week, have not been released and thats stirring up concern among festival organizers who fear they could face new costs to comply with the regulations, said Gale Gerber, vice president of the Indiana State Festivals Association. He said many of the 450 festivals and fairs held across Indiana each year operate on shoestring budgets and cannot afford new costs. A lot of these small festivals have budgets under $2,000 or $3,000 to run their festivals. If these rules bring new expenses, theres no way they can handle that, Gerber said. The Indiana Fire Prevention and Building Safety Commission will meet Wednesday to consider the proposed rules, which were prompted by the Aug. 13 collapse of stage rigging that killed seven people and injured dozens before a scheduled Sugarland concert at the State Fair in Indianapolis. State fair organizers werent required to have that rigging inspected because it was a temporary structure not covered under Indiana law.

The keynote address for this years service will be delivered by Ken Tucker, Florida Department of Corrections secretary. This year the Public Safety Memorial Day will also honor three individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice during the past year: Josh O. Burch and Brett L. Fulton with the Florida Forest Service who both died fighting a wildfire on June 20, 2011 and Columbia Correction Institution Sgt. Ruben H. Thomas III who died March 18. Frank Armijo, Lake City Fire Department assistant chief, said Tuesdays service will be the ninth annual Columbia County Public Safety Memorial Day. On behalf of the Lake City Fire Department and Chief Carlton Tunsil, Id like to thank the Columbia County Public Safety Committee members who continue to keep this ceremony going, Armijo said. This years ceremony will include a musical tribute and a presentation of colors by a multi-agency honor guard. Its important to hold this event annually to honor the fallen and respect them and their families, Armijo said. Sadly to report weve had to add three fallen heroes from Columbia County this year. These fallen public safety personnel made the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives protecting the public from harm, thats why we honor and respect them. We want this tradition to continue on. Congress has designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 15 21 as National Police Week. The Columbia County Public Safety Committee designated May 1 as the 2012 Columbia County Public Safety Memorial Day, Armijo said. The Columbia County Public Safety Memorial Day is for the recognition of all public safety agencies in the public safety family that are serving in the community to pay our respects to those who gave their all and unselfishly made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live in a safer community, he said. Armijo also noted why the service is important to him as a first responder. The service brings to light for all agencies the dangers and the risks of our professions that weve chosen as a career to protect the public, he said. It shows the respect and honors the 15 Columbia County public safety personnel.

He also worried that directing drivers onto unfamiliar roads in the early morning hours would be hazardous. Col. David Brierton, the Highway Patrols director, said in a statement that he was still reviewing the report with the agencys inspector generals office and would respond in the next few weeks. As a result of our own after-action review, the Patrol is already making some changes, to include training and protocol changes, Brierton said. He said his agency would continue to work with the state Department of Transportation and Florida Forestry Service to implement best practices. Its too early to consider disciplinary action, said Courtney Heidelberg, spokeswoman of the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, which includes the Highway Patrol. She noted the department asked for an outside investigation, which then was ordered by Gov. Rick Scott. The Highway Patrol also is conducting a homicide investigation, which is expected to be completed in mid-May, Heidelberg said. The report recommends the Highway Patrol clarify procedures in its policy manual and adopt mandatory protocols rather than merely suggesting guidelines. It also calls for the state to improve roadway warning signage. The Florida Legislature already has appropriated $4 million for visibility evaluation equipment and signage to alert travelers on all Florida interstates. The Department of Transportation has entered one contract with the University of Central Florida and is planning another with Florida State University to research equipment and forecasting procedures. The victims included five people in a van returning to Kennesaw, Ga., from an Orlando church retreat: 43-year-old pastor Jose Carmo Jr., his wife, Arianna, 39, and their 17-year-old daughter, Leticia, as well as Carmos 38-year-old brother, Edson, and his girlfriend, Roselia DeSilva, 41. Alonso Olivera, a friend of the Carmos, who were originally from Brazil, didnt want to talk about the report. Olivera, though, said another daughter, 15-year-old Lidiane Carmo, who survived the crash, is still undergoing physical therapy three times a week but is no longer in the hospital. He said shes also still dealing with the emotional effects of the crash. Seventeen-year-old Sabryna Hughes Gilley died with her father, Michael Hughes, 39, and her stepmother, Lori Lynne Brock-Hughes, 46, in a pickup truck. They were on their way from Pensacola to Sarasota for a relatives funeral. Vontavia Robinson, 22, of Williston died when his car crashed into the back of another pickup that had slammed into a semi stopped in the middle southbound lane. Jason Lee Raikes, 26, and his girlfriend, Christie Diana Nguyen, 27, were killed when their Toyota Matrix crashed in the northbound lanes. Raikes had moved to Gainesville from Richmond, Va., a year earlier to be with Nguyen.CRASH: Troopers erred before tragedy on I-75Continued From Page 1A ing advisory committee composed of registered voters in Columbia County was passed to public hearing. The committee would serve to advise the Board of County Commissioners during the redistricting process as well as set timelines for action. The commission motioned to move an amendment to public hearing to add two atlarge seats to the county commission. The at-large seats would be staggered so that a new commissioner would be elected every two years. If the amendment were to pass, the commissioners would be elected in 2014. During the initial term, one commissioner would serve a two-year term and the second would serve four years. Elections held thereafter would be held every four years. An amendment giving authority to the county commission to control the employment and duties of the county attorney will also be presented at the public hearing. The county attorney is currently an elected position. Columbia County is the only county with an elected county attorney in the state. Two additional public hearings will be held on May 24 and June 5 at the School Board Administrative Complex. At the June 5 meeting, the commission will vote whether to include the amendments in the countys charter.REVIEW: Public hearings set to start on May 10Continued From Page 1A US 90 4-lane project gets good receptionBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Florida Department of Transportation project to improve traffic flow on the U.S. 90 corridor west of town by expanding the roadway to four lanes appeared to be welcomed by area residents and business owners. Gina Busscher, DOT District 2 public information director, said most people wanted to know why it took so long. The Florida Department of Transportation held an open forum and a public comment period Thursday night to discuss the project where U.S. Highway 90 will become a four-lane roadway from Northwest Lake City Avenue west to Brown Road. About 30 people registered at the meeting, which was held at the Comfort Inn and Suites. No public comments were voiced during the public comment period because most residents and business officials spoke with DOT officials on entering the room and left the meeting once their questions had been answered. We held the meeting to familiarize the residents and business owners in the area of our upcoming plans to reconstruct U.S. 90 from Lake City Avenue to Brown Road, Busscher said. The stretch of road to get the improvements is approximately 1.3 miles long. The cost of the project is estimated to be around $15 million. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2013, possibly in January, and is expected to take 550 days roughly a year and a half. This is going to be a very complicated project because were converting it from a two-lane road with ditches to a roadway that will be fourlaned with a raised median, bicycle lanes, sidewalks and an underground drainage system where all the water will be funneled down to a 22-acre pond off Pinemount Road, Busscher said. The project also calls for improvement work at the intersections of Brown, Turner and Pinemount roads, as well as the addition of a traffic signal at Lake City Avenue. DOT officials said the project is being done based on increasing traffic counts, roadway maintenance, and the number of accidents on the roadway based on a study to expand the roadway about 10 years ago. According to a DOT annual traffic count conducted last year, 26,000 vehicles per day use the stretch of roadway west of the I-75 ramp that will be improved. However, west of County Road 252, the traffic count goes down to 20,300 vehicles per day. In addition to providing information about the project, Busscher said DOT personnel learned that when they are ready to begin the project, they should contacts residents again to make sure they are aware of it. We have a few areas where we need to go back and look at with our design team to make sure were accommodating the traf fic flow, she said. Even though the project doesnt start until early 2013, were still going to be doing some utility work between now and then. DOT officials also unveiled plans for another project, scheduled for at least two years in the future, in which officials plan to make improvements at the I-75 interchange on U.S. 90. Were going to move some traffic signals around to make traffic flow better, Busscher said.

Counties challenge Medicaid pay lawScott keeps tuition pledgeTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott must decide whether he wants to let two major universities raise tuition higher than what is currently allowed. Scott is expected on Friday to either sign or veto a bill that would let the University of Florida and Florida State University increase tuition rates above the current 15 percent a year cap. Scott earlier this week said he remained undecided on the bill (HB 7129). But several times this year Scott has said he does not support raising tuition at this time. The governor did sign a budget, however, that allows Florida colleges to raise tuition five percent. Supporters of the bill contend the extra tuition money will allow UF and FSU to compete nationally with other well-known public universities in North Carolina, Virginia and Michigan.By BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE The Florida Association of Counties and 47 individual counties sued the state on Thursday to challenge a new Medicaid law thats expected to cost local taxpayers millions. The new law will require counties to pay more than $300 million in disputed billings owed to the state-federal health care program for lowincome and disabled people. Counties are required to pay a share of the expenses for their residents. The lawsuit, which was filed in Tallahassees state circuit court, contends the counties are being made to pay for rampant errors by Floridas electronic billing system. The laws supporters say the counties simply are trying to avoid paying their fair share. Through this error-ridden scheme, the state is coercing counties into paying for lawfully time-barred back bills, as well as new Medicaid obligations, that cannot rightfully be traced to their communities, the counties lawyers wrote in the lawsuit.
O nce again, I did not bring an umbrella. Or a coat. Or a hat or scarf or gloves or snow boots. Or a rope to tie down my goat. For the record, I dont own a goat. Its an expression I grew up with. Where I come from, if winds exceed average velocity, its time, figuratively speaking, to go out and tie down your goat. Even if you dont own one. I am a meteorological mag net for unseasonable weather. I should be a travel icon on www.weather.com. Before going any where, you could click on me to determine whether, God help you, I might be going there, too. In which case, you should can cel your plans and stay the heck at home. If you must go, at least, go prepared: Pack warm clothing. Say goodbye to your loved ones. And take a minute to update your will. Ive attracted dust storms in the desert. Torrential rains in Mexico. Tornadoes in Indiana. Hurricanes in the South. And enough snow to make Santa hang up his boots and put his reindeer out to pasture. Years ago, I was assigned by the newspaper I worked for, to host readers on a cruise through the Mediterranean. All was well until the night we were beset by an unexpected storm with 90-mph winds and 25-foot seas. Waves were so rough I was tossed, I swear, out of bed. Twice. Folks were sick as dogs. Remarkably, no one com plained. Either they didnt know about my reputation for attracting foul weather or were too busy throwing up. You would think by now, know ing what I know, that Id never leave home without an umbrella and a life vest. What can I say? Some of us are slow to learn. And quick to forget. Truth is, Ive always believed that the mark of a good outing is how little you have to take along. When my children were small, I cultivated friends who were prepared for any possibility -women who owned a vast array of Tupperware and would pack for a simple outing to the park like pioneers crossing the prairie in a covered wagon. I liked those women a lot. Most anything I needed, I could count on them to pack. They made my life much easier. But we can never truly be prepared for everything. Not weather. Not people. Not life. Why not skip all the heavy lift ing and travel light? I just spent a few days speaking in Bristol, Tenn., and Bristol, Va., two cities divided by a state line, but united by a lot of good people. When I arrived, it was cloudy, but balmy, typical late-April weather. By nightfall, the forecast was rain mixed with snow, gusty winds and near-freezing tempera tures. I put on everything in my suit case and sat on the heater in my hotel room, watching rain flecked with snow make little pockmarks on the pool. But weather didnt hamper the turnout or dampen the spirit at the cities Mayors Awards of Distinction ceremony, or at the gathering the next day at the public library, a wonderful facility shared by both cities. People showed up smiling, as they always do, to welcome a stranger to their midst and make her feel right at home. I have learned to rely on the kindnesses of strangers, to bask in their warmth and take shelter in all that we share in common, and to be reminded, lest I ever forget, that we are far more alike than we are different in the every day matters of the heart. But it probably wouldnt hurt me to pack an umbrella. And maybe a pair of socks. L et there be no mis-take about how the Obama administra-tion views its regula-tory role. Americas oil and gas producers are under siege from agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and its hitting consumers in their pocket-books. According to one of President Obamas top appoin-tees at the agency, this is delib-erate. EPA Region 6 administra-tor Al Armendariz instructed his enforcement staff to apply a rather brutal general phi-losophy when dealing with the fossil-fuels industry. It was kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean, Mr. Armendariz explained at a meeting in 2010. Theyd go into a little Turkish town some-where, theyd find the first five guys they saw, and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years. Mr. Obama appointed Mr. Armendariz to run the EPAs efforts in the south-central region of the country, which includes the oil-rich states of Texas and Oklahoma. Sooner State Republican Sen. James M. Inhofe took to the Senate floor Wednesday to announce an oversight investigation into how Mr. Armendariz was imple-menting this strategy to block hydraulic fracturing, or frack-ing, which is the most promis-ing technique for extracting domestic oil and gas resources. Mr. Inhofe thinks Range Resources Corp. is the most outrageous example of an innocent rounded up by the EPA to send a message. The firm uses fracking to provide affordable and clean energy, which undercuts the Obama administrations push for windmills and solar panels. On Dec. 7, 2010, EPA faxed a letter to Range Resources asserting that an imminent and substantial endangerment to a public drinking water aquifer has occurred arising from the companys operations in Parker County, Texas. This letter was sent at 4 p.m., after a press conference and media blitz by agency staff meant to blame fracking for dangerous conditions at a wealthy land owners private well. EPA threatened $50,000 per day in fines and demanded immediate compliance. The company pointed out that the presence of natural gas in water wells in the area is because of geology, not drill ing. High levels of methane were found naturally in water long before the company had any operations in the area. A federal district judge and a state agency agreed there was no imminent danger because the well had been shut down. When the case landed before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year, judges during oral argu ments kept asking Justice Department and EPA repre sentatives, Where was the due process? for the company. The agency realized it couldnt win, and the case was dis missed on April 2. EPA issued no press release highlighting the fracking exoneration. They hope they can admit they were wrong quietly, Mr. Inhofe said. But were not going to let them get away with it. Americans might not be happy should they learn by November that such sordid tactics are contributing to their pain at the pump.

Is your to-do list a too-much-to-do list? Why not do a little spring cleaning? No, not your house, but how about spring cleaning your life? You can start by making some decisions. What do you want to keep in your life, and what do you want to chuck? Divide your life activities into three piles or categories: The keeper pile. What activities or interests are impor tant to you, that you want to keep, and use regularly? The save for later pile. What do you need to put in stor age a written plan, or a note on your calendar, with plans that youll want to use it sometime this year? The throw it out pile. What would you rather pitch out, and remove from your calendar and your daily schedule forever? This category might be old hab its, clutter in your life, or things in your life you arent going to use. How do you choose the keepers? These might be activities for your career, hob bies, sports, and interests, friendships. Do you enjoy read ing a book, drawing, walking the dog? How about a weekly golf game, visiting friends, taking a class, or learning new job skills? Do you enjoy riding a horse, going fishing, singing in the choir, connecting with friends on Facebook or Twitter, or hav ing dinner with friends? Make time for those activities in your life that you find valuable or important, or things that bring you enjoyment, fulfillment, per sonal growth and development. Dont be too busy for those important priorities in your life. How do you select the save for later pile? You have a vacation scheduled for Labor Day. You want to start getting together with friends for swims this summer, or neighborhood cookouts? Just put these on your annual calendar and act on them when they come up. Register for that fall class when August roles around. How about the pitch out pile? Take a look at the old habits, things in your life that no longer meet your needs or wants. Do you watch too much TV? Are you hoarding useless time-wasters, things that have lost their value to you? Are you storing them or keeping them around for othersthat is, other people want you to do them, but youve lost interest? Are you still doing things that are obsolete, out of habit? Dont save parts of your life that are obsolete, or duplicates. Get organized. Its kind of like organizing your desk, or your closet. Be the boss of your life, and also be your own sec retary. Use an in-box, a desk organizer or calendar, a to-do list. Get a filing cabinet, or set up files in your desk at home. You may want to use your com puter calendar. Dont let lifes adventures and opportunities slip by without a plan. No mat ter what abilities or capabilities you have, make the most out of what youve got to work with in life.

Your comments and ideas are appreciated at email@example.com. I t never hurts, if youre a president seeking re-elec-tion, to visit a college cam-pus and offer up a plan to overcome the students arch-foe. At UNC-Chapel Hill on Tuesday, President Obama played up the Tar Heels and denounced ... not Duke, but student debt. That no-brainer came on a three-campus trip to North Carolina, Colorado and Iowa on which Obama exhorted stu-dents to pressure Congress to keep interest rates on federally subsidized loans from rising on July 1 from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. Hes certainly right that student debt can be a seri-ous opponent of students eco-nomic progress once they leave college. No wonder Republican Mitt Romney joined in the call for Congress to roll back the scheduled interest rate increase. But Democrats and Republicans are, as usual, spar-ring over how to pay the cost of keeping the rate at 3.4 percent, and its not certain Congress will act. So this is one of those (many) times when the public interest demands that the two parties reach agreement, and thats the message representa-tives and senators ought to be hearing and heeding. Equally, though, education administrators need to declare a truce in the nationwide arms race in which schools vie to offer enhanced and expensive amenities that have little to do with learning. And state legisla-tures should place higher prior-ity on maintaining historically modest tuition and fee levels at public universities. Because while its true that subsidized loans enable col-leges to ratchet up costs while sparing students and their families the immediate pain, the far greater cost driver is states (and private institutions) unwillingness to dig deeper to keep costs reasonable in the first place.

The book of Hebrews begins by stating that God is now speaking to mankind through His Son. In times past, God spoke to the people through the prophets in many different ways (Hebrews 1:1). God even used angels to deliver His message. The author of Hebrews gives several reasons why Jesus is superior to angels. The author of Hebrews begins by asking the question, to which one of the angels did God ever refer to as His Son? He then quotes (as he frequently does throughout the book) two Old Testament passages. Jesus, by being a Son of God, is superior to angels. While He was still in the manger, an angel and a multitude of heavenly host praising God worshipped Jesus shortly after His birth (Luke 2:13, 14). Again the Hebrew writer gives two Old Testament passages to demonstrate Jesus is superior to angels because the angels worship Jesus. The third reason the Hebrew writer gives for why Jesus is superior to angels is because God has made His Son a king whose throne will be forever. God has placed a scepter in the hand of Jesus because Jesus loved righteousness and hated lawlessness. Jesus had a part of creating everything from the very beginning. Even though the Heavens are the works of [His] hands (1:10), they will perish but Jesus will not. He will not be destroyed or come to an end (1:12). Jesus will continue to exist after everything which was created has been burned up. The final reasons the Hebrew writer gives for why Jesus is superior to angels is because God has made Jesus His right hand man. Jesus is seating at the right hand of God and God is working to make the enemies of Jesus the footstool for [His] feet (1:13). The question we might raise is, Why would the author go to such lengths to prove Jesus superior to angels? The answer is found at the beginning of chapter two. If the word the angels spoke to the prophets in times past proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense, then the words of God Jesus has delivered will be held to such a high standard. Mankind is not going to be able to avoid the punishment of God just because His message was delivered to mankind by a human being whom God called His Son. When we read the Old Testament we often see that people were punished by God because they did not believe and obey what God had said to them through angels. This should serve as a great example to us that regardless of who the messenger of God is, we should obey what that messenger says, especially when that messenger of God is the Son of God. The author is trying to impress upon us how very important it is for us to listen to the words and message of God that was delivered by Jesus. Jesus is superior to the angels and because He is superior, we need to listen to Him. We will be held accountable for the message of God that Jesus delivered to mankind many centuries ago. Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City area. All Scriptural quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, Holman Bible Publishers, unless otherwise stated.The past few weeks the word Christian has appeared in several publications. It is a word that is used so easily and many who use it seem to have no concept of its meaning. For instance, sometime back I heard a preacher in one of our neighboring towns say He loved living in this town because almost all are Christians, if you dont believe it go to the local Wal-Mart and ask them as they come out. He was implying that most will say they are. What is really meant by Christian, and what is a Christian, and most important, who is a Christian? The Biblical meaning is adherent of Christ. Adhere means to abide by, agree with, attach to, cement toon and on are words that tell us that if we are Christian, we are Christ-like. The disciples were formally called Christians first in Antioch (Acts 11:26). Agrippa recognized that to believe what Paul preached would make him a Christian (Acts 26:28). Peter accepted the name as in itself basis for persecution (I Peter 4:16). Thus gradually a name imposed by Gentiles was adopted by the disciples of Jesus. Some Jews had referred to them as the sect of the Nazarenes (Acts 24:5); and Paul, when a persecutor, as those of the Way (Acts 9:2). The New Testament calls the followers of Christ brethren (Acts 14:2); disciples (Acts 6:1, 2); saints (Acts 9:13; Romans 1:7; I Cor. 1:2); believers (I Timothy 4:12); the church of God (Acts 20:28; those that call upon the name of the Lord (Acts 9:14; Romans 10:12, 13); etc. To the first Christians, their own name mattered not at all: their concern was with the one Name of Jesus Christ (Acts 3:16; 4:10, 12; 5:28). Inevitably, the name which they invoked was given to them: Christians, Christs men. Its New Testament meaning is alone adequate for us. Some articles that appeared in the April Florida Baptist Witness seem to indicate that Christians need to rethink their stand on sin. And sin is anything that transgresses the law of God. Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If it was a sin 500 years ago, it is a sin today. So, how does one become a true Christian? He must first realize that he is a sinner and that his sin has separated him from God and that nothing he can do will fix it, because the penalty for sin is death. Then he must believe with all his being that the Lord Jesus Christ took his sin upon Himself and paid his death penalty for him on the cross. He must believe that God, the Father, accepted the payment for his sin by raising Jesus from the death three days later. That, my friend, is Gods simple plan of salvation! Any religion out there that does not recognize the Jesus of the Bible as Jesus, the Son of God, cannot be called Christian. Islam is not Christian; Buddhism is not Christian; Judaism, Hinduism, Hare Krishna are not Christian. The Bible says that Jesus was born of a virgin, as the Son of God. In other words, He was God in the second person. So, are you a real Christian, in action and not in word only?

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE! Everything in our world revolves around time. In fact, a sense of timing is one of the most important elements determining the success or failure of a project or the resolution of a conflict. We see examples of timing in public issues such as the release of a new movie or album, investing in the stock market, or even a politician announcing his or her candidacy for public office. However, personal issues are also at the mercy of timing. Consider a marriage proposal, a job application, or even a difficult confrontation with a spouse or family membertiming is definitely a consideration in these situations as well! As we rejoin Nehemiah this week, lets look at how God answered Nehemiahs prayer for favor with a dose of perfect timing! Chapter 2 begins with an encounter between Nehemiah and King Artaxerxes occurring in the month of Nisan, which coincides with March on our calendar. A glance back at Chapter One reminds us Nehemiah fasted and prayed for some days during the month of Kislev, what we know as November. Although we arent given the specific details during Nehemiahs four-month wait, one factor could be the law forbidding anyone to come into the Kings presence without being invited, upon penalty of death. (See Esther 4:11) It is also possible King Artaxerxes was traveling and Nehemiah did not serve him during this period, or perhaps the King and Queen were entertaining guests and Nehemiah had no opportunity to speak to them privately. What we observe in Nehemiahs four-month wait is the dependence on the sovereignty of God as well as a respect for those in authority over him. Four months gave Nehemiah time to move past an emotional response to the plight of the exiles living in Jerusalem, and also for God to unfold His plan in Nehemiahs heart and mind. Only when the timing was right did Nehemiah have the ear of the King, and a close look at their conversation reveals Gods favor in this encounter: First, note the Kings attentiveness to Nehemiahs countenance. The Persian Empire was vast and riddled with constant threats of war. Despite this, Artaxerxes was not so distracted with obligations or duties that he overlooked Nehemiahs presence. On the contrary, he observed Nehemiah closely and determined that he was not ill, but grieved. Second, it was Persian law that no one would come into the Kings presence while mourning. Perhaps this law was to keep the reality of suffering outside the palace walls. Regardless, it was dangerous for Nehemiah to display a sad appearance, but as God intervened, the King responded with compassion instead of anger to Nehemiahs sadness of heart. Third, because verse 6 makes a point to record the presence of the Queen, I believe we can ascribe significance to her influence. History records that King Artaxerxes ruled from 465-424 B.C. His predecessor was King Xerxes, who ruled from 486-465 B.C. and was the husband to Queen Esther, a Jewess who risked her life to protect her people from destruction. Surely Esthers legacy of wisdom and bravery promoted good will toward the Jews among the Persians, and Artaxerxes queen would have been highly influenced by Esthers example. Cant you picture her giving the King the slightest of nods across the table? Personally, I believe that authority is one of the biggest elements God uses in our lives concerning timing, and Nehemiah showed great wisdom in waiting for Gods favor to manifest. So, when we ask God to give us favor, especially through another person, lets trust His timing to be perfect, and be ready to move when He opens the door Because Every Heart Matters, Angie Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, Director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences and offers biblical counseling to individuals, couples and families.

By BARRY WILNERAssociated PressNEW YORK Six weeks after saying good-bye to Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts handed Andrew Luck a blue and white jersey and the daunt-ing task of leading a rebuild-ing team as its quarterback for the next decade. Luck couldnt have chosen a tougher act to fol-low all Manning did was win an unprecedented four MVP awards and a Super Bowl for Indy. But many believe he is the most NFL-ready passer to enter the league since Manning went No. 1 overall in 1998. You dont really replace a guy like that, Luck said. You cant. You just try to do the best you can. Obviously, he was my hero growing up. The Colts informed the Stanford quarterback last week that Commissioner Roger Goodell would announce his name first Thursday night. Right behind him was Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner, who was taken second overall by the Washington Redskins. No suspense attached to that pick, either. After being loudly booed at the outset, Goodell told a raucous crowd at Radio City Music Hall that the sea-son begins tonight, so lets kick if off. Then he did, congratulating Luck while the crowd chanted RG3, RG3. Less than an hour before Goodell began the draft, Cleveland and Minnesota pulled off another trade in what would become a vir-tual swap shop. The Browns moved up from fourth to third, to ensure getting running back Trent Richardson of national champion Alabama. Minnesota received picks in the fourth, fifth and seventh rounds. Minnesota then took Southern California offen-sive tackle Matt Kalil, whom the Vikings were expected to take at No. 3 anyway. Indianapolis was the only team in the first seven picks to stay put. After Minnesota took Kalil, Jacksonville jumped By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE After a week of being hot at the plate, Columbia Highs bats cooled off at the wrong time. The Tigers went without a hit until the fifth inning and lost, 3-2, against Stanton Prep in the District 4-6A championship game at Atlantic Coast High. Stanton Prep didnt take long to warm up with the bats, as the Blue Devils got on the board first with back-to-back hits in the sec-ond inning. After a triple by Jack Ogin, J.D. Nixon deliv-ered with a base hit to give the Blue Devils a 1-0 lead. Stanton Prep would reach three runs before Columbia got a hit. In the top of the fourth, Nixon delivered his second RBI-single to score Paul Genners, who reached on a double. The Blue Devils winning run came off a wild throw on a rundown attempt, which allowed Adam Genners to score for the 3-0 lead. Pitching started to slow down for the Blue Devils in the sixth inning and the Tigers loaded the bases after Levi Hollingsworth reached on an error and walks were issued to Jason Plyn and Alex Milton. With the bases loaded, Ryan Thomas took four more balls to score the Tigers first run. Dalton Mauldin then drew the fifth walk of the inning to score Travis Brinkley who was running for Plyn. Relief pitcher Troy Robertson ended the inning with a strikeout. Columbia held strong in the top of the seventh, but in the bottom half long fly balls turned into outs to end the Tigers chances. Alan Espenship started the game for the Tigers and went 4 23 innings, issuing three strikeouts and allow-ing five hits. Jayce Barber didnt allow a run in his 2 13 innings and struck out four batters. We know this hurts, Columbia coach J.T. Clark said to the team after the game. We are still in the playoffs. We didnt play our best game, but they did. We have to use the hurt to reach our goal now and thats to go further than any team in Columbia history. We still have that chance. We have to do a better job hitting the ball, learn and move past this.

After a redshirt year at Florida, Tillotson followed former Fort White and Columbia High teammate Austin Lawrence to Santa Fe. Lawrence has moved on to Valdosta State, which is currently fourth in the Gulf South Conference standings at 24-16, 12-8. Lawrence has played in 35 games and is hitting .287 with 31 hits, 19 runs, two doubles, 13 RBIs and 18 walks. Fort Whites Justin Kortessis is at St. Johns River College. The Mid-Florida Conference Vikings were 23-28 this season. Kortessis played in 20 games with 22 at bats. He hit .121 with three doubles, two runs and two RBIs. Celeste Gomez, who plays softball at Florida State (42-11, 15-3), was at Fort White for Senior Night to honor sister Cecile. Gomez was wearing an injury boot at the time. Gomez was back in action as of Sunday when she delivered an RBI-single in a win over Boston College. For the season Gomez has played in 25 games and has 54 at bats. She is hitting .185 with one home run, one double and four RBIs. Q Columbia High baseball came up short in its quest for a district championship.

From staff reports Three Lake City Middle School runners were region champions at the FLYRA North Regional Middle School Championships at Bishop Snyder High on April 21. The meet also was a state qualifier and the total quali fiers from the school is nine girls and two boys. The LCMS athletes had to run under the Sunny Runners banner, because FHSAA rules do not allow member schools to partici pate with club teams. Emma Tucker won the 800 meters in 2:24. Nicole Morse won the 1,500 meters in 5:07. Bridget Morse won the 3,000 meters in 11:46. Other individuals who qualified for state were Cassie Pierron and Jillian Morse in the 1,500 meters, and Timothy Pierce and Shawn Ziegaus in the 3,000 meters. Ashayla English previ ously qualified in the 100 meters. Lake City has the defend ing state champion 4x800 relay team, already state qualified, and a second 4x800 team that has been knocking at the door all season. One of the A team members was sick, so coach April Morse split the runners in the two teams. Both ended up qualified for state. Members of the relay teams were Nicole Morse, Jillian Morse, Bridget Morse, Grace Kolovitz, Bernita Brown, Cristen Odum, Tucker and Pierron. Odum, who is a state quali fier in the 1,500 meters, was the alternate, running for Samantha Ziegaus. At the state meet we will stack the A team for the championship and the B team will be competitive with the next four runners, coach Morse said. The FLYRA (Florida Youth Running Association) Middle School State Championship is May 5 in Clearwater. LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 27-28, 2012 3B DRAFT: Jags, Bucs trade Continued From Page 1B Vibrant Griffin III joining Redskins serious Shanahan By JOSEPH WHITE Associated Press ASHBURN, Va. Robert Griffin III is vibrant and fun-loving. Mike Shanahan is busi nesslike and no-nonsense. Nevertheless, Shanahan thinks theyll get along just fine. The Washington Redskins coach assured eager fans that he will indeed let Robert be Robert when RGIII comes into the fold, starting Thursday night when the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor was selected No. 2 overall in the NFL draft. Shanahan joked that he wont hold it against Griffin just because hes got a lot of charisma and I dont. Hes a natural leader. ... You want guys to lead your football team, Shanahan said. Everybodys got their own way of doing things. Some guys are a little bit more serious. Youve got to be yourself. Hes got everything that we look for and Im looking forward to working with him. The Redskins moved into the No. 2 position nearly seven weeks ago by trading three first-round picks and a second-rounder to the St. Louis Rams. Shanahan said he will incorporate Griffins skills into the Redskins offense and anticipates some grow ing pains along the way. Rex Grossman was resigned earlier this offsea son to be the veteran placeholder in case Griffin isnt ready to start on opening day. You just dont want to throw a guy in there right away until he feels comfort able, Shanahan said. And theres a growing process. It doesnt happen right away. Obviously when you give up a first and second, you want that guy to get in there as quick as possible, but you want to do it at the right time and make sure hes ready. Shanahan stressed that he doesnt expect Griffin alone to turn the Redskins into an instant winner. Washington went 5-11 last year, its fourth consecutive last-place finish in the NFC East. When you take a look at the young quarterbacks that have been successful in this league, what have they had? Great defense, Shanahan said. If you come in and dont have great defense and you start as a rookie quarterback, usually you dont see very many teams that are over .500. The news conference ended a month of media silence for the coach, and he touched on numerous topics: Shanahan said hes granted receiver Jabar Gaffney permission to find another team because of the additions of free agents Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan. I believe I owe it to him to give him a chance to look around the league and check his options, Shanahan said. Shanahan said this season he will have or 19 starters that are differ ent from the starting lineup he had when he arrived in Washington two years ago. Doing the math, that leaves linebackers London Fletcher and Brian Orakpo, cornerback DeAngelo Hall and perhaps receiv er Santana Moss as the holdovers. Shanahan had a glow ing report about the sta tus of right tackle Jammal Browns injured hip. Brown has been hampered for two seasons, leaving to specula tion that the Redskins will target the position in the draft. Right now I feel better about Jammal Brown than (at any time) since Ive been here, Shanahan said. Shanahan confirmed the Redskins brought in veteran kicker Neil Rackers to compete with Graham Gano. The coach also is moving Lorenzo Alexander to inside linebacker and Niles Paul to tight end and hopes that tight end Chris Cooley, who is recovering from a knee injury, will be able to go full speed when offseason practices begin next month. Shanahan said the $18 million salary cap penalty imposed by the NFL had an impact on the Redskins offseason, but he said he is not allowed to discuss the issue in detail until it is resolved. The teams appeal of the penalty is scheduled to be heard by an arbitrator on May 10. Does it change your game plan? Shanahan said. Sure, it does.

For additional information on the camp, call Nicole Smith at 754-7095. This is the fourth year of the camp under Columbia County Recreation Department and because of the increase in staff we are accepting 60 applicants, Recreation Director Mario Coppock said. I consider the staff an all-star line-up for the camp, consisting mainly of Columbia County School Board employees. Campers will receive breakfast and lunch, and there are mini-camps and field trips planned. The mini camps are basketball, softball, volley-ball and Zumba for sports, and also include math and reading. I am really excited about the academic components, Coppock said. We had reading and this year we are adding math. Trip destinations include Adventure Landing, Skate Station, Universal Studios and Chuck E. Cheeses. There are a lot of things the fees we charge dont cover, Coppock said. The additional costs for the camp come from our com-munity business partners. Each year the camp gets better. Our special staff of professionals used to working with children bridges the relationship between the county and the schools.

Ryan Newman249; behind -63Sundays race at Kansas Speedway was the final one on the existingasphalt surface.The track is beingrepaved because track officials havedetermined that the rough Kansaswinters have damaged it to the pointthat there could be a major failurethat could lead to a major delay in arace,or worse. Michigan International Speedway and Pocono Raceway also are to be,orhave been,repaved this year,andPhoenix International Raceway hasrelatively new pavement.In the past,newly repaved race tracks aresmoother and faster,but the racingfor the first few years is a one-grooveaffair with little passing,as thefastest way around is usually right onthe bottom groove. Drivers generally say that theyd rather see the track patched upbecause they prefer racing on a worn-out surface. I wouldnt resurface tracks ever if it were up to me,Carl Edwards said.Id patch up the holes and keep onrunning I know no one wants to sit through a delay while they fix a hole in thetrack.Those kind of things that haveled to some of these repaves,I under-stand that we have to address thosethings,but I am a racer that likes torace on a bumpy,rough,slick racetrack with the cars sliding all over the place I dont care if there are 20-foot long patches of dirt in the middleof the race track,Im happy. Denny Hamlin said driving skill is less of a factor on a repaved race track. When you dont pave race tracks, and theres tire wear,the driver showsup a lot more than what it does whenyou pave a race track [and] it becomesall about track position and how goodyour car is,he said.The driver isprobably 65 percent of how you run[on a worn track].On a brand newpaved race track,I would say ournumbers are probably down to 30[percent] You see it at Rockingham,Atlanta tracks like this where tires wearout.A driver can really,honestly make a difference.When youre run-ning nearly wide open every singlecorner on new paved race tracks,theres not much us drivers can do. Jeff Gordon said he believes the tracks,like Bristol Motor Speedway inparticular,are taking some blame forboring racing that should be directedat the Car of Tomorrow. This car for the last five or six years has sort of put Goodyear,thetracks,everything into a differentbox,he said.Im looking forward tothe 2013 car,but I look forward tocars down the road to sort of takesome of the things in this car that arein there we cant take out. It will help the racing;things that are going to help Goodyear to make abetter tire that is more suitable forthe car.We still need to get someweight out of the cars in order to dothat.I dont know if that is going tohappen for 2013,but I think we havea nice aero (aerodynamically) bal-anced car.They have incorporated afew things in there to help. But he also said that repaving presents problems. All these repaves are not going to help,he said.That is going to makesome real challenges. Sundays race at Kansas ran without a problem,but dozers were rip-ping up the asphalt moments afterthe checkered flag fell. Dale Earnhardt Jr.s inter-est in racing history iswell-documented,as anyone who ever watched his oldBack in the DayTV show canattest. His interest in Earnhardt family history is just coming to light.It came out last week,duringEarnhardts session with themedia at Kansas Speedway,when he was asked about thevisit to the White House by lastyears Chase participants. Id been there before,and it was pretty much the same tour,but every time you go through itI think you find something inter-esting that you missed the timebefore,he said.I didnt reallyappreciate how old some of theartwork and stuff is in thathouse until I did some work onmy family tree these last sixmonths. Ive started to understand what 200 years really means orwhat 150 years truly means inthe grand scope of things. He said hes spent a good bit of time lately researching his familytree and truly enjoyed it. We dont have time today to talk about how much fun Ivehad with working on my family tree,he said.I was fortunateenough to find someone in thefield of genealogy that helped meout,and Im trying to put togeth-er some kind of a well-organizeddocument to sort of be able toshow to family members andwhat have you,and just keep soKelleys [Earnhardts sister] kids,and if I have any one day,theywont have to do the work. He said that before,he never thought about his ancestors who came before his grandfather,thelegendary short-track andNASCAR racer RalphEarnhardt. Ralphs father,I didnt know who he was and never reallycared who he was,never thoughtabout who he was,or what hisfamily would be like,Earnhardtsaid.Never thought past Ralphall these years,and I started get-ting into his father and Ralphsgrandfather and I found their burial plots,and so me and mygrandmother Martha and my sis-ter and my mom Brenda and mygirlfriend rode up there one day,just in Kannapolis or Concord,and visited their burial plots anda lot of relatives that were bornin like 1809 and 1822 and stufflike that. He said his cemetery trip was a moving experience. Its really cool to stand there over somebody that is responsi-ble for you being there.That waspretty neat. A check of the common genealogy sites on the Internet indi-cates that the Earnhardt familyhas been in North Carolina sincebefore 1800.Census records indi-cate they were mostly farmersand cotton mill workers.Theyappear to have come to NorthCarolina from Pennsylvania andwere originally from the oldGerman region of Pfalz,wherethe name was spelledEhrenhardt. I had people tell me to work on my family tree before,but Ididnt think it was that big of adeal,Earnhardt said.Once I gotinto it and started realizing theimportance of it,its been a lot offun. NOTEBOOK Lap leader again denied winSome familiar scenarios played out at Kansas Speedway on Sunday as Martin Truex Jr.led arace-high 173 laps in the STP 400,but wound upgetting beat by Denny Hamlin.It was the eighthtime in 13 races at Kansas that the driver wholed the most laps did not win. Hamlins victory was the 19th of his career and his second of 2012.Hes now fifth in thestandings,23 points behind leader Greg Biffle.Truex finished second and jumped two spots tosecond in the standings,15 points out of the lead. For the second straight week,a Sprint Cup race set new records for speed and for cautionflags.There were only three cautions at Kansasfor 18 laps,breaking the old track records of fiveand 23 laps.That led to a record race speed of144.122 miles per hour,topping the old mark of138.077 mph set by Biffle in October 2010. The week before at Texas,there were two yellow flags for 10 laps,breaking the old trackrecords of five yellows and 21 laps.That led to anew race record speed of 160.577 mph,breakingthe mark of 152.705 mph set last fall by TonyStewart.Hendrick awaits 200th Cup winThose caps celebrating 200 Sprint Cup victories for Hendrick Motorsports are getting somemiles on them.Team officials have been carryingthem to race tracks since last October at KansasSpeedway when Jimmie Johnson scored theteams 199th victory. Now,14 races later,the four-driver Hendrick contingent is headed to Richmond InternationalRaceway with the caps in tow. The current victory drought is the longest for Hendrick since the end of 2002 and the begin-ning of 2003,when it went 15 races without awin.That streak also began after a win atKansas,one by Gordon. I think if you look at Martinsville,it was so meant to be there,Gordon said,referring to thefact that he was just seconds away from winningwhen a caution flag sent the race into extendedlaps and Gordon and Jimmie Johnson werewrecked.And it just didnt happen.Were goingto get it.Its just very competitive right now.Buescher victor in truck raceJames Buescher,the surprise winner of the season-opening Nationwide Series race atDaytona International Speedway,got his first vic-tory in his regular series when he won the SFP250 Camping World Truck Series race at KansasSpeedway.It came in his 76th career start andwas the second straight win for his TurnerMotorsports team,which won the week before atRockingham Speedway with Kasey Kahne driv-ing one of the teams trucks. Buescher is now second in the truck standings, four points behind Timothy Peters,who finishedsecond at Kansas.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 27-28, 2012 DEAR ABBY: I recently attended a baby shower for a dear high school friend and his wife. The day after the shower, she posted a slideshow on Facebook titled Thanks for All Our Gifts with a picture of each gift and who gave it. She has had numerous miscar-riages and held this shower at five months, knowing the baby is not yet at a viable stage. While I feel sympathy for her fertility issues, and especially for her husband who desperately wants to be a father, I think this is a bid for atten-tion. I am disgusted at how she seems to be bragging about her haul, yet prepping everyone to give her an outpouring of sup-port if there is anoth-er tragic loss. Who does this? I am ... SPEECHLESS IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR SPEECHLESS: Most baby showers are given four to six weeks before the mothers due date. However, its possible that your friends wife had hers at five months because, with her history of miscar-riages, shes excited that her pregnancy seems to be progress-ing well and shes thinking positively about the outcome. I hope it works out well and so should you. As to her method of thanking every-one for the gifts, she may never have been taught that individ-ual thank-you notes should have been sent to each guest. Because it is clear that you are closer to the husband than the wife, perhaps you should tip him off that its still not too late for them to do the right thing and suggest he help her with them. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced from my wife for almost a year, with another year of separation preceding that. We divorced because of arguments, not because of abuse, adultery or sub-stance abuse issues. The divorce actually seemed to take on a life of its own. Because I have a small son with her, I desperately want to attempt a reconcilia-tion. She is reticent about it, however, mainly because I believe shes get-ting pressure from her family. How can I persuade her to go out with me so we can rekindle the spark we once shared? -MISSING MY OLD LIFE DEAR MISSING: Before a couple can successfully reconcile, they must first resolve the problems that caused the separation in the first place. That would be the way to begin. However, are you aware that not once in your letter did you say that you still love your ex-wife? If the reason you want to rekindle the spark is that you miss being with your child and the comforts of being married -but not her -then I dont think you have much chance of success. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My childs best friend has a parent who is constantly late (to the tune of hours, not minutes). I under-stand that the child is not at fault, but my childs feelings are hurt by the blatant disregard of the other parents tardiness. How do I help this parent (whom I adore otherwise) to under-stand that disappoint-ing my child through poor time manage-ment is not acceptable to our family without hurting both children? -WATCHING THE CLOCK DEAR CLOCK WATCHER: If you havent told the parent that it is hurtful when your child is kept waiting for hours for a play date, you should. And if that doesnt bring the desired result, your child should be encouraged to move on to some other activity and/or another companion. ** ** ** Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her moth-er, Pauline Phillips.

10B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 27-28, 2012 Payton to coach his son in 2012 ASSOCIATED PRESS New Orleans Saints football head coach Sean Payton (left) signs autographs during the pro-am rounds of the PGA Tour Zurich Classic at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, La., on Wednesday. By BRETT MARTEL Associated Press AVONDALE, La. Sean Payton played a round of golf with tour pro Ryan Palmer, posed for photos with his ever-supportive fans and then spoke about his eagerness to get back to coaching football as early as this fall. No, not pro football. Payton said hes staying in constant contact with NFL officials to ensure he doesnt run afoul of the rules of his season-long suspension in connection with the leagues bounty investigation of the Saints. However, Paytons son, Connor, who will soon turn 12, will be playing football in suburban Dallas in the fall. Whether the younger Paytons team runs the double-reverse known as the Superdome Special remains to be seen, but his father plans to be on the sideline and very involved. One of the things Im looking forward to doing this fall is helping coach my sons football team and doing a few things that you normally wouldnt be able to do while coaching in the NFL, Payton said Wednesday after playing in the Zurich Classic pro-am. I look forward to cutting the oranges, hauling the Gatorade and watching my son play every game and being a part of calling plays for his offense and doing some things like that that really get me excited and I know get him excited. While Payton seems to be coming to grips with his suspension, and appeared gratified by support at the course from fans some of whom wore Free Payton T-shirts he was annoyed by recently reported wire tapping allegations against the Saints. Its hogwash, Payton said about the allegations that general manager Mickey Loomis Superdome booth was wired so he could eavesdrop on oppos ing coaches. The allegations, made public in an ESPN report Monday, have spawned a joint Louisiana state police and FBI probe. The alleged activity covers a period between 2002 and 2004, before Payton took his first head coaching job in New Orleans in 2006. Its garbage, Payton continued. Obviously, I wasnt here, but I know Mickey Loomis well enough and I would consider him a close friend and profession ally one of the best general managers in sport. ... If you really study what he does in the booth, he listens closely to the broadcast, watches the games and for him to begin to try to dissect that language and everything just the way it was reported was awful, Ill say that. Paytons suspension began April 16 and runs through the Super Bowl, which, inci dentally, is in New Orleans. During that time, Payton may not even have casual, non-football conversations with anyone on any NFL team without at least notify ing the league office. The pro-am was one such event where Payton had to be careful because Saints running back Mark Ingram attended the event and hit some balls on the driving range. If Payton finds such extensive restrictions upset ting in any way, he did not let on about that after his round of golf. Its unimportant how I feel. Really its just the terms of the suspension and itll be easy to follow and pay attention to, Payton said. I told (NFL executive) Ray (Anderson) when we first began talking that well talk frequently. BCS officials try to whittle down postseason options By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press HOLLYWOOD Before they leave the beach, the guys who run the Bowl Championship Series want to narrow the postseason options to a few detailed plans. The 11 conference com missioners and Notre Dames athletic direc tor, along with one AD from each league, met Wednesday for about eight hours to discuss overhaul ing the way a champion is determined in college football, and possibly implementing a four-team playoff. It is the fourth such get together this year, and after it was over all agreed the time has come to start making some choices. I think thats what everyone wants to do. Get down to two, maybe three, BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock said. I think were making good prog ress on that. I think were going to make it. One thing is clear: The status quo is off the table, Hancock said. Though he cautiously added they have not ruled out making over the current system that guarantees only a No. 1 vs. No. 2 championship game. But all signs point toward that being unlikely, and that by the 2014 sea son the BCS as fans have known it will be gone. I would say there is an expectation that there will be significant change, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said. Delany and his fellow commissioners arrived in South Florida with four options to discuss, but much of the focus has been on a four-team play off with two national semi finals and a title game. That model comes with many variables, such as where the games will be played, how the teams will be picked and how the bowls fit in if they do at all. The role of the bowls represents a potential obstacle. Specifically, the Rose Bowl. On Tuesday, executives from the Sugar, Orange, Fiesta and Rose met with the conference commis sioners to give their input and answer some ques tions about how their games could work in a new postseason system. An option being dis cussed could force those traditional bowls to give up holding their games the years they host a semifinal or championship match up. That could mean a year without a Rose Bowl, which has been played every year since 1916 most of those games matching the champions of the Big Ten and Pac-12. We feel like we have something very special and unique in college foot ball, Rose Bowl spokes woman Gina Chappin said. We went into the room with the intention of reaf firming what we are. The Big Ten and Pac-12 dont just play in the Rose Bowl, theyre partners with the game. Delany and Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott have made it clear that protecting that lucrative partnership is a priority. I just want to make sure that the changes that we make are evolution ary, Delany said. That they support the regular season. That theyre from a Rose Bowl perspective, that they sustain that tradi tion. That were also able to produce something that the public appreciates and supports. 10BSPORTS JUMP
