Fuerza Bruta is the fastpaced and acrobatic play in which the audience stands as performers dance and jump around on the walls, onstage and on the floor with the crowd. Usher worked as its lead Running Man, beginning the show on a treadmill, bursting though papermade walls as his No. 1 R&B tune Climax blasted in the background. There was also a plastic pool suspended above the crowd, where dancers moved and splashed around to songs, including one slow groove with lyrics like: Its raining inside your bed. Water hit the crowd throughout the night, which included members of the press and industry insiders at the invite-only event. Usher debuted 12 songs Friday. Hell release his seventh album, Looking for Myself, on June 12. At one point the Daryl Roth Theatre turned into a pulsating nightclub as Ushers new pop anthems including the Europeanflavored Scream played as lights flickered, sirens blasted and confetti burst. Fuerza Bruta means brute force in Spanish. The play was developed by Diqui James, the Argentine creator of the long-running De La Guarda. Usher will also perform two shows with the cast Saturday that will be open to the public.Chris Colfer of Glee writes his Hollywood ticketNEW YORK When Glee star Chris Colfer was 8, he began writing a novel. He wrote two pages, called it the first chapter and proudly showed it to his grandmother. She said, OK, could use some development, laughed Colfer in a recent interview. That memory was worked into his script for the movie Struck by Lightning, which premiered at this years Tribeca Film Festival. Colfer wrote and stars in the movie. He plays Carson, an ambitious highschool senior who blackmails his fellow students into helping him get into Northwestern University. The 21-year-old actor came up with the idea for the story when he was a teen as a way to vent about his teachers and class mates. He then taught himself how to write a screenplay. I would go to my local Borders in Fresno (Calif.) and I would study Sofia Coppolas Marie Antoinette published screenplay. Id sit there cause I couldnt afford it and Id read it and Id read it and Id teach myself how to screenwrite and how to, you know, frame everything. Allison Janney plays his mother, and Colfer says he always pictured her in the part. Colfer has just finished a psychological drama he hopes to shoot indepen dently this summer. He also adapted a pilot for the Disney Channel based on Florence Laughlins childrens book The Little Leftover Witch.George Rodrigue again states artist laureateBATON ROUGE Well-known blue dog artist George Rodrigue has been re-appointed by Gov.

Jindal also praised Rodrigue as a community activist. The artist has raised funds for Hurricane Katrina rebuilding.In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death even death on a cross!

victims advocate at the sheriffs office. I felt so bad for all the family members standing out there that lost a loved one to a senseless crime, she said. Tice said she and fellow employees stayed locked their building until 5:30 p.m. after learning the shooter was still at large. A man got up this morning to do an honest days work and build up his business and someone just took his life. Its cruel, Tice said. It just makes you think of things that can happen so quickly. Thomas Benson, manager of Advance Auto Parts, right next door to the convenience store where the shooting occurred, said he didnt know about the robbery until he was told about it by customers. I heard one shot, one car sped away and one black male ran away, he said. I just thought it was a scuffle between those two individuals and that it had nothing to do with the store itself. Benson said he was surprised to learn the store owner had been killed. Everyone was alarmed, he said. In talking to our customers and customers that frequent that store, everybody said he was a real nice guy. Im definitely alarmed. I didnt think anything like that would have happened at that store. Ricky Jernigan was at the crime scene attempting to console the victims family members and friends who had gathered there. I know the victim and I know his family, he said. Most of the Indian community is a very close community so when we heard about the situation we came down here to see what was going on. The family members and friends were very shocked that somebody would do a thing such as this. Jernigan said communication has somewhat complicated the case. There is very much a language barrier, he said.

The wife (Daxa Patel) was behind the counter and the victim was coming out of a utility room or broom closet off from the side of the counter. Authorities have not been able to determine whether the gunman shot Patel because he was sartled. Were uncertain if he shot because he was startled or because he flat didnt care and was cold-hearted, Shaw said, noting multiple shots were fired at the Patels, but Daxa Patel was uninjured. The suspect with the gun attempted to carjack a white Mercury in the parking lot while trying to get away from the crime scene. However, the occupant of the vehicle would not allow the man to enter the car and drove away to an S&S convenience store about a mile east of A&M Discount Beverage and called the police. The suspect then fled on foot heading east from A&M Discount Beverage. Shaw said he believed the second suspect wore the tape as a way of concealing his identity. A Department of Corrections K-9 unit was called in to track the suspects Friday. SCENE: How they reactedContinued From Page 1A Tice said she and fellow employees stayed locked their building until 5:30 p.m. after learning the shooter was still at large.Sandy Tice, Chances For Children executive directorview, police officials said. Smith had been on paid administrative leave for the past six months after filing a complaint of racial discrimination against the department. Police officials said Smith was the subject of an internal investigation based on allegations of untruthfulness. However, they have yet released any documentation detailing the allegations and said the investigation ongoing. I received my right to sue notice from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Friday (April 20) and Ive forwarded it to my attorney and we will follow through with a federal lawsuit and we will let a jury of my peers decide whether or not I was right or wrong, Smith said. Smith said the actual lawsuit is against the city because the police department is a part of the city. He said the suit has not yet been filed, but he plans to meet with his attorney during the week and review the paperwork before sending the complaint to the federal court in Jacksonville. Smith said the claims of untruthfulness under investigation are based on allegations from when he worked at the Portsmouth, Va., police department. The untruthfulness claims were about whether or not I dis closed incidents I was cleared of while working in Portsmouth, Va., Smith said. Smith said the allegations of untruthfulness also center on whether he knew he would be getting a subpoena to testify in the Rudolph Davis federal lawsuit against the city.SMITH: Gets go aheadContinued From Page 1A Colored People. America is a big-dog country and only respects a big dog, he said, as he explained how the NAACP has served as a bloodhound seeking out justice, a German shepherd protecting its members and a seeing eye dog, looking for ways to achieve racial equality and justice. The luncheon was held at the Winfield Community Center with more than 200 people in attendance, including several local politicians, ministers and resi dents. The event serves as the local NAACPs annual fundraiser. Rivers also spoke about America turning its back on its principles and how people needed to stand together to fight injustice. We need to do something, Rivers said. The challenge is when do we get angry enough to do something. The local NAACP chapter also gave out awards to sponsors and members. Rountree-Moore was recognized as the organizations corporate award winner; Rev. Alvin Baker was recognized as the NAACP Community Award recipient and Albert K. Mayo, John D. Kerney and Caleb Henderson were recognized as life membership members. Katrina Powell, a member of the Columbia County NAACP executive board, said its important to attend the annual freedom fund luncheon to show support for the local organization. I think its very important that we attend and support our own branch, she said. The NAACP is a great organization and we do a lot for people some of it is free of costs, so were helping others who cant help themselves and who really need assistance. Thats what were here for. John Mayo, Columbia County NAACP branch president, said the luncheon went well. The food was great. The speaker was great. The attendance was great and we always get great support from the community, he said. Mayo said he believed the 30th annual Freedom Fund Luncheon Fundraiser will be remembered for the events keynote speaker Rev. Rivers. Rivers was great and definitely on time, Mayo said. He said all the right things. People need to stand up for justice and we seem to want better, but if we want better, we need to come together to do better and things will get better.NAACP: stand together Continued From Page 1A America is a big dog country and only respects a big dog.The Rev. Nelson B. Rivers III, keynote speakerBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAn armed robbery that left a local store clerk dead and two suspects on the run impacted several areas of the community Friday, forcing lockdowns at three local schools involving more than 1,500 students near the crime scene. Mike Millikin, Columbia County superintendent of schools, said the lockdown began around 2:10 p.m. He said 1,500-1,600 students at three schools were impacted by the lockdown and other families and bus routes were impacted by delay in the bus routes. Across the district probably another 1,000 families were impacted by their children getting delayed on the school buses, Millikin said. I just want to thank law enforcement, the police department and the sheriffs office for their prompt action and good advice and the families of students for patience in having their afternoons disrupted and inconvenienced. Millikin said at approximately 2 p.m. school district officials got a call from one of the schools about what to do about loading because law enforcement was securing Eastside and Melrose Park elementary schools, which were closest to the incident, and nearby Richardson Middle School. This was just about the time elementary schools dismiss students for the day so there was a concern about what to do about the elementary school children who walk home and the children who get off buses in the vicinity of the crime scene. We decided to hold all walkers and the buses and allow only parent-pickup by vehicle, if the authorities were letting traffic flow through the streets, Millikin said. It did impact the buses at Lake City Middle School and Columbia High School because some of those buses drop kids off in the same neighborhoods and we didnt want to drop the kids off unsupervised. So we delayed some of the buses from their routes. Law enforcement was at all three campuses supervising pickups along with school administrators and school district office administrators. I went to the school closest to the scene and law enforcement told me they were running the K-9 units through the neighborhoods and they were going to keep searching for a scent until they found the person or until they were sure he had left the area, Millikin said. Millikin said he talked to Law enforcement on the scene around 4:45 p.m. and they had already released the area for families and children to go to their homes. We had it pretty much cleared out about 5 p.m., he said.School lockdowns meant a long day for students I heard one shot, one car sped away and one black male ran away.

H ope really does spring eternal. At least for women. As I perused the shelves at my local drugstore the other day, my teenage daughter said, “Mom, if this stuff really did all the things the labels say it will do, everybody would walk around looking great!” No kidding.I remember my mother, when she was about my age, going to bed with her face lit-erally white from the loads of cold cream she slathered on. She would have her hair done once a week, then sleep with toilet paper wrapped around it to protect it. And she NEVER went out of the house without having her face fully made-up. Still, she never considered any, um “age intervention” -i.e., a face-lift. Even when she got into her 60s and bemoaned what she felt was her relent-lessly aging skin. (I thought she was beautiful, of course.) But she did laughingly fantasize about pulling up all that was dropping, from her ankles on up, and gathering it all on top of her head with a huge clip. Modern cosmetic surgery can do almost all that, it seems, but I’m more intrigued by the “hope in a jar” that sits within reach, in terms of price and availability, of the average American woman. Thirty years ago, when my mother was the age I am now, just what did she find on drug-store and department-store shelves? Thanks to online archives, it’s easy to find out. In the early 1980s, it seems my mother could buy Estee Lauder’s “Maximum Care Eye Creme,” which, according to its adver-tising, provided “the best in protective and effective care for the delicate area around your eyes.” Lancome sold a “Protective Day Cream: A new beginning for your skin. Every morn-ing.” Good old Noxema, its advertising declared, “cleans clean like soap without drying. Moisturizes without grease. Tingles your face alive.” Many of the names themselves just give it away, like Orlane’s face cream, “Thermo Active Firming Serum.” And, today, Olay’s Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream offers what drugstore.com describes as an “amino-peptide complex and intracellular fortifier.” Wow.So, as I stood in the drugstore, looking at the flawless skin of my almost 16-year-old, I wondered about, at this rate, what would be available to her in 30 years. And no matter what it is, how could the hype be anymore intense than it is now? Here’s one thing I do know. It’s easy to say at her age that, essentially, “it doesn’t work.” At mine? Hope springs eternal. U nmanned aerial vehicles, AKA drones, are already more than a flight of fancy over American domestic airspace. Although drones are best known for tracking and attack-ing terrorists overseas, big city police departments, university researchers and assorted fed-eral agencies from Homeland Security to the Agriculture Department, are already deploying the aircraft here. The prospect of swarms of hovering, circling spies in the skies over neighborhoods and workplaces is, of course, daunt-ing to privacy advocates, even though UAVs are as likely to check out snow melt and hur-ricane intensity as to target criminal gangs or smugglers on the border. One group, the Electronic Freedom Foundation, recently shed a bit more light on domes-tic drones with a suit that forced the Federal Aviation Administration to release lists of all the entities, government and private, that have sought authority to operate them in the same airspace as piloted planes. The FAA is still working on rules that would allow remote and computer-controlled UAVs to operate without interfer-ing with general aviation. Hundreds, if not thousands, more organizations are likely to take up drone joysticks within a few years. Several privacy advocates are petitioning the FAA to address how nosy drones can be, but the agency is likely to stay focused on safety, and leave constitutional matters to the courts. Supreme Court rulings in the 1980s concerning manned aerial surveillance by police of private property said anything seen from “publicly navigable airspace” is fair game even without a warrant. But today’s surveillance cameras, sensors and computer enhancement raise the thresh-old from what’s growing or bur-ied in the backyard to the abil-ity to not only peek through the bedroom window, but through the curtains and into the base-ment. The 60-some entities identified by the FAA as flying drones thus far were mostly either public agencies or pri-vate companies engaged in designing and making the air-craft. But it’s easy enough to imagine, as the technology becomes cheaper, that private security firms, utilities and media firms will want eyes in the sky. Paparazzi have already been known to mount cameras on radio-controlled model planes to overfly closed celebrity gatherings -small model air-craft and rockets are generally unregulated as long as they stay away from airports and other restricted space, and don’t go higher than 400 feet. For exhibitions with more pow-erful model rockets, the FAA usually shuts down the launch area to low-flying aircraft while the launches go on. FAA rule makers will have enough headaches just figuring out how to manage all the extra air traffic drones will bring and deciding who will be allowed to fly a UAV, with what training, at what size and how far, let alone what they can see and record. Dronesmaycome torule theskies ONE OPINION A NOTHER VIEW A s Washington keeps yanking money from Americans’ wallets, car prices are set to rise beyond the reach of low-income drivers. And from there, things grow deadly. Blame a regulatory regime called Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards. Congress enacted these man-dates in 1975. Washington generally has hiked CAFE standards in an ongoing effort to boost automobile efficiency. Lacking magic wands, car manufacturers spend money to obey these laws. And then -surprise! -up go sticker prices. As they have for 37 years, car companies will follow these new rules by making cars thin-ner and lighter. Smaller, slight-er vehicles get better mileage. But that hardly matters when a car smacks into a sycamore or slams head on into another vehicle. That’s when most driv-ers would trade lower mpg for protective layers of thick steel. The laws of physics are stubbornly impervious to Obama’s green slogans, no matter how abrasively he shouts them. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety concluded in 2007 that “none of the 15 vehicles with the lowest driver death rates is a small model. In contrast, 11 of the 16 vehicles with the highest death rates are mini or small models.” “Fuel-standard lethality is as obvious as a smashed wind-shield,” J.R. Dunn observed in The American Thinker. He carefully tracks CAFE’s may-hem. “According to the Brookings Institution,” Dunn wrote, a 500-pound “weight reduction of the average car increased annual highway fatalities by 2,200-3,900 and serious injuries by 11,000 and 19,500 per year. USA Today found that 7,700 deaths occurred for every mile per gallon gained in fuel econo-my standards.” “How many deaths have resulted?” Dunn wondered. “Depending on which study you choose, the total ranges from 41,600 to 124,800. To that figure we can add between 352,000 and 624,000 people suffering serious injuries, including being crip pled for life. ... Fuel standards have become one of the major causes of death and misery in the United States -and one almost completely attributable to human stupidity and short sightedness.” Focus briefly on the tears and tombstones behind these casualty figures. Most of these injuries involved major pain and hardship. Nearly each one of these CAFE-caused deaths featured crying loved ones, a casket, and someone inside it who probably made people smile just days earlier. The only good news here is that road deaths have fallen lately, but for other reasons. Says Dr. Soumi Eachempati, chief of trauma services at Manhattan’s Weill Cornell Medical Center: “I feel the recent decreases in fatality data are due to many safety mea-sures including better airbags, more states having seat belt laws, higher seat belt compli-ance, more strict drunk driving laws, better trauma care, better EMS, more traffic congestion in certain areas, and what some feel are safer road conditions.” But rather than leave bad enough alone, Obama and com-pany clamp down, ever harder. Strengthening CAFE standards by 53.5 percent by 2025 likely will yield deadlier cars. Airbags will do only so much while sur-rounded by materials that recall aluminum siding. Before Washington sends additional Americans to early graves, Team Obama should step off the gas pedal and pon-der the physicist who wrote Traffic Safety. Dr. Leonard Evans was perfectly clear: “CAFE kills, and higher CAFE standards kill even more.” Fuel-economy standards will boost car prices, death rates Hope in a jar for the wrinkled set Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com “What a difference a day made ... 24 little hours. ...”S inger Dinah Washington was talk-ing about finding her one true love. Newt Gingrich is singing the blues about giving up his one true hope: a successful shot at the presidency. It was just Tuesday, while visiting the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, N.C., that the former Speaker of the House and presidential hopeful said it was too early to drop out of the race. By Wednesday, Gingrich, although still his usual confi-dent self, acknowledged that he was “rethinking” his campaign. When Rick Santorum, who made a wide swath through the Southern states despite Gingrich’s so-called (and wildly unsuccessful) Southern strat-egy, gave up his bid April 10, Gingrich saw his chance to hone his conservative skills as well as his ego. While Gingrich is likely to officially suspend his campaign next week don’t expect any humility from the man who has never demonstrated even a grasp of the concept. Speaking in North Carolina after a few hours of “rethinking,” he was still defiant and didn’t cut Romney any slack. “This guy has worked for six years, put together a big machine and has put together a serious campaign. I think obvi ously that I would be a better candidate but the objective fact is that the voters didn’t think that.” This could be an uneasy alliance. Gingrich likely lays his weary head down every night still dreaming that it is he who is basking in the glow of sweep-ing five primaries and heading for Florida and the Republican convention to accept the nomi-nation. But for now, he is, according to spokesman R.C. Hammond, “laying out plans how as a citi-zen he can best help stop (an) Obama second term and win congressional majorities.” A slowexit forNewt Q Scripps Howard News Service Q Scripps Howard News Service OPINION Sunday, April 29, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Deroy Murdockderoy.murdock@gmail.com Q New York commentator Deroy Murdock is a columnist with the Scripps Howard News Service and a media fellow with the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2011 7A Diva Day Altrusa mem-bers Dorothy Spradley (from left) and Dr. Robin Hall, greet Ann Darby and Donna Darby as they head into the Diva Day festivities Saturday at the Columbia County Fairground exhibition hall. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comW ELLBORN — The beau-ty and seren-ity offered by Mandi’s Chapel was recognized by residents of the state earlier this month during the Florida Chapter of the American Institute of Architects 100 years, 100 Places competi tion. Mandi’s Chapel was named top religious building in the state and second over-all favorite building in the state during the competition, and Friday afternoon about 30 people gathered in the chapel to get the award from AIA representatives. Mandi’s Chapel is the centerpiece of the Episcopal Diocese of Camp Weed and the Cerveny Conference Center. Joe Chamberlain, Camp Weed and Cerveny Conference Center execu tive director, welcomed AIA representatives and intro duced the Right Rev. Samuel Johnson Howard, who told a personal story detailing his first experience with Mandi’s Chapel. The chapel is named in honor of Amanda Petway, the daughter of Betty and Thomas Petway III, who died at age 22. Amanda Petway visited Camp Weed as a teen-ager. “There are so many people who have enjoyed and treasured Mandi’s Chapel and sent us wonderful cor-respondence in letters, I think this award brings it back into everybody’s mind and renews their faith in the building and the camp,” Betty Petway said. “This is a wonderful honor for John Zona. We didn’t have any-thing to do with the design at all. We thought this would be a perfect memorial for Mandi and it has been. It’s a special place.” The chapel was built in 1995 and its architect, John Zona, also attended Friday’s award ceremony. “I’m just overwhelmed by the awards. It’s just fab-ulous,” he said. “It was a show of support that I didn’t expect.” Zona said he put about three or four months in the development portion of the design for Mandi’s Chapel, which is built of southern yellow pine. “It was about a few months and I was here frequently during construction to answer questions the builder had and to make sure every-thing was going according to plan,” he said. “Whenever you’re asked to do a spiritually motivated building you elevate your thinking to another level. You have to think in terms of a building that will inspire. That’s what people come to Mandi’s Chapel for, to get away from the ... crowd, relax, get their minds off their problems and get the spiritual con-nection they need to make with whatever spiritual being they believe in.” Chamberlain said the award, a glass plaque and a framed certificate, will be placed in Mandi’s Chapel. “Mandi’s Chapel, from the time it was built, was meant to be and has been our signature building,” he said. “It’s central to what we believe as Christians, it’s our place of worship and it’s central physically to all the buildings and structures in the camp. Worship is a key component of life as an Episcopalian, so having such a special place of worship and having it recognized for its architecture, uniqueness and placement on the prop-erty is quite an honor.” Vicki Long, executive vice president and CEO of the Florida AIA, said organiz ers had no idea the contest would become as popular as it became. “With nearly 2.5 million votes it exceeded our expec-tations,” she said. “It was a great opportunity to have the general public go pining to architects about architecture and bring them into a dialog about all of Florida’s very unique styles. This is been an overall positive experience for both the association, our members and the general public at large.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterJohn Zona, who designed Mandi’s Chapel, delivers a spe ech after receiving an Award of Public Recognition Frida y at Mandi’s Chapel located at Camp Weed in Wellborn. ‘It’s a special place’Mandi’s architect: JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterBishop Samuel Johnson Howard (from right) speaks with Thomas Petway III, Betty Petway and Bishop Frank Cervena during an awards cere mony Friday at Mandi’s Chapel.

For city and rural route letter carriers in Lake City, Fort White and surrounding towns in Columbia County, this will be the 20th year the letter carriers and their custom ers have participated in this annual event which helps stock the food bank and agency food pantries across Columbia County. USPS Supervisor Susan Jones and NALC Member Jim Bowles are coordinat ing the event for the Lake City Post Office. Each year United Way Worldwide partners with the National Association of Letter Carriers, the AFL-CIO and Feeding America to address hun ger by providing food to those most in need. It is the largest one-day effort to combat hunger in the United States with mil lions of families participat ing and thousands of letter carriers, postal employees and volunteers collecting the donations. Locally, United Way of Suwannee Valley coordinates the effort with the local post offices and agencies that receive the contributed food. The Lake City Post Office letter carriers and rural route carriers in Fort White and sur rounding communities in Columbia County last year hauled in food total ing 14,241 pounds from their customers. “We are asking resi dents to donate non-per ishable food items that include canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice, but canned food products containing pro tein are always needed,” Postmaster Steve Lee said. Local letter carriers’ ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive is May 12

Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, April 29, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B FROM THE SIDELINE Brandon FinleyPhone: (386) 754-0420bfinley@lakecityreporter.com Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com Q Brandon Finley covers sports for the Lake City Reporter Burns will join swim team at Florida Southern. Tigers down but not outC olumbia High may be down after the District 4-6A championship game, but the Tigers are nowhere near out. It takes two good arms to win in high school baseball and the Tigers’ have that heading into the state playoffs. Kellan Bailey will likely get the start in the Tigers first-round game against Middleburg High at 7 p.m. on Thursday. It’s an opponent that the Tigers are familiar with, since the Broncos have played in Columbia’s district until this season. Middleburg beat Leon High, 5-4, in the District 3-6A championship game as Columbia was falling to Stanton Prep. The good news for the Tigers is there won’t ever be any more than two games in a week on the road to the Final Four and Columbia could pitch Bailey in back-to-back games. Should Columbia win Thursday, the Tigers wouldn’t play again until May 8. Even if the Tigers don’t throw Bailey, they have a very capable arm in Alan Espenship to put on the mound. Espenship had his worse outing of the year against Stanton Prep after giving up two earned runs, but those are the only earned runs Espenship has given up this season. What’s better for the Tigers is Jayce Barber put together some of his best innings of the year to help the Tigers pull back in the game against Stanton Prep after Espenship left the mound. Barber struck out five batters in just 3 1/3 innings. Pitching will be pivotal to the Tigers, because the bats haven’t been hot to this point in the season. The good news is the Tigers can win any game if the bats can produce just a couple of runs. Despite the bats not being hot in the championship game, the Tigers still had the attitude that they were going to win the game. The dugout got hot as Columbia tried to rally and emotion was running rabid. A team can feed off that type of emotion. It can get into opposing pitcher’s head and it can heat up the bats. Columbia has good pitching. It seems to have the chemistry. All the Tigers need is the bats to get hot and it could be ready for a deep playoff run.Signing tribute JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Deonte Crumitie lifts 265 pounds while practicing his clean and jerk. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comThe signing ceremony turned into a tribute for a special athlete. Family and friends gathered at Columbia High’s Career Center on Friday to celebrate Heather Burns signing a swimming schol-arship to Florida Southern College in Lakeland. Heather is the daughter of Rob and Paula Burns. A video montage showed Burns in various stages of her swimming career from very young to high school. Two coaches who shared large portions of that jour-ney spoke. “Heather was my favorite kid to coach because you got 100 percent all the time,” Gator Swim Club coach Chris Oliver said. “She received our Coach’s Award and it was the easiest decision to make. Heather is somebody not only to hold up to the kids, but to learn from her as a coach. She taught me two things — never lower your expec-tations, and how valuable is a person who tries all the time. Heather helps others work harder and makes a group better. That’s what she brings to a team.” Burns decided on Florida Southern and coach Duncan Sherrard following a visit to the school. “I stayed with the team on a recruiting trip and got to know them,” Burns said. “I liked the coach and the team. My roommate will be another swimmer. It came down to my major. At Florida Southern I will be able to start in nursing my freshman year.” Oliver said he had spoken with Sherrard earlier in the week. “Coach Sherrard is extremely excited for Heather to come to the team,” Oliver said. “He is looking for her to be a lead-er and is excited about his freshman class.” Burns qualified for the Lady Tigers at state in the 200 freestyle and 500 free-style in both her junior and senior years. “I will mostly be swimming distance freestyle and probably some IM (Individual Medley),” Burns said. “I will swim whatever the coach trains me in and what the team needs. One of our first meets is the Florida Invitational at UF.” As a swim club and school coach, Sabrina Sibbernsen has watched Burns grow up in the sport. “It is said the road to success is traveled by those who believe and Heather JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High School student Heather Burns signed a sw imming scholarship to Florida Southern College in Lake land at the CHS Career Center on Friday.

This is awesome for me,’ Burns said. ‘My class is goi ng to be the biggest recruiting class we ever had.’ BURNS continued on 6B Tigers ready for spring practiceBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High head coach Brian Allen will enter his second year as Tigers head coach when the foot-ball team begins spring practice on Tuesday. The Tigers will tune up for a May 18 showdown at Dunnellon High to cap off the spring. What comes in between for the Tigers is 15 practices to try to get back in the mindset of football. At this point, Allen feels that his team has made plenty of strides since he took over last spring. Columbia wrapped up its spring combine on Friday and Allen was impressed by what he saw. “It’s something that we started last year and it’s an opportunity to get some numbers to see how we’ve progressed,” Allen said. “We do it in late April and again in August before camp. Once you’ve had the kids for a cycle, you can Columbia will begin training on Tuesday.

Fort White will build around Andrew Baker when spring practice starts on Tuesday. Baker returns as quarterback for the Indians. The junior will be entering his third season as a starter. “People ask me what is more difficult, trying to find a quarterback or a tailback,” Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. “I’ll take an established quarter-back. Andrew knows what we’re doing and we are able to open up our offense. He and I are getting on the same page.” Baker threw for 1,361 yards last year and had 14 touchdown passes with only four interceptions. Baker rushed for 208 yards and Fort White must replace one-third of last year’s team. INDIANS continued on 4B

Student athletes were honored, along with the presentation of letters and superlative awards. Former Columbia High player Kaitlin Scott received the Mariner Award in softball. Some sports named MVPs, but the softball pro-gram chose the Mariner Award for “accomplish-ments and contributions both on and away from the competitive arena.” Scott, a sophomore utility fielder, played in 26 games and was third on the team with a .333 average. She had 23 hits, 11 runs, four doubles, three home runs, eight RBIs and 11 walks. The Mariners struggled in moving up to four-year competition, posting a 5-23 record. The team is preparing for next year when Coastal Georgia will join the Southern States Athletic Conference.Former CHS player Kaitlin Scott receives Mariner Award 2 DailyJumbles 2 Daily Crosswords Lake City ReporterThe first puzzles will have Friday’s answers and the second will have the answers for the first.EVERY SUNDAYIN SECTION BSPORTS

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2012 3B CHS: Spring practice to begin on Tuesday Continued From Page 1Bsee what they’ve been able to get accomplished on a threeor four-year period. Right now, you can go down the list of guys on the roster from last year and I can tell you something successful about them all.” Allen mentioned Laremy Tunsil, Javere Smith, Darren Burch, Felix Woods, Ronald Timmons, Blake Kuykendall, Malachi Jean, Dalton Masters, Wyndell Wallace, Deonte Crumitie and Nick Martino by name as players with impressive gains. “There are tons of kids that have really excelled in the weight room,” he said. Of course, fans will be more excited to see what happens on the practice field and how that turns into wins this fall. Practice will begin at 4:10 p.m. on Tuesday after a 3:30 meeting. Equipment will be issued on Monday. “Things will run very similar to how they were a year ago,” Allen said. “The first three days will be in shorts.” But the Tigers will add in a little bit of a new mix to the spring. “Something that we have incorporated this year is inviting both of the mid-dle schools over to kind of piggyback off of the var-sity. They can get coaching points and check the things that we’re doing to imple-ment them into the middle schools this year. That way, they’re talking the same verbiage as ours. That’s four more years of knowing what they’ve heard.” Allen believes it’s a move that can pay off for the Tigers for years to come. “I think it takes you over the edge,” Allen said. “It will help eliminate the thinking and they can go out and play. When you go from the middle school to the high school, usually you have to learn, learn, learn over an extended period of time. Now they can pin their ears back and go make plays. They can attack and use their natural ability instead of thinking and being a sec-ond behind.” Allen pointed out Jayce Barber and Woods as two leaders going into the spring that he expects big things out of. “Those are two guys that have been captains and are going to be captains,” Allen said. “They’re core leaders to this football team on and off the field. There are other guys that we want to step up and do that this year like big Tunsil. He has to step up and be a vocal leader because of the notoriety that he has. Trey Marshall is a two-year starter that we expect to step up and the same thing with Javere Smith. There are guys at different positions.” Allen mentioned Timmons as a guy that could have fans salivating after the spring concludes. “He’s not someone that we haven’t heard of, but he’s been a monster in the weight room” Allen said. “Everyone is expecting him to have a monster year if he’ll stay with it. The big-gest thing is consistency. That’s what will help him separate himself if he’s able to be consistent. We can have him being a warrior one day and not being able to find him the next. If he’s able to be consistent, he could have a breakout sea-son.” With Timmons, Braxton Stockton and Rakeem Battle all back in the run-ning game, the Tigers should have a potent rush-ing attack which could take a lot of pressure off the passing game. Allen is hop-ing that the running game is such that it opens up a lot of options for Barber through the air. “It can help us in multiple ways, because they are going to have to respect the run,” Allen said. “We want to be able to punch them in the mouth with the run and open up things in the pass-ing game. We should be able to run the play action like crazy if we can get the run game rolling. We’re going to do some things to manipulate people. We’re going to do some things with Rock this year. He has the ability to be on the field in the slot in third-down situations. We can do a lot of different things with him.” And Allen is looking for other receivers to step up. “J.T. Bradley is a guy we want to step up and be the player we think he can be,” Allen said. “Alex Weber is going to have to step up. Antonio Pelham was our third guy last year and will have to fill a spot now that Nigel (Atkinson) is gone. They’ve all worked extreme-ly hard so we’re looking for good things.” Columbia will go the first three days in pads before strapping up on Friday. “The pads will come on and I’m expecting competi-tion,” Allen said. “They’re highly confident in their ability and what we’ve done, so they’re extremely confident in themselves. We’ll go straight into the Oklahoma drill to get the blood flowing. We want to see the competition come out from the beginning. We expect them to go out and compete to show what they’ve accomplished. The big thing is we’re looking to have a good time doing it.” Allen didn’t want to offer any predictions for next season, but he does expect big things. “I don’t like to look ahead but I’ve been telling the kids that anything less than 10 wins is going to be a disappointment for myself,” Allen said. “I don’t see any major surprises coming. We’re going to see pretty much the same schedule we saw last year. We have to get started fast in week one or two and then I really believe nine or ten wins is attainable. We have to use the same intensity we’ve used in the offseason and hope for no injuries.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Alex Weber leaps up to perform a verti cal jump test during the Tigers’ combine-style workout perfor med on Thursday at the high school.

Lady Tigers say goodbye to 5 seniorsBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAfter three playoff appearances and two district championships, Columbia High will say goodbye to its senior class. A group that began as four and grew to five will leave a lasting impression on Lady Tigers’ softball. Michaela Burton, Taylor Douglass, Jessica Keene, Stephanie Pilkington and Payton Sund have left the program better off than it was when they arrived. “Payton she had super freshman season and sophomore season before getting hurt as a junior,” Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. “She came back and worked super hard this year to overcome her injury to be a contributor to the pro-gram. She did a really good job of driving in runs and playing first base. Her two home runs in one game as a freshman stands out and then her home run in the district-tournament game, because I know how hard she worked.” Burton was the ultimate teammate according to Williams. “Michaela came in as a defensive specialist as a middle infielder,” he said. “She started at shortstop and moved over to play a different position to make us a championship-style defense. That meant a lot to our program making the unselfish move after playing shortstop her whole life.” Williams didn’t have as much time with Douglass, but she helped fill a void during her senior season. “Taylor, I don’t have a whole lot of history with her other than she’s an A player,” he said. “Her knowledge of the game and potential to drive in runs was always there. She filled in nicely and pitched about half our innings. She gave us quality time on the mound. I just don’t know what we would have done without her leadership.” Although she missed most of her senior season, William will always remem-ber what Keene did for the program. “Jessica was probably the toughest loss we’ve had since I’ve been coaching,” he said. “To have to play all year without last year’s most valuable player and a 26 game winner on the mound was just too diffi-cult to replace, although her bat was a big part of our success too. We missed her hitting, but we defi-nitely missed her pitching. We still were good, had a good nucleus, but to win 21 games without her was pretty dang good. Just to go into the season expecting you’d have your stud pitch-er and her bat and to have that not available was pretty difficult to overcome.” At the heart of the program was Pilkington. “Pilkington is all-world in my book,” Williams said. “She’s the pound-for-pound best competitor at the school. She always comes through in a pressure situ-ation. She always plays her best game when the stakes are the highest. She rep-resents as goal that if you work hard enough you can have it. Probably the single greatest person and athlete I’ve ever been associated with. She gave up catch-ing to play senior field. We win 22 games with her as catcher during her fresh-man year and she wanted to move to the outfield to help the team.” And Williams wants to find a way to remember the seniors down the road starting with Pilkington. “Pretty much the standard of our seniors was they would do whatever they could to help the team.,” he said. “I told Stephanie yesterday, that I don’t normally do this where I give out a lot of trophies. I said, I am going to give out a Pilkington award. It repre-sents the hardest working, team oriented player that gives it all every time that they take the field.” With a 15-5 record against regional teams, Williams said often times he got too much of the credit. “This group has won a lot of games,” he said. “They won me coach of the year last year. A coach gets a lot of credit, but the credit goes to the senior class. Three times reaching the playoffs three out of four years, that’s pretty good.” BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia High seniors Payton Sund (from left), Stephanie Pilkington, Taylor Douglass, Michaela Burton and Jessic a Keene will leave the Lady Tigers following three playoff appe arances.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2012 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 INDIANS: Red & Black game is on May 11 Continued From Page 1Badded three touchdowns on the ground. Jackson expects the load to increase with the work Baker has done in the weight room.” “He is by far the strongest quarterback we have ever had,” Jackson said. “I am excited about him.” There are plenty of positions for Jackson and his staff to find replacements. One senior is A.J. Legree, who signed with Kentucky. Legree had 694 yards in receptions and 10 touchdown catches. He scored two other TDs and led the Indians with six interceptions. Jackson is philosophical about it, explaining you can’t often replace a Division I player. “It is not so much A.J.,” Jackson said. “I am more concerned about replac-ing Soron (Williams) and (Jonathan) Dupree.” Williams rushed for 951 yards and 14 touchdowns. Dupree was a four-year starter on the offensive line, the last three at center. “Since I have been here, we have always had a tail-back that could do some-thing for us,” Jackson said. “Tavaris (Williams) will get the first shot. He has played tailback and has bet-ter potential because of his speed.” Williams had 22 carries last year. He had a 100-yard game and scored one touchdown. Trey Phillips could get the call at tailback, but Jackson wants to keep him at receiver with the loss of Legree. Phillips had 33 catches for 255 yards and two touchdowns last year. “Trey is capable of putting up (rushing) numbers,” Jackson said. “I know he can handle it, but the prob-lem is he has never played tailback and we don’t have any receivers. We have got to find another receiver.” Two-year fullback Zach Cormier also graduated. Last year, he gained 198 yards and scored three touchdowns. Jackson expects to have linebacker Kellen Snider double at full-back. “It could be an upgrade for us with Kellen at full-back,” Jackson said. “He was one of our bright spots when he came in at fullback against Trinity Catholic.” Protecting and punching holes for the skill people is always job No. 1. “Our biggest concern is the offensive line,” Jackson said. “We have (A.J.) Kluess and (Chris) Waites coming back. We are going to try (Randall) Fraddosio at cen-ter and Brayson Caley will play some tackle for us. He has the potential to be pret-ty good. We have to find a left guard. “We won’t have any seniors on the offensive line. The good thing is we will have them for a couple of years, but there will be growing pains.” Jackson said all the offensive linemen will play defense, as will most of the skill players. A bright spot is team strength. “We have 4-5 guys squatting over 400 pounds,” Jackson said. “This will probably be the strongest team we have ever had and they are young.” Jackson will take that youth into consideration in the spring. “We have a lot of kids that have never played,” Jackson said. “Our philoso-phy is to try and teach them and not do a lot of banging out there. In the fall we will turn up the heat.” After opening with three days in shorts, the Indians will have their first scrim-mage on Friday. The Red & Black game is May 11 and the spring game at Orange Park High is May 18. Indians hold annual Strongman competitionFrom staff reportsFort White High’s 2012 Indian Strongman competi-tion was Wednesday. Sponsored by the weightlifting team and coach Dan Marsee, 20 athletes com-peted in six events — Tire Flip, Plate Toss, Farmer’s Walk, Dumbbell Clean & Press, Sled Pull, and Carry & Drag. There were two divisions with a cut-off weight of 190 pounds. Jonathan Dupree was champion in the Over 190 Pounds division. Kellen Snider placed second and Andrew Baker was third. In the Under 190 Pounds division, Kyle Sullivan won a tiebreaker push off over Trey Phillips. Blair Chapman placed third.

ASSOCIATED PRESSKyle Busch celebrates winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Se ries auto race at Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, Va. on Saturday. Kyle Busch makes it 4 in a row at RichmondBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressRICHMOND, Va. — Kyle Busch capped a perfect weekend Saturday night by winning the spring race at Richmond for the fourth consecutive year. The victory snaps a 22race winless streak for Busch, and came a day after he went to Victory Lane for the first time as a Nationwide Series team owner. Kurt Busch drove his younger brother’s car to its first victory Friday night. As he celebrated his first Sprint Cup Series win as a driver, Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards both believed the win was taken from them. Stewart was upset because a caution for debris — he claimed it was for a bottle of soda or water that wasn’t an on-track hin-drance — erased his lead with 13 laps remaining. He led the leaders down pit road for a final stop, and Busch beat him back onto the track. Busch also easily pulled away from Stewart on the restart with nine laps to go, and Stewart was also passed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. to fade to third. “When the caution is for a plastic bottle on the backstretch, it’s hard to feel good losing that one,” Stewart said. “And we gave it away on pit road. So, we did everything we could to throw it away, got taken away from us.”

Still, the Tigers (14-12) know its win or go home from this point on. Obviously theyre hot right now, Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. The regular season doesnt really mean any thing. We cant just focus on their record. Theyve obviously done some thing right, so we have to go in there and do a job. One of the motivat ing factors for us is thats where our season ended last year. We dont want them to end our season two years in row. After helping the Tigers punch a ticket to the play offs, Kellan Bailey will get the start to extend Columbias playoff run. Bailey will be on the mound Thursday without a doubt, Clark said. If hes ready to throw, hell be on the mound from here out. Its one and done, so if he can throw, he will. Jayce (Barber) and Alan (Espenship) will be options in relief, but with Kellan on the mound were in a good spot. With a win, Columbia will take on the winner of Stanton Prep and Leon high schools. There is still a possibil ity that we could have a home game, Clark said. We have played pretty well on the road for the most part. Even though we didnt win the district cham pionship, we really have hit our stride. We just ran into a team that played a hot game. They made a bunch of diving plays and if some balls get by them, we have a chance to score. We still had a chance to win. Now we cant have a chance and not take advantage of it. We cant look back, because well be talking about it until next year. Bailey will go the dis tance if needed, but Clark is hoping he can ride his horse again Tuesday. If everything goes according to plan, hed be back on the mound Tuesday, Clark said. At this point in the season, it wouldnt be unheard of.

Lake City Reporter Week of April 29 May 5, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section CColumbia, Inc.Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia CountyBy DONNA BLANKINSHIP and SETH BORENSTEINAssociated PressSEATTLE Using spacefaring robots to mine precious metals from asteroids almost sounds easy when former astronaut Tom Jones describes it practically like clearing a snowcovered driveway. Jones, an adviser to a bold venture that aims to extract gold, platinum and rocket fuel from the barren space rocks, said many near-Earth asteroids have a loose rocky surface held together only weakly by gravity. It shouldnt be too hard to invent a machine like a snow blower to pick up material, explained Jones, a veteran of four space shuttle missions. But it will be risky and monstrously expensive, which is why some of the biggest and richest names in high-technology including the barons of Google and filmmaker James Cameron are behind the project. If the plan gets off the ground as planned, robots could be extracting cosmic riches within 10 years. Outside experts are skeptical because the program would probably require untold millions or perhaps billions of dollars, plus huge advances in technology. Yet the same entrepreneurs behind this idea also pioneered the selling of space rides to tourists a notion that seemed fanciful not long ago. Since my early teenage years, Ive wanted to be an asteroid miner. I always viewed it as a glamorous vision of where we could go, Peter Diamandis, one of the founders of Planetary Resources Inc., told a news conference Tuesday at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. The companys vision is to make the resources of space available to humanity. The inaugural step, to be achieved in the next 18 to 24 months, would be launching the first in a series of private telescopes that would search for the right type of asteroids. The proposal is to use commercially built robotic ships to squeeze rocket fuel and valuable minerals out of the rocks that routinely whiz by Earth. Several scientists not involved in the project said they were simultaneously thrilled and wary, calling the plan daring, difficult and pricey. They dont see how it could be costeffective, even with platinum By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThings are looking up for Realtors in Lake City, if first-quarter home sales are any indication. We are definitely in the brightest spot we have been in probably since , said Missy Zecher, a Realtor with ReMax Professionals. Zecher said its not only buyers that are getting good deals, but sellers are getting attractive prices as well. Zecher said the bulk of the houses she has sold are in the $100,000 to $150,000 range, though she has had some sales over $200,000. Sales are being made to a lot of first-time home buyers and people who have rented in the past, Zecher said. They are building their future rather than someone elses future, she said. Brittany Stoeckert at Results Realty of North Florida said she has seen an increase in the purchase of foreclosures valued at $50,000 and under. Stoeckert said the inventory of this range of homes has gone down significantly because houses are being snatched up so quickly. Buyers of these homes are predominately baby boomers who have opted to pull money out of their IRAs and spend it on houses, Stoeckert said. Its a huge asset, Stoeckert said. According to Stoeckert, the value of these homes is expected to increase in the next three to four years, especially once they have been refurbished. However, renting homes is a more profitable idea at the moment. Flipping houses right now is a horrible idea, Stoeckert said. It needs to be rented. That thing will be rented within hours. People are realizing the deals are out there now, said Nancy Rogers with REO Realty group. Rogers said she has closed five houses since January, three that sold for over $200,000. During the same period last year, she sold two homes. The majority of sales that Rogers has been making have been to locals. She said the key to selling homes successfully in this market is building a relationship with the client. Sometimes its not something that you get overnight, she said. Its not about a sale, its about a relationship. Patti Taylor from Access Realty of North Florida said she has seen a surge of investors from South Florida buying homes in the area. Most of the homes she is selling go for under $200,000. Taylor said buyers are more discerning about purchasing property than they used to be. We are seeing sellers look at a lot more inventory before they make a decision, she said. They want to look at everything that is available and they do not want to overpay. Within the real estate community, it is clear that sales have gone up but the reason for the increase is not as apparent. The jury is still out on the increase, Rogers said. Rogers said the increase may be due to banks loosening up on financing, people being in a better position to buy and the affordable prices available in the current market. Its hard to say, she said. I like to think that consumer confidence is rising. Mary Brown-Whitehurst of Coldwell Banker Bishop Realty said she thinks the market will continue to look up. Prices are creeping up, low interest rates are attractive, she said. I think things are leveling out. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterMatt Gilson, 28, stands in front of his new three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in southern Columbia County. Gilson purchased the 2,400-square-foot home in early March. The purchasing experience went great for me, Gilson said. I dont think the economy is getting worse. Its starting to look better. Ive been looking for over a year for a house that fit my needs, and I finally found it. I feel lucky. Prices are creeping up, low interest rates are attractive.

If you attend an Earth Day program, you will learn about many eco-friendly habits you can develop, from old computers and other electronic devices. To invest successfully, its important to develop good habits, such as staying invested in all types of markets, seeking tax-advantaged investments and reviewing your portfolio regularly to make sure its still appropriate for your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term objectives.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! 10 percent. Also, while the S&P 500s growth rate includes dividends, many EIAs exclude dividend returns from the rate on which they base your payment. With an EIA, your money can be locked up and inaccessible to you for many years, with early withdrawal penalties as high as 15 percent. EIAs are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), either. If the issuing company fails, you may be out of luck. Meanwhile, when you buy an EIA, you forgo the now-favorable tax rate for long-term gains. Any gain in an annuity is taxed as ordinary income. A guarantee that many investors unexpectedly receive is that they will be paying the maximum tax rate with an EIA. A good annuity can provide a lifetime income stream and can be a sound investment choice under the right circumstances. But there are many kinds of annuities, and equity-indexed annuities seem to serve those who are selling them more than those who buy them. Learn all about annuities (including the potentially good kinds) at fool.com/retirement/annuities/ annuities.htm.A Promising Silver DividendSilver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW) is relatively new to paying dividends, and its recent yield, near 1.1 percent, isnt the most compelling. But the company has a solid chance of upping it considerably. Mining companies are one of the last sectors youd think of when it comes to dividends and value, but Silver Wheaton can give you a hefty dose of both. It isnt a traditional miner. Instead, it enters into long-term contracts with silver miners, agrees to purchase their silver at a discounted rate, and then pockets the difference. Nearly all of Silver Wheatons contracts have the company paying between $4 and $5 per ounce, which allowed it to crank out gross profit margins in excess of 80 percent last year. While many love gold, silver has more practical uses. Its an essential component in many of todays popular electronic products, and is also a crucial element in jewelry, superconductivity and water purification. Silver Wheaton has almost double what its closest peers have in proven and probable reserves, with 798 million ounces. Based on recent silver prices, the company is sitting on roughly $25 billion worth of reserves. The company tied its dividend to its operating cash flow last year and tripled its previous quarterly stipend from $0.03 to $0.09. With its costs fairly predictable, Silver Wheatons dividend should continue to move significantly higher. The M otl ey Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich Sold Cisco Too SoonBack in the late 1980s, I bought some shares of networking giant Cisco Systems when the price dropped from about $9 per share to $4. It immediately dropped further, to $2 per share, and I sold in order to preserve my capital. Then Cisco went on a tear, with its stock price surging and splitting about eight times over the next 10 years. I could have retired on that stock had I held on. C.P. Henderson, Nev. The Fool Responds: Its important to not just look at numbers. Any stock plunging can keep plunging or it could rebound sharply. It all depends on what the company does, its business model, its competitive position, its financial health and the skill of its management, among other things. When a stock drops, determine whether its facing a short-term problem (it was overvalued, for example, or posted poor earnings due to oversupply) or a longterm one (its technology has been eclipsed by a competitors or has become obsolete). Look for great companies and aim to buy them when theyre undervalued. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Cisco.)Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

P.L., Watertown, S.D.AIts because a stocks price alone is close to meaningless. To draw useful conclusions, you need to compare it to something else, such as sales, earnings, cash flow, etc. Imagine shares of two companies, called Joanie and Chachi, each trading for $20 per share. If Joanies earnings per share (EPS) for the past 12 months is $1 and Chachis is $2, then Joanies priceto-earnings ratio (or P/E, representing price divided by EPS) is 20 while Chachis is 10. Youd have to pay $20 for each dollar of Joanies earnings, versus just $10 for Chachis. Already, Chachi looks cheaper. For a companys size, look at its market capitalization, not its stock price. Market cap is the current share price multiplied by the number of shares outstanding, reflecting the total price tag the market is placing on a company right now. If Joanie sports 10 million shares and Chachi has 2 billion, then Joanies market cap is $200 million and Chachis is $40 billion. Despite the same stock price, Chachi is a much bigger company. When studying a company, evaluate its quality and how inexpensive its stock may be, looking at debt and cash levels, growth rates of sales and earnings, trends in profit margins and return on equity, and competitive strengths. ***QHow can I find out if my company is covered by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. (PBGC)? R.G., Tarentum, Pa.AThe PBGC is a federal agency insuring pension benefits in private traditional pension plans (not defined contribution plans, such as 401(k)s).

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Securities and Exchange Commission have issued advisories about them, due to high hidden fees and other problems. The sales pitch will often sound too good to be true. (Some salespeople earn commissions of 12 percent selling you on these.) You may be told you can get the return of the stock market index without the risk of loss. Usually, there is a guaranteed rate of return. Your yield is typically based on an index, usually the S&P 500. But there is a participation rate that will lower your gain. For example, if your participation rate is 80 percent and the index returns 10 percent, your gain is only 8 percent (80 percent of 10 percent). There are also caps that limit any growth to a predetermined point. For example, if the S&P 500 gains 25 percent in one year, many EIA investors may earn no more than 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST. BY UNIVERSAL UCLICK (FOR RELEASE 4/26/2012) Associated PressIn a boost to animal welfare activists looking to get livestock out of cramped cages, Burger King will be the first major U.S. fast-food chain to give all of its chickens and pigs some room to roam. On Wednesday, the worlds second-biggest burger chain pledged that all of its eggs and pork will come from cage-free chickens and pigs by 2017, hoping to satisfy rising consumer demand for humanely produced fare and increase its sales in the process. Other companies have made similar but less broad announcements this year, part of an industrywide shift to consider animal welfare when buying food supplies. Even if youre buying a burger, you want to buy it from someone you like and respect, said food industry analyst Phil Lempert, who writes a daily industry newsletter.

The entrepreneurs of Planetary Resources have a track record of profiting from space ventures.

Investors and advisers to the new company include Google CEO Larry Page, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and Cameron, the man behind the Hollywood blockbusters Titanic and Avatar. Extracting water is key to deep space exploration, as well as for driving costs down, Anderson said. The water can be converted into fuel by separating the hydrogen and oxygen.

LIFE Sunday, April 29, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Herbs can add flavor and aroma to many foods. Check out just about any kitchen and youll find some cooking herbs within easy reach. Many of us are learning to flavor foods with herbs so that extra salt and unhealthy additives are not needed to make delicious tasting dishes. Did you know that many of these herbs can be grown right at home in your Florida garden? Better yet, you can grow some of these very attractive herb plants right in your landscape and let them do double duty. Let them be beautiful in the home landscaping and flavorful in the evening cuisine. Herb plants come in a variety of leaf and bloom colors, sizes, shapes and textures. A collection of well-tended plants in an herb garden by the front door can be neat and attractive, but can also welcome visitors with pleasantly teasing aromas. If dinner guests are arriving, just imagine how wafting scents will heighten their anticipation of your evening fare. Some of the heat-loving herbs that can be planted now include basil, oregano, sage, tarragon and rosemary. Perennial herbs, those that come up year after year, can have permanent homes in the culinary garden. Herbs that live one season and must be planted again next year are annual plants. Annuals can be planted directly into the ground, or they can be grown in attractive pots and set among the in-ground plants. Strategically placed containers can add interest and color to the herb garden. Basil is one of my favorites with its pleasant scent and spicy taste. There are many colorful varieties of basil including ones with attractive purple leaves or variegated leaves. You could make a lovely garden just from the wide selection of different basil plants available. They also come in different distinctive flavors such as cinnamon basil. Read about different varieties of basil by going to www.clemson.edu/ extension and searching for HGIC 1327. Sage is another wonderful herb plant to grow for its looks as well as its flavor. This small evergreen shrub with gray-green leaves can be used as a short border plant. But dont stop there. Try some accent plants with golden yellow leaves. Or maybe a pineapple sage that has strongly pineapple-scented leaves. Brilliant red late Herb gardens doing double duty Story ideas?

Associated PressJERSEY CITY, New Jersey (AP) Its a puzzle, a metaphor and a hit toy and in a couple of years, the Rubiks Cube will be a museum exhibition in celebration of its 40th anniversary. The toys creator, Erno Rubik, 67, was honored Friday at a gala at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. He has traveled from his native Budapest, Hungary, to help develop the exhibit, which will open in April 2014. The exhibit is scheduled to travel for seven years to design and science museums around the world. Rubik was an architect teaching a class at the Budapest College of Applied Arts in 1974 when he decided to build a cube to teach students about 3D space. He soon realized it could become a hit toy when students and fellow teachers couldnt put it down. It was mass-marketed in the West in 1980 and has been an enduring sales hit, selling more than 500 million all over the world, not counting the counterfeits, according to Rubik. Rubik insists he discovered the cube rather, than invented it. In my view its part of nature, and its not an artificial object; its a natural one, he said.By CAITLIN R. KINGThe Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. Its not his health but a family feud that is bothering George Jones. The 80-year-old country star posted a video message on his website Wednesday, thanking fans as he recovers from an upper respiratory infection. He then accused his daughter Georgette Lennon of spreading lies about him on the Internet. He was hospitalized for nearly a week last month and had to postpone shows. I would like to apologize for my daughter Georgette and her new husband for putting so much bad things about me on the Internet and Facebook, said Jones in the video. None of these things are true. They are all about money. I have gave and gave until I can no longer give. I will never let her go hungry, but I am tired of putting out, and I am not the person they claim I am. Lennon, 41, said she is completely devastated by his message and denies making any negative statements about him. Lennons mother was country singer Tammy Wynette, who died in 1998. All Ive ever wanted is to have a relationship with my dad and for him to know how much I love him and for him to love me and want to be a part of my life, she told The Associated Press. I had hoped that we could resolve this between the two of us privately and at some point he would talk to me. Unfortunately, things have escalated even further. Lennon said their relationship became strained a couple years ago when she became friends with her two brothers from Jones second marriage. She said Jones had a falling out with his two sons about 20 years ago, and does not communicate with them. She said her relationship with her father reached a breaking point last year when she was planning her Oct. 29 wedding. Her brothers were OK with not attending if it meant Jones would be there to give her away, but Lennon said she never got an answer from Jones until she saw on his website he had booked a gig on the same day. Her 18-year-old twin sons walked her down the aisle. Its been heartbreaking. When I lost my mom 14 years ago, I realized at that point in my life how absolutely short life is and youre not guaranteed anything, not another day. My father and I hadnt spoken in over a year at that point, and thats when I really decided I wanted to make an effort to try to mend things, she said. My family means the world to me, and that includes my dad, and I would never say anything negative about him or (his fourth wife) Nancy...I hope at some point he will sit down and listen to me and that we can talk this out and be a family again. Lennon believes that people have been lying to her dad about what they have seen on her Facebook account and elsewhere. Hes been told that I have sold stories to tabloids, which obviously I have not done and I can prove that I havent done that. Ive never wanted money or anything from my father, she said. With Jones recent health scare, Lennon tried to reach out to no avail, and she is afraid she offended him again. She heard from a friend of the family that Jones had pneumonia and told that to fans online, asking them to send prayers his way. Jones publicist insisted that he had only an upper respiratory infection. She said she was not trying to make it look like he was sicker than he was or cause problems with future concert dates and ticket sales. Lennon acknowledges the high price of fame has taken its toll on her father. In the past, there have been family members and there have been good friends and there have management and people on all scales of life who have taken advantage of him, and they have stolen from him and they have been nice to his face and then stabbed him in the back when he turned and walked away. So I know for him its been very difficult to know who to trust even in your family, and thats a very sad and horrible thing to have to face. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY APRIL 29, 2012 GARDEN TALK: Herb gardens double dutyContinued From Page 1D 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2012 Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx2DLIFE Stop by the Lake City Reporter for your complimentary engagement package.

The future groom is a 1973 graduate of Cook High School and a machinist at Hizer Machine and Manufacturing in White Springs. Its been a whirlwind of a year at Florida Gateway College. With the Loveloud concert on April 14, we bid adieu to the inaugural season of FGC Entertainment. And what a season it has been! When we began discussing the idea of replacing the Lyceum Series at the college, we were hesitant at first would people like the new format? Would our students and the community embrace the series as we hoped? Our first indication that the new series would work was a little more than a year ago when we brought Dont Stop Believin: The Ultimate Tribute to Journey to the Levy Performing Arts Center. The show marked our first official sellout in the LPAC, and if you werent there that night, you missed a tremendous performance the building shook more that night than it had in the previous 30 years. People are still talking about that concert! If the Journey tribute show made us think we were on the right track, the Alter Eagles tribute concert in July confirmed it nearly 1,000 people crowded into the Howard Conference Center for a July Fourth celebration. The Alter Eagles show was the largest performance at the college in more than two decades, just short of the record-setting Johnny Cash concert in 1983. Of course, records are meant to be broken and it didnt take long we launched the season with country music superstar Easton Corbin who shattered the FGC attendance record with nearly 2,000 fans attending his August performance. We were stunned in years past, we struggled to fill the 515-seat LPAC, and here we were, trying to handle a crowd that dwarfed our attendance numbers for an entire Lyceum season! Let It Be: Americas Premiere Tribute to the Beatles was our next show and marked another sellout. Approximately 1,100 people attended the star-studded Diamond Rio concert, and Lake City opened its arms for Sister Hazels Ken Block and Drew Copelands first performance here. Broadways Golden Baritone Norm Lewis marked another sellout and, Im assuming, set the record for the longest time a performer has spent in the lobby following a show. Norm, a graduate of the college, shook hands, talked with old friends and fans, and signed autographs for nearly two hours following his sold-out performance at the LPAC. As is typical, the Christmas show was well attended, and fans of all ages enjoyed the musical melodies of the Cigar City Big Band which even featured a visit from Santa Claus. We started 2012 with four shows remaining and were stunned as ticket requests for them kept pouring in. Performances by illusionist Jason Bishop, Golden Dragon Acrobats and Barrage were all sold out weeks ahead of time, and each and every time the performers delivered masterful shows that kept the audience amazed. And finally, Wellborn-based Loveloud rounded out the season and marked another sellout our seventh of the season! When all was said and done, including the Journey and Eagles tribute concerts that werent technically part of FGC Entertainment, approximately 8,000 people attended our 12 shows during the past 12 months. Eightthousand! Looking back, this is around the number of people who attended our Lyceum shows for the past five years combined! This, of course, doesnt happen without the support weve received for the past year now. Our President, Dr. Chuck Hall, could have simply rejected our plan outright it was more money, more acts, and more time spent scheduling and handling performances. Instead, he listened to the proposal, had faith in what we were trying to do and gave his approval. Then there are the many, many sponsors who jumped on board this season. If you look at the bottom of any of the posters weve placed around town, youll see a whos who of businesses, companies and individuals who believe in supporting the arts and making entertainment a factor in Lake City. And none of this happens without the buy-in from our students, faculty, staff and community. We could have the greatest acts in the world which I believe we did this past season but if no one comes, our series doesnt go much more than one season. But thanks to all of our supporters, this has easily been the most successful performing arts season in the history of the college. So youre probably asking, Whats next? We look back at our lineup this past season and see stars galore. And well admit its a little daunting to think about how we follow up on this. And while we cant announce anything just yet, Ill just say we have bigger and better things on the horizon. I think youll be pleasantly surprised by what we have on tap. The best is yet to come.

BY DAVID PORTERAssociated PressTRENTON, N.J. New Jerseys attorney general suspended two state troopers without pay Monday, one of them a 25-year veteran, amid reports they served as escorts last month for a group of high-performance luxury cars on a 100-mph trip down the Garden State Parkway, alarming other motorists. An attorney for one of the troopers, meanwhile, called the suspension of his client a public relations move made in the heat of a media spotlight that had intensified by Monday afternoon. Suspended were Sgt. First Class Nadir Nassry and Trooper Joseph Ventrella. Nassry has been with the state police for 25 years and Ventrella for six years. The alleged incident occurred March 30. Witnesses who emailed the state Turnpike Authority to report the incident said they saw two state police cruisers escorting the speeding cars, one in front and one in back. According to Turnpike Authority spokesman Tom Feeney, one witness said he saw flashing lights in his rearview mirror and had to speed up to get over to the right and out of the way. Once there, he said, the cars raced by at speeds upward of 100 mph. Their license plates allegedly were taped over. Another witness said he saw the cars weaving in and out of traffic at high speed. We will not tolerate any conduct by a member of the State Police that puts the public in jeopardy, as this unauthorized caravan had the potential to do, Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa said. We are thoroughly investigating this incident, and those responsible will face serious discipline. When asked about the incident at an unrelated news conference, Gov. Chris Christie, at one time the states top federal prosecutor, called it a dumb thing to do and said he was confident leaving the investigation in the hands of Chiesa and Police Superintendent Col. Rick Fuentes. I hated it when politicians behind podiums would lecture law enforcement people about what to do in law enforcement, he said. So far be it from me to be a hypocrite on this one. I trust the attorney general, hes a smart guy, and I trust Superintendent Fuentes. Nassrys attorney, Charles Sciarra, said in a statement emailed Monday evening that his client had been scheduled for an interview about the incident earlier in the day but was suspended before the interview took place. He implied that the attorney generals office was swayed by news coverage that started with The Star-Ledger of Newarks first reporting the alleged incident on Sunday. We hope that the powers that be will take a breath, exhale and engage in a fair investigative process with which we will continue to cooperate, Sciarra said. Either way, we will not permit Sgt. Nassry to be sacrificed to satisfy a public-relations agenda. It was not immediately known if Ventrella had retained an attorney. Sciarra added that the incident had been blown out of proportion and that charitable organizations routinely ask and receive escorts from the State Police to and from the various charitable functions they attend with their exotic vehicles.

Todays teenagers are taking a cue from elaborately staged wedding proposals, inviting each other to prom with flash mobs, scavenger hunts, homemade music videos and even airplane banners flying over the beach. And while coming up with clever or romantic ways to ask someone to prom isnt an entirely new concept, the effort and expense going into the big ask these days has given rise to a new term: Prom-posal. This year is the first time weve done prom invitations, said Remy Colin, owner of Aerial Messages, a company that charges $600 for a plane to fly a banner with a message on it. Its expensive as hell for a high schooler who doesnt have any money, but weve done two in the past three months, one in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and one in Tampa, Fla. Alex Chichkov, 17, arranged for a plane trailing Come to prom with me, Kayla? to fly over a student fundraiser his girlfriend Kayla Bennett was attending at King High School in Tampa in March. Ive seen it for weddings and I wanted to do something huge or unique, said Alex, a senior who paid for the flyover with money he earned working at a family business. I didnt want to do anything generic. In the history of the school, no one has done anything that big. Its going to be my only prom, first time ever, last time ever, with someone whos been my girlfriend for two and a half years, so it deserves to be that big. The plane flew over a student Relay for Life event, which raises money for the American Cancer Society, right before the talent show, while a sound system played a Michael Buble cover of the Frank Sinatra song, Come Fly With Me. Everyone was cheering and she had the biggest smile on her face, Alex said. Naturally, Kayla said yes. Rebecca Leet, 17, had an audience of over 250 people for a prom-posal from her boyfriend, Joe Nelson, 18. Rebecca and Joe both worked on a school performance of Thoroughly Modern Millie at Collierville High School in Collierville, Tenn. At the end of the show, their teacher, Keith Salter, told the audience to stay put for one more thing. Joe came out on stage, got down on one knee and pulled out a box with a ring in it. Its not what you think! Salter quickly assured the audience, as some gasped, thinking it was a teenage marriage proposal. Then Joe popped the question the prom question. She got all teary and said yes, Joe said. It made my day just knowing I did something memorable and she really enjoyed it. Nancy Darling, an Oberlin College professor of psychology who studies adolescent development, said teenage relationships go through stages, one of which is taking the romance public. Its a public declaration of I really want to go to the prom, and I like you! she said. She added that despite stereotypes of teens as sexdriven and aggressive, data shows kids are now becoming more conservative socially, with less sexual intercourse than previous generations. Were back to being romantic, she said. And while some prom-posals come from girls, most are planned by boys, letting them show off this whole sweet side that doesnt get a lot of chance to come up, said Darling. Weve really underestimated the romance of guys. The Heart Bandits, a romance event coordinating company that usually arranges marriage proposals, has, for the first time this year, gotten requests for help with prom-posals, said Michele Velazquez, co-owner of the company. The Heart Bandits created a scavenger hunt in Santa Monica, Calif., that led a girl to a classroom with candles, rose petals and her prospective date holding a Will you go to prom? sign. In Michigan, signs were posted on a road ending with an invitation to prom. Velazquez said shes had inquiries from other teens, but most cant afford the $300 pricetag. But many prom-posals are creative without costing a fortune. In East Greenwich, R.I., baker Michael Valente at Felicias Coffee got an order for a cake with a frosting heart and the words, Juliana, Prom? It was something new for me, Valente said. But I think it was so sweet. Search YouTube for prom invitation and youll find homemade videos of lone Romeos crooning to their beloveds, flash mobs dancing to taped songs during the formal ask, and groups of kids wearing T-shirts that spell out PROM one letter at a time. Keith Naranjo, a senior at a high school in Manhattan, Kan., put together a fruit basket with cute notes for each fruit like Lets go to the promegranate and Im berry serious. A lot of times youll see notes written on kids car windows with markers, said Will Sherwood, a student at Plant High School in Tampa who hid his prom invitation in a bouquet of flowers. Or there will be 2,000 sticky notes and each sticky note makes a letter. I saw one on Facebook where someone left tiny candles lit on a front porch that spelled out prom.Elaborate prom invites get new name: Prom-posals ASSOCIATED PRESSJoe Nelson, 18, poses with his girlfriend Rebecca Leet,17, in Collierville, Tenn., in this April 18 photo. Nelson presented Leet with a ring when he asked her to the prom. Troopers suspended over caravan reports

DEAR ABBY: I have a beautiful wife, a dog and an 8-year-old son I love to watch sports with. My son loves sports, but he has trouble accepting a loss. He’ll take out his disappoint-ment by beating the dog. My wife doesn’t want to get rid of “Patches” because she has had him since college. I don’t want to put my son through counseling because he said he’ll hate me for-ever if I do. What can I do? -GOOD DAD IN CLEVELAND DEAR “GOOD DAD”: Stop trying so hard to be your son’s sports buddy, and try harder to be a par-ent. At his age, he should be able to handle disap-pointment and control his anger and aggression. Do not wait another day to get him the counseling he needs! Children who hurt animals often go on to hurt other children. Your son should be evaluated by a mental health professional ASAP. By getting him the help he needs, you could be saving not one but two lives -his and Patches’. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My mother and I were discussing the subject of egg donation -something we’re both in favor of. I told her I have been considering donating my eggs because I don’t plan to have children. Mom simply stared at me in shock. Now when we talk, she casually brings up how she loves baby-sitting my young cousins and my niece. I have never par-ticularly liked children. I almost feel guilty about my decision. How do I explain this without upsetting her further? -CHILDLESS BY CHOICE DEAR CHILDLESS: Whether to have children is a personal choice. When she mentions how much she enjoyed baby-sitting your cousins and niece, smile, nod and say, “That’s nice!” ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My cousin “Linda” loves her cats. Last year one of them, “Wookie,” got very sick and she had to take him to the animal hospital. She sent a mass text message to all our family members indicating she would be unable to afford Christmas gifts because she had to pay a couple of thou-sand dollars on Wookie’s vet bills. Last week, I received an email from Linda about a website she has estab-lished soliciting donations to cover her cat’s medi-cal expenses. Every day since then I have received a text or email from her or her mother asking me to donate and to tell my friends as well. I’m sorry Linda’s cat is dying, but I don’t feel com-fortable soliciting friends to donate money for a cat who will not get better. How do I politely ask her to stop bombarding me with these requests? -CAT GOT MY TONGUE DEAR CAT GOT YOUR TONGUE: Don’t ask. Your cousin is trying desper-ately to save the pet she loves, and it would hurt her already sensitive feel-ings. Send her a donation for Wookie, about the same amount you would spend on a Christmas gift for her. And when you see her request for soliciting your friends, hit “delete” and let it go. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can make your dreams come true if you instigate what you want to see happen. Socializing or visiting destinations that are foreign to you will spark your imagination, leading you in a direction that will change your per-sonal life forever. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Handle family and friends cautiously. You don’t want to upset some-one who can disrupt your plans. Don’t let emotions or ego cost you mentally, physically or financially. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t get angry; get moving. Clear up clutter and organize a garage sale. Get rid of things you no longer need. You are bound to meet someone interesting in the process if you share memories and stories about particular items. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be cautious around someone who is acting impulsively. You don’t want to be drawn into something that could end badly. Concentrate on your own projects and plans, where you can accomplish the most. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Find a unique way to do things. Explore avenues that interest you. Communicate with people who can offer a different angle or approach to some-thing you want to pursue. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t give in to some-one putting demands on you. Take the lead role and follow your instinct. If you have to bend too far to please someone, rethink the connection you have with the person. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your heart will lead you in the right direc-tion. Avoid anyone who is demanding or dictating what you can or cannot do. Gravitate toward the per-son with whom you share the most in common and you’ll find peace of mind and a lasting relationship. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Open up and share your dreams, hopes and wishes. Your vision will inspire someone who can contribute to your plans. A partnership is favored, as long as you share respon-sibilities equally. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Keep your pur-suits out in the open. Make changes at home that will facilitate and accom-modate what you want to accomplish. A relationship with someone will flourish. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Buying, sell-ing or making changes to your current residence will bring good results. Investing in something you have to offer will lead to added income. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stubbornness will work against you. Avoid anyone trying to dump added responsibilities on you when you already have enough to deal with. Put your own needs first. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Avoid giving handouts you cannot afford. Collect old debts and secure your financial position. Taking control of your life and your future will send a message to anyone trying to take advantage of your generosity. Don’t hesitate to say no. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Spiderwoman?8 Phony laugh14 Possible barrier to romance 20 Dwells21 Natural gas component 22 Wife of Alexander the Great 23 Diet?25 Tea, e.g.26 Plains Indian27 Part of the Dept. of Justice 28 Wee creature30 Sign on a British restroom door 31 Be very successful at fishing? 34 Site36 Actor Paul of $PHULFDQ*UDIILWL 'RDFOHUNVZRUNDW a morgue? 8QERUQDIWHULQ46 Cardinal from New York 48 Prussian pronoun49 Something further?50 Throw large bank notes around? 55 O58 It begins )RUDVPXFKDVmany have taken inKDQG 59 What sisters often are 60 Net62 ___ DameBBBPHQWLRQHG64 How albums may be stored 65 Beige66 Conditional construct inprogramming 67 Take advantage of good Samaritans? 72 Desert homes74 Amount in the back of a pickup, e.g. 75 Cloudless76 Bunny man, for short 79 Bathroom fixture80 Abbr. in many a party invitation 81 It may be broken on a ranch 83 Kind of bean84 It may be raw)RUJHVRPHSHUVRQDO notes? 89 Director Lee90 Edwards or Andrews: Abbr. 92 Whatchamacallit?93 Breaking sports news, maybe 2XWGRRQHV buddies? 98 Cloudless102 #2 in a SURVHFXWRUVRII 103 Be a sadistic masseuse? 108 Without enough money 111 Coca-Cola brand114 Wee, to a Scot115 Anent116 Dr. Seuss title character 118 Send for a special bridal accessory? 121 Breakout122 Swank do123 Chorus, e.g.124 Thin in supply125 Like many a Broadway play 126 One getting roasted or toastedDown 1 Chile de ___ (hot pepper) 2 Lariat3 ___ Martin, British sports car 4 Given a ticket*RRGFKROHVWHURO for short 6 Razz7 Regard8 ___-haw9 Held off10 Baba au ___11 Overhead light?12 Ali trainer Dundee13 Some sports footwear 14 Word in the MGM logo 15 Owner of YouTube16 Go over17 Put on weight 18 Cadaver study: Abbr. 19 Mates24 Tennis champ Mandlikova 'LUHFWRUVVWDUW32 Garden ___33 Statistics method for checking means ([FXVHPH37 Heavy-handed measure 38 Next at bat)DGGLVKV footwear 40 Eat up, so to speak)LOPGLUHFWRU Stanley 42 Where Bertrand Russell taughtphilosophy, forshort 43 Some crosses7KH\UHPXVKHG45 Itinerary abbr.47 Many an anesthetic51 Oscar winner Tom52 Response to a shot, maybe 53 Too much54 Gandhi garment)LJXUHRXW)ROGDEOHIXUQLWXUH61 Seek election to64 Adams with the KLW*HW+HUH 65 Windup66 One way to be trapped duringwinter

6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2012 BY JOCELYN NOVECKAssociated PressNEW YORK — So let’s get all the puns out of the way, shall we? It’s the issue with legs — four of them. The doggone thing won’t go away. Has the presidential race just gone to the dogs? Or are we simply in those dog days between the primary season and the start of the general election? Whatever it is, the political Mommy Wars seem to have given way this week, at least temporar ily, to the Doggy Wars, with an effort by supporters of both Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama to gain points with the Doggy Vote. That’s dog owners, not the dogs themselves — at least for now. But let’s talk about those dog owners. We asked a bunch of them across the country what they thought. And many — though not all — were annoyed by the whole affair, calling it a silly and pointless distraction. “I hate seeing things detract like this from the real issues,” said Barry Leimkuehler, 53, of Phoenix. “Both sides are guilty of it. I guess until the debates start, they’re just filling up time.” Leimkuehler is a supporter of Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee, which gives us our segue. Because, to recap, it all starts with a story that has dogged Romney (sorry) for five years, that of Seamus the Irish setter and his unfortunate road trip to Canada. Seamus, goes the anecdote, was strapped to the top of the family car in a crate for the entire 1983 trip from Boston to Canada, during which he developed gas tric distress, which resulted in both car and dog having to be hosed off. Romney did so, and put the dog back up there. The story came out in 2007 and has since been used by Romney’s opponents to describe him as cold and uncaring. Dogs Against Romney, a group started by social media consultant Scott Crider, now boasts more than 50,000 friends on Facebook; Obama campaign staffers have a Facebook page called Pet Lovers for Obama. Campaign strategist David Axelrod in January tweet ed a photo of his boss and dog Bo in a car — inside, of course — saying “How Loving Owners Transport Their Dogs.” It came up again this week when Romney and wife Ann were interviewed by Diane Sawyer on ABC. Ann Romney insisted the dog loved to travel that way, and had only gotten sick that one time. “He had the runs,” she laughed, though the couple did not look totally amused. Then Wednesday, a conserva tive blogger pointed out a pas sage in Obama’s “Dreams From My Father” that mentions having been given dog meat when he was a child in Indonesia. That prompted a delighted outpouring on Twitter by amused Obama opponents, peppered with dog recipes. John McCain tweeted a photo of his son’s dog, with the line “I’m sorry Mr. President, he’s not on the menu.” A Romney spokesman revisit ed that nice picture of Obama and Bo, saying it was, in hindsight, “chilling.” An Obama spokesman tweeted back decrying the attack on a small child. On Thursday it all reached the White House briefing room, with chief spokes man Jay Carney saying that mak ing a big deal of the dog-meat episode “sounds like somebody who’s trying to get out of the dog house on something.” Puns aside, the episode didn’t seem quite so humorous to many dog owners interviewed by The Associated Press. (And there WERE many; our Twitter request for dog owners to contact us led to some 200-plus emails, including lovely dog photos, in 20 minutes, not to mention countless phone calls — a testament to the passion of dog owners.) “Really, both issues are stu pid, given what we are wrestling with as a country,” said Patricia Warne, a research scientist who lives in Rockland County, north of New York City, and owns four dogs — three border collies and a dachshund. Yet the Romney episode bothered her. “Given the money he has, couldn’t he have found some other way to trans port his family and the dog? I wouldn’t put a dog up there any more than I would a kid.” Still, Warne said, she consid ered it more an organizational failing on Romney’s part — “a lack of planning” — than a moral one. And since she is a solid Democrat, it hadn’t affected her choice of candidate. Not so Jennifer Mohr, who’s still deciding whom to support. Mohr, of Hollywood, Fla., owns a company that makes candles for dogs. Though she voted for Obama last time, she said she was disappointed in some of his failed promises and was consider ing Romney — until she heard about the Seamus incident. “As soon as he put the dog on the roof of the car, I bailed,” she said. “I don’t understand what that man was thinking. I can’t get my head around it!” Virtually everyone inter viewed gave Obama a pass on the dog meat, calling it a cultural difference. That included Ron Friedman, a Romney supporter from Gurnee, Ill., proud owner of a Pomeranian shih tzu. “He was a young kid,” said Friedman, who works in the health care industry. “It was the practice in that country. I won’t make this an issue when it’s not.” Of Romney’s Seamus trip, he said, “I understand how some people think this is over the top — no pun intended. But I live in a rural area. People here have their dogs out all year round. Now, if there were two dogs and one flew off ...” Friedman added that he thinks the whole Seamus affair is a “cyni cal ploy” — as is the dog-meat issue. He wants to see more sub stance. “Is this the worst they have on Romney? At least attack him on the issues!” Sherry Butler, another shih tzu owner who works in marketing in Phoenix, was horrified to hear of the Seamus anecdote, which she didn’t know about beforehand. “Are you kidding me?” she asked. “I would never do that ever! My dog is like my son.” However, Butler, an indepen dent who is still deciding whom to support, said she still thinks it doesn’t bear on Romney’s fitness to be president. “What it tells me about him is that as a dog lover, he doesn’t feel the way I do,” she said. “I won’t disregard it. But it won’t be the deciding factor.” Carol Bryant doesn’t agree. The 43-year-old Democrat — and cocker spaniel owner — thinks the episode does reflect on Romney. “It says something about the character of a candidate,” said Bryant, of Forty-Fort, Pa. “I’m mortified by it, and I do believe there’s a place in the campaign for discussion of it.”ASSOCIATED PRESSJenn Mohr, founder of Sniff Pet Candles, pets Rufus her 8-y earold Rhodesian ridgeback rescue dog in Miami, in this 2011 photo released by Sniff Pet Candles. Mohr says she can’t forgi ve Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney for making h is dog ride on top of the car during a 1983 family trip to Canada. But many dog owners feel the whole doggone issue is a distraction. New Mexico fat cat weighs in at nearly 40 poundsBY SUSAN MONTOYA BRYANAssociated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Meow can’t help but waddle. He’s one super-sized cat. The 2-year-old orange and white tabby tips the scale at nearly 40 pounds, and the Santa Fe Animal Shelter is on a mission to get the feline back into shape. Meow’s 87-year-old owner could no longer take care of him, so the pet was turned over to a shelter in southeastern New Mexico that called the Santa Fe shel ter for help. “The thing with this cat is when you look at it, certainly it’s obese. You see that. But it’s a sweet looking cat. His face is very sweet. It’s just incredibly fat,” shelter spokesman Ben Swan said Friday. Meow has been placed with a foster family. He’ll be on a special diet so he can start shedding some pounds. The goal is for him to lose at least 10 pounds so he can be put up for adoption. The shelter plans to post updates on Meow’s weight loss on its Facebook page. It’s not clear how the feline was able to gain so much weight in just two years. Adult cats typically weigh between seven and 12 pounds. “If you go online, you’ll see a lot of fat cats and these are people who have fed them just one thing, like meat or some thing that’s not nutritionally balanced,” Swan said. “Then the cat refuses to eat anything else and then they just get fatter and fatter and fatter.” Meow has one thing going for him. He’s not the fattest cat out there. That record belongs to Himmy, a tabby from Australia that weighed almost 47 pounds. ASSOCIATED PRESSSanta Fe Animal Shelter veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Steketee holds Meow, a 2-year-old tabby in this April 19 photo at the shel-ter in Santa Fe, N.M. Meow, arrived at the shelter weighing in at over 39 pounds, after his elderly owner could no longer care for the feline. Mommy Wars give way to Doggy Wars
