COMING WEDNESDAY Local news roundup. 87 65 T-Storm Chance WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterTUESDAY, MAY 8, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSP APER SINCE 1874 | 75¢ LAKECITYREPORTER.COM Vol. 138, No. 74 LCPDofficer loses licenseSuspended for 3 months in wake of Sept. 6 crash. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLake City Police Department officer David Broom had his drivers license suspended for three months Friday after he was convicted of failure to use due care (speed too fast for conditions) and a seat belt violation in connection with a traffic crash last year. Broom and local businesswoman Ruby Earline Parker suffered serious injuries when their vehicles collided at the intersection of Sisters Welcome Road and U.S. Highway 90 on Sept. 6. The 87-year-old Parker remained hospital-ized or in a rehabilitation center until her death five months later. Broom was fined $114 for the seat belt violation charge and fined $164 for the failure to use due care charge. The court also ruled the infraction resulted in seri-ous bodily injury to another person and the additional civil penalty mandated by state statutes of $500 will be imposed for each violation. Broom has six months to pay the fees. The case was heard LCPD continued on 3A Forestersbusy with2 areawildfiresFrom staff reportsSuwannee Forestry Center of the Florida Forestry Service is current-ly fighting two area wild-fires, according to spokes-man Kurt Wisner. One fire is in Columbia County, east of Lake City and south of U.S. 90, between two correctional institutions. At present it does not appear to be too large, but precise location and terrain will determine how quickly we can put a line around it, Wisner said in a press release Monday. Smoke is not currently an issue, but could become an issue. Caution is recommended with regard to potential smoke and fire response vehicles in the area. In Hamilton County a larger fire is burning north of CR 6 near N.E. 36th, Wisner said. FFS is responding with tractors from Lake City, Live Oak, and Madison, he said. One FFS fixed-wing aircraft and one USFS helicopter are conducting reconnaissance. Wisner added that residents should be aware of fire response equipment and possible smoke issues on roads in the areas of these fires. Chilly reception for polling-place planBy HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comCity council members unanimously opposed a proposal from the Supervisor of Elections that would make the Supervisor of Elections office the sole polling location for Lake City in 2012. Councilman George Ward called the proposal ridiculous. I think we will have an extremely low voter turnout, he said. Frank Singletary from the Supervisor of Elections office presented the plan to council on Monday night. Singletary said the plan was not concrete. We ask now for anyone in the community, if they have any input or suggestions or questions, please put it in writing. Please submit it to the Supervisor of Elections office by Wednesday, May 9. We will take all sugges-tions in writing, we will then respond in writ-ing, Singletary said. Council members Melinda Moses, George Ward and George Jefferson questioned Singletary about the proposed precinct map, however Singletary was reluctant to discuss the specifics of the proposal. Proposal would reduce the number of places to cast a ballot in Lake City to one.JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterDeep in thoughtSummers Elementary School students Garrison Land (left) and Gyro Delos Trinos ponder a math problem during th e 2012 Columbia County Math Bee Monday at the Columbia County School Board Administrativ e Complex Auditorium.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Wildlife officers tranquilize bear ORLANDO Wildlife officers were called to tranquilize a young male bear in an Orlando neigh borhood. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist David Turner said its usually best to wait for bears to leave backyards on their own. But with so many resi dents around Sunday in Orlandos Parramore neighborhood, wildlife officers thought it was best to tranquilize the bear and take it to the Ocala National Forest. Biologists estimated that the American black bear was two to three years old and weighed about 250 pounds. Courts:Homestead exemption heard TALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court is considering whether outof-state residents can get homestead property tax exemptions if they have dependents permanently living in their Florida homes.

The Miami-Dade County Value Adjustment Board granted David and Ana Andonie a homestead exemption on their $1 mil lion Key Biscayne home in 2006 because their U.S.born children were perma nent residents of Florida.

Associated Press Avengers smashes record: $200.3M debut LOS ANGELES H ulk, smash. Thats what Captain America tells the Incredible Hulk to do in The Avengers, and thats what the Marvel Comics super hero mash-up did at the box office, smashing the domestic revenue record with a $200.3 million debut. Its by far the biggest opening ever, shooting past the previous record of $169.2 million for the debut of last years Harry Potter finale. The Avengers added $151.5 mil lion overseas over the weekend to bring its total to $441.5 million since it began opening internationally a week earlier. That raised the films worldwide haul to $641.8 million in barely a week and a half, more than its Marvel superhero forerunners Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America took in during their entire runs. If distributor Disneys domestic estimate Sunday holds when the final weekend count is released Monday, The Avengers would be the first movie ever to haul in $200 million in a single weekend. While the number could dip below $200 million come Monday, Disney spent the weekend revising its fore casts upward as business kept grow ing. There arent even words, to be honest. Im running low on double takes. Every time we looked at a number, it just got bigger than what we could have hoped for in the bestcase assumption, said Dave Hollis, Disneys head of distribution. With this film, this weekend, anything is possible. Madonna: Beastie Boys Yauch was one of a kind NEW YORK Madonna said Adam Yauch, the Beastie Boys rap per who died Friday, was one of a kind and that the group was important to her musical his tory.

Yauchs representatives confirmed that the rapper, also known as MCA, died Friday morning in New York after a nearly three-year battle with cancer. Police found no evidence Lohan hit club manager LOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohan wont face prosecution over a night club managers claims that the actress struck him with her sports car due to lack of evidence and doubts about his credibility, prosecu tors decided Friday. Police had asked the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office to review whether Lohan should be charged with leaving the scene of an acci dent, but the office determined there was insufficient evidence to pursue a case. Police interviewed the manager, reviewed surveillance footage and looked at Lohans Porsche and found no evi dence that an accident had occurred.

By LAURA HAMPSON firstname.lastname@example.org With pencils flying across notebook paper, the coun tys top fourth grade math students raced to calculate miles per gallon, convert gallons into cups and figure cellphone overage fees. Nine county elementa ry schools and Epiphany Catholic School competed Monday night during the annual Columbia County Math Bee. Teams of three students and one alterna tive worked feverishly to solve problems without a calculator as the questions were read aloud. Some teams hit their buzzer and had an answer before or seconds after the moderator finished reading the ques tions. Eastside Elementary Schools team took first place and was one of the teams to quickly find the correct answer. The team of Emily Lamoreaux, Ryan Stubbs, Andrew Dicks and Marvin Farmer answered 30 questions correctly in two, eight-minute rounds. The fourth graders said they have always been good math students, but the com petition had them nervous. Emily said finding the mean of four large numbers was probably the hardest prob lem they were given, but she thought positively to stay focused. Andrew said multiplication is his favorite kind of math problem, while Marvin and Ryan said alge bra problems were their favorite to solve. The team has prac ticed twice a week since September for the Bee, said coach Andrea Cox. We are so proud. Theyve worked so hard. The students even worked on problems at home, she said. They just made Eastside proud, said coach Brooke Bedenbaugh. Organized by the Columbia County Math Council and sponsored by the Parks Johnson Agency, the Bee featured questions about converting units of measure, finding perim eter, multiplying with decimals, and finding the simplest form of a frac tions. Competing is a honor in itself because the teams are made up of each schools top four math students, said Dr. Daniel Westra, modera tor and Columbia High School math teacher. Westra said many adults couldnt solve the same problems without a cal culator. This was a very good competition, he said. We had some terrific teams.

Broom appeared with his attorney Jeff Seigmeister for the hearing, which was a non-jury trial. Broom entered a plea of not guilty to both citations but was adjudicated guilty. Seigmeister asked that adjudication of guiltbe withheld, but the motion was denied by Fina. With Fina denying the motion, the points will be assessed against Brooms driving record. The two offenses Broom was charged with were civil infractions punishable by either a fine or loss of driving privileges. According to a Florida Highway Patrol traffic crash report, Broom was cited for speed too fast for conditions and not wearing a seat belt. FHP reports said Parker was travel ing west on U.S. 90 in a 2006 Cadillac at an estimated speed of 16 mph when she turned left onto Sisters Welcome Road and into the path of Broom, approaching from the east in his LCPD cruiser. Reports said Broom was traveling at an estimated speed of 76 mph in a posted 45 mph speed zone when the crash occurred. Officials saidhe was not on a police call at the time. Parkers vehicle struck Brooms 2008 Ford Crown Victoria nearly head-on. Both cars spun after the impact with Parkers vehicle coming to rest in the right lane of U.S. 90. Brooms cruiser traveled onto the south shoulder of U.S. 90 where its left side struck the traffic signal support pole and dislodged a fire hydrant. Broom has been on workmans com pensation leave from the Lake City Police Department while he recovered from inju ries suffered in the crash. Police chief Argatha Gilmore said Monday that an internal affairs investigation has been opened in the case. LCPD: Officer loses license for 3 mos.

JAM: Economic impact $3-4 million Continued From Page 1A Deadline passes for qualifying by petition By LAURA HAMPSON email@example.com Twenty-nine Columbia County candi dates met Mondays deadline to file by petition for the 2012 general election. Candidates seeking countywide seats were required to collect 400 certified sig natures by Tuesday at noon, said Frank Singletary, Columbia County Supervisor of Elections candidate coordinator. District and commission candidates were required to collect 80 signatures, he said. Candidates have until June 8 to instead qualify by paying a fee, which is 4 percent of the salary for the position the candidate is seeking, he said. The candidates only have a small amount of paperwork left to do during qualifying week June 4 in order to appear on the ballot for the Aug. 14 primary, Singletary said. Incumbent P. Dewitt Cason, clerk of court, is running unopposed as are J. Doyle Crews, property appraiser; Elizabeth Liz P. Horne, supervisor of elections; Ronnie Brannon, tax collector; and William Keith Hudson, district four school board member. Sheriff Mark Hunter is running for reelection against Rudolph Davis Sr. and Carl Hodson. Incumbent Ronald W. Williams, Oni T. Allen, Randal Thomas and Clarence Tucker Jr. are running for county commis sion district one. William Dwayne Aldridge, Joseph Dupree Jr., Michael J. Gordon, Dennis Morse and Sylvester Bucky T. Nash are running for the district three county com mission seat. Incumbent Scarlet P. Frisina, Michael Preston Christie, Jason Paul Futch, Tim Murphy and Matthew A. Vann are running for county commission district 5. Kenneth L. Burt Sr., Terry L. Huddleston, Glenn J. Hunter and Grady D. Sam Markham are running for superintendent of schools. Dana Brady, Cedric L. Davis and Debra Robarts are running for school board dis trict two. Moses asked Singletary what the rea soning was behind the decision. I am only suggesting that you put it in writing and respond as an office and state the reasons and so forth, Singletary said. Singletary said the elections office was still waiting for input on the proposal from the county commission. I just dont understand the rationale, Councilman Eugene Jefferson said. Lake City resident Glenel Bowden spoke before the council to express concern about the elimination of polling locations in the city. I think thats an unfair burden being placed on voters within the city, Bowden said. I drove it out today. Its 1.4 miles from where I live to Richardson (polling precinct) now to vote, if I drove the short est the route. If I drove to the Supervisor of Elections Office, thats 3.2 miles from where I live. Ward called for discussion of the pro posal at the end of the meeting. Ward made a motion for City Manager Wendell Johnson to draft a letter opposing the proposal on behalf of the council. The motion passed unanimously. The council also approved two resolu tions to support the drilling of 400 feet of gas line on the west side of the city. The new gas line will provide a backup line to enable uninterrupted service to the west ern part of the city in case the original line is ruptured or damaged. PROPOSAL: Would reduce polling places in city to 1 Continued From Page 1A From staff reports A Georgia man, armed with a pocket knife, was arrested Sunday night and faces robbery charges after he allegedly stole items from a gas station after lock ing himself and others in the store. Ashley Quillian Wilson, 40, 2986 Gum Springs Church Road, Jefferson, Ga., was charged with robbery and petit theft in connection with the incident. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $51,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, around 9:10 p.m. Sunday deputies were dispatched to Sunoco, 3816 W. U.S. Highway 90 to investigate a report of a robbery. Authorities said Wilson entered the Sunoco and locked the front door of the store, then pulled a pocket knife and began to stab several food items and a cooler inside the store. The witnesses stated that the suspect appeared to be under the influence of alco hol and/or drugs, Seifert said in a prepared statement. The suspect was speaking inco herently. Wilson reportedly retrieved two drinks from the stores cooler and exited the store. The stores clerk called 9-1-1 to report the robbery and authorities issued a Be On the Look Out alert for the suspect. Lake City Police Department officers found Wilson at a Shell station on U.S. Highway 90 west. Wilson attempted to flee on foot from the police officer and the police officer used a Taser to subdue Wilson. Wilson was then taken into custody.

ONE OPINION What secret plans? This is in response to Glynell Presleys letter about the secret plans of the Republican Party to unseat President Barack Obama, What secret? They have made no bones about wanting to bring Obama down, and a lot of people hope and pray they succeed. In addition, it has absolutely nothing to do with race, although you would have people think it does. You, and others like you, try to make every opposing viewpoint or tragic incident about race if you possibly can. You somehow think it elevates your cause, but the only thing it elevates is the likelihood of a race war in the near future instigated by race baiting rabblerousers. What has skin color got to do with incompetence? Obama has failed everyone, including you. If he ever had an original thought, I havent seen it. He has not accomplished anything except a health care law, which is probably going to be ruled unconstitutional, and killing Usama Bin Laden by delegating our fearless Navy Seals to do the job for him. Commendable, but hardly courageous. In 2010, the voters of this country elected a group of Congressmen to do exactly what you say the Republicans are now doing. They were elected for the sole purpose of stopping Obama from doing any more harm to our country. They have been fairly success-ful, but as a result, the func-tioning of our government has almost ground to a halt, as you so aptly pointed out. The Hell, nos have come from both sides and will continue so long as the present administration is in power, but race plays no part in the political climate of today except when folks like you try to make it so. Quit whining, Mr. Presley. Ive watched you do it for many years, and frankly, Im sick of it. America is not being destroyed by the Republicans. Its being destroyed by those people of ALL RACES who have no inten-tion of working for a living, but reproduce like deranged rab-bits, while expecting those who do work for a living to support them and their progeny for the rest of their natural lives.Marian LewisLake CityNo new commissioners After reading your article concerning the three scheduled meetings for public opinion, I wanted to encourage as many people as possible to attend. The first of these meetings is on May 10 at 6 p.m. Judging from what I have seen so far, most of these so called amendments range anywhere from ridiculous to absurd. Why would anyone think that we should elect two more county commissioners than we already have on the payroll? We already have commissioners for each district. There is no logical way that two people can repre-sent the same district and we certainly do not need two com-missioners who think they hold the most power because they are elected county-wide. The object should be to decrease county spending, not increase it by adding needless new com-missioners. What is this business about removing someones right to appeal? Thats a sure-fire way to open the door to more lawsuits. Who ever heard of such a thing? Who came up with these ideas? As I understand it, the county administrator already answers to and serves at the will of the board of county commissioners. It is already possible to remove him if necessary. We cannot have five commissioners trying to run the everyday affairs of the county. It wont work. Who is going to appoint this so called citizens redistricting committee and what power will they have? These are all things that need to be addressed at this meet-ing, so please try to attend. Of course, the final say will be held at the ballot box should these ideas get that far.David A WillisLake City 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: firstname.lastname@example.org T he White House crowed on Friday about the unem-ployment rate dropping a 10th of a percent. At the same time, the number of people out of the labor force reached a record high. The Obama administra-tion can report all the funny numbers it wants, but the American people know in their guts that things are getting much worse. A recovering economy is supposed to create jobs, not shed them. According to gov-ernment math, 115,000 new jobs were added in April. But over the same period, 522,000 people dropped out of the labor force and were not counted as unemployed. This account-ing trick improved the official unemployment rate but left America with a record 88.4 mil-lion in the uncounted jobless category. Currently, over 35 percent of Americans are out of the labor force, and the number is increasing. The last time the employment figures looked this grim was more than 30 years ago when the nation was heading into a recession. Had the April dropouts been included in the official number, the unemploy-ment rate would have risen instead of declined. If the official jobless figure were cal-culated based on the June 2009 employment participation rate, when the recovery officially began, unemployment would be more accurately pegged at 11 percent today. The April figures reveal an accelerating and troubling trend. In March, there were about three people dropping out of the system for every new job created. Now the rate is four-and-a-half dropouts per new job. Luckily for the White House, the more people who shift from looking for a job to giving up, who transition from hope to despair, the lower the official number tracks. Q The Washington Times OPINION Tuesday, May 8, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Star Parkerparker@urbancure.org ANOTHER VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR R ep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee, pro-voked some angry pushback when he claimed that not only is his proposed sweep-ing revamp of the U.S. budget fiscally sound but also morally sound. In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Ryan said he drew inspiration from his Catholic faith. He argued that Catholic priority for caring for the poor should focus on helping folks move out of poverty: Dont make people dependent on gov-ernment so they stay stuck in their station in life. Catholics criticizing Ryan dont see it this way. They see him cutting back on welfare pro-grams that focus on the needy. But this is not a new debate, and its not limited to Catholics. Those on the religious left have long been criticizing religious conservatives, claiming theyre indifferent and care only about abortion and homosexuality. Its a critical discussion for our nation today and Ryan deserves credit for casting his proposed reforms in moral as well as economic terms. It pro-vides the opportunity to chal-lenge todays conventional wis-dom that morality and economy are separate universes having little to do with each other. Its not true. When you tell a poor mother that, to qualify for her check, she must demon-strate she is single, not working and has no savings, what are the chances shell get married, look for a job and put money in the bank? When this goes on for generations, what do you think this does to a community? Its no accident that in 1960, according to the Pew Research Center, five years before President Lyndon Johnson signed into law his War on Poverty, 61 percent of black adults were married. By 2008, this was down to 32 percent. In 1960, 2 percent of black children had a parent that had never been married. By 2008, this was up to 41 percent. Social Securitys Board of Trustees just issued a devastat-ing annual report. It projected the system going into the red in 2035, three years earlier than predicted last year. The sys-tems long-term unfunded liabili-ties are $8.6 trillion, more than half the entire U.S. economy. The Social Security payments that current retirees get are from the payroll taxes that cur-rent workers pay. What is driv-ing the system into bankruptcy is the shrinking number of those working per retiree. What happened? One major factor is were having fewer children. Fertility rates -the average number of births per woman -have fallen dramatically. According to the United Nations, the average U.S. fertility rate from 2005 to 2010 was 40 percent lower than during 1950 to 1955. John Mueller of the Ethics and Public Policy Center argues convincingly of the major impact of legal abortion to this dramatic drop in the ratio of workers to retirees. To solve our crisis, we need to sort out symptoms from causes. The bankruptcy of our entitlement programs is the symptom. The cause is loss of individual freedom and breakdown of val-ues, personal responsibility and marriage caused by entitlement culture materialism. Paul Ryan is right to see this in moral terms. We must change, and all change begins with character and personal transformation.

To help pay for it, he wants the rich the top 1 percent already contributes more in income taxes than does the bottom 90 percent to pay more for what he calls the privilege of being an American. Mr. Geithner, whose department oversees the Internal Revenue Service, should have taken his own advice: As a rich American 1 percenter, he once failed to pay his own self-employment taxes and improperly claimed his childrens camp costs as a dependent care deduction. Secretary of the Interior Kenneth L. Salazar has pulled off the near impossible: At a time when the known gas and oil reserves of the United States on public lands have soared, he has cut back on federal leasing of them to just about 2 percent of available offshore lands and 6 percent of onshore. When he was a U.S. senator, Mr. Salazar claimed that even $10-a-gallon gas would not change his mind about not voting to increase offshore drilling. There is the even stranger case of Energy Secretary Steven Chu, whose department helped oversee hundreds of millions in bad loans to green companies including Solyndra, First Solar and Solar Trust of America the Teapot Dome scandals of our times. Mr. Chu once quipped before assum-ing office that he wanted U.S. gas prices to reach European levels. Mr. Chu also once warned that Californias Central Valley agriculture might disappear because of global warming. True, it could decline, but more likely because of the administrations decision to divert irrigation water in hopes of helping out the 3-inch San Francisco Delta smelt. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. dropped charges against the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation. That may explain why he said nothing when the same group put out a dead-or-alive bounty poster on George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin shoot-ing case. The attorney general has referred to blacks as my people, and he has character-ized congressional oversight of his offices failure to rein in the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal as racially motivated attacks on himself. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis just tried and failed to draft a proposal prohibiting children under 18 from working in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials, even on fam-ily farms. She also wanted to turn over some farm training programs run by the Future Farmers of America and the 4-H to the government. Most Americans raised on a farm think the times spent doing chores with their parents, sib-lings and neighbors were the most important and rewarding years of their lives. The common theme with these Cabinet secretaries is loud, uninformed rhetoric; a lack of practical experience; and an expectation that there are rules for government gran-dees and quite different ones for the rest of us.Cabinet gone wild Q Scripps Howard News Service Q The Washington Times

It was an opportunity for students to inter act with the current legal system as well as compare it to that of 1930s Alabama. The late Rod Bowdoin first coordinated this event for Epiphany students in 2005, and it is very exciting that the judges, lawyers and court staff continue to support and enhance our reading of To Kill a Mockingbird each year.

Mayer Littman Being 83 years of age and having developed a tumor on the 8th nerve coming off the brain which is the main nerve for hearing I lost all hearing in my left ear. Unfortunately, at my age, Ive lost some of the highs and lows in my right ear and some of the tones necessary for conversation. With this situation, I was fortunate enough to discover Audibel. After a series of tests on my right ear, Audibel developed a state-of-the-art hearing device which now allows me to, not only participate in conversations, but discern the highs and lows which I had lost. I sincerely appreciate Audibels professionalism and expertise, thus allowing me to regain full use of my right ear ..which is a blessing at my age. I highly recommend Audibel to anyone who is having dif culty hearing, as they are a state-of-the-art organization to attend to your hearing problems. B Ingrid S. Williams The service and information I received from this of ce were outstanding. After receiving my hearing aids, I heard sounds I didnt think existed.

C Ira Strickland It makes a big difference in my hearing. Thank you Audibel !! D Johanne Artman Audibel Hearing Center Starke has been so accomodating and professional. they make you feel very comfortable and are always willing to address your concerns with your gearing problems.

Ruf an I never thought I needed hearing aids until I came to Audibel Hearing Center and found that I had missed so much before I had them. G Paul Huggins Being able to hear is one of the best investments Ive ever made. Hearing aids are well worth the cost to be able to join friends in conversation without the awkwardness of asking to repeat the words and phrases that I missed or didnt understand. H Reba Collins-Gibbons I love my Audibel hearing aids .theyre made here in the USA. I can nally understand what people are saying and I can even talk on the phone with them. I dont have to have the TV or stereo on so loud. After using two other brands in the past 12 years, these are far superior. I can hear the birds chirping now! Theyre small, so others cant see them, and they have three settings for your hearing comfort. I recommend you call for a free hearing test! I Tamara Moss Im so happy that I found Audibel. I lost my hearing in childhood, so I have missed a lot of sounds and conversations with people. My husband and my family are so happy for me! I want to thank Audibel so much.

Fowler cracks PGA Tour win column in playoffAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Rickie Fowler finally picked up his first PGA Tour win Sunday in what might be the start of a rivalry for years to come. Fowler brought style and substance to a sudden-death playoff at Quail Hollow and delivered a clutch shot a wedge into 4 feet to birdie the 18th hole and win the Wells Fargo Championship over U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points. The 23-year-old Fowler has been talked about as the next American star since he turned pro with his flashy colors and all-orange outfit his trademark. Now he has a trophy to back up the hype, coming in his 67th start as a pro on the PGA Tour. And he beat the 23-yearold McIlroy to do it. Im looking forward to playing with Rory for a long time, said Fowler, who closed with a 3-under 69. Its awesome. Its a long wait, but well worth it. Along for the ride was Points, a 35-year-old who had the tournament in his grasp until ending 40 straight holes without a bogey by making one at the worst time. He had a one-shot lead going to the 18th in regulation, hit his approach in a bunker and never came close to a par. McIlroy had a shot at winning in regulation, but-missed a 15-foot birdie putt.Insperity ChampionshipTHE WOODLANDS, Texas Fred Funk bird-ied the final hole for a 5-under 67 and a one-stroke victory over Tom Lehman in the Champions Tours Insperity Championship. Tied with one hole left, Funk hit his approach on No. 18 to 2 feet. Lehman missed his birdie putt, and Funk tapped in for his sev-enth victory on the 50-and-over tour first since 2010. LPGA Brazil CupRIO DE JANEIRO Thailands Pornanong Phatlum won the LPGA Tours Brazil Cup exhi-bition event, shooting a bogey-free 6-under 67 for a four-stroke victory over Taiwans Amy Hung. Phatlum finished at 13under 133 in the two-day, 30-player tournament at Itanhanga Golf Club. She had five birdies on the front nine to pull away. Hung shot an 8-under 65, the best round of the event. Paula Creamer finished with a 69 to tie for third with Chella Choi at 8 under.Stadion ClassicATHENS, Ga. Former University of Georgia play-er Hudson Swafford won the Stadion Classic on his old college course, closing with a 9-under 62 for a one-stroke victory. The tour rookie holed out from a greenside bun-ker for birdie on the par-4 18th to post 17-under 267. Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen and Luke List, coming off a vic-tory last week in the South Georgia Classic, each shot 65 to tie for second. Janzen birdied the final five holes and seven of the last eight. Spanish OpenSEVILLE, Spain Italys Francesco Molinari won the 100th Spanish Open for his third career European Tour title, finishing with a 7-under 65 for a three-stroke victory.
By JENNA FRYERAssociated Press TALLADEGA, Ala. B y Tony Stewarts standards, his tonguein-cheek assessment of NASCARs latest wreckfest at Talladega was tame stuff. But his four-minute Q&A following Sundays race was vintage Smoke, and boy did he deliver. The three-time NASCAR champion deadpanned his way through a flurry of questions about his afternoon, which essentially ended when he was caught in a nine-car accident four laps from the finish. Before the accident, Stewart said he had twice run out of gas and spent the entire race keeping one eye on his gauges to make sure his engine didnt overheat because of NASCARs rules at restrictor-plate tracks. I call it a successful day, a smirking Stewart said. He never broke character, answering each of the 13 questions with dripping sarcasm. Among the gems: Q Im upset that we didnt crash more cars. I feel bad if I dont spend at least $150,000 in torn-up race cars going back to the shop. We definitely have to do a better job with that. Q I had a blast. It would have been a lot more fun if I could have gotten caught up in one more wreck. If I could have done that, it would have been perfect. Q The racing was awesome. Its fun to be able to race and have to watch the gauges at the same time. It makes us as drivers have to do so much more. Q I think if we havent crashed at least 50 percent of the field by the end of the race, we need to extend the race until we at least crash 50 percent of the cars. Stewart saved his best material for his parting shot, which came as an answer to which style of racing pack racing or the two-car tandem he preferred for Talladega and Daytona. His suggestion was redesigning the 2.66-mile Talladega Superspeedway into a figure 8. That is going to be my vote next week, we make it a figure 8, he said. And/or we can stop at halfway, make a break, and turn around and go backwards the rest of the way. Then with 10 to go, we split the field in half and half go the regular direction and half of them go backwards. Well, that would at least be exciting to watch. And thats in large part what has Stewart so upset. Hes heard the grumbling the last six weeks about the current state of NASCAR racing, which has been marked by uncharacteristically clean races and long green-flag runs. Before Sunday, the last multicar accident was at Martinsville, five races ago. There have been very few yellow flags of late, and many of the caution periods have been for nothing more than debris. The very notion that fans want to see more accidents is offensive to drivers, and Stewart has made his position clear the last two races. He rebuked a reporter at Richmond for asking if Stewart was amazed there had been no accidents in three consecutive races. So he was ready again on Sunday, derisively insinuating several times that the fans were let down by not enough accidents to fill the quota for Talladega and NASCAR. Its not fair to these fans for them to not see more wrecks than that and more torn-up cars, he said. We still had over half the cars running at the end, and it shouldnt be that way. Its not necessarily accurate to claim race fans want wrecks. Yet wrecks are featured heavily in the marketing strategies of most track promoters, as are confrontations. Purists and particularly drivers prefer clean racing, and Stewart is annoyed that some find this recent stretch of incident-free racing boring. Its part of an ongoing disconnect between the competitors in NASCAR and the people who drive attendance and TV ratings. The balance is in providing excitement, and if it doesnt come from wrecks, then its got to come from story lines. The drivers must find a way to get people talking, either through controversy and drama, or personalities and rivalries. Associated PressNEW YORK Carmelo Anthony scored 41 points, Amare Stoudemire had 20 points and 10 rebounds in his return from a cut hand, and the New York Knicks snapped an NBA-record, 13-game playoff losing streak, beating the Miami Heat 89-87 Sunday in Game 4 of their first-round series. Anthony made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 54.5 seconds left as the Knicks overcame another serious injury to win a playoff game for the first time since April 29, 2001. Baron Davis dislo-cated his right kneecap in the third quarter. LeBron James scored 27 for the Heat, who will try to close it out in Game 5 at home on Wednesday. Dwyane Wade had 22 points but missed a 3-point attempt with 1.6 seconds left. Wades errant shot set off a loud celebration from Knicks fans who hadnt seen their team win in the post-season since beating the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of a best-of-five series.Lakers 92, Nuggets 88DENVER Kobe Bryant scored 22 points, Andrew Bynum added 19 and the Lakers stars got plenty of help from their supporting cast while taking a 3-1 lead in their first-round playoff series. The Lakers can wrap it up today when the series shifts back to Staples Center for Game 5. Reserve Jordan Hill was big for L.A., posting a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds, and Steve Blake scored 10 points, including a key 3-pointer in the final minute as the Lakers overcame a six-point halftime deficit. Ramon Sessions scored 12 points and also had a 3 in the final minute for the Lakers.Celtics 101, Hawks 79BOSTON Paul Pierce scored 24 points in 18 minutes and the Celtics opened a 37-point third-quarter lead before coast-ing to the victory and a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Celtics can finish off the Hawks in Atlanta today. Two nights after his triple-double helped turn back the Hawks in overtime in Game 3, Rajon Rondo had 20 points and 16 assists as the Celtics got some much-needed rest for their aging and injured roster. Josh Smith returned after missing Fridays game and had 15 points and 13 rebounds for Atlanta. Al Horford, who played for the first time in almost four months, scored 12 points. Rondo, whose tripledouble Friday was the sev-enth of his career, may have been even better in Game 4, shooting 8 for 11 from the floor.76ers 89, Bulls 82PHILADELPHIA Spencer Hawes scored 22 points and Jrue Holiday had 20 to help Philadelphia beat top-seeded Chicago for a 3-1 lead in the first-round series. Andre Iguodala had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers, who have won the last three games after dropping Game 1 in Chicago. Holiday stretched the lead with consecutive 3-pointers late in the game to put the Sixers one win away from becoming only the fifth No. 8 seed to win an opening-round series. Memphis pulled it off last season against San Antonio, and Golden State (2007), New York (1999) and Denver (1994) also accom-plished the rare feat Carlos Boozer had 23 points and 11 rebounds, and Taj Gibson added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulls, who played without Derrick Rose (torn ACL) and Joakim Noah (sprained ankle). Rose is out for the season and Noah is day to day for the rest of the series.

DEAR ABBY: I have been with my boyfriend Paul for four years. We have a child together, and we each have a child of our own. We have lived together for three years, and our family life is great. However, when I was preg-nant with our son, Paul contacted an ex on a social network. One day he left his computer open, and I saw that their conversa-tions were less than inno-cent. I was upset and I said something immediately. We have stayed together, but ever since then Im having a hard time trusting Paul. Yesterday I found a text of his to a former bosss daughter. Paul was telling her how hot she is. Abby, am I overreacting when I think Paul is going to cheat? -ALARMED IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR ALARMED: Youre not overreacting. Paul is cheating on you emotionally, and doesnt appear to be entirely com-mitted to your relationship. In fact, it appears he is looking for some outside adventures. You should not only be concerned, you should also be furious about what hes doing. This wont stop until YOU draw the line. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My parents divorced during my junior year of high school. I am now a sophomore in college. I have done my best to maintain a good relationship with Dad, although I chose to live with my mother during the custody battle. Since the divorce, Dad has verbally, emotionally and financially abused me to the point that I no lon-ger want him in my life. I miss having a father figure, even though no amount of counseling could ever mend our bro-ken relationship. We went through two years of coun-seling, and the only thing I learned was that Dad believes he has done noth-ing wrong and my feelings about him are because of Mom. How can I get over the pain and hurt my dad has caused me? -HEARTBROKEN IN MICHIGAN DEAR HEARTBROKEN: It will probably take one-on-one counseling for you to establish enough emotional independence to toughen up. Your fathers unwillingness (or inability) to take responsibility for his mistakes is an indica-tion that, as much as you may need and want a father, he will never be the parent you would like him to be. It will take time and work on your part to get beyond this loss -and it IS a loss -so the ideal place to begin your journey would be by talking to a psychologist at the student health center. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My 6-yearold cousin wanted to make a lemonade stand, so my sister and I helped her, but she got discouraged because nobody would buy any. She was so angry she started yelling, then she dropped the F-word. My sister and I were shocked that a 6-year-old would know that word. She said her classmate told it to her. We told our parents, but were not sure if we should tell her mother because she might think my sis-ter and I taught it to her. Should we tell her mother or let it slide hoping she will forget the word and move on? -NOT SURE IN SAN DIEGO DEAR NOT SURE: Your parents should tell your aunt, just in case your cousin doesnt forget the word. That way her mother can explain to her that there are certain words polite people dont use because they are unac-ceptable. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Communication will help define what you want and what you will receive. Its important to be precise to avoid misunderstand-ing. Love is highlighted, along with improvements that will boost your ego, enabling you to present a perfect picture. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Learning something new will help you find ways to use your skills more diversely. Spreading out and manipulating your services to fit a wider vari-ety of needs in your com-munity will ensure a stable financial position. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont raise suspicion or create a situation that will cause problems for you at home or within a partnership. You are best to keep what you think, feel and plan to do out in the open if you dont want to harm your reputation. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your ability to adapt to whatever situation or chal-lenge you face will deter-mine how far you get. An opportunity to partner with someone you have worked with in the past will enable you to focus on obtaining greater status. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Pick up a new interest or sign up to learn something that will help further your goals. Dont sit idly wait-ing for others to pass you by. Take the initiative and do whatever it takes to stand out and take control. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself. You dont want to start something you cannot fin-ish. Concentrate on meet-ing new people and visiting places youve never been before. You need to stimu-late your senses and reju-venate. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do something nice for a loved one. Participating in activities that will help you improve mentally, physically or emotionally will leave you better pre-pared to take care of press-ing personal matters that are holding you back. Love is in the stars. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Be receptive to what others offer, but be wary of whats expected in return. You can test the waters, but only if you ask questions and stay abreast of what everyone else is contributing. Keeping things fair will be neces-sary. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your emotions hidden until you know where you stand. Too much talk may mis-lead someone who is unde-cided about something that is important to you. Dont argue when you should be compromising. Make love, not war. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Put more time and effort into your home, surroundings and personal relationships. You will be criticized if you are emotion-ally neglectful. An unexpect-ed change will hit you hard, adding to your responsibili-ties if you take someone for granted. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Consider what you have to offer and find an outlet for a service that can bring in a little extra cash. A change will do you good and spark some interesting ideas that can be turned into a worth-while venture. Love is highlighted. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen carefully to whats being said. An emo-tional matter left unattend-ed will lead to responsibili-ties that will be restrictive. Dont try to replace what doesnt need to be fixed. Focus on updating what you already have in place. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
