Courtney Lynn Combs, 18, 261 NW Wilson St., was charged with grand theft and dealing in stolen prop erty in connection with the case. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $20,000 bond on Friday.

On May 4 Broom had his drivers license suspended for three months after he was convicted of failure to use due care (speed too fast for conditions) and a seat belt violation in con nection with the crash. According to Columbia County court documents, Brooms attorney, Jeff Siegmeister, filed a motion for a new hearing on Thursday, May 10. No judge has been assigned to the case yet and the case is not an appeal to overturn the ruling from last weeks decision. Court documents indi cate the new hearing is being requested because Siegmeister said the court erred in allowing the intro duction of video tape evi dence showing Broom driv ing without laying a proper foundation for use of video evidence in the case. The video tape evidence comes from Brooms in-car video. Without the laying of a proper foundation for admis sion of said videotape, said videotape was inadmissible under the Florida Evidence Code for use in civil cases, Officer seeks new hearing in crash case Combs JEWELS continued on 3A By HANNAH O.

In the document, Siegmeister cites several cases where legal precedent has been established which did not allow the use of video tape evidence in simi lar cases. Essentially the motion is asking the court to recon sider its key evidentiary rul ing essentially admitting the video tape from the car, Siegmeister said. Because that video tape, based on what the judge said, was key to his ruling as well as it was major in the FHP inves tigation. A lot of its (FHP) speed determination and other evidence came from that video. Siegmeister said he also objected to having the video as evidence, but the judge overruled his objection. Broom and local business woman 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 hospitalized or in a rehabili tation 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 two offenses Broom was charged with were pun ishable 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 traveling 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 said he was not on a police call at the time. Dramatic drop in FCAT scores HEARING: LCPD officer Continued From Page 1A JEWELS: Suspect 18 Continued From Page 1A By HANNAH O. BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com Florida Leaders Organized for Water discussed plans Monday to conduct a thorough review of the permit issued to the Jacksonville Electric Authority by the St. Johns Water Management District. That permit that was issued for 162 million gallons a day actually took the place of 17 prior consumptive use permits, Jerome Kelley from Bradford County said. FLOWs legal commit tee has identified a legal firm in Tallahassee, Sniffen and Spellman, that they are inter ested in appointing. The firms initial scope of work would be dedicated to reviewing the JEA permit. The firm would not be asked to review all consumptive use permits issued by the water management districts. I am confident that they have the background and knowledge to do what we need them to do, Hamilton County Commissioner Randy Ogburn said. The firm was also recom mended by the Small County Coalition, a group composed of county commissioners from 38 counties in Florida. Doug McNichol, councilman from Lee, said the politics of the permit alone would be worth investigating. There may be a bunch to be gained on that JEA permit just in knowing where the poli tics was, who got transferred to what water management dis trict immediately before, imme diately after, McNichol said. Ogburn responded that the point of the FLOW board is to make sure rules are being fol lowed. When we do have rules and laws that are not followed, we dont get anything done, Ogburn said. I think thats why were here. I think thats why we are looking at hiring that firm that can guide us of where we need to be. FLOW may hire firm By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com A Virginia man faces felony charg es after he was arrested Sunday after attempting to rob a local gas station, authorities said. Daniel Ray Messersmith, 47, of 21549 Green Springs Road, Abingdon, Va., was charged with robbery, criminal mischief, pos session of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility and denied bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, a man entered the Chevron station, 3828 U.S. Highway 441, approached the clerk and demanded money. The clerk refused to give the man any money and the suspect became enraged and smashed the stores credit card read er on the counter and then punched through a glass display case. The suspect also attempted to steal the stores cash register, but was unsuccessful. He exited the store and fled the scene in a brown Chevrolet pickup truck. The suspect was last seen entering the west bound lanes of Interstate 10. Columbia County emergency communications personnel acted quickly to broadcast the description of the suspect and his vehicle to local and surrounding law enforce ment agencies, said Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer. Sheriffs office deputies positioned them selves on the highway corridors that the suspect could have possibly been traveling on. Sheriffs office deputy Sgt. Keith Jackson saw the suspect vehicle trav eling south on Interstate 75. Sgt. Jackson and Cpl. Jay Swisher conducted a traffic stop on the sus pect vehicle when it exited onto State Road 47. Messersmith was taken into custody without incident. Deputies observed injuries to the suspects right hand that were con sistent with the glass display case being damaged, Seifert said. The suspects clothing and vehicle also matched the description provided by the witnesses. Authorities found that Messersmith had $1,300 of his own money in his possession, but they also found a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle. The suspect was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment of his injured hand, Seifert said. The sus pect refused any treatment and was transported to the Columbia County Detention Center. By BILL KACZOR Associated Press TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) The State Board of Education has set an emergency meeting for Tuesday to consider lowering the passing grade on the writing por tion of Floridas standardized test, after preliminary results indicated only about a third of students would pass this years tougher exam. That compares with a passing rate of 80 percent or more last year and provides another open ing to critics of high-stakes test ing. Theyve asked students to do more, but thats pretty dramatic, said Florida Education Association spokesman Mark Pudlow. We need to examine what led to this, not just paper over the problem. The statewide teachers union has opposed Floridas use of stan dardized tests to evaluate teachers and grade schools. Results on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, are the major factor for determining A-B-C-D-F grades the state uses to reward top schools and sanction those at the bottom of the spectrum. This is the first year students and schools will be assessed on the basis of tougher tests and scoring systems. Thats expected to result in more students fail ing the FCAT and lower school grades. The board, though, agreed at its regular meeting last week not to let any school drop more than one letter grade this year to help them adjust to the rigorous new standards. This years FCAT writing exam was made more difficult by increasing expectations for the correct use of punctuation, capi talization, spelling and sentence structure, as well as the quality of details used to explain, clarify or define. The board also increased the passing grade from 3.5 to four on scale of zero to six. The preliminary results show only 27 percent of fourth-grad ers received a passing score com pared with 81 percent last year. For eighth-graders it was 33 percent down from 82 percent in 2011. For 10th-graders it was 38 percent a drop from 80. The board will consider an emer gency rule proposed by Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson to drop the passing score to 3.5 at its conference call meeting. Thats expected to increase the number of students passing the exam to 48 percent for fourth grade, 52 percent for eighth grade and 60 percent for 10th grade, still well below last years results. This incident again demon strates that Florida school grades reflect profoundly political deci sions, not objective measures of teaching and learning, national high-stakes testing critic Bob Schaeffer wrote in an email. How can a measure which fluctuates from 81 percent to 27 percent pro ficient in just one year even meet the laugh test? Schaeffer is spokesman for FairTest: National Center for Fair & Open Testing in Jamaica Plain, Mass. A Department of Education spokeswoman did not immediate ly respond to a message seeking comment. Virginia man faces felony charges after attempting to rob gas station probably in her home for legitimate reasons on the day of the theft. The suspect was a guest in the victims house, said Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public infor mation officer, who noted the stolen jewelry consisted of several pieces and was worth approximately $42,000. The jewelry was recently appraiser by a qualified appraiser. The victim had documentation of the appraisals. Columbia County Sheriffs Office detective Glenn Wyche found the stolen jewelry on Friday, May 11, at a local coin and gold store. The stores proprietor still had the jewelry and told Wyche that he paid the suspect $500 for the jewelry. The jewelry was returned to the owner. Following leads in the case Wyche was able to find the suspect at her home. When he confronted her with the findings, she reportedly admitted to him that she had stolen and sold the jewelry, reports said. Combs was then arrested around 1 p.m. Friday and taken to jail without incident.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Phil Hudginsphudgins@cninewspapers.com Q The Washington Times OPINION Tuesday, May 15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A This is a response to a recent letter to your newspaper entitled “Nothing but no’s from GOP.” The writer of the book mentioned in the letter was obvi-ously a Democrat. All Republicans, most independent party members, and some Democrats understand the great financial burden Obama has put on the taxpay-ers in less than four years. Trillions have been wasted that the taxpayers will be paying for, for infinity. The writer called some of the people in this country terrorists (in all capital letters) when one of their main concerns is where this country is headed under the leadership of the dummycrats. More on this later in this communication. It appears some of the verbiage used by the writer in his letter was taken from the book he mentioned. He mentioned the book “Shows that they had a racial contempt for Mr. Obama.” Obama is one-half Muslim (his father) and one-half white athe-ist (his mother). He is one-half white so there is nothing “racial” about him. He is what he is, but certainly not black as most blacks want to believe he is due to the color of his skin. In my opinion, people who think logi-cally, and with common sense, understand that. In my opinion what the writer needs to be concerned with is the way Obama bows to Muslim world leaders. This has been documented. No other president has ever done this, but then again when you are half Muslim, what do you expect? Christians expect more from the president of this coun-try. Muslims hate every living Christian and what they call their holy book indicates they should all be killed. Wise up. The writer mentioned the names of some in this country he called terrorists. The ones he named are against giving China billions of dollars to build infra-structure there, giving China billions of dollars to have roads and bridges built or repaired in our country. They also, like most taxpayers, are upset this government recently gave bil-lions of dollars to Russia to accomplish something that can be harmful to our country. And people in this country wonder why the unemployment rate is so high! The present govern-ment also pays billions of dollars to the illegals in this country to give them free everything, when there is a law on the books to send every one of them back from hence they came. Add the billions this government spends for babies being born out of wedlock, which is spent to sup-port the mothers and to have these children taken care of by their mothers or grandmothers at taxpayer expense. Nothing is legitimate when it comes to taxpayer money being spent on the items I have mentioned. The writer had “terrorists” in all capital letters in his letter. Has he ever seen a terrorist? I think not. I wonder if the writer ever served our federal government in one of our military services, and been up against what we called the enemy, which today are called terrorists because that is what they are. I am a military retiree, disabled veteran, and served in the country of Korea during that war. An example of not serving our federal gov-ernment is someone who has served time for violating the laws of this land. The writer has had several letters published in the local newspaper over a period of time. One thing that always seems to be included is a comment that could be interpreted as racial. This could make one wonder if he gets a kick out of playing the racial card. The writer finished his letter with a remark about Roman history. He got that one right! The majority of taxpayers in this country realize Rome fell due to internal problems. We also understand the same thing is happening now in this once great country, and it has been going on for the past three and one-half years. He asked, in conclusion, “Could America be headed in that direction?” Because of the actions by the clowns in Washington we are headed there and at a very fast pace. The voters need to wake up before November, before some more Obama “change” wipes this country off the map. It is a sad day when the voters in this country either do not see, or care, what is happening to us. Dumbness would be one answer to this problem.Charles A. MorganLake City I f you wanted to film a documentary on the meaning of life, whom would you ask to direct it? Would it be the director of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the director of The Nutty Professor or the director of Frankenstein: The College Years? Well, the same guy directed all three, plus Evan Almighty and Bruce Almighty, both of which starred Morgan Freeman as God. His name is Tom Shadyac. His mission was to find the answers to two seem-ingly unanswerable questions: What’s wrong with the world and what can we do about it? He got together a four-person film crew and traveled around the world, seeking wisdom from theologians, scientists, philosophers and authors. His quest didn’t just reveal itself in a burning bush out-side his Los Angeles home of 17,000 square feet. The calling came after he suffered post-concussion syndrome resulting from a serious bicycle accident in Virginia in 2007. He experi-enced months of acute head-aches and hyper-sensitivity to light and noise. He became severely depressed. He thought he was going to die. But then he got better. And that’s when he started his ambitious project. The documentary is titled I Am. Sounds spiritual, doesn’t it? And it is, in a way, but not the way believers think of I Am, referring to God himself. It’s worth watching because it’ll make you think about the world and why we often don’t quite get it. Several in my exercise group had seen the film, so after grunting and sweating for an hour one morning last week, we gathered around a coffee cake—low-calorie, of course—and talked about the documen-tary, its better moments and its flaws. Why, someone asked, can’t we live in harmony with each other? Deer can. Answer: We have free will. Animals have instincts. Yet, most human beings want to do good things for others. Look what happened after the World Trade Center was attacked. We weren’t Democrats and Republicans. We were peo-ple—American people—willing to pull together. Unfortunately, it never lasts. Months later, we were Democrats and Republicans again. But just being kind is not the whole answer. Can you even imagine that bin Laden would have gone away if we’d just been nice to him? Shadyac is right, though. We shouldn’t sit back in our warm homes and do noth-ing. Shadyac did something. He gave away much of his fortune. He sold his mansion and moved to a (fancy) mobile home park. He started riding a bicycle to work. Still, ego appears to drive the train. Shadyac is helping peo-ple, but he’s no male Mother Teresa. He’s just a man who realized that the most satisfied people are those who serve, not those with the most stuff. And for that, he deserves a round of applause. Movie director changes lifestyle The time is now to wake up P resident Barack Obama now com-mands center stage following his formal announcement that, yes, he supports same sex mar-riage. But for perspective on how we got to this point, we should shift our sights to three days before the president’s announcement. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan appeared on MSNBC where he responded “yes, I do” when asked if he supports same sex marriage. If he had said homosexuality is immoral there would have been demands for his ouster. On the marriage issue, the national transformation has been breathtaking. A new Gallup poll shows the nation evenly divided -50 percent saying same-sex marriage should be valid and 48 percent saying it should not be. When Gallup asked the same question in 1996, 68 percent opposed legalization of same sex marriage against 27 percent in favor. Our public schools are controlled locally. But the influence of the federal government is substantial. The Department of Education, per its website, “administers a budget of $68.1 billion in discretionary appro-priations serving nearly 16,000 school districts and approxi-mately 49 million students.” It’s not trivial that Duncan, the man who oversees this massive enterprise molding the minds of our nation’s youth, publicly rejects the traditional defini-tion of marriage in favor of one saying it just takes two (so far) warm bodies of any gender com-bination. As one court ruling after another has purged religious expression from our public spaces, we have suppressed tra-ditional values in favor of alter-native secular views. As we have sanitized our public schools from prayer, from displays of the Ten Commandments, from any teaching that can be associated with biblical sources, we’ve put government monopoly power behind moral relativism. 2011-2012 Resolutions of the National Education Association, the nation’s largest teachers union, include support of same sex marriage and sex education programs that appreciate “diver-sity of ...sexual orientation and gender identification.” Randi Weingarten, president of the nation’s second larg-est teacher’s union, American Federation of Teachers, lives in an open lesbian relationship. It should come as no surprise when Obama says he sees much of the growth in support for same sex marriage as “gen-erational,” with strong support coming from our youth. Is there a way out? I only see one: Universal school choice. Liberate parents and kids from government and union con-trolled schools. In America, parents who don’t share Arne Duncan’s values shouldn’t have them forced on them. (Star Parker is an author and president of CURE, Center for Urban Renewal and Education.) Free our kids from Duncan Star Parkerparker@urbancure.org F requent flyers are no fans of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The blue-gloved bureau-crats are experts in making trips to the airport as unpleas-ant as possible. As a joint congressional panel revealed Wednesday, the agency’s big-gest failing is its inability to grope the truth. Earlier this year, the House Oversight & Government Reform and Transportation & Infrastructure committees got wind that the TSA has 5,700 pieces of security equipment worth $184 million gathering dust in a Dallas, Texas, ware-house. When investigators were dispatched to learn more, TSA did everything it could to stall them. The congressional auditors finally arrived on Feb. 15 to find a warehouse crew had been busy working from 5 a.m. that morning to shove as much of the embarrassing horde as it could out the back door. The warehouse shenanigans racked up an estimated $23 million in depreciation costs for taxpayers as the pricey equip-ment lost its value while boxed away on a shelf. Fourteen pornographic “advanced imaging technology” machines were locked away in the Dallas facility. America would be a safer place if every single one of those devices were consigned to the dark cor-ner of an abandoned building. We are told that these Xrated x-ray scanners are need-ed because a terrorist failed in an attempt to detonate a bomb in his underpants. To sum up, TSA is buying millions in equipment that it isn’t using, throwing away taxpayer funds. Some of the equipment it does use invades privacy without identifying any real threats. This mess is the result of the agency’s hasty creation in the wake of the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001. After a decade, TSA has proved itself mismanaged and ineffective. It’s time to pull the plug.

COURTESY PHOTO Miss Fort White crowned By SCOTT MAYEROWITZ AP Business Writer NEW YORK The class of 2012 is leaving college with something that many graduates since the start of the Great Recession have lacked: jobs. To the relief of graduat ing seniors and their anxious parents the out look is brighter than it has been in four years. Campus job fairs were packed this spring and more companies are hiring. Students arent just finding good opportu nities, some are weighing multiple offers. In some ways, members of the class of 2012 got lucky. They arrived on cam pus in September 2008, the same month that Wall Street investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed, touch ing off a financial crisis that exacerbated the recession. On campus, they were largely insulated from the collapsing U.S. economy. While older brothers and sisters graduated into a dismal job market, they took shelter in chemistry, philosophy and literature classes. They used their college years to prepare for the brutal realities of the job market that would await them. They began network ing for jobs much earlier, as freshmen in some cases. They pursued summer internships not simply as resume boosters, but as gateways to permanent jobs. And they developed more realistic expectations about landing a job in the ideal place and at the ideal salary. On campuses across the country, spirits are more upbeat this spring, and the employment outlook is especially promising, according to interviews with three dozen seniors and career center direc tors. Its just been such a dramatic change from what we saw in 2008, says Mercy Eyadiel, who over sees career development at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. Back then, openings disappeared overnight and companies were calling recent gradu ates to rescind offers. It was a very bad, ugly situ ation. The job market remains tough, even for those grad uating from the best univer sities. Hiring is not back to its pre-recession level and plenty of seniors are leav ing campuses without jobs. Yet this years graduates are less likely to face the disappointment of moving back in with mom and dad, or being forced to work at a coffee shop to pay off loans. I was nervous that my college degree would go to waste, says Laura Mascari, who arrived on the University of Delawares Newark campus in the fall of 2008. Mascari, who received two job offers, will work in marketing her major for chemicals giant DuPont. Between September 2008 and August 2010, 6.9 million American jobs were eliminated. In the last year and a half, 3.1 million jobs have been created. The strengthening job market has made a big difference to seniors who are job-hunt ing in their final semester.

On Tuesday, May 22, the Phillips Center in Gainesville, FL and Icon Concerts are proud to present “An Evening with Jeff Dunham.” Audience members will have the rare opportunity to get a sneak peak as Jeff and the gang prepare for the taping of their upcoming Monster/Halloween special. Tickets are $47.50 for the show, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Call 352-392-2787 or Visit: www.ticketmaster.com. The Phillips Center is located at 315 Hull Rd, Gainesville, FL. 32611 Dunham’s 100 city tour offers his millions of fans worldwide brand new laughs to his famed troupe of side-kicks that include: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the almost dead son of Achmed, AJ, and Peanut’s own ven-triloquist dummy Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself. The phenomenal international success of Dunham and his cohorts have been driven by his Comedy Central spe-cials, which set global records for both ratings and sales. Last September Dunham’s 4th Comedy Central TV special, “Controlled Chaos,” premiered to a staggering 8.3 million view-ers overall making it the most viewed cable show that night. The global TV event enjoyed a never-before simultaneous same day worldwide debut in a dozen countries. Dunham con-tinued to break ratings records at the end of 2011, when The Bio Channel’s premiere of Jeff Dunham: “Birth of a Dummy” became the network’s number one broadcast of all time. No wonder The New York Times Magazine declared Jeff Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.” Dunham was recently named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years running as well as their Top Worldwide Tour for the second year in a row. In addi-tion, Dunham’s undeniable talent placed him on Forbes magazine’s Celebrity 100 roster of most powerful entertainers for the past two years. Dunham’s autobiography “All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, And Me” debuted in late 2010 and instantly climbed the New York Times best sell-ers list and achieved a Five-Star Reader Rating on Amazon. The book candidly recounts Dunham’s amazing rise to inter-national fame beginning with his first public performances for a mere $5 a show as a fourth-grader in his Dallas, TX hometown, followed by years of intensive touring on the comedy club circuit from his college years into adulthood to becom-ing an international comedy phenomenon. The amazing rise of Jeff Dunham to becoming the inter-national king of contemporary comedy continues apace, with 2012 seeing Jeff continuing to pack arena-sized venues on his Controlled Chaos live show. He made his fourth trip to Europe this spring, stop-ping in the U.K., Germany, and Belgium, and will return to South Africa and Australia this summer. Dunham scheduled for Phillips Center The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Florida Park Service will host the 60th Annual Florida Folk Festival May 25-27 at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. Opening ceremonies will begin at 6 p.m. May 25, on the banks of the Suwannee River. Headlining this year’s festivities will be Florida’s own superstars John Anderson and Billy Dean, a Florida favorite Arlo Guthrie, and hundreds more folk music legends from throughout the Sunshine State. The story of John Anderson and his platinum-plus album, Seminole Wind, is the story of the country music “comeback” of the decade. It’s the true-to-life, yet larger-than-life, saga of one of the most dramatic career turnarounds of the 1990’s. A native of Quincy, Billy Dean moved to Nashville in 1983, where he recorded his first top five country music hit Only Here For A Little While. Dean’s unique repertoire has earned numerous awards and appearances on numerous television shows as well as made-for TV movies. In 2001, Dean began his own pub-lishing company, Billy Dean Music Group. Advance tickets for the Florida Folk Festival are $20 per day or $40 for the entire weekend for adults. Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $25 per day or $50 for the entire weekend. Children under six years are admitted free of charge. Ticket prices for children between the ages of six and 16 for the entire weekend are $4 in advance or $5 at the gate. Call (877) 635-3655 for more information.

By TERESA M. WALKERAssociated PressMEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Los Angeles Clippers refused to let a third chance to knock the Memphis Grizzlies out of the playoffs slip away. Kenyon Martin scored seven of his 11 points in the fourth quar-ter, and the Clippers advanced to the Western Conference semifinals with an 82-72 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 7 on Sunday. “That’s why it’s seven games,” Martin said. “If you don’t do it before, you get another chance. So they did what they had to do, they came and stole home court back on our floor. ... We had a chance to close it out. We knew we let it go, an opportunity get away.” The Clippers blew an eightpoint lead in the fourth quarter Friday night. So Martin huddled the Clippers together at the start of the fourth quarter Sunday, and the veteran led the bench in outscoring the Grizzlies 25-16. Chris Paul had the only bucket by a starter in the final 12 minutes, and the Clippers’ bench outscored the Memphis reserves 41-11 overall. “Our bench was our MVP,” Clippers guard Randy Foye said. “They realized what they had to do. We had a lot of guys hurt, so we just continued to grind.” Now, the Clippers have their third postseason series win in 41 years and their second since relocating to Los Angeles. They last beat Denver By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI — Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat were relieved by the diagnosis. It’s the prognosis — or lack of one — that’s a source of worry now. And suddenly, the Indiana Pacers may be even more of a threat. Bosh strained a lower abdominal muscle in Game 1 of the teams’ Eastern Conference semifinal series, that original diagnosis con-firmed Monday after an MRI exam. The team said Bosh is out “indefinitely,” though coach Erik Spoelstra and others say the injury could have been worse. Either way, Bosh is out for Game 2 today, and sounds like he probably won’t play again in this series. “This season has to be extended for me to play again,” Bosh said. “So that’s what’s on my mind.” Bosh was hurt late in the first half as he drove for a dunk and got fouled by Indiana’s Roy Hibbert. The foul almost certainly played no role in the injury, as Bosh fell forward to his hands and knees after land-ing and stayed down for a few seconds. He got up and made his free throw, but dropped to the court again on the ensuing possession, leaving the game for evalu-ation. Without Bosh, Miami rallied behind LeBron James By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressPONTE VEDRA BEACH — Matt Kuchar looked beyond the edge of the 16th green at a scene packed with enough stress it could wipe away even his smile. Across the water was an island green that was awaiting him Sunday in The Players Championship. The guy dressed all in orange and pumping his first was Rickie Fowler after making a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th to cut Kuchar’s lead to two shots. Kuchar stepped over his 15-footer and answered with a birdie just as big. “Yeah, absolutely I saw the putt,” Kuchar said. “Watched the thing disap-pear and he gave a big fist pump. I knew it got him to within two shots and he could birdie 18 to bring it within one. That could have changed the whole sce-nario of how I would have approached and played 18. So I was really excited to drop that birdie on 16. That was big.” Everything was big for Kuchar on the TPC Sawgrass — most of all, that smile. After a three-putt bogey he could afford on the 17th, and a tap-in par on the final hole with his family watch-ing, Kuchar closed with a 2-under 70 for a two-shot victory, his fourth career win and by far the biggest in so many ways. It was his first win in 38 starts on the PGA Tour, dating to The Barclays in 2010. He won $1.71 million, the richest prize in golf, and moved to No. 3 in the Ryder Cup standings and a career-high No. 5 in the world Lake City Reporter SPORTS Tuesday, May 15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754-0421tkirby@lakecityreporter.com BRIEFS PLAYERS continued on 3B Stays steady in stretch run for fourth tour win.

Turner finished with 10 points, including his layup that put the Sixers up 76-75. He added two free throws with 12 seconds to go. Jrue Holiday scored 18 points and Andre Iguodala added 13 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Sixers, who blew a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter as the Celtics won Game 1. Kevin Garnett had 15 points and 12 rebounds and Ray Allen scored 17 points for the Celtics. Philadelphia won its first playoff game in Boston since 1982 despite com-mitting a playoff-high 19 turnovers and getting out-rebounded 47-36. Spencer Hawes finished with eight points and 10 rebounds and Lavoy Allen scored 10 points for the Sixers. Brandon Bass had 12 points for the Celtics, who couldn’t quite repeat their comeback in the series opener. It was starting to look familiar for Philadelphia on Monday, but the Sixers were able to hold off the Celtics down the stretch.

Back row (from left) are coach VC Coppock, Karry Rossin, Shaquille Williams, Akeem Williams, Tre Maeweather, Rob ert Dace, Kevin Lauder and coach Chris Carodine.Lake City Tigers prepare for Sunshine State GamesSpecial to the ReporterThe Lake City Tigers AAU 16-under basketball team is gearing up for the Sunshine State Games this weekend in Alachua County. Lake City has played in tournaments in Jacksonville the last two weeks. The Tigers were runners-up in the Jacksonville Magic AAU Tournament on May 5-6. Lake City opened play that Saturday with a 69-47 win over the Georgia Thunder. In the evening game, Lake City lost to the Jacksonville Trojans, 60-56. “The morning game we played with a lot of inten-sity, going after every loose ball and executing our plays on offense and forc-ing turnovers on defense,” coach VC Coppock said. “The evening game we just couldn’t get our shots to fall, especially 3-pointers and from the free throw line. Our defense kept us close in the game.” Lake City faced the Jacksonville Nets in the first game on Sunday. The Tigers took control of the game in the second half and posted a 64-45 victory. Tae Foster went on a personal 9-0 scoring run to widen the gap for Lake City to 10 points. Karry Rossin controlled the boards with 15 rebounds, seven on the offensive end. Foster finished with 24 points, and Rossin scored 13. Tre Simmons also hit double figures with 12 points. Marquis Harrell added six points, with four from Kevin Jonas, three from Roger Cray and two from Robert Dace. The Tigers again faced the Trojans in the champi-onship game and came up short, 60-54. Foster led all scorers with 28 points. Other scorers were Cray, 9, Simmons, 6, Tre Maeweather, 4, Rossin, 4, Shaquille Williams, 2, and Jonas, 1. “I think this tournament was a good confidence boaster for the kids, even though we finished in sec-ond place,” Coppock said. “The players are really coming together as a team, and are playing good orga-nized basketball. We are still young and have some maturity issues to work out, but maturity comes along with time and growing up. Overall the kids work hard in practice and are very competitive in every tour-nament that we’ve played in. I would like to thank coaches Chris Carodine and Justin Rayford, along with the parents, for all their help and support.” Triple crown numbers for HamiltonAssociated PressARLINGTON, Texas — The numbers for Josh Hamilton are just mind-boggling. After the Texas Rangers slugger had maybe the best week ever in baseball, there will be talk about the single-season home run record. Maybe the Triple Crown, something as rare as his four-homer game. Hamilton led the majors with a .402 batting average, 18 home runs and 44 RBIs entering Monday’s games. Hamilton put together an incredible seven-game span when he was 14 of 30 (.467) with two doubles, nine homers and 18 RBIs. His week was capped by an RBI-single in the sev-enth inning Sunday in a 13-6 win over the Angels. “Honestly, I don’t even think about it at all until I see somebody and they remind me of it, or I talk to (media) about it,” Hamilton said of his run.


By ROB HARRISAssociated PressLONDON — It took goal difference to determine the destination of the Premier League trophy, but ending a 44-year championship drought has cemented Manchester City’s status as English soccer’s emerging force. After enduring relegations and financial chaos while United won 12 of the last 19 English titles, the “noisy neighbors” derided by Alex Ferguson finally have something to shout about. And the 70-year-old Manchester United man-ager will have to get used to it as he puts a brave face on being denied the title for the first time by City. Ferguson insists he can rise to the task of restor-ing United’s long-standing supremacy in English soc-cer and wrest the trophy from a team owned by Abu Dhabi interests. Sergio Aguero’s titlewinning goal in stoppage time Sunday against Queens Park Rangers sent ripples around the world, from the Etihad Stadium to the Gulf oil wells that have funded the unprecedented $1 bil-lion rejuvenation of City the last three years. “It was absolutely incredible,” striker Carlos Tevez said. “This club have got the players that can win lots of trophies, this is a real big step towards that.” A year after the FA Cup ended a 35-year wait for any sort of major trophy, City can now start focusing on becoming a power beyond British shores. “I hope City will become a great club in the world,” midfielder Yaya Toure said. But they have a long way to go to catch United, which missed out on a 20th English title on Sunday as City collected its third. “The history of our club stands us aside,” Ferguson said. “We don’t need to worry about that. I think we have a rich history, better than anyone and it’ll take them a century to get to our level of history.” Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, MAY 15, 2012 3B TUESDAY EVENING MAY 15, 2012 Comcast Dish DirecTV 6 PM6:307 PM7:308 PM8:309 PM9:3010 PM10:3011 PM11:30 3-ABC 3 -TV20 NewsABC World NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Cougar Town (N) Cougar Town (N) Dancing With the Stars (N) (Live) (:01) Private Practice News at 11(:35) Nightline (N) 4-IND 4 4 4Chann 4 NewsChann 4 NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Love-RaymondKing of QueensBig Bang TheoryBig Bang TheoryThe 10 O’Clock News (N) Chann 4 News(:35) The Insider 5-PBS 5 -World NewsNightly BusinessPBS NewsHour (N) Clinton: American Experience The presidency of Bill Clinton.

FSU weighs Big 12By RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressThe president of Florida State University says mov-ing the athletic program from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big 12 has several drawbacks to be considered. FSU president Eric Barron sent an email to those who have asked him about the possibility of the Seminoles switching con-ferences. The email was obtained by The Associated Press and several other news organizations. He writes that negotiations between the school and the conference are not taking place. While he lays out both possible pros and cons for a move, he makes a strong case for staying in the ACC, where the Seminoles have competed since 1992. For about the last two weeks there have been several more reports about Florida State leaving the ACC. Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman recently told the Orlando Sentinel the school was committed to the ACC. But Florida State board of trustees chairman Andy Haggard told Warchant. com that the board “would be in favor of seeing what the Big 12 might have to offer.” The ACC currently has 12 members and will be adding Pittsburgh and Syracuse as soon as 2013. The Big 12 has 10 mem-bers after it replaced Texas A&M and Missouri, which are headed to the SEC next season, with West Virginia and TCU. “I want to assure you that any decision made about FSU athletics will be reasoned and thought-ful and based on athletics, finances and academics,” Barron wrote. “Allow me to provide you with some of the issues we are facing:” Barron outlined four points made by those who support a move: Q The ACC is more of a basketball conference than a football league. Q The ACC is too North Carolina centric and the conference’s TV contract gives the stronger basket-ball schools an advantage. Q The Big 12’s powerful football schools are a better match for Florida State. Q The Big 12’s impending new TV contract might make Florida State $2.9 million more per year than the ACC’s new deal and Florida State needs the money. Barron wrote the Big 12 is at least as Texas cen-tered as the ACC is North Carolina centered. ranking. His parents moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, so he stayed with them all week and delivered the perfect gift on Mother’s Day to the woman who taught him to have fun while playing golf. Even at scary Sawgrass, that was never a problem. Not so for Kevin Na.Already struggling with a pre-shot routine of prac-tice swings, waggles and a few intentional whiffs so he could start over, Na heard it from the fans who heck-led him with chants of “Pull the trigger!” and “Hit it!” He lost the lead for good with four bogeys in a five-hole stretch to finish the front nine, and when he hit his tee shot in the water on the par-3 13th, fans serenaded him with, “Na-na-na-na ... good-bye.” He closed with a 76, keeping a peculiar record intact — since The Players moved from March to May in 2007, the 54-hole leader has not shot better than 74 in the final round, with an average score of 76.3. Fowler missed an 8-foot birdie putt on the last hole — the difference of $399,000 — and shot 70 to settle for a four-way tie for second. He was joined by Ben Curtis, who holed a 10-foot birdie on the last hole for a 68; Zach Johnson, who shot 68; and Martin Laird, who made bogey on the 18th for a 67. and Dwyane Wade, who outscored the Pacers 42-38 in the second half them-selves and fueled a series-opening 95-86 win. “Seeing him yesterday, seeing the pain he was in, you feared the worst,” Wade said as practice wrapped up Monday. “But seeing him downstairs in the training room with a smile on his face — it wasn’t a big smile, it was a little one — but just to see him in there, it was good. “You never know with these kind of things how long it takes.” It’ll be an adjustment for Miami, which will likely start either Ronny Turiaf or Joel Anthony at center and keep Udonis Haslem in the opening lineup at power forward — and that trio earned a tip of the cap from Indiana coach Frank Vogel on Monday when he called them “three of the best dirty-work guys in the busi-ness.” James will see some time at power forward as well, which isn’t uncommon for Miami anyway. The Pacers will also be doing some adjusting as well, after spending the buildup to this series pre-paring for James, Wade and Bosh. “It changes their team, but we’ve got to understand it doesn’t allow you to play 5-on-4,” Vogel said. in 2006. The Clippers also avoided becoming the ninth NBA team to blow a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven series in moving on to play the top-seeded Spurs starting tonight in San Antonio. Paul scored 19 points despite playing with a strained right hip flexor. Nick Young had nine of his 13 off the bench in the fourth as the Clippers fin-ished off the series with their biggest margin of vic-tory. Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol each had 19 for Memphis.


DEAR ABBY: One of my friends, “Max,” cheats at golf. Otherwise he’s witty, interesting and fun to be around. He moves his ball closer to the hole on the green and “improves” his lie when he thinks no one is looking. I have tried to overlook Max’s transgres-sions, but others in our golf group talk and joke behind his back. How should I go about stop-ping the problem without stressing our friendship? -FLORIDA GOLFER DEAR GOLFER: What you have described is con-sidered a terrible breach of golf etiquette. What it shows about Max is a serious lack of ethics. Because you feel close to him, take him aside and tell him privately as a friend that it’s time to knock off the cheating because the others are onto him, and he’s making himself a laughingstock. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been part of a book club for almost 20 years. We began as a group of six teachers who wanted to share our friendship and love of reading. Over the years, members have come and gone, but five of the original group remains. We’re now a group of nine. Our dilemma is that many of the women don’t bother to read the monthly selection but still attend the meetings. Granted, the meetings are very social. Everyone brings food to enjoy while we discuss books and anything else going on in our lives. However, the core group finds it annoying when some members don’t even attempt to read. It happens month after month. We have said on many occasions we expect every-one to read. Our discus-sions are livelier and more interesting when everyone shares her thoughts, but some don’t make the effort or threaten to drop out of the book club. We don’t want anyone to drop out. We are all friends. Are we expecting too much because as teachers we regard it as a “homework assignment” not being completed? What can we do? -PENNSVILLE, N.J., READER DEAR READER: If certain members of your book club are no longer doing the required reading and regard the gatherings as social affairs, why not make some of the meet-ings -say, every other month -devoted solely to discussing the book you are reading, while the rest will be strictly social? ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have a good friend, “Renee,” who is Canadian and a perma-nent resident of the United States. We don’t always agree on things, but one thing really bugs me about her. She’s always saying how “nice” Canadians are and how rude Americans are. On a recent trip we took to Canada, she commented about a cashier who was nice to us by saying, “That cashier wouldn’t have been so nice if we were in America.” When I try to point out evidence to the contrary, Renee shrugs it off and calls it an excep-tion to the rule. How should I politely ask her to knock off bash-ing Americans? -LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT DEAR LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT: Do it by “politely” pointing out to Renee that it is rude to make comments that make others uncomfort-able, and if Canadians are as “nice” as she says they are -and that includes her -she’ll quit putting down Americans because you find it offensive. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Forget about personal problems. Get involved in a project that interests you and you will have less time to worry about the things you can’t change right now. The limitations you’ve been dealing with mustn’t hold back your profes-sional progress. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your expertise will help you get ahead. An encounter with someone from your past will have an impact on the way you do things. A short trip will result in valuable informa-tion as well as an honor-able commitment. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Help a cause or some-one in need. Follow a creative path and you will leave a much better image regarding what you have to offer and are willing to do. A geographical change will help your state of mind. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Spend time with friends. Anything you try to do with colleagues will be futile. An unusual package, letter or piece of information will open your mind to new possibili-ties. A new partnership is favored that offers greater promise and equality. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Step up and take your status and position seriously. Don’t go for the glory when security should be your main focus. Comparing what you have to what someone else has will only lead to frustration and negativity. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take control and fol-low your desired path. Your communication skills and expertise will easily draw the attention of some-one as gifted as you to share in a venture that can make a difference to your personal finances. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put more time and effort into home, family and keeping the peace. Do something that will please everyone and keep you out of trouble. You can make personal alterations, but don’t go over budget. Consider reuniting with someone from your past. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Follow through with your ideas. An opportu-nity to get involved in a business partnership or something that will help advance your career is present. Networking should be treated as a social event. Make your home more conducive to creativity. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s how you present what you do that will count. Work from home if at all possible and you will achieve the results you are looking for. Don’t let emotional matters get you down when you should embrace a romantic opportunity. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Communication will be required if you want to get to the bottom of a problem that is affect-ing your home life. You can cover a lot of ground if you are open about the way you feel. Money mat-ters can be successfully managed. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Be careful what you say or how much you promise someone. It’s important not to exagger-ate or undersell what you are capable of doing or to what degree you want to be involved. Honesty will make the best impression. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your restlessness must not lead to a fool-ish personal decision. A job opportunity can be expected if you go for an interview or send out your resume. Go the extra mile and perfect your skills to better suit the position you want. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
