JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Lesley Gamble (left) and John Moran paddle through the Santa Fe River Tuesday as they document the levels of cyanobacteria and filamen tous algae polluting about a two-mile stretch of the river. Combined, they encroach on the native vegetation and creates oxygen depletion. This is the most disgusting goop in the state of Florida, said Moran, who is working for Earthjustice, a national environmental law organiza tion. This is by far the worst water I have ever seen. It breaks my heart to see it this way. This is an unmitigated disaster that is happening in front of our eyes.

Vol. 138, No. 85 By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com A local environmental group has growing concerns about water quality issues in the Santa Fe River now that drought con ditions are laying clutches on area waterways. There are brown and green clumps of lyngbya algae, with a distinct odor, but concern is centered around the pea soup film that has the water discolored. Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, Our Santa Fe River president, said residents in the South Columbia County area are concerned with the health of aquatic life, animal life, human life and river life now that cya nobacteria, blue-green algae, could make portions of the river hazardous to humans and animals. She calls the area, its current condition a cess pool. Malwitz-Jipson said officials from the Florida Department of Health and the Alachua County Health Department have been notified about the potential problem. She said representa tives from each of the agencies were collecting water samples to identify which type of cyano bacteria has invaded the river. Test samples were expected to be returned later this week. Residents first became aware of the problem Sunday. Two weeks ago I was on the river and there were signs of filamentous algae, but not the sign of bacteria, she said. The stretch of the Santa Fe River which is garnering the concern of residents and state health care officials is an area of stagnant water near the Santa Fe River Estates subdivi sion. Malwitz-Jipson said the water has filamentous algae, duckweed and cyanobacteria. She estimates that the cyano bacteria is adversely impacting up to two miles of the river. Its from the U.S. 27 bridge boat ramp and park all the way to just before Poe Springs Park, she said. Were only seeing that it looks really bad. However today (Tuesday) weve seen an impaired turtle that might actually be having some problems because of this situation in this cesspool. Seeing that sick turtle leads me to believe that we might have other problems already going underneath the surface. There is also a growing con cern about low oxygen levels on the river because these are the types of algae that take up Memorial Day Mess Local group worries about Santa Fe cesspool JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Swirls of cyanobacteria flow around filamentous algae, which has attached itself to duckweed in the Santa Fe River. Duckweed is used as a food source for the rivers fish and wildlife. The population of the harmful bacteria and algae have boomed mainly because of low flow or stagnant water, heat, drought or low water tables, over pumping, ALGAE continued on 3A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Ricardo Cedillo, 23, a server at the Gondolier Italian Restaurant and Pizza, delivers a slice of strawberry cheesecake to Kasie Plemons, 18, Jay Holsombach and Kelly Holsombach, 18, Tuesday.

By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com The alleged gunman in the April 27 robbery and shooting death of a Lake City store owner has a long criminal history in Florida, according to information from the state Department of Corrections. Larry Ernest Grandison, 42, who remains at large, is wanted for his role in death of Rajni Patel, 55, owner of A&M Discount Beverage. Based on a search of the Florida Department of Corrections website, the Lake City Reporter reported Tuesday that Grandison did not have a criminal his tory in the state. However, the web site was down for most of Monday and did not imme diately provide accurate informa tion when ser vice was restored Monday evening. According to a DOC spokeswom an, the website is the only means of accessing inmates criminal histories in Florida. According to DOC, Grandison served more than 10 years in prison between 1986 -1999 for burglary of an unoccupied struc ture, grand theft motor vehicle, grand theft, robbery without a deadly weapon, forgery and uttering a forgery. He had a Jacksonville address upon his release from the Lake City Work Release Center in 1999. Grandisons alleged accomplice in the crime, James Leonard Johnson, 23, of Lake City, was arrested Saturday in Jacksonville by Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents. He was transferred to the Columbia County Detention Facility on Monday. A woman identifying herself as Johnsons aunt, in an e-mail to the Lake City Reporter Tuesday, said Johnson had Alleged gunman has long criminal history Served 10 years on robbery, theft, burglary charges. Unemployment rate down, but so is workforce By HANNAH O. BROWN and LAURA HAMPSON The jobless rate in Columbia County has fallen, but so has the number of people here seeking work. An April report from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity showed a .4 percent decrease from last month in the number of unemployed individuals in Columbia County. However, the number of people in the county workforce decreased from 31,248 to 30,764 dur ing the same period. A smaller workforce can be explained by a large number of people permanently leaving jobs to retire, not just discouraged job seek ers, said Darlene Strimple, project director for Florida Crown Workforce Board, which serves Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and Union counties.

But do not use your freedom to indulge the esh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13 NIV NEW YORK — Pearl Jam, Skrillex and D’Angelo are among the perform-ers scheduled to take the stage at the Made In America music festi-val Jay-Z is curating in Philadelphia in September. Jay-Z will also perform, as will Janelle Monae, Passion Pit, Odd Future, Santigold, Afrojack, Calvin Harris and Rick Ross and his Maybach Music group. The festival will feature 28 acts over Labor Day weekend. Tickets for the two-day festival are to go on sale Wednesday. Jay-Z announced plans for the event last week atop the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Proceeds will benefit the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. More performers will be announced later.Networks worried about ad zapper NEW YORK — The maker of a new DVR that lets consumers zap away commercials at the touch of a button is suggest-ing that broadcast TV networks are being short-sighted in opposing the technology. The Dish Network has offered its new Auto Hop feature on new digital video recorders since March. Its executives said Tuesday that they believe the people who buy the machine are watching more network TV than before. But Dish officials admit they don’t yet have hard data to back up that con-tention. Network officials say the device threatens the economic structure of the TV business, which largely relies on ad sales to make money. Nearly half of American homes with televisions now have DVRs. There hasn’t been any measur-able impact on the rates advertisers have been pay-ing for commercials, but there’s concern that could change if the commercials are eliminated entirely.Gay wedding for Marvel Comics PHILADELPHIA — Wedding bells will ring this summer for Marvel Comics’ first openly gay hero, super speedster Northstar, and his long-time boyfriend. The New York-based publisher said Tuesday that Canadian character Jean-Paul Beaubier will marry his beau, Kyle Jinadu, in the pages of “Astonishing X-Men” No. 51. That’s due out June 20. Northstar revealed he was gay in the pages of “Alpha Flight” No. 106 in 1992, one of Marvel Entertainment’s first char-acters to do so. Ten years later, in 2002, gay characters Apollo and the Midnighter were mar-ried in the pages of “The Authority” published by DC’s Wildstorm imprint. Since then, numerous comic book heroes and villains have been written as gay, lesbian or transgen-der — from DC Comics’ Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, to Hulkling and Wiccan in the pages of “Young Avengers.” Comics, as a medium, have embraced gay, les-bian and transgender char-acters, including the intro-duction of Kevin Keller by Archie Comics. Comic strips have done likewise. This month, cartoonist Tom Batiuk is writing about a gay couple try-ing to attend their high school prom in “Funky Winkerbean,” a move that has divided the fictional community.Usher says ex-wife spat at friend ATLANTA — R&B singer Usher Raymond is locked in a legal battle with his ex-wife arising from a custody fight over their two sons. The 33-year-old testified in court on Tuesday that Tameka Foster Raymond spit at and tried to fight his girlfriend during one visit. He alleged that his ex-wife hit him during the dispute, but that he didn’t press charges because “I didn’t want the boys to know that their father put their mother in jail.” Tameka Raymond’s attorney claims that Usher provoked her client and that his account is exaggerated. Pearl Jam to perform at Philly fest Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam performs during the Bridge School Benefit concert in Mountain View, Calif. Pearl Jam, Skrillex, D’Angelo and more performers will take the sta ge at the Jay-Z-curated “Budweiser Made in America” music fes tival in Philadelphia this September. The festival will featu re 28 acts at Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on Sept 1. and Sept. 2, which is Labor Day weekend.ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI — The teachers union in Miami-Dade County is proposing an innovative way to raise extra money for education. At a news conference Tuesday, the union announced plans to call for a tax amnesty program that would encourage resi-dents illegally claiming a homestead exemption to come clean. Figures provided by a former Miami-Dade police major estimate there is approximately $280 million in uncollected taxes, about 40 percent of which would go toward education. Washington state did a similar amnesty aimed at business scofflaws last year and received $320.7 million. The teachers union says the revenue is needed to provide teachers with com-petitive salaries without raising taxes. The amnesty would include an advertis-ing campaign linking tax evasion with the effect on school children, and would be followed up with higher penalties.PSC approves Tropicana deal TALLAHASSEE — State regulators have approved a deal for Tropicana Manufacturing Co. to gen-erate renewable energy. The Public Service Commission gave its approval Tuesday for inter-connecting a 1.6 mega-watt generating facility at Tropicana’s Fort Pierce plant with Florida Power & Light Co. It will burn renewable landfill gas to power Tropicana’s citrus process-ing plant. The agreement will require Tropicana rather than FPL to pay the $95,000 cost of modifying the utility’s interconnection facilities to handle the new generating facility. It complies with the commission’s net metering rule designed to encour-age homeowners and busi-nesses to generate their own renewable energy while remaining intercon-nected with an electric utility. That allows the utility to supply additional power if needed or buy excess renewable energy gener-ated by homeowners or businesses.SEC: 2 misled investors MIAMI — The Securities and Exchange Commission is accus-ing two Florida men of misleading investors in a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme run by disbarred attorney Scott Rothstein. The SEC complaint filed Tuesday in Miami federal court says George Levin and Frank Preve raised some $157 million from 173 investors through a company known as Banyon. The complaint says the two invested in Rothstein’s fake legal settlements while assuring the inves-tors that their money was safe and the investments were successful. The SEC contends the men lured investors with documents containing misrepresenta-tions and omissions. The SEC seeks financial penalties, return of ill-got-ten gains and an order stopping the pair from vio-lating securities laws. Lawyers for Levin and Preve didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to emails seeking comment. Rothstein is serving 50 years in prison. Gov. pushed to remove voters TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s quest to identify and remove non-U.S. citi-zens from the voter rolls was started at the direct urging of Gov. Rick Scott, the state’s former top elec-tions official said. Ex-Secretary of State Kurt Browning, who resigned this year, told The Associated Press that Scott asked him whether or not non-U.S. citizens were registered and if those people were voting. Browning explained to the governor during a face-to-face meeting last year that people who register and falsely claim they are citi-zens can be charged with a crime. “He says to me — well, people lie,” Browning recalled this week. “Yes, people do. But we have always had to err on the side of the voter.” Browning said the conversation prompted state election officials to begin working to identify non-U.S. citizens. The state’s initial list — compiled by comparing driver’s licens-es with voter registration data — showed that as many as 182,000 registered voters were eligible to be in the country but ineli-gible to vote. But Browning said he decided against telling local election supervi-sors right away because he wanted to make sure the information was accu-rate in order to avoid a “firestorm of press” and criticism. Florida then spent months trying to get access to a federal data-base that tracks non-U.S. citizens in the country, but the U.S. Department of Homeland Security would not allow it.Teachers union wants tax amnesty

Snails tend to be algae scrubbers and eat the algae. There are several factors that cause these types of algae blooms, MalwitzJipson said. In this particular area, drought, and over pumping as a result of drought, is impacting this particular watershed. She also said heat and no rain are also negatively impacting the affected area because there is no running water to flush the system. She said human and animal waste, as a result of sewers and sep tics not running efficiently, problems with the High Springs sprayfield and possibly chemicals such as fertilizers, phosphorus, nitrates and pesticides that increase the nutrient loads, is what caused the issue. People are not going to be able to use this area during the Memorial Day holiday, she said. Im not the health department, but Im pretty sure the health department is going to close this down for the holiday. However, from Poe Springs down to the Suwannee River, everyone should be able to use the river without a whole lot of worry about their health. This is unique. This is a cesspool right now.

A check of the Florida and Ohio Department of Corrections websites did not indicate Johnson had served time in either state. Johnson was arrested for disorderly intoxication in Columbia County on April 21, six days before the fatal robbery. Law enforcement authorities say Johnson took money from behind the counter of the local convenience store during the rob bery. Grandison allegedly shot the owner to death and fired at the owners wife, who was unharmed. MURDER Continued From 1A trict will follow the new Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. The changes also require students wear seat belts in buses purchased after 2000. The policy previously exempted students from wearing seat belts in buses. Board members also approved Mandese White Construction of Jacksonville as the contractor for the Eastside Elementary Schools kitchen renovation. The $1.24 million project is the last of the districts kitchen renovations which have spanned the last 15 years, said Mike Null, director of purchasing.

Quite a chorus LAURA HAMPSON/Lake City Reporter CAPE CANAVERAL Opening a new, entrepreneurial era in spaceflight, a ship built by a billionaire businessman sped toward the International Space Station with a load of groceries and other supplies Tuesday after a spectacular middle-of-the-night blastoff. The launch of the Falcon 9 rocket and its unmanned Dragon capsule marked the first time a commercial spacecraft has been sent to the orbiting outpost. Tracing a fiery arc across the night sky, the rocket lifted off just before 4 a.m. and smoothly boosted the capsule into orbit. The capsule is expected to rendezvous with the space station within days, delivering a halfton of provisions for its six crew members. It is considered just a test flight in fact, the capsule was packed with only nones sential items, in case something went disas trously wrong but if all goes well with this mission and others like it, commercial spaceships could be carrying astronauts to and from the space station in three to five years. Falcon flew perfectly!! billionaire entre preneur Elon Musk, founder of the SpaceX company, said via Twitter. Feels like a giant weight just came off my back. Musk later told reporters: For us, its like winning the Super Bowl. Up to now, flights to the space station were something only major governments had done. The White House offered congratula tions. Every launch into space is a thrilling event, but this one is especially exciting, said John Holdren, President Barack Obamas chief science adviser. This expanded role for the private sector will free up more of NASAs resources to do what NASA does best tackle the most demanding techno logical challenges in space, including those of human spaceflight beyond low-Earth orbit. NASA is looking to the private sector to take over flights to the space station now that the space shuttle has been retired. Several U.S. companies are vying for the opportunity. The significance of this day cannot be overstated, said a beaming NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. Its a great day for America. Its actually a great day for the world because there are people who thought that we had gone away, and today says, No, were not going away at all.

P resident Obama is hosting two high-level international meetings in a week. He is offering his solutions to global economic and security issues. It’s doubt-ful the world is listening. Mr. Obama’s international stature has decreased mark-edly since the heady days when he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize after only 11 days in office. He has done little to earn the “down pay-ment” prize, and now foreign leaders expect little from him. In that respect, he lives down to expectations. Mr. Obama’s address at the opening of the NATO conference is a case in point. He discussed his plan to “responsibly” end the war in Afghanistan, which is itself a misnomer; the war will not end, just NATO’s involvement. He made the same points he’s been making for months, stressing that the withdrawal of U.S. forces doesn’t mean abandoning Afghanistan, even though most observers believe that’s exactly what is happen-ing. “As Afghans stand up,” Mr. Obama said, “they will not stand alone.” The phrase comes across as just too pat. The president doesn’t believe it, the Afghans don’t believe it, and the speechwriter who put the line in the teleprompter prob-ably didn’t believe it either. NATO leaders from Eastern Europe no doubt remember the incident in March when an open mic caught a private moment the U.S. president had with Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev. “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space,” he said. “This is my last election. After my elec-tion I have more flexibility.” The comments suggested that whatever Mr. Obama might say publicly about missile defense or other issues, privately he was in agreement with Russia. Once the political season was over once he could no longer be held accountable he would take actions that would be more to Moscow’s liking. For his part, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin made his implicit assessment of Mr. Obama’s impotence by skip-ping last weekend’s G-8 eco-nomic event, electing instead to meet with Mr. Obama “on the margins” of the upcoming G-20 summit. Mr. Obama’s pri-mary message at the G-8 that European leaders should ease back on austerity measures and open the spigots of govern-ment spending was welcomed by socialists like France’s newly elected President Francois Hollande. But to fiscal conservatives abroad, this was unwelcome advice to increase their debt to Obama-style levels, which would only worsen their long-term economic malaise. Mr. Obama’s proposed solution is what caused their economic meltdown in the first place. America’s image is taking a beating in other ways. NATO leaders in Chicago observed a show of force that ill befits the Land of the Free. Police including reinforcements from Philadelphia were out in force in full riot gear. Even given the nature of the meeting and the ongoing threats from terrorism, this was overkill, with no concern taken for how it would look to an overseas audience. The hyper-militarized security mea-sures sent a message that the United States is either on the verge of a meltdown, becoming a police-state, or both. ONE OPINION I f a date can be affixed to when the war in Afghanistan began to end, Monday is as good as any. That’s when NATO leaders meeting in Chicago announced an “irresistible transi-tion” to having all the alliance’s combat troops out by the end of 2014. At least that’s the agreed-upon plan. Whether it is an orderly, cal-ibrated handover to Afghan secu-rity forces, or whether the NATO presence just sort of fizzles out remains to be seen. Giving credence to the fizzle option was France, whose newly elected president, Francois Hollande, announced that the French would be pulling out by the end of this year, two years early. The French have only 3,300 troops there, but given the nation’s importance to the alli-ance, it gives political cover to other countries that want to get out earlier. Sometime next year, according to President Barack Obama, “The Afghan war as we know it is over.” Maybe not so over. The U.S. is committed to staying on in an advisory and training role until 2024. And Obama’s national secu-rity adviser on Afghanistan, retired Gen. Douglas Lute, said, “After this milestone in 2013 (when the han-dover is to be complete), there will still be combat capability, combat authority and an expectation there will be combat.” But it was clear from the Chicago summit that it will be mostly us staying on, with maybe a handful of others, and mostly our money as efforts have been going slowly to have others chip in on the $4.1 billion annual cost of a continued presence. (Afghanistan’s president, Hamid Karzai, apparently without sarcasm or tongue in cheek, thanked the American taxpayer for supporting the 11-year war. If he really wants to thank us, he can create a government honest and effective enough to prevent a resurgence of the Taliban and the warlords after the West departs.) If there was a sour note at the summit, it was invited guest Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari arriving without a plan to reopen NATO’s supply lines, which have been closed since a misdirected U.S. airstrike killed 24 Pakistani soldiers in November. Zardari apparently wants a formal U.S. apology beyond the regrets and condolences already offered, and he wants a major increase in the fees NATO pays to haul supplies across Pakistan. Zardari must surely see that, as the NATO presence winds down, so does his influence. After next year, it’s too late to say, “Come back. All is forgiven.” LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Obama a savior?

Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.comIn the Age of Obama, Uncle Sam is watching. High-tech surveillance aircraft once limited to the use of the world’s largest military organizations are now finding their way to local law-enforcement agencies. With the ability to put an eye in the sky over every square inch of U.S. soil, these machines have created an unprecedented opportunity to violate Americans’ right to privacy. It’s time to roll back this trend. In February, lawmakers on Capitol Hill passed the FAA Reauthorization Act, which instructs the Federal Aviation Administration to draw up rules for the testing and licens-ing of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) by 2015. Accordingly, the agency has projected the use of aircraft for surveillance will take off, put-ting as many as 30,000 in the skies above the states by 2020. Privacy defenders are harshly critical of creeping Big Brother. Last week, former Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, the senior judicial analyst for Fox News whose column appears in The Washington Times, went so far as asserting that the first person to shoot down a government drone snooping in his backyard would be a “hero.” Small backpack models equipped with a miniature digi-tal camera and weighing just a few pounds have given troops a tactical advantage. Better known are the full-sized varieties like General Atomics’ Reaper that can climb to 50,000 feet and fire Hellfire missiles at terrorists. Judge Napolitano has raised the specter of armed drones over American soil taking out purported enemies of the state, a Pandora’s Box that opened when President Obama used drones in the assassination of Americans overseas. The president assumed the roles of judge, jury and executioner when he ordered on his own authority the September kill-ing of American-born al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. Uncle Sam is watching A recent letter to the editor stated that the current President “rescued America” and that “the country was saved by President Obama.” He was portrayed as a savior! There are many that do not see Barack Obama as a savior. In that letter the President was described as “eloquent, intelligent, handsome, polished, a family man, a man of good faith and a man of good charac-ter.” All of these may or may not be true. He was also called hon-est and truthful – that is NOT true. To back that up, consider the following: He said he was against same sex marriage in 2008 – now he is for it. He was against receiving PAC money – but he is accepting PAC money. He bashes millionaires and billionaires but asks for their money at fundraisers in New York and Los Angeles. He is against Wall Street but takes Hedge Fund money He promised to eliminate earmarks but has issued more executive orders (the Presidential version of ear-marks) than the last three presi-dents combined. He said he would uphold the Constitution but has refused to submit a budget to congress for 3 years – violating the Constitution. He said that he would lower health care costs but they are going higher. He has violated the separation of church and state by imposing abortion supporting insurance requirements upon religious organizations. He passed a mandatory health care law and then gave over 100 corporations exemp-tions from the law. He and his attorney general pick and choose which laws, passed by our Congress, will be enforced. He refuses to enforce our immigration laws and sues states that seek to enforce Federal law. He said that he would have the most transparent adminis-tration the country has ever had but he has an attorney general that is on the verge of being in contempt of Congress for refus-ing to release documents on “Fast and Furious.” He said he would “cut the debt by 50 percent” but has increased the national debt by 50 percent (by $5 trillion). He said he would close Guantanamo Bay as his first act as president but it is still operating. He said he would eliminate the capital gains tax on small business but has not. He said that he would eliminate the lobbyist in Congress and he has not. He said that he would remove Wall Street’s influence in the White house but has more Wall Street executives in his adminis-tration than other Presidents. He said that immigration reform was a priority but has done nothing about it. He said he would increase domestic energy production but has limited drilling for oil and gas on government lands and blocked the Keystone Pipeline. He said that he would create jobs but we have had 3 and a half years of over 8 percent unemployment. Some of his promises could have been kept when he had a Democratic controlled House of Representatives and Senate the first 2 years. He cannot blame the Republicans for that failure. The writer also makes a case for race being a factor in oppos-ing the President’s re-election. The writer should keep in mind that the American voting public, predominately white, elected a mixed race president believ-ing in his words and promises. He did not deliver and we do not deserve another 4 years of Socialist platitudes and give-aways. Those that elected him can rightly hold him account-able for his promises but those that oppose the reelection of this president are being labeled as racist and worse. Remember, racism is not just a White thing! Playing the race card divides, no matter who does it; and the more it is played, the greater the division in our society. Playing the race card can be racism when it is not true and just a diversion from the issues. When it is not true, and sometimes it can be, suggesting racial discrimination as a motivation for something destroys credibility and bolsters biases on all sides. People opposing the President’s reelection may be simply proud and concerned patriotic Americans that believe in the Constitution, in Capitalism, in Democracy and in truth and disagree with his poli-cies. They may just feel that the current President is not up to the job, regardless of his racial background. He certainly is not a savior by any standard.Paul WengertLake City, Florida

For details, call Kaleb Watkins at 755-8130.Q From staff reportsIn training By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comLake City has two middle school football programs in the Lake City Falcons and Richardson Wolves, but both teams share a common goal. The Falcons will break in a new coach this year as Richard Keen takes over for Billy Jennings at Lake City Middle School. Joey O’Neal enters his second year as coach of the Wolves. Both coaches share a common goal and that’s pre-paring players for the next level to compete at the high school with coach Brian Allen and the Columbia High Tigers. Keen takes over the Falcons with more than 24 years on the coaching circuit. His background mainly includes the recre-ation circuit, but he’s happy to have the opportunity to develop the middle school program. “The vision is to prepare those kids to play at the high-school level,” Keen said. “The base packages that the high school uses, we’re working on putting that stuff in. We want them playing physical, hard-nosed football.” In his second year, O’Neal said things are much better for the Wolves’ program. “It’s a lot different this year,” O’Neal said. “We’ve met with coach Allen and they’ve given us some stuff that they want us to run. We’ll put in their base pack-age. We’re going to plug it in and do what it takes to get it done.” One aspect that is helping O’Neal is the numbers game. “Usually we only have about 35 kids,” he said. “We started with about 40 and we’ve got all our return-ers. We only lost about eight guys from last year, so we’re very pleased with how things are going lead-ing up to the Orange & Green game on Friday.” The game is set to kick off at 1 p.m. “It’s kind of our reward for the kids,” O’Neal said. “We’re going to let them play and have a little fun.” The Wolves will play their Red & Black game at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. “We’ll split the team in half and look for repetition,” Keen said. “We want to see what we’ll need to work on in the fall. This should spring us into the fall and reward our kids for the days of work they’ve put in.” Keen said the Wolves haven’t changed that much under him from how Jennings was running prac-tices. “Nothing has changed,” he said. “We’re the same style. I’m just trying to pick up where they left off.” Keen did say that he will continue to try to install packages from the Tigers. “We want to put in their base offense which is a lot of man-blocking schemes,” he said. “We want to allow them not to think and just fire off the ball.” He tends to see that in use on Wednesday. “We’ll split the team right down the middle,” Keen said. “We want a competi-tive game.” O’Neal thinks that his team should look competi-tive on Friday as well. “We’re ahead of the curve,” he said. “I knew what to look forward to this year. We want to see what they’ve learned and contin-ue to develop them more.” The format for both games will be comparable. “We’re going to split the defense and offense,” O’Neal said. “When the defense isn’t playing defense, they’ll play offense. We want to get everyone in and give them a game. We have people on offense and defense that can play both sides of the ball, so we are going to do that.” One player that O’Neal is particularly interested in seeing is Ronnie Collins. O’Neal pointed him out as having the best spring so far. “We made the change in the spring moving him from running back to quar-terback,” O’Neal said. “He’s shown that it is something that he can do and he has big shoes to feel, but he’s doing a great job. He’s catching on to coach Allen’s system and he’s learning how to read defenses.” O’Neal will keep the training going during the summer. The Wolves will have two options when it comes to summer conditioning. “We want them to condition with us or at the high school,” O’Neal said. “We encourage them to be there or with us.” Keen hasn’t quite decided as to exactly how the teams will be split for the Red & Black game, but he has a good idea of what he’ll see. “We’ll probably try to split the teams right down the middle as even as we can get,” he said. “We have to reward them for all these days of practice.” Keen expects a competitive game that will have the team ready for the summer. “It should be a competitive game,” Keen said. “Summer conditioning will take place at the high school. We want to have them over there two times a week and for two hours.

Special to the Reporter April racing was a sure sign that hard work and dedication pays off. The JDB & TLB open class machine, owned by Leonora and Mark Geiger of Lake City, recently went through a mechanical and electrical make over that really paid off. Their driver, Gilbert Durrance of Lake City Woodpeckers oldest racer, made his quickest pass in years when he really need ed it and won the open class (Run What You Brung). Woodpecker added best of show, which is selected by staff. The winner was Ron Klys of High Springs with his extremely large Chevy powered truck. This months event will have a new class, spon sored by JDB & TLB. The class will offer tractor tire trucks and mud boggers, and a 200-foot track that is almost impassable. The trucks with the fastest times or longest pulls will receive trophies. The Woodpecker Bog 4th Annual Memorial Day Anniversary is 4-7 p.m. today at Baya Avenue west and U.S. Highway 90 in Lake City.

Scorekeepers needed a tie-breaker to settle a 54-54 deadlock for first place in the Kiwanis Club tourna-ment on Friday. The team of Bucky Nash, Chris Hewitt, Kevin Morton and Max Smith got the scorecard decision over the three-man team of Wiley Hunter, Jody DuPree and Keith Blackie. Skill shot winners were Smith for longest putt, Mike Streicher for longest drive, Jordan Wade for closest to the pin on No. 5, and Blair Voitle for straightest drive. In the MGA two-man tournament, Dennis Crawford and Jim Carr teamed to take the A flight with a net 61. Greg Lyons and Mike Jacobs finished in second place with 63, a stroke ahead of Brent Lyons and Joe Paul. The B flight winners were Tom Wade and Al Alvarado, who shot a net 58 for a four-stroke edge over George Bowlin and David Cannon. Third place went to Dave Mehl and David Pope. A steady round of golf produced +9 points for Mike Gough and first place in the Wednesday blitz. Donald Robert’s birdie on the first hole gave him +6, good for second place, and a skin. Bud Johnson and Mickey Wilcox tied for third at +3. Buddy Slay and Don Combs tied for fifth place with +3. Chad Hunter had two keepers in the skins game. John Dennis, Roger Mitzel and Wilcox had one each. Scott Kishton had an easy win in the Sunday blitz. His +7 topped second-place Mickey Wilcox at +3. Closest to the pin winners were Buddy Slay on No. 5, Steve Patterson on Nos. 7 and 15, and Tony Kent on No. 17. Kishton added to his day’s take with two skins. Slay and Patterson had one skin apiece. The LGA “pick nine” format let the ladies choose which nine holes they counted for scores. After applying half their handi-caps, the three top finishers were only a stroke apart. Nicole Ste-Marie took the win with a net 28, edging second-place Suzi Davis by a half shot and third place Faye Warren by a full shot. Jan Davis and Cathy Steen shared fourth place with 32. The Good Old Boys matches had one blow-out and one close encounter. In match one, the team of Don Christensen, Joe Persons, Bill Wheeler and Eli Witt rolled over the team of Ed Snow, Bobby Simmons, Doyle Worthington and Howard Whitaker, 5-1. In match two, the team of Stan Woolbert, Dave Cannon, Carl Wilson and Dan Stephens beat the team of Monty Montgomery, Tom Elmore, Tony Branch and Bill Rogers, 6-5. Whitaker (39-36-75) and Montgomery (36-39-75) fought to a tie for medal-ist honors. Woolbert (78), Snow (79) and Christensen (79) were close. Nine-hole action had Cannon and Branch tied at 38 on the front side. Junior golf, tennis campsCarl Ste-Marie is offering Junior Golf Camps and Johnny Young is offering Junior Tennis Camps.

Injury prevented Woods from participating in Rory McIlroy’s big win. “Unfortunately, I was in a position where I couldn’t play and it was tough because I missed out on a golf course I know, that I’ve won on and that I love,” Woods said. “Those factors made it difficult to sit back and watch. What Rory did was extraordinary. He played some beautiful golf.” McIlroy dominated Congressional, finishing at 16 under. He is not among the early commitments for the AT&T National, but in addition to Woods, past tournament champions Nick Watney, Justin Rose and K.J. Choi will play in the $6.5 million event. Par on Congressional’s Blue Course will be 71 and at 7,535 yards. Woods has finishes of tied for 16th (1997 U.S. Open), tied for sixth (2008 AT&T National) and the win three years ago. “The difficulty is that it’s a big ballpark,” Woods said. “If you get to where there’s a little moisture in the fair-ways and (tee shots) aren’t running and aren’t chas-ing, this course gets really long. ... It’s a fantastic tee-to-green golf course. You have to drive the ball well and once you get onto the greens, there’s a lot of pitch and movement, usu-ally back to front. “Playing here this year, I would like to see it diffi-cult, there’s no doubt.”Dufner wins Nelson for 2nd victory in 4 weeksIRVING, Texas — Jason Dufner stood on the 18th green, his lips together seemingly trying to sup-press a smile while his playing partner finished the hole to end the Byron Nelson Championship. Dufner had already made a 25-foot birdie putt to win for the second time in four weeks. When J.J. Henry made the final putt Sunday, there was still no big outburst of emotion from the newly married Dufner after win-ning again. And there were no plans for any primal screams or chest bumps in private for the golfer who admittedly doesn’t get overly expressive very often. “Here and there a couple of times a year,” Dufner said. “Usually there is some alcohol involved or Auburn football, but for the most part I’m laid back.” That mentality paid off big at the Nelson, where Dufner was steady throughout. With that long birdie on the final hole, Dufner avoided a playoff. He also was alone with a one-stroke lead after the second and third rounds when gusty winds prevailed on the TPC at Four Seasons course.

DEAR ABBY: From time to time I have read let-ters in your column about Peeping Toms. You might find our experience inter-esting. Many years ago, soon after my husband, Klaus, and I arrived as newlyweds from Germany, we rented a small bungalow in L.A. There were seven of them in two rows behind our landlord’s large home in the front. Between our little house and our next-door neigh-bor’s was a brick patio that extended from our bedroom window to her back door. Not long after we moved in, the woman began looking into our bedroom window on week-end mornings, pressing her nose against the glass. Because we were guests in this country, we didn’t want to say anything, but we knew we needed to stop her. My husband came up with the perfect solution. He placed a large mirror in the window frame. Sure enough, the weekend came and she peered into our window. Seeing her face reflected back, she dashed into her house and never looked again. -LILO IN COSTA MESA DEAR LILO: I like your husband’s style. Your neighbor may not have gotten the thrill she was seeking, but she sure enough got the message. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: There is a segment of the popula-tion that I have not seen you address. It’s the many women whose dreams of marriage and children never came true. Society gives so much attention to women who are pregnant and have children. It is very difficult for us to hear people brag on and on about their chil-dren and pass around their pictures. People need to develop sensitivity for those like me, who prayed 25 years for marriage and children, but who didn’t get this “gift from God.” -ALONE IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR ALONE: Parents bragging about their children and showing off pictures are natural reac-tions to having offspring. It is not meant to punish the childless. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a freshman in college. I would like to transfer to a college that two of my best friends from high school attend, and also change my planned major. We have been friends since seventh grade, and we would like to rent a house over the summer and remain in it during the next school year. My problem is my father. Daddy insists that I shouldn’t live with my high school friends. He says I should concentrate on making new friends and see my old ones less often. He is making it sound like if I don’t do what he wants, that I’ll mess up my entire future. Am I wrong here? Would living with my friends be that horrible? -MIXED UP IN NEW YORK DEAR MIXED UP: Your father may be concerned that you and your friends will be distracted and not apply yourselves fully to your studies if you share a house together. Although many first-year students change their planned majors, changing schools as well as your major and moving in with your friends may appear to your father as a retreat from adult responsibilities. The question you must answer is: Does he have cause to be concerned about your motives or your study habits? DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Think ahead and be prepared to respond quick-ly. Uncertainty caused by undisclosed sources will make you reconsider your direction. A partnership will be more valuable than you expected. A love rela-tionship will develop into something special. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t hang around doing nothing. There is much to see and even more to learn if you are a participant. Participating in events that involve people of different backgrounds will be insightful. Consider making a lifestyle change. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Follow through with your plans. All talk and no action will cause onlookers to doubt your credibility. Utilizing your talents will bring you the backing you want and the recognition you deserve. Love and romance are in the stars. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will be emotional, and you’ll find it difficult to deal with any changes that come your way. Don’t ignore what’s unfolding in front of you. It’s better to be a part of change than to ignore it and get left behind. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Visit new places or make personal changes that will help you stand out. Let your uniqueness lead the way, and you will attract new friends as well as opportunities. You can make an impression with-out going overboard. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Update your looks, attitude and even your direction if you aren’t happy with the way your future looks. You need to open up about your likes and dislikes and discuss your plans with the people you want in your life for-ever. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take care of your needs and stay out of everyone else’s business. Catch up on odd jobs so you are free to start some-thing new. Avoid people who are moody or looking to blame you for whatever goes wrong. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will attract posi-tive attention and propo-sitions if you step into the spotlight and show off your skills. Financial advancement will result if you network with people who work in your industry. Make a cold call and see where it leads. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Money will slip through your fingers easily if you don’t put it some-where safe. Ask for a favor if that’s what’s required to get the job done. Be competitive and show your leadership abilities. Love is on the rise. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Nurture a part-nership and you will avoid being blamed for not doing your part. Do what you can to make your home comfortable and welcome to family and friends. A decision regarding your personal life should be made. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t share too much information. Your actions will prove that you are sincere, but talk without follow-up will lead to complaints and disap-pointments. Love will turn in your favor if you show respect and willingness to share. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t fight if you can’t win. Stick to the people who share your interests and your intent. Choose your direction and stick to it. Rely on experience to help you make a decision now. A partnership must be based on common inter-ests. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
