COMING SUNDAY Local news roundup. 93 68 T-Storm Chance WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterFRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 25-26, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75LAKECITYREPORTER COM WEEKEND EDITION Vol. 138, No. 87 By LAURA HAMPSON firstname.lastname@example.org The segment of Columbia County thirdgraders facing possible retention due to low standardized reading scores increased by 3 percentage points to 13 percent on the tough, new Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, state education officials said Thursday. Reading and math proficiency scores dropped much more dramatically, though, on the FCAT 2.0 this year for third-graders compared to 2011 because of a more rigor ous grading scheme. However, more Columbia County stu dents scored at or above grade level in reading and math than third-graders across the state. Compared to the rest of the state we did well, said Superintendent of Schools Mike Millikin. Thats encouraging in many ways. However, he added, We do have con cerns as to how the new scale will impact school grades, that will be coming as we get to summer. Educators predicted the drop due to higher standards that went into effect this year, but it turned out to have a smaller effect on the potential retention rate. Third-graders who score just a one on a one-to-five scale on the reading exam can be held back for another year unless they successfully complete an alternative skills assessment. That can include consider ation of a portfolio of the students work or passing summer remedial classes. There is no similar promotion requirement for math proficiency. About 105 third-graders in the county are facing potential retention out of 803 students tested, compared to 81 students out of 807 last year. At Melrose Park Elementary 23 per cent of third-graders face possible reten tion; 18 percent at Niblack; 17 percent at Fort White and Five Points; 16 percent at Summers; 10 percent at Pinemount; 8 Columbia 3rd-graders beat state average on FCAT By LAURA HAMPSON email@example.com Refreshing and crystal clear, the cool waters of the Ichetucknee Springs State Park will float thousands of tubers this weekend as the park gets into full swing. The parks North Entrance opens for the season Saturday at 8 a.m. Only 750 tubers are allowed to float the 3 1/2 hours from the North Entrance per day and park officials expect to reach maximum capacity by 8:30 a.m. this weekend. Everybody wants to tube the north end. Its been closed all year, said Patty Hudson, assistant park manager. The Midpoint launch is a 1 1/2 hour float and 2,250 people are allowed down each day. Midpoint will probably reach capacity between 11:30 a.m. and noon, Hudson said. Dampiers Landing, which is a one hour float, does not have a limit. The free tram service also re-opens this weekend, hauling people and their tubes to launch points. If you plan on coming, come early. Hudson said, We expect a crowd.

SPRINGS continued on 7A FCAT continued on 3A Annual Folk Festival set for weekend in White Springs By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org WHITE SPRINGS Floridas food, dance, art, crafts, history and music will be celebrated during the 60th Annual Florida Folk Festival this weekend.

FOLK continued on 7A By RICK BURNHAM email@example.com School officials have closed the pool at the Aquatic Complex for the Memorial Day week end following an incident Wednesday in which three children were taken to the emergency room at Lakeshore Regional Medical Center. Superintendent of Schools Mike Millikin said paramedics responding to the scene remarked the children may have had a reaction to chlo rine. We think it was just a freak accident, he said. It is just speculation, but we think that maybe one of the pumps may have shut off, and when it came back on it gave a burst of chlorine. We think one or two of the kids may have been a little too close at the time. The children all checked out fine, Millikin said. This time of year we have school pool parties, and the kids had been swimming all morning, Millikin said. After lunch a few of the kids got to feeling ill. We cleared the pool and got everyone out, and then called 911. Three of the children were taken to the emergency room as a precaution. We under stand that some parents too their kids to see a doctor on their own. Millikin said the water in the pool was immediately tested by the local health depart ment as well as the hazardous materials team from the Lake City Fire Department. The results showed no abnormalities, he said. More tests were scheduled for the week end and next week, he said. School officials plan to have a representa tive from the manufacturer of the pump check the calibration and ensure that it is function ing correctly. Regardless of those results, the pool is closed for the holiday weekend. Were closing it just to be safe, he said. Pool closed as precaution after 3 kids get sick FILE Memorial Day The Lake City VA will hold its 18th annual Catch the Spirit Memorial Day Ceremony, Honoring Those Who Gave All, at 9:30 this morning on the facilitys front lawn.

Romans 12:10 NIV LOS ANGELES Josh Brolin thought he was just being goofy when he launched into a Tommy Lee Jones impersonation on a night out with the Coen brothers and their pal Barry Sonnenfeld. Turns out, Brolin was on an audition of sorts. Four years later, Brolin shows his Jones act to the world in Sonnenfelds Men in Black 3, playing a young version of Jones Agent K opposite Will Smiths Agent J as the sci-fi comedy franchise returns after a 10-year break. After the Directors Guild Awards in 2008, Brolin went out on the town with Joel and Ethan Coen, who had just won the top honor for No Country for Old Men, their crime thriller that costarred Jones and Brolin. Sonnenfeld, the cinematog rapher on the Coens first three films, had won a TV prize for Pushing Daisies at the guild honors and joined them afterward, meeting Brolin for the first time. Brolin had everyone laughing as he shifted into an imitation of Jones melodic drawl. Brolin, 44, has taken on tough interpretations before, earning acclaim as President George W. Bush in W. and receiving an Academy Award nomi nation for Milk as San Francisco city supervisor Dan White, the man who killed fellow supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. But Brolin said doing a credible take on Jones Agent K may have been the most-challenging acting job hes had, requiring subtle humor as straight man to Smith while making the younger K his own man and not just a caricature. Men in Black 3 is the third movie featuring Jones and Brolin, after No Country and In the Valley of Elah. The movie begins and ends in present times, with Smiths J, as always, trying to draw out Jones taciturn sad-sack K. The mid-section sends J back to 1969, where a nasty alien plots to kill Brolins young K so he can carry out an invasion of Earth in the future. Sonnenfeld has vivid memories of that night with the Coens, when he first met Brolin. What struck Sonnenfeld more than Brolins Jones imper sonation was a physical feature the two actors share. What I remember, said the director, is, oh my God, this man is the only person on the planet that has a head as physically as huge as Tommy Lee Jones. Kardashian, Jonas Miss USA judges LAS VEGAS Donald Trumps Miss USA pag eant is keeping up with the Kardashians. Pageant officials announced Thursday that Rob Kardashian, whos a former Dancing with the Stars competitor and the brother from the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality show, will be among the celebrity judges at the 61st annual pageant June 3 in Las Vegas. Former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, pop star Joe Jonas and Fashion Police host George Kotsiopoulos also will help name the next Miss USA. The winner goes on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. Reality stars Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic will host the competition at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Contestants will be judged in swimsuit, eve ning gown and interview categories. Davis addresses alma mater CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis urged graduating seniors at the high school in the strug gling Rhode Island city where she grew up to treasure hard times and joyous moments. Davis spoke to Central Falls High School seniors, members of student government and student actors Thursday morning. She is a 1983 graduate of the school and has con tinued to support educa tion in Central Falls. Davis tells students that the privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. Principal Joshua Laplante calls Davis a treasured graduate. He says she has overcome adversity but remembers where she came from with a genuine sense of pride. Brolin rejuvenates MiB Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith and Josh Brolin pose at the premiere of their film Men in Black 3, at the Zeigfeld Theatre in New York. The film opens nationwide on Friday. ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI Federal forecasters are predict ing a near-normal outlook for the Atlantic hurricane season. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its initial outlook for the six-month storm season Thursday at its Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory in Miami. Hurricane season offi cially begins June 1, but it started early this year when Tropical Storm Alberto formed May 19 off South Carolinas coast. The group predicts nine to 15 named storms, including four to eight hur ricanes. One to three could become major hurricanes. This hurricane season marks the 20th anni versary of Hurricane Andrews catastrophic landfall in South Florida as a Category 5 storm. Last year marked the sixth consecutive year without the U.S. landfall of a major hurricane, which are classified as Category 3 storms with sustained winds of 111 mph or higher. Unemployment system draws ire TALLAHASSEE Two legal groups say Floridas violating federal law with procedural barriers that deprive thousands of jobless workers from receiving unemployment compensation. They also say data shows Florida has erected more obstacles to unem ployment compensation than any other state. Florida Legal Services and the National Employment Law Project on Thursday released a letter outlining their alle gations sent last week to U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. They contend a 45-ques tion, online skills test and reporting requirements for job searches and availabil ity to work have unfairly prevented otherwise quali fied jobless workers from getting benefits. The groups allege those barriers violate require ments in federal grants the state has received to administer its unemploy ment insurance program. Suit seeks records police shooting MIAMI BEACH A lawsuit is seeking records from a fatal police-involved shooting in Miami Beach during last years busy Memorial Day weekend. The lawsuit was filed Thursday on behalf of the family of the man who was shot and two bystand ers who were seriously wounded. They want offi cial records surrounding the shooting so they can pursue legal action against the cities of Miami Beach and Hialeah, whose offi cers were involved. Authorities say about 100 rounds were fired at a car being driven by 22year-old Raymond Herisse in a crowded South Beach area. Police claimed Herisse tried to run offi cers down and also had a gun in the car. Its not clear if he ever fired it. Prosecutors say an investigation is ongoing. This year police plan an increased presence for Memorial Day. No injuries when sea plane crashes SANFORD A sea plane has crashed into Lake Jesup in central Florida. The Seminole County Sheriffs office says there were no serious injuries from the crash, which hap pened Thursday morning. Deputies say they found the plane overturned in the water near Bird Island, near the center of the lake. The Orlando Sentinel reports deputies found the pilot standing in waist-deep water. Gov. makes faux pas with King MIAMI Apparently Florida Gov. Rick Scott decided not to ignore the elephant in the room. Scott met this week in Madrid with Spanish King Juan Carlos and repeatedly asked about the monarchs recent and controversial elephant hunt in Botswana. The 74-year-old king injured his public standing by going on the expensive hunt while the rest of Spain faces a major finan cial crisis. He also injured his hip. In videos of the encoun ter, Scott joked hed ridden elephants but never tried to shoot them. And he told the king he needed a better tale than saying he hurt his hip get ting out of bed. The king laughed uncomfortably but gave little response. Scott was in Spain to drum up business for Florida. He is set to return Thursday. 2012 hurricane season could be a busy one 2A n Singer Tom T.

By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com Several Columbia County residents expressed their disapproval of Amendment Four at the Charter Review Commissions second public hearing on Thursday night. According to Charter Review Consultant Kurt Spitzer, the proposed amendment removes the mandate to provide consent agendas and backup agendas online. When a citizen asked for clarification of the amendment, Spitzer added, The way the amendment is drawn now in terms of the charters mandate to the county commission and its subordinate boards for placing agendas and back-up information on the Internet, in this case the countys website, the amendment would repeal both things, Spitzer said. The amendment as its drawn now, repeals posting agendas, it repeals posting back-up informa tion. The government should never take steps to restrict access from county activities but in fact should enhance the availability to the general public, former charter review member David Rountree said at the public hearing. Having been on the original charter devel opment and its first review, I believe from my own personal experience you are missing the purpose of this home rule charter, Rountree said. Its purpose was to provide the frame work of how citizens of Columbia County wanted our local government to function. Rountree urged the review commission to remove the amendment from being voted on. One citizen spoke against proposed Amendment Five, which would remove a department heads option to appeal termina tion by the county manager to the county commission. No public comments were voiced for Amendments One, Two or Three. The third, and last, scheduled public hear ing for the charter review will take place on Tuesday, June 5 at 6 p.m. in the School Board Administrative complex auditorium.

BROWN/ Lake City Reporter Former charter member David Rountree speaks at the public hearing for the Columbia County Charter Review Commission on Thursday night. Amendments draw ire at meeting By TONY BRITT email@example.com The local housing market looks to be on the rebound, based on statistics released this week by Florida Realtors Association detail ing housing sales in April. The statistics compare housing market results from April 2012 to April 2011. The report shows the median sales price for a home was $95,000 in 2011, compared to $105,000 in 2012, a 10.5 percent increase. The average sales price for a home in April 2011 was $127,285, compared to $126,514 in April 2012. Closed home sales were also up 16 percent com pared to last year. The report shows that 29 homes sales were closed in 2012 compared to 25 in April 2011. The basic idea is that prices are up a little bit, inventory is low and in Columbia County prices have risen 10.5 percent since last April, said Dan Gherna, Lake City Board of Realtors executive vice president. Our months supply of single-fam ily inventory has dropped from a year down to four months which is really, really good. The number of new list ings for Columbia County also increased 9.8 percent over last year. In April 2011 there were 61 new listings on the report, compared to 67 new listings in April 2012. Gherna said the local housing market is making a comeback. Its not a tremendous rebound, but its coming back a little bit, he said. People can see in certain segments of the housing market a little bit of appre ciation. Gherna said hes uncer tain where the rebound will be a long term trend. When inventory goes down that means there is demand, he said. I think there is little bit of a pentup demand. Were in an election year and interest rates could go up after the end of the year, and I think people see and recognize that, and theres probably never been a better time to buy. The resurgance of the housing market appears to be a statewide trend, Gherna said. South Florida started rebounding last year and its started to work its way up into North Florida, he said. percent at Eastside; 7 percent at Columbia City; and 6 percent at Westside. Alternative assessments typically cut the number of students held back about in half, said Gerard Robinson, state education commissioner. More than 90 percent of third-graders have been promoted annually since 2006. Last year, only 7 percent were retained. The future success of third-grade stu dents depends on mastering essential read ing skills, Robinson said in a statement. Todays results help us determine how and where we should focus our resources so students who are struggling with reading get the extra help they need to succeed. FCAT results also are the major compo nent for determining A-through-F school grades the state uses to financially reward top schools and sanction failing schools, including faculty, staff and student transfers and even closure. Thursdays results show 60 percent of county third-graders are reading at or above grade level by scoring three or higher on the one-through-five scale, compared to 56 percent statewide. For math its 59 percent, compared to 58 percent statewide. Last year 78 percent of county students were at or above grade level in reading and 81 percent met grade level standards in math. At Westside Elementary 78 percent of third-graders scored at or above grade level; 67 percent at Pinemount; 66 percent at Eastside; 63 percent at Columbia City; 61 percent at Five Points; 58 percent at Fort White; 53 percent at Summers; 45 percent at Niblack; 37 percent at Melrose Park. Students last year took the FCAT 2.0 for the first time, but scores then were computed according to a previous grading scheme. As a result, 72 percent passed the reading test and 78 percent passed the math exam statewide. The 2011 tests now have been rescored using the new grading system, and the results are nearly the same as this year 57 percent for reading and 56 percent for math. To soften the blow of lower FCAT scores on school grades, the State Board of Education last month ordered that no school can drop more than one letter grade this year. The state next will release FCAT read ing and math results for other grades before computing school grades. FCAT: Scores drop Continued From Page 1A From staff reports A Mayo womans unborn child died as a result of a traffic accident Wednesday on I-75, the Florida Highway Patrol reported late Thursday. Crystal G. Bennett, 28, was northbound in the right lane when her 2008 Lincoln MKZ crossed into the inside lane and was struck on the left side by a 2003 Chevy SUV driven by Daniel L. Hallmon, 50, of Franklin, N.C., FHP said. The badly-damaged Lincoln came to rest in the left lane facing east. Hallmons SUV entered the right shoulder and came to rest in a roadside ditch. Bennett and her passenger, Brian Bennett, 30, also of Mayo, suffered critical injuries and were lifeflighted to Shands at the University of Florida. Neither was wearing a seat belt at the time of the 5:45 p.m. crash, according to reports. Hallmon, who was wearing a seat belt, was transported to Lake City Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, FHP said. Crystal G. Bennett was eight months pregnant at the time of the accident, according to FHP. The unborn male child was pronounced dead at the hospital, reports said.

No one is too big to fail ONE OPINION I just dont wanna get out of bed this morning. Ive got to get my tax return done yesterday. My dishes just pile up; why dont they wash themselves? My poor neglected exercise bike sits alone in the storage shed. Sound familiar? Most of us have things that need doing that we just dont want to do. Whats the problem? Common sense, folk wisdom, and yes, even psychologi-cal research, tells us that we tend to avoid or put things off that we just dont want to do. Instead, its easier to do what we enjoy doing, or things that we know will give us results well feel good about. But a lot of the stuff doesnt get done even though we know it needs to get it done. We feel a push from a boss, an organization, a commitment, a legal require-ment, or from close relation-ships. Or, it can come from ourselves we know when something must be done, and done on time. We feel pressure, stress, or pain from being aware of the deadline or requirement to get it done. The bad feelings that result may make it even less likely for us to tackle it. We may know what needs to be done, and we may even want to get it done, but it just sits there. We dont act. We avoid it. This is a common situation. What can we do to fix it? Honestly assess your situation. Why am I not getting it done? What are my abilities, capabili-ties, strengths, and attitudes? Hows my health and fitness? Hows my diet? Do I get regu-lar exercise? Do I consume too much coffee, alcohol, cigarettes, prescription drugs, or anything illegal? Have I had an illness or accident Im still recover-ing from? Am I overextended, short of breath, or fatigued? Do I want to do it all; excel at everything? Do I feel like the days too short? Am I going in too many directions; too many irons in the fire? Or, am I bored, anxious, or restless? Depending on how you assess your situation, here are some things you could try: Make the most of what youve got to work with. Take care of that body. Get appropriate medical care. An annual physi-cal exam can identify any health issues. Choose a healthy diet, get a reasonable amount of physical activity, and find ways to reduce stress in your life. Limit coffee, alcohol, junk food, and cigarettes. How about tak-ing deep breaths, or doing regu-lar Yoga or stretching? Accept your limitations. You can only do so much; no one can do it all. You dont have to be outstanding and super-pro-ductive at everything you want in your life. Make a list of your priorities. Focus on whats important. Choose the most appropriate, productive, beneficial direc-tions in which you want to go. Commit to whats important in your life. Schedule your time to get the important things done. Maybe a relaxing weekend is a good time to prepare a weekly schedule. Include things you enjoy in your list of things to do. Tweak your attitudes. Theyre adjustable. Collect one-liners: Lifes a process, not a destination. Enjoy the journey. Enjoy the doing. If not now, when? Take small steps. It may be getting out of bed in the morn-ing, stretching, taking that refreshing shower. Just start, even if you just work at a task or project for five minutes. Stop before its unpleasant. Leave it with a good feeling, and plan to pick it up later. Leaving with a good feeling makes you more likely to be willing to resume it later. Think little.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Its sad to realize Glynnell Presley took time to count the number of times Marian Lewis used the R word in a recent Letter to the Editor and appar-ently missed the intent of that article. As a long-time educator, surely Mr. Presley knows one can choose to either egg on the fight or stop it with a firm hand squarely on the shoulder of caring. He says the article was vitriolic. My dictionary says its meaning is venomous; angry; caustic. I believe the correct sdjective to describe Marian Lewis article would be frustrat-ed, as are most of us common citizens. Mr. Presleys articles come across much more vitri-olic. The people in power, whether in the presidency, in Congress, or at state or local levels, often appear to have had their logic and caring replaced with their own misplaced sense of person-al importance. They often lose touch with the common man people trying to make ends meet ends that seem to move farther apart. Assuming an approximate figure of 65 percent of Americans on some kind of government-subsidized welfare program, that leaves only 35 percent of us working to be able to give our hard-earned money to the government to just hand over to people not willing to work. How long can this go on? The minority, aka the middle class, regardless of color (notice I didnt use the R word), cannot continue to carry the majority. The quote from John Adams There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation: one is by sword; the other is by debt is a serious reminder and portent of things to come. Whatever the figure of our national debt: its too high. Whatever the figure of people on welfare: its too high; what-ever the figure of people out of work: its too high. Whatever the figure of those still working to support the rest: its too low. Mr. presley, our country is in dire straits and we need to ALL work together to turn this mess around. My color doesnt matter; my gender doesnt matter; my reli-gion doesnt matter. What does matter is that I am an American. I vote, and I pray. I wonder if thats all I can do? It is at least more productive than counting words.Susan TuellLake City Stop egging them on Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

ANOTHER VIEW P arents would like to choose where their kids go to school, if they could. In a speech to the Latino Coalitions Annual Economic Summit in Washington D.C., Mitt Romney laid out his case for choice-based education reform. Here we are in the most prosperous nation, but mil-lions of kids are getting a Third World education, he said. And Americas minority children suffer the most. This is the civil rights issue of our era. Part of Mr. Romneys solution is to increase the amount of choice in the education system. Under the Romney plan, tens of billions of dollars in federal education aid for low-income and disadvantaged students would no longer go to school districts but to stu-dents themselves. The students would be able to use vouchers to pay for tuition at any school they wanted to attend, whether public or private, brick-and-mortar or online. The plan would increase options for stu-dents and force public schools to raise their quality or go out of business. Education is a favorable issue for Republicans. A Gallup sur-vey in January found 61 percent of Americans were somewhat or very dissatisfied with the state of public education in the country. This enables Mr. Romney to draw important contrasts with President Obama, particularly regarding unpopular teach-ers unions, which universally oppose vouchers. Mr. Romney touted the Districts voucher-based Opportunity Scholarship Program, which D.C. parents support but teachers unions strongly oppose. The Obama administration is phasing out the program. The Romney campaign has seized the high ground on an issue that leaves the Obama camp with no room to maneu-ver. When it comes to dogmati-cally supporting the teachers unions, Mr. Obama has no choice. I nvestment-services firm J.P. Morgan blew $2 billion on bad trades, and the total damage could rise to $5 billion. Though the Obama administra-tion wants you to think other-wise, this is proof the market works. Federal agencies already are pouncing. The Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and FBI have opened investigations even though J.P. Morgan has not been accused so far of wrongdoing and there is no indication that the bank is at financial risk. The White House hopes this massive loss can serve as a pretext for further regulation. If any-thing, J.P. Morgans mistakes demonstrate the robustness of market discipline. The SEC and FBI are poring over J.P. Morgans regula-tory filings the public disclo-sures that are required under law for trades deemed to be risky. The CFTC has jurisdic-tion because it is supposed to regulate the market for credit derivatives, the financial instruments that were used to hedge a trade that went wrong and triggered the mul-tibillion-dollar loss. Even if the final damage tally reaches $5 billion, J.P. Morgan still will be in the black, with profits of $25 bil-lion. The companys assets are valued at $2.3 trillion, so the firms missteps are far from fatal with such a mas-sive diversified portfolio. The only losers from this bad deal are the people who, if it had gone the other way, would have reaped the rewards: the J.P. Morgan employees who set up the deal and the inves-tors. Instead, heads rolled within a week at J.P. Morgan, and the firm lost some of its value and reputation. Thats exactly how financial markets are supposed to work. It is a risky business. The same people who stand to earn the rewards must bear the risk. The notion of a risk-free, error-free mar-ket is fundamentally flawed. Some trades inevitably will go wrong. What is important is to make sure that third parties such as taxpayers arent stuck with the bill when that happens. The alter-native is to do what Congress did in 2008: bail out banks, breaking the link between risk and reward. Regulators should ensure adequate disclosure so inves-tors are aware of the risk they are taking on, but they arent even good at this lim-ited task. Despite the massive oversight failures at the SEC that enabled Bernie Madoffs Ponzi scheme to rip off $50 billion and regulators who didnt notice the funds that went missing at MF Global Holdings, no bureaucrat was fired for this massive on-the-job failure. The Obama administration claims the loss at J.P. Morgan highlights the need for the Volcker rule, which restricts trading activity and is man-dated by the Dodd-Frank Act. The surest way to keep banks strong is not by adding more layers of bureaucratic regulation but by keeping the link between reward and risk tight. Enforcing market disci-pline means no more taxpay-er-funded bailouts because there is no bank that is too big to fail. The case of choicebasededucation Make the most of what youve got to work with.

J esus has done many miracles and signs in front of the people of Jerusalem. Many of the rulers had seen these signs and heard the teaching of Jesus. They even believed or were persuaded that what Jesus was saying was true. However, they were not willing to con-fess with their mouth what they believed. The question is why? John the apostles says it was because, they loved the approval of men rather than the approv-al of God (John 12:43). So why would people be hindered from confessing what they believed because they want the approval of men rather than God? Acceptance by our peers is a great motivator. Wanting to be accepted by our friends will make us do a lot of things which we might not really want to do or it might even hinder us from doing things which we know that we should do. We do not want to be all alone in what we do. We want to fit in. But why would we exchange the approval of our fellow man for the approval of God? Why would we not do what God has asked us to do because of what our friends will do? In the situation of the people in our text, they wanted to stay in the syna-gogue. They did not want to lose their position in their religious circle. They wanted to keep their status in the com-munity which meant that they could not be thrown out of the synagogue. But lets meditate on the consequences of having the approval of men rather than the approval of God. Mankind can-not give us eternal life, but God can if we have his approval. Mankind cannot keep us from eternal destruction, but God can if we have his approval. One of the other things which makes it hard for us to seek the approval of God versus getting the approval of men is that mans approval is immediate while God is in the future. We, as well as those in the days of Jesus, want instantaneous gratification. We want the pat on the back today, not tomorrow. Another thing which makes it harder for us to seek Gods approval rather than mans is that we have to live with these people every day. God is real, but we cannot see Him, therefore we sometimes think that He is not around or looking at what we are doing. One final thing which may make it harder for us to seek the approval of men rather than the approval of God is that we are not really persuaded or really believe what God has said. If we were truly convinced that what God has said, then it would be easier for us to seek His approval. When they as well as us are truly persuaded, we truly believe what God has said, then we will be willing to open our mouth and tell others what we believe. We will be willing to make that confes-sion. Let us not be like those people who had a heart that was hardened or eyes that could not see but rather let us be converted, let us really believe and therefore be willing to confess. Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City, Florida area. All Scriptural quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, Holman Bible Publishers, unless otherwise stated. P salms 33:12a says: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Last week we showed only some of what the Bible has to say about homosexuality. The word of God clearly says it is a sin. Galatians 6:7-8 says in The Amplified Bible: Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at scorned, disdained or mocked (by mere pretensions or professions, or His precepts being set aside). He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God. For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap. For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruc-tion; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap life eternal. If we believe in God and His word, then we must believe that only corrup-tion can come out of homosexuality. While I believe that this sin may be the final condemning sin of America, the word of the apostle Paul in Romans chapter one seems to prove this could be true. Paul wrote beginning in verse 18: For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who sup-press the truth in unrighteousness. Verse 20 (paraphrase mine): Man in his heart knows Gods attributes. They are clear, so man is without excuse. Verse 21: They knew God but did not glorify Him, their hearts were darkened. Verse 24: God gave them up to uncleanness. Verse 25: They exchanged the truth of God for the lie (The devil is the lie). Verse 26-27: For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise, also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful and receiving in them-selves the penalty of their error which was due. Verses 28-31 mention other things that men are guilty of. Then in verse 32 Paul writes: These things are deserving of death to all those who practice them. Today, far too many pulpits are too silent about these things, some mention it in passing, but do not demand that their flock steer clear of such practices. We are called to not only stand with God, but to stand firmly against all sin, especially this sin. I call upon every-one who names the name of Christ as their savior to let everyone know it is a sin. If we do not stand firm against such sin, we as a nation are begging for Gods judgment upon us. Far too many churches today accept homosexuals into their membership without any repentance. Any local church that accepts these into their membership without repentance endorses their sin. The thing that may bring judgment the quickest is because we who know better do nothing about it. So today as a preacher of the Word, I call upon all pastors to stand boldly in public and to their congregation against this sin, and all Christians to stand firmly against it. Letting them know that Christ will forgive all their sins and accept them into His fold with repen-tance. Hugh G.

LAKE CITY REPORTER RELIGION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 25-26, 2012 7A I f the book of Nehemiah were a fairy tale, last week would have been a great time for the and they lived happily ever after end-ing. Verse 18 concluded by saying So they began this good work. Doesnt that sounds similar to so the prince married the princess, and they lived happily ever after? All of us living in the real world know the fairy tale ends here and the hard work, whether building a wall or building a marriage, is about to begin! In our context, this approaching difficulty is evident by the word began. Unlike our English word, the original Hebrew translation doesnt simply mean to start some-thing. According the Old Testament Lexical Aids, began is defined by two Hebrew words, Hazaq and Yad. Hazaq means to make firm, strengthen, support, and encourage; to preserve and Yad refers to the physical hand and is used figuratively to sym-bolize power or strength. Those committing to the work of rebuilding the wall understood that this was more than just a neighbor-hood beautification proj-ect. This wall was about preserving their heritage as the people of God, and while their hands would do the physical work, it was clearly Gods power that would bring success! Now that we are ready to move ahead, we can be sure that anytime a good work begins, opposition will not be far behind. In Nehemiahs case, the opposition already has a name: Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official. We met them earlier when they became aware and very much disturbed about Nehemiah coming to help those living in Jerusalem. Now we find they have added to their number: Geshem the Arab joins Sanballat and Tobiah in their troubled state and begins to mock and ridicule the Jews by asking, What is this you are doing? Are you rebelling against the king? While this may seem an innocuous question, it actually points to some very serious history. The book of Ezra records the account of ear-lier groups of exiles that returned to the broken down city of Jerusalem and successfully rebuilt the temple and restored the sacrificial worship sys-tem. However, the work was brought to a halt on two different occasions when officials from sur-rounding areas persuaded the King to stop the rebuilding on grounds of rebellion. (See Ezra 4:1-5 and 4:6-22) Nehemiahs opposition would have been very familiar with these events and used them to threaten the cur-rent project. Nehemiahs response is nothing short of fascinating: The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding, but as for you, you have no share in Jerusalem or any claim or historic right to it. (Nehemiah 2:20) There are a few things we need to take note of here in dealing with oppo-sition in our own lives: 1) Notice that Nehemiah refused to get tangled into a debate. He already had the kings permission, and blessing, to rebuild the wall. But instead of arguing the point, he gave credit to God. Dont waste time arguing over or defending what God has called you to do with naysayers. 2) He refused to be intimidated and clearly stated his mission: the rebuilding will start! Translation? Stay focused! 3) He addressed Sanballat, Tobiah and Geshem as foreigners by reminding them to go even farther into history and remember that Jerusalem belonged to the Jews.

Its Floridas premier heritage event. We showcase the folklife and many different cultures that make up Florida to keep them alive. We are the oldest and largest state-run folk festival in the nation. Thomas said the threeday event draws more than 20,000 people annually. More than 300 performances have been scheduled by Floridas greatest folk and roots artists, includ-ing national recording art-ists, songwriters and musi-cians of swing, folk, blues, gospel, country, Latin, jazz, bluegrass, Caribbean and zydeco music. In addition to the music for which the festival has gained fame, the festival is also a celebration of Floridas land, people and diverse cultural heritage. Folk artists and traditionbearers are presented each year in the Folklife Area and the 2012 Folklife Area will celebrate the diverse cultures of west Floridas Panhandle inland counties. Thomas said the event will also feature a Teen and Tween open mic ses-sion where youths can sing, dance or perform. We really try and keep the youth involved, she said. The South Hamilton Elementary School chorus is also scheduled to per-form. historically low water lev-els may cause park offi-cials to temporarily close the North Entrance to tub-ing this summer, she said. However, the parks South Entrance would remain open, would remain open, including the Midpoint and Dampiers Landing launch-es. The northern section of the river is shallow and nar-row, so park officials will close the section if water levels get too low, she said. The section is closed the day after Labor Day until the Friday before Memorial Day to allow vegetation to regrow and recover from heavy use during the sum-mer. The parks website will have updates in the event of tubing closure. We have been preparing since the beginning of March, she said. Park employees love seeing visi-tors enjoy the park. Every weekend we usually have someone from a foreign county, Hudson said. To protect the river, food, drinks, pets, tobacco, alco-hol and disposable items are not allowed on the river, she said.

Allen wants to fix mistakes from spring game By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com With the 33-7 win against Dunnellon High still visible in the rear-view, Columbia High is already looking forward to summer workouts. June 11 we will come to work, Columbia football head coach Brian Allen said. We will show up at 8 a.m. with the attitude that were ready to be a champion. Still, Allen knows that spring can be a good indicator of things that need to be worked on heading into the fall. We have to have the mental preparation every day, Allen said. State champs do things differently. Its never as good as the scoreboard looks. One of Allens biggest problems with the spring game was the Tigers mental errors at times. Columbia had multiple holding penalties, two of which negated touchdowns, and the Tigers put the ball on the ground twice. We had too many mistakes, Allen said. There was good and bad. I know that we have to do a better job of ball security. We cant have our running backs run half a mile only to get a holding. We have to fix it. Were still missing reads. But theres also good to go along with the bad. Allen seems to have found another weapon at running back. I was extremely impressed with Lonnie (Underwood), Allen said. He has (Ronald) Timmons speed and can move like Braxton (Stockton). By the time this thing is done, he could very well be the best weve had. Hes a great kid and showed how big he can be (in the spring game). Of course, he wont turn too far from his current group of returning running backs. Timmons finished with 10 rushes for 43 yards CHS continued on 10B

ASSOCIATED PRESSSprint Cup champion Rusty Wallace smiles after being el ected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C.Wallace heads NASCAR Hall of Fame groupBy PETE IACOBELLIAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Sprint Cup champion Rusty Wallace hated running sec-ond to anyone and doesnt plan to start now that hes part of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Wallace, the 1989 series champion who won 55 races, headed the group of five picked Wednesday as NASCARs newest Hall of Famers. The others selected were Leonard Wood, Herb Thomas, Cotton Owens and Buck Baker. Wood was a famed member of the Wood Brothers teams whose brother, Glen, was picked for the hall last year. Thomas was one of NASCARs first superstar drivers, Owens a success as driver and owner, and Baker is 14th on the victory list with 46. But it was Wallace, the sharp-tongue, quick-witted driver turned TV analyst, who promised to keep pro-moting the sport and the hall to anyone wholl listen. I can tell you what, Im not going to run second to Darrell Waltrip. I can tell you that, Wallace said. NASCAR chairman Brian France said the fourth class was the hardest so far to select. Voters said there was a divide between those panelists eager to honor the sports pioneers and those understanding what a personality like Wallace could do for the Hall and NASCARs continued growth. We need people who can represent the Hall of Fame now, said Hall of Fame member and voter Ned Jarrett. Still, Wallace was third among inductees at 52 percent of the vote behind Thomas and Wood, who received 57 percent. Owens was next at 50 percent with Baker and Fireball Roberts tying at 39 percent. A re-vote was done the first time thats happened in four Hall of Fame classes and Baker took the final spot. Wallace said he was honored to be nominated and was comfortable waiting his turn behind others. Im total surprised. I really am, he said. My numbers are one thing and the wins, thats there. But the names, you think of Benny Parsons, you think of Freddy Lorenzen, Fireball Roberts and Wendell Scott, these are guys I grew up listening to. Wallace thought those were the people who would get in. And I was like, I made it? I dont know if Im going to sleep tonight, he said. Wallace is ninth on the career victory list. He was a master of the short tracks with 25 of his victories com-ing at Bristol, Martinsville, North Wilkesboro and Richmond. Im just humbled, I really am, he said. Wallaces former crew chief, Robin Pemberton, works as NASCARs vice president for competition and is a Hall of Fame voter who considered his former driver a strong candidate. There were a lot more people that had good things to say about Rusty and what he had done after he hung up the helmet. I felt pretty good that he would have enough votes to get in, Pemberton said. The Wood Brothers team was credited as pioneers of the modern pit stop. Leonard, alongside Glen and Delano Wood, was the teams chief mechan-ic. Leonard Wood won 96 races and 117 poles in 900 races as a crew chief Wood compared this moment to February 2011 when the Wood Brothers and driver Trevor Bayne stunned the NASCAR world with a victory at the Daytona 500. We won the Daytona 500 the year before last and it was one of the most excit-ed and celebrated winning circles ever and I think this fits right in with that, he said. Wood remembered in the early 1960s when he watched drivers like Roberts and Smokey Yunick take 45 seconds in the pits. His mechanical mind got going on how to cut that down and the modern pit stop was taking shape. We figured we could save a lot of time, Wood said. Owens had success as a driver and owner in NASCAR. He won nine races in NASCARs premier series and finished second for the 1959 champion-ship to Hall of Famer Lee Petty. Owens later hired Hall of Fame drivers in Junior Johnson and David Pearson, winning 38 times as an owner. Thomas, who died in 2000, is considered one of NASCARs first superstars by winning championships in 1951 and 1953 and fin-ishing second in 1952 and 1954. Baker became the first NASCAR driver to win con-secutive championships in 1956 and 1957. He died in 2002. Wallace was honored to be among so many historic names. To go in with some of those pioneers is just amaz-ing, he said. They showed every one of the inductees in the ceremony in black and white and show me in color. I went, This is kind of crazy. I had a blue uniform and everyone else is black and white pictures. AJ Allmendinger anxious to see resultsBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCONCORD, N.C. AJ Allmendinger landed the ride of his life when Penske Racing grabbed him dur-ing the offseason after Kurt Busch split with the orga-nization. On paper, it doesnt seem as if Allmendinger has done very much with his golden opportunity. In the NASCAR garage, everybody knows better. Allmendinger has never been stronger in NASCAR than he is now, even though he doesnt have the results to show for his improve-ment. He sits 22nd in the Sprint Cup standings after 11 races, and has just one top-10 finish vs. four finishes of 32nd or worse. But hes also led 99 laps, won a pole and qualified inside the top-four four times this season. Last Saturday, he won the pole for the qualifying event before the Sprint All-Star race, only to get a flat tire in the warm-up laps. A flat tire before we come to green? I mean, weve got to do something to change our luck up, he said. Allmendinger had to pit as the field went green to have his tire changed, and it dropped him to last in the 22-car field. What happened next may be a sign that his luck is finally about to turn. He drove his way back into contention, and after chasing Jamie McMurray around Charlotte Motor Speedway for several laps, he made a pass for second place and transferred into the $1 million main event. Although Allmendinger wound up 11th in the All-Star race, he was competi-tive and is now looking ahead to the longest race of the season, the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night at Charlotte. Weve had fast race cars, we just need a little bit of luck, said Allmendinger, adding the All-Star race gives me a good amount of confidence. Im excited to go to the 600. He should be, based on what hes shown so far this season, his first with a com-petitive team since leaving Champ Car after a five-win 2006 season. ASSOCIATED PRESSBoston Celtics Paul Pierce (34) looks to pass as Phil adelphia 76ers Elton Brand, Spencer Hawes, Andre Iguodala and Evan Turner (from right) defen d during the second half of Game 6 of an NBA basketball Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series on Wednesday in Philadelphia. Philadelphia won 82-75.Celtics, Sixers prepare for another Game 7By JIMMY GOLENAssociated PressBOSTON Julius Erving strolled through the 76ers locker room as Philadelphia celebrated beating the Celtics to set up another Game 7 in Boston. It brings back all the memories, the Hall of Famer said after the Sixers forced the first seventh game between the old rivals since he teamed with Andrew Toney to lead Philadelphia past Boston and into the 1982 NBA finals. It seemed like it always came down to them. ... Coming out of the East, (it) was always Boston or Philly. Jrue Holiday scored 20 points and Elton Brand had 13 points and 10 rebounds on Wednesday night to lead the 76ers to an 82-75 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday night that left the Eastern Conference semifinals tied 3-3. Both teams took the day off on Thursday to rest up for Game 7 in Boston on Saturday. Thats all we wanted was to win ... and give our-selves a chance to go into Boston and see what hap-pens on Saturday in Game 7, Sixers coach Doug Collins said after his team stayed alive. I want more. I want more. Were going to get greedy, and we want more. Weve fought, weve worked, and weve gone through a lot as a team. The Sixers and Celtics met 12 times in the play-offs from 1953-69 and five more from 1977-85, foment-ing an animosity that stretched from Bob Cousy and the Syracuse Nationals through Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain and into the era of Dr. J and Bostons original Big Three of Kevin McHale, Robert Parish and Larry Bird. Collins played for the 76ers for eight years, retir-ing in 1981 due to a knee injury that limited him to just 48 games over the pre-vious two seasons. He was hurt when the Sixers took a 3-1 lead in the 81 confer-ence finals before Boston came back, winning Game 7 when Bird banked in the winner for a spot in the finals en route to the Celtics 14th NBA title. The teams met again in the conference finals the next year, and again Philadelphia opened a 3-1 lead before the Celtics came back to force a sev-enth game. It was here we go again. They talked a lot about the psyche of how the Philly fans thought the team had let them down once again, the disappointment, said Collins, who was work-ing the radio broadcasts when the Sixers held on to win in Boston. They won that game. We have that same opportunity. Lets give ourselves that chance. Lets get ourselves back to Boston with a Game 7 and see what we can do. Before Game 6, Collins showed his team the video from the 82 series to psych the players up. Sometimes, I think its good to go back and let guys see the history of the franchise with Boston and Philly, he said. Watching Julius and Maurice Cheeks, and Bobby Jones and Andrew Toney and these guys. Seeing McHale and Bird and Parish and that group of guys. It was good for our guys to see. It will be a new Boston Garden and new Big Three for this Game 7, and the rivalry isnt what it once was, either. Boston is just four years removed from its unprec-edented 17th NBA title and two years away from its last trip to the finals. But the Sixers bare-ly made the playoffs this year and advanced past the top-seeded Bulls thanks at least in part to an injury to Chicagos Derrick Rose. The teams have met just once in the postsea-son since 1985, in the first round of the 2002 playoffs. Its different, Erving said. Theyre probably not the two best teams in the NBA right now. But of the six teams that are left, theyre still here, theyre still competing, they still want it. Their goal is to try and win the championship.Nicks breaks foot at OTAAssociated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks is expected to be sidelined up to three months after breaking his right foot at a team organized activity early Thursday. The Giants announced the injury on Thursday afternoon, say-ing Nicks fractured the fifth metatarsal of his right foot as he was run-ning a route during indi-vidual drills in the Timex Performance Center field house. Nicks will undergo surgery Friday to have a screw inserted into the broken bone. The procedure will be performed by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C. The expected recov-ery time for Nicks is approximately 12 weeks. The Giants report to training camp at the University at Albany on July 26.

PG-13 All eyes on Nadal, Djokovic as French Open nearsBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPARIS Rafael Nadals white T-shirt carried specks of rust-colored clay and his white socks were smothered with the stuff during a practice session on Court Philippe Chatrier in the steamy early after-noon Thursday. As Nadal slid across his favorite surface, in his favor-ite stadium, at his favorite tournament, a picture of a shiny French Open trophy rotated on a video board overhead. Under the close watch of his coach, and fully focused on the work at hand, Nadal never stole a glance at that photo. No need: He ought to have every feature of that prize memorized by now. When the draw for the years second Grand Slam tournament is revealed Friday, much of the atten-tion will be on the paths presented to two men: Nadal, who is bidding for a record seventh French Open championship; and Novak Djokovic, who will be trying to become only the third man in history to win four consecutive major tennis tournaments. With the seedings based on rankings, Nadal will be No. 2, and Djokovic will be No. 1. They can meet each other only in the final June 10, and that is what many expect to happen. By winning their two recent matchups in clay-court finals, Nadal stopped a seven-match losing streak against the Serb includ-ing in the past three Grand Slam title matches and reasserted himself on the surface hes dominated since 2005. He is always the favorite, even if I win against him seven times, Djokovic explained after losing to Nadal at the Italian Open on Monday. He is the best player in the world on this surface. Among active players, thats absolutely indisput-able. And Nadal might very well be the best in history on clay: Since 2005, he is 220-9, a .961 winning per-centage. That includes not only his six championships at Roland Garros, a mark matched only by Bjorn Borg, but also six titles at the Italian Open, seven at the Barcelona Open, and eight at the Monte Carlo Masters. Hopefully I will keep playing like this, Nadal said after his 7-5, 6-3 victory over Djokovic in Rome. When you lose, Nadal acknowledged, referenc-ing his problems against Djokovic, you play with doubts. But that shouldnt be an issue when play begins in Paris on Sunday. Nadal is as comfortable as can be on red clay nothing like his trouble with the footing on the blue clay at the Madrid Open this month, when he was upset by Fernando Verdasco in his second match. ASSOCIATED PRESSSpains Rafael Nadal celebrates after defeating Serbias N ovak Djokovic in the final match at the Italian Open tennis tournament in Rome on Monday. Nadal won 7-5, 6-3.

Carl Edwards337; behind -74 Some of the most exciting moments in Saturdays Sprint All-Star Race atCharlotte Motor Speedway came afterthe checkered flag fell.Car ownerRick Hendrick took a ride down thefrontstretch hanging onto the win-ning car driven by Jimmie Johnson.With one leg hanging down almost tothe track and the other wedged insidethe car,many wondered if the veteranowner could hang on until the carcame to a stop. That was the dumbest thing Ive done ever in racing,Hendrick saidafterward.That was it.I may have done some smart things,but that wasthe dumbest one. Hendrick said that complicating matters was the fact that his legblocked Johnson from properly work-ing the clutch pedal,which could haveled to a very jerky stop. I thought,Im going to be like a busted watermelon out here,Hendrick said. Overall,the ones that looked like busted watermelons were Johnsonscompetitors.He had the best pit stallafter his crew won Thursdays pitcrew competition.Then he won the first of four 20-lap segments,whichput him in front for the final 10-laprun,in which he drove away from thefield for his third All-Star win. As Johnsons team and others had figured out before the race,whoeverwon the first segment was the likelyAll-Star winner,so Johnson rode inthe back for the next three segments,tuning his car for the finish. Everybody knew if you could win that first segment,you could controlthe night,Johnson said.We wereable to do that starting sixth,so itwas pretty awesome. Dale Earnhardt Jr.won the SprintShowdown at Charlotte MotorSpeedway last weekend,and he scored some points on the sponsorship front. Earnhardt,who won the Showdown to advance to the Sprint All-Star race where hefinished fifth,was asked the day before torespond to a move in Congress that wouldban sponsorships of race teams by branchesof the military.He showed some politicalsavvy,or perhaps evidence of some coachingby his teams public relations staff,by throw-ing the ball,so to speak,back into the court ofRep.Jack Kingston (R-Ga.),who sponsoredthe legislation before the HouseAppropriations Committee,which approvedthe measure,which still must pass severalmore steps before becoming final. I think the Republican from Georgia that is heading the bill hasnt even been to aNASCAR race,said Earnhardt,whose No.88Chevrolet is backed by the National Guard.At least it states that in the article [thatappeared in newspapers on Friday]. I would encourage them to do more homework,get more facts,understand the situa-tion a little more.I know just talking to the[National] Guard,and we went through thisbefore,and talking to them,they cant expressto me enough how much this program helpstheir recruiting.They are committed to thebelief it has a profound effect on their recruit-ing and their ability to recruit.Its importantfor them to be visible and to push their brand,and work on their brand,giving peoplean opportunity to learn more about how toget involved in the military. Earnhardt pointed out that NASCAR has proven to be a great vehicle for any entity touse to get their message to the masses. We are one of the biggest sports,he said. Weve got more people attending races andattending our sport than a lot of otheravenues they could be going.I think its goodand healthy for them to be here.I think itworks for them or they wouldnt be a part ofit. He also joked that he was surprised that a conservative politician from deep in tradition-al NASCAR country hasnt been to a race,since many people running for office in thepast have made appearances at races,whichtend to attract audiences that share theirpolitical beliefs. Just because hes a Republican from Georgia,he should have seen a NASCAR raceby now,Earnhardt said,adding that a trip toa race would be educational as well.[Kingston] could come along and visit withthe Guard and talk with the Guard talk tothe people that are at the particular races,and see what the experience is like for them.See how the guard utilizes their program andtheir marketing within the sport. If he hasnt been to a race,hes not seen it firsthand.Then he can make his decision. Others that could be affected by a cut in military sponsorships are Ryan Newman,whose No.39 Chevrolet is sponsored by theU.S.Army,Aric Almirola,whose No.43 Fordis backed by the Air Force and DonSchumachers teams in the NHRA. NOTEBOOK Remembering best 600 everMany in and around NASCAR this season have pointed to a lack of crashes and cautionflags as contributing factors to less than spec-tacular racing.But in a race that is consideredone of the best Coca-Cola 600s ever,a longstretch of green-flag racing at the end added tothe drama. In the 1980 running of NASCARs longest race,Benny Parsons,driving M.C.AndersonsNo.27 Chevrolet,battled Darrell Waltrip,inDiGards No.88,in what many have called thebest 600 ever. The three best cars that day belonged to Parsons,Waltrip and Dale Earnhardt.WhenEarnhardt blew a tire and crashed on Lap276,it left Waltrip and Parsons as the top twodrivers. Over the final 26 laps,the two swapped the lead eight times.Parsons took the lead withtwo laps to go,then held off a last-lap chargefrom Waltrip to get the victory. In an interview several years back,former Charlotte promoter H.A.HumpyWheelercalled the 1980 600 the best ever. We had two big showers run through here that day,and I wasnt sure we were going tofinish that race by dark,Wheeler said.Butwhat the rain did was tighten the track upand make the racing better ... You could see the hunger in Benny Parsons, knowing he could win the 600.You could justfeel it.Darrell could make his car awful wide,and for Benny to do it in the last couple of lapswas really astonishing.Charity race aims to raise $1MThe Prelude to the Dream charity race that Tony Stewart hosts each year at his Rossville,Ohio,dirt track,Eldora Speedway,has becomesuch a big event that NASCAR changed theschedule of a tire test at Pocono Raceway toaccommodate drivers participating in thePrelude.The tire test on June 6,the same dayas the Prelude,will be moved up an hour,from1 p.m.until noon,and end at 4 p.m.instead of5,so drivers can make the 480-mile flight toEldora. The eighth-annual race will be shown on HBO Pay-Per-View with net proceeds from thetelecast going to Feed the Children. Among the competitors are IndyCar racer Tony Kanaan,drag racers Ron Capps andCruz Pedregon,sprint car racers Steve Kinserand Donny Schatz as well as NASCAR regu-lars Tony Stewart,Jimmie Johnson,ClintBowyer,Ryan Newman,Kasey Kahne,BobbyLabonte,Kurt Busch,Kyle Busch,AustinDillon,Ty Dillon and Danica Patrick,who willbe making her first start in a dirt Late Modelcar. The seven previous Preludes have raised a total of more than $3.5 million,but Stewart ishoping this years event will raise $1 millionby itself. Its an ambitious goal,Stewart said.But if we dont set the bar high,were not pushingourselves the way we should.Chevrolet SS to be Cup race carOfficials from Chevrolet announced last week that their new Sprint Cup race car will be theChevrolet SS. The manufacturer will offer the car,a V-8 powered,rear-wheel-drive performance sedan,to the American public beginning late next year.It is Chevys first rear-wheel-drive sedan offeredfor sale in the U.S.in 17 years. All participating manufacturers in NASCAR will be running new model cars in 2013,andthe emphasis is on having the cars more closelyresemble those for sale to the public.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 25-26, 2012 DEAR ABBY: Would you please remind your many readers that the greatest gift we can give to Americas fallen is the gift of remembrance? The leg-acy of those who have died for our freedom -from the Revolutionary War to the present -is something that strengthens and unites Americans. I would like every child to say, I know why I am free, and I know who died for my freedom. Since 1997, Major League Baseball has stopped all games in progress at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day to observe the National Moment of Remembrance. The umpire steps out from home plate, removes his mask, and halts the game so that everyone can pause. The crowd rises as one with hands over their hearts. Along with MLB, the Ironworkers, Sheet Metal Workers and firefighters unions, American Veterans Center, the National Cartoonists Society and Bugles Across America observe the Moment, too. The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events. It is not an event but an act of conscience. Throughout our history, and especially during the past decade, servicemen and women in foreign lands have been dying almost daily to pro-tect freedom and liberty. We encourage all citizens to make every day Memorial Day in their hearts, but especially on Memorial Day itself. May the love of country always bond Americans together. For all of the fallen, let us continue to make this nation one great American family in spirit. To learn more, please go to www.ngl.org. -CARMELLA LaSPADA, FOUNDER, NO GREATER LOVE DEAR CARMELLA: Im printing your reminder in advance of Memorial Day so that readers can plan ahead for it. I know many of them will be interested in observing it. Readers, wherever you are at 3 p.m. local time on Monday, May 28, wont you join me in pausing for the National Moment of Remembrance and honor-ing those brave individuals who died for us? And when you do, make a commit-ment to give back to our country in their memory by putting your remem-brance into action. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My were married 25 years. When Dad died last year, Mom was devastated. Then she got in touch with an old flame. She told us they were just friends. A few months later, she informed us she was moving across the country with him for a mutually beneficial situa-tion. He gives her a place to stay, and she takes care of his house and the bills. She called recently to tell me that she has loved him since she was young and they are now getting mar-ried. Im worried because she has jumped into this so quickly. When they marry, Dad will have been gone not quite a year. I feel she is showing lack of respect for my fathers memory and their mar-riage by doing this so soon. Should I be worried about her, or just happy she has found love again? -DREADING THE WEDDING IN THE MIDWEST DEAR DREADING THE WEDDING: While the man your mother is mar-rying is a stranger to you, he is obviously no stranger to her. They have a history that pre-dates your father. Going on with her life is not disrespectful to your fathers memory. Be happy for your mother and cross your fingers that every-thing works out for her the way she wishes. Worrying about her will help neither of you. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My friends and I are women in our late 40s and early 50s. Some of us are mar-ried, some are single. Individually or as a group we have taken classes, vol-unteered, gone on cruises, gone to clubs and bars -you name it. We have noticed that nearly everyone at these activities is either female or with a female as part of a couple. There are loads of single middle-aged women out there joining things and having fun, but there seem to be almost no single middle-aged men. Friends in various parts of the country report the same thing. Where do the single men go? They rarely go out alone or with a male buddy. Our running joke is theyre all home watching bad cable TV. Middle-aged guys must be there some-where, but where? Youd think that if they wanted to meet women, theyd go where women are, but we rarely see them. Can you solve this mystery for us? -WHERE THE BOYS ARENT, NORTHERN WYOMING DEAR WHERE THE BOYS ARENT: Part of your problem may be that most of the males in your age group are already mar-ried. I dont recommend looking for eligible men in clubs and bars because the ones who go there are usu-ally looking for younger women. I do suggest volunteering because it offers an opportunity to expand ones circle of acquaintanc-es, and even if you dont meet a man there, you might meet a woman who knows someone who is eligible. I caution women who are looking for com-panionship not to hunt in packs because some men find the idea of approach-ing a group of women to be daunting. The pool youre fishing in appears to be small. Have you considered look-ing online for men in other communities in your state? You will increase your odds of success by putting yourselves out there because most relationships begin as the result of luck and timing. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been dating a wonderful man for two years. Were talking about marriage, but there is a problem. He has his exs name tattooed on his backside and its start-ing to bother me. I offered to pay to have it removed, but he doesnt want it off. Do I stay with him and try to get over it, or break up with him and find someone else? Help me! -REALLY CONFUSED GIRL IN COLORADO DEAR REALLY CONFUSED: Removing a tattoo can be expensive, time-consuming and pain-ful. If the only deal-breaker in your relationship is the tattoo, consider asking him to turn the other cheek and have YOUR name placed opposite his exs so you will have equal bill-ing. A large X could be inked over the exs name if it would make you feel better. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Anne Heche, 43; Mike Myers, 49; Octavia Spencer, 42; Ian McKellen, 73. Happy Birthday: Keep moving. Dont slack off or take a timeout. This is a year of opportunity. You must be on top of your game, ready to take advan-tage of whatever comes your way and willing to do whats required in order to reach your destination. Set your goals high and shoot for the stars. Your numbers are 2, 9, 12, 22, 25, 36, 40. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Giving off the right vibe will make the dif-ference. A passionate approach to work will pay off, but disclosing your feelings in personal situa-tions is likely to backfire. Choose your battles wisely so you dont limit opportu-nities to advance. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take a big step for-ward. Terminate relation-ships with people dragging you down. Put your needs and those of your family first, and strive for perfec-tion and advancement. Anger is a waste of time; actions will help you move forward. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont allow anyone to burden you with respon-sibilities that belong to others. Disclosure regard-ing important information will be difficult to come by. Dont act on hearsay. Do your homework and con-centrate on your own life first. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Too much debt or dealing with wage cuts will leave you looking for alternatives. Set up a work-able budget and stick to it. Offer one of your skills as a sideline service in your community. Sitting in idle wont help. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Everything will get to you if you dont address issues as they arise. Your emo-tions will be close to the surface and you will have trouble controlling your temper. Focus on what needs to be done and do it, with or without help. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may feel like winding down, but being industrious will bring in extra cash and should be scheduled in, even if someone objects. Focus on a proper diet and regular exercise. Health concerns must be addressed quickly. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Socializing and meet-ing new people will lead to good memories. Romance is present, so make plans with someone you love, or get out and mingle with singles who interest you. Dont let someones nega-tivity or bad mood hold you back. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Relax and enjoy the company of people who share your interests. A creative project will keep you out of trouble and help you plan for your financial future. Share your feel-ings with someone you want to spend more time with. Live, love and laugh. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dont get worked up over nothing. Discussing politics, reli-gion or anything else you feel strongly about will lead to trouble. Focus on what you can do for the people you love, and make changes that will please everyone, including you. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Listen to a partner or loved ones plans without criticizing or taking over, and you will have a much better chance of controlling the situa-tion when help is needed. An energetic approach to health issues will make you feel better. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Nothing will be easy if you try to swim upstream. Someone is like-ly to put pressure on you if you fall short of an obliga-tion or promise. Dont let anger or frustration lead to a mistake youll regret. Work on self-improvement. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Participating in a social event or doing something creative will lift your spirits. Rely on your own abilities to get things done. Depending on oth-ers will lead to disappoint-ment. Avoid anyone who is trying to manipulate you emotionally. +++++ Birthday Baby: You are feisty, enthusiastic, innova-tive and full of ideas.

10B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 25-26, 2012 T he flyer billed it as a major event on Monday. Columbia High head football coach Brian Allen would address a crowd in the CHS auditorium. A CHS graduate, Allen would speak on honoring the history, understanding the present, and preparing for the future. What Allen got was a shock. A handful of parents and a few Columbia County Quarterback Club members showed up. I was hoping for something more, Allen said. This is the same faithful we always have. We had an opportunity to have something special here. Allen did a good job preaching to the choir. A lot of great young men have come through here and worn the purple and gold, Allen said. I wanted to present that to the people of the community. We are letting people understand where we are, what we have brought to the table and where we want to go. The importance of this being more than football. Allen made a splash in his first year as coach at his alma mater. Columbia made the playoffs and advanced to the second round. Allen said the Tigers have the ability to be a 10-0 team this season. It is more than just winning a state championship, Allen said. The vision I have is for stadium chairs and a FieldTurf surface. You have to think big to get big. Allen said Columbias program had 130 kids, so many he had to borrow helmets from another school to get all the Tigers dressed out. He wants to generate more interest from the community. We cant do it with the same 20 people we have every time, Allen said. We have got to get people in Lake City to be proud of us. Im willing to do whatever it takes to get this room full. We want everybody to have pride in this program. The hundreds of hours coaches put into developing a successful program doesnt filter down to fans. There is just too much going on. Back in the Paul Quinn 1960s, the Quarterback Club reached 1,000 members. Football was about the only game in town then. Compare that to today. People are willing to pony up when needed and asked, but there has to be guidance. Right now, we have a helter-skelter bunch of fundraisers in all sports. Players not only have to work out year-round, they have to wash cars, bag groceries and hold out a hand for donations. Our kids are doing the right thing and that affects the whole student body, Allen said. Athletes learn discipline, but it is not limited to sports. Between band, chorus, dancing, cheerleading, and clubs and organizations, most every student is touched by and benefits from extracurricular activities. This interaction is better than staring at screens and goes hand-in-hand with good academics. Sports and other organizations are important and we should provide more than minimum financial support for them. The school system, which sets millage rates, should adequately fund these activities. Contributions from fundraisers and program sales could then be icing on the cake. When taxes are involved, you might find people are much more interested in attending booster club meetings. The involvement and oversight would be welcome, and take some of the load off the faithful few. $'"n!(" """n# '"n# n !"n nnr "#$##"! % r"#!""" n Q Tim Kirby is sports editor of the Lake City Reporter CHEAP SEATS Tim KirbyPhone: (386) firstname.lastname@example.org Preaching to the choir and Stockton finished with six rushes for 92 yards. Underwood had five carries for 70 yards, but also had two touchdowns called back for holding. Braxton ran good, Allen said. He carried it good. Im proud of Ronald too. They all did good. Allens defense was also a shining point in the spring game with a Ben Kuykendall interception saving a first-half touchdown, a Felix Woods fumble recovery for a touchdown and only one score given up for the game. Felix played big all last season, Allen said. I dont know how were going to replace a kid like that. Were going to try, but I really dont know how we will. Ben Kuykendall gives everything hes got to get it done. Hes a tremendous hitter and a had a big play laying a good lick for us. Javere Smith played well and we only had one problem with a freshman getting caught underneath to allow (Dunnellon) to score a touchdown. Of course, summer will be all about fixing the mistakes. We cant have holding calls bringing back 60or 70-yard touchdowns and be state champions, Allen said. Weve got to clean up the mistakes. We go on the road early in the season and weve got too many mistakes. We have to clean that up. The Tigers will start the cleaning process at 8 a.m. on June 11. CHS: Returns June 11 Continued From Page 1B LEFT : Columbia High quarterback Jayce Barber looks for an open receiver during the 33-7 win against Dunnellon High on Friday.
