By LAURA HAMPSON firstname.lastname@example.org T he 19th annual Wellborn Blueberry Festival will bring the usual purplish-blue shades of blueberrystained fingers and tongues. But this years festival will also feature the golden sunsets and lush greens of original Florida Highwaymen artist R.L. Lewis. Lewis will demonstrate his painting techniques Saturday, June 2 dur ing the fes tival. He will paint local scenes and have artwork for sale, said Douglas Fisher of Wellborn. The Highwaymen are a group of self-taught and self-mentoring artists who began painting idyl lic Floridan landscapes during the racially unsettled 1950s. The African-American artists painted quickly and sold their art in towns and cities across Florida, often along roadsides. Fisher, a local artist and coowner of Suwannee Cabinets, said he was influenced by the Highwaymens work. I like how they romanticize Florida land scapes, Fisher said. When you are out camping youve probably seen those same sunsets, he said. Fisher said he first met Lewis in 2001 at the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala and asked Lewis to be part of the Blueberry Festival this year. Lewis, a retired art teacher, now lives in Cocoa Beach, where he owns a gallery and travels to art festi vals. Lewis is very personable and generous with his knowledge, Fisher said. Fisher said he enjoys painting in the Highwaymens style and was influenced as a child after seeing a Highwaymen mural near his native Indian River. Fisher said he paints in his free time, but has a hard time selling and parting with his pieces. They have actually influenced a lot of Florida artists, he said. Highwaymen originally sold their art for $25 to $50, but now some of the paintings are worth thousands. Fisher said this is the first time the Blueberry Festival has featured such a well known and historically significant artist CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ............... 4A People ................. 2A Obituaries ............. 5A Advice & Comics ......... 3B Puzzles ................. 4B TODAY IN PEOPLE Brace yourself for Piranha 3DD.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com Less than two days after Tropical Storm Beryl brought more than six inches of much-needed rain to Columbia County, local officials held a meeting to discuss the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season, which begins tomorrow. A hurricane preparedness meet ing with local constitutional officers and elected officials took place 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Columbia County Emergency Operation Center. Shayne Morgan, Columbia County Emergency Management director, said the meeting was one of three sched uled for the day to bring local officials, county department heads and emer gency support function staff members up to date on details on the countys preparation of coming Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 Nov. 30. In their preliminary weather reports, fore casters have predicted there will be 10 named storms, four hurricanes. Two of the storms could be major (at least a category 3 hurricane). Morgan said an updated fore cast is expected to be released Friday and officials expect the hur ricane totals to go up depending on prevailing La Nina and El Nino weather patterns. The National Hurricane Center has predicted 9 15 storms during the upcoming hurricane season. During Wednesdays meetings, Morgan and County Manager Dale Williams wanted to make sure constitutional officers had enough resources to do their jobs and meet statutory requirements should a storm hit Columbia County during the upcoming hurricane season. The purpose of the meetings is to make sure everybody is on the same sheet of music when it comes to being ready for a disaster should one happen, Morgan said. We had Tropical Storm Beryl come through this past weekend so we Wellborn artist Douglas Fisher is seen with some of his acrylic paintings inspired by the works of the Highwaymen artists. They incorporate their own style into their art, said Fisher, who was nicknamed The Painter by some of the Highwaymen. I consider myself the new generation of Highwaymen. Im carrying on the tradition of their style of art. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Fisher reads a message on the back of one of his paintings written during the Wild Azalea Festival March 12 by Robert L. Lewis, an original member of the Highwaymen. Annual Wellborn event to include appearance by Highwaymen artist By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Local election officials have not yet removed any non-citizens from the Columbia County voter rolls who as illegal immigrants wrongly regis tered to vote. Elizabeth Horne, Columbia County Supervisor of Elections, said she has not purged any Columbia County voters from the local voter rolls as the state elections office attempts to clean Floridas voter rolls. I havent purged any voters at this time because I have not received any information down from the state to tell me I have anyone on the voter rolls like that, she said. Horne said she expects the information to be provided before the August 14 primary. The state Division of Elections is in the process of sweeping the state election rolls and identifying Florida residents who could be non-citizens, based on a cross-search of data from the Florida Department of Elections and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Voters will be notified by letter that they have been identified as poten tially ineligible to vote. Those voters have 30 days from receipt of the letter to provide verification of their citizen ship or they face removal from the No voters purged from local rolls From staff reports About 156 Fort White High School seniors will become graduates Friday night at Arrowhead Stadium.

AROUND FLORIDA Wednesday: Afternoon: 2-3-7 Evening: 8-6-9 Wednesday: Afternoon: 8-8-7-1 Evening: 2-1-7-9 Tuesday: 2-5-20-32-33 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAIL Y BRIEFING THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 2AWEATHER In God, whose word I praise in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? Psalm 56:4 NIV TALLAHASSEE The Florida Education Association is challenging a proposed state rule on teacher evaluations that would be used in part to determine who gets merit pay. An administrative law judge was holding a hear ing Wednesday on the statewide teachers unions objections but will rule at a later date. The union contends the Department of Educations proposal is vague and arbitrary and does not con form to state law. The department and State Board of Education dispute those arguments. The rule is designed to implement a law passed last year. It includes teach er evaluation requirements based heavily on student testing including the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT. Besides merit pay, the evaluations would be used to impose sanctions, possi bly including dismissal, on low-rated teachers. More released in FAMU hazing case ORLANDO New documents released in the case of a Florida A&M drum major who died after being beaten by fellow band members show that being ritually hazed was what it took to be accepted into the inner circle of the percussionist section. The affidavits for arrest warrants released Wednesday by the State Attorneys Office in Orlando says that it was common knowledge that a band member needed to be hazed to earn the respect of other percus sionists. Eleven band members have been charged with felony hazing for Robert Champions death last November in Orlando. Two others face misde meanors. Champion had opposed hazing. But Champion was vying to be the Marching 100s top leader, and his friends say he volunteered to be hazed in order to win respect from others. Homicide inside burning home PINELLAS PARK Authorities say a man who was found dead inside a burned out building was a homicide victim. Pinellas Park firefight ers were called to a burn ing home about 2 p.m. Tuesday. After the blaze was extinguished, they found the body of a man inside the home. The Tampa Bay Times reports that police are ask ing anyone with informa tion to call them. Officials had not deter mined the mans identity late Tuesday. No further details were immediately available. Baby bear struck, killed on I-4 ALTAMONTE SPRINGS Deputies in central Florida say a baby bear was struck and killed on Interstate 4. Orlando television sta tion WKMG reports a woman heading eastbound hit the bear about 1 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies say she pulled off at a nearby rest area. She was not injured. Authorities say the bear weighed about 125 pounds. No further details were immediately available. Prescribed burn set for Palm Beach TEQUESTA A pre scribed burn is planned for a state park in Palm Beach County. The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Jonathan Dickinson State Park will conduct the burn Wednesday, weather per mitting. About 135 acres of pine flatwoods and scrub in the northwestern por tion of Camp Welaka in Tequesta will be burned. State fire officials say prescribed burning mim ics natural fire cycles to restore healthy forests and natural communities, reduce undergrowth that accumulates over time and decreases the potential for wildfire. Burned lands experi ence an increase in native wildflowers, birds and other wildlife. 4th man arrested in sergeant assault TAMPA A fourth teen has been arrested in the brutal beating of a U.S. Army sergeant on a Tampa street earlier this month. Tampa police said 18year-old Brandon Miller turned himself in after an arrest warrant was issued last week. Police said that Miller was uncooperative and showed no remorse when he was booked into the jail Tuesday. Teachers union opposes proposed evaluation rule LOS ANGELES Its a sink or swim moment for the filmmakers behind the sequel to Piranha 3D. Combining a silly, selfaware sensibility with overthe-top gore, the original comedic horror film star ring the likes of Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd and Elizabeth Shue as townsfolk fighting off prehistoric flesh-eating fish became a just-addwater cult hit when it was released two sum mers ago opposite more mature fare such as The Expendables and Eat Pray Love. Dimension Films, the division of the Weinstein Co. that produces horror and sci-fi fare, quickly christened a sequel with the tongue-in-cheek title Piranha 3DD yes, thats pronounced doubleD in hopes of riding the same wave of success as Piranha 3D, which reportedly cost just $24 million to make but reeled in more than $83 million worldwide. The original also chomped off an unexpect ed amount of guilty-plea sure acclaim, not just from horror blogs, but from actual mainstream critics. Piranha 3D was called bloody watchable trash by Entertainment Weeklys Owen Gleiberman, Jaws without the art by Rolling Stones Peter Travers and cleverly gory by Christy Lemire of The Associated Press. I dont even know if we can top it, lamented sequel director John Gulager, whose horror film Feast was the subject of the Bravo moviemak ing documentary series Project Greenlight in 2005. I dont think that was totally our goal. We just wanted to be different. They had Academy Awardwinning actors and stuff. We just wanted to have our own separate story. Curiously, Dimension isnt screening Piranha 3DD in advance for crit ics, not necessarily a very positive indicator of a films quality. Gulager and his Feast screenwriters dove into the DD project after Alexandre Aja, the previ ous films director, opted to work on new material. Set after that first school of piranha devoured a lake of horny and chesty spring breakers, Piranha 3DD finds the evil critters mak ing their way underground and through plumbing toward a tawdry waterpark called Big Wet. We wanted to double everything, boasted Piranha 3DD screen writer Marcus Dunstan. If the first one had laughs, we wanted to double the laughs. Hatfields and McCoys big draw NEW YORK Theres nothing like a backwoods blood feud to excite televi sion viewers. The Nielsen company said that the first part of the History networks miniseries Hatfields & McCoys was seen by 13.9 million viewers on Memorial Day. Add in Historys immediate repeat that night, and more than 17 million saw the tale. Those are huge num bers in the cable television world. No scripted series on the broadcast networks last week came close. By contrast, Foxs series finale of House last week reached 8.7 million people. Hatfields & McCoys has a couple of big-name stars in Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton and is airing over three nights in twohour chunks. King writing crime novel NEW YORK Stephen King will take on crime for a novel coming out next year. The author of Carrie and other horror classics has a deal with the pub lisher Hard Case Crime for Joyland, a whodunit scheduled for June 2013. King was an early advo cate for e-books, but in a statement released Wednesday he said he has such fond memories of reading crime stories as a kid that Joyland will initially come out just as a paperback. That way fans will have to buy the actual book. David Koechner, a cast member in Piranha 3DD, poses at the premiere of the film on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 in Los Angeles.

Jonathan Dwight Braden, 28, 744 SW Grenda Lane, was charged with possession of drug equipment, battery, giving a false name to law enforcement authorities, escape and resisting an officer. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. According to Lake City Police Department arrest reports, around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday officer Brian Bruenger was dispatched to check out a report of a suspicious person around Ridgewood Street near the Lake Harper Mobile Park. The man was reported ly walking through the mobile home park knocking on doors. Bruenger found the man and asked him for identification and the man reportedly dropped a piece of rolled-up tin foil and then picked it up and threw it down again, before giving Bruenger consent to search his pockets. Bruenger reportedly found a cigarette pack in Bradens front pocket and reported he could see a plastic bag tied in a knot, which he believed contained drugs. Bruenger began to handcuff Braden, but Braden reportedly turned and shoved Bruenger in the face and neck area and began to run. Bruenger grabbed Braden by the arm, but Braden jumped over the bumper of the police car and tried to run past the patrol vehicle, according to LCPD reports. Bruenger pinned Braden against another vehicle and used his free arm to call for backup then grabbed his Taser. Braden yelled that he would stop but did not comply with Bruengers orders to lie on the ground and he continued to kick and punch Bruenger. Braden was able to get loose and Bruenger used his Taser to subdue him. Braden was then handcuffed. When back up officers arrived, Bruenger field-tested the sub stance in the baggie which reportedly tested positive for methamphetamine. Braden was at the front of Bruengers patrol car where another officer read him his Miranda rights, but the hand cuffed Braden began to run through the mobile home park until officers were able to catch him and place him in the back of a patrol car.

Time torethinkSyria? ONE OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY In Syria, a massacre too far LETTERS TO THE EDITOR How can we in good conscience support a man for President who openly agrees with same sex marriage ... be he white, black or purple? Its not the color of his skin that matters but the principles on which he stands. This country is quickly turning into another Sodom and Gomorrah and our own President is cheering it on. Read what God did to them in Genesis 19: 24-25. I urge every American to read the newly released book by Jonathan Cahn, The Harbinger. It reveals how very obviously this nation is under Gods judgment. Read the bone chilling acts of how 9/11 connects with ancient Israel and how God gave them warnings (Isaiah 9:8-12) before they were finally annihilated because they would not humble themselves, repent and change their ways. 9/11 was a terrible thing but it was also a warning to this country .... At the time of 9/11 people asked Where was God in all of this? Yes, where was He? He had been taken out of our schools (The Lords Prayer). The Ten Commandments had been removed from government buildings. Right! Where was He? Maybe He had turned his back on us like we had turned our backs on Him. But wait ... there was a plane en route to Washington D.C. What hap-pened to it? It went down. Do you think maybe in all this God did show His mercy? I do. But I also believe that the destruc-tion of the Twin Towers is just an example of what lies ahead if America doesnt change and return to the principles we were founded upon. For a little while after 9/11 churches were full again on Sunday mornings as in years gone by. Men in high places were praying in public. But as we know, it was short lived. Just as the Israelites did in ancient days, we also fell back into our old ways. In the book, The Harbinger, you will read how Americas dignitaries responded to 9/11 in almost exactly the same way the Israelites did after they were attacked by the Assyrians. You may ask then ... is there any hope for America? 2nd Chronicles 7:14 answers that question: If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. We as individuals cant change a whole country. But we can change ourselves ... if we humble ourselves before God and repent our sins. No, we cant change America but by changing ourselves we can be an example for others. To change ourselves we must believe, repent and receive. Acts 16:31 says: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved, and thy house. Mark 1:15 says: The time is fulfilled, the Kingdom of God is at hand; repent ye, and believe in the gospel. John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that who-soever believeth in Him should not perish, but have (receive) everlasting life. We have a great responsibility to our country, to our families and to ourselves to prayerfully seek Gods wisdom when voting for candidates for any office. We should do this in every decision we make. Before we can say God Bless America, we need to ask our-selves this question: Is America blessing God?Doris FranksLake City Is America blessing God?

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com Q The Washington Times Q The Washington Post OPINION Thursday, May 31, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A A n MSNBC host issued an apol-ogy for saying he is uncomfortable calling Americas fallen troops heroes on Memorial Day weekend. His gaffe was to say what most left-ists firmly believe. Chris Hayes, who appears on MSNBC and is editor-at-large for the left-wing magazine the Nation, created instant contro-versy Sunday when he said, I think it is very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words heroes. I feel comfortable uncomfortable about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. The quote went viral after it was linked on the Drudge Report, and, on Monday, Mr. Hayes issued an explanation. In seeking to discuss the civilian-military divide and the social distance between those who fight and those who dont, he wrote, I ended up reinforc-ing it, conforming to a stereo-type of a removed pundit whose views are not anchored in the very real and very wrenching experience of this long decade of war. And for that I am truly sorry. The word heroes has been used to describe Americas fallen for more than 200 years. Its not rhetorically proximate to justifications for war but a traditional mark of gratitude and respect for the sacrifice made by the person who was killed and the family members left behind. Its important that Mr. Hayes apologized for his tactless quip, but it accurately reflected the extreme liberal beliefs about those who serve in uniform. MSNBC viewers and readers of the Nation have heard propa-ganda like this before. Americans should push back against the liberals patronizing and contemptuous line on the troops more often, but dont expect apologies very often. S yria may have gone a massacre too far. Over the weekend govern-ment-backed thugs, known as shabiha, killed execution-style 108 villag-ers, most of them women and children and many of them in their own homes. The Syrian government blamed it on terrorists and for-eign extremists, but the town had earlier been shelled by gov-ernment tanks and artillery, and the claim was quickly belied by gruesome videos of dead chil-dren and mass graves posted by anti-regime activists. There was the predictable, and predictably ineffective, vote of censure by the U.N. Security Council. But the killings greatly increased Syrias growing dip-lomatic isolation and ostracism. Most of the major nations, including the United States, expelled Syrian diplomats after the massacre. And even the defense put up by Russia, Syrias staunchest Syrian ally, sounded increas-ingly lame and half-hearted. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov issued a general warning against using the kill-ings as a pretext for taking military measures. Tellingly, Lavrov said Russia didnt care who was in power in Syria, as long as there is an end to the violence and a process underway for Syrians to decide on the future of their country. The Obama administration has been urging Russia to pres-sure Syrian President Bashar Assad, a second-generation dic-tator, to give up his office and leave the country, which Assad has given no evidence of doing or even contemplating. The fear is that left to itself the fighting will degenerate into an all-out civil war with the fight-ing spilling over into neighbor-ing nations. Thus, the stalemate has caused talk to increasingly turn to military intervention. On Fox News this past weekend, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen, Martin Dempsey said he was prepared with mili-tary options if the White House should request them. He said those options should be wielded carefully and cautiously but it may come to a point with Syria because of the atrocities. Even U.N. special envoy Kofi Annan, who has unsuccessfully tried to broker several cease-fires in Syria, concludes, We are at a tipping point. T he observers dis-patched by the U.N. Security Council to monitor an illusory cease fire in Syria have been reduced to adding up the bodies of massacred civilians. In Houla, a collection of impoverished villages near the city of Homs, they counted 108 after a rampage Friday by a government-backed militia. The dead included 34 women and 49 children. Fewer than 20 in Houla died from shelling by government tanks and artillery, a U.N. spokesman said Tuesday. The rest were shot at close range and frequently mutilated, their throats cut and their eyes poked out. Entire families were shot in their houses, the Associated Press quoted the spokesman, Rupert Colville, as saying. Horrific as it was, the Houla massacre is not unique, just bet-ter documented than the crimes perpetrated by the regime of Bashar al-Assad in towns and cities across Syria. More than 1,000 people have died since the Security Council, with the enthu-siastic support of the Obama administration, charged envoy Kofi Annan with implementing a six-point peace plan in late March. Mr. Annans mission has become one of the most costly diplomatic failures in U.N. his-tory. It has allowed the Syrian regime to go on slaughtering civilians and pushed the country down the path to a full-scale sec-tarian war. But Mr. Annan per-sists: On Tuesday, he met Mr. Assad to renew feckless appeals. The Obama administration persists, too, in declining to exercise the U.S. leadership that would be required to stop the massacres. For the past two months it hid behind Mr. Annan. Now that his plan has become an embarrassment, it is floating a new idea: a Syrian political transition modeled after that of Yemen, where a strongman was pressured into stepping down. The Yemensky variant is called that because the key to the new White House figment is none other than Vladimir Putin the Russian strongman who has been struggling to squelch his own pro-democracy protesters. According to a report in Sundays New York Times, President Obama hopes to per-suade Mr. Putin in a meeting next month that Russia should press Mr. Assad to step down, leaving in power a successor who could negotiate a democrat-ic transition with the opposition. The odds that Mr. Putin will make this happen are little bet-ter than those for Mr. Annan. Its not likely that the Russian leader wants democracy in Syria, which would lead to the empower-ment of leaders disinclined to maintain the current regimes alliances. Even if Mr. Putin could be persuaded, he probably lacks the means to force out Mr. Assad and his clan. Mr. Obamas apparent faith that Mr. Putin is ready to do business with him is at odds with the strongmans recent behavior including his abrupt cancellation of a planned visit to Camp David. The reality is that the killing in Syria will continue, and the threat to vital U.S. interests across the Middle East will grow, until Mr. Obama stops counting on the likes of Kofi Annan and Vladimir Putin to spare him from the responsibil-ity that should be shouldered by a U.S. president. The longer he waits, the greater the cost in childrens lives, among other things. Typicalleftistcontempt ANOTHER VIEW Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

By BILL KACZOR Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Floridians often overestimate their ability to withstand a hurricane and that puts them in potentially serious danger. Florida State University pro fessor Jay Baker, who has spent almost four decades questioning people about their storm experi ences, said one constant over that span is that too many people believe they are safer than they are. They may think the storm wont hit them, or that it wont be as bad as it turns out. Some who live in floodand surge-prone areas believe their homes are high enough and will be safe. Maybe they just need to be more frightened, said Baker, a behavioral geologist. They need to have more of a gut reaction about what this thing can do to them. Hurricane season begins June 1 and emergency officials, as always, are worried that if a major storm hits that too many people in the evacuation zones will stay put. Baker says the key to improving the evacuation rate is to better inform the public about what will happen in a direct hit. When you ask people Why didnt you leave? the most com mon reason is they didnt think they needed to, Baker said. When Hurricane Charley was threatening the Tampa Bay region in 2004, only about half of the residents heeded orders to evacuate from the most vulner able areas those susceptible to flooding during even a minimal Category 1 hurricane. Charley, though, veered away and made landfall as a Category 4 storm further south, where the evacu ation rate was even lower, Baker said. Surveys show that people who live in the riskiest areas tend to underestimate the danger while people in less hazardous areas overestimate it. In a survey con ducted a few years ago, only 14 percent of Florida residents ques tioned came within five feet of correctly identifying their homes height above sea level. So when they hear the storm surge is going to be, oh, say 15 feet, most people have no idea of the implications of that, Baker said. A majority also dont know their neighborhoods color-coded evacuation zone although most coastal counties have been pub licizing them for decades. The color codes, which differ from county to county, indicate what areas need to be evacuated based on elevation and a storms pre dicted strength. Most counties make maps available showing the zones and they are on county websites. Charlotte County, which took a direct hit from Charley, has placed color-coded evacuation zone markers on stop signs. If residents are unsure of their zones all they have to do is check a nearby intersection to see if an evacuation order applies to their neighborhood. Baker said local officials need to order evacuations earlier most people tend to stay put until local notices are issued even after the National Hurricane Center has declared they are in a watch or warning area. Local officials have more direct effect on how the public responds than just people seeing the forecast information, Baker said. You dont see evacuation numbers going up in large num bers until officials issue evacua tion notices. The Florida Division of Emergency Management this year is targeting residents who arrived after the last major hurricane in 2005 and families with children under the age of 17 because surveys show they are less prepared than childless families, said Julie Roberts, the agencys new external affairs director. Many underestimate the power of storms They need to have more of a gut reaction about what this thing can do to them. Jay Baker Hurricane expert, FSU
By YURI KAGEYAMAAssociated PressFUKUSHIMA, Japan Last years crop sits in storage, deemed unsafe to eat, but Toraaki Ogata is back at his rice paddies, driving his tractor trailing neat rows of seedlings. Hes living up to his familys proud, six-generation history of rice farming, and praying that this time his harvest will not have too much radiation to sell. That conflict is shared by several thousand farmers in more than 7,000 hectares (17,000 acres) of Fukushima, where some of last years harvest exceeded government safety standards because of radiation released when the March 2011 tsunami set off the worlds second-worst nuclear accident. For their rice to be sold, it will have to be tested every grain of it. All I can do is pray there will be no radiation, Ogata, 58, said last week, wiping his sweat during a break in his 1.5-hectare paddy 60 kilometers (35 miles) from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. Its not our fault at all, but the land of our ancestors has been defiled. Rice farming is almost sacred in rural Japan, and the government protects farmers with tight restrictions on imports. Many farmers are too close to the nuclear disaster to return to the fields, but others have gotten the go-ahead, even with the risk their harvests may end up being too radiated to ship. Hopes are high in this major agricultural northeastern prefecture (state) that farmers will meet the unprecedented challenge of producing safe-to-eat rice in contaminated soil. Following orders from the government, they have sprinkled zeolite, a pebblelike material that traps radioactive cesium, and added fertilizer with potassium to help block radiation absorption. That work is part of the 100 billion yen ($1.3 billion) Tokyo has allocated for decontamination efforts this year. There had been no time for that last year. Tens of thousands of bags of rice from that harvest were too radiated to be sold. The government bought those crops, which sit in giant mounds in storage. Rice planting has been banned in the most contaminated areas, but the government allowed it at some farms in areas that produced contaminated rice last year, including Ogatas. After the October harvest, their rice will be run through special machines that can detect the tiniest speck of radiation. Ogata is filled with uncertainty. Though the government recently set up a system to buy and destroy his crop from last year, he has no assurances that it will do so again if this years rice cant be eaten. He also doesnt know which experts to believe. Scientists often come to Fukushima to discuss radiation at neighborhood meetings, but some say there will be no health effects at all, while others say tens of thousands may get sick. Radiation is expected to decline year by year. But Ogata and other farmers acknowledge they are in for a long haul. Japan has a safety limit of radiation exposure at 1 millisievert per year, although some areas in Fukushima measure higher at about 20 millisieverts. A 20-kilometer (12-mile) no-go zone was set around the nuclear plant, displacing some 100,000 people. Right next to the no-go zone, in Minami Soma, 135 farms have been granted special permission to plant rice as an experiment but on the condition that all rice, regardless of radiation levels, will be destroyed. We couldnt even plant last year. We are doing everything we can as a whole town so we will be growing rice next year, said Yukio Nishi, a Minami Soma agricultural cooperative official. The government toughened its restrictions on radiation in rice and other food from April to 100 becquerels a kilogram (2 pounds) from the emergency 500 becquerels set in March last year. The limits are lower for milk, baby food and drinking water. Medical experts say risks from low-dose radiation cant be ruled out, but it may be impossible to prove whether a person got cancer from radiation or something else.Associated PressWASHINGTON Maxed out on the medications is how Bill Ezzell describes his struggle with blood pressure. Its dangerously high even though the North Carolina man swallows six different drugs a day. Hypertension may be the nations sneakiest epidemic, a time bomb thats a leading cause of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure, and one thats growing worse as the population rapidly grows older. Despite an arsenal of drugs, millions of people in the United States cant get their blood pressure down to safe levels. Now, in a highstakes experiment at dozens of hospitals, scientists are testing a dramatically different approach for the toughestto-treat patients, by burning away some overactive nerves deep in the body that can fuel rising blood pressure. To attempt an invasive treatment a catheter is threaded through blood vessels in the groin up to the kidneys reflects doctors frustration with a disease that too often is underrated because people with it dont look or feel sick until a lot of damage has been done. Pharmaceutical therapies have been the cornerstone of medicine for nearly a century, offering convenient, noninvasive treatment for countless diseases. But when it comes to some of the most stubborn chronic conditions, including diabetes, obesity and hypertension, medications too often arent enough. Researchers increasingly are trying medical devices and minimally invasive surgeries to help, such as stomach-shrinking techniques that improve obesity-caused diabetes and the new hypertension experiment. I think we have to hit on all cylinders if were going to take on these very important diseases, said Dr. Steven Nissen, chair of the Cleveland Clinics department of cardiology. There are many examples where this convergence is taking place, where you push the drugs as far as you can, but when they cant go any further, you step in with more invasive approaches. Cardiologists interest in the nerve-zapping procedure also reflects how severe the burden of hypertension is poised to become, with many middle-aged boomers already affected. People are living longer with hypertension, and the disease tends to get worse as you get older, said Dr. Suzanne Oparil, a hypertension specialist at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. The complications pile on later. If deadening kidney nerves sounds like a strange way to attack hypertension, consider that nerves in the bodys fight or flight system play a role in signaling kidney functions, which in turn help regulate blood pressure, such as by relaxing or tightening key arteries. If there was a snake in the room, all of our blood pressures would go up, appropriately so, explained interventional cardiologist Dr. Manesh Patel of Duke University, one of more than 60 medical centers around the country studying Medtronic Inc.s nerve-zapping procedure.

New approach tested for hard-to-treat hypertension Japan farmers plant, pray for radiation-free riceASSOCIATED PRESSMotoharu Tanji of Japan Agricultural Cooperative Association New Fukushima gestures towards bags of rice piled up at a storage facility in Fukushima, northeastern Japan. They are among tens of thousands of bags of rice from last years harvest that exceeded government safety standards because of radiation released when the March 2011 tsunami set off the worlds second-worst nuclear accident and were too radiated to be sold.

By DINESH RAMDEAssociated PressCHILTON, Wis. Lucky, a 7-year-old dairy cow, had been walking with a limp for several weeks when veterinarian Sara Gilbertson was called. Instead of prescribing painkillers, Gilbertson tried an unusual new therapy a chiropractic adjustment that included a full-length spinal massage. Gilbertson rubbed the Holsteins spine by gently squeezing it from neck to tail, pausing to apply firm pressure to one hip and readjust several vertebrae. The cow stood in calm silence, moving only enough to reach another mouthful of hay. Later, as Lucky reclined on a bed of sand, Gilbertson noted with satisfaction how relaxed and comfortable the animal seemed. Cow comfort has become a key concern for the nations farmers, who have known for generations that contented cows give more milk. The traditional techniques for keeping cows happy arent complicated feed them well, keep the temperature comfortable and give them room to move around. But some dairy farmers are turning to a new array of creative options intended to keep cows as mellow and productive as possible. Some farmers have installed waterbeds for their cows to rest on, while others play classical music. And some hire animal chiropractors to give older cows a tuneup and correct minor issues in calves, all part of the effort to ensure maximum milk output. Do the methods really work? Theres no sound scientific data to back up the claims, but dairy farmers say they can see the difference with their own eyes cows are giving more milk, the milk quality is improving and the herds seem to be enjoying the indulgences. Its kind of like how an athlete with a sprained ankle isnt as productive, said Larry Meyer, 36, whose parents own the dairy farm in Chilton, Wis., where Lucky and another 115 dairy cows live. If you can get a cow healthy and back to normal, it makes a difference in their productivity. Cows can suffer injuries if they slip on a slick spot of concrete or get stepped on by another 1,500-pound bovine, and some calves get their necks kinked during the birthing process. The injuries can cause pain when the animals stand, making them reluctant to jostle for food and leading to compensatory injuries. That, in turn, leads to less milk production. Thats why farmers are willing to spend about $75 per session for a chiropractic adjustment. The cows tolerate it incredibly well, said Gilbertson, the veterinarian. They may be apprehensive at first, until they figure out how good it feels. Meyer didnt have specific figures on how much milk Lucky gave following her chiropractic treatments, but because her mother was the most productive cow in the herd, he wanted to make sure Lucky was in good shape. While chiropractic care is reserved for injured cows, dairy farmers also are investing in healthy cows happiness. Richard Conrad installed $70,000 waterbeds on his farm in Grafton, Ohio, about a year ago. It took the 220 dairy cows a few months to adjust to the softer surface but now they seem to enjoy it, he said. They were real skeptical at first because it was real jiggly, said Conrad, 53, but once they adapted they didnt look back. They just jump on and stay there. The result has been milk with fewer impurities and in greater volume cows that used to give about 80 pounds of milk per day now average about 90 pounds, Conrad said. However, he couldnt credit the waterbeds with all the improvement; he also upgraded ventilation in his barns and installed misting technology to keep the herd cool. Dairy farmers commonly adjust air, temperature and lighting to keep cows happy. Some have also installed large rotating brushes that gently scratch the cows backs and massage their faces and shoulders, said Marcia Endres, a University of Minnesota Extension dairy scientist. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx8AHealth Accepting New PatientsMedicare, Blue Cross and most insurance plans accepted, worker compensationSpecializing in adult medical care including: Accepting New Patients SOUTHERN INTERNAL MEDICINEVisit our website at www.SouthernInternalMedicineLC.com386-719-2540Allison B.

Baris, ARNP Stephanie K. Finnell, ARNP Lori Belote, ARNP New Patients New Patients INTERNAL MEDICINE By KEVIN BEGOSAssociated PressPITTSBURGH Imagine a tiny snake robot crawling through your body, helping a surgeon identify diseases and perform operations. Its not science fiction. Scientists and doctors are using the creeping metallic tools to perform surgery on hearts, prostate cancer, and other diseased organs. The snakebots carry tiny cameras, scissors and forceps, and even more advanced sensors are in the works. For now, theyre powered by tethers that humans control. But experts say the day is coming when some robots will roam the body on their own. It wont be very long before we have robots that are nanobots, meaning they will actually be inside the body without tethers, said Dr. Michael Argenziano, the Chief of Adult Cardiac Surgery at New YorkPresbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center in New York. Argenziano was involved with some of the first U.S. Food and Drug Administration clinical trials on robotic heart surgery more than 10 years ago. Now he says snake robots have become a commonly used tool that gives surgeons a whole new perspective. Its like the ability to have little hands inside the patients, as if the surgeon had been shrunken, and was working on the heart valve, he said. But Argenziano and experts in robotics say the new creations work best when theyre designed for very specific tasks. The robot is a tool. It is no different in that sense than a scalpel. Its really a master-slave device, he said. Howie Choset has been researching and building robots, particularly snake robots, at Pittsburghs Carnegie Mellon University for years. Choset believes that his snake robot and others like it help reduce medical costs by making complex surgeries faster and easier. Choset says his new design is smaller and more flexible than earlier models: The diameter of the head is less than the size of a dime. The size of surgical robots allows surgeons to operate with far less damage to the body, helping the patient heal faster. For example, instead of opening the entire chest up during heart surgery, a small incision is made, and the robot crawls inside to the proper spot. Dr. Ashutosh Tewari of Weill Cornell Medical College in New York has used robotic tools to perform thousands of prostate operations. He said the precision of the tiny robotic tool is vital not just to cutting out cancerous tumors, but to seeing exactly what nerves to leave intact. Tewari said hes most excited about the potential for surgical robots to do things humans cant do. He said the variety of sensors available for surgical robots keeps expanding, even as they get smaller. He said they may one day be able to test chemicals or blood in the body, or even the electrical connections in nerves. Argenziano noted that robots arent a magic cure. The robot is good at certain things and its not good at other things, he said. Some studies have found that the cost effectiveness of surgical robots varies greatly. In smaller hospitals, the high cost of purchasing and maintaining a robot may not make sense. Choset has also built larger snake robots designed for search and rescue, or just exploration. They can climb poles or trees and then look around through a camera in the head, and slither through places humans cant reach. We sent our snake robots into these caves off the coast of the Red Sea to look for evidence of ancient Egyptian ships, he said. To me archaeology is like search and rescue, but everyones been dead for 5,000 years, reducing the pressure. Another expert at Carnegie Mellon stresses that theres still an enormous gap between humans and even the most high-tech robots. Manuela Velosa noted that robots have been built that excel at one or two tasks but not at the variety of tasks humans perform without even thinking. Velosa has been building robots that ask humans for help when they dont know what to do, as well as teams of robots that play soccer against each other. Sometimes, the robots surprise her. During one soccer game against robots from another university, the Carnegie Mellon team scored on a particular play. That sent a positive signal to the robots computers, which are designed to reward success and discourage failures in the game. Her robots then tried the play again and scored again. It turned out they had discovered a programing flaw in the other team of robots, just like some sports teams find a flaw in their opponents. In the second half Velosas robots kept using the same play, scoring every time, and thus reinforcing the tendency to try the play over and over. The robots crushed the other team. It was programmed by me, but it looked to me as if they learned, she said. I believe we are much closer to having robots be able to coexist with humans. The beautiful thing is you see the robots learning.

Brinkley receives call from MLB All-StarBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWednesday was just another day for former Columbia High baseball player Tracy Brinkley. That was until he received a call to talk to former World Series Champion and All-Star centerfielder of the Philadelphia Phillies Shane Victorino. Brinkley was winner of a Twitter contest to talk with the major league star and spent Wednesday after-noon speaking with the star about the sport to gather a few words of advice to share with the youth baseball team, Diamond Extreme, Brinkley helps coach. One thing that he shared that I will share with my players is that you cant take a day off, Brinkley said. Every day you take off another player is get-ting better. If you have a dream, you have to go get it. You have to hit the weight room, practice and hit off the tee. Though the phone call was brief, Brinkley enjoyed gathering words of advice from a pro player. I was very excited, Brinkley said. Ive never even been to a MLB game and you have guys that show up hours early to talk to these guys. I just got lucky from Twitter. Brinkley said Victorinos experience growing up was similar to his in Lake City. He said where he came from that baseball always came second in support, Brinkley said. Ill tell my kids it doesnt matter how many people they play in front of, if they play their hardest and play well, peo-ple will start to take notice. If theres one thing that stuck, he told me when it comes down to it, its jsut a game. Youve just got to go play. Oddly enough Brinkley will get to see Victorino play in person during September when he attends his first ever MLB game. Brinkley, an Atlanta Braves fan, plans to attend the September series when the Braves host the Phillies during a key playoff-stretch run. Twitter lands baseball coach with Victorino. Red & Black attack Keen debuts new-look Wolves at spring game Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER Lake City ReporterABOVE : Lake City Middle Schools Terrious Baker scrambles toward the sideline during the Red & Black game on Wednesday.LEFT : Falcons running back Don Robinson breaks a tackle by Deontae Robinson during the Red & Black game on Wednesday. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High head coach Brian Allen was among a group of Tigers coaches that got a peak into the future as the Lake City Middle School Falcons held their annual spring game on Wednesday. The Red & Black game as it was billed split teams into two units to cap off spring practice for the Falcons. New coach Richard Keen was looking for a closely-contested game and the result was just that. The Black came out with a 12-8 win in a game that was dominated mainly on the ground and by the defenses. The Red began the game with the ball and Derontae Jordan ripped off a nine-yard carry on the games first play. After a five-yard run for a first down, Brock Edge intercepted a pass to give the ball to the Black for its first possession. The possession wouldnt last long for the Falcons as Justin Bridges recovered a fumble on the first play to give Red possession back. Bridges was rewarded with the first carry of the drive and rumbled 15 yards down the field. Davin Schuck connected with Nathaniel Maxwell for a six-yard reception on third down to move the chains, but Chase Cervantes inter-cepted the next pass to give the ball back to the Black. After a turnover on downs, the White began to drive the ball for the first scoring possession of the game. Garrett Finnell hit Jeffrey Booher on fourth down to move the Red into scoring position. A 20-yard run by Jordan moved the Red to the one and Bridges capped the drive off with a touchdown run on a fullback dive. Finnell kept the ball on the two-point conversion attempt and gave the Red an 8-0 lead. The Black answered quickly. On the first play of the next series, Don Robinson took the ball and rumbled the distance for a touch-down. The two-point con-version failed to leave the Black down 8-6 at the half. The second half was all Black, however, with Robinson doing the dam-age. On the halfs first play, Robinson found a hole up the middle, cut outside and rushed 80 yards for a touch-down to give the Black a 12-8 lead. The two-point conversion failed. Robinson then recovered a fumble on the Reds fol-lowing possession and returned it for a touchdown, but the ball was ruled down to leave the game at 12-8. Terrious Baker then ripped off a 25-yard run to move Red into scoring position but Robinson again came through with a big play to intercept a pass and LCMS continued on 6B

DEAR ABBY: I am a 70-year-old widower with three grown children. My girlfriend is 53. We dated for several months before she moved in with me. I thought maybe with her living here I might fall in love with her. It has not, and will not, happen. I hate to break her heart, but I know now that I will never ask her to marry me. I intend to remain single for the rest of my life. How do I bring closure to this relationship? What are the words? Im lost because this is a first for me. I was married for 40 years, and I just do not wish to be mar-ried again. How do I tell this nice lady? -IN A BIND IN TEXAS DEAR IN A BIND: Having the woman move in with you hoping you would fall in love with her was a huge mistake, and one you should not repeat. When you say what you need to say, have plenty of tissue handy and expect her to be tearful and angry. Start by saying, We need to talk. Tell her she has done nothing wrong, and it is not a failure on her part, but you realize that you do not wish to remarry. Explain that feel-ing as you do, it would be best if she moved. Offer to help her find a place if she has nowhere to go. You will be doing both of you a favor by being upfront NOW. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a young, recently married woman. My husband and I are at the point where were thinking about having kids. My brother married a close friend of mine not long after my wedding. My sister-in-law has a medical condition that may prevent her from having children. I am very close to my brother and his wife, and I can see the writing on the wall. She brought up sur-rogacy once in passing, as a possible alternative if she cant have kids. If Im asked to be the surrogate, what advice do you have? I would be more than willing to consider it, but only after my husband and I have had our own children. Would it be selfish of me to also expect some compensation for my time and the toll it will take on my body? I want to be ready if and when Im asked. What would be the best way to explain my reasoning to her? -BACKUP MOM IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR BACKUP MOM: You are an intelligent woman and you are asking good questions. You should explain your thinking to your sister-in-law as you have addressed them in your letter. It would be wise to consult an attorney who specializes in adoption/sur-rogacy to learn about the laws and procedures that apply in your state. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am an adult male with a longtime problem. Whether its a sad or happy occasion, I start crying, sometimes sobbing. I try to avoid any situation that may cause this. I am at a new point in my life where I can no longer avoid these situa-tions. People think its not normal. Please dont sug-gest I live with it. Is there a magic pill to control this? -BIG CRYBABY IN BROOKLYN, N.Y. DEAR CRYBABY: There is no pill that can help you control those emotions that I know of. And because it is causing you problems, I do not recommend you live with it. I do think, however, that if you discuss with a therapist what it is about sad and happy occasions that causes such an extreme reaction that you could get quickly to the bottom of it and learn to better control those emotions. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Relax and enjoy the moment. Love is high-lighted, and spending time with someone special or with a group of friends will do you good. The ideas you come up with now will open all sorts of opportuni-ties in the not-too-distant future. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Clear up unfinished work or business. You may want to take aggressive action with regard to a job, interview or promotion, but consider just doing the best job possible without being splashy. Its results that count. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It will be hard to walk away from something you enjoy. Your personal life is looking good, but if you choose jealousy and anger over passion and pleasure, you will end up alone. Whether you are single or in a relationship, strive to get along. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotions will be diffi-cult to control. Dont let lit-tle things bother you to the point that you damage a relationship with someone special. Responsibilities are not necessarily a bad thing. Rewards will be offered for your kindness. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do what you can to help others. A chance to make a difference for a cause you believe in is likely, if you are proactive. Love is high-lighted, and a good rela-tionship will help stabilize your life. A change in life-style is apparent. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Refusing to do a poor job or to cut corners will give you an edge. Stick to your game plan, be true to you and keep your standards high. Common sense and practical appli-cation will be your saving grace. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel, adventure and new friends will lead to fun. Dont sit at home or give in to someone who doesnt want to participate. Follow your heart and do what makes you happy. A change is heading your way. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Its OK to be nice, but you dont have to pay for others. When it comes to your financial situation, you must protect your assets. Collect old debts and you will feel better. Turn your home into a cre-ative space. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youll attract attention. The more involved you are in an interest you have, the broader your circle of friends will become. Someone may feel threat-ened or jealous of your fun-loving attitude. Make sure you dont exclude anyone. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Dont miss an opportunity. Jump at any chance to mingle with people who share your interests or have similar goals. Opportunity knocks, so be ready to open the door. A deal, settlement or contract will lead to extra cash. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Everything is looking up. Money is head-ing your way. Reunite with people from your past. Do whats right when dealing with business partners, lovers or friends. A con-tract, settlement or legal matter will end in your favor. Pursue your inter-ests. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do your best, but dont relent to someone trying to control you. Take one step at a time and back away from any aggressor. Take responsibility for your actions and stand up for your rights. Dont be a chameleon. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Military Trail, Suite 300Boca Raton, FL33431Telephone: 561-241-6901Fax: 561-241-918102500210May 24, 31, 2012 REQUESTFORCOMMENTS En-vironmental Assessment, County Line Wildfire Salvage and Restora-tion. District Ranger Ivan Green re-quests comments on the proposed project listed above. We have com-pleted the Environmental Assess-ment (EA) to consider salvage and restoration activities on the Osceola National Forest (OSC) following the April 2012 County Line Wildfire. The U.S. Forest Service proposes to conduct salvage operations in ap-proximately 3,600 acres to remove dead and dying timber left by the County Line Fire. All of the stands are slash pine plantations of varying ages. About 1,656 acres of non-mer-chantable, severely burned timber would be removed, followed by re-planting with longleaf pine. About 711 acres of older pine plantation would be selectively thinned to re-move damaged trees and sold as im-mature sawtimber. About 1,215 acres of young slash pine would be clear-cut, sold as pulpwood, followed by replanting with longleaf pine. Mer-chantable timber would be harvested through advertised sales for an esti-mated volume of about 21,000 CCF. These harvests would occur in fire-damaged sites. The purpose for this action is to remove hazardous fire fuel loads, reduce the risks of insects and disease in adjacent healthy tim-ber, and to restore the area back to native longleaf pine. The project area occurs in the northern area of the Os-ceola National Forest (OSC), includ-ing the Pinhook Purchase Unit and newly-acquired lands to the west of Pinhook Swamp, approximately 12 miles north of Lake City, Florida. Due to the nature of post-wildfire re-storation needs, the District Ranger has determined that the use of 36 CFR Part 218 regulations will pro-vide the most effective timing for public comment. These regulations provide a predecisional administra-tive review (30-day objection period) authorized by the Healthy Forest Re-storation Act of 2003. In accordance with 36 CFR 218, individuals and or-ganizations wishing to be eligible to file an objection must supply written comments during the opportunity for public comment; this constitutes the objection period. Comments received in response to this solicitation, in-cluding names and addresses of those who comment, will be consid-ered part of the public record on this proposed action and will be available for public inspection. Written com-ments on this proposal should be sent to: Ivan Green, Osceola National Forest, 24874 US Hwy 90, Sander-son, FL32087. Hand-delivered com-ments must be received within our normal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Friday, excluding federal holidays. Com-ments may also be mailed electroni-cally in a common digital format to our office at email@example.com. Comments must be submitted within a 30-day period starting from the day after this notice is published. Please include: title of the Proposed Action and supported reasons that the Responsible Official Legalshould consider in reaching a deci-sion. 36 CFR 218 regulations pre-clude the opportunity to appeal after the objection period has ended.

A short time later, 2009 champion Roger Federer joined them, earning his record-breaking 234th vic tory at Grand Slam tourna ments. Djokovic was first up on Court Suzanne Lenglen, and he was barely troubled by Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia, win ning 6-0, 6-4, 6-4 for his 23rd straight Grand Slam victory. I gave him the oppor tunity to come back to the match after a perfect first set, first seven games, Djokovic said. But, look, this is tennis. Federer had an easy run in the first two sets, but wasted two match points in the third. He saved all six break points to beat Adrian Ungur of Romania 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (6), 6-3 on Court Philippe Chatrier. The 16-time Grand Slam champion broke a tie with Jimmy Connors for most career wins at major tour naments in the Open era, which began in 1968. He is now 234-35 in tennis top four tournaments, an .870 winning percentage. In the main stadium at Roland Garros, Azarenka defeated Dinah Pfizenmaier of Germany 6-1, 6-1 two days after struggling to win her opening match. Being No. 1 is a diffi cult job, because everybody want to catch you, every body want to move you from the spot, Azarenka said. Nothing is going to come easy just because youre No. 1. You actually have more people ... moti vated trying to beat you. Later Wednesday, No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland was to face Venus Williams. Djokovic is looking to win his fourth straight Grand Slam title, and first at Roland Garros. Last year, the Serb lost to Federer in the semifinals, ending his 43-match winning streak. On Wednesday, Djokovic was broken once by Kavcic, but otherwise had little trou ble. He did, however, finish the match with 34 unforced errors, almost twice as many as Kavcics 21. He was defending really well in the second and third set, especially in the sec ond, Djokovic said. He wasnt missing as many balls as in the first set. No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro beat Edouard RogerVasselin of France 6-7 (5), 7-6 (3), 6-4, 6-4.

A turnover gave Red one more chance late in the game and Jordan set up a potential scoring drive with a couple of nice runs into the Falcons territory. The Red would come up short, however, as a fourth-down attempt failed to give the Black a 12-8 win. It was a good com petitive game, Keen said. The backs were running hard and the offensive line opened up some good holes. The defense was running to the ball well and thats a good thing. All in all, it was a very success ful spring.
