BOX jbox@lakecityreporter.com McALPIN-What looked like a goodsized sinkhole in McAlpin may not have been. The depression, more than 20 feet in diameter and of an undetermined depth, opened on private land bordering 216th Street Tuesday not far from the Columbia County line. However, appearances may have been deceiving. Planted pines had recently been harvested from the field in which the depression occurred, officials said, and the stumps had been buried in a hole and covered in sand. Beryls recent down pour caused the hole to collapse. I really dont think it was a true sink hole, said Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron. I believe that they cov ered stumps and when it rained, the sand lowered. This hole is 100 feet from the road and has been filled by the owner of the property. Once filled, there should be no prob lems, said Randy Harris, Suwannee County Public Works director. Meanwhile, a true sinkhole did open up in Suwannee County Tuesday. This one, on 208th Street in McAlpin, was 12 feet long, 8 feet wide and 6 feet deep. It too has been filled in and, it is hoped, will cause no more problems. When is a sinkhole not a sinkhole? JOHN DAVIS/ Special to the Reporter What appeared to be a sinkhole opened up on 216th Road in McAlpin Tuesday. In reality the depression may have been a burial pit for tree stumps, which collapsed after heavy rains from Tropical Storm Beryl over the Memorial Day weekend. By HANNAH O. BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com Supervisor of Elections Elizabeth Horne has scheduled a press conference to discuss poll ing locations for the 2012 election, happening this morning. Hornes pro posed plan for polling locations was met with dis approval from county and city officials as well as rep resentatives of the NAACP. The plan eliminated all polling locations within the city limits of Lake City except for the Supervisor of Elections office. The office would serve as the single polling location for all residents within the city. Horne will discuss the plan Friday at 10 a.m. at the Supervisor of Elections Office. The press con ference was announced Thursday afternoon. Polling place plan will get public airing Horne Governor to visit Gov. Rick Scott will be in Lake City Tuesday for a meeting with members of the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, the Lake City Reporter has learned. Further details were unavailable at press time. Scott is seen here during a 2010 trip to Lake City. FILE By HANNAH O. BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com A code enforcement dispute ended in the reinterpreta tion of a Florida building code for Christina Harper, owner of Mochi Frozen Yogurt. Harper approached city council members on May 21, say ing the number of seats allotted in her establishment were inconsistent with the plans of Mochis around the state. Growth Management Director Larry Lee spoke to Harper about her business days prior and informed her that only 10 seats were allowed in the building because only one restroom was available for the public. Larry Lee was absolutely correct in everything that he was doing on the codes, City Manager Wendell Johnson said. Johnson said he spoke with Harpers architect last week. The architect filed an affidavit to allow more seats in the establishment. Harper said the code for the business could be inter preted in more than one way. Its interpretation, Harper said. Its subjective. Johnson met with Harper and Lee about the issue last week. We squared it away. Were good to go, shes good to go, Johnson said. Bottom line is everybody is happy. Harper said the business is now allowed 42 seats for public use.

AROUND FLORIDA DELTONA A central Florida family is grateful after a 22-year-old sheriffs deputy saved a 1-year-old boy who had fallen into a backyard swimming pool. The family of William Timmons says the boy had turned blue and wasnt breathing when Volusia County Sheriffs deputy Cody Cochran arrived at their home on May 25. Authorities say the boy fell into the swimming pool during a Memorial Day weekend gathering. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Cochran performed CPR on the boy for about 30 seconds before hearing a moan. He then turned the boy on his side and patted his back. Grandmother Evelyn Parker says the boy was given a clean bill of health by his doctor on Wednesday. Cochran has only been with the sheriffs office for six months.

Experts on facial recon struction say Poppo faces a lengthy recovery, includ ing months of treatment to rebuild his features. He remains hospitalized.

And so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 NIV JERUSALEM Pop music star Madonna treated tens of thousands of ecstatic fans in Israel to the inaugural show of her MDNA world tour on Thursday, performing in a country where she has long claimed a special bond. The Material Girl, a devotee of a form of Jewish mysticism known as Kabbalah, danced, bumped, grinded and vogued in flashy costumes to a raucous crowd at Ramat Gan stadium near Tel Aviv. Madonna emerged on stage in a confessional, breaking through its glass window using a rifle, which she then aimed at the audience. She wore a skin-tight black outfit to sing her first song, Girl Gone Wild, accompanied by dancers dressed as monks. She went on to sing Give Me All Your Luvin and a mash-up of the clas sic Express Yourself and Lady Gagas Born This Way, dressed as a march ing band conductor. While some artists have opted to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians, the 53-year-old Madonnas ties to the Jewish state have only strengthened in the last few years. She has made personal pilgrimages in 2004 and 2007 along with other Kabbalah devotees. She wrapped up her 2008-2009 Sticky and Sweet tour with two shows in the Holy Land, her first in 16 years. During that show, she wrapped herself in an Israeli flag and called Israel the energy center of the world. Madonna, who is not Jewish, has been dabbling in Kabbalah for more than a decade and has taken on a Hebrew name, Esther. On previous trips to Israel she went to the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem, the holiest site where Jews can pray, and visited the grave of a revered Jewish sage. Her passion for Kabbalah has sparked criti cism in Israel, where some rabbis chide her for ven turing into religious study usually reserved for those with a strong background in Jewish law. She landed in Israel last week, arriving with her children, her boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat and a 70person entourage. She spent the days leading up to the performance rehearsing for the glitzy show and visiting Kabbalah centers. Newton wins restraining order LAS VEGAS A judge granted Wayne Newton a restraining order against his landlord Thursday amid stalled plans to turn his lavish Las Vegas estate into a celebrity museum a project that has sparked allegations of fraud, mis management, animal abuse and sexual harassment. Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez ruled that devel oper Steve Kennedy must stay 50 feet away from the Newton family and their home, effectively putting the brakes on construction to turn Newtons Casa de Shenandoah estate into a tourist attraction. Kennedy, the manager of CSD LLC, filed a lawsuit two weeks ago claiming the Newton family was unwilling to move out of the house so it could be converted into a museum. The Newtons filed coun terclaims alleging breach of contract and fraud. The legal wrangling paints an uncertain future for Newtons 40-acre estate featuring South African penguins, Arabian horses, celebrity memorabilia and 17th-century antiques imported from European castles. Newton told reporters after Thursdays hearing that he regretted enter ing into the deal with Kennedy. Totally, Newton said. I dont like vultures. Newton lives in the main house on the estate with his wife and their young daughter. Kennedy pur chased the property for $20 million with the intent of building the Newtons a new $2 million home on the estate and converting the gold-trimmed main house into a public venue. In his lawsuit, Kennedy alleged the Newtons unreasonably delayed the project by refusing to pick a location for their new home. The Newtons coun tered that Kennedy failed to obtain proper construc tion permits and did not act in good faith. Emmys to include acting awards LOS ANGELES The Emmy Awards competi tion will be getting fiercer among TV movie and mini series performers.

The program encourages kids to walk or bicycle to school.” The project will include building new sidewalks on the west side of SE Ermine Avenue from north of Southeast Brown Street to East Duval Street and on the south side of Southeast Putnam Street between Southeast Avalon and Southeast Ermine Avenues. Crosswalks at the intersection of Southeast Avalon Avenue and Southeast Brown Street and at Southeast Putnam Street and at intersections of the east and west side of Southeast Ermine Avenue from Southeast Baya Drive to East Duval Street will also be painted. School zone signs will be replaced and flashing lights will be included along Southeast Ermine Avenue and Southeast Putnam Street at multi-ple locations around the school. Two new electronic signs indicating “No Right Turn” and “Right Turn Only” will be added and the signs will display their messages dur-ing school drop off and pick up times. Busscher said resurfacing and restriping work will also be included in the project, to identify loading and unloading zones. The Lake City Public Works Department is scheduled to repave Southeast Ermine Avenue from Southeast Putnam Street to East Duval Street at the same time as the section from Southeast Putnam to Baya Drive is resurfaced and restriped by DOT. “We’re repaving from Baya Drive to Putnam Street and the city will repave from Putnam Street to Duval Street,” Busscher said. “We’re going to coor-dinate it so that it’s done at the same time.” Busscher said Safe Routes To School pro-gram funding was used at Niblack Elementary School years ago as well as at Westside Elementary and could potentially be used to make improve-ment at other local schools. “We have had a proposal at the traffic safety team meeting to get a new side-walk in front of Summers Elementary School to the Southside Recreation Department,” she said. “The DOT doesn’t have that one scheduled, but we are looking into it.” SAFER: Improvements Continued From Page 1A LIVE OAK The inaugural Hope Notes Silent Auction held at the Suwannee River Jam last month raised $10,190 to help band students in Columbia and Suwannee counties and White Springs After School Program. Part of the money also went to help fund the Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camp held four times each year at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, home of the Suwannee River Jam. “I felt we needed to give back to the community,” said SOSMP Marketing Director Teena Peavey May 15 when recipients, donors, volun-teers and SOSMP staff including CEO/President James Cornett and SOSMP General Manager Darrell Brooks gathered at the SOSMP Grande Hall to celebrate the success of the Hope Notes Silent Auction. Peavey thanked Tammy and Mike Brown for coordinating the volunteers. She also thanked First Street Music and Sound Company of Lake City for it’s significant involvement in the auctio n. Peavey said more than 60 items including ceiling fans, trips, furniture, gift certificates, purs es and musical instruments were donated this first year of fund-raising. Band volunteers ran the silent auction, said Peavey, who noted that next year’s donated items are already coming in. Peavey said next year, her goal is $15,000 for the silent auction. “I feel any thing we can do to help the band programs we should do,” said Peavey, a former band student herself. “This is an annual commitment by the SOSMP during the Suwannee River Jam to help our children. This was a lot of work to collect all the donated items and oversee the auction, but well worth it to help our kids.” Checks were awarded based upon the number of volunteers each school provided during the silent auction. All of the money raised went to the band programs. Receiving checks were: White Springs After School Program, Lake City Middle School, Fort White High School, Richardson Middle School, Columbia High School, Suwannee Middle School, Suwannee High School, Branford High School and Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camp. Auction at Jam raises $10K for area band kids By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comAfter years of negotiations, Columbia County, with contributions from Lake City, will pay a shortfall to Target Distribution Center in com-pliance with a tax incentive agree-ment formed in 2006. According to County Manager Dale Williams, Target added a sig-nificant amount of equipment after opening its doors, which increased the company’s taxes. At the start of the agreement, the city agreed to weigh in on the tax incentive agreement by contrib-uting a fixed amount of $350,000 a year for five years. Because Target’s taxes exceeded the initially agreed upon amount, the city has now agreed to add a sixth year to agreement in which it will make up for the shortfall. Contributions from the city were directed through the county, deposited in the county’s econom-ic development fund, because the city was not able to legally provide a rebate to the corporation. “They don’t rebate the actual taxes because they don’t have the legal authority to do that,” Williams said of the city’s contribution. Initial agreements for the tax incentive were initiated by former Economic Development Director Jim Poole. The arrival of the Target Distribution Center to Columbia County was a major undertaking for the area at the time. “It was a home run in the world of economic development,” City Manager Wendell Johnson said. In the initial agreement, the county offered a 10-year tax rebate and the city agreed to contribute an annual incentive payment of $350,000 a year for five years. According to a 2010 report from Johnson, the city’s five-year incen-tive to Target “was facilitated with some misunderstanding.” County Attorney Marlin Feagle said a Florida statute concern-ing economic development in each county states that voters can approve a referendum for a tax incentive program that would result in tax exemption for an eli-gible business. “It wasn’t realized at the time that the city had not gone through the referendum procedure,” Feagle said. Johnson passed a resolution that clarified the role of the city in the transaction. “I have to look at the spirit of what we were trying to do,” Johnson said. The agreement presented at the county commission meeting on May 17 will serve to solidify the transactions among all three par-ties. The agreement will state that the city will pay the shortfall of its agreed upon contribution to cover the tax incentive. The amount, which will be no more than $350,000, will be paid to Target in the sixth year of the contract.The city is currently in its third year of the incentive schedule. The county, which originally agreed to a 10-year rebate, changed the agreement to an abatement in 2011, which allows Target to be exempt from paying county taxes. Target tax deal finally formalized GEORGE PEAVEY/ Special to the ReporterThe Columbia High School band’s check was pre-sented to band director Ryan M.

GARY FINEOUT,Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — Florida’s contentious push to remove ineligible voters from rolls hit addi-tional hurdles when state officials were forced to acknowledge that they may not be able to double-check whether or not as many 182,000 registered voters are U.S. citizens. State officials earlier this month announced that they planned to use a federal immi-gration database that tracks people who are visiting or working in the country to verify the citizenship status of thousands of voters. The state made the announcement after local election supervisors across the state complained that an initial list sent to them contained errors and had not been properly checked ahead of time. But Secretary of State Kent Detzner in a letter sent Thursday to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said the state still cannot gain access to the database and he asked Secretary Janet Napolitano to help. “I hope you will understand the importance of making sure the vote of an eligible voter is not dimin-ished by the vote of ineli-gible voter and provide my department the access it needs,” Detzner wrote. A Department of Homeland Security offi-cial said Thursday that the federal agency is aware of Florida’s request but that there a “number of legal and operational challenges” to granting the state access. Detzner in his letter said that while Florida’s initial list was “credible and reli-able” he acknowledged that his department’s abil-ity to “validate a person’s legal status as up to date was limited.” A spokesman for Detzner said despite the obstacles, Florida will continue to push supervisors to screen the rolls and remove inel-igible voters. Chris Cate said the state is likely to circulate additional names to election supervisors in the weeks ahead. This latest exchange comes as the clamor over the state’s efforts contin-ues to grow louder. Six Democratic members of Congress as well as voting rights groups have called on the state to stop the purge, contending it violates federal voting laws, including one that says vot-ers cannot be removed 90 days before a federal elec-tion. Florida’s primary is Aug. 14. The state’s push is also drawing national media atten-tion since Florida is likely to be a swing state that could decide the 2012 presiden-tial election. This past week, a World War II veteran at a press conference by two Democratic members of Congress pointed out that he was on the state’s initial purge list. Some election supervisors are already saying now that they will ignore any additional names given to them by the Florida Department of State. “It’s illegal under federal law and I’m going to follow the law,” said Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho. Florida last year, at the urging of Gov. Rick Scott, began comparing driver’s licenses with voter registration information to come up with the initial list of 182,000 voters. But the names were not given out last year because then-Secretary of State Kurt Browning wanted to try to verify the information before circulating it to local election officials. The state began asking for access to the federal immigration database last September but has been unable to gain permission.

B arack Obama claims he knows more about Judaism than any other president. Despite this boast, Republican challenger Mitt Romney is on track to get the largest proportion of Jewish votes of any Republican since Ronald Reagan. During a meeting Tuesday with leaders of the Jewish Conservative movement, Mr. Obama said he had been read-ing up on the religion and further based his claim on the fact that he had a lot of Jewish friends in Chicago. Of course, he also was close friends with his pro-Hamas pastor Jeremiah Wright and domestic terrorist William Ayers, but why muddy the narrative with facts? Mr. Obama complained that top Republican leaders are never questioned about their com-mitment to Israel, but this is because they have been consis-tently strong supporters of the Jewish state, unlike the current administration. The recent spate of Jewishthemed White House events is a response to some troubling poll numbers. A survey released last month by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) showed Mr. Obama’s support in the Jewish community while above the national average is softening and is far below the level enjoyed by Democratic predecessor Bill Clinton. Mr. Obama has less support from Jews than any Democrat in recent political memory. Sixty-two percent said they would vote for Mr. Obama in the 2012 presidential race versus 30 percent for a Republican. This is notably lower than the 77 percent support Mr. Obama received in 2008 and below Jewish vote percentages for John F. Kerry in 2004 and Al Gore in 2000. Jewish Republicans are fewer in number and approach politics differently from their Democratic co-religionists. They rate support for Israel (37 per-cent) and religious observance (24 percent) as the qualities most important to their identity, in contrast with Democrats who place commitment to social equality first (54 percent), with Israel and observance down the list at 15 percent. Political conservatives are more likely to attend synagogues, which tracks the trend in the general popula-tion that the more religiously observant are less likely to support Mr. Obama. Likewise, Jews and non-Jews who are concerned about Israel give Mr. Obama much lower marks. As with the general population, the economy is the No. 1 issue among Jewish voters. The PRRI study showed that Mr. Obama’s “most important failures” have been inability to improve economic conditions, not providing strong leadership and increasing government spending. When asked generally about the Obama administra-tion, 35 percent said they were excited or satisfied, while 59 per-cent were disappointed, worried or angry. Most worrisome is that many Jews seem to be giving up on the very idea of America. Forty-five percent said they thought the American dream of better-ing oneself no longer held true, while an additional 10 percent said it never did. Just 19 percent think their children will be bet-ter off financially than they are. The Romney campaign slogan, “Believe in America,” is aimed directly at these types of disen-chanted voters. ONE OPINION B ad things that hap-pened in the past can continue to give us pain and sadness, seriously damage our present enjoyment of life, and linger way into our future to interfere with our happiness, health, and well-being. Bad events happen, like the loss of someone we love, hurtful things others have done to us, or regrets that we have from mis-takes we’ve made or bad things we’ve done. The bad feelings can last way longer than the events that caused them. These can be grief, frustration, pain, anger, sadness, depression, or other. Wouldn’t it be great to drop the negative feelings, and be free to feel all the good feel-ings life has to offer us? Research in psychology suggests that pain is a physiological and psychological response to events or behaviors, and that it serves the purpose of warning us that something is wrong. To fix it, we need to face the problem and do something to resolve the situation or the pain. If we don’t, negative feelings could even last a lifetime. These negative feelings could cloud the rest of our days. They can interfere with our happi-ness, stress level, the way we deal with future problems, our health, and our entire life. To make the most of the life we’ve been given, we need to adjust the way we think about the events or behaviors that caused the problem in the first place. If we are grieving, we can take the time we need to go through the grieving process, and know that eventually the pain will recede—even though it may never go away entirely. If some-one has hurt us, we may have avoided dealing with it, ignored the pain, and held onto those feelings of pain, anger, or ven-geance. If we were mean, hurt-ful, or caused another to feel bad, we may be hanging onto feelings of guilt or regret. Why hold onto bad feelings? Instead, you can take some action to make life better, for you and those around you. What can I do? I won’t promise it will be easy, but here are some steps you may find help-ful: n Decide to fix whatever is causing the bad feelings. Whatever happened, it’s okay to heal and feel better. You have a right to have a good life. n Deal with the issue. What caused the bad feelings? It will usually help to talk about this with someone close to you. n Get professional help if you need it. There are counselors or groups whose purpose is to help with problems life hands us. n Is the problem something you can fix? Take stock of your skills, talents, knowledge, and capabilities. If you can, decide what’s the right thing to do. Do it. n If you can’t fix the actual problem, you can still resolve your feelings about it, by changing your thinking about the situation and your actions in dealing with it. n How can you redefine the problem into a positive state-ment? n Try to find the good in whatever happens in your life. Some positive ways of think-ing: “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” “I’m so thankful I had that person I loved in my life. I’ll remem-ber the good times.” “I was thoughtless, mean, said or did hurtful things. I’ll work to repair the relationship and make things right.” “It was a terrible thing that happened to me, but I need to make the most of what I’ve got left to work with.” “I’ll forgive the person I think offended me, and let it go. Maybe both of us can move on with our lives.” “I did the best I could at the time, with who I was then. Hopefully I’ve learned and grown from the experi-ence.” Remember those you’ve lost with a smile. Forgive others, and forgive yourself. Turn to the next page in your life.

Turn the page LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CSX blows their horn excessively for a private convenience crossing between Frontier Drive and Lower Mill Road. There is no Federal law or Florida statute that requires horn blowing for this type crossing. A CSX representative informed me they would blow their horn anytime they desire. Their desires have become longer and more excessive since I have contacted them. Consistently they continue to blow their horn even after the engine has traversed the cross-ing. CSX has not replied to my registered letter that I mailed to them on March 14, 2012 stating that I would pay $400 for signs to be constructed at each entrance stating that the “Trains no longer blow at this crossing.” I also offered to pay $1000.00 for an interlock to be placed on the 70-inch tall chain link remote controlled gates to prevent them from opening if a train is approaching. This appears to me to make the crossing much safer than blowing a horn. The horn could still be blown if something is on the tracks. Visibility is good for a long distance in both directions. In reviewing county tax records for CSX, they paid a paltry sun of $55,517.96 dollars last year for county taxes. Remember CSX owns a long piece of land over 100 ft. wide across the entire county. Their property has to be hundreds of acres. This dollar sum is much less than the sum of the residents of Frontier Drive pay and they get their sleep inter-rupted an average of four times per night at no additional cost. CSX should be being taxed to help pay for bringing the county up to standards and building viaducts so there is no necessity for their train horns to blow.James McGriffLake City We should increase taxes for CSX 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.

These enlightened few hector ordi-nary Americans into sacri-ficing their functional light bulbs, toilets and sport utility vehicles so the planet can be preserved. According to them, failure to give up these luxuries will overheat the globe and provoke devastating floods and hurricanes. The peddlers of such apocalyptic tales rarely practice aus-terity themselves. Earlier this month, Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, asked Michael J. Ahearn, chair-man of the board for First Solar Inc., to come and testify before a congressional over-sight panel about his solar-panel business. Sun power is hailed by the left as the solution to the world’s energy needs. That’s why the Obama administration showered First Solar with $1.5 billion in tax-payer-backed gifts, recogniz-ing the firm’s unquestioned eco-correctness. An impious Mr. Issa, however, couldn’t help but inquire about how Mr. Ahearn made the journey from Tempe, Ariz., to Washington. “I flew in yesterday on a Challenger,” he explained. “A 300,” referring to the model. According to data from Bombardier, the manufacturer of the $20 million luxury jet, the round trip would have produced about 21.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide. That’s equal to five years’ worth of per-person emissions from the average household, by the Environmental Protection Agency’s reckoning. It’s hard to avoid the obvious conclusion that govern-ment envoys and renewable-energy hucksters don’t really credit their own claims.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, June 1-2, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V I am asked quite frequently what I believe about certain scriptures and doctrines. So I felt led to put some of my beliefs in print; and hopeful ly, it will encourage some to look closer at their beliefs. I believe that as Genesis 1:1 states In the beginning God If I do not believe this, then all is lost. If one cannot accept in the beginning God is to say God is a liar, is to say Jesus is a liar and an imposter, and all is lost. I believe in the begin ning God created the heavens and earth. Three creative acts are recorded in Genesis 1: 1. The heavens and earth (this refers to dateless past). 2. Animal life. 3. Human life. Man as we know it, is just over 6,000 years old. I believe that God spoke the world into existence; that Genesis 3:15 is the first promise of the coming Savior; that Genesis 3:21 is the first shedding of blood, to clothe Adam and Eve, is the picture of Christs blood to cover our sins; that Genesis 6 states that the sons of God (fallen angels) came to the daughters of men and bore children. They were evil giants. The human race, except for Noah and his fam ily were evil; so God, who hates sin, destroyed man by way of the flood. Only eight people sur vived the flood. I believe in Genesis 19, how God dealth with the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, proves that he hates homosexuality. I believe Genesis 21, where we find in the birth of Isaac the birth of the nation of Israel, Gods chosen people. I believe God gave Israel the land from the Sinai Peninsula over to the river Euphrates into Bagdad and up to the tip of Turkey over to the Mediterranean Sea. And they will have it all someday. In that they are Gods chose people, no earthly force can stand against them. I believe that in Genesis 22, when Abraham offered up his son Isaac, the word worship is mentioned for the first time. And it proves if we truly worship God, it will cost us something. We ought to look at the journey of the children of Israel in the wilder ness to see how God hates sin. We are told at least twice in the New Testament that all things that happened to them should be an example for us. I believe that one should study the Old Testament equally as much as the New Testament, for in most every page you find a picture of Jesus; sometimes faintly, but always there. I believe that as God closed out the Old Testament, He teaches us in Malachi the impor tance of the tithe. Chapter 3 of Malachi records one of the few places where one can test God. He says Bring all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be food in My house, and try Me in this, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. Jesus confirmed in Matthew 23:23 tith ing is also for the New Testament Christians. Hugh G. Sherrill, an ordained minister and Bible teacher at Eastside Baptist Church, is avail able for revivals. N obody is good at everything. Arent you glad? Observation of human nature might even allow us to sup pose the better a person is at some things, the fewer those things are. Overall, this is likely because in order to truly excel in an area, time and com mitment to that one area will be essential, allowing minimal experience in other areas. Following a counseling session recently, someone several years older than I commented that it was a shame to seek help from a younger person. I disagree. In fact, I was certain our roles would be reversed concern ing most any other topic than the one we were discussing. It occurs to me that we often assume age, education, and/or experience automatically equips a person to be ready for any thing, but that is not the case. While all three of those cer tainly equip us for some things, we often require the experience and knowledge of others in order to succeed. It is a wise person who is willing to accept and incorporate this truth in their life. This week we find Nehemiah and many of Jerusalems resi dents rolling up their sleeves and beginning the good work of rebuilding the wall. In fact, Chapter 3 is a tribute to the col lective nature of this worka task not achievable by any per son working alone. Forty-two different sections of the wall and its gates are mentioned, and described by Nehemiah in a counter-clockwise direc tion. As you read the names of those working on each section, note that Nehemiahs name is conspicuously absent. As the overseer, his job was to move from one section to the other, encouraging and guiding each group to see that the work con tinued. He often is credited as the one who rebuilt the wall, but in this chapter, his own words testify to a much differ ent scenario. Although God burdened his heart with the task, Nehemiah depended on the skill and labor of many oth ers to see it through. After listing each gate, and those involved in the repairs, we find that each priest was responsible to repair the wall in front of his own house. This was an excellent approach on Nehemiahs part to ensure suc cess. Appointing each man to be responsible for his section of the wall would guarantee that the wall would not only be repaired quickly, but properly as well, since this work would stand as protection for his fam ily. Likewise, if the wall were attacked while they were work ing, no one would fight more vigorously than a man defend ing his family in close proxim ity. By blending self-interest with the groups objectives, Nehemiah capitalized on the strength of everyone present. What a great example to us as we approach any task: be will ing to seek wisdom and accept help from others in order to succeed Because Every Heart Matters, Angie Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, Director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads mar riage and family conferences and offers biblical counseling to indi viduals, couples and families.

Lake City Reporter CurrentS Magazine I n his application sec tion of Ephesians, Paul tells the church members in Ephesus that they are to be imitators of God (5:1). Paul does not leave them wonder ing what he means when he says that they are to be imitators of God. He says that they are to be as beloved children and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offer ing and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma (5:1, 2). So what does all this mean? Can we really do what Paul instructed these people to do? Lets begin by saying that anything which Paul was instructed by God to tell people is something which God believes that we can do. When we hear someone say that there is no way that we can imitate God, then we are saying that Paul was wrong by giving these people (and us) this command. Instead of saying, we cannot maybe we need to say, How can we? Children are great examples of how to imitate people. They can imitate their parents, their friends, their favorite musician or TV actor. They study these people and practice the way they walk and talk. They spend hours looking at how they are dressed and how they style their hair. Could it be possible that the reason we think we cannot be imitators of God is because we have not spent enough time studying His actions or the way He looks? Paul also told the Ephesians that they were to walk in love. The word walk has the idea of liv ing our daily lives, our daily conduct. Paul says that our everyday living should be done in love. The word love here can be defined as doing for oth ers what is best for them regardless of the effect it has upon me. Paul uses Christ as the example that we are to follow in expressing our love. Again Paul expects us to be imi tating someone. Paul says there are two things Christ did that we should replicate; the love He had for you and how he sacrificed Himself to God. If we are going to know the love that Jesus had for you, then we of necessity must know the things which He did. We need to spend time study ing His actions. We need to meditate on His teach ings. Just like a child with their hero, we need to pay that much attention to Jesus. But, what about this sacrifice that He made of Himself to God? Paul describes it as a fragrant aroma. The emphasis must be upon the fact that He did what God wanted done and as a result the sacrifice had a pleasing smell to it. Can we sacrifice our selves to God to the same extent? I believe so. Oh, we are not going to die like He did and we are not going to be beaten like He was, but if we think in those terms we have limited ourselves. Paul is saying that we need to be willing to give our life in service to God. If we really want to go to Heaven when we die then we must be willing to imitate God. Carlton G.

A West Virginia preach er who followed his father into the rare practice of handling snakes to prove faith in God died after being bitten during an out door service involving the reptiles. Mark Randall Mack Wolford, 44 whose own father died in 1983 after suffering a fatal bite had been bitten before and sur vived. But he died earlier this week after witnesses say a timber rattler bit him on the thigh. Wolfords sis ter and a freelance photog rapher told media outlets it happened during a Sunday service at Panther State Forest. Lauren Pond, a free lance photojournalist from Washington, D.C., didnt immediately return messages Thursday but told the Bluefield Daily Telegraph she was among 25 people at the service. She saw Wolford bitten but said congregants were unfazed. I dont think anyone necessarily expected it, she told the newspaper, but theyve dealt with it before so its not such a huge shock, maybe. Bluefield Regional Medical Center spokes woman Becky Ritter said Thursday that Wolford was a patient and died Monday, but that federal privacy laws prevented her from releasing additional infor mation. Officials at the CravensShires Funeral Home also declined to answer ques tions, saying the family had asked that the cause of death be withheld. Several relatives did not answer email and telephone mes sages. The state medical examiners office referred questions to the state Department of Health and Human Resources, which didnt immediately respond. Born in Pike County, Ky., Wolford had lived in the Bramwell area for the past five years and was a pastor at Apostolic House of the Lord Jesus in Matoaka. Unlike many Pentecostal preachers, he embraced publicity, welcoming journalists and photographers, and even taking some on snake hunts as he tried to revive interest in his religion. Ralph Hood, a reli gion professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, saw Wolford bitten by a copperhead about six years ago. Wolford and others pre fer to be called serpent handlers as a reflection of Scripture, and Hood said his friend would want people to remember him as a Christian who was living his beliefs and being obedient. Serpent-handling was only a small part of that, he said. He was trying to revitalize a strong tradition that doesnt make a distinc tion between beliefs and practices. A common misunder standing is that handlers believe they cant get bit or it wont kill them, Hood added. What theyll tell you is, No one will get out of this alive. Theyll also tell you its not a ques tion of how you live; its a question of how you die. ... This is how he would have wanted to die. Wolford and his follow ers have a literal belief in Mark 16:17-18. And these signs will follow those who believe, the verses say. In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover. Although most Appalachian states have outlawed snake handling, it remains legal but rare in West Virginia. Pastor Mack Wolford, a devotee of the Pentecostal Signs Following tradition, handles a rattlesnake during a service at the Church of the Lord Jesus in Jolo, W.Va. Wolford died Sunday after being bitten on the thigh by a timber rattler dur ing an outdoor service. He was 44. Preacher dies after snakebite ASSOCIATED PRESS

Re-start for Kirkman COURTESY PHOTOLake City’s Michael Kirkman shows off the American Lea gue championship ring that was recently presented to him at a Round Rock Express game. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comM ichael Kirkman is sporting more bling and he doesn’t have to wear it out of the bullpen. The Lake City native is pitching for Round Rock (Texas) Express, the Texas Rangers’ Triple A farm club in the Pacific Coast League. Kirkman was recently presented with his second American League championship ring. Kirkman also received a ring from 2010 when he pitched in the World Series. Baseball teams vote shares and partial shares of postseason money for players who spend a part of the season with the big club. Kirkman said it is automatic for championship rings. “If you are on the team at all, even one day of service, you get a ring,” Kirkman said this week. “They gave it to me on the field at Round Rock.” An area of concern for Kirkman fans was a May 21 blog by Evan Grant of dallasnews.com that cited a Rangers’ press release: “Pitcher Michael Kirkman was diagnosed in January with a form of skin cancer during an examination that took place in Gainesville, which is near his off-season home in Lake City. He is currently undergoing regular treatment in Round Rock and is being continually monitored by his doctors in both Florida and Texas.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JUNE 1-2, 2012 3BWilliams sisters suffer French flopBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressPARIS — Almost from the moment Venus and Serena Williams appeared on the Grand Slam scene in the late 1990s, they’ve been winning titles and tran-scending tennis, becoming red-carpet celebrities as much as sports stars. Every so often, like all elite athletes, they’ve heard questions about whether their best days were behind them, whether health prob-lems or off-court distrac-tions were taking their toll. And each time, it seemed, one or the other — or sometimes, amazingly, both — would promptly reach a major final, as if to say, “Hey, don’t count us out yet.” Now that each is past her 30th birthday, and big victories are less frequent than ever, those questions are bound to get more per-sistent, especially after this week. The 2012 French Open has been the worst Grand Slam tournament in Williams family history, the first of the 43 that both entered at which neither reached the third round. Venus lost 6-2, 6-3 in the second round Wednesday at Roland Garros, bare-ly providing any resis-tance against Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, who might be seeded No. 3 but never has been past the quarterfinals at a major tournament. Afterward, Venus spoke about the diffi-culties of adjusting to living with Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease that can cause fatigue and joint pain and leaves her listless some days. Asked whether the thought crossed her mind she might have played her last French Open match, she didn’t hesitate for a moment. “No, not at all,” replied Venus, who turns 32 in June. “This is just the beginning for me. This is a process that I have to learn a lot from, working with myself, with my doctors, everything. Like, this is the beginning for me again. I have to be positive. I can’t walk out on the court and say, ‘Oh, my God, this is it.’ That’s not the way I see it.” Serena, meanwhile, lost 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 in the first round Tuesday to Virginie Razzano of France, a woman who is ranked 111th and never has made it beyond the fourth round at a major tournament. Making it more surprising: Serena was two points from vic-tory nine times but couldn’t close the deal. It’s the only time in 47 career Grand Slam appearances that the younger Williams lost her opening match. “There’s those days someone comes out and they have nothing to lose, so they go for it. ... It’s bad luck. She’s a great player. I think if she could have got-ten through that match, it would have been, this tour-nament, a lot different for her,” Venus said about her sister. “Thankfully she has, like, 20-something majors to keep her warm at night.” That’s true: Counting singles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles, the 30-year-old Serena actu-ally owns 25 Grand Slam trophies. Her 13 in singles represent by far the highest total among active women and the sixth most in his-tory. Venus stands second among women on tour now, with seven, the last in 2008. They’ve teamed up to win 12 in doubles. They’ve always been each other’s fiercest rival and best friend, ever since they emerged as teenagers from Compton, Calif., coached by a father who taught himself tennis by watching instructional videos. They were siblings who competed with each other for top billing in their own home and the entire globe — and with 120 mph serves and pun-ishing groundstrokes, they ushered in a new brand of power-based play. All along, they’ve dabbled in other interests such as fashion (both have worked on clothing lines), interior decorating (Venus’ pursuit) and acting (Serena’s side project). “Serena could have been the greatest player ever. Ever,” 12-time Grand Slam singles champion and wom-en’s sports pioneer Billie Jean King said in a recent interview. “She is the best athlete we’ve ever had in the game. She and her sis-ter Venus were brought up to do many, various things. So they do go in and out, there’s no question. But ... when Serena gets focused, watch out.” Both have been No. 1 in the WTA rankings, but Serena is now No. 5, and Venus is No. 53. They have played each other in eight Grand Slam finals (Serena leads 6-2), including four in a row from 2002-03, but none since Wimbledon in 2009. Serena’s title at the All England Club the next year was the last at a Grand Slam tournament for either Williams; a few days later, she cut her feet on glass at a restaurant, leading to a series of com-plications, including blood clots on her lung. Her latest issue was a bad back, although she refused to blame that for her loss to Razzano. “I’ve just got to ... figure out what I did wrong and not do it again,” Serena said. “You know, learn from it.” There is a new generation of players moving up, and the Williams sisters certainly are at least partly responsible for helping spur the growth of tennis. Its global reach is such that the top 10 women in this week’s rankings repre-sent 10 countries. The past four Grand Slam tourna-ments were won by first-time major champions — Li Na of China, Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, Sam Stosur of Australia and Victoria Azarenka of Belarus — the longest such stretch of debut titles in the Open era, which began in 1968. Venus and Serena Williams made women’s tennis matter more than it had in years, prompting a move from Saturday after-noon to prime time for the U.S. Open title match in 2001, when a pair of sisters met in a Grand Slam singles final for the first time since it happened at Wimbledon all the way back in 1884. The first all-Williams major final 11 years ago drew higher TV ratings than a college football game the same night between two Top 25 college foot-ball teams, Notre Dame and Nebraska. “I definitely grew up watching them. I’ve idol-ized both of them forever. I mean, they were the first players I watched on TV and said, ‘I want to be there, one day, playing the tour-naments that they’re play-ing,”’ said Melanie Oudin, a 20-year-old from Marietta, Ga., who reached the 2009 U.S. Open quarterfinals. “I just can’t see them — especially Serena — retir-ing. Serena’s been the best of the best for so long,” Oudin continued. “Even when she’s out for a while, she comes back, and she can still play amazing tennis and beat everyone.” The world will be watching when Wimbledon begins next month to find out if that’s still the case.

ASSOCIATED PRESSBoston Celtics’ Rajon Rondo (9) drives to the basket as Miami Heat’s Mike Miller (13) defends during the second half of Game 2 in their NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals playoffs series on Wednesday in Miami.Rondo has historic game, but Heat controlling seriesBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI — Rajon Rondo posted a stat line never before seen in NBA play-off history. He was on the court for every second of a game that finished more than three hours after it started. He scored more points in a single overtime than anyone this season. His night was called incredible, amazing and unbelievable — and that was by the Miami Heat. And when it was over, Rondo could only express disappointment that the Boston Celtics needed more. LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored eight of his 23 points in overtime and the Heat took a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals with a 115-111 win over the Celtics on Wednesday night, overcoming what will surely go down as the best game of Rondo’s career to move within six wins of an NBA title. “We lost,” Rondo said, shrugging off talk of the historical ramifications of his night. “Simple as that.” Rondo’s final numbers: 44 points, 10 assists, eight rebounds. He scored all 12 of Boston’s overtime points, giving the Celtics the lead three times, only to have the Heat answer each of those. And when he finally missed in the extra session — on a play where Rondo said he got struck in the face by Wade — then and only then could Miami put Boston away. Game 3 is Friday night in Boston, where the Celtics will try to make this a series. No Celtics team has successfully rallied from an 0-2 hole since 1969. “He really played his heart out and carried the load for us offensively,” Celtics forward Paul Pierce said. “He shot the ball, did everything possible you could ask for in him. You just hate to see an effort like that really go to waste.” ASSOCIATED PRESSRory McIlroy watches his tee shot on the 10th hole during the first round of the Memorial golf tournament on Thursday in Dublin, Ohio.McIlroy recovers from rough start for 71 at MemorialBy DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressDUBLIN, Ohio — Rory McIlroy went from the bun-ker to the water, walked across the pond to the drop area, then hit into another bunker. When he was done making a mess of the 12th hole at Muirfield Village, he had a quadruple-bogey 7 on his card and won-dered if this was going to be another short week. Thanks to the next 15 holes he played Thursday at the Memorial, he felt he was headed in the right direction. McIlroy and Tiger Woods both overcame one bad hole to break par in the opening round on a tough, firm course that was just the way tournament found-er Jack Nicklaus likes it. Woods chopped his way to a double bogey on No. 18 in the middle of his round, but he birdied three of the par 5s and was solid for most of the sunny, pleas-ant day for a 2-under 70. McIlroy one-putted nine greens and chipped in for eagle on the par-5 fifth. A birdie on his last hole gave him a 71. “It wasn’t the start I wanted to get off to, being 4 over through three holes, especially after the last few weeks,” McIlroy said. “I was just like, ‘Here we go again.’ But I hung in there well, and proud of myself for the way I just fought back. To finish the round under par, I thought was a really good effort.” The big winner among early starters was Muirfield Village. Under dry condi-tions, and with a few per-ilous pins, players were protecting par when they got the least bit out of posi-tion. Blake Adams, Andres Romero, Aaron Baddeley and Rory Sabbatini were atop the leaderboard at 69. “You have to find the right parts of the green or else you’re in for a long day,” Adams said. Woods and McIlroy both have hit a bad patch coming into the Memorial. Woods tied for 40th at the Masters and The Players Championship, and in between missed the cut at Quail Hollow for the worst three-tournament stretch of his PGA Tour career. McIlroy is com-ing off missed cuts at The Players and the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, which cost him the No. 1 ranking. McIlroy conceded that he had not prepared prop-erly for Wentworth, and vowed to get his game on track.

(N) Spurrier wants plan to pay playersBy MARK LONGAssociated PressDESTIN — Steve Spurrier is sticking with his plan to pay players. South Carolina’s outspoken coach first floated the idea at the Southeastern Conference’s spring meet-ings last year. Fellow coach-es and league administra-tors listened, but it made little, if any, progress. He trotted out his stipend plan again this week and said Wednesday that football coaches voted 14-0 to present the proposal to league athletic directors. The ADs will discuss it and decide whether to present it to school presidents and chancellors for an official vote Friday. “We’re trying to get extra money for living expense, academic expense, game-related expense to our players because of the tre-mendous amount of money — billions — they’re bring-ing” in, Spurrier said. Spurrier’s plan seemed farfetched in 2011, but then the NCAA Division I Board of Directors started working on a proposal that would give scholarship athletes $2,000 toward the full cost of attendance — money that covers expenses beyond tuition, room and board, books and fees. The NCAA has delayed implementing the stipend while seeking feedback on an issue that was met with criticism and concern. Spurrier and others, especially those in the powerful and wealthy SEC, believe $2,000 isn’t even enough. Spurrier and his SEC colleagues would like to give football and men’s basket-ball players “approximately $3,500 to $4,000” — out of pocket — for the entire year to cover expenses. “We as coaches believe they’re entitled to a little more than room, books, board and tuition,” Spurrier said. “Again, we as coaches would be willing to pay it if they were to approve it to where our guys could get approximately get three-, four-thousand bucks a year. It wouldn’t be that much, but enough to allow them to live like normal student-athletes. “We think they need more and deserve more. It’s as simple as that.” It’s not really simple, though. When asked if his plan included all 85 scholarship football players, Spurrier said, “Well, that’s where it gets a little tricky.” Other issues are sure to arise, too. Would the plan be in compliance with Title IX? Is it really fair to offer the additional stipend only to student-athletes in rev-enue-generating sports? And what about the notion that giving extra money to football and men’s bas-ketball players in the SEC essentially would amount to a free-agent system that could entice the nation’s top kids to sign with the richest conference? “It’s one of those things as coaches that we’re con-stantly fighting for kids and doing everything we can to help them,” Vanderbilt coach James Franklin said. “And I really appreciate that. I’m the same way, but on the same hand, I also know it’s more complex than we maybe think it is and there’s a lot of things that go into it. You have to be aware of that. “Yeah, it’s easy to just talk about football doing it, but if you’re going to do it, you can’t just do it for football and basketball. You have to do it for all the sports and it can’t just be for schools in the SEC. It has to be all over the country.” Spurrier recalled making $75,000 annually at Duke in 1987, plus $25,000 for his weekly television show, and pointed out how coach-ing salaries have multiplied repeatedly in the 25 years since. All but two SEC coaches — Kentucky’s Joker Phillips and Mississippi’s Hugh Freeze — makes at least $2 million annually. But Spurrier noted that scholarship athletes haven’t benefited from the ever-growing boon, getting mar-ginally more than the room, board and books Spurrier got when he played at Florida in the 1960s. LSU coach Les Miles agreed. “We recognize that the income producers are both the football and basketball programs, period,” Miles said. “So there’s a want to say with this extra income we would like to provide cost of education and cost of expense stipends to those players.” ASSOCIATED PRESSSteve Spurrier (left), head coach of the University of South Carolina, and Kerwin Bell, head football coach at Jackso nville University, watch the Jacksonville Jaguars during NFL foo tball practice on May 24 in Jacksonville.

Carl Edwards372; behind -81The recent death of a 12-year-old driver at Auburndale Speedway inFlorida has ignited debate over thewisdom of allowing the very youngto compete in motorsports. According to published reports, Tyler Morr was competing in theAuburndale Kid’s Club,a series thatraces at the little,quarter-milepaved oval alongside Modifieds andStreet Stocks.The cars are four-cylinder,front-wheel-drive cars,anddrivers can be as young as five if anadult rides in the passenger seat.Tyler was driving by himself andwearing a firesuit and closed-facehelmet when he and another 12-year-old collided and crashed into awall at less than 50 miles per hour. Jeff Gordon,who started racing at age five,said that while he didn’tknow all the details,it appears tohim that Morr’s death was just anaccident and shouldn’t be taken asmore than that. “I had friends that lost their lives when I was racing QuarterMidgets,”he said.“It rarely hap-pened,but it did happen.Just like inany other sport,those accidents canhappen. “We constantly evolve with technology and making things safer … Iwouldn’t think twice about puttingmy kids in a race car if I know whatkind of car it is,and I know its sanctioning body that’s organizing theevents and the race tracks,anddoing everything I can to make surethat they’re in a good environmentas well as a safe one.” Gordon said he doesn’t believe that racing is any less safe thanother sports that kids play. “I think of football,and I was actually talking to some footballplayers at a golf tournament theother day about these head injuriesand what’s going on with [the] NFLright now with the concussions,”hesaid.“In our sport,you’ll get some ofthat from time to time,but we’ve improved it so much over time.Butit’s always tragic when it’s somebodyyoung who has his whole life aheadof him.” Gordon said that early in his career,he saw a young friend killedat the track. “Those accidents happened like what happened to a friend of mine;akid named Jimmy Gerardo,and I’llnever forget that day,”he said.“Iwas in the race,and I’m not surewhat happened,but he wentstraight into the wall and hit a 4-by-4 post and broke his neck;andkind of the same kind of injurieswe’ve seen in this sport. “That was my first experience of it.I didn’t quite grasp and under-stand it.But what I did know is thatit was an accident,and it was onethat we could learn from on how tobuild the fences and how to buildthe cars.We were a long ways fromHANS devices and things like thatback then,so I think it was my firstindication of that there are risksinvolved.” But he said the tragedy didn’t affect his desire to race. “It didn’t slow me down at all,”he said.“My heart really went out tohis family and the fact that myfriend wasn’t going to be there torace with or to hang out and playwith when we weren’t on the track.” Most up-and-coming young race driverswant people to know all about them,thinking the knowledge will further their career.But Ben Kennedy just wants tobe one of the faces in the lineup. But Kennedy’s situation is unique,and he can’t be blamed for wanting to be looked at asjust another racer.His mother is LesaKennedy,the chairwoman of InternationalSpeedway Corp.and the vice chair and execu-tive vice president of NASCAR.Ben’s lategreat-grandfather is NASCAR founder BillFrance Sr. Most of the time when Kennedy,a 20-yearold University of Florida student,is drivinghis Late Model or competing on the NASCARK&N Pro Series,the only time it’s apparentthat he’s a part of NASCAR’s first family iswhen his mother or grandmother show up towatch him race,which is pretty often thesedays. That puts Lesa Kennedy in a far different position at the track than the one in whichshe usually finds herself.When Ben’s racing,she’s more Mom and less NASCAR executive. “I think it initially scared her a little bit,” Ben Kennedy said with a chuckle.“But she’swarming up to it a little bit.She’s starting tobecome a fan and enjoys coming to the racesand stuff.” Kennedy said he’s relieved that his connections to the people who control NASCARhaven’t drawn a lot of attention. “I’m glad they don’t really shine any light on that,”he said.“My goal is to blend in witheverybody out there and not stand out toomuch.” So far there’s been little evidence of Kennedy receiving any special favors.In fact, the opposite might be true. In a recent race at Gresham Motorsports Park in Jefferson,Ga.,Kennedy was leadinglate in the feature event when he was black-flagged for jumping the restart.He was sentto the rear of the pack but bounced back for atop-five finish. “It was very frustrating and unfortunate the way it happened,”he said.“But it was apart of racing. “I definitely respect their call and everything that went with it.I still ended up with atop five,so it wasn’t a horrible night.” Kennedy’s had many other rewarding nights since he decided at a relatively late ageto give race driving a try. He was encouraged by NASCAR team owner Eddie Wood,who told him how muchfun he and his own son Jon had racingtogether.Veteran crew chief and team manag-er Robbie Loomis set up his first drive in acompetitive go-kart,and NASCAR driverMark Martin helped steer his career in hisearly days of competing on the short tracks ofFlorida,where he won a championship in thePro-Truck class at Orlando Speedworld andNew Smyrna Speedway as well as a SuperLate Model championship at Orlando. He was the 2010 Rookie of the Year in the Bright House Challenge Series and wasnamed the SRP Pistons Sportsman of theYear. Kennedy said his career has taken giant strides in the past two years as he’s venturedaway from his home base in Florida and racedat tracks across the nation.His best finish inthe K&N Series came in the circuit’s first visitto historic Bowman Gray Stadium inWinston-Salem,N.C.,where he finished third. This year he’s racing a car prepared by Bill Elliott’s race team in Dawsonville,Ga.,and isgetting career guidance from Elliott.His crewchief is Mike Fritz,who recently worked withRicky Carmichael in NASCAR’s CampingWorld Truck Series. “Bill’s been a great help,”Kennedy said. “He’s a very nice person,and he has a ton ofexperience.He’s been around the sport forev-er.He has a great crew and a great facility inDawsonville.He’s a great all-around resourcefor us.” Racing at different tracks is making a difference as well. “I’ve probably learned more in the last year than I have in the rest of my racing career,just from traveling,”Kennedy said.“At thebeginning of last year,I’d only been to fourtracks.At the end of last year I’d been to 20something.That traveling experience will payoff.” Like most of his peers,Kennedy would like to see his career take him to the top levels ofNASCAR. “My long-term goal is to get to the Sprint Cup Series one day,”he said.“But I’m going totake it one step at a time and see where itgoes each year,whether it’s trucks orNationwide [Series] or wherever it goes fromhere. “Hopefully I’ll reach my ultimate goal.”But if driving doesn’t work out,there’s still the possibility of a key position in the familycompany. “I’ve thought about it,”he said.“If it comes, it’ll come.If not,I’ll stick to this end of it.I’vedefinitely considered it many times.I’ve beenaround the business side all of my life,butnow I’m really enjoying the competitive side.” NOTEBOOK Sweet victory at Coca-Cola 600Kasey Kahne got his first win of the season, and his first since joining HendrickMotorsports,when he drove away from thefield at the end of Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 atCharlotte Motor Speedway.For Kahne,it wasa long-anticipated victory and an especiallysweet one given his struggles at the start ofthe season. Looking back,Kahne’s turnaround actually began after he left Martinsville Speedway,where he started on the pole but blew anengine and finished 38th,leaving him 31st inpoints. Since then he’s finished no worse than eighth,and now with his third career win inthe Coca-Cola 600,he’s up to 15th in thestandings. “It felt really good to put the entire race together and have speed all night long,”Kahnesaid.“It feels good to get a win for HendrickMotorsports.It’s something I’ve been lookingforward to,for a year and a half,to drive forHendrick Motorsports,to be teammates withJimmie [Johnson],Dale [Earnhardt Jr.] andJeff [Gordon].To put it all together and get thewin,it feels good.”Newman on tires, tempermentRyan Newman should have as good an idea as anyone about how this weekend’s race atDover International Speedway will play out.He was one of the drivers who participated in aGoodyear tire test that helped decide whichtire compound will be used this week. The tire compound is a big factor in how tires wear throughout the race,and Newmansaid during his media appearance at Charlottelast week that the tires at the test didn’t seemto wear and lose speed after being run fornumerous laps.He said the racing is generallybetter when tires wear over the course of agreen-flag run,especially on concrete trackssuch as Bristol Motor Speedway and Dover. “Hopefully,the cars will fall off a little bit more,and we will have to rely on the driverpedaling the car and things like that,whichhas always given us a better opportunity atgreat racing,”he said.“We have seen that inthe past at a place like Bristol,which to me isjust a smaller version of Dover.” Newman also addressed his reputation for being one of the toughest drivers to pass – adescription he didn’t deny. “Starting going back to Quarter Midgets,and then especially in the stock cars,I was alwaystaught to race hard,”he said.“I always hadfast-enough race cars that I never had to give.Icould always take.And that came back tohaunt me,I guess,for a few years there,because I was the one getting turned aroundbecause I wasn’t giving it up;and rightfully so,probably,because I didn’t know and didn’t gettaught that. “So,I’m trying to be better at the give-andtake thing.” By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick Scion of NASCAR’s first family wants to be just ano ther driverJeff Gordon ,who started racing at the age of five,at the Sprint All-Star Race at on May18.(NASCAR photo) Ryan Newman during practice for the Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on April 12.(NASCAR photo) Ben Kennedy practices for the NASCAR K&N Series Wid ow Wax 125 at Bristol Motor Speedway on March 16.(N ASCAR photo) NEXTUP...

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JUNE 1-2, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My parents divorced when I was in third grade, and my sister and I lived with my mother. When I was 16, Mom met a man online, quit her job and moved across the country to be with him. My sister and I begged her to let us finish school first, but she was adamant about moving. She gave us a choice -move with her to another state or move in with our father. We chose the latter. Since then, my mother has not been a part of my life. She calls occasionally, but never on my birthday or special holidays. I invit-ed her to my wedding, but she didn’t attend. When I think of my mother, I asso-ciate her with feelings of abandonment and unhap-piness. Mom called me last week, and frankly it was upsetting. I have heard from others how unhappy she is with her life and the choices she made, although she hasn’t said it to me directly. I find it painful to hear her say she loves me, because there’s a difference between say-ing it and living it. I have forgiven her, but it doesn’t mean I want to sign up for more of that treatment. Is there a moral obligation to allow her back into my life? I believe you can’t help what happens in your childhood, but you can decide how you let it affect you. Or is it OK to stay on the path I have chosen and keep my distance from her? -MORALLY PERPLEXED IN TEXAS DEAR PERPLEXED: If a closer relationship with your mother would be dan-gerous for you emotionally, then you shouldn’t risk it. It is not your fault that the life she chose didn’t turn out to be a happy one for her. After years of being treated with indifference by her, if you choose to keep your distance, I support your decision. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Perhaps I’m a little old-fashioned, but do you think it’s accept-able when having a large wedding and reception to hurry your guests away so a smaller group of intimate family and friends can attend a more exclusive reception? Is this now common among new couples? I’d gladly attend a single open house or reception in the new couple’s honor after their honeymoon, when they wouldn’t be so rushed. Your thoughts, please. -SOMEWHAT OFFENDED IN KENTUCKY DEAR SOMEWHAT OFFENDED: No, it is not a trend. To shoo away one’s guests so that a private party can be held afterward is rude. It shows lack of consideration for the feelings of one’s guests, and it is very poor manners. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am a single mother with three chil-dren. Several years ago we bought a puppy. When we got her, we were told if she ever gets lost, she could be located through the chip that had been placed in her. (The breeder said it was just a “shot.”) You can also buy a car these days with a global position-ing device installed so the car can be located if it is stolen. The cost for the police to find a missing child has got to be astronomi-cal. Wouldn’t it be much cheaper to come up with global positioning chips for our children? They do it for dogs and cats. When will we make our children safer than we do our pets and our cars? -JUST THINKING IN FLORIDA DEAR JUST THINKING: You have come up with an interest-ing concept, and not just one for small children. It could work for members of the military and workers who go abroad to danger-ous locations, and also for people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease who might wander. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My wife, “Angie,” and I have been happily married for 11 years and have two won-derful kids. Angie has been working out the past couple of years and has achieved impressive results. She looks great. I fully support her in this and she knows it. The problem is she’s consumed by an insa-tiable hunger to be thin, although she is already very much in shape. She talks nonstop about new diets and ideas for losing weight, even though I constantly compliment her. Why does she keep insist-ing that she needs to diet? -ALARMED HUSBAND DEAR ALARMED: Your wife doesn’t see herself the way you do. She does not accept that she has achieved her goal and regards herself as still a work in progress. This may be because she has low self-esteem, or she may have a condition called “body dysmorphia,” in which a person can’t stop thinking about a per-ceived flaw in his or her appearance. The person she should be talking to about her weight issues is her physi-cian. I recommend you suggest it to her to be sure her preoccupation isn’t an unhealthy one. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I’m a high school senior. My boyfriend has asked me to marry him and I said yes. I don’t know if I may have said it too quickly or if I should have waited. My family keeps asking me if I’m “sure.” Well, I want to be with him, but I don’t know about marriage. Please help me. I don’t want to make a big mis-take. -CONFUSED TEEN IN SELMA, ALA. DEAR CONFUSED: If you are unsure if you want to be married, you agreed too quickly. What you need to do is take a little time to decide what you want to do with your future. Before marrying, it would be wise to consider completing your education so you will be better able to contribute financially to your marriage partnership. If you do, you will need to focus on your studies for the next few years. If not, you should still postpone marriage until you have lived apart from your fami-ly long enough to establish emotional and financial independence. Your family keeps asking if you’re “sure” because they are con-cerned that you have made too hasty a decision. The dreams you have at 18 may change by the time you are 23. Until you are 100 percent sure you are doing the right thing, do not set a wedding date. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My estranged niece’s high school graduation is com-ing up, and her father (my brother) has invited me to attend. He says she wants all her aunts (including me) to be there. I’m not sure I should go because she kicked us out of her life years ago when she went to live with her mom after her parents separated. She said many hurtful things to her mom about us at the time and said she wanted us out of her life. Please advise me. -TAKEN ABACK IN SANTA ANA, CALIF. DEAR TAKEN ABACK: It strikes me as strange that the woman your brother was divorcing would repeat the uncompli-mentary things her daugh-ter (may have) said about family members -unless it was an attempt at parental alienation. I hope you won’t let something your niece might have said years ago, while under the emotional strain of her parents’ separation, keep you from attending the graduation. She has most likely matured since then and would like to mend fences. Remember that when you see this girl, and treat her warmly and see what happens. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Partnerships are highlighted. Whether it’s someone you work with or someone you love, you can get a better understanding of the direction you are taking together. Changes to the way you earn your living will involve hard work and high returns. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Not everyone will have your best interests at heart. Take care of your work, refusing to leave anything in the hands of someone who may not give the same attention to detail you would. Put in extra hours if necessary. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Jump into the spot-light. Take any opportunity to discuss your plans and present what you have to offer. Your keen sense of what works will separate you from anyone trying to outsmart you. Love is in the stars. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Divulging secret information will lead to bad feelings. Make sure you don’t give anyone the wrong impression or lead someone on who may have a personal interest in you. Take care of what needs to be done without nagging or complaining. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are in control, so don’t give in to demands. You set the rules and lay out the game plan. Romance or socializing should be planned for the evening hours. A creative twist to the way you do things will bring added interest. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Observation will be your greatest resource. Keeping your thoughts and plans to yourself will help you avoid opposition. A creative approach to a job you take on will lead to a chance to develop a tal-ent you enjoy using. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will surprise everyone with your enthu-siasm and your original ideas. Social or networking events will allow you to win the support of people who can contribute to your advancement. Love, travel and adventure are high-lighted. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick close to home or to the people you know and trust. Back away from anyone trying to convince you to spend money on something you aren’t sure you need or want. Give your creativity and imagi-nation license to develop something new. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you are anything but fair, you will meet with opposition. If you aren’t careful, prob-lems will develop while traveling or dealing with people who have differ-ent beliefs. Stick close to home and to those who share your ideals. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t leave any-thing undone. Clear your mind so you can enjoy your downtime. The ideas you share and the sup-port you get from friends or family will lead to an interesting new project. A financial deal may need a little push. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): A contract, settlement or investment will change your future. Don’t let a poor relation-ship with someone ruin your day. Focus on the people you most enjoy spending time with and walk away from anyone who tries to manipulate you. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to the truth. Do whatever it takes to get along with friends and family. Aggressive behav-ior must not be tolerated. Take on a challenge that will help you defuse any pent-up anger or nervous-ness you are feeling. +++ THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last No moral responsibility to let estranged mother back in life Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

10B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JUNE 1-2, 2012 KIRKMAN: Health is fine Continued From Page 1Bis allowed to participate in full baseball activity while undergoing the treatment, and the prognosis is for a full recovery.” Kirkman said it is really not a skin cancer, calling it “B cell lymphoma.” “It is found on the skin, but it is not caused by the sun,” Kirkman said. “The area I got it is covered up all the time. I have had two treatments and it is already starting to go away.” Kirkman has appeared in two games since the blog was posted. Kirkman was Pitcher of the Year and an all-star in the Pacific Coast League in 2010 as a starter. He was brought up by the Rangers in both 2010 and 2011 and used out of the bullpen. Kirkman pitched in 14 games in 2010, including the postseason, and 15 games in 2011. Kirkman went to spring training with the Rangers and was sent to Round Rock. He struggled as a reliever, posting an 11.12 ERA in five games. The Express returned him to a starting role. In eight starts since, Kirkman is 4-1 with a 4.71 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 36 13 innings. “I love being a starter,” Kirkman said. “You have time to prepare and you get to know the hitters a little more. I have been feeling real good. The mechanical things are going well. I am not overthrowing.” The Rangers have the best record in the American League and, when faced with starter problems, recently signed Roy Oswalt. “I might have a quicker chance to get back as a reliever,” Kirkman said. “Up there, it doesn’t really matter but my best chance to make it back is in the bullpen. I like them both, but I definitely like to start.” Kirkman expects another chance to start today in Memphis, as the Express is wrapping up an eight-game road trip. Kirkman got to face Manny Ramirez, who is playing with Sacramento in an attempt to get back to the bigs with Oakland. “I faced him twice,” Kirkman said. “He swung at the first pitch and got a ground ball single and the next time up I got him on a pop-up.” Murray, Nadal advance at French Open ASSOCIATED PRESSRafael Nadal of Spain returns in his second round match against Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan at the French Open tenn is tournament in Roland Garros stadium in Paris on Thursday. By CHRIS LEHOURITESAssociated PressPARIS — Grimacing in pain with almost every step, Andy Murray nearly had to call it quits Thursday because of a back spasm at the French Open. Instead, the fourthseeded Brit rebounded from an awful first set to beat Jarkko Nieminen 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 and reach the third round. “I was few points probably from stopping,” Murray said. “I just didn’t really want to stop the match. Then at the end of the second set I started standing up at the change of ends, and my back started to loosen up a little bit.” Defending champion Rafael Nadal also made it to the third round, defeating Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 and improving his record at Roland Garros to 47-1. The second-seeded Spaniard has won the French Open six times, and one more will break the record he shares with Bjorn Borg. Murray could barely walk straight when the match started on Court Philippe Chatrier, gingerly trotting around the red clay with the equivalent of a big target on his back. Nieminen took advantage, at the beginning. But after losing the first four games, Murray called for a trainer. He then broke back to 4-1, and needed more treatment during the changeover. It was then that he started to consider retiring from the match. “It was around that period, end of the first set, and then when I played a couple more games,” Murray said. “Then I was thinking whether to keep playing or not. “I’m happy I did.”Despite being broken to open the second set, Murray started to move better and make his shots count. By the time he broke back to even that score at 4-4, Murray was the one getting stronger. “I should have taken a double break in the second set to have taken the second set,” Nieminen said. “I couldn’t take that, and then I played one very poor changeover, two bad games, and then he started to play better. “I really never got the momentum back.” Last year, Murray injured his right ankle at the French Open, but he still made the semifinals. This year, he skipped the Madrid Open with a back problem and said it was still affecting him after a three-set loss to Richard Gasquet in the third round of the Italian Open. Murray said the injury Thursday was different, but that his trainer advised him that he couldn’t do any permanent damage by playing. “Then, obviously, it didn’t feel good. So they were telling me to stop, and then I just kept going, and then it started to feel a bit better,” Murray said. No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France and No. 6 David Ferrer of Spain also advanced, while Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova reached the third round by beating Urszula Radwanska of Poland 6-1, 6-3. The fourth-seeded Czech was never really troubled on Court Suzanne Lenglen, saving all three break points she faced. Kvitova secured her first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon last year, and then won the WTA Championships. Although she has yet to win a title in 2012, she is seeded fourth in Paris and is expected to go deep into the tournament. “I don’t have any expectation. I know that last season was great for me, and it will be very tough to have similar result as last year,” Kvitova said. “So I know this season will be very tough with the pressure and with everything else.” Radwanska is the younger sister of third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska. The elder sibling reached the third round on Wednesday by beating seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams. Caroline Wozniacki also made it through. The ninth-seeded Dane, who last year spent all but one week as the No. 1-ranked player, beat Jarmila Gajdosova of Australia 6-1, 6-4. Wozniacki is still looking for her first Grand Slam title. At Roland Garros, she has never been past the quarterfinals, losing at that stage in 2010. Francesca Schiavone, the 2010 French Open champion and runner-up last year, defeated Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria 2-6, 6-3, 6-1. #"QMBZUFYFNCSPJEFSFECSB$$FWFSZEBZ#"B O BTIJSSFEUFF#*FWFSZEBZ'CPZTBSJ[POBQPMPT#"FWFSZEBZ #$HVZTBSJ[POBKFBOT$"FWFSZEBZ FTUQSJDFTTUBSUUPEBZ BOEMBTUVOUJMUIFHPPETBSFHPOF 4IPQOPX KDQ DPN!CFTUQSJDF $"MFFDSPQT$*FWFSZEBZ 43Y#*Y45YY8
