By TONY BRITT email@example.com When Tropical Storm Debby began dumping rain on Columbia County and forcing residents from their homes, several members of the Church On The Way, took it upon themselves to help those affected by the water. Some two weeks after the storm, members of the church are continuing their efforts to help in the recovery effort. We were out in the beginning of the storm helping houses not flooded, digging trenches, and rerouting water through neigh borhoods, said Dale Tompkins, lead pastor at Church On The Way. Later that day it turned into going and rescuing some people that were stranded and getting some boats and boat back into some high areas where the waters had risen to roof lines. Tompkins said a family of seven called a church member and told him the water was in their home, rising faster than they could get out and members of the church COURTESY Church On The Way members use a canoe to reach flooded homes.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com An increased mosquito popu lation has been one of the lin gering impacts of floodwaters brought on by Tropical Storm Debby. Harvey Campbell, county pub lic information officer, said he received reports from personnel from the county landfill, which houses the county mosquito control office, that one trap east of U.S. Highway 90 collected more than 5,000 mosquitoes in a 48-hour period. He said the mosquito trapping is being done to identify how many of a certain type of mos quito known to carry diseases is in the area. According to the surveys, one percent of the mosquitoes have been identified as those known to carry Eastern Equine Encephalitis, West Nile Virus and diseases that cause heart worm in animals. Mark Lander, Columbia County Health Department interim administrator, said the health department has received numerous calls about mosqui toes. The health department is working with mosquito con trol on distributing larvicide in standing waters to kill mosquito larvae in addition the county has put in a request for aerial spray ing at the state level, he said. The county is continuing to do ground spraying. Theyve been doing ground spraying in the most heavily impacted areas.

Matthew 4:4 NIV Thought for the Day The truth is, everybody Ive ever met whos successful is a workaholic. ICE-T MIAMI Miami Heat star James Jones says he will return next season. Jones confirmed he would join his teammates next year during an event Thursday where he hung out with about 80 summer campers from Little Haiti. Jones was supposed to surprise a foster boy with a personal invitation to attend his summer camp, but the child wasnt able to make it at the last minute. Jones has made arrange ments for the child to attend his Camp for Champions next week along with other South Florida foster youth. The annual camp includes sports and leader ship activities designed to build self-esteem and con fidence. Missing tycoon seen jumping waves FORT LAUDERDALE A witness who may have been the last person to see a missing South Florida oil tycoon says Guma Aguiars boat was speeding and jumping waves shortly before he disappeared last month. Fort Lauderdale police have been going through the boats GPS data and cell phone records. Aguiars fishing boat washed ashore with the engine running. His wal let and phone were on the boat, but Aguiar was nowhere to be found. GPS data shows the boat never came to a complete stop in the Atlantic Ocean, and travelled about three nautical miles from shore. Police said Aguiars top speed was 31 miles per hour on rough seas. The boat abruptly dropped speed 20 minutes later and changed direction, eventu ally coming ashore. Police said there is no evidence of foul play. Teen hopes to avoid life term WEST PALM BEACH A Port St. Lucie teen accused of bludgeoning his parents with a hammer believes he has such a strong defense hell reach a plea deal to avoid a life sentence But for now, 18-year-old Tyler Hadley has pleaded not guilty in the deaths last July of Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley. Police say Hadley threw a huge party at his parents house after their deaths. In jailhouse letters to friends and family, he expresses hope he can avoid a life prison sentence or be placed in a state hos pital. The teen repeatedly complains of depression in his letters, says he cries daily and prays for forgive ness. The letters are part of a batch of documents made public by prosecutors. Death penalty tossed in case TALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court has thrown out the death sentence of a South Florida man in the 2001 murder of an Opa-locka auto repair shop owner. The court upheld Wadada Delhalls firstdegree murder conviction, but vacated the death sentence and ordered a new sentencing. The jus tices said an overzealous prosecutor tainted the sentencing by appearing committed in closing argu ments to winning a death sentence instead of seek ing justice. Delhall was convicted of fatally shooting of Hubert McCrae. Prosecutors said Delhall murdered McCrae because he was the only known eyewitness to the murder of another man named Gilbert Bennett. Delhalls brother, Negus Delhall, was charged in Bennetts slaying. The trial court imposed the death sentence for Wadada Delhall though the jury split on the death sentence by an 8-4 vote. State recruiting more foster parents TALLAHASSEE State child welfare authorities are introducing a new plan aimed at recruiting 1,200 more foster parents for some of the 20,000 chil dren now in foster care across Florida. Department of Children and Families Secretary David Wilkins said Thursday that the agency wants to eliminate many of its rules and regulations that often hamper efforts to attract foster parents. Wilkins said the new DCF program is designed to let foster kids be kids and give them quality fos ter home that can provide them with that opportunity while removing them from harms way. James Jones hangs out with summer campers n Associated Press LONDON Mick Jagger may need to rethink the words he sang more than 45 years ago What a drag it is getting old. Thursday marks 50 years since Jagger played his first gig with a band called the Rolling Stones, and the group is marking its halfcentury with no letup in its productivity or rock n roll style. Jagger himself is still the cool, rich frontman of the worlds most successful rock band. Now in their late 60s and early 70s, the band members celebrated the anniversary by attending a retrospective photo exhibi tion at Londons Somerset House and looking to the future by rehearsing for new gigs. Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts mingled with celebri ties from Mick Hucknall to Tom Stoppard at a launch party for the exhibition, which charts the bands career from their first offi cial photo shoot young mop tops lined up against a row of red phone boxes to their monster stadium tours. Its like walking into an old diary, Richards said. The band got together 50 years to the day after the young R&B band played Londons Marquee Club. Taking a name from a song by bluesman Muddy Waters, they were billed as The Rollin Stones the g came later. The lineup for the gig was vocalist Jagger, gui tarists Richards and Brian Jones, bassist Dick Taylor, pianist Ian Stewart and Mick Avory on drums. Taylor, Stewart and Avory soon left the lineup; drum mer Watts joined in 1963 and guitarist Wood in 1975. The band had its first hit, a cover of Chuck Berrys Come On, in 1963, and soon became one of the worlds biggest and most influential rock acts, rivaled only by The Beatles. The Beatles split up in 1970, but the Stones are still going strong some thing Jagger says he could never have imagined at the time. Groups in those days and singers didnt really last very long, Jagger, 68, told the BBC. They werent supposed to last. It was supposed to be ephemeral. It was only really Elvis and The Beatles that were the big gest things that ever hap pened in pop music that I can remember. But even (Elvis) had lasted perhaps less than 10 years, so how could anyone really last? Richards told the BBC that his biggest regret in the last 50 years was the drowning death in 1969 of Brian Jones, but that on the whole the bands career has been an incredible adventure. Music critic John Aizlewood said the Stones contribution to rock n roll is immeasurable. They are a founding father of rock music as we know it, he said. Other bands have tried and not pulled off that amount of sexiness, allied to a kind of street-fighting menace. Aizlewood said the Rolling Stones have endured where other bands have split because they are smart enough to put the band ahead of the individuals, despite their collective egos. He said they are also canny businessmen, and realized early on that once you get to a certain level, if you maintain your live performance, you can play stadiums forever. Accident puts actress in hospital NEW YORK Actress Kristin Chenoweth is out of the hospital after being injured on the set of the CBS drama The Good Wife. Her publicist, Jill Fritzo, said Thursday that Chenoweth was home recovering after being hit on the head by a piece of set equipment that fell in a gust of wind on Wednesday. After being treated by medics on the scene, the 43-year-old actress was taken to a hospital. Fritzo said Chenoweth thanks everyone for their prayers and good wishes. Chenoweth won a Tony Award for her role in Broadways Youre a Good Man, Charlie Brown and an Emmy Award for her work on Pushing Daisies. She has a recurring role on The Good Wife in the upcoming season. Charlie Watts, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Mick Jagger, from the British Rock The Rolling Stones, arrive at a central London venue Thursday to mark the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones first performance.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JULY 13-14, 2012 3A 3A Habitat hands over keys to 5th home Editors note: Due to a production error, a portion of this story was omitted in Thursdays edition of the Lake City Reporter. It is reprinted here in its entirety. By TONY BRITT email@example.com More than five months of work, sweat, bonding and fellowship culmi nated earlier this week in a celebration when the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate dedicated its recently com pleted house. The house dedication took place Monday afternoon, July 9, when Annie Mosley and her family received the keys to a 1,200 sq. ft. home with four bed rooms and two bathrooms. George L. Burnham Jr., chairman of the board of the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/Columbia County said it took a little more than five months for the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/ Columbia County and its volunteers to complete the home. Roughly 40 peo ple total attended the event, predomi nantly volunteers, directors, officers and donors. It was a great day for the affiliate, but especially for the family, Burnham said. Annie Mosley and her family were the recipients of the home. It feels wonderful to finally have my home completed, she said. Its won derful because this is like a dream come true. Judy Conklin, a local Habitat For Humanity board member who volun teered on the project, said she is happy its been completed. I feel honored and fortunate to have worked on this home for a deserving family, Conklin said. I met Annie last year working on a previous house. Its a pleasure to have helped her own her own home. Mosley also spoke about having a new home. It means the world to me to have a new home, Mosley said. Its an oppor tunity that I never thought would be presented to me and my family and Im very appreciative and thankful for everybodys help. The dedication of the home marked the fifth home that the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/Columbia County has completed. Weve built five houses since 2005, Burnham said. It provides simple, decent, affordable housing for low income families. Its a hand up and not a hand out. Burnham said completing the home improved the neighborhood. This home is a safe haven for a family and we did improve the neighborhood, he said. The lots were donated and we cleaned them up and removed 14 con tainer loads of rubbish. Mosley said she and her children are enjoying the home. The kids love it and picking out their rooms and the colors, she said. Its still hard to believe, but were taking it all in. Although the organization just dedi cated its most recently completed home earlier this week, Burnham said they are looking for another eligible family so the organization can begin building again in the near future. We are currently seeking qualified, hardworking partner families, he said. We currently do not have anyone to build another house for at this time. There are three requirements to become a partner family with the Habitat for Humanity of Lake City/Columbia County. The requirements are: The family must live in substandard housing; the family has to put 350 sweat equity hours in their home or someone elses home and the family must sign a 20-year zero interest mortgage. We would like to thank all of our donors, volunteers, advocates and partner family for making this such an exciting event for the community, Burnham said. Burnham also spoke of presenting a Bible to the Mosley family as part of the home dedication. This organization is a Christian min istry to provide housing which began in 1976 by Millard Fuller and his wife Linda, he said. Thirty-six years later, this orga nization has 1,700 affiliates in 93 nations and has built more than a 1.5 million homes serving 2 million people around the world. The local Habitat affiliate has no paid staff and is operated by volunteers. We currently have enough money in the bank to immediately start another house, provided we can get a qualified, hardwork ing partner family from Columbia County or Lake City, Burnham said. We already have the property to construct the home. We would like to emphasize more involve ment from the churches and large employ ers for donors and volunteers and partner families. From staff reports LIVE OAK Public workshops on rule development for statewide consumptive use permitting consistency (CUPcon) will be hosted in August by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Suwannee River Water Management District. The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 7 at the District head quarters, 9225 County Road 49 in Live Oak. The second will be held in Chiefland on Wednesday, August 8 at the Tommy Usher Community Center, 506 SW 4th Ave. Both meetings will begin at 9 a.m. All interested parties are invited to attend. The purpose of the CUPcon workshops is to inform the public about a statewide effort, led by FDEP, to improve consis tency in the consumptive/water use per mitting programs implemented by the five water management districts. Consumptive use permitting rules, developed under the authority of Ch. 373, F.S., are inconsistent among the districts. This results in confusion for the regulated public, particularly along the border areas of the districts, and inequitable treatment of similar applicants in different districts. The development of separate procedures and rules also is costly and inefficient. The goals of CUPcon are to make wateruse permitting programs less confusing for applicants; to treat applicants equitably statewide; to streamline the process; to provide consistent protection of the envi ronment; and to provide incentives for behavior that protects water resources (such as water conservation). The agenda for both workshops includes an overview of CUPcon and discussion of proposed rule changes to Chapter 62-40, F.A.C.; permit types/thresholds; condi tions of issuance; water conservation; 10year compliance report; compliance moni toring; and specific water management district rule amendments. Public com ment will be invited and updates on other CUPcon workgroups will be provided. For more information visit the CUPcon page on DEPs website at www.dep.state. fl.us/water/waterpolicy/cupcon.htm or contact Carlos Herd at 386.362.1001 or 800.226.1066 (FL toll free). Public workshops set on water use permit rules traffic control all weekend. Residents will also see an increase in traffic on U.S. Highway 90 from the tournament, Campbell said. Wait times at area restaurants and businesses will also increase, he said. Jacksonville Storm is a girls youth tournament and travel softball orga nization from Northeast Florida. It hosts bi-annual college showcases for its teams and other across from the southeast, said Paul Marsh, tournament director and coach. This is probably one of, if not the best, in Florida, Marsh said. The main goal is to help the players continue their education with softball scholarships, he said. Softball players and their families are traveling from South Florida and as far away as Kentucky and North Carolina, Campbell said. By staying in local hotels, dining at area res taurants and buying goods from local stores, the tour nament will have between $1 million and $1.2 million direct economic impact, Campbell said. The hotels are pretty packed because of this tournament, said Nick Patel, owner and manager of five area hotels, includ ing the Comfort Suites. Lake City hotels are usually busy from summer vacationers, but this week end hotels are at 90 per cent occupancy, he said. Federal and state work ers are also staying in hotels to help with disaster recovery after Tropical Storm Debby, he said. Sports events are great, which is why the hotel industry has supported improvements to the complex to make sure it continues to attract teams, Patel said. Its definitely a good thing for Lake City, Patel said. This is the third time Jacksonville Storm has held an event at the com plex, Campbell said, but this weekends will be the largest so far. Location has a lot to do with the teams contin ued use of the Southside Complex, he said. Lake City is centrally located with a good supply of close hotels, Campbell said. The complex itself has 12 fields, adequate parking and ample restrooms. County landscaping and recreation departments do an excellent job maintain ing the park, he said. Jacksonville doesnt have a complex that has as many fields as we do in one location, Campbell said. Past tournaments at the Southside Recreation Complex have been out standing experiences and the organization plans on using the complex in the future, Marsh said. We are probably gonna stay down here for as long as we can, he said. congregation used a bass boat to get the family to safety. The church member is actually hous ing the seven people and their animals, Tompkins said. It took several hours and we were working in the midst of the rain as well. Following the storm, church members continued to help people in the community who were isolated by standing water. Weve done several food and medi cine runs for people that were roadwise flooded their houses were fine but they could not leave because they drove cars, he said. We had a canoe that we were using last week to canoe across some of those points to be able to take food and medicine to people. The canoe also came in handy when a woman who works in Gainesville had to get her child from a babysitter whose home was surrounded by floodwaters. We reunited them and that was kind of a cool day, he said. Tompkins also worked on helping a local widow rid her home of flood dam aged furniture and carpet on his wedding anniversary, July 4. Instead of celebrating, I ended up doing that all day swinging a hammer and rip ping out carpet, he said. An estimated 20 church members took part in rescue and recovery efforts during and following the storm in Columbia and Suwannee counties. Several guys, the day after the storm, actually took the day off from work because there was that much of a need, he said. We felt it was important to help the community because thats what the church is about. Tompkins also noted that he was impressed how local churches pulled together during the storm. It was amazing to see the sacrifices of people, he said. A lot of these guys left families at home and it was still storming. Its been impressive to see the generosity of the church. I had pastors and friends from other churches that messaged me asking how they could help, he added. So in addi tion to our 20 (members) there was another 30-plus church members from various churches that allowed us to serve so many people. Churches like Christian Heritage and Orchard come to mind as providing man-power and resources. Congregation members have also taken the self initiative to help in recovery work and efforts and are volunteering with team members from the Georgia Baptist Convention Disaster Relief Team. Weve worked in houses doing carpet removal, dry wall removal and whatever else weve had to do to get the house dry, Tompkins said. Were just trying to assist them in their work and send volunteers. I knew FEMA, Red Cross and all those people would be here at some point, but to me its a churchs responsibility to take care of its responsibility. Were here and we need to be first on the ground to help these people. We were able to accomplish a lot in the past few weeks but it could not have been done alone. I just want to be clear that it was through the faithful service of the volunteers from the church that made it all possible.

In his inaugural address, he said he was willing to extend a hand if you are will-ing to unclench your fist. Over and over, Irans rulers have demonstrated that they are not willing. The president should reach out again -but this time to the Iranian people, not those who oppress them. Irans economy is crumbling. The energy-rich nation today produces only half as much oil as it did before the 1979 revolution. Mismanagement is the main rea-son. But because of American and European sanctions, exports of the oil the regime does manage to produce are down by 40 percent compared with a year ago. On July 1, a European oil embargo went into effect. Tens of millions of barrels of unsold Iranian oil are already being stored in tankers offshore. Theres no room to store more. Irans currency, the rial, is down by half. Consumer prices have risen by an estimated 40 percent. Unemployment is rising, too, especially among the young. The American president needs to explain to ordinary Iranians why this is happening to them, why it will get worse, and who is to blame. He might begin by noting that negotiations between Iran and the West have gone nowhere because Irans rulers have been unwilling to halt a nuclear weap-ons program that egregiously violates international law. And last week, Irans Majlis speaker, Ali Larijani, issued yet another threat to America, Europe and Israel: Today, the time has come for the disappearance of the West and the Zionist regime -which are two dark spots in the present era -from the face of the universe. But this, too, happened last week: Irans state television news published an online poll show-ing 63 percent of Iranians favor abandoning the nuclear program in exchange for lifting sanctions. Authorities quickly pulled those results down but screenshots prove they were there. Saba Farzan, a German-Iranian expert on the Islamic Republic, told my colleague, Benjamin Weinthal: For nearly a decade, the Iranian regime and its apolo-gists around the globe have cre-ated a myth that Irans civil soci-ety stands behind the regimes nuclear program. Now, that myth has been fortunately buried once and forever -ironically, through a poll the Iranian regime estab-lished itself. The real Iranian problem is not nuclear weapons, any more than the real problem in Europe in the 1940s was Zyclon B. The real problem is the Jihadist regime that embraces a doctrine of Islamic supremacy, bellicosity and oppression. As sanctions bite more deeply, and Irans rulers talk threatening-ly of the Wests disappearance while illegally assembling weap-ons that could facilitate achieving that goal, the least an American president should do is explain to the Iranian people the crisis their rulers are fomenting. n Clifford D. May is president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a policy institute focusing on ter-rorism and Islamism. Email cliff(at)defenddemocracy.org. N ot enough outrage in your life? Follow the news closely, and youll find more than enough stories to stoke outrage. But one news item this week hit me in a part of my soul I heretofore did not know existed and one where I did not know I could harbor that much outrage. Its apparently a cellphone video obtained exclusively and posted online by the Reuters news agency, showing Taliban fighters executing a woman accused of adultery. A tiny, unarmed woman shrouded in Taliban-dictated shrouds squats in a muddy patch on a dirt road. Her back is facing a crowd of armed, sneering men -Taliban members. She is not allowed to speak the entire time. The camera also shows a hundred or more villagers, all male, standing in the dirt streets that crisscross the barren hillside. They are hanging out of crude, low apartment buildings. The Taliban do not allow women to leave home unes-corted. This is one of myriad freedoms routinely denied to women, whose meager, miser-able existences are lived as little more than sex slaves and brood mares. I cannot imagine a worse fate in this day and age than to be a girl born under Taliban control, powerless, penniless, abused and dismissed. The governor of Parwan Province, where the murder took place, told CNN the woman was 22 years old and married to a Taliban command-er. She was accused of adultery. Women under Islamic hardline rule are frequently accused of adultery they did not commit. Men who have in fact raped a woman will get her charged with adultery to place the focus for revenge on the woman, not the man. There have even been situations in which a jealous husband accuses his wife of adultery and sees to her execu-tion when she has committed no crime. The tape concludes with one man saying, Allah warns us not to get close to adultery because its the wrong way. Another says, Its the command of Allah that she be executed. A mili-tant takes an automatic rifle and stands perhaps a foot away from the womans back. He fires nine shots into her and the crowd erupts in a series of cheers. There is a manhunt on for the members of this kanga-roo court, and with any luck Afghanistan troops will find the men responsible. Its too bad, in a way, that Afghanistan will give the perpetrators a fairer disbursement of justice than the Taliban gave to the woman they slaughtered. I wish the United States government would take more seri-ously the treatment of women in other societies. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, much to her credit, has taken womens rights to a new level as a matter of U.S. foreign policy. A societys attitude toward its women, and a governments treatment of them, speak vol-umes. The Talibans outrageous cruelty toward this woman mer-its more serious intervention on our part. n Bonnie Erbe, a TV host, writes this column for Scripps Howard News Service. Email bonnie.scrippshoward(at)gmail.com. A s much of the nation broils under the merciless July sun, the Obama administration cant resist the urge to burn cash on green energy projects. Each time one of these solar-energy firms flames out, American taxpayers get singed. Even a sundial would indicate its quit-ting time. The latest to fail is Abound Solar, a Colorado solar-panel manufacturer. The firm filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liq-uidation on July 2, two years after being awarded a $400 mil-lion stimulus loan guarantee. President Obama personally touted the loan during a 2010 radio address called A Solar Recovery. That was during Recovery Summer, when the administration shoveled $831 billion into the federal spending furnace, which was supposed to ignite the American economy by creating millions of jobs. Instead, unemployment has been stuck above 8 percent for 40 months, and for many, the American dream has gone up in smoke. Abound Solar joins a growing list of Energy Department renewable-energy loan recipi-ents gone bad. Others include the solar firm Solyndra, which triggered an uproar over gov-ernment waste when it entered bankruptcy protection last August after pocketing $535 million in federal loan guaran-tees. Beacon Power went belly-up after receiving $43 million. Battery maker Ener1, which was awarded $118.5 million, has closed its doors, and A123 has undergone layoffs after tak-ing $249 million. Its not house money Mr. Obama is betting on renewable energy but dollars ripped away from hardworking Americans trying to save for an increas-ingly doubtful future for their families. For him to squander more funds on unviable, unaf-fordable projects when the nation is in danger of slipping back into recession is to under-mine the American dream. Presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney should make it clear he would end the green fantasy if elected in November. T he Army announced this week that it was ending its sponsorship of NASCAR racing. At the same time, a struggle con-tinues in Congress over whether the military ser-vices should be permitted to underwrite any sporting events at all. The defense appropriations bill contains an amendment that bans military spending to spon-sor professional or semi-profes-sional motorsports, fishing, mixed martial arts, wrestling or other sporting events or competitors other than high-school sports. The amendment was co-sponsored by leftist Rep. Betty McCollum, Minnesota Democrat, and Tea-Party-backed Rep. Jack Kingston, Georgia Republican. For Mrs. McCollum, the amendment is part of an effort to demilitarize sports. For Mr. Kingston, it is a matter of fiscal responsibility. As a fiscal measure, the legislation would have modest impact. The Army budgeted $16.1 million for sports spon-sorship last year; the Navy and Marine Corps combined budgeted $6.5 million; and the Air Force will spend $2.6 mil-lion. The National Guard has the largest sports underwrit-ing effort at $53.9 million. All together, this represents about one hours worth of annual defense budget expenditures, or a third of a Joint Strike Fighter. The defense budget wont be balanced by scraping military decals off NASCAR racers. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. Buck McKeon, California Republican, is leading the effort to strip the sports-sponsorship ban from the bill, and the Rules Committee last month gave the green light for a floor vote on whether to do that. The Armys announcement to end NASCAR support may be a pre-emptive move to hold onto the funding should another planned amend-ment commit sports-sponsor-ship money to deficit reduction instead. Fiscal conservatives do have a point regarding the need to curb wasteful spending, but Americas Fortune 500 compa-nies rely on those 200 mile-per-hour billboards because they work. Spending to ensure our all-volunteer force is the best it can be could turn out to be cost effective. The pertinent question isnt the amount of the expenditures but whether they achieve the measurable goals of promoting military service and attracting recruits. A House committee report noted the importance of using marketing and advertis-ing, such as motorsports and extreme-sports sponsorship, for the purposes of recruiting qualified youth to serve in the military and to maintain a posi-tive presence with influencers. Such sporting events attract the same young, predominately male demographic that recruit-ers are seeking. NASCAR fans are 1.5 times as likely as the general population to serve in the military, and the Army estimates sponsorship of racing produces 46,000 leads per year. Those on the left who oppose the militarization of sports object to service sponsorship precisely because it works. If Congress is going to cut government sponsorship of sporting events, its only fair to cut off the much more sizable federal appropriation for enter-tainment approved by the left. If NASCAR ads go, so should the subsidy for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Call that a target of opportunity. Bonnie Erbebonnieerbe@compuserve.com Cliff MaySelling themilitary services

The mosquito population is normally heavy this time of the year any-way, after the summer rains come and the tem-perature goes up, Lander said, but were seeing an increased number due to the amount of rainfall and the amount of stormwater we still have standing. Lander said officials are focusing on getting the larvicide into areas with standing water so the mosquito larvae will not develop into adults. With an increased mosquito population also comes the threat of mos-quito-borne illnesses, such as West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. With or without the storm we still would have been worried about the diseases, Lander said. This time of year is the time of year when mos-quito activity is at its high-est. Mosquitoes are most active during the hours around dawn and dusk. People who must be outside at those times should dress appropriately to prevent mosquito bites. Health care officials sug-gest using repellent, preferably ones that con-tain DEET. Officials also advise residents to dump any standing water in con-tainers on their property. Its bad when workers trying to do (damage) assessment work have to get back in the truck because the mosquito population is so heavy, Lander said. Lander said recording 1,000 mosquitoes in a trap allows local govern-ments to submit a request for public assistance and reimbursement of funds from state government. ASSAULT: Mosquito Continued From Page 1AAnything over 1,000 mosquitoes caught in a trap would warrant spray-ing of the area, Lander said.
FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, July 13-14, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V A s you may know, the Four Gospels present the Lord Jesus in four different ways. Matthew presents Christ as the King; Mark, Christ as the Servant; Luke, Christ as the Man; John, Christ in His Deity. Johns purpose in the Fourth Gospel was, as he plainly declares, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name (20:31). Therefore, he presents Christ as the Son of God (1:34, 49; etc.) who was sent from God (3:2; 6:46; etc.) and always spoke the message God gave Him (3:34; 7:16-17; etc.). In accordance with the purpose of this Gospel, the words believe and life, and the titles Son and Son of God, are used many more times than in the Synoptic Gospels. Other charac teristic words of John are true, truth, love, witness, and world (Greek kosmos). John alone records the great I am declarations of Christ (6:35; 8:12; 10:7; 11; 11:25; 14:6) and gives the sayings of Christ introduced by the solemn Most assur edly, literally, Amen, amen (1:51; 5:19,24,25, etc.). Moreover, he alone reports the great contro versy between Christ and His enemies (Chapters 712). (Scofield note.) John, the disciple who Jesus loved writing in his gospel presents Christ as Incarnated Son of God who was in the beginning. John 1:1 says: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Here we quickly learn that Christ is God in the Second Person. Verse 3 says that All things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made. He always was. Then in Chapter 1:14, John says: And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. The belief we have in Jesus will determine our salvation. John 14:6: Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Notice he said, the way, not a way. According to a Rose Publishing publication, research done in 2005 states what other groups teach about Jesus and who Jesus is: Jehovahs Witnesses teaches that Jesus is not God. Before he lived on earth, he was Michael the archangel. Jehovah made the universe through him. On earth he was a man who lived a perfect life. After dying on a stake (not a cross) he was resurrected as a spirit; his body was destroyed. He is not coming again; he returned invisibly in 1914 in spirit. Very soon, he and the angels will destroy all non-Jehovahs Witnesses. Mormonism teaches Jesus is a separate god (note little g) from the Father (Elohim). He was created a spirit child by the father and mother in heaven, and is the elder brother of all men. His body was created through sexual union between Elohim and Mary. Jesus was married. His death on the cross does not provide full atonement for all sins. Next week in Part II we will discover who oth ers believe Jesus is. The most important question this week is: Who do you say Jesus is? Is He your Savior? Is He Lord of your life? n Hugh G. Sherrill, an ordained minister and Bible teacher at Eastside Baptist Church, is avail able for revivals. The Gospel according to John Part 1 BIBLE STUDIES Hugh Sherrill Jr. firstname.lastname@example.org T he word cour age is defined as the capac ity to meet danger or difficulty with firmness; bravery. The word capac ity caught my attention because we often speak of courage or bravery as something a person has rather than something we all have the ability to receive. In order to extend our understanding of this definition, think about the words encourage and discourage. Encourage means to inspire courage, while discourage means to deprive of courage. Encouragement, as well as discouragement, is accom plished through what is believed to be true. One of my favorite Bible stories that illustrate this truth concerns an Israelite named Gideon. God called Gideon a mighty warrior and sent him to battle the Midianites, the oppres sive enemy of Israel. The catch here is that Gideon did not believe himself to be a warrior at all, let alone a mighty one! He was discouraged to put it mildly. Take a look at how God dealt with Gideons lack of courage: During that night the Lord said to Gideon, Get up, go down against the camp, because I am going to give it into your hands. If you are afraid to attack, go down to the campand listen to what they are saying. Afterward, you will be encouraged to attack the camp (Judges 7:9-11) First of all, I love the fact that before verse 11 ends, Gideon was on his way. This confirms his fear and discouragement up to this point, but also his capac ity for courage. He went to find it! Second, where would this encouragement come from? Remember that encouragement comes through what we believe to be true, and Gideon heard a new truththe Midianites were afraid of him! (Continue reading verses 13-15) Knowing the truth gave Gideon the courage he needed to advance to victory. If we arent armed with the truth, discouragement can be a vicious enemy. As we turn to chapter 6 in our Nehemiah series, our resident bad guys are at it again. Seeing the wall progressing so quickly was more than they could stand, so Sanballat, Tobiah and Geshem launch a cam paign to steal Nehemiahs courage. After sending four different messages requesting a meeting, to which Nehemiah continu ally refused, a threaten ing letter was received. The letter implied that Nehemiah was plotting a revolt against the King of Persia, and if he didnt want this to get back to the king, Nehemiah really needed to meet with them. Attempted blackmail. Except it doesnt work when there is nothing to hide. I love Nehemiahs response, Nothing like what you are saying is happening; you are just making it up out of your head. (Nehemiah 6:8) Nehemiah knew this was nothing more than a bluff, and he had nothing to fear because God had granted favor with the King. Nehemiah refused to be discouraged because he knew and believed the truth. Gideon was encour aged because he heard and believed the truth. This holds true for us as well no matter what we are struggling with or in what area we are seeking victory, the truth is that God has a plan and purpose for every life. Fight discouragement with the truth of Gods Word, and be encouraged knowing that when we seek the Lord, He will let us find Himbecause every heart matters.

I was 7 years old, and we lived in Alexandria, Virginia. Dad moved around so often, it was difficult to develop close, lasting friends. One friend I have remem-bered through the years is Haze. Memories are a bit blurry now, sad I cannot even remember his last name. We lived right next door to each other, and shared happy times together. We went to Maury Elementary School, played in the snow during the winter. We dug in our sand pile in my back yard making tunnels and hills in the sand. We enjoyed playing with plastic army men and having pretend wars in the sand pile. This was during days when kids didnt have to be entertained, and didnt need expensive toys and electronic games. These were good days, we just didnt know how good they were. Time passed dad got another preach-ing job, we moved to Beaumont, Texas, and I lost touch with Haze. Of course I thought of him, but new places, new people, new friends hap-pened. Years passed, we grew up, I wondered whatever happened to my friend Haze. One day, I took a vacation and decided to go back to Alexandria. I drove by the old Elementary school, and Radio Tower Hill, where we as kids had gone down on sleds, nearly killing some by-standers. I went to our old home where my brother Ed had lost seven teeth thanks to riding on my back part way down the stairs. (He fell the other half way down.) Next door was my friend Hazes house. I went and knocked on the door. His mother came to the door and at first did not recognize me. I said. Its me, Jack (she called me Jackie then) of course she was happy to see me. I walked in and we sat together in a living room where Haze and I once had spent time together playing when it was rainy outside. Where is Haze? I asked. His mothers face changed, it seemed that the joy just left her face. Haze was an only son, and was her pride and joy. He had grown up, was drafted to go to Viet Nam. Did he make it back? I asked. She said that he did. She told me that Haze had come home from the war, and received the welcome that so many others received. For months, he was terribly depressed she said. Then the terrible news, Soon after that he committed suicide. My friend was dead, and I never knew. Sometimes I wonder what he thought, and why life had been so dark for him. Where was the justice in all this? Fighting a war that few supported. Perhaps he wondered why he was spared. The emptiness is hard to explain when I think of Haze. He deserved bet-ter, they all did, and do. The pain of Viet Nam, I never knew because I was passed over, but it still hurts. That is why when I meet Veterans, I say, Thank you, thank you for what you did. I never got to say good bye to Haze, but August 28, 2010 my wife (Wiwik) and I along with some friends, went to the Restoring Honor rally in Washington, DC, while there I walked up to The Wall and laid my hands on the hallowed stone, and said Thank you, and good-bye Haze, my friend. Honor to whom honor is due. W hat do we really mean when we say that we are praying to God? What does it mean to pray to God? It would seem that these would be no-duh types of questions. But lets think about it. As we define the word praying it has the mean-ing of presently offering a devout petition, praise, or thanks. It means that we are in the process of per-forming the action pray. So in our title, praying would mean that we are currently offering a devout petition, or praise, or giving thanks to God. But who is God? Again that seems almost like a no-duh type question. Everyone would say that everyone knows who God is? But do we really? Lets think about who this being is to whom we are making a devout petition, praise or thanks. By looking at the beginning of the Bible we would see that God is the creator of everything that is in the world. We would see that from nothing He made everything. The apostle Peter says that by His word the world continues to exist (2 Peter 3:7). If we really stop and think about what we are doing when we make a devout petition to God, we are asking the creator of the world to do something for us. The cre-ator of the world! Talk about power being on your side. Talk about having a person with pull on your side. Truly the words of Paul are true, if God is for us, who can be against us? Think about another description of God, namely God is love. When I am praying to God I am talking to the person who exempli-fies the very essence of love. By His actions we judge every other action to see if it qualifies as love. So when I am praying to God, I am talking to the Supreme Being who will always act out of love. His actions will always be founded upon love for me and those for whom I am praying. He will never respond out of envy or jealousy; hatred or covet-ousness; spite or revenge. He will always have my best interest at heart. Another quality of this being to which I am praying is His justice. When I pray to God I must constantly think about the fact that God must be just with everyone. Consider this example. Two Christians are interested in a car; one wants to buy one and the other wants to sell one. Both of them pray to God for assistance in this trans-action. As everyone knows the seller wants to get as much as he can and the buyer wants to give up as little as he can. So, how is God going to answer their prayers? I have no clue. I am glad that I do not have to really answer this ques-tion. However, I believe that He answers each Christians devout petition. The last quality that I would like for us to medi-tate upon is the wisdom that we can get from God. James (1:5) tells his readers that if any man lacks wisdom let him ask of God. When I consider this statement, I know that I need help from God in this area. I know that I need the wisdom that will come from God. But why would the creator of the world and all that is in it give wisdom to me? Why would the being who per-sonifies love the most give wisdom to me? Why would the person who is always just and fair give wisdom to me? Praying to God is an awesome thing! But the person to whom we are praying is even more awesome! Every day, the Christian has the privilege and opportunity spending time praying to God. Hope you have recent-ly been praying to God! n Carlton G.

CHURCH CALENDAR NEW ORLEANS (AP) A former New Orleans pastor was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in federal prison for stealing nearly $1 million in disas-ter loan payments meant to rebuild his church after Hurricane Katrina. Toris Young, 41, apologized for his mistakes and bad choices before U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier hand-ed down a sentence that was roughly twice that recommended under federal sentencing guidelines. Today I come sorrowful. I come regretful. I come with my heart poured out, asking this court to please have mercy, said Young, who made head-lines in recent years for leading a failed effort to recall a Louisiana con-gressman and for planning an anti-crime campaign with a rapper awaiting a murder trial. His plea didnt sway Barbier, who said he had considered imposing an even longer sentence. Young had faced a maximum of 30 years in prison. You really stole from your own church, from your own parishioners, the judge said. Theres no church now, so theyre really your victims, too, along with the federal government. Barbier also ordered Young to pay $963,900 in restitution to the Small Business Administration. Young, who pleaded guilty in January to theft of government funds and mail fraud, submitted fraudulent invoices and receipts to the SBA after the 2005 storm to obtain the loan for the Bible Way Baptist Church. Instead of using the money to repair damage from the 2005 hurricane, Young spent the money on jewelry, vehicles, real estate, designer clothes and other personal expenses. The church property was vacant with overgrown weeds when the SBA checked in 2009 to see how he spent the money. The lot is still vacant to this day, with nothing to indicate a church once stood there. Bishop Joseph Walker, a Harvey pastor who has known Young since he was a child, told Barbier that Young helped organize relief efforts in the commu-nity after Katrina. Walker said he was surprised when he learned Young had tripped and fell. We know that God will forgive him, but we are here today to ask for grace and mercy and leniency, Walker said. He has done so much good in our community. Young wont start serving the 10year prison sentence until after he completes two other federal prison sentences stemming from unrelated fraud convictions in New Orleans and Mississippi. He was scheduled to be released from prison in September 2013 before Barbier imposed the 10-year term. Young said prison has helped him turn his life around after hitting rock bottom. Today I can say that I am a new man and a new preacher. And I will never look back, he said. Barbier said Young has at least nine sets of previous convictions dating back to 1990 on charges that include forgery, identity theft and issuing worthless checks. Thats quite an amazing past history of almost a lifetime as an adult of engaging in fraudulent and criminal conduct, the judge said. I just cant accept that if you are released from prison anytime soon that you are not going to soon revert back to your life-time of criminal conduct. In 2009, Young led an unsuccessful effort to recall U.S. Rep. Anh Joseph Cao, R-La., for voting against President Barack Obamas stimulus package. That same year, he joined rapper Corey Miller, known as C-Murder, in announcing a plan to curb violence in the New Orleans area. Miller was later convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison for a teenagers 2002 shooting death. Rev. Toris Young speaks during a press conference in New Orleans. Young was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison for stealing nearly $1 million in disaster loan payments meant to rebuild his church after Hurrican Katrina. Ex-pastor gets 10 years for stealing $1M ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK (AP) A leader of the effort to build an Islamic community cen-ter near the World Trade Center on Wednesday thanked the New York Police Department for com-ing to his aid during the furor over the project when he and the mosque were receiving death threats. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said at the departments annual pre-Ramadan con-ference that he was forced to move because of the threats two years ago, but the department gave care and attention to the mosque, to the workers, to him and his family. I want to publicly express my deep grati-tude, he said. Rauf helped come up with the idea for the center, called Park51, and promot-ed it amid fierce criticism because of its location. Rauf now has a reduced role in the project, which is moving forward although nothing has been built yet. Plans called for replacing a defunct clothing store two blocks from the World Trade Center site with a 13to 16-story building that would hold athletic facili-ties, a day care center, art galleries, an auditorium, a 9/11 memorial and a prayer space with room for a con-gregation of about 1,000. Critics assailed the project as insensitive, saying it was improper for a Muslim institution to be located so close to the site of an attack by Islamic extremists. The furor dissipated following the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks last year. Rauf also said Wednesday that he understands the criticism over NYPD sur-veillance of Muslims, but he believes the department is doing a good job, and he welcomed the invitation to speak at the conference. The auditorium was full of Muslim leaders, despite the absence of some Muslim groups who said they were boycotting over prior reports by The Associated Press about police surveil-lance of neighborhoods and mosques since the attacks. The boycotting groups said in a joint statement that Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly had refused to meet with them and address their concerns. They said they were advo-cating accountability and oversight in curbing civil and human rights abuses by law enforcement agen-cies. Rauf said that boycotting did nothing to help the dialogue improve over Muslim relations in the United States, and encour-aged people to speak out. If something is done which is not perfect we need to speak to each other and help each other find a way, he said. The prob-lem is when we boycott then we remove ourselves from being at the table.

Kirkman fielded a ground ball from Joe Mauer and sprinted toward first base to make the toss for an out. Trainer Jamie Reed came out and Kirkman left the game after throwing 13 pitches. Kirkman has been on a roll since our last update. In his last three outings, all at home, he has thrown five scoreless innings. In a 7-2 win over Oakland on June 30, Kirkman finished the game with 2 13 innings of no-hit ball. He walked one and struck out one. In a 5-1 loss to Minnesota on July 6, Kirkman pitched one inning and gave up two hits with one strikeout. In the Sunday game, Kirkman got the final out in the ninth inning and the first out in the 10th after Texas scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth to send the game into extra innings. The Rangers won, 4-3, with a one-out run in the 13th inning. Since moving up from Triple A Round Rock, Kirkman has pitched 13 innings with 10 strikeouts, six walks and seven runs (five earned). His ERA is 3.46. Texas leads the AL West by four games over the Los Angeles Angels. At 52-34 the Rangers are one-half game behind the New York Yankees for the best record in the American League.

The club hosts the British Open golf tournam ent next week.Parity in golf showing itself at majorsBy DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressGolf rarely has been this mysterious when it comes to the majors. Tiger Woods used to be counted on to win at least one major a year and contend in the others. And while he is back to being the betting favorite, the British Open will be the 17th major since Woods won his last one. Rory McIlroy, the heir apparent, has taken such a peculiar turn in the last two months that it was cause for minor celebration, if not major relief, when he sim-ply made the cut in the Irish Open. Luke Donald and Lee Westwood, the two play-ers who have been atop the world ranking the most over the last two years, have never won a major. So when the British Open begins July 19 at Royal Lytham & St. Annes on the Lancashire coast of England, there really is only Woods no longer counted on for tourney wins. BRITISH continued on 10B By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comLIVE OAK The Fort White 15-under baseball had a successful start to its quest for consecutive state championships. Coming off a win in the Small League State Tournament, Fort White opened with a 5-2 victory over Fort Caroline in the Florida Babe Ruth Baseball 2012 North State Tournament 15U. The 15U tournament is at the Suwannee High baseball field in Live Oak. Julington Creek beat Tallahassee, 6-5, so Fort White and Julington Creek will play at 9 a.m. today. Tallahassee and Fort Caroline play an elimina-tion game at noon. The bottom of the bracket has Marietta Bullsbay vs. Palatka and Bradford vs. Suwannee. The winners play at noon today. Willie Carter blasted a two-out home run in the first inning to give Fort White an early lead. It was the only tally through three innings as Fort Whites Rhett Willis and Fort Carolines Josh Allen dueled on the mound. Fort White took control with a three-spot in the bot-tom of the fourth inning. Carter led off and was hit by a pitch. Trace Wilkinson walked and Austin Dupree hit into a force play at third. After another out, Alex Mitchell slapped a single to center field to score Wilkinson. Dupree was caught in a rundown between second and third and was safe when the ball was dropped on the tag. Mitchell moved to second on the play. J.J. Cohrs poked a single to right field to bring in Dupree and Mitchell also scored on the play when the throw from the field sailed over the catchers head. Cohrs moved to second and stole third as Jordan Harrington walked, but both were stranded. Fort Caroline ran itself out of a big inning and a chance to tie in the top of the fifth. Michael Newman whizzed a shot by Willis head and into center field to lead off the inning. Newman held up to see if a soft liner by Cooper Cain would get through. It did, but Newman went into sec-ond base standing up and was called out on the throw from the outfield. Allen followed with a single and Ryan Knowles walked to load the bases. Tanner Gallivan lined a shot to left field that Brent Beach caught and his throw doubled Allen off second base. Fort White padded its lead in the bottom of the inning as Wilkinson dou-bled with two outs and Dupree singled him home on a hit and run. Beach ripped a shot off the third baseman for a hit, but there was no further damage. Carter relieved Willis in the sixth inning and walked Cray Bennett and Jarrod Scott. Wilkinson took over on the mound and Jordyn JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterWillie Carter provided the first run for Fort White with a h ome run in the first inning of the Babe Ruth Baseball 201 2 North State Tournament 15U.

Whenever they get 11 Hall of Famers you call and ask me.Jordan: 1992 Dream Team better than 2012 USA squadBy STEVE REEDAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Michael Jordan said theres no way Kobe Bryant and this years USA Olympic basketball team couldve beaten the 1992 Dream Team. Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday that he laughed I absolutely laughed when hearing Bryants comments that the squad training in Las Vegas could take Jordan and company. Jordan said theres no comparison which team is better. For him to compare those two teams is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done, Jordan said prior to playing in a celebrity golf tourna-ment in Charlotte. Jordan said the 1992 team, which included 11 future Hall of Famers and won its six Olympic games by an average of more than 43 points en route to capturing the gold medal, was a better overall team largely because of the experience it put on the floor. I heard Kobe say we were not athletic, said a smiling Jordan as he sat in a golf cart puffing on his cigar while waiting to tee off. But we were smart. He said we were too old, but I was 29 and in the prime of my career. Pip (Scottie Pippen) was 26 or 27, (Charles) Barkley was 29, Patrick (Ewing) was 29 and Chris Mullin was 29. Almost everybody was still in their twenties. Jordans response came after Bryant told reporters in Las Vegas that this years team could pull out a win against the Dream Team if they faced each other in their primes. Bryant said this years team has a bunch of racehorses, players who are incredibly athletic while the Dream Team consisted mainly of players at the tail end of their careers. Bryants comments received immediate and sharp rebuttal from some members of the Dream Team, including Barkley. Jordan joined in on Thursday. Most of us were in the prime of our careers, at a point where athleticism doesnt really matter, said Jordan, the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. You have to know how to play the game.U.S. Olympic basketball team starts slowLAS VEGAS LeBron James was stretched out against a wall Wednesday, answering a few questions before lacing up his Nikes. Carmelo Anthony was doing the same thing in the cor-ner of the gym, while Kobe Bryant went about his busi-ness across the way. Talent was never going to be a problem for the U.S. mens basketball team head-ing to London as defend-ing gold medal champi-ons. Never has been, ever since the Dream Team got together 20 years ago and changed the way the world plays basketball. We understand why were here, James said. Were all superstars on our respective teams. Now we all have to be superstars on this team. Assuming that happens, any worries about bringing the gold home from London should pretty much vanish. Sure, Spain figures to be tough and the Russians and Argentinians will pose challenges. And there are some who question the lack of height inside on this team. But the U.S. roster is so deep and athletic that the early chatter is that this team could be even better than the last gold medal team even without Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, both key perform-ers in Beijing, along with that teams only true center, Dwight Howard. We have the potential, James said. But well see.

Brad Keselowski 575; behind -101 10. Clint Bowyer 572; behind -104 Tony Stewarts fourth career victory in the July race at Daytona, the 47th of his career and the third this season,have him looking like a driver who could repeat as Sprint Cup champion,which would give him four Cup titles. Stewart said in his winners interview that hes been very pleased with his teams performance over the first half of the season. I think there were some races that we lost some opportunities on, but I think there were races that we capitalized on that we havent been able to in the past,he said.I think on the average,were really looking good right now On the average,I feel like were making gains. He said he was especially proud of his teams performance in qualifying at Daytona,even though his time was disallowed because a hose came loose.He had to start the race from 42nd position instead of on the outside pole where he originally qualified.His Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Ryan Newman was third,just a fraction of a second behind him. I think qualifying was what I was most proud of for the weekend,and even though we lost our time,having those two cars come here and be second and third separated by only eight thousandths of a second shows how good a job the guys did at our race shop,he said. Newman went on to finish fifth in the 400,breaking a string of disappointing runs that saw him finish no better than 12th in the 11 races between his win at Martinsville and his top-five at Daytona. It was big for us,especially with the stretch coming up,Newman said,adding that hes especially looking forward to this weeks race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He said the Loudon track is a place which we at Stewart-Haas have done an awesome job at in the past. And he said that while he left Daytona trailing Joey Logano by one point in the race for a wildcard Chase berth,hes optimistic going forward. We are still in plenty of contention there with the No.20 car right now,he said. A trip back to Daytona International Speedway for the traditional start of the second half of the NASCAR season has become a time to reflect on the good and bad of the first half of the year. And while Saturdays Coke Zero 400 at Daytona had plenty of excitement late in the race due to multi-car crashes and cautions, the conversation at Daytona before the race was about the lack of such at many races this year.The first half of the 400 was relatively uneventful as well. The week before at Kentucky Speedway, track owner Bruton Smith proposed mandatory caution periods or timeouts at certain intervals in the race,with the idea that the double-file restarts that followed those cautions would provide action and drama that has been missing in many races. Call it what you want,but youve got to have caution flags,Smith told reporters at his Kentucky track.That creates excitement. You cant just sit there with nothing happening.It ruins the event.Its damaging to our sport. NASCAR chairman Brian France said in his mid-season session with the press at Daytona that Smiths ideas wont fly. Its a very clear line to us,he said.What were not going to do are gimmicky things. Ive heard we ought to throw a caution every ten laps.Thats nonsense.We wont do gimmicky things.But well do things that incentivize performance,incentivize wins.That we are open to.The wild card does that.It does it in an authentic way. NASCAR has,in recent seasons,added double-file restarts,the free pass rule,greenwhite-checkered-flag finishes and even the Chase format and several modifications to it in attempts to spice up the action. Some say that many caution flags thrown for small pieces of debris on the track were actually displayed to break up dull stretches of racing. Drivers asked about Smiths mandatory caution idea generally said they were opposed to it. I just think when we start using cautions to make the race more exciting, I think thats going down a slippery slope,Carl Edwards said.I dont think its good for the sport.Thats my opinion from where I sit.That doesnt mean its right,thats just my opinion. He said that auto racing,by its nature,isnt going to have a Game Sevenmoment every time. Thats what makes some races great,he said.If you start affecting the competition like that,that is analogous to stopping a basketball game if the score gets too far apart and putting the score back even. That,to me,is not what auto racing is about.If you let these races play out naturally, and let the racing be racing,sometimes there are some wild things that happen,and things happen that are unexpected,and thats what makes that true,real drama that happens every once in a while. And sometimes races dont play out that way,and thats OK,too,he said. If a guy wins by three laps,well,he was meant to win by three laps,and you dont want to take that away from that guy and that team,he said. Edwards said that doing things any other way cheapens the sport. You cant fabricate competition,he said. Thats whats so great about our sport.Theres a whole other world there politics and the real world where everybody is changing the rules all the time to try and get an advantage. We might as well just leave sports alone,and may the best man win. NOTEBOOK A.J. Allmendinger suspended A.J.Allmendinger,temporarily suspended from NASCAR after he didnt pass a random drug test,faces an uncertain future in the sport. Allmendinger,who has a one-year deal to drive the No.22 Dodge for Penske Racing,was suspended just hours before the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.He was replaced by Sam Hornish Jr.,who flew in from Charlotte,N.C.,and arrived at the track just minutes before the race.Hornish finished 33rd after a blown tire took him out of contention. NASCARs Vice President of Racing Operations Steve ODonnell read a statement to members of the media at Daytona,but did not answer questions. ODonnells statement was:Driver A.J. Allmendinger has been temporarily suspended from NASCAR competition based upon a notification of a positive A test NASCAR received from the Medical Review Officer as stated in Section 19-11B (6, 7) of the NASCAR Substance Abuse Policy. Pursuant to the rule book,Allmendinger has the opportunity to request within the next 72 hours that his B sample be tested. NASCAR will follow its policies and procedures set forth in the rule book in dealing with this matter. Its not Allmendingers first problem of that nature.In 2009,while driving for Richard Petty Motorsports,he was cited with drunk driving after a late-night traffic stop in North Carolina. He was given a suspended sentence,probation and community service after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of driving while impaired. Allmendingers Penske Racing team issued a brief statement.It read in part:NASCAR notified Penske Racing this afternoon that A.J. Allmendinger was administered a drug test earlier this week,and those results tested positive.NASCAR has a strict drug testing program that Penske Racing fully supports. Penske Racing will work with NASCAR through this process and its next steps. Crash scuttles Awesome Bill For a time during Saturdays race at Daytona, 56-year-old Bill Elliott was looking a lot like the Awesome Billof the early 1980s,the driver who once dominated races on NASCARs biggest and fastest tracks. Elliott,driving the No.50 Chevrolet for a Turner Motorsports team that was making its first Sprint Cup start,qualified seventh and ran third for a long stretch in the opening segment of the race. He was still in contention when he was collected in a multi-car crash on Lap 123 of 160. We were just a victim of the circumstances, he said.But man,I was proud of all those guys on Turner Motorsports and Walmart.Thats the best Ive run in a long time.The car drove so well.I could go anywhere on the race track and just wait around biding my time and just seeing where were going to play out at the end. He said the current rules make it much harder to race than it was back in the day. You could hardly pass,man,he said.I mean when I was running third there early on in the race,I ran every lap wide open and never came off the bottom.And thats kind of where you were. Elliott,who has made just one other start this season,at Talladega,said his opportunities to race are becoming less frequent,and any start could be his last.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JULY 13-14, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My son is 24 and was honorably dis-charged as a corporal after a four-year enlistment in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was deployed twice to Iraq. Since his return he has been attending community college, but he lacks the focus and is bored. He has recently announced that he would like to return to the military. When he approached the Marine recruiter to re-enlist, he was told hes ineligible due to tattoos on his arms. After four years of honorable and devoted service, this rejec-tion is insulting. He has announced to family that he will pursue enlistment in the French Foreign Legion next year. This is very distressing to me, and Im sick with worry about his well-being. I do not want him to go off to fight in a foreign military. Can you offer any words of wisdom? -WORRIED MOM IN GAINESVILLE, FLA. DEAR WORRIED MOM: Encourage your son to explore enlistment opportunities with other branches of the U.S. military regarding their tattoo policies. However, while you and I might con-sider his desire to join the French Foreign Legion to be an extreme overreac-tion to his rejection by the Marines, as an adult he has a right to make that choice. If he goes through with his plan, he may see less action than he would as a member of the U.S. military. While I cant make this easier for you as a par-ent, I do have this advice to offer. Tell your son it would be in his best inter-est to learn some basic French before he goes. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My twin sister and I have lived across the country from each other for many years, but have remained close through phone calls. Two years ago she began talk-ing politics, and we real-ized we differ on the topic. I asked her if we could not talk so much about the subject and just agree to disagree. Things were fine until she planned a visit to see me and also a friend who agrees politically with her. I told her she was welcome to use my car to see her friend, but I didnt want to go because I knew politics would be brought up. It made her very angry, and she ended up canceling her trip. We have continued our phone chats, and I stayed with her several days last year to celebrate our brothers birthday. But the bond we had is no longer there. I can feel her and my brother pulling away from me. Im sure its because of our political dif-ferences. I dont know how to turn things around. I have never argued with them, but feel they are making me an outsider. How can I get them back without compromising my own views? Twenty years ago, my sister and I differed on some religious points, and she wanted nothing to do with me for the next two years. It took our mothers death to get us back together. Help! -LOVES MY TWIN DEAR LOVES: While you and your twin were womb-mates, nowhere is it written that because of your twinship you must think in unison. For the time being, my advice is to calm down. This being an election year, feelings are running high. Keep the lines of communication open as far as your sister and brother will allow. After the election is over, your relationship may nor-malize. However, if it doesnt, then its important you remember that the experi-ences we have as we travel lifes path can turn even twins into very different people. Accept that, and your heart will be less fragile. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im 17 and hopelessly confused. Im currently in a long-distance relationship with someone I havent seen in person for several months. At first, I wasnt into him, but after we began talking over Skype and emailing, he told me he liked me, so I said I liked him, too -even though Im not physically attracted to him. I figured that since he lives so far away and theres no one at my school I could see myself liking, why make him feel bad by tell-ing the truth? Now hes coming to visit for a few days, and Im worried that I wont like him. Im his first girlfriend, and I think his parents are excited to see that he finally found someone. My mom tells me that hes a very nice boy and wont leave me like the rest of my egocentric exes. Hes just very immature and socially awkward. I thought I might eventually fall for him because hes smart, motivated and sweet -three things I value in a guy. What do I do about this? Is there something wrong with me? -HOPELESSLY CONFUSED IN SALT LAKE CITY DEAR CONFUSED: There is nothing wrong with you -you are 17 and not experienced. When the young man said he liked you, you should have told him that you like him for all the qualities you men-tioned, but as a FRIEND. When he comes to visit, if he tries to make the encounter romantic, level with him. If youre not attracted to him, it would be cruel to lead him on. Youre both still young and have many dating experi-ences ahead of you. In the future, please remember that honesty is the best policy. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My recently divorced, beautiful, intelligent daughter, Glynnis, is an executive with a global firm and has a high net worth. During her divorce she recon-nected with a high school friend who moved in with her. This friend is a jobless, obese, coarse man who has been divorced three times. Glynnis uses him as an errand/houseboy, chauffeur, bodyguard, handyman and general flunky. He will do anything she asks of him at any time. One can only assume he thinks he has won the lottery. This man is an embarrassment of monumental proportions. We live in another state and go to visit them. I am extremely uncomfortable with the bizarre image of a couple they present. At lunch, din-ner or out shopping with them, people actually gasp when they realize the two are together. I cannot relate to him. Conversing with him is hopeless. Of course, its my daughters business who she wants in her life. But Im disgusted with the entire scenario. Any suggestions? -GLYNNIS DAD DEAR DAD: Yes. Try harder to find SOMETHING you have in common with your daugh-ters companion, and you may start to understand what she sees in him. Right now hes serving a purpose. Having been through a divorce, she may want a man around who can perform all the jobs you listed. Or, she may just want someone she can control. If youre serious about his function as a bodyguard, suggest that if she feels threatened, she should talk to the police, who are trained to handle such matters. As you said, your daughter is intelligent. Its unlikely shell remarry anytime soon. So calm down and try to be less judgmental. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): A cash injection is apparent. Networking will inspire you to develop your ideas and move forward with your plans.

Box 1529Lake City, FL32055386.755.4100To: All interested Agencies, Groups and IndividualsThis is to give notice that Columbia County has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations at 24 Code of Federal Regulations 55.20 to determine the potential af-fect that its activity in the floodplain and/or wetland will have on the envi-ronment.The County intends to undertake a project to be funded by a Florida Small Cities Community Develop-ment Block Grant.The project ac-tivities include rehabilitation and re-placement of owner-occupied dwell-ing units for lowto moderate-in-come families within the unincorpo-rated area of the County.Only exist-ing houses will be rehabilitated or re-placed, there will be no new con-struction.It has been determined that no practi-cable alternative other than to proLegalceed with the work is available. This activity will have no significant im-pact on the environment for the fol-lowing reasons: the dwelling units to be rehabilitated or replaced already exist, there will be no new construc-tion activity outside of the existing dwelling unit footprint, unless the dwelling unit is relocated to move it out of the floodplain or wetland.Although the project is located in the 100-year floodplain and/or wetland, the improvements cannot be under-taken in any other location due to the scope of the project.There is, there-fore, no practicable alternative. The proposed improvements con-form to applicable floodplain protec-tion standards.The proposed action will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and residents of the community will benefit from the project.Only existing dwelling units belonging to lowto moderate-in-come families will be rehabilitated or replaced.Efforts will be made to mitigate if possible.Failure to pro-vide these improvements will result in the further deterioration of the dwelling units owned and occupied by lowto moderate-income fami-lies.Additional agencies involved in this project include the Florida Depart-ment of Economic Opportunity and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.Written comments must be received by Scarlet Parnell Frisina, in her ca-pacity as Chair of the Board of the County Commissionersat P.

10B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JULY 13-14, 2012 STORMS & OUTAGES Long before a storm or hurricane threatens, SVEC stands ready to respond. When the storm hits, our employees roll up their sleeves and go to work to restore power interrupted by the sorms fury. Customers who lose power should contact SVEC. When the call is answered, the location of the outage is recorded automatically by SVEC automated outage-reporting sysem. Customers can also speak directly to a company representative if available. SVEC brings in additional employees to respond to customer calls during major storms, and it has dramatically increased the number of incoming telephone lines for its outage-reporting system. But customers may experience busy signals and longer-than-normal waits during times of high call volumes. If someone in your home is dependent on medical equipment requiring electricity, make arrangements in advance for and alternative power source for emergencies. If rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home. Have an electrician inspect your system before turning the power back on after flooding. Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with wet hands, or while standing on a wet or damp surface. If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report its location. Avoid driving over downed power lines. Avoid puddles near downed power lines. Plug only individual appliances into portable generators. Never connect a generator to wall outlets, building wiring or your homes electrical system. If you require transportation assistance during an evacuation, register in advance with the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency Management in your county. To prepare for outages, it is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries for flashlights and radios. If you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use it in well-ventilated areas and only plug in individual appliances. Never connect a generator to a wall outlet of your home or buildings electrical system since that can cause damage to your equipment and can be a lifethreatening danger to your family, neighbors and repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and manage consumption by running it for only a few hours at a time. Prepare a list of essential items you would need in case you are evacuated from your home and have them readily available. Some of these items could include medications, insulin, contact lenses/supplies, extra eyeglasses and denture needs. If your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before reporting it to SVEC office in order to give our automatic equipment time to restore power. Listen to your local radio and TV stations for weather updates and information from SVEC. Here are a few tips to follow for your safety: Live Oak, FL 32060 Phone (386) 362-2226 605439-F BRITISH: Question is, Whos next? Continued From Page 1B INDIANS From Page 1B one logical question. Whos next? These days, the answer is pure guesswork. Fifteen players from five continents have won the last 15 majors, a stretch of parity not seen since golf was searching for a dom inant player in the mid1980s. Only three of those winners were among the top 10 in the world rank ing. Three of them were not in the top 50, and three others were not even in the top 100. It just shows how deep the level of competition is right now, Adam Scott said. A streak of 18 differ ent winners, two gen erations ago, started with Tom Watson capturing his fifth British Open in 1983 and ended with Larry Nelson winning his third major at the 1987 PGA Championship. Major champions during the mid1980s included the likes of Seve Ballesteros, Fuzzy Zoeller, Lee Trevino, Raymond Floyd and Jack Nicklaus. What sets apart this recent stretch is that Webb Simpson at the U.S. Open last month became the ninth straight player to win his first major. Pretty amazing, Hunter Mahan said. I remember first coming out on tour, and it was almost the same five guys every Sunday at every major. It really was. This is a whole new staff of players. Its the evolution of the game. Woods used to be domi nant in the majors, even during the short-lived era of the Big Four that included Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and Vijay Singh. It reached such a point of predictability that Colin Montgomerie once sug gested there was only one major for everyone else after Woods & Co. collect ed theirs. Tiger was winning all those things, and he was keeping Phil from winning more, Mahan said. Now, its like there are four majors four majors that are wide open. Augusta is the only place where you can count on four or five guys being there. That place is predictable. Everywhere else, its not predictable. The British Open returns to Royal Lytham & St. Annes for the first time since 2001, when David Duval pulled away from a four-way share of the lead on Sunday to capture his only major. It is the only links course in the rota tion without a view of the sea. Lytham is a relatively small piece of property enclosed by houses and a railway, and littered with 206 bunkers that give the course its character. The sixth hole has been converted to a par 4, so Lytham will be a par 70 for the first time. The defending champion is Darren Clarke, another surprise in this list of dif ferent major champions, though for other reasons. He was 42, beyond what was considered to be the prime of his career, when he finally got his name on the claret jug on his 20th attempt. Woods did not play last year at Royal St. Georges, taking most of the sum mer off to let the injuries to his left leg fully heal. Woods, a three-time Open champion, has not finished in the top 10 at golfs old est championship since he won at Royal Liverpool in 2006. Then again, he has missed two of the last five because of injury. A winner this year at Bay Hill, Muirfield Village and Congressional, the only thing that keeps Woods from restoring some of his mystique is a major. And as the last four years have shown, those are getting more difficult to win. The more different guys that win them, the more guys who think they can win them, Geoff Ogilvy said. Simpson said as much when he won at The Olympic Club last month. He watched his Presidents Cup teammate, Bubba Watson, win the Masters. In the previous major, Keegan Bradley rallied and beat Jason Dufner in a playoff at the PGA Championship. It was Bradleys first appearance in a major championship. If I see Keegan Bradley win a major ... I respect his game a ton, but I feel like, Keegan Bradley won one, I want go to win one, Simpson said. All these guys that won before me, I thought, I played with these guys all my life. Theyre great players, but I want to do what theyre doing. Everybody is so competitive in this world that we just kind of feed off each other. Attribute some of that to the slide of Woods. During one stretch, Woods won 13 out of 35 majors, and he was winning regular PGA Tour events at an even higher rate. That didnt leave as many tro phies and certainly not much attention for everyone else. The land scape is changing, though. Woods is a 36-year-old with four knee surgeries behind him. Mickelson is 42 and has not broken par since May. Singh is 49 and hasnt won in four years, while Els is 42 and is struggling mightily with his putting. The next generation is not on the way. Its already here. And most of these players dont have mental scars from watching the guy in a red shirt pose with all those major titles. The biggest thing is the mental aspect, said Ogilvy, who won his lone major in 2006 at the U.S. Open. Jack always said he thought majors were the easiest to win because most guys in the field didnt think they could win them. But the more dif ferent guys that win, the more others will say, If he can win one, I can win one. When it was just Tiger, Vijay, Ernie and Phil win ning them, players might think majors are only for those guys. So the mental aspect gets easier, he said. You see these guys winning majors, and you compete with them every week. Saying that, theyre still very, very hard to win.

LeBron James wins 3 trophies at ESPY Awards By BETH HARRIS Associated Press LOS ANGELES LeBron James collected the biggest trophy of his career when the Miami Heat won the NBA championship. That title run netted him some more hardware at the ESPY Awards. James won a leading three individual trophies, including male athlete of the year, and shared in another at the 20th annual show celebrating the years best athletes and moments in sports. He wasnt on hand to accept because he was in Las Vegas with the rest of the U.S. national team pre paring for the upcoming London Olympics. James outpolled tennis player Novak Djokovic, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in fan voting for male athlete honors. He also won in the champion ship performance and NBA player categories, while sharing in the best team award, with Juwan Howard and Mike Miller accepting for the Heat. Hes had a magnifying glass on him since he was 17 years old and I think hes handled himself really, real ly well, Miller said of James backstage. Unbelievable teammate, unbelievable father, so those are the most important things. Hes just a likeable guy. Hes a great basketball player to boot. Baylor basketball star Brittney Griner won two trophies, including female athlete of the year in which she beat out French Open champion Maria Sharapova, skier Lindsay Vonn and soc cer player Abby Wambach. Quarterback Robert Griffin III, who like Griner starred at Baylor, won male college athlete honors. Griner took female college athlete honors for lead ing the Lady Bears to a 40-0 record and the NCAA championship. Just excited. I wouldnt be here without Title IX, Griner said backstage. Everything is just coming together, and it feels good to be here. Los Angeles was well rep resented, with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick winning best NHL player after help ing the franchise win its first Stanley Cup title, and Galaxy star David Beckham earning best MLS player honors. The Kings won for best upset after their run to the NHL championship as an eighth seed in the Western Conference. Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton won as best MLB player, while Rodgers earned best NFL player honors. Mario Gutierrez, who rode Ill Have Another to victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, won as best jockey. Skateboarder and snow boarder Shaun White won his fifth consecutive ESPY for male action sports ath lete. Host Rob Riggle of The Daily Show and The Hangover fame zinged some of the famous faces in his opening monologue. He touched on the New Orleans Saints bounty scan dal in singling out quarter back Drew Brees, who won for record-breaking per formance after shattering Dan Marinos single-season passing mark. Brees and the Saints are haggling over his contract with a Monday deadline looming. If only the Saints had some sort of fund that they could pull extra cash from to reward people for doing things on the field, Riggle cracked as Brees looked down from his seat, and the crowd roared. The Arthur Ashe Courage award went to former Tennessee womens bas ketball coach Pat Summitt, who revealed her diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimers last August. She retired in April after 38 years. Summitts son, Tyler, escorted her to the stage to accept the trophy while the Nokia Theatre crowd stood applauding. Speck bunted the runners over. David Wargo hit a sacrifice fly to center field to get Fort Caroline on the board. In the top of the seventh inning, Knowles singled with two outs and scored on a double by Gallivan before Wilkinson got the final out. Wilkinson and Cohrs each had two hits for Fort White. Willis got the win with five hits, two walks and six strikeouts in five scoreless innings. Carter was charged with one run and Wilkinson gave up two hits and one run in two innings. Willis picked off a runner at first and shortstop Tyler Wendel turned an unas sisted double play in the second inning. For Fort Caroline, leadoff hitter Knowles was 2-for-2 with a double and two walks. Wargo had a sin gle to go with his sac fly and Speck has a single. Allen pitched five innings with eight hits, five runs (three earned), two walks, two strikeouts and a hit bat ter. Bennett pitched a 1-2-3 sixth inning.
