Dennis Theron LaRoche, 287 S.W. Fedora Way, was arrested by Alachua County Sheriffs Office deputies in an under-cover sting named Operation Tail Spin. Five other men were also arrest-ed during the sting, which ran July 18 to July 22. LaRoche, 30, was charged with using a two-way com-munication device to facili-tate a felony, a third degree felony; traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child, a second degree felony; and using a comput-er to solicit, seduce or lure a child, a third degree felony, according to an Alachua County arrest report Last week LaRoche responded to an online ad posted by an undercover officer on an e-commerce site.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comLake City resident Keith Wheeldon was arrested on Monday for buglarizing a Lake City home, say police. A 32-inch flat screen television and several tools were found stolen from Christina Ortegas home in June. Ortega reported the burglary to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, telling the police that her daugh-ter Chaylen had some-thing to do with the theft. Video footage of Wheeldon and Chaylen Ortega was discovered from a local pawn shop, according to reports. The shop owner said the pair had pawned two items in the store. During questioning by CCSO, Wheeldon report-edly admitted to having pawned the items but said he was not involved in the burglary. Wheeldon was arrested for burglary, larceny and dealing in stolen property on Monday.

By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comA reduced millage rate from the state means up to $1 million less in the Columbia County School Districts operating budget than originally expected. The total millage rate is lower at 7.412 than last year, when it was 7.615. However, the decreases could be made up as the district expects some addition-al money from the state, the districts primary source of fund-ing. Property owners can expect to pay less in taxes to the district this year. School board members approved the tentative budget and millage Tuesday night during their meeting at the district administrative complex. Overall the picture this year looks pretty flat, said Steve Nelson, school board chairman. Budget cuts in previous years are still paying off for the district, he said. It this point, it looks like we should be OK, he said. The board is not expecting an influx of money, so previously cut items are not likely to be restored, he said. How much the district will receive from the federal and state sources is not yet final, he said. State funding is based on enrollment, so the district could see a change with two charter schools open-ing this year, Nelson said. The district will take a 1.2 percent cut in operating expenditures this year with a tentative budget of about $79.4 million. The state Department of Education gives districts little discretion when determining millage rates. The district had proposed a millage rate of 7.753, prior to the state determining required local effort millage rate components. Nelson By NICHOLAS RICCARDI andP.

Court rejects prison appeal TALLAHASSEE An appellate court on Tuesday tossed out Attorney General Pam Bondis request for a decision to uphold the proposed priva tization of 29 South Florida prison facilities. A three-judge panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal rejected her plea to reverse a lower courts ruling against privatiza tion, saying Bondi couldnt appeal on her own after her client, the Department of Corrections, declined to do so. The panel unani mously dismissed the case because Bondi was not a party. A party who suffers an adverse judgment in Circuit Court has the right to appeal, but nonparties whose rights have not been adjudicated have no right of appeal, Chief District Judge Robert Benton wrote for the court. Leaders of the Republican-controlled Legislature had urged Bondi to appeal after Gov. Rick Scott decided the department, which is part of his administration, would not. One of Bondis assis tants acknowledged during oral argument last month that it was too late to carry out the privatization due to the expiration of a bud get provision authorizing the plan. Nevertheless, Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Glogau asked the appellate court to issue a ruling upholding the privatization provision that would set a precedent for future budgets. Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford of Tallahassee last year blocked the privatiza tion plan, saying it violated the Florida Constitution because it should have been authorized through passage of a stand-alone law instead of being tucked into the budget. Lawmakers subsequently considered such a bill, but it was defeated in the Florida Senate. Its unconstitutional crisscrossed three dif ferent ways, said M. Stephen Turner, a lawyer for the Police Benevolent Association and three indi vidual prison guards who challenged the privatiza tion plan. Turner said he was happy with the appel late courts decision but couldnt understand why Bondi appealed because the case against the budget provision was so strong. Im just a lawyer fol lowing the law and Judge Fulford was a judge follow ing the law, Turner said. In a specially concurring opinion, District Judge Ronald Swanson noted the appellate court did not limit or curtail the attorney generals power nor did it rule on the merits of the case. Accordingly, this case also does not serve as precedent to define leg islative power, Swanson wrote. Turner, though, said Fulfords decision remains a precedent in the 2nd Judicial Circuit, which includes Floridas capital city, where challenges to legislative authority typi cally are filed. Bondi spokeswoman Jenn Meale issued a brief statement noting lawmak ers asked her to appeal and saying we respectfully disagree with the courts decision. The attorney general could have sought the trial judges permission to intervene and thus become a party, but she didnt do that. Glogau said they didnt have enough time to get the request approved after Scott decided against appealing shortly before the deadline for filing. He also contended the judges approval was not necessary, but the court disagreed. District Judge Nikki Ann Clark concurred only with the main opinion. Orlando appeals red light ruling TALLAHASSEE Orlando is asking the Florida Supreme Court to reverse an appellate court ruling that says red light camera tickets were illegal if issued before the state passed a law allowing the cameras. The city appealed the 5th District Court of Appeals ruling on Tuesday. Miami man dies in police-involved shooting n Associated Press EL PASO, Texas Sherman Hemsley, the actor who made the irascible, bigoted George Jefferson of The Jeffersons one of tele visions most memorable characters and a symbol for urban upward mobility, has died. He was 74. Police in El Paso, Texas, said late Tuesday that Hemsley was found dead at his home on the eastside of the city. A statement from police said no foul play is suspected and that the exact cause of death is pending. The Philadelphia-born Hemsley first played the blustering black Harlem businessman on CBSs All in the Family before he was spun off onto The Jeffersons, which in 11 seasons from 1975 to 1985 became one of TVs most successful sitcoms par ticularly noteworthy with its mostly black cast. With the gospel-style theme song of Movin On Up, the hit show depicted the wealthy former neigh bors of Archie and Edith Bunker in Queens as they made their way on New Yorks Upper East Side. Hemsley and the Jeffersons (Isabel Sanford played his wife) often dealt with con temporary issues of racism, but more frequently reveled in the sitcom archetype of a short-tempted, opinion ated patriarch trying, often unsuccessfully to control his family. Hemsleys feisty, diminu tive father with an exag gerated strut was a kind of black corollary to Archie Bunker a stubborn, high-strung man who had a deep dislike for whites (his favorite word for them was honkys). Yet unlike the blue-collar Bunker, played by Carroll OConnor, he was a successful businessman whose was as rich as he was crass. His wife, Weezie, was often his foil yet provided plenty of zingers as well. Despite the characters many faults moneydriven, prejudiced, tempera mental, a boar Hemsley managed to make the character endearing as well, part of the reason it stayed on the air for so long. Much like OConnors portrayal of Archie Bunker, deep down, Hemsleys Jefferson loved his family, his friends (even the ones he relentlessly teased) and had a good heart. His performance was Emmy and Golden Globe nominated. He was a love of a guy and immensely talented, said Norman Lear, producer of The Jeffersons and All in the Family, after learn ing of his death. When the Jeffersons moved in next door to the Bunkers, I wanted to deliver the George Jefferson who could stand up to Archie Bunker, Lear recalled Tuesday. It took some weeks before I remembered hav ing seen Sherman in Purlie on Broadway. Hemsley read for the part and the minute he opened his mouth he was George Jefferson, Lear said. Hemsley was smaller than OConnors Archie but he was every bit as strong as Archie, Lear said. Sherman Alexander Hemsley, though, was far less feisty. The son of a printing press-working father and a factory-working mother, Hemsley served in the Air Force and worked for eight years as a clerk for the Postal Service. Having studied acting as an adolescent at the Philadelphia Academy of Dramatic Arts, he began acting in New York work shops and theater compa nies, including the Negro Ensemble Company. For years, he kept his job at the post office while acting at night, before transitioning to acting full-time. He made his Broadway debut in 1970s Purlie, a musical adaptation of Ossie Davis Jim Crow-era play Purlie Victorious. (Hemsley would later star in a 1981 made-for-TV version of Purlie, as well.) it was while touring the show that Hemsley was approached by All in the Family pro ducer Norman Lear (Good Times, Sanford and Son) about playing a character on the sitcom that would become All in the Family. Hemsley joined the show in 1973, immediately catapulting himself from an obscure theater actor to a hit character on the enormously popular show. Two years later, The Jeffersons was spun off. Among the numerous All in the Family spin-offs (Maude, Archie Bunkers Place, 704 Hauser), The Jeffersons was the longestrunning. The character, the owner of a chain of dry-clean ing stores, was devised as pompous and feisty. All of it was really hard for because rude, I dont like to be that way, Hemsley said in a 2003 interview for the Archive of American Television. But it was the character, I had to do it. I had to be true to the character. If I was to pull back something, then it just wouldnt work. Sherman Hemsley of TVs The Jeffersons dies Sherman Hemsley, the actor who made the irascible, bigoted George Jefferson of The Jeffersons one of televisions most memorable characters and a symbol for urban upward mobil ity, was found dead Tuesday at his El Paso, Texas home.

LaRoche then drove from Lake City to Gainesville to have sex with the under age girl, say police, but was arrested when he arrived at the pre-arranged meeting place. LaRoche admitted to police that he believed he was traveling to have sex with a girl, but maintained that he would not have forced the girl to do any thing against her will, the report said. LaRoche has been released from Alachua County jail. The Gainesville and Alachua police depart ments assisted in the sting. SHOOTER: Alleged assailant waas surrounded by brain experts Continued From Page 1A STING Continued From 1A Anschutz Medical Campus dedicated to neuroscience, studying such topics as how the brain works or malfunctions or helping develop drugs to treat epilepsy and other disorders. But it is not behavioral science or psy chology, experts say. David Eagleman, who runs the Initiative on Neuroscience and the Law at Baylor University, said some neuroscientists are experts in mental illnesses and aberrant behavior, but others spend most of their time studying molecular chemistry. Its really only a fraction of professors who could identify a simmering mental disorder, Eagleman said. Many people in neuroscience are not specialized in the issue of picking up mental illness ... There are plenty of people who just study mice and cats and stuff like that. Holmes is accused of methodically stock piling weapons and explosives at work and at home that police say he used to kill 12 people and wound 58 more at a movie the ater Friday in nearby Aurora. Police say he also booby-trapped his apartment with the intent to kill police officers. Holmes arraignment hearing is on Monday. Attention continued to focus on victims of the attack and their grieving families, many of whom turned on Tuesday to the grim task of preparing for funerals. Batman star Christian Bale visited sur vivors of the shooting and stopped by a makeshift memorial to victims near the movie theater where they were shot. Authorities say Holmes began shopping for firearms while studying neuroscience. He joined the program in June 2011 after receiving a National Institutes of Health grant to cover his tuition and provide a $26,000 annual living allowance. The school refuses to say what specifi cally Holmes studied. But an online sylla bus listed him as making a presentation in May during a class called Biological Basis of Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders. In early June, Holmes took a standard oral exam that ends a graduate students first year. The school will not say whether he passed, but Holmes filed paperwork to withdraw from the program just days later. He never provided a written explanation for his departure. He had, as is now common knowl edge, excellent academic credentials, said Barry Shur, dean of the universitys graduate program. Shur said the graduate program is like a family in which faculty carefully monitor students progress. It would be a logical step to assume there were people in that program who worked closely with him and would have the expertise to assess his behavior, said Mary Ellen OToole, a former FBI profiler and the author of the book Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Feelings Betray Us. But being able to recognize concern ing, troubling behavior does not mean you can prevent a mass homicide, OToole said. There are many people at a univer sity level who act quirky and strange and dont go out and commit mass murder. Academics studying the human brain may not have the same ability to size up threats as someone who makes his living spending time with people firing guns, OToole said. Glenn Rotkovich, owner of a private Colorado gun range outside Denver, quickly concluded there was something wrong with Holmes. Holmes applied to join the range in late June. But Rotkovich said that after calling Holmes back and hearing a bizarre voice mail message spoken in a strange, lowpitched voice with heavy breathing he concluded he didnt want Holmes as a member. I flagged him to people and said, if he shows up, I dont trust him, Rotkovich said. Holmes apparently never went to the range. The universitys silence on the year Holmes spent there contributed to the mystery surrounding his motivations. Administrators refuse to say whether fac ulty or students saw signs of dangerous behavior in Holmes. Campus police said they had no information on Holmes before the attack. Holmes remained in solitary confine ment Tuesday in Arapahoe County jail, a day after appearing bleary-eyed and dis oriented in his initial court appearance. He could face the death penalty if convicted. Working to build their case, a team of lawyers from the district attorneys office spent about 90 minutes inside the movie multiplex where the shooting occurred. Crews were starting to encircle the build ing with a chain link fence while people continued to flock to a memorial nearby for the victims. Relatives of those who died were brac ing for a string of funeral services, the first of which for Gordon Cowden, the oldest of those killed was planned for Wednesday. Meanwhile, a woman whose husband remains in a coma after being shot in the head gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the same hospital Tuesday. A profile for a man whose name and appearance matched Holmes has been removed from a dating website. Match. com spokesman Matthew Traub on Tuesday confirmed reports on TMZ.com and elsewhere that the profile was posted before the movie theater massacre. Traub would not comment on whether Match. com believes Holmes actually posted the profile. The profile included the question, Will you visit me in prison? and said, I spend a lot of time thinking about the future, mind (equals) blown. The profile photo showed a man whose hair is reddish orange, similar to Holmes hair when he appeared in court Monday. New details emerged about the night of the shooting. Clad in head-to-toe combat gear, Holmes allegedly burst into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, tossed gas canisters into the crowd and opened fire. Friends Stephanie Davies and Allie Young, who attended, said the gunman moved around the room yelling and seemingly targeting people. He would shout, What are you doing? I said stand up! And he would pick people up. I saw him stand over someone. I just see hair and him holding the shirt and boom, said Davies, 21. Outside Colorado, men accused of mak ing threats during or after other screenings of the Batman film have been arrested in separate incidents in Maine, Arizona and Southern California, underscoring movie goers anxieties about security. In Colorado, the shooting has prompted a sudden surge in gun sales. In three days, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation approved background checks for 2,887 people who wanted to purchase a firearm. That was 25 percent greater than the average Friday-to-Sunday period in 2012, and 43 percent greater than the same period the week prior. In Arizona, Jeff Serdy, owner of A.J.I. Sporting Goods in Apache Junction, esti mated he saw up to 40 percent more traffic than usual in the two days after the killings. I looked out on the floor and said to myself, Whoa, look at all these peo ple, Serdy said, noting many customers expressed concern that lawmakers may use the shooting to try to pass gun restric tions. Political analysts say there is little appetite in Congress for such laws. A party who suffers an adverse judgment in Circuit Court has the right to appeal, but nonparties whose rights have not been adjudicated have no right of appeal, Chief District Judge Robert Benton wrote for the court. Leaders of the Republican-controlled Legislature had urged Bondi to appeal after Gov. Rick Scott decided the department, which is part of his administration, would not. One of Bondis assistants acknowledged during oral argument last month that it was too late to carry out the privatization due to the expiration of a budget provision authorizing the plan.

They are too involved in telling tourists about their czarist past, extolling the art and wonders of the palaces of the Greats, Peter and Catherine. Now and then, a guide will point out a building where the old regime held forth, and on occa-sion there will be a sneered refer-ence to that other city, Moscow. This is not unusual, considering that this sprawling city on the Baltic is the nations art center and that its selling esthetics more than politics. Even when talking about the Nazi siege of what was called Leningrad during World War II, most speakers still call the city by its original name. The remains of the now-crumbling gray tenements and office buildings are among the first thing you see: bleak symbols of oppres-sion and better forgotten. Now the society is abundantly familiar with fast-food hamburgers and soft drinks from America. A shopping-center food court was filled with handsome Russian chil-dren downing Happy Meals and sodas. Tens of thousands gathered here in a festival to celebrate graduation, and everywhere there were lovely brides in white dress-es and grooms in tuxedos heading with their families and guests to the citys wedding chapels. Vladimir Putin was in town, but about the only recognition of the fact was a complaint that his motorcade might slow the traffic so our group had better hurry to avoid it. St. Petersburg is about the size of Chicago but without the tall buildings. Any vestige of commu-nism seems to have disappeared into a Coke can, the lasting sym-bol of capitalism. Prices arent cheap. Rubles are the preferred currency, with some vendors accepting euros now and then and dollars even less fre-quently. In a spectacular Eastern Orthodox cathedral, an old lady right out of Tolstoy was guarding the candle supplies. Youre told youll need a previously arranged visa if you want to travel independent of the cruise ships land excursions. Most of the guides are teachers during the winter months and speak any number of languages, some better English than you do -leading you to suspect theyve been trained by the KGB. Im only kidding, for crying out loud. No, this isnt the old Russia. The modern Russian woman wouldnt be caught dead in a babushka. I think its a sport for President Barack Obama to make outra-geous statements like If youve got a business -you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen, which he said in a recent campaign trip to Roanoke, Va.-and then watch Republicans go predictably bananas. Certainly the multimillionaire business supporters of the president on Wall Street and in Hollywood know this is absurd. Anyone with the mildest under-standing of business and capital-ism knows this is absurd. Yet the president struck at the heart of what makes capitalism tick -individual freedom and personal responsibility -without his polling numbers in the week that followed budging and his re-election probability on Intrade.com actually ticked up two and half points. We are reaching dangerous critical mass of those in our coun-try who have enough stake in big government -whether they are employed by it, collecting ben-efits from it or businesses getting favors from it -that political pro-tection is commanding a higher premium than freedom. If Americans want prosperity, we need a grand reawakening to the incontrovertible fact that its source is entrepreneurs unfet-tered by meddling politicians. Apple Inc. is now the most valuable company in the world. Its recent stock price puts its valuation at around $560 billion, more than $150 billion more than Americas biggest oil company, Exxon Mobil Corp. Fifteen years ago, in 1997, when Steve Jobs returned as CEO of Apple, the company was worth less than $3 billion, about half a percent of what it is worth today. Estimates then were that Apple was several months away from bankruptcy. John Lilly, a former Apple employee, now a Silicon Valley venture capitalist, blogged after Jobs death about a talk that Jobs gave to employees shortly after his return. Apple was losing money, its stock was languish-ing, there were rumors about the company being acquired and Jobs was asked about a sugges-tion that the company should just shut down. He concluded his response with: If you want to make Apple great again, lets get going. If not, get the hell out. The blog-ger continues, I think its not an overstatement to say that just about everyone in the room loved him at that point, would have followed him off a cliff if thats where he led. In the following year, according to the account in Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacsons book about the entrepreneur, 3,000 employees were laid off and Jobs reviewed Apples entire product line, prun-ing it from 15 products to four. Now Apple is the most valuable company in the world, with innovative products no one would have dreamed of in 1997. In September 1997, Apple had 8,437 full-time employees. Today, according to its website, Apple has 70,000 employees worldwide, of which 47,000 are in the United States. The com-pany estimates that 514,000 jobs have been created as a result of employment at Apple, at com-panies supported by Apple and the economy created by Apple products. Suppose, when Jobs revamped and shrunk Apples product line, he needed employees to vote in order to get rid of each product? It, of course, would have been impossible. But this is what we have when government goes where it doesnt belong, getting into busi-nesses like providing retirement services, health care, housing and education. Even if programs work for a while, times inevitably change. Businesses can adjust. Government cant. Changing Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, public education and government housing policy today is about politics, not good eco-nomic decisions. So were stuck pouring billions we dont have into programs that dont work. Capitalism is not about being on your own, as we hear so often from liberals. Its about entrepreneurs, like Steve Jobs, being free to create prosperity by serving their fellow citizens with innovative ideas and products. And its about government doing its proper job -protecting life and property -so this can happen. n Star Parker is an author and president of CURE, Center for Urban Renewal and Education. Visit www.urbancure.org. A moment of silence is currently cre-ating a clamor. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is resist-ing a proposal for Fridays opening ceremonies in London to remember the 11 Israeli athletes killed in Munich 40 years ago by Palestinian terrorists. The committee should recon-sider. The 1972 Munich Olympics were a watershed in the qua-drennial games. Politics had long played a role in this inter-national sporting event, but never with such brutality. The fact that the slain athletes were Israelis may play an uncomfort-ably large role in the IOCs decision-making, but fear of complaints should not prevent the committee from doing the right thing. On Monday IOC president Jacques Rogge tried to calm the situation by offering an impromptu memorial to the slain athletes at the Olympic village. I would like to start todays ceremony by honor-ing the memory of 11 Israeli Olympians who shared the ide-als and have brought us togeth-er in this beautiful Olympic Village, he said. This did little to dampen the controversy. One of the most poignant commemorations came dur-ing the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. A large, tattered flag that had been unearthed from the rubble of the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks was slowly carried around the stadium then raised as the official United States flag for the games. The IOC had tried to block this solemn moment three days earlier. The president of the Salt Lake orga-nizing committee, Mitt Romney, issued a statement saying he respectfully disagreed with the decision then demanded a meeting with Mr. Rogge to dis-cuss it. Mr. Romney emerged from the three-hour conference and announced that the flag would appear at the opening of the games. M r. James Holmes made his first court appear-ance Monday in connection with the shooting of 70 people, 12 fatally, at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. Many victims of the murderous rampage remain hospitalized. The victims and their grieving families remain in our thoughts and prayers. As the legal process triggered by the theater shoot-ing gears up, so, too, has the political process. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is calling for restoration of the fed-eral assault-weapons ban she sponsored in 1994 and which expired in 2004. California already has such a ban. Appearing Sunday on Fox News, she said, Weapons of war dont belong on the streets. This is a powerful weapon, it had a 100-round drum; this is a man who planned, who went in, and his purpose was to kill as many people as he could in a sold-out theater. Weve got to really sit down and come to grips with what is sold to the average citizen in America. Its also worth noting that these weapons are not machine guns, or fully automatic weap-ons, which have been banned since the National Firearms Act of 1934, enacted during the hey-day of Bonnie and Clyde, Baby Face Nelson and Machine Gun Kelly. Its difficult for anyone to get a permit for a machine gun. The theater shooter used a semiautomatic rifle with a large-capacity magazine, a shotgun and a pistol, police said. A study of the 1994 assault-weapon ban, con-ducted in 1999 by the Justice Department during the presi-dency of Bill Clinton, included this key finding: The ban has failed to reduce the average number of victims per gun-murder incident or multiple-gunshot-wound victims. Then theres the evidence from Europe. Norway has strict gun control. Yet, last year admitted killer Anders Breivik still obtained enough guns to shoot to death 80 peo-ple on an island youth camp near Oslo. The sad fact is that if someone is determined to commit atrocities, planning for months as did Breivik and, accord-ing to police, Mr. Holmes, its going to be difficult to stop him. A broader perspective is needed. Despite this new atrocity, or other shooting sprees, gun murders are down sharply in the past two decades. In his book, More Guns, Less Crime, Mr. Lott attributes much of the reduc-tion to the increased number of conceal-carry laws in the United States, in which people fairly easily are granted per-mits to carry concealed weap-ons on their persons. Of the 50 states, 41 now have such laws, up from just 16 in 1990. California has not statewide law, allowing county sheriffs to determine policy. Under Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, Orange County has a strict policy. Concealed-carry laws reduce crime because would-be perpetrators dont know who among potential victims could be armed. According to FBI data, U.S. murders dropped by nearly 40 percent, to 14,478 in 2010 from 23,440 in 1990, even as the population grew by 24 percent. Even amid heartbreaking circumstances, its good to remember the words of the 19th-century American statesman Daniel Webster: A strong conviction that some-thing must be done is the par-ent of many bad measures.

Jags counting on Gabbert to make progress in year 2By MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE With a new owner, a new coach and a few new faces, the Jacksonville Jaguars have reason to be excited about the season. Players are energized and fans are optimistic the kind of feelings the fran-chise has seldom enjoyed while missing the playoffs 10 of the past 12 years. How long those last likely will depend on quarterback Blaine Gabbert. The 10th overall pick in last years NFL draft, Gabbert has to be more productive for the Jaguars to turn things around in 2012. I would expect significant progress in his play from Year 1 to Year 2, gen-eral manager Gene Smith predicted last month. If not, the Jaguars could be in for another long sea-son. Gabbert completed 50.8 percent of his passes for 2,214 yards as a rookie, with 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also was sacked 40 times. The biggest concern was that he seemed to feel phantom pressure, which caused sloppy footwork, off-balance throws and inaccuracy. The former Missouri standout had plenty of excuses: an offseason pro-gram significantly short-ened by the NFL lockout, a lame-duck coaching staff that included a former receivers coach serving as his tutor, and arguably the worst receiving corps in the league. He also spent much of his college career work-ing from the shotgun for-mation in a spread offense, so his transition to pro-style sets took time. And to be fair, Gabbert wasnt even supposed to play last season. The Jaguars drafted him with the intention of letting him sit as a rookie and learn from veteran David Garrard. But Garrard re-injured his back during training camp and struggled in the preseason, prompting the Jaguars to cut him just days before the opener. Even then, Luke McCown was given the starting job. But after two lackluster weeks, Gabbert got the call. He started 14 games and looked every bit like a young kid in a tough spot. It was an unfortunate situation having to come in New faces to fill Jacksonville locker room.

More than 200 students showed up for free school physicals offered at Columbia High on Tuesday.

We open it to all students interested in playing high school sports, but we also get middle school students as well as those interested in playing Pop Warner and recreational ball. Dotson said that the physicals are not only a big benefit to the student, but they also make it easier for Tiger sports. For us, the big benefit is that its providing a service all in one day, Dotson said. This allows us to get all of the physicals in on time instead of relying on the student to take care of it.

Thats why I say I like being at Florida State you have expectations, coach Jimbo Fisher said. Thats why I wanted to coach there, and thats why people want to come there. Of the 95 media members who voted, 72 put Florida State on top in the Atlantic Division. Defending league champion Clemson was sec-ond and had 17 first-place votes, followed by North Carolina State (5), Wake Forest, Boston College and Maryland. The Hokies were chosen to win the Coastal by 83 vot-ers with second-place selec-tion Georgia Tech receiving 10 first-place votes. North Carolina (2) was third, fol-lowed by Virginia, Miami and Duke. From my standpoint, what I see is, weve got a team that can be good, but weve got work to do, Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. Were not there right now. Florida State was then selected as the eventual league champion on 60 bal-lots. The Seminoles return 18 starters from a team that finished 9-4 and beat Notre Dame in the Champs Sports Bowl. Last years team had designs on claiming its first BCS bowl since Bobby Bowdens 2005 team lost to Penn State in the Orange Bowl. But a three-game los-ing streak which partly coincided with a shoulder injury to quarterback EJ Manuel wound up leav-ing Florida State on the out-side looking in. Weve learned some vital lessons, Fisher said. Everybody says, Talk about potential. Potentials three things. Its talent, and we are physical, we have good size, good speed. Its knowing what to do. We know what to do, we know how to do it. But I think the key is, the third element, which is very important, is the con-sistency you do it with and the detail you do it with, he added. I think that comes from time and experience.
Ronnie Ashs +7 score in the Wednesday Blitz was just enough to edge out a trio of golfers. Gary Croxton, Glenn Sanders and Jack Tuggle turned in scores of +6 to share second place. Skin winners were Frog Niewisch, Jim Munns and Chet Carter with two each, followed by Dale Coleman and Jerry Perkins with single skins. Wednesdays morning blitz game is open to golfers of all levels.

It takes time. Its not one of those things you can pick up overnight when you step onto an NFL football field as a 21or 22-year-old kid trying to learn a new sys tem. Its just different from what youve learned in the past. The Jaguars went 5-11 in what was the most tumul tuous season in franchise history. Coach Jack Del Rio was fired in November after a 3-8 start, let go the same day that the team was sold to billionaire Shad Khan. Interim coach Mel Tucker took over and shook things up by firing an assistant coach and releasing a start ing receiver. Just about every major move since has been to make Gabbert better. Khan and Smith hired for mer Buffalo Bills coach and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey as the franchises third head coach. Mularkey brought QB coach Bob Bratkowski with him from Atlanta to serve as offensive coordina tor and hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Greg Olson as quarterbacks coach. Bratkowski and Olson spent much of the offsea son tweaking Gabberts mechanics, starting with shortening his stride. Weve slowed some things down with the drop, just to maintain that bal ance, Mularkey said. Were not asking him to drop as deep just so he remains balanced so hes not too fast into it where he doesnt keep his balance. Slowly but surely, its get ting better and better. The Jaguars have tried to surround Gabbert with bet ter talent, too. They signed former Dallas Cowboys receiver Laurent Robinson to a five-year, $32.5 million contract and traded up to select Oklahoma State star wideout Justin Blackmon with the fifth overall pick in Aprils draft. The addi tions should help improve what was the leagues worst offense in 2011. Im real impressed, Robinson said. I feel like were way ahead of sched ule. Theres still a lot of work to do, but were mov ing at the right speed, catching on and doing the right things. Even so, the Jaguars still have plenty of con cerns heading into training camp. Will star running back Maurice Jones-Drew hold out in hopes of get ting a new contract? Will Blackmon, who was arrest ed on a DUI charge in June, stay out of trouble? Will tight end Marcedes Lewis, who struggled in 2011 while dealing with a childcustody case, return to his 2010 form? Will Jacksonvilles defense, which ranked sixth in the league last season, continue to play at a high level? How defensive tackles Terrance Knighton, Tyson Alualu and DAnthony Smith return from injuries? Will defensive ends Jeremy Mincey, Austin Lane and rookie Andre Branch pro vide a more consistent pass rush? Will rookie punter Bryan Anger, a third-round draft pick, really make a dif ference on special teams? All of those, though, pale in comparison to questions surrounding Gabbert. I think Blaines obvi ously made some strides, Smith said. I clearly expect him to take a step this year. ... I think with any young quarterback, whether its your first year or coming in here as a second-year start er, hell have some trying times. It will certainly help him having gone through that a year ago and perse vered in a lot of ways. paramedics, doctors and school staff donating their time on behalf of the students. Its a big help to have the doctors donate their time free of charge, Dotson said. Every time we have these Dr. Frank Broome is here. Of course the biggest reason that the physicals are free is for the safety of the players. It allows us to know going into the athletic sea son that these kids have been thoroughly checked out, Dotson said. It doesnt eliminate the chance of inju ry or possibly getting hurt, but the doctor is able to give each student a clean bill of health. Theyll know that their heart is alright and their blood pressure checks out. Theyre not only get ting a medical exam but a full orthopedic checkup, so theyll have a full range of motion. Most of the students showing up for the physi cals are for football with the Tigers, but Dotson said its not only for football play ers. We have a widespread between all the sports, he said. Middle school kids are mostly here for football, but we have a wide range of students at the high school from basketball to softball. With the success over the last few years, Dotson said the school plans to keep it on the same rotation. Were going to try to do it every summer, Dotson said. We had previously done it during the spring, but we ran into the prob lem of students that play more than one sport. It was difficult for them, because they would end up having to have two physicals. That could lead to missing prac tice and its hard on those sports so we decided to try to get everyone in during the summer. And at worse parents and students save a few dollars. CHS: Offers students free physicals Continued From Page 1B
DEAR ABBY: Im a 12-year-old girl and I hope you will print this because its about something important. I have an iPod Touch. My friends and I wanted to text, so I asked my mom if I could down-load a program to talk to my friends. She said it was OK. I really like The Hunger Games, so I went into a Hunger Games chat room and started talking with some boys there. The next thing I knew there were three men texting me, asking me questions about sex and asking for pictures. (It started with them asking if I was fat, and when I said no, I was asked to send a picture of me in a bathing suit to prove it.) Then they wanted me to send some without the top. I felt really pressured. I got so scared I couldnt sleep, so I had to tell my mom. She helped me delete my account and told me it was dangerous, but she always loves me. It was hard for me to tell her because I was scared she was going to be mad. I want your readers to know this can happen and there are chat room apps for iPods. Im smart. I get good grades in school, but these guys almost tricked me into doing something I didnt want to do. I still have trouble sleeping because Im afraid one of them will see me on the street and do something to me. What should I do? -TERRIFIED FROM TEXTING DEAR TERRIFIED: Im glad you took the time to write. You are a very lucky girl. You are fortunate to have a good relationship with your mother and that you could go to her right away when you realized you were in over your head. Remember, once something is on the Web its there for good. Thank you for wanting to warn other young people about your experience. Adults can lecture about the dangers of communicat-ing with strangers on the Internet, but its easy to tune them out. I hope other young women will learn from what happened to you and recog-nize how careful they must be in chat rooms because as your experience illustrates, not everyone is who they pretend to be. Bottom line: If anyone wants to text or chat and things progress in a way that makes you uncomfort-able, its time to carefully consider whether to pro-ceed or not. Immediately show the text or chat to someone (a parent or an older, more knowledge-able friend) and ask for an opinion. Do not let anyone -whether you know him or her or not -force you to do ANYTHING. **DEAR ABBY: I am a healthy, active older man who is in love with a woman my age. Coincidentally, we are in-laws. Her hus-band and my wife are both deceased. Having known each other for many years, we are very close and have found renewed happiness with each other. We are in love. Our adult children tell us we are not being ratio-nal. Our peers see nothing wrong with it. Please tell me something that makes sense. -CONFUSED RETIRED ENGINEER DEAR CONFUSED: You have raised your kids and buried your wife. You deserve to be happy. What makes sense is you and this lady you have known for years being happily togeth-er. Your childrens attitude is whats irrational. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont give in to your insecurities. Trust your judgment, and dont shy away from speaking your mind or asking questions you need answered in order to keep moving for-ward. A past relationship can help you advance now. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Size up your situation before you take a leap in a direction that may not be good for you. Broaden your outlook through experience or research so you know exactly what you are up against before you proceed. Dont rely on oth-ers. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your charm and fun-loving approach to life will entice the people you come into contact with. A last-minute change of plans will be to your benefit. Greater commitment to someone you admire will lead to personal success. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): One step forward, three steps back. Try not to ruffle feathers or cause trouble. Keeping things running along smoothly should be your goal. Now is not the time to disagree or to let your emotions lead to a stubborn stand-off. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Youve got all the right moves. Take a chance and you will find a pathway to success. Romance, adven-ture and a change of sta-tus, coupled with running into someone from your past or a love-at-first-sight encounter, is apparent. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You must find a solu-tion to a problem that is holding you back. Exploring and discussing your options with someone you trust can help you find a way to reduce stress or financial pressure. Dont let a relationship cost you. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make a move that has the potential to change your professional direc-tion. What you learn or discover now will help you choose between something youve always wanted to do and your current position. Love and romance will flourish. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Find out the facts firsthand. Someone may keep a secret from you concerning money or health issues. Dont be too quick to offer help, support or cash when you should be more concerned with saving for unexpected expenses. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): It all boils down to give-and-take. You can achieve your goals if you are willing to give some-thing up in return. Follow your heart and strive to be fair, and in the end you will get everything you deserve and more. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Expect to face a difficult situation. Be care-ful what you divulge. Dont trust anyone to do a job that requires your personal attention. Overspending or making unrealistic prom-ises will be your demise. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Choose your direction and head that way without any reserva-tions. Feeling confident that you have made the right choice will lead to a successful venture. Love is on the rise. Do your best to put aside time for some-one special. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): You will be held responsible for your actions. Be sure to make wise choices. Avoid a manipulative individual looking for advancement at your expense. Pending legal matters will not pan out as expected. Focus on alternative action. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
