Inside todays Reporter : Candidate endorsements (Page 4A) Local candidate Q&A (Special insert) JEA permit may get second look By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org County commissioners approved a recommendation from staff to hire both a scientific and legal consultant to review modifications requested by JEA on a permit issued by St. Johns River Water Management District. Modification to the permit, which allows JEA to pump 155 gallons a day from the Floridan aquifer, has been requested because of a prob lem with saline intrusion in two wells. JEA hopes to close the wells and have two new wells redrilled further west. Our concern is that they are overpumping, causing a draw-out issue, county manager Dale Williams said. In essence, the water underneath us is being sucked to the east in order to meet their demand and their need. Williams recommended the county hire a scientific consultant to assess the modeling calculations in the modification of the permit.

NASHVILLE Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are hosting the Country Music Association Awards for a fifth time. Underwood started the online buzz about their return with a tweet Wednesday, saying she was hanging out with Paisley. She joked that she caught him in her makeup chair and added the hash tag (hash)suchadiva. CMA confirmed the news on Twitter and Facebook shortly after with a picture of the two stars during a photo shoot. The CMA Awards will air live Thursday, Nov. 1, on ABC live from Nashville. Fifty Shades author hits road NEW YORK Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James will soon make her first visits to two hotspots featured in her erotic tril ogy: Seattle and Portland. Vintage Books announced Thursday that the Britain-based writer is including the two U.S. Pacific Northwest cities on a tour this fall to promote her multimillion-selling novels. James will appear at Seattles Third Place Books on Sept. 22 and at Portlands Powells Books on Sept. 24. James will also travel to Houston, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Los Angeles. La Toya Jackson gets reality show NEW YORK Oprah Winfrey has tapped La Toya Jackson to star in her own reality show. Life with La Toya is described as a candid look inside Jacksons life as she juggles family, friends and business. It will air next year on Winfreys TV net work, OWN. La Toya is one of Katherine and Joe Jacksons nine children and was Michaels sister. She isnt the first Jackson to get a reality show. The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty aired for six epi sodes on A&E. It followed Jermaine, Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson. La Toya also competed last year on Celebrity Apprentice. On Thursday, OWN also announced a slate of celebrities sitting down with Winfrey for upcoming episodes of Oprahs Next Chapter. They include Stephen Colbert, Bette Midler, Jennifer Hudson and Kelsey Grammer. NBC research addresses delays NEW YORK NBCs researchers are finding that people who know the results of London Olympics events before they are shown on tape delay are more not less likely to watch them. The preliminary research unveiled Thursday undercuts an assumption that has guided production of Olympic broadcasts from locales outside of U.S. time zones for decades. NBC has been criticized for not televising live some of the London Games marquee events like swimming and gymnastics so they can be aired later in prime time. Two-thirds of people questioned in a survey Sunday said they watch the prime-time Olympics telecast even if they know the results ahead of time. People who watched the events live earlier in the day via computer screen watched the tape-delayed broadcast 50 percent lon ger than those who hadnt, said Alan Wurtzel, NBCs chief researcher. NBC has been getting far better ratings for the London Games than it ever expected, outpac ing the 2008 Games in Beijing. A month ago, NBC had predicted it would lose some $200 million on the games, but network executives said Wednesday the company would break even. NBC Sports Chairman Mark Lazarus said Thursday the company could even make money if the good ratings continued. The network is airing all of the competition live via video stream. But the networks decision to hold back big events because no live competition takes place during U.S. prime time has led to widespread complaints on social media. The longtime the ory was that fewer people would watch in prime time if they could see them live earlier. CORRECTION The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

Do what it says. James 1:22 NIV Thought for the Day Winning isnt everything, its the only thing. Vince Lombardi TALLAHASSEE Republican Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday called on leaders of Congress to stop potential federal bud get cuts that he said would be devastating to Floridas fragile economy. Scott sent a letter that warned that as many as 39,000 jobs could be lost in the Sunshine State next year if billions in automatic cuts in national defense spending take effect in January. The cuts are part of a deficit-reduction plan approved last year by Congress. The decision by Scott to wade into the fray over budget cuts is a bit of change since he has been a fierce critic of federal spending in the past. Scott rejected more than $2 billion in money for high-speed rail and he has defended cutting public jobs in state and local gov ernment as a way to help the economy. While I agree with many Americans that the federal government must reduce spending, reduce taxes and create an envi ronment conducive to private sector job growth, I urge you to prioritize the safety and security of our nation and the strength of our economy, Scott wrote. The governor urged both House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to replace the impending and disastrous defense cuts with cuts in other programs. Scotts only suggestion on where to cut was to repeal the federal health care overhaul although the Congressional Budget Office recently said the overhaul would shrink rath er than increase Americas huge federal deficits over the next decade. In his letter, Scott noted that Florida is home to 20 military installations and said that nearly 700,000 direct and indirect jobs are defense related. He suggested that the cuts would not only harm the states economy where unemployment is now 8.6 percent but could jeopardize the safety of Floridians. GOP senators late last month visited presiden tial election battleground states to warn about the cuts even though Congress previously endorsed the reductions. Record official despite error TALLAHASSEE A Florida appellate court says electronic property records are official once filed even if later erased by mistake. The 1st District Court of Appeal ruled Thursday in Tallahassee. The 3-0 opinion upheld the foreclosure of a Walton County lot by First City Bank of Florida. The panel rejected an appeal by Michael and Bonnie Mayfield and Branch Banking and Trust Co. The Mayfields bought the lot in 2009 through a mortgage from BB&T. They were unaware the lot had been purchased three years earlier from the same seller by another buyer who obtained a mortgage from First City. Hialeah woman charged in fraud MIAMI A Hialeah woman has been arrested for suspected absentee bal lot fraud after authorities say she collected at least 31 ballots under suspicious circumstances. Prosecutors say 56year-old Deisy Cabrera turned herself in Thursday at the Miami-Dade State Attorneys Office. She faces a felony absentee ballot fraud charge and two misdemeanor counts of illegally possessing more than two ballots that belong to other voters. Cabreras attorney declined comment. Man gets life for 2010 killing BROOKSVILLE A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his girlfriends estranged hus band. A Hernando County judge sentenced 42-yearold William Siskos on Thursday. He was con victed in June of seconddegree murder. Authorities say Siskos was looking for his girl friend, Kim Kasbach, at a neighbors house in June 2010. He found her, but her husband, Joe Kasbach, was also there. A confron tation ensued between the two men, ending with Siskos shooting Joe Kasbach with a .22-caliber Ruger. Siskos claimed that Kasbach hit him twice and was reaching for a weapon when he fired. A witness testified that Kasbach never hit Siskos or pulled a weapon.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 3-4, 2012 3A county can then intervene on the permit. Intervention of the permit would open all aspects of the permit up for discussion. The deadline to intervene on the permit is August 17. I do not trust Suwannee River Water Management District. I do not trust St. Johns Water Management District. It will behoove us ... to intervene by hir ing our own hydrologist to check the science and make sure we are protect ing our water, county com missioner Ron Williams said. Williams motioned to take staff recommendation to hire a scientific and legal consultant to investigate the issue. The motion was approved. Commissioner Stephen Bailey made a motion to give staff permis sion to intervene if they find sufficient evidence. Both motions passed unan imously. The county is moving forward on storm water mitigation projects that were born out of flooding from hurricanes in 2004 in the areas of Five Points, Melrose, Clay Hole Creek and Canon Creek. Separate mitigation plans were organized for each flooded area. Mitigation at Clay Hole Creek was originally estimated to cost around $3.5 million. The project was deemed too expensive however and was scaled back to an $850, 000 project that would expand retention ponds in the area. In order to expand reten tion pond area, the county is negotiating with six prop erty owners to buy their land, which was flooded during the hurricanes. County attorney Marlin Feagle outlined a list of guidelines to assist in the negotiation of purchasing the properties. Williams moved to accept the guide lines proposed by Feagle. The motion passed. The Bascom Norris Drive project bid was awarded to Anderson Columbia who proposed a bid of around $6.5 million. The entire project is esti mated to cost around $10.6 million. The project will be funded by a combination of grant, loan and county money. PERMIT: JEA water deal could get a second look Continued From Page 1A voting, said Liz P. Horne, supervisor of elections. Early voting gives voters more chances to cast their ballot, especially because polls are open on the weekend. Voters can also fit voting in with work schedules as polls open more than one day, she said. Horne predicts a 49 percent turnout for the primaries, with about 27 percent cast ing their ballot during early voting. The county had 34,367 registered voters as of Thursday. So far 2,601 people have requested absentee ballots and 1,082 have been returned to the supervisor of elections. It makes it easier for us on election day, Horne said, by cutting down on lines and the number of ballots to count in one day. Last year the early voting period was 14 days long, but this year it runs eight days. James Montgomery, who served as a Columbia County commissioner for 28 years, said he plans to vote early and avoid the lines on Aug. 14. Montgomery said he hasnt seen major differences in this years campaign sea son compared to years past. So far, there hasnt been much public mud-slinging among candidates, he said. I havent seen any real animosity being shown, he said. Montgomery said its a good thing. We are all still going to be in the same community when this is over with, he said. Youve got to learn how to lose if you get into politics, Montgomery said. Some folks cant handle that, he said. Montgomery said when he lost his campaign for Lake City mayor his attitude was, if they want me good. If not, Ive got plenty of other things to do. Montgomery said this season has sev eral interesting local races and he expects some close results. One thing that is different this year is the number of forums and speeches at area community centers and schools, he said. It was a gathering of the commu nity and it was a big thing. I just dont see that happening, he said. Montgomery said he might have missed some forums, but they used to be more highly publicized. Everyone looked forward to it and gathered whether you cared for the speakers or not, he said. Montgomery said political parties not inviting candidates from opposing par ties has happened in the past and its not unusual. Another change Montgomery has seen is the number of political signs and post ers. I have never seen so many large signs in my life, he said. Buddy Hines, chairman of the Columbia County Republican Executive Committee, said he has seen much more political enthusiasm than last year. I think the biggest thing is people are excited about the presidential election and its carrying over to other races, he said. Races are always enthusiastic on years with sheriff and superintendent races, Hines said. The committee has hosted three rallies so far and turnout has been more than double, compared to four years ago, he said. In the next few weeks, Hines antici pates more candidates and supporters on street corners waving signs. They are excited and ready to get out there and vote, he said. Those unable to make it to the polls have until Aug. 8 to have a absentee bal lot mailed to them, Horne said. Voters also have until Aug. 5 to update their signatures, if needed. If a registered voter has moved to Columbia County from another Florida county, he or she can change addresses until the election day by contacting the supervisor of elections. Sample ballots are available on the supervisors website, both offices and area libraries, Horne said. For candidate and voting information visit www.votecolumbia.com.

DEBBY: Deadlines for assistance are approaching Continued From Page 1A a home on Voss Road to investigate a pos sibl e civil dispute. When he arrived he spoke to a woman who said she brought her car to Meehan because the vehicle needed new brakes. The woman told Guerry that she left the vehicle at the residence and she and Meehan had a verbal agreement that he would repair the vehicle and contact her. The victim she when she returned to the home, she could not find her car and wanted to press charges if possible. Guerry asked Meehan who removed the vehicle and who told him to remove it. As Guerry continued to question Meehan, Meehans wife interrupted the conversa tion and told Meehan to tell the truth. The woman told Guerry she knew who removed the car and said the man was a local scrap metal worker. Guerry contact ed the man who reportedly told him the car was taken to the scrap yard and he paid Meehan prior to scrapping the car. The vehicles owner was instructed to speak with a representative from the scrap business so she could retrieve her car. THEFT: Man arrested after car scrapped Continued From Page 1A Diverse history woven into RNC host city By MITCH STACY Associated Press TAMPA In a twist of irony, many visitors to Augusts Republican National Convention will travel between their hotels and the downtown event on a busy road named to honor President John F. Kennedy, a Democrat. Kennedy Boulevard, a gateway to down town from the west, was so named in 1964 partially because of a special connection between Tampa and the 35th president. Kennedy had waved to massive crowds lin ing that road from an open-topped Lincoln Continental on Nov. 18, 1963. The next time he rode in that car, four days later in a motorcade through downtown Dallas, he would be shot to death. A statue of JFK now stands at the pres ent site of the University of Tampa, looking out over his eponymous thoroughfare. The Tampa-JFK connection is just part of Floridas rich presidential history. It includes Andrew Jacksons role as Floridas first territorial governor in Pensacola, Harry S. Trumans Little White House in Key West the winter quarters hosted a total of six presidents and the famous compound kept by the Kennedy family at Palm Beach. After Kennedy became president, a secret bunker was installed in an island off the coast in case of a nuclear attack. Theres more in Tampa, too. A stones throw away from Kennedys statue is a grand structure topped with curiously ornate minarets that was once called the Tampa Bay Hotel. Built by railroad mag nate Henry Plant, it was there that thenCol. Teddy Roosevelt and members of the First United States Volunteer Cavalry better known as the Rough Riders bivouacked in 1898, before shipping out for Cuba and the Spanish-American War. Today, the building houses a museum and is a centerpiece of the stately downtown University of Tampa campus. In more modern history, as the Tampa Bay area grew up and Florida became a critical swing state, visits by sitting presidents have become relatively com mon, and Tampa has become a required campaign-trail stop for any candidate who hopes to win over the many swing voters here. For visitors to the Aug. 27-30 conven tion, there is plenty more to take in. Tampas former Latin quarter, Ybor (EEbor) City, adjacent to downtown, was for the first half of the last century the cigar manufacturing capital of the world, with more than 200 factories once lining the narrow streets. That heritage is celebrated here, and still alive in the cigar shops mixed in among the bars and restaurants in what is now a bustling entertainment district. In the so-called Cigar City, afi cionados can put fire to a fine stogie rolled minutes before right in the window of one those Ybor City shops. Dont fancy a cigar? Then how about a Cuban sandwich? Thats the other product virtually synonymous with Tampa and is similarly interwoven into its history. A staple of the early immigrant com munities in Ybor City, the sandwich of ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard on pressed Cuban bread remains a Tampa favorite, with many res taurants and sandwich shops claiming to have the best or most authentic version. (Like pizza, Cuban sandwiches are hardly ever bad, regardless of who makes them.) 3A Political advertisement, paid for and approved by Jimmy Prevatt for 3rd Circuit Court Judge, Group 5.

Back-To-School
The following endorsements for the August 14 primary constitute the view of the Lake City Reporter editorial board, which consists of Publisher Todd Wilson, Editor Robert Bridges and Controller Sue Brannon.Sheriff Incumbent Mark Hunter has done a good job in our view and deserves another term as sher-iff. Increased law enforcement visibility throughout the county, particularly in Fort White, is but one example of the changes Hunter has brought to the sheriffs office. He has improved morale among his deputies and kept an eye toward the future, especially in regards to technology. We applaud him in his efforts and encourage him to continue along this path. We also encourage him to be more forthcoming in discussing his offices accomplishments in public whether it be a new substation or a major drug bust. The public generally likes what youre doing, Mr. Hunter. However, theyd also like to hear more about it.County Commission, District 1 Ron Williams is our choice for Columbia County Commission, District 1. A passionate speaker, Williams can be boisterous and loud. But when he settles down, hes still the candidate with the best grasp of the issues facing Columbia County for the future. Williams sees the big picture when it comes to assist-ing with the development of the countys Catalyst site and its partner-ship with Plum Creek. He also is quick to point out the importance of developing and certifying other economic development sites primed for growth in the county. Williams understands that without clean water, and lots of it, our economy and our way of life will dry up. One thing we hope Williams will do to solidify his legacy in his next term is talk less and listen more, espe-cially when it comes to the many issues that would move forward more quickly and efficiently if city government and utilities were included and respected as a partner.County Commission, District 3 After careful consideration of the five candidates running for Columbia County Commission, District 3, we believe its time for change. Bucky Nash is the can-didate who will bring sound lead-ership, good business sense and the willingness to communicate with residents, business leaders and government colleagues to the District 3 seat. Nash is a successful businessman, and he brings a level-headed approach to his view of the future. He realizes where the county falls short in bringing its message to the citizens. He wants to make meetings more friendly to citizens who want to address the commission and speak their mind. Nash has the right ideas for how to use the bed tax, enhanc-ing the sports complex and ramping up the efforts of the Tourist Development Council. Nash is a leader and he has pledged to listen to input and work together with citizens, business leaders, the city council and school district. We have con-fidence he can do this.County Commission, District 5 A political newcomer, Tim Murphy gets our endorsement for County Commission, District 5. We believe there needs to be stronger leadership in this dis-trict and Murphy brings more to the table than any other candi-date. Murphy expresses a willingness to work with other government bodies and has shown himself to be up to speed on the daunting task of prepar-ing several locations in the coun-ty to be certified for economic development. Murphy understands the role of the Southside Recreation Complex in generating eco-nomic development revenue, but first and foremost he wont forget how important it is to our children who play sports there. Murphy has owned a company for 24 years, so he understands what it takes to stay in business. We think his commonsense skills will be a good addition to the board. He has done his homework on county issues and has pledged to speak up and give District 5 a voice. We say give him the opportunity.Circuit Judge, Group 2 Andy Decker is our choice for Circuit Judge, Group 2. Decker is a man of intelligence and integrity who will serve the circuit well. He built a thriving law practice in Live Oak and served admira-bly as school board attorney for Suwannee County. And while he will follow the law in all cases, he is not afraid to admit he is a man of faith, and guided by the Judeo-Christian ethic at the very core of our culture. These traits will serve him well on the bench.Circuit Judge, Group 5 Wes Douglas gets our recommendation for Circuit Judge, Group 5. This is an open seat with no incum-bent to consid-er. Yes, Douglas is young, but he wont be the youngest judge ever elected in the Third Circuit. Yes, hes green. However, we believe he is an ethical young man who will dedi-cate himself to this honorable position. Were convinced he will do his homework and put in the time and effort to prepare him-self to do the best job possible.City Council, District 12 Its time for a change in District 12. We endorse political newcomer Zack Paulk for this seat. Social discord and racial concerns within city limits must be addressed, but in addition we need for Lake City to grow. Jobs and economic development are the key to every-ones future. Paulk has a business back-ground we see as well-suited toward that aim. However, we believe he will also be committed to fair and equal treatment for all.City Council, District 13 Incumbent Melinda Moses is our pick in this race. No longer a political newcomer, Moses is well-schooled in what its going to take to put Lake City on the right track toward econom-ic development and a brighter future for all. She has a strong vision of what downtown Lake City might someday look like, with a com-munity theater, art gallery and more. Moses did a good job in her freshman term and has earned another four years, in our view.Superintendent of Schools Local businessman Glenn Hunter gets our endorsement for Superintendent of Schools. With more than two decades experience as a school board member, Hunter has an inside track on the school system what works and what doesnt. However, as a member of the school board, the powers of which are strictly limited by statute, he hasnt had the oppor-tunity to put his commonsense reforms into practice. We think its time to give him that chance. What sets Hunter apart from the other candidates is that he is part of the system, but not fully a product of it. Everyone agrees that students should come first, above teachers, teachers unions, administra-tors or special interests of any stripe. We think Hunter takes that sentiment to heart and will act accordingly in all cases without great regard for whose feathers get ruffled in the process.School Board, District 2 We endorse Dana Brady to fill the seat of the retiring Charles Maxwell in District 2. Brady, a former juvenile prosecutor who worked on truancy preven-tion, has seen what happens when children take the wrong path. No ones suggesting that a good education cures all ills, but lack of one surely makes suc-cess and a prison-free future that much harder. Brady also recognizes the need for renewed emphasis on vocational education in our class-rooms and will work to see that all students, not just the college-bound group, have an opportu-nity to succeed.Others may share that goal, but we see Brady as particularly well suited to make it happen. School Board, District 5 We endorse Gordon Summers to fill the District 5 seat of Glenn Hunter, who left to seek the superintendents post. Summers is a soft-spoken, intelligent man who thinks things through carefully before acting. We are confident his studied reflec-tion will serve him well when determining whats in the best interest of our students. Summers has a wide and varied background, having served in the Navy and run a successful private business. He now works as an attorney for the Third Circuit Public Defenders office. We think Summers is the right candidate in this race to help lead our schools through the thicket of standardized test-ing, state-imposed merit pay and more.

Summers Zack Paulk Tim Murphy Bucky Nash Melinda Moses Wes Douglas Ron Williams Andy Decker Youre braver than you think! I n a theater in Aurora, Colorado some days back, a capacity crowd watched the new Batman movie. A mysterious figure dressed as the Joker char-acter from the movie slipped in through an emergency exit, threw a smoke bomb, and opened fire on the crowd. They realized that something was wrong, and responded with excitement, fear, and panic. One devoted boyfriend covered his girlfriend with his body and said, Keep quiet and still. Like many did that day, he demon-strated true courage. He gave his life for her. What makes the difference between courage and cowardice? When heroes are later asked, why did you do it? Where do you get the courage? they com-monly reply, I just did what you, or anyone, would have done in the same situation. Theyre wrong; thats not the same way everyone responds. There are as many responses as there were people in that crowded theater. What is it that makes a person heroic instead of cowardly, or show panic, freeze up, faint, or climb over others to get away? How are they able to do this? MerriamWebster Online Dictionary defines courage as, The mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, or withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. The Wikipedia online definition of courage: Bravery, boldness, fearless-ness, mettle, fortitude, or intre-pidity; the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation These arent bad definitions of courage, but they dont help us to build courage in ourselves. Were human. That means we are able to choose how we want to think about a situation, and choose how we want to respond to that situation. How do we develop courage? It turns out that if you think courageously, and act courageously, you will feel more courageous, and be more coura-geous. Decide to face danger with a strong and competent attitude, and choose to act and behave with brav-ery and strength. Do whats the right thing to do. Heroes usually say, I didnt even think about it; I did what needed to be done. When I was about 10 years old, I was deathly afraid of shot needles. We were told about upcoming shots days ahead, and given permission notices to take home to our parents. On the ominous day, I worried about it and dreaded getting in line for the shot. I managed to hold still for the injection, but I was so upset that my arm hurt and swelled up nearly twice its size. Only eight years later, during Air Force basic training, we were steered single file along a path with railings on each side. Medical techs lined up behind the railings used pneumatic guns that administered bubbles of vaccine beneath the skin on each of our arms. But this time, there was no swelling. I had learned and grown in the eight years since the school shots. I had learned new ways to deal with fear: changing my thinking, and deciding that Ive felt more pain than shots from a blister I got while having fun playing. I wondered about how the guys around me would think of my acting scared, and decid-ed not to act scared. I distracted myself, and thought about play-ing or napping in the sun on the beach. I learned to act brave, in spite of my fear. Since then, Ive had 50 years of opportunities to use courage, and Im pleased with how Ive handled it. I think Ive done what you would do in the same situation. Psychological research suggest that you are what you think you can be, you are what you do, and you are what you define yourself as. You can decide to make choices to think coura-geously and act courageously, and those choices can give you strength. Do it for yourself, and to be a good example for those around you. Be the best you can be. You will make a difference, and may save a life someday.

Y ou have experienced it; that tickling in your throat that wont go away. That cough that keeps nagging at you and wont go away. It just keeps hanging on and on and on. You try taking a throat loz enge; either the medicated or the non-medicated kind. You try all the home-remedies to get rid of the cough. Eventually you go to the doctor and he gives you some medicine to take and in a few days you are feeling better, although it is not completely gone, it is manageable. It is okay until to try to go to sleep, then it comes back. You cough and cough and cough. Finally you get up out of bed and take some more medicine and maybe even go to sleep on the couch or in your favorite chair. Have you ever thought that there might be a sin in your life that is like a nagging cough? In Hebrews 12:1, the writer speaks of the sin that so easily entan gles us. This would be a sin in our life that is constantly nag ging at us and we try all types of remedies to get rid of it, but it is always lingering around. We might pretend that it is not there, because we do things to hide the sin like we try to hide the cause of our cough by using a lozenge. We might try our own remedy to the solution but the sin keeps popping back up in our lives. We keep deal ing with it until finally we have had enough and we are willing to take it to the Great Physician and seek His help in removing the cause of the sin. The cause of the nagging cough is not going to go away until we treat the true problem, regardless of what it might be. Only until we are willing to quit trying to sooth the pain and look at the true cause of the cough, are we going to begin to find the solution to the cough. So it is with that nagging sin in our life. Until we are willing to truly look at the problem and not try to sooth our conscience or cover-up our sin are we going to begin to remedy the problem. We must be willing to admit that we have a problem in our life; we have a sin in our life that keeps nagging at us. It keeps us from being the type of people that God would want us to be. After admitting that we have a sin, we need to take the medi cine the Great Physician gives to us. Sometimes what Jesus says for us to do to overcome our sin is very unpleasant like taking some of the medicine that doctors give to us. But just like we might have to hold our noses to take the medicine, we might have to hold our spiritual noses until we can change our behavior and not let the sin be so nagging to us in our life. If you are like me, you never really know when the nagging cough goes away. You just wake up one day and say, I havent coughed today, or since last night, or since yesterday. I believe the same is true with the nagging sin that is in our life, if we will work on making the nec essary corrections. One day we will wake-up and say similar things about our sin as we did about that nagging cough. I hope that we will all hate that nagging sin that is in our life just as much as we hate that nagging cough. n Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City, Florida area. All Scriptural quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, Holman Bible Publishers, unless otherwise stated. T here was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews John 3:1. Thus opens among the most blessed stories in the entire Bible. This man Nicodemus, whose name means victory over the people was a leading Pharisee a ruler of the Jews and a member of the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin were the highest Jewish tribunal during the Greek and Roman periods, often mentioned in the New Testament; where the Greek name is always in the English version translated council. There were only 70 of these Sanhedrin. They were among the smartest of the day on the Jewish law. The Gospel of John records eleven interviews between Jesus and individuals. His conversation with Nicodemus is one of the most important passages in all the Word of God. Nowhere else in the entire Bible can we find clear er, stronger, statements about the new birth and salvation by faith in the shed blood and finished work of Jesus on the cross. One can be ignorant concern ing many things pertaining to Christianity and still be saved; but one cannot be ignorant con cerning the things set forth in this chapter and ever hope to be saved. It is imperative that the unbeliever be born again to go to heaven. In verse 2 we find that Nicodemus came to Jesus by night; maybe because he feared the Sanhedrin. It is pointed out two other times in the Gospel of John that Nicodemus came to Jesus by night (John 7:20 and 19:39) which also would seem to indicate that fear was a factor. Notice in verse 2 he called Jesus Rabbi or teacher. He said: We know that thou art a teacher come from God. Verse 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily (most assuredly) (these words are only used in John) I say to you, Except a man is born again, he cannot see (know) the Kingdom of God. This statement puzzled Nicodemus very much. In verse 5 Jesus said, Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born of the water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. There is much confusion about this passage born of water. The only way to understand dif ficult passages of Scripture is to compare scripture with scripture. This is the only time this state ment is made in the Word of God. Some say it is the natural birth when the mothers water breaks; some say you must be baptized; but the scripture says in Titus 3:5 (Read Eph 5:15-26) the water is the Word of God. That is what cleanses us. Have you been cleansed by the Word? n Hugh G. Sherrill, an ordained minister and Bible teacher at Eastside Baptist Church, is available for reunions.

W ho was your favorite superhero when you were growing up? With the Avengers, Iron Man, and many more newcom-ers, it might be hard to pick a favorite! When I was a little girl, there was really only one choice: Wonder Woman! She had her own TV show, the coolest outfit, and an invis-ible jet but these were just added benefits. What really caught my attention were her remarkable silver bracelets that doubled as defensive weapons against a villains bullet. (I suppose a bulletproof vest didnt quite work with her outfit) To me, it just didnt get any better than life-sav-ing protection that also happened to be a fashion accessory and lets just say my cousin and I went through numerous rolls of aluminum foil in order to fight crime in Wonder Woman style! As children, we loved the idea of being invin-cible. The longer we live, however, it becomes more and more obvious that our greatest hurts arent caused by bullets or vil-lains with super powers. Instead, they are usually the result of relationships that have taken a turn for the worst and how we respond to them. In 2 Corinthians 10:3-4, the Bible records the Apostle Pauls reminder to us that we have a critical decision to make: For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. This passage acknowledges that because we live in this world, even as believers in Christ, we still have the opportunity to fight like the world does, with the same weapons. Think about what those weapons are in connection to relation-ship conflicts: unforgiveness, retaliation, slander, sarcasm, angry outbursts, silent treatments, con-tempt just to name a few. The problem with using these weapons is two-fold: first, the more we use them, the better we get at using them, and two, the better we get at using them, the more likely we are to end up alone. Correct me if I have this all wrong, but it is not the goal in any given relationship to end up alone right? In fact, according to Genesis 2:18, being alone is the only thing in all six days of creation that God said was NOT good! According to the rest of this passage, we have other weapons to choose from weapons with divine power. Divine power implies that these weapons were not founded upon human reasoning, but by the wisdom of God, which gives them the authority to demolish strongholds. What better to battle unforgiveness than to forgive even when nothing in you feels like it? Could anything take the sting out of sarcasm like an apology or render the silent treatment use-less by saying I love you and I want to make this right and what remedies slander better than hum-bling yourself and finding something positive to say about someone who has dealt you a low blow? Yes these weapons have the divine power to demolish destructive patterns of behavior but we have to intentionally be willing to wield them. Chances are good these weapons can get rusty from time to time, but with regular use they bring relief and healing to hurt-ing relationships, and that is way more impressive than an invisible jet still I wouldnt mind having a set of those bracelets Because Every Heart Matters, Angie n Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, Director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and fam-ily conferences and offers biblical counseling to indi-viduals, couples and fami-lies. Contact Angie with questions or comments at email@example.com B oundaries are important because they establish what belongs to me and what does not. Our property (and your) has boundaries. That means, I take care of my property and not the neighbors. I dont know if you have ever considered this, but there are also invisible and personal boundaries in life. When child abuse or spou-sal abuse occurs, you will find boundary abuse. One lady was speaking with a counselor and was so upset as she poured out her problems. She loved sleep because every wak-ing moment, almost every day, she was doing stuff for other people. She had no time for herself. The counselor told her she was compliant, and had problems with boundaries. She needed to understand that although she was a Christian, that doesnt mean doing everything for everyone else. Paul says in Galatians 6:2 and 5, Carry each others burdens, and in this way you fulfill the law of Christ. ... for each one should carry his own load. Now you need to read the context of this to get the rest of the story. Paul is not contradicting him-self, he is talking about boundaries and responsi-bility. Being a Christian involves helping other people and especially Christians. The word use in verse 2 for burdens refers to something like a BOULDER. Something that is just too much for one person to handle. A person with a boulder to deal with, obviously needs the help of others to move it. However, in verse 5 he uses the word load which is some-thing like a nap-sack. Every day, everyone has certain things they are responsible for, things that they can, and should handle on their own. People get frustrated most, when they feel taken advantage of. A while back I decided to put in an electric secu-rity light. My first impulse was to ask a friend to help out with it. He hesitated, because he has so much to do already. Well, I thought a bit and figured, I was taking advantage of him in this. He should not have to take time from all the things he has to do, and come and do what I can do. So, I installed the light, and ran the wire, and dug the trench, laid the wire at the appropri-ate depth, and ran it up to the pole. Since electricity scares me, I simply asked him to install the breaker at the pole outside. Maybe this illustrates boundaries a bit. It also illustrates how we some-times take advantage of others for one reason or another. People are people, and our boundaries should be respected, for the physical things we have and are responsible for, as well as those boundaries that define who we are indi-vidually. There are boundaries for individuals, families, teens, work, and church. Figure what are your boundaries, and if some-one doesnt respect that, then of course there should be consequences. Going through life with-out boundaries, and not being able to say no to others who are pushy and inconsiderate and lazy will make you frustrated beyond belief. I recommend you get the book BOUNDARIES (When to say yes and how to say no to take control of your life), by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. It will help.

During an emergency meeting, the panel unanimously appointed Pam Stewart to take over on Aug. 31, when Gerard Robinsons res ignation takes effect. Robinson on Tuesday announced he was leaving the $275,000 job after just 13 months. He cited the challenge of living far apart from his family in Virginia, where he had been education sec retary before taking the Florida job. His brief tenure has been marked by turmoil over tougher standards that have dropped scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test and lowered school grades. He has denied, though, that Gov. Rick Scott, the board or its chairwom an, Kathleen Shanahan, forced him out. Im sorry to see him go, but I totally understand the circum stances in terms of being an active and involved daily parent in his childrens lives and with his wife back in Virginia, Shanahan said. Robinsons wife is a tenured law professor at the University of Richmond, but she was unable to land a similar job in Tallahassee. The Robinsons have two young daughters. His predecessor, Eric Smith, resigned under pressure from Scott shortly after the Republican governor took office in January 2011. While the governor has no formal role in the hiring of education commissioners he has the power to appoint board mem bers. Shanahan, a Tampa business woman, served as Jeb Bushs chief of staff when he was governor. Bush, who launched the states high-stakes testing and school accountability programs, contin ues to exert influence on Floridas education system through his ties with leaders such as Shanahan and his Foundation for Floridas Future, which lobbies to continue his policies. The former governor issued a statement through the foundation thanking Robinson for his service to Floridas students and teachers and wishing him and his family well. The board also voted to seek bids from consulting firms to aid in the search for a permanent successor after Shanahan argued against automatically going back to the firm that handled Robinsons appointment. She said the world has changed in a year although she had nothing against Ray and Associates. Board member John Padget, a former school superintendent from Key West, had suggested using Ray again to speed up the process. The boards contract with Ray also has a clause saying the firm would handle the search for a replacement without charge if the candidate hired leaves with in two years. The selection process was delayed last year when the board reopened the application process after only 19 candidates applied. State officials then courted Robinson and he was among nine new candidates who submitted applications during the exten sion. Stewart currently oversees programs for kindergarten through 12th grade. As interim commissioner she will head the Department of Education, which also includes community and state colleges, blind services, vocational rehabilitation and adult education. A former teacher, principal, guidance counselor and deputy St. Johns County school superin tendent, Stewart was traveling and did not participate in the board meeting. Shanahan, though, said she had spoken to Stewart about taking the interim position. Shes ready to go, Shanahan said. Right now she is not inter ested in the job on a permanent basis. Smiths ouster drew sharp opposition from then-board chair man T. Willard Fair, a Bush ally, who resigned in protest. Smith is now a fellow in education pol icy with the George W. Bush Institute. Smith had been a school superintendent Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland and chair man of The College Board, which administers the SAT college entrance test, before he was hired as Floridas education commis sioner in 2007. The Florida Senate passed a resolution praising his visionary leadership after he was forced out.

A Hernando County judge sentenced 25-yearold Wilana Frazier on Thursday. She was convict ed last month of two counts of animal cruelty and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Prosecutors say Frazier was at a park with her two sons in June 2011 when she hit one kitten with a bat and then encouraged her 8-year-old son to beat another kitten. One kitten was found dead in a trash can. The other survived for two months but eventually had to be euthanized. WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a man working outside a South Florida mall died after falling 15 to 20 feet. West Palm Beach police say the man, whose name wasnt immedi ately released, was working on a scissor lift Thursday outside the Palm Beach Mall when he fell. A police spokesman says the man was likely removing asbestos. The Palm Beach Mall, located off Interstate 95, was one of Floridas first fully enclosed shopping areas when it opened in 1967. The Palm Beach Post reports that crews have been working to transform the mall, which has been closed since 2010, into a shopping center for outlet stores. MIAMI (AP) Two South Florida men have been convicted of killing a supposed rival drug dealer and a 10-month-old baby. A Miami-Dade jury found Jimmie L. Bowen guilty Wednesday of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree mur der. Bernard M. Jones was convicted of one count of first degree-murder. Authorities say then-16year-old Bowen walked up to four men playing domi noes in front of a house in December 2008 and fatally shot 27-year-old Pierre Roche, who had been encroaching on the terri tory of the New Moneii gang. Bowen also wound ed Christopher Smith and then turned his gun on the baby, Derrick Days Jr., who was sitting on his fathers lap. The Miami Herald reports that the father was not wounded, but the child later died at a hospital. Jones, then 17, acted as Bowens get-away driver. 2 gang members convicted in killing of rival drug dealer, baby Worker dies after fall outside mall Kitten killer gets one year in jail By DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer American gymnast Aly Raisman earned a gold medal for her ath letic prowess in London. Its her mom whos gone viral. NBCs video of Lynn Raisman watching her daughter perform on the uneven bars Sunday, with her nervous murmurs and face and body contortions, was the single most replayed moment on Tivo digital video recorders that night. It has even inspired a YouTube spoof. The network doesnt have parent cams trained on the stands dur ing every Olympic event. Moms and dads are featured only when they are relevant to the story lines, vet eran NBC producer Molly Solomon said Thursday. But theyve already been indelible parts of the networks coverage in the first few days of the London Games. The parents of American gymnasts John Orozco and Dannel Leyva were palpable presences during that sports coverage. The bronze medal-winning Leyvas dad was his coach and a bundle of energy. NBC introduced Orozcos parents in a segment that talked about the sacrifices they made in helping the Bronx athlete reach a high level of competition. When Orozcos dreams were shattered by some subpar performances, he was near tears, and his mothers face reflected similar agony. Can you imagine the emotions of watching your kid compete? Solomon said. To me its part of the fabric of the story. One of NBCs best moments came after South African Chad Le Clos unexpectedly beat American Michael Phelps in the butterfly. Americans by now are used to seeing Phelps mom, Debbie, cheer her sons many medalwinning performances. This time the camera caught her in a double-take, first thinking it was another gold medal before learning her son had been beaten in the end. NBC producer Dan Beard was in the stands and heard a man shouting, Thats my son! Thats my son! He quickly ordered cam eras to catch video of Le Clos sob bing father, his head wrapped in a South African flag. The parents with their contrasting emotions made for arresting images. For many American athletes, NBC producers know the parents already through the research-gathering pro cess leading up to the Olympics. Seemingly more athletes these days are teenagers, and their parents are the emotional and financial support system through years of training. A Procter & Gamble ad campaign for the Olympics focuses on just these sacrifices that moms make. Not all parents are comfortable being a part of their childs moments. Solomon recalled a recent Winter Olympics where the parents of an ice dancing team asked that the cameras stay focused on their children. The mother of American ice skater Evan Lysacek is usually out of the arena, unable to watch her son perform live. If they dont want to be on camera, we are respectful of that, Solomon said.

Coach Demetric Jackson said the new heat-policy rules that limit practices to one per day for the first week took away much of the allure, though he will have a one-day session. There are other limitations imposed by the FHSAA, which noted on its website that heat illness is the leading cause of preventable death for high school athletes. Two-a-day practices are allowed in week two, but only on an alternating day basis. Weekly practice time is limited to 18 hours. A single practice is limited to 3 12 hours with a 90-minute maximum on intense exercise. The practice limits include warm-up, cool-down, stretching, conditioning and weight training. The new policies on hydration are: Q ensure that for every 30 minutes of practice there must be a minimum five-minute rest and hydration break; Q require unrestricted access to water for athletes at all times; Q require coaches and others in authority to never deny a student-athlete access to water if requested. In the practice days of long ago, water was a no-no for athletes. If you got any, it was only a sip. As a football manager you would be immensely popular with the players if you could somehow slip them water. It wasnt in one of those squirt bottles. It was usually a wet towel that players took turns sucking. It was them thrown back into the water bucket. This was not just practice, but games too. Another must was for players to take salt tablets after practice to replenish that lost through sweating. Now, salt is a substance to be avoided. We have moved opposite from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, whose lament was Water water every where, Nor any drop to drink. Water must now be everywhere and all are allowed to drink. Teams still have something in common with the Ancient Mariner. The albatross he killed and had to wear around his neck is a metaphor for the albatross all teams face in building a winning season. May water grease the skids for success.

Despite its lopsided loss to Alabama in last Januarys BCS national title game, LSU will open the 2012 sea-son ranked No. 1 in at least one poll. LSU sits atop the USA Today Top 25 coaches poll released on Thursday, with Alabama second and Southern California third. LSU received 18 first-place votes, slightly fewer that the 20 first-place votes for the Crimson Tide and 19 first-place votes for the Trojans. Still, the Tigers narrowly had the most overall points in the poll, which awards 25 points for a No. 1 vote down to one point for 25th. Oklahoma and Oregon round out the top five, fol-lowed by Georgia, Florida State, Michigan, South Carolina and Arkansas. FSU No. 7, Florida comes in at No. 23 in rankings. Building a programFlorida looks to rebound in 2012 FROM THE SIDELINE Brandon FinleyPhone: (386) email@example.com GAINESVILLE A sk anyone involved in the University of Floridas football program and they will tell you that 2011 didnt live up to expectations. Florida head coach Will Muschamps first year turned into disappointment that saw the Gators fall to a 6-6 regular-season record and fall out of contention in the SEC race by mid-October. Those kind of things are unacceptable to the Gatornation and most importantly the man in charge of getting Florida back to a position of prominence that saw the program win two national championships in three seasons. When Florida coach Urban Meyer left after the 2010 season, he left a lot to be desired on the depth chart. Muschamp was left trying to fit square pegs into round holes, but heading into his second season hes finding that this team is more to his liking. While Muschamp said there will never be a Will Muschamp team and this team will always belong to the University of Florida, he did say that the players are buying into the system during his second season. His goals havent changed since setting foot on campus and those are the same goals that every Florida coach has had since Steve Spurrier built the program into a dynasty during the 90s. I think when you dont make it to Atlanta (for the SEC Championship), Florida is a failure, Muschamp said at Thursdays media day in Gainesville. Florida has a long way to go if it wishes to qualify for the SEC Championship as the Easts representative this fall, but Muschamp believes that the players are buying in something he wasnt sure was always the case in his first season. He offered two simple keys to being a better team this season. The coaches have got to coach better and the players have got to play better, Muschamp said. It sounds simple enough, but Muschamp was sure to take the blame for the 7-6 record saying that he self evaluated his performance on a daily basis. He wasnt proud of the last time the Gators set foot on Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The last time we were in The Swamp, we didnt coach or play very well and that starts September 1, Muschamp said. You go to Texas A&M, you go to Knoxville and you come home against Kentucky, so we need to come out of the gate fast. Coming out of the gate fast wont be enough to propel the Gators back to where they want to be, however, with an October schedule that is brutal enough to test any team in the nation. Muschamp said that the Gators shouldnt have a hard time finding motivation for those games after sitting in the locker room following a loss much of last season. Its been a great motivating factor for our football team over the summer and in the off-season program and in spring to understand, Muschamp said. We need to finish better. We were outscored in SEC games, 72-22 (in the fourth quarter), its well documented. Muschamp is hoping that documentation turns in the other direction this fall and said it has took on a life of its own motivating players to not repeat that performance. Some of that can go in a lot of different directions, but obviously the weight room, and I think we have made tremendous improvement there, Muschamp said. Florida fans arent interested in how much the Gators can bench press, however, and the real test will start coming this fall. Thats when all of the talk from Thursdays media day will be drowned out by wins and losses. Muschamp certainly talked a good game and seems to be confident that he has the team headed in the right direction again. But wins cant be measured by confidence alone and Muschamp will have to prove it come BRANDON FINLEY/ Lake City ReporterFlorida receiver Frankie Hammond answers questions from the media during the University of Florida media day on Thursday in Gainesville. Much of that will come down to eliminating the stupid mistakes that can kill a football team. To put it lightly, Florida wasnt very good on the mental side of the game last season. The discipline of our football team, for two years in a row, we led the SEC in penalties, Muschamp said. We have addressed it and we need to do a better job addressing it as a staff.. But its not just penalties that are killing the Gators. Florida has had trouble handing the ball over to opponents. Turnover margin, again, its been emphasized, not well enough, Muschamp said. So we have re-evaluated ourselves and what we have done as a staff to do a better job in that department, 113th in the country is tough to overcome. And the individual responsibility of every player of just doing their job at the end of the day. While Muschamp continued to give the good speech, he knows well enough that talk is all it is. At the end of the day hes going to be counting Ws in the win column just like the fans. I told our players, we just got done with a team meeting; 15-11 at the University of Florida, we need to quit talking and start playing at the end of the day, just get on the field and play, Muschamp said. The head coach even joked that he thought about leaving the team in the locker room instead of bringing them over to meet the media. While talk is good, 15-11 at the University of Florida is not. Muschamp intends to build the program back into dominance, but hard work is the way to get there something he understands all to well. While a lot of coaches are good with the media, its obvious that its not Muschamps favorite cup of brew. He seems much more in tune on the practice field and in game situations. Muschamp holds a fiery personality and that is sure to be in full form this fall coming off the 2011 campaign. While Muschamp talked a good game, hes more worried about coaching one this fall. After all, a season without Atlanta will be a failure.

By PAUL NEWBERRYAssociated PressLONDON Michael Phelps added to his medal collection with his first indi-vidual gold medal of the London Games, and handed Ryan Lochte a double dis-appointment on his rivals final night in the pool. Phelps set the tone right from the start Thursday to become the first male swimmer to win the same individual event at three straight Olympics, captur-ing the 200-meter individual medley for his 20th career medal and 16th gold. He touched in 1 minute, 54.27 seconds, just off his winning time in Beijing but still good enough for gold. Lochte settled for silver and Hungarys Laszlo Cseh took the bronze. So a farewell games that started as a bit of a dis-appointment for Phelps is definitely looking up. Hes now won two golds and two silvers in five races not up to his China standards, but a fitting capper to a brilliant career that still has two more events to go. In fact, as soon as Phelps finished off Lochte, he hopped out of the pool and headed to the nearby diving well to warm down, know-ing he still had a semifinal of the 100 butterfly before the night was done. Lochte had gone through the same routine just a few minutes earlier, trying to pull off an impressive double 31 minutes apart. He came up short in both races, fading to bronze in the 200 backstroke behind fellow American Tyler Clary, then touching after Phelps in the medley. Phelps reaction wasnt a water-pounding celebra-tion, just a dazed smile and a definite look of relief. He seemed to be soaking it all in, relishing a gold of his own in London with his pre-vious victory coming in the 4x200 freestyle relay. Lochte shook hands with his rival before crawling out of the pool for the last time.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 3-4, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My husband died recently in a fire he started in a drunken rampage. In the aftermath I am left with feelings of extreme sadness and rage. Last night I was going through a box of his belong-ings and found some old letters he had written to a woman hed left me for 20 years ago. (We patched things up and then were married later.) I didnt want to read them, but in the first letter I caught the sentence, You are the only woman Ive ever met who truly changed me. I immediately tore it to shreds. There were others, but I tossed everything in the box into the trash. I couldnt put myself through the pain. For months, I have tried to dwell only on the happy times we had together and the love that, in spite of his alcoholism, we had for each other. Perhaps I could have dealt with these letters while my husband was still alive, but now I can only stew in my own anger. I dont want to do this to myself. I have been in therapy and at Al-Anon, but I feel as though I need other tools at this point to get me through this awfulness. -WIDOW IN ST. LOUIS DEAR WIDOW: Please accept my condolences for the loss of your husband. Im sure you have many rea-sons to be angry, and those letters are among the least of them. Try to think rationally about what the letter said. That they were in his pos-session probably means they were never mailed, and its likely they were written while he was drunk. As to the woman having changed him, from the way he died it doesnt appear he changed a lot. You have your life ahead of you. If you choose to waste your precious time looking back over your shoulder and cursing a dead man, of course thats your choice. But if you want to break this cycle of destruc-tive thinking, the quickest way to do it would be to contact your therapist for a reality check. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have lived together for five years. We have decided that we want to get married. He took me to pick out a beautiful ring and put money down to hold the specific ring. Sounds great, right? Well, its not. Unfortunately, my boyfriend doesnt have the money for it, which is completely understandable, because its quite an expen-sive ring. Here is my issue: He recently took a significant amount of money out of his 401(k) to pay off a gambling debt. I also received a very large bonus, of which a major portion went to pay the gambling debt. Why would my boyfriend take me to pick out a ring if he knows he cant afford it? Why would he prioritize his gambling debt over a ring for me? For us? For our future? -NOT HIS FIRST PRIORITY DEAR NOT HIS FIRST PRIORITY: Candidly, your boyfriend probably made the gambling debt his top priority because he was afraid if he didnt someone would beat him to a pulp or worse. Surely by now you have realized that he has a gambling problem and is not good with money. Thank your lucky stars you realized it before marriage. You are living with someone who appears to have trouble recognizing there are consequences for his actions. If you want a hus-band who is mature and responsible, stop enabling him and recognize that this man isnt Mr. Right. DEAR ABBY: Im a 16-year-old girl who acci-dentally left my diary on the counter and my mother read it. When she told me, I was disappointed and hurt. To me, a diary is a place I can escape to and feel com-fortable just being me. She now knows I struggle with depression and have done things Im not proud of. I was angry and expected an apology because it was a violation of my privacy. She claims she had the right to read it because I left it on the counter, and if I didnt want her to see it, I shouldnt have left it there. Regardless of where my diary was, I dont feel she had the right to go through it because its not hers. I told her I want an apology and I am willing to rebuild that trust. My mom said there is no reason to rebuild it or to apologize, and she did nothing wrong. Am I wrong for wanting an apology and a better explanation for why she did it? -DISAPPOINTED DAUGHTER DEAR DISAPPOINTED: Your mother read your diary because it was out in the open and she was curious. Does she owe you an apol-ogy? Perhaps. However, if her level of communication with you is so poor that you live under the same roof and she hasnt noticed your struggle with depres-sion -whether situational or chronic -and offered to help you find help for it, then what happened may have been a blessing. What you need with her is a closer relationship, not a combative one. Her job as a parent is to help you, and that includes teaching you to make the right choices. DEAR ABBY: A bridal tea is being held for my niece soon. The invitation says, Hats and dresses, please. I was also told ver-bally by the mother of the bride (my sister) that they want everyone attending to wear hats. I told her Im very uncomfortable wearing a hat, but would put flowers in my hair to jazz it up. Last night, my brotherin-law called asking what I was wearing to the tea. My first reaction was that he was joking -so I asked if he thought that it was even worth a conversation. He said if I dont wear a dress and hat, to not bother com-ing. I was so shocked that I said OK and hung up. I am very sad that I would not be welcomed without the hat -something so superficial. If appear-ances are more important than having me there, then I really dont want to attend. I would, however, send a note and gift and also attend the regular shower being planned if invited. I dont want to alienate the family. -RAMBLING AUNTIE DEAR RAMBLING AUNTIE: Obviously, your sister and her daughter are more concerned with the fantasy of how things will look at this tea than the feelings of those who will attend. People like that are easily offended/alien-ated and carry grudges. Because you dont want to cause a rift, buy a cheap hat and go to the tea. While sending a note and gift in lieu of attending is more than what most people would do under the circumstances -and I dont blame you for con-sidering it -to keep peace in the family, put in an appearance. P.S. With relatives like this, you have my sympa-thy. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Ryan Lochte, 28; Evangeline Lilly, 33; Tom Brady, 35; Martin Sheen, 72. Happy Birthday: Branch out and explore new peo-ple, places and activities that will help you expand your mind and awareness. Opportunities that arise through new experiences will lead to fresh plans. Personal and professional partnerships will be at an all-time high and will help you develop a unique and prosperous future. Your numbers are 8, 11, 17, 22, 28, 37, 41. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Follow your dreams. Youre in the drivers seat, and as long as you arent afraid to take action, posi-tive results will be yours. Put time aside for the one you love; if single, socialize and you will meet some-one special. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can be nice, but dont let someone make you look bad or hurt your chance to get ahead. Protect your heart and your assets. Your ability to say no will make the dif-ference in the way people treat you. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont let emotional blackmail make you feel guilty. If someone is giv-ing you ultimatums, walk away. Make decisions based on your needs. A change in lifestyle will improve your health and wellness. Put what you want and need first. Love is highlighted. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Changes at home will add to your comfort and make you feel better about your life. Doing things a little differently will add to your charm and surprise and impress loved ones. A responsibility you take on will result in greater opportunities. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take care of money mat-ters. Pay down debt, col-lect money owed to you and enforce a new budget that will get you back on track. Keeping life simple will be the key to a better future. Romance is head-ing your way. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look at whatever situ-ation you face from a prac-tical standpoint and you will find a suitable solution. Stick to work projects until you are happy with the results and you will bypass criticism and personal disappointment. Avoid excess. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Traveling, visiting a friend or socializing with people who share the same interest or hobby will lift your spirits and bring you in contact with some-one special. A romantic gesture will bring a posi-tive response and a chance to build a better future. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Dont push your plans onto others. If someone doesnt want to participate, move along. You will have to be more accommodating to keep your personal life running smoothly. Home improve-ments marked by creativ-ity and compromise will be successful. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youll attract attention and compliments if you are honest and real-istic about what you have to offer. You dont have to play games to win; you just have to be yourself. Your fun-loving approach to life will win favors. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Focus on your responsibilities before you decide to relax. Keep things simple and within your means. Dont feel obligated to say yes to someone who doesnt deserve your help. An impulsive move will be costly. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Re-evaluate your current personal and professional partnerships. Discuss your intentions while offering equality and you will find common grounds that will ensure a long-term commitment. Love is in the stars, and greater opportunity is apparent. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ease into any situa-tion, getting as much infor-mation as possible to avoid upsetting anyone uninten-tionally. Indulgence and aggressive behavior will lead to deception and emo-tional problems. Honesty and moderation will be key to bypassing trouble. +++ Birthday Baby: You are astute and charismatic. You are creative, caring and popular. Eugenias website -eugenialast.com, Eugenias android app @ http://bit.ly/exhoro and join Eugenia on twitter/face-book/linkedin.

Clint Bowyer643; behind -88Fans who follow Sprint Cup racing today are getting to watch one of the sports all-time great drivers at his best. Like Fireball Roberts,Richard Petty,David Pearson a nd Dale Earnhardt before him,Jimmie Johnson is dominat ing his era,winning championships and the sports b iggest races. On Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway,Johnson wrote himself into that tracks extensive record bo ok by becoming one of the tracks four-time race winners. He did it in grand style,leading 99 of 160 laps and motori ng away from the field at the finish to win by a margin of 4.758 seconds over second-place Kyle Busch.The winning margi n was a race record. Johnson joins his teammate and fellow Sprint Cup dr iver Jeff Gordon and Indianapolis 500 racers A.J.Foyt ,Al Unser and Rick Mears,who was Johnsons childhood he ro. Formula One driver Michael Schumacher won five time s in the United States Grand Prix,which was run on th e tracks road course instead of the oval where the o thers won their races. Among the amazing aspects of Johnsons successes of late is how quickly hes run up his numbers. He didnt win his first Brickyard until 2006,and he claimed the first of his five Cup titles that same year. Along the way,hes accumulated 58 points-paying Spr int Cup wins,the first of which came at Auto Club Speed way in the 10th race of the 2002 season. Johnson said in his winners interview that he neve r dreamed hed have the success hes been having. Man,you just hope to race [at Indianapolis],Johns on said.To come here and win is a huge honor.And to w in four four wins! Im at a loss for words.It was a total team effort.We put it on them.It was nice. Johnson wasnt the only driver from the Hendrick Motorsports stable flexing muscle at Indy.Dale Earn hardt Jr.finished fourth and took the Sprint Cup points l ead from Matt Kenseth,who was involved in a crash withJoey Logano and finished 35th.Earnhardt,who leads i n Sprint Cup points for the first time since Septembe r of 2004,said hes proud of his teams efforts all seas on. All season long weve been working hard and finish ing well,he said.That is symbolic of how well weve d one. Im proud of that.I have felt that way about our po sition in points all season long. But Earnhardt said he needs to win more races.If we want to win the championship,we have to,he said.I imagine we can win a couple races in Chase. I dont know if finishing fourth or fifth is going to do it.Well just have to see.Wed like to step it up just a lit tle bit more. If history is any indication,hell have some strong competition from Johnson.The three previous times he w on at the Brickyard in 2006,2008 and 2009 he went on to win the championship. The inaugural NationwideSeries race at IndianapolisMotor Speedway occurred before mostly empty grandstands,but there were some compellingstorylines that played out duringthe Indiana 250. Many in the sport are lamenting the moving of the Nationwide racefrom nearby Lucas Oil Raceway(formerly Indianapolis RacewayPark),where the race regularlydrew a packed house,although thegrandstands there are muchsmaller. But as Indiana 250 winner Brad Keselowski pointed out,racing andwinning at the Brickyard is some-thing to cherish. The Brickyard means so much to all of us as race car drivers,andto the sport in general,he said.Ittranscends three different forms ofauto racing,whether its IndyCarin the United States,F1 and theirhistory here,and then,obviously,with stock cars and their initialtime here to the current date,from94 on Im glad to be some small part of that with winning the inauguralNationwide race. Keselowskis victory gave his car owner Roger Penske his firstNASCAR victory at a track wherehes one of the dominant car own-ers of all time with 15 victories inthe Indianapolis 500. The race had moments of drama,two of which involved controversial starts. On the initial start,Kyle Busch appeared to get the jump on pole-sitter Kasey Kahne but was notpenalized. Then,late in the race,Elliott Sadler lost his chance to win anda good many points when he waspenalized for jumping a restart. Sadler,who finished 15th,told reporters afterward that hethought NASCAR erred in penaliz-ing him,and he told NASCARsvice president of competition,Robin Pemberton,just that afterthe race. Robin Pemberton just told me, right out of his mouth,I did notjump the start,he said.This is avery tough penalty.Very hard toswallow at the inaugural race hereat Indy as I race to win. Sadler remains atop the Nationwide standings,but his leaddropped from 11 points to just oneover second-place Austin Dillon. Dillons younger brother Ty Dillon,a Camping World TruckSeries rookie,also ran theNationwide race at the Brickyard.He ran near the front for most ofthe race and finished an impres-sive third. Just coming here,if you would have given me a top 10,I wouldhave been ecstatic,he said.I kindof learned a little bit about myselfthis week.I did this last year withthe Truck Series,and just wentinto those last three races in theTruck Series last year with anopen attitude,just wanting to havefun and drive a race car.I had nopressure with the points. And then the same thing this year with no pressure with thepoints,just wanted to have funhere at a historic track like Indy.Itmade me a better driver andopened my mind more to adjust inthe race car I think this weekend did a lot for me in confidence and how Imgoing to approach the CampingWorld Truck Series from this pointon. There was plenty of pre-race hype over Danica Patricks returnto the Brickyard,where she hadsome of her best runs in theIndyCar Series,but she wasntmuch of a factor in the Nationwiderace. Her race ended early after contact with Reed Sorenson on Lap39. I think I just tapped [Sorenson] a little bit,and when I did,he slidsideways,Patrick said.I tried togo around him and didnt quite getby him and spun around,and,unfortunately,that was it.I amsorry if I did anything to affect hisday,but I didnt mean to. She finished 35th and dropped to 10th in the Nationwide stand-ings,252 points out of the lead. Money-wise,Michael Annett was the big winner on Saturday atIndianapolis.His sixth-place finishearned him a $100,000 bonus fromseries sponsor Nationwide in theDash 4 Cash program thatrewards Nationwide Series regu-lars in select races. Annett said he struggled early in his first race on the historictrack but was able to gain speed atthe end. Its really,really tough,he said. There are so many chances toscrew up here.It is really hard toput together a whole lap,and ittook me till about Lap 20 to 30 toreally start doing that and thenstart being able to pull it off andfigure out what I need to do topass cars,which is the hardestthing to do here. I put a lot of notes in the book for late in the race,and we used itand put ourselves in a position toget this check. NOTEBOOK Edwards hires new crew chief Throughout NASCAR history,it has taken a great driver-crew chief combination to run up bignumbers in the win column. Richard Petty got the overwhelming majority of his race victories and championships with hiscousin Dale Inman as his crew chief.DavidPearson had his best runs with Leonard Wood.Jeff Gordon dominated the Sprint Cup circuitwith Ray Evernham on the pit box,and JimmieJohnson has been the driver to beat in recentyears with Chad Knaus as his only full-timecrew chief,replaced only temporarily while undersuspension from NASCAR. Carl Edwards and his long-time crew chief Bob Osborne both have been at their best togeth-er,but now,for the second time in his Cup career,Edwards is working with a new crew chief. Chad Norris has taken over the underperforming No.99 team much like Wally Brown didseven races into the 2006 season,during anotherstretch of mediocre performance for the usuallycompetitive team. But before the end of the 2006 season, Osborne was back in charge and the team soonresumed its winning ways. Edwards indicated in a gathering with the press at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last weekthat Osborne might not be gone for good thistime either. What we are trying to do right now is make the team better and fix any issues we mighthave,which we dont even know exactly what theissues are,said Edwards,who is in danger ofmissing the Chase this year after tying TonyStewart in points last year but losing the title onthe tie-breaker of race wins.If we dont do anybetter here,and Bob is up to it,we will probablyput Bob right back in as soon as he is able.If thisgoes well,and Bob is doing well in his new role,and that is the best thing for him,and Chad isdoing great,then we will move forward withthat. Nothing is in stone right now.It could be a whole different scenario next week,and we allknow that.We are doing everything we can rightnow to be as good as we can right now. Edwards also emphasized that Osbornes health is a real concern.Osborne cited that asthe main reason hes stepping back to anotherrole at their Roush Fenway Racing team.Nospecifics were given in the press releasesannouncing the change. I cant overstate enough that Bob is a very, very dedicated guy to our sport,and he is goingthrough something right now that would betough for anyone,and for him to have done whathe has done at this level and to have kept itquiet he is just a tough,tough man,Edwardssaid.He is a good friend of mine,so I am reallythinking a lot of him. Edwards had mechanical problems at Indianapolis,finished 29th and dropped to 12thin the standings,61 points out of the top 10.Hisonly realistic chance of making the Chase thisyear is to win at least two of the next six races.
