Authorities also are seeking an arrest warrant for the childs mother. Jonathan Leonel Mesa, 23, 295 NW Commons Loop, was arrested Saturday night and charged with a nonmoving traf fic violation, cruelty toward a child, deliv ery/distribution of drugs, and possession of drugs in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $26,000 bond. Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports said a childcare worker noticed red ness and bruising on the childs buttocks and legs and reported it to a deputy. The childs mother told the childcare atten dant that the 3-year-old received 30 spankings during the course of about 45 minutes the night before for not sitting while she was in time-out, continuing to open the room door and for lying about opening the door. The woman said she and her live-in boy friend, Mesa, were the ones who spanked the child, according to the report. The deputy called officials at the Department of Children and Families, who sent out an emergency report. Initially the deputy was unable to find the suspects but found the womans car at Mesa CCSO: Couple beat child with paint stick Bill Haley Haley, great community leader, dies By LAURA HAMPSON lhampson@lakecityreporter.com Friends and co-workers will remember Bill Haley as a tireless community advocate and a well-versed leader. William James Haley, a longtime Lake City attorney, died Monday night following a lengthy illness. He was 77. A member of the firm of Brannon, Brown, Haley & Bullock, P.A., Haley was elected to two terms as Columbia County attorney and served as the Lake City Board of Realtors attorney for nearly 40 years. Most recently, he served as 2011 Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce president. Dan Gherna, Lake City Board of Realtors president, said Haley used to say he was just a country lawyer, but he was well-read and well-traveled. He was a community leader. He was bril liant, Gherna said. Gherna said Haley was a good friend. We had a good time together, Gherna said. Haley gave his time and expertise to everyone, without expecting anything in return, Gherna said. He was a tireless volunteer who abso lutely loved Lake City and Columbia County. He did everything in his power to make this a better place to live, Gherna said. Haley had been battling Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) for about three years, Gherna said. MDS is a group of disorders caused by poorly formed or dysfunctional blood cells. Recently, Haley developed a fungus in his lungs that spread due to a chemotherapyweakened immunity, Gherna said. He passed away at North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville. Haley was born in Haley, Minn., to the late James William and Julia Stonich Haley. His family moved to Tomahawk, Wis. where he graduated high school. He earned his bache lors degree from the University of Wisconsin and his law degree from Washington & Lee University in Virginia.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA SARASOTA Authorities said theyre investigating the shoot ing death of a southwest Florida home invasion suspect. Sarasota police said Christian Reynolds Robinson, 27, entered a home uninvited early Tuesday morning. Robinson waved a gun at three occupants and told them to leave the house. One of the occupants pulled out a handgun and shot Robinson. Police said the occupant who shot Robinson had a concealed weapons permit. Sarasota County court records show 30 crimi nal cases filed against Robinson since 2001. Skinhead group has local ties WEST PALM BEACH The Anti-Defamation League said the skinhead group the alleged Sikh temple shooter belonged to has ties to Florida. Wade Michael Page, the alleged gunman in the Wisconsin shooting, described himself as a mem ber of the Hammerskins Nation. The ADL, which tracks extremist groups, said that group has a pres ence in Florida, especially in the Orlando area, where its believed to have several dozen members. Page played with Definite Hate, the white suprema cist band affiliated with Hammerskins. ADL says that band has performed at least a half-dozen times in the past decade. Lost hiker bitten by alligator OCALA Florida wild life officials said a woman floating down a river was bitten on the head by an alligator. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said four hik ers were lost Sunday when they began floating down a river in the Ocala National Forest. Wildlife officials said a 6to 8-foot alligator swam up and bit Suzanne Barnes on the head. An inci dent report said the bite appears to be a case of mistaken identity because the alligator immediately let go and swam away. States may face suits over wrecks TALLAHASSEE At least 11 notices of intent to sue the state of Florida have been filed over a series of deadly crashes on Interstate 75. Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles executive director Julie Jones gave that update Tuesday to Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet. Eleven people were killed and 18 hospitalized because of the crashes on a January night near Gainesville. The interstate was covered with smoke and fog. A Florida Department of Law Enforcement report found the Florida Highway Patrol made mistakes in reopening the highway about 30 minutes before the crashes began. Jones said her depart ment will respond Friday to the FDLE report. Environmentalists seek amendment TALLAHASSEE Environmentalists are launching a petition cam paign for a proposed state constitutional amendment that would earmark $10 billion in state funds over 20 years for land and water conservation in Florida. Several groups announced Tuesday they have formed a coalition that will attempt to get the proposal on the 2014 bal lot. They said the Legislature has slashed funding for the Florida Forever program by 97.5 percent allocat ing just $23 million since 2009. Florida Forever is designed to purchase and manage environmentally endangered lands. The amendment would not raise the tax. Bar thinks illegal immigrant is okay TALLAHASSEE An illegal immigrant born in Mexico appears to qualify for a law license, though the Florida Board of Bar Examiners says it still wants an advisory opinion from the state Supreme Court before making a final deci sion. The board initially denied Jose Godinez-Samperios admission to the bar but asked the justices to decide whether being an illegal immigrant disquali fies applicants. The new findings submitted to the Supreme Court on Monday are the result of a request by Godinez-Samperio to consider new information related to his character and fitness before the Supreme Court makes its decision. Godinez-Samperio, 25, graduated from New College, earned a law degree from Florida State and passed the bar exam.

Jeb Bush is urging Mississippi leaders to follow his states example on education changes. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant is signaling his sup port for that approach. Bush spoke Tuesday to a group of Mississippi law makers and others at the Old Capitol in Jackson. He wants the state to consider higher expectations for stu dents, stronger academic standards, more accountabil ity for schools and options such as charter schools and vouchers. Bush says Florida students showed gains using those approaches. Bryant has said he wants the 2013 legislative ses sion to focus on education improvements. Hes sup porting charter schools and a merit pay system for teachers. Bryant says he wants to consider hold ing back third-graders who arent reading on grade level and may want to do the same with underperforming eighth graders. By HANNAH O. BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com The Charter Review approved a proposal from the groups public edu cation subcommittee to advertise the amendments chosen by the committee for the ballot with news paper ads, direct mail and possibly radio spots. The length of what we have here, between each amendment, you really need to hold it in your hands, charter review member Nathan Morgan said in support of direct mailing. An outline of each amend ment and its conditions will also be posted on the coun tys website. The cost for public education of the amend ments is estimated to be $14,499. Chair of the public educa tion subcommittee Bettye Lane said its important to make sure people under stand the amendments. I would like whatever mechanism we can find to make sure these folks get this thing and have it to look at and understand what it is they are voting on, Lane said. The budget for public education was not origi nally calculated into the charter review budget. County commissioners must approve the proposed amount before the Charter Review Commission can proceed.

ONE OPINION Maybe not a tax dodger, but dodging the issue LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Success in business can hardly be defined by a “sound bite” trimmed and targeted during the passionate throes of parti-san politics. Would a person be stereotyped a boor, not to be at all interested in the total speech from which a “quote” is taken? Heaven only knows that a context derived from a complete oration could possibly be relevant. I love my little business! Regrettably, I had no greatly suc-cessful father to extend finance, open doors, influence outcome, network, inspire or lend any sort of support or expertise. Regardless, I worked hard. I tried to be honest, pay atten-tion, be fair and do the right thing every day. My humble service is masonry building. ( Or “masonary” in local parlance). In 31 years, I’ve had only a few unhappy customers and to them I apologize. I long researched and sought to improve every succes-sive job. These days earnings are meager. My little company sur-vives in name. I’m beginning to feel a recovery, thus maintaining “high hopes.” In wonderful Steinhatchee, in 2005 or six, I “lucked” into an optimum job. A general contrac-tor made contact after locating me in the phone book, which of course, I didn’t print. I arrived at the site in my GMC, which I didn’t build. I transported mixers, trailers and other equipment required to complete the project, not one item did I manufacture. I didn’t “crack” the gasoline I purchased. I didn’t construct any of the bridges I crossed daily, nor the highways and byways. With the exception of my son, I did not contribute to the births of any of the women and men that worked so hard to “help me” perform my services. Nor did I contribute to the birth of the insurance agent that promises business perpetu-ity, the marvelous accounting bookkeeper whom keeps me straight with “Caesar”, nor the highway patrol dispatcher and her massive “family” whom pro-vide a safe public environment, nor the women and men in uni-form whom furnish the glue that binds the whole dynamic. Lest I forget, the home and business owners, which without, my busi-ness entity would never have ges-tated. First and last of all, God. He provided the sand, stone, clay, water and our being. Business is a composite of many people and factors. A “giant village” and our “own two hands” are required to build a business.Darrell AndersonLake CitySame sex marriage There’s more bipartisan discussion of same-sex mar-riage rights than ever before. Democrats have taken a formal position of advocacy towards same-sex marriage under the equal rights platform since the Chick-Fil-A debacle. Suddenly, Republicans are scrambling to find arguments to support their claim that same-sex marriage should remain prohibited under law, yet it seems that many only seem to be remaining steadfast to a personal religious ideology. “Homosexuals deserve the same civil rights as heterosexu-als!”, shriek the Democrats. “We must protect the sanctity of marriage!”, flail the Republicans. Both statements are erroneous because A) State recognition of marriage is not a universal human right and B) the state must be unconcerned with reli-gious sanctions, lest the interests of church and state be conjoined. The fact is, if Republicans want to fight gay marriage, they must take the fight to the secular plat-form of the Democrats. Marriage has long been a function of the state, practiced among Christians and non-believers alike. Granted, it can be said that the concept of marriage originally began as a spiritual commitment, but today it is also an economic commitment for incentives from the state. Usually these benefits come in the form of collecting a deceased spouse’s social security, claiming an extra tax exemption for a spouse, and having the right to be covered under a spouse’s health insurance policy, to name a few examples of the costly ben-efits associated with marriage. Marriage is costly for the state if they wish to regulate it. So why does the state regulate and place incentives on heterosexual mar-riage but not homosexual mar-riage? Because marriage between heterosexuals is extremely likely to produce a family with children, and the propagation of a society is within the interests of the state. To secular law, marriage as a legal institution is an eco-nomic covenant with the state; to Christian law, it is a spiritual cov-enant with God. The restriction of marriage between same-sex couples by the State would still be enforced even if marriage had no spiritual definition. State laws are derived from reason, not from faith. The state has good reason for restricting legal marriage unities from same-sex couples; there is no reason for the state to grant them the expensive benefits of marriage unless they’re able to serve some other State interest. Advocates of gay marriage therefore have the burden of proof to demonstrate what those interests are, rather than proclaim discrimination.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Security neededfor thecyberworld Q The Washington Post OPINION Wednesday, August 8, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW S enate Democratic leader Harry Reid has acted quickly to enliven the dog days of August, when Americans’ attention begins to stray from politics, by charging that multimillionaire GOP candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes, presumably income taxes, for 10 years. The source for this is said to be someone with some association with Bain Capital, Romney’s old firm, but Reid won’t identify the source or offer any proof that the charge is true. Nonetheless, he repeated the accusation on the Senate floor. Romney and advisers must have seen something like this coming when he decided not to release his tax returns. He did for one year, 2010, and they show he paid a very attractive rate of 13.9 percent on an income of $21.6 million. It’s good being Mitt Romney, maybe too good. His reason for not releasing more tax informa-tion is that Democrats will root around in the returns and use the information against him. On the friendly confines of Fox, Romney said, “It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate. So I’m looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources and we’ll probably find out it’s the White House.” So far, this has been a remarkably fact-free discussion. If Reid offered no proof of his assertion, neither did Romney. If Reid is making McCarthy-like charges of borderline dishonesty, we voters would like proof. Even more we’d like proof that the White House was behind it. But Obama press secretary Jay Carney did his best to distance the White House from the con-troversy. One who did speak for himself was Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus who elevated the political dialogue by calling Reid “a dirty liar.” Maybe so, but there’s only one way to prove it. Release the tax returns. Either Reid or Priebus will come out of this looking really bad. As for Romney, it will only prove what we already know: He’s a very rich guy with great tax lawyers. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service. Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.com T he latest headline in the 2012 race is that President Obama hates Mitt Romney. The subtext of the story is that the president is in fact afraid of his challenger. According to Politico’s Glenn Thrush in his new campaign e-book, “Obama’s Last Stand,” Mr. Obama “began campaign prepa-rations feeling neutral about Romney,” which “made the 2012 grind bearable and at times even fun.” However, he “quickly developed a genuine disdain” for Mr. Romney, which “stoked Obama’s competitive fire, got his head in the game.” Thus, “hope and change” transformed into hatred and rage. The roots of Mr. Obama’s wrath aren’t ideological. According to another unnamed source, he “didn’t even feel this strongly about conserva-tive, combative House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the Hill Republican he disliked the most” because “at least Cantor stood for something.” Put anoth-er way, Mr. Obama despises Mr. Romney for having a quality that most Americans say they would like to see in a president: the ability to rise above dogmatism and forge compromises. Mr. Obama has shown himself to be completely unable to exercise that kind of leadership. This centrist image conflicts with the Democrats’ fanciful campaign storyline that Mr. Romney is captive of a Republican Party that has become so radical that even Ronald Reagan would be a mod-erate by comparison. Yet the GOP rejected more traditionally conservative candidates in favor of the former governor of liberal Massachusetts, which is hardly evidence of Republican extrem-ism. It shows that the elephants have a bigger tent than the Democratic Party, which these days chiefly represents left-wing activists, public-sector unions, welfare recipients and others who depend on big government and an increasing flow of gov-ernment handouts. Their radical interests are what Mr. Obama stands for. It’s hard to picture Mr. Romney hating anyone. He has a well-earned “good guy” image that frustrates some of his sup-porters who think he should be tougher. There is a differ-ence, however, between com-ing across as tough and being perceived as mean. Mr. Obama’s natural coolness more easily translates into a sense of aloof-ness and disdain. Angry-man Obama will turn off moderate voters already disappointed in his inability to heal the partisan breach as he promised in 2008. Mr. Thrush’s sources also allege that Mr. Obama respected his 2008 opponent, Sen. John McCain, because of his ser-vice record. According to an unnamed senior Obama adviser, “That doesn’t hold true for Romney. He was no [blasphemy deleted] war hero.” It is hard to take that premise seriously. No one with Mr. Obama’s sterling leftist, countercultural creden-tials would have a high degree of respect for a combat veteran, especially someone who fought in the Vietnam War, which liber-als have always disdained as an immoral undertaking. If Mr. Obama didn’t hate Mr. McCain, it was because he knew that he could defeat the Arizonan. The same is not true of Mr. Romney. Mr. Obama’s burning animosity stems from a stiff sense of insecurity. The president detests Mr. Romney because he fears him — and he fears him because he knows Mr. Romney can win. I n the final weeks before Congress left for its August break, Sens. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), took a gamble. They watered down their own cyber-security legislation in hopes of winning passage. But last week on the Senate floor, their compromise died. The sponsors could muster only 52 votes, short of the 60 needed. Mr. Lieberman and Ms. Collins went a long way. Their original legislation would have set mandatory cybersecurity standards for companies that run critical infrastructure, such as electricity, water, nuclear, communications and financial networks. Ripping the heart out of their bill, they made the standards voluntary but still found no takers. The influential U.S. Chamber of Commerce opposed it, saying the legis-lation took an “adversarial” approach to the private sector. The group has endorsed other bills with less rigorous require-ments. This was a moment when the business lobby put its head in the sand. The threat posed to the private sector in cyberspace cannot be wished away — it is large and growing. Most com-panies realize this from their own experience. They are being battered by cyber-exploitations and theft, losing customer records and intellectual proper-ty. Instead of torpedoing legisla-tion, they ought to be leading the way, pressing Congress to act. The net result is that Congress left town with the nation’s critical infrastructure exposed and cyberdefenses still down. When it returns in September, a concerted effort should be made to pass legisla-tion so the government and private sector can begin to face the onslaught, together. Is Obamaafraid ofRomney?

While waiting for backup units, Mesa reportedly got into the car and attempt ed to drive away and the deputy performed a traffic stop. Mesa, who was in the vehicle alone, had a driv ers license that had been suspended eight times. He agreed to leave the vehicle and go back to his apart ment with the deputy. A DCF investigator responded to the scene and spoke to Mesa and the childs mother and con firmed reports about the childs spanking and Mesa showed them the paint stir ring stick. (The DCF investiga tor) found the stick to be extreme and too large for a 3-year-old child, Deputy Joshua Latimer wrote in his report.

Authorities saw a package of K2 -a synthetic form of marijuana -on the kitchen counter and Mesa report edly told Latimer he some times smokes it before he goes to bed. When Latimer looked in Mesas refrigerator he reportedly found items he described as steroids and human growth hormone (HGH). Although the bottles were marked not for human consumption and for labora tory use only, Mesa told the deputy they belonged to him and said they were legal because he purchased them online. Mesa was then arrested and taken to jail.

After moving to Lake City in 1963, he joined the law firm of Brannon, Brown, Norris & Vocell. Haley served as munici pal judge in Lake City from 1965-66 and Columbia County attorney from 196977.

Associated PressLONDON — Aly Raisman’s reaction was right on. She put together a crisp floor routine Tuesday, then mouthed, “Wow” after she saluted the judges. Wow, indeed.Raisman became the first U.S. woman to win Olympic gold on floor, and she picked up a bronze on balance beam on the final day of the gymnastics competition at the London Olympics. “It definitely went better than I thought it would,” Raisman said. Raisman just missed a medal in the all-around, fin-ishing with the same score as Russia’s Aliya Mustafina but dropping to fourth on a tiebreak. She was on the right end of the rules for beam Tuesday, bumping Romania’s Catalina Ponor off the podium. The U.S. captain initially finished fourth, with a score of 14.966. But she questioned it, and judges added an extra tenth to her routine’s difficulty after a review. That gave her and Ponor identical scores of 15.066, but Raisman got the bronze because her execution score was higher. “A gold medal is a gold medal, but I definitely felt like (beam) was redemp-tion from the other night in the all-around,” Raisman said. In their first Olympics, April Ross and Jennifer Kessy will play for the gold medal in an all-American beach volleyball final. In their final Olympics together, Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor are playing for something more. “We want to seal the deal that we’re the best team that’s ever happened,” Walsh Jennings said Tuesday night after they advanced to their third consecutive Olympic gold medal game with a 22-20, 22-20 victory over China. “Misty has changed my life. I just love her. I want to win tomorrow for us.” A few hours later, Kessy and Ross beat the topseeded Brazilians in a persis-tent rain to join their fellow Californians in Wednesday night’s final. Ross and Kessy rallied from a first-set loss and a four-point deficit in the second to beat reigning world champions Juliana and Larissa 15-21, 21-19, 15-12. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comDelighted by what he called the best turnout of parents during his time at Columbia High, head foot-ball coach Brian Allen pre-sented his vision for the future of the program. Parents and players met Tuesday in the CHS auditorium, where they also heard a presentation from Columbia County Quarterback Club presi-dent-elect Alan Masters and trainer Ben Wood. Allen introduced varsity coaches Dennis Dotson, Mitch Shoup, Timmy Jernigan, Quinton Callum, Doug Peeler, Ta’mar Jernigan and Andy Giddens. “We have 15 varsity and junior varsity coaches and I am extremely happy to have them on board,” Allen said. Allen is entering the second year as head coach at his alma mater. “I am excited to come back to Lake City and be a part of this program,” Allen said. “We were the winningest program in the state. Bradenton Southeast may have trumped us by a couple of games, but there is no reason we can’t build a championship program year in and year out.” Allen said one dream was to have the stands packed with 7,500 people like it was for the opening of Tiger Stadium his junior year in a game against Suwannee High. He would like field turf and a second level on the Jones Fieldhouse to increase the weight room area and have upstairs for offices and meeting rooms. “I know the only way to do that is to bring wins and build support,” Allen said. Allen said he had experience playing under great coaches like Bobby Bowden and John Fox and he “tried to learn something day in and day out.” “We can’t go 15-0 if we don’t have good facilities and we can’t have lack of support from the admin-istration and the commu-nity for a championship program,” Allen said. Allen said he works closely with the Quarterback Club and he and his staff try to hold up their end of the bargain for education and citizenship. “Being a student comes first,” Allen said. “You can’t be an athlete without grades. All our coaches are big on discipline. We are trying to mold them into the young men you want them to be. With that, winning will come. I prom-ise you.” Allen asked parents to be active in the Quarterback Club and support the team at games. He said the phone lines for all the coaches are always open. Allen also asked the families to keep football in perspective. “High school is still a time to have fun,” Allen said. “It is a time to build camaraderie and have last-ing memories for a lifetime. That is what it’s all about at this level.” Masters listed the major expenses of the Quarterback Club’s $90,000 budget and encouraged corporate sponsorships and ad buys and memberships at all levels to meet the expenses. Volunteers will be crucial with cutbacks in funds. Wood talked about the emphasis on concussions, heat problems and asked injuries be reported to him or a coach. There is a proto-col set up for concussions. “I can’t stress enough to keep your kids hydrated, he said.

Jerry Perkins managed to keep his game on track on a tough wet course in the Friday Dogfight. His -1 performance was enough for a first-place finish. Most weeks a score of at least +5 is needed to win; however, in the tough con-ditions no one could pull their assigned points so Perkins’ -1 slipped by the trio of Joe Herring, Ronnie Ash and Tim Tortorice who shared second place. Closest to pin winners were: Ponds No. 3, Jack Tuggle; Ponds No. 5, Herring; Creeks No. 2, Gerald Smithy; Creeks No. 6, Larry Boone. Skin win-ners were Chet Carter (2), Ralph Minster, Herring, Boone and Tortorice. The Wednesday Blitz was a runaway for Keith Hudson with his +10 per-formance. Frog Niewisch was second at +7, with Bill Walls taking third at +5. Skins winners were Chet Carter (4), Randy Heavrin (2), Niewisch and Hudson. In Wednesday scramble action, the winning team was Gary Newcomb, Tony Johnson and Brian Shead at 4 under par. The big pot was on the line, but with only two holes in play and it rolled over again. It will be in play today at 5:30 p.m. Sign up by 5 p.m. to get a shot at the money. The Lady Tiger threeperson scramble is Saturday. Put together a team and support Columbia High girls golf. The Campus USA Quail Shoot Tournament is Aug. 25-26. Chad Hunter tapped in a one-inch eagle putt on his second hole and went on to post a round of 68 that was good for +17 points and a blow-out win in A flight of Saturday’s blitz. Chad’s closest competition came from his dad, Terry, whose fine +9 score was only enough for a dis-tant second-place finish. Ken Radcliffe +4, was in third. The B flight belonged to Shelton Keen at +9, a three-point edge over Don Combs and Dave Blair. John Brewer, Randy Sommers and Brian Sneed tied for fourth at +3. Keen had an eagle on his card to join Chad Hunter, Timmy Rogers and David Rhodes in a four-way split of the skins game. Wednesday’s blitz featured another A flight runaway win, this time by Keith Shaw, whose +11 outdistanced second place Steve Patterson by six points. Jordan Hale was two shots farther back in third. Roger Mitzel took first place in B flight at +9, four points ahead of Mike Jacobs. Donald Roberts, Don Howard and Don Combs tied for fourth with +4. Dennis Crawford and Bob Wheary collected a nice payoff with the only two skins. Tom Wade and Bob Wheary shared first in the Sunday blitz with +2. Shelton Keen was a stroke back in third. Closest to the pin winners were John Brewer on No. 17, Wade on No. 3 and Dave Mehl on No. 7. Brewer and Steve Thomas each picked up two skins. Steve Patterson and Mickey Wilcox had one apiece. The LGA selected a blitz format this week. Jan Davis claimed the win with the day’s only plus score of +2. Shirley Edelstein, Gloria Rowley and Nicole Ste-Marie pulled their points on the nose for a second-place tie. The Good Old Boys put three close matches in the book. Match one was the closest contest and ended in a 7-6 win for the team of Marc Risk, Jim Bell and Bobby Simmons over the team of Barney Hart, Emerson Darst and Paul Davis. Match two found the team of Ed Snow, Jeff Maynes, Ed McKnight and Dan Stephens taking a 7-5 victory over the team of Stan Woolbert, Rob Brown, Carl Wilson and Tom Elmore. The final match also finished with a two-point edge for the team of Dennis Hendershot, Dave Cannon, Eli Witt and Merle Hibbard over the team of Monty Montgomery, Rhea Hart, Jim Stevens and Bill Wheeler. Hart led all players with a round of 40-35-75. Risk was a shot back with a 38-38-76. Other good scores were posted by Montgomery (77), Bell (78), Snow (78), Brown (79) and Woolbert (79). Hibbard’s even par win on the front nine included an eagle on No 8. Stevens (38) and Witt (39) chal-lenged the winner. Hart, Wilson and Stephens tied with 39 on the back nine.

Prize money: TBA ($8 million in 2011). Winner’s share: TBA ($1.445 mil lion in 2011). Defending champion: Keegan Bradley. Last year: Keegan Bradley became only the third player in the last 100 years to win a major in his first try by winning a playoff at Atlanta Athletic Club. Five shots behind with three holes to play, Bradley went birdie-birdie-par for a 68, which got him into a three-hole playoff when Jason Dufner produced a late col lapse. Dufner made three straight bogeys and finished with a par to join Bradley at 8-under 272. Bradley made a 4-foot birdie putt on the 16th, Dufner three-putted for bogey on the 17th to fall two behind and Bradley closed him out with a par. Tiger Woods missed the cut for the first time in a PGA Championship. Kiawah champions: United States (1991 Ryder Cup), Ireland (1997 World Cup, Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley), Colin Montgomerie (1997 World Cup, medalist), South Africa (2003 World Cup, Trevor Immelman and Rory Sabbatini). Key statistic: Since the world ranking began in 1986, the PGA Championship has had only nine champions who were among the top 10 in the world, the fewest of any major. Noteworthy: Sixteen players have won the last 16 majors, a streak that does not include Tiger Woods. Quoteworthy: “There’s not a guy standing on the range that wouldn’t put it head-and-shoulders over any tournament in the world, apart from the other three major championships.” — Graeme McDowell on the PGA Championship.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 24-year-old man with a good job, a good relation-ship, a level head on my shoulders and a great fam-ily. Life has had its ups and downs, but I have always been optimistic and appre-ciative of my blessings. My issue is with me. After 10 months or so of dating a woman, I always lose my physical attrac-tion to her. It has been my downfall in both of my previous relationships. My current relationship is with a woman I should marry. She’s gorgeous, intelligent, and we have an incredible level of communication. I could not imagine a better partner. But my lack of desire to have a constant physical relationship is driving her away. I occasionally initiate, but I’m usually not in the mood. I’d be happy with every week or every other week, but I’m only 24. Is this crazy? I know I’m making her feel unwanted, and it has become a sensi-tive subject for me. Is this a sign that I’m not supposed to be in this relationship? Other women excite me, but I have no desire to be with someone else. What are your thoughts on this? -CONFUSED IN THE SOUTH DEAR CONFUSED: Talk about this with your doctor and have your hormone levels checked. If they are where they should be, it may be that you simply have a low sex drive. Either that, or you crave what no one woman can give any man, and that’s variety. DEAR ABBY: Last year I lost someone very dear to me, my 5-year-old broth-er. I never knew a child who died before, but when it’s your little brother it makes it worse. The thing is, I’m the oldest and I have always tried to hide my emotions. I try to act like everything is OK because I don’t want people to know I’m falling apart. It’s bad enough for my mom and my grandpar-ents. I don’t want to make it worse. People say God only gives you what you can handle, but how are you supposed to handle an innocent child’s death? -GRIEVING IN VIRGINIA DEAR GRIEVING: Please accept my sympa-thy for your loss. A healthy way to deal with the emo-tions you are experienc-ing is to talk about them. Ideally, it would be with your parents. However, because you’re afraid it will be too painful for them, you need to find another adult with whom you can vent. It is important to let the feelings you’re bottling up come out because they are normal. Releasing them will help ease your pain. A counselor at school can help, or if you’d be more comfortable with someone else, talk to your cler-gyperson. DEAR ABBY: You frequently recommend that readers seek therapy. I’ve been in therapy for eight years and see very little progress. Do you have any statistics that prove how helpful therapy actually is? -SKEPTICAL IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR SKEPTICAL: I don’t have any statistics -but I do have some advice for you: CHANGE THERAPISTS! After eight years and little progress, you’re with the wrong person. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make every move count and you will get back all sorts of favorable input. A unique but diplo-matic approach will show onlookers that you know what you’re doing. Don’t let a personal relationship stand in the way of an opportunity. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A connection from your past can lead to important changes in your financial future and the way you earn your living. Discuss your concerns with someone you trust to give you good feedback, but follow your gut feeling in the end. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): High expectations will put you on the spot and push you to do your best. Your competitive drive will help you outmaneuver any-one who challenges you. Present your ideas with confidence and you will get the support you need. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a moment to go over what you are trying to accomplish. It’s hard to make headway while try-ing to go against the cur-rent. Look for the path that will give you passage. Take charge and be confident. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotional issues will mount if you don’t address weakness that can lead to failure. Accept the fact that changes might be required in order to reach your goals. Decisions must be made carefully, with every-one’s input and concerns in mind. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Find out firsthand what’s entailed before getting involved in a joint effort that may not have been thoroughly thought out. Excess will turn out badly. You are better off diversifying rather than putting all you’ve got into one idea. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on friend-ship, travel and research-ing something or someone you want to pursue. Make changes that will clear the way for future endeavors. Don’t put up with com-plaints or ultimatums that will stand between you and happiness. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A moneymaking idea will pay off with a little push. Something you left unfinished can play a role in the way you live in the future. Readdress the pos-sibilities that exist and how you can turn a little into a lot. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Discuss money matters, deals, contracts and settlements and you will come up with a work-able solution. Alterations to your home or lifestyle will help you get ahead. A service or skill you offer can be adapted to fit today’s economic needs. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Talks will lead to greater complications. Get your priorities straight before you venture into a discussion that has the potential to leave you with greater financial responsi-bilities or burdens. Avoid unfamiliar people and places. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone you thought you could count on will let you down. Added respon-sibilities will develop. Take care of matters on your own and you will prove your capabilities and build greater confidence. Don’t take an emotional or finan-cial risk. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Follow your heart and turn your dreams into real-ity. Stick to basics and take baby steps until you reach your goals. Trust in what you know and do best, and say no to anyone offering the impossible. Be wise and win. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
