By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Local authorities are investigating a Thursday morning break-in at a central Columbia County restaurant where two male suspects allegedly smashed the establish ments glass front door, went into the business and moved the safe. However, nothing was reported stolen from the restaurant. Deputies were dis patched to an alarm at the Subway restaurant, 4417 SW State Road 47, around 3 a.m. Thursday. The front door glass was shattered, said Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information offi cer. The safe from the business was moved to the front door area, but not stolen. Seifert said authorities utilized K9 units to track the suspects, but were unable to locate them. He said the investiga tion is ongoing. Detectives are still reviewing video sur veillance, Seifert said. There are no known suspects at this time. Two males are all that we know.

BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com Columbia County com missioners approved a request from the Economic Development Advisory Board to lend $86,000 to CMS Staffing, a local medi cal staffing company, for renovations to move into a larger facility. The recommendation was the first issued by the EDAB under the local incentive ordinance, the document that gives the EDAB the authority to evaluate and make recommendations to the board of county com missioners concerning eco nomic development. This is a way to help our local businesses grow, county commissioner Ron Williams said. Its a win, win situation for local busi nesses and this commu nity. The recommendation outlines a loan for the busi ness, awarded at zero per cent interest and amortized over a 10-year period. CMS Staffing plans to create 22 new permanent jobs with salaries at 182 per cent in excess of current per capita income rates. EDAB legal consultant Joel Foreman said the loan will be secured at minimum by personal property pur chased with loan. The county is protected through this if in fact there is a default, Foreman said. Commissioner Rusty DePratter commended the EDAB for their efforts. I think the reason the economic development board was created was to do just this, DePratter said. Commissioner Stephen Bailey agreed, saying, I have absolutely no second thoughts whatever of doing this.

Hillsborough County deputies say the reporter received a text Wednesday saying the person had to make threats to be heard and was going to blow up a child care center. The cen ter was searched, but no devices were found. Deputies figured out that the text message was sent by a woman named Recia Henry, who they say admitted to sending the threat to the reporters phone. Henry was charged with threatening to discharge a destructive device. She was being held at the Hillsborough County Jail, and it wasnt immediately known whether she had an attorney. Reality contestant gets sentence TAMPA A man who once appeared on Bravos Millionaire Matchmaker TV show has been sen tenced to eight years in federal prison for fraud. The Tampa Tribune reports that Michael Prozer was not a multi-mil lionaire when he showed off a private jet and a sprawling mansion on the TV show. Authorities said those things were facades propped up by money hed swindled and people hed conned. Prozer was sentenced Thursday to eight years and six months in prison for seven federal crimes, including conspiracy, and wire, bank and mail fraud. Prozer admitted to swindling a now-defunct Georgia bank out of a $3 million loan that he never repaid. Prozer paid a code fendant $25,000 to falsify a document claiming he had $20 million on deposit that could be used as collateral. DOC sued for not offering kosher MIAMI The fed eral government has sued Floridas Department of Corrections for not offer ing kosher meals to all prison inmates. In its lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in Miami, federal officials say that by refusing to offer the strict religious diet in line with Jewish beliefs, the state forces hundreds of its prisoners to violate their core religious beliefs on a daily basis. The Justice Department says Florida is violating a federal law that prohibits state and local govern ments imposing burdens on prisoners ability to worship. The government wants the kosher meal pro gram reinstated. A message left Thursday morning for the state cor rections spokeswoman was not immediately returned. 1 dead, 2 rescued when boat sinks FORT MEADE Divers found the body of a central Florida boater who went missing after his boat sank in Lake Hendry. Polk County Sheriffs officials say three men were fishing on the lake Wednesday night when their 10-foot John boat sank. The Orlando Sentinel reports the sheriffs office received a distress call shortly after 7 p.m. Two men were rescued and deputies and divers began searching for the missing boater. No further details were immediately available. Counties plan for BP oil spill fines PANAMA CITY BEACH Leaders of Floridas 23 Gulf Coast counties said Thursday they want to stick together and fight for their share of a potential $5 billion to $20 billion windfall from fines levied against BP and other com panies involved in the mas sive 2010 oil spill. Federal officials and the companies are mired in litigation and negotiations to determine the amount of fines for violations of the Clean Water Act. The fine, based on the size of the spill and the extent of each companys negligence, could bring millions to individual Florida counties. The Florida Association of Counties hopes to organize the eight Florida counties most affected by the spill and 15 counties that had lesser impacts into a consortium that will determine how the money is divided and spent. The group held a pre liminary meeting about the plan on Thursday. We have no idea how soon the federal dollars will flow. They could reach a settlement in two weeks or it could take three years, Chris Holley, executive director of the association, told the group.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 17-18, 2012 3A 3A FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH LAKE CITY INVITES ALL SCHOOL CHILDREN TO A BACK TO SCHOOL BASH Saturday, August 18th 2 PM PLAY CARNIVAL GAMES FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES Pens Pencils Crayons Marker Sets Folders FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH 697 SW BAYA AVENUE FELLOWSHIP HALL PHONE 386-752-0670 Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Florida election offi cials announced Thursday that they have signed a formal agreement with federal authorities to let the state use an immigra tion database to screen voters. State officials have for months been seek ing approval to use the database to see if some registered voters were non-U.S. citi zens and ineligible to vote. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security agreed in principle to let the state use the database earlier this summer but it did not sign a binding agreement until this week. The departments database tracks anyone who has entered the country legally but it does not include information on illegal immigrants or natural-born citizens. State officials will initially use the data base to screen the names of some 2,600 registered voters the state initially suspected were ineligible. The state distributed this list to county election officials back in April. But many counties stopped using that list after find ing it contained more than 500 people who were citizens. The list did lead to the indictment of a Canadian citizen on charges of illegally registering and voting in Broward County. State officials also plan to slowly begin to compare drivers license informa tion and voter registration data to see if there are other potentially ineligible voters. This list of names would then be checked against the federal system known as the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or SAVE, database We have an obligation to ensure Floridas voter rolls are accurate and accessing the SAVE database greatly improves our ability to accomplish that goal, as well as ensure the overall integrity of our elections, said Secretary of State Ken Detzner in a statement. It will likely cost Florida thousands of dollars to go ahead with its voter purge since the state will have to pay the federal government .50 cents for every name it checks on the immigration database. The issue has pitted the Democratic Obama administration against the Republican administration of Gov. Rick Scott, a conservative with tea party sup port. State will use database to screen immigrant voters Associated Press GREER, S.C. Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney declared Thursday he has paid at least 13 percent of his income in federal taxes every year for the past decade, offering that new detail while still decrying a small-minded fascination over returns he will not release. President Barack Obamas campaign shot back in doubt: Prove it. Campaigning separately, Romney and running mate Paul Ryan also scrambled to explain their views on overhauling Medicare, the health care program relied on by millions of seniors. Romney, the former company CEO, set up a whiteboard to make his case with a marker, while lawmaker Ryan resorted to congressional process lan guage to explain why his budget plan includes the same $700 billion Medicare cut that he and Romney are assailing Obama for endorsing. Essentially, Ryan said, he had to do it because Obama did it first. Politically, both topics tie into major elements of the presidential race less than three months before the election: how well the candidates relate to the daily concerns and to the life circumstances of typi cal voters. Democrats are using the tax issue to raise doubts about Romneys trustworthiness or, as Republicans contend, to dis tract from a weak economic recovery under Obama. Romneys comments in South Carolina at a news conference designed to focus on Medicare showed that he remains sensitive to criticism of his tax payments but still is determined to release no more than two years of records despite contrary advice from some promi nent Republicans. The Obama campaign has aired an ad that, with out evidence, raises the prospect that Romney paid no taxes some years. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., elevated that suggestion by claiming, also without proof, that an anonymous source told him Romney had not paid taxes for 10 years. I did go back and look at my taxes and over the past 10 years I never paid less than 13 percent, Romney told reporters after he land ed in South Carolina for a fundraising event. I think the most recent year is 13.6 or something like that. So I paid taxes every single year. Aides later said Romney meant to say 13.9 percent, the amount he already dis closed for his 2010 federal return. On average, middle income families, those mak ing from $50,000 to $75,000 a year, pay 12.8 percent of their income in federal taxes, according to the non partisan Joint Committee on Taxation. In 2010 and 2011, Romney made about $21 million a year. Romney is able to keep his tax rate low because most of his income is from investments, which are generally taxed at a lower rate than wages. That type of legal tax figuring is something Obama has pro posed changing, although his campaign notably said nothing about Romneys self-described tax rate itself. Instead, the campaign targeted only Romneys truthfulness, refusing to accept his answer and pressuring him to release years of earlier tax returns. Prove it, said Obama spokeswoman Lis Smith. Given Mitt Romneys secrecy about his returns, coupled with the revela tions in just the one return we have seen to date and the inconsistencies between this one return and his other financial dis closures, he has forfeited the right to have us take him just at his word. Reids office said much the same. Romney demand ed that Reid put up the name of his anonymous source. Given the challenges that America faces 23 million people out of work, Iran about to become nucle ar, one out of six Americans in poverty the fascina tion with taxes Ive paid I find to be very small-mind ed, Romney said. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have released their returns for the years since 2000. The Obamas paid 20.5 percent in federal income taxes in 2011. Ryan, meanwhile, found himself doing his own explaining. He and Romney have launched a new strat egy this week of criticiz ing Obama for taking more than $700 billion in Medicare funds to help pay for his health care overhaul. Yet those same cuts are in a House Republican budget blue print authored by Ryan. A reporter pressed him on the issue during a stop at a hot dog restaurant in Warren, Ohio. His explanation was that the Medicare cuts were part of the existing base line budget, including the Obama health care law he opposes. It gets a little wonky, but it was already in the baseline, Ryan said. We would never have done it in the first place. Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney writes on a white board as he talks about Medicare during a news conference at Spartanburg International Airport, Thursday. Romney says he always paid at least 13 percent taxes Associated Press

Aside from the continu-ing travails of the nation’s newspapers, the “business,” as we liked to call it, has lost some of its leading lights, and the struggle for the people’s right to know is worse off because of it. Alfred Lord Tennyson, in relating the death of Arthur, said, “The old order changeth.” In this case, it hasn’t been for the better. It is hard to imagine how report-ing on public affairs has been enhanced by the art of blogging or tweeting without the benefit of measured thought or the vetting of facts. But that is the future, God help us, of a profession once proudly dedicated to the proposi-tion that the best defense of lib-erty is an informed populace. All the news that’s fit to tweet -you have to be kidding. If that seems a bit melodramatic, so be it. Most of us believed in the mission, and that inspired us to keep working even with the enormous gap between what we made and what we might have earned exerting the same energy in other endeavors. It wasn’t for the money. It was for the love of the game and the conviction we were part of something really important. Few epitomized that dedication more than four of our best who left us after years of service to the First Amendment. David Broder, the king of Washington punditry, slipped away in March of 2011, leaving a major hole in coverage of the national political scene. First for the old Washington Star and then for The Washington Post, Broder chronicled and analyzed the elec-torate’s twists and turns and its choices for public office perhaps better than anyone in the history of journalism. He translated the most byzantine scenarios for us and did so in simple, straightfor-ward Midwestern English. And he was disconcertingly right in his predictions. Then there was Jim McCartney, whose unabashed liberality and toughness in decades of accurate and inspired Washington reporting was a daily must for readers of the Chicago Daily News and then Knight Ridder newspapers. He was a bon vivant with an Irish charm hard to match even when he knew he was dying of cancer and he always could be counted on to tell the truth. He died in May of 2011. Last month, Bill Raspberry also moved on. He was a philoso-pher, teacher and voice of reason in civil rights, and his Washington Post columns were journalistic gems couched in the literate but plain speak of his Southern and Midwestern roots. After his retirement, Duke University students benefited from his knowledge -as we all had through his friendship and camaraderie. Then last Saturday came news of the passing of Jim Naughton, the brilliant clown prince of our often-irreverent trade. He was the guy who never took himself too seriously, and his gentle pranks kept us grinning through the explosive 1970s as nothing else could. Examples abound: The sheep he put in the room of a fel-low reporter, the chicken head he wore at a presidential press conference, the cheap lighter he “stole” from me but claimed for years and years that he hadn’t. How can one not love a guy who tells his editors one morn-ing that he is on the trail of a story about the planet Uranus and then sends them a tele-gram late that afternoon saying, “Scratch Uranus, have gone to Philadelphia.” That was on his final day at the New York Times, which he left for the Philadelphia Inquirer. But don’t be fooled. From his days at the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Times and the Inquirer, Naughton was one of the best pure reporters and edi-tors who ever struck a typewriter key or put a pencil to copy, a perceptive witness to the pass-ing parade who never lost sight of what his job was. He passed along the insights and enthusi-asm in his last gig as president of the respected Poynter Institute. Yeah, it’s been a tough couple of years for journalism. The melancholy one normally feels in these dog days of summer has intensified with the sad realiza-tion that the “old order” may never be sufficiently replaced. N ational security and foreign policy have received short shrift in the 2012 presi-dential election campaign. Mitt Romney made a quick swing through Britain, Israel and Poland to suggest he would repair strained relations with America’s closest allies. President Barack Obama has repeatedly reminded voters that he gave the order to kill Osama bin Laden. That’s about it. Consequential international issues should be part of the debate. Among them: In Seoul on March 26 Obama was caught on tape assuring then-Russian presi-dent Dmitry Medvedev, Russian strongman Vladimir Putin’s fac-totum, that he would have “more flexibility” after the U.S. presi-dential election. He stressed that this would be “my last election” -implying that once that chore was out of the way he would no longer need worry about voters and what they think. What was Obama promising to be more flexible about? The microphone picked up the phrase: “these issues -but particularly missile defense.” Putin, of course, has long been adamant that the U.S. leave itself permanently vulnerable to a Russian missile attack, that the U.S. not use its cutting-edge technology to protect people and property from offen-sive missiles that might by fired by Russians. Even good reporters persistently get this wrong. They talk about Putin’s “fears” that American mis-sile defenses would be “aimed” at Russia. But American missile defenses can be aimed at only one thing: missiles targeting America or America’s allies. You aim a spear; you don’t aim a shield. There are Americans who agree with Putin, arguing that the Cold War doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) worked well and should be main-tained. On the other side are those who contend that we now have the know-how to prevent offensive missiles fired by any nation from reaching their intend-ed victims, and that we should put this knowledge to use -for both strategic and moral reasons. Election campaigns are meant to be great battles of ideas. Surely, decisions about the strategy for defending American lives are worth a speech or two. One also has to wonder: If, a year or so from now, Americans learn what Obama was telling the Kremlin and don’t like it, will they ask why no one -not the “watchdogs” in the major media, not their repre-sentatives in Congress, and not even the president’s opponent -made a serious effort to warn them? D on’t look now, but gas prices are beginning to bite hard again. That’s bad news for President Obama, who, until now, might have thought he had gotten lucky when prices dropped earlier in this critical election year. As the energy issue makes the campaign trail bumpier, Mr. Obama has no one to blame but himself. The average price of a gallon of gas at the pump has jumped to $3.70, more than 30 cents higher than just six weeks ago. This means the cost has climbed more than halfway back to its high for the year, which was $3.94 in April. Market analysts point the finger at a host of fac-tors for the rapid escalation, including fears of conflict with Iran, summer-driving-season increases, a better-than-expected July jobs report that boosted oil futures and, most recently, a California refinery fire that could reduce West Coast gas supplies by nearly 10 percent. Some gas stations in the Los Angeles area already are selling fuel at $4.50 a gallon. Underlying the immediate reasons for repeated price spikes over the course of Mr. Obama’s 31/2 years in office are his per-sistent moves to choke off fossil-fuel production while claiming to do the opposite. The president’s purported “all of the above” ener-gy policy doesn’t apply to bounti-ful resources below ground. The disparity between White House word and deed shouldn’t go unnoticed. It’s not bad luck that has caused gas prices to soar from $1.95 when Mr. Obama took office but the result of deliberate efforts by his left-wing adminis-tration to drive up pump costs to make greenie energy sources appear affordable by compari-son. Americans are feeling the drag on their bottom line as the Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index fell last week to a two-month low. “We can’t wait” is what many voters think about a change of national leadership on Election Day. W hile most people were debating Vice President Biden’s infamous Tuesday commentary on shackling, we found ourselves more disheartened by his pandering comment on Social Security, delivered the same afternoon to little response — maybe because pandering is no longer news. As has been by now widely discussed, Mr. Biden told a heavily African American audi-ence that Republican Mitt Romney, if elected president, was “going to put y’all back in chains.” Mr. Romney read the remark as a reference to slavery and proclaimed himself to be highly affronted. Our view: The Biden comment was dumb and uncalled for, the Romney reac-tion tactical and over the top. On the same trip to southern Virginia, Mr. Biden wandered into the Coffee Break Cafe in Stuart. According to the White House pool report, when a diner there said, “I’m glad you all are not talking about doing anything with Social Security,” Mr. Biden responded: “Hey, by the way, let’s talk about Social Security. Number one, I guarantee you, flat guarantee you, there will be no changes in Social Security. I flat guarantee you.” Why is this so depressing? Because, as Mr. Biden knows, Social Security is going broke. If “no changes” are made, then by 2033 the program will not be able to pay benefits as promised. Is “going broke” too strong? Well, let’s ask the experts — the trustees of the Social Security Trust Fund, who include President Obama’s Treasury, labor, and health and human services secretaries. In their annual report in April — deliv-ered, as it happens, to Mr. Biden, in his capacity as Senate president — the trustees noted that the disability portion of the trust fund “becomes exhausted in 2016, so legislative action is needed as soon as possible.” The overall fund, combining retirement and disability, will “become exhausted and unable to pay scheduled benefits in full on a timely basis in 2033.” That leaves Congress with four choic-es, the trustees explained: raise the payroll tax, reduce benefits, devote other revenue to Social Security or some combination. Now, here’s the really depressing part: Everyone agrees that fixing Social Security is the easy one — far easier than reining in Medicare, Medicaid and other health-care costs. In response to our inquiry, White House officials said that Mr. Biden’s “flat guarantee” was not meant to convey a change in administration position, which they said is best understood from Mr. Obama’s 2011 State of the Union address, which called for “a bipartisan solution to strengthen Social Security for future generations.” That speech was hardly a profile in courage: Mr. Obama opposed “slashing” benefits for future retirees. But that presum-ably (if tacitly) left room for trim-ming benefits. The president went further in failed negotia-tions with House Speaker John Boehner last summer, putting on the table changes in the way Social Security cost-of-living adjustments are calculated. By contrast, the vice president’s hearty assurances, like so much in this campaign, will make even more difficult the governing decisions that become more expensive and more painful with every year.

The Tannenbaums were a vital part of Columbia County’s growth, and, in addition to its reputation in fashion, the Lovely Shop was revered for its inclusiveness and concern for customers from all walks of life and economic means.Mrs. T’s respect for her customer was legendary; she always saw the best in people. 6KHRIWHQVDLG,QDVPDOOtown you become part of your customers’ lives.

T he Lord told Jeremiah to write a book. Jeremiah dictated to Baruch the words the Lord spoke to Jeremiah concerning all the things the Lord had said. The Lord had expectations that the house of Judah would read the book, turn from their evil ways and He would forgive them (Jeremiah 36:3). Because Jeremiah was restrict ed from going into the house of the Lord, he gave instructions for Baruch to go in and to read the book to the people of Judah. Jeremiah wanted him to read the book on a day of fasting and when all the people came from their cities (36:6). And so Baruch followed Jeremiahs com mands and read to all the people. In the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah ... in the ninth month, when all the people in Jerusalem and those who came into the city for a fast day were gathered, Baruch read from the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the Lord (36:10). Then one of those who heard Baruch read from the book went to the kings house and told them what he had heard. Word was sent to Baruch requesting him to read the book to those in the kings house. After the kings officials heard Baruch read the book, they were filled with fear and wanted to report the things in the book to the king. After learning that Jeremiah had dictated all the things in the book which Baruch had read, they warned Baruch to take Jeremiah and go hide. The officials told the king about the book. The king ordered one of them to go get the book and come read it to him. When Jehudi had read three or four columns, the king cut it with a scribes knife and threw it into the fire that was in the brazier, until all the scroll was consumed in the fire that was in the brazier. Yet the king and all his servants who heard all these words were not afraid, nor did they rend their gar ments (36:23, 24). Gods reaction to the king and his servants was not too favor able. The Lord said that the king and his sons would die because he had burned the book which God commissioned Jeremiah to write. Even though the king burned the book, God told Jeremiah to write the same mes sage on another scroll, which he did by dictating the information to Baruch again. There are several reactions that we can have when we have the Bible read to us. We can be so excited about the message that we want other people to hear the same message. These people who hear the message can then want to pass it on to others also. We can read the book and fear can come upon us and thus motivate us to action. A negative reaction can be that we are not moved by the message and ultimately burn the book. However, there is one lesson that we really need to grasp, and that is, that regardless of our reaction to the message, the message has still been writ ten. Just by us destroying the message it will not make the message go away. It will not make it void. Jesus said, Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away (Matthew 24:35). We have different reactions to the Bible. Some are positive and some are negative. Some will lead to the saving of our souls and some to the destruction of our souls. Trying to destroy the Bible, either literally or figura tively, will not destroy the mes sage of God. Let us not be like the king and his servants in that we have no fear from reading the word of God. Let us be like those who wanted to pass the book on to other people. Let us have the desire to make arrangements for other people to read the book. Let us encourage people to react positively to the reading of the book. 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. BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeak carlton_mc@msn.com I n John chapter 10 Jesus presents Himself as The Good Shepherd, not a good shepherd but the Good Shepherd. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shep herd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep fol low him for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him for they do not know the voice of strangers. (vs.1-5) Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep (v.7). Then in verse 11 Jesus says I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. The good shepherd tends the sheep, meeting their every need. A look at the work of a good shepherd will help clarify the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. First of all, like a good shepherd, Jesus possesses personal skills. In verse 14 He says I know My sheep and My sheep know me. Is it not great to know that if you are saved today the Lord Jesus knows you by name? This cannot be said of any other founder of any religion. Second, Christ is very emotional toward His sheep. In verse 15 He says I lay down My life for the sheep. He loved us so much that He died in our place. Third, Christ clearly communicates to His sheep. In verse 16 They too will listen (hear) to My voice. It is a blessing to note that during our trying times, if we listen, we will hear the voice of the shepherd directing and comforting us. If a shepherd is to be a good shepherd, he must have vested interest in the sheep. Verses 12 and 13 tell us that the hireling who does not own the sheep will flee at the first sign of trouble; but the good shepherd will not flee. If you are a part of the Good Shepherds flock, the Good Shepherd bought you with a price. The price was His own blood on Calvarys cross. He has vested interest in you. Knowing that the Lord Jesus Christ is our Good Shepherd, we like sheep, should follow Him and ignore the voice of strangers. We must try every spirit to see what sort it is before we follow that spirit. We should follow the Good Shepherd by listening to His voice; knowing that most of His directions come from our read ing and studying His word. We should be ready to follow the Good Shepherd wherever He leads. But to do all this, we must first become a member of the Good Shepherds flock. Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through me John 14:6. If you have not made the decision to accept Jesus as your personal savior, please do so before it is eter nally too late.

L ast week we began the true story of ‘Lilly’. We have changed, and omitted names and places to protect the privacy of those involved. Lilly was 21 years old, deaf, locked up and abused, when she became so sick that she could no longer be hidden where her parents had kept her up to this time. The doctor was brought to the house, where he immediately recognized the abusive situation, and notified the authorities. Mercifully, she was taken from her parents and moved to a special home where she was loved and cared for. Her parents were tried and went to prison. Lilly, was sent to a facility for trainable mental-ly emotionally handicapped adults for assessment. She had no communication skills, and when tested, her I.Q. measured between 6 and 10, which is not train-able. They were about to give up on her, when a caring teacher intervened. “Let me teach her sign language… then re-assess her. What have we got to loose?!” Further he said, “I just want 6 months to try and teach her.” The challenges for the teacher and the student were many, as you can only imagine. There was much at stake for Lilly, who was crying out for help. ‘Lilly’s’ special classes began and from day one there was progress. ‘Lilly’ was like a sponge, soaking up infor-mation. It was like someone had flipped a switch. All he had to do was input the information and she seemed to be able to utilize it. She began by learning words and their hand signs, objects and their signs, the sign language alphabet, numbers, and on and on. She had started learning and was not going to stop. Daily learning activities were done, using the ‘reverse sequence’ tech-nique to teach ‘personal care’. When he taught her to tie shoe laces, he let her do the last thing, (pull the loops tight). Then he would do all but the next to last two steps plus pull the laces tight, and so on, till she could do it all. The teacher said, “You can teach almost anything by breaking it down into enough steps, and using the reverse sequence technique.” In six weeks she had learned over 300 word signs, plus hand signs for all the teachers and staff, and helpers, and all the stu-dents at the school, as well as how to write the words for the signs. Within three months her I.Q. was at 120, she was reading at a seventh grade level. After six months, tested for the last time, she was at 160!!! After 4 years, ‘Lilly’ had graduated from high school. Before she was 30 she had completed her Masters and Doctorate Degree. She had earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education and English, a Masters Degree in Special Education for the hearing impaired. How many children have been treated as though they were an ‘inconve-nience’, ‘in the way’? How many ‘Lillys’ have been crushed? The people were bringing babies and children to Jesus so He could touch them. His disciples rebuked the people for bringing children, they were ‘in the way’. Jesus rebuked them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these…”(Luke 18:15-17). B ecause you deserve it! This message is delivered to us regularly through countless adver-tisements and TV com-mercials...every product and service promising something you cannot or at least should not want to be without. I wonder how often we have been con-vinced to buy something that did not deliver what was promised...all because we believed we deserved it! According to Romans 16:17-18, the Bible says that people who are serv-ing their own appetites use “smooth talk and flattery to deceive the minds of nave people.” Proverbs 29:5 also warns “whoever flatters his neighbor is spreading a net for his feet.” This is a warning to be more guarded in the face of flat-tery than an honest repri-mand. Initially, it may not be as pleasant, but at least you will honestly know where you stand. William Penn, founder of the Pennsylvania colony, was once quoted: “Avoid flatterers, for they are thieves in disguise.” How about that-and he didn’t even have televi-sion! In relation to false advertisement, we can easily make the connec-tion between a flatterer and a thief…after all, we know those commercials are purposed to make a profit! In relationships, however, we might not always see the correlation as clearly... By definition, flattery is “excessive praise from motives of self-interest.” Thus it is the motives and not the praise that is the problem. In healthy relationships, our motives should always be for the good of the other person. Honest compliments are always welcome, but deceptive flattery truly is a net for our feet and a thief in disguise. Why is this so? 1) Since the motive for flattery is self-interest, it lays a trap to manipulate behavior from which the flatterer will benefit. If a simple request would be rejected, flattery becomes the tool that serves to deceive and control. 2) Flattery is dangerous to the recipient when it is received, (we might say “swallowed… hook, line and sinker”) and results with pride and conceit causing the per-son to act foolishly. It is worth mentioning that we are all susceptible to flattery because it is human nature to enjoy hearing good things about ourselves, especially the positive opinion of others. Interestingly, the original Hebrew word for flat-tery translates “smooth,” (hence the caution for a “smooth-talker”) and gives us warning when praise is too easy to swal-low. Wisdom and dis-cernment dictate that we learn to recognize when praise is being “laid on a little thick.” We must also consider the source. Ask yourself, “Would this same person tell me the truth if it were hard to hear?” If the answer is yes, enjoy the complement...oth-erwise, look down and beware of the net around your feet...

CHURCH CALENDAR Associated PressPHILADELPHIA — Prosecutors plan to appeal a judge’s decision to dismiss the most serious sexual assault charges against a Philadelphia priest after the accuser described the alleged 1997 encounter at a preliminary hearing Thursday. The Rev. Andrew McCormick, 56, remains on leave from the church, with a misdemeanor trial set for October. But Philadelphia prosecutors — who recently prosecuted a landmark case over the church’s handling of abuse complaints — vow to have the felony charges against McCormick restored. The accuser’s credibility was not at issue at the preliminary hearing, but the judge found the acts described did not meet the legal definition of sexual assault and deviant intercourse. The accuser, now 24, testified that he was invited to the rec-tory and led up to the priest’s bedroom after evening Mass. He said McCormick partly undressed each of them, fon-dled him, straddled him on the bed and forced his penis into the boy’s mouth. Defense lawyer William J. Brennan successfully argued there was no penetration alleged, as required for the felo-nies charged. Municipal Judge Karen Yvette Simmons agreed to dismiss them, while uphold-ing misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child, indecent assault and inde-cent exposure. The accuser gave a detailed description of the priest’s bed-room. On cross-examination, he said he had been an altar boy for about two years but could not name any other boys that served with him at St. John Cantius in northeast Philadelphia. Prosecutors say he came forward in about January, prompt-ed by news reports of the Penn State sexual assault case and the high-profile Philadelphia prosecution of Monsignor William Lynn, the former sec-retary for clergy at the arch-diocese. Lynn was convicted of child endangerment, while a former priest pleaded guilty to sexual assault before trial and the jury deadlocked on sexual assault charges against a third priest, another client of Brennan’s. Brennan called his timing “opportunistic.” “I have tremendous empathy for victims of sexual assault, clergy or otherwise,” he said. “But there’s a lot of people jump-ing on the gravy train, looking to sue the archdiocese and to sue priests.” McCormick is free on bail and due back in court Oct. 18. Most sex charges tossed against priest Assistant District Attorney James Carpenter and District Attor ney, Seth Williams answer questions at a news conference in Phil adelphia. Rev. Andrew McCormick has been charged with sexually assa ulting a 10year-old boy. ASSOCIATED PRESS LAKE CITY REPORTER RELIGION FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, AUGUST 17-18, 2012 7A

By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Free haircuts, back packs and medical physi cals are just a few of the back to school items that will be given away to local youths this weekend at during the 14th Annual Operation Backpack. The event, which is sponsored by Christ Central, will take place from 9 a.m. noon Saturday at the Columbia County Fairgrounds exhi bition hall. Parents must be present with children. Leilani Dagley, project director, said the event will have school supplies for pre-K through 12th grade students. Dagley said organizers plan to give away more than 400 Jansport backpacks. I buy directly from Jansport and those are $50$60 backpacks and they have a lifetime warranty, she said. If you get 30 years old and zipper breaks, they will replace it. She said she will have cards with the return infor mation. This year there will be two lines, Line 1 will be for students to get a backpack and Line 2 will be for the remainder of the students who received backpacks last year to get the other free school supplies. Dagley said the event has increased in its popular ity over the years because it helps local students and their families. Pastors Lonnie Johns and Tammie Johns, Christ Central lead pastors, came up with the idea 14 years ago and they just wanted to make sure all the chil dren in our community got to have the opportunity to get their free supplies for school and a good back pack, Dagley said. Christ Central and its sponsors feel we should make the supplies available for all the children in our community to start back the first day of school. In addition, the event will feature free school supplies, finger printing by the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, free hair cuts, free physicals, free vision exams, as well as free health department immunizations and bal loons. Sandy Tice, Chances For Children executive director, will be at the event and is scheduled to give out 2,000 free drinks. A recruiter from the US. Army, Alex Abbate, will also be on hand giving out free supplies, Dagley said. Don Winkleman, TD Bank vice president/ store manager, will also be on site with a whole table of school supplies, including hand sanitizer, tissue and ink pens. By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com National statistics indicate impaired driving has become a fatal trend during the Labor Day holiday period. According to data from national reports, in 2010 more than 10,000 people died in crashes in which a driver or motorcycle rider was impaired. Lake City Police Department officials have vowed to target impaired drivers in the days lead ing up to the Labor Day Holiday weekend period as part of a national law enforcement cam paign aimed at curbing impaired driving. Local officers will take part in the Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign, which starts todayFriday, Aug. 17 and will con clude Sept. 3. We want to remind everyone that it is illegal to drive impaired, said Argatha Gilmore, Lake City Police Department chief in a pre pared statement. We hope this campaign will reinforce to every one that if they plan on drinking, to never get behind the wheel. Although if someone does choose to drive impaired, we will arrest them. No warnings. No excuses. Officials said LCPD officers will be aggressively looking for impaired driving during the crack down and will arrest anyone caught driving impaired. Its important for us to try and keep our community safe, said Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department public information offi cer, about the departments par ticipation in the campaign. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign is a nationwide campaign where law enforcement around the nation is trying to crackdown on impaired driving. Statistics show that among 18 to 34-year-old drivers killed in traffic crashes during the 2010 Labor Day weekend, 50 percent were alcohol-impaired. Driving with a blood alco hol concentration of .08 is ille gal throughout the country, but despite the laws, 147 people were killed in traffic crashes involving drivers or motorcycle riders with BACs of .08 or higher. Statistics indicate 80 percent of the fatal crashes occurred from 6 p.m. 5:59 a.m. The .08 BAC is whats consid ered legally impaired in Florida. Thats not a lot when it comes to alcohol its not much more than a glass of alcohol, Shaw said. The bottom line is, if youre going to drink its simply not worth the risk. Dont take the chance, let somebody else drive. Shaw said additional officers, working as a traffic detail, will be on duty to patrol the local road ways during the campaign. He said there is no statistical data that indicates there is a signif icant problem with local motorists driving impaired during the Labor Day holiday period, but the cam paign is nationwide and has an emphasis on reducing fatal crash es during the holiday period. We definitely want to do every thing that we can because we know Labor Day is one of the worse times in the nation where people try to drink and drive. Thats why were trying to step up our efforts to try and curtail the problem, Shaw said. charter. Charter commission chairman Koby Adams said educational documents advertised would be infor mational only. Commissioner Jody DuPree made a motion for a reasonable form of relief in the 2012 tax bill for residents whose homes were affected by flooding. I believe that it is only fair that residents who have lost the use and enjoyment of their homes receive some form of credit or exemption on future tax bills, DuPree said. The motion was approved unanimously. DuPree motioned to file a formal complaint against Callaway resident and Suwannee River Water Management District employee Leroy Marshall for providing misinforma tion to county residents. The information has been so widely dissemi nated that it has interfered with recovery efforts and continues to interfere, DuPree said. The motion was approved by the commission. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 17-18, 2012 8A FREE TO THE PUBLIC: Informational Lecture on the eye condition: Glaucoma Thursday, August 23 5:30 pm [after hours] 1615 SW Main Blvd Lake City, Florida 32025 386-755-2785 Dr. Eric Boone is pleased to be Presenter at this months Public Service Eye Care Lecture, and to answer questions on this Lecture Topic as well, because he is passionate about maintaining healthy vision and quality eye care, and because the doctors place great emphasis on patient education concern ing vision.

Were very excited to have them here. According to a news release from Swamp Peoples producers, R.J. Molinere and Jay Paul Molinere are the newest father-and-son team to join the History Channels hit reality show. Hailing from Houma, La., the Molinere men bring a calmness to alligator hunting that is not exactly typical on the show. In fact, they exude calm ness and confidence even in the messiest, swampiest situations. R.J. and Jay Paul seem to be able to read each others minds. R.J., the father, had a claim to fame before TV cameras started filming him pulling huge alligators out of the Louisiana swamp with his bare hands. Moli nere has been doing other impressive things with his bare hands for years. He is a four-time U.S. arm wrestling champion. Even though it sounds like some thing someone would make up in order to pick up a girl in a bar, it turns out to be true that R.J. earned two of those national champi onships with his right arm and the other two with his left. Father and son Molinere are members of the Houma Nation, an Na tive American tribe from Southern Louisiana with alligator hunting at the center of its culture. While the other hunters in the show count their swamp legacy in generations or centuries, R.J. and Jay Paul talk about thousands of years of alligator hunt ing in their family. During the10 or 11 months that he cant hunt alligators, he hunts and fishes other game on his familys 500 acres near Grand Blois, La., and does some shrimping. Besides making his living off the land, he serves as an elder in the Houma Nation and continues to train for arm wrestling competitions. With the purchase of a general admission ticket of $8 which includes Saturday and Sunday Expo admis sion, R.J. and Jay Paul will have meet and greets for a short time beginning at 12:30 p.m., on Saturday only. to see and bid on items at the jam or they can bid online at suwanneevalley floodjam. com, Briscoe said. Auction items include a Dale Earnhardt auto graphed hat, a 1930 Martin Guitar and a Tim Tebow autographed book. Online bidding is already open and will close 9 p.m. Saturday, he said. Florida Gateway College will broadcast the festivities starting Saturday at noon on Comcast channel 8. The Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and the Suwannee County Chamber of Commerce will host a Business Expo during the jam with local rebuilding resources for flood victims. FEMA mitigation special ists, who can explain disas ter-resistant ways to repair and rebuild, will be avail able to answer questions during the jam on Friday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mitigation specialists can offer suggestions on clean ing mold and mildew. They also provide information on flood insurance.

Trickett passed for 675 yards and seven touchdowns last sea-son in relief of Manuel. “Clint did some real good things, drove us early, made some plays,” Fisher said. “I really liked the way the offense came out early. Did some good things on third down. That part of it was really good.” The 6-foot-2 Trickett, who has suffered from a chronic intestinal disease, added about 15 pounds during the offseason and now weighs 180. A fifth-year senior, Manuel has battled injuries throughout his career at Florida State, although he came into camp this month in what he said was the best shape of his life. He missed the Clemson game and a half of the Wake Forest game last fall after being knocked out of the Oklahoma game in the third quarter. The Seminoles, who finished the year 9-4, lost all three. Florida State opens its season with four straight home games, beginning Sept. 1 against Murray (Ky.) State. After a visit from another lower-divi-sion school, Savannah State, the Seminoles host Wake Forest, Sept. 15 and Clemson, Sept. 22. Fisher said senior offensive lineman Jacob Fahrenkrug also suffered an ankle injury that will keep out of practice for several days. MANUEL: Hurt, Trickett gets snaps Continued From Page 1B

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 17-18, 2012 3B%6SRUWVSo what’s up with all these perfect games?By HOWIE RUMBERGAssociated PressTwenty-seven up, 27 down. Again. Seattle’s Felix Hernandez threw Major League Baseball’s third per-fect game of the season Wednesday — a record — joining San Francisco’s Matt Cain and the White Sox’s Philip Humber, who also tossed his gem at Safeco Field. That means six of the 23 perfectos in baseball his-tory have come since 2009. Little wonder this is being called the Decade of the Pitcher. Still not impressed? It gets better. Hernandez’s gem was the sixth no-hitter this season. One more and major league pitchers will have tied the seven set in 1990 and matched a season later. There’s only been one year with eight no-hitters. Want to guess? Here’s a hint: Chester Arthur was president. That season was 1884. Let’s look at six reasons why pitchers have become so dominant:Talent on the moundHeadlines these days are more likely going to be made by a Jered Weaver or Johan Santana than a slug-ger, and rightly so. Pitchers are getting the best of the matchups again. Starting with 1995, the heart of the Steroids Era, the best three years for earned-run aver-age are 2010-2012 — it’s 4.21 this year, third best, according to STATS LLC. Led by hard-throwing Justin Verlander and knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, hurlers have a strikeouts/9 innings ratio over seven (7.09) for the first time since ‘95, STATS says. Player developmetPitch limits. Cut fastballs. Better training techniques. The trend over the past decade has been to spend on building farm systems and developing pitchers from the draft — and then protecting those assets. The Mariners have rejected all offers for the 26-year-old Hernandez, when their team has needs in all areas. The Washington Nationals are first in the NL East with a rotation topped by homegrown stars Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann. The Giants shelled out big money to retain Cain in early April. Raise your own star rather than pay big bucks for a free agent and a team earns some cost certainty, too. It takes six years of major league service to reach free-agent status. That’s why Tampa Bay locked up Matt Moore at a bargain price for at least five years and as many as eight after just three regular-season outings and two playoff appearances. FieldingThe newest of the new baseball metrics focus on the leather. Thanks to com-prehensive video recording systems at the ballparks, computers are churning out complex spray charts and helping track batter tendencies with precision. Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik is a big proponent of runs saved by defense and maybe that helps explain why two of the Mariners’ three no-hitters in club history have come this season. Hitting Home runs are down. Runs are down. The fact is hitters often look over-matched these days. Opponents’ batting average has not been this low since 1995, according to STATS. Pitchers are holding batters to a .260 average this year. In 2010 and ‘11 it was .261. Luck No, we’re not talking about players taking a seat far away from a pitcher with a no-no in progress. That’s superstition. We mean the call that goes a pitcher’s way — i.e. Carlos Beltran’s ball ruled foul but TV replays showed it clearly landed on the left field line in Santana’s no-hitter. Or that impossible-seeming play: Cain got two. Mike Baxter made a bone-jarring catch to preserve Santana’s no-hitter in June, slamming into the wall during a play that landed him on the dis-abled list. Everyone can use a little luck now and then. DrugsThe suspension of Melky Cabrera on Wednesday shows the system is work-ing. The gaudy numbers of the Steroids Era are gone, and while hitters weren’t the only ones cheating, pitchers appear to be get-ting more benefit from a return to a level playing field. With big boppers not nearly as readily available these days, emphasis has shifted away from the long ball — except in New York — and pitchers have reas-serted themselves at the top of the game. ASSOCIATED PRESSSeattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez has water poure d on him by teammate Miguel Olivo after Hernandez pitche d a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday in Seattle. Jets heading home after summer of TebowmaniaBy DENNIS WASZAK Jr.Associated PressCORTLAND, N.Y. — Tebowmania is heading home, along with those tus-sling teammates and top-secret wildcat practices. The New York Jets wrapped up a busy training camp at SUNY Cortland on Thursday after three weeks filled with headlines and all eyes on Tim Tebow — all the time. In between all that, the Jets managed to get plenty of work done, and they feel pretty good about where they’re at just a few weeks before the reg-ular season. “I think it was the best camp I’ve been a part of,” quarterback Mark Sanchez said. That’s saying a lot, especially since many wondered how the Jets, and Sanchez in particular, would handle the heightened attention on the team with Tebow in town. The fact that ESPN camped out for a week and showed live look-ins at practice just added to what was hardly the quiet, little getaway that coach Rex Ryan enjoys about being in central New York. “I think we grew a lot as a team, on and off the field,” Sanchez said. Perhaps that was no more evident than with Sanchez himself. He deftly handled constant ques-tions about his job secu-rity and the presence of the NFL’s most popular backup quarterback. Sanchez also showed increased poise in the huddle, something that had linebacker Bart Scott thinking his quarterback could be in the top 10 at his position this season. “Sure, you have to think that,” Sanchez said when he was asked if he agreed. “You have to play like that and as soon as you get on the field, you have to be the baddest guy out there. The toughest, the best, the most accurate and you have to want to win. I think we have a lot of guys like that, so that’s good for us.” Last season was marked by locker room turmoil and the perception that Sanchez was not a leader on the team. His actions during the last three weeks appear to have changed all that. “One of the things I felt more comfortable doing, especially with the young wideout group was getting on those guys and letting them know that when you come in the huddle, and I’m not being selfish here, that this is my huddle,” he said. “Don’t talk, get in your position quickly and get lined up because there are a lot of things I need to go through to put us in the right position to be successful and Coach is expecting me to do that.” That approach hasn’t been easy for Sanchez, whom cornerback Darrelle Revis suggested is the big-gest factor in the team’s success this season. “It’s not necessarily in my genetic makeup to start yelling at guys, but there’s a time and a place to give somebody a hug, to jump up and give him a chest bump and high-five and there are other times where you have to get on guys,” Sanchez said. “You have to find the right way to reach different people. I think I’m navigating that a lot better now.” There was plenty of other stuff the Jets had to work their way around during training camp, including Tebow setting the internet abuzz early in camp when he tore off his shirt after practice and ran barechested off the field in the rain. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie rubbed team-mates the wrong way when he suggested he might be the No. 2 wide receiver on the Jets. Funny thing is, with so many injuries to the position, he might just be after taking some snaps in team drills — and even catching a touchdown pass. A wrestling match broke out on the sideline during one early practice, when about 20 players piled up after a fight between Joe McKnight and D’Anton Lynn. The next day, after a few more skirmishes, Ryan made his team run laps as punishment. And there were also the clandestine wildcat practices, the tricky offen-sive scheme that Tebow is expected to be a large part of this season. Media members were allowed to watch the sessions — one Monday and another Thursday. ASSOCIATED PRESSMark Sanchez (left) and Tim Tebow set to throw during dr ills at New York Jets training camp in Cortland, N.Y., on Tuesday. Former Gator Demps close to signing with NFL teamBy DENNIS WASZAK Jr.Associated PressJeff Demps has an Olympic silver medal. The U.S. track star now wants to make a run at a Super Bowl ring. Agent Daniel Rose told The Associated Press late Wednesday night that sev-eral NFL teams are inter-ested in signing the speedy Demps, a former running back at the University of Florida. Rose said Demps is expected to make a decision by late Thursday night. “I’m excited because it’s a good story,” Rose said. “The guy goes to the Olympics to pursue one of his dreams and he succeeded. Now, he wants to go win a Super Bowl. How can you fault a kid like that?” Rose wouldn’t identify the teams in the mix, but Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano confirmed that the Buccaneers are inter-ested in Demps, who was part of the 400-meter relay team that finished second to Jamaica in London. The New York Jets, with Demps’ former college teammate Tim Tebow, also are among the seven or eight teams on the list. Demps went undrafted in April after announcing in January that was giving up his football career to focus on track and the Olympics. The 22-year-old Demps, who had 2,470 career yards rushing and 23 touchdowns in four seasons with the Gators, did not attend any college football all-star games or take part in any NFL draft workouts to focus on track. But now, Demps is ready to resume his football career as a professional. “I think within 24 hours, we’re going to get it done,” Rose said. “Obviously, he wants to get to work. He had some commitments he had to finish up (Wednesday) with the Olympics, and we’ve been very honest and open with the teams. Now, that’s all over with and he can go to sleep and wake up Thursday morning and focus on football.” Demps makes for an intriguing player who could serve as a change-of-pace back, as well as a top-notch special teamer. At Florida, he averaged 28.8 yards a return during his four-year career. He also won multi-ple national championships in track and field. “He’s speed,” Rose said. “The NFL is about speed and there’s so much you can do with a guy like that if used correctly. He could be a kick returner, slot receiv-er, stuff like that. There’s gadget plays teams can come up with. If used cor-rectly, he could definitely be a weapon.” With NFL teams a few weeks into training camp and their second preseason games coming up this weekend, Demps might be a bit behind at this stage. “He’s definitely in shape,” he said. “That’s a given.”

Ambrose,who has proven to be a strong road racer, needs to win at least one of the four remaining rac es in the 26-race regular season to have a good shot at a Chase berth,but he’s typically not as fast on ovals.But t his weekend’s race at Michigan International Speedway could be just what he needs to bolster his position in the s tandings. “We got the pole at Michigan [in June],”he said.“We were running top five all day there.There’s no reas on why we can’t go there and surprise them again.” Had Busch been able to hold on over the final lap a nd win at the Glen,he’d have put himself in a strong w ild card position with two victories.Instead,he’s still in a tight battle.He left the track without commenting to repo rters, but his crew chief Dave Rogers did address the situ ation. “You can get in the Chase without winning [a second race],”Rogers said.“But it certainly would be nice to have that win … “I think if we keep performing the way we’re perfor ming,we’ll get this turned around and get another wi n.” The Watkins Glen victory also was timely for Ambros e and his Richard Petty Motorsports team,which is fac ing some uncertainty about its manufacturer support for next year. Team co-owner Richard Petty addressed the manufacturer issue during the winner’s press conference at the Glen,saying the addition of Penske Racing to the Fo rd camp hasn’t been the best of news for his two-car t eam. “We’ve got to finish up this year with Ford,”he sai d. “We’ve got a contract with them.When the Penske dea l came about,then we were kind of shuffled around a l ittle bit with Ford.I don’t think we’re shuffled out,but we’re kind of shuffled around. “So we’re just going to have to renegotiate our con tract with Ford.” Ten years ago on the NASCAR circuit,rarely a day or a press conference wentby without a discussion of safety. Those times were as troubling for NASCAR as they come.There had been three on-trackdeaths the year before – Adam Petty andKenny Irwin Jr.,eight weeks apart,both inTurn Three at New Hampshire,then TonyRoper at Texas. Then in the season-opening Daytona 500 in 2001,the sport’s most popular driver,DaleEarnhardt,died on the last lap of the race.Just when it looked like the sport might beable to put its tragedies behind for a bit,Blaise Alexander was killed in a crash duringan ARCA race at Charlotte. NASCAR itself,as well as its drivers and teams,began to react in 2000,looking to makethe cars and tracks safer,but the initiativereally ramped up after Earnhardt’s death. Ten years later there have been no deaths on the track,and even serious injuries havebecome rare,thanks to innovations likeSAFER barriers,commonly known as softwalls,HANS head-and-neck restraints andthe safety features incorporated into the Carof Tomorrow.Safety issues are rarely dis-cussed in press conferences,and drivers seemmore at ease these days. Jeff Burton,who stepped up as a garage leader especially on matters of safety duringthe days after Earnhardt’s death,said themindset in NASCAR is somewhat differenttoday.But he said that drivers,by theirnature,tend to think more about how to maketheir cars faster than they do about whatmight happen to them in a crash. “I think it’s important to know that I don’t really know that we really ever felt unsafe,”Burton said.“I think people don’t understandthat we’ve had huge safety improvements,butin many cases we didn’t really know that weweren’t doing as well as we were doing it.” Some have said that periods of aggressive racing and the “Boys,have at it”stance byNASCAR come about because of the safetychanges made since the deaths of 2000 and2001,the thinking being that drivers makerisky moves because they don’t believe they’llget hurt in doing so. Burton said that’s just not so.“I find that kind of ridiculous,to be quite honest,”he said.“I don’t believe people drivein race cars worried about getting hurt.” That school of thought was evident in Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s comments last week atWatkins Glen. “The cars are safe,and we are not in physical danger of injury,”he said.“That kind ofstuff may loom large in stick and ball sports,but in our sport,really the only thing you’vegot to worry about is burning yourself outmentally.If you just prepare yourself for that,you can handle that. “It’s a little bit different since we are driving race cars,and we’ve got all the safetyequipment that we have to keep us in onepiece.” Burton said that drivers try to maintain an attitude like Earnhardt Jr.’s. “Race car drivers have a way of sliding that stuff in the back of their head,”he said.“Ireally can’t say that I have a different comfortlevel.I do know I have a comfort level thateverybody is way more proactive than weused to be.And I knew we weren’t proactiveprior to [Earnhardt’s death].” Burton also pointed out that while there have been great strides on the safety front,there are still many places on race trackswhere drivers could get hurt. “We still have concrete walls,”he said.“We still have a lot of places on the race track thatdon’t have SAFER barriers.We’ve seen driv-ers hit in openings in walls and stuff like thateven after all of these things we’ve learned. “That gets a little frustrating from time to time.You shouldn’t have to re-learn things.You learn it,you ought to apply it.And some-times we’ve haven’t done as good a job aswe’ve needed to do in those areas.” Burton said that even though there haven’t been any fatal accidents,tracks still need toaddress their safety issues.Watkins Glen madesome changes since last year’s race there. “I think the main initiative now is to continue looking at our race tracks and continue tomake improvements by having SAFER barri-ers,by having the openings in the wall con-structed better,”he said.“There are still someinfield walls that drivers can get into and getinto an awful position by hitting the wrongway. “We’ve got to go and fix all those problems that could be out there.You can’t halfway doanything.When the race tracks made thehuge investments they made to put the softerwalls in,that was awesome.That was great.Now they’ve got to go make the other invest-ment to put it everywhere. “You think about Daytona,for example. More wrecks happen on the straights thanthey do in the corners.We need softer wallseverywhere.We need to look at openings andthe grass.Grass at race tracks is ridiculous.They should never have grass on race tracks. “All those things need to be looked at and taken care of.” He said the same is true of the cars.“The way to do that is to keep looking and not be afraid to look and not to be afraid ofwhat the answer is going to be,”he said.“AndNASCAR has done a great job of that.Theywent from very reactionary to very proactive.They’ve stepped it up.” NOTEBOOK Ambrose: ‘They made right call’While some drivers were upset that NASCAR didn’t throw the yellow flag for oil onthe track on the last lap at Watkins Glen,win-ner Marcos Ambrose said leaving the green flagout was the lesser of evils. “No one wants to see these races finish under caution or bunch back up in these two-by-twos and making a random finish,”he said.“We had the three fastest cars duking it out forthe win and that’s the way it should be. “I think they made the right call.”Earnhardt won’t pick favoritesThe Sprint Cup Series is headed back to Michigan International Speedway,where DaleEarnhardt Jr.is the most recent Cup winner.It’salso the track where he got his second mostrecent win,back in 2008,but he said during hismedia appearance at Watkins Glen that hewouldn’t go so far as to say the Michigan track isone of his favorites. “I don’t have a favorite anymore because I have figured out that if I had favorites,I hadones I didn’t like,and when I would go to thoseones I didn’t like,I didn’t run good because Iwould go in with a bad attitude about it.I would-n’t get a good result,”he said.“I would go toDarlington being miserable about being there,and run miserable and have a miserable experi-ence. “Everybody around me was affected by … that emotion.” He said there was a time when he felt that was about the latter portion of the schedule. “The first couple of years in the Cup series,I would get to about eight weeks left in the yearand wish it was over because it just felt like itwas so long,”he said.“I felt like I was just burnedout.I was just arguing and struggling,andpulling and pushing and shoving within myteam.Or,with other drivers,or what have you.Or,just the sport.Just not agreeing.Just kind ofstruggling;frustrated,even when things weregoing good.” If Earnhardt were to reveal a list of his least favorite tracks,Watkins Glen likely would makethe list.He spun late on Sunday,finished 28thand dropped three spots to fourth in the stand-ings,17 points behind new leader JimmieJohnson,who finished third at the Glen. “I just got in the corner and made a mistake, and that was pretty much all there was to it,”Earnhardt said.“I was just overdriving the car.” By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick NASCAR racingachieves greatstrides in safetyin last ten yearsJoey Logano,driver of the No.20 Toyota,and Bobby La bonte,driver of the No.47 Toyota,are involved in an incident during the July 29 Curtiss Shaver 400 at the Brickyard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.(NASCAR photo) NEXTUP...

(N) Ponder believes Vikings can ‘win now’By DAVE CAMPBELLAssociated PressMINNEAPOLIS — Christian Ponder’s success as an NFL quarterback is years away from being determined. He’s not interested in waiting for the Minnesota Vikings to improve, though. “We want to win now. We’re putting that pressure on ourselves that we want to do a lot better than 3-13. We want to make the play-offs. We want to be com-petitive in the NFC North,” Ponder said. The Vikings (29th in the preseason AP Pro32) are 9-24 since they advanced to the NFC championship game behind Brett Favre 2 12 years ago. Even if running back Adrian Peterson is back to normal from the start following his rehabili-tation from reconstructive surgery on his left knee, there are too many rookies and recent late-round draft picks in the starting lineup for the Vikings to be seri-ously considered around the league as contenders. But one of the beauties of the NFL, of course, is the thin margin between bad teams and good ones. With 16 games and the constant competitive balance provid-ed by the salary cap, there’s almost always one club that turns a double-digit-defeat season into a playoff spot the next year. “In our minds, we have a good team,” Ponder said. “Obviously, we’ve still got a lot of things to get better at in these next two weeks. Obviously, we know it’s tough. We know it’s a tough division. You look at last year: We were in so many games. We could have eas-ily been 10-6, and we ended 3-13. So that’s a good sign. We were close last year, and we’re only going to be better this year.” The question is how much better the Vikings can be with Ponder, whose first 10 NFL starts could be best described as erratic. His confidence has been apparent on the field and that’s one of the most important steps. He’s had some practice performanc-es during training camp that were rookie-like, but overall he’s been more accurate in the pocket and made bet-ter choices about where to throw the ball. In the preseason opener at San Francisco, he was 4 for 9 for 80 yards. But three of those passes were in and out of his receiver’s hands, and the other two incompletions were throwaways. That’s another encouraging sign for the Vikings, that his competi-tive zeal isn’t overwhelming his common sense. “That’s the way winning football teams play,” offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said. “They may have poor plays, but they are not so poor that the team has a tough time overcoming them to get the outcome that we want. We can overcome a lot of things, but when we turn the ball over or go back-ward with sacks and penal-ties, those are more difficult to overcome.” ASSOCIATED PRESSMinnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder (7) rol ls out against the San Francisco 49ers in San Francisco on Friday.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 17-18, 2012 DEAR ABBY: I’m a male who has graduated from high school and is about to start college in another state. I’m ready for a new challenge. The only thing holding me back is a romantic attrac-tion I have toward one of my high school teachers. He and I are best friends, but I love him more than as a friend. I have bought him many meals and gifts since he taught me, and I have found every opportunity available to be with him. I’m not sure if he’s aware of my feelings, although I wonder whether I uncon-sciously make myself obvious. Regardless, we have a great relationship. It kills me inside to know I can never be with him. I have never told anyone how I feel, and I know if I ever told him, it would destroy every-thing we have. I can’t forget about him. He’s on my mind constantly. Having to leave him soon is killing me. Do you have any advice for me? -DREADING IT IN LOUISIANA DEAR DREADING IT: Yes. Go away to college and open yourself to new experiences and relationships. Correspond with this special person, and when you return for school breaks, continue the friendship. Your feel-ings may or may not be reciprocated, but it is important that you let some time -years -elapse before trying to pursue anything closer with him. If you don’t wait, it could be damag-ing to his career. DEAR ABBY: Last Saturday, two days before my 75th birthday, I did something very unchar-acteristic of me. I went to a tattoo parlor 25 miles away and had a flower put on my right buttock. I don’t intend to tell any-one. It was my birthday present to myself. This was not a spurof-the-moment impulse. I have told my husband many times that if I made it to 75, I might celebrate it with a tattoo. He just laughed it off. No one in our family has one, and in the past, I have been criti-cal of them. But this one does not show. Now I have to find a way to tell my husband. He has an explosive temper that goes on and on, and he never drops an issue -ever. I need advice, and soon. Help me, will you? -SITTING ON A SECRET DEAR SITTING ON A SECRET: How do you know you are the first in your family to get a tat-too? If someone else also got one in a place that doesn’t show, would they have told you after you told everyone you didn’t like tattoos? You can’t hide this from your husband for-ever, so don’t try. If he reacts badly, remind him that the buttock with the flower belongs to YOU and that at 75, you’re a big girl who didn’t need anyone else’s consent. Now it’s time to give yourself another birthday present: Refuse to listen to your husban’s verbal abuse, and you’ll be much happier. DEAR ABBY: What are you supposed to do when you are sitting in a salon having your hair cut and styled, and the next appointment shows up early and engages your stylist in nonstop conver-sation? My wife says this happens often in beauty parlors and I should suck it up. I wanted the stylist’s full attention so I could get a good haircut. She’s not cheap. Am I right? What would you do? -PERPLEXED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR PERPLEXED: For the stylist to carry on an ongoing conversation with the next customer was unprofessional. If it happened to me, I would take my stylist aside and explain my feelings. For the next customer to monopolize the stylist’s attention was rude. The person should have been asked to sit somewhere and make himor herself comfortable until you were finished. DEAR ABBY: One night I woke up to my cat scratching at my bedroom door to be let in. When I got up and opened the door, I heard my parents making love. They were so loud it grossed me out, because my little sister is 10 and we share a room right next to theirs. She still doesn’t know about this kind of stuff. I want to tell them they don’t need to be doing that, because what if she got scared and woke up and tried to go in there? What should I do -tell them to go to a motel? -GROSSED OUT IN MADISON, MISS. DEAR GROSSED OUT: Do NOT tell your parents to go to a motel. If the cat hadn’t wak-ened you and you hadn’t opened your bedroom door, you wouldn’t have heard a thing. Be glad that you have parents who love each other and that you didn’t overhear them fighting. If your sister ever wakes up and gets scared, she should know she can wake you up. P.S. At age 10, your sister shouldn’t be com-pletely in the dark about the facts of life. And the person who should be talking to her about them is her mother. DEAR ABBY: I have an aunt (by marriage) who I think may be suf-fering from mental issues. All of a sudden, she is calling members of our family and telling them that “so-and-so” (it var-ies) is talking about them behind their backs. Of course, none of it is true, but it has caused a huge rift in our family. Family members have had big arguments over these calls. The aunt is in her mid50s and has always been quiet and sweet to every-one, so of course when someone gets a call, the person tends to believe her. This is tearing our family to pieces, and no one knows for sure if she’s having problems or if she is telling the truth. HELP! My cousins are no longer speaking to one another or me. I’m not close to her, but I have fallen prey to her phone calls to others. What should I do? -SLANDERED IN INDIANA DEAR SLANDERED: A sudden change in per-sonality can indeed be a sign of mental illness or a physical problem. Those family members who ARE still speaking to one another should approach the uncle to whom the woman is married and express the family’s con-cerns. She may need a physical and neurological evaluation. (And the cous-ins need to mend fences.) How sad. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY Happy Birthday: Secure your future. Put your per-sonal paperwork in order, and look for ways to invest wisely to ensure that you will not jeopardize what you have worked so hard to acquire. Relationships are changing and must be allowed to go in what-ever direction feels most natural. There is no room for manipulation this year. Stick to basics. Your num-bers are 9, 13, 22, 26, 31, 35, 49. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get out and mingle with interesting people. Reassess your current position. Instigate a move that will improve you life and your future. Don’t let a jealous friend or lover hold you back. Learn from someone older and more experienced. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Sincerity will help you get what you want. Remain calm if someone argues, and you will avoid a scene. Do what you say and you won’t need to make up excuses. Love is highlight-ed, and affectionate ges-tures will exceed anything you can say. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Participate in family and work activities that will bring you closer to the people you deal with daily. Building a solid base will pay off in terms of what you receive. Stabilization and growth is apparent if you combine work and pleasure. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put force behind your actions when dealing with personal or professional partners, or you can expect to take a backseat. A creative or fresh look at an existing problem will lead to a solu-tion, making you look like a hero. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Stay mellow and be obser-vant. Stepping back will allow you to see the big picture and come up with the most efficient way to fix a problem. A change is required and will make your life better. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t rely on others to step up and fix what’s not working for you. Avoid making a scene or getting involved in a discussion that will magnify a small issue into something unmanageable. Make love, not war, and you will show your superiority. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 22): Keep your eyes wide open. You will learn through your experiences. Expanding your interests will bring about opportuni-ties and the assistance you need to fulfill your dreams. Change is inevitable and should be welcomed. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Ease into any situation you come up against. You are better off playing it safe. Reservations will be warranted. Let your intu-ition guide you, especially when professional deci-sions are imminent. Love is highlighted and will ease your stress. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel, adven-ture and learning should all be wrapped up into one. A change of scenery or sharing with people from different backgrounds or mindsets will help you make wise choices that will enable you to achieve your per-sonal goals. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Avoid taking on responsibilities that don’t belong to you. Make sug-gestions, but let others do the legwork. Put energy and time into your own goals and ideas. A personal partnership will help you get back to basics and enjoy life. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Make a decision regarding your home, family and commitment to actions that will help improve your life. Larger quarters or altering your current living situation will be beneficial. Consider starting or expanding a home-based business. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t wait until it’s too late to make a move. Assess your situation, protect your position and expand your inter-ests. Embrace change, if that’s what’s required to get what you want. Compromise now can lead to gains later. +++ Birthday Baby: You are outgoing, humorous and popular. You are aggres-sive and progressive.
