Isaac strengthens, slows in Caribbean By DANICA COTO Associated Press SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Tropical Storm Isaac churned toward the Dominican Republic and Haiti early Friday, threaten ing to strengthen into a hur ricane that could take a shot at Florida and the Gulf Coast just as the Republicans gather for their national convention. The storm dumped heavy rain across eastern and south ern Puerto Rico and whipped up waves as high as 10 feet (3 meters) in the Caribbean as it moved through the region. U.S. forecasters said Isaac could become a Category 1 hur ricane today as it approaches the island of Hispaniola, which is shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It was expect ed to weaken a little while cross City prepares for Isaac By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org City public works is cleaning out ditches, clearing pipes and focusing on storm drainage to prepare for rain and winds from Tropical Storm Isaac. Even though we started yesterday, theres just so much to get done around here and so much water on the ground, said Joey Raulerson, assistant director of city public works. Raulerson said public works is doing everything they can to prepare for potential storm damage. We got every crew we got working on storm drainage, he said. Raulerson said city ditches are full of water. He said the public works crew is just try ing to get the water moving, though options are limited with bloated retention ponds and heavily saturated soil. Where are you going to pump to? Raulerson said. Everything is full. The city is having inmates fill sandbags, Raulerson said. They have accumulated 6,000 bags so far. Raulerson said they have already handed out between 200 and 300 sandbags to city residents. People are already getting prepared, he said. With the FEMA report on Debby just completed, Raulerson said city public works is doing everything they can to get ready. Ballot errors blamed on glitch By TONY BRITT email@example.com After certifying primary results earlier in the week, Columbia County Supervisor of Elections office staff and employees are in the midst of preparing for the November general election. Liz P. Horne, Columbia County Supervisor of Elections, said election results from last weeks primary were certified and sent to Florida Division of Elections officials Tuesday. The results are certified because we have taken care of everything that was included in the voting all the numbers of voters, absentee, early, provisional... , Horne said. Anything that we had was calculat ed, checked and sent to Tallahassee. The Canvassing Board signed-off on it and sent it to Tallahassee. During the early voting period of the primary election, an issue arose when elections officials found more than 100 instances where voter addresses did not match with the persons actual voting district. We had an error in our database and it affected 140 people, Horne said. During the time we were try ing to correct it, 21 (affected) people cast a ballot. We corrected it within 24 hours. The other 119 voters got the correct ballot. Horne said she doesnt expect the addressing/ballot issue to return during the November general elec tion.

Lee County Sheriffs officials said Thursday the cause of death has not been determined and an investigation continues. Patterson was reported missing in July 2011 after she didnt show up for the first day of school. Investigators found Pattersons body Wednesday, a day after receiving information from her 45-year-old ex-hus-band, who was on trial in Huntsville, Ala., on felony theft charges. Lee County deputies were in Alabama to testify in the case. Proctor was sentenced to life in prison on those charges. Proctor was arrested last year on the Alabama theft charges after he fled to Florida when investiga-tors questioned him about Pattersons disappearance.FBI probing primary funding MIAMI The FBI is investigating the unsuc-cessful Florida congres-sional primary campaign of an unknown Democratic candidate who may have improperly received thou-sands of dollars for mail services from Republican U.S. Rep. David Rivera. A senior law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the probe is ongo-ing, confirmed Thursday to The Associated Press that investigators are look-ing into direct-mail and voter data services used by Justin Lamar Sternads campaign prior to the Aug. 14 primary. The investigation was first reported by The Miami Herald. The FBI declined to confirm or deny the probe. At least one of Sternads mailings was critical of the eventual Democratic nomi-nee, Joe Garcia, who has previously tried to unseat Rivera. Sternad claims he loaned money to his campaign for the mailings. Rivera denies connection.Health officials investigate hospital MIAMI An investigation of abuse allegations at a Florida hospital that treats brain injuries has revealed the hospital is treating resi-dents without brain injuries. State health officials sent a letter Thursday to The Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation in Wauchula, noting the hospital also houses a large number of long term care patients with no plans to transition them back into the community. The state also expressed concern over a patient restraint tac-tic. Three state agencies conducted an unannounced inspection of the hospital earlier this month, days after news reports detailing patient abuse. The state has investigated roughly 200 abuse and neglect allegations at the hospital since 2005. Thirty-six of those cases were verified as abuse but none resulted in death. The hospital has 10 days to address the issues. Results in 3 tight races finalized TALLAHASSEE Floridas primary elec-tion results became final Thursday, including three legislative races decided by 34 or fewer votes, although at least one of those may be contested. The three-member Florida Elections Canvassing Commission, chaired by Gov. Rick Scott, met briefly to certify the results. Among them were easy top-of-the-ticket pri-mary wins for Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV, who will challenge the incumbent Nelson on Nov. 6.UF frat boys chase suspect GAINESVILLE Police say a burglary suspect ran after he was spotted in the bedroom of the Kappa Alpha fraternitys house mother at the University of Florida. But he didnt get far. According to a police report, some fraternity members chased 23-year-old Solomon Jamel Taylor III early Thursday morn-ing and held him down until police arrived. The Gainesville Sun reports Taylor entered the womans bedroom through a balcony. The woman was awakened when her dog started barking. University of Florida police say it doesnt appear Taylor is enrolled at the school or that he knew the woman. Missing teachers body found near Fort Myers LOS ANGELES Salma Hayek says she is proud to be Mexican and that comments suggesting otherwise were lost in translation. The 45-year-old actress issued a statement Thursday after German Vogue magazine quoted her as saying she hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican. Hayek says she has never denied her back-ground or culture, and has taught her young daughter to speak Spanish and appreciate Mexican history, music, food and folk art. She goes on to say that she has always tried to represent my Mexican roots with honor and pride and is saddened by the magazines misinter-pretation of her remarks. Hayek plays the leader of a Mexican drug cartel in the Oliver Stone drama Savages.King gives intimate show INDIANOLA, Miss. When B.B. King took the stage at the 32nd annual B.B. King Homecoming in the small Mississippi town of Indianola, he introduced each member of his band. Then he introduced himself. At 86, King may move a little slower than he once was, but theres no ques-tion about his ability to please fans. Some die-hard fans came from as far away as Britain to hear him sing the blues. It was an intimate performance, with King seat-ed inches from the crowd at the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center in Indianola. He closed with one of his anthems, The Thrill is Gone. For fans on a summer night in the Mississippi Delta, the thrill was back.Hairspray pros to run Oscars LOS ANGELES The producing team that helped to create such musicals as Chicago and Hairspray is overseeing the next Academy Awards cer-emony.

LAKE CITY REPORTER STATE FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 24-25, 2012 3A CURT ANDERSON Associated Press MIAMI The FBI is investigating whether a little-known Democratic congressional candi date improperly received thousands of dollars for campaign mailings from Republican U.S. Rep. David Rivera, a senior law enforcement official said Thursday. At least one of the mail ings from Justin Sternads campaign was critical of the eventual Democratic nomi nee, Joe Garcia, who has previously tried to unseat Rivera in Floridas 25th congressional district that stretches from suburban Miami to Key West. Authorities are looking into direct-mail and voter data services used by Sternads campaign prior to the Aug. 14 primary, said the official, who has knowl edge of the investigation but spoke only on the con dition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the probe is ongoing. The investigation was first reported by The Miami Herald. The FBI declined to confirm or deny the probe. Sternad did not return a telephone call. Rivera has denied any wrongdoing or having any connection to Sternads campaign. Earlier this week, Sternad filed amended forms with the Federal Elections Commission indicating that he had loaned his own campaign nearly $64,000 despite reporting rela tively modest income and investments on other fed eral forms. In a letter to the FEC, Sternad said he failed to report the loan earlier because he was waiting for a final spending tally. I have now received invoices for the expendi tures and this amendment represents satisfaction of those invoices, Sternad said in the letter. The amended FEC filing shows Sternads campaign spent nearly $47,000 with Rapid Mail. That compa nys owner, Joe Borrero, told The Herald that Rivera was behind the mailings, and they were sometimes paid for with envelopes stuffed with cash. Borerro did not return a telephone call Thursday from the AP. Hugh Cochran, the president of a voter list company called Campaign Data, told the newspaper that Rivera hired him to create the list eventually used for Sternads mail ings. Cochran, who also did not return email and phone calls, said he ran the voter list and emailed it to both Borrero and Rivera. On Sternads financial disclosure statement, he reported income of $14,490 through July from his job as night auditor at a Miami Beach hotel. The year before, the father of five reported earning $29,281 from two hotel jobs. He reported investment in a mutual fund but did not show taking any money out of it. Riveras campaign said in an email to the AP he had nothing to do with Sternad. Congressman Rivera has never met Mr. Sternad, has never spoken to Mr. Sternad, knows nothing about Mr. Sternad and has no connection whatso ever to Mr. Sternad or his campaign, the statement said. Congressman Rivera will continue to focus on important issues facing our country, such as the need to improve the economy and create jobs. In a subsequent phone interview, Rivera said Sternads amended finan cial disclosure forms speak for themselves and exonerate me from any false allegations that have been launched. Federal law limits con tributions from individu als to $2,500 per election, with serious criminal viola tions punishable by up to five years in prison. The FEC, however, often treats campaign finance viola tions as civil rather than criminal matters, imposing fines instead of seeking jail time. The Sternad flap comes as Rivera remains under federal investigation for potential tax violations related to a $1 million con tract he had with a Florida gambling company. A related state investigation earlier this year cleared Rivera of wrongdoing, although it raised many questions about his mix ture of campaign and per sonal funds. Despite no previous experience, Sternad fin ished third in the districts Democratic primary with 11 percent of the vote. 3A THANK YOU! Because education is too important to be left to anyone else.

Rick Scotts approval rating has improved to 41 percent, a poll released Thursday shows. But 49 percent of the 1,241 likely Florida vot ers polled Aug. 15-21 disapprove of Scotts performance as gover nor. However, the 41 per cent approval represents improvement for Scott, who consistently lan guished below 40 percent in several previous sur veys. The random telephone poll of 1,241 Florida voters by Quinnipiac University, CBS News and the New York Times had a margin of error is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points. Scott is scheduled to welcome delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Monday weather per mitting. Meanwhile, the same poll shows U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson leading Republican challenger Connie Mack IV by a margin of 50 per cent to 41 percent in their U.S. Senate contest. River rising JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter The Santa Fe River is expected to crest on Saturday, producing flooding in the Fort White region, hitting 25.6 feet. Steady and almost daily rains in recent weeks, including .7 inches on Tuesday, have saturated the local area, leaving the river swol len. In addition, the area is almost certain to get a drenching from Tropical Storm Isaac, which should be a hurricane by the time it nears North Florida. Floridians still dont embrace Gov. Rick Scott KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press Writer MIAMI An investigation of abuse allegations at a southwest Florida hospital that treats brain injuries revealed the hospital is treating people without such injuries, prompting the state on Thursday to ask the hospital to transfer those 50 patients else where. Three state agencies con ducted an unannounced inspec tion of The Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation in Wauchula earlier this month. The inspection came days after news reports detailing patient abuse, including two incidents in which staffers allegedly abused two autistic patients and another where a patient swallowed fish hooks and batteries in an attempt to escape the facility. Fifty patients were inappro priately admitted to the hospital because they didnt have a spinal cord or brain injury, state offi cials found. They ordered the hospital to make plans to relocate those patients. Additionally, the letter noted that a large number of patients are in long-term residen tial care with no plans to tran sition back to the community, which violates state statute for such a facility. The letter did not specify how many patients. Hospital officials said they will appeal the states request to trans fer those 50 patients, alleging the state misinterpreted the law. The patients in question deserve the best possible care and not only do we believe that (the states) administrative rec ommendations are without legal merit, we believe that their rec ommendations are harmful to the future care and rehabilitation of these patients, the hospital said in a statement. Patients from all over the coun try are sent to the facility. Elmer Cerano, executive direc tor of the nonprofit Michigan Protection & Advocacy Service, had a patient at the facility and said it was very difficult to remove her when she wanted to leave. Michigan does not have a cap on its no-fault auto insurance, making it a deep well for reha bilitative facilities to draw from, he said. Are people really going there because its a quality program or is it because of the no-fault cap? he said. The Department of Children and Families has investigated roughly 200 abuse and neglect allegations at the hospital since 2005, according to an agency spokeswoman. Thirty-six of those cases were verified as abuse or neglect, but the department is keeping the details of them con fidential because none resulted in death. The 238-bed hospital, which operates three transitional living facilities and a child-care unit on the campus, has 10 days to address the issues in the letter and come up with a corrective action plan or it could face thou sands of dollars in fines. The abuse investigations are ongoing, but state officials noted in the letter that they were concerned by patient complaints regarding the most restrictive and highest inten sity restraint method used to calm patients in crisis. State health offi cials asked the hospital for details of the restraint tactic, including specif ics on how patients are protected during it, according to the letter. State officials are still investigat ing additional abuse and neglect allegations. One recent case involv ing the exploitation of a patient was verified as abuse. The employee involved was fired and no other details were given, according to the letter. State officials cant com ment on abuse investigations, but did say that most cases of adult exploitation they investigate are financial. The hospital also failed to provide incident reports that state health offi cials requested nearly three weeks ago, according to the letter. The investigation also revealed that one hospital staffer should not have been hired because the individual had a criminal back ground. Officials did not give details of the crime and hospi tal officials said they took that staffer off the schedule and are working on an exemption. The hospitals owner says the abuse charges are old and being rehashed as part of an attempt by a neighboring business, a fer tilizer company, to damage the facilitys reputation so it can gain a lucrative permit to extract an estimated billion dollars worth of phosphate near hospital land. Hospital CEO Joseph Brennick says the hospital has dealt with abuse incidents by firing staff and installing surveillance cameras. Brennick believes that the fertil izer company, CF Industries, is seizing on past allegations to dis credit the hospital before a com ing decision by county officials on whether the company will be allowed to mine phosphate near hospital land. The company cannot mine within a quarter mile of the hos pitals property under a 2007 rul ing by a county board of commis sioners. Hardee County officials estimate there may be a few mil lion tons of phosphate within that quarter-mile area, worth roughly $1.25 billion. CF Industries is seeking a waiver to allow mining to pro ceed in the restricted area, which the county is expected to discuss later this month. A Tallahassee public relations firm has been calling attention to the hospitals abuse allegations on behalf of a consumer advocacy group. The PR firm also repre sents the fertilizer company, but both parties have denied claims they are promoting the hospitals abuse incidents.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com Q The Washington Times Q The Washington Post OPINION Friday & Saturday, August 24-25, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A ANOTHER VIEW G overnor Romney now owns the Republican, Ryan budget that puts millionaires ahead of Medicare and the middle class, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California recent-ly snapped. By picking Representative Paul Ryan, Governor Romney has doubled down on his com-mitment to gut Social Security and end Medicare as we know it, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada snarled. Pelosi and Reid know better. Presumptive GOP running mate Paul Ryans Medicare reform pro-posal is as extreme as the health plan available to every member of Congress. Ryan envisions average seniors enjoying Capitol Hill-style medical options. This, itself, would be a choice. Seniors who oppose choice in health coverage will be 100 percent wel-come to remain within traditional Medicare. Ryans far-Right Medicare reform is co-sponsored by Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon liberal Democrat. (2010 Americans for Democratic Action rating: 100 percent) Unlike most Democrats, Wyden understands that if Medicare traverses todays path, by 2024, it will tumble into a can-yon. As he and Ryan (2010 ADA rating: 0 percent) unveiled their legislation last December, Wyden said: Paul has also long-shared my view that the best way to hold down health costs is to give all Americans the ability to hire and fire their insurance company. Americans currently over the age of 55 would see no changes to the structure of their ben-efits, their bill summary states. Starting in 2022, Medicare would begin offering seniors a choice among Medicare-approved private plans competing alongside a traditional Medicare plan. So, Democratic horror stories about Republicans catapulting todays seniors from cliffs prove to be lies. If the GOP ticket wins and enacts Wyden/Ryan, Medicare benefits will not change for a decade. If Romney and Ryan lose, however, seniors soon will feel the pain of President Barack Obamas diversion of $716 billion from Medicare into Obamacare. Ten years hence, Wyden/Ryan would let Medicare recipients request premium support payments. As Wyden and Ryan argue, that would empower seniors to choose either a tra-ditional Medicare plan or a Medicare-approved private plan. Premium support is a Dullsville name for a dazzling idea. It should be rechristened Insurance Assistance (unexcit-ing, but fathomable), Kemp Grants (echoing collegiate Pell Grants, but honoring Ryans late mentor, former New York GOP Congressman Jack Kemp), Personal Health Grants (as col-umnist Quin Hillyer suggests), or MediChoice (as the TrueSpeak Institutes Jim Guirard advises.) These payments would offer more help for those who need it and less help for those who dont, Wyden and Ryan continue. Wealthier seniors who need help least would see their assistance reduced. Democrats who hate rich people should love how Wyden/Ryan pinpoints benefits on poorer Americans. As FactCheck.org further details, All plans cover hospital, surgical and physician services, and mental health services, pre-scription drugs and catastrophic coverage against very large medical expenses ... There are no exclusions for preexisting condi-tions. Participants may change plans during annual open-season periods. Democrats cannot explain why Medicare recipients need to become congressmen to enjoy such choices in health coverage. If RyanCare, in essence, is good enough for senior citizens like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, its good enough for any senior who wants it after 2022. Y ou dont have to have a severe intel-lectual disability to work at the Justice Department. But it helps. According to a July 31 policy memo titled Hiring of persons with targeted disabili-ties, otherwise problematic mental deficiencies are no bar-rier to jump-starting a career at Justice. The memo lists a number of targeted disabili-ties that trigger special hiring privileges in compliance with President Obamas Executive Order 13548. Among them are people with severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disabil-ity or other undefined current severe physical, intellectual or mental conditions. Most employers would balk at even minor mental disabilities in hir-ing a lawyer, let alone severe ones. But the policy states that the Cabinet department run by Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. must achieve a work force from all segments of society, which includes those who are teetering on the edge of sanity. Mr. Holders crazy new human-resources priority says its necessary to ensure that people with targeted disabilities have equal employment oppor-tunities. It then goes into detail on all the ways in which they will be given special, exclusive treatment. The disabled are eligible for direct hiring in a streamlined, non-competitive appointment process that the policy lauds as a win-win for the department and the appli-cant. Of course, this preferen-tial treatment is a lose-lose for the other, perhaps vastly more qualified applicants who were never let in the door, as well as for American taxpayers who cannot benefit from a superior level of public service. Affirmative action has gone far astray from its origins as a means of correcting specific acts of unlawful discrimination. Ironically under the first black president, the federal hiring process is separate and unequal. S yrias agonizing descent into civil war has cost 18,000 lives. What began as a peaceful protest against President Bashir al-Assad hardened after Mr. Assad ordered his troops to open fire on demonstrators. The opposition, fragmented at first, now appears to be wag-ing street-by-street combat in the main cities, including Damascus and Aleppo. Flags of the resistance are flying in some areas they control. In recent months, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton promised that the United States would support the Syria opposition with non?lethal assistance, such as communications gear. Separately, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been arming the fighters. Communications equipment is crucial allow-ing the resistance to coor-dinate during government-imposed Internet blackouts, providing warnings to civilians about approaching Syrian troops or sharing the location of makeshift medical facilities. It can also help the opposi-tion wage an information war against the Assad regime, documenting atrocities and broadcasting propaganda. But as The Posts Greg Miller reported Monday, the nonlethal aid seems to be slow in arriving. In interviews in Istanbul, a major hub for the opposition effort, Syrian activists expressed disappoint-ment that so little has reached them, despite Mrs. Clintons assurances of $25 million in assistance. In response, the State Department says more than 900 pieces of nonlethal equipment have been pro-vided. Were told that some are being shipped without being identified as American gear. But U.S. officials also acknowledge a slow start. Assistant Secretary of State Rick Barton vowed that assis-tance would speed up now that we have cleared many of the cobwebs in our own sys-tem and with our allies. Furnishing communications gear is a minimal and inad-equate response. For more than a year, President Obama has been assuring the world that Mr. Assad is bound to fall, but Mr. Assad has refused to take the cue. The White House clung for months to unrealistic hopes of a diplo-matic solution, with Russia improbably cast as peacemak-er. The United States should be providing leadership in helping the opposition estab-lish safe zones and defeat Mr. Assads tanks and planes. The longer the war goes on, the higher the likely cost to civilians and regional stabil-ity. On Monday, the president acknowledged the obvious: The likelihood of a soft land-ing seems pretty distant. Thats just the point and its why the United States must overcome the logistical and political hurdles to helping the opposition. The presidents other message on Monday was a warn-ing to Syria not to use its large and lethal chemical-weapons stockpile in the civil war. Mr. Obama threatened that a red line for us would be move-ment or use of the chemical weapons. This was an appro-priate message. But it does not resolve the problem of what to do with the dispersed chemical weapons if and when the regime falls. Hopefully, there are no cobwebs in the administrations planning for that contingency. To the Editor:Wednesday, I learned from the press that a report had been released in the investigation regarding my use of my office. At first I was angered that I had to learn of it from the press and not from the persons responsi-ble for it. After obtaining a copy from the press and reading it, I was outraged. At the advice of close friends, I considered the facts overnight and after some reflection I am now prepared to respond. First, I was of the initial position that certain claims in the memorandum were false in their finding as to why certain records were accessed. Days before the impending grand jury we had obtained a list of inquiries which were the subject of the investigation. Although the list went back to 2010, I was able to go through and identify the vast majority of them, most being criminal investigations or job applicant background inves-tigations. Yes, there were some that I had no recollection of, but it was common that when someone would come in or would call on the telephone about a case that I would simply look up informa-tion right then and would have limited recollection of it after all of this time. I prepared a listing for each inquiry and the reasoning for it, however I learned only last night that this response had not been provided to the investiga-tors. At the time it was pre-pared, we thought that I would be appearing before the grand jury and we would present the explanations at that time. Since we did not go to the grand jury, it was never seen nor considered by the investi-gators. Thus, without the ben-efit of knowing the why of the inquiry, the investigators simply formed their own opinions and were not reporting falsely, but rather incorrectly. This is what is so sad, they simply went for-ward with their report based upon their own assumption of whether my inquiry was proper, without ever actually knowing the basis for it. In most cases they simply incorrectly assumed the worst. With this said, the controversy is over. I have agreed to with-draw my bid for re-election and the case has been closed. There is no benefit to having friends arguing with friends about wheth-er there is a right or a wrong to this outcome. It is done. Pam and I are planning for my upcoming retirement at the end of my term, which will actu-ally end January 7, 2013. We have grown old together and would like to spend our remain-ing years in peace. I wish nothing but the best to all parties involved in this mat-ter and hope that tempers will subside and we can all get on with our lives. Thank you for your trust and understanding. This matter has to come to an end.Robert L.

I f you were asked what brings you the most joy in life, I bet your answer would involve someone rather than something. However, if you were asked what brings you the most frustration in life, chances are good your answer to that would be some one as well! Relationships tend to display the best and worst in all of us. Enjoying the best is easy, but what do you do about that relationship that often results in frustration, anger and/or confusion? First, realize that these feelings are indicators of an unhealthy element in your relationship and function like an internal alarm system. This alarm serves to let us know that things are not as they should besomeone important to us is affecting our life in a very negative way. In his book, Handling Difficult People, author Dr. John Townsend describes relationships as the delivery system for so many of the good things we need in life-love, safety, grace, warmth, encour agement, truth, forgiveness, and more. These elements make life meaningful, purposeful, and enjoyable. But life with a difficult person is none of those things. Relationships with difficult people can bring feelings of isolation instead of connection, and can actually work to destroy the affec tion that you once held. We can also begin to believe that nothing we try will fix the problem; this leaves us frustrated and we often resort to becoming someone we dont want to be when we are with our difficult person. So what should we do? Take a look at 1 Corinthians 13:4-6, and read the Biblical defini tion of love from a different per spective: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps not record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Loves nature is to stay with the relationship as it develops, grows, and matures. The fact that love is patient and kind does not mean that you minimize or deny hurtful behaviornor are we to become passive: doing nothing to solve the problem and simply praying and hoping that God will fix our difficult personwe are co-laborers with God, and He often shows us things to do in addition to prayer (we just often dont have the cour age to follow through.) Love is not proud, rude or self-seeking, meaning that we arent trying to change someone so that they become what we want, but that we long to see growth so they become who God created them to be. The always of love indicates that love must be protected to lastand often the best way to accomplish this is to confront the harmful behavior of your difficult person and put consequences in place, not to punish, but to motivate change. If you continue to enable your difficult person, you are not helping them. On the contrary, you are actually encour aging them to continue down this destructive path. Evaluate that difficult relation ship in you life, and put real proactive love into practice. Ask God for wisdom and instruc tion, and a dose of courage to follow through. What you put into practice today could bring great results in your relationship tomorrow. God wants your rela tionships to bring good things into your lifebecause your heart matters! Blessings, Angie S tudents of the Bible know the biblical account of Moses and the burning bush that was not consumed. We know that the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he (Moses) looked, and behold the bush was burning with fire; but the bush was not consumed (Exodus 3:2). Read Exodus chapters 3 and 4. The story goes on to say that Moses answered God when He called to him. God said to Moses He had seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt and would use him to deliver His people. Then Moses asked God when the people want to know who sent him who should he say. God said to Moses I AM who I AM. Tell them I AM has sent you (Exodus 3:13-14). In the Gospel of John it is interesting to note that the words I am occur at least twenty times with reference to Jesus. Sometimes we read I am He (with He italicized, denoting that it is a supplied word not in the original text). Sometime we read I am in connection with other words, such as I am the way, but always the I am identifies Jesus with Jehovah God, the great I AM in Exodus 3:14. In John 6:35 Jesus says I AM the bread of life. He who comes to Me will never hunger. John 6:48 He says I AM the bread of life. John 6:51 He says I AM the living bread. If anyone eats this bread he will live forever. John 8:12 Jesus says I AM the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness. John 8:23 He says I AM from above. I AM not of this world. John 8:24 Jesus says If you do not believe that I AM He you will die in your sins. John 8:28 He says When you lift up the Son of Man you will know that I AM He. John 8:58 Jesus says Most assur edly I say to you before Abraham was I AM. John 9:5 He says As long as I AM in the world I AM the light of the world. John 10:7 Jesus says I AM the door of the sheep. John 10:9 He says I AM the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved. John 10:11& 14 Jesus says I AM the good shepherd. John 11:25 Jesus says I AM the resurrec tion and the life. He who believes in Me though he may die, he shall live. John 13:13 Jesus says You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I AM. John 13:19 He says You may believe that I AM He. John 14:6 Jesus says I AM the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, but by Me. John 15:1 Jesus says I AM the true vine. John 18:4-8 when the enemy came to Him seeking to crucify Him, He said I AM He and when He said I AM He they drew back and fell to the ground. Again in verse 8 Jesus says I AM He. Do you know this great I AM? Does He know you?

When I was a kid, after church on Sunday night, Mother would say, Hang up your Sunday clothes! On Saturday afternoon Mother had made sure the shirt my father, brother and I wore with our suit was cleaned and ironed. She also had made sure she and my sisters had their Sunday dresses crisply ironed and ready to go. She wanted everyone in the family to look nice because she felt we were going somewhere special. Have you ever heard someone say, Hes got his Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes on? What were they saying? What mes-sage were they trying to deliver? What does our dress look like when we go to church? Several years ago in a conversation with an individual con-cerning this subject and how people dressed for Wednesday night, they said, Well, God has seen me in these clothes all day, I am sure they are good enough for Bible Study. Yet, would we wear to church what God sees some wear at the beach? I sure hope not! Is going to church something special or is it just something we have to do? Is being in the presence of God a special occasion? Is He someone important? Is He some-one that we want to make a good impression upon? Or, is He just God? When God brought the children of Israel to Mt. Sinai, He gave instructions to Moses concerning how the people were to dress. The Lords directions to Moses were, Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments; and let them be ready for the third day, for on the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people (Exodus 19:10, 11). Church is a place where we should wear our best clothes, but do you think it is the place for a fashion show? What part of our body are we trying to use to impress people; the inner or outer? Peter tells the women, let not your adornment be merely external but let it be the hidden person of the heart (1 Peter 3:3, 4). Guys, what do the clothes that your wife or daughter wear to church display about them to the world? Would you go to an interview in the clothes you wear to church? Would you wear them if you were going to meet someone very special? Does the price of the outfit matter? Which is more pleasing to the Lord, a nice pair of over-alls or a tailor-made suit? It depends! It depends upon which one shows your best to the Lord. To the poor farmer of the 1930s a pair of blue denim starched pressed shoulder strapped over-alls might be the best that he could afford, the best that he could buy. If that is true for someone today, then let them wear their overalls. However, how many of us think that most of us only have the money to buy a pair of overalls? I do not want to be rude or unkind, but do want us to think about how we are dressing for church. Do I think a suit is mandatory? Not necessarily. But, I do think we need to be dress-ing our best for the Lord. A tee shirt and a pair of blue jeans with holes in them would be fine if that is the best that we have. But is it? We all know that the way that we dress sends a message. The message we send depends upon the venue. What message are we sending when we are dressing for church? n Carlton G.

Jan Brewers office, seeking a retraction of her executive order to bar public benefits for illegal immigrants. On Aug. 15, Brewer ordered state agencies to deny drivers licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authoriza-tions under a new Obama administration policy. Brewer said she was reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law deny-ing taxpayer-funded public benefits and state identifica-tion to illegal immigrants. The faith leaders say they gathered nearly 7,000 signatures from Christians across the country opposed to Brewers executive order.

The single-topic Rock Center episode will air Thursday as originally planned, said the shows executive producer, Rome Hartman. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, will be the first Mormon presidential nominee of a major political party, and his campaign has gener-ally resisted talking about his faith. But Romney last weekend invited reporters to Mormon chapel services with his family, and a new campaign ad touted him as a defender of religious freedom. NBC requested a Romney interview weeks ago but was denied. With the new developments, the network made another request Monday but was turned down again. The newsmagazines producers thought it worthwhile to examine the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the eve of one of its members becoming the Republican nominee for president. During the hour, correspon-dent Harry Smith does a piece on why Mormons are so successful in business and tours a Salt Lake City warehouse where a huge amount of supplies is kept for the needy. Kate Snow profiles a gay person, a feminist and an interracial couple on their experiences within the church, and NBC finds a Mormon cast member of the Broadway show The Book of Mormon. What we set out to do very broadly is not an hour on Mitt Romney but an hour about the religion that has played a very important role in shaping who he is, NBC gets no Romneyhelp on Mormon special The Salt Lake Temple in Temple Square, Salt Lake City, Uta h, where Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov.

Romney is starting to open up a bit more about his lifelong commitme nt to Mormonism and lay leadership in the church, heeding pleas from backers who hop e it could help him overcome his struggles to connect with voters.Associated Press Associated PressMURFREESBORO, Tenn. A Tennessee mosque has received its final approval after a nearly two-year legal battle to pre-vent it from opening. Islamic Center of Murfreesboro board chair-man Essam Fathy said Thursday he was relieved and happy the mosque has its permanent occupancy permit. Since construction was approved in May 2010, the mosque has been targeted by vandalism, arson and a bomb threat. A group of neighbors sued Rutherford County to try to stop construction. Among other things, they claimed that local Muslims were compelled by their religion to try to overthrow the U.S. Constitution and replace it with Islamic law. That claim was dismissed, but construction approvals were voided briefly for other reasons before a federal judge last month cleared the way for the mosque to open.

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 24-25, 2012 ing over Haiti and the east ern two-thirds of Cuba. The storm was projected to head toward Florida as a hurricane by Monday, but the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said some forecast models predict it could go farther west into the Gulf of Mexico, so significant uncertainty remains about the threat Isaac poses to Florida. Isaac was centered 180 miles (285) kilometers south-southwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico, late Thursday afternoon, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph). It was moving west-northwest at 16 mph (26 kph), according to the hurricane center. Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe urged people to avoid crossing rivers and to tape their windows, and said they should ask relatives over seas to wire money so they can stock up on food and water. Above all, he said, it was important to stay calm. Panic creates more prob lems, he said. Lamothe and other officials in Haiti, which is prone to flooding, said that the government has set aside about $50,000 in emergency funds and that it had buses and 32 boats on standby for evacuations. While Haitis govern ment spent the day prepar ing for Isaac, others did not because they didnt have the means. The notion of preparation in a country where the bulk of the popu lation gets by on about $2 a day was met with a shrug. We dont have houses that can bear a hurricane, said Jeanette Lauredan, who lives in a tent camp in the crowded Delmas district of Port-au-Prince, stretching out her arms in concern. About 400,000 people remain in settlement camps that are mere clusters of shacks and tarps as a result of Haitis devastating 2010 earthquake. So far, Isaac itself had caused no reported inju ries or deaths, but police in Puerto Rico said a 75year-old woman died near the capital of San Juan on Wednesday when she fell off a balcony while filling a drum with water in prepa ration for the storm. Schools and government offices remained closed Thursday on the U.S. ter ritory, where Gov. Luis Fortuno said 7,800 people were without power and more than 3,000 had no water. With rain falling on and off throughout the day, the governor warned Puerto Ricans to stay away from beaches and swollen riv ers. Its not the day to par ticipate in recreational activities in these areas, Fortuno said. Jose Alberto Melendez, 51, disregarded the advice and went to a beach near Old San Juan. Its my birthday, he said. I had already planned to come to the beach. He unfolded his chair and turned on the radio just as a squall approached, sending him running for shelter. Nearby, a group of four friends visiting from Poland picked up their beach blankets and took cover as well. Agata Gajda, 24, said she and her three friends had slept on the beach because there was no room at a hostel. She said police woke them up Thursday morning and warned them about the storm. In the Dominican Republic, authorities began to evacuate people living in low-lying areas but encoun tered some resistance. Nobody wants to leave their homes for fear theyll get robbed, said Francisco Mateo, community leader of the impoverished La Cienaga neighborhood in Santo Domingo, the capi tal. The approach of the storm led military author ities at the U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to cancel pretrial hearings for five prisoners charged in the Sept. 11 attacks. They also evacuated about 200 people, including legal teams and relatives of Sept. 11 victims. Isaac also posed a threat to next weeks Republican National Convention in Tampa, where 70,000 del egates, journalists and protesters are expected to descend on the city. Convention officials said they were working close ly with state and federal authorities on monitoring the storm. We continue to move forward with our plan ning and look forward to a successful convention, convention CEO William Harris said in a statement. Florida Gov. Rick Scott said RNC officials had consulted with state, local and federal authorities and there were no plans to can cel the convention. Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said some outside agencies that had planned to send officers to help with con vention security in Tampa might be forced to keep them home to deal with a storm. My primary concern right now is that we will lose resources, he said Out in the eastern Atlantic, another tropi cal storm, Joyce, formed over the open water, but forecasters said it posed no immediate threat to land. The U.S. Hurricane Center in Miami said that the storm had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and that it was becoming disorganized. Associated Press writers Trenton Daniel in Portau-Prince, Haiti; Tamara Lush in Tampa; Steve Peoples in Washington; and Ezequiel Abiu Lopez in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, contributed to this report. 8A County GIS/911 mapping and addressing department) and well review it again, she said. The attention in the office has now shifted towards the November general election. Horne said poll workers were paid earlier in the week, polling locations were confirmed and the staff has checked supplies that will be used in the polling loca tions as part of the preparation work. She said people can request absentee ballots now and once the ballots are certified, they will be mailed to voters by the second week of October. Absentee bal lots going overseas and to military personnel will go out by the end of September. Horne encouraged people to par ticipate in early voting and noted it will be an extensive ballot. The ballot will include local, state and federal candidates including judges on the circuit court, district court of appeal and supreme court levels, 12 proposed state constitu tional amendments and four pro posed Columbia County Charter amendments. This is going to be a huge elec tion and we hope a lot of people will get out and vote, she said. Horne also suggested voters go to the Supervisor of Elections office and update their signatures before books for all political par ties close Oct. 9. cuss possible candidates. Officials said not every county has an organized Democratic committee, but they would not say which counties were unorganized. Once a candidate is tapped for the office, that person will have to accept the nomination, then meet with election officials at the Secretary of States office in Tallahassee and file the appropriate qualify ing paperwork. Fees will be paid to satisfy the qualifica tion process, since qualify ing by petition will not be possible. Locally in Columbia County, Lake City attorney Bill Brannon continues to be mentioned by officials as a Democrat on the short list to receive the nomination. Brannon has worked in the public defenders office, in private practice, as a mag istrate and currently works in Jarvis state attorneys office. On Thursday, Brannon would not speculate on his potential as a candidate and declined to comment. Once a candidate is selected from somewhere in the Third Circuit, all of their qualifying paperwork and documentation must be certified by the end of the business day on Tuesday, otherwise the Democrats default the ballot position and the Republican candi date will run unopposed in November. ISAAC: Storm could reach hurricane strength as early as Friday or Saturday Continued From Page 1A ATTORNEY From Page 1A BALLOT: Election officials prepare for November general election Continued From Page 1A By TAMARA LUSH Associated Press TAMPA Tropical Storm Isaac could force a shakeup of the security plans for the GOP convention in Tampa, because about half of the expected officers come from other parts of Florida and some could be forced to stay home for the storm, authorities said Thursday. More than 3,500 officers from 59 law enforcement agencies from around the state are scheduled to come to Tampa to patrol the streets as the convention opens Monday. About half would come from outside Hillsborough County and the city of Tampa. About 1,700 National Guard troops were already expected to help with patrols. Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said the number could increase if other law enforcement agencies dont end up sending officers. The storm is forecast to start affecting South Florida on Monday and could reach the Tampa area by Tuesday. Were in a situation right now where we dont know whats going to happen, Gee said. My pri mary concern right now is that we will lose resources. Gee said some agencies, espe cially in South Florida, might decide not to send officers to Tampa if the storm threatens their areas. As things change, they might have to prioritize, he said. Gees agency is in charge of the county where the convention will take place. The Hillsborough Sheriffs Office is providing the bulk of the staffing for the event because it is the largest agency in the area and also oversees the county jail. The Tampa Police is the other main agency handling security outside of the convention hall. The Secret Service is in charge of everything inside the conven tion hall. The sheriff joined Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor and represen tatives from the FBI and Secret Service at a media event Thursday. As they spoke to reporters, a large TV screen tuned to a cable news channel showed colorful radar images of Isaac swirling in the Caribbean. Convention officials said they were working closely with state and federal authorities on moni toring the storm. We continue to move forward with our planning and look for ward to a successful convention, convention CEO William Harris said in a statement. Florida Gov. Rick Scott said RNC officials were on a call Thursday with state, local and fed eral authorities and there were no plans to cancel the convention. Scott pointed out that the storm is still trending westward, and he hoped it would not have a major impact on Florida. Its a forecast and all the fore casts are prone to error, but for tunately it has gone a little bit west, Scott said. Hopefully it will dissipate by the time it gets over Cuba. Scott also said Florida is more prepared than any state in the country for hurricanes. The National Guard will be ready for any contingency, he said. So if that happened then the logical backup would be the National Guard. Steven Ibison, the special agent in charge of the Tampa division of the FBI, said he wasnt concerned about the number of officers on the ground. The FBI isnt involved in weath ercasting, he said. But we have plans in place. We always do here in Tampa. Castor and Gee stressed it was too early for any agency to dra matically change plans. Castor said that no one would really know where Isaac was headed until late this weekend. The only predictable element about a tropical storm or hurri cane is its unpredictability, she said.

Thank you for all your hard work and effort during the past school year. Keep up the great work! Eastside PTO What to watch for tonightN ew seasons can always bring on anxiety for fans. Sometimes thats a good thing and sometimes its the opposite. Luckily for the Tigers, that anxiety is a good thing this year as Columbia High is expected to be one of the top teams in the state. But theres a few areas that should be fun for the fan that likes to dig deep into the game to look at. While the ballwatchers should see plenty of excitement, it might not necessarily be where the coaches are paying the most attention. Heres three areas to keep an eye on tonight: Cornerback Experience is a thing of the past in the Columbia secondary, but that doesnt necessarily mean there arent athletes at the spot. Rakeem Battle moves over from running back in his junior season to shore up a unit that graduated two seniors. By Battles side will be a freshman in Roger Cray. How will a freshman respond once the lights go on and fans start to cheer? Head coach Brian Allen has faith in the freshman or he wouldnt be starting. During the summer the head coach said he has the ability to be one of the best to ever play at Columbia. Tonight is his first step. Offensive line There was no unit with less experience heading into 2011. Only Laremy Tunsil had started a game. This season, the offensive line returns all starters anchored by Tunsil. The Tigers will go as far as the front takes them. How will they execute out of the gate? Will there be penalties? After a summer practicing against Columbias front seven, this unit should be prepared for action. Shaq Johnson Perhaps no player improved more from the end of 2011 than Johnson. Last season, he was a favorite target of quarterback Jayce Barber in the fall, but had problems with drops at times. During the spring Johnson caught everything thrown his way and has continued to impress during the summer. Allen likes what he has seen out of Johnson and he should be one of the key components to the Tigers passing game this fall.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White High opens the foot-ball season by facing an old foe of Columbia County schools. Suwannee High visits Arrowhead Stadium at 7:30 p.m. today for a kickoff clas-sic game. We were fortunate to get them on the schedule instead of (last years clas-sic opponent) Episcopal, Indians head coach Demetric Jackson said. It is a good chance for fans to come out and see local teams. Jackson said the varsity will play three quarters and the junior varsity will play the fourth quarter. All spe-cial teams play will be live for the varsity; the JVs will not punt or kick off. Suwannee has a new coach in Jamie Rogers, who is from Baker County. He has been of the staff of Bobby Johns. This is his first year, and he is familiar with the area, Jackson said. He coached their spring game. Jackson said the Bulldogs will put up a formidable front line. They are pretty good on the offensive and defensive lines and that will present a challenge, Jackson said. We have to make sure we use our skill set to our advantage. Their numbers are better, but not many more players than us. After working with Johns, who has won state champi-onships in weightlifting, you can expect Rogers team to be strong. We got word they are spending four hours a day in the weight room, Jackson said. Still, the first fall action is about the Indians. I am anxious to see how our young guys step up, Jackson said. The spring game was their first var-sity experience. They got a ton of reps at FCA Camp (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), and will see how well they pick up what we taught. We have some young guys on defense and we want to see how physical they are in the game. The main thing is getting playing experience. We have been hitting each other for two weeks and we want to see how we do against an opponent, Jackson said. Jackson called for Fort INDIANS continued on 3B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIts finally time for the Columbia High football team to hit somebody besides themselves. The Tigers put on the pads tonight to host Santa Fe High in a kickoff classic contest for the second con-secutive season. Last year, Columbia defeated the Raiders, 19-13, in Alachua. Columbia coach Brian Allen said the Tigers wont scheme for the Raiders, but hopes to see much better execution this season. We have to execute no matter what look they throw at us, Allen said. But that doesnt mean that the Tigers are already looking ahead toward week one opponent Baker County High. Weve peaked a little, but were not looking ahead, Allen said. We dont want to get ahead of ourselves. Allen is satisfied with his starters after a spring and summer of work, but hes looking for the second-team unit to make a name for itself against the Raiders. We want them to solidify themselves, Allen said. We want to know that if one of our guys go down that we can call on them under the lights. Still, Allen is excited to see a couple of units start-ing with the running backs. I think Lonnie Underwood is a guy that people are going to see how explosive he is, he said. Hes an explosive change of pace from Ronald (Timmons) and Braxton (Stockton). Ronalds a straight ahead runner and Braxton can make quick cuts. Lonnie is a little mix of them both. The Tigers will also replace Dequan Ivery along the defensive line and Allen said Brett Nukem will get his first start. Well break in a couple of new starters, Allen said. Nukem will start for the first time and Roger Cray will start at cornerback as a freshman. Then we have Antonio Pelham who is in his first year as a starter and Alex Webber is going to compete. We think we have the depth we need. You look at the good teams and they all have depth. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Tiger Stadium.

Add one more name to the star-studded list of SEC standouts sidelined by off-field issues: Tennessee wide receiver DaRick Rogers. Rogers, a first-team allSoutheastern Conference receiver last year, was suspended indefinitely Thursday for a violation of team rules. Tennessee coach Derek Dooley said he doesnt expect Rogers to rejoin the team this season, though he didnt complete-ly rule out the possibility. When you get into the coaching profession, you quickly learn that probably the No. 1 professional haz-ard is the behavior of 18to 22-year-olds, Dooley said. I can assure you guys this, that theres not one player, theres not really one mem-ber in the whole organiza-tion that were not prepared to go play without. Rogers, who had 67 catches for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns last sea-son, is the latest high-pro-file SEC player to run into trouble. Tyrann Mathieu, a Heisman Trophy finalist last season, was kicked off LSUs team this month. Georgia dismissed run-ning back Isaiah Crowell in June after his arrest on weapons charges. Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer transferred to Arkansas State after get-ting suspended indefinitely before last seasons Chick-fil-A Bowl for a violation of team rules, then he was kicked off his new team in July. Dooley wouldnt say what would it take for Rogers to rejoin the Volunteers this season. I dont want to get into specifics on that, Dooley said.

We want to show Suwannee County how we play football. FSU hopes to live up to hypeBy BRENT KALLESTADAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State is heav-ily favored to win its first Atlantic Coast Conference title in seven years and per-haps challenge for a nation-al championship. Still, Jimbo Fisher said though there is a sense of urgency, there is no more pressure than usual on the Seminoles. I dont think its this year or bust at all, said Fisher, now in his third year as head coach. We have much more depth than weve ever had since Ive been here. Still, the Seminoles have plenty to prove to a fan base that expected more than a 9-4 showing a year ago and no longer fills Florida States 83,000-seat stadium on a regular basis. The Seminoles were expected to get back among the nations elite in 2011, but an early three-game los-ing streak took care of their preseason hopes of winning the ACC and a BCS bowl berth. This season begins with the same optimism. Florida State should have little trouble posting its 36th straight winning season and receiving a 31st consecutive bowl bid, but Fisher expects much more. He believes another year of experience will help his team avoid last years pit-falls and get back to a BCS bowl for the first time since 2005. Fisher points to his teams wealth of talent that includes one of the best returning defenses in the country (the Seminoles gave up only about 15 points per game last sea-son), an experienced fifth-year senior quarterback EJ Manuel and one of the nations top placekickers in Dustin Hopkins. Well be a very good football team, Fisher said. Everybodys got to be ready when their number is called. A favorable schedule the Seminoles only leave the state three times doesnt hurt. A seven-game home schedule includes a pair of lower-division schools to begin the campaign followed by two more home games before a trip to Tampa where Florida State hopes to avenge a 2009 loss to South Florida. The only trips outside Florida boundar-ies are at North Carolina State, Virginia Tech and Maryland. The 46-year-old Fisher has banned his players from using social media accounts during the season in hopes of keeping them more focused on that task at hand. Florida State finished 94 in 2011 after posting a 10-4 mark in Fishers first year as head coach follow-ing three seasons as pre-decessor Bobby Bowdens offensive coordinator. The much heralded defense salvaged the 2011 season by smothering Florida and Notre Dame in the final two games That unit returns virtual-ly intact led by defensive ends Bjoern Werner and Brandon Jenkins, and safe-ty Lamarcus Joyner. The Seminoles have recorded 88 quarterback sacks the past two seasons, including 21.5 by Jenkins. Florida State gave up an average of only 15 points a game last year despite sur-rendering 35 to Clemson and Wake Forest on succes-sive weekends. The Seminoles will have to replace punter Shawn Powell, who graduated, and return specialist Greg Reid, who was kicked off the team after several viola-tions of team rules. Reid, who was also a two-year starter at cornerback, was only 180 yards shy of the ACC punt return mark of 1,296 yards held by former Virginia Tech star Eddie Royal. Powells 44.2 career averaged stands as the best in Florida State history. But Florida State does have Hopkins, the placekicker known for his gold-colored shoes, returning for this final season. He is with-in reach of both the school and ACC scoring records of 393 points. He has four field goals of more than 50 yards, including a 55-yard kick that beat Clemson 16-13 in 2010. Its been a dozen years since Florida States last run at a national title an exasperating period for fans spoiled accustomed to the Seminoles being contend-ers. Those successful teams were always strong at quar-terback, especially in the national title years of 1993 and 1999 when Heisman Trophy winners Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke were at the helm. Fisher said EJ Manuel, his first marquee recruit, has simi-lar abilities. He can lead you to a championship, Fisher said about his 6-foot-5, 238pound quarterback. Hes much bigger than the elusive Ward and far more mobile than Weinke. They understood what to do in order to win games whether they were hav-ing a great game or hav-ing a bad game, Manuel said of Ward and Weinke. They still understood what it took, how to put their teams in situations to win the game. Manuel, sporting a new beard, said he dropped about 10 pounds in the off-season and believes hes in the best shape of his life headed into the Sept. 1 opener against Murray (Ky.) State. Hes 13-4 as a starter in a career and has thrown for 4,344 yards and 24 touchdowns. Manuel and the offense could get a boost from the return of wide receiv-ers Willie Haulstead and Rashad Greene, both attempting to rebound from serious injuries. Haulstead, who sat out all of last season with concus-sion symptoms, caught 38 passes for 587 yards and six touchdowns as a sopho-more in 2010. Hes 6-3 and provides another big target for Manuel, who already has 6-6 senior Rodney Smith and 6-6 redshirt freshman Kelvin Benjamin available along with a handful of smaller veteran receivers. Theyre led by 6-foot, 175-pound sophomore Rashad Greene, who caught 38 passes for 596 yards and seven TDs last season as a freshman despite miss-ing several games with inju-ries. Chris Thompson, who ran for 845 yards and six touchdowns as a sopho-more in 2010 when he had three touchdown runs of more than 70 yards, suf-fered a season-ending back injury in the fifth game last year, but is back in the mix at tailback with sophomore Devonta Freeman and James Wilder, Jr., for car-ries. But the offensive line hasnt been able to provide enough protection or open holes; its been the Seminoles Achilles heel the past two years. Fisher said that problem is solved now with a sophomore-dominated front that didnt see much action until the win over Notre Dame in a season-ending bowl game. Guys have played and even guys who havent played who are young are very talented, Fischer said. Our weakness last year may now be our strength because we had to play so many guys. Manuel, who missed one full game and a half of another after being knocked out of the Oklahoma game in the third quarter, took a pounding last year behind a line that gave up 41 sacks. But Fisher is counting on the group to do a better job protecting Manuel and helping ignite a dormant running game. I think well have a very good offensive line, Fisher insisted. When youre good on the offensive line, you can have a very good football team. ASSOCIATED PRESSFlorida State quarterback EJ Manuel (3) hands off in the first half of Florida States NCAA college football Spring G ame on April 14 in Tallahassee. New faces, but old issues facing Miami in 2012By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressCORAL GABLES The starting quarterback, gone. The teams most productive runner in a decade, gone. The top two receivers, gone. The best defensive player and unquestioned locker-room leader, gone. Still, somehow, hope is not gone at Miami. Even after a 6-6 season, and even with the NCAA investigation into compli-ance practices that over-shadowed last season still unresolved sanctions arent expected to be hand-ed down until early next year the Hurricanes are heading into Al Goldens second year on the sideline insisting they have enough talent to contend in the Atlantic Coast Conference. For us to get back to where we want to be in the college football world, we can talk about everything and what the expectations are and anything on the out-side, Golden said. But the reality of it is, for us at the University of Miami, right here, right now, theres only one way out, and thats the (ACCs) Coastal Division. If thats the case, the Hurricanes might still need some more time to get things on the right road. Miami has not won an ACC title since joining the league, and hardly anyone expects that to change in 2012. The Hurricanes fin-ished in a tie for fourth in the Coastal last season at 3-5, and were picked fifth in the six-team division in this years preseason poll. That would have seemed unthinkable a decade ago, though this team has seri-ous questions to answer, and last years team wasnt exactly world-beaters to begin with. We want to set our mark, said freshman defen-sive back Tracy Howard, a highly touted recruit who signed with Miami despite the looming NCAA issues and may wind up starting right away. We want to be known as the guys who brought The U back. On offense, there are new faces in key roles. Stephen Morris starts the year having assumed the quarterback role from Jacory Harris (2,486 yards, 20 touchdowns as a senior in 2011). Mike James becomes the featured running back now that Lamar Miller (1,272 yards, nine TDs in his final college season) is with the Miami Dolphins though freshman back Randy Duke Johnson will likely see tons of carries by the time the season ends. Tommy Streeter left early and Travis Benjamin gradu-ated, a duo that combined to catch 87 passes, 11 of them for touchdowns, last season. Defensively, Sean Spence was widely considered Miamis best player for the past two seasons. Hes now with the Pittsburgh Steelers, leaving the Hurricanes with a gaping hole at both line-backer and leader. Its all on the O-line for No. 23 FloridaBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida returns six of its top seven offensive line-men from last season. That could be good or bad. The 23rd-ranked Gators were mostly mediocre up front in 2011, failing to con-sistently open holes for the running game and giving up almost as many sacks (23) as the offense scored touchdowns (30). The result was a 7-6 season Florida barely avoided its first losing season since 1979 and then some major offseason changes aimed at rebuild-ing the trenches. Coach Will Muschamp hired Tim Davis to replace Frank Verducci, who fol-lowed former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis to Kansas, and complete-ly revamped the teams weight-lifting program in hopes of getting bulkier and brawnier linemen. Theres been marked improvement up front from this time last year or really any time last year, said Muschamp, who called his team soft late last season, a shot many believe was directed mostly at the O-line. Now those guys have been playing together for a year, practicing with the same guys. Thats a devel-opmental position. That position takes time, and those guys have contin-ued to take strides. Really, really pleased with what theyve done. By all accounts, the line has looked consider-ably better in camp. The first real test comes Sept. 1 when Florida hosts Bowling Green in The Swamp. A better gauge might happen the follow-ing week at Texas A&M. The Gators struggled to get much going against the Southeastern Conference heavyweights Alabama and LSU last season. Holes were scarce for speedy run-ning backs Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps, and time was limited no matter who was standing in the pock-et John Brantley, Jeff Driskel or Jacoby Brissett. The linemen insist things will be different this fall. I just think having a year under our belt (will help), especially play-ing together and going through the struggles last year and pulling together and being closer with these guys, guard Jon Halapio said. Definitely just playing with each for a year, we build that trust factor. Muschamp is relying on the line to make a differ-ence this season. Floridas offense ranked 105th in the nation last year.

Denny Hamlin727; behind -96When it came to positioning themselves for a spot i n the Chase for the Sprint Cup,the real winners on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway were Kasey Kahne,who recovered from an early race incident with MarkMartin to finish third,and Ryan Newman,who soldiere d through on a day when he was feeling ill to finish eighth. Greg Biffle won the race and moved to the top of th e points standings,but thats not as important as it was in years past,because the points will be reset to star t the 10race,championship-deciding Chase. With three regular season races left to run,Kahne a nd Newman are the top two drivers in the wild card sta ndings.The Chase field will be filled by the top 10 d rivers in the standings,plus two more who will get in based o n race victories and points.Kahne has two wins and is 11th in the standings.Newman has one win and is 13th in poi nts. Marcos Ambrose,whose win a week ago at Watkins Glen put him in the wild card hunt,finished fifth a t Michigan,but still is fifth in the wild card race b ehind Kyle Busch,who was 13th at Michigan,and Jeff Gordon who remains fourth in the wild card standings despi te a blown engine at Michigan that left him with a 28thplace finish.Joey Logano struggled to a 31st-place finish and is 18th in the overall standings and sixth in the wild card running. Kahne suffered through a miserable start to the sea son, his first at Hendrick Motorsports,but now hes feel ing better about his prospects for the immediate future. I just felt really good about our speed,he said. Our car has been really fast.Weve been pretty consiste nt as a team.We want to make it to the Chase.Thats a big p art of our season,something that were really shooting for .I think our team has done a great job of that. It would still be nice to get one more win and mak e that Chase spot,make it happen.But well see.We still ha ve good tracks to go,we just need to keep running up f ront. Newman acknowledged that like Kahne,hed like to ge t another win in the next three weeks to put him in a better position for a Chase berth. A win is going to answer a lot of questions,and we are all trying real hard,he said.We had about a 10thplace car and finishing eighth,I think were proud of tha t. The Sprint Cup Series is racing on sever-al repaved race tracks this season,atPocono,Michigan and Kansas,all tracks that chose to put down new asphalt becauseof the deterioration of the existing surfaces. This weekends race at Bristol Motor Speedway also will be run on a much differentsurface,but the changes were made for anentirely different reason.After seeing Bristolsyears-long string of sellouts come to an end,and a sea of empty seats at the race back inMarch,track owner Bruton Smith decided toredo the top groove,taking away banking andmaking it less likely that drivers will run upthere during the race. The idea was to put the high-banked concrete half-mile oval back like it was before a2007 reconfiguration that brought about side-by-side racing,but not as much beating andbanging as before. Many in the sport say the changes in the racing were due more to the cars than thetrack,but fans say they wanted the trackchanged,and Smith responded accordingly. Saturday nights race should provide an indication of whether the track was the prob-lem or not,but the debate likely will continuefor years. I just hope they didnt screw up the race track,said Ryan Newman,who holds the trackrecord at Bristol with a lap at 128.709 miles perhour back in 2003.The racing was differentthan what we had there in the past because ofthe tire,to me,not because of the race track. I hope that the racing is good.I hope they didnt take the racing away.The beating,banging and crashing is not the racing that Ilike.Thats what some of the fans enjoy,but thats not the racing I like.I like being able torun side by side. He said the problem with the tires is that they were too good,in a way.The tires didntwear significantly,so speeds didnt drop offover long stretches of racing. Your car didnt fall off,your balance didnt change,and everybody was virtually the samespeed,he said.We passed,and we raced sideby side,but it made it difficult to see the guycoming from 10th on new tires to pass the guys that were in the top five. It just didnt happen the way it used to.To me,the tires are the biggest issue when itcomes to a place like that. Carl Edwards,who got his one Bristol win in Sprint Cup back in 2008,is among thosetaking a wait-and-seeapproach.He did saythat since all the changes were to the topgroove,it will affect him less than othersbecause he spends most of his time on the bot-tom anyway. Who knows what will happen,Edwards said.Anytime you change a track like thatthere is no telling.It might make it a com-pletely different race,and I guess in the endthat is what they are trying to do. I give credit to Bruton [Smith] and those guys for trying to make the racing as good asthey can and not afraid to make changes. I think all of us go there hoping for a really good race. Brad Keselowski,winner of the past two Sprint Cup races at Bristol,said that no mat-ter how the track is configured,its at the topof his list of tracks. Bristol,to me,is a mans race track,and I respect that place so much,and I think ittakes a level of respect for it,which from DayOne,the first day I was there and walked inthere,I respected it,but I also wanted to winthere,he said.I wanted to prove to myselfand others that I could be the man to win at amans racetrack.So its always been a chal-lenge to me,and its one that for some reasonhas taken a piece of me somewhere deepinside and made it rise to the next level,and Ijust love it for that reason It feels good going there. NOTEBOOK Engine woes plague HendrickSundays Pure Michigan 400 saw three drivers that use engines from Hendrick Motorsportssidelined with engine problems.JimmieJohnson was leading with six laps to go andpoised to get his first-ever Michigan victorywhen his engine blew.His teammate JeffGordon also lost power in his engine,as didTony Stewart,who runs Hendrick engines inhis cars. Its something that is not a norm for sure, Stewart said.I appreciate everybody at theHendrick engine department Its uncommon to have a problem like this there.Its not something Im concerned aboutand having problems in the future with,its justa bad day and like I said,we have the bestengine department in the world,in my opinion.Safety issue raised after crashMark Martins crash into the blunt end of an opening in the pit wall at Michigan raised ques-tions about the safety of those openings.Theimpact destroyed his car,but no crew membersor others were injured. Brad Keselowski said changes may be in order. Over the course of time,we always get complacent and think that weve hit all the buttonson the safety side,he said.Then you see some-thing like that.It shows you why you have tonever quit working at making these cars andtracks safer,because that could have been a lotworse,whether it was for Mark or for the crewmembers or anybody. Later,a track representative issued a statement saying:The safety of the drivers is para-mount.So we will seek NASCARs opinion andwork with them on any recommendations theymay have on how we can improve any part of thecompetition area - that includes pit road,pitwall,the track,anything competition-related. The openings are similar to those at many other race tracks.NASCAR finds global grooveSaturdays races for NASCARs secondandthird-tier circuits definitelyhad an international flavor.Nelson Piquet Jr.fromBrazil won the CampingWorld Truck Series race atMichigan and wrapped him-self in Brazils flag after-ward. Later that day,the Nationwide Series raced atCircuit Gilles Villeneuve inMontreal.Hometown driverAlex Tagliani started on the pole and was a con-tender for most of the race.Jacques Villeneuve,racing on the track named for his late father,dominated the latter stages of the race before los-ing on a green-white-checkered-flag run to thefinish.Justin Allgaier,who races for the sameTurner Motorsports team as Piquet,took the vic-tory,his first ever on a road course. Winning in Montreal means so much because all the people in the series enjoy coming here,Allgaier told reporters after his win.The atmos-phere is great,the fans never disappoint here,but the race played out perfectly for us. Allgaier,who was running third on a restart that decided the race,got past Villeneuve andSam Hornish Jr.to take the win.Hornish fin-ished second and Villeneuve third.

R Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse (N) Larry Wilmores Race, Religion & Sex COURTESY PHOTOColumbia High baseball player Jake Bates had the oppo rtunity to serve as bat boy for the Jacksonville Suns minor league baseball team this sum mer. Bates spends time in minor leagueBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIf you went to a Jacksonville Suns game this year, then you know Lake Citys Michael Kirkman wasnt the only native involved in a professional baseball game. Columbia sophomore Jake Bates spent time this summer serving as bat boy for the AA baseball team learning in the process. My experience was very positive and very cool, Bates said. It was pretty awesome to be around all of the players and coaches. While Bates plays at the high-school level, he said theres a notable difference in the game hes spent the summer watching. I learned that competitve play at the pro level, even at the minor league level, is a lot different than the level I play at Columbia High School, Bates said. They have a lot of talent on the Suns and all of the visiting teams that came to town. Bates also used the opportunity to learn from profes-sionals at his position. I was able to work with the Suns catchers and catching coach prior to the games, he said. I learned a lot of pointers from them and things that I can use to be a better catch-er this upcoming baseball season. The sophomore is hoping to bring back some of the tools hes learned in his sec-ond season with the Tigers. What I learned will, ultimately, make me a better baseball player, he said. The catcher is one of the most important positions on the field and if I can be a better catcher, that will help us be a better team that hopefully will be able to bring home a district cham-pionship this season. I am looking forward to playing the next three seasons at CHS because our team is only going to get better. But being a bat boy wasnt all fun and games for Bates as he had extensive duties. Well, I had to arrive two hours before the first pitch, he said. I had to get cool-ers of water and Powerade and make sure they were ready. I had to be there for batting practice. I also had to rub down nine dozen baseballs before the game with this special baseball mud that every minor and major league team uses. And his duties extended into the game. During the game, I had to help the players with all of their stuff, help the coaches, bring baseballs out to the umpire stuff like that. Most of the fun came for Bates following the contest. After the game, I had to do stuff like clean up the dug-out, clean up after the players and clean cleats, he said. After I got through with that, I would go to the club-house where they had dinner waiting on us. The food was always good and it was fun to eat with the players. It was definitely something I would like to do again.
6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 24-25, 2012 DEAR ABBY: Im writing for advice on friendship. There is a person who insists we are best friends. She calls every day to gos-sip and get into peoples business, including mine. We are grown women and I find this childish. I am a loner. I dont like too many people in my space, but I dont want to hurt her feelings. I just want her to get a life. Im married; shes single. We have nothing in common, in my opinion, and she tries to keep up with my every move. If I dont answer the phone at home, she calls me at work. Help me tell this person, without being hurtful and rude, that I like her but I want to have a normal adult relationship with her. I have other close friends, but I dont have to call or talk to them every day to maintain our friendship. -INFRINGED UPON IN MISSISSIPPI DEAR INFRINGED UPON: The woman may be trying to live vicariously through you, which is why shes calling daily and pumping you for informa-tion. Tell her that phone calls at work are distract-ing, so please dont call you there. She should also be told that while you like her, the closeness she craves has become claustrophobic and is making you uncomfort-able, so to please limit her calls to one or two a week. If you do not set boundar-ies, you cant expect her to observe them. DEAR ABBY: I know a fairly well-to-do couple who, after living together for a while, have decided to get married. I went to their online wedding registry to select something for them and was stunned to see that several of the items they had on there were pricey items for their CATS. Is this the status quo these days, or is it just plain bad taste? I chose to put money toward another item, but now Im wondering if it will go where it was directed -and not to the cats. It was also suggested that I provide an email address so that an e-card of thanks might be sent. Abby, you keep telling your readers that times have changed. I reluctantly guess we need to resign ourselves to the emails, but what is your take on the gift suggestions? -OFFENDED WEDDING GUEST IN NEW YORK DEAR OFFENDED: The couple you mentioned may have most (or all) of the household items they need. While the request for something for their pets instead of themselves is somewhat unusual, no rule of etiquette forbids it. The object is to give something they can use, and Im hav-ing trouble understanding why you find their request offensive. I do, however, take exception to the idea of a generic, mass mailing being used to acknowledge wed-ding gifts rather than an INDIVIDUAL thank you. If thats what theyre planning, it seems more of an imper-sonal shrug than an actual expression of gratitude. DEAR ABBY: A woman at work wears flip-flops every day. The sound of her walking is extremely annoy-ing, to the point where I get a headache every day. The boss says her footwear is fine. Any advice? Thanks. -FOOTSTEPS IN OHIO DEAR FOOTSTEPS: If the boss says her footwear is fine, then youre out of luck. Wear earplugs, use aspirin as directed and pray for an early winter. DEAR ABBY: Is it wrong to answer a ques-tion with a question? -CURIOUS IN K.C. DEAR CURIOUS: Why do you ask? DEAR ABBY: My sister sent me an email asking what I was getting our mom for her birthday because she had very few ideas. I told her I was planning to get Mom a gift card so she could buy a book for her e-reader. Two days later, my sister emailed me back telling me she liked my idea so much she used it and mailed Mom the same gift card herself. She said its no big deal if we got Mom the same thing. Its a big deal to me. I think it was rude and inconsiderate. She says Im being ridiculous because its only a gift card and it doesnt matter if Mom got two of them. To me, if you ask what Im getting someone as a gift, its rude to run out and buy that item yourself. Who do you agree with? -LEARNED A LESSON IN LEWISBURG, PA. DEAR LEARNED A LESSON: I agree with you. But rather than hold a grudge, take the lesson to heart. The next time your sister asks you for gift sug-gestions for a relative, tell her, Gee, I havent decided yet. DEAR ABBY: I am an 11-year-old boy who lives in San Francisco. I read your column in the San Francisco Chronicle every day. I love your thinking and wish I could be as sensible as you. I just wanted to ask: How old do you think someone should be to read your col-umn? I know your column can be possibly inappropri-ate, but love reading it any-way. -T.P. IN S.F. DEAR T.P.: You are not the only young person who reads my column. (I printed a letter from a 7-year-old earlier this week.) I have been told that my column has been used for many years to start important con-versations between people of all ages. When I was growing up, no literature in our house was off limits -and any question I asked my parents was given a straight answer. I hope its the same in your family because if it is, you will grow up to be at LEAST as sensible as me. DEAR ABBY: My daughter has given me per-mission to resume commu-nication with my grandson, Justin. She has kept us apart since he was 3. Justin is now 17. I have been told by the other grandparents that Justin holds no animosity toward me. He knows I have never given up hope that one day we could reunite. Because of my daughters unpredictable temperament and her use of my grandson as a way to control me, Im leery and dont trust her to keep the door open between us. Im afraid shell slam it shut again. -LOVING, LONGING GRANDMA DEAR GRANDMA: Write your grandson a sweet note and inform him that his mother has given permission for you to make contact with him. Ask him to call you, so he can begin getting to know you. Find out what his plans are, and invite him to visit. However, do this SLOWLY -because you still dont know how much damage your daughters unpredict-able temperament has done in the formation of his personality and character. Proceed with your eyes wide open. Because it appears your daughter wants to abandon her son as soon as she legally is able to, he will need all of the caring and supportive relatives he can find. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY Happy Birthday: Emotional matters can ruin your plans. Separate what you must do from what you want to do. Make detailed and organized plans that will allow you to find a way to complete everything on your to-do list. Your numbers are 3, 11, 16, 27, 31, 34, 45. ARIES (March 21April 19): You may have some interesting ideas, but before you jump in with two feet make sure they are feasible. Dont let someone you love take advantage of you. A change in your financial situation will be due to your living arrangements. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Not everyone will lead you down the right path. Listen to whats being offered, but dont sign up. Dont be afraid to branch out on your own if you have a better plan or ser-vice to offer. Love is in the stars. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Listen care-fully to whats being said. Someone you are close to may not be telling you the truth. Rely on past experi-ence to help you decipher whats going to unfold. Once you feel certain, express your concerns. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): An impulsive move will leave you in a precari-ous position. You are best to get out and network with people who have the potential to help you get ahead. Love is in the stars, and planning something special for two will bring good results. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Wager the pros and cons before you voice your opinion. Not everyone will be happy with your choices. Make all your arrangements first to avoid interference. An emotional scene will leave you feeling guilty. Do whats best for you. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Watch every move you make. Someone will be ready to criticize you if you make a mistake. Dont let past problems resur-face. Concentrate on the moment and what you can do now to make your life better in the future. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Resolve issues that are holding you back per-sonally and professionally. Dont stifle the way you feel. Its your turn to speak up and force the changes you need made in order to achieve happiness. Dont let love get you down. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep up and take charge. Expect to face situ-ations that require you to move quickly. Love is in the stars and taking advan-tage of an opportunity to spend time with someone you love should be your intent. Set your priorities straight. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Honesty is a must. Trying to hide your true feelings will only lead to trouble. Size up your situ-ation and put whatever problems behind you as quickly as possible. Dont feel guilty when you know you are doing whats right. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A financial problem can make you look bad if you try to cover up a mistake you made. A couple of changes will save the day. Its best to own up to an error and to find a solution. A personal part-ner needs reassurance. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Make a decision based on your emotional needs. Broaden your hori-zons by opening doors that were closed in the past. Reconnecting with an old friend will pay off emotion-ally, mentally and finan-cially. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Overreacting or being impulsive will make mat-ters worse. Separate your emotions from what needs to be done and get with it. Dont make a repeat performance with some-one who doesnt deserve a second chance. Love is highlighted; choose wisely. ++ Birthday Baby: You are creative, detailed and capable. You are sensitive and unique.
