Lt. Mark Boatright, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper with almost 30 years experience, is among sev eral FHP Troop B troopers who worked on a variety of security and support details performing different tasks during the convention. Boatright, along with Troop B troopers Leon Gill and Wayne Gill, were assigned to the disaster response trailer. Basically we provide logistical support and ser vices for the other personal who are assigned down here from around the state, Boatright said. Other troopers from Columbia County are work ing with the mobile field force. Boatright estimated that close to 20 troopers from Lake City are work ing at the RNC. He said roughly a quarter of the Floridas state patrol troop ers are working the event on details providing secu rity and other support ser vices. Boatright said working on the various details is quite different from tradi tional highway patrol work. This is a break from the routine of every day traffic patrol in the district, he said. There are FHP troopers on the mobile field force assigned to riot control, while others are assigned to the bridges as well as road security details for the buses that carry the del egates back and forth from St. Petersburg and Tampa. Boatright said this is the first political convention he has attended working in the capacity of a law enforce ment officer where nation al security is part of the assignment.

By DAVID ESPO and ROBERT FURLOW Associated Press TAMPA Mitt Romney launched his fall cam paign for the White House in a Republican National Convention finale Thursday night, declaring what America needs is jobs, lots of jobs and promising he has a plan to create 12 mil lion of them. Now is the time to restore the promise of America, Romney said in excerpts released in advance of his prime-time speech to a nation struggling with 8.3 percent unemployment and the slowest economic recovery in decades. Many Americans have given up on this presi dent, but they havent ever thought about giving up. Not on themselves, Not on each other. And not on America, Romney said. He muted his criticism in the advance excerpts of President Barack Obama, his quarry in a close and unpredictable race for the White House. I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed, he said. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division. This isnt something we have to accept , he said, appealing to millions of vot ers who say they are dis appointed in the president yet havent yet decided to cast their votes for his Republican challenger. Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, Im an American. I ROMNEY continued on 8A Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney addresses the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Thursday.

August Strindberg ORLANDO A 13-year judicial veteran has been assigned to take over the second-degree murder case of a former neighborhood watch leader accused of fatally shooting a Florida teenager. Judge Debra S. Nelson was assigned George Zimmermans case Thursday, a day after an appeals court granted his attorneys request for Judge Kenneth Lester to disqualify himself. Attorney Mark OMara had asked the court ear lier this month to overturn Lesters decision not to leave the case. OMara con tended that the judge made disparaging remarks about Zimmermans character and advocated for additional charges against him in set ting his $1 million bond in July. Unions get setback in fight TALLAHASSEE A public employee union is mulling its options after a judge refused to reopen a lawsuit challenging Floridas plan to privatize prison health care. A spokesman for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, said on Thursday it not yet decided what to do. AFSME and the Florida Nurses Association had challenged a budget provi sion calling for the privatiza tion. The nursing group did not immediately return a call seeking comment. Circuit Judge Kevin Carroll refused the rule last month because the budget provision expired July 1. The Department of Corrections, meanwhile, is proceeding with the priva tization, contending it has other legal authority to out source health services. Man gets 180 days for stealing candy OCALA A north Florida judge has sentenced a 21-year-old homeless man to 180 days in jail for steal ing $2 worth of candy. Delvis Rodriguez-Ramos already on probation for theft pleaded guilty Wednesday to taking Twix and Snickers bars from an Ocala store. The Ocala Star-Banner reports an employee noticed the candy missing Saturday. Rodriguez-Ramos denied taking the candy, but returned to the store Monday and confessed. The employee asked him to come back Tuesday to talk about it. When RodriguezRamos showed up, the employee called police. Rodriguez-Ramos told the Star-Banner he had not eaten in a few days and was hungry. But the Marion County judge asked why RodriguezRamos didnt try to find a job or seek help from a homeless shelter. The judge also fined Rodriguez-Ramos $500. Court to reprimand Broward judge TALLAHASSEE A Broward County judge is facing a public reprimand in part for calling his wife to the witness stand and ques tioning her. The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the reprimand for Circuit Judge Dale C. Cohen but did not immediately set a date. The unanimous ruling cited Cohen for violating several judicial canons, including allowing family relationships to influence his judgment. Cohens wife, Mardi Levy Cohen, is now a Broward County judge, but she was an unsuccessful candidate when her husband had her testify in 2009. Delegation a long haul from GOP PALM HARBOR To hear the jokes, youd think the Florida delegation isnt even in Florida for the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Day after day, politicians and others have been crack ing one-liners about the hotel assignment the del egation drew after the state broke national party rules and held an early presiden tial primary. The delegates are about 30 miles north of the con vention hall, which is a long haul for the state just about everybody says is the key for Mitt Romney to win the presidency. And its been noted. When California Congressman Kevin McCarthy addressed the delegates at a breakfast this week at the Innisbrook Resort, he quipped, I know that youre committed otherwise you wouldnt go to another state to attend a convention in your own state. New judge assigned in Zimmerman case n Associated Press NEW YORK MTV gave the last call for Jersey Shore on Thursday, saying the rau cous reality show will con clude after its upcoming sixth season, which begins Oct. 4. The series, whose roots lay in a party house in Seaside Heights, N.J., has given rise to stars such as Nicole Snooki Polizzi and Mike The Situation Sorrentino, just two from a cast of characters who were over-tanned, over-loud and always pumped up. It popularized the terms guido and guidette and the mantra Gym, tan, laundry while trying the patience of local residents with its partyhearty antics. Spider-Man official settles suit NEW YORK Director Julie Taymor has reached a deal in New York to settle a lawsuit she brought over the Broadway production of Spider-Man. The settlement was disclosed in a document filed Thursday in fed eral court in Manhattan. Settlement terms were not immediately released. Taymor had said the current hit Broadway production, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, was based on the unlawful use of her copyrighted writ ten works. Taymor was fired last year and the musicals script was rewritten after the $75 million produc tion had trouble getting past previews. The musi cal has since become a success. The lawsuit had said damages would exceed $1 million. Taymor sued the pro ducers in November and they countersued. The producers say Taymors treatment was based on pre-existing Spider-Man comics and films. Godfather heirs clash with studio NEW YORK The lawyer for the late creator of The Godfather stories says the writers heirs no longer want Paramount Pictures to make movies based on books they com mission. Attorney Bertram Fields told a federal judge Thursday that Paramount broke a 1969 contract when it went to publishers of the newest Godfather book and claimed the fam ily did not have rights to publish it. The Family Corleone was published in May. Proceeds remain in an escrow account pending outcome of litiga tion. A Paramount lawyer said the company was only asserting its rights. The judge hearing the case did not immediately rule. Fields said Godfather creator Mario Puzo was insistent that he keep publishing rights to future books.

LAKE CITY REPORTER STATE FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUG. 31-SEPT. 1, 2012 3A 3A BRENDAN FARRINGTON AP Political Writer PALM HARBOR Congressman Connie Mack has been working the Republican National Convention in hopes of injecting energy into his campaign to unseat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, but he wont be mentioning the race Thursday in his biggest moment of the week. Mack will be among the speakers leading up to Mitt Romneys speech to close out the convention, a role thats a reward for campaigning with Romney well ahead of Floridas presidential primary. It pro vided Romney with a key win on his way to secur ing the nomination. Mack also backed Romney in his failed 2008 campaign. Building up to the highprofile speaking role, Mack spent the week doing interviews with local and national media and attend ing fundraisers and func tions ranging from a salsa dance party hosted by the American Conservative Union to a fundraiser he held featuring two of Romneys sons. It culminated in a short speech before Florida dele gates Thursday morning, in which he stressed that if he beats Nelson, it could allow Republicans to gain control of the Senate, a remark that brought cheers. I want to make sure that we understand the contrast there is in this race, Mack said. As he has done often while campaigning, Mack said there are big differenc es between him and Nelson. Mack portrayed Nelson as someone who votes for President Barack Obamas agenda nearly all the time, including the health care overhaul that Mack and other Republicans vow to repeal. He also said Nelson supports tax hikes while he wants to cut taxes. The Nelson campaign said Macks claims are false. By every credible mea sure, Bills rated as a mod erate or centrist. He sup ports the president when he agrees with him; and, he opposes him when he disagrees with him. Hes fought the White House over a number of issues, like, the response to the BP oil spill and having a robust manned space pro gram, Nelson spokesman Paul Kincaid said in an email, adding that Nelson isnt the tax hiker Mack says he is. He said Nelson has supported numerous tax cuts, including voting to extend the Bush-era tax breaks and to repeal the estate tax. Mack, though, was backed up by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who spoke immediately after Mack at the delega tion breakfast. You must defeat Bill Nelson, Gingrich said. The central issue in the Senate should be that the Bill Nelson who comes home isnt the Bill Nelson who votes. It is funda mentally dishonest for Bill Nelson to come home and pretend that hes any thing but a liberal because when hes in Washington he consistently votes with Obama. Rep. Mack working the GOP convention for support BY GARY FINEOUT and MELISSA NELSON-GABRIEL Associated Press PENSACOLA On the final morning of the Republican National Convention, Gov. Rick Scott was as far away from Tampa as he could get without leaving the state. Scott showed up in Pensacola, reassuring tourists that they shouldnt let Hurricane Isaac wash out their Labor Day weekend plans. It was windy and rainy, but Scott was telling visitors to come on down to the coast. We look forward to having full hotels again, Scott said. We want to make sure every one knows how nice it is here in Florida. This wasnt supposed to be how Scott spent his week. Instead the Republican National Convention was going to give Scott a chance to bask in the political limelight as the GOP governor of the home state which just happens to be the biggest swing state. Scott didnt have a primetime speak ing slot, but he was still sched uled to address delegates. It would have been the crowning moment for Scott who bucked the Republican establishment, spent millions of his own fortune and defeat ed their candidate en route to the governors mansion two years ago. Scott made one of his first forays into politics by spending money on ads criti cizing the federal health care overhaul pushed by President Barack Obama. But the intrusion of Isaac spoiled those plans and forced Republicans to scuttle the first day of the convention when Scott was scheduled to appear. And even though the storm caused only isolated damage in Florida, Scott stayed away from many of the activities taking place at the convention site and around Tampa. He only made it to the con vention floor once, joining the Florida delegation on the final night when GOP nominee Mitt Romney gave his acceptance speech. Instead during the week he visited other parts of the state impacted by Isaac like Palm Beach County. He spent time touting tourism in Key West and then Pensacola. So it was Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll not Scott who was given the spotlight when Florida delivered its 50 del egates to Mitt Romney. It was U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush getting interviewed time and again by national media about Mitt Romney and Republican poli tics. Scott did spend time with Florida Republicans on Monday but instead of firing up the del egates about the convention he was telling to them about the bands of Isaac skirting by the Tampa Bay area. Tampas Democratic Mayor Bob Buckhorn, who kept trum peting the convention as a way to spur future growth and busi ness for the region, praised Scotts decision to sidestep much of the convention. Scott and Buckhorn talked in the days leading up to the convention when it appeared that Isaac was going to pass closer to the Tampa Bay area. I think he did exactly what he should have been doing, Buckhorn said. Both he and I have said from Day One that public safety trumps politics. But while Scott may not have gotten as much national exposure for his politics, his decision to avoid much of the convention hoopla may help with Florida voters. Polls have shown that Scott has struggled to win over a majority of voters since becoming governor. Rep. Will Weatherford, the incoming Florida House speak er, said focusing on the storm was a better way for Scott to spend his time than yucking it up with other Republicans. I think its his finest week as governor, said Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel. Isaac kept Gov. Scott away from convention MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated Press TAMPA The three dozen chanting anti-GOP protesters hit a lull of silence as they marched through a low-income neighbor hood in west Tampa. What are you guys doing? Taking a nap? shouted one protester to his cohorts, exhorting them to yell. Another shouted, You guys are reeeeaaal quiet now! Quiet is the right word for pro tests at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week. They have been unexpectedly muted and even the protesters know it. Thousands of demonstra tors had been expected but only hundreds arrived, mostly Green Party supporters, Occupy Wall Street activists, anarchists and union stalwarts. Only two arrests have been linked to protests so far one man for carrying a machete, the other for wearing a bandanna in violation of a city ordinance. Thats compared to several hun dred in St. Paul, Minn., four years ago. Her streets have been so tranquil that Police Chief Jane Castor canceled news conferenc es because there was no trouble to report. Activists blame the threat of Hurricane Isaac, the overwhelm ing police presence, undercover law enforcement infiltration of their ranks and even the ghosttown nature of downtown during the convention week. Some activ ists worry they have no momen tum built for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., next week, and then the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street next month. Unless you have the num bers out on the street, you really cant change anything, said Nick Sabatella, 25, an Occupy Wall Street activist from New Jersey. The protesters were behind the eight ball even before the convention started. The threat of Hurricane Isaac stopped at least 16 busloads of activists from com ing to town because bus opera tors didnt want their equipment and drivers headed into possible danger. Downpours on Monday put a damper on a kickoff march that drew only several hundred protesters, not the 5,000 march ers that had been anticipated. And rain continued off and on throughout the week. Nobody came down because of this weather, said Jeff Smith, a 38-year-old construction worker from New York, who is part of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Smith also faulted the protest leaders and the tight security. They dont seem to be too organized down here, he said. Probably because there are cops on every corner. Groups of officers are stationed everywhere downtown. They are riding around in packs on bicy cles and are using helicopters for surveillance. While many activists praised the police for their restraint and politeness, they said the number of officers on the streets was overkill. Im really sad that every four years there is more of a militari zation of the police at these con ventions, said Cheri Honkala, the Green Partys vice presidential can didate. Its a waste of taxpayers dollars and it really scares me that someday there will be nobody left marching. The police presence isnt just in uniform. In Romneyville, a tent village of protesters about a mile from the convention, the residents are well aware that undercover officers have infiltrated their ranks and that they tend to be among the more aggressive activists. You know how if you go into Macys around the holidays and somebody tries to shoplift some thing, and you then realize there are actually no shoppers, that theyre all undercover police officers? Thats the case here, Honkala said. Without hard confirmation, they have let their suspected under cover officers stay. You cant get rid of people if you cant prove it on the spot, Honkala said. Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn said at a news conference Thursday that he had expected few arrests as the convention wraps up Thursday night. We have trained so hard and so long for this, Buckhorn said. When this is said and done, this will be the benchmark that every city should strive for. Castor said her strategy was to approach the protesters, ask what their goals are and then help them reach them. Often, protest ers simply wanted to pose in an intersection for the media. She let them if they didnt intend vio lence. Officers even took leftover food to Romneyville. Everyone was to be treated with dignity and respect, Castor said. The nature of downtown also made it harder for protesters to be heard. Few people live there and many businesses told their workers to stay away during the convention, leaving the streets nearly empty. We could protest until were blue in the face but there werent people normally around to see that, said Darrell Prince, a 35-yearold political fundraiser from New York who is part of Occupy Wall Street. Whether it was intelligent design or they were just fortunate, it worked out for the RNC. On Thursday, 16 protesters, watched by 35 officers, marched from Romneyville to Dominos Pizza to protest corporate-owned businesses. Despite the low num bers, protesters eked out some vic tories. Later Thursday, about 300 of them marched to the barricades outside the convention area, with a few dressed in tuxedos and pig snouts chanting Greed is good. As Paul Ryan was in the midst of a speech accepting the vice presi dential nomination Wednesday on the convention floor, he was disrupted by a pink banner and a yelling protester from the femi nist group Code Pink. She was escorted out as some in the crowd shouted U-S-A, U-S-A. Convention protests fizzle A few demonstrators sit on a Dominos Pizza parking lot in protest, Thursday in Tampa.

Keep our optionsclear ONE OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY Democratic convention will lack electricity of 4 years ago LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:Columbia County here is a comparison to ponder. Two years ago I pulled a large dog off the road. He had caused quite the traffic jam at a nor-mally quiet area. He had suffered terrible abuse and was in the final throes of heat exhaustion. Among the many cars a man slowed and said he had been standing there all day. It was now 5 p.m. His respiration so fast I couldnt count it. He sat on the side of the road. Chest compressions brought him around but his legs were like rubber. I couldnt get him in my truck. People slowed to gawk or make snide remarks and roar away. After pleading for help I finally got him in the back seat by the grace of the God and the promise of A/C. There are probably 50 people who will remember the huge white dog and the red pickup. Not one offered to help. He is healthy and happy today. Sunday night I had a very sick dog and headed for the Gainesville UF Animal ER in the dark and rain I couldnt find it. Finally I saw a young man walking his dog. I asked for help and he not only gave directions he jumped in his car and led the way! He stayed with me until the UF crew had my dog safely inside. Kind of makes you think about where we live.Judith CanavanLake City A comparison of communities Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

Barack Obama is the incumbent president and, facing no internal challenges or opposi-tion, the convention serves only to rubber stamp his nomination for a second term. The DNC organizers have had an uphill battle to whip up enthusiasm for the event among the party faith-ful, and many Democrats, facing tough electoral challengers, have sent their regrets. The second most popular Democrat, Hillary Clinton, will be half a world away in Russia and the Far East, missing a Democratic convention for the first time in her adult life. She argues, rightly, that as secretary of State she should refrain from partisan politics. There was a brief groundswell, promoted heavily by mischievous Republicans, that she and Vice President Joe Biden should swap jobs. The idea was quickly shot down, the whole point of it being, from the GOPs standpoint, to prove that Obama had made a mistake four years ago. The switch would, however, have added some excitement to a convention that is badly lack-ing it. But thats the last thing convention planners of either party want -uncontrolled, unscripted excitement. The Democratic speakers will feature the usual parade of party dignitaries, governors and mayors, one of whom, Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio, will give the keynote address. Former President Jimmy Carter will address the convention by video. The marquee speaker will be another former president, Bill Clinton, who will give the nominating speech for Obama. He is still one of the Democratic Partys best orators. The Democrats caught a couple of bad breaks, P.R.-wise. The Friday before the conven-tion in Charlotte there is to be a two-hour Muslim prayer festival, and that comes on the heels of a gay-pride festival. After the Democrats had settled on Charlotte, the state passed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Gay activists want to use the convention as a platform to agitate for repeal of that amend-ment -not what the party needs in a state whose 15 electoral votes Obama would like to get, as he did in 2008. Four years ago, Obama was a novelty, something genuinely new in American politics. His exotic background, winning manner and considerable speak-ing skills outweighed in the vot-ers minds his relatively short career in public office, which amounted to close to four years in the U.S. Senate and seven years in the Illinois senate. The Democrats will tout Obamas considerable foreign policy successes. The economy is another matter. While it is improving, the question is: will it improve enough by Election Day to benefit the incumbent. Meanwhile, the new novelty is Mitt Romney, a stiff, some-what awkward candidate with a good record as governor of Massachusetts, that he is at pains to hide, and a medical plan much like Obamas that he never mentions. The convention may be dull. The fall campaign most assur-edly will not. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

As with all the issues at stake in November, the difference between the Republican and Democratic hopefuls couldnt be more stark. President Obamas record is disturbingly clear. Not long after he made himself comfortable in the Oval Office, he yanked out the power cord on American-made energy, delivering a secondary blow to an economy already reeling from a global downturn. In contrast, GOP can-didate Mitt Romney has offered a strategy for reconnecting the supply, offering relief to strug-gling families and businesses from coast to coast. This jolt cant come soon enough. Outdated ideas are swept away by new knowledge. We now know the United States isnt running out of energy but is awash in it. The Congressional Research Service reported in 2011 that U.S. fossil-fuel reserves exceed those of Saudi Arabia, China and Canada combined. We possess enough oil at its current rate of consumption to replace petroleum from the Persian Gulf for 50 years, enough natural gas for 100 years and sufficient coal to last several centuries. Mr. Romneys energy platform is in tune with the 21st century. Outlining a comprehensive plan in a speech in New Mexicos oil and gas country two weeks ago, he said more drilling and less red tape would trigger an eco-nomic renaissance that could add 3 million new jobs. Economic renewal requires a leader who has the vision to shake off benighted beliefs of the past and plug into the nations bounty of energy resources. Its time for America to tank up and take off. W e are entitled to the clear-est possible choice because the time for choosing is drawing near, vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan told the Republican National Convention in Tampa in his hard-hitting acceptance speech Wednesday night. So here is our pledge: We will not duck the tough issues we will lead. Those are fine words; we have heard the sentiment before, including from the incumbent president. But if Mr. Ryan and Mitt Romney want credit for not ducking, and if they truly believe that voters are entitled to the clearest pos-sible choice, it would behoove the candidates to offer more details about what, precisely, voters are choosing. That, however, wasnt on Mr. Ryans agenda. Instead he offered a speech that was part introduction of himself and his small-town origins, part testi-monial to his running mate and in largest part a slashing and, in many elements, mis-leading indictment of President Obama as both a spent force and a threat to American freedom. Mr. Romney and Mr. Obama have starkly dif-ferent visions about the role of government, but to carica-ture the presidents vision as a government-planned life, where everything is free but us insults voters who surely know better. Emblematic of the liberties Mr. Ryan took was his depiction of the hometown auto plant whose shuttering he implicitly blamed on Mr. Obama even though the plant closed before the presi-dent was inaugurated. A convention speech is not a budget submission, even when, as with Mr. Ryan, it comes from the chairman of the House Budget Committee. But a party that claims to be willing to make hard choices ought to be prepared to spell some of them out. Mr. Ryan offered only the bare assertion that federal spending of 20 percent of the gross domestic product is enough despite the aging of the population and Mr. Romneys vow to keep defense spending alone at 4 percent. Mr. Ryan has been an intellectual leader of his party on fiscal issues, and Mr. Romneys decision to add him to the Republican ticket represented an opportunity to focus the debate on this urgent matter, before, as Mr. Ryan said Wednesday, the math and the momentum overwhelm us all. Mr. Ryan skewered the presi-dent in his speech for creating and then walking away from a bipartisan debt commission that, he said, came back with an urgent report. Mr. Ryans selection prompted a serious discussion of Medicare reform but also ushered in a depressingly pre-dictable series of Mediscare charges and counter-charges. Mr. Ryan stooped to some of that Wednesday night, assert-ing that the greatest threat to Medicare is Obamacare, although the health care law began the hard task of reform-ing the program. Mr. Ryan described Mr. Romney as a man prepared to meet serious challenges in a serious way, without excuses and idle words. Mr. Romneys appearance before the con-vention Thursday night is an opportunity to demonstrate that seriousness matching rhetoric with substance appro-priate to the magnitude of the task the next president will face.

W hat reasons would you give for why you go to church? Would it be because you want to get something out of the service? Would it be that you want to give something to the people that assemble with you? Or, could it be both? After giving some reasons why Jewish-born Christians should not give up their com mitment to serve Jesus, the Hebrew writer concludes by giving several reasons why they should not forsake the assembling together with the saints. One of the reasons why we should go to church every opportunity we have is so that as a group we can express our thanks to Jesus for what He did to make it possible for the church to exist. Without the sacrifice of Jesus we would not have had our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water (Hebrews 10:22). Without the things which Jesus did, and our doing the things He commanded us to do, we would still have an evil conscience. In express ing this thank you to Jesus we will get a great feeling within ourselves. Coming together at a time of worship gives us an opportuni ty to stimulate one another to love and good deeds (10:24). To stimulate one another will take some preparation before we get to the building. We will need to have some time to think about what we can do individually for someone there to rouse them to keep up the Christian walk. This is a great challenge to all of us because we have to be considering what other people need, but in so doing, we will get a great deal of satisfaction from seeing other people growing stronger. When we come together for a worship service it should be a time for us to encourage fel low members to be faithful to the Lord. Sometimes we need to tell someone how much we appreciate the life that they live. Even though we have gotten a lot of encouragement from their life, they will be encouraged, if we tell them about the example they are setting. One of the reasons why peo ple say that they do not want to go to church is because they do not get anything out of it. We must get something out of it if we are going to continue to go. However, there is just so much that can be given so that we can get. If we consider this passage there are only a few things that one can get from a worship service. Someone can stimu late us to love and good deeds and they can encour age us, but how many people can reach us in the short time that we spend at the building? One or two, maybe three? But if we go to church to give something, then what can we give and to how many people? Our congregational singing will encourage a lot of people. Our joint effort in praying to God will make an impact upon God because of all the righteous [men] who will be beseeching God. When we place our weekly contribution into the basket we may be part of financing the preach ing of the gospel in a region where, through the efforts of one man, many will be saved. But what about that preach ing thing? How can I give if I am just sitting on the pew? There are several ways. Your nodding in affirmation, not because you are going to sleep, is a great encouragement to the speaker. The discussions that you have with someone who lacked understanding of where the preacher was com ing from will not only help him, but it will help them. Think of how many people people the preacher does not even know that you can talk to about the sermon and share it with them. Should we get something out of going to church? Absolutely! The greatest thing we will get is the sense of accomplishment we will get because we gave to others. Dont you want to go to church so that you can give and get? n Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City, Florida area. All Scriptural quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, Holman Bible Publishers, unless otherwise stated. T he surest thing in all the world is the com ing again of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is surer than death; for the Bible teaches us that a generation of the saved will never see death when the Lord comes in the clouds for His church (Rapture). I Corinthians 15:51-52: Behold, I tell you a mys tery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changedin a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. I Thessalonians 4:16-17: For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Yes, we can be absolutely certain that the Lord will come again and receive His church unto Himself. It is surer than the sunrise, although the sun has never failed to rise. But there is coming a day after Christ has returned for His church that the sun will fail to shine. Matthew 26:29-30: Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Today many confuse the Rapture with the Second Coming of Jesus back to earth. There is no question about His second coming back to earth. In fact as Christ ascended into heaven in Acts Chapter one, the very first message He sent back was: (V.11b) This same Jesus who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven. The Bible tells us we need to watch for He will return as a thief to take His church away. We are told in the Parable of the Ten Virgins (recorded in Matthew 15:1-13) that we should make ourselves ready, for the Bridegroom is coming. Five were ready; five were not. For the five that were not, it was forever too late. There is a movie series called The Thief in the Night. It has 3 parts. Every Christian should see the movies and then share them with their lost loved one and friends. Every church should show this series. It shows the Rapture of the church and tells of those who were left behind; how no matter what happens, they could not be saved. (See II Thessalonians chap ter 2.) The movie is fiction; but the prophesy in it is not. Today, in my estimation, it is only Gods mercy that holds the Rapture back. He wants so for all to be saved. Hear His voice calling today! Accept Him today!

A lesson learned way too late in life. Cant teach an old dog new tricks or so I was told, but I have come to believe thats just not so, unless the old dog just doesnt want to learn. The story is told of a man from the city who went into a coun-try store. Browsing around for the snacks, he saw a big, wrinkly, long eared, blood hound lying in the cor-ner. As he walked about the store, he heard the dog whinning. He went to the counter and spoke to the owner of the store and the dog, and asked him why the dog continued to whine. Well, the old man began, that dog is laying on boards where some nails are sticking through. The customer asked him, Well why doesnt he move?! The owner pushed his glasses back on his nose, and looked at him and said, Well sonny, I guess that old dog just dont hurt enough to move. Thats the way many are today. They used to say, stubborn people are just sot in their ways. Couldnt change em if you tried. Gets frustrating doesnt it, trying to change peo-ple. Yet when a couple gets married, many times, they see some bad traits in them, but they figure, Hell change when we are married. How often does that happen?! Jesus was indeed in the people chang-ing business. He had his hands full with the disciples. Matthew the greedy tax collector, James and John the hot tempered broth-ers, Peter now he was a case! Peter was a fisherman, like Andrew his brother, and James and John. He had a temper, and who would ever have thought that he of all people would one day stand up on Pentecost and boldly preach the gospel? If you were to ask Peter at the time he started following Jesus he would laugh at you. Me?! Im no preacher! Who would ever think that a man like Peter could ever change. Yet between the time he started following Jesus, till the time he stood on Pentecost and preached he had changed. We would probably given up on Peter long before Pentecost. Maybe we would have said, Peter, You are a lost cause! Youre fired! You are not worth it. Jesus saw more in Peter than he saw in himself. Peter was indeed special, because even though it took some time, and some hard lessons, he had found a reason for living. His reason became his motiva-tion for change which lead to the adventure of living for Jesus. The change was dramatic, and eternal He had said I dont know him John 18:15-18, but he changed (John 21:15-20) to THEN PETER STOOD UP with the eleven, raised his voice, and addressed the crowd From denying Jesus by a fire, to standing before thousands to proclaim Jesus. Old dogs can learn new tricks, if they want to. I n this politically charged season, much is said, many prom-ises made, and insinu-ations are flying. Telling the truth seems to be little more than a well-worn phrase in a speech. On the other hand, decep-tion is used as a means to an end and often not taken seriously as a sin. However, according to the Bible, deception is incred-ibly dangerous. Proverbs 26:19 addresses this prob-lem: Like a madman shooting deadly arrows is a man who deceives his neighbor and says, I was only joking! The Message Bible gives us a contemporary look at this same verse: People who shrug off deliberate decep-tions say, I didnt mean it, I was only joking, are worse than careless camp-ers who walk away from smoldering campfires. In the political world, the status quo is to simply blame someone else for the resulting forest fire. The point made is that decep-tion causes everyone to get burned! The definition for deceive is to lie; to cause others to accept that which is false as true or valid, while deceitful implies the intent to mislead by a false appearance or double-dealing. Leading others to believe you are something youre not, or that you will do something you have no intention of doing qualifies as deceit. It is very interesting that the original Greek word for deceit actually means, trap. In this context, have you ever felt as though you were trapped by someone elses lie? Left holding the bag by some-one you thought you could trust? Or maybe you were the one laying the trap to protect yourself or just to get what you wanted. The problem is that while prac-ticing deceit may get you off the hot seat immedi-ately, or let you have your way, Psalm 7:15 warns us that He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made. The Bible records several instances of deceivers being caught up in a trap of deception. The 27th chapter of Genesis tells one such story of Jacob deceiving his father, by pretending to be his older brother in order to gain the firstborns portion of inher-itance and it worked. He must have felt quite clever. Fast-forward to chapter 29, and we find the shoe on the other foot. Jacobs future father-in-law deceived him into working seven years for his daughters hand only to find after the ceremony that it was the wrong woman wearing that wedding dress! Jacob now knew what it felt like to be on the receiving end of deception he fell into that pit he scooped out with his own hands! Practicing deception is wrong because it contra-dicts the very nature of God. God is truth. By its own definition, deceit lays a trap, but the Bible tells us that the truth will set us free. (John 8:32) Not only are we called to speak the truth, we are also called to be strong enough to hear it. Lets require honesty from those we elect to any office, and not fall into the trap of desiring easy answers to difficult prob-lems because our hearts matter!

By JOHN SEEWERAssociated PressCLEVELAND A hair-cutting attack on an Amish bishop left him so ashamed that he stopped preaching and refused to attend a family wedding because he didnt want anyone to see him without his beard, his son testified Wednesday at the trial of 16 Amish men and women accused of carrying out a series of hate crimes on church leaders in Ohio. In the minutes after the surprise encounter last fall, Andy Hershberger said he looked toward his 77-year-old father. Gray clumps of hair from the beard his father had grown since marriage covered the floor where he sat. He was shaking all over, Hershberger said. He was crying and crying. Federal prosecutors say that a dispute between the leader of a breakaway Amish group and other bishops who sought to overrule his authoritarian methods led to the hairand -beard cutting attacks that struck fear into Ohios normally peaceful Amish community. Those accused of planning and taking part in the attacks targeted the hair and beards of Amish bishops because of its spiritual significance in the faith, prosecu-tors said. Most Amish men do not shave their beards after marriage, believing it signifies their devotion to God. Prosecutors say there were five different attacks last fall, orchestrated by Sam Mullet Sr., who two decades ago, established an Amish settlement outside the tiny town of Bergholz near the West Virginia panhandle. All of the defen-dants, who live in the settlement, could face lengthy prison terms if convicted on charges that include conspiracy and obstructing justice. Mullet has denied ordering the hair-cutting but said he didnt stop anyone from carrying it out. Attorneys for the defendants have not denied that the hair cuttings took place and said in the opening statements that members of the breakaway group took action out of compassion and concern that some Amish were straying from their beliefs. Defense attorneys also contended that the Amish are bound by different rules guided by their religion and that the government shouldnt get involved in what amounted to a family or church dispute. Mullets sister, Barbara Miller, testified Wednesday that six of her children and their spouses showed up at her home in northeast Ohio last September. Their relationship had been strained since she and husband, Marty, left the Mullet set-tlement four years earlier. But she was thrilled to see her son, Lester, at the door, she said. I wanted to hug him, she said. But her boys pushed past and soon surrounded their father, holding shears and clippers, she testified. Lester reached out, grabbed Marty by his beard so hard it distorted his face, Miller said The group took off their fathers hair and the women chopped off Barbara Millers waist-length hair, she said. Before leaving, they stuffed the hair in a paper bag, she said. I started praying forgive them God, she said, adding that one son screamed: God is not with you. Her childrens defense attorneys said in opening statements a day earlier that the Millers children acted out because they had been mistreated by their father while growing up. The attorneys likened what happened to a family feud. Barbara Miller denied that her father mistreated any of his children. The attack on Raymond Hershberger took place at his farm in Holmes County, said his son who lives on the same land. The county is home to one of the nations largest Amish settlements. Andy Hershberger testified that five men arrived at his house on an October evening and said, We want to talk with you and your dad. Once inside, one of the defendants, whom he identified as Johnny Mullet son of accused ring-leader Sam Mullet Sr. stood up and said: Were from Bergholz. Were here to do what you did to our people. Hersherger described a chaotic scene, with the men holding down him, his father and his brother. He said his father covered his head, pleading Dont shear me, dont shear me. I saw the hair fly, Andy Hershberger said. Prosecutors showed jurors a photo of a man, identified by Hershberger as Johnny Mullet, standing over his father and holding him near his throat during the attack. Another suspect had taken the pictures with a disposable camera, inves-tigators said. A group of Amish women watching the trial, including relatives of the Hershbergers, hid their faces with shak-ing hands and turned away from the photos. Hershberger said clumps of hair were missing from his fathers head and his scalp was bleeding a bit. Only an inch of his beard, which had hung to the middle of his chest, was left. He didnt preach again until his hair grew back. He was so ashamed with the way he looked, his son said. He was heartbro-ken. Hershberger said the attackers grabbed him by the beard too and tried to shave it. But the clippers stopped working, he said, and the men left. Ohio man says hair cutting shamed his Amish father Members of the Amish leave the U.S. Federal Courthouse Tue sday in Cleveland. A breakaway religious group spent months planning hair-cutting attacks against followers of their Amish faith, U.S. prosecutors said Tuesday as they laid ou t their case against 16 people charged with hate crimes. Such hair-cuttings are conside red deeply offensive in the traditional Amish culture. ASSOCIATED PRESS
8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & NATION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUG. 31-SEPT. 1, 2012 8A This has been really interesting and weve learned a lot, he said, noting that troopers Richard Gill and Leon Gill both worked at the 1972 RNC in Miami. estimated the LCFD raised $5,000 during last years collection drive. More than 15 LCFD fire fighters will participate in the fundraising drive. Its important to take part in this just to help the kids, Beauchamp said. Most of our money goes to their summer camp. Ive talked to a bunch of MDA kids and they really enjoy going to the camps and they get a lot out of intermin gling with other kids that have the same disease. It means a lot to them and its very rewarding from us all firefight ers across the country to chip-in for one good cause. Funds raised by fire fighters give MDA, a voluntary health agency, the means to continue providing direct services, research, professional and public health education to children and adults with neuromuscular diseases in Northeast Florida and Southest, Georgia. The annual MDA sum mer camp is also funded by firefighters. Without people donat ing the money, the chil dren cant go, Beauchamp said. We give our time and expect people to give a little bit of money. Any little bit helps. FHP: Provides support for RNC Continued From Page 1A BOOT: Firefighters fundraiser Continued From Page 1A make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better! My country deserves better! More than the political hoopla, the evening marked one of a very few opportunities any presidential challeng er is granted to appeal to millions of voters in a single night. The two-month campaign to come includes other big moments prin cipally a series of one-on-one debates with Democrat Obama in a race for the White House that has been close for months. In excess of $500 million has been spent on campaign television commercials so far, almost all of it in the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. Romney holds a fundraising advan tage over Obama, and his high com mand hopes to expand the electoral map soon if post-convention polls in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and perhaps elsewhere indicate its worth the investment.In a speech that blended the political and the personal, Romney talked in his excerpts of the importance of the love he felt from his parents and that he and his wife Ann have sought to give their children and grandchildren. All the laws and legislation in the world will never heal this world like the loving hearts and arms of mothers and fathers, he said. The economy is issue No. 1 in the race for the White House, and Romney presented his credentials as the man better equipped than the president to help create jobs. When I was 37, I helped start a small company, he said. That business we stated with 10 people has now grown into a great American success story. Romneys aides scripted a closing night convention night program that included a video tribute to Ronald Reagan, the two-term president revered still by conservatives. Delegates cheered when his voice filled the hall. It was designed, as well to fill out a portrait of the GOP nominee as a suc cessful businessman, last-minute savior for a troubled 2002 Olympics and a man of family and faith. A portion of the con vention podium was rebuilt overnight so he would appear surrounded by delegates rather than speaking from a distance, an attempt to soften his image as a stiff and distant candidate. Romney knows the value of dollar, delegates were assured. When I told him about Staples, he really got excited at the idea of saving a few cents on paper clips, business man Tom Stemberg said of the office supply store chain he founded with backing from Bain Capital, the private equity firm the presidential nominee co-founded. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, sharing the stage with his wife, Callista, said Obama was a presi dent in the Jimmy Carter mold. Both took our nation down a path that in four years weakened Americas confi dence in itself and our hope for a better future, he said. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said that in the fourth year of a presidency, a real leader would accept responsibili ty for failed policies. President Obama hasnt done that. Romneys aides did not say whether he would offer any new information on what has so far been a short-on-details pledge to reduce federal deficits and create 12 million jobs in a country where unemployment stands at 8.3 per cent. Romney has called for extension of tax cuts due to expire at all income levels at the end of the year, and has proposed an additional 20 percent cut in tax rates across the board. But he has yet to sketch out the retrenchment in tax breaks that he promises to prevent deficits from rising. Nor has he been forthcoming about the trillions in spending cuts that would be needed to redeem his pledge of major deficit reduction, or about his promise to rein in Medicare or other government benefit programs before they go broke. His vice presidential running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the chair man of the House Budget Committee, has called for remaking Medicare into a program in which the government would send seniors checks to be used to purchase health care insurance. Under the current approach, ben eficiaries pay premiums to the govern ment, which then pays a part of all of their medical bills, and Democrats say the GOP alternative would expose seniors to ever-rising out-of-pocket costs. Romney said in his fundraising email, as he often does in his speeches, We believe in America, even though President Barack Obamas failed poli cies have left us with record high unem ployment, lower take-home pay and the weakest economy since the great Depression. Obamas surrogates missed no oppor tunity to criticize Romney, the conven tion proceedings or Ryans own accep tance speech. He lied about Medicare. He lied about the Recovery Act, Obamas cam paign manager, Jim Messina, emailed Democratic donors in a plea for cash. He lied about the deficit and debt. He even dishonestly attacked Barack Obama for the closing of a GM plant in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin a plant that closed in December 2008 under George W. Bush. For Romney, 65 and the first Mormon to become a major party presidential nominee, the evening sealed a triumph more than five years in the making. He ran unsuccessfully for the nomination in 2008 after a single term as a moder ate Republican governor of a liberal Democratic state. This year, as then, he was assailed as a convert to conservatism, and a ques tionable one at that, as Gingrich, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and other rivals battled him for the nomina tion. With a superior organization and an outside group that spent millions criticizing his foes, Romney eventu ally emerged as the nominee in early spring. His selection of Ryan, a young law maker admired by fellow conservatives for his understanding of the federal budget, reinforced Romneys appeal to the right. The economy alone makes the race a close one, and polling makes clear that Romney enters the fall campaign with strengths and weaknesses. In the most recent Associated PressGfK poll, conducted Aug. 16-20, some 48 percent of registered voters said Romney would do a better job han dling the economy, while 44 percent chose Obama. The Republican was also favored narrowly on job creation and held a 10-point advantage on the issue of reducing federal budget deficits. Polls also show Romney trails Obama among female voters and Hispanics, and the convention was scripted from begin ning to end to try and cut into the GOP tickets disadvantages in those areas. The first night of the GOP conven tion drew an estimated 22.3 million TV viewers, the vast majority over 55. The Nielsen ratings company said that figure was down from the 23.1 million who watched the first full night of the 2008 convention, which nominated John McCain. Nielsen said just 1.5 million of those who watched Tuesdays con vention session were in the 18-34 age group. ___ Associated Press writers Kasie Hunt, Steve Peoples, Philip Elliott, Beth Fouhy, Thomas Beaumont and Julie Mazziotta in Tampa and Jennifer Agiesta in Washington contributed to this story.

The Indians will honor Hunters contribution to the football program at 7 p.m. today. Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson will dedicate the football fieldhouse to his former coach. Jackson also was an assistant under Hunter before taking over as head coach. In addition to the dedication, Hunter will receive a personalized Indians jersey. Hunter is a Columbia High graduate, where he played football and earned a scholarship to Florida State. Injuries plagued him in college. Hunter did continue his love of football and looked to become a coach after graduation and a return to Lake City. Coach Bobby Simmons hired Hunter on his CHS staff and his former player spent seven years as an assistant. All the while, Hunter was teaching at Fort White School, which went through the eighth grade. Hunter coached girls and boys basketball. The Fort White community began a push for a middle school football program and made it happen. Principal Richard Romine asked Hunter to coach the team and the Indians first took the field in 1983. Games were played at a field built behind the school. Hunter continued to coach basketball and had the athletic director duties. In that capacity, Hunter was instrumental in the formation of the Suwannee Middle School Athletic Conference with nearby schools. SMAC championships are determined to this day. The original Fort White High School was closed in 1970, as past of Columbia Countys plan to end segregation in the school system. Fort White always expected to get its high school back, but it didnt happen until 2000. Hunter was named the first head coach at the new Fort White High. The program opened with a bang, winning its first three games, and finished the year at 6-4. There were some lean times in Hunters seven years, but he did post 7-3 and 8-2 regular seasons. Fort White made its first trip to the state playoffs in 2003. A lot of players were given shelter under that big straw hat Hunter wore at practice.Season starts with big matchup By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWhile Columbia High certainly looked convincing in a 34-0 win against Santa Fe High in the kickoff clas-sic, head coach Brian Allen will be certain to tell you that the Tigers have a lot more in the playbook. While the Tigers served up their vanilla looks against the Raiders, this week Columbia will have an array of different flavors ready for Baker County High when the Wildcats visit Tigers Stadium at 7:30 p.m. tonight. The biggest difference for the gameplan this week is that the Tigers have a plan in place to attack the Wildcats, while last week the Tigers were just run-ning basic plays. Without giving too much away, weve identified some weaknesses that we think we can take advantage of, Allen said. Were making some tweaks to what we did and well open things up a little more. Last week, we probably only showed two blitzes the entire game. That doesnt mean fans should expect a great amount of trickery from the Tigers tonight. Were not going to try to do anything fancy, Allen said. Were just going to find some things that we think will work and present some matchups. Allen noted that the Wildcats arent big up front and thinks the Tigers defen-sive front could have an advantageous matchup. I think we have one of the quickest defensive ends in the state in Javere Smith, Allen said. Were going to try to use him in some packages to expose some things. Unfortunately we wont have Tyrone Sands available. Sands will miss this game with an undisclosed injury, but Allen said he should be back in a couple of weeks. Columbia looks to set tone for season tonight. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Lonnie Underwood drags a Santa Fe Hig h defender in the kickoff classic. CHS continued on 4B

Hamilton County High, which resides in District 5-1A, visits Arrowhead Stadium for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. The teams have met nine times with Fort white hold-ing a 6-3 edge. The Trojans are coached by Mike Pittman, and last made the playoffs in 2010. Hamilton County was 2-8 last year, including a 21-6 home loss to Fort White. In that game, Fort White quarterback Andrew Baker had touchdown passes of 39 and 41 yards. Hamilton is real young, Indians head coach Demetric Jackson said. They have fast guys in skill positions. Up front is where they are kind of weak, but they have enough speed to cause you problems. You never know what Coach Pittman has up his sleeve. After Fort Whites solid performance against Suwannee in the kickoff class, Jackson said he is looking to continue the effort. Our philosophy is still the same teach our guys to be competitive, Jackson said. If we keep our mind-set and practice to compete against each other, the game will take care of itself. Our approach this week has been to shore up fundamen-tals and stress to them to compete every play. At 7 p.m. before the game, Fort White will dedi-cate its fieldhouse to coach and educator Mike Hunter. After starting the middle school program at Fort White and serving as its head coach, Hunter took over the varsity when the school opened in 2000 and coached for seven years. Hunter retired from teaching last year. Coach Hunter is being honored for all his years of service, not just to the high school but to the Fort White community, Jackson said. Jackson noted there is one thing that would spoil the celebration a poor performance by the foot-ball team. Our part is to play the game and we have to do our part to make it a great night, Jackson said.

Lady Tigers golf improves to 1-1 By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAfter starting the season on a sour note, Columbia Highs Lady Tigers bounced back on the links with a 164-224 victory against Santa Fe High at West End Country Club in Gainesville. Gillian Norris finished as medalist in the match with 41 to lead three Lady Tigers who broke 50 on the day. Ashley Mixon carded a 45 and Allie Kranke fin-ished with a 46. Rounding out the topfour scores for the Lady Tigers was Brooke Russell with a 52. Were still improving, but better scores will come, Columbia head coach Todd Carter said. The Lady Tigers improved to 1-1 on the sea-son with the victory. Columbia will tee it up again at 4 p.m. on Tuesday against Oak Hall at Gainesville Country Club.Lady Indians volleyballFort White High attacked hard, but Keystone Heights came away with a three-set victory against the Lady Indians on Thursday in Keystone. Keystone Heights finished off the Lady Indians with 25-18, 25-21 and 30-28 victories on its home court. Lync Stalnaker was one of the bright spots for Fort White as she finished with nine kills and 38 attacks in the contest. I felt that Lync contributed greatly for us tonight moving the ball all over the court, Fort White head coach Tiffany Bratcher said. Ashley Cason finished with 39 assists in the con-test and Halie Stringfellow was right on her heels with 37 assists. The Lady Indians fell to 1-2 on the season with the loss, but have a chance to rebound with two games next week. Fort White begins the week on the road against Newberry High at 6 p.m. on Tuesday and rounds out the week against Interlachen High at 6 p.m. on Thursday.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUG. 31-SEPT. 1, 2012 3B%6SRUWVRuffo skunks traditional workouts By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt may not be your traditional workout method, but theres no doubt that Zach Ruffo has tapped into something special with a unique set of talents. Ruffo, who many people know as the Speed Bag Skunk, has a training facility set up near Florida Gateway College where hes giving a new type of training to aspiring athletes. While most people may focus on bench pressing and pushups, Ruffo has found a new way to use his body weight to carve out his core. The workout, which looks mildly similar to what youd see in a gymnastics meet uses a combination of bars executing pull-ups, pushups and other exercises to train. I was looking for a new outlet to workout, Ruffo said. I started searching online and this is what I came across. For Ruffo, its all about the work a person puts in and they have to be passionate about the training. Were hardcore, he said. Even when the first hurricane came through, we were out here doing this stuff in the rain. They know that they have to put in the work and have the motivation if they want to do something. You have to be in the gym 24/7. The creation of his gym cost Ruffo nearly $2,000 to build, but its something that I well worth it to the Skunk. Will I ever get my money back out of it, maybe not, but Im doing everything I can to self promote it, Ruffo said. Its makes you feel good when you see kids at the jungle gym doing planks. So many people dont want to go to the gym, but this gives them something else to do. His training group, known as I Muscle Up after the workout move muscle ups trains five days a week and it shows when Ruffo does his routine. When I first saw it, I was like, holy crap, he said. I got into it, and I was hooked. Ive seen a dramatic change and other people do as well. When a lot of people start, they cant even do a pull-up, so we start with negatives. But I tell them, why am I any better than you? What makes the change? The workouts have been a life-long process for Ruffo who was signed by Everlast four years ago to promote his speed-bag work. On Thursday, Ruffo will fly out to Oakland, Calif. where he will be a part of a HBO special training camp for the WBC Light Heavyweight Title fight between champion Chad Dawson and challenger Andre Ward. They usually dont give me the details and I just show up and do my thing on the speed bag for a couple of hours, Ruffo said. The gig isnt bad as he has all of his expenses paid plus a $500 check for each day hes out there. His skills on the speed bag are nationally known and have taken him all over the country as well as to Russia and Austrailia. A lot of times they have me to draw interest to their product, Ruffo said. Im usually walking around like the out of towner. This will be Ruffos biggest promotion since a church gathering in St. Louis where more than three thousand people witnessed him do a speed routine. They had a song dedicated to me, he said. I came out to Joy to the World and there were 3,000 people cheering in the background. I had my headphones in so that I could stay on beat, but I could still hear them cheering in the background. This was a half-million dollar production, so it was a little intimidating. But Ruffo had nothing to fear, he is the skunk after all. Its funny how I got my name, he said. Back in the day I was working out at M&M Fitness and an old man came up to me and said youre really skunking that bag. I turned and told him thats because Im the Speed Bag Skunk. Little did I know that name would stick six years later. Ruffo is hoping that his training technique will catch on and welcomes new faces to come try his unorthodox techniques. For those interested in training with Ruffo he may be contacted at speedbag firstname.lastname@example.org or at (386) 867-0739.

Allen also felt that given Baker County runs a spread offense that generally has four receivers out wide, the Tigers should have good opportunities to blitz. There going to do a ton of that (play out of the spread), Allen said. They do have some one-back stuff that theyre good with. Well have a ton of move-ment up front and theyll have to be disciplined. Defensively, Allen saw a bit of the Tigers in the Wildcats. Their defense kind of mimicks what we do a little bit, Allen said. They will give us a bit of a 3-4 look, but they do some things that are unsound. Sitting in the offensive meeting, myself and coach (Dennis) Dotson saw a couple of things that we might can take advantage of. Well be prepared to try to expose a couple of things. Allen specifically pointed to the running game between the tackles as something the Tigers will look to exploit. Theres the run game inside, but we also want to pass it into different pock-ets of their zone, Allen said. Theyll give us some Cover 2, Cover 3 and Cover 4 looks. What they have to take care of is having guys accounted for when they bring the blitz. And expect the Tigers to open things up a little more this week. We probably got into 30 percent of our playbook, Allen said. This week, well probably show close to 70 percent. The Tigers are going into the game with much more focus than they had at this time last year according to Allen. Were acting mature and totally focused, Allen said. I want them pictur-ing the game five times in their head as we go through our yoga session. I want them visualizing what kind of blitz pickups theyll have. What is their coverage responsibility? What kind of looks will we see? We have a mature group of seniors and theyre utilizing it to their benefit. One senior that has bounced back after being in the coachs doghouse ear-lier this summer is Nate Ayers, who caught two touchdown passes in last weeks classic. Hes worked his way out of the doghouse, but he did that with the way hes worked since I got on him, Allen said. I expect big things out of him, but thats not based on just his performance last week. And Allen is also hoping the 12th man continues to play an impact. One thing is we had great community support, he said. I am extremely happy with the support we have received. Everywhere I go and speak people tell me theyre ready to strap the pads on. Thats a great feeling as a head coach. Were hope-fully bringing back people that havent been to games since they were played at Memorial Stadium. CHS: Tigers host Baker Co. tonight Continued From Page 1BFlorida draws motivation from embarrassing yearBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Those painful memories of last season, haunting images of a 7-6 season, are still vivid at Florida. Coach Will Muschamp wants it that way. The 23rd-ranked Gators would like nothing more than to purge most of what happened in 2011: four con-secutive losses in October, a horrible showing against Furman and a bitter defeat to archrival Florida State. But they cant. And Muschamp wont let them. Youll always remember it, tight end/fullback Trey Burton said. Even when Im 40, Ill still remember my sophomore year at the University of Florida. Youve always got to keep that in the back of your mind and strive for it to not happen again. ... Last year was pretty embarrassing. The Gators ended Muschamps first season with a victory against Ohio State in the Gator Bowl, providing some solace while avoiding the pro-grams first losing season since 1979. Players and coaches talked about the importance of ending on a high note, about needing something positive to build on during the offseason. Maybe so, but all those losses ended up being the driving force during swel-tering practices, lengthy meetings and grueling weightlifting sessions. You never put the last season behind you, Muschamp said. Youve got to learn from it, move forward and let it motivate you. Thats what weve done as a staff and as a team. Im really pleased with where the football team is at this time. Muschamp will be happier if Florida gets 2012 off to a strong start Saturday against Bowling Green. But the Gators realize that early season success means little. They started 4-0 last season they didnt allow a touchdown in the first two games before things turned. Following lopsided losses to Alabama and LSU, Florida dropped close games against Auburn and Georgia. They managed a combined 11 points in the second half of all four October games and didnt score a single point in any of those fourth quarters. Things reached a low point in November against Furman, a team from the Football Championship Subdivision. Florida trailed 22-7 in the first quarter and didnt put the Paladins away until the defense returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the final 13 minutes of the game. A week later, the Gators allowed the Seminoles to gain just 95 yards but lost 21-7 because of costly turnovers and more inept offense. It capped a mind-boggling slide consider-ing Florida won national titles in 2006 and 2008, and played for the Southeastern Conference championship in 2009. Thats definitely not what we came here for, last year, 7-6, receiver Frankie Hammond said. We want to get back on top. We came here to win. Thats the bottom line. Thats what we came here to do: win, win championships, get rings. Thats the stan-dard at this university. We definitely have a chip on our shoulder. We definite-ly want to get those wins under our belt. Muschamp called his team soft after the loss to Florida State, an adjective that still resonates with players nine months later. We took that personally as a team, right tackle Chaz Green said. The Gators believe they will be considerably better in all phases during Year 2 of the Muschamp era. Muschamp revamped the teams weightlifting program by moving to an Olympic-style program designed to increase mus-cle strength, explosive-ness and cardiovascular fitness. He hired former Boise State offensive coor-dinator Brent Pease to replace Charlie Weis, and Pease installed a scheme that includes motions and shifts, and maybe a few more trick plays. The results wont truly be known for several weeks, maybe even longer. How the players remember the season might be an even better indicator. I think the year we had, there wasnt much that need-ed to be said, Green said. We came in, everybody was hungry, everybody knew what we had to do. It wasnt about talking, about pointing fingers. Everybody knew we didnt have a good year. We need to work to get back to where we can be, where we should be. Gamecocks survive Vandy scare to start college football seasonBy TERESA M. WALKERAssociated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. Marcus Lattimore ran for two touchdowns and 110 yards, and Connor Shaw ran for 92 yards while play-ing the second half with an injured shoulder as No. 9 South Carolina ral-lied for a 17-13 victory against Vanderbilt to open the season Thursday night. Shaw hurt his right, throwing shoulder late in the first half and missed the first two series of the third quarter before returning. The junior drove the Gamecocks for the go-ahead touchdown and ran 12 yards to the Vandy 1 before rolling in pain in the end zone. Lattimore scored the goahead TD on a 1-yard run with 11:25 to go. The Commodores turned it over on downs with 1:47 to go when Jordan Matthews couldnt handle fourth-down pass from Jordan Rodgers. Gamecocks defensive back D.J. Swearinger appeared to grab Matthews arm before the ball arrived.

R (:05) Weeds (:35) Episodes Sulkowski shows respect for TigersBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAlthough Baker County High didnt fair well in its kickoff classic loss against Baldwin High, head coach Ryan Sulkowski doesnt put a lot of stock into those contest. He knows that his Wildcats would get their first real test tonight at 7:30 p.m. against Columbia High in Lake City. Thats why he started preparing for this game during the summer. Going through the summer, we work year around, Sulkowski said. We never really get a break and its something that we make sure theres a commit-ment by the kids. Doing through the summer we did a lot of our conditioning and some seven on seven stuff. We hit the ground running with the new rules without two-a-days. It was a challenge adjusting the schedule, because were physically ready. 17 seniors graduate with 10 seniors back. Though the Wildcats field 10 seniors, that doesnt necessarily mean theyre all experienced starters. With the class of 2012, we lost some very good athletes, Sulkowski said. We have some kids when we take the field Friday that will be their first opportuni-ty in live action. Well have to grow up quickly against a top-five team in the state. Were up for the challenge. Its a bigger stage and an opportunity to step up and compete. The Wildcats will vary greatly from what the Tigers saw in their 34-0 kickoff classic win against Santa Fe. While the Raiders liked to run the ball, the Wildcats will try to air it out. Offensively, were based out of the spread, Sulkowski said. We do an equal share of pass and run. Were primarily a four-wide set. Again, its your typical spread. We dont try to do too much deception with it. We do a fair bit of play-action out of the gun. We like to run the ball with our quarterback Corey Lawler and it changes on a weekly basis depending on where we feel we can exploit the defense. Baker County will have a similar look to the Tigers with up front, but Sulkowski said it might not necessarily be what Columbia has seen on tape. Defensively we change on a weekly basis, he said. We know that Columbia has the option of using a power running game or spread attack. We know where their bread and bet-ter lies and we dont think its a secret. Well base out of a four-man front. We have a number of coverages and it really doesnt mat-ter week to week. In high school football, we like to play the run first. We have some things we can do with certain kids to get different looks every week. One matchup that Sulkowski is especially interested in seeing is left tackle Laremy Tunsil go up against his defensive tackle CeCe Jefferson. Laremy is a manchild, he said. Following him over the last couple of years, hes the number one player in the state as far as Im concerned. Nick Saban told us he thinks hes the best offensive lineman in the country. CeCe Jefferson is going to be a sophomore and hes not necessarily the only lineman that Tunsil will see. Its an exciting matchup with CeCe being a freshman All-American last year. Laremy is a special player and everyone wishes they had a couple of them. I think thats something everyone wants to really blow up, but it is what it is. Its a senior versus a pretty good sophomore. Well see how it goes. Sulkowski has one key for the Wildcats to have a chance at the upset. What we need to do to stand a chance is stop the power running game, he said. We have to bow our necks on defense and make that conscience effort to play our gap responsibilities. We need better penetration on defense. Columbia can lull you to sleep and we have to be ready at any moment to see that home-run ball. Offensively, we need to establish the line of scrim-mage. They have some quality guys up front.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 1, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My father died eight years ago. Mother couldnt afford to bury him at the time, so he was cremated. Mom asked me to keep his ashes until her time was up so they could be buried together. I have had them ever since. It makes me feel like he is still with me, that I have not totally lost him. However, over the last year, my brothers and sisters have led my mother to believe that I wont respect her wishes to have them buried together when the time comes. She is pressuring me to bury him NOW. It hurts me that my family could even think I would take that away from my mother. To this day, my siblings say mean things about Dad, claiming he was a terrible father and hus-band. Im a lot younger than the rest of them, so its possible I never saw the bad side of him. The father I knew was a car-ing, loving man, and it drives me crazy to hear my siblings speak ill of him. They dont remem-ber his birthday, the date of his death or even how long ago it was. Abby, I dont know what to do. If I go ahead and bury my dads ashes now, I feel I will be losing him completely. Please help me. I feel so lost. -SAD AND MISUNDERSTOOD DAUGHTER DEAR DAUGHTER: Perhaps there is a way to satisfy everybody. Before returning your fathers ashes to your mother and siblings for burial, take a small portion to keep for yourself. Your feelings are not all that unusual -and contrary to popular belief, not all ashes are scattered or buried. Sometimes they are retained for decades by family members who are not yet ready to part with them. DEAR ABBY: About a year ago, I began a part-time job for extra cash. My manager and I devel-oped an attraction for each other that soon led to a sexual relationship. The problem is that hes married with two children, and he is significantly older than me. I know now that this has to end. I have no emo-tional ties to him, but I think he is starting to care for me. I cant quit the job because a family member got it for me, and it would seem suspicious if I quit. Please respond soon because I am trying des-perately to avoid being alone with him, and its becoming more and more difficult. How do I end the affair and remain on decent terms with this man? -NEEDS A QUICK OUT DEAR NEEDS: Its difficult to remain on decent terms after there has been indecent exposure, but tell your manager your con-science demands that the hanky-panky stop. Then, if he tries to get you alone, tell him, Nothing doing -Ive turned over a new leaf. Im sure hell find a way to handle the rejection. If it breaks his heart, he can seek comfort from his wife, from whom he shouldnt have strayed in the first place. DEAR ABBY: Im going into junior high. Im a straight-A student and get my homework and projects done. But Im not that organized. I always put my assignments away, but when I need them, theyre never there! My mom complains to me about it and calls me a troll. My room isnt so hot, either. What can I do? -THE TROLL IN ST. PETE DEAR TROLL: The time to get organized is now. Begin by cleaning your room and making sure you have a study area that is not messy. After that, you should always put your projects and completed assign-ments in ONE SPOT, and they wont be lost. Youll be able to find them easily once you have only one place to look. DEAR ABBY: I am writing hoping to avert another tragedy like we experienced last week. Our German shepherd, Leah, was playing with a hard rubber ball the size of a tennis ball. Somehow, the ball slid down her throat. I tried to dislodge it by grabbing and pull-ing it out, then I tried the Heimlich maneuver. Neither worked. By the time we got Leah to the veterinarian, she was dead. They tried for 25 minutes to revive her. Leah was a friendly, funny, loving dog, not yet 2 years old. We miss her terribly. Abby, please tell your readers to never, ever let their dog play with any object that fits into its mouth. If it fits, it can lodge in the throat. I dont want anyone else to experience the pain of losing their dog like we lost ours. -KAREN IN CENTER VALLEY, PA. DEAR KAREN: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your beloved pet. However, because you wrote to other dog owners, take comfort in the knowledge that you have very likely saved another four-footed family members life. DEAR ABBY: My wellmeaning mother contin-ues to give me classics from her wardrobe that she no longer wears. Im a size 6 to 8 in my 50s. Mom is in her 80s and wears 12 to 14. Our sense of style is also not the same. My problem is, after insisting I take these items, shell often ask for them back several years later. It becomes awkward when I must explain I gave her clothes away. How can I politely stop her from gifting me these items? -NO LONGER HAS THEM DEAR NO LONGER HAS THEM: Say, Mom, these things wont fit me. But Ill be glad to drop them off at a charity thrift shop for you. Its honest, its practical, and someone can enjoy them. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married three years, and we are both lucky to have families that are kind and supportive. However, there is one recurring issue with his family that I find annoying. Nobody in my husbands family has a drivers license or owns a car. This includes his two aunts and mother, who all live in the same town we do. As the only driver in the family, I am regularly asked to shuttle relatives to the doctor, the pet groomer, the grocery store, etc. Abby, none of them have any physical or men-tal disability that prevents them from driving. We live in a city with a num-ber of cab companies that serve the area. I work hard so I can pay my car insurance bills, my car payments and buy gas to get to where I need to. Im starting to resent being asked to drive three able-bodied adults who are perfectly capable of driv-ing themselves or taking a taxi. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY Happy Birthday: You can make things happen by taking the initiative. Dont sit back, or some-one will swoop in and take over. Stick to your budget and plans, and refuse to let anyone cost you emotionally or finan-cially. Make choices that suit your needs, and you will come out on top with no regrets. Your numbers are 8, 14, 25, 32, 39, 42, 44. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Use experience to get things done quickly now. Dont allow personal prob-lems to interfere with a job you must complete.

Love is on the rise, and engaging in a little romantic fun will enhance your life. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Focus on saving, not spending. Youll have plenty to offer others without offering cash. Suggestions you make or hands-on help will be appreciated. An unusual investment may tempt you, but you are best to invest in your own skills and services. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take time to appreci-ate those who support you mentally, emotion-ally and financially. Acknowledging others is all thats required and will leave a better impression than spending money you dont have. Offer time, suggestions and services. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Short trips will lead to new adventures. Embrace learning something new. An emo-tional relationship with someone will be tested.

An unusual lifestyle will attract your attention. Feeling comfortable with your sur-roundings will make the difference between struggling to reach your goals and excelling with ease. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick to basics and the truth. You may want to passionately express your views, but if you deliver information that isnt factual, you will have to face the conse-quences. An emotional matter will hurt a rela-tionship you cherish. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Surprise everyone by doing things a little differently. You will find a unique way to turn what you have into so much more. An interesting offer must not be tossed aside. Good fortune will result from a worthwhile partnership. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Dont take chances that might lead to emotional uncertainty.

8B LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, AUG. 31-SEPT. 1, 20128BNASCAR Saturdays race at Bristol Motor Speedway had some of the feel of Bristol of old,but it really wasnt bec ause the grinding of the top groove produced the result it w as intended to produce. Instead of forcing drivers back to the bottom groov e,the grinding of the top groove ended up providing a pre ferred lane right on top of the concrete that was supposed to be too slick and the wrong angle for racing. The area at the top of the track took rubber as the tires wore down and provided good traction.But it didnt lead to the bump-and-run tactics of the past,because there was no room at the outside for the bumping driver to ru n to. The changes to the track caught many by surprise,ev en though Camping World Truck Series driver Ross Chast ain rode the high groove to a career-best third-place f inish in last Wednesdays truck race.He drove from 20th to t hird in the closing laps of that race. Still,drivers like Carl Edwards were surprised to s ee the top groove come into play. It really surprised me that that groove came in,h e said.Now all theyve got to do is grind that botto m groove like that and itll be bad to the bone.This place w ill be a solid two grooves very top and very bottom so I think theyre on their way to having a really good race t rack. Brad Keselowski,who had won the two previous Cup races at Bristol,wound up crashed this time and was critical of the changes to the surface. I know the goal was to make a one-groove race trac k so thered be more action,he said.But it had an inve rse effect to where now everybody is running up against the wall.And the pace of the field,combined with hard t ires, has made the track just even more of an aerodynamicfest. Jeff Gordon was among those hoping track officials would grind the entire track. He said the only real way to pass a driver now is t o put an old-fashioned slide job on them,where the passin g driver dives low,then slides up in front of the car ahe ad. I made several slide jobs,and I think I completed about 90 percent of them,he said.But that 10 percent th at I didnt complete cost me quite a few positions. The restarts were intense because youre out there in the bottom,and the outside groove is the preferred lane, and youre sliding and pushing up hard and rubbing up on guys. I think theres a little more intensity than norma l. That was certainly the case for Tony Stewart and Ma tt Kenseth,who crashed on Lap 333 while racing for thelead. Stewart got out of his car and threw his helmet at Kenseths car,bouncing it off the front end. I checked up twice to not run over [Kenseth],and I learned my lesson there;Im going to run over him e very chance Ive got from now til the end of the year,e very chance Ive got,Stewart told reporters afterward. Kenseth said it wasnt the first time this year tha t hes had problems with Stewart. On the race track for years and years and years,we ve had tons of respect for each other and,for whatever reason this year,he ran me off the track at Sears Point an d said he was sorry,Kenseth said.It cost me seven spots in the finishing order,and at Indy he was mad because he s aid I blocked him,and I asked for five minutes of his tim e to clear the air and he wouldnt give it to me,and pre tty much just got cussed out and knocked my whole side off and put us in position to get wrecked. So I just said,OK,thats fine.Im just going to r ace you the same way you race me, and he showed me how hewas going to race me down there,so I just did the s ame thing on the other end. With two races left to run before thestart of the Chase for the SprintCup,things are pretty predictable at the top of the standings,but tight as can bearound 10th place,and for the two wild cardslots that will complete the 12-driver field. Points leader Greg Biffle,along with second-place Jimmie Johnson and third-placeDale Earnhardt Jr.,clinched their Chaseberths at Bristol Motor Speedway Saturdaynight. Biffle got in despite a mediocre 19th-place run at Bristol,and Earnhardt clinched hisspot with a 12th-place finish that he got afterhaving to rally from a penalty for making apit stop when pit road was closed. We worked real hard all season,and I want to thank my guys,Earnhardt said.They do a good job every week and give megood strategy.I made a little mistake andcame down a closed pit.I dont know what wewere thinking. But we had a fast car We just lost that track position and couldnt get by some guys. The real contest,at Bristol and for the remaining Chase berths,was among the driv-ers at the bottom of the group vying for Chaseberths,and that battle was scrambled by theresults at Bristol. Ryan Newman,who entered Bristol second in the wild card running,crashed due to a flattire on Lap 189 and dropped to fourth.JeffGordon finished third at Bristol,but remainsthird in the wild card standings behind Kasey Kahne,and needs at least another victory tohave a real shot at a Chase berth. We cant let this get us down,Newmans crew chief Tony Gibson said after determiningthat the car was too damaged to patch up andput back on the track.Weve seen how onerace can change this whole deal on whomakes the Chase.Were not giving up.Wellfight to the bitter end. Gordon said his third-place Bristol finish keeps us still in it,because one of the otherguys in the wild card didnt win it. Gordon also pointed out that if Tony Stewart,who crashed at Bristol,or DennyHamlin,who won,were to fall out of the top 10,theyd likely take the wild card slots andleave the current contender out of the 10-racechampionship battle. I think we have all been kind of watching where if Denny or Tony fall outside the top-10,Gordon said.We have two more goodopportunities,Atlanta and Richmond,that wecan definitely get wins. Stewart dropped to 10th in the standings after Bristol and is just 16 points ahead ofKahne in 11th.At Bristol,Kahne rallied froman early brush with the wall to finish ninth. I feel like we put together another great race,Kahne said.We ran in the top 10 witha car that was beat up.You cant do much bet-ter than that.This team is doing a really goodjob. At one point in the race,Carl Edwards was looking like he could take advantage ofStewarts misfortunes and move right to theedge of the top 10 despite having no wins thisseason.But his fuel gamble didnt pay off andhe ran dry,which led to a 22nd-place finishand saw him wind up 12th in the standings,34 points out of the top 10. I made the decision to stay out,which in hindsight that was the wrong decision,because we probably would have finished bet-ter than we are right now,but I wanted achance to win the race,he said.If we wouldhave had one more caution or a couple cau-tions and short runs,we were up there in aposition to win this thing.You dont get thoseopportunities very often,so I had to take it. NOTEBOOK Martin crash raises safety issueAtlanta Motor Speedway president Ed Clark said he and his staff are prepared to makechanges to the pit road wall if NASCAR officialscome up with a way to reduce the likelihood ofan accident like Mark Martins at MichiganInternational Speedway two weeks ago in theSprint Cup circuits most recent race on asuperspeedway. Martin spun off the track and hit the blunt end of one of the openings in the wall there.Theimpact destroyed his car,but no one wasinjured. Clark said one of his main concerns is the safety of crew members and others behind thepit wall. Those people are the ones we need to be sure to protect,he said.I know the technical peopleat NASCAR are studying the situation,and ifwe need to make changes,we will. Clark pointed out that the track has the capability to block off the openings,but thatwould mean that there would have to be anoth-er way found for cars to get to and from thegarages to the race track.Weekend of milestones at AMSThis weekends AdvoCare 500 weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway will mark some signifi-cant milestone and anniversaries of previousmilestones for NASCAR drivers past and pres-ent. The trip to Atlanta marks the 50th anniver-sary of Rex Whites onlywin at Atlanta,and theonly superspeedway tri-umph of the career of the1960 champion.It also wasthe 28th and final Cup vic-tory in his relatively briefnine-year career. This weekends races will be the first at Atlantafor Travis Pastrana,whowill run the NationwideSeries race,and for Danica Patrick,who will race in both Nationwide andCup. Jeff Gordon will be celebrating his 20th year in Cup,a career that began at Atlanta in thefall race of 1992.That race also was the last oneas a driver for Richard Petty,and the car hedrove that day will be on display at AMS. That 92 race also was the first as track general manager for Ed Clark. Martin Truex Jr.will make his 250th Cup start,and Ryan Newman has a chance to breaka tie with his one-time mentor Buddy Baker formost poles at Atlanta.Both now have seven.IfNewman wins the pole,itll be the 50th of hisCup career.
