The state attorney generals Medicaid Fraud Control Unit part nered with the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, the Lake City Police Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate the Lake City pill mill doctor, the last defendant sentenced in a case involving now-defunct Trinity Community Hospital in Jasper. Park was convicted of three counts of Medicaid fraud, five counts of prescrip tion fraud, two counts of unau thorized posses sion of a prescription form, one count of scheme to defraud, and one count of selling a controlled substance. Investigators conducted a series of undercover visits and were pre scribed controlled substances, Hunter CRIME continued on 3A Its Fair time JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter William Gray wipes down a roller coaster car Thursday on the Wacky Worm ride in preparation for the Columbia County Fair, which opens tonight at 5 p.m. The fair continues through Saturday, Nov. 10. Gilmore Park Septic tank checks are out By TONY BRITT email@example.com Columbia County officials will not participate in a state program that requires local septic tanks be checked once every five years. Thursday night county officials unanimously voted to opt out of a state law that deals with septic tank evaluations. The opt-out provision is part of House Bill 1263, which covers a variety of public health procedures and requirements. In early 2012 the Florida Legislature passed the law, which allows counties to exempt their residents from existing require ments that they have their septic tanks inspected every five years. The intent is admirable and I think the Board (of Columbia County Commissioners) indicated that, but the problem is in the way the law is enforced, said Dale Williams, county manager. The law only applies to a select few people. The law itself exempted a number of people. The law was not going to reach everyone like you may like, only a few people and that was an issue and a concern. Williams said the law also con tained no provision for low income residents who could face financial hardships in by having their septic systems check under the guide lines of the program. Commissioner Rusty DePratter noted that 13 counties out of 19 Lt.

County drops out of NFBA Commission votes 5-0 to withdraw. By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Allegations of waste, mis appropriation and potential liability associated with the North Florida Broadband Authority proved to be too much for county commis sioners, who voted unani mously Thursday to with draw from the NFBA. The move came after Commissioner Stephen Bailey read a resolution he authored urging fellow commis sioners to vote to withdraw. The reso lution, which cited waste, misappropriation and potential liability, did not offer specific evidence to back the claims, nor did it include a date when it would take effect. The boards decision to leave the NFBA comes less than a month after NFBA officials requested space on county communication towers as part of in-kind services pledged by the county, and county officials requested information from the agency before making its decision. I was not satisfied with any of the answers I received, Bailey said. Weve yet to get anything back from NFBA about the information we requested ... I do not feel its in the best interest of Columbia County or the citizens of Columbia County to be in the NFBA. County officials request Time to fall back Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday at 2 a.m. Be sure to set your clocks back an hour before going to bed Saturday.

AROUND FLORIDA DUI death gets man 10 years MIAMI A judge ordered a 72-year-old Miami man to serve 10 years in prison for a 2009 hit-and-run crash that killed a businessman. The Miami Herald reported Charles Bible will also serve 10 years of pro bation in the death of 36year-old Rudy Garmendia. Garmendias family agreed to Wednesdays plea deal to spare his family of the gruesome details of his death. Authorities said Garmendia was changing a flat tire on the Dolphin Expressway when he was hit by Bibles truck. Bible fled after striking Garmendia but the Florida Highway Patrol found his truck within an hour. The Herald reported Bible was shaking and struggling to speak in court as he apologized to the family. Outspoken judge in ethics probe TALLAHASSEE A state investigative panel is questioning the impartial ity of an outspoken Palm Beach County judge who frequently criticizes what he sees as racial bias in state laws, prosecutors and law enforcement. The Judicial Qualifications Commission panel filed formal charges with the Florida Supreme Court on Wednesday, alleging that Judge Barry M. Cohen has abused his position by using it as a bully pulpit and under mined his impartiality through his comments. The panel cited Cohens comments from the bench, in written orders and at public forums. Cohen has been accused of saying, among other things, that minorities are disproportionally arrested and jailed for drug traf ficking, law enforcement officers may be motivated by the race or status of suspects and blacks do not feel free to exercise their constitutional rights in the county. The judges lawyers linked the allegations against Cohen to recent attacks on the judiciary they said are threatening its independence. Judge Cohen will vig orously defend himself against allegations which infringe on the ability of judges to perform their duties in an independent manner, wrote attorneys Scott Richardson and Donnie Murrell. Cohen can contest the allegations in writing and through a hearing. The commission then can clear him or recommend a penalty ranging from a reprimand to removal from office to the Supreme Court, which has final authority. 4 stabbed leaving Halloween party MIAMI Police said four people were stabbed while leaving a Halloween party in Miamis Coconut Grove neighborhood. Miami police said four men were taken to a Jackson Memorial Hospital early Thursday morning. Miami television station WPLG reported one man was in extremely critical condition, two were in stable condition and the fourth suffered minor injuries. According to WPLG, wit nesses helped police track down the suspect, who was in custody Thursday morning. Miami police spokes woman Kenia Reyes said they dont know what caused the argument that led to the stabbing.

Spears, Odom face test of live TV LOS ANGELES B ritney Spears was coolly composed on the first live episode of The X Factor. The same cant be said for new host Khloe Kardashian Odom and her microphone. Odom, adding to her reality TV credentials, was paired with Mario Lopez to emcee X Factor as the sing ing contest shifted Wednesday from taped to live broad casts. Lopez, host of Extra, performed like the pro he is. Odom came across like the novice she is, shouting her lines despite the mic clutched in her hand and making awk ward small talk with contestants and judge and executive producer Simon Cowell. When Lopez teased 13-year-old singer Diamond White about having a boyfriend, the girl replied, No, were friends. My mom would kill me. Dont let your mom kill you, exclaimed Odom, drawing a con fused smile from White. At another point, Odom sounded like an oddly flirtatious schoolgirl as she introduced Cowell as Mr. Sexy. Foster earns lifetime achievement honor LOS ANGELES Jodie Foster is adding a new trophy to her collec tion a lifetime-achievement honor at the Golden Globes. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Thursday that Foster will receive the groups Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 70th annual Globes cer emony on Jan. 13. Foster, 49, is a two-time Globes and Academy Award winner. She was hon ored with leading actress trophies at both ceremonies for 1991s The Silence of the Lambs and 1988s The Accused, which she won in a three-way tie at the Globes with Sigourney Weaver for Gorillas in the Mist and Shirley MacLaine for Madame Sousatzka. DeMille Award winners are cho sen by the board of directors for the foreign press group. It includes about 90 reporters who cover Hollywood for overseas outlets. Jodie is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career, said HFPA president Aida Takla-OReilly. Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for bud ding artists in this business. Shes truly one of a kind. Foster has appeared in more than 40 films. She began her career at 3 years old, starring in a Coppertone commercial, and went on to act in such movies as Alice Doesnt Live Here Anymore, Taxi Driver, Nell, The Brave One and Carnage. She also directed the films Little Man Tate, Home for the Holidays and The Beaver. Police: Hackman knew homeless man he hit SANTA FE, N.M. Actor Gene Hackman had given clothes, money and rides to a homeless man whom he slapped this week after the man became aggressive toward the Oscar-winning actor and his wife, according to a police report detailing the incident in Santa Fe, N.M. Police say Hackman acted in self-defense and no charges have been filed. Hackman told officers he had helped Bruce Becker, 63, for several years, and Becker told a similar story. But their versions of the actual physical confrontation diverge, with Hackman saying his slapped the man once and Becker saying he was hit 10 to 12 times by the tough-guy actor. The report released by Santa Fe police said both agreed the incident began when Becker approached Hackman and his wife, Betsy, on a street early Tuesday afternoon and asked for money. Becker told police Hackman called him a worthless bum and told him to get a job. Hackman said he told Becker to get a job and tried to walk away but Becker kept following him and his wife asking for money and calling them by a derogatory name. Becker said he told Hackman, Gene, you are just another Clint Eastwood, you are nothing but an empty chair, an apparent reference to Eastwoods Republican National Convention appearance this summer. He said thats when Hackman went ballistic and began pummeling him, he told officers. Hackman, 82, told police Becker became angry when he refused to give him money, called him a name and moved in close in a threatening manner. The actor told officers thats when he slapped Becker.

DOCTOR: Sentenced Continued From Page 1A County property tax notices mailed By DEREK GILLIAM dgilliam@lakecityreporter Check your mailbox. Columbia County property tax bills for 2012 were mailed Oct. 31 and are now payable. Ronnie Brannon, Columbia County tax collector, said tax revenues this year are $51,888,781, down about three percent from last year. Payments dont have to be paid in one lump sum, but dont expect to set up a par tial payment plan in March -all taxes are due before April 1, Brannon said. All unpaid tax bills are considered delinquent on April 1, 2013, he said. At which time, a three percent statutory pen alty will be charged. Payments can be made in person, by mail or on the Columbia County tax collec tors website. Property taxes can be paid in person at the main lobby or through the drive-thru. The drivethru hours are 7:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m., and the lobby hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. There is an office in Fort White. The office is open on Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The average property tax bill for a single family home in Columbia County is about $1,240, Brannon said. Because of Tropical Storm Debbie, property values of damaged homes or businesses may have decreased. Property values are one component used to deter mine the amount of taxes owed to the tax ing authorities. Brannon said, so far, those bills havent been adjusted. The taxing authorities are the city, the Board of County Commissioners, the school board, the Swannee River Water Management District and the Lake Shore Hospital Authority. Elizabeth Porter, Florida state represen tative for District 11, said she has asked the governor, the Florida Senate president and the Florida Speaker of the House to call a special session of the Florida legisla ture to address this problem. Were just in the waiting stages, she said. If a special session isnt called, the regular session doesnt start until March. Property taxes are due before April 1. My recommendation is, pay the tax bill and hope for an adjustment at a later date, Brannon said. In the state of Florida, if a taxpayer pays the tax bill early they receive a discount. The earlier the bill is paid the larger the discount. The discount for paying in November is four percent, with a three percent discount for December, a two percent discount for January and a one percent discount for February. There is no discount for paying in March. Over the past three years, tax rolls have decreased a total of eight percent. The money brought in from ad valorem prop erty taxes are down 10 percent. Ad valorem is the actual taxes assesed to the property, not including Brannon said their are a couple of rea sons for the tax rolls being down. The first is the millage rates are down. The other is property values could also be down. Brannon In addition, the crimessolved rate (number of case cleared) for the county is also improved compared to 2011, but didnt improve in the city. The overall clear ance rate is 35.0 percent, up from 28.6 percent last year. In the first six months of the year there was 1,940 total arrests by local law enforcement agencies com pared with 1,593 for the first six months of 2011. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office reported 1,311 arrests; the Lake City Police Department reported 311 arrests; the Department of Environmental Protection Division of Law Enforcement reported one arrest; the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported 79 arrests and the Florida Highway Patrol reported 238 arrests. According to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, in the unincorpo rated areas of the county, there was a decrease in the crime rate during the first six months of the year as well as an increase in the crimes solved rate (percent age of cases solved). The overall crime rate, based on the number of murders, forcible sex offenses, robberies, aggra vated assaults, burglaries, larceny and motor vehicle thefts, declined 10.4 per cent in the county, while the crimes-solved rate increased to 49.3 percent. The crimes solved rate in the first half of 2011 was 37.1 percent. The state average for crimes solved rate is 24.6 percent. Sheriffs office offi cials said numerous fac tors can be attributed to the decrease in the crime rate and the increase in the crimes-solved rate and said they were proud that citizens have continued to partner with the sheriffs office to not only report crime but to be proactive in the solving of crimes. I am very proud of all of the employees of the Sheriffs Office, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter said in a prepared state ment. They have worked extremely hard over the last year and their commit ment to our community has had a positive result. In the city, the crime rate fell 3.8 percent, but the crimes-solved rate decreased to 16.9 percent. In the first half of 2011 the citys crimes solved rate was 17.1 percent. Police officials said one of the ongoing challenges for the LCPD is property crimes. Both vehicle and resident Police representatives urge everyone to take a moment to make sure valu ables are out of sight and doors and windows are secured. They also suggest residents utilize outside lighting during nighttime hours. Police officials indicate they have a concern over domestic violence type crimes, which decreased from 96 offenses at midyear in 2011 to 84 offens es in the first half of this year. Authorities continue to urge victims to report domestic violence and seek assistance from law enforce ment as soon as possible. This years report iden tifies areas within our com munity where our officers have made an impact part nering with the citizens of Lake City, LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore said in a prepared statement. We are continuing to take pro active steps by working special details to identify and apprehend those per sons who are committing these types of crimes. We are encouraging our citi zens to be vigilant in report ing suspicious persons or incidents in their neigh borhoods and businesses, either by calling 911, our department at 752-4343 or using the TIP line at 719-2068. Additionally, our crime prevention officer is available to work with neighborhood and commu nity groups to educate them on how not to be a victim of a crime of opportunity. Family Fall Fest JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Lori Koon stands still as Teppi Hardin (center) and Christina Curtis (right) adjusts her wings before delivering a perfor mance in the Heaven room at Christ Central Ministries ninth annual Family Fall Fest on Wednesday.
W hat a dreary, dispiriting elec-tion conversa-tion this has been. I hoped for serious discussions of how to pay for Social Security and Medicare. I want-ed real talk about rebuilding Americas infrastructure and improving public education. I wanted ideas for restoring the middle class and motivating young people to realize their stake in the countrys future. Mitt Romney has been a disappointing candidate. He brought a brilliant resume to the race governor of Massachusetts, successful businessman, savior of the Salt Lake City Olympic Games. But he campaigned as someone completely different. Desperate for the Republican nomination, he made ridiculous statements during the prima-ries (such as vowing to dis-mantle the Federal Emergency Management Agency). Romneys campaign put out outright lies, such as repeat-edly insisting Jeep plans to take Toledo, Ohio, jobs to China, forcing car-company executives to denounce Romneys ads as untrue. Romney said nothing as GOP operatives tried to disenfran-chise minority voters, raising the specter of nonexistent wide-spread voter fraud while ram-ming through state laws aimed at making voting more difficult. Romney allied himself with buffoons such as Donald Trump, who repeatedly, without any merit, accused President Barack Obama of not having a legitimate birth certifi-cate and of being named editor of the Harvard Law Review without credentials. Romney never admonished people in his audiences who said vile things about Obama, unlike John McCain, who in 2008 firmly told a woman that Obama was no evil traitor but a fine man with whom he dis-agreed politically. Romney failed to give us one new idea on creating jobs. As for students struggling to pay soaring college tuition? Let them borrow from their parents. Romney promised to reduce the deficit but refused to say how, except that hed get rid of Big Bird. Romney dismissed as irrelevant 47 percent of Americans who dont make enough to pay federal income taxes, are exempted while in combat or are elderly. Yet he said its fair that, despite his vast wealth, he pays a far lower rate effec-tively, 14.1 percent in 2011 than most middle-income Americans. He let the conversation focus on such absurd distractions as contraception. It was up to Romney, the challenger, to give us reason-able, workable alternatives to Obamas policies and phi-losophy of government. But Romney could not do that because he forfeited his back-bone to win the nomination. As a result, we have no idea what Romney really believes or what he would do as president or even why he wants to be president except that it is next on his to-do list. Why Romney shouldnt be elected ANOHER VIEW I n this society where so often were around people nearly our own age, I believe its good to have the opportunity to have meaningful contact and commu-nication with people of all ages. Diversity is vital. I think common sense agrees with me: Everybody has something to offer; something we can learn from. Students in my developmental psychology class learn about the psychology of all age groups. Psychology is the study of mental processes thinking, feeling, and behaving. It turns out that each age group, from birth to death, has a psychology of its own. Each age group goes through stages, and at each stage, life presents situations. Some situations we all face: starting school, gradu-ation, family, career, retirement and growing old. In the class, we learn about lifes mile-stones, problems, challenges, opportunities and strategies for succeeding at each stage of life and preparing for the next. An underlying theme is meet-ing challenges positively, and building strategies for achieving happy satisfying lifestyle devel-opment. Research shows that students learn more when given oppor-tunities to participate actively. They can learn lifestyle develop-ment by developing their own research plans, and carrying out face-to-face research with real people in each age group. Ninety-nine percent of the students think that research is just looking up articles in the library and putting those ideas into a term paper. My goal is to help them learn how to do basic research of their own. I introduce them to research by handing out a research work-sheet to follow. It begins with a question to be answered. They then need to choose a research method to best answer the ques-tion. Some of the basic research methods include observation, testing, surveying, case stud-ies, correlation studies and experiments. We break up into small groups of three or four students, who choose among issues or research questions, then develop basic research to find answers. They usually go one step farther: They come up with ideas to help that age group meet lifes problems and challenges and to help them advance suc-cessfully to the next stage of their lives. After each group has developed its own research plan, they report their plan to the class. Im always pleasantly surprised with their creativity and thoughtful planning of the research. When we studied infants, one group studied results of physi-cal contact, holding babies and helping them learn satisfying attachment and bonding, and prepared a brief professional-looking brochure explaining the importance of physical contact to offer new moms. About a third of my classes are preparing to become teach-ers. One group studied the importance of time spent reading to preschoolers and dis-cussing what was read, to help kids learn reading comprehension. A group that studied teenagers studied bullying and aggres-sion, and came up with some workable solutions that could be used in our schools. Another group studied teens knowledge about suicide and how to rec-ognize danger signs, and devel-oped a handout for high school teachers or other teens to use. A group studying why kids hang out in malls found loneli-ness, feelings of rejection, a need to belong to a group, to meet the opposite sex or even to get in trouble of one sort or another. By studying the reasons, community programs could be explored to meet those needs in a positive way and help kids stay out of trouble. One of my favorite studies was whether pet ownership helps people live better, health-ier and longer lives. The stu-dents developed a plan to work with nursing homes who would agree to let them volunteer to bring in a dog once a week for each elderly person who expressed an interest, and get staff to help evaluate the results. That could put some smiles on some lonely patients. Some of the research plans develop into helpful community service projects. Im always impressed with how the students go beyond what the original assignment was. Its rewarding to see them as they develop into educated, successful, capable and respon-sible citizens. Therein lies hope for our country and for our world. Making research human W hoever triumphs in Tuesdays presidential election Barack Obama or Mitt Romney the one sure winner in my estimation is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The rotund, irrepressibly charismatic Republican, who often resembles a Mack truck both in size and the way he crashes through the usual roadblocks other potential national candi-dates avoid, has put the welfare of those who elected him above partisan considerations. Its a rare act of political courage. Faced with the horrendous task of putting his state back together again after the dev-astation of superstorm Sandy, Christie came out singing the praises of his Republican Partys chief nemesis. The president, he let the world know, has been of paramount help in the dark days of the perfect storm, the brunt of which was taken by Christies beloved Jersey Shore. Forget the election, Christie announced. At this stage, he couldnt care less. The only thing that mattered to him, he said, was the quick response of the Oval Offices current occu-pant, who, at least for the time being, has become his new best friend. Christie walked through the wreckage almost arm in arm with the nations chief executive, both of them offering solace to victims. Who can blame him? That remains to be seen. Christie burst on the scene as a bigger-than-life, free-wheel-ing moderate who many saw at one time as the best hope of defeating Obama but who made it clear he wasnt interested in running, at least this time. He resisted totally the siren call of bigger things, supporting Romney and bringing humor and good will to the presidential campaign. His possible aspira-tions for a prolonged stay on Pennsylvania Avenue were put on hold, perhaps as soon as 2016, if Romney loses. There are those in GOP circles who are likely to reflect on Christies ebullience over Obamas contribution to New Jerseys welfare and find it over the top, just a little too passion-ate even for the irrepressible Christie. That will be a near certainty if Romney falls short on Tuesday. Politicians have long memories, and what might be regard-ed as an act of statesmanship by Christie could develop into its own storm for him during what would be an all-out scramble for the GOP nomination four years from now. That is, if hes interested.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org W henever there is a major natural disaster in the United States, most people affected look to the U.S. government and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide help in its aftermath. That was true here after the devastating 2011 tornadoes. It was true follow-ing Hurricane Katrinas 2005 rampage. It is no doubt true now that Hurricane Sandy and a related superstorm continue to batter a goodly portion of the United States. FEMAs response isnt always up to speed and there often are questions about policy and rules (there were some here after the tornadoes). Usually, though, FEMA does an adequate job providing large-scale disaster aid and assistance in instances where any other agency or the private sector would be hard-pressed to meet staggering need. Not many, then, question the federal agencys overall mis-sion, much less its existence. Mitt Romney, however, does. Hes on record in a 2011 GOP primary debate as say-ing that it was immoral for the federal government to be spend-ing money on disaster relief, when it should be focused on deficit reduction. He went on to say that states, not the federal government, should deal with natural disasters. ... Romney knows he cant take back his original statement about FEMA, so over the week-end he issued an extremely vague press release indicating that he now supports some federal involvement in disaster relief. ... FEMA provides services that no other agency can afford or arrange on such a vast scale over multiple state borders ... One might debate about how FEMA does its work, but those like Romney who say its job should be eliminated or trun-cated have no understanding of the role it does play. ...

I think ample time was given for them to get us the information, especially seeing the grant expires January 31, said Bailey, the commissions vice chair man. Were two months away and they dont even have their core network, much less people to keep them sustainable. The grant said they would have customers and be sustain able and its not. Bailey said withdraw als from NFBA by other North Florida counties and municipalities impacted his decision. When the others start ed withdrawing I felt like Im not the only one think ing, lets look at this, he said. We tried to get them here to answer some ques tions, but they never would come, so this is the result. The NFBA was award ed $30,142,676 in federal stimulus funds to develop a network to serve North Floridians who were unserved or underserved in regards to high-speed Internet services. Federal rules mandated that the project be com pleted within three years. The broadband project was initially designed to increase broadband access to 22 North Florida govern ments North Florida counties, and eight North Florida cities. Several counties and cit ies have pulled out of the broadband authority since its inception. I feel like this is a trag edy of money that could have went to a good cause, Commissioner Rusty DePratter said. County Manager Dale Williams said he is unaware of any financial penalty that may apply to the county for severing ties with the agency. affected by the original law have opted out of the program. Only areas with firstmagnitude freshwater springs are covered by the bill. The Florida Department of Health already has rules and regulations dealing with septic tanks and septic tanks inspec tions and those rules are still in effect, Williams said. In other business, the commission: Voted in favor of coming up with a written job description for the assistant county manager position; Denied accepting a low bid on a tract of land designated as county surplus; Approved the construction contract for the final phase of the Bascom-Norris connector road project; and Approved the low bid of $1.8 million for construction work on Falling Creek Road.
FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, November 2-3, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V Angels in the apocalyptic vision Gods creation more powerful than humansW e closed last week with the translation of the church from earth to heaven. This week we will briefly see the angelic role in the book of Revelation after the rapture. The first record is found in Revelation 5:11: Then I (John) looked, and I heard the voices of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands saying with a loud voice: worthy is the Lamb who was slain. This is the angels song of adoration; for they had witnessed the great condescension and suf-fering; they saw the Lamb slain. Therefore, they now rejoice for He is on His throne. Revelation 8:3-6 before the trumpets of the judgment are blown, another angel is seen with a golden censer. The angel offers up the incense to be offered with the prayers of all the saints. The angels are given the task of The Seven Trumpet Judgment and the pouring out of The Seven Bowls of Judgment on the earth and lost humanity. As you study the 14 judgments, they should be taken literally. Praise God we the saints are in heaven before this great and ter-rible Day of the Lord. Then in Revelation 14:8 Another angel announces the Fall of Babylon. This announce-ment is fulfilled in Chapter 17. In Revelation 14:6 we have an angel with the Everlasting Gospel taking it to all the people of the world who have previously not heard the gospel. This is the ful-filling of the prophesy by Jesus as recorded in Matthew 24:14. In Revelation 14:9-11 we have an angel announcing the Wrath of God upon all those who receive the mark of Satan. In bringing to a conclusion our all-too-brief study of Angels the innumerable hosts of spirit-beings, both holy and evil, of whom the Scriptures bear such abundant testimony we cannot but realize the tremen-dous importance of the much neglected subject, if we are to have a clearer and more appre-ciative understanding of their direct but invisible relation to the affairs of this present world, and their ministry to serve and to succor the heirs of salvation during their earth pilgrimage. We have attempted to depict a cross-section, as it were, of the many and varied aspects of Angelic activity. There are many specifically recorded occasions both of the ministrations of Holy Angels and the onslaughts of fallen, evil angels that, obviously, could not be included. But it is my prayer that a new interest in the unseen realm, which is in reality the Christians battleground (Ephesians 6:12), might arouse us all to put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (Ephesians 6:13-18). Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen (Jude 24-25). We chose not to deal with the hosts of unholy angels at this time. We only wrote about the heavenly hosts; but be sure the un-heavenly hosts are out there. T ed Anthony, a national writer for The Associated Press, reported New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as saying, Nature is an awful lot more powerful than we are (Lake City Reporter, October 31, 2012, p. 3A). I would like to say AMEN! in reference to the mayors statement concern-ing Superstorm Sandy. Her power is seen in the damage she has inflicted upon trees, buildings and land where she came ashore and beyond. Instead of saying nature as the respected mayor said, I would like to call it Gods creation. When we think of all that goes into such a superstorm, His power is demonstrated and our weakness is highlighted. The news media, especially the Weather Channel, had been predicting for several days that this storm was going to hit the northeast. The exact land fall was not known until the last min-ute but the general area predic-tion was right on target. Having all of this information beforehand, humans could not stop the storm nor change the direction of the storm. We could only prepare for it to hit. The meteorologist on the Weather Channel kept telling their viewers that this storm was growing. I remember hearing one report which said that if you took an airplane ride across the diam-eter of the storm, it would take approximately 2.5 hours. That is a huge storm. After the storm came ashore I saw a report that showed the storm was approximately 1500 miles across the center; that is a little farther than from Miami, Florida to Boston, Massachusetts. That is not a huge storm that is a humongous storm! Not being a meteorologist, I do not have the expertise nor is it within the scope of this article, to give all the details of what it took to make this storm happen, but rather the scope is to point out how powerful Gods creation really is. What Paul said to the Romans (1:20) is so true. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they [and we] are without excuse. One of the things on which we must all agree when we look at this massive storm is that there must be someone more powerful than we are that created the ele-ments which made up this storm. It is not my belief that God created this specific storm. However, it is my belief that because of what He created in times past, all the elements were present for Sandy to occur. It is my belief that the dynamics of meteorology, which He put in place, gave birth to this storm. Based upon the evidence of this storm, one must conclude that there must be a being which is superior to mankind not only in power but intelligence to think up all of this stuff. Based upon this evidence should we not con-clude that we need to know more about this intelligent being? Should we not want to find out more about this being? More could be said about the power of Gods creation but my hope is that what has been writ-ten here is enough to interest you to the point that you will spend some time meditating upon the power of Gods creation which shows His power. The Bible gives us a lot more information about this God and His power! May we read it like so many did Ted Anthonys article.

People of faith, grounded in moral truth, must be prepared to determine those candidates best able to uphold Gods moral standard. As Christs representatives on earth, we are to be salt and light in our culture (Matthew 5:13-16). Focus on the Familys founder, Dr. James Dobson wrote, We live in a representative form of govern-ment where we are its leaders. It means that every citizen has a responsibility to participate in the decisions that are made and that includes people of faith [using] his or her influence for what is moral and just. A recent study by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans say their faith has little to do with their voting deci-sions. In fact, many believers fail to consider their biblical values when voting, often choosing candidates whose positions are at odds with their own beliefs, con-victions, and values. But Charles Colson, founder of the Prison Fellowship ministry, highlighted the need for something more than voting the party line when he wrote: Societies are tragically vulnerable when the men and women who compose them lack char-acter. A nation or a culture can-not endure for long unless it is under-girded by common values such as valor, public-spiritedness, respect for others and for the law; it cannot stand unless it is populated by people who will act on motives superior to their own immediate interest. Keeping the law, respecting human life and property, loving ones family, fighting to defend national goals, helping the unfor-tunate, paying taxes all these depend on the individual virtues of courage, loyalty, charity, com-passion, civility and duty. Acting on motives superior to their own immediate interests means that where a candidate stands on issues like abortion and protecting Gods definition of marriage and family should be more of a decision maker on who to vote for than what financial relief they are promising on the campaign trail. In Proverbs 29:2, the Bible is clear: When the righteous rule, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. As believers, lets choose to vote next Tuesday, and lets use our voice to uphold Gods standard by voting values because the hearts of this generation and the next they really do matter!

Blessings, Angie I was in the shed just clean-ing up. I had the radio on for company. The news was announced a tower in New York City has been hit by an airplane. I went into the house and turned on the television, and I was shocked. Then another plane, and another tower was hit. People were looking, pointing at the fatally wounded towers. I was just one of millions, stunned and shocked by the actions of a few religious fanatics. I was angry that people would do this. Who were they? Why did they do this? What do they want? America has helped so many people around the world now this?!!! People were jumping from the towers. Hearts were breaking, Tears were flowing. Time passed, but just as I thought things were bad, they got worse, as one tower crumbled and fell, and then the second came down. People were screaming, crying, running, fall-ing, covered in dust. There were people trying to save people that had died. New York was hit, America was hurt. Where once two tall towers proudly stood and marked the skyline, now an empty space, and smoke. President Bush stood, represent-ing a hurt, angry. determined America, and promised, Soon those who did this will be brought to justice. Here it is 2012, we have been at war with Islamic terrorists for 11 long years. Battles have been and are still being fought, and we have not won the victory, not yet! Now, 9/11 is once again marked by death of Americans. This is not the time to pretend the victory is won, for it is not. This is not the time to get tired of the fight but it is time to remember what this has been about, and renew our determina-tion to win. There is no substi-tute for victory. Christians are at war with Satan and all he stands for. Jesus came and beat him when he died on the cross, (Hebrews 2:14). Yet we still have to fight. The Christian must be prepared, and wear the armor necessary to do battle, (Ephesians 6:10-18). The devil may hit us and knock us down and discourage us, but through Jesus, we are not defeated. One person said, I have read te end of the book, and, guess what ... we win. Until then we must not forget, there is no substitute for victory. We cannot make peace with this enemy nor can we make a truce or time-out. Satan wants our total defeat. Just like those represented on 9/11. There can be no truce, nor peace, for that is not what they want. They want us to give in and give up. Not America! Not Christians! We will fight on, and win! If you are one who is discouraged, or just tired of the fight, remember, enduring and persevering will be worth it. Renew your heart in prayer and study of scriptures and get with a good brother or sister and let them encourage you as well. Attend the assembly of the saints, and drink in the love and fellowship that God has added us all to. Winston Churchill was invited to speak one time at a university. He approached the podium slow-ly, but resolutely. He was silent for a minute or so, the students waiting for words from the war-worn prime minister. He cleared his throat, and looked out at the student body and said, Never ... never ... never ... give up! Then he returned to his seat. Thats all they and we need to hear and do.

Southern Baptist Convention President Fred Luter said Wednesday that he wants more diversity in the 16-million-member organization. Luter, the first black president of the convention, was in Jackson for the 177th gathering of the Mississippi Baptist Convention. After delivering a sermon at First Baptist Church of Jackson, Luter told report-ers his selection as presi-dent shows a commitment to increasing diversity, but he said theres more to be done. For years this convention has been talking about how they want other ethnic groups in the con-vention. This year, June 19 in New Orleans, La., we stopped talking about it and we put our money where our mouths at and they voted me as president, the first African-American president of the Southern Baptist Convention, Luter said. However, it cannot stop with me. Weve got to recruit other African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, weve got to have more diversity in the con-vention. The message of Luters sermon during the last day of the gath-ering on Wednesday was that only God can solve the problems facing the United States.

Columbias bowling team defended its district championship and will make its third straight trip to the state tournament. Columbias volleyball team made the state playoffs for the first time since 1999, and only the third time in school history. The Lady Tigers have already won a playoff game, the first since Columbias district winning team in 1997. Hannah Burns, Lindsay Lee, Stephanie Silva and Micheala Polhamus advanced to region in swimming. Burns is a repeat district champion in the 200 IM and the 100 breaststroke. She is defending state champion in the latter. Lee qualified for region in the 50 freestyle and 100 backstroke. Lee made region last year in the 50 free. Silva and Polhamus are going as members of both the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relay teams. The Lady Tigers golf team came up short of returning to region, but Gillian Norris and Brooke Russell qualified for region as individuals. Columbias girls cross country team could not field five runners for an official entry in the 2011 district meet. This year, the Lady Tigers have won events in Titusville and Fernandina Beach and will have an impact at district. All teams but golf are still competing and there could be more accolades to come. The federal government had a major role in female sports with the passing of Title IX legislation 40 years ago. We have that to thank for many of the opportunities given our girls to play sports in high school and college. Q Tim Kirby is sports editor of the Lake City Reporter JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Braxton Stockton breaks free around the edge during the Tigers 21-0 win against Orange Park High on Friday. The Tigers host Leon High for homecoming at 7:30 p.m. tonight. Playoff positioning JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort Whites Trey Phillips (5) runs the ball in a game against Fernandina Beach on Oct. 18. Fort White, Trinity Catholic playing for district title By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE It is a showdown with an aster-isk. Fort White High hosts Trinity Catholic High today in a game to decide District 3-3A. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. Fort White and Trinity Catholic are the only teams in the district, so both have been in the playoffs since the spring. Still, there is plenty to play for the winner gets home field advantage in the playoffs. That would be a first for Fort White, which has had to travel for all seven of its previous playoff games. We look at the fact we can make history in the playoffs, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. To be at home in the playoffs is really big. It makes the road easier for us. Were going to give everything weve got to win the game. Fort White and Trinity Catholic come into the game with 5-3 records on the field. Trinity Catholic is officially 6-2 after its first-game loss to North Marion High was reversed on a for-feit. Both teams have tough schedules in preparation for today and the playoffs to come. Fort White has played Wakulla High, which is undefeated and moved up to No. 1 in Class 5A last week. The Indians also INDIANS continued on 2BOh, my: Lions, Tigers and homecomingBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High has its homecoming game tonight against a familiar opponent for head coach Brian Allen. Leon High comes into Tiger Stadium led by former Florida State and Suwannee High player Bill Ragans. Allen and Ragans know each other due to the Seminole brotherhood and have spoke this week. I talked to him just a little while ago, Allen said. Were good friends. I love that brother from Florida State. He comes from the same coaching tree as I do. Ragans has coached for 16 years at the college and high school levels, but this year hasnt been the year he would have hoped for out of the Lions. Leon (2-6, 1-3 District 3-6A) only had one win in the district after defeating Orange Park High, 31-29. Although its been a tough season for the Lions, Allen believes that Ragans will have Leon fired up to spoil the Tigers homecoming. But Allen doesnt expect there to be any extra moti-vational advantage going up against an old Bulldog and Seminole. Hes been a rival growing up in Suwannee, Allen said. Im not going to play into adding anything into the game. Despite the Lions record, Allen knows that Leon can still compete. I hate that this year has been down, but thats some-thing we all go through in coaching, he said. You have to look to the next year and hope that it can be better. I can guarantee that theyll be ready to play and spoil our homecoming. Thats always the case if Columbia High completes district schedule tonight. CHS continued on 2B

Fort White had three 5A and two 4A teams on its schedule. Trinity Catholic has played Gainesville High, the No. 1 team in Class 6A, East Lake High, which received votes in Class 8A, and a district champion in Eastside High. Both of us have been battle-tested, Jackson said. I think our schedule was a little tougher. Trinity Catholic was the dominant team in the two meetings last year, but it is a new roster for 2012. I talked with Coach (John) Brantley and he said they are not as good as last year, but are still pretty sound, Jackson said. They lost nine guys on defense, but they return some guys who can play, and they have picked it up the last couple of weeks. They will come in with a good squad. Jackson said a win will take few mistakes on the part of the Indians and tak-ing advantage of miscues by the Celtics. If they give us opportunities to capitalize, we have to do our part, Jackson said. We need to take what they give us and take care of the ball. We cant be pas-sive and we cant run the ball over.

Allen said he doesnt expect any surprises for the offense at this point in the season and the Tigers simply must execute. Defensively theyre a 4-3 look, Allen said. They move the safety around and do some things with him. Weve seen it all at this point blitzing, man and zone. Its a matter of exe-cuting our assignments.
LAKE CITY REPORTER FOOTBALL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2-3, 2012 3B3BSportsSEC could be left out of BCSBy RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressA BCS championship game without a Southeastern Conference team? It could happen, and LSU could be the cause. The fifth-ranked Tigers host No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, another huge game in a rivalry that has become the biggest event in college football. Its obvious when you walk into the room that cer-tainly were playing a differ-ent team, LSU coach Les Miles said this week. Its a little fuller, and theres a little more attention to detail. Thats the way its supposed to be. The SEC has won the last six BCS championships, and the Crimson Tide has been rolling toward a third BCS title game in four sea-sons. Last season, losing 9-6 in overtime to LSU at home didnt keep Alabama out of the championship game, which it won 21-0 in an all-SEC rematch with the Tigers. But last year, Alabama got a break when LSU was the only unbeaten team in major college football. Matched against other one-loss teams, specifically Oklahoma State, the Tide got the nod. Right now, a second chance doesnt seem likely. There are three undefeated teams right behind the Tide in the BCS standings. Alabama is the only remaining unbeaten team in the SEC. A loss to LSU or any loss for that mat-ter, though this is the big-gest hurdle would likely drop the Tide behind the other highly ranked unbeat-en teams. That is assum-ing Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame all stay unbeaten. Even more potentially problematic for Alabama, a loss to LSU puts the Tide behind the Tigers in the SEC West race. With a vic-tory, LSU would become the SEC team best posi-tioned to play in the nation-al title game. Georgia and Florida would also be in the mix if either could win the SEC championship with only one overall loss. But with one loss, the SEC champion is going to need help in the form of losses by at least two of the other big three. This might seem like heresy to SEC fans, but in some ways it would be fitting. Only the SEC can keep the SEC from win-ning a national title. Its this scenario that made SEC Commissioner Mike Slive push for a playoff. As for the other three unbeatens, this weekend is a mixed bag. No. 2 Oregon (fourth in the BCS standings), plays at No. 18 Southern California. Even with the Trojans (6-2) not living up to their advanced billing, this will be the Ducks toughest challenge yet. No. 3 Kansas State (second in the BCS) is home to face Oklahoma State (6-2). Using two freshmen quar-terbacks hasnt stopped the Cowboys from being one of the best offenses in the country. They lead the nation in yards per game at 586, and figure to be a good test for a tough Wildcats defense. No. 4 Notre Dame (third in the BCS) has what looks to be the easiest game, with Pittsburgh (4-4) coming to South Bend, Ind. But the Fighting Irish have played close games all season, and the Panthers seem to be making progress under first-year coach Paul Chryst.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida tight end Jordan Reed (11) watches as the ball i s knocked out of his grasp by Georgias Jarvis Jones (29) during a game on Saturday. ASSOCIATED PRESSAlabama quarterback AJ McCarron (10) signals a play at the line of scrimmage during the first half against Mississippi State at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala on Saturday.Quarterback key in Alabama-LSU matchupBy JOHN ZENORAssociated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. A quarterback described as a game manager can often be perceived as someone whos mostly responsible for supervising plays and not making them. Unless the QB is AJ McCarron and he plays for Nick Saban. The coach of top-ranked Alabama considers it the highest praise. No. 5 LSU (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) would love to get a McCarron-like, efficient performance from Zach Mettenberger Saturday night in Baton Rouge where both passers will be supported by pun-ishing tailbacks and terrific defenses. McCarron has been the consummate game manag-er even with 18 touchdown passes. I dont think its fair to AJ that because I said hes a really good game man-ager for us that its like that means he doesnt do anything, Saban said. He does everything. I dont think you can be a good quarterback unless youre a really good game manager. Thats the ultimate compli-ment, to me. McCarron has been the nations most efficient passer with a quarterback rating of 182.4 for Alabama (8-0, 5-0). Hes thrown 262 passes without an intercep-tion dating back to last sea-son, second-longest in SEC history behind the 325-pass streak by Kentuckys Andre Woodson. McCarron wants to clear up what being a game man-ager means in his eyes. What I think and then what the media tries to make a game manager out to be is two totally different things, he said. I probably think more along the lines of coach Saban. A game manager can be anything. I mean, he can throw nine touchdowns in one game but he still managed the game. He could hand the ball off 47 times but still manage the game. I think coach, in that aspect, is saying hes taking what the defense is giving him and hes not making any real bonehead mistakes. And thats the biggest thing. People nowadays love to see the ball being slung around and everything but thats not our style of play. So Im going to, like what coach always, take what the defense gives me and ... eventually theyll give you the game. The strong-armed Mettenberger might still be finding his way toward the game manager role in his first year as starter. He hasnt completed 50 per-cent of his passes in any of the last three games all against ranked SEC teams and has one touchdown pass, two interceptions and a modest 403 passing yards during that stretch. Mettenberger has been intercepted a modest four times through eight games. Running back Michael Ford and his teammates are standing by their quarterback. He throws a little bad ball and everybody jumps on his back, Ford said. Weve just got to go out there and give him confidence. Its Mettenbergers first time playing in an Alabama-LSU confrontation. He knows the big-game drill, though. You have to be levelheaded, Mettenberger said. You cant get too jacked up or you will start throwing balls in the stands. You cant play with your tail tucked between legs or youll play too timid. Its a fine line, between looking too relaxed and being too jacked up. A quarterback has to do a good job keep-ing your emotions in check during the game.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2-3, 20124BSPORTSGators must fight predictabilityBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE There are plenty of adjectives to describe Floridas offense, which ranks 100th in the nation and managed just three field goals in a costly loss to rival Georgia last week. The best one might be predictable. The eighth-ranked Gators are running the ball on 78.1 percent of their first downs, the highest of any team in a Bowl Championship Series conference. Army, New Mexico, Air Force and Navy teams that run option schemes are the only programs in the entire Football Bowl Subdivision that run the ball more than Florida on first down. Probably a little predictable, Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease admitted this week. Now, were never going to get it back to balanced because the numbers are so skewed at this time in the season, but we kind of go on a game-to-game basis. The Gators (7-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) get a chance to be more balanced Saturday against Missouri (4-4, 1-4). Then again, facing the Tigers tal-ented defensive front might prompt the Gators to be even more cautious. Floridas run-pass ratio has been tilted even more over the past four games, with the Gators running the ball 81 percent of the time on first down. They ran 23 of 24 times on first down against South Carolina and 19 of 27 against Georgia. Obviously, we havent made that many plays in the passing game, quar-terback Jeff Driskel said. But we have confidence that when we get one-on-one matchups were going to be able to beat them. We have good receivers and we have good playmakers, and were just going to have to start hitting some big plays. Floridas predictability seemed like a fluke early in the season, especially since the offense was moving the ball pretty well behind running back Mike Gillislee. The senior led the Southeastern Conference in rushing for much of the year, but he has tailed off over the last three weeks. Gillislee has averaged just 60 yards rushing against Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Georgia. It has become clear that defenses are focused on stopping Gillislee, but that hasnt stopped Pease from calling his number on first down. Gillislee has accounted for more than half of Floridas first-down runs (56.4 percent). That num-ber increases to 64.4 per-cent over Floridas last four games. Its fine when the Gators are getting significant chunks on first down. But when theyre not, it leaves them in secondand third-and-long situations. And Florida is hardly equipped to handle those. Driskel holds the ball too long at times, struggling to make quick decisions. The offensive line has been shaky all season in pass protection, giving up 26 sacks. Running backs and tight ends need to be better at picking up blitzes. And the receiving corps has to get more separation, run more precise routes and not drop balls. And force feeding Floridas best option, tight end Jordan Reed, comes with problems, too. Theres coverage on him, Pease said. We had a couple in the (Georgia) game where we were going to him, but they had him sniffed out. Youve got to go to your alternatives. You cant just do things where its one guy because then what are you going to do? Theyve got an idea that hes kind of built into the game plan. Its there, but sometimes it isnt there, you know? When asked about the first-down numbers, coach Will Muschamp tried to blame them on certain situ-ations. But when reminded that eight games is a pretty significant sample size, he relented. Thats something were aware of, he said. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida kicker Caleb Sturgis (19) trips up Georgias M alcolm Mitchell (26) as he runs the ball up the field a fter catching a punt on Saturday at EverBank Field in Jacksonville. ASSOCIATED PRESSSouth Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore grabs his right knee after getting hit by Tennessees Eric Gordon during the first half of an NCAA college football game at Williams-Br ice Stadium in Columbia, S.C.Gamecocks moving on without LattimoreBy PETE IACOBELLIAssociated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. South Carolina running back Kenny Miles sees the same desire, the same drive and the same focus from the Gamecocks, even with tailback Marcus Lattimore on the sidelines. The Gamecocks (7-2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) have a much-needed week off before closing out league play at home against Arkansas on Nov. 10. Miles, a senior, will start in place of Lattimore, South Carolinas star tailback who was lost for the season after a gruesome knee injury last week against Tennessee. Lattimore dislocated his right knee and had severe ligament damage, an injury coach Steve Spurrier said would likely need more than one surgery to repair. Losing a leader and team captain like Lattimore is a blow, Miles said. But the Gamecocks have made it through this storm before, going 5-1 after Lattimore tore a ligament in his left knee midway through the 2011 season. Its definitely a tough situation, said Miles, the teams leading rusher in 2009 the season before Lattimore arrived. But weve still got the pieces, still got the people, still got the coaches. Were focused and ready to go. Lattimore, though, remains in the Gamecocks thoughts. Tight end Justice Cunningham has worn Lattimores No. 21 at prac-tice this week as a trib-ute, the way hes done with other injured teammates this year. Just to love for the boys, Cunningham said. Lattimore is the teams leading rusher with 662 yards and 11 touchdowns. His two primary backups this season, Miles and freshman Mike Davis, have 306 yards and two touch-downs combined. Defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said it was important for the players not to dwell on Lattimores absence during the teams workouts during the bye week. He says the focus has been on what went wrong on the field in the 38-35 victory over Tennessee and not about who wont be with them the rest of the way. I think the kids came out focused, Ward said. Weve watched the game tape and showed them the mistakes we made and showed them the places we can get bet-ter. I think they came out with a great mentality. Its hard to erase the memory of Lattimores gruesome injury for any-one who watched it hap-pen or saw him sobbing in pain and disappointment last Saturday. Several play-ers, including Miles, took part in an unprecedented rally of support on campus for Lattimore this past Monday, the tailbacks 21st birthday. The support has stretched across the SEC, from Tennessees players walking out to wish him well as Lattimore lay hurt on the turf to players like Auburn running back Tre Mason and LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery ded-icating their performances to the South Carolina run-ner. Thats no surprise, said Auburn coach Gene Chizik, who befriended Lattimore in the recruiting process and made the players final two schools. Chizik found a well-rounded, level-headed person who cared about the right things people, academics, faith and foot-ball. Hes a different guy, Chizik said. I think that hes not only a tremendous football player on the field, hes probably a better per-son off the field. ASSOCIATED PRESSKansas State quarterback Collin Klein (7) runs for a touchdown during the second half against Texas Tech in Manhattan, Kan on Saturday.Jets Tebow, K-States Klein lead parallel livesBy DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressMANHATTAN, Kan. Theyve never met, never even talked, but theyd probably be best of friends. Both of them were home schooled, both are rooted deeply in their Christian faith. Both were standout prep players who overcame funky throwing motions to develop into bruising, run-first quarter-backs for two of college footballs most accom-plished coaches. All that Collin Klein needs to do now is lead No. 3 Kansas State to a nation-al championship, stop by the Best Buy Theater in New York to accept the Heisman Trophy along the way, and the comparisons to former Florida star and current Jets backup Tim Tebow may never end. Ive never met him and Ive barely ever heard him speak, but watching him, you can see his team believes in him, Tebow said in an interview with The Associated Press. He has great leadership, great poise, awesome competi-tive excellence and hes a winner. At the end of games and in big situa-tions in games, he always comes through. Thats an awesome trait. Its one of the traits that defined Tebows career with the Gators. Just like Klein, who has developed under the sage-ly wisdom of Bill Snyder, Tebow leaned on the guid-ance of Urban Meyer to become one of the sports most dynamic players. Tebow threw for 3,286 yards, completed 66.9 per-cent of his passes, and had 32 touchdown passes with only six interceptions. But it was on the ground where he truly set himself apart, running for 895 yards and 23 touchdowns with the kind of power usually found in a fullback. He wound up taking home the Heisman Trophy. Looking back, Tebow recognizes the similarities between the 2007 season he put together and the two after that with the senior season that Klein is having in the Flint Hills. Hes on pace to throw for 2,649 yards with 20 touchdowns and just three interceptions this season, and would finish with 1,030 yards and 26 touch-downs on the ground. Numbers quite similar to Tebows Heisman season.
LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2-3, 2012 5B5B Woods says getting back to No. 1 will take timeAssociated PressSINGAPORE On the two-year anniversary of los-ing his No. 1 ranking, Tiger Woods said Thursday that winning was the best way for him to get back to the top. And that could take some time. Four players have been No. 1 over the last two years. The current top ranking belongs to Rory McIlroy, who has widened his lead by winning the U.S. PGA Championship and consec-utive tournaments during the FedEx Cup playoffs. McIlroy was runner-up last week against a strong field in Shanghai. Rory is playing a lot of events, and so am I, toward the beginning of the year, Woods said in Singapore, where he staged a youth clinic on putting. Its about winning golf tourna-ments. Thats how I got to No. 1, thats how Rory got to No. 1. Youve got to win golf tournaments, and when you dont, youve got to be con-sistent and finish high. Im looking forward to that. Woods won three times this year on the U.S. tour, though it took time for his trademark consistency to develop. He did not have back-to-back finishes in the top 10 until the British Open (tie for third) and the Bridgestone Invitational (tie for eighth). He hasnt fin-ished out of the top 10 since The Barclays in August, a streak of four tournaments. Woods ends his 2012 sea-son at his World Challenge in California in the last week of November. Things are progressing nicely, Woods said. Last year I was 127th on the money list, this year I was second. So I think thats a pretty good improvement in a year. And given that Im healthy, Im really looking forward to next year. He decided not to play the HSBC Champions this week in China, saying he was too tired to prepare properly. Woods will have played 24 tournaments this year, his most since 2005, which includes an unofficial event in Turkey and the Ryder Cup. Woods confirmed he will not play in January at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, where he last competed in 2005. That will give him six full weeks off after his World Challenge. Doing these things are easy, Woods said of the clinic at Marina Bay Sands. Competing and getting ready for another golf tour-nament ... I just didnt want to do that. Ive got four more rounds, which is my tourna-ment in LA, and Im done until Abu Dhabi next year, so Im looking forward to having this extended break. This is like my offseason now, and Im really looking forward to just getting away from it. Competing and playing golf tournaments the playoffs, the Ryder Cup and a lot of other tournaments its been a lot. McIlroy also is skipping the World Golf Championship this week, though he will finish his season in Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai as he tries to match Luke Donalds feat of winning money titles on the U.S. PGA Tour and European Tour in the same season. Of all the legitimate rivals for Woods over the years, McIlroy is the first player who is younger by more than 13 years. Woods said it would take time to deter-mine whether the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland is the best he has ever faced. McIlroy beat Woods in an 18-hole exhibition in China on Monday. ASSOCIATED PRESSTiger Woods hits a ball out of the bunker on the 18th hol e during his 18-hole medal match against Rory McIlroy at the Lake Jinsha Golf Club in Zhengzhou, China, on Monday.
6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2-3, 2012 DEAR ABBY: We recently learned that our son-in-law, Mike, was fired from his job as a community service officer with the county. He committed second-degree criminal sexual assault on two women inmates he was supervising and is now in the process of going to court. We hope hell be convicted and sent away so our daughter can put her life together. This has torn our family apart. We dont know how to get through to her that she deserves so much bet-ter than this. She refuses to divorce him even though this was happening during their marriage and her pregnancy, She claims shes not being abused, but we have seen how controlling Mike has been throughout their courtship and marriage. How can we help her realize that life without him would be so much bet-ter and that sex offenders are never really cured? They tell us they are constantly praying and that God has already forgiven him for what he has done. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated. -WORRIED PARENTS DEAR WORRIED PARENTS: Your son-in-laws abuse of his authority is appalling. But as long as hes still around and con-stantly praying (probably more for a sympathetic jury than forgiveness for what he did to those women), you wont get through to your daughter. Fortunately, the justice system has sentencing guidelines for men who abuse their power the way Mike has, and he may be going away for a long, long time. Once hes gone, start talking to your daughter about counseling to deal with the trauma she has been through, and let a mental health professional shed some light on this. If the message comes from a person with no bias, it stands a better chance of getting through. P.S. I wholeheartedly agree she would be better off without him. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I live in Arizona where the temper-ature can hit 100 degrees and we get 300-plus days of sunshine every year. I always have my 5-month-old son wear his sunglasses when he goes outside, and I get the most asinine comments from total strangers! Everything from Can I have his auto-graph? to Does he think hes cool? How can they be so dumb? People, tiny eyes need protection too! -A NEW MOMMY DEAR NEW MOMMY: The individuals you describe arent dumb; they are making a failed attempt at humor. However, I showed your letter to Beverly Hills oph-thalmologist Peter Cornell, M.D., who told me: Its ideal for everyone -regardless of age -to protect their eyes from ultraviolet light. And its advisable for babies to be protected when theyre outside. But it is NOT as crucial with children as it is for older individuals, because their bodies are better able to repair oxida-tive damage. That said, ultraviolet light is not the friend of anyones eyes. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I was married recently but kept my maiden name. As wedding gifts, we received two sets of towels monogrammed with my husbands last initial, and a plaque for the front of the house -House of (his last name), Established 2012. While we appreciate this generosity, Im sure we will not put the items to use. (The plaque was from a close family member on my husbands side who knew I would be keeping my name.) How do we handle this? -PERPLEXED NEWLYWED IN CLEVELAND DEAR PERPLEXED: Heres how: Consign the plaque to your husbands man-cave (or toss it), use the towels for something other than display, and write a gracious thank-you to the family members who gave them to you for their thoughtfulness. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Im 14 and my dad is in the military, so hes away from home most of the time. I try to help Mom out as best I can, knowing shes stressed with Dad gone. Whenever she gets mad at me, she calls me a brat, selfish or a jerk. She even told me once or twice that if she was my age, she wouldnt want to be my friend because of the way I act. Abby, please help me. I have always tried my hard-est to do whats right. How do I handle this without crying myself to sleep? -FEELS LIKE A FAILURE DEAR FEELS LIKE A FAILURE: Sometimes when people are under stress, as your mother is right now, they say things they dont mean. And sometimes when teens are under stress, they can act out in other ways. A way to handle this would be to wait until your mother has calmed down and talk to her about the effect that her name-calling is having on you. Explain that youre trying the hardest you can in a difficult situation, and then both of you should apolo-gize to each other. The bruises that unkind words can leave sometimes out-last those that are physical. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My best friend, Kathie, has betrayed me. This may sound silly, but my hus-band and I have a sort of coat of arms. Ever since we started writing letters and notes back and forth, he has always drawn a character on them, and it turned into our symbol. Kathie is in the armed forces and I made her my maid of honor. But when she showed up, she had that same character tat-tooed on her back! My husband was upset she chose something so inti-mate of ours as a tattoo, and a few people have noticed it as well. I dont know how to handle this. It feels like a slap in the face. -ROBBED IN FLORIDA DEAR ROBBED: It isnt a slap in the face -its actually the ultimate com-pliment to your husbands artistry and creativity. And while it would have been nice if Kathie had first asked permission, unless the symbol was trademarked she was free to use it, as is anyone else who sees it on her and admires it. Because her tattoo is offensive to you, ask her to keep it covered when shes with you. Whats done is done. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im a 38year-old wife and mother who has been happily married for 16 years. My young son recently had a medical emergency in his class at school, and his teacher, Tom, stepped in and saved him. Since then I cant stop thinking about Tom. I love my husband and I dont plan on seeing or contact-ing Tom in any way other than as my sons teacher. How do I stop thinking about him? Please help. -GOING CRAZY IN TENNESSEE DEAR GOING CRAZY: First of all, youre NOT going crazy. You are grate-ful to the hero who saved your son. The more you try to smother your thoughts about Tom, the more they will happen. The most effective way I know of to deal with this would be to talk out your thoughts with someone.

8B LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2-3, 20128BNASCAR NOTEBOOK Martinsville rattles Truck SeriesIn both the Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck Series,the late-season races at TalladegaSuperspeedway and Martinsville Speedway areregarded as championships wild cardsbecause ofthe possibility of wrecks that can shuffle thestandings. So it wasnt too surprising when Ty Dillon,the points leader by one marker entering the Kroger200 at Martinsville,blew a tire and hit the wallwith 50 laps to go,leaving him with a 28th-placefinish and dropping him to second in the stand-ings,21 points behind James Buescher. The new points leader had problems of his own early in the race,falling a lap down,but hebounced back to finish sixth. Everybody thought Talladega would be the big shakeup race,Buescher told reporters after therace.I was more worried about Talladega than Iwas this one,but I guess I was wrong. Dillon said he isnt giving up,even with just three races left to run. Well keep digging in Texas next weekend and make up some ground,he said. Timothy Peters,who started on the pole at Martinsville and finished seventh,remains in thetitle hunt as hes 25 points out of the lead.Peters Red Horse Racing teammate Parker Kligerman,who finished ninth at Martinsville,is fourth in thestandings,36 back. Denny Hamlin won the Kroger 200.Earnhardt learns from injury Dale Earnhardt Jr.told reporters at Martinsville Speedway last week that he learned a lot during the two weeks he was outof his No.88 Chevrolet because of concussionssuffered in a crash during testing at Kansasand in a wreck in a race at Talladega. Ive learned a ton,just about what Ive gone through,he said.I feel like Im a lot smarter,alot more prepared,and understand the situationa lot better now than I did beforehand Its been a good experience.Its something Id rather not have gone through;I learned a lotfrom it. He said that because of his recent experience, hell be quicker to seek medical help in thefuture if he believes hes had a concussion. It changes the way I feel about it to where if I know Ive suffered another concussion,or if Ihave symptoms after an accident,Im definitelygoing to be a lot more responsible about it,hesaid.I can understand peoples opinions thatthey would try to push through it,or they would ignore it to stay in the car because I did thesame thing in the past Some concussions are really bad,and I dont care how tough you think you are,and yourmind is not working the way it is supposed to,itscares the [expletive] out of you. You are not going to think about race cars. You arent going to think about trophies.You arenot going to think about your job.Youre goingto be thinking about what do I got to do to getmy brain working the way it was before.Thatsgoing to jump right to the top of the priority list I promise you. Earnhardt showed no signs of his injury at Martinsville,where he raced among the leadersuntil a late-race shuffle dropped him to 21st atthe finish.Aric Almirola: We can do thisFor the second straight week,Aric Almirola had a strong run in the No.43 Ford for Richard PettyMotorsports.A week after qualifying fifth andleading 69 laps at Kansas Speedway before acrash took him out,he finished a season-bestfourth at Martinsville Speedway.His Martinsvillefinish tied his career-best Cup finish fromHomestead-Miami Speedway in 2010. He gave his crew chief much of the credit for his strong performances of the past two weeks. This just goes to prove that we can do this, Almirola said.Five weeks ago they switched crewchiefs and gave me Todd Parrott and from thatpoint forward Ive been having the most fun Iveever had at a race track. Weve been running so good.[At Martinsville] we made chicken salad out of you know what,andthats the kind of stuff that Todd Parrott can doand all these guys on his team.

Since his first start in the 1988 Daytona 500,Roush has won 130 Cup races and twochampionships,but his first start gave littleindication of the future success,as he point-ed out to reporters at Martinsville. After fielding numerous entries in road racing,Roush made his first Cup race with MarkMartin driving his No.6 Ford,and RobinPemberton,now NASCARs vice president forcompetition and racing development,as thecrew chief.At that time,Roush was aNASCAR outsider,literally and figuratively. We didnt have a garage to start with, and then they finally gave us one down atthe very end when somebody who had morestanding didnt come,he said.Weveclimbed the ladder. In that first start,Roushs Ford dropped out after 19 laps because of an overheatingengine,long before Bobby Allison beat hisson Davey to the checkered flag in one ofthe more memorable Daytona 500 finishesof all time. Throughout their first season together, Roush and Martin did provide glimpses of their future success,but they were few andfar between.They got their first top-10 fin-ish with a sixth-place run at Darlington inthe fifth race of the season and their firsttop-five was a runner-up at Bristol the nextrace.But their average finish was 19.1,andthey did not finish 10 races. Even for most of the 1989,that first win continued to elude them. I wasnt sure we were going to win in the second year until the fall race atRockingham when Mark won,Roush said.The sponsors I had were teetering,but thatwin gave them the green to go forward withus another year.All of the sponsors I had tostart with were one-year programs,so thatcemented a relationship with Folgers,andthen Valvoline quickly wanted in,so wewere on our way. In 1990,Martin won three races,the first year for multiple wins for Roush,and in1992,Roush fielded multiple entries for thefirst time,with Wally Dallenbach Jr.joiningthe team to drive the No.16 Ford.Now,theteam fields cars for Greg Biffle,CarlEdwards,Matt Kenseth and occasionallyRicky Stenhouse Jr.and is a regular con-tender for victory. Roush also has 131 wins in the Nationwide Series and 50 more in the Camping World Truck Series. Little by little we gained the experience, and I had enough good people around tomake the important judgments that led usto becoming a viable multiple-car team,Roush said.It was really a blessing for thetotal number of victories weve got.If youinclude our road racing wins and otherNASCAR series,were at about 450 victoriesnow,so running the trucks,Nationwide andCup all three and having the successweve had has done a lot to bolster our con-fidence to help us cement,bring along spon-sors,and form the basis for the successweve had. And its been a success not only as far as trophies are concerned,but on the businessside,too.In addition to preparing cars forhis own team,Roush provided cars andtechnology to other teams including RichardPetty Motorsports and Wood BrothersRacing. Weve had to look at a series,look at a race car and the rules,and then considerthe opportunity to make a viable businessout of it by selling the technology and sell-ing the success to other people who wouldlike to bask in it,he said.So the fact wevebeen able to survive for 25 years in Cup rac-ing is more important to me than 300 wins.
