FEAST continued on 3A Water district looks at springs health From staff reports LIVE OAK As part of its ongo ing efforts to protect springs and to restore impaired springs, the Suwannee River Water Management District and the Florida Geological Survey, an office within the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, met to discuss spring shed delineation. FGS described various methods that are used to determine the boundaries of springsheds in the District. Presently, only a handful of springsheds have been delin eated. The surface water basins and ground water basins that con tribute to the discharge of a spring is called springshed. The District has the highest concentration of springs and con tains the most first one magnitude of springs in the state. According to the Districts Water Resources Director Erich Marzolf, delineating springsheds helps to prioritize and focus attention for protecting and restoring springs. The high density of springs throughout the District makes it complicated to delineate spring sheds for each spring. Marzolf explained that in some areas where there a cluster of springs it may be best to delineate a spring shed corridor rather than trying to determine individual spring sheds. Black Friday creeps into holiday By ANNE DINNOCENZIO and TOM KRISHER AP Business Writers NEW YORK Put down that turkey leg. Its time to shop. No, really. Stores typically open in the wee hours of the morning on the day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday, named for the period when stores tra ditionally turn a profit for the year. But Black Friday openings have crept earlier and earlier over the past few years. Now, stores from Wal-Mart to Toys R Us are opening their doors on Thanksgiving evening, hop ing Americans will be will ing to shop soon after they finish their pumpkin pie. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will have early bird shop ping specials at 8 p.m., two hours earlier than a year ago. Target Corp. is opening its doors at 9 p.m. on the holiday, three hours earlier than last year. Sears, which didnt open on Thanksgiving last year, is opening during from 8 p.m. and will stay open until 10 p.m. on Black Friday. And Toys R Us will be opening at 8 p.m., an hour earlier than last year. Its an effort by stores to make shopping more DELIVERY continued on 3A HOLIDAY continued on 3A

By turning the ani mated characters three-dimensional for their holiday special. In a tribute to classic fare such as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the SpongeBob SquarePants crew has been re-imagined as puppets and put through their comedy paces for stop-motion photography. The story line as dreamed up by Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob, and his musical collaborator Andy Paley: The denizens of Bikini Bottom are suddenly rude because of expo sure to jerktonium, a plot by naughty Plankton to get on Santas (voiced by guest star John Goodman) nice list. Plankton wants to put everyone on their worst behavior when they should be on their best behavior, and zany mayhem ensues, Kenny said. Its a SpongeBob Christmas! debuts 9:30 p.m. today on CBS, fol lowed by an encore on the shows home network, Nickelodeon, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9. Promoter: Chris Brown cancels Guyana show GEORGETOWN, Guyana Organizers say American R&B star Chris Brown has canceled a stadium concert in Guyana after local protests over his 2009 beat ing of then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was billed to headline a Dec. 26 show. But he drew the ire of wom ens rights groups and opposition lawmakers who said Brown would not be welcome in Guyana three years after his assault of Barbadian superstar Rihanna. Concert promoter Hits & Jams Entertainment said Thursday that Brown backed out, citing discomfort with the protests. In 2009, Brown hit, choked and bit Rihanna during an argument in Los Angeles. He later pleaded guilty to assault. Since then, Brown has worked to repair his image, undergoing violence counseling and putting out a new album. He has a duet with Rihanna on her recently released record. Madonna lawsuit dismissed in Russia ST. PETERSBURG, Russia A Russian court on Thursday dis missed a lawsuit that sought millions of dollars in damages from Madonna for allegedly traumatizing minors by speaking up for gay rights during a concert in St. Petersburg. The ruling came after a oneday hearing that bordered on the farcical. During it, plaintiffs claimed that Madonnas socalled propaganda of perversion would negatively affect Russias birthrate and erode the nations defense capability by depriving the country of future soldiers. At one point, the judge threatened to expel journalists if they laughed too much. In the end, the Moskovsky district court in St. Petersburg threw out the Trade Union of Russian Citizens lawsuit and the $10.7 million it sought from the singer for allegedly exposing youths to homosexual pro paganda.

Vet gets $1.25M award from VA MIAMI An Air Force veteran and his wife have won a combined $1.25 million lawsuit against the U.S. government because he likely contracted hepati tis C at the Miami Veterans Administration Medical Center. U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan ruled Wednesday after a nonjury trial that the centers staff didnt properly clean colo noscopy equipment, prob ably causing 70-year-old Robert Metzlers infection. The Miami Herald said that Metzler and his wife, Lucy Ann Metzler, had sought $30 million.

FEAST: 500-plus were expected Continued From Page 1A convenient for Americans, who still face economic uncertainty. Many shoppers are worried about high unemployment and a package of tax increases and spending cuts known as the fiscal cliff that will take effect in January unless Congress passes a budget deal by then. At the same time, Americans have grown more com fortable shopping on websites such as Amazon.com, where they can get cheaper prices and buy from the comfort of their home or office cubicle. Early data from IBM Smarter Commerce show that as of noon EST, online sales for Thanksgiving are up 14.3 percent from last year, with just over a quarter of consumers using a mobile device to visit a retailers site, up from 15.8 percent in 2011. That has put pressure on brick-andmortar stores, who can make up to 40 percent of their annual revenue during the two-month holiday shopping season, to compete. Thats becoming more difficult: the National Retail Federation, an industry trade group, estimates that overall sales in November and December will rise 4.1 percent this year to $586.1 billion, or about flat with last years growth. But the online part of that is expected to rise 15 percent to $68.4 billion, according to Forrester Research. As a result, brick-and-mortar retailers are trying everything they can to lure con sumers into stores by making shopping as easy as possible. In addition to expand ing their hours into Thanksgiving, many are offering free layaways and shipping, matching the cheaper prices of online rivals and updating their mobile shopping apps with more information. Michael Prothero, 19, and his friend, Kenny Fullenlove, 21, have been camped outside a Best Buy store in Toledo, Ohio, since Monday night, waiting to get 40inch televisions, some video games and a low-priced tablet computer mainly for relatives. They came early to make sure they got the deals, even though the next person in line didnt arrive until almost 24 hours later. Better safe than sorry, Prothero said. They know theyll miss Thanksgiving dinner with their families, but say its worth it. Every retailer wants to beat everyone else, said C. Britt Beemer, chairman of Americas Research Group, a research firm based in Charleston, S.C. Shoppers love it. Retailers are hoping that the Thanksgiving openings will draw shop pers who prefer to head to stores after their turkey dinner rather than braving the crowds early the next morning. Overall, about 17 percent of shoppers plan to take advantage of Thanksgiving hours, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers-Goldman Sachs survey of 1,000 consumers conducted from Nov. 15 to Nov. 18. Last year, that figure was 16 percent. For Black Friday, traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year, 33 per cent intend to shop that day, slightly down from 34 percent in 2011. HOLIDAY: Black Friday continues its onward creep, right into Thanksgiving Continued From Page 1A DELIVERY: P.O. tries something new Continued From Page 1A competitors. If things run smoothly, the program will quickly expand next year to other big cities such as Boston, Chicago and New York. It follows similar efforts by eBay, Amazon.com, and most recently Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which charges a $10 flat rate for same-day delivery. The delivery program, called Metro Post, seeks to build on the post offices double-digit growth in package volume to help offset steady declines in first-class and standard mail. Operating as a limited experiment for the next year, it is project ed to generate between $10 million and $50 million in new revenue from deliver ies in San Francisco alone, according to postal regulatory filings, or up to $500 million, if expanded to 10 cities. The filings do not reveal the mail agen cys anticipated expenses to implement same-day service, which can only work profitably if retailers have enough mer chandise in stores and warehouses to be quickly delivered to nearby residences in a dense urban area. The projected $500 million in potential revenue, even if fully realized, would represent just fraction of the record $15.9 billion annual loss that the Postal Service reported last week.
F eminist author Naomi Wolf argues in a column on cnn.com that the real culprits of the Gen. David Petraeus/Paula Broadwell affair are the federal Patriot and Espionage acts. In Sexual Privacy Under Threat in a Surveillance Society, Wolf writes that without these, the affair would have been left private, and we would all have been better off if it had. Her stated fear is that as a country we are losing our sexual privacy to government oversight and thats devastating to the human condition. Wolf is the author of Vagina: A New Biography that radical-ly reframes how we understand the vagina. Partly because of people like her we already have lost a sense of sexual privacy, and with it sexual dignity, in our culture. Thanks to the so-called sexual revolution, who needs to worry about the government getting at our secrets as if it cares when we offer them up so freely ourselves and to people we dont even know? I wish there were sexual privacy. I wish other moms Im barely acquainted with wouldnt casually share with me things like theyve found someone terrific to stay with their kids for the nights they spend at a boyfriends house. I dont want to walk into Abercrombie & Fitch with my teens and find poster-sized depictions of adolescents on the verge of copulating. Im not interested in public declara-tions of anyones sexual orien-tation. Id rather not read from another middle-aged woman writing a column for CNN that in her dating life shes sexted with boyfriends and her grown daughters saw the messages. Isnt that charming? Its the daughters busting the mom. Hee-hee. ... I am no prude, and Im certainly not talking here about intimate, open conversations with close friends, trusted con-fidantes or romantic partners. Im talking about throwing up details about what should be our private sexual lives, our very selves, as if we are all liv-ing real-time episodes of Sex and the City in front of every-one we meet. ... Our sexual lives should be private, not in the sense of being secret but in the sense of being sacred. Instead, Wolf and her feminist friends have encouraged women in particu-lar to treat their sexual selves as casually as yesterdays news, and, sadly, this often means sharing their sexual lives as if they are todays headlines. ... Wolf is wrong about the specifics of the Petraeus/Broadwell affair. As CIA direc-tor, Petraeus could have been blackmailed with such informa-tion with huge implications for our national security. So its right and, anyway, prob-ably inevitable that it was revealed. In contrast, when Wolf writes in her CNN commentary that (I)t is hard to imagine fully what the loss of sexual privacy means to private life and to the human condition, she has no idea how right she is. Sexual privacy not theissue OUR OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY On this date:In 1765, Frederick County, Md. became the first colonial entity to repudiate the British Stamp Act. In 1804, the 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce, was born in Hillsboro, N.H. In 1887, actor Boris Karloff was born William Henry Pratt in London. In 1903, Enrico Caruso made his American debut at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, appearing in Rigoletto. In 1910, American-born physician Hawley Harvey Crippen was hanged at Pentonville Prison in London for murder-ing his wife, Cora. (Crippens mistress, Ethel Le Neve, was acquitted in a separate trial of being an accessory.) In 1936, Life, the photojournalism magazine created by Henry R. Luce, was first pub-lished. In 1942, during World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a measure establishing the U.S. Womens Coast Guard Reserve. In 1943, during World War II, U.S. forces seized control of Tarawa and Makin atolls from the Japanese. In 1971, the Peoples Republic of China was seated in the U.N. Security Council. R alph hates his job, and comes home grouchy and com-plaining every day. Nothing goes right. His resentment and anger poi-son his attitude and his choices. Jerry pops open another beer, and plops down in front of the television to watch others play professional sports, while he slowly loses strength and his own abilities to play those sports, and gains fat. Joy (a misnomer!) stays in an unhappy and degrading relation-ship, with little jabs and criti-cisms, and accepts the downhill slide of her self-confidence and self-esteem, and feels like she really doesnt deserve anything better. Andrew retreats from life after he retires, and gradually surrenders to his aches and pains. He spends more time in bed, and chooses a wheelchair instead of making efforts to restore or maintain his physical fitness and health. Could any of this be happening to you? It can happen so gradually you may not even notice it. Is it time to take charge of your life, and turn it around? Take a good look at your life, and check out how developing your own lifestyle can help. Whats the difference between life, and lifestyle? Life is everything. Its what youre born with in body and mind, what you learn during your lifetime, a total of all your experiences, things that happen in your life, the joys and trag-edies, everyone you meet, and all the problems and challenges you run across. Lifestyle is probably the most important part of your life; one that you can do the most about. I believe that every second of your life is really full of choices and opportunities! You can take charge of your lifestyle, rec-ognize your choices, spot the challenges and opportunities, and build the lifestyle you really want for yourself. Given your individual and unique situation and circum-stances, and your limitations, its within your power to move towards building the lifestyle and the life of your dreams. How does that sound to you? Here are things you can do to build that better life: Q Want it. Dont be afraid to let your imagination reach for your dreams. Q Make major choices. What do you want your life to be about? Would you like to find your purpose, reach for self-fulfillment, or to make the most of your skills, talents, abilities, knowledge, and your dreams? Q Research the areas of your interest. Read. Talk to people who can help and advise a librarian, tech geeks, teachers or advisors, hobbyists, experts, people advanced in the direc-tions of your interests, friends, and family. You could take a class. Q Share your dreams and interests. Seek support from supportive friends, and avoid the negative dream-killers. Q Develop plans to advance towards those dreams. List steps to make it happen; in order, and assign a tentative deadline for each step. Take those first steps. Q Keep flexible. Use your progress to evaluate and revise your plans, and to motivate you to invest more efforts. Keep a vision of that dream lifestyle in your headlights. With each little change in your lifestyle, youre building that better life for yourself. You owe that to yourself, those around you, and all of us. Enjoy it. Have a great life. Life, or lifestyle? L ooking for a special gift for that hard-to-buy-for person on your shopping list? How about a planet? Astronomers are now convinced that there are poten-tially millions of orphan planets, unclaimed by any star system, floating free in our galaxy. The closest one is a gas giant the size of Jupiter but with four to seven times the mass a rela-tively close 100 light years from Earth. It is near the constellation Dorado, but it is not a part of that system. Instead, it is an indepen-dent, unattached planet floating aimlessly well, we say aimless-ly, but maybe it has something in mind through space. These free-floating planets were confirmed in 2009 by observatories in Hawaii and Chile, and since they have no star of their own to provide reflected light and are compara-tively young, they are identified by the residual heat from their creation. As astronomers study the unattached planets, they are entertaining the possibility that there are more of these orphans floating through space than stars. Some are captured by solar systems and begin orbiting like regular planets. But others float quite independently through space. Some astronomers question whether they are technically planets since they dont orbit a star. Their discovery is recent enough that astronomers havent settled on a name for them. But the tech-nically correct name accorded to them by the International Astronomical Union, planetary mass object or planemo, just doesnt cut it. Astronomers are closer and closer to finding Earth-like plan-ets. Someday they may find an orphan Earth clone, and then with capabilities we dont yet have, bring it back to our own solar system as a backup. Just in case we screw up really badly with the planet we already have. Someone has to claim those orphans.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com W ith each pass-ing year, the Christmas shopping sea-son encroaches further on our national day of thanks. This year, Black Friday actually began Thursday evening for many retailers. And for folks camping outside stores days in advance of the mega-sales, Thanksgiving has long since been eclipsed alto-gether. Some see this as further evidence of the decline of civiliza-tion. Could be.Or it might be a sign of justplain folks trying that much harder to get by during our stubbornly persistent economic downturn. FDR moved the whole holiday back a week in 1939 to lengthen the Christmas shopping season, and was pilloried without mercy in the press and beyond. Thomas Taggart, then mayor of Atlantic City, called the newly-positioned holiday Franksgiving in derisive hom-age to the president. Congress eventually saw the necessity of Roosevelts actions, however, and in 1941 declared Thanksgiving the fourth (as opposed to the last) Thursday of November. What were dealing with now may not rival the Great Depression in devastation or scope, but the principle remains the same. Thanksgiving is one of our most cherished holidays. Having a day set aside for that purpose marks us as a grateful people, full well aware of what we have even in years when we may have just a little less than we had the year before. The last thing we want is for any American to forget even for a minute the many blessings bestowed on our beloved land. In reality, every day should be one of thanksgiving. If that spirit doesnt already dwell in our hearts, no amount of turkey and dressing as opposed to half-off sales will make much difference.

OBITUARTY
FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, November 23-24, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V You can have assurance of salvation Funerals benefit the livingT hese days in which we live are filled with uncertainty. We have an economy that is uncertain, a government that is uncertain, world peace is certainly an uncertainty; especially with the things going on with Israel. There is so much uncertainty going on we could not record them all. Today with so much uncertainty where can one find some assurance? The place to turn for assurance is Gods Word. I John 5:13 says These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eter-nal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. As I visit from church to church and talk to people, almost daily I hear someone say I hope I am saved, I hope I make it, I am trying to get to heaven, etc, etc. Many have no assurance of their salvation. Webster defines assurance as meaning a pledge or guar-antee: the state of being sure or certain; insure against risk; security, servitude; confidence. In the realm of salvation, the word assurance occurring six times in the Bible, means full of confidence, and expresses the guarantee the believer has that he is forever secure. As Dr. Scofield expresses it, Assurance is the believers full conviction that, through the work of Christ alone, received by faith, he is in possession of a salvation in which he will be eternally kept. And this assurance rests only upon the Scripture promise to him who believes. The Biblical statement of this vital Bible truth is given by Isaiah The work of righteous-ness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quiet-ness and confidence forever. This assurance of salvation is plainly written over the pages of the New Testament. Christ and His apostles lived in the air of certainty. Doubt in a regener-ated heart is everywhere con-demned. The epistles glow with the truth that we may know we possess salvation. They present a tenor of joy in a present expe-rience, but the tragedy is that, while all who are saved have the right to assurance, all do not experience it. As a letter can be written, and yet now sealed, so grace may be written within the heart, but faith is not strong enough to set the seal of assurance to the accomplishment of the Holy Spirit. Faith in the heart, how-ever, should appear in the fruit of assurance. Do I believe in once saved, always saved? Yes, with all my heart! John 3:16 says for those who believe they would have everlasting life. If it was not everlasting Jesus could not have said it was. If any sin could cause you to lose your salvation, then any sin would. If I did not have assurance of eternal life, then I would have to spend all my time taking care of me and would have no time for anyone else. I John 1:8 says: we all sin; and if we dont do what I John 1:9 says, then we will suffer the consequences of the sin but never lose our salvation. I John says that we can know we have eternal life. If you dont know, maybe you dont. Make certain today that you do. I t has been said that funer-als are for the living and not for the dead. Solomon in his book on life under the sun (better known as Ecclesiastes) said that it is bet-ter to go to the house of mourn-ing than to go to the house of feasting, because that is the end of every man, and the living takes it to heart (Ecclesiastes 7:2). So how does a funeral benefit the living? As people gather for the viewing, they begin to think about all the things that the deceased did in their life. There are some joyous as well as sad moments; there is laughter as well as cry-ing. If the deceased is an older person, say a mom or dad, then we think about all the things they did for us. If the deceased is a young person we think about all the happiness they brought to our lives. There is the con-stant sharing with each other about the loved one; a time of reminiscing of days gone by. A full range of emotions are experi-enced by all. As time moves closer for the actual service to begin a differ-ent ambiance replaces the cel-ebration; the mood is now one of thinking about the deceased no longer being with us. The finality of their life begins to sink in. Our thoughts begin to turn inward and we sense our own feelings. Solomon would encourage us to think about ourselves. He would want us to think that one day people will be having a ser-vice for us. We will be the one in the casket. We will be the one about whom everyone has been reminiscing. We will be the one that is leaving. Life needs to have its joyous moments. There needs to be lots of laughter filling our days; with-out it life would be extremely hard. However, to never think about the more somber things in life, like our death, is not a healthy situation either. We need to spend some time thinking about what is going to happen to us after we die. Hopefully it will cause us to rethink some things that we are doing while we are living. When we meditate upon our choices about what will happen to us after we die, there seems to be only two choices; we cease to exist or we continue to exist. If we cease to exist then there is nothing to worry about in this life. Lets eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may die. However, if we continue to exist, the question is where? Spending some time thinking about this question should cause us to investigate what will happen to me. We rightfully plan for trips that we take. Why would we not plan for the trip that we will take after we die? The Bible (Luke 16:19-31) gives two choices; a place of tor-ment and a place of comfort. The Bible also informs us that our life on this earth will determine where we will live after we die. So, where are we planning on liv-ing after we die? Granted it is hard to think about this subject, but it is as much a part of life as anything else that we meditate upon from a biblical perspective. Going to funerals is good for the living and the activity will only benefit us if we utilize the occasion to take it to heart. May the next funeral you attend be a long time in coming, but when it does may it benefit you by causing you to think this is the end of every man who has lived under the sun, including me.

LAKE CITY REPORTER FAITH & VALUES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23-24, 2012 7A7AReligion Everyone has a perspective Would you please pray for me?E veryone has a per-spective. All you need to do in order to be convinced of this fact is to ask two or three different people to describe the same thing to you. For example, the most effective way to get the whole story in marriage counseling is to talk to the husband and wife sepa-rately, and then put the pieces together to form one picture of what is really happening. Generally, our perspectives are formed as we look through the lens of our own understanding, experiences, values, and beliefs. If we remember this, it is much easier to understand someone elses perspective, especially when it is in opposition to our own. In John 4:1-3, the Bible records the following situation: The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptiz-ing more disciples than John (the Baptist), although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. In order to understand all that was going on in these few vers-es, lets check out the perspec-tives of everyone involved: Pharisees: We often label the Pharisees as bad guys but from their perspective, they were serving God and following tradition. However, tradition can sometimes keep us from recog-nizing God at work right in front of us. These religious leaders resented Jesus popularity almost as much as they resented the fact that His message challenged much of their teachings.. It is possible they thought that Jesus left Judea because He heard of their displeasure and was afraid of them. In any case, they were probably very glad that He left and hoped that would be the end of their trouble. Jesus: Although Jesus was gaining disciples, it was actually the disciples who were baptizing, and not Jesus himself. According to many verses in the four gos-pels, Jesus did not challenge the Pharisees opposition because it was not yet the right time. He was confident of His mission and as we read in John 4:4, Jesus left Judea because He had a very important meeting with a Samaritan woman. John the Baptist: After reading John 4:1-3, if anyone should be concerned over Jesus gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, wouldnt it would be John? However, the Bible records Johns answer to this very ques-tion when some of his own disciples seemed concerned about the same issue: He (Jesus) must become greater; I must become less. (John 3:30) John the Baptist was able to answer this with confidence because he was very clear about the purpose of his ministry. John 1:29 reveals this purpose: (T)he reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel. John understood that Jesus was here on a mission much bigger than simply compet-ing with ministry numbers! Jesus Disciples: Remember these were the ones actually doing the baptizing. They under-stood what was going on very clearly because they had left everything to follow Jesus. In John 1:35-42 we find that two of Jesus disciples actually started out as disciples of John: John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, Look, the Lamb of God! When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. One of the two was Andrew and, The first thing Andrew did was to find his broth-er Simon and bring him to Jesus. Jesus immediately changed Simons name to Peter and then proceeded to change his life! No wonder these disciples were bap-tizing they had experienced the power of God through a relationship with Jesus and they wanted others to know! The different perspectives found in these verses give us the big picture and the whole truth: Only Jesus can change a life the rest of us have the option of pointing the way or standing in the way. What is your perspec-tive? Because every heart matters. Angie W eakened by ill-ness, discour-aged by the time it was taking to feel better, John turned and asked, the minister to pray for him. The minister held his hand, they bowed and prayed together. Prayer seemed to help as a smile came to Johns face, and he thanked the servant of God for coming by and helping. Serving as minister, one of dads regular stops each week was in the local hospital. Looking back I remember times when dad and I went together to visit the sick and shut ins. I remember times when I felt uncomfortable. I didnt know what to say to some-one dying of cancer, or someone who had just lost a loved one, but dad always knew what to do and what to say. Strange how just taking the time to go and sit with someone or offering to pray with them about their situation helps. Some feel prayer is a waste of time, but when dad and later when I offered to pray with and for someone, they never refused and always appreciated it. Does prayer help? Yes! Are people healed as a result of God answering prayers? Yes! I know this from what the Bible says, and from experience as well. Look at some Bible examples. In Joshua 10, where Israel, in the process of conquering the land of Canaan, which God had com-manded and promised to them. The battle was taking longer than expected, and Joshua prays for the sun to stand still. It was an audacious prayer for sure, but God answered, and the sun stood still for a day. Moses prayed for the defeat of Amalek, Exodus 17:8-13, Gideon prayed for reas-surance from God, Judges 6:36-40, Samson prayed for strength, Judges 16:25-30, Elijah prayed for a boy to come back to life, I Kings 17:19-23, Elijah prays for rain, I Kings 18:41-45; James 5:17-18, Hezekiah prayed for healing and more time to live, 2 Kings 20:1-7, Daniel prayed for safety while in the lions den, Daniel 6:10,16-22. There are so many instances in both the Old and New Testaments where prayers are made, and God responds. I have also seen God work in my life in answer to prayer as well as in the lives of other Christians who are strong in prayer. Do you believe in miracles? Sure! If not, then why pray? If you are asking God to heal someone, of course He has ways this can be done, but I find no scriptures which say He no longer heals, quite to the contrary. The fact is that God works. We go to doc-tors, and they give us medicine or perform surgeries as needed and many times these things work, and God can and does work in this as well. There are also many cases where the best of doctors admit they can only do so much, and they often encourage people to pray. Christian physi-cians often pray before they go into surgery. Why do all this if God is impotent? Do I under-stand how prayer works? No! I just know God answers prayer. James says, Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any sick among you? Let him call the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up: and if he have committed any sins, they shall be forgiven him James 5:13-15. HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.net Q Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, direc tor of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family confer ences, and offers biblical counseling to individuals, couples and families. Jack Exum Jr.firstname.lastname@example.org Q Jack Exum Jr. Is a freelance writer who lives in Lake City, By ROBERT BARRAssociated PressLONDON The Church of England should hold another vote on women bishops as soon as possible, its representative in the House of Commons said Thursday, while some members suggested strip-ping the church of its exemption from sex-dis-crimination laws. Legislation to permit women to become bishops was blocked in the churchs governing General Synod on Tuesday, a result that has drawn harsh criticism in Parliament. This is not an issue which can in any way be parked for the next couple of years or so await-ing another round of synod elections, said Tony Baldry, a member of Parliament who is official designated to speak for the church. There has to be an understanding that this is an issue that has to be resolved as soon as possi-ble, he said in a Commons debate. Church legislation to permit women to serve as bishops failed to win the necessary two-thirds majority among lay mem-bers of the General Synod. Church officials have said it could take five years to lay the ground for another vote, but Baldry said this should not be necessary. It is perfectly possible for a different and amend-ed measure to be consid-ered by General Synod, he said. The church has been unable to find a formula which meets the objec-tions of traditionalists who believe only men can be priests and bish-ops, without at the same time offending women by restricting their authority and status as bishops. Frank Field, a legislator and former member of the General Synod, introduced a bill on Thursday to strip the church of its exemp-tion from sex-discrimina-tion laws. More drastically, there has been talk of end-ing the churchs status as the state church governed by the monarch. We might, in fact, be doing the church a favor by seeking to review its constitutional status, said Eilidh Whiteford of the Scottish National Party. Field said the church was granted an exemption from the sex-discrimina-tion law in 1975 on the basis we understood that they were going to sort their own affairs out. Any organization that thinks it can turn its back on half of the talent in the country, and thinks it will be taken seriously, needs some sort of serious wake-up call, Field said in a BBC radio interview on Wednesday.

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23-24, 20128A Sandy victims cheered by paradeBy TOM HAYSAssociated PressNEW YORK Victims of Superstorm Sandy in New York and elsewhere in the Northeast were comforted Thursday by kinder weath-er, free holiday meals and for some front row seats to the annual Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. It means a lot, said Karen Panetta, of the hard-hit Broad Channel section of Queens, as she sat in a special viewing section set aside for New Yorkers dis-placed by the storm. Were thankful to be here and actually be a family and to feel like lifes a little nor-mal today, she said. The popular Macys parade, attended by more than 3 million people and watched by 50 million on TV, included such giant balloons as Elf on a Shelf and Papa Smurf, a new ver-sion of Hello Kitty, Buzz Lightyear, Sailor Mickey Mouse and the Pillsbury Doughboy. Real-life stars included singer Carly Rae Jepsen and Rachel Crow of The X Factor. The young, and the young at heart, were delighted by the sight and sound of marching bands, perform-ers and, of course, the giant balloons. The sunny weather quickly surpassed 50 degrees. Alan Batt and his 11-yearold twins, Kyto and Elina, took in the parade at the end of the route, well away from the crowd and seem-ingly too far away for a good view. But they had an advantage: Two tall step-ladders they hauled over from their apartment eight blocks away one for each twin. Were New Yorkers, the 65-year-old Batt said. We know what were doing. With the height advantage, I get to see every-thing! Kyto said. At nearby Greeley Square, social worker Lowell Herschberger, 40, sought in vain to tear his sons, 8-year-old Logan and 6-year-old Liam, from a foosball table set up in the tiny park as the balloons crept by on the near horizon. Hey, guys theres Charlie Brown, he said, pointing at the old standby balloon. The boys didnt look up.I guess theyre over it, he said with a shrug. Mayor Michael Bloomberg was reflective Thursday as he praised police, firefighters, armed services personnel, sani-tation workers and volun-teers involved in the storm response. His office was coordinating the distribution of 26,500 meals at 30 sites in neighborhoods affected by Sandy, and other organiza-tions also were pitching in. The disaster zones on Staten Island were flooded this time with food and volunteers from Glen Rock, N.J. organized using social media. We had three carloads of food, said volunteer Beth Fernandez. The whole town of Glen Rock pitched in. ... Its really cool. Its my best, my favorite Thanksgiving ever. On Long Island, the Long Beach nonprofit Surf For All hosted a Thanksgiving event that fed 1,200 people. Carol Gross, 72, a Long Beach native, said she went to volunteer but was turned away because of a surplus of helpers. A lot of people like me, old-timers, weve never seen anything like this hor-ror, she said, recalling the destruction. Gross brother, Jerry, who moved to Arizona in the 1960s, was stunned when he returned for Thanksgiving. To come back and see the boardwalk all devastat-ed like it is, its like going to Manhattan and finding Times Square gone, he said.ASSOCIATED PRESSThe Chloe ballon and Spider-Man balloon are inflated fo r the 86th annual Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade on Ne w Yorks Upper West Side on Wednesday.

Daniels served as an assistant coach under Mike Hunter for Fort Whites middle school program and the varsity since the 1980s. Hunter spoke at the funeral. When Fort White started middle school football in 1983, Hunter called on his friend to help get the program started and Daniels donated the lumber for the bleachers at the field. Over the years, Daniels made financial contributions to the Fort White program. He helped with the cost of charter buses and for one playoff trip paid for motel rooms for the players and coaches. In Fort Whites early years, Daniels asked Hunter if he could help coach. Hunter agreed, never expecting to hear any more about it. The next spring Hunter was surprised by a call from Daniels wanting to know when he should show up. Daniels moved up with Hunter when he became varsity head coach and joined him again later when Hunter returned to again coach the middle school program. It was all as a volunteer. Daniels loved the Seminoles and was a Golden Chief. For many years he would donate enough FSU tickets to send Boys Club members to a game. An ailing Daniels called last week to report on his son, Kris, who was coaching softball in Georgia and whose team recently won a state championship. Kris, a 1995 graduate of Columbia High where he played baseball, went to Georgia to teach and coach after graduating from Florida State. He coached at Central Gwinnett for four years, then moved to Archer High in Lawrenceville, Ga., a new school where he was charged with starting up the softball program. That was in 2009 and now Kris team won state and posted a 33-7 record. Unlike Floridas playoffs, it takes more than a team getting hot at the right time. Georgia has eight regions and the top four teams from each advance to the playoffs. The first two series are best 2-of-3, and Kris team swept both. It was on to the Elite 8 in Columbus, Ga., where the Olympics softball was staged. The format was double elimination for the field and Kris team went undefeated. I never thought Id be coaching softball, but I love it, Kris said. Daddy was proud.

Final week of college football brings out rivalriesBy RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressThe Notre Dame-USC rivalry has been defined by dominance over the last four decades. Two of college footballs most cel-ebrated teams have alter-nated long runs of success in the series that have coincided with the ups and downs of the programs. When the Fighting Irish and Trojans meet for the 84th time on Saturday in the Los Angeles Coliseum, Notre Dame will be playing for a spot in the national championship while USC will be trying to salvage a disappointing season. The Irish appear primed to turn the rivalry back in their direction after a decade of USC ownership. During Southern Californias most recent dynasty, coach Pete Carrolls Trojans reeled off eight straight victories against the Irish from 2002-09, the longest winning streak by USC in the series. In 2010, Brian Kellys first season as Notre Dame coach, the Irish snapped that streak, 20-16, with the help of a memorable dropped pass that would have been a sure touch-down. USC came right back and won last season in South Bend, Ind., 31-17, to make it nine out of 10. Well, its not a great rivalry right now, Kelly said Notre Dame looks to swing series against USC. PICKS continued on 3B Marquee matchup BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Zedrick Woods (left) and Trey Marshall converge on Bartram Trail Highs Nick Uruburu durin g the Tigers 35-14 win last week in the opening round of the Class 6A playoffs.Tigers look to sting Jackets againBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High and St. Augustine High meet for the second time in as many years in one of the states marquee playoff matchups tonight. The Tigers host the Yellow Jackets at 7:30 p.m. with a spot in the third round of the states Class 6A playoffs on the line. Last year, Columbia defeated the Yellow Jackets, 24-9, but this St. Augustine team may be even better at 11-0. Its the making of a beautiful matchup, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. You have an 11-0 and a 10-1 football team set to square off. These are two tradi-tion rich schools, and what St. Augustine has done in the last decade is W hile many of us will be warming up day-old leftovers from Thanksgiving today, we dont have to worry about getting the leftovers on the football field. One of the states premier matchups takes place right here in Lake City as our Columbia High Tigers take on St. Augustine High at 7:30 p.m. tonight in The Jungle. This one is full of storylines and marks the second year in a row that the Tigers have played a game on the day after Thanksgiving. Columbia is looking to duplicate a run similar to those of the 1967 and 1997 teams. The Tigers feel they have a state-caliber football team. Its been 15 years since Columbia has played in that game and 45 years since a championship, but a win would put the Tigers within three games of calling themselves state champions. St. Augustines success is a little more recent, specifically under head coach Joey Wiles. Wiles has helped the Yellow Jackets make the state championship game three times in his tenure with St. Augustine (2001, 2005 and 2007) with the schools lone championship coming in 2005. That team featured future Florida Gator Brandon James at running back. The team also defeated rival Nease, which had future Gator quarterback Tim Tebow, that season. Allen is looking to bring that type of success back to Columbia and through two years has done everything you can ask of him and his staff. Hes his harshest critic, and hed probably even admit that making it to the second round of the Class 6A playoffs two years in a row isnt enough for him. Its not enough for the group of Tigers that will take the field tonight either. Columbia isnt looking past St. Augustine by any means, but a state championship has been talked about all season. Its the Tigers third and final goal. Columbia has already accomplished the other two. Allen wanted the Tigers to take the District 4-6A championship this season after falling a game short last year. That mission was accomplished with a win against Ridgeview High, which the Yellow Jackets eliminated from the playoffs last week. Goal No. 2 the Tigers accomplished last week by reaching 10 wins on the season during Columbias 35-14 win against Bartram Trail High in the opening round of the playoffs. But the big goal still remains. St. Augustine stands in the way looking to achieve the same goal. A team doesnt talk about winning state unless its dreaming or believes it honestly has a chance to FROM THE SIDELINE Brandon FinleyPhone: (386) firstname.lastname@example.orgCertainly not the leftovers TIGERS continued on 2B CHS continued on 2B Q Tim Kirby is sports editor of the Lake City Reporter

But the Tigers must also realize what is in front of them. Wiles is 171-36 after last weeks 35-26 victory against Ridgeview High in the opening round of the playoffs. He has coached the Yellow Jackets to seven undefeated seasons and looks to continue on St. Augustines undefeated mark tonight. The Tigers are trying to make their own bit of history and stand in the way of Wiles legacy. Columbia must stop quarterback Sandon Mims to accomplish that feat. Mims is the oil that makes the Jackets motor go. Hes passed for over 2,000 yards this season and will be looking for redemption after the Tigers limited his offense to only nine points last season. But the Yellow Jackets also have a much-improved running game this year led by Levent Sands. All he did in the opening game of the playoffs was rush for 261 yards against the Panthers. The Yellow Jackets will rely heavily on Sands to set up the passing game and that plays into the Tigers philosophy. Columbia is a run first and stop the run kind of football team. They pride their team on such things. Can the Tigers keep from breaking? Will Columbia be able to make it two in a row against one of the states best? Will Ronald Timmons (1,320 yards) continue to pile up the rushing yards as he moves closer to the 1,500 yard mark? We find out tonight.Tigers 23, Jackets 14 TIGERS: Face stiff challenge in Jackets Continued From Page 1B outstanding. Allen and the Tigers dream of matchups like this. They live for them. Columbia isnt interested in playing teams that wont challenge them. They want to know how good they are and they want to prove it on the field. Tonight they get that chance and Allen is giving St. Augustine a lot of credit, which it deserves. Theyre a well-coached football team, Allen said. (Head coach Joey) Wiles does a real good job and they have a tradition of succeeding in the weight room. They do a fine job and I had a chance to see how they do things first hand during weightlifting season. They have a fine tradition and you can see it on their walls with all the players that have come through there. Teams that succeed in the weight room usually bring forward a physical football game and thats something that the Tigers have prided themselves on all season. Allen said this is a chance for the Tigers to match up against a team that also prides itself on being physical at the line of scrimmage. Theyre going to try to play a physical game, Allen said. Im excited to see a really tough game and as a player, you have to be excited. St. Augustine is going to look to pound the rock with Levent Sands getting most of the work. He rushed for 261 yards against Ridgeview High in the first round of the playoffs. Theyre going to line up the same as they did last year with a lot of strong and weak formations, Allen said. Theyre going to give us a steady helping of Iso, Power, Counter and Dive plays. Allen said this should be the kind of game that his defense loves. As a defensive lineman, this is the type of game you want to play in, Allen said. The more physical team should walk away with the win. Thats why we go through these prac-tices every Tuesday and Wednesday with our blitz pickups and run heavy sessions. This is the type of game where you have to dig your cleats into the ground and be prepared for their physicality. Its our job to bend, but not break. While Allen wants his defense to be physical, his offense will try to take the same approach to match up against the Yellow Jackets 4-3 look. Theyre going to show us a lot of 4-3 with some Cover 3 looks, Allen said. Theyll walk an extra guy down into the box. Its simi-lar to what we do. We kind of see that scheme, so thats another advantage for us. We see it every day against our group, so hopefully we can pick some weaknesses out and take advantage. One advantage that the Tigers may have over St. Augustine is that Columbia has already been through the gauntlet. With games against Gainesville, Vanguard, Ridgeview and Bartram Trail high schools, Columbia has played high-caliber opponents. Allen is hoping that those games have prepared the Tigers for this point. The advantage we may have, is that theyve only had 1-2 on their schedule, Allen said. What you dont see on tape is how physical we really are. That doesnt show up and theres not a statistic to account for it. While St. Augustine has quarterback Sandon Mims back, the Yellow Jackets lost a lot of players from last years team to gradu-ation. It hasnt hurt in the record book, but Allen hopes it shows up on the field tonight. Theyre kind of like Bartram Trail in that they were senior heavy last year, Allen said. This year, we have the seniors, but weve also got some pretty good juniors, sophomores and freshmen. It should be our turn. While the Yellow Jackets have no superstars, Allen feels theyre deep. Theres no Derrick Henry, Allen said. They dont have to have a spe-cial performance from one guy, they just have to come out and play great group football.

Theyve had the upper hand on this. We need to make this a rivalry. From the mid-80s through the mid-90s, it was USC that was trying to make it a rivalry. As USC struggled to hold its place among the elite programs in college football, the Irish often contended for nation-al titles under Lou Holtz and went 12-0-1 against the Trojans. That number helps explain the relatively short tenures of coaches Ted Tollner (1983-86) and Larry Smith (1987-92) at USC. Lane Kiffin is hoping his USC career is more like Carrolls than Smiths, but it has certainly been a tough season for the Trojans. They started the season, their first after a two-year, NCAA-imposed postseason ban, ranked No. 1, and with the presumptive Heisman Trophy front-runner in senior star quarterback Matt Barkley. Maybe expectations were too high for a team that lacked depth and had some question marks on both lines. But few would have predicted that USC would head into its finale against Notre Dame 7-4 and unranked. Even more startling is that its Notre Dame that will take the field Saturday as the unbeaten No. 1 team in the coun-try, two victories from its first national championship since 1988. The Fighting Irish started the season unranked. The last team to start out of the rankings and reach No. 1 was Missouri in 2007. The Tigers lost their final game before the bowls, falling to Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game, and lost a chance to play for the national title. But maybe we shouldnt be so surprised about the Irish. Holtz, Dan Devine, Ara Parseghian and Frank Leahy all won national cham-pionships in their third sea-son as Notre Dame coach, all beating USC along the way.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23-24, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My wife died a few years ago. I live alone and have been a bachelor since then. Old friends have been kind enough to pass along the names and phone numbers of widows or divorcees they felt would be of inter-est to me. I have taken sev-eral of them out to dinner. Some were interesting, but for one reason or another we didnt have enough chemistry for me to call them for another date. What is the considerate thing to do after having just one date? Should I call the person and say it was pleasant, but ...? Should I not call at all and move on? I feel guilty at times for not following up with some comment, as they were mostly nice women. Any suggestions about how to handle these situ-ations would be welcome. -MIAMI WIDOWER DEAR WIDOWER: Conversations such as this can be awkward, which is why many people avoid having them. Because you feel you should say something, a way to handle it would be to say you had a nice time, but you are still grieving and are not ready for a relationship. Chemistry is supposed to be mutual, so dont be surprised if some of the women arent inter-ested in pursuing a rela-tionship with you, either. Thats life. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I work in a store that is popular with teenagers. Every Christmas, parents and grandparents come in here with absolutely no clue what to get. Asking Whats popular right now? doesnt help. (Whats cool to one teen may be lame to another.) Id like to offer a couple of tips to help clueless relatives select the right gift for their teen. (1) Bring a recent photo of her or him. We can tell a lot by looking. It will pro-vide hints as to what kind of gift they may like. (2) Copy a list of their likes from Facebook and bring it with you. It may mention books, music, movies or other interests that will make it easy to track down something they would enjoy. I hope this helps some of your readers. -VALERIE IN FORT WORTH DEAR VALERIE: Bless you for writing. Im sure many parents and grand-parents will take your suggestions to heart. Santa isnt the only one who needs a helper at Christmastime. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: What do you think of a 30-year-old man who posted every detail about his breakup with my daughter on Facebook for all of their 1,000 friends and family members to read? There was some personal and very painful stuff. Is this the new generation norm? Or is he immature and inconsider-ate? -HURTING FOR MY DAUGHTER DEAR HURTING: Welcome to the wonder-ful world of the Internet, where millions of indi-viduals have chosen to live their lives online for all to see. And while you and I might consider what hap-pened to be a form of kiss-ing-and-telling, bragging, a bid for sympathy and in poor taste, the people who love your daughter will unfriend this person, and those who love gossip will devour every detail with relish. In time your daughter will realize she is lucky this relationship is over. Whether her former boy-friend used Facebook to gain 15 minutes of fame or as a weapon to hurt her, I think she can do better. Dont you? ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Im 15 and my boyfriend, Todd, is almost 18. He wants us to have a baby. I would like to, but I live with my grandmother because my mom has a drug problem and my dad was killed when I was 9. Im scared if I get pregnant she wont let me keep it. My grandmother and I dont get along sometimes, and Im scared shell have my boyfriend put in jail. I have thought about this, and I really want to have a baby with him. I love Todd more than anything. Is it bad that I want to get pregnant? Im in ninth grade and hell be a senior. Please give me some advice. -WANTS TO BE A MOM, PRINCETON, W.VA. DEAR WANTS TO BE A MOM: Before you and Todd rush into this, it is important to consider how you will take care of a baby. Babies are not just cute; they are also com-pletely helpless and A LOT OF WORK. Some schools offer students a program in which boys and girls are given dolls that require 24-hour care. They are just like real babies in that they cry, wet, and must be fed and with a par-ent at all times. Students are assigned to care for their baby for a week or more, and often, by the end of the assignment period, the desire to have a baby disappears as the reality about the degree of responsibility becomes obvious. Please look into the possibility of attending a class like this because it is important. If you become pregnant as a freshman, it will less-en your chances of gradu-ating. You and Todd will need a diploma in order to support yourselves and a child. If loving a baby was all it takes, your mother would be caring for you instead of your grandmoth-er. I cannot stress enough the importance of you and Todd completing your edu-cation before becoming parents. It will make you better parents. You should also be prepared to stay together until your child is an adult. Isnt that what you would have wanted if your father hadnt died and your mother turned to drugs? Im glad you wrote, that youre smart and didnt act on impulse. Your grand-mother is doing her best to raise you, and she already has enough responsibility on her shoulders. Another child might be more than she can physically and emotionally handle. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im 16 and have been in a relationship for five months. I know Im young, but things just hap-pened. I like this boy a lot and he likes me. Before we went out we were best friends. Back then, we had so much to talk about. But ever since we officially became a cou-ple, theres nothing really to say to each other. We used to talk all day on the phone, and now its kind of hard to have a normal conversation. The physical attraction is there, but the mental attraction is sort of going away. He is amazing and listens to all my problems, but when I dont have any problems there is nothing to say. I dont want to end it between us. What should I do? -DISAPPOINTED DEAR DISAPPOINTED: You and your boyfriend may be spending too much time together and not enough on other activi-ties. If you interact more with other friends, become active in sports or group activities and spend more time apart, then you -and he -will have more to bring to your conversa-tions. Please try it, and encourage him to do the same. ** ** **To order How to Write Letters for All Occasions, send your name and mail-ing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby -Letter Booklet, P.O.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23-24, 20126B Nascar Several years ago,Jimmie Johnson andhis crew chief Chad Knaus seemed a bitmiffed when they were asked about the upcoming season during their championshipinterview at Homestead-Miami Speedway. But on Sunday at Homestead,a good bit of the questioning of NASCARs newest champi-on,Brad Keselowski,was focused on thefuture. In winning the title,Keselowski,28,becomes the first driver born in the 1980s to win theCup title and thereby becomes the face ofNASCAR for many fans.Hes already a garageleader in the relatively modern world of socialmedia,which is popular among the youngeraudience that NASCAR wants to add to its fanbase. Hell do great,said Homestead winner Jeff Gordon,who at age 41 is long past his WonderBoyyears.Hes entertaining.You never knowwhat youre going to get with Brad.I enjoy orlook forward to watching him,and I think thisexperience,he will just mature to a wholenother level because of being in this positionand carrying this responsibility. Gordon also said he expects Keselowski,like others who have won their first Cup titles,tobe changed by the experience. Every champion that Ive ever seen win their first one,they always come out of it witha whole new perspective on past champions,he said.I remember when Jimmie [Johnson]won his,he was overwhelmed with everythingthat comes along with it.It makes you grow up Theres a lot to take in,and it makes youreally look at things a lot differently and recog-nize that responsibility that you have. There also was talk about how Keselowski and his Paul Wolfe-led team will perform onthe track in the future as the relatively young team gets more experience.Keselowski hasjust three full seasons in NASCARs elite divi-sion. It doesnt take long to have [the championship] sink in,and weve got to think aboutthe future,said Keselowskis car owner RogerPenske,who finally got his first Cup title aftercompeting on and off in NASCAR since 1972.Obviously Brad has got not only the raw tal-ent,but I think hes a thinking driver.I thinkhis windshield is bigger than people realize.Heknows whats going on and takes care of hiscar I think hes going to be a multiple champion,and I hope that Paul [Wolfe] and the teamcan continue to grow on the success we hadthis weekend and this year and we can go onand do it again. Keselowski said he too is looking forward.I feel like the best is yet to come.I really do,he said.I feel like were still at the begin-ning.You cant judge something off the begin-ning.If you were building a house and you justlooked at the foundation,it doesnt look likemuch of anything.I feel like were very early.Weve got the cement poured,and I want tokeep building. By RICK MINTER / Cox Newspapers By RICK MINTER / Cox Newspapers 2012 CHASE RESULTS Following the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway 1.Brad Keselowski 2,400 (finished 15th) His No.2 Dodge team seemed to be playing it conservatively to protect the points lead theybrought into the finale,but despite a mid-racechallenge from Jimmie Johnson,his carappeared fast enough to finish at least 15th andsecure the title,even if Johnson hadnt droppedout with a mechanical failure.I think that asbad as we ran tonight that that made it morespecial that we were still able to finish 15thregardless of what happened to [Johnson],saidcrew chief Paul Wolfe.2.Clint Bowyer -39 (finished second) Few thought it would be possible for Bowyer to claim the runner-up spot in the Chase,butJohnsons rear-gear failure,coupled withBowyers strong finish,made it happen by a sin-gle point.I didnt see that coming,Bowyersaid.But just a great year,super excited abouthow far weve come in a short amount of time.3.Jimmie Johnson -40 (finished 36th) Crew chief Chad Knaus strategy had Johnson in position to win the race,but a penal-ty for a loose lug nut on a pit stop followed byrear-gear failure ended his bid for a sixth Cuptitle.Im proud of the fact that we went outthere and backed up what we said we could doand we put the pressure on [Keselowski],Johnson said.It doesnt take the sting awayfrom losing the championship.It helps in someways and stings in others,so it balances out.4.Kasey Kahne -55 (finished 21st) He was in contention to win before a penalty for speeding on pit road and an extra stop forfuel put him out of the running.We just got off,we had to pit more than the other guys,he said.5.Greg Biffle 68 (finished fifth) His fifth-place finish at Homestead moved him to the top five in the final standings.Hesthe top performer from the Ford camp.6.Denny Hamlin -71 (finished 24th) He was in the running for the championship before a parts failure at Martinsville.Since thenhes been a non-factor in the Chase,with threefinishes of 20th or worse in the final four races.Still,he had five wins for the season.7.Matt Kenseth -76 (finished 18th) His final run for Roush Fenway Racing wasnt what hed hoped for.We were one of the carsthat didnt pit to make it on fuel,and then thatcost us a good 10 spots,he said.A frustratingending to the season.8.Kevin Harvick -79 (finished eighth) He had just three top-10 finishes in the Chase,and they all came in the final threeraces,including his win at Phoenix.9.Tony Stewart -89 (finished 17th) His 500th career Cup start wasnt one to remember.The defending series champion ranin mid-pack all day.We just never got the bal-ance of the car right,he said.10.Jeff Gordon -97 (finished first) A week after being docked 25 points and fined $100,000 for wrecking Clint Bowyer,heoutran Bowyer to get his 87th career victoryand a spot at the awards banquet,as only thetop 10 are honored.I cant believe that we fin-ished first and second after what happened lastweek,he said.11.Martin Truex Jr.-101 (finished sixth) His Homestead finish was his third top-six run in a Chase that didnt work out like hedplanned.Should have won four races this year,and we just keep giving them away,he said.12.Dale Earnhardt Jr.-155 (finished 10th) His overall performance was much improved throughout the season,but his Chase effort wasdealt a blow when he missed two races becauseof concussions.Brad Keselowski and team owner Roger Penske stand with the Sprint Cup trophy between them as th ey celebrate winning the 2012 series championship at Sundays NASCAR Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.(NASC AR photo)NASCARs Camping World and Nationwide Series championships wound up being won by thedrivers who were atop the points standings asthey entered the series finales at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In the closest contest,22-year-old James Buescher,who had an 11-point lead before theTruck race,won the title by six points overTimothy Peters.Peters finished eighth atHomestead while Buescher was 13th en route tohis first-ever major NASCAR title. In the Nationwide Series,defending series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr.took the title by 23points over Elliott Sadler with a sixth-place finis h to Sadlers ninth. Stenhouses celebration seemed a bit subdued, and much of his post-race press conference wasspent talking about an issue late in the race whenhis spotter Mike Calinoff urged him to let BrianScott pass by rather than risk a championship-crushing wreck.Stenhouse ignored Calinoffsinstructions and held down the button of his two-way radio for the rest of the race. There were some anxious moments for our spotter,and I got tired of listening,so I keyed upthe mic so he couldnt talk to me the rest of theway,Stenhouse said.I wanted 20 top-fives [fin-ishes for the season] at least,so I came up onespot short.We wanted to win the race;thats whatwe come to do each and every week and thatswhat got us in the position that we were in I like racing hard like that.Thats what I do, thats what I enjoy,and thats why I love racing.Thats just how I drive. Sadler,who won four races this season to Stenhouses six and stayed at or near the top ofthe series standings for most of the season,saidhis team just couldnt overcome a controversialpenalty at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in mid-season and a crash at Phoenix the week beforeHomestead. At Indy,Sadler was penalized for jumping a late-race restart,and his resulting 15th-place fin-ish saw his points lead over second place dropfrom 11 points to one. You win some races,you have some peaks and you have some valleys,and we just had a few val-leys there coming down the stretch that just kindof took the momentum away from us and wherewe lost control of the championship,said Sadler,who lost to Stenhouse for the second-straight year.All in all,yes,it is disappointing.This one doeshurt worse than last year because we did controlthe points the whole entire season,and we knewRicky was going to be tough to race for the cham-pionship. But I want to try to take the positives out of it, learn from it,and go home and spend some timewith my family. On the Truck Series side,the champion ended a dream season on a positive note.Buescher startedthe year with an upset victory in the NationwideSeries race at Daytona and won the Truck title onthe strength of a series-high four race wins. This year has been incredible for me,Buescher said.First of all,I got married in January,and mywife is my No.1 supporter,so to be able to start of f the race season after taking that next step in mylife with a win at Daytona was incredible,bestthing Id ever done in racing. That kind of opened the floodgates for us to win some races on the Truck side Its been a phe-nomenal year for my racing career and for my per-sonal life.I just feel really blessed. Cale Gale won the Truck race at Homestead, beating Cup regular Kyle Busch in a shootout on agreen-white-checkered-flag run to the finish.Itwas his first Truck Series victory.

Apetitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any per-son to file a petition within the ap-propriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to re-quest an administrative determina-tion (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to inter-vene in this proceeding and partici-pate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiat-ed by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in com-pliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.Apetition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Au-thority's action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency af-fected and each agencys file or iden-tification number, if known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address and telephone number of the peti-tioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service pur-poses during the course of the pro-ceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial rights will be affected by the agency determina-tion; (c) Astatement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed deci-sion; (d) Astatement of all disputed issues of material fact.
