A Lake City woman on Monday received an email threaten-ing her life if she didnt fol-low its instructions. The scammer said he had been hired to kill the woman but that if she sent him $5,000 he would show mercy on her and relent. The email said she shouldnt notify authorities or he might be pushed do what I have been paid to do. The woman didnt send the money and called the Columbia County Sheriffs Office instead. Internet scams have a life cycle, said Ed Seifert, pub-lic information officer with the sheriffs office. This one dates back to at least 2007. In the email, the scammer said he had been paid SCAM continued on 3AWoman suffers burns in search for grandkids during house re Children had already been rescued; woman still hospitalized for burns, smoke inhalation Murdersuspectremains at largeFrom staff reportsA suspect in the April 27 shooting death of a local convenience store owner is still at large and local police are reminding residents that a $10,000 reward remains in effect for informa-tion lead-ing to his capture. Ernest Larry Grandison, 42, shot the owner of A&M Discount Beverage to death during an April 27 robbery, police say. His alleged accomplice and son-in-law, James Leonard Johnson, was arrested May 19 in Jacksonville. The store owner was identified as Rajni Patel, 55, of Lake City. His wife, Daxa Patel, was fired at by Gandison but escaped harm, police said. Grandson and Johnson reportedly entered the store at about 1:30 p.m. Johnson went behind the counter and took some cash, at which point Rajni Patel came out of a utility room and was shot. In a statement issued Monday, LCPD asked any-one with information about the crime to call police at (386) 719-2068.

By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA woman was airlifted to Shands at the University of Florida after she was injured while trying to find her grandchildren in a burn-ing house. The children had been removed from the house by their grandfather. Rosa Kelsey suffered burns, but the main reason she was airlifted was due to smoke inhalation, Rosa Kelseys daughter Shantel Kelsey said. Shantel Kelsey was at her aunts house, which is next to the house that caught fire. The house that was engulfed in flames, 142 Arcadia Court, was destroyed with all the Kelseys belongings. All they have is what was on their backs, she said. Shantel Kelsey said the family does have fire insurance. Avery Kelsey, Shantel Kelseys father, was awakened by the cries of the grandchildren in the living room early Sunday morning, according to Shantel Kelsey. Three children, ages 4, 5 and 6, were in the home while it was burning, she said. She said her father broke out a window and jumped through, landing on the front porch, then broke down the front door and took the children from the house. Shantel Kelsey said that her mother didnt know that Avery Kelsey had removed the children, because they ran to her aunts house after Avery Kelsey rescued them. Everything was lost, including irreplaceablefamily photographs.

Scott challenges colleges to offerlow-cost degreesBy BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott on Monday chal-lenged Floridas community and state colleges to develop four-year degrees that would cost no more than $10,000, which also would continue their move into an area that was once the sole domain of the states public universi-ties. The mean level of tuition and fees was $3,328 during the 2011-12 academic year, according the Department of Educations 2012 annu-al report for the Florida College System. At that rate, a four-year degree would cost about $13,300, or $3,300 above Scotts goal. Tuition and fees for four years at a Florida university aver-age about $25,000, or nearly twice as much as for the 28 col-leges. Scott made his proposal before an audience of elected offi-cials as well as college and community leaders at the Clearwater campus of St. Petersburg College. Its the first school to take up his challenge. The Republican governor, STATE NEWS DEGREES continued on 3A Scott

AROUND FLORIDA Walmart shooting suspects caught TALLAHASSEE Tallahassee police plan to charge two suspects with attempted murder after a shooting over a Walmart parking space. An arrest affidavit shows Earl White III and Tiffany Yancey were captured in Grady County, Georgia, on Saturday. They face charg es of attempted robbery with a firearm, attempted murder and possession of firearm by convicted felon in connection to the store shooting. Police said a disagree ment over a parking space led to the shooting outside the store on Black Friday. The affidavit said Yancey pointed a gun at a female, demanding everything in your purse. Police sais White then shot the woman and a male passen ger outside the store. Man charged with hitting firefighter PORT CHARLOTTE Authorities say a south west Florida man hit a fire fighter with a shovel while he was attempting to put out a fire at the suspects home. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reports that 44-year-old Gregory Turner was charged Friday with aggravated battery on a firefighter with a deadly weapon. Authorities said Turner yelled at the fire lieuten ant to get off his property as a mattress, blinds and several home appliances burned. The firefighter went back to his truck to grab a hose to extinguish the blaze. Thats when Turner added more items to the fire, then grabbed a shovel, and hit the victim on his helmet, authorities said. Deputies shot Turner with a stun gun. He later admitted to starting the fire. Regulators to rule on power rates TALLAHASSEE State regulators are considering requests from Floridas two largest electric utili ties to continue passing on nuclear facility costs to their customers in 2013. The Public Service Commission is taking up the proposals from Florida Power & Light Co. and Progress Energy Florida on Monday. FPL is seeking $151 million, which would be $1.65 per month for a typi cal residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours. Thats 55 cents less than this years nuclear cost recovery charge. Progress wants $143 million. That would increase the current charge for a 1,000-kilowatthour customer by $1.80 to $4.73 per month.

Rolling Stones storm London LONDON T he verdict is in: The Rolling Stones are back. They may look old, but they still sound young. That was the consen sus Monday as Britains rock critics responded to the Stones 50th anni versary bash Sunday night, the first of five shows to commemorate their half century of rhythm and bluestinged rock. It was the bands first London performance in five years, and their own advancing years had led some to be skeptical that they could still perform at the highest level. They were led by the seemingly ageless Mick Jagger, whose strut ting style has not been dimmed, and backed by brilliant guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and the energetic drumming of Charlie Watts, who is now past 70 but shows no sign of slowing down. The Daily Mails Jan Moir said the Stones had somehow beaten the aging process: You might imagine that they had been worn down by life, by wives, by arthritis, by scan dals old and new, by drugs, but no they seemed indestructible. She said their swampy, gritty sound remains unique after half a century. Elton John dedicates show to dissident BEIJING Pop icon Elton John publicly dedicated his only concert in Beijing to Chinese artist and political critic Ai Weiwei, sending a murmur of shock through an audience accus tomed to tight cen sorship of entertainment. Minutes into a more than two-hour show Sunday night, John told the audience that the performance was dedicated to the spirit and talent of Ai Weiwei, according to several audience members. They said the crowd rumbled in recognition that Ai remains a touchy subject for the Chinese government. Beyonce documentary premiering in February NEW YORK Beyonce is getting personal.

The idea drew applause from state education offi cials, but the Florida Democratic Party criticized his proposal, noting Scott supported a $300 million spending cut for state uni versities this year and reduc tions in merit-based Bright Futures scholarships. Weve heard these empty words from Rick Scott before, and Floridas middle class families are looking for real leadership not failed gimmicks masquerading as sound bites, the Democrats said in a statement. The colleges in recent years have begun offering a limited number of fouryear degrees, but the bulk of their students remain in two-year programs. Most of Floridas bache lors degrees still are award ed by the states 12 public universities. Their gradu ates, though, include thou sands of former community and state college students who transfer for their final two years Scotts challenge came just three weeks after his Blue Ribbon Task Force on State Higher Education Reform recommended that Floridas 12 universities be allowed to increase tuition rates if they meet certain quality criteria. Thats some thing Scott opposed in the past, although Floridas tuition rates are among the lowest in the nation. As I travel the state, fami lies tell me that they care about three things get ting a good job, a quality education, and enjoying a low cost of living, Scott said in a statement. As a former community college student myself, I know how impor tant it is for us to keep costs low. St. Petersburg College President Bill Law said the school, which was the first Florida community college to offer four-year degrees, is once again excited about the opportunity to be part of a statewide col lege pilot program that lowers the cost of a college education. Scotts proposal also won the immediate support of several members of the State Board of Education, which oversees the state and community colleges. Board Chairman Gary Chartrand said it would help reduce the need for student loans or lower the amount people have to borrow. Having to take out large loans may be discouraging people from going to col lege even though statistics show the value of a degree in lifetime earning poten tial, he said. State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan was out sick and not immediately available for comment.

FIRE: Belongings gone, but life goes on Continued From Page 1A SCAM: Police allay fears Continued From Page 1A DEGREES: Some education leaders applaud idea Continued From Page 1A some ransom in advance to terminate the victim. The email said that the person who wanted the woman killed was some one she thought was a friend. The would-be killer said he had been following the victim and knew she was innocent of the accusations leveled against her. The email goes on to say that the killer was tak ing pity on the victim and that the killer could only help if you are willing to help yourself. The way the victim was to help herself was to send the killer $5,000 in two installments. The first $2,000 was a show of good faith. The next $3,000 would grant the victim a videotape that would show who wanted her dead. The scam warned the victim to stay indoors after 7:30 p.m. and said if she didnt follow instruc tions she would only have (herself) to blame. The email also stressed the importance of acting immediately. Seifert said hes seen this kind of scam before and that the best thing to do is think before any money is sent. Dont wire anybody money if you havent veri fied who they are, he said. Once you send them the money, its gone. Local law enforcement has a hard time dealing with this type of scam because most Internet scams originate overseas. Seifert said that people who receive an email from someone they dont know asking for money should contact the Secret Service field office in Jacksonville at (904) 296-0133. He said the most com mon scam involves an email claiming the recipi ent had won the lottery or had inherited a large amount of money from a long-lost relative, usually an African king or queen. We urge our residents to use common sense, he said. Rosa Kelsey went to the front door and didnt see the children, then went inside the burning house to find them, Shantel said. Avery Kelsey then went back inside and brought his wife out of the fire. A neighbor was the first to call the fire department after hearing loud pops and smelling smoke, Shantel said. The Lake City Fire Department received the call that a structure was on fire at 1:35 a.m., according to a report. The fire department arrived at the house at 1:44 a.m. Fire Chief Frank Armijo said the fire took about 25 minutes to extinguish. Armijo said the cause of the fire hasnt been determined, and the state fire marshal is investigating. Shantels brother, Avery Jr., and his children went to Shands Lake Shore by ambulance as a precaution. Shantel and her father went directly to Shands at UF to be by her mother, she said. She said the family had lots of pho tographs, and they are all gone. You cant replace pictures, but we have the memories, she said. Some members of the family believe the fire was caused by faulty wires. You could see sparks just going up everywhere, Cherriot Baber, a niece of Rosa Kelsey, said. Baber said the smell of the burn ing house was everywhere, and she would never forget the odor. Shantel Kelsey said things could have been a lot worse. I just thank God that everybody made it out alive, she said. She said although the family lost everything, the family will work it out some way. What we going to do is start all over from scratch all we can do. she said. We all have jobs, but its going to take a while. She said the family has an account with DOT Credit Union, and if people wanted to donate, the account is in Avery Kelseys name. If anyone wants to donate cloth ing, the New Dayspring Missionary Baptist Church, 709 NW Long Street, is where the family worships. Shantel said she would be fine, but her mother, father, brother and the three children lost all their clothes in the fire. SCHOOL CALENDAR Trial starts in foster child murder that shook state By CURT ANDERSON AP Legal Affairs Writer MIAMI The foster parent of 4-year-old Rilya Wilson abused the girl for months before finally smothering her, and then lied to child welfare work ers who failed to discover the girl had been missing for more than a year, a prosecutor said Monday. Rilyas case led to new laws and a massive shakeup at Floridas child wel fare agency after she van ished in 2000. Authorities long suspected caretaker Geralyn Graham in Rilyas disappearance, but didnt charge her until 2005 when she confessed to an inmate while serving time on an unrelated fraud charge, prosecutors said. Graham is on trial for first-degree murder, kid napping and child abuse. She faces life in prison if convicted. Grahams attorney raised the possibility that Rilya could still be alive because her body has not been found. Attorney Scott Sakin suggested Rilya couldve been relocated to a new home and lost in a system that has a history of caseworker incompetence. Sakin also reminded jurors that jailhouse snitches have much to gain for helping out prosecutors. Is there any evidence at all that this child is dead? Sakin said. Where is the body? We dont have to prove that shes alive. They have to prove that this child is dead. Prosecutors said Graham confessed to killing Rilya, who would be 16 now, because she believed the girl was evil and possessed by demons. Other witness es will testify that Graham repeatedly lied about the girls whereabouts after she disappeared, Assistant State Attorney Joshua Weintraub said. She snuffed the life out of this child, he said. ASSOCIATED PRESS Geralyn Graham, a former foster caregiver charged with abuse and murder of young Rilya Wilson, raises her hand in court Monday in Miami.
Q Phil Hudgins is senior editor of Community Newspapers Inc. L amar Boots Pitts didnt know his friends given name. He just called him Po Boy. So did everybody else on the Norfolk Southern Railway, where Po Boy conducted freight trains that made short runs, mostly in Georgia. He was a prince of a man, in my opinion, Pitts said as he talked about a gaggle of retired railroad men who gather at the Corner Cafe in Lula, Ga., the first Tuesday of every month to eat breakfast and reminisce. One of them is Johnny Peanut Sheridan, who got a job on the railroad partly because Po Boy put in a good word for him with the train-master. That was 1959. Youre sort of light for heavy work, the trainmaster told him during an interview, but he hired him anyway. Nearly 44 years later, Sheridan retired from the railroad. He loved working with Po Boy, who he said would come to work every day looking like he was supposed to report to the president of the railroad. Hed have his pants starched, his hat starched, and hed work as hard as anybody, Sheridan said. And whenever we got off , he still had a crease down the leg. Tommy Big Foot Pitchford remembered that Po Boy liked to have fun while he worked. He sang these little jingles, he said: Water boy, set your bucket down, and Theyre burning down the house I was brung up in. He was a good guy to work with. He kept you feeling good. Charlie Phillips remembered, too. He was always joking and carrying on all the time, he said of Po Boy. I dont remember seeing the man ever get upset and mad. He was an easygoing fellow. No doubt Po Boy wasnt always jovial and carrying on, always making sure everybody felt good about working on the railroad. It wasnt always fun. But time has a way of fading bad memories, like the sun fades a pair of overalls hung out on the line week after week. Old railroad men like to recall the good times, the funny times, the jingles sung by a lanky conductor who shined his work shoes every day. They forget so they can remember a little better. But Po Boy really was a nice guy. He took his work serious-ly; he provided for his wife and three kids; he voted in every election. Not sure, though, that he would join the 20 or so railroad men who gather every month to talk about old times. He loved the railroad and his fel-low laborers, but he wouldnt tell you. He just wanted to stay at home, eat at his own kitchen table and drink from his own coffee cup. I knew Po Boy pretty well. And Im remembering him now because 25 years ago on Nov. 30, he drew his last labored breath. His name was Joseph Edwin Hudgins. Everybody on the railroad called him Po Boy. I called him Daddy. And I miss him. Po Boy madehis mark in life OUR OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY On this date:In 1839, the American Statistical Association was founded in Boston. In 1901, the U.S. Army War College was established in Washington, D.C. L ike thousands of other African-Americans of my generation who attended Floridas public schools, I never missed an opportunity to see the Marching 100, Florida A&M Universitys famous band. And like many of my contemporaries, I regret the bands fall from grace in the wake of last years hazing death of drum major Robert Champion. The band is under indefinite suspen-sion until FAMUs interim presi-dent, Larry Robinson, decides when it will be reactivated. When I was a child, black high school bands across Florida imitated the 100. Many kids dreamed of becoming members of what a 1958 Miami Herald headline proclaimed as The Marchingest, Playingest Band in the Land. One of my teachers at Dillard High in Fort Lauderdale had known many FAMU band mem-bers. She said that to become a member of the band, not only did the prospect have to be a competent instrumentalist and possess a body that could make all the moves, you had to pass initiation. She did not use the term hazing, but we knew that ini-tiation made belonging to the Marching 100 sacred and that only the best could wear the sparkling orange-and-green uniform. Attending the Florida Classic, the annual football game between FAMU and its in-state rival Bethune-Cookman University (my alma mater), was the event of the year. It was a rite of passage. Robert Champion was beaten to death in a bus after performing at the 2011 Classic. During my youth, many of us attended FAMU games exclu-sively for the halftime shows, when the 100 performed. ... On the surface, these dynamic performances were pure entertainment. We knew, however, that they represented the essence of African-American culture, rhythmic celebrations of our way of life. ... Which is why so many in my generation lament what has hap-pened to the Marching 100. And we also are angry that hazing ritualized brutality became accepted practice and resulted in the death of Champion. This young mans death is what I consider a black-on-black crime in the academy. For that reason, I am contemptuous of the newly formed Free the 100 campaign at FAMU involv-ing many current and former students fighting to have the band come back before litiga-tion surrounding Champions death has ended even before a respectable period of healing has passed. The imagery of the campaign, Free the 100, crudely evokes an injustice. But band members beat Champion to death. They were not framed by an unjust outside force. They chose to brutalize him. What, then, is the band to be freed from? Which of their rights has been violated? ... Marissa West, FAMU student body president who also serves on the Board of Trustees, said: I know why the students feel the way they do, but I think its important to acknowledge that there was a tragedy that took place. Were in no rush or any haste to speed this process up when we could miss steps or be negligent of things that could potentially be hostile to us in the future. ... My hope is that FAMU officials seek mature voices such as Wests as they contemplate the Marching 100s future. Soon after Champion died, I wanted the band to be given the death penalty. I no longer hold that view after hearing what his mother, Pam Champion, said: Our goal is never to stop the music because thats what my son loved. He loved music, but we certainly want to end the hazing. There is no need for it. Consider mature voices on future of FAMUs band T he week after the election, a few of my students said that they were planning vacations in Colorado or in Washington state. They were kidding. I think. On Nov. 6, voters in both states approved referenda that permit the recreational use of small amounts of marijuana, subject to the same sorts of regulations that apply to the use of alcohol. Relaxed marijuana laws are at odds with federal laws, and the Drug Enforcement Administration acted quickly to remind the defiant voters that marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance, and that the DEAs enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act will continue. Some experts suggest that it will take the Supreme Court to resolve this classic clash between the rights of the states and the authority of the federal government. These events provide the occasion to consider the place and uses of stupefaction in our culture. I use the quaint term in homage to the iconic Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, the author of really big books, including the really, really big War and Peace. After a dis-solute youth and a long, pro-ductive life Tolstoy adopted a radical version of Christianity and a drastic asceticism that resulted in 1890 in a short essay titled, Why Do Men Stupefy Themselves? Tolstoy laments the extravagant use of drugs in late 19th-century Russia, including vodka, wine, beer, hashish, opium, mor-phine and even tobacco. ... Tolstoys definition of a stupefacient was anything that dulled the mind enough to make it lose sight of its conscience. ... Tolstoys answer was total absti-nence. Tolstoy was a genius, but his views sound unrealistic in a cul-ture like ours, with its enormous capacity for and attraction to stu-pefaction. To us, stupefaction, in all its various forms and degrees, is a synonym for pleasure, and while it can certainly separate us from our consciences, we use it also, for good or ill, to separate ourselves from the stresses and tedium of life. ... Tolstoy would have recognized that we stupefy ourselves in all sorts of ways booze and illegal drugs, of course, but also with plenty of legal drugs, food, TV, getting and spending on enormous amounts of electronic entertainment, diversion and distraction more than enough to keep our consciences at bay, as well as the realities of the bad things that are happening in the world. Stupefaction is at the heart of American life, and it might be healthier to admit that, in moderation, its fun. But Tolstoys idealism probably would have been most offended by the irony and hypocrisy in our attitude toward marijuana, which accepts and even admires its admitted use by celebrities (Bill Maher, Willie Nelson, Cheech and Chong) and presidents (Bill Clinton, Barack Obama), while running up the worlds highest incarceration rate by the disproportionate prosecution of minorities. So, congratulations to the voters of Washington and Colorado for their realism and honesty. May other states follow suit. May the voters not befuddle their consciences and visions with excessive stupefaction. And may the Obama administration defer to the will of the voters and wind down the futile war on drugs. Most of us will never live up to Tolstoys rigid idealism, but we can reach in the direction of his integrity.

Rick Scott on Monday challenged Floridas commu-nity and state col-leges to cut costs. Specifically, he wants them to develop four-year degrees that cost no more than $10,000, thus making them even better able to compete with the states elite public universities. We can hear the wagging of academic tongues already: The man doesnt understand the value of a real education and wants to cheapen in every sense of the term learning in the Sunshine State. By learning, we bet most of them mean the liberal arts, including history, literature, philosophy and even anthropol-ogy, which Scott last year told a radio audience the state had had its fill of. All those folks ought to relax.Nobody wants to ship anthropologists and their academic cousins to New Zealand or the North Pole unless of course theyve got a good grant pro-posal and really want to go. There is genuine value in studying the liberal arts. Always has been, always will be. But there is also value in studying something that will actually land you a job. And maybe we do finally need to ponder the question, just how many thinkers as opposed to doers can a civi-lized culture sustain? Lets at least make sure young folks have plenty of options and can choose a future that suits them. Lowering the cost of a good education sounds like a fine place to start.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White Highs basketball team needs to take one more step to make the state playoffs for the first time. The Indians open the season today in a double-header with the girls at Union County High. Tipoff is 6 p.m. for the girls and 7:30 p.m. for the boys (boys junior varsity starts at 4:30 p.m.). Coach Isiah Phillips team was 11-10 in 2011-12 and 5-5 in District 5-4A. The Indians beat Interlachen High in the district tournament, but lost to eventual champion Williston High in the semi-finals. Bradford, Keystone Heights and Santa Fe high schools round out the By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The First Academy completed a playoff sweep of District 3-3A with a 27-17 win over Trinity Catholic High in Orlando last week. The District 4 champion Royals travel to Madison County High for the state semifinal round on Friday. First Academys Ben Deluzio scored on touch-down runs of 55 and five years and caught a 52-yard touchdown pass from Curt Cramer. Deluzio, who has signed a baseball scholarship with Florida State, totaled 206 yards on offense. Landon Scheer kicked field goals of 40 and 48 yards. Joe Sandstrom scored both touchdowns for the Celtics (8-4) and rushed for 113 yards before leaving with an injury in the third quarter. Juan Vargas booted a 35-yard field goal and Demonta Blunt rushed for 99 yards. Newberry High won the rematch with Union County High, knocking the Tigers (11-1) from the list of unbeatens, 18-13. Union County scored first on a 13-yard pass from Caleb Cox to Daquin Edwards and followed with a possession that went to the Panthers 1-yard line. Newberry stopped the score and responded with a 99-yard scoring drive. Rakheem Hoyt scored on a five-yard run and later added a one-yard touch-down run. Hoyt rushed for 103 yards. With the game tied 6-all in By KRISTIE RIEKENAssociated PressCOLLEGE STATION, Texas The legend of Johnny Football has grown all season while Johnny Manziel piled up yards and the Texas A&M Aggies piled up wins. On Monday, the freshman quarterback finally weighed in on his catchy nickname as he spoke to the media for the first time all season. I think a lot of people here in Aggieland enjoy it, he said. But I find it extremely funny. The success of Manziel and the Aggies is no joke. His 4,600 yards of total offense have helped No. 10 A&M to its first 10-win sea-son since 1998, and has him among the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy. Manziel said he respected coach Kevin Sumlins deci-sion for him not to speak to the media this season By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High shares many similarities with the team it will meet next in the Class 6A region-al final at 8:30 p.m. Friday. The Tigers travel over one time zone to take on the Navarre High Raiders at 7:30 p.m. in the Panhandle. Like Columbia, Navarre is 11-1 on the season. Like Columbia, the Raiders are on a nine-game winning streak. Like Columbia, Navarres only loss came against a perennial power-house on the road. The Raiders lost to Pensacola High, 25-24, in week two, but have rebounded like the Tigers. Another similarity to the Tigers is that the Raiders like to do it with a stingy defense. Columbia has the edge on shutouts as the Raiders only have one this season, but Navarre has held opposing teams to 14 points or less in eight games this season. The Tigers have five defensive shutouts. The Raiders defeated Pace High, 30-10, and Milton High, 20-12, to reach the regional final. Navarre trailed Milton, 12-7, at the half before the Raiders pitched a second-half shutout to stop the Panthers on Friday. For their only first-half score, the Raiders used a bit of trickery as Johnny Robinson-Pettus hit Christian Gill on a three-yard jump pass to get on the board. Andre Flakes and Roy Wise each had touchdown runs for Milton in the first half. The Raiders special teams set up Navarre out of the half break, as Nick Benton returned the kick to the 42-yard line. Andrew Reives found Jordan Leggett for a 12-yard touchdown pass and the Raiders took command with a 14-12 lead. A three-and-out forced by Navarres defense set up the sec-ond big play from the Raiders special teams, as a punt block gave Navarre the ball back at the Milton 10-yard line. Reives capped off the drive on a five-yard score. Columbias win was more convincing in a 34-8 fashion over St. Augustine High, but this will be the first time the Tigers have traveled since Oct. 18 against Middleburg High. Columbia (58-0 win) was convincing in that game, too.

HOOPS From Page 1B PLAYOFFS: State semis Continued From Page 1B A&M: Led Aggies to 10-win season Continued From Page 1B because hes a freshman. But says hes happy to have a chance to talk about this season. Its kind of nice now to be able to kind of let you guys know how I am a little bit more, he said. Theres so many question marks out there. Sumlin, who is in his first year at A&M after four seasons at Houston, raved about Manziel and said he was a catalyst for what his team was able to do in its first season in the Southeastern Conference. Hes a tremendous com petitor and a tremendous leader, and thats something that you really dont see in a player as a redshirt fresh man, Sumlin said. His leadership on and off the field throughout the season has made our season a real successful one. Manziel has thrown for 3,419 yards and 24 touch downs and ran for 1,181 yards and 19 more scores in a regular season the Aggies capped with five straight wins including an upset of then top-ranked Alabama. He is second in the nation in total offense and broke Cam Newtons SEC record for total offense in a season on Saturday. The quarterback is a bit surprised at how well Texas A&M did in its transition from the Big 12. I dont think I ever really envisioned how big this sea son would be for us, he said. I dont really think anybody envisioned that we would win 10 games at the beginning of this sea son and that we would all have so much success as a team. The celebrity status has been shocking to Manziel, who will turn 20 two days before the Dec. 8 Heisman announcement. Hes still surprised when people approach him at restaurants and other places around College Station to ask for photos and autographs, even though its become a daily occurrence. Im a small-town kid, he said. I come from Kerrville, Texas, and I still see myself that way. I dont see myself as Johnny Football, I still see myself as Jonathan Manziel, a small town guy from Kerrville who is extremely fortunate and extremely blessed to be able to play football here at A&M. He seemed amused by the attention given to some online photos of him at a Halloween party dressed as Scooby Doo alongside some beautiful and scantilyclad young women. That Halloween night was something where a lot of guys on the team dressed up and kind of just wanted to get away from all the seriousness and the grind that is college football sea son and go out and be kids again and dress up and just have fun, he said, without specifically addressing the pictures. Manziel said winning the Heisman is something he dreamed about as a child, but that he hasnt spent a lot of time worrying about it or any other awards. No freshman has ever won the award given to college footballs most outstanding player. I feel like that situa tion will play itself out, and whatevers meant to be will happen, he said. Im just doing whatever coach Sumlin and them ask me to do ... so we can take care of things in a bowl game. But Manziel did admit that when he was younger hed play college football video games and build a quarterback that would win the award as a freshman. Funny thing is, the players he made rarely resembled his 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame. When I created a video game player I probably made him 6-6, probably 230 pounds, he said. I definite ly didnt make him my size. But Ive played so many video games maybe a few times I did. But typically I would have made him look something like Cam Newton. Manziel has trouble grasping the whirlwind this season has been for him, and considers himself lucky to have had the opportunity to be in the position hes in now. This season has been incredibly surreal, he said. Its beyond my wildest imagination. Its a true tes tament to how this team has grown every week, because without these guys none of my individual success would be anything. the third quarter, Newberry pulled a fake punt and Alex Wilkens threw to Devonte Flagg for the first down. Brandon Herbert soon connected with Flagg on a 14-yard touchdown pass. Herbert was 6 of 9 for 53 yards with three comple tions to Tray Presley for 44 yards. Prince Alexander, who rushed for 80 yards, scored on a six-yard run to get the Tigers within five points. Newberry (9-3) hosts Trenton High in the state semifinals this week. Wakulla High (11-1) also saw its undefeated season go down to a district oppo nent, as Godby High beat the host War Eagles, 14-7. Wakullas scored came on an 11-yard run by Caleb Stephens. The War Eagles misfired on a scoring threat from the 1 when a fumble went through the end zone for a touchback. Godby plays at Bishop Kenny High on Friday. district. Williston advanced to the third round of the playoffs last season with wins over Trinity Catholic High and Mount Dora High. The Red Devils lost to Lake Highland Prep. Bradford was district runner-up and lost to Mount Dora in the first round. Fort Whites home opener is 7:30 p.m. Wednesday against Newberry High. ASSOCIATED PRESS Tampa Bay Rays Evan Longoria reacts after hitting a home run off Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Jake Arrieta during a game in St. Petersburg on Oct. 3. Rays lock up Longoria Associated Press ST. PETERSBURG Evan Longoria wants to be with the Tampa Bay Rays for his entire big league career. The 27-year-old slugging third baseman got his wish Monday when they Rays agreed to a $136.6 million, 10-year contract that adds six guaranteed seasons and $100 million. I always wanted to be kind of a benchmark player ... the guy that you could think about or associate with the organization, Longoria said. My goal from Day One was to be the first player that played their whole career here, to be the first guy that came into the organization and went out in the organization, and played all the years in between. Theres no better place for me. The new deal includes a team option for 2023 that could make the deal worth $144.6 million over 11 years. A no-trade clause is not included. Its a very exciting day for us, Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg said. For Evan to have the confidence in us, and I know the confidence that we have in him, to re-up so to speak for the long haul. This is just an enormous commitment for us.
DEAR ABBY: I am writing to you in response to Not on My Watch (Sept. 19), about the little boy who repeatedly exposes himself to other children. While correcting this behavior to protect the other children is some-thing the parents and other concerned adults in this childs life should be doing, there may be more going on here that needs to be addressed. Children who have been victims of sexual abuse can exhibit overtly sexualized behav-ior that goes beyond typi-cal curiosity or age-appro-priate sexual development. There are several issues happening with this boy that bother me. The repeated exposure of his private parts to oth-ers is the first. While this behavior is not unusual in young children and can be a normal part of sexual curiosity, the com-pulsive continuation and frequency of his behavior raises red flags. He also mentioned keeping a secret. This is a common tool used by people who abuse children. The man-ner in which he interacted with Not on My Watchs daughter sounds a lot like an interaction between an adult abuser and a child -something he may have been mimicking. Young children who are sexually abused may not have the developmental or verbal capabilities to dis-close what is happening. Often it is through behav-ioral or emotional signs that we discover the abuse. While it is important to protect the children this boy interacts with, the more appropriate response to this situation would be to calmly explain to him why his behavior is inap-propriate, along with a discussion to find out if he has witnessed this behav-ior in others or if he has secrets with anyone. If he discloses something during the discus-sion, it should be immedi-ately reported to the local child protective services and/or police. And if his behavior continues, it would be best to seek professional interven-tion. -JUDY AT CHILD ADVOCACY CENTER DEAR JUDY: Your letter echoes the sentiments of the majority of responses I received about 5-yearold Billy. Thank you for articulating it so clearly. Read on: DEAR ABBY: My wife witnessed a similar sce-nario last year during a play date. A 4-year-old girl was observed putting her hands down the pants of boys her age. Initially we thought it was normal curi-osity; then we suspected she might be a victim. The authorities investigated, and it turned out that her male teenage cousin had been abusing her. -CONCERNED DAD DEAR ABBY: I am a psychiatric nurse who works with children who have suffered various types of abuse. This kind of repeated behavior is a big indication that Billy is being sexually abused himself. The fact that he wants to keep it secret indicates that it is a learned behav-ior. That boy should be taken to see a doctor for a full evaluation, and a call to social services is in order. The call can be anony-mous. It is better to be safe than sorry in this case. -NURSE WHO CARES IN OHIO DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Check your finances.
