Ethics laws: A mixed bag By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org Floridas cities and counties are strengthening their ethics laws and enforcement while state officials have essentially remained silent on such issues since the 1970s, a report released Thursday said. Columbia County Manager Dale Williams said he has been told that county officials have a greater obligation then state offi cials many times in the past. A few months ago, Williams declared a con flict of interest about a relative that applied for an ad valorem tax exemption. In his duties as county manager Williams would have had to pro vide a recommendation on the matter to the Board of County Commissioners. He said he believes state law did not require him to declare the conflict. Even if the state law had required Williams declare the conflict of interest, he wouldnt Cities, counties are cracking down; state hasnt followed suit. Williams Johnson ETHICS continued on 3A DRUGS continued on 3A Prison guard faces charges Report: Tried to bring prescription meds into facility. By TONY BRITT email@example.com A corrections officer at the CCA-Lake City facility was arrested Wednesday and faces felony charges for allegedly attempt ing to bring drugs into the prison. Katie Sloan Minchin, 33, no address provided, was charged with smuggling contraband into prison in connection with the incident. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $25,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs reports, Deputy Shayne Foote was dis patched to CCA shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday in refer ence to an employee attempt ing to introduce contraband into the facility. A CCA inspector met Foote and told Foote he would be interviewing the employ ee, Minchin, who allegedly attempted to bring eight and a half 10 mg hydrocodone pills and a capsule contain ing a combination of asprin, butalbital and caffeine, which is classified as a prescriptiononly narcotic, into the facility. The corrections officer who searches employees before they enter the facility told the inspector and Foote that Minchin reported for work around 5:50 a.m. The corrections officer told investigators she checks employees for illegal con traband and weapons and the search process includes employees taking off their boots, belts and emptying their pockets. The search officer said when she asked Minchin whether she had any contra band, prescription medica tion or anything that could be used as a dangerous weapon, Minchin reportedly reached into her pockets and retrieved an Aleve medication bottle and placed it on her desk. She said Minchin told her to hold the bottle because the K9 used to seach employees for illegal narcotics might sniff it. The officer said Minchin provided no detail as to what Minchin Senator, state rep. to field questions By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org Columbia County residents will have the chance to voice their opinions about issues that are important to them to their state representive and senator at a public hearing in December.

MIAMI Florida health advocates are urg ing the federal government to run the state health exchange, saying Florida officials dragged their heels and have missed cru cial deadlines. Florida CHAIN and several other groups sent a letter Thursday telling U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that the state hasnt had any public meetings or done any of the other legwork that other states have spent months working on. They said its not realistic for the state to create a quality program in time for federal deadlines. Nearly 9,000 Floridians have signed a petition backing the request. The exchange is an online marketplace where residents can shop for health insurance. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has been a vocal opponent of Obamacare but recently softened his stance, saying he will explore the options. Police: Dad killed daughter, self DAVIE A 6-year-old girl is dead after she was killed by her father in a murder-suicide, police said. Davie Police Capt. Dale Engle says the child, her father and a dog appear to have died from carbon monoxide poisoning. Two schoolchildren discovered the bodies in a van parked outside the Davie home of the girls mother Thursday morning. They alerted a neighbor who pulled the child out of the vehicle and attempted to resuscitate her but could not. Investigators believe the childs father, 30-yearold Paul Andrade, parked outside his ex-wifes home and attached a hose from the exhaust pipe to inside the vehicle. Engle says the man was upset that his wife recently remarried. He had an overnight visitation with his daughter when the deaths occurred. Teen charged with killing guard TAMPA Authorities say a teenager with a violent past fatally shot a security officer outside an apartment complex. Tampa police arrested the 16-year-old late Wednesday. They said DNA samples taken from a bicycle found next to the slain security officer linked the teen to the shooting of 38-year-old Michael Valentin. Valentin was killed while on patrol at the apartment complex on Thanksgiving Eve. Police said the teen was arrested Tuesday night on other charges. The Tampa Bay Times reported that after DNA results arrived Wednesday, the teen was arrested in Valentins death. Tampa police Sgt. Bill Todd says the motive was an attempted robbery. He says the teen acknowl edged the bicycle was his. Police say the teen was first arrested when he was 10 and has a dozen felony convictions. Truck driver dies in train wreck ORLANDO A dump truck driver was killed when his vehicle collided with an Amtrak passenger train south of downtown Orlando. Amtrak spokeswoman Christina Leeds said six passengers and two crew members from the Silver Star Train 91 were taken to hospitals for minor inju ries Thursday. The truck driver wasnt identified by police. The train was traveling from New York to Miami, and was on the Orlandoto-Tampa leg of the route when it collided with the dump truck. There were 139 passen gers on the train, and they were going to be taken to their final destinations in Florida by bus. Leeds says some trains in Florida were being held while crew members cleaned up the tracks and that could cause some delays later in the day. 5 Fla. districts named finalists MIAM Five Florida school districts have been named finalists for the U.S. Department of Educations new Race to the Top com petition. Broward, Charlotte, Manatee, Miami-Dade and Seminole county schools are vying for a slice of close to $400 million to help close the achievement gap and prepare students for college and a career. The Obama administra tion has already awarded more than $4 billion in Race to the Top grants to 18 states and the District of Columbia. The Education Department will now focus on grant ing money to individual districts. The department is concentrating on districts where at least 40 percent of students come from lowincome families. Fifteen to 25 districts are expected to receive fouryear grants ranging from $5 million to $40 million. Sixty-one finalists have been named. Lohan charged in NYC and Calif. NEW YORK A ctress Lindsay Lohan was arrested Thursday in New York City after police said she hit a woman during an argu ment, then hours later was charged in California with lying to police and reckless driving for a June crash in which her Porsche slammed into a dump truck. The Mean Girls and Freaky Friday star was arrested at 4 a.m. and charged with third-degree assault. She left a police precinct nearly four hours later with a black jacket pulled over her head. She drove off in a black SUV with a driver. Lohan, 26, allegedly got into the spat with another woman at Club Avenue. She struck the woman in the face with her hand, police said. The woman did not require medical attention. The charges come just after Lohans portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick premiered to harsh reviews from critics and the public. After the June crash, the actress told police her assistant was driv ing, but detectives determined Lohan was behind the wheel, police said. Prosecutors charged her with three misdemeanors: providing false information to police, reckless driving and willfully obstructing a police officer from their duties. No date for Lohans arraignment was announced, but the charges are likely to trigger a probation violation for a 2011 necklace theft case. Kim Kardashian divorce inches toward trial LOS ANGELES Kim Kardashians divorce attorney told a judge Wednesday that the reality star wants to move on with her life but is handcuffed to her estranged husband because the case is not yet ready for trial. Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney told attor neys for Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries to return to court in mid-February to set a trial date to either dissolve or annul the couples 72-day marriage. He didnt set a deadline for depositions and other pre-trial investigation to be completed, but indicated a trial could be held early next year if it is ready by Feb. 15. Humphries, a power forward for the Brooklyn Nets, is seeking an annulment based on fraud. Shatner to attend USS Enterprise retirement NORFOLK, Va. Captain James T.

Traffic stop ends in drug arrest By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org A Lake City man was arrested dur ing a Thursday morning traffic stop after authorities said they found drugs in the mans vehicle. Tashea Laquez Everett, 36, of 413 SE Sharon Lane, was charged with cocaine distribution, possession of cocaine, pos session of drug equipment and destroying evidence in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $36,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs reports, around 12:24 a.m. Deputy J. Latimer stopped a white Nissan Maxima for improper display of the registration sticker. When Latimer spoke to the vehicles driver, later identified as Everett, he reported he detected the odor of an alcoholic bev erage coming from the vehicle. Latimer also reported that Everett was uncooperative and continued to speak over him when he attempted to explain why he pulled him over. Latimer requested that Everett walk to the hood of his patrol car, but he said Everett was attempting to use his cell phone. When Latimer asked him to walk to his patrol car again, Everett reportedly tried to sit on a garbage can. He was asked again to walk to the patrol car and when Everett got there he began to pace back and forth, reports said. Everett reportedly told Latimer he had three mixed drinks during the evening, then Latimer reported he noticed a patch of white powder on Everetts shirt that appeared to be cocaine. When Latimer went closer to Everett to investigate, he reported that Everett saw the powder and attempted to wipe it off. Everett was then secured in handcuffs and Latimer field-tested the substance on Everetts shirt, which tested positive for cocaine, reports said. Everett admitted to having two eight balls of cocaine in his center console, according to Latimer. When searching the vehicle, Latimer reported he found four, individually pack aged amounts of cocaine, which totaled approximately 11 grams. Latimer also reported Everett had numerous small bags which were new and had not yet been used, adjacent to the cocaine. Everett was then arrested and taken to jail, reports said. Everett From staff reports The Columbia County NAACP branch local election will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 15 at the Richardson Community Center, 255 NE Coach Anders Lane, officials said Thursday. The election is open to the public, but only Columbia County branch NAACP members in good standing can vote. The election, which was originally set for earlier this month, was recently suspended after a com plaint was filed with the Florida State Conference of the NAACP. The com plaint reportedly centered around the violation of process regarding the local branchs nominating committee. The election will be conducted by state and/or national NAACP officials. NAACP election Dec. 15 was inside the bottle. The officer reported she found the behavior as odd and after the morn ing rush of all employees entering the facility, she told her superior about the incident and a K-9 officer was brought in to sniff the bottle. The bottle reportedly contained several white pills and a yellow and green capsule pill. The bottle was then con fiscated. When Minchin was speaking to the CCA investigator, she reportedly said she knew the policy established by her employer about bringing pre scription medication into the facil ity and she identified the pills as Lortab and Flornal, both of which she said she had a prescription for. Her explaination for bringing eight and a half pills in was that she was unaware how many were in the bottle. She told investigators she believed there were no more than six pills in the bottle. It was explained to Minchin that six pills would still constitute a policy violation and she said she made a mistake. Minchin told investigators she put the pills in an Aleve bottle Wednesday morning before work and had forgotten the total number of pills inside. The CCA investigator told her it was odd that she put the pills in the bottle and had already forgotten the number inside. Minchin also told the investigator that she was aware that according to policy, the medication she entered the facility with was sup posed to be in the original container. She said she didnt notify her supervising officers that she would be bringing the medication. Minchin said she had a prescrip tion for both medications. Minchin was then interviewed by Foote but provided no additional det rimental information to the case. She then provided a written statement. Foote also collected two state ments from Minchins supervising officers that confirmed Minchin had not informed them she would be entering the facility with her prescrip tion medication. Minchin was then arrested and taken to jail, reports said. DRUGS: Corrections officer faces felony charges Continued From Page 1A for Suwannee, Columbia and Baker counties. All hearings will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 11. State Sen. Charlie Dean (R-Inverness) will also attend. The legislative delega tion hearing for Columbia County will be at Florida Gateway College Library from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. These hearings will provide our fellow citizens the opportunity to express their concerns, share leg islaive ideas and have per sonal input into the legisla tive process, Porter wrote in a press release.

There will be a way for people who dont call in advance to speak at the meeting. The press release asks that if members of the public present a handout, they bring at least four cop ies. The Suwannee County legislative delegation hear ing will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m at Live Oak City Hall, and the Baker County hearing will be held from 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. in the county com mission chambers. HEARINGS: Legislative delegation set to visit on December 11 Continued From Page 1A have had to recuse himself, he said. I did declare the conflict and I took myself out of the discussion, he said. Williams said the County Code of Conduct sets the policy on ethics for county staff members. Lake City Manager Wendell Johnson also said the city also has tough requirements regarding ethical dilemmas and finan cial disclosure. In 2009, the city council had Johnson draft a CouncilEmployee Interaction Policy, which was adopted by the city council at the Sept. 21, 2009, meeting. It expands well beyond the typical guidelines, he said. The study by the Leroy Collins Institute, a think tank at Florida State University, and a state eth ics group, Integrity Florida, said the Sunshine State has a well-documented problem with corruption at every level of government. It said an increase in exemptions to the states open records laws and the unwillingness of lawmakers to continue ethics reform has led to Florida falling behind the rest of the country in ethics enforcement and govern ment transparency. Too often, Florida has been associated with antiethics reform, said Carol Weissert, a Florida State political science professor and director of the Collins Institute named after a for mer Florida governor. We want to be leading, we dont want to be bad examples. The report pointed out that Florida led the nation in federal public corrup tion convictions from 2000 to 2010, according to data from the U.S. Department of Justice. Although some of these convictions were of state officials, many of the corruption scandals involved local government officials. Dan Krassner, executive director at Integrity Florida, also noted that the Florida Ethics Commission, which is frequently criticized as a paper tiger, simply doesnt have enough authority to be effective. They just dont have the tools, Krassner said. As a result, local govern ments have taken the initia tive on strengthening eth ics laws and not sitting idly waiting on the Legislature to take action. In many of the instances, reform followed the corrup tion, Weissert said. While there is always more to do, Florida counties are tak ing the initiative in creating an ethical culture and can serve as leaders for future state action in Florida and across the nation. Weissert and Krassner each professed confidence that new leaders in the Florida Legislature and Gov. Rick Scotts office are on board with efforts to toughen state ethics laws during the upcoming leg islative session that begins in March. We have a commitment from our top state leaders for ethics reform, said Krassner, noting that their effort focuses on ethics pol icy and enforcement, lob bying, campaign financing and procurement. The Associated Press con tibuted to this report.

C ongress hates us. Theres no other conclusion to reach. We are SO ready for some holiday spirit, exhausted by politics and gridlock and deficits and tax debates. And what do we get as were trying to think about presents and trees and pag-eants and carols and food and family reunions? The fiscal cliff. Not a day goes by that we dont hear that the average middle-class family (which means most of us) could face higher taxes of $4,000 next year because Republicans and Democrats in Congress cant get their acts together. For most of us, the idea of paying $4,000 more in taxes is dumb-founding. Were told 18 percent of people approve of the job Congress is doing. Just as we did last August when that figure was 10 percent, we ask: Who are those people? How can they possibly think Congress is doing a good job? So were like the audience at a Ping-Pong game. House Speaker John Boehner says something; the White House responds. Vice versa. And the media ponders: Are they curt? Conciliatory? Did Boehner smile? Cry? Smirk? Is President Barack Obama listening? Are Democrats deserting him? Rallying round him? And once again, it all seems to be about tax cuts for the rich. The really, really rich would have to pay the rates they paid during the Clinton administration, when millions of jobs were created, a surplus seemed in sight and most people were not worried about their next meal. To make us feel better, economists are saying that this isnt really a cliff (the $4,000 wouldnt be due Jan. 1) but more of a slope. Since most political slopes are usual-ly slippery, that doesnt make me feel better. Republicans: Tax increases on anybody will foil job growth even though the evi-dence from the recent past doesnt bear that out at all. Democrats: Any talk of raising the age for Social Security benefits or means-testing it amounts to treason against the middle class. Its enough to make us scream: Hey Congress, there wouldnt be a fiscal cliff crisis if you hadnt created it. All they have to do is create jobs by passing one of the massive put-America-back-to-work bills Congress has been ignoring for two years. All they have to do is stop insisting that Medicaid and Social Security have to be cut. (Social Security is self-funding and is not part of the current crisis; Medicaid is for the seri-ously poor.) All they have to do is make certain the rich pay their fair share. Is it fair that Mitt Romney paid only 13 or 14 percent on millions of dollars, way less than most Americans?) All they have to do is extend the current tax rates for Americans earning less than $250,000. Congress doesnt want us to have a happy holiday. Congress wants us all to be miserable. Congress hates us. Congress hates us OUR OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY On this date:In 1782, the United States and Britain signed preliminary peace articles in Paris, ending the Revolutionary War. In 1803, Spain completed the process of ceding Louisiana to France, which had sold it to the United States. In 1835, Samuel Langhorne Clemens better known as Mark Twain was born in Florida, Mo. In 1874, British statesman Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace. In 1900, Irish writer Oscar Wilde died in Paris at age 46. In 1936, Londons famed Crystal Palace, constructed for the Great Exhibition of 1851, was destroyed in a fire. In 1939, the Winter War began as Soviet troops invaded Finland. (The conflict ended the following March with a Soviet victory.) W e were among the 50-million Americans predicted to travel for the Thanksgiving holidays. We shared the Interstate with cars that switched from lane to lane and followed threateningly close. There was a feeling of frustration, stress, impatience, and even hostility in the air. Suddenly there was a flurry of brake lights, as everyone threw on brakes. Highway speeds of 70 miles per hour plus were instantly stopped dead in their tracks, and we found ourselves part of the bumper-to-bumper, stop-and-go routine. I felt a wave of relief and relax-ation. After about 15 minutes of creeping traffic on both lanes going our way, we passed a thoroughly destroyed and mangled vehicle. I found myself wondering if it was a lesson pre-sented to these drivers to slow down and be safe. Later, I learned that we werent alone. A hundred vehicles piled up together on Interstate 10 in Texas. On our way back from Virginia, we passed a highway sign in Tennessee 833 died this year in traffic. In Georgia, a sign read 1038 traffic deaths so far this year in Georgia. In the human growth and development psychology class that I teach at Florida Gateway College, we learn that the causes of death are different at each age. In infancy, its disease thats the big killer. For senior citizens, its heart disease, stroke and cancer. But for teen-agers, young and middle adults, the leading cause of death is accidents. Death in auto acci-dents leads all other accidental deaths, by far. Actuarial tables charts specifying cause of death for each age group are used to determine your estimated lon-gevity (that is, how long you can expect to live, on the average.) With all causes of death consid-ered, you may be expected to live well into your 70s But, if we exclude accidents as a cause of death, you might expect to live to 90 or 100. What could this mean to you? If you could reduce your risk of dying in traffic, you might expect to live 10 or 20 more years past your expected lon-gevity! What are some ways that could help you reduce your risk of accidental automotive death? Here are some ideas; and I encourage you to be creative and to come up with some ideas of your own. Q Wear seat belts. Almost everywhere, its the law. But maybe one-third to one-fourth still dont. Q Remove all distractions. Its estimated that the majority of accidents are due to distractions like cell phones, texting while driving, adjusting the radio or heater. (I noticed one obviously impaired driver reading a book at 70 mph yesterday!) Q Be patient and thoughtful. Dont follow so close. At 60 mph, if youre two or three car lengths behind, you have no chance of responding in time if something happens to the car ahead. Drop back two or three seconds behind the car in front of you. Relax. Q Dont keep changing lanes. The police recognize lane changing as a major cause of accidents. Q Alcohol, even very small doses, impairs your judgment and reaction time. Prescription drugs usually have side effects detrimental to driving ability. Q Are you tired or sleepy? Get off the road. Take a walk, have a coffee, or quit driving for the day. Q The best drivers focus on their driving, look half-a-mile down the road, and anticipate situations before they happen. Move over early, and make room for cars entering the high-way to merge from the access ramps. The holiday season is just getting started. Be safe. Dont die a senseless, meaningless, and easily preventable death. Youll not only give yourself extra years, but may help lots of oth-ers youre sharing the road with to live longer. I hope you thoroughly enjoy the holiday season. Dont die on the road ANOTHER VIEW T wo reports out this week reveal a trou-bling outlook on teen sexual health in the United States. First, a new policy from the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests members consider routinely prescribing emergen-cy contraception to teen girls to have on hand in case of future need as part of sexual health counseling and that boys get the same information regardless of current or intended sexual behavior. Then, a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that more than 1,000 young people aged 13 to 24 are being infected with human immunodeficiency virus each month -about a quarter of all infections in the U.S. Surveys suggest 60 percent of them dont know theyre infected. Both documents point to a health system struggling to pro-tect teens. More than 300,000 U.S. teenage girls gave birth last year, with 80 percent of the pregnan-cies unintended. While the teen pregnancy rate has declined in the past few years, its still higher than in any other devel-oped nation. The pediatricians say advance prescribing has been shown to increase use of emergency contraception and the odds that it will be used in the critical first 48 hours after unprotected sex. They also say theres no evidence that access to backup contraception increases teen sexual activity. Public health officials have been recommending for several years that children as young as 11 get vaccinated against sexu-ally transmitted human papil-lomavirus. Yet the nations top health officials have overruled efforts to make morning-after pills available to girls younger than 17 without a prescription. That leaves it to doctors to try and protect their younger patients not just from unintended pregnancy, but also from HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. The odds of that care being delivered are daunting. Teens tend to drop out of health care as they age, and particularly avoid pediatricians and family doctors. Teen girls may find their way to gynecologists or womens health clinics, but the availability of care for the gay and bisexual male teens, who make up the major-ity of the new HIV infections, is much less certain, particularly outside major cities. More than 30 years into the AIDS epidemic, awareness of the risks of unprotected sex remains low even among gay and bisexual teens. Only 13 per-cent of all high school students have been tested for HIV. Getting meaningful warnings and information to the teens most at risk demands new approaches and new messengers.

Surely Congress and the White House will find com-mon ground before New Years, when all manner of economic mayhem becomes reality. But by hard to believe, we also mean to question the cred-ibility of every single player in this real-life drama.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, Nov. 30-Dec. 1, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V Assurance of salvation Part 2 Losing heart and feeling wearyThese things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God I John 5:13 A s we continue our study on assurance, I hope it will help someone find that assurance of salvation. Only when one is sure of their destiny can they live a produc-tive life for Christ. Someone said the other day: I dont feel like I am saved, I have never had that feeling that so many talk about. Let me say to you today that salvation does not depend on feeling, it depends on one placing their hope and faith in what Christ did for us on Calvary. It is amazing to discover that the Bible maintains a profound silence on feelings. The concor-dance shows that the word is used only twice in the Word, and in neither case is it employed in connection with our salvation. In Ephesians 4:19, the word describes a Christ-rejecting and hardened sinner. In Hebrews 4:15 the word denotes Christs feeling or His power to sympa-thize. The word feel is found in six places, but in no instance is it related to a true Christian experience. Our salvation rests, not upon fluctuating and fitful feelings, but upon the unassailable facts the Scriptures present. Saving faith directs attention away from self to the Savior. The Bible does not say, He that feeleth good, or feeleth bad, shall be saved, but he that believeth. We are not left to pump dry hearts and bring up feelings, but are to have thoughts wholly occupied with Christ and His finished work on our behalf. We must hasten to say that it is not our experience or even our faith that saves, but Christ alone. He, alone, is the ground of our salvation and certainty. Whatever our changing feelings, our minds must be wholly stayed on the Lord. It cannot be emphasized too strongly that the Bible teaches the truth that all who are regen-erated by the Spirit can be abso-lutely certain of their standing in grace. All who have accepted Christ as Savior are saved, but a few timid souls probe their feel-ings, practicing psychoanalysis. With them it is, I hope so, or, Maybe, or, Perhaps so, while it should be, I know so, I have, or, You have. This is a profound assurance, of which John wrote in I John 5:13. There can be no assurance within unless there is the accep-tance of the direct testimony of the Word of God. Such an assurance is not a mere mental assent to the veracity of scrip-tural statements, but an inner light, produced by believing God. Assurance is no vocal or audible voice or the revelation of an angel, but a condition of being secure, the willingness to take God at His word. Full assurance rests upon unchanging Bible facts. An objective source of our assur-ance are the unconditional promises of God, as in John 6:37; 10:27 & 28; Romans 8:31-39. True assurance is built upon scriptural foundation. What God begins, He will complete (Phil. 1:6). Faith is what the Bible declares produces assurance. O ne of the greatest obstacles to any endeavor is los-ing heart. It often occurs when things are difficult or life seems hard. We often grow weary in doing what is necessary for us to accomplish our goal. Knowing that people needed to be constantly reminded of not giving up as a follower of Christ, the great encourager, the apostle Paul, wrote to the Galatians, let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary (Galatians 6:9). He knew that his brethren would sometimes lose heart just because of the daily grind of living as a Christian. Some days do you wonder if it is really worth all the hassle of living for Jesus? Do you find it hard to do the things which He has asked people to do? Do you just want to give up and forget it all? Everyone, from the days of the apostle Paul until now, has had these thoughts and feelings. It is only natural for these emotions to arise especially when things are not going well. We begin to feel weary. We feel exhausted because of the constant strain to do the right thing. Earlier in this text, Paul said, Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap (Galatians 6:7). This pas-sage often is used to speak of the paybacks a person gets because of some evil thing they have done. However, the verse is not limited to just evil actions. It will also apply to good actions. We are going to reap what we have sown. So, if we continue to work in the kingdom of God, we will reap the things which God wants us to have. We will enjoy the fruit of our labors. We will be able to see and be with God for eternity. For just a moment, lets think about why we might grow weary; why we might lose heart. Because of our exhaustion, we might begin to think, I will never make it, so why keep trying? We might think, The odds are against me, so why keep trying? Because of the constant mental strain that is required to execute the commands of Jesus, we might think I just cannot take it any longer, so why keep trying? Why should we keep trying? Why should we not lose heart? Why should we not grow weary? Because of what we will reap! We will reap eternal life with God. We will spend eternity in His presence. We will be in the company of all the faithful from the beginning of time. We will be surrounded by all those who love the Lord and want to be in His presence. What a wonderful time it will be! From the very first moment that we are in the bosom of Abraham we will find great comfort. All the problems and frustrations of this world will be forgotten. Because of all the joy that we will be experiencing we will find it hard to believe that we even gave a thought to quit-ting; to giving up. When you are feeling like you can no longer make it as a Christian, remember that such thoughts are natural but must be overcome. Dont grow weary! Dont lose heart! Stay faithful. You will never regret it! Q Hugh Sherrill is an ordained minister and Bible teacher at Eastside Baptist Church.

LAKE CITY REPORTER FAITH & VALUES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOV. 30-DEC. 1, 2012 7A7AReligionWhen things arent ideal, consider why O kay the time for making your Christmas holiday plans has arrived. So, are you looking forward to all the festivities or are you just hoping to survive? Of all the things we experience during the holidays, time spent with family probably tops both lists: the most wonderful andr the most difficult. Perhaps you are spending Christmas without a loved one this year because of death or a divorce in your extended family will leave empty seats at the dinner table. It could even be conflict-ing schedules will cause you to miss out on family celebrations. In any case, Christmas can be a season where we realize that things havent turned out like we hoped. Mary knew a little about that: So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expect-ing a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her first-born, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:4-7 Can you even imagine? About that first real labor pain, Mary had to be thinking, This is not how it was supposed to be! Giving birth to your firstborn is a big enough deal, but giving birth to Gods Son? Surely, Mary didnt see the stable and manger when she pictured her due date. Those pretty Nativity scenes we set up each year are wonderful decorations, but the real deal was dirty and it smelled like animals not exactly the place for a newborn. Only because Mary had a heart of thanksgiving and was obedient to Gods plan (I am the Lords servant may it be to me as you have said Luke 1:38) was she able to make those sacrifices with such grace. Instead of a soft, clean bed, she gave birth on the floor of a stable. Instead of her mother and other women tending to her, she was alone with Joseph, who was no doubt as overwhelmed as she was. Instead of a cradle to lay her son, she placed him in a feed trough. Nope this was not at all what she had in mind. As you think about this, and the rest of the story, consider the fact that if Mary and Joseph had been anywhere else, those shepherds whom God chose to be the first witnesses of the birth of his Son, would have missed it. Shepherds were not exactly high on the social ladder, and maybe not whom Mary and Joseph were expecting, but they were sent by a host of Gods angels. Who better to understand the amazing truth that God had just provided the perfect Lamb that would one day be the sacrifice to take away the sins of the world? Could it be that when we feel like there is no room for us someplace, it is because God has made room for us somewhere else or is making room for someone else to be with us? Try this perspective when dealing with holiday plans for your family. If someone cant be there, look around and see who that makes room for perhaps a single adult or someone without any nearby family. If too many miles or your schedule cause you to miss family celebrations, look around to see where God is making room for you. Celebration is ultimately up to us, and the attitude we choose to take things may not work out exactly like we hoped but God may just have something extra special in mind for you this year. Believe it because your heart matters. HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.net By DAVID McFADDENAssociated PressBULL BAY, Jamaica The robed Rastafarian priest looked out over the turquoise sea off Jamaicas southeast coast and fer-vently described his belief that deliverance is at hand. Around him at the sprawling Bobo Ashanti commune on an isolated hilltop, a few women and about 200 dreadlocked men with flowing robes and tightly wrapped turbans prayed, fasted, and fash-ioned handmade brooms smoking marijuana only as a ceremonial ritual. Rasta church is rising, declared Priest Morant, who wore a vest-ment stitched with the words The Black Christ. Theres nothing that can turn it back. The Rastafarian faith is indeed rising in Jamaica, where new census figures show a roughly 20 percent increase in the number of adherents over a decade, to more than 29,000. While still a tiny sliver of the mostly Christian countrys 2.7 million people, Jalani Niaah, an expert in the Rastafari movement, says the number is more like 8 to 10 percent of the popu-lation, since many Rastas disdain nearly all govern-ment initiatives and not all would have spoken to cen-sus takers. Its contemporary appeal is particularly fascinating to young men, especially in the absence of alternative sources for their develop-ment, said Niaah, a lec-turer at the University of the West Indies. Founded 80 years ago by descendants of African slaves, the Rasta movements growing appeal is attributable to its rejection of Western materialism, the scarcity of opportu-nities for young men in Jamaica and an increasing acceptance of it. For the black nationalist Bobo Ashanti commune, the Rastafarian faith is a transforming way of life, where Rastas strive to live a frugal existence uncompli-cated by binding relation-ships to Babylon the unflattering term for the Western world. They share a deep alienation from modern life and Jamaica is perceived as a temporary harbor until prophecy is fulfilled and they journey to the promised land of Africa on big ships. Life is highly regimented at the isolated retreat, cut off from most of the comforts of modern soci-ety. But it has a strong appeal for some, among them 27-year-old Adrian Dunkley, who joined the strict sect two months ago after years of questioning his Christian upbringing and struggling to find work as an upholsterer. This place is helping me a whole heap. Im learning every day, and things are starting to make sense, the new recruit known as Prince Adrian said in the shade of one of doz-ens of scrap-board build-ings painted in the bright Rastafarian colors of red, green and gold. Other Rastafari adherents follow a more secu-lar lifestyle, marked by a passion for social justice, the natural world, reggae music and the ritualistic use of pot to bring them closer to the divine. A melding of Old Testament teachings and Pan-Africanism, Rastafarianism emerged in colonial-era Jamaica in the 1930s out of anger over the oppression of blacks. Its message was spread by the reggae songs cre-ated by musical icons Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear and others in the 1970s, and the move-ment has attracted a follow-ing among reggae-loving Americans, Europeans and Asians. Academics believe at least 1 million people practice it worldwide. In the United States, the population of Rastafarians appears to be steadily growing due in part to jail-house conversions, said Charles Price, associate professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the author of Becoming Rasta: Origins of Rastafari Identity in Jamaica. I regularly get letters from inmates seeking information, Price said. I also get regular invitations to talk to prisoners at local North Carolina juvenile facilities, often from chap-lains trying to figure out what to do.

ASSOCIATED PRESSExiled Tibetans in New Delhi, India, shout slogans durin g a protest rally to express solidarity with Tibetans who hav e selfimmolated. At least 86 people have set themselves on fire since the immolations began in 2009. Tibetan protests against Chinese rule in new phase By CHRISTOPHER BODEENAssociated PressBEIJING Two dozen Tibetans have set them-selves on fire in western China this month in a dra-matic acceleration of the protests against authoritar-ian Chinese rule, activist groups say. The surge in self-immolations, along with an increase in large demonstrations, marks a new phase in the Tibetan protests. At least 86 people have set themselves on fire since the immolations began in 2009. In a change in recent months, most self-immola-tors now are lay people some of them acting togeth-er rather than Buddhist monks and nuns who live in tightly monitored mon-asteries and thus can be more closely watched by authorities. The protests have also sought to avoid direct attacks on authorities and government property, acts which in the past were used to label them as riots or terrorism, providing an excuse for greater oppression. Despite the altered approach, observers see little short-term possibil-ity of Beijing changing its repressive policies. I think the problem will just escalate over time. The government shows no inclination to respond positively to recommenda-tions for reform from the outside or Tibetans, said Michael Davis, a law pro-fessor and expert on Tibet at the University of Hong Kong. In the latest immolation, 24-year-old Kalsang Kyab doused himself with kerosene and set himself alight Tuesday in front of local government offices in Kyangtsa in Aba prefecture, a hotbed of unrest, accord-ing to London-based Free Tibet and other groups. An Aba official said Wednesday he was aware of the immolations but refused to give any details before hanging up. On Monday, about 1,000 students staged a bold pro-test in Qinghai province. Riot police fired shots into the air and released tear gas and beat the students.

Q Tim Kirby is sports editor of the Lake City Reporter Cancer takes a cousinY ou would have thought he already paid his dues fighting death. Joe was born with a heart defect a hole in his heart, as it was explained to us cousins. He never drew a clean breath, was how our grandmother summed it up. That changed in his eighth year when the condition was corrected at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Heart surgery back then wasnt the fairly easy fix it is today, and Joe had the horseshoe scar from his underarm to his chest bone to prove the severity of what he had been through. But, it worked and he grew out of those thin arms and legs in a big way. That was until cancer struck him down this year. By the time it was officially discovered, it was all over. He had the proven record of being a fighter, but this time he never had a chance, and he died on Sunday at 60. Because of the struggles of his younger years, it seemed so unfair. I wanted to be bitter on his behalf. As I wrestled with that mysterious ways thing, I began to see the other side. His death could have happened 50 years ago. Family lore has it that Joe was one of three patients sent to Johns Hopkins, and his doctors thought he was the least likely to make it. Yet, he was the only one to survive. His daddy and mama called before the operation when we were gathered at the grandparents for Sunday dinner. We all spoke to Joe and took turns crying. Joe was on every prayer list in the county, and its power prevailed. My thoughts turned to thanks. Thanks for those years that were given. For his wife and daughters and granddaughter. And for childhood memories of holes dug, helping with the cows and hogs, building forts and hunting days of riding the roads. Watching Joe tear down all manner of machines to see how they worked was a marvel in itself. Thanks, too, for the lives Joe touched with his gentleness, as evidenced by the line at his visitation that could have stretched around the block twice. The mystery began to clear up. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Roger Cray (9) trips up a St. Augustine High runner during a game Nov. 23. No time for CHS to trip upBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High will face an imposing task in the regional final of the Class 6A playoffs at Navarre High at 7:30 p.m. Central time today. Raiders head coach Jay Walls has his team primed for the playoff matchup with an 11-1 record and Navarre hasnt lost since Week 2. Although the two teams share the same record, the philosophies are different for the two coaches. Offensively, we base out of a spread attack, Walls said. We have a running back in Jay Warren that has rushed for over 1,500 yards and Johnny Robinson is also pretty good with over 600 yards rushing. We have what I think is one of the top receivers in the state in Jordan Leggett. We have to get the ball to him and hes had about 50 catches for over 800 yards. Were going to throw a good bit as well, but were a balanced attack. Defensively, the Raiders are similar to the Tigers in that they are stingy on the scoreboard. Were going to base out of a 3-3 stack, Walls said. Weve been solid all season and only allowed 14-15 points per game. Weve had some close ball games, but weve done a good job of being physical against other teams and pressuring the quarterback. Walls also showed his respect for the Tigers. They do a great job of running the football, Walls said. From a defensive standpoint, we definite-ly have to stop the run. Theyre good at disguis-ing things from going in wide open formations and shifts. Walls said both teams share the same philosophy for what they ultimately want out of their offenses. We want to be balanced, he said. And the coach knows Navarre coach Walls has team ready for regional. Final road block By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comOne more roadblock. Thats all that stands in the way of Columbia High and a chance to play for a shot at the state championship. Columbia can secure a home playoff game against the winner of Gainesville and Armwood high schools by defeating Navarre High at 7:30 p.m. Central time today. The Tigers final road game could be their tough-est test yet in the playoffs, but Columbia is ready for the challenge. The first time I became familiar with Navarre was when I purchased the speed track machine for our team three springs ago, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Their coach (Jay Walls) was giv-ing a testimony for the fast-twitch muscle training. The machine has made a difference for Navarre and Columbia. Now the two teams meet as eight teams remain in the Class 6A playoffs. Before he got there, they were a below .500 football team, Allen said. They have incorporated big plays. Theyre having 10-0, 9-1 type seasons. The Tigers were able to get their hands on film for Navarre early and Allen has been impressed with what hes seen on tape despite not being a physically imposing football team. Theyre not intimidating in size, but they have a (running) back (Jay Warren) that has run for 1,500 yards, Allen said. They have a 6-foot, 6-inch receiver (Jordan Leggett) and players that are capable of making plays. Theyve also got good coaching. Its a combination that has proven deadly for opposing teams throughout the rest of the year with Navarres only loss coming against Pensacola High in a 25-24 loss during Week 2. Navarre will run an offense similar to what Columbia has seen out of Baker County and Leon high schools this season with a spread attack. Theyll have a spread mindset, Allen said. Theyre going to run doubles (at receiver), but theyre going to try to run the ball and pop off a few plays. Theyre able to do that at a higher percent-age than most teams. We know theyre going to get after it. Navarre could also throw some things at the Tigers that arent orthodox. Weve seen six or seven films and theyve got a trick play or two that well pre-pare for, Allen said. Allen said this is a game where his defense must shine. This is definitely a game where we need JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High quarterback Jayce Barber (5) looks to e scape a blitz by St. Augustine Highs John Mills (55).

Bulldogs beat Tigers in basketball openerBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comLIVE OAK Columbia Highs basketball team lost on the road to Suwannee High, 67-46, in the opener for both teams. The matchup of Columbias Morris Marshall and Suwannees Jimmie Taylor III proved out. Marshall hit five 3-pointers and scored 19 points, while Taylor led all scorers with 22 points. Our help defense and lack of scoring was our nemesis tonight, Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson said. Suwannee shot lights-out; you have to give them credit. While Morris was the only Tiger in double fig-ures, Suwannee got five treys and 17 points from Deangelo Ross. Raymond Gardner hit four 3-point-ers in the first half as the Bulldogs built a 40-28 lead. Kevarrius Hayes chipped in nine points. Suwannee wrapped things up with a 9-0 spurt midway through the fourth quarter. Marshall had a steal and highlight dunk in the first quarter for an 11-10 Suwannee lead, then the Bulldogs closed the quar-ter on a 10-3 run for a 21-13 lead and Columbia couldnt get any closer. Other scorers for CHS were Tr Simmons with eight points, Andrew Momeka with seven, Wayne Broom with four, and Dillan Hall, Kevin Louder, Kelvin Jonas and Dylan Hinson each with two. Columbia plays Union County High at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Lake Butler. Columbias junior varsity fought back from a 34-27 halftime deficit and won a 63-62 thriller.
LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOV. 30-DEC. 1, 2012 3B3BSports CHS: Tigers will parade through town Continued From Page 1B BCS implications in final weekBy RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressTime to put the BCS puzzle together. Theres not a lot of mystery going into champi-onship weekend. Mostly, everything should simply fall into place. The spot opposite Notre Dame in the championship game will go to Alabama or Georgia, whichever one takes the SEC title. The winners of the Pac-12, Big Ten and ACC championship games will each advance to a big game, as will the team that comes out on top in the Big East matchup between Louisville and Rutgers on Thursday night. Florida and Oregon arent playing this weekend, but both are safe bets to land at-large bids to BCS games. Pencil in the Gators for the Sugar Bowl and the Ducks for the Fiesta. The real BCS intrigue this weekend will happen at a most unlikely place: Detroit, where No. 18 Kent State and No. 19 Northern Illinois will be playing for the Mid-American Conference title Friday. The MAC has never sent a team to the BCS, but it could benefit from the Big Easts struggles this sea-son. BCS rules state that if a champion from a confer-ence without an automat-ic bid, such as the MAC, ranks in the top 16 of the final BCS standings and is ranked higher than a cham-pion from one of the AQ leagues, such as the Big East, that non-AQ champ is guaranteed a spot in the BCS. Neither Rutgers nor Louisville was ranked in last weeks BCS standings, so that opens the back door to a bid for the MAC champ. Kent State was 17th and stands a good chance to move up one spot with a victory. UCLA is in 16th place and has to play at Stanford in the Pac-12 title game on Friday night. I wont talk about that at all, MAC coach of the year Darrell Hazell said about Kent States BCS prospects. Ill talk about Northern Illinois. If our guys dont focus on this Friday we wont have the opportunity to play in some of those big games. This is huge, huge game for this university. Northern Illinois is 21st in the BCS standings and could also get into the top 16, but would need a little extra help. Its just as likely an NIU victory in the MAC title game will eliminate both the Huskies and the Golden Flashes. Boise State, 20th in the standings, plays at Nevada on Saturday and can win a share of the Mountain West title. The Broncos also have a long shot chance at getting into the top 16, but itd be tough for them to jump the MAC champion. If a BCS buster does emerge, the biggest loser could be the Big 12. No. 12 Oklahoma plays TCU on Saturday with a chance to close its season 10-2 (losses against Notre Dame and Kansas State) and earn a share of the con-ference title. The Sooners can still win the Big 12 if they win and Kansas State loses to Texas. Still, theres room for both in the BCS unless space needs to be created for Kent State or one of the other potential BCS busters. If the Golden Flashes (11-1), who lost to Kentucky by 33 early in the season and later won at Rutgers, do find their way into the BCS, expect it to be in the Orange Bowl. The Orange Bowl has the last selection among the BCS bowls and its not likely any other game will be rushing to take Kent State, or Northern Illinois (11-1) for that matter. But rest assured those teams wont be picky. The picks: Today No. 17 UCLA (plus 8 12 ) at No. 8 Stanford, Pac-12 championship Rematch for the Rose Bowl ... STANFORD 31-21. No. 18 Kent State (plus 6) vs. No. 19 Northern Illinois, MAC champion-ship at Detroit KSU RB Dri Archer and NIU QB Jordan Lynch are MACtion stars ... NORTHERN ILLINOIS 35-28.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida States Vince Williams (11) leaps over Timmy J ernigan (8) and Bjoern Werner (95) as they take down Floridas Mike Gillislee (23) in Tallahassee on Saturday. Terry (Calloway) and Felix (Woods) to play really good out there, Allen said. Theyve played extremely well all year. We need Roger (Cray) to play good. We need Roc (Battle) to play good. But one unit will be key for the defense. We need the defensive line, Allen said. They will be key. We need penetra-tion so that theyre not able to let their quarterback sit there and look at the cover-age. They have a tendency to put the ball up in the air and let kids make plays. If were able to make a cou-ple plays on them, Ill feel good. Despite Leggetts size advantage over Columbias secondary, Allen feels good about the matchup. Our line has to get after their butt early up front so that he has a hand in his face while trying to com-plete the pass, Allen said. Hes a big target and our guys might not be that tall, but they can jump. Its going to take more than one guy to beat us. Defensively, the Tigers will prepare for a look theyve already seen once in the playoffs. Theyre going to run a 3-3 stack, Allen said. We last saw that against Bartram Trail. Theyre not big on the ball, but theyre 11-1 so theyre getting after it pretty good. Allen said the Tigers wont change many things up on the offensive end as Columbia looks to keep the ground game pounding the front. Weve got to continue to do the things weve been doing well all season, Allen said. Well pass when we need to, but its imperative that we establish the run quickly. The school is asking that the fans try to give the team a send off on Friday at 10 a.m. as the Tigers leave the school. The procession will proceed up Marion St. and through downtown. The charter buses will have a police escort with sirens as the buses come through town. Fans are asked to wear their purple and gold and wave at the players as they make their way up to I-10. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Ronald Timmons breaks through a tackl e during the Tigers 34-8 win against St. Augustine High on Friday. that at this point, turn-overs could be key to the contest. There are only eight teams left at this point and theyre all really good, Walls said. We have to protect the football and play without mistakes. But Walls said the Raiders cant play tight. We still have to make plays, he said. We need to make plays in the kicking game as well. I think well see some big plays. Weve done well in that area and were kind of aggressive. Walls expects the travel to give the Raiders a leg up. I hope its a huge factor, Walls said. We know that a good football team can play anywhere, but were in the advantage that we get to stay in our routine and dont have to travel. Both teams enter on 10-game winning streaks and Walls said the Raiders will play with a lot of confidence. I think its a positive for us that we lost early, Walls said. Each week weve gained a bit of confidence and weve seen our team build in confidence. Were still taking it one game at a time and not looking back or ahead. We want to get better in what we do every day. We have to continue to keep doing the things that we do. Football is a tough sport, but winning makes it fun.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOV. 30-DEC. 1, 20124BSPORTS Backfields come in twos for SECBy JOHN ZENORAssociated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. That running back duo in the Southeastern Conference championship game has been punishingly effective all season. Pick a team No. 3 Georgia or No. 2 Alabama the description fits. Bulldogs freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall roll into Saturdays game with 1,858 combined yards and 22 touchdowns. The Crimson Tide counters with Eddie Lacy, fresh-man T.J. Yeldon and their collective 1,848 yards and 24 TDs. The stats hardly settle the debate of which tail-back tandem is better. Theyve got two great running backs, Tide cor-nerback Dee Milliner said. Weve got two, three great running backs here. Well, thats no help.Theres not an easy answer. Both backfield combinations have been terrific. If one player gets winded, the other goes in. One gets a little dinged up, no problem. Fresh legs, and no rest for the weary defenses. It has been Alabamas formula since Nick Saban arrived. The two-tailback system has flourished with 2009 Heisman Trophy win-ner Mark Ingram and 2011 finalist Trent Richardson, and both gained 700-plus yards as freshmen. Yeldon has already surpassed the first-season pro-duction of either of those two first-round NFL draft picks with 847 yards and 10 touchdowns. Saban said the system is especially effective if the backs present defenses with different styles, like Gurley and Marshall. Todd is a little bit like our guys in a way, he said. Hes big, physical, can run inside, can run outside. Hell make you miss, but has power. Their second guy is a very, very good back in all those regards, but hes a very fast guy. Theres a change of pace there that the players have to be aware of. Gurley has been the most prolific of the bunch. He is second in the SEC with 1,138 yards while he and Lacys 14 touchdowns are tied for tops among run-ning backs. Lacy has 1,001 yards. Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson said Yeldon and Gurley compare favorably. They both run really hard, Robinson said. When I look at Todd I just see lower body. You know, people try to hit him high a lot of times, and he just keeps turning his legs and gets those extra yards and makes a lot of people miss. What Ive seen of Yeldon, he has the speed to get around the edge. He turns up a lot on people that dont think hes as fast as he really is. Youve got to hold the edge of the defense or else hes gone. I think Todd has speed as well. Hes obviously looking a little bit faster. But I would say Todds a little bit bigger and more of a bruiser. Georgias backs have the clear advantage in one area: Nickname. No. 3 Gurley and No. 4 Marshall (720 yards, eight touchdowns)) have been dubbed Gurshall after Herschel Walker, who led the Bulldogs to the 1980 national title as a freshman. Their numbers just happen to smush into his 34, and Walker has praised the two freshmen. Thats great, to have one of the best players to ever come through college football to say great things about me, Gurley said. But Ive got to keep work-ing. Hes not into any comparisons with the former superstar, either. Were not trying to be like nobody else, Gurley said. But its a cool thing for the fans. Gurley is one touchdown away from matching Walkers 15 as a freshman. He and Marshall have already blown by the 1,739 yards and 14 combined touchdowns by Arkansas freshmen and future first-rounders Darren McFadden and Felix Jones in 2005. Playing as a true freshman in the SEC, two guys, thats enough said right there at the University of the Georgia, Alabama defensive end Damion Square said. I know theyve got some big-time guys there. For those guys to come in and play early and often, that makes them great. Those guys run hard. Theyre going to make you pay when you make mistakes. Come in and tackling those guys, theyre going to make a 2-yard gain a 7-yard gain. Youve got to be really fundamentally sound when youre playing against those guys. Square passed on the question of which tailback tandem is the best. I play for the University of Alabama. So... he said. Maybe Saturdays game will provide a more conclu-sive answer. ASSOCIATED PRESSGeorgia running back Todd Gurley (3) reacts after scor ing a touchdown against Georgia Tech during the first qu arter of an NCAA college football game on Nov. 24 in Athens, Ga. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia County native and Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan is seen on the sidelines before the start of the game against Florida on S aturday.FSU looks to secure ACCAssociated PressGeorgia Tech (6-6, 5-3) vs. No.13 Florida St (10-2, 7-1, 8 p.m. (ABC) Line : Florida State by 14. Series record : Florida State 12-9-1. Whats at stake : Atlantic Division winner Florida State has won a dozen league championships since joining the league in 1992. Georgia Tech, which qualified after Miami offi-cials decided to skip the game in anticipation of NCAA sanctions, defeated Clemson in the leagues championship game in 2009, but was forced to vacate the title because of NCAA sanctions. Georgia Techs string of 16 straight seasons being bowl eligible may also be in jeopardy if it loses. Key matchup : Florida States defense, which is ranked second nationally, against Georgia Techs high-powered triple-option offense that averaged an ACC record 323.3 yards a game on the ground. The Seminoles allowed just 85 yards a game rushing. A high-scoring affair could occur if Florida State has trou-ble containing the Jackets although if it comes down to a kick, the Seminoles have all-time NCAA field goal and scoring leader Dustin Hopkins available. Players to watch : Florida State: DE Bjoern Werner, a Nagurski finalist who wreaked havoc with opposing offensive lineman all season and was the top vote getter in the ACCs all-conference defensive unit. Werner has 13 sacks and seven deflected passes despite having been fre-quently double-teamed during the season. His abil-ity to stop the run will be tested. Georgia Tech: QBs Tevin Washington and Vad Lee are the igniters in the Georgia Tech offense and will need some protection against Werner and others in Florida States ACC-best defense to have a chance at upsetting the Seminoles. The Yellow Jackets didnt get into the end zone last week in a 42-10 drub-bing at Georgia until mid-way through the fourth quarter. Facts and Figures : Florida State won the first ACC championship game in 2005 and is mak-ing its third appearance. Stanford, UCLA Pac-12 title rematch a mind gameBy ANTONIO GONZALEZAssociated PressSTANFORD, Calif. This week has been unlike any other in the 20 years Mike Gleeson has been Stanford footballs video director. Even though theres a tight turnaround between the Cardinals 35-17 victory last Saturday at UCLA and the Pac-12 championship game rematch Friday night, Gleesons typical task is simplified. All he has to do is add video from the first game and recalculate statis-tics to the preparation done last week. After that, things get complicated. The staff, in a way, they have to shuffle the deck as if it didnt happen. Or did it? Gleeson said. How do you want to look at it? Do you want to change things? Do you want to keep things? Now weve got the mind games with UCLA. What did they show? What do we think they showed com-pared to what theyll do this week? Well, we have 11 other games. So we kind of know what theyre about, just like they know what were about. But did they show everything that they could against us? Maybe. Maybe not. Thats the mind game. Call last week a dress rehearsal, although even that may be in question. Stanford will wear its black uniforms, helmets and shoes for only the fourth time. UCLA is expected to swap out those dark blue L.A. Night jerseys for its traditional white tops, gold pants and gold helmets on the road. With the league title at stake, what else the eighth-ranked Cardinal (10-2, 8-1) and the No. 17 Bruins (9-3, 6-3) bring out of the closet for the sequel at Stanford Stadium might not be so obvious. They will be the first opponents in major college football matched against each other for a regular-season finale and conference title game in consecutive weeks. After the opener at the Rose Bowl, booking a return trip to Pasadena for The Granddaddy of Them All on Jan. 1 could be tricky. Both staffs lost a day of game planning and prac-tice, and the preparation has everybody involved con-templating how to approach Part II. I cannot recall ever being in this situation before, UCLA coach Jim Mora said. I dont know that it benefits either team, or is hard on any team. It just comes down to going out on Friday night and executing. Any familiarity we have with them, theyll have with us. Stanfords video staff usually compiles highlights of about four games from when its opponent faced a team that mirrored what the Cardinal does, includ-ing last seasons meeting if the opponent has the same coaching staff or style. In this case, last weeks game stands for last sea-sons game. Then producers send the videos and analytical reports to coaches and players through an appli-cation on their iPad play-books.

Stanford won the game 35-17.

(N) Badgers get redemption shot in Big Ten title gameBy NANCY ARMOURAssociated PressWisconsin is in some unfamiliar territory. No, not the Big Ten title game. The Badgers count as grizzled veterans after playing in last years inau-gural conference champion-ship, well acquainted with all the hype and hoopla that comes with it. A trip to the Rose Bowl isnt so daunt-ing, either. The Badgers, after all, rang in the last two New Years in Pasadena. Its being so, well, mediocre, thats new for Wisconsin. Winners of the Big Ten title the last two years, the Badgers are get-ting a chance at the first three-peat in school histo-ry Saturday by default. With Ohio State and Penn State ineligible for the post-season, its Wisconsin play-ing No. 14 Nebraska on Saturday for the title and a trip to the Rose Bowl. Obviously it is different and strange this year because of our record going into this game, said Montee Ball, who last week became major college foot-balls all-time touchdown leader. But its not our fault what happened to the teams that cant play in this game. Were most definitely going to take the oppor-tunity and were going to run with it. Were going to go to Indianapolis and play hard. Wisconsin (7-5, 4-4 Big Ten) stumbled to the fin-ish of the regular season with three losses in its last four games, all in overtime. It tied for fifth in the Big Ten, and lost more than three conference games for only the second time in coach Bret Bielemas seven seasons. Most years, that would have relegated the Badgers to a bowl named for an automotive company or bar food, played so early theyd be home in plenty of time to watch the BCS bowls from the comfort of their couches. But some-body had to represent the Leaders Division in the Big Ten title game, and without the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions, the Badgers were the best of the rest. I didnt set the rules with how everything has worked out. I didnt pick the teams that were in there, cen-ter and team captain Travis Frederick said. This is how its worked out, and its going to come down to us and Nebraska. To be fair, the Badgers werent all that far from being a good team. Possibly even a really good one. Only one of their losses was by more than three points, and that was the 21-14 OT loss to Ohio State. Wisconsin led or was tied going into the fourth quarter in three of the losses. It also played its last three games with a quarterback who had played all of three snaps thats snaps, not starts since the 2009 regular-season finale. A play here, a play there, and the Badgers could be headed to Indianapolis with a far more impressive record.

With Ohio State and Penn State both i neligible for the postseason, Wisconsin will represent th e Leaders Division in the title game.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 1, 2012 DEAR ABBY: Im engaged to someone I love very much. I am 36 and he is 44. We get along great, but hes in a rush to get married. It will be my first and his second. We got engaged three months ago, and he wants the wed-ding to be in February. The date he picked is his fathers birthday. My other problem is, he is always pawing at me. He always needs to be touching me or calling me his beautiful angel. Its good to hear that once in a while, but not five times a day. I love being with him, but sometimes I need my own space. If I say no, he gets defensive and worried that Im going to leave him. We spend practically every waking (and non-waking) moment together. I am almost at a breaking point. Help! -OVERWHELMED IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR OVERWHELMED: I hope you realize that the behav-ior you are describing is not an indication of love, but of extreme insecurity. His need to constantly touch you, his defensive-ness if you say you need some space, and his fear that you will leave him WONT CHANGE if you marry him. I am also con-cerned about the way your wedding date was chosen, because the decision wasnt arrived at mutually. Ask yourself this: If he makes what should be joint decisions, and you have no space for yourself because of his insecurity, is this the way you want to spend a LIFETIME? These could be symptoms of an abuser. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Im 25, have an associates degree in health management, completed a CRMA (Certified Residential Medication Aide) course, and Im now on my way to obtaining my bachelor of science in health management. It sounds like Im head-ing toward a great future, right? My problem is I have zero confidence in myself. Im scared to death of making mistakes as a CRMA, and equally scared of being success-ful. Everybody says how proud they are of me and that Im headed toward great things, but Im not sure I can do this. I am struggling to find self-con-fidence because if I dont believe in myself, I wont achieve anything. What can I do to put myself out there and take the steps I need to accomplish my goals? -NEEDS A BOOST IN MAINE DEAR NEEDS A BOOST: Self-doubt can be an asset if it causes you to strive harder to master the skills you will need in your profession. However, because you are afraid of both failure AND success, the surest way to conquer your fears would be to talk about them with a coun-selor at your school or to a psychologist. What you are dealing with is not as unusual as you may think. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband insists that wearing a white T-shirt when out and about is the same as wearing a colored one with a design on it. I think hes wearing underwear as outerwear and is being too casual. We do not live in a rural community. We are in a suburb of San Diego. Life is relaxed here, but not THAT relaxed. Do you have an opinion? -DRESSING UP, NOT DOWN DEAR DRESSING UP: I do have a thought or two on the subject. If your husband is comfortable this way, leave him alone. Because you are the one concerned with appearanc-es, continue dressing up to create the impression you want and let him dress down and suffer the consequences -if there are any, which I doubt. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend Alexs mom is the most controlling person I have ever encountered. We only get to see each other on weekends because he lives an hour away from me. When we do see each other, its for one-third of the day. Alex has to spend the other two-thirds with her. Im 22 and he is 21. He is also not allowed to stay with me. Alex has to lie to her about where hes staying in order to be able to spend time with me. His mom has added a feature to his cellphone in order to see where he is 24/7, and would cancel his service if he refused it. I love my boyfriend unconditionally, but his mom is driving us both crazy and turning our relationship into a trio. We have tried getting her to back off, but it just makes her worse. I am at a loss as to what to do. What do you think we should do? -EXTREMELY WORRIED IN MISSISSIPPI DEAR EXTREMELY WORRIED: Frankly, you should be worried. Your boyfriend is an adult who seems to be firmly under his mothers thumb. He is completely dependent. At 21, Alexs activities should not be monitored, nor should he be spending two-thirds of his day with his mother. If nothing else, he should be looking for a job so he can sever the umbilical cord before it strangles him. You cant fix this. HE has to do it. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My former roommate and I took a short trip to Florida. We agreed we would split the hotel costs. Id reserve the room; she would reim-burse me after the trip. She paid me a month later, and I deposited her check as soon as I could get to my bank, which was three weeks later. When the check went through, she attacked me because she said it drained her account! I apologized, but told her I was upset that she was making it seem like it was my fault. I think that if someone is low on funds, the person should be more diligent in balancing his or her checkbook. Had I known she had money problems, I would have waited to deposit her check. It has been months, and my once best friend still wont speak to me. Was I wrong? -AT FAULT? IN KENTUCKY DEAR AT FAULT?: No, you were not. It was your friends responsibil-ity to make sure there were enough funds in her account to cover the check she gave you. She may be embarrassed, which is why she doesnt want to talk to you. People who are angry at themselves some-times blame others. Its a sign of immaturity. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been dating Kristen for seven months. She is great as far as personality, physi-cal chemistry, similar likes and dislikes, and patience go. She is ALMOST every-thing I have ever wanted in a girl. However, I have never called her beauti-ful, although she has made a couple of fishing comments to try to get me to say it. In my eyes, that would be a lie. Kristen is attractive, but not beautiful. I have always thought that anyone Im planning on spending the rest of my life with would be beautiful to ME, and Id let her know according-ly. Your thoughts? -NOT SHALLOW IN PHOENIX DEAR NOT SHALLOW: Candidly, I think that in spite of all of her wonder-ful qualities, Kristen is not the one for you. And you are not the one for her because what she needs is validation you cant give her. Women need to feel beautiful in the eyes of the men they love, and because you plan to spend your life with someone who is beautiful to you, you should both move on. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): A change due to an emotional revelation will help you push forward with innovative plans for the future. Pick and choose your friends, part-ners and geographical location to suit your needs. A secret may be difficult to keep. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Associate with groups that have something to offer. A partnership will contribute to a more fulfill-ing lifestyle. You will learn from someone accom-plished in your field. Share what you discover and you will receive help in return. Love is in the stars. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Excess will be your downfall. Refrain from making choices based on hearsay. Without knowing exactly where you stand and whats available, you are likely to end up losing. Your past must be dealt with before you move for-ward. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Sharing will be what counts. Getting out with friends or a lover will spice up your life and give you a fresh look at what you can strive for in the future. Love is enhanced. A part-nership will take a serious turn. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont put pressure on others, or you may get the same in return. Find an outlet for your stress. Begin an unusual hobby, activity or travel to an exciting destination. A break from tedious work or making personal chang-es will have a positive influence. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Satisfaction is what you must strive for. Show everyone what you are capable of doing and you will impress someone who has something that will help you advance further. Traveling will bring posi-tive results. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stop worrying and start doing. You cant change the past, but you can change the present. Use your past experience to fix a wrong or to change the way you proceed now. Personal problems will develop if you put up with emotional blackmail. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont hesitate to pur-sue a creative dream. Your biggest hurdle to cross is your lack of belief in your capabilities. Let your tal-ent speak for itself and let your confidence grow. You will find the success you are searching for. Take a chance. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dealing with partnerships will be dicey if you exaggerate. Stick to basics and be honest about the facts. Whether a per-sonal or business relation-ship, maturity and good intentions will determine the outcome. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone in a powerful position will notice you if you focus on your beliefs and your abilities. Dont hold back if you have something to say. A partnership looks promising. Love will reign supreme. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Protect what you have and say little to raise suspicion. Concentrate on your home and mak-ing your surroundings more desirable and geared toward your health and wellness. Someone from your past can make a dif-ference to a choice you must make. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look over what you need to complete before the year comes to a close. Spend money fixing up your place or investing in something that will ensure that you advance in the future. A promise or com-mitment will improve your lifestyle. +++++ THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Too much togetherness may result in couples breakup Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

When Elliott shows up at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola,Fla.,next week tobegin preparations for the 45th annualSnowball Derby,hell be in the unique posi-tion of being the defending winner of one ofthe premiere short track races in America,but also still a teenager. Elliott,who will turn 17 on Wednesday, already has won some of short track racingsbiggest events,including the Winchester 400at Winchester Speedway in Indiana and aLate Model race at North WilkesboroSpeedway.And hes the youngest winner inthe history of the Snowball Derby,a race thathas been won by some of NASCARs best rac-ers including Darrell Waltrip,Donnie Allison,Pete Hamilton,Jody Ridley and Kyle Busch. Elliott has raced at Five Flags several times this summer and feels hes in positionto contend for the win again. Im always excited to get to race at Five Flags,said Elliott,one of the tracks formerchampions.We learned some things racingthere this year,and I feel like weve got asgood a shot at winning as anybody. Elliott also is anxious to see if NASCARs decision to lower the minimum age for driversin the Camping World Truck Series to 16 atroad courses and ovals less than 1.1 mileswill lead to some truck races for him nextyear. I was definitely excited when I heard about that,he said,adding that his participation inthe series would have to be approved byHendrick Motorsports,where hes been signedas a developmental driver,and by Aarons,hisprimary sponsor. It depends on whether they think its the right thing to do,but its definitely an option. Elliotts 2013 plans,which are uncertain at this point,also could include some ARCAevents.Burton has surgeryNASCAR driver Jeff Burton had surgery last week to alleviate symptoms of carpal tun-nel syndrome. After feeling some recurring symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome,my physician and Idecided routine surgery would be best for thissituation,Burton said in a release from hisRichard Childress Racing team.There is nosuch thing as an off-season in this sport,so Iwanted to get it done as soon as possible to beready for my Caterpillar Visitors Centerappearance with Richard [Childress] earlynext month.Plus,we have many test sessionsplanned in December with the No.31Chevrolet team in preparation for the 2013season with my new crew chief LukeLambert. I will be ready to go.Burton is coming off two of the most disappointing seasons of his career.He hasnt wona race since 2008,posted just two top-five fin-ishes in each of the past two seasons and fin-ished 20th and 19th in the points standings.Tragedy for gas manWWOC in Charlotte reported that Bryce Rueger,the seven-year-old son of RyanNewmans gas man Andy Rueger,was killedlast week in an ATV accident near his homein Salisbury,N.C.A memorial fund is beingestablished. NOTEBOOK Greg Ives in at JR MotorsportsGreg Ives,who was announced this week as the new crew chief for Regan Smith at JRMotorsports,brings strong credentials to hisnew job.He was the race engineer for all fiveof Jimmie Johnsons Sprint Cup champi-onships,and hes been involved in racing formost of his life. His first racing experiences were as a crew member for his father Roger and brotherSteve on the short tracks of the Midwest. We had an old barn in back of our house with a concrete pad for the car,said Ives,a33-year-old native of Bark River,Mich.Theearliest job I can remember was cleaning thecar.I was five or six years old,and small,andcould crawl around and clean the car.Then Iswept everything out. From there,he eventually drove some himself,with a fair amount of success. If I showed up,I was a threat to be fast, contending for wins and in the points chase,he said. JR Motorsports also announced that it likely will field just one full-time car next year,asno sponsor has been signed to back ColeWhitt,who raced for JR Motorsports thisyear along with Danica Patrick,who is mov-ing to a full-time Cup ride next year. Team co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr.is set to run a limited number of Nationwide Seriesraces for JR Motorsports next year.Patrick announces divorceNASCARs Danica Patrick announced on her Facebook page last week that shes divorcing herhusband,Paul Hospenthal. I am sad to inform my fans that afterseven years,Paul and Ihave decided to amica-bly end our marriage,she said.This isnteasy for either of us,but mutually it hascome to this.He hasbeen an important per-son and friend in mylife and thats how wewill remain moving for-ward. Hospenthal,a physical therapist who methis future wife whiletreating her for a yogainjury,is 47.Patrick is 30. Also last week,Patrick received the 2012 Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver Award,which is determined by online voting by racefans.Townley joins Red Horse team Camping World Truck Series driver John Wes Townley said last week that hell be driv-ing a truck for Red Horse Racing next season.Townley,22,said hell essentially take over theNo.7 team that fielded trucks for John Kingand Parker Kligerman this season. King won at Daytona,and Kligerman was victorious at Talladega.Townley said hebelieves he,too,can win in the Red Horsetruck,which is owned by Tom DeLoach,a for-mer Mobil 1 executive and fellow Georgianative.DeLoach is from Statesboro,whileTownley is from Watkinsville,but it was inDeLoachs hometown that Townleys fatherTony and his partner Zach McLeroy foundedthe Zaxbys restaurant chain that will sponsorTownleys truck. John Wes Townley,who was criticized early in his career for crashing trucks fairly fre-quently,had a solid season in 2012.He failed tofinish just two races,had two top-10 finishesand eight more of 16th or better in 21 starts. I feel like I did what I needed to do this year, which was finish races and get experience,Townley said.Now the goal is to go out thereand win some races,and I think I can do it. Townley also said hes hoping to make several Nationwide Series starts next season. NUMERICALLYSPEAKING Career poles forSprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski (NewHampshire in 2010 andCharlotte in 2011) Career lapsled in Sprint Cup for Brad Keselowski(735 this year) Nationwide Seriesvictories for Brad Keselowski Career top-five fin-ishes for Brad Keselowski (13 of themthis year)1,083 2 24 20 Jeff Burton (NASCAR photo) Danica Patrick(NASCAR photo) In addition to picking up a nice trophy and aplace in NASCAR history for winning the2012 Sprint Cup championship,Brad Keselowski is in line to collect millions of dollar s in bonus money and from other sources.Histake from NASCAR alone,which is split withhis Penske Racing team,is estimated to beabout $6 million. So what does a 28-year-old single person plan to do with that kind of cash? Keselowski said on last weeks NASCAR teleconference that one of the toyson his list is atank. Ive been looking into that really all summer long,he said.It all started with WallyDallenbach,who was telling me a story abouthaving one.I thought,wow,that would be awe-some.So obviously living where I do and beingaround Dale [Earnhardt] Jr.,I thought it wouldbe cool if we both got a tank and chased eachother around in the woods with them.Its kindof our deal. I promised myself if I won it,I would buy one whether Dale does or not.It was kind of a littlebit of motivation,I should say. He said hes not really into buying trophies for himself,but a tank is different. I think a tank would be pretty cool,he said. I want to put one together and have some funwith it.When Im done playing with it,Ill justpark it in the driveway and scare off people whoarent supposed to be around.I dont know.Itwill be fun either way. He said hell likely try to find a vintage model.I want to get something from World War II to Korea era,something in the 40s to mid-50s,era,he said. A good-running tank shouldnt put too much of a dent in Keselowskis wallet.Theyrefor sale on military vehicle websites startingat around $250,000. As NASCARs newest champion,Keselowski drew plenty of notice and some criticism forappearing to have consumed several adult bev-erages before some of his post-race interviewsfrom Homestead-Miami Speedway in the hoursafter he clinched the Cup championship.But ona teleconference with reporters two days later,he expressed no regrets. I think everybody faces their criticism no matter what you do,he said.Youre nevergoing to get all of the people to like somethingthat you do.Its not possible.Someones alwaysgoing to dislike something you do,and you haveto roll that off your shoulders and move on. He said that if a person remains true to himself,itll all work out in the long run. I had fun,and I wanted to show that fun and enjoy it with others,he said.Im more thrilledthat people enjoyed [it] than I am disappointedto questioning my path because someone elsedidnt like it. TV ratings for last weeks Sprint Cup season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedwaycontinued a trend of Chase races drawingfewer viewers than comparable events lastyear. The Ford EcoBoost 400 earned a 3.5 household coverage rating,averaging3,444,706 viewers,according to the NielsenCompany.Those numbers were down fromlast years 3.6 rating with 6.8 million view-ers. Overall,the 10 Chase races on ESPN had a rating average of 2.7 with 4.2 millionviewers,compared to a 3.1 rating and 4.763million viewers last year.Chase wrap Champ to buy big toy; downplays criticsBrad Keselowski winning the Sprint Cup title.(NASCAR photo)By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick
