COMP TIME INVESTIGATION Former principal falsified records, school officials say. Docs altered at RMS: Report J ASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Construction crews are hard at work on the new Olive Garden Italian Restaurant on U.S. 90 on Thursday. The restau rant, along with LongHorn Steakhouse, which is being constructed next door, is scheduled to open next spring. By DEREK GILLIAM dgilliam@lakecityreporter.com Former Richardson Middle School Principal Bessie Whitfield falsified school dis trict documents resulting in hundreds of hours of undoc umented paid leave to teach ers at the school, according to a Columbia County School District inves tigation. Whitfield also coerced nonreappointed employees to take unearned leave paid for by the school district, the report said. The investigation into improper use of compensa tory time, which is time off with pay for overtime com monly called comp time, found only Richardson Middle School failed to follow district guidelines and policies. We found no indications of improper application of dis tricts guidelines and polices regarding comp time, other than those discovered and reported to (Michael Millikin) earlier regarding Richardson Middle School, a memo to then Superintendent Millikin dated Sept. 25 said. RMS continued on 3A Whitfield Coming soon From staff reportsLIVE OAK A Lake City man was arrested on a Suwannee County warrant and faces felony charges for allegedly taking part in a house burglary earlier this month. Curtis Mitchell, 22, of 399 NW Bascom Norris Drive, was charged with burglary and grand theft in connection with the crime. According to Suwannee County Sheriffs reports, on Dec. 3, Mitchell and two other Columbia County men forced their way into a Suwannee County home and stole numerous items, including a flat-screen tele vision, a surround-sound speaker, a Playstation 3 game console and a Wii gaming console, along with a hunt ing vest with 1,000 rounds of ammunition. Mitchell Man faces burglary, grand theft charges POLICE Rice out of the running By BEN FELLER and JULIE PACE Associated Press WASHINGTON Susan Rice, the embattled U.N. ambassador, abruptly withdrew from consider ation to be the next secretary of state on Thursday after a bitter, weekslong standoff with Republican senators who declared they would vigorously fight her nomination. The reluctant announcement makes Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry the likely choice to be the nations next top diplomat when Hillary Rodham Clinton departs soon. Support for the possible choice of Rice had been waning. In another major part of the upcoming Cabinet shake-up for President Barack Obamas sec ond term, former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska now is seen as the front-runner to be defense secretary, with official word coming as soon as next week. Obama has been weighing wheth er a Rice nomination would be worth the fight. He accepted her decision with a shot at Republicans. While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, he said. If Obama taps Kerry for State, the president will create a poten tial problem for Democrats by opening a Senate seat one that recently defeated Republican Sen. Scott Brown is eyeing. Brown had been elected as Massachusetts other senator in January 2010 after Democrat Ted Kennedy died, stunning the political world as he took the seat held by Kennedy for decades. Brown lost that seat in the November election. Rice had become the face of the bungled administration account of what happened in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012 when four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, were killed in what is now known to have been a terrorist attack. Obama had declared he would chose her for secretary of state regardless of the criticism, but such a choice could have gotten his second term off to a turbulent start with Capitol Hill. Withdraws her name from consideration as secretary of state. ASSOCIATED PRESS U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice during a news conference at the U.N. on June 7.

Crist officially joins Democrats ST. PETERSBURG Joined by a gaggle of news media, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist on Thursday officially filed paper work to become a Democrat in his hometown of St. Petersburg, more than six years after he was elected to the states top job as a Republican. The move wasnt a surprise; last week, the former Republican tweeted his intention to change parties, talked to reporters about the switch and filled out his voter registration card at a White House holiday function. On Thursday, Crist was mum on whether he would challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in 2014. I cant tell you how comfortable I am as a Democrat, Crist said. I just want to listen. This is a process thats very impor tant to me and I dont take it lightly. Crist was elected gov ernor as a Republican in 2006 and ran unsuccessful ly for the U.S. Senate as an independent in 2010, los ing a three-way contest to Republican Marco Rubio. Woman reports driveway stolen REDDICK Sheriffs detectives have a real who dunit on their hands after a north Florida woman came home and found her drive way missing. According to deputies, the woman felt a bump when she drove onto her driveway Tuesday night. She got out of her vehicle and discovered about 300 square feet of brick pavers were missing. The Ocala Star-Banner reported she told deputies the pavers were in place when she left home about 7:30 that morning. A witness told deputies about seeing two men dig ging up the pavers. But the activity didnt seem suspi cious because construction workers were building a barn on the property. The witness told investigators the men were driving an older model, black pickup with a flat-bed trailer. State gives man full pardon TALLAHASSEE Florida is wiping away a drug conviction of a man who spent 27 years in pris on for a murder he didnt commit. Gov. Rick Scott and members of the Florida Cabinet on Thursday gave a full pardon to William Dillon. Dillon was charged with drug possession in 1979. He was later convicted of the 1981 beating death of James Dvorak on a Brevard County beach. But DNA evidence showed he did not com mit the crime, and Dillon was freed from prison in November 2008. The state Legislature approved paying Dillon $1.35 million in compensa tion. Scott signed the bill and personally apologized to Dillon. The 53-year-old Dillon said he asked for the par don as part of the process of restarting his life. Its more of a sense of saying, Were clearing you and were giving you a clean slate, Dillon said after the governor granted the pardon. Dillon now lives in Chapel Hill, N.C., and recently released a CD about his experiences in the justice system. Court rejects loud stereo law TALLAHASSEE A state law making it illegal to blast loud music from a car stereo has been declared unconstitutional. The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a pair of Pinellas County cases. Both motorists were cited for playing their car radios too loudly. The justices called the law unconstitutional and said it violates free speech rights for several reasons including that it exempts vehicles used for business or political purposes. The high court did not have a problem with a requirement in the law that a stereo must be plainly audible from 25 feet or more in order to be illegal. A lower court had questioned the constitu tionality of that standard. Instead justices ruled that people have a right to play amplified music and that the law is intrusive. Convicted rapist gets 4 life terms TAMPA A Tampa man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after a Tampa judge sentenced him to four consecutive life sentences for the 2009 rape of a 75-year-old widow. Hillsborough Circuit Judge Chet Tharpe called 53-year-old Joseph Frye an animal and said he doesnt desire that you spend one more day of your life as a free person. The Tampa Bay Times reports Frye was con victed of rape when he was 19 and ordered to serve 40 years in prison. He was release after 19 years. Authorities said he raped the Tampa woman just 27 days later. CORRECTION The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

RUSSOAssociated PressNEW YORK — The seven Big East schools that don’t play FBS football spoke with the conference commissioner Thursday about possibly breaking from a league that has been drastically reshaped. Such a breakup would be com-plicated and could conceiv-ably kill the Big East. Commissioner Mike Aresco conferred by phone with the leaders of those seven schools, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke on condition of anonym-ity to The Associated press because of the sensitivity of the discussions. The current Big East football membership includes only four schools — South Florida, Connecticut and Cincinnati, Temple — that are committed to the league beyond 2013. But there are 11 schools with plans to join the Big East in the next three years, including Boise State and San Diego State for football only in 2013. Because those schools won’t be members until next summer, the nonfoot-ball schools in the Big East could try to vote to dis-solve the conference now. Or they could simply leave the league. The schools that do not play FBS level football are St. John’s, Georgetown, Marquette, DePaul, Seton Hall, Providence and Villanova.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLocal residents and the Lake City Reporter are work-ing together to provide food for the local food bank. The Lake City Reporter Community Fifth Annual Food Drive will conclude this afternoon. Donations should be brought to the Lake City Reporter office, 180 E. Duval St., before 5 p.m. This year’s food col-lection began Dec. 4. Mandy Brown, Reporter circulation director, said there is no specific goal connected to the food col-lection drive but noted she would like to collect more food than in 2011. “I’d like to raise more than we did last year. Our goal is to beat that,” she said. The Reporter is accepting donations of nonperish-able food items for the food drive. “The food that we collect goes to the Florida Gateway Food Bank,” Brown said. “From there, it goes to a distribution center and it will be given to local resi-dents.” Brown said the Reporter’s independent newspaper car-riers play an important role in the annual food collection drive. She said the carriers pick up donations that are left by newspaper subscrib-ers and bring the food to the office. “We also do a contest with the carriers to see who brings in the most food,” Brown said. “We’re just trying to get in as much food as we can get in, but the amount is down from the last few years.” People who want to make cash contributions to the food collection drive can make checks payable to: The Florida Gateway Food Bank. All contributions will be given to local food bank officials. LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14-15, 2012 3A3A HOLIDAY CRAFT BAZAAR Lake City Mall Friday Saturday December 14th & 15th 10:00 am 5:00 pm Sunday December 16th 11:00 am 5:00 pm 8PPE8PSLt#BLFE(PPETt $BOEMFTt5PZTt+FXFMSZt )PNF%FDPSt$IJMESFOT4FDUJPOt "OE.PSF STILL ACCEPTING VENDOR APPLICATIONS www.lakecitybazaar.com RMS: Former principal falsified documents, according to investigative report Continued From Page 1APolice to patrol aggressively for drunk driversBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Police Department plans to get aggressive in patrolling local roads for drunken drivers during the holiday period. The department is participating in the “Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over” national drunk driving awareness campaign along with area law enforcement agencies. The campaign concludes Jan. 1. Lake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore, who spoke about the checkpoints during a “Celebrate Safely” news conference on Wednesday, said in 2011 property dam-age from traffic crashes in Lake City was $2,801,851. Thus far in 2012, the depart-ment has reported $1,861,658 in property damages due to crashes. “Over the course of this year, 2012, Lake City Police Department continues to run an aggressive traffic enforcement detail — even through the holidays,” Gilmore said. “We have reduced our traffic injuries by 22 percent thus far in 2012 due to these efforts.” Craig Strickland, police department assistant public information officer, said LCPD officers will have a strong presence in the area due to the yearly holiday detail, where officers patrol during the holiday shopping season, both in the downtown business district and the Lake City Mall area. Strickland also addressed the importance of the LCPD participating in the drunk driving awareness campaign. “As the holidays approach, it’s one of the efforts of the police department to ensure the citizens of Lake City enjoy all the festivities with all of their relatives and loved ones,” he said. “We hope to provide safer roadways and a safe holiday season by this DUI crackdown of the Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over campaign,” he said. The department will conduct several DUI/safety checkpoints throughout the city between 8 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. Saturday. The checkpoints may take place at one or more of the following locations: • Northwest Washington Street at Northwest Hilton Avenue; • South Marion Avenue at Southwest St. Margarets Street; • Southwest Bascom Norris Drive at Southwest Marvin Burnett Road; and • In the the 1400 block of U.S. 90 West. The findings of the school district, released to the Lake City Reporter on Wednesday, were sent to the Florida Department of Education’s office of professional prac-tice. Columbia County Schools Superintendent Terry Huddleston said he believed the investigation is ongoing at FDOE. Frank Moore, director of human resources, said the review of comp time records was done at all high schools and mid-dle schools. He said the district didn’t review all records due to the volume. “We pulled (a sample of the files) and looked through them for anything glaring,” he said. Only Richardson turned up irregularities, according to the report. “I’m not perfect. I make mistakes. I must be the only principal that does not make mistakes,” Whitfield said in an inter-view with Moore and Assistant Superintendents Narrangansett Smith and Lex Carswell that is docu-mented in the investigative report. Whitfield seems to contradict herself in the state-ment, but it is unclear if that is exactly what she said during the interview. The interview wasn’t recorded, according to Moore, who said handwrit-ten notes were relied on in the transcription process. Whitfield could not be contacted to provide com-ment for this story. Millikin said he received the memo dated Sept. 25 some time in early October, and because he knew there was a public records request for the informa-tion, he sent the file to the school board attorney to see if any part of it did not qualify as a public record. The file was not returned to the superintendent’s office by Nov. 20, when Millikin was replaced by Huddleston. Malinda Medlock, a former teacher at Richardson, sparked the investigation in May when she told Moore that she didn’t believe she had sufficient leave to take the rest of the school year off, which Whitfield advised her to do when she wasn’t reappointed as a teacher at Richardson. Smith was also contacted by an employee at Richardson asking about teachers being absent from the school on an “unknown type of leave” for extended periods, according to the report. Medlock asked Moore for written confirmation that she did indeed have the leave required to take off the remaining 18 days of school. On May 11, Whitfield told Medlock that she would not be reappointed at Richardson. Whitfield told Medlock that she had 19 days of paid leave and that she should take the days rather than lose them. Medlock said she asked how that was possible because she thought she had at most five days sick leave and two days’ comp time. Whitfield told Medlock that she “found/gave” Medlock additional time for cafeteria duty and gave more time for setting up the table for Family Fun Night, according to an email to Moore from Medlock that was included in the report. Medlock applied for five hours of comp time for her work at Family Fun Night, which she said was the additional time she worked. The investigation found that Medlock’s original form was altered to show her receiving 14 hours of comp time for her work at Family Fun Night, and a single block of 90 hours for lunch room duty for a total of 104 hours of comp time. All these documents were submitted or altered on May 11, the day Medlock was told she wouldn’t be reappointed. The report said it would be impossible for Medlock to accumulate 90 hours of comp time from lunch room duty. The report said there may have been a pattern of Whitfield altering or falsifying documents for non-reappointed teachers’ comp time and encourag-ing them to take leave. “Ms. Whitfield coerced the non-reappointed employee to take unearned leave and created or used falsified comp time records to enable the employee to recieve the unearned leave time while compensated by the district,” the report said. The report identified two additional teachers and a non-instructional staff member who weren’t reap-pionted and were told they had enough comp time to take leave for the remain-der of the year. The investigation also found that Whitfield approved or directed approval of large blocks of comp time for RMS employees without sup-porting documentation on multiple occasions. Jonathan Jordan, then an assistant principal at Richardson, approved comp time without sup-porting documentation at the direction of Whitfield. Jordan signed the majority of paperwork that flowed thorugh the school. Whitfield justified irregu-larities in the comp time records on the grounds that she was not the administra-tor who actually signed the comp time form, the report said. When school officials interviewed Whitfield she said she didn’t recognize the handwritting on some of the forms and that only two people could approve comp time. “I did not approve (Medlock’s comp time form),” she said in the interview. “I hate to say it, but if I did not, Mr. Jordan must have.” Jordan told school officials he signed “about 90 percent of (the comp time forms) because Mrs. Whitfield asked me too.” Jordan, who has since been transfered to assis-tant principal at Columbia High School, declined to comment as he said he believed the investigation was ongoing. The report investigated his time while an administrative trainee at Richardson Middle School. Millikin sent a memo to all department heads and principals about school pol-icy regarding comp time after Whitfield awarded five hours’ comp time for RMS teachers who attended the district teacher of the year ceremony in February. The memo points out that comp time must be approved before a teacher could earn leave, and the supervisor must authorize use of comp time just as any other leave. All activities contained in the report happened after the memo, according to the report. Huddleston said he has taken steps to make sure that administrators will bet-ter understand the district’s policies. All future principals’ meetings, which occur on the second Tuesday of the month, will start 30 minutes earlier. The additional time will be used to emphasize school policy, he said.

(N) ASSOCIATED PRESSBuffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller runs against the St. Louis Rams during the first half of the game in Orchard Park, N.Y., on Sunday.Jackson’s injury leads to Spiller TimeBy JOHN WAWROWAssociated PressORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The only thing C.J. Spiller was running out of in Buffalo was the patience needed to answer the near-weekly round of questions of why he wasn’t more involved in the Bills’ offense. “Pretty much, because, I don’t know what else you all want me to say,” Spiller said. “I can only carry the ball when my number’s called.” Spiller should get accustomed to hearing his No. 28 called far more often over the final three games. That’s because “Spiller Time” has finally arrived after co-starting running back Fred Jackson was placed on the season-end-ing injured reserve Tuesday because of a sprained right knee. Spiller doesn’t enjoy the circumstances behind why he’ll be getting more play-ing time. And yet, he’s up to the challenge as Buffalo (5-8) prepares to “host” the Seattle Seahawks (8-5) at Toronto on Sunday. “I’m not necessarily eager. I’m just eager to try to see what I can do to try to help us win,” Spiller said. “It’s time for every playmaker on this team to rise up a little bit, including myself. So I definitely have to take it to another notch.” Another notch might take his game to an unprec-edented level. With 944 yards on 144 carries, Spiller is averaging 6.55 yards per run. That’s the NFL’s highest total through 13 games since 1963, when Hall of Famer Jim Brown averaged 6.61 yards per carry with the Cleveland Browns. Spiller insists he has nothing to prove to any-one whether he’s getting 20-plus carries or just seven as happened in a 15-12 loss to St. Louis last weekend. “My teammates know what I can do. My coach-es know what I can do. I know what I can do as an individual. The only thing you have to prove is wins,” Spiller said. “I’m not in the business to try to please ‘Joe Blow’ down the street because he wants me to carry the ball 30 times. That’s not what we’re all about.” Spiller has been the Bills’ most dynamic threat this season. And he’s finally playing up to the expecta-tions the team saw in draft-ing him with the ninth pick in 2010. He leads the team with five touchdowns rushing and is on the verge of his first 1,000-yard season. Also a threat in the pass-ing attack, Spiller has 34 catches for 354 yards and a score. Spiller’s production, however, has been over-shadowed by lingering questions and criticisms of coach Chan Gailey, and why the running back isn’t on the field more often for an offense that could cer-tainly use a spark. Spiller has had 15 or more carries only twice this season, with a career-best 22 for 91 yards in a 19-14 win over Miami on Nov. 15. There have been far more times when Spiller’s seem-ingly been overlooked, such as last week when he had only three carries in the second half. Gailey explained Spiller’s time was limited because of how the running back rota-tion was split with Jackson, who had nine carries. And he defended the need for having a rotation as an opportunity to keep both of his running backs fresh. “They’re both great players, and neither one of them are going to get it as much as they want,” Gailey said. “You could look at it and say there’s a couple of plays I wish (Spiller) was in there on. And there were a couple of plays I wish Fred was in there on to be perfectly honest.” That rotation out the window with Jackson hurt. Gailey said Spiller will get a majority of playing time, with third-stringer Tashard Choice serving as the backup. “We came into the season saying, ‘We’ve got two great backs, let’s use them both, that way we may not wear one down,”’ Gailey said. “I’d do it again if I had to do it over.” Spiller isn’t going to argue.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OPINION Friday & Saturday, December 14-15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINIONI saw the big one coming, and turned my board shore-ward. In a couple of quick strokes, I felt the bottom drop out as the wave threw me for-ward and down the steep face. Dropping to the bot-tom, I leaned into a hard turn and sped across the wall of water. Turning up and down the face, speed picked up as it began to break over me, and shove me through the form-ing tunnel. A great wave, it left me with a great memory. I remember riding a bike rally with my two young sons, through the big redwoods, up and down little rises, in the 7-mile loop through beautiful Yosemite Valley. Mile-high vertical granite cliffs enclosed the valley, and we had good views of the Merced River as it wound through the valley, over granite boulders in the spring melt. It was a perfect day. Once in my life I was adventurous and search-ing for what my life was about. I hired on to crew a 115-foot sailing ship, the Pilgrim. This boat took tourists to beautiful Catalina Island on week-ends. On my first trip, I met a wonderful lady. We were instant friends, and ended up as soul mates soon after. The girl of my dreams and I just celebrat-ed our 21st anniversary. My friend, a pilot instructor, needed flight hours. He invited me to fly with him in a little twin-engine Cessna. We flew over the Pacific Ocean, and weaved around bends in the thousand-foot cliffs of the Palos Verdes penin-sula. He taught me how to use the controls, and even land the plane (while he held onto the other wheel, just in case.) I keep all these wonderful memories alive. There always there, ready to grab if you just want to reach out for them. Favorite memories can bring me moments of satisfaction and happiness. I’m sure you have had troubles and bad times in your life, as have I. But I’m also sure you’ve had some good times; some peak happiness experienc-es that you can remember. Too often, we get caught up in our day-to-day problems and situa-tions, and need to focus on the duties of life. We may shove aside those good memories, and miss out on those good feelings we can get from reminisc-ing. True, the memories are still there, but the less we visit them the more time and neglect they have to just fade away. Don’t let your best times get lost. How do we do it? Psychologists have a term for using these memories: a “mind vacation.” You can take a mind vacation any time you have a minute during your day. Bring up the memory. Daydream. If you see somebody star-ing off into space, with a nostalgic smile on his or her face, they’re probably daydreaming. Try it. It may help to close your eyes, but it’s not neces-sary. Think about the good time you want to remember. Think about each aspect: The location, weather, who you were with, little details like the sun on your face or the wind on your cheek. Remember what you were doing, and try to imagine doing it. Make it feel real. Feel better? You can do this any time you want a quick pickup. Use it when you feel pressured or stressed, or feeling frustration, anger, sadness, resentment, or any nega-tive feelings. Psychology research tells us that your mind hardly differentiates between actual experience and your imagination. Biofeedback like blood pressure, pulse rate, and other physiological reac-tions are the same for an actual pleasurable experi-ence and one imagined. Couldn’t we all use a little fun or happiness dur-ing the day? It’s a free psy-chological tool. Use it and enjoy it. (Try this at home. I wouldn’t recommend a mind vacation while driving!)

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com B y recent Tallahassee standards, the three-page memo Florida Senate President Don Gaetz issued earlier this month on whether to renew a contract for a powerful new budget analysis tool was refreshingly forthright and open. Point by point, he explained to his fellow senators the background of the initiative, its results and his criteria for determining what the Senate should do next, be it renewing the contract or going with another alternative. If only all government was this transpar-ent. The irony remains that the best hope in years for shining a light on the state’s secretive budgeting process began in the dark. The so-called Transparency 2.0 project that is set to expire Dec. 31 began as a no-bid $5.5 million project, quietly hatched by then-Senate President Mike Haridopolos. The result, nonetheless, is impressive: Spider Data Systems’ propri-etary software allows a user to instantly connect the dots across government data-bases to see how the state’s dollars are spent, who requested the money and who ultimately benefits. Those are connections only the most seasoned Tallahassee insid-ers are capable of accessing now, which leaves power concentrated in the hands of far too few. Gaetz’s memo illuminated details that rightly deserve consideration before plow-ing ahead — from an annual $1 million licensing fee that still doesn’t guarantee public access to the company’s unwilling-ness to disclose its full ownership. Most important, however, is that Gaetz went on record committing to his 39 fellow sena-tors that he will find a solution regardless to ensure senators and the public have access to a robust budget analysis tool. Breath of fresh air ANOTHER VIEW Remember those happy times? On this date:In 1799, the first president of the United States, George Washington, died at his Mount Vernon, Va., home at age 67. In 1819, Alabama joined the Union as the 22nd state.In 1861, Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, died at Windsor Castle at age 42. In 1911, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen and his team became the first men to reach the South Pole, beating out a British expedition led by Robert F. Scott. HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY To the Editor:I read with interest the excellent editorial com-ments by Mr. Rick Paul regarding “Convention Center Questions” in the Reporter of Oct. 18 and more recently, his com-ments on “Round Two” in the Reporter on Dec. 9. I also question whether the convention center would be adequately occupied on a yearly basis. Additionally, Mr. Ed Harris’ comments in the Reporter of Nov. 29 should be taken to heart. I worked 31 years for the federal government and 10 years for a private engineering company. In both jobs, we would usu-ally have a yearly meet-ing with different state [or] regional offices or engineering groups. Each yearly meeting was held in a different city through-out the country. Even if Lake City had six major companies with subsid-iaries in different states, I doubt that they would hold a convention more than once a year in Lake City. Who else then would occupy the “Center” for the remaining 46 weeks in the year? The “Center” would have to be staffed and maintained, at some level, on a yearly basis. Many of the newer, larger hotels/motels usually have convention rooms, which makes it conve-nient to stay and attend meetings in one location. Also, we have the Florida Gateway College that can offer a conference cen-ter/auditorium for meet-ings, and the LifeStyle Enrichment Center, which also has kitchen facili-ties for caterers — how-ever, both facilities would require traveling a rela-tively long distance from a hotel/motel on West U.S. 90 to attend meetings at these locations, or espe-cially travel 14 to 15 miles to Ellisville. Lastly, and more important to our local residents and taxpayers, why are we even considering another expensive “project” when we still do not have: 1. High-speed Internet broadband that was promised over a year ago, and thousands of dollars wasted; and 2. We have yet to see the construction of the Bascom Norris connec-tor/overpass that would run from The New Millennium Company over the CSX tracks to Lowes/Walmart? Don Willen, Lake CityNorth Korean missile launch strikes fear Robert DennyBob.Denny8@gmail.com Q Bob Denny teaches psychology at Florida Gateway College. Please address comments to Bob.Denny8@gmail.com. More questions about convention center T he world has just become more danger-ous. For decades, the United States has been wary of the rogue state of North Korea, governed (after a fashion) by pariahs. Their intent to become a nuclear power, while unable to feed their own people, has not lagged. Their highly touted but often buffoonish efforts to launch long-range rockets, which usually fell harmlessly out of the sky, have drawn concern but no serious worry — until now. North Korea was apparently successful in launch-ing a missile Wednesday that operated as intended and seems to have been capable of sending a satel-lite into orbit. That devel-opment indicates its new leader, Kim Jong Un, has no intention of listening to the rest of the world’s pleas to cease and desist. South Korea is not the only country that is alarmed. If ultimately suc-cessful, North Korea’s ballistic missiles poten-tially could reach the West Coast of the United States. Even China, which has not-so-surreptitiously been helping North Korea, has expressed concern. North Korea has nuclear stockpiles, but the West does not know if they are capable of being miniatur-ized and weaponized. Another concern is that if North Korea is success-ful in mastering missile technology, Kim could sell it to Iran and, potentially, other terrorists. North Korea is desperately poor. Obama’s main hope now is to persuade China to join in international efforts to punish North Korea. ANOTHER VIEW Q Scripps Howard News Service Q Tampa Bay Times

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14-15, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been mar-ried for seven years. Since our wedding, he has had increasing health prob-lems. He recently told me that he planned his funeral three months ago, without saying a word to me. I am very concerned that he seems more focused on death than on life. Am I wrong to be upset? He says I am. -WIFE IN BURLINGTON, N.J. DEAR WIFE: I don’t blame you for being con-cerned because husbands and wives should be able to discuss important topics with each other, and this is one of them. When your husband has his next medical appoint-ment, go with him so you can speak with his physi-cian. It’s possible that because of his “increasing health problems” he has become depressed, and if that’s the case, his doctor should be told. It is always helpful for spouses to accompany each other to their medi-cal appointments in case the patient forgets to ask a question or tell the doctor something he or she needs to know. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My 24-year-old son, “Dustin,” moved out five years ago, but he expects me to keep all his childhood and college items in his old bedroom because he says he doesn’t have room for them in his apartment. I’d like to clear out his closet and dresser and use the space for things I want to store. I need more space for me. Dustin is calling me selfish because I want to change “his” room and move my stuff in there. I say I need the space, and if he wants to keep all his stuff, he should rent a stor-age locker. By the way, he sleeps here maybe five nights a year at most. How long are parents obligated to keep their grown children’s keep-sakes? -WANTS MY SPACE DEAR WANTS YOUR SPACE: You are asking an emotionally loaded ques-tion. While, rationally, five years should be long enough, clearing “his” room instead of maintain-ing it as a shrine may feel like abandonment to your adult child. Give Dustin a little more time to adjust -like six months -and then insist that he find a place for his things. That way it will be a little less traumatic. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: During these hard times, may I tell you about my daughter? Every year at Christmas, I let our chil-dren pick one present for around $30 for themselves. They know that we don’t have a lot of money and that “Santa” brings only a few presents. My daughter chose to give her “Christmas money” to a charity so that another family can be blessed. She’s only 9, and she understands there are families who are in more need than us. She truly is an angel for reminding me of that. I went to our local food pantry and told them what my daughter wanted to do for Christmas. The director wrote her a letter of thanks and explained how many families her $30 would be helping. I’m so proud of my girl. Sometimes it takes a child to remind us how all of us should act. -BLESSED IN ILLINOIS DEAR BLESSED: Yes, it’s true. But invariably it takes good parents to instill a spirit of empathy and generosity in their children. So some of the credit belongs to you. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I’m a senior in high school and will be off to college next year. Like my older brother, I will be attending a school 30 minutes from home. A problem he has, and that I’m worried about, is setting boundaries with our father. Dad works near the college and insists on stopping by to visit my brother at least once a week. If my brother refuses to meet with him, Dad guilt-trips him and gets angry. I want to experience independence in college. How can I avoid this problem and set visitation boundaries with my father? -COLLEGE BOUND IN GEORGIA DEAR COLLEGE BOUND: So many people your age who write to me have no father involved in their lives at all, and you appear to have a little too much. I agree that by the time a student reaches college, it is time for more independence than your father seems willing to give your brother. If your mother is in the picture, perhaps she could reason with your dad. However, if that’s not pos-sible, your brother -and you -may have to transfer to other schools to put some distance between you. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My boy-friend and his 4-year-old daughter live with me and my two children. We keep our finances separate. I am self-employed and work mostly from home. I also take care of the household chores. My problem is that he thinks because I work from home I should take care of his daughter dur-ing the day, versus her going to day care. My schedule is very full, and I enjoy being able to work from home without the interruptions of having to play nanny while my children are in school. However, I feel guilty about not helping him out on this. Am I selfish for not helping him, or am I justified in my feelings? -DON’T WANT TO BE THE NANNY DEAR DON’T WANT TO BE THE NANNY: If you need the income from your business, that’s where you should be directing your energy. Your job, coupled with the housework, is enough to handle. Your boyfriend is employed, and he can place the 4-year-old in day care during the hours your children are in school. Depending upon your schedule, including his daughter in whatever activities your children are involved in should not take up too large a chunk of your time. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Charlie and I have been married 14 years. Between 1970 and 1980, he traveled with a big circus. He says those were the best years of his life. We have taken several cruises together and other nice trips, but he never mentions them. It’s always his circus days that he talks about. I have asked him several times not to bring the sub-ject up so much. He will go a day or two before men-tioning the circus again. Is there anything I can say to make him stop? It’s driv-ing me crazy. -BORED UNDER THE BIG TOP DEAR BORED: I’m sure your husband doesn’t mean to belittle the good times you have had togeth-er. But his circus adven-ture ended 30 years ago. What I suspect Charlie is reminiscing about is less the circus than it is his youth. Try this the next time he mentions the subject: Remind him that you have already heard the story. ** ** ** Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, December 14-15, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V Grace to help in time of need They will know that I am the LordT his season of the year presents some of the most trying times for the Christian. There is so much out there to take our minds off the things of God. There are all those Christmas parties that we think we have to go to, even though we know things will be going on, not approved for Christians. Yet we go anyway. Hebrews 4:12-16 are some encouraging words for those who have fallen short. Verse 16 says “Let us therefore come boldly before the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” This passage is almost always interpreted to say that the grace that we find is a grace that enables us always to avoid sin. However, even a cursory glance at the context will reveal that the writer is giving encour-agement to sinning believers, by virtue of the presence at the heavenly throne of our Savior, who serves as our High Priest; ever serving as our “Attorney,” forever testifying that our sin debt is paid. It is not strength of character or moral uprightness that we come to the throne of grace to receive. We come to the throne of grace because we have no strength of character of our own, and moral uprightness cannot be achieved by our own efforts at reformation. Should a Christian sin? As Paul says so eloquently, “God forbid!” The Bible is not bad news to the believer, but to the unbeliever only. For the believer, the Bible is a steady flood of bet-ter news than any man would have conceived of on his own. Man’s reasoning would lead to a doctrine of man becoming ever better and more moral. But the Bible teaches that we cannot improve ourselves, but that God works in us those things that He ordained for us before time began. It is to the throne of grace that we come to find our Savior, not the throne of our own good-ness. At the throne of grace we receive that for which we could not work at all. Grace to help in time of need is not necessarily strength to overcome every sin in our lives. Rather, grace to help in a time of need is that sort of grace that comes at those times in our lives when we find ourselves particularly in need of mercy, and not worthy of praise. It is not because we have resisted sin that we have this grace to help. It is because we have not resisted it. It is grace that has already been given, and grace that is given in the moment, that turns our hearts to God. We do not resist sin by grace, except tan-gentially, but by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, whom we have by grace. The only thing in all of God’s creation which can help any Christian in his need of grace is grace itself. In the sense that everything undeserved is, by definition, unmerited, everything that we receive of God is grace, from salvation to providence to the eventual redemption of our body. But this context speaks of forgiveness, not strength to avoid that for which we need grace. We come to the throne of grace. E zekiel was a prophet after Nebuchadnezzar had begun to capture the nation of Israel. It is believed that he might have been in the first wave of Israelites to go into captivity. In the introductory verses of the book that bears his name, it says that he received a vision “in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin’s exile,” which would have been early in the captivity period. A portion of this vision is recorded in chapters six and seven of Ezekiel. Several times in these two chapters, Ezekiel reports that God said, “You will know that I am the Lord” (6:7, 10, 13, 14; 7:4, 9, 27). God through Ezekiel has told the people in advance what He is going to do to them as a people as well as their land, and that the reason is so they “will know that [He is] the Lord.” The ability on God’s part to forecast the future and it come true 100% of the time is one of the proofs that He is the true Lord. His ability to foretell in detail what is going to happen demon-strates that He is the Lord and there is no other god like Him. Ezekiel relates God saying that He was going to “bring a sword” upon “the mountains, the hills, the ravines, and the valleys” as well as “destroy your high places” (6:3). These “high places” were where the Israelites were worshipping “idols” (6:4). Ezekiel goes on to say that God will “lay the dead bodies of the sons of Israel in front of their idols; and I shall scatter your bones around your altars” (6:5). However, God was not going to kill all of the people, but rather He would leave “a remnant, for you will have those who escaped the sword among the nations when you are scattered among the countries” (6:8). In chapter seven, Ezekiel relays “the words of the Lord” as God speaks about “the end [sic] coming on the four corners of the land” (7:2). The reason “the end” was coming is because God was going to “pour out [His] wrath on [Israel], and spend [His] anger against [Israel], judge [Israel] according to [their] ways” (7:8). God was even going to let “His ornaments” which were in the temple go “into the hands of the foreigners as plunder and to the wicked of the earth as spoil” (7:21). Through Ezekiel, God tells the people that “according to their conduct I shall deal with them, and by their judgments I shall judge them” (7:27). As time progresses and the events foretold by God through Ezekiel developed, the Israelites began to realize that God really was “the Lord.” When these eye witnesses of this “disaster” told their grandchildren, the grandparents could say “I know that God is the Lord.” As we can read from historical accounts of the things which Babylon did to Israel, we can know that God is “the Lord.” These are the type of stories that will build faith in God (Romans 10:17). From these type of stories we can have the confi-dence in God that when He says He is going to inflict a disaster on a group of people, He has not said it “in vain” (6:10). These sto-ries are the ones that really show we can trust the promises of the Lord; promises that are for both good and bad events. How can we know that God is the Lord? The answer: by looking at the fulfillment of the different prophesies God made. There is proof that God is the Lord. We can know!

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14-15, 20126B SPORTS Tebow will be active for Jets, but no wildcatBy DENNIS WASZAK Jr.Associated PressFLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Tim Tebow’s days of running the New York Jets’ wildcat-style offense appear over for now. The backup quarterback will be active Monday night for the team’s game at Tennessee, but will like-ly not run the wildcat or participate as the punt pro-tector on special teams. Tebow has not played in the Jets’ last three games while dealing with two bro-ken ribs, sustained Nov. 11 at Seattle. “I think he’s improving,” coach Rex Ryan said Thursday. “Improving to where you’re going to run the powers and the counters and all that other stuff? I’m not sure about that.” Tebow was expected to be limited at practice, as he has been in recent weeks. Ryan said tight end Dustin Keller (ankle), running back Bilal Powell (shoul-der, broken toe), defensive back Aaron Berry (ham-string) and wide receivers Clyde Gates (concussion) and Stephen Hill (knee) are all not expected to prac-tice. Despite Powell’s toe injury, Ryan thinks he’ll be OK to play Monday night. Newly re-acquired wide receiver Braylon Edwards was expected to be limited with a hamstring issue, but passed his physical with the Jets and Ryan expects him to play against the Titans. Tebow has been medically cleared to play the last few weeks, but Ryan has chosen to keep him on the sideline rather than risk further injury. Tebow played three offensive snaps against St. Louis on Nov. 18, but the soreness in his ribs intensified after the game. X-rays revealed the fractures, but Tebow convinced Ryan he could play Thanksgiving night — after being cleared by team doctors — but never saw the field. He was inactive against Arizona two weeks ago, with Greg McElroy serv-ing as the backup to Mark Sanchez — who he replaced in that game and led New York to a come-back victory. Ryan said it’s possible third-stringer McElroy could also be active at Tennessee, but Tebow is still the No. 2 quarterback. “I feel better about Tim in that role,” Ryan said. “I feel he gives us the best opportunity.” Ryan said Tebow has not experienced any set-backs with his injury, and there isn’t any cartilage damage or further compli-cations. “I’m more comfortable with him playing now, obviously, than I was a few weeks ago,” Ryan said. “I feel better about him playing with the way he’s worked out on the practice field, we’ve increased his reps, and the day before the (Jaguars) game, he was throwing it pretty good.” Tebow was expected to be a major part of the offense after being acquired from Denver in March, but he has had little more than a minor role in New York. Ryan clarified his comments from Monday when, dur-ing a radio interview, he said he would think Tebow is disappointed with his situation with the Jets. “As far as his particular role, the wildcat and all those type of things, we haven’t run it that much and obviously with the two broken ribs or cracked ribs, that’s something that’s got to be disappoint-ing because you’re not going to do that,” Ryan said. “That’s how I feel. As a competitor, you want to win a ton of games, want to win all your games but we’re 6-7, so I think that’s disappointing for all of us. With his role, having the ribs these last few weeks, obviously his role has been diminished some. I don’t think he’s happy about that.” ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 2 file photo, Texas Rangers’ Josh Hamilton w atches his home run with Cleveland Indians catcher Lou Marson during a baseball game in Cleveland. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that Hamilton has ag reed to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels. Josh Hamilton agrees to deal with Angels By STEPHEN HAWKINSAssociated PressFORT WORTH, Texas — Josh Hamilton has agreed to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels, according to Texas Rangers manager Jon Daniels. Texas had hoped to sign the 2010 AL Most Valuable Player, who led the Rangers to consecutive World Series appearances in 2010 and 2011. Speaking Thursday after a Rangers’ holiday luncheon, Daniels said he had just been informed of the decision by Hamilton’s agent, Michael Moye. Daniels said he was disappointed “to some degree.” “But it’s business and everybody’s got to make their own calls,” he said. Hamilton joins a team that spent big last offsea-son to add first baseman Albert Pujols for $240 mil-lion and pitcher C.J. Wilson for $77.5 million. Yet, the Angels disappointed and failed to make the playoffs. The agreement came days after the Los Angeles Dodgers added pitchers Zack Greinke and Ryu Hyun-jin, boosting their payroll over $200 million. Hamilton’s addition to the Angels outfield means Mark Trumbo could be moved to third base or traded. Daniels met with Hamilton last week at the winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn. Daniels said then that Hamilton had told Texas he would contact the Rangers before agree-ing to a deal with another team. “I said all along this wasn’t like restricted free agency in the NFL, with an offer sheet,” Daniels said. “I never expected that he was going to tell us to the dollar what they had, and a chance to offer it. Our full expectation was the phone call was going to be before he signed, and certainly not after.” The 31-year-old was considered a risk by some teams because of his histo-ry of alcohol and substance abuse, which derailed his career before his surge with the Rangers over the past five seasons. “We indicated last week he told us that he felt it might be time to move on, but that we were still talk-ing,” Daniels said. “We had additional conversations this week. We thought they moved along in a positive direction, but apparently not.”Red Sox finalize Victorino’s $39M, 3-year dealBOSTON — Hawaiian Shane Victorino was so excited to arrive in Boston in the chill of December that he ordered some New England clam chowder at dinner and sent out a pic-ture to his Twitter follow-ers. That’s when he got his first lesson. “It’s CHOWDA Shane!” Red Sox centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury corrected him. “That was the first real message from Jacoby for Boston,” Victorino said on Thursday at a news con-ference to announce the $39 million, three-year deal he agreed to at the winter meetings. “I’ve got to learn the lingo.” Victorino joins Ellsbury in the Red Sox outfield, with the opportunity to replace the 2011 AL MVP runner-up when Ellsbury’s contract expires at the end of next season. In the mean-time, Victorino is slotted for right field, where he has not played regularly since 2007. “I always look at it as, ‘I’m going to help this team win,”’ Victorino said. “I came in as a right fielder. ... Don’t get me wrong, I love center field, I want to be a center fielder, but I play right. I’m excited for the opportunity. I might wrap myself around that pole, but if I’ve got to go get the ball I’ve got to go get it.” Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said add-ing a “center field-quality right fielder” was one of his goals for the offseason. It’s also been important to add players who can improve the chemistry of a team that collapsed in September 2011 and never got in posi-tion to collapse in 2012. “He fits perfectly into our shortand long-term plan,” Cherington said. “He’s been an outstanding per-former for a lot of years in a tough place to play. He’s been a big part of great teams. We’re thrilled to add him to our team and to our clubhouse.” Victorino said he followed the problems in Boston from afar, and he thinks the chemistry problems can be solved by winning. “The last two years have definitely been tough for the Red Sox, the organiza-tion. But I look forward to 2013 and being the team we could be,” he said, not-ing that he experienced his own disappointment this fall after making the play-offs five years in a row. “I fell short last year. It wasn’t fun to be home at the begin-ning of October.” Nicknamed the Flyin’ Hawaiian, Victorino is a .275 hitter with 90 hom-ers in seven full seasons. He came up to the major leagues with San Diego but played most of his career with Philadelphia before he was sent to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the July 31 trade deadline. “I always said Fenway was one of my favorites— there and Wrigley, because of the tradition,” he said from an event room in the ballpark, where the scoreboard wel-comed him to Boston. “To call this home for the next three years, I’m ecstatic. “There is no convincing. It’s Boston; that, in itself, says it all. It’s the Red Sox. It’s a historic franchise.” McCarron to return to Tide for senior yearAssocated PressTUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, who has led the Crimson Tide to its second straight national title game, said he will return for his senior season instead of entering the NFL draft. McCarron made the announcement in a state-ment released by the school on Wednesday. “I had many goals for myself when I came to the University of Alabama,” the junior said. “I have been lucky enough to achieve some of those goals, but some are still ahead of me. There were many factors in my decision to return to Alabama for my senior year but, after talking with my family and coaches, I knew it was the right choice for me. “I love the University of Alabama, my coaches, my teammates and our fans. I am excited to have the opportunity to play with my brother (sophomore tight end Corey McCarron), con-tinue to grow as a leader, continue to help our team win football games and develop even further as a quarterback. The NFL has long been a dream, but I think another year at Alabama can only help my chances of being successful at the next level.” McCarron leads the nation in passing efficiency headed into the BCS championship game against Notre Dame on Jan. 7 in Miami, and he was MVP of the BCS cham-pionship game against LSU last season. ASSOCIATED PRESSAlabama quarterback AJ McCarron reacts after throwing a touchdown pass to wide receiver Amari Cooper (not pictu red) during the second half of the Southeastern Conference championship game agianst Georgia on Dec. 1 in Atlanta. Alabama won 32-28.

D ad said, Jack, my time is over. It seemed there was no way I could convince him oth erwise. He had done so much for others, and now his legs were giving him pain, he had a pace-maker, skin cancers that were peri odically being removed. Mom was in the nursing home, and we could not convince him, to move in with us. It seemed like he was just tired. Giving up was never dads way, and I knew this. You still have a lot that you can do, dad. I said to him. He just smiled, and said, Jack, my time is done. Its time for you and others to continue. I sat and spoke with him about the possibility of a website. One where he could put his books, and over time, make them into e-Books. It would be a site where he could have a blog, and carry on discussions with people all over the world, and pos sibly do some counseling with those who needed it. Sounded like a good idea to dad. It was 2010 and we were discussing it a bit more. I didnt want to push, but I just knew his work was not done. Besides, I told him, Dad you are so wise, you have so much to offer to so many people. Lets do something! Dad finally came around to the idea, and we started talking about what to call the site. Dad said, We have to figure what the site will be about its pur pose. There were several ideas and thoughts that we discussed: 1.) Amazing Grace since over the years, dad had done so much study on the sub ject. Yes, he wrote about it earlier in his ministry. Yet, time, prayer, experience and study helped him to grow in grace. We played with this name, but it was being used quite a bit. 2.) jackexum.com, well, he liked that. Unfortunately, dad went into the hospital to have his leg operated on to ease the pain form an artery being clogged. It was during this period that things started going down hill. He has a slight heart attack, and after a time, had another, and after a short recov ery in the nursing home, had another. He passed away February 7, 2010. The dream was gone I thought. Then after a couple of months, I went to a local web builder who had helped in the past with my computer. We talked about the possibilities, the obstacles and it started. After two years of work, www.jackexum.com was born. With hundreds of articles by myself and dad, books for free and for sale, pictures, a special teens area, Bible studies, discus sions and more. The site continues to be improved, and expanded. All dedi cated to the memory of my dad, Jack Exum. Dedicated to keeping his work going, and reaching out to all who want to grow in grace.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14-15, 2012 7B7BNASCAR Atlanta Motor Speedway president Ed Clark, a veteran observer of the NASCAR world and afairly successful Legends and Thunder Roadsterracer with 40 career feature wins to his credit,recently offered his thoughts on the top five sur-prises of the 2012 NASCAR season. 1.Brad Keselowski Wins Sprint Cup Championship While Roger Penske’s professional racing operation has been extremely successful in other formsof racing,it had never won a NASCAR SprintCup Series championship since beginning to com-pete in the mid-70s.Many expected BradKeselowski to once again win races in his thirdyear of competition in NASCAR’s premier series,but most were caught off guard by his consistentgood finishes and his stellar Chase performancethat yielded the team’s first NASCAR Sprint CupSeries championship. 2.Edwards and Stewart Can’t Back Up 2011 Performance After staging perhaps the best championship duel in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history in2011,Carl Edwards failed to make the Chase,and Tony Stewart was a non-factor after win-ning five Chase races in 2011.In non-traditionalform,Stewart won two early season races andadded one more in July,while Edwards wasshut out of victory lane all year. 3.Kenseth and Harvick Switch TeamsAfter long and successful NASCAR Sprint Cup Series careers with the only teams theyhave competed with in the series,Matt Kensethwill move from Roush Fenway Racing to JoeGibbs Racing in 2013,and Kevin Harvick isreported to be leaving Richard Childress Racingto drive for Stewart-Haas Racing beginningwith the 2014 campaign.Kenseth had run onerace as a substitute driver for Bill Elliott in1988 before competing in 466 races for the JackRoush operation.Harvick has driven 430events for RCR and will finish his career therein 2013. 4.Kyle Busch Held to One 2012 WinAfter an extremely successful run of wins, Kyle Busch grabbed only one Sprint Cup Serieswin in 2012 and failed to make the cut to com-pete in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Serieschampionship.He also was shut out in theNationwide and Camping World Trucks Series. 5.Bowyer’s Strong Season with MWRMany questioned Clint Bowyer’s wisdom when he left the well-established RichardChildress Racing operation after the 2011 sea-son to join Michael Waltrip’s young organiza-tion.Even Bowyer admitted his discomfort withthe move,but things worked out well as Bowyertook two wins and finished second in the Chasefor the Sprint Cup championship.All of thisestablished MWR as a championship-caliberteam that should compete for multiple racewins with the sport’s long established teamoperations in the future. NOTEBOOK Late Jim Hunter to be honored Jim Hunter,former NASCAR vice president of corporate communications,former track pres-ident at Darlington and Talladega and one-timesports reporter,will be posthumously inductedinto the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame on Jan.19 in Charlotte,N.C. Pocono Raceway founder and patriarchDr.Joseph Mattiolialso will be inductedposthumously.Thethird inductee is veter-an broadcaster KenSquier. The three were named on more than65 percent of the bal-lots cast by NMPA members to earninduction into the Hall of Fame.Crew chief and team owner RayEvernham and publicist Dick Thompson alsoreceived votes. The National Motorsports Press Association, formed more than 40 years ago,includes amongits members motorsports writers,broadcastersand photographers.Stewart passes on Penske offer After a week of speculation,fueled by acomment from RogerPenske during theSprint Cup awards cer-emony,Tony Stewarttold reporters he’sdeclining Penske’s offerof a ride in theIndianapolis 500. “As much as I would like to do it,we justdon’t have the time todo it proper,”Stewarttold USA Today.“You’renot going to stroll intothe Indy 500 with these guys who race everyweek and be as competitive as they are.It was avery humbling comment and offer that [Penske]made,for sure.”Harvick to drive NTSM truckKevin Harvick is planning to become more involved in the Camping World Truck Series,but not to the extent that he was when he andhis wife Delana fielded trucks through theirKevin Harvick Inc.team. Harvick plans to run at least two races – both at Martinsville Speedway – in a truck fielded byan expanded NTS Motorsports,which was creat-ed by a merger of Joe Denette Motorsports withNTS Motorsports,which is owned by Californiabusinessman Bob Newberry. The team will field the No.9 Chevrolet for Ron Hornaday Jr.,the No 14 for BrennanNewberry,Bob Newberry’s son,and the No.24for Harvick and other as-yet-unnamed drivers. The team will operate out of the old KHI shops in Kernersville,N.C.,with Harvickserving in an advisoryrole. Harvick told reporters from SpeedTV that his involve-ment will be limited. “It’s probably not going to be a weeklything,but I think ahandful of times amonth [visiting the shop] would be fair tosay,”he said.“I think that part will definitely allow me to dabble in it,I guess you could say.It will allow me to be athome and have stuff in the shop and look at it,walk in at night like I used to and look aroundand make sure everything is going the way Ithink it should go.” NUMERICALLYSPEAKING Drivers who ranall 36 points-paying Sprint Cup races in2012 Drivers who ranat least one Cup race in 2012 Drivers who ranall 33 Nationwide Series races in 2012 Drivers who ranat least one Nationwide Series racein 201274 26 143 13 Ed Clark, president of Atlanta Motor Speedway.(AMS photo) Jim Hunter in 2007. (NASCAR photo) By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick Hall of FameinducteeWood recallshistoric winWhen legendary mechanic LeonardWood is inducted into the NASCARHall of Fame next February it’ll be mostly on the strength of his work with hisfamily’s No.21 Fords and Mercuries over thepast 62 years. But one of Wood’s greatest career accomplishments came in one of his rare venturesinto the world of open-wheel racing. In the 1965 Indianapolis 500,Wood and his brothers stunned the racing world withtheir pit work that paved the way for a victo-ry by the great Jim Clark in his Lotus-Ford. The Woods,already known at that time for their innovative work on the pit roads of theNASCAR circuit,serviced Clark’s car in anastonishing 41.9 seconds – for the entire race. Although many at the track that day initially were slow to realize what the Woodshad pulled off,it soon became obvious.In theweeks afterward,Leonard Wood and hisbrothers,including Glen,who is already inthe NASCAR Hall of Fame,drew worldwideacclaim for their stunningly quick pit work. “We got the most publicity in the least amount of time that we ever got in our lives,”Leonard Wood said.“We hit a home run forsure.” The story of the Wood Brothers’ participation in the Indianapolis 500 actually startedat a NASCAR race in Darlington,S.C.,whenFord Motor Company racing official JohnCowley approached Glen Wood,asking him ifhe’d help out with the Lotus-Ford effort inthe 500. Wood was taken aback by a request from Ford Motor Company to have the team fromthe remote Virginia foothills,with no open-wheel racing experience,be a part of theIndianapolis 500. Glen Wood said his initial response was: “Are you kidding?” The Ford folks weren’t kidding,and being as loyal to the Blue Oval as they were,Glenand Leonard were off to Indy. The first challenge was building a relationship with a group of racers they’d nevermet. “We rolled up to that shop and didn’t know if those people were going to accept us ornot,being a foreign crew and all,”Leonard Wood said.“But they really welcomed us andseemed happy we were there and wanted tohelp us any way they could.” The Woods then set to work on the fueling system they’d use on race day.Engineersfrom Ford and the race team had developeda fuel tank that had a giant venturi inside.The principle was simple,and time-proven.It’s the same device that allows fuel and airto flow quickly through a carburetor andmakes airplanes fly. The Woods knew it would work.Others were caught unaware,including one of thefirst inspectors to check out the team’s pitequipment. “The inspector said,‘I’ll bet you a thousand dollars you can’t flow 20 gallons aminute through that thing,”Leonard Woodsaid. He declined the sure money,in the interest of keeping his secrets safe until race day. “All we were interested in was getting that thing through inspection and getting on withthe program,”Wood said. To speed things up even more,Wood spent hours filing and fitting the connections of thefueling system,so hookups would be smoothand fast and there would be nothing imped-ing the rapid flow of fuel.He even climbedinside the fuel tank to do more grinding andpolishing. Glen and Leonard Wood also decided to bring in the rest of their NASCAR-proven pitcrew – brothers Ray Lee and Delano alongwith Kenny Martin,Ralph Edwards and JimReed. When it came time to practice pit stops, the Woods had Clark make a mock stop.Butto keep their ingenuity under wraps,theywaited a few seconds after Clark came to astop before turning on the fuel. The results showed just how wrong that inspector had been just days before. “We turned that thing on,and it put in 58 gallons in 15 seconds,”Leonard Wood said.“It just sucked the fuel out of there.We knewthen we were going to be under 20 secondson the pit stops.” For the pit stops to work as planned,Clark had to stop in a precise spot.The two heavyfuel hoses needed to be in just the right position for maximum fuel flow and timelyhookups. With a talented driver like Clark,that turned out to be no problem. The Woods also prepared for tire changes during the race,sanding and filing on thewheels and hubs and practicing tire swaps. But that tire work turned out to be unnecessary.Clark ran the entire 500 on the sameset of tires,giving the Woods the distinctionof winning both the Daytona 500 (in 1963with Tiny Lund driving) and theIndianapolis 500 without ever changingtires. Still,the pressure was on the Wood crew to perform on the biggest stage they’d everseen – 350,000 to 400,000 people watching inperson and millions more following theaction on radio and TV. On the first stop,the Woods had Clark going again in just 17 seconds.At that time apit stop was expected to take a full minute ormore.While the rest of the team concentrat-ed on fueling,with Glen and others cradlingthe hoses so they wouldn’t sag and slow theflow,brother Ray Lee Wood used a depthgauge to measure the tire wear.The secondstop,at 24.9 seconds,was a little slower,largely because there was less fuel in thestorage tank and therefore less gravity pres-sure. The stops caught both competitors and commentators alike off guard.The expertcommentators speculated to their audiencesthat the Indy-inexperienced Woods hadfailed to fill the tank. There even were some doubts within the team,but Clark made it to the checkeredflag with no issues. For Leonard Wood,that triumph at Indianapolis was as sweet as they come. “It was right on top of the list,”he said.“It was very special to go up there.It was thefirst rear-engine car to win the race,and thefirst car to average 150 miles per hour inwinning the race,and it was really specialfor Ford Motor Company.It was theirengine.” Wood will be inducted Feb.8 along with Buck Baker,Cotton Owens,Herb Thomasand Rusty Wallace.
