By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comD ennis Roberts has cleaned off the shelves and packed away all of his per-sonal belongings. All that’s needed before his successor takes office is a fresh coat of paint, and Roberts will walk out of the Columbia County Courthouse for the last time as public defender for the Third Judicial Circuit. The painters need to be quick. Robert’s last day on the job is Monday. Roberts was elected public defender in 1989 and has served six full terms. He graduated from the University of Florida in 1973. He went to UF on the G.I. Bill after serving in the Marine Corps and being stationed on Okinawa during the Vietnam War. In 1974, he started his career in the criminal justice system as a parole officer. He graduated to investigator with the public defenders office back when Milo Thomas was the public defender. While an investigator, Roberts earned a master’s degree in crimi-nal justice on weekends at Rollins College. As an investigator, Roberts said, he watched the public defenders and decided to try his hand at law school. He also ran for the Lake City City Council and won in 1980. In his first weeks in law school, his wife gave birth a daughter. In 1983, Roberts graduated from UF’s School of Law, and continued to work in the public defender’s office in Lake City as an assistant public defender. In 1988, Thomas, the public defender before Roberts, died of a heart attack in his sleep. Roberts campaigned and won the open seat later that year. Since 1989, Roberts has run unopposed for Third Circuit public defender. Roberts said he’s the only public defender in the state to have started as an investigator with a public defenders office, worked his way to assistant public defender, and then to become the elected public defender. “I feel like I worked my way up, so to speak,” Roberts said. With his retirement around the corner, Roberts is a little uneasy about what he’s going to do with his free time. He said he doesn’t know what will fill his day come Jan. 1. “I’m pretty scared about it, because I don’t know what I’m going to do yet. I don’t have any plans to practice law ... I believe the time had come for me to turn this office over to someone else, and I didn’t want to stay here forever. I thought 24 years was a good run, and it was a good run,” Roberts said. He said he had struggled with quittting four years ago, but his staff talked him into staying. The 62-year-old said he believes it’s a good time to leave, but he doesn’t By TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressTAMPA — Gov. Rick Scott warned Thursday that a looming strike involving port dockwork-ers on the East and Gulf coasts could have a devastating effect on Florida’s families and its economy. “The livelihood of thousands of Florida families lies in the balance,” Scott said during a news confer-ence call with several of the state’s port executives. “Florida’s largest ports could be shut down. This is an issue of not just Florida impor-tance but of national importance.” Talks between the International Longshoremen’s Association and the shipping companies broke down Dec. 18. Issues including wages are unresolved, but the key sticking point is container royal-ties, which are payments to union workers based on cargo weight. Federal mediators seeking to avoid a walkout of thousands of East Coast and Gulf Coast dockworkers from Massachusetts to Texas have called for a meeting between the two groups in hopes of resolving the issue before the Dec. 29 expira-tion of the dockworkers’ contract extension. Port officials and union leaders say that if a strike were to happen, only containerized cargo would be affected — not perishable goods or cruise ships. However, port leaders and politicians have dire predic-tions if such a strike were to occur.

The defense rests JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterDennis Roberts, who has served 24 years as Third Judic ial Circuit public defender, will be retiring on Monday ‘I am somewhat apprehensive about leaving, but this time comes for everyone, and I believe the time has come for me,’ he said. ‘I do plan on remaining active in community events For right now, I’m going to decompress and see where li fe takes me.’ Public Defender retiring after 24 years Dennis Roberts says he will remain active in the community. Only in Florida:Odditiesof 2012 Lifeguard fired for saving a life, woman rides a manatee.By BRENDAN FARRINGTONAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — In 2012, Florida was a state where a lifeguard got fired for saving a life, a woman got arrested for riding a manatee and a man repeatedly used 911 as a phone sex service. Think that’s weird? It gets worse and more tragic. In one of the state’s most horrifying stories of the year, a man stripped a homeless man naked and attacked him in Miami, chewing off most of his face before police fatally shot the attacker. And it wasn’t the only story of its kind. In Manatee County, deputies used multiple Tasers to subdue a naked man who bit off part of another man’s arm. Later in the year a man won a roach-eating contest outside a Deerfield Beach pet store and then dropped dead in front of the store when body parts of the doz-ens of roaches he swallowed blocked his airway. “We tend to be a magnet from every direction for all kinds of sketch-ery,” said Billy Corben, a ASSOCIATED PRESSFired Hallandale lifeguard Lopez.

Bass had also suffered a series of strokes over the past seven years. She was an outgoing person, Mitchell said of her mother. She had a very big personality. Any room she entered she just lit the room up, whether she was on stage or just going out to eat. Bass began performing at a young age, singing in her churchs choir at age 6. She was surrounded by music, often traveling on national tours with her mother and her gos pel group. Her interest turned from gospel to R&B when she was a teenager and she began her professional career at the Showboat Club in north St. Louis She co-wrote Rescue Me, which in 1965 reached No. 1 on the R&B charts and No. 4 on the Billboard pop singles chart. Basss powerful voice bore a strik ing resemblance to that of Aretha Franklin, who is often misidentified as the singer of that chart-topping hit.

I believe I finished in the top five in seven of the eight tour-naments I played in with the lone exception being nationals where I finished seventh.” After competing in the Palmer Cup for the sec-ond time, Barber took his talents to the professional level, but regarded his trip to Ireland as a memory to last a lifetime. “The Palmer Cup was a great experience,” Barber said. “It was a great honor to be selected in an indi-vidual sport to compete as a team. It’s a different style and was fun to play with my buddies.” Barber turned professional in July following the Palmer Cup and played in the Web.com tour where he finished 33rd in his only start. “It was a great experience for me,” Barber said. But more was left to come on the MGA Tour for Barber. He won five of the six tournaments he entered to cap off the year. “I won my first start and kept playing well,” Barber said. “Obviously it was a great year.” Barber plans to start 2013 the same way he ended 2012. “I’m going to focus on the MGA tour to begin the year and try to qualify on Monday for some PGA and Web.com events,” Barber said. “I’ll see where the year takes me.” But perhaps Barber’s biggest accomplishment dur-ing 2012 was one that came only a week ago. “It was my most important achievement,” Barber said. “I married my wife Morgan and I’m very excit-ed for us to travel together. She’ll be an intricate part of touring. She’s my support system and will be actively involved in everything.” BARBER: Enjoyed success in 2012 Continued From Page 1B COURTESY PHOTOBlayne Barber enjoyed great success from playing at Au burn University to turning professional in 2012. Barkley won’t play in Sun BowlAssociated PressEL PASO, Texas — Matt Barkley’s career at Southern California is over, a shoulder injury bringing a disappointing end to his record-breaking, four-year run as the Trojans’ quar-terback. Coach Lane Kiffin announced Thursday that the senior quarterback won’t play in the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech because of an injured shoul-der. Instead, redshirt fresh-man Max Wittek will make his second career start. Barkley’s throwing shoulder was injured dur-ing USC’s second-to-last game against UCLA and he didn’t play in the season-finale against Notre Dame. Wittek started the game and the Trojans lost to the Fighting Irish to fall to 7-5 on the season. Barkley was a celebrated recruit when he arrived at USC and won the starting job as a freshman in 2009. He went on to rewrite the Pac-12 record book during a USC-record 47 starts over four seasons, becoming the conference leader in touch-down passes, yards pass-ing, completions and total offense. But so much more was expected from him and the Trojans this season, when Barkley announced last January that he would return for his senior year. Coming off a 10-2 season, and out of a two-year stay in NCAA jail for rules violations, USC started this season ranked No. 1 and a consensus national title contender. Barkley was the Heisman Trophy favorite and an almost certain high first-round NFL draft pick. Neither he nor the Trojans could reach those high expectations. Barkley was not bad. He threw for 3,273 yards in 11 games and 36 touchdowns. But he also threw 15 inter-ceptions, the most since his freshman season. The Southern California native will end his career having played in the post-season just once. He led USC to a victory against Boston College in the Emerald Bowl in 2009 as a freshman. Two Gators to transferAssociated PressGAINESVILLE — Florida safety De’Ante Saunders and offensive tackle Matt Patchan are leaving the pro-gram. Coach Will Muschamp announced the pending transfers Thursday after the fourth-ranked Gators landed in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. Muschamp says “I think they needed a fresh start and that’s all I’ve got to say about it.” Saunders, a sophomore from DeLand, played in eight games this season. He had 18 tackles and an interception. Saunders played in 12 games last year, including nine starts, and finished with 26 tackles and two interceptions. Patchan, a fourth-year junior from Tampa, has missed all season with a pectoral injury. He has played in 27 games during an injury-plagued career, including 11 games as a backup defensive tackle on Florida’s 2008 national championship team. Lady Indians play way into championship gameFrom staff reportsFort White High will play for the championship of the Country Christmas Classic today after going 2-0 on the first day of competition. The Lady Indians defeated Lafayette High, 45-44, in the first game and Branford High, 50-33, in the second game to enter the champi-onship as the tournament’s No. 1 seed. Tasha Robinson was the leading scorer for the Lady Indians in both contests. Robinson scored 23 points to lead Fort White to victory over Lafayette and scored 27 points against Branford before leaving the game with an undisclosed injury in the second half. Lafayette played its way back into the championship game by defeating North Florida Christian in its sec-ond game. North Florida Christian and Branford will meet in the consilation bracket at noon before the Lady Indians square off in a rematch against Lafayette at 1:30 p.m. Robinson is expected to play in the championship game. Tigers moving on in Jarvis Williams tourneyFrom staff reportsColumbia High will move onto the semifinals of the Jarvis Williams Tournament in Palatka today after beating Daytona Beach Seabreeze High, 73-33, in the opening game of the tournament. “It’s a game where we outmanned them, but also executed,” Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson said. “We had a little let-down in the third quarter, but for the most part, we were in control.” Columbia jumped out to a 16-2 lead behind five first-quarter points from Dillan Hall, who finished with seven in the game. The Tigers built a 37-11 halftime lead and won by 40 — the largest margin of victory this year. Tre Simmons led the Tigers with 19 points in the game. Morris Marshall fin-ished with 13 points. “He looked like a college player tonight,” Jefferson said. “I attribute that to the kids understanding of spac-ing which allowed us to do some things, but tomorrow is a different day. The Tigers take on Palm Coast at 4:30 p.m. today.

hunt, doesn’t fish and doesn’t play golf. “That seems to be the big three that people ask me and I’m at a loss to say what I am going to do,” he said. He said he plans on staying active in the com-munity. “I’m going to try and be a good citizen,” he said. He’s a member of the chambers of commerce in all seven counties in the Third Circuit. In the past, he was president of the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club. Don Kennedy, administrative director for the Third Judicial Circuit, said most importantly Roberts is a boss that people liked working for. Kennedy worked in the Third Judicial Circuit for 38 years, starting as an investigator. Kennedy said that since Roberts has been public defender, the office has hired about 100 employ-ees. He said that on the exit interviews, not one had a negative word to say about Roberts. “He’s very compassionate, very giving, and goes out of his way to make sure that his employees are number one,” Kennedy said. Gordon Summers, an assistant public defender in the Third Judicial Circuit, echoed some of the comments from Kennedy. Summers said he’s known Roberts for 30 years, but only worked with him for about 12 years. “He’s been just a tremendous guy to work for,” he said. “He’s not a micro-manager. He looks for results, and makes sure clients are taken care of.” Summers said that he can’t remember Roberts ever losing his temper. He said he stays on an even keel, and that nothing riles him much. Kennedy said that he plans to stay in contact with Roberts after he begins retirement. “Until Monday, he’s my boss, and then he’ll continue to be my friend,” Kennedy said.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS YEAR IN REVIEW FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28-29, 2012 3B3BSportsSad sagas the story of 2012By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressJerry Sandusky will spend the rest of his life in prison, Penn State foot-ball played under NCAA sanctions and Joe Paterno passed away. Lance Armstrong abandoned his fight against doping allegations. Roger Clemens won his court bat-tle, despite lingering skepti-cism over whether he used steroids. The impact of early-stage dementia forced Pat Summitt to step down from her coaching perch. Again and again, it seemed, the sports world in 2012 saw the end of long tales with tragic or, at best, bittersweet endings. And in so many cases, off-the-field news overshad-owed what happened on it: Q In State College, Pa., where the Sandusky mess at Penn State destroyed lives and radically changed the face of a proud football program. Q In Washington, where Clemens emerged from court a winner, after a mis-trial the first time around on charges he lied to Congress about performance-enhanc-ing drug use. Q In Kansas City, Mo., where Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend, then drove to the team’s facility in the Arrowhead Stadium complex, thanked his coach and general manager, and turned the gun on himself. Q In Austin, Texas, where the news broke that Armstrong decided to give up his long fight against doping charges, saying “enough is enough” but acknowledging no wrong-doing. The move began the cyclist’s swift fall from his spot as cancer-fighting sports hero in the public eye. And though he main-tains he was victimized by a “witch hunt,” Armstrong still was stripped of all seven of his Tour de France victories. “We must create a culture in which people are not afraid to speak up, manage-ment is not compartmen-talized, all are expected to demonstrate the highest ethical standards, and the operating policy is open, collegial and collabora-tive,” Penn State President Rodney Erickson said the day the NCAA levied mas-sive sanctions against the Nittany Lions including a four year postseason ban. Erickson was speaking of his own school. But in 2012, at least some of those lessons could have applied to any number of topics. Sure, there were amazing moments to remember and savor. Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian in history, adding to his enormous swimming haul with six more medals at the London Games, where the United States topped the winning charts once again. Usain Bolt became the first man to win the 100and 200-meter dashes at consecutive Olympics, Eli Manning and the New York Giants reigned supreme in the NFL, San Francisco stormed its way to the World Series title, the Los Angeles Kings hoisted the Stanley Cup (no tell-ing if any other team will anytime soon) and LeBron James and the Miami Heat silenced doubters by win-ning the NBA title. Yet in a year like this, such times of achievement and triumph seemed few and far between. Take March 21, for example. That was the day when Tim Tebow was traded by Denver to the New York Jets, a huge story simply for the Tebowmania factor — and one that wasn’t even the biggest in the NFL that day, not with the announce-ment that New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton would serve a yearlong sus-pension for his role in the bounty scandal. Try August 15, when baseball got to experience a rarity — Felix Hernandez pitching the first perfect game in Seattle Mariners’ history — and an all-too-common occurrence, that being someone testing posi-tive for something, in this case San Francisco’s Melky Cabrera basically forfeit-ing any shot at the MVP or the NL batting title by being suspended 50 games following a positive test for testosterone. Or Oct. 10, when Raul Ibanez showed off a flair for the dramatic — twice — by hitting tying and winning home runs as the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 to take a 2-1 lead in the AL Division Series, an enormous moment by any measure. Of course, those blasts came on the same day that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a report in which Armstrong was portrayed as the lead of the “most professional-ized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.” As stunning as Armstrong’s fall was, what went on at Penn State con-tinued to dominate the sports lexicon. Sandusky was arrested in November 2011, but reso-lution didn’t really begin until 2012 — part of why the case was voted the top sports story of the year by The Associated Press, based on balloting by U.S. editors and news directors. The longtime Penn State defensive coordinator was convicted of 45 counts of abuse involving 10 boys, and later sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison, which means Sandusky is likely to die behind bars. Paterno succumbed to lung cancer in January, and a statue of his likeness out-side Beaver Stadium was removed six months later, one day before the NCAA announced a $60 million fine and four years of schol-arship reductions. Still to come: civil suits brought by Sandusky’s victims and the trials of former school administrators accused of neglecting their duty to report allegations. “We can expect more fallout,” Erickson said. Paterno is still considered by many as a sympathetic figure, and still revered as a role model by some. Clemens’ legacy doesn’t seem to resonate the same way with sports fans. It’s almost like his courtroom win was one that many did not expect to see happen, and it may be his last big victory for a while. Clemens — the only seven-time Cy Young Award winner — is on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time this year, and a recent survey of vot-ers by the AP shows that he is likely to fall well short of the number of votes necessary for induction in 2013. Clemens was accused by former personal train-er Brian McNamee in the Mitchell Report on drugs in baseball of using ste-roids and HGH, allegations Clemens denied before Congress. Eventually, after a Justice Department inves-tigation looked into whether Clemens lied under oath, a grand jury indicted him on two counts of perjury, three counts of making false statements and one count of obstructing Congress. He was acquitted of all the charges on June 19 after a 10-week trial. “I’m very thankful,” Clemens said. “It’s been a hard five years.” Armstrong’s fight lasted even longer than that. The testicular-cancer survivor won the Tour de France seven times, all while dogged by the stig-ma of he-must-be-cheat-ing. Armstrong was never caught by a drug test, but rather was ultimately done in largely by the words of his former teammates. Armstrong continues to deny doping, but simply said his fight had gone on long enough. Giving up has come with a price. Armstrong cut ties to his well-known charity, Livestrong, and longtime sponsor Nike — among other corporations — cut ties with him. And as for Summitt, one of the greatest names in coaching, her last loss was against an invisible oppo-nent. Summitt stepped down as Tennessee’s coach in April, a few months after reveal-ing she has been diagnosed with early onset dementia. Summitt led Tennessee to eight national titles in her 38-year tenure, win-ning 1,098 Division I games along the way. “It’s never a good time,” Summitt said. “But you have to find the time that you think is the right time and that is now.” Still, the year wasn’t gloom and doom for every-one, not by a long shot. Alabama got a chance to avenge a loss to LSU and win college football’s national championship, the second for the Tide in three years. The Tide will be back in the BCS title game again in January, against rising and surprising Notre Dame. Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers became baseball’s first Triple Crown winner in 45 years. The Kings put together a stunning run through the Stanley Cup playoffs, the last celebratory moment the NHL got to enjoy before more labor strife led to a lockout. Baylor went 40-0 for the NCAA women’s bas-ketball title, while Kentucky returned to the top of the men’s game. And the Giants (New York) and Giants (San Francisco) more than lived up to their names, in cham-pionship fashion. But if there was one happy ending among all those the drawn-out sagas of this sports year, it was the year James had with the Heat. Miami won the NBA title, beating Oklahoma City in five games for the franchise’s second title and the first for James, who left Cleveland for the Heat two years earlier for moments such as that. He won the league’s MVP award. He won the NBA Finals MVP award. He even helped the Americans win another bas-ketball gold medal at the London Olympics. After all he went through — from hero to villain, revered to pariah for his infamous “Decision” — James found a way to shake it all off and complete his quest. “It’s a year I know I’m never going to forget,” James said. Not many people will.Thing is, in so many cases in 2012, it isn’t for the right reasons. ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Oct. 9 file photo, former Penn State University assista nt football coach Jerry Sandusky (center) is taken from th e Centre County Courthouse by Centre County Sheriff Denny N au (left) and a deputy, after being sentenced in Bellefonte, Pa.

The Sandusky saga was a top story in the spor ts world in 2012. Sports ode 2012: London, Lance, a Tide of GiantsBy FRED LIEFAssociated PressSo how was your year? Setbacks, advances? Hey, no doubt, it went better than Lance’s. First up on sports’ yearlong ride: An unrelenting Crimson Tide. JoePa makes his great migration Trailed by heartache, litigation. Eli’s coming and Giants roll Past Brady in the Super Bowl. Suddenly, all’s Linsanity:Headlines, puns, sheer inanity. Daytona, Kenseth — let’s explain: The night sets fire to the rain. Then football gets its jolt of jolts When Peyton’s place is not with Colts. Tebow leaves the Mile High air And joins the Jets — a time for prayer. Kentucky wins, backed by Davis. Rent a team (call Hertz or Avis). Baylor follows. Need a reason? Brittney Griner, perfect season. The shaken Saints now turn to Vitt. Pat Summitt says it’s time to quit. Pro football vets demand their due. Concussed and angry, thousands sue. I’ll Have Another’s path seems clear, But still no Triple Crown this year. Wait a second. Can this be right? Manny Pacquiao lost a fight? Lord Stanley’s Cup goes to the Kings While hockey’s woes wait in the wings. After all the sound and fury, Clemens walks, cleared by a jury. The Heat are champs. It looks like reign. South Beach party — LeBron and Dwyane. Sandusky’s jury has its say: This coach won’t see the light of day. Come Wimbledon, Serena’s crown. Paterno’s statue taken down. Then Wiggins rides with guile and grit. The Tour de France goes to a Brit. Olympics start, McCartney sings. Phelps swims with gills, Bolt soars with wings. Pistorius runs, Gabby’s great. A specter looms: Badmintongate. Brilliant games, with heart and brio. Snuff the flame and on to Rio. Augusta bends. How awfully nice. A female member — Condi Rice. Lance lambasted for all to see, His lies unfold as sponsors flee, His titles stripped, life off its hinge. Now it’s all about the syringe. Perfect time to make this wager: Andy Murray wins a major. The NHL then shuts its door. (I think we’ve heard this song before.) Replacement refs prove one big mess. The league is forced to acquiesce. Ryder Cup comes to Medinah. Europe gives U.S. angina.Hold no vote, form no committee — Washington’s a baseball city. Those Oakland A’s, no hand-me-down. Miguel Cabrera, Triple Crown. Buster Posey and Hunter Pence. This really doesn’t make much sense. The Giants sweep to take it all. Black and orange, the style for fall. No marathon, New York City. Sandy strikes and shows no pity. Colts ride a wave of splendid Luck. They shave their heads and play for Chuck. The Lakers stumble, won’t sit still, Sign Mike D’Antoni, pass on Phil. Keselowski, Penske Sprint to Cup. Notre Dame, ‘Bama, coming up. College conferences realign, In thrall to TV’s dollar sign. Maryland, Rutgers, Big Ten bound. The money chase goes round and round. The Chiefs and Cowboys reel from blows. The NFL’s in mourning clothes. Johnny Football wins Heisman race. Pacquiao’s crushed, flat on his face. The year is quickly put to bed, With what’s been done and what’s been said, While limbering up sight unseen For what’s on deck ... 2013.

To the Editor:Christmas was a happy time and the most celebrated time of year when I was a child in the Lackawanna area of Jacksonville in the 1950s. Almost all the stores and most homes were decorated, includ-ing the manger scene. We even decorated our school classroom to celebrate Christmas. I can remember our teacher telling us the story of Jesus’ birth, the Wise Men, the manger and the whole account as she read from the Bible. Everybody was happy scurrying around in preparation for Christmas. As we met people, we greeted almost everybody with “Merry Christmas.” Everybody seemed like they had a smile on their faces. Daddy was a blacksmith, and we lived in an 800-square-foot home with five children. Santa didn’t leave much, but we cel-ebrated as mother cooked the tradi-tional Christmas meal. It had to be crowded as we all sat down for the Christmas meal. I don’t know how it could have been any better. So, what has happened? We have taken Christ out of Christmas. Many don’t want the name of Jesus used anywhere. The display of the man-ger scene is almost extinct. We are discouraged from praying in public. All crosses are drawing criticism. We are divided as never before. The battle against Jesus has been going on for a long time. The liber-als, progressives and Democrats are winning this battle against religion. Our beautiful fully developed unborn babies are being extracted from the womb and disposed of. Our nation is declining to the point of no return. The answer is easy: Return to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Return to the God of the Bible. Return to the United States Constitution, and in God we trust. God bless America.

In 1937, composer Maurice Ravel died in Paris at age 62. In 1945, Congress officially recognized the Pledge of Allegiance. In 1961, the Tennessee Williams play “Night of the Iguana” opened on Broadway. Former first lady Edith Bolling Galt Wilson, the sec-ond wife of President Woodrow Wilson, died in Washington at age 89. In 1972, Kim Il Sung, the premier of North Korea, was named the country’s president under a new constitution. Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding coun-ties by Community Newspapers Inc. We believe strong newspapers build strong communities —“Newspapers get things done!” Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers. This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman If plans to deepen the seaport at Jacksonville ever get the green light, we may one day find ourselves positioned to get an inland port in Columbia County. The theory — and it’s a good one — is that the ongoing expansion of the Panama Canal to allow even bigger cargo ships will create significantly more traffic on the Eastern Seaboard, resulting in an even greater demand for dock space. JaxPort and its counterparts all along the coast are speeding up work to accommodate the super-ships by 2014, or as soon after as they can manage, when the canal’s expan-sion is scheduled for completion. Of course, even without an upgrade, JaxPort will see lots more traffic, if only from regular-sized cargo ships. And since offload space there is already limited, why not ship some of the goods inland? As local business leaders have long observed, it’s a straight shot down CSX rail to the North Florida Intermodal Park, aka the Catalyst Site, and we’ve got plenty of room there for containers awaiting shipment all across America, by means of rail, inter-state highway or air. It’s natural, then, that we’d have a heightened interest in the stalled negotiations between shipping companies and the International Longshoremen’s Association, which could lead to the partial closure of U.S. seaports as early as Saturday. Though for that matter, of course, a work stoppage would likely have a direct and immediate effect on every Floridian, no mat-ter where they live. According to the governor, Florida’s ports create more than a half-million direct and indirect jobs in the Sunshine State, and pump $66 billion into the peninsula’s econo-my. And while we sympathize, as best we can, with the $50-an-hour dockworkers who don’t want to lose container royalties that add more than $15,000 a year to each of their paychecks, this isn’t the time for a strike. As observed by Paul Anderson, the Tampa port director, the combination of closed ports and the looming fiscal cliff could put an already fragile recovery in serious dan-ger. Not what we need at the moment.If the two sides can’t at least agree on a stop-gap measure to keep the ports open until this fiscal-cliff business is behind us, President Obama should intervene, as Scott has already requested. Our ports ought not be allowed to shut down for even a day. Bad timing Resolutions for politicians OUR OPINION S ome people say 2012 was a less-than-stellar year for our political system. Some people say it would be good if our favorite politi-cians made some New Year’s resolutions. Here are some suggestions. President Barack Obama should resolve to smoke more cigars with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. The two men basically stopped talking as the fiscal cliff loomed. A few stogies — or Obama’s penchant for beer summits — might work. Boehner should resolve to drink more of his favor-ite beverage, wine — with Obama. See above. He should also never mention Plan B again. Vice President Joe Biden should resolve to stay off Sunday talk shows (you remember when he preempted the president’s policy change on gay marriage on “Meet the Press”) — unless it’s U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s turn to speak for the administration. Rice should resolve to pay no attention to CIA talking points. About any-thing. Former President Bill Clinton should resolve to stop speculating on whether his wife Hillary will run for president in 2016 and just say, well, duh, of course she’s going to run. Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should resolve to stick to one hairstyle so we’ll stop talking about how it changes daily. Incoming Secretary of State John Kerry should do something to spice up his boring demeanor. Perhaps he should change his hairstyle. Tea partiers should resolve to stop pretend-ing and just admit: Yes, we don’t care if the nation goes into default and stops paying its debts and causes the markets to crash and the economy to falter. Just so Obama gets the blame. Democrats should resolve to stop pretending and just admit: Yes, we want elderly people who vote our party line to get higher and higher Social Security and Medicare benefits until the piggy bank is empty. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should resolve to keep being snarky to anyone who questions his motives, his weight, his conservative credentials or his handshakes with Obama. It seems to work for him. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush should stop being coy and statesmanlike and admit: Yes, I should be the next president. I couldn’t possibly be worse than my brother. Besides, what’s not to like about another Clinton-Bush race? Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., should continue to knock John Boehner as a cog in the wheel: Yes, I’m the only one who can make a deal with his col-leagues. (I’m also the only Mormon in a top leader-ship role these days now that what’s-his-name who didn’t even want to be president is gone.) Departed CIA director and four-star Gen. David Petraeus, considering a number of book propos-als, should resolve to participate in no more biographies that turn into career-busters. And not even think of running for president. “Meet the Press” host David Gregory, in hot water for airing a high-capacity magazine the pos-session of which is against the law in the District of Columbia where the weekly political show is filmed, should resolve to stick to questions and for-get props. Texas Gov. Rick Perry should resolve to learn about the various departments of government, especially those he wants to eliminate. And he should resolve to never, ever again run for presi-dent just because he has never had a bad hair day. Rep. Paul Ryan, RWis., Mitt Romney’s running mate and likely presidential candidate in 2016, should resolve never to talk about fiscal cliffs, debt limits, rape (legitimate or otherwise) or what exactly was in Romney’s proposed bud-get. Perpetual gadfly Newt Gingrich should resolve to stop shopping at Tiffany’s and occasionally turn to his (current) wife Callista and muss up her hair. Sen. Scott Brown, RMass., who may run for John Kerry’s Senate seat after losing to long-shot Elizabeth Warren in a race that cost a total of $85 million, should resolve to stop goading her about not having enough Native American blood. Montana Democrat Sen. Jon Tester, a farmer / meat butcher who barely won re-election after tout-ing his image as a tough guy who made his living using a gun for 25 years, should resolve to show more of his feminine side and music-teacher back-ground.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28-29, 2012 DEAR ABBY: My daughter was repeatedly date-raped at the age of 16. Her predator threatened to kill her if she ever told, so she kept it to herself until she could get away from him. It was a very scary time in her life, but with the help of counseling she is working through it and moving on with her life. The problem is, while visiting with my in-laws it was pointed out to us that my mother-in-law had made a collage of pictures and included in it the per-son who raped my daugh-ter. In all, there are five pictures of him in group settings. When my hus-band asked her calmly to remove them, she refused. She says it would punish the other grandchildren if she removed the pictures, and it would “ruin her col-lage.” We have asked her three times, but she refuses to budge. She says WE all need counseling and that the request is completely out of line. Do you think our request was out of line? -APPALLED IN ILLINOIS DEAR APPALLED: Of course not! Was your mother-in-law aware of what this person had done to her granddaughter when the collage was cre-ated? If so, her reaction is bizarre and unbelievably insensitive. Approach her once more and ask if she would agree to take the collage to a photographer so your daughter’s attacker can be digitally edited out of it. If that’s not possible, perhaps she would agree to take down the collage when your family visits. However, if the response to that request is also negative, I wouldn’t blame you if you went there very rarely, if ever. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: What do you say to people when they tell you they will “pray for you” when you’re dealing with an illness or other life tragedy if you are a nonbeliever? Statistics say that 34 percent of Americans are nonbeliev-ers, so please address this to the 34 percent who share my feelings of appreciation for the senti-ment, but feel like hypo-crites for playing along to reciprocate their kindness. I wonder if any of your nonbeliever readers can share how they internally deal with this dilemma. -NONBELIEVER, BUT GRATEFUL DEAR NONBELIEVER: I’m sure they will, in droves. However, because nonbelievers physically resemble those who ARE believers, and nonbelievers don’t usually wear symbols indicating their nonbelief, it’s understandable that someone of faith would attempt to offer comfort that way. And most people battling a serious illness welcome a “blast of positiv-ity,” whether it is couched in religious terms or not. When someone offers to pray for you, it’s usually because the person cares about you, knows you are sick and feels helpless to offer anything more to help. Accept it for what it is, and say thank you rather than tell the person that what they offered is, in your eyes, worthless. That’s called being gra-cious -regardless of your religious or nonreligious convictions. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My husband of eight years will not resolve his foot odor problem. We live in a small apartment, and it’s humiliating when we have company and half the apartment smells like stinky feet. He refuses to wear socks, and his solution in winter is to open all the windows and turn on the fan as soon as he returns from work. The “airing out” never completely gets rid of the smell -and I freeze! How can I get him to change? -FED UP IN MANHATTAN DEAR FED UP: You obviously can’t change your husband, but you don’t have to risk getting pneumonia, either. Shoe repair shops sell deodor-izing products in the form of sprays and powders. Or buy a large container of baking soda, and when your husband removes his shoes, dump a cupful into each one. They next day the smell should be gone. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have been dating “Lance” for about two years now. We communicate well, have great chemistry and are very affectionate with each other. Lance is kind, cre-ative (he’s an artist) and considerate. However, he lacks ambition. I’m a big thinker who wants big things in life. I have traveled extensively and am very involved in the world of academia. Lance works in a bar three nights a week and plays video games when I’m not around. I know from our conversations that he is intelligent and capable of doing so much more. Is there any way to motivate him without nagging? I feel I may be selling myself short by being with someone who is content to sit on the couch. On the other hand, I have dated more ambitious men who turned out to be jerks. Must women have to choose between nice guys who finish last and domi-nating power mongers? -ASKING TOO MUCH? IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR ASKING TOO MUCH?: The male sex is not divided into two cat-egories -nice guys who finish last and power mon-gers. If you look around, you will see there are control freaks who finish last, and nice men who work hard at their jobs or professions and are suc-cessful. If you feel you are selling yourself short by being with Lance, then you prob-ably are. If you would like to motivate him, tell him you think you need to be with someone who has more direction in life. If that doesn’t galvanize him to action, nothing will. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: After being in a four-year rela-tionship with an alcoholic who was emotionally, ver-bally and at times physi-cally abusive, I got out. I have moved back with my parents to save money so I can get my own place. When I told my mother about some of the inci-dents that happened, she said, “I know how you can be.” My father seemed more supportive -until recently. My ex has a son I grew close to, as did my parents. Last week, I found out my ex had contacted them and his son will be com-ing here for a visit. Abby, I don’t want my ex to know anything about my current life! I’m afraid he’s trying to manipulate and torment me while I try to move forward. I can’t seem to get through to my mom, and Dad just looked at me and said, “Well, YOU’RE the one who stayed for so long!” Any advice would be greatly appreciated. -HURT DAUGHTER IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR HURT DAUGHTER: I’ll try. When people are attracted to -and stay with -a part-ner who is emotionally, verbally and sometimes physically abusive, it’s sometimes because there was dysfunction in their upbringing. You don’t say how long you have been staying with your parents, but if there is no alterna-tive, you need to stick to your plan and stay until you have enough money to rent a place of your own. When the boy arrives, greet him warmly and spend as little time there as possible. Give him no information about your work or your social life other than to say you are very happy. And as soon as you have enough money to establish some indepen-dence, get out of there. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Domestic problems will leave you in doubt. Step out and take part in an event that will lead to new friendships or con-necting with someone who has similar interests. Love is on the rise and commu-nication will open up a win-dow of opportunity. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Travel with or to meet with someone special. A closer look at family backgrounds will help you come up with a suitable lifestyle that will fit your future plans. Share your feelings, but accept and compromise what’s offered in return. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Reminiscing about someone from your past should be followed up with an email. Making plans to reunite with someone will solve many of your unan-swered questions about the past as well as the future. A partnership will undergo change. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Stick to your game plan regardless of the responsibilities that someone gives you. Being able to handle whatever challenge comes your way will enhance your reputa-tion and give you greater confidence to pursue other dreams in the New Year. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t hide information or feelings that need to be revealed. Speak up and clear the air so you can make the changes that will help you choose a better path. Don’t let someone else’s responsibilities hold you back. Do what’s best for you. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do your best to help others. You will impress someone you’ve wanted to work alongside or get to know better. Don’t let old rules or negative indi-viduals stand in the way of your happiness. Focus on your future and your con-tribution. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Diplomacy will help you get your point across without discord. You can explore avenues that will help you make an impor-tant decision regarding your professional future or your geographical location. Love is in the stars but personal changes must be implemented. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Live and learn. Travel and research will go hand in hand. A chance to expe-rience a different lifestyle or traditions will help you make a decision regard-ing your future. Be honest about what you want and how you want to proceed. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Put more effort into personal preparation for the upcoming year. A new look image or direc-tion will lead to interesting friendships, partnerships and opportunities. Don’t miss out on a romantic adventure. Strive to enjoy more, spend less and sim-plify your life. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Emotions will be heightened and secrets are likely to be divulged. Don’t let impulsive actions ruin your plans or your relation-ship with someone. Talk matters through until you come up with a workable plan. Freedom and equal-ity are a must. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Activity will be a must, along with experi-mentation, love, romance and self-improvement projects. Extending an invitation or having friends over for a pre-end-of-the-year get-together will lead to a closer bond with the people you care about most. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have some unusual ideas that can lead to a prosperous endeavor. Check out the possibilities and set aside some time to source what you will need to move forward. Take better care of your health and avoid overindulgent people. +++++ THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Grandmother’s photo collage brings back painful memories Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

On December 21, 2012 a beautiful life came to an end. Keturah,affectionately known by all as “Cherry”, accepted Christ at an early age and became a lifelong member of Union African Meth-odist Episcopal Church in Lake City, Florida. During her young adult life she and her husband Delmer traveled extensively thru Europe and France where he was stationed.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, December 28-29, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V The walk of a faithful minister The end of the world is comingA s a minister of the Gospel and a stu-dent of the word, it is my responsibility to preach and teach the truth about God’s Word; the same is true for all ministers of the Gospel. Paul, in his writing to young Timothy said “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.” (I Tim 4:1. Please read verses 2-3). It is plain truth to say that so many today have departed from the faith. Paul, in this chapter, is com-pelling ministers of the Gospel to “walk the good walk”; to be sure they are not lured into departing from the faith; in other words compromising the doctrine of God. (Compromise is to partially wave one’s teaching of principles for the sake of settlement, any-thing of intermediate or mixed kind.) The doctrine of God can-not be mixed with the doctrines of demons and anything that is not of God is of the Devil (doc-trine simply means teaching). It is a sad thing today as we prepare to start a new year, that so many in every denomination have departed from the teaching of God. As we face the New Year, our only hope as a people, as a nation, is to turn back to God. We want to make our little groups right and everyone else wrong. The Bible says let God be true and every man a liar (Romans 3:4). Without God as the head, no one knows what to expect in the coming year. If we will only follow Paul’s instruction to young Timothy in chapter 4 of I Timothy, where there are four references to teaching and doctrine. Verse 6 says: “If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good min-ister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.” In this verse a good minister is to instruct in good doctrine. Verse 11 says: “These things command and teach.” A good minister commands the truth to be taught. Verse 13 says: “Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doc-trine.” Here Paul says not only to read but to entreat, to urge one to pursue a course of conduct, staying with the doctrine. Then in verse 16 Paul sends a warning to Timothy: “Take heed to your-self and to the doctrine, continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.” Paul is saying to be a good minister one must heed; in other words to pay attention more earnestly to doctrine; to continue in them. This is the way to bring lost souls to the Lord. Verses 7-8 tell us that we are to reject unbiblical things emphatically. The text makes it clear that just as closely we should keep Biblical doctrine we should distance ourselves from unbiblical doctrine. We should clearly reject false doctrine. See I Timothy 6:20; II Timothy 2:16. Paul also told the Galatians and the church at Corinth the same thing. Brothers and sisters, the only way to help our nation is to heed the doctrine of God and to walk in it. T here was a lot of talk and writing about the Mayan calendar saying the world was coming to an end. However, because this article was written after the supposed “deadline” and you are read-ing this article after the “end” was supposed to come, we can accurately conclude that the end of the world did not occur. However, one danger that we need to face is the attitude of complacency toward the end of the world coming. We may call it the “crying wolf” syndrome. The apostle Peter implies that the world will come to an end when God has given “His word” for the world to end (2 Peter 3:7). Our assurance can be in God’s promises because they never fail. To His disciples as well as the multitudes who heard His teachings, Jesus gave multiple warnings that the end of the world would come. The apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonians (4:13-5:11) and Peter wrote “to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours” about what will happen to everything created when Jesus returns (2 Peter 1:1; 3:3-9). From these dif-ferent passages we can have the confidence that the end of the world is coming. When Jesus spoke about the end of the world coming, He used the coming of a thief to one’s house as an analogy. If people know when the thief is coming, then they are at home and prepared for the thief’s arrival (Luke 12:39). Another analogy Jesus used is the return of the master, coming home after a long journey, and how different slaves anticipated his return (Luke 12:42-46). Based upon the parable Jesus taught, we need to always be prepared for the Lord’s return; for the end of the world to come. If we live our lives think-ing that we can know when He will return then we will find ourselves unprepared. If we live our lives thinking it does not matter when He will return then we will always be ready. Just prior to the Lord’s return and the end of the world com-ing, people are going to be doing “every day” things like they have always done “from the beginning of creation” (2 Peter 3:4). Jesus said things would be like the days of Noah, when the flood came. The people “were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in mar-riage” (Luke 17:27). He goes on to say that it will be like what happened “in the days of Lot … they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building” (Luke 17:28). It is going to be like any normal day, but it will be the last day. Based upon what Paul and Peter said would occur when Jesus returns, then we will not have an opportunity to make things “right.” Peter said “the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10). Fear of the end, fear of destruction will motivate people for only a short period of time. Only when our lifestyle becomes such that we are pre-pared for the end of the world to come either today or tomor-row, then will we truly be pre-pared for the Lord’s return. Let’s get and stay prepared for the end of the world to come. It is not a matter of if, but when will the world come to an end. Don’t let the “little boy crying wolf” syndrome cause you to lower your guard. Be the faithful slave who was ready for his master to return. You won’t regret it!

The other never had a statue erected in his honor, although some said there should be one, bronze or otherwise, at the doorstep of the Baseball Hall of Fame. He would live to see himself spurned by the Hall five times. Joe Paterno and Marvin Miller, a couple of New Yorkers, were bookends to the year’s losses in sports — the football coach dying at 85 in January, the union leader at 95 a few days shy of December. The year’s obituaries in sports also came with a tragic soundtrack of gunfire: Junior Seau, Hector Camacho, Jovan Belcher. More quietly, base-ball now moves on without Gary Carter and basketball without Jack Twyman and Rick Majerus. Big names in boxing like Angelo Dundee and Carmen Basilio also were lost. Paterno’s legacy was a complicated mix of football and education, universities and leadership, responsibil-ity and justice. Miller was an often unspoken part of a running conversation about the culture of money of sports, and the rights of the people who play the games. Paterno’s death came less than three months after it was disclosed he had lung cancer. That news fell on a State College, Pa., commu-nity already shocked by the child sex-abuse revelations regarding longtime assis-tant coach Jerry Sandusky. Paterno’s death closed a sweeping narrative, although the legal fallout and emotional wreckage are still very much alive. The swiftness of it all was almost Shakespearean in scope: the fall of a man who for so long was the symbol of everything right in his work only to be undone by scandal and cast aside. In his blue windbreaker and black-rimmed glasses and his words still carry-ing echoes of Brooklyn, Paterno was the face and foundation of Penn State. He raised many millions of dollars for the school. His was the voice of per-spective and reason in col-lege sports. He won more games than anyone else, until the NCAA over the summer vacated victories dating to 1998. Legions of Penn State players — and countless others in State College — swore by the man. He been on the coach-ing staff for more than 60 years, and had been the head coach since 1966. He was JoePa. But then came the startling accusations and subsequent conviction, after Paterno’s death, of Sandusky. Paterno insisted he followed the chain of command, informing his athletic director of what he was told had happened, although he did not go to the police. Paterno said he was not given a graphic account of Sandusky’s locker-room rape of a young boy. Later, with the Washington Post in his last interview, he acknowledged a naivete — “I never heard of ... rape and a man.” Paterno’s remorse had already been clear by then. Hours before Penn State trustees fired him, he said: “This is a tragedy. It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.” Miller sent a bulldozer through the landscape of Major League Baseball, and by the time he was done the terrain of all professional sports would never look the same. Miller, with silver hair and mustache, cut his union teeth with the steelworkers. Surely one of his biggest triumphs was getting players to think of themselves as an orga-nized work force with rights, not hired hands serving at the whim of ownership. “He changed not just the sport but the business of the sport permanently,” for-mer baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent said.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28-29, 2012 7A7AReligion R udy (his full name is Jose Rudy Robertavich Exum) is very lucky. We think he expe-rienced divine interven-tion. Rudy thinks he is Doberman pinscher, but he is all Chihuahua. He weighs 10 pounds (maybe more now), is black and tan with cute floppy ears. He is the joy of my brother and his wife, commonly referred to as “ooour baaaby” (unless someone gets mad at him). For two weeks, he was a guest at our place since my sister-in-law was on a trip overseas and my brother was in the hospital. What happened was, Bob came over to pick up his breath-ing equipment, and when he left, Rudy decided to follow him on the road. My wife ran after Rudy, but by the time she got to him, he had had his brush with death. In following Bob, a big truck came from behind Rudy and passed right over him. The wind draft from the truck knocked poor Rudy over on his face, causing him to bleed a bit. When my wife got to him, he was on his side, his legs were stiff and he was shaking, and his mouth bleeding. My wife called me, in tears, saying “Rudy was run over!” Well, Rudy survived somehow. What went through Rudy’s mind as all this happened? Well, since I understand dog-language, we sat and had a man-to-dog talk, and he told me. “I sure have learned my lesson.” Of course, I agreed with him, since it scared everyone. “What made you run after Bob?” I asked. Rudy said, “ I just love Bob.” I asked Rudy, “Do you hold this against Bob?” Rudy said, “No, I forgive Bob for not seeing me, ’cause I know he loves me.” We can learn a lot about life that will help us. Things like loyalty and faithfulness, love and forgiveness. These are important, but somehow, we miss them and some of life’s greatest blessings. Before I forget, while Rudy was staying with us, he and Little Bit (our Dachshund) made friends. It took some time to get over the territorial chal-lenges, but they seemed to make a secret pact to coop-erate and deal with Molly (our cat). You may remem-ber Molly from articles that dad wrote. Anyway, they worked together to play with Molly. She did not appreciate this at all. They were not allowed to be rough, but they had fun. Molly would have her sweet revenge as well. She would sneak up from behind Rudy, or Little Bit, and pounce on their backs. Rudy lost a pound and a half during the two weeks, running after Molly, but gained it back when he went home. Overall, it was a good two weeks that we all enjoyed. In the end when we had to give him back to Bob and Sveta, it was a bit difficult, but now when we go and visit, Rudy always remembers us, and gives us a great welcome. Paul said “Love never fails” (I Corinthians 13:8). No, he wasn’t talking about pets, but for sure we can learn to love and for-give from them. Trust me, life will go better when we do.Many perspectives, one truthE veryone has a per-spective. In order to be convinced of this fact, simply ask two or three, or even 20 different people to describe the same thing to you. Perspective is defined as a “coordinated out-look,” which makes sense when we realize our perspectives are formed through the “coordina-tion” of our individual under-standing, experiences, values, and beliefs. If we remember this, it is much easier to understand how someone else’s perspective can be in opposition to our own. In John 4:1-3, the Bible records the following situation: “The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptiz-ing more disciples than John (the Baptist), although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. In order to understand all that was going on in these few vers-es, let’s check out the perspectives of everyone involved: Pharisees: We often label the Pharisees as “bad guys,” but from their perspective, they were serving God and following tradition. However, tradition can sometimes keep us from recog-nizing God at work right in front of us. These religious leaders resented Jesus’ popularity almost as much as they resented the fact that His message challenged much of their teachings.. It is possible they thought that Jesus left Judea because He heard of their displeasure and was afraid of them. In any case, they were probably very glad that He left and hoped that would be the end of their trouble. Jesus: Although Jesus was gaining disciples, it was actually the disciples who were baptizing, and not Jesus himself. According to many verses in the four gos-pels, Jesus did not challenge the Pharisees opposition because it was not yet the right time. He was confident of His mission and as we read in John 4:4, Jesus left Judea because He had a very important meeting with a Samaritan woman. (We will talk more about her in the weeks to come.) John the Baptist: After reading John 4:1-3, if anyone should be concerned over Jesus gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, wouldn’t it would be John? However, the Bible records John’s answer to this very question when some of his own disciples seemed concerned about the same issue: “He (Jesus) must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30) John the Baptist was able to answer this with confidence because he was very clear about the purpose of his ministry. John 1:29 reveals this purpose: “The reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.” John understood that Jesus was here on a mission much bigger than simply competing with ministry numbers. Jesus’ Disciples: Remember these were the ones actually doing the baptizing. They under-stood what was going on very clearly because they had left everything to follow Jesus. In John 1:35-42 we find that two of Jesus’ disciples actually started out as disciples of John: “John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God!’ When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.” One of the two was Andrew and, “the first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and bring him to Jesus. Jesus immediately changed Simon’s name to Peter and then proceeded to change his life. No wonder these dis-ciples were baptizing — they had experienced the power of God through a relationship with Jesus and they wanted others to know. By combining the different perspectives found in these verses, we get the big picture and the whole truth: Only Jesus can change a life; the rest of us have the option of pointing the way or standing in the way. What is your perspective? Because every heart matters.

Israel revisiting ban on female prayer at holy siteAssociated PressJERUSALEM — Israel’s prime minister has instruct-ed a quasi-governmental Jewish organization to find a solution for non-Orthodox Jewish female groups wanting to pray at one of Judaism’s holiest sites. An official said Tuesday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked Natan Sharansky, chairman of the Jewish Agency, to look into the matter. The official spoke anonymously accord-ing to government regula-tions. Israeli police detained women from a liberal Jewish group who approached the Western Wall in Jerusalem on Dec. 14 carrying prayer shawls. Orthodox Jews insist those are for men only. The women seek to worship at the site without such restrictions. Jewish Agency spokesman Benjamin Rutland said Netanyahu told Sharansky that the Western Wall “must remain a source of Jewish unity rather than division.” The wall is a remnant of the biblical Jewish Temple com-pound.Similar scenes have played out almost a dozen times every year since the group known as Women of the Wall was first estab-lished nearly 25 years ago. Its members have endured arrests, heckling and legal battles in a strug-gle to attain what they con-sider their inalienable right — to pray and worship at the Western Wall just as men do. Under Israel’s predominantly Orthodox Jewish tradition, only men may wear a prayer shawl, a skullcap and phylacteries. Liberal Reform Judaism, marginal in Israel but the largest denomination in the United States, allows women to practice the same way as men do in Orthodox Judaism: They may be ordained as rabbis, read from the Torah, the Jewish holy book, and wear prayer shawls. The multi-denominational Women of the Wall adheres to that lib-eral stream. Since 1988, its members have come to the holy site 11 times a year to pray on the first day of the new Jewish month, except on the New Year. The police know they are coming and are on the lookout. The group’s mem-bers have been repeatedly detained, as soon as they are perceived to be offend-ing Orthodox sensibilities — such as carrying a Torah scroll or if they try to drape themselves in the shawls. They are usually released after a few hours. They have never been charged — evidence, the women say, that what they are doing is not illegal. “We want to have the ability to pray out loud, to wear a prayer shawl, to read the Torah. And we want to do it without fear at the Western Wall,” said Anat Hoffman, the group’s chairwoman. ASSOCIATED PRESSIsraeli women of the Women of the Wall organization hold a a prayer vigil just outside the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray in Je rusalem’s old city on Dec. 14. Security guards usually search worshippers for weapon s upon entering. When several dozen women draped prayer shawls — traditionally only worn by men — attempted to enter the area, their multicolored garments were confiscated by Isra eli security guards. Stolen Bible found in antique shopAssociated PressST. LOUIS — A 19thcentury Bible stolen from a St. Louis church several days before Christmas has turned up at an antique shop and a suspect has been arrested. The St. Louis PostDispatch reports that a man hawked the Bible for $30 Sunday. But after conducting an Internet search Wednesday, the store that bought the nearly 15-pound Bible learned it had been stolen from St. Johns Lutheran Church. The shop owners called police were called and the Bible returned. The church has been the target of repeated burglaries. Thieves have stolen property, ruined food for the poor and damaged the building itself. Police believe the man who’s been arrested may be responsible for six bur-glaries at the church since September. Now, an anonymous donor is contributing money so the church can buy a security system.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28-29, 2012 7B7BPuzzles Of the 109 major races that Mario Andretti won in his illustrious driving career,few couldcompare with his victory in the 1967 Daytona500.That victory,his only NASCAR triumph injust 14 career starts,set the stage for him tobecome the only driver to win the Daytona 500,the Indianapolis 500,which he won in 1969,anda Formula One championship,in 1978. It also gave him wins in Formula One, IndyCar,World Sportscar Championship andNASCAR.Only two drivers,Andretti and DanGurney,have ever done that. Current Sprint Cup driver Juan Pablo Montoya,like Andretti,has won in NASCAR,Formula One and has an Indy 500 victory. Andretti got his chance to drive at Daytona because in 1967 he was a part of Ford MotorCompany’s motorsports team. “I was basically a Ford driver in Indy car,”he said.“I had Ford engines.” Andretti also drove sports cars for Ford,at Le Mans,Daytona and Sebring,where he won the12 Hours of Sebring with co-driver BruceMcLaren just weeks after his Daytona win. For the Daytona 500,Andretti,then just 26 years old,was assigned to the powerful Holman-Moody team,where he would be a teammate toone of the sport’s top stars,Fred Lorenzen. “Obviously it was a good team,”Andretti said. “The best part was Ralph Moody [a team co-owner] took my project on himself.” Moody chose the crafty crew chief Jake Elder to prepare Andretti’s No.11 Ford. “Out of the gate my car was handling very nicely,”Andretti recalled.“I really liked it,butwe didn’t have a good motor.They were not giv-ing me the best motors.I was not going forpoints.” After qualifying,Andretti began to turn the heat up on his team to give him a better engine. “I started making noise,and they finally gave me a decent motor,”he said.“I was seeing revs Ihadn’t seen before.I was scuffing tires fasterthan Curtis Turner ran to win the pole.” From that point on,Andretti felt good about his chances in the 500. Andretti started the race from 12th place and took the lead for the first time on Lap 23. While some in the field that day were satisfied to run in the draft and save their equip-ment for the finish,Andretti wanted to be outfront,in large part because he was racing with ashorter rear spoiler than he would have liked. “In those days you had to race with the spoiler you qualified with,”he said.“Because I hadsuch a weak motor,I had a lower spoiler,and Ihad to race with it. “I confused these guys a little bit.Early on in the race nobody was really aggressive;theyweren’t wanting to go for the lead,but I had togo for the lead because I was way too loosewhen I was following other cars. “They said:‘OK,kid,you go.’”Andretti was leading late in the race when he and Lorenzen made their final stops for fuel.Atthat point,the two Ford drivers were the onlyones on the lead lap,and with none of today’slucky dog free pass or wave-around rules in place,it was unlikely that any competitor couldovertake them. Andretti’s pit stop was slow,allowing Lorenzen to take the lead.Andretti maintains tothis day that the delay on his stop was inten-tional as the Ford executives at the track want-ed Lorenzen,a NASCAR regular,to win thesport’s biggest race. “They held me back for at least seven seconds,”Andretti said.“They wanted him to win.” Whatever the case,the bottom line was that Andretti left pit road a mad,motivated driver. “I hunted him down,”Andretti said of Lorenzen.“I didn’t blame him.I was just faster.I passed him,but he hung on to me really hard.I couldn’t shake him.” In that era of racing and the way the draft worked with those cars,the driver running outfront usually was a sitting duck at the finish. Then,as the lead duo came up to lap the Ford of Tiny Lund,Andretti pulled a surprise move. “Tiny motioned me to go to the right,and he pulled to the center of the backstretch,”Andrettisaid.“I all of a sudden went to the left,and Iconfused Freddie.He couldn’t figure out whathad happened. “When I came out on the other side of Tiny,I broke the draft and Freddie never could catchme.” Andretti built a 22-second lead before Richard Petty blew an engine and the final two lapswere run under caution. “It worked out for me,”Andretti said.“Once I broke the draft he couldn’t catch me.” NOTEBOOK Daytona dream almost reality Martinsville Speedway promoter Clay Campbell has been going to DaytonaInternational Speedway since he was a toddler,always dreaming that one day he’d be able torace on the hallowed high banks. “I know my way around Daytona better than I do some of the communities surroundingMartinsville,”he said.“Growing up in the busi-ness you look forward to getting to race,and asmany times as I’ve been to Daytona,I’ve beeninside and outside the track,just wishing Icould get on the track.” Now at age 52,his dream is on the verge of coming true.Campbell,a veteran of the shorttracks around his native Virginia,is set to drivethe No.08 Ford in the ARCA season opener atDaytona next February. “I go back to the Bill [France] Sr.and Annie B.[France] days,and knew a lot of the peoplefrom the ’60s to now,”he said.“I’ve seen thetransformation of the sport and of DaytonaInternational Speedway,so it’s pretty neat tofinally get to do this aspect of it.” Campbell raced this season in an ARCA race at Talladega Superspeedway,Daytona’s sistertrack,but was caught in an early multi-carcrash and didn’t get the finish he’d hoped for. Now,after a successful test at Daytona last week,he’s feeling good about his chances atDaytona. “The test went good,”he said.“Each time we went out we picked up a little bit and wound upsixth fastest overall for the weekend.” In his 25 years or so of Late Model racing, Campbell has raced and won at tracks acrossthe Southeast,but he’s competed only once atMartinsville,the track built by his late grandfa-ther Clay Earles.His career highlight so farwas winning the Limited Late Model trackchampionship at Caraway Speedway in 2000. But he said another big highlight,from Daytona,is not out of the question. “I think we have as good a shot at winning as anybody,”he said.“You see guys win there thatdon’t win anywhere else.If you have a little bitof luck on your side and stay out of trouble andwork the draft ...a win is not out of the ques-tion.”Eury begins tenure with Swan Spending a few weeks resting and deer hunting,veteran crew chief Tony Eury Jr.is back atwork in NASCAR.Eury,released late in theseason from JR Motorsports,where he is a co-owner,is now the crew chief for the No.30Toyota driven in Sprint Cup by David Stremme.At his new Swan Racing team,owned byBrandon Davis,Eury will be reunited withSteve Hmiel,a former co-worker from his daysat Dale Earnhardt Inc. “I am really impressed with the team Swan Racing is building and I am proud to be part ofit,”Eury said in a team release.“I am lookingforward to working with David Stremmebehind the wheel and with competition directorSteve Hmiel.” Hmiel also had praise for Eury.“Tony Jr.has pretty much done it all from tire changer to crew chief,”he said.“His experi-ence and knowledge will be pivotal to the suc-cess of Swan Racing.” NUMERICALLYSPEAKING Different driverswho won Sprint Cup poles in 2012 Different driverswho won Sprint Cup races in 2012 Sprint Cup racesin which J.J.Yeley failed to qualify,the mostof any driver Sprint Cup racesin which Joe Nemechek and Josh Wisedid not finish,the most ofany drivers15 17 29 11 By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick One of the most cherished awards inmotorsports is the Mario AndrettiTrophy,which is given to the driver selected as the SPEED Performer of theYear.A panel of 23 people from the motor-sports industry,including Andretti himself,chooses the winner from a list of 16 driversfrom 13 different forms of motorsports. The candidates this year are Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski,Sebastian Vetteland Fernando Alonso from Formula One,Jorge Lorenzo and Casey Stoner fromMotoGP,Ryan Hunter-Reay from IndyCar,the NHRA’s Antron Brown,Kyle Larsonfrom USAC and NASCAR,Sammy Swindelland Donny Schatz from the World ofOutlaws,Sebastien Loeb of World Rally,Andre Lotterer of WEC,Scott Pruett ofGrand-Am,Josh Hayes from AMA ProSuperbike,Ryan Villopoto from Supercrossand Max Biaggi from World Superbike. Andretti said that while the list includes several series champions,one can win thetrophy without winning a title. “You try to consider the individual effort,” he said,adding that choosing a winner thisyear was hard.“There’s a lot of talent outthere,this year especially,as far as how com-petitive each series was.” He pointed out that the championships of most major racing series weren’t decideduntil the final race. “Because of that,for us,it’s not easy,”he said.“I’d gladly hand the [voting] duties tosomebody else.” Andretti said Keselowski is certainly a strong candidate. “I love his attitude,”Andretti said.“He wants to win.He’s not satisfied with anything less,and I like that.One thing I detestis guys that say ‘I’m good if I finish top five,top 10.’ “Winning is the ultimate.Naturally you can’t win every time,but you have to havethat attitude,and he does and I like that. “And he’s shown to be a darn good little race driver.” Andretti also was impressed with how Keselowski overcame the pressure from themedia,and Jimmie Johnson,on and off thetrack,down the stretch of the Chase. “He got it done against some odds,” Andretti said.“To me that’s the mark of achampion.When you’re under pressure and you can think straight and control your emo-tions,that’s what champions are made of.People that crumble under pressure willnever accomplish that.Not everybody can dothat,believe me.But he demonstrated thathe’s well worthy of that championship.” Andretti also liked what he saw in Kyle Larson,the 19-year-old open-wheel racerwho nearly won twice in just four starts inthe Camping World Truck Series and tookthe championship of NASCAR’s K&N ProSeries East division in his first year of racingfendered vehicles. “The kid has a heck of a record this year, just phenomenal,”Andretti said.“He’s onethat we’re going to hear a lot of as we go on.Rare talents don’t come too often,and heseems to be one that has a little somethingextra special.” Andretti,who won his share of races in sprint cars,also appreciates the accomplish-ments of Sammy Swindell,who at age 57won a series-best 13 features including theprestigious King’s Royal at Tony Stewart’sEldora Speedway.He finished third in Worldof Outlaw points and led the circuit in heatraces wins and fast qualifying times. “That turkey doesn’t know when to quit,” Andretti said.“He’s amazing.I love that guy… Here’s a guy who has been winning hisentire career and keeps on winning now thathe’s a grandfather.” Andretti will present the trophy,a 100pound sculpture created by bronze artist ElieHazak,during a SPEED broadcast on Jan.27.Previous winners include Tony Stewartand Jimmie Johnson from NASCAR,Sebastian Vettel from Formula One,andTony Schumacher from the NHRA.

By LOLITA C. BALDORAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Truth is, retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf didn’t care much for his popular “Stormin’ Norman” nick-name. The seemingly no-nonsense Desert Storm com-mander’s reputed temper with aides and subordinates supposedly earned him that rough-and-ready moniker. But others around the gen-eral, who died Thursday in Tampa, Fla., at age 78 from complications from pneumonia, knew him as a friendly, talkative and even jovial figure who preferred the somewhat milder sobri-quet given by his troops: “The Bear.” That one perhaps suited him better later in his life, when he supported vari-ous national causes and children’s charities while eschewing the spotlight and resisting efforts to draft him to run for politi-cal office. He lived out a quiet retirement in Tampa, where he’d served his last military assignment and where an elementary school bearing his name is testament to his standing in the com-munity. Schwarzkopf capped an illustrious military career by commanding the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait in 1991 — but he’d managed to keep a low pro-file in the public debate over the second Gulf War against Iraq, saying at one point that he doubted vic-tory would be as easy as the White House and the Pentagon predicted. Schwarzkopf was named commander in chief of U.S. Central Command at Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base in 1988, over-seeing the headquarters for U.S. military and secu-rity concerns in nearly two dozen countries stretching across the Middle East to Afghanistan and the rest of central Asia, plus Pakistan. When Saddam invaded Kuwait two years later to punish it for allegedly stealing Iraqi oil reserves, Schwarzkopf commanded Operation Desert Storm, the coalition of some 30 countries organized by President George H.W. Bush that succeeded in driving the Iraqis out. At the peak of his postwar national celebrity, Schwarzkopf — a self-proclaimed political inde-pendent — rejected sug-gestions that he run for office, and remained far more private than other generals, although he did serve briefly as a military commentator for NBC. While focused primarily on charitable enterpris-es in his later years, he campaigned for President George W. Bush in 2000, but was ambivalent about the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In early 2003 he told The Washington Post that the outcome was an unknown: “What is postwar Iraq going to look like, with the Kurds and the Sunnis and the Shiites? That’s a huge question, to my mind. It really should be part of the overall campaign plan.” Initially Schwarzkopf had endorsed the invasion, saying he was convinced that Secretary of State Colin Powell had given the United Nations powerful evidence of Iraqi weap-ons of mass destruction. After that proved false, he said decisions to go to war should depend on what U.N. weapons inspectors found. He seldom spoke up during the conflict, but in late 2004 he sharply criti-cized Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and the Pentagon for mistakes that included erroneous judgments about Iraq and inadequate training for Army reservists sent there. “In the final analysis I think we are behind sched-ule. ... I don’t think we counted on it turning into jihad (holy war),” he said in an NBC interview. Schwarzkopf was born Aug. 24, 1934, in Trenton, N.J., where his father, Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., founder and command-er of the New Jersey State Police, was then leading the investigation of the Lindbergh kidnap case. By DAVID ESPOAP Special CorrespondentWASHINGTON — A deadline looming, President Barack Obama will meet with congressional lead-ers at the White House on Friday in search of a com-promise to avoid a year-end “fiscal cliff” of across-the-board tax increases and deep spending cuts. The development capped a day of growing urgency in which Obama returned early from a Hawaiian vacation while lawmakers snarled across a partisan divide over responsibility for gridlock on key pocket-book issues. Speaker John Boehner called the House back into session for a high-ly unusual Sunday evening session. Adding to the woes confronting the middle class was a pending spike of $2 per gallon or more in milk prices if lawmakers failed to pass farm legislation by year’s end. Four days before the deadline, the White House disputed reports that Obama was sending law-makers a scaled-down plan to avoid the fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending cuts. Administration officials confirmed the Friday meet-ing at the White House in a bare-bones announce-ment that said the president would “host a meeting.” An aide to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said the Kentucky lawmaker “is eager to hear from the pres-ident.” A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner issued a statement that said the Ohio Republican would attend and “continue to stress that the House has already passed legislation to avert the entire fiscal cliff and now the Senate must act.” While there was no guarantee of a compromise, Republicans and Democrats said privately elements of any agreement would like-ly include an extension of middle class tax cuts with increased rates at upper incomes as well as can-cellation of the scheduled spending cuts. An exten-sion of expiring unemploy-ment benefits, a reprieve for doctors who face a cut in Medicare payments and possibly a short-term mea-sure to prevent dairy pric-es from soaring could also become part of a year-end bill, they said. That would postpone politically contentious dis-putes over spending cuts for 2013. Top Senate leaders said they remain ready to seek a last-minute agreement. Yet there was no legisla-tion pending and no sign of negotiations in either the House or the Senate on a bill to prevent the tax hikes and spending cuts that economists say could send the economy into a recession. Far from conciliatory, the rhetoric was confron-tational and at times unusu-ally personal. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., accused Boehner of running a dicta-torship, citing his refusal to call a vote on legislation to keep taxes steady for most while letting them rise at upper incomes. The bill “would pass overwhelming-ly,” Reid predicted, and said the Ohio Republican won’t change his mind because he fears it might cost him re-election as speaker when the new Congress convenes next week. Boehner seems “to care more about keeping his speakership than keeping the nation on a firm financial footing,” he said in remarks on the Senate floor. A few hours later, McConnell expressed frus-tration and blamed the standoff on Obama and the Democrats. “Republicans have bent over backwards. We stepped way, way out of our comfort zone,” he said, referring to GOP offers to accept higher tax rates on some taxpayers. “We wanted an agreement, but we had no takers. The phone never rang, and so here we are five days from the new year and we might finally start talking,” McConnell said. Still, he warned: “Republicans aren’t about to write a blank check for anything the Democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff.” 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28-29, 20128A &"&%"$#)&!"&#$!%% "$&!" &""'$"#$&"!%&%% #*"'$" %&$(&"#$%$(&!&'$'&*" &"!"'!&*!$%&"$)&&%"$$%!! %&&%$&$)$))"$!('$$ &"!+"$&%&nr!!r%$#$&"#$"$ &&%$&'$!

Storm blows through EastAssociated PressCONCORD, N.H. — A muted version of a win-ter storm that has killed more than a dozen people across the eastern half of the country plodded across the Northeast on Thursday, trapping airliners in snow or mud and frustrating trav-elers still trying to return home after Christmas. The storm, which was blamed for at least 16 deaths farther south and west, brought plenty of wind, rain and snow to the Northeast when it blew in Wednesday night. Lights generally remained on and cars mostly stayed on the road, unlike many harder-hit places including Arkansas, where 200,000 homes and businesses lost power.
