Pension pay-in upheld By BILL KACZOR Associated Press TALLAHASSEE A law cham pioned by Gov. Rick Scott that requires teachers, state and coun ty workers and some municipal employees to contribute 3 percent of their pay to the states pen sion plan was narrowly upheld by the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday. The 4-3 decision reversed a trial judges ruling that the law violated the collective bargaining, contract and property rights of about 600,000 public employees including police, firefighters and other first-responders. The law, which went into effect on July 1, 2011, also repealed 3 percent annual cost-of-living increases for benefits accrued after that date. The ruling was vindication for the Republican governor who had sought an even bigger 5 per cent employee contribution and the GOP-controlled Legislature. The decision was a bitter defeat for public employee unions, led by the Florida Education Association, which had challenged the law. The courts ruling today sup ports our efforts to lower the cost of living for Florida families, Scott said in a statement.

COURT continued on 3A Spelling it out Uphill battle on guns for Obama By ERICA WERNER Associated Press WASHINGTON President Barack Obamas sweeping gun-control pack age faces an uncertain future on Capitol Hill, where major ity House Republicans are rejecting his proposals while the presidents allies in the Democratic-controlled Senate are stopping well short of pledging immediate action. The fate of his plan could ultimately hinge on a hand ful of moderate Democratic senators. Although they are unlikely to endorse the presidents call for banning assault weapons, they might go along with other proposals, such as requiring universal background checks on gun purchases. Several of those sena tors responded warily after Obama unveiled his propos als Wednesday with the chal lenge that Congress must act soon. I will look closely at all proposals on the table, but we must use common sense and respect our Constitution, said Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont. Tester told the Missoulian newspaper in his home state recently that he supports back ground checks but doesnt think an assault weapons ban would have stopped the shoot ings at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., where a gunman massacred 20 chil dren and six adults before turning the gun on himself. Obamas proposals came a month after the shootings in Newtown, which he has called the worst day of his presidency. His announce ments capped a swift and wide-ranging effort, led by Vice President Joe Biden, to respond to the deaths. The $500 million plan marks the most comprehen sive effort to tighten gun laws in nearly two decades. It also sets up a tough politi cal fight with Congress as Obama starts his second term needing Republican support to meet three looming fiscal deadlines and pass compre hensive immigration reform. The White House strategy for pressing Congress centers on building public support for the presidents measures. Theres only one voice powerful enough to make this happen: yours, Obama BATTLE continued on 3A Congress must act soon, he says, but some senators wary. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Suzanne Edwards, representing Catholic Charities Lake City Regional Office, presents the 2012 Dove Award to general manager Terry Baker on behalf of PotashCorp White Springs Wednesday for the companys outstanding participation in a variety of projects.

According to LCPD officials, around 4:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, Betty Ann Hicks, 49, walked away from her home at 434 SE Waldron Terrace and has not been seen since. Around 3:45 p.m. on Jan. 5, Lisa Hicks, called the LCPD and reported her sister Betty Ann Hicks missing. Officer Gerald Ford responded to the residence and met with Lisa Hicks, who told him the last time she saw her sister Betty was around 4:30 that morning.

AROUND FLORIDA Martin parents to give scholarship ORLANDO The par ents of Trayvon Martin are presenting a scholarship in their sons name during a Martin Luther King Jr. cel ebration in Daytona Beach. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin will join attorney Benjamin Crump for Thursdays annual banquet hosted by Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration for Florida, Inc. at the Hilton Oceanfront Hotel to honor the civil rights leader. They will present the scholarship to a local high school senior. Crump is giving the keynote address. Trayvon Martin would have graduated from high school this year. He was fatally shot last February by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman during a confrontation in Sanford. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense under the socalled stand your ground law and is awaiting trial. All convicts must pay $20 fee TALLAHASSEE An appellate court says every defendant convicted of a crime must pay a $20 fee to support Crime Stoppers programs. The full 1st District Court of Appeal on Wednesday unanimously withdrew a prior decision by a three-judge of the same court that said the assessment applied only to defendants who are fined. The new ruling noted that the law requiring the fee was revised on July 1, 2010, to change lan guage that made the fee a surcharge to any fine imposed. The 14 participating judges wrote that the cost is no longer an additional surcharge. Teller conspired to rob bank TAMPA Authorities say a teller at a Bank of America branch in Tampa helped another man rob the bank. Tampa police say a 911 caller reported a suspi cious person putting on gloves and a hoodie near the bank around noon on Wednesday. The Tampa Tribune reports an armed robbery call came in as police were responding to the original call. An arriving officer saw someone running from the bank. Tampa police say the man dropped the bag when he saw police. Officers caught up with 21-year-old Marcus Ryan Halbert after a chase. Officers say Halbert told them he and 20-yearold teller Alan Michael Ethington planned to stage the robbery. Spy cam catches man abusing cat BOCA RATON A woman who suspected her roommate of torturing her cat installed a spy camera and caught the abuse on videotape. Police arrested 25-yearold Jordan Bean Tuesday on a charge of animal cru elty after Alanna Jenkins did some preliminary undercover work. The Palm Beach Post reports Jenkins was suspi cious because her belong ings were often misplaced when she returned from work. So she installed the camera. Police say the video shows Bean enter ing Jenkins room and actively hunting the cat, named Chompers. The cat is seen hissing and moaning before Beans catches it and wraps it in a towel. Bean then seemed to smother the cat while holding her down with all of his weight. Elderly man gets 8 years for killing TAMPA A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for fatally shooting his neighbor. A Hillsborough County judge sentenced 72-yearold Trevor Dooley on Thursday. He was con victed of manslaughter in November, despite claims of self-defense. Authorities say Dooley shot 41-year-old David James at a Valicro park in September 2010. Dooley, who lived across from the park, was yelling at a skateboarder using a bas ketball court when James interceded. Witnesses say Dooley flashed a gun, starting a struggle that left James dead. James then-8-yearold daughter watched him die. Dooley testified he had no interest in a physical confrontation and only shot James because James was choking him. Man gets life for gang shooting BARTOW A 20-yearold man has been sen tenced to life in prison for a fatal gang shooting. A Polk County judge made Alejandro BaezGarcias sentence official on Thursday. He was con victed of first-degree mur der and attempted seconddegree murder last month. Because prosecutors didnt seek the death penalty, life imprisonment was the judges only option. Original Dear Abby dies at 94 MINNEAPOLIS P auline Friedman Phillips, who as Dear Abby dis pensed snappy, sometimes saucy advice on love, marriage and meddling mothers-in-law to millions of news paper readers around the world and opened the way for the likes of Dr. Ruth, Dr. Phil and Oprah, has died. She was 94. Phillips died Wednesday in Minneapolis after a long battle with Alzheimers disease, said Gene Willis, a publicist for the Universal Uclick syndicate. My mother leaves very big high heels to fill with a legacy of com passion, commitment and positive social change, her daughter, Jeanne Phillips, who now writes the column, said in a statement. Private funeral services were held Thursday, Willis said. The long-running Dear Abby column first appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1956. Mother and daughter started sharing the byline in 2000, and Jeanne Phillips took over in 2002, when the fam ily announced Pauline Phillips had Alzheimers disease. Pauline Phillips wrote under the name Abigail Van Buren. Her col umn competed for decades with the advice of Ann Landers, written by her twin sister, Esther Friedman Lederer, who died in 2002. Their relationship was stormy in their early adult years, but they later regained the closeness. Pacino to play Paterno in upcoming movie LOS ANGELES Al Pacino will play Joe Paterno in a movie about the late Penn State football coach. Producer Edward R. Pressman confirms Brian De Palma will direct Happy Valley, the tentative title of the film, based on Joe Posnanskis bestseller Paterno. Happy Valley reunites the Scarface and Carlitos Way team of De Palma and Pacino for the third time and I cant think of a better duo to tell this story of a complex, intensely righteous man who was brought down by his own tragic flaw, Pressman said in a statement. No start or release dates were given for the film. While Pressman said the plot remains under wraps, Posnanskis book followed Paternos final years, as the winningest coach in college football history saw his career end in disgrace in 2011 with the sex abuse scandal involving assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Schwarzenegger talks gun control LOS ANGELES Arnold Schwarzenegger doesnt think theres a parallel between film and real-world gun vio lence. The 65-year-old former governor of California returns to the big screen Friday as the sheriff of an Arizona border town tasked with stopping a Mexican cartel boss from returning to Mexico. It marks his first leading role since serving as The Governator for six years. I personally feel that this is enter tainment, said Schwarzenegger.

PARADE: March on Marion Avenue set for Monday Continued From Page 1Aof Transportation office off Clements Street. Weve always put on an Martin Luther King Jr. parade, said Ron Williams, Columbia County Commissioner and Northeast Florida Leadership Council president. The annual parade has been held in Columbia County for more than two decades. The North Central Leadership Council has sponsored an MLK parade from the beginning of a Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The parade grand marshals for this years event will be Ermon and Alma Owens from the Watertown community. They are pillars and pioneers in this community especially the Watertown community, Williams said. The local Martin Luther King Jr. parades traditionally average more than 50 entries and this years parade could be larger than past events because there is no entry fee to par-ticipate, Williams said. Well take entries up until 10 a.m. Monday, he said. The parade will begin near the DOT office on Marion Avenue and head north through the downtown area before making a left turn on Washington Street and ending at Memorial Stadium. Williams said continuing to hold a local parade in honor of Dr. King is an important tradition. We always say its a day on and not a day off, he said. Its something that we need to do to show that the dream is still alive for justice and equality for all men. People interested in registering a parade entry can call 752-0158 or 867-0468 or call Angela Woody at 965-8000. In addition to the grand parade, the community will continue to honor King during a commemoration ser-vice. The host church for the commemoration service is Olivet Missionary Baptist Church, 901 Davis St., with Rev. Ronald Walters Sr., pastor and keynote speaker for the event. The event will feature music, inspirational dance and a inspirational message by Walters. As part of the commemoration service, two plaques will be given to local residents for their outstand-ing achievements in mentoring local youths, on and off the field, said Audre Washington, Northeast Florida Leadership Council MLK pro-gram coordinator. Coach Brian Allen and Coach Demtric Jackson were nominated and selected as the award recipients. Following the church service, the community is invited to Annie Mattox Park for community events. There will be a flag football game featuring the men and women of Columbia County against competi-tors from Suwannee County, a mens basketball tournament and soul food vendors, Washington said. The chil-dren will have bounce houses and other fun events. The specialty of the day will be the live-streaming, via television, of the inauguration of President Barack Obama. We invite the community to a day of food, fun and family as we commemorate the life and legacy of another king, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. MISSING: Woman soughtContinued From Page 1A BATTLE: Much resistance in Congress to gun laws Continued From Page 1Awrote in an op-ed Thursday in The Connecticut Post. The president is also expected to travel around the county pitching for his proposals and could activate his still-operational campaign organiza-tion, Organizing for America, to fight for the plan as well. Campaign manager Jim Messina sent an email to Obama supporters Thursday urging them to sign a peti-tion backing the presidents proposals and promising more soon from the organization. Obama, seeking to sidestep some congressional opposition, also signed 23 executive actions Wednesday, including orders to make more fed-eral data available for background checks and end a freeze on govern-ment research on gun violence. But he acknowledged that the steps he took on his own would have less impact than the broad measures requiring approval from Capitol Hill. He is also calling for limiting ammunition maga-zines to 10 rounds or less. To make a real and lasting difference, Congress, too, must act, Obama said. The question now is how and whether that happens. House GOP leaders have made clear theyll wait for the Senate to act first, since they see no need to move on the contentious topic if it doesnt. House committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations. And if the Senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that, said Michael Steel, spokesman to House Speaker John Boehner. Many rank-and-file Republicans scorched Obamas proposal. The right to bear arms is a right, despite President Obamas disdain for the Second Amendment, said Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan. Senators are expected to begin discussions on how to proceed when they return to Washington next week. COURT: Employee contribution law upheld Continued From Page 1Ameans even more busi-nesses will locate and grow in our state. Scott argued it was unfair that Floridas pub-lic employees didnt con-tribute because workers in most other states and the private sector are required to help pay for their pen-sions if they still have that benefit. The public employees contributions, though, were not used to strengthen the Florida Retirement System, already one of the nations strongest pension plans. Instead, they reduced con-tributions made by state and local government employers. Balancing the state budget on the backs of middle-class working families is the wrong approach, teachers union president Andy Ford said in a statement. A ruling against the contribution law would have created a nearly $2 billion budget gap for state and local governments because they then would have had to return the employee contributions. We still believe that a promise is a promise, Ford said. We are more deter-mined than ever to change the face of the Florida Legislature. The next elec-tions in 2014 can turn this decision around. Although Democrats, who are closely allied with the unions, picked up a few seats in the Legislature last year, Republicans continue to hold large majorities in both chambers. The changes made to the Florida Retirement System reflect the Legislatures efforts to maintain a sound retirement system for our hardworking state and local government employ-ees as well as the reality that Florida taxpayers can no longer bear the full cost of this benefit, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville. A key legal issue was how to interpret a law passed in 1974 that declares the retirement rights of public employees are contractual in nature. That year, the Legislature, then led by Democrats, also eliminated employee contributions to the pension plan. The high court majority cited a 1981 Supreme Court opinion that said the law protected rights and benefits already earned but did not preclude the Legislature from altering benefits prospectively for future service. Justice Jorge Labarga wrote for the majority that the same principle applied to the new law that restored employee contributions, so it does not violate employ-ees contract rights nor take away property in the form of their pension ben-efits. The new law also doesnt violate collective bargain-ing rights guaranteed by the Florida Constitution for public and private employ-ees because it doesnt prohibit such negotia-tions between unions and employers, Labarga wrote. Although I understand the frustration of state employees, who have in effect taken a 3 percent pay cut in addition to years without cost-of-living adjustments, this case is not about the wisdom or fairness of the Legislatures decision, Justice Barbara Pariente wrote in a concur-ring opinion. Labarga and Pariente were joined by Chief Justice Ricky Polston and Justice Charles Canady, the high courts two most reliably conservative members. Countertenor star to perform tonight EPA gets earful at water hearing By TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressTAMPA About 150 protesters, many in neon-green T-shirts protesting slime in Floridas water-ways, showed up Thursday at a U.S. Environmental Protection meeting, con-cerned about nutrient pol-lution. The meeting where federal officials took only written statements from people was the first of two held this week. The second is on Friday and Web-based meetings are scheduled for Jan. 22-24. The EPA is accepting comment on proposals that set numerical limits on nutrients that come from such sources as fertilizer, animal waste and sewage effluent, which feed the toxic, slimy algae blooms. They can kill fish and make people sick. Many of the folks who turned up at Thursdays meeting said that the excess nutrients are fouling beaches, harm-ing wildlife and contami-nating drinking water. Environmentalists point to recent events as proof that nutrient pollution is a serious problem, including Sarasota Countys removal of 4.5 tons of dead fish from beaches after a red tide bloom and a drinking water plant in Lee County closed because of green slime. Environmental groups are urging the agency to adopt stricter pollution rules than the state.
OPINION Friday & Saturday, January 18 & 19, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Flood controls showing effects of age 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 Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman T hats what Andy Ford, president of the states largest teachers union, said Thursday in derision of the Florida Supreme Courts ruling to uphold 3 percent mandatory pension pay-ins for government workers. The promise to which Mr. Ford refers was made in 1974 by the state legisla-ture with the passage of Florida Statute 121.011(3)(d), under which most state workers were no longer required to con-tribute to their own pension funds through the Florida Retirement System. Moreover, the new law declared this arrangement to be contractual in nature, thereby affording it protection under the Contract Clause of both the state and federal constitutions. In 2011 state lawmakers, responding to a long-term fiscal crisis, changed course and began requiring a 3 percent pay-in by state workers. Last March a Tallahassee circuit court found the law unconstitutional, deeming it, among other things, a violation of workers contractual rights. The state high court had the last word Thursday. The court ruled that, yes, a contract is a contract a promise, a promise but said legislators hadnt broken their word in reconfiguring the FRS after all. It all comes down to a question of what was promised. The lower court contended that under the 1974 law, workers who entered the FRS could never be made to contribute to their own retirement. The Supreme Court disagreed, ruling the contract was only meant to ensure that money already earned under the law couldnt be taken away. A good lawyer could argue it both ways, and if you read the various pleadings and briefs, they did. But nowhere did any of those documents address the fiscal reality of current-day Florida. Everyone has had to cut back. Not just government workers, but all of us private sector folks whose taxes pay their salaries. Sorry, Mr. Ford, but were all in this together, and the sooner we realize it, the better.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.orgW hether its man-kind-assisted global warming, long-term cyclical weather pat-terns or just plain bad luck, we seem to be in for an era of superstorms on the order of Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, storms strong enough to overstress our precautions to prevent or miti-gate their damage. Its only a slight exaggeration to say that our infrastructure policy seems to consist of waiting for a bridge to collapse or a levee to fail before we get around to fixing it. If Congress is as sluggish as it was at coughing up the money to repair Sandys devastation in the most densely populated region of the country, even that may no longer be our policy. Thats why an Associated Press report, based on Freedom of Information Act requests, on the state of the nations flood-control levees makes for disturbing and given a few bad breaks with the weather potentially expensive reading. As of early this month, the Army Corps of Engineers was almost 60 percent of the way through inspect-ing and cataloging federally overseen levees, the maintenance of many of them being the responsibility of the municipalities they protect. This is the first-ever such inventory. Of the 1,451 flood barriers inspected and for which ratings were published, 326 were rated unaccept-able, 1,004 were minimally accept-able even though they had deficien-cies in need of correcting, and only 121 were deemed acceptable. The AP said that the hundreds of structures at risk of failing endan-gered people and property in 37 states, meaning that its hardly a problem confined to the better-publi-cized coastal regions. The biggest culprit, of course, is a lack of money to maintain the systems. After Katrina, California approved $5 billion in bonds to upgrade the financially strapped states flood-protection system, but the AP says the state still needs $12 billion to finish the job. Some smaller riverfront towns simply dont have the money to maintain the systems the Corps built for them. There are other factors as well, such as design flaws, shoddy con-struction, inadequate maintenance; worn-out pumping stations relying on rusted-out pipes to handle flood overflows; and allowing trees, bush-es and burrowing animals to take over vulnerable levees. And in some places the municipalities are complicit, allowing construc-tion on the levees and development on flood plains. With this current weather cycle, or, if you prefer, run of bad luck, were going to pay, one way or anoth-er. It would be a lot cheaper to begin paying for prevention now rather than pay for wholesale reconstruc-tion and relocation later. 4AOPINION Secret for a happy lifeW ant to know the secret for a happy life? Well, many experts out there have written books telling you how to do it. Many of them say theres one path to happiness, based on what they believe or understand of what hap-piness is. I think a lot of them have great ideas, that could help you build that happier life for your-self, but there probably isnt just one best way. Is it true that all roads lead to Rome? I dont think so. I dont think theres one pat, easy formula thats good for everybody. As far as I know, our human race has pondered and explored what makes a happy life, for as long as weve been on Earth. Common sense and folk wisdom have offered ideas for thousands of years. The science of psychology emerged more recently, and offers its own two cents to the body of beliefs about happiness. A few principles and ideas seem to have outlived the ravages of time, and are generally believed to have some seeds of truth. Research from the science of psychology adds some evidence that seem to sup-port that common sense and folk wisdom. It seems that theres not just one way to a happy life. Here are some ideas that seem to be accepted as tried and true. You may find some of them helpful: It doesnt matter who you are, or what youve got to work with. Anyone can make his or her own life happier. Happiness means something different to each of us. One mans cake is another mans poi-son. Whats do you think makes a happy life? Take some time to make a list of things that are most important to you. That list helps you find your purpose, and helps give your life meaning. Your life and time are two of the most valuable things youve got. What else is very important for you to have, to do with your life and time, and to become? This list can help give your life your own direction to pursue. Dream big. Remember when you were a child, and wanted to be a fire-man or an astronaut? Dont be afraid to dream about what you want out of life. Wanting it, see-ing it or visualizing it motivates and guides you towards that dream. Were choice makers. Its built into us. Make a decision to make your life the best it can be, the life you want it to be. What are your strengths, capabilities, talents, and skills? Whats unique and special about you? What are your special skills, talents, interests, knowledge, and characteristics that you have to work with? What do you love doing? What are you good at doing? Take care of yourself. Build your health and fitness, by making your meals healthier, and including significant physical activities in your days. Health and fitness lay the groundwork for a happy life. Attitude is so important. Research tells us that your thoughts influence your feelings, and that optimists live years lon-ger, on the average, than pessimists. Look for the good side of everything. Expect success, not fail-ure. But dont be afraid to make mistakes. Learning from our mistakes is a proven way to grow and to build better lives for our-selves. When you search for it, every cloud really does have a silver lining. Believe in something. Try to do whats right. The Serenity Prayer advises us to have the courage to change the things we can change, the patience to accept and adapt to the things we cant change, and the wisdom to know the dif-ference. Build that happier life for yourself, and it will also help bring more hap-piness to those close to you. Theyre worth it, and youre worth it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:I would like to start by saying I, like most of the rest of Lake Citians, enjoy my guns. Right now however, there is a lot of finger-pointing as to who or what is to blame for gun violence. Video games are an easy target because most that blame them have never played them. If a child believes that you can shoot some-one and they will automatically respawn, then I believe that the parents have dropped the ball and the kid needs more help than just no video games. Gun ownership and video games are a lot alike in the sense that they both require common sense and responsibility, both by the parent and the child. Children need mod-eration and direction in all aspects of life. More focus should be put on mental health rather than those dern video games.

CHS Robotics Team Ex-Lt. Gov. Kottkamp leaves as CEO of health drink firmBy BRENDAN FARRINGTONAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Former Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp has left his position as CEO of a health drink company that so far isnt fulfill-ing commitments to create jobs after taking a $5 million grant from Lee County. The company, Bonita Springs-based VR Laboratories, accepted a $5 million eco-nomic incentive grant from Lee County with the promise of creating 40 full time jobs by the end of 2012 and 208 jobs by the end of 2016. But the money is nearly gone, few jobs have been created and the bottling plant that the company said it would open is in limbo. The company has blamed the delay on a dispute with a contractor and the county has given it a one-year extension to keep its promises. I decided to leave VR Laboratories last month. I am focusing my career on the law and the legislative process, Kottkamp said in an email to The Associated Press Wednesday night. I wish VR well. Their success will be good for the community. Kottkamp served under then-Governor Charlie Crist from 2007 to 2011. He sought the Republican nomination for attorney general in 2010. Kottkamp took the position with VR Laboratories in late 2011, after it had received the grant. His salary was $240,000 a year, according to documents the com-pany submitted to Lee County officials. He was one of nine full-time employees the company hired after receiving the grant, according to a document VR Laboratories submitted to the county. Mr. Kottkamp is a very talented person. The VR Labs team will miss him, but under-stands his desire to accept another opportu-nity, said Kay Gow, who runs the company with her husband, Robert Gow. The company sells a dozen health drinks under the V!ah name brand; the company says its products help users with issues such as stomach acid, sleep problems, stress, lack of energy and more. The active ingredients listed on the products include a green tea extract and other botanical extracts. They are described as dietary supplements and their claims have not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. While numerous other companies sell similar products with the same ingredients, the company claims it has discovered a new way of extracting the health benefits from plants that makes them more effective.
P aul talked to the Corinthians about his own personal situation. He has previously spo-ken to them about how God has comforted him even though he is and has endured a lot of afflictions. In a statement of optimism he says, Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16). Another way of saying what Paul said is, Even though we are getting older, we are getting renovated. With each January, we begin a new year. If we were alive last January, then we are one year older this January. When we were younger, we did not think about decaying with each passing year. However, every senior citizen realizes that the body parts do not function this year like they did last year. They are beginning to decay or wear out; but what about our inner body? We are not taking about our physical heart, lungs, eyes, legs or back. We are talking about our soul. We are talking about our mind and attitude concern-ing our eternal weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17). We are not talking about the temporal things, but the things which are not seen that are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18). As we get older, how much time do we think about going to heaven? Does it excite us that we are one more year closer to going to heaven? Does it renovate or energize our disposition when we think about being one year closer to being with God for eternity? When we feel all those aches and pains, do we think about that one day when we are with the Lord we will not have those physical problems? Thinking about heaven and being with God and all the faith-ful from all generations should inspire us to live more for God today than we did last year. It should help us to keep in per-spective that all the problems that we go through in this life are really only momentary, light afflictions as compared to an eternal weight of glory. This contrast by Paul really shows us how we should feel about all of our problems in this world. Really and truly they are only momentary. When we place our focus upon the things which we can see, then we tend to see all the nega-tive things in the world. We see all the disappointments. We see all the failures. But, if we will put our focus on the things which we cannot see then life becomes more enjoy-able, or to say the least, much more tolerable. If we will focus more on going to heaven, life becomes less dif-ficult. If we will focus on loving the people around us, the more relationships we will have. If we will focus on helping other people go to heaven, then we will have a life full of purpose. We will have a job that will never be completed; a mission that never comes to an end. So, what will be our focus this next year? That we are one year older and we are one year closer to dying or decaying? Or, will we be renovated or renewed because we realize that we are one year closer to reaching our goal of going to heaven and being with God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the faithful like Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, the apostles, as well as the faithful brethren who were in Corinth, for all eternity? Lets focus on being renovated. FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, January 18 & 19, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V We must love one another Decaying but being renovatedI suppose in this past year I have heard the word hate used more than any other period of time I can remember. Many times it comes from the lips of those who professed Christianity. Not only is it used toward sin or actions, it is used toward people. Nowhere in Gods word are we ever given the right to hate one another. However, over 20 times in the New Testament we are told to love one another. The first time we are told to love one another was spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ on His last night on earth; before the cross. He said, A new com-mandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another (John 13:34 NKJ). He said as I have loved you. How did He love us? He loved us enough to give His life on the cross of Calvary for us, even when we were unlovable. Now dont misunderstand me. He never loved sin; but He loved the sinner. In John 13:35 (NKJ) Jesus said: By this all will know that you are My dis-ciples, if you have love for one another. There are several Greek words for love and they are all action words; that means even if the word is not used, love should be felt. Even if we dis-agree with the way some people live, if we disagree with their beliefs, we must do so in love; and if we are children of God, we must disagree in love. The most carnal church in the Bible was the Church at Corinth. Paul pleaded with them to all speak the same thing (I Cor. 1:10). Chapter one tells of their division and why. Chapters 12 and 14 tell of the other seri-ous disagreement that they had over spiritual gifts. Chapter 13 is placed between 12 and 14 for a good reason. It is known as the Great Love Chapter in the Bible. Today the word love is tossed around all too freely. I wonder if many of the people who use it really know what it means to love. Paul says youve got to love one another. If we dont have love, then we cant be a witness for God. He (Paul) says if one has all the ability to speak with all tongues, and though one has great gifts of discernment and great knowledge and great faith, even if one gives all he owns to the poor and gives his life, without love there is no profit (paraphrased). He goes on to say everything else will pass away but love will remain. We who are Christs must love one another. Just before going to the cross, Jesus made an emphatic state-ment in John 14:6: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Those of us who enter His way must have love in our hearts for the brethren. Galatians 4:13 says: For you, brethren, have been called to liberty: only do not use liberty as opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one anoth-er. Hebrews 10:24 says: And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works. Q Hugh Sherrill is an ordained minister and Bible teacher at Eastside Baptist Church.

LAKE CITY REPORTER FAITH & VALUES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 18 & 19, 2013 7A7AReligionC ornelia Corrie ten Boom, sur-vived the holo-caust of World War II. She witnessed many atrocities against her people (Jews) as well as her own family. Her sister has been raped and killed by a German officer who was a prison guard where they were. The war ended, Corrie began a ministry, writing and sharing her story. While speaking one Sunday, she saw the guard who had taken so much pleasure in their pain sit-ting in the audience. She immediately recognized him and the feelings and memories immediately came back. Denial of the problem would not help. She could not ignore him nor her feelings. He came up to meet her, and with tears and deep remorse, he began to beg for her forgiveness. As the story goes, she forgave him. He still had to live with the memories, and sounds of screams from his victims. They had both done all they could do. Forgiveness does not just help the offender, it especially helps the victim. To be able to go on with life, unchained, unbur-dened and able to release the poison of the past, and begin healing. Corrie understood that bitterness and hate could destroy her by giving the devil a foothold. Bitterness is the sour brackish stagnant water of life gone bad. It gradu-ally becomes the center of a persons life and attitude the controlling factor in dealing with life. It eventually will affect all other aspects of life, and relationships. Every con-versation will trail back to the hurt and pain, being constantly relived. Pills or alcohol simply serve to dull the problem for a period of time. It is visible in outward actions, words, and expressions, and is always felt in the heart. We will not trivialize this problem, because it is trivial. This is a big deal! The suggestions made in this series are offered to help in the struggle of many to deal with the past. Paul says, get rid of all bitterness, this includes the blood-kin of bitter-ness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of (hate). The critical question is, how? So we begin our re-study of an old problem, born in the heart of Satan. Time alone will not heal, it will take time plus something else. When we lived in Ireland, we had coal fire in the fireplace for heat-ing the room. We would build a fire and then in the evening, dad would put bits of coal and coal dust on the fire. This seemed to smother the fire, but it didnt. During the night, this formed a shell, which held in the fire and the heat. In the morning, we would just poke it and the red-hot coals would appear. All we had to do is add more coal. It saved time on a cold morning. We would continue this for several days before cleaning it out and begin-ning again. This simply illustrates what happens when we try and ignore bitterness and even worse deny or justify our problems, which lie hidden until poked and the fires again flame up and we re-live it all again. Bitterness doesnt go away on its own, you have to realize you have a problem and take definitive action. Time alone wont do it. We must accept that we have a problem, and seek a real answer to heal. Next time we will begin to look at the doorway to healing ... forgiveness.Remembering that we knowN o doubt you have often heard the old saying: What he/she doesnt know wont hurt them. This vote in favor of ignorance was probably first spoken by someone who was either hop-ing to avoid conflict or had been devastated by news they wish could be erased from memory. Either way, I have to disagree. It seems the older I get, the more convinced I am that those things we dont know definitely do hurt. In fact, they often find a way to nearly beat us to death. Johns record of Jesus conversation with the Samaritan woman provides a great example of what I mean: So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, Will you give me a drink? The Samaritan woman said to him, You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink? Jesus answered her, If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water. John 4:5-10 Dont miss Jesus first three words in response: If you knew ... What was it she didnt know? We discovered last week that she was all too aware of the prejudice between the Jews and Samaritans. It is also likely that she was aware of the way oth-ers looked down on her since she chose the hottest part of the day to collect water for her daily household needs. Indeed, it seems she was only too aware of her own shortcomings, past mistakes, and failures. What she didnt know was how to relieve these heavy burdens she contin-ued to carry nor did she know that the One who could take those burdens stood right in front of her. There are people all around us who dont know this same truth. Often, those who know the One who will take our burdens away decide to carry them on their own anyway. Recently, I saw one of those people in the mirror. For a lengthy season, a difficult family situation had me gripped, and a struggle of this kind can make it pretty easy to forget the gift of God. Through a series of events, no doubt orchestrated by God, I recently had one of those well encounters and clearly heard Him remind me: If you knew Indeed, I had forgotten His offer of living water and traded it instead for a stagnant repeti-tion of half-truths. What we dont know and what we have for-gotten, definitely can hurt, and rob us of the peace and joy God intends. It is so important that we know because every heart matters.

Public schoolBible classes problematicBy WILL WEISSERTAssociated PressAUSTIN, Texas Some 60 public school districts across Texas offer courses on the Bible, but at least a third arent meeting state requirements to be unbi-ased and academically and legally sound, a study released Wednesday con-cluded. Written by Mark Chancey, a professor of Religious Studies at Southern Methodist University, the study found that many dis-tricts courses favor conser-vative Protestant interpreta-tions of the Bible. Many also present problematic treatment of Judaism while promoting pseudo-scholar-ship, particularly regarding science and American his-tory. At a basic level, students are often being taught to experience Judaism only through Christian eyes, said Chancey, who complet-ed the study for the Texas Freedom Network, which monitors the State Board of Education from a progres-sive perspective. He said no courses in Texas were found to be favoring Jewish, Roman Catholic or mainstream Protestant views only those held by conservative Protestants. Statewide, 57 districts and three charter schools offered elective courses on the Bible during the 2011-12 school year. Chancey listed 11 of them as having the most successful class-es, but concluded that 20 had the most problematic courses. The total overall number of districts offering Bible classes is more than double the 25 districts that taught them during the 2005-06 school year. But Chancey further found that of the 25 that taught them back then, just nine districts still offered Bible classes last school year.
By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Most people would con sider it a dream to travel and work at their lifes love performing on stage. Con OShea-Creal is no different, and for the past year he has been living his dream by performing on stage in the Mary Poppins musical production. The musical will be per formed at the Times-Union Centers Moran Theater, 300 Water St., Jacksonville, from Tuesday through Sunday, Jan. 27. Creal, 26, is playing the role of Bert. Creal has been in the show since February 2011 and took over the role of Bert in September. Weve pretty much been in a different city every week, he said. By the end of this, well play 48 cities in 30 states. Weve been in Florida for the last month, and were headed north again. Well end in Anchorage, Alaska, in June. Creal, who studied musi cal theater in college, has been acting professionally for about four years. He said his role as Bert is the biggest in his career thus far. Creal became interested in performing when he was 7 years old and tap danced. He said he played sports, as well, but the tap dancing stuck with him. Playing the role of Bert is definitely the biggest opportunity that Ive been given, by far, he said. The show is so fun to do, and whats fun about Bert is that he actually gets to talk to the audience at times. Its unlike anything that Ive done before. Its real ly fun to get the feedback from the audience every night. Creal said the cast has developed chemistry through its years of per forming together and that has contributed to the pro ductions success. This is a great group of people, Creal said. This cast really does a good job of just coming into the the ater and giving the best theyve got for that day, and we really have a good time up there. You cant imagine traveling every week and staying in hotels and it definitely makes a huge difference when everybody believes in what were doing and really give what theyve got. Its really a treat to do every night. Creal, a University of Oklahoma graduate, grew up in Lincoln, Neb. He said, the ensemble normally per forms eight times a week, which adds to the groups chemistry. Thats the other fun part of the road, every so often some people are leaving the show and new people are coming in, he said. Youre constantly having to accept new people into the flock and get them acquainted and really set the standard for how we connect ourselves out here on the road. Creal said he was a Mary Poppins fan while growing up, and he vividly remem bered his grandmother bringing the film over to his familys house to watch. A Step in Time was always a favorite number to watch in that film, and I think its part of the magic that belonged to the show the first movie to have animation with live action, he said. It was pretty ground-breaking at the time and fun for kids to watch. However, Creal said this stage production of Mary Poppins has something for adults, as well. I think a lot of people when they see Mary Poppins coming to town, they may think that its a kids show or frivolous entertainment for a kid, Creal said. ... (B)ut the show asks really perti nent questions about fam ily, life and whats really important. From staff reports The deeds of the legendary nanny, Mary Poppins, have been transferred from the silver screen and will be a musical pro duction appearing in Jacksonville from Tuesday through Jan. 27.

Falcons double up By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comLake City Middle School soccer doubled up on conference champi-onships with a sweep of Suwannee Middle School at Columbia High Stadium on Thursday. Lake Citys boys polished off a perfect season with a 7-0 win, while the Lady Falcons went into the final minute before pulling off a 2-1 victory. Both teams had the best regular-season records and earned the right to host the championship games. After a scoreless 12 minutes, Lake Citys Hunter Houston had a pair of goals in just over a minute. Brock Edge assisted on the first goal and Joseph Beach on the second. Lake City took the 2-0 lead into halftime. The second-half scoring began in the first minute. Chase Erickson centered a ball from the right side and Edge drilled it off the crossbar. Trent Morrison was there to put in the rebound. In the 37th minute, Houston intercepted a goal kick and punched it in to complete a hat trick. Morrison made his own hat trick with two goals less than two minutes apart at 13:50 and 12:29. Edge capped the scoring with a penalty kick in the 49th minute. The Falcons had 20 shots on goal, while Suwannee had one. In the girls game, Suwannee got on the board first with a goal by Savannah Jackson shortly after the first-half water break. Lake Citys Ashley Nobles answered with a run down the left side. She dribbled past two defenders and beat the keeper on the right side. The game stayed tied until the final minute when Nobles was taken down in the box and Lake City was awarded a penalty kick. Ashton Lee was called in to take the kick and drilled it home.

Tigers honor best BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterDallon Washington (left) and Will Bowen were named the junior varsity MVPs. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAn 11-2 season that saw Columbia High finish as District 3-6A champions deserved a closing ceremo-ny and the Tigers got one on Thursday. Columbias football program welcomed in Larry Vettel, host of the Larry Vettel show to speak with the team about what it meant to be a Tiger. Vettel divided being a Tiger up into an acronym with Tigers standing for teamwork, improvement, goals, enthusiasm, resil-ience and success. Vettel told the audience it is up to them to define success. A drug dealer may make more money than a school teacher who inspires 30 stu-dents to be better, Vettel said. You tell me which one is more successful. Vettels speech led into honoring two teams that had a lot of success this season with the 11-2 var-sity and 6-2 junior varsity squads. For the junior varsity Dallon Washington and Will Bowen took home the top honors as Offensive and Defensive MVPs. Other junior varsity award winners were: Dustin Carwile, Unsung Hero; Daylon Sheppard, Unsung Hero; Carwile, Academic Award; Jacob Strickland, Academic Award; Tim Dotson, Academic Award; and Nathan Taylor, Coaches Award. Varsity head coach Brian Allen led into the varsity portion of the awards by thanking the coaching staff and family for the time they put in behind the scenes. This coaching staff is like a family, Allen said. A lot of them dont get recog-nition or their names in the paper as much, but its an honor to have these guys beside me. Allen also spoke of the honor it was to have four players named to the all-state team this season in Class 6A. Taking home the top awards for the varsity were Ronald Timmons and Felix Woods. Timmons was named the Offensive MVP, while Woods took home the honor for the defense. Offensive coordinator Mitch Shoup introduced Timmons by announcing the numbers he had during a record-breaking year. Timmons rushed for 1,800 yards the most in Tigers history scored 22 touchdowns and averaged 140 yards per game. Allen closed the ceremony with a speech that brought the head coach to tears when talking about Woods. This kid leads by example and he reminds me so much of me that its crazy, Allen said. He doesnt always get all the accolades, but I can guarantee that he will be successful. Zedrick Woods took home the games third phase MVP by capturing the Special Teams Award. Other award winners for the varsity were: Brayden Thomas, Academic Award; Caleb Carswell, Academic Award; Charles Combs, Comeback Player of the Year; Roger Cray, Newcomer of the Year; Lonnie Underwood, Newcomer of the Year; Laremy Tunsil, Offensive Line Award; Javere Smith, Defensive Line Award; Nate Ayers, Wide Receiver Award; Terry Calloway, Linebacker Award; Darren Burch, Running Back Award; Trey Marshall, Defensive Back Award; Deonte Crumitie, Coaches Award; Brett Newcomb, Coaches Award; Thomas Holmes, Coaches Award; Drew Clark, Unsung Hero; Shaq Johnson, Unsung Hero; Tunsil, Captains Award; Jayce Barber, Captains Award; Woods, Captains Award; Rakeem Battle, Captains Award; Blake Kuykendall, Jim Register Award; and Braxton Stockton, Jim Register Award.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 18 & 19, 2013 3B3BNASCAR Back in the early 1970s,one of Georgias tough-as-nails short track drivers was leading arace on a north Georgia bullring when a rawrookie wrecked him out of a sure win. The kid felt so bad about the crash,which caused lingering hard feelings between the twodrivers families,that he abandoned for a timehis plans to become a race driver. It wasnt until a year later that the boy took the wheel again.The second time around,thingswent much smoother. The veteran driver continued to race the short tracks for decades,and actually became afan of the youngster who once robbed him of avictory. That young drivers name:Bill Elliott.The veteran was Luther Carter,who died Jan.4 at75 of cancer. A few years back,Elliott sought out Carter and told him how sorry he was about that wreckthose many years ago. I wanted to quit that night,Elliott said.I really felt bad about that. Carter was deeply moved by the gesture.It meant a lot to me for a man of his stature to do something like that,Carter said at thattime.Mark Carter,Luthers son,said his father,a bulldozer operator and grading companyowner by trade who raced cars numbered 3throughout his career,had a lot in common withthe late Dale Earnhardt when it came to hisdriving style. He wouldnt put up with much,and he wasnt afraid to stand up for what he thought was right,Mark Carter said,adding that Carterchose that number because he was a fan ofJunior Johnson,who raced a No.3 back in theday.He told me when I started racing that ifyou ever start taking abuse youll have to take it for the rest of your life.And you had to betough back when he raced. But he also spent a lot of his time riding kids in his race car,and he gave away most of histrophies. NOTEBOOK Gordon, Bowyer mum on partyAfter their high-profile run-in at Phoenix International Raceway last fall,Jeff Gordon andClint Bowyer just cant seem to get away fromeach other.A week after the Phoenix incident,one that saw Gordon fined and placed onNASCAR probation for intentionally wreckingBowyer,the two raced for the win withoutissues at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Then they ended up at the same New Years party on a yacht owned Sean P.DiddyCombs,the wealthy rapper and music executive. During their media sessions at Daytona testing,both were asked about the party but nei-ther offered much insight into what transpiredor whether there are issues still to be resolved. The question is how [Bowyer] got on the yacht,Gordon said with a smile.That needs tobe the real question We were just hanging out having a good time and on walks Bowyer and [Kevin] Harvickand a couple other folks It was a great NewYears.I enjoyed myself very much. Said Bowyer:Im pretty sure [Gordon] was on there.It was pretty late.Put it that way. Pressed on the issue,Bowyer indicated he was growing tired of the subject. Who cares? Really,who cares?he said.Waltrip aims for Daytona 500Two-time Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip plans to come out of semi-retirementand try to qualify the No.30 Swan RacingToyota for the Daytona 500. Were looking forward to Daytona,Waltrip said.Its my favorite time of the year everyyear,to come down here and get to participatein the greatest race in the world,in my opinion.To have won it before just makes coming backthat much more special.This year is going tobe particularly cool for me because its goingto be basically a reunion of when we won a fewof these things. In joining the relatively new Swan team, Waltrip will be reunited with crew chiefTonyEury Jr.and competition director Steve Hmiel,both of whom worked with him when he drovefor Dale Earnhardt Inc. Its just an amazing team that theyve started,and Im hoping that my driving the car canhelp us get sponsors and can help them jump-start what is going to be a very exciting year forthe Swan Racing team,Waltrip said.He addedthat he felt it was a bad idea for his own teamto prepare a fourth car for him given the workits taking to get the teams three regular carsprepared. He said hes fairly confident he can make the starting field in the car normally driven byDavid Stremme. [Stremme] had a lot to do with the direction and the build of the car that he came here andmade the race with a year ago,and his handsare all over the cars that I will be driving thisyear,Waltrip said.Plus,Tony [Eury] Jr.s confi-dence. We rode down [to Daytona] together and talked about some of the fun times weve had inthe past,but mainly focused on what weregoing to have in 2013 when we get back here ina couple of weeks. NUMERICALLYSPEAKING Drivers expected tocompete in next months Sprint Unlimited,for-merly known as the BudweiserShootout,at DaytonaInternational Speedway Nationwide Series racesin 2012 in which Morgan Shepherd failed to qual-ify,the most of any driver Nationwide Series driverswho won the most recent race they entered (MarcosAmbrose,Matt Kenseth,KevinHarvick,Carl Edwards andRegan Smith) Laps regained during SprintCup races in 2012 by David Gilliland,Bobby Labonte,Ryan Newman and David Ragan,tops among all drivers10 22 9 5 By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick By RICK MINTER / Universal Uclick With three days of restrictor-plate-track testing at DaytonaInternational Speedway behind them,NASCARs Sprint Cup Series teamsand drivers now head to Charlotte MotorSpeedway this week for another round oftesting of the Generation 6 race cars thatwill make their competitive debuts in nextmonths Daytona 500. The Daytona test seemed to show that the superspeedway versions of the cars dontwork as well in the two-car pushing tandemsthat dominated racing at Daytona andTalladega Superspeedway in recent years.The bodies arent well suited for pushing,asevidenced by a multi-car crash on Friday atDaytona that damaged 12 cars and sent sev-eral teams headed home early as they hadno backup cars prepared. That incident also brought to light just how much work remains to be done to havefleets of race cars ready for the early monthsof the 2013 season.With the radical changesto the cars since last year,teams are justnow getting some of the key NASCAR-issuedparts like hoods and trunk lids to use onthose cars. With NASCARs encouragement,teams tried drafting at Daytona on Friday,and it wasntlong before a big lesson was learned.DaleEarnhardt Jr.in his Chevy and MarcosAmbrose in his Ford were near the front of thepack when Earnhardt tried to give Ambrose ashove to see if the tactic of the recent pastwould work with the 2013 Generation 6 cars,so named because its the sixth different carthat has run in NASCAR,dating back to thestrictly stock vehicles that were used when thesport was founded back in 1948. I was just going to give [Ambrose] a push down the back straightaway and see if hecould get the lead,Earnhardt explained.Iwas trying to eventually get the lead myself.We got off the back straightaway and werejust kind of pushing him along there and ourcars sort of just didnt match up very well.Igot him hooked into the fence. Earnhardt said that earlier hed pushed Martin Truex Jr.s Toyota and had goodresults. The Fords,he said,are different,which is not surprising given that one of the keyaspects of the Generation 6 cars is that eachmanufacturers car is unique and designed tomore closely resemble the passenger car ver-sions of the vehicles. The roll bar of the front of my car is just at the right place where [Ambroses] car sitsright up on top of that,Earnhardt said.Isort of had him going down the backstraightaway like a forklift. Earnhardt also said the Chevy front end isnt the best for pushing. Our bumpers on the Chevys have a little bit of a point,he said.It makes it a little bitof a challenge to get into guys and kind ofhelp them.We definitely werent doing thatin the corner at all because it was prettyhairy trying to do it on the straightaways. Earnhardts Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon said push drafting is amuch riskier proposition,especially now thatthe superspeedway cars have less downforce,which means theyre harder to control insome circumstances. The cars drive pretty well,Gordon said. You cant push,which I think is a good thing. The bad thing is,you can still get to the guys bumper,but the cars just dont line upvery well.You really just shouldnt even bedoing it.Unfortunately,that is kind of thatlast little bit of momentum that you need tosometimes make the pass or make your lanemove. So,its something that is going to have to be dealt with very carefully.You are going tohave to be cautious when you do it and do itwith the right guys,but most of the timeyoure going to need to stay away from it. Carl Edwards,looking to put a miserable 2012 season behind him,said hes anxious tostart racing with the new package,especiallythe reduction in downforce. The cars are stuck less,and they are looser,he said.That is good for racing.It isgood for the fans.It will make it more excit-ing and make pit strategy come into play. If you put [fresh] tires on you will be able to go faster.I think all of that is good.This isgoing to be a heck of a race.I like that thecars were sliding around and hard to drive.It will make it a fun race. For many at the Daytona test,the most immediate concern was the lack of inventoryof body parts like hoods and trunk lids inrace shops with the start of the season just alittle over a month away. The issue is one being faced by teams large and small. Donnie Wingo,crew chief of the Wood Brothers No.21 Ford driven by TrevorBayne,said his team,which only plans torace a partial schedule,worked up to the last minute to get its Daytona test car finished.And he said there was still some work to bedone on the downforce car it plans to test atCharlotte this week. Jimmie Johnson said the situation is basically the same over at the giant HendrickMotorsports complex. Generally speaking,we just dont have any cars,he said.This is our only speedwaycar for the 48 car.We want to have that as abackup when we come back.We still need togo home and build our 500 car.We just donthave the inventory. I mean we have four deck lids for our cars that are legal and they are on the fourHendrick cars that are here now.Were play-ing a big game of catch-up right now. NASCAR vice president Robin Pemberton addressed the parts shortage during a pressconference at Daytona. Its just a fact that theres a lack of inventory,he said,adding that hes confident theparts soon will be flowing through the sup-ply pipeline.The only thing that is short ishoods from the manufacturers and deck lidsthat come from our supplier. Were on a pretty organized schedule for delivery dates on those.There are over 100deck lids out there in service right now. Well be on a shipping schedule that starts next Friday,50 every Friday,so weshould be pretty well handled by the time wehead off to Vegas [for the third points-payingrace of the season on March 10]. Pemberton said that if necessary,teams could swap those parts from one car to thenext among their fleets.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 18-19, 2013 DEAR ABBY: My elderly uncle and aunt have a son-in-law who -to put it mildly -spins tall tales. Tom has been EVERYwhere, done EVERYthing and insists on telling anyone who will lis-ten all about it. He speaks many languages fluently (until someone addresses him in one of them) and has had countless adven-tures in various countries, although he cant locate them on a map. My uncle and aunt have bought two cars for their financially unstable daugh-ter and this phony. Both times, Tom insisted on maintaining them himself (another of his legend-ary skills). Afterward, both cars required major repairs and eventually had to be scrapped. After Toms stint as a highly decorated Navy SEAL, he morphed into a genius at creating com-puter software, when he wasnt touring with a famous bluegrass band -the name of which he cant remember. I am concerned that my uncle and aunt are so awed by this man that they might one day allow him to manage their finances (there is no topic Tom is not an expert on) or let him fix the brakes on their vehicle. I think you know where Im heading. I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying, Tom, Yokohama is a city, not a country. And if youre real-ly best friends with Johnny Depp, why not invite him over so we can all meet him? Oh, and what youre passing off as Farsi is Pig Latin. Is there a way to tactfully intervene before something awful happens without upsetting any-one? -THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND DEAR ROYAL HIGHNESS: Yes, if you do it privately, and say you are speaking up only because you are worried about their welfare. Then explain why you think Toms sto-ries dont hold water and point out that if he should volunteer any financial advice to them they should first run it past an unbi-ased non-family member such as their banker, law-yer, CPA or pastor before making any investments. From your description, Tom appears to be a con man or compulsive liar. But whether your uncle and aunt choose to accept your input is up to them. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I work at home and use my com-puter. Everyone who lives here is over 35. My step-grandchildren visit regularly, and I have told the childrens mother that I have no parental restrictions on my comput-er. She assured me not to worry about it because she has reinforced the rules of responsible Internet usage with them and is confident her children wont break the rules. As far as I know, they havent. Today, one of my brothers-in-law visited and brought along his young teenage daughter. I let her play on the computer, and he caught her in a chat room with an older teen-age boy. Instead of blam-ing her, he attacked ME for being too permissive with children and comput-ers. Do you think it is my responsibility to protect his teenager on my com-puter? -JUST A GEEK IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR JUST A GEEK: No, I do not. I suspect that you were attacked because of displaced anger. His daughter deserved the scolding, however, because he could not (for whatever reason) scold her, he directed his anger at you instead. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My daughter was recently married. My niece -a tal-ented artist -hand-painted flowers on wine glasses for the dinner reception following the ceremony. They were intended to be keepsakes for each of the adult guests. The glasses turned out beautifully, and made each place setting extra special. I knew theyd be treasured by our family for years to come. At the end of the evening, I gathered four glass-es from our familys table, then glanced at the bridal table of eight -as some guests approached to offer thanks for a fabulous evening. When I turned around, the four glasses were gone. Not only had glasses disappeared from our table, but also from the head table and from my nieces (the artist). Those of us who had worked hardest on the wedding were left with nothing -and that includes the bride and groom. The following day, someone mentioned to me that they had seen certain guests leave with four to six glasses each. One woman even had her child, who was loaded down with glasses, make several trips to her car. Weve figured out who the culprits were: some out-of-towners who stayed at the home of one of the grooms relatives. I heard that the glassware covered the entire top of their dining room table. My question: Should we ask these people to return the glasses? Thanks for your input, Abby. -MOTHER OF THE BRIDE IN MESA, ARIZ. DEAR MOTHER: By all means ask -but there is no guarantee theyll be returned. People who take more than their share usu-ally feel an inflated sense of entitlement. Although their manners were atro-cious, please dont let this cause in-law problems before the marriage has even begun. Perhaps out of sympathy, the artist will be generous enough to craft another pair of goblets for the bride and groom. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am in a one-year relationship with a wonderful man who is divorced with two chil-dren. The kids and I get along great -or at least I thought we did. It turns out they are making up lies about me and telling their mother. My boyfriend and his ex have a strained relationship and fight about everything. I love his children, but I dont know how to handle this. What do you think I am doing wrong? -TELLING THE TRUTH IN DULUTH DEAR TELLING THE TRUTH: Youre not doing anything wrong. Either the kids are trying to cause a breakup with the idea their parents will reunite, or they are telling their mother things they think she wants to hear. Theres nothing you can do about it. Your boyfriend will have to clear the air with his for-mer spouse. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a woman who was raised in the South by a very proper mother. She told me that a man should never give a woman intimate gifts like lingerie. A friend and I have argued about whether this rule applies today. I still believe the practice is unacceptable, even if you are engaged. She thinks it is OK. Please settle this. -CONFUSED IN OREGON DEAR CONFUSED: Perhaps the two of you should agree to disagree on this one. Your mother is part of the hands off generation, and the logic was that knowing lingerie sizes was too intimate for couples who werent mar-ried. In todays world, how-ever, such logic would put companies like La Perla and Victorias Secret out of business. ** ** **Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

He didnt have to search very far, either. Muschamp promoted linebackers coach/special teams coordinator D.J. Durkin to the DC position Thursday, keeping some continuity during a hectic recruiting period. Durkin will continue to serve as linebacker coach. D.J. and I will run the defense, continuing the way that Dan and I did for the past two years, Muschamp said in a statement. Quinn accepted an offer to return to the NFL as Seattles defensive coor-dinator earlier Thursday, hours after Gus Bradley left to take the head-coaching job with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Quinn served as Floridas coordinator the past two seasons, working closely with Muschamp as the Gators ranked in the top 10 nationally in total defense. He previously worked as Seattles defen-sive line coach. Im happy for Dan and this opportunity, Muschamp said. I always encourage my staff, when opportunities arise, to take the next step in their career. Dans background is in the NFL, and this is a great chance to go back to a place hes familiar with. Muschamp plans to hire an assistant to fill out his coaching staff. Durkin spent the last three seasons in Gainesville, one of the few holdovers from for-mer coach Urban Meyers staff. Durkin began his coaching career as a graduate assistant under Meyer at Bowling Green in 2001 and later served stints as a defensive assistant at Notre Dame (2003-04), Bowling Green (2005-06) and Stanford (2007-09). He was a four-year starter at defensive end/line-backer at Bowling Green (1997-2000) and was a team captain as a junior and senior. Now, he becomes Floridas third defensive coordinator in the last four years. Charlie Strong left to become Louisvilles head coach following the 2009 season. Teryl Austin replaced him for one sea-son. Muschamp hired Quinn in 2011. Durkin takes over a Florida defense that is losing seven starters. Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, safety Matt Elam and linebacker Jelani Jenkins left school early to enter the NFL. Four seniors defensive tackle Omar Hunter, safety Josh Evans, linebacker Jon Bostic and defensive end Lerentee McCray also are moving on. But the Gators have plenty of talent on that side of the ball, with cor-nerbacks Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson returning along with defen-sive linemen Dominique Easley, Jonathan Bullard and Dante Fowler. Florida also has young linebackers Antonio Morrison, Michael Taylor and Neiron Ball.

Th e Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley as head coach. Jaguars hire Seahawks Bradley as head coachBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Seattle defensive coordina-tor Gus Bradley as head coach Thursday, the latest move in the teams rebuild-ing project. He joins general manager Dave Caldwell, who led the coaching search after being hired last week. It was just a matter of time before Gus Bradley became a head coach in the NFL, and the Jacksonville Jaguars are extremely for-tunate that Gus will be on our sidelines for many years to come, Caldwell said in a statement. Gus more than met every criteria we insist-ed on from our new head coach, and his intangibles and leadership abilities are exceptional. Gus is who the Jaguars need now and in the future. Bradley spent the last four seasons in Seattle, where his defense improved each of the last three years and finished in the top 10 in points and yards the last two. This season, the Seahawks ranked first in the NFL in points allowed (15.3), fourth in yards (306.2) and tied for fourth in takeaways (31). The Jaguars were 30th in the league in total defense in 2012. Owner Shad Khan and Dave Caldwell expect to win, and thats what I want-ed to hear, Bradley said. Thats why I am coming to Jacksonville to win a Super Bowl. Bradley will be introduced at a news conference Friday. He began his NFL coaching career with Tampa Bay as a defensive qual-ity control coach in 2006. He was the Buccaneers linebackers coach the next two seasons before going to Seattle. Bradley coached in college from 1990-2005, including two stints at his alma mater, North Dakota State, and four years at Fort Lewis College (1992-95). But his rise through the NFL ranks had him on sev-eral teams radar. He also interviewed for the head job in Philadelphia this week. Hes got a brilliant football mind, Seahawks coach Peter Carroll said this week. Hes got a way of reaching people and touching people and getting the best out of them, coaches and players alike. Hes got everything that youre looking for. The Jaguars interviewed defensive coordinator Mel Tucker, St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and Cincinnati Bengals offen-sive coordinator Jay Gruden before striking a deal with Bradley. Bradley replaces Mike Mularkey, who went 2-14 in his only season in Jacksonville. Mularkey failed to make the team any better in his first season. Khan fired general manager Gene Smith, the archi-tect of the roster the last four years, and charged Caldwell with turning around one of the leagues worst franchises. Caldwells first move was ousting Mularkey, saying the team needed a fresh start. Im looking for a cobuilder of our team, Caldwell said last week. I felt like it was an atmo-sphere of change. I felt like that to do that, youve got to have a fresh start across the board. Many believed Caldwell would target close friend and college roommate Greg Roman, San Franciscos offensive coordinator. Instead, Caldwell and Bradley will team up in hope of getting the Jaguars back to the playoffs for the first time since 2007. Jacksonville has missed the postseason 11 times in the last 13 years. The relationship between the general man-ager and the coach is vital, Khan said last week. It has to be a symbiotic relation-ship and they have to grow together and the coach has to be somebody that its very, very important to win and very, very important for Jacksonville. Bradley inherits a team with few playmakers on either side of the ball.
