Tommy Witt remembered fondlyBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comLeither Thomas Tommy Witt died Sunday after more than two years fighting chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 67. George Brannon can remember Witt as far back as 55 years ago when he was 5 years old. Witt was 7 years older than Brannon, and Brannon said Witt was like his older brother. He was probably the oldest and best longtime friend I have ever had, Brannon said. Witt was a great athlete and lettered in football, baseball and basketball at Columbia High School, Brannon said. Witt received a scholarship to play basketball at Lake City Community College before moving on to the University of Florida where he obtained a degree in journalism in 1969. Witt had a successful career as the vice president of Columbia County Bank, where he worked for 25 years. He was very good at anything he did, Brannon said. I cant tell you the impact that hes had on me. He will be missed.

This comes in response to Gov. Rick Scotts challenge to community and state colleges to develop a low-cost bacca-laureate program in a high-demand field. FGC President Chuck Hall said FGC will continue to explore the possibility of offer-ing a four-year program that falls under Scotts criteria. Florida Gateway College continues to explore the pos-sibility of joining Governor Scotts $10K challenge, he said.

And for many of them its not that expensive. Scott is paying less than $400 a year for family coverage. Thats the same amount that 107 out of 120 members in the Florida House are paying. Floridas 40 senators are also covered by the state but this month they started paying the same as rank-and-file state employees. Career service workers pay $50 a month for individual coverage and $180 a month for family coverage. Scott and lawmakers this spring will decide whether to extend health insurance to nearly 1 mil-lion Floridians as part of the federal health care overhaul. House Speaker Will Weatherford agreed there were inequities in what state officials are paying.Priest sentenced in sex abuse case FORT LAUDERDALE A retired Roman Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing dozens of boys for decades was sentenced to 15 years in prison Monday. Earlier this month, Father Neil Doherty plead-ed no contest in a deal that reduced the sex abuse charges from capital felo-nies to second-degree felo-nies. He will also have to register as a sex offender. The plea comes after several more alleged vic-tims came forward and were planning to testify in the case. Doherty, who maintains his innocence, is now 69, appears frail and struggles with health problems. His attorney, David Bogenschutz said he disputed the facts of the states case but declined to elaborate. Woman shoots, kills ex-boyfriend OCALA Marion County authorities say the woman who fatally shot her ex-boyfriend seen rid-ing on the hood of her car has not been charged. A sheriffs office statement says 36-year-old Lamark Tucker Sr. jumped on the car as his ex-girl-friend tried to leave her home Saturday night. Tucker held on for nearly ten miles and threatened to harm her. Authorities say the woman tried to stop for help and at one point fired once through the windshield, striking Tucker. He was taken to the hospital where he was pro-nounced dead. No arrests have been made, but authorities are asking witnesses to call detectives. The woman told officials that Tucker was her ex-boyfriend and their three children were not in the car at the time.8 men arrested in sex sting PLANT CITY Eight men have been arrested in connection with an under-age sex sting in Plant City. Police teamed up with the Polk County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in the under-cover operation. Officials told the Tampa Bay Times that officers posted online ads pretend-ing to be minors. The men would respond by text mes-sage or email and showed up on Saturday to a pre-arranged location. Thats when Plant City police offi-cers arrested the men. All eight men were booked into the Orient Road Jail. They face one felony count of traveling to meet a minor for sex after using a computer. Police say one man faces addi-tional charges for send-ing links to pornographic photos. Rapper Ross crashes Rolls after shots FORT LAUDERDALE P olice in South Florida say rapper Rick Ross crashed his Rolls Royce into a building after hearing shots fired nearby. Fort Lauderdale police say Ross and a female companion reported hearing multiple shots fired in their direction at around 5:00 a.m. Monday. Police say Ross lost control of the silver Rolls and crashed into an apartment building. Neither Ross nor his passenger was injured and police say it did not appear that any bullets struck the Rolls. The police report uses Rosss real name, William L. Roberts. Ross turned 37 years old Monday. Authorities say unknown suspects fled before police arrived. TV news footage showed a bullet hole in the window of a nearby restaurant.Randy Travis to enter drunken-driving plea SHERMAN, Texas A prosecutor says country music star Randy Travis is expected to enter a guilty plea in a drunken-driving case in North Texas. Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown said Monday that details of the plea agreement will be released following Travis court appear-ance Thursday in Sherman. Travis was naked when he was arrested following a single-vehicle accident Aug. 7 near Tioga, a city about 60 miles north of Dallas. Authorities have said his blood-alco-hol level was more than 0.15. The legal limit for driving is 0.08. Brown says Travis will plead guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving, which is punishable by up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine. The 53-year-old Travis still faces a retalia-tion charge for allegedly threatening officers.Taylor Swift talks sexier look, new tour NEW YORK Taylor Swift says you can expect some of her bolder choices of late from her music to her sexier image to be incorpo-rated in her upcoming tour.

FUGITIVES: Indiana couple arrested in Lake City Continued From Page 1A SHOOTING: Two killed Continued From Page 1A FGC: College plans to explore a $10,000 degree Continued From Page 1A WITT: Former bank vice president recalled fondly Continued From Page 1A STORY: Womens experience at party recounted Continued From Page 1A PREVENTION: How to reduce chances of robbery Continued From Page 1A Craig Strickland, public informa tion officer with LCPD, said lock the doors and make sure all the windows are properly secured. After dark, make sure there is sufficient lighting around the home, he said. Strickland said when theres a party and the homeowner knows there will be people entering and leaving throughout the night, its impractical to keep the door locked. However, he recommended lock any side doors so theres only one entrance. If its a planned party, theres always the option of calling the police depart ment to request an extra patrol in the area, Strickland said. Whenever you do have that many cars all together, its an opportunity, he said. People are vulnerable to robbery when they use an ATM at night. Strickland recommends getting money out during the daytime, and that if its necessary to get cash at night, use a drive-up ATM. He also said if you see a suspicious person near an ATM, call the police department. What is your safety worth? Find someplace where you can get money safely, he said. Derek Gilliam Terry Shiver, pastor at Christ Community Church, said Hagler gave a blow-by-blow account of the attempted robbery. After the women were done, they laid hands and prayed for peoples troubles. Shiver said his church believes in the power of prayer and that there is power in the name of the Lord. We dont have a how to get out of a robbery 101, but we teach that God is a good God, Shiver said. Buddy Meloy, pastor at New Christ Christian Fellowship, said that Sharron Ballance, the woman who had the gun inches from her head, spoke for about 10 minutes about how God protected them. Theres times when God watches over us, and protects us when we are in very dangerous situations, Meloy said. Im very happy that nobody was injured in this situation. After hearing the members of his church at the jewelry party testify to what they experienced, Meloy joked about that being real gun control. Robert Bass, pastor at First Baptist Church of Lake City, said the robbery was a legitimate situation in which the only protection that these ladies had is the Lord Jesus Christ. Although there are times we do have and carry self protection, our defense ultimately comes from the Lord Jesus himself, Bass said. God heard there prayers and awnsered it, sending a burglar fleeing. Bass said the real question is whether or not this guy finds salva tion in Jesus. Hagler said she hopes so, and that she doesnt harbor any ill feelings toward him. I would like to sit down face-toface and tell him that God loves him just like everybody else, she said. Brannon said they would go to all types of Gator sports events, and that he had a love, hate relationship with the team. He loved them, but couldnt stand to see them lose, he said. But what Witt was most proud of was what Brannon said were his prize possessions, his two daugh ters, Gigi and Patti. Gigi Witt Register said her father loved the Ichetucknee River, and that he owned a house next it. She said he would eat boiled peanuts and drink cold beer while spending time on the river. Register said that everybody liked him, and he loved his grandchil dren. She said he loved the Gators, and would sit around and talk about old football games from when they werent the team they are today. He could tell you something about a football game from 20 years ago, especially if it was a Gator game, she said. Brannon said that Witt was friends with everybody. I just cant reiterate how much I am going to miss him, he said. Funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the First United Methodist Church. cutting the quality of education stu dents receive at Florida Gateway College. Our goal is to make sure every student who graduates from FGC is properly prepared and can go on and have a successful career in whatever field they choose. Scott first issued the challenge in November, and made the announce ment at Miami Dades College North Campus on Monday while touring the college and learning about the $10,000 degrees the institution plans to offer. All 23 institutions in the Florida College System that offer baccalau reate degrees have announced they will explore Scotts higher education affordability challenge. Higher education is key to help ing our students succeed in the 21st century economy and to grow jobs in Florida, Scott said. It is impor tant our students can get an afford able education, and our state colleges have stepped up to the challenge to find innovative ways to provide a qual ity education at a great value. Our goal should be that students do not have to go into debt in order to obtain a degree and todays announce ment of nearly all of our state colleges meeting this challenge puts us closer to achieving that goal for our students and families. Williams wife, who was also in the truck, was unhurt, Cameron said. Cole then shot Michael Williams, who was about six feet from his brothers truck. He was also prepar ing to leave the cookout, Cameron said, but it is not clear if he was preparing to get in the truck with his brother. Williams was trans ported to an area hospi tal where he died Sunday night. The scene was cha otic after the shooting, Cameron said. They were all run ning around crazy when the deputy got there, Cameron said. Cole took the rifle back inside his home after the shooting, according to sheriffs reports, then waited under the carport for authorities to arrive. Reports say he admitted to deputies that he shot the men. Cameron said the stab bing victim did not suffer life-threatening wounds and is recovering. both will be extradited to Indiana for grand theft charges. The tip came from a citizen with personal knowledge of the two fugi tives, according to a media release from LCPD. The informant provided police with their location, type of vehicle and physical descriptions of both suspects. When officers Ivan Useche and Nikki Grunter knocked on the sus pects room at the Gateway Inn, Wimmer awnsered the door. He gave the name, William S. Russell, but then provided two different birth dates. Later his Indiana identification card was found in the motel. Wimmer faces additional charges for giving a false name to law enforce ment. Russell-Smith gave her real name and provided her identification card. The police department did war rant checks on both individuals, and found that active warrants for grand theft from Indiana. The police depart ment then ran the license plate on the U-Haul van the couple were driving, and found it had been stolen from Tennessee on Dec. 26. Both were then arrested. Wimmer was booked in lieu $35,000 bond and Russell-Smith in lieu of $30,000 bond. They were taken to Columbia County Detention Facility. Soldier has double-arm transplant By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer On Facebook, he describes himself as a wounded warrior ... very wounded. Brendan Marrocco was the first soldier to sur vive losing all four limbs in the Iraq War, and doc tors revealed Monday that hes received a double-arm transplant. Those new arms already move a little, he tweeted a month after the operation. Marrocco, a 26-year-old New Yorker, was injured by a roadside bomb in 2009. He had the transplant Dec. 18 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, his father said Monday. Alex Marrocco said his son does not want to talk with reporters until a news conference Tuesday at the hospital, but the younger Marrocco has repeatedly mentioned the transplant on Twitter and posted pho tos. Ohh yeah today has been one month since my surgery and they already move a little, Brendan Marrocco tweeted Jan. 18. Responding to a tweet from NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski, he wrote: dude I cant tell you how exciting this is for me. I feel like I finally get to start over. The infantryman also received bone marrow from the same dead donor who supplied his new arms. That novel approach is aimed at helping his body accept the new limbs with minimal medication to pre vent rejection. The military sponsors operations like these to help wounded troops. About 300 have lost arms or hands in Iraq or Afghanistan. Unlike a life-saving heart or liver transplant, limb transplants are aimed at improving quality of life, not extending it. Quality of life is a key concern for people missing arms and hands prosthetics for those limbs are not as advanced as those for feet and legs. He was the first quad amputee to survive, and there have been four others since then, Alex Marrocco said. The Marroccos want to thank the donors family for making a selfless decision ... making a difference in Brendans life, the father said. Brendan Marrocco has been in public many times. During a July 4 visit last year to the Sept. 11 Memorial with other dis abled soldiers, he said he had no regrets about his military service. ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE Army Sgt. Brendan Marrocco of Staten Island, N.Y., seen here last July 4 wearing a prosthetic arm, the first soldier to survive losing all four limbs in the Iraq war, has received a double-arm transplant in Baltimore. Scouts consider retreating from no-gays policy By DAVID CRARY AP National Writer NEW YORK The Boy Scouts of America may soon give sponsors of troops the authority to decide whether to accept gays as scouts and lead ers a potentially dramatic retreat from a nationwide no-gays policy that has provoked relentless pro tests. Under the change now being discussed, the dif ferent religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue either maintaining an exclusion of gays, as is now required of all units, or opening up their mem bership. Gay-rights activists were elated at the prospect of change, sensing another milestone to go along with recent advances for samesex marriage and the end of the ban on gays serving openly in the military. However, Southern Baptist leaders who consider homosexuality a sin were furious about the possible change and said its approval might encourage Southern Baptist churches to sup port other boys organiza tions instead of the BSA. Mondays announce ment of the possible change comes after years of protests. Sargeant lost all four limbs in blast in Iraq.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.orgI would hate to meet Hillary Clinton in a dark Senate cor-ridor, especially when she was on a tear about when she knew that the tragedy in Benghazi that killed four Americans had been carried out by an orga-nized terrorist group. The former first lady, U.S. senator, presidential candidate and soon-to-be formersecretary of state showed she is no one to mess with. Her former lawmaker colleagues wont soon forget her testimony. She put to rest the entire silly question about the difference between a protest gone awry and a planned attack. At least lets hope so. As she pointed out, there isnt any difference in this case. The four victims including the U.S. ambas-sador to Libya are just as dead, no matter who was responsible. Anything else is irrelevant and has been from the start of this debacle, notwithstanding United Nations Ambassador Susan Rices forced withdrawal from consideration to succeed Clinton. Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson found out the hard way that the official misstatements about who was responsible immediately following the attack were no longer a viable line of questioning. Clinton made no bones about her disdain for his questioning, dismissing it as politically motivated. The important, relevant questions are: How did U.S. intelligence fail to anticipate such a shootout at a base containing a CIA safe house, despite warnings? Why wasnt the request for additional security made before the attack fulfilled? How do we prevent such an attack from hap-pening again? The request apparently wasnt brought to Clintons attention. And although Congress did not fully fund the departments request to safeguard the nations diplomatic missions, money could have been transferred from other endeavors. The crux of this problem lies in a diplomatic culture that firmly believes too much protection inhib-its the ability to do the job, that a fortress mentality at our far-flung embassies is bad for our foreign poli-cy. In areas such as the Middle East, there is danger everywhere. Most diplomats posted to front-line assign-ments understand this perfectly. Recent history has taught us that some events are unavoidable. The Iran hostage crisis and the bomb-ings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania are good examples. But that doesnt mean we should tolerate scrimping on security to the point of irresponsibility or ignoring obvious appeals and warnings. That happened in the Benghazi affair, and that is where Clinton and her staff are vulnerable. To Clintons credit, she understands this and accepts respon-sibility. Its problematic whether Congress does. Clinton failed to outline whats needed. This may have been in def-erence to her successor, Sen. John Kerry, who faces confirmation and with whom she appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee after her Benghazi testimony in both houses. One thing seems clear. She controls a situation like this about as well as anyone might. If she has a weakness, it is an almost imperious attitude at times brought on by her confidence in her intellectual ability. Kerry will have to deal with what comes next in preventing more Benghazi incidents in a volatile region where local authorities often cant be trusted to protect foreign diplomats, particularly those repre-senting the U.S. Expanded Marine detachments are an obvious step, but rethinking private contract security al so should be a top priority in the aftermath of these failures. Beefing up the Bureau of Diplomatic Security is another option. Probably the best way to lessen the threat is to listen to those onsite and respond with common sense and prudent action. 4AOPINIONN ewsman Bill Moyers, who worked as an assistant to President Lyndon Johnson, shared memories in a column last year about how his old boss thought about our entitlement programs. It was under Johnson, who championed the Great Society in the 1960s, that a good portion of the runaway govern-ment spending we are try-ing to get under control today originated. Johnson signed into law Medicare, Medicaid, the War on Poverty programs and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Moyers recounted that for Johnson, Social Security and Medicare were about a lot more than economics. He recalls a time when the Johnson adminis-tration was supporting retroactive increases in Social Security payments. Moyers said he argued for the increases as economic stimulus. But Johnson called him and said: My inclination would be ... that it ought be retroactive as far back as you can get it ... because none of them ever get enough. That they are entitled to it. Thats an obligation of ours. Its just like your mother writing you and saying she wants $20, and I always sent mine $100 when she did. I always did it because I thought she was entitled to it. ... We do know that it affects the economy. But thats not the basis to go to the Hill, or the justifica-tion. Weve got to say that by God you cant treat grandma this way. Shes entitled to it and we prom-ised it to her. I dont think we could have a clearer picture of Johnsons muddled think-ing about his job and the role of government, which contributed so much to the problems we have today. Johnsons words sound so wonderfully compas-sionate. But lets get things in perspective. He saw no difference in his relationship and responsibilities toward his own mother, and send-ing her his own money, and his responsibilities as president of the United States and the relationship of government to citizens. There is a world of difference between the appropriate responsibility of parents toward their children and children toward their parents, and politicians deciding on how to spend someone elses money for someone elses children, parents or grandparents. Johnson didnt seem to grasp, or care, about the fact that family and gov-ernment are two entirely different social institutions that serve very different purposes. So the Johnson administration years marked not just the beginning of many huge government programs that we cant pay for today, but they also marked a major cul-tural change where gov-ernment began displac-ing family and personal responsibility. It is no accident that as the American welfare state grew, the American family collapsed. In 1960, 72 percent of American adults were married. By 2010, this was down to 51 percent. The change is most pronounced among two of todays largest Democratic Party con-stituencies: youths and blacks. In 1960, 45 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 were married compared to 9 percent today. In 1960, 61 percent of black adults were married, compared to 31 percent today. Means testing, targeted tax increases on the wealthy, raising the retirement age all pro-posed ways to keep Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid going as they are all simply grow the American welfare state, increase dependence of working Americans on government and other tax-payers, and displace fam-ily and traditional values with socialism. This is why Democratic leaders are not stressed out by the entitlements crisis facing us. More socialism in America is what they want. They are not bothered that slow growth and high unemployment go hand in hand with this socialism. Republicans wont succeed as an opposition party if they keep tiptoe-ing around the fact that facing America today is a crisis of vision and values. They need to stop selling the alternative to welfare as unpleasantness and spending cuts. They need to start selling that restored prosperity will only come with a rebirth of American freedom and the values that go with it.

HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY Q Historynet.com W hen Gov. Rick Scott announced last November he was challenging com-munity and state colleges to offer $10,000 bachelors degrees, we applauded the idea. We thought the proposal aimed at folks who wanted a degree that would actually help land them a job was a fine idea for all concerned. So we were pleased to learn Monday that Lake Citys own Florida Gateway College had agreed to explore ways to make it happen here. Before going any further, though, FGC president Chuck Hall said he wants to make sure he can offer a $10,000 baccalau-reate degree without lowering the quality of education at the school. A wise move.However, we would encourage Dr. Hall to move quickly to determine whether a $10,000 degree is feasible here. If so, its an offer we bet plenty of students are ready and willing to take him up on.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246ABy KYLE HIGHTOWERAssociated PressGAINESVILLE The pre-dawn traffic moved fast on Interstate 75 through Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park outside Gainesville. The highway had been closed for hours after thick fog combined with smoke from a nearby wildfire reduced visibility to near zero, but now it was clear. Until it wasnt. On both sides of the highway, some cars and trucks stopped as the returning fog and smoke quickly swallowed the night. Those behind them didnt. There were collisions. There were explosions. Eleven people died and two dozen were hurt in six crashes involv-ing 24 vehicles a year ago today in one of worst high-way tragedies in Florida history. In the months since, several survivors have served notice they plan to file neg-ligence lawsuits against the state and blame has been assigned and deflected. The state has taken some safety measures and others are planned. But whether the state has done enough to prevent future tragedies is unclear. Paynes Prairie is a lowlying, poorly lit stretch of I-75, which runs the length of Florida from Miami-Dade County into Georgia. Heavy fog and smoke had forced its closure early last Jan. 29, but by about 3 a.m. there was enough visibility that the Florida Highway Patrol was debat-ing whether to reopen it. A sergeant objected, saying that if the visibility again dropped there wouldnt be time to reclose the high-way. But a lieutenant, with support from state forestry and transportation officials, overruled him, citing the danger of drivers taking unfamiliar back roads in the darkness. Within 15 minutes, the sergeants fears were realized. I could see perfect, one second later, its like walking into a blank, to a white blanket that you cant see nothing, trucker Hector Rodriguez told a FHP investigator after his stopped semi was struck multiple times. I started hearing people, you know, something banging on the back of the truck. All these accidents bang, everybody bang, like seconds behind each other. People screamed for help in the darkness, the only light coming from burning cars. When report-ers toured the scene hours later, twisted, burned-out vehicles were scattered across the pavement, with smoke still rising from the wreckage. A Florida Department of Law Enforcement report issued last April primarily blamed the FHP. It said the lieutenant who ordered the road reopened had no for-mal training in procedures for reopening roads. The FHP responded to the report in August, defending its actions. Even if each of the recom-mendations made by the FDLE in its incident review were to have been present or occurred that night, it is probable the same decision would have been reached, it said. It also put a lot of the blame on the drivers, say-ing No amount of planning or policy will take the place of driver reaction to low visibility and unpredictable conditions. Since the accident, the FHP and other state agen-cies have instituted new safety measures, but even stronger initiatives are still in the planning stages and are at least a year away from being implemented. Among those the FHP has already implemented: Q It reviewed all of its relevant policies governing road closures and a watch supervisor in each troop is now responsible for the oversight of all significant incidents. Q It trained more than 6,000 sworn Florida Turnpike Enterprise radio communications members and reserve troopers on road closure procedures and protocols. Q It will now conduct an annual review of its road closure protocols with the Florida Forest Service. Q It is conducting a public awareness campaign on driving in the smoke and fog, featuring billboards in four cities. The Florida Highway Patrol updated its policies, annual training for troopers and guidelines to ensure the most effective response to smoke/fog incidents on Florida highways, FHP spokeswoman Nancy Rasmussen wrote in a state-ment to The Associated Press. Our continued partnerships ... assist us with providing information on decisions concerning roadway closures, which are made appropriately and on a case-by-case basis by on-scene personnel, based on their assessment of vis-ibility, safety and other fac-tors. The Florida Department of Transportation is spend-ing $4 million to improve safety on the Paynes Prairie stretch of I-75, work that wont be completed for at least a year. There are already new programmable signs in each direction that can warn drivers of Heavy Fog or other dangers. In addition, FDOT spokes-man Gina Busscher said closed-circuit TV cameras, located every mile from the south side of Paynes Prairie State Preserve to two miles north of the SR-222 interchange, have been in place since August. Further improvements include more message signs, permanent closed-circuit cameras, vehicle detectors, visibility sen-sors, a fiber optic network to ensure reliable data transmission and infra-red detection cameras. The federal government has recommended using closed-circuit TV monitor-ing for fog-prone roads for 20 years. There are also plans for the same improvements on US -441, which runs paral-lel to I-75 through Paynes Prairie. FDOT State Traffic Operations Engineer Mark Wilson wrote in a state-ment to The Associated Press that the changes will give the agency the ability to detect traffic or weather concerns quickly, assess the issue and then quickly implement a response. Finding closure for the victims of last years crash-es may not come as quickly, though. Georgia attorney Bill Mitchell is representing 15-year-old Brazilian national Lidiane Carmo, one of 13 people who have notified the state of their intention to file a lawsuit relating to the crash. She was riding in a church van and returning with her famil to Marietta, Ga., from an Orlando con-ference when they were involved in the pileup. The accident killed her father, Jose Carmo Jr., 43, the pastor at a church for Brazilian immigrants; her mother, Adrianna Carmo, 39; her sister, Leticia Carmo, 17; her uncle, Edson Carmo, 38; and her uncles fiancie, Roselia DeSilva, 41. Lidiane, who was sleeping in her fathers lap, sur-vived. She spent six weeks in the hospital recovering from several broken bones and internal injuries. She has been adopted by an uncle in Georgia and is back in school. If the state highway patrol would have done things different, this never would have happened, Mitchell said. One of the resolutions were seeking is making sure theyre put-ting things in place so this doesnt happen again. Mitchell said that when Gov. Rick Scott visited acci-dent victims or their fami-lies in the hospital days after the crash, he told them that the state would do what is necessary to do what is right. But now state officials are telling him and other lawyers to go ahead and sue, rejecting any negotiation overtures. We have had preliminary reports come out that say the State of Florida has had significant culpability. Im surprised that their risk management has taken a different position. Were not saying the state is 100 percent at fault, but given the findings and reports, they hold some culpabil-ity, Mitchell said. Scott said he met a lot of the families after the crash and, your heart goes out to them. That crash was devastating. Unfortunately, that is in litigation right now, so you have to watch and see what happens in the litigation. Attorney Jack Adams is representing victims Juliana and Joilson Lima, who were also in a van returning to Georgia from the Orlando church conference. Both sustained major injuries in their crash, including face wounds and spinal dam-age. Physically, they are doing OK, Adams said. They had some pretty seri-ous injuries...But I think in talking to all the people involved in this accident, its just an emotionally scarring thing for them...There were collisions, fires and explosions all over the place. Its something out of nightmares. He said he isnt surprised by the posture that state has taken. The law regarding the states sovereign immunity was recently changed and is limited to no more than $200,000 per person and no more than $300,000 per incident or occurrence unless the Legislature and governor approve a waiver. Adams said an argument could be made that each collision is a separate accident or that the entire pileup was one single inci-dent. Were still evaluating the possibility of filing the suit, he said. Its such a complicated accident that nobody wants to do any-thing prematurely or jump in without understanding fully what happened. The state is a difficult party to bring a lawsuit against, and for good rea-son. But theyre also will-ing to accept liability when its their fault. Considering their decisions to open and close the roadways, its hard not to pin some blame for this accident on the state.A year later, I-75 crash fest still makes waves ASSOCIATED PRESS FILEOfficials work at the scene of a multi-vehicle wreck on Interstate 75 at Paynes Prairie south of Gainesville on Ja n. 29, 2012. A series of accidents caused by fog and smoke from a ne arby wildfire killed 11 and two dozen were hurt in one of the worst highway accidents in Florida history. Since the accident, Florida Highway Patrol and other state agencies have ins tituted new safety measures and training. Some procedure changes made;lawsuits coming. J. C. Penney brings back sales Gov. to make trade trip to Chile TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott is heading back to South America on anoth-er trade mission. Scott will go on a fourday trade mission to Chile from May 20 through May 23. Scott late last year went to Colombia on a four-day trade mission. This marks his eighth trip abroad since he was sworn in as governor in January 2011. Enterprise Florida, the states economic develop-ment agency, said that Chile ranks sixth among Floridas top products export destinations. Florida exports to Chile increased by 24.3 percent from October 2011 to October 2012.Dems chair vote tally modified TALLAHASSEE Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tants victory in the party chairman election ended up being closer than first announced after missing votes were discovered. The party initially announced Saturday that Tant beat Alan Clendenin 587 to 448. But a ballot from Miami-Dade County wasnt counted when it got stuck to another ballot. The final result ended up being 587 to 507. The bal-lots are weighted based on the size of the county the voter represents. After discovering the ballot, party officials twice recounted the vote.Campaign targets child abuse TALLAHASSEE Child welfare officials are launch-ing a public awareness campaign called Dont Miss the Signs to remind Floridians about their obli-gation to report suspected child abuse. The message will soon be seen on television ads and posters, urging resi-dents to raise their voices to stop child abuse. Q Associated Press AROUND FLORIDA By ANNE DINNOCENZIOAP Retail WriterNEW YORK J.C. Penney is bringing back sales. The struggling department store chain this week will begin adding back some of the hundreds of sales it ditched last year in hopes of luring shoppers who were turned off when the discounts disappeared, CEO Ron Johnson told The Associated Press. Penney also plans to add price tags or signs for more than half of its merchandise to show customers how much theyre saving by shopping at the chain a strategy used by a few other retailers. For store-branded items such as Arizona, Penney will show comparison prices from com-petitors. The reversal comes on the eve of the one-year anniversary of its original vow to almost completely get rid of the sales that Americans covet but that cut into a stores profits. The idea was to offer everyday low prices that customers could count on rather than the nearly 600 fleeting discounts, coupons and sales it once offered. The bold plan has been closely watched by others in the retail indus-try, which commonly offers deep discounts to draw shoppers. But so far the experiment has served as a cautionary tale of how difficult it is to change shoppers habits: Penney next month is expected to report its fourth consecutive quarter of big sales drops and net losses. After losing more than half of its value, Penneys stock is trading at about $19. And the companys credit rat-ings are in junk status. Johnson, who rolled out the pricing plan shortly after taking the top job in November 2011, told The Associated Press the latest moves are not a deviation from his strat-egy but rather an evolution. Our sales have gone backward a little more than we expected, but that doesnt change the vision or the strat-egy, said Johnson, who previously masterminded Apple Inc.s retail stores and Target Corp.s cheap chic fashion strategy. We made changes and we learned an incredible amount. That is whats informing our tactics as we go forward. But critics say Johnson is backpedaling. Walter Loeb, a New York-based retail consultant, said Johnson is now realizing that he has to be more promotional to attract shoppers. The pricing strategy has been a key part of Johnsons plan to rein-vent Penney, which had failed to change with the times as its competitors updated their stores to make them cool places to shop. The plan includes adding hip new brands such as Joe Fresh and replacing racks of clothing with small shops-within-stores by 2015. But this isnt the first time the pricing strategy has been tweaked. When it was rolled out in February 2012, the plan entailed permanently slashing prices on everything in the store by 40 percent. Penney decid-ed to have just 12 monthlong sales events on some merchandise. And there would be periodic clearance events throughout the year. But the new pricing plan wasnt well received on Wall Street or Main Street, so six months after launch-ing it, Johnson ditched the month-long sales, saying that they were too confusing to shoppers. Johnson said Penney has learned that people dont shop on a monthly basis, but rather they buy when they need something for say, back-to-school or during the winter holidays. And during those times, he said, theyre looking for even more value. I still believe that the customer knows the right price, but they want help, he said. Penney declined to say how many sales events it will offer going for-ward, citing competitive reasons.
From staff reportsTwo groups of Columbia High School students in the Career Technical Education Department took the Florida Ready to Work test on October 23 and 24. Forty-eight of the 49 CHS students who took the test placed. Three achieved gold certification, 29 attained silver and 16 earned bronze. Three gold credentials achievers were Brandy Britt, Corrina Yorke, and Jacob Spradley. One young lady placed a 4 in math, 3 in locating information and below 3 in reading, so she didnt receive a credential. The students were from Linda Moses, Bridget Hosford, Makeba Murphy, and Rebecca Goldens classes. Florida Ready to Work Project Coordinator from Jacksonville, Valencia Strowder, administered the test, along with Linda Moses and Paula Moseley. What is the Florida Ready to Work Credential? The Florida Ready to Work credential is a person-alized certificate, signed by Gov. Rick Scott. The cre-dential shows employers that a student/jobseeker has the fundamental skills needed on the job and is ready to work. There are three credential levels bronze, silver and gold. What do the three credential levels mean? The credential level bronze, silver, gold reflects the scores and skill levels of the student. The higher the student scores, the greater his/her abil-ity to perform more com-plex tasks and qualify for a broader range of job: Q Bronze Minimum score of 3 on all three assessments. Student has skills for 35 percent of jobs today. Q Silver Minimum score of 4 on all three assessments. Student has skills for 65 percent of jobs today Q Gold Minimum score of 5 on all three assessments. Student has skills for 90 percent of jobs today The credential level is determined by the mini-mum or lowest score across all three assessments. For example, a student who scores a 4 in math, 4 in reading and 3 in locating information earns a bronze certificate because the low-est of the scores is 3.

The training in MiamiDade schools will begin in March in hopes of prevent-ing shootings like the one that killed 20 students at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The Miami Herald reports the program is called Typical or Troubled? It was designed by the American Psychiatric Foundation after the mass shooting at Columbine High School 14 years ago. The training will be administered by mental health professionals to about 100 school district psychologists and coun-selors. They, in turn, will train other employees. Mental illness training planned
By ERICA WERNER Associated Press WASHINGTON Side by side, leading Democratic and Republican senators pledged Monday to propel far-reaching immigration legislation through the Senate by summer providing a possible path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people now in the U.S. illegally. The senators acknowledged pitfalls that have doomed such efforts in the past, but they sug gested that Novembers elections with Hispanics voting heavily for President Barack Obama and other Democrats could make this time different. Passage of the emotion ally charged legislation by the Democratic-controlled Senate is far from assured, and a taller hur dle could come later in the House, which is dominated by conserva tive Republicans whove shown little interest in immigration over haul. Obama will lay out his own proposals Tuesday, most of which mirror the Senate plans. Besides the citizenship provi sion, including new qualifications, the Senate measure would increase border security, allow more tem porary workers to stay and crack down on employers who would hire illegal immigrants. The plans are still short on detail, and all the senators conceded that months of tedious and politically treacherous negotiations lie ahead. But with a re-elected Obama pledging his commitment, the lawmakers argued that six years after the last sustained congres sional effort at an immigration overhaul came up short in the Senate, chances for approval this year are much better. Other bipartisan groups of sen ators have stood in the same spot before, trumpeting similar propos als, said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. But we believe this will be the year Congress finally gets it done. The politics on this issue have been turned upside down, Schumer said, arguing that polls show more support than ever for immigration changes and political risk in opposing it. Elections. Elections, said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. The Republican Party is losing the sup port of our Hispanic citizens. And we realize that there are many issues on which we think we are in agreement with our Hispanic citizens, but this is a pre-eminent issue with those citizens. Obama got 71 percent of the Latino vote in November com pared to 27 percent for Republican Mitt Romney. The president will endorse the Senate process during an event in Las Vegas Tuesday, administra tion officials said. He will outline a similar vision for overhauling the nations immigration laws, draw ing on the immigration blueprint he first released in 2011. The blueprint focuses on four key areas: a pathway to citizen ship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., improved border security, an overhaul of the legal immigration system and making it easier for businesses to verify the legal status of workers. The White House has prepared formal immigration legislation that it could sent to Capitol Hill should the Senate process stall, administration officials said. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss internal strategy. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 8A G. W.

Senators unite on immigration plan Congress passes $50.5B Superstorm Sandy aid bill By ANDREW MIGA Associated Press WASHINGTON Three months after Superstorm Sandy ravaged coastal areas in much of the Northeast, Congress on Monday sent a $50.5 billion emergency relief measure for storm victims to President Barack Obama for his signature. I commend Congress for giving families and businesses the help they deserve, and I will sign this bill into law as soon as it hits my desk, Obama said in a statement late Monday. Despite opposition from conservatives concerned about adding billions of dollars more to the nations debt, the Senate cleared the long-delayed bill, 62-36, after House Republicans had stripped it earlier this month of spending unrelat ed to disasters. All 36 votes against the bill were from Republican senators. This is a huge relief, said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., noting the vote came 91 days after Sandy struck. The House passed the bill two weeks ago. Lawmakers say the money is urgently needed to start rebuilding homes, businesses, public transportation facilities and other infrastructure dam aged by the Oct. 29 storm, one of the worst to strike the Northeast. Sandy roared up the East Coast and is blamed for more than 130 deaths and tens of billions of dollars in property damage, par ticularly in New York and New Jersey. The measure is aimed primarily at help ing residents and business es as well as state and local governments rebuild. The biggest chunk of money is $16 billion for Housing and Urban Development Department community development block grants. Of that, about $12.1 billion will be shared among Sandy vic tims as well as those from other federally declared disasters in 2011-2013. The remaining $3.9 billion is solely for Sandy-related projects. More than $11 billion will go to the Federal Emergency Management Agencys disaster relief aid fund for providing shelter, restoring power and other storm-interrupted utility services and meeting other immediate needs aris ing from Sandy and other disasters. Another $10 bil lion is devoted to repairing New York and New Jersey transit systems and mak ing them more resistant to future storms. Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., said Republicans werent seeking to undermine help for Sandy victims but instead were trying to make sure that the money was actually being spent on emergency needs. Were simply trying to say we need some stan dards, Coats said. Earlier in January, Congress approved and Obama signed a $9.7 bil lion bill to replenish the National Flood Insurance Program, which has received well over 100,000 flood insurance claims related to Sandy. Added to the new, $50.5 billion pack age, the total is roughly in line with the $60.4 billion that Obama requested in December. The aid package was greased for passage before the last Congress adjourned and the new one came in on Jan. 3. But Speaker John Boehner refused to bring it to the floor after two-thirds of House Republicans voted against a fiscal cliff deficitreduction deal raising taxes on couples making more than $450,000 a year while deferring some $24 billion in spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. The ruckus after the Senate had passed an earli er $60.4 billion Sandy relief package by a nearly 2-to-1 margin on Dec. 28 exposed deep political divisions within Republican ranks. Theres only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims, the House major ity and their speaker, John Boehner, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie fumed at the time. Top House Republicans responded by bringing new Sandy aid legislation to the floor under ground rules designed to win over as many Republicans as possi ble while retaining support from Democrats eager to approve as much in disas ter aid as possible. GOP leaders cut spend ing in the Senate bill unre lated to disasters. One would have transferred $1 billion for training Iraqi policemen to instead be used to bolster security at U.S. diplomatic missions. The shift in money followed a Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed. Also deleted were $188 million for an Amtrak expansion project that included new, long-planned tunnels from New Jersey to Penn Station in Manhattan, and another $150 million for fisheries disasters that states such as Alaska and Mississippi could have shared. After all the cost-cutting, 179 House Republicans still voted against the disaster aid package with only 49 favoring it. GOP leaders had to rely on yes votes from 192 Democrats to pass it.

It could be a speech. It could be a video session. It could be a grueling prac-tice. Following an eight-game winning streak, a dominant start in the Southeastern Conference and the pro-grams highest ranking in nearly six years, Young fig-ures coach Billy Donovan will do something to get his teams attention. I know coach Donovans going to humble us, Young said Monday. Hes going to find something to make sure we dont get too lifted up on this attention that were getting now. We want to be great for being recog-nized as a good team, but we want to make it all the way. We want to win it all. Then well finally be satis-fied with what weve got. Florida moved up four spots to No. 4 in the lat-est Associated Press college basketball poll, jumped to sixth in the latest Ratings Percentage Index and have been projected a top seed in the NCAA tournament. Thats a lot of love for a team that fell to No. 14 after losing close games away from home against Arizona and Kansas State. How the Gators (16-2, 6-0 SEC) handle their recent success and raised expecta-tions could be key to avoid-ing the kind of letdowns that have plagued so many other top-five teams this season. I almost liken it to driving a car, Donovan said. You go out and drive in a country field and theres nothing to look at. Youre looking at the road. Then all of a sudden, you get into the city and theres a bunch of sights and sounds and things you start looking at. Youre not paying attention to whats in front of you and you drive the car right off the road into a pole. Our guys have got to understand that the chatter and stuff around them is on the peripheral. Its got nothing to do with us pre-paring to get ready for the next game. I think that any good team or any team that moves up in the rankings, you have to deal with that. Florida is home for four of its next five games. The Gators host South Carolina (12-7, 2-4) on Wednesday night, three days before fellow SEC-unbeaten and Florida basketball up to No. 4 in latest AP poll. GATORS continued on 3B Columbia takes down TrojansBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High picked up its third straight win since making a change to the starting lineup when the Tigers knocked off Hamilton County High, 71-55. The Tigers sought revenge for two early-sea-son losses and took care of that by knocking off Suwannee and Hamilton County sandwiched around a win against Lee. Tre Simmons had 20 points in back-to-back vic-tories and Columbia head coach Horace Jefferson said he feels that Simmons is coming into his own when it matters most. The biggest difference in the Tigers, however, is the addition of Akeem Williams to the starting lineup. Jefferson said that it gave the Tigers a defen-sive presence. It showed against Hamilton County as Columbia held the Trojans highest scoring player to only 11 points. Columbia didnt take off until the third quarter after going into the half tied 29-29. The Tigers then doubled up the Trojans with a 28-14 quarter and commanded the rest of the game. The Tigers close out the regular season by hosting county rival Fort White High at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday in Lake City.

No Ben Roethlisberger. Not a Manning in sight. Super Bowl has a pair of fresh faces at quarterback, bona fide nobodies as far as the NFL title game goes. But one will leave New Orleans as footballs new-est star. For Colin Kaepernick and Joe Flacco, this is new terri-tory. And, of course, exactly where they want to be. Flacco, the only quarterback to win a playoff game in each of his first five NFL seasons, will lead the AFC champion Baltimore Ravens into Sundays matchup against the NFC-winning San Francisco 49ers and Kaepernick, a backup for most of his two seasons. Its the first time in more than a decade that the big game doesnt feature one of the big five household names in the glamour posi-tion. You cant get much fresher than quarterbacks who never have gotten this far before. Kaepernick, Flacco lead 49ers, Ravens. QBS continued on 3B

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, JANUARY 29, 2013 3B3Bsports ASSOCIATED PRESSSerbias Novak Djokovic holds his trophy after defeating Britains Andy Murray in the mens final at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melb ourne, Australia on Monday. Djokovic wins 3rd straight AustralianBy DENNIS PASSAAssociated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Novak Djokovic returned to his dominant best to win his third consecutive Australian Open title, deny-ing Andy Murray a second major championship with a 6-7 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2 vic-tory Sunday night at Rod Laver Arena. The top-ranked Djokovic is the first man in the Open era to win three straight Australian titles nine others have won back-to-back but were unable to win three in a row. I love this court, Djokovic said. Its definite-ly my favorite Grand Slam. Its an incredible feeling winning this trophy once more. He has won four of his six majors titles at at Melbourne Park, where he is now unbeaten in 21 matches. Born a week apart in May 1987 and friends since their junior playing days, the two played like they knew each others game very well in a rematch of last years U.S. Open final won by Murray. There were no service breaks until the eighth game of the third set, when Djokovic finally broke through and then held at love to lead by two sets to one. Djokovic earned two more service breaks in the fourth set, including one to take a 4-1 lead when Murray double-faulted on break point. The 25-year-old Serb didnt rip his shirt off this time, as he did to celebrate his epic 5-hour, 53-minute win over Rafael Nadal in last years final. He just did a little dance, looked up to the sky and then applauded the crowd after the 3-hour, 40-minute match. Murrays win over Djokovic in the U.S. Open final last year ended a 76-year drought for British men at the majors, but he still is yet to make a break-through in Australia after losing a third final here in the last four years. Djokovics win went against the odds of recent finals at Melbourne Park. In four of the past five years, the player who won his semifinal second has won the tournament. But this year, Djokovic played his semifinal on Thursday an easy three-set, 89-minute minute win over No. 4-seed-ed David Ferrer. Murray needed five energy sapping sets to beat 17-time major winner Roger Federer on Friday night. The win consolidated Djokovics position as the No. 1-ranked player in the world, while Federer and Murray will be second and third when the ATP rank-ings are released Monday. Their last two matches in Grand Slams Murrays five-set win at last years U.S. Open and Djokovics victory here last year in five in the semifinals had a total of 35 service breaks. It was a vastly different, more tactical battle on Sunday, with the first two tight sets decided in tie-breakers. Murray, who called for a trainer to retape blisters on his right foot at the end of the second set, was vis-ibly annoyed by noise from the crowd during his ser-vice games in the third set, stopping his service motion twice until the crowd qui-eted down. After dropping the third set, he complained about the noise to chair umpire John Blom. Djokovic also appeared frustrated at times, kicking the ball football-style back over the net after he hit a forehand long during a lengthy point, and mutter-ing to himself while sitting down in his chair during changeovers. But both play-ers were guilty of making unforced errors, often end-ing long rallies with shots into the net or long. Murrays fans came dressed for the occa-sion, with some wearing Braveheart-style wigs, Scottish flags painted on their faces and tartan caps. One group of men wore white T-shirts with black letters that spelled out A-N-D-Y; they serenaded Murray at the start of the first two sets. There were a number of Serbian shirts, caps and flags in the stadium, as well as fans calling Ajde! or Come on! in Serbian to support Djokovic. Retired NBA basketball star Vlade Divac was sitting in Djokovics box. Djokovic looked agitated after failing to convert the break points in the first set, frequently looking up to his box and yelling at the members of his team and himself. Although Djokovic went into the match with a 10-7 lead in head-to-heads, Murray had beaten Djokovic five out of eight times in tiebreakers, and that improved to six of nine after four unforced errors by Djokovic to end the first set. Djokovic pegged back that edge in the second set, when Murray also didnt help his cause by double-faulting to give Djokovic a 3-2 lead, and the Serbian player didnt trail again in the tiebreaker. He leveled the match after nearly 2 hours, 15 minutes. Andre Agassi was among those in the capacity crowd at Rod Laver Arena the four-time Australian cham-pions first trip Down Under in nearly 10 years and he later presented the trophy to Djokovic. Victoria Azarenka, who won Saturdays womens singles final over Li Na, was in the crowd with her boy-friend rapper Redfoo. Actor Kevin Spacey, who met in the dressing room with both players ahead of the match and later tweeted a photo of himself with them, also was in attendance for the third straight night. In the earlier mixed doubles final Sunday, wild-card entrants Jarmila Gajdosova and Matthew Ebden of Australia beat the Czech pair of Lucie Hradecka and Frantisek Cermak 6-3, 7-5. 16th-ranked Mississippi comes to town. The No. 4 ranking is Florida highest since the 2006-07 season, when the Gators won the second of back-to-back national championships. Florida spent much of that sea-son atop the polls, but was ranked third heading into the NCAA tournament. Its good for the school, but honestly as a team, were not worried about it, guard Kenny Boynton said. Whether were ranked or not, were going to get a teams best game. So weve just got to go out there and play. Defense has been the catalyst of Floridas rise. Donovans squad has held 10 teams opponents under 50 points and 14 under 60. Florida ranks third in the nation in scor-ing defense, allowing just 51.2 points a game. It starts with Boynton and fellow guard Scottie Wilbekin, suffocating on-ball defenders. Young and fellow big man Will Yeguete have provided plenty of help defense on pick-and-roll plays and drives through the lane. Being in the right position, staying in the white lines, help defense, thats the main things, Boynton said. And con-taining the ball, basically giving up no open 3s and trying to make teams take tough 2s. The Gators have been at their best in league play, winning six games by an average of 26.5 points. The team has shot at least 44 percent in all of those, including at least 35 percent from 3-point range, and allowed no opponent to shoot better than 41 per-cent from the field. Now, though, the Gators will try to continue their streak with a few extra dis-tractions that come with more attention. Weve got to drive our car with two hands on the wheel inside the lane and looking at whats in front, Donovan said. And whats in front of us right now is South Carolina. So thats the challenge that they need to understand. ... No teams perfect. Everybodys got flaws, everybodys got things theyve got to work at. I think the biggest mistake you can make as a player or as a coach or inside your team is to say, OK, were playing really, real-ly good basketball, were great, were OK, every-things going to be fine. Really, all that stuff is in the past. What about today? We dont want to slip and go backwards. Theyve worked hard to get to the point now. Can you keep working hard to continue to grow and develop? GATORS: Highest ranking since 07 Continued From Page 1B NFC blows out AFC, 62-35By OSKAR GARCIAAssociated PressHONOLULU A handful of shenanigans and plenty of points yet still another ho-hum Pro Bowl. Whether the NFLs allstar game will return next season is something the league will ponder the next few months after the NFCs 62-35 blowout of the AFC on Sunday. Its been an unbelievable week, Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson said, And the thing was, if you watched us, everybody was competing today and it was really awesome. Wilson at least got the crowd pumped up in the second half with some nifty scrambles and three pass-ing touchdowns. There was also Houstons sack-happy defensive end J.J. Watt going out for a couple of passes as a wide receiv-er, and retiring Green Bay center Jeff Saturday snap-ping to two Mannings on opposite teams. But while the NFC appeared unstoppable on offense, with nearly each player putting up fantasy-worthy lines in limited play, the AFC had five turnovers and scored most of its points well after the game was no longer competitive. Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph was voted the games MVP with five catches for 122 yards and a touchdown. Guys were competing, guys wanted to win and guys want to keep the game here, Rudolph insisted. That was the point before the game. We want to keep this game rolling for future Pro Bowlers. Roger Goodell has said the Pro Bowl wont be played again if play didnt improve this year. At the start of the season, I was just hoping to get on the field some way, some-how, said Kaepernick, the backup for Alex Smith, who took the 49ers to the con-ference final last season. He got that chance after Smith sustained a concus-sion on Nov. 11, and hasnt seen the bench since. Win this one and hell have a piece of history, join-ing a heady quarterback club that includes Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Steve Young, who guided the 49ers to five NFL titles a victory every time they played. No. 6 would tie the team with Roethlisbergers Pittsburgh Steelers a record for most Super Bowl wins. A second-round draft pick in 2011 out of Nevada not exactly Alabama Kaepernick has the shortest pro resume of any Super Bowl quarterback. Its impressive, nonethe-less.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 29-year-old man with a criminal record. I got involved in some fraud and embezzlement rings when I was in my early 20s, and served nine months before being released on parole. Since then I have moved in with my mother, found a job, and Im trying to be the man I know Im capable of being. I have reached the point where Id like to begin dating again. The problem is, I dont know when the time is right to bring up my past. If I wait too long, my name is mud for not saying any-thing sooner. I want to do the right thing so I can stay on the right path. Can you help me? -A BETTER MAN IN NEW YORK DEAR BETTER MAN: I agree that the chapter of your life in which you were in prison is not something you should reveal on a first date. But do raise the subject around the fourth date, because by then the woman will have had a chance to get to know you. When you bring it up, make it clear that you didnt go to jail for a violent crime and youre not on any offenders list. If she likes you, shell hear you out and understand that you dont plan to repeat your past mistakes. Men who have served their time can go on to lead successful lives, and tell her that you plan to be one of them. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am blessed with two beautiful daughters. One is 13; the other is 4 months old. For 11 years my 13-year-old, Lily, was my life. I had dated, but they were all Mr. Wrongs. Two years ago I finally met a wonderful man, Kevin. He is good to me, and he and Lily get along to a point, but hes shy and doesnt talk much. Kevin moved in with us a few months after I found out I was pregnant. I try to include Lily in our new family, but she feels left out. She stays in her room and doesnt have much to do with Kevin. She wouldnt go with me to the babys doctor appoint-ments and pretty much ignores her new baby sister. I have told myself shell come around, but it hasnt happened. What can I do to assure Lily that I love her as much as I always have? I want our family to be happy. I hope to eventually marry Kevin. Lilys dad isnt very involved in her life. Every time I try to include Lily, she gets mad and says she doesnt want to do the family functions. Help, please. -WEST VIRGINIA MOM DEAR MOM: Thirteen can be a difficult age and your work is cut out for you. You will have to be more proactive in order to make this arrangement function more like a fam-ily. Kevin may be shy, but he should be encouraged to make more of an effort to get to know Lily. As the adult, it is his job to break the ice and find something in common with her. Also, Lily should not be allowed to hide out in her room and not participate in any activities. If you permit the status quo to continue, at some point she will start looking for a place where she feels she belongs in a situation beyond your control or supervision. If you are out of ideas on how to get your daughter to cooperate, then involve a family therapist to help you through the road-blocks. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Stay alert. Someone may try to manipulate you if you arent careful. Know your boundaries and stick to a practical plan.

Love and romance are in the stars. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Take a moment to plan your actions. It wont take much to get negative feedback from someone looking for differ-ent results. Change will be necessary, but it has to be something that is wanted by everyone involved. Look before you leap. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Make a financial move that will help you accumulate more money. An investment that is solid but unique will allow you to make a professional move. Love is highlighted, and spending time with someone special will make your day. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Keep your thoughts a secret if you feel it will cause a problem with someone you love and respect.
