Parent trigger bill revived By BRANDON LARRABEE THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE A Republican senator has revived an education bill that sharply divided the cau cus in 2012, potentially sparking a renewed fight over how big of a say parents should have in school overhauls and testing the newly conservative bent of the chamber. Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, filed a new version of the legisla tion, commonly known as the par ent trigger bill, on Wednesday. The proposal (SB 862) would allow parents to petition their school board to adopt a specific turnaround option for any school that drew an F on state report cards for two straight years. If a majority of parents were to sign the petition, the district would either have to implement the plan or submit both the par ents plan and its own choice to the State Board of Education, which would then choose one of the proposals. When you give parents the opportunity to get involved and do whats best for their kids, its a win, Stargel said Wednesday. Supporters are hopeful that the measure will pass this year. Retweeting a bloggers question about whether the bill might have a better chance in 2013, House Speaker Will Weatherford, BILL continued on 3A ARTIST continued on 3A ARREST continued on 3A HOUSING continued on 3A Measure would give parents a choice when schools fail. HIGHWAYMAN HITS THE ROAD COURTESY PHOTOS ABOVE, BELOW RIGHT: R.L. Lewis Jr. demonstrates his painting style to about 70 people Thursday at Florida Gateway College.

Member of famed art group visits Works will also be on display during Olustee Festival. Home prices on rise here Figures for 4th quarter seen as encouraging. By DEREK GILLIAM dgilliam@lakecityreporter.com Columbia Countys real estate market appears to be holding steady as prices slide up and supply continues to drop. Dan Gherna, executive vice president of the Lake City Board of Realtors, said fourth quarter numbers show inven tory is down and the market is stable. While inventory continues to decline, there are still 11.9 months of supply. Months of supply is an estimate of how long it will take to sell all the current inventory. In the fourth quarter of 2011, by comparison, Columbia County had a 17.7 month sup ply of homes to sell. According to Florida Realtors, a balanced mar ket should have 5.5 months of supply. Since Columbia Countys inventory is higher than average, buyers have the advantage. But theres less inventory than there was, and that has caused home prices to rise slightly, Gherna said. The median sale price for a single family home was $110,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of 14 percent from the previous years fourth From staff reports U.S. Rep Ted Yoho (RGainesville) will hold a town hall meeting next week in Columbia County.

Red light camera repeal bill moves TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A bill to repeal Florida’s law permitting the use of cameras to ticket motor-ists who run red lights has begun moving through the Legislature. Its first committee of reference narrowly approved the bill on Thursday. Law enforcement officials argued against repeal, saying the cameras save lives. Opponents contended studies on their effective-ness are flawed and con-tended the real issue is money. The state gets $83 of each $158 fine. That amounted to $51 million in the last full budget year. Local governments and camera contractors get the rest. The bill is on a fast track in the House with only one more committee stop — Appropriations — before a possible floor vote. It may have problems in the Senate, though, were no similar legislation has been filed.Scott seeks to aid trafficking victims MIAMI — Gov. Rick Scott said Wednesday he wants to earmark roughly $4.5 million in the state budget to fight human traf-ficking and help victims recover in a safe place after they’re rescued. The bulk of the money would create 30 rape crisis centers statewide and help improve law enforcement response to crimes of rape and sexual abuse. Another $1.5 million will also pro-vide victims of sex traf-ficking with a safe place to rehabilitate instead of charging them with pros-titution or holding them in juvenile detention facilities. The “safe houses” around the state will help victims heal in a therapeutic envi-ronment, officials said. The Department of Children and Families has investigated more than 1,000 cases of alleged human trafficking involv-ing children in Florida. Its child abuse hotline was one of the first hotlines in the country to handle reports alleging sex traf-ficking. During a press conference in Miami with Scott on Wednesday, juvenile justice and child welfare officials also announced they are expanding a pilot program that helps identify sex trafficking vic-tims. The program trains staff and gives them an assessment tool to identify victims as soon as they enter the system. Staff then calls the state child abuse hotline and an alert is entered into the juvenile justice data system to track the child and ensure they receive appropriate ser-vices. The program is in Broward, Miami-Dade and Orange Counties. Department of Juvenile Justice Secretary Wansley Walters said Florida is the first state in the nation to attempt to identify victims immediately upon arrest. Florida lawmakers passed the Safe Harbor Act last year to ensure that child sex traffick-ing victims get help from child welfare professionals instead of being placed in juvenile detention. Florida is particularly vulnerable spot for traffick-ing crimes because of its location makes it an easy transit point for predators.Gov. to lead trade mission to Paris TALLAHASSEE — Florida Gov. Rick Scott is heading on another trade mission, and this time he’s going to Paris. The state’s jobs development agency announced Wednesday that Scott will lead a delegation of aviation, aerospace and defense firms to the 50th International Paris Air Show in June. Scott last year attended an air show held in the United Kingdom. He has gone on several international trade mis-sions since becoming governor including trips to Spain, Israel, Brazil, Canada and Colombia. Scott is scheduled to lead a trade mission to Chile in late May. Scott has defended the foreign trips as vital for Florida’s eco-nomic success.Feb. 26 execution delay sought TALLAHASSEE — New lawyers representing a drug trafficker convicted of killing a state trooper with a pipe bomb are ask-ing the Florida Supreme Court to stay his execution set for Feb. 26. Two attorneys recently hired by death row inmate Paul Augustus Howell’s brother filed the request on his behalf Thursday. They say two courtappointed lawyers previ-ously assigned to the case have a conflict of interest and are woefully unpre-pared to handle last-ditch appeals in state and federal courts. Howell was convicted of gift-wrapping a microwave oven booby trapped with a pipe bomb and intended to kill two Panhandle women because they knew too much about a South Florida drug ring. Instead, it killed Trooper Jimmy Fulford who had stopped a car that was delivering the bomb for a traffic violation. NASHVILLE, Tenn. L ady Gaga has canceled the rest of her tour dates due to a hip injury. Live Nation Global Touring said in a news release Wednesday that Lady Gaga has a tear in her right hip that will require surgery, followed by a recov-ery period. The pop star’s website showed 21 dates through March 20 remaining on her “Born This Way Ball” tour schedule. Fans who have already bought tickets will receive a refund beginning Thursday. Lady Gaga postponed four dates on Tuesday after experiencing dif-ficulties Monday during her concert in Montreal. The singer’s show is high energy with non-stop dancing. She explained to fans on Twitter that she’d hurt herself while performing some time ago. She wrote: “I hid it from my staff, I didn’t want to disappoint my amaz-ing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can’t.” A news release announcing postponements Tuesday said the 26-year-old singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, was suffer-ing from synovitis, an inflammation of the joints. She underwent tests Wednesday morning that showed she had a labral tear in her right hip, however. The labrum is a layer of muscle that helps holds the ball-shaped hip joint in place. The news release says the surgery will require strict downtime.‘Melrose’ actress gets 3 years for deadly crash SOMERVILLE, N.J. — A former “Melrose Place” actress who was driving drunk when her SUV plowed into a car and killed a New Jersey woman has been sentenced to three years in prison. The victim’s husband yelled, “What a travesty!” at the judge after Thursday’s sentenc-ing, and he and his son stormed out of the courtroom. Amy LocaneBovenizer faced up to 10 years in prison after a jury in November convicted her of vehicular homicide in the 2010 death of 60-year-old Helene Seeman in Montgomery Township. The judge lowered the maximum sentence citing the hardship on Locane-Bovenizer’s two children. One has a medical and mental dis-ability. The actress apologized to Seeman’s family. Locane-Bovenizer’s blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit when the crash occurred as Seeman’s husband turned into their driveway.Katie Couric bedeviled by strange 911 calls NEW YORK — Katie Couric is losing sleep over some odd 911 calls. New York City police said Thursday they had been called to Couric’s Manhattan home several times recently because of 911 calls traced to a phone listed there. The 911 operator hears only static, but police are compelled to answer each call. The calls come on Tuesdays at 2 a.m., as Couric told an audience at her talk show’s taping this week.

R-Wesley Chapel, added one word: Yes. But opponents say the bill is meant to increase the number of charter schools in Florida and allow deeppocketed companies to fund campaigns allowing them to essentially take over public schools. We should focus our efforts on improving pub lic schools, not giving up on them by handing the keys to a for-profit corpo ration, Senate Minority Leader Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, said in a state ment. Our teachers, our children, and our public schools are not for sale. In a rare move for legisla tion that has not even been heard in committee, the Florida Democratic Party issued a statement blasting the proposal. This bill is nothing more than the same failed edu cation policies that have drained millions of tax dol lars from our public schools, and given these dollars to out of state corporations and for-profit companies who seek to profit off our childrens education, said Scott Arceneaux, the par tys executive director. Similar legislation died in the final days of the 2012 session, victim to infight ing in the fractious GOP majority in the Senate. Eight Republicans broke ranks with party leadership and killed the bill on a tie vote, despite support for the leg islation from Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Jeb Bush. But five of those Republicans are gone former Sen. Mike Fasano is now in the House and several of them have been replaced by lawmakers believed to be less willing to buck party leadership. Even if the remaining GOP renegades voted with a larger Democratic minor ity again, the bill would pass unless additional Republicans jumped ship.

First Federal and Lifeguard Ambulance Service are title sponsors pf the event. College. Charles Hall, president of the college, owns an R.L. Lewis Jr. painting, and worked with the Blue-Grey Army to bring the artist to the college as part of Black History Month. The exciting thing about Black History Month is we get to focus on a whole group of people that have meant so much to the culture and development of the United States that dont get recog nized enough, Hall said. Lewis will also be set up in the down town law office of Lisa Schlizkus on Friday and Saturday during the Olustee Battle Festival. The office will be open to those who want to see his work. Lewis said he has been drawing since he was knee high on a duck, and his mother taught him. Lewis started paint ing in the 1950s in high school. The Highwaymen lifestyle was brought on by limited venues for blacks to sell art. Galleries and museums would not take their art, so the 26 original Highwaymen made a living selling a painting at a time. On Thursday while Lewis painted, his son, Robert L. Lewis III, spoke about the history of the Highwaymen and his fathers journey. Lewis III remembers when he was young and his father had 12 paintings in the car. They pulled up to a bank, and Lewis III bet his father he wouldnt sell all the paintings. Some time passed, and then his father came back with one paint ing left. He joked with his father. Then his father told him there were only 12 people inside the bank. Lewis Jr. said to make it as a Highwaymen the gift of gab was required. Lewis Jr. still sells paintings, but now hes a nationally recognized artist, and no longer sells paintings out of the trunk of his car. His son acts as his manager, and festi vals find them. With the bright yellow and orange base done, Lewis Jr. splotches on dark shapes with the same 2-inch brush. The dark shapes quickly form into trees with a light touch of green from the artist with 60 years of experience. Depth is added, and shadows next. Last, Lewis Jr. adds two flying birds, and a stork wading in the water. The painting is typical Highwaymen. The colors are bright, the painting depicts a Florida waterway, and its for sale. When asked if he ever misses selling paintings across Florida out of the trunk of a car, his son speaks up and says the old man still travels Florida and works just as hard as when he was young. ARREST: Caught after flight Continued From Page 1A of Corrections officers on Wednesday. The depu ties attempted to serve the warrant at about 8:30 a.m, according to the news release. Hodge was located by deputies and arrested near River Rise Park after deputies spent three hours tracking him. He was taken to Columbia County Detention Facility and booked into the jail at 3:10 p.m. No bond was issued for Hodge. He faces an additional charge of resisting arrest without violence, according to the news release. HOUSING: Local real estate market shows strength Continued From Page 1A quarter. Gherna said he was impressed with the fact 90 percent of new pending sales closed. He said 354 homes were sold in 2012. These numbers reflect a stenghthening of the market. Instead of just kicking the tires, people are buying now, Gherna said. That showed me the market is stronger. Also, Gherna said there arent as many short sales or foreclosure sales flooding the market. In 2011, 48 percent of homes sold in Columbia County were distressed homes. Distressed homes are homes sold in foreclousre or by short sales. There were 139 new homes listed in the fourth quarter, also a small decrease from the previous years fourth quarter when 145 homes were for sale. The total number of homes for sale in the fourth quarter was 351, a decline of 22.9 percent from 2011. Many of the homes sold in Columbia County were priced between $100,000 and $149,999 with 24 homes sold in that price range. Gherna said that price range would reflect the homes bought by people in the middle class and is a good sign for the economy. A total of 75 homes were sold in Columbia County in the fourth quarter of 2012, down slightly from 80 homes sold in 2011. Gherna said $100,000 to $149,999 has always been the strength of the Columbia County real estate market, and homes now priced at that level were much more expensive during the boom years of 2003 to 2006. He said a home that now sells for $150,000 would have brought more than $230,000 during the boom years, and the median price of a home in Columbia County was $182,000 during that time. We were to an unsustainable point, he said about the boom years of the early 2000s. Other numbers to consider: There were 28 cash sales in the fourth quarter, which Gherna said indicates investors are buying homes in the area. The average sale price rose slightly compared to last years fourth quarter. In 2012 the average sale price was $116,599. Last year was $116,087. There were 98 new pending sales last quater. In 2011s last quarter, there were 66 new pending sales. The median days a home took to sale increased to 104 days. Last years fourth quarter median days on market was 79. Gherna said there could be a number of reasons for this increase, including increased federal regulation of banks. Ex-Gov. Bush received well in Tallahassee By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Former Gov. Jeb Bush returned to the state capital on Thursday where he was showered with high praise and urged to run for presi dent by fellow Republicans. Bush was making his first visit to Tallahassee in more than two years. His last visit came when he attended the inauguration of Gov. Rick Scott. He made stops in the Florida Capitol where he talked to legislators about education and immigration while stopping short of rendering his opinion on such items as Scotts own pitch this year to give teach ers an across-the-board $2,500 pay raise. The legislature is about ready to start, Bush said. Im here to say hello to friends and to advance the cause of rising student achievement. Both House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz gave a warm welcome as did House Republicans. Following a short Bush speech several House members made sure to snap pictures alongside of Bush, who is mentioned as a potential presidential candidate for 2016. Gaetz, R-Niceville, made a direct pitch for Bush to run, asking him directly when the bus is leaving for Iowa, the home of the cau cuses that start the nomi nating process. He noted that Bush didnt say no about running. Jeb Bush would be a great president, Gaetz said. I would get on the bus and go to Iowa and wear out my shoes and knock my knuckles raw for him. When asked about Gaetzs comment Bush smiled and called him a sweet guy. Bushs profile has been on the rise in recent months. He is scheduled to release a book on immigra tion in early March and he has been making stops in state capitals as he contin ues his push for education law changes. His trip to Tallahassee included more than just a visit to legislators. Bush also held a fundraiser for the Foundation for Excellence in Education and a meet and greet with alumni of his administration. Bush was governor from 1999 to 2007. Weatherford who called himself a Jeb Bush fan said he had a candid conversation about several issues. But Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, said he did not dis cuss specific legislative pro posals such as Scotts pay raise plan or a new parent trigger bill that would let parents have a vote in what steps should be taken with failing public schools. The parent trigger bill was narrowly defeated last year in the Senate after it came under fire as a way to allow for-profit charter schools to take over schools. A new version has been filed again for the 2013 session. Bush said he did not have an opinion on Scotts teacher pay plan which has not been warmly embraced by Republican legislators so far. But he defended the return of the parent trig ger measure. He said the bill doesnt mandate that schools be converted to charter schools, but that it gives parents a role in the decision.

OPINION Friday & Saturday, February 15 & 16, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A I nnocent children have been shot down in their classrooms, and good people are threat-ened at gunpoint, and killed or raped in their own homes. Some of our best leaders have been shot. Couples and families have been gunned down by their own family members. Kids get hold of guns and kill others. Do you some-times feel helpless to do anything about it? Aren’t there wild accusa-tions and hot arguments on both sides of the issue? How can we deal with a very emotionally charged issue, and respond with good judgment, make good decisions, and do the right thing? Can we move through the controversy, and do something positive and useful? Everyone has strong feelings about the dangers and risks of deadly weapons. Is there a best way to minimize danger to the public, and minimize all the useless loss of life? Each violent act is unique and different from every other violent act. There’s no easy solution. Who will be the next perpetrator, or who will be the next victim? Any of us could be in danger, and we may not even see it coming. Uncertainty gives rise to the fear of the unknown. Fear causes stress, helplessness, frustration and anger. Feeling strong emotions can cloud our reasonable thinking skills and good judgment. When we grope for answers and reassurance, we’re frustrated that there’s no one easy answer. We take a stand and will argue vigorously to defend it. We join a group with similar points of view, and feel that it’s “us against them.” The media loves conflict. In a recent interview on CNN, the inter-viewer responds to a gun advocate, “Well, you’re a stupid man, aren’t you?” (Great argument, huh?) The gun advocate responds with, “You’re full of ....,” and accuses him of being ignorant. When someone offers a strong argument that conflicts with your opinion, do you feel a need to argue back? Instead of trying to defend your point of view in an argument, wouldn’t it be better to focus on finding solutions to the real problem instead of trying to win an argu-ment? Maybe the issue isn’t guns at all, but finding how we can help our country continue to develop reasonable laws that protect both our safety and our rights. It’s not the same thing, I know, but haven’t we done pretty well with regulating the automobile? In the hands of some evil or crazy folks can’t cars be deadly weapons? We don’t ban and destroy all cars because of a few nuts. Cars are very useful and necessary in our civilized country. But neither do we abandon all traf-fic laws and requirements, letting people drive drunk or run down pedestrians. Reasonable laws, developed by thinking citizens and their represented lawmakers, have come up with pretty good laws to protect us, while preserving our basic rights to own and use a vehicle. Can’t we do the same for gun laws? We can’t do it by being that demonstrator that accuses gun rights advocates of being con-spirators and murders, and who needs to be dragged out of a pub-lic meeting. On the other hand, we can’t do it by being that wild west cowboy who is just looking for a chance to use a gun to settle issues or release anger with, or who keeps an arsenal for when the government attacks his home. If we can come up with decent auto-mobile legislation, can’t we do the same for weapons? What can you do? Listen with an open mind to the issues and try to find workable solu-tions. Support legislators and legislation that will stand the test of time Don’t be guided by fear, or polarized in one camp or the other. We can do it. That’s what the founding fathers had in mind, and it’s worked pretty well for some 250 years.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman By now many ... readers are familiar with textgate, the scandal surrounding Orange County commis-sioners who deleted text messages after derailing a citizens’ sick-leave proposal. But there’s another older yet ongoing texting scandal — in Tallahassee, not Orlando. For four years, state law-makers have rejected proposals to ban texting while driving. They’ve ignored tearful pleas from citizens who have lost loved ones in accidents caused by texting drivers. They’ve dismissed appeals from police. All but six states have passed state laws to prohibit this hazardous habit. Studies have shown it can be more dangerous than driving drunk. This past week, a Senate committee endorsed a bill from Venice Republican Nancy Detert that would allow police to go after those who text behind the wheel — but only if they’ve stopped the drivers for speeding or another offense first. Otherwise, a cop who observes a driv-er typing away on his cellphone while navigating through traffic is powerless to do anything about it. The Senate committee members further weakened Detert’s bill so drivers could still text at stop lights. Members even added an exception for cars that drive themselves. What a joke. Text-ban opponents often resort to bogus arguments about protect-ing privacy and liberty. But no driver deserves the right to endanger others on the highway. Detert deserves credit for trying to do something about texting while driving, but lawmakers need to pass a real ban — and finally end this scan-dal. Waiting on texting Guns: Where do you stand?

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.comL et me put my drone cards on the table: Al-Qaida and other self-described Jihadist groups have declared war on America, and are waging war against America. Congress has passed an Authorization for Use of Military Force that gives the president the power to capture and kill members of AQ and allied groups. He should do so aggressively and unapologeti-cally. Drones are useful because they don’t expose American combatants to danger, and they have the poten-tial for pinpoint accuracy. Enemy belligerents, including those who hold American passports, should not be mistaken for criminal defen-dants. Judges should not be con-fused with generals. I do think there ought to be congressional review and oversight of drone operations and “kill lists.” And members of Congress -and the public, too, I believe -should be allowed to consider the process the administration has in place for tar-geted killings, not least those involv-ing American citizens. I’ve been trying to stay focused on these substantive issues, but it’s hard not to get at least a little distracted by the hypocrisy of those who called President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney “war criminals” for using such “enhanced interrogation techniques” as sleep deprivation on about a hundred terrorists, but who have been loath to criticize Obama for sending thousands of terrorists to the Big Sleep. Remember the brouhaha that erupted in 2009 when it was revealed that the Bush admin-istration had merely considered set-ting up “hit squads” to kill al-Qaida operatives? Bush tasked his Justice Department to determine which coercive interrogation techniques were legal and which were not. The mainstream media derisively called these analyses “torture memos.” It was on the basis of these legal opinions that, again, about a hundred detainees were subjected to sleep deprivation, stress positions and sim-ilar techniques in an effort to elicit from them life-saving information about al-Qaida’s plans and planning. “Waterboarding” was used on exact-ly three individuals: Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, the mastermind behind the original 9/11 attacks, and two other senior al-Qaida commanders. All had information vital to America’s national security. None was giving it up easily. The conflicts of the 21st century are different from those of the past -they involve different enemies, different battlefields and different technologies. As former federal ter-rorism prosecutor and legal expert Andrew C. McCarthy has long argued, “a new, hybrid legal frame-work for the modern realities of international terrorism” is needed -if we are to fight effectively, law-fully and morally. Creating such a structure is the responsibility of the White House and the Congress. Perhaps it’s time they got started. 4AOPINION Robert DennyBob.Denny8@gmail.com Q Bob Denny helped teenagers with their issues and their problems for 20 years as a licensed mental health counselor, and currently teaches psy-chology and human growth and devel-opment with Florida Gateway College.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, February 15 & 16, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V I n the gospels of Matthew (chapter 13), Mark (chap-ter 4) and Luke (chapter 8), Jesus tells the par-able that we often call the Parable of the Sower. This is a very popular title but it seems the parable is more about the different soils than it is about the sower. When we compile the story from the three authors, we see that there was a sower who cast seed which fell on different types of soil. There was the “road soil,” the “rocky soil,” the “thorny soil” and the “good soil.” The “road soil” did not germinate resulting in no grain being produced. The “rocky soil” and the “thorny soil” produced the beginnings of a plant but died before it could pro-duce any grain. The “good soil” produced plants which yielded grain in differing amounts. In the explanation of the parable, Jesus says that the “road soil” is a person who “hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in the heart” (Matthew 13:19). The “rocky soil” represents people who “believe for a while, and in time of temptation (when afflictions and persecution arises because of the word, they immediately (Mark 4:17) fall away (Luke 8:13). The “thorny soil” are peo-ple “who have heard the word, but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful” (Mark 4:18, 19). Describing the “good soil” people, Jesus says they are “the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, (accept and understand it – Matthew and Mark) and hold it fast, and bear fruit with persever-ance” (Luke 8:15). There are two things of interest in this story. First, each type of soil “hears the word of the kingdom.” Every person is given an opportunity to hear for themselves what God has done for them and how God can be of benefit to them. The second item of interest is that each person has control over what to do with the message they have heard. The “road soil” demonstrates that some people will not “under-stand” the message and so it is “snatched” away from them. It is nothing more than maybe birdfeed. The “rocky soil” and the “thorny soil” allowed other things to influence their lives so that they fell away from the king-dom of God. It is only the “good soil” that produced the desirable results for the sower. Let us think for a moment about the “thorny soil.” It seems that this “soil” allows everyday life to get in the way of produc-ing for God what He wanted them to do. It seems that they allow everyday events to “choke” out the message of God so that it no longer has an effect upon the individual. Doing “life” can become so busy. We can become so wrapped up in doing what we think must be done, like work-ing, taking our kids to school, sports practice or other events, that we do not have any time to think about God, to say nothing of reading His word, which will build our faith, and praying to God. Would it not be horrible for us, after we have received the word with joy, to then “fall away” just because we mismanaged our time? All of us probably want to be the “good soil.” If you have read this far in the article you are probably not the “road soil.” Because you are still hanging in there you are probably not the “rocky soil.” The real question for all of us is, are we being “choked out” simply because we are not as aware–as we should be–that we are not growing? Maybe we are producing but not to the extent that we could. Are we choking or producing? How would Jesus describe our soil?The church needs revival The soil that hearsA few weeks ago I heard a pastor of a local church say that “this year no money was in the church budget for a revival”. When asked why, he said he felt led to make that decision because revivals don’t work. What a shame. If there is anything in this world that the church of the Lord Jesus Christ needs today, it is revival. The problem with this pastor and many more pastors is they are not willing to lead the church into revival because it takes time and hard work. For a church to experience a suc-cessful revival, preparation and prayer must begin months in advance. Prayer meetings must be held regularly. It speaks vol-umes for the church that allows this to happen. A church that does not want revival is a church that is dead spiritually. Oh, they meet and sing and hear a ser-mon of some sort and then go their way thinking that they have done God a favor by doing this. Churches that allow these things to happen are the churches that need revival the most. What does it mean to experience revival? It means to “flour-ish anew”, or “to live again”, “to regain life”. It’s what the dad said of his son in the Parable of the Lost Son in Luke 15:24. The father said: “For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found”. I know of no one today that does not need revival, including myself; however, most who pro-fess Jesus as their Savior do not think they need revival. They may have been doing the same thing over and over again for years and they do not see the need to change. Many are satis-fied in their little world and don’t see any need for change. How sad. Some things that are needed for a church to have revival are first of all, humility. We must realize that we are helpless on our own. We need to put away our pride and seek humility. Unless we are humble, we can-not experience the blessings from God. Second: more prayer. Most, who call themselves Christian, by their own admis-sion, don’t pray near enough. A far as I know that is the best way to communicate with God. We pray to God in the name of Jesus. If today all the churches came together with prayer and confes-sion our city and county would be changed. Jesus said in Luke 18:1 ”…men ought to always pray”. Jesus spent much time in prayer. When we pray we need to con-fess our own sins first (Psalms 66:18) “If I regard iniquity in my heart, they Lord will not hear me.” Too many in our churches today have bitterness and a loose tongue. There is nothing that can hold back a church from revival more than bitterness among the members, especially among older members. Where there is bitterness in one’s heart it most always leads to a sharp tongue. Nothing in the history of man has brought more sorrow than an uncontrolled tongue. An old proverb states “He that thin-keth by the inch, and speaketh by the yard, should be kicketh by the foot”. I suggest a study of James chapter 3. We all need revival!

T his is the last in this series, but, it can be the beginning of healing for you. Bitterness has caused many of our problems, because we have carried burdens of resentment and hurt too long. Now it’s time to begin to heal, to drop pieces of the load, until all are placed in God’s hands. It is time to begin to release the stag-nant past, instead of using it against someone over and over again … and move on. The story of Joseph is found in Genesis 30-50. Joseph was the favored child of Jacob, (Genesis 37:3-11), thrown in a pit by his jealous brothers, sold into Egyptian slavery (Genesis 37: 15-28). He eventually came into favor with Pharaoh and was second in command. His brothers came for food, but didn’t recognize him, but he recognizes them. His options: put them to death, enslave them, take all they had, have his vengeance. He had the authority he needed to do what he wanted. Instead, he tests them. (Those who break trust might need to be tested, just as Joseph tested his brothers to see if their intentions were good, Genesis chapters 42-44). Yet eventually, when the testing is done, Joseph forgives them. “Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, ‘Have everyone leave my pres-ence!’ So there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers. And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh’s household heard about it”(Genesis 45:1-2). Genesis 45:3-8, “Joseph said to his brothers, ‘I am Joseph! Is my father still living?’ But his brothers were not able to answer him, because they were terrified at his presence. Then Joseph said to his brothers, ‘Come close to me.’ When they had done so, he said, ‘I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will be no plowing and reaping. But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a rem-nant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliv-erance. So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.’” Later, when Jacob was dying, he sent a message to Joseph “I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly. Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father.” When their message came to him, Joseph wept. His brothers then came and threw them-selves down before him. “We are your slaves,” they said. But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” “And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them (Genesis 50:15-20).” Forgiveness brings freedom, and healing to the heart and soul. The ‘wound’ is healing. Eventually it becomes a scar to remind you of God’s grace and forgiveness, both kept and shared. You can indeed win over bitterness, grow old and be a “sweet person” in the Lord. Give yourself a chance to live by forgiving, and, in time, healing.Take responsibility for your lifeW hen my young-est son was about 5 years old, our family went to visit my sister-in-law for the weekend. We were all outside enjoying the pool one afternoon when I ran inside to grab some extra towels. To my horror, I saw the alpha-bet, written in crayon — in his handwriting — all the way down the hall. He was learning to write his letters, and I suppose the freshly repainted hallway was just too tempting a canvas to ignore. When I questioned him, he looked at me with huge eyes and assured me that he didn’t do it. He went on to explain that it must surely have been his little sister (who was 1 year old). Blaming others isn’t something we have to be taught is it? We almost come out of the womb yelling “It’s not my fault!” While today’s culture is awash with reality shows filled with people blaming someone for something, the Bible reminds us this is not a modern phenom-enon. As far back as the Garden of Eden, when called on the carpet, Adam blamed Eve, who blamed the Serpent. This truth exposes a fundamental problem with human nature: We fail to take responsibility for our own lives. Why? A quote by Mason Cooley says it this way: “Excuses change nothing, but make every-one feel better.” Excuses let us off the hook, and we can lay down the heavy load of responsi-bility … temporarily. The problem is that no matter how good the reasoning behind the excuse, you are still no closer to a solution for the issue being excused. A person who will not accept responsibility for their own life and instead con-tinually blames others for what is wrong is a perpetual victim. Unless and until responsibility is taken, this life will continue in a destructive cycle … and go nowhere. In Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus tells the parable of the loaned money: A man called his ser-vants before going on a journey, giving one five talents, one two talents, and one one talent. The first two servants went to work and doubled their sum. The last servant did nothing with his. Upon the master’s return, he praised the first two servants. The last servant immediately began to blame the master: “I knew you were a hard man, hard man … so I was afraid and went out and hid your talent …” The master called the servant worth-less and had him thrown out. The issue we need to address is the same as the servants: What are we doing with what has been given us? We can certainly list everyone that has mistreated us and name every offense in an attempt to get us off the hook for doing nothing to take responsibility for our lives, but when the excuses fade, we will still be dangling from the hook … and nothing will be dif-ferent. Take action with what you have been given, and take responsibility for your life … because every heart matters!

By TIM KIRBY tkirby@lakecityreporter.com FORT WHITE Fort White Highs softball team got beat by a big inning, a lot caused by its own hand. Union County High defeat ed the host Lady Indians 10-5 on Thursday. Fort White got on the board with a run in the first inning and trailed 2-1 after four innings. The Lady Tigers scored eight runs in the fifth inning on three hits. The Lady Indians committed three errors in the inning and there were two walks and a hit batter. Three wild pitches and a passed ball contributed and five of the runs were scored with two outs. Fort White struck back in the sixth inning with four runs. Alexa Hatcher, Ashley DAntonio and Emily Roach loaded the bases on three singles. Kayla Redwine walked to send in a run and two runs scored on a throwing error on a ball hit by Mallorie Godbey. Shea Chesney drove in the final run with a single. Shea Chesney scored Fort Whites run in the first inning after reaching on a two-base error. Alex Walker bunted her to third base and she scored on a ground ball by Hatcher. Ashley Chesney then singled and got as far as third base. Fort White went quietly until Shea Chesney beat out an infield single with two outs in the fifth inning. Walker pitched into the fourth inning for Fort White. She gave up five hits and nine runs, only two were earned, and struck out five. Morgan Cushman relieved and got credit for the final seven outs. She gave up two hits and one run, with two strikeouts. Fort Whites defense produced some good plays. Hatcher made a diving catch on a foul ball behind the plate and threw out a runner attempting to steal second. Shea Chesney had a diving catch in center field. Roach turned a line drive out at second base into a double play. Kaylan Tucker pitched From staff reports Fort White Highs bas ketball team overcame a 17-point halftime deficit and beat host Mount Dora High, 63-62, in the regional quarterfinals of the state playoffs on Thursday. The Indians tied the game with three minutes left to play and made four of five free throws down the stretch. A fast-break basket gave Fort White a three-point lead with 18 seconds left and Mount Dora scored a late deuce for the final. At halftime we said we have to go back to what weve been doing all year, coach Isiah Phillips said. We went man-to-man with a full-court press and picked up the speed. We didnt give up. Jalen Wyche scored all of his team-leading 20 points in the second-half comeback. Chris Cottrell and Michael Mulberry each scored 12 points. Trey Phllips scored eight points, with seven points from Melton Sanders and two each from Paul Perry and Joe Powers. Fort White advances to the region semifinals at 7 p.m. Tuesday and the Indians will play district foe Williston High for the fourth time. The Red Devils, who won the district over Fort White, beat South Sumter High 72-54, and will host. Columbia basketball Columbia High played at Ridgeview High in the playoffs for the second straight year and this time the Panthers won 73-53. Ridgeview was strong and probably the quickest team we have seen, coach Horace Jefferson said. Their experience and physical play was our nem esis. We missed opportu nities early and that set the tone. You have got to outscore people and that is something we didnt do. Morris Marshall led CHS with 16 points. Other scor ers were: Tre Simmons, 8, Javont Foster, 6, Andrew Momeaka, 6, Akeem Williams, 4, Kelvin Jonas, 4, Robert Dace, 3, Wayne Broom, 2, Darrell Jones, 2, and Kevin Louder, 2.

ADAPTIVE LENSES Two romps for Columbia over Aucilla, Lafayette. Tim Kirby is sports editor of the Lake City Reporter SOFTBALL continued on 3B Columbia falls to Ridgeview for second season. Barber in PGA tourney L ake City professionals Blayne Barber and Michael Kirkman are into their seasons. Barber was a successful Monday qualifier for the PGA Tours Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., near Los Angeles. Barber shot a 66 in a pre-qualifier event at Morongo Golf Club, then fired a 65 at Industry Hills Golf Club to make the Northern Trust field. Barber is paired with Steve LeBrun and D.H. Lee for the first two rounds. The threesome played in the afternoon on Thursday. Their Friday tee time was set for 8:35 a.m. PDT. Riviera Country Club is one of the great courses. It has played host to a U.S. Open, a U.S. Senior Open and two PGA Championships. Ben Hogan won the 1948 Open, as well as the 1947 and 1948 Los Angeles Opens at Riviera. After that triple, fellow pro Jimmy Demaret dubbed the course Hogans Alley. Hal Sutton (1983) and Steve Elkington (1995) won the PGAs and Hale Irwin won the Senior Open in 1998. Barber wont be intimidated by the field or the course. He played in the 2012 NCAA Championship at Riviera and tied for seventh with rounds of 69-74-70 on the par 71 tract. Kirkman is one of 36 pitchers the Texas Rangers brought to spring training. Kirkman has pitched out of the bullpen for parts of the last three seasons with the Rangers. He was 1-2 last year with a 3.82 ERA. Evan Grant, the Texas beat writer for Sports Day reported that the Rangers are out of (contract) options for Kirkman and he will be given every chance to make the team. Grant wrote that control issues cost Kirkman his job at the beginning of last season. This year, he would have to be exposed to waivers before being sent down to the minors. Hes lefthanded with a 94 mph fastball; somebody will claim him. The first-pitch strike is a must for Kirkman. Grant reported that on or after 0-and-1 counts, the 77 batters Kirkman faced last year reached base at a rate of .195. In an Associated Press story on the Rangers pitchers, manager Ron Washington said, Kirkman showed some improvement last year. Hopefully, he can continue on.

The NCAA Football Rules Committee said it had unanimously approved strengthening of the pen-alty for intentional above-the-shoulder hits. The 15-yard penalty will now have an ejection tacked on, assuming the Playing Rules Oversight Panel approves the plan next month. Player safety was the theme of the committee’s three-day meeting in Indianapolis, with the ejec-tion for targeting the most noticeable change fans will notice in 2013 across all NCAA divisions. The com-mittee also tweaked the rule on below-the-waist blocks. As for the high hits, chairman and Air Force coach Troy Calhoun said the com-mittee wanted to address clear instances where a defender is leading with the crown of his head to hit a defenseless player above the shoulders. “It’s a real problem in the sport,” he said, “and we need to eliminate it.” Last season, Calhoun said, there were 99 target-ing penalties called in the Football Bowl Subdivision that, under the proposed rule, would have called for an ejection. He said the player on the receiving end of the hit in many cases sustained a concussion or other type of injury that caused him to miss signifi-cant playing time. “It’s not a gigantic number,” Calhoun said of the 99. “Ultimately, our goal is zero. Is that realistic? I don’t know if zero is. But I know any time you involve an ejection, we’re going to see that number go down drastically immediately.” If the penalty occurs in the first half, the player would be ejected for the remainder of the game. If the penalty occurs in the second half or overtime, the player is ejected for the remainder of the game and the first half of the next game. The rule would allow for the ejection portion of the penalty to be reviewed through. The replay official must have conclusive evi-dence to overturn.Lineup change no help to FSUBy BRENT KALLESTADAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — A year ago Florida State was on its way to its first Atlantic Coast Conference title in a season where the Seminoles beat perennial powers North Carolina and Duke each twice. But that was then and six players from that team are gone and it appears to be Miami’s turn to keep the ACC title in Florida. This year coach Leonard Hamilton’s revamped, young team is hoping to squeeze out a winning sea-son. Hamilton made some lineup changes Wednesday looking for a late-season rebound in a team that has sputtered along most of the year. “If we are going to finish strong we are going to need a contribution from a lot of players,” Hamilton said after Wednesday’s 74-68 loss to third-ranked Miami. He started three freshmen along with senior Michael Snaer and junior Okaro White and the Seminoles responded with a strong performance, albe-it not good enough to derail Miami. The Hurricanes (20-3, 11-0 ACC) overcame an early 11-point deficit and deflected a couple of sec-ond half runs by Florida State to remain perfect in the ACC and sweep their series with the Seminoles. “Those older guys on the other team from Miami they kept wearing us down,” White said about Miami’s veteran team.

Kucher holds early lead at Northern TrustASSOCIATED PRESSMatt Kuchar stretches before teeing off on the 10th hole in the first round of the Northern Trust Open golf tournament at Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles on Thursday.Associated PressLOS ANGELES — Coming off a three-week break, Matt Kuchar might not remember golf feeling this easy. He opened with three straight birdies, all of the putts inside 3 feet. He made back-to-back birdies late in his first round at Riviera. He made seven birdies, the longest putt from 8 feet, on his way to a 7-under 64 for a one-shot lead over Sergio Garcia on Thursday in the Northern Trust Open. Garcia, making his PGA Tour debut after two tour-naments in the Middle East, finished with two birdies over the last three holes even though he could bare-ly see. Fog dropped in at Riviera over the final two hours after a day of warm sunshine, and Garcia could barely see the landing area in the fairway or the flags on the green. No matter. He closed with an 8-iron to 6 feet on an elevated green at No. 9 for his seventh birdie. Blayne Barber,who started on No. 10 is 2 under on his 15th hole. SEC baseball gets tougher with Texas A&M, MissouriBy DAVID BRANDTAssociated PressThe Southeastern Conference has won three of the past four NCAA base-ball championships, so the league didn’t need to get any tougher. It might have anyway.The SEC adds Missouri and Texas A&M this sea-son, two solid baseball programs that increase the depth of a league that has no shortage of candidates to go to the College World Series. The season opens today for all 14 teams, with conference play beginning in March. For Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin, the four weeks of non-conference play pro-vide a short window to make sure his team is ready for such a competitive con-ference. “This is the premier league in the country, and the truth is someone’s got to lose,” Corbin said. “It’s a war of attrition. You’ve got to keep yourself from fall-ing over, keep your gloves up. Everyone’s good. Everyone’s recruiting good players. There’s very little difference between the 14th team and the first team.” The SEC’s coaches picked Arkansas to win the league title. The Razorbacks have one of the league’s top pitchers — and a potential No. 1 Major League Baseball draft pick — in right-hander Ryne Stanek. Their lineup will be anchored by Dominic Ficociello, who hit .290 with six homers and 41 RBIs last season. Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn knows that during the 56-game regular season, there’s bound to be some ups and downs. “We’re trying to calm ourselves down a little bit,” Van Horn said. “We’re ranked so high, that expectations, you’re supposed to stay there all year. It’s going to be tough.” Vanderbilt was picked to win the Eastern Division. The Commodores strug-gled early last season, but rallied late to make the NCAA tournament. Most of the team returns, including lineup mainstays Mike Yastrzemski, Conrad Gregor and Tony Kemp. But as usual, most of the league’s teams have a realistic shot of making it to Omaha. Mississippi State, South Carolina, LSU, Kentucky, Mississippi and Florida join the Razorbacks and Commodores in Baseball America ’s preseason top 25. The Gamecocks won back-to-back national titles in 2010 and 2011 and lost in the national champion-ship series to Arizona last season. New coach Chad Holbrook takes over for Ray Tanner, who is the school’s athletic director. There are some new twists to the league this sea-son. The addition of Texas A&M and Missouri is wide-ly viewed as a positive, but there’s now a greater possi-bility that scheduling quirks could affect the outcome of the conference race. The 30-game schedule features three games against 10 opponents, meaning each team will miss three others. Mississippi State looks as though it has one of the toughest schedules, with a weekend series against all of the preseason favorites. “It’s true that because of the schedule, somebody is probably going to have a big advantage over some-body else,” Bulldogs coach John Cohen said. “But truthfully, nobody knows who is going to be the best or worst team in our league right now. I think we’ll see how it works this year and then make changes if need-ed. Our league is evolving. That’s why we’ve pioneered in every sport.” The SEC’s postseason tournament has also expanded to include 12 of the 14 teams. Mississippi coach Mike Bianco said part of the reason the coaches voted for a larger tourna-ment was to help offset the potential inequities of the regular-season schedule. “Our league is so good from top to bottom, we thought it made sense to include more teams in the conference tournament, especially when you consid-er the possible scheduling issues,” Bianco said. Newcomer Texas A&M has a traditionally strong program that’s been to the College World Series three times in the past 20 years, including in 2011. Missouri has consistently made the tournament under 19th-year coach Tim Jamieson.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15-16, 2013 DEAR ABBY: Please use your wide reach to edu-cate well-meaning parents about how their children should behave when vis-iting cemeteries. I’m a funeral professional who takes pride in helping fami-lies honor their heritage and transition from grief to recovery. I especially enjoy helping to allay children’s fears about death and cem-eteries. Often parents allow their children to roam the cemetery as if it were a playground or public park. I have seen kids pull up expensive flowers on other graves and “take them to Mommy.” Naturally, the family who bought the flowers come back a few days later and accuses US of trashing them. I have seem mourners leave precious personal mementos on their loved ones’ graves only for kids to take them as playthings. I have seen kids deface grave markers, entertain themselves by bouncing rocks off headstones or open up brass and bronze cameos, exposing the pho-tos to the elements. The worst is unsupervised kids running off in packs and gathering up the little colored flags that are placed to assure a grave gets dug and set up in time for a pending service. Imagine flying in for the burial of a loved one and the grave isn’t ready because some child grabbed the marking flag while the parents stood idly by. Cemetery employ-ees have been fired for this. Parents, please teach your children that their natural curiosity and play-fulness should find their outlet in more appropriate settings. And please, keep your dogs at home. You wouldn’t want a stranger’s dog doing his business on your expensive marker or loved one’s grave, would you? -THE LAST PERSON TO LET YOU DOWN IN CALIFORNIA DEAR LAST PERSON TO LET YOU DOWN: I’m happy to spread the word. Folks, if your children are too young to under-stand when you tell them the cemetery isn’t a play-ground, that they must remain quiet, respectful and not touch other peo-ple’s property, then they should not be present at the burial. When entering or leaving the cemetery, children and adults should refrain from walking on the graves. Ditto for using it as a dog park. The Golden Rule applies here: Don’t do unto others what you wouldn’t want them to do ONTO you. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: When I married, I moved away to another state and made some great new friends where I live now. My fam-ily visits every few months and I recently started including some of my friends in my family gather-ings and bringing some of them home with me when my husband and I go to visit. I recently found out that my family has been inviting my friends for weekend getaways and camping trips. They even invited my friends to spend the last long holiday weekend with them -without inviting me! I was hurt and offended when I found out. I have nothing against my family and friends getting along, but I always thought I’d be included. Am I overre-acting? -EXCLUDED IN ROCHESTER, N.Y. DEAR EXCLUDED: Perhaps. Not knowing your friends or family members, I can only guess that when you introduced them they may have found some interest in common that you don’t necessar-ily share. But don’t waste time on hurt feelings or pouting because you don’t own your friends, and what your relatives choose to do with their time is out of your control. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have lived in an abusive mar-riage for 11 years. Now, when I have finally mus-tered the courage to leave, everybody says I must stay “for the children” as he is a “changed man.” I no longer love him and he refuses to give me a divorce. He also refuses to admit there is anything wrong in the marriage and says I’m exaggerating everything. I have tried counseling and therapy alone because he refused to join me. I do not want my four children to be affected by my choice and wish for a mutual discussion, but he doesn’t want to discuss divorce. I am afraid to stay and afraid to leave. I have no support system here. -WANTS OUT IN ILLINOIS DEAR WANTS OUT: After 11 years of abuse and counseling and therapy alone because your husband would not accompany you, his wishes should no longer affect your decision. Pick up the phone and contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline, 800-799-7233. That’s the place to find information about how to form an escape plan for yourself and your children. Whether your husband is willing to discuss divorce or not, he cannot force you to remain married to him. An attorney can help you with the process once you are out of there. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I’m a 23year-old woman with a uni-versity degree, a fulfilling job, downtown apartment and a busy social life. I am also heavily tattooed. My tattoos bring me a great deal of happiness. I work in a field where visible tat-toos are acceptable, and I’m very good at covering them when necessary. My problem is how to politely deal with strang-ers who criticize my tattoos when I’m out in public. I have been told I have “ruined” myself, that I have no future, that I’ll never find a husband, that I am ugly, an insult to women and trashy. I do not dress scantily and, in my opinion, these comments are uncalled for. I usually tell people that I am affecting only myself and that I’m happy, but this usually results in scoffs or more rude remarks. Part of me wants to be rude back because I am offended. What should I say the next time I am inevitably picked on? -INKED AND IRKED IN CALGARY, CANADA DEAR INKED AND IRKED: I printed a let-ter last spring about a Canadian woman who insisted that people north of the border are nicer than people in the U.S.A. Your letter shows that’s not necessarily the case. The next time someone makes an unkind remark about your body art, look the person in the eye and say, “That you would say something so hurtful to me shows you are uglier on the inside than you think I am on the outside.” ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My boy-friend and I have been dating for 11 months. He’s 18 and I’m 17. Every date we go on is initiated and planned by me. For once, I’d like to be surprised and swept off my feet by his actually planning a date. I don’t know how to go about this. I want to tell him without hurting his feelings. -GETTING A LITTLE BORED IN QUAKERTOWN, PA. DEAR GETTING A LITTLE BORED: The basis for a successful relationship is communication. While I don’t advise you to tell your boyfriend that you’re “getting a little bored,” I do think it would be helpful to express that you’d like HIM to plan your dates once or twice a month so you don’t have to do all the work in maintaining the relationship. That’s not hurtful; it’s truthful. ** ** ** Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

By BOB WATTENDORF Angling ethics is about common sense and cour-tesy. It contributes to every angler’s safety, success and enjoyment, as well as the future of our sport. Conservation agencies, including the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), fish-ing guides, tourism desti-nations, marinas, tackle shops, anglers and boaters all play a role in making fishing more fun and sat-isfying for everyone. Most share an abiding love for aquatic resources and the role conservation steward-ship plays in keeping our natural resources pristine. The following list is a good reminder. An ethical angler:Q Promotes, through example and mentoring, an ethical use of aquatic resources. Q Values and respects the aquatic environment and all living things. Q Treats other anglers, boaters and property own-ers with courtesy and respect, including removing boat trailers promptly from active launching areas, watching wakes around other boaters, and not crowding other anglers. Q Avoids spilling and never dumps pollutants, such as gas or oil. Q Properly disposes of trash, including worn lines, leaders and hooks. Q Recycles whenever possible and keeps fishing sites litter-free. Q Purchases required fishing licenses and per-mits. (Exempt anglers often buy a license anyway, to contribute to conservation. All fishing license dollars go to the FWC.) Q Learns and obeys angling and boating regula-tions and can identify local fish to adhere to the rules. Q Keep only fish needed for consumption. Q Carefully handles and releases all fish that are unwanted or illegal to keep, minimizing harm to the fish. Q Takes measures to prevent spread of exotic plants and animals and does not use diseased or nonnative baits. Q Participates in conservation efforts such as river cleanups, vegetation trans-planting, tagging studies and creel surveys. Q Practices safe angling and boating by following the laws and using common sense to prevent injury to self, others or property. Q Protects the environment from boat damage, including prop-scouring of vegetation, wake damage to shorelines, power-loading problems at ramps, or strik-ing animals such as mana-tees or sturgeons. Q Conserves energy and water, knowing both affect local fish and wildlife. “Releasing larger bass is one of the best contri-butions anglers can make toward the future of Florida’s bass fishing,” says Tom Champeau, director of the Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. Even though it’s the right thing to do, it’s nice to have an extra incentive. Hence the TrophyCatch program, which rewards anglers for releasing trophy bass with prizes donated by the fish-ing industry. Just register-ing enrolls anglers into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. Bass caught on live baits or artificial worms often swallow a hook, thus reducing their chances for survival. Biologists rec-ommend setting the hook immediately after a strike, which increases the chance of hooking the fish in the mouth. Land the fish quick-ly without exhausting it. Barbless hooks contribute to easier and quicker releases. If you don’t have a barbless hook, simply pinch down the barbs with fishing pliers. Remember: Smaller hooks do less harm than larger ones; single hooks are better than trebles; and circle hooks are best of all. Don’t use rough or knotted landing nets that cause abrasions as a fish thrashes about and scrapes its mucus, that slimy coating that serves as a primary defense against disease. When releasing bass, be gentle. Grip it by the lower jaw and, if possible, keep it in the water when removing a hook. “Don’t drop or throw a fish back,” advises Champeau. “Instead, lower it gently into the water so it can swim away.” If a fish is taken from the water to measure or photograph, avoid touching its eyes and gills. Support a heavy fish’s body with your other hand if you must lift it out of the water. One of the most crucial rules is to avoid keeping the fish out of water for more than 30 seconds at a time (approxi-mately as long as you hold your breath). So have your camera, scales and measur-ing tape ready to go. You can place the fish back in a livewell or dip it over the side to let it breathe if you need to reset for another photo. The livewell should be aerated, at nearly the same tem-perature as the lake water. Never place fish in chlori-nated tap water. Commercial de-hookers, long-nose pliers or hemo-stats reduce stress. If the fish is hooked too deeply, cut the line and leave the hook. The fish’s digestive juices will erode the hook. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER OUTDOORS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15 & 16, 20136B FRIDAY EVENING FEBRUARY 15, 2013 Comcast Dish DirecTV 6 PM6:307 PM7:308 PM8:309 PM9:3010 PM10:3011 PM11:30 3-ABC 3 -TV20 NewsABC World NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Last Man StandingMalibu Country (N) Shark Tank (N) (:01) 20/20 News at 11Jimmy Kimmel Live 4-IND 4 4 4Chann 4 NewsChann 4 NewsEntertainment Ton.Inside Edition (N) Love-RaymondRules/EngagementBig Bang TheoryBig Bang TheoryThe 10 O’Clock News (N) Chann 4 News(:35) omg!

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15 & 16, 2013 7B7BNascar With NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series set to kick off the 2013 campaign this weekend at DaytonaInternational Speedway with the non-pointsSprint Unlimited on Saturday night followed bypole qualifying for the Daytona 500 on Sunday,much of the focus will be on the new Generation 6race car,which makes its first appearance in acompetitive environment. NASCAR president Mike Helton will be watching as closely as anyone,because he’s the one whowill be responsible for making adjustments if onemanufacturer winds up with a significant advan-tage over its competitors. The new cars are built to more closely resemble the showroom versions they represent,so Fords,Chevrolets and Toyotas all have different shapes.NASCAR has made every effort to ensure that allcars,while having different characteristics,areequal aerodynamically,but the true test won’tcome until there are points and money on the line. Helton said that going into Speedweeks at Daytona,he believes the three manufacturers’products are close aerodynamically. “We gave the manufacturers the aero numbers to match up to and asked them to design a carthat would do that,”he said.“In today’s world,wecan use a lot of science and technology to go intothe design of these cars from a competition aspect.Hopefully we’ve done that correctly,but with theuniqueness of the shapes of these things,we couldget back to the days where we have to adjust spoil-ers or something,but we don’t think so.” In an earlier era,it was almost a weekly occurrence to see representatives of race teams and manufacturers trekking to the NASCAR hauler inthe garage to plead with Helton and other officialsfor rules tweaks to help them overcome disadvan-tages.Those disadvantages,both real and per-ceived,also were discussed and debated in many awater-cooler conversation across the NASCARnation. Helton said that the return of that kind of debate wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing. “The design of the cars and matching up to the showroom cars represents a bit of a throwback ofits own,so going back to arguing over who’s gotthe best aero package and who’s got the besthorsepower is part of the rivalry of our sport,”hesaid.“That’s something we’ve got experience with.It’s not the worst thing.” Helton also said he’ll be watching closely when the Gen-6 car makes its first competitive appear-ance on an intermediate-length track,at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 10. “We want the intermediate-track racing to get better,”he said.“We’d like to figure out how tokeep the guy from getting out by himself and justrunning away from everybody.” But he believes another unpopular kind of racing,one involving the two-car tandems that domi-nated recent races at Daytona and TalladegaSuperspeedway,is a thing of the past with the newcar.“I think it’s gone,”Helton said.“...What we’veseen so far – and what the garage area thinks – isthat it doesn’t work any more.” Helton said the risks involved in tandem racing now far exceed the potential reward. “In testing,we saw two cars hooking up,and one car by itself could run as fast as they could,”he said.“And drivers in the tandem have to relyeven more on each other’s talent than they did inthe past.” NOTEBOOK Diversity effort makes strides NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program gained some traction last week with theannouncements that two of its former partici-pants will be racing full-time this season inthe higher levels of NASCAR. Kyle Larson,who is of Japanese descent,is set to run the full Nationwide Series in a carprepared by Turner Motorsports with veterancrew chief Trent Owens leading the team.Larson is under contract to Sprint Cup carowner Chip Ganassi,who helped put theNationwide deal together. And Darrell Wallace Jr.,one of only a few black drivers in the sport,will race the fullseason in the Camping World Truck Seriesfor Kyle Busch Motorsports while also run-ning some Nationwide Series races for JoeGibbs Racing. Both drivers appear to be getting career breaks not only because they’re fast on the racetrack and part of the diversity program,butbecause they’re handling themselves well onand off the track,as Ganassi pointed out on aNASCAR teleconference last week. “You look to his parents,what kind of people they are,what kind of upbringing hehad,”Ganassi said.“Is he stable in histhought? That usually comes from a stablehousehold. “You really want guys that understand the sport,that have been in the sport for a long time,not looking for a piece of Hollywood,not lookingto be on TMZ at night,just guys that respect thesport and appreciate it and come from a good,solid background with their family.” Team owner Joe Gibbs said in a team release that he has high hopes for Wallace. “This is exciting for Darrell,for Joe Gibbs Racing and really for NASCAR,I believe,”Gibbs said.“NASCAR has made tremendousprogress through their diversity program,and we started our diversity program 10years ago with Reggie White in hopes of pro-viding opportunities to drivers we think havethe ability to grow in our sport … We have agreat deal of confidence in Darrell,and this isa big step in his career.” Wallace,19,worked his way up through NASCAR’s developmental circuit,the K&N ProSeries,where he became the K&N circuit’syoungest and first African-American to win arace,at Greenville-Pickens [S.C.] Speedway in2010,along with winning rookie of the year.Last year,he ran four Nationwide Series racesand recorded three top-10 finishes and a pole,atDover International Raceway. Larson,19,won the 2012 K&N Pro Series East championship in his rookie season inthat division,and also made four TruckSeries starts last year.He finished second atPhoenix after leading 43 laps,and led 48 lapsat Homestead before wrecking with TyDillon.He finished 10th in his series debut atKentucky Speedway and was sixth in his sec-ond start,at Atlanta Motor Speedway.NASCAR to curb start-and-parkThe practice of starting and quickly parking a car in NASCAR races won’t be as lucra-tive this year as it has been in the past.Series officials have whacked money off thebottom positions in the finishing order andmoved that money up to mid-pack. NASCAR president Mike Helton said the change,which is estimated to be about $4,000per position,is NASCAR’s way of trying toreward struggling teams that are trying togain a foothold in the sport while penalizingthose who are only there to collect some cash. “We’re moving the money to kind of reward owners like Tommy Baldwin and FrankieStoddard and David Stremme’s Swan Racinggroup,”he said.“It’s not a lot of money,butit’s a starting point.” Helton added that if the blatant starting and parking continues,more changes couldbe in the offing. “It’s kind of a soft move now,but if it doesn’t work we can take more off the bottom andmove it up,”he said.

In many ways,it has the feel of a reunion,a time for old-timers and a younger generationto gather and share stories from a bygone era. The four Hall of Fame induction ceremonies held to date have provided opportunities forpeople who were once fierce competitors onthe track to put aside any old animosities orrivalries and come together as members ofthe community that is NASCAR. “The really cool thing about the Hall of Fame is … every time they have one of theseit fixes so many things,”said Eddie Wood,whostood on stage last Friday night and inductedhis uncle Leonard Wood.“It fixes relation-ships,and it gives people a chance to saythings that they normally wouldn’t say,wouldn’t be brave enough to say.I know I saidthings I wouldn’t be brave enough to say.” He pointed out how David Pearson,who drove for the Wood Brothers team,andRichard Petty,his chief rival in the 1960s and’70s,both used their Hall inductions to praiseeach other. “Pearson and Petty got to say … ‘You were the best,no,you were the best,’ those kind ofthings,”Wood said.“And I think that’s whatreally makes the Hall of Fame special.” For example,Leonard Wood,the longtime chief mechanic and crew chief for the WoodBrothers No.21 Fords and Mercuries,talkedabout his main rival back in the day,DaleInman,who was crew chief for his cousinRichard Petty. Wood said Inman was “a great team leader, organizer and called the races.He was one ofthe best there was in calling races.He kept upwith everything that was going on … He wasjust a great,intelligent person to call races, knowing when to pit,when to change tires,when not to and all that.He was great atthat.” And Wood also made it clear that the Woods and Pettys were more than just com-petitors on the race track and in the garage. “Even though we were really rivals … at the end of the day they’re the best friendswe’ve got,”he said. It also was noted during the induction of the late Cotton Owens just how close he wasto his one-time driver David Pearson and to arival car owner,Walter “Bud”Moore. Owens’ grandson Kyle Owens,representing the Owens family,spoke of his grandparents’relationship with Pearson and Moore. “I can’t tell you how much these guys meant to them throughout the years,andespecially when their health took a turn forthe worse because those guys came by andsaw them weekly,”Owens said.“It meant somuch to Pop.” Herb Thomas’ son Joel Thomas relayed a side of his late father that showed he wasmuch more than a two-time champion whosewinning percentage of .211 has never beenbettered. “Before he started racing,dad successfully operated his own sawmill,”Thomas said.“Almost 50 years later,he was excited to teachme how to run it.When dad finally retiredfrom racing in 1962,he returned to the farmwhere he worked with his family for manyyears. “Those were wonderful times.I often rode with him to the market when it was time tosell.When his crops brought top dollar at auc-tion,I could see his satisfaction and content-ment.” Buddy Baker,a great racer in his own right and an accomplished broadcaster,talkedafterward about how nervous he was going onstage to induct his hero and father,the latetwo-time NASCAR champion Buck Baker. “When I started racing he was my hero, and when he passed away he was still myhero,”Baker said.“That’s pressure.It’s somuch pressure because you want to do it rightand make sure that everybody knows to mehe was the champion on the race track,hewas the champion in life.” Rusty Wallace,the youngest of the inductees and someone who is rarely fazed,was obviously emotional as he walked onstage.And for someone who was known forhis brashness for most of his career,heseemed quite humbled. “I look out in this crowd and I see some of the biggest stars in history.I look at RobertYates,one of the best engine builders in theworld,Ricky Rudd,Jack Roush,MichaelWaltrip,big winner at Daytona,Darrell[Waltrip],everybody,”he said.“I am humbledthat I’ve made it here.I’m humbled that I’mstanding up here,and I can’t thank everybodyenough for selecting me to be in the Hall ofFame.” Hall of Fame inductees and family members pose on s tage during the 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Friday in Charlotte,N.C.(NASCAR photo)Class tiesAll eyes on Gen 6 cars as competitive debut nearsHall of Fame night highlights racing’s bonds Rusty Wallace and Leonard Wood at Friday’s NASCAR Hall of Fame induction ceremony.(NASCAR photo) Preseason Thunder testing at Daytona International Speedway on January 10.(NASCAR photo)
