By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comL iving history unfold-ed before the eyes of spectators as about 2,000 re-enactors dressed as Union and Confederate troops performed Civil War battle tactics at the Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park for the 37th re-enact-ment of the Battle of Olustee on Sunday. The show began with skirmishes the length of the battle-field. Confederate skirmishers found the main Union force and dropped back to await reinforce-ments. The Union cavalry rushed from behind the pines at the rear of the battlefield. The Confederates pushed forward using a square of tightly packed infantrymen to counter the cavalry. The Union artillery broke the Confederate square with blasts that sent shockwaves felt in the stands. Planted pyro-technics sent clouds of dirt and scrub soaring as high as 40 feet, raining down dust on the Confederate infantry and break-ing the Confederate square. The Confederates formed battlelines against the advanc-ing Union troops, concentrating fire on the flanks of the Union line. Gun smoke poured from both lines sending up clouds of gray. As the Union flanks were depleted, the Confederates fell back because ammuni-tion supplies were low. The Union advanced thinking the Confederates had lost. As ammunition arrived and reserve forces were brought forward, the Confederates advanced in a last push.

The comments from Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, came near the end of what is expected to be the final meeting of the Senate Gaming Committee until at least the end of the legislative session. Thrasher was responding to concerns among some lawmakers that the issue of Internet cafes might not be addressed in the session that begins March 5. “There will be a bill that places a moratorium on Internet cafes for this year for consideration,” said Thrasher, who chairs the powerful Senate Rules Committee. Legislators grappled with the issue of Internet cafes, which critics argue are illegal games similar to slot machines, in 2012 but were unable to come to an agree-ment. Some lawmakers want the busi-nesses banned altogether; others simply want to regulate them. The industry says it offers computerized versions of legal sweepstakes. It wasn’t clear how wide-ranging Thrasher’s moratorium would be; he didn’t elaborate on the proposal at the com-mittee meeting and didn’t immediately return a message left at his office seeking comment.

The name of the FHP campaign is “Hit and Run, Bad to Worse.” Sgt. Tracy Hisler-Pace, public information officer for FHP, held a news conference at FHP Troop B headquarters in Lake City on Monday. She discussed unsolved cases and presented statistics about the growing problem of hit-and-run crashes across the state. In Columbia County, 188 hitand-run crashes were reported to the FHP in 2012. Hisler-Pace said those numbers include minor crashes involving property damage, which did not result in injuries. In 2012, 168 people were killed in hit-and-run crashes statewide.Plan Bfor FCATsought TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s new education commissioner says the state needs a “Plan B” in case the anticipated replacement for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, fails to materialize or is delayed. Commissioner Tony Bennett told the State Board of Education at the panel’s meeting Monday in Orlando that he’ll offer such a plan in the next couple months. The board also received a letter from Gov. Rick Scott pitching his proposal to give all teachers $2,500 pay raises. The board had no immediate response. The Republican governor defends his break from GOP orthodoxy. Republicans have in recent years promoted merit pay as opposed to across-the-board raises. One reason Scott cites is that Florida’s teachers have earned the highest overall grade from the National Council on Teacher Quality.

HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. M indy McCready threatened to kill her-self after losing custo-dy of her sons earlier this month, yet she was allowed to leave a court-ordered drug rehabilitation program days before she apparently killed herself, her ex-boyfriend said Monday. Billy McKnight, who was in a long, rocky relationship with McCready and who is the father of her oldest child, Zander, said the 37-year-old mother of two stayed in the in-patient substance abuse treatment center for about 18 hours before being allowed to walk free. Authorities say McCready died in an apparent suicide Sunday at her home in Heber Springs, a vacation community about 65 miles north of Little Rock. Sheriff Marty Moss said McCready was found dead on the front porch where her boyfriend, musician David Wilson, died last month of a gunshot wound to the head. Investigators are investigating his death as a suicide, but haven’t yet determined the cause of death. McKnight, speaking to The Associated Press phone from Tampa, wondered how McCready was allowed to go free, given all the tur-moil in her life. “That was a big mistake on the part of whoever released her,” McKnight said. “... She was in a ter-rible state of mind. ... There’s no way she should be out by herself in a lonely house with nothing but booze and pills. That was a really, really bad mistake, and the end result is tragic.” Neighbors reported hearing two shots Sunday afternoon when they called the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities found Wilson’s dog dead next to McCready’s body. “Based on what we have found at the scene at this time, we do believe that she took the life of the dog that we are being told by family members belonged to Mr. Wilson before she took her own life,” Sheriff Marty Moss said. McCready’s sons were put in foster care and she was ordered into rehab earlier this month after McCready’s father expressed con-cern. He told a judge his daughter had stopped taking care of herself and her children after Wilson’s death and she was abusing alcohol and prescription drugs. McCready attempted suicide at least three times previously and her fragile state of mind was always a concern to family and friends who cared for her. “This didn’t come as a surprise, although shocking,” McKnight said. “She was bitter. She was bitter at the world and she was bitter at herself, and she could just never shake it. She could never beat it.”‘Flipper,’ ‘Lassie’ trainer turned activist dies SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A former Hollywood animal trainer who trained Flipper and Lassie and later devoted her life to protecting per-forming animals after seeing wide-spread abuse in the entertainment industry has died. The Performing Animal Welfare Society says Pat Derby died Friday at her Northern California home at age 69. She had throat cancer.

AROUND FLORIDA Scratch-off sales set record TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Lottery says Scratch-Off ticket sales have set a new record. The Florida Lottery announced Monday that sales for the week ending Feb. 17 exceeded $64.7 million. That breaks last week’s record of $63 mil-lion, making it the highest single-week Scratch-Off ticket sales ever achieved in the Lottery’s quarter-century existence. Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell says in a state-ment she’s “thrilled to see players’ overwhelm-ing response” the games. Their mission is to “maxi-mize revenue for educa-tion and record high sales ensure that Florida’s edu-cation system continues to receive these benefits.”Man arrested after arson threat PLANT CITY — A southwest Florida man has been arrested after authorities say he poured lighter fluid around his home and started a fire in the bedroom of two young children. Sheriff’s deputies said 44-year-old Randy Lisenby was fighting with a woman he was living with on Saturday and threatened to set their Plant City home on fire. He alleg-edly poured the flammable liquid around the doorway and some of it splashed on two young children. According to a report, the woman and children left the home. The Tampa Bay Times reports Lisenby started a fire in the children’s bedroom, burning a rug and blankets, then tried to light a fire at the back door before deputies talk him outside. He is charged with arson, aggravated assault and child abuse.Man charged in infant’s death OCALA — A central Florida man has been charged with murder in the death of his 6-week-old daughter. Marion County Sheriff’s Office officials said Jeremy Murray told them he was sleeping with his daughter when she began kick-ing. He said he got up to take her to her bassinet and accidentally tripped and the baby fell from his arms. The child had mul-tiple skull fractures when she was brought to the hospital on January 30th. The Ocala Star Banner reports the baby’s grand-mother came home from work and found the baby unresponsive on the floor and called 911. The medical examiner reported the baby’s inju-ries were not consistent with Murray’s statement and also detected signs of possible past bruises. Murray was also charged Friday with aggra-vated child abuse.Lawmakers’ gift ban may be eased TALLAHASSEE — Sen. Tom Lee says he’s heard all the complaints about the gift ban law passed seven years ago: Some say it’s made it more expen-sive for lawmakers to do their jobs. Others say it led to the abuse of political committees to skirt the ban. They say it’s awkward for lawmakers to even accept a cup of coffee. “It’s been held responsible for everything except 9/11,” said Lee, whose push to end the influence of money in the legislative process led to the law that bans lawmakers and their staffs from accepting any-thing from lobbyists and the groups they represent. Lee was Senate president when the law took effect and left the chamber later that year. Now back in the Senate, he wants to tweak the law to address issues some lawmakers say stifle routine interac-tion with constituents. “We’re trying to do the best we can in an imper-fect process,” Lee said. Lee plans to submit an amendment to a Senate ethics bill (SB 2) to allow some exemptions to the gift ban such as allowing lawmakers to attend func-tions by an organization and to accept food and bev-erages of nominal value. He also would require law-makers to submit a public notice of plans to attend an event and report atten-dance afterward. It would cap how much a lawmaker can accept per group.Woman charged in adoption scam UMATILLA — A woman is facing grand theft charges after authori-ties say she fleeced several adoption agencies. Marion County sheriff’s detectives said 33-year-old Deana Marie Day made an agreement through a law firm to give her child up for adoption. One firm allegedly paid her more than $6,000 in living expenses. But authorities said while Day was collecting money from that firm, she was also receiving money from other firms for the same services. The child is scheduled to be born later this month. Day was charged with adoption fraud and grand theft.

Monday afternoon, she told her story about recovering from sexual abuse and the healing process to Columbia County Tax Collector staff members as she promoted Laurens Kids. Laurens Kids is Books nonprof it organization designed to make Florida a safer place through advocacy for the passage of state laws that protect and help victims heal and become survivors. The informational session took place Monday in the adult education building with more than 20 employees from the tax collectors office present. A video was shown giving details about the nonprofit agency, and afterwards, Book gave a short presentation and answered ques tions from the tax collectors office staff. According to Books statistics: 1 in 3 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18; 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18; 1 in 5 children are solicited sexually while on the Internet before the age of 18; 30 percent of the time sexual abuse is never reported; and Nearly 70 percent of all reported sexual assaults occur to children 17 years old or younger. Ronnie Brannon, Columbia County tax collector, said the ses sion was an in-service training day for his staff. They have two such sessions each year. He said the staff normally reviews new procedures, policies and upcom ing legislation during the inservice training, but this year heard presentations from Rita Dopp of the Suwannee Valley United Way, Donna Fagan of Another Way and Book. This is a good cause in help ing to prevent and deal with child sexual abuse, Brannon said. Its a worthwhile cause. He said people can voluntari ly contribute to Laurens Kids when they renew their driver licenses or purchase their vehi cles license plates. Book, the founder and CEO of the Laurens Kids Foundation, said she decided to make the presentation locally after speak ing to Kyle Keen, director of ad valorem taxes with the Columbia County Tax Collectors Office. I just talked about the impor tance of telling if somebody is being abused, how to prevent sexual abuse, the different signs that people need to be aware of to catch sexual abuse and get ting people excited about com ing out and walking with us, she said. From March 19 to April 23, Book will hold her fourth annual Laurens Kids Walk in My Shoes, a journey from the Florida Keys to the Panhandle, concluding on the steps of the old capitol in Tallahassee. April is Childhood Sexual Abuse Awareness Month but its important to let people know 95 percent of sexual abuse is preventable with education and awareness, Book said. We need everybody, not just kids, not just parents and not just people with kids, we need everybody being aware of sexual abuse and whats out there and what the signs are. Its not only our moral obligation, but its our legal obli gation, if we suspect a child is being harmed, to make that call to the Department of Children and Families. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Lauren Book, founder and CEO of Laurens Kids, gives a presentation to staff members of the Columbia County Tax Collectors Office during an in-service training day Monday. the retreating Union Army disappeared into the pine trees. The actual Battle of Olustee, fought Feb. 20 1864, saw 5,500 Union troops fight an estimated 5,200 Confederates. The battle lasted more than two hours, and was a clear Confederate victory. Hisler-Pace said drivers leave the scene of a crash for a number of reasons. Sometimes they are just scared. They panic, she said. They are possi bly impaired and obviously know if they stop they are going to get into trouble. However, leaving the scene of a crash heightens that problem. Thats the reason the name of our campaign is Hit and Run, Bad to Worse. State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister attended the conference and said leaving the scene of a crash result ing in death is a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. At one time, the penalty for leav ing the scene of an accident was less than being con victed of DUI manslaugh ter, he said. They changed the pen alties several years ago, Siegmeister said. Some people leave the scene of an accident because they have a suspended license or no license, are wanted by law enforcement or do not have insurance, Hisler-Pace said. Hisler-Pace said drivers involved in a crash should stop their vehicle and pull off the roadway if possi ble. Next, she said, drivers should help anyone injured in the crash, and then call law enforcement. After law enforcement has been notified, col lect names and addresses of drivers and witnesses, and write down the make, model and tag numbers of all vehicles involved. She said it could be help ful to make a rough drawing of the scene and positions of the vehicles, and do not accept claim settlements at the crash scene. She also said it was important to stay calm. As a driver it is your responsibility to remain at the crash scene, HislerPace said. Witnesses of hit-and-run crashes should immediate ly call law enforcement and give as detailed of a descrip tion of the make, model tag number and color of the vehicle as possible, HislerPace said. Also if possible, describe the driver of the vehicle. Since January 2010, Columbia County has seen two hit-and-run fatali ties. While both cases were solved. Hisler-Pace high lighted some neighboring counties unsolved hit-andrun deaths. Steve W. Mathis died after being struck by a vehicle near his Suwannee County home around 9:35 p.m. on Sept. 27, 2012. He was walking south in the northbound lane of County Road 137 when a black 2000 Pontiac Sunfire two door struck him and continued driving north. Mathis died at the scene. Florida Highway Patrol found the Pontiac Sunfire about 1.5 miles north on a different road. The tag was missing and all items were removed except for a rosary hanging from the rear-view mirror. Investigators tracked the owner of the car to Hamilton County, but he had sold the car to someone else about a month before the vehicle was involved in the traffic fatality. However, the Pontiac Sunfire had not been registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles. Fingerprints, DNA and other evidence was recovered from the black Pontiac and is being processed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Siegmeister said. Hisler-Pace asked any one with information about the crash to contact the Florida Highway Patrol at 754-6270. Also, FHP cre ated a website with infor mation on unsolved hit-andrun where members of the public can search by county the cases in their communi ties. The website is www. flhsmv.gov/fhp/hitrun/. COURTESY A car driven in a hit and run in Suwannee County. The driver is still sought. The Coalition of Internet Cafes, an industry group, reacted cautiously to the statement. From the beginning, we have advocated for increased regulation over an outright ban, agreed that technology has outpaced current law and that there may be some bad oper ators in the industry, spokeswoman Sarah Bascom said in a statement. Depending upon exact details of a proposed moratorium bill, if it allows for existing law abiding operators and employers to continue in their exist ing capacity, we believe our coalition will support legislation along these lines. Thrashers bill could be the only one dealing with gambling to be seriously considered by lawmakers. Legislative leaders have indicated that they want to put off dealing with most of the issues -including wheth er to allow casino-style destination resorts in Florida -until the 2014 legislative session. Senate Gaming Committee Chairman Garrett Richter, R-Naples, told lawmakers that the panel would commission a study and then spend time gathering public input, perhaps at a handful of hearings across the state. This is probably going to be the last time we meet this session, Richter said. That would also presumably cut off consideration of most gambling legis lation, like a bill to allow pari-mutuel facilities to stop running dog races, which lose money, but continue to offer profitable games like poker.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman T o appreciate the foolishness of the decision to remove wrestling from the Summer Olympics beginning in 2020, consider this: race walking is still considered a sport more worthy to be included in the quadrennial interna-tional competition, a ruling only Monty Python’s Minister of Silly Walks would endorse. The International Olympic Committee executive board did not offer an explanation for dropping a sport that began as part of the first ancient games in 708 B.C. and the first modern Olympiad in 1896. A competition that has a two millennia of association with the Olympic ideal deserves more respect than being given the bum’s rush off the medal stand. The IOC dropped wrestling as it pared the number of sports to 25 for the Summer Games. But it would seem the demise of wrestling, which has govern-ing bodies in 180 countries and 100,000 participants in the United States, simply was not telegenic enough or blessed with enough recognizable stars for today’s soap opera backstory-driven Olympics. Read: not enough visual excitement, or competitors named Hulk. Adding insult to injury, wrestling was smacked down by the IOC over field hockey, tae kwon do and the pentathlon. Wrestling still has time to lobby the IOC to reconsider its decision. Milo of Croton is regarded as the greatest Olympic wrestler of the ancient era, winning five times between 532 and 516 B.C. But now that legacy must grapple with competing against canoeing and rock climbing to remain part of the Olympic Games. The Olympic creed, in part, reads: “The essential thing is not to have con-quered, but to have fought well.” For the sport of wrestling, though, fighting the good fight for more than 2,000 years wasn’t enough.

Across the state of Florida, more than 400 economic, workforce and community developers are going to work every day with one goal -help make their community a better place to live, both now and for years to come. Florida’s economic development professionals live in all 67 counties and hold positions with our 24 work-force boards, our 28 community and state colleges and Florida’s 12 state universities. They work with our utilities, ports, airports and indus-trial authorities. They work for local governments, private companies and non-profit agencies. They come from a variety of professional backgrounds, including business, engineering, real estate and technology, and they are highly educated and professionals in their own right. Florida’s economic development professionals are the ones trained and experienced to nurture these businesses on a daily basis and keep them strong by providing informa-tion to stay competitive in a global marketplace and to plan for a growth trajectory that creates jobs and pro-vides workers valuable training that increases their earning potential. They are connected to regional and state organizations with big-picture views that give a heads up when a potential local, state or national barrier is on the horizon -or when a potential opportunity is on the way. Keeping up with new laws, growth trends and funding sources is all part of their daily responsibilities. The economic development toolkit from which they operate contains programs and tools that reflect the vision of each individual community -how they want to grow and what indus-tries they want to attract, grow and retain. An important part of that process is identifying targeted industry sectors by mapping a community’s assets such as its talent pipeline, research-and-development centers, transportation infrastructure and centers of employment. These sec-tors often reflect higher wage indus-tries on growth trajectories that will produce jobs and long-term invest-ment for the region. It is important to note, however, that economic development profes-sionals are not the final decision makers when a program from the incentive toolkit is included in a local job creation project. There is a well-proven process in place to determine the viability of a project, its fit with the community’s vision and its quantifiable economic impact before it ever gets to local elected officials for approval. It is the job of the economic developer to perform due diligence on every conceivable aspect of a project. In fact, the elected officials who are making the final decision on whether or not to support some aspect of a project normally know only the mer-its of the project by a code name, not the actual company name, protect-ing against any bias or impropriety. While this practice occasionally aggravates our friends in the media, we know it is essential to preserve the integrity of the process and prevent “picking winners and losers.” It has been suggested that economic development in and of itself may not be a necessary part of the process of growing and attracting business or creating jobs. In reality, economic development is the engine that allows people to choose Florida as their home and bring families and businesses to our state to thrive and prosper. The great diversity of Florida’s communities, which take on distinct personalities, due in part to opportunities nurtured through economic development efforts, is an element that sets Florida apart. Even through a recession and continued economic uncertainty, economic development efforts have been fruitful because of sensible poli-cies that are crafted and coordinated at the local and state levels. Elected officials at all levels seek input from our well-equipped professionals to create good policy that encourages job creation and capital investment in their markets. It is a hallmark of our profession to bring leaders from government, business and educa-tion together in a way that allows for single-minded effectiveness in seek-ing the best for a community. In a global economy, companies can go anywhere because their customers are everywhere. Florida must be prepared to compete and have the proper business climate, effective economic development tool-kit and well-equipped professionals to articulate the core competencies that are attractive to an expanding or relocating business.4AOPINIONO nly five cars had arrived at the park-ing lot that Sunday. I was early. So I just sat there — warmed by the early-afternoon sun, shielded from the wind — and looked out over the cem-etery next to Belmont Baptist Church. In a few minutes, a blond, sad-looking, flop-eared dog ambled past headstones bearing names familiar in the rural Northeast Georgia community: Richardson, Carlyle, Maddox, Edmonds, Hayes, Hudgins, Lancaster, Hall, Smith. He stopped at a freshly dug grave and lay down, resting his head on his paws, as though he were paying his last respects. Thirty minutes before the service, the parking lot was full. Folks who had known Herbert Allen Hudgins had come to pay their own last respects and to tell the family what this man had meant to them. “He was a giant of the faith,” the preacher, Bill Compton, said. He certainly was — a Christian without somber-ness and self-righteous-ness. Herbert Hudgins liked to laugh as much as anybody I knew. He once recalled a time as a boy when he and Alton, his younger brother, were laughing at the supper table. Papa Hudgins, a rather stern man, told them to be quiet. But Alton laughed one more time — and got a whipping. Herbert decided things would be different when he had his own family. “There will be laughter at our table,” John quoted his daddy. And there was laughter. Herbert’s funeral was filled with laughter. Grandson Barry Latty had his share of funny stories, because he often was the one who hauled his grandparents around. His grandfather was practi-cally blind from macular degeneration, so when his grandmother, Willene, needed new underwear, Barry drove them both to Walmart. Granddaddy stayed in the car and watched the traffic while Barry went in with Grandmother to make sure she got the right size drawers. In his younger days, though, it was Granddaddy who hauled Barry around, sometimes in a wagon pulled by a mule. Riding to the gar-den in a wagon, Barry said in his eulogy, was the grandest thing of all. Herbert’s paying job then was reading meters for the power company. He worked hard. And when he got home, he worked some more: tending his garden, helping Willene, helping neighbors, and, as a prelude to Meals on Wheels, delivering plates of home-cooked food to local friends. He never missed church, and the only shape-note singing he missed at Belmont was the day before his funeral. Herbert was the last of my father’s siblings. He was 95. He was the only one of the five who never left Belmont. What did the city have that he needed? Nothing but a job reading meters, and sometimes Walmart. * *As the sun sank lower in the sky and the wind picked up, Belmont’s new-est grave was smoothed over and flowers were placed. Herbert leaves behind four children, eight grandchildren, three step grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and three step great-grandchildren. His message to them all: Love God and be joyful. Herbert leaves behind stories, laughter for others to enjoy Phil Hudginsphudgins@cninewspapers.com Q Phil Hudgins is senior editor of Community Newspapers Inc.

By Jennifer Chasteen Special to the Reporter A s temperatures plunged into the lower 20s and frost gathered in the early morning hours on the Olustee Battlefield site, James Permane roused his men for the inevitable defeat at the hands of Confederate troops. For the past 10 years, Permane has portrayed the role of Union Brig. Gen. Truman Seymour, who was defeated by Confederate Brig. Gen. Joseph Finegan at Olustee. On Feb 20, 1864, Union troops on their way to cut off Confederate supply routes, marched through the swamps towards Lake City only be overwhelmed by Confederate troops at Olustee. With casualties amounting to 1,861 Union sol diers, Seymour retreated back to Jacksonville. For Permane, it has been a life long passion to retell history, even if it means repeated defeat. Ive want ed to re-enact since I was a child, he said. I grew up as the Civil War centennial was wrapping up and there was a lot of press. I really got the bug when I started to read. I read every book I could find on the subject. Since then, Ive always wanted to experience as much of the Civil War period as possible. While I was attending the University of Florida, my interest was renewed. In 1985, I met Eric Hague in a Florida history class at Santa Fe Community College. Eric invited me to join the local Gainesville Civil War re-enactment group, Co. D, 1st Florida Infantry. According to Permane, the 1st Florida, under the command of Dr. Ray Giron, helped start the annual re-enactment of the Battle of Olustee and was the host unit for many years. Permane was involved in the inner workings of the event from when he joined the group in 1985. Permanes group has portrayed Federal troops at Olustee since the beginning. After Girons retire ment, and after Girons subse quent replacement, Brian Kepner, resigned, Permane was appointed the Federal Army commander. And through a decade of unpre dictable February weather, through rain, frost and temperatures dipping into the teens, Permane has lead the charge of Union troops against the Confederates time after time. I re-enact a number of events throughout the year. Right now, we are involved in the 150th anniversary cycle of Civil War events. This year we will be doing the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and the Battle of Chickamauga, in addi tion to the events we support on a regular basis. Next year will be the Sesquicentennial of the Battle of Olustee. I have enjoyed every sec ond of it, Permane said. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Sarasota resident James Permane (right) has been portraying Union Gen. Truman Seymour in Battle of Olustee re-enactments for the past 10 years.

The teams have been in the same district since 2006 and are playing in the most important game in the series. The Red Devils host the Indians at 7 p.m. today in the second round of the playoffs. Fort White (15-5) won its first-ever basketball playoff game, 63-62, at Mount Dora High on Thursday. Williston (22-7) had an easier time with South Sumter High, beating the Raiders 72-54.

Tiger wrestlers place at stateBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High came away with two top-five finishes at the FHSAA Finals state wrestling meet at The Lakeland Center on Saturday. Cole Schreiber lost a 3-2 decision to Donovan Hough of Armwood High in the final of the 113-pound weight class. Schreiber’s runner-up status came after he placed third in 2012 and sixth in 2011. He also qualified for state as a freshman. Kaleb Warner dopped an 8-6 decision to Daniel Preciado of Miami Springs High in Saturday’s wrestlebacks. Warner made the medal round where he defeated Zac German of Harmony High, 7-3, for fifth place in the 126-pound weight class. Warner was making his first trip to state, as was Daniel Devers who went 2-2 in the 160-pound weight class. The performance of the three Tigers earned Columbia 35 team points and 14th place in the state. The meet was won by Springstead High with 98 points. Lake Gibson High was second with 94.5 points and Olympic Heights High was third with 93 points. Columbia’s wrestlers took on Springstead wrestlers in three matches and the Tigers won all three. Schreiber beat Mike McDonald of Springstead in the semifinals to avenge two losses to the Eagles’ wrestler in the A.J. Jones Memorial Invitational hosted by Osceola High.

On Sunday, he did better than that. He won it. Merrick hit two clutch shots that led to par in a sud-den-death playoff and won the Northern Trust Open on Sunday when Charlie Beljan missed a 5-foot par putt on the second extra hole. It was the first PGA Tour win for Merrick, who went to school at UCLA. Merrick closed with a 69. Beljan holed an 18-foot birdie on the 18th hole for a 67. Lake City’s Blayne Barber closed with a 74 and tied for 43rd at 1-over 285. He won $23,760.

DEAR ABBY: While I always enjoy your column, I thought your advice to “Wants My Space” (Dec. 14), whose son “Dustin” moved away five years ago and expects her to keep his room as he left it, was off the mark. I would have told Dustin what I have told both of my daughters several times: It is not “your” room; I merely let you use it. Not only is “Wants” not obligated to use her home as a storage facility, she’s doing her son a dis-service by doing it under these circumstances. At 24, he needs to learn that if he wants a service, it’s his obligation to procure it. There are plenty of businesses that can fulfill his needs at a reason-able price. -MATT IN PROVIDENCE FORGE, VA. DEAR MATT: For the most part, readers agreed with you, and they offered their own “take” on how to accomplish the removal of the young man’s belong-ings: DEAR ABBY: An acquaintance of mine had a similar problem with his son. The son expected his dad to provide storage space at no charge for an indefinite length of time. My friend told his son: “No way! You get it out of here within six months, or I’ll sell it and keep the money for storage fees.” He didn’t think his father would actually do it. Well, he was wrong. And now the younger siblings don’t even think of leaving any of their stuff at the father’s house. -SHIRLEY IN CHULA VISTA, CALIF. DEAR ABBY: My parents, while not upset with still having their four adult children’s belongings in their home, solved their dilemma in a unique way. One Christmas we all gathered at their house and were delighted to find heaps of presents under the tree. Concerned that our folks had way over-spent, imagine our sur-prise when we unwrapped the packages and found all of our own belongings! It was an inventive and effective way to clear out the attic and basement. We still talk about it to this day -a warm Christmas memory. -KATIE IN NEWARK, DEL. DEAR ABBY: “Wants” is blessed that Dustin voiced his desire for his mom to keep his stuff. My mother continued asking me if I wanted my stuff for years. I said no, until one day, yes, I did. My parents are no longer alive, and I treasure the little stuffed dog that was my very first Christmas present. -IRENE IN OWOSSO, MICH. DEAR ABBY: Dustin should either pay rent to his mother or move his stuff out. If he doesn’t, he has abandoned it and she can dispose of it as she sees fit, since it’s her house to do with as she pleases. In all fairness, a deadline is reasonable, but it’s been five YEARS -why give him six more months? Enough mollycoddling. -ENOUGH IS ENOUGH DEAR ABBY: Dustin may be lucky his mom wants his stuff out. My mom insisted on keeping my room exactly as I had left it as a shrine. I was glad not to have to move all my coin, toy and stamp collections and the other things from my first 18 years. However, subsequently Mom allowed a young male relative to use my room, and he lost, stole or destroyed all of my memo-ries. I was and am still sad, but I never told my mom ‘cause “that’s life.” -CHARLIE IN FLORIDA DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t share personal secrets. Offer an alterna-tive if someone doesn’t like the way your work turns out. Being adaptable and versatile will help you find a way to please everyone without going over budget. Romance is highlighted. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t rely on someone making impossible promis-es. A practical outlook will allow you to save time and bypass the inconvenience that will result if you allow someone else to take care of your responsibilities. Take control. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put greater emphasis on what you can offer and how you can use your skills, talents and knowl-edge to your best ability. Someone is likely to with-hold information or try to mislead you regarding a job. Don’t be pressured into making an unneces-sary donation. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Speak up and share your thoughts and ideas, and you will get a warm response from friends, family and peers. A social or work-related event will bring you in contact with someone who is impressed with what you can do or have to say. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take care of your domestic responsibilities. What you do for those who count on you may not reward you, but in the end your kindness and generosity will pay off. Invest in some-thing that will improve your assets and add to your comfort. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get down to business and focus on whatever task needs to be done. Avoid interference from anyone by being discreet and secretive. An emotional matter will spin out of con-trol. Do your best to stay calm and focused. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take a short trip if it will lead to knowledge, experience or the chance to make new friends or meet potential collab-orative partners. Love and romance are in the stars. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick close to home and take the time to make your surroundings more comfortable and adaptable to your lifestyle. You don’t have to overspend and shouldn’t let anyone pres-sure you into something you don’t need or want. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Prepare to answer questions and back up your reasons for doing things your way. A prob-lem with a friend, relative or neighbor will escalate if you aren’t prepared to compromise. Prepare to make necessary changes. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Familiar people and places will put you at ease and guide you in a positive direction. Back away from anyone show-ing signs of instability, excess or unpredictability. Professional gains can be made with the use of a little ingenuity. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Put more time and effort into selfand home-improvement proj-ects. Keep the changes you make within budget. Your ability to make some-thing ordinary trendy will be appreciated. Consider turning one of your ideas into a profitable service or product. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t exaggerate. You have to stick to the truth and be prepared to define what your motives are. Try to keep your conver-sations simple and your plans moderate. You can make headway, but dedica-tion and thriftiness will be required. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

She learned long ago to not care what people think about her, to tune out the critics and plug away at her race craft and at building the Danica empire. All of that should help her in the pressure cooker of Daytona this week. After all, shes used to the spotlight more than almost any driver in history. She already has a major accomplishment to tuck in her belt: She is the first woman in history to win the pole at NASCARs top level. That it came at the Daytona 500, The Great American Race, is somehow fitting because it is Patrick. The face of auto racing to many casual fans is now going to be the face of NASCAR every day this week leading into Sundays season-opener. It comes during a rebirth for the 30-year-old Patrick. Something shifted last season, when she realized a happy ending wasnt going to come in her seemingly picture-perfect life. All the effort and energy dedicated to maintaining Danicamania wasnt making her happy. So she made significant life changes, splitting from her 47-year-old husband after seven years of marriage. In January came confirmation of what everyone in NASCAR already assumed she was dating fellow Sprint Cup rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr., a cowboy-hat wearing Mississippi native who takes her to Professional Bull Riding and gave her her own blinged-out cowgirl belt buckle. Patrick came into the season with a new man, a new outlook on life and a determination to be happy on and off the track. Where that takes her is anyones guess because Patrick, so certain all those years she was a race car driver and had no interest in having children, is suddenly murky on motherhood. I dont know. I always used to say no. Now, I dont know. Im in a whole new situation now, she told The Associated Press I do know I wouldnt com promise my career. I would not stop racing for that. If I did want to stop racing for that, then I would lose my passion for racing and it would be that point in time when I would want to stop racing. Seemingly icy all those years, Patrick is suddenly an open book. Shes done a total 180 and is putting herself out there much like a head-over-heels-in-love schoolgirl. People tell me Ive changed. Maybe. Im happy, she said. You get kind of giddy about it, almost. Ricky and I like talking about each other. But life is just simpler now. I feel like I dont have to think as much. There was always an element of me that felt like I had to do the right thing all the time. Now I feel like I want to be me. I want to be relaxed, less calculated. My return on investment was not right, and I am done overthinking things. If it seems as though Patrick has an opportunity at a fresh start, she is adamant that is not how she views this period of change. I think everything you do lasts. It is who you are and where youve been and I wouldnt be here today if not for all the things Ive done up until this point, she said. I always tell everyone, kids or adults, to just be yourself and be honest and I felt like I wasnt doing that myself.
