By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comFirst term U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, campaigned as a tea party Republican who opposed big government pro-grams like President Obama’s health care reform act. At a town hall meeting in Lake City on Tuesday, he said he plans to “neuter it and take the bark out” of “Obamacare.” Yoho, who before winning his seat in Congress was a large animal veterinarian for 28 years, gave an update on his first 45 days in Washington, D.C., and answered questions from area residents at the School Board Administrative Complex. He compared the health care reform act to Social Security, Medicare and the Postal Service — other government-run ser-vices that he said are going broke. “When we sat down with people, they said they cannot be sal-vaged, all we can do is put Band-Aids on them to extend the life,” Yoho said. “... Do you really want health care that way?” Yoho said he plans on attacking and weakening parts of the health care law, and he would not support proposed legislation requiring additional background checks for gun purchases because he’s a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Yoho said he wants to prevent gun violence, but he thinks addi-tional background checks would not be the right way to go. “I stand 100 percent with the president on curbing gun vio-lence; how we go about that we are going to differ,” he said. Yoho said guns need to be kept out of the hands of crimi-nals but through laws already in place. “We have background checks. Let’s use them to the fullest extent that we can,” he said. The most pressing issue for the 113th Congress is the sched-uled sequestration of govern-ment programs. The plan calls for 50 percent cuts to defense and 50 percent cuts to discre-tionary spending. Yoho called the sequestration “bad, bad politics” and said the process is bad for America. He said one of the reasons he ran was because important issues had been put off by career politicians for too long and he couldn’t stand to hear the term “kicking the can down the road” anymore. “You guys, like me, want to stomp on the can and flatten it out so it doesn’t roll anymore,” he said. “And put some action Opinion ................ 4APeople.................. 2AObituaries .............. 5A Advice & Comics ......... 4B Puzzles ................. 2B TODAY IN PEOPLE Dr. Drew under scrutiny. 67 37 Mostly sunny WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterLAKECITYREPORTER.COM CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Vol. 138, No. 276 1A COMING THURSDAY Local news roundup. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2013 | YOUR COMMUNI TY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75¢By JIM KUHNHENNAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Ten days before a new deadline for broad, automatic govern-ment spending cuts, the sense of urgency that surrounded other recent fiscal crises is absent. Government agencies are pre-paring to absorb an $85 billion hit to their budgets, and politicians, at least for now, seem willing to accept the consequences. President Barack Obama, back from a Florida golfing weekend, warned Tuesday that “people will lose their jobs” if Congress doesn’t act. But lawmakers weren’t in ses-sion to hear his appeal, and they aren’t coming back to work until next week. Still dividing the two sides are sharp differences over whether tax increases, which Obama wants and Republicans oppose, should be part of a budget deal. Obama cautioned that if the immediate spending cuts — known as sequestration — occur, the full range of government will feel the effects. Among those he listed: furloughed FBI agents, reductions in spending for communities to pay police, firefighters and teachers, and decreased ability to respond to threats around the world. “So far at least, the ideas that the Republicans have proposed ask noth-ing of the wealthiest Americans or the biggest corporations,” Obama said at a White House event against a backdrop of firefighters and other emergency per-sonnel. “So the burden is all on the first Little urgency to avoid cuts Politicians seem willing to accept consequences as sequestration nears.

During Tuesday night’s meeting, City Council unani-mously voted to reclassify the captain positions. Both posi-tions are currently vacant. Police Chief Argatha Gilmore did not attend the meeting, and city officials did not say whether they planned to fill the positions internally or hire following a search for quali-fied applicants. City Manager Wendell Johnson said one of the cap-tain positions, for the assistant chief, will be at a higher grade of pay — approximately $6,000 more than the other captain position. About $3,000 was added to the salary for that position, while about $3,000 was taken from the other. The salary range for the assistant chief’s position is $46,515 to $72,098. The range for the other captain’s posi-tion is $40,628 to $62,973. In 2010, the Police Department began a re-accreditation process, which was recently completed.

Funeral protest ban expansionnears voteBy BILL KACZORAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — Legislation that would expand a ban on protesting, picketing and other disturbances at all funerals, memorial services and burials in Florida, rather than just those involving mili-tary honor details, is on a fast track after final committee approval Tuesday. Florida’s existing law, a federal statute and similar legisla-tion in other states are largely a response to military funeral

AROUND FLORIDA State money to lure soccer eyed TALLAHASSEE — Florida lawmakers are con-sidering whether to pay $2 million a year in order to lure Major League Soccer to the state. A state Senate panel on Tuesday approved a measure that would guar-antee $2 million a year for the next 30 years to help pay for a soccer sta-dium. Orlando has been mentioned as a possible candidate for a new MLS franchise. The bill sponsored by Sen. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, would permit a state subsidy for two MLS teams. The move to help lure professional soccer is com-ing at the same time that other sports teams are also seeking state help. The Miami Dolphins are asking for $3 million a year for the next 30 years to help upgrade Sun Life Stadium in South Florida.Domestic partner bill vote delayed TALLAHASSEE — The sponsor of a Florida domestic partnership bill says she’ll rework it after the measure ran into oppo-sition from her own com-mittee. Senate Children Families and Elder Affairs Committee Chairwoman Eleanor Sobel temporar-ily postponed a vote on her bill on Tuesday after acknowledging it would be defeated. The bill would grant couples in domestic partnerships, whether of the same or opposite sex, many of the rights and privileges as married couples. Opponents said it would violate Florida’s consti-tutional ban on same-sex marriages. Supporters disagreed. Eighteen Florida cities and counties already have created domestic partner-ship registries with limited rights such as the ability to visit partners who are hospitalized. Sobel, a Hollywood Democrat, said she would rewrite her bill to more closely match the local ordinances.Justices reject execution delay TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Supreme Court is refusing to block the Feb. 26 execution of a drug traf-ficker who was convicted of killing a state trooper with a pipe bomb. The justices on Tuesday unanimously denied a post-conviction appeal and request for a stay of execu-tion from Paul Augustus Howell. He was convicted of killing Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Jimmy Fulford in February 1992. Fulford had stopped a car carrying the bomb, hidden inside a gift-wrapped microwave oven, on Interstate 10 east of Tallahassee. Authorities said the bomb was being delivered to two women in Marianna with the intent of killing them because they knew too much about a South Florida drug ring. The bomb exploded when Fulford opened the package.Police kill man during shootout JACKSONVILLE — Authorities say a routine traffic stop in Jacksonville led to a shootout with police and a suspect being killed. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reports that a vehicle was pulled over for some equipment violations early Tuesday morning. Two officers approached the car, and the passenger, later identi-fied as 23-year-old John Dawson Parker, opened the door and ran. News organizations reported that one officer chased Parker on foot while the other officer followed in a patrol car. The officer on foot eventu-ally tackled Parker, and a struggle ensued. Authorities say Parker pushed away at some point, drew a gun and fired at the officer. Both officers returned fire, kill-ing Parker. A nearby home was hit by a bullet, but no one inside was injured. The driver who was initially pulled over was coop-erating with officers.Prosecutor will handle hot case JACKSONVILLE — State Attorney Angela Corey says she will per-sonally prosecute the cen-tral Florida man charged with killing a Jacksonville teenager following an argument over loud music coming from the teen’s car. News reports said Corey confirmed during a hear-ing Tuesday that she will be prosecuting 46-year-old Michael David Dunn. Dunn is charged with first-degree murder in the Nov. 23 shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Authorities say Dunn parked at a Jacksonville gas station next to the vehicle where Davis was sitting with three other teens. Dunn complained about the loud music, and they started arguing. Dunn told police he thought he saw a gun and fired eight or nine shots into the vehicle. McCready’s death raises Dr. Drew debateNASHVILLE, Tenn. T he criticism of Dr. Drew Pinsky spread on the Internet almost as quickly as news of Mindy McCready’s death. The country singer with the tumultuous personal life became the fifth cast member of his “Celebrity Rehab” series to die since appear-ing on the show and the third from Season 3. The previous deaths stirred up rumors of a curse and a debate about the show’s helpfulness, and McCready’s apparent suicide upped the pitch of the reaction. While many noted that Drew took on hard cases, others rendered stark judgment. Singer Richard Marx on Twitter compared Pinsky to Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the so-called suicide doc-tor: “Same results.” Marx backed off later Monday, saying the crack went too far. But he restated his thoughts in a way that summed up much of the reaction in the first 24 hours since the 37-year-old McCready’s death Sunday after-noon in Heber Springs, Ark. “It is, however, my opinion that what Dr. D does is exploitation and his TV track record is not good,” Marx wrote. VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” is not currently on the air. Pinsky wasn’t immediately available for comment, his publicist said, but he issued a statement Sunday night that noted he’d spoken with McCready recently. “She is a lovely woman who will be missed by many,” the statement said. “... Unfortunately it seems that Mindy did not sustain her treat-ment.” A lack of continued treatment also appears to have led to the deaths of McCready’s Season 3 castmates Mike Starr, bassist for Alice in Chains, and Joey Kovar, a “Real World” participant. Los Angeles riots spark Rodney King and actor Jeff Conaway also have passed away. Starr and Kovar overdosed and King was found dead in his pool with alcohol and marijuana in his system. Conaway was initially thought to have overdosed, but died of pneumo-nia and an infection.Quincy Jones launches music education app ATLANTA — Quincy Jones says he has co-created the music version of Rosetta Stone. The 79-year-old composer-producer launched a new music education application Tuesday called Playground Sessions, which teaches users how to play the piano. He said the app will help children and adults learn how to read music and understand the mechanics of piano playing. There’s “such a need for this,” Jones said in an interview last week. “The concept is brand-new. I have been praying for this for a long time. It has a learning concept similar to Rosetta Stone. I’m blown away by this.” Playground Sessions is a musical app with real-time feedback and video tutorials from pianist David Sides. It features about 70 popular songs by Beyonce and Justin Bieber, and well-known tunes like Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” Jones, who produced Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and other suc-cessful albums, hopes Playground Sessions will have an impact on music education programs in schools around the world.

Research shows that chronic lack of sleep is also linked to and and even Michael J. Lindell, Inventor, Manufacturer and CEO of MyPillow Inc. may have found the solution to getting a better nights sleep. suggests Lindell who spent years searching for the perfect pillow that ultimately led to the creation of the highly successful brand of pillows. Most pillows are designed to break down says Lindell, I would wake up in the morning with a sore arm, my neck would hurt, ngers would be numb and I would toss and turn all night not knowing why. I tried many different pillows on the market and none of them worked so I started researching pillows and sleep disorders and became adamant about creating MyPillow Premium uses a Patented three piece Interlocking Fill that Stays Cool, is Healthy and Conforms to your exact individual needs regardless of sleep position.

COURTESY A Honda and a Chevrolet Malibu were involved in a crash on U.S. 90 about 9 a.m. Monday that sent the Honda crashing into a 2013 Nissan Altima on display at the Rountree Moore Nissan dealership. The Honda crashed into the dealerships sign, as well. There were no apparent injuries, according to witnesses.Traffic was rerouted to Lake City Avenue while road crews cleaned up the debris. Crash at dealership protests by a church based in Topeka, Kan. The Rev. Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church congregation claim God is punishing the United States for tolerating homo sexuality. Protesters often carry signs with message such as Thank God for Dead Soldiers. The church also has tar geted other events. It recent ly threatened to picket funer als for 20 first-graders and six adults who were killed in December by a gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Protesters can face up to a year in jail and $1,000 fine for violating Floridas exist ing law. That penalty would remain unchanged under the new legislation. The Senate Criminal Justice Committee unani mously approved that chambers version (SB 118) on Tuesday. A simi lar House bill (HB 15) ear lier cleared all committees there. Both now are ready for floor votes after the legislative session begins March 5. The Senate bill spon sored by Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, R-Fort Myers, initially would have expand ed the law to include funer als, memorial services and burials for military person nel without honor details as well as those for emergency response workers, elected officials and minors. The committee, though, amended it at Benacquistos request to include such events for anyone. We were told by multiple people that theres extreme constitutionality concerns by creating a protected class of person, whether it be a military person, an elected official or a child, said Matthew Hunter, an aide to Benacquisto. Those are where were seeing the picketing and engaging, so to try to get to alleviate that concern we broadened it. The legislation covers prohibited activities within 500 feet of the property line of any home, ceme tery, funeral home, church or other location during, or within an hour before and an hour after, a funeral, burial or memorial service. Sen. Chris Smith, D-Ft. Lauderdale, said its a good bill, but he was worried that it doesnt go far enough. He said he someone might avoid arrest by simply sit ting down and holding a protest sign. I dont think that quali fies as picketing, Smith said. If we can maybe put a better definition of some one just sitting there hold ing a vulgar sign and trying to fly under this as we go forward. The U.S. Supreme Court in 2006 reversed a civil judgment against Phelps in Maryland for disturbing the funeral of a Marine who had been killed in Iraq. The justices ruled Phelps was protected by the First Amendment because he had exercised his free speech rights in a public forum and had addressed an issue of public concern. The high court, though, noted even such protected speech can be regulated. The ruling also involved a civil claim rather than crimi nal laws such as Floridas. Those laws in other states have since been upheld by lower courts. FUNERALS: Protest ban would be extended Continued From Page 1A LCPD: Continued From Page 1A Johnson said Gilmore planned the reclassification of the captain positions as a result of the accreditation process. City officials also approved using sales tax bond revenues to resur face and upgrade Alachua and Columbia streets, as well as to purchase a used Caterpillar excavator for $85,000. If you ride those streets Im sure youll find theyre in deplorable condition, Johnson said. He said he expects the construction costs to be about $60,000 for each street. The city Public Works Department will use the excavator to maintain storm water system ditches and swales. City reports said this type of excavator mini mizes damage to property during maintenance and repair operations because it has smooth wheel mobility rather than tracks. In other business, council: Appointed for Linda Nettles as a Lake City Code Enforcement Board mem ber, replacing John Denyko, who resigned. Recognized Joe Allen, a city employee working at the sprayfield, who plans to retire after 23 years; and Recognized Carlton Tunsil, who worked with the citys fire department as the chief since 2007 and has retired after 31 years. CUTS: Both parties letting it ride Continued From Page 1A responders, or seniors or middle class families. Aides say Obama is ready to take his case more directly to the pub lic in an effort to pres sure Republicans, either by traveling to vulnerable states or, as the White House often does, through local media interviews. They say neither Obama nor White House offi cials are now engaged in direct negotiations with Republican leaders. The spending cuts, how ever, arent perceived to be as calamitous as the threat ened results of recent fights over the nations borrow ing authority and the fiscal cliff that would have cut spending and increased tax rates on all Americans pay ing income taxes. Failure to raise the debt ceiling would have left the gov ernment with no money to spend on myriad programs and could have precipitated an unprecedented default. The fiscal cliff had the potential of setting back the economic recovery. In fact, many Republicans now see the automatic cuts in spending as the only way to tackle the federal deficit. Some liberals wont balk either because they want cuts in Pentagon spend ing. And many Democrats believe the cuts will have to materialize before Republicans agree to some increase in taxes. Some Democrats want it because of the defense cuts, and Republicans want it because they want to do anything to cut domestic spending, said Brendan Daly, a former top aide to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the former House speaker and now Democratic leader. And politically, its diffi cult to oppose because the impact wont be so severe right away. Democratic consul tant Jim Manley, a for mer Senate leader added: Not only do I expect the sequester to kick in, but unfortunately it will take a couple of temporary gov ernment shutdowns before Republicans realize they need to sit down and nego tiate in good faith. YOHO: Congressman visits city Continued From Page 1A behind that rhetoric and say we are going to deal with our debt, we are going to deal with immigration, we are going to deal with these things that have been put off and have weakened our country. Another issue Yoho plans on pushing in Congress is the fair tax, and repeal ing the 16th Amendment (which made income tax legal). The fair tax would replace the income tax. Instead of a tax code based on individual income, the fair tax would be based on the amount a person con sumes, he said. The fair tax calls for a federal sales tax of 23 percent. Another thing Yoho pointed out was that his first vote in Congress was against re-electing Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, as speaker of the House. He voted for Eric Cantor, R-Va. Yoho said he supports legis lation that would rein back the power of the executive branch, in particular, the presidents use of executive orders. Hospitals push for Medicaid expansion Associated Press FORT LAUDERDALE Florida hospital execu tives warned they will be hit hard if the state does not expand Medicaid cov erage under the federal health overhaul because hospitals will lose federal funding theyve been rely ing on to care for uninsured patients. Florida hospitals spent more than $2.8 bil lion caring for uninsured patients in 2011, hospital officials said Monday. The Affordable Care Act will end some major federal funding streams to hospitals that cover large numbers of uninsured patients because the law assumes those patients will have insurance through Medicaid expan sion or through state online health exchanges. But the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Medicaid expansion is optional for states, leav ing Florida hospitals con cerned they will be on the hook for huge bills with less money to pay for them than in the past. If Florida doesnt expand Medicaid, were going to have the money taken out of one pocket, we just wont get it put back in the other, Tommy Inzina, chief admin istrative officer at BayCare Health System.

We believe strong newspapers build strong communities —“Newspapers get things done!” Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers. This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman A fter President Obama won re-election in November, we had high hopes that he would take the lead on a serious effort to bring down deficits and debt — since he wouldn’t have to worry about running again. He dashed those hopes with his State of the Union speech last week. Sure, the president paid lip service to the goal of reducing red ink. He implicitly conceded the need to slow the growth in spending on Medicare and Social Security. Together, those two programs account for more than a third of federal spending, and that share is expanding. Millions of Floridians, and tens of millions of Americans, depend on Medicare and Social Security. But both programs aren’t sustainable for the long term without restructuring, according to their trustees. Take it from the president: “Yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population,” he said. Without reforms, he added, “our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future genera-tions.” But after setting the table for serious reform, he upended it. His proposals for Medicare — reducing subsidies to drug companies, charging “the wealthiest seniors” more for coverage and changing the way the program pays for care — would cut costs, but not enough to close the huge funding gap it faces. As for Social Security, he didn’t propose anything.At another point in his speech, the president portrayed deficit reduction as a stark choice: cutting Medicare and Social Security or eliminating “tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off and well-con-nected.” The truth is that both strategies are needed to make more than a dent in deficits and debt, along with smart cuts in big-ticket areas like defense. Annual trillion-dollar deficits under Obama have pushed the national debt to more than $16 trillion and a share of the economy not seen since America was repaying the huge cost of winning World War II. The debt is on track to grow faster in the future, putting the U.S. deeper in hock to creditors like China and divert-ing more and more dollars to interest payments from investments that would make the economy stronger and the country safer. While failing to lead on meaningful reforms to entitlements, the president laid out proposals for more spending, including $50 billion for public works con-struction and more federal dollars for green energy, manufacturing and housing. He even called for univer-sal preschool, a startling new commitment for a debt-riddled Washington. The president said none of his proposals “should increase the deficit by a single dime,” suggesting their costs could be covered with spending cuts or tax hikes. But treading water in a sea of red ink isn’t good enough. The nation needs a plan — and leadership — to decrease deficits. The president will get another chance to lead when he unveils his budget in a few weeks. We hope he won’t blow it next time.

Seriously.For years I have told my family and closest friends that there is absolutely no reason to make a big deal of my birthday. Come to think of it, that may be the only thing I have ever told them that they actually seemed to hear. “Please don’t make a fuss over my birthday,” I tell them, “even though it does only happen once a year and -I’m just saying -could always be my last. You don’t need to give me presents or parties or even a card ... unless you really want to.” Most of them really want to, bless their hearts. I’m pretty sure. Unless they forget. Far be it from me to judge others for being forgetful. It happens to all of us. To some, yes, more than to most, and we all know who we are. Unless we forget that, too. Forgetting isn’t something you do on purpose. Usually. Like, when you invite people over for dinner and you forget that you invited them? And they show up at the door and you’re wearing your husband’s slippers and your old nightgown that the dog chewed to shreds and you’ve got a fresh batch of Nice ‘n Easy Root Touch-Up drip-ping from your head, down your neck and onto the floor? Don’t even try to tell me you’ve never done anything like that. Everybody forgets something once in a while -even the birth-day of somebody you hold dear. It doesn’t mean you don’t hold them every bit as dear. It just means you forgot. Forgetting a birthday is an accident, like forgetting you invited those people to dinner. Say you’re sorry and move on. Send out for a pizza. Actually, I’m always amazed at how many people remember my birthday. And not just because I remind them about it or happen to mention it in a column. My husband, my children, most of my friends (even the ones whose birthdays I forget) all remembered it. This year. A gracious many of you, too, sent cards or emailed wishes. Imagine that. Thank you. My brother Joe called, as he always does, to sing “Happy Birthday” off-key. But instead of calling at his usual 5 a.m., he waited until evening. I’m not sure if he finally realized that I don’t appreciate 5 a.m. phone calls, or he just had something better to do. Anyhow, I wish you could’ve heard him. Then there’s my sister, who never forgets my birthday. I waited all day for her call. And waited. And waited. Then I got busy eating my birthday dinner (my husband cooked) and I forgot. This morning, there was a message in my voice mail. “Sissy,” she said, “I’m so sorry! I meant to call you, but I fell asleep. If you’re still speaking to me, call me back.” Anything can be forgiven, if you love someone. But it doesn’t hurt to let them sweat. I waited a few hours to call her back. “I can’t believe you forgot to call me on my birthday,” I said. “I didn’t forget,” she whined, “I just fell asleep. Are you going to put it in a column?” “Would I do that?”Then we laughed and talked and reminisced, as we always do, about everything and nothing, for a good long time. It’s nice to be remembered on your birthday. But it’s better to remember that you are lucky to be loved every day of the year. You don’t have to send me a card for my birthday (P.O. Box 777394, Henderson NV 89077.) Unless you really want to.On forgetting a birthday Q Orlando Sentinel Q Associated Press To the Editor:On March 7, 2013 at the School Board District Office, 372 W. Duval Street, the Columbia County District School Board will hold a special session on their school bud-get. It is open to the public from 1 to 6 pm. The school board has to balance the budget with a minimum of 3 percent cushion surplus or face the discipline of the Florida Department of Education. On the front page of the February 14, 2013 Lake City Reporter was an article about the aging school buses situation and the need to replace buses that are more than ten years old. Why 10 years old maximum? Well, it said on page 5A, “The real prob-lem with an aging fleet of school buses is the cost of maintenance.” Superintendent Terry Huddleston said concerning the replacement of buses, “It just depends on the budget.” Do the math. The District has 117 buses. 60 were built after 2001. That means 117 60 = 57 buses were built more than 12 years ago. At $100,000 per bus x 57 = $5,700,000 are needed to replace all the buses more than 12 years old. On page 1A, school board member Keith Hudson is quoted as saying at the February 12 school board meeting that the “school district hasn’t bought new buses in three years. I’m really dis-appointed.” Here is another problem. School Board Chairman Steve Nelson said that the normal amount of the budget needed for the employees salaries and benefits is 80%. The District is spending 87% of the budget on employ-ees according to Steve Nelson. Something may have to give in order to meet the 3% budget cush-ion required by the FDOE. There may be more issues that will be brought up at the March 7, 2013 meeting of the school board. It seems that they are under financial stress. Please pray for this school board and if you get a chance, fellow tax-payer, ask them some questions.

Tony Stewart overshadowed by Patrick at SpeedweeksBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH — Tony Stewart typically shines during Speedweeks, the nine-day span where he cements himself as a top contender to win the Daytona 500. He’s back in the spotlight this year, just not the way he’s been in the past. Stewart has so far been overshadowed by Danica Patrick, who drove a Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet to the pole in qualifying for the Daytona 500. It’s made Patrick, not Stewart, the star so far at Daytona. As Patrick’s car owner, Stewart is just fine with that. “I’ll be honest, the pole didn’t matter to me Owner’s driver shining brighter on track so far.

Beyond Florida, SEC scrambling for NCAA berthsBy JOHN ZENORAssociated PressMONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Southeastern Conference is bracing for potential Marginal Madness this March. With only one team ranked in the Top 25, the No. 5 Florida Gators, the SEC could have three or fewer teams in the NCAA tournament for only the second time in 23 years even if there’s others hold-ing out hope. There’s solid cases at Missouri and Mississippi, uncertainty at Kentucky and glimmers of hope at Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee but nobody beyond the Gators is con-sidered a lock. “The way the league is now is fun,” Volunteers guard Jordan McRae said. “Last year with Kentucky, you knew they were going to be there at the end. Now it’s like LSU could be in the championship or win the championship. Florida could lose in the first round. Missouri could win. Anybody’s in the game right now. It’s fun like that.” Apparently one man’s definition of fun is another man’s nerve-racking. The SEC has as many teams with power ratings of 200 or worse (three) as in the Top 50, and even that’s shaky territory. Jerry Palm’s collegerpi. com rates Florida fourth, Missouri 38th, Kentucky 45th and Ole Miss 52nd. Barring a surprise SEC tournament champion, two bracket watchers have Florida, Mississippi and Missouri making the NCAA field — and seven leagues receiving more invitations. “I would be more surprised if they ended up with four than if they ended up with two,” said Palm, who runs a bracket for CBSSports.com. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi agrees that it’s an uphill climb beyond those three teams. “Their number is not likely to start going back up in terms of numbers of team unless somebody truly unexpected wins the conference tournament,” Lunardi said. It could be a near replay of 2009 when the SEC sent only three teams to the tour-nament for the first time in 19 years. LSU managed the lone win of the three teams, though there wasn’t a potential No. 1 seed like Florida in the mix. It’s the only time in the past 23 years the league hasn’t had at least one team make it to the regional semifinals. The biggest question mark involves the defend-ing national champion Wildcats, whose tournament stock was uncertain even before losing shot-blocking freshman Nerlens Noel to a season-ending knee injury. Tennessee routed Kentucky 88-58 in the first game without the star fresh-man. “Kentucky probably has the best profile of the (SEC) teams I don’t have in the bracket, but without Noel it’s hard to imagine they’re going to be able to sustain anything,” Palm said. “Probably they’re going to fall back. Alabama and Tennessee are prob-ably the two teams with the best chance to give the league more than three, but I haven’t seen anything from either of those teams to make me optimistic.” Kentucky guard Jarrod Polson knows there’s little margin for error. “I think it’s in the back of our minds that if we want to make the tournament we have to win all the games or maybe just lose one more,” Polson said. “At this time of the year, this is when we need to get hot any-way so we can just look at these games as tournament games.” In some ways, the apparent downturn isn’t all that surprising for the SEC, which had four teams com-bine for a 10-3 NCAA tour-nament mark last season not counting new addition Missouri, upset by Norfolk State in the first round. The league had 12 players selected in the NBA draft — that number rises to 15 counting newcom-ers Missouri and Texas A&M — including the top three picks and eight first-rounders. Kentucky and Vanderbilt had to replace all five starters and Missouri only had one back in star point guard Phil Pressey. Plus, there’s seven coaches either in their first or second season with their current team. Southeastern Conference has one Top 25 team. Indians knocked out of playoffsFrom staff reportsFort White High’s best season in Indians basket-ball history came to an end on Tuesday as the Indians fell to Williston High in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs. Fort White battled back from an early 21-13 deficit before falling to the Red Devils, 72-68. The Indians battled back to tie the game 34-34 at the half, but trailed Williston 54-49 heading into the final period. Fort White closed the game quickly in the fourth quarter and trailed by only one point with 5:07 to play as Williston hung onto a 57-56 lead. The Indians’ last lead of the game came with 4:10 to play as Fort White gained a 61-59 edge before the Red Devils outscored Fort White 13-7 over the final stretch. Fort White won its first-ever basketball play-off game last week with a 63-62 win against Mount Dora High and finishes the season at 15-6. Williston moves on to play the winner of Satellite and Lake highland Prep high schools on Saturday. Fort White’s season comes to end in 2nd round.

Prosecutors, however, said the double-amputee Olympian committed pre-meditated murder, plan-ning the slaying, then fir-ing at Reeva Steenkamp as she cowered behind his locked bathroom door with no hope of escape. “She couldn’t go anywhere,” Prosecutor Gerrie Nel told a packed court-room Tuesday. “It must have been horrific.” Weeping uncontrollably, Pistorius listened as his words were read out in court by his attorney dur-ing the opening of a two-day bail hearing, his first public account of the events surrounding the shooting death of Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model and reality TV star who had spoken out against violence against women. “I fail to understand how I could be charged with murder, let alone premedi-tated murder, as I had no intention to kill my girl-friend, Reeva Steenkamp,” Pistorius said in the sworn affidavit. “I deny the afore-said allegation in the stron-gest terms.” It was the first time that the prosecution and Pistorius provided details of their radically divergent accounts of the killing, which has shocked South Africans and fans world-wide, who idolized the 26-year-old track star known as the Blade Runner for overcoming his disability to compete in last summer’s London Olympics. Nel said Pistorius committed premeditated mur-der when he rose from his bed after a fight with Steenkamp, pulled on his prosthetic legs and walked about 20 feet from his bed-room to the locked toilet door and pumped it with four bullets, three of which hit the model.

His Instagram account is littered with day-in-the-life snapshots of cars and crews, all carrying the tag, “My crazy life captured in pictures.” Wallace, though, isn’t a typical 19-year-old NASCAR prospect trying to climb the ladder, and he’s less inter-ested in a budding photog-raphy career. He is a pio-neer of sorts as only the fourth black driver with a full-time ride in a NASCAR series. When Wallace takes the wheel for the Truck Series race Friday at Daytona International Speedway, he’ll become a slice of NASCAR history in a race that ignites his goal of serv-ing as a role model for a generation of potential future black drivers. “It’s kind of up to me,” Wallace said. “It’s kind of a huge weight.” Busting down racial barriers in a sport long reserved for whites is pretty heavy stuff for a teenager and all eyes are on him. Yet Wallace, the son of a white father and black mother, openly talks of becom-ing the Tiger Woods of NASCAR — the great black star who can transcend the sport and prove people of all colors can race. “You don’t have a role model. That’s why you don’t see anybody in it,” Wallace said. “They can’t look up and be like, ‘I want to be like him because he’s the same color as me.’ There’s no one there to do that. I’m the top one right now and I’m only 19.” Wallace joins Wendell Scott, Willy T. Ribbs and Bill Lester as the only full-time black drivers in the 65-year history of NASCAR. Scott is the only black driv-er to win a race, way back in 1964. Wallace is signed with Joe Gibbs Racing and will drive the No. 54 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports on Friday. Gibbs knows as well as anyone what it’s like to work with black athletes under the microscope. He coached the Washington Redskins when Doug Williams became the first black quarterback to win a Super Bowl in 1988. Gibbs said Wallace has the tal-ent and the mental tough-ness to break through in NASCAR. “I think he’s the right kid,” Gibbs said. Wallace, raised in Concord, N.C., has the full support of the black drivers before him. Lester has sent him encouraging tweets. Wallace met some of Scott’s children at a race in Virginia. “They’re just happy to see someone following in their dad’s footsteps,” he said. “I’m hoping that I can carry that torch a little far-ther.” He’s in a better position to succeed than many other minorities over the years. He has sponsorship, a top-flight team in JGR and is a graduate of NASCAR’s diversity program. Even in NASCAR, the climate has changed where drivers of all sexes and colors are openly accepted, in the garage, and hopefully in the stands. Wallace, who goes by Bubba, spent the last three seasons driving in a lowlevel NASCAR developmen-tal series and said racism in all forms was nonexistent. At lower levels of racing, though, Wallace would hear racial insults or encounter ignorant views. “We used to take it from fans,” his father, Darrell, said. “We’ve had it from other drivers. We’ve had it from officials. We’ve had it from promoters. We’ve had it from track owners. We’ve pretty much had it from everybody.” Wallace said the heckles and hurtful words from his formative years in the sport have been left on the side of the road and he can continue to focus on racing — just this time on his big-gest stage so far. “I’d show up the next week and wear ‘em out again,” he said, smiling. “I really didn’t understand it. My dad got more fired up than anything.” His father sparked a love of the sport when he was 9, putting him in go-karts, and always scouting out the next series. Darrell Wallace even bought a Legends car from Mark Martin. He attends every race and will be in the stands Friday night. His mother, Desiree, ran track at Tennessee and stays home to watch on TV (”She likes hearing what they say about me.”). Mom did offer a piece of advice that has stuck with Wallace. Avoid confronta-tions with other drivers who used slurs. Just go win. Wallace’s love and talent for the sport will mean nothing if he can’t find the right sponsor willing to fund his career. Sponsorship cash is the lifeblood of the sport. His father has owned an industrial cleaning business since 1999 and pumped at least $1 million into his son’s fledgling career. He spent as much $250,000 in 2008. The elder Wallace paid bills late and borrowed money to keep his son’s career alive. “He tried to do everything he could to keep me racing,” Wallace said. It’s a path he expects to land him in the Sprint Cup series. “I’m not ready for it next year. I’m not ready for it in two years,” he said. “It’s all about the timing. It’s all about how well I do this year.” NASCAR has initiated several pushes toward boosting the number of minorities in the sport. There’s a Drive for Diversity program that may pay some dividends with Wallace and Kyle Larson after strug-gling to find racers for the top series. The program is 10 years old and was designed to attract minori-ties and women to the sport in all fields, from the track to the front office. Wallace participated in a short-lived reality show in 2010 called “Changing Lanes,” that fea-tured 10 young female and minority racers competing for a spot on a developmental team. Not even showbiz helped Wallace land the big-bucks sponsor needed to race in the second-tier series. Wallace ideally would have run in the Nationwide Series this season, but was unable to land enough sponsorship. He had three top-10 finishes and a pole in four Nationwide races in 2012. Gibbs said Wallace is still slated for some Nationwide races. “We’ve had a lot of other African-American drivers get in the sport, but they got in late,” Gibbs said. “It’s hard to get in late. You’ve got to start when you’re young and race your way up. I think Darrell’s got it.” Wallace was busy balancing Daytona duties with media requests this week and was set to hold a press conference with Gibbs on Wednesday at the track. “Darrell’s equipped to handle the attention,” said Marcus Jadotte, NASCAR’s vice president for public affairs and multicultural development. “Most impor-tantly, he’s equipped to han-dle the competition on the race track.” He can win. But can he lead? The next generation of black golfers never fol-lowed Woods for much of the same reasons it’s hard to crack NASCAR. The sport is expensive and opportunities are few. And, it’s unfair to place the bur-den of a revolution on one athlete. But it’s time for a change. “It’s not about the color of your skin or your gender, it’s about your abilities,” four-time Cup champ Jeff Gordon said after Danica Patrick won the Daytona 500 pole. For now, at least he has the name for a NASCAR star. Darrell, Wallace, Junior. That’s a tripleheader of iconic NASCAR names that have deep roots in the sport. His team came up with a slogan: “Darrell not Waltrip. Wallace not Rusty. Junior not Dale.” Funny stuff for an easygoing teen who just wants to race while the hype of his achievement swirls around him. “If you think about it much, you’ll end up mess-ing up,” he said. He thought about it for a second, then added: “I won’t mess up.” ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this May 20 file photo, Darrell Wallace Jr. waves to fan s before the NASCAR Nationwide Series’ Pioneer Hi-Bred 250 auto race at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa. They call Wallace Jr., “Bubba.” But he’s known these days more as only the fourth black driver with a full-time ride in a NASCAR series. personally,” Stewart said after Patrick qualified first for Sunday’s season-open-ing race. “It was more as an owner, wanting Danica to be in the top two.” He got his wish, with Patrick locking herself into the field with the fastest lap of last Sunday’s qualifying session. It was an all-around stellar qualifying session for SHR, which also had Ryan Newman post the fourth fastest time and Stewart one spot behind in fifth. It was a demonstration of offseason preparation for a team that spent the winter not only readying for NASCAR’s new Gen-6 car, but also running three Sprint Cup cars this season with the full-time addition of Patrick. “This was probably one of the most difficult win-ters that I can remember from my 15 years of going through offseasons here for teams to actually get pre-pared to come down here to Daytona,” Stewart said. “To have three cars in the top five like that, just real-ly, really appreciative and excited that we were able to bring three consistent cars down like this.” Stewart can bask in his role as owner only until Thursday, when it will be time for him to start focus-ing on the Daytona 500. It was in the back of his mind after qualifying last Sunday, when he was proud of Patrick and the SHR orga-nization but knew what was ahead for him as a driver. “To me, my eye is still on next Sunday. Ownership side this Sunday, next Sunday I want it from the driver’s side,” he said. There’s no questioning how bad Stewart wants the win. Despite three Cup championships, 47 career wins in NASCAR’s top series and a record that proves he’s as one of the most tal-ented and versatile drivers in the world, Stewart has several glaring holes on his resume and one of them is the Daytona 500. In 17 seasons spanning NASCAR and IndyCar, Stewart has been able to cross most everything off his to-do list. But he has fallen short 14 times in the Daytona 500. He’s won 18 career races at Daytona — four in the July Cup race — but never in the biggest race of them all.

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Doug” (24), and I (22) have been in a long-distance relationship for a year, but we were friends for a couple of years before that. I had never had a serious relationship before and lacked experience. Doug has not only been in two other long-term rela-tionships, but has had sex with more than 15 women. One of them is an amateur porn actress. I knew about this, but it didn’t bother me until recently. Doug had a party, and while he was drunk he told one of his buddies -in front of me -that he should watch a certain porn film starring his ex-girlfriend. It made me feel awkward. The next day he apologized. Of course, having learned her name, I couldn’t help myself from searching for her on the Internet. Now I can’t stop comparing myself to her, and I feel intimidated and frustrated. I have been struggling with how to get over it. Doug has told me many times that he loves me and I believe him. But those stupid, drunken comments really knocked me down. How do I get over my boy-friend’s past? -ECLIPSED BY A “STAR” IN NEW YORK DEAR ECLIPSED: A giant step in the right direction would be to quit comparing yourself to a porn actress. In his addled condition, your immature boyfriend couldn’t resist bragging to his buddies because he thought it would impress them with his prowess. If he had seri-ous feelings about her, he would still be with her, not in a relationship with you. That said, it would be in your best interest to find out if this woman really was a “girlfriend” or one of his one-night stands. If he is in a long-distance relationship with you and tends to be promiscuous, you should be more con-cerned about his judgment than how to get over his past. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: We have always purchased rather than leased our cars. One of them has 225,000 miles on the odometer and is running well. I have two friends who lease expen-sive foreign cars. Keeping the mileage down on their cars is important to them, especially when it comes time to return them at the end of the lease. Because of this, I find myself driving more often than I should. One friend attends a weekly meet-ing with me, and we’re supposed to take turns driving each other every other week. But somehow I end up at the wheel more often. I’d hate to start writ-ing down our outings, but I’m beginning to feel used. While I respect their decision to lease expen-sive new cars, it is not my responsibility to keep their expenses down. Both of these women are in a bet-ter financial position than I am, although we are all “comfortable.” Any ideas about how to approach this without seeming petty? It has been going on for a long while and is starting to bother me. -DRIVEN TOO FAR IN LONG BEACH, CALIF. DEAR DRIVEN TOO FAR: If you feel that you are being taken advantage of, then you probably are. I recommend you wean these ladies off your chauf-feur services by being less available when they need a ride. And if you are asked why, remind them of your original agreement to share the driving duties 50-50. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Observe and you will avoid problems with friends or colleagues.

Joint ventures will pay off. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Think outside the box. With a little help from someone who owes you a favor, you will be able to get ahead. Don’t let any-one put demands on you that will stifle what you can achieve. Love and romance are highlighted. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t go overboard if someone asks for assis-tance. Someone trying to take advantage of your skills, talents and knowl-edge must be controlled. A difficult partnership should be reassessed before you become too entrenched to back out gracefully. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Size up your situation, keeping your emotions in check. The less others know about the way you feel, the easier it will be for you to get what you want. Mixing business with plea-sure will require discipline. Don’t give in to demands. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Make plans to do something exciting. Visiting someone who lives differently from you will enable you to see the possibilities for making your life simpler. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Watch over friends, family and your home. Expect to encounter trouble if you don’t stick to the rules. You will need to make changes or sacrifices in order to avoid an emo-tional situation that could affect a close relationship. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Rely on past experience and people to help you get what you want. A career move or development will enable you to reach a goal ahead of schedule. Don’t let impulses take over. Savor the moment. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Wait and see what everyone else does before making a move. Concentrate on what you want to do in the future and research what’s required to reach your goals. Romance may entice you, but you must take care of business first. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Speak up, share your ideas and make financial decisions that will secure your reputation and your ability to get ahead in the future. Changes at home will contribute to your emotional and creative wellness. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
