By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comMembers of Florida Leaders Organized for Water are unhappy with the groups progress, and plan to hold a workshop to fix the problems that stop the group from getting things done. The workshop was tentatively scheduled for April 13 at 9 a.m. in the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex. Columbia County Commissioner and FLOW Chairman Ron Williams said he feels the organization has been spinning our wheels, and wasnt pleased that FLOW will not pro-pose legislation this year. He called for the organization to fix the problems or run the risk of never accomplishing anything. We have been at this about a year, he said. ... Everything is moving and we are still sitting here spinning our wheels. We need to get some traction. Keystone Heights representative for FLOW, Mary Lou Hildreth, agreed that progress has been disappointing and that FLOW is being left behind. The train is leaving the station, and we dont even have our bags packed, Hildreth said. Williams said he usually doesnt pay attention or answer to whis-pers from unnamed sources, but recently hes heard that Floridas regulatory bodies governing water have dismissed FLOW. ... Some regulatory agencies made the statement that FLOW is disarrayed and they dont have a focus and (they) are going to move on and do what (they) are going to do. The reason it bothered him was he sees some truth to those accusations, he said. We are not ready to take on Goliath like David did, Williams said. We are kind of sitting back with our hands tucked in and still havent found our way yet. He then compared FLOW to the 40 years spent by the Jewish tribes in the desert. To me we have just wandered somewhere, and I want to go to the promised land and do what this board was charged with, Williams said.Panel rejects Medicaid expansionBy KELLI KENNEDY and GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE A Florida Senate committee voted Monday against expanding Medicaid to roughly 1 million of the states poorest under the federal health overhaul and instead proposed a voucher plan that would require patients to pay premiums and co-pays. This will be the beginning of a transformation of the entire Medicaid system, committee chair Sen. Joe Negron said. My goal is that we will get out of the federal Medicaid system as we know it. Now we cant do that all at once, but we have an opportu-nity to begin that process. Negron wants the state to create a basic health insurance plan for the expanded Medicaid population and require recipi-ents to pay a sliding scale pre-mium based on their income. He suggested using Florida Healthy Kids, a managed care program that provides health insurance to low-income chil-dren, as the vehicle for delivering the new system. Some law-makers, including Republican Sen. Aaron Bean of Fernandina Beach, also suggested using state funds to help patients pay those premiums. Could we ante up our own money to expand coverage but under our terms without cre-ating the entitlement program that we cant or at least weve Sheriff praises staff after natonal awardBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comDays before the 2012-13 school year began, a local youth took his life as the result of bullying.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports the districts employment services department had to be removed from its head-quarters after a termite infestation was discovered. Administrators have also discovered termites in the new band room at Howard Middle School. Officials believe the termites might be coming from wood somewhere outside. The new facility is still under warranty. Officials hope the school district employment ser-vices department repairs will be completed by the end of the countys spring break.Fungus killing redbay trees DAYTONA BEACH A tree fungus known as laurel wilt is spreading rap-idly across parts of central Florida, killing hundreds of redbay trees. The fungus carried by ambrosia beetles attacks very quickly, killing the trees almost overnight, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Leaves then hang on the dead trees for weeks or months. Trees are dying everywhere, said Don Spence, a certified arborist who owns Native Florida Landscapes in Ormond Beach. The infestation has spread across Volusia and Flagler counties and has been spotted in the Ocala National Forest and up and down the St. Johns River. The beetles drill into redbay trees and the female beetles inoculate the tree with rapidly multiplying fungi, according to Farley Palmer, who owns Palmer Biological Services in New Smyrna Beach. He said the bugs feed on fungus, which block the trees capillaries and pre-vent water from getting into the limbs, branches and leaves. The leaves quickly change from green to brown. Specialists said the only hope is for trees to be treated early enough with a fungicide that protects the roots and keeps the fungus from taking hold. Palmer said that can cost between $100 and $300 per tree. Gun buyback nets 459 weapons MANATEE Hundreds of firearms are off the streets in Manatee County thanks to the sher-iffs gun buyback program. The Bradenton Herald reports 459 firearms were turned in exchange for cash. The sheriff gave participants $50 for hand-guns, $100 for shotguns or rifles and $150 for assault weapons. Sheriff Brad Steube said the goal of the program is to make sure weapons dont fall into the hands of criminals. The countys buyback program in 2009 collected 400 firearms. This year, the county gave out $37,950 during the eight-hour buyback. Most of those weapons were from people who had a firearm within their fam-ily for years that they had no use for.Attack on swan leads to charges ORLANDO A central Florida man has been charged with cruelty to animals after his dog attacked a swan. The Orlando Police Department says 51-year-old Lawrence Labonte intentionally had his dog attack the swan at Lake Eola Park last Sunday. The swan suffered nerve damage and had to be euthanized. Labonte was charged with fighting or baiting ani-mals in addition to cruelty to animals.Neglected horses up for adoption OCALA More than a dozen Paso Fino horses in Marion County are up adoption because their owner can no longer care for them. The Ocala Star Banner reports 13 of the horses at the farm were allowed to roam free and have never been handled. Morgan Silver of the Horse Protection Association of Florida is currently taking care of the horses. Silver says some of the horses were emaciated and they had never had any hoof care. The association held a tack sale on Saturday and two of the younger horses were there for viewing. Silver says the horse breed known for its fine step and Spanish heritage are easy to handle and are loyal.Husband charged with wifes death MIDDLEBURG A Florida woman is dead after being run over by her husband in the driveway of their home Saturday night after an argument, authori-ties said.

Deuteronomy 7:9 Valerie Harper not saying good-bye NEW YORK S he has incurable cancer, but Valerie Harper says shes not ready to say good-bye and shes keeping herself open to a miracle. In her first TV interview since disclosing her diagnosis last week, the 1970s sitcom star tells the Today shows Savannah Guthrie that incurable is a tough word. People hear it as this death sentence, she explains. But Harper insists shes more than hopeful. I have an intention to live each moment fully. Im not dying until I do, she says. I promise I wont. Harper, 73, has been diagnosed with a rare brain cancer and told she has as little as three months to live. She got the news less than two months ago during her book tour for her new memoir, I, Rhoda. Harper won fame playing Rhoda Morgenstern on TVs The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spinoff, Rhoda. She won four Emmys. Harper says it feels awful damn good to be open about (her illness), face it and see what you can do. If you die, youre not a failure. Youre just somebody who had cancer, and thats the outcome. In the meantime, shes telling herself to keep your thoughts open to infinite possibility and keep yourself open to miracles. The interview aired on NBCs Today on Monday. In addition, Harper is scheduled to appear on Mondays edition of the syndicated talk show The Doctors.Daniel Radcliffe returns to London stage LONDON The time is coming maybe sooner than you expect when you look at Daniel Radcliffe and dont think Harry Potter. The 23-year-old actor has gone from boy wizard to Broadway hoofer to Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, whom he plays in new film Kill Your Darlings. He has several wildly different films lined up, and is soon to take to the London stage as star of Martin McDonaghs barbed comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan. The play gives audiences the chance to see Radcliffe in yet another new light, as Billy, a disabled orphan in 1930s Ireland who harbors a dream of Hollywood stardom. Cripple, which opens in June, is part of a West End season of plays overseen by director Michael Grandage, who has assembled an A-list group of actors that includes Radcliffe, Ben Whishaw, Judi Dench and Jude Law. Lawyer: Stephen Baldwin to avoid jail in tax case NEW CITY, N.Y. Stephen Baldwin will avoid jail and will have up to five years to pay $350,000 in back taxes and penal-ties, his lawyer said Monday. Attorney Russell Yankwitt said he and prosecutors tenta-tively agreed that Baldwin, youngest of the four acting Baldwin brothers, will admit in court this month that he repeatedly failed to file his New York state income tax returns. Baldwin, who starred in 1995s The Usual Suspects, is accused of skipping his 2008, 2009 and 2010 returns. The district attorney said Baldwin could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

Robotics team takes 4th in Orlando By FRANCIS DIAZ Special to the Reporter ORLANDO Team 3556 feverishly refreshed their phones to see the updated team rankings. They stood to their feet in a thunderous applause as the team was announced to be in the top eight of the competition. Columbia High Schools Robotics team, GET SMART, made it all the way to the final four semi-finals in the FIRST Orlando Regional Robotics Competition this weekend where they were rivaling 62 other teams from around the world. Its not as overwhelm ing as last year, but still overwhelming. The over whelming part was being in the top eight seed and pick ing teams that have been doing this for 15 years, said Brayden Thomas, 17, CAD designer for the team. The team, consisting of 28 students and 10 adult mentors, spent six long weeks designing and build ing their robot using game rules and standards given to them in January by FIRST. We had a lot of growth in our team this year a lot of new students, new mentors and new sponsors. With any growth comes growing pains and weve definitely had some of those, said Celena Crews, team coach. Building a robot that has the ability to both throw Frisbees and climb a tower is quite the daunting task. Crews can recall sitting in the CHS commons at 2:30 a.m. watching the robot climb, realizing that a group of high school students and a few mentors built a robot that climbs a 7.5-foot tower. It was just amazing that a group of high school stu dents could do that, she said. Upon their return the team will begin doing out reach at local elementary schools, using its robot to share its love of science and engineering.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com Residents are asked to avoid the area of Richardson Middle School Wednesday as first responders and emer gency services personnel conduct an active shooter exercise on the schools campus. The exercise will involve law enforcement, emer gency medical personnel, emergency management personnel and other first responders who will be training on tactics used to handle an emergency situ ation on a school campus. Columbia County Sheriffs Office officials said the exercise will be contained to the school campus and no live ammu nition or weapons will be allowed on campus. However, controlled simu lated weapons and ammu nition will be used. Seifert warned that the training exercise will feature smoke, simulated gun shots and simulated explosions. He said peo ple living in the immedi ate vicinity of the school have been told about the training exercise and the sheriffs office wants to notify the public to avoid a public panic. Officials will have the school campus secured and no unauthorized personnel will be able to enter. Residents and school visitors are asked to limit their business and traffic around the Richardson Middle School campus from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday. Shooter exercise being held at RMS JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter presents the National Exemplary Program Recognition trophy to the agencys school resource officers on Monday. The School Safety Advocacy Council awarded the school resource deputy program the trophy at the National Conference on Bullying in Orlando on Feb. 27, in recognition of its outstanding anti-bullying efforts and com mitment to keeping students safe. Pictured are (from left) deputies David Jones, Jimmy Finnell, Kimberly Ray, Sgt. Tim Ball, Sheriff Hunter and deputies Clint Dicks, Steven Khachigan and David Milligan. AWARD: School resource deputies honored Continued From Page 1A to ending bullying. I am extremely proud of the school resource deputies and the accomplishments theyve had to date, Hunter said. They have been working very hard with the school administration to ensure weve got a solid program with education and working with the children. Theyre the unsung heroes out there. I know there has been some concern out there about the safety at the schools, but with the group that we have out there, I feel very confident that folks can bring their children to school and not have to worry about them. During the news conference, Hunter unveiled the award a glass plaque from the School Safety Advocacy Council to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office School Resource Deputy Program. The inscription reads: In recogni tion of your outstanding anti-bullying efforts and commitment to keeping students safe. The plaque also indicates the award was given Feb. 27 at the National Conference on Bullying in Orlando. More than 30 people, many of them sheriffs office employees, attended the 20-minute news conference at the sheriffs office operations center east of town. Sgt. Tim Ball Deputy spoke about the importance of the anti-bullying campaign and where Kimberly Ray was recognized for completing the award application and collecting the data. The school resource deputies established a program called Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) which was implemented in all county middle schools. School resource deputies also developed a bullying curriculum, which was presented to hundreds of students at the secondary-school level. The initiatives addressed con cerns and educated students about bullying. A separate curriculum was established and presented on cyber bullying. The hard work the deputies put into the program was recognized nationally on Feb. 27 when CCSO representatives were awarded the National Exemplary Program Recognition Award from the School Safety Advocacy Council during the National Conference on Bullying in Orlando. The council is a nationally recognized group, and it recognized just two agencies from across the country one being the Columbia County Sheriffs Office School Resource Deputy Program. Hunter said additional awards may come to the program. This is not it, he said. Were hopeful that this year we are in the running for the school resource pro gram for the state of Florida for the year, he said. Senate bill would raise some contribution limits Associated Press TALLAHASSEE A Senate com mittee took the first step Monday toward finding common ground with the House to raise campaign contri bution limits while eliminating a type of political committee that critics say is abused by some lawmakers. Theres still a long way to go before the chambers agree and bill sponsor Sen. Jack Latvala openly questioned the need for items in the legisla tion (SB 1382). He acknowledged the simple reason he filed it. Peace and tranquility with the House, said Latvala, R-Palm Harbor. The Senate bill raises campaign contribution limits for statewide office from $500 to $3,000 per election while keeping legislative campaign contri butions at the current $500. It also eliminates committees of continuous existence, or CCEs, which are used to raise money thats supposed to be spent on contributions to candidates, other political committees and politi cal parties. They cant spend money on things like television ads or other means to sway voters for or against candidates and causes. Its a House priority to eliminate the CCEs while the Senate was seek ing to tighten regulations on them to prevent lawmakers for using them to take unlimited contributions and then spend the money on expensive meals, entertaining and travel that dont have anything to do with the political purpose. But some senators noted that law makers can still open other types of FLOW : Workshop set Continued From Page 1A Bradford Countys rep resentative for FLOW, Paul Still, wrote a letter that pointed out some of the structural problems with the organization. He had two main points. Still asked if the groups geographical area was too large with too many competing interests rep resented. Also, because the group covers multiple counties spanning hun dreds of miles and has had difficulty scheduling committee meetings, he asked if the group should need to follow Floridas open meetings laws. Those issues will be dis cussed at the workshop, Williams said.
C ourage, leadership and stagecraft: These active ingredients would help congressional Republicans maximize their significant, if underused, pow-ers. Republicans should crawl out from under their desks and remind each other that they still control the House of Representatives. GOP senators also can filibuster and fre-quently offer amendments to many matters. Yes, Democrats operate the Senate and occupy the White House. But Republicans need not endure endless donkey kicks. The GOP still has considerable influence and should muster the courage to wield it. Republicans should recognize that President Barack Obama is not 1,000 feet tall. He is a mere mortal whose job approval dropped from 51 percent last week to 47 percent this week, according to a Gallup survey. Meanwhile, Obamas job disapproval climbed from 40 per-cent to 46 percent. Americans may be getting sick and tired of a president who was caught lying when he blamed Republicans for the sequester. Obama actually proposed this 2.4 percent automatic budget cut. Even worse, Obama literally victimizes the American people. He aims to create pandemonium that might justify his fiscal madness. Obama deliberately inflicts pain by cancelling White House tours starting Saturday, due to staffing reductions resulting from seques-tration, the White House Visitors Office claims. In reality, volunteers lead these tours. Obama also endan-gers law-abiding citizens by freeing some 2,000 illegal-alien detainees from federal custody since before the sequester, even as $8 billion in unobligated funds clog the Homeland Security Departments coffers. Beyond the courage to confront Obama, Republicans need leader-ship. House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and Senate GOP chief Mitch McConnell of Kentucky are unsteady amid Obamas menace. Last week, Boehner moaned about two now-expired bills that the House passed last year featur-ing smarter budget cuts within the sequesters $85 billion reduction in overall spending growth. Rather than look back in anger, Boehner should deploy his members. Republicans on the House floor should challenge Obamas dark vision. When House Republicans last week offered Obama more flexibil-ity to prioritize spending, he balked. In short: Dont empower me to finance aid for poor kids rather than another season of Downton Abbey on PBS. Boehner swallowed Obamas rejection and went home. Instead, the House should adopt a stand-alone bill that would let Obama shift money from extrava-gant, foolish programs to things like meat inspection, border patrol, childhood vaccines and other activi-ties that truly promote health and safety. Boehner should make House Democrats choose sides: Obamas nightmare of padlocked airport-con-trol towers and abandoned autistic children or the GOPs vision of legitimate services within a fiscally responsible limited government and a president empowered to avoid the horrors that haunt him. Now, add stagecraft.Dont simply pass this bill and have an anonymous functionary forward it to the Senate, perhaps via pneumatic tube. Instead, Boehner and the Houses entire Republican majority should carry this bill across the U.S. Capitol Building, through the Rotunda, and greet McConnell and his gathered caucus outside the Senate chamber. Before flashing cameras and scribbling journalists, House Republicans physically would deliver this legisla-tion to their Senate counterparts. GOP senators then would offer the House bill as an amendment and make Democratic senators decide if they would prefer for Obama to pos-sess a campaign issue or an instru-ment for more prudent governance. When Obama blames the GOP for using the sequester to sell stale meat, neglect the southern fron-tier and unleash whopping cough, Republicans should televise vivid images of their efforts to prevent the impending doom that Obama imagines in speech after speech. Such dramatic GOP action will make it increasingly difficult for Obama to point fingers at Republicans, which is his default posture. And that will make it tougher for Democrats to recapture the House in 2014 and hand Obama what he desperately craves: two capstone years of hard-Left, one-party, Democratic rule. Republican courage, leadership and stagecraft can deny Obama his dream. Let not these gifts be as rare as gold, frankincense and myrrh. OPINION Tuesday, March 12, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding coun-ties by Community Newspapers Inc. We believe strong newspapers build strong communities Newspapers get things done! Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers. This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman I n hindsight, Gov. Rick Scotts flawed attempt to purge Floridas voter rolls of noncitizens last fall almost appears quaint. The real threat to the integrity of elections is in absentee ballots. Exhibit A: South Florida, where hackers in three primary elections requested absentee ballots for 2,552 voters. Elections officials blocked the scammers, the ballots were not sent and prosecutors are investigat-ing. But it is a cautionary tale that has so far been largely unaddressed in Tallahassee. The House elec-tions bill passed last week makes it easier for voters to cure mistakes in submitting absentee ballots but is silent on curtailing absentee ballot fraud. As the Miami Herald recently reported, MiamiDade County elections officials were almost immedi-ately suspicious in July of a flurry of online requests for absentee ballots for the primary election. They called several of the voters whose names were on the requests and confirmed the requests were fraudulent. Elections staff blocked the offending IP addresses from submitting more forms. But the hackers adapt-ed, and over more than two weeks they submitted thousands more that were subsequently traced to just 15 IP addresses most of them overseas. No absentee ballots were ever mailed, and it remains a mystery who was responsible. All the winners in the 2012 primary in the three races, one Democratic congressional primary and two Republican legislative primaries, won by large mar-gins. But the sophistication the hackers only target-ed infrequent voters who had not requested an absen-tee ballot suggests a tie to a candidates campaign. Under state law only candidates, political committees and political parties have access to absentee ballot request information before the election. Prosecutors have reopened their investigation following the Herald report and a realization that they were not aware of all the evidence due to miscommu-nication with election officials. While the security at the elections office worked, what about the next hack-er who may be more sophisticated? A grand jury sug-gested requiring voters to use a password to request an absentee ballot, not unlike the passwords required by banks, libraries and others. That is not under consideration in Tallahassee. Nor is tightening up the process by which an absentee ballot can be redirected to an address other than the voters, another avenue for fraud that surfaced during the election. One reform that has surfaced, in SB 600 by Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, would require all absentee ballots to include the signature of a witness on the outside of the envelope before it is mailed to elections supervisors for counting. But the benefit of that additional step is unclear. Supervisors contend there would be limited means to verify the witness signature. The Miami-Dade hacking attempt only became public because of a grand jury investigation stemming from another absentee ballot scandal in Miami-Dade in which two so-called boleteros, or ballot brokers, were arrested before the primary and charged with voter fraud. Theres mounting evidence that its Floridas mail ballots not its Election Day polls that are most susceptible to fraud.

Germans who turned out by the thousands to demolish the Berlin Wall in 1989 have now turned out almost 24 years later in slightly smaller numbers to try to save the wall -whats left of it. After World War II, Germany was divided into two zones, east and west. Berlin itself --located 200 miles inside Soviet-controlled East Germany -was divided into sec-tors, each governed by one of the occupying powers: the Soviet Union, the United States, Great Britain and France. The Soviet Union, operating through a puppet regime, began to impose its brand of communism on its zone, featuring shortages, ration-ing and a crushing secret-police presence. East Germans -particularly the young and educated -began to flee to democracy in West Berlin, where they could put down roots or find transportation to the rest of West Germany. By 1961, at least 2.5 mil-lion East Germans had gone west. The communist regime faced the very real prospect that it would be left with only the old and unemploy-able. So, that year, the East Germans built a wall around West Berlin: 96 miles of barbed wire, concrete blocks, watch towers and a death strip where border guards had orders to shoot to kill would-be escapees. In the 1980s, the Kremlin began to ease its grip on Iron Curtain countries. With fewer constraints from Moscow, both Hungary and Czechoslovakia began opening their borders and East Germans quickly took advantage of that escape hatch. East Berlin authorities felt obliged to offer limited access to West Berlin, but the announcement was bungled. On Nov. 9, 1989, thou-sands of East Berliners, believing they were free to leave, showed up at the wall and swept past the bor-der guards. East and West Germany were reunited in 1990. By 1990, the wall had largely been torn down. Visitors have to search hard to find traces of it. One is a 3/4-mile stretch, brightly painted and covered with graffiti. However, a real-estate developer won city per-mission to raze a 22-yard section to provide access to a luxury housing project. Segments of the wall are nonetheless worth preserving as a reminder of the lengths to which a totalitar-ian regime will go to control its own people. If you didnt see it, you might not believe it.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246ABy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA small creek winds through the Florida Gateway College campus, but the water played a valuable role in teach-ing local high school students about the conditions of the Floridan Aquifer dur-ing the Suwannee Regional Envirothon Competition on Friday. Five-member teams from Columbia County and bordering counties competed for first place in five different categories: aquatic ecology, soil and land use, forestry, wildlife and a current environmental issue. At the aquatics table, Dan Rountree of Current Issues, Inc. in Gainesville, used water hauled from the colleges creek to test the students on identifying organisms and measuring the creeks pH levels. This year the Envirothon focused on Sustainable Rangeland Management, examining Montanas traditional and non-traditional agricultural uses. However, Florida Gateway College professor John Rowe localized the issue by focusing on springsheds, an important area of land that recharges the springs. Water is becoming more scarce, he said. I think people are beginning to real-ize we need to protect our water and keep it clean. The annual Envirothon at Florida Gateway College reaches students in par-ticipating high schools to help further their environmental science education. The overall winner of the competition progresses to the Florida Envirothon held at Hillsborough River State Park in April. This year, the Union County GMOs won first place, followed closely by Suwannee High Schools Oilspill and Green Team. Its making them aware of the problems we have, Rowe said. Were probably not going to change the habits of older people, but these students are the people we need to keep our environment clean. Suwannee County Conservation District employee Michael Brown believes envi-ronmental science is becoming a hot topic within the United States and the world. The Envirothon, he said, catches the students early enough to make a differ-ence. According to the Florida Envirothon website, the education program provides hands-on, field-oriented experience that develops the students problem-solving and communication skills. Students in 9th through 12th grades are allowed to compete. The event brings together local organizations, such as the Florida Forest Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, with students interested in environmental science. For the 2013 Suwannee Regional Envirothon, students from Columbia High School, Union County High School, Suwannee High School and Brandford High School participated. I like learning about the different habitats and how to help with the environmen-tal problems that effect them, Suwannee High School student Shannon Selph said. Her teammate James Henderson added that what surprised him most about Fridays event was learning how little the average person knew about environmental issues facing the United States today. Each area of study created a test to challenge the students. At the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions table, the facilitators set up a collection of animal skulls, animal droppings and habitats. The students guessed the animal such as a nutria, armadillo or woodpecker each item belonged to. At the soil station, Alfred Jones and Al Oliver of the USDA, as well as Stan Peacock of the Leon County Soil and Water Conservation District, helped stu-dents identify various different soils found in Florida. Soil is the basics of everything, Oliver said. We hope they walk away with an understanding of the soil. However, Peacock believed the most important part of the Envirothon was introducing the high schoolers to the various career options available in environ-mental science. At the forestry station, each team was responsible for naming marked trees on the Florida Gateway College campus, as well as tools used in forestry. Fifty-four percent of the state is active forest land, Ranger Brian Cobble said. It has a big environmental impact, so it seemed like a natural fit to be included. Rountree and Rowe, as well as representatives from the Suwannee County Conservation District, hope to eventually bring the national event to Florida, as the events location determines the current issue. If we dont have it here in the next five years, I believe the springs are going to be dead, Rountree said. Human activities are slowly depleting and polluting the Floridan Aquifer, a large freshwater resource located under North Florida. Overpumping threatens the water levels of Floridas drinking water. Rountree said recent studies conducted on the Ichetucknee Springs report levels of pharmaceutical drugs found in the water, which has been known to change the hab-its of schooling fish. Theres more freshwater springs here than anywhere else in the world, he said. Once they are gone, they may come back, but it wont be in your lifetime. Envirothon teaches conservation AMANDA WILLIAMSON/ Lake City ReporterFlorida Forest Service Ranger Andy Lamborn instructs Bra nford High School students at the 2013 Suwannee Regional Envirothon Competition. Students competed in five different categories, i ncluding forestry. There is a fine line between overload ing the forest and maintaining it, keeping it sustainable, said Union County Fore st Ranger Jay Tucker, who helped Lamborn during the ev ent. From staff reportsFlorida Gateway Colleges Brain Bowl Team placed 19th at the National Academic Quiz Tournaments Community College Championship Tournament, which took place March 1-2 in St. Louis. The team, consisting of Billy Greer, Clayton Kerr, Linden Barney, Stephanie Lansford, and Ashley Jones, had been selected to com-pete at the national tourna-ment as a result of the NAQT Sectional tournament at Chipola College in January. That performance had them ranked 19th nationally by the NAQT and earned them an invitation to the field of 24 teams to compete for the Community College National Championship. FGCs Brain Bowl team also competed at the nation-al tournament two years ago, when they placed 22nd in the nation. In addition to FGC, ten other Florida College System teams earned invi-tations to the National Championship. Were very proud of the Brain Bowl program at Florida Gateway College, and especially the students who represented Florida Gateway College at the national level, said FGC President Dr. Chuck Hall. To have such a young pro-gram score so high is a real tribute to the students and to the program and to their leader, James Givvines. Colleges are all about aca-demics and activities and representing oneself and growing. The Brain Bowl certainly does that and our students certainly exempli-fied that and achieved at a very high level.

MEDICAID: Panel says noContinued From Page 1Ashown that we can never turn away or scale back? Bean asked. The Senate committees rejection comes a week after a House panel also voted against Medicaid expansion, put-ting the GOP-controlled Legislature at odds with Gov. Rick Scott. Scott wants to expand Medicaid for three years or as long as the federal government pays 100 percent of the bill, calling it a compassionate and common sense choice. The feds are slated to pay 90 percent after the three years. In a prepared statement shortly after the Senate vote, Scott appeared will-ing to consider alterna-tives proposed by law-makers: I am confident that the Legislature will do the right thing and find a way to protect taxpayers and the unin-sured in our state while the new healthcare law provides 100 percent fed-eral funding. Negrons proposal could save about $127 million a year compared to expansion of tradi-tional Medicaid. He said Florida Healthy Kids is a respected program state-wide that lives within its budgets, has plenty of doctor participation and is required to spend a certain amount of money on patient care to pre-vent administrative costs from ballooning. Its not clear whether Negrons plan would win federal approval. States can charge co-pays and still get 100 percent reim-bursement from the feds, but premiums are more complicated. Lawmakers in both chambers have repeat-edly expressed concerns that Medicaid is a broken system. Many fear the federal government will back out of its promise to pay, leaving the state on the hook for billions. The straight party line vote, angered some Democrats who felt they werent given time to con-sider alternative plans, including Negrons, which was presented at the last minute after weeks of hearings. We shouldnt force the Floridians who dont have adequate access health care to bear the brunt of our procrasti-nation, said Sen. Chris Smith, D-Oakland Park. If Florida expands Medicaid, state econo-mists project it would receive about $51 billion over the next decade and have to spend much about $5.5 billion.

Today, with all 32 teams under the $123 million salary cap, the checkbooks open up. Flooded free agent market opens today By BARRY WILNERAssociated PressMost of the big names hitting free agency arent big stars anymore. Sure, Ed Reed is coming off helping a Super Bowl season with Baltimore, Wes Welker catches 100 passes every year, and Dashon Goldson is an All-Pro. But this crop is more about aging defensive players such as Charles Woodson, Brian Urlacher and Ronde Barber. And then are some solid but hardly unforget-table receivers and running backs: Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace, Reggie Bush and Michael Turner. When full free agency begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. EDT, with all 32 teams under the $123 million sal-ary cap, the bidding wars might be furious for a while. Or perhaps not, consider-ing the dangers of signing players beyond their peak years to rich deals that can financially hamstring teams Teams can begin signing players after 4 p.m. NFL continued on 2B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White Highs Shea Chesney quickly scampers to first base after bunting a pitch during a Feb. 22 game against Santa Fe. ASSOCIATED PRESSTiger Woods holds the Gene Sarazen Cup for winning the Cadillac Championship golf tournament on Sunday in Doral. Woods wins another World ChampionshipBy DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressDORAL That red shirt is starting to look ruthless on Sunday again. One year after Tiger Woods hobbled off the Blue Monster, he picked up the pace in his march to the Masters. Woods delivered two quick birdies to take the drama out of Doral, and two late bogeys only made his victory in the Cadillac Championship seem closer than it really was. Woods had full control of his game and never let anyone get closer than three shots until he had locked up his 17th World Golf Championship title. With a conservative bogey that didnt matter on the final hole, he closed with a 1-under 71. For the first time in five years, Woods has two wins before the Masters. And both of them were Tiger back in full force at Doral with victory. WOODS continued on 3B Great Heights Keystone blanks Fort White, 12-0, in district play By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White Highs softball team is young this season and the Lady Indians contin-ued to take their bumps on Monday. Another set of Lady Indians in the form of Keystone Heights High travelled into Fort White for a district game and came away with a 12-0 win. Most of the damage was done by Kelsey Waters. Waters not only pitched a one hitter in which she struck out six Fort White batters and didnt issue a walk in seven innings, but she was also masterful at the plate. Waters finished the day 5for-5 at the plate and had three doubles and two singles. Shes a great ball player, Fort White head coach Cassie Sparks said. Shes a veteran and Keystone Heights has a strong pro-gram around her. We were able to hit her at times, but they made plays. Thats what we expect to see in district play. Unfortunately right now we are a young team both mentally and physically. Waters started the scoring off with an RBI-double in the first inning to score Ashley Maynard and Kayla Walker doubled in Waters for a 2-0 lead. Keystone Heights added three more runs in the second inning with Waters scoring Maynard for the fifth run of the game. Waters had an RBI and a run in the fourth inning as Keystone took a 7-0 lead and doubled in Walker in the fifth to give Keystone Heights a 9-0 lead. She scored her final run in the seventh inning off an error.

There is talent out there, just maybe not talent that commands top dollar. Especially considering the risks of such a deal. We did this study to try to determine what the hit rate was, says Bill Polian, who built the Bills, Panthers and Colts into Super Bowl teams and now is analyst for ESPN and SiriusXM. It ends up in our study being about what it was for the draft, right around 50 percent, slightly above that. You then get into the qualitative judgment or subjective judgment of at what cost? So player A, who cost you $12 million a year, is he a success if he starts or is he a success if he helps you get to the playoffs? The number of free agents who helped their teams get to the playoffs last season is impressive. From the Super Bowl ros-ters alone are Baltimore safety Reed, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and LB-DE Paul Kruger; 49ers safety Goldson, DT Isaac Sopoaga, TE Delanie Walker and WR Randy Moss. And you can throw in Welker, Turner, Sam Baker, Dan Koppen, Andre Smith and Fred Davis. Both backfields are loaded with candidates without contracts. Joining Reed, Goldson, Woodson and Barber among defensive backs available are Aqib Talib, Brent Grimes, Kenny Phillips, LaRon Landry and brother Dawan Landry, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Keenan Lewis, and Quentin Jammer. Tailbacks and fullbacks include Bush, Turner, Steven Jackson, Ahmad Bradshaw, Jerome Felton, Shonn Greene and Rashard Mendenhall. Polian warns about one position being a risk in the draft: wide receiver. But he says in free agency, thats not necessarily the case. So spending big bucks on Welker, Wallace, Jennings, or taking a gamble on Moss, Deion Branch or Julian Edelman might pay off. Of high interest is how longtime stars with their current teams fare on the marketplace. Urlacher is 34, Reed is 35, Woodson is 36 and Barber is 37. Do owners and general managers take a chance that each of those peren-nial Pro Bowlers have enough left to bring more than experience and lead-ership to their teams? There are clubs, we were one of them, that said if a guys 27 years of age or above, were probably not going to go for a long-term deal at big money, Polian says. But if you feel youre one quality receiver away and the physical exam turns out to be OK, you might do it. Again, that is what makes free agency interesting. What also made the grab bag of extra interest was a three-day window allowing teams to talk to represen-tatives of unrestricted free agents. The idea was to eliminate tampering. I think its fair to say that everybody will be interest-ed to see how it works out, what the results of it are, Polian said. I wouldnt say everybody was enthusias-tic about it. We all had some reservation. But, on balance, I think its fair to say that we felt that it was something that would at least bring some organization to what had been a very chaotic pro-cess. Agents can talk to clubs, they can go back to the old club with what one would assume would be a bona fide offer or some parameters. They can gauge who is inter-ested and who is not inter-ested. Beginning today, NFL fans interest surely will be raised, even if no footballs are being thrown, kicked of fumbled. Brown wins Puerto Rico OpenAssociated PressRIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico Scott Brown went from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory Sunday in the Puerto Rico Open when he made a 4-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole to beat Fabian Gomez and capture his first PGA Tour title. Brown closed with a 2-under 70 to finish at 20-under par 268 for the tournament. Lake City native Blayne Barber finished eight shots back for the tournament at 12-under par.
Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 3B3Bsports WOODS: Dominates at Doral Continued From Page 1Bdominant. Thats how I know I can play, Woods said. Thats the thing. To be able to bring it out a couple times so far this year and then be able to close and get the Ws on top of that thats nice. Any time I can win prior to Augusta, it always feels good. And to think it was one year ago Sunday that Woods withdrew after 11 holes in the final round at Doral because of tightness in his left Achilles tendon, the same injury that had cost him to sit out most of the previous summer. It created uncertainty about his health and whether he could ever get his game back. False alarm.Woods now has five wins in the last year, the most of anyone in the world, and he can return to No. 1 with a win at Bay Hill in two weeks. He won by two shots over Steve Stricker, who might want to claim a share of this trophy. Woods ran into Stricker on the putting green Wednesday afternoon, and in a 45-minute session, Stricker helped him with his posture over putts. Woods left feeling as good as he did at Torrey Pines, where he won by four shots. And it showed. Woods made 27 birdies this week, one short of his personal best on the PGA Tour, and he took the fewest putts (100) over 72 holes in any tour event. Thank you to Steve for the putting lesson, Woods said at the trophy presenta-tion. It was one of those weeks where I felt pretty good about how I was play-ing, made a few putts and got it rolling. Stricker, playing a parttime schedule, picked up his second runner-up fin-ish in just three starts. He closed with a 68, and had no regrets about offering Woods some help. At times you kick yourself, Stricker said with a laugh. Hes a good friend. We talk a lot about putting. Its good to see him playing well. Asked if he would have won without that chance meeting with Stricker, Woods hedged a little. I would like to say I probably would have, but ... he said with a smile. Ive been putting at home and it just still hadnt felt right. I still was a little bit off. ... He basically got me in the same position that I was at Torrey. So once he put me in there where I felt comfortable, I said, Well, this is not too foreign. This is what I was a month or so ago. And I started rolling it and it felt really, really good. The Masters is a month away, and Woods is sure to be the favorite. Majors and World Golf Championships are the best because you know you are playing against the best players, Woods said. Thats what makes wins like this special. Thats why I love to compete. Kenseth wins in VegasBy GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressLAS VEGAS Matt Kenseth won on his 41st birthday for his new Joe Gibbs Racing team, barely holding off Kasey Kahne for his third victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday. Kenseth earned his 25th career victory in just his third start in the JGR Toyota after leaving Roush Fenway Racing in the off-season. He took the lead away from Kahne out of a late restart and fended off Kahnes Chevrolet over the final laps, adding another trophy to his Las Vegas vic-tories in 2003 and 2004. I was real nervous all day, Kenseth said. (Kahne) had the best car. I told (crew chief) Jason (Ratcliff) with about 12 to go that I was sorry we were going to lose. We were just too tight. ... We didnt have the fastest car there, but we had it where we needed it to be. Pole sitter Brad Keselowski finished third, with hometown driver Kyle Busch in fourth and Carl Edwards fifth. Jimmie Johnson, the overall points leader, was sixth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. seventh. Defending Vegas champion Tony Stewart finished 11th, while Denny Hamlin was 15th. Kenseth is just the third NASCAR driver to win on his birthday, joining Cale Yarborough who did it twice and Busch. His win was the 50th for Toyota in Sprint Cup Series competition. Kenseth has won at least one race in 11 of his 14 full seasons in the Sprint Cup series, but the first 13 were all in Fords with Roush Fenway, the team that gave him his break in NASCAR and fostered his develop-ment into a likely Hall of Famer. Kenseths decision to leave for a seat on Gibbs team was an open secret for much of last season, although the veteran star never really explained his move. The 400-mile race was the first real test for NASCARs new Gen-6 car on the inter-mediate tracks theyre built to race. Although Hamlin commanded the weeks headlines when his pessi-mism about the car drew a stiff $25,000 fine from NASCAR, most drivers were curious how the Gen-6 would work in its ideal 1.5-mile environment. Any drivers who still think its too tough to pass in the new car must not have been watching Busch, who made two lengthy charges up to early leads, doing it both before and after a pit-row speeding penalty dropped him back to 18th. Busch charged through the field with impressive ease and took the lead out of a restart with a daredevil move on the apron with 102 laps to go. He went three wide and got underneath Kahne while kicking up dust well below the white line. Kahne set the qualifying speed record on the Vegas track last year, but rain wiped out qualifying this week. He reclaimed the lead and held it until Kenseth nosed ahead out of another restart with 36 laps left when Kahne had trouble getting out of pit row, nearly hitting Stewart. I had an unbelievable car throughout the whole race, Kahne said. We just came out, I think, sixth (out of the pit). Tough to say we would have got by him anyway. I had a great day. I drove so hard every single lap today, and thats just the new Gen-6 car. It was a lot of fun. I love it. The Gen-6 is still a work in progress, however. Several drivers reported various problems with their cars early on, with Clint Bowyer and Stewart both dropping far back in the opening laps. After three days of chilly weather in the desert, warmer tem-peratures Sunday changed the tracks feel, and teams struggled to adjust to the slickness. Danica Patrick, the pole winner two weeks ago at Daytona, struggled with her car from the start, going two laps down by the 60th lap and later getting penal-ized for a tire violation. She finished 33rd. ASSOCIATED PRESSDriver Matt Kenseth holds up the trophy as the celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Seri es auto race on Sunday in Las Vegas. Chipper in pinstripes? Yanks Cashman triedBy BEN WALKERAssociated PressVIERA Chipper Jones putting on pinstripes? The banged-up New York Yankees would love to have him. General man-ager Brian Cashman even said so Monday, express-ing interest in the retired Atlanta Braves star. Hed be perfect, Cashman said at Yankees camp in Tampa. Id take Larry in a heartbeat. I think everybody would. The eight-time All-Star third baseman better known by his nickname than actual first name quickly ended such talk. Enough with the rumors! Jones tweeted. While I am flattered about the speculation of being enticed out of retirement, Im happy with life as a bad golfer! Pretty much what everyone figured. I can imagine a lot of things in baseball, Braves coach and former third baseman Terry Pendleton said, but Chipper playing for the Yankees isnt one of them. I think youd have a lot of people in Atlanta pretty mad if that happened. Hes a man of his word and he says hes done, he said. But it might help the Yankees with their attendance. I think a lot of Mets fans would come over to Yankee Stadium to boo him. Still, it was a fun thought Jones and Derek Jeter together on the left side of the infield. At least for a minute. He has the utmost respect for the Yankees organization, but his legacy is and will always be with the Braves, Jones agent, B.B. Abbott, told The Associated Press in a text message. Jones bowed out last fall after playing all 19 seasons in Atlanta, hitting .303 with 468 home runs. A month shy of turning 41, Jones recently spent a few days at spring training with his old team. In a jam because of injuries, Cashman just threw out the idea. I needed to check it off my list. I had to exorcise that demon, he said. I got my answer quick like 30 minutes, he said. The Yankees are on the prowl, however. They are missing third baseman Alex Rodriguez. Vikings trade WR Harvin to SeahawksBy DAVE CAMPBELL AND JON KRAWCZYNSKIAssociated PressMINNEAPOLIS Percy Harvin is on his way to Seattle to join the Seahawks. The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to trade the unhappy receiver to Seattle for a package of draft picks that includes the Seahawks first-round selection next month, No. 25 overall. A person with knowledge of the deal confirmed the details to The Associated Press on Monday on condi-tion of anonymity because the trade wont be official until Harvin passes a phys-ical. Foxsports.com first reported the trade and also said the Seahawks included a seventh-round pick this year and a mid-round selection in 2014 in exchange for Harvin, who was producing at an All-Pro level until badly spraining his left ankle last Nov. 4 in a game at Seattle. He was placed on injured reserve a month later, abruptly end-ing a season that began so strongly. The 24-year-old led the NFL in total yards, including rushing, receiv-ing and returning, at the time of his injury. Teams arent allowed to comment on trades or free-agent deals until the new league year begins Tuesday afternoon. Harvins arrival in Seattle will give second-year quar-terback Russell Wilson a dynamic playmaker and hard-nosed runner who has gained the bulk of his yard-age after first contact. His departure from Minnesota leaves an even bigger void in a group of receivers that was already one of the thin-nest in the NFL. The Vikings, though, were in a bind, despite general manager Rick Spielmans repeated decla-ration that the organization had no intent to trade Harvin. He first caused a stir last June 19 when he expressed unspecified dissatisfaction with some things about the team. He clarified his feelings a bit after the sea-son started by acknowl-edging a lack of under-standing about his role in offensive coordinator Bill Musgraves scheme. The Vikings lined him up all over the field, includ-ing as a running back, but in an attempt to preserve his health often limited his snaps and turns as a kickoff returners, particularly over his first three years. Harvin was by far quarterback Christian Ponders favorite target, but the struggles of the passing attack that increased around midsea-son did not help Harvins mood. He was seen shouting at coach Leslie Frazier on the sideline after one failed pos-session inside the 20-yard line in the last game he played for the Vikings. The bubble screen pass they used so effectively early in the year to get Harvin the ball was bottled up more and more, especial-ly against the Seahawks. Ponder passed for only 63 yards in that game, a 34-24 loss. Harvin will enter the fifth and final season of his rookie deal with a $2.9 million salary thats well under market value. The Vikings have a history of giving their core players new contracts before they enter the final years of their current deals, and that obviously didnt happen with Harvin. As a slot receiver, as exceptional and varied as his skills are, Harvin didnt give them the tall, fast, game-breaking target on the outside that theyve been lacking since they got rid of Randy Moss.ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Sept. 9, 2012, file photo, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin runs with the ball against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Minneapolis.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I read the letter you ran on Dec. 21 from Dateless in Dayton. We have a few thoughts on the matter wed like to share with him and anyone else who is having bad luck getting responses on dat-ing websites. We are middle-aged and have been together for two years. Even though we deactivated our member-ships in the dating sites we were part of, we still get emails daily that So-and-So sent you a message. It appears these sites still show our profiles as active, allowing people to try to contact us. So its entirely possible that the women Dateless has contacted were inactive or expired members who were never able to see his messages. We would like to reassure Dateless that the problem may not be him. We would also like to encourage him not to give up on finding a mate. He needs to get out there and do the things he loves because he may end up meeting someone that way. If he covers all his bases and is himself, hell do OK. -HOPING TO BE HELPFUL, HUNTSVILLE, ALA. DEAR HELPFUL: Many readers wrote to point out that the problem Dateless is experiencing could be more about the idiosyncratic subscription rules on some dating web-sites than about the writer or the women he is con-tacting. Other experienced users shared their stories: DEAR ABBY: I can tell Dateless why hes not getting thanks, but no thanks notes from the women he contacts on the online dating service: Those women are most likely overwhelmed with responses. Before I met my husband 10 years ago, I signed up on a dating site, then left the house to run some errands. When I came back a couple of hours later, I had 75 responses! I tried to answer all of them, but I kept getting more and more, so I finally gave up. I can only imag-ine how many responses women get today with online dating even more popular than it was then. -SETTLED DOWN IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: How long does one have to wait before determining the person isnt interested or just hasnt had the chance to respond? Many sites offer a simple button push that sends a message say-ing you are not interested. It appears people are sim-ply taking the easy way out without any concern for others. And unfortunately, this doesnt happen only in online dating. -DAVID IN ST. LOUIS DEAR ABBY: Sadly for Dateless, many of us women who are also attempting online dating have learned the hard way that any response can quickly encourage a stalker who emails us or sends instant messages relentlessly. I consider myself to be a courteous person with Midwestern values, and I tried (initially) to politely respond to every-one one way or the other. It became exhausting because many of the men I sent a polite no, thank you to began demand-ing explanations, taking my reply as a maybe or insulting me for being stuck-up (and the com-munication quickly grew uglier from there). So please tell Dateless that its nothing personal -were just trying to avoid drama. -PAM IN PHOENIX DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Youll see through an intentional trap. Calling attention to the way you feel and what you want to see happen will give you an edge. Explore the pos-sibility by interacting more with an institution, govern-ment agency or an author-ity figure. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful while trav-eling or dealing with some-one in a position of author-ity. Sharing information and experience will lead to greater equality. Take on personal responsibility that will ensure you have a say regarding your residence. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont share your thoughts or plans if you feel threatened. Its impor-tant to be prepared before you take the plunge. A charming talker must be dealt with carefully. Put greater emphasis on tak-ing action instead of just talking about it. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Avoid sounding eager or self-assured. You may have an opportunity to advance, but if you stretch the truth about what you have to offer, you will end up falling short. Keep what you present simple and honest. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make changes that will speed up your task. Its how you apply your experi-ence and knowledge that will make you competitive. A change of location or fixing up your residence to suit your current needs will pay off. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Discuss whatever is bothering you, even if it will cause a ruckus. Relieving stress will be more important and can make a difference between being taken advantage of and walking away. Do whats best for you and youll find your way. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Change is inevitable. Embrace a challenge and voice your opinion. Its bet-ter to feel good about your future than to be caught in a no-win situation that will continue to fester. New beginnings will start with old goals. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Aggressive action will bring progressive results. Networking functions will allow you to build your business connections and offer your skills. Love is in the stars and a journey down a path with someone unique will bring you great joy. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Bide your time. Work on your presenta-tion. Make the changes at home that will help you accomplish your goals. Focus inward and care-fully plan the path you want to pursue. Dont be sidetracked by a jealous acquaintance. Embrace new beginnings. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Grab the ball and run. Use your skill and build the base you need to maintain your position. Dont let what someone else does lead to an impul-sive move that will make someone you need on your side question your ability. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Do your own thing and let your innova-tive imagination take you on a new journey. Greater possibilities are heading your way, but first you must get rid of the dead-weight and excessive hab-its that have held you back in the past. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to facts. Make a suggestion and follow through. Put partnerships, contracts and money mat-ters at the top of your list. Once you have a deal, you will be able to manipulate the outcome. Equality will lead to longevity. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
