By NICOLE WINFIELDAssociated PressVATICAN CITY From the end of the earth, the Catholic Church found a surprising new leader Wednes-day, a pioneer pope from Argentina who took the name Francis, a pastor rather than a manager to resurrect a church and faith in crisis. He is the first pontiff from the New World and the first non-European since the Middle Ages. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the archbishop of Buenos Aires who has spent nearly his entire career in Argentina, was a fast and fitting choice for the most unpredictable papal succession start to finish in at least six centuries. He is the first pope from the Americas, the first Jesuit and the first named Francis, after St. Francis of Assisi, the humble friar who dedicated his life to help-ing the poor. The last non-European pope was Syrias Gregory III from 731-41. You know that the work of the conclave is to give a bishop to Rome, the new pontiff said as he waved shyly to the tens of thou-sands who braved a cold rain in St. Peters Square. It seems as if my brother cardinals went to find him from the end of the earth, but here we are. Thank you for the welcome. The 76-year-old Bergoglio, said to have fin-ished second when Pope Benedict XVI was elected in 2005, was chosen on just the fifth ballot to replace the first pontiff to resign in 600 years. In the past century, only Benedict, John Paul I in 1978 and Pius XII in 1939 were elected faster. Francis election elated Latin Americans, who num-ber 40 percent of the worlds Catholics but have long been underrepresented in the church leadership. On Wednesday, drivers honked their horns in the streets of Buenos Aires and television announcers screamed with excitement at the news.

The organization, Allied Veterans of the World, runs nearly 50 Internet parlors with computerized slot machine-style games, which have come under scrutiny in Florida but are in a gray legal area. Even so, investigators said the charity was a fraud and executives gave precious little to veterans while lavish-ing millions on themselves, spending it on boats, beachfront condos and Maseratis, Ferraris and Porsches.

AROUND FLORIDA Court upholds sinkhole coverage TALLAHASSEE A Florida court has upheld a decision by state insurance regulators that property insurers must offer sink-hole loss coverage in an amount equal to the dwell-ing coverage limit. Farm Bureau asked the Office of Insurance Regulation to approve an amendment to its endorse-ment form that would limit sinkhole loss coverage to 25 percent of the overall coverage amount. When OIR rejected the Farm Bureau request, the insur-er turned to the courts. The 1st District Court of Appeal said Wednesday that deductibles are tied to casualty coverage limits in the base policy, conclud-ing the amount of sinkhole loss coverage is intended to be the same as the amount of coverage provid-ed in that policy. Property insurers are required to provide catastrophic ground cover collapse in addition to optional sink-hole coverage.Deputy rescues infant from fire DELTONA A Volusia County Sheriffs deputy says he was thinking of his son when he broke a window in a burning home and climbed inside to res-cue a baby girl from her playpen. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Deputy Byron Poteralski says his son is about the same age as the 1-year-old girl he rescued Tuesday in Deltona. Poteralski says Samantha Holley was standing outside the burning home when she suddenly remembered her niece was still inside. A sergeant tried going through the front door, but was prevented by heavy smoke. Meantime, Potrealski located the room the child was in and broke the window with a baton. The child was unresponsive, but he handed her to fire-fighters outside. She was taken to a hospital and is expected to be fine.Suspect arrested after 2 killed OCALA On Tuesday, the staff at the Vacation Host Inn in Ocala asked the Marion County Sheriffs Office to remove a resident from the motel. But authorities didnt have the grounds to arrest Kelvin Lee Coleman. Hours later, deputies say Coleman, 37, gunned down two employees who were standing on a motel balco-ny. Deputies tracked him down at a relatives house a short time later and he now faces two counts of first-degree murder. The Ocala Star-Banner reported a judge denied Coleman bail Wednesday morning, saying he is a danger to the community. During a first appearance hearing, Coleman smirked and cracked a half-smile as he walked toward the podium to face the judge. The shootings happened on a second floor balcony around 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to the sheriffs office. Authorities said Lester Carter, 42, died at the scene. A 54-year-old woman died at the hospi-tal, but authorities havent released her name, pend-ing notification of relatives. Records show Coleman has served prison time for crimes including attempted homicide. He was released in July 2009. In addition to the murder charges, Coleman also is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.Young immigrants press Sen.

The century-old American Academy of Arts and Letters said Tuesday that Dylan has become the first rock star to join the ranks of its artists, who include Philip Roth and Jasper Johns. Executive director Virginia Dajani said officials couldnt decide whether Dylan belonged for his words or for his music, so they settled on making him an honorary member.

In fact, the actress says the word lazy isnt in her vocabulary. There are days when I relax but it wont be a full day. It usually means Im gonna clean out my closet. Thats relaxing for me. Or Im gonna cook a full meal for my family and friends, Longoria, who will be 38 on Friday, said in a recent interview. Longoria said she has no problem juggling various projects. I always say theres more time in the day than you think. You waste a lot of time that you dont realize, she said. When I was on Desperate Housewives, I learned two lan-guages. I went back to school for my masters degree, I was married (to San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker) and flying back and forth (between Los Angeles and Texas). You have time. Her passions also include philanthropy and politics. Shes commit-ted to encouraging Latin women to further their education and start entrepreneurial programs. She also founded Evas Heroes, dedicated to teens and young adults with special needs. She just wrapped up filming on Frontera, alongside Ed Harris and Michael Pena, and has endorsement deals with LOreal, Frito-Lay and Sheba.

Summer eld 17950 US Hwy. 441 Tallahassee 1511 Killearn Center Blvd. By JIM TURNER and JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Internet cafs that have popped up around the state, which some say are essentially strip mall gaming parlors, appear about to be finished as an industry in Florida. The president of the state Senate and the speaker of the House both said Wednesday that the cafes should be shut down, and a bill to do that is likely to be heard on the House floor as soon as next week. It would almost assuredly pass there and in the Senate quickly thereafter. Legislative leaders said they wanted the ban hours after state and federal officials announced a massive investigation into the industry, a probe that also led to the resignation of Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who has done consulting work for the organization at the center of that probe. House Speaker Will Weatherford said the House will take up a bill to ban the storefront businesses next week. Senate President Don Gaetz said he would fully support such a ban. Gov. Rick Scott last year expressed support for banning Internet cafes. But he did not take such a direct stance when asked about it during a news conference Wednesday. I think that issues on the table, Scott said. I want to work with the House and the Senate to see if that is something we ought to be doing. Law enforcement officials earlier in the day announced a sweeping probe into an Internet caf chain operating under the umbrella of a supposed veterans char-ity, but also said the investigation could include other companies in the industry. Revelation of the widespread probe also led industry lobbyists to jump ship, leaving the cafes with few friends at the Capitol. Attorney General Pam Bondi, officials from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and several others said at a news conference in Orlando that a three-year investigation revealed an alleged sophisticated racketeering and money laundering scheme involving 49 centers in 23 Florida counties. The organization at the center of the investigation is a veterans charity group called Allied Veterans of the World, which purported to be using money raised to assist veterans. Carroll and her firm 3N and JC, at a minimum, served as a public relations con-sultant to the company in 2009 and 2010 while she was in the state House. The officials declined to discuss any role that Carroll might have played or the potential that other elected officials could still be in the investigative crosshairs, though they implied they may be. That is one of the issues that will be taken up in the second wave of the operation, Seminole County Sheriff Don Eslinger said.Future of Internet cafs in doubtCity Internet Services, an Internet cafe on U.S. 90, about 3 p.m. Wednesday. When a reporter and a photographer approached the group, the agents told them, No comment. Have a nice day. Lake City Internet Services, 2218 W. U.S. 90 Suite 102, apparently shut down last night, but no one from the company could be reached to confirm that. On the door to the business, a sign read, Closed until further notice. The agents who identified themselves as Secret Service, left immediately in several vehicles. Lake City Internet Services was listed in a search warrant issued in Oklahoma as part of the crackdown on Internet cafes run by or connected with Allied Veterans of the World Inc. and Affiliates in 23 Florida counties and five other states, according to a news release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Lake City Internet Services was at one time Allied Veterans Affiliate 56. Secrete Service agents also raided Live Oak Internet Services, a Internet cafe in Live Oak run by Allied Veterans, according to reports. A master affidavit from the Seminole County Sheriffs Office said arrest warrants were issued for the four owners of Live Oak Internet Services and Lake City Internet Services. The owners are not Florida residents but live in South Carolina, according to the affidavit. No Columbia County residents were listed among those being sought. The investigation began in July 2009 and picked up the name Operation Reveal the Deal. Multiple sheriffs offices, FDLE, the Secret Service and the Internal Revenue Service partnered with the Florida Attorney Generals Office and the U.S. Attorneys Office to conduct the operation. Investigators are seizing slot machines and records from Allied Veterans of the World gambling centers across the state, as well as 80 vehicles and vessels, 170 properties and 260 bank accounts estimated in the tens of millions of dollars, the FDLE news release said. CAFE: Local business targeted Continued From Page 1Aday after she was questioned by investi-gators. The public relations firm she co-owned, 3 N&JC, did work for St. Augustine-based Allied Veterans. A Navy veteran who served in the Gulf War, Carroll also appeared in a TV ad in 2011 promoting the organizations work on behalf of vet-erans and their families. Authorities refused to discuss any ties between the 53-year-old Republican and the investigation. Her aides had no comment. Carroll said in a statement Wednesday that neither she nor the public rela-tions firm was targeted in the probe had done anything improper, and she stepped down so that her ties to the organization would not be a distraction for Republican Gov. Rick Scotts administration. The investigation involved 57 arrest warrants and 54 search warrants issued in Florida and five other states: South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Nevada and Pennsylvania. As of mid-afternoon, 49 people had been arrested. Allied Veterans 49 parlors in Florida were raided and shut down. Authorities said they seized about 300 bank accounts containing $64.7 mil-lion, as well as sports cars and other property. Bondi said that when charges are formally filed next week they will include racketeering, conspiracy, money launder-ing and possession of slot machines. It is shameful that Allied Veterans of the World allegedly attempted to use the guise of charitable organization to help veterans in order to lend credibility to this $300 million gambling scheme, she said. A telephone number listed for Allied Veterans was disconnected. Emails to an address on the groups website were not returned. The address Allied listed as its headquarters appeared abandoned, the long, gray cinder-block building bare inside. Gerald Bailey, commissioner of Floridas Department of Law Enforcement, said the arrests are only the first wave of the investigation and the second wave will look at the large sums of money spent on lobbying and donations to political campaigns. He would not give details. Allied Veterans was founded in 1979 and evolved from a charitable organiza-tion that ran bingo games and held bake sales for veterans to a group suspected of widespread illegal gambling around Florida, according to an Internal Revenue Service affidavit. The IRS pronounced the charity a fraud. One of those arrested, Jacksonville lawyer Kelly Mathis, was identified by authorities as the mastermind of the scheme. He allegedly made about $6 mil-lion from the operation. A woman who answered the phone at Mathis law firm said no one was available to talk about his arrest. From 2007 to early 2012, investigators said, they found evidence of nearly $6 million in what appear to be charitable donations by Allied Veterans. That was only about 2 percent of the more than $290 million made from gambling.

OPINION Thursday, March 14, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A H arry Truman is said to have mused as he sat at his Oval Office desk and thought about Dwight Eisenhower, the legend-ary five-star general wo was about to succeed him as president: Poor Ike. It wont be a bit like the army. Hell sit here and hell say, Do this! Do that! And nothing will happen. A half-century later, Trumans words no doubt offer more insight than comfort to yet another commander-in-chief and the four-star army gen-eral he picked to be his Secretary of Veterans Affairs. In announcing his selection of Gen. Eric Shinseki on Pearl Harbor Day, 2008, President-elect Barack Obama basically gave the general just one overriding order to fix what he had repeatedly called the broken VA bureaucracy. To which the general replied with a commit-ment to my fellow veter-ans: I will work each and every day to ensure we are serving you as well as you served us. Surely, neither envisioned that some four years later their efforts would be heralded by an independent investigative article that was published online Monday beneath this headline: VAs ability to quickly provide benefits plummets under Obama. Aaron Glantz, a reporter with the independent Center for Investigative Reporting, obtained a number of internal VA documents that show that not only has the backlog of veterans unprocessed benefits claims soared -but that many veter-ans are waiting longer than the department has publicly acknowledged. While the VA reports its average wait time is 273 days, internal department numbers show that veter-ans filing their first claim wait two months longer than that. And veterans filing for the first time in big cities wait up to twice as long before their ben-efits claims are processed New York City veterans experience delays of 642 days; Los Angeles veter-ans run 619 days. Sometime this month, the VA documents show its backlogs will exceed 1 million veterans claims. And 97 percent of all vet-erans records are still on paper although the VA has spent $537 million in a four-year effort to convert all records to digital. The VA confirms the accuracy of the docu-ments Glantz obtained. But VA spokesman Josh Taylor notes that much of the increased backlog problem is the result of a large increase in the num-ber of claims now being filed and the increased range of benefits the Obama administration has opened up for veterans. But what Obama and Shinsekis VA have failed to act on is the reality of that enormous backlog that simply will not go away unless they change their bureaucracys approach and order it done. For years, the cumbersome appeals process of benefits claims initially rejected by the VA adjudi-cators has produced hor-ror stories that I have writ-ten about in columns and in my 2008 book (Vets Under Siege). And three-fourths of all appeals are found to be in error and are overturned or sent back to be adjudicated again. Extraordinarily wasteful. The best and probably only solution at this point must be some variation of a plan devised in 2007 by Harvard pro-fessor Linda Bilmes. It calls for the VA to process benefits claims the same way the Internal Revenue Service processes taxpay-ers returns closely examine just a random sample, but generally pro-cess them all. At least all of those that are relatively straightforward. Bilmes estimated that 88 percent of the claims could be pro-cessed and paid within 90 days, at a cost of just $500 million. Gulf War veteran Paul Sullivan, a former senior VA project manager who became a leader in veter-ans causes and now works on those issues at the Washington area law firm of Bergmann and Moore, said in an interview, The VAs claim delays and error rate is a crisis and something must be done. Obama and Shinseki can reverse the back-log tide that has all but swamped the VA but only by taking bold action. The Harvard professors unorthodox, unconventional-but-com-mon-sense plan may now be the VAs only way to achieve the goal Obama laid out for Shinseki in 2008: Veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan ... deserve a smooth, error-free, no-fail, benefits-assured transition into our ranks as veter-ans. They clearly arent getting that now. Yet, after fighting our battles half a world away, that is pre-cisely what they deserve from us.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman B aseball teams have been hold-ing spring training in Florida for 125 years, but its economics, not tradition, thats behind Sen. Jack Latvalas plan to spend $5 million in state funds on this tradition. The money would be used to help local governments maintain spring training facilities and protect their leases with Major League Baseball teams. It is a small investment, considering that studies have shown that Floridas Grapefruit League has an annual economic impact of $753 million. It supports more than 9,000 jobs, though many are part-time. A team generates an average $47 million for a host city. The Florida Sports Foundation reports that last year about 1.6 million fans attended Florida spring training games, and 61 percent were out-of-state visitors. Latvalas proposal, it should be emphasized, does not throw money at professional sports teams. Rather, it would provide $5 million annually that would be used as matching grants for local governments that need to renovate spring training facilities. The state Department of Economic Opportunity would review the match to ensure it provides a return on investment for taxpayers. This is a reasonable expense that will help protect what is essentially a major state indus-try and one that is increasingly threatened. As Latvala, a Pinellas County Republican, points out, 15 years ago every MLB team held its spring training in Florida. Now, Arizona hosts half of the majors 30 teams. ... Spring training in Florida isnt just a time when big-leaguers work out the kinks from winter and ready themselves for the regular season. It is a major part of Florida history. And from the standpoint of a fan, spring training is unique. Floridas often-cozy venues allow fans to get close to players and coaches, and the smack of the ball off a bat or into a catchers mitt sounds so much better. Gov. Rick Scott understands spring training creates jobs and has put the funding in his budget. Like the governor, lawmakers should see Latvalas proposal goes to bat for the economy of the state and the communities that are for-tunate enough to host teams.

Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution co-authored with Clint Bolick, caused a hubbub when reviewers found Bush had reversed his previous position on a path to citizenship for undocumented immi-grants. Bush used to be for it and now is not. Still, as Manuel Roig-Franzia points out in a Washington Post book review, Bush argues convinc-ingly for more, not fewer, migrants entering the country. Also, Roig-Franzia finds Bushs hardening position on citizenship odd at a time when Republicans are desperate to woo Hispanics. Among the presumed 11 million undocumented people in the United States, if those 18 and older were to gain citizenship and voting eligibil-ity, they could spell the end of the Republican Partys competitiveness in a national election -if Republicans are not doing it all by themselves already. On this matter, President Barack Obama already seems to have compromised. Leaked information about the type of program he favors sug-gests current undocumented people would have to wait at least eight years to become eligible for citizen-ship. It actually means taxation without representation and a form of voter suppression. Bushs six-point strategy includes a demand-based immigration policy that encourages future immi-grants to come fill a workforce role here. But there is no U.S. demand for refugees or migrants fleeing cli-mate change or economic downturns and calamity. What he means is that we want an elitist policy of cherry-picking well-educated foreign sci-entists, engineers and doctors and other professionals for entry. This outlook suggests we may as well put up a for sale sign on the Statue of Liberty and declare an end to our romantic, noncommercial past as a beacon to the world, one that welcomed your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. What is missing most from Bushs book is a simple acceptance of facts. One of them is how migration is con-fused with immigration. As pointed out in a 2012 Pew Hispanic Center report, migration is cyclical and has been falling since 2007. A Financial Times analysis shows it fell from 770,000 a year in the late 1990s to 140,000 in 2010. Between 2005 and 2010, more people went from the U.S. to Mexico than came to the U.S. from Mexico, according to the Financial Times. A simple measure would open discussions among Canada, the United States and Mexico, possibly through the NAFTA trade agreement, for a North American status among residents of this continent. In North America, population movement isnt about immigration. It concerns migration. The undocumented status for some 60 to 65 percent of migrants already in this country would become irrelevant. They and their children already meet demand objectives, as outlined in Bushs book.

Felix Jain DeninaFelix Jain Denina was born No-vember 20, 1932 in Nabua, Ca-marines Sur, in the Bicol region of the Philippines, the young-est son among 14 siblings. He graduated high school in Nabua then moved to Manila to attend college and law school at the Lyceum of the Philippines. He joined the US Navy in 1960. One day on leave, he accom-panied his sister, Juana, to a Mu Sigma Mu sorority fete, and met her best friend, Dolly Naguiat Santos, who would become his lifetime partner. They married on June 28, 1964. 7KHLUUVWGXW\VWDWLRQWRJHWKHUwas at Norfolk, Virginia. Felix served a tour in Viet Nam, and rose to the rank of Chief Legal-man (LNC). Stations included Subic Bay (Philippines), Great Lakes, Illinois; Balboa (San Diego), CA; Long Beach, CA; Port Hueneme, CA; and Naples, Italy. Having put 20 years in the Navy, he retired to Oxnard, California where he memorably ran for City Council in 1982. He and Dolly moved to Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippnes to raise their family close to Dollys hometown of Porac. After earning an MPA, Felix went on to teach Political Science at the Angeles University Foundation. He ran a popular restaurant, Denmart, and is affectionally known sim-ply as Dad to hundreds of med students and undergraduates. In 1993, he and Dolly settled in Lake City, Florida, which quickly became home. An active member of the Epiphany Catho-lic Church, he earned a fourth de-gree in the Knights of Columbus. He owned rental properties and found running the Green Tree 9LOODJHIXOOOLQJRQPDQ\OHYHOVHere too, he made lifelong friends. Sought out for his wit, warmth, and legal advice, he nev-er met a stranger. His trademark smile and wave, hearty Hello!, UPKDQGVKDNHDQGUHDG\ODXJKgraced many a gathering. His now standard reply to the query how are you? in Tagalog was, Ma-beauty pa rin, a play on the equivalent of Still good. Wherever theyve lived, Felix and Dolly promoted culture, her-itage, traditions, founding the Bi-col Club of Ventura County (Ca-lif) during the early 70s and the Filipino American Cultural Soci-ety of Lake City, FL in the 90s. He has been patriarch to a large, extended, involved, close fam-ily (Aaaaaamolan!). His kind congenial manner and steadfast presence is missed already by his sister, cousins, nieces and neph-ews (some older than him) and their kids. He always espoused unity, respect, and love of fam-ily. He was at times very strict but endeared himself with his di-rectness and jokes, and so much affection. Memorably, though quite ill and just released from the hospital on supplemental oxygen, he insisted on making it WRWKH:HVW%ORRPHOG0LFKL gan 2012 Denina Reunion -by car, because he was forbidden to \7KHFDGHQFHDQGQDUUDWLYHdelivered in his commanding voice will not be soon forgotten. But it isnt only the family into which he was born that holds him in such esteem. When he married Dolly Naguiat Santos, he was enfolded into a family as loving and supportive as his own, and they mourn their Papa Nono too. He is survived by his beloved wife of nearly 50 years, Dolly, their three children: Judi, Nina, and Anthony, four grandchil-dren: Cheryll Joy, John, Sam and Mark Anthony, his dear sister Nanie and her husband Bernie and a large supportive, lov-ing, robust circle of family and friends worldwide that will not forget his lessons or his exam-ple or the beauty of his person.

OBITUARIES RODEO: Events start Friday Continued From Page 1Aas they attempt to win a championship on the pro-fessional rodeo circuit. Events will include: tiedown roping, team roping, bull riding, steer wrestling, bareback riding, barrel rac-ing and saddle bronc riding. The rodeo is organized by Columbia County Resources, a nonprofit organization, governed by an eight-member board of directors. It oversees the 86-acre Columbia County Fairgrounds complex and the rodeo arena. The event also has an open rodeo division which allows local cowboys and cowgirls opportunities to compete against profes-sionals in selected events. Steve Briscoe, 2013 rodeo chairman, said more than 250 people have registered to compete in this years rodeo, which has a total prize package of $8,750. Weve got a great turnout, he said. Briscoe said competitors are battling for points in the 2013 National Finals Rodeo which will take place in December in Las Vegas. EXERCISE: Local responders prepare for attack Continued From Page 1ASchool District administrators, teachers and representatives, Lake City Fire Department, Lifeguard Ambulance Service, Century Ambulance Service and Columbia County Emergency Management Department participated. The purpose of the exercise was to have local public safety agencies go through a scenario of an active shooter to operate in a coordinated effort to mitigate a threat or a mass casualty incident such as a school shooting, said Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer. The Columbia County school system and local law enforcement have plans in place for a scenario like this, and this allows us to implement these plans in a real life scenario, which in terms allows us to tweak these procedures to make sure were handling them in the best way possible. Seifert said the training went well.All the participants acted professionally and relied on their train-ing, he said. The community of Columbia County should be confident that public safety entities are ready to face situations such as these. They are prepared and well trained professionals. The training was conducted by The Management Experts, and featured a series of emergency scenarios where authorities had to use different tactics and techniques to reduce the danger. Following each session, briefings were held where tactics and techniques were dis-cussed. School personnel also held a briefing session to discuss their plans. Seifert said the exercise was enhanced because first responders were able to use the school. When we are doing an active school shooter we want it to be as real as possible, he said. We cant do that at a vacant building. Our deputies are going through this in real time with simulated weapons and simulated munitions ...

Deputy Sheriff Randy Harrison arrested Charles Peek, 31, at 11:50 p.m. charges of possession of drug par aphernelia, possession of metham phetamine and posses sion of K-2, a synthetic marijuana, according to a Sherriffs Office report. Harrison originally stopped Peek for having an inoperable head light on his vehicle at the intersection of U.S. Highway 47 and Raven Lane. But, the report said, Peeks hand shook as he handed his drivers license to Harrison. During a pat-down search, Harrison felt a plastic bag in the suspects right pocket. Speculating the bag con tained marijuana, Harrison asked Peek if he had any ille gal drugs in his right pocket, the report said. After a moments hesita tion, Peek said yes. Harrison then handcuffed Peek and removed the con tents from his pocket. He found a smoking pipe with unknown residue, two pack ages of K-2 and a cigarette pack that contained two small bags, the report said. Field-testing confirmed the contents of one bag to be crystal meth. Peek admitted that he pur chased the K-2 for personal use, but denied knowledge of the crystal meth. Peek was taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility to await further action on the charges. From staff reports Lake City residents found driving drunk on St. Pattys Day may end up paying a pot o gold to cover fines and prosecution expenses. As the holiday approaches, Police Chief Argatha Gilmore recommends motorists plan ahead by arranging a safe ride home and not get behind the wheel drunk, a police department news release says. St. Patricks Day falls on Sunday, and residents can expect police to be extra alert for drunk drivers as a part of the departments Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. Drunk driving is dangerous, deadly and against the law and it will not be tolerated in Lake City this St. Patricks Day, Gilmore said in the release. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org Two Lake City women were arrested after a hitand-run traffic accident Tuesday at the intersection of Duvall and Miller streets, city police said. Jennie Raye Jarrell, 33, was charged with driving knowingly with a suspended license, and Ashley Banks, 29, was charged with pos session of a controlled sub stance, according to a police report. Officers responded to a traffic crash that resulted in minor injuries about 4:37 p.m. People gathered on the sidewalk alerted the responding officers to a 1995 green Honda moving away down Miller Street, saying it was responsible for the crash, the report said. Another officer caught the vehicle at the intersec tion of Miller and Nassau streets. The driver, Jarrell, told police she did not have a valid drivers license, and a warrants check proved that her license had seven sus pensions, the report said. Officer Rebecca Miles said she observed the pas senger, Banks, fidgeting in her seat. It appeared to Miles that Banks was trying to hide something under the seat. A warrants check revealed Banks was on probation for a narcotics violation, and Miles asked Banks to step out of the vehicle. Jarrell granted the offi cers permission to search her vehicle, where they dis covered a plastic prescrip tion bottle containing a red straw with residue and a small, blue pill, the report said. Banks denied the con tents belonged to her, but said her fingerprints would be on the bottle because she hid it under the seat. According to the report, when asked why she hid the bottle, Banks said, I hid it because I didnt want to get arrested for it and lose custody of my child. Jarrell denied ownership of the bottle and its con tents, the report said. She told the officers she heard Banks say she did not want to go to jail, but did not notice the woman hide any thing under the seat. Miles confirmed the pill was Valium by call ing Walgreens Pharmacy. Before police left the scene, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Patrick Miles told the offi cers that he had witnessed Jarrell cause the accident then flee down Miller Street. Jarrell and Banks were taken to Columbia County Detention Facility to await action on their charges, the police report said.

G. W. HUNTER, INC. Spring fling By BRANDON FINLEY firstname.lastname@example.org Its been almost three years since Columbia and Fort White high schools have met on the football field, but the Tigers and Indians are set to play again on May 17. Columbia was originally set to take on Baker County High, but the Wildcats backed out of the game leaving the Tigers with an open spot for the spring game. They backed out and wouldnt accept phone calls, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. We found out that they had scheduled First Coast. It opened the door for the Tigers to take on county foe Fort White, which was originally scheduled to take on Hamilton County. For coach Allen, the matchup made obvious sense. Our graduation is set for May 24, so that eliminated a lot of teams that we could play, Allen said. With trav el and everything and the budget crisis, scheduling a school in the county made sense for both teams. The game also could have taken place on May 31, but Fort Whites gradu ation is set for that day. Allen said that playing the game in the middle of the week didnt make sense for anyone involved so the game was scheduled for 7 p.m. on May 17 at Fort White, a week prior to graduation. But scheduling isnt the only benefit for the two schools. The gate is expect ed to be a kickstarter to the 2013 season for both schools. For me, were looking at it as the standpoint of a fundraiser for both pro grams, no matter which team wins, Allen said. It should put us both in the green financially, because we expect a good gate no matter if it would have been at our place or theirs. Just because the game is at Fort White, Allen doesnt necessarily look at it as a road contest. Its basically a home game for both teams, Allen said. Its not out of town. Were not talking about trav elling out of the county. Allen also said hes not looking at it as a grudge match. To me, theyre an incounty opponent, Allen said. I dont want to say rival. Allen said he hasnt had the opportunity to look at a lot of what Fort White does on film yet, but that he respects the program as a whole. I havent had the oppor tunity to watch them, but I know theyre going to be coached well, Allen said. We dont want this to be a heated rivalry. Its a good opportunity for both teams to start the season on a good note financially. The two teams most recently met in 2010 in the annual kickoff classic con test. It was part of a classic that took place on back-toback years between the two teams. In 2009, Fort White defeated the Tigers 13-12 in Fort White. Columbia led 12-0 with under 10 minutes remaining in the contest, but Fort White mounted a comeback. Montre Cray scored the go-ahead touch down with 45 seconds remaining in the game. Columbia got revenge on their home field during the 2010 contest behind a stellar performance from Timmy Jernigan. Despite two scores from Columbia transfer Josh Faulkner for the Indians, it was the Tigers who domi nated the game to the tune of 23-13. Jernigan, usually known for his defensive perfor mances in high school, also lined up at running back during the contest. He set the tone early with 45 yards on the opening drive and even scored a touchdown to help the Tigers earn a win. Fort White will host Columbia on May 17. FILE ART Columbia Highs Nigel Atkinson is taken down by Fort White Highs Xavier Wyche in the 2010 kickoff classic played in Lake City. Columbia and Fort White will play each other this year in the kickoff classic.

All people really remember is his last game: a stink-er against Louisville in the Sugar Bowl. So as Driskel and the Gators begin spring prac-tice Wednesday, the focus is squarely on improv-ing quarterback play and developing a more efficient offense. Florida ranked 103rd in total offense last season, the worst showing for any team that made a Bowl Championship Series game. Weve got to be a better throwing team and that starts with him, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Tuesday. A lot of it is based around understand-ing the protections a lot bet-ter and when he has to get rid of the ball and where he has to see his reads. Just seeing the field bet-ter as a quarterback and seeing what the coverages are doing and trying to get the balls to the guys and schemes defensively how theyre trying to attack him and confuse him. Driskel completed 63.7 percent of his passes for 1,646 yards last season. He threw 12 touchdown passes and five interceptions. He also ran for 413 yards and four scores. He threw game-changing picks in a 33-23 loss to the Cardinals in New Orleans a performance that could motivate him through the offseason. And since the Gators probably need more offense to offset a rebuilt defense, Driskels progress seems to be the biggest thing prevent-ing coach Will Muschamps team from being a legiti-mate contender in the SEC. Again, I think the game continues to slow down for you, Muschamp said. First year as a full-time starter. First year in a scheme and system, the terminology, and not youre not splitting reps 50-50, so hes going to get all the turns and all the reps with the same people, which I think obviously will help us in some throwing game issues. It should help that Driskel will get the majority of rep-etitions with the first-team offense in spring practice. Backup Jacoby Brissett, who competed for the start-ing job last year, transferred to North Carolina State in January. So Driskel has no competition for the job. Jeff wants to go back and improve everything, Muschamp said. But I think you take things in seg-ments. I need to improve here, I need to improve there. I think within say-ing that, Year 2 in the sys-tem the game slows down a little bit. A better under-standing of the protection, a better understanding of where the ball needs to go, where youre protected and where youre not protected. I think those are the things as much as anything its going to help him to under-stand that. All those things, thats easy to talk about, but when its happening in front of 90,000 people against some of the people we play against, its a fast, fast game. It could help that Driskel will have better protection and more talent at receiver. The Gators added transfers Max Garcia (Maryland) and Tyler Moore (Nebraska) on the offensive line and signed five receivers to compete for playing time as fresh-men. The receivers include Demarcus Robinson, who is on campus for the spring. Florida also moved speedy cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy to receiver for the first seven days of practice. More than anything, though, it should help that Driskel has no reason to look over his shoulder. I think itll benefit him a ton, Pease said.
DEAR ABBY: I need help and dont know where to turn. I am divorced and have a 37-year-old son, Teddy, who has never married and has no chil-dren. He lives on his own except when hes in trou-ble or has nowhere else to go. Then he moves back in with me. The problem is my son is a liar and has been ever since he was a teenager. He even lies when telling the truth would be bet-ter. I punished him every way I knew how when he was growing up. Nothing worked. Teddy has been in trouble with the law in the past and is now in trouble again. Of course, he says hes innocent. I got him out on bond and offered to get him help. I also told him there would be no more money from me, and I no longer want to hear his lies. Another problem: Teddy is extremely good-looking and women swoon over him. He ends up using them and then dumping them, and then they call me. I dont know why he is the way he is. Is there treatment for people who cant tell the truth? Please tell me what to do. I love my son and it breaks my heart to see him do these bad things. -BROKENHEARTED MOTHER IN TEXAS DEAR BROKENHEARTED: As much as you love Teddy, its time to accept that you cant fix whats wrong with him; only he can do that. It wont happen until he finally has to accept the consequences of his bad behavior. Taking him in and bailing him out is not the answer. It also helps no one when you have long conversations with the women who call you, so protect yourself by cutting them short. Considering the kind of man your son is, thank your lucky stars that he has no children -yet. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My father recently moved to an apartment with no stor-age and I was left with 10 large boxes of memora-bilia. Going through these boxes brought many tears of remembrance and new insights into the lives of my parents and grandpar-ents. My problem now is what to do with these things; I can scan photos and let-ters, but what about Great-Grandmas wedding dress (stained and moth-eaten), Mothers christening gown (too frail to use again) and the dear soft curl of hair from my uncle who died in childhood? I dont have much storage room, and Im not certain my children would even care about these things. Yet it doesnt seem right to throw them in the garbage. I wonder what other people do with treasured items that have no value beyond senti-ment. -SOFT HEART/PRACTICAL HEAD IN TACOMA DEAR SOFT HEART: Do not automatically assume that your children would have no interest in the contents of those 10 boxes. ASK them. However, if they say no, then contact the state historical society or a local theater troupe and inquire if they would have any interest. You may be pleasantly surprised to find some of the items would be welcomed. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your changing atti-tude will confuse some and excite others. Dont discuss your plans in detail until you have them fully formulated in your mind. The way you present what you want to pursue will make a difference to the outcome. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont hold back if you think you have a solution to an existing problem. Dive into the situation with optimism and hope that you can change whatever needs reform. You will convince others to pitch in and help you reach your goals. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont be fooled by someone complaining and asking for your help. Charity begins at home and you must put you and your family first. Offer suggestions and get back to making the changes required to improve your life. Revisit an offer and negotiate. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Check out different lifestyles, cultures and geographical locations that can offer you greater oppor-tunities. You may not like change, but its always worth checking out. Opportunity is available, but you may have to make a change to take advantage. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Share your insight, thoughts and ideas. Plan to visit a place or person that will inspire you to make personal, educational or professional changes that will improve your life. A favor or opportunity will come from an old col-league or friend. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Discussions will lead to solutions. Your approach to handling people and problems will be success-ful. A partnership will help you get ahead. Love and romance are highlighted, and plans for the future will enhance your relation-ship. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont be fooled by someone promoting a new lifestyle, gadget or per-sonal product that can pre-form miracles. Trust your own judgment and refrain from spending money. A change in your current relationship will lead to new beginnings. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Follow your gut feeling when it comes to affairs that will affect your domestic life or surround-ings. Improvements can be made that will enhance your relationship with someone dear to your heart. Love is on the rise. +++ SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21): Keep your thoughts a secret. Spend time at home doing things that will improve your life or bring you added comfort. Avoid anyone trying to push you into something you dont want to do. Deception is appar-ent. Physical and financial protection is required. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Avoid a confronta-tion with a friend, relative or neighbor. Stick to business and focus on elaborating and developing your ideas and plans for the future. A better position is within reach. Present and promote what you have to offer. ++ AQUARIUS (Jab. 20Feb. 18): Re-establish con-nections with people you have shared good times with in the past. Using your skills to improve your home life and surround-ings will bring you closer to starting up a prosperous venture that allows you to work from home. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let your intuition guide you when it comes to legal, financial or medi-cal matters. Look over contracts and add what you require to make it worth your while. Love and romance are on the rise, and a commitment or promise can be made. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Florida trying to regain fire, intensity By MARK LONG Associated Press GAINESVILLE Florida coach Billy Donovan has noticed something missing from his team the last three weeks. Ball security? Sure. Rebounding? Absolutely. Clutch shots in close games? Well, that, too. Those tangible mis cues are correctable, but Donovan says hes more concerned about one intan gible missing element. Im more looking at the whole body of work with the way were playing right now and I dont like our fire, I dont like our intensity, Donovan said this week. The coach doesnt know how the 13th-ranked Gators will regain it. It could be a fatal flaw or the thing that gets Florida back on track as it heads into the Southeastern Conference tournament. The top-seeded Gators (24-6, 14-4 SEC) have lost three of their last six games all by six points or less. Florida was outrebound ed in losses at Missouri, Tennessee and Kentucky, had costly turnovers late and missed shots down the stretch that could have changed the outcome. Guards Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and Pat Young have received the brunt of the blame. Boynton missed two 3pointers in the final min ute against the Tigers and missed a jumper with 15 seconds to play against the Wildcats. Rosario turned the ball over at crucial times against Mizzou and Kentucky. And Young was hardly a factor in all three games. He had two points and three rebounds against the Tigers, 15 points and five boards against the Volunteers, and 10 points and two rebounds against the Wildcats. All of it is concerning for Donovan heading into the postseason. But all of it pales in com parison to his teams recent energy and effort. He point ed to the way the Gators started both halves against Kentucky and to a lacklus ter performance against Alabama, a game in which first place in the league was on the line. Im trying to help our team become great, Donovan said. Im not inter ested in just us kind of going through the motions.
