By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org State law governing land lords and tenants may soon be simplified and all com ponents of the law brought together in one statute, said a local state rep resentative who moved the bill in the state House of Representatives. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, proposed House Bill 77. She said the bill ben efits both landlords and ten ants. House Bill 77 passed 78-38 on Wednesday. Porter said the laws gov erning landlords and tenants are spread across multiple statutes and are difficult to understand. House Bill 77 would change that. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter Florida now requires public records to be cleared of any per sonal information, such as Social Security numbers, before they are released, but Columbia County Clerk of Circuit Court still has delays processing requests more than a year after the new law took affect. It isnt alone. The Associated Press investi gated all of the states 67 counties and their respective courts to see whether each agency is comply ing with the law and how much of a delay doing so is causing in the release of information. The project, under the direction of the Florida Society of News Editors, was done in conjunction with this years Sunshine Week, an annual initiative to promote greater trans parency in government. Since Florida enacted the new law, records clerks must search every public document for person al information, such as credit card and bank account numbers, names of minors and Social Security num bers.

Gaming figures donated $1M CURT ANDERSON and GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE The key players behind a purported veter ans charity accused of setting up illegal gambling rooms pumped more than $1 million into the cam paign accounts of politicians who had the power to regulate or put them out of business. As the untaxed, barely regulated industry mushroomed into a bil lion-dollar industry, money went to the campaigns of governors in Florida and North Carolina as well as dozens of state legislators, and state political parties. They certainly were involved in the process theres no doubt about that, said Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford, who himself received a $500 check from one of the companies involved. An Associated Press review of contributions showed more than $1 million went into Florida cam paign accounts from 2009-2012 and more than $150,000 in North Carolina. Allied Veterans of the World ran nearly 50 Internet parlors in Florida with computerized slot machine-style games and gave about $6 million to veterans out of nearly $300 million in profits. Investigators said much of the money went to charity leaders, who spent much of it on boats, beachfront condos and vehicles House passes Porter bill SUNSHINE WEEK Slowed release GAMING continued on 3A CARC continued on 3A RECORDS continued on 3A From staff reports A Lake City man faces felony sex charges for acts allegedly committed against two middle school children, according to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office.

AROUND FLORIDA Man found guilty in fatal robbery TAMPA A man accused of killing two Tampa Police officers has been convicted in another, unrelated fatal shooting. A jury found 27-yearold Dontae Morris guilty Wednesday of first-degree murder and attempted rob-bery. He faces a manda-tory life sentence. Authorities say Morris killed 42-year-old Rodney Jones outside the Cotton Club in West Tampa on May 31, 2010. Officials say that one month after that incident, Morris shot and killed officers Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis. Prosecutors are seeking a death sentence in that case. Morris also faces separate murder trials in the killings of Harold Wright and Derek Anderson. The jurors in the current trial were selected from Orlando because too many potential jurors in Tampa were aware that Morris is also awaiting trial in the four other slayings.Man drunk-dials 911, lands in jail ST. PETERSBURG A 51-year-old Florida man got a trip to jail for drunk-dialing 911. Pinellas County deputies didnt find an emer-gency when they arrived at Gary Alan Pockrandts home near St. Petersburg on Wednesday morning. Pockrandt had called 911 twice, telling dispatchers his cell phone wasnt work-ing. Authorities werent amused when Pockrandt called 911 again three hours later and told the dispatcher that his drug dealer was mad at him. The Tampa Bay Times reports Pockrandt was cooperative the first time deputies came to his house. But he was com-bative when they arrived after the third 911 call. An arrest report noted he was intoxicated. Pockrandt is being held in jail on $150 bail. Hes charged with misuse of the 911 system.Officer kills man in patrol car MIAMI Authorities say a Miami-Dade police officer fatally shot a man who tried to run officers over with their patrol car. The officers were responding to a call Tuesday night that a suspi-cious person was looking inside parked vehicles. When the officers con-fronted 44-year-old Juan Luis Rodriguez, he was not able to give a plausible rea-son for why he was look-ing inside the cars. The Miami Herald reports that the offi-cers tried to handcuff Rodriguez, but he broke away and got into their police cruiser. Police say Rodriguez tried to run the officers over, and one offi-cer shot and killed him. Rodriguez already had an open probation warrant from 2008 for aggra-vated assault with a deadly weapon. Man calls 911 after setting fire NEW SMYRNA BEACH Authorities say a con-victed arsonist called 911 to report his neighbors house was on fire and then sat in his yard, drinking beer as fire consumed the house. The Volusia County Sheriffs Office received a 911 call about the fire in the New Smyrna Beach house early Wednesday. Sheriffs spokesman Brandon Haught said James Bates told the dis-patcher the flames are going silly now. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports an investigation by the sheriffs office, the State Fire Marshals Office and bloodhounds led to Bates, who was convicted in a series of arsons in 2012. Haught says Bates eventually admitted to breaking into the home and setting fire to a stack of papers in the kitchen. He faces first-degree arson and violation of pro-bation charges. Buble not worried about album sales LOS ANGELES M ichael Buble has sold millions of albums, but as he readies the release of his newest project, hes less concerned with his future sales, thanks to his wifes pregnancy. Im nervous and excited, and truly I think its given me great perspective, the singer said at the music video shoot for his new single, Its a Beautiful Day. I used to worry about how the single would do and how the record would sell. And the truth is, I love this record. Im so proud of it. But, at the end of the day, if it sells 10 mil-lion or 10 copies, Ive got bigger fish to fry, he continued. Ive got a wife and a kid I love very much. Buble married Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato in 2011. They announced in January theyre expecting their first child, and his publicist confirmed Thursday the couple are expecting a son. Most of Bubles albums have reached multiplatinum status, and his last three releases have hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, including the triple platinum Christmas, the second best-selling album of 2011 behind Adeles 21. His new album, To Be Loved, will be released April 23. It finds the Grammy winner covering songs by the Bee Gees, Dean Martin and Elvis Presley, as well as collaborating with Reese Witherspoon. It also fea-tures four original songs, including a tribute to his wife called Close Your Eyes. Its a Beautiful Day is about a man who is happy because his fail-ing romantic relationship has finally ended. So who inspired the song? Harry Styles, the 37-year-old Buble replied jokingly, referring to the One Direction band member who dated Taylor Swift. Ed Asner of Lou Grant released from hospital LOS ANGELES Ed Asners publicist says the 83-year-old actor is out of a Chicago-area hospital after being diagnosed with exhaustion. Publicist Charles Sherman says Asner was released Thursday and plans to fly home to Los Angeles. He likely will postpone some performances of his touring one-man stage show. On Tuesday night, Asner was taken off the stage in Gary, Ind., and went by ambulance to the unidenti-fied hospital. Asner just completed filming several episodes of the TV series The Glades in Florida. Hes been on a national tour portraying President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the play FDR for more than three years. Asner is best known for his roles in TVs The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spinoff, Lou Grant.Current TV, Olbermann settle their legal dispute NEW YORK Keith Olbermann and Current TV say theyve settled their dispute nearly a year after Olbermann was fired by the network and responded with a $50 million lawsuit. Both parties say in a Wednesday state-ment that the terms of the settlement are confidential. Olbermann was fired last March as a host and executive at the left-leaning cable talk network.

such as Maseratis, Ferraris and Porsches. The operations were shut down this week and nearly 60 people were arrested. Jennifer Carroll, Floridas Republican lieutenant gov ernor, abruptly resigned after being questioned by investigators. Carroll did consulting work for Allied Veterans while she was a state legislator. She was not charged with any wrongdoing. Undercover law enforce ment agents fanned out in the beginning of 2012 to conduct investigations of 44 Allied Veterans locations, according to an Internal Revenue Service affidavit filed in federal court. The agents labeled the parlors Internet casinos, saying employees urged them to pay more to gamble to win the biggest prizes. According to the IRS, that violates a Florida law say ing any sweepstakes game couldnt have different lev els of prizes for those who made donations and those who did not. One undercover agent who took the employ ees advice to bet higher amounts won more than $630 in a single spin in December 2011 at an Allied Veterans site in Lake City. A review of Florida con tribution records showed several people arrested donated to state politicians, as did the Oklahoma-based software company that worked with Allied. In addi tion, many of the more than 100 companies linked to the Jacksonville attorney who has been accused of mas terminding the racketeer ing scheme also made con tributions. In Florida, a large chunk went to the two political parties: The Republican Party of Florida received nearly $300,000, while the Florida Democratic Party has received in excess of $100,000. Money was also given to many top Republican poli ticians as well as legisla tors who have been deeply involved with the future of gaming in the state. LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 15 & 16, 2013 3A 3A CARC: Bowl-a-thon set Continued From Page 1A Right now we have 21 teams, said Svetlana Zhavoronkova, CARC executive director. We still registering teams and also people can go to the bowl ing alley and register their team and pay on the day of the event. The bowling alley has 16 lanes, and we have 10 teams for one session and 11 teams for the other session, so were open for people to come in. Proceeds raised during the event go toward ser vices provided by CARC. CARC-Advocates for Citizens with Disabilities is a private, nonprofit organi zation that provides servic es for citizens with physical and mental disabilities. The organization serves 40 cli ents and each requires dif ferent types of services. The two major services provided by CARC which use the bowl-a-thon pro ceeds are adult day train ing and the organizations group home. Those are our two main allocations where we spend all of our contribu tions from the community, Zhavoronkova said, noting nine residents live in the group home. The organiza tion also has clients who use employment support services and in-home sup port services. Zhavoronkova said sev eral local businesses have contributed door prizes for the fundraiser, includ ing some companies that are making their first con tributions to the event as sponsors. We really appreciate the donations from local busi nesses because they give the contributions no matter how they suffer, she said. In this economy every sin gle company in our town suffers too, but they still find something they can contribute to us, and thats very important. CARC has experienced budget cuts from the state government in the past few years and the slow econo my has taken a toll on its services and funding. We had an increase in the minimum wage of 45 percent since 2005 and a decrease in our rate of fund ing for services of about 40 percent since 2005, and we have to make up the differ ence, Zhavoronkova said, noting the fundraiser helps with that. Every fundraiser for us is special, she said. Everything we do is spe cial. The 21 teams we have is more than we had last year. This is the biggest fundraiser we have. We want everybody to come and have fun. Its a really fun time. PORTER: Bill passes Continued From Page 1A (Owners) that might only have one or two rent als and also tenants that dont have a lot of access to legal council will be able to go to one place and know exactly what their rights and responsibilities are, Porter said. Porter said State Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, proposed the bill in the Senate this year, and had fought for the bill in 2012. The bill died before it came to a vote in the Senate last year. This was originally her bill last year, Porter said. ... I do know it was mov ing through (the Senate) this year. Porter said the process of a bill coming to the floor takes time, and sometimes is complicated. The bill has to be drafted, and put into legalese. Then, The bill must pass through committees before finally making it to the floor. The bill must be read three times and all the rep resentatives are given the chance to ask questions. Porter said she must have done a good job explain ing the bill, because on the third reading there was no debate. We dont want it to be too easy (for a bill to become law), Porter said. We have enough of them as it is. GAMING: Politicians, parties received donations Continued From Page 1A RECORDS: Law slows fulfilling requests Continued From Page 1A records that are available to the pub lic under Floridas public records laws. Prior to Jan. 1, 2012, record cus todians were not required to redact any personal information in court cases. Look at it this way, if it were your personal information, you wouldnt want it handed out over the counter, said the Columbia County Clerk of Court P. Dewitt Cason. Since last year, every file, even those already automatically redact ed by computer software, has to be checked for personal information, said Pat Perry, chief deputy of Columbia County Clerk of Circuit Court. Delays in getting the court records can prevent information about cases from being released in a timely man ner. This is important not only to the media, but to individuals and businesses that need quick access to cases they wish to learn about. In order to test the effect of the new requirement, representatives from 31 news organizations requested to view the hard copies of two civil cases and two criminal cases in all 67 coun ties. The criminal cases were gener ally a week-old and six-months old, as were the civil cases. Requests for 268 records were made. According to the investigation, there was a delay in retrieving the records in just over half of the counties whether it was because personal information needed to be redacted, because the file wasnt yet in the clerks office or because the file couldnt be found. Although Floridas public records laws dont spell out how long it should take to retrieve a record, the courts have ruled that a record should be produced in no more time than it takes to retrieve the record and review and redact exempt infor mation, said attorney Jon Kaney, who has chaired the Florida Bars media law committee. However, Perry said the law has caused delays in filling public records requests, mainly because the Columbia County Clerk of Circuit Court office is understaffed. Each court department civil cases, small claims, etc. is staffed by only one person, who is responsible for all the work. Thats what causes the delay, she said. We dont have the staff mem bers to devote only to redacting. Not all files are on record at the local Circuit Court, some have to be ordered from its storage facility. Regardless of whether the record is imaged on the electronic software or retrieved as a hard copy from stor age, each page must be examined for personal information. Perry said redacting can take between 15 minutes to several days depending on the length of the docu ment. Columbia County records moved to electronic imaging approximately three years ago. Since then, public records are scanned daily. Even with electronic files, there is still a certain amount of manpower required to search for and redact the document. Cason said the custodians must double-check the work of the automated redacting system. Despite the redaction requirement, Social Security numbers were left in the files retrieved by the Associated Press in Calhoun, Columbia, Gilchrist, Hardee and Hernado counties. As long as you have a human ele ment people involved theres always a small possibility that an error will occur, Cason said. But were doing our best to make sure that it doesnt happen again. The Associated Press contributed to this report. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Pat Perry, Columbia County chief deputy clerk of the circuit court and civil supervi sor, looks through documents in the file room Thursday. The room, which houses dozens of file cabinets, has a multitude of domestic relations, traffic, misdemeanor, juvenile, small claims, circuit and civil court documents dating back to 2009.

City man critical after cycle crash By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter. com A Lake City Man was transported by helicopter to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville after a Wednesday motor cycle accident. Gabriel Kimble, 42, was listed in critical condition at the hospital after he lost control of the 2005 Kawasaki Ninja as he was driving on Lake Jeffery Road at about 6:36 p.m, the Florida Highway Patrol incident report says. As he approached his driveway, Kimble braked, but the bike tipped side ways. The bike and its rider continued to slide west down Lake Jeffery Road, the report said. Kimble came to a stop on the shoulder of the eastbound lane. Family members moved him from the road. Kimble was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, the report said.

This week the Florida Senate took final steps toward passage of SB 50, the long-awaited right-to-speak bill. The measure, along with its House companion, HB 23, guarantees the one thing Floridas Sunshine Law doesnt: The right to be heard at public meet-ings. The right to listen quietly we already have. But some places in Florida, with help from the courts, have suppressed the rights of citizens to speak at public gatherings of elected or appointed offi-cials. Sen. Joe Negron, R-Palm City, hopes to change that on his third try. Negron filed near-identical bills in two previous legislative sessions but fell short both times. This time around hes well on his way. Senate Bill 50 cleared its final committee hurdle Tuesday and could come to a vote in the full Senate early next week. Sunshine Week ends Saturday, but eventual passage of the right-to-speak bill would be a fine, if belated, way to celebrate.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.orgThere is nothing better for a bad federal budget than a good econo-my, and the recovering U.S. econo-my is beginning to work its magic on the federal deficit, which has been in the $1 trillion-plus range the last four years. The Associated Press says, For once, the governments financial shape is actually improving and will get better still over the next few years as the U.S. economy continues to pull itself slowly out of the worst recession since the 1930s. That for once is a little unfair because from 1993 to 1997 the fed-eral deficit, the excess of spending over revenues, fell by more than $230 billion to around $21 billion -itself the lowest in over 20 years -before going into the black for the first time in nearly 30 years. That happy state of affairs lasted four years, until 2002, and the first round of the George W. Bush tax cuts. The federal budget numbers look so impressive, so orderly, so definitive in the annual White House budget office but its an open secret in Washington that these numbers are just informed guesses often based on improbable assump-tions. For example, the number crunchers are required to assume that Congress will actually do what it says it will. The Bush White House mistakenly believed it was dealing with a 10-year surplus of more than $5 trillion. Then came a second round of tax cuts. The Bush mantra was were going to put some extra money in your pocket, neglecting to mention that the money would have to be borrowed. Then we fought a costly and, as it turned out, unnecessary war in Iraq and are still fighting a second one in Afghanistan, neither of them paid for. One wonders what the response would have been if the government had asked the voters: We feel for the good of the country we have to invade Iraq. How much more in taxes are you willing to pay to have us do that? And finally there was the prescription drug benefit, whose num-bers were greatly fudged to get it through Congress. That wasnt paid for either. We might have survived that fiscal recklessness if the economy hadnt tanked in the worst recession since the Great Depression. The loss of tax revenue and the huge amounts of federal money spend to stop the bleeding drove us deep into the hole and now were slowly starting to climb out as the econo-my picks up. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicts the defi-cit will drop to $845 billion this year, and, the CBO says, even if Congress does nothing the deficit will drop to $430 billion by 2015, about what it was in 2008 as the economy began to crater. But then the fiscal good news runs out and absent higher taxes, cuts in the rate of increase in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid or a wholly improbably growth spurt in the economy, we will be back where we started. Not a good place to be. 4AOPINIOND espite diatribes to the contrary, American corporations include multitudes that are tough-minded, occasionally brilliant and manifestly capable, a major reason the stock market is not just alive and well, but downright perky. Thats worth a grin, as is the somewhat misleading decline in the unemployment rate. But dont sup-pose the government cant change that to a frown, even wailing and gnashing of teeth. Its trying right now. Corporations have not had an easy go of it in either the past reces-sion or a recovery in which federal wizards aimed to spend us out of trouble, thereby spending us into danger. Yet even with the worry of catastrophic debt default, the coming of the ultra-burdensome Affordable Care Act -Obamacare -and still other regulatory death-traps, any number of corporations big and small have managed to earn credible profits. One means was cutting costs, and one way of accomplishing that end was to do more with less labor, horrifying many on the left. They think that, instead of increasing efficiency in hard times, businesses should convert to welfare agencies. Many, of course, would then go out of business, or at the least perform abysmally. Brave, bold profits, on the other hand, set them up for a sterling future of expansion and -lets all say hallelujah -hiring sprees. Investors see this, they begin to have hope where there was very little, they invest more, stock prices go up and the left sneers. The supposition, as economically uninformed as it is ideologically inspired, is that the stock market is just a way for the rich to get richer. The actuality is that about half of all Americans have stock invest-ments, and whether the stocks are individually owned or, say, part of a union pension fund, owners profit when stocks grow in value. If that pension fund is for government workers, some taxpayers get off a hook or two. When investments by nonprofit groups do well, they can provide more services to the needy. As their value goes up and they get more capital, businesses can provide more goods, services, tax revenue and occupations that put money in pockets and not infre-quently do something that too often gets lost in the discussion. Jobs can add purpose to human lives. Of course, it wasnt just corporate character and cleverness that led to the latest rise in stocks, but a num-ber of other factors, not the least of which was the Federal Reserve and its easy money policies. Though those policies help boost stock prices, they also threaten runaway inflation. If you think the Federal Reserve is always a lifeguard and never an anchor tied to a swimmers foot, think again. Easy money helped drag us into a recession along with crony capitalism and fed-eral policies that prompted people to buy houses they could not afford. Theres little that big, bad Wall Street did wrong that was not abet-ted by big, bad government. The other cheering news of the moment is that unemployment is down to 7.7 percent of those seek-ing work. The heart palpitates at a slower speed when we realize we got there in large part because of ever fewer people seeking work. Thats not all there is to it -the construction industry is growing again and 236,000 jobs were created last month -but vast numbers have retreated in the battle to secure employment. The cure is really, truly vigorous economic growth that we can only instigate and sustain if the admin-istration quits handling the politics of overspending by exaggeration, trickery and blatant insincerity. At some point, we need serious-ness about long-term reductions of a debt that could turn our world upside down. In the meanwhile, the free citizenry and a private sector of amazing energy and ingenuity are edging us in the right direction. The govern-ment obstructs, but we the people keep doing our best to overcome.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, March 15 & 16, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A6AF&V T omorrow is perhaps the busiest day in every week. Mark Twain once said, Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow. Im pretty sure he had going to the den-tist, balancing his checkbook, or maybe starting a new diet in mind. All of these seem like really good ideas to do tomor-row. Defined as the habitual and intentional act of delaying doing or completing a responsibility, procrastination has been called opportunitys assassin. If we are honest, most of us recognize it as a bad habit that adds unneces-sary stress to our lives. One of the earliest recorded occurrences of procrastination in the Bible is in the book of Exodus. Moses is having yet another meeting with Egypts pharaoh about letting Gods people go, and has the added leverage of the plague of frogs for motivation. He tells pharaoh, I leave to you the honor of set-ting the time for me to pray for you and your officials and your people that you and your houses may be rid of the frogs Pharaohs answer? Tomorrow. (Exodus 8:9-10) No rhyme or reason to that, unless he had a plan for frog legs for supper lots of them. Why else would you keep a house full of frogs around lon-ger than absolutely necessary? Procrastination lets just not deal with it today. In all seriousness, procrastination is one of the most effective weapons against experiencing success and living as an over-comer of our struggles. It harms us by making sure that opportunities on the job and involving our education are lost because we miss deadlines and are labeled as undependable. Unfinished projects, broken promises and lack of growth result in seriously damaged relationships. Procrastination even takes a toll on our health: ignore that symptom or avoid a check-up long enough and there could be trouble. What are you putting off, and what could it possibly cost you? Proverbs 27:1 brings a healthy perspective: Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. When we procrastinate, we are boasting that we have the right to a tomorrow, (a tomor-row without its own set of struggles), and the truth is, we may not. We also are giving our-selves an excuse not to deal with things that are causing harm today. Problem is, the longer we leave it, the more damage it will cause. Last, but not least, we are developing a bad habit that can become a way of life. Hebrews 3:7-8 gives us the cure: Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts Hear in this passage implies more than just listening. It means to attend to; to consider what is or has been said. Harden in the origi-nal Greek actually translates to become stubborn. In the south, we might say it like this, Dont be so hard-headed, for cryin out loud, and tend to what needs tending! Lets not put off till tomorrow what really needs to be tended to today, for there is much to lose, and our hearts well, they really do matter.

Follow Angie on Twitter: Angie Land @HeartMttrs.Biblical bungling bunionsI n 1968, the bulletin was issued from when desir-ous that was so tragic that it was hilarious so piti-ful it was almost unbelievable. An aged gentleman went into the hospital for surgery. It seems he was the victim of bun-ions. While under anesthetic, his troubles began. He experi-enced a cardiac arrest and so the doctors promptly opened his chest cavity and massaged his heart. In the process an instrument punctured his stom-ach. In the process of moving him, he fell from the stretcher and broke both a leg and an arm. When he returned from surgery, he had a breathing tube in his throat, a drainage tube in his stomach, and both his arm and leg wearing a cast. The pitiful thing was he still had his bunions. Have you ever gone to church to be healed and returned home all wrapped up in bandages, and worse off than you were before you went? Or maybe you remember the last time you tried to straighten out a simple misunderstanding with a broth-er in Christ or even a neighbor or friend at work, but it ended up worse than it was before. For those teenagers who may be reading, there have been times when you took your problems to a friend, but they just didnt understand, or maybe they reacted wrongly. Instead of finding a solution and healing, you come away with more prob-lems. Everyone needs help at sometime or other, but the big question is who to get it from? In Jesus day, the people were eager and searching for a relationship with God. All they had were the religious leaders, like the pharisees, the saddu-cees, and teachers of the law. They were more like a religious Gestapo. They were more inter-ested in their positions than in being spiritual physicians. Jesus said they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. He said they actually got in the way of those who wanted to find God. Jesus, the Great Physician, challenged this hypocrisy. Jesus is the true doctor of the soul. He is the great physician. He wants to heal the hurt, lift up the fallen. In Luke 4:1630, Jesus comes to Nazareth where he had been brought up. He goes to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stands up to read the Scriptures. He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah, he opened it and read, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Bunions are bad but thats not the worst thing that can happen to you. Jesus is the great healer of the heart and soul, He gave His life for you. If you are looking for Him, I want to offer a free Bible study, called Redeemed. Just go to my website and its there for you, along with a way to com-municate and ask questions.

That is a great question. So lets meditate upon this. Early in His ministry, Jesus goes to Nazareth, His home-town and wants to preach to the people. He is so overwhelm-ingly rejected that He does very few miracles there. Luke (4:16ff) records that when Jesus commented on the passage from the Old Testament that He had just read, the people tried to stone Him but He escaped. Matthew and Mark record the reactions of the towns people as asking, Where did this man get His wisdom and His ability to perform miracles? On another occasion, when Jesus was at His home, His family rescued Him from the crowds who were outside. The family of Jesus said, He has lost His senses (Mark 3:21). One year when the Feast of Booths was at hand (John 7:2) the brothers of Jesus made some derogatory remarks to Jesus and the author of the gos-pel of John comments, for not even His brothers were believ-ing in Him (John 7:5). Mark (6:3) and Matthew (13:55) records that Jesus had four brothers, one of which was named James. It is believed that this James became a leader of the church in Jerusalem (Acts 15) as well as the James who Paul identi-fies to the Galatians as the Lords brother (Galatians 1:19). Some even think that this same James is the author of the New Testament book, James. So what caused this unbeliever to become a believer? What caused this half-brother of Jesus to change his beliefs about his brother? Why would this James refer to Jesus as Lord and to himself as a bond-servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ (James 1:1)? The answer must be that he heard of the things which Jesus did, especially His death and resurrection. James knew his brother as they were growing up. In the beginning of the min-istry of Jesus, James probably heard about the miracles Jesus did but probably paid no attention to them, after all they were brothers; they had grown up in the same household. They had the same mother. James knew Jesus possibly when Jesus was a teenager or a young man before Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. The miracles attributed to Jesus, James may have just passed off as, that cant be my brother. However, if James witnessed the death of his brother, he might have begun to question himself as to whether or not Jesus could have really done the things He said He had done. But, when James saw his brother after the resurrection of Jesus, then things would take on a whole different meaning. When James considered the resurrection of Jesus, the empty tomb, and the appearances of Jesus to various people and groups (consult 1 Corinthians 15:5-8), he possibly had enough evidence to produce the faith in himself that Jesus was truly who He said He was. James became a believer in Jesus the same way that we become a believer in Jesus. He had to consider the evidence that was presented about the life of Jesus. He had to meditate upon the things which he read and say to himself, Do I believe this or not? The gospel writers present enough information about Jesus to cause us to believe (John 20:30, 31). If a half-brother of Jesus can change his mind and believe, can we not become believers in Jesus also? Read the testimony, consider the evi-dence and become a believer just like James. BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeakcarlton_mc@msn.com Q Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City area. All Scriptural quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, Holman Bible Publishers, unless otherwise noted. By BRIAN MURPHYAssociated PressVATICAN CITY At gatherings of Latin American bishops, then-Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was often a star speaker about economic inequities in a profit-driven world. He also has used the forums to warn fellow church leaders about drifting from core Catholic values and teachings. The twin messages are now expected to frame the beginning of the papacy of Pope Francis: Reinforcing the Vaticans views on issues such as birth control and womens ordination that will dis-appoint reform-minded followers, yet showing an activist streak that could hearten others pushing for greater attention to problems that include poverty and international debt. These broad ideological strokes drawn clearly over decades in the Argentine church will likely be accompanied by growing nuances and initiatives demanded by the modern papacy that requires diplomatic skill, mana-gerial acumen and a degree of pastoral flair. His emphasis on clerical simplicity and populism, including efforts to keep divorced Catholics and unmarried mothers in the churchs fold, could raise alarms among staunch conservatives about a reorientation of Vatican priorities after eight years of strict guidance under Benedict XVI, who spent most of his Vatican career as the main doctrinal enforcer. Through lesser-known gestures and comments in the past, the first Latin American pontiff also has shown an inclination to expand interfaith outreach to Islam and Judaism, and efforts to further close the nearly 1,000-year estrangement with the Orthodox churches. The popes historical namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, is described in church lore as walk-ing unarmed to meet an Islamic ruler during the 13th century Crusades in a gesture of respect and shared humanity. In his first Mass on Thursday as pope, Francis reinforced his pasto-ral priorities and service during a brief homily in the Sistine Chapel that was simple and inclusive, call-ing on all Catholics to help build the church and walk with the faith. Without such collective spir-it, he said the underpinnings grow weak. What happens when children build sand castles on the beach? he told the congregation that included the cardinals who elect-ed him. It all comes down. The pope then showed a sterner side by citing the words of French writer Leon Bloy, an agnostic who experienced a strong religious conversion before his death in 1917: He who doesnt pray to the Lord prays to the devil. To focus on the new pope only as a traditionalist is wrong, as is only to focus on him as a champion for economic justice, said Ambrogio Piazzoni, a church historian and vice-prefect of the Vatican library. He is both and much more. This will be a papacy of complexity. A Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Thomas Rosica, described the ini-tial period of any papacy as days of surprise. But core elements of Pope Francis pontificate are already informed by his Jesuit order. Its nearly 500-year history has been marked by hostility from the Vatican over perceived disobedience.

(H) Oct. 25 Suwannee (H) Nov. 1 Taylor County (A) Nov. 8 Buchholz (H) F ort White football coach Demetric Jackson released the fall schedule and it includes a lot of old and a little bit of new. The Indians moved up to District 2-4A and tripled their district opponents from one to three. The new district includes Madison County, Taylor County and Fernandina Beach. Fort White spent four years in a district with Madison County when the FHSAA experimented with a four-year plan from 2005-08. Taylor County has been a regular opponent and an off-and-on district foe for a while. Fort White played a home-and-away series with Fernandina Beach the last two years. With the loss of Santa Fe and Union County, Jackson had to scuffle a bit. The Indians are taking on Class 7A schools Chiles and Buchholz. Hamilton County and Newberry returned to the schedule and former district opponent Bradford is back. Suwannee is back to give the Indians more neighborhood games. Jackson has also signed up Faith Christian Academy of Brandon. Dixie County returns to the schedule as the kickoff classic opponent. It is a pretty tough schedule, Jackson said. There are some teams we match up well with, but that is a pretty rough stretch in the last four games of the season. We can compete with Suwannee and Taylor, but the question is will we be healthy at that part of the season. Newberry occupies the second playing date for the eight straight season. It is an early test, Jackson said. You have got to be ready. We have had some real good games with them the last couple of years. It is good to get Bradford and Dixie County back on the schedule. We havent played Dixie in a couple of years and he called me. We play Bradford in all the other sports. Fort White will play host to Columbia High in the spring game on May 17.

Fort White squeaks by Lady Rams, 4-3 By TIM KIRBY email@example.com FORT WHITE Fort White Highs softball team won a 4-3 squeaker over visiting Interlachen High on Thursday. The district win by the Lady Indians avenged an earlier loss to the Lady Rams. Fort White pitcher Morgan Cushman was spectacular through fiveplus innings, retiring 14-of-16 batters. She fin ished with a six-hitter with 11 strikeouts and one walk. Two of the runs were earned. Fort White scored one run in the second inning and three runs in the third. Shea Chesney beat out an infield single to open the second inning. Caitlin Bruce forced her at second and Kayla Redwine sacri ficed. Bruce later scored on a passed ball. The three runs in the third inning came with two outs. Alexa Hatcher walked and Ashley Chesney fol lowed with a single. Shea Chesney ripped an 0-2 pitch to the gap in rightcenterfield for a triple and followed the two runners home when Interlachen (7-8, 1-4) lost control of the ball in the infield. Shea Chesney was 3-for-3 at the plate. Ayla Gonzalez and Bruce had the other hits for Fort White. They played together as a team, Fort White head coach Cassie Sparks said.

The owners, who meet next week in Phoenix, also will consider a change to instant replay rules allow-ing for a video review even when a coach makes an illegal challenge. Under the tuck rule, if a passer is in the act of bring-ing the ball down into his body rather than throwing it and loses control, it is ruled an incomplete pass. The proposal under con-sideration would make it a fumble. Competition Committee co-chairman Rich McKay, president of the Atlanta Falcons, noted the controversial history of the tuck rule Thursday. He said the change has full support from on-field officials, par-ticularly now that all turn-overs are automatically reviewed. What is happening is a great majority of these plays are appropriately called fumbles, McKay said on a conference call. Then offi-cials go into replay and look at it, and under the rule if the tuck had not been com-pleted (the call) has to be reversed from ... a fumble. They think they can call it and can understand when a passer has lost control of the ball, so we felt more comfortable proposing the rule. The rule was among the NFLs most obscure until it became infamous during the 2001 playoffs in New England, when Tom Brady apparently lost a fumble late in a game against Oakland. Initially ruled a fumble, it was reversed under the tuck rule, the Patriots kept the ball and eventually beat the Raiders. Replay also plays a key role in another potential rule change. Last Thanksgiving, Detroit coach Jim Schwartz challenged what officials ruled was an 81-yard scor-ing run by Houstons Justin Forsett. Because all scor-ing plays are reviewed, Schwartz was not allowed to throw the red flag, and by doing so he negated use of replay. Forsett clearly had been down by contact earlier in the run, but the touchdown stood and the Texans went on to win in overtime. McKay called the way the rule stood an anomaly.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 15-16, 2013 DEAR ABBY: I am a young woman on a pre-dominantly male college campus. One morning, while walking to a class, I had the misfortune of walking a few feet ahead of a pair of boys who were having an incredibly offensive and loud conver-sation about their sexual interests. It was extremely derogatory toward women, and just plain disgusting. In a situation like this, would it have been inap-propriate for me to turn around and say something, or was it better to just hold my tongue and walk fast-er? I have discussed this with some of my sorority sisters and we are anx-ious to hear your answer because Im not the only one who has encountered this. -OFFENDED IN GEORGIA DEAR OFFENDED: You were right not to challenge them. Because this isnt an isolated incident, what you have described could be considered a form of sexual harassment. You and your sorority sisters should -as a group -bring this to the attention of the dean because you are a minority on that campus and the boys apparently havent learned to function in an integrated environ-ment. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Can a sexless marriage last? My wife and I have been mar-ried for 17 years and our sex life has been slowing for a long time. We have sex less than 10 times a year. We get along great and are the best of friends. My wife is attractive and fun to be with, and I dont know what happened to us. What causes women to lose their sex drive? (Then they wonder why their husbands have affairs.) My wife is in good health. There are no medi-cal issues. We are more friends than lovers. I dont think shes involved with anyone else. I want a fun, active sex life, but I dont want to upset her or lose the closeness we have. Its just that Im watching our sex life evaporate. Please help. -MIKE IN MISSOURI DEAR MIKE: As women age, their hormone levels decrease, which can cause the sex drive to diminish. The reduced hormone levels can also make sex painful. If your wife would discuss these changes with her gynecologist or an endocrinologist, there may be a solution that would put some spark back in your marriage. However, that wont happen unless you are able to speak frankly with her about whats bothering you. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been studying my whole life to become a classi-cal singer. Many people have put great effort into helping me to succeed, especially my mother, who wanted to be an opera singer when she was my age. She is not a pushy stage mother, though. I chose to pursue music myself. However, I have recently realized my heart is not fully in it and that Id rath-er go to law school. Im afraid to tell my mother and the other people about my decision because they have invested so much in me as a performer. I dont want to disappoint them, but my passion is now constitutional law. How do I share the news without breaking my mothers heart? -SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE DEAR SINGING: Your mother may be disap-pointed, but her heart will heal. If your passion is not in opera singing, the truth is you wont go very far in the field. (Even people who are passionate about it dont always succeed.) Wanting to be a lawyer is nothing to be ashamed of. Follow your dream. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I are in our 20s and have been dating for five years. Were renovat-ing a home that we will live in once its completed. We have never lived together before. During the renovation I have come to the house to find that he has opened packages that were addressed to me. The first time, I didnt say anything because I thought he might have thought it was his. After the second and third times, I mentioned -nicely -that they werent his to open. He claims he knew they were things for the house, which is why he opened them. How can I make it clear that I expect him to respect my personal mail when he thinks this is no big deal? -NO RESPECT IN NEW YORK DEAR NO RESPECT: If I were you, Id be less concerned about his open-ing your packages and far more concerned that when you tell him something bothers you, he ignores it. His disregard for your feel-ings is a red flag. Your boyfriend appears to think that what is yours is his. Is the reverse also true? (Ill bet its not.) Does he also check your phone messages and email? Does this extend to any other areas of your relationship? If this was only about his opening your mail, I would advise you to open a post office box in your name only. However, if the answer to any of my ques-tions is yes, I think you should take a sober look at the entire relationship. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law is addicted to prescription painkillers and has been for more than 10 years. She went to rehab once, but relapsed and hasnt been able to get clean since. She has tried to quit on her own, but ends up having great emotional stress and slight psychotic episodes and starts again. My problem is, my husband sees her addiction as manageable. He sees no harm in having her watch our 3-year-old daughter, even though he has told me he has seen her nod off with her eyes rolled back like drug addicts do, usually during the afternoon. When we argue about this, he becomes defensive and attacks my family for being overpro-tective and paranoid. Am I right to put my foot down? Im sick and tired of fighting over this. -NOT PARANOID IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR NOT PARANOID: Continue putting your foot down! A person whose eyes have rolled back after taking drugs or alcohol hasnt nodded off. The person has lost consciousness and PASSED OUT. In your mother-in-laws case, it means that while she may be physically present, she is completely unavailable to supervise your child. Leaving your daughter under the care of a person in this condition is child endangerment. Thats why you cant allow it. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Would you please settle a friendly debate between me and my friends? Is it ever appropriate to use your cellphone to update social media or send a text message during a church sermon, or is it still considered a rude act? -OLD-FASHIONED IN KENTUCKY DEAR OLDFASHIONED: Its still con-sidered rude. In a house of worship, we are supposed to be thinking about more important things than our social schedule, our Facebook page or who tweeted us. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Refrain from being impulsive. Knowledge and exploring new possibilities can help you raise your income.

FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 15-16, 2013 PUZZLES & COMICS LAKE CITY REPORTER 5B DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CELEBRITY CIPHER CLASSIC PEANUTS PUZZLE ANSWERS
By Bob Wattendorf and Drew DuttererT he Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission often focuses on big, marquee water bodies, such as the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes or Lake Okeechobee, but also works on smaller water bodies with great fishing potential. Many smaller lakes have fisheries that compare favorably with big lakes when it comes to catch rates and quality-size fish. Check out recent results on TrophyCatchFlorida.com for proof. Small lakes accommodate smaller boats and are less crowded, appealing to many anglers. Below is a description of some relatively small, public lakes from around the state that are worth exploring with rod and reel. Alligator Lake in Columbia County is east of U.S. Highway 441 in Lake City and is between 300 and 800 acres depending on water levels. As with many north Florida lakes, it has been plagued by low water during the last decade. However, Tropical Storm Debby refilled it last June. The FWC was quick to take advantage of the lakes restored water levels by stocking redear sunfish and bluegill in September 2012, and a stocking of largemouth bass is planned for spring 2013. Despite recent droughts, a handful of deep areas held water. These refuges sustained enough fish to renew the fishery, and fish should grow rapidly due to newly available habitat and resulting forage. In August 2012, Bernard Donnell Jr. caught a near state-record, 17-pound, 1-ounce trophy bass from Alligator Lake. If rainfall keeps Alligator Lake full, look for this fishery to re-establish itself as a winner. Merritts Mill Pond, Jackson County, is east of Marianna and U.S. Highway 90 and covers 202 acres. Merritts Mill Pond is spring-filled with crystal clear water and lots of submerged plants. The pond is known for Floridas state-record (4.86 pounds) redear sunfish, which was caught in 1986. It still produces quality redear, plus bluegill and spotted sunfish. The water clarity that makes Merritts Mill Pond a scenic gem makes fish shy, which can present challenges to anglers and biologists. Despite the challenge, biologists routinely collect quality bass, and recent sampling indicates an increasing average weight of bass. With three access points and lots of protection from wind, Merritts Mill Pond is a small-craft-friendly lake, and paddlers may have an advantage in catching more and bigger fish. Lake Gibson, in Polk County, is north of Interstate 4 and Lakeland and comprises 480 acres. Gibson has a productive bass fishery, and recent monitoring suggests the bass fishery excels in number and size of bass. FWCs current angler survey shows anglers are reporting an average catch of one bass per hour, which is more than double the statewide average. Electrofishing surveys on Lake Gibson have collected bass that ranged from a few inches (a sign of successful spawning) up to 9 pounds. Several bass over 8 pounds were tagged last year as part of an FWC study evaluating catch of trophy largemouth bass. A tagged bass (9.5 pounds) was recently caught and released by a local angler. Lake Gibson is home to quality sunfish and catfish populations, offering multispecies fishing opportunities. The lake has a public boat ramp off Socrum Loop Road and Lake Gibson Drive. Lake Baldwin is an Orange County lake just north of State Road 50 near Orlando Executive Airport and is approximately 225 acres. Orange County is peppered with scores of lakes, some more deserving of your attention than others. Lake Baldwin is one you should try. There, bass anglers have been experiencing some of the highest catch rates in the area. Bass average 2 pounds or less; however, high catch rates are great for developing a fishing interest in younger anglers. FWC staff planted eelgrass recently, and the city built two fishing piers. Although there is bank fishing in Baldwin Park, the best fishing is by boat. A public boat ramp is on the south shore. Boaters with motors greater than 10 horsepower have a no wake restriction. Lake Osborne is in Palm Beach County just west of Interstate 95 and Lake Worth and covers 356 acres. Amid canals and the urban backdrop of south Florida, Lake Osborne provides exceptional freshwater fishing opportunities. Anglers enjoy catching largemouth bass, sunshine bass, black crappie, bluegill, redear sunfish, catfish and Mayan cichlids in this park-like atmosphere. Sunshine bass are hybrids (produced and stocked by FWC hatcheries) of striped bass and white bass and handle warm waters better than their parents. Look for them in open-water portions of the lake or deep, constricted areas such as the 6th Avenue pass. A large stocking of hybrids last year should have the fishery primed this spring. FWC installed nine fish attractors that congregate fish for anglers. John Prince Park provides bank access, a fishing pier and a public boat ramp.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 15 & 16, 2013 7B7BNascar NASCARs $25,000 fine imposed on Denny Hamlin for h is mild criticism of the Generation 6 race car and the kind of r acing it produced at Phoenix International Raceway, coupled with Haml ins insistence that he wont pay the fine, has brought into questi on NASCARs recent crackdown on free speech by race drivers. In recent years, NASCAR has been fining drivers, so me in secret and some openly, when they said something NASCAR of ficials deemed critical of the sport. Many of those drivers have become less willing to e xpress their true feelings. Driver-turned-TV-analyst Dale Jarrett said last wee k that in light of Hamlins penalty, anything any driver says about th e racing with the Gen-6 car is going to be looked upon with suspicion Now, when a driver says this car is great, the fan s are going to think that all is contrived, Jarrett said. NASCARs current method of dealing with outspokenne ss on the part of its race drivers is far different than it o nce was. Some of the sports all-time great drivers also wer e some of the most vocal. Many fans remember hearing drivers like Dale Earnhardt, Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip making comments m uch stronger than Hamlins at Phoenix, but not being punished. Even in the days when NASCAR founder Bill France Sr was known for ruling the sport with an iron first, drivers an d car owners could offer criticism without being fined. In Greg Fieldens Forty Years of Stock Car Racing, the top drivers and car owners of the day often had strong words ab out the dangers of racing in the mid-1960s, boycotts by various man ufacturers and about NASCARs rules enforcement. Some strong words were said at a race at Atlanta in 1966 after NASCAR officials basically threw out the rule book in an attempt to drum up interest in the sport. After seeing some of the aerodynamic trickery on th e Yellow Banana Ford that Junior Johnson got by the NASCAR inspectors as well as Smokey Yunicks handi-work on his Chevrolet, Cotton Owens put some simi-lar, question-able devices on his Dodge, driven by David Pearson, who at that time was lead-ing the points standings. Owens was nabbed by inspectors and withdrew his car in protes t, saying: This was the only way we could be competitive with these other two Funny Cars. You have to fight fire with fire. Thi s may cause me and David to lose the championship, but somebody has to stand up for what it right. France later acknowledged that mistakes were made b y the sanctioning body. I admit the rules were bent at Atlanta, he said, promising to stick to the rule book in the future. Pearson and Owens sat out the Atlanta race, and sev en others of the 49 on the schedule, but still won the championship. Despite admitting mistakes, France retained a firm grip on the leadership of the sport. The manufacturers all even tually returned in force. And many of the most outspoken critics of NASCAR at that time wound up among the first four classes of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.Hornish Jr. wins Sams Town 300Sam Hornish Jr., the one-time IndyCar star now racing in NASCARs Nationwide Series, dominated Saturdays Sams Town 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and picked up a trophy that already had his name on it. It was his second career Nationwide win, and it put him in sole possession of the series points lead. Hornish and his crew chief, Sprint Cup veteran Greg Erwin, are racing in the second-tier series but hoping to one day rejoin the elite Sprint Cup circuit. It is great for us to all be hungry the way we are, and we feel like we have a lot of good opportunities here at Penske Racing, Hornish said. [Team owner] Roger [Penske] has said many times he wants a third Cup team again, and we want to make sure we do things the right way. Hornish led four times for a race-high 114 laps, but had to hold off Kyle Busch on a late-race restart to secure the win. Busch said his No. 54 Toyota was no match for Hornishs No. 12 Ford. There at the end it felt like we were getting beat everywhere all the way around the race track a solid tenth-and-a-half or two [seconds per lap], he said. You hate to see that, especially with so many mile-and-a-half race tracks we go to this year.Danicas rookie strugglesAfter a strong pole-winning, top-10 result in the Daytona 500, Danica Patrick has had more rookie-like results in the subsequent two races. At Phoenix, she qualified 40th, blew a tire, wrecked and finished 39th. Then last Sunday at Las Vegas, she struggled from the start and finished 33rd, six laps down. We knew we were going to have tough days, but this is not the kind of tough day we thought about, she said. We need to figure out how and why it (the car) changes so much from practice to the race and really learn this new car. Being behind traffic, the aerodynamics change a lot, and its a handful. I felt like I was about to spin on the frontstraight. We just have to figure out how to make it better and ... make sure that we never have this day again. Shes now 30th in the standings, 53 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson.Enfinger gets big winGrant Enfinger, who races occasionally in the Camping World Truck Series, got the big-gest win of his career over the weekend when he won the ARCA Mobile 200 at his home track, Mobile International Speedway. Enfinger, of nearby Fairhope, Ala., took the lead on Lap 172, then held off 15-year-old Kyle Benjamin on a restart with nine laps remaining to seal the victory, which also was his first in the ARCA series. I knew we were going to get here, I just didnt think it would take this long, Enfinger said in Victory Lane. I started knocking on the door in 2009, and I dont know how many secondand third-place finishes I had. NUMERICALLY SPEAKINGPoints positions gained by Kasey Kahne at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, to 14th in the standings, the most of any Sprint Cup driver Points positions lost by J.J. Yeley, to 26th, after finishing 36th at Las Vegas, the most of any Sprint Cup driver Drivers in the top 10 in Sprint Cup points without a top-five finish this year (Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer and Aric Almirola) Laps led by Kyle Busch in the past 16 Sprint Cup races at Bristol Motor Speedway, top among all drivers13 173 Matt Kenseth won Sundays Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in much the same fashion as he did the 24 Sprint Cup races hed won previously by getting the most out of his car when it counted. He took the lead by making a gas-only trip down pit road and led the final 41 laps, holding off Kasey Kahne, who not only had a faster car, but fresher tires. Matt did everything right, Kahne said. This is not the guy you want to have to race with 10 (laps) to go because hes going to do everything right. He did a perfect job and we came back second. But this victory, Kenseths third at Las Vegas, was dif-ferent. For starters, it came on his birthday, something that has happened only to two other drivers in the history of the Cup series. Cale Yarborough won on his birthday, March 27, at North Wilkesboro Speedway, in 1977, and again at Atlanta Motor Speedway on his birthday in 1983, and Kenseths teammate Kyle Busch won on his birthday, May 2, at Richmond International Raceway in 2009. Kenseths victory also was significant because it was his first since joining Joe Gibbs Racing at the start of the season. All of Kenseths previous victories came while he was driving for Roush Fenway Racing. Kenseth said in his winners interview that he never doubted hed be able to win in Gibbs No. 20 Toyota. Nevertheless, he was glad to be in Victory Lane after just three races. Im not a huge goal person, but my goal was to win and to win early, he said. Nobody has put any pressure on me except for myself, but I also know that Coach (Joe Gibbs) hired me to come in there and climb in that car and win races, so you certainly want to do that and you dont want to disappoint people. Kenseth went on to say that he doesnt believe the racing world has seen all theyre going to see of him and his Jason Ratcliff-led team this season. I feel like this is the beginning, he said. I have a lot of confidence, had a lot of confidence after our first meeting and decided to go do this and just had a great feeling about it. And I still do ...Its always great to get a win early in the season, but you certain-ly dont want to act like it stops. He said he was already thinking about what he needs to do at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend. Thats the great thing about the sport, he said. It never stops. You only get to enjoy [winning] for a couple of days. Ratcliff sounded as if he and Kenseth are thinking alike about where theyre headed this year. Weve just got a great group here, and weve got Matt and were going to win a lot of races, I think, he said. I knew that we would get to Victory Lane at some point, and to do it this early in the season is great, and Im looking forward to the rest of the season. Team owner Joe Gibbs had been to Victory Lane in the Sprint Cup Series 100 times before Sunday, but it also was a new experience for him, especially after his driv-ers had engine problems the past two weeks, and one of them, Denny Hamlin, ran afoul of NASCAR for his post-race comments at Phoenix. In tough times, everybody kind of bands together around our place, and we start fighting and we worked our way out of some tough things, he said. And he said he was proud of his newest driver and the contributions hes making to the entire organiza-tion. Obviously, Matt has just been special, Gibbs said. I think Denny (Hamlin) and Kyle (Busch) both really respect him. I think thats helped a lot. I think he kind of likes working with them, so weve got three guys that really, I think, can get after it and drive a race car.
