By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA severe thunderstorm caused significant dam-age to Lake City neigh-borhoods Saturday after-noon when its straight-line winds toppled tress, downed power lines, caused localized flooding and interrupted power for hours to thousands of resi-dents. At least six families were displaced from their homes due to storm dam-age, emergency officials said. Tree limbs, branches, trash cans, power lines and other debris littered the streets and trees fell onto the roofs of a num-ber of area homes. Traffic signals in the downtown area were out and many downtown businesses and homes were without power for six or more hours. Shayne Morgan, Columbia County Emergency Management director, said the storm passed through the area around 1 p.m. and brought and estimated 2 -2.5 inches of rain. He said officials from the National Weather Service in Jacksonville told him additional storms were forming and expected to move into the area. In addi-tion, he said a squall line bringing 50-60 mph winds By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man died when his pickup collided with a tractor trailer hauling grain at 8:30 a.m. Friday on U.S. 441 North. Joseph Ambrose Buba Smith, 33, died when his 1994 Ford Ranger trav-eled north on U.S. 441 and drifted into the southbound lane where the pickup sideswiped the left rear tractor trailer tires before crash-ing into the trailers left rear tandem tires head-on. Eddie B. Feagle, 50, of Bronson, the tractor-trailer driver, was traveling south on U.S. 441 and took evasive action before the impact, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Presley had served as secretary for the organiza-tion for more than 30 years. The reason I resigned (as secretary) is the NAACP has mistreated my wife and my family, and the local branchs failure to support me as a longtime warrior for the community and the NAACP, Presley said. His resignation came after NAACP leadership did not respond to letters he and his wife, Bernice, sent appealing Bernice Presleys removal as president of the Columbia County branch. Bernice Presley was elected president of the organization, but removed by NAACP leadership after Bernice Presley attempted to have a restraining order placed on Debra White. White ran against Bernice Presley in the local NAACP election. Bernice Presley sought the restraining order after a confrontation between the two women in the park-ing lot of the Richardson Community Center in November. Glynnell Presley said after his wife was removed as president, they filed an appeal. He said the NAACPs constitution requires leader-ship respond in 60 days. He said it has been more than 80 days with no response. The Presleys have sent let-ters and emails, but recieved have no response. He said he is still a member of the organization, but cant continue as secretary with what he said he feels is disrespectful leadership. How can I continue to serve an organization that violates the basic principals the NAACP was founded (on)? Glynnell said. Glynnell Presley joined the organization in 1953, and has championed many important issues for black residents.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 4-7-13-38 2 Friday: 5-6-7-9-19 Saturday: Afternoon: 1-1-1 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 5-1-3-6 Evening: N/A W ednes day: 7-11-23-30-35-47 x2 House approves ban on Internet cafes TALLAHASSEE Internet cafes across Florida could soon be forced to close their doors as state lawmakers continue to move swiftly to outlaw the storefront operations. The Florida House on Friday voted overwhelm ingly to approve a ban on the cafes, and the Senate is expected to follow soon and send a bill to Gov. Rick Scott. The Legislature is feel ing pressure to act in the wake of an investigation into the Allied Veterans of the World charity. It was accused of running a $290 million illegal gambling business that directed most of the proceeds into its owners pockets. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who has not been accused of any wrongdoing, resigned last week after she was questioned about con sulting work she did for Allied. This will be one of the largest contractions of gaming that weve experienced in our state certainly over the last 50 or 100 years, said Rep. Carlos Trujillo, R-Miami and sponsor of the ban. It sends a message to all the people who are out there stealing from seniors and exploiting the good names of veterans. We dont want you here in Florida. You werent welcome before. You wont be welcome in the future. The vote was 108-7 in favor of the bill. Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, predicts the bill will be sent to Gov. Rick Scott before the ses sion ends in early May. Contribution limit increase OKd TALLAHASSEE Campaign contribu tion limits would soar from $500 to $5,000 for statewide candidates and $3,000 for legislative and other candidates under a wide-ranging bill passed by the House on Friday. The bill (HB 569) would also eliminate committees of continuous existence, or CCEs, which critics say have been used as slush funds for legislators. It also would require candidates to report donations more frequently and would allow lawmakers to keep up to $20,000 for their re-elec tion campaigns. Current law requires candidates to close down their accounts after an election. Republicans praised the bill as giving the public more knowledge about who is supporting campaigns and how the money is being spent, say ing millions of dollars are filtered through shadowy committees. Democrats said the measure is merely an effort to protect incum bents. In the world that I live, bringing tens of millions of dollars out of the shadows and into the sunshine is a clear example of transpar ency. If you have been in this process long enough, you have seen the hide and seek of the campaign dollar. Lets all know where the money comes from, and lets all know where the money is spent, said Rep. Ronald Renuart, R-Ponte Vedra Beach. Bill to end state pension plan OKd TALLAHASSEE New state and county employ ees and teachers will be shut out of Floridas tradi tional pension plan under a bill passed by the Florida House on Friday. The bill (HB 7011), passed by a 74-42 vote, does away with guaranteed pensions for workers hired as of Jan. 1, 2014. The measure a priority of Speaker Will Weatherford replaces pensions with individual investment accounts similar to 401(k) plans, but it does grandfa ther current employees in the existing pension plan. Teen fatally shoots brother ORLANDO Authorities say a central Florida teen fatally shot his younger brother. Orlando police say officers responded to a shooting call at the Nona Crest subdivision Friday afternoon. A 12-year-old boy was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died. Investigators say the boys 16-year-old brother was the shooter, but they determined it was an acci dent. Officials say the family is cooperating fully, and the teen wont face any charges at this time. Detectives will be meet ing at a later date with the State Attorneys Office to discuss the case and decide if there was any negligence. Instructor, student die while skydiving ZEPHYRHILLS Authorities say a skydive instructor and a student who jumped separately have died in Florida. The skydivers, both men, were part of a jump Saturday in Zephyrhills, about 30 miles northeast of Tampa. Authorities say the plane took off about 10:30 a.m. and 22 people jumped. When only 20 returned, authorities started searching for the missing men. The bodies were located about 7:30 p.m. in a wooded area south of the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport. They were found near each other. Pasco County sheriffs spokeswoman Melanie Snow would not com ment on whether their parachutes had opened, saying that was part of the investigation. The skydivers were part of a jump through Skydive City in Zephyrhills. Teacher charged with child abuse CLEARWATER A Clearwater teacher faces charges of abusing two special needs students at Skycrest Elementary School. Police arrested 44-yearold Melanie Jo Fox on Thursday. Fox is accused of pull ing a 6-year-old girls hair, kicking her, hitting her with a book and bind ing her with duct tape. Authorities also say she pushed an 8-year-old boy and used rubber bands to bind his hands. NEW YORK D ownton Abbey fans were dev astated when Matthew Crawley made his dramatic exit from the series at the end of the shows third season. The actor who played him, however, is less emo tional about the plot point. Its nice that people care, I sup pose, about the show, but yeah, you know ... I had to do what I had to do, Dan Stevens said Thursday while attending a New York recep tion to launch a two-day pop-up showcase to promote British tour ism. He does, however, recognize the phenomenon the show has become, airing in countries across the globe. Its a show that means a lot to a lot of people, and, you know, weve obviously gone into a lot of homes on a Sunday night, so people feel very close to the show, which is great, Stevens said. On Downton, the relationship between Crawley and Michelle Dockerys Lady Mary was a central storyline. Stevens left the show to pursue other opportunities, which have opened up for him. He recently starred in The Heiress on Broadway with Jessica Chastain and shot a role in an upcoming film about the founder of WikiLeaks with fellow British actor Benedict Cumberbatch. Stevens is now filming a movie in Brooklyn with Liam Neeson called A Walk Among the Tombstones. That part has required the 30-yearold to trim down a bit and darken his hair. When he was first spotted publicly last weekend at the GLAAD Awards sporting the new look, pho tos quickly spread online with chat ter about the change. Stevens seemed especially sur prised if not confused by the interest in his appearance. Really? OK, I suppose, he said. Theres so much else going on in the world. Tony Bennett excited about gig with Gaga NEW YORK They havent hit the studio yet, but Tony Bennett says he cant wait to record his next album with Lady Gaga. The 86-year-old says in an interview Thursday that he and the pop star will record a big swing album. He says we have it all worked out already on paper. Bennett and Gaga collaborated on The Lady Is a Tramp for his Grammy-winning, platinum-selling 2011 Duets II album. He called the 26-year-old a wonderful person and a great talent. Bennett released Viva Duets, a collaborative album with Latin American singers including Gloria Estefan and Marc Anthony, in October. He says he wants to work with Gaga because shes quite different. He adds that hes also impressed with Gaga as a business woman. Lawyer: No charges for Lohan in NYC assault NEW YORK New York City prosecutors will not charge Lindsay Lohan in an alleged fight at a Manhattan nightclub in November, an attor ney for the actress said Friday. Attorney Marc Heller said the Lohan faces no for mal charges after prosecutors were unable to gather sufficient evidence to prove the case. Shes totally clear and exoner ated, Heller said. She has nothing but smooth sailing ahead. A spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance declined to comment. Lohan was arrested Nov. 29 on a charge of misdemeanor assault.

is expected to hit the area this morning and possibly bring another 1-2 inches of rain. He said the squall line is expected to pass through the area from 7 11 a.m. today. Officials are urging onlookers to avoid neigh borhoods that have sus tained storm damage. If you dont live in the affected neighbor hoods, dont go there, said Commissioner Ron Williams, noting there have been early reports of loot ing for scrap metal in some neighborhoods. Sheriff Mark Hunter, who said additional depu ties will be patrolling the storm-impacted areas, also noted the sheriffs office has received calls about looters. The Florida Highway Patrol sent additional troop ers from St. Augustine and Palatka. All city workers were called to manage storm damage by City Manager Wendell Johnson. An estimated 7,000 peo ple were without power at the height of the storm. Kevin Kirby, Columbia County public works direc tor, said at the peak of the storm 60 roads were closed. However, during the eve ning briefing he estimated that 30 percent of those roads had been opened. Most of them are short roads and most are not pri mary or secondary roads, he said. We are working vigorously with an excess of 100 people on staff to open the roads up. My intentions are to continue working to open all the roads. Im not doing clean-up, Im sim ply opening the roads and removing debris. We plan to work around the clock until the roads are passable. The roads that are not passable are barricaded or ribbonedoff. Kirby said the only flood ing he has seen is in the Lake City Country Club area, off U.S. 90 west. We have pumps in place, he said. There is a small area of potential flood ing but we have pumps in place and were discharging the water. Currently, weve got it under control. First responders were at several locations around town securing downed power lines, cutting and removing trees and in one instance, helping a resident escape from his business after a tree fell on the estab lishment and trapped him inside. I was trapped in there for about 20 minutes, said Kornel Nika, who owns a car lot at 955 E. Duval St. I sounded really bad very bad. Then the smoke started and I thought I was not going to get out. Four fire trucks with fire fighters from the city and county fire departments used chainsaws and other equipment to get Nika from the business office, which is located in a house. Nika emerged from the building injury-free. They were very good in getting me out, he said. They broke the back wall. I told them to break the back wall. The tree fell on the building and when I heard the noise I ran to the back because I thought that was the safe place. I just couldnt get out. The response was won derful, said Nikas wife Jackie, as she stood in the rain barefoot and watched the firefighters work to free her husband. I called them and by the time I drove here, they were here. County officials met at the Emergency Operations Center just after 3 p.m. and unanimously adopted a res olution declaring a state of emergency in the county. The emergency resolution lasts for seven days and will allow county crews to make repairs, allow them on private property and to do other work with possible reimbursement from state officials. Kevin Kirby, Columbia County public works direc tor, attended the meeting and said there was exten sive damage on the eastside of town from Baya Avenue to the Price Creek Road area. County officials were considering opening the Richardson Community Center as a shelter for dis placed families. There are houses where the roofs are gone and peo ple are going to need a place to stay, said Williams. We are prepared to open a shelter, but right now there is no need, David Krause said, noting the American Red Cross and the Catholic Charities were informed of the situation and were help ing some families. According to prelimi nary reports, six or seven families were displaced by storm damage. There were also reports of damage to some of the countys radio towers and a report from city officials that a 10-inch water main near the Target facility on the northside of town had ruptured. Officials said the countys 911 call center had been inundated with calls report ing downed tree and power lines. The Citizens Information Center at the county EOC has been activated at level 2 since the storm passed through the area. Morgan said a line of storms that dumped three inches of rain on Live Oak in 40 minutes was heading toward Lake City. A flood advisory was issued for the county and its possible that a flood warning could be issued in the near future, he said.

TERESA The R/V Apalachee, Florida State University Coastal and Marine Labs new research vessel, is the only one of its kind in this region of the Gulf of Mexico. The custom-built, 64-foot cata maran-hulled boat was a nearly two-year project completed in January with $1.6 million of funding approved by FSU Vice President of Research Kirby Kemper. Associate Director of Research Dean Grubbs said the vessel will be a huge boon for us and really increase our research footprint in the region. Wet and dry laboratories, sedi ment coring gear and a remotelyoperated vehicle are among its features used to study the chem istry, geology and biology of the Gulf. Grubbs, a 20-year marine researcher, said the vessel fills the needs of all types of research ers in the region and at the marine lab work ranging from physical oceanography, micro-biology and research geared toward larger fish. Initial projects aboard will be aimed at BP Deepwater Horizon spill-related research. The Coastal Marine Lab, with FSU in the lead, is part of the Deep-C Consortium research group, 10 research insti tutions assessing the 2010 oil spill. Spring break crowds down Associated Press DAYTONA BEACH Some local businesses in Daytona Beach are worried they are losing much need ed revenue as spring break crowds dwindle and hun dreds of thousands of tour ists head to Panama City. Daytona Beach was a spring break haven for col lege students for years, peaking in the 1980s with MTV hosting live events there and injecting an esti mated $120 million into the local economy. But with the booming business came tragedy. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reports eight people fell off balconies, one fatally. Fights broke out and three hotels were shut down amid reports of urine, vomit and feces in the halls and stair ways. Some tourism officials felt the spring break market had high risk and limited rewards. There were many busi nesses that made a lot of money, but the (negative) impact on the community was too much, said Blaine Lansberry, who owns the Best Western Plus Aku Tiki Inn and the Bahama House.

W hen youre driving, you only get a sec-ond for your brain to record a few frames of an incident, but this was so bizarre I froze on it long enough to confirm the scene. Two men were engaged in an argument a full-blown fist fight at the corner of U.S. 90 and Marion Avenue. They were stopped in traffic and apparently one man had left his pickup and walked around the other persons vehicle to settle it. Both were stopped at the red light. The man in the car did not get out and he was stuck there as the man from the truck stood in the street and unloaded on him through the car window. Haymakers in traffic. In downtown Lake City. I was moving through a green light as I noticed this in passing, but I wanted to see what was going to happen next. I went down the block and turned around, came back and they were gone. The light had turned green for their direction, the fight was over and traffic was mov-ing as if nothing had happened. All I saw was the general scene as I drove by. I could not identify faces or any more than Im sharing here, but there were at least a half-dozen cars lined up in both lanes in close proximity to the incident that witnessed it. I thought maybe the police would be called, but apparently not. I looked in all directions as I approached the incident and if a traffic stop was made, it wasnt made within a couple blocks of the scene. I was curious about the problem behind the altercation. Was it an ongoing dispute between people who knew each other? Was it road rage among strangers? Whatever it was, it escalated into a violent act in public, with several strangers witnessing the bizarre incident. It makes me wonder about people a dispute among adults that escalates to a fist fight and several people watching it who may or may not have cared? Whats wrong with this picture?I believe our society can be upright and respectful toward one another, but it takes a little effort on the part of everyone. Civility is not too much to ask.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman G ive the Florida Senate credit for respond-ing thoughtfully to the Obamacare Medicaid expansion proposal, a marked contrast to the Houses political theatrics. Like the House, the Senate rejected the federal plan, which would have added 1 million Floridians to Medicaid. The administrations plan calls for Washington to pay all the expansions costs for the first three years and then 90 percent of the costs after that. Gov. Rick Scott, who vigorously fought the Affordable Health Care Act, agreed to back the plan after obtaining a concession that the state could drop out after three years if the expenses were excessive. But lawmakers still worried about the states longterm financial obligation. The House has simply attacked the Obama administration and ignored the larger issue of providing medical care for the uninsured. These individuals, many of them low-income workers or disabled, end up being treated in hospitals, which ultimately shifts those costs to individuals with insurance. Associated Industries of Florida, a pro-business organization, calls the situation a $1.2 billion hidden tax on Florida businesses. Unlike the House, the Senate has been working on an alternative solution, which it fleshed out this week. Republican Sen. Joe Negron of Stuart proposes a sensible strategy to use the federal funds responsibly. He would expand Healthy Kids, a successful state program that offers health care coverage to children whose parents are uninsured but dont qualify for Medicaid. Parents pay $15 to $20 a month for private health insurance, which the state subsidizes. Families are responsible for $5 to $10 co-pays on treatment. Negron would use the same approach with the new Healthy Florida. The poor not covered by Medicaid would choose a private health plan and be responsible for a modest monthly premium and co-pays. This financial involve-ment is aimed at ensuring responsible health care choices. Healthy Florida would use the federal dollars to help fund the coverage. House Speaker Will Weatherford simply wants to reject the federal dollars, a stance that will result in the money being sent to other states. His stance is doing nothing to resolve this critical issue. Florida already sends more tax dollars to Washington than it ever gets back. Its short-sighted to turn down, for political reasons, money that would aid the poor and disabled, particularly when Florida citizens and private busi-nesses will end up picking up the tab for much of their treatment. There is no guarantee Washington will agree to Negrons proposal, but federal officials and conserva-tives alike should see that this kind of public-private partnership would deliver needed services while con-trolling costs and governments role.

The caption under the small inset picture was Fishing on De Swanee Ribber. No locals gave the provincial wording a second thought. After all, that caption was a partial quote of the original line of Stephen Collins Fosters song Old Folks at Home, also known as Way Down Upon The Suwannee River, which was Floridas state song. Also, most people knew that Foster was writing the words the way he believed many rural black people in the South talked in the 1850s when he wrote the song. Then, later in time, some people came to believe Fosters language was racially offensive. They felt it showed racism toward black Americans because of the use of words like darkies. This belief prompted Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to refuse to permit Old Folks at Home to be per-formed at his inauguration in 2007. This was the first time Floridas state song had not been performed at a gubernatorial inauguration since 1935.A NEW TUNELed by revisionists Sen. Tony Hill and Rep. Ed Loman, a new state song was proposed. A controversy followed and the solution was to keep Old Folks at Home as the state song, but with some rewording, and to designate Florida (Where The Sawgrass Meets The Sky) as the state anthem. The new wording changed words like de to the, ribber to river, darkies to brothers, deres to theres, ebber to ever, and brud-der to brother. The changes were decided upon by a group of history professors at the University of Pittsburgh, Fosters home area. The merest implication that Fosters words or that the composer himself were racist would have been a shock to Foster. After all, he was from the North, spoke out for abolition of slavery, supported the North in the Civil War, and was well known for his compassion for black citizens. Stephen Collins Foster (18261864) wrote some 200 songs, many still known worldwide, but sadly, he died in poverty at the young age of 37. Regardless of any discussion of the wording of Old Folks at Home, it remains one of the best known and most beloved songs ever written and it breathes alive and well in the very soul of people who love folk music.NEW COMMUNITY CENTEROne of the best things our County Commission has ever done is to establish the various Community Centers around the county: Deep Creek, Winfield, Mason City, Lulu, and Fort White. They are all used regularly, kept in top shape, and managed by citi-zens living near the area of their community center. Now there is a new one, the Westside Community Center, locat-ed at 431 SW Birley Road, and it is a beauty. It can host a function of up to 294 people. Amenities include a full kitchen, ice machine, a large reception hall, and an outside playground for chil-dren. Reservations and/or a tour of the Center can be made by calling Lucille Coats at 386-752-5617 or Flossie McGuire at 386-752-2681.BENS IRONYFathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. And now, any of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insur-ance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Columbia Highs baseball team wasted a trip to Fort White High on Saturday. The varsity game was delayed and eventually postponed. Fort White athletic director John Wilson said the game would be rescheduled and picked up where it left off with Columbia coming to bat in the third inning. Lane Pendergrast and Harrison Shubert faced each other on the mound. Fort White led 2-1 after two innings. In the second inning, Robby Howell was hit by a pitch and Zach Gaskins By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The junior varsity baseball teams for host Fort White High and Columbia High squared off Saturday in a prelude to the varsity game. The Indians won 7-1 in their final game of the season. Columbia still has a date with Suwannee High after spring break and perhaps a couple of rain-outs to make up. Fort White scored one run in the first inning and erupted for four more in the second. The Indians added their final two runs in the fourth inning before Columbia By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Highs Keeley Murray had a difficult decision to make two years ago, but as she signed to LaGrange College on a soccer scholarship on Friday, the decision paid off. Murray was a two-sport athlete for the Lady Tigers entering her junior year, but in order to play at the next level, she had to devote herself entirely to the sport of soccer. The senior had played softball since she was 8 years old, but wasnt receiving a lot of next-level consideration on the softball field. Thats when Columbia head coach Ashley Brown convinced her to go all-in for soccer. When she made the decision to play college soccer, the thing she had to do was weigh her options, Brown said. She made a list of the positives and negatives, and decided to take a year off of softball to focus completely on playing soccer in college. She played for a travel team and hired her own keeper coach. She set her goal and was able to achieve it. For Murray, it was one of the biggest decisions of her high school career. It was very big, she said. Coach told me that if I dedicated myself to it, getting a soccer scholarship would be easy. I decided to make the switch and started receiving offers pretty quickly. Murray said the hardest part was giving up something that she loved with fear of letting down the ones she had grown so close to. It was extremely hard, she said. Its hard to give up a sport you love and to tell your teammates, because they are like fam-ily to me. To tell them that I wasnt going to play for a year was like breaking up with your boyfriend. Murray said that being a two-sport athlete, after all, had made her into the By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Highs softball team got over a hump and find themselves at the top of the mountain. The Lady Tigers beat visiting Atlantic Coast High 4-2 on Friday to win the regular-season District 4-6A championship and nail down the No. 1 seed for the district tournament. That means one of fellow top 10-ranked opponents, Atlantic Coast (13-4, 3-2) or St. Augustine High, will be eliminated when the district championship game rolls around. We finally won a close game against them, CHS head coach Jimmy Williams said. This is the first time we ever beat that pitcher (Paige Curtis). Columbia built a 3-0 lead for starter Erin Anderson before the Stingrays got on the board. Atlantic Coast closed to 3-2 with runs in the forth and sixth inning, then Keeley Murray provided some insurance when she jumped on the first pitch in the bottom of the sixth inning and hit her sec-ond home run in as many nights. The dinger capped off a 3-for-3 night for Murray that included an RBI-single in the third inning and two runs scored. Keeley was hot again tonight, Williams said. She gave us some cushion with that home run. It was the second win for Anderson in two games. She pitched 6 13 innings with seven hits, two runs, three walks and four strikeouts. Ashley Shoup relieved with one out in the seventh inning after two Stingrays walked. Shoup cleanly fielded a sacrifice bunt for the second out and first baseman Brittany Morgan gobbled up a ground ball and stepped on the base to seal the win and a save for Shoup. Erin gave all she had, Williams said. She gave 6 13 innings of championship pitching and that was 11 13 innings of pure pressure in two days. Columbias defense was sharp. Catcher Hollianne Dohrn picked off a runner at sec-ond, threw out an attempt-ed steal in the same inning and gunned down a runner trying to advance to shut down an Atlantic Coast rally in the fourth inning. Brandy Morgan made a running, diving catch in center field to rob a base hit in the fifth inning. Brandy Morgan and Murray opened the second inning with singles and both ended up stealing second base. Just when it looked like the runners would be wasted, Lauren Eaker ripped a triple to right field to drive in both runs. In the third inning, Kayli Kvistad hit a one-out dou-ble, the second of her three Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, March 24, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754email@example.com 1BSPORTS BRIEFS JV continued on 2B BASEBALL continued on 5B MURRAY continued on 5B Columbia High soccer player Keeley Murray signs to play at LaGrange College.

JV From Page 1B Tiger takes leadAssociated PressORLANDO The shot looked daunting to Tiger Woods, and so did the view from the bunker behind the eighth green at Bay Hill. Across a small lake was a large score-board that showed Justin Rose off to such a hot start that Woods was five shots behind and trying not to lose ground. Two shots and two putts changed everything Saturday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Woods hit what he called his best shot of the third round, a 6-iron from 196 yards that settled 12 feet below the hole on No. 15 to set up a birdie. Minutes later, he hit another 6-iron from 183 yards to 20 feet and slammed his fist toward the hole when he made eagle, his third in as three days. Just like that, Woods was atop the leaderboard, a familiar spot for him on this golf course. He finished off his round of 6-under 66 with two pars, and when Rose lost ener-gy and stumbled over the final hour, Woods had a two-shot lead. Thats a daunting view for those chasing him. Woods is 41-2 on the PGA Tour when he has the outright lead going into the final round. Woods was at 11-under 205, two shots ahead of Rickie Fowler (67), John Huh (71) and Rose. sports sunday 1-2-5B 3/24 2 3/23/13 10:42:26 PM

I think being both a soccer and softball player has allowed me to become a good all-around athlete, Murray said. I play with my heart and play for my teammates. But after signing a scholarship the hard work paid off, lifting a burden for Murray. It was a big relief, she said. It was like someone took 1,000 pounds off my back and now I can play softball again without the pressure of trying to find a college scholarship. Murray is a four-time Academic Award winner, a Young Gun Award winner, Defensive MVP and overall MVP for the Lady Tigers. Its a testament to her dedication and hard work, Brown said. Shes an out-standing student athlete and trained really hard to do what she needed to do. She is an outstanding lead-er. On the womens side of the game, you rarely see a goalkeeper thats solid in every area. She can come out of the box and attack and has great hands. Brown went as far as to call Murray a coachs dream. For an opportunity to coach a student athlete like Keeley is special, Brown said. Shes a great per-son overall and a beautiful young woman who is pas-sionate about her family, school and soccer. Shes been a great leader and our team will have big shoes to fill. Murray acknowledged that while she possessed these qualities, it was a testament to those around her. I couldnt have done it without my parents and all the people that were there to support me, Murray said. People believed in me from my coaches to my teammates. walked one out later.

1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter 1CBIZ FRONT Week of March 24-30, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc. Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County 1CColumbia Inc. By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org F lorida Sheriffs Youth Ranches provide child care services for thousands of children across the state. Many of the children need a safe and secure home, while others may need structure and specialized education, because they are tee tering on the brink of trouble. As a nonprofit child care orga nization, Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches allows a select number of the children to reside at one of its campuses to help them develop a sense of direction, abil ity and hope. Currently, four Columbia County children, two boys and two girls, are receiving Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch services. The county sheriffs office has organized a fundraiser to help the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches raise money to handle the day-to-day expenses of oper ating the facilities. The Second Annual BowlA-Thon and Community Fish Fry for Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at the Lake City Bowl. Pre-registration for the event is required. The first event is the bowla-thon and the second event (community fish fry) will begin at 4 p.m. at the Columbia County Fairgrounds entertainment building, said Sarah Wheeler, Columbia County Sheriffs Office records supervisor. The fish fry is free to the public, but donations will be accepted. Event organizers are trying to assemble at least 16 teams for the bowl-a-thon. Each team will have three people and the fourth member of the team will be a child from the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch. There is no registration fee, but teams are asked to have a sponsorship, Wheeler said. The fee that teams have to pay is $7.50, which includes two games of bowling and shoe rental. Wheeler said event organizers are asking for teams to get spon sorships from their neighbors, family, friends, co-workers, busi nesses, community leaders and churches. The money then will go back to the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranches for them to have programs for the children, she said. Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches are run strictly on dona tions. There are seven Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. Of those, two are for boys in Live Oak and Bradenton; a campus for girls is in Bartow; and the Safety Harbor site is a co-ed campus for siblings, which accepts children as young as 3 years old; and two youth camps in Yankeetown and Barberville. Last year the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches served 332 chil dren in their 24-hour, 7-day-aweek residential care program. The program also served 6,869 children through summer camp ing programs.

She said the proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward supporting children at the youth ranches and will be used to pay daily expenses for caring for kids such as utility bills and food costs. The new twist for this years fundraiser is the addition of the community fish fry. The community fish fry will feature a silent auction, door prizes and a cake auc-tion. The reason for the fish fry is to bring the commu-nity together for awareness for the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches and bring an old-time family atmo-sphere back to Columbia County, Wheeler said. The bowl-a-thon last year really touched the lives of our employees more than people realize. Its always been something that weve done, but there were six kids that were left behind at Christmas, and the employees of the sheriffs office and some businesses stepped up and we bought Christmas for those kids within a week. If we didnt have the bowl-a-thon, we wouldnt have known there was a need for that. For additional information about the fundraiser, contact Wheeler at 752-9212. Jobless claims at 5-year lowBy CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABERAP Economics WriterWASHINGTON The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment aid barely changed last week, while the average over the past month fell to a fresh five-year low. The decline in layoffs is helping strength-en the job market. Weekly unemployment benefit applications rose just 2,000 to a seasonally adjusted 336,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. Over the past four weeks, the average number of applications has dropped by 7,500 to 339,750. Thats the lowest since February 2008, just three months into the recession. Separately, sales of previously occupied homes rose last month to their highest level in more than three years, the National Association of Realtors said Thursday. And a mea-sure of future U.S. eco-nomic growth increased in February for the third straight month, according to the Conference Board, a business research group. The three reports Thursday supported other recent data that show the economy is improving after stalling at the end of last year. Economists pay close attention to the four-week average of applications because it can smooth out week to week fluctua-tions. The steady decline in unemployment claims sig-nals that companies are lay-ing off fewer workers. That suggests many arent wor-ried about economic condi-tions in the near future. FAA to close 149 air traffic towers due to budget cuts By JASON KEYSERAssociated PressCHICAGO Under orders to trim hundreds of millions of dollars from its budget, the Federal Aviation Administration released a final list Friday of 149 air traffic control towers that it will close at small airports around the country starting early next month. The closures will not force the shutdown of any of those airports, but pilots will be left to coordi-nate takeoffs and landings among themselves over a shared radio frequency with no help from ground controllers. All pilots are trained to fly using those procedures. The plan has raised concerns since a prelimi-nary list of facilities was released a month ago. Those worries include the impact on safety and the potential financial effect on communities that rely on airports to help attract businesses and tourists. We will work with the airports and the opera-tors to ensure the pro-cedures are in place to maintain the high level of safety at non-towered air-ports, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said in a statement. The FAA is being forced to trim $637 million for the rest of the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. The agency said it had no choice but to subject most of its 47,000 employees, including tower controllers, to peri-odic furloughs and to close air traffic facilities at small airports with lighter traf-fic. The changes are part of the across-the-board spending cuts known as sequestration, which went into effect March 1. The airports targeted for tower shutdowns have fewer than 150,000 total flight operations per year. Of those, fewer than 10,000 are commercial flights by passenger airlines. Airport directors, pilots and others in the aviation sector have argued that stripping away an extra layer of safety during the most critical stages of flight will elevate risks and at the very least slow years of progress that made the U.S. aviation network the safest in the world. Airlines have yet to say whether they will continue offering service to airports that lose tower staff. The 149 air traffic facilities slated to begin closing on April 7 are all staffed by contract employees who are not FAA staff-ers. There were 65 other facilities staffed by FAA employees on the prelim-inary list of towers that could be closed. A final decision on their closure will require further review, the FAA said. The agency is also still considering elimi-nating overnight shifts at 72 air traffic facilities, including some at major airports like Chicagos Midway International and General Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee. There was no word Friday on when a decision will come. Hundreds of small airports around the country routinely operate without controllers. Pilots are trained to watch for other aircraft and announce their posi-tion over the radio during approaches, landings and takeoffs. But the overall air systems safety is built on redundancy, and taking away the controllers extra set of eyes is like removing stop signs or traffic lights from city intersections and forcing drivers to be more vigilant and cautious, says Paul Rinaldi, president of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. Thats what the pilot is going to have to do now, said Rinaldi, whose group represents nearly 15,000 FAA-employed controllers as well as some staff at privately run contract tow-ers that were the subject of Fridays announcement. A pilot is now going to have that extra duty of making sure that every-body seems to be doing the right thing on a crowd-ed frequency, he said. And pilots will have to do that on top of flying the airplane or maneuvering it on the ground, which is not an easy thing to do, Rinaldi added. Its not like driving a car. Some aviation experts say the elimination of over-night shifts should have been carried out regardless of the sequester at facilities that dont see enough traf-fic to justify the expense of staffing towers. The budget cuts being forced on the FAA could provide the agency with political cover to make some of those changes.

LIFE Sunday, March 24, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D W e headed into Brooklyn, via the Manhattan Bridge. Scott and I were on a bus on the Brooklyn Pizza Tour and it was 2008. The first area we went to was Dumbo. This means Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Our first stop was the Brooklyn Bridge Park, where we walked into the park to get some pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline. Next stop, Grimaldis. This is a little hole-in-the-wall pizza place thats been in business forever. It was the first pizza place to open here, and used to be called Patsys. Grimaldis serves Neapolitan style pizza thin crust, round pies. We ate a couple of slices of margarita pizza. The crust was just right thin and crispy. They cook their pizzas in a coal-heated brick oven. An interesting thing about this place was the line outside to get in. The line can be more than an hour long in the sum-mertime. We had tables reserved for the tour. Our guide, Tony, said we didnt have to wait, because he knew people and that was how they did things in Brooklyn. From there, we headed into Bay Ridge. This is a residential area, with row houses not brown-stones, but limestones and brick and many other styles. Some are mansions worth millions. Then we drove through the Benson Hurst and Bath Beach areas. Theres a lot of his-tory here. There are over 80 languages spoken in Brooklyn, with 2.5 million people living there. One of the fun parts of the tour was that as wed pass areas that have been in movies, wed get to watch those clips simulta-neously from the films on the TV monitors in the bus. We saw the street where John Travolta walked in the beginning of the film, Saturday Night Fever and where Al Pacino drives the Ferrari in Scent of a Woman. Very cool! Our next stop was L&B Spumoni Gardens. This is a family run restaurant thats been in business for over 60 years. Their specialty is the Sicilian style pizza pie, cut in rectangular slices. They also had outdoor seat-ing and a walk-up take-out window with Spumoni. Back on the bus and out to Coney Island! Yeah, I was looking most forward to this because Ive always wanted to go to the board-walk there. We passed by the first and original Nathans Hot Dogs (where they have the hot dog eating Great NYC pizza tour Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754email@example.com Lake City Reporter1DLIFET he hobby, or art, of attract-ing butterflies to the garden is very rewarding, particularly in Florida. There are at least 180 spe-cies of butterflies found in Florida, and 40 of those are found primarily within our borders. The enjoy-ment of watching a beauti-ful garden still life scene come to life with the activ-ity of fluttering butterflies is enough to move you from hobbyist to artist. The gentle insect performs the function of pol-lination as it flits from flow-er to flower, sipping the nectar through its tube-like proboscis. Butterflies feed from many different flowers that attract them with the promise of nectar. A flower may be allur-ing with vibrant colors, large petals for landing, or fragrances that tell the insects that their nectar is plentiful. Females of each species of butterflies will only lay eggs on very select host plants. Here the eggs will hatch into hungry caterpil-lars that can practically consume the entire host plant. Soon the caterpillar forms a chrysalis in which it magically morphs into the adult butterfly. Its so much fun to watch the progression of eggs, caterpillars, and chrysalises on the indi-vidual host plants. But what if there isnt room in the garden to grow both the host and the nectar plants? Perhaps a specific butterfly host plant, like an oak or hickory tree, just doesnt fit into your small flower garden. Take an inventory of the plants that are already growing in your landscape or in your immediate neighborhood. Then do some research to see if any of your nearby plants are known host plants that produce broods of possible garden visitors. A good variety of colorful nectar plants may be just whats needed to keep the butter-flies happily dining right in their own neighborhood, your backyard. Silver-spotted Skippers and Long-tailed Skippers both lay eggs on wisteria and beggarweeds. If you have peppergrass weeds around, youll probably attract Cabbage Whites and Checkered Whites. Sicklepod and coffee senna weeds are hosts for the pretty Cloudless Sulphur and Sleepy Orange. If there is a wild cherry tree or a white ash around, you just may be visited by the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. And if you have mistle-toe in your trees, you should see Great Purple Hairstreaks. Join Judy Futch and Helen Whitley, avid local butterfly gardeners, as they make their presenta-tion, Gardening for Busy Butterflies, at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Columbia County Extension Office on the Columbia County Fairgrounds. See the live chrysalises and learn how to attract and foster several favorite Florida butterflies. Take home some FREE nectar plants to help you get started on your own but-terfly garden. Everyone is welcome to this free workshop. By CHRSTOPHER SHUMAKERSpecial to the ReporterD evoted for 63 years to helping others here in Columbia County, Edith Purser Vass has made a difference for many in this com-munity ever since she and her late husband, Palmer Purser, moved to Lake City in 1951 and purchased Desoto Drug Store from R.A. George. Whether it has been through the friendly approach she offered the customers she serviced as a local pharmacist for 44 years or through the countless organizations she has chaired and served with in the community, all Purser Vass said she wanted was to make Columbia County a better place to live. But now, she is saying goodbye to this community she has called home for six decades. Purser Vass and her second hus-band, Ted, are moving to Central Florida on Easter. She said, at 86, its time she is closer to her children. The couple of 22 years will be moving to Celebration, a small community in Osceola County. Im trying to be positive about the change that is taking place, Purser Vass said. Its going to be a blessing to be close to my chil-dren. She is going to miss all of her good friends once she leaves, she said. Through the years, getting to know the people here in Columbia County was something she enjoyed, especially as a pharmacist. You really felt like you were being a part of every family that came in there, Purser Vass said, referring to the drug stores she owned. You touched their lives and they touched yours. She said she and her late husband enjoyed owning Desoto Drug Store for 30 years. They sold the store on Main Street to R.A. Houston in the early 1980s.

One of the best and worst ideas, all at the same time. As a person looking at the big picture, I can see that it would cut out things like bullying because of what people wear, for the simple reason that everyone would be wearing the same clothes. Also, it might make the school look more puttogether. However, as a teenager, I would feel that my self-expression was being taken away. As I am going into high school, I cant wait to be able to dye my hair any color I want and not get sent home for it. I just want self-expression, after all. Part of expressing me is expressing me through my clothes, though. My style is jeans and a cute shirt or a T-shirt. Not khakis and polos. Plus, my mom would have to buy extra clothes! I wouldnt be able to wear the clothes I wear on regular days to school, and lets all just face it, no one wants to wear a school uniform to anywhere but school. Madison I think all schools should have school uniforms because it will keep students focused on their grades. Students will not be thinking what am I going to wear tomorrow. Instead, they will know, and they will be focused on their school work instead. A lot of schools who use school uniforms have nicely dressed students and their grades are better. Wearing school uniforms doesnt mean the stu dents have to dress funny. There are a lot of choices out there. Some schools have expensive school uniforms, but, if we try to keep it simple, the cost will be lower. Sometimes, fashion and fad combined with peer pressure can lead to some families spending money that they cannot afford, and school uniforms can resolve this issue. Another reason for wearing school uniforms is you can identify an intrud er at school. Uniforms can help stop or identify gang activity, so everyone is safe and happy. Kayla S chool uniforms, much talked about topic. To tell you the truth I hate the idea with every fiber in my body. I am one of those people that dont like the thought of being told what to do. Hey! What teenager likes being told what to do? All it would do is make our parents buy more clothes. And take away our free dom of expression. People make friends based on their clothes. If you have a Lady Gaga shirt on and I hate Lady Gaga Im prob ably not going to like you. Im telling you now that a single look for every one is not going to flatter everyones body type. This is most certainly going to start more bullying. I could argue with you for hours on how school uni forms are a horrible idea but thats just my opinion. Cathleen M ost kids would not vote for school uniforms if they had a choice. Me? I would. How they would be beneficial to me is I would not have to choose what I wear in the mornings and it would limit the peer pressure to dress in name brands. School uniforms dont always totally limit what kids can wear, but they definitely help with the dress code problems. Kids today find ways to sneak around the dress code, and the ones who follow it are kind of mad because they dont get in trouble. If we had school uniforms it would be easy to find kids on field trips and keep track of them. Schools could stop doing dress code checks. It would just be easier for everyone. Parents on their way to work are more likely to notice when their children arent wearing their uniform than if their childs shorts or skirt are the right length. It would also stop the tons of kids sent to ISS or home because they dont meet the dress code, as well as the peer pressure to wear the expensive name brands. Stevens-Foote engagement Brant and Jerri Stevens of Lake City announce the engagement and pending marriage of their daughter, Jamie Alexis Stevens, to Shayne Foote of Lake City.

VASS: Longtime druggist says goodbye Continued From Page 1D The two also owned Pursers Pharmacy in what is now Beef OBradys back in 1961. They closed that location in 1980. They really enjoyed get ting to know their custom ers names, something not found in the larger chain pharmacies many people use today, Purser Vass said. Pharmacy work was much different when she and Purser moved to Lake City. Purser Vass remem bers having to compound medications. She mixed lotions and capsules and made suppositories daily. She admitted owning one of the popular afterschool hangouts for a few decades was quite fun. She said she really enjoyed getting to know the locals who came to shop or to enjoy a milk shake. It [Desoto Drug Store] makes me realize what a wonderful small town it is, and I used to, everywhere I went, Id know people, Purser Vass said. I still have good friends here now, that I met when I was t10 or 12 years old. Purser Vass believes she and her twin sister, Mary, may have been the first female pharmacists in Lake City. A recogni tion she shied away from when mentioned. She still acknowledged she was proud to be a pharma cist who could share her knowledge with her cus tomers and friends. At some point, she real ized she needed more in life, her own identity. She wanted to be more than a mother and pharmacist and needed something in her life that was just for her, she said. I was not the woman who said, Oh, Ive just got to have children, and Ive got to be with them all the time, she said. There was more to life for me than just rearing children, as important as that is. She began getting out into the community and has served in a number of capacities. Shes volun teered her time, so she could make the lives of others better, she said. Purser Vass helped raise the funds to bring hospice care to the coun ty, and in 1975, she was chosen Columbia Countys Woman of the Year. She has been an active member of many civic clubs and served as presi dent of Happy House, Inc. She was on the Lake City Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for three years and served nine years on the North Florida Mental Health Center board. Purser Vass seemed most proud of the work she has done for First Presbyterian Church. Elected the first president of Women of the Church in 1968 and ordained as its first woman elder in 1974, she said, she enjoys her time serving the Lord. She admitted getting overwhelmed at times and doubting her own abili ties to tackle projects. She always turned to God for her strength, she said. Purser Vass was still hard at work giving her time to the Christian Service Center of Columbia County until two months ago. Volunteering with them and serving her church have been her main priorities lately, she said. Looking back though, buying Desoto Drug Store was a great move, Purser Vass said. It was a place we could work hard, she said, and yet develop relation ships and friends that you couldnt have really, I think, in a big city. Even though the city has grown, she still believes this is a commu nity that cares. She hopes to get back and visit her friends and the city from time to time. I really have been blessed to be a part of this community, Purser Vass said.
By SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES A fluffy duckling might seem appealing next to a basket of Easter eggs, but shel-ter officials and animal welfare experts want gift-happy parents to picture something else: Poop. The average domestic duck relieves itself once every 15 minutes, accord-ing to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Thats why very few people have ducks for pets except at Easter. Yet millions of people have or will celebrate spring and Easter by get-ting their children a duck-ling, figuring they can release it in a pond when it gets too big to keep. We usually get tons of calls right after Easter, said Susie Coston, nation-al shelter director for the Farm Sanctuary. Duck diapers are readily available online, but it takes more than that to raise a duck, said Carol Chrysong, the 56-year-old founder of The Lucky Duck Rescue & Sanctuary in Los Angeles. The sanctuary is home to 120 of them, including a drake and two hens that Chrysong keeps as her pets, and the cleanup is exhausting, she said. I do a massive amount of work every day before and after work. I am pret-ty exhausted, Chrysong said. The upsides to keeping a duck as a pet include their surprisingly doglike behavior, which has them greeting owners upon arrival (Muscovy ducks even wag their tails). By ALISON LADMANAssociated PressHow do you make pound cake even more buttery and delicious? Easy! Pan-sear slices of it with butter and sugar. If you know how to make a grilled cheese, you can make this des-sert, which is a perfect ending to an Easter or any springtime dinner. Pan-seared pound cake is deca-dent and rich, so weve paired it with a fresh, minty fruit salad for bal-ance. Looking for even more indulgence? Top the whole thing with whipped cream spiked with powdered sugar and orange liqueur. Looking for a little less indulgence? Opt for banana bread instead of pound cake and top the fruit salad with a dollop of nonfat Greek yogurt.PAN-SEARED POUND CAKE WITH MINTY FRUIT SALAD Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 8Ingredients:2 tablespoons sugar, divided 3 navel oranges, peeled and segmented 1 cup blueberries1 cup raspberries 1 cup quartered strawberries 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint 8 thick slices purchased or homemade pound cake 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softenedInstructions:In a medium bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the sugar with the orange segments, blue-berries, raspberries, strawberries, lemon juice and mint. Stir gen-tly, then set aside. Spread both sides of each slice of the pound cake with a bit of the butter, lightly coating the surface. Use the remaining tablespoon of sugar to sprinkle over both sides of each slice. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium. Working in batches, toast the cake slices for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden and caramelized. Serve warm and topped with the fruit salad.

This board-walk was the one that inspired the song Under the Boardwalk. however, you cant get under the boardwalk now. Apparently too many unsavory things were happening, so the city had sand brought in to fill up underneath it. We walked down to Astroland, one of the three amusement parks still at Coney Island. The Cyclone is the oldest wooden roller coaster still in operation today. It was the most rick-ety, rough ride Ive ever been on, but had to do it checking more things off my bucket list. Of course Scott didnt ride. That was our last stop and on the way back into Manhattan, Tony showed us a tribute film to all of the famous people from Brooklyn. It was fun doing something new and see-ing a whole new side of New York. The coal -heated brick oven, thin-crust pizza was my favor-ite. Well worth the price of the ticket and highly recommended.

And thats fine, assuming you want to play it safe. We decided to flip things around. Actually, we didnt so much as flip the dish as turn it inside out. Rather than relegate the mint to a condiment added at the table, we used it to cre-ate a vibrant pesto, which we then stuffed in a leg of lamb so it could infuse the meat with flavor during roasting. And to stand in for the sweet and sour flavors of the mint sauce, we braised red cabbage right under the lamb. The result is an intensely meaty, flavorful accompaniment. If you still want a minty sauce, the reserved pesto can be thinned with olive oil, then drizzled over each serving. The whole roast can be prepped ahead of time, then refrigerated overnight. The day of the dinner, just pop the whole roasting pan in the oven and youre good to go. If your cabbage or lamb begins to overbrown during roasting, just tent the pan with foil.ORANGE AND MINT-STUFFED LAMB WITH SWEET-AND-SOUR CABBAGE Start to finish: 4 1/2 hours (1 hour active) Servings: 8Ingredients:1 small head red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced 1/2 cup red wine2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1/4 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes SaltZest and juice of 2 oranges 1 bunch fresh mint, leaves only 1 tablespoon olive oil1/2 cup grated manchego cheese 1/2 cup toasted cashews Ground black pepper3 1/2-pound boneless leg of lamb 3 slices stale or crusty bread 2 tablespoons Dijon mustardInstructions:Heat the oven to 300 F.In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage, onion, red wine, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Spread the mixture evenly over the bottom of a roasting pan large enough to fit the leg of lamb. Set aside. To make the pesto, in a processor, combine the orange zest and juice, the mint, olive oil, cheese, cashews, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Process until completely blended, then reserve 1/2 cup. Place the leg of lamb on a cutting board. Starting on a long side, cut the meat in half horizontally, but do not cut all the way through. Leave about 1 inch of meat uncut at the other side. Open the meat like a book, then place a piece of plastic wrap over it. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to pound the meat to an even thickness of about 2 inches. Season the meat all over with salt and pepper. Spread the pesto over the cut side of the meat. Starting at one of the long sides, roll the lamb into a log with the pesto in the center. Use kitchen twine to tie the lamb in several spots to prevent it from unrolling. Place the lamb over the cabbage mixture in the roasting pan. Set aside. In a food processor, pulse the bread until it is reduced to soft crumbs. Stir in the mustard, then pat the mix-ture over the outside of the lamb. Roast for 3 1/2 hours, or until the meat is fork-ten-der. Allow the lamb to rest for 15 minutes, then slice it across the roll. Serve alongside the braised cab-bage from the bottom of the pan and the reserved mint pesto.

DEAR ABBY: My best friend of more than 12 years -the pastor of a large church -was sent to prison several months ago for soliciting sex with two minor children. While I despise what he did, I have enough intimate knowledge to know this was a one-time thing. Hes a sex addict and, while this does not for-give the act, it was just an escalation of his addiction. I have decided to forgive him and be supportive. I send him a small amount of money each week and provide emotional support. My problem is, I knew about his addiction for 11 of the 12 years we have known each other. I feel I could have prevented all this from happening if I had told others, intervened and helped him get treat-ment. How do I apologize to all of those who loved and supported him, not knowing he wasnt celibate? -THE GUILTY ENABLER DEAR ENABLER: Excuse me? Just an escalation of the mans sex addiction? The mans lack of character is appall-ing. That you would turn a blind eye to what he was doing indicates that you have issues of your own that need resolving. Forget about apologizing. You cant make this better. Whats done is done. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend was raised in a fam-ily that didnt celebrate holidays, including birth-days. They converted to that religion when he was 10, and while he no longer identifies with that reli-gion, he still doesnt recog-nize any celebrations. I was raised with all the traditions surrounding the holidays and the family time that comes with it. I feel they are very impor-tant. I have tried explain-ing this to him, but his attitude toward holidays borders on hatred. Would it be unfair to ask him to compromise and share certain traditions with me, in light of the fact that he has no family tradi-tions to bring to the table? -NO HAPPY BIRTHDAYS DEAR NO HAPPY BIRTHDAYS: You could ask him to compromise, but it would be unrealistic to expect that someone with his ingrained attitude will do so. A fish and a bird may love each other, but it doesnt mean they can hap-pily cohabit. If you want a happy relationship, find someone whose traditions more closely resemble your own. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Im an almost 18-year-old girl. I hoped that by now I would be over my fear of the dark, but Im not. I cant sleep without the TV, go outside after dark or walk through my house at night without being terrified. I always feel as if there is something there, no mat-ter how many times I shine a light to check. Im pretty sure this is irrational, but I dont know what to do. -SCAREDY-CAT IN FLORIDA DEAR SCAREDY-CAT: When someone has an irrational fear, the thing to do is to consult a licensed psychotherapist and discuss it. There are counselors who specialize in phobias, and your physi-cian may be able to refer you to one. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont let anyone stand in the way of an opportu-nity. Someone from your past will make an offer. An emotional matter will turn in your favor.

Strength and courage will separate you from some-one unpredictable and impulsive. Stick to what you know and have your facts ready. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look for adventure and you will make new friends. A change in the way you live will ease the stress you have put up with in the past. Call the shots and make your move. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont believe every-thing you hear.

The changes you make at home will enhance your love life, but you must do them on a budget that wont add to your stress. Networking will lead to a proposal and future oppor-tunities. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Entertain if you like, but dont let anyone take advantage of you. You are best to share costs no matter how guilty someone makes you feel. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Refrain from shar-ing your thoughts. The less others know about you, the easier it will be to avoid responsibilities that you dont have time for. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): You can make positive changes that will help you achieve your personal and financial goals. Love and romance will keep you busy and play into the decisions you make regarding your future and your livelihood. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to the truth and be precise in the way you phrase what you want. A budget will be required when dealing with joint ventures. A problem with medical, contractual or emotional matters must not be allowed to fester or cost you financially. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Polite response to 7KDQN\RX &ODVVLFYHUVHWKDW EHJLQV$KEURNHQLVWKHJROGHQERZO .DINDRU/LV]W:ULWWHQMXVWLILFDWLRQ3DUWRID GRXEOHKHDGHU (VWKHURI*RRG 7LPHV 7HQQLVFOLQLF IRFXVLQJRQGURSVKRWVNLOOV" 0RUHFRPSHWHQW+DXQWHGKRXVH VRXQG ,WVD:RQGHUIXO /LIHFDEGULYHU 0HWHUUHDGHU"$UFKLWHFW6DDULQHQ'RQWJHWDOO ZRUNHGXS
By SAMANTHA CRITCHELL AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK It seems an unpopular position in college basketball is fash ion forward. The neon-colored jer seys and camouflage-cov ered shorts debuted by six teams in their postseason conference championships ahead of the NCAA mens basketball tournaments werent well received in the press or social media, with critics particularly targeting UCLA, Kansas and Notre Dame because of the schools traditionrich athletic histories. Louisville, Cincinnati and Baylor also got uniform makeovers from Adidas, and they didnt go over so well, either. They were called Underoos, Fruit Stripes and LMFAO costumes. Some people just called them ugly and you can search for them online that way. The changes happened to be in line with fashion runways and recreational athleticwear, where high lighter brights and creative camo have been bona fide trends. And alternate uni forms have become part of the college football and basketball landscape but these uniforms still made some fans cringe. What is distracting is all the patterns, said Sam Gordon, a Johns Hopkins student and big NCAA bas ketball fan. It could take the crowds focus away from a players jump shot to what they are wearing. Jeff Halmos, half of the menswear designer duo Shipley & Halmos, called the uniforms ultra-for ward but that may not be a compliment. I was so shocked at UCLA. If I was part of a storied franchise like that, Id say, Absolutely not. I would tell my team that its an honor to wear this traditional jersey, and I wouldnt cheapen it, he said. Theres a threshold to which innovation cross es a boundary. The throw back era when classic uniforms had a mainstream moment a few years ago that was so much better. To me, theres so much in menswear thats about heritage. Even President Barack Obama felt compelled to weigh in. In going through his bracket with ESPN, he cited the uniforms as a rea son Notre Dame shouldnt go any further than the second round, saying that neon glow wasnt working for me. If the goal was buzz, though, thats certainly been accomplished. And maybe these limited-edition uniforms werent created for most of the armchair or barstool fans. They could be a recruiting tool for next-gen talent, said Will Welch, senior editor of GQ magazine. Theres something gim micky about them, but out landish choices like this can end up defining an era, said Welch. Theyre pretty shocking now, but Im an adult fan, and thats different than being a 12year-old kid dying to grow up and play at Kansas or Louisville. ... Theres a good chance that these kids love the idea of debuting some thing thats exciting. Sports fans are quick to get behind fashion trends that help show support of their favorite teams and players, he said. How many people wore dorky glasses with no lenses to games and even their offices after the NBAs Russell Westbrook did? Among the less popular innovations in the new uni forms were short sleeves on jerseys for UCLA, Baylor and Louisville something Adidas also introduced this year for the NBAs Golden State Warriors. But guess who likes the sleeves? Louisville guard Peyton Siva, the Big East tournaments MVP two years in a row. Last week, after Louisvilles win over Notre Dame, he said, I think everybody shot a lot better today with the sleeves. He also wanted to take home the shorts, and gave a compliment to Notre Dames uniforms, too. I thought they were pretty awesome. Other peo ple might not like them because theyre different, but I love them. Several players inter viewed by The Associated Press cheered the uniforms and sports being sports, those who won while wear ing the uniforms seemed to like them more. I could see the uniforms becoming a good-luck charm, said Gordon. Josh Reis, a sopho more at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, prefers classic jerseys for postseason play but wouldnt mind if these radioactive uniforms became the norm for spe cial occasion games, such as a charity event. He fig ures it probably depends on the school both its tradition and its team colors. 6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MARCH 24, 2013 6DLIFE Learning that you or someone you love has cancer can be a frightening experience.
