By ROBERT BRIDGESrbridges@lakecityreporter.comLake City Police Department now says the $20,000 jewelry heist reported Friday at a local hotel may not have occurred there after all. The victim, an Indiana woman, stayed in hotels in three different states during her trip and does not know when the jewelry went missing, according to informa-tion released Tuesday by LCPD. The woman, Janice Mildred Cox, 73, of Fort Wayne, Ind., win-ters in Florida, according to Lt. Clint Van Bennekom. She traveled to Maryland for a funeral earlier this month and stayed in hotels in West Virginia and North Carolina as well as Lake City dur-ing her trip. She made police reports in all three states, according to Van Bennekom. On Wednesday, the owner of the Hampton Inn and Suites, where Cox stayed in Lake City on March 12, said an electronic audit revealed that only the key card issued to Cox had been used to enter her room. City police originally withheld basic facts of the case, releasing only the name of the alleged vic-tim, a list of the items allegedly stolen, the date of the alleged theft and the hotel at which it was said to have occurred. In an email Wednesday to Lake City Reporter staff writer Derek Gilliam, who wrote Tuesdays story, LCPD Officer Craig Strickland called the newspapers account, published Tuesday, incorrect. The [police] report clearly states that the victim stayed at three different hotels during her journey from Indiana, Strickland wrote.

Fire hoses tested By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comSUWANNEE COUNTY A Luraville man faces charges of second-degree mur-der after allegedly stabbing his mother to death on Monday. According to Suwannee County Sheriffs Office, Kenneth Hooker, 44, stabbed his mother, Rose Lawson, in the chest with a small fold-ing knife but did not call for medical assis-tance. Lawson died as a result of her wound. Police responded to the house as a result of a concerned call from Hookers sister, the sheriffs report said. Hooker informed the responding officer that he stabbed his mother during an argument because he wanted her to listen to him. Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron said this wasnt the first time his deputies had been called to the resi-dence shared by Hooker and his mother. Theres just constant arguing and bickering between him and her, Cameron said. When officers arrived, Hooker was very, very much under the influ-ence of alcohol and didnt appear to be remorseful, Cameron said.

Panel OKsbill to let teachers be armedBy KELLI KENNEDYAssociated PressMIAMI Public and private school principals could designate teachers and other school employees who would carry concealed weapons on cam-pus at all times in an effort to make schools safer, under legislation that won approval Wednesday from a state House committee. It gives principals the option to designate one or several school employees to carry concealed weapons. The designee would be required to complete the same training that bank and courthouse secu-rity guards complete in addition to the statewide firearms training. Principals could also decline the concealed weap-ons option altogether. Proponents of the bill argued that since the state cant afford to put a school resource officer on every cam-pus, the gun legislation is a common-sense alternative. But several lawmakers expressed reservations about placing more guns on school campuses.

AROUND FLORIDA Fired trooper wants back on job TALLAHASSEE, A Florida Highway Patrol trooper is trying to get his job back after being fired for giving a speeding law-maker a break. Trooper Charles Swindle says he was dis-missed despite a rec-ommendation letter from his immediate supervisor following what many troopers say has long been a practice of giving speed-ing legislators a break when possible. Swindle gave state Rep. Charles McBurney a $10 ticket in November for not having his insurance card instead of a more costly speeding fine. Although McBurney was clocked at 87, he complained that his cruise control was set at 75 so Swindle checked with headquarters and was advised to cooperate with the lawmaker if possible. McBurney then went home and wrote a letter to patrol officials that led to the troopers dismissal.Abortion bills clear committee TALLAHASSEE Bills seeking to ban sexand race-selective abortions and to require that babies surviving botched abor-tions receive medical care cleared House subcom-mittees on Wednesday as the hot-button issue resur-faced during a legislative session thats been largely bereft of battles over social issues. The legislation (HB845) that drew the most push back from abortion-rights supporters would prohibit abortions motivated by the gender or race of an unborn child. Its sponsor, Rep. Charles Van Zant, said the U.S. has become a safe haven for people around the world wanting to terminate pregnancies for those reasons, but he didnt have any numbers on how many such abor-tions are done. Race-selection abortion is race-based violence and that must stop, the Keystone Heights Republican said before his bill cleared the House Criminal justice Subcommittee. The measure would require abortion providers to sign an affidavit stating they had no knowledge the procedure was being done based on the unborn childs sex or race.Bill seeks to curb revenge porn TALLAHASSEE A bill that has cleared a Florida House subcommittee would make it a crime to post nude photos on the web attached with personal identification informa-tion without the subjects consent. Rep. Tom Goodson, RTitusville, said Wednesday his bill aims to crack down on revenge porn. He says the issue was brought to his attention by the Brevard County sheriff, who told him of an increas-ing number of complaints. The measure (HB 787) would create a felony offense for the non-consen-sual posting of nude pho-tos or videos on websites along with the subjects personal identification information. The penalty would be harsher if the victim is younger than 16. The bill cleared the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee. Goodson cited a recent survey indicating one in 10 people have threatened to expose risqu photos of their ex-partners online. Petraeus apologizes for conductLOS ANGELES D avid Petraeus apologized Tuesday night to an audience of many veter-ans for the conduct that led to his resignation as head of the CIA following the disclo-sure of an extramarital affair. Needless to say, I join you keenly aware that I am regarded in a dif-ferent light now than I was a year ago, Petraeus said. I am also keenly aware that the reason for my recent journey was my own doing. So please allow me to begin my remarks this evening by reiterating how deeply I regret and apologize for the circumstances that led me to resign from the CIA and caused such pain for my family, friends and supporters. He made the comments during his first public speech after his resigna-tion, to a group of about 600 people, including many veterans at the University of Southern Californias annual ROTC dinner. The hero of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars has remained largely in seclusion since resigning. His lawyer, Robert B. Barnett, has said that Petraeus has spent much of that time with his family. Petraeus received applause and a standing ovation before he began the evenings program by cutting a cake, a task reserved for the highest rank-ing person in the room. His affair with the retired fourstar generals biographer, Paula Broadwell, was discovered during an FBI investigation into emails she sent to another woman she viewed as a rival for his attention. At the time, Petraeus told his staff he was guilty of extremely poor judgment. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours, he said. Baldwin gives $2,500 to high school chess team CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. Actor Alec Baldwin has donated $2,500 to help the chess team at Central Falls High School in Rhode Island defray the cost of traveling to a national tourna-ment next month. The city of Central Falls has made national news because of financial problems, and the news cover-age previously caught Baldwins attention. Baldwin also contributed $10,000 two years ago to the Central Falls library to help it reopen after it was forced to close because of money problems. The city emerged from bankruptcy last year. WLNE-TV reports the chess team needs $8,000 to fund the trip to the national chess tournament in Tennessee.

Fulton County Jail records show that Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, was in custody early Wednesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon. An arrest warrant was issued for the rapper after James Lettley of Fort Hood, Texas, told police Davis struck him at Harlem Nights Club on March 16.

She reported the possible theft to all three cities where she stayed along her journey. Gilliam noted the facts cited in Stricklands email had been redacted from the report masked so the information could not be seen pro-vided to the newspaper. Van Bennekom said Wednesday that local police first believed Cox was traveling from Indiana, but later determined she departed from her winter home in Florida. It is not clear where in Florida she winters. The Lake City Reporter on Wednesday made another request for a more complete version of the report from LCPD but was again denied. Under Florida law, information contained in a police report other than criminal intelligence information or criminal investigative information is a matter of public record. Nick Patel, owner of the Hampton Inn and Suites, said the hotel takes every precaution against theft and that every room has an electronic safe. Security cameras are deployed throughout the facility, he said. Overall, we are a very safe hotel, and we try to provide a safe, secure environment for all our guests, Patel said. When contacted by the Reporter on Monday, before publication of its Tuesday story, Cox declined com-ment. The newspaper also attempt-ed to contact the Hampton Inn and Suites on Monday but did not receive a return call by press time. HEIST: Police change course, provide crime details Continued From Page 1A GREER: Prison ordered Continued From Page 1Aa sentence Wednesday that was less severe than the three-and-a-half years requested by prosecu-tors. Lubet explained that was because Greer had already paid $65,000 in restitution to the party and because Greers former right-hand man, Delmar Johnson, had committed the same crimes but was not charged. Johnson had been scheduled to be pros-ecutors star witness and was granted immunity in exchange for his testi-mony. He didnt return a phone call seeking com-ment on Wednesday. I feel that this crime deserves prison, Lubet told Greer. You egre-giously violated a position of trust. After the hearing, Greer was led from the court-room in handcuffs. His attorney, Damon Chase, said Greer had entered the guilty pleas to avoid the risk of a jury convict-ing him. STABBING: Son charged with stabbing woman Continued From Page 1Asheriff was unsure if Hooker had been intoxi-cated at the time of the stabbing. The investigation revealed that Hooker made a phone call to his sister sometime after the stabbing to tell her that their mother had been dead for the past 12 hours from a supposed overdose of pills. The sister, who lives out of state, called the sheriffs office to report the incident. Deputies arrived at Hookers house at 11:01 p.m. Tuesday. They thought they were performing a wel-fare check on Lawson, not arriving at a murder scene. The responding officer spotted a shape in the win-dow and called out to see if anyone was home, Chief Deputy Ron Colvin said. Recieving no response, a SWAT team was called in. SWAT deputies discovered Hooker lying in the liv-ing room and his deceased mother in her bedroom. She had been stabbed once on the left center of her chest, Colvin said. He was unsure if Lawson would have lived if she received medical help. Officers could not deter-mine whether the body had been moved after death. Hooker was arrested without incident, Colvin said. By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man was arrested Monday after he allegedly pointed a weap-on at another vehicle while driving on U.S. 90. According to the police report, Eric Haenisch, 18, aimed a gun at Branford-resident Robert Hoag, 52, about 12:11 p.m. after the two quarreled while driv-ing. Hoag toild police that he was cut off twice by Haenischs vehicle. When their cars stopped at a red light, Hoag called Haenisch an idiot. At that time, Haenisch raised the weapon and said, Who is the idiot now? I ought to blow your head off, the report said. Hoag backed up his vehicle in an attempt to get away from Haenisch. When the light turned green, Hoag continued to follow Haenisch, despite the fact that Haenisch had decreased his speed. Haenisch was pulled over by city police on U.S. 90 nearly an hour after the incident happened. Officers searched his vehi-cle and found the handle to a firearm in the pas-senger seat. Haenisch denied pointing a weapon at Hoag, saying instead that he had simply been holding it in his hand because he didnt want it to fall between the seats. Officer Connie Hightower said in the report that. Hightower stated that the even though it was just the handle of a gun, it could be mistaken for a small handgun from a distance. Hoag told police that he was threatened with the weapons handle and was in fear of his life. A local pawn shop confirmed that Haenisch attempted to have the weapon repaired. Haenisch was arrested for aggravated assault and taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility without incident. Drivers dispute results in arrest By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comBRANFORD A woman allegedly fired a handgun at a Suwannee County sheriffs deputy then initi-ated a standoff with law enforcement at her home Tuesday. She later sur-rendered and was arrested. Janice Wilson Thomas, 49, 4347 284th St., faces a felony charge of attempted murder on a law enforce-ment officer and nine counts of aggravated assault with a firearm on a law enforcement officer. Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron said deputies responded to Thomass home when she threat-ened to kill herself. Cameron said Thomas was the only person to fire shots, but that deputies did shoot tear gas inside the home. The standoff went on for more than three hours. She did not sur-render when the tear gas was shot inside her home, but was talked into surrendering by deputies, Cameron said. Before deputies arrived, Thomass husband told a dis-patch operator that he heard a gunshot and Thomas was not responding when he called for her, according to the arrest affidavit. Deputy Chuck Tompkins arrived at the home at 4:27 p.m. Thomass husband told Tompkins his wife was locked in her bedroom. Tompkins knocked on the bedroom door and told Thomas that he was with the sheriffs office. According to the affidavit, Tompkins knocked two more times before breaking into the room by shouldering the door open. When the door gave way and Tompkins entered the room, Thomas was sit-ting cross legged on the bed and pointing a gun at me. While Tompkins ducked out of the bedroom, he heard a gunshot, the affidavit said. He then retreated outside and took cover. The affidavit says that Thomas went outside after a few minutes with the gun in her hand and told Tompkins if he didnt leave she would start shooting. When a SWAT team arrived at her home, Thomas again went outside with the gun and told them she would start shooting if they didnt leave, the affidavit said. At some point in the standoff, tear gas was shot inside the home, but she still didnt surrender. Eventually, Thomas left the home without the gun, and depu-ties ordered her to the ground. She was then arrested and booked into the Suwannee County jail in lieu of $660,000 bond. Woman charged after standoff Thomas Haenisch
M EMO TO: President Barack Obama and Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki RE: A Veterans Affairs Departments backlog battle you havent begun to fight Four years after you both famously declared war on the VAs unconscionable backlog of military veterans waiting for benefits they earned fighting our wars, there is one backlog battle you havent begun to fight. Its a battle against the VAs enemy within. The VAs own first-deciders are unintentionally under-mining the VAs backlog war. Mistakes and flawed rulings by the VAs often-inexperienced claims adjudicators are adding to the VAs huge backlog they were supposed to be reducing. Consider this shock-ing statistic: The latest annual report of the U.S. Court of Appeals of Veterans Claims shows that in the 2012 fiscal year, the appeals court upheld only a quarter of the VAs denials. The independent court found at least some problems with most of the denials of veterans claims by the VAs initial adjudicators, or by the VAs Board of Appeals. (The board is the first stop for veterans who want to appeal denials handed down by the VAs claims adjudica-tor.) The independent Court of Appeals of Veterans Claims remand-ed back into the VA Departments system some 60 percent of the cases that veterans had appealed. And those cases became, once again, a part of the VAs infa-mous growing claims backlog. Sometimes, the cases went back to the VAs Board of Veterans Appeals; other cases went back to the VAs original adjudicator. Then the whole process began anew. Heres what this means for veterans: After being forced to wait months and even years, they must begin another long-wait process. Heres what it means for the VA claims-case backlog: It is being increased, not decreased, by often-inexperienced VA adjudicators who too often fail to get it right the first time. By the end of March, 1 million veterans will be waiting for claims to be processed, according to VA statistics. Right now, everyone seems to be focused on the fact that the VA hasnt finished computer-izing its records. But even when the VA catches up with the computer age, expected in 2015, you both will find that your backlog is being undermined by bureaucratic snafus. There is nothing wrong with the process in theory. When veterans claims are rejected, they can file an appeal. The appeal works its way through the system to the VAs Board of Veterans Appeals. Sometimes the board sends the case back to the adjudicator for new consideration; sometimes the board agrees with the initial denial. Then the veteran can take the case outside the VA, to the indepen-dent Court of Appeals of Veterans Claims. That court concluded that a mere 24 percent of appeals were rightly denied by VA adjudicators and the board. Clearly, the VA system would be much more efficient if its first adju-dicators got it right the first time. Or if at least the board of appeals got it right the first time, after the adjudicators didnt. Mr. President and Gen. Shinseki, why do you still tolerate a VA claims-adjudication system that works so poorly? After all, those problems are nothing new. I highlighted a number of them in my 2008 book, Vets Under Siege. I reported and reviewed dozens of outrageous decisions in which VA adjudicators denied or delayed claims that veterans had clearly earned. Why does it happen? I came up with two explanations that remain valid and unresolved today: -The Development of an Adversarial VA Mindset. While the VA has thousands of excellent work-ers, a mindset has spread among some in the VA. Some who decide veterans claims see themselves as adversaries, certainly not advocates. They become preoccupied with detecting and blocking veterans false claims, not helping veterans get all the benefits they earned by serving America. -The Rise of Unwise VA Incentives. Bonuses have been awarded to VA personnel for saving the government money, not primar-ily for helping veterans get their deserved benefits. Thats why I have long urged a departmental name change that is far more than just cosmetic. Call it the Department of Veterans Advocacy, Mr. President. It is a way to fix the VAs collective mindset and affix the correct sense of mission for all who work there. As an added benefit, one retired four-star Army general will finally have a title that reflects his career-long sense of self: Secretary of Veterans Advocacy Shinseki. OPINION Thursday, March 28, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding coun-ties by Community Newspapers Inc. We believe strong newspapers build strong communities Newspapers get things done! Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers. This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman L egislation moving in the Florida Senate (SB 1666) this year would make major changes to how bank foreclosures are noticed. These changes could be detrimental to many citizens, as we have yet to overcome the digital divide, which disenfranchises large facets of Floridians, and the change proposed in this bill to house the second public notice of foreclosure on the Internet would greatly diminish access to this critical informa-tion. Florida law requires that the first and second notices of foreclosures be printed in newspapers. And effective in July, notices also will be required to be posted on the newspapers websites. Moreover, since July 1, 2012, Floridas newspa-pers have been required to post their notices to www.floridapublicnotices.com. However, research shows that newspapers have been posting notices to this independent website of the Florida Press Association, where all notices are easily search-able and available at no charge to the public and no additional cost to the advertiser, since 2002. SB 1666 has a provision in it that would remove the second notice requirement from a local news-paper or newspapers website and allow it to only be posted on a third-party website, operated by a new vendor with no public accountability or history of publishing legal notices. [We] firmly believe that this move would significantly hinder access to this critical information. When Floridians want information, they turn to their newspapers, in print and online. Research shows that Floridians still regularly read print newspapers and consider them a source of valuable information. Scarborough Research (Multi-Market 2012, Release 2) found that 60 percent of Floridians surveyed had read a print edition newspaper in the past seven days, fur-ther debunking the myth that print newspapers are becoming obsolete. But even if that wasnt true and print newspaper readership was on the decline and the argument that posting online is more in line with current times and technology, then wouldnt logic further dictate that posting these vital second notices on trusted and well-known newspaper sites would ensure that tech-savvy consumers would see these notices? And wouldnt that also accomplish the sponsors goal of bringing public notices into the 21st century? On behalf of the Florida Press Association and all Floridians impacted by this proposed legisla-tion change, we urge lawmakers to remove this portion of this good bill and work to ensure that the public is able to view public notices of fore-closures in trusted public newspapers and news-paper websites. Senate legislation would threaten public access to foreclosure notices At VA, wrongly denied claims add to backlog ANOTHER VIEW LETTERS POLICY Letters to the Editor should be typed or neatly written and double spaced.

BY EMAIL: email@example.comTo the Editor:The utter frustration expressed by Mr. Manuel Enos concerning gun control is a harbinger of things to come in this formerly great country. He sees our rights being usurped by a federal government which is totally out of control, and the sad part is that many of the people who support this type of gov-ernment do not, or cannot, read. Having already lost a few friends because of my outspoken views, let me admit freely that my opinions are not politically or reli-giously correct, but they tend to give voice to others who agree and are too timid to speak out lest some-one disapprove. For the record, I am also armed and would not hesi-tate to incapacitate anyone attempt-ing to harm me or mine in any way whatsoever. The Reporter of March 26, 2013 addressed the extensive weekend storm damage, and in addition, the plight of the disabled single mother with six children negatively affected by it. But on this note, how is it that a young woman who is disabled and single has six children with no visi-ble means of support? Birth control is readily available for anyone who wants it; yet, here is a poor disabled woman burdened with six additional mouths to feed. Rather than spending millions of dollars promoting more useless gun control, why not spend a few dollars to finance MANDATORY tubal liga-tions for the indigent, at least after the second child. (I just slid anoth-er shell into the magazine anticipat-ing the onslaught of outrage!) Are we so dumb and clueless as to saddle our future genera-tions with the ever increasing debt brought about by these insane policies? The poor must be provided for, but must they be encouraged to reproduce at the expense of every-one else? Will people never face the facts of what has been done to our country, and in the name of what? Enlighten me if you can.Our president is a talker, not a doer, and he cares nothing about the stagnant economy or lack of employment opportunities. Government control of individual wealth and his toothy countenance perpetually plastered all over the television screen is what he lives for. I can hardly wait to be called a bigot, racist, or atheist by the very people who should instead be trying to get control of their own followers. Sell some Lake City Reporters at my expense, folks!

By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer SAN FRANCISCO Have a heart problem? If its fixable, theres a good chance it can be done with out surgery, using tiny tools and devices that are pushed through tubes into blood vessels. Heart care is in the midst of a transformation. Many problems that once required sawing through the breastbone and opening up the chest for open heart surgery now can be treated with a nip, twist or patch through a tube. These minimal proce dures used to be done just to unclog arteries and cor rect less common heart rhythm problems. Now some patients are getting such repairs for valves, irregular heartbeats, holes in the heart and other defects without major surgery. Doctors even are testing ways to treat high blood pressure with some of these new approaches. All rely on catheters hollow tubes that let doc tors burn away and reshape heart tissue or correct defects through small holes in blood vessels. This is the replace ment for the surgeons knife. Instead of opening the chest, were able to put catheters in through the leg, sometimes through the arm, said Dr. Spencer King of St. Josephs Heart and Vascular Institute in Atlanta. He is former president of the American College of Cardiology. Its conference earlier this month featured research on these novel devices. Many patients after hav ing this kind of procedure in a day or two can go home rather than staying in the hospital while a big wound heals, he said. It may lead to cheaper treatment, although the initial cost of the novel devices often offsets the savings from shorter hospital stays. Not everyone can have catheter treatment, and some promising devices have hit snags in testing. Others on the market now are so new that it will take several years to see if their results last as long as the benefits from surgery do. But already, these proce dures have allowed many people too old or frail for an operation to get help for problems that otherwise would likely kill them. You can do these on 90-year-old patients, King said. These methods also offer an option for people who cannot tolerate long-term use of blood thinners or other drugs to manage their conditions, or who dont get enough help from these medicines and are getting worse. Its opened up a whole new field, said Dr. Hadley Wilson, cardiology chief at Carolinas HealthCare System in Charlotte. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6AHealth 164 NW Madison Street Historic Downtown Lake City, FL 32055 386.758.1811 (option 1) wolfsonchildrens.org/columbiacounty Youre closer than ever to nationally ranked health care for your child.

Double downerFrom staff reportsFort White Highs baseball team played a pair of games over spring break, but the Indians didnt receive any breaks. Fort White dropped a game, 6-2, against Bolles Academy on Monday and then fell against Episcopal High, 2-1, on Tuesday. Both teams were quality opponents for the Indians as the Bulldogs support a 15-2 record and the Eagles are 12-4 on the year. It was a great trip where we had the chance to go up against two great teams, Fort White head coach Mike Rizzi said. They were good games and we enjoyed the trip. Robby Howell and Trace Wilkinson each had two hits against the Bulldogs and Howell hit a home run in the contest. Kody Moniz and Brady Wilkinson also had hits. Howell went six innings on the mound, allowed five hits, four earned runs and struck out nine batters. Sophomore Rhett Willis got the start against Episcopal and went four innings. He allowed seven hits, two earned runs and struck out one batter. Lane Pendergrast pitched two innings, allowed one hit, struck out two batters and walked one. The Indians just didnt have it at the plate against the Eagles. Fort White had only three hits in the game led by Willis double. Trace Wilkinson and Kevin Dupree also had hits while Austin Dupree scored a run as a courtesy runner. Im real proud of the way Rhett pitched, Rizzi said. That was against some solid competition. Fort White takes the rest of the break off and will host Bishop Kenny High at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Indians drop pair of games to Bolles, Episcopal. NASCAR pleased with season, next generation carBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. NASCAR chairman Brian France is very pleased with the first five weeks of the season, and thinks the new Gen-6 race car has contributed to the many story lines fueling the sport. But he wont stand for any driver criticism of the racing, and again defended the $25,000 fine handed to Denny Hamlin for doing just that. Hamlin said after the race at Phoenix that the Gen-6 didnt drive as well as last years model. Hamlin angrily said hed be suspended before hed pay the fine, but he ulti-mately dropped the fight and NASCAR is garnish-ing the money from his earnings. France said drivers know theres no gray area when it comes to talking about the car. I have been crystal clear in the meetings with all of the drivers and all of the owners about the fact that we are going to give them more opportunities to criti-cize more things than any other professional sport in America, France said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press Having said that, there is one line that we are not going to tolerate and thats going to be criticizing the quality of the racing prod-uct in any way, form or fashion. France said the clampdown is necessary because drivers dont always know the facts when they make a statement. Sometimes one driver or another can have an opinion about that, and they may be very, very wrong. Their car may not have been working right, he said. When you call out the entire rules pack-age in some form or fash-ion, thats going to get a reaction, and should get a reaction, because thats our product. If we dont have a line out there, peo-ple can form their opin-ions and often they will be wrong, but everyone will pay attention to that wrong opinion. The decision to fine Hamlin was widely criti-cized by fans, who rallied to Hamlins defense and resented NASCAR censor-ing the driver. France said he understood the negative fan reaction. They look at that as a sanction against somebody speaking their mind, and I understand where our fans are coming from, France said. But when they take a step back, theyd under-stand that no other profes-sional sport lets you have at it, criticize anything, criticize me personally, calls we make, decisions we make, because those are judgment calls that we make week in and week out. The other sports dont allow that they look at it as infringement on the integrity of the officials. But we allow that, and only want them to be careful on one topic. We have such a small line, its way on out there, and if (a driver) cant fig-ure that out, then I dont know. Hamlin has been a central figure so far this season. He was on baby-watch during preseason testing, waiting for the birth of his first child, then opened the season deter-mined to finally win his first Sprint Cup title. A bid to win the Daytona 500 fell short and he publicly blamed Joey Logano, his former teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing, for clogging up traffic in the closing laps. France believes Gen-6 generates excitement.

DEAR ABBY: As a law enforcement officer, I would like to com-ment on your reply to Overprotective Mom (Dec. 26). I agree with your solution to have the boy who wouldnt wear his bike helmet because it was uncool visit a facility that treats people with traumatic brain injuries. However, you missed a golden oppor-tunity to remind parents that they are the parents, and because they are responsible for their childs safety, THEY are in charge! What has happened to plain old parenting? Time and again, I see chil-dren make their own rules because the parents have shrugged off the respon-sibility of parenting. You should have told them to tell their child that if he wont wear a helmet, his bike will be taken away until he does. -BILL IN BARTLESVILLE, OKLA. DEAR BILL: You and many readers are right. I DID overlook the issue of parenting in my reply. Mea culpa! Read on: DEAR ABBY: Have Overprotective Mom ask her son if he thinks firefighters, fighter pilots, police officers and football players are uncool. They all wear helmets! -JAMES IN HASTINGS, NEB. DEAR ABBY: Not wearing a bike helmet to be cool is knuckling under to peer pressure. Those parents should use this opportunity to explain peer pressure and its conse-quences to their son. He needs to understand that he must make deci-sions for himself, and his friends should accept him for who he is. He needs to learn to stand his ground and be who he wants to be despite what others think of him. He also needs to learn to make decisions that affect his life based on facts, and not follow the crowd. True friends will most often make the same sound deci-sions that he makes, or accept his decision without pressuring him. One other comment: Require the kid to wear a helmet or forfeit the right to ride a bike. Its called tough love and although it is tough, it is also rewarding. More parents need to have sound, well-thought-out rules and stick to them. -PARENT FIRST, FRIEND SECOND DEAR ABBY: Patients cannot be used as exhibits, even with the best of inten-tions. It would be unethi-cal and also illegal under HIPAA laws. A better option would be to contact the injury prevention office at a local childrens hospi-tal and ask for tips. If your readers dont live near one, there are websites filled with helpful information. -LAURIE IN DALLAS DEAR ABBY: Its true that there is no state code law in Texas regarding bicycle helmets, but many municipalities, including Dallas, have ordinances that require riders to wear them. That mother should check her city code. -CONCERNED IN TEXAS DEAR ABBY: Overprotective should let her son choose a cool hel-met and be sure its fitted correctly. Going to a bike shop may be the best bet. Serious bikers are cool and will be supportive. The boy should select the style and color he wants and decorate it with hot stick-ers or whatever he wishes. If that doesnt work, then take the bike away. -BARBARA IN RUMFORD, MAINE DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Start planning an adventure. Travel or exploring a new pastime will boost your spirits and encourage you to open up emotionally. Love is in the stars, and taking time to get to know someone better will lead to greater personal options. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An idea you have can help reform a situation you are involved in that isnt working. An interesting partnership can also lead to greater opportunity and good fortune. Be careful when traveling or dealing with authority. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your ideas are good but going about getting what you want must be handled with honesty and integrity regardless of whats at stake. Find a solution that doesnt jeopardize your reputation and you will come out the victor. Love is on the rise. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stay away from unpre-dictable people looking for an out. Follow your instincts and work toward a goal that will benefit you or pad your resume. Keep your emotions in check or you will appear vulnerable and weak. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Boast about what you have to offer and you will get the chance to show your talent. Fixing up your place or reconfiguring where you place your investments will result in more assets. Someone will be jealous of your accomplishments. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Consider whats being offered or what the people around you are doing or inferring. Dont expect to get the whole truth, but if you tune in to whats being said, you will intuitively figure out what you must do to protect your position. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put more time and effort into your personal and professional partner-ships. Having a greater understanding of what you can offer one another will make it easier to move for-ward positively with a set goal or destination. Love is amplified. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont share too much information with your peers or colleagues. You have to make sure you have everything in place to avoid anyone from derail-ing what you want to see transpire. Youll instinc-tively know when to make your next move. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick close to home and make altera-tions that will help improve your surroundings as well as your lifestyle. Love and romance are prevalent, and an understanding you share with someone will help you reach your desti-nation on time. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put greater emphasis on whatever job youve been given. Letting someone sidetrack you will lead to greater delays and problems with superiors or clients. Someone is likely to have a change of heart. Listen to grievances, but dont fold under pressure. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Settlements and contracts can be dealt with in your personal and professional affairs. Love is on the rise, and sharing your space with someone special will enhance your relationship. Past experi-ence will help you excel now. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont limit what you can do because you are afraid of the consequences. Size up your situation and follow the path your intu-ition designates. You have more control than you realize and you can make a difference if you stand up for your rights. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Hwy 90 behind Dominos 386-269-6055 Larranaga heads back to familiar territory By TIM REYNOLDS Associated Press CORAL GABLES Jim Larranaga left the Washington area for Miami, with hopes of taking anoth er team to the Final Four. To make that plan a real ity, hes headed back to Washington. Larranaga and his Hurricanes (29-6) face Marquette (25-8) in the East Regional semifinals on Thursday night, a game to be played at the Verizon Center a half-hour drive or so away from his former workplace, George Mason, the school that he led to the Final Four in 2006. And Mason won their regional at, you guessed it, the same arena where the Hurricanes are headed this weekend, where Larranaga cut down the nets seven years ago. Given all that, good karma sure seems like itll be awaiting Miami. Itll definitely help us up there, Miami guard Rion Brown said. What he did for that place was great. He brought it down here. I feel like there will be a lot of people there to support us and support him, and thatd be great. Larranaga has a team thats gaining plenty of notoriety on the court, whether its for the superb (like Shane Larkins play at point guard) or the silly (like Julian Gambles pen chant for photo-bombing postgame interviews). The coachs demeanor out on the floor rarely seems to change much, stoic but not cold on the sideline, active but never overly animated. When he leaves the floor, something changes. He takes phantom charg es in the locker room. He dives for loose balls to the delight of his players. Hes a yeller and a screamer of encouragement. And his latest viral-video move came when he channeled Muhammad Ali after Miami beat Illinois in the third round of the NCAAs, lauding his Hurricanes for being fighters. He cant keep doing that, Hurricanes for ward Kenny Kadji said of Larranagas physical antics, unable to keep a straight face. Hes got to get treat ment. What Larranaga is doing sure seems to be working. The Hurricanes had not made the NCAAs since 2008. Theyre now one vic tory away from a 30-win season, two wins shy of the Final Four and four tri umphs away from winning the whole thing. Larranaga has made it happen at a university thats three years removed from going just 4-12 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Just like parenting, your passion for being a good father or a good mother means you dont have any minutes, hours or days off. You do it 24-7, 365, every day of your childs life, Larranaga said. And for me and my coaching staff, thats the way we are with our players. There isnt a second of a day that goes by that there isnt something we have to do to help our players with something hes dealing with in his life. Even on Tuesday, a practice-and-travel day for the Hurricanes, there was something to deal with. Center Reggie Johnson had a minor surgical proce dure to repair a meniscus problem and did not accom pany the Hurricanes on their flight to Washington, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press Johnson could return for the Final Four if Miami advances, according to the person, who spoke on con dition of anonymity because the school did not publicly reveal the surgery. Heres another good sign for Larranaga, though: There are some similarities between George Mason in 2006 and Miami in 2013. In 2006, George Mason opened the tournament by knocking off Michigan State, a team that Miami defeated this season. In 2006, Mason won its sec ond tournament game over North Carolina, a team Miami beat three times this season, the last of those prompting Tar Heels coach Roy Williams to visit the Hurricanes locker room to deliver personal congratula tions. Larranaga guided George Mason to a regional semifi nal win over Wichita State, and then the regional-title victory over Connecticut, all as a No. 11 seed that many felt did not belong in the tournament. At least this time around, the Canes are a popular pick for the national title. I have such great memo ries, Larranaga said. We tell the players all the time, you create memories, and theyve created a lot of great memories for themselves. Of course, hes created more than a few more memories for them with his pregame pep talks and post game celebrations. During the game against Illinois, Larranaga said he decided that the team that was toughest mentally and emotionally would be the one that prevailed. So he urged his team to fight and fight harder, digging deep for every loose ball, every rebound. It was like a heavyweight boxing match, Larranaga said. And as I walked to the locker room, I was trying to think of what I could say to them. All I could think of was fighting and the great est fighter of all time, in my mind and my generation, was Muhammad Ali. So Larranaga did the Ali Shuffle in the locker room. Quick hands punching the air, quick feet doing a fighters dance. His players leaped from their chairs, in laughter, in amazement, in support, some combination thereof. He didnt recall the last time he tried such a move. Not recently, Larranaga said. Not in the last 45 years. ASSOCIATED PRESS Miami head coach Jim Larranaga celebrates with fans after their 63-59 win over Illinois in a third-round game of the NCAA college basketball tournament in Austin, Texas on Sunday.
