By BRANDON LARRABEE The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE A pension bill headed toward the Senate floor could spark a confrontation with House leaders over the future of the state employees retirement sys tem, though senators say theyre confident they can come up with a compromise. On a nearly party-line vote, the Senate Appropriations Committee sent the measure (SB 1392) to the Senate floor. Sen. Jeremy Ring, DMargate, joined 13 Republicans on the panel in supporting the bill; the other five Democrats opposed it. The Senate proposal has attract ed more support than a more con tentious House plan that would shut the traditional, defined ben efit plan to new public employees and force them into a 401(k)-style defined contribution system. Instead, the Senate propos al would change the default for employees who dont select a plan in a set period of time to the defined contribution system, lengthen the vesting period for employees who choose the defined benefit plan and give a discount on contribu tions to employees who enter the investment option. Compared to what we might be facing from the other chamber, this is certainly a much better option for us, said Gary Rainey, president of Florida Professional Firefighters. Some retired workers still oppose the changes in the Senate bill, but the unions who appeared at the committee meeting largely backed the overhaul. Republicans knocked away a handful of Democratic amend ments, including one that would have undone the change to the default option. Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, said public employ ees who choose the defined contri bution plan often end up with tens of thousands of dollars less in their pensions.

Big gun push by Obama By ALAN FRAM Associated Press WASHINGTON President Barack Obama urged lawmak ers Thursday to remember the children gunned down in America and not get squishy in the face of powerful forces against gun control legislation, as supporters struggle to win over moderate Democrats before a Senate vote expected next month. Obama, flanked by grim-faced mothers who have lost their chil dren to guns, said Washington must do something after the tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., three months ago. He called out to the families of four children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School sitting in his audience. Shame on us if weve forgot ten, Obama said. I havent for gotten those kids. Obamas event comes as gun control legislation faces an uncer tain future, even though more than 80 percent of people say in poll ing they support expanded back ground checks. Backed by a $12 million TV advertising campaign financed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, gun control groups scheduled rallies around the country Thursday aimed at pressuring senators to back the President chastises Congress for inaction after mass shootings. Wreck on U.S. 90 DEREK GILLIAM/ Lake City Reporter A 19-year-old man (seated) was driving west on U.S. 90 when he said he either hit something in the road or ran into the curb, causing him to lose control of his car and hit a minivan in the the eastbound lane of U.S. 90 about 3:30 p.m. Thursday. The minivan was waiting to turn at the traffic light at the intersection of Real Road. The col lision tore the wheel off the mans car, but his vehicle continued across U.S. 90 before coming to a rest in front of the Scottish Inn. The minivan had children inside, but no one involved in the crash appeared to be seriously injured, police said.

Thats just based on stuff we could see from the outside. It doesnt take into account what may have happened structurally inside the home and everything. The estimates dont take into account anything that may have happened inside the home or structurally to the home, he said. That may cause those numbers to go up.

AROUND FLORIDA Vehicle fee cut gets panel OK TALLAHASSEE A unanimous Senate panel has cleared a proposal to roll back the fees for automobile registrations a move that could save Florida drivers $225 mil-lion a year. The Senate Appropriations commit-tee approved the bill (SB 7132) on Thursday. It would reduce the annual cost to register a vehicle by $12. The state would make up the lost money by get-ting rid of a tax break to insurance companies. It lets them avoid tax on up to 15 percent of their Florida employees sala-ries. The insurance industry and the business lobby oppose the bill, but many senators said it was time to put money back in the pockets of average Floridians.Foreclosure bill moves in House TALLAHASSEE A bill to speed up Floridas residential mortgage fore-closure process is headed to the state House floor. The measure (HB 87) won approval from the House Judiciary Committee on a 12-6 vote Thursday in its last com-mittee stop before a loom-ing vote in the full House. Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, says her bill is aimed at unclog-ging the foreclosure pro-cess in a state thats been swamped by foreclosures. Passidomo says the bill offers guarantees to make sure that borrowers with a meritorious defense will be heard in court. One provision added to the bill would allow judges on senior status to hear foreclosure cases. The bill proposes several changes to the proce-dures governing foreclo-sures in Florida. Surveys indicate that Florida still has about a quarter of the nations foreclosures.Speaker defends tuition hike TALLAHASSEE State House Speaker Will Weatherford is defending a push by the Florida House to hike university and col-lege tuition six percent. The House has included the hike in budget propos-als that were unveiled this week. This puts the House at odds with Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Senate. Scott this week called a tuition hike a tax on fami-lies. The governor also noted that tuition has been going up steadily the last several years. But Weatherford told the Florida Board of Governors on Wednesday that students and families are spending as much each year on tuition as they are on their cell-phones. The board is the panel that oversees the state university system. The House and Senate have until early May to pass a new state budget.Woman bilked Medicaid of $3M ORLANDO An Orange County woman is facing charges after she allegedly bilked $3 million from the state Medicaid system. Attorney General Pam Bondi said Wednesday that authorities had arrested Janie Vittini. Vittini, the owner of Improving Together, Inc., has been accused of billing Medicaid for mental health services that her company never provided. Medicaid is a program that provides health care services to the poor. Investigators accuse Vittini of using the money received from Medicaid to purchase luxury vehicles, trips and jewelry, includ-ing Cadillac Escalades, a Ducati Superbike, a seven-person Carnival cruise, a trip to Cozumel, Mexico, and more than $175,000 of Luis Vuitton products. Comedian hurt in diving mishap SIOUX FALLS, S.D. C omedian Louie Anderson says hes been in pain all week from a recent diving mishap during a taping of the ABC celebrity diving show Splash. Anderson, who weighs more than 400 pounds, was trying to do a flip from the 5-meter board when he slammed into the water, landing on his face and chest. If I were lying down right now, you would have to help me up, the 60-year-old Anderson said Wednesday. Its been almost a week and it still hurts almost as much. Anderson, who skipped diving practice Tuesday night to take the stage in Sioux Falls, S.D., for a show benefiting the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy, said he asked the Splash staff after the accident if he was suf-fering internal bleeding or damage but was told no. They said, Thats your abs. Youve never worked them, Anderson joked. The last time I worked them was when I was strug-gling to get out of my mother. That was it, and I havent worked them since. The American version of Splash, a surprise hit that originated in Europe, has Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis coaching a diverse cast of celebrities that includes Detroit Lions lineman Ndamukong Suh, 2012 Miss Alabama Katherine Webb, basketball great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and former Baywatch star Nicole Eggert.Charlie Daniels has pacemaker surgery NEW YORK A representative for Charlie Daniels says the 76-year-old country singer is recovering after having a pacemaker implanted Thursday.

Hes sched-uled to be released Friday. Daniels said in a statement that hes feeling better and looking forward to spending Easter with his family. His Saturday and Sunday performances at Middle Tennessee State University have been canceled. Concerts with his band on April 5 in Englewood, N.J., and April 6 in Newark, Ohio, have been canceled and will be rescheduled. His tour will resume April 11 in Lynchburg, Va.

Margarita Glenn at 12:30 p.m. in response to a call about suspicious unoc cupied vehicle parked in front of the houses drive way, the report read. As Smyth inspected the vehi cle, a barking dog alerted him to an approaching man, Merriex. Merriex identified him self as the driver of the vehicle. He told the offi cers that he was visiting friends, but said he did not know their names. When asked where his friends lived, he said he did not know where they lived. Smyth then arrested Merriex for loitering and prowling, A search of Julians clothes revealed a pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana. Smyths back-up, Cpl. Damon, contacted Mary Bass, the owner of house where Merriexs vehicle was parked, but at this time the suspect began to beat his head against Smyths patrol car. Merriex said he would tell the officers anything they wanted to know, and it would be the truth, the report said. According to the report, Merriex was hanging out with two friends, Justin and Lee, but he was trying to see a local girl, Ashlyn. When asked why he was parked at the end of the driveway, Merriex said it was because he was not allowed at Ashlyns house this time of the night. Bass informed the offi cers that she knew that Merriex visited people, including Ashlyn, in the area. While waiting for Merriexs mother to arrive to take the vehicle home, the suspect asked if he could pay Smyth $1,000 to avoid arrest. Smyth told him he would not take the money, and that he was under arrest. Merriex was transport ed to Columbia County Detention Facility without incident. LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 29 & 30, 2013 3A GUNS: Congress told Dont get squishy ... Continued From Page 1A effort. Obama said the upcom ing vote is the best chance in more than a decade to reduce gun violence. He encouraged Americans, especially gun owners, to press lawmakers home from a congressional spring break to turn that heartbreak into something real. Dont get squishy because time has passed and its not on the news every single day, Obama said. Moderate Senate Democrats like Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota are shunning Bloomberg as a meddling outsider while stressing their allegiance to their own voters views and to gun rights. While saying they are keeping an open mind and that they support keeping guns from crimi nals and people with mental disorders, some moderates are avoiding specific com mitments they might regret later. I do not need someone from New York City to tell me how to handle crime in our state. I know that we can go after and prosecute criminals without the need to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of lawabiding North Dakotans, Heitkamp said this week, citing the constitutional right to bear arms. Heitkamp does not face re-election next year, but Pryor and five other Senate Democrats from Republican-leaning or close ly divided states do. All six, from Southern and Western states, will face voters whose deep attachment to guns is unshakeable not to mention opposition from the still-potent National Rifle Association, should they vote for restrictions the NRA opposes. We have a politically savvy and a loyal voting bloc, and the politicians know that, said Andrew Arulanandam, spokesman for the NRA, which claims nearly 5 million paying members. The heart of the Senate gun bill will be expanded requirements for federal background checks for gun buyers, the remaining primary proposal pushed by Obama and many Democrats since 20 firstgraders and six women were shot to death in December at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada has said there arent enough votes to approve a ban on assault weapons, while prospects are uncertain for a prohi bition on large-capacity ammunition magazines. Background checks apply only to sales by the nations roughly 55,000 federally licensed gun dealers. Not covered are private trans actions like those at gun shows and online. PENSIONS: Senate panel advances bill Continued From Page 1A That could mean the difference between a secure retirement or out living your savings and being forced to rely on the public services and possibly Medicaid, Sobel said. But Sen. Wilton Simpson, the Trilby Republican sponsoring the pension bill, said defaulting workers into the investment plan makes sense, because they are those less likely to be paying attention and more likely to change jobs before the vesting period for the traditional plan passes. This gives them a better oppor tunity to work four or five years in a career, and then change and take their assets with them, Simpson said. House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, has made clos ing the defined benefit plan to new employees a top priority for the ses sion. But that measure is seen as unlike ly to pass the Senate. Still, Senate President Don Gaetz said Wednesday that he thinks theres still time to work out a deal -with Simpsons bill as a possible template for a compromise. I think its possible that we could wind up with no bill, but I think its more likely that well wind up with something that achieves the speak ers goals and I share those goals but at the same time earns enough votes to pass the Senate, said Gaetz, R-Niceville. Weatherford said last week that Simpsons bill is better than the status quo. The Senate Appropriations Committee didnt take up another measure (SB 458) that would over haul some local pension plans for law enforcement and firefighters. But Ring, a sponsor of the measure, said the committee simply ran out of time and he didnt believe that foul play was involved. I hope it comes up next week, he said. ARREST: Man charged Continued From Page 1A DAMAGE: Losses in county estimated at $500K plus Continued From Page 1A but they have not tabu lated the overtime costs for cleanup and recovery work. Morgan said crews were still out Thursday afternoon doing cleanup. City officials estimate the city will pay $10,000 to $15,000 in overtime and associated costs for cleanup and other work associated with storm damage. Wendell Johnson, city manager, said the projected costs for overtime hours was already built into the citys budget. Other than the over time, I dont think that were going to have any applications for any dam age to the city, he said. Its just the overtime, and really, we build that into our budget anyway. Johnson said no city vehicles or buildings were damaged by the storm, but there was infrastructure damage when a lightning strike ruptured a water main line that was at least five feet underground near the Target facility. Keith Hampton, city director of distribution and collections, said the 12-inch water main was damaged by a lightning strike which caused a 188-inch split. It took us about eight hours to get it repaired, he said, noting the estimated repair cost was approxi mately $1,500. Elaine Hinsdale, FPL spokeswoman, did not have a financial estimate for the damage done to FPL equip ment by the storm. There was extensive damage with debris, she said. We brought in additional resources from Miami and West Palm to help with the clearing, debris and vegetation removal and to restore power. Hinsdale said about 9:30 to 10 a.m. Monday around 99.9 percent of its custom ers in Lake City had power restored. At aftermath of the storms on Saturday, 5,500 custom ers were without power, according to FPL officials. On Sunday, another storm caused about 2,300 cus tomers to lose power. FPL crews worked through the night, safe ly, to restore power, Hinsdale said, noting they were incredibly large trees downed and most of the repair work was just restringing the lines. She said not many power poles or transformers were destroyed. Trees and power lines dont agree when you have a bad storm with heavy winds, Hinsdale said. ASSOCIATED PRESS President Barack Obama urges Congress to take action on measures to protect children from gun violence, while speaking in the East Room of the White House in Washington on Thursday. Standing with Obama are Vice President Joe Biden, and, according to the White House, law enforcement officials, victims of gun violence, and others the White House did not want to name.

ASSOCIATED PRESS Scott, House speaker clash over tuitions By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott has made his opposition to tuition hikes for college students wellknown in the last several months. He has repeat edly said that he worries that the cost of a college education is getting too high in the state. This is a tax, its a tax on students, its a tax on families, Scott told report ers earlier this week. But Scotts opposition has done little to dissuade the Florida House from proposing a 6-percent tuition hike. House Speaker Will Weatherford on Thursday strongly defended the move, which would gen erate an estimated $37 million for the states 12 public universities. Our students and our parents are spending as much money on their cellphones a year as they are paying for tuition, Weatherford said. Weatherford, who made his remarks before the Florida Board of Governors, also said that the states overall tuition rate for university stu dents remains among the lowest in the country. The board is the appointed panel that oversees the university system. Florida charges under graduate students an average in-state rate of $6,232 a year which ranks about 41st in the nation, according to data compiled by the State University System of Florida. We think to just take tuition off the table and ignore the fact that we are ranked so low ... is not right, Weatherford said. 3A Community Concerts of Lake City Live Arts Series 2012-2013 AT LEVY PERFORMING ARTS CENTERFLORIDA GATEWAY COLLEGE Contact: Community Concerts of Lake City, Inc for further information (386) 466-8999 www.communityconcerts.info 4:2Five An instrumental band without instruments Whats an instrumental band with no instruments?

W hen meeting with King Abdullah II in Jordan last Friday, President Barack Obama was gracious enough to mention the monarchs great-grandfather, King Abdullah I, who gave his life in the name of peace. To Western ears, that sounded like a tribute. To Arab and Muslim ears, it may have sounded like a warning. To understand why, its necessary to dip into the history that Westerners seldom learn and Middle Easterners seldom forget. What we now call Jordan was for centuries a backwater of the Ottoman Empire, the last of the great Islamic caliphates. Ottoman forces made the mistake of fighting on the losing side in World War I. Defeat precipitated the collapse of the empire and the dis-solution of the caliphate. Ottoman lands were divided between the British and the French. The territory east of the Jordan River, referred to as Transjordan, became part of the British Mandate of Palestine. In Arabia, fierce warriors of the Saudi clan overthrew the Hashemite clan. Displaced Hashemites were installed by the British in Transjordan. Abdullah who had fought against the Ottomans was named Emir of Transjordan in 1921. A quarter-century later, when the Palestinian Mandate was dissolved, a fully independent Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan was found-ed with Abdullah on the throne. He opposed the establishment of Israel, and his Arab Legion was among the five armies that attempted to crush the fledgling Jewish state in 1948. In April 1949, Abdullah changed his countrys name to what it is today: the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Officially, it remained at war with Israel. Unofficially, Abdullah recognized that a long and bloody conflict with his western neighbor would benefit no one. In 1951, as he was leaving the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, he was assassinated by Mustafa Ashu, a member the Jihad al-Muqaddas, the Army of the Holy War. Winston Churchill said: I deeply regret the murder of this wise and faithful Arab ruler, who never deserted the cause of Britain and held out the hand of reconciliation to Israel. You see my point? Imagine you are Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority. You know that making peace with Israel will bring you the praise of British prime ministers and American pres-idents. Perhaps you understand that peace would be in the best interest of your people. But you also are keenly aware that serious peace-making will place you and members of your family in severe peril. Egypts President Anwar Sadat is another example of that danger.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman W elcome to Gov. Rick Scotts re-election nightmare: He runs for a second term, and his chief rivals per-ceived weakness somehow becomes his chief rivals most surprising strength. That rival would be Charlie Crist, former governor. He hasnt announced he wants his old job back, but he has raised his profile, hitting the lecture circuit and turn-ing up on TV news shows. Sure looks like politicking. After governing as a Republican, Crist became an independent and then switched to the Democratic Party. That earned him the enmity of Republicans statewide, who denounced him as a turncoat and an unprincipled flip-flopper. Weve criticized him on this editorial page, too. But not everyone is a Republican. In a survey of 1,000 registered Florida voters conducted in mid-March by the Quinnipiac (Conn.) University Polling Institute, Crist won a hypothetical 2014 race against Scott. Fifty percent of the respondents wanted Crist; only 34 percent wanted Scott. Heres the bombshell: Half of the respondents said Crists switch to the Democratic Party showed he is a practical fellow. Considerably less, 40 percent, had a problem with it. Those numbers, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the institute, indicate Republicans will have a tough job turning around Crists lead over Scott by remind-ing voters of Crists evolution. Republicans will have a tough job anyway. Voters have never warmed up to Rick Scott. They elected him over Democrat Alex Sink, but the Quinnipiac poll shows theyd pick Sink today, 45 percent to 34 percent. Its not that Scott hasnt tried. Hes done his share of flip-flopping, most recently changing positions on Medicaid expan-sion and teacher pay raises, in an obvious attempt to seem moderate. His reward? Fellow Republicans call him a RINO and legislators ignore his proposals. Poor Rick Scott. His weaknesses arent turning into strengths. Theyre just ... weaknesses. Gov.

Statistically, folks who go on a seri-ous weight-loss diet fail. They either try too hard, and lose to hunger, or lose too fast and doom themselves to gain it all backand then some. Im not an expert on nutrition, but research shows that there are certain proven principles we can depend upon for successful weight control and for attaining and maintaining a healthy body weight. Why do diets fail? Significant changes in our diet can be too severe for the body and mind to accept without a fight. The body responds by dumping hungry hor-mones into the bloodstream. Also, when cells dont get the calories they require, they actually begin to starve. It goes without saying, this can be painful. When we eat less food, theres an accompanying loss of nutrition: vitamins, minerals protein, carbo-hydrates, fats, and fiber. Theyre all needed for proper nutrition. Lack of nutrition drives the body to demand more food. Hunger wins. How about these low carb diets? Not good for long-term results. Carbs not only provide calories, but they function to control water metabolism. So on a low-carb diet, you can lose a pound a daybut, its mainly water loss. Without car-bohydrates to control water metabo-lism, your body cant store water. Its possible to become dangerously dehydrated. Then when you return to regular meals, your body quickly regains the water, and you gain it all back. Heres the good news: You can use proven scientific principles to lose weight and maintain that healthy weight. The best way to healthy weight control is a healthy diet. We need all the proper nutrients: protein, carbs, fats, (yes, we even need fats!) vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Avoid convenience foods or snack food. Food companies add sugar, fat, and extra salt, because their research shows that these added ingredients actually create crav-ings. And, since junk food doesnt provide the real nutrition you need, your body demands that you keep eating, in an effort to satisfy your basic nutritional needs. So you overeat, and store the extra calories as fat. The body is like a machine. It converts food into you. You are, to a degree, what you eat. The body has caloric needs. Consume fewer than you need, lose weight. More than you need, gain weight. Your feelings of hunger probably arent the best guide in deciding the size of your meals. You can use one of the many lists of food calorie con-tents and portion size available on the internet, or your local library, to educate yourself on general calorie content. A good rule of thumb? It takes about ten calories a day per pound of body weight to must maintain your weight. For example, if youre 200 pounds, your body requires about 2000 calories a day just to maintain that weight. You can use this principle to reach your goal weight and stay there: Choose your healthy goal weight, and multi-ply it by ten to determine how much you should eat each day. Lets say you want to weigh 180 pounds. 180 times 10 equals 1800 calories per day. Its also helpful to take regular meals. Typically, three meals a day reduce hunger, and still allow sat-isfying meals. For an 1800-calorie diet, that would be about 600 per meal. Dont obsess over this. Its okay to give in to a little snack rather than feel like a failure and give up. Stop worrying about how long it takes. Be patient. Good things come to those who wait. For a healthy lifestyle, add a little physical activity. Its not necessary to run a marathon. Walking can be a great way to work out, with the least stress or risk of injury. Include some stretching. Check with your doctor, to allow for any physical limitations you may have. How about putting some of these principles to work for yourself? Be healthier and happier. Make the choice now, and make it happen. Id really like to hear how its work-ing for you. Let me know, at Bob.Denny8@gmail.com.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, March 29 & 30, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V Law of God or law of the land?F rom time to time our country makes a law that comes in conflict with the Law of God. Law makers put their constituents in a posi-tion between obeying the laws of the land and the Law of God. It is readily admitted that God says we are to obey the laws of the land, but what should a person do if the law of the land puts them into a position which makes them violate the law of God? This situation is not particular to our country but has been the case with believers in God for centuries. The Jewish midwives in the days of the Egyptian Pharaohs were instructed to kill any male Jewish newborn. Daniel was instructed that he would eat the kings prepared meals but Daniel concluded that would make him violate Gods law. Later in the life of Daniel, there was a law that prohibited him from praying to his God. Herod the king was going to kill Jesus after the Wisemen came back and told him where Jesus was located. Peter and John were told by the Jewish Sanhedrin Council that they were not to preach about Jesus in the city of Jerusalem. The Jewish midwives did not obey the command of the Pharaoh. Daniel convinced his overseer to allow him to have a different diet. After learning of the law of the Medes and Persians that prohibited Daniel from praying, the elder states-man Daniel continued his cus-tom of praying three times a day to his God. An angel of the Lord sent the Wisemen back home a different way. Peter and John told the Council, We must obey God rather than men. In our country today, we are very fortunate to have a form of government which allows us to have some input into the laws which are made. We need to exercise that right. When we must, we need to exercise our rights to protect ourselves from harm just like Paul did when he appealed to Caesar. We need to find a way to not violate the laws of the land while at the same time not violate Gods law. We need to find ways that will keep us from having a conflict with the laws of the land. But what if we are faced with a choice between the law of the land and the law of God and we have exhausted all means to not violate either, what should we do? The obvious answer is that we must make a choice. The question is which one? There are two examples to help us with this dilemma: the friends of Daniel who were faced with being thrown into the fiery furnace and the aged Daniel who was faced with being thrown to the lions. Daniels friends expressed their attitude by say-ing, Let it be known to you, O King, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up (Daniel 3:17, 18). The elder Daniel seems to be taking the attitude, he is still going to obey God. However, a statement by Jesus may give us the best advice as to how to handle this situation. Jesus said, Do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28). When we get to the point that we are able to say, I do not care what happens to my earthly body, then we will be able to make the proper choice of obeying the law of God. When we are faced with a conflict with the law of God, we must always obey God. We do not need to use this as a reason for being rebellious to the laws made by the civil authorities but neither do we need to say that we have no choice but to obey the laws of the land. L ast week we talked about the first beast of Revelation 13:1-10. V8 says All who dwell on earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. We turn to the second beast as recorded in verses 11-18. Verse 11 says Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth (land), and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. The first thing we should note is this second beast comes up out of the earth or land. Most Bible scholars agree that the earth here means out of Israel. He will be of Jewish descent. This had to be true because according to II Thessalonians 2:3-4 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away come first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all this is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. We know that shortly after the rapture of the Church the temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt. It will not have the outer court of the Gentiles as the first temple did. Anyone that understands Jewish customs will know that there if no way that they would ever allow a Gentile in the temple; let alone the Holy of Holies. So this person will most certainly have to be of Jewish descent. This person will no doubt be the Antichrist. The second beast makes his appearance out of the earth. This beast will have two horns like a lamb; but he has the voice of a dragon. These two beast are world dictators; one political, the second religious. Oliver Greene put it this way When the second beast makes his appearance, things will be leveled off politically. It will be a time of false peace. Let us compare the two beast. The first beast is a secular power; the second beast is a religious power. The first beast is a Gentile; the second is a Jew. The first beast has ten horns; the second had two horns. The first beast is a civil authority; the second is a reli-gious authority. The second beast is subordinate to the first beast. He uses military power of the first beast to force his demand and his dictatorship. The second beast is lieutenant to the first. He appears after the first beast. They do not appear at the same moment. The first beast is the head of a vast military and political system, and as such he perishes at the com-ing of the Lord at the close of the Tribulation. No power on earth can withstand this tremendous political beast. The second beast will rule in Palestine. He is the minister of the first beast. The second beast is the one who deceives the world and labors untiringly to put Judaism and all religions on the world into the arms of Satan. The world church that we hear so much about today will come to pass. Behold today is the day of Salvation!

One of the difficult times was, we just couldnt do some of the things other kids were doing. There were school activities we wanted to attend, like the school dance. It wasnt much it wasnt the end of the world, but as kids, we thought it was. We just couldnt understand why? We didnt like being dif-ferent. Truth be told, preachers kids, and families are put on a ped-estal. They are expected to be better than the other kids, since they are an extension of the Minister, and thus the church. This means being open for all kinds of criticism from members. It wasnt all bad of course, but WE had to be especially careful, because we didnt want dad to lose his job on account of us so dancing was out. We missed the school socials, the proms, and when we started to date, we didnt know how to dance. Now, some 50 years later, thanks to my wifes encourage-ment, weve started to dance. At first it was Swing dance, which is nice, but we had to do some travelling each week for les-sons. Then we happened to find Round Dancing here in Lake City! I never thought I would get it, but since January, we have both been learning, and having fun. Sure I have a long way to go, but better late than never. Each Monday evening at 6:30 till 8:30 at Richardson Center, we look forward to learning. Along with that, we are starting to learn Square Dancing, Tuesday evenings at Teen Town! Who knows whats next, Waltzing, Line Dancing Why not?! Preacher or not, PK or not, here we come! Who said, You cant teach an old dog new tricks, well Im here to tell you . this old dog can! Actually everyone can learn, if they want to bad enough. Im so happy to have a wife who encouraged me to try. Besides, it means being together, making friends, having some good fun. Try it. David did. No he wasnt doing the Round Dance he was just over-joyed at bringing the Ark of the Lord back. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of Jehovah with shouting, and with the sound of the trum-pet. And it was so, as the ark of Jehovah came into the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before Jehovah; and she despised him in her heart (2 Samuel 6:15-16). (Dont know why Michal despised him in her heart maybe he never learned to dance, or had two left feet like me.) Sure some dances are not good because they are not intended just for fun. Think about it, theres a reason why they call Dirty Dancing dirty. Can I have this dance, for the rest of my life...? Im so proud, my wife said, Yes!

Is there any truth to this position? Should a clear conscience even be of concern in the endjustifies-the-means mentality of our culture or any culture for that matter? In Acts 23:1, the apostle Paul is standing before the Sanhedrin, the highest court of the Jewish nation in New Testament times. In response to the charges brought against him, Paul looked straight at the Sanhedrin and said, My broth-ers, I have fulfilled my duty to God in all good conscience to this day. Why on earth would a clear conscious be Pauls defense? In order to answer these questions, the first thing we need is a good working definition of our conscience what is it exactly? According to the New Testament Lexical Aids, the Greek word for conscience is syneidesis which denotes the faculty of the mind whose nature it is to bear witness to ones own moral conduct. In other words, when you are pon-dering over a situation, it is your conscience that casts a vote about the rightness of your behavior. For me this answers at least one of our questions: given that my conscience will be voting on my conduct for the rest of my life, I think it should definitely be a concern! Since Paul voiced this as his defense, I think he felt the same way. I am so thankful the Bible includes these words of Paul, because his past had more than a few blemishes, and yet he pronounces his conscience clear. This means it is also possible for all of us without a spotless past to joy a clear conscience in the present! So how do we trade in the sleepless nights for an affirm-ing vote? First, recognize as a believer that the Holy Spirit plays a critical role in creating and maintaining a clear conscience. It is His job to confirm a clear conscience (Romans 9:1) and to convict a guilty one (John 16:8). Of course, what we would prefer is to ignore our sin, and often try diligently to do just that, but our conscience is the one part of us that refuses to look the other way. The second thing we often do is attempt to soothe our guilty conscience with good deeds. If we have wronged someone, instead of admitting the wrong and asking for forgiveness, we try to smooth it over by a nice gesture. According to Hebrews 9:9, gifts and sacrifices are not able to clear the conscience. Even when we dont want to hear it, our conscience brings awareness of what we ought to do to get to the bottom of the issue. The rest is up to us. Finally, Paul encourages us in Hebrews 10:22 to draw near to God. Often, when we feel guilty, we tend to avoid coming into His presence. However, when our conscience condemns us, what we need most is to come clean before God. He already knows the intent of our heart, so lets go ahead and get it out in the open. Confess. Ask forgiveness. Ask for instruction if we need to make something right with someone. Then, be assured of God love and forgiveness, and finally get a good nights sleep!

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER CHILD CARE FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 29 & 30, 2013 Study: Better TV might improve kids behavior By DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIP Associated Press SEATTLE Teaching parents to switch channels from violent shows to edu cational TV can improve preschoolers behavior, even without getting them to watch less, a study found. The results were mod est and faded over time, but may hold promise for finding ways to help young children avoid aggressive, violent behavior, the study authors and other doctors said. Its not just about turn ing off the television. Its about changing the chan nel. What children watch is as important as how much they watch, said lead author Dr. Dimitri Christakis, a pediatrician and researcher at Seattle Childrens Research Institute. The research was to be published online Monday by the journal Pediatrics. The study involved 565 Seattle parents, who periodically filled out TVwatching diaries and ques tionnaires measuring their childs behavior. Half were coached for six months on get ting their 3-to-5-year-old kids to watch shows like Sesame Street and Dora the Explorer rather than more violent programs like Power Rangers. The results were compared with kids whose parents who got advice on healthy eating instead. At six months, children in both groups showed improved behavior, but there was a little bit more improvement in the group that was coached on their TV watching. By one year, there was no meaningful difference between the two groups overall. Low-income boys appeared to get the most short-term benefit. Thats important because they are at the greatest risk, both for being perpetrators of aggression in real life, but also being victims of aggression, Christakis said. The study has some flaws. The parents werent told the purpose of the study, but the authors con cede they probably figured it out and that might have affected the results. Before the study, the children averaged about 1 hours of TV, video and computer game watching a day, with violent content making up about a quarter of that time. By the end of the study, that increased by up to 10 minutes. Those in the TV coaching group increased their time with positive shows; the healthy eating group watched more violent TV. Nancy Jensen, who took part with her now 6-yearold daughter, said the study was a wake-up call. I didnt realize how much Elizabeth was watch ing and how much she was watching on her own, she said. Jensen said her daugh ters behavior improved after making changes, and she continues to control what Elizabeth and her 2-year-old brother, Joe, watch. She also decided to replace most of Elizabeths TV time with games, art and outdoor fun. During a recent visit to their Seattle home, the children seemed more interested in playing with blocks and running around outside than watching TV. Another researcher who was not involved in this study but also focuses his work on kids and television commended Christakis for taking a look at the influ ence of positive TV pro grams, instead of focusing on the impact of violent TV. I think its fabulous that people are look ing on the positive side. Because no ones going to stop watching TV, we have to have viable alter natives for kids, said Dr. Michael Rich, director of the Center on Media and Child Health at Childrens Hospital Boston. ASSOCIATED PRESS Elizabeth Jensen, 6, center, and her brother Joe Jensen, 2, left, are given the special afternoon treat of a little TV time, at their home in Seattle. The childrens mother Nancy Jensen was a participant in a new University of Washington study on the effects of television viewing on kids. As a result of what she learned, her children spend more time with hands-on toys and less time watching TV. Online: Pediatrics: www. pediatrics.org Legoland Florida announces expansion Associated Press WINTER HAVEN The worlds largest Legoland theme park will expand this summer to include a new ride and interactive play area based on the compa nys popular Legends of Chima product line. Legoland Florida officials announced that the new section will include an inter active water ride called The Quest for Chi, a Lego-build ing challenge, a 4-D movie and a meet-and-greet with costumed characters. This is the first time a theme park has invested in a major expansion concur rently with the rollout of a new brand and product line, and it was an easy decision based on how well LEGO Legends of Chima has been received by children and those who are young at heart around the world, said Legloland Florida General Manager Adrian Jones in a news release. According to Legos web site, the Chima storyline is about a pristine, natural paradise that has become a battle ground for eight animal tribes. Best friends are now enemies. The animals fight for control of a natural resource called CHI, a pow erful element that is both a source of life and potential destruction, the website reads. The Lego-building chal lenge will revolve around Speedorz chariots, which are the vehicles used by the animal tribes. The park will also offer a full Legends of Chima product line at its stores. Since opening in October 2011, the location has added hotels, a Star Wars-themed area and a water park. Legoland is based on the building-block toys and has rides and attractions geared toward ages 2 to 12. The Winter Haven location is one of five Lego-based theme parks in the world, and the companys largest. Legoland Florida General Manager Adrian Jones speaks at the construction site during a news conference to announce the expansion of the attraction with the addition of The World Of Chima at the theme park in Winter Haven.

By ANNE FLAHERTY Associated Press WASHINGTON After Friendster came MySpace. By the time Facebook dominated social media, parents had joined the party, too. But the online scene has changed dramatically, as it turns out and these days even if youre friends with your own kids on Facebook, it doesnt mean you know what theyre doing. Thousands of software pro grams now offer cool new ways to chat and swap pictures. The most popular apps turn a hum-drum snapshot into artistic photogra phy or broadcast your location to friends in case they want to meet you. Kids who use them dont need a credit card or even a cell phone, just an Internet connection and device such as an iPod Touch or Kindle Fire. Parents who want to keep up with the curve should stop think ing in terms of imposing time limits or banning social media services, which are stopgap mea sures. Experts say its time to talk frankly to kids about privacy controls and remind them again how nothing in cyberspace every really goes away, even when soft ware companies promise it does. What sex education used to be, its now the technology talk we have to have with our kids, said Rebecca Levey, a mother of 10-year-old twin daughters who runs a tween video review site called KidzVuz.com and blogs about technology and educations issues. More than three-fourths of teenagers have a cellphone and use online social networking sites such as Facebook, according to the Pew Research Centers Internet and American Life Project. But Facebook for teens has become a bit like a school-sanctioned prom a rite of passage with plenty of adult chaperones while newer apps such as Snapchat and Kik Messenger are the much cooler after-party. Even Facebook acknowledged in a recent regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it was losing younger users: We believe that some of our users, particularly our younger users, are aware of and actively engaging with other products and services similar to, or as a substitute for, Facebook, the company warned investors in February. Educators say they have seen kids using their mobile devices to circulate videos of school drug searches to students sending nude images to girlfriends or boy friends. Most parents, they say, have no idea. A stay-at-home mom of eight kids in Burke, Va., Eileen Patterson said she used to consider herself fairly tech savvy and frequently spends time on Facebook. But she was shocked to learn her kids could message their friends with just an iPod Touch mp3 player. She counts nine wireless devices in her home and has taken to shutting off her homes Wi-Fi after 9 p.m., but she describes her attempt to keep tabs on her kids online activity a war Im slowly losing every day. I find myself throwing up my hands every now and again, Patterson said. Then Ill see something on TV or read an arti cle in the paper about some hor rible thing that happened to some poor child and their family, and then I try to be more vigilant. Mobile apps refer to the soft ware applications that can be downloaded to a mobile device through an online store such as Apples iTunes. According to the Federal Trade Commission, there are some 800,000 apps available through Apple and 700,000 apps on Google Play. Among the most popular mobile apps among kids is Instagram, free software that can digitally enhance photos and post them to your account online. Kids on Instagram whose parents close ly monitor their text messages, Facebook posts or emails can also chat with their friends using the service. Their photos can also be shared on other social media sites such as Facebook, which bought Instagram last year. Then theres Snapchat, among the top 10 free iPhone apps avail able. Snapchat lets a user send a text, photo or video that purport edly self-destructs within 10 sec onds of being opened.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS F RIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 29 & 30, 2013 3B3BSports ASSOCIATED PRESSFloridas Mike Rosario (3) is lifted by teammate Erik Mu rphy as they celebrate winning a third-round game agai nst Minnesota in the NCAA college basketball tournament Sunday in Aus tin, Texas. Florida defeated Minnesota 78-64. Florida plays Florida Gulf Coast University today. ASSOCIATED PRESSMiami Heat center Chris Bosh (1) shoots over Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng during the first half in Chicago on Wednesday.Heat start to move on after streak endsBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressTheir winning streak finally over, the Miami Heat did on Thursday what they had planned to do all along. They took the day off.While the circus atmosphere around the team may slow down now until the playoffs start, anyway the way the reigning NBA champions go about their business over the final 11 games of the regular season prob-ably will not. Miamis epic, historic, sometimes-mind-boggling 27-game winning streak ended with a 101-97 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, and Heat guard Dwyane Wade was among those sound-ing absolutely relieved afterward. It really didnt matter to us, Wade said. If you get it, its awesome. If you dont, we still won 27 games in a row. Thats pretty awesome. So, we really werent like, Weve got to get that record. Not at all. And now that its over, Im glad its over. Next up: Friday night at New Orleans, where the Heat will try to return to their winning ways. Miamis quest for NBA history ended with the Heat six games shy of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the leagues longest win-ning streak. The Lakers will keep their record, but the biggest Lakers star of this generation offered the Heat plenty of respect when their run was over. I think just as a student of the game, as a fan of the game, you appreciate those kind of streaks and you realize how difficult it is to put together that big of a streak, Lakers star Kobe Bryant said after learning of the Heat loss. Obviously the Lakers win-ning 33 in a row was phe-nomenal, but the Heats one was just as impres-sive. Still, the Heat insist they can get better. When Indiana beat the Heat on Feb. 1, Miami coach Erik Spoelstras postgame theme was that his club had to get better. Nearly two months later, when the Heat streak ended in Chicago, much of Spoelstras postgame remarks had the same theme. Players understood his point. At the end of the day, a win is a win in our league, said reigning MVP LeBron James, who averaged exactly 27 points per game during the 27-game win-ning streak. Weve gotten better throughout the sea-son. Each and every month weve improved. Weve started from behind some games, but for the most part weve played some great basketball. Were not a team that builds bad hab-its. Thats not even who we are so were not worried about that. No matter how they did it, no matter how many double-digit deficits they erased or fourth-quarter comebacks they pulled off, the bottom line was Miami enjoyed 7 1/2 weeks of dominance. Entering Thursday, 10 NBA teams hadnt won 27 games yet this season. Really proud of the grind of the last few weeks from my guys, Miami for-ward Shane Battier, who was part of a 32-game win streak at Duke, 22 with the Houston Rockets and now 27 with the Heat, wrote on Twitter early Thursday. The focus and effort (and luck) was phenom-enal. Battier closed that tweet with two hashtagged words onward and upwards. Whether it was because they were revered or reviled, the Heat probably got more eyeballs on NBA regular-season basketball than any team had in some time, with people watch-ing to root for either the streak continuing or the streak ending. They were must-see TV, as proven by national net-works like ESPN and NBA TV scrambling to pick up Heat games as the streak rolled along. ESPN said the overnight rating for Heat-Bulls was the fifth-best of any regular-season game ever shown on the network. State showdown: Florida Gulf Coast goes up against FloridaBy STEPHEN HAWKINSAssociated PressARLINGTON, Texas A week ago, Florida Gulf Coast University was just another overlooked No. 15 seed a longshot at best to nearly everyone eyeball-ing their NCAA tournament brackets. Now the Eagles are the high-flying show from Dunk City in the round of 16, the darlings of the South Regional and a bracket-busting team everybody is talking about even when surrounded by former national champi-ons Michigan, Kansas and Florida. Things have changed dramatically, FGCU coach Andy Enfield said. The way we looked at it, we did make history. ... We feel like we shocked the world, said Brett Comer, the guard with 22 points and 24 assists in two NCAA games. Nobody picked us to beat Georgetown, or San Diego State, for sure. Were going to prepare for Florida the same way. Were going to try to win again. Florida Gulf Coast (2610) plays the SEC regular-season champion Gators (28-7), the No. 3 seed in the South, on Friday night. The improbable intrastate showdown is magnified even more at Cowboys Stadium, where the court is on a raised stage and below giant high-definition screens that had the players attention on Thursday. Even if you make big plays, its hard to get a good angle on that TV, you have to stand right on the edge (of the court), Eagles for-ward Chase Fieler said. Well have to run more toward the sideline to see it. This group doesnt need one of the worlds larg-est HD displays to appear larger than life, though any highlight dunks sure will look good on the big screens. How about a few shots up there of their sun-soaked campus in Fort Myers, Fla., with its manmade lakes and a beach? The schools first classes were held in August 1997, making FGCU young-er than the players who have put it on a national stage. I never heard of Florida Gulf Coast until actually I started to visit the school and to attend it, admit-ted Sherwood Brown, the dreadlocked showman who leads the Eagles in scoring (15.6 points per game) and rebounds (6.6 rpg) and is their only senior starter. After their two NCAA tournament victories in Philadelphia, the Eagles arrived home early Monday morning. All the players were in back in class a few hours after that, though the atmosphere had cer-tainly changed on the cam-pus with an enrollment of 13,468. It was a busy week, just with the attention and the media being around. And the students were excited about whats going on and talking to us, Fieler said. But now were in Dallas, we can feel the game start-ing to get closer and closer, Enfield said. Just like the Georgetown and San Diego State games got closer and closer. And theyre very, very focused. While Florida Gulf Coast was back home getting accolades and trying to pre-pare among a pep rally-type atmosphere, the Gators spent the entire week in Texas. They stayed in the Lone Star State instead of going back-and-forth after beating Minnesota last Sunday in Austin, about three hours away. The Eagles are in the round of 16 in only their sec-ond season being eligible for the NCAA tournament. Florida, a state school with nearly 50,000 students, has a roster loaded with NCAA experience. It is the first time that two teams from the same state have meet in this round of the NCAA tournament. Florida, which won consecutive national titles in 2006 and 2007, has been to regional finals each of the last two years. But this is the last chance for seniors Kenny Boynton, Erik Murphy and Mike Rosario to get a championship of their own. We remember the pain it caused for us last year, Boynton said. I think we used it to learn. ... Weve been close. And our goal is to get further this year. The Gators, Kansas, Marquette and Ohio State are the only teams in the NCAA round of 16 for the third season in a row. It is the first time Florida has done that. Yet, most of the attention is going to the smaller school about 250 miles away that the Gators have played only once before. That was a 94-60 Florida victory at home in 2008, when Florida Gulf Coast was in only its second season of Division I competition. Florida Gulf Coast did play this season against the third Florida team that made it to the round of 16. The Eagles won 63-51 at home Nov. 13 against Miami, the ACC regular-season and tournament champion and No. 2 seed in the East Regional. Florida presents quite a challenge, ranked second nationally allowing only 54 points a game. But neither Georgetown or San Diego State allowed much more than that. FGCU scored 78 against the Hoyas, including a 21-2 run, and scored 17 in a row in the second half against the Aztecs on the way to 81 points. Were playing against a really, really good team thats playing as well as any-body in the country right now. And theyve had some incredible runs, Florida coach Billy Donovan said. I know there are a lot of nice stories out there. But weve got focus on the stuff that we need to do going into the game. ASSOCIATED PRESSFlorida Gulf Coast players have some fun after practice for a regional semifinal game in the NCAA college basketball tournament on Thursday in Arlin gton, Texas. Florida Gulf Coast faces Florida on today.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 29-30, 2013 DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been dating for several months. Hes fun and caring, and we spend a lot of time together. Hes different from other boys I have dated. We can talk to each other about anything. My only concern is our relationship physically. He makes it very clear that he wants to go all the way with me. He isnt rude or pushy about it. I dont want to rush into anything. We are both virgins (he does have more experience), and while I have known him for a long time, I dont know him as well as Id like. I want to wait until we have dated for at least six months. He says he respects my decision and says he doesnt want to pressure me. I still feel a little rushed. All of our friends have had sex, but I dont want it to be about our hormones in the heat of the moment. I hate saying no to him. I know he wont leave me, but I feel bad for leaving him frustrated. Would it be wrong to agree to hav-ing sex with him -some-thing we both want -even if I dont know if were ready for the next step? -UNSURE IN CANADA DEAR UNSURE: Yes, it would be wrong. The first time you have sex it should be because you are 100 percent sure you are ready, and he is the right person. And as for feeling guilty because you are leaving him frustrated -I have a solution. Socialize with him in group settings and spend less time alone together. That way there will be less frustration for him and less temptation for both of you. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am a single mother raising a 15-year-old son. For most of his life it has just been the two of us. I now regret that I put him in bed with me when he was a baby. As he grew older, I encouraged him to sleep in his own bed, but it would last only a few nights, and then he would sneak back into my room. I was married for three years when he was around 11, and hed sneak into my husbands and my bed-room after we were asleep and sleep on a couch in there. His problem is he is terrified of the dark and believes in ghosts, mon-sters, etc. He says he has a phobia and I believe him. I tried getting a dog for him to sleep with and night-lights, but nothing worked. If I lock him out, he lays awake all night, scared to death. -TROUBLED IN ARIZONA DEAR TROUBLED: Some sessions with a psy-chologist who specializes in phobias would be the quickest way to help your son overcome his problem. And when you consult with one, I am sure the thera-pist will recommend that your son stay away from violent video games, and movies or television shows that feature ghosts, mon-sters or anything else that goes bump in the dark because they could only increase his fears. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im different from other girls. I dont wear girly clothes. I prefer dark clothes and makeup. My mom thinks Im strange because I dress differently. Do you think I look like a freak for not conforming, or is there nothing wrong with being different? -DIFFERENT IN WASHINGTON DEAR DIFFERENT: I would never call you a freak because of your attire. It is common for young people to express their individuality by their dress, hairstyle and make-up. There is, however, a point when a persons style choices can be limiting. My question for you would be, Are you getting the kind of attention you WANT from presenting yourself this way? The answer should determine how you choose to dress. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Theres this guy I like, Joey. My sister likes him, too. Joey and I are not dat-ing, although we are very close friends. My sister (of course) decided to ask him out on a date. Im so upset with her. It has been two days since their date and Im still not talking to her. I cant believe she asked him out when she knew I was about to. I dont want to ruin our relation-ship, but Joey is now into her. Please give me some advice before I do something terribly wrong. -CANT TAKE IT IN FLORIDA DEAR CANT TAKE IT: If your sister jumped in knowing you were interest-ed in Joey, it was sneaky and wrong. But you have nothing to gain by declar-ing war over it. Keep your options open and bide your time. With luck, their romance will blow over -and when it does, if you have maintained your position as Joeys close friend, you can make your move then. It may take nerves of steel, but I have faith in you, and it will be worth it in the long run. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My niece is being married soon on the East Coast. My hus-band and our two teenaged children have been invited to attend. We cannot afford the multiple airfares and the cost of hotel accommo-dations that attending this wedding would require. We dont look poor and we dont act poor, but money is very tight right now because were paying for the last semester of our third childs college tuition. I had already sent a lovely shower gift to my niece. How can we gracefully decline the invitation with-out offending anyone? We also have household repairs that have to be attended to. -JUST DONT HAVE IT IN SAN DIEGO DEAR JUST DONT HAVE IT: As I see it, you have two choices -respond by saying you have a conflict, or tell these relatives you would love to be there, but with the cost of a college educa-tion these days, you cant swing it. (I vote for the latter.) ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I lost my mom last year. It was unexpected, and my father and I are still hurting. Mom had a friend who never fails to tell me how the loss of her mother and her husband was much more painful for her than my loss. Every time I have the unfortunate luck of answering the phone when she calls, shell ask how Im doing, then launch into how hard it was on her and I dont know the true pain that she does. I am sick of people telling me they understand how I feel and what Im going through. No one knows the depth of what Im experiencing, except maybe my sibling. I moved back home to take care of my wonderful mother. And Abby, please know how sorry I am for the loss of your own dear mother, and thank you for let-ting me vent. -HOLE IN MY HEART IN OCEAN SPRINGS, MISS. DEAR HOLE IN YOUR HEART: Im sorry for your loss, too, and youre wel-come. Please know that no rule of etiquette says you have to listen to that wom-ans insensitive prattle. The next time she starts, it is perfectly acceptable to stop her cold and tell her that when she compares her pain to yours she is being insensitive, and that if she does it one more time you will hang up. Clearly, she is not calling to see how youre doing; she is calling to dump. There are times when you must protect yourself, and this is one of them. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Rely on your intel-ligence and your insight to lead you in the right direction.

PG-13 60 Minutes Sports Seminoles eke out eighth straight winning season By BRENT KALLESTADAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE After four straight NCAA tourna-ment appearances, Florida State is sitting home this spring watching three other in-state schools still in the hunt for a national title. Although Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton is disappointed to be a spectator, hes excited for former Seminole assistant coach Andy Enfield taking upstart Florida Gulf Coast into the round of 16 against longtime archrival Florida on Friday. Hamiltons for-mer team, Miami, is also in the tournament. Its good for the state of college basketball in the state, Hamilton said Thursday. I know how they felt when they were watching us. Just a year after winning its first Atlantic Coast Conference champion-ship with a team featuring half a dozen seniors, the Seminoles struggled all season on the way to an 18-16 record. Youre going to have a year when you have to regroup, Hamilton said Thursday. Thats the chal-lenging part, what moti-vates you to come back and get right back in that national spotlight. Hamilton needs to find a replacement for scor-ing leader Michael Snaer, but otherwise has every-one back from a team that finished 18-16 after their opening-round NIT loss to Louisiana Tech. The Seminoles didnt defeat a top tier team until late-sea-son home court victories over Virginia and North Carolina State. Florida State was eliminated from the ACC tour-nament by North Carolina and saw its season end four days later with an NIT loss to Louisiana Tech. The Seminoles had a tough time on their home floor too, losing to South Alabama and Mercer. Thats part of what we go through, Hamilton said. This is kind of our regrouping year. Snaer leaves as the schools eighth leading scorer and a legacy of a half dozen game-winning shots in the final seconds, including four this season that enabled the Seminoles to eke out a winning record for an eighth straight year. Overall, we built the foundation that I think we can stand on, Hamilton said. Hamilton said Thursday that his young team will be right back in the thick of things next year with four experienced seniors available to pick up the slack created by Snaers departure. Okaro White and Terrance Shannon, a pair of 6-8 forwards, return along with 6-11 center Kiel Turpin and shooting guard Ian Miller, who limped through his junior season with a bad ankle. Shannon also missed a major por-tion of the season with a neck injury suffered in mid-January. Okaro and Michael had to carry the load and those were heavy loads, Hamilton saids. Ive always tried to have the veterans carry the load. ASSOCIATED PRESSMarquette forward Davante Gardner (54) reaches for a loo se ball ahead of Miami forward Julian Gamble (45) during the first half of an Ea st Regional semifinal on Thursday in Washington.Marquette knocks off Miami to reach Elite 8Associated PressWASHINGTON Jamil Wilson scored 16 points, Vander Blue and Davante Gardner had 14 apiece, and Marquette advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2003 with a 71-61 win over Miami on Thursday night. The third-seeded Golden Eagles took a double-digit lead in the first half and never relinquished it, quite the contrast from their nail-biters earlier in the NCAA tournament. They shot 54 percent from the field and held the Hurricanes to 35 percent. Miami missed 18 of 26 3-point attempts. Marquette (26-8) will face either top-seeded Indiana or No. 4 Syracuse in the East Regional final on Saturday. Shane Larkin scored 14 points for the second-seed-ed Hurricanes (29-7), who matched the best run in school history.
LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MARCH 29 & 30, 2013 7B7BNASCAR April 1 marks the 20th year since NASCARs then-reigning Cup cham-pion Alan Kulwicki perished in a plane crash en route to the races at Bristol Motor Speedway. Kulwicki died along with Mark Brooks, Dan Duncan and Charlie Campbell, all employees of Kulwickis sponsor Hooters, when the plane Campbell was flying crashed on approach to Tri-Cities Airport near Blountville, Tenn. Kulwicki, 38, was struck down in his prime and lost to the sport before many people, inside and outside the garage, really got to know him. He was independent, choosing to drive his own car rather than accepting offers to drive for other top-notch teams. He insisted on being a hands-on member of his crew, and at the time was one of the few engineers in the garage, as he had a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Veteran NASCAR publicist Tom Roberts worked with Kulwicki dur-ing his championship season of 1992 and during his five-race reign the next year. He was well ahead of his time, Roberts said. He carried a briefcase. He was business in the garage. A lot of times that worked against him in that when he came in the garage area, he was so totally focused that people misunderstood him. Roberts recalls hearing terms like aloof and distant and no personal-ity used to describe Kulwicki, but he said those descriptions are off base. Its totally untrue, he said. But he was so dedicated and so focused that when he got in the garage area, it was his workplace. A lot of people didnt understand that. He could be going between his hauler and his car and he could walk by you and hed act like he didnt know you existed, but that was just his level of determination and focus in the garage area. Outside the garage area, it was totally different. Its unfortunate that very few people got to know him. Roberts said if NASCAR had the mandatory press sessions for top driv-ers that are routine today back in Kulwickis time, things would have been different. I certainly wish wed had that opportunity, he said. It would have been difficult to explain to Alan that youre going to have to lay down the tools and the thinking just for 10 minutes to come out and talk to these people, but he definitely would have garnered a lot more attention, gotten more respect and certainly a bigger fan following. Roberts said that despite his natural tendencies to focus on things mechanical, Kulwicki had vowed to be more public during the 1993 season. He was determined to be a great champion, Roberts said. Roberts was the publicist for Rusty Wallace during Wallaces year as champion, and Kulwicki had closely followed Wallaces performance as the face of the sport. Alan also remembered going to the final drivers meeting of the 1990 season and seeing Rusty receiving a standing ovation from his peers for being such a great champion and going beyond the call of duty, Roberts said. I think Alan was hoping for the same thing for himself. Roberts said Kulwicki had planned to take some time off after being hon-ored at NASCARs annual awards banquet to recharge for the new sea-son, but his duties as team owner got in the way. Alan was hoping to take a handful of books and go somewhere in the Caribbean and just kick back for a week, be left alone and get his mind rested and get ready to come back again, he said. But because he was one to do it all, he never got an oppor-tunity to do anything during that off-season. At Speedweeks 1993, Kulwicki began to feel the pressure of running a race team, driving and representing the sport as champion, all at the same time. I remember the Thursday before the [qualifying races], Roberts said. He said: I dont know if I can handle this pressure. My comment to him was, this is the height of it. Once we leave Daytona, things go back to more of a normal routine, something youll be able to handle. And for five races it worked out that way. Kulwicki finished fourth at Rockingham, third at Richmond and sixth at Darlington in his final race. On the night of the fateful flight, Roberts was scheduled to be on the plane with his driver, but decided to take a commercial flight so Kulwicki could have some private discussions with the Hooters representatives. Hes left now with memories of a man he respected both as a driver and as an individual. I was blessed to be in that environment, he said.Among the things Joey Logano did in the closing laps of the Auto Club 400 was bring out the A.J. Foyt-like beast in Tony Stewart. When Stewart was growing up, one of his heroes was the legendary Foyt, who later became Stewarts mentor as he followed in Foyts career tire tracks, racing any kind of car on any kind of track, almost always with great success. Stewart, like Foyt, became a team owner, fielding cars in several circuits and even owning the cars he drives in the Sprint Cup Series. Stewart also is much like Foyt when it comes to speaking his mind and in handling what he perceives as disrespect from others. On Sunday, Logano and Denny Hamlin, who had waged a war of words all week over an incident at Bristol Motor Speedway the Sunday before, wrecked on the last lap, opening the door for Kyle Busch, who had led the most laps but was third with one to go, to get a surprise win. The wreck, which occurred when Logano appeared to move up the track and into Hamlin, sent Hamlin into a concrete wall without SAFER barriers attached and eventually to the hospi-tal. Logano was unapologetic in his post-race comments. He probably shouldnt have done what he did last week, so thats what he gets, Logano said of Hamlin, who was hospital-ized overnight after complaining of back pain. But Loganos biggest worry going forward may be from Stewart, who was angered that Logano blocked him twice. Stewart blocked Loganos car after the race, climbed out of his own car, and an altercation with Logano and his crew ensued. Stewart said Logano has a lesson coming from him.He is a tough guy on pit road as soon as one of his crew guys gets in the middle of it, Stewart said. Until then, hes a scared little kid. Then he wants to throw a water bottle at me. He is going to learn a lesson. Hes run his mouth long enough. He has sat there and done this double stan-dard, and hes nothing but a little rich kid that has never had to work in his life. Hes going to learn with us working guys that had to work our way up how it works. Logano said the blocking was justified.I had to throw the block there, he said. That was a race for the lead. I felt if the 14 [Stewart] got underneath me, that was going to be the end of my opportunity to win the race, so I was just trying to protect the spot I had. The Logano-Hamlin incident not only opened the door for Busch to win the race, it allowed Dale Earnhardt Jr. to finish second. Joe Gibbs Racing said in a statement that Hamlin suffered an L1 compression fracture in his lower spine. He is expected to fly home to North Carolina where he will be evaluated later this week.Childress cars honor HodgdonThe Sprint Cup cars at Auto Club Speedway from Richard Childress Racing carried memorial logos in honor of Warner Hodgdon, the California industrial-ist who also was a visionary track owner, team owne r and sponsor in NASCAR in the late 1970s through the mid-1980s. Hodgdon passed away on March 20. Among the drivers sponsored by Hodgdon was Childress himself, back when he was the driver of the No. 3 Chevrolet later made famous by the late Dale Earnhardt. Warner was a great friend and partner who helped change the landscape of NASCAR team ownership in the late 1970s, Childress said. I learned a lot a bout business from the advice he gave me over the years. Warner was an entrepreneur with a great vision for where stock car racing could go, and we stayed in touch long after his time in racing ended. He was a great friend and will be missed. Hodgdon was a part owner of tracks in Nashville, Bristol, Phoenix, North Wilkesboro and Richmond. He owned parts of two race teams, including Junior Johnsons, and sponsored many a race in the series now known as Sprint Cup. Even though his NASCAR career unraveled rather quickly following problems involving his off-track interests and he disappeared from the scene, he is remembered as a visionary by many, including team owner Eddie Wood, whose family race team had sponsorship from Hodgdon in 1981 and 1982. When Purolator decided to get out of the sport, Hodgdon stepped in immediately to keep the team going. We got word one afternoon that Purolator was leaving, Wood recalled. Neil Bonnett introduced u s to Warner, and by the next afternoon we had a deal in place. Wood said Hodgdon saw the future of NASCAR long before others in the sport realized its potent ial. He said Hodgdon was working on a deal to televise the 10 races held at tracks in which he held owner-ship stakes and knew how to maximize a sponsors investment in the sport. He was doing things 30 years ago like theyre done today, Wood said. He had jets and helicopter s. He was the first to use tractor-trailer transporter s and vans painted with sponsors logos. He was so forward-thinking, way ahead of the curve. Shrinking field affects teamsThe shrinking this year of the Nationwide Series starting field, from 43 cars to 40, is working against teams with limited funding. Morgan Shepherd, Danny Efland and Joey Gase were at Bristol, but did not qualify for the race under the new format. Tony Raines and Chase Miller went to Auto Club Speedway, but failed to qualify. For Shepherd, now 71, the Bristol setback was a major one. He posted this on Facebook: Just going to let everyone know that I do not know if or when we will be attending another race event in 2013 due to non-funding. We have given all the efforts every way we could. Just can not go any longer. Sorry to disappoint. We have and are always looking for sponsors. Last year, Shepherd, a 15-time winner on NASCARs No. 2 circuit, ran 21 races and showed up for 10 more, but failed to qualify.Patrick wont race in F1Among the questions posed to Danica Patrick in her media session at Bristol Motor Speedway was one about her interest in Formula One racing. The ques-tion came after Formula Ones boss Bernie Eccleston e mentioned her favorably on the F1 website. It looked like he was kind of acknowledging my ability to drive a car, so that was kind, Patrick said, adding that shes not interested in a test drive in an F1 car. It is a lot of work to get fitted in the car comfo rtable enough to go drive it. Then I run the risk of what if it doesnt go well, and then people judge m e for that. So, unless it was something that I was re ally serious, I wouldnt do it.
