By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comSince the presidential election in November, gun shops, sporting goods stores and other retailers have had trouble keep-ing their shelves stocked with ammunition. Many gun owners feared President Barack Obama, in an effort to crack down on firearms ownership, would make it more difficult to buy ammunition as well. The shortage got even worse after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., as gun enthusiasts antici-pated a congressional push for tougher restrictions on firearms would follow. Some widely publicized Internet theories blame the federal government for buying extra-large shipments of ammu-nition as an attempt to hoard it. Others dispute these and say the Department of Homeland Security has purchased mil-lions of rounds of ammunition, but no more than it does every year since its inception. Political exchanges from both liberals and conservatives have become heated and decisive lines have been drawn concerning the issue of firearms regulations. Whatever the cause, rounds are hard to find at many Lake City firearms retailers. We usually have every caliber there is on the market, said Scott Crews, owner of Scotts Gunsmithing and Sales. Right now, the only thing we have been able to keep on our shelves is .40, .357 and .38 Special. Crews said those are the rounds he is able to keep in stock, but he does order other kinds of ammunition every chance he gets. While those large-caliber handgun rounds are available, .22-caliber rounds are almost impossible to find, Crews said. The .22-caliber round is used for target practice and small game hunting. Ive been in business 12 years, and this is the first time I have seen where you cant get it (.22 caliber), Crews said. ... You would never think you would be out of them. Besides the .22 rounds, Crews said the most difficult ammo for him to keep in stock are 9 mm, .380-caliber and .223-caliber. He said even reloading supplies for gun owners been hard to find. By BRANDON LARRABEEThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A bill giving parents more power to decide the fate of failing schools returned to the chamber that defeated it last year, passing the Senate Education Committee on a party-line vote that previewed the fight to come. The legislation (SB 862) commonly known as the parent trigger bill passed the panel on the 6-3 vote one day before the House is expected to take up its version of the measure. It is the second attempt for supporters of the bill, which would allow parents to petition school districts to consider specific turnaround options for schools that receive an F on the state report card for two consecutive years. If the district rejects the parents plan in favor of another one, the State Board of Education would choose which plan would be implemented. That board cur-rently approves a districts plan to overhaul failing schools. Last year, the legislation died on the Senate floor on a tie vote. But many of the senators who voted against it are gone, having been replaced in some cases by lawmakers who are seen as more willing to support the bill. Sen. Kelli Stargel, the Lakeland Republican sponsoring the bill, also said after the committees vote that this years version keeps many of the compromises approved last year to try to push the bill through. So I think we have much more support, not as many tweaks nec-essary, she said. I think a lot of what happened last year might have been more political than on the policy of the bill. Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Boca Raton, said wouldnt predict the bills chances of passing.

AROUND FLORIDA Events to mark states discovery TALLAHASSEE Florida officials are rolling out a vast history lesson to commemorate the first wave of Europeans to hit the states beaches half a millennium ago. The officials on Monday unveiled a series of events starting this week as part of a statewide campaign called Viva Florida 500, a yearlong commemora-tion to mark the 500th anniversary of Juan Ponce de Leons landing on the states east coast. The Spanish explorer became the first recorded European to arrive on Floridas shores on or around April 2, 1513. He is responsible for giving Florida its name, calling it La Florida in part because of the lands lush plant life. A replica of a 16th-century Spanish galleon will make port calls up a strip of the Florida coast in com-ing weeks, and a three-day exhibit this week will fea-ture rarely seen historical documents. Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner called the commemoration a teachable moment, espe-cially for young people. I want young people to remember that theyre just not here for the sun-shine, he said at a state Capitol news conference. Theyre here to learn and remember who we were as a people, how we became to be Florida. The commemoration also carries potential economic benefit. State officials hope the events will encourage visitors to linger longer in a state known as a vacation haven. The Viva Florida 500 commemoration is provid-ing the Florida tourism industry with an historic opportunity to expand travelers perceptions of the state, said Will Seccombe, president and CEO of Visit Florida.Baby undergoes transplant surgery GAINESVILLE A 15-month-old girl is recov-ering after undergoing a groundbreaking heart-lung transplant surgery. Parents Krystina Lopez and Jesus Neira had been told daughter Izabella would likely die before her first birthday. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports the child was born with a rare dis-ease that was hardening the tissue in her lungs. She was considered too young for a transplant and unlikely to find a suitable infant donor. But specialists at Shands at the University of Florida decided to take Izabella on as their youngest heart-lung transplant candidate ever. Izabella had to hang on for nine months attached to a ventilator before a match was found. She underwent surgery on Jan. 27. Doctors say her prog-nosis is good.Murder rate up in Orange County ORLANDO The number of murders in Orange County is higher than in the first quarter of the two previous years. The Orlando Sentinel reports there have been 19 murders between Jan. 1 and March 31. Nearly half remain unsolved. Nine of the murders occurred in Orlando city limits. Thats double the number of homicides in the same period in 2012. The victims include a 21-year-old man killed in a drive-by shooting at an apartment complex and a 31-year-old man shot to death after he and his girl-friend were approached by two men in a parking lot.4-year-old girl shot dead in car MIAMI A 4-year-old girl was fatally shot while she sat in a car outside her grandfathers Miami home, and now detectives are trying to determine if another child who was in the vehicle pulled the trig-ger, police said Sunday. The children were waiting in a white Mercedes-Benz Saturday evening as an adult stood nearby outside in an impoverished neighborhood with scat-tered storefront churches and boarded-up businesses on the northern edge of Miami-Dade County. Rahquel Carr was shot in the upper body with a handgun believed to have been fired from inside the vehicle, Miami-Dade Police Detective Roy Rutland said. The owner of the weapon and the car was not present and has not been charged. At least two other children were in the vehicle at the time, all believed to have been younger than 10, Rutland said. Investigators were speak-ing with those children, which Rutland said was a delicate process because of their age. We are interviewing those kids and were try-ing to ascertain if one of the other children shot the kid, he said. The Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney will review the case to deter-mine if any charges will be filed. The adult, who was standing nearby, was not identified and has also not been charged.

Psalm 14:1 Walters mum on retirement reports NEW YORK B arbara Walters says the paparazzi were lying in wait, but shes not saying anything about her future employment. Walters returned to The View on Monday, after reports circulated widely the previous Friday that she would be retiring from television in May 2014. The television news leg-end is 83 years old. She said photographers were waiting for her as she went to work on Monday, expecting she would discuss her future plans on the air. Instead, Walters had nothing to say about whether or not the sto-ries were true, saying I have no announcement to make. Walters created The View in 1997.BUCKWILD star, 2 others found dead SISSONVILLE, W.Va. A cast member of the MTV reality show BUCKWILD was found dead Monday in a sport utility vehi-cle in a ditch along with his uncle and a third, unidentified person, authorities said. Kanawha County Sheriffs Department Cpl. B.D. Humphreys said the bodies of cast member, Shain Gandee, 21, his uncle David Gandee, 48, and the third person were found Monday near Sissonville. Authorities had been searching for the men since early Sunday morn-ing. They were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville and they told people they were going driving off-road. Authorities found the 1984 Ford Bronco that belonged to the Gandee family in a ditch with all three men inside. Humphreys did not pro-vide details on the condition of the vehicle or the bodies. He said no foul play was expected. Shain, nicknamed Gandee Candy by fans, was a breakout star of the show that followed the antics of a group of young friends enjoying a wild country lifestyle. It was filmed last year, mostly around Sissonville and Charleston. Shain Gandee is the third BUCKWILD cast member to make headlines. Last week, 24-year-old Salwa Amin was sent back to jail for violating the terms of her bond following a February arrest. She was charged with two counts of drug posses-sion with intent to deliver. She was released on $100,000 bond. Amin remained behind bars without bond on Monday. Another cast mate, Michael Douglas Burford, was charged in February with driving while under the influence.Rep: Glees Monteith heads to drug rehab NEW YORK Glee star Cory Monteith is heading to rehab.

By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org A Lake City man was arrested Sunday after he admitted he placed a hidden camera in his exwifes bathroom, a sheriffs report said. Rommy Davis, 53, 109 NW Lower Springs Road, was charged with video voyeurism, loitering and prowling and burglary in connection with the inci dent. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $11,000 bond. According to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, Deputy Darrel Clay responded to a Lower Springs Road address in reference to a possible prowler and while he was headed to the address, dispatch told him the com plainant said she could see a man crouched behind her vehicle in her front yard. A few minutes later, dispatch told the deputy that the complainant identified the prowler as her ex-husband, Rommy Davis, and there was now an argument taking place in the front yard. When Clay arrived at the address, he reportedly found Davis arguing with the woman. The woman told the deputy that Davis has been caught several times in the past peeking in her windows, and, just recently, he was caught putting a video cam era in her bathroom while her daugh ter was taking a bath. Clay reported that Davis said he put a video cam era in the bathroom, but it didnt work and he threw it away. Davis ex-wife said her daughter was taking a bath with her baby when she saw a flashing light behind a plant above the toilet. She said her daugh ter questioned Davis and he admitted to putting it in the bathroom. The daughter completed a sworn statement, which said about 9:30 a.m. on March 26, Davis was at the house while the daughter was preparing to take a bath with her child. She said Davis asked if he could use the bathroom and was in there for about 30 minutes. The daughter said when she discovered what appeared to be a small spy camera, she was appalled but didnt know what to do. She wet to get dressed then returned to the bath room to retrieve the cam era, but it was gone and so was Davis. The county is consider ing leasing 9,149 square feet of space for two years. The contract indicates the county will pay $6,861 per month at $9 per square feet, including $1 per square foot for utilities. Dale Williams, coun ty manager, declared a conflict in the matter because one of the prop erty owners is his relative. However, he said the lease is for space related to the county Extension Service, Veterans Services and the Tourist Development Council. This is sort of a stop-gap measure until the county decides what its going to do on a permanent basis, Williams said. During a commission meeting last month, com missioners discussed recent developments in the countys need for addi tional office space. Those developments were: New requests for addi tional space have recently come forward; It has been about 10 years since space needs last were considered; The current and future space needs of every coun ty department and agency need to be considered; The true total space needed is not currently known, nor are the future space needs; A written plan needs to be put into place; The recent request for proposal for available space did not address renovation or relocation costs; and Details are needed about possible consolida tion of leases. In other business, the commission is slated to discuss replacing the com munications tower at the County Detention Center. I know the tower has major structural issues, Williams said. We know that because our consul tants, who service that tower for us, have actu ally identified some of the issues with pictures. Some of the problems include support members completely rusted through as well as missing nuts, bolts and other pieces. The tower has been at the detention center for more than 30 years. However, Williams said, he has not been able to find any records explaining the towers location or its spe cific height. Williams said he plans to suggest the board bring in a consultant to deter mine whether its better to make repairs to the tower or replace it. He said if the consultant suggests replacing the tower, it needs to be deter mined what the county will replace it with, height and communications wise. A replacement is so expensive, were looking at more than $600,000, he said. Because its so expensive, we need to take appropriate due diligence to make sure that the tower needs to be replaced and if we replace it, do we leave it where it is and what would be best for overall county communications.

Newman, who was not wearing a seat bel, was pro nounced dead at the scene by Suwannee County Fire Rescue personnel, FHP said. By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Fire Department will soon have a new fire engine after city council approved the purchase Monday. Fire Chief Frank Armijo wrote in the proposal that the old fire engine, Engine 3, is no longer reliable and could fail during an emergency. Armijo said the fire departments emergency vehicle technician has kept Engine 3 running as long as possible. Engine 3 was built in 1992. It was placed in reserve in 2011 and has been used only when all other fire engines were already in use at other emergencies. The engine has 111,161 road miles and 6,687 high idle, nonmoving engine hours. I can tell you (the new engine) will get us complete with our goal, Armijo told the city council. It will have a life expectancy of about 15 years. City Manager Wendell Johnson said after this purchase, the fire depart ment will not have to buy a new engine for at least 12 years. When the new engine arrives, the three main engines the department will all be 2006 models or newer, he said. The new engine will cost $349,780. The funds will come from the 2012 sales tax bond revenue and the state board administration reserve balance, according to a city council report. The purchase will be budgeted in the fiscal year 2014 fire department budget. Afternoon crash First responders work to lift the hood of a vehicle involved in a collision shortly after 5 p.m. Monday on Main Boulevard. No details about the crash were available at press time. City Council OKs buying fire truck Man charged with planting video camera AMMO: Bullet shortage has dealers in bind Continued From Page 1A All the powder and primers are going to manu facture, he said. The shortage appears to be customer-driven, and not due to big purchases by the federal government, he said. But government and law enforcement do have priority on available ammu nition. You know how the rumors start and the next thing you know, everybody is in a buying frenzy, he said. Crews said he doesnt expect the shortage to end soon. The wholesalers he buys ammunition from told him to expect the shortage to last at least another four or five months. Dal McDuffie, an owner of McDuffie Marine and Sporting Goods, said when gun control legislation became a focus of Congress, guns and ammunition start ed selling. January through April is usually a slow time for guns sales but not this season, he said. Before the Sandy Hook school tragedy, McDuffie had about 200 handguns in stock. Since the incident and the national attention, his supply dwindled to below 30. And we were getting (guns) in every day, or almost every day, but it wasnt getting any better, McDuffie said. He said his inventory is better today, and public fear has eased somewhat. People arent frantic now like they were, he said. McDuffie said some of his customers came in and tried to buy all he had of certain kinds of ammuni tion. He said he put limits on purchase quantities. I want everybody to be able to get some ammuni tion, McDuffie said. At least make it go as far as it could go. Before the national fren zy saw a run on ammuni tion, a .22 caliber round cost about 2 cents. Now, he said the retail price for .22 caliber rounds has qua drupled. Other ammunition has nearly doubled in price, he said. When McDuffie does get a large shipment of .22 cali ber rounds, the shipment is sold out quickly. He even has waiting lists for certain types of ammunition. McDuffie has in stock more ammunition then he normally would, because he doesnt know when any given round may be unavail able. Still, he believes at some point the market will return to normal. I dont turn down any ammunition right now, McDuffie said. You always keep wondering when is this going to stop.

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 T he drive to change the states loophole-rid-den campaign finance laws continues to gather steam in the state Legislature, thanks to support from the presiding officers of the House and Senate who want to eliminate some of the most abusive practices in the system. But if the ultimate goal of this effort is to reduce the influence of money in politics as it should be law-makers seem to be heading in the wrong direction. Instead of reducing the allowable amount of contribu-tions to political campaigns, legislators are increasing the limits. In some cases, the rule would be no limit at all just back the dump truck full of money up to the door and let the pols have it. This is not reform.Florida has some dandy campaign finance laws. A candidate may not accept more than $500 from any single contributor. Another law, approved in 2005, bans gifts from lobbyists. But never mind all that. Florida law also establishes what is known as a Committee of Continuous Existence, a fancy name for a legal slush fund that can receive virtually unlimited amounts of cash .... The upside of the current reform effort is the elimination of these CCEs. These accounting gimmicks allow influ-ence peddlers to funnel cash to lawmakers by another route, thus undermining the positive effect of other legislative limits. House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, has made elimination of the CCEs a priority, but the bill he shepherded to passage in the House last month is fatally flawed. In exchange for eliminating CCEs, the measure raises the cap on contributions to candidates political committees from $500 to unlimited amounts, though it requires that all expenses be related to the campaign. Under the bill, contributions for statewide candidates (as opposed to campaign committees) would increase from $500 per election to $5,000 for statewide candi-dates and $3,000 for everyone else. Candidates would also be able to carry over up to $10,000 in excess cam-paign contributions to their next campaign. Parties, political committees and candidates would also face accelerated disclosure requirements that would force them to release their campaign finance records every day during the final 10 days of the cam-paign, and weekly for the two months prior to that. Supporters say this will make campaign funding more transparent, but opponents say the package of changes gives a huge advantage to incumbents. They would likely receive the biggest contributions and be given a running start over the competition by rolling over their excess campaign funds. The result would be to accelerate the race for cash, allowing candidates to accumulate larger war chests from fewer contributors. Doing away with CCEs is a good thing. But both the House bill and a companion version in the Senate will shift much of the power ... from CCEs to super Political Action Committees and political parties. They can rake in the money in the same way, thus nullifying the practi-cal aspect of abolishing CCEs. The result, by and large, is to exchange one money pipeline for another without making a practical improve-ment in campaign financing. Voters should let their lawmakers know this is not what they consider genuine reform. By all means, abolish the CCEs, but keep rea-sonable limits on all political contributions. Eliminate slush funds A couple of weeks before the interview, Amy Jones warned me about her boss, who was to telephone me from California. He speaks fast, she said. But you must remember that this man, as a child, was forced to drink Clorox. His esophagus has been damaged. She was talking about David James Dave Pelzer, a 52-year-old man whose abuse as a child, 40 years later, is still one of the worst on record in California. He was beaten regularly; he was forced to sit on his hands in the garage; he was intentionally burned; he was starved; he was stabbed in the stomach; he was told repeatedly that he was a bad boy. If teachers had not reported the abuse in 1973, helping him to escape to foster homes, Pelzer surely would have died at the hands of his alcoholic mother. And yet, thats not what Pelzer wanted to talk about when he called, exactly on time. Im not here to talk about abuse, he tells audiences. Im here to talk about situations. Everybodys had a broken heart, been fired, gone through struggle, a reces-sion. Hes here to talk about resilience. Thats his message, not abuse, as he speaks all over the nation one year, he was on the road for 300 days and as he writes his eighth book. I wanted to talk to Pelzer after becoming interested in CASA Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused and neglected chil-dren, and after reading his first two books: A Child Called It, and The Lost Boy. You cant say enough about CASA, Pelzer said. CASA is fantas-tic. Theyre working with the kids and with the court system. Theyre like Clark Kent and Superman to these kids. You get a pri-vate, one-on-one relationship with these kids who may not ever have revealed their secret or their story. Superman was one of Pelzers imagined saviors as he sat on his hands in a cold garage, as he endured beatings and emotional abuse. If I can survive this, he would say to himself, then I can do something. And he did. At the age of 12, he was rescued from his abusive mother, who had four other sons, but abused only David at the time. He found refuge in foster homes. At 18, he joined the Air Force and was hand-picked to refuel midair the highly secretive SR-71 Blackbird and the F-117 Stealth Fighter. He married and had a son, Stephen, whom he calls his greatest achieve-ment. He became an author, a sought-after speaker. He has received numerous national awards, including the Jefferson Award for Public Service. As a child, he said, he was less than zero emotionally, psycho-logically and spiritually. As a man, he preaches resilience, responsibil-ity, helping others. Dont let your sordid past define you. Forgive and go on. Dave Pelzer has forgiven, he said. But he also remembers. So when he finds a grasshopper or centipede inside the house, his assistant, Amy Jones, said, he doesnt kill it. He takes it outside to live.

Duval St. downtown. BY FAX: (386) 752-9400. BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org To the Editor:The number of telephone calls I have received about my letter to the editor which appeared in the Lake City Reporter on March 28th, has been astounding! Thanks to all of you for calling me great, wonder-ful, brave, and more. Im none of those thingsJust an ordinary citizen who is appalled by what our government is doing to bring about our economic collapse. What I wrote barely scratches the surface of the waste and corruption now present in the highest echelons of the present administration. But back to the subject of my previous letter. I have authored a real plan for stopping any further escala-tion of the problem, but no newspa-per is in a position to promote such a stand, and furthermore, I would not ask them to. Therefore, if anyone is truly interested in the information, has access to email, and can open a PDF document, email me at email@example.com and ask for a copy. If you have no such access, call me for instructions on how you can obtain a copy via snail mail. Im finding a lot of support for my opinion, but no one willing step up publicly to stand with me, so if you dont want me to know who you are, feel free to submit just an email address with no name. I am reminded of the movie A Few Good Men, when Jack Nicholsons character was com-manded to tell the truth on the witness stand. He angrily replied, YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH! It would appear that a lot of Americans fall into that category. Wake up, people, or it will be too late. Marian LewisLake City Q Miami Herald Phil Hudginsphudgins@cninewspapers.com Q Phil Hudgins is senior editor of Community Newspapers Inc. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Back off on gun laws, Mr. President To the Editor:Big Gun Grab by Obama and Crew! Shame on us?! How about shame on you Mr. President! I have never heard this man say anything good about this country! He is always campaigning against We the people and our freedoms as if our freedom of speech and to own guns is a personal affront to him! Actually it is, he comes from a community organizer background where its an us against them mentality. I think personally he is a tormented man filled with resent-ment, anger and disdain for anyone that has an opinion or view that does not click with his own! Think about it, has anyone ever heard Mr. Obama speak in a positive or loving way about this country? I havent .... I did remember his wife saying right after the election that she was finally proud of her country .... I guess that was because WE THE PEOPLE elected a black man .... I dont think the color of his skin is the problem but I do think the blackness he harbors within himself does little to promote good feelings in many of us! I dont think that more gun laws would have helped those poor kids at Sandy Hook Elementary School since all the guns that nut case used were legally purchased by his moth-er for him! Give us all a break MR. OBAMA think about the country and not your POLITICAL AGENDA for a change!

From staff reports A former recruiter and communica tions specialist, Sgt. 1st Class DeLeon Kelly, who calls Lake City home, is now enamored with the mechanics of military contracting. I love my job because its very reward ing, said Kelly, a contracting specialist with the 724th Contingency Contracting Team, Fort Carson, Colo. I am able to see how big of a part that contracting plays not only in training missions but in day-to-day operations, as well. Kellys path to becoming a 51C non commissioned officer began while on recruiting duty. I love to talk to new people, he said. I feel that by talking to strangers, you might not only brighten someones days, you could also change a life. Thats how I initially found out about 51C. I was in Philadelphia and was talking to a stranger with an Army lanyard around his neck. I asked him how his day was going and he began talking about his job. It turns out the stranger was a military contracting officer. I asked him about it and thats when he told to me about 51Cs and what the job was all about. He also told me that NCOs were being accepted into the career filed. The rest, as they say, is history, he said. According to Capt. Jerrick Hunter, 724th CCT team leader, Kellys ability to understand contracting while apply ing sound contracting principles and his capacity for forward thinking has been a remarkable enhancement to the unit. Kelly quickly established his compe tency in contracting by taking on some of the most challenging contracting actions typically reserved for a more seasoned contracting specialist, Hunter said. He has served as the lead contracting specialist for the acquisition planning, stationing and activation of the 918th Contingency Contracting Battalion in only his second month as part of Team Carson. Hes smart, articulate and a demon strated team player. Sgt. 1st Class Kelly is the exemplar of a 51C NCO. Kelly is married and has two children. He enjoys attending sporting events with his family and playing football on his gaming console. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 6A J ust paid my phone bill, without missing the view.

Police Ball raises $5,000 for childrens charity From staff reports The Lake City Police Department host ed its 20th annual Police Ball and Charity Gala, a Red Carpet Affair, on March 23. This year the event supported Take Stock in Children, a nonprofit organization that provides unique opportunities for deserv ing low-income youth to escape the cycle of poverty through education. Those who attended the Ball were escorted from their vehicle to the red car pet runway. After a brief stop for a photoop at the sponsor wall, they got the chance to make a grand entry Hollywood-style, complete with a spotlight and flashes from a team of photographers. Over 250 members of the community attended the event, despite bad weather, to help raise funds for the worthy cause. As a result of the events successful fundrais ing efforts, with an additional contribution from the Lake City Police Department, a check for $5,000 was presented by Chief Argatha Gilmore to Take Stock in Children. Executive Director Mike Lee with Florida Gateway College received the check and announced that they would match this donation with an additional $5,000. The Police Ball also serves as a plat form to show community support for its law enforcement officers. Members of the Lake City Police Department attended and received recognition for their hard work and service to the community. I look forward to this event every year, said Gilmore. It is an exciting opportunity to show our officers how much the com munity truly appreciates their service, and at the same time raise funds and aware ness for such a great cause as Take Stock in Children. In addition to recognizing the members of LCPD as a whole, Gilmore also present ed the prestigious Commander-In-Chiefs award, the highest honor given annually by the chief within the department. The recipient of this years award was Officer Mike Lee. At the end of 2011, Lee was asked to take the reins of the Crime Prevention Unit and help renovate the position. Lee received the official designation of Crime Prevention Practitioner from Attorney General Pam Bondi in 2012. In the past year, Lee was instrumental in the creation of the Police Explorer Program for LCPD. Lee also developed a variety of new busi ness training programs such as Robbery Prevention and Workplace Violence. As a result of Lees active grant-seeking efforts, funds were secured to help purchase a Firearms Training Simulator, purchase CPR Training Equipment for the Lake City Fire Department, provide reduced-cost car seats to the community, and provide mate rials for several of LCPDs educational programs. Lee also serves the depart ment as an Assistant Public Information Officer, a Certified Instructor, and as Law Enforcement Liaison to the Community Traffic Safety Team at the county and state level. This is an officer that I know I can give a vision, an idea, even if it is scrambled and not all there and he will make it hap pen, said Gilmore of Lee. He will provide a finished product that is exactly what we need. He assists in several areas within the department but will never say no when ever asked for help. Gilmore also took a moment to thank the LCPD Ball Committee and its chair woman, Audre Washington, for their hard work in making the event a success. This event was made possible thanks to the contribution of several title spon sors, including: Reed Roofing/Pastor L.R. Leguire, American Pawn, Peoples State Bank, Rountree Moore Automotive Group, and New Beginnings Restoration Church. Additional table sponsors included First Federal Bank of Florida, Lake City Medical Center, Pam Beauchamp/Remax Professionals, Corrections Corporation of America, Night Visions Security, Dees Funeral Home, and Potash Corp./PCS. Finally, LCPD would like to thank Florida Gateway College for providing the facility for the event, Hunter Printing for providing printed materials including the Sponsor Wall, and First Street Music and Sound for providing lighting to give this event a true Hollywood feel. I look forward to our next ball, which will be in March 2014, said Gilmore, who said she hopes to make the next event an even greater success.

Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. One by one, students walked slowly past the food court in the Student Activities Center on the Louisville campus and waited their turns to sign the makeshift 3-by-5 foot poster of injured basketball player Kevin Ware. Meant as a tribute to Ware, it could also have been a giant get well card for a school torn between despair for his devastating injury and excitement for one of the best sports days in school history. Ware broke his right leg in two places Sunday, a hor-rifying injury that inspired the Cardinals to beat Duke and earn their second con-secutive trip to the Final Four. Hours later, the Louisville womens team upset defend-ing champion Baylor and 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner. Still, amid the celebration, students, faculty and fans couldnt get Ware out of their minds and they didnt seem to want to. It was hard to look at, freshman Ishmail Wheeler said of Wares injury after signing the poster. I felt for him. All around the city, fans expressed their mixed emotions. Ware had surgery late Sunday and remained at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis on Monday. The win triggered a celebration on campus, where students hollered out of windows and honked horns while driving around the university. The big party was downtown Louisville, on Broadway, where stu-dents and fans tied up traf-fic for hours. By JIM OCONNELLAssociated PressDoug McDermott made Creighton history last sea-son when he was selected as the schools first player on the AP All-America team. Now hes done it again. The 6-foot-8 junior forward, the second-leading scorer in Division I, was a repeat selection, the 51st player to earn the honor in consecutive seasons. Its pretty crazy. I couldnt expect to have as good a year as I did, said McDermott, who averaged 23.1 points and 7.5 rebounds while shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 49.7 per-cent from 3-point range. Trey Burke of Michigan and Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown tied as the leading vote-getters for first team, while Victor Oladipo of Indiana and Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga were the other players selected. McDermott, who led the Bluejays to the Missouri Valley Conference champi-onship with a title-game win over Wichita State, wasnt shocked that he was the second repeat selection in as many years, follow-ing Jared Sullinger of Ohio State.

For details, call Mike Ferrell at 209-1662.Q From staff reports By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comWhen former Columbia High softball player Stephanie Pilkington had her college decision in front of her, South Alabama University wasnt her first choice. Pilkington initially committed to Florida International University, but once she learned what the Jaguars had to offer, Pilkington switched her commitment. The decision is paying off for the freshman. South Alabama reached the Top 25 in the nation this week and comes in at No. 13 in RPI rank, which will help the Jaguars when it comes time for postseason play. Even Pilkington didnt expect what she was in for when joining the Jaguars in her first season. I knew that we would be solid, because the team won the conference last year, Pilkington said. I knew that we had competi-tive pitching, because our coach always says that we have two aces. I just didnt realize how much better we had the opportunity to be. Pilkington said that a couple of games helped the Jaguars see just how much potential they had. South Alabama currently is 29-7. We started off pretty well, but when we played Alabama and hung with the No. 1 team in the country at the time, we started to realize just how competitive we could be as a team, she said. We realized that we can compete with any team in the nation. Individually, Pilkington has set her goals high and will be the first to admit shes not pleased with her numbers this season. But as a freshman batting .245 and tied for the team lead with nine stolen bases, shes not off to a bad start. My wing feels great, but Im learning the differ-ence between high school and college is you have to enter each at bat with an approach, Pilkington said. Thats where Ive got to work to improve. My big-gest asset to the team right now is base running, which is not what I want it to be, but Im helping the team any way I can. But Pilkington has never been about individual acco-lades and is looking more toward a team goal for the rest of the year. As a team, we want to make it to the World Series, she said. Beating LSU this week put things in perspective and we know we can compete. Pilkington said that theres a group of athletes still in Lake City playing for her former team and she offered a few words of advice for them. All I can say is to continue to work hard, Pilkington said. I thought I knew what hard work was until I got to college and it took on a totally different meaning. We wake up at 5:30 a.m. to hit the weight room and dont stop until 8 p.m. at night. Its a challenge, but I enjoy it. And for those loved ones she doesnt see as often. I miss them and think about them every day, Pilkington said. I definitely miss the home cooking.Photos courtesy of Shelli ShoupABOVE: Former Columbia High player Stephanie Pilkington takes her defensive stance while playing for South Alabama Univer sity.

By DOUG FEINBERGAssociated PressBrittney Griners unparalleled college career is over, earlier than expected and without another NCAA championship. Her place among the all-time best is secure. From her powerful blocked shots to highlight-reel dunks, Griners domi-nance on both ends of the court was simply unequaled as she drew in new fans to the womens game. They include LeBron James, who said he met her when she was a senior in high school in Houston and has been keeping tabs on Griner ever since. Shes awesome. Its not fair. Its like Wilt (Chamberlain), James said. Shes out there like Wilt. Thats what would be my imagination, if I was able to see Wilt live and what he was doing to those guys back in the day, thats what shes doing to these girls right now. Shes too big. Shes too strong. James said he would have loved to see Griner play against Lisa Leslie in her prime. Griner was floored when told of the praise by her idol. Definitely happy for the King to say that about me, she said. Him being one of my favorite players, for him to compare me to Wilt and Lisa, its humbling. Griner had one up on Chamberlain as she did win a national championship. She just couldnt get a sec-ond one as the Lady Bears lost to Louisville 82-81 on Sunday night in one of the greatest upsets in womens NCAA tournament history. Winning only one title might be the only knock on Griner. Still, many think she belongs on the Mount Rushmore of womens college basketball.

DEAR ABBY: My hair falls nearly to my waist, and I go to great lengths to maintain it and keep it free of split ends. Many of my friends, both male and female, have grown out their hair over the years and donated it to cancer charities. While I think its a beauti-ful act of selflessness, I have never felt the calling to donate my hair. I have recently been criticized for wanting to keep my long hair for myself and have been called selfish and a hypo-crite. Abby, cancer runs in my family. I donate money and volunteer for my local Relay for Life every year. When I explain this to my attackers -some of them good friends -they look the other way and say Im horrible because I wont cut my hair and give it to those in need. How do I get my message across to these people without sound-ing defensive or snob-by? -RAPUNZEL IN MICHIGAN DEAR RAPUNZEL: I think I detect a twinge of jealousy in the good friends who imply you are being selfish or hypocritical for not donating your lovely locks. It would be neither defensive nor snobby to smile and reply: We all must decide for ourselves how we will support the charities that are important to us. I have chosen to donate in other ways. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have been with my boyfriend, Keoni, for five years. We have a healthy rela-tionship. However, when we go out to the grocery store, the doctors office or the mall, women constant-ly question his ethnicity, which is Hawaiian. Then, without fail, theyll proceed to tell him (and me) how handsome, beautiful or gorgeous he is. Keoni does nothing to make me feel less than pretty myself, but these frequent comments from strangers have started to make me feel insecure about my own appear-ance. How do I accept these compliments without resentment? -KEONIS GIRLFRIEND IN FLORIDA DEAR GIRLFRIEND: What may be upsetting you is that these women ask your boyfriend inap-propriate questions and appear to be coming on to him. Face it, your boyfriend is exotic. If you were in Hawaii, he wouldnt be exotic -YOU might be. The next time this happens and someone raves about his good looks, remember that Keonis with you, not her. But if shes pushy, suggest she move to Hawaii and get lei-ed. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Are hugs the new handshake? The two most recent examples were when I went to meet with my mothers minister to arrange her funeral. I had never met the man, but he wanted to hug upon meet-ing me. Yesterday, I saw a new eye doctor for the first time. As I was leaving, I put out my hand to shake his. He said, Oh, I like to hug! When I stepped back and told him, Im not a huggy person, he seemed offended. Any sugges-tions? -STANDOFFISH SUE DEAR SUE: The minister may have thought that having just lost your moth-er, you could have used the hug. Many people wel-come that kind of comfort. Personally, I agree that the eye doctors behavior was presumptuous. If you continue to patronize him, my recommendation is to stand out of reach. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep an open mind. Refrain from making an impulsive move. Stick close to home and keep a close eye on what and who is most important to you. Romance is in the stars, but emotional problems will surface if jealousy pre-vails. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pick up information and study your findings before you make a move or contact anyone in a posi-tion of authority. Running your plans by someone you are close to will help you make the right deci-sion. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take part in events that will increase your chance of making new acquaintances or busi-ness connections. Dont be afraid to show off your skills, but refrain from making a financial dona-tion. Its what you do phys-ically that will impress. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Follow through. Dont let anyone stand in your way. Believe in who you are and what you are capa-ble of accomplishing. Your memory and expertise will not let you down. Refuse to let an emotional matter slow you down. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Youll stand out in a crowd. Take any opportunity you get to show off your tal-ent. Take care of personal responsibilities quickly so you dont miss a chance to network and collaborate with people in key posi-tions. Love and romance look promising. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a closer look at your relationships with the people you deal with daily. Protect your money from anyone you feel may be in your life to take advantage of what you have to offer. Pay more attention to self-improvement. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Hasty decisions regarding partnership mat-ters will lead to regrets. Sit back and observe what everyone around you is doing. If you base your next move on pertinent facts, you will expand your awareness of the possibili-ties that are within reach. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Size up your situation and make your next move with authority. A power-ful presence will result in a much better chance to reform, resolve or imple-ment what you want. Your vision will be crystal clear. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick close to home. Fixing up your place or getting to the bottom of any situation involving the people you live with will bring positive results. Dont let an out-sider upset what you are trying to achieve. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emotional matters between you and a friend, relative or neigh-bor will escalate if you are too pushy or give in to the pressure being put on you. Keep your distance and concentrate on your responsibilities and job-related expectations. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Revisit old ideas, friends and hobbies. Make alterations to fit todays fast-paced, technology-driv-en world, and youll turn something from your past into an auspicious new beginning. Dont shy away from something because you dont know where to start. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen to your inner voice, and you will know how to make the most of a potential opportunity. Contracts, settlements or any pending problems can be dealt with and put behind you. New adven-tures prevail once youve cleared your timetable. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

By RONALD BLUM Associated Press NEW YORK Alex Rodriguez stood in the Yankee Stadium tunnel, just in front of the entrance to the home clubhouse. He was willing to answer questions for the first time since hip surgery in January, but was posi tioned so he could make a quick getaway if he wanted to stop responding. I love when all these people say, You cant do this. You cant do that. Youre done. Youre old, he explained before New Yorks opener against Boston on Monday. Its a great challenge to prove all you guys wrong and every one wrong. Three months shy of his 38th birthday, Rodriguez has transformed from three-time Most Valuable Player to most touchy sub ject. Hes owed $114 million in the remaining five years of his record $275 million, 10-year contract, and hes viewed by many Yankees fans and even some in the teams management as a drain on the clubs payroll. And that was before a January report in Miami New Times alleging he received performanceenhancing drugs from a Florida anti-aging clinic. Making his first pub lic comments since the Jan. 16 operation on his left hip, Rodriguez said he has heard the same sched ule for his return that sur geon Dr. Bryan Kelly made public: sometime around the All-Star break. When I found out after the season was over about the big tear in my left hip, it was a bit of a relief to realize and understand how you ended last year, he said. Once its mended and Im back to being 100 percent, theres no reason why I cant play at a very high level. Rodriguez hasnt played a full season since 2007. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 2013 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 6BSPORTSJUMP Queen Serta Perfect Sleeper Firm Mattress HWY 41 SOUTH 1 Block South of Hwy 90 (Next to Wendys} 754-4654 BLOWOUT Mattress Sale! $ 299 Lowest Prices!

Its not too surprising because I approach the game the same every time, he said. I knew I could kick it into gear and have a special season. Its tough to do what I did with the defenses I faced. I got a lot more attention. I found ways to expand my game. I was really pleased. So was his coach, and father. Im just really proud of the season that he was able to put together, Greg McDermott said. On one hand he was able to con sistently put up incredible numbers on a team that won a lot of games. At the end of the day I know that was most important to Doug. Burke and Porter both received 62 first-team votes and 319 points from the same 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Voting was on a 5-3-1 basis and was completed before the NCAA tournament. Oladipo got 58 firstteam votes and 306 points. McDermott had 44 firstteam votes and 279 points, one more than Olynyks total points. The Gonzaga junior got 47 first-team votes. Burke, a 6-0 sophomore point guard, had an impres sive individual season while running a team that at times had four freshmen on the court with him. Burke averaged 19.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists and shot 40.1 percent on 3-point attempts. He is Michigans fifth AllAmerica and first since Chris Webber in 1993. Every now and then you think about individual acco lades, and that was defi nitely a goal of mine com ing into my freshman year, Burke said. I didnt know it would be this quick, but it happens. Porter, a 6-8 sophomore, is a smooth, solid forward whose coach describes his efforts this way: Otto was Otto. Ive defined it all year probably without say ing it in that he is a selfless player, in that all of his actions, all of his thoughts are on how can he help our team win, Hoyas coach John Thompson III said. What does show up on Porters stat line is 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while shooting 42.7 percent from behind the 3-point line. He is Georgetowns sixth AllAmerica and first since Allen Iverson in 1996. Oladipo is Indianas first All-America since A.J. Guyton in 2000 and the eighth overall. He was impressed to be joining the likes of Scott May, Kent Benson, Isiah Thomas, Steve Alford and Calbert Cheaney. Im kind of speechless to be with the great names in college basketball, the NBA, in basketball history, Oladipo, a 6-5 junior swing man, said. To be put in a sentence with them only makes me want to work harder. That is one of the traits Hoosiers coach Tom Crean loves about Oladipo, who averaged 13.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals while shooting 59.9 percent from the field and 44.3 per cent on 3s. I see somebody who con tinues to get better every step of the way at Indiana, Crean said. I think when you have a young man who puts in that kind of time and that kind of work and cares about his teammates, all the outside stuff doesnt matter. Its on the court that does. Olynyk, a native of Canada, became an AllAmerica with a junior season that saw the Bulldogs reach No. 1 for the first time in school history. The 7-footer averaged 17.5 points and 7.2 rebounds while shoot ing 65.2 percent from the field. He was recognized as much this for his long hair as his inside game. ASSOCIATED PRESS Washington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper hits his second home run of the game in the fourth inning against the Miami Marlins in Washington on Monday. Associated Press WASHINGTON Bryce Harper homered in his first two at-bats, Stephen Strasburg retired 19 bat ters in a row at one stretch, and the defending NL East champion Washington Nationals opened the sea son with a 2-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Monday. Strasburg went seven innings, matching his career high, and allowed three hits. Reigning NL Rookie of the Year Harper, a 20-yearold outfielder, hit solo shots over the out-of-town score board in right-center field off Ricky Nolasco in the first and fourth innings. New closer Rafael Soriano got the save. Tigers 4, Twins 2 MINNEAPOLIS Justin Verlanders five shutout innings at frosty Target Field held up for Detroit, and the defending American League champion Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins. Phil Coke got the last two outs for the first save by the Tigers closer committee. Prince Fielder had two hits and an RBI to help spoil Vance Worleys first start for the Twins, who left 12 runners on. White Sox 1, Royals 0 CHICAGO Chris Sale outpitched James Shields, Tyler Flowers homered and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals in the season opener. A dominant performance by Sale and Flowers drive leading off the fifth against Shields were just enough to beat a team thats trying to make a big jump after fin ishing with a losing record 17 of the past 18 seasons. Sale showed the form that made him a 17-game winner and an All-Star in his first season as a starter. He allowed just seven hits and struck out seven while walking one. Dodgers 4, Giants 0 LOS ANGELES Clayton Kershaw launched his first career home run to break a scoreless tie in the eighth inning, then finished off a four-hitter that led the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants. Kershaw struck out seven, walked none and retired World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval on a ground er to end it. The former Cy Young winner began the day as a career .146 batter with only one extra-base hit in 261 at-bats. But he sent the first pitch from George Kontos over the center-field wall. Kershaw became the first pitcher in the majors to homer on opening day since Joe Magrane of St. Louis in 1988, and the first Dodgers pitcher to do it since Don Drysdale in 1965. Brewers 5, Rockies 4 MILWAUKEE Jonathan Lucroy hit a sac rifice fly in the 10th inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a victory over Colorado, ruining the first game for new Rockies man ager Walt Weiss. Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally when he stole second after he was hit by a pitch with one out. Adam Ottavino then issued an intentional walk to Ryan Braun and lost Aramis Ramirez to another walk before Lucroy ended the game with a fly ball. Mets 11, Padres 2 NEW YORK Jonathon Niese stepped nicely into his new role as No. 1 start er for the Mets, and Collin Cowgill capped a success ful New York debut with a grand slam in a rout of the San Diego Padres. Marlon Byrd had a pair of RBI singles. Red Sox 8, Yankees 2 NEW YORK Jon Lester and the Boston Red Sox got off to a quick start, giving new manager John Farrell a win over the barely recog nizable New York Yankees. Newcomer Shane Victorino led a revamped Red Sox lineup with three RBIs and rookie Jackie Bradley Jr. walked three times and scored twice in his big league debut. Harper goes deep twice to lead Nats
