While severe weather was not expected overnight, there is a 70 percent chance today of heavy rain and thun-derstorms as the day pro-gresses. Lake City residents can expect severe thunder-storms with the possibility of isolated tornadoes and golf ball-sized hail, the Weather Service said. Columbia County Emergency Operations warned in a news release that there could be 2 to 3 inches of rain and wind speeds exceeding 60 mph. Heavy rain could cause flood-ing in low-lying areas. This system is not dissimilar from the pattern that moved through two weeks ago, the news release reads. Storms ripped through Columbia County on March 23, leaving behind wide-spread power outages and an estimated $500,000 worth of damage to homes and busi-nesses, according to early estimates from county offi-cials. On the Monday following the storm, 19 families remained in the care of local disaster relief services after their homes were badly damaged. Two face meth charges By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comTwo Lake City men were arrested Tuesday and face drug-related charges for allegedly consuming methamphet-amine in a local motel room, after motel patrons reported a strong chemi-cal odor com-ing from one of the rooms.

State budget getting actionBy GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Putting aside some of the acrimony of the past few years, Florida lawmakers on Wednesday took their first votes in favor of rival $74 billion spending plans. It was clear that pumping an extra $4 billion into the state budget some of which was sprinkled around to home-town projects, state worker pay raises and more money for public schools had helped remove some of the rancor of the last few years. Obviously, I think its easier having a little light at the end of the tunnel, said Rep. Seth McKeel, R-Lakeland and House budget chief. The main Senate budget panel approved its $74.3 billion budget swiftly and with little debate. That contrasted with the House where Democrats on the main House budget panel voted against that chambers $74.4 billion proposal. Democrats are still fuming over top Republicans continued opposition to using federal aid to expand Medicaid to cover up to 1 million residents now without health insurance. The Senate Organ donor campaign under wayBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County Tax Collectors Office has teamed up with Donate Life Florida to remind Floridians about the importance of registering as organ, tis-sue and eye donors. The Tax Collectors Office is where local residents get and renew their driver licenses and state identification cards. It collects local property taxes, sells hunting and fishing licenses and issues business tax receipts. April is observed as Donate Life month, and the office is participating in the event for the sec-ond con-secutive month as part of the Donate Life Challenge. The offices involve-ment last year, in conjunction with other tax col-lector offices around the state, and the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, led to more than 66,000 new donor registrations. Tax Collector Ronnie Brannon said through the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2012, the tax collectors office han-dled 157,815 transactions in the Lake City office and 3,945 transactions at the Fort White office, for a total of 161,800 transactions.

AROUND FLORIDA Couple wont be charged for pot PARRISH Manatee County prosecutors have declined to press charges against a 64-year-old man who cultivated marijuana plants to treat his wifes illness. Robert Jordans home was raided by law enforce-ment in February, after receiving a tip that there were two marijuana plants growing in their back yard. Jordans wife, 62-yearold Cathy, has used mari-juana for years to control the symptoms of Lou Gehrigs disease. The Herald-Tribune reports that the State Attorneys Office announced Tuesday that it believes a medical neces-sity defense would hold up in court. The couple has also asked state lawmakers in Tallahassee to pass a medi-cal marijuana law.Woman arrested after 911 calls DAYTONA BEACH Police arrested a woman who repeatedly called 911 to report a burglary at her home. Daytona Beach police say 43-year-old Dedra Jones called dispatchers to report that her home had been broken into this week. But when police didnt arrive quickly enough for her, she called again. And again. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Jones now faces charges of abusing the 911 system. Records show Jones told dispatchers she knew who took her stuff, that she was going to the suspects house and that she needed to talk to a supervisor. The dispatcher told her after the seventh call that shed be arrested if she kept calling 911. An arriving officer says she ignored him because she was calling 911 for an eighth time.Boy, 7, mauled by two bulldogs CALLAWAY A 7-yearold Florida Panhandle boy is in the hospital after being mauled by two bull-dogs.

The shooting happened Wednesday morning inside the building which also houses a Comerica Bank. The Palm Beach Post reports the couple appar-ently had an ongoing domestic dispute.

But an attorney on Tuesday described Paul James Szaraz as a prep-per who was preparing to protect himself. The Tampa Bay Times reports the cache found at Szarazs 12-acre resi-dence during a March 22 raid included 12 AK-47-type rifles, a fully auto-matic MP44 assault rifle, a German-built MG08/15 machine gun, a .50-caliber sniper rifle, four .45-caliber pistols, scores of AK-47 magazines and more than 17,000 rounds of ammuni-tion.

Hebrews 12:2 Leno to leave NBCs Tonight Show NEW YORK N BC on Wednesday announced its long-rumored switch in late night, replacing Jay Leno at the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon and mov-ing the iconic franchise back to New York. Fallon will take over in about a year, the switch coinciding with NBCs Winter Olympics coverage next year. Veteran Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels also will take over as executive producer of Tonight. NBC made no announcement on who would replace Fallon at the 12:35 a.m. Late Night slot, although Seth Meyers of Saturday Night Live is considered a strong candidate. The change at Tonight, the longest-running and most popular late-night talk show, had been widely reported but not confirmed by the network until Wednesday. NBC reportedly just wrapped up negotia-tions with Fallon on a contract exten-sion. Steve Burke, chief executive officer of NBC Universal, said the network is purposefully making the move when Leno is still at the top of the ratings, just as when Leno replaced Johnny Carson at Tonight in 1992. Jimmy Fallon is a unique talent and this is his time, Burke said. Leno, in a statement, offered his congratulations to Fallon. I hope youre as lucky as me and hold on to the job until youre the old guy, he said. If you need me, Ill be at the garage. Fallon said: Im really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow. NBC has been quietly building a new studio for Fallon at its Rockefeller Center headquarters. Tonight began in New York in the 1950s, but Carson moved it to California in 1972.

March of Dimes walk set Saturday, April 13 GALLERY: Local artists will have place to display Continued From Page 1Afrom the Lake City Community Redevelopment Agency for about $30,000, including start-up costs and monthly rental expenses. A lot of people dont understand art or they dont know how it is done, Van Arsdall said. We hope to bring art culture and education to Lake City by offering classes and the chance to purchase original art from local artists at a reasonable price. At the gallery, guests will be able to view art in all different forms photography, woodwork, oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolors, pastels, jewelry and more. The Art League hopes to provide classes in all medi-ums represented. Interested artists and members of the Art League can lease display space in the gallery. Prices vary depending on the amount of space used. However, all works of art are juried by a panel of 10 judges before being accepted for display, accord-ing to Art League Treasurer Mike Helvey. The white building seems much bigger on the inside when a visi-tor steps through the doors. The space has been divided into a South Gallery, an East Gallery, a North Gallery, Featured Artist of the Month, a family room and a small item room. When the set-up is complete, Van Arsdall estimates the gallery will feature 30 to 35 artists. Also, a Junior Art League room will be established in the classroom to showcase the art of members young-er than 18 years old. The small item room may eventually be converted into a retail area. Van Arsdall said the gallery intends to sell art supplies, too. In the family room, a couch and two chairs will allow guests to sit in a home-like surrounding to imagine how the art would look on their own walls. Its been a dream of the Art League to have a gallery for years, and we can barely believe it is becoming a reality, Van Arsdall said. Weve been working steadily for about a year, and finally we can see our dream come true. The Art League has been meeting for the past nine years, holding its first meeting with the intention of bringing the visual arts to Lake City. The gallery has become an exten-sion of that goal. We have a lot of talented artists in our group, and weve largely had to go out of town to showcase their work, Van Arsdall said. The gallery will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Art League member Sue Hall will curate the exhibits, along with volunteers. Despite opening the citys only art gallery, the Art League intends to continue to show its work in the local libraries, Florida Gateway College, Lake City Haven Hospice and Cottage Casual. For the grand opening and the first month of business, the featured artist will be John Rice from Live Oak. For more information on the gallery, including the price of art classes and wall space, contact the Gateway Art Gallery at (386) 752-5229. DONORS: Drive under wayContinued From Page 1Ahave the specific number of Columbia County residents who signed on to be organ donors. He said tax collectors office employees asked customers whether they wanted to be organ donors during those transactions. Were required by statute to ask, Brannon said, noting its as simple as checking a box for office employees, for people who want to sign up as organ donors. Our organizations role in organ donation dates back three years when we first began issuing driver license, by asking all driver license customers, Do you want to be an organ donor? Since then, we have devel-oped a partnership with Donate Life Florida and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and now 98 percent of Floridas donor registra-tions are generated through driver license services. According to statistics provided by the office, there are more than 4,500 Floridians awaiting organ transplants and more than 118,000 patients on the nationwide list. Brannon said he thinks its important to participate in the Donate Life Florida campaign. Brannon, 58, said he has been an organ donor since he was 16 years old, when he got his first drivers license. I think its a way to save lives, he said. When you die, your organs can go to someone who needs them. I think its an opportunity to help prolong someone elses life. Donate Life Florida also helped tax collectors by printing this years Florida Driver handbook. The official driver license handbook cost was handled by the Donate Life Florida, Brannon said. The Tax Collectors State Association went to the Donate Life organization and convinced them to print the Florida Driver hand-book as a public service to the citizens of Florida and to get the word out. The reason this was done is because the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles stopped printing the driver license handbook to save money. To register as an organ donor: Q Go to Donate Life Floridas Website at www.DonateLifeFlorida.com; Q When renewing driver license online at www.GoRenew.com; or Q By calling Donate Life Florida at 1-877-357-4273. has come up with an alternative plan, but its unclear if the House would go along. My main concern is not so much whats in the budget, its whats not in the budget, said Rep. Perry Thurston, a Democrat from Fort Lauderdale. House Republicans chided Democrats for the vote, especially since their budget includes more than $1 billion for schools and a $1,400 pay raise for state workers. It is disappointing that House Democrats chose to focus on one area of disagreement in this bud-get rather than show their support for the numerous funding increases that they agree are needed in our state, said House Majority Leader Steve Precourt, R-Orlando in a writ-ten statement. One of Gov. Rick Scotts top priorities has not been budgeted: eliminating the 6 percent sales tax charged on equipment purchased by manufacturers. BUDGET: Lawmakers working quickly on plans Continued From Page 1A ARRESTS: Two men jailed on drug charges Continued From Page 1Ainto the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $9,000 bond. According to a county Sheriffs Office report, Deputy Slade McCardle and three other depu-ties went to the Jasmine Garden Inn in reference to a possible methamphet-amine lab. The clerk on duty told them a customer came to the office and said he smelled a strong chemical odor coming from one of the rooms and he was concerned illegal drugs were being produced. The clerk gave deputies a key to the room and requested they check to make sure illegal drugs werent being produced. When McCardle approached the room, he found Johnstone standing next to the door and Cone inside. Cone said there was nothing illegal in the room, but McCardle reported that he could smell a strong odor and was con-cerned there was an active methamphetamine lab in the room. McCardle said he found items used for smoking methamphetamine in the room and the items had residue inside them. Cone told deputies there were no items in the room that were used to make methamphetamine, but he and Johnstone told anoth-er deputy they had been smoking methamphet-amine out of a glass pipe just before the deputies arrived. The deputies field-tested the pipe and its residue returned positive for meth-amphetamine.
A s the nation has focused on the Supreme Court hearings on the consti-tutionality of same sex marriage, news from the state of Indiana could prove far more important regarding the nations future. The Indiana Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled unanimously, 5-0, that the states school voucher pro-gram -signed into law in 2011 and the most expansive school voucher program in the nation -does not violate the states constitution. Those who challenged the law argued that the voucher program is unconstitutional because it allows public funds to be used for religious education. Not so, said the court. The voucher goes to the families, not the schools. It is the parents who decide how to spend it. Why do I draw connection between the U.S. Supreme Courts review of same-sex marriage and this voucher decision in Indiana? And why do I suggest that the Indiana decision may be more important to the nations future than whatever the Supreme Court decides on same-sex marriage? Same-sex marriage sits before the Supreme Court today because of the dramatic change in public opin-ion over recent years regarding the legitimacy and morality of same-sex marriage and homosexual relations. General public opinion is far more accepting today of both than it has been in the past. What has driven this change?One obvious place to look is the direct generational correlation regarding acceptance of same-sex marriage. Younger Americans are far more accepting of these values than older Americans. According to the latest survey from the Pew Research Center, approval of same-sex marriage among those born between 1928-1945 is 31 percent; 1946-1964, 38 percent; 1965-1980, 49 percent; and after 1980, 70 percent. So it seems quite reasonable to conclude that the last half centurys systematic purge of religion and traditional values from our public schools has produced a new genera-tion of Americans with values differ-ent from those of their parents and grandparents. In 1962, the Supreme Court found state-sponsored school prayer unconstitutional. Subsequently, the Supreme Court found uncon-stitutional: posting of the Ten Commandments in public schools (1980), public schools setting aside time for private or voluntary prayer (1985), and performance of reli-gious activity at school promotional and graduation ceremonies (1992). The rationale behind all these decisions was supposedly to pre-serve and protect religious liberty in our public schools. But this is not at all what has been happening. The result has not been value-free public schools that just teach reading, writing and arithmetic. The result has been to purge traditional religious values from our public schools and replace them with different values: secular humanism. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, all states are somehow involved in sex education for public school children. The National Education Association, the nations largest teachers union, thought it relevant to its mission to issue a press statement about the same-sex mar-riage cases currently before the Supreme Court. According to the NEAs statement on Californias Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act: Proposition 8 and DOMA (both of which support traditional mar-riage) arent just unconstitutional, they contradict American values of fairness, inclusion and freedom for all. So somehow it is fair and constitutional, in the view of the NEA, that our schools not be permitted to teach right and wrong, as Christians have understood them from the Bible for a few thousand years, while it is fair and free to teach secular humanism in their place. Thanks to former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, who signed into law the Indiana voucher program, and a sane and sober court in Indiana, Indiana helps pave the way for a new birth of education freedom in America, in which parents can choose where to send their children to school. No longer will kids be captive to left-wing brainwashing in Indiana public schools. Hopefully, soon this will be the case nationwide.

We believe strong newspapers build strong communities Newspapers get things done! Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers. This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman T he U.S. Senate should follow through on its nonbinding vote last month to repeal the medical device tax, and junk this egregious threat to health care innovation and the economy. The 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices such as artificial limbs, braces, pacemakers and CAT scans was adopted as part of the Affordable Health Care Act. It ignores the financial realities of the medical products industry. As weve pointed out before, the tax would be collected on gross sales, not profits. A survey found that the medical device industry only makes a profit of 3.5 percent to 4 percent. This tax would dangerously shrink that margin. Some companies would likely end up owing more in taxes than they generate in profits. This would be devastating to new companies, which may take five years or more to become profitable. John Ray, executive director of Florida Medical Manufacturers Consortium, says the tax would be par-ticularly damaging to the states rapidly growing medi-cal device industry because 85 percent of the states firms employ fewer than 50 workers. They dont gener-ate the kind of profits needed to cover the extra cost. This financial penalty will inevitably result in fewer jobs and less investment in research. A Hudson Institute researcher estimated the industr y could lose 43,000 jobs, or 10 percent of its workfo rce. Florida is second in the nation in medical device companies, with more than 538 device manufacturers and hundreds more component makers.... Not only will this tax wound the economy, it will undermine health care advancements. By jeopardizing companies return on investment, the tax almost surely will discourage medical device research. Benjamin Zycher, an economist with the conservative Pacific Research Institute, estimates the tax would cause the loss of about $2 billion in research and devel-opment each year. He calculated that the resulting loss of innovation will cost about 1 million people their lives a year. The accuracy of such projections, of course, can be disputed, but making it more costly for companies to develop and produce medical devices is certainly not going to encourage research investment. The rationale for the tax was that the expansion of health care would lead to more devices being sold and more industry revenue. But industry officials point out most of the previously uninsured individuals who will receive coverage under the law will be young, not likely customers for artificial knees or pacemakers. The Senates vote for repeal was overwhelming, 7920, with even liberals such as Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren joining the majority. It was largely meaningless because it was passed as an amendment to the Democrats budget, which has no chance of passing the House. The Republican House voted last year to repeal the tax. Though majorities in both bodies know the dangers of this tax, its demise is far from assured. Democrats want a replacement tax to make up for the estimated $30 billion it would raise over 10 years to fund Obamacare. They should recognize this industry-crippling tax w ill likely do far more damage to Americas citizens, ec onomy and health care system than that and jettison it Excise medical device taxVoucher ruling supports religious freedom ANOTHER VIEW LETTERS POLICY Letters to the Editor should be typed or neatly written and double spaced.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org Q Tampa Bay Times T he Congressional Research Service caused a mild flap in the nations capital when it disclosed that the country spent nearly $3.7 million last year support-ing its four living ex-presidents and one presidential widow. Ex-presidents receive an annual pension of $200,000, another $96,000 for staff, and the govern-ment picks up the cost of travel, office space, staff benefits and com-munications. The Secret Service protection that stays with them is covered under a separate budget. The Associated Press noted thats a pittance compared with the tril-lions the government spends each year. But the news service indulged in todays obligatory handwringing when it comes to federal spending: Still, with ex-presidents able to command eye-popping sums for books, speaking engagements and the like in their post-White House years, the report raises questions about whether the U.S. should pro-vide such generous subsidies at a time when spending cuts and the deficit are forcing lawmakers and federal agencies to seek ways to cut back. Once this wasnt a problem. Presidents tended to be old and worn out when they left office and, in any case, they didnt receive a pension, not until Harry Truman left office basically broke. John Quincy Adams went back to the U.S. House; William Howard Taft became chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, but the range of second careers is limited. Unlike retired ballplayers, decorum pre-vents former presidents from open-ing restaurants, doing card shows or greeting casino customers. There are 12 presidential libraries, with the younger Bushs soon to make 13. The law requires the ex-president to raise the money to build the library and then the National Archives takes over run-ning it. The cost of those libraries has been rising steadily. George H.W. Bushs library in College Station, Texas, cost $104.7 mil-lion in todays dollars; Clintons in Little Rock, Ark., $180 million; and George W. Bush raised an estimat-ed $500 million for his in Dallas. President Barack Obama will be a special case because he will be relatively young 55 when he leaves office. Writing books and giving speeches is fine, and you can only play so much golf. It seems that our ex-presidents are something of a wasted resource. We should ask more of them.

R Gigolos Gigolos ASSOCIATED PRESSTexas Rangers Yu Darvish delivers a pitch against the Houston Astros in the fifth inning of a baseball game on Tuesday in Houston. Darvish pitched e ight and two-thirds perfect innings before giving up a hit to Astros Marwin Gonzalez in the Rangers 7-0 win.Darvish nearly perfect, Kirkman relieves lateBy KRISTIE RIEKENAssociated PressHOUSTON Yu Darvish saw the ball skip between his shins, dash-ing his chance at perfec-tion. Immediately, several Texas Rangers came to the mound to console him. I think my teammates were more disappointed than I was, he said through a translator. Darvish was one out from a perfect game when Marwin Gonzalez grounded a clean single through the pitchers legs, and Texas beat the Houston Astros 7-0 on Tuesday night. Lake City native Michael Kirkman relieved Darvish after Gonzalezs hit. Jose Altuve followed with a sin-gle before Kirkman fanned pinch-hitter J.D. Martinez to end it. Darvish has never thrown a complete game in the majors. The celebrated righthander from Japan struck out a career-high 14 and was in complete control before Gonzalez smacked the first pitch up the mid-dle. Darvish was unable to get his glove down in time and the ball skittered into center field well beyond a desperate dive by shortstop Elvis Andrus. At that moment, one thought went through Darvishs mind. I can now go back to the dugout, he deadpanned. Even if I got the complete game today, its not going to translate to three or five wins. Its a win. A wins a win. Darvish smiled and put up his hands almost like, Oh well, it happens. Texas infielders quickly came to the mound, and manager Ron Washington joined them. I didnt want to be the last out, Gonzalez said. I was trying to look for a good pitch to hit and put it in play. Thats all I was thinking. Washington patted Darvish on the chest and then signaled for a reliev-er. A crowd of 22,673 that included plenty of Rangers fans cheered Darvish as he walked off after 111 pitch-es. He stopped and tipped his cap before getting high-fives from teammates in the dugout. He sat on the bench to watch the rest of the game, then joined the handshake line after the final out. And if Darvish was upset about coming oh so close, he didnt show it. I went that far, he said. Im really satisfied. Working from the stretch throughout even though he never needed to Darvish became the first pitcher to lose a per-fect game with two outs in the ninth inning since Armando Galarraga on June 2, 2010. Of course, the Detroit pitcher was denied only because of an infa-mous missed call at first base by umpire Jim Joyce, who later admitted he blew the play. On the second full day of the major league season, Darvish nearly picked up right where baseball left off last year, when there were a record three perfect games, thrown by Philip Humber, Matt Cain and Felix Hernandez. Darvishs 14 strikeouts matched a Minute Maid Park record and were the most by a Rangers pitcher since Hall of Famer and current team CEO Nolan Ryan had 14 in July 1991 against the Angels. Darvish arrived in the majors last year with much fanfare, having already been a five-time All-Star and two-time MVP in Japan. The Rangers paid more than $107 million to get him for five seasons. The 6-foot-5 righty quickly settled in with Texas, becoming an All-Star last year on the way to going 16-9 with 221 strikeouts. He also once flirted with per-fection, retiring the first 17 batters at Kansas City on Sept. 3. I think I got lucky today. I felt I pitched bet-ter against the Royals last year, Darvish said. I had better command in that out-ing. If he had been able to finish the job Tuesday, it would have been the earli-est perfecto in history. Darvish didnt really need a dazzling play from his defense as he shut down the Astros and chased the 24th perfect game in big league history including the one Don Larsen tossed in the 1956 World Series, and two in 1880. It was almost the second time in 10 months the overmatched Astros failed to put a runner on base. Cains perfect game for the World Series champion San Francisco Giants came against Houston on June 13.
DEAR ABBY: My husband, Wade, and I went into a convenience store near our home that we frequent regularly. A new employee -a pretty, much younger girl -stared at Wade with an expression of recognition and surprise on her face. When I asked him what that was about, he laughed it off and said I was imagining things. The next time we saw her, Wade acted nervous and started talking fast, as if trying to distract me. He seemed to be avoiding eye contact with her. She ignored me while obvi-ously trying to lock eyes with Wade. The third time, she again ignored me but smirked and giggled while we were checking out. Then she shouted, See ya later! to my husband as we were walking out the door. When I turned, I caught Wade glaring at her. When I asked why he did it, he replied, I looked at her like that because she was acting like an idiot. When I asked why shed be acting like an idiot if they didnt know each other, he started screaming at me. He called me crazy and threatened to leave me if I bring the subject up again. Should I ask her why she seems so amused by my husband? And why is he angry at me? -SMELLS SOMETHING FISHY DEAR SMELLS: By all means ask because Ill bet she is dying to tell you. Your husband may have been seeing her or someone she knows. He attacked you because he felt guilty about something and didnt want to discuss it. It proves the truth of the adage, The best defense is a strong offense. Believe me, you have my sympathy, but you need to get to the bottom of this, so dont put it off. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: What do you call additions to your family that result from second or third marriages? Our daughter died several years ago. I refer to her widower as my son-in-law, but what term should I use when I introduce his new wife? She has two daughters from a previ-ous marriage -sweet girls who call me Granddad. Technically, they are not my granddaughters -but what are they? These are just two examples of modern rela-tionships that seem to require a new vocabulary. I have tried searching the Internet for answers with-out luck. Any suggestions? -FAMILY MAN IN TEXAS DEAR FAMILY MAN: When introducing your late daughters husband and his wife, try this: This is my son-in-law Sam and his wife, Virginia. If youre asked for clarification, which I doubt will happen, give more details. As to the womans daughters who are not blood related to you, because they call you Granddad, refer to them as your granddaughters and leave it at that. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Where does the priest get the ashes for Ash Wednesday? -MARY IN VISTA, CALIF. DEAR MARY: Traditionally, palm branch-es from the previous years Palm Sunday are burned to create the ashes, and those ashes are retained for the next years Ash Wednesday. Some people keep the palm fronds from the last Palm Sunday tucked behind a cross or a religious picture in their home and bring them to be burned. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (MARCH 21APRIL 19): Offer assis-tance and good things will happen in return.

Taking respon-sibility for your actions will bring the results and rec-ognition you desire. Protect your physical and financial wellness. +++ LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22): Do your thing. Getting together with friends or peers could lead to con-versation that will encour-age you to pursue your dreams.

Romance is on the rise. +++ VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22): Listen carefully and make sure that whats being said is accurate. Let your common sense and gut feeling lead you down the right path. A contract should be considered, but only if you negotiate your terms explicitly. +++ LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22): A relationship will be enhanced if you are willing to make a compromise. Dont fight change when its essential to moving forward. People from dif-ferent backgrounds will inspire you. Love will blos-som. +++++ SCORPIO (OCT. 23NOV. 21): Get involved in events that will help you connect with influential people.

Emails that were appar ently written by the for mer investigator, Ameen Najjar, to Nevin Shapiro last year were attached to court documents filed this week by Shapiros attorney, Maria Elena Perez. In those emails, Najjar told Shapiro that he was fired on May 16, 2012 because the NCAA did not like the way I was moving the Miami case along. Another email five days later, again from Najjar to Shapiro identified in the copies of emails attached to the documents by only his prisoner number indi cated that the former inves tigator thought the NCAA was essentially giving up on the Miami case. My belief is that they simply want to get the case done, even if it is half or only one quarter done, Najjar wrote. I dont know if it is simply to meet some arbitrary timeline or the upper levels are trying to save Miami. I suspect its the latter. The emails were attached to a motion Perez filed in U.S. District Court this week, one that successfully sought to have a letter that Najjar wrote on Shapiros behalf before the former booster was sentenced for masterminding a $930 mil lion Ponzi scheme stricken from court records. On June 3, 2011, Najjar wrote to U.S. District Judge Susan Wigenton and said that college sports gov erning body could have utilized Shapiro in the future as a consultant and/ or speaker to educate our membership. Its unclear if Wigenton who sentenced Shapiro to 20 years in pris on and ordered him to pay more than $82 million in restitution, stiffer penalties than even the prosecution wanted ever actually con sidered Najjars letter. The AP reported on Najjars letter last month, and the NCAA said in response that Shapiro has not been and will not be a consultant for the organiza tion. Based on that, Perez said she felt morally and ethically compelled to tell the court that deception may have taken place with regard to the letter Najjar wrote on Shapiros behalf, and filed the motion accord ingly. Court records show Perezs motion was granted Monday. It does not change Shapiros 20-year sentence. Miami received its notice of allegations from the NCAA in February and moved last week to have the case dismissed, citing massive impropriety by the NCAA and how it handled the investigation. At least four other Miami coaches former head basketball coach Frank Haith and three former basketball and football assistants have also asked the case be dropped. The Miami case is still scheduled to go to a hear ing that is to begin June 14. Shapiro has said he pro vided dozens of Miami ath letes, coaches and recruits with benefits from 2002 through 2010, and that is largely why the Hurricanes will face the lack of institu tional control charge in the upcoming NCAA hearing unless the case is settled beforehand. ASSOCIATED PRESS This publicity film image released by Warner Bros. Pictures shows Chadwick Boseman (right) as Jackie Robinson in Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures drama , a Warner Bros. Pictures release. 42 shows why Jackie Robinson still matters By CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press LOS ANGELES Theres a scene in in which Jackie Robinson, the first black player in Major League Baseball, endures intolerably cruel racial slurs from the Philadelphia Phillies manager. Its early in the 1947 season. Each time the Brooklyn Dodgers first baseman comes up to bat, manager Ben Chapman emerges from the dugout, stands on the field and taunts him with increas ingly personal and vitriolic attacks. Its a visible strug gle, but No. 42 maintains his composure before a crowd of thousands. As a viewer, its uncom fortable to watch although as writer-director Brian Helgeland points out, if anything, the language we have in that scene was cleaned up from what it was. Such hatred may seem archaic, an ugly episode in our nations history that wed rather forget. But remembering Robinsons accomplishments is more important than ever, say people involved with and baseball historians alike. And because he was such an inspiring cultural figure, its more important than ever to get his story right. Helgeland, an Oscar winner for his L.A. Confidential screenplay who previously directed Payback and A Knights Tale, said he felt an enor mous amount of pressure to be faithful to Robinsons story, both because of his significance and because his life had been writ ten about so extensively. That included recreating games right from the box scores. So when Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) homers during a crucial pennant-race game off a pitcher whod dinged him earlier in the year, its a dramatic moment, but it also actually happened. Its always a tricky thing because its a movie, and even in this movie were trying to tell two years in two hours, he said. Youre obviously not seeing every moment, but the discipline I applied to the script was trying to make sure every moment was document ed. Helgeland began work ing on the film two years ago, with the blessing of Robinsons widow, Rachel, because he felt Robinson deserves a great, big movie. Robinson himself starred in the 1950 biogra phy The Jackie Robinson Story, which also details how Brooklyn Dodgers president and general man ager Branch Rickey (played here by a feisty Harrison Ford) had the courage to sign the fleet-footed Negro League player, despite receiving discouragement from around the league and death threats from fans. People would say to me, Youre making another Jackie Robinson movie? and Id say, What was the other one you saw? Helgeland said. (Racism is) always going to be a relevant thing. Its not a thing thats ever going to be eradicated. Society has to stay on guard about it and not get complacent about it. Boseman, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Robinson, grew up play ing basketball but said he learned of Robinsons importance around the same time he first learned of Martin Luther King Jr.s crucial role in fighting for civil rights. Robinsons uniform number has been retired throughout the league only New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera still wears it, and hes retiring after this sea son but every year on April 15, everyone in base ball wears No. 42. The story is relevant because we still stand on his shoulders. He started something I would even say maybe he didnt even start it, it started before him. But he carried the torch. And he carried it alone for a period of time before other people could help him, Boseman said. Still, its a challenge to depict the life of someone who was so inspirational without deifying him. In , which opens April 12, Robinson shows grace in the face of nearly incessant bigotry. Thats why Rickey chooses him of all the tal ented black baseball play ers at the time: He had the skills, but he also had the strength not to fight back. He would get his revenge on the base paths a little but he didnt shy away from contact when he was barreling into the catcher, those kinds of things, Helgeland said. You want to humanize him. The romance with the wife (played by Nicole Beharie) does that. The fact that he doesnt quite get along with (journalist and guide) Wendell Smith does that, which I think was the case in real life, he said. You kind of need to go for this vibe: Its the actor and the director trying to have a feel for what feels real and right in the moment. RBIs). K.K. Daniel had a two-run single in the fourth inning.
